Re: T430s on AC -- Shutdown restarts, not shut down/power off

I retrieved the current updates and saw that there was one for the BIOS, but when I tried download the update, it just kept getting to the end and saying it could not download! So maybe I will wait awhile and try again. All of the other updates downloaded and installed fine, but of course the one that I really want is not cooperating!


I ran into the same issue with System Update so I went to the device driver matrix and downloaded it directly from there. That installed without any problems.

The second item, "BIOS update utility for Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - ThinkPad T430s and T430si ... "

 

Follow the download/extract/install instructions in the Read.Me file carefully.

I installed (carefully following the readme instructions) and the problem is solved! Yay for Dorian Hausman! Is it just me, but do I also sense that my computer is starting up even faster?  It is an SSD so always started very fast, but usually after loggin in, a few things seemed to need to "load" for several seconds and now that process is also eliminated. Thanks again!

Spoke to soon. Still having problem of computer restarting. I think it now only happens when I have an extermal monitor attached. Still very annoying and caused me to inadvertently leave my computer on for long periods of time without knowing it because I thought I shut it down.

Hmmm... too bad that didn't do it after all. FWIW I have my T430s attached via VGA to an external monitor most of the time and no longer have this issue. Perhaps something else is at play.
