Lenovo ideapad 120s bricked after bios update

Hi,

 

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

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....

I had the same issues & here's the alternate to fix it...

before we start, make sure that your device already completely shutdown & plugged out of charger.

here we go :

- pres the novo/reset button on the right side of the device.

- turn device on

- start windows normally

- click search on the taskbar & type lid

- the lid menu will appear, open it, then enable the fast startup...

-click ok & then restart.

 

personally, I hate the fast startup method, but I perforce to used it for this issue...
