Lenovo T430u BIOS update 2.13 slow

Q: Lenovo T430u BIOS update 2.13 slow

Hi! I updated my Lenovo T430u's BIOS from version 2.11 to 2.13 this morning and everything is slow since. I mean: sloooow. I had a functionnal dual boot Windows 10/Linux Mint but now Linux Mint takes around 3 minutes to boot. It took 25 seconds before. I figured it was related to the disk so I did the memory and disk diagnostics but everything seems ok. Even booting from USB/DVD is slow. I tried restoring default settings from BIOS, putting the battery in maintenance mode, removing the battery and even disconnecting the CMOS backup battery for an hour. I then tried to downgrade the BIOS but it does not seem like an option. This would probably fix my problem since everything was ok at version 2.11.I am really out of solution here! Please help, my computer is not usable in this state :/ Julien

Preferred Solution: Lenovo T430u BIOS update 2.13 slow

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.)

It looks a lot like this problem:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T500-takes-15-minutes-to-boot-after-bios... The only thing is that I don't have an "Intel AMT" option to disable in the BIOS :/ Help!

Hi All,

For the last 3-4 days every time I put my laptop into sleep mode or click shut down, it goes through the normal shut down process, the screen turns black, but then never turns off.

This happens when the lid is closed, sleep or hibernate is clicked, or if shut down is clicked.

I'm running Windows 7 with the latest Nvidia drivers and windows updates.

I've used BSOD viewer, appcrashviewer and wincrashviewer but none seem to be recording these system hangs.

I did disk check and it found no problems, as well as windows repair and it found nothing. When I go to "Check Memory" within windows repair it attempts to restart, but does the same hang when trying to restart and thus doesn't run.

I also started up the laptop with everything but windows startup programs not running to see if that solved the hanging but it still was happening.

It seems to be a driver problem or something having to do with the software, but I cant track down what the problem is.

Are there any other programs I can run to try and diagnose the problem and fix it?

Thank you!

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. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, trye... Read more

bought this recently, and must say that i am pretty pissed. i did installation of windows 7 on it and it worked fine for some 10 days till it got BSOD cause of bad system info and couldnt even load into windows. only solution was to reinstall. i did fresh install and i got BSOD with fresh install after only few days. checked internet for solution and saw that you could select windows 7 os in bios for optimized settings that should prevent BSOD. but no option for windows 7 in bios. only for win 8 and other OS. i thought ok, i will just download latest bios and flash it. but what happened when i downloaded bios (a2cn38ww) from support page?i got this message "your machine does not match with this bios". so does anyone know where i can actually  download correct bios, or how to contact lenovo support so they can tell me where to download bios?

hi mahdhir2005,
 
Im sorry to hear that.
 
  I would suggest you call the Lenovo Technical Team regarding the Issue. If it is the BIOS that's causing the issue then there maybe no source or option to have it fixed without they're help or service.
 
  If the BIOS software you downloaded was from a legit Lenovo Site and correct model, then I think It will be ok to Just report them what happened and ask for possible option.
 
Hope this helped
Thanks!

Hi, I recently bought the Lenovo g50 (80e501g3us) laptop that came loaded with Windows 8.1. I decided to downgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) because the laptop came loaded with spyware such as Superfish and I prefer Windows 7. I first created a system image of the computer for safety and then i rebooted with the Windows 7 CD. I had to delete all of the partitions in order to install Windows 7. The installation was a success and I started updating all of the drivers for my model based on the Windows 7 64 bit OS that I got from Lenovo's website. All drivers except 2 worked which said it required an update. I then flashed my BIOS with the version that I downloaded from Lenovo's website thinking that this might solve my problems. After the BIOS was flashed I received an error that this was the wrong BIOS.Now I get the following errors: Default boot device missing or boot failedInsert recovery media and hit any keyThen select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media This then present me to the boot option menu with the following option only listed:efi pxe network I have inserted the DVD that I used to install Windows 7, however, it is not being recognized or loading since the only option is efi pxe network.

Reset the BIOS to default before you do anything else. 
 

Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
Remove main battery
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
Replace main battery
Replace AC adapter (plug into wall then notebook)

This should reset the BIOS to factory defaults, but you should enter the BIOS to make sure your boot order has been changed to indicate your choice of booting (DVD, HDD).  I would also turn off network boot (disable) as you should not need that option for Windows 7, 8 or 10 to work correctly.
 
Good luck.

