TCG-compliant functionality-related error (might be the BIOS code validation failure)

2019-06-25, 18:20 PM

Purchased a Thinkpad T470 in June, 2017 from Lenovo US store. The laptop had been my daily driver for my works since then. Last week when I started to turn it on it didn't start-up. No boot screen or else. Instead it ended up with a weird musical beep tone. Later I googled it found and the term "Smart-beep". Eventually diagonalised with the Lenovo PC diagnostics app and the error was translated as Code: 10284"TCG-compliant functionality-related error (might be the BIOS code validation failure)"- which tells that the severity is Informational. And also suggests to change the system board which might gonna be pretty expensive as I have no warranty left for this. 

 

 

What to do with it now?

Hi, I had same problem on my X1C 6th at the day before yesterday when my laptop is booting into Windows 10 login screen by fingerprint, it shows error and can't login, then beep sound occur after I push power button forced restart.

After that, I contact with Lenovo service center in Taipei, my laptop is already fixed and return to me around 1 and half day. (My laptop is during one year warranty state)
