Lenovo X240 X Series ThinkPad :: Output Sound Quality Loss?

May 3, 2014

Actually it happend about 2 months ago. The sound coming out of the speaker as well as the sound when I was using a headphone was just not right, barely any low frequency sound. In the beginning I can fix this by reinstalling the audio driver. Then after a week or so the same problem would occur again, and I had to reinstall the driver. After several times, reinstalling the audio driver cannot solve the problem anymore. Besides if I plug in the headphone after I muted the laptop, it should unmute automatically right? Well that does not happen and it's still muted.

I have been anxiously awaiting the X240 as a possible upgrade to my Thinkpad collection. It turns out the X240 supports only 8GB of RAM with but 1 DIMM slot. The X230 supports 16GB with 2 DIMM slots.
No, I am not going to buy one. What is up with this decision, Lenovo?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P HDMI Quality Output - Not Optimal Screen Resolution For Primary Display

Jan 1, 2015

I have a problem with hdmi output to my TV screen.

I have Y510P (i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz,  Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

& NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M, Win 8.1 64-bit(6.3 build 9600), all with latest drivers )

My TV is Panasonic TH-L32B6. When I connect my laptop to TV it shows me awful picture quality and notification that “this is not optimal screen resolution for the primary display. The optimal res. Is 1280x720”. But with 1280x720 it’s still awful. It works fine just with 1024x768 res. I have no such a problem with my other TV LG 47LS570Y. How can i fix picture quality with higher resolution? I tried another OS like Ubuntu and a couple of hdmi cables…(see attachment)

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 Replaced SSD Then Cannot Boot

Jan 18, 2014

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.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 Space Bar Key Delay?

Jan 15, 2014

Each time i press space bar key, there is a very small delay before space appears on screen.
So i make a lot of typing errors.
Computer is X240, BIOS is 2.16, every driver is up to date.
Windows is 8 PRO. It does the same with Windows 7 so i think it's a software issue.
Lenovo E420 had that before and problem was fixed by a BIOS update.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 Windows 7 Freezes

Jul 14, 2014

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.
X240 model is 20AL00C1MB.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 - Compatible SSD For WWAN Slot

Jul 7, 2014

I want to install an additional M.2 SSD to my X240. As far as I know, X240 has three M.2 port:

 - One single side M.2 for wireless card
 - One single side M.2 42 mm for WWAN (3G card). Mine is empty in this slot.
 - One double side M.2 for cache drive.

For M.2 cache drive, I dont know if my machine has it. I dont have smart card reader module either.

But I do have the single M.2 42 mm.

I want to buy a SSD: MyDigitalSSD Super Boot Drive 42mm SATA III (6G) M.2 2242 NGFF SSD (128GB (120GB)) But it is double side (B and M key).

tell me if I can install it to M.2 slot of WWAN module?

This is the picture of my WWAN slot

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Mobile Broadband Hardware Not Detected In X240

Dec 22, 2014

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.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 Won't Sleep Properly After Upgrade To Windows 8.1

Apr 27, 2014

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.

Lenovo X240 Series ThinkPad :: Fingerprint Reader Power Up Or Login

Dec 22, 2013

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.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 / Change A Password Option Is Blank Except For Cancel

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X240 - SD Reader Slot - Unable To Extract Card

Mar 17, 2014

I just reveiced my Lenovo Thinkpad x240 20AL000AAU with SD card reader integrated.
I inserted an SD card standard size and the card is read properly, I can access all the files and I can write on it.
The problem is that I cannot extract the card from the SD card slot!
If I right-click on SD card in My Computer and choose eject, it says that it is safe to remove the card. If I select "Safely remove Hardware and eject media" it tells me that it is safe to remove it...but the card is stuck inside!
I read somewhere to press the card until I hear a click but I cannot hear any click.
Also the card is unreachable inside the slot. I cannot grab it to pull it. I can only press it a little bit with the nail, it goes one millimeter inside but I don't hear any click.

I have a ThinkPad x240 that is about 2 months old running Windows 7. Everything has been working great until this morning.   I was on vacation and did not use my laptop for a week or so.   When I plugged it into my docking station this morning, I noticed that the battery was reading 0% charged and was not charging.

Troublshooting so far
Tried charging with external power supply outside of docking station - No Change
Removed battery, powered unit up and removed all Battery items in Device Manager
Reinstalled battery and powered unitup - No change
Removed and reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management and Driver / rebooted - No change

Current state: No Power Management software on the laptop - just using the Microsoft stuff (Still not charging). What else I should be trying / checking?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Maximum Speed Of X240 Core I7-4600U Processor Only 2.69 GHz?

Jul 29, 2014

I bought a ThinkPad X240 recently.  On Lenovo's website, it says the max speed is 3.30 GHz.  However, in the Windows 8.1 Task Manager, it says the maximum speed is 2.69 GHz.  See [URL] ....
Why there is a discrepancy?  I also tried running Prime 95 for a little while and noticed that the "Speed" in Task Manager never went above 2.70 GHz.  Did I somehow get a weird i7-4600U processor that has a max speed of only 2.7 GHz?

Lenovo X240 Series ThinkPad :: Fingerprint Reader Does Not Work After Standby Or Lockscreen

Oct 29, 2009

I have a new X240, and the fingerprint logon no longer works after the computer resumes from standby or from a lockscreen (screen saver). I have checked other solutions here and in other sites, namely:
1. unchecking the power option of the fp reader in device manager,
2. and switching the 30-day standby in Lenovo Settings
Neither of those solutions have worked. I have the latest BIOS and FP driver versions. I made sure the the FP was enabled in BIOS, and I even switched the settings to allow internal FP reader only. Still, the FP will only work when I first power on the laptop, but not after resuming from stand-by. I have checked in Device Manager after manually entering the password, and it says that the FP is working properly.
