I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have Asus P5Q SE PLUS motherboard with E5400 LGA 775 intel pentium processor. My computer stopped functioning a couple of days ago. It powered up but nothing on video screan and the the blue light on the front of the the case goes off although the fans and power still is working. After checking systematicall, cpu, motheboard and devices, I am sure that the motherboard has failed. I want to install a different motherboard and cpu but I want to use my harddrives attached to the computer presently. Can I do this without having to dowload windows xp and my applications all over again. Please respond as soon as you can to let me know how to proceed. I remember that I had previously been able to use the same hare drive on another computer by just using the repair mode from my original cdrom install disk. Thanks for your anticipated response. Regards, Morris ([email protected]).
 

A:Replace motheboard and cpu on computer that crashed

Pretty sure if its the same brand/model identical MOBO and reuse processor or replace with identical, it will work. Any changes and probably going to not work without reinstalling windows.

2" vertical bar shimming and flickering, blacking out screen (capture attached); there are new screens available at ebay for $60 and YouTube tutorials on how to do it, is there anything I need to know about LCD/LED/IPS in terms of specs when I order? (Long out of warranty so trying to save on >$100 service fee, looking at other posts here this seems to be solution when other people had this issue and took their laptop in). (Did go to one tech place they said it was either the screen or the video card [which meant the whole thing was toast]; if I press on part of the screen the problem goes away which makes me think it's *not* the video card).

A:I'm going to upgrade my Motheboard

I'm not sure, someone help me if I'm off, but switching mobo's will require you to reinstall the OS, so I hope you're not using what came with your original pc, usually they dont give you an oem copy of windows. Also I wouldnt recommend core i(anything) in that case, it has poor airflow and can make your i7 run even hotter than its average 65C degree temps.

You have checked the memory and that works?
Then it could be the graphics card - check that in another machine and see if it works.
If its nither of them then it probeberly is your CPU or Motherboard. Check the CPU in another machine if one is handy. Other than that its just guess work

I know you guys need tons of info to help someone, but this all I have right now. My Hp is at a repair shop. I am not to comfortable with the guy who is working on it (he seems too unsure of everything I ask him) and I have been trying to learn about the hardware needed for my repair. I was reading some how to guides on replacing the motherboard, wich the guy at the shop told me was what the problem was, not sure if I will give it a go just yet. I know that when your pc boots up you can find the info there if you pause the screen at start up, but I'm new at all this and plus I'm a dumb a**. So the computer is at the shop and it wont start up anyway. How can I find out what type of motherboard I will need if say I wanted to try it myself or have a friend who I think can do it. The guy at the shop said it will take other brands than Hp. Universal or something, the guy is so vauge? Any suggestions on how I should go about this. I will try to find out my specs, so you guys can help me, but without the computer here, I really have no clue. Thanks so much in advance. Oh, also he estimated the bill at $144, $99 of that being the price of the motherboard, does that sound about right? TY again!

I bought a 750 psu and of course switching it out and all isn't a problem but when i plugged in the motherboard 16 pins or whatever it is..there a little 4 pin on the side of the cord..

The motherboard also has 4 that could be plugged in...you know what what i mean? if you don't I'll be a lot more specific.

So the PSU had a 16 pin (or whatever it is) and a 4 pin on the side of it Separate. My motherboard has that extra 4 pin that i can plug it into..

If you know what I'm talking about should plug it in?...

Hi all,

The laptop in question is a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4334. A few weeks ago, it got dropped right on its corner with the power plug still in it; the little metal plug of the AC adapter is now slightly crooked, and the power jack has a little chip off the plastic part of it.

Anyway, after this mishap, it worked fine for another 3, 4 weeks, and then suddenly this week, it's refusing to power up. Its battery has been shot for a while (can't hold a charge), and I've been using it with the battery out. Why the sudden refusal to boot?

I took the whole thing apart---minus the little chip, the power jack looks totally fine and cosmetically sound. Put the whole thing back together, taking care to check that plugs were snug---still no power.

Stuck in the crappy battery; booted just fine (and then shut itself down after like 2 minutes).

How likely is it that it's the power jack which is broken? And why did it take this long to crap out, if it IS broken?

A new one of those silly jacks costs over $20 on eBay, so I want to make sure that it's the jack before I just up and buy one. Of course, if it's the AC adapter that's broken, that would cost even more! Bah.

Input?
 

A:Replace the power jack or replace the adapter?

AND/OR inside the case the the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. Is also possible that
1) It's already cracked
2) If not yet, it's gonna crack

So look to see what connection looks like between power jack and motherboard, If you feel u wanna/can re-solder yourself or the typically price to redo the whole power thing seems to run $125 parts/labor/warranty if you take it somewhere. So how much is it all worth to you?

