B590 bios update refuses to install on win 8.1

Q: B590 bios update refuses to install on win 8.1

I'm on a fresh install of 64-bit windows 8.1, but the BIOS installer gives the following error message: "Your machine does not match with this BIOS. Update process will be halted." Why on earth is this? I googled the error message but this only seems to be a problem with people trying to upgrade the BIOS from win 10... but I'm definitely on 8.1, it even says Windows 8.1 Build 9600 in the corner. The only modification I made is that I upgraded the ram to 8 GB (from 4 GB), but the BIOS update fails even if I take the extra stick out.

Preferred Solution: B590 bios update refuses to install on win 8.1

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.

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. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, trye... Read more

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 everybody,First of all please excuse me for the spelling I'm french .I would like to update the BIOS of my lenovo B590 but I work on Linux Debian stretch. But all the update utilities are only available for Windows. I currently have the H5ET63WW version (1.06) of the BIOS. I did some research on the Lenovo Support Center and realized that I needed to get the BIOS version H9ET75WW first (Here : https://support.lenovo.com/fr/fr/downloads/ds032260 ). So I downloaded the .ZIP file, however it contains a lot of files and I do not know which one to use ... Some friends advised me to go through a FreeDos Live USB to flash the BIOS, but not knowing which file to start, I find myself confused .Here is a recapiltulatif of the system features :  Thank you for your help, I'm well aware that the Linux environment does not facilitate anything but for my work I have no choice ...

Product Name: HP ENVY m7 j020dx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
I attempted a BIOS update earlier today. After it finished, it said that the screen may be black and LED's may blink for a while after (I don't remember the exact wording). Well, the screen was still black after about 4 hours, so I turned it off, and now it refuses to boot. There are no beeps, no error codes, no POST, nothing, so I figure the BIOS must be corrupted or something. I've tried resets and the windows key+b trick with no luck. I've spent a few hours trying to figure out how to run a the BIOS from a USB, but info is a bit scarce, so I couldn't figure it out. So, what else can I try? I don't really have the time nor the money to send it in for repairs, but I need this computer for school by next week.

Edit: A while ago, I had to restore my laptop which erased my HP_TOOLS partition. So, if anyone has the same or a similar laptop and still has their HP_TOOLS partition, a DL link would probably make this a lot easier to fix.

Hello everyone! I have recently ungraded the motherboard of my B590 to HM77 so that I could use it with an Iintel core i5. My question is, is the latest BIOS for Lenovo B590 for both versions of these laptops? I mean, does it support HM77 chip? The current BIOS of the board is very old (2013) and Windows won't switch to Nvida GPU despite it's presense in the device mangager. Thanks and I really appreacite your support!

I have a huge problem with a B590 Notebook: I replaced the harddisk for a test installation of windows 10. This was already quite a pain in the youknowwhat, since it didn't want to boot from USB-stick. I was able to solve that by changing a boot-option in the BIOS to 'legacy' and changing the boot-order and could continue with the windows 10-installation. Then I wanted to reinstall the old harddrive and run the original windows 8 again. Unfortunately the computer doesn't seem to recognize the original harddrive a boot-device anymore. Instead it seems to search for a boot-device on the network (in an endless loop).The problem now is, that I can't access the BIOS anymore. Pressing F1 as stated on the boot screen has no effect (just like pressing F2, F10, F12, ESC, Enter, AnyKey).My next idea was entering the BIOS from the still running windows 10 installation (By pressing Shift+Restartbutton.) Strangely there is no 'UEFI Firmware settings'-option So how can I enter the BIOS to check the boot-settings/order on this notebook? Thanks!

Hi I have changed boot order and also I have disabled UEFI in order to install linux on other partition(not done yet). as I always do on other laptops. But now after changing to legacy mode I cannot access BIOS anymore. I got pxe-e61 error. OK so I insert USB linux drive and it is working properly with live boot.  But I realy need to boot Windows, but it is not possible becoáuse of UEFI being turnd off. Also It is not possible to access bios, because BIOS was accessed from recovery windows menu, whitch doesnt load anymore. Also when it is booting up (lenovo logo) I press esc (no other keys are workind) which open menu where I "can" boot to BIOS. So I press F1 menu dissapears but I end up with same PXE-E61 error. Any advice how to enter BIOS and change it back to UEFI mode ? thanks

hi nonesofar13,
Welcome to the Forums.
The B590 (6274) does support an SSD and you can opt to get a 2.5" or an mSATA form factor.
- Sample items
- Sample items
Since you already have a HDD, you can try to get an mSATA SSD and make it as your boot drive and just make the HDD a storage drive (i.e., For picture, movies, etc.).
 - Sample image
Alternatively, you can just replace the HDD with a 2.5" SSD and optionally get an caddy or a SATA enclosure to convert the HDD as an external drive.

Well in the old days we had the boot disk that we'd insert if we wanted to boot up to DOS. But I've gone stupid on how to do that in Windows 7.

I have a bios update that I want to install. Here are the instructions that I received but step 4 reads "Boot the system to DOS by using the bootable device." I'm not sure how to do that. It instructs you to put it on a USB key, but when I boot to the key I get the message "No operating system found." So there must be a step to make the device bootable?

Any insight? Here are the full instructions that I got when I downloaded the updated bios.

