    Hmmmm.... BIOS upgrade interruption has screwed up BIOS and that’s the reason why your notebook doesn't start properly. BIOS is damaged now.
    In such case you need professional help by authorized Toshiba service provider.

    On this forum you can find many threads about similar problems. Some people have tried to fix this alone and if you are interested to read how one other forum user has fixed it check please this thread.

    Ayway, you can contact nearest Toshiba service, explain the situation and ask for help.

    In such cases the EPROM needs to be reflashed once again using BIOS crisis disk.
    Usually this needs to be done by Toshiba authorized service provider. But of course this would be possible only if EPROM module has not been damage.

    What to say: try to procedure (link above) posted by Bob. In case it will not work, the ASP is your next contact point.

    Good luck
