Last night I went ahead and took the plunge ... Updated the Firmware on my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB (2.1.3 - Android 2.2.1).

My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.

This morning I found out that I can't get online!

None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).

Bible.is no longer works.

All three of my browsers no longer work.

Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).

Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.

Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....

We've recently installed a Level One FBR-1461 modem/router on a network with a fixed IP address. We need remote administration but that's not available with the early firmware version installed. A firmware update (via zip/afw file) was sent by Level One tech support in Germany, but not accepted by the router.

File is:

LevelOne-FBR-1461A-V1.35-RC24-180-80.3_sso_levelone.afw (about 3.5Mb)

I've tried shortening the file name to (perhaps) a more acceptable length, but the router will not accept the upgrade.

Has anyone else had problems or found a solution?

This is not the first dirty update procedure i have experienced with windows 10

Yesterday MS forced down the January Cumulative Upgrade (and build number advance) down the users
throats.

Heres what happened to me.. (and i have rarely ever seen something like this before )

While i was installing a game using UPLAY (ubisoft) and watching video in Chrome my brandnew Windows 10 Laptop
(installation age 3 days) become more and more responsive with sound starting to stutter, severe issues that intensified
over a short period of time and i was like "WTF?!?" What happened was that during my tasks windows had decided to
update my rig (of course it doesnt warn you or give you the option to reschedule ) and this update was so severely
dirty implemented that my 16 gb of memory was completely consumed and not released .
I had to reboot of course and after that everything returned to business as usual.
Well, i thought, rare coincidence probably because i was installing a game, watching HD Video at the same time etc and
installing an update.

Boy was i wrong ..today i turned on my older Laptop for the first time in days and it resumed from sleep and just a couple of seconds later after the background update had run..(indicated by the messages i received after booting it after the error ).

Code:
STOP 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED ? FWPKCLNT.SYS

A:January Update caused identical problems on 2 different Laptops

Hi, I can appreciate your frustration- MS does not necessarily configure things as we might want, expect or need.
Just a simple one first: do you have this in Settings, Update?

Secondly, do you use disk imaging, and if so can you restore an image created before the above?
(Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper - free- + their boot disk and external backup medium- essential tools to preserve your system and your sanity).

Agreed, problems with the Nov TH2 upgrade (10586) with system restore turned off, associations reset to default... but for me relatively minor, except there was no warning of how long it would take.

HelloIn a couple of weeks I want to install fedora 24 on my Lenovo y50-70, but I don't want to have problems again with secureboot. The problem I had when I installed fedora 23 (or any other Linux) is that I can't put off secureboot, every time I disable secureboot in BIOS it automatically sets it back to enable (I save of course) so I installed fedora 23 with secureboot, the problems were slow start-ups and a lot of problems with virtualization (the problem is secureboot, I have enabled virtualization in BIOS). I know now how to fix virtualization with secureboot, so that's not my question.My question is could I flash the firmware to something different where secureboot is off or not there? Or anyone has a solution how I can put off secureboot completely?A second question is do I lose performance when I don't install my OS in UEFI? So in BIOS mode. I have read some articles some say not, some say it depends.Thank you for reading my postGreetingsGraham

Hello I've got a Lenovo y50 laptop that comes with a great app called Lenovo Energy Manager, this app comes with a great feature called conservation mode which makes it keep the battery at only 60%. Now after upgrading to Windows 10 I still have the app installed, but conservation mode no longer works. Does anyone with experience about Lenovo laptops with this feature know anything I can do to fix it?

