Q: Cannot update T470 BIOS from version 1.30

Error 81: Internal error (Could not determine FW features information)When attempting to install a BIOS update either via the .exe or via bootable USB, the process appears to successfully flash but fail to reboot the system. After waiting several hours, I forcibly rebooted the system to find that the update wasn't applied. I believe the issue with the BIOS and the ME state are linked - the 1.30 has some hibernation/reboot bugs and I think the ME is in a corresponding state also preventing successful reboots. At the moment, I cannot reboot or shutdown my T470 and regularly have to make use of the reset button to force a shutdown. What are my options for forcibly updating the BIOS if I can't rely on the OS to cleanly shut down?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello I am trying to update my laptop bios and I have the following error, bios image file doesn't match this system the utility process has not completed site Does anyone face the same issue?

A:T470 20HE update bios failed

I have a t470 HD, which according to the support site has the same drivers listed for both HD and HE.  I installed the latest BIOS a couple days ago (version 1.52) dated 07-22-2018 and it installed without any issues. Double check that you are using the proper BIOS for the T470 and run a checksum on the file to make sure it is not corrupt (The checksums are supplied when you click on the Readme icon).  With something as critical as the BIOS I always check the checksum.

As the title says, top right USB port on my T470 doesn't work after BIOS v1.42 update when device is plugged in on boot.  Non of devices power up when plugged into that port. Naturally there's nothing in dmesg. This is not OS-dependent since devices don't power up in BIOS screen as well. The other 2 ports still work as expected. Restarting doesn't help. After some cold boots the ports starts working again. This never happened with previous BIOS versions.

First you have to go to whatever site it is for your pc and see if there is an update. If there is download it then run it.

Some free advice. If your bios is working fine, and there`s no need to update it, then dont.

It could make things worse.

I have an ASUS X54C Laptop.

When I bought the laptop the BIOS version was 204.

I see that BIOS version 210 for my model laptop is now available from the ASUS website. I have never updated BIOS before and am nervous about this

EDIT: From system specs, this is what the full description of the current BIOS version is:





BIOS Version: American Megatrends Inc. K54C.204, 2012-01-20



So I have downloaded the latest BIOS V. 210. It downloads as a ZIPPED folder named K54CAS210

Can anyone advise on the correct method to extract, & install, the latest BIOS version, and highlight the risks I might face?

Thanks in advance

A:BIOS version .. to update or not

There should be information with the download about what is updated. I always read that. It's a shame if a BIOS update fails but even worse if there's nothing you really needed in the new code. Also you should check if there's a way to revert to the current version even if the new install has an error.

I haven't had a PC go dead doornail on me. But I had it happen on a $240 external modem. Not fun.

I tried to boot the above Envy Notebook today (8th July) and the BIOS was corrupted. So I successfully flashed it via USB with the latest version, just published yesterday the 7th July. It may have been a pure coincidence around the date but was there some vulnerability in the previous BIOS ?("- Provides improved security of UEFI code and variables." ) Or is it more likely just to be my machine? (I haven't used the machine in a week or more, it was in hibernation.) Is there a changelog anywhere?

Hi,
How to know the correct version of bios to get updated and how to do in running windows?
Will the bios update create some new menu in my bios? if not, what is the use of bios update?
Why driver update program like drivermax does not find updates for bios?
Can i add any item in Boot priority menu and make it workable thro registry tricks

A:how to know the correct version of bios for update

My rules of the thumb when it comes to bios updates (flash)

1. Always use the motherboard manual instruction to do a bios flash.

2. Only do a bios flash if the problem you are having is listed in the bios information as a repair for the problem you are having.

3. Never do a bios flash just because their is a new one. If your not having a problem leave the bios alone.

Example: Here is my bios on the system I'm typing from now.

BIOS
Brand American Megatrends Inc.
Version 0502
Date 11/16/2010

I'm not having any problems so I leave the 2010 bios alone.
If I do get a problem 99.9% of the time it's not caused by the bios version.

As far as I know you can't flash the bios from within Windows 7.
Your bios is installed on/in the motherboard not in Window 7 registry.

On some motherboards if a bios flash goes a muck your motherboard will become unusable. Possibly the motherboard manufacture will repair it.

Driver update programs like drivermax will most likely do nothing but cause problem. Install a bunch of PUP's and be very difficult to remove completely.

