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.)

Hi, For my ThinkPad P51, the firmare update fails. It will show an update, and reboot into a black screen. I must then hard power off the machine, and then it reboots into a failure message (screenshot attached). I am running the Intel RST driver, BitLocker off, no BIOS/HDD password. Might mention I am running Win 10 17134. I have tried disabling my Antivirus (ESET).

Sometime in the last week a firmware update came out for nvme drives on the p50 from Lenovo. I tried installing it, but it refuses to update the firmware. Here's the process: Run fwwinsd.exe - which is a Windows appit Finds drive - strangely enough it shows a serial number of all zeroesI tell it do the updateit reboots into tiny linux or something like thatat this point it can't find the firmware image to updatesystem reboots and I see the following windows dialog Update FailedFirware update was not processed because software condition is not ready to update due to some reason. Model: SAMSUNG MZVKV512Serial #:0000_0000_0000_0000Firmware: 6L0Q I also tried putting the installer on a USB thumbdrive but I get the same result. This is probably a case of "if it isn't broke..." but it is not how I roll.  Any ideas on how this updater is supposed to work? Brad

Hi, since a couple of weeks, system update prompts me to update my NVMe disk firmware. It downloads and runs Lenovo Storage Device Firmware Update Utility, but it always fails with the same error: Update Failed: Firmware update FAILED!

Hi All!Using the Lenovo System Update tool, I've updated the bios. It said everything went succesful.However under Device manager, there is an error for the System Firmware:"This device cannot start. (Code 10)Indicates a revision number encountered or specified is not one known by the service. It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of."I've tried "Update Driver" but everytime with this same result.I've also tried "Uninstall Device". But then it goes back to a driver from 2006 (indeed the error is gone) and when I update the driver, the error is back. I've also downloaded the bios update file, and if I run it again it says I'm trying to install the same version that is already installed, so there is no need. So this indicates is did install. However, the error message under Device manager is there... Does anyone have a suggestion what could be going on?(I think the bios update, which just a few days back became available, is related to certain security problems that Intel was having...)

Hello everyone, Lenovo System Update keep asking me to install version 10.0.56.3002 of Intel Management Engine Firmware on my ThinkPad Yoga 12 (Type 20DK) running Windows 10 Pro x64. Once I install the update, a cmd window pops up for a fraction of a second, then my PC restarts. However, the installation seems to fail as System Update keeps asking me to install the update again after the reboot.

Get a messagebox saying "battery not detected" and it's not charging from mains. So laptop has now turned into a desktop... as needs plugging in continually... making it almost useless for purpose. This happened exactly after firmware update a few weeks ago. By coincidence the management software also kindly informed me that it could manage the battery better and stop it wearing out by only charging up to 90% - fair enough, but don't treat me like a muppet and disable it without any way to get it back. Tons of Windows 10 updates today (after not being able to use it for a few weeks) but still no battery. I tried F1 BIOS but nothing there to enable the battery (only to disable it). This is frankly a joke - timing shows it's due to the firmware update because the battery was fine and lasted a couple of hours right before. In 25 years of countless laptops, have never had this problem - batteries weaken gradually but don't suddenly lock up and require a paid replacement suddenly. How do we run down our original battery properly before polluting the planet? Phil

I have tried multiple time to install the Thinkpad BIOS UPdate - 7/8 [32,64]/8.1/10 [64].
I follow instructions to plug-in and close all programs.
The installing bars will not complete past 91%. There is a prompt that asks to pick Thinkpad or Model Number. When I click Thinkpad and NEXT the computer SHUTS DOWN immediately (right after warning not to shut down or damage may occur). The computer screen goes black and 3 ominous beeps repeated 3 or 4 times sound. When I restart my computer nothing has updated.
 
I am unable to complete the Critical Update after trying 4 or 5 times. (Tried downloading and deferring install and the same thing occurred.)
 
(In tandem, I'm getting numerous STOPCODE errors from Microsoft after updating with the Fall Creators update. Not sure if it's related. I've had a variety of problems since the Fall Creators update and was hoping the BIOS update might clear things up.)
 
Any advice?

I noticed a huge performance drag after updating the firmware and drivers of my XPS 15 9550. The update took place on August 4, 2016.
Performance of my usual apps (Chrome, development tools and IDE, etc.) went dramatically down. Typically, I would say things take about 3 times longer to happen. I checked CPU usage (normal) as well as memory consumption (also normal) to find out that the issue comes from the SSD drive.
On this laptop: 500Gb NVMe thnsn5512gpu7 NV (toshiba). Attached are the results of a benchmark run with AS SSD. All write speeds are abysmal, to say the least... that explains a lot, but I have no idea how to solve that issue, and whether or not it is really related to the latest firmware+drivers update shipped by Dell.
(Note: I checked the BIOS, it seems that the SSD is currently configured in RAID mode. Never touched that option before.)
Any idea? Other users impacted in a similar way. Thanks in advance.

Indicates a revision number encountered or specified is not one known by the service. It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of." I've tried "Update Driver" but with this same result.I've also tried "Uninstall Device". But then upon rebooting it goes back to a driver from 2006 (indeed the error is then gone). If I then update the driver again, the error is back. What can I do to resolve this?

Last week I updated the Intel Management Engine Firmware on my T420s to Version 7.1 because it was declared urgent (I guess it fixes the commonly known vulnerability in the Intel ME). Now there seem to be some problems with it and/or the bios. I observe two effects: -When rebooting the laptop it powers off shortly, starts again, but doesn't find the SDD. You have to switch the laptop off completly and switch it on again to get it to work again. - When the laptop should go to sleepmode (S3) (i.e. by closing the lid), it simply turns off completly. Hiberation mode (S4) still works. The laptop is a T420s with Windows 7 64bit, all the Windows patches, BIOS 1.43 and Powermanager 6.68.12. In the windows event log I get the following warnings (Source: ACPI, Event-ID: 15): Der eingebettete Controller (EC) hat Daten zurückgegeben, als keine Daten angefordert wurden. Möglicherweise versucht das BIOS, auf den EC zuzugreifen, ohne mit dem Betriebssystem zu synchronisieren. Diese Daten werden ignoriert. Es ist keine weitere Aktion erforderlich.

It's more likely you're going to need to build a bootable flash drive with an earlier version of Windows to get the flash to work -- Windows 10 is not supported on this model, so it's very likely the flash installer won't run under 10 regardless of which version you're trying to flash.
Rufus is one easy way to make a bootable flash drive that will allow the flash to work.

Hello everybody, I know another thread with similar problems here, booting three times ect .... but not with the new specific problem, this one seems to be new to me and I hope for a solution without the technician having to change the Hardware Motherboard. I had the original ME firmware and now an update was made by Lenovo Vantage, but this unfortunately did not work properly and led to the following: 1. at boot the "Strg P" entry has disappeared 2. in the Bios the entry with ME Firmware Version is empty 3. ME is shown as deactivated or not present in Hardware Manager, The result is that you can no longer perform flash if ME is no longer present in the system. 4. When restarting or reactivating, it will take about 35 seconds for the Lenovo logo to be displayed and the system will start up  this is all very frustrating, i hope that there will be a software solution, or maybe someone knows a solution .... Thanks all for support.....
