Re: T431s - Can't update BIOS - WINUPTP.exe "Error code = 183"

A new BIOS version 1.07 is released. Could give it a try and see if that version works better.

Thanks., The new bios update worked, however, I'm noticing new problems now. My system is unresponsive intermittently in windows 8 (worked flawlessly before the flash). I will follow up after more testing.

 

Problems so far:

After logging in, explorer crashes (and restarts every 5-10 minutes).

Click on the charms bar and "settings" does nothing.

Windows+R does not bring up run dialog

Circle of wait pops up consistently.

Strange that a BIOS update could cause problem like you describe and i don't really have any idea how it should be solved. All i can say is that i have no issues after the BIOS update on my computer. I did a BIOS update from 1.06 to 1.07.

A few reboots worked.

 

My T431s is working great now. Last thing left to test is the display port issue that was fixed in the last bios update.

gan,

Many thanks!

 

Everything works flawlessly. Thanks for posting the link to the updated bios, since the thinkpad system update is still not auto updating it.

 

The bios update fixed my display port issue as well and I now have 2560x1650 on my 30 inch monitor.

 

Best,

BBITHelpdesk
