Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Power Button Is Not Responding In Sleep Mode

Jan 27, 2014

sometime in sleep mode my Yoga fall into irresponsive mode without any possibility to do anything. The power button is simply not working - pushing it for more than 30 second not change anything... Yoga red light is slowly blinking, the fn key is lighting, the fan is working, processor is heating and this follows to full drain battery.

Is any possibility to reset or reboot this "thermal brick" Yoga mode? Some computers and tablet have the hard reset button to work with such a situation - have Thinkpad Yoga similar solution (i.e. button combination invoking reset)?

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 :: Can Use Old AC Adapter With New X1 Carbon?

Dec 21, 2013

I have an AC adapter left over from my first generation X1 Carbon. It is 90W/20V. The adapter that came with the new machine is quite a bit smaller, and only 65W/20V. Can I use the 90 watt adapter with the new model X1, or will it damage it somehow? Dont want to ruin my brand new computer.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Memory Cannot Be Recognized

Nov 9, 2014

I have newly bought a x1 carbon with 8g memory and i7 4660u, system win7 4 bites, the model is 20A7 CTO1WW, I didn't choose the high resolution screen because I think it is not neccessary.

But the usable momery is only 3.08gb, i am very confused and don't know what is the problem. Is it because the mainboard doesn't support 8g memory?

Here is the picture of system information.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Light Not Working On X1 Carbon LCD

Apr 3, 2014

I currently have an issue with my original X1 Carbon (2012, 3443-CTU) light not working on the LCD.  I attached an external monitor to the laptop and it works without issues so it's not the motherboard. Under the right lighting conditions and angle, i can see very very faintly my desktop background. 

This leads me to believe that the screen inverter is damaged, or the lcd. Since my ultrabook isn't under warranty, i believe the best course of action is to find the screen on ebay and replace it. [URL] ....

Is replacing the LCD as easy as it sounds? It looks like i need to remove much of the parts underneath the keyboard panel, and remove the LCD bezel and replace the screen. Is there something i'm missing?

Lenovo X1 Series ThinkPad :: Carbon Adaptive Keyboard

Jan 27, 2012

Just got my new x1 carbon, and I like it alot, trackpad isn't as bad as everyone is complaining about. However one big issue is that I want to keep the Function row on by default, and only switch to the default one with volume controls if I press the FN button to do so. Right now no matter even if I chose not to show the default keys, with volume and cloud and all that, it still comes back anytime I switch to a different app.

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 X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Won't Switch From AC To Battery

Nov 27, 2013

Bought a unit with this problem: As soon as I unplug the AC Cord from the laptop, it power off without notice and can't power up the laptop. It seems like the battery is not giving power .When I plug back in the AC, I can press the power button.
One strange thing is that the battery is 100%, state : good. Tried the reset battery so now 3 cycle counts. The thing is that if I unplug the AC cord only from the power outlet to the ac adaptor then the power is still up, the brightness goes down a bit and then power off without notice.
- the battery pack switch
- removed battery backup
- removed and reset the battery pack
I'm out of options and I would be glad if I can find what cause that "unswitchable thing".

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Turns Off When Charging

Nov 24, 2013

When I plug in the AC adapter, my x1 shuts off right away. I have to reset the time in the bios to get it to work again. This happened right after I changed the keyboard. Now, it seems to be permanent issue. I thought it was an adapter issue but I have two adapters and both work fine.

Lenovo X1 Carbon X Series ThinkPad :: Plugged In Not Charging?

Dec 17, 2012

Have a brand new X1 Carbon running windows 7.  It originally came with Windows 8 but had to downgrade to run a necessary work application (which could be the problem).  My battery never exceeds 50% even when plugged in for extended periods.  Also, I am not seeing any of the "Rapid Charge" that was promoted.

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 X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Doesn't Turn Off

Feb 9, 2015

I recently purchased a Lenovo X1 carbon, the weird thing is that the computer functions correctly when the power cord is plugged but when the power cord is unplugged the computer DOES NOT turn off no matter what you do. It restarts all the time. If you plug the power cord you can turn off your computer, but when you unplug it it starts working immediately?

In any case pushed the reset button on the back of the laptop but it didn't worked.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Running Slow

Apr 25, 2014

My X1 Carbon started running super slow since last week. The disk C: shows I still have 49.2 GB free space to use. So I think the problem does not relate to the space size. I am wondering if there is any way to clear something in my computer and make it run as fast as before.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Bitlocker EDrive On New X1 Carbon?

