Theguywhobea Posted December 1, 2022 Share Posted December 1, 2022 So I recently purchased a Y545 real cheap because it was supposed to be broken. Well turns out it is. I have spent hours and hours doing everything I can think of, but still can't really figure it out. At first it was running an old BIOS version, so after thinking I was having driver problems forever I realized it was probably some BIOS corruption or something and that was causing the near constant BSOD loops. Well I finally managed to stay in windows long enough to flash the most up to date BIOS, and it rebooted and said everything was good. BIOS menu looks fine now and reports the correct version. However it still won't boot into any OS. Linux kernel panics, and Windows BSOD's. I can however get it to boot into windows for a little bit if I pull the CMOS battery out. That always assures the next boot will work. If I have the laptop unplugged it will run for quite a while before bluescreening, if I plug it in it will bluescreen pretty quick. Is this still some kind of BIOS corruption? Is this even a fixable issue? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