 Hi everyone, I have a question about the RAM in the x230. I bought the base 4gb of RAM with the intention of upgrading it myself later. The stock RAM inside is a Samsung model with this serial: m471b5273dh0-cko However, I cannot find this model RAM to put in another identical stick into the open slot. The closest model available is: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/memory-storage/MV-3T4G3/US Do you think these two sticks would be compatible? Did anyone else try a different type/model/amount of RAM? My gut feeling is that 8Gb of RAM would be great, and that 16Gb would be overkill. The other option is just to shell out a few more bucks and buy two pieces of matching RAM. I am considering Cruicals and Cosair Vengence RAM. Let me know what you guys think, Thanks, Jah

I am trying to do a clean install on my good, old Thinkpad X230 which came with 64-bit Windows 7 Professional. For some reason, I was not able to create a bootable media from the recovery partition. In any case, I wanted to avoid the recovery partition as I want a basic, non-bloated, and minimal install. Hence, I downloaded a copy of 64-bit Windows 7 Professional from Microsoft/ digital river website.

Hello and welcome,
 
Since you used the MS tool, I'll assume you want to boot the flash drive and install in legacy mode.  Try turning off UEFI boot in BIOS if you haven't already.  Probably should set BIOS to defaults first.
 
If you actually want to to a EUFI install you'll need to prepare the flash drive differently.

I don't understand how to choose the right one.

A:X230 new LCD cable

Unfortunately, not a cable or connector are the key problem. Your new LCD has another signaling interface eDP, while x230 supports older one LVDS. They aren't compatible even if you'll find the cable with 30 pins connector. There is a way to use eDP LCD if you'll add additional, 3rd party, interface coverter kit, but it's a complicated enough action, needs skills.So, replace new LCD to LGD LP125WH2-SLB3, x230 compatible IPS panel.

Hi Mim1234,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I am sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with no power on your ThinkPad X230.
 

Remove the AC adapter, system battery and CMOS (coin) battery (under the palm rest) for about 30 seconds.
Reattach the CMOS battery, palm rest, AC adapter and system battery.
Power your ThinkPad system ON.
If it powers on successfully, then update the BIOS and Embedded Controller code.
If it did not power on successfully, then have the ThinkPad system board (planar) replaced.

Please let us know the findings after performing the above troubleshooting steps.
 
Hope to hear back soon!
 
Best regards
Hemanth Kumar.B

Hello, hopefully someone can help with this, since the issue persists. I am using the USB 3.0 Ultradock, but the 3.0 docks on the x230 are not working properly. Do I need to delete the generic USB 2.0 hubs?  As a sysadmin, I know better, but I am so incredibly angry that Lenovo can't address such a simple issue that I'm willing to try anything at this point.  Next step, of course, is to find a bloatware-free laptop that doesn't require 3 different update wizards (Windows, Lenovo, OEM) to operate, but since it's 2017 that may well be impossible so I'd better solve this problem (again) while I'm searching. My x230 is using the default Windows drivers (dated 2006) and the generic USB 2.1 hub.

My 230X ran Win 10 successfully from Jan 2016 until October 2016 (Build 10586.633).  Since last fall, Windows Update wastes about 1/2 hr every time the unit is booted to try to update to 1511. At this end of this process, the progress screen goes directly from 99% done (downloading, configuring, installing) to "can't finish ... now undoing the changes."  Sometimes an second reboot is needed to log on; sometimes not.  Same thing happens regardless of whether external monitor and/or mouse and/or keyboard are used and regardless of whether the unit is in its docking station.  Same thing happens whether or not I've deleted files in the "software download" folder or run clean-up utilities.  Using the PC is also interrupted by reminders that there are updates to install. Sometimes Windows Update will wait for the restart time I've selected; sometimes not.  Unit has 4 GB RAM, Norton 360 and a GoFlex back up drive. This model is NOT on the list tested for Win 10 1511 or Win 10 1607.  I don't know why, and a TA call to Lenovo gave no help.  I declined the offer of a paid TA session to solve this by reinstalling Win 8. Has any one had this problem? Is there a kill-switch for the automatic Win 10 updates? Other suggestions?  Tx!

These problems are new and remain after a clean install, so I think it may be a hardware issue. Symptoms: 1) Laptop doesn't sleep properly. I notice this because of the battery drain, even though the "sleep" led is on 2) Laptop doesn't wake. The power led blinks, but pressing it has no effect.  I have to press and hold the power button to force a hard off, then press it again to turn on. Like I said I've never had these problems in the many years I've had this laptop, so I assume some hardware part has failed. The question is which?

