lt4211 Gobi 4G driver version

Question: lt4211 Gobi 4G driver version

Is there something wrong with the way the Gobi driver version is reported to the OS? I have a Revolve 810 G3 with the lt4211 Gobi 4G card. I've applied three different driver packages: v.1.1.0.77, v.1.1.0.84, and v.1.1.0.85. Each time it runs for a long time, and eventually ends successfully. But every single time, when I reboot and then check Windows Device Manager, the driver version reports back as v.1.0.1.24. It's very important that I get the driver updated to the latest version, but how can I be sure that it actually worked?!

Preferred Solution: lt4211 Gobi 4G driver version

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Brand new HP Z Book 17 [email protected] It has the embedded 4211 GOBI LTE broadband device installed. (Verified by removing the cover and looking at the label pasted on laptop. The SIM was working in another laptop with no issues. SIM/IMEI was provided to Verizon and verified configured properly in the network. HP connection manager shows  broadband wireless connects to the Verizon network on the first try but there is no data connectivity. Unable to connect to anything with a browser. This is done without the laptop connected to any network. The laptop works perfectly on WiFi LAN and Wired LAN connections though. The HP connection manager show NOTHING in the "Mobile Broadband" tab which seems to indicate the HP connection manager is not talking to the GOBI properly even though it connects to the Verizon network. The lastest 4211 driver on the website appears to have issues during installation as it states "unsuccesfully installed" several times. HP, what is the issue here ? Brand new laptop, working SIM card, Wireless Broadband connectivity is no functional !!!!!!!!

Answer:X120e Gobi 2000 v Gobi 3000

Hello,
 
I found a spec sheet for the Gobi 2000 here and the one for the Gobi 3000 here.  From looking between the two, it appears the newer 3000 model is ready for UMTS - AWS and EV-DO/CDMA ? 2100 MHz (standards which may not have been ratified when the 2000 was released), supports faster HSDPA speeds (14.4Mbps vs. 7.2Mbps) and is 2.5 grams lighter.

Answer:gobi 2000 driver for windows 8 - thinkpad t410s

Hi, doronei
 
I cannot find any Windows 8 drivers for your system on Lenovo's website. Drivers are sometimes compatible with different versions of operating systems than those listed, so I would try the drivers here and see if it helps. You will likely need the driver for activation of the card and the driver itself, so make sure you get both of them. If it does not help, then you will be able to uninstall it from Device Manager.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

I have a W510 with the Gobi WWAN chipset running x64 Win7 Enterprise.  Once I install the Gobi WWAN driver, the system has a BSOD within 10 seconds of the install wrapping up.  After a reboot, if I switch off the wireless, I am OK, but once I switch it back on, I will BSOD within a minute.  I am running the latest BIOS as of today.  I am running the latest Gobi drive from the Lenovo site (1.1.90/2.0.6.9).  Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:W510 Gobi WWAN Driver Causing BSOD

Exactly the same behaviour with an identical configuration here. Bluescreen whenever I activate WWAN Devices within 1-300 seconds. Tried bios update and W7 x64 blank-install. Without Simcard the OS remains stable (however tried 3 different sim cards with different carriers). Is there any firmware update for the Gobi chipset? Anyone found out something more specific?

Do you have a SIM card inserted in the machine? If not, this will be needed for WWAN access. Also, which version of Windows are you running, and what drivers did you download to get the card to work?

Hello,Few days ago I run Lenovo software update utility. There was an update available for the dolby audio driver and I applied it. Since then every time I reboot the computer the dolby audio application fails to start (it is in the start up). The message displayed is "The current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.14 and the software application expects driver version 7.2.7000.7. Please install a valid driver and software application combination." There is no available download for the application in the support section of Lenovo's website. This problem caused some applications to stop working (e.g. Spotify reports an error with the sound card and fails to play music).Please, advice. Thank you.

Hi,

As you all know, the "Driver" tab of every device inside Device Manager shows a device's name, driver provider and driver version (as shown in the image)

Is there a command line which could list out (in table format) the name, driver provider and driver version of every device (without grouping them within nodes if possible)?

I'm only interested in device, not driver.  I carefully chose the word "device" instead of "driver" because a device can be made up of several driver (files) which could be at different version amongst them.

