Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Multiple Monitors With HD4000

Nov 13, 2012

I know that the T430 equiped with nVidia graphics is capable of supporting more than 2 monitors.
What about T430 equipped with the HD4000 graphics Card, using the MiniDock Series 3?
I have connected three monitors (Dock-DVI, Dock-VGA, ThinkPad-MiniDisplayPort) but, so far, I can extend my desktop over two of these three monitors only.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Dual Monitors On T430 - No Signal

Dec 19, 2014

I know the Intel 4000 video can only handle dual video, but is there any way have both those streams on external monitors.  I have one that is extended and I would like to use another port to simply passthrough the interal display signal.  I am using the series 3 miniport plus which has two digital/dvi ports and a vga out.  In connecting to the second digital or the vga I get no signal.  Likewise with the side VGA on the PC.  I wouldn't even mind if the laptop display stayed lit as long as I could see it duplicated on a real monitor AND KEEP MY EXTENDED DESKTOP on another extenal monitor.
Seems like an obvious feature for a docking station.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Dual Monitors On T430 - Docking Station Only Support VGA Connection

Dec 18, 2013

I just received my new t430 and having issue with dual monitors. I am using the Intel HD 4000. I have it connected to a ThinkPad Port Replicator Series 3 (Type 4336). The docking station only support VGA connection. My new t430 only has a VGA connection on the side.

I have 2 monitors. One is connected to the VGA on the docking station. The other is connected to the VGA on the t430 itself.
While the machine is docked, Monitor #1 that is plugged into the docking station works, while Monitor #2 that is plugged into the t430 does not.

While undocked. Monitor #1 does work (obviously because undocked), but then Monitor #2 does work.
So I know both monitors are working and configured for VGA input. My questions is, why can't both work at the same time? While undocked, I can use laptop screen and Monitor #2 as a dual monitor. So I don't believe there is something wrong with the Operating System (Windows 7).
I used to be able to do this on my t420. With one monitor using VGA, and my other monitor using a DisplayPort. But looks like this model my company purchased doesn't support a DisplayPort (at least don't have the connection.)

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T440 Multiple Sleep Mode

Dec 30, 2013

I just bougth the T440 and I have two main problems related to sleep mode, which both seems to happend randomly.The most common problem is that when I close the lid (the action suppose to activate sleep mode), the computer seems to freeze during the time it is going to sleep : The red light is still on as when the computer is in 'normal mode', but there is no display and the keyboard seems unresponsive. I have no choice but to restart the computer.
Sometimes the computer seems to enter in sleep mode correctly (the red light slowly goes on and off, which according to the manual indicates that the computer is in sleep mode), but when I open the lid, the screen remains black and I can see nothing but the mouse. I have no choice but to restart the computer.
It also happened once that the above problem (the second one) kept occuring even after multiple restart of the computer. The only way I could solve it was by using 'windows safe mode'. As the problems occur randomly, I am unable to say if they were already there when I received the computer, or if they started to happen after the few windows updates/software installation I did.

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 :: T430 Heating While In Sleeping?

Sep 17, 2013

bought my T430 this week.
after installing every software i will need on my notebook, i closed it (sleeping) and put it in my backpack. i only needed it again after 2 days. when i touched the bag it was already hot in the outside, i opened it, and my Lenovo was burning... i turned my computer on, the battery went down to 13% from 100% (2 days ago), as it was sleeping, i would have suggested it uses roughly 10-15% in 2 days. 
my questions are:
1. is the heating thing normal while sleeping? what could have caused the problem?
2. is it possible that some parts of the computer got damaged in such a hot atmosphere? (note that i kept it in a closed bag)
possible solution to question 1: i ran a command prompts, typed in the code that tells me what is allowed to wake my computer. noticed the external Logitec mouse and that Intel giganet networks were allowed, so i disabled both. it was probably the mouse as it was in the same bag, i guess it was moving in the bag and waking the computer?

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: VT Options Not Available In BIOS

Aug 21, 2013

I have a T430 (2342-CTO) with an i7-3520M processor that I purchased at the beginning of 2013, and I loaded Virtualbox along with an appliance. When I ran the appliance, it gave me an error something to the effect that virtualization is unavailable on my machine.I went into the BIOS and found the settings for dynamic frequency and hyperthreading for the CPU, but I didn't see any entry for virtualization - where to look or what to do to enable this feature?

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Defrag HDD Between SSD Upgrading?

