Re: Lot of errors on support and download sites

[ Edited ]

Hi Mornsgrans,

 

Thanks for all the feedback.

 

1) The M55 and M55p BIOS pages have been fixed. Now both amt and non-amt links are on the driver matrix and driver listing.

 

2) "Very often a driver download page must be reloaded with F5-key until the driver(s) download link will be shown" this issue is fixed as well

 

3) Most of the broken links are also fixed.

 

4) BIOS update-Matrix:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=HT036373.

    This page is not being updated and you should refer to the driver matrix instead.

 

We will be continuously working to resolve the issues found on this thread. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you for the good news. - I will test the links this evening CEST.

 

One more issue i've found:

No audio-driver will be shown, even after i had expanded all items - pooh what a lot of clicks....

Isn't there and possibility to add an "Expand all" button on top of the list?

 

Edit:

Same issue on T60, R60 and R61 - pages

Re: Lot of errors on support and download sites

I have found more errors of a similar kind...

 

Corrupted or missing links in Drivers and software - ThinkPad R400 and R500 - http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-70439

1)   Conflicting data and typographical errors within the entries for: ThinkVantage Active Protection System.

  1. The matrice entry for: Windows 7 (32-bit), Vista(32-bit), XP, 2000, has a release date of 28 Jul 2011 and a version number of 1.74. It should be 1.75. Version 1.74 is the previous driver and was released on 21 Jan 2011. Document: ThinkVantage Active Protection System for Windows 7 (32-bit), Vista(32-bit), XP, 2000 – ThinkPad - http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-53150 contains the same typographical errors in 3 locations. An examination of the text file associated with the current driver has the correct version number of 1.75.

2)   Broken links: All entries for ThinkVantage Client Security Solution  result in a screen that says:

“Could not locate the requested document”.

Morngrans and Chuck,

I really appreciate your time spent in Lenovo Community and the eSupport page. Your continuous feedback helps the website team to strive to be better. I recognize your persistence in this matter so please do not stop doing so. =)

While your comments are helpful, maybe you could create a new topic of discussion for every different issue you have found? We will be really glad to see that as it is easier for everyone to follow whether it is fixed or not.

Many thanks folks!

Regards,
Cleo

Re: Lot of errors on support and download sites

hello Cleo,

that means to create 21 new threads only concerning the bugs mentioned in my posting above.

 

btw.:

What's going on with the forum software? Every click leads to "hang" and the page must be reloaded...

Re: Lot of errors on support and download sites

Hi Morngrans,

You may do it other way for easier to track. For example, split the reported issue into 3 different threads:

1) Links lead to  "Could not locate the requested document.":

2) Wrong entries in the driver matrix of X30, X31, X32

3) Links under "Notes" are dead...

Forum Software? Maybe a glitch during that time you encountered the issue?

Nearly one month is gone since my last bug-report above but there are still the files missing

Only the BIOS-simulator has been fixed and works worse than good

Re: Lot of errors on support and download sites

Driver download is not working with Opera browser. When I press that small black arrow pointing right, the "box" just won't open. This should be fixed too.
