Lenovo Y50-70 BIOS Emergency​ Flash Mode not working, BIOS stuck.

Q: Lenovo Y50-70 BIOS Emergency​ Flash Mode not working, BIOS stuck.

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).

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

Hello All, I have this lenovo laptop with Ubuntu and Windows 7 installed in it. Now I wanted to format my system with only Windows 7 (using bootable USB) but strangely when I plugin the pendrive and start the system with the small button next to the charging point (my bad for not knowing the button name) it shows the bios menu but the direction keys in keyboard do not work. I tried to do so using an external USB keyboard but it still do not work. However the keyboard works fine once I select Ubuntu and log into the system. Thanks in advance for any help.

A:ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,

Hi, I have an Aspire 4752G running Windows 10. After doing updates, my laptop rebooted and I noticed it was taking a long time just stuck on "getting windows ready", so I just left it running. When I returned, it was stuck on the initial acer boot screen (the one with the Acer logo when you first turn on your PC), with the progress bar at the bottom filled to 75%. No matter what I cannot get passed this screen. Pressing F2 for bios or F12 for multiboot does nothing. I can adjust the brightness using Fn controls but thats about it. Here is what I've tried so far with no luck: 1) Removed battery and used only AC power.2) Removed AC and used only battery power.3) Removed each stick of RAM separately.4) Removed keyboard, HDD and DVD drive.5) Removed CMOS battery and turned on laptop to clear BIOS. BIOS was cleared (multiboot option disappeared) but still stuck on same screen. As far as I could work out, the last option for me to try was re-flashing the BIOS. I downloaded the latest BIOS zip file for my model from Acer's support site. After extraction, inside the DOS folder it contains a few files including a .ROM and .WPH file. I tried formatting a 2GB USB to both FAT and FAT32 and on different occasions copied all the files inside the DOS folder as well as only the .ROM and .WPH files to the root of the USB. I plugged the USB into the left side of the laptop with the battery and AC power removed. While holding down Fn+Esc I connected AC power a... Read more

Hi, sorry for my bad English, but I use the translator.I hope you can clear up some things for me, since this pc has been through a lot in the last 2 years, but it still works in part.During the summer of 2017 (or just before) I accidentally deleted the recovery partition from the hard disk, then downloaded with Microsoft Media creation Tool (Windows 10 Home). Once installed I also downloaded the drivers from the Lenovo site, everything worked except the Ethernet port (but it wasn't important). The fact is that the BIOS version is 9acn32ww, and it has always given me some problems. Now I reset the PC again via Media Creation Tool, but I see that the most updated version is the 9acn30ww (the one I had previously), what happened to the 32 on the site? Has it been removed because it also had problems for other users? Is it possible to bring the version back? Currently I tried to enable the flash back, but the operation is interrupted after the restart with an error.In addition to the Ethernet port, can't install Intel Management Engine Interface and other drivers, the error message refers to minimum unsupported requirements, and I frequently detect lag / freeze in the normal use of the PC, but specifically in games (fortnite), even if it often runs smoothly and without problems, and from the task manager the memories / cpu / gpu are not fully loaded .

All,
I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M57 6072-AUF running Windows 7 64 bit. I got it for a song at a computer recycle center? It was originally a govt of Quebec system and the BIOS is in French. I want to flash the BIOS to update it and to also convert it to English. I went to the Lenovo site and burned the correct BIOS .iso to a disk. 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

I have a Inspiron 17-3737 Laptop that has no OS or HDD on it.  It is not starting properly, and will only start every so often.  I thought I may be able to fix it with a BIOS Update.  I created a MS-DOS Bootable USB Using Rufus.  Copied the latest BIOS to it "Inspiron_3737_A09.exe" from the link below.  I Booted it from the pc in question, and after typing in Inspiron_3737_A09.exe after Diag C:\> prompt, got this message:  "Bad command or file name"
I tried this over and over, even with different variations of the text, to no avail.  Am I doing something wrong, or is there some trick to do this?  Do I have to use the Dell Tools to do it?  It seems to me Rufus should work just the same, so there must be something else I'm missing that you Dell guys would know about.
I've also seen others with this Not Booting issue and some that are similar, so it must be a problem with this laptop.