I just want to post a warning here from my own experience about Lenovo laptops, I originally got one for Christmas in 2012 and about 4 months after getting it, I had to take it to Geek Squad at Best Buy so they could fix the Hard Drive and Motherboard, later on in the year I had an issue with Lenovo software on my computer and then had to go about spending $60 to order Recovery Disks to fix that issue and then about 6-7 months later I was starting to have problems with the charger wanting to go out and not work and that cost me $60 to buy a universal charger for it and shortly after buying a new charger I was starting to have issues with the graphics card wanting to crash every hour or so and afterwards I finally just said to hell with it and ordered a new laptop and gave this one to a friend and earlier this week he came to me and asked me to help him fix it for him because he lost everything on it and I told him I would just put a fresh install of Windows on it and as I started to install Windows 7 it just started shutting off on its own and then told him to just buy a new laptop because that was just something that couldn't be fixed, so I figured I would just give everyone that warning about Lenovo computers, they don't last long and they always end up with problems

Can a Firmware Update and/or drivers on printers be reversed?I am new to BleepingComputer, so I do not know which Forum to post this to, as this issue involves multiple forums: Hardware (HP Printers), Software (Firmware & Drivers), Operating Systems running Windows 2000 and Windows XP.At my workplace, we have many HP Printers on the network. HP sent me a link promoting HP Easy Printer Care. I figured I would try it (big mistake) because I take care of all of the printers in our building. So this Easy Printer Care tells me that there is updated Firmware for my printers. So I get the firmware and install it. Of course, HP didn?t really explain how to install it. I had to look it up to actually do the install. After installing it, HP tells me that the Firmware Updates still need to be updated!?!Now the end users are having problems when they print. Multiple users are having the same and or different problems. The problem that has the most reports to me are: When someone is printing a document and they want to change it from portrait to landscape, they click on properties and receive an error message that reads:Function address 0x2e2a5aa caused a protection fault. (exception code 0xc0000005) Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed. Click OK.Then another windows pops up saying: Operation could not be completed.

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Lenovo Group Ltd, the world's largest PC maker, had pre-installed a virus-like software on laptops that makes the devices more vulnerable to hacking, cybersecurity experts said on Thursday.
Users reported as early as last June that a program called Superfish pre-installed by Lenovo on consumer laptops was 'adware', or software that automatically displays adverts.
Robert Graham, CEO of U.S.-based security research firm Errata Security, said Superfish was malicious software that hijacks and throws open encrypted connections, paving the way for hackers to also commandeer these connections and eavesdrop, in what is known as a man-in-the-middle attack.

I also checked update history and the firmware is not yet included. I tried it again the next morning, clicked the update button, but still, it just says updating and can go on until you close the portal.  Any solution?

I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.

It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off. They had me try the download with no firewall on and using just the modem no router. I've used Olympus Viewer, Olympus Master and Olympus Studio Trial version and they all download about the same amount before they shut down.

I'm open to suggestions at this point.

Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?

I can provide a screenshot if needed.

O.K. when originally wanting to do an Upgrade to Windows 8 i used VM to check it out.When i decided after alot of research to do the upgrade i used Windows 8 upgrade assistant.The message i receved on compatibilty was only one problem.Your PC Firmware doesn't support secure boot so you won't be able to use it in Windows 8.Secure boot requires firmware that supports UEFI v2.3.1 Errata B and has the Microsoft Windows Certification Authority in the UEFI signature database.Sure anyone who has UEFI like me received this message using this upgrade assistant.Through many hour and days of research on internet and other forums nobody seems to know how i can update my firmware,neither ASUS could advise me or Microsoft.To me i figured it should be a BIOS update,but no new ones are available for my system.So since i had no answers i decided just to do an install of Windows 8 Pro 64 bit (clean install) works well,faster then Windows 7.So far i like it.Only clue i have at this point was a site i found.Knowing my BIOS is a American Megatrend http://www.ami.com/Products/BIOSandEFIFirmware/AptioV/  Not sure if this is an answer to be able to do a UEFI install of Windows 8 Pro again to get full use of secure boot,GPT Partitions,but this is closest clue i got.BIOS stuff and flashing it can always be risky,rendering the motherboard inoperable,causing major issues,that i do not want to do.If anyone knows anything on this and can help with it would be very much appreciated i am stumped on thi...

Well obviously that’s not what it had in mind because my disk drive opened, I shut the disk drive and it started saying writing data to disk. HOW could it do that with no disk. I couldn’t close it. It then said installation succesfull. What the heck. I restarted my computer to see if I had screwed up my system and it seams to be running fine. Have I screwed up my hard drive? Did the dang update install? Can I delete these firmware updte files lying around on my desktop? Please help me????



