Bios Update Problem

2017-10-02, 13:47 PM

Hi,

I own a Lenovo ideapad Z500 model 5931,windows 10 professional 64bit Operating system.

I've been looking everywhere for a way to update my bios since I still have the LENOVO 71CN45WW(V1.18) 10/05/2013 Version.

I even tried to get it from lenovo official website but the problem is that it only supports windows 8.1 64bit so I'm kinda confused... PLEASE HELP.

Hi DreamlessKai,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking with the official website here, showing the currently the most available is Version 71CN51WW(V1.21) 2013-10-17 for a fix for:

 

1. Add ¡±Hotkey¡± mode function
2. Fix the issue ¡±PrtSc key no function on BZ K/B¡±

 

Would you have the same issue?

If not then you should not have to as the machine was originally intended for Win 8.1.

Further forcing BIOS update may endanger a soft brick of your systemboard too.

 

Update us how it goes best for you.

 

Regards

Hi there !

Thanks for the reply..

the reason why I want to update the Bios is because my pc is taking like 2 hours to boot up and after searching online people recommend me to update it as an attempt to solve the issue

Hi DreamlessKai

 

You can try running diagnostics first or perhaps to try it with Windows 8 or in another harddrive to isolate probable cause.
