Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

Q: Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

Hi. After upgrading BIOS to 2.12 the CPU frequency is locked to the lowest possible (disregarding BIOS settings). Plugging in the battery makes it work again.For the sake of prolonging my battery life I ususally run without it when safely docked at home.Anyone else experiencing this? I assume it's a bug?

Preferred Solution: Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

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.)

A: Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

It sounds like a bug might have been fixed. I would expect it to slow down if you had just a battery (no A/C) or just A/C (no battery). The charhing circuity won't "cook" the battery. It will stop charging when it is fully charged.

I was at Goodwill yesterday and I found an ECS K7SEM v1.0 motherboard for $6. Assuming that it works, I wouldn't mind getting an AMD cpu and some RAM to get this going as a multi-purpose additional computer for my apartment.

The original intent of this board was for AMD processor running at either 100Mhz or 133Mhz FSB. The manual for the motherboard says that the RAM speed cannot be less than the processor FSB. For example: according to the manual, if the CPU has a FSB of 133Mhz, then PC133 RAM must be used and PC100 RAM cannot be used. If a CPU has a FSB of 100Mhz, then either PC100 or PC133 RAM can be used, but not PC66.

This manual was printed in 2001. However, in 2002/2003, a new BIOS upgrade was created for this board to allow support for Athalon XP 2100 and 2200 processors.

I was looking at an AMD XP processor at newegg and realized that the FSB is 266Mhz, according to the specs. I always get confused about FSB ratings. Are you supposed to divide this number by 2 with AMD chips? Like if the FSB is 266Mhz, should I use PC133 RAM to be compliant with the statement in the manual about using RAM that matches or exceeds the CPU FSB?

Another question I had is related to the new BIOS update that supports the newer processors. Would I need to use an old processor in order to update the BIOS before I can use the XP processor? Or will I be able to update to the XP supporting BIOS with the XP processor already in the socket?

If everything goes smooth... Read more

A:CPU FSB frequency and RAM frequency agreement, and BIOS CPU support.

When an AthlonXP is advertised with a 266mhz FSB, it is actually running at 133mhz but its DDR nature makes it run as fast as a 266mhz FSB. Any 266mhz AthlonXP should work on that board provided it isn't above the 2200+ ( 1800mhz ).

BIOS updates to my ThinkPad T460p seem to have been fine, up until going from 2.19 to 2.20.  Upon trying to upgrade to 2.20, I get the following message:  I cannot boot from USB key, I get the same issue.  This includes attempting with an older BIOS like 2.18; the same error message occurs even when not in Windows. Is there a way to force-flash the BIOS to get it back on track or is there some option I can try?  I only have a few remaining days left on my warranty, so I don't have much time left to open a support case if there's nothing else I can do other than replace the mainboard.

Call support.  Whatever happens, you should get the issue documented while the system is under warranty.  In U.S., the number is 1-800-426-7378

If the machine will run with just the power adapter, Why not .Your main concern is that you have power completely through the flash cycle. You would not Flash bios without being plugged in anyway.

Hello guys,
I have a DELL XPS M1530, and I have 2 batteries.
last week I decided to try windows 7, and I took the chance and downloaded all the updated drivers, including the BIOS.

Once the computer was working OK, I noticed that my battery level only goes down. it was not charging with the AC power plugged. when the battery was at 0% I thought it was some problem with the battery, So I got my spare one... and happened exactly the same thing.

Now I look at the battery icon on the bottom right, and it says "0% available (Plugged in, not charging)"

do you have any ideia what is going on?

After upgrading the BIOS, I am having an issue with my battery. I finally got around to troubleshooting an outstanding issue with my RAM (It was maxing out at 10 of my 20gb of RAM), I found that updating my BIOS resolved the issue. I purchased the laptop in May 2016, and this was the first time I had updated my BIOS. I used Lenovo Solution Center / Vantage to run the updates. I updated my BIOS to N1CET68W (6/20/18). While troubleshooting I ran battery report, and I don't think it is a coincidence that the date I updated the BIOS on is also the date at which one of my batteries stopped working - Attached with a line drawn for when I updated the BIOS. My battery now caps out at 62%. Battery 1: 68% and charging. Battery 2: 0%. Battery 2 will not charge any more. Battery 1: 00HW022, Sanyo. Design Capacity: 23510 mWh, full charge capacity: 17840mWh (Acceptable degradation for 2 year old battery)Battery 2: 01AV406, SMP. Design Capacity: 26060 mWh, full charge capacity: 1770mWh (Significant drop-off once BIOS updated). I have already performed laptop surgery and made sure both batteries are connected. Unplugged both of them, and hard reset my laptop (holding power button for ~2 minutes with batteries out). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and then updating them. Windows 10 x64.

