Nov 8, 2014

I have S430, bios 2.58 I decided to upgrade my HDD to SSD and install clean Windows on it.
I've downloaded Windows 7 ISO from [URL] ....
Then I have loaded it into Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool
Prepared with that app bootable DVD and flash
First I tryied to install Windows from usb, installer runs and asked me for CDDVD drivers. I sat up USB3.0 to disabled, then in browser window I can see my flash, but the message about drivers remains..

Also I copyed USB3 driver from [URL] ... to another flash and tryed to give them instead of CD-DVD drivers, but they are shown as "not compatible"
Next i tryied with DVD, but I can't even load installer - DVD begin to roll, but then shows me "choose boot device" dialog. Secure boot is OFF, UEFI tryied both Legacy Only  and UEFI only....

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: S430 - Swapping Out Optical Drive For HDD?

Aug 8, 2012

I just ordered myself an S430 with a 128gb SSD HDD included. I didn't see an option to replace the optical drive with a secondary HDD (e.g. a 500gb) so have the optical drive in as standard. Now, I would have rather changed this out for a secondary HDD or for a Blu-Ray drive, thinking I could do this myself once bought...Looking at other posts it looks like you can swap out the optical drive for a Blu-Ray drive, although I would preferably get a secondary drive over the Blu-Ray, but I'm hesitant over a few things:
Is this possible to do myself (swapping out for either secondary HDD or blu-ray drive) without voiding the warranty? (I got it with 2 year warranty). Is it actually possible to do at all? (swapping out for a secondary HDD)....

Lenovo S440 ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Install Windows 8 From Recovery Disc In Virtualbox Hangs On Splash Screen

May 13, 2014

when I try to install the Windows 8 copy I got with my Lenovo S440 in a virtual box environment

the installation procedure hangs on the windows splash screen. I never saw a Windows 8 installation

procedure before, so I booted my laptop from the installation media to check if it is corrupted.

This works fine. A loading dot circle is displayed under the logo after a few seconds and than after quiet

a while the lenovo wizard is shown... so it has to be an issue with the virtual box. 

I attached a screenshot to show you where it hangs.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: S230 / Windows 8 - No Battery Is Detected

Apr 26, 2013

The battery icon in Windows 8 just started saying "No battery is detected".
The system seems to run fine on the battery.  I tried rebooting, but that did not change anything.
When plugged in, the icon shows that it is plugged in, but still says "No battery is detected".
It does not look like I can remove and replace the battery without taking things apart.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Windows 8.1 - Cursor Jumping And Closing Programs

Jan 28, 2010

I have a brand new Thinkpad Yoga (20CD-CT01WW), running windows 8.1 64-bit, 8g RAM.  Intel Core i7-4600U @ 2.10Ghz / 2.70Ghz

When using any program in desktop mode (first noticed it on Chrome, then Quicken, but really applies to any use), the cursor will randomly jump across the screen, usually to the upper right, and then without clicking, will close the window I'm working on, often losing my work. Sometimes I'll get random right-click menus without clicking the mouse buttons. I am using the track-point primarily, so thinking it might be inadvertent contact with the touchpad, I disabled all touch-pad functionality, but the problem persists.

I ran Norton Internet security, AdAware, and Malwarebytes to look for viruses but didn't find any problems. Just ran Lenovo update, and downloaded the most recent Ultra-Nav Driver.  Now both touch-pad and track-point are using default settings, but the problem still persists.  

I'm wondering if this a hardware or driver problem, or a windows 8.1 problem?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Windows 8.1 Update - S440 Black Screen With Flickering Cursor

Oct 20, 2013

I have an S440. I've had it for one week. Two days ago I downloaded the Windows 8.1 update from the store. Since then, when I start up the computer, it doesn't even taken me to the 'sign in' screen. There's just a black screen. When I move the cursor, it briefly appears, flickers, then disappears again.

I understand this is an issue with the graphics drivers. So I ran Windows in safemode and disabled Intel R HD Graphics family and AMD Radeon HD  8600 series graphics drivers.

This, unfortunately, hasn't fixed the problem. It still boots to a black screen with an occasionally flickering cursor. I'm currently running in safemode.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Install Windows 8 From USB On X1 Carbon

Sep 25, 2014

I am trying to install windows 8 from the 3 disks that came with the X1 Carbon. There is no DVD drive and we have no external disk drive, so I need to create a bootable USB for this. The laptop came with windows 7 on it.
It is easy to use DISKPART to ready the USB as a bootable device, but how to I take the data from the 3 DVDs and put it onto the USB so that it works? The first one only has drivers but the OS install is split onto two disks. I referred to a KB article but it was talking about autorun files that are not present on these DVDs.
The DVDs I have are labeled as

(1) Applications and Drivers Recovery Disk,
(2) OS Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro [Disk 1 of 2], and (2) OS Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro [Disk 2 of 2].

