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

Hello, I recently bought a Lenovo z50-75. A few hours ago I wanted to update my bios. It was updating and suddenly the laptop restarted and there was just a black screen. I could hear the fans running, but the keyboard doesnt work because if I press Caps Lock the light won't turn on. I searched on google and there I found some solutions (with pressing keys, removing battery, etc.), but none seemed to work.I also found something about the CMOS battery. I opened my laptop but I couldn't seem to find it. What can I do now?  Best regards, Max

A:Lenovo Z50-75 bios update failed > black screen

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Max !
From viewing your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual there is a motherboard CMOS battery.  Unfortunately from the illustrations in the manual it would appear that the CMOS battery on the Z50-70 is soldered directly to the motherboard and can not be easily removed.  In that case try removing the main battery pack again and then press the power button for 60 seconds or longer.  Hopefully the CMOS battery will not be able to keep up with the power drain and will clear the CMOS.  Then reinstall the main battery pack and try powering it up. 
For your reference, here is a link to the Hardware Maintenance Manual......
If that doesn't resolve the problem then I recommend you contact Lenovo Support for additional warranty service.

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?

Hi all, Need help on my Lenovo G40-70 that I've just bought 6 months ago where I accidently bricked the laptop after BIOS update. It seems during the BIOS updating process it when well but after 2nd reboot there's some message on the screen that the BIOS failed to update factory setting and it freeze on the message for quiet sometimes. After a long wait I decided to long press Start button for hard reboot. Then the scary part comes in where it seems the laptop can't longer shows the Lenovo logo & cannot even boot to Windows, just black screen. Hope anyone can help me on this and give some advice on what I'm going to do. I would like to tried myself first before ending up with warranty claim since I'm worried I've brick the warranty due to wrong BIOS update procedure....

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

Hi, For reasons I deeply regret I attempted to flash BIOS on an Acer netbook with the wrong BIOS as it turned out.
I've tried Acer's crisis disk facility with the correct version of BIOS on a usb stick at boot up (pressing Fn Esc) but no go.
The boot up gets as far as the Windows XP splash screen then I get the BSOD. It won't start in safe mode either, although I can get into the BIOS. I read somewhere that taking out the cmos battery will reset bios to default but can't get the keyboard out to expose the m/board anyway.

Is there anything left to try before I relegate the netbook to a paperweight.

While updating the BIOS on an Elite Group P4VMM2 motherboard, the update failed for no apparent reason and now I'm left with a nice boat anchor. However, not being one to give up quite so easily, I began to investigate, and have seen some reports that some motherboard's BIOS can be recovered. I have emailed the manufacturer's support team repeatedly, but they must be too tied up with more important matters to respond, so I'll ask the question here: Is it possible to recover the BIOS on an Elite Group P4VMM2 (ver 8.1) and if so how do I go about it? Any help on this matter is greatly appreciated.

I go and fix the time and date, afterwards I save it and exit, computer resets, same dilema, Bad CMOS, CHECKSUM error, try it again, same thing. The only way for me to get to windows is if i exit without saving, but then my time is always off, and its fairly annoying to constantly keep fixing it. Help anyone?

On several occasions HP Support Assistant has notified a BIOS upgrade available.  All have churned for a while, then reported that the update was unsuccesfull. I find this alarming to say the least, as BIOS updates are both critical, and potentially disastrous. Can you tell me why you keep on submitting updates that do not work? Should I bother to keep on trying to install them, or just consign them directly to the trash bin? This is a relatively new (this year) PC, and I find this severely undermines my confidence in the technical abilities of HP as a hardware provider. Windows 10ADSL then Ethernet cable (not wifi)18Meg down/1Meg upOS and Drivers kept up to date

Hi! I updated my Lenovo T430u's BIOS from version 2.11 to 2.13 this morning and everything is slow since. I mean: sloooow. 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

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.

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.

BTW the spelling errors are from the forum NOT mine.

Last night I just updated the BIOS (Because of  a message from Lenovo solution center app). After restart nothing than a black screen and the keyboard lighting up, also fan were still runing.I tried to connected a external monitor to see the desktop, but it seems there is no signal from the laptop.Is anybody here who had the same issue?Thanks in advance

Sorry to hear. I got my P40 four days ago and I upgraded the BIOS I think twice per Lenovo Center app), any chance you remember the BIOS version you were upgrading to?

Yesterday I tried to update the BIOS on my G710 as had been recommended to me, and the update froze halfway. From what I understand, the motherboard is likely bricked, but there should be a way to recover the BIOS. Can anyone help guide me with this? The BIOS is, I think, InsydeH20. What steps should I take from here? I have borrowed a working laptop and I have a flash drive to hand. Attached is a photo of the stalled update screen. Any help is much appreciated.?

