Wiped BIOS product info and Vantage

Hiya,

 

I have an out-of-warrenty Y700-15isk that bricked a while back: Looks like there was a power surge and the bios got wiped and also the product info in the ROM. Happily a local computer shop reloaded the BIOS but the product info is missing.

 

I've been upgrading the s/w and trying to load Vantage, but it refuses to run beleiving that my old Y700 isn't a Lenovo.

 

Would anyone know how to persuade Vantage to run, or a way to get the product info back into ROM?

 

TIA!

Re: Wiped BIOS product info and Vantage

What is the BIOS version shown in your system? You may need to re-flash the bios to a valid number from computer or service.

you could run msinfo32.exe, and ensure the brand is lenovo and SKU shows the correct system type.
