Bios failed update p40 yoga

2016-10-25, 12:34 PM

I've just purchased my Thinkpad P40 Yoga 10 days ago (win 10 pro,CPU 2.6, RAM 8G, GPU Nvidia Geforce). Last night I just updated the BIOS (Because of  a message from Lenovo solution center app). After restart nothing than a black screen and the keyboard lighting up, also fan were still runing.

I tried to connected a external monitor to see the desktop, but it seems there is no signal from the laptop.

Is anybody here who had the same issue?

Thanks in advance

Sorry to hear. I got my P40 four days ago and I upgraded the BIOS I think twice per Lenovo Center app), any chance you remember the BIOS version you were upgrading to?

Unfortunately I don't know, I've just seen the message from update center and I've followed the procedure. but be aware it was the second time that I updated the BIOS firmware. I mean 2 or 3 days after I received my laptop I had the same message and I updated BIOS successfully, But secound time it was failed.
