Q: Lenovo B590 BIOS update failure! BIOS FLASH! Black...

Hello everyone! I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn`t find any kind of solution for my problem.Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system, which also previously was Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). The installation went as usual, and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site, for my product. When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i`ve needed, i stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop, by the producer. So i proceeded to install the upgrade, restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so, but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual. At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing, things that i did not understand at the time (i have never encountered anything like that). After that my screen turned black. I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that, but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter. When trying to boot it all up again, the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else.After doing a little bit of research it appears that, somehowm i`ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something, and nothing else would work at this point. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, tryed resetting the bios by taking out the battery but nothing would work. I would be really thankful if anyone would be kind enough to point me one way or another as i do not know what to do at all. Around the webz i found some way of creating a bootable usb flash drive where i would put a compatible version of BIOS from the site and then install it onto the laptop but i do not quite know how to do that properly either, as the software they are pointing me to (wincrisis) is not working by any means.

hi, i have a lenovo b590 laptop (20208 type) with i3 3110m and nvidia gt720m and whenever i try to update the BIOS using the latest BIOS version available on the lenovo drivers download page , i get the following error: https://i.imgur.com/lKMLQV9.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/OkY9aQy.png this is the actual BIOS version on the laptop: https://i.imgur.com/1Tvib3d.jpg  how can i update the BIOS on it? i guess the problem is that the allready running BIOS is H1ETXXXX version and on the lenovo drivers download page is only the H9ETXXXX version which i guess isn't compatible with the 20208 version of the laptop and shows the "machine does not match with this bios" error. forgot to mention that my OS is windows 7 x64 on which i tried to run the bios update.  also will this laptop model gonna receive any new bios updates especially regarding the newly discovered intel security flaws or it's completely abandoned allready in terms of support?

Hi I have changed boot order and also I have disabled UEFI in order to install linux on other partition(not done yet). as I always do on other laptops. But now after changing to legacy mode I cannot access BIOS anymore. I got pxe-e61 error. OK so I insert USB linux drive and it is working properly with live boot.  But I realy need to boot Windows, but it is not possible becoáuse of UEFI being turnd off. Also It is not possible to access bios, because BIOS was accessed from recovery windows menu, whitch doesnt load anymore. Also when it is booting up (lenovo logo) I press esc (no other keys are workind) which open menu where I "can" boot to BIOS. So I press F1 menu dissapears but I end up with same PXE-E61 error. Any advice how to enter BIOS and change it back to UEFI mode ? thanks

I hope you meant to say Lenovo B590, because I cannot find any reference to a Lenovo G590 Not sure why, but others have reported that to regain access to the BIOS, you have to do the following. remove the battery and power, then remove the back panel.remove the BIOS battery.    See page 44, 45 and 52 of the Hardware Maintenance Manualleave it for a couple of minutes (I would say 5 minutes or more).replace the BIOS battery and the cover, then the battery and then the powerBoot up and use F1 / F2 to go into the bios Hardware Maintenance Manual Lenovo B590https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/b590_hmm_en.pdf I hope it works for you too. Good Luck,

Please ensure that you note the name of the CSR you speak to and also request a call number, the call number will possibly be of help at a later date.

A few days ago I had some problems with my HDD so I brought a new one.  To install Windows in the new drive I plugged in the DVD drive that Lenovo ships with the laptop and tried to boot from it. That failed and BIOS got like "programmed" or stuck with configurations that doesn't let it recognise any boot media no matter if it is a USB stick or HDD, no matter if I try to change the configuration of the BIOS it would always get back to the initial state of not being able to boot I even tried to reset it by unplugging its battery and the laptop battery but the only thing that happens is system time starting from 0 while any other configuration stays the same.  I thought this could be fixed using crisis recovery mode, but the laptop doesn't recognise the BIOS loaded on the USB and never make any sort of beep or alert noises, the screen doesn't show anything either and fans just get to 100% I really need help to solve this problem, it's like the BIOS got stuck in the last configurations before plugging the DVD drive in. (The Boot menu still showing that there's a USB booteable device even when it is not plugged in).

HiAfter unsuccessful BIOS update I made a brick from my G780. Maybe notfully. SYmptoms are below. When I pressing power ON button I hear a fan, HDD and DVD and led frompower, battery lights on, and led from hdd blinks one time. After thatnumlock's led is on. On screen I see nothing. It is just black. Even indark room when I'm flashing directly on it still see nothing. In thisstate Laptop react for pressing capslock or numlock buttons andchanging their state ON/OFF. I tried to do emergency BIOS flashing by unplugging AC, holding Fn-Band then power button. FAN is spinning on highest speed, pendrive thatI used blinks one time and after about 10 seconds starting flashingwith led for 20 or more seconds. I seems like reading bios QIWG5.binfile, but after those 20 seconds nothing happens. I read that G780should make one short beep, and after a while should start beeping ininterval several times. Instead of this is only silence and after a fewminutes shutting down without success. Symptoms are still like insecond paragraph. I tried every USB port, with or without battery, original BIOS that wasbefore update, this new bios.

