T440p BIOS- Can't use Up/Down arrow keys [Defective?]

I think there's a problem with the current T440p BIOS as I cannot change menu items with the Up/Down arrow keys. The Up/Down keys work fine in Windows 10. Please fix !

Re: T440p BIOS - Can't use arrow keys

I contacted Lenovo by phone and they are of no help. The rep recommended that I use an external keyboard to change the settings, but it works fine in Windows 10 and I'm currently out of the country. He advised me to reflash to an older version but they aren't any older versions to roll back to on the support page !!

Hi,

 

I can't say that a roll-back is the fix, but there are older versions of the BIOS at the bottom of the page:

zoltanthegypsy, Thanks for the link !!


I tried flashing a revision down, and was the only option that would let me reflash the BIOS. Same thing, the arrow keys were unresponsive. I just bought a USB keyboard it miraculously worked !! I'm still not sure if it's a BIOS problem or it's just me...

Ok, I just realized that I have a faulty DOWN ARROW key. That explains it. GRRRR
