Preferred Solution: X1 Carbon - failing to update BIOS

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello nbsp I have a ThinkPad X Carbon rd generation Two days ago I have updated the nbsp Carbon...

I was afraid that the high temperatures may have damaged the cpu The tool reported that the maximum temperature of the cpu during the benchmark was always safely within the expected threshold and all the tests were passed nbsp Now I still can see that the fan kicks in much more often than usual I have noticed using sensors nbsp under nbsp Ubuntu that every time there is a very short burst peak of cpu usage e g I start Google Chrome and visit nbsp Gmail the sensors report a very high temperature nbsp but just for lt nbsp second e g from degrees to degrees and then soon goes nbsp back to degrees This is the reason why the fan kicks in it remains active for - minutes starting from a high RPM value and then going down as expected I don't think that the temperature actually reaches degrees I expect an immediate but small increase e g degrees of the temperature due to the burst but nothing like degrees nbsp I think that the sensors are nbsp returning junky values I never saw this temperature behaviour instant jump temperature degrees or more due to short bursts peaks before the BIOS update nbsp In my opinion the sensors are not returning stable values as before but they are very jumpy Few questions - Is there any bug report about BIOS update How can you explain the temporarely non working fan after the update I think this may be a serious concern - How can I debug my issue with the temperature sensors Is there any way to reset them Do you think this is a software or hardware problem - Do you think that the high temperature may have damaged the sensors nbsp nbsp Thank you Emilio nbsp

A:Fan Problem after BIOS Update - ThinkPad X1 Carbon...

Laptop has got anti overheat thing so if temp rises over 100c it will automatically power off like if the battery was dead and that you unplugged it that sort of power off so temps you don't have to worry but as long laptop alone isn't idle at 80-90c then laptop needs clean out to fix it and if that won't fix it then it could be something else

Hello, I just recently performed the 26-Jul BIOS update to 1.14, for my Thinkpad Carbon X1 (20BS) with windows 10.The update went ok, but afterwards, Windows is crashing when booting. Using a bootable Windows 10 installation disk also crashes when booting. The recovery environment also crashes when booting. Using detailed logs, it seems to crash when activating the ACPI microcontroller. I would assume that has something to do with the UEFI update, that I have disabled in the BIOS. Enabling it does not recognise the disk, as it is not a GPT partition. I tried to rollback the BIOS, but it does not allow it.  Do you have any suggestion on how to proceeed? Thanks,Pedro

I have the sound problem after the lid is shut i can loose mouse and sound had to do system restore to get it working again. Read a few posts on this forum that there is a fix in an update to the Bios.I have tried sp67441 and sp69946 and installer loads and then tells me WMI not found. Read up about that and checked installation and WMI is installed running and set to automatic.Have to select continue on the error message box and the Bios seems to continue update (cant tell what version it tries to install as flashes on screen to fast!) system shuts down and reboots but still no change to bios version installed which is F.06.Runnng windows 8.! suspect there is a conflict with WMI??I really want this problem fixed seems its well known HP problem on the envy x2 besides rubbish sound quality from laughable Beats Audio! 

A:Hp Envyx2 cant update bios keeps failing

Hey @Dodgemnz ,Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand you're experiencing issues updating the BIOS on your ENVY x2 Split notebook. The only update utility that will work for your notebook is sp69946.exe. If you're having issues installing it confirm the steps you're taking are correct here: Updating the BIOS.Make sure any anti-virus or firewall software is disabled, and perform a clean boot of Windows before installing just to be safe.If you still have problems installing after that please try restoring the BIOS before updating. You can see how to do this here: Restoring the BIOS.Let me know if this helps.

I have tried four times to install a BIOS update (Rom Family SSID 2AF7; Version 80.20Ap1) provided within the Support Assistant, on each occation the update fails to install. I get no error messages. The computer restarts, but the previous BIOS version (AMI 80.19 (2014-07-18)) remains installed. I have tried stopping my antivirus program, but this didn't help. I have noticed that the command screen hangs with a flashing cursor, but no instructions are visible and then my computer restarts. Is it possible that the update is corrupt? Any advice on how I should proceed would be welcome.

