Preferred Solution: Seagate Firmware update, now my laptop hangs and is sluggish (Ideapad 310-15ikb 80TV)

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.)

Can anyone please tell me if the above bios update is compatible with the 'non-touch' version of this laptop. The text suggests that it is included but when it goes to install it it pauses and tells me it is only for touch versions. I am now confused and understandably reluctant to go ahead. ThanksTF.

I really need a solution to fix it. Im really worried that my hdd is faulty, meaning that i have to redo the assignment again and lose all my files. Im also worried that the service/repair will take forever as there are many people complaining about it.

I have a problem in the touchpad, it doesn't work at all, (doesn't appear in device manager and the pointer disappears when i unplug the USB mouse) I tried all methods, the fn +f6, updated Bios, updated Drivers, re-installed Windows, even I made a test with a Linux live CD and everything worked except the touchpad. In BIOS there isn't any options regarding the touchpad as wellI was wondering if there is something needed to be enabled in firmware? I wonder. what can I do at this point, I am using an external USB mouse, but I need the touchpad to be working as well.* the laptop is new, there is no physical damage at all  

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad 310 - 15ikb 80TV - no touchpad

Hello AfahmyThanks for using the Lenovo forums.
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
 
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

I got this issue for a long time. Don't know if this is a factory defect, or perhaps a design flaw on Lenovo. The battery was good to ok when I first got it, then came all the Windows 10 updates which made it worse. I would just normally use it and most of the time I only got around 1.5-2 hours. I tried everything, control start-up items, control background apps, disabled Fast Boot even reduced the screen brightness but to no avail. All my drivers are updated, even the BIOS.Does anyone have this issue? If you do, did you try any other tricks that might have even temporarily solved this issue?I wish some of the moderators can report this to Lenovo Engineers, so they can find a solution.

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 310 about a month ago, shortly after installing all reccomended updates on the Lenovo companion app, including reccomended BIOS and Windows 10 updates my laptop has started getting semi random freezes. When a freeze occurs the entire system locks up, the sound makes a very short interval constant loop, and I have to preform a full reboot. It seems to happen more frequently when playing certain games (CSGO, Left 4 Dead 2) Less frequently when playing less demanding games (Starbound, Minecraft) however sometimes it feels like it can happen at any time as it has happened a few times just browsing the internet or once while idle and downloading something in the background.Sometimes I can tell when it's about to happen. In the case where the computer is about to freeze while playing CSGO I lose connection to the server, the game tell's me it's attempting to reconnect, every time I see this the computer goes into the freeze 5-10 seconds later, This morning I was fast enough to alt tab before the freeze and noticed that my laptop said it was still connected to the internet just before it then froze and I had to reboot I have no idea what could possibly be causing this but wanted to know what my options are or wether anybody else was experiencing similar constant and seemingly random freezes

Hey,To begi, I have 2 problems since I bought this notebook about 2 weeks ago1- The performance is so poor    I am running Windows 10 and what I can notice is the bad performance from such an i7 processor @2.7 to 2.9 Ghz with 8 GB RAM(DDR4) and Nvidia Geforce 920MX(2GB)once I remove the AC Adapter and run it on the battery it tends to be slower and even when plugged in it's still giving me like the minimal performance, I have another laptop which is processor i5 @2.3 Ghz , 4 GB of RAM(DDR3), Intel Graphics Card(1GB) and it is running at much higher speed and I have tested this on some game and the i5 PC gave me a Higher FPS(90+) while the Ideapad gave me something around 60So, is it because some kind of factory settings for the lowest performance ever on that PC as I want to change it? Please give me a decent Solution for that problem as I can't work on the Ideapad this way.....2- Since I bought this laptop and I am using it regularly so I wanted to limit the battery usage to increase its lifespan so I have download Lenovo settings and Companion to Activate the Conservation Mode but It never worked, It never limited the battery to 60% and the battery still goes to completion....So I need a solution for thatThanks in advance.

