Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: 130 - Can't Enter BIOS

Nov 20, 2012

I just bought an Edge 130 and wanted to set it up today. But I just can't enter the BIOS! I keep pressing F1 during the Lenovo splash screen. I've pressed it repeatedly, held it down, I even tried it with the Fn button pressed. Nothing worked.
I've have been working with and professionally supporting Lenovo (and before IBM) notebooks for over 10 years and not once did I have such a problem. This is only the second E-series notebook I have ever had. I bought myself an E525 last summer and had no such problems and at work we have T-, X- and W-series.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: ThinkPad E430 Keyboard Acts Like Enter Key Is Continuously Pressed

Jul 15, 2014

I own a Thinkpad E430(type 3254). It's about 14 months old. Yesterday, it randomly started having an issue with it's keyboard. It acts like the enter key is continuously pressed, and about 1 sec after I hit any other key it stops. The enter key by itself has stopped working, and only shorts sometimes and results in a continuous press.
As soon as i boot, enter input is given and normal startup gets interrupted. If i press any key, it's normal again until an OS loads. For example, if i boot into debian, line breaks get inserted between the console messages that are displayed until i press a key, and if i boot windows, it gets stuck at the login screen because enter is given without the correct password so it loops. This behavior also happens sometimes randomly while working normally.
The keyboard hasn't even seen heavy usage, or any drink spills. I usually keep the laptop at my desk, and use an external keyboard. The last time I took it out was 2 weeks ago. I doubt it can be a software issue, so do I need a new keyboard?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z580 With Windows 7 - Can't Enter BIOS

Jul 4, 2012

My machine is Lenovo Z580 with Windows 7. Some time ago I accidentally installed Linux Mint on my whole HDD, so all the partitions and files (including recovery partition) were erased. I then installed back Windows 7 and partitioned the HDD.

However, since the incident, I'm unable to enter BIOS. I'd like to change boot sequence, because the laptop wants to boot from network, displays an error, and then boots from HDD and Windows 7 starts. I can access boot manager with F12 during boot, and the entries are (those aren't the exact names of course, except the first one):
1. ubuntu <- yes, that's how it's called. I guess it's a remnant of Linux Mint installation
2. booting from network
3. booting from HDD
4. booting from DVD
5. booting from USB
I tried the following things:
1. pressing F2 at boot. it used to work before the incident, now the laptop ignores it and proceeds to attempting boot from network, displays an error, and then boots from HDD.
2. using Novo button instead of power button, then choosing "BIOS setup" option - the laptop still proceeds to boot OR displays black screen and need to be shut down
3. removing boot entries using Ubuntu via USB stick [URL] ..... - I can't remove any entry, because after using
>efibootmgr -v
no list appears, and when I enter
>efibootmgr -B -b 001
or any other number, I get an error that the entry wasn't found.
I can't flash BIOS because Lenovo didn't provide the necessary file for this model. I also can't sent the laptop to repair because my warranty period ended two months ago.
So, I flashed the file attached here: [URL] .... and everything works now! the "ubuntu" entry has been automatically deleted and I was able to access BIOS and change the boot order.
Before installing ... write down MAC address of your LAN card, because it'll get deleted after BIOS update!

1. press windows key+R, type cmd and press Enter.....
2. in the opened command window, type ipconfig /all and press Enter, find the entry regarding your Ethernet connection and write down the physical address....
3. Flash BIOS update
4. After reboot follow this guide: [URL] .....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Cannot Enter BIOS Of ThinkPad T530

Sep 12, 2012

I am unable to enter the BIOS (or the boot device and application menu) of my T530. When I press Enter at the 'Press Enter to interrupt normal startup' prompt, nothing happens. It just ignores my input completely. F1 doesn't do anything either.
Otherwise my ThinkPad is working fine, but I would like to change some settings (especially change the boot device, to boot from USB).

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Can't Enter Into W530 UEFI-BIOS

It seems I got the same problem that customers have with the T530. After removing the bios password I have no chance to get into the BIOS.
Bios Version: 1.11 (uefi only enabled)
OS: Windows 8 (x64)
I tried:
- Remove all drives (mSATA SSD, ODD, HDD)
- Press F1 at the Lenovo screen
- Tried all options in the Windows boot menu
- Pressed the Enter key at the Lenovo screen
Unfortunately there don't exist a BIOS update for the W530. So how I get into the BIOS?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E540 - Can Disable Discrete Gpu (Optimus) From BIOS?

