Can't Access (Lenovo G50-30) BIOS - Black screen

Hi 

 

is there anyway i can get my bios working again Smiley Sad

I had linux installed on my laptop and after updating it, i could no longer access my BIOS.

When i use the nova button on the side and click BIOS setup i get a black screen with a white line in top left.

 

I have tried booting into BIOS without the HDD in and no luck. :/

I also tryied updating bios but it just says it has latest version installed.

 

Thanks

Hello Jordell

 

Thank you for using the lenovo forum

 

There is not to much i can suggest in this case. You can try manualy installing the bios update by downloading it on a different unit on to a usb then transferring it over so if that helps with it.

Maybe a long shot but does anyone know how i get back into my bios settings.

Laptop: Lenovo G50-30
When i boot into bios setup, i get black screen with a line in top left of screen.

I had ubuntu installed but, i installed it in legacy mode instead of UEFI, I installed windows 10 on laptop and removed ubuntu, but i still have the ubuntu boot entry. 
It says " Ubuntu boot failed" when i boot my laptop and i still cannot get into bios to fix the issue. 

 

Any help will be great.
Already paid £50 to get it fixed but it never got sorted, they just did a fresh install of windows and i cannot flash bios as its on latest version for my laptop
Thank You
