Updating thinkpad bios
However, you’ll perform the same basic process on all motherboards.RELATED: First, head to the motherboard manufacturer’s website and find the Downloads or Support page for your specific model of motherboard.On Windows 7, 8, or 10, hit Windows R, type “msinfo32” into the Run box, and then hit Enter.The BIOS version number is displayed on the System Summary pane. Different motherboards use different utilities and procedures, so there’s no one-size-fits-all set of instructions here.RELATED: You’ll need to choose one of several different types of BIOS-flashing tools, depending on your motherboard and what it supports.The BIOS update’s included README file should recommend the ideal option for your hardware.The archive should also contain a README file that will walk you through updating to the new BIOS.
Any way, I'll wait now to see if the error 13 persists.You will be doing this at your own risk and we strongly advise you not to do it. Any BIOS update has a chance of bricking the laptop if somehow the update locks up / loses power in the middle of the critical flash process.It has no impact on the operating of the laptop that you will see any benefits from. But you really think that there would exist a laptop model out there for which every BIOS update is guaranteed to brick the machine, and no one knows of it except some idiot e Bay seller?There is no way around this issue as of yet apart from replacing the system board itself.If you decide to carry out this proceedure, we will NOT refund you.
