X1C6 HDR Screen not recognized after reinstall

Q: X1C6 HDR Screen not recognized after reinstall

Dear all, I just had my SSD replaced by Lenovo after a firmware update nuked the drive. I used the Lenovo USB recovery key software to obtain the original image file for my laptop and just reinstalled & updated everything. However, i'm finding out that the monitor is now recognized by windows as a SDR monitor and not for the HDR capable display that it is. Where I could view the windows test video and select Youtube video's in EDGE before, now I can't. Also all the Wide Color Gamut options in Lenovo Vantage don't seem to have any effect anymore. Things i've tried- Windows is updated fully- All drivers are update through lenovo vantage- I manually reinstalled the monitor driver from the lenovo support website. The device drive shows the monitor as the Wide Gamut .... monitor This feature worked flawlessly before the SSD swap/reinstall. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Everyone, I just received my new X1 Carbon 6th Gen (20KHCTO1WW) and everything was running smoothly until yesterday when I did my first driver/firmware update via the Lenovo System Update App. A bunch of things got updated, including the BIOS, and after reboot everything was ok except for my keyboard (Apple USB, wired) that was not recognized by Windows (the logitech mouse is fine). I first thought it was a problem with Windows drivers and tried to play around the Device Manager to uninstall/reinstall drivers but after rebooting into the BIOS, I realized the keyboard was not working there either. Strange right?To me a basic USB Keyboard should work straight away during boot time and if it is not working in the BIOS, there is no chance Windows could do anything about it. So I guessed, this happened after the BIOS upgrade (to 1.34) and thus I tried to disable secure boot and run the legacy Bios but without success (by the way I don't see any visual difference between Lenovo legacy bios and UEFI is that normal?). => If some of you have clues about why it is not working, I would be thankful! Notes:- I've tried both USB ports and with other devices --> they are ok- The keyboard was working fine before the update- The keyboard is still working fine behind a Thunderbol dock- They keyboard is working fine on another computer (lenovo)- The kyeboard is not working on my wife's Lenovo X1 Yoga fully updated --> It seems related between to these m...

Hi.

I have a little issue with my RAID 0 array I created in my old computer. I had W2K SP4 installed, and the array was reading just fine. Then, when I had to swap out an old hard drive and reinstall W2K, the new install won't "see" the RAID 0 partitions (they aren't showing up in explorer). The BIOS sees the hard drives, and the RAID utility sees an active array and partitions, but I can't find the partitions on the array in the OS.

I don't know if this will help, but the RAID is onboard on a Gigabyte Mobo with the IT8212 chipset. The array was created using the Gigabyte RAID software utility.

Any ideas? Reinstall OS again?

Thanks for the help.

After reinstalling Windows XP Professional from an Original Windows License CD(not the computer's original), Windows will not recognize my keyboard which has it's own CD.

Previousely, I had to install the CD, uninstall the driver and reboot the system and I was good to go.

I wanted to install my printer (HP PSC 1210 all-in-one). I plugged it into my laptop and it recognized the printer and downloaded the proper driver for that model. For some reason, I deleted the printer. I unplugged it, restarted, and plugged it in again, but the laptop did not recognize it like it had before and did not download any driver at all.

I then did the printer wizard and downloaded the driver supporting the psc 1200 series. Although, that driver did not work.

I did more research and tried to delete any traces of the driver to see if vista would recognize my printer again, but it still did not.

My question is, is there a way to erase my driver history for my printer activity so that vista could recognize my printer again?

A:vista recognized & downloaded driver. now won't reinstall it

I think that the easiest way would be to do a system restore from a point prior to the first download. That should restore your system to the way it was prior to your initial attempt. Hope this works. System restore has always worked for me and is a awesome feature of Vista.

Good evening all>

A couple of days ago we had a power outage and when the power came back on and I tried to boot the computer, it would power on but would not boot.
I have the OS disks to reinstall and have used them in the past.

My computer is an older Dell OptiPlex GX150
Intel PentiumIII processor
a Maxtor 6L020L1 hard drive (C drive)
a WDC WD800JB-00JJCO (2nd hard drive)
512 MB ram
running XP pro.

