Does ThinkVantage System Update work with IdeaCentre desktops?

As in the title ... does the TVSU function correctly with IdeaCentre desktops?  I recently pruchased a K330 7727-3GU and receive a "no applicable packages" message before System Update finishes it's search.


If System Update does not work with IdeaCentre hardware then do we have to manuually download drivers and sw updates?

Re: Does ThinkVantage System Update work with IdeaCentre desktops?

Hi dcreich,


Idea systems and Think systems are two different systems with 2 different software packages.


TVSU won't work with Idea systems.  Yes, you manually update drivers and packages.Smiley Tongue


TVSU is usually a little behind anyway with current updates.  Updated drivers get posted to the driver page first, then they go into TVSU.


Idea systems have their own versions of power management, internet access management,  and security suite.

Start, all programs, under Lenovo, you'll find the applicable utilities for the Idea systems.


Think systems have them under Thinkvantage.
