Lenovo S10-3C bios update

Hello! I want to increase memory amount on S10-3C, but this requires bios update. In this post https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-U-and-S-Series-Notebooks/S10-3-Ram-issue-S10-3s-2GB-Memory-Upgra... was a link to new version, but it gives me error. Where i can download this new version?

 

Thanks!

Re: Lenovo S10-3C bios update

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

That discussion you linked to along with the link to a BIOS update was for the S10-3 model.  You have the S10-3C model for which there are NO BIOS updates available.  Sorry.

 

For your reference, here is the correct link to that BIOS upgrade for the S10-3.  Please note that the README does NOT note that this update is for your model..........

Re: Lenovo S10-3C bios update

Wait, this is quote from that topic:

 

  1. s10-3 bios v37 (2ACN37WW.exe)
    Change history:
    Fixed the memory compatibility issue
  2. s10-3c bios v13 (3CCN13WW.exe)
  3. s10-3t bios v62 (24CN62WW-win.exe)

My bios version is 3CCN09WW, so there was an update to version 3CCN13WW for s10-3c?

Re: Lenovo S10-3C bios update

You are correct.  My apologies for overlooking that reference to your model.  

 

Unfortunately I can not find any links to that BIOS version for your model.  I will keep looking and will post back if I find something.

Re: Lenovo S10-3C bios update

Adax, fellow Forum Moderator NateS was able to locate a newer BIOS version for the S10-3c model.  A link to that version had been posted in an old forum discussion.  The post contains a link to version 3CCN16WW which is even newer than the one you are looking for.  According to the README it contains the following fixes and improvements....

 

Updated Information:
Solved DDR III memory compatibility issue

 

Since BIOS updates are cumulative, this version will contain all the fixes and improvements found in the earlier BIOS versions.

 

For your reference, here is that discussion........

Direct download link to version 3CCN16WW........

Download link to version 3CCN16WW's README file........

As with any BIOS upgrades on an older systems, they are done so at your own risk.
