Lenovo E330 dead after bios update

Q: Lenovo E330 dead after bios update

Hey guys, So I got two problema actually with my laptop. The first one is that after my bios update of may 10 2016 my laptop wont reboot anymore. No bios screen or anything, only the logo lights up and the fans stop working after few seconds. The reason for my update was because i bought a new Wifi card the wimax 6250 which is actually whitelisted, didnt work at the begin so I thought updating the bios would help. But now I screwed my laptop which im using for my study. Can someone pls help me with suggestions? Also removing the mobo battery didnt help, after its says that it has been reseted it boots again without anything happeninng.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo E330 dead after 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.)

Hello guys, I kind of bricked my Thinkpad E330 after having tried to update the BIOS from Windows (.exe file from the support page). The laptop rebooted, then the BIOS flash seemed to execute correctly and after a final reboot, black screen. I tried to hard reboot but the screen does not give any cursor or text. CMOS battery removal before start offers a one time chance to see the BIOS info page but every action I try to take (Enter to pause screen, ALT+F1 to go to the settings or simply wait) leads to an error message saying that the clock date is incorrect. The laptop then reboot and offers me the black screen. At this point I do not know how to solve the problem as the warranty and support expired for a long time now. I also tried to burn the BIOS with Wincrisis tool without success. Does anyone have a clue about this problem?Thanks

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, trye... Read more

Prompted by the Support Assistant, I updated the BIOS on my Pavilion 11 yesterday. It finished installing, went to restart and then completely died.  I have performed a hard reset, pressed windows and B keys while powering up and then releasing. Pressed windows and B keys while powering up and not releasing. Nothing. The screen is blank. It feels as if the fan is whirring, but no lights are apparent apart from the power button light itself. It seems the next step is to install a previous version of BIOS on a USB drive, but there are no BIOS updates available on the HP product page. I am now at a loss. The battery is not even accessible, so I can't take that out!  Any help gratefully received!

Help...

I attempted a BIOS update using the Asus update on my computer. I have a P4S533 Motherboard. All seemed ok. Now the computer will not boot or do anything other than this; I hear one long beep followed by two short beeps. Then a 3 or 4 second pause and then steady short beeps that never stop.

I read about using AFLASH.exe... the only problem is I have my computer set to boot from the CDROM first and not the floppy A: drive. I cleared CMOS with the jumper, I reboot pressing F2, F8, Delete, anything....nothing seems to work.

Any ideas what happened and what I can do to get the computer working again?

Thanks,

Paul

Always make sure you flashed the right bios any wrong bios would cause the laptop becoming as bricked = dead so only solution to solve this is to send the laptop to Lenovo repair and they will either have tools to be able to reflash the bios for you or they will replace the motherboard with a new one.

We bought our oldest son this: http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-Satel...tBy=bySubmissionDateDescending#R3VT4MY1GTRFQA laptop in December for his birthday. He got it on 12/22 (purchased Cyber Monday from Amazon) and yesterday he told me it was not working. Asking he said it turns on, power light on front and fan comes on but won't boot up past there and nothing displays on the screen. We tried putting in the restore DVD we made when he got it but nothing. It powers on and off with the power button but nothing else. I went to Amazon to check and see about warranty and what my options might be and when I went to the page where I bought the laptop I see there are now about 20 negative reviews by people who recieved a notice from Toshiba to update the BIOS and after the update the laptop is doing what my son's is. Most say that neither Toshiba or Amazon is of any help. So I asked my son if he tried to update the BIOS and he said yes. Now I am wondering if I should try and contact Amazon since I've had the machine under 3 months, Toshiba, or try to repair it on my own or a computer repair place. I am typing this question on a Toshiba laptop purchased 2 years ago that I absolutely love and have never been prompted to update the BIOS. Confused and looking for advice.

TIA

Have an Inspiron 3252. Was notified of a BIOS update by the Dell update app way back on May 12. A couple of seconds after clicking "install now", the computer froze up. No response from mouse or keyboard. After waiting 20 minutes (hoping it would 'recover') I had to pull the plug and reboot. Now the computer does nothing, power light comes on but nothing else. BIOS is never started so all inputs devices are dead.
Same thing happened to a lot of Inspiron 3052's. After a week and hundreds of posts, Dell has claimed responsibility and agreed to replace the motherboards of the 3052's, even if they were past warranty ( but no more than 6 months past).
Not so with my case, I guess because they only got the one reported failure. Several calls to tech support were a waste of time. I would have to pay for a replacement motherboard, even though it was an update from Dell that destroyed my system.
Anyone have an ideas how to fix a corrupted bios? *** says I need to exhaust all normal remedies before initiating any legal action so I have one more phone call to make to tech support ( will be the fourth) and this last post ( other posts I have made about this have become locked to me, WTG Dell!).
Also, where would the .log files that record errors be located? Is there a .log file for keystones?

