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.)

Lenovo Vantage is showing as a "critical update" the "Lenovo SSD and HDD Firmware Update Tool".  It would be nice to check the firmware on my Thinkpad's SSD, which, being OEM, can't be updated through the SSD manufacturer's tool.  However the Lenovo tool now offered occupies 635 MB on the drive, which is an unacceptable bloat.  I have only my one drive, and a firmware updater should be very much smaller than 635 MB. What to do?  Is it possible to uninstall the Lenovo tool after using it once?  That depends on how it installs.  But then can it be reinstalled many months later to recheck the currency of the firmware?  The installation file is just 95 MB, and it would be fine to keep that for later.  But do we get the installation file when we let Lenovo Vantage install the Tool?Advice appreciated.

I am attempting to update the firmware for my SSD according to the tool in System Update and Companion.  It apparently detects and want's to update my SSD (Samsung MZVKV512HAJH) from 6L0QBXX7 to 7L0QBXX7.  However when I do so it simply pops up a box which says "Firmware update FAILED! RC=0x5 Stopped by a soft error. Please try again". I want to see a log or figure out what RC=0x5 means, or even what a soft error is.  Where can I go to learn this? Thank you!

Hi All, I'm trying to update the firmware on the Fibocom WWAN device on my X270 laptop. I'm running windows 10 x64. I downloaded the Firemware update from here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz2wi01w.exeThe Readme is Here:https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz2wi01w.txt When I try to run the unpacked executable, L831_FWUpdateTool_L831_V2E.0C.00.16_NAND, nothing happens. Don't even get a window that then prompty dissapears, just nothing happens. I've tryed starting it from a commandline and using /? type switches to see if I can get anything else from it but nothing happens. Also checked to see that it's not blocked, or being stopped by AV, also checked event logs, there's nothing there.... Any ideas? Is it me, or is the EXE at fault? I've checked the manufacturer site directly, but they don't offer firmware downloads (As I'd exepect really) My laptop is currently running v7 so this would be jumping to v16, as at the moment I only get a "Limited Service" with my sim card. I've checked the Sim in a MiFi device and on a phone and it works fine. So I'm hoping a firmware update will help. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hello everybody, I know another thread with similar problems here, booting three times ect .... but not with the new specific problem, this one seems to be new to me and I hope for a solution without the technician having to change the Hardware Motherboard. I had the original ME firmware and now an update was made by Lenovo Vantage, but this unfortunately did not work properly and led to the following: 1. at boot the "Strg P" entry has disappeared 2. in the Bios the entry with ME Firmware Version is empty 3. ME is shown as deactivated or not present in Hardware Manager, The result is that you can no longer perform flash if ME is no longer present in the system. 4. When restarting or reactivating, it will take about 35 seconds for the Lenovo logo to be displayed and the system will start up  this is all very frustrating, i hope that there will be a software solution, or maybe someone knows a solution .... Thanks all for support.....

Hello MadsWilliam, welcome to the Community,
 
Exactly which systems are you seeing this on please, the 20DA and which other types please? Could you also check the manufacture dates on a couple of examples in case they may be newer than the firmware updater and therefore not recognized by it and also, it would be helpful, if you could let us know the BIOS version from an example of each MT which is presenting you with the error please?

I have a recently purchased X1 Extreme, with fully updated system (according to Lenovo System Update) and running Windows 10 v. 1903.  Following some lost functionality / freeze-up of the mouse pointer, I first tried deleting the Synaptics Trackpoint in Device Manager, then rebooting. This "fix" worked, but the problem repeated itself.  So I followed the usual path - look for newer drivers in Lenovo Support.  So I looked at the X1E Drivers & Software page and downloaded the TrackPoint Firmware Update Utility from:https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n20g902w.exe Running this program gave me the following error (screenshot should (?) be attached):"Fail to enter Transparent mode" And now the TrackPoint & TrackPad do not work at all.  I am using an external USB mouse ... with my ultraportable laptop.   I searched and searched online, of course, and found a solution seems to have been found for the same problem on the X1 Carbon 6th Generation.  The solution involves downloading the SYNAPTICS Touchpad Firmware from the Lenovo site at:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-X-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-... But ... no such update for the X1 Extreme.   HELP...!!!

I am frantically trying to upgrade the firmware on my Tpad G41 28865YU CDRW/DVD drive (GCC-4241N).  I located the driver update fix in the FWod01 CD firmware update package.  Unfortunately, this package only is available on a multitude of diskettes which most laptops - including do not have.  Fortunately, Lenovo at some point accumulated the 1st 8 firmware packages (FWod01-FWod08) into a CD-boot disk update .iso file for download and CD drive install.  Fine.  I brought down this .iso file and created the appropriate boot CD and ran it:  *FWoD08 here* I had traced the needed firmware version to 0202 as documented in the documentation for my GCC-4241N drive.  Unfortunately, the 0202 firmware never somehow made it into the FWod08 package which only contains the original 1.04 version which is the problem.  So, the documentation and the contents of this FWod08 is incorrect.  Any chance of getting this rebuilt, or made into a new CD boot iso with the GCC-4241N 0202 firmware?  The updates have gone upto FWod09 but that is back to diskettes.  Or - is there some way I can get the 0202 files to add to my current FWod08 CD disk? PJV

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. Also, after the update (during booting the computer, it says it was successful), the update is still listed under the System Update Tool, indicating it actually didn't install (see below). However, just trying it again, doesn't result in a different result. 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...)

