It's totally dead after firmware update

by busby » September 2nd, 2018, 11:50 pm

For the second time I have a dead Linx 1020 tablet.

I bought this just over 12 months ago and within 24 hours it was dead and unresponsive after updating Windows.

I contacted support and eventually received a replacement.

The tablet then worked until now when during a Windows update I received a message telling me the bios needed updating [again].

I downloaded the bois updated tool as I was instructed and followed the steps to complete the update after first turning off the encryption.

When the process was complete I rebooted the tablet and since then it has been totally dead, no power light and even holding the power button down for a minute made no difference.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do now please.

Hi,

I Know exactly what your going through, last year I bricked three 1020 tablets trying to update windows and the bios. unfortunately I suspect your latest machine is bricked , if you have access to another computer you will see older posts of the ups and downs of trying to update. the reason my updates failed was because I left the memory card in and when I received a new machine and updated it without cards or flash drives connected it worked, I was lucky it was still in warranty and was replaced quickly, this might not be the answer for you but id thought id share my journey of trying to update my machines.

regards,
Daz,
