Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E530 Unable To Change BIOS Settings After Installing Win8.1 And Enabling Bitlocker

Aug 6, 2014

I'm using a lenovo thinkpad edge e530.

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.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: 130 - Can't Enter BIOS

Nov 20, 2012

I just bought an Edge 130 and wanted to set it up today. But I just can't enter the BIOS! I keep pressing F1 during the Lenovo splash screen. I've pressed it repeatedly, held it down, I even tried it with the Fn button pressed. Nothing worked.
I've have been working with and professionally supporting Lenovo (and before IBM) notebooks for over 10 years and not once did I have such a problem. This is only the second E-series notebook I have ever had. I bought myself an E525 last summer and had no such problems and at work we have T-, X- and W-series.

Lenovo E530 11e E/Edge :: Thinklight Icon Won't Go Away

Jan 15, 2015

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.

Lenovo 11e E530 E/Edge :: Installed New Ssd - Can't Get It To Boot

Jul 10, 2013

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
ATA HDD2: SanDisk SSD U100 16 gb
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?

Lenovo E530 11e E/Edge :: What Is Express Cache Supposed To Do

Sep 19, 2013

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.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E530 Battery Drains 5% Per Day After Powered Off

Jul 2, 2012

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?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E530 Change Display Panel As Resolution Is Too Low

Mar 4, 2013

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 already had a look in the BIOS if the Camera is enabled (it is) and reinstalled the driver of the camera.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E530 - No Dedicated Indicator On Caps Lock Key

Feb 3, 2011

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?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E530 - Keyboard And Touchpad Stopped Responding

Feb 23, 2013

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).

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E530 - ExpressCache Broken After Update Hard Disk Protection

Jul 25, 2012

I have a brand new E530 with 16 GB SSD. Product Code: 3259A29.
I installed the ExpressCache with the installer at C:SWTOOLSAPPSExpressCache. All went well and the machine ran faster, for a day.
Now I updated the Harddisk Protection, as recommended by the ThinkVantage System Update to Version
Since this I get an error message at boot time: "2102: Detection Error on HDD2 (Mini SATA). Press ESC to continue." After ESC the machine boots.
But ExpressCache is not working any more. At the command line the command eccmd.exe -info says "**ERROR** ECCmd Requested device is not available : 2."
I suppose, that the update of HD-protection ruined the ExpressCache - cache.
How can I fix ExxpressCache? To any options of eccmd.exe it returns the above error message.

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.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: ThinkPad E430 Keyboard Acts Like Enter Key Is Continuously Pressed

Jul 15, 2014

I own a Thinkpad E430(type 3254). It's about 14 months old. Yesterday, it randomly started having an issue with it's keyboard. It acts like the enter key is continuously pressed, and about 1 sec after I hit any other key it stops. The enter key by itself has stopped working, and only shorts sometimes and results in a continuous press.
As soon as i boot, enter input is given and normal startup gets interrupted. If i press any key, it's normal again until an OS loads. For example, if i boot into debian, line breaks get inserted between the console messages that are displayed until i press a key, and if i boot windows, it gets stuck at the login screen because enter is given without the correct password so it loops. This behavior also happens sometimes randomly while working normally.
The keyboard hasn't even seen heavy usage, or any drink spills. I usually keep the laptop at my desk, and use an external keyboard. The last time I took it out was 2 weeks ago. I doubt it can be a software issue, so do I need a new keyboard?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z580 With Windows 7 - Can't Enter BIOS

Jul 4, 2012

My machine is Lenovo Z580 with Windows 7. Some time ago I accidentally installed Linux Mint on my whole HDD, so all the partitions and files (including recovery partition) were erased. I then installed back Windows 7 and partitioned the HDD.

However, since the incident, I'm unable to enter BIOS. I'd like to change boot sequence, because the laptop wants to boot from network, displays an error, and then boots from HDD and Windows 7 starts. I can access boot manager with F12 during boot, and the entries are (those aren't the exact names of course, except the first one):
1. ubuntu <- yes, that's how it's called. I guess it's a remnant of Linux Mint installation
2. booting from network
3. booting from HDD
4. booting from DVD
5. booting from USB
I tried the following things:
1. pressing F2 at boot. it used to work before the incident, now the laptop ignores it and proceeds to attempting boot from network, displays an error, and then boots from HDD.
2. using Novo button instead of power button, then choosing "BIOS setup" option - the laptop still proceeds to boot OR displays black screen and need to be shut down
3. removing boot entries using Ubuntu via USB stick [URL] ..... - I can't remove any entry, because after using
>efibootmgr -v
no list appears, and when I enter
>efibootmgr -B -b 001
or any other number, I get an error that the entry wasn't found.
I can't flash BIOS because Lenovo didn't provide the necessary file for this model. I also can't sent the laptop to repair because my warranty period ended two months ago.
So, I flashed the file attached here: [URL] .... and everything works now! the "ubuntu" entry has been automatically deleted and I was able to access BIOS and change the boot order.
Before installing ... write down MAC address of your LAN card, because it'll get deleted after BIOS update!

1. press windows key+R, type cmd and press Enter.....
2. in the opened command window, type ipconfig /all and press Enter, find the entry regarding your Ethernet connection and write down the physical address....
3. Flash BIOS update
4. After reboot follow this guide: [URL] .....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Cannot Enter BIOS Of ThinkPad T530

Sep 12, 2012

I am unable to enter the BIOS (or the boot device and application menu) of my T530. When I press Enter at the 'Press Enter to interrupt normal startup' prompt, nothing happens. It just ignores my input completely. F1 doesn't do anything either.
Otherwise my ThinkPad is working fine, but I would like to change some settings (especially change the boot device, to boot from USB).

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E540 - Can Disable Discrete Gpu (Optimus) From BIOS?

Jul 15, 2014

I'm thinking of buying a Thinkpad E540 with a discrete nvidia gpu. I am planning to install linux on it and I don't really need optimus for it (nor is it well supported) but I'd like to occasionally be able to use it on windows.
I'd like to know if it's possible to completely turn off the nvidia gpu from the BIOS so it works only with the integrated intel one or should I buy one with intel gpu only.
I have read that the lenovo changed the dual gpu implementation on the latest generation thinkpads.
