Preferred Solution: Lenovo Update server down?

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.)

In the past, I have been able to receive the latest updates via Lenovo Companion > System Update (while occasionally accessing the actual System Update program). But lately when I access both System Update - the actual program - as well as the System Update option via Lenovo Companion, I am greeted with the following error message after loading at around 15% (or after not loading at all): "The System Update Server is currently unavailable. Please try again later." Is there a solution for this issue? I would appreciate assistance on this problem. I am currently a Windows 10 Home (Build Version 1703) user with a Lenovo Companion at Version 3.73.1.0. The last time I have checked my ThinkPad T450s for updates was yesterday at 10:40am HKT (Hong Kong Time) and the last time I made any updates to my computer was on May 31st at 10:37am HKT.

I tried to reintall the driver and still no use. It happened recently. Any idea what's the problem? I'm using Windows 7 x64 and installed the correct version of the driver from the laptop's support section.







The driver is listed as a driver for Lenovo G500 laptop, which is mine.

Before the latest update, I didn't have any problem regarding this driver.

Hi,I have recently acquired Lenovo Thinkpad T500 and I am coming across several issues. Having resolved few, here is the one I cannot find help anywhere.Trying to use Lenovo System Update I get the message "The System Update Server is invalid. Please contact Support Center"....which I would do (contact support) if only T500 was listed as one of your products, while it is not - why is it?The version of the System Update is 5.07.0061 I will be really grateful for any help, because google-resolving these issues took me 2 days already.

All versions of the SQL Server 2000 Evaluation Edition can also be updated with the SQL Critical Update Wizard. However, Evaluation Edition can not be updated using SP3. MSDE 2000 ships with several Microsoft products, including Office XP. For a complete list of products that ship MSDE 2000, view the web page at Microsoft Products that include MSDE 2000.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)IMPORTANT!!IMPORTANT!!Friends from Lenovo,Yesterday I did the update to the new version of Windows 10, called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or Windows 10, version 1709, and after the update was done I find out that the hotkey driver, that controls the Fn commands on the keyboard of my Lenovo ThinkPad X220, doesn`t work correctly with this new version of Windows 10. Therefore, I would like to know what can I do to fix this issue, so the hotkey commands work properly again in my notebook, or if it is going to be an update of this file (8jvu43ww.exe) that I could install in my notebook to fix this issue. Could you please tell me what can I do to make the Fn commands work properly with the new update of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) or if it is going to be an update of the hotkeys that is compatible with the new version of Windows 10?I look forward to hear your comments, and I hope you already have an idea, an answer to solve this issue. Yours truly,Cristián Palau

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

A:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

I've been looking all over the net for the answer to my problems and have yet to find it. Here's my problem. Just recently, my online games are unable to update versions anymore. Perfect World and Shin Megami Tensei are some of the few games I tried. The moment I click on the client, it tells me "update server connection failed" or is unable to connect to server. In both games, when the client is running, there is usually a small window to the side that shows recent game updates, events, and news. However, the window is now replaced with a page that says "navigation to web page was canceled".

I already tried starting the client (bypassing the update), Perfect World allowed me to log in (after I had to use manual patches). But I want to fix the problem of it being unable to update by itself, and its problem with the little screen that shows the news and events. I tried manual patching Shin Megami Tensei Imagine, but it does nothing and I had no luck reaching the login screen. I even tried shutting off all of my firewall and User Account Control off. I placed my games on the allowed lists in my firewall as well. It didn't work.

My windows firewall is currently off and I am using Norton Internet Security 2009. My operating system is Windows Vista and my computer is an E Machine. I have internet explore but mainly use Firefox Mozilla. Also I have installed and uninstalled my games multiple of times, yet no luck. Hopefully someone can help me... Read more