Hi,
My pcie slot was no longer recognizing my video card and after alot of troubleshooting I discovered my BIOS was jacked up. I have no idea how that happened, but that's beside the point.
So I just ordered a new BIOS flash for my Phoenix Award BIOS from BIOS Agent Plus. I burned the I.S.O. it provided to CD and rebooted my p.c. from the CD drive. The instructions provided with the upgrade said that the flash should start automatically. It didn't.
Instead it went to a list of command prompts numbered 1-6 with the first option being "begin flash now", the others were begin flash in case of different errors and the last were help and exit. So i held my breath and hit 1 enter. It instantly said the flash was complete and then went to a DOS line prompt for drive a. I Ctrl Alt Deleted out of it back to Cmos and booted from my hard drive. Windows started normally and the flash definitely didn't work. I tried a couple more times, same thing.
There is nothing listed (surprisingly) in the FAQ's for this type of situation and I don't see it on the web anywhere so far, but I'm still researching. I really don't want to buy a floppy drive just for this. I'm going to call tech support tomorrow, but in the meantime, any suggestions?

I want to a clean install and add an SSD drive to my 1810TZ. However, I cannot install onto the SSD as its not being picked up by the computer.

I'm guessing that this is because of the age of the computer and that maybe the bios needs flashing? Any ideas if this is right?

Also, I don't know how to flash the bios I can see it on this page?

But I cannot get it to work and I also cannot download the insturction even tho I have PDF. I'm just not very good with computer.

Also, 09/24/2010 is the last bios update this still seems old, should such an old bios still sort out the ssd problem?

Sorry for all the question. But as I'm sure you can guess I'm not very good with computers.

Thank You

A:SSD not working with 1810TZ (flash bios?)

Best advise I could give you would be to return the ssd drive. That old of a netbook is just not going to work correctly with a ssd.

Next you post
I'm just not very good with computer.Click to expand...

Unless you fully understand the flashing procedure, DO NOT attempt a bios flash. While flashing a bios is not difficult, an incorrect or corrupted flash can render your netbook unbootable ie junk.

If you really really have to have the ssd drive, take it to a shop and have them install it for you. Do note that if they have to flash the bios ALL bios flashing is done at customers risk. IE if it messes up it is your problem not theirs.

Im working on a Toshiba Laptop A105-4284, Model #: PSAA8U-0FH02K that froze while trying to flash the BIOS, so I didnt know what else to do but shut it off. Now, when I try to boot it up, it gets stuck in the same place it did during the flashing; on the Toshiba splash screen with the status bar at the bottom showing about 20% complete. I cant get into the BIOS and cant boot into Windows. Other options available on this screen are Press F2 for System Settings and F12 for Boot Menu. Pressing F2 results in a beep and the status bar changing to "Please Wait..." but nothing else happens no matter how long I wait. Pressing F12 doesnt do anything. Pressing ESC takes me to a screen that shows the typical system info -- Phoenix Technologies Version 6.00; Intel Calistoga CRB.T3A Reference BIOS; VERSION.MAK 1.53; (looks like its running POST and recognizes CPU, Cores, No TPM or TPM has a problem, and system RAM and stops there.

Hey @cgruchy11,  Thank you for joining in the HP Support Forums and asking for help with the BIOS Update on your HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab137ca that you are stuck on.  Did you manage to get the BIOS Update to finish?  Is it the BIOS Startup menu that you are trying to have not come up when you start the Notebook? The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is responsible for setting up devices used by your system so that those devices can send and receive data. The BIOS does a checklist on your hardware to make sure everything is functioning properly to be able to continue to the Operating System.  Updating the BIOS, also known as "flashing the BIOS," replaces the BIOS firmware. When completed successfully, a BIOS update can fix or enhance aspects of a notebook's performance, or provide support for newly installed hardware. However, if an incorrect update is installed or if the update process is interrupted, the motherboard can be permanently damaged, leaving the computer unable to boot. It is recommended to update your BIOS only if one or more of the following conditions apply:The update fixes a problem with your computer.The update enhances your computer's performance in a desired way.You are planning to change the operating system, processor, or other feature(s), and the current BIOS version will not support the new configuration.An HP Support Agent, or an HP support document, recommends that ...