A:Inspiron 3252 dead from BIOS update a month ago

Sorry you had this problem, but there's always a chance a BIOS update will fail, regardless of whether some update software offers it to you or you manually select it from the Support page for your system. That's why it's generally not recommended to update BIOS unless the new version fixes a problem that your system is actually having.
The difference with your case is there may have only been one (yours) or a few  reports of a BIOS update failure on the 3252 with the latest version.
Did you try resetting BIOS by removing the motherboard battery and pressing holding the power button for ~30 sec - with the PC unplugged from the wall?
You can get a new 3252 motherboard here for ~$85:
www.ebay.com/.../222395951201
There are other offerings for this motherboard at various sites on the net too. And Dell offers Out-of-Warranty repair services for a fee, if you don't want to DIY:
www.dell.com/.../fix-your-pc-or-tablet
NOTE:  If you say things about certain actions you may want to take, your new threads are likely to be locked too. It's a violation of the forum's Terms Of Use -which you accepted when you joined this community- to mention those kinds of activities in posts.  (I didn't make the rules and I don't work for Dell.)

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!

When I look up your system on the support page I see quite a few updates, drivers and such that support windows 8.1 and 10.  If you are looking for a BIOS update or patch, those are usually OS neutral and are applied with either a BIOS utility or patcher that works in DOS mode and some can use a windows based utility.
 
Are you trying to use a BIOS update to fix an issue or just get the "latest and greatest" for your computer?  Mostly I would not recommend updating your BIOS unless it is absolutely neccessary to fix a troublesome issue or problem with hardware.

I found this procedure on a lenovo forum. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. If not, it is not worth putting money into fixing this laptop.. New ones are pretty cheap and having a new mb installed in this one will cost more than a new laptop.

BTW the spelling errors are from the forum NOT mine.

First of all I want to say that I am extremely disappointed with the experience I had with my Lenovo. After I bought it I found out that Lenovo, for some reason, disabled the Turbo Boost option of the CPU. I tried to fix it by entering the BIOS but the options there were limited, so I decided to update the BIOS. I downloaded the BIOS update for 64-bit windows(i am running windows 8 which is compatible with the said update utillity). I ran the .exe and followed all the instructions (did not shut-down restart or anything my computer). After installing it automatically restarted and a Lenovo logo prompted on the screen followed by ">>Start PXE over IPv6, Press [ESC] to EXIT..." after that "EFI Network 0 for IPv6(numbers and letters) boot failed". Then ">>Start PXE over IPv4" which failed and a blue box poped saying "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery Media and Hit any ket then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". Pressed ok and got me to Boot Manager screen. Boot option Menu had only EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and EFI Network 0 for IPv4". What should I do?Note that I tried to start up both with and without the ethernet cable in.

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.

HelloI have some issues with my Y50-70 laptop. For some time I have strange FPS drops while playing games. All runs smoothly but suddenly fps drop to 5-10 for a few seconds, then all goes back to normal. I read that it's a matter of old BIOS version. I tried to update BIOS (2.00 -> 3.03) but id doesn't work. InsydeFlash starts, then I get a prompt about not turning off PC, I click 'ok', then IF flashes some messages about 'erasing and writing new files' and then system reboots as always (without any updates, installs or anything alike). I tried to install BIOS using USB stick, but for that I need iso file. The thing is that on Lenovo support site all iso are literally empty. Just hollow file with nothing inside (yet somehow it weights about 20mb). I cannot find any solution on the internet, as if this problem occured only on my laptop.I'm using Windows 10 64bit and Ubuntu 17.10 (dual-system, combined using grub 2).

Hi, I recently bought the Lenovo g50 (80e501g3us) laptop that came loaded with Windows 8.1. I decided to downgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) because the laptop came loaded with spyware such as Superfish and I prefer Windows 7. I first created a system image of the computer for safety and then i rebooted with the Windows 7 CD. I had to delete all of the partitions in order to install Windows 7. The installation was a success and I started updating all of the drivers for my model based on the Windows 7 64 bit OS that I got from Lenovo's website. All drivers except 2 worked which said it required an update. I then flashed my BIOS with the version that I downloaded from Lenovo's website thinking that this might solve my problems. After the BIOS was flashed I received an error that this was the wrong BIOS.Now I get the following errors: Default boot device missing or boot failedInsert recovery media and hit any keyThen select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media This then present me to the boot option menu with the following option only listed:efi pxe network I have inserted the DVD that I used to install Windows 7, however, it is not being recognized or loading since the only option is efi pxe network. I get the following error: EFI Network 0 for IPv4 (MAC Addresss inside here) boot failedWhen I click OK it then says checking media before presenting me to the same screen My original BIOS version is B0CN40WWThe ...

A:Lenovo G50-80 BIOS Update Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Reset the BIOS to default before you do anything else. 
 

Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
Remove main battery
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
Replace main battery
Replace AC adapter (plug into wall then notebook)

This should reset the BIOS to factory defaults, but you should enter the BIOS to make sure your boot order has been changed to indicate your choice of booting (DVD, HDD).  I would also turn off network boot (disable) as you should not need that option for Windows 7, 8 or 10 to work correctly.
 
Good luck.

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.
