Synaptic UltraNav Driver fails to be updated via Lenovo Companion - System Update ThinkPad T450s

Q: Synaptic UltraNav Driver fails to be updated via Lenovo Companion - System Update ThinkPad T450s

I have regualrly run a System Update for my computer via Lenovo Companion and I've managed to have all updates successfully completed - all except for one. Lately, I have runs of Updates where I encounter an update for Synaptic UltraNav Driver, run it, but comes up as being unable to download and install - in spite of a successful initial download. Since its encounter a couple of weeks ago, I have been unsuccessful in fully downloading and installing this specific Driver for my computer. Is there any indication of issues for this Drive? And what should I do to resolve it? Also, if the Driver can't be properly updated, what is its purpose for my system? Any form of help concerning this Driver update issue would be appreciated.

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.)

*Please read in entirety before replying*The situation is as follows: - Purchased new X1 Thinkpad Yoga 3rd Gen in Jan 2019; Windows 10 64-bit- Bought with the MISTAKEN belief that the track pointer stick would have "press to select/click" capability. Not having this feature is an absolute DEAL BREAKER for me.  - Steps taken in attempt to resolve the problem: 1. Uninstalled driver for Synaptics Pointer in Device Manager 2. Installed most recent version of Ultranav Driver3. Result: NO CHANGE  - In MOUSE PROPERTIES, there is no option for "press to select" - only choices are to use for scrolling or as middle click. Question 1: Is there ANY WAY possible to incorporate the press-to-select option for the pointing stick on this model?Question 2: If it is not possible, which Thinkpad models currently DO include this option?  Thank you in advance...

I dont usually make updates, but when i do...I opened the Lenovo Companion and went for the drivers updates. There was 3 updates: WLAN (I think), Bluetooth, and a BIOS (4WCN29WW) update. I installed the lenovo programs needed to download the updates, as the Lenovo Companion recommended, and started updating the drives. At the BIOS update i was prompted that this update was for the Lenovo 300/500 series and proceeded. After the update, my notebook is not starting. It stops after the bios, windows gives this stopcode: "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE", restarts and tries to repair the initialization, wich doenst work. I searched here on the forums and found some tips: Enter the BIOS and switch to legacy support.It now enters the windows repair utility, but doesnt start. Windows restore point.Restore succesfull, but didnt work.Windows Initialization repair.Could not repair the initialization.CHKDSKNo problems found.  Notebook info:320-15IKB (Type 80XL, 80YE) Laptop (ideapad)Model 80YH0001BRWindows 10 (64bits) Please help me fix this...

Just so everyone knows . . . don't rely on the System Update function of Lenovo Companion to update your machine. I used it today and it told me all was good. However, when I checked the Drivers and Software section of the Support Site, it showed a new version of Lenovo Software Foundation and App Explorer to download. In a word, the System Update function is "no bueno".

In the past, I have been able to receive the latest updates via Lenovo Companion > System Update (while occasionally accessing the actual System Update program). But lately when I access both System Update - the actual program - as well as the System Update option via Lenovo Companion, I am greeted with the following error message after loading at around 15% (or after not loading at all): "The System Update Server is currently unavailable. Please try again later." Is there a solution for this issue? I would appreciate assistance on this problem. I am currently a Windows 10 Home (Build Version 1703) user with a Lenovo Companion at Version 3.73.1.0. The last time I have checked my ThinkPad T450s for updates was yesterday at 10:40am HKT (Hong Kong Time) and the last time I made any updates to my computer was on May 31st at 10:37am HKT.

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me, I want to upgrade the BIOS of the L560 from 1.18 to 1.43. Each time I try this, it boots into the bios system, I select bios update and follow the steps until the screen says that it will reboot, but it never does. (see screenshot) Frozen at this screenAfter hours of waiting, trying to long press (20 sec) the power button shuts down the computer. Afterwards the computer boots but displays "Secure Flash Authentication failed!"After forced rebootAfter that I have to long press (20 sec) the power button again to restart the computer and it boots back into the 1.18 (I have also tried to update to version 1.22 or 1.17 (downgrade), with the same results)And also tried to "upgrade" to the same version 1.18 as well, which doesn't work because the system says that there is no new version. Do you have any tips how to upgrade the BIOS on the L560? Kind RegardsOlaf

See this companion thread on Dell's forum detailing my unsucessful attempts to use Dell U2415 monitors with my Thinkpad T450s. As of now, the moderator of that site has not been able to identify a solution. I have two of the u2415 monitors, and it seems extremely unlikely both pieces of hardware are defective. Therefore, am assuming this is a problem with the Thinkpad. Any ideas what might be going wrong? When I press F7 it gives me the option to select "extend", etc, but nothing appears on the monitor. Similarly, the monitor realizes something is plugged into its DP port (via the mDP port on the Thinkpad), but it is receiving no picture. So it's close to working, but is not working. Appreciate any help. Anyone else currently using a Thinkpad T450s with a Dell U2415? Barring responses from others with different experiences, I would not recommend buying a Dell U2415 if you hope to connect it to this model of Thinkpad. Though given that the problem appears to be on the Thinkpad's end, I guess I wouldn't recommend buying the Thinkpad if you're averse to these kinds of connectivity issues.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

