When running System Update on an X280, many background windows seem to flicker into and out of existence.  This includes when System Update is running in the background.  It causes issues when typing in other windows since the focus shifts to the background window.  Is there a way to make these windows not take the focus?  Is there a better way to report this as a bug? Thanks, Bill

Netflix has been working fine on my Yoga Book until last week or so. Now it constantly crashes immediately when I launch the application. The only message displayed is "Netflix has stopped" and the option of giving feedback.After first trying to uninstall and reinstall Netflix with the same result, I have now factory reset the tablet. Netflix still crashes. Anyone with the same problem, or even better, a solution to fix this?

Like many of you probably, I love my T61. I do need to upgrade because I teach online and use Java heavy programs. I'm wondering if people can suggest a more recent model that has the same or a similar keyboard. I don't have enough technical knowledge to upgrade my T61, although it's fun to read what people are doing here. Thanks so much
Hi Is it possible for the Lenovo technical support team to advise whether through a BIOS update could be possible to lift the ram limitation on the P51 and P71 which as per the technical specs sheet is 64GB, having looked and investigated through different sites and forums with owners of the previous ThinkPad version (P51 and P71) I couldn't find any information whether the P51 and P71 can take more than 64GB ram but recently I conducted the test myself and I bought 2 of the Samsung 32GB DDR4 SODIMM 2666 MHz Laptop Memory Module/Stick and installed them myself on my P51 and I can successfully confirmed that these new Samsung modules work perfectly on the P51, however I noticed that after installing them on the BIOS the total RAM reported is 64GB but when logging into the OS (Windows 10) I can see that the system is reporting 72GB installed (I had an 8GB module installed previously) and on the task manager shows also as well 72GB but only usable 64GB. This makes me to believe that is possible to have this ram limitation lifted on the P51 and P71 maybe through a BIOS update, and I mentioned this because looking at a BIOS update done on the latest P52 and P72, on this particular BIOS update as per shown below there was a fix on those models where a fix was applied to address an issue with memory capacity show incorrect. This is the full list of fixes on that update (the fix in mentioned is highlighted on bold)<1.10>UEFI: 1.10 / ECP: 1.09- (New) Added support...

Hello;I've been trying to deal with this issue for over a month now, however I just can't handle this on my own.The BIOS in my X230 stopped working after an installation of Debian. I can boot into the OS, but I can only boot from the HDD (I can't access the bootmenu in any way) and I can't access the UEFI/BIOS panel.Both of these options give me either a black screen or a white DOS-esque cursor (not blinking).I've already tried reflashing the BIOS multiple times (including downgrading it, but it doesn't do anything) and trying to force an UEFI boot in Windows.What can I do with this issue (can I even fix it on my own)? Thanks in advance,leaky 
Hi, I came accross this this post - Re: T480 Drive Encryption and posted a reply but no reply received. So, I want to know the following: 1. How does the HDD Hardware Encryption works on a Lenovo T480, what I discovered it works a bit different, boot into the BIOS and enable the HDD Password, enter a password and that's it correct? Note * This is on a Intel SSDPEKKF512G8L SSD.2. What I normally used is OPAL Encryption on the Samsung EVO 8xx range but I'm not able to do this on the T480 with the Intel SSD? Did anybody else experienced this before and if so, please give me some feedback. Thanks.

Hello , can I replace my lenovo g400s battery with a S400 battery ?I could not find g400s battery in my country
Hi all, I have a Thinkpad  X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. WIndows Hello works fine with the camera, but I do not see any settings in the Windows Hello Settings app for configuring the Fingerprint reader. The device has a fingerprint reader. I am sure the fngerprint reader worked fine when I purchased the device. I performed a full device reset as I was having issues with battery performance (now cured), but the fingerprint option is still not available. Any thoughts?  
Nearly six weeks my P52 has been out for repair & every time I call they say the same thing.  They claim they're waiting on a motherboard to come in from China.  Given that I could purchase a brand new P52 & have it shipped to me in a few days it's unbelievable that Lenovo's own repair centers still can't get a replacement board!  This is absurd for what I thought was a business class machine.  I've already had to purchase another laptop since I cannot do my work without a capable machine & I spent a few hundred more & bought a Dell mobile workstation like I should have the first time.  Never again will I buy a Lenovo product, it's obvious to me they only care about selling computers & have no clue how to support them.
So I have downloaded the Windows 10 software onto my USB drive. When I boot my newly built computer, it will not boot off of the USB, even when I choose it through the BIOS. I've watched YouTube video after YouTube video. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

and when I press the letter c on my keyboard it opens inspevct element and adds a v .
I use windows 10
I turn on my pc and start playing any game, a few seconds or minutes later the pc shuts off And the fans ramp up. The temp never exceeds 30 celcius.
If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it

Having used this for a few weeks, the speakers had always been quite loud. But not sure why suddenly they have become quiet soft, despite being on 100% max volume (with or without Dolby Atmos). Checked all the usual windows settings, everything is on 100%.  Any suggestions?  Speaker drivers: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 21/06/2018