First of all I want to say that I am extremely disappointed with the experience I had with my Lenovo. After I bought it I found out that Lenovo, for some reason, disabled the Turbo Boost option of the CPU. I tried to fix it by entering the BIOS but the options there were limited, so I decided to update the BIOS. I downloaded the BIOS update for 64-bit windows(i am running windows 8 which is compatible with the said update utillity). I ran the .exe and followed all the instructions (did not shut-down restart or anything my computer). After installing it automatically restarted and a Lenovo logo prompted on the screen followed by ">>Start PXE over IPv6, Press [ESC] to EXIT..." after that "EFI Network 0 for IPv6(numbers and letters) boot failed". Then ">>Start PXE over IPv4" which failed and a blue box poped saying "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery Media and Hit any ket then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". Pressed ok and got me to Boot Manager screen. Boot option Menu had only EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and EFI Network 0 for IPv4". What should I do?Note that I tried to start up both with and without the ethernet cable in.

I found this procedure on a lenovo forum. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. If not, it is not worth putting money into fixing this laptop.. New ones are pretty cheap and having a new mb installed in this one will cost more than a new laptop.

BTW the spelling errors are from the forum NOT mine.

When I look up your system on the support page I see quite a few updates, drivers and such that support windows 8.1 and 10.  If you are looking for a BIOS update or patch, those are usually OS neutral and are applied with either a BIOS utility or patcher that works in DOS mode and some can use a windows based utility.
 
Are you trying to use a BIOS update to fix an issue or just get the "latest and greatest" for your computer?  Mostly I would not recommend updating your BIOS unless it is absolutely neccessary to fix a troublesome issue or problem with hardware.

A month ago I bought a 128GB SSD and did a clean install of Windows 10 on my new SSD. After booting into Windows 10 on my SSD in Legacy Mode, I format the partition in the 1TB HDD which houses my default installation of Windows 10 (the pre-installed Windows 10 by Lenovo). I did not completely wipe the HDD altogether and thus I still have the partitions created by Lenovo. The main issue that is stopping me from installing the update is my BIOS settiings. In BIOS boot submenu, I have it set to Legacy and then Legacy First so that it detects my SSD. UEFI does not detect my SSD. Default settings sets UEFI instead of Legacy. In conclusion, I cannot install the BIOS update even if I wanted to because I won't be able to boot into Windows 10 on my SSD once I change BIOS settings to default because UEFI (default settings is set to UEFI) does not detect my SSD. My questions are: -1. Does anyone have any solution or workaround to this problem ?2. Is it really compulsory to set the BIOS settings back default ? Or is it just a "... Read more

I also have this problem- when waking the computer from sleep, the Wi-Fi is disabled and can NOT be enabled without restarting the computer. It says that the device is switched off via hardware button. The wired connection works, but it's frustrating having to restart every time I want to use Wi-Fi.

A while ago I posted the possibility of upgrgrading my 6GB Lenovo V570 to 16GB.  It seemed as if it would be ok, although contrary to what Lenovo stated, but I chickened out.  Instead I've been living with my unit opearting very slowly and having the desktop manager and shockwave flash frequently fail.  It's not wonderful dealing with this and I have been looking for answers.  I thought about adding another couple of GB and along the way found suggestions on updating the drivers and bios.  Anyone savvy enough to advise on what drivers being updated would improve and how to accomplish this?  Also how is the bios updated wihtout screwing everything up?  I'm also thinking of doing a factory resore after backing up all the info on the unit.  Woudl a fresh start help or should I just  save my money and buy a new windows 10 computer?  Thanks!

specs:480GB ssd, 12gb ram, AMD A10 9600p APUEver since updating my laptop to the latest bios, my cpu performance has reduced based on the benchmarks, i have also noticed reduced framerates in game:Geekbench 4:before updated bios:2100 single core4540 multicore maxafter bios update2100 single score 4230 multiscore maxperformance test 9 benchmark CPU score:before bios update:4200max, integer scores aroudn 7930 maximumafter bios update:3900 max, integer performance is reduced down to 7300 maximum which brings down the overall cpu score. Other problems include:1. Fan speed increases uneccessarily even when web browsing which is very annoying.2. GPU clock speed reduces just after 2 minutes of gameplay, for example it will reduce from 600mhz-720 down to 480mhz to 570mhz maximum, this has a negative effect on framerates in game, whilst doing so the GPU temperature is reduced for 58 degrees celcius average down to 50 degrees average.3. Not sure if this is a problem but in game the GPU never reaches 100% utilisation.4. Memmory is clocked at 1866mhz which is strange as the minimum frequency for ddr4 ram you can buy is 2133mhz, would be nice if it was increased to 2133mhz in a future bios update.5. when the laptop battery  reaches 30%, the CPU clockspeed reduces down to 1.15ghz which causes severe stuttering in game and makes navigating through the OS very unresponsive.6. The CPU clocks fairly low during games such as bf4, gta v and fifa 15 it ranges from 0.77ghz to 1.9ghz... Read more

