I was trying to help a friend reset the bios password on his Lenovo L460 thinkpad. So first i tried to remove the cmos battery, it didnt work. So i figured i had to reset the bios chip by shorting it out. and so i did.. but now the computer wont turn on.. the power button and the "fn" button lights up, and the fan starts running, but after a few seconds the fan stops. then after a while the power goes off. And the screen is completely black under the whole process. this happens every time i try to start it. Is it possible i damaged the chip and that's the reason it wont turn on now? could it be the entire motheboard? any input at all would be higlhy appreciated.
