Lenovo Y50-70 BIOS Problems

Q: Lenovo Y50-70 BIOS Problems

I am having problems with saving BIOS settings on my Lenovo Y50-70 touch. I am trying to use virtual box so I need the intel virtualization setting turned on. One day my computer crashed and the BIOS reset itself to default settings and since then I can't change any settings. Now my computer frequently freezes up and it will no longer keep accurate time. I believe there is a problem with the CMOS battery but Lenovo support thinks otherwise. Support claims that there is a software problem with Windows. Does any one have any experience with this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi. I have a Lenovo B50-30 mode 80ES. It was set to require a password on startup starting with a capital "A". While experiencing charging problems, amongst other things, I updated the BIOS to 9CCN35WW, downloaded from the Lenovo support site. Since updating, the laptop no longer asks for a password on startup (No big deal, I applied a windows password), however, when pressing F2 to access the BIOS (which I need to do, the F keys are the wrong way round), it asks for a password, When pressing to strike a capital A, the laptop beeps and doesnt enter it. It wont accept capital letters anymore, therefore it wont accept the pre BIOS update password. I have referred the laptop to Lenovo service, including returning the laptop, and they have been nothing short of useless. They said they couldnt repair it under warranty because of "Marks, cracks, inappropriate treatment" and it would cost 255 for a replacement system board. I really couldnt see why I should pay for an issue created by their support system, so I asked them to return it unrepaired. Upon arrival, the laptop was immaculate, so I dont know what damage they were referring to. Is it possible to downgrade the BIOS to a pre update revision, to change the password and then reset it to one the new BIOS approves of? Thankyou in advance.

Good afternoon, I am quite disappointed because I see many problems with BIOS or BOOT problems for Lenovo Z580.I still can't find solution for my problem. The point is I can't go to the BIOS with lenovo recovery button. I had to pull out battery of bios and then I could go there. When I changed some options and saved the settings, the bios had still same options like before. I can't swtich the boot priorities. However I inserted boot flash with WIN10 to install that, but I can't because of the boot priorities. I am stucked. Also I tried all key shortcuts, It does nothing. I really don't want to  take out the HDD and re-install the windows in different PC via sata.  Can you tell me how should I boot the flash or CD with windows when I can't set up the boot priotiry? All I can see is blackscreen.  The point with lenovo recovery button is also weird. When i start laptop via this button I see the menu with options but after I choose one of them for example ''recovery" or "bios " It does nothing.  Thanks, David Byrtus

Hi, after updating the bios to version 9FCN27WW I'm experiencing Windows 10 startup problems (booting the system crashes on the home screen), with other Linux operating systems not happening. I have the BIOS set to Boot Mode, from "UEFI" to "Legacy", changing the next Boot priority item from UEFI to Legacy First and saving the setting, restarting crashes again, but if it enters the bios and resets to Boot Mode, from "Legacy" to "UEFI" and saving the settings again, the operating system will re-operate. Salve dopo l'aggiornamento del bios alla versione 9FCN27WW sto riscontrando problemi di avvio di Windows 10 (l'avvio del sistema si blocca nella schermata iniziale), con altri sistemi operativi Linux non succede. Ho il BIOS impostato su Boot Mode, da "UEFI" a "Legacy", cambiando la voce successiva Boot priority da UEFI a Legacy First e salvando l'impostazione,  al riavvio si blocca di nuovo ma, se rientrando nel bios e reimpostando su Boot Mode, da "Legacy" a "UEFI" e salvando di nuovo le impostazioni, il sistema operativo funziona nuovamente.

Problem:After updating to the latest BIOS firmware (1.26), I found that my T460s would hang at the red Lenovo splash screen when starting up whilst placed in my ThinkPad Pro 90W Dock (the dock was on the latest firmware (2.33)).  The spinning circle of dots would never appear.If I took the laptop off the dock and started it, there was no problem.If I removed the single USB cable from the back of the dock (which fed the USB ports on my Dell monitor), there was no problem.If the laptop was just asleep (rather than completely off), and I woke it up on the dock, there was no problem.The problem only arose when the laptop was on the dock, with the USB cable plugged in, being started from a complete shutdown. Notes:I have had this laptop going on a year now using the exact setup with no issueI also have a T440 work laptop that I use on the exact same setup and it has no issues (BIOS version 2.41)Just in case, I completely wiped my hard drive and installed a fresh version of Windows 10 (on the T460s).  The problem persisted.Steps taken to dianose the issue:I rolled back the BIOS, first to v1.22 (which I believe is the earliest version I could role back to).This was challenging.  For those interested, I had to extract the BIOS image from the Lenovo ISO using ISOBuster, then create a bootable USB to flash the image using Rufus USB tool.  Lenovo didn't make it easy!All the above problems disappeared.I then tried both v1.24 and 1.25 - both of these had the same ...