I have a 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003-9YN162 like the one shown on this firmware update page:

Barracuda (1TB/disk platform) Firmware Update

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

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

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

Answer:Seagate HDD Firmware update failed. Why?

I suspect that if your drive is not listed here: ALL FIRMWARE UPDATES - see here - Seagate Community Forums

Using dell inspiron 5448 with HDD 1 TB + SSD 8 GB, windows 10, 64 bit working fine.
Found the new Seagate fimware on the dell support as follows

Seagate ST500LM000/ST1000LM014 Firmware Update


File Name: Kahuna V_ZPE.exe
Importance: Recommended


Description: Hard-Drive (47.16 MB)
Release Date: 09 Nov 2016



Version: DEMM/DEMN ,A05
The installation failed on my laptop with an alarm box showing unable to identify the boot partition, please use the USB boot key or CD ISO image of this utility instead.
Confused since installation instruction said just download and it will be automatically installed.
Called Dell but the agent said nothing they could do.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Answer:Seagate firmware update failed

I suggest you right click windows logo (or click yellow folder), click and expand 'File Explorer', 'This PC', and then check to see if Seagate update is either in your downloads or documents. If yes, I suggest you open the file and click 'Run As Administrator'.

Hello friends,I bought a Lenovo notebook a couple of days ago and installed a Sandisk SSD replacing the original 1 TB Western Digital harddisk. I installed Windows 10 and then from the Lenovo webpage i installed the required drivers etc. And with the first restart the system did not boot and poped out a epairing disc notification. But no matter what i tried disc was not repaired.Anyway i reinstalled windows 10 and after installing the drivers once again the same thing happened. I suspect intel rapid storage drivers are causing this. But have not done any trial and error attempt yet. Any of you faced such an issue ? Thank you

Ever since I got turned on my 510 for the first time, its fan has been spinning loudly, as if it was under a heavy load. Yet it isn't. Using HWMonitor I can see the temps resides at a cool ~30 degrees when idle, but the fans spins at the same level whether the temperature is 30 or 50, idle or under load. I figured perhaps a BIOS update would fix this problem, but I'm met with this error message. http://imgur.com/a/7FP0S Now, reading the error message, I can see that it addresses a EFI address. When I first got the computer, I did a clean install of Windows 10. To do this, I had to disable multiple things in BIOS such as Secure boot, Intel PTT, and enable legacy boot.  The BIOS update in question is the one below.http://support.lenovo.com/dk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/80SV/downloads/DS...

Hello, I recently bought the Lenovo Yoga 510-IKB, and when I would flip the screen, it would automatically rotate the screen.After a bunch of windows 10 updates, this function was gone. I checked regedit, and the SensorPresent was set to 0. And I can't set rotate lock anymore, anywere.  I set SensorPresent to 1 manually, but that didn't change anything either. Only yesterday I got an update from Lenovo for the bios, and I am now running V.2SCN26WW. In lenovo companion I cannot find the flip option anymore. Since they used to be in Lenovo Settings. But that app is gone now. In device manager I deleted the HID-sensorcollection v2 so that it could reinstall itself, but it didn't change anything either. Not sure what I am supposed to do now besides returning the laptop to the store.

I am using  510-15IKB Laptop(ideapad) with windows 10 and it is only 4-5 months old laptop, it shut down when it is charge 50% or less during working on battery , while battery is only 20 days old because last battery performance was not good so company change the battry. So battery as old no issue but when i am using laptop on battery after  some drain it shut down the laptop. And after that shut down laptop take 4-5 time more in starting to normal starting. During my conversion with support technician he tell me for windows recovery but it do not have any effect, then he tell me for calibration but during draining in calibration it also shut down at any percentage so it also not completed.Now i am using this new laptop as a desktop due to issue because the work i do at time of shut down goes because it only stores in RAM.  Also its BIOS is updated and all recommended drivers are updated.Some times its battery only charged upto 90% while I put it on charge for 10hours. Also its performance is not relevent as it works sometime on full charged battery for 3hours and some time only 1hous while before 1 month it was 4:30 hours-  5hours on a full charged.

