yesterday I tryed to update the bios of my 450p but at part 9 of 37 the computer hang up.
Now when I turn on the pc nothing happens... Windows do not boot and the monitor is black.
Can you give some ideas what I can do now?

Thank you for your fast answer.
I tryed it with a 2GB usb stick but after I run the program wincris windows says that the stick is empty...
Another question is where the right usb port is?
Is Fn+R the right combination for the U450p or Fn+B?
With kind regards

Try to run wincris in xp compatibility mode/under windows XP, be sure you select the correct drive, several users had problem with it. I don't know if windows sees the files written on the flash drive, I haven't tried it myself, but I saw somewhere that something around 6mb should be occupied if everything went fine.
You can download bios updater from here , then you can get the wph file from it by opening it with 7-zip utility (it's free and powerful archive utility which can be easily found in google).
About putting bios in recovery mode - you should follow these recomendations exactly: unplug battery, unplug power cord, press and hold hotkeys, plug in ac adapter, press power button. Even if you don't know the correct combination, it's easy to find it in several tries. There's a hint how to understand that the hotkeys are correct - if laptop enters the recovery mode, fan will run at full speed. I was able to find correct hotkeys on my y570 in several tries.
Hope this will help you.
