M55 latest bios flash --- any newer CPU support?

Q: M55 latest bios flash --- any newer CPU support?

I have an M55 8810 with a Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86 GHz CPU. The latest bios flash for my machine is dated January 09. There is a lot of information concerning bug fixes, etc. Is there any additional CPU support for the motherboard? I'm currently relying on the parts list for the model and motherboard as a guide for upgrades. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: M55 latest bios flash --- any newer CPU support?

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.)

There's no way of telling whether Lenovo added support for more processors.

I have got a ThinkCentre M83 SFF Pro Type 10AN-S02E00 that has been working for three years on the original BIOS from the year 2014, probably version FBKT74A or so. This week I moved to Windows 10 and decided to also update BIOS to the latest version, since FBKTB4A "added Win10 support" according to changes.txt, and also there has been important security fixes regarding Intel ME, so I downloaded the latest version FBKTCLA and run the update.The problem is, I know there are two parts in updating the BIOS on these systems (I also got an M93p Tiny), and in my case the first part (afudos.exe imagefb.rom /p /r) runs OK (erasing,updating and verifying main block), but the second part (afudos.exe imagefb.rom /defans /capsule /b /n /r /sp) fails right before erasing giving me15 - Error: Secure Flash function is not supported on this platformand after that no reboot and no second part of the update.After this my system boots OK and BIOS version is reported as FBKTCLA with BIOS date 11/17/2017, butboot block is FB72Aembedded controller is FBCT13ACPU microcode is 306C3_00000017 (08/16/2013)ME version is 9.0.20.1447UEFI diagnostic tool is v. 02.09.09Intel VBIOS version 1030So I got the newest BIOS, VBIOS and newest UEFI diagnostic tool but still got old boot block (should be FBCLA), EC (should be FBCT32A), CPU microcode (should be 306C3_00000021 05/10/2016) and ME firmware (should be 9.1.41.3024)The system works and I have no problems with my Windows 10 install, luckily th...

Hey TSG..!

Recently my HP Compaq Presario V6109AU notebook has been overheating badly - and the fan never (or rarely) kicks in..

I looked around to see if this was a common problem - I found this:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us

There's a lot talking about updating to the "latest" VF.3D BIOS.
"- Updates the fan control algorithm of the system to reduce the likelihood of future system issues.
- Fixes issue where the touchpad scroll function does not work on some notebooks.
- Fixes issue where the battery fails."

And the FAQ has A LOT about the fan 'problem'..

But when I checked my BIOS version, it is F.3E (after the "latest" F.3D) which I believe was installed when I sent my laptop in for repairs a while back. I found a couple of people with the same dillema on other forums, but nobody really knew if they should upgrade (downgrade...?) to F.3D.

Any ideas/links/info?

EDIT: I got SpeedFan (though as with other laptops, it doesn't recognize fans.I was at over 100 Degrees Celcius.. almost 110.
quickly, I took out the battery and stood next to a standup-fan for a couple mins and it came down to around 70-80.. And about 5 mins later the laptop fan kicked in.. first time it's run today.

Much appreciated,

~Harley.

Don't think it's needed, but if system information will help, I'll post it..?
 

A:My BIOS is newer than the "latest" BIOS..?

I would suspect that the newer BIOS has the same fan control fixes as the older BIOS, they usually build up on previous BIOS releases.

If this has recently only worsened then maybe the fan or fan controller is starting to fail.

In any case I believe you can contact HP to see what they say even if the laptop is off the standard warranty, up to another year.

Or you can try flashing the older BIOS and see if it resolves any of the issues, I've seen the F.3E BIOS posted on another site.

Hello, I've read through these forums searching for information about running a newer GPU with my M90p series desktop. I'm quite disappointed by the fact that there is no official information about support for AMD graphics cards. I have already purchased the new AMD RX 460 due to it's superior price to performance ratio, only to find out that it's probably not even possible to boot up the M series with it, due to the outdated BIOS for ThinkCentres. Are there any plans to add support for the new AMD GPUs?

Greetings!

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

A:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

I've been using Chromium for quite a while and, as a result, have been doing upgrades weekly to incorporate the latest builds.

