Did the 64bit update. Worked fine on g550 with nvidia graphics. Fan cycling is much lower now and the low battery beep is gone too.

 

go ahead folks

i've downloaded bios update from http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_2579.html#

After update and restart my computer is unable to boot. It's frozen and screen is blank.

 

Is this covered by warranty? It's not my fault, updater finished updating and rebooted computer, but it froze after reboot.

bouza,

 

This should be covered by warranty - you downloaded and applied a Lenovo update.

 

Can you tell us a bit more though?  I am concerned that engineering has moved forward with making the 64 bit available and we still have reports from customers such as yourself.

 

What BIOS version was your machine running previously?

 

Your battery was fully charged, you were running on AC, and you had shut down all other applications exception the BIOS update, correct?

 

Did the system display a message saying the flash was complete before you rebooted?

 

I'm not implying any fault on your part, just trying to understand.

 

Thanks!

 

Mark
