W530 Windows update, Lenovo Update, Camera/hokeys no longer work

Q: W530 Windows update, Lenovo Update, Camera/hokeys no longer work

Hello, I've had my w530 for a few months. Everything was working fine until a windows update, followed by a Lenovo Critical update completion. My hotkeys, camera and on screen display are non functional or only partially functional. What works:Fn+F4 (sleep)Fn+F8/F9 (Screen brightness)On screen notification of Screen Brightness change What doesn't work: Fn+F3 (lock - to be honest, I don't know what it locks anyways)Fn+F5 (bluetooth/wireless radios - there is an icon on the task bar which calls up the "on screen display for these)Fn+F6 (integrated camera)All other on screen displaysIntegrated camera is completely inop Unknown if functional:Fn+F7 (Projector) - There is not even any indication saying "You don't have a projector connected" or something Lenovo ThinkVantage (very hard to find, my older ThinkPads all had icons on desktop or start menu) says all my drivers are up to date. Lenovo Service Center says no updates are needed. I downloaded the Hotkey Integration Driver per many other posts in the forum. I am unsure as to what other drivers to download. When trying to run Hotkey Integ Driver or Power Manager updates/driver, the install package insists on pointing to C:\non lenovo folder*\Camera or PWRManager or Hotkey\ Why? Should they not point to the default locations for these updates? I have a client meeting (video call) tomorrow (Tuesday 28 August), I'll also need this rig for events on both Saturday and Sunday (weddings, this is my backup performance computer).

Hello,I am using Lenovo Companion on my W530 running Windows 10. Recently I installed the Windows 10 version 1703 (Creators Update), and checked for Lenovo updates with the Lenovo Companion.  The software found 1 recommended update, Intel PRO/1000 LAN Adapter Software - 8.1/10[64] - V. However, on several attempts I am getting the same message, "Failed installed". Does anyone know the cause?Regards,bostjanv

Hi, My camera stopped working after the Windows 10 update. I think it's the driver so i tried installing the (only) one that lenovo offers:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/no/es/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkp...However when I try to install it it says "no appropriate driver to be installed". This thing is driving me crazy, my touchpad was affected by this too, I can still use it but the gestures don't work. So I want to be able to repare the camera before I mess with the touchpad which is my main concern. HELP! Also, the camera does appear in the device manager so my problem isn't solved by pressing F8 which is a common solution. Thanks.

Hey everyone,

Hope somebody can help- my computer is an HP Pavilion dv7 PC Notebook, running Vista 64bit, everything at it's most updated. I got prompted to update my system by Windows Update, and I went ahead and clicked on the ones that were security oriented, and one pertaining to my Nvidia HD driver figuring that it couldn't hurt. Well, immediately after this was completed and the system restarted, there arose a problem. The mute key on my quickplay touch pad above the keyboard stays lit orange, meaning muted. I can touch it and the icon in the volume control on the screen will become muted, and I touch it again and it becomes unmuted- but the key itself remains orange as if indicating it's muted... which it sort of is. I'll explain: there is only sound coming out of the subwoofer on the bottom of the computer itself, not out of the high quality speakers above the keyboard. It's troubling me, and I've gone through all the typical procedures, reverting back to the last updated state, deleting the updated files, etc. So, essentially, I know I could use headphones (tried, and they seem to be working fine) or external speakers, but the one that was built into my unit was absolutely top-notch and I loved it. It's troublesome to spend so much money just to have something dumb like this happen, I've had this unit for months and have had no issues until this. I highly doubt it's virus related- just doesn't seem to be the case, and I've scanned for them numerous times now with... Read more

Hello people I require some help.

After Microflops recent updates this Tuesday almost all my games except minecraft (thank god) have stopped working, I click on the desktop icon and some might load to the "click to play" screen but won't do anything after that and STEAM won't load at all.

Now I've been browsing the net and I found that Microsoft decided to release 6 botched patches this Tuesday and one of them KB2859537 has been causing issues with some games for people.

So far to no avail I will add I have uninstalled the KB2859537 patch and tried to do a system restore but it didn't help as all games are still unresponsive.

I have also done a full system scan in safe mode with Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwear bites, both of these came up clean.

As I still haven't found a way to get my games running normally again I am wondering if you guys and gals could suggest anything to me as I'm out of ideas.

Also Please note it's nor possible for me to re install windows as I was never issued with the win7 cd when this system was built for me.


A:Almost all games and apps no longer work after recent windows update.

