Y560 BIOS flash failed!

Hi everyone,


I have a Lenovo Y560 that I have owned for about a year and a half now and last week it began to randomly shut off without was as if the battery was not installed and power was disconnected.  Leading up to this I began getting battery error messages stating that my battery was no longer capable of holding a full charge and to consider replacing it but I was still able to run it off of battery power for some time (however battery life was noticeably diminished from when the laptop was new.)  Anyway after I began having the random shutdown problem I decided to try flashing the BIOS and during the flash process the computer completely froze!  After waiting for an hour or so I finally gave up and shut it off but of course now I am stuck with a dead laptop.  Is there any way to recover the BIOS without sending it back to Lenovo?