I've tried devcon (command is devcon find *) but it doesn't match what I'm looking for -- it's showing a lot of things that I don't even know what they are.  And there's no driver provider or version.

I've also treid driverquery, but it lists driver files instead of
device, and doesn't show version number.

Is there other alternatives?
TIA

"display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 332.21 stopped responding and has recovered"

Hello and thanks in advance for your help.

Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
64 Bit OS
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40 GHz

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Dell has attempted to help me with this problem. Prior to having this error pop up on my screen the computer would just have a blank screen at start up after the dell logo then the windows logo appeared. They had me run the computer in safe mode with networking and they have uninstalled all drivers and reinstalled them, they ran CCleaner and fixed all registry errors/cleaned out temporary files, they installed and ran Windows Security Essentials and got rid of any malware. Finally, they decided to send me a new graphics card. They had a technician come install the new card and run a diagnostic test and update all drivers. Everything seemed to be fine but when I opened a game on the system that uses the more intense graphics, the screen went blank again. I have not played any games since but while browsing the internet at random times, I get the error message from the title of this post. The screen will go blank for a few seconds then reappear with that message. I have tried to do some research and have found that the error is probably something called TDR.

I've only used it once. Had an old Time PC that I'd wanted to get rid of. A friend at work said he'd have it if it was working. So used DM to 'export' the drivers and burned to disc. Reformatted the PC and installed XP (no recovery partition or discs), used DM to 'import' the drivers and after a few reboots it worked like a dream. So no hunting for any drivers.Anyway, thanks for the info!

Around a month ago I started to notice my computer using 70%+ cpu when I view my friends webcam and sometimes even watching videos online, it's never done this before. Later I noticed that I was useing gfx card driver version 6.14.10.9381 even though i updated them to the latest version a month or 2 earlier. So, I downloaded the latest version again, restarted my computer and it still said I was running the old version! I've tried different versions but it doesnt make any difference =/ Games seem to run alright it's only when I view my friends webcam and sometimes watch a movie online.

Are you looking at this on the manufactures website, and if so, normally there is a date posted next to the driver version for the release date specific to your system and hardware. Most times, you will find, once windows 8 is installed, that driver will be updated along with many others. If you intend to upgrade to windows 8.1 from that point after installing windows 8, you will probably see yet another driver upgrade as well.

Hi,I was just surfing the web using my updated Vista computer (XPSP2 -preinstalled to Vista which I got for FREE from HP) and came across Nvidia. I click on the beta driver button which lead me to another webpage. I found a button that finds the driver for my motherboard (automatic) and got the nforce driver v.15. I downloaded it using IE7 with protected mode ON. While downloading, I clicked on the driver installation hints and noticed that is says to remove the Nvidia Display Driver and other stuff. And so I did. I restarted my computer and got 3 rundll messages (forgot what they are called). I didn't worry about them because I thought that after I installed the nforce driver everything would be ok. WRONG! after installation, I cannot connect to the internet and the errors were still there, so I did a system restore. Next, I tried a second time, but this time I ignored uninstalling the Nvidia Display Driver and installed the nforce driver anyway. The first attempt once I have installed it, there was no error message but I cannot connect to the internet .The compatibitaiy wizard poped up telling me it was uncompatible and so I clicked "use reccomended settings" and I reinstalled the driver. This time, I have internet connection and no errors!!!. I went back to the Nvidia website and clicked "motherboard drivers" in http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-usand got the same driver update...Does that mean that is wasn't installed???...

Answer:Nforce Driver Version 15.00

I had a look at the link and why do you want to upgrade that driver for? Are you looking for a video driver? http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.aspDont forget Beta means in the testing stage. Always try to remember to make a system restore point b4 installing drivers, just in case. If you want to look up driver updates for your motherboard go to the manufactors web site and search from there, if you dont know the type of motherboard you have download a program like belarc http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html or take off the side cover of your PC and it will be written on the board along with the version number.

I just read that for P55/ICH10R (or older) I should get Intel RST v9.6 and for P67 (or newer) RST v10.1. What's the deal here? I always thought newer (much newer in fact) drivers were always the better (as long as the hardware in question was still supported) considering possible new functionalities and bug fixes.

