Lenovo Vantage issues on T430, T430s and T470s

Q: Lenovo Vantage issues on T430, T430s and T470s

I'm having some persistant and extremely annoying issues with Lenovo Vantage on the device models in the title. In short, the app will open and then close immediately. It displays no error message and all other apps work fine. Initially I was using my enterprise server to deploy custom Windows 10 v1709 images to these devicing using MDT with SCCM integration. Deployment, and all its process scripts, work as they should; all drivers get installed, etc; however, as stated, Lenovo Vantage simply will not work. I have physically installed the OS' on the devices to no avail. I have enabled Developer Mode and sideloaded the app into the image both offline and online, and I have re-registered the App Packages on the system using PowerShell to no avail. The only way Lenovo Vantage will work is after doing a reset on the devices which is simply out of the question as a permanent solution. There are no health errors with any master image created on the server, all dependancy packages Lenovo Vantage states it requires within its package pack are still present within each system, there are no features enabled or disabled via Group Policy or the registry that prevent any sort of app access, nor are any of the actual app sensors disabled. Moreover, the master images we build these OS' from simply only have bloatware Provisioned Application Packages removed (Office, Skype, BingWeather, etc.), a custom Start Menu and Task Bar Layout applied and WinMagic automatically provisions and sets up the Opal 2 security-subclass the SSD drives use for key management. On the flip-side, if I take a RS2 (build 15063) of Windows 10, and basically remove every app, component package and feature on it, while basically completely locking down the device from any non-explicit access, Lenovo Vantage will work fine and just request access to the camera, microphone, etc., so I am not sure what the deal is with 16299+ At this point I'm figuring it's simply more reasonable to go without Lenovo Vantage and write something of my own that incorporates some of the features it has because after a few dozen trial-and-error runs, it seems like the only options are to run a full OEM build of Windows 10 RS3, or revert back to RS2. Has anyone else experienced this utter annoyance?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I'm installing Win10 v1709 with Vantage in an MDT task sequence without any problems, using the method described here: https://support.lenovo.com/ch/en/solutions/hf003321

How exactly are you installing Lenovo System Interface Foundation? Are you installing it on the deployed machine, or are you trying to somehow include it in your master image?

As an experiment, on one of the machines with the broken deployment, please try to uninstall and then re-install Lenovo System Interface Foundation, will Vantage start OK then? Instructions here.

Hello everybody, My T430 which clearly is not a T430s is identifying itself as a T430s in Lenovo Companion. I ran Lenovo Bridge to scan the serial number of my T430 so I could add it to my devices in my Lenovo account. Again, it came up as a T430s! And stuff like Custom Battery Threshhold and USB-Always-On settings don't work! ...I'm so tired of trying EVERYTHING to stop this unit (which as been refurbed with Windows 10 Pro 64bit) from going into suspend randomly. I'm going to try un-installing Lenovo software and see if I fare better!! Yet another reason not to use Lenovo bloatware!!

I have a T430 (W10pro64).  I want to replace it with a T430s (also W10pro64). Can I put the SSD from the T430 SSD into the T430s and everything will be cool? Otherwise it takes hours and hours to install all the programs I use. I guess there's the fact that the T430 doesn't have exactly the same hardware as the 430s. Will running Lenovo System Update install drivers for hardware that wasn't there before? Thanks for any help

In this first screenshot of Lenovo Vantage running under Windows 10 (64) on my X1 Yoga (1st generation), please notice where it says that I need to install Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105.  However, in the second screenshot, please notice where the Installation History shows that Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 was successfully installed already. Everytime I boot up and run Lenovo Vantage to check for updates, it tells me that I need Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 so I let it install it. Everytime I install it, the installation appears to be successful and my computer reboots, but then after rebooting, Lenovo Vantage again tells me that (1) I need it, (2) I already have it. This is crazy.  In the third screenshot (looking at Windows Device Manager) I see the Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A. The fourth screenshot shows that it is disabled.  I will enable this and then retry to install the updated. I'll report back in a second posting on this thread whehter it works.  (I would leave this posting open and finish it later, but I'm afraid it woud all be lost when I reboot).

I have been wondering why there are two methods to get updates for my X1 Extreme.One update method is via the Lenovo Vantage application (under Windows 10 Programs)The other method is to go to the Lenovo Support page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-...); I used the full URL with model number, but you can also use the main support page and use 'Dectect Product' which uses Lenovo Service Bridge to detect the laptop model and serial #. I have used both, but am probably going to stick with Lenovo Vantage. Which method are most of you using? PSell is similar in this regard. They also have multiple update apps / methods for some reason.

