S10-3S: BIOS Update issue -> Recovery procedure possible ?

Dear all,

 

yesterday i flash the new Bios  "LM30_0128 / 38CN11WW" into my S10-3S (Memory compatibility Bios)

under Windows 7-Home 32Bit.

The Bios routine runs and after a while, the Ideapad booting self. But now, i only see a black screen after

PowerSwitch on. No Bios beep. No Infos. Nothing ! Only the 3left LEDs are white ! The Screen is death !

 

So i research the Lenovo Forums about to fixing this.

I found a lot of Informations about the BIOS Recovery Procedure and try different versions about that.

I create the "Crisis" Emergency Floppy /USB Stick with the Files inside the "LM30_0128.exe". No Problems !

I try USB Floppy and USB Stick but nothing happens if i press the different Keyboard Combinations:

FN+F, FN+R, FN+ESC, FN+B, Windows+F, Windows+R, Windows+ESC, Windows+B . No access

to floppy or USB Stick ! No Boot Process. Nothing !

 

Knows anybody the Keyboard Code to go inside the Bios Recovery Process ?

 

Thanks you very much

Hi,

Made the update with LM30_0128 and after reboot the machine stops as described....no access with any keystrokes etc.

Wrap and pack and back to Lenovo the only solution at this point!

Hi Roberto,

 

i think i can write in German to you ;-) :

Das ist ja wirklich übel, wenn es sich herausstellen sollte, dass der Updater hier einen Riesen Bug hat.

Ich dachte erst, dass ich während des Updates auf das Touchpad gekommen bin, aber wenn bei Dir

das gleiche Problem wie bei mir aufgetreten ist ...!!! Hast Du schon Lenovo kontaktiert ?

Ich hatte gestern einen "netten" Kontakt . Die Dame an der Hotline sprach nur gebrochen deutsch und hat mich auch nicht richtig verstanden. Sie meinte doch glatt, dass meine Grafikkarte kaputt ist - LOL !!!

Nach einiger Zeit hat sie mir dann aber eine RMA generiert. Ich habe aber meinen Ideapad noch nicht eingeschickt, da ich hoffe, dass wir über das Forum hier einen Hinweis bekommen, das Not Bios Recovery Programm zu starten.

Die Dame wollte oder konnte mir die Tastenkombination für das BIOS Recovery nicht nennen !

Eine Sache werde ich heute mal ausprobieren. In einem anderen Forum hat wohl ein Lenovo Experte gemeint, wenn man das Notebook mehr als 9 Stunden angeschaltet lässt (Bildschirm schwarz) wird ein automatischer Fallback auf das vorhergehende BIOS durchgeführt. Mal sehen ob's hilft !

 

Ich hoffe sehr, auf dieses Forum und eine kurzfristige Lösung für uns ;-) !

 

Viele Grüße aus München

 

Christian

Good Morning,

 

i read a very interesting information in an other Lenovo Forum.

An Lenovo "Insider" means, that we should switched on the Lenovo Ideapad for more than 9 Hours. After this, the Lenovo makes an automatic Fallback to the old Bios Version. Maybe it works. I try this out !

 

Best regards

I try USB Floppy and USB Stick but nothing happens if i press the different Keyboard Combinations:

FN+F, FN+R, FN+ESC, FN+B, Windows+F, Windows+R, Windows+ESC, Windows+B . No access

to floppy or USB Stick ! No Boot Process. Nothing !


Did you try to insert your USB-floppy (or USB-stick) to another USB-port?