Lenovo X220 X Series ThinkPad :: Microphone Quite After Fresh Windows 8 Install?

Mar 30, 2013

I just did a system restore of windows 8 (clean wipe) and went through the process of reinstalling all the drivers.  I installed the latest version SmartAudio (  In Google hang out it said the microphone wasn't working, then I clicked on the settings and made the internal mic the default, I got good mic for 1 second.  Did it again and the same thing.  But this is only for a single second.  In skype I tried the same thing and it is just super quite, it doesn't register on the scale unless I blow directly into the mic (so I know it's picking something up).  Last week I had my upgraded from win 7 Windows 8 install working just fine with the microphone (zero problems ever before with this thing).  I checked in mic properties and DB and volume are set to max. So what is it about the fresh install that is making the mic all cracked out? (I checked the SmartAudio settings too) I'm having issues with my Bluetooth mouse too(disconnects at restart and have to reinstall) and Power Manager (it doesn't show up as a toolbar anymore).  P.S.. I've gone to the X220 site and downloaded the latest drivers and installed system update.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Shift Key Not Working On It

Jan 26, 2015

I've got the 12inch thinkpad yoga.  The left shift key works intermittently.  This started happening to me a couple of weeks ago (I've had the computer since December and haven't noticed a problem.  I sent it in twice and supposedly, they replaced the whole machine this last time, but I'm still having the problem.  Could this be a fault in this model in general?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Use 65W Yoga Charger For X1 Carbon?

Feb 11, 2015

The label on the charger says:
MODEL 45N0261
FRU P/N 45N0262
Lenovo P/N 36200253  
It was advertised as X1 charger, but when it arrived I thought it's too small in size, so I googled it. Having done that, I've realised it's actually being sold by Lenovo as a charger for Yoga. 
Am I safe to use this charger for my ThinkPad X1 Carbon (3460-CLG)?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: How To Boot From SD Card

Jan 27, 2014

is there any possibility to make boot from SD Card on Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga?
I have live linux image, but there are no optical drive on system, so I would be glad to use the SD Card slot. When start with boot selection, there no SD Card slot listed even if I have the bootable SD Card inserted into. On other system the same card booting properly.
Are there some bois settings to allow booting from SD Card slot, so it will be included in boot device list? The same system boot from USB, but USB consume one USB port, so the SD Card is more preferable option.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Installing A 3G / LTE Module On It?

Is there a possibility of installing a 3G/LTE module on the Thinkpad Yoga? To my understanding there is an m.sata slot on the Yoga that allows for us to put extra SSD hard drives on it. Is it possible to replace it?
If not, are there other methods other than using usb-dongles or hotspots?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: S230u Started To Freeze A Lot

Jan 13, 2014

two days ago my Lenovo Twist S230u laptop started to freeze a lot, especially when I tried to multitask (like switching to a separate window). It probably took ten minutes each time for the computer to unfreeze and continue.
the in-built 'Lenovo Solutin Center' software ran an automatic diagnostic test, and said that the laptop failed the SMART short-self test (unfortunately I forgot to copy the error code). I didn't think much of it at the time since my laptop is only 5-months old. Just in case, I performed a disk cleanup, disk defrag and made sure everything is up to date. This was when the laptop began to freeze quite a lot. In desperation (and stupidity), I typed the chkdsk /r command in command prompt and asked it to run at reboot. Apparently the SMART short self test is a physical problem rather than a software problem, so obviously chkdsk won't work.
chkdsk ran for about two days now which is clearly too long for a 500gb HDD laptop. I've only used about half of this space too. I forced a shut down and now I cannot access Windows 8.1 through the boot menu (it just hangs on a black screen). Loading a rebootable USB recovery drive is not doing anything too.
I previously sought support on the Microsoft Answers website. They said that my 'hard disk is failing' and I will need to have my HDD replaced.I just want a second opinion here. Is warranty valid under this circumstance? From what I remember, 'Lenovo Solution Center' said I still had a few hundred days of warranty left on the machine.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Disabling Secure Boot On S1

Nov 16, 2014

I am trying to disable UEFI Secure Boot on my Thinkpad Yoga S1 but it keeps getting re-enabled after a reboot. If I set secure boot to disabled I can boot into the non secure OSes installed on the machine imediately afterwards but if the machine is restarted the Secure Boot seting in the BIOS is re-enabled.  It's important for me to have secure boot disabled as I use OSes without secure boot.

I try to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS on the following screen :

Link to image 1

But if I re-enter the BIOS either after booting into an OS or simply re-entering the BIOS, Secure Boot is back on:

Link to image 2

I have also tried to disable "OS Optimzed Defaults" but it also returns to enabled after a restart.

Link to image 3

Some of the other BIOS settings save correctly so I can't figure out why the secure boot settings don't. The BIOS version I have is the latest (1.18).

It's inconvenient to manually disable secure boot each time I want to use the laptop. The two operating systems (Ubuntu and Android x86) do work reasonably well once booted.
