Tip & How-To about Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 Laptop Computer

Do not update Lenovo E430 bios to V2.54

Updating Lenovo Edge E430 could destroy your motherboard and cost you $450. Latest bios update is V2.54 and will update but leave you with a non bootable computer with no access to setup. Do not ever remove the power cord, battery, and bios backup coin cell battery at the same time. Result is Instant destruction of your system board. Update of bios up to V1.18 is okay but I would not activate the UEFI bios. Read all update directions carefully to understand procedure. Windows 7 and Windows 8 have different procedures.

how to re-enable dual-core working on a lenovo a55(pentium d) when it is disabled

There are two possibilities: one is the factory installed a single core CPU and thus set the BIOS to correspond to this, and two is that you might be able to update the BIOS using BIOS update from Lenovo; make sure that the update states that it will take care of the single to dual-core cpu discrepancy. Please be aware that updating BIOS can be a very tricky procedure. If correctly done, everything works fine; if not, you can easily have a non-working motherboard.
