BIOS update frozen YOGA 730

I tried to install a BIOS update for my laptop through Lenovo Vantage. The system restarted but the screen froze (see attached picture). Both the touchpad and keyboard do not work. I tried holding down the power button but that did not work either. Also, the fan has been running quite loudly for 4 hours. The laptop is only 5 days old.

Re: BIOS update frozen YOGA 730


I have the same Yoga 730-13IWL and could update without problems. Did you plug it off whilst updating BIOS, or did you have less than 50% battery while updating?

I think it finished the update correctly since it says 100%, but couldn't do the restart. Any updates on what happened next? Is it still same?

It's normal that it runs the fans with fullspeed because while flashing BIOS the laptop loses control of the hardware. Once the BIOS is flashed and your computer is restarted, it should be normal again.