It will power up fine, but when I tried to reinstall the OS it got to a window after loading XP where it said "please wait" after an hour of that I turned the computer off.
Now when I try to start it up, it comes up with needing to press F2 to enter setup. It now says there are no boot devices.
When I scroll down to boot order it shows the hard drive, floppy drive and next to the CD drive option is says not installed.
I tried using a floppy boot disk and it isn't recognized........
Any suggestions what I can do to try to get this to work?
Thanks in advance for what ever you can help me with.

I have done extensive searches all over this forum, google and dell support forums and haven't found an answer, so I'm hoping for help!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 and recently the hard drive started to go bad. I got a new computer and transferred all of my files. But, I was hoping to repair the old one enough for my daughter to use the internet and other basics. I did a drive utility and (supposedly) repaired the hard drive. I then went to reinstall Vista using the disks that came with the computer.

The problem is, once I am asked where I'd like to install Windows, I get the one option of "Disk 0 Unallocated Space, 232.9GB total and free space".

-When I click on that, I get "windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation".
-I click on "load driver" and put in the driver cd, but it either can't find a driver or doesn't install anything when it does find one.
-I went to the BIOS setup and disabled ACHI (as suggested elsewhere).
-I've run all the system repair things I can find
-There is only the "new" option and when I click on it and then apply the default size, it says "failed to create a new partition on the selected unused space [error: 0x80042453]". I've tried this with the driver disk and the system disk each installed.

My son's laptop 'died' earlier this week. Screen just went blank. In the end, I decided to rebuild the drive.
After much difficulty, I managed to reinstall the OS (Windows 10) and all seemed well.
Oh, except the reinstall does not provide even WiFi drivers at a minumum - so after figuring that out I had to dig that up too on another computer and transfer/install. Problems over... I thought.
As the XPS went on its way to update drivers - the screen suddenly went blank (hello! haven't we met before?)... made some melodious beeps and chirps as though trying to communicate (it wasn't morse code) and now the computer continues to hum away (the fans?) with that.... black screen.
Before I wipe everything and re-install, again, and perhaps let the machine run with old drivers at the risk of malicious attacks etc (small price to pay for a 'working' computer I suppose), might anyone know of solutions to this problem?
With thanks in advance.
Signed,
Frustrated but Hopeful

A:Dell XPS 13 Black Screen - cause for OS reinstall - happened again after reinstall during driver updates

Hi ASHAROM,
What is the exact system model?
Is there any damage / liquid spillage on the system?
For the beeps, first we need to check if the HW is functional:
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
Drivers: If you are using a retail image of Win 10 OS, it will contain only the OS installation files, since the OS is generic. The hardware on each system would differ and hence, the drivers need to be reinstalled. If you are using a recovery image for your system, then it would contain the required drivers with the OS image.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Long story short. I had Lenovo replace my top case because the left click button wasn't working. Yes, they replaced the entire top case including keyboard and pointer. They did not replace the trackpad though.  So the keyboard that originally came with my laptop which was built in Nov 2018, was a lot stiffer. I was getting a lot of mistype due to me not applying enough pressure. This replacement keyboard though, oh my, it's perfect! The strokes are a lot softer and my typing accuracy went way up.  If you do not like your keyboard for some reason, you should maybe goto a Costco and bring your laptop to do a compare. I think they are not using the same supplier for some of these keyboards. I like my replacement one a lot more than the original one that came with the laptop.

I'm posting this for others considering this model.  I was cautious given all the complaints about heat, fan, throttling, TB3 Dock issues, etc., etc. After several days setting it up and using it and one day with TB3 Dock connected, I have nothing but positive to report.  It came with 1.22 BIOS and I'm hesitant to update as no problems are evident.  I will ask in a separate thread about that. Temps run between 50 and 70 Centigrade.  A bit warmer than my P50, but I guess still in normal range.  Fan does run, probably at lower speed.  I can't hear it unless I put my ear close or feel the hot air coming out of the right side.  I am using only a single monitor connected to the TB3 Dock.  I tried using the laptop screen and the monitor as extended (dual monitors) and it worked fine.  I'm connecting the monitor to the Dock by HDMI.  I ran the X1 at work yesterday on battery.  9:00am to 6:00pm and still had 30% left!  Moderate use.  I'm not always on the computer at work, but still....! Anyway, I would have appreciated a post like this when I decided to take the risk and order one.  I know forums typically only have problems, but it looked like worse than usual.  I hope this is reassuring to someone. Cheers!

