Preferred Solution: Yoga 720-13IKB Bios update on Linux

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.)

On the page https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/len-17297, the Yoga 910 is not listed as one of the laptops that will receive this security update. Intel's test tool at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27150 confirms that this laptop is vulnerable. Can someone at Lenovo add the 910 to the list of laptops that will be updated?

I am wondering what the best choice is to squeeze the best performace out of this NVMe SSD. Some say chance the bios setting to ACHI and some say use Intel RST Premium.  I read this post from reddit:The issue is that Lenovo was making use of a disgustingly ugly hack to make it appear that a NVMe device was attached through an ACHI controller. Intel apparently added this functionality to recent chipsets as a shortcut to adding NVMe support to their fake RAID system. This feature is mostly undocumented and completely unwanted by anyone running Linux or using OS-provided software RAID under Windows instead of Intel's software RAID. So far, Intel has not convinced the relevant Linux kernel developers to add the necessary hacks to the Linux NVMe and AHCI drivers.In any normal situation, a motherboard firmware setting for AHCI vs RAID vs IDE modes has nothing to do with PCIe SSDs, because they do not connect through SATA ports. There are no PCIe SSDs on the market that the user can toggle between NVMe and AHCI, though there are still some AHCI PCIe SSDs that are based on the same hardware as their NVMe equivalents and are simply configured in the factory (permanently) as AHCI devices instead of NVMe. If a machine purports to offer a firmware option to change between AHCI and NVMe modes, it is lying to you about what that option means. If the choice is between AHCI and RAID modes but it affects PCIe SSDs, then selecting ACHI mode probably means the system will operate in a... Read more

Purchased new from Best buy in May 2017.  All has worked perfectly until now.  Left my computer for a while while it did some Win10 updates and come back and the Lenovo splash screen is on the screen.  Will not go past that.  I can shut it down by holding the power button but when restated the keyboard lights up and the splash screen comes up and that is it. I have tried pushing the little recovery button while the laptop was off and it does the same thing as the power button and sticks at the splash screen.  $1800 door stop!!! Anyone got any suggestions

Memory 1GB - Kinston - KTT667D2/1G
Ubuntu 8.04 - Ubuntu Netbook Remix -CD from Toshiba
CD-rw/DVD-rw LG GE20 externel USB-drive
Keyboard differences

Hi,

I was very happy to buy my netbook from Toshiba.

First I configured the System ready - reaching the Ubuntu-desktop the first time and everything was fine. Then I navigated the menues and soon found "Aktualisierungsverwaltung" in German - should be "Updatemanagement" in English - and started. After that I had a slow system with, no soundcard and the later downloaded bios-udate 1.6 did not work too.

I bought the LG DVD-burner (~75US/~60Eur) and restored the system with the Ubunto Remix-DVD. That worked good and is done in about 10 minutes. I bought a Kingston memorymodule too and replaced the original one. The Kingston-modul works fine too.

After i had read the thread, that the BIOS-update doesn´t work after Ubuntu-update I tried it again and now I have a good working BIOS 1.6.

But I have still 2 faullts:

The "|" (pipe-symbol) is not as shown on the keyboard Fn+X - it is Fn+Alt+<.

The 151 Update-"pakets" still damage the System - I tried it out for 2 times doing nothing but restore, setting network and updating.

The new sound-driver 1.06 I found at Toshiba-Germany and Toshiba-France are dead links (404), the Toshiba help line will now fix this since 2 weeks and do not call back.

Any ideas?

I bought my wife a Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB about a year ago and it has always had trouble connecting to the internet. We are now living overseas (in the Khalij) and her computer barely ever detects the WiFi network at all! This happened occasionally in the US but we could connect it via Ethernet so it wasn't really a problem. But it's pretty much unusable here because of the crap WiFi card, frequency, or whatever in the machine. I've seen some posts asking for help with SLOW internet but her computer almost NEVER gets signal or, if it does see the network, it cannot connect. PLEASE, can anyone help?!?!? Joshua

Will appreciate help - I am alarmed that most of my document files have suddenly disappeared from the desktop and, seemingly, the hard disk.  This laptop is eight months old and I initially suspected a "cloak of invisibility" problem while awaiting a software update.  Random individual files and folders appeared in the recycle bin, but most have disappeared completely.  Virus scan and hardware scan have not identified any problems or out of date software.  I did receive a completely blank email today before this happened (no visible sender, no subject line) - not opened - which is suspicious.  Researching this online, I see several related queries about icons disappearing from the desktop, but am doubtful that my issue is the same.   Still unsure if this is a Lenovo update issue or a virus disaster.   Any suggestions?    Many thanks!

