B590 - Is the latest BIOS OK for HM77?

Q: B590 - Is the latest BIOS OK for HM77?

Hello everyone! I have recently ungraded the motherboard of my B590 to HM77 so that I could use it with an Iintel core i5. My question is, is the latest BIOS for Lenovo B590 for both versions of these laptops? I mean, does it support HM77 chip? The current BIOS of the board is very old (2013) and Windows won't switch to Nvida GPU despite it's presense in the device mangager. Thanks and I really appreacite your support!

Preferred Solution: B590 - Is the latest BIOS OK for HM77?

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'm not clear on whether you have a B90 or a B590. It would be helpful to get the full model number (from where the serial number is), and a screenshot of a 'sys info'. Thx.

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

I have a huge problem with a B590 Notebook: I replaced the harddisk for a test installation of windows 10. This was already quite a pain in the youknowwhat, since it didn't want to boot from USB-stick. I was able to solve that by changing a boot-option in the BIOS to 'legacy' and changing the boot-order and could continue with the windows 10-installation. Then I wanted to reinstall the old harddrive and run the original windows 8 again. Unfortunately the computer doesn't seem to recognize the original harddrive a boot-device anymore. Instead it seems to search for a boot-device on the network (in an endless loop).The problem now is, that I can't access the BIOS anymore. Pressing F1 as stated on the boot screen has no effect (just like pressing F2, F10, F12, ESC, Enter, AnyKey).My next idea was entering the BIOS from the still running windows 10 installation (By pressing Shift+Restartbutton.) Strangely there is no 'UEFI Firmware settings'-option So how can I enter the BIOS to check the boot-settings/order on this notebook? Thanks!

I'm on a fresh install of 64-bit windows 8.1, but the BIOS installer gives the following error message: "Your machine does not match with this BIOS. Update process will be halted." Why on earth is this? I googled the error message but this only seems to be a problem with people trying to upgrade the BIOS from win 10... but I'm definitely on 8.1, it even says Windows 8.1 Build 9600 in the corner. The only modification I made is that I upgraded the ram to 8 GB (from 4 GB), but the BIOS update fails even if I take the extra stick out.

Greetings!

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

A:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

Hi I have changed boot order and also I have disabled UEFI in order to install linux on other partition(not done yet). as I always do on other laptops. But now after changing to legacy mode I cannot access BIOS anymore. I got pxe-e61 error. OK so I insert USB linux drive and it is working properly with live boot.  But I realy need to boot Windows, but it is not possible becoŠuse of UEFI being turnd off. Also It is not possible to access bios, because BIOS was accessed from recovery windows menu, whitch doesnt load anymore. Also when it is booting up (lenovo logo) I press esc (no other keys are workind) which open menu where I "can" boot to BIOS. So I press F1 menu dissapears but I end up with same PXE-E61 error. Any advice how to enter BIOS and change it back to UEFI mode ? thanks

I hope you meant to say Lenovo B590, because I cannot find any reference to a Lenovo G590 Not sure why, but others have reported that to regain access to the BIOS, you have to do the following. remove the battery and power, then remove the back panel.remove the BIOS battery.    See page 44, 45 and 52 of the Hardware Maintenance Manualleave it for a couple of minutes (I would say 5 minutes or more).replace the BIOS battery and the cover, then the battery and then the powerBoot up and use F1 / F2 to go into the bios Hardware Maintenance Manual Lenovo B590https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/b590_hmm_en.pdf I hope it works for you too. Good Luck,

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-P61-S3 (rev. 2.0)

Ive managed to update/flash (its the same thing?) my bios from F5 to F7 version within an utility provided by motherboard manufacturer called @BIOS ( you can find it on the same support and download section ). I had 3 options to update: from server, file or drive and I choosed the 1st one. The latest F8 version is no longer BETA but I couldnt upgrade to it at least not from server and I think I really need this since its more than half an year ahead of the previous.

However I downloaded the F8 files from manufacturer page , unpacked them and I had 3 files : one windows BATCH file "autoexec"
one aplication "Efiflash" and the F8 file p62s3.f8( I guess I need to put it on a flash drive ) .While atempting to run the 1st one I got the unsupported 16-bit aplication, with Efiflash something similar " this app cant run on this pc" message from windows 8.
So should I put them on a flash drive and then from bios menu to enter Q-flash and select update from drive or maybe doing the same witht hat utility I mentioned above? I have a Sandisk cruzer blade 16 gb.Is this good for this operation?

A:Cant upgrade to the latest BIOS

efiflash is a DOS utility. You'd want to prepare a bootable DOS USB drive and run it from that.

