XPS13 L322X developer edition (Ubuntu) SSD LMT256M3M firmware update question

Q: XPS13 L322X developer edition (Ubuntu) SSD LMT256M3M firmware update question

Hi
I found there is an update for my SSD*. As my XPS13 sometimes hangs on thaw, I wander if this update could help. I read it fixes issues about power management, but nowhere I read it targets ubuntu.
Also, can I use the iso file to burn a usb stick instead of a CD?
Thank you

Hi,
My XPS13 L322x cypress touchpad has completely failed.
I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling both the software and driver to no avail.
I have replaced the entire touchpad but this did not fix the issue.
Any further suggestions?
Thanks,

I'm encountering a serious issue on an XPS13 (L322X) laptop that seems related to firmware and UEFI.
Context of the problem
Laptop model: L322XBIOS version: A07Description of the problem
Most of the times, the laptop doesn't start properly on cold boot. Pressing the power button causes the keyboard backlight to light up but the screen is pitch black and the DELL logo with the boot options doesn't show up. Toggling the caps lock key has no effect on its LED. A short press on the power button causes the laptop to shutdown immediately, and that is all I can do in such situation.
Sometimes, the laptop will function properly: the DELL logo appears, allowing me to enter into setup and boot as expected: I can start Windows 8 or any other installed OS and everything works fine. When an OS runs, I can put the laptop into sleep mode and it will wake back up normally. But if I choose another option (shutdown or restart), the laptop shuts down correctly but the problem will happen when it starts again.
The observed behavior happens 9 times out of 10 after each cold start, randomly. After days of test, it doesn't seem to be affected by:- any BIOS setting, including UEFI mode/Legacy mode, Secure Boot, Rapid Start, or any other offered option; "Reset to defaults" has no effect,- battery state and / or whether AC is plugged or not,- whether external USB devices are plugged or not,- internal temperature.
Another abnormal behavior is that when properly booted in... Read more

A:firmware issues on L322X

I did some more tests and succeeded in flashing the firmware to A09 version:
1) I ran the firmware tool on another computer, waiting for it to extract its data into temporary folder. When the extraction dialog box closed, I went to %TEMP%\ExtactTemp\ and copied the files to a FAT16 USB pendrive (sometimes the file default.rsp had an additional ".bak" extension; this needed to be renamed to "default.rsp").2) I inserted the pendrive into a USB port of the L322X while powered off, disconnected the power cable, pressed the END key, reconnected the power cable and released the END key after 1 second. This caused the laptop to start automatically and directly boot the DOS flash utility on the pendrive.3) The flash utility started reading the current BIOS and as expected, it failed and caused a restart. I kept repeating step 2 (tens of times) and the flash utility eventually succeeded in reading the ROM and completed the flash operation successfully.
When the computer restarted, the DELL logo appeared immediately. I entered setup options and verified that the firmware version was A09. Since then, the computer has always started properly after a cold boot or a restart and the problem has not occurred, so it seems flashing the firmware to the A09 version solved it.
I think it's safe to conclude for now that the firmware is the cause of the problem and not the hardware. Since the problem appeared after booting in UEFI mode on a linux kernel after month... Read more

When I go to http://192.168.15.1, which is the Linksys webpage for my Linksys RT41-BU wired router, it shows the firmware version as 1.01.0

A firmware update at the Linksys site has the filename RT41_BU_1[1].1.0.003_sym_code.bin

I'm not really sure if this is an update for the current version. Can someone decipher the file name and tell me?

Also, would updating the firmware be of any benefit?

I have a few questions about XPS 13, don't really know where else to ask them as distributors in my country haven't been able to answer them:

Is there any difference in hardware with XPS 13 and XPS 13 Developer edition?
If there is no difference and I remove Win10 from XPS 13 and install Ubuntu, where can I find the drivers that are already preloaded on XPS 13 Developer Edition?
XPS 13 Developer Edition is listed as available in North America and Europe - I'm from Croatia, Europe and for a few months now I've been given negative replies from distributors on my availability inquires saying the model is not available and they don't know when it will be available. Is there a number I can call for Dell EU to get more information on this?

Hi Dell,
I was very excited to get my beautiful xps 13 9360 developer edition yesterday.  I immediately ran 'sudo apt update; sudo apt upgrade', installed and switched to the gnome desktop, and started a big rsync job to get my files over from my old computer.  I haven't done any other setup other than for applications.
Sadly, the laptop has been very glitchy in less than a day of usage.  So far:
* the lack of palm detection for the touchpad constantly causes the cursor to jump, but there seems to be no fix for this from an hour of googling;
* the system crashed once (music started stuttering and everything was unresponsive);
* my headphones don't work when I plug them in (music continues to play through the internal speakers) -- some googling points to some fiddling that may fix this problem;
* the wifi has died twice after suspend and had to be turned off / on;
* the trackpad pointer has become unresponsive twice, requiring a reboot to get it working again;
* after leaving the computer on over night to run the rsync, I found the wifi had died again in the morning, but I had to reboot the computer to get it working this time.
I have run the boot diagnostics, and they report that everything is working fine (still waiting for the memory test to finish).  
What's up with this?  I was a long time linux on the desktop guy, moved to macbooks for several years,  and was very excited to get back onto linux, but hopefully without the ... Read more