Hi.  I bought this laptop just over a year ago and have generally had good experience with it.  My only issue has been with the battery.  When I first started using it, the battery would last about 10 hours which became 4 hours a few months later.  I decided to buy a new battery (thinking it was a faulty battery), and it did the same thing.  I got in touch with Lenovo tech while it was still under warranty, and they tried a few things on my laptop (remotely) but couldn't resolve the issue.  Now I have two batteries that last just about 3-4 hours on full charge.  It is really frustrating since one of the major selling points for me was the advertised battery life. If anyone has any experience or expertise with this, and can help in any way... please DO   I would like to know if there's anything I can do to diagnose the issue and/or fix it? Thanks/Sam

I allowed the BIOS to be updated from Lenovo Vantage, as I have done so many times before.The laptop rebooted, the process started and then rebooted again. Unfortunately my eyes were not bolted on the screen, and while I'm confident it rebooted after it finished flashing, I did not actually see the very last dash before the reboot. Now the laptop POSTS (Lenovo logo + Enter key to enter bios) and after that it reboots and it starts over.I can still enter the bios, my password and my fingerprint both work fine. I reset to default,played with all available security options, tried performance on/off, but the laptop goes straight to reboot. I enabled the diagnostic boot, and I can see no error messages, the laptop posts normally, then I have a brief notification that says "ThinkVantage Active Protection sensor diagnostics start" and after that it restarts.I cannot enter the diagnostic utility (F10). Either from the bios screen or straight from the Lenovo logo with F10, or from the screen after I press Enter, if I chose the diagnostic utility, all it does is a reboot. Any ideas what else I can do? The laptop is still under warranty, but I'd hate to have to send it away (I'm in the UK) for repair if I could do something to revive it myself. Also, T460p users, any experiences with this bios version? Thank you!

I have a ThinkPad T460P. Some time ago it fell off to the side of couch while plugged in and bent the adapter / end of charger insert upon impact. After i would receive a "plugged in but not charging" message. I could still get this machine to charge if i closed it and inserted the charger, let it sit, and then open. Somewhat inconsistent but it worked. Finally the other day i was running a video and the battery drained completely without realizing it was not charging. I received a critically low battery message. Charger no longer worked and machine would not turn on. I bought a new 90W charger to see if it would do the trick. When i plug this in, the light above the thinkpad sign and also the light in power button flashes 3 times but then nothing else. Normally this light would strobe. The charger appears to work as the light near the port has gone from yellow to green. But the machine no longer turns on. Sometimes i can get it to flash when pressing the power but nothing. Also tried a number of tricks like taking the battery out, holding the power button for a while, putting all back in and trying again. Machine will also not turn on when plugged in without the battery in. Thoughts? Am i cooked here?

Often time, the fan will start to run as soon as the laptop is turned on. It's quite annoying because of the fan noise (even though it's not so loud), and I'm sure it will cause more battery consumption.  Recently I upgraded to the latest v1.24 BIOS, but the problem was still the same. Anybody has the same issue?

I am new to a ThinkPad with fingerprint reader, but not to ThinkPads. Running Windows 7 64-bit. In Windows I installed the Lenovo Touch Fingerprint Software. I enrolled my fingerprints. Windows: It works well with Windows. Instead of logging in to Windows with password I can use the fingerprint. Next to deleting fingerprint data, only option I have in Settings is "Enable pre-boot authentication". Seems when I have this enabled, that windows will automatically log-in (not asking for password or fingerprint) if I used fingerprint to boot-up the computer during boot-time (enabled via BIOS). Boot/BIOS: I am a bit unsure how exactly this is configured via the BIOS. Only when I enable "boot password required" I will be asked to scan my fingerprint (or type the password). I assume it's meant this way. If boot password is disabled, I am not asked for the fingerprint at all. With boot password enabled, and that's strange to me, it would first ask me to scan the fingerprint and when I did so successfully, it will still require the password as well. I first scan my fingerprint, it gets a green checkmark (= success), then it shows the password icon, and next to it a hand which is crossed out, then a moment later I need to enter the password. Is it meant this way? Or should it be password OR fingerprint? Summary of settings (by choice): In Lenovo Touch Fingerprint Software i disabled "pre-boot authetication". This way I still need to ...

Hello,
A week or two ago, I started seeing a pop-up appear on my Inspiron screen (I run Windows 8). The pop-up said that the AC adapter was not recognized, and therefore, the battery would not charge. It was the same 65W adapter that came with the laptop. I hit F2 at startup to check the BIOS, and it said the adapter wasn't recognized. I decided to order a new adapter. While I waited for it to arrive, the battery gradually drained down, but the laptop continued to work while plugged in.
The new adapter came today, an official Dell adapter. I plugged it in... Same error message. Adapter not recognized.
I ran a check on the battery; the system says the battery is fine. I pulled the battery, and the laptop still worked via the adapter. I jiggled and checked all the connections. Couldn't find an issue and couldn't make it work.
I checked the BIOS version and date, and it's from 2013. Time for an update! I downloaded the latest version, but here's the problem: It won't install without the battery sitting at at least a 10% charge. The battery, of course, won't charge with either adapter (it's reading at 1% now). So I can't update the BIOS without some battery life, but I can't make it recognize the adapter and charge the battery without the updated BIOS (assuming that's even the problem, but I'm hopeful that's all it is).
If anyone has any suggestions for how I might make this work, I would very much appreciate it! Thank you!!!

