Hi everyone.
I have a T460p (MTM 20FXS0MW00) on my desk that recently started behaving strangely.
The 2x USB ports on the right side do not detect USB3 devices, but they work perfectly with USB2 storage / peripherals. Also because of this problem, the FPR (and possibly other devices as well) is not functional (BIOS/Os). The single USB port on the left side is on a seperate control board, so it is not affected by this.
This is most definitely a hardware problem and I have tried to downgrade / reset BIOS as well as clearing CMOS to no avail.
Is this a dead controller on the planar? Would I have to get a new one or can it be fixed?
All the best,

The client is angry because Microsoft support is not support suffers from monthly hangs.  It is Windows 7 per dictate from "knowledgeable" Executives..  It is running one application:  Telephone Reader made by University of Kansas. 
There are dozens of live users serviced by this PC simultaneously.  They are inconvenienced when the operator has to power cycle the PC.  The logs provide no indication as to why the PC is locking up.  How about a fix?

I haven't been able to update in months because of this. I don't understand how the computer's required files can be using up more than half of my disc space. I've done disc cleanup, but that did nothing. I have deleted every possible thing on this computer that I can. The only apps I have are spotify, gimp, and microsoft word. I store all of my documents and pictures on a flash drive. I only use this computer for writing and for surfing the internet, but my disc space is somehow so full that the computer can't update.

So, what do I do? All my space is taken up by "required files". This laptop is less than two years old, I can't accept that it's time to get a new one already. What are my options?
Dear at Microsoft Technet ,,,

I first notice the problem about a month ago. Suddenly I am unable to upload my resume to internet job sites. Word and PDF files will not upload and I end up having to manually enter a text version of my resume, which is time consuming and less attractive
than the formatted versions. I have MS Word 10 but even saved as compatible to lower versions it will not upload. I've tried saving the documents with shorter file names and making sure they do not exceed the space requirements. I've tried removing text boxes
and other unusual formatting in case that was the issue. Off the top of my head, my resume will not upload to government job sites, my university job seeker web site, or the career builder web site. This must be an issue with either windows Vista or my internet
explorer settings. I've searched the internet and this forum for an answer but have not been successful in resolving the issue. I noticed another user of the forum posted the same question, but the answer - a link to a resolution that changes a registry key
- did not resolve the problem. My registry already matches the recommended settings.
To recap - I cannot upload documents to internet sites. This is needed for my job search. Please help!

Hello viewers.  I bought the active pen two because it was the logical choice for my Yoga 530. However it doesn't quite work "right". It'll work most of the time but sometimes the pen pressure goes out. This happens once in a few strokes with and it doesn't matter how you hold the pen. This happens in Photoshop but I also saw that when I use it in other programs it also won't connect properly. Either going completely off or having no pen pressure at all.  Example in the image. (PSD) I tried installing multiple drivers who were associated with the pen but nothing worked yetI also tried removing the tip/getting the batteries out   
OS: Windows 10 When moving the mouse pointer with the touchpad, if I happen to touch the touchpad with my thumb the pointer immediately stops moving and switches to scrolling mode. I've tried disabling 2 finger scrolling but the motion is still blocked (but not scrolling). I'm finding this behaviour really frustrating. On most other laptops I've used (MacBook, Dell) if 2 fingers are touching when vertically positioned relative to each other, the pointer isn't blocked from moving. Is this behaviour observed in previous generations of the X1? Any suggestions on what I can try to fix this? I've played around with the settings but haven't managed to find a solution. Also, I couldn't find the drivers for the 7th Gen...
I want to replace my faulty lenovo T410 motherboard (FRU:63Y1483) and buy a cheap one that it has a different FRU (75Y4066). Is it doable or i will face compatibility issues  with the other parts of my laptop? Is there a specific reason  so many different mobo type FRUs exist?

Hi guys, I notice on my Thinkpad P52 when i press the ctrl and fn key that they goes down and make annoying noise, do you have this problems? Have any idea how to fix it???
in my previous post i said i forgot the BIOS password for my t460s and i couldn't even log into it. I want to upgrade the ram and I know how to but I'm concern that after i do that and the system starts; it detects a new hw installed and asks me for the BIOS password to continue. I would be stuck forever. So do you guys know if BIOS password is asked whenever there is a HW change specifically on a t460s or something similar?
Hi,Finaly I have been able to pinpoint the problem with the battery not charging, to this special flight mode.If I disable it in Vantage it stays disabled and the charging is working fine, but after a re-power it ends up again in this special flight mode, really annoying I can see the windows battery tray symbol with a small AC-plug symbolising it is charging ok at power up, in the windows log in screen but as soon as I log in, after just a few seconds, it changes to the special flight mode and not charging, so it seems there are some sort of software/driver that is not working.I have had this PC since september last year and it has allways been working ok, but now after my third day after comming back from vacation I got this problem.Can you please advice how to fix this.Best Regards,Anders
one particular device in the network keep disconnect approx. after 30 min, sometime upto 3 hrs. working. after that device not pinging, no connection.

if i restart the device, again start working for some time approx (30 - 3 hrs).

when we check the network cable, it is in good condition and while pinging no drops.

what could be the issue.
few devices are connected with our network with linksys 4 port switch (layer 2), then suddenly one particular devices stopped working. we tried dlink other linksys switches no use. that particular device still no communication.

when we change to the normal switch (layer 1 hub - unbranded low cost switch), all devices including that disconnected devices are start working (also pinging).

what are the differences in the above switches (low cost vs high cost).
Hi. Do I need to use third party software for that? which one please? Thank you.

Hey guys, I own Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 6th with latest specs(except my screen is not HDR but a matte one). The laptop is approximately 4.5 months old and I have 3 years warranty on it. I noticed exactly the same "behaviour" around my touchpad which is described in this topic. With no explanation or reason, I have been seeing(already 5-6 times) when my touchpad simply freezes and the cursor stop moving completely. However, usually red button(pointer) along with keyboard work just fine. The only thing which always helped me to solve this issue is just rebooting the laptop.  All my drivers are up to date via Lenovo Vantage app as well as the latest precision windows 10 drivers installed. Any ideas what could cause this occasional touchpad freeze? Should I contact Lenovo warranty support or this is 100% related to a software issue, not the hardware?  Btw, I have done hardware scan test via Lenovo Vantage and no issues noticed at all. Appreciate any help here or advice as this is kind of frustrating considering how new is this machine.
My laptop apears to have a small shaded spot on its screen. The spot is visable with the screen being on, and also when the screen is completely off. The spot is located on the lower left of the screen.
I have at least 2 T460p's in our fleet that are having sound issues. Sound works through the head phones, however when the headphones are unplugged, no sound comes through the speakers. Win10 (1803) is switching between the two audio devices and levels are displaying as if Windows thinks the sound is playing, but nothing comes out.  I have done the following:* uninstalled audio drivers and updated to the latets.* ran Lenovo updates and have the latest BIOS and Intel drivers. Has anyone experienced this and does anyone have a fix?