Yes, HP has indeed pulled the update.  No one's system is at risk and you may continue to use your computer.  Everyone here is still on my contact list as events change.

A:X1 Carbon will not boot, or enter BIOS

I had the same problem.If you have windows installed, do not shut it down normally, but make a hard reset (press for a few seconds the turn-on button). It looks like Windows Computer (WC) does not really shut down so you miss the chance of entering the BIOS.To me it works by then pressing the F1 button (without any extra Fn or Ctrl, etc..) a few times after pressing the turn-on button again (no need to press them at the same time).Btw., if you want to install GNU/Linux and boot from USB, you may need to change this in the BIOS: _security _disable secure boot, and_startup _UEFY legacy -> both My system: Win10 (now Debian), X1 4th generation, PCIe SSD

On my old T420, I was able to set a HD password on my SSD in the BIOS so that if anyone ever stole my laptop and pulled the drive, they wouldn't be able to access the data without the password. I'd like to do the same with my X1 Carbon Gen 4 with 512GB Samsung 950pro NVMe HD.  However, in the BIOS, I see no option to set a HD password.  I can set a power on password, but I don't think this means the HD is encrypted.  I assume anyone can pull the HD and read all the data.

Hi, I updated my X1 Carbon 4th gen to 1.17 BIOS, and since then, opening the lid won't wake the computer from hibernation, except when plugged.Bios changelog states Disabled the power button when the computer is in battery mode and the
computer lid is closedbut when I read "power button", I don't think "this is gonna break the behavior of the lid". And of course, no rollback is possible from 1.17, so I'm stuck with a computer wich won't wake from hibernation correctly. I just can advise you all to not upgrade bios, and see what's inside the next version...

Hi, I have an X1 Carbon. I did an  automated Windows update today, it seemed to work fine initially but then my laptop got into a blue screen loop and kept restarting. The computer worked for a while after that and then gave a blue screen again. This time the keyboards flashed as well for a while, and then the computer turned off. I cannot start the laptop since then. I searched the forum and tried the hard reset, but it did not help. When I try powering on,  keyboard lights turn on for just a second and then they go off. The green power button light turns on  but the computers does not start. Can anyone help? I am traveling for work and looking forward to getting help. Thanks!

I'm setting up a new X1 Carbon with machine type 20FB. It came with a Samsung MZNTY256HDHP SSD. I noted there was a recent SSD firmware update package for this laptop model, so I downloaded and ran the updater. It reported there were no updates. However, after digging a bit deeper, I discovered that the SSD firmware updater for the X1 Carbon 20A7/20A8/etc. DOES have an update for the SSD in this machine. What is going on here? Does this firmware update somehow only apply when the SSD is installed in a 20A7? Or did this particular model of SSD just get missed when Lenovo was putting together the firmware update package for the 20FB?

Hi, guys!Some info:X1 Carbon (type 20FC)Intel HD Graphics 520 (driver 20.19.15.4331)Windows is up-to-date So far, everything works fine. If I update my graphics driver through Lenovo Companion to 20.19.15.4444, backlighting is stuck at 100%.If I update my graphics driver through Lenovo's support website/Windows device managers' automatic update to 21.20.16.4505, it kills my backlight completely. The only way to get things back to normal is to boot in safe mode, uninstall the graphics driver, reboot and prevent Lenovo Companion from installing the new driver automatically. Please tell me what's wrong and/or fix the grahics driver. Thanks.

Hello,
I've been trying and failing to update Anniversary Update on Surface Pro 3.
Downloads, prepares, reboots and then, at about 14% of first step, it shows the thermometer gauge and shuts down.
When I power it on, it reverts to previous version of windows
I've tried it plugged in, plugged out, waiting a few minutes shutdown before starting in updating mode...
I don't know what to do

I don't know what to do the thermometer gauge represents your surface pro is getting overheated and in order to prevent heat damage to the core hardware the device/bios shuts down your device. so first we need to fix the overheating issue and then can you continue with the update.