Hello, my name is sebastian, I need to know if i can extend the memory ram on my "310 Touch-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80TW - Model 80TW0004US". Now it's 8gb and I need to extend to 16gb or 32gb, the laptop has 1 bank to the ram ddr4. thank you

Answer:Extend ram - 310 Touch-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80TW - Model 80TW0004US

Hi smbarrionuevo aka Sebastian,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As indicated in the specification of the hardware manual (page27):
Max supported RAM (OEM recommendation is 12 GB
Slots: SODIMM × 1, on board × 1
 
Since you have a soldered 4 GB ram, you can have another 8GB to replaced the 4GB on the slot for 12 GB.
Can't really vouch for functionality for more than 12GB although third party reseller scanner like crucial may offer something bigger like here. This was also done on by fellow member slikvic24 adding 16GB to his ideapad 310-15ISK.
Always get return options to be on the safe side.
 
If you are ok with adding just 8GB then part number and suitable 8GB OEM ram are listed here along with substitute if you need it.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi! I recently bought an Inspiron 15 7000 (7559). I went to the "Drivers and Downloads" section of the Dell website for my model and downloaded and installed the latest  drivers and updates.The issue started when I got to the "Seagate ST500LM000/ST1000LM014 Firmware Update" download. I opened the bottom of the laptop and made sure that the update was for my HDD. My model was ST1000LM014 so I downloaded the update "Kahuna_ZPE.exe" and ran it.It started to run but then stopped at where it said "rEFInd - Initializing" and a bunch of lines saying "Binary is verified by the vendor certificate". I thought maybe it just took time to initialize so I left for a workshop I needed to do at work and asked my wife to see what would happen. 8 hours after when I got home, it was still on the same screen. Now, when I switch it off and on, it always goes back to the same screen.Has anyone encountered the same issue before and know how to resolve this? Thank you.

Answer:Stuck at "rEFInd-Initializing" after trying to update Seagate HDD firmware

I had the same issue on my Dell 7559 today. When it tried to install the update it seemed to go into a loop with similar info. The only way I got it to proceed was - at the point where it changes screens (on my PC, it changes) a list of options appear. After much trial & error, I found I could move from one selection to another, then make a selection by moving the up/down keyboard arrows and entering a choice. Some of the options led to the "Safe" screen, which I couldn't find a use for. The top listing was the only one that I hit on that went through a cycle, that didn't seem to end correctly, but at least it stopped the loop. I'm sur Dell support is needed to make any sense of this one.
If I learn any more, I'll update the info.  Mike

Subject says it all, at seemingly random times my S10 now turns off, the wireless light stays on, but no screen, power/charge light, etc.  This happens with and without the power adapter plugged in, and has happened 4 times since updating 3 days ago.  It hasn't happened when I'm using it, twice when it was idle (It makes a great alarm clock at 3am) and twice when waking it from sleep. In order to turn it back on I need to hold down the power button to hard reset, unplugging power adapter doesnt help, battery has a full charge. Anyone else having this issue?  It's stock except upgraded memory (1gb DDR2 667), which I swapped out to make sure it wasnt causing the issue.  This never happened with the old firmware.  I don't see anyway to downgrade it to the old firmware either.. Original S10 ordered in august, shipped in early Oct (Mft Date 9/25/08), 512mb/80gb 10.2" running the included XP home. http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/lenovo/drivers/2412/5696.html   was firmware update.  Applied because the boot-on-one key recovery button was annoying.  Update applied fine, rebooted, everything else seems fine.Message Edited by jonthompson on 11-29-2008 02:25 PMMessage Edited by jonthompson on 11-29-2008 02:27 PM

On the task bar my audio symbol has a red x next to it.  When I place the curser over the audio symbol it displays the message "No Audio Output Device is installed".  I have downloaded The Realtek driver and after installing the driver I got the message "The driver installation wizard successfully scanned your machine but did not find any device to be updated".  I ran the device manager and it does not list a device for audio/sound/speaker.  I have not removed any hardware from my computer and the sound was working before the firmware update 2.23.0.  I had the same problem several months ago after an update and I downloaded the driver and it corrected the problem.  My computer is under warranty so where do I get it fixed?

