comment i7-5820k Overheats in BIOS
I would never use a "passive" heatsink on a modern i series processor. Get one with a fan and be sure you mount it properly with a high quality heat sink compound.

comment What mechanism writes the dump files when a bluescreen occurs?
Turn your page file Off, reboot, turn it back On and reboot again, will it generate a dump file now? You might also consider running a few chkdsk's on the drive.

comment Z585 turned off while updating BIOS and now showing only black screen
Most manufacturers have a bios rescue (crisis) boot disc or method to salvage a bricked bios, most do not share it publicly, do some google-ing on how to restore a bricked bios on your specific model. Lenovo should be able to salvage the mobo but requires you send it to them.

Drain the battery completely, I usually do this by booting into the bios and let it run until it shuts down, then charge the battery completely.