The BIOS update went smoothly. But with the new BIOS version, no operating system is loaded. The Windows installation hangs in the "Starting windows" stage. Different Linux distributions are also not possible to install and also to boot into Live CD mode. The BIOS switched various modes, AHCI \ Compatible, Legasy \ UEFI. I tried different options.How can I now restore the old BIOS version?

A:ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,

Hi Over the last few weeks i have been attempting unsuccessfully to fix my laptop, i have tried every fix i have come across and nothing seems to help. My problem is that my laptop constantly returns to the lenovo splash screen.  I have replaced the hardrive to an ssd as i presumed this may be the problem it detects the hardrive so i believe it is working as intended.  When i try to do anything fresh install of windows, change bios settings etc the laptop closes these windows and returns to the lenovo screen. One issue i can maybe see is that in BIOS information it detects two hardrives the samsung ssd i have installed and a liteonit lss-16l6g . What is the liteonit hardrive? i cant seem to remove it. Has anyone had the issue where it constantly returns to the lenovo screen even when trying to install windows.  Thanks

To make a long story short, I've been asked to help fix a friends mom's U410 laptop which wasnt activiting Windows 8.1 properly (Was Windows 8 OOB). After struggling with the activation for a few hours, I backed up the data and decided to just run the Lenovo one key recovery. During the recovery process, the installation had failed. When I attemped to reboot, no Lenovo splash screen was loading - just a black screen (although i can hear the cooling fan start, and hear the harddrive spin up. I tried to access the boot menu thru the novo button, and nothing would load; still a black screen. After researching for a few more hours, I had found multiple threads about bios updates required to be able to access bios with windows 8, and other threads about gpus on these units booting to a second screen (which i did test, and the second monitor does indicate a signal). None of the solutions on those threads have given positive results.   Basically, I've run out of options and am looking for some suggestions. The only thing that shows up on the display at anytime is the small blue novo menu when the button is pressed (normal start up, bios setup, boot menu, system recovery - all of which just leave a black screen). Thanks.

Hello my friends ! A time ago i bouhgt two Lenovo ideapad 100 14 IBY (FreeDos Version) and install Windows 10 on it with UEFI and GPT Partition Table. All works fine until i want to play around with Linux and install UBUNTU Mate in UEFI on one of them. The install was easy but the Performance on Ubuntu with Bay Trail and the don't working Bluetooth was a reason to switch back to Windows 10. After that the Problem beginns. The Bios don't let me save changes anymore (only time and date !). There was no UEFI ESP and GPT Support since i install UBUNTU and the Bios Menu looks like that:Bios Entries on a blank DiskBootingThe Disk is Blank there is no ubuntu on there (Don't know waht the EFI Entries are no Hardware is connected). And when I boot also go to Network Boot there.(No Matter a USB Stick is connected). So what i did: # I Dismantle it and disconnect Battery and Cell and wait half an hour. # Nothing changes !# I change the HDD. # Nothing changes !# Reflash the BIOS by edit the plattform.ini - CheckByBios=1 - Error Cannot mount EFI Partition. # Nothing changes !# Install Windows 10 - Make mbr2gpt.exe and bcdedit and bootrec. # Nothing changes ! I can install and run Windows 10 in MBR and BIOS Mode on it. But no USB Stick was displayed in Boot Menu. So now Iam on my Limit and the Question is there a way to put UEFI and GPT back on it or does the BIOS locked in this State. For me UEFI is MALEWARE so why can a simple UBUNTU damaged my BIOS and ...

Relying on the information on the Lenovo website listing "Ubuntu" and "Redhat certified" under "Operating Systems", I chose a Lenovo P52. The device arrived, and I opened BIOS settings to prepare for the Linux installation I had planned. After changing some settings, I chose "change settings and reboot", and the device entered a nonresponsive state: Screen black with the exception of a single white pixel in the left upper edge of the screen. After about 30 minutes, I tried a re-boot; again, the screen stayed black. No Lenovo logo appeared, clicking F1 (or any other function key) did not lead into the BIOS settings. Customer support told me this was a technical defect, and I sent the device back to the dealer. A week later, the new Lenovo P52 arrived.  This time, trying to set up the BIOS for Linux installation, I always changed but a single setting and chose the "Save and Reboot" option.

A few days ago I had some problems with my HDD so I brought a new one.  To install Windows in the new drive I plugged in the DVD drive that Lenovo ships with the laptop and tried to boot from it. That failed and BIOS got like "programmed" or stuck with configurations that doesn't let it recognise any boot media no matter if it is a USB stick or HDD, no matter if I try to change the configuration of the BIOS it would always get back to the initial state of not being able to boot I even tried to reset it by unplugging its battery and the laptop battery but the only thing that happens is system time starting from 0 while any other configuration stays the same.  I thought this could be fixed using crisis recovery mode, but the laptop doesn't recognise the BIOS loaded on the USB and never make any sort of beep or alert noises, the screen doesn't show anything either and fans just get to 100% I really need help to solve this problem, it's like the BIOS got stuck in the last configurations before plugging the DVD drive in. (The Boot menu still showing that there's a USB booteable device even when it is not plugged in).