Every time I try to update W 8 I get the error message saying the updates failed and the purple screen that says it is "reverting update". I thought it might be multiple updtaes at once cusing the problem so I tried individual updates at a time. Also disabled AV. Ran update repair. Nothing works.
This after I tried the W8 to 8.1 upgrade and it failed. So I thought I would need to make sure updates were complete. Thus the issue with updates. Ultimately I will try and install the 8.1 os after all this. Any suggestions.

I ve been working on a laptop for the past few days The owner told me that it was behaving strangely and having a problem booting back into Windows after waking up from Sleep mode If the computer went to sleep and would not boot he would have to restart it After restarting it he said that nothing would happen The computer would turn on the a load? BIOS failing hard not Can drive cause to he would hear the drives being accessed Can a failing hard drive cause the BIOS to not load? but nothing else would happen So I took over from there and noticed what he was talking about When first powered on the drives would begin to load like normal the access lights would flicker but nothing else would happen No BIOS manufacturer screen would appear and if it sat long enough it would wind up just restarting The laptop would do this over and over again until it finally would load the BIOS correctly and then Windows would boot as normal It could take five restarts or twenty it was never uniform Long story short I discovered that the hard drive is failing Two separate tests a built in one in the BIOS and another program from the Ultimate Boot CD confirmed that it is in its final death throes I ve contacted the owner to let him know what the problem is and where we can go from here but there is still something nagging at me Can a failing hard drive cause the BIOS boot screen to not appear I was always under the impression that the BIOS data was never stored on the hard drive for this very reason Could it be that the hard drive is not passing the POST and thus the BIOS won t even load I just want to make sure that the BIOS not loading isn t because of some other underlying problem The hard drive definitely has to be replaced but I want to make sure something else isn t going on as well Laptop Specs Compaq Presario F US Windows Vista Home Premium x SP AMD Athlon X Dual-Core TK- GB of RAM Fujitsu MHY BH SATA hard drive nbsp

It may be a long delay with the BIOS trying to access and identify the drive. Just unplug it and see if the BIOS loads normally.

Run hardware diagnostics on your laptop and report back with results. Let me know if you need help doing this although you should be able to hit either F8/F12 (F12 more likely) when the Acer splash screen appears to enter a menu that has a diagnostics utility listed.

Hi,

I get error code BC9 when trying to install the update. Also, I get the message of restarting my computer, which I do constantly but nothing happens after. 
I would really appreciate help!

A:Windows update keeps on failing

Hi ?
I agree with Cyber_Defend_Team.
In addition, error BC9 means "The request operation failed. A system reboot is required to roll back changes made."

Regarding this kind of update issue, I suggest you try the following suggestions and let me know the result.
1. Disable antivirus software 
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Disable-antivirus-software
Please Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable
it as soon as you're done.
2. Open the Windows Update troubleshooter

3. Reset Windows Update components

Give this a try. Go to search by the start button. Type services. Look for windows update and make sure that it is on

OK, I've got a little problem here...

A week or two ago, I had to install an overdose of updates. In fact, about 164 in one day. And, since Saturday, for the past four days, my computer kept telling me to install the one update. In those four days, I've been constantly shutting down the computer just to install that one update. It's like I never shut down, ever. Now it says "Most recent check for updates: Today at 9:49AM, updates were installed: 2:54PM (Failed)." And, it's been doing this for the past four days. I've shut down my computer about four times today, and I don't want to do it again.

Has this happened to anyone else? How can I fix it?

A:Why does Windows Update keep failing, and can I fix it?

