After updating bios no display
Go to Advanced BIOS Features, select the 1st/2nd/3rd boot device as hard disk.Then go to the Hard Disk Boot Priority option, and select the hard drive you want to boot from, and then save and exit out of the bios.If this happens to anyone else when updating BIOS via Win Flash (I don't recommend this utility) using Windows 8 and you get a black screen after restarting, simply hold ESC key during system startup for several seconds and then arrow down once, then press enter and you will boot back into Windows and your display will work again as well as future restarts and BIOS saved changes. Thanks to santi221192 for willing to go through with this procedure, we both learned something new today.There really needs to be a sticky for updating the BIOS...Next when prompted push the S key, and install the Nvidia Raid Class Driver, then push the S key again, and install the Nvidia Nforce Storage Controller Driver, in which the screen will look like this, then push enter to continue.
Due to large amount of what APPEARS to be failed flashes (most people I'm sure RMA'd because of this) there is a simple fix to get it back in working order.If this system is damaged, the machine is essentially a brick.Some research is not showing any reversion process or back-up BIOS on this unit. When you are working with the BIOS you have to be really careful if you're going to upgrade it.Testing with an external display is helpful if the notebook display is black but you can hear sounds; such as fans, spinning drives, or beep tones that indicate the computer is operating.
If you have updated the chipset and graphics drivers and BIOS, but the notebook display still remains black, the LCD might be defective.This emergency recovery feature is separate from the BIOS and is designed to work in the event of a catastrophic BIOS failure.
