Re: Bios updated problems (n200 3000 0687)

Hello Mark,

sorry to use this thread, but as you are updating bios versions on the lenovo website could you do this as well for the N200 0769 model. Hope that would fix my stand-by / hibernation issues. Thanks a lot.

TIme for a little update from me.

Thankyou chilli_sauce for pointing out what the actual problem is. I spent a lot of time trying anything and would have continued on doing if it wasn't for you.

Another thanks to Mark for passing this info onto where it really matters and will hopefully get dealt with soon.

I gave a call to the Australian lenovo call center on Monday. The guy seemed a bit confused as I was the one helping him and telling him what do to. After a couple of call backs to check with the website maintenance team he realised that the BIOS drivers are indeed out of date. He promised to call me back within a day or so (I have no idea why though)

In the meantime my attractive laptop is still getting a nice long and well deserved rest.

Any updates from anyone else? eg managed to get a backup of 1.13 from someone else and would like to share.

Great news everyone

Lenovo just called me back with some good news. They said they had just finished building the latest bios and packaging it. However it is still unrealeased and will not be on the website for at least 3 weeks. However they have emailed me a copy to test myself. I asked for permission to send it to anyone else which they agreed to.

So i now have a working laptop again and a copy of that latest unrealesed bios update cd.

Here is a link to the latest bios

http://files.openomy.com/public/crazybus/66ET36WW.iso

if anyone has problems downloading it please pm me and ill email it to you

All,
 
Version 1.11 of the BIOS is now posted to the Lenovo support site for the 0687 model type. (66ET36WW)
 
 
Note that Bios for model 0769 is still at version 1.02 on the web.
 
Development is packaging the NEWEST version for BOTH systems, which I believe wll be 1.13 and I hope that we will have it posted by sometime next week.
 
Crazybus,
 
Thanks for helping out the community getting this uplevel BIOS in advance !

Gentlemen,
 
Does your DVD drive show up in Vista and XP?  Doesn't for me, but it shows up in the BIOS and boots etc..

Don't mean to be impatient but how's the team coming along with the 0769 bios Mark?  I'm eagerly awaiting it!
