Idia - IF i could locate my bios battery on the motherboard (if any) then take it out and set it in again, would my laptop so not start up in factory settings ?

When you turn on the laptop, is there no logo? On most models even if you told it not to boot from the HD it will still give you BIOS access.

by

No logo and no access to bios no matter what i try.

dsqsquad - Did you ever find a solution. I have the exact same model and problem.

So we both experienced the same thing, after playing with bios.. Black screen. Isn't it highly unlikely that all of a sudden the motherboard is just done? I had my it support friend tear mine apart, i7 model too, he said that he found cmos tried to remove for 20 seconds. Still nothing. Could it be something else, can we bios update? Go factory settings by doing something else?

I would definitely try to remove the cmos battery if possible. I know some laptops have them soldered to the motherboard, but I'm not sure about your model you may be able to just pop it out. If not you can also see if your motherboard has a jumper to clear the cmos. The jumper should have three pins and a small cap on two of the three pins. The jumper is usually labeled on the motherboard as CLR, clear or clear cmos. If your motherboard does have a jumper and you are able to locate it, then you can reset by moving the small cap over one pin and leaving it there for about 30 seconds or a minute and then putting it back in its original position.

If these solutions do not work then you may want to try hooking your laptop up to an external monitor to see if it will display anything on the external monitors screen. If you are able to see your PC boot on the external monitor then you may have a problem with your laptop screen.

I have tryed to hook a external monitor to the laptop and cant seem to find that jumper, neighter the cmos battery, i have looked under the cover to extra hd's / ram, i guess i will have to tear that laptop apart, to see if i can locate anything on the motherboard.

I have the same situation. I am thinking about sending mine to a repair shop, to get the bios chip replaced, since I believe thats where the problem is.

Update (09/15/2015)

I have spotted a person, who have solved the problem.

http://www.sweclockers.com/forum/trad/13...

The solution explained shortly. Take out the CMOS-battery and try to turn the computer on. After >100 tries the person on sweclockers succeded. When Windows loaded, he reflashed the BIOS.

This solution can´t work for me, since my windows can´t load. So I can´t flash BIOS since it can only be done from windows, unless you have speciel tools. So I have sent my motherboard to a shop in Germany, to get the bioschip reflashed/changed.

Update (09/30/2015)

I can now confirm, that replacing/reflashing the BIOS-chip works. I have my computer up and running.

Great - then it should be possible to find another on ex. Ebay, btw. Shase are you from Denmark..

If you are from Europe, I would recommend bying the chip from bios-chip. This is purely based on my own searching for a chip, where I found them most professional. I used the "service for replacement", since I do not have an OS, plus that I would not engage in changing the chip my self, after I researched the topic of chip-replacement. Whereever you place your order, then remember there are two bios-versions for this machine 1.xx and 2.xx.

Yes I am from Denmark. Are you from Denmark as well?

Hello! I have a Lifebook E734 and I have the same issue as stated in the title. I found 2 flash chips on the MB with E6 and E7 printed on them. Not sure what the purpose of each one is.
