BIOS update fails

I was performing a BIOS update on a SL 510 thru the Lenovo update utility. The AC adapter was connected to the laptop. The laptop froze during the update process and I was unable to get it to respond. This was after it had been running for at least 5 min and the fan was running at high. I was forced to shutdown and now the laptop will not POST. Is there any way to recover the BIOS or is this unit done?

Re: BIOS update fails

Hi pkuefler,

Please remove all power (both battery and AC) overnight then connect AC only. If problem persist, please contact local lenovo for hardware check.

Re: BIOS update fails

most likely you bricked the motherboard, which means the only remedy requires a replacement of the motherboard.
