Cannot update T470 BIOS from version 1.30
I’ve been having an issue for a while now where I cannot update my BIOS from version 1.30. I additionally appear to be having issues with the Intel ME:

When attempting to install a BIOS update either via the .exe or via bootable USB, the process appears to successfully flash but fail to reboot the system. After waiting several hours, I forcibly rebooted the system to find that the update wasn’t applied.
I believe the issue with the BIOS and the ME state are linked – the 1.30 has some hibernation/reboot bugs and I think the ME is in a corresponding state also preventing successful reboots. At the moment, I cannot reboot or shutdown my T470 and regularly have to make use of the reset button to force a shutdown.
What are my options for forcibly updating the BIOS if I can’t rely on the OS to cleanly shut down?

Yesterday there was a small windows update. After the mandatory reboot my mic stopped working. Looking in the recording devices, the list is empy.
P51 bad keyboard/Getting sick of lenovo
I have been working on getting a good laptop for the last 2.5 months and I’m sick of the run around. What is going on with lenovos quality control? What’s up with lenovos customer support?
I was trying to get a good computer for school and I notice that I can get a nice discount for a P51 and I really like how it looks, so I try to get it. Bank doesnt really like that I’m trying to spend too much money at once and it declines. That woudnt have been a big deal if it wasnt for the fact that it caused my coupon that I was using for my discount to fail. So I contact support to see what I can do about it and I get someone who wont stop repeating themselves like I’m stupid and keeps telling me the coupon has been used then gives me a price that is about $200 more than the one I had. I insist and eventually get a price that is *gasp* $100 dollars more than what it was. I give up for the day and try again tomorrow using the same code on a different cart. And it works! And I confirm that I was indeed being cheated!
I put that behind me, get the new pc then I have to deal with my order being cancled like 3 times because of the incompetence of support and something in lenovos order system not liking my email. After a couple of weeks that gets mostly sorted out. THEN it declines my payment for some reason after I had previously accepted it. After a bunch of wasted time I put it on a credit card instead and that works for some reason.
Weeks later I get my laptop with a big scratch on it! Call up support again and get a replacement in the mail. That replacement come weeks later and I am on it now. But guess what. The keyboard is deffective. The keys are shifted to the left and the track point left click catches! And its Saturday so I cant even call them up and try to figure this out!
I never even got expidited shipping during any of this or anything to make up for this gauntlet. I just want a quality laptop, is that so much to ask for after I’ve shelled out the money to buy it?
I have half a mind to take out the keyboard from the scratched laptop and swap it with this one. But I’m not sure if that will cause problems with part numbers and stuff, I dont want to be charged more money if it does, and I shouldnt even have to do this!
If I have to buy more things from lenovo in the future I will be pleading with God that its not as bad as my first experiance has been.
ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock DVI-D to HP ZR2440w DisplayPort gives no displa
When I connect my USB Dock DVI-D to HP Monitor DisplayPort the monitor says No Signal. This is what I have tried so far:
Installed latest driver from https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd023761Tried with and withouth another monitor connected from the the Dock’s DVI-I output with VGA Adapter to another monitor (Dell)Connected another laptop which has a DisplayPort output to the Monito’s DVI-D Input with the same cableTried two different DocksTried ThinkPad and Microsoft Surface Pro
Any suggestions what could be wrong?
