Drivers on Lenovo Vantage is outdated

Q: Drivers on Lenovo Vantage is outdated

Some of the drivers in Lenovo Vantage are out of date? Lenovo Vantage prompts me to install the older driver version after I have downloaded the latest drivers from some of the official websites like Intel or Geforce Lenovo.

Preferred Solution: Drivers on Lenovo Vantage is outdated

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.)

Hi all,I have a new Yoga 920 and want to make sure that I have the most current drivers installed from the Lenovo site. Can I trust Lenovo Vantage that it checks for the most recent drivers/updates? Thanks,Marco

A:Can I trust Lenovo Vantage with keeping my drivers up to date?

I trust it BUT realize based on my experience it sometimes is 1-2 weeks behind what you see on the driver download page.  Which to me is ok in case there is an issue with the driver other people will most likley post issues on the forums about it first.

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).   

A:ENDLESS LOOP: Lenovo Vantage Tells Me To Update a Driver That Vantage Says Is Already Up to Date.

After enabling the driver in Windows Device Manager, then again trying to update, the update was successful. After another reboot, Lenovo Vantage no longer show that this needs to be updated.  I'm no programmer, but it seems to me that the Lenovo Vantage update program ought to be able to see whether a driver is disabled and to tell the user to enable it in order to allow successful of updating of the driver.

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

I had a hardware issue with my new Yoga 920 and have the motherboard was replaced the Lenovo Vantage app displays as an IDEAPAD.  Been round and round with support to no avail.    I am 100% certain - but with no way o prooving - that before the motherboard was changed the Lenovo Vantage app displayed as a YOGA920. Can another send me screen shots of their home page on the Lenovo Vantage app so I can show support I am not making this up?

A:Yoga 920 and Lenovo Vantage

I dont have a Yoga 920 but I believe you.  I think what happened to you happened to my nephew.  When they replaced motherboard on my nephews Yoga 720 they were supposed to update model number and serial number on the motherboard but they forgot to.  They did not.    Now Vantage wont work on my  nephews laptop since Vantage doesnt know which model number it is to lookup for software update.  If you go into BIOS is the serial number model number missing there too?  
Now the only way support says the laptop can be fixed is to ship laptop to repair center for repair centers mistake.
 
Below is my post from months ago in regards to my nephews Yoga 720.  I still have no resolution since he was at school at he needed it for studies and didnt have time to ship into Lenovo.
 
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/720-13-motherboard-replacement/m-p/3957342
 
On the bottom of the Vantage screen it should show your device make, Serial number , Product number and BIOS version.  On my nephews 720 that information is missing since its missing from the motherboard.

Yesterday I tried to launch Lenovo Vantage, as I do periodically, to check if there is anything I should install (although I have it set to auto update). The Vantage in my Add/Remove list is dated September, 2018. I have Win10 Pro Build 1803. (I have not received 1809 yet.) When I try to launch Vantage, I get a message to download the latest version. After I do that and try to run the installation, I get a message stating that "Vantage has Encountered a Problem" and goes on to state that the user can either try again or restart and try again. I have made numerous attempts with the same result. Lenovo tech support says I should buy a software warranty and then it will try to fix the problem. (I bought the extended warranty when I bought the X1 Carbon. It runs until 2020. I am an experienced user, former software developer, and have done professional tech support. I will withhold comment on Lenovo expecting me to buy a new warranty to solve a problem like this. Have you encountered this problem? Do you have a suggested solution?

Hello,
New here. I'm wondering if old drivers can cause a bsod. I ran one of those "check your pc" programs and I have a bunch of old drivers(hdd, video, WiFi, etc) bit anytime I check for driver updates it says I have the best driver right now. I get bsods once a week or every other. What can I do? Do not have a minidump on hand at the moment as typing from windows phone.

edit: added image of drivers said to be outdated. will add minidump when crashes

A:outdated drivers/bsod

Welcome to the forum.... not sure what to think of your name though

yes, outdated drivers can cause BSOD's. However, your post and info doesn't tell us enough for that. Example: if your system was running fine, for a longer period of time... and you changed no drivers... then chances are it might be something different, unless you use some specific piece of HW for the first time...

Please post full info as instructed in http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

I know you can use a minidump file to check for outdated drivers, but what if you don't have any dump files or anything recent? I want to know if there's a way to check all my drivers like you would in the dump file for outdated drivers? aka drivers that need to be updated and could possibly cause problems.
I've tried Google but all I see are using Windows Update or checking Device Manager which isn't very helpful.

A:How do I check for outdated drivers in W7?

Well I was looking through some random CMD commands and found Driverquery... It appears to give me similar information, but I'm still curious how the user got that from what I gave him. There's got to be other ways of doing this.

Another nice thing to note for those who don't know about this command is you can type Driverquery > driver.txt to export it to a text file.

The Vantage settings save for a day or so and then revert back - IOW, every day or so I need to open Vantage and reset these to what I want them to be (hella annoying), not to mention will just shut down when battery gets to a certain level.
