BIOS Update Version 1.70

Would you please advise why this update is still available on the Solution Centre, when it is a known fact to Lenovo that it causes problems if implemented?

Hi johnoo,

 

Appreciate your quick reply!Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for providing the requested information, as I see in the Lenovo support site for the system think centre M72e according to your model number the mentioned version of BIOS has been already taken out.

 

For your information, please find the link given below to find the latest version of BIOS.

Naveen,

I'm now confused.

The link that you have given states the latest BIOS is number F1KT70A

This is the same version as displyed on the Solution Centre.

But I installed this & it gave a major probem, the machine would not wake up from sleep.

A IBM engineer visited & had to change the Motherboard & revert back to BIOS F1KT65AUS, which gives no problems.

My question therfore is why is the latest BIOS that is known to have/give problems still showing on the Solution Centre & the program update listing.

I'm concerned because I may install this in error & give more problems

Your advise is very welcome

After a flurry of activity it's gone very quiet.

Are you thinking or seeking advise?

Re: BIOS Update Version 1.70

Naveen/Anybody.

What does it take to get a straight answer on this forum?

I have never known such a poor professional attitude

I ask a question, get an answer that in my opinion is incorrect & then silence

I believe that BIOS upgrade 1.70 causes problems when installed

So why is it still on the Service centre to install?

Simple question I think

Could I please have a straight answer?

Would somebody please help me on this.

I believe there is a problem with the latest BIOS that is on the Solution Centre.

I don't want to install & cause a problem.

Can I be assured that it will not give me any problems??

Thanks