Hello,Anyone ever run into the case where Lenovo Thinkvantage System Update does not include newer drivers that can otherwise be found on the W530 Driver download page? I hapened to look at the Lenovo Security Advisory page the other day and noticed the following issues pointing to new drivers for the w530 (the severity on both are listed as "High"):LEN-15854:  NVIDIA GPU display driver contains multiple vulnerabilities in the kernel mode layer handlerCVE-2017-6251, CVE-2017-6252, CVE-2017-6253, CVE-2017-6254, CVE-2017-6255, CVE-2017-6256, CVE-2017-6257, CVE-2017-6258, CVE-2017-6259, CVE-2017-626009/21/201703/11/2018LEN-14587:  NVIDIA GPU Display driver contains multiple vulnerabilities in the kernel mode layer handlerCVE-2017-0341, CVE-2017-0342, CVE-2017-0343, CVE-2017-0344, CVE-2017-0345, CVE-2017-0346, CVE-2017-0347, CVE-2017-0348, CVE-2017-0349, CVE-2017-0350, CVE-2017-0351, CVE-2017-0352, CVE-2017-0353, CVE-2017-0354, CVE-2017-035507/27/201703/11/2018 But when I run System Update I am NOT presented with these updated driver to download. I would assume these should have been pushed out as "Critical" updates. Also, it looks like there were previous versions I did not get notifications on as well. I also get the same results if I run the System Update via the W530 Drivers download page to detect my system and tell me what drivers I may need to install. This problem seems to be only with the Nvdia Display drivers for some reason.Anyone else ever see...

A:W530 (Win7 64 bit): Lenovo System Update - Not Notified of Newer Nvdia Display Drivers

I run both my W530 (K1000m) and P70 (M3000M) in "discrete graphics" mode.  I have no use for Optimus/hybrid graphics mode on either machine as they are either always plugged into AC power or even if running on battery they can survive for 1-2 hours before being plugged in again.
So I have no use for the Lenovo graphics driver file either through System Update or simply by checking the download page.
I have been using the latest nVidia retail graphics driver forever, since getting both laptops.  It's actually the same download for both GPU's for both laptops.  I'm currently running the latest 391.03 in Win7 on both W530 and P70, as well as 391.03 in Win10 on P70.  I keep them up-to-date by force of habit, although I probably have no need to upgrade the driver at all.  Nevertheless, never had a problem using the nVidia driver.

Hello FF users, Have you any ideas on this updating hiccup ? FF is not my default browser, but I do use it often. It has certain benefits which Chrome does not have.
I have updated FF religiously throughout its long history of new versions from my ancient version 3 to the current version 24. Up to version 23  everything went Hunky-Dory, but when I just updated version 23 to 24, the God Mozilla got angry for some unknown reason and my tabs no longer work.
Having made a few snoops around and found nothing out of place that was not there previously and looked at the web with no real result, except to find that others have the same problem, I would be grateful if some kind soul in our BC family could reveal the secret of this catastrophe and how to rectify it.
Thanks in advance.

A:Firefox V23 update to V24 : tabs no longer work.

You could try resetting Firefox. But read what it does before deciding. I know they included a way to
close multiple tabs that's new in 24. It could also be one of your add-ons causing the problem.

If you decide to go the resetting route and the problem disappears, go slow in adding back your add-ons
to check if one is the problem. Test after each reinstall.

I was away on a trip, so I let my parents use my laptop while I was gone. They say it updated, something, but afterwards froze, so they turned it off. Turns out it was several different updates, including a BIOS update. Everything else works fine except for my usb ports which no longer detect anything connected to them. The device manager gives me little yellow warning bubbles by Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller and Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller. It says code 19 error and the config info in the registry is missing or damaged. I have tried updating the drivers, uninstalling and letting it re-install, but it hasn't worked. I'm running on a HP Pavilion dv6-3013cl Entertainment notebook, Windows 7 (64bit).

Any help is appreciated.

I just updated many of my drivers for my WinXP Compaq 2580 Presario Laptop. My speakers were working perfectly fine earlier today, now after the update, I can't hear anything. I have tried troubleshooting, and still nothing. Even when I try roll back on my sound device it doesn't work. I have expanded my Volume Control and nothing is muted. Another wierd thing is that when I plug in headphones I can hear sound, but when I unplug them, I hear nothing. Please reply with any info or help at all, thanks. I love you!

My new Logitech HD720 webcam ( 10 months old) that uses USB and sits on top of my laptop worked great under windows 10 .. but since the July 29th / 30th windows 10 anniversary upgrade my web cam doesn't work at all ..

