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.)

I have applied the latest (8/29/2018 version) of the ThinkCentre BIOS Update for M93p Tiny PCs to ten machines.On three of the machines, the BIOS update attempted to first update the Embedded Controller Firmware.Two of those Embedded Controller Firmware updates failed the 'Verify' step after firmware programming, and then got stuck in a loop re-trying. I killed the process while it was in a 5 second wait state and restarted the BIOS update. This time, it bypassed the Embedded Controller Firmware update thinking that was okay, and proceeded to successfully update the BIOS. However, those machines that had the 'verfy' issue when flashing the Embedded Controller Firmware now suffer from a 25-30 second pause/delay during the Windows 10 boot up process, and also when shutting down. Even worse, coming out of 'Sleep' also has a 25-30 second pause/delay! Looking at the Autoexec.bat file on the USB drive used to perform the BIOS updates, it executes the following to update the Embedded Controller Firmware: SPI042 FBCT32A.bin /V 32A This step does nothing if it determines that the Embedded Controller Firmware does not need updating. QUESTION: Is there anyway to force a re-flashing of the Embedded Controller Firmware, such as a '-force' switch for SPI042?

I updated my two Yoga laptops this wee on two different days. I noticed that after the update my yoga mouse couldn't pair (connect) to each computer.  There was no issue before the update. Because it happened with both computers, I suspect there is an issue with the update. I came to the Forum and the new support Lenovo system to see if others have the same issue but I don't see any post related to this topic nor an updated driver for the Yoga Mouse. Are you having the same issue? Did you solve it? How?

Hello. Back story, our company has purchased and now rolled out our Lenovo X1 Yoga laptops (model 20FQ).  During the rollout, we installed all of the drivers from lenovo's site via the MDT driver package and then deployed the latest System Inteface Foundation so we could install teh Lenovo Settings app later down the road via the Windows 10 App store.   We have not installed the lenovo settings or lenovo companion apps from the store but are now receiving reports of users getting a message from "Lenovo Companion" that an update is available.  The update that is available is an Intel ME firmware update.  Is there a way to disable or prevent these updates from pushing to users via registry or configuration file?

A:X1 Yoga and Intel ME Firmware update being pushed but how?

Lenovo System Interface Foundation (LSIF) is doing this.  The only purpose of this app is to support Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion, so if you don't install these apps, there is no point to install LSIF.  One of the features of LSIF is to automatically install "critical" updates for Lenovo software and drivers, such as this recent Intel ME Firware update.
 
The Deployment Guide for Lenovo Settings and/or Companion explains this feature and how to disable it:  https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/hf003321
 
I have copied-and-pasted the relevent section below:
 
Chapter 4. Considerations for Deployment
 
Lenovo System Interface Foundation contains some features which may not be appropriate for enterprise customers.  Please read this section carefully to understand these features and consider whether they should be disabled in your specific environment. 
 
1.  Automatic Updates ? Lenovo System Interface Foundation updates itself automatically whenever a new version is posted to the Lenovo website. Some IT organizations will want to disable this.  The automatic update can be disabled by registry.  To do so, copy-and-paste the below text into a .reg file and then import it into your registry:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Lenovo\ImController]

I'm not sure this issue will get to who it needs to, but I have found a couple of issues with the Yoga C630 WOS Firmware version 1.33. First is that it no longer boots off of USB keys that are larger than 32GB without a little... help...  If you put 2 USB keys that are larger than 32GB in (so 1 in each USB port), then the one on the left side (sim card, power led) will show up as "UEFI: USB Hard Drive", whereas the one on the right (headphone jack, power button) will show up as "UEFI: USB USB Hard Drive" and it will boot from the device in the left port.If only 1 USB key larger than 32GB is plugged in, it shows up as "UEFI: USB USB Hard Drive" and will not boot from it, even when selecting it with the boot prompt.  It simply boots into Windows.  Booting from a 128GB or even 256GB USB key was possible without the hoops of connecting multiple devices on the 1.23 firmware, so it would be nice if whatever change was made that makes this not work, could be reverted? The second (possible) issue is that virtualization support isn't turned on.  This is unfortunate as it means that WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux version2) is not supported on the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS device, whereas the Samsung Galaxybook2 which has a firmware dated the same DOES have the support turned on, and WSL2 works on it.  It would be nice if the developers behind the firmware could enable the support.  I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, or how to get these...

