Funny thing I've recently received several messages from ppl that tried to reset BIOS on laptop by putting it to the fridge (and it didn't work). As you probably realise I never did it myself and DO NOT think it is a good idea (also haven't found any related info on ibm.com & hp.com). Computers are very sensitive to temperature changes. The instructions say not to use it below specific temperature, so if you want to try anyway (I don't think you have to !!) at least uncharge the battery completely.

P.S. Falling from the 3rd floor would reset laptop's BIOS for sure.