I'm experiencing a very annoying blinking/flickering of the built-in 4K display.Have a look at this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vdd4UICu_T4On the movie it isn't nearly as bad as in reality. The flickering is only visible with a blue, dark gray or purple color background. White, red or black is fine. The issue appears to be independent of the OS - the same can be observed in Linux or even in the BIOS.It all started after I attached a second screen (FullHD 24 inch using Thunderbold->HDMI adapter) in Windows 10 (latest Intel display drivers as of January 26, 2018).Just after connecting the external display the laptop screen went gibberish but the external display worked fine. After disconnecting the screen and restarting the computer the blinking started. It looks like a problem with the refresh rate. The laptop display behaves like an old CRT display with a low refresh rate I found this procedure https://support.lenovo.com/pl/en/solutions/ht500364 in another thread and followed it but unfortunately it didn't help.  The computer is almost brand new (bought in December, top version i7-8550U, 16GB RAM, 1TB NVMe, 4K UHD display). Any help appreciated.

Hi guys. I recently bought new laptop (yoga 910) and don't properly understand its RAM specs. All oficial docs said that laptop have 16 Gb ddr4 2133 MHz, but tests (Speccy and CPU-z) shows that RAM have only 664MHz for one channel (16.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 664MHz (10-10-10-28)). I heard that using XMP settings in BIOS I can change memory speed, but I can't find it. So, the questions are: does Lenovo downgraded RAM in all laptops and other users have the same specs, if yes, then how to change it (1200 MHz is less then DDR3 speed), else, what should I do next, is it something wrong with my laptop?

I picked up a 13 inch FHD Lenovo Yoga 720 (720-13IKB) and love absolutely everything about it except some extremely bad ghosting / screen tearing. I first noticed it when I loaded up Spelunky, where it is incredibly obvious because of how fast the character can run left and right. I've tried everything to figure this out - adjusted Intel graphics settings, researched vsync settings, updated drivers, turned off Windows effects, played with executable compatibility settings, and so on and so forth. Nothing seems to help. I noted in the other "display issues" thread that the panel ended up being the culprit, a BOE panel. This panel is also a BOE - BOE06FA. I found one mention of this on notebookcheck regarding screen brightness. They note a "panel lottery" going on with this model, where some get LG panels and some are getting BOE panels. Everything else seems fine (no line). I would really love it if there were some fix I've overlooked, but I thought I would ask here if anyone else is experiencing this on this model, and if they've gotten it fixed if so. Is it possilbe to send it in for repair and request or get a different panel? Really, really don't want to have to return it, but also can't have a machine that will give me a headache playing Spelunky!

Hello everyone,  I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 720 13IKB. I've only have the unit for about three (3) weeks and the batter is no longer able to charge when connected to the power supply that came with the unit. I checked the AC adapter to make sure that it was properly connected to PC and it was. I plugged it to different outlets and it didn't help. I bought a replacement powersupply from my local MicroCenter and still nothing. I checked the Control Panel, open up the Power Options to see if there were any settings in there but nothing to show why it wasn't chraging. Then Opened the Device Manager. Under "Batteries" I saw two items, one for the battery and another listed as "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery". I Opened each item, which will brought up the Properties window. Under the "Driver" tab looked for "Update Driver." I went through the two options and did the same process of updating drivers. I went through the driver update process for all options. Once the drivers are all up to date, I rebooted the laptop and plug it in again. Then i unninstalled "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" completely and reboot. Still the problem persists.  I even updated all the windows Updates. Then I opened Lenovo's Companion app. I updated all the drivers that need updating and nothing changed.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 720 13IKB No longer charging