It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of."I've tried "Update Driver" but everytime with this same result.I've also tried "Uninstall Device". But then it goes back to a driver from 2006 (indeed the error is gone) and when I update the driver, the error is back. I've also downloaded the bios update file, and if I run it again it says I'm trying to install the same version that is already installed, so there is no need. So this indicates is did install. However, the error message under Device manager is there... Does anyone have a suggestion what could be going on?(I think the bios update, which just a few days back became available, is related to certain security problems that Intel was having...)

Hi all, Yesterday when I turned on the computer and logged in into windows, a warning-window poped-up asking for recomended "Firmware Update" by Lenovo. I ve proceeded with the update. After an intall-restart I wasn't able to log in with my fingerprint anymore. After a small investigation I've realized that are now three devices with problems (Code 31) in my device manager.The devices are:Biometric Devices - Synaptics WBDI - SGXSensors - HID Sensor Collection V2System Devices - System Interface Foundation V2 DeviceSo, besides the FingerPrint, I'm not able to use the Auto-Rotate (when turning the lid into tablet or tent mode) feature and the Lenovo Vantage Software since it asks me to update the System Interface Foundation Driver. What I have tried so far:Reinstall (since I can't rollback) the Firmware Driver: "Type C Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 920-13IKB, Yoga 920-13IKB Glass 1.3" (since there isn't a lower version to roll back)Reinstall all drivers from Lenovo web-page (FingerPrint, System Interface Foundation, Chipset, Display, Audio, etc)And finally, Reinstall the operating system Windows 10 64 using system restore I've not clue what to do next and I'm really avoiding opening an RMA. Please help me. Thank you.

Argh. Ever since I installed the Lenovo NVMe Solid State Drive Firmware v36 as recommended by Lenovo Vantage on 25 January 2020, I've started getting bluescreens.  The laptop will also sometimes complain about M.2 problems at startup.  Just now, my laptop went into a loop of bluescreens at startup while I had my USB-C dock from ALogic plugged in (which connects my external monitor, Focusrite USB Audio Interface, and my Lenovo USB power adaptor... things I really need to use). Drive performance seems to have taken a nosedive since that NVMe firmware update, apps occasionally seem to lock up while waiting on drive IO. I didn't have any of these problems before updating to the v36 NVMe firmware, or the associated v1.38 BIOS / Intelligent Thermal Solution Driver v1.0.1.335 / Power Management Driver v1.67.17.48 releases that all came through Vantage on that same day.  I only updated because of all the news media stories about Lenovo's fixes for critical ThinkPad USB-C problems, but frankly I didn't have any of these problems until I installed the patches from Vantage. I feel like these patches gave me the problems it was meant to avoid! Hopefully Lenovo is aware of the problems and seeing the bluescreen telemetry trickle in?

I did some updates on my Yoga and now my touchscreen no longer works. I have gone to the device manager and updated and checked on it. No luck. My pen works, but the finger touch does not. Nothing else seems to have happened to my computer past the updates. It seems like others seem to have this problem since updating their computers. My computer is no longer under warranty, and since I bought this thing for its touchscreen, I am a little choked that it has gone kaput. Would it have been the update that caused it, or would it have been just a case of it went kaputsky at the same time and it is a mere coincidence? Either way, I am really upset that this machine is broken so soon. Any idea if there is going to be an update to fix this or if it is now just blown?

Hello,     I was recently prompted to install the following updates but I am unsure as to what they mean and if it is absolutely necessary/recommended to install them. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.  Edit: My BIOS update also asked me to choose from two options: Update BIOS or Update Model number.  I have updated neither as I am unsure what it means and why I see that message. Can someone please tell me what it means? Thank you.
