Re: Can not update bios z580

Do you have a fully charged battery installed and AC mains connected?

Re: Can not update bios z580

I have the laptop plugged in and the battery is on but it is say plugged-in not charged 0% and the orange battery led on the laptop is blinking.I can not charged the battery and I have try most of the ways I have read in this forum to fix it.That's the reason I want to update  the bios, because something is wrong with the battery.

Did you solve the problem? I have an Ideapad 700-15 and get the same error. Also I have the same problem with the battery.

Re: Can not update bios z580

The problem that you are encountering is that the physical battery is not plugged in. Make sure to plug in the external battery and try again. If not, then your computer is having issues communicating with the power supply. AC power only will not do either. The BIOS needs to be updated and the computer/software thinks that the bios will likely fail which in the end it would be useless if the bios does not get updated, which in the end will render your computer useless. Trust me, I learned the hard way. A good ol' 10 hours on a Saturday, which payed off in the end.

 

Anyway, good luck on your endeavours.

Re: Can not update bios "ERROR 220 - Failed at power status check! Status =223"

Notice the cbp 30 in the first line. That means the battery has to have at least a 30 percent charge to continue. After your BIOS install fails in the command-line-interface, just copy that first line (of the version you are installing) and paste it. Then back arrow to the "cbp 30" and then backspace to delete the 3. This means the battery could be at zero percent charge to continue. Look at the last line in my reply. C:\D3CN39WW>WinFlash64 /file D3CN39WW.cap /sd /sn /silent /cac /cbp 30 /shutdown /cvar /bbl /bcp Phoenix SCT Flash for Windows V2.35.0.0, Build 151016 Copyright (c) 2011-2015 Phoenix Technologies Ltd. The tool will start flashing in 5 seconds, press ESC to abort. Error: not enough battery life. Current: 0, threshold: 30 ERROR 220 - Failed at power status check! Status = 223. C:\D3CN39WW>WinFlash64 /file D3CN39WW.cap /sd /sn /silent /cac /cbp 0 /shutdown /cvar /bbl /bcp
