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.)

Like the title says, hard drive failure. Replaced with SSD How the flop do I get the recovery media? Windows refers you to the manufacture. Lenovo doesnt offer download. Oh and I called customer support, they're not shipping disks!!!! The phone tech had no idea how to buy online? Why should I even have to buy? I just want to download recovery media onto a USB!

Last night I unplugged and took the battery out after I spilled water on the keyboard (everything was still running).  Didn't smell anything fried, but I can't get any lights to come on anymore.   Unplugged the internal battery and removed all I could, saw a few drops of water, not where I thought it would matter, but it seems DEAD.So now I'm looking for replacment suggestions. It would be nice if I could reuse my upgrades, such as the 840 Evo MZMTE 250 and memory upgrades.   Although I notice that prices have come way down since 2015.  Still would be nice to be able to use the T530 for spare parts.Was so happy with the speed after I got the SSD and upgraded memory to 16gb, but only know that it was an I-7, can't access my records.I like the feel of the keyboard and sure appreciate that it lasted 4 years (was a refurb wit 3-year Lenovo warranty).  I could go for another T530, but want a warranty (refurb ok) and don't see much.Any suggestions for newer models in $500 range (refurb)?No gaming, but I often have gazillions of browser windows and multiple apps going.Thanks!

My laptop does not boot and the white LED blips 8 times and then 1 flash. I was told by a technician that the LED code means my laptop has a bad mother board. The technician told me that I would have to have it serviced by an authorized HP technician and I would not be able to replace the mother board on my own. Is there any reason that I would not be able to purchase a mother board for my laptop and install it myself?

A:Which one to choose - ThinkPad W520 or T530?

For those tasks you wouldn't need a Core i7 or discrete graphics, save yourself some money and go for the T530.The only disadvantage would be 1600x900 instead of 1920x1080, but it would be hard to see the difference.

Ok, so here's a long story. Purchased a Thinkpad T530 5 years ago. Configured it with two drives that came from Lenovo (one in main HDD bay, another one in Ultrabay - one was IIRC Hitachi and the other one Toshiba, can't remember which was installed in which bay). OS was Windows 8 Home (installed on HDD in main bay) which I sported for a only few weeks since I was confronted with Ultrabay HDD constantly (every 5-10 minutes) parking its head (clicking noise). Being unable to successfully resolve the issue I decided to ditch Windows 8 and install Windows XP 32-bit (also on the main bay HDD). Problem? Gone. In the meantime, I decided to sport a dual-boot system and installed Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)  on the Ultrabay HDD (in the meantime I replaced the Ultrabay HDD that came from Lenovo with a WD 7500BPKT drive). Problem? None whatsoever, probably because the HDD was constantly in use since it had a OS (which became my main OS) installed on it. Fast forward to a few days ago. Bought a Crucial MX300 2TB 2.5'' SSD and installed it into the main HDD bay. Purchased a SAMSUNG 850 EVO mSATA SSD and installed it into the mPCIE slot. Left the WD 7500BPKT HDD in Ultrabay. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) onto Samsung mSATA SSD and? Problem with Ultrabay HDD constantly (not as frequently as other people using AHCI+Windows+Intel Rapid Storage drivers were reporting though - once every 5-10 minutes in my case vs once every minute or so as reported by other users) parkin...

Greetings - I have a Lenovo T530 Laptop - Windows 10 installed. Each time I attempt to shut down the laptop, the laptop automatically restarts itself. I replaced that power jack because the power button also wasn't working either. I had this same problem regardless of whether Windows 7 or 10 was on it. I have 10 and loaded most Lenovo Drivers, including any with management, chipset. Also, the power options are reset to default - that didn't make any difference either. According to the diagnostics tests, there are no hardware issues. It is only happening on this particular T530 - not have been able to replicate the same problem on others. Any ideas?? Thank you in advance!

I've been trying to find a solution for two full dsays now.My problem:Yesterday morning my t530 windows 10 (upgrade from 8.1) did not open normally. Slow booting and once in Windows, no more audio or wifi or access to startup menu. I did have two upgrades this week, one from Windows 10 and another for the new Bitdefender 2017 upgrade which I accepted. I don't know for sure if there is a link but I suspect there is. I have intented doing a refresh, reset from the diagnostic page and form the prompt page a scan and scannow but to no avail. I downloaded on a bootable USB flash drive rufus windows 10. I have disables secure boot and enabled legacy. When I do an F12 I see the nane of my USB HDD in the list, but when i press enter it just goes back to the top the Boot Menu screen to Windows Boot manager. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

A:T530 won't boot from USB flash drive -- ThinkPad

I wouldn't use rufus.  I suggest making the USB stick in UEFI mode from a computer running with a UEFI boot using the MS media creation tool:

You can boot from the USB stick in UEFI mode.

However, I have acquired a 2nd-hand extended battery that IS a genuine Lenovo battery, and when my T530 boots up, it still complains that the battery is not authorised and will not charge. Sure enough, it does not charge. Does anyone know why this would be? The battery is a 8.4 Ah, 94Wh. FRU 42T4969 ASM 42T4802, registered Lenovo product. Many thanks, Ian

A:Thinkpad T530 not starting in regular mode

Most likely a bad driver since in Safe Mode windows uses generic drivers.   My guess would be the video driver, so while in Safe Mode, use device manager to uninstall the existing video driver and start clean. Right click on Start and select Device Manager or Start >> Run and type: devmgmt.msc  and press EnterClick on Display Adapters to openRight Click on the Intel HD Graphics and select Uninstall,  making sure to check the box to "Delete the driver software for this device".RebootIf it was the video driver, then Windows should boot normally using a generic driver, and then download and install a new driver via Windows Update. Since it just started, running a disk check (chkdsk) would be a good idea too.Right Click on Start and select Command Prompt (Admin) and press EnterIn the Command Prompt (Admin) window, type:   chkdsk C: /f   and press EnterPress Y to accept scheduling scan for next bootReboot and it will run at startupGood Luck,

Not only will BIOS be different but drivers for the important things may as well.

