Preferred Solution: Lenovo g500s bios updating problem. While updating...

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.)

Pan761,

The correct version of BIOS update has been just released - BIOS Update for Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit)

Now there should be no problems with it's installation.

The BIOS update went smoothly. But with the new BIOS version, no operating system is loaded. The Windows installation hangs in the "Starting windows" stage. Different Linux distributions are also not possible to install and also to boot into Live CD mode. The BIOS switched various modes, AHCI \ Compatible, Legasy \ UEFI. I tried different options.How can I now restore the old BIOS version?

Hi,yesterday I updated new BIOS 9SKT99A to ThinkCentre M92p (motherboard is7xm rev. 1.0). BIOS is taken from the official website of Lenovo. The update was made using the program "Flash UEFI BIOS update (Flash from operating system version)" - 9sjy99usa.exe from Windows 7 Pro x64.Now after BIOS update is PC constant reboot. The last picture before rebooting: FW status recovery error. This message hangs 0.5 seconds on the built-in video card, or 2-3 seconds on the external video card (in my case, the NVIDIA GT 730). Only thing I can do is access BIOS setting or choose boot device thru F12 or F1.I did:F9 (reset to default) and CMOS reset - no change, Boot mode UEFI or LEGACY - no change, Boot device (USB/DVD of W7, W8, W10, network boot) - no change, Disconnecting all boot devices - nochange.I need help.Thanks,Dmitriy.

A:Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p. After updating the BIOS from 06/30/2017, the system restarts constantly.

Burn a CD with the BIOS ISO, and follow the procedure for recovering from a failed BIOS update in the HMM.   If unsuccessful, do the same with the previous version of BIOS, which is at the very bottom of your system's BIOS download page. 
 
Edit:  try the older version first, if that works, then do a regular CD ISO update to the latest.

Hello All,

I saw this tread which included some issues with AHCI and I have a few questions.

I recently upgraded my bios on my 965P-DS3 V3.3 motherboard from F10 to the newer F12 version. I went straight into settings and tweaked the Bios per a guide I found on hardocp forums.

I enable AHCI, and set some other SATA settings (my current drive was plugged into an orange socket). Rebooted, XP was sluggish to load and then blue screened. I then disabled AHCI and rebooted using optimized defaults. Only now I'm experiencing very loooooong load times on just about anything. Games, apps, the HDD light is on but it doesn't seem to be reading all the time. Things will eventually load but it's taking 10x as long as usual. So the HDD works, but something is definitely screwy.

So my question is due I revert back to F10 Bios, or do a windows repair or roll back to a restore point, or did I seriously screw up my HDD??? I think I know my course of action (roll back the bios), but I just wanted some more info before I take that risk and frustration of potentially screwing it up. So if anyone has a similar experience with the HDD and this board, plz let me know how you fixed it. Prior to the Bios Update things seemed to be working fine.

Thanks,
Jack

Welcome to our forum spinalgr1990.

Are you having a problem that you think updating bios will solve?

Are you trying to update the bios exactly as the motherboard instructs you to.

These are just some basic question that need to be answered no matter what motherboard you have.

What are the bios you have now?

Is this the exact message you receive?

I've downloaded the file from the Toshiba website, and now have P003Fv370.exe. Running that just comes up with "BIOS update is not supported OS, Unsupported OS or service pack is installed". I was under the impression it was OS independent? Please help, I need to update it to stop it crashing and blue-screening me every half an hour. I've already installed the value added package.

A:Problem updating Tecra M5 BIOS

Hi

The P003Fv370.exe is a package.
Click right on this package and choose unzip here.
Now you should see other files inside this .exe package.

From my knowledge there should be a file which starts the BIOS update.

If it will not work, I guess you need the Toshiba original preinstalled system to update the BIOS.
At the other hand I don?t think that BSOD appears due to old BIOS version.
I guess update will not solve the problem.

Possibly the BSOD appears due to some critical software issue or hardware problems? so would be really interesting to know if the same happens using Toshiba preinstalled system

Hi all, I recently bought Lenovo G500s laptop. Initially it came with DOS. So, i took up partioning the HDD for installing Windows 7. So i changed the boot order to USB drive. Partioned my HDD and went on to install Win 7 through USB Disk. But now it says "Missing Operating System" and i cannot access the system BIOS using the Function keys. I guess, i had also messed up UEFI/Legacy settings in BIOS earlier. But now i cannot access the BIOS at all. Can anyone provide me solution to undo the same or reset the corrupt BIOS. Probably by uploading the G500s BIOS file, so that i can flash it in my laptop. Thanks for the help in advance.

