T530 after Lenovo system 5 update - Bios - blackscreen 5beeps -pause -5beeps

2019-06-19, 13:44 PM


I have a T530 (2394CG6 Model / Serial ********) and ran the system5update program and made a crucial fatal bios update. After that only black screen - 5 short beeps - pause - 5 beeps - Nothing happens.


I tried various keys and combinations to get into bios.

I disconnected CMOS Battery for 24hrs

I pulled the RAM 


No effect.


Any help for me?

Where would I get a new "bios" and how to get this "on my computer"

Hi Steichris! Welcome to our forums community. I seems to be a hardware failure on the system board base on the beeps. We suggest you to bring it to any of our authorized repair centers for further assistance. Here is the list: https://support.lenovo.com/in/en/solutions/ht118678?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6, filter the country. Choose the nearest outlet base on your location.