Hey all ... here is a screenshot of the current state of affairs: Note: this is the Win 10 Pro 64-bit OS, Version 1803 ... Windows Update is ' ... up to date'. I have tried various Lenovo Vantage Critical / Recommended / Optional update selections (in their respective groups and / or alone) and re-booted every time following failed system updates ... I cannot seem to break whatever log jam is occurring here. I thought perhaps trying the IME 11.6 Firmware - 10 [64] - V.11.8.55.3510 update alone, or, the ThinkPad BIOS Update - 10 [64] - V.2.26.1.18 update alone (they are both 'Reboot Required' updates) might get me past this issue, however, so far, no joy.  There is a 'Fully charged (100%)' battery installed in the system. Thanks for any insights offered, FFF P.S.  I would also be interested to find a Lenovo drivers list of older Synaptics Pointing Device (ThinkPad UltraNav / Touchpad) drivers for my P70 machine ... does such a historical driver resource exist?  The reason being, the more recent touchpad drivers are unsuitable for me ... too sensitive / 'sticky' (adjustment of various touchpad settings doesn't cure the usability issues) ... I much preferred the behaviours of the earlier drivers but can now only Roll Back to Driver Version: 19.3.4.202 (16-Jan-18) ... I'd much rather use the July 2017 driver version, whatever the version number was (possibly 19.3.4.112).

I read other posts and none specifically addressed this for the 920 and the use of what is actually a good Lenovo config tool seems to be poorly documented.   I would think it would be the same for any Yoga model with Windows 10 and Lenovo Vantage installed.   I can't seem to find a version for Vantage, so hopefully this works on all versions.    1) Find and open Lenovo Vantage on your machine (use Cortana if needed).   This is the Responsive view and yours may look different...don't worry, options are the same.  Click on Hardware settings  2)  Click on Input (again, responsive view...whatever view you have should have this button labeled the same)  3)  This will open the Hardware Setting - Input UI.   Under 'Function Keys' click on the one that is labeled 'F1-F12' (should look like below, highlighted in blue) to make that the the Function the default setting for those keys...to further clarify: it will now be a Function Key (F1-F12) by default.    With this change, you will press the FN+ one of the function key for the Hot Key option (e.g. FN+F1=mute/unmute, FN+F2=volume down, etc.)     4)  Your change is already saved, so you can now X-out (click X in the upper right) of the pop-up windows created by that were created

Hi Poykl, Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with Bluetooth adapter on your ThinkPad T430s. This could be issue with function keys check with pressing Fn+F5 key and you will get an option to enable Bluetooth and Wifi adapter check with this option. If you are not getting the option then I think your system is not shipped with Bluetooth adapter, please provide the MTM (Machine Type Model) number which will be at the back of the system written on the white sticker so that we will confirm if the Bluetooth is shipped along with the sysetm.
Hope this helps.

No problems of any significance until today. That little battery status indicator did not work.I ran the Lenovo Update. It was version 4. The v4 gui showed up and after a minute it disappeared.Went to Lenovo website, installed the Lenovo Service Bridge to detect my serial number and machine type.Got the latest Lenovo Update, ver 5 and ran it.The critical was selected, selected the recommended and most of the optional updates. One of them was the bios updateAll the updates loaded and installed, bios last. Warning said to close down everyting and leave laptop power alone. Typical. I was not worried.Laptop shut down.Current state: green power is on. Fingerprint reader is off. This usually means the laptop is on. When it's off, the fingerprint reader flashes. I think the power button does, too. Laptop is unresponsive to power button and to the touchpad. Disc reader runs when disc is inserted. Tech support says wait for a day. Machine is out of warranty. Anybody have anything in their experience to help get this working? Thanks in advance!Pete

Just did a clean install of Windows 10 on my T430s (Core i5 with 8 GB RAM and 128GB SSD).When I attempt to boot the laptop it hangs on the Windows logo with the small circles rotating and freezes. This happens randomly and it will boot properly 3 out of 10 times. The other times I have to power it off and on until I get the repair console and then tell it to boot normally. Sometimes this will boot but others I have to power it off and on repeatedly until it starts up. I had the same issue with Windows 7 so I'm stumped if it's a driver issue or something else going on with my laptop? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Just wanted to add a Me Too to the list, so its not a one-of experience.Recently bought a referb T430 and am loving it.I upgraded hardware to 16GB RAM and a 500GB Samsung SSD to amp up the experience and so far so good, except for this failure to boot experience that has now appeared.I had also upgraded from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro. Maybe a mistake?When the boot hang started i did various things like force power down and CTRL-ALT-DEL and on reboot everything would be fine. Thankfully.I have run the Lenovo Hardware scan thats part of Lenovo Solution Center with no errors.I have almost come to the point of doing a Windows 10 Reset but wanted to do some research first and found this reference to the same phenomenon.I am wondering whether it may be SSD related? I could try cloning back to a standard disk drive.I also still have the original Win 7 128GB SSD. I can also try that to see if the problem goes away.Will update if any further discoveries are made

RELEVANCY SCORE 54

Hi there,I am a Lenovo new player. I have a question ragarding LENOVO VANTAGE APP. When we perform the application, we could find out some information like "System Status", it list out some information (Memory, CPU etc... ) with Green Light or Red Light. my question is what the Green or Red indicator light mean??? 

A:Regarding Lenovo Vantage

Hi Hilfiger1014! Congratulations to your new Lenovo device and welcome to our forums community. Where did the red light indicator appeared? Did you run a hardware test? If yes, can you send the screenshot of the result to us? A red light after a hardware test pertains to an error message wherein there is a possibility of a hardware failure. For more information about the application, you can check this link: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht505081.
