Q: System Password after Bios update (Lenovo G40-70 M...

Hello! My wifi stoped working and I updated all drivers and it didn't work. Then for the last thing I've updated the bios from 9acn28ww to 9acn32ww from the site. It went OK, but now that I try to acess the setup I'm prompted by a system password I didn't set earlier, it was empty. It came with Windows 8 installed, but I was using Windows 7 with MBR partition and now I can't configure to Legacy and nothing... Is there any default password like "password" ? Thanks in advance!

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.

Hello everyone! I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn`t find any kind of solution for my problem.Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system, which also previously was Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). The installation went as usual, and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site, for my product. When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i`ve needed, i stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop, by the producer. So i proceeded to install the upgrade, restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so, but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual. At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing, things that i did not understand at the time (i have never encountered anything like that). After that my screen turned black. I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that, but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter. When trying to boot it all up again, the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else.After doing a little bit of research it appears that, somehowm i`ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something, and nothing else would work at this point. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, trye... Read more

A:HOW TO REMOVE LENOVO G40-70 BIOS PASSWORD?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of your problem.  From what you have described I'm not sure if the hard drive password or a BIOS Power On password was enabled on your system.  Unfortunately with either password, discussions are limited by Forum Rules.  This is due to the ease in which laptops are stolen.  If you didn't activate the passwording on your laptop then I would suggest checking with anyone who may have had access to it.  Only they can assist you in removing that password.  The alternative is to contact Lenovo Support for replacement of hardware that is locked by the password.

Hi smileshs ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
BIOS password reset can only be done by sending it to the Lenovo depot facility .
Such security is encoded on the BIOS and you may have to get your brother to remember it.

Hi G570/575 UsersThe LCD of my G570 (model 4334) is dead black. I have to use an external monitor which is connected to the D-sub (VGA port)  to view the screen. However, my Window 7 is corrupted and I need to reinstall the OS. But the boot menu does not appear on the external monitor, thus I could not change the boot sequence to make the DVD as the first boot device(the HD is the first boot device now).I was wondering if someone could help me the keystrokes needed to do the following:1. The keystrokes to make the external monitor display the boot menu, save and exit. If this not possible, then2. The keystrokes to change the first boot device to DVD, save and exit.Thanks a lot.Yiping

Hi Yiping , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You can try turning the pc on using the novo button .
Else if the display cannot project , you may have to blind map it , step by step .
It would be using InsydeH20 , initially use Novo button to turn on. 
2nd option to choose BIOS option so down arrow once.
As it now goes to the BIOS main tab by default , 4 tabs to the right so it will be 3 left arrow .
Follow thru with this example.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards
 
*** edited note for additional link ***
 
You can use this BIOS simulator for G570 to accurately map the step.

I set a Supervisor Password and an User Password for a Lenovo G570 Laptop, running an INSYDEH20 BIOS. Later I decided to exclude the passwords, so I entered in Setup press F2 and I selected Clear Password (something like this). Now when I turn on my laptop the message "Enter Current Password" appears. I put my old password... "invalid password", just press Enter... "invalid password" . I didn't forget the password, I just wanted to remove the password and now I don't know what's happening. How should I do for this matter?

Thanks for reading my post.

I have here a Lenovo G580 Laptop. When powering on it asks for HDD Password. When I try to access the BIOS to remove/edit the password it asks me for a BIOS password.

Now the real strange thing is that no password has ever been set for BIOS or the Hard Drive.... However... I've tried removing the battery and the CMOS battery to reset the password... and when I insert them and power back up it STILL asks for the passwords!?

Any help or guidance would be appreciated. The laptop isn't old however it is just outside of the warranty.

Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help me

I recently changed my BIOS password (aka supervisor password) on my ThinkPad T400 and I did not write it down. I do remember that the character limit for this password was short (maybe 6,7,or 8 characters long). If I knew the (default?) character limit or length I could rule out dozens of other passwords in my memory and gain access to my computer that much sooner. Ive read every manual and users guide for my laptop and there is no other method readily available, no bypass solution so it is imperative that I remember what I set.. Thanks for your time.

I need a way to update a bios that has a bios password set FROM windows remotely. Scenario:             I'm at my desk, a remote user is having a known issue related to a BIOS revision that is older. I need to update it but the user is not at my location. We cannot supply the user our BIOS password by policy. Prior to these new models, we could put the BIOS password into a box during the update; however, NOW we are forced to supply it on bootup. This is impossible without traveling to the users location. We had a case open with HP and they said "you need to script it" I need to know what that entails. We used to be able to use switches and whatnot with the bios update utility.....I don't see that ability now. Please provide guidance to remove temporarily the bios password remotely (known bios password it's not forgotten) and re-enable it after upgrade. re-cap,BIOS password is knownusers at remote locations require bios updatecannot provide users the passwordcannot physically travel to the user's locationneed it re-enabled after update.

hi mahdhir2005,
 
Im sorry to hear that.
 
  I would suggest you call the Lenovo Technical Team regarding the Issue. If it is the BIOS that's causing the issue then there maybe no source or option to have it fixed without they're help or service.
 
  If the BIOS software you downloaded was from a legit Lenovo Site and correct model, then I think It will be ok to Just report them what happened and ask for possible option.
 
Hope this helped
Thanks!

I had a functionnal dual boot Windows 10/Linux Mint but now Linux Mint takes around 3 minutes to boot. It took 25 seconds before. I figured it was related to the disk so I did the memory and disk diagnostics but everything seems ok. Even booting from USB/DVD is slow. I tried restoring default settings from BIOS, putting the battery in maintenance mode, removing the battery and even disconnecting the CMOS backup battery for an hour. I then tried to downgrade the BIOS but it does not seem like an option. This would probably fix my problem since everything was ok at version 2.11.I am really out of solution here! Please help, my computer is not usable in this state :/ Julien

Hi, I recently bought the Lenovo g50 (80e501g3us) laptop that came loaded with Windows 8.1. I decided to downgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) because the laptop came loaded with spyware such as Superfish and I prefer Windows 7.

