I recently bought an X240 and have this shutdown problems. Before it was caused by Norton anti-virus so I uninstalled it, then the laptop was working fine. Now, after some Windows update, it doesn't shutdown again. What is wrong with this laptop?
Windows doesn't recognize that my U530 Touch Laptop has a touch screen. Worked okay for the first couple of months. I've tried looking for hardware updates and restarting. Computer is only a few months old, so this stinks.
We bought 12 X240 pc's and installed a Windows 7 64bit OS on them. We are having problems on several laptop (5 so far) that they freeze several times a day. The mouse icon changes in the processing icon, you can still move your mouse but can't click anything or even press ctrl + alt + del. Have to long press the power key to get them to power off.
I already read that there were problems with the fingerprint reader software, uninstalled it but still having the problems (fingerprint reader is disabled in BIOS). Also upgraded the fingerprint reader software to the latest version on another pc, but same problem.
Ran solution center on one of the PC's, didn't find any problems. Ran system update and updated all to the latest version. Also tried to change the power settings to Performance mode in windows. But problem keeps coming back.
I tried installing the latest Intel graphics driver, but it fails to start stating that you need a version from the manufacturer. No error messages in the windows event logs.
I made the mistake of upgrading my X240 to Windows 8.1, and now the sleep function won't work properly. I've updated all of the drivers and I've been on the phone with Lenovo support to no avail. Everything worked perfectly before the 8.1 upgrade.
When I close the lid now, the screen goes off, but the computer doesn't go to sleep; if you open the lid, the screen comes back on immediately. If the lid is closed for a while, and is then reopened, the login screen comes up. But in the Windows 8.1 settings, it is set to NOT show the login screen. If the lid is closed for a long time, the computer will shut down completely.
If you go to the Windows menu and click on "Sleep," the screen will go dark although it's clear the computer is still running. Pressing the on/off button does nothing. The only way to get the screen to come back on is to shut the computer down completely and restart it.
I tried uninstalling the Lenovo Instant On Beta program, but without that, closing the lid shuts off the screen with no way to wake it up, the same thing that happens by clicking Sleep on the Windows menu. So it appears that the Instant On Program partially overrides whatever bad behavior is being caused by Windows.
What driver, software, or settings could be causing this? I've looked at various threads about sleep issues, but none of them seem to apply to my situation, or the solutions they recommended (like unchecking the power management features on some of the drivers) didn't solve the problem.
I open this post to report a brightness problem on Lenovo Z500 Ideapad. Yesterday I've upgraded to OS Windows 8.1 and when I adjusted the screen brightness it goes off, and brightness adjust function doesn't works. I've solved my problem reinstalling the Intel video drivers, downloaded from Lenovo Driver Support.
It seems that Windows 8.1 upgrade disables video drivers.
I just got my new carbon touch thinkpad today, and I couldn't be happier, until I closed the lid and reopened it a couple of minutes later. The screen froze for a while and then I got a BSOD with the notice CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. I hoped it would be just some coincidence, and updating my drivers and installing windows updates would solve it. So I did, and closed the lid again. After reopening it, I got the same error. So I figured I could just as well restore to my factory settings. Without luck. After updating everything for a second time, still no luck. I check the disk and did a memory check, but everything seems fine. The lenovo Solution center isn't reporting any issues either. I looked into the minidump created by the blue screen, and it seemed the process failing is called csrss.exe.
I turn on my laptap and it start up normally. All are loaded up in the homescreen except the cursor which keeps on loading ( its like when you refresh). All keys are not working except to the CapsLock key, the touchpad and trackpoint ( color red) are working.
I remove the power source and battery to shut it down but it doesn't shut down! Now it is running for 5 minutes, and the screen still ON, continue to refresh. How to shut this down and restart.
I just got a brand new thinkpad X240, with 500G HD, Win8. I installed a Win7 on this new SSD, then replaced original 500G HD in X240 with this new SSD. However, after I replaced, computer cannot boot , it got stuck with BOOT MENU section, no matter you choose any options..In the Boot Menu, I saw boot devices: one is my new SSD. I click it, it does not work. I tried several times. (PC can recognize my SSD, just dont know why it cannot read it.)
I am sure this SSD is working, since I tested on different computers, they can boot successfully.
