T580 Thunderbolt Firmware Pending

2019-08-21, 20:42 PM

I have a new T580 laptop that has stopped recognizing devices plugged into the Thunderbolt port. I've tried to update the firmware from https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/HT508988, but the page shows the firmware update as "pending." How can I get it going again?


Here's the info from the Thunderbolt application:


Thunderbolt Software

Software package version:

Application version:

Service version:

Controller driver version:

Networking driver version: Unknown


Thunderbolt Controller

Thunderbolt generation: Thunderbolt 3 (15BF)

Number of ports: 1

Security level: User Authorization (SL 1)

NVM Firmware version: 18.00

External GPUs supported: Yes


By the way, when I plug the same Thunderbolt into the USB-C power port, everything loads fine. So the problem seems to be with the Thunderbolt port.