The installation was a success and I started updating all of the drivers for my model based on the Windows 7 64 bit OS that I got from Lenovo's website. All drivers except 2 worked which said it required an update. I then flashed my BIOS with the version that I downloaded from Lenovo's website thinking that this might solve my problems.

Reset the BIOS to default before you do anything else. 
 

Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
Remove main battery
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
Replace main battery
Replace AC adapter (plug into wall then notebook)

This should reset the BIOS to factory defaults, but you should enter the BIOS to make sure your boot order has been changed to indicate your choice of booting (DVD, HDD).  I would also turn off network boot (disable) as you should not need that option for Windows 7, 8 or 10 to work correctly.
 
Good luck.

I found this procedure on a lenovo forum. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. If not, it is not worth putting money into fixing this laptop.. New ones are pretty cheap and having a new mb installed in this one will cost more than a new laptop.

First of all I want to say that I am extremely disappointed with the experience I had with my Lenovo. After I bought it I found out that Lenovo, for some reason, disabled the Turbo Boost option of the CPU. I tried to fix it by entering the BIOS but the options there were limited, so I decided to update the BIOS. I downloaded the BIOS update for 64-bit windows(i am running windows 8 which is compatible with the said update utillity). I ran the .exe and followed all the instructions (did not shut-down restart or anything my computer). After installing it automatically restarted and a Lenovo logo prompted on the screen followed by ">>Start PXE over IPv6, Press [ESC] to EXIT..." after that "EFI Network 0 for IPv6(numbers and letters) boot failed". Then ">>Start PXE over IPv4" which failed and a blue box poped saying "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery Media and Hit any ket then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". Pressed ok and got me to Boot Manager screen. Boot option Menu had only EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and EFI Network 0 for IPv4". What should I do?Note that I tried to start up both with and without the ethernet cable in.

My Windows 10 N22 does not output audio to my digital TV when connected with an HDMI cable. I have tried it on several TV's with the same result. I get video, but the audio comes from the laptop speakers. The TV is not even available to select as a Playback Device in Sounds, only the speakers show up. I have tried to udate the BIOS, as the latest BIOS is supposed to resolve an HDMI audio issue.  However, when I try to update it, I get a message that reads "ERROR 180 - BIOS part numbers do not match!" My current BIOS version is 0YCN14WW.

Hi lancs , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The support website officially publish any certified BIOS intended for your machine. 
Best to use your serial number to get ones specific for your machine. 
 
If you do not have any issue , it would be best to keep the current ones and simply load its default if needed.

Just purchased a G50-30 with win 7 x64. Decided to update the BIOS A7CN40WWW_64 from Lenovo website. The notebook version was A7CN23WW. Upon reboot, after successful BIOS update, Win 7 booted with errors of Repair option or Normal boot up. Even re-installation of Win 7 will yield BSOD - ACPI non compliant.  Have changed BIOS settings defaults from UEFI to Legacy, it still does not work. This BIOS version is not stable.Please help / advise ? Can i request for the earlier version of BIOS ? 













Solved!

I have managed to resolve the Win7 installation issues by the following settings in the BIOS setup (F2) : a) Boot Mode/Priority - set to Legacy over UEFIb)  USB Mode - set to 2.0 and not 3.0 Case resolved.

When I look up your system on the support page I see quite a few updates, drivers and such that support windows 8.1 and 10.  If you are looking for a BIOS update or patch, those are usually OS neutral and are applied with either a BIOS utility or patcher that works in DOS mode and some can use a windows based utility.
 
Are you trying to use a BIOS update to fix an issue or just get the "latest and greatest" for your computer?  Mostly I would not recommend updating your BIOS unless it is absolutely neccessary to fix a troublesome issue or problem with hardware.

Hello,  I got an update from lenovo system update and I accepted the update. After the reboot, it went into the bios and I just selected "exit without saving". Then everything's dead now. The computer powers on, but it doesn't even show the Lenovo logo. When I try to go into the bios with that small button, the same thing happens. Is there anyway to recover the bios with a flash drive somehow? I found an instruction to recover the bios using the USB drive, but it needed a BIOS.PWH file which I don't know how to get for Lenovo Z510.  PLEASE HELP ME! I'm freaked out

Hello there. I have a few questions regarding the recent release of BIOS update with version number CDCN37WW. Currently my BIOS is on version CDCN35WW. I was about to install it yesterday but did not because of several reasons. I read the instruction saying that I should put the BIOS settings at its default settings before installing the CDCN37WW update and there lies my problem. I bought the 15ISK version with 1TB HDD. A month ago I bought a 128GB SSD and did a clean install of Windows 10 on my new SSD. After booting into Windows 10 on my SSD in Legacy Mode, I format the partition in the 1TB HDD which houses my default installation of Windows 10 (the pre-installed Windows 10 by Lenovo). I did not completely wipe the HDD altogether and thus I still have the partitions created by Lenovo. The main issue that is stopping me from installing the update is my BIOS settiings. In BIOS boot submenu, I have it set to Legacy and then Legacy First so that it detects my SSD. UEFI does not detect my SSD. Default settings sets UEFI instead of Legacy. In conclusion, I cannot install the BIOS update even if I wanted to because I won't be able to boot into Windows 10 on my SSD once I change BIOS settings to default because UEFI (default settings is set to UEFI) does not detect my SSD. My questions are: -1. Does anyone have any solution or workaround to this problem ?2. Is it really compulsory to set the BIOS settings back default ? Or is it just a "... Read more
