Q: Updating BIOS for Z50 gives a 0x45 error-code

Hello Lenovo support, I just tried to update my BIOS on my Lenovo Z50, which has Windows 10. I chose the file this site said I just use, 9bcn91ww.exe, but when trying to install it I get the message:ErrorIHISI: Get support mode error in SMI!SMI Return Code: 0x45 Am I trying to install a wrong version or is it something else?

Preferred Solution: Updating BIOS for Z50 gives a 0x45 error-code

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.)


Trying to restore Emachine E28 laptop.
After last install disk runs I receive the following message:
Restore failed. Error code = 045 (WIM ApplyImage cannot apply image. the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.)
Have tried almost everything I can think of but no results.
Would someone be able to help?

A:Restore failed Error code = 0x45

Please clarify what you mean by "restore", system restore? Repair? Restore to factory condition using the built in recovery console? Using restore disks? Did you create/purchase/download & burn the restore disc set?

What symptoms/behavior/ problems...etc led you attempting to restore? Any recent hardware/software/changes/problems that may or may not contribute to these problems? Potential helpers need more to go on.

Windows will not update this one item....

error found: code 80070643

I even went to windows and tried to update manually and it says some updates were not installed: update for windows (KB950125)

Is there a way I can get it to stop asking me to update this update? It is driving me crazy.

A:error code when updating windows

Yes if it is just that update you want to disregard - let it come down through Automatic Updates -- then right click on it and check the option to "Hide" the update.

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file

Seems like this is an old error code for a virus or malware. You should thoroughly scan your computer for such. Then run your updates.

Some times this error code means you have some sort of malware in your system.

recently I have been unable to install vista updates and have consistently received the error code 800700C1 over several attempts

I read through this thread http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...p1-251666.html and have run teh sfc/scannow to find that there are some damaged files.

I have an installation disk but did not see the option to repair files before it would install all of vista so I was afraid to go any further.

I've attached the CBS.log which appears to be longer than what I've done as the dates from when i scanned are 11/1/2009 at the bottom and the date starts a week ago. If anyone could guide me what to do from here it would be much appreciated.

Some suggestions at my blog: http://usasma.vox.com/library/post/w...d-26feb09.html

I'd suggest first:
- go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
- then, at the top of the search box - right click on cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"
- then, go back to Start and type in "windows explorer" (without the quotes)
- then, at the top of the search box - right click on Windows Explorer and select "Run as administrator"

Then, go to the black Cmd.exe window and type:

net stop wuauserv

And press Enter
(you should get a message that the service has successfully stopped)

Then, go to the Windows Explorer window
and navigate to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
And delete the contents of the folder.

Then, go back to the black cmd.exe window and type

net start wuauserv

And press Enter
(you should get a message that the service has successfully started)

Then try to update again (make sure all Windows Update stuff is closed before re-opening it.

A:Windows 7 not updating to SP1 Window Update failing error code 800736B

Hello and welcome Greg now I am assuming you have 7 onboard and have been using it - or is it a new install and you are trying to get SP1 installed?.

If it is the latter then it is easily fixed using this tutorial
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
If you have data on the install then if it isn't too much just back it up and do the tutorial.

Just one thing make sure you only pick the version you have an activation code for as trying to get a higher version installed will end in grief.

So this all first started happening a few months ago when I was updating my audio drivers. The update was doing its thing then it crashed for some reason, and I haven't been able to update it at all since then. Oddly enough though, my audio has always worked fine. That is until today, for no reason that I can see, my audio has stopped working all of a sudden. But even though I can't hear anything either through my headphones or monitor speakers, I can see the little audio fader thing moving when I have some audio playing.

What can I do to try and fix this problem? Oh, and I should also note, the image that I posted, I get that pop-up everytime I start my computer. And the following is what it shows when you click the Details button.

A:Error Code: -5006 : 0x8000ffff when installing/updating audio driver.

Hi HS5964,

If the 'Audio' has been working fine lately, you may try performing a 'System Restore' to roll back 'corrupt software changes': System Restore
Note: Please create a 'Restore Point' before attempting the 'Restore': System Restore Point - Create

If the issue persists, you may remove 'Audio drivers' from 'Device Manager' and try installing fresh set of drivers.
- Click 'Start' > Type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search box > Tap 'Enter' > Locate and Expand 'Sound, Video & Game Controllers' category > Right click and uninstall the 'Realtek related' driver > Follow through with the uninstall > Allow 'Windows' to restart > 'Windows' will install updates for the 'Realtek Audio' (You may also install drivers from the manufacturer website: Realtek) > Recheck the results.