A customer brought in the their Lenovo Thinkpad 450s because their screen was failing.They already had purchased a new screen and gave me the e-mail confirmation from the order that showed that it was the correct screen that they needed.However, the new display is still black.When I hook up an external monitor, nothing but a mouse pointer shows.But I can connect to the external monitor if I power on the laptop and then immediately close the lid.The external display then shows the desktop.But then I lift the laptop lid, the laptop screen is still black. Even when I change the display settings to extend the desktop.  There was one brief occurrence with the new screen, where I saw a very faint lenovo logo appear when the splash screen loaded. But then it went completely black again. And has not done even the faint image since, it was just a fluke occurrence.And when I shine a flashlight, I still see no display. While the external monitor is displaying the desktop and I then reopen the laptop lid, the laptop screen is recognized as being there. ( Display settings, shows monitor 1 and 2 ).But the laptop screen is still black. Any thoughts? Is there a lid sensor or magnet that activates the screen? I can't find anything.

The compute recognises the card with no issues. Unfortunately, however, when a simcard is inserted it does not register the simcard whatsoever - 'Insert sim' is still present.In my searches on this forum it seems this problem is Windows 10 specific - the system does recognise the wireless card but does not recognise the simcard reader.

Hi folks -  We have an Aspire 5733Z.  Now Windows 10 (It was originally Windows 8, and a while back, Microsoft eventually didn't give us a choice to update to Windows 10) It has a Synaptic PS/2 TouchPad.  I recently tried to update the driver for this TouchPad - as I thought maybe this would activate a 2-finger scroll that I've seen in other (newer) Windows 10 laptops recently. I downloaded from Synaptic website what seems to be the latest drivers for Windows 10 - a large zip file.  I installed the driver - seamingly successfully.  The touchpad still works (can move mouse and select, etc.) - but now when I look at the associated driver in device manager - the "mice and other pointing devices" is no longer listed as "Synaptic PS/2 TouchPad" as before, but now just simply "PS/2 Compatible Mouse".  Further - the original driver was dated something from 2011, and the current driver is now from 2006.  AKA it's not the Synaptic driver I just installed. So what am I missing?  I'm not an expert but know just enough to be dangerous  Any advice much appreciated. Thanks - Brad

A:Synaptic Touchpad driver won't update

For what it's worth - the driver is now: 10.0.14393.0 and the driver I downloaded from Synaptics and attempted to install was Windows 10 PS/2 & SMBus Devices v19.0.19.1

We're planning to push BIOS updates to all our systems in the near future. However, in testing we've noticed that some systems will fail installation with error code 211. The problem seems to be related to a changed BIOS logo, since when ran manually, the updater asks if it should overwrite the existing logo or keep it. This seems to cause problems when you run the BIOS update executable "winuptp64.exe" with the "-s" (silent) argument.Is there a solution to this, like an argument that forces overwriting of logo or keep existing? Full error log:[2018/1/24 11:40:47] version 25.26

First of all basic information about my machine. Lenovo Thinkpad W541 OS- Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1 System- Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2,50GHz 2,50GHz- Installed memory: 16,0 GB- System tpye: 64-bit Operating System Dispaly adapters- Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600- NVIDIA Quadro K2100MAbove you can see the current driver versions of the display adapters. Unfortunately installing the driver update for display adapters from the lenovo support page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/se/de/downloads/ds037642) didn't work. Once I got a BSOD after rebooting and the other time the driver versions just stayed the same without change. Situations when I feel that something is wrong with the drivers are for instance when I want to launch a game. After launching the game,  the screen turns immediately black and I fall back to the desktop. When launching another game, the screen just flickers black and white.  I would be grateful if somebody could help me with that matter since after hours of research I haven't been able to solve the problem myself.  Please let me know if more information is required.  Cheers,Simon

I just got an E540 and upon a Windows install, after updating the AHCI driver, the screen glitches out (crazy colors, lines, etc) and the system locks up. After a reboot, during Windows startup, the screen glitches out again and it completely powers off. System restore removes the driver and restores the ability to boot.
I've installed the driver from both Lenovo and a newer one from Intel and get the same result.
Windows has the driver already and I'm not opposed to leaving it the way it is, I'm just really wondering about this issue and would like to eventually update.
This happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, by the way.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I have an annoyance that I'd like to get some advice on if I can.
I'm running a pretty new install of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1...only about a month old. Very few changes have been made to the system--very few programs installed...nothing crazy happening.
While trying to fix one issue, I stumbled upon this issue. Here it is:
A diagnostic startup seems to break the automatic startup activity of the Synaptics touchpad driver. What I mean is that, after performing a diagnostic startup and then returning to a normal startup, the Synaptics touchpad driver, which is checked in the
startup tab of msconfig, will no longer automatically start upon login. I have to manually execute it from explorer.
This is annoying because I don't want to have to reinstall this driver every time I have to uncheck it as a startup item in msconfig.
...any suggestions?

Thanks.