Jul 15, 2014

I'm thinking of buying a Thinkpad E540 with a discrete nvidia gpu. I am planning to install linux on it and I don't really need optimus for it (nor is it well supported) but I'd like to occasionally be able to use it on windows.
I'd like to know if it's possible to completely turn off the nvidia gpu from the BIOS so it works only with the integrated intel one or should I buy one with intel gpu only.
I have read that the lenovo changed the dual gpu implementation on the latest generation thinkpads.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Cannot Access Uefi Bios Anymore On E535

Sep 23, 2012

I recently bought a new E535 laptop working like a charm up to now. Bios access was possible by pressing Enter directly after switching machine one, than came some sort of POST analysis which could be skipped by pressing any key and than came some sort of table where I could access Bios by pressing some key (cannot remember which it was exactly). Alternatively I could enter Bios when in boot menu by pressing tab which switched to another tab where Bios could be entered (also some sort of diagnosis programs could be started). As mentioned in the subject it is impossible for me to do this now, after I did the following:
- exchanged built in HDD with an new SSD (Bios access yet possible)
- changed in Bios Setup boot mode from both (legacy + UEFI) to Uefi only (this might be the problematic point but I'm not sure)
- Installed Windows 7 in Uefi mode on ssd
No when I press enter on startup it brings me to Windows boot manager menu (you know where you can say start Windows normally or in safe mode and so). Boot menu also changed with a new "start windows" entry (well, this seems to be correct), but when switching to the other tab it is empty now, no entry for Bios setup or diagnosis tests anymore.
This is really bad. I have googled around and tried the following up to now without success:
- Pressing F1 instead of enter
- Shutdown laptop, and start with F1 pressed down
- starting without HDD
- starting unmodified HDD which was originally installed in laptop (which cannot be booted anymore, probably because it was installed in legacy mode)
I have also thought about flashing the bios, but the newest version available on lenovo support seems to be 1.04, but pre installed on my laptop is 1.10, so my version is a lot newer. Should I try to flash it nevertheless ?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: ThinkPad E330 Can't Get Into BIOS / UEFI Anymore

Sep 2, 2013

I got a really annoying problem with my E330. It came without an OS, so I put Win 8 on the preinstalled HDD. Then I switched it out for a SSD and put Win 7 on it. (everything in UEFI mode)

Since then I can't get into the BIOS/UEFI anymore by either pressing Enter or F1. Pressing Enter still gives me a beep, but then Windows continues to load normally instead of showing several options like it used to do.

And yes I'm aware that I need a cold-boot in Win 8 to get into UEFI ... The only way to access UEFI at the moment is through the Win 8 charms-bar restart into UEFI trick.
I tried already to reflash the BIOS which doesnt work obviously since it's the same version, tried removing the CMOS battery, that gave me a one time opportunity to get into the UEFI with F1 when it complained about the date/time.

Switching to Legacy only leads me to an infinite PXE - something error loop, but I still cant get into the BIOS.

I tried pressing every combination of Fn+F-Keys and without Fn. Nothing works. I don't want to return the notebook, but it's a deal breaker for me if I can't get Win 7 running on it with accessible UEFI.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: 0302-2BU Missing BIOS UUID And Serial Numbers On ThinkPad

Dec 13, 2011

I am currently working on a ThinkPad Edge 15 0302-2BU for a client of mine. The system is able to POST and I can enter the BIOS but the UUID is all zeros and the Machine Type Model, System-unit serial number, and System board serial number are all blank.
I went to the support page for this model and downloaded the ISO file with bootable BIOS update utility for BIOS ver. 2.20 (82ET80WW) I updated the BIOS in case there were any issues with the current BIOS release. Rebooted then went to update the model number off the bootable utility. I entered the model number, Updated, and Rebooted again. Still having the same issue. The model number didn’t record after I punched it in.
I am still able to POST and get into the BIOS configuration. The system will not load an OS or boot off a CD into something like Windows PE.

I'm not sure if Windows not being able to load is due to the BIOS or not but I'm inclined to think so since I have trouble booting off CD.

Dell XPS 17 L702X :: Cannot Enter BIOS Setup

Feb 5, 2015

I have recently been completely unable to access the set-up area of my bios on my Dell XPS 17 L702x laptop. On booting, i keep pressing the F2 key which seems to be registered by the BIOS as the text that says 'Set-Up' lights up. However, instead of entering the setup, the BIOS simply continues booting my operating system. Even if I remove all of the hard drive's, I cannot enter the set up and the BIOS boots to the PXE Setup.

I have tried reflashing the BIOS but nothing changes, the set-up is still inaccessible. I can't even change the boot order using the F12 key.

I really need access to my BIOS and I am all out of options.