Thanks, Greg

NOTE: You must provide a DOS bootable media, such as a USB key. This executable file does not create the DOS system files.
1. Browse to the location where you downloaded the file.
2. Update the name of the file to DOS recognizable format (8.3). If you do not update the filename to 8.3 format, the filename will be truncated to 8.3 format.
3. Copy the file to the bootable device.
4. Boot the system to DOS by using the bootable device.
5. Run the executable under DOS. Follow the instructions provided by the flash utility.

Hi all.. So these are two problems that can be related to each other. BIOS and graphics card. So I just bought a new graphics card which is the ZOTAC GTX 1050 (doesn't require extra power)for my HP Pro 3330 MT Desktop PC, 300 Watt PSU.Installed the card on my motherboard, made sure i inserted it well into my PCI EX 16, started the computer, heard beeps with about 30 seconds interval for each beep with the following screens: 1. The HP LogoThis logo takes so long.  And pressing "ESC" does nothing.  Then after 5 beeps it goes black, and another 5 or 6 beeps when it's black, I'm not sure.  2. The Windows Logo appeared, but with a wrong alignment, not on the center.The screen is cropped. You can see the loading circle is cropped.  3. The Windows 10 Login Screen, but messed up picture.I can login and can shut down using the ALT+F4 keyboard shortcut.  But the display is like that.First I thought it might be my monitor, or my HDMI to VGA converter.  So I tried using my TV directly with an HDMI cable, no converter, same problem.  Before I blame my video card, which I doubt nothing is wrong with it, I would like to do everything I can from the computer first. So I tried downloading BIOS update from here:HP Pro 3330 Microtower downloadsI chose:HP Compaq Business Desktop ROMPaq Firmware (ROM Family 17A0 NetClone) (International) 71.08 Rev.

A:Portege 3410 - How to update BIOS and install XP?


Just one question: Why do you want to update the BIOS? Is it really necessary?
I ask this because this update is always a little bit risky and you could damage the ROM module.
Anyway, have you tried to load default settings in BIOS before you start the update and install XP?

You can install XP without CD. Therefore you must copy the i386 folder on the HDD from another computer and some booting files for HDD? I think you should search a little bit with Google to find workaround for this. You should find enough! ;)

Hi All -
I am trying to install the XPS_9550_1.2.19 bios update for the XPS 9550 and I get an error message saying "Error validating password" when I try to run the installer. I've tried rebooting several times. None of the hardware has been modified on the device, and all the parts are original, same as they shipped with. The laptop is less than 2 months old. 
The service tag IS set in the BIOS, and there is no BIOS password configured.
Additionally - I am seeing 3 minute boot times, this is not an exaggeration, typically between 180 and 210 seconds from power on to Windows desktop and this is on a CLEAN install of the latest insider preview after wiping the drive. Admittedly I am running the Windows Insider builds, but I have to due to a program I wrote for work that requires the Linux Subsystem for Windows stuff and the released version in the AU version of Windows 10 is missing too many features to make what I made work. I have checked that all drivers are installed and are on the latest versions. This one has the 512GB XG4 Toshiba M2 PCIE SSD.

Hi, I was doing a fresh install for a friend because her laptop would crash if the screen was closed and noticed she was running v1.0 bios on her Toshiba C50-b-14d laptop. I downloaded the newest version 5.1 from the official site and upgraded the bios. When I installed W10 it would install, and then freeze after the restart. I tried booting in safe but it said I couldn't because windows couldn't complete the install in safe mode. I tried to install again multiple times and the same problem every time.
I went into the bios and changed from CMS to UEFI and reinstalled. This time after the restart it got to the 'Getting Devices ready' screen and froze at 10%.
I have no idea what to try next. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Multiple problems with W10 install after BIOS update

Ends up that the Wifi card has trouble with new bios. Putting the laptop into Airplane mode got the install to finish. That's another problem but I can proceed from here.

I've downloaded the bios update QF750B200_EC120_WIN.exe for my F750 and when I attempted to run the update, it fails & I received the message:

"The AC adapter is not connected, or battery power is not enough.
Please connect the AC adapter, and charge the battery."

However the AC adapter is connected & the battery is also fully charged. Does anyone have any ideas for making this work?


A:Cannot install BIOS update for my Qosmio F750

Hi again,

I've solved it but thought I'd put the solution here in case anyone else had a similar problem. Basically I had to:

1 - Uninstall "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" using Device Manager
2 - In Device Manger, go to Action>Scan For Hardware Changes
3 - Close Lid & Remove Battery
4 - Reboot without battery
5 - Insert battery

That seemed to sort it out so it was probably a problem witth the ACPI-Compiant Control Method Battery Driver or something like that. I think I'd disabled it & re-enabled it a while back so something probably went awry then.

I've tried to install this update multiple times. Both from HP  Support Assistant and after downloading the file directly from your support page and installed it as an administrator. After restart, the update is still visible in the Support Assistant.

The HP Support Assistant executable refuses to install the HP Consumer Desktop PC BIOS Update no matter how long I leave it running. The most I get is this window.  It hangs on this screen with out any progression. I've had this running for about 4 to 6 hours by now. I've just bought this computer two days ago and everything has been really slow and overall unreliable. I don't know if out-of-the-box All-in-Ones being unbelievably unresponsive are the norm for HP computers, but if that's the case, I'm just about ready to send mines back right now.
