Re: Bios updated problems (n200 3000 0687)

the letters 0769-EAG
 
0769 stands for the n200 model -> production series
 
EAG stands for the CPU / RAM / COUNTRY specification/configuration
 
the G in EAG is GERMANY....so his notebook was for selling in Germany....
 
so in my opinion there´s no problem to update the bios-rom file......

Hi,
I tried the 2.03 BIOS frm espenf on my N200 0769 B9G. BIOS now shows 2.03, system is still working, but there are no noteable changes (especially regarding the painful fan). Lenovo System Update now shows an update to this BIOS (yeah you get the 1.15 link which leads to the 1.02 file and after extracting you get the 1.05 version of the Bios, incredible!).
So have fun
HFB

All,
 
For those on this thread looking for the new version for the 0769 models of the N200 BIOS it is now up today HERE
 
This is version 1.15 which is the lattest from Lenovo.  I realize that there seem to be other versions being shared outside the e-support site purportedly reflect 2.xx numbers, but those may simply be a case of a parallel numbering scheme rather than reflective of a newer update.
 
Thanks.

Hi - I just updated the BIOS for my n200 0769 from this link and now cannot even boot the machine - I get the black screen asking me wether I want to start in safe mode etc, and am caught in an endless loop. I tried hitting the Lenovo toolkit and I get
 
NTLDR is missing press alt ctrl del to start so I can't seem to get to that either
 
I am running (WAS running) a dual boot - preinstalled Vista and then XP home.
 
Please help!

That's ok, you didn't kill your BIOS.

All you should need to do is put the Vista DVD into the laptop and boot with it. Find your way into the menu option for fixing the computer boot problems.

Hi Edmund - as I mentioned above I have presinstalled Vista. I cannot get to the Lenovo recovery, nothing.  I tried using my XP cd and also nothing, it says no hard drive detected. Any other ideas?

I assume that you are using the Vista bootloader, not the XP bootloader. So we want to try and run the auto repair tool that comes with the Vista DVD. Do you still have the Vista installation DVD?

I have presinstalled Vista. no dvd - only the lenovo care button which is also not working. I think I need the old BIOS v 1.02 in a bootable format....

I got it working  THANK GOD - I realised that I was currently working with XP only and hadn't enabled the dual boot....and that when I updated the BIOS I was getting the same error as when I'd initially tried to install XP because it's a SATA drive - I changed the settings and 'voila' I could reinstall XP again. I thought I'd just trashed my son's graduation gift!!!
