Lenovo G40-70 Bricked by BIOS Update

Q: Lenovo G40-70 Bricked by BIOS Update

Hi all, Need help on my Lenovo G40-70 that I've just bought 6 months ago where I accidently bricked the laptop after BIOS update. It seems during the BIOS updating process it when well but after 2nd reboot there's some message on the screen that the BIOS failed to update factory setting and it freeze on the message for quiet sometimes. After a long wait I decided to long press Start button for hard reboot. Then the scary part comes in where it seems the laptop can't longer shows the Lenovo logo & cannot even boot to Windows, just black screen. Hope anyone can help me on this and give some advice on what I'm going to do. I would like to tried myself first before ending up with warranty claim since I'm worried I've brick the warranty due to wrong BIOS update procedure....

Preferred Solution: Lenovo G40-70 Bricked by BIOS Update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Lenovo G40-70 Bricked by BIOS Update

hi mahdhir2005,

Im sorry to hear that.

I would suggest you call the Lenovo Technical Team regarding the Issue. If it is the BIOS that's causing the issue then there maybe no source or option to have it fixed without they're help or service.

If the BIOS software you downloaded was from a legit Lenovo Site and correct model, then I think It will be ok to Just report them what happened and ask for possible option.

Hope this helped
Thanks!

Hello,  I got an update from lenovo system update and I accepted the update. After the reboot, it went into the bios and I just selected "exit without saving". Then everything's dead now. The computer powers on, but it doesn't even show the Lenovo logo. When I try to go into the bios with that small button, the same thing happens. Is there anyway to recover the bios with a flash drive somehow? I found an instruction to recover the bios using the USB drive, but it needed a BIOS.PWH file which I don't know how to get for Lenovo Z510.  PLEASE HELP ME! I'm freaked out

Hello Lenovo community.I own a s205 and have been quite happy with it, that is until yesterday when I encountered a problem I can't seem to fix.I wanted to switch from windows 10 to kubuntu. My s205 would be on it's eight OS, but I?ve bricked it somehow - and i think it's the BIOS.What happens now when i boot it is; there is a black non-lit screen for about 10 secs, then it blinks "Lenovo Misto Ontario" (http://puu.sh/ppPdp/e95611ddf1.jpg) extremely quickly, I think it's the beginning of a boot message. - and then it's just a lit black screen from there on out. i've had it on for upward of 20 mins and nothing happens.I suspect it's a BIOS corruption of some sorts but I?m actually not sure. I've tried reinstalling the BIOS, via the Pheonix Crisis Recovery which several threads here has explained. But I don't know if it is the BIOS because I get the same boot sequence each time. fn+b, fn+r, fn+esc, win+b, win+r, win+esc, or the right arrow key (like one suggested) seems to make no difference to this, niether dose holding the power button for any length of time, after a few secs of pressing the power button the laptop just switches off again, like a hard reset.Threads I?ve looked at and tried;https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-U-and-S-Series-Notebooks/S205-Issues-with-Bios-Recovery/m-p/5231...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-U-and-S-Series-Notebooks/LENOVO-BIOS-RECOVERY/m-p/332989#M11737http://askubuntu.com/questions/549193/black-screen-restarts-after-upgrade-to-14-10I...

Hello, For the last couple weeks my T530 has been nagging me to do a "critical system update" from Lenovo. Today I caved and ran the update. Turns out it was a bios update. After the update it said "Bios update successful" and then my screen went black. My laptop won't boot at all now the screen just stays black, no pre/post screen or anything.  I don't have access to another computer here so I can't make a recovery disk for a week or so. Any ideas on what I can do to try and resurrect this beast?  Ive tried many hard power offs to no avail.

Hi, So I have an old ENVY 15-3000 that I was performing a BIOS update on a few days ago. The SSD in it isn't the factory original OEM one so there isn't an HP_TOOLS partition. So after the update ran inside Windows, it rebooted and is now in a bricked state. The caps lock light is flashing, and the airplane mode key is solid orange. Following HPs instructions on how to make a BIOS recovery USB stick, I have found that the installer files HP provides for this model are outdated and do not have the capability to make a recovery USB drive. Is there anything I can do about this or is it just bricked for good? Thanks,Rashed.