I've read several posts regarding the X1C6 & the HDR screen and its pretty tempting to grab right now with the fantastic Lenovo sales prices...but wanted an opinion on a few things about it or whether I should just wait for the X1C7? 1) Right now, I can get the WQHD (matte) w/512GB SSD or the HDR w/1TB SSD for REALLY great prices with the current Lenovo sales. Price really isn't an issue for me give the current great prices. I could order an HDR now since I can return it up until 1/15/19 with the holiday return policy...and wait until CES in January to see if they put a matte screen on the X1C7's HDR option. Would be a small return window I guess?Thoughts? 2) The main debate that I have, as does everyone it seems, is whether to get the X1C6 HDR or not given:a) the better qualityb) the glossy v matte debate (I have always had matte but also like quality for photo editing and everyone RAVES about this screen)c) the extra taxing the HDR puts on the machine overall (throttling, etc.)d) the loss of additional battery life due to the HDRI have read where at least the last two issues have been quelled some with software/BIOS updates. Thoughts?3) Matte screen protector... Would I lose a lot of the quality benefits of the HDR with one on (ie, would it degrade it to a level higher/lower than a WQHD 300 nit)?4) I plan to drive either two 24" monitors, or one 34/38" ultra-wide, with this machine.

This post is partially to request assistance and partially to voice aggravation and disappointment. My old laptop was failing and I was in need of one for travel with WWAN capability. I initially bought an X1C6 that showed the WWAN card as enabled in BIOS. When I found out that the card was not present, I returned the laptop. After doing further research, I settled on a T480s that was WWAN upgradable, expectating a wait for the EM7565 with FRU 01AX762. Now the Fibocom L850-GL with FRU 01AX786 is available for new builds, but I cannot find where to buy it on the site or elsewhere; if this is not simply due to me being unable to navigate the poorly-designed Lenovo site, it effectively punishes anyone who ordered early. Finally, I tried my old EM7345 with FRU 04X6014 and encountered the 1802 error for an unauthorized device. Researching that further led to understand that Lenovo uses a whitelist - another punishment. I am now ready to return this laptop as well unless I can make some progress before traveling again. I would not be surprised if a class-action lawsuit were brought against Lenovo and any other manufacturers restricting individuals from making use of their own legitimately purchased hardware, especially when false or incomplete information is pushed by the company. If anyone knows where to obtain either LTE card, I would appreciate it.

A:X1C6/T480s WWAN difficulties

Hello,I recently picked up a 6th gen X1 Carbon and have been having intermittent issues with a second monitor connected via the USB-C port.I currently have two displays set up, both Acer 20" with DVI and VGA female ports. One monitor is connected via HDMI out to DVI in and the second via the USB-C out to converter (VGA in) and then out to monitor VGA. Most of the time this works fine and I've been able to set up to get full HD on each. Intermittently though the right monitor (USB-C>VGA>VGA) loses signal prompted by moving some application (eg, FF browser, VLC) to the second monitor, but this doesn't happen with all applications nor even given applications each time. As this only happens when prompted by moving an application I'm guessing this is some driver/hardware quirk.I tried a Google search as well as pouring over the forum but didn't turn up much. Are there known issues with dual displays on the X1C6 and/or any known remedies? Also, are there generally preferred out ports people use to connect dual external monitors? HDMI seemed like the natural first choice but I'm not sure if there's a preference otherwise from the bevy of USB ports.Regards,Chris

I've bought an X1C6 this October (Core i5-8250U/8/256/Win10Pro), and after several days the sound started disappearing. The symptoms are:- the problem may appear while running any program that streams or plays video, or even a game;- the problem usually appears when the sound is muted, but not always;- when it happens, the File Explorer freezes (although apps may run) and I can't change the sound volume and the diode on the F1 buttons is always ON, whatever I do;- after several seconds the freeze goes, and I am able to change the volume levels again both with the Fn buttons and the slider in the tray, but there's no sound. The OS thinks the volume is being changed and shows volume levels changing when playing any sound;- sound works normally via the HDMI. The system restart may help, only after several days, it stops helping.Then the reset button may help, or it may not.The Windows reset doesn't help at all. Tried that a couple of times.I tried running Ubuntu from a liveUSB, the symptoms are the same.I even installed the OS anew (used the Lenovo USB Recovery Tool trying to fix another problem) - that didn't help either. I asked the local Lenovo support to send me a new motherboard, and they did, only the service decided it was the audio card that's separate from the motherboard (I didn't know it at the time, but why didn't support think of that?) We put my audio card back and it worked again for several days until it stopped again.

