Ideapad 300-15ISK - BIOS update on Ideapad

Question: Ideapad 300-15ISK - BIOS update on Ideapad

Hi,
I have Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK type/model 80Q700DRSC.
I want to update BIOS, so I downloaded D5CN47WW. In text file it is written that this is BIOS for my computer.
Everything seems fine but when I execute BIOS exe file it says that this is BIOS for Lenovo Paris 300 notebook!
What Paris now? I tried to google but only can find Paris in France.
I am user of Lenovo notebooks for many years (from IBM ThinkPads to this days) but when txt Readme file said
this is update for your computer, it was! This is confusing for me so I cancelled update.
Can anybody explain this mistery?
Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Ideapad 300-15ISK - BIOS update on Ideapad

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.)

My machine tried to do a system update and all went well except for the bios update. Idea BIOS Update-10[64]-V.1.47.  The update failed and I got a message that said This BIOS is only for the Lenovo Paris do you want to go ahead and install?  Any ideas?

Hey,I just tried to update the BIOS on my Ideapad as it was somewhat out-of-date and was having some issues, however, once I performed this update my BIOS seems to be gone...Whenever I boot now I'm presented with white text asking for media. I've attempted to use a USB with a Windows 10 installer on it, but nothing. Any help would be great, as this laptop is extremely important for my Uni work.

I can confirm the fps drops are not caused by any of the drivers, Intel or Nvidia's, I've reinstalled and completely renewed both drivers, no changes.Particular examples:-chrome starts fine, horrible slowing down after a few minutes-Civilization 6: went from 40~60 fps to 10~20 fps (unplayable)-World of Warcraft:Legion from 50~80fps to 20~40fps (spikes up to 60)-MS Visual Studio 2015 extremely long loading and start up times, frequent crashes, freezes and debug applications running horribly on this computer, that run fine on my older Lenovo laptop from 4 years ago!What I've tried:-Reinstalling the BIOS, did nothing-Reinstalling video drivers, did nothing (both NVidia and Intel)-Reinstalling most of the drivers including audio, chipset, ...

Hello, I just updated my 700-15ISK to the latest bios E5CN29WW and I thought it went OK. But everytime when the laptop is completely turned off and on it throws following error: 03C00252: Boot Manager recover from critical error.Some essential variables are absent or corrupted and Boot Manager has been restored from default configuration. Press F1 to continue or F2 to Enter Setup. It will boot up just fine to Windows 10 if I select F1 to continue, though. Thank you in advance.

Hello, I got this message a few days back when Lenovo Companion said it wanted to perform an important update after I accepted: This BIOS is only for Lenovo Paris 300-14/15/17ISK. Are you sureu you want to perform it?  I checked the bios I have which is D5CN28WWMy machine is the IdeaPad 300 300-15ISK. I do not know if it is the 'Lenovo Paris'. I cannot see that branding anywhere. I checked Lenovo's site and I see there is a critical BIOS update listed for the ideapad 300-14IBR & ideapad 300-15IBR. http://support.lenovo.com/ie/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/300-Series/300-15ibr?tabName=Downloads... There is not one listed for the 300-15ISK.  Does that mean I need to update the BIOS as I have 15ISk which is not listed as needing a critical update. The companion software seems to think I do need it.I do not know what to do.  Updating the BIOS is fairly important thing so I would lik some input from someone at Lenovo before I proceed. Thank-you.

Hello, After I installed this bios update E5CN60WW ( http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/ro/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/700-SERIES/700-15ISK/80RU/80RU00LQRI... ) the computer rebooted and refused to boot in UEFI mode( as it was before) and only boots on LEGACY mode. When I try to boot on UEFI mode it says that I should select a boot mode ( hdd, usb so on) and when I select the hdd nothing happens(windows is installed).  Windows was installed on verison 56WW of bios, with UEFI settings only, and after the update to 60WW i cannot boot UEFI anymore just on LEGACY. Why? How can I go back to UEFI booting ? Also before I updated the bios I have created a backup with universal bios backup toolkit and created a file LENOVO-E5CN56WW.rom (is it possible to backflash to this one?) Thank you,Bogdan

Answer:how to enter a bios in ideapad 300 15isk

Hi abdalla_eliwa, 
 
Welcome to the COmmunity FOrums. 
 
If FN + F2 on restart would not allow you to get in the BIOS screen, fully shut down the computer.
While it is off, use a paper clip to insert on the Novo pin hole as this would also automatically turn on the machine. Novo Menu would offer BIOS set up.
 