Is it not charging at all, or just stuck at around 60%.    I ask because there i an option in Energy Management to select Maximum Battery Life, or Optimized Battery Health, and if set the latter (which I believe is the default), it will only charge to about 60 percent of capacity in an attempt to prolong the life of the battery.    Setting it to Maximum battery life will allow the batter to charge to 100% and you will get a longer run time, but you may have to replace the battery sooner.     If you leave the laptop usually plugged in, then optimized batter health is the better option. Cheers,

I get both power delivery and am able to extend the screen onto the monitor in 4K resolution using one USB-C cable. I am writing here to help others, but also because there is a power cycling order in which it does not work, which I would like to know if someone knows what it is. If I play with it enough, I get back to making it work again, but have not figured out the order of rebooting, connecting and disconnecting cables where it consistently works.

I've recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 13IKB, considering the battery as one of its biggest pros due to some reviews and adds I read in the Internet. Unfortunately, even after a 100% charge, I can't get no longer than 4h30 / 5 h of battery lifetime prediction / battery lifetime.  I have already decreased brightness, I almost have no apps running in background, but unfortunately it doesn't gets better. The situation is even worse considering that I'm not doing anything but surfing online, texting in word or taking a look at some pictures in Windows Gallery. Have anyone experienced the same problem? Can someone please help me? Is that true that we can get 10h30 (or a bit less, I wouldn't care) like it was advertised or that was just a commercial bait? Thanks in advance!

Then I had tried to uninstall all drivers and than download and install them again but still the problem is there. Wherever Yoga connects WiFi dies.

After updating brand new Yoga 910 with WIndows updates, AND firmware 1.39.00.00 Windows asks to restart this one every time. Even it installed several other times the same update, it keeps on telling me it has to restart to finish.Then once it restarts, says during the boot below the Lenovo image - system updating, but it never updates it. And then again in Windows asks for restart, ,... just a vicious loop!How can I remove this firmware update for good?

Connected an IOGear compact dock to the laptop's USB C. Connected monitor #1 to the dock's HDMI port.Connected an HDMI cable to monitor #2 and used an HDMI to mini display port adapter to connect to the docks mini diplay port.I used the "Extend Display" setting on the laptop.I can only get display on the laptop monitor and one of the external monitors.  I can't get the display to work on both external monitors.  Second external monitor is not detected.  Help please. I am told that a plugable usb type c docking station would work, it has two "Disply ++ Ports".  Suggestion is to use an HDMI to DP++ cable to connect to the dual external monitors. Haven't tried it yet, does anyone know whether that'll work?

The adapter cannot keep a 2.4 GHZ connection and has trouble with wired and wireless at the same time and is missing all advanced settings allowing you to turn off 2.4, etc... I will return my laptop unless this is fixed. This is a fundemental issue with the chipset and design.1. The adapter has no advanced settings. It has been stripped of all the standard configurations.2. I have watched this driver from a monitoring computer standpoint and on 2.4 networks it loses connections all the time and sometimes will get into a connection loop when there is hard wire and wireless are on at the same time.3. When both adapters are enabled it does not work well at all.4. Signal strength / antenna performance is terrible. Side by side comparison with other devices shows bad performance. -50 vs -90 etc... a big swing in signal strength.There needs a new driver with ALL ADVANCED SETTINGS - for example prefer 5GHZ networks.no settings

Hi. I have a lenovo G50-80.The BIOS update aviable on the web site is a .exe file executable only on Windows systems. How can I update the BIOS under linux?

Answer:Bios Update under Linux

Tricky... The BIOS file is buried in the compressed (zipped) .exe file, is identified by the .ROM extension.  Obvioulsy running from a DOS prompt under Linux may not work with the "Windows" updater program as it may not have the ablity to interact with the EEPROM.
 
I would check with your Distro support team for a working Linux bios flasher that could read/use the Lenovo ROM but proceed carefully - if it fails to work you may end up with a very expensive door stop.