All I wanted was to update the graphics drivers (ATI), but for some reason that required that the BIOS be updated to 2.04 or higher. SoI updated the BIOS to 2.26 using the windows utility, everything appeared to work correctly and it said time to reboot. When I rebooted the system, the POST screen came up and the fan went to full tilt and it just stayed like that. With a sinking feeling in my stomach, I sat and watched it for 10 min. but nothing happened. The system was completely unresponsive to any input, including the power button and I eventually pulled the plug and then the battery to shut it down. When I plugged it back in... nothing. Not even the AC power LED comes on when it's plugged in. If I press the power button, the CD drive initializes, the HD spins up, and after awhile it gets quite warm to the touch, so I guess the CPU is getting power although the fan isn't working which makes me nervous. Is there any hope? Should I spend the money to buy a USB floppy and try the boot-block recovery method (already tried a few times with a USB key and nothing happened) or should I just put that towards a new motherboard?

A:Z61m bricked by BIOS update

A floppy drive is necessary piece of equipment for anyone who plans on using Windows since you'll encounter issues which may require a floppy utility to solve. If you're fluent in removing the palm rest, it is worth disconnecting the battery to ensure BIOS is flushed and reatttempting normal boot before continuing recovery techniques, if you determine your BIOS is still truly smoked and if you haven't become completely disgusted with the Z6x, you can buy them preowned used from IBM.com for about $350 and just like buying a certified pre owned Lexus and it includes a seven day no questions asked "I just don't like its face" return warranty and a 90 day warranty just as good as the new systems warranty.  That warranty is upgradeable and it will include the latest BIOS and software updates including your latest video driver that got you into the mess.

Here is a method that worked to rescue a HDX18 laptop running an Insyde BIOS. Download the latest BIOS for this model.  ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp51501-52000/sp51618.exe Save it to the desk top and use 7-Zip to "Extract Files, when you open it you will find a file by the name of 3610F34.fd Rename that file to 3610.BIN (I used capitols) Grab a USB flash drive 2 GB or smaller and it should automatically be formatted with FAT32, when it's done copy and paste your newly named BIOS file on to the flash drive, safely eject the drive from your computer. (do not just pull it out from the USB port)  On my Bricked HDX18.   Remove the battery and adapter and hold down the power button for 30 seconds to do a hard reset.  Plug in the flash drive in one of the left USB ports, hold down the "Windows"+"B" key and while your holding it down plug in the adapter.   Boot up and the laptop should start to beep and read the flash drive, release the keys and when finished the laptop will shut down. Leave it sit for 3 minutes and boot to Windows.  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  This method did not work on my dv8, nor did it work here for mrtranmsb :  http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-systems-and/Please-help-recovery-Bios-HP-DV4-1326TX/...

Simpy put I went to update the bios on my notebook as I have previously without incident.  Well this time the update downloaded, installed and powered down Windows Vista 64bit SP1.  After that nothing! The power lights come on but that is it.  No HP Screen, No MSFT Screen no nothing.  I honestly think this is a bios update caused by HP's own update. This is the update I installed: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-67379-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&...   Long story short HP online chat support was very helpful and will be sending me a prepaid next day air box to ship at their expense to fix this problem.  Any comments are welcome but I strongly recommend anyone with this notebook not install this update!!! I already took out the battery, unseated the ram and the like with no results.  I sure hope they can fix this.

A:DV4-1120us bricked by HP's own Bios update

lordvader311, several of us already bricked our dv4s with HP latest bios update but you can fix it yourself in just a few minutes as followsBTW, the credit for this goes to PONGSTER who told us all about it.....  Edit Note: I've edited the steps for dv4-1140GO users. By the way, the 1125nr, 1140go and the CQ45 seem to share the same board, as they use the exact same BIOS Flashing application.  This bodes well for all of you who need to get theire dv4 fixed, instead of sending it in for repairs.  Remember, if you messed up your BIOS, sending it in for repairs is not the only solution, as I found out, after researching on all possible solutions.  Follow these steps before sending anything in for repairs  I have a dv4-1125nr.  I'm not sure this will help, but you may as well try it out before sending yours in for repair.  I fixed my messed BIOS update by following the exact steps I'm going to outline here.  There is hope, and you don't need to have your Motherboard replaced.  Simply follow the instructions and you should be typing on your dv4 again in no time.  It took me about 10 minutes, tops, to get all this done. Here we go: Okay... here are the exact steps I took to get my dv4 back in working condition after a failed BIOS update using HP's buggy update (I just had to repeat what we all already know... ) I have merely cut and paste 0.0's steps, so all credit goes to him and the genius over at the Acer sect...

