    I used IBM's bios update and ran the update. I had the laptop plugged
    in and battery charged. I ran the exe spsukz34.exe, and the IBM page
    came up.. appeared to run some update, then the system shut down. Now
    when I restart it it beeps a few times and the hard drive light lights,
    but nothing happens. The screen is black.
    Any Ideas on how I can fix this or am I totally screwed?

    Sounds like your totally screwed. But make sure you power button isnt
    stuck and you power adapter is good and the laptop is infact getting
    power. Give it a couple of smacks on the cas where you rest your hands
    then see if you can get to the set up screen or not.
