I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X200s that has received a SSD instead of it’s 250GB HDD.
After reinstalling Windows 7 PRO x64, the integrated camera was not detected by Skype or Yahoo Messenger.
After checking BIOS settings and verifing that the camera is enabled i decided to update the BIOS.
The latest BIOS available at the time was 3.22-1.07
I used the Windows utility instead of the Bootable CD method.
After the update was complete, the utility asked for a reboot. After that, i had a blank screen at boot with the bluetooth, N led and power LED on.
I disconnected the battery and AC power, waited 30 de minutes but it had no effect.
I even tried to swap the RAM modules or leaving just one. Leaving the laptop without RAM modules just made it beep.
I left the laptop running for more than 15 minutes and IT BOOTED. I saw the boot logo for a few seconds, then it went dark again. I kept waiting and after another 15 minutes it booted to Windows.
I searched on the web about this problem and found a user that said it’s because of a conflict with AMT older firmware.
I’ve downloaded the AMT firmware package, extracted it and followed the info (go to an admin command prompt, go to the extracted directory and run MEInfoWin.exe.
Fulll instructions on the Lenovo website.
You should get :

That’s it. Reboot and everything should be normal.
