G430 BIOS Problem... Please HELP...

I have Lenovo 3000 G430... 

I think that the problem is the same as other Lenovo notebooks which is BIOS.

It overheated when i didn't turn it off and without a fan... 

When i turn it on, the light are is up, but the screen is just black... 

I tried many ways to flash the bios but there is still no luck... 


i tried this, but it didn't fix the problem, i renamed JIWA1118.wph to BIOS.WPH cause WinCris didn't recognize any file name other than BIOS.WPH. 


The difference between G550 and G430 is the flashing procedure. On G550, you have to press Fn + B + Power Button.. On G430, you to Press Fn + R + Power Button. Thats the only thing i can do to read the flash drive by the machine. 


Is there any way i can try to fix my machine? 

i am a Filipino and i think that there is a better things to do before changing motherboards. Its to expensive and there is no stock here in the Philippines... 


Please Help me... 

I'm still hoping that i can fix my G430...
