How to rollback ThinkPad BIOS Update Utility US and Intel Wireless WiFi Link for Windows XP?

2010-11-06, 23:13 PM

I have a T410 2522-AN4 running XP/Pro.

I installed a number of updates on 10/29 which seem to have exposed me to a 'Windows Delayed Write Failed'

error. I've rolled back 5 of the driver updates. I've turned off Write Caching. I've increased SystemPages to 24FFF.

I've run all the diagnostics I can find. No luck. Now I'd like to rollback/uninstall/? some of these other updates that

went in on 10/29. Two that I'm suspicious of are ThinkPad BIOS Update Utility US and Intel Wireless WiFi Link for Windows XP. Where would I go to find a way to rollback those two items?

 

Thanks for any help!

Previous BIOS versions should be found on the T410 driver matrix if you scroll down on the BIOS page. You'll have to pick the version that corresponds to whichever version you had previously.

Which hard disk (I think it's a \Device\HardDisk\Volume notation) the Delayed Write Failed error highlight?

Maybe turn on Windows cache flushing on the drive in Device Manager?

OK, I found the older BIOS versions. I'm still a bit uneasy about applying one of those.

 

The machine only has one hard drive. The C: drive. That is always the one that the 'Delayed Write Failed' message

appears for. There is always a specific file name in the message. Just one file. 

 

I'm not sure I understand about Windows cache flushing. There is an option available for the device 

called 'Enable Write Caching'. That was on originally. I tried turning it off. Didn't make any difference.

Which struck me as pretty odd, because it seems like that is the one major control over whether a write

is down immediately or cached. 

 

Thanks for any help!