Then, after build 2283, when I installed the next one (2286), I notices that Flash did not work anymore.

I did some searching and found a Chromium page that had instructions for installing Pepper_Flash -- which I followed. But restarting the browser generated an error saying that Flash was out of date!

So, I did some digging. Reinstalling build 2283, I checked the plugins and found that Flash v16.0.0.296 was already installed. Checking the Chromium page, that was the same build number as their download. There does not appear, at least when I checked, to be a newer version of Flash.

I've been hoping that Google would fix this, but each build since 2283 suffers from the same problem.

Someone on another forum said they were using current Chromium builds on their Mac and they don't have this problem.

Not been able to find any recent info about Google dropping support for Flash. Everything I've found is nearly a year old.

Just wondering if anyone knows what is happening. I'm sticking with build 2283 until they sort this out.

UPDATE: Found some details on the Chromium site indicating their plans to drop Flash support the end of 2014. So, looks like this is a permanent problem.

I have 2 issues here, but the 1st one I know I can fix. It's here just for some added info.
It's the 2nd one I am really concerned about.

1. When I try to connect to my MIFI 2200, it won't connect . It was connecting for a while, but I wanted to change some security settings on it, but screwed that up , so I did a factory reset on it, and now I can't seem to get it connected. When I click on "Troubleshoot problems", it tells me "The diagnostics policy service is not running." I have tried just about everything on the internet to fix the diagnostics thing, but to no avail .

2. I've been using this laptop for about a year, so I figured it could use a refresh. I decided to do a repair install, but it says Windows 7 cannot be installed because I need a bios upgrade. I do not understand this, as I am running Windows 7 (32 bit) Home Premium, already.

The disk I am using came with the Dell. It says on the cover "For Refurbished PC's." Could this be (at least) part of the problem?

I have a refurbished:
-Had it for almost a year-

Dell Latitude - D620,
Intel T2400 @ 1.83GHz

Hello, I'm going to be upgrading my Compaq 6820s CPU from its T5470 (65nm "Memron") to T8300 (45nm "Penryn"). Hovewer, its BIOS is the old F.02 (which was shipped with) from 23 august 2007. Penryn CPUs were released Q1 2008, atleasts 4 months after.  Seeing how year old motherboards need BIOS update to work with the newest processors, I'm convinced that I'll need to update too. Therefore, I would like to ask: 1. what is the bios version needed for Penryn CPUs to work- alternatively, what version of bios was on 6820s shipped with Penryn CPU 2. will all Penryn (with 800mhz FSB) work with the compatible BIOS or only those listed in manual?- Because there is one CPU not listed in manual, T9500. Essentially an T9300 with 100mhz higher clock. Thanks DomoSK

Hi: None of the BIOS release notes show support for additional processors. You may as well update to the latest version available. I would not use the windows based flash to update the BIOS, so use the FreeDOS Bootable Media BIOS update. You can only run the Windows based flash in Vista or XP. http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=3442858&swItemId=ob_66978_1&swEnvOid=2096... I know on the 8510p with the same chipset, the T9500 is supported.

If anyone can help me I would sincerely appreciate it. I do not want to cause damage, so I would like some instruction.

Thanks for anyone that can help me out.

The only recommendation I can make is that you take it back to HP. If it doesn't work properly you have a right to get them to fix it. For free!

Can I use the latest Flash on Win 7 64 bit?

I'm running Firefox 7.01 and I guess two different versions of Adobe Flash / Active X. Secunia (an online software scanner) says,

?This installation of Adobe Flash Player 10.x is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!

The detected version installed on your system is 10.3.181.26 (NPAPI), however, the latest patched version released by the vendor, fixing one or more vulnerabilities, is 10.3.183.10 (NPAPI).

A few updates ago, Firefox told me to update Flash. When I did nothing worked. It was like I didn't have any graphics card - back to the old days of BBS and asci. Videos and pictures didn't work either. I don't remember all the details now, but I did some research at the time and saw that other people were having issues on 64 bit systems. The answer was to run the old version of Flash, so I used a restore point to go back. Then I updated Firefox without updating Flash.

