Q: T470 update utility error

I'm trying to change the Lenovo image that appears when booting the device, I'm using the BIOS Update Utility for Windows 10.When I try to run the program with the new image file in the folder I get a warning saying something about a secure rollback prevention, do I need to disable the prevention or is there something else I should do?

Preferred Solution: T470 update utility error

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.)

I have a T470S type 20HF running windows 10 (version 1703) that suddenly the Intel Thunderbolt Driver was updated and gives me the error "A Thunderbolt controller has experienced a problem and cannot connect to devices or other computers until new firmware is installed." The computer is connected through a usb-c cable to a dockin station which has two monitors connected through display port cables. I tried uninstalling the Intel Tunderbolt Software (ver. 17.4.78.500) and reinstalling it.I tried installing thinkpad thunderbolt 3 dock and usc-c dock driver v10017.I tried to install new firmware with the file N1WTH07W but it says "cannot find correct bin file" I still get the same error and cannot use the monitors connected to the docking station. Please help.

When I press continue so the update restarts like it suppose to when it updates then after a few seconds later my computers gets missing file /grldr.mbr error and then a status 0XC0000098 then my computer reloads and ask me if I want to run m4 ssd and from the look of it it looks like the update went though. But that leaves me with the error and missing files or maybe corrupted files?

A:m4 SSD firmware update utility 0309 error 0XC0000098

I just read a bit about this because I bought an M4, with v0309. Latest is v000F.
Some people had problems. Google how to see what version you have from within Windows.
It's basically click on computer, right click the M4 drive, properties, hardware, select the M4 drive, properties, details, then select hardware id from the fropdown list. You'll see your version repeated 3 times there.
I decided not to update because I don't see benefits in the update. I'll look closer later.
People who had similar issue as you seemed to have a good update.
Look at the Crucial site for more details.

Windows Update is not telling me I need or can update my Wireless networking, but Intel's Update Driver Utility says I should and is offering the update. How would you recommend I proceed?

A:Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

G'day Rolo,

The difference between the two drivers is that the Windows one is digital signed/tested by Microsoft. I would say that unless the Intel one delivers more benefit than the Windows one, and everything works as expected, then there is no need to update.

You often see this with graphics card drivers too, for example.

I have a T470 20HD running Windows 10 Pro. Both the operating system and all Lenovo updates have been applied. Attached to thos is a Plugable-brand USB3 dual HDMI docking station that's been driving a pair of Dell SE2417HG(HDMI2) screens. Or did, until I did the Integrated Firmware of Thunderbolt Function 1.0.12.0-N1QTF16W update, at which point it now only drives a single screen. Windows sees both displays but now can't use one. I've tested both displays and they work fine otherwise, and if I unplug one display the dock will "fail over" to the other display without an issue.Is there a way to roll back this firmware update, or am I basically out of luck?

Double check that you are using the proper BIOS for the T470 and run a checksum on the file to make sure it is not corrupt (The checksums are supplied when you click on the Readme icon).  With something as critical as the BIOS I always check the checksum.

As the title says, top right USB port on my T470 doesn't work after BIOS v1.42 update when device is plugged in on boot.  Non of devices power up when plugged into that port. Naturally there's nothing in dmesg. This is not OS-dependent since devices don't power up in BIOS screen as well. The other 2 ports still work as expected. Restarting doesn't help. After some cold boots the ports starts working again. This never happened with previous BIOS versions.

Hi, last week I received my new T470; everything fine until yesterday when, after enabling virtualization support when running on battery, I received the infamous "2100: Detection error on HDD0". Power off and on again and the system booted correctly. After a couple of hours I left the pc for ten minutes or so and I wasn't able to wake it up: power light was on but tapping on keys or touchpad didn't wake the laptop up. Power off and a second "2100"; this time turning the pc off and on didn't do the trick... I thought the issue could be related to the virtualization settings I had enabled, so I entered the BIOS and disabled virtualization. Bingo, the pc booted! So, just to be sure that it was the root cause of the problem, I re-enabled it.. but everything went fine!  From then I'm not able to reproduce the issue anymore, but my OCD (and my colleagues, that kept saying I should have bought a Mac) is telling me that I have to fix this.

Not good... You might try going int to the BIOS and resetting it to the setup defaults... but if you are getting a BSOD even when booting from a recovery DVD, you can rule out device drivers or a corrupted Windows OS installation as the cause, so that pretty much leaves only one other possibility, which would be bad hardware such as a bad CPU or system board etc..    Since it is under warranty, I would call support at 877-453-6686 and open a ticket.       Best of Luck,

Just a general question that I didn't find with a Search --

Does anyone know of a good Utility program that scans your system and applications and then updates all of your drivers, etc. automatically? I know there's something called "Oil Change" but I think that is more of an application updater, isn't it?