Jul 1, 2014

I am in the process of changing from a Crucial 256GB M4 SATA SSD to a Crucial 240GB M500 SSD. (I'm unable to upgrade the M4 firmware as laptop has UEFI BIOS). I have imaged the M4 to an HDD and find that the C: partition is 12% defragmented and the recovery partition Q: is 99% defragmented. I have a Lenovo T430s laptop running Windows 7 Professional. Should I defrag both partitions before installing the new SSD, or not bother? Also the Q partition had only 2GB free on the M4. Should I increase this when I change to the M500?

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Fn+F5 Combo Not Working?

Jan 10, 2013

I've been having this weird problem where my Fn+F5 combination (which toggles wireless on and off) has stopped working. I recently uninstalled, and then reinstalled, the lenovo driver for power management in windows 8 64, because I was having the same problem with putting the computer into sleep mode via Fn+F4 (I think by reinstalling the driver, it fixed the sleep mode problem but screwed up my "toggle wireless" ability via keyboard). If the power management driver was potentially the culprit for these two problems, and I reinstall it once again....

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Cannot Install Windows 8.1

Mar 20, 2013

I cannot install Windows 8.1. I have a T430. I go into the app store, start installing 8.1, it downloads, starts installing, and fails just after that point -- at 54% -- with the error message 0x80070002. That apparently means "File not found", but the Windows Update logs don't point to which file is not found, only giving:
WARNING: CSerializationHelper:: InitSerialize failed : 0x80070002
Going into Event Viewer gives the equally cryptic "English ESD Bundle Parent" as a possible cause for the failure.
SFC and chkdsk do not report anything out of the ordinary.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Audio Quality Really Low

The sound quality is junk its as if i am listening to a really low quality audio file all the time this is through the headphone jack. I cant find any settings to fix this in the drivers and if i use a 3rd party eq such as in vlc player it just gets worse.
If I turn the master down to 10% and turn up 3rd party volume the signal distorts at 50% signal on the 3rd party hard core.

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Booting From USB Stick?

Oct 6, 2013

I have got a problem with my T430. I'm not able to boot from usb stick. I checked BIOS settings like 1000 times. Approx. 8mo ago I installed an Ubuntu form usb stick, and everything went well. But now, I guess after BIOS update (2.54 or 2.56) it doesn't work any longer. Today I saw on support webpage information about BIOS version 2.57. It has even written that it solves my problem: "Fix an issue where the system fail to boot from USB device by configuration.".

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Dual External Monitors Without A Dock On T440p?

Mar 15, 2009

Is it possible to use two external monitors with my T440p (20AW-A08500) with Intel HD Graphics withou having to buy a dock? I normally use my laptop at home with the lid shut and two monitors attached.
I used to have X1 (still do - now up for sale) and that was happily connected to two monitors via HDMI and via a MiniDP to DVI adaptor.I wrongly assume when I bought the T440p that I would be able to somehow power my existing two monitors from the single MiniDP port.I have seen their is a Lenovo DisplayPort to DualDisplayPort adaptor - but this talks about ThinkCentre usage - no mention of Thinkpads. Plus the price of this adaptor is pretty steep.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Sound Failing Intermittently

Feb 11, 2014

The sound is failing intermittently on my T430.
Closing then opening the lid to enter and return from hibernation sometimes restores sound. When this does not work restarting the machine usually restores sound. But the sound fails again after an indeterminate period.
Opening Ubuntu Linux in Virtualbox now displays the message "Some audio devices (PCM_in, PCM-mic) could not be opened".

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 - Connecting To TV With VGA Or Display Port

Sep 17, 2013

I have a brand new  TV with USB, RS232, HDMI connections and of course with a screen in16:9 aspect ratio.  I want to use my existing RS232 cable to connect my T430 to the TV and display videos/movies that I want to view with others.  HOWEVER, the video output always gets a black bar top and bottom from the T430 when the TV is connected.  As a result, the image is stretched side-to-side both on the TV and on the T430 simultaneously showing the video.  It is ugly.  If I watch a movie in the very wide movie format 2.35:1, the bars are of course even larger and the movie is simply unwatchable it's so thin, top-to-bottom.

This is true regardless of the video source on the T430, either a movie via VLC or MediaPlayer off the hard drive, or streaming.

Two odd things:  it does not happen if I play a movie on the TV directly from a USB key - it has a USB port and that works just fine.  Also, if I simply unplug the RS232 from the TV then everything gets restored and the image on the T430 is perfect without any bars top and bottom. 