I'm not familiar with Qflash, but if it's equivalent to Asus' EZ Flash, that would be the simpler way to do it. I wonder whether you'd need to add the right file extension to the actual BIOS file. (For most Asus boards, the extension is .rom, but for some it's .cap.)

I'd suggest that that you read the manual, but I don't see anything about BIOS updates in the downloadable version. Shame.

This is indeed a known issue and has been reported here before. It seems like they were too quick to release this BIOS version.
Apparently tech support is aware about this since they recommended me to roll back to the previous version while on the phone as well. I take it this means they are looking into it and can expect another BIOS update soon(ish).

Hi there,

This is something I've seen for the first time: latest BIOS version (that, by chance, I use) disappears from site.

A few months ago I updated the BIOS (HP Insyde) to the latest version: site mentioned this is version F.26 and all went well.
Checked BIOS and System Info: yep is F.26 alright.
I have it backuped. Was released in April - May.

There are no issues at all so far but HP seems to have reverted back to version F.24 as the latest one on the website.
I don't think it's possible to revert back the update because it was mentioned in the change-log but to me this version is stable.

This is the same site and laptop model.
Notice sp60606 for F.24 while the F.26 is called sp61457...

I wonder why they removed it...
Any ideas on this one? Anyone else seen this or similar on their machines?

Well, since all functions normally I'll keep this F.26 version and check their site regularly just in case.

Thanks

A:BIOS latest version

Maybe they pulled it because of this discovered issue when certain hardware configurations were trying (unsuccessfully) to update to F.26:

I flashed my bios to try to fix a problem with the display backlight.  I think I flashed the wrong file (i.e. for a different model computer), and now my computer will not recognise any boot media.  So I am trying to recover using the method posted here.  My question is, I got the most recent bios flash from the HP support webpage, but it is a .exe file (sp70486.exe).  The recovery method requires the actual ROM.  How can I either get the ROM out of the .exe file, or where can I download the ROM? PS the Pavilion 23-F269 has a AAHD3-AT motherboard. Or should I just buy a new BIOS chip from ebay?

A:Getting the latest BIOS ROM file

Hi I downloaded sp70486.exe and opened it with 7 zip. 3 files inside. The batch file called 'flash.bat' contains the following. mountvol z: /sdel z:\efi\hp\bios\current\*.bincopy .\AK2_8011.bin z:\efi\hp\bios\currentmountvol z: /dsafuwin AK2_8011.bin /p /b /n /r /k /reboot  Also in the zip file are 2 files "safuwin.exe" and "AK2_8011.bin", so I copied the .bin into another directory so it could be used elsewhere. I hope this helps, obviously I cant run or attach such files here, but I believe you can achieve what you want quite easily.  =======================================================================DetailsThis package provides an update to the HP Consumer Desktop PC BIOSUpdate (ROM Family 2AF8) for the supported desktop models andsupported operating systems.Details:-  This package provides an update to the HP Consumer Desktop PC BIOS (ROM Family 2AF8) for supported models running a supported operating system File name: sp70486.exe   Release details  Released: Jan 26, 2015  Version 80.11 Rev.AFix and enhancementsImproved security of UEFI code and variables.

Hi: Yes, F.34 is the latest BIOS version and if you have that installed, good. I am going to save you from having to strip your notebook for parts and tossing it in the trash if you try to flash the BIOS after you installed Windows 7. DON'T FLASH THE BIOS IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED WINDOWS 7. There will be a 100% chance of totally bricking your notebook if you do. Below is the link to the support and driver page for your specific notebook model. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3717145&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=228&query=KW097EA&sw_lang=&tool= As long as the BIOS in your PC is at F.27 or newer, there is no reason that you can't install 4 GB of memory in your notebook right now. I have a dv6810us with the same hardware as yours and I am running W7 64 bit with 4 GB of memory (2 x 2GB of PC2-6400), and it works just fine. If you ever need to flash the BIOS (which you shouldn't ever need to), you will need to reinstall Vista, flash it, and reinstall W7.

Right... So here I am trying to perform miracles with a XFX/NVidia board again. I'm running out of hair to pull out, but I can't afford to get another one right now.

I'm sure the whole world knows that XFX and NVidia aren't buddies anymore, and I know that XFX skimped on the processor TDP ratings to 'save money', but I'm not sure if this problem is a faulty BIOS from XFX or if my chip is failing.. Anybody else still running this board? Perhaps someone can give a second opinion here...

Currently I'm running the v1.6 BIOS, the latest is v1.7. My PC doesn't have any problems with 1.6, I was just trying to see if I could get a Phenom II 740 BE to work on this board. The BIOS flashes without any problems, no errors or warnings or suspicious beeps.. But then the two-digit diagnostic LED on the board goes haywire with 1.7, with 1.6 it shows normal alpha-numeric codes, but on 1.7 the lines are completely mixed up and don't make any legible numbers or letters.

