Lenovo laptop turns on with no picture repair

Very rarely, a laptop turning on with no picture would be anything different than a screen or graphic related problem, especially if there is no liquid history or any other damage to the laptop.

And it seems like neither of these happened, and now this Lenovo Laptop turns on with no picture. Repair would require taking it apart and investigate deeper. This seemed a lot like corrupted bios. It was turning on, with no picture, no response from the capslock key. Usually, we would get a blinking capslock light with DELL laptops, but this one kept quiet.

We took it apart and located where the bios chip is soldered to the motherboard. We had to unsolder it and place it to our little programmer.

Although there are procedures to load a bios file to a flash drive and start the laptop with a connected flash drive, at the initial sequence, when the laptop starts up, it looks for a file in there and reflashes the bios if it exists.

This little programmer can flash the bios pretty quick. We located bios file and reprogrammed it back to the chip.

Repaired, not Replaced!

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Laptop Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Laptops having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Laptops we repair. Check some of our Laptop Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty Laptop is great. That’s an extra half Laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Laptop from polluting our one and only Planet.
