Re: Thunderbolt firmware detect tool

2018-11-19, 21:19 PM

Hi All,

I was faced with this continuous pop-up message (I always muted it-- but that only works for so long before the 'chime' drives you insane!-- can't live life on Mute); mine was for a later version N20TF15W affecting an X280.

 

  1. Start here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com 
  2. Click 'Detect my serial number'-- it will launch, or prompt you to install, LSB (Lenovo Service Bridge).
    Note: this step isn't required-- you can search by product or manually enter your Serial Number and model type.
  3. Scroll down to the 'Top Downloads' section and click 'View All' to show all Drivers.
  4. Expand the 'Display and Video Graphics' section.
  5. Look for "Thunderbolt Firmware Update Utility for Windows 10 (64-bit)" -- verify your OS version and Model information.
  6. Click the 'Download' link, found on the far right of the listing.
  7. Run it and complete the installation-- Note: it's recommended, if not required that you have your AC adapter plugged in; there may also be some battery charge-level requirements before the Firmware Flash installer allows you to proceed.
  8. Restart is required! Please do not postpone or interrupt the process.
  9. Enjoy no more annoying pop-up!

The fix for my X1 Carbon 5th gen was simply to disable Lenovo System Update and Lenovo Vantage to automatically check for updates. Every time they do, the Thunderbolt toast notification gets displayed. Also happens if you run check for Lenovo updates manually.

The same "fix" worked for me too. When I first tried this, I forgot that I still had Lenovo System Update installed, and just set Lenovo Vantage to not auto check, so I kept getting the random Thunderbolt toast notifications. Once I set Lenovo System Update to also not auto update, my random Thunderbolt toast notifications stopped.

 

Of course, as you mentioned, the Thunderbolt toast notifications still happen (as expected) when you check for Lenovo updates manually.

My problem was resolved with one of the latest updates I installed from Vantage. Then the hardware for the fingerprint reader failed so it was sent back to Lenovo.

In Windows 10, using the Task Scheduler desktop app, check the TVT folder (Think Vantage Technologies) for two scheduled task; one which runs weekly and one which runs at logon of any user. Disable these tasks.
