Re: G550 Bios Update Fail

Hi, no I can't. When I push the power button, led lights are on, dvdrom turns for a while and that is all. The screen stays black. Looks like a dead machine.

Re: G550 Bios Update Fail

remove the battery, un-plug the ac power, press power button for 30-40 seconds, replace the battery and check if it works.

do you see lenovo logo at start-up?

Re: G550 Bios Update Fail

Yes, I do, I have already spoke to a Service Center, it looks like it is necessary to send it them to repair itSmiley Sad I'd be glader if I could do it on my own, but they will repair it. I hope.

Re: G550 Bios Update Fail

there're ways to recovery bios but when you have valid warranty, it'd be easy to ship it back to service.

G550 will not boot up after BIOS update

Hi, I did a BIOS update on my Lenovo G550 laptop and now it won't boot up at all.  It comes on, you can hear the fan, but just get a black screen.  I spoke to a guy who fixes laptops and he said something about taking it apart and doing something with the battery/ CMOS.

 

I have taken the back off but really don't have a clue about what to look for or what to do next.

 

Any help would be very much appreciated.

 

Jill
