After BIOS update on ThinkPad Edge 13 (0217) fan not stopping

2013-11-26, 12:48 PM

Hello,

 

I upgraded BIOS to the latest 1.15 (for my Edge 13 type 0217) and I have upgraded my drive to SSD V300. Everything was working smooth with my newly fresh Windows 7 64bits installation.

 

Then the laptop was hibernated for one day on battery which ran out. I was not able to start the laptop, until I removed the battery and unplugged AC.

 

Now it looks like something happened in the BIOS because:

 

- fan is running full speed all the time

- Windows is booting slowly (there is 10 seconds delay before I see the Windows logo, then it goes fine)

- when I turn off the laptop, everything turns off but fan is going full speed and LED indicates its turned on (I need to hold the power button 10 secs to turn off hard)

 

I tried to disable Windows hibernate feature and removed the hibfil.sys file. Did not help.

 

Something bad had to happen in BIOS when battery fully discharged. I tried to load BIOS defaults. Did not help.

 

Anyone?

I tried to boot Linux from CDROM and the 10-15 secs delay (before I see SYSLINUX loader) is there, so this is a BIOS issue and not Windows 7 issue.

 

It was working fine, until I hibernated the computer. Maybe BIOS thinks it should be resuming before it realizes it is not hibernated anymore. What can I do?

So I have tried to RESET BIOS by removing the CMOS battery. It did not help.
