T60 Bios update failure

2012-09-27, 19:48 PM

Hi, so I attempted to update hte Bios for my T60 using the Bios update facility, it was going fine until suddenly every process shut down and it said that windows updates were being installed.

 

After that the machine rebooted but it beeped around 4 times, I cant exactly remember the beep sequence and now it wont turn on, when I press the power button all the lights turn on but then turn off after a couple of seconds, only the AC, battery adnd the z with a circle turn on.

 

The screen is completly black and it dosent boot up.

 

I'd really appreciate any help at all, thank you.