I received the HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processors), and went through the installation.  I thought it was done.  Even after restarting the computer, it was there again the next day.  I started to install it again, and it stopped midway and now says I 'skipped' it.  It won't let me access it again so I can make sure it is completed.  Can you tell me where to access this update again?  Thank you.

After a fresh installation of Win10 i ran the Lenovo Update Tool to check for missing drivers. There was a BIOS update marked as critical so I installed it. The update was downloaded, the notebook rebooted and started installing the new BIOS. After maybe 10% of progress the notebook shut down. I tried to start it but the only life signs are two series of five beeps and the fans turning. I tried removing the battery pack and the bios battery for some hours, since this seemed to help some of the people with failed BIOS updates, but without success. Do I need a new motherboard now or is there another way to fix this?

I just saw an old thread here in the forum which I didn't found before. Really seems that I need a new board. As my warranty is over, do I have to pay the repair myself? Because I think I didn't do anything wrong.

I have tried to update the Bios to solve the loud noise problem on my yoga 910. But after I downloaded the latest Bios (you can get it from here), I can't run it. it said "the version of ROM file is not newer than that of the bios".. what does it mean, how I can solve the loud noise of Yoga 910?

Looks like it was already up to date.

A while ago I posted the possibility of upgrgrading my 6GB Lenovo V570 to 16GB.  It seemed as if it would be ok, although contrary to what Lenovo stated, but I chickened out.  Instead I've been living with my unit opearting very slowly and having the desktop manager and shockwave flash frequently fail.  It's not wonderful dealing with this and I have been looking for answers.  I thought about adding another couple of GB and along the way found suggestions on updating the drivers and bios.  Anyone savvy enough to advise on what drivers being updated would improve and how to accomplish this?  Also how is the bios updated wihtout screwing everything up?  I'm also thinking of doing a factory resore after backing up all the info on the unit.  Woudl a fresh start help or should I just  save my money and buy a new windows 10 computer?  Thanks!

I'm here to request Lenovo to update the bios to enable the M.2 2242 42mm for SSDs? This is really bad since our office PCs have been upgraded from T450s but it seems we are downgrading as we cannot use our originally bought M.2 2242 for the old T450s. Can you please update the bios to enable this the 2242 for SSDs? We need more diskspace to do some graphics and photo make ups on the road. The single 2280 is not enough since when we got the machines, only 512GB was available.

I don't believe that the PCI-e circuitry is still present for the WWAN card slot on the T460s so it's not as simple as a BIOS change to enable the previous functionality which was present in the T450s. There is a 1TB option for the T460s which is the PM961 SSD which could be installed in place of your 512gb SSD, but that may not be an option in your case.

Hi plorengo, welcome to the forums,
I would like to suggest that you contact support once more, and again request a fix under warranty, if on this occasion you also receive no satisfaction you should then simply state that you are not satisfied and wish to register a complaint, the CSR will be able to do this for you.
Please ensure that you note the name of the CSR you speak to and also request a call number, the call number will possibly be of help at a later date.
Please also see the following post from Mark_Lenovo;
Please give it another go yourself before contacting Mark and please let us know how you get on.

When did your warranty expire? If it expired less than 6 months ago, you might be able to get Dell to fix it, assuming they can get the board. They had a policy to replace a board -one time only- if it failed a Dell BIOS update within 6 months after the end of warranty. I don't know if that policy still exists.
Those are all different revisions of the same motherboard. I don't know what the differences are. They could be as simple as a different supplier for one of the components on the board all the way up to a change in the circuit layout.
Maybe Dell Spare Parts can tell you about the differences among the 3, or at least tell you which is the most recent revision,  even if they don't have the boards available...?
All three support the H77 chipset which is a key issue.
Look at your motherboard for the sticker to see what version you have now. If you can't find out about specific differences, you may want to get one that's the same version, assuming it's one of the choices available.
You should look elsewhere if Impact doesn't have the revision you want and/or for price comparisons. And always ask if the board is new, used, refurbished and about the warranty.

A:Lenovo G580 20157 bios 62cn97ww update problem

hi adarsh_savant,
I think you may have concern in this thread,
Here the suggested solution from neokenchi that helped.
1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)
Hope this helps,

Hey folks,

New user here. Just updated my laptop, a Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon, to 1.26/1.19 bioses, from the Lenovo website. After the BIOS updated, my PC rebooted and immediately BSODed with 0x0000009C (0x0000000000000006, 0xFFFFF880009EEB30, 0x00000000FE000000, 0x0000000000801136).