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

I bought new V310-15IKB Laptop and I've been using it for three days. Today I turned it on like always (the battery was fully charged the day before, so without the charger connected to it) and a windows update popped out. But at the same time at the screen there was some weird message (I made a photo) So I clicked Enter and it turned on. I saw that the battery is 97% and connected the charger, but it wasn't charging at all to my surprise (it's written 'connected, not charging'). I reset the laptop and problem is still the same. When I disconnect the charger the battery is running lower (from 97% to 95% and so on), when I connect it it's not charging. It's a huge problem for me, I need laptop to work, so I asked my friend to help, but he checked the saving energy thing in lenovo companion and it's turned off, we have no idea why this problem with battery exists. I need my laptop for work, if I can't get it fixed in a few days I have to go to the shop and return the laptop and buy something else instead. I really like it, don't want to do that, anyone can help me with my problem? And sorry but English is not my first language, I tried to translate everything the best I could.

Answer:New V310-15IKB Laptop, battery doesn't charge after the update.

Looks like Windows Update is trying to update your BIOS. Maybe try connect device to power socket and repeat the update.

After the original hd on my R52 started to go, I upgraded to a Seagate ST9160821A 160 gig drive. Two problems came up immediately.  First was the 2010 error that is fully documented in this forum.  I "got around" that by modifying the bios to just continue on past that message.  Second was that I'd used Drive Image software to make an image of the old drive, and upon restoring that image to the new drive, the smaller partition, rather than the whole 160 gigs was being used.  I got around that with some free partitioning software, that opened up the whole drive for use. Unbelievably though, in a matter of weeks, I was seeing disk errors from the new drive.  I've ordered ANOTHER new ST9160821A though and so I guess I'll be okay. Except, I just saw today, from http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_with_non-ThinkPad_hard_disks that the "active protection system" may be deactivated because of the 2010 error.  So I'm guessing that the laptop was carried while in use (my daughter is the one who uses it), and that the motion was what damaged the drive in a matter of weeks. So is there firmware available - or something available - so that the ST9160821A can be used, without generating the 2010 error, and most importantly, with the APS able to work? I've seen posts on this forum that hint at that, but I need some explicit information on how to make it work, if it's possible.  Where do I get the firmware, and how, very step by ...

January 26, 2009 (Computerworld) Last week, Seagate Technology LLC tried to appease users who for the past two months have swarmed its online support forum to complain that desktop hard drives have been freezing up during data transfers or failing altogether.

Seagate late last week released the second of two fixes for the firmware bug that caused the problem, and it offered affected users free data recovery services from its i365 business unit.

The company first tried to fix the bug on Jan. 16, but new firmware it released that day had flaws of its own.

use the link above for the original article
 

Answer:Warning: Seagate HD Firmware issues

I've been following this for the past couple of weeks now, I think the point the article is trying to make is that the 1st firmware revision released on the 16th also bricked drives, but the 2nd firmware fix is OK... at least the drive I applied the 2nd firmware to is fine.

I've got 5 more to try.

As soon as I plug the cable in to the PC port the screen freezes and showing only the desktop. Any open window cannot be accessed and even though I can bring up the start menu I cannot launch any program and see it (the program runs but I cannot see it). The HDMI connection works well. Has anybody had the same problem? Can it be a display setting set wrong? Please advise.Many thanks in advance.

