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 planned to purchase Lenovo WiGig dock for my x270 but postponed the decision after reading commentaries about compatibility issues with some of Thinkpad models.As I understand, the only WiGig compatible WiFi module is Intel 18260 (Triple band?).My x270 (product no. 20K5S08T08) has Intel Dual Band AC-8260.I assume that WiGig will not work with my Thinkpad.Am I right?

Hi all,Would a keyboard made for an X270 (FRU: 01EP062) be backwards-compatible with an X240? When I do a parts lookup, it just says that it is a keyboard, and doesn't list compatibility. I've noticed that many off-brand keyboards are being sold on Amazon with cross-device compatibility. Thanks!

Hello,

I recently had issues with my PSU and rather than play guesswork on whether its still functional, I rather just replace it.

My motherboard is a m3n78-pro. Its a bit dated but I'd like for this pc to last another 6 months before I build an entirely new rig. If I read the manual correctly, it requires ATX 12V V2.0.

The PSU I'd like to change to (since it just has to last another 6 months) this 900 w PSU. Would the m3n78-pro be compatible with this PSU? One concern I had was that the m3n78-pro requires a 4 pin ATX +12v connector. If I read the PSU's specifications correctly it has one 12V 8-pin (4 + 4) CPU power connector. Is that 8-pin two separate power connector, ie do I just use 1 of the connectors to fit into the 4 pin ATX +12v connector?

Please excuse my noobishness but what exactly does the v2.92 Motherboard specification entail? I tried to google it, but got less useful information and product results from newegg.

Also I read the wiki on the ATX 12V V2.X standard, but it didn't answer my question - is ATX12V v2.3 backwards compatible with the ATX12V v2.0 standard?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

I need some advice about the displays for the x270 ? is the HD display on the x270 an IPS? I didn?t find this info here https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-x/ThinkPad-X270/p/20HNCTO1WWENUS0/customize?...! My current x240 with has HD resolution (I can?t tell if it?s IPS or not) model 20ALCTO1WW ? I?m considering replacing it with the x270.I?ve heard good things about the FHD display but I?m concerned that with the FHD panel my font size will be too tiny for my 50+ year old eyes in its native resolution. I?ve heard that scaling the display results in suboptimal rendering/quality of text/fonts. Has anyone looked at both versions of the display? How do they compare? I?ll be using the system for mostly coding/writing and perhaps watching some videos. No Graphics or PS intensive work. Might hook it up to the tv from time to time (not that often) The display on the x240 isn?t the greatest (could be brighter for sure) but it works fine, so I could probably do fine with the same type for the x270 ? or is there something that I ought to consider? Thanks! PS: FWIW, I?m planning to get the i5-7300 model with 16 GB RAM and the 500 GB drive (that I plan to replace with a standard SSD 500 GB or 1TB drive ? hopefully not a problem).

I   replaced the keyboard of my X270, not realising how much more difficult this process was than on an X230. I got everything working, and it powered up fine.  But my X270 wont power on. It recognises the AC adapter. Pushing the emergency powerup pinhole next to the battery doesn't work either.  I suspect that the power button is not working. I opened up the laptop to investigate, and found that a connector around the area of the power button is damaged (pictured).  The wire seems to have detached from the smaller connector.  My questions:Is this connector related to the power button?  Can I find a replacement, or repair with soldering?  Where can I find a map of the motherboard so I can confirm what this part is myself

I can't seem to find a power input rating for the X270 I currently have on order. Of course, I know you can use a 65w with one, but it won't improve charge times if the amp input is limited. The store pages don't list the AC adapters output ratings by adapter and the C.S. chat reply was, "I don't have that information available." I know the output on the 45w is [email protected] simply because I already have one for my X240. Anyone with a 65w willing to post the output for me would be greatly appreciated. More appreciated would be anyone that happens to know what the X270's input ratings are so I can determine if charge times could be cut with a 65w. TIA

The information on the Lenovo m2 adaptor doesn't specify if it supports M key, nvme/PCIE or anything, General forums are also full of conflicting advice. So, what do I need to purchase, from Lenovo or elsewhere, to use this M2 2242 NVME drive inside my x270? Many thanks, and apologies if I have missed something obvious! regards r.

We do not see that brand of SSD over here in the US but as it is a 2.5 inch wide 7 mm thick SATA SSD it is virtually certain to work.  Yes you can install 16 gigs of RAM.  Service Manual DDR3-1600-MHz dual channel support Supports up to 16384-MB system RAM Memory modules (2, PC3, 12800, 1600-MHz): 8-GB memory module 670034-001 https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-PC3-12800-Notebooks-KTH-X3C-8G/dp/B0089MTP0W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1487796713&sr=8-2&keywords=670034-001 This is DDR3-1600 1.5 volt memory. The Kingston linked above will work.  Here is a link to the SATA cable and caddy for your laptop to use in the second bay: https://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_5&products_id=579&zenid=460053086b75bf15cd31e58e026a8e7d These are specific items and need to be designed for your specific model as there are mounting flanges and attachment  points that have to engage to hold the drive from moving inside the laptop.  I sense you are not in the US.

Hi folks! Would appreciate some input...Am moving from an old x120e (which runs windows 10 and works perfectly, except that I have gotten tired of its relatively weak processor (E-350 AMD) after 5 years) to the x270. Haven't bought it yet, but it is my target laptop. My question is primarily about build quality. As someone said in a different forum/thread, the x120e is built like a tank, albeit a small one. I fully agree. How is the x270? Is it as tough/tougher? I know the x270 is overall head and shoulders above the x120e in terms of display (I'm aiming for the FHD), processor (i5-7xxx), TPM security, etc etc. So my question is really only about how well it is built. Has anyone bought it?(a) How's the shake, rattle, flex, creak, and bend, if any. My only Thinkpad benchmark for build qual is the x120e and that one is Rock solid (capital R).(b) Does it run cool? I had to redo the thermal paste on the x120e after which it has behaved admirably for 4 years. I expect the x270 is quieter and cooler. Is this correct? Many thanks.

Hi Scutu The X270 is an older model PC, but as you're running Windows 8 successfully, it SHOULD upgrade to Windows 10. You can: 1. Image your hard drive, so if Windows 10 causes problems you can return exactly as it was, many weeks after upgrading   or 2. Upgrade to Windows 10. you can revert back to Windows 8 by going to Settings>Update & Security>Recovery. Follow the on screen instructions. There is a 30 day limit to do this.

Hello,  The x270 almost always hangs/freezes when handled. The laptop is about 2 years old but the issue was there right from the start. First, thought was that this is some sort of strange software issue I as owned x60, x61, x220 and had no issues as these things were literally indestructible, so I simply disregarded an hardware issue entirely for long time. Hence, it took us a while to realize the issue, this is also because the laptop usually sits on the table without anyone moving it, but this has changed recently.  As the days went we started to realize that the freeze only happens when the laptop is handed to some other person.  When the laptop is sitting still on the desk there is no issue and works as expected.  When facing the screen the bottom right corner around the fingerprint reader and/or below seems to the affected place. This is the most likely place to hold the laptop when it is handed to somebody.   Unfortunately, the laptop is not under warranty anymore. Any thoughts on what to do to resolve this issue? Thank you