Dear all, I've been trying to figure out whether I should update the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver for my X61 7675 CTO with Windows 7. The reason I cannot figure it out is whether I have the storage controller mentioned on the page below or not. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70477 Device Manager informs me that what I have is an "Intel(R) ICH8M 3 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 2828" and that the current driver version is 8.2.0.1011 (11/15/2006). This driver version is also on the page linked above, but the name of my storage controller doesn't seem to match. On the other hand - I cannot find the name of my storage controller anywhere on the lenovo.com support pages... Could someone please inform me if I should update the driver using the files accessible from the link above? Thank you.  Per Bylund 

Answer:Driver version identification help

So I tried installing the storage manager driver update on lenovo.com/support, but it obviously wasn't applicable. Is the driver I have really the latest one?

I have a T61 (model 6457-BS7) that worked fine until I used Lenovo's driver update. Since then the Windows Aero transparency effects are no longer used. Microsoft's diagnostics proclaim the graphics device does not support it, even though it worked fine until this morning. So basically, I want to go back to the previous driver, but I can't find it anywhere. I guess is was version 186.94, because that is what a collegue of mine has. Where can I get it. OS: Win7-64bit, card reported to be a Quadra NVS 140M. Bert Laverman

If you had updated your driver with System Update, you will find the previous driver version in C:\Program Files\Lenovo\System Update\Session. One of the subfolders there contains the old driver setup files.

Hello, and thanks in advance. So after a while of having this laptop, I started playing games on it. I know I'll never have it perfect for the game in mind but while tweaking things here and there, I did notice that my Intel graphics card seems to only be called Intel(R) HD Graphics, whereas if I Google drivers and such, it always has numbers or different text. Is this normal? Now when I click on Properties from the Adapter Type area of the Generic PnP Monitor and Intel(R) HD Graphics Properties, I find the last driver date being 8/4/2015. Are there really no updates since then? I can't seem to find any info on it and the Intel(R) Driver Update Utility gives me an option to download an update but it gives me some message for the driver not being validated for my computer. My current version is 10.18.15.4248. However, the Update Utility says my installed version is x.x.x.4539 and it wants to install x.x.x.4624 (15.40.34.4624, which now looking at it makes my driver feel horribly outdated), but gives me the message before about validation. Another thing is that another download is in the Utility's list. Intel HD Graphics Production Driver for Windows 10 64-bit (N-Series). I tried that too, even though it wasn't checked originally and I got the same message. Summarized: I feel like I don't have the best driver I'm meant to for my graphics card and the Utility seems more confused than I am.

I built a new pc a month ago and have been running Win7 RC1 on it for the time being. Obviously Win7 is coming out next week so I am getting ready to purchase the full version. I could buy the Retail version of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit for $199, or the System Builders version for $99 on newegg.

Can anybody go ahead and buy the System Builders version, or is that restricted to actual pc resellers? Would newegg ask me for a resellers license or something if I try to order it? I built the pc, don't need MS support for it, and will only ever use that copy of Win7 on that pc. I just hate spending twice as much money for the Retail version if legally I can buy and use the System Builders version for half the price. Or am I better off paying more money for the Retail version?

Also, if I can buy the System Builders version, I assume it will come with the install dvd as well as install key? Plus, with that, I can install that copy on just this pc as many times as I want without limitations, correct? Meaning, I usually format and reload windows on a pc twice a year so over 4-5 years I will be reinstalling that copy of windows on the same pc 8-10 approx over the years.
 

Answer:Buying full version of Windows7: Retail version or System Builders version?

Anyone can buy an OEM license. They're cheaper because they don't include Microsoft support. You are your support. OEM licenses are tied to the hardware on which they're installed. Technically you are prohibited from installing an OEM copy on a completely different system, though many people will do this and successfully activate their copy by saying their motherboard failed and had to be replaced, etc.

Hello everyone!

Has anyone ever heard of this? If so,is it legit? How good of a program is it?

I have the free version which just tells you what drivers are out of date, but acnnot download the updates. But when I use my Device Manager and check them that way, it shows that they are all up to date. So what gives? Can they both be right? or Which one is wrong?

