T450 BIOS version 1.27 Lenovo Diagnostics does not start

Q: T450 BIOS version 1.27 Lenovo Diagnostics does not start

I see in the change log that they added a new version of the Lenovo Diagnostics in the 1.27 version of the BIOS for the T450 (20BV0005US). The problem is, when you press F10 on boot up, rather than start the Lenovo Diagnostics like it is supposed to, the screen flashes a couple of times and the computer reboots. Likewise, if you press F12 on boot up, Tab over to the applications menu, arrow down to Lenovo Diagnostics, and press Enter, the screen flashes a couple of times and the computer reboots. I have attempted to address this by feedback in the software and drivers downloads section, on a feedback from a motherboard replacement, and by calling in to Lenovo after the motherboard was replaced, and have never had this issue solved.

Hi, I have googled this and searched the forum but not found an answer. On closing the T450 lid which puts the machine into sleep the machine is now playing the 'device connected' sound. On opening the lid which resumes the machine from sleep, it is playing the 'device disconnected' sound. I have tried changing the power settings to 'Do Nothing' when the lid is closed, and it still makes the notification sounds. Equally, if you put the machine into sleep using Windows (not closing the lid) it does not make the notification sounds. This started a few weeks ago - perhaps since the last Windows 10 Update or the recent Lenovo Bios updates. I know this is not something specific to this machine as I own two T450s and both are displaying the same behaviour. I have tried rebooting, turning notification sounds off for various functions, etc. Any help appreciated as it is quite annoying! Thanks.

Hello, I'm the process of trying to de-brick this EliteBook 8640p that was working just yesterday, but I decided it was time for a re-format.  I went into the BIOS settings and noticed an option called 'Safe Erase'... and I decided to perform it. After the process was complete, understandably there was no OS found. The next step (I thought) was to add bootable media (DVD-ROM or Flash Drive, I tried both) to install a new OS. After tweaking the 'Legacy Boot' settings by putting USB Flash Drive at the top, I rebooted -- and it didn't load from the removable media. I tried checking the BIOS settings again, but every time I press ESC, F9, etc. during the POST, it redirects me to 'system diagnostics', which has been extremely unhelpful since all it offers me is a few diagnostic scans (they all pass, by the way). I'm not ever able to get back to the BIOS settings. This would be day 2 of my adventure, yesterday I tried updating/reinstalling the BIOS using a Flash Drive, but the utilities provided by HP all crashed when they were about to create the BIOS update drive. I tried moving basically every .bin file I could find (there isn't a single Phoneix Bios file that I could find) onto a freshly-formatted (FAT32, 4MB block size, 2 GB capacity) Flash Drive. Booting normally with the flash drive in keeps bringing me back to the 'system diagnostics' screen, over and over again. Something quite odd happens when I try initiating the BIOS recovery routine with Win + B -- when ...

I have an SSD installed rather than an HDD.  I uninstalled the Lenovo Active Protection software and there is no trace of the app existing in the Windows registry.  Yet when the X250 boots just after the BIOS POST screen and before Windows starts I see a one line text message reading "Active Protection Sensor Diagnostics Start" for about one second.  What is this?  It looks like there is still some component of the "airbag" system still running.  Do I need to do something else to completely remove it?  Or is this just a message from the system board that cannot be controlled?  I see no options related to it in the BIOS.

Hello,  I am having an issue with my laptop shutting down unexpectedly from either gaming or Internet surfing. These shutdowns can occur at random times and can happen twice in one day. I recently sent my computer in for a repair under my warranty and the issue still have not been fixed. I have a feeling something is not right with the latest BIOS version for my computer but I am not a computer expert and would appreciate any help in the matter.  I have updated most of my drivers and ran a windows update diagnostic. I've checked the Event Viewer which revealed a bunch of "kernal" errors or critical notifications from every shutdown. I am not sure if I should downgrade to a previous BIOS version to fix the issue.  I'm also not sure if its a power issue since the shutdowns have happened when the computer is running on battery without the power adapter plugged in. I also use a razor naga mouse if that has any relevance.

We have two new Lenovo thinkpad P71, both identical. One of them started to have boot up issue (takes about 2.5 minutes for the first boot up of the day, then any restart during that day will be fine) So, I have been trying to resolve this issue this past couple of days without success. However, I found out that the BIOS version were different on both machine. Both machine requested to update the BIOS after the initial setup. One of them I updated but the other I didn't. The Laptop with the updated BIOS has the version 1.17 (which is odd since the latest version on Lenovo website is 1.16) https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-... The laptop that was not updated has the version 1.15 and it does not have the long boot up time issue. So I was wondering if it was normal to have version 1.17? Also, is it possible and should I go back to version 1.15? Any help / tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, the changelog of the BIOS 1.29 states that it contains an update of the CPU microcode.Afetr I upgraded successfully to that new BIOS, I've been surprised to notice that the microcode wasn't updated.Booting on lunix, I can see that the CPU is still running the old revision 0x24 of the microcode: [ 3.081408] microcode: sig=0x306d4, pf=0x40, revision=0x24
[ 3.081446] microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.2. I expected to find the revision 0x25 which was released by intel several months ago (see: http://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs/non-free/i/intel-microcode/intel-microcode_3.201705...) By comparing the line below extracted from that link to the boot message I reported above, you can verify the CPU signature and the processor flag mask associated to that microcode update perfectly match my CPU. sig 0x000306d4, pf_mask 0xc0, 2017-01-27, rev 0x0025, size 17408 So I wonder why that micocode update was not included in the BIOS 1.29.Is it a mistake ? or did Lenovo have a good reason to omit it ?

When booting my laptop, and when the message appears "Press enter to acces the BIOS", even if I press it a lot of times, F12, F9, F18, Fn combined or everything you can imagine, I CAN NOT GO THROUGH THE BIOS. This is  FUNDAMENTAL error that can not happen..

Finally gave into the Lenovo nagging and updated the BIOS on my E560 - big mistake. It went through and installed fine, no issues with failures, etc (well none that appeared on the screen). The laptop restarted fine, it went through and updated the BIOS, restarted one final time and ...... nothing. At present I have popped the battery and the power, reset the unit (press pwr button for 15sec etc), removed all peripherals, etc, etc, googled for similar happenings and so no matter what I have done, the laptop is as dead as a brick. I have the small red power light on but that's about it. Nothing appears on the screen (so can't see UEFI/BIOS), no fans start and about the only thing that does work is the DVD drive can be opened. It's a relatively new laptop (less than 12 months old so still under warranty) but as a word of caution to other E560 owners - DO NOT INSTALL THE LATEST BIOS UPDATE. Well no unless you want an expensive paper-weight for your desk.

HelloI have some issues with my Y50-70 laptop. For some time I have strange FPS drops while playing games. All runs smoothly but suddenly fps drop to 5-10 for a few seconds, then all goes back to normal. I read that it's a matter of old BIOS version. I tried to update BIOS (2.00 -> 3.03) but id doesn't work. InsydeFlash starts, then I get a prompt about not turning off PC, I click 'ok', then IF flashes some messages about 'erasing and writing new files' and then system reboots as always (without any updates, installs or anything alike). I tried to install BIOS using USB stick, but for that I need iso file. The thing is that on Lenovo support site all iso are literally empty. Just hollow file with nothing inside (yet somehow it weights about 20mb). I cannot find any solution on the internet, as if this problem occured only on my laptop.I'm using Windows 10 64bit and Ubuntu 17.10 (dual-system, combined using grub 2).