I purchased recently Thinkpad X230.Upgraded to Windows 10 and updated but noticed in few days it works so slow.I unlugged the battery and left to work only on power supply/adapter.I noticed that CPU works only on 1.2GHz.Why is that?When I plugged the battery and plug in at wall socket CPU runs at 3.1GHz max.I was so dissapointed,which means CPU can't work at it's max frequency without battery,otherwise I wouldn't buy this notebook.Is this normal or not,and why is it happening?

A:X230 CPU running at 1.2GHz only,why?

Why would you want to run without a battery???
 
There are 2 power inputs.  If one is disconnecterd, the CPU will throttle down.

I am looking for a speaker system under $50, and was looking at two different sets. The logitech X230 and X240. I noticed that the X230 has a more powerful subwoofer and satellite rating. The X240 is more expensive, but IS that because of better sound or just the ipod dock? I have an ipod so that would be helpful, but I definately don't want to sacrifice any sound quality.
Thanks

Hi, I have an X230 running windows 10 64 bit. I have a problem where the wifi stops working randomly and the only solution seems to be restarting the computer. I have seen many similar forum posts regarding various lenovo models and I have tried the suggested solutions including updating the driver and turning off the power managment's ability to shut off the wifi module. None of them have seemed to work. It appears that there are newer drivers available but windows insists that it has the newest and best driver and even if I uninstall and delete the older drivers, windows defaults back to them.I switched out the wifi module with a newer, supposedly oem module which is on the lenovo whitelist for this model (intel ultimate-n 6300agn) and I have the same behaviour. Thanks

I bought mSATA SSD to speed up my x230, I planned to install OS and most used programs on SSD and keep HDD as data storage, but I have problems with OS installation (Win10) to SSD and booting ntb from this SSD. Is there some problem (i read somewhere that this mSATA is not bootable what sounds pretty stupid to me)? Is somewhere step-by-step instruction how to install windows on mSATA? Thanks...

A:x230 mSATA - bootable?

It is bootable.  You need to make sure the bootloader is also on it.  First, back up any needed user data.  The easiest way is wipe the mSATA drive or remove all partitions.  Clear the 2.5" drive and  remove it from the machine, and then do an install with the mSATA as the only drive in the machine.  Install the 2.5"drive and it will be a data drive.

I have been using my X230 for last two years without any problems and it still works fine except for one thing: very recently I have experienced a sudden power off a couple of times. I don't remember whether it was plugged but my battery is perfect for sure. While operating normally, the power suddenly went off. So I had to reboot it. This happened around 5 times last couple of weeks.  I realized that I have never done a system update since I purchased this so I tried to do that but it doesn't work. (See my another post below for this issue.) Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:X230 suddenly powers off

I am experiencing a similar problem with my 2 year old ThinkPad x230 laptop. In my situation, the computer goes completely dead instantly on a random basis.  It is like the power supply just disappeared.  No attempt at a normal shutdown process.  Just instantly dead with black screen and no indicator lights.. In my situation the problem happens regardless of whether the computer is operating on battery only, battery + A/C supply or just A/C supply.  (Just in case I recently ordered a new OEM 44+ battery which has not arrived.) I have completely updated WIN 7 64 bit Pro, all drivers, and Lenovo Solution Center software. I scanned for viruses and malware using Norton, Norton Power Eraser and Malwarebytes:  all is shown as OK. I replaced the 180GB SSD drive with a new Samsung Model 850 SSD 500GB.  Same problem. Ran every hardware diagnostic tool I could find on system checking SSD, memory and all other hardware.  All reports as fine.  CPU temperature is 45-52 degrees C max.  SSD temperature is about 34 degrees C.  No noticeable hot spots on case. Updated BIOS.  Same problem. Disabled hibernation.  Same problem. (Perhaps related is a message from Lenovo Solution Center that a hidden (non-lettered) partition on the SSD is 95% full.  I assume this partition, which is labelled "Data" like the D:/ partition, is some sort of system related log or backup sep...

I have an older ThinkPad x230 with a factory-installed Sierra Wireless MC7700-Gobi 4000 for AT&T LTE & HPSA+ adapter and SIM Card for AT&T LTE. I now have a new ThinkPad x260 with a factory-installed Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A (Sierra Wireless EM7455). There was no option to specify a SIM card like last time. Can I just remove the SIM card from the older x230 and put it in the newer x260? Or will I need a different SIM card?

A:Can I use SIM card from x230 with x260?

Hellox260 supports micro SIM card while x230 supports standard sized SIM card. Of course, you know these cards' sizes are incompatible.