It is ok.

I dont know what happened, but You HAVE to burn the bootable disk, and then boot into it after a restart in order to update the firmware.

Hi,

You can update the firmware before or after, I would suggest it would be better doing it before

This version improves write performance, which is version 1.0,

Hi, I have an issue with an E560 that is hooked up through a OneLink Pro to two external monitors (via Displayport and DVI). Both monitors randomly go black for 10-15 seconds and then come back (not at the same time). https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/documents/ht101596 indicates that the firmware needs to be updated; however, after downloading the .exe for the latest firmware, I can't get the file to run! After I click on it, nothing happens. There is nothing in the task manager. I've tried running as Administrator and still nothing. Has anyone had any issues with the update tool or have any suggestions? Thanks, Andrew

I have a Toshiba Notebook with following internal DVD-RW drive: "TS L632D T004 Toshiba".

The problem is, this drive doesen't burn DVD+r DL without failures.
I made quite much attempts with 10 DL DVDs und five different burning suites, without success.
So I guess to fix this failure with a firmware update.

Can somebody tell me where I can get this update?

Why should this issue related to the firmware?

In my opinion you should try removing the upper and lower filters in registry. Just follow this article:

A:Firmware update gone wrong

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.

I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.

Finally, you can approach your manufacturer of your PC or bios to purchase a replacement.

Hi, I have a problem with OneLink+, where DP is not working. I believe a firmware update should fix this. The update.log which is returned from tp_onelinkplus_dock_fw.exe is: Version: 0.00.000Update result: 255Error description: Can't connect to Synaptics VMMxxxx DP hub IC The paradox is that I am trying to update the firmware to fix the DP and firmware won't update unless you have a DP already connected.  In my quest to fix this, I have downloaded many files some of those where for an incorrect model, pressumably the other OneLink. I am now wondering if I have overwritten the firmware of OneLink+ with that of OneLink. Is that possbile?  Is there any other way to fix this?

Now, when I go to the netgear website and look up my router here: http://downloadcenter.netgear.com/ it says the latest version is 1.1.2.54.

i also tried to update the driver through device manager but there is no .inf file that i can find on the net so im pretty sure thats a no go.

if anyone knows a way around this problem or if there is another way to update my driver i would be very greatful if you could help.

A:DVD R/RW Drive Firmware update help

First of all a firmaware update is not a "driver". all optical drives use the windows native drivers and only MS updates that. I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter

Hi All: Just purchased a LG GSA-4167B using a USB 2.0 connection via an USB 2.0 External Enclosure. The firmware version that came with the drive is version DL10. There are later firmware versions available, DL11, DL12 and DL13. I would like to update to the latest version, DL13. Can I do it by downloading the DL13 zip file and just unzipping it or will I have a problem because it is using a USB external connection. There are no instructions on the LG download site for a USB connected firmware update. Any insight would be most appreciated.

You perform the firmware update from within the router's web user interface. Log into the router and there should be a option under one of the menus to upload new firmware to the unit.

Make sure that all other ATAPI devices are disconnected, if possible. If the drive is no longer under warranty, try the PS0B stock flash from CodeGuys. Using this patched version may invalidate any warranty.

But, what is the reason for the upgrade? They just as often as not lead to problems.

Hi!

It took me almost one hour to find this firmware update for my ADSL modem so that's why I uploaded it to Skydrive and make it hopefully a little bit easier for you.

My modem kicked me of the web a few times every day and then it also had a "broken internet connection" so that there was a little yellow notification triangle on the network adapters icon even if the "internet providers" signal was ok it couldn't connect...

Any how, I updated the firmware and I have been running it for a few days now and no connection problems.

Here is the link and there is also a manual included (and in the comments you can see a really short description on how to update the firmware).

Hey,

I just had a quick question I have a LG CH08LS10 Blu ray drive and I have been having glitches with some Blu Rays namely Terminator Salvation and The Dark Knight they run choppy and stutter. All of my other Blu Rays run fine.

