Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Disable Touchpad On W530

Sep 20, 2012

Is there the ability to disable the touchpad on the W530? I don't see it as an option in the function keys. I am using a mouse and it's a bit annoying brushing my hand against it and having it mess something up.

Lenovo W530 ThinkPad W Series :: Do Not Have Any Key On Keyboard To Disable Num Lock

Mar 18, 2014

All,  I am having a major problem with VMWare and the W530 "Num Lock".  When I move the cursor into the VMWare window a message comes on say "NUM LOCK: ON" when I move it out of the VMWare window I see message "NUM LOCK: OFF".  I do not have any key on the keyboard to disable Num Lock.  There are utilities I can run in the SUSE VMWare image to capture the key binding and remap, but I do not have anyway of turning Num Lock on or off to capture the key binding.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - Smart Palmcheck On Touchpad Buttons

Mar 6, 2013

I'm using a W530 with the following configuration :
Windows 8.1 x64
Synaptics driver
My problem is that even though I set the PalmCheck settings to minimum, I have a delay before I can use the left button under the touchpad. The PalmCheck seems to work only on the touchpad functionnalities, not on the buttons below.
How to use those left/right physical buttons below the touchpad while hitting keys on the keyboard ?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 UltraNav Settings Dialog For Touchpad And Stickpoint?

Aug 2, 2008

When I've got my ThinkPad w530, there was (as usually at every ThinkPad laptop) UltaNav enhanced setting dialog (if I remember correctly, these settings resided at the last tab of OS mouse settings dialog - Control Panel -> Mouse). I have spent a lot of time to configure touchpad according to my needs.
But than I've updated my Windows 7 x64, as Microsoft recommended, and installed some hardware drivers and user applications... And at some moment I've suddenly discovered, that the touchpad and the stickpoint do not work anymore the way I've configured them. Yes, they work, but in the most basic default mode.
Furthermore, when I tried to look at the configuration dialog I had used before to configure them, I found, that this settings dialog is totally gone.
Now my Windows Control Panel mouse setting menu looks as the following screenshot: [URL] ....
Is there any way to restore (re-activate) manually Lenovo UltraNav settings dialog for the touchpad and the stickpoint?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Completely Disable Touchpad And Trackpoint On X1 Carbon

Jul 31, 2014

Is there any way to completely disable the touchpad and trackpoint on the X1 Carbon without going into bios?
I am able to disable touchpad OR trackpoint by going into mouse properties in control panel but it won't let me do both.  I would like to turn it back on relatively easily if possible.
I am trying to do this on a work computer and I have no administrative rights and I am using Windows 7 Professional.
Can this be done or did Lenovo completely overlook such a simple feature?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Will Not Reset Widows 8

Oct 21, 2013

Windows 8 came with this machine, and I have had performance issues for a month now. I have just soldered on till yesterday when I kept getting different blue screens and needing to restart...now it won't restart, and so I did the press enter to get to the troubleshooting area of the hard drive....selected the quick reset option, which failed, so I came back and selected the complete reset and it gets to about 65% and stops says there was an error and requiring a restart...this happened twice...now when it restart, it is trying to do a reset again...without me asking it to.

Is this normal? Normally I physically break a computer, and never get to the point where a reset is needed...so I am truly at a loss here.

It is a W530 and has 16GB of RAM. All I run/ran on it photoshop and Lightroom, Firefox, audacity, Roxio, Avast for virus protection, an online backup service, and a program called star stacker.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Randomly Powers Off

Oct 23, 2012

I have had the W530 for several months now and it randomly powers off.  This can occur when connected to the AC Adaptor, when running on battery, or when using the AC Adaptor without battery.  Lenovo first replaced a fan, but that didn't solve.  Now they are attempting to replace the system board.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Gap At Top Of W530 Keyboard After Installing RAM?

Feb 28, 2013

I installed some Corsair Ram in slot 1 and 2 underneath the keyboard and after reinstalling the keyboard Ive noticed theres a gap at the top of the keyboard where it slots into the computer the whole way across specifically in the middle where theres alot of flex. The plastic which has the power and volume buttons seems to move around when pressed. This seems to be letting in dust and would especially allow a spill to enter the machine. This doesn't seem normal for a well built machine and have I installed the keyboard wrong?