Nothing critical, would just like suggestions. BTW, I'm currently using Win98Se but looking at upgrading to XP.

Have a great day all!!
 

A:Driver Update Utility?

I just use the online updates at Microsoft's site:

http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

They have a section for drivers to. It's good if your upgrading from 98SE to XP. XP should be better for you, and easier. Except all the updates you have to keep downloading.

I downloaded and ran the Intel (R) Driver Update Utility on my ASUS X54C Laptop which is running Win 8.1

I found it at: Intel® Driver Update Utility

I ran the utility and the utility found two updates which I downloaded as per the screenshot below.

My questions are

(1) .. should I install these two updates?
(2) .. is there any risk in installing the updates?

I should mention that I have not had any problems with my laptop and am wondering if I should leave well alone?

A:Intel (R) Driver Update Utility

The Intel driver update utility is safe. These are Generic drivers though, if your not experiencing any problems there's no need to download them if your X54C came with windows 8. The version changes are minimal the chipset for example is for newer hardware(the x54c is at least 3 years old) and the HD graphic are changes for specific video games/screen hardware. Because they are generic drivers provided from Intel and have not been cleared through ASUS there is always a minimal(however small) possibility that it might cause problems and have to roll back which is easy(happened to me once). Best is to go here and see if there are any updates.

Hello Trader,

Updating drivers can increase your performance some, fix bugs in the previous driver version, or may add a feature. Sometimes a updated driver may cause a problem as well, but not to often.

To be safe, I would recommend to create a restore point before updating your drivers. This way if it does cause a issue, you can always do a system restore back to that restore point to undo it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have a Thinkpad T520 (4239) that I just upgraded to Windows 8. I was not able to upgrade from a DVD; I had to use a USB flash drive to upgrade. I'm thinking maybe the problem was that the HLDS GT33N DVD drive did not have the latest firmware; it looks like its firmware version is LT20. On the Lenovo Drivers and Software page for the T520, there is a DVD Firmware Update Utility for Windows XP, Vista, 7 (fwsb10.zip). The README does not mention Windows 8. Can the utility be used on Windows 8? If not, when will a utility for Windows 8 be available? Thanks.

If you do try it I would run it in Windows 7 Compatibility mode. The chances are higher that it will work. I have the same 4239 but a different DVD drive, Sony model and never release new firmware for it. I don't see why that would prevent you from reading a DVD it burned or OEM pressed DVD.

Recentrly I have updated (via Service Station) to ECO Utility 3.0.1.6403. After that the option to switch power schemes with Fn-F2 has disapperead from FlashCards completely. I'm no longer able to switch power schemes with Fn-F2.

I also downloaded the ECO utility (3.0.1) installer directly from Toshiba support pages and reinstalled it manually once again, no change.


How can I get Fn-F2 back?
Thanks.

After the Win 10 system upgrade, you have to update also the drivers to Windows 10 compatible version…

The drivers can be found on this page:

Sorry, I'm from somewhere in the middle of Europe and I can't speak English so well.

I have this problem: After updating eco Utility in my laptop and its restarting and then every time I start my laptop it just shows: System failure: TecoResident.exe can't start because there is TecoPower.dll missing. I read that this file is very important, but my laptop is actually still working quite well. So PLEASE: What do I have to do? Thanks a lot for answers ...

When checking HP Total Care Adviser - PC Health & Security I found I had one critcal message. HP Update Software Utility.

Can someone tell me how to fix it. When I click run, nothing happens. When I try to click close, nothing happens. I tried looking up help and it said to click the green arrow to the right of the description. I did not see any arrow. I had to press control, alt and delete to escape.

Is there a solution?

When I run the subject program (have latest version - 2.4), the scan tells me my graphics driver (for Win 7, 64-bit) is currently version 10.18.10.4358 and that a newer version, 15.33.42.4385, is available. I click the [Download] button, and it downloads a 124MB file. Then the [Install} button lights up. I click it, it goes thru the motions, but when it finally starts installing, it says it's installing ver. 10.18.10.4358 ! And sure enough, after the install finishes and I reboot the computer, when I do another scan it says I have version 10.18.10.4358 and 15.33.42.4358 is an available update.

What's wrong?

I have using DriverMax for the past year and I find it to be usefully as long as you watch which drivers you are updating. Some times driver updated are shown for a device but that device isn't apart of your system. Or DriverMax will show an update for a device that is in your system but the driver may cause BSoD. How do you keep your drivers updated? does anybody know of a good website database to track driver versions?
 

A:Do You Use a Windows Driver Update Utility?

I think these software like driver apps are not so good for your device they installed another applications and change many settings. So good it not use any driver updater utility. Follow this link to check from windows default service
