Lenovo Vantage keeps suggesting the same updates

2021-07-12, 3:15 AM

Hi there, thanks for your help,

 

The last 5-6 times I've run Vantage system update, it has suggested these 8 updates which have already been installed (checked comparing driver version numbers):

- Intel Thunderbolt Controller Driver - 10 [64] - 17.4.80.550
- Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework (Windows 10 Version 1709 or later) - 10 [64] - 8.4.11000.6436
- Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solution Driver - 10 [64] - 2.0.369.1
- Intel 8265 Wireless LAN Driver (Windows 10 Version 1809 or Later) - 10 [64] - 20.70.21.2
- Lenovo Power Management Driver - 10 [64] - 1.67.17.54

- Intel Management Engine Software for (Windows 10 Version 1703 or Later) - 10 [64] - 2112.15.0.2221
- Intel PRO/1000 LAN Adapter Software for (Windows 10 Version 1809 or Later) - 10 [64] - 12.18.9.8
- Integrated Camera Driver for Realtek (Windows 10 Version 1709 or later) - 10 [64] - 10.0.19041.20176

 

However, this driver is suggested, fails consistently, and the last successful update (version 31241) was in 2018:

- Realtek Media Card Reader Driver - 10 [64] - 10.17134.31242

 

How can I get this last one to install correctly, and prevent Vantage from installing the same 8 previous ones over and over?

 

Thank you!

I just followed the instructions here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n27x805w.txt and the driver version in Device Manager is the correct one, although the driver date differs (5/10/2018 in Device Manager, 2018/10/31 in the readme file). So all the recommended updates are installed, but Vantage is suggesting them anyway. I will try uninstall/reinstalling Vantage as suggested elsewhere.

Which app should I uninstall, Lenovo Vantage Service (26 MB), Lenovo Vantage (42.2 MB), or both?

I can't find where to download Vantage, so can I just use Automatic Driver Update/System Update instead? Do they do the same thing as Vantage anyway?

Hello Poldark , Could you kindly please provide more deteails information about your machine? Go to system information to check. 1、Your product name and system model. 2、Operating system version for your product. 3、Checking current Realtek Media Card Reader Driver driver version and date in Device Manager.

But as long as System Update does the same thing, I'm all good.

Another strange thing that just happened: (Nothing to do, it's just strange.)

 

I just ran System Update to check for updates, and it suggested updating the Intel Chipset Driver version 10.1.18228.8176 (dated 2019/12/25!), and following the readme instructions on determining current version, I found that the currently installed version is from 2018.

 

It's curious that Lenovo Vantage never suggested that update in a year and a half, nor System Update -- unless it was just pushed to the queue by Lenovo maybe?

 

Thanks

P

Hello Poldark, although the driver date differs (5/10/2018 in Device Manager, 2018/10/31 in the readme file) 2018/10/31 is not the driver date and it just record edit issue date in readme file. Could you try to reinstall Realtek USB 3.0 Card driver to fix issue? Readme file has UNINSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.