Answer:How to update BIOS on Linux

BIOS updates for your notebook are provided in softpaq form for use in Windows only.  Some HP notebooks do have Linux BIOS upgrade support, but unfortunately yours is not one of them. If you want to update the BIOS, then you will have to install Windows. Any Windows version from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 will suffice. The BIOS updates are in the driver and software  download section of the support portal for the Probook 4440s notebook at the following URL.http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5229487&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4158

For the Linux version, it's in the form of a .sh, however, it's not a standard shell script. Is this something to be just run from a command prompt? Anyone know or could someone point me to the documentation I don't seem to be able to find regarding this?

Hi

On the Toshiba EU driver page you can find only the win-based BIOS update version.
This means that BIOS can be updated from running system only and you need to run Windows OS in order to start the BIOS update procedure. Linux isn't supported in this case...

Hi all,

I have a 3 yo Toshiba Satellite A200-193 (PSAEC), bought in France, it was apparently not released in the US - or not under thos reference - because I can't find it in the Toshiba bios database. (I could post in a french forum but there is no such support :-/ )

The bios is a Phoenix,v1.30. This bios is known for having an inside bug, preventing unofficial and unpatched OS like linux to deal correctly with acpi (fan control in particular). The temperature is higher than it should be.

I tried to update my bios to 1.80 through the toshiba fr website, but I have and alert saying "This bios has to be used with Vista Only".
Okay, so this is purely scandalous considering specific OS instructions have NOTHING to do inside a bios, what are my options?

Has someone installed this BIOS? Did it end up correctly ?

Thanks a lot

Answer:Satellite A200-193 - BIOS update on Linux

Hi buddy,

Please don?t understand me wrong but Toshiba doesn?t provide any support for Linux. That means you have to search yourself for drivers or solutions and that?s the reason why BIOS update is only Windows Vista supported.

That means if you want to do this update you have to install the preinstalled OS from Toshiba, I think in this case Vista. Then you are able to update the BIOS.

Thank you for the answer

Answer:Satellite P100-437 - How to update BIOS on Linux?

Hi

First of all what notebook you have exactly?

Normally the BIOS can only be updated on Windows so you have to install Windows to update the BIOS. The point is that BIOS update is only possible on preinstalled OS and that?s not Linux. ;)

Alternative you can contact an authorized service provider. Maybe they can update the BIOS in DOS mode via bootable disk or floppy. It?s worth a try?

John___Smith Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Sorry, but I don't have very good news for you ...THIS is the primary reason many folks retain dual-boot setups with both MS Windows and a Linux distro -- the apps that OEMs provide for updating BIOS only run in MS Windows, not in Linux. If you have an MS Windows box, you can install and run 7-Zip to uncompress the HP BIOS softpaq archives into the constituent files.  But then, you still need a BIOS flash utility to apply the updates, and HP does not supply one that runs in Linux.

Answer:Satelitte A110-180 - Update Bios for Windows 7 and Linux

Hi

Satellite A110 does not support such options (SATA AHCI).
The BIOS update will not help you!

Linux is not supported and therefore you will not find any special BIOS for Linux OS!

The both BIOS updates are for Win Vista or OS independent.
Therefore if you are using OS other as Vista then you should take the OS independent BIOS update!

But like mentioned above; both options will not appear after BIOS update!

I just got my Y2P.  Do I need to install this update?  What does it do?

Answer:Yoga 2 BIOS update v38

I'm a 'newbe' to this forum but will try to clarify in a non technical way.  The BIOS contains the basic data for the pc to startup; as sort of brain stem with all the electronic DNA between the full function allowing the machine to boot (start up).Updating the BIOS is rather like updating a programme to a revised version however 'flashing the BIOS is not without risk as it can destroy or corrupt vital data resulting in a boot failure mode. I've just done my update and there was a concern. Upon completion it did not automatically reboot as the instructions indicated. I was left with a blank screen and keyboard illuminated.  Very reluctant to switch off as this can destroy the BIOS completely. I contacted the support desk and indeed this seems to be a known problem of not completing reboot. Instructions werre to hold down the on/off button for at lest 8 seconds and it did indeed complete reboot successfully.My tip is print off the instructions before you start so you can recognise the step by step process. It only lists seven steps but the Tech Support desk has others beyond that.(!/?)Top marks to the UK technical help desk tele 0333 777 3991 (hope you wont need it!)