A:Cannot Access Lenovo G500s BIOS.. please help

hi starfire1801,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
During boot-up, if pressing Fn+F2 does allow you to access the BIOS, can you try to:
1. Remove the AC adapter and battery then press the power button for 20secs.
2. Reconnect the AC adapter and press the OneKey Recovery button. If a menu appears, choose BIOS Setup.
3. If you get the same problem, download a free copy of Windows 8 Enterprise (90day trial) and install it on the system. When you get Windows 8 up and running, try accessing theBIOs via the UEFI Firmware Settings.
 
 
Hope this helps

I am in the process of updating my BIOS settings on my laptop (which I was prompted to do by Toshiba's hardware updating service).

I followed all of the instructions provided by the program as it extracted and ran the update. However, the computer began the process of restarting, but has been "logging off" windows (Vista Business) for about an hour now. I'm not sure how to stop the process without causing serious damage to my BIOS, but this doesn't seem normal.

Hi everyone ! I have been Trying to contact support for the longest but for some reason, my SNID and S/N are never recognised... Anyways,I have a AXC-605-EB31 which at base was Windows 8, Intel Core i5 processor 4440, Intel HD Graphics, 1TB Hard Drive, DDR3 Memory. As i booted it for the first time, There was an update right away to Windows 8.1. After an update to Win8.1 a few monts after i got my computer, one of my games started to bug out, and i heard it might have been caused by the game itself being too old for the intel card which was too powerfull for it. In the end, i left the game and never went back to it.I think i did something at the time, but i can't rememeber. I might have tried to downgrade it at some point. As time went by, the Windows10 Update rolled by, so i signed in and got the update on Day 1. I must mention that i got multiple graphic card crashes happening from time to time. But i was expecting a Win10 Update to fix the problem. Later On, Minecraft, for some reason had problem loading textures and i still didn't know why. At the time, came to the Acer Website to try to get some support but couldn't get any (and i didn't know Community existed...) , so i went to Intel to try to fix the problem... to no avail. In the end, i decided to get myself a new graphics card (a Radeon HD 6450) to replace the current buggy one. It fixed the problem... but not the crashes. and here comes the problems i have lately:The Graphics Cards... Read more

Good day One of my clients came to me with a laptop issue She hasa Lenovo G500S Touch laptop. It sometimes freezes at the Lenovo Bios Screen. She is running Windows 7 on it as she does not like Windows 8  Now it does not happen all the time but its frustrating to her as she is not tech minded and she just wants the thing to work.  Sometimes it starts up normally and sometimes it just hangs at the Lenovo screen. I have tried removing the battery (sometimes it works) , tried resesting the bios and disabling USB boot. I have also tried to remove the hard drive and check it in another PC and its fine. When it does start then its fine. it mostly happends when she moves the laptop around or puts it in a bag and takes it out again. There are no bios updates for the Lenovo G500S touch but only for the Lenovo G500S which does not work on the Laptop. Is there anything else we can try as she has spent so much money on this laptop trying to get it repaired as she does photo editing on it and I know the warranty has expired on the laptop and at that stage she did not take out extended warranty. Is the motherboard now defective ? Please advise as I have never seen this in my IT career and now I don't think I must recommend Lenovo PCs to my clients if they are going to give these issues. I have even cleaned the RAM Slots too Looking forward to help here. Regards Roger StaceRSCOMPUTER SERVICE AND RETAIL SOUTH AFRICA.

I your Bios has the option of udma up to 6 then generally the bios supports the Mode! and your problem is that the HDD does not support the mode (cant remember if you said it does).

You are probably using wrong criteria for bios upgrade search.
Try WWW.driverguide,com

You Need the MB's Manufacturers Name or at least the MB Chipset and bios Manufacturers Name as well. go to the Computers muanufacturers website (you probably done that already) and search model.

otherwise Download a System info utility from Tech Spot, I use SiSoft Sandra or AIDA32.. (sandra might cause bluescreen on older machines).. Aida problably will have link direct to bios update site. hope this was of some help

Hey, my laptop has been giving me some pain recently with BSODs when exiting Source games. I've also been experiencing performance drops in these games and in others which were all fine some time ago. Steam support suggesting updating my video and audio drivers (which I did) but they also said I should update my BIOS.

I have never updated my BIOS before and want to ask what and where should I get an update for my laptop, how to apply it and things I should be careful about. Also, would this void my warranty?

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742ZG

Motherboard Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series

A:Need help updating BIOS

Hey, first thing you need to do is type msinfo32 in the Start button search/run box. In the window that opens, look up the field Bios version/date and tell us what exactly you see there. This tells you the version number and date of the currently installed bios. By knowing this it can be determined whether an update is actually applicable.

