Lenovo System Update recommended a BIOS update so I clicked it. During the update, when I'm looking at the black and white text screen where it says "do not turn off the computer!!!" and shows a text progress bar, the laptop suddenly turns off. I have the power connected and battery charged. I did nothing, touched nothing, during this process. Now when I press the power button, the thinklight blinks, I hear beeps, and the screen is black. I had nothing plugged in to the USBs, no accessories, no external monitors, no DVD, etc.
I see from other posts that there is no fix for this? Seriously? It's 2019 and you still haven't fixed your faulty BIOS system updater? It said it was a 2018 update.

There may be better places to start your research, but here's one thread on recovery.
I have no personal experience, but bookmarked the thread "just in case":
