Preferred Solution: Lenovo K450 BIOS Update

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 bought my K450 Desktop a while back on Amazon, and it said that it had bluetooth.  It doesn't seem to be built in, but a bluetooth dongle for the included keyboard and mouse may have been what it was referencing. If this was the case, how can I make the keyboard/mouse bluetooth dongle general purpose so that I can connect my mobile phone to my PC wirelessly? I've tried installing the Lenovo bluetooth drivers, but am told that no bluetooth reciever is connected to my PC. Why can't I make this usb dongle act as general purpose, rather than only working for the keyboard/mouse?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Are you referring to the light on the top panel near the power button?  If so, this is the hard drive indicator light.  This light will flash whenever there is activity with the hard drive.  There is no easy way of disabling it.  I would just cover the light with a small piece of tape.  Black electrical tape would work well.
 
Page #2 of your model's User Guide shows the location of the various lights on your model.  Here is a link to that guide for your reference....

I have been chasing an issue with my new Lenovo K450 frequently crashing (6-8 times daily) with random errors displayed on the BSOD.

Lenovo have been zero help thus far after having me re-install Windows from scratch and performing all updates.

I have dozens of minidump files stored.

If anyone here can have a look at the included SF DIAG TOOL info and offer assistance, I would be very thankful.

Hi

Please try the below steps.

1. Uninstall GenesysLogic GeneStor.

This driver seems to be directly blamed in the last crash dump.


Code:
BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff8027f2aebe7, fffff88005fc07c8, fffff88005fc0000}
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for GeneStor.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for GeneStor.sys
Probably caused by : GeneStor.sys ( GeneStor+790b )


After uninstalling the driver, disconnect the device from USB port.

2. Update TeamViewer.


Code:

teamviewervpn.sys Thu Dec 13 14:52:09 2007 (4760F9C1)
TeamViewerVPN Network Adapter


Update it from TeamViewer - Free Remote Access and Remote Desktop Sharing over the Internet

3. Update LAN and Wireless LAN drivers.

Wireless LAN - http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/...p/h1100585.exe

LAN - Realtek

hello,

i just bought this factory refurbished Lenovo K450 desktop i5 4th gen quad core 3.0ghz, 8gb ram, 1tb seagate 7200rpm. it came preloaded with Win8, which not only do i hate, but not all of the software i use is compatible. I make music, edit video and do graphic design, so i use programs like Cubase, Reason, Premier, Vegas, Adobe CS. I am on a seriously tight budget as a full time college student on financial aid and father of 2, so the price for the specs on this refurb was a great deal for me. 500 bucks on ebay.

I have been quite savvy with computers for well over 15 years now. mostly Mac, but for economic reasons i recently made the switch to windows and i have not regretted it. XP and 7 have been good to me thus far. However, I have finally run into something that has seriously stumped me. That is downgrading from 8 to 7.

I am unsure exactly how to set the BIOS. And I'm not sure, do i boot the dvd as legacy or uefi? I know I have to disable secure boot. and set bot mode to legacy right? what else am I overlooking? I keep getting error code 0x80070570. I have to figure out soon whether it is something I'm doing wrong or something wrong with the machine so that i can return it to the seller within 30 days. He swears there is nothing wrong with it and i did run a lot of diagnostics and found it passed in every which way. I do get a blue screen crash that says memory_management.

someone please point me in the right direction. Lenovo won't help me... Read more

Well, well... i just figured out how to press f10 and run a lenovo diagnostic. the memory failed! i just emailed the seller and let him know he has a few options. send me new ram, pay the shipping to send it back for him to fix it, exchange it or issue a full refund. thanks anyway y'all. i knew i know what i'm doing. i've been messing with computers for far too long to have been going this crazy simply installing an os!!!

Bought a brand new Lenovo K450 that came with Windows 8. I installed Windows 7 Pro (64) on it end of August. Friend came into town a couple days after that, downloaded fourteen tool bars and more viruses than I can care to count. I did a relatively good job of cleaning it, but keep getting (kept) virus alerts. My system is running slow. Very slow. I've run AVG and AdAware as well as Malwarebytes... I even ran HiJack this but it's been so long, I couldn't remember what was good and what was bad. The log file was VERY long so I just figured... it's time to reinstall windows.