..it recognizes the hardware but won't display an image . .I have reinstalled the Logitech software but it still fails to work ..

I'm sure I read somewhere that this is a legitimate issue and unless you 'tweak the registry' the webcam won't work until windows 10 does another future upgrade to fix this problem ...

Hello,I recently installed the Windows 10 Creators  Update (version 1703) on my W530. Everything seems to be  OK, except for the fact that it won't go to sleep automatically according to the settings. My settings are "Balanced" power plan, go to sleep after 15 min. when on battery, and after 30 min. when plugged in. However, these settings are simply ignored. My computer never goes to sleep. I tried to get help from Microsoft; however, they were unable to help. I also looked at Lenovo's list of systems tested with W10 Creators Update; unfortunately, W530 is not yet on the list. Anyone has an idea?Regards,bostjanv

Hi, I recently was prompted to do an optional update to the touchpad driver via Lenovo vantage. Since then the custom settings for the touchpad have reverted to the generic windows mouse settings. There used to be options to turn off taps, gestures etc. I have set the touchpad to low sensitivity for taps but it's still too sensitive when using the touchpad and it often clicks on things I don't want it to. I have uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled based on my serial number and still the same. I'd have thought this is how it is but knowing that I used to be able to turn things off like taps, then this is why I am trying to find a solution. So far haven't had much luck with support via Live chat with Lenovo or via email. Can someone help? I need taps turned off and want to be able to access those settings like just recently.

I have a Thinkpad W530 (2438-4KU) running Windows 7 Pro, with a 3rd-generation (Sandy Bridge?) Intel processor (Intel Core i7-3630QM). Even though BIOS Update 2.70 had been listed in the Critical tab in Lenovo Update -- presumably because it addressed the Spectre and/or Meltdown vulnerabilities -- I purposely held off on installing it. Doubly so after reading comments on this board about pc?s running at hot and widely-varying temperatures after installation. Well, just now I ran Lenovo Update again, and was expecting to still see a BIOS update listed in the Critical tab since I hadn?t applied it. But I was surprised to see that the only BIOS update listed is now in the Recommended (not Critical) tab -- Update 2.71 -- and the only vulnerability it states as addressed by the update relates to Intel Active Management.  (There are no updates of any kind listed under Critical now.) So is 2.71 cumulative, i.e., does it have the Meltdown/Spectre patches even though not listed in the specs? And if so, shouldn?t it still be listed as Critcal in my run of Lenovo Update since I never applied 2.70? In addition, I?d appreciate any feedback from W530 users with Sandy Bridge as to how BIOS 2.71 (or for that matter, 2.70) is working for you -- particularly if you have Windows 7. Any heat issues? And what kind of practical performance hit did it cause (comparing to 2.69 or earlier)? Thanks

I recently bought a Crucial MX500 2,5zoll 3D NAND SD 1 TB SATA_7mm _with 9,5 mm-Adapter_ThinkPad W530_Quad Core - Crucial DE; an exchanged it against The Lenovo buildt-in Drive0-HDD : TOSHIBA MQ01ABD100 (1TByte=size as the SSD!), which went then, into the former DVD-bay via a Amazon.com- Nimitz 2nd HDD SSD Hard Drive Caddy for Lenovo W510 W520 W530- Computers & Accessories as now :HDD1. I did the OS Win7 prof_de_x64 cloning with the "Crucial Storage Executive"-program. All works well and a immense increase of bootspeed was recognized. Same with app-speed increase! Their way of OS-transfer is well described in some videoclips and worked fine. Question : Before this i used the LENOVO W530 ExpressCache Programm on the former buildt in HDD0 which is now the SSD. Does this program interfere with the SSD's own cache programm , activated via "Crucial Storage Executive"-program? Do i have to DeInstall the LENOVO W530 ExpressCache Programm ? best regards

You should uninstall the ExpressCache software, as it is no longer needed if you are booting directly from a SSD.

I have a Lenovo Yoga71015ISK. The camera driver does not work in Windows vers 1709, OS Build 16299.334. I get the error code 0x00F4292 from the windows camera app. I have tried the installing the driver offered here, but it resulted in Windows crashing and not recovering. I had to reimage and reload. With a fresh Windows image, I again installed the driver offered here at the Lenovo site and it again crashed windows, resulting in the need to reload windows again. Please support this product by providing an updated camera driver for the current Windows10 version being offered by Microsoft.

Windows Camera update ready in store to be downloaded

A:Windows Camera Update in store

Will look for it for my tablet when I get home, thanks! My tablet has dual cameras and only one was showing up in the camera app until I went through the powershell routine of uninstalling the camera app, applied a registry tweak, then reinstalled the camera app so I hope the update doesn't break it.