A:Catch-22: No BIOS updated without battery, no battery life without BIOS update...

Please list Dell model number and version of windows. Ex: Dell Inspiron 3543, windows 10
If you don't know, type msinfo32 onto the search box, and then look for System model.....
In the meantime, please check the USB port, where the AC adapter is plugged into system, is loose. You could also wiggle the Adapter's end while checking it in the BIOS to see if the Adapter's type appears.

Or is it more technologially involved than that, like bios, space and other such? Also, the T460P has 4g RAM soldered in, yet one can upgrade to 32g involving 2 - 16g sticks, this does mean that the 4g is diabled with the 2 sticks installed, correct? TIA - bo1953

But there is an issue on specifying the suitable type of storage.My device is equipped with the Toshiba NVMe drive named THNSF5256GCJ7, which looks like a standard 7mm SATA3 SSD (for my knowledge, it is a very weird combination). Though  I searched the appropriate replacement for that model in both shape and communication interface, there seems no model with such specs.  Seeing the slot shape, I think it would be okay to set a SATA3 interface SSD, however, the word 'NVMe' makes me completely confused.  Does anyone know what model will be appropriate for my T460p?For your understanding, I attached the screen capture of HWINFO64 summary. Many thanks in advance.

If I use my notebook with the power adapter I have no problems. In battery operation it starts to make a high frequency tone, thats pulsing every second.I already send it to Lenovo to repair, but I got it back as it was before: "its in lenovo specification"This noise makes my crazy. It's like a tinnitus. I never had that problem with any other notebook. I also tested it with different kind of people: Children and youg poeple hear it, older people dont hear ist.So maybe lenovo empleyee is too old or they don't want to repair? What can I do, because this is not ok. Note: I mean not the voice of the power adapter. But If you compare with that:The voice, its louder, pulsative and higher. It comes out inside of the notebook. So it kills me...

Hoping that someone on this forum can help me. I have a 1 yr old thinkpad T460p which is refusing to boot at all after setting Intel AMT to be disabled in BIOS - its bricked. After making this change, laptop rebooted and displayed message "unconfiguring..." After that, it went to just a white cursor in the top left corner that doesn't flash. I left it for5 minutes or so before trying to reboot and now... I can't get anything except this white cursor. The machine still seems responsive - I can turn keyboard locks on and off and if I do control alt delete I see the screen flash and then come back to the cursor so it is definitely rebooting. I've tried rebooting and holding down F1, F8 as well as pretty much every other key on the keyboard. I've taken out battery and AC, held power for 30 seconds then plugged back in and its still stuck! Does anyone have an idea how to get this laptop to boot again? I can't enter BIOS at all, just this white cursor in the corner of the screen.   

A:help! thinkpad t460p bricked after disabling intel AMT - no BIOS/UEFI

First, do you have warranty remaining?  If yes, call for service; don't take it apart.
 
If no, do the same thing you did (remove battery, etc.) plus disconnect the coin-cell (CMOS) battery.  You remove the back cover and it is to the lower right.  Let it sit for 30 seconds before putting it back together.  This will reset the BIOS to default settings.  DON'T DO THIS IF YOU HAVE A SUPERVISOR (BIOS) PASSWORD THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW.

Hi, does anobody have a clue why Lenovo ThinkPad T460p BIOS 2.23 (and maybe previous versions too) does not contain SLIC table?Without SLIC it is impossible to activate Windows 7. How Lenovo activates Windows from recovery media if there is no SLIC table present? Greets,   Jan

Hello, I am a Photographer. The T460p with my current 1920*1080 panel just covers after calibrating 37 percent of the Adobe RGB. The T460p is sold by a 2560*1440 panel which covers until 70 percent of the Adobe RGB is perfect. I don't want to buy a new Notebook so I would like to change the panels.  My current panel LGD0521 (LP140WF6-SPB4) got a 30 pin connector.The 1440p panel 00HN878 has a 40 pin connector. So does not fit. But if ich replace the 30 pin cabel (01AV916) to a 40 pin (01AV915) cable it should work in my point of view. Or do I have to replace more than just this two parts? Is there anybody how knows something or got excpirience in this kind of problem? Thank youDominik

On my t460p, the wifi was very stable connecting to all networks whether 2.4 or 5ghz. After the latest Lenovo update to driver 20.30 via the system update, 5ghz networks now take ages to connect and sometimes fail to connect. This is on 2 routers used all the time and previously were very stable. I tried installing the latest intel drivers, 20.50 and they also had this issue. The routers are a BT hub and an Archer D2 so it is safe to say the issue is with the laptop not the router. How can I report this as a bug to lenovo ? Also, I would like to now install the previous drivers but I cannot find them on the lenovo website, does someone know how I can find them ? (I cannot just do windows rollback driver since I have installed the intel ones)
