bios updating makes computer unusable

hello,i recently(5 days ago) equiped an Y560 20038 (8 or B not sure) and i have downloaded BIOS update via official site

well,after reading instructions,and making proper actions before flasing i have extracted the downloaded archive,and runned the flashing ulity process wich has caused the 20 minutes respond blocking at "veryfing block 71" status display,since ideaPad stoped responding i had no other way to restart a computer besides unpluging a power jack and removing a battery...since then computer wouldnt boot,not showing lenovo logo,dosent even starts the lighting of lcd panel,just powers up and runs slidenav led's and runs a proc. heatsink..... damm'n paid 800euro for now non-working unit..... i'll call tomorow store where i buy y560 and ask what to do...i hardly recommend that bios upgrade must be done in they service centre,because if that occurs to service perssonel they have a problem,in this case-i have a (800e) BIG problem...i hope that service waranty covers that and i hope that they will not publish an product-braking BIOS on official site...othervise i will visit an local lenovo dealer with an baseball bat.......after loosing nervs on finding ATI driver(cause link on they tage is broken) and (still dont get worked) webcam...now this happens....**ck camera....i wont my win7 x64 and data back......

Re: bios updating makes computer unusable

@wicked_mann,

We have not heard that the BIOS 71 had brick any Y560 so far... We are currently discussing about the BIOS 71 causing issues with the Lenovo Energy Power Management.

Did you reboot your laptop before flashing the BIOS?