I just noticed today that My windows update won't run anymore. It's the red X image that lots of people are describing and when I try to turn it on it says it can't turn on because it's not running. Windows update is not in my services at all, nor is BITS. I've tried getting in command prompt and as far as it tells me, Bits is an invalid service name. wuauserv is also an invalid service name. Its like all of the sudden Windows update and the programs people recommend messing with to fix it are all gone. Windows defender is also not present on my computer anymore. I don't know why. I tried downloading it and it is telling me I already have it. I can see it in my search box but when I click on it to turn it on it says "the specified service does not exist as an installed service."

I am in the process of getting rid of a trojan dropper so I wonder if these problems could be related. I have been able to update just fine in the past.

A:Windows no longer genuine after update

The installed Key is NOT a retail one - it's an MAK Volume License one, which is not valid for resale. The Key has been abused, and MS have blocked it.

I would NEVER buy software in eBay - particularly Windows software - as it's known that over 50% is counterfeit.

Here's a variation on my standard spiel...

The Key in use is an MSDN Key from a not-for-resale MAK Volumme License.
Unless you are a member of the Licensed organisation, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so.
You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

The other day, I wasn't able to log into my laptop. The login prompt would not show, and when it did after n restarts, it would get stuck logging in. I decided to refresh my laptop and start from scratch.
While updating my files and programs, I tried to use Windows Update. It wouldn't work, so I used Fixit tool found on Microsoft's support website. Everytime I run the program, it fixes the same couple of problems. It won't download updates or install them, and it alternates between saying there are updates and there aren't. The view update page doesn't load correctly, and restarting doesn't fix anything. I don't think it's a virus, since it's pretty much a clean hard-drive and all of my antiviruses come up clean.
Where can I go from here?

After updating Windows 7 Pro, my computer stopped booting with an "Error loading Operating System" immediately after BIOS is done.

Right now, I'm using an EeePC running Ubuntu. I formatted an USB flash drive to NTFS and used dd to write the Win 7 64-bit Recovery disc onto it. I added "Removable Device" to the top of the boot order in BIOS, but the computer still displays "error loading operating system" immediately after exiting BIOS, regardless of which USB slot the flash drive is in (my computer has four USB slots).

Now, I'm out of ideas and looking for help.

I have my laptop with Win 8.1 set to automatically download updates and to notify me when any are available so I can see what they are before installing them. When I realized that my almost-daily Windows Defender definition updates were not showing up, I investigated and found no check for updates had occurred since August 4th. Trying a manual check, I got an error message with a code of 80244019. Nothing I found in Windows Help or on the web has been useful.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem? Other than installing updates, I haven't made any changes whatsoever to the laptop in months.

I am running: Windows 7 64bit
On: Acer Aspire 5750 laptop

For a couple months my computer has been locking up at random intervals for several seconds each time. I got no error messages and each time it came back acting fine, so I just assumed I had too much running. Now, I'm not so sure it wasn't the HD failing, because...

Last week, I noticed the shield on the shutdown button indicating windows needed to run an update. I closed out of everything and pushed the button to shutdown/install updates. The computer immediately crashed almost as if I had held down the power button. When I attempted to restart it, my only 2 options were to start normally or launch repair mode. Normal didn't work, so I launched repair. Repair ran for close to 4 days. In the first 36 hours it asked to be restarted twice, after that it just kept running until finally I gave up and shut it down with the power button.

Like a moron, I do not have a recent backup of my files and really wish they could still be saved.

Since then:Tried to rescue files with Umbutu boot stick- error said it could not mount to drive.
Tried to launch safe mode with command prompt via F8- system went back into repair mode instead.
Tried to launch to last known good configuration via F8- system went back to repair mode, again.
Tried to launch via Windows Boot Disk- the screen it gave me was not the same screen as the screenshots on the forums suggested I should get. My screen was an Acer logo with 3 option... Read more

I run into the issue where Windows update is no longer working (keeps searching forever) and the CPU usage is at 50%. I found that others encountered the same issue on this forum. However, it was not clear to me what the solution is.
I had the problem previously in which case a reboot and time seem to have resolved the issue. No longer.
I kept the PC up-to-date so far. However, I had to uninstall two updates to enable a function that MS eliminated.
(KB3185330 and KB3108699.). The feature it disabled: hosting IE inline a Silverlight app within Microsoft Media Center).
Does anyone know how to fix this CPU usage issue? Other than disabling Windows Update?
