My e530 failed BIOS update

2013-10-24, 8:21 AM

So i tried to update my BIOS for e530 edge model 3259=c2g

 

The update say BIOS UPDATED please restart (or something like that)

 

Now i only get a blank screen on startup.

 

Tried Unpluging BIOS battery, Tried Unplugging battery. 

 

Is there a bios reset jumper i could flip. Does anyone even know where the BIOS on the E530 is located. I assume close to the bios battery.

 

Any ideas welcome. IBM will carge $200 / 1000DKK just to look at the problem.

 

Maybe buying a new motherboard will be cheaper.

 

Thanks

The cost to replace a motherboard and to do a system check up through IBM would be prohibitively expensive.