Lenovo W530 ThinkPad W Series :: Cannot Power Up Unit

Aug 9, 2014

I have a W530 (2436 CTO) ThinkPad purchased 11/10/13. It will not power up.While in use the screen went black, then the unit tried to reboot. Just as Windows began to initiate, the screen went black again. It immediatly tried to restart about three times in quick succession, about 3 seconds long each time.  It was powered with the AC adapter at the time with the battery in place. I have tried all combinations with or without the battery or AC. In either mode, the power button lights up for approximately 1-2 seconds, then goes black. I have tried holding in the power button for 30 seconds.  Nothing, other than about a 2 second light, then dead. 
I have never received any power warning messages, low battery warning or the like.  The only unusual behavior I've ever had is about half a dozen times I've had to do a hard power down.  But not recently.I have tried the removing and replacing the SSD. I have removed and switched the two memory boards to test for a bad board or bad connector.   None of these have solved the problem. I’m guessing the SSD failed, or perhaps a bad BIOS chip.  I can easily replace the SSD, but 9 months of moderate use seems like a short lifespan for even an SSD.  I can't update the BIOS (if that's the issue) because I can't get the unit powered up.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - Creating Recovery Media?

Mar 1, 2014

I recently acquired a new Thinkpad W530 with Windows 7 Pro.
I want to immediately replace the 500gb main drive with a larger one.  I plan to do this by imaging the system partition of the current drive to an external USB hdd, and then then writing the image to the larger one after it's installed in the W530.
My question:  Can I then just store the original drive away as is, to use for recovery (should the need arise), in lieu of creating recovery media now?
It seems pretty clear the answer should be "yes," but since I've always used XP up until now I'm wondering if there are any kinds of Win 7-specific watchouts (maybe licensing-rleated?) that would keep things from being as simple as popping the original drive back in the main hdd slot to get things back to exactly where they are today?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Cannot Record Streaming Audio On W530

Feb 1, 2013

Similar to a post about the T530 I used to record streaming audio (internet radio, youtube, playback etc.) with Snagit on my old computer, now on new W530 I cannot find "line out, mono out, wave out," devices to record from, only "microphone". 

On the Lenovo W530 using Windows 8 Pro I followed the follwoing steps posted elsewhere for the T530:
Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Recording ... right-click to check Show Disabled Devices, then choose Stereo Mix as Default (may also want to right-click on Stereo Mix and double-check Properties: make sure Listen level is not at zero) 
After showing disabled devices on the sound > recording tab the tab still shows only one device, the "Microphone". 
If it is possible how on  Windows 8 or the W530 (and possibly other models) do we get the line out / mix out / mono out / whatever they call it for the sound that comes out of the computer?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Maximum SSD Storage Supported On W530

Jan 19, 2013

I have been told by sales that the W530 will NOT support SSD's larger than 256GB. I wonder if it is sales gimmick since the SSD uses the SATA3 interface that works with standard drives > 256GB. But before I go on a limb and buy a big SSD, I need to verify if I am wrong.
Using a 480GB or 512GB SSD drive in the W530 thinkpad?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Bluetooth Won't Find Devices

Apr 6, 2014

My W530 suddenly stopped communicating with my MS Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000, and nothing I try will bring it back.  It does not show under Bluetooth devices, and it will not find anything when I search for devices.  I know the mouse is not at issue, as it will readily pair with an Android device.  Yes, the manual wireless switch is turned on.  Yes, it is turned on in the Fn+F5 OSD.  I've done a BIOS update.  I've updated my system using Lenovo System Update.  I've checked power settings both under driver properties, and in my power plans.  Everything seems to be in place, it's just like the Bluetooth has vanished, but the system doesn't know it.  Yes, I'm POSITIVE my system has Bluetooth... I've been using it for the past 6 months or more. 
Recently, I've experienced issues with the mouse losing connection for a few moments at a time, but nothing beyond that.  Then yesterday, It's completely gone, and I can't get it back.

It seems I got the same problem that customers have with the T530. After removing the bios password I have no chance to get into the BIOS.
Bios Version: 1.11 (uefi only enabled)
OS: Windows 8 (x64)
I tried:
- Remove all drives (mSATA SSD, ODD, HDD)
- Press F1 at the Lenovo screen
- Tried all options in the Windows boot menu
- Pressed the Enter key at the Lenovo screen
Unfortunately there don't exist a BIOS update for the W530. So how I get into the BIOS?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - No Bluetooth Services Found

Mar 18, 2014

I have a feeling that I am missing something very obvious here, but I have looked everywhere and cannot find the Bluetooth services on my laptop (W530, Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, ThinkPad 1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter for Windows 7).
When I do FN + F5, I get the Lenovo Wireless Radio menu, but it only lists Airplane Mode (off) and 802.11 Wireless (on).
I have check BIOS security settings for I/O devices and Bluetooth is enabled.  However I cannot find any references to Bluetooth under Device Manager ->Network Adaptors.
Is it possible that this laptop is not equiped with Bluetooth?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Cannot See SSD (Bios Or Windows Installation)

Dec 20, 2013

Basically I am trying to install a new Samsung SSD into a W530, however, I can not get the Bios or Windows instalation to see it (when you select what drive you want to install windows on).
I can externally attach the SSD to my other laptop and see the drive. I can create partitions, format them, etc. But none of that worked my original issue.
I have also updated to the latest BIOS version, tried turning off UEFI, no luck.
What I am missing here to get this SSD to show up?