I am unable to do anything- system repair, safe mode, etc. I also do not have a CD drive on this machine so no OEM repair either! I am typing this from my phone.. Also got a new job where I need this baby and majorly worried now. If anyone can please help, I would be greatly appreciative.

Hi guys,

Yesterday I did a fresh install of Windows 7 64-Bit and updated the laptop. The BIOS update sadly froze the PC and I had to shut it down. As one would expect... the Laptop didnt start.

When I press the poweer button, the Powerbutton and the Satellite Nameplate lights up and I get one long beep followed by two short beeps + the screen remains black.

Could someone tell me the key combination I need to press in order to enter the recovery mode to reflash the BIOS?

Does anyone know if I need a floppy USB drive to reflash the BIOS or if flashing from a USB thumb drive is possible... I dont see how I could fit a 2,3 MB Bios file on a 1,44 MB floppy disc.

A:Satellite P300-212 (PSPCCE) - BIOS update failed


There is no BIOS recovery mode that you can enter by pressing a key combination. Therefore special BIOS recovery tools are necessary they are compatible to the notebook.

That means the ROM module where BIOS is stored can only be reflashed from an authorized service provider because the guys have special tools for this.

Please get in contact with the technicians, they will help to sort this out: > Support & Downloads > Find an authorized service provider

Good luck! :)

Hi I have just attemoted to update my T530 bios to the latest release 2.67 - Relaese date 9/12/2016 and it has failed. Now I am left with a dead - bricked machine. All I have on start up is a black screen. Both volume buttons, Think light and Keyboard backlight come on for a moment on start up and it ries to look at the hard drive for 2 seconds and that is it.Machine Type   2392-APU Can anyone help with BIOS recovery? I have tried the CRISIS recovery method recomended on another similar thread, but it does not appear to work here as it appears the BIOS file is to complicated. In the mean time I would be wary of this update.

Hi I know failed need help A300D-156 recovery update I - BIOS Satellite with this is is quite old computer but until now it was just enough good for my usage Anyway after I have done a recovery of the Windows Vista OS that came with my computer I got a notification from one of Toshiba tools that there is an updated BIOS available for my computer I've downloaded it and tried to perform an update After the process had probably finished the computer did not react to touchpad and keyboard I was not sure if the update was Satellite A300D-156 BIOS update failed - I need help with recovery really successful especially because it looked like the computer was is frozen state So I left it for next - minutes but no change Then I decided to reset it as even the power button was not working So I had to remove the battery and unplug the AC power and the computer was almost dead then Now it is so that when I press the power button it seems to power up but the screen remains blank the fan is working and Windows is not booting It just makes one short scratching noise from the DVD drive and this is all My question is what is the recovery procedure in my situation I've tried to look for some potential help on the Internet and I found some forum posts or articles stating that there are some recovery procedures for different BIOSes but what is the procedure for my BIOS The only thing that I found quot working quot was that if I press the power button holding Fn Esc keys the laptop powers on with flashing power button But how to force BIOS recovery flashing procedure Thanks in advance for any help

A:Satellite A300D-156 BIOS update failed - I need help with recovery

This is really stupid situation now. You will not be able to fix it with some simple recovery operation. BIOS is screwed up.
In the past I was not faced with such situation but on this forum I found very interesting thread about BIOS ?recovering?. Please take some time and visit this thread.

Maybe this will help you with your machine.

I am trying to update my BIOS Because my battery is at zero precent and not charging. I have tried running the bios update .exe through administrative cmd, with and without /Forceit, /Forcetype, and /jabilBattery is healthy, AC adapter is correct wattage but unrecognized by my current bios, wich is what is prompting me to update. Please. Help.

A:BIOS Update failed. Battery Below Ten Precent. Dell XPS 15z

Flashing the BIOS with only 10% battery and no AC current is an invitation for making a brick. I recommend you do not attempt flashing the BIOS that way.Does the laptop currently boot to Windows or at least POST?Is the charger branded to the laptop? Did the charger ever work with this laptop?Has this battery previously worked in that laptop? How old is the battery?message edited by OtheHill

Hi all, I just updated the BIOS (Initiated from Win10), after restart nothing than a black screen and the keyboard lighting up for a second. (Thinkpad Yoga, P40)  I tried to hard reset it (power button shutdown), again in combination with Shift-F8, drained the battery and tried again. But still dead as a dodo. Some ideas before I start the whole support procedure at Lenovo?  Many thanks in advance!

Otherwise you need help from Toshiba authorized service provider in case to reflash the BIOS ROM module.