Jan 26, 2014

I recently received X240 and new X1 Carbon (Gen2) laptops with the 256GB eDrive and am working to set up Bitlocker using Windows 8.1.
On the X240, I followed the steps in another posting here and successfully got hardware AES working (by manually installing chipset on newly installed OS, then installed everything except RST and Bitlocker worked with the eDrive).
Following the same process on the new X1 Carbon, however, I only am able to use software encryption and can't figure out what to do to use the eDrive feature.
Is there a process to follow on the new X1 Carbon Gen 2?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon - Working With Closed Lid

Jul 2, 2014

I just received my Lenovo X1 Carbon; it's a very good product and I really like it. Everything is working as expected (fast & smooth) except one thing: laptop works kinda strange with the closed lid
My product code is 20A70037US, I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro.
I've chosen (in power options) that laptop does nothing when lid is closed. Yes, it works but... I'm using TeamViewer to connect to laptop; it works but TeamViewer periodically loses connection and displays message "The screen can't be captured at this moment..", Microsoft installer (I'm installing Visual Studio 2013) is paused (!), and Google Chrome won't render pages (but Internet Explorer works fine).
If I open the lid, all symptoms described above are disappear: installer resumes downloading, Chrome render html pages correctly and TeamViewer works fine (no periodical messages shown).
For me it looks like laptop not in "normal" operational state but kinda under power saving.
I've set power option to "High performance" (laptop is plugged) but it doesn't work.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Dropping 5 GHz WiFi?

Jul 24, 2014

On my new X1 Carbon, with a new Netgear R8000 router, The X1 will not hold a wifi connection, even 3 feet from the router. There is plenty of signal strength on all 3 channels. It connects for a while, but then the icon turns to "limited", and I have no internet connection. It works with my older Netgear WNDR 4500. Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector sees the three channels with plenty of signal, but will not plot them. I even tried reducing the maximum rate to 289 Mbps, and it still will not maintain a 5 GHz connection.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon Stuck On Splash Screen

Oct 27, 2014

I bought a new X1 Carbon (20A7) a week ago and from time to time the laptop gets stuck on the ThinkPad splash screen when booting. I have to hold the power button to turn it off and then it boots fine. My brother has this problem with T540p, although this happens to him a LOT more often (also, if he waits patiently for 10-20 minutes, the system boots eventually, I havent tried that on my X1).

It doesn't matter if the AC is connected, whether there is something connected to USB ports, whether it was a restart or just normal boot, there is no pattern that I can see, this seems random. We tried updating the BIOS to the newest version, our USB ports are not bent or anything, the SSD with the OS is set as the first boot device. This still happens. I see there are more people with thinkpads who have the similar problem, but their solutions do not apply (if there were any).

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Carbon X1 - Battery Drains Quickly

Jan 24, 2013

Lenovo Carbon X1Bought ~2 months ago (new) at a reseller in the USi5 3rd generation @ 1.7GHz4GB DDR3 (soldered on motherboard)128GB SSD (Samsung), must be SATA III (6GB/s) I guessWindows 8 Pro x64 

+40GB free space on the hard drive Original charger used, always . Laptop was never 'opened' (ie with screws)device mainly used to text editing, browsing and PhotoshopBackground apps/services: Apple iTunes services, Dropbox, Lenovo mouse/trackpad service and startup utilities like Google Update, Java update, Adobe Reader Speed launch.

I do not shut down my laptop most of the times, I simply put my computer in sleep modus (in other words: I close the lid of the laptop)I do play games on this laptop, but of course I do not expect the battery to last many hours when doing so. The battery drains quickly only in 'normal' situations - gaming, video editing and lots of Photoshop do not count of course.Connected to the internet all the time (no 3G, just WiFi)Bluetooth disabled. 

The laptop is fully charged using the original charger. The power plan is set to Power Saver (image). Brightness is set to around 60% of maximum according to the build in indicator of Windows 8. The apps that are open are Google Chrome ( with 5 tot 15 tabs most of the time), Outlook, Dropbox and one metro apps (weather or the app store).

(full image, click here)
As you can read, no heavy usage. The CPU is stable between 5% tot 20% and the RAM is at 40% to 70%.
