T440S Serial shows up as R8000000 in BIOS

2014-11-17, 12:42 PM

I recently bought a t440s from a friend, And i wanted to lookup its warranty.

The serial under the battery is recognised by the lenovo warranty check, But in the bios the serial shows up as R8000000, Could this become a problem for me in the future?

 

Sincerely,

Erkan AKdag

As you know the serial number of your laptop you can use the firmware upgrade CD-ROM to update this information yourself.

Hi Erkan AKdag,

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

As per the query we understood that you are facing the issue with incorrect system serial number on your ThinkPad T440s.

I think the system board has been replaced and the serial number is not updated after replacing the board. I strongly suggest you to visit nearby service center for further assistance.
Lenovo customer support

Hope this helps.


Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