I don't have to have an ultraslim if a non-slim is the best quality/ price. I'd be grateful if you wise ones have any drive suggestions or warnings. Cheers! Ian

I have an X1 Carbon 6th Gen with a strange Bluetooth problem. When playing audio through a Bluetooth device, the audio stream will frequently go silent for varying periods of time. Sometimes it's for only a few seconds, and then the unplayed audio will play very quickly before normal playback resumes. More frequently, though, audio simply drops out for multiple minutes, then resumes as though nothing had happened. I have not found any events in Event Viewer that correspond to the failures. The Bluetooth device remains paired throughout the audio silence, according to Windows settings. It is not restricted to any particular program, as the audio failures happen whether playing something in iTunes, Chrome, or anywhere else. It affects all audio on the system when audio drops out, not just the audio from that application; system sounds cannot be heard during the silent period. The volume bars in the mixer continue to move, though, even while the audio cannot be heard. The Windows audio troubleshooter does not detect any problems during the period of silence. Things I have tried:running the Windows audio troubleshooter - does nothingusing a different Bluetooth audio device - tried both Apple AirPods and Beats Studio 3 headphonesupdating the Bluetooth drivers - current version installed is 20.90.0.3, which is the latest available from Intel's website; also tried 20.70, which is what Lenovo Vantage offeredAny insight would be appreciated.

Hey everyone, I am trying to update the BIOS to v1.31 on my new X1C6 running Ubuntu 18.04 to enable S3 deep sleep. When I run the command 'fwupdmgr update' as described in many online guides, I get the message 'Not compatible with firmware version 0.1.15, requires >= 0.1.27'. Any ideas on how to update the firmware to allow the BIOS update? I can't find any information on the forums. Thanks!

Everything seems to be running fine.  Temps between 50 and 70 C, both standalone and docked to TB3 Dock.  Anything in 1.25 that would suggest I should update? Thanks,

Hi there, i recently bought a new X1C6 with i7 8550. I wanted to use it for university and as a midrange gaming station (egpu) at home. But my plans started to fail as i got fps drops in almost all games. I did some information gathering and saw the following: At first the CPU starts to boost to pl2 (29W) for 30s or so. After that it drops the TDP to 23W (thats pl1). After a while i can see in hwinfo64 that the pl1 slowly starts to drop to 13W without any reason! My temps are pretty pretty good even at 29W it barely touches 90C and at 23W it hovers between 70 and 75C.Is this normal behavior of U-CPUs?Can i do something to prevent dropping?

I've only had kaptop for  a week, but I noticed yesterday the screen flickered in this  same distortion for a split second. I was greeted by this screen today when unlocking my laptop. The Windows 10 lockscreen was displayed as normal. The screen stayed this way until I closed the lid and unlocked it again, where it resumed normality. edit: This seems to have something to do with the Netflix application. Using it can prompt this distortion briefly. Also when closing the laptop whilst video is playing, then the permanent distortion can be introduced. VIDEO - https://streamable.com/yp9wu          <--- this does not happen when not using the netflix app, works as normal.

Looking at the HMM for my 20KH I am trying to understand what the 'Proximity sensor connector' (p.54 in HMM) is for? It appears to connect the WLAN to the audio card? Why is this?  I am trying to work out if this is the cause of some interference I am experiencing when using the audio jack on this laptop.

I have a relatively recent P50 with Win 10 Pro.  Any chance I could image the drive and restore to a new X1C6 and save a weekend?

Greetings fellow Thinkpadders. I received my X1C6 about two weeks ago, and all is well except the fingerprint reader. I am patched up to date according to both Windows Update and Vantage, and that has included two BIOS updates since I first unboxed it. The fingerprint reader does not come back after a sleep or hibernate. That is, if I Restart, I can log in with my fingerprint -- the white LED is on and so forth. But if I suspend and resume, no white LED, and fingerprint doesn't work at Windows Logon -- I have to use my PIN or password. Vantage's hardware scan shows nothing wrong. Any hints or advice appreciated. Serial# PF0YSFED, Product# 20KH002KUS, BIOS N23ET37W 1.12, Windows 10.0.16299 (Build 16299)