Anyway the software that came with the Blu Ray Drive came with the LG Tool Kit. When I first got the drive I used it to auto look for firmware updates. It found one update to make the drive compatible with Windows 7. It says that the update was successful but I'm unsure whether that's the case or not as I can't find out where to find out which firmware I have right now.

So I have tried everything to fix the stuttering issue with the two Blu Rays. I've updated Java, upgraded the Blu Ray playing software, updated graphics drivers, switched off tons of start up programs and still Terminator Salvation and The Dark Knight stutter. It doesn't make sense because TS spikes at 100% percent CPU usage all the time and 2012 is 50% percent.

So should I just go to the LG website and manually download the firmware update? Or will that damage my drive?

A:How do you know if a firmware update actually installed properly?

Nero Info Tool should tell you the drive's firmware: http://www.nero.com/enu/support-nero8-tools-utilities.html
You can also run that same firmware update utility and I think it tells you if the firmware versions and if there's a newer version.

You can try the WinDVD trial: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/ca/en/Product/1189528458632#versionTabview=tab1&tabview=tab4

You have a weak CPU and that may be the problem.

Barracuda (1TB/disk platform) Firmware Update

Because i've been having problems waking from sleep mode I wanted to update the firmware on it from my version now CC9B to its current version of CC9D. I downloaded its windows update utility and ran it. Everything seemed ok, it shut down windows, restarted, ran the updater, then it said "FAILED" in big red letters then asked me to go back to Windows. I did, everything was ok nothing got messed up.

Why did it fail to update the firmware? Was it because I didn't have CC9C and it didn't want to skip from CC9B to CC9D? Do I need to update to CC9C first? What should I do?

The update utility says that it cant be run on "RAID Systems". My system is capable of RAID but I dont have a raid setup i use ACHI. Do I need to go into my BIOS and disable something that has to do with RAID? As far as I know I have nothing enabled that has to do with RAID. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  Are you sure you got a BIOS Update from Windows Update?  If you did, that is a scary thought.  Windows 10 is good for giving you OS and driver updates whether you want them or not. Giving a BIOS Update is kind of over stepping their bounds IMHO.
 
Have you tried this.....
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that didn't correct the problem, can you access the BIOS Setup by repeatedly tapping the F1 key when you first power up the computer.  If you can access the BIOS Setup then your problem is most likely an operating system problem with a driver update Microsoft gave you.

The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

I have a 4-year-old D-Link DIR 601 (cheap) router. It used to put out a little better than 42% (~38Mbps) of the speed I get hard-wired (92Mbps). Last week, that was cut exactly in half (19Mbps) after I made a few changes to the configuration which should have had nothing to do with the speed it delivers.

Questions:
Is there anything I can check in the router's config that might account for the drop in speed?
The firmware is 1.01 and I understand 1.04 is available, but the site asks if I have model A or B. I can find nothing on the labels about A or B. Where would I find that?
I tried downloading the 1.04 update for version A. It's a zipped .bin file which is not executable. How does one apply the update to the router?
The router has a reset button that resets it to factory settings. Could that solve the speed problem, or is it not worth trying?

this drive failed the HP builtin [BIOS] HD tests, short and long, and failed the HGST diags tests, short and long [though the SMART status was all rosey ] Specifically the tests point to read-access failures which produce a string of Windows 7 system 'critical' events since the OS timing is scrambled by fetches that return no response.

nagging in the back of my brain is an ugly scenario: what if the issue is with the Mboard component? what would clue me in that the drive interface is at issue ? disc is a lot more likely I agree but it just doesn't feel like an ordinary disk fail

The firmwares listed on the plextor site only listed for:

* PX-712A/SA/UF

* PX-708A2/UF2

* PX-708A/UF

* PX-504A/UF

http://www.plextor.be/technicalservices/downloads/firmw_dvdrec.asp?choice=DVD-Recorders

As far as i am aware my drive is just a Plextor PX-708A drive.
What are the 708A/UF 708A/UF2 drives??? How do i know if my drive is one of these?

