    Laptop doesn't boot after BIOS update


    Hi guys, I recently bought a MSI laptop, and decided to update the BIOS.
    However after the update my laptop just doesn't boot anything, no USB, no hard drive, nothing.

    Can anyone help me out?
    I already enabled/disabled secure boot, used UEFI etc. and tried to flash the BIOS again, but nothing worked.

    There usually is a way to reset the BIOS back to the original (first). I'm not sure the procedure for your laptop, but go to the support page for your laptop and search for "reset BIOS" or something like that.

    Sadly I am only able to find that for motherboards and CMOS, but not for BIOS for a laptop...

    To try to force your way into bios, you can remove the cover over the hard drive and just unplug the cable from the hard drive then try to start the computer a couple times.

    I can get in the BIOS, but after the POST I only get the MSI logo.

    Try resetting the drive order in the BIOS to default. It sounds like it is not finding the harddrive. Also post the make model and year of your laptop someone here might have a similar model and be able to help.

    Open up the laptop and see if you can pull the CMOS battery or push the reset if it has one.

    When pressing F11 it can find my USB and hard drive, so it can find the hard drives, because it even gives details about the brand and manufactorer.

    I will try that, however, does that not just change all the BIOS settings to default, not the BIOS version?