Hello, I recently bought a Lenovo z50-75. A few hours ago I wanted to update my bios. It was updating and suddenly the laptop restarted and there was just a black screen. I could hear the fans running, but the keyboard doesnt work because if I press Caps Lock the light won't turn on. I searched on google and there I found some solutions (with pressing keys, removing battery, etc.), but none seemed to work.I also found something about the CMOS battery. I opened my laptop but I couldn't seem to find it. What can I do now?  Best regards, Max

A:Lenovo Z50-75 bios update failed > black screen

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Max !
From viewing your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual there is a motherboard CMOS battery.  Unfortunately from the illustrations in the manual it would appear that the CMOS battery on the Z50-70 is soldered directly to the motherboard and can not be easily removed.  In that case try removing the main battery pack again and then press the power button for 60 seconds or longer.  Hopefully the CMOS battery will not be able to keep up with the power drain and will clear the CMOS.  Then reinstall the main battery pack and try powering it up. 
For your reference, here is a link to the Hardware Maintenance Manual......
If that doesn't resolve the problem then I recommend you contact Lenovo Support for additional warranty service.

I'm on a fresh install of 64-bit windows 8.1, but the BIOS installer gives the following error message: "Your machine does not match with this BIOS. Update process will be halted." Why on earth is this? I googled the error message but this only seems to be a problem with people trying to upgrade the BIOS from win 10... but I'm definitely on 8.1, it even says Windows 8.1 Build 9600 in the corner. The only modification I made is that I upgraded the ram to 8 GB (from 4 GB), but the BIOS update fails even if I take the extra stick out.

I browsed a lot and I just found steps for bios recovery for N5010, I have M5010.
I copied .rom and .hdr file extracted from bios to USB stick formated to FAT (256MB), 
removed battery, inserted USB to all connectors, put power cable while holding "End" button.
Laptop powered up, but nothing happened. Power LED is on, but screen is still black.
Please, help. Laptop is out of waranty and I don't want to spend money for programming flash via programmer.
Thanks folks!

A:Dell Inspiron M5010 BIOS update failure - black screen

If you've waited for 20-30 min to see if the recovery worked to no effect, you really don't have another option at this point.  It'll likely cost about what a replacement board does to have the BIOS chip unsoldered, flashed and resoldered.
That said, $150 is a lot to spend on a system this old.  It may make more sense to replace the system.

Hello everybody,First of all please excuse me for the spelling I'm french .I would like to update the BIOS of my lenovo B590 but I work on Linux Debian stretch. But all the update utilities are only available for Windows. I currently have the H5ET63WW version (1.06) of the BIOS. I did some research on the Lenovo Support Center and realized that I needed to get the BIOS version H9ET75WW first (Here : https://support.lenovo.com/fr/fr/downloads/ds032260 ). So I downloaded the .ZIP file, however it contains a lot of files and I do not know which one to use ... Some friends advised me to go through a FreeDos Live USB to flash the BIOS, but not knowing which file to start, I find myself confused .Here is a recapiltulatif of the system features :  Thank you for your help, I'm well aware that the Linux environment does not facilitate anything but for my work I have no choice ...

Hi. I have a Lenovo B50-30 mode 80ES. It was set to require a password on startup starting with a capital "A". While experiencing charging problems, amongst other things, I updated the BIOS to 9CCN35WW, downloaded from the Lenovo support site. Since updating, the laptop no longer asks for a password on startup (No big deal, I applied a windows password), however, when pressing F2 to access the BIOS (which I need to do, the F keys are the wrong way round), it asks for a password, When pressing to strike a capital A, the laptop beeps and doesnt enter it. It wont accept capital letters anymore, therefore it wont accept the pre BIOS update password. I have referred the laptop to Lenovo service, including returning the laptop, and they have been nothing short of useless. They said they couldnt repair it under warranty because of "Marks, cracks, inappropriate treatment" and it would cost £255 for a replacement system board. I really couldnt see why I should pay for an issue created by their support system, so I asked them to return it unrepaired. Upon arrival, the laptop was immaculate, so I dont know what damage they were referring to. Is it possible to downgrade the BIOS to a pre update revision, to change the password and then reset it to one the new BIOS approves of? Thankyou in advance.

