Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410s HDD LED Is Still Lighting As Charger Is In

Oct 14, 2008

I've bought Lenovo T410s in pretty bad shape. I decided to refubish the one, because I've some spare parts from T400s. So I disassembled the laptop, cleaned the one and assembled it back. Because the LCD screen was defected, I changed the whole LCD assembly (I put the whole one from T400s), changing only the LCD front bezel (but the only difference between the bezzel is the model inscription on it).

I installed the system back. After finishing the instalation of the system with all drivers update, I noticed that the HDD LED in the front LCD panel (that one under LCD) is still lighting as the AC charger is in. When I take it out, it stops lighting.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410s Webcam Not Working?

Jun 24, 2010

My webcam has been working fine with all programs (skype, aim, websites, etc) until yesterday.  Now, it just shows a black sceen and when I try to access it on websites I get error messages saying the webcam can not be found.  When I look under my devices, it says the webcam is installed and my drivers are up to date.  I tried reinstalling the drivers but that didn't work.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410s Active Protection System On Ubuntu

Jul 18, 2013

On my Windows 7, APS works well with an icon on the system tray. But in Ubuntu (13.04), because of no driver, I dont know if APS works or not. The question is: does it still work silently without the driver on Ubuntu?If APS doesn't work, is my laptop harmed when it's shaken? Does Lenovo have any solution to get ASP worked on Linux (Ubuntu)?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410s Recovery Windows 7 Failed To Start After System Installation

Oct 14, 2008

I've got a problem with the laptop Lenovo T410s. I've put the new HDD on it (tried even the same with a different HDD too), and started to instal WIN 7 64-bit from the recovery disks. I used to do it many times so far with different Lenovo laptops without any problems. But this time, a while before the end of the instalation (when processing the sdrivebackup.wim) it stops and comes with a statement: " the recovery process has been finished, please ...." (but I see that the progres bar is far awayfrom 100%) , and finishes the instalation, reboot the computer and it comes the screen with the statement from the Windows Boot Manager:

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem (...)
 
File: Windowssystem32winload.exe
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: The selected entrycould not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt"
 
I read a lot about the ways to solve similar problems, but they don't work on my case. The strange thing is, that I can instal WIN 8 or WIN7 from regular Windows instalation disks  (not from Lenovo recovery, but from normal universal Windows instalation disks).

As I told before, I tried it in 2 different HDD disks with the same effect. It looks that the recovery instalation stops before the end without instaling some files which are missing later during starting the system.

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.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Very Dark Screen?

Oct 13, 2013

T400 -  ONE                          
 
  I have a problem with two T400 thinkpads. The first  T400 was dead when I bought it ( suspected graphics card ) . Well I managed to get this laptop to boot up. The screen was black but I found by chance that if shine a lamp or light on the screen it is working.  Now being able to see what I was dooing on the screen faintly. So I updated the bios & that did not fix the problem but I was well happy about finding out this trick. I then added 8Gb kingston ram which works with my other T400 laptops. I installed Win 7 ultimate.  The laptop is working fine. No issues  just extreamley dark screen almost black "but working"  Very strange indeed.
 
T400 - TWO    
 
 Now the second laptop was working fine. But I was swapping the parts with the non working laptop to determine the problem.  Now I have two T400 laptops with a dark almost black screen. But over about a month working on them I am making progress.  I am determind not to give up on these computers. This is not like fixing or repairing a computer. More like rezerecting a computer. I did not intend to spend so much time on these laptops but I have found a common problem that effects a lot of people. I would love to know why a  working laptop when re- assembled gives an almost black screen & still works. Normally I would just buy a new motherboard & bin the defekt one.  What I need is some command codes to try to make the screen brighter. Is this planned obsiletion or just a graphic defekt myth. Because after throwing away more supposidly dead motherboards with a graphic defekt  than I can count. I am starting to think that if I get the brightness back on my computers I will have sloved a major black screen problem. It is not the graphic processor. I have been playing fifa 14 with a lamp shining on the screen. It played fine, not jumpy ,no colour stripes just very dark.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430S No IP During PXE Boot

Oct 23, 2013

We just bought 15 T430S model N1RLPGE/2356LPG. We install all our notebooks with a running DHCP/PXE environment. A formerly ordered notebook, same type, but an older BIOS (Version 2.02) accurately got itself an IP address during PXE boot and startet the installation. The new T430S (all delivered with BIOS version 2.55) don't even get an IP. I already tried updating the BIOS to the newest version 2.56, but this didn't solve the issue. I checked everything at least twice.

MAC address for IP reservation: correct. Swich (Cisco) portfast is enabled: correct. An older notebook with BIOS 2.02, installing smooth and sound.

When I start the BIOS version 2.56 notebook with a Knoppix DVD, I get the assigned IP address. But not during PXE setup. I also checked the available BIOS and PXE options of the notebook/ethernet card. No options that solved this issue.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Upgrading To SSD For OS T430i

Feb 1, 2013

I've read a lot of threads about adding an SSD to a ThinkPad, and now I'm planning to do the same. replace the main HDD (containing the preinstalled OS, and the recovery partition) with the SSD (of course in this case the main HDD goes to an Ultrabay HDD caddy).But I don't see any serious reasons for doing that, except losing the Ultrabay's flexibility.
 
Isn't that much easier to place the SSD in the Ultrabay caddy, which doesn't have any moving parts, so the lack of rubber rails won't matter? Then I simply change the boot order, to boot from SSD.is the my idea (mentioned above) wrong? So OK, I won't have an optical device, but I have an external DVD-rom, so that's not a real problem.

Acer :: Aspireģ 4810 Timeline Vs. Lenovo T410s

Mar 23, 2010

First of all I will admit that I have never used an Acer before (I am a Lenovo/IBM person) and I don't get how this whole brand works. I hope you will be able to help me out. So my notebook is Lenovo 410s and i am very happy with it; now I am helping to buy a notebook for my friend who has similar needs as I and I would recommend her Lenovo again, but hey I just stumbled across Acer and found it interesting. So I'd like to ask a few questions in the hope you will help:

1. Who are the best sellers in the US of Acer computers? It seems to me that Acer, unlike Lenovo, is being sold everywhere and I can't make sense of this mess - i.e. who to buy from.

2. Would be e.g. an Acer 4810 Timeline (or suggest any other type) be able to meet the following:
a) need a quite computer (noise of any kind is especially annoying)
b) need a light computer (carry it everyday ..anything around 4lb should do)
c) need more of a business model: don't do any gaming, only office, web surfing and an occasional video watching
d) need a solid and sturdy build
e) need an integrated webcamp, SD card reader

Now I have to say that Lenovo 410s meets basically all the wishes I've had for a laptop: it's very light (3.8lbs), very fast, fantastic build. The only two issues that I don't like about it: the quality of the screen is subpar and it does get noisy - by that I mean fan activity. But overall i have not seen a more impressive computer than this.
Thus would Acer be able to beat this? What about screen quality? Heat issues? How bad are the speakers? etc. Btw. does Acer offer Solid State Drives with their units?

In sum, can anybody suggest a model that would equal the performance and specifications of Lenovo 410s and make a persuasive argument why to go with Acer and where to possibly buy it? (of course Acer being cheaper is one such argument).
