Another Y560 bites the (BIOS) dust

[ Edited ]

So, I'm joining the increasing crowd of BIOS update gone bad on the Ideapad Y560.

 

Made a reboot, tried to update it to 59, application wrote every 33 blocks, said Operation Completed, but then it frozed completely. Nothing worked on the laptop, mouse, keyboard, touchpad, nothing.

 

I then took off the battery, removed the A/C plug and the laptop went OFF. Well, it stayed that way. It's DEAD. Nothing seems to resurrect it. Nothing comes ON, not even the fan.

 

I began reading over the internet, I saw some advice here about removing and/or swaping the RAM modules, but it didn't work.

 

Now the "good" part: the laptop was bought at the end of August 2010 in the US, but now I'm located in Eastern Europe for a few months. The local rep of Lenovo service center said today that my laptop's warranty it's not covered outside US. Wow! It's like owning a desktop. From my point of view, every laptop, no matter what brand, should have international coverage of warranty. That's why it is a LAPTOP, to carry it around the world.

 

Is there any Lenovo oficial here that reads this? Can you help me on this MAJOR problem?

 

Thank you!