I dont have an install disk from Lenovo. It was a factory refurb with the partition containing all the drivers and Windows 8 (which we all hate). I had to download the individual drivers from Lenovo and install them when I did a fresh install... it was a PITA, but the system is 'running'.

Here's the TLDR summation:

Getting 800B0100 error when trying to install 976932... it's the 8mb SP1 update that others have had issues with. My system does NOT have SP1 installed - I know this because its not listed for one and two, trying to install IE11, gives me the dreaded 'you need SP1' error message.

So what have I done?

Disabled AVG for the time being (its the only thing installed besides Dropbox desktop client).
I've run OldTimers temp file delete tool
Downloaded the Hotfix tool and ran that. It's not (just now) telling me there is more than an 8mb file to install... that there is a 73.6mb - 892.6mb updat... Read more

Oh yeah... I also downloaded, after the first failed attempt for a clean install, the ISO for Windows 7 that comes with the SP built into it. I downloaded th Windows 7 USB Download tool... it copied fine, but the final product, twice, said, 'cannot make this drive bootable'.

The disk I am using is an ISO image from a few years ago without the SP on it.

I got half way through the manul update and now it's just frozen on about 55%, just sitting there for the last ten minutes. Going to try it again. If that doesn't work - I'm throwing my computer out and starting over. SMDH

I just purchased IdeaCentre K450 from Bestbuy.In addition I also purchased 2 Seagate 3TB Backup Plus USB drives. All three USB drives were plugged in to the K450.When the Windows Updates automatically rebooted the PC, it got stuck on the Lenovo BIOS logo.It will not bypass it until I remove or power down all the USB drives that attached to it. I did check the BIOS and make sure that it's not trying to boot from USB. I made the Local Hard Disk as the number 1 priority when booting. I don't know what is going on. I think Lenovo will have to update the BIOS. SInce it's a newer product, my guess is I will have to wait for a little bit. I called the support line and they have no clue what is going on. They only advise is to post it in the forum and see if anyone else has the same issue. *no comment* I guess this is a weird one because when I tested by plugging in an "EMPTY" 4GB USB jump drive, it will boot just fine.I'm not sure if it's because the Seagate Backup Plus was a 3TB drives or it has "certain" content inside the jump drive. If any fellow K450 users has the same issue, please post it here so the Lenovo "engineer" be able to see that there's an issue out there. Thank you.

Hi iamxcpx, welcome to the forums,
 
what you have experienced is not uncommon with any type of computer from notebook through to server, regardless of the boot disc being set as item 1 in the list, sometimes they just want to search everything available for boot instructions; depending on the quantity of information on the external discs it can sometimes take a little while.
 
I would suggest totally excluding the drives, or better all usb devices, from the boot order.  The following picture is of another systems BIOS, but hopefully illustrates what I mean.

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.

hi mahdhir2005,
 
Im sorry to hear that.
 
  I would suggest you call the Lenovo Technical Team regarding the Issue. If it is the BIOS that's causing the issue then there maybe no source or option to have it fixed without they're help or service.
 
  If the BIOS software you downloaded was from a legit Lenovo Site and correct model, then I think It will be ok to Just report them what happened and ask for possible option.
 
Hope this helped
Thanks!

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.

When I look up your system on the support page I see quite a few updates, drivers and such that support windows 8.1 and 10.  If you are looking for a BIOS update or patch, those are usually OS neutral and are applied with either a BIOS utility or patcher that works in DOS mode and some can use a windows based utility.
 
Are you trying to use a BIOS update to fix an issue or just get the "latest and greatest" for your computer?  Mostly I would not recommend updating your BIOS unless it is absolutely neccessary to fix a troublesome issue or problem with hardware.

Hi! I updated my Lenovo T430u's BIOS from version 2.11 to 2.13 this morning and everything is slow since. I mean: sloooow. I had a functionnal dual boot Windows 10/Linux Mint but now Linux Mint takes around 3 minutes to boot. It took 25 seconds before. I figured it was related to the disk so I did the memory and disk diagnostics but everything seems ok. Even booting from USB/DVD is slow. I tried restoring default settings from BIOS, putting the battery in maintenance mode, removing the battery and even disconnecting the CMOS backup battery for an hour. I then tried to downgrade the BIOS but it does not seem like an option. This would probably fix my problem since everything was ok at version 2.11.I am really out of solution here! Please help, my computer is not usable in this state :/ Julien

A:Lenovo V570 bios update crash

I found this procedure on a lenovo forum. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. If not, it is not worth putting money into fixing this laptop.. New ones are pretty cheap and having a new mb installed in this one will cost more than a new laptop.

