Re: Bios Recovery For ideapad laptops!!

Hi guys,

I found this thread looking for solutions for my problem, and I'm not sure this is the answer.

After I made some repairs on the hinges of my ideapad y560, I put the computer back togheter and it seems to be dead. I double(5 times now) checked all the cable conections and I'm sure that is not the problem.

Here are the simptoms:

-when I plug in the ac adaptor, the power led lights up as usual

-the battery does not charge(it might be full, but I doubt it)

-when I push the power button 5 leds light up: power button, ideapad logo, cd-rom(wich also makes a faint noise) and both power leds in the front.

-and that is about it, after 1 second(maybe less) they all turn off(except the ac power one, when ac connected)

-the same thing happens on battery power only

My question is: is this the behavior when dealing with a bad bios?

I did not update bios recently, I did update(and then reverted, i think) 2 years ago while dealing with a overheating problem.

Re: Bios Recovery For ideapad laptops!!

Hi Planet5121024, welcome to the forums,

 

the BIOSes are different on ThinkPads compared to Idea systems.  That said the one long and two short beeps on a T500 system indicates that one of the following components is defective on your system; mainboard, display or memory.  For more information please reference the systems Hardware Maintenance Manual (pdf p. 75).

 

If you require more assistance with diagnosis I suggest you search the ThinkPad T400 / T500 board, if you don't find an already existing discussion you could start one.

Andy

Re: Bios Recovery For ideapad laptops!!

Does this method apply to the Lenovo Y50? I had a bad flash but the laptop will still turn on but I have no video. Thanks in advance.