Hi, i recently installed XP after a crash. But some drivers are not available and unable to find since it is an assmbled one. My mother board is intel desktop D845GVSR. After XP installation, I update my bios and installed some drivers. After restart it displayed a message that bios updated successfully and then nothing happened- OS not loaded and no control on key board and mouse. I restarted the system using force restart button and now windows loaded but still mouse and keyboard not working. Then i removed the power cable while system is on and after now only displaying "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device. Since I can't use keyboard, nothing is possible to change the boot order in bios. I tried to reset bios by removing battery of board and through bumpers but still... pls help me.

I had a very similar experience.  Here is how I fixed it. Download sp41954.exe from here  or search for it.  Double-click on the file to launch the application.  If you are running Vista or higher, close the program, go to where it extracted (C:\swsetup\sp41954) and find the file FirmwareUpdater.exe.  Right-click on the file and select properties.  Click the Compatibility tab and select "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)".  Launch FirmwareUpdater.exe and create a bootable diskette.  If you are running XP, you can create the bootable diskette from the sp41954 directly. Power off the laptop.  Connect the USB Floppy drive with the newly created diskette to the laptop.  Hold down all four arrow keys while turning on the laptop.  Continue to hold down the four arrow keys until you see either the num-lock or cap-lock key flashing ( don't remember which).  It should be reading from the diskette.  After a minute or so, the laptop should reboot and operate normally. When I did this, I disconnected everything from the laptop and removed the battery.  I do not know if it was necessary to remove everything or not. Hope this helps.

I just got a used M4600, and the currently installed bios is A08. When I try to update to A16, it restarts, says it's updating firmware, but fails at 0%. It gives no reason, and no error code as far as I can tell. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

A:Bios update failed - Dell Precision M4600

That is NOT the issue! There is nothing wrong with the M4600 motherboards per se.
Everybody has been trying to find why when trying a BIOS upgrade, the system immediately fails with a basic "BIOS Update Failed" and no specific error code or more explanation. The answer is in the PDF document below - that is the message displayed when BIOS authentication fails!
You just have to look up the Dell Signature Firmware 'feature' that was introduced into a number of laptop incl the M4600.  Download PDF doc. That was a feature introduced per NIST requirements.
In a nutshell, they changed the way BIOS authenticates a BIOS file before it will use it to update the BIOS & EC firmware. The M4600 is in the list of "Legacy Systems" where this was introduced. Basically, these systems did NOT have the Signature Firmware when produced. 
Version A04 introduced this feature. After you install that, you will have an option to turn the Signature Firmware requirement On (default is Off). Once turned On, it can NOT be turned off! 
The problem starts in BIOS ver A08. Something in the code is wrong. Because on some M4600s it updates the BIOS AND Activates the Signature Firmware requirement. After that, the system will NOT authenticate ANY other BIOS versions so you will NOT be able to upgrade past version 8!
I manage many, many systems for a company. I am currently sitting on 33 (yes, that many) M4600 with that exact same situation!
A motherboard swap does not correct the issue; all it does is give you a new BIOS chip to mess around with.

Downloaded Dell Vostro 3700_A12 to update BIOS. Ran from Win10 GUI, but shortly faded to black and has been dead since. I've attempted to reload the A10 BIOS from USB Drive after removing battery and holding down "End" key until after inserting AC power plug. Still only keyboard indicators flash in succession and HD flickers, but nothing following.

Hi, I have repeated experience of failed BIOS firmware update on Dell e5570. More precisely the part
"Sending Intel (R) Management Engine Firmware Update" always hangs on 100% and never finishes.  The annoying thing is that laptop cannot be shutdown via power button (even with the long press) and I have to wait hours till my battery dies :-(
Im trying to update BIOS from 1.6.3 to 1.7.3. In the end, I have 1.7.3 BIOS version, but Embedded Controller stays on A07 instead of A11 so I got my PC into middle of versions :-( First broken thing I noticed is WiFi always turned off after wake from sleep or after startup.
Dell support, please help. I need new BIOS (and Embedded Controller) to resolve some NVMe and other issues with the laptop.
Thanks, M.

I have an Optiplex 9010 AIO. This morning I was trying to update the BIOS of my system, from A10 to A13. During the update process it showed an error: "ME FW Update Failed: Internal error: FWU_Buffer " - please see the photo below. Although the update failed on the Management Engine part, it still boots up and running OK. I tried couple of times to update the BIOS, and each time I got the same error. I tried to flash the A12 and A11 BIOS as well, A12 gives same error, and A11 has the same Management Engine version hence no use.
Any help on this is very much appreciated!

Hello, could any of the Lenovo staff take a look at the link for V100 here I'm unable to find V100 anywhere on Lenovo's support site - eventhough its mentioned in the above link. V200 I can easily find but that does not help when its a bios for V100 I need! Hope someone can fix this and link to the correct page for drivers and bios updates. Thank you in advance JBJ
