Preferred Solution: Newest B490/B590 BIOS update not working

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.)

Hello
Same issue here,I hoped that the bios upgrade should be solve the problem, but the "official" bios isn't working, nicely done again.
I need to renew my battery, thirdparty isn't available due to lenovo lockout ... right, I've bought a genuine lenovo but this isn't working too ... nicely done

A:My Laptop B490 not booting after bios update

hi sathish291
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. Power down the machine, remove the AC adapter and battery.
2. Hold the power button for 30secs and reconnect the AC adapter only then turn the computer ON.
 
If the machine still doesn't power up normally and boot into WIndows then it's likely that something went wrong (could be a bad BIOS flash or an internal component might have gone defective during or after the BIOS update). In this case, you may need to contact lenovo on how to go about getting the unit serviced.

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'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.

Hello guys!                   This is Kamesh. And I own a Lenovo B490 (20205) laptop that was provided by Govt. of TN. I had the B460 before. I tried to update the correct BIOS on B460 that was downloaded from Lenovo IN site. And it worked perfectly without any problem. The Govt. of TN logo disappeared and the normal Lenovo Logo appeared on B460. So this is fine. Now that I have the B490 and I tried the same. I downloaded the BIOS update from Lenovo IN site by inputting my Laptop serial number and it showed my laptop as Lenovo B490 which is correct. So, I saw that the BIOS update was available. I decided to download and install it. I had Windows 10 64 bit in my Laptop. I installed it and I started the BIOS update it showed me the usual warnings such as Connect AC adapter. I did all the things (I've previous experience of updating the BIOSes). So, it started to flashing the BIOS and after some time the laptop didn't turn on. Found out that the BIOS didn't post.

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!

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!

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 becoáuse 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,

the problem is i can't see the newest emojis people are posting on facebook.
 
i don't rely use them my self but a lot of people seem to like to use emojis instead of actual words and it makes it hard to understand what they are saying when half of each of their sentences are just squares.
 
at first i thought it might be a facebook issue
but after some testing and such i discovered that i couldn't see the emojis on any website...
 
this lead me to a chrome adon that did allow me to see about half of them.... but not all of them... and the adon used its own custom looking emojis that were really big and ugly.

I was just wondering if anyone else was having problems with McAfee's latest virus def update? I personally use Norton, but at work (tech support) we've been getting alot of calls from people that have updated to the latest McAfee upgrade, and their computer would work fine for about a week, and then the system would get stuck at the Windows 98 bootup splash screen. This only seems to affect Windows 98, and like I said, seems to happen about a week after the update. The only way that I've figured out to fix the problem is to rename the autoexec.bat and config.sys files and it boots right up. The main two things I was wondering about was if anyone else was experiencing this and if anyone knew what was causing this problem in the McAfee update?

Yesterday, I suddenly begin getting virus alerts with AVG Free edition. It only happens when I go to Amazon.com. The alerts petain to HTML Framer in the temp files as far as I can tell.

I decide to check on another computer we have to make sure if it was only on my business computer. It was on the family one as well. Then I remembered that I just updated AVG on it.....thus the business automatically updates....they both had been updated that day and now they both alert to Virus Found: HTML/Framer.

I believe it is a flawed up date, being that it only on Amazon and not other sites for our computers. Any thoughts? Or does some one know how to contact them? The AVG Free Edition offers no contact point to tell them of this possible False/Postive alert.

Last week there was one of those install new update popups where you're allowed to wait another 4 hours before it pops up.

My problem is after last weeks update my computer slowed down heavily, and I cannot see anyway to fix it. I have checked core temperature, gpu temperature and even removed all dust from the inside of my cabinet.

Under task manager it looks perfectly normal (CPU usage at 5% max.) but when I try to close it, it goes "not responding" like everything else does when I try to close it.
Also when I try to turn on my computer it boots normally, but after I log onto my account on the computer, all I see is a black screen with the cursor.

Currently it is impossible to open any webbrowers or any programs / games.

I have (by luck) made a full system scan and it didn't find any virusses or spyware. (I use Avira)

In few words... This problem came with the newest Windows 7 update... Before that I didn't run into any problems at all.

Many regards and thanks in advance.

Celthric

PS: I use Windows 7 64 bit Home edition.

It may be worth looking at this, not sure if it's definitely your problem but it's possible.

I normally use Google Chrome but have been using Firefox for the last few days because some of the facebook games I play run better with Firefox. It worked okay at first but suddenly Adobe Flash 11.5 keeps crashing every 5 seconds. Windows solutions is telling me that my data execution program security is shutting it down and I followed the instructions to disable DEP for adobe flash but it won't let me. I tried using an older version of Flash but then I'm unable to play certain games. If I try to play these games on Chrome then I have problems with shockwave.

A:Please Help!! Newest Adobe Flash Update crashing in Firefox

Hi:

I'm not sure what you mean by that?? Perhaps you could tell us a bit more about what happened??? Are you referring to an auto-update to a newer program version???

However, most Fx problems originate in the user's profile (extensions, corruption etc.), not the program itself.
Rolling back program versions can seriously mess up your profile, making things worse, not better.

Rather, there are some procedures to troubleshoot, as suggested here:

Mozilla Safe Mode
Standard Diagnostic - Firefox
Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems

Hope this helps,

I recently purchased a T450s.  It shipped with BIOS versoin 1.18.  I downloaded and ran the application to upgrade the BIOS to version 1.18, but it appears the new version is not being applied.  My system still shows BIOS version 1.17. What could be the cause of this issue?

A:T450s BIOS Update to 1.18 not working

HiHave you read the BIOS upgrade related readme.txt file?There are several important requisitions:- Lenovo recommends to install the USB 3.0 driver for Windows (Version 1.4.0.225 or higher) prior to updating the BIOS. Because the BIOS requires the modification in the USB 3.0 driver to fix USB 3.0 related issues.- You need an AC adapter and a charged battery pack.- Remove the Power-on password prior to updating the UEFI BIOS in the remote deployment environments.- Make sure to be logged on with an administrator account on the target computer.- Make sure the AC adapter is firmly connected to the target computer.

A:Bios update not working on Satellite Pro M70-275

Hi

Is BIOS update necessary? Or what is the intention to update the BIOS?
Usually if you have no serious problems, the BIOS update isn?t essential

Regarding the sound:
You can solve the problem in Windows XP installing KB888111 and KB835221 hotfix before installing sound driver.

Hello. So HP Support Assistant gave me a notification to update my BIOS, which I did and it says it was successful, but after finishing and restarting, the Support Assistant keeps giving me the same notification saying that my BIOS needs to be updated. I've done it like 3 times and it always says "Update Complete", but after starting up the laptop again, I get the same notification. What's wrong with it?











Solved!

I have linux installed on my HP laptop and I want to update the bios. According to all the docs I have read I should be able to run the bios update utility from a different windows 10 computer and create a bios update USB drive. I went to my laptops support page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-spectre-13-4000-x360-convertible-pc/7527520/mode... I downloaded the BIOS update from here: http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp77501-78000/sp77784.exe Ran it on a different windows 10 laptop to create the USB, but when I run the installer nothing happens. This process is detailed in this doc which says at some point I should be asked whether I want to create a USB: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00042629
