Thinkpad S1 Yoga 20CD Stuck screen off and Power LED on after Lenovo Bios Update Ran

2017-06-13, 18:13 PM

My S1 Yoga, 20CD-00B1US, is stuck with the screen off and the power LED stuck on. When I try to push or hold the power button it beeps two short beeps and the LED stays solid. I was running the Lenovo Bios Update Software directly from their site. The power cord was plugged in and no other programs were running (aside from background programs). Now it is just stuck like this. Any thoughts or help would be great. I can't even get it to force shut off. Thank you in advance!

Could you try pressing the small reset button on the bottom of the unit?




It sounds like a similar issue to this thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Thinkpad-Yoga-S1-Bios-update-failure/m-p/1800193
