Hi Experts,
the objective is Lenovo E530. I was run Lenovo Systém Update on that machine yesterday. It was done many updates including latest BIOS. (Im running Windows 7 x64 pro)
everything was successful.
I have rebooted machine several times after that - updating some other applications. Everything was just fine.
Today I power on the laptop and there is noting on the screen. Only the CPU fan is working and disk is spinning.
I tried to remove RAM - there was some beeps as expected. Then I try to do BIOS recovery thru CTRL+R - and nothing happen.
Then I found some other manual to do that where the CTRL+B was applied and it is working, but in other way - the notebbok turns on normály while Im holding CTRL+B key together with power button.
Without CTRL+B there is only blank screen...

Sounds as if BIOS Update got corrupted somehow. Any way to roll it back to previous version?

check the bios battery - should be a CR2032 - at 3V
disconnect also disk, cd drive and all peripherals and check if it boots into bios

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

Battery is OK, I has tried to disconnect it to clear CMOS data successfully, but with no effect.
Disconnection peripherials has no effect.
If I connect external keyboard, the break button have the same function as CTRL+B...

You need to open a case with Lenovo support and ask them how to revert the changes you've done with update.

Vanikcz - why the C grade?
i know you don't like this outcome, but a correct answer deserves at least a B grade

Was the solution accepted because of motherboard replacement was suggested or due to the BIOS replacement link?
