Hi, I just got my Ideapad and was super excited amd impressed with it.
Went about the normal way of updating drivers, softwares and BIOS. Unfortunatey, during the BIOS update it froze or I did something and I had to hard restart.
Upon restart it does start and everything but the display is blank. I can hear the logon sound and so now it is booting up normally. Tried to connect my HDTV as a monitor (which was getting connected earlier) but is unable to detect any signal.
This is my work laptop as well and so would appreciate any prompt help
Thanks for looking!

You could also try removing battery and AC adapter... then press and hold the power button several time for several seconds each time. Next, re-attach the AC and restart the laptop...
See if Video is restored.
If not, it seems likely that something went awry in the BIOS update process and it may be time to call support.
Sorry about the mishap !
