Unabillity to update BIOS on ThinkPad L440

2021-04-15, 8:26 AM

Hello!

I have problem during try of update BIOS in my L440.

Installer in Windows 10 seems to be working properly and doesn't show any error alerts or something. But allways after automatic reboot there is nothing changed and my BIOS version is still the same as before.

I have no an external CD drive station under hand at the moment. Is there something what i should check to fix this issue and eventually update BIOS on Windows 10 level?

Hi wiki013579,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Try resetting the BIOS to default settings and then see if it updates : 

 

BIOS reset

- Select the Start button, then choose Settings > Update & Security > Recovery. Under Advanced startup, select Restart now. After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > UEFI Firmware settings

Or:
- Press the power button to completely shut down the unit.
- Press the F1 repeatedly on startup to enter BIOS.
- Navigate to the "Restart" tab
- Press "Load Default Settings"
- Save & Exit changes or F10.

 

Regards

I have got CD drive already but BIOS still do not update!

On the picture you can see step I came to:

 

Every time after few seconds laptop reboots twice and nothing changes or any special loading showing, identically as trying to update BIOS by program in Windows.

 

Is this possible that my motherboard is damaged?
