Legion 7i Tower BIOS problem.

2021-05-03, 22:55 PM

I've had this machine for a few months now and have been having issues getting the BIOS to update, I checked for an update through Windows and Lenovo Vantage and both say there isn't one but the website says there was an update last month and my BIOS date is from last year. I downloaded it, ran as administrator and after it finishes nothing happens, its suppose to reboot and finish the update but it doesn't. I even manually rebooted the PC to see if that worked but it just booted up normally, what am I doing wrong?

Hello @Lomster,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Kindly post your MTM (ex 82B10000FR) so that I can look up the BIOS for this machine.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Hello @Lomster,

 

Sorry for the late reply.

 

Kindly post the BIOS version of your machine so I can check further.

 

  1. Type CMD in the search box. Select Command Prompt or CMD.
  2. The Command Prompt window appears. Type wmic bios get smbiosbiosversion and then press Enter. The string of letters and numbers following SMBBIOSBIOSVersion is the BIOS version. Write down the BIOS version number.

Regards,

Jack

Hi Lomster,

 

your PC has the Cometlake CPU, which uses the BIOS version O4LKT19A. The package contains two BIOS versions, one for Cometlake and the second one - BIOS Version O5FKT08A for Rocketlake CPUs from the mid-generation refresh of the model. There is currently no newer BIOS Version for your model.

 

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply! I was told to try a BIOS update via online chat support because I have no options for overclocking my RAM or any kind of fan control through the BIOS or even Lenovo Vantage. Does this particular machine not have that available?

There is no option to set XMP profiles under BIOS. It is a pre-built PC and comes pre-configured with the best values / settings straight out of the factory.

According the benchmarks, its running slower than it should with current factory settings. RAM and GPU are the main components that are under preforming compared to other machines like mine. Doesn't seem right for a gaming PC to not have gaming PC features.