You can minimize the problem by buying the same model but I suspect you want to upgrade.

One time such drive was successfully connected. After this one time, after entering the disk it is in a moment disconnected or there is no sign that I connected it (even no sound). The disk normally works on other USB ports.With a pendrive only 1GB, it was the same.The smastphone also only plugs in so that it only powers it, but it does not shot its disk or it shows it, but it is unavailable to enter it.So I bought another ExpresCard card with 2 USB3.0, this time from 4World company.

Hi. I can't get the webcam to work. I got this laptop around mid June of this year. Tried to use the webcam for the first time today, Nothing. My device manager doesn't even list a camera. I tried to intall the driver (twice) to see if that would help, but as far as I can see, it's had exactly 0 effect. I downloaded the lenovo settings app, and it's not there, either. At least, I see no setting options for it. But this model of laptop supposedly has a webcam built in, and my model looks pretty much exactly like the others I see on google images, except for a circly light thing in the strip where the camera is supposed to be. I have no idea what the hardware/wiring should even look like so I can't help there. I've been at this for hours.

I tried all the blue screen functions including refresh whilst maintaining files. None worked.I also have a T470 with Windows 10 installed.I would like to download the files from the T530 hard drive before reinstalling Windows 10. I do not have an external hard drive caddy and would rather not have the expense of buying one - otherwise I would just put the drive in that and copy the files.I would like to put the SSD hard drive from the T470 into the main bay of the T530 to see whether it all works ok and if so to put the the old hard drive from the T530 in a caddy in the ultrabay to get the files off it, before then reinstalling it using a system image on a portable hard drive. Will this scheme work? Can I take the hard drive from the T470 and put it in the T530 and expect the T530 to function? Can I do any damage thereby? Thanks for your help Dan

When I buy my P70 I want to replace the DVD drive with an SSD enclosure. Is the following Lenovo product what I need to buy to replace the DVD drive of the P70 with a caddy that can house an SSD? Does the caddy below come with all the cables and padding neccesary to secure as SSD drive in lieu of the DVD drive? Does it ship with a DVD bezel to cover the enclosure? Has annyone used this kit? It's really a shame the configurator has no option to buy the P70 without an optical drive and with just an SSD caddy in its place. I have not used an optical disk in a laptop in years. http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/itemdetails/4XB0L63274/460/7EF7D50A5A7047049A355BF42AAF3C5C I did find a PDF describing this kit but there is no mention of a bezel or cover so I'm wonder if the existing bezel from the DVD drive needs to be yanked out and installed on this bracket. https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/options_iso/tp_mobile_ws_storage_kit_4xb0l63274.pdf

No. That's for the HDD bay. Barely useful for P70 owners who only got m2 drives; it is barely needed other than making a snugger fit. For P50 owners it's necessary. What you want is part 00NY314 but you won't find it on the Lenovo store. You have to call into the services and parts department to order it (I can't even find it by the online lookup in that division.) It looks like the DVD drive if you pulled it out but the top is open where you put the hard drive in and the outside edge is smooth to match the bezel.

I just get my P1 repaired bacause of headphone jack. They replaced my motherboard but now I find I cannot charge the battery. BTW, the engineer came to my home the first time bring a total WRONG MOTHERBOARD, they find the difference after tearing down everything. So after doing research I know the problem is a power problem (laptop not charging or turning on before doing a bunch of manipulations ).Is there any way I can solve this problem without calling their support team? As I do not want to wait and find another issue happen after they leave...

This is a peer-to-peer forum.  Other posters (like me) are customers like you and generally not Lenovo employees.

Hi folks.I bought a used Thinkpad L520 some months ago and was very disappointed by the touch pad surface. I was used to the smooth, accurate touch pad on the T61 series - especially the T61p has a wonderful one. The L520 touch pad is inaccurate and it is difficult to move the cursor smoothly. Why Lenovo has replaced the good-working old pad is a riddle. But I have this laptop, so can anyone tell me if it is possible to replace the pebbled touch pad with a smooth one? Or is it possible to make the movement more smooth in the driver?

A:Thinkpad Edge S430 - is it possible to replace the hdd with a ssd?

Hello Ecodot,Yes, it is possible to switch out the HDD with a SDD. Depending on the S430 you have you can do a mSATA SDD(S430 Optimus) or SDD.If you would like to look more into the type here is a helpful link(S430 psref): http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/edgebook_WE.pdf

Hi, I just attempted to replace my touchscreen for the second time, previously replaced the screen however the wrong screen had been delivered, so I had to do install again once the correct scree was delivered, first install went fine, just not a touchscreen display, everything else worked fine. However during the installation of the correct Full HD Touchscreen i realized I had not shut off the power, so I forced a shut down prior to disconnecting the display ribbon, completed the installation of the new touchscreen, however when i tried to restart laptop nothing happened, and no lights were on, computer does nothing. I reinstalled the old touchscreen display that was known to be working, but still the computer did nothing.  Tried disconnecting the Battery but with no success, it appears as if a fuse was blown because theres no sign of power, not sure if these have fuses, but thats what is seems like. Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.   Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 Microsoft Windows Full HD Touch Screen Display 

A:Thinkpad does nothing after attempt to Replace Touch Screen

Hello and welcome,
 
By "so I forced a shut down" do you mean you held down to power button to force a shutdown, or did you go to BIOS and disable the battery?
 
If the latter, it won't power up until the AC charger is connected.  You're probably well past trying that but I had to ask...
 
Z.
