Another Y560 bites the (BIOS) dust

[ Edited ]

So, I'm joining the increasing crowd of BIOS update gone bad on the Ideapad Y560.


Made a reboot, tried to update it to 59, application wrote every 33 blocks, said Operation Completed, but then it frozed completely. Nothing worked on the laptop, mouse, keyboard, touchpad, nothing.


I then took off the battery, removed the A/C plug and the laptop went OFF. Well, it stayed that way. It's DEAD. Nothing seems to resurrect it. Nothing comes ON, not even the fan.


I began reading over the internet, I saw some advice here about removing and/or swaping the RAM modules, but it didn't work.


Now the "good" part: the laptop was bought at the end of August 2010 in the US, but now I'm located in Eastern Europe for a few months. The local rep of Lenovo service center said today that my laptop's warranty it's not covered outside US. Wow! It's like owning a desktop. From my point of view, every laptop, no matter what brand, should have international coverage of warranty. That's why it is a LAPTOP, to carry it around the world.


Is there any Lenovo oficial here that reads this? Can you help me on this MAJOR problem?


Thank you!

Hi Lao,


Welcome to Lenovo Forums.


You can check if your laptop is covered by the IWS (International Warranty) via link
