Recently upgraded to the current bios for my laptop on Lenovo's site. Did something stupid changing settings in the uefi shell and now can't get laptop to boot even to bios. Looking to pay someone to do this today. Would like as much unlocked in the bios as possible. Also need a recovery bios and guide to use it for this model as my current attempts haven't worked.
Alienware m18 --bios (InsydeH20) is locked. How do I unlock it? My battery malfunctioned so I disconnected it, now the computer can't seem to access the boot hdd. I tried reconnecting the battery but to no avail. Diagnostics show everything seems to be working fine, I'm am pretty sure I can get everything working once I can unlock the bios (and change boot sequence and settings ) The only two areas in the bios that is unlocked is the password reset portion (there was no password) and the "unlock" Bios portion, but when I try to unlock it it keeps saying "Unlock failed." So... the computer "sees" my hard drives but can't seem to access it, and without being able to access the Bios I can't even begin to do anything. How do I unlock (ungrey) the Bios? Things I've tried: -remove and reinsert cmos battery and laptop battery -try flashing bios-- I couldn't get this to work, maybe because the key sequences I tried (fn+esc) doesn't work.
