Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T440s - Trying To Enable 30-day Standby

Nov 16, 2013

New T440s doesn't seem to be entering 30-day standby mode.
I did upgrade the RAM and SSD after purchase.  RAM is now 12GB and SSD was cloned directly from the factory drive.  In Disk Manager, I do see a 12GB partition that I presume is the sleep partition?  Computer is running Windows 8.1, all updates applied, as far as I can tell everything relevant is up to date.  Power Manager is not installed (not installed from the factory).  Rapid Start is enabled in the BIOS and set to 1 Minute for testing.
I did find that in the Windows power plan selected from the factory that Hybrid Sleep was not enabled (nor was Hibernate).  I've enabled Hybrid Sleep.
Still, the computer never enters deep sleep mode.  Nothing connected to the computer and no significant changes made to the configuration other than updating to Windows 8.1 and installing some software.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T440 - Can't Open Top / Lid To Turn It On

Sep 24, 2008

I just got my new laptop today - but I can't open it to turn it on.  My old T61 has a little latch on one side you just flicked and it opened right up.  This has two silver things on the front, but I've tried everything and I can't get it to open.  I've pressed one, both at the same time, pressed hard, pressed lightly.  Been trying to open for over 20 minutes now but it won't budge. 
Will I have to send it back solely because I can't open it?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: No Way To Turn On Mobile Broadband Switch On T420s

Aug 2, 2014

I have a t420s and so far I'm happy with it.Recently I purchased a MC7700 card from ebay with lenovo FRU. Everything looks smooth except that I found there is no way to turn on the mobile broadband switch.i believe I have a whitelist-removed bios otherwise it won't boot. The driver downloaded from lenovo website is installed fine, I can see the card working in device manager. I could read the iccid in windows network settings. Everything looks good, but I just can't turn mobile broadband on.
My laptop runs windows 8.1, I heard there is a thinkvantage connectivity tool that might work for windows 7 but not windows 8. I have quite a few files on my laptop and going back to windows 7 is the last option I would like to try.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: No Display After Installing Win 7 Home Premium On T400

May 4, 2014

Bought a refurb T400 and installed a PNY SSD in it. It POST's okay and I can access bios. I can also read/install Linux from DVD just fine.
Trouble is when I insert my win7 home premium DVD into the drive and boot it, I get POST and then I get a black screen. It seems to be reading the drive and when I interrupt with the Esc key or open the DVD drive, I get a Windows menu explaining that the installation has been interrupted.
I've looked at the bios options and can't see anything obvious that should be changed.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Kingston SSD Not Detected

Dec 28, 2012

I recently got a T440s and wanted to replace the hdd with the SSD from my old laptop, and it is not being detected at boot. It works fine in my e420s.The SSD is a Kingston V+200 240GB. It's a 7mm drive.When I turn on Diagnostic boot in the BIOS I get the following error message:

PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
It seems like their is a problem with the connector? The SSD in the computer can actually wiggle around a little bit (<1mm), it seems like it shouldn't do that.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: How To Handle The Ultrabay

Jul 16, 2008

A key ? for me in purchasing a new machine is how to arrange 2 accessories: DVD player and a 2nd drive (primary drive would be an SSD).
From what I understand, I cannot swap out a HDD and DVD in the ultrabay--if going with a second HDD, the HDD is permanently installed. This implies that you make the pre purchase decision to either have a HDD or DVD player connected by USB and the other in the ultrabay.
Would one opt to have the HDD in the ultrabay due to increased data throughput vs. a USB 3x port?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T440 F1 Key Clicking

May 30, 2014

I just opened my laptop today, and when I used F1 to unmute, it 'clicked' a sort of odd, plasticky click. I hit it again a few times, and it always clicked. So I took the key off to check. I didn't see anything wrong, no broken plastic. After taking it off and putting it back on a few times, it now only clicks when I apply pressure in the top left area of the key.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: How To Add Camera To T530

Oct 1, 2014

I have just bought a T530 for my sister, which is due to arrive soon, but on closer viewing, I realise that it doesn't actually have a webcam. Looking at the pictures of the T530, it seems that the bezel doesn't have the necessary hole for the webcam to see out of. It looks like the space is completely filled in. Are all T530 front bezels the same? Is it possible that it is just some kind of blanking plate in the space where the webcam is behind, which can be removed?

I have been searching online but to no avail. I am not sure if I need to buy a whole new bezel for the T530 + a 720p camera (part number: 04W1364?)+ a viewing window to go in the bezel?

Here is the ebay listing of the T530 I have bought: [URL] .....

and here are the parts I am thinking of buying... do I need to buy a new T530 bezel as well? [URL] .....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: HDD Failure Indicated On T430

Nov 26, 2012

I'm an owner of T430. I have toshiba hitachi 500gb and mini ssd 16gb running windows 7

Right now as I was working on an assignment i got a Microsoft Warning that my Hard drive was failing and that i have to run a back up (which I am doing right now)

Never had this problem and I've been using computer for awhile now and it's my first time seeing the warning window. Is there a way to see if this is a "real" problem? is it caused by viruses? and is it covered by my warranty?
I just ran lenovo solution center hard ware scan and passed everything except my mini ssd. with a code WHD00D001-UI4W8F.

So it seems like my hard drive is working fine, I had some problems with hardware scan failing my mini ssd before.
