Apr 18, 2014

How do I go about installing Bluetooth on my X31 2673? I plan on getting a Bluetooth speaker to sync with it. I don't have Bluetooth installed on the X31, I will need to upgrade. Are the Bluetooth parts difficult to find for an older X31 2673? Is it worth the cost? Or should I just buy a identical X31 with Bluetooth?

Lenovo Z510 P/Y/Z Series :: How To Enable Booting From CD / DVD And USB Drives

Sep 16, 2012

I have a brand new z510 notebook, and I need to do a clean install of windows 8.1.  Problem is that I can't seem to boot from CD or USB.  I have entered the bios, and although the DVD rom drive works, and it shown correctly in BIOS, it does NOT allow me to add it to the boot list.  Also, there is an option called 'Boot From USB'  I enable that, and still the USB boot does not show up in the boot list.  The only thing I have in the boot list is the 'Windows Boot Manager' and it lists the name of my drive.  
I thought that maybe secure boot was the issue, but I tried disabling this, and is still doesn't let me do what I want. I just paid $800 for a top of the line laptop, and I can't even boot from a cdrom.  Every computer I have had since the 1980s have allowed me to do just that without trouble.

Lenovo X60 Series ThinkPad :: Set Windows To Only Use Fingerprint Log On?

Dec 8, 2014

I have a x60s (t2400, 2gb ram) as a spare laptop (also just because i really like it).i know there are more models and that the cpu is solderd onto the mainboard. if i want a t7200 cpu, can i then just replace the entire mainboard? or does that later model have diffrent cooling wich my t2400 doesnt have?
secondly i hearred the discussion about 2 or 4gbs of ram. if i insert 4gb ram, then i just get 3 a 3.5 gb? and will an t7200 allow me to have more ram?and last is more an software issue; i use fingerprint to logon to windows 7 (home premium). is there a way i can set windows to only use fingerprint log on? (so you cant select other logon options).

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 Won't Wake Up?

Sep 7, 2014

My new W540 has the latest bios & software updates.  It won't wake up from sleep...or rather the display won't come on.  When I push the power button (pulsing green), it goes to solid green and the fingerprint scanner light turns on, but no screen.  I scan my fingerprint and the scanner light turns off, but still no screen.  The only way to bring it back to life is a long press on the power button and a reboot.
Nothing plugged into any of the ports.  It does this regardless of whether it's plugged in or on battery.

Lenovo X1 Series ThinkPad :: Carbon Will Not Charge

Aug 27, 2013

My X1 is about 18 months old. It was fine until today. The battery was low, so I plugged it in. The little blue light where the power connects illuminated, however the battery indicater in Windows did not change to show "charging", and the battery continued to drain.
Over the next hour or so I tried many things like shutting down, waiting, new A/C outlet, new power settings, etc. Tried the little reset hole on the bottom of the laptop. Nothing mattered... the little blue light is on, but the battery just drains.
Eventually, the battery drained and the X1 shut down. When I try to boot, I get a pre-boot message about a critical low power error, even plugged in, so my laptop is now a brick.This is a 3448-34U Thinkpad Carbon X1.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 - Can't Boot From USB

Dec 3, 2014

I am trying to do a clean install on my good, old Thinkpad X230 which came with 64-bit Windows 7 Professional. For some reason, I was not able to create a bootable media from the recovery partition. In any case, I wanted to avoid the recovery partition as I want a basic, non-bloated, and minimal install.
Hence, I downloaded a copy of 64-bit Windows 7 Professional from Microsoft/ digital river website. After performing the checksum, I used Microsoft's USB DVD Download Tool to make a bootable USB on Kingston Flash Voyager (USB 2.0; 8 GB; FAT32). BTW, just for the heck of it, I verified  that it boots on my spare (and even older) Thinkpad X60 -- though it doesn't proceed when it sees that the X60 has a 32-bit microprocessor.
The relevant BIOS values and settings are as follows:
UEFI BIOS Version G2ET95WW (2.55)
UEFI BIOS Date 2013-July-09
UEFI Secure Boot Off

[URL] ....