How can I start the BIOS setup utility? (page28)To start the BIOS setup utility:1 Shut down the computer.2 Press the Novo button (item8 page 7) and then select BIOS Setup.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

I have an Ideapad 500-15ISK (80NT00ADUK). In the BIOS I have defined an Administrator password ("XXX"), and a User password ("YYY"). I have also enabled the Power-On password, but NOT the Hard-Disk password. Starting with the computer off, when I press the Power button to switch it on, I receive TWO prompts to enter the BIOS password. I can enter XXX for both, or YYY for both, or XXX for one and YYY for the other. After the second password prompt, Windows 10 boots and displays the Windows logon panel. I think that I should be receiving only ONE password prompt for the BIOS password. The Ideapad 500 was shipped with BIOS version CFCN21WW. I noticed that there was a more recent version on the Lenovo website (CFCN23WW), so I downloaded that and installed it, but it does not fix this problem. As it happens, I also have an Ideapad 700-15ISK (80RU00CPUK). Although the hardware is different, the BIOS settings are almost identical, and I have set it up to be the same as the Ideapad 500. The Ideapad 700 displays ONLY ONE password prompt for the BIOS password. This is how I think that the Ideapad 500 should work.Other settings that I use:-- Secure boot disabled-- Legacy boot enabled-- Boot legacy first Is there a setting that I need to alter to eliminate the duplicated password prompt, or is this a bug in the BIOS software? Thank you. -- from CyberSimian in the UK

Hi. I have an Ideapad 700-15ISK which does not show the BIOS or Boot Menu after pressing Novo recovery button or Fn-F2. I'd like to install Ubuntu, but my Installation is not working. So there is no Windows anymore. My HDD encryted with unknown Pssword but I can not redo the installation because I can not boot from anywhere but Grub. From there I can only goto System Setup. It reboots but never enters BIOS. I tried with the recovery button. There was a Menu appearing with the items Normal Boot, Boot Menu, Recovery and something els. Whatever I do, I can not enter BIOS. So what can I do?

Answer:Ideapad 700-15ISK not show/enter BIOS

Hi SLohn03 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
How about if you just remove the harddrive (page 40) and then change the boot settings when you turn on the pc using the Novo button? That would give the BIOS set up menu .
 
Update us how it goes .

the BIOS that was shipped with my 510-15ISK (0XCN35WW) has a bug with hdd passwords... here's how to trigger it and how to work around it: 1) set a password from BIOS on the main harddrive2) power off, remove the DVD unit and install a SSD in that slot3) power back on, go in BIOS -> Security menu... discover that you can no longer set a password for HDDs or even remove/change existing passwords. apparently this situation where the laptop has 2 storage devices installed, one with password protection and one without causes a weird situation for the bios menu where it DISABLES all hdd-password related functions. my guess is that their logic goes something like this:- if hdd password is already set then disable the "set hdd passwords" menu. /endif- if hdd password not set then disable the "change master password" and "change user password" menus. /endif Normally, with a single HDD/SSD device connected, that logic works ok.... but with two storage devices the problem with this logic is that both menus will become disabled if one HDD/SSD has a password defined and the other storage device has no password defined. my work-around solution for this bug is:1) power off the system2) grab a screwdriver and remove temporarily one of the storage devices3) power on the system again and go in BIOS Security setup - define (or remove) the passwords for the device that you intend to configure. Save settings & reboot, press F2 to enter BIOS Setup again and leave i... Read more

And this is the cae of many other oem's also.So you shouldn't expect adding of a new setting in the bios until and unless it is very serious(That too would be an excption)Have a nice day

The present BIOS update for the Ideapad S10-3   with name 2ACN31WW.exe  expands upon double-click to two further WinRAR archives with names  BIOSFL5.exe and BIOSFL5C.exe .There is no further information included which file to use or what the differences might be. Upon double-click on each of these files warning messages are displayed saying:This package is build for Lenovo M13 only, don't try it on other machines.A search for Lenovo M13 on the Lenovo site returns without results. Is this a wrong BIOS update package or is Lenovo M13 an internal name for the Ideapad S10-3 ? Has anybody done a successful BIOS upgrade with any of these files ? 

Answer:Ideapad S10-3 BIOS Update safe ?