Bios updating used to be a dangerous business in the earlier days but with better and more user friendly tools its quite OK, as long as you take certain precautions. However, do remember that no matter you do everything right, theres a very small chance that your mobo can get bricked, so the responsibility is all yours.

Not trying to frighten you, just need to be careful and be prepared.

How do I go about doing this? What's the right .exe to download and run?

A:Updating Bios

 Your laptop with Windows 10 installed has no updates for anything including the BIOS. Only updates for Windows 8x and 7. The latest BIOS version is F.24A I have updated BIOS a number of times but have never come across the installer asking about creating partitions.

Hello

Probably a very naive question but I'm wondering how I can update my BIOS (if an update appears) when my PC doesn't have a floppy (A drive? Most of the accounts I've read on the website for the motherboard (ASUSTek) are confusing and involve copying a file onto a floppy for reboot.

Is there another (simpler) way?

Thanks
 

A:Updating Bios

Most new machines have updaters that run in Windows. If the file needs to installed from DOS, like a floppy, it can be installed from a bootable CD that boots into DOS, like the Win98 Boot CD Image that has had the BIOS files injected into its image.

Hi i have just bought a new laptop as i fried the MoBo in my last one which i bought in the early days of Vista, not realising what system requirements were for Vista i landed up with a very under resourced in the hardware dept. laptop and i am shure my constant tinkering with the hardware caused the death of it. Which brings me to my query (now that i am overly paranoid about tinkering with hardware) i have been researching and have found there is very mixed opinion on applying Bios updates and was wondering what people here thoughts are? I have two pending Bios updates 1st addresses better support for SP2 and the 2nd improves system performance & LCD panel brightness.
and if i apply these updates do i need to do both updates or just apply the current one, any opinions would be greatfully received.

A:Updating the BIOS

Bios updates are mutually exclusive (ie, you can only have one installed). I believe that most bios updates are cumulative so if you choose the newest one you should get both of these issues addressed.

I recently put in a new motherboard, a new cpu, and new ram. the computer POST is fine but when it gets to the load windows screen, it just reboots. there is no error, just flashes to a blue screen, then restarts the computer and when it restarts it comes to the screen asking me to choose between restarting in last known good configuration, or in 3 different safe mode options. all of them just repete the process. i tried reinstalling the windows from the boot cd and it reinstalled it fine with no errors, but when it restarts the computer it still wont get passed the load screen. Someone sugested that maybe i have to update my BIOS becase of the new motherboard and new cpu. can someone please explain why that might be, what the symtems are of needing a BIOS update, and why it would help me? im just looking for some clarification before i run such a risky procedure. thank you, kevin

Hi,
its a bit lengthy and might not seem a really general question; but I guess Im only asking for basic understanding here:

Im occasionally getting the error 13 :
: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

I thought I would do a bios update. I googled it and found this,
when I go to the manufacturer website (here) , I cant see any batch file that the manual mentions, instead there is exe files to updating the version of bios. when i download and run them, I get the error saying that the file didnt install properly and if i want to redo it with the recommended setting. I tried checking the version of the bios externally with a software and it seemed its still the previous version. I tried reinstalling the update using the new settings, same old same old.
note: in the sony website it says:
This BIOS update must be installed before upgrading to Microsoft? Windows Vista? operating system. ( the computer was shipped in xp)
I have missed it.
anything I can do?

cheers,
Shahab

Question,
I am upgrading my system from Windows 98 to XP Pro, Full (clean) install. I plan on wiping everything out on the hard drive and start from scratch. Is it necessary to update the BIOS, and if so, where do I find the update? The computer I am upgrading was put together by a local person and he is no longer around, so there is no manufacturer's website to go to and I am not for sure who made the motherboard.
 

A:Updating BIOS

It is a good idea to run the Compatibility wizard on the XP Disc prior to installing . . it will tell you what hardware and software is compatible. ( Insert the XP disc while the system is on and choose "Check for Compatibility" )

I like to update to the newest BIOS when I Upgrade a pc to XP, but it is not a exercize to be undertaken lightly . . I use a UPS to prevent a power loss from converting the machine into a trotline weight . .

You can download and run the Belarc Advisor or Everest to find out what MotherBoard you have ( and a lot of other details about the system as well )

Good luck . .

I am thinking of upgrading my pc by putting an Intel E8200 cpu with an ASUS P5E x38.

Im just wondering if this is as straightforward as I think because I read somewhere that most of the x38 motherboards are not updated for the latest E8+ cpu`s.

If this is so, does anyone know how to resolve this problem?