I'm wondering if there is a fix for this yet. I really don't want to go through everything I did last time just to find out that it doesn't work. I figured one of you experts here wou... Read more

Is there any indication when the updated driverset will become available for the latest Windows 10 (V. 1607) update to be used on T500 series ThinkPads?I have tried to install this version (on my T510, ) but it hangs when it tries to start this version, probably because the current available Lenovo drivers are not suited for this update.Also the support page for the T510 does not even list Windows 10 (including previous versions!) as the possible used OS's! Hopefully Lenovo will add this soon on its support page for these series.

I Just want to let you guys all know that the new x360 Envy's and Spectre's have no pen support whatsoever. Previous models had a active digitizer. The latest line does not nor does it support any fine tip pen. Deceptive advertising from HP considering they had Ads up of the laptops next to their active pen. Infact as of now the Envy and Spectre webpage still recommend this uncompatible pen. The HP support on this forum and through calling in actually have little product knowledge and just regergitate what they see searching google and on the forums.

i am running xp home with sp3 and when i go on sites such as youtube (infact i think its only youtube) when i click on a video it tells me i either have JavaScript turned off or i need to install the latest flash player. well i know i have JavaScript turned on but everytime i install flash player it has no effect on youtube, it still wont play videos.

ive been on the flash site for help, they sed that errors might be caused by previous versions so i should uninstall all previous versions blah blah blah and try again.
done all of that, still nothing

help???

p.s the version i am downloading is 9.0.124.0, which i assume is the latest because it is a direct link from youtube.

A:I need help with the latest flash player

Welcome to TSF....

I found this fix from one of the members of this forum chauffeur2 please to give it a try:

Fix for Java and Flash Player
Download Flash Player 9 again; then try this workaround...

Go Start > Run > type in the box C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash

Now copy the Flash9e.ocx file and then pasted it back in the same directory.

You will have created Copy of Flash9e.ocx; rename it to Flashe.ocx.

This effectively will give you two files; Flashe.ocx and Flash9e.ocx, both the same file; although with a different name, in the same directory.

This generally stops the issue you have described.

Post back with the outcome.

Kind Regards,

A:Keeps On Saying To Get Latest Flash Player But I Already Have

You should try reinstalling the Flash Player. First uninstall it by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller. Then download a new copy from here and reinstall it.Check your Internet Explorer ActiveX settings. If your Browser security settings are set to Custom check the following:Open Internet Explorer. Choose Tools > Internet Options. Select the Security tab. Choose Internet. Click Custom Level. Ensure that the Download Signed ActiveX Controls option is set to Prompt. Ensure that the Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins option is set to Prompt.Ensure that Enable for Active Scripting and Scripting of Java Applets is selected.

System Specs: Part1 Part2

Lenovo Ideapad Y500: 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Dual Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 2GB

OK, my problem is: No version newer than the GeForce 307.64 Driver will allow me to utilize SLI.

If you wanna see what I mean, here's the before and after.

My problem isn't really the fact that a whole year's worth of bugfixes, security and performance updates have gone away. I can live with that. My problem is, if I use the old driver that allows for me to run in SLI mode, any game that supports SLI causes my laptop to crash (with no BSOD, so I can't get any sort of error code) immediately after it runs. One weird thing is (see Part2): It still shows I have 4GB of vRAM even though only one 2GB graphics card is actually being utilized.

Can someone help me or give me some advice? It's a little frustrating.

It's the difference between holding steady at 60 with vsync in high/ultra on most games or being barely able to run it at all above medium/high.

TL;DR: Updated to Windows 8.1. SLI support went away for the last year of revisions of Nvidia GeForce drivers. Crashes every time I run games in SLI mode on the driver that actually supports it.
 

A:Updated to Windows 8.1. No SLI Support for latest Nvidia Drivers.

Seems to be common issue with this model: https://www.google.ca/search?q=windows+8.1+sli+site:forums.lenovo.com&espv=210&es_sm=122

Doesn't seem to be a solution yet, you will have to wait for fix from Lenovo or NVidia or go back to Windows 8 or 7.
