T61 System Update changes Product Type and Product ID

2011-05-11, 8:00 AM

Hi

 

My Notebook T61 has the following numbers

Type 6464-CTO XXXXXX 08/87

Product ID:  6464-V52

 

I try to make system update but System update shows instead of 6464-CTO  Product ID V52 is this a mistake?

Now I want to make Bios update,  there I can change it from V52 to CTO should I ?

you can only do that with a special diskette, but that is not available to the end user. Did you change the motherboard recently, or did this happen out of factory?

Thank you for your fast answer. I did not any change in my notebook. Everytime when I start System Update it chooses Product ID instead of Product Type -CTO. There is no option to change in System Update Produckt Id to Product Type.  There is still guaranty. Must I send my Notebook to Lenovo?

 

regards

they can do that if you within warranty. But it doesn't really affect the function of your computer or the warranty. CTO just means that it is configure to order.

your machine is covered in Germany, so you can use the local warranty service. Just contact the above number.