I am posting this query after trying a number of solutions : rebooting from a USB flash drive on my Thinkpad X230. For some reason, nothing has worked and pressing F12 only shows the ATA HDD0 hard drive. Among other things, I have tried the following:
- Updated the Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller driver using Lenovo's Thinkvantage Tools. Now it has version Someone suggested to have at least which is apparently available at Intel's website. I always considered downloading the device drivers from Lenovo to be kosher. Shall I download it from Intel's website?
- Disabled USB 3.0 from BIOS which made all USB ports to act as USB 2.0. Neither option works.
- Tried booting from all three USB ports (of which one is USB 2.0 and two are USB 3.0). Zilch.
- Have yet to try "reset BIOS to default" suggestion as it looked a bit of a last resort.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Booting From USB DVD On X121e

Jul 10, 2014

How to boot from a Lenovo recovery disk for Windows 7 on a USB driven DVD drive? The laptop is currently running Linux so can't run from within the operating system. The BIOS utility doesn't recognise the drive no matter what I select in the boot menu (USB CD, USB FDD or USB HDD) and the F12 boot utility also doesn't recognise the drive. Incidently, F12 does recognise the Linux USB drive so I know this works. The external drive is a Leicke DVD R/RW DVD.
The reason for wanting to boot from the Windows 7 recivery drive is to reinstall Win 7 on a new install, dual boot Linux (Mint), then install iTunes on WIn 7so I can sync my iPhone, and run everything else under Linux. I've tried using a Win emulator under Linux but unsuccessfully.

Lenovo X61 X Series ThinkPad :: Failure After Fan Cleaning?

Jan 15, 2013

I just bought an X61 on ebay and installed Mint Linux, VirtualBox and the Win8.1 preview.
All was going well, except that the heat worried me. The fan was going, but no air seemed to be coming out, so I followed the service manual and dismantled the whole machine. The area between the fan and the heatsink vanes was completely clogged with oily dust and felt, so I cleaned everything, lubricated the fan and re-assembled the machine.
Now it will not turn on. No lights, nothing. I have checked all the internal connectors and all seem fine. I've done this sort of thing often in the past, although not in an X61.
The one problem that I encountered was that the keyboard bezel was glued to the case bottom near the LH hinge and in prising the glue apart, I had to break a small piece out of the bezel at the back, and I have reassembled it with a slightly loose rear part of the bezel.
So, my question is whether there is some sort of tiny switch in the video cable going up to the screen, and does this have to be accurately positioned wrt the bezel? Also, if I try to glue the bezel back together, would epoxy work with the bezel plastic or is there a better glue?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X201 - No OSD With Windows 7 Pro

Aug 1, 2011

I'm having a bit of a strange problem with my Thinkpad X201.
I've been running Windows 7 Pro on it for almost a year without any problems at all, but the SSD I installed developed a fault and had to be replaced. I have the original Win 7 Pro DVD and have installed it from scratch on the new SSD but a few problems have come up.
W7 couldn't find any drivers for the network card or wireless card, and without a network connection it couldn't go online to find any - luckily I was able to download a network card driver via my desktop pc which I then installed on the X201, and when the Windows updates were downloaded and installed, the wireless also started working too.
However, the on-screen displays for the volume, brightness and Caps Lock functions don't work and neither does the Fn-F5 for wireless and Bluetooth.
I spent all of yesterday evening hunting various forums and downloading numerous drivers etc, but I still can't get the OSD to work.
I've tried Lenovo's System Update which downloaded some things and have also tried using the Intel video drivers etc but am totally lost now as to what to do next.
I know that the OSDs do work as they were all working perfectly on the original W7 install, I just don't know what the problem is now with this clean install.
