ThinkPad X230 Win 10 "FW Status Recovery Error" Boot error

2020-01-31, 18:45 PM

Hello there,

 

I did software update with third-party app called "Driver Booster" which installed replaced various drivers over my laptop, after that my laptop is flashing "FW Status Recovery Error" at diferrent corner at every bootup. 

 

Here are some troubleshoot I have done

1. cleaned SSD and fresh installed Win 10 1909.

2. replaced CMOS battery.

3. Updated drivers from Lenovo Vantage after fresh installation.

 

I still have this issue, I dont know what is wrong with my PC nor do I understand what that error mean, but certainly it an error. Plz help to fix it. Thanks a lot.
