Ideapad y560p dead after bios update

Good day.
I have a Y560p. I accidentally updated the bios with the update for the y560. When the system rebooted the laptop was dead as a doornail. The update completed correctly but only the cd rom light goes on when the laptop is on power now.

I have reseated the ram with no luck. I've also done a power drain to no avail. My laptop is not in warrenty anymore so I,ll need to fix it myself.

Any help will be appreciated.

Kind regards

Unfortunately since you Flashed a bios not for your motherboard you are out of luck and need a new bios chip or eeprom you either need to take apart your computer and replace your motherboard or have lenovo replace the chip is the only way.

Hi

Welcome to the forum!!

Please double check and see if you have attached everything you removed when fixing the hinges. Also swap the ram sticks.

I was getting ready to double check(for the 5th time), I did not try swaping the ram, but I did try removing hdd, cd-rom and ram sticks and put them back one at a time ...I'll give it a try
Thanks for the reply

Re: Ideapad y560p dead after bios update

When you tried to fix the hinges, what all did you remove?Did you follow any guide or did it on your own?
Also,just in case, did you remove the lcd socket or the heatsink fan equipment while doing so?
And did any wire get snapped?

Re: Ideapad y560p dead after bios update

ok, so ...here is what I did and what were my suspicions so far.

 

To get to the hinges, I had to remove all removeble parts:

-battery, hdd, cd-rom and some dummy cards

-led board, keyboard, upper casing 

-motherboard, I had to disconnect the heatsink fan, but did not remove the heatsink itself

-and finnaly the lcd unit, Ionly removed it from the buttom casing by unsrewing the hinges, did not take it apart since there was no need to replace the hinges

I used the maintanance manual as a reference but did not use a tutorial for the repair part ...but that was all screws and some glue.

I do not notice any damage to any of the cables and I am certain I did not force them. The only exception is the logo led power cable wich kinda took me by surprise when removing the motherboard upper casing(but that one works for sure) 

 

Ok so here were my suspicions:

-some disconnected cable, on the first try I did miss the touchpad cable as it was stuck under the upper casing, but that was it, the rest of them were in place, I just reopened it and all cables were ok.

-the cmos battery, I had to use some glue to keep it in place, and later(on the 4th try) I disconnected its power cable from the motherboard

-I took this oportunity to clean some of the parts, including the motherboard, I used some volatile alchool based substance for this, and I allready checked for traces of oxidation, found none (the computer did not start, not even once, so I think I'm safe here)

-the antenna cables comming from the lcd unit were a bit annoying to deal with, and I had to redirect them, they do not apper to be damaged and I assume they're not the cause, they are only antena cables after all. (I redirected them away from any heat source)

-on my 3rd attempt I noticed that on the motherboard, just over the left hinge(as you look at the screen) there are 2 black chips that appear to be the video memory chips, they might have been touched by the hinge before the repair, but I doubt they will cause this behavior if they fail.

-my latest suspicion is inspired by your post ...I did not remove the heatsink, do you thik there is any possibility that this could cause such behaviour? I repasted the cpu and video card 2 months ago.

 

I'm sorry for my english, I use a secondary computer and do not have a spell-checker for some reason ...and I'm not a native english speaker.

 

Thanks
