Issue#500: Lenovo - Always on USB settings no longer in Helix 2 BIOS or Lenovo settings app

  • I have a Helix 2 (20CG) and have issues of fast battery drain during connected standby state. The USB xHCI controller was active 100% of the time and I confirmed that USB device was still charging when the Helix 2 was in standby. Also noticed that there used to be config about always on USB in older BIOS (1.7x I believe) and older Lenovo Settings app. However always on USB settings is no longer there in latest BIOS 1.83, the updated Lenovo Settings app does not have it either. Wondering if the new versions removed such settings so always on USB is stuck at enabled. Is there any way to disable always on USB in such a case? Thanks.

  • Issue#3956: Lenovo - Yoga 2 Pro 4200U Enters Bios Settings Every Reboot

    When trying to troubleshoot a Yoga 2 Pro 4200U for a family member we decided to do a factory reset of the machine. After resetting it to factory settings, every time we reboot the beeps and shows "Entering Setup" at the Lenovo splash screen, then enters the Bios "Thinkpad Setup". No matter what changes we make to the settings, exiting and saving changes reboots the computer and sends us back into the Bios. The only way to get Windows to boot is to click "Exit Discarding Changes". Windows boots successfully then, so the computer is functional, but it is still quite an annoyance that you have to enter then exit the Bios utility every time you restart the computer. Google Fu only turned up scattered related issues, some of them pointing to the potential of a bad main batter pack or CMOS battery, with something related to the motherboard not knowing what Date/Time it is. Is there any likelihood that this is actually correct? I'm loathe to blame hardware that was working perfectly fin

  • Issue#11124: Lenovo - BIOS Settings Blank with Cursor after BIOS Update

    I just updated our RD 630 to BIOS version 9.60 (latest). The BIOS update seems to work without errors. Upon rebooting, I can no longer get into the BIOS settings. If I press F1 at startup, I see the usual startup screens, and then after that, all I see is a black screen with a blinking cursor in the middle. Nothing else. Everything else works. I can still select boot devices (F12) and the system boots into Windows. Only the BIOS setup is affected. I tried reloading the BIOS twice using DOS boot. After searching online, I also tried loading it from Windows. The fans are louder at startup after the BIOS update from Windows. Otherwise there is no difference. Can anyone suggest ways to get the BIOS Settings screens back? Thanks!

  • Issue#226504: Lenovo - Question about Lenovo K450e and BIOS + RAM settings

    Hello! I have been an owner of the K450e for a while and have just begun to upgrade its graphics card, power supply, and RAM. However, I've run into a problem in the RAM part. The particular K450e that I have comes with two 4GB RAM sticks, specificially Micron's MT8JTF51264AZ-1G6. They are 1600 MHz, 1.5V, and 11-11-11-28. Today, I bought two more 4GB RAM sticks from Amazon, but although they match as 1600 MHz and 1.5V, the sticks are 9-9-9-24. After browsing through many forums, I've come to the answer that BIOS's can either have an auto function where the faster RAM sticks simply perform at the slower RAM sticks level or that BIOS's can be used to manually set the faster RAM sticks to the slower one's settings. However, I've come to the realization that the Lenovo Motherboard Model #10181's BIOS does not have the ability to manually set the settings. Now, for the ultimate questions:1.) Does this motherboard have the "auto" setting that will simply cause my faster R

  • Issue#526278: Lenovo - ThinkPad L460, unable to get BIOS settings via WMI

    We have been using the official instructions and VBscripts from Lenovo to configure the BIOS on ThinkPad T440, T450, L440 and L450 laptops via WMI. This has worked well for a good while now. A few weeks back we received our first batch of ThinkPad L460 laptops (with Windows 10), and I went to check on and update the BIOS scripts. The first thing I tried was to get a list of all available BIOS settings, first using the ListAll.vbs script (available from the link above) and then via the PowerShell commands listed in the PDF (skl_deploy_01.pdf). On the previous ThinkPad models the ListAll.vbs script would return a long list of avilable BIOS settings (or "configuration items") along with their current and possible values. On the L460 it returns nothing at all, not even an error message: C:\temp\Script>cscript ListAll.vbsMicrosoft (R) Windows Script Host versjon 5.812Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. Med enerett. C:\temp\Script> This is not the same output

  • Issue#837965: Lenovo - Settings App Will not Open

    I have a Lenovo Y50-70 and am having trouble opening the Lenovo Settings App. When I click on the battery gague and the "Lenovo Settings" short list shows up and then I click on "Go to Lenovo Settings" at the bottom of the menu, a grey screen pops up for a few seconds and then goes away. The app does not appear in the control panel list in Add/Remove Programs but the ICON ONLY appears in the Windows Apps & Features list. To clarify while most of those apps have the app name and developer with an "uninstall" button next to it, for this one only the Lenovo Settings icon (3 vertical sliders), "LENOVO INCORPORATED" and "Uninstall" are present, no actual app name (which should be "Lenovo Settings"). Because the name is missing this app appears at the bottom of the Apps & Features List. Furthermore, when I try to uninstall it from Apps & Features, I get an error message "Cannot uninstall at this time...0x80073cf6". So in short, the app doesnt work, I can't uninstall/rei

    I'm trying to find out if anyone knows when/if lenovo is planning to get a bios update out out for these laptops to address the processor stuck at .78ghz while running on battery proglem. It appears to be an identical issue that the Z510 guys have been fighting with in this 40 page long post. I have confirmed it appears to be a very similar issue as throttlestop will resolve the issue when checking the 'prochot' checkbox, but this is not a viable/safe long term solution to the problem. If we can't get this issue resolve, i'm going to have several dozen of these laptops we are going to scrap and replace and I'm really not wanting to have to do that.

    I hope someone can help me with this issue. Bought this laptop about a month ago and started having display issues. I have searched the forum on this issue and haven't found a resolution particular to my laptop model (then again, I could have overlooked something). Issue started a couple days ago presumably after a Windows update and started getting a message saying "display driver stopped responding and has recovered..." The screen kept blacking out, hang up then display the desktop. This happened over and over and every 4th or 5th time the laptop would restart. I eventually started getting "Windows didn't load correctly" and I had to boot into "safe mode". After 3 days of searching, I found many "resolutions" that included uninstalling the drivers and downloading the latest which I did, but to no avail. The only way I can use the laptop is to NOT reinstall the AMD drivers. Hopefully the following information will help someone with more technical experience provide a solutio