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

Process took MUCH LONGER than ever before (I've maybe updated the BIOS 3-4 other times) but it completed eventually, the system restarted, and then I saw the dreaded message: Configuration changed - restart the system I literally said "oh s---" out loud, watched it restart itself and cycle through the process three times, then the system started normally. Running W10, have never made any changes to the BIOS whatsoever. FWIW. I love my P1, it's the best & fastest laptop I've ever owned, but, c'mon Lenovo - get this BIOS crap sorted, willya? Geez... -kj-

As the title says. 3 year old laptop that otherwise is still great, now useless due to Lenovo not updating the bios and preventing me from updating windows which made adobe illustrator and photoshop stop working, can't download codecs, etc. Windows support said until lenovo updates the bios I'm out of luck and have a useless machine. I can browse the internet and use apps that haven't tried to update... Lenovo was a great machine. I was a big fan. Due to lack of support for older machines and this ridiculous issue I would never recommend any business professional like me to purchase one. To have it literally just stop working one day due to lack of software upkeep on lenovo is just silly. Is this how you make people buy new computers? It worked, except I'm going to go to best buy and ask them to sell me a machine that won't stop suddenly due to the manufacturer not keeping it up to date. For the record this is the second time this has happened and lenovo updated a few weeks later. I use this for work and can not deal with my apps not working for weeks while I wait for lenovo to roll out updates... SO, dear Lenovo, update the bios of the y50-70, serial: CB36361936

A:My y50-70 is now useless due to lenovo not updating bios preventing me from updating windows.

What version of Windows are you running right now, what version are you trying to update to, and what error are you getting? Per Lenovo (see link below), that model is compatible with Windows 10 1809, but has not yet been certified for Microsoft's just released May 1903 update. Lenovo devices tested for Windows 10 version 1809https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht507291 When Microsoft makes major OS updates, the manufactures of hardware devices in your system such as like Intel, Synaptics and Realteck etc. may need to provide updated drivers to computer manufacturers such as Lenovo etc. so their hardware will work properly.  Windows 10 version 1903 is just now rolling out, so I cannot believe that Adobe is requiring version 1903 for codec updates etc.    I also find it hard to believe that it is a BIOS issue, and would guess that most likely Microsoft is blowing you off with that excuse, because there are many Y50-70 systems running Windows 10 already using the old BIOS. Windows 10 Drivers page for Lenovo Y50-70https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-y-series-laptops/y50-70-note...    Cheers,

Alright. I have been building a new PC after a recent lightning strike burned the other one. This is the 5th PC I've built and have never had any problems.

When starting the PC it goes through the motions and recognizes the boot disks; however, shortly after a blank screen come up with the POST error code "EB_". According to Intel this is a "Initialize PCI and DMA" error. What is that? And how can it be fixed?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:BIOS Error Code

I'm not all that experienced in this kind of stuff, but you could try flashing your BIOS to the newest version and making everything is plugged in properly and tight.

New X250 notebook shipped with BIOS version 1.13, and I'd like to update it to 1.17, becouse it has Windows 10 support, and I'm having power management issues with that OS. (cannot wake up from sleep, system freeze when closing lid, even with sleep turned off in that case.) I can successfully downgrade my BIOS to 1.12, 1.11, but I cannot upgrade it to 1.16 or 1.17 (cannot download 1.13, it's revoked). The update starts in Windows, restarts, but then an error message stops the update: Finished PUP flashing, Error Code: Unknown error code (0xC),ADDITIONAL_DATA:0x7Error reported from PFAT: Unknown ErrorStatus of TdkBiosRomWrite: 1ERROR 102 : Failed to perform flash After rebooting, I can comfirm that the update failed. It's strange, as I mentioned, 1.12, 1.11 can be flashed without problems.BIOS rollback protection is off, secure boot is off, BIOS user flash is enabled.I've run out of options, any advice?