(Requires restart.) - Create Recovery USB Flash drive: Creat an HP BIOS Recovery USB flash drive to recover another HP device. - Copy: Copy BIOS image to any file location. (Advanced users)We have not made any recent changes, installed any hardware or software, etc. The computer has been fine but does seem a little slower than it was. (My grandson uses the computer a lot for online games. Don't know if he may have downloaded games that are slowing the computer or visited sites which have attracted Malware, etc.)Wondering if this is a prompt issued by HP for a normal update that I should do, or if there is something wrong and I should not do it. Computer literacy is minimal. . .good with using them, not good with understanding them.Many thanks for any help that you can provide.Specs:HP All-In-One 22-3116Windows 10 HomeIntel Celeron N3050 @ 1.6 GHz4.00 GB RAMThank you!

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

hi, i have a lenovo b590 laptop (20208 type) with i3 3110m and nvidia gt720m and whenever i try to update the BIOS using the latest BIOS version available on the lenovo drivers download page , i get the following error: https://i.imgur.com/lKMLQV9.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/OkY9aQy.png this is the actual BIOS version on the laptop: https://i.imgur.com/1Tvib3d.jpg  how can i update the BIOS on it? i guess the problem is that the allready running BIOS is H1ETXXXX version and on the lenovo drivers download page is only the H9ETXXXX version which i guess isn't compatible with the 20208 version of the laptop and shows the "machine does not match with this bios" error. forgot to mention that my OS is windows 7 x64 on which i tried to run the bios update.  also will this laptop model gonna receive any new bios updates especially regarding the newly discovered intel security flaws or it's completely abandoned allready in terms of support?

Hello, I have problem with BIOS on my Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk. Namely, I have updated BIOS to E5CN56WW version and after that I can't boot Windows 10. All I get is black screen with boot menu window and options to select from where to boot. But as I select my boot drive nothing happens, just bring me back to the same message (see picture). Please, if you can tell me where is the problem, what was changed with these BIOS update and how to fix this. Thanks in advance.Kind regards,Luka

I just bought my Ideapad, and recently received the subject update to be installed, but it gives me the option to continue or cancel. This confuses me -- since I'm given the choice to install something, do I need to install it or not, and should I always allow these updates to be installed, even though I don't know what is being installed? Thanks for any help/response!

Need to determine which of the five versions of BIOS downloads to I use from the HP download web site.  I want to install a 3.0 USB Hub to my all in one, and was advised to make sure that my BIOS had the latest updated software, So the PC will see the device plugged into the Hub.  The HP web site has five BIOS updates, which do I use ?

I update the BIOS of my ideapad 720S13IKB to V.6MCN21WW version via Lenovo Vantage today. Then the laptop (maybe the fan) beacomes noisy after booting and when running small apps such as Lenovo Vantage. It used to be very quiet all the time before this BIOS update. What's more, the CPU speed often boosts up to higher than 3.3 GHz, which is crazy as the base speed is only 1.8 GHz, as shown in the attached picture. This is also comes with this BIOS update. I am afraid there is something wrong with the BIOS or my laptop. How can I fix this issue or go back to the earlier BIOS version? Thank you.

Windows 10 has been running fine for some time, but attempt to update to Anniversary fails. The update runs fine until the point after restart where it states "The machine will restart several times"; soon into that sequence when  attempting a restart, the machine switches itself off instead. When I then switch it back on manually, the update is lost and the system resets itself to the previous Windows version.A Microsoft technician worked for hours before concluding that I would have to do a full, clean WIndows 10 installation, after which all files and applications would be lost and needed to be reinstalled. I have been wondering if the faulty restart behaviour is related to the BIOS somehow, and I have had it reinstalled from HPs site with no change. So, my questions areCan BIOS be the cause? Btw, I have turned the fast restart option (under power schemes) off.I note that I got a "legacy" BIOS installed. Is UEFI available for this laptop, and would that make a difference?If I do install UEFI, will Windows 10 and applications run as before or could other issues arise?

Hi -I know the T520 is old, but mine is in excellent shape (new keyboard, new hard drive) and I want to keep it a little while longer. Windows 10 is trying to install version 1607, and it fails every time. Microsoft support says I need to deactive Secure Boot in the BIOS, but the T520 does not seem to have that option. My BIOS version is 8AET46WW (1.26) and I would like to know if it is possible to update this BIOS any more. I don't see any information or downloads anywhere that indicate that it is possible. None of the Lenovo tools seem to work, and the System Update tool only proposes to update my SD card reader driver!Thanks a million for any advice you may have.
