Preferred Solution: T440s BIOS bug

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'd like to upgrade the BIOS on my T440s from the original version [GJET83WW (2.33 )] to the latest available here as a CD ISO [GJET92WW (2.42)].How can I do this without using a CD drive? As an aside, I'm running Linux, not Windows, but that shouldn't matter for the BIOS update... Cheers.

HelloI have a big problem.I purchased online a T440s brand new. I opened the box for the first time myself. When I enter BIOS it asks for password and I just hit enter without entering any password. I can enter the BIOS but i can not change any settings.What can I do? Can a brand new thinkpad come with a BIOS password out the box?I get conflicting information regarding the type of password. First image says it's power on which can be removed but bios says its supervisor.

A:Brand New T440s with BIOS password

Indeed, it may happen. Sometimes large customers request preconfigured laptops which may include customized supervisor passwords. Of course, you should have not received one of these units. Ask the seller for a replacement unit, as there is no easy way to remove an unknown supervisor password without replacing the laptop mainboard.

Hi, a couple of days ago I let Lenovo Assistant perform four automatic updates, critical, as they were pointed ? three driver updates and the BIOS. As I noticed, the BIOS was updated with the help of BIOS update utility, the system restarted correctly and flashed the downloaded image. Now it?s shown in BIOS setup window to be a current version - GJET90WW UEFI BIOS, GJHT29WW ECP. Previously it was a version of 2.36 package.The system boots, but the OS (Win7 x64) stops loading on Win logo after this BIOS update. While loading is the safe mode it stops on classpnp.sysUnfortunately no other Win OS (Win XP, Win 8, Win 10) or pre-installation environment (win 8 PE, win 10 PE) could be loaded - the same problem. No way out except turning of the notebook with the power button (even pressing emergency reset button has no result). The system hangs.I've tried doing all the stuff with removing the internal and external batteries, extra memory, SSD, loading from USB with/without SSD, from external CD, rescue disks, forums of classpnp.sys load problems  etc. Except trying to load Linux.Besides, I?m unable to reset any previous version of BIOS with the help of BIOS Update Bootable CD (If the UEFI BIOS has been updated to version 2.40 or higher, it is no longer able to roll back to the version before 2.40 for security improvement)? Does anyone have an idea how to do?Thanks P.S.     SSD is ok, fortunately I?ve got my files from it on another P...

All other menu items from "Hardware Password Manager" to "Power-On Password" do show up. Does anybody have the same problem? Is there another way of setting the hard disk password?

Are you using the Lenovo factory preload as you received it from Lenovo?  Or did you do a clean install of Win8/Win8.1 yourself?
 
Did you buy your system directly from Lenovo, or from a reseller?

Hi, I'm trying to update a T440s, currently on version 2.28. The update just reboots but does not perform the update steps. After preparing an USB stick with FreeDOS and using the lcreflsh.bat I got an error code which suggests to disable the security chip. Afterwards the Windows Flash program updates the embedded controller at reboot but not the BIOS. Using the DOS flasher I got this message:Checking for files and environment ... Done.
Start flashing ...
Error during flash. Error code = 19712 ( 81 )Does somebody know what this error code means?

So I was trying to update my BIOS version from 2.30 to 2.41, but it's seemingly stuck on 2.30. When trying to upgrade for the latest version, the DOS window show a progress bar and it reboots into flashing the Controller with the fans going on full. However, when running the flash utility again the same "System BIOS Version -> GJET80WW" pops up. The BIOS version ID in the BIOS is still the same. I've tried both the Windows and bootable BIOS upgrade version with the same issue.I've also tried interim BIOS versions which seemingly (same behaviour as described above) down or upgrades to a certain version, but regardless, the 2.30 version shown in BIOS is still shown. According to the logs it all seems fine:OS = Windows 10 64bitDriver Loading....DoneSystem BIOS Version -> GJET80WWApplying BIOS Version -> GJET91WWSystem EC Version -> GJHT25WWApplying EC Version -> GJHT29WWAC adapter/Battery check....OK.BIOS Flashing....BIOS Flash completed.EC Flashing....EC Flash completed.   Any clue how I may go about solving this? Thanks.

Hi, yesterday I let Lenovo Companion (I think that's what it was called) perform a system update in Windows 10. At one point I saw it updated the BIOS and then went to reboot itself. Now it won't boot up. I press the power the button, the keyboard backlight flashes, and it then remains "on" for 65 seconds, then turns itself off. The screen remains blank during this whole time and pressing keys doesn't appear to do anything. I've tried doing all the stuff with removing the internal and external batteries, pressing the emergency reset button, trying booting only on battery, trying booting only on AC power, holding the power button for 30 seconds with everything disconnected, removing the RAM, removing the SSD, etc, etc. It just seems stuck in this state. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, Yesterday I updated to the newest BIOS-Version (2.29). I also installed the newest Graphics Driver (Intel 10.18.10.3910). After the BIOS-Update I changed 2 settings in the BIOS:(1) I increased the RAM of the Graphics-Card from 256MB to 512MB(2) I changed the Boot-Mode from "Both" to "UEFI Only" A few hours later something weird happened: The fan suddenly started to work at a medium level (not maximum) and didn't stop even after 1 hour the fan didn't stop. I restarted the OS but the fan still didn't stop. Then I closed the LID (so the Laptop does "Suspend to RAM") and after I opened the LID the fan did stop. The same thing happened again today.So, what is this? I'm not sure if this has something to do with the BIOS/Graphics Update or maybe something in my T440s is broken? I'm running Windows 7 x64, installed in UEFI-Mode.

