Z510: Complications with new bios update 8DCN39WW

2014-06-15, 10:26 AM

This bios update was released to solve major bug which caused processor frequency to get stuck at 0.77 GHz if started in battery mode.. The details can be seen in existing forum thread... 

However post update there have been several other problems:

 

1. For some random times the turbo boost fails and processor frequency dosn't go beyond default speed.

2. Processor frequency stays high when resumed from sleep 

3. The serious of all... Since 3 days it is taking a decade to boot when started after a shutdown i.e. it stays at boot logo for nearly 35 seconds

Reinstalling windows 8 x64 OS has been of no use...
Even the boot options menu takes similar time to appear when powered on.. 

Restarts aren't affected with this issue 

The video for the last problem: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dlk46cr4pwojomv/video-2014-06-15-15-30-53.mp4

earlier it used to stuck at specific frequency when resumed from sleep and never used go down until a restart
but later after some windows update it got resolved

the 1st problem can be seen only if one has constant look over frequency ... in normal use you won't be able to differentiate

u could try getting into bios by switching off the laptop and then press One Key Recovery button...
it would then power on itself and show you a menu with BIOS as one of the option
other options would be boot, recovery etc