Matt.
 

A:Need to update firmware? Plextor PX-708A2/UF2??

Looking at this site:

http://www.plextor.be/products/dvd_recorders/px-708a.asp?choice=PX-708A

You'll find that the "A" model is the IDE internal drive, and the UF & UF2 models are external USB/Firewire drives.

However, following the link from PX-708A to firmware upgrades did not show a download for the "A" model, only for the others.

This is a follow up in a way. I had asked about the N-routers and how to get good reception in a large house. Based on the responses and reviews of this router Linksys WRT54GL I chose this one router to do the trick with the option of installing another one upstairs to increase coverage if needed. The price of 2 of these was cheaper than one N router or a router and repeater.

The Lisksys software is pretty lame. I was able to get my computer hooked up fairly easily but my roommate could not get online, which is more important as I am on the road all the time and he is stuck at home. I reset the router before I left so hopefully he can get himself hooked up before I get home in 2 days.

The coverage seems great. I get very good or excellent in all corners of the house. I see things about installing a second party firmware to improve it further. Any suggestions about which firmware, and details about how to update and use this firmware?

Thanks
 

A:Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.

Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.

First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

For some reason the firmware for thunderbolt won't update on my p70. I've tried installing from a command prompt and using the installer. Either way it seems to work but the firmware version doesn't change. I have the hdmi cable connected to a monitor and have the thunderbolt software running. I've rebooted and tried again. I've booted into safe mode then rebooted and tried again. I've uninstalled the thunderbolt controller and tried again all to no avail. Ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

Good Morning All,

I've posted to this site a few times, with excellent results and fantastic support from the members, thanks so much for all your help.

Here's a new one:

My Crucial C300 has firmware 001....needless to say I've been having some issues, BSOD's, etc...

So, I download all the updates, 1 > 2, 2 > 6, 6 > 7....and follow the Update Guide to the letter...

All is good and fine until I have to set my machine to IDE in order to install the update.
BIOS SATA controller says "AHCI or RAID"....no other options.
Cannot update the firmware. NO drive detected. Tried RAID, just in case. Nope.

I have a Dell XPS 9100, and have an ASUS U3S6 as well, but connected the SSD to the motherboard as the guide said to do....tried all the ports 0-3....nope.

I've set aside the time and patience to update the firmware to 007...as well as reconfigure some things with my system, 'housekeeping', if you will...

How do I get my machine into IDE mode? (And then back into AHCI when the updates are finished) Did I miss something in BIOS?

Thanks again.

A:Trying to update firmware on Crucial C300...

Just a note of caution, I would recommend doing a full system image before updating the firmware especially since you are having issues.
I am not advocating updating the BIOS on the Dell, but have you checked Dell's website and the associated release notes for any/all Bios upgrades?

Hello, I had no problems with the touchpad in my first two months of owning this computer. Recently when I try to use the touchpad, the cursor bounces all over the place and I have no control over it. This is espescially annoying when I am at work and need this to work correctly when I am gathering data in an excel doc. I noticed there was a 1.17 firmware update for the synaptics driver in the care center, but when I click to install it will run for a second and then say "failed". Just updated BIOS and every other driver I could think of but it makes no difference.

A:Touchpad firmware update VN7-592G

Hi ! Have you trying Unistalling the driver for the Touchpad? Must of the times unistalling the drivers and restarting your unit will actually fix the issue. If you access the Device Manager (Press Windows key +X)> Select Device Manager > Mice and other pointer device, Right Click> Unistall> Restart. Some updated on Windows sometimes will disable the proper Drivers for your unit. Hope this could help you!