Hi All,

I recently started experiencing BSOD's on my PC and in the process of trying to fix this I have decided to flash my BIOS.
I flashed it but now when I start my PC I get the message "disk boot failure, insert system disk..."
I suspect the problem is coming from the fact that I have a dual boot system that let me choose Vista or XP, and that for some reason, the new BIOS does not recognize it.
I have NO CLUE on how I could solve this.
XP was installed first on C drive, then Vista on a separate physical drive.
Please help!

Hello to the BleepingComputer community,First of all I'm sorry I haven't finished some of the steps from the Preparation Guide. It's because these steps require a reboot (e.g. Step 6: Disable your CD Emulation Software - DeFogger will ask me to reboot the machine), and I have a bad feeling about the question if it is safe to reboot in my situation: I'm not sure if I have a type of malware which is ready to infect the BIOS - if it is so, then it could infect it much easier during the reboot process.- If there is a good way to find out what is the problem (and fix the BIOS threat part if it really is present) without rebooting / shutting down this PC, or at least without booting from this hard drive (which I feel is probably infected), then please tell me what should I do.- If you know a place / forum where I can get a specialized help for this (seemingly BIOS-malware related) situation, please tell me where I could go.- If there is no way to move forward, I'll go ahead and risk the reboot, and follow the other steps (steps 6 to 10) in the Preparation Guide, no problem.I kindly ask you to please read below the details of the problem as it occured to me, and the things I have tried so far.The PC is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2350 2.1GHz, Motherboard Biostar TA690G AM2 (with AWARD BIOS), 4GB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, and an ASUS EAH4870 card added a few years ago.It's with WinXP SP3, AVG Free 2012, (standard) Windows Firewall, and it's behind a router.I ...

To make a long story short, I've been asked to help fix a friends mom's U410 laptop which wasnt activiting Windows 8.1 properly (Was Windows 8 OOB). After struggling with the activation for a few hours, I backed up the data and decided to just run the Lenovo one key recovery. During the recovery process, the installation had failed. When I attemped to reboot, no Lenovo splash screen was loading - just a black screen (although i can hear the cooling fan start, and hear the harddrive spin up. I tried to access the boot menu thru the novo button, and nothing would load; still a black screen. After researching for a few more hours, I had found multiple threads about bios updates required to be able to access bios with windows 8, and other threads about gpus on these units booting to a second screen (which i did test, and the second monitor does indicate a signal). None of the solutions on those threads have given positive results.   Basically, I've run out of options and am looking for some suggestions. The only thing that shows up on the display at anytime is the small blue novo menu when the button is pressed (normal start up, bios setup, boot menu, system recovery - all of which just leave a black screen). Thanks.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro S/N YB03851970i7, 8GB, 256GB SSDWindows 10 Similar to another poster here, I experienced a BSOD, then on restart no drive was detected. Checked the connection and confirmed that the drive was firmly seated. A few threads online indicated that switching BIOS settings from UEFI to Legacy Support had worked for some people, however this was not the case in my situation. After figuring out the ssd part number using this tool: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/ibasepartslookup I checked prices and found that an exact replacement was a bit on the pricey side for an mSATA drive. I found a faster unit for almost half the price through Crucial: https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX200-250GB-mSATA-Internal/dp/B00RQA6LFA Upon receiving the replacement drive I referred to these instructions for replacing the unit: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Lenovo+Yoga+2+Pro+SSD+Replacement/52424 Note that the fasteners on the bottom of the laptop are not Phillips #00 as indicated in that article, but are in fact Torx T5. If you're a normal person and don't have a bit that size, a good high quality option is Wiha: https://www.amazon.com/Wiha-75985-Handle-Storage-MicroBit/dp/B00XIPTG4A Get yourself a bootable USB (search Microsoft support), and you'll be on your way. Hope this will be helpful to someone else who runs into the same issue. Cheers!

The old BIOS version is ?LENOVO 2RKT38AFR, 2/15/2008? the new version / .iso is ?2rj964a.iso?. However, there is no executable and even though I was able to stumble my way through the French BIOS set up and change the boot sequence to CD/DVD first, it will not boot on start up. The flash from within Windows BIOS version on the Lenovo site is an executable, but only supports a 32 bit OS. Is there a separate flash utility that I can use that will allow me to drive the new BIOS flash from inside Windows 7 64 bit? Basic steps would be good, I could never be accused of being a technical all-star. Thanks

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. There is no executable for the 64 Bit OS .. Try tapping F1 or F2 at start up .. That should give you bootable Options ..

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire Timeline X 5820TG, with the black screen of death. This happened a few starts after cleaning some virus with MS defender.
I have read that it is most likely a corrupted bios. I have also since ruled out the screen and the cmos battery and clearing the static without the battery.
Apparently after downloading the latest bios upgrade file (ZQ1_122W.executive) Acer support onto a flash drive, I used FN + Esc then the Power button to install the above bios file.
After this failed, I added a notepad with Autorun in brackets and then ( open = the bios e x e )file , as well and saved it as an I N F file, along with the executive bios file and retried. (This is the absolute extent of my coding knowledge).
But so far I have been unsuccessful.
I suspect I am trying to install the wrong bios file, and also installing it the wrong way as well.
The computer shops are just keen to sell me a new expensive replacement laptop, and so not much help there either.
Please, if anyone can help me I would be so appreciative and thankful.

