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!

Flex 5-14ARE05 Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81X2 has run into this issue and I'm not able to boot up after trying all the suggested tricks!

 

I'll have to brick this POS. No more Lenovo for me as it didn't last even a year. My earlier model Samsung from 2016 still works fine.

 

I will never buy a LENOVO again. From this forum looks like it's a common issue and they are not addressing it. I'll be satisfied only if they send me a replacement.

I ended up sending it to costco concierge (since I got it from costco) and they're technical support said the mainborard was toast. At least I'll get a refund with their extended warranty.

Happened to my two of mine today. One is in warranty and one is not. Does anyone have a fix for this?
