I have Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK type/model 80Q700DRSC.
I want to update BIOS, so I downloaded D5CN47WW. In text file it is written that this is BIOS for my computer.
Everything seems fine but when I execute BIOS exe file it says that this is BIOS for Lenovo Paris 300 notebook!
What Paris now? I tried to google but only can find Paris in France.
I am user of Lenovo notebooks for many years (from IBM ThinkPads to this days) but when txt Readme file said
this is update for your computer, it was! This is confusing for me so I cancelled update.
Can anybody explain this mistery?
Thanks in advance

Lenovo Ideapad 300 151SK with the same problem.
the screen is very dark . if I connect it to external screen it works.
I tried to update everything.
i'd like to update the bios (say critical ) but before download appears a message that is only for Paris version...
anybody can help?

After one day, the screen comes again bright (so I understand that the problem is not because the leds are burnt), but sometimes turn dark again, is very annoying situation, I update nearly everything, but the bios not yet because in the update process before the download there is a message that the bios is only for Lenovo Paris.
I've seen other posts in the forum with this problem but with no answers from Lenovo support (very strange)
is it possible that nobody knows anything about this?
or maybe I was not able to find the post with the answer
Thanks in advance for the reply.
