Ideapad Y560: Need bios 59 version

Hello,

 

I need to delete the crappy 71 bios version and go back to 59.

Unfortunately, I am not finding the official bios59 64 bit version at the Lenovo website.

 

Its very disappointing that despite heating in 71 being a well known problem, forum messages contain links to shoddy websites such as

http://www.vdisk.cn/down/index/5398841

for downloading this BIOS (just look at the flash advertisement they are showing!!).I am very uncomfortable downloading this and installing as it could be a malware for all I know.

 

I purchased a Y560, due to heat problems had to change battery in 1 year 2 months and the new battery is now down to 50% capacity. Learn something from DELL, IBM about doing business and maintaining quality. Mass production and crappy products is not the best strategy in the long run!!

 

Lenovo folks: Wake up and make this available. Would appreciate a response from Lenovo support staff.

 

Regards

Prithvi

Have you tried doing a system restore and if worse come to worse a recovery? I'm not sticking up for lenovo because I know their service at times leaves a lot to be desired, but before you updated your bios (or any other firmware) you should have created a restore point in windows so as to roll back any ill effects of such an update.

Hi Prithvi,

 

regarding your heat problem, have a look here...

http://www.zynox.net/lenovo-y560-heat-problems/

please try first cleaning the heat-sink fins very gently with a soft toothbrush and vac.

 

BIOS version 30CN59WW for Y560 model... but may need to temporarily install a 32 bit Windows to be able to flash...

Edit: it looks like BIOS version 59 has been removed from this link!