Answer:Carambis Driver Updater version 1.1.0

Haven't heard of that one, but I use CNET's Tech Tracker to do the same job for programs and it does download if necessary. I use this for advice only and open each program mentioned and use Tools or Help to see if updates are actually available, and quite often they aren't.If Device manager says drivers are up to date, you will probably be OK. Driver updates through Windows can be away out of date but still work alright. If you are having a specific problem, go to the manufacturer's site and find specific updated drivers there. (I am thinking particularly of NVidia here which are updating almost daily and Device Manager updates are a long long way behind, but again, if you are not having a problem then who cares.)Once again, do not take any program like this as gospel, but take its advice as something you may wish to check out.Hope this helps a bit. Cheers

Since I keep getting driver failure errors with the old NVIDIA driver I decided to get he latest one.

This is the one released on 3/4/ 14 version 9.18.13.3523

This one does the same thing as the last one except more often! I get a black screen and a message saying "the drive failed but recovered" after that it seems to work fine.

Aside from reverting back to the old one, anyone have any thoughts as to how to cure it?

The card is a NVIDIA 8800GTS OS is 7 64

Thanks to all in advance!

Answer:Keep getting errors with NVIDIA driver new version

Hey Tinsby,

When you say that you installed latest drivers and then rolled back to old ones. Did you uninstall the old drivers first and then installed new ones?

If not, get DriverSweeper first. Uninstall the drivers and run the sweeper. This will remove the left overs of the old drivers. After this, install the drivers now. It will be like fresh install of the drivers.

Keep a track of the GPU temps with MSI Afterburner. Clean out any dust from the GPU. How many RAM sticks are you using? As per your system specs it is 6 Gigs. Is it 2*3? If yes, remove one Dimm and then run the PC (after installing the drivers off course ).

Keep us posted.

Good Day,

I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop w/XP. The NVIDA Driver Date is 1/10/2003. The Driver Version is 4.2.5.8.

I am told that this Driver should be updated/upgraded to this>Version: 61.77

My first question, is the person (RealOne Arcade) correct that I should install this Version 61.77 because the Version 4.2.5.8 is old?

My second question, please give me step by step instructions on how to do this as I attempted and came very close to a mess. My log on screen alone (never was able to get past that) was gray w/a thin 1/4 inch green line from left to right.

The NVIDIA Driver Installation Hints state:

"Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers.
Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly.
Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.

hi, last night i googled something and stumbled upon a thread saying you should always uninstall previous version of drivers when installing a newer version. i kept looking and there is pretty mixed opinion about it. so what actually happens to the previous version when you install a newer one over the top of it, would it not just remain in the driver store in case you need to roll back to that version.??

Answer:Uninstall previous version driver??

Hello Mitchell,

There are different opinions about this. Some drivers require to uninstalling the previous version before installing the new version and others don't do this.

Uninstalling the old drivers is required because they might run in conflict with the newer versions. I think, the best time to wipe the old drivers from computer is when everything run smooth on the new ones and you are sure you won't need to revert to the old ones.

Well, that's my two cents.

Hello everyone.

I am trying to help my friend. He is running a fresh installation of Windows 7 64bit on a brand new HP laptop. He bought a cheap USB to MIDI adapter for music production. The adapter did not come with a driver CD.

Yesterday I was searching the internet and I have tried many different solutions I came across, but alas, to no avail. The device icon in Device Manager was taunting us with that arrogant yellow exclamation mark along with the message "This device could not start". Thank you captain obvious.

I do have a direction though. There is a driver for Win7 64bit for a seemingly identical product from the same manufacturer. Everybody who installed this driver reported success (except, of course, for us).

I have tried to install this driver manually, but whatever I tried, my friend's PC always replies: "Windows has detected that the current installed driver is the newest version" - and will not install the original driver supplied by the manufacturer! I will note that the driver Windows installs by default labels the adapter as "USB Aduio Device" and that's it, of course.

What I'm looking for is a way to force Windows into installing that specific driver. I am sure there's a way to do that. I wouldn't mind if it had to be done through command line/registry - I have experience with that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thank you very much in advance.

I did install your version,but when i checked driver version again it was still 9.17.10.3062

Answer:Intel HD 3000 Driver Version?

These software drivers are generic versions and can be used for general purposes. However, computer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) may have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to the software or software packaging they provide. To avoid any potential installation incompatibilities on your OEM system, Intel recommends that you check with your OEM and use the software provided by your system manufacturer.