Hello Nordinator,
 
you can try to install Windows 7, but it is not supported.
There are no drivers, because i.e. Intel doesn't support Windows 7 on a Kaby Lake CPU.

Hi guys,I bought a new 510-15IKB (i5-7200U type). It came with DOS, I installed win10 and configured everything, installed drivers etc. My problem is the fan, it keeps working constantly in idle, even on battery, on battery saver mode, so it just totally neglects the energy management settings (passive cooling, etc.) and CPU temps (34 Celsius and the fan keeps working).The fan is working in its lowest state (maybe, never heard it be quieter), so the problem is not a loud fan, rather that the fan never turns off during idle. I'm an IT guy, I know how to make things work etc, but this just can't be solved by me.What I tried:- Restart etc.- Reinstall drivers from support page downloads- Install newest drivers from parts manufacturers (intel etc.)- Set different energy management settings- Updated UEFI to newest version (3JCN23WW)- updated win10 totally- ran malwarebytes anti-malware and kaspersky internet security 2017, both finished without finding anything- restarted with discrete graphics turned off in uefi- restarted with fast boot turned off in uefi- even tried it using an Ubuntu live session and it is the same And there is a strange buzzing sound on movement if it is perpendicular to the surface of the fan, it's really quiet, but happens on smaller movements too, and it even happened once while the laptop was completely still on the table. This part of my problem might be totally normal, so my bigger problem is with it not turning off.It seems like a UEFI problem... Read more

Answer:Ideapad 510-15IKB fan never idling

Tried reflashing the same BIOS but it did not help anything (as I tought it wouldn't).Moreover, the fan made the buzzing sound again, I could make it go away by tilting the whole laptop 90 degrees back to vertical position and then to horizontal.

Hi, Driven by the good performance of some Lenovo Thinkpads from friends, I just bought an Ideapad 510-15IKB and everything is just great, except for the fun noise! It is completely insane, I can hear all the time, even after booting without anything running. After searching a lot on the web it seems to me that this is quite usual on this Lenovo machines and the company is not answering at all to the customers request. Is it that hard to release a bios update that changes the behavior of the fan or does it mean that this design has a cooling problems and it needs to have the fan constantly running?I know that it is not fair to argue that the temperature of the cpu is around 35C and the fan is running, because if the fan was not running the temperature would be higher for sure, but would it be higher enough to justify that the fan is always running at a earable pace? I guess that we, the customers, just want an answer from Lenovo, either saying that this is like it is and we need to live with that or, the preferable one, a BIOS update... In my case, I will wait a couple more days to see if any solution comes up and if not, I will be returning the laptop and buy something that is not Lenovo. ThanksPedro

Answer:Does IdeaPad 520-15IKB 81BF004NRI

Hi stefboy01,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
In general sense, upgrades such as adding optical drive should not void the hardware warranty as long as nothing gets damaged during and after the process taken. This however may be different from each region as Optical drives are non CRU parts (non customer replaceable parts as it would need special tools to perform).
 
Detailed discussion about warranty and upgrades here.
 
Best action plan is to just inform technical support of your planed upgrade. It would also help them document the upgrades since those we add is not part of the original in-warranty parts to avoid confusion in future repairs.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

According the official technical specifications on Lenovo's website, the IdeaPad 520 (15IKB) notebook has two USB 3.0 ports and one type-C port. But on my IP 520, the two USB-A ports don't have the expected blue colour coding for USB 3.0 and also they both don't have the (SuperSpeed) SS-USB symbol. Instead they have the regular USB trident symbol. Only the type-C port has the SS-USB symbol. The Windows Device Manager lists three USB related drivers viz.Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)USB Composite DeviceUSB Root Hub (USB 3.0) So, the IP 520 really does have two USB 3.0 ports or it's a gimmick?

Could I charge my IdeaPad 320-15IKB notebook through its USB Type-C input (from a power bank for example)?