If I switch the machine off, then on, the same thing happens: stuck at Acer boot logo. I cannot enter the setup utility (F2) either.Note that the machine still reboots when pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete, and the keyboard illumination command (Fn-F9) still works.Any idea?

Well I mistakenly decided to try updating the BIOS on the Stick 300 before I was going to try slapping x64 Windows 10 on there.....and it bricked spectacularly, using the EFI USB method.  Found these forums and I have the same behavior as others, blue light on for a bit, flash flash activity on attached usb memory stick, blue light off, and it repeats, zero HDMI output to the monitor at any point. I cannot find a way to ask Lenovo about a repair option.  I would like to talk or email someone about sending it in to be addressed for a certain price type of deal. It is out of warranty, which I find strange that the warranty is so short on this product, and that seems to make it about impossible to contact support. Anyone know of a way to get their attention to get replies?

Power light and amber light on the f12 key are on.  Left it sit that way for 10 minutes, just in case.  Won't respond to ctrl-alt-del or power button.  Had to hold down the power button to turn off.  Won't respond to any function keys held down during boot.

A:Z820 Bricked Bios after Firmware update

Hi: If you run the BIOS file again (on another PC), the intruction page opens and you can try this...I'd burn the DOS based flash files on a CD, since the DVD drive may be looking for a CD to recover from, but according to the instructions below, you can use a USB flash drive (formatted in the FTA 32 files system, not NTFS). Just put the files inside the folder on the CD, not the folder. Fail-safe BootBlock Recovery ModeHP Workstations include 64 KB of write-protected boot block ROM that provides a way to recover from a failed update of the system BIOS ROM, for instance in the event of a power loss.  Fail-safe BootBlock Recovery Mode will detect that the BIOS is unusable and boot the workstation in a recovery mode and search the root folder of any FAT/FAT32 file system on any USB media source (hard drive, flash drive, etc.) for a compatible binary image. The binary (.bin) file in the DOS Flash folder should be copied to the root of the desired storage device, and the system powered on. Once the binary image is located, the BIOS recovery process will be attempted. The automatic recovery will continue until the BIOS is successfully updated or restored.

My sister asked me to update her laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-16N; Part number PSC0ME-01S00SEN) from Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) to Windows 8 (64-bit).
So I did.

Then I went to Toshiba's UK website to check if there were any drivers I needed to install for Windows 8. The only one was a BIOS update (to BIOS v1.70). I have no idea what the previous BIOS version number was.

So I run the update application within Windows 8. Phoenix Technologies WinPhlash starts and then halfway through the update, the whole thing freezes.

The trackpad wouldn't move the cursor or anything. I had no option but to unplug the laptop from the wall and remove the battery. The laptop is not under warranty.

Of course, now it won't turn on. It beeps once when I press the power button, but the system doesn't turn on. A couple of minutes later, it sounds one long beep then two short beeps. It then keeps repeating this "one long beep, two short beeps" sequence every couple of minutes.

I have Googled and read website after blog after forum post, but nothing works. The links to the software suggested on these websites/blogs/forums are usually dead, so I cannot try what they suggest.

The most common solution is the Phoenix Crisis Recovery Tool. I have managed to download v1.0.0.4 which is supposed to enable me to make a bootable USB key.

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 Really frustrated from the lack support of the laptop G580, there is no support for windows 10, no drivers, no BIOS update, I keep trying to found solutions without any luck, recently I bought an Original Lenovo Battery but my laptop does not charging it and keep say unauthorized battery, i tried every solution in the world but none is worked, one solution leave it at the end is to update the Bios, currently i have 62CN40WW and the next version is 62cn97ww_64.exe but lot of peoples having bugs and problems with this new version without any solution, also there is no version for windows 10, so i can't take the rest damage my motherboard as I just changed it.