A:BIOS cannot update, ERROR CODE 102

Good day and welcome to the community.
Sorry you're having difficulty.
If you have access to a USB CD/DVD drive, you could try using the bootable disk method:
but you might want to speak with Support (info below) about this first. A failed BIOS upgrade can be very difficult to recover from.

Hello,please could you give me advice - I made a BIOS update (Version: 01.42Ap1). This update was strongly recommended in program HP support assistant. Immediately after update the error 601 occurred (for the first time...). The notebook was bought in 6-2015 and it is used only occasionally. The Battery Test in HP Support Assistant shows 0%. The program BatteryInfoView (BIV) shows Battery Level Wear 100% (which means that the battery is 100% ok). On my old (working) notebook EliteBook 8540p the BIV shows 35% level. I think that the battery is ok but something in BIOS is incorrect.Thank you for your advice.Tomas BIV - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/battery_information_view.html

Please help me on how to fix my bios error code 81FB, i cannot log-in to windows xp

A:How To Fix Bios Error Code =81fb


Need more info. Is this error code appearing when you turn on your PC or when you're trying to install Windows. BIOS error code indicates a problem with the PC's CMOS BIOS, not with Windows. Please reply with the make/model of your PC and/or Motherboard and exactly when you're seeing this error.

Item A) Upgraded BIOS to 1.19 & error code '10' showing in Device Manager. Upgraded to 1.21 & same thing happens again. All tests show normal results on hardware. Tried removal & roll-back on the drivers, re-installed them, yet same error code. Machine runs perfectly. Just this one little glitch problem. Anyone know what to do? Would be grateful for any suggestions! Item B) Link for download yields 'The document you have requested is not available.

I've been recommended to update my bios (original threet http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ml#post7462354)

And this was a fatal mestake in my case. After the update i had problems to boot up again. At first it was error 32 on the motherboard debug panel. I removed all usb cables, and restarted couple of times, and eventualy it booted fine. I checked the bios, its version was the correct one (3.30)

But today i wasnt able to boot at all, first couple of tries was error 32 once again, than i removed all usb cables again. Still nothing. Support at Asrock mailed me that i should disconect all sata devices. So i did that, but after powering on the error changed to 00 and it remained this way no matter what i plug or unplug. Any help would be apriciated.

my mother board is Asrock p67 pro3 ( ASRock > P67 Pro3)
with procesor intel i5 2500k (no overclocking)

PCCHIPS Model M810DLU (ver 5.2a)
AMI 62-1111-001131-00101111-040201-SiS740- M810D

I pulled this MB off my shelf of "projects". When I tried to make this work in the past, it always failed to boot. However, I discovered yesterday that 2 of my 3 Socket 462 "project" CPUs didn't work at all. #3 project chip - Athlon 2100+ does work.

So I put that project MB and project chip together, and the combo worked. I was able to boot from a live linux CD and from a Bart PE CD. That's the good news.

The bad news is that this combo - loaded with memory, video, drives, and any of 3 brand new 450W power supplies - occasionally fails to boot.
When it dies,

it's on one of the first 10 instructions
fails on POST Code 'dF'
resets the DRAM and CPU rates from 133 to 100 - changing my CPU from a 2100+ to a 1500+ -- PS: I know that an Athlon XP 2100+ actually operates at 1733Mhz

The Power Supply stays on and other MB accessories (CPU fan, drives as examples) continue to function. The video does not light up because it's too soon in the POST to display.

Normally that would be no big deal: look up the POST code and see where it failed. The problem is that I can't find any reference to a code 'dF' in any AMI or Award documentation or in the documentation available from PCCHIPS.

I've Googled terms like
+ pcchips + motherboard + m810d + "boot" + df
I've always gotten lots of hits, but nothi... Read more

A:Solved: Odd BIOS (POST) Error Code

Good Evening snorkytheweasel, I was just reading your post and the M810 looked familiar, quite coincidentally I have one in front of me right now. It is a M810LM slightly different but close.

It doesn't even post!

It did have an odd fail problem before it died. It originally had an Athlon in it.

I tried a Duron 1900 in it and it failed to work also.

I don't think this board is worth playing with further.

That hanging boot symptom is typical of a low 5 volt rail from the PSU.
One last effort may be tried by using a digital meter set to read a DC voltage higher than 10 volts and measuring one of the PSU drive power plugs between the red and black wires in a powered mode. That 5v is critical.

I have no idea what a df code is.
