Preferred Solution: LENOVO G400S BIOS UPDATE PROBLEM

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.)

I just bought Lenovo G400s notebook last day , i would like to use the standard F1-F12 key in some application/ software. The problem is that instead of just pressing F2 I have to now press and hold the Fn key + F2. Is there a way to switch back to standard key just like the software for usb slim keyboard? I checked my BIOS there are no option to switch Fn Key or hotkey mode, Fn Key Lock option under the Configuration tab. Any solution can solve my problem?  Thanks

Dear Lenovo Staff,I'm experiencing multiple issues running Ubuntu on Lenovo Y700-17ISK laptop:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/Problems-running-Ubuntu-on-Lenovo-Y700-17ISK/td-p/3278... At the end, I installed Windows 10 alongside with Ubuntu 16.04 only because of BIOS updating.During the last month or two, it was impossible to find any BIOS file on 'Y700-17ISK Laptop - Lenovo Support' web page.Today I finally found a new BIOS update file: Released 7/18/2016, Version CDCN35WW. But when - hoping to solve problems running Ubuntu on Lenovo Y700 - I attempted to install this latest BIOS update file through Windows 10, I got the following error message: "the version of ROM file is the same as that of BIOS". And then I found this forum post (05-18-2016):"Please be advised that Lenovo is in the process of removing the BIOS CDCN35WW for ideapad Y700-15ISK, Y700 Touch-15ISK, and Y700-17ISK laptops in response to customer reports that the software does not execute as expected. Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW or a newer version of the BIOS will be made available". Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW version of the BIOS will be made available again????????So I downgraded my BIOS CDCN35WW to BIOS CDCN30WW, and after that I installed again BIOS CDCN35WW - everything went well, but now my BIOS shows it is CDCN30WW version??? I would be very grateful for any help, thanks in advance.

I think you may have concern in this thread,
http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Essential/G580-Bios-update-problem/m-p/1199186/highlight...
 
Here the suggested solution from neokenchi that helped.
 
1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
 
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
 
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)
 
Hope this helps,
Cheers!

Ok, so, about a year ago I bought for my GF's birthday a G400s, and oh boy, if I knew it would be one of my worst purchases ever made, I swear to the seven heavens that I would just give the money to the charity... So the problems started with the Samsung HDD that came with the notebook, it stopped working in 3 months after the purchase, then after a long battle with Lenovo Brazil (witch by the way, is one of the worse company that I had the displeasure of ever getting to speak with their Customer support), I gave up and bought a new HDD and changed it by myself. Then again, the notebook made a favor of frying the HDD... Then after that I changed again, and guess what? The notebook won't boot up again!!!

hi gapgrg,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried Pressing the novo menue and try accessing the recovery.
   You might still be able to put back the original os back and start with the downgrade again.
 
You can also try booting from the DVD / CD or USB but you have to check if these settings in the BIOS are met.
 
 
Got to Exit Tab and Change OS Optimized Default to Other OS
 
  Save and exit the boot into BIOs again
  Under Boot Tab
          Change Boot mode to Legacy
           USB Boot should be enabled
    Under Security
          Secure Boot Has to Be disabled
          
Once All are Set Make sure to save all changed by hitting F10 and enter for Yes
    After Hitting enter It will Restart and You have to keep on tapping F12
       this should pull up the Boot Menu letting you select where to boot. You should have now your USB Stick as an Option or DVD/CD. Try to boot from those
 
Hope this helps
Let me know your findings
Cheers!

Hi iyyappan_3,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
First make sure that the Audio driver and the dolby will be in sync.
Open Device Manager 
    Uninstall the Audio Device Under Sound and gaming controllers / Make sure to place a check in the Delete driver software prompt.
           
Now make sure you don't have any dolby components
    Proceed to Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall a Program
                     Uninstall all Dolby Related programs
                             Restart if Prompted
Now install this software driver
 
 https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/audio142w81.exe
When you install this software it will show you a directory path whre it will extract, Make sure to Remember the path
 
This next xtep is important

Open the directory path where the Audio driver installer extracted the Audio driver.

