Re: U310/U410 BIOS Update password

Anonym,

 

don't know about a battery issue with U310 model,

 

I did a One Key Recovery (OKR) on my U310 back to the original OEM installations

and have since only removed that pesky and bothersome McAfee Anti Virus software

with McAfee Removal tool (MCPR) and installed ESET Smart Security 5 instead...

http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS101331

 

I've made screenshots of all U310 BIOS pages for you to compare,

please right click the pictures and select 'View Image'...

hope this helps...  Zehn

Re: U310 BIOS Update password

I am also receiving the Error Message while trying to do the bios update : ERROR 233 - Only secured capsule is allowed on a SecureFlash system! Status = 1.

 

This is after i run the program as administrator, using the password "lenovo" when prompted.

Hi Red,

 

what is your U310 original BIOS version, and to which version are you trying to update?

Re: U310/U410 BIOS Update password

Hello,

I have the same error (ERROR 233 - Only secured capsule is allowed on a SecureFlash system! Status = 1) when trying to flash my BIOS on Ideapad U310. What is strange is that my BIOS version looks newer that the latest version available for download...?

 

My BIOS version: 65CN90WW
 (computer was bought 1 month ago)

 

Any advice?

Thank you,

Marius

Hi Mtode,

 

usually it's not possible to flash to an older version BIOS.

 

Often BIOS version in recently produced machines is newer
than version on download page.

Re: U310/U410 BIOS Update password

I have the same problem on my IdeaPad U410. After entering the "Lenovo" password to unzip the BIOS update package, I get:

 

error 233    only secured capsule is allowed on a SecureFlash system. Status = 1.

error 105:   command line error status = 105.

 

The system was delivered with Windows 8. Lenovo support - please help.
