So it does beep when it does the BIOS update? That is bad design. My sister forced the laptop off since it was beeping at max volume when she was trying to sleep in her dorm. BIOS updates should be SILENT. I regret not buying a Dell.

Finally got mine back from warranty repair. Sent on 3/24, got back today 5/25. Lenovo extended my warranty for free because of the long repair time. Repair was outsourced to Cell Tech Inc. They were OK. Very slow to respond to emails but they did respond. I've almost fully updated the laptop and have not experienced the same issue. It's running fine right now. The only thing I haven't done is the "Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2". I think that is what bricked it last time and I don't want to risk it. This is my daughters laptop and she has been without for so long now and we have a lot of catching up to do in SWTOR!
