I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530. Occasionally I will have the following icon pop up on my screen and refuse to go away: A reverse google image search told me this is the logo for the "thinklight", which as far as I know is not actually equipped on this model. As a side note, I have seen this happen on a friend's E530 as well.
I just bought the Thinkpad e530 with the 1tb+16 or so ssd cache harddrive. I decieded i wanted a ssd instead, so I bought a Samsung SSD 840 Series. - but since I removed the old 1tb harddrive and installed the ssd, I cant get it to boot. In bios I changed the boot priority so it looks like this when I get to the boot menu:
ATA HDD0: Samsung SSD 840 Series Windows Boot Manager Windows Boot manager ATAPI CD0: PLDS DVD-RW DS8A8SH ATA HDD2: SanDisk SSD U100 16 gb PCI LAN
When I press enter on the SSD, nothing happens. When i press enter on the DVD, the screen goes black and then back to boot menu (the DVD is a installation for windows 7 of my own. There were any CDs with the lenovo) When I press enter on the first Windows boot manager, screen goes black and then back to boot menu. When I press enter on the second windows boot manager it give the error message with the status: 0xc0000225 (something with newly change of hardware or software). Its the same message when i press on the HDD2.
How can I get it to boot up so i can boot the DVD so I can install windows on my SSD?
I have E530 with 1TB disk and 16GB mSSD disk, which is partioned in 2 partitions. Now, I suspect Express Cache is using it somtimes, but I never see any usage from it in Task Manager. Task Manager Screengrab.However, sometimes Express Cache goes nuts on my HD, doing the opposite of what it is supposed to be doing Resource Monitor Showing Express Cache thrashing my HD
However, it seems to be doing something, sometime. I suspect it is from rebooting, but I rarely reboot my computer, so I'm not gaining much from it. I just formatted that mSATA drive and perhaps put the windows swap file and perhaps other cache folders there? I always feel that the disk I/O is the bottleneck of this computer, it feels slow when accessing the disk.
My E530's battery drains 5% per day after power off. I searched online and somebody else complained about similar issue on his Y-series laptop. His problem was solved by plugging off power cord before turning off the laptop. Lenovo also updated BIOS regarding this issue for his model after then.
Yesterday I tried his way and the issue was gone too. Can Lenovo update BIOS regarding this issue?
I also find the power manage scheme doesn't work. It always charges the battery from 96% to 100% in whatever scheme I chose. I tried to uninstall the driver and downgrade the power manager, still doesn't work. I didn't try reinstall the system because it is too time consuming. Does it matter I installed win7 in my SSD?
I have a Thinkpad E530 which has a 1366x768 display panel. Unfortunately, This resolution began to be low for my usage (some applications don't even enter the screen entirely!), so I'm searching for a higher resolution panel (like 1600x900 or 1920x1080). Could this be made or the new screen wouldn't work?
I've got a brandnew Thinkpad E530 with Windows 8 and integrated Camera. But the Camera is not wotking. When I start the Camera-App, the green Light of the Camera starts to shine, but there is no preview. Theres is only a picture of a crossed camera. Also if i start skype, my skype-partner can't see me.
I already had a look in the BIOS if the Camera is enabled (it is) and reinstalled the driver of the camera.
On they old keyboard, there was a dedicated green indicatory light on the key itself, which is missing on the keyboard. Now, I realize that the new keyboard affects all thinkpads alike, but the reason I'm posting this here is because my Thinkpad Edge (E530) has a dedicated numpad, thereby making me use the numlock much more often
I am aware of the often-suggested windows 7 software-sided fix: screen resolution > advanced settings > on screen display
However, the issue with this is that is that it groups the caps lock and numlock together. What if I want the numlock to be default on and NOT shown on-screen, but still wanted to be reminded on-screen if I [accidentally] have the caps lock on?
Is there a solution to this or is this another problem that Lenovo overlooked when upgrading the keyboard?
I have recently updated the BIOS on my E530 laptop to version 2.08 (the previously installed version was 1.xx, probably 1.37 as far as I remember, but am not sure about the exact version..). After the update the laptop keyboard and touchpad stopped working in Windows.
The keyboard does, however, work in the BIOS and both (keyboard and touchpad) work when the computer enters the Windows-startup-screen (where it suggests to fix hard drive errors etc.).
I am using Windows 8 all along and before I never had problems with my hardware. Now both the keyboard and touchpad are recognized in Window's Device manager, but are known to have troubles. There is also a PCI Device recognized in the category "Other devices", but it's missing any drivers (I wonder if there is a connection..). All those three are recognized as such by the Lenovo Solutions Center as well.