I recently decided to format my hard drives and reload windows xp pro. in preparation for this i was getting the files i wanted to save together and was about to back them up. before i could back them up my friend decided to flash my bios. after the flash my pc doesn't boot up. it can't find the SATA RAID drives i have in it.

I moved around the bios a little bit to see what the settings are and changed a few to see if i could get it working but no joy. i was able to get the sata hard drives to show up but it still doesn't boot to them.

Phoenix - AwardBIOS CMOS Setup Utility is what i am using. i am hoping that i just need some settings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:SATA RAID not working after bios flash!!!

With friends like that you don't need enemies , is it a custom built PC or an OEM like Dell or HP??

Normally settings are preserved during a bios flash, but check to be sure Raid is enabled in the bios.

Raid 0 or 1?

Hello,I've been trying to reach you guys on twitter, facebook and no one replied. My laptop suddenly shut off yesterday after the sound system started not to work, later on, I tried turning the computer on with results of the display was not showing anything as the on button and keyboard light button indicates that it is on, so, I went online to check on all sorts of reboots and try them on, I stumbled across the BIOS reboot and it worked, but, now all it does is that it kept on repeating the same thing at the first stage of rebooting whenever I turn on my computer. I thought that I should leave it for couple hours if it'd work, but all it does was looping the process again and again.Can anyone please just fix this problem? ASAP? This is my only computer for uni and it's starting soon.Thanks,Jessica.

My screen is frozen on 'Information' when in BIOS. The arrow keys are not responding when in BIOS due to this freeze. Function key and F1 F2 etc not responding. I need to access something in BIOSwas attempting to look at something with BIOS. I switched it off and on, same issue persisting. It was my first attempt at accessing the BIOS. Windows 8.1 is working normally though, just the BIOS frozen. I had to switch off the laptop and power up again to access windows.  Thank you in advance. B50 lenovoBIOS version 9dcn79ww(v2.00)

As you can see there are multiple problems that have come up in this notebook. I recently reinstalled windows 10 to solve some other problems. The installation went perfect and afterward everything seemed to work fine. When my wife turned it on the blue BIOS screen came on (as it did before the installation) and I was unable to use the touchpad, mouse or arrow keys to move the selection. I rebooted and it started up fine only the keyboard did not work. I had to use the onscreen keyboard to log in. Once inside, sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes it doesn't. I've tried using the f6 to toggle the touchpad on but it didn't work. The keyboard is touch and go and now the blue screen BIOS sometimes comes up when the computer is started. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've searched for solutions and haven't been able to find anything that works to solve these problems. I've uninstalled the drivers and rebooted for a fresh re-install of the drivers but that only temporarily fixes the problem. Thank you.

Relying on the information on the Lenovo website listing "Ubuntu" and "Redhat certified" under "Operating Systems", I chose a Lenovo P52. The device arrived, and I opened BIOS settings to prepare for the Linux installation I had planned. After changing some settings, I chose "change settings and reboot", and the device entered a nonresponsive state: Screen black with the exception of a single white pixel in the left upper edge of the screen. After about 30 minutes, I tried a re-boot; again, the screen stayed black. No Lenovo logo appeared, clicking F1 (or any other function key) did not lead into the BIOS settings. Customer support told me this was a technical defect, and I sent the device back to the dealer. A week later, the new Lenovo P52 arrived.  This time, trying to set up the BIOS for Linux installation, I always changed but a single setting and chose the "Save and Reboot" option. Things went fine until I chose to "Enable" the "BIOS support for Thunderbolt", a setting suggested by the BIOS help appearing on the right quarter of the BIOS setttings screen for installation of Windows 10 before a certain patch level and for installation of Linux. An Info Box popped op, saying the resetting with take "up to 15 seconds" with this option enabled.  The "Save and Reboot" led to a bricked device, again: Black screen, nothing happened for 45 minutes. A reboot again failed to have the Lenovo logo appear, no reaction on keys F1 to F12, no way to enter BIOS setup, let... Read more