I'm here to request Lenovo to update the bios to enable the M.2 2242 42mm for SSDs? This is really bad since our office PCs have been upgraded from T450s but it seems we are downgrading as we cannot use our originally bought M.2 2242 for the old T450s. Can you please update the bios to enable this the 2242 for SSDs? We need more diskspace to do some graphics and photo make ups on the road. The single 2280 is not enough since when we got the machines, only 512GB was available.

A:T460s - Request Lenovo to update the bios to enabl...

I don't believe that the PCI-e circuitry is still present for the WWAN card slot on the T460s so it's not as simple as a BIOS change to enable the previous functionality which was present in the T450s. There is a 1TB option for the T460s which is the PM961 SSD which could be installed in place of your 512gb SSD, but that may not be an option in your case.

Hi.I have a problem with my battery not charging (at 1% left and power connected) and get an error message that my battery is not recognized by Lenovo, even though it's the same battery I've had for 4 years (the laptop is as good as new, and I don't want to change it).Apparently, a BIOS update should work, according to several web forums, and it worked when I had the same problem some time ago. But since then I have updated to Windows 10 and I can't find any BIOS updates for my laptop which is compatible with windows 10. And those that are compatible with windows 10 are not compatible with my laptop. Will there ever be an update, or do anyone have another solution to my battery problem?INFO:Windows 10 Home 64 bitIntel Core i5-3337U 1.80 GHz8GB RAMCurrent BIOS id: 7ECN19WW

Hi Lenovo Forum.I've bought this Notebook a month ago and I'm fairly satisfied with it.After I've done some tweaks such as removing the dust filter and downgrading the BIOS, the performance is great!But I ran into some problems after using it for a while now.I saw that there is a new BIOS update and I wanted to test it, but when I start the .exe it gives me: Runtime Error (at:1611):Out of String range. When I use CPU-Z to look up my Hardware, at BIOS it says Missing String or in the Lenovo Settings App BIOS: N/AI've read that others had this problem too, but no one has found a Solution. Does anybody know what I can do?

Hello,I have flashed my laptop's BIOS with the tool from the support page, I can see that the new BIOS version is installed (0ZCN26WW), but the EC version is different (0ZEC25WW).I have even enabled the BIOS rollback feature so I could flash it twice as I've seen in a different post, but still no good luck. Is this a normal behaviour? Should let it be, or do I have to do anything else? Thanks,Alex

Hi,  I would like to ask anyone here if you guys can help me with the Bios update 2014 5FCN95WW private/public installation.  Here's what I did: All was fine on my Z480 when I came from W7 Ultimate to W10. Then I notice after 3 months that some online games can't be played with W10 so I decided to go back to W7 Ultimate. So I did a clean installation of W7, My Bios version is 5FCN95WW 2012.. So I checked some updates on the web of Lenovo and found 2014 but with the same code of 5FCN95WW... I wonder why, so I download it and install, it restarted my pc and I thought all is okay, but when i checked the System Info it's still says 2012..  Now, my brightness adjustment using Fn+ up and down arrow keys is now having some issues. It wasn't there before.. Everytime I adjust the brightness, The Bar that shows on my screen is not calibrated or not accurate. It adjust by 4 rows each time i press it, so from high pressing the down button just once it drops to 4 bars and pressing it again shows no highlighted bars anymore but the brightness of my screen is still the same.  I uninstall Energy management and restart my pc and reinstall it again but still the same. My Fn+f4 and Fn+F1 are also not working anymore..  I tried to flash the Bios I downloaded from the web but I am getting an error saying "Error: 182 - BIOS Image is equal or older than ROM"..  I went on the bios settings to ENABLE the Bios Flash config...

Hello, Lenovo team Can you please, add to your next BIOS update for Lenovo Y50-70 a fix, that my laptop won't lose CPU speed after i return my laptop from sleep mode. Right now i'm using BIOS version (3.03) There is no other way to fix this issue, only you can do it with a BIOS update for that model of laptop. Thank you.
