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.

Hi everyone, I'm a student and planning to buy the Campus version of the Thinkpad T480s with the Nvidia chip. It doesn't come with a WWAN module, but I'd like to add one. Information on that topic seems sparse and I tried to look for M.2 slot WWAN modules at different online stores. I found a few ones, namely- Huawei ME906S, listed to be compatible with 2016 Thinkpads- Sierra EM7455, listed to be compatible with the *70 series Thinkpads- Fibocom L831-EA (Intel XMM 7160), listed to be compatible with *70 series Thinkpads According to this reddit, at least the Huawei and Sierra ones are incompatible unauthorized for a T480s which, if true, is simply inconvenient, annoying and disappointing. As I mentioned above, buying a Thinkpad with a pre-installed LTE module is not an option because I'd like to have the Nvidia chip and am buying a Lenovo Campus Thinkpad which comes at a reduced price (and in Germany, it's the only way to get one with an Nvidia chip). As the Lenovo configurator and the T480s platform specifications indicate, the Fibocom L830-EB (Intel XMM 7262) and Fibocom L850-GL (Intel XMM 7360) are officially used and should definitely be compatible. However, I can't find them anywhere except pre-configured with a Thinkpad, which is not an option for me. Can anyone please help me with either of the following:- Is the Fibocom L831-EA (Intel XMM 7160) authorized for and compatible with the T480s?- Is there any place where I can get a Fibocom L83...

Hi All,  With reference to https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X230-Laptop-4G-LTE-in-the-UK/m-p/2258754#M681... - trying to find a Lenovo FRU 04W3821 is like trying to find Rocking Horse doodah.... What other options are there for UK based WWAN cards ? i.e. the next best thing ? I'd love to have my x230 be 4G capable, however, I'd settle for a decent, and working 3G.I've got the cables internally - just not the card. I've found one that is being advertised as ...

Hello, I just ordered a second-hand T470 with a 256gb PCIe SSD and I plan on upgrading to a 500gb or 512gb SSD but trying to decide which way to go. I'm quite a novice regarding this stuff, so please forgive me. I think I read somewhere that due to the way the drive is connected a M.2 PCIe SSD may not be noticeably any better than a 2.5 SSD. Would that be correct?  I would be doing mostly basic small business computing- Excel (nothing complicated), Quickbooks, multiple browsers, Outlook, email, etc. The laptop is a t470, FHD touchscreen, i5-7300, 8gb, 256gb PCIe and I plan on adding and utilizing a WWAN card.I currently have a 3-yr old Samsung 840EVO 2.5 SSD in my T420 that I could possibly just use or could purchase a new Samsung 850EVO/Pro 2.5 SSD or 960EVO/ Pro M.2 PCIe. Any suggestions? Value is a factor. Also, I've read that only certain part numbers of the EM7455 WWAN card will work with the newer T470. Can anyone verify what I need to look for? Thanks for your help

My TPY 260 hasn't arrived yet I am just wondering if anyone here has tried this?The WWAN card uses the same M.2 connector as the regular SSD except it is B-keyed which means it would only fit a SATA SSD. Since WWAN (LTE) is not even an option at the moment I would like to be able to make use of this slot if I can.

Hi, WWAN and WLAN are two different things and currently you are using WLAN (wifi) but not WWAN. And probably your machine does not have WWAN module.

A:No WWAN capability for Yoga 260?!

Hello TD22, welcome to the community,
 
The user guides are generic and cover all possible system configurations, the same applies to harware maintenance manuals, and may feature options which are not present on your particular system.
 
The early Yoga 260s were not equipped with WWAN or WWAN antennae because at that time no international agency approvals had been received for the transmit and receive functions. Systems which are agency qualified may have WWAN integrated at the factory or be WWAN ready with factory installed antennae but no WWAN module.

A:Aftermarket WWAN P-series?