Same thing happens with AMD and Nvidia laptop GPU's as well, depending on who made the laptop as to whether the reference driver will install.

I was trying to update my EasyCamera driver on my Y530 running Vista 32-bit from the original factory image driver version to the latest version.  When I did so, the new version showing is different than the version listed on Lenovo's site when I downloaded it.  The driver version on the driver download page shows version 12.0.0.49974.  After I downloaded and installed it, it was showing in device manager as version 21.2.105.180.  Also, Vista popped up an error during install warning that it may not have installed properly and asked me if I wanted to reinstall it using the recommended settings, so I did that.  So, anyone know what's going on here?  And, what is the latest and greatest driver version for this webcam?

Answer:Driver version different than what was downloaded on Y530

These laptops may come with Bison and Logitech cameras inside, you ust tried installing wrong driver - this explains everything. Latest and greatest driver is that one that works fine. Why do you need camera driver upgrade? Is it not working?

I just downloaded ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M Series new version from cnet.download.com because mines old version.. and yes I downloaded the same driver, just newer version FYI..

I installed it twice but when I go device manager, the version is still old one.. It didn't ask me to restart and I haven't restarted PC yet. Currently I'm downloading lots of stuffs so I don't really want to restart.

This is actually my first time upgrading graphic driver so if anyone's familiar with this, please help.

Regards
 

Answer:Graphic driver updated, but version still same?..

Restart is usually required on older cards. Don't trust Cnet driver list, go to the developer site or even here.

Hi!

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on my computer yesterday.

However, I have a Realtek HD Sound Card.

Now, when W7 boots it detects and installs drivers for the sound card everytime. However, these drivers don't work. The sound icon in the notification bar shows a red cross, troubleshooting does nothing but say there is a problem, and no sound output is detected. So, I downloaded the official Realtek drivers for W7. These drivers do install, even after W7 says they're unsigned, and work perfectly,but, whenever the computer is started up again, W7 replaces those drivers with its own and the problem is back. So, if I install the driver each time I start up the computer, I can listen to audio until I shut it down again.

So, is it possible to "LOCK" the driver, so it isn't updated/replaced?

Thanks!

Hello, I am using a T530 with Windows 7 64-bit as operating system. The Driver Matrix on Lenovo's Homepage suggest to use the monitor driver with the version 4.38. However, Windows updates offers me an optional update for the monitor driver, which has the version 5.0.0.1. This is also working, but I am wondering about the different versions. Does anyone has an explanation? Michele

Answer:Monitor Driver for T530 - version

Hi Michele,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Since the 5.0.0.1 version is working fine, it?s well and ok. Probably, the latest compatible driver is not updated in the Lenovo support page. In certain cases, Lenovo customizes the drivers for proper functionality. Since the version you have installed is working fine, you can continue using the same.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hi,

The issue came from this post:
https://forums.techguy.org/threads/help-frequent-bsod.1179448/#post-9304102

I updated my AMD HD 7570 card using the auto detect utility provided by AMD. But when it is finished, my graphic driver is now changed to HD 7600. I suppose it is not compatible with the actual graphic card, as I can see the yellow warning on my device manager.

I have tried to look up the 7570 driver on the internet, but every time I install it, it keeps giving me the 7600 series. Please maybe someone from hardware division can help to resolve this issue. Thanks.

I have the equium a60, the drivers available on the official Toshiba download page are from 2004.

Seriously that cannot be the newest version available.

I think this may be the cause of a some display problems I am facing using this machine.

Answer:Equium A60: Is a new version of display driver available?

Hi

Many different notebook series are delivered with the same graphic card.
It?s possible that the newest graphic driver were placed in the different notebook category. I would recommend checking the different series for the same graphic card what is used in your Equium and possibly you will find the newer driver version.

I've been getting frequent "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" errors, and even the occasional BSOD, with by HP 2311x Monitor, so I decided to see if I needed a display driver update. On HP's site I downloaded the driver "Version 3.00 REV. A (9 Jan 2013)" (Filename: sp60378.exe) and ran it. I went through the installation process and everything seemed to go fine, and I rebooted. It didn't seem to help. So I looked at the driver properties for the monitor in Devices and Printers, and it says Driver Provider HP, Driver Date 8/16/2010, and Driver Version 1.0.0.0.