I bought my X240 from a Lenovo authorised distributor (the one that comes with a svc centre) 3 wks ago. They told me that the one I bought does not come with in-built battery and so it came with a 6-cell batt. i asked why and they said its this way. i bought the set. Have I been lied to? i have not come across a set on the internet without powerbridge !!
My Lenovo Labtop X240 /w Windows 8.1 (x64) can't Hibernate (immediate resume after Hibernate). It success for Sleep, Shutdown, but when I set Hibernate by close lid, Power button, or Hibernate on Menu. Windows try to Hibernate, and immediate recover to windows.
Now, i done for -Upgrade Windows, Driver, Lenover, Intel -run MSconfig set "Selective start up" turn off "non Microsoft services" and Disable "Start up services" -Run Power troublesshooting on windows
I am now using Lenovo X240 touch screen model and I am trying to charge my lap top but after plugged in, the red light on top cover are keep blinking, what does it means ??? I have check batter one has 97% and 2nd battery has 98%, but I still want to charge it.... what should I do ..???
I don't want to use the BIOS update method because I think it will make my computer not working anymore.
How do I press [F1], [F2], [F3], [F4], [F5], [F6], [F7], [F8], [F9], [F10], [F11] and [F12] without everytime pressing [Fn] to use these keys. So the original keys are: [Mute], [Vol-], [Vol+], [Close], [Refresh], [Touchpad], [Airplane] [Apps], [Screen], [Projector], [Bright-] and [Bright+], I want them to be: [F1], [F2], [F3], [F4], [F5], [F6], [F7], [F8], [F9], [F10], [F11] and [F12], and when you press [Fn] they be: [Mute], [Vol-], [Vol+], [Close], [Refresh], [Touchpad], [Airplane] [Apps], [Screen], [Projector], [Bright-] and [Bright+].
My fairly new Lenovo Y410p funtions extremely well when playing a video game, but only when connected to a charger, as soon as I disconnect the charger, my framerate can drop to upto 1/8th of the original framerate. It is always connected to the NVidia Graphics Card, the power plan is always on high performance, and the minimum processor state on battery for the processor power management is 100%. How I can fix it? Am I missing something fairly obvious, or is there a defect with my computer?
I have a new X240. It has a sim card slot on the right side. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit.
it seems that the x240 does not recognize wwan hardware. I can't find it in the device manager. It doesn't connect to any network when I insert a SIM card. Also, no unknown devices show up in the device manager. I installed the following drivers in an attempt to fix the issue:
-Ericsson N5321gw wireless WAN -Sierra Wireless 7355 - Gobi 5000
... but no success.
I also tried running commands in cmd window to check the status of the wwan:
-netsh mbn sh int -netsh mbn sh cap int=*
... but I always get the same message: "Mobile Broadband Service (wwansvc) is not running"
I am starting to think that having a sim card slot does not neccessarily mean that the x240 is Mobile Broadband capable.
I've got an x240 with bios enabled fingerprint and the latest fingerprint driver/utlity installed, a fingerprint registered and all the options checked for fingerprint to be integrated and boot.
When the laptop is powered off the fingerprint swipe doesn't boot the machine, no LED on it, it's dead. How do I make fingerprint power on work?When the laptop is in sleep mode the fingerprint swipe doesn't boot the machine, no LED on it, it's dead. How do I make fingerprint resume from standby work?When win7 boots and it's at the CTRL+ALT+DEL login screen the fingerprint LED is green, a fingerprint swipe does nothing. How do I get single sign on to work?Only when I manually hit CTRL+ALT+DEL will the Fingerprint graphic then show on screen, at that point the swipe works. How do get the fingerprint to log me in without any manual intervention? The x201 I had previously did all this without an issue.
Is there anyway to disable the center scroll button on the x-240 trackpad. I keep hitting it when I try to use the left mouse button. I never use the scroll button and want to get rid of it. The new trackpad's design is horrible with the undefined buttons.
Knocked half a glass of water over keyboard yesterday. Turned off & wiped away straightaway. No problem re-booting etc but now some kets along top 2 rows not working.After a day - do you think there's any chance these will spring back into life?Do Lenovo supply any on-site repair options (at a cost obviously).....can't spare time at moment to send away - even for a couple of days.