Hi Shadowboy1795,

I am Prabhat and i work for Dell Social Media and Community Team, as i understand the issue, you are not able to install windows updates.
Firstly, go to SERVICES, go to start > control panel > services or you can go to Start > Run > then type services.msc.
Once you have the Services windows open, under all there services listed, please check if the windows installer service is running or not.
If possible attach a screenshot of the services windows with the windows installer status.

Hello Philip, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You might see if downloading and installing the Windows 8 version of your printer driver directly from Canon at the link below may work better for you.

Hello,

As probably many of you, I got asked to do updates last week or so, and I didn't switch off my computer since then as I've been reading here and there that there were problems occuring.

The thing is I thought of doing a backup before anything happens and today, a power cut occured, and it won't pass through the blue screen saying "Update failed, cancelling changes, don't switch off the computer".

I'm running Windows 7 Premium family edition. Has any of you experencied the same thing ? And if so, is there any way to get my files back ? I have too many important things to lose, any help would be gladly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Hey all, i'm having an issue where my HDD is always 100% active. Resource Monitor shows System taking up a lot of R/W time,  but also "FullImagingService.exe". There's almost no cpu usage and memory usage is normal, booting up is fine and it doesn't start it's 100% activity until after I'm at my desktop. The problem doesn't happen in safe mode, and i've turned off services like superfetch and indexing to try and narrow down the problem. I've ran Hitman Pro, Malware Bytes, Trend Micro, and CCleaner to check for virus issues. My PC was normal for about 24 hours and then the problem started right back up. 
 
I don't know if this problem is a cause, a symptom, or unrelated, but all my windows updates fail. I stopped and restarted the WU service to no avail. 
 
This has me really scratching my head,  on top of making my PC close to unusable.

Hello Cris, and welcome to the Seven Forums!

lol, my post came copied, spelling mistake and all!

Don't worry about PMs or emails, I think you will find that posting like this works perfectly well

"ps, the user friendly version of your program, when will that be publicly available? Or even the current version, if it ever will be made available?"

Not in time for you unfortunately! The current one - about two weeks. The user friendly one - one to two months.

However, in the mean time, we can still do things manually

WARNING! This fix was created specifically for this user! If you are not this user, do not follow these instructions!
@{USER}: Ignore the above

Download the attached .zip file. Inside it, will be two folders, Packages and Manifests.

Create these folders if they do not already exist: C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Servicing\Packages\ and C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\winsxs\Manifests

Extract Packs.zip onto your Desktop. Please place the contents of my Desktop\Packages in C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Servicing\Packages\ and my Desktop\Manifests in C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\winsxs\Manifests.

Note that for you there are no manifests, and so just ignore this step.

DO NOT place the .zip file in that folder, or the folders themselves. Make sure that a lot of files are in each of those Checksur folder.

Re-run the System Update Readiness Tool, and get me another copy of C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log.

Also, please retest Windows Updates (with fingers slightly crossed, no matter how much we both know that that won't help! lol.)

Thanks a lot!

Several months ago I was having bad problems with Windows Update. I finally got ahold of Microsoft's remote service. They had it fixed in an hour (LogMeIn is the service that some folks in India take over your system). Anyway they fixed it and ever since it has worked perfectly, until now. I've tried manual installs and read about and tried several fixes with no results. I've done searches on these two KB's and all I could find out was that I'm not the only one with problems installing these two.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I just recently bought a new PC and everytime I try to install windows updates on it, it stays at checking for updates. I installed win7 the first time, and then registered my activation key and then tried to update the updates, but it did not work. I tried again a second time with a clean install of win7 and activation and again it did not work. So I once again tried a clean install but this time I didnt activate my win7 registration key and it actually let me download some updates. Once I had downloaded them all I registered my windows again. Today however I try to install updates and again it just stays at checking for updates. Is my key faulty? is it my PC?

check your date and time in your BIOS and your windows date and time. It's crucial this the time is accurate and of course, check web connectivity. Make sure you can load webpages and stuff and no access is being blocked to microsoft servers.

When I try to start windows update it runs for a few seconds and then a box pops up with the following.

