Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2nd black screen after BIOS update

2017-09-29, 19:13 PM



Today I receaved my Thinkpad X1 Yoga 20JE and after I did a BIOS update the Yoga had a black screen. I followed the instructions of the BIOS update and the battery was fully loaded and the Yoga was connected to the power.
Now the screen is black and the LED in the power button is blinking green. The yoga is warm on the backside so it must be running. 

But I can't restart when I longpress the power button and the battery is inside so i can't put it out.

I also installed some other drivers with the Lenovo update tool and maybe windows did also update.

what could I do to make everything running again? 

Did I brick the BIOS?

So, when you press and hold the power button, it doesn't shut off?  It is a new machine, almost certainly with a warranty.  Don't mess with it.  Call support
