The new error was the cause of complaints of users of devices range the Lenovo ThinkPad
The Lenovo forums and Reddit have begun to overwhelm the message about the dangers of the changes to the BIOS settings, that may be the cause of turning laptops into a “brick” – a complete failure.
Users are faced with an unpleasant situation, when switched the option “BIOS support for Thunderbolt” or “Thunderbolt BIOS Assist” (depending on model), which caused cyclic reboot or no POST when turn on, which indicates the damage to the firmware of the UEFI BIOS.
Different attempts to “revive” the non-working laptop, such as replacing RAM, hard drive, removing CMOS battery, restart more than 50 times – no help. After visiting service cents affected users found that the only solution is to replace the motherboard, and it is not cheap, if the laptop is not on warranty.
According to user reports, the problem occurs on devices ThinkPad P52, ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018, P52s ThinkPad, ThinkPad ThinkPad P72 and P1. Currently, the exact number of affected models is unknown, except that the problem does not extend to the budget model L380 ThinkPad or ThinkPad E480 and released until 2017 because they have no support for Thunderbolt.
Then they were caught booting in the BIOS, not removed samostalni, in the space reserved for custom drivers.
This scandal is particularly noteworthy because for the luxury brand Thinkpad purchased in IBM. It is worth noting that in the 21st century, if you are willing to pay for the product you are the product. In the case of Lenovo devices it seems that even if you pay for the product remain in the product.