I had the same question, I did manage to flash my s10-3 with that file.  For me it seemed to automatically choose one when I clicked the exe.  Later I noticed the 2 files. CPUID reported the mainboard as the Mariana3A which may be where the M comes from.

grunf73 wrote:I need XP for some software I bought long time ago and paid much more than a laptop, so if I cant install XP laptop is unusable for me.Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate both support a Windows XP emulation mode that allows Windows XP applications to run.  If you cannot install XP successfully, you could buy a Windows 7 DVD and try installing that.  (Note: not Windows 7 Home.) Installing Windows 7 can be quite a challenge, but it is possible.  I have done this on an Ideapad 700-15ISK, but many drivers were missing.  Fortunately, the Lenovo website has most of the missing drivers for Windows 7 for the 700-15ISK, but Lenovo may not provide them for the 300-15ISK, so you should check that before embarking on a Windows 7 install. -- from CyberSimian in the UK

Hello,  I am plannig to buy the ideapad 700-15ISK (80RU00CYUS), with 256GB PCIe SSD. From reading the laptop specifications I see that there is a SATA 3 slot avaliable.  If i buy a Seagate ST2000LM007 2TB 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive will I be able to install it on the laptop? is there anything else I need to buy to connect it?Will it void tha warranty? Thanks,

Answer:Add an HDD to ideapad 700-15ISK

Hi pachecore , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Adding or upgrading your devices will not void the warranty as long as there won't be any damage done to the machine in doing so .
 
As a lot of users have done their upgrades , with 80RU00CYUS you would be needing additional HDD bracket an cable unlike if you purchase 80RU00D8US with 1TB 5400 RPM+256GB PCIe SSD on it on complete package .
 
Similar discussions here and here for your reference as post were from previous months ago but still worth a while to check. Herewith is the hardware manual guide for the upgrade you are planning.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Greetings, I would like to upgrade my laptop (Ideapad 700-15ISK) and buy a SSD. The manual has specified only one, but I would like a list with what I can buy and not having compatibility problems.  For example, I was thinking at this one: SSD Plextor M8Pe 256GB PCI Express x4 M.2 2280 px-256m8peg Can I buy it? Thank you!

Answer:SSD for Ideapad 700-15ISK

Hi crstn,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
OEM certified part for SSD upgrade via an M.2 slot (as indicated by the hardware manual (item4 page68):
Such certified parts are tested and verified compatible with the Ideapad 700-15ISK.
 
4 Part number: 5SD0J46480 SSD,128GB PM951 M.2 PCIE,Samsung MZVLV128HCGR 128GB M.2 PCIE SSD
4 Part number: 5SD0J46479 SSD,256GB PM951 M.2 PCIE,Samsung MZVLV256HCHP 256GB M.2 PCIE SSD
 
Venturing on non-OEM recommended parts, fellow members of our community verified that the following works on their system (click on the highlighted link for full discussion) for other option as I was not able to check Plextor among the post within the community forums yet.
 
simsub successfully installed a Samsung SSD SM951 (M.2 PCIe MVNe, vNAND MLC, 256Go) on this discussion.
idealmanu decided to buy the SM961 256GB which is the OEM version of the 960 PRO from here
neliel claims  it works with the IdeaPad 700. Tested and proven for a Samsung 850 evo M.2 sata SSD here.
 
I would suggest in purchasing third party parts to always check on return options just in case.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Except few things...like Nvidia Prime setting low GPU clocks after awakening laptop from sleep and fan control only possible with Energy management.I really like to play games on my laptop, so when I was playing game I have set my energy management to "efficient heat dissipation" (English is not my native language so I dunno how is it called in english) which set fan to little higher speed, and everything was ok.But about month ago I have made BIOS update from Lenovo site. Which completely reset bios setting and they must have been set manually again. Took me about half a day to make it working again. Also it somehow messed up drivers so I was forced to reinstall them all. But most importantly that BIOS update changed fan controls which means that in power management I am now able to choose only between "Normal" mode and "Dust removing" mode.( Yes, I have tried to install diferent versions on energy management....all of them from lenovo site, but none of them works)That means that now everytime I play game and temperature rise above aprox. 92C, driver sets GPU clocks approximately to the half of the original value and Game starts to have unplayable FPS.Now my laptop doesn't have apropriate cooling and fan is running like nothing important is happening while GPU is boiling at 90.Can somebody give me link to previous BIOS update?

I upgraded tp Windows 8.1, but noticed the cpu stayed at around 3 ghz with the fan running fast with no load on the computer. Perhaps upgrading to bios 2.07 will fix this problem and make it work properly with Lenovo Energy Management software ver 8.0.