BTW the spelling errors are from the forum NOT mine.

First of all I want to say that I am extremely disappointed with the experience I had with my Lenovo. After I bought it I found out that Lenovo, for some reason, disabled the Turbo Boost option of the CPU. I tried to fix it by entering the BIOS but the options there were limited, so I decided to update the BIOS. I downloaded the BIOS update for 64-bit windows(i am running windows 8 which is compatible with the said update utillity). I ran the .exe and followed all the instructions (did not shut-down restart or anything my computer). After installing it automatically restarted and a Lenovo logo prompted on the screen followed by ">>Start PXE over IPv6, Press [ESC] to EXIT..." after that "EFI Network 0 for IPv6(numbers and letters) boot failed". Then ">>Start PXE over IPv4" which failed and a blue box poped saying "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery Media and Hit any ket then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". Pressed ok and got me to Boot Manager screen. Boot option Menu had only EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and EFI Network 0 for IPv4". What should I do?Note that I tried to start up both with and without the ethernet cable in.

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.

My Windows 10 N22 does not output audio to my digital TV when connected with an HDMI cable. I have tried it on several TV's with the same result. I get video, but the audio comes from the laptop speakers. The TV is not even available to select as a Playback Device in Sounds, only the speakers show up. I have tried to udate the BIOS, as the latest BIOS is supposed to resolve an HDMI audio issue.  However, when I try to update it, I get a message that reads "ERROR 180 - BIOS part numbers do not match!" My current BIOS version is 0YCN14WW.

Hello! My wifi stoped working and I updated all drivers and it didn't work. Then for the last thing I've updated the bios from 9acn28ww to 9acn32ww from the site. It went OK, but now that I try to acess the setup I'm prompted by a system password I didn't set earlier, it was empty. It came with Windows 8 installed, but I was using Windows 7 with MBR partition and now I can't configure to Legacy and nothing... Is there any default password like "password" ? Thanks in advance!

Also removing the mobo battery didnt help, after its says that it has been reseted it boots again without anything happeninng.

Just purchased a G50-30 with win 7 x64. Decided to update the BIOS A7CN40WWW_64 from Lenovo website. The notebook version was A7CN23WW. Upon reboot, after successful BIOS update, Win 7 booted with errors of Repair option or Normal boot up. Even re-installation of Win 7 will yield BSOD - ACPI non compliant.  Have changed BIOS settings defaults from UEFI to Legacy, it still does not work. This BIOS version is not stable.Please help / advise ? Can i request for the earlier version of BIOS ? 













Solved!

HiAfter unsuccessful BIOS update I made a brick from my G780. Maybe notfully. SYmptoms are below. When I pressing power ON button I hear a fan, HDD and DVD and led frompower, battery lights on, and led from hdd blinks one time. After thatnumlock's led is on. On screen I see nothing. It is just black. Even indark room when I'm flashing directly on it still see nothing. In thisstate Laptop react for pressing capslock or numlock buttons andchanging their state ON/OFF. I tried to do emergency BIOS flashing by unplugging AC, holding Fn-Band then power button. FAN is spinning on highest speed, pendrive thatI used blinks one time and after about 10 seconds starting flashingwith led for 20 or more seconds. I seems like reading bios QIWG5.binfile, but after those 20 seconds nothing happens. I read that G780should make one short beep, and after a while should start beeping ininterval several times. Instead of this is only silence and after a fewminutes shutting down without success. Symptoms are still like insecond paragraph. I tried every USB port, with or without battery, original BIOS that wasbefore update, this new bios. Pendrive is formatted in FAT16.Any suggestions about what else can I do?Best regards, Peter*sorry for my English I didn't use it since school)

Hi Lenovo Forum.I've bought this Notebook a month ago and I'm fairly satisfied with it.After I've done some tweaks such as removing the dust filter and downgrading the BIOS, the performance is great!But I ran into some problems after using it for a while now.I saw that there is a new BIOS update and I wanted to test it, but when I start the .exe it gives me: Runtime Error (at:1611):Out of String range. When I use CPU-Z to look up my Hardware, at BIOS it says Missing String or in the Lenovo Settings App BIOS: N/AI've read that others had this problem too, but no one has found a Solution. Does anybody know what I can do?