I must admit, other than that, I haven't found any problems.. My 740 BE still didn't work, but I'm not sure if that was also because of the BIOS or not. Has anybody else perhaps tried this BIOS yet...? If not, and you're comfortable with it, could you try it and see? I had no issues flashing back to 1.6 after trying 1.7, so you don't have to worry about being stuck on it if you don't like it...

Only my IDE drives are recognized. I created a support ticket on MOBO site but no response yet. I was wondering if you could send me the 1.6 ISO so I can reflash my system. Thanks.

Hello I would like to ask:I updated my BIOS last night to the latest version. I am on Windows 10, HP Envy x360. I updated it sucessfully and I am not facing any issues as of now. I wasn't facing one before I updated. Everything was going smoothly but I saw in the HP Support Assistant that I have numerous things to update so I clicked it all & updated. When the BIOS finished installing the computer restarted and I continued updating the others (which included the BIOS internal) but in the middle of the update, I stopped it. And it said it's not applicable anymore. I clicked to update again & the other 3 (there was 4 of them including the BIOS internal) updated succesfully. I even contacted support at that same night to let them do the manual update to give me a peace of mind. The technician said I updated it correctly. But what I read on everyp site on the internet that not to update the BIOS. So I am worrying & scared right now because my laptop might encounter problems that weren't there before the update. I am regretting my decision, I am not a techy person and I don't understand the computer world very well yet I decided to update without knowing first what it was. I am very scared of what might happen because of my carelessness.My questions are:1. Will updating the latest version of the BIOS without any problems in the hardware or anything (it was running smoothly, I just recently purchased it) harm the laptop or give problems to the laptop?2. What can I do to... Read more

To all with an 860-019 desktop. Don't install the latest bios update. Mine would not install update. Chatted with tech support (first mistake) they told me they would install update (second mistake). I allowed Joyce in Bangladesh (doubt that is really her name) to try and update (third mistake)Now I have an inoperative pc. Can't even get into Windows. Just a set up screen that says manufacturing program is in unlock mode. I did manage to get into the bios set up a couple of times. It no longer has any info on the system such as model, SKU, serial number etc. So I can even do a system restore.So tech support did an amazing job giving me a 1500 dollar paper weight. I did talk to a senior person and got the standard reply if we will send a box and you send it for repair.So an HP tech ruins my pc and now they expect me to send it off to be fixed. This is not the first one they have done this too. The last one required a new mother board. So I asked if they could just send the mother board and I would change it out. Funny thing I was told they don't have one. So how are they going to fix it in the promised 10 days with out the parts. It would be much faster for me to change it. Then funny enough they offered for me to buy a new mother board and they would reimburse me. Funny they don't have one to send but they have one for me to buy?Now as this pc that my daughter uses for university studies is dead and I am forced to buy another one so my daughter can do her school work.

A:Don't install latest bios will brick your pc

Sorry to hear of this unfortunate event with your new PC. A BIOS update is something I always reommend to consider the risks vs any enhancement it offers. In other words, if the machine is functioning well why risk it. I have seen too many go awry. Double warning  when a BIOS update balks on installing- never try to force it. I do understand the irritation when supposedly there is an update but it fails and an owner feels they must address it... Have you tried a BIOS rollback to revert to earlier version? This works in some-not all- cases. 1-Immediately after powering on start tapping the Esc key.2-When the menu appears, tap F2 for System Diagnostics.3-In the list of items will be Firmware Management.Use the arrow key to move down & highlight it.Press Enter key.4-You should see a Rollback BIOS option.Use arrow key again to highlight and press Enter key.

Yes, folks I actually have an XP Laptop with a maximum 768K memory capacity!  1.8Ghz but only 768K Memory, how retarded!!!

I have an M55 8810 with a Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86 GHz CPU. The latest bios flash for my machine is dated January 09. There is a lot of information concerning bug fixes, etc. Is there any additional CPU support for the motherboard? I'm currently relying on the parts list for the model and motherboard as a guide for upgrades. Thanks.

A:lenovo g580 20150 latest bios.

My rule of thumb with BIOS updates is "if it is not broke, do not try to fix it" because there is always an inherent risk that a BIOS update can fail, and if so, leave  the system bricked (dead) requirnig a new motherboard, and there does not appear to be anything in the latest updates readme.txt other than specific fixes for Windows 8.1... So I would hold off. Summary of changes
==================
General Information:
Fixed:
1. Modified small number keys (such as the key U, I, O°≠) matrix for win8. Cheers,