I doubt if this is a BIOS issue but it's possible the computer was bricked after a bad flash that you said failed.
What happens when you tap F8 at boot? Do you get the Advanced Boot Options. I am assuming this is Windows 7. You cannot access Safe Mode with Windows 8 or 10 using F8.
Do you need any data on the hard drive? If not, would you be willing to do a factory reset? If you do need the data would you be willing to do a factory reset after recovering the data?
What was the OS that came with this computer?  Was it upgraded to Windows 10?
Do you have another computer you can burn an iso file to CD? I am hoping you can boot a CD or USB flash drive on this computer.

So the situation is like this, I have b590 20206 I was using partition editing software, so needed to disable some security settings to boot from USB, I switched as the guide from uefi to legacy and bang, the screen is no longer doing anything. I tried to download the official bios and flashing H9ET75WW by renaming it to BIOS.cap then using fn+r usb keeps blinking for a bit and it reboots but nothing comes up. Reading this forum yesterday, I managed to flash this one H9ET92WW, this one is the only one that makes the laptop light up again, I see the lenovo splash screen only with this one, but then it says realtime clock error, configuration changed restarting the system then back to black. Could you please advise what is it that I am missing? Thank you

Hi. I am trying to update my BIOS using download SP75637, but the update always fails.  I download the file and launch it and it tells me the process completed successfully, but when I restart the PC via the update process, the update fails.  The system states that there is a missing BIN file.  It also states that the file should be located in" C:\Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\New", but the update process doesn't even create this folder.  What is the problem? BTW, I am a retired IT professional and have perfomed BIOS/SW updates for 20+ years.  Why dosen't the update process create the necessary folders? TIA...JL

I have had a similar problem with this BIOS update this morning as well.  In my case, the update causes the system to reboot in an endless loop. HP Support -- Please, please pull this BIOS update and fix it before more users have this problem!  Thank you!!

Just purchased this new laptop last week. Got all my Win8.1 updates, installed my Office program, got that updated and went to update the BIOS as a last step. I followed the instructions on the Lenovo site, but when the last message came up on the flash utility, it did not reboot even after 1 hour - then the screen went black and has stayed that way! Followed the 'recover' instructions - I have pressed the novo button, but nothing shows up on the screen.. just black. I have a G50-70 which uses the "InsydeH2O" BIOS. Has anyone successfully restored the BIOS using a USB drive or other method? Should I open a ticket with Lenovo support? Feeling helpless here.. my new laptop seems dead. Thanks for any suggestions

A:Any way to fix BIOS update failure (G50-70)

Sorry, don't know why that post above showed up as a wall of text.I had spaces in there!  lol   So, from what I've read, you can't 'fix' a bad BIOS flash with the new Insyde manufacturer.(Some forum had really complicated instructions and a marginal sucess rate...) Oh well, was worth a try!

Long story (kinda) short.i got a virus, is a really mean virus, encrypts all my files, prevents antivirus programs from opening and redirects downloads.virus survives 3 factory resets, 3 hard drive formats and a reinstallation of Windows.This leads me to believe it has gotten itself into the Bios of my computer.so i downloaded the latest bios for my system, in this caseHP Consumer Desktop PC BIOS Update (ROM Family SSID 2AF3)through the installer on another computer i installed the bios update to my usb,inserted it into my main pc, Held down Windows Key and B, while booting my computer.this resulted in Beeps, and Wrooms from my computer, 10 minutes later, nothing happened.I decided to boot the installer directly from inside infected computer, but this resulted in a failure too.saying that the downloaded bios isnt compatible. What i am asking is how i should go about removing old (maybe) infected bios, and reinstalling this new one.

A:Bios Update Failure.

I am not aware of a way to flash the BIOS in Ubuntu but it might be possible if there is a Wine app in the version you have.  I have not experimented or read where anyone else has tried it either.  You might ask over in the Ubuntu forums.  Nor sure if it is possible in WIN PE 3.0 either.

I have a XPS 8700 that was running BIOS 10.0 from 2014/2015.  Today 6/26/17,  my manual update to BIOS 11 is hung up at 99% on the ME.  This has persisted 3 hours now.  Is it safe to reboot and try to recover the bios?  I have downloaded to USBs one copy of versions 10 and 11.  What is the safest?  What is the easiest way to get out of this situation?  PC has been working flawlessly until now.