I have tried reinstalling the UltraNav drivers, but it wouldn't work. Also, I've tried finding any possible configuration regarding my problem in the BIOS, but was unsuccessful. If I attach an external mouse or keyboard, they work. I really don't know what else to do to get my laptop's keyboard & touchpad working!
The complete description of my laptop is: ThinkPad Edge E530 (3259-HLG), running Windows 8 (x64).
I have a new Edge 531 just upgraded to Win 8.1. The Lenovo Solution Center gives me a Virus Protection Alert - even though Norton says all is OK. When i click to enable anti-virus in the Solution Center, nothing happens. How do I cancel the message?
I can't found my camera device in device manager and there is no imaging devices in device manager. There is no camera tab in Communication Settings (Fn+F5)...
I tried to install "Integrated Camera Driver (1.0M) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - Notebooks" "Integrated Camera Driver (0.3M) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - Notebooks" but nothing happened ..
In the first time when I installed the windows the camera was working but now it's not !!
My Laptop is : ThinkPad Edge E530 My OS is : Windows 7 32-bot
I have a problem changing my BIOS settings after installing win8.1 and enabling bitlocker. I wanted to reformat the partition it was on, so I wiped it with gparted and now all settings in bios are greyed out and I cannot change anything. What can I do to be able to edit my BIOS?
I also have linux installed on my computer if I could do anything from there.
Since the past couple of days I am receiving this Error 2102: Detection error in HDD2 during every cold/warm boot. It pops up even after a complete powerdown for overnight and boot up the next day. Further, the boot itself has become very slow - shows blank screen until the Thinkpad logo is displayed, followed by which the error message pops up.
I have a 80 GB Sata HDD, on a (virtual ((i still dont have it exactly... ))) 5315 C2D T8300 laptop. and i was wondering if i should upgrade it. What will change exactly, is it worth it, and if yes what kind of HDD should i look for?
I did have 10 updates that failed to install for some reason. The error code for all of these is the same (80240054) but I don't get any results on the MS site for that code.

I don't use IE and it's obviously not a Surface Pro... Why Bluetooth would go away?? My computer also ended up in Airplane Mode for some reason, but I turned that off. On the Network Window under Wireless Devices, Bluetooth shows as Off and is grayed out...
So you can see this is a wee bit over 135 GB. Where in the world is the rest of the space? Here's what I've looked at / done so far:
"System Protection" is turned on and is currently using 10.48 GB. I have the max set at 3% (13.59 GB). There are currently 3 saved restore points. --> EDIT now it says it's using 5.97 GB and there are only two restore points now.I've run "Disk Cleanup" and it says I could regain 33.6 MB. Whoo-whooooo!The disk was 1% fragmented so I ran defrag.I ran the error checking tool on the drive and it said there were no errors on the drive. Now, after finishing the defrag, I've lost more space "as we speak"20.4 GB available of 452 GBApps: 31.4 MBPictures: 76.1 GBVideos: 137 MBMusic: 20.9 GBDocuments: 8.14 GBDownloads: 0 bytesRecycle bin: 0 bytes
FYI: When I go to Lenovo Solution Center and click on Support and then go to Configuration History, the calender there shows the yellow triangle with the exclamation point in it for "System Events" on every single day that I use the laptop. When I click on one of those days, it shows multiple "Application Errors". This has been going on since the day I got it. I don't know if there is a log somewhere that is spiraling out of control.
I forgot to say I use Kaspersky Pure 3.0 for virus software and I have it performing a Full Scan, a Vulnerability scan and a Critical Areas scan every day. I also scanned the drive with Malware Bytes and it did not find any malware. Also I am running Win 8.1 - it came that way from Lenovo.
I received my Y510P monday and the performance has been as expected. But Win 8.1 would often freeze, hang, even on restart and shutdown screen where I had to manually shut it down. I have found that uninstalling expresscache seems to have solved the hangups/freezes... I tried uninstalling, clearing my cache drive, and re-installing with latest expresscache version but still the same problem. Had to uninstall it. Is this a compatibility thing with win 8.1 or a hardware problem? I ran Seatools, and the SSD passes all the test EXCEPT long generic. Although SSDLIFE says that it is in perfect condition and should be good until 2022.
I just purchased a Thinkpad Edge model E531. The shop transferred data from my previous laptop. I am getting an alert message that says I only have1.21G free of 13.67G on my primary drive. Is this a problem, and how can this be the case on a new machine...
I just bought a new T440s at Lenovo online. But when I started my coumpter, I found that all the storage of my hard disk is under C. I want to partition them into C , D ,F and E. I don't want to get the new system mess up.
