Lenovo ideapad 120s bricked after bios update



I have a new Lenovo ideapad 120s which came with Windows 10. My daughter got a popup for a bios update and clicked without knowing what it was. After the bios update the screen is dark after reboot so I suspect the computer is now bricked.


I found a tutorial for resetting the bios by disconnecting the battery, but that didn't work.


I was wondering if this model has a way of overwriting the bios via usb (I've seen descriptions of such a solution for other Lenovo models)?


Full name / model:


Lenovo ideapad 120S-14IAP
Model name: 81A5

What's DOS?

Re: Lenovo ideapad 120s bricked after bios update

any solution to this ?


I bought the same Ideapad. So far so good.


I did see a popup for BIOS update, but I ignored.


I will wait a bit....