You can order the WWan card from Lenovo at any time and install it yourself. I don't know about any aftermarket WWan card. The ability to do mobile broadband has become an indispensible part of my development station (P50). When I'm in my trusted environment (ie, my office) I have the WWan disabled. But when I'm at a client facility there are many times that I don't want the security exposure of logging into their wireless and can resort to the WWan.  Last spring, I went on a "roadie" and many of the hotels I stayed in did not even have password protected wireless. It was nice to get a little work done without worrying about compromising my entire operation. The WWan is a stable, secure, and fairly inexpensive connection for a variety of situations. Couldn't live without it now!

Hello everybody. I live in South Africa. We have a budding LTE network. I purchased a Sierra Air Prime MC7710 WWAN card. Mainly for it's supported frequency ranges on 3G and partially for its LTE support. It is not whitelisted in the BIOS (2.50). There has been an upgrade to the T430, X230 etc. in January 2013, to whitelist this card see:  http://support.lenovo.com/es_BO/detail.page?DocID=UM015721 . It is used a lot in Europe - same frequency ranges as in South Africa. Currently, short of buying an outdated Ericsson cad I have no way to get internal WWAN on this notebook. Real pity since it's brilliant in all other regards. My question to the board and Lenovo support is if there is any likelyhood of this card being whitelisted in a BIOS update not too far down the line, or if I have to resort to the BIOS hacks which essentially bypass the whitelist checking. I can probably do the BIOS mod, albeit fairly risky from what I gather. It's also my main and only workmachine, so I can't really afford downtime if I mess it up. Are there other W530 users which need this card? Maybe collectively bringing it to the attention of Lenovo might get things moving. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks,Malte 

A:W530 with MC7710 WWAN

Hi Malte, I have the same problem or doubt with my T420s. On http://www.lenovoquickpick.com/ I find that the Sierra MC7700 and 7750 are available from Lenovo, so I guess they are whitelisterd. But for Europe I need the MC7710. And this link http://support.lenovo.com/es_BO/detail.page?DocID=UM015721 confirms that for the W530 the MC7710 is not approved, because it is not in. But the T420s is not in the list of laptops anyway, only the successor T430s and for this one the link shows that the MC7710 is suited. Anyway, your call to Lenovo to make sure the MC7710 works for the W530 I would like to endorse. If in this action the can also give the T420s a glance, that would help me greatly of course. Any news or support info is welcomed. Regards, Francine Lenovo Thinkpad T420s 4174PEG with SAMSUNG PRO 840 SSD, 16Gb Kingston DDR memory

A:X250 - WWAN module

EM7455 isn't a whitelisted WWAN module for your X250 - it was whitelisted for Skylake's ThinkPad generation devices. There are two dedicated WWAN modules for your device:- FRU: 04W3842, Ericsson N5321 HSPA+ 21Mbps M.2 WWAN.- FRU: 04X6014, Sierra EM7345 LTE/HSPA+ 42Mbps M.2 Card. You must buy a module with correct FRU on label. There are generic modules available on the market, but they won't work with your X250, as BIOS will detect them as unauthorized devices.

I'm afraid I'm not qualified to recommend one for your region, but hopefully this gets you started.

RELEVANCY SCORE 34.8

I bought a T470 with an onboard 256gb PCIe SSD. Instead of swapping it out with a 1TB SSD, I thought I might simply use it as the boot drive and add a 1TB 2242 SSD to the WWAN slot. I have seen posts about swapping SSD and some mentioning the WWAN (but mostly regarding the BIOS driver and machine not recognizing 2nd drive), but I am unclear if I can use the onboard 256gb PCIe SSD as my boot drive and to store my programs, and can also simply add another SSD (2242 size or otherwise) in the WWAN slot as my "data" drive. If the answer is yes, and I believe it very well may be based on my reading of other posts, do I need the additional cable (Part FRU 00UR495)? Finally, how would I actually hook up the 2nd SSD (assuming it is the 2242 size)? Thank you in advance. -josh
