I performed a BIOS update (believe it was 223) - which went through with no issue. After I bios updated, I rebooted and when back into the BIOS to reset my settings back to the way I had it. I only changed the boot order, and the sound effects for booting.
After I did this, I saved and rebooted. Walked away and came back to a laptop that was just a black screen, nothing visible - power light on, no keyboard light at all.
Powered off, turned on - no bios boot, no screen, keyboard lights up and shuts off.
Any suggestions, or do I need to send it back for repair?
-+Hold down Ctrl+Home then power button. -+HOLD Ctrl+Home until you see EZ-Flash starting. (Holding it could be around 20 SECONDS) -+Wait till the factory reset is finished. at the end it will say restart in two seconds. -+Laptop shutdowns automatic (DO NOT INTTERUPT THIS PROCESS)
TokoDude: I tried the suggested steps, however, nothing happens. It just boots up normal, nothing on the screen and I held it down for a good minute or two. gokica: I have tried smashing f2 to see if I can somehow get into bios, but I was not successful.
Yes, I am using the left CTRL key and the Home key at the top left on the numpad. I've tried the steps numerous times. I also tried getting it to restore from the USB stick, by placing the BIOS file onto the USB stick - but it is not reading the USB stick either.
