Hello everybody! I'm a new entry in the forum, but i am a 6 year old user of a Lenovo 3000 N200 (0769) and i am very happy with its services so far! However, after a format that i make, i saw a BIOS update for this model, so i decide to install it. But the result wasn't the οne that i wish for. My poor laptop now when i try to open i can see just a black screen and nothing else. Although, i can hear the fan and the LEDs of the AC, HDD are light up (HDD's led is off after while). The laptop has got Windows XP 32bit.
I think i must recover the old BIOS, but i would like to see your suggestions and anwsers first.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I’m sorry to hear that your N200 is displaying black screen when tried to turn ON after updating the BIOS, Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer, check if the display is working also check if the computer display is working in External display.
If the issue persists even after performing the above step, I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance. Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I’m sure they will be a great help.
Hope this helps!!!
Do post us back if the issue still persists.

Thank you for the answer!
I already try your suggestions but the result is the same. Also, i connect my laptop to my desktop's screen too and remains black.
If i change the internal battery because i cannot just remove it and place it back here because its battery is solder on the motherboard, can i try to buy a new one and place it back there?
Is there an other way to recover an older version of the BIOS?

I'm sorry to inform you that there is no option avaiable to get back to the older version of BIOS, but as the integrated battery cannot be removed by the end user as informed earlier in the post contacting the Technical support team is the best way to deal with this issue.
Do post us back for further queries.

Hey guys the problem stills exstis with my laptop. If i call them to help me they'll tell me to send this to them to fix it and i will pay a lot of money for this BIOS update, so it's better for me to stop dealing with it...
Thank you for the help