So my friend LordJohnx3 and I have created a halo clan, we have a few members and such, our own youtube channel, etc, and now we want to create a server for our clan. To have moderation/admin powers, you have to have Halo Custom Edition Devmode. I enabled devmode, but you can only create a LAN game with it on. So I downloaded this devmode tool, from hce.halomaps.org, AllDevHaloCE by bitterbanana, which is supposed to allow me to create an internet game without turning devmode off. The problem is, I can't turn the tool on when I'm in or outside of Halo.

Hi, i have an XPS 13 Developer Edition (so with Ubuntu 14.04), about 4 months old, probably a bit less, and suddenly i have this problem: as soon as the battery percentage reaches 83%, the status switches to "discharging", the led on the front turns off, and turns back on only as soon as a little percentage of battery gets consumed; this on-off cycle goes on and on, as the laptop thinks he is fully charged at 83%. I'm sure it's not just a wrong shown percentage problem, like it shows 83% but it's actually 100%, since the battery does last just exactly as it did with 80%, and not like 100%. 
What can i do to solve this problem?

Okay guys, this is really embarrassing and I already know I'm an absolute idiot so please, just bear with me.
I just bought the XPS 13 Developer Edition, simply because I already have an extra Windows 8 license key and didn't want to pay extra for Windows 10. Now I know that Windows 10 wouldn't accept my Windows 8 key but I also read that Windows 8.1 doesn't accept Windows 8 keys either. I really didn't want to have to install Windows 8, followed by 8.1 and then Windows 10 so I did a search and apparently, if I used a KMS Client Setup Key during the 8.1 install, I will be able to change the key back to my Windows 8 key after the install. So I gave that a try but unfortunately, after the install, it won't accept my Windows 8 key. Finally, I decided to just screw it and install Windows 8 and start from scratch. I probably should have read up on how to downgrade from 8.1 to 8 but I thought I'd get an option to format the disk and start from the complete beginning. Turns out, it just went ahead and started installing Windows 8 (on top of 8.1 I presume). After that, it wouldn't allow me to boot anymore, each time saying that Windows detected an error or something.
This was when I decided to boot into the bios and get it to boot from my Windows 8 USB drive to see if I can start over from there. For some reason, it wouldn't detect my USB and after some searching around, I realised that it's because UEFI doesn't support USB bootup (unl... Read more

I have a Packard Bell desktop that still runs XP. Yeah, I know, bear with me...

I would like to dual boot it with Ubuntu Server but I read two interesting posts which I will follow:

1. First someone (edwar) suggested to use a Virtual Machine. Both Virtualbox and VMware Player are free. That way you can run both Windows and any flavor of Linux you want along with older versions of Windows at the same time. No need to restart to go to the other OS. Best thing since sliced bread.

IMHO this is not an option for me since XP is already installed. I don't think I can install a VM and then move my XP into the VM. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

2. Then someone suggested to install the 2nd OS on another HDD. I like that a idea. I just couldn't find that post anymore. AFAICR he said:
- install 2nd HDD
- unplug 1st HDD
- reboot with Ubuntu installation CD
- install Ubuntu on 2nd HDD
- plug in 1st HDD
- go into BIOS and set it so that it asks which HDD to boot from

Is the above more or less correct? If so I'll try to do just that one of these days.

A:Dual boot XP and Ubuntu Server edition

Yes it's always best to boot from BIOS to avoid issues.

Set preferred OS HD first to boot in BIOS setup,

then when needed trigger other OS HD using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

Let us know how this works. There are other options if it isn't desirable, like installing EasybCD to Windows to add the other OS: Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7

I was just fairly curious as to find out if Ubuntu 10.10 (32bit) can be loaded onto a "virtual machine"? For recently I have entered the world of virtual machines and drives. I downloaded Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and have been using that to install several versions of older Windows Operating Systems, without one single problem.

Now I would like to start dabbling in the world of Linux and Ubuntu and the like. So can I just go ahead and set up a virtual machine as I would do to install an older Windows O.S.? Just making sure the hard drive size is set to a size that Ubuntu likes. For I've seen some information around here that Ubuntu can be loaded onto a CD and ran from there. Also that Ubuntu can be loaded onto a USB flash drive and run from there as well. So why not loading Ubuntu onto a virtual drive on a virtual machine, I would suspect that this can be done, but just want to play it safe first by asking the question.

Thank you to anyone who might offer up an answer or advise here!
 