Hi.I have a problem with my battery not charging (at 1% left and power connected) and get an error message that my battery is not recognized by Lenovo, even though it's the same battery I've had for 4 years (the laptop is as good as new, and I don't want to change it).Apparently, a BIOS update should work, according to several web forums, and it worked when I had the same problem some time ago. But since then I have updated to Windows 10 and I can't find any BIOS updates for my laptop which is compatible with windows 10. And those that are compatible with windows 10 are not compatible with my laptop. Will there ever be an update, or do anyone have another solution to my battery problem?INFO:Windows 10 Home 64 bitIntel Core i5-3337U 1.80 GHz8GB RAMCurrent BIOS id: 7ECN19WW

Hello,I have flashed my laptop's BIOS with the tool from the support page, I can see that the new BIOS version is installed (0ZCN26WW), but the EC version is different (0ZEC25WW).I have even enabled the BIOS rollback feature so I could flash it twice as I've seen in a different post, but still no good luck. Is this a normal behaviour? Should let it be, or do I have to do anything else? Thanks,Alex

specs:480GB ssd, 12gb ram, AMD A10 9600p APUEver since updating my laptop to the latest bios, my cpu performance has reduced based on the benchmarks, i have also noticed reduced framerates in game:Geekbench 4:before updated bios:2100 single core4540 multicore maxafter bios update2100 single score 4230 multiscore maxperformance test 9 benchmark CPU score:before bios update:4200max, integer scores aroudn 7930 maximumafter bios update:3900 max, integer performance is reduced down to 7300 maximum which brings down the overall cpu score. Other problems include:1. Fan speed increases uneccessarily even when web browsing which is very annoying.2. GPU clock speed reduces just after 2 minutes of gameplay, for example it will reduce from 600mhz-720 down to 480mhz to 570mhz maximum, this has a negative effect on framerates in game, whilst doing so the GPU temperature is reduced for 58 degrees celcius average down to 50 degrees average.3. Not sure if this is a problem but in game the GPU never reaches 100% utilisation.4. Memmory is clocked at 1866mhz which is strange as the minimum frequency for ddr4 ram you can buy is 2133mhz, would be nice if it was increased to 2133mhz in a future bios update.5. when the laptop battery  reaches 30%, the CPU clockspeed reduces down to 1.15ghz which causes severe stuttering in game and makes navigating through the OS very unresponsive.6. The CPU clocks fairly low during games such as bf4, gta v and fifa 15 it ranges from 0.77ghz to 1.9ghz... Read more

A while ago I posted the possibility of upgrgrading my 6GB Lenovo V570 to 16GB.  It seemed as if it would be ok, although contrary to what Lenovo stated, but I chickened out.  Instead I've been living with my unit opearting very slowly and having the desktop manager and shockwave flash frequently fail.  It's not wonderful dealing with this and I have been looking for answers.  I thought about adding another couple of GB and along the way found suggestions on updating the drivers and bios.  Anyone savvy enough to advise on what drivers being updated would improve and how to accomplish this?  Also how is the bios updated wihtout screwing everything up?  I'm also thinking of doing a factory resore after backing up all the info on the unit.  Woudl a fresh start help or should I just  save my money and buy a new windows 10 computer?  Thanks!

I'm here to request Lenovo to update the bios to enable the M.2 2242 42mm for SSDs? This is really bad since our office PCs have been upgraded from T450s but it seems we are downgrading as we cannot use our originally bought M.2 2242 for the old T450s. Can you please update the bios to enable this the 2242 for SSDs? We need more diskspace to do some graphics and photo make ups on the road. The single 2280 is not enough since when we got the machines, only 512GB was available.

I don't believe that the PCI-e circuitry is still present for the WWAN card slot on the T460s so it's not as simple as a BIOS change to enable the previous functionality which was present in the T450s. There is a 1TB option for the T460s which is the PM961 SSD which could be installed in place of your 512gb SSD, but that may not be an option in your case.