A:Z820 Bricked Bios after Firmware update

Hi: If you run the BIOS file again (on another PC), the intruction page opens and you can try this...I'd burn the DOS based flash files on a CD, since the DVD drive may be looking for a CD to recover from, but according to the instructions below, you can use a USB flash drive (formatted in the FTA 32 files system, not NTFS). Just put the files inside the folder on the CD, not the folder. Fail-safe BootBlock Recovery ModeHP Workstations include 64 KB of write-protected boot block ROM that provides a way to recover from a failed update of the system BIOS ROM, for instance in the event of a power loss.  Fail-safe BootBlock Recovery Mode will detect that the BIOS is unusable and boot the workstation in a recovery mode and search the root folder of any FAT/FAT32 file system on any USB media source (hard drive, flash drive, etc.) for a compatible binary image. The binary (.bin) file in the DOS Flash folder should be copied to the root of the desired storage device, and the system powered on. Once the binary image is located, the BIOS recovery process will be attempted. The automatic recovery will continue until the BIOS is successfully updated or restored.

Hello Everyone!So here's the situation. I updated my m6-1045dx to Windows 8 Fresh Install. Among those that I applied was sp58572.exe found here which I will refer to as "patch". However, for some reason, the updater quit and now, my touchpad DOES NOT WORK. I think it's a firmware issue in the sense that I've already reinstalled Windows 8 TWICE and yet it still does not work. I think what needs to be done is to update the driver correctly and then use the patch to correct the firmware. The problem is that I tried restarting, shutting down multiple times, reinstalling the driver (both the one provided by HP for my model and the one on the synaptics website) to no avail.Everytime, I try to run the patch, I only get the error message "A synaptics pointing device driver is required for reflasing. Please install a synaptics driver version 15.1.6.0 or newer".The problem is that it doesn't work EVEN if I install a newer device driver. Any help you can give will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Go to your Device Manager and under ?Mice and other pointing devices? you should see Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad. If it is listed there right click and select uninstall then restart your computer and try to install sp58572.exe again. If there is an yellow ! then right click and select Update Driver Software. If anything else is listed there let me know what it is. Thank you,

Hi

I am experiencing intermittant connectivity issues and am wondering, whether amongst other thing I should update firmware. ( Have downloaded the microsoft patch) For some reason my internet connection drops every 2/3 days

The version of firmware that I can see is running from the DLink control panel is R 2.01.b5nz. I have no idea if this is the latest. If I need to update, does anyone know how I should do it. I am rather reluctant to do this as I don't wont to "bomb" my computer.

Many thanks

Grandpa

When I run the "Update" app on "Lenovo Companion" it tells me I need this and then appears to go through the whole installation process followed by a reboot. But then when I run the "Update" app again it tells me I still need to install it, as if it never happened. I went to the Lenovo support page to try to install it from there but I have the same problem, in that after rebooting and running the "Update" feature it tells me I still need to install it. Any ideas? Thanks.

After installing the lastest firmware update via Linux usb tools to my SDD (Vertex 3 Max IOPS) problems with freezing seem to still persist.

The only difference is that, instead of having the rotating blue wheel (the thing that tells you something is loading) and windows explorer going white (meaning it's stopped responding) - the system simply totally freezes. Not even mouse movement works anymore when it happens. No error messages, no BSOD, nothing. It just totally stops.

What else could my problem be? I'm using a new user account since it seems to buy more time before a freeze happens by doing so (since it has less things to load I'll guess).

Here are my specs :

Computer type : Origin EON17-S (Clevo P170HMx) (Laptop)

Purchase Date : August 2011

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Overclocked Intel Core i7 Extreme 2920XM (Sandy Bridge) 4.1 - 4.8Ghz (though it reads as 2.5Ghz on most things...) [Intel? HM67 Express Chipset Family]

16GB Dual Channel Kingston Hyper-X DDR3 SDRAM @ 1600Mhz

Overclocked NVIDIA 580M GTX (Driver 301.42)

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSD (OCZ-VERTEX3 MI) (Updated firmware to v2.22)

Secondary 750GB HDD (ST950420AS)

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230

Edit : I'm currently looking through for updates to other hardware on my system.

A:Firmware update did not completely repair my computer.

The very first thing you should do is set everything back to stock speeds. You are lucky that the firmware flash went through successfully. Set everything to stock speeds and see how that runs.
