Preferred Solution: found a bug in lenovo vantage updating software

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.)

My Lenovo Yoga C740 experienced some issues with flickering of the eye care mode. I updated my .reg using this solution, but it seems that the eye care mode is non functional altogether. In the Vantage software, it is constantly loading and when I turn it on in the toolbar, it does nothing. I am currently using flu.x as an alternative, but would like a fix or update, as there must be others experiencing the flickering of the eye care mode as well.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Pre-Installed-Lenovo-Software/Vantage-makes-screen-to-change-color-temp...Do not update the regristy with this if you still want eye care mode. Is there a solution to this?

When I bought my Lenovo V330-15IKB laptop slightly less than a year ago, I used the System Update in Lenovo Vantage, and it showed the update history, including BIOS updates. For some reason, now when I check 'My device status', in the System Update section, there is a red cross instead of green check like the other lines, and the message 'System Update not found'. What is causing this, and how can it be fixed?

Hello Community,as per a.m. I'm reporting what I believe is a bug, not sure it is though.Everytime I try to update the AMD VGA Driver via Lenovo Vantage (which I find very useful since I do not have to deal with the manual install/uninstall of drivers) I reach a point where the OS reports that two different driver versions are installed (??).There seems to result in a driver conflict, therefore I'm unable to access to the AMD Radeon Settings via mouse right click. Shouldn't the Lenovo Vantage process uninstall the old driver before installing the new/updated one? No updating of drivers via Lenovo Vantage have ever resulted in such a weird behaviour, so I have no clue of what it is... Lucky me I am prudent enough to have a daily backup of the OS so I can restore it when such behaviour occurs... Do you guys still suggest to using Lenovo Vantage to update AMD VGA Driver or proceed with the manual update?Could pls. be so kind to tell why Lenovo Vantage is behaving so weirdly and if it's resolvable or not?If it's not can you suggest a page/guide explaining the manual process of updating the specific driver for my notebook and where to download the correct one?Thank you so very much in anticipation for your kind support. Specs:Windows 10 HomeInstalled/current AMD VGA Driver version: 25.20.14118.3002Latest AMD VGA Driver version: 26.20.11016.5002

Hi @halfbeing,
 
Greetings!
 
To resolve the issue, kindly uninstall the Lenovo Vantage app and the Lenovo System Interface Foundation app as well. Restart the computer then install the Vantage app again. Found similar discussion here. 
 
Thanks!

My latop is the X1 Carbon 2018 with HDR wide color gamut screen.After Lenovo Vantage update, the new version of Vantage is missing some features, including the Color settings.In the latest version Lenovo Vantage , the color settings were canceled. Since my color settings have been modified  accidentally, I want to adjust it back through Lenovo Vantage and find that there are no related options. Is there any solution?PS: I have tried to download the old version of Lenovo Vantage, but I found that the old version of the settings can not find the color settings also after Lenovo Vantage update.

Good evening, sir,I recently bought this new Lenovo Legion Y540 15 inch PC and I was satisfied with the lenovo vantage software. However, by updating everything (operating system, bios, drivers, etc ...), the software doesn't want to display the main menu anymore and leaves the message: "Services for Lenovo Vantage are being upgraded, please wait.".It's been now several hours, even whole nights by leaving it running but nothing, I don't have a low flow and everything seems to work but it can't display the main menu. I tried to reinstall it, but nothing has changed... (ps: I install it from the microsoft shop).Can you help me, cordially.

In this first screenshot of Lenovo Vantage running under Windows 10 (64) on my X1 Yoga (1st generation), please notice where it says that I need to install Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105.  However, in the second screenshot, please notice where the Installation History shows that Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 was successfully installed already. Everytime I boot up and run Lenovo Vantage to check for updates, it tells me that I need Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 so I let it install it. Everytime I install it, the installation appears to be successful and my computer reboots, but then after rebooting, Lenovo Vantage again tells me that (1) I need it, (2) I already have it. This is crazy.  In the third screenshot (looking at Windows Device Manager) I see the Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A. The fourth screenshot shows that it is disabled.  I will enable this and then retry to install the updated. I'll report back in a second posting on this thread whehter it works.  (I would leave this posting open and finish it later, but I'm afraid it woud all be lost when I reboot).   

A:ENDLESS LOOP: Lenovo Vantage Tells Me To Update a Driver That Vantage Says Is Already Up to Date.

After enabling the driver in Windows Device Manager, then again trying to update, the update was successful. After another reboot, Lenovo Vantage no longer show that this needs to be updated.  I'm no programmer, but it seems to me that the Lenovo Vantage update program ought to be able to see whether a driver is disabled and to tell the user to enable it in order to allow successful of updating of the driver.

Lenovo Vantage worked perfectly on my T60P until recently. Now whenever I load it I get this error: "Services for Lenovo Vantage are installing, please wait. You are about to see the Windows User Account Control dialog. Please accept it to ensure that Vantage service is installed correctly." I've uninstalled and reinstalled, as well as uninstalled system devices as in a different thread, but nothing. I can't update anything or check Vantage and even an older version of Vantage that I tried is broken and keeps trying to get me to download Interface, which I have and installed. This is a disaster, please help.

