failed update of BIOS what can I do?

2010-04-13, 13:53 PM

Hello,

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad s9e and I wanted to upgrade my bios but it got stucked and I had to turn the power off. When I tryed to restart it I got the follwoing problems: the monitor is black and when I press the power on button it just wants to start but it doesn't do anything (I can hear it wanting to start for about 1 second and then it stops and nothing is shown). I think this is because of the wrong update of the BIOS. Can you tell me how can I resolve this?

you would need to send the laptop into the depot and get it fixed by them.

I think lead_org is right, I doubt the bios chip is removable so the only way to get it fixed would be to send it to Lenovo and pay them to fix it.

Instructions for recovery are in this  TOPIC , and it should work from a bootable usb memory stick.

Since I live in Romania I cannot do that. Is there any other way to recover or REWRITE the BIOS?
