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?

Hi

My new lenovo K450 constantly crashes with blue screen when playing Dota 2 but have done that also when surfing. Machine came with Win8.0 but I updated that for 8.1, all Windows updates have been done and Nvidia Gtx 650 driver has been updated for latest 331.82 driver.

Do you think this is driver problem or hw issue needing repair ? Attached latest memory dump and summary for 5 BSOD's. Any advice appreciated. Unfortunately I cannot attach zipped dump-files will continue trying...

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

( Win8 and Win8.1 Auto Installation Program)
Let's check whether it makes any difference.

A:lenovo k450 - turn off chasis light

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....

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.

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

The computer powers on, but it doesn't even show the Lenovo logo. When I try to go into the bios with that small button, the same thing happens. Is there anyway to recover the bios with a flash drive somehow? I found an instruction to recover the bios using the USB drive, but it needed a BIOS.PWH file which I don't know how to get for Lenovo Z510.  PLEASE HELP ME!

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.

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.

Hey guys, So I got two problema actually with my laptop. The first one is that after my bios update of may 10 2016 my laptop wont reboot anymore. No bios screen or anything, only the logo lights up and the fans stop working after few seconds. The reason for my update was because i bought a new Wifi card the wimax 6250 which is actually whitelisted, didnt work at the begin so I thought updating the bios would help. But now I screwed my laptop which im using for my study. Can someone pls help me with suggestions? Also removing the mobo battery didnt help, after its says that it has been reseted it boots again without anything happeninng.

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.

Hi, I recently bought the Lenovo g50 (80e501g3us) laptop that came loaded with Windows 8.1. I decided to downgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) because the laptop came loaded with spyware such as Superfish and I prefer Windows 7. I first created a system image of the computer for safety and then i rebooted with the Windows 7 CD. I had to delete all of the partitions in order to install Windows 7. The installation was a success and I started updating all of the drivers for my model based on the Windows 7 64 bit OS that I got from Lenovo's website. All drivers except 2 worked which said it required an update. I then flashed my BIOS with the version that I downloaded from Lenovo's website thinking that this might solve my problems. After the BIOS was flashed I received an error that this was the wrong BIOS.Now I get the following errors: Default boot device missing or boot failedInsert recovery media and hit any keyThen select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media This then present me to the boot option menu with the following option only listed:efi pxe network I have inserted the DVD that I used to install Windows 7, however, it is not being recognized or loading since the only option is efi pxe network.

A:Lenovo G50-80 BIOS Update Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Reset the BIOS to default before you do anything else. 
 

Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
Remove main battery
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
Replace main battery
Replace AC adapter (plug into wall then notebook)

This should reset the BIOS to factory defaults, but you should enter the BIOS to make sure your boot order has been changed to indicate your choice of booting (DVD, HDD).  I would also turn off network boot (disable) as you should not need that option for Windows 7, 8 or 10 to work correctly.
 
Good luck.

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!

I have managed to resolve the Win7 installation issues by the following settings in the BIOS setup (F2) : a) Boot Mode/Priority - set to Legacy over UEFIb)  USB Mode - set to 2.0 and not 3.0 Case resolved.

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.

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

Hi lancs , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The support website officially publish any certified BIOS intended for your machine. 
Best to use your serial number to get ones specific for your machine. 
 
If you do not have any issue , it would be best to keep the current ones and simply load its default if needed. 
Similar discussion here and here that may help you.

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.