It is so frustrating!!! How is that possible?!?
The display driver (nvidia fx 5200 go) is so old - according to the device manager the driver date is 08/28/2003 and the version is 45.56 while the current driver in NVIDIA site is 84.21?!?

And there is no new driver in the Toshiba site and you can't install the one from nvidia, as they say that FX 5200 go is not supported and that we have to download a driver from the notebook manufacturer which is obviously impossible!

Did anybody find a solution to that problem?

Answer:Satellite Pro M30: Need new version of display driver

Hi Valentin,

I had a similar situation with my A30 which was preventing me from playing several games. As you will discover, it is virtually impossible to load the latest drivers from the maufacturers website (ATI or NVIDIA) so I resorted to the OMEGA drivers from http://www.omegadrivers.net/ to see if they would work.

The Omega drivers loaded perfectly and have been working without any problems for the last few months. I can even play the games that the original Toshiba drivers would not support.

I accept that there is a potential risk of the graphics chip over-heating but so far I have not suffered any ill-effects.

Windows 10 Version 1607 driver signing changes - gHacks Tech News

Microsoft announced recently that the upcoming version 1607 of Windows 10, known as the Anniversary Update, will only load kernel mode drivers that are digitally signed by Microsoft.

The change won't affect all systems however the company notes, as only new installations are affected in the beginning.

Starting with new installations of Windows 10, version 1607, the previously defined driver signing rules will be enforced by the Operating System, and Windows 10, version 1607 will not load any new kernel mode drivers which are not signed by the Dev Portal.

The list of exceptions to the new policy is long. Below is the most important information in regards to the new kernel mode drivers policy:
PCs upgraded to Windows 10 Build 1607 from a previous version of Windows (for instance Windows 10 version 1511) are not affected by the change.
PCs without Secure Boot functionality, or Secure Boot off, are not affected either.
All drivers signed with cross-signing certificates that were issued prior to July 29, 2015 will continue to work.
Boot drivers won't be blocked to prevent systems from failing to boot. They will be removed by the Program Compatibility Assistant however.
The change affects only Windows 10 Version 1607. All previous versions of Windows are not affected.
Microsoft notes that the change is done to make Windows more secure for end-users.

In my case an automatic Win-10-Driverupdate in February led to this problem: "Unidentified network" when tried to connect to the network. My network adapter, an usb to ethernet model, works fine. It use a ?Realtek USB FE Family Controller RTL8152".
After the last update it stuck with this error.

Now I search for a newer driver and found it. Windows doesn?t update this driver version until today.

I try many types of updates, e.g. automatic search, download manually, start setup within the network-properties, manual setup and many reboots, nothing works.

After I removed/deinstall the driver completely, reboot, run setup manually, connect the adapter, it reconnected to the network again. So I need some hours to solve the problem.

Answer:Network settings ok - driver version problem.

Do not worry about it. Real Tek does not make new drivers same as all other hardware manufacturers. Only time that thry do is if there is a major problem that can risk system security.

Answer:the 2.22 version x61 BIOS driver is not being detected following installation

welcome to the community.
 
if you have access to an external optical drive, you might want to try to use the bootable iso update method. there's a link to it about half way down the page you linked. personally, it's the only way i perform bios updates.
 
all that said, is there a specific issue you're trying to resolve with this update? again, personally, i'm pretty cautious with bios updates. definitely in the "if it's not broken..." camp on this.
 
if you need further info on the alternate update method, please post back.

Im having problems with the latest drivers from lenovo (8.17.12.9620), and more problems from the latest drivers from nvidia (9.18.10.2538) .   Im a unix/mac guy - is it even possible to revert drivers on windows? How does one go about it?  E.g. Can I just install old ones over the top of new ones?  Do I have to delete current ones first?  Is there a link between the drivers fro the HD graphics and the Quadro 2000M, or can the be updated separately? Ive spent the last hour trying to get to the driver page at lenovo.com - their website is so slow its dead at the moment.

Answer:[W520] is it possible to revert graphics driver version?

Uninstall the current NVIDIA package and then install the desired version.I would recommend against installing Intel drivers independently of the NVIDIA package (which comes with an Optimus variant thereof).