Hello everyone! I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn`t find any kind of solution for my problem.Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system, which also previously was Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). The installation went as usual, and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site, for my product. When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i`ve needed, i stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop, by the producer. So i proceeded to install the upgrade, restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so, but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual. At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing, things that i did not understand at the time (i have never encountered anything like that). After that my screen turned black. I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that, but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter. When trying to boot it all up again, the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else.After doing a little bit of research it appears that, somehowm i`ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something, and nothing else would work at this point.

HI, Please skip to paragraph six for the actual issue I am having--the preceding paragraphs include info that may help to identify how to fix this. I am posting this using my HP desktop running Windows 7 as my Lenovo Ideapad 110 cannot connect to internet as explained below: Firstly, Sorry if I am breaking community guidelines in any way with this post.

Everything was running fine until yesterday. This is when I made the mistake of thinking I knew more about the system than I actually seem to lol :/ So, yesterday--I entered the "BIOS" screen upon startup using F2 (function key+F2). I went on to disable wireless connection ability (to test something unrelated), and also switched Boot from strait UEFI boot mode to legacy/UEFI boot-with UEFI being the default boot option.  I don't know if any of the above have to do with the issue I am now having but I wanted to share it just in case. Here is the real issue as of now: Also yesterday at the same time while in "BIOS", I also went on to set an "admin password", the one you must type in before you can even get to the lenovo splash screen to enter "BIOS". Basically I believe this is referred to as a POST password although I am not an expert cleary (hence asking for the experts' he... Read more

I'm a new owner of a Flex 4-1570 Ideapad. I have a critical update awaiting install, however the window popup says it is for the YOGA not the Flex. Thus, I have not installed it. My question is, should I install it? If not, how do I turn the notification off? Thanks!

Hello all, this is my first time posting here so please forgive any mistakes/oversights. I've just updated my Samsung laptop's system BIOS via their software update program, and my Nvidia GPU (GT 650m DDR3) no longer seems to work. The Nvidia control panel is still there, and it still gives me the option to select which programs use the GPU, but there is no GPU actitivity showing up. Also,I've tried playing Skyrim (which auto-detects the PC's graphics cards) , and the game no longer seems to detect the Nvidia GPU (just the Intel integrated graphics).

My laptop model is NP550PC7, with 6 gig of ram, and an i7 quad core CPU, and the OS is Window 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I've tried looking in the BIOS but I can't seem to find anything related to the GPU or display options. Any help or avice is much appreciated.

Hi,

Have you updated your GPU with the latest drivers?

http://www.geforce.co.uk/drivers

Please navigate to:

Start> Control panel> Swith to icon view> device manager.
Look under "Display Adapters"

Is the Nvidia GPU listed there? If so are there any yellow symbols etc?

Cheers

Dave

I forgot my bios password. What should i do? Can i crack bios password?

A:Lenovo g50-80 bios

Hi ANiK_ ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums,
 
Passwords are highly confidential info .Before, older computer can do manual reset doing the jumper and reset cmos but nowadays security for password access is now embedded on the chipset and would no longer rely on battery maintained storage. Many would offer their BIOS crack utility for a price and unguaranteed result.  Same reason why some CMOS battery would also be soldered on the board.
 
Solution : (Quoted from the document)
 
" To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty."
 
Check your warranty and give tech support a call.
 
 
Regards

I downloaded the new lenovo y50 bios version: 9ECN43WW released 10/22/2015.  However, whenever I turn the laptop on, it makes the fan whir up really loudly for a few seconds and then goes into the windows login screen.The same thing happens when I turn it off: the fans accelerate and spin loudly for a few seconds then shuts down. Is there a way to prevent this from happening or to revert to an older bios version? There is only the 9ECN43WW bios in my C:/ bios folder. Thanks in advanced.

I have the above computer (obviously...lol) and for some reason the BIOS will not take a flash update utilizing the approved Lenovo utility Insyde Flash nor will it save any of the changes that I make in the BIOS. Right now it is stuck on Legacy Boot and with Legacy as priority but when I try to insert a Linux boot drive it will not allow me to boot from it as it does not even recognize that there is a USB inserted into the USB port. I have tested this will all 3 of the USB ports. When I boot into Windows all 3 ports are fully functional and work with no issues.
I do not know what has happened and I have tried everything that I can possibly think of including desoldering the BIOS battery and resoldering it. (I have not replaced the battery but I didn't think that was a viable solution considering the age of the laptop.