Get a messagebox saying "battery not detected" and it's not charging from mains. So laptop has now turned into a desktop... as needs plugging in continually... making it almost useless for purpose. This happened exactly after firmware update a few weeks ago. By coincidence the management software also kindly informed me that it could manage the battery better and stop it wearing out by only charging up to 90% - fair enough, but don't treat me like a muppet and disable it without any way to get it back. Tons of Windows 10 updates today (after not being able to use it for a few weeks) but still no battery. I tried F1 BIOS but nothing there to enable the battery (only to disable it). This is frankly a joke - timing shows it's due to the firmware update because the battery was fine and lasted a couple of hours right before. In 25 years of countless laptops, have never had this problem - batteries weaken gradually but don't suddenly lock up and require a paid replacement suddenly. How do we run down our original battery properly before polluting the planet? Phil

This is an old issue, but looks like Lenovo still has not removed this offending firmware from the site (or update it or add a fix). Anyone got any resolve on this issue, or is the "send in your device" the only option? This looks like getting punished for allowing Vantage to continually update your notebook. And in process, "killing" an essential part of it (TrackPoint & Touchpad). In my case, ID of touchpad is TM-2964-1 (Synaptic, not 100% sure).When re-trying to apply firmware PR254199, update fails with error code 0x69. This is the official update that causes this failure:https://support.lenovo.com/us/th/downloads/ds121241 Dated 27 Mar 2017. Direct download links:README file: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/j4g502ww.txtFirmware Patch: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/j4g502ww.exe Same issue happened on X1 Carbon Gen.6, but there, different touch pad & track point are used and those updates do not help.

Hello Lenovo friends! I've been a huge fan of ThinkPads-- my first was a T400s back in 2009.  And I've definitely found them to be solid, reliable machines.  I purchased a ThinkPad X1E last November and just encountered a new problem today though-- when I use my TB dock and play video, I've been getting BSOD messages.  I've connected the dock to two monitors, one via DP and the other via HDMI.  The Stop code is "DRIVER_VERIFIER_DMA_VIOLATION." I've read online that to fix this BSOD, you simply download and install the latest TB firmware update.  So I tried doing that today. But when I go to install the firmware update, I'm getting conflicting instructions!  The first dialog box says, "Please do not plug the Type C or Thunderbolt device to your system while updating the Thunderbolt Firmware." The second dialog box instructs, "Please connect at least one Thunderbolt device to your PC..." What is the correct step to do?  I only have one Thunderbolt device and that's my dock.  Should I connect it to my X1E while I'm updating the TB firmware?  Or not?  I've read on other forum posts that other X1E owners have actually bricked their docks when performing TB updates so I'm very concerned about that too.  Can someone please advise?  Thank you! PS.  Here are some of my system details too, btw, in case that helps:My Product #:  20MFCTO1WWMy BIOS version:  N2EET37W 1.1...

Imediately after restarting I noticed how much slower the computer was. It took some extra time to boot up, and was much, MUCH slower at starting up apps like spotify and firefox, etc. I also noticed a massive slowdown when playing. The task manager shows a normal usage of CPU, RAM and GPU, I'm usually at no more than 40% and I can still notice the slow down at all times. Is there a way to roll this update back? Do I have to wait until another not-messed up update? Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I am not a native speaker so that the description below may not be clear. Last night when my laptop attempt to upgrade its Intel ME firmware, the system appears a blue screen with words "A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed". After that, the procedure of boot of my laptop became "auto power off twice after press the power button, then it will boot into BIOS itself". In other words, it likes: t0: Power button pressedt1: Screen was turned on for about 1 sec, then the whole laptop powered off.t2: happen the process of t1 againt3: boot into BIOS I guess the Intel ME firmware was broken. I tried to googled for related information but found nothing. I swear I will not upgrade my BIOS or Intel ME firmware anymore... Then I downloaded the Lenovo Recovery Image and used it to reset my computer into the factory status, but the issue still exists. I think it is because the Intel ME is a independent chip to the OS, so even recovery cannot help. Thanks for your kind help.

Hi I have a T430 and yesterday (12 feb) it said that it needs to do a Lenovo firmware update. I ran through the installation and it finished and prompted me to reboot. I didn't think it at the time but I have never before seen a firmware update install unprompted (this was not a windows update it was a Lenovo Firmware Update and ran through some considerable command line output before finishing and then asking for a reboot). When it booted back up everything was fine but within a few hours I started to experience wifi problems. Connections would randomly drop and so on.  And I would get strange DNS errors such as DNS_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET. After a while the wifi became unusable. So I performed a windows restore to before the Lenovo firmware update and it fixed the wifi issues, the NIC connected again as normal. But then today the sound started to go crackily and jumpy.  This resolved itself on reboot however I am concerned that after having the laptop for about a year (refurbished) with no issues (except a keyboard issue which  I will write another post about) that I then have 2 hardware issues hours after the Lenovo firmware update.So my 2 questions are: Is the Lenovo firmware update legitimate? if so it known to have caused issues to anyone else? and depending on the answer to them questions is there any advice I should be following? Official or otherwise.ThanksDamian