Check all the folders inside it and find the Dolby Installers, Install the Dolby either Advanced audio or Digital plus.
 
ANd you should now get your dolby back
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

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?m currently updating the BIOS of some Lenovo ThinkCentre M83 PCs and I came across a problem. The Flash UEFI BIOS update (provide by Lenovo) worked almost perfectly on the first PCs, despite it didn?t automatically open the console and started the flashing process.Anyways I did go on with my work. Almost all other PCs had the problem that when the second phase (yellow font)/ afudos.exe imagefb.rom /defans /capsule /b /n /r /sp started the afuwin.exe stopped working (it crashed). It seemed like the Update wouldn?t get done this way so I decided to try it with the USB Flash method, also provided by Lenovo, but it also didn?t work. It says in the second phase ?15 - Error: Secure Flash function is not supported on this platform? Last but not least I tried to update the BIOS with the CD-ISO but when updating with this method it says that the BIOS-Version is too old. Some information about the system: ThinkCenter M83Type: 10BE0003GEOS: Windows 7 SP1 64bitBIOS-Revision: FBKT73AUSBIOS last Updated: 01.April.2014 Furthermore Information what I found out:BIOS-Revision seems to not matter (same version but some worked some not)Doesn?t matter if BIOS is set to UEFI only or Legacy onlySecure Boot also seems like it doesn?t matter if its on or notWhen the afuwin.exe crashes it only writes a return codeI use the update provided by this Page from Lenovo (Update: fbjycpusa)https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/de/de/downloads/ds035753 Thanks...

Hi. I have a Lenovo B50-30 mode 80ES. It was set to require a password on startup starting with a capital "A". While experiencing charging problems, amongst other things, I updated the BIOS to 9CCN35WW, downloaded from the Lenovo support site. Since updating, the laptop no longer asks for a password on startup (No big deal, I applied a windows password), however, when pressing F2 to access the BIOS (which I need to do, the F keys are the wrong way round), it asks for a password, When pressing to strike a capital A, the laptop beeps and doesnt enter it. It wont accept capital letters anymore, therefore it wont accept the pre BIOS update password. I have referred the laptop to Lenovo service, including returning the laptop, and they have been nothing short of useless. They said they couldnt repair it under warranty because of "Marks, cracks, inappropriate treatment" and it would cost 255 for a replacement system board. I really couldnt see why I should pay for an issue created by their support system, so I asked them to return it unrepaired. Upon arrival, the laptop was immaculate, so I dont know what damage they were referring to. Is it possible to downgrade the BIOS to a pre update revision, to change the password and then reset it to one the new BIOS approves of? Thankyou in advance.

Hello everybody. I have got an old lenovo G560 that I wish to upgrade a bit as the laptop is in perfect condition and it is mostly used for browsing and some light software developement. My Lenovo G560 Specifications  are as follows: Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64) Build 17763.195Motherboard Chipset: Intel HM55 (IbexPeak-M DH)CPU Brand Name: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 330 @ 2.13GHzVideo Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 310MTotal Memory Size: 4 GBytesBIOS Version: 29CN18WW(V1.06)  I found out that I can upgrage my CPU and I got an i5 520M - it fits absolutely perfectly into the motherboard, however, when I start the laptop I get black screen - not even the Lenovo Bios splash screen. Fan and other led's are operating. I have tried removing ram modules - no success. Here is a list of supported CPU's that I have found on this very same community: ? Intel Core i5-520M (2.40GHz, 3MB L3, DDR3-1066, PGA)? Intel Core i5-430M (2.26GHz, 3MB L3, DDR3-1066, PGA)? Intel Core i3-350M (2.26GHz, 3MB L3, DDR3-1066, PGA)? Intel Core i3-330M (2.13GHz, 3MB L3, DDR3-1066, PGA) My guess is I have to update my BIOS to fix this since I currently run a very old BIOS Version: 29CN18WW(V1.06) I have spent hours searching the Internet for updates but without any success. Would you please guide me on when to find the update files to a newer version? Thank you in advance!