A:T440s Fan-Problem since Bios/Graphics Update

I noticed that lately my T440s fan has been running constantly while my T440s is on (i7 with 8gigs Ram). Even if I close all applications and its still going. I ran mcafee virus scan an hr ago with the latest virus definitions and it found no viruses or malware. Was not like that before. Seems it started after the latest windows 8.1 update. what gives?

Hello,On my T440S, since BIOS v2.37.1.13 (with little hope that v2.39 would fix it, I installed it to no avail), I can no longer enter hibernation.When I try to do so, the red LED blinks multiple times and then the computer immediately wakes up. The event viewer only shows:The system has returned from a low power state.Wake Source: UnknownThe workaround is to either unplug all usb devices, or disable USB 3.0 support in the BIOS, which sucks for a 1000e + laptop.Otherwise, the computer enters a sleep-hibernate-wake up loop which is draining the battery.When do you plan on releasing an update (BIOS or USB 3.0 driver) to fix this hibernation issue?Thank you.

Dear Users, Since a few moments I am a (happy) owner of Lenovo?s new and business class model T440s. As I could find out, Lenovo is building in two different displays. On the one hand there are several model with aLG-DisplayModel: LP140WF1 (sp)(k1)P/N: 0C00349FRU: 04X0626 And the other from AUOModel: AUO B140HAN01.2FRU: 04X0436 (You can look up your displaymodel via BIOS, Everest or any related program) As far as I could find out in the world wide web there are several users reporting with a LG Display in their T440s that it is in quality inferior to the AUO Display. It seems that Lenovo is ready to replace the LG with an AUO display, sending out a tech. My question is what your experiences are and what can we, the owner of a  LG-Display, do?Is there a real quality gap between these two types of Display? My T440s, as i mentioned, has a LG Display. I can live with this one, if there are no great difference in the quality to the AUO Display. I am excited about your opinions.Thanks Fire

A:T440s - LG or AUO Display

Don't sweat it. Both are absolutey huge upgrades over the TN panel. While the AUO is a bit better, its not worth the trouble. I have both and I like both. I did a compare on the same thread u heard about the issue.

Apologies if this question has been previously answered.  I searched and couldn't find a response.   I'm still using the original HDD that came with the laptop.  I'm thinking of upgrading to an SSD and cloning the HDD to the SSD.  My question is what to do, if anything, with the, M.2 16gb cache that came with the laptop.  Should this drive be left alone as is in the laptop after the HDD to SSD upgrade?  Should it be removed?  Should anything be done to the M.2 drive if I upgrade the HDD?  My understanding is it currently speeds up the computer at start-up and with an SSD, this wouldn't be all that necessary.   I appreciate everyone's time.  Thank you.   -Rich

First off, I am an Electronics Technician by trade.  I have 25 years of experience with all kinds of electronics.  This one has me scratching my head.  This all  started because I had an issue with my touchpad so I changed it out.  During the process I removed all power including, power cord, external battery and internal battery.  Replaced the mouse pad and put everything back together.  When I went to power it up I got no response.  Here are the things I have tried. 1. Hold the power button for a minute.  Tap it 10 times then hold anothe minute.2. Remove all batteries and press the power button for 1 minute.3. Remove all batteries and the RAM module and press the power button.4. Press the reset button through the cover on the back of the machine.   5. Lastly I disconnected the CMOS batter along with all other power.  The last step actually let me me boot up my machine and everything was working like normal.  I was happy I had fixed the problem, but I didn't.  Once I shut down the machine it still will not power back up.  I have to disconnect the CMOS battery again in order for me to powe up the machine.  Once the machine comes back I updated the BIOS to the latest version and that didn't help either.  I am stumped!  Any advice that anyone can give me is greatly appreciated.

This is probably a simple problem, but I can't figure it out. Device: T440s running Windows 10 Pro Problem(s): If I unplug it from the power adapter, re-plugging it has the following effects--it does not recognize that it is plugged in, and the red light over the 'i' on the lid repeatedly flashes a fast sequence of four short flashes followed by a brief pause. It does this until the battery drains and then it shuts down. Adding some further confusion: It will not shut down or restart when plugged in. It will sit on the blue, "Shutting Down" or "Restarting Windows" page for as long as I leave it. I have to force it to shut down by holding down the power button until it turns off. And yet further confusion: If, while it is turned off, I disconnect the external battery and plug in the adapter, I get the standard three flashes to indicate that it's charging. I can then reconnect the external battery, and it charges like normal though the light gives me an occasional double-flash as it charges and the charger gets hotter than normal.So, I'm not sure if this is a bad adapter, battery, motherboard, or something else entirely. I'd like to fix it before my Macbook wielding colleagues catch on and give me grief. Any help is much appreciated.

