x240 fn key not working

Q: x240 fn key not working

Hello, In short, fn key does not work in lenovo x240 with latest bios update (2.35). I can swap fn and ctrl keys, and then function keys works via the ctrl key, but the fn key does not work as ctrl. I think this problem is OS independent (tried w10, w7, ubuntu). I have tried installing older bios for this model from the following page:https://support.lenovo.com/es/en/olddownloads/ds035950 But I can only install a few of the newest ones, as the older ones report that they are not compatibles with my system (though the readme says w7-w10 compatibility). No luck with any of the ones I could install. I also tried the hotkey features integration from here, no luck either:http://support.lenovo.com/es/en/downloads/ds029026 This question has been answered a gazillion times, but ill do it one more time as there is no solution posted anywhere. Examples:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X240-Fn-Key-not-responding/m-p/1551442/highli...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X240-Fn-key-not-working/m-p/1844428/highlight... Cheers and sorry for cloning this question one more time (I'm sure you can smell my desperation).

A:X240 with 7260 ac, the bluetooth not working.

I believe the X240 is shipped with the Bluetooth radio turned off.  To turn it on try Fn + F8.  That should bring up a screen that controls the power settings for the wireless radios.  If the bluetooth radio status is off, click on the button to the right to turn the radio on.  That should enable bluetooth on your laptop. If the bluetooth radio status is already on and not working then a call to tech support is in order.

I bought an used x240 8 months ago, a few months back it started not waking up from sleep but since I had work to do on it for university I left it that way and waited.Now that I'm done I'm trying to resolve the issue and it seems quite common. I tried everything I found online without success.Then I read that there were some bios updates and in the changelog the of the last one it says they fixed issues with sleep mode. Now I tried to install it from windows 10 and from usb since I usually only work with linux. The result is always the same:I boot inside the update utility, follow the instructions and when it reboots the lenovo splashscreen appears but it does not say anything about updating the bios (I saw it should on youtube). Needless to say, when I go inside the bios setup it indicates the version is still 2.37.I already tried changing bios settings in every possible way. If I can obtain a USB CD drive I'll try using that instead but in the meantime can anyone help me?

I have a Lenovo x240 with a Core i7-4600U using Intel HD Graphics 4400 and I am attaching a Monoprice MST Hub Mini Displayport to 2 HDMI adapter to the mini display port on the x240.

My brother got a X240 with a regular 1TB HDD, and I'm looking to help him with upgrading to an internal SSD for the OS/Apps. I first thought it just used a regular mSATA, but it apparently uses a new style called M.2.
 
Unfortunately I can't seem to find any info on what's supported, how large can they be, etc...
 
My local computer store has this for M.2 in 512gb size, would this fit in the X240?

A:X240 M.2 SSD

Howdy HiVolt,
 
I don't think that one will fit.  There are several different lengths of m.2 SSDs and the one in the X240 is 42mm.  The one you linked is longer than that.
 
Up until recently the highest capacity 42mm part was 128GB IIRC, but I think someone has come out with a 256GB 42mm unit.  [edit] I'm not able to verify that just now.  [more edit] Yes I am.  See post below.
 
Here's their compatibility list.  Please note I have no personal experience with this company.

However now it won?t turn on at all, except the lights over the F1 key, F4 key, and Fn are on. It wasn?t plugged in, but this has never happened before. I?ve also taken out the battery in a myriad of different methods people have suggested online but there?s been no mention of the lights still on.  If if I could get some help, that?d be great.

A:X250 Trackpad in an X240?

Hello XThinkpadUser, I am very sorry, but I advice You to forget this idea. There are most likely going to be some imcopatibilities in BIOS, and if not so, then some differences with the shape of the keyboard / trackpad connector. Plus you would need to replace the whole keyboard bezel. My opinion is based on the same glitch with old X200 and X201 - many people asked if X200 can be backwards upgraded with touchpad - it can be definitely not (afaik). Nobody can mark your question as impossible until first X250's arrive, but in your case I would hurry selling your X240 unit. Sooner you do it, you will get more paid for it... (believe me, you have my best sympathy, but I am in much more huge trap - what shall I my X220 change for?? :-) ) Regards,skrble

My Thinkpad X240 only comes with an external battery pack, no internal.  I usually power down my laptop at the end of the day.  The following day it won't power on.  I have to remove and re-insert back the battery pack before it turns on. If I power down and leave the laptop for 2hrs it will power up without me having to remove and re-insert back the battery pack.  But if I leave the laptop powered down for more than 3hrs I have to do the process to turn it back on. The battery charges normally, I usually get 4hrs out of the 6 cell pack. I ran the Lenovo Solution Center Comprehensive Tests, no errors found.  I also did the rest button but it won't power on without going thru the process of battery removal.

Hello 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.

A:Space bar key delay on X240

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Try this. Go to control panel -> Keyboard. Change the repeat delay to short and repeat rate to fast.
 
Try in different applications like Word/Notepad and in different browsers like Mozilla/chrome and check if the space key behaves in a similar way.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.
