V5-531

Hi all, I have a V5-531 that won't start unless you push the power button about 25 times.  Otherwise the led and fans come on but it doesn't boot.  When is does boot it works fine.  I've narrowed it down to a corrupt bios.  I'm trying to flash the latest bios but it exits with the error message "216 fail to read bios from rom status =3" is there a command line for the exe that will force it to write to the bios without first reading it.  I know this is dangerous but as it stands now the notebook is a brick.
