Re: Yoga 730 EC Update stuck at 0%

2019-08-01, 0:31 AM

Update: My laptop died and will not turn back on. I tried to call Lenovo Canada but they are closed until tomorrow. 

 

Does anyone have an issue with returning it after the warranty period? I purchased mine in May of 2018 so it just exceeds the warranty period. I feel like it's their fault if they push out a BIOS update without testing it first......

So far as it seems right now: the BIOS update fries the motherboard. It has to be replaced. You can open a case with Lenovo and send it back to them or see if another computer repair place can do it.

How do you open a case with Lenovo? I'm in Canada so all I found was a toll-free number to call them.

I called 877-345-1508. I think there's a way to contact them via the website and request they call you.

UPDATE: Upon calling Lenovo they thought that my motherboard was fried and had no correlation to the failing of the BIOS update.

 

As my warranty expired in May 2019, I wasn't eligible to get my machine serviced.

 

After reassessing the situation a second time, customer service is willing to service my laptop for no charge. I am awaiting an email and instructions to continue.

How and why should this even happen.. Just a simple Bios update is now giving users of this product headache. Lenovo should really answer this. 

My pc won’t even turn on just because I wanted to update it. 

Why spend such amount of money on a laptop just for this to happen.. 

I’m not even wasting my money on Lenovo products anymore.
