Lenovo ideapad z560 0914, the Nvidia GeForce 310 edition
8 GB RAM
1 TB HDD
Windows 7 x64 with current updates installed
Kali rolling, latest updates.
Sparky game over, latest as of last night
I did use grub customizer to theme things out before, and it worked perfectly.
Somehow Deepin managed to beat up my BIOS
Installed Deepin. Played through the options. Tried Deepin's custom theme on grub. Tried to restart. Now my computer won't even go to POST. I get the power lights, the keyboard LEDs, the fan spins up, the optical briefly lights. But I get no Lenovo logo that always comes up. After all the above happens, all the lights go off, as if reset, and it repeats the whole process.
I have tried using the novo button, which gives same results.
Power draining, which is no battery, no wall wart, holding power button at many different intervals.
I've let it try for over an hour, just to be optimistic.
I've removed all the hardware that can be, RAM, HDD, optical, and the different parts like keyboard, touchpad, light board, graphics cable, and plugging things in one at a time.
This looks exactly as it did when my prior motherboard fried after a bad BIOS update.
There has not been a BIOS update ran here.
Unfortunately, Lenovo does not have this model, the 0914, BIOS downloadable as an update or anything else. I've looked all over for the exact version 2.19, insydeh2o, and I've not found the correct flash for it when the other motherboard for zonked.
Any help at all would be massively appreciated, please.