Answer:32 GB Ram on Ideapad Y700-15ISK ?

Hi basitj  , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  
So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  
 
Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 
 
If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 
 
Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community.

Hi there, Malshafey ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Regarding your question the reply is yes, you can upgrade your laptop with extra SSD Drive from Samsung.
 
Better solution for SSD is Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB M.2 SSD (MZ-N5E250BW) which one you can easily obtain through Amazon with a normal price. Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB M.2 SSD (MZ-N5E250BW) AMAZON
 
Hard disk drive ? 2.5-inch, 7 mm SATA III ? 500 GB / 1 TB, 5400rpm ? HYBRID 1 TB 5400rpm SSHD (8G) ? SSD, NGFF, 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB
 
Additional important information:
 
1) If you are going to upgrade PC by yourself (install a new RAM and SSD), your warranty won't be voided.
 
2) Installing an SSD Samsung you will need a screw to attach SDD to laptop, the screw is not included in SSD pack, so there are 2 solutions, you can find or order screw from Amazon or another shop (see laptop manual attached here to see the screw type) or, you can remove 1 srew from HDD drive frame to hold SSD (3 screws are enogh to hold HDD).

Hello! Two days ago I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad 700. At the first boot it had a very strange and loud fan noise which got better after running for approx. 10 minutes. The problem is  still that I find the vents loud. I have used the exact same model before and it was running almost totally silently you could only hear the HDD working. Even when it was used for gaming it was not this loud, not producing this type of noise. Sometimes this noise stops but after a short time the vents spin up again. I have installed the drivers from Lenovo site including bios update etc. Nothing seems to help. My task manager is not showing any demanding processes. Also it is the same even if I dont use any applications just running windows clean after startup. I hope I will be able to find a solution here. I appreciate your help! Thomas

So can somebody summarize here all the things, that I need to know, before I buy one? I'm talking about:size,SATA or PCIe,max capacityand any other thing, that I don't know about. Thanks!

Solved!

Answer:Add an fingerprint to ideapad 700-15ISK

I believe it cannot be added.  No option on the palmrest and no biometric coprocessor on the motherboard.  Your option is to get a USB fingerprint readed.

Hey guys! Did you stress your i7 6700HQ? What temperatures did you get? When I stress mine, or render video and turbo turns on, two cores get 90-94 degrees. Some say it is normal for laptop processors, some say the thermal paste should be replaced.

6 month old ideapad 700 that keeps blackscreening. I've updated the bios, and the audio player and its still crashing. This first happened a couple weeks after purchasing but continues to occur now much more often. I've got no confidence in this machine particularly for business applications. What is the final fix, if there is one? Very frustrating.

Answer:Another Ideapad 700 15isk Blackscreen

Hi DoubleV,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If the service tip did not work with its offered solution:
Download the Realtek Audio driver for Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) version 6.0.1.7780 and download the latest BIOS version 35, or newer, for this system at the following URL:

Realtek Audio driver for Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) version 6.0.1.7780
BIOS version 35 or newer

Systems that display a blank screen and do not recover when rebooting, will require service by an authorized Service Center. Visit the ?How to locate a repair or service center - Idea/Think? document to find and contact the Support Center for service. 
 
Please don't hesitate to call technical support for engineers intervention.
 
Regards

Hi there,
 
Firstly, I would like to apologise if there is another similar topic! I would like to ask you if SSD Samsung SM951 128 GB (M.2 PCI Express) is compatible with Lenovo Ideapad 700-15ISK 80RU009EBM. I have to mention the fact that this laptop is not from the Y (Gaming series), it is just 700-15 (multimedia type). Thank you!

Hi, I just got my Ideapad and was super excited amd impressed with it. Went about the normal way of updating drivers, softwares and BIOS. Unfortunatey, during the BIOS update it froze or I did something and I had to hard restart. Upon restart it does start and everything but the display is blank. I can hear the logon sound and so now it is booting up normally. Tried to connect my HDTV as a monitor (which was getting connected earlier) but is unable to detect any signal. This is my work laptop as well and so would appreciate any prompt help Thanks for looking!

Answer:New IdeaPad Y570 - Bios update and screen blank

hi alok_y570during the bios process, it's not suggested to reset your computer and i believe you broke your mainboard. there are some ways to recovery the bios ( you can search the forum ) but i suggest you to contact lenovo support line for hardware support for free. warranty will cover the damage.hope this helps.
