Lenovo Ideapad Flex 14 - 1480 Bios Mystery Update - Bricked

2016-12-23, 11:21 AM

My Flex 14 1480 is a week and a half old when the system update application prompted me to update my BIOS. As i recall it wanted to update my bios from 1.04 to 2.0

 

I clicked yes, and the bios update ran and initiated a restart of the computer. Unfortuatnply now my computer does not start up and i am greeted to LEDS being on but a black screen without a lenovo logo. 

 

I then tried to go on the Lenovo website and for the bios version that i just installed, there is no 2.0 version listed, specifically 2SCN20WW. There are no bios updates period.

 

Was this update pulled, and if so what can I do to recover it so it boots again.

thanks