I have been wondering why there are two methods to get updates for my X1 Extreme.One update method is via the Lenovo Vantage application (under Windows 10 Programs)The other method is to go to the Lenovo Support page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-...); I used the full URL with model number, but you can also use the main support page and use 'Dectect Product' which uses Lenovo Service Bridge to detect the laptop model and serial #. I have used both, but am probably going to stick with Lenovo Vantage. Which method are most of you using? PSell is similar in this regard. They also have multiple update apps / methods for some reason.

I read other posts and none specifically addressed this for the 920 and the use of what is actually a good Lenovo config tool seems to be poorly documented.   I would think it would be the same for any Yoga model with Windows 10 and Lenovo Vantage installed.   I can't seem to find a version for Vantage, so hopefully this works on all versions.    1) Find and open Lenovo Vantage on your machine (use Cortana if needed).   This is the Responsive view and yours may look different...don't worry, options are the same.  Click on Hardware settings  2)  Click on Input (again, responsive view...whatever view you have should have this button labeled the same)  3)  This will open the Hardware Setting - Input UI.   Under 'Function Keys' click on the one that is labeled 'F1-F12' (should look like below, highlighted in blue) to make that the the Function the default setting for those keys...to further clarify: it will now be a Function Key (F1-F12) by default.    With this change, you will press the FN+ one of the function key for the Hot Key option (e.g. FN+F1=mute/unmute, FN+F2=volume down, etc.)     4)  Your change is already saved, so you can now X-out (click X in the upper right) of the pop-up windows created by that were created

Hey all ... here is a screenshot of the current state of affairs: Note: this is the Win 10 Pro 64-bit OS, Version 1803 ... Windows Update is ' ... up to date'. I have tried various Lenovo Vantage Critical / Recommended / Optional update selections (in their respective groups and / or alone) and re-booted every time following failed system updates ... I cannot seem to break whatever log jam is occurring here. I thought perhaps trying the IME 11.6 Firmware - 10 [64] - V.11.8.55.3510 update alone, or, the ThinkPad BIOS Update - 10 [64] - V.2.26.1.18 update alone (they are both 'Reboot Required' updates) might get me past this issue, however, so far, no joy.  There is a 'Fully charged (100%)' battery installed in the system. Thanks for any insights offered, FFF P.S.  I would also be interested to find a Lenovo drivers list of older Synaptics Pointing Device (ThinkPad UltraNav / Touchpad) drivers for my P70 machine ... does such a historical driver resource exist?  The reason being, the more recent touchpad drivers are unsuitable for me ... too sensitive / 'sticky' (adjustment of various touchpad settings doesn't cure the usability issues) ... I much preferred the behaviours of the earlier drivers but can now only Roll Back to Driver Version: 19.3.4.202 (16-Jan-18) ... I'd much rather use the July 2017 driver version, whatever the version number was (possibly 19.3.4.112).

Hi there,I am a Lenovo new player. I have a question ragarding LENOVO VANTAGE APP. When we perform the application, we could find out some information like "System Status", it list out some information (Memory, CPU etc... ) with Green Light or Red Light. my question is what the Green or Red indicator light mean??? 

A:Regarding Lenovo Vantage

Hi Hilfiger1014! Congratulations to your new Lenovo device and welcome to our forums community. Where did the red light indicator appeared? Did you run a hardware test? If yes, can you send the screenshot of the result to us? A red light after a hardware test pertains to an error message wherein there is a possibility of a hardware failure. For more information about the application, you can check this link: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht505081.

As the title says. 3 year old laptop that otherwise is still great, now useless due to Lenovo not updating the bios and preventing me from updating windows which made adobe illustrator and photoshop stop working, can't download codecs, etc. Windows support said until lenovo updates the bios I'm out of luck and have a useless machine. I can browse the internet and use apps that haven't tried to update... Lenovo was a great machine. I was a big fan. Due to lack of support for older machines and this ridiculous issue I would never recommend any business professional like me to purchase one. To have it literally just stop working one day due to lack of software upkeep on lenovo is just silly. Is this how you make people buy new computers? It worked, except I'm going to go to best buy and ask them to sell me a machine that won't stop suddenly due to the manufacturer not keeping it up to date. For the record this is the second time this has happened and lenovo updated a few weeks later. I use this for work and can not deal with my apps not working for weeks while I wait for lenovo to roll out updates... SO, dear Lenovo, update the bios of the y50-70, serial: CB36361936

A:My y50-70 is now useless due to lenovo not updating bios preventing me from updating windows.

What version of Windows are you running right now, what version are you trying to update to, and what error are you getting? Per Lenovo (see link below), that model is compatible with Windows 10 1809, but has not yet been certified for Microsoft's just released May 1903 update. Lenovo devices tested for Windows 10 version 1809https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht507291 When Microsoft makes major OS updates, the manufactures of hardware devices in your system such as like Intel, Synaptics and Realteck etc. may need to provide updated drivers to computer manufacturers such as Lenovo etc. so their hardware will work properly.  Windows 10 version 1903 is just now rolling out, so I cannot believe that Adobe is requiring version 1903 for codec updates etc.    I also find it hard to believe that it is a BIOS issue, and would guess that most likely Microsoft is blowing you off with that excuse, because there are many Y50-70 systems running Windows 10 already using the old BIOS. Windows 10 Drivers page for Lenovo Y50-70https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-y-series-laptops/y50-70-note...    Cheers,
