T480 stuck after saving BIOS settings

2019-06-19, 13:50 PM

HI,

First of all, sorry for my english, becaouse it's not my native language...

 

Recently i bought used lenovo T480 from ebay, and some upgrades.

Its 20L5000YUS model, with i5 8250u CPU, 8GB RAM, and 256GB Toshiba nvme ssd

 

Right after I bought it, i upgraded 8GB more ram (16GB in total), added 1TB BPX SSD NME, and another 128GB Toshiba nvme SSD (42mm)

 

Thinkpad is running great, but one thing bother me

 

After making change in BIOS and pressing F10 to save changes, Thinkapad just stuck. I waited 20+ minutes to reboot or something, but nothing. I alway have to turn off by foce (hold power 6 sec), and after that, system boots fine.

Settings maded in BIOS are saved, but system just wont reboot...

 

Here are video explaining what I'm sayinGo to https://youtu.be/blcT376bcAY

 

Things I already tried

Tried with power adapter attached and detached.

Tried to disable one hard disk, then another, same thing. Tested hardare with Lenovo UEFI boot, all seems OK.

I downgraded BIOS to 1.23 to check if there is a problem with BIOS version, but problem persist. (I returned later to latest BIOS 1.24)

Tried to disable secure boot, trid to erase all keys within BIOS, but problem is still here

 

I have two more thinkpads (older models) and I know that this is not normal behaviour.

 

Anyone know what's may be the problem?

 

P.S. Thinkpad is in waranty 650+ more days, but I'm not sure if I can claim warranty, becaouse i bought it used.

Solved! See the solution

Warranty rules are different in different countries.  In U.S. buying used is no problem, but I don't know about Serbia.  You need to check with local support.  Boot into the BIOS and load defaults (F9) and save.  See if that helps.  Pull out the hardware you added: memory, SSD, etc.  See what happens with the original configuration.  What is the boot order?  Remove network boot.

It seems that additional SSD i bought causing trouble.

I removed all hardware I bought to upgrade Thinkpad, and inserted one by one, testing meanwhile

 

SSD is BPX Pro NVME 1TB. This one.

 

When system is up, SSD working great, but causing described hungs after saving settings to BIOS or sometime after restart.

 

Maybe some of following BIOS updates can fix that compatibility issue.

 

Thanks for answers
