BIOS update = Black Screen; please help :(

Hi there dear Forum members

Today a sad thing happened.
I downloaded the BIOS update for my Lenovo S10 - 4333- 28G.
After the download finished, the app oppened, but a error message
pop'ed up that about shutting down all the other running programs.

I was like: "well, sure ill just close my Firefox..." .... that was when the net-book froze.
After 5-10min, I realized that my net-book just had a crash. So I did a reboot (hold down the Power button).
When the it was about to boot, the screen was totally black.
AS I know how to update BIOS and flash my Android phone I knew this was wrong.

My question is: Is there a way to flash back the net-book?
I've been googling around, and found a thread that said that a Hard BIOS reset was possible,
but the thread was closed so I couldn't ask for further help there.
If any one got a Guide for How To do the CMOS reset on the motherboard - or a way to flash it beside the Hard Reset - then please let me know.
I miss my baby, the S10 just seem so.... life less...

// Schou - Thx in advance

Re: BIOS update = Black Screen; please help :(

i found this guide:

 

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-S-series-Netbooks/HOWTO-BIOS-recovery-on-S10-2/m-p/176976

 

But it is only for the S10-2, i have the S10 - 4333 - 28G.

A guide similar to that would be awsome for my lenovo Smiley Happy

And i also tried the:

 

1) shut down the computer.

2) disconnect the A/C

3) remove the battery

4) press the start button 60 seconds

5a) connect the A/C without battery

5b) connect the battery and the A/C and turn on the computer.

 

none of it worked so far Smiley Sad

I think S10 and S10-3T has the same BIOS type: Phoenix. S10-2 has Insyde Bios.

 

You can try what I posted here http://forum.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-S-series-Netbooks/How-to-hack-the-S10-3T-bios-for-deleting-hardwa...
