Firmware for bricked T430s

#1 Post by cyber288 » Sat Jul 06, 2019 10:17 am


I did a firmware update on a newly purchased T430s and it got bricked (only the power button lights up when it is started). Tried removing both batteries but it did not help. I see online that there exists a recipe to reflash the BIOS using a programmer. I would try to go that route but I cannot find a bin file for the T430s and I don't have access to another working unit to extract it from.

Anyone can provide a bin file for a T430s? I'll buy a motherboard if I can't find one.
