Bios update post issue Ideapad Y510P

Q: Bios update post issue Ideapad Y510P

Hello,

I've recently installed Windows 10 on Ideapad Y510 and everything went well drivers and all, but I also did an bios update which I think bricked the laptop.
There was nothing but black on the screen, no bios beep or fan spinning.

After this I attempted a BIOS flash(Pulled the batter, plugged in the USB did the FN + R combo and after 30 seconds of BIOS beeps I get the attached screen).

Has anyone ever seen this before?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My son attempted to upgrade it from Win8 to 10 about a year ago. Something went wrong I guess and he threw it in a drawer and left it. Now we are trying to get it going. If you turn it on, it starts up, fan comes on, keyboards lights up, etc. Screen illuminates but just stays black. No splash screen, nothing.  I have tried an external monitor and nothing there either. Just "no input". I can toggle Fn and F2 and the screen will turn off and on.  I search around and found someone saying that pulling the battery and AC, hold power button for 30 seconds, and reinstall power and fire it up and it may work. It didn't. Nothing....same thing. Button on the side will restart it but comes up the same.  Any ideas to get it to boot? At least into the bios so that I can get Windows reinstalled?

Hello! My Lenovo Ideapad Y510P keyboard has stopped working properly. To be more precise - the "q" and "w" buttons don't work. Every other button is fine. There was no damage, no high wear, nothing physically wrong when removing the buttons. It started suddenly and without a prompt (just in the middle of a game). Erratically the two still start working and with a minuscule lag at first. Once i have typed a few times with the lag disappears only for them to stop working again at some point. As i tried to convey at the start - i don't believe that it is a hardware issue. Any suggestions?

I update the BIOS of my ideapad 720S13IKB to V.6MCN21WW version via Lenovo Vantage today. Then the laptop (maybe the fan) beacomes noisy after booting and when running small apps such as Lenovo Vantage. It used to be very quiet all the time before this BIOS update. What's more, the CPU speed often boosts up to higher than 3.3 GHz, which is crazy as the base speed is only 1.8 GHz, as shown in the attached picture. This is also comes with this BIOS update. I am afraid there is something wrong with the BIOS or my laptop. How can I fix this issue or go back to the earlier BIOS version? Thank you.

Hello, all together, I own a Y510p which has no Windows installed (Ubuntu 14.04 only). Due to some problems with the newest bcmwl modules, I wanted to update my bios (currently: v. 3.05). My question is: Is there a recommended / tested way to update the bios without installing a Windows? E.g.: is there a bootable iso-image that I didn't find? Or, is it possible to use FreeDOS for this task? I'd be happy if someone could give me as precise information as possible on this issue. Thx in advance.

Hello all, this is my first time posting here so please forgive any mistakes/oversights. I've just updated my Samsung laptop's system BIOS via their software update program, and my Nvidia GPU (GT 650m DDR3) no longer seems to work. The Nvidia control panel is still there, and it still gives me the option to select which programs use the GPU, but there is no GPU actitivity showing up. Also,I've tried playing Skyrim (which auto-detects the PC's graphics cards) , and the game no longer seems to detect the Nvidia GPU (just the Intel integrated graphics).

My laptop model is NP550PC7, with 6 gig of ram, and an i7 quad core CPU, and the OS is Window 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I've tried looking in the BIOS but I can't seem to find anything related to the GPU or display options. Any help or avice is much appreciated.

Please navigate to:

Is the Nvidia GPU listed there? If so are there any yellow symbols etc?

Dear Members,I am in trouble with my  Idea Pad Z570: I bought it couple of years ago running Windows 7. During the years of usage I had no trouble at all. With Windows 10 beeing released, I upgraded and it starts to make a lot of troubles: Bluescreen directly after boot or sign in, no WiFi, ... all the known stuff. So I decided last week to downgrade to Windows 7. But now, I am even in a bigger trouble:I tried to boot the Windows 7 from DVD and it crashed into Bluescreen saying: Windows Error 0xc0000225Restarting is not helping. So, i tried to go into BIOS to boot from another device,but I do not even get to BIOS or UEFI. So, thats a kind of Deadlock: I cannot boot from Harddisk because Windows Error 0xc0000225 appears and I cannot get into BIOS & UEFI because the Windows error 0xc0000225 comes before getting to BIOS. Hope this description of my current situation is understandable and you guys have a lot of ideas how to fix it. Thanks!TheGooner

Hello,

I have an ASUS M3A78-EM motherboard. It's been great, and I've had no problems for a about 1 1/2 years. I've gone though several updates on the BIOS for new RAM or CPU compatibility reasons.

I was on 1602 BIOS version and I was trying to update to 1805 today. I did it the same as I normally do through the ASUS Live update utility. I download the BIOS update, and did the "update from file". It went throught the first two parts with no problem. When it hit the 3rd, it failed. I was still in Vista at this point, and then restarted the computer (like I would do after a BIOS update).

After Vista restarted, the computer does nothing. There is no post, no beeps, no logos, just a blank screen like the screen isn't even hooked up. I figured something like this would happen because of the previous error.

I reset the CMOS by taking out the MB battery and moving the jumpers like it says in the manual. I turned the PC back on, to nothing again. It just turns on, but nothing happens at all. I can't even hold the power button to turn the computer off, I have to unplug it from the back.

I thought ASUS had some "crash free" BIOS thing for their motherboards for failed BIOS updates. (At least that's what one of this motherboard's features are). So I downloaded the BIOS again on a USB stick, changed the name like they say I have to (M3A78EM.ROM) and of course the PC will not read from the USB stick.

So now I'm stuck. Pl... Read more

A:ASUS M3A78-EM BIOS update then no post

Well, that's what you're asking for when you do BIOS updates just because you can. There is always a chance of failure, and usually nothing can be done afterwards. Asus crash free BIOS is very reputable of being just as useful as a vacuum cleaner for actually recovering a BIOS after a failed flash. Marketing trick basically. It probably works in one of ~25 cases.