In summary, a 16:9 video source connected to a 16:9 TV via RS232 is given black bars top and bottom, and there is no control on the TV that can correct this (TV has two settings for RS232 display, 4:3 and 16:9.  4:3 actually displays the 16:9 ratio correctly, but with a large black frame around it.  And 16:9, the "auto" setting, gives the problem above).

So I have two questions:

1.  Is there a setting on the T430 that I can adjust to resolve this issue so that the black bars are suppressed for 16:9 video replay?

2.  If I switch to using the more expensive T430 minidisplay output (via an HDMI adapter) and connect that way, is it likely to fix this issue?  I don't want to go to the expense of the adapter and HDMI cable if it will give essentially the same result.

This only applies to videos.  That is, when I close down the video, the 16:9 desktop that shows on the TV is identical to that on the T430 and aspect ratio is not squished on either display.

So it's something to do with how the machine sends out the video streams via RS232 that's screwed up somehow.

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Fan Always Above 3800rpm (noisy) With Psu Connected

Aug 5, 2013

After using for about 12 months my Lenovo T430 2349-GRS without problems, the fan started working loudly all the time I have turned on the PC (all working day from Monday to Friday, T430 connected to the powersupply/charger).
I used the tool HWINFO64 to monitor the temperature and fan speed and realized that the motherboard temperature is working continuously all day above 65°C, and the fan speed is above 3800rpm, so it becomes very noisy.
Then I realized that if I unplug the power supply from the T430, in a few seconds the noise goes, and the computer become silent again.
Below is the image with HWINFO64 log results, in green you will see the T430 with the power supply UNPLUGGED, and in yellow when I connected the power supply.
In the last column of the image, you will see the fan speed in RPMs.

Is there any way to solve this? The fan is very noise above 3800rpm.

Lenovo T430 T400 / T500 :: Audio Over Display Port?

Feb 3, 2014

 I wanted to go today and get an adapter for my Lenovo Thinkpad T430 and first I thought I should do some research. This is how I found out that most of the Thinkpads do not send audio over DP, as I would have expected.
 I have the T430 (no discrete graphics, just the integrated one) and Mini Dock Series 3 with USB 3.0 (EU1) docking station. The laptop has mini-DP and the docking has a normal DP. The normal DP works fine  with my monitor, but it doesn't have any speakers in it , so can't test the audio part.
 I checked in Audio properties in Windows (7 x64) and I don't see the video card there, so I am assuming it is not supported. I don't want to buy adapters if the laptop is unable to send audio over a DP-> HDMI adapter.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Being Very Slow After Sleep Mode

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T510 Dual Monitors No Longer Working Properly

Feb 6, 2009

I have a T510 running Win7 64-bit.  For at least 3 years, I have had the same dual monitor setup (2 DoubleSight DS-1900S) running off my minidock with the laptop closed.  The rgith monitor is the primary, running off the DVI port, while the left uses the analog port.  I was away for a week at Scout camp, powered on the system once while I was there, and when I came back to the office, my monitor setup started failing. 
Specifically, the right screen is active but it no longer displays the signal being sent to it.  When I powercycle the screen, I can see the display for about a quarter of a second, then it goes blank.  When the problem first started, I could cycle it about 20 times and eventually it would stay on, until I left the unit overnight and it went to sleep, at which point the probelm started again.
Sounds like a wonky monitor?  I have a backup set of monitors that I swapped in, and had the same exact problem, so that appears to rule out a mechanical defect.  More fun facts: I can only use the laptop screen as a standalone display.  I cannot get the multidisplay control panel to open, even though my left screen is powered up.  However, one of my programs that normally launches to my right (main) screen will still launch, but not to my laptop screen.  It really wants to live on my right screen, even when that screen is not powered on (I can close the program by accessing the icon bar at the bottom of my laptop screen).

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430 Slow To Shutdown (Takes 10minutes)

Oct 15, 2013

I have multiple T430's at my company that are slow to shutdown. It takes approximately 10 minutes to shutdown. It is also consistant, as soon as you login and shut down it will take that long. These are all installed using an image. Running windows 7 64 bit. Looked in event log, but no indication of abnormal errors. Using Kaspersky, Office 2010, Mozy. Checked some registery settings on microsofts website but that didn't fix the issue either. Not sure if this is a lenovo problem, or a windows problem or a conflict with other software.
