Fail Bios ? motherboard gone ?

Had a very Bad day

was facing some heating problems in laptop so tried updating the bios

but it caused fan to stop working after some while then tried to revert back through the backup that was made

but it stopped after turning off with black screen and other lights lyk navigation toolbar working then i removed the battery and it got off

then when i tried to pressing the power on button nothing happens it looks like it is dead so having few questions in my head so would be happy if People can help

1-is the motherboard of laptop gone ?

2-this is only bios problem no hardware problem ?

3-will this epic fail covered in the warranty ?

4-how much time it will be taken by service centre to solve this ?is it a long procedure or 15 min  procedure ?

 

 

Hope to have a reply soon

Re: Fail Bios ? motherboard gone ?

there are some ways to recover bios ( search the forum )
if that doesn't work, call lenovo support line and ship it back to service. warranty should cover it.

Re: Fail Bios ? motherboard gone ?

@yigit thanks for reply

ya had already seen ways to recover but am not able to figure it out properly thus facing problems

anyways went to the service centre and gave the person the laptop

the person said he will analyze and let me know

i didnt bothered to tell him about the bios that i messed up

anyways wanted to know whether he will knw its bios issue ?

he will replace bios ?

or is the motherboard or laptop  dead ?

well i would be happy if you could reply with will instead of should Smiley Very Happy

ok now the laptop is with him

any chances he will call me and tell the warranty won't cover it and you will to pay for the motherboard ?what shall i do then pay for the motherboard or sell the remaining laptop in parts ?

thanks in advance...

Re: Fail Bios ? motherboard gone ?

probably you broke your mainboard while installing bios.
service will replace the mainboard.

warranty conditions may change by country but it probably will cover. if it won't, please, come back here and let us know the situation so we can advice.
