I have got a 600P 256GB M.2 SSD, but I could not perform firmware update via https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27330%3Fv%3Dt Intel® Solid State Drive Toolbox as an error popped up "Error: The firmware update process encountered an error (10/53)." I rebooted my computer and tried again as per the recommendation following the error, it was still not successful.
So, I downloaded SSD Firmware Update Tool with iso format and loaded it into a bootable USB flash memory. After booting my device with the USB and running it automatically, I could only see a black screen with message "Out of Range" on my monitor. I waited for more than half an hour and did not see any pop-up or message for updating successful, so that I rebooted my PC again.
I confirmed my Win10 64bit system is up-to-date and attached Intel Logs as well. May I know what action should I take then? Thanks.

Sorry for late reply, Eugenio.
I have followed every single step you mentioned previously and created a bootable USB flash memory with configuration detail as photo attached, but it was still not working for me.
Although the USB flash memory could be booted, the monitor showed "out of range" after loading as the video shown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6otOoXpegaE Booting Screen Cap - YouTube.
Could you please advise any action could be taken then? Thanks.

Hi, I've encountered the very same error as this original post stated.
I have the 1024G version of Intel SSD 600p which is currently on firmware version PSF104C.
Using the Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool on a bootable USB flash drive also caused the monitor showing "out of range."
Here's my PC report from Intel SSU. And my monitor model is ASUS PG278Q.
Looking forward to a solution or workaround. Thank you!
Hello Benson.Chan and howshal,
We noticed both of you are using NVIDIA GTX* graphic cards. Just for testing, could you please temporarily uninstall the graphic card and unplug it? By doing, so the system will be forced to use the integrated graphics. This will help us discard a driver conflict issue.
Let us know if the update works on either Intel® SSD Toolbox or Intel® SSD FIrmware Update Tool.
I can confirm that by disabling discrete graphics card in the BIOS and plug the monitor to on-board DP port, I can properly boot into Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool and finally updated my 600p to firmware version PF121C.
Thanks for the help!
I have the exact same problem. SSD Toolbox firmware update results in an error 10/53. SSD Firmware Update Tool will boot, but will only display a blank screen after the initial post screens. The monitor then goes into sleep mode.
Please note that removing the GPU is not an option for me as my computer does not have any onboard graphics. SSU information is attached.
I removed my GTX graphic card from the motherboard and attempted to update the firmware, but I still got the error message "Error: The firmware update process encountered an error (10/53)." on Intel® SSD Toolbox.
Nevertheless, when the graphic card was removed and I booted into Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool with USB flash memory, black screen was shown and all USB devices were disconnected after running the Kernel as the script below.
So, it seems I need the other solution or workaround for updating the firmware. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply.
Could you please take a look at this /thread/120757 workaround and let us know if you are able to update the firmware.
We look forward to hearing back from you.
Hi Junior M., it really works! My 600p SSD is now updated with the firmware version PSF121C!
Thank you very much for sharing the workaround. Have a nice day, Intel Team!
We are glad to hear that you were able to update the firmware of the SSD.
Please let us know if there is something else we can assist you with.