No logo, not possible to hit F2 or anything. Isvthere any way to fix this?? Or is it totally bricked?Thanks in advance.

Hopefully you made a backup of your BIOS before you updated it, that way you can restore it back. If not, there are ways to fix it (crisis BIOS recovery) or you can contact Acer technical support in your area for options.

Hi everyone. I have a problem with my t430s, after updating the bios using lenovo online tool, my pc won't start anymore.  It powers, after a few seconds the wifi indicator led turn on, and stays like that. No beeps, nothing. Tried removing bios battery, the 10 press plus long press of power button, but no luck. Does anyone know a way to revive it? I don't have warranty on it. Thanks.

A:Lenovo T430s BIOS Update failed

Problem solved. I found some 1333 ram today and insert into my laptop. The old 1066 tams are not supported in this bios appears...

Hello! My wifi stoped working and I updated all drivers and it didn't work. Then for the last thing I've updated the bios from 9acn28ww to 9acn32ww from the site. It went OK, but now that I try to acess the setup I'm prompted by a system password I didn't set earlier, it was empty. It came with Windows 8 installed, but I was using Windows 7 with MBR partition and now I can't configure to Legacy and nothing... Is there any default password like "password" ? Thanks in advance!

Finally gave into the Lenovo nagging and updated the BIOS on my E560 - big mistake. It went through and installed fine, no issues with failures, etc (well none that appeared on the screen). The laptop restarted fine, it went through and updated the BIOS, restarted one final time and ...... nothing. At present I have popped the battery and the power, reset the unit (press pwr button for 15sec etc), removed all peripherals, etc, etc, googled for similar happenings and so no matter what I have done, the laptop is as dead as a brick. I have the small red power light on but that's about it. Nothing appears on the screen (so can't see UEFI/BIOS), no fans start and about the only thing that does work is the DVD drive can be opened. It's a relatively new laptop (less than 12 months old so still under warranty) but as a word of caution to other E560 owners - DO NOT INSTALL THE LATEST BIOS UPDATE. Well no unless you want an expensive paper-weight for your desk.

Just purchased a G50-30 with win 7 x64. Decided to update the BIOS A7CN40WWW_64 from Lenovo website. The notebook version was A7CN23WW. Upon reboot, after successful BIOS update, Win 7 booted with errors of Repair option or Normal boot up. Even re-installation of Win 7 will yield BSOD - ACPI non compliant.  Have changed BIOS settings defaults from UEFI to Legacy, it still does not work. This BIOS version is not stable.Please help / advise ? Can i request for the earlier version of BIOS ? 













Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo G50-30 Bios update crashed installed win 7

I have managed to resolve the Win7 installation issues by the following settings in the BIOS setup (F2) : a) Boot Mode/Priority - set to Legacy over UEFIb)  USB Mode - set to 2.0 and not 3.0 Case resolved.

Hi! I updated my Lenovo T430u's BIOS from version 2.11 to 2.13 this morning and everything is slow since. I mean: sloooow. I had a functionnal dual boot Windows 10/Linux Mint but now Linux Mint takes around 3 minutes to boot. It took 25 seconds before. I figured it was related to the disk so I did the memory and disk diagnostics but everything seems ok. Even booting from USB/DVD is slow. I tried restoring default settings from BIOS, putting the battery in maintenance mode, removing the battery and even disconnecting the CMOS backup battery for an hour. I then tried to downgrade the BIOS but it does not seem like an option. This would probably fix my problem since everything was ok at version 2.11.I am really out of solution here! Please help, my computer is not usable in this state :/ Julien

A:Lenovo T430u BIOS update 2.13 slow

It looks a lot like this problem:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T500-takes-15-minutes-to-boot-after-bios... The only thing is that I don't have an "Intel AMT" option to disable in the BIOS :/ Help!

My Windows 10 N22 does not output audio to my digital TV when connected with an HDMI cable. I have tried it on several TV's with the same result. I get video, but the audio comes from the laptop speakers. The TV is not even available to select as a Playback Device in Sounds, only the speakers show up. I have tried to udate the BIOS, as the latest BIOS is supposed to resolve an HDMI audio issue.  However, when I try to update it, I get a message that reads "ERROR 180 - BIOS part numbers do not match!" My current BIOS version is 0YCN14WW.
