I dabble in computer building and fixing every couple years. This usually means my existing knowledge is obsolete when I get to it each time. Like my most recent endeavor.
I was given an older Lenovo Ideapad 710s i7 which I made into a Dual-boot, Win10/LinuxMint machine. It worked great, especially Mint. (The camera would not run in Win10 after an update. Common according to the inter-webs) When the most recent Win10 update popped up, I told it to go ahead hoping it might fix the camera. I also told it to update some optional drivers, and….what I think may have been a BIOS update. I should have know better. After a flash of something like “Lenovo needs to update” or “Lenovo is updating”, the machine seems to have died. Bricked. Power button does nothing. No lights, etc. Is a bricked BIOS salvageable in in 2021? Thoughts?
