USB type C charging and Thunderbolt issues (after drive and firmware updates) in X280

2020-01-24, 7:44 AM

Hi all,


After reading a critical flaw in the USB-C firmware of Thinkpads, my X280 included, I followed the instructions from

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/sk/en/solutions/ht508988

 

and even tried replying (I could not reply, maybe the thread is locked...) in this related thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Updated-Critical-Intel-Thunderbolt-Software-and-Firmware-Updates/td-p/4519763

 

At the moment I am stuck with my X280 (with Windows 10) not charging via the USB-C port or the USB-C thunderbolt port... 


I also keep refreshing Windows Updates and Lenovo Vantage, both not giving me anything about firmware and Thunderbolt updates...

 

For now I will try the firmware  n20uj21w.exe from the Lenovo download site here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x280-type-20kf-20ke/20ke/20ke003eph/pf0x4k4l/downloads/DS502324 

*Why does Windows 10 nor Lenovo vantage tell me about this firmware update? My BIOS firmware version remains at 1,35 even after refreshing Windows Updates and Vantage...

 
Please help...

Quick update: Now my BIOS version is N20ET51W (1,36) from N20ET50W (1,35) and still no charging via my USB-C ports...

When plugged in, Windows says I am plugged in but no charging occurs...
