Lenovo ThinkPad E540: AHCI Driver Update Causes Lockups

Welcome. I also disabled windows update through services.msc - so it doesn't try a sneak update on me. permalinkembedsavegive goldload more comments(8 replies)[–]skddanny 16 points17 points18 points 8 months ago*(16 children)Had the same issue after update, after hours of trials disabling AppXsvc in regedit from safemode resolved the freezing issues.

I have a strong hunch Microsoft have messed around with AHCI. I have an SSD drive, well 3 in a raid 0, and save pretty much everything on a server via mapped drives. permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]Bpsmooth 2 points3 points4 points 8 months ago(0 children)Glad it worked for you! Do this: $ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf - It will open a blank text file. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-11e-Windows-13-E-and/E540-AHCI-driver-update-causes-lockups-power-down/td-p/3367382

I was wondering if Lenovo released all the drivers(32-bit) that i would need properly run Windows 10. On my laptop, due to a bios bug in the Z580s, it takes 30 minutes to boot up using Ubuntu 13.04. EDIT: After moving the application install location in Windows settings back to the system drive, it was a fix for me when I reinstalled the anniversary update.

All things I tried work. For some reason if you have hybrid graphics disabled in the bios then you loose the ability to control backlight brightness on the lcd out of the box. The original battery was replaced two years ago with a high-capacity version. Regards, Mike. :) electriccandyApril 22nd, 2015, 05:18 AMI have a Dell Inspiron i3542 running Ubuntu 14.04.

However, the proprietary broadcom driver 'wl' is installed if you check the box for third-party software during a fresh install. First System froze... I found a fix that dell had released (http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/extras/m/mediagallery/20441258), and installed 4 packages, restarted and all of the issues were resolved! http://greensoftwareyk.cf/lenovo-t410-ahci-driver-windows-xp-1538 Final update and Solved flair will come when the problem is fixed by MS.

I haven't experienced any drops yet the few times I have used it. See HERE.

I'm running a HP Probook 450 G1, 12 GB RAM, 480GB SSD. Only one visible issue is that the USB 3.0 ports all around the laptop have an issue where they may or may not work.

To boot into Windows 8, change it back.

Do not install that, it hung on dpkg and gives your installation a hard time. However, MS had made a huge mistake.

If so what graphics cards are compatibale?

Performance is great. It seemed fine for the first 10 minutes or so, but then it freezed again. Woot has Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11E 11.6" Touchscreen Convertible Ultrabook for $269.99.Shipping fee is $5. This should be considerably improved by a planned 2.6 GHz P4 upgrade in the next fortnight.

I think this is the route we need to be looking at. Bucky BallOctober 16th, 2014, 03:04 AMUbuntu Studio 11.04 LTS 11.04 reached end-of-life over two years ago and you can expect problems. Ran the update and had multi freezes after. his comment is here Everything SHOULD work fine in the "new account", for some reason, my principal account was still messed up, nothing works there.

Windows Apps - dedicated to Windows10 UWP apps. I used EasyBCD to fix that issue....DO NOT USE EASYBCD TO FIX BOOTING OF WINDOWS, It will make it rather hard to get back into Windows (Win 8.1 at least) when The only fix was a hard reset which didnt actually fix anything because it would just lockup after restart. ilja-pelechApril 1st, 2015, 03:49 PM1)Version Of Ubuntu: 14.10.02 2)Laptop Maker: Lenovo 3)Laptop Model: Thinkpad Edge 531 (6885-26G) Working out of the box using UEFI.

Intel i7-MQ4702 Quad-core CPU, 8Gb HYPER-X 1600Mhz RAM, 500Gb HD, 1920x1080 IPS screen. It's a great champ of a machine. I used an askubuntu link, (don't have it now) to install the drivers via LXTerminal and rebooted. General freezings are still present though on some systems.

Will boot with third party drivers but needs the updates version. 2) Brightness controls don't work even with third party drivers. Some sites already picked up the story. After this new cumulative update there are no intermittent freezes on my Crucial_CT240M500SSD. I can report there are no issues, everything working out of the box.

Camera , Optical Drive , Mic, and USB all working.

Hope this helps.