A:Ubuntu Desktop Edition 10.10 & virtual machines

I run it virtually all the time without issues at all, but I use Virtualbox for my guest OS requirements.

I'm not sure if MS Virtual PC 2007 will cover Linux installs, but assuming it does it should be fine. Just download the latest ISO and mount it within the virtual console to use the disk.

The Ubuntu setup guide in my signature was produced using Virtualbox to run Ubuntu as a guest OS.

Im not sure how to update my firmware. Im having trouble burning CD-Rs with nero 7.0 because it keeps coming up with this calibration error. I posted that thread in this same forum ( http://forums.techguy.org/multimedia/453562-nero-issues-data-disks.html)
but it just leads to this new question about updating my firmware because it might be a possibility. Im also running SP1.

I went to this page called "the firmware page" link- (http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php) and searched for my Disk Drive but had no luck in finding it. Even if I were to find it, how would I go about updating it, and how can I tell if its up to date?

I have Aspire E 14. Last night, I saw I have 1 critical update for firmware v1.17. When I clicked the update button it just says "updating" It just goes on and is not stopping. I closed the portal and a window appears saying reflashing. I saw it did reflash up to 100%, but why won't the critical update notification disappear on Acer Care Center portal? 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? Did my Aspire really did reflash? It seemed nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

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.

Laptop is a Dell Vostro 1000 with XP Home SP3. Just installed a Crucial SSD. Works great. Tried to install a firmware update; not so great. Following the instructions from the Crucial site, I downloaded the update (it's an ISO file) and burned it to a CD. In the BIOS, changed boot order to CD drive first. Restarted the laptop. No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.

CD-image ISO files have to be written to CD in a special way, if you just copied the ISO file to a CD like a normal file, that won't work. There's a free app for creating a CD from an ISO file, it's called IMGBurn: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

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?

After an hour online with Intel tech support, it was determined that a DH55HC motherboard was faulty and has to be RMA'd. Graphics with a i5-650 processor would not work, though the board worked fine with an X-16 card. As I used an OEM version of Win. 7-64, would it be possible for Intel to install firmware on the replacement board that would allow the operating system to see the new board as it would have the board that was replaced? The only component changed will be the motherboard, all drives including boot drive will remain unchanged.

I have Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Firewall Router hooked to my desktop using windows 98 and my laptop using windows XP. It's a wired router. I was told I didn't need a seperate firewall because this one came with one, but when I try to update the Firmware, this is the info it shows:
BEFSX41 - Instant Broadband™EtherFast®Cable/DSL Firewall Router with 4-Port Switch/VPN EndPoint
Firmware Date : 11/27/2002
Firmware File Size : 470KB
Firmware Version : 1.44

Click here to download the Release Notes.
Now does this mean this Firmware hasn't released an update since 2002? And if so how can I protect my computer from hackers if it's that outdated? When I do download the so called update, it asks which OS I'm using and being the desktop is the main one, I checked windows 98, so is my laptop protected too even though that is windows XP? Also when I do download the upgrade, it tells me I already have that file and do I want to overwrite it. That kind of tells me there is no update.

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

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.

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

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.

Hello,
I am trying to update the firmware of my iriver T30. I am using the tool provided by iriver. I am able to delete the firmware from my T30 but I cannot install the new firmware on the T30. It just hangs, and I have to close the program after many hours, and kill the process on my PC and try again with no luck.
Can someone help me?
Thanks

I have an E420 Thinkpad; NO problems ever with the laptop...a great machine.  I ran some updates and the Lenovo update wanted to update the battery firmware; there have never been any problems with my battery (I have an extended battery), but wanted to update as recommended. - When I ran the update, I got a "the tool was unable to update the battery firmware due to an internal error"...and then it automatically rebooted. - Once it rebooted, I now get a DOS warning (on initial boot) "this system does not support batteries that are not genuine Lenovo....." and I have to hit escape to continue.- When it boots up, I get a battery icon that shows either "plugged in and charging" with a RED X imbedded in the icon.- The laptop does not recognize the battery.  Even though it was in good condition and had a 95% charge when I first ran the firmware update....the laptop will not operate without hte power plug attached.- When I go to the power manager and the battery tab, I get a "battery was completely discharged and needs to be recharged verbiage- I have tried to re-run the firmware update from the update tool, but to no success. - I have tried to run the firmware update by downloading the install .exe file and running from my desktop....to no success.- I have tried to do a system restore, but it did not work.- I have screen shots of the screens mentioned as needed. Help!  I now have a small desktop that has a closeable lid.  It will not run if t...

I took a firmware update downloaded from Windows Update. The machine shutdown and began flashing the bios. It then restarted and now does not boot at all. It does not even get to the BIOS. It simply restarts and goes to a black screen with no messages or failures. Is there  a way to flash the BIOS and/or Firmware from a USB key or DVD? Regards,J.M. Wiley

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.

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.

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!