Restart your computer to install important updates.
Windows can’t update important files and services while the system is using them. Save any open files and restart you computer and then try to check for new updates.

I have restarted my computer many times but the same pop up comes up when I try to download updates.

I have downloaded and run the following Microsoft troubleshooting files to no avail.

MicrosoftFixit50123 and WindowsUpdateDiagnostic

Any thoughts on a way forward please?
 

A:Windows Update Failing

No guarantee on this, but I'd try a shut down (instead of restart). Has worked for me, but I have no idea why.

I have Office 2000 Professional SR-1 SP-3 installed. The OS is Windows Professional XP SP-3. All software is legitimate.

Whenever I run Office Update, the progress bar reaches the 40% mark and
then the program aborts.

I have tried running the repair utility included in Office 2000, ran the installation utility, turned off my firewall, and I have tried every suggestion in this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304498
…but nothing seems to work!

I am able to manually install updates, but would prefer being able to run Office Update to do that.

How can I get Office Update to work again?

Thanks.

When I install this update, it shows that it has been installed successfully. The veent viewer describes that it has been successfully installed but it is still not getting applied. During reboot, it shows that we were unable to configure the update. I have followed all the steps in the windows forum and the prerequisite. I have followed the steps that were mentioned in the below article.

Well, on my laptop it's failing. On reboot it's trying to uninstall but taking a really long time. Hope it comes back. Anyone else having it just not even installing at all? The rollback took nearly 45 minutes.

A:Windows 8.1 update failing

Not had any problems here, I've just done it, well the usual updates first, all 8 of them 2 of which were for Office 2007. Then the big one done on its own.
All downloaded and installed without problems and looking at the Update History they all succeeded.

Do you have any other problems with this machine, have you been able to install updates before ?

Hello

My last BIOS update has failed and now my laptop Satellite PrU400 PSU45E is out of order.
I want to use the Crisis Recovery Disk with an USB floppy drive but I don't know the key combination to run the boot-block.
Is anybody can help me?

Best regards

A:Satellite Pro U400 BIOS update failed - What is BIOS Boot-block access

Hi

I wondering what Crisis Recovery Disk do you have ?:|
In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.

In my opinion you shouldn?t not try any ?Crisis Recovery disks? which you fond in the net? this can lead to mobo damage?

Hello everyone I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn t find any kind of solution update BIOS B590 failure! Lenovo BIOS FLASH! Black... for my problem Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system which also previously was Windows Ultimate x 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 Lenovo B590 BIOS update failure! BIOS FLASH! Black... 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 tryed resetting the bios by taking out the battery but nothing would work I would be really thankful if anyone would be kind enough to point me one way or another as i do not know what to do at all nbsp Around the webz i found some way of creating a bootable usb flash drive where i would put a compatible version of BIOS from the site and then install it onto the laptop but i do not quite know how to do that properly either as the software they are pointing me to wincrisis is not working by any means

Hi there

Acer Support: Drivers & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 7535G

the 8.653.0.0 version. Every time I have tried to install it starts off fine but after a few minutes my desktops disappears and all I have is my background, when I press alt control and delete the screen comes up black leaving me no option other than to do a system restore.

I haven't reformatted for a long time and not to sure how to solve this problem, any help on this matter would be great.

A:ATI HD4570 drivers failing to update

Always download drivers from the manufacturer's website......in this case go to AMD's website. When installing a new video driver, you must download new driver to a place of your choice...ie desktop or documents folder, then uninstall current driver and reboot if not asked to. Upon reboot then install new driver from saved location.

Hello mystvearn

Sorry you seem to have been missed. Have you checked the Prerequisites before installing IE9 - Prerequisites for installing Internet Explorer 9 and also here - Troubleshoot problems when you cannot install Internet Explorer 9.
Also run the system file checker just incase there are any system errors - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

It may also be worth trying the offline installer from here - Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Windows Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7 64-bit Edition and Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit Edition
