Thinkpad W701 - Deleted BIOS, mysterious USB/Esata problems before update


Yesterday I was supposed tto try out my new esata external disk, I had used it before with my EX495 homeserver, without any problems.

But when I conncted it to teh W701 it seemed like the connection failed and the drive fell to sleep when I tried to write to it. When I used USB it worked perfectly, and with the server esata worked without a hitch.

After trying that some time, I decided to try the lacie updater, and then a reboot. After that all of the usb ports failed.


I had allready looked at the Lenovo updateprogram, and found some updates, so I controlled the computer with the trackpad, and updated, but when the computer rebooted suddenly, and screen showed a underscore blinking and that was it. After that the computer screen went black and won't turn on anymore.


I have it it for 4-5 weeks now, and after 1 week the MB failed when setting in new ram, and was switched, now it has failed again - is there anything I could to, or does this one have to go in on service again?
