I use lightdm as the window manager. The upgrade required the service to be restarted. After the restart the display went black. I moved the HDMI to the other port, I tried another monitor, nothing.

What I have found is that the keyboard still works.

Hello graybeard,



I understand that the unit is no longer posting. I apologize for any inconvenience.



Regarding this, what I would like you to do is to try a BIOS recovery. Please refer to the link below and download the ".bio" file:



Once the file is downloaded, please follow the steps below:


BIOS Recovery by the Power Button Menu

  1. Download the Recovery BIOS (.BIO) file. Example:


  2. Copy the recovery file (*.BIO) to a USB device.

  3. Plug the device into a USB port of the target computer when it's turned Off.

  4. Press and hold the power button down for 3 seconds, then release it.

  5. The Power Button menu appears.


  6. Press F4 to start the BIOS recovery.

  7. Wait 2–5 minutes for the update to complete.


  8. The computer turns off when the recovery process is complete, or it prompts you to turn it off.



    After these steps are done, check if the unit still randomly reboots or if it properly posts, please let us know the outcome.

Sorry for the long absence. I was away on business.

Your solution works perfectly the first time I tried. The system is now back and operating.

Thank you for the support.