Lenovo W530 ThinkPad W Series :: Mini DisplayPort To HDMI TV?

Aug 1, 2013

Yesterday I bought a little 22" Vizio VW22L television to use as another monitor for my W530. I'm using this cable: [URL] to connect my computer to the TV. When I connected it at first it worked fine for about 45 minutes then I just got screen noise (short, multicolored vertical bars moving everywhere). Now whenever I try connecting it I get my computer's display on the TV for a couple minutes, then the screen noise again.
I was wondering what the issue is or could be. The cable seems to work fine. I tested it with a Magnavox television and a different Vizio TV. This TV's HDMI port also seems to work fine. I had my brother connect his Samsung Series 3 to it via HDMI and it ran perfectly well. The Lenovo update utility says all my drivers are up to date, as does Windows update.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - Windows 8 And Integrated Camera

Dec 18, 2012

After receiving my w530, I wiped the drive and installed a nice fresh copy of Windows 8 Enterprise (volume licence work copy).
I have installed all the latest drivers, etc. and taken note of the various documents about Windows 8 upgrade/install, but cannot make use of the integrated camera?!
The driver is listed under the device manager:
Imagine Devices -> Integrated Camera (Ricoh - BTW I tried the beta one to see if that worked, and it made no difference to I rolled back to the proper release again.
The docs I have read said NOT to install the Communications Utility, and at this point in time there is not a Windows 8 listed compatible version of that.  I did give it a try when the camera did not work, but although there were no errors, etc. it didn't work either ...
Skype/messenger/windows 8 camera seem to know it's there, but cannot make use of it (I get the placeholder image).
Under Control Panel->Hardware and Sound, there is no appropriate entry for me to toggle/configure.
I see the green light come on, but no picture.  Running latest bios G5ET65WW (2.07).

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 With 64 Bit Windows 7 - Cannot Turn Off Display Scaling

Aug 31, 2008

I use a high resolution monitor; therefore, I use display scaling. But for many programs I prefer to turn it off since the display quality is better. For 32-bit programs there is no problem with this: open program properties, then,  Compatibility => Disable display scaling on high DPI settings. However, when I try to do this for a 64-bit program, I find that the corresponding check box is disabled.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Pantone Color Calibrator Will Not Launch On W530

Jun 4, 2014

I have a ThinkPad W530 with color sensor and Pantone Color Calibrator. It has worked just fine since I got the computer brand-new over a year ago. For the last week or so, my color calibrator has failed to launch when I click on the "ThinkPad Display needs to be re-profiled" notification. I get the spinning icon, but after a few moments it just disappears. I've tried doing a restore, and chosen a time-point before I think this happened. But the system refuses to go back to that restore point because it "can't find a file." What the ????? I have not deleted any files from the system folders, I can only believe that one of my automatic updates has screwed this up. Of course, the message does not tell me what *kind* of file is missing.
I'm attempting a download and re-install of the Pantone Color Calibrator Program

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - 32 GB Of Memory Showing Only 16 GB After BIOS Update

Aug 23, 2014

I recently upgraded my ThinkPad W530 laptop BIOS from version 1.11 (which it shipped with) to the latest, version 2.59.
After doing so, my two 16 GB DIMMS are not only showing up as 8 GB each, thereby cutting my usable memory in half from 32 GB to 16 GB.
I ran through all the normal hardware checks to ensure that one of the DIMMS wasn't bad.  I tried each DIMM separately, tried in different slots, etc.  They both show up just fine and even pass the memory quick test in the BIOS.  Only, they are showing up as 8 GB DIMMs.
Is there a feature in the latest BIOS that would somehow limit this?  It was working fine at 32 GB before.
And, unfortunately, there is no reverting back to BIOS v.1.11 from anything after v.2.55.  It asked me if I was sure I wanted to proceed...this was the last type of problem I expected to see though.  (I also tried reverting back to previous versions of the BIOS that were allowed and it didn't work...