I have 3 Dell U2414H monitors that support DisplayPort 1.2 daisy chaining.  I purchased the T440s with docking station.  The laptop arrived before the dock.  It has Windows 8.1 Pro x64 running.  I setup the monitors to daisy chain off of the T440s miniDP port.  I got exactly as I should.  3 separate monitors.  I could maximize windows inside a monitor and they'd maximize to their monitor.  I could drag windows between monitors.  Everything is working. When the dock came in (today) I left the monitors daisy chained.  I did change out one cable (that I know is working) so that the DP input would attach to the dock's DP output.  I am not getting a picture on the monitors.  If I use just one monitor, and turn off DP1.2 (in the monitor's menu), I get a picture on one monitor.  Do these docks not support daisy chaining?  I've verified that I'm on FW 2.17 for the dock.  I also want to submit a support ticket with Lenovo, I just don't know how to do that yet.  Thanks!

Hi I have a 3 month old T440s. The computer won't boot and the LED lights behind the Fn, F1 & F4 keys are permanenty lit. Holding down the power button isn't force restarting or doing anything.  Any suggestions as to what to do? Thanks

A:T440s not responding / restarting

Hi Swazi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with not responding on your ThinkPad T440s.
 

Please check with connecting only power adapter.
Check with removing the battery and connecting only power adapter.
Check with removing both power adapter and battery, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and after 30 seconds connect only power adapter and try to switch ON the system.

If the issue still persist after performing above troubleshooting, then it might be issue with system hardware so we request you to visit nearby authorized Lenovo service center.

Hi, I'm aware I'm not the first one asking this question, but none of the proposed solutions in other threads worked for me so far. Problem: the Touchpad can only perform a leftclick and rightclick but it cannot move the cursorSetting: T440s, Windows 10 attempts:- uninstalling driver and installing Synaptics driver (no effect)- installing Windows Updated (no effect)- updating BIOS (no effect)- disabling device in devmgmt and rebooting (curser can be moved while pressing the touchpad down) reenabling and rebooting (cursor cannot be moved anymore)- disabling and reenabling touchpad in BIOS (no effect)- reverting to an older driver version (no effect) and updating driver again (touchpad works for a couple of seconds as it should, even the cursor is moving! Then it stops again )- uninstalling driver and let Lenovo System Update do its job (no effect)- refreshing Windows (no effect)- completely formatting harddrive and reinstalling Windows from DVD (no effect) then trying all of the above again (same effects) I know its not a hardware failure, because when booting Ubuntu the touchpad works just fine! Settings->Touchpad->Additional Settings->ThinkPad shows the Touchpad in Grey. The Dropdownbox "Pointing Devices" only offers "Use Trackpoint Only" and "Use Classic Trackpoint Mode Only". This does not change at any time while performing actions listed above. Both selections where tested after all of the attemps listed above, none showed any effect.&n... Read more

I have an issue with my new T440s, Win8.1 Pro fully up to date with the latest Synaptics 18.0.7.40 driver from the Lenovo update. I am using a freshly installed copy of Windows rather than the provided image. Sometimes when working with the touchpad and clicking the pad down to drag something, it's as if ClickLock has been turned on from the mouse control panel settings, where it acts like the mouse button is held down until you click (not tap) it to release it again. ClickLock is turned off in the control panel. I found that the issue is greatly reduced (but not gone) if I turn momentum all the way down under Advanced -> Motion. This is driving me nuts as it's seemingly random. If I click and drag to select text then go to move the cursor, sometimes it acts like the mouse button is still held down and I change my selection. Or, sometimes I just want to move my cursor and it ends up dragging something or selecting text. Anybody else experiencing this? Lenovo please can you sort this out. I find myself using the touchscreen more and more as it's simply more reliable than the trackpad!

A:T440s Trackpad - ClickLock bug

Still experiencing this, but not heard anyone else mention it?About 25% of the time when I drag to select text by pressing down the pad, it still acts as if the button is held down after I let go and I have to click it down again. The fact it is so unpredictable is so frustrating, I end up having to double tap the pad to start a drag motion instead.

Hi, I'm setting up my new thinkpad t440s and I cannot get my trackpoint to work.  It does not respond and in my mouse properties/thinkpad section, the Touchpad is clearly enabled, but the Trackpoint options are all greyed out.  In the pointing options dropdown, I can only see the option to 'Use TouchPad only.'  I strongly prefer the Trackpoint to the Touchpad and would prefer it if possible. I currently have Synaptics pointing device driver version 18.0.7.109, the most recent version.  I've tried rolling back to previous versions and this issue still persists.  I also have gone into BIOS and disabled and re-enabled the Trackpoint in boot settings. Unfortunately, since this is a work machine, I do NOT have the capability to remove the keyboard or replace parts.  Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated.
