T450s broken keycap

Q: T450s broken keycap

Hi, i have a problem on my T450s's LEFT CTRL keycap. A couple days ago it was broken. I don't want to buy brand new all keyboard. I seek for only a one keycap. I already contacted some single key seller. Such as quikfixlaptopkeys.com, laptopkey.com, laptopkey.eu, laptop-keys.com. Unfortunately, they don't have this LEFT CTRL keycap in their warehouses. My second thought was buy a LEFT SHIFT keycap because the label is not important for me, just try to that key is works. However all these sellers are using US keyboard and my keyboard layout is Turkish-Q, so keycap sizes are not same on the US keyboard. I will attach a photo, you can check. Please anybody can give me an idea to solve this situation. Without buying a new keyboard. Even 3d model for this LEFT CTRL keycap, i can produce via 3d printer.

Hi everyone.Unfortunately looking for advice for my t450s. I had it running last night, transferring items from an SD card onto a network drive. It was plugged into the AC. I just left it to transfer as it was around 20gb and I saw the keyboard flash in the corner of my eye and got a blue screen saying "page fault in non paged area". The computer restarted several times and resulted in the same blue screen and same fault. It tried to go through automatic recovery but that failed with a blue screen and the same fault. I just left the computer for 10 minutes hoping it would sort itself out, but it didn't, just looping with various blue screen faults (IRQL less or not equal, uxc01000.sys failure - and others I didn't manage to get a photo of)  I dug out my Lenovo recovery discs, the same fault when booting from CD, after 10 seconds or so "page fault in non paged area".  So from there I have tried disabling various items in the BIOS such as trackpad and removing all my USB and SD card etc. Not every time I turned it on it had the same fault, sometimes would hang on POST, sometimes on loading windows (10) sometimes fan on full speed and sometimes fan off. And now, when I turn the laptop on nothing happens. The power light comes on, sometimes the fan goes to full speed sometimes it does not but nothing happens after that. No beeps, nothing on the screen - nothing. I have tried the following:- removing external, internal and CMOS battery and waitin... Read more

Hello there,My down arrow key unexpectedly just crashed tonight, when I was just applying usual/normal pressure on it while working. I have never had problems with keyboards like this before, and I did not expect it from a Thinkpad. I have read on another forum that keys are not User Replacable, but I would not like to buy it from some laptop key websites, when it is a material failure. What are my options to get a replacement?Many thanks for your help!

A:T450s keyboard down arrow key broken

Lenovo does not sell the individual keys, but if it is still under warranty, they probably would replace the entire keyboard.  If it were me, I would just order a new key from Laptop keys for the $6.95 USD and be done with it, but if Lenovo would come to me to do the repair, or I could take it to a local repair center to get if fixed under warranty, I would take the new keyboard, but I would send NOT send my laptop off to some repair center over one key. Lenovo Thinkpad T450SGENUINE LAPTOP KEYBOARD REPLACEMENT KEY KIThttp://www.laptopkey.com/KeyboardKeys.php/Lenovo/Thinkpad/T450S Cheers,

My mobile phone fell on my Lenovo Thinkpad T450s while I was using it, and now the lefthand side of my T450s touch screen is cracked. The screen started acting like a finger was pressing it most of the time and would not work otherwise, so I turned the touch screen functionality off.
 
But I'm thinking about replacing the screen even though it's working fine for now and I can see everything; I just don't like that it has long crack marks on the lefthand side and would like the touch functionality to work. I started looking into how to replace it (I'd like to do it myself), and I'm not sure really what I need to buy. I don't know if it's possible to just get the touch panel replaced or if I have to do the LCD screen and touch panel. Also, I have not taken anything apart, so I don't know the part # of my screen for sure yet. I downloaded something from the Lenovo site that told me my ultrabook is Machine Type Model 20BX001MUS and Serial # PC******.
 
Would I need to buy this? Is this one the same? Can I just get a touch panel/digitizer screen somewhere?
 
Thanks for any help.

I broke the "I" keycap on my laptop when it started popping out. I, being stupid, tried to jam it back in but broke the tabs on the keycap itself. (Side note: I tried to gorilla glue the keycap to the hinge, but it didn't do anything) I found a keycap on laptopkey.com, but it's $22. Are there any other sites that I'm probably glossing over that sell it for cheaper?

A:IE6 broken, Norton broken, other programs broken

Hi again,

I think I may have semi-repaired the problem. I re-installed Norton, and now it is no longer broken I think--the system tray icon is there and auto-protect works. No viruses were detected however. IEXPLORER.exe no longer runs with start-up, and it no longer re-appears as well, BUT internet explorer STILL does not work. Basically, I open it, the browser window opens, it tries to load, but then it just simply stops trying to load and effectively freezes. I have to close it through the task manager. No error message pops up, it's just a blank browser window.

I just tried installing IE7 to perhaps fix the problem, but IE7 would not install all the way so it's still broken. Here's an updated HJT log; thank you!

If you think this story is too long, please jump to the end for the executive summary. I bought a Thinkpad Yoga 15 a little over a year ago. I live in Belgium, but close to the Netherlands and Germany border. I bought my laptop in Germany as it was the only place in a 200 km radius that had the laptop on display. After slightly more than a year, the middle part of the power connector on the machine broke. Not because of a fall or something else, just daily use. The machine itself basically moves from the downstairs desk to the upstairs desk, so the only thing that happens that the power cord is removed and reinserted at its new station. This is covered under European Warranty Law, but as I had a 3YR NBD Warranty Extension, I expected this to be fixed without problems. I created a ticket through the (rather archaic) ticketinterface, and expected to be contacted the next day. However, it took 7 days for an IBM Global Services employee, to whom Lenovo apparently outsourced their technical support, to contact me. I was asked to provide some photographs of the problem and to e-mail them to the support person ? he neglected to provide an e-mail address. The ticket system does not support attachments. As a workaround, I uploaded the pictures to my Google Drive and put the link in the ticket tool. This was not seen by the support person, who had told me that a technician would stop by the next day. I made sure there was someone home, but no technician showed up. This was, it turned... Read more

hello,

my situation:

I have a Compaq V6000 notebook. Several months ago it started to only charge when I placed the power cord in the right position. It keeps getting harder to find the right position. I was told that I might have a broken power socket or broken solder connection from the socket to the mobo. So I opened it up. The power socket looks normal to me, but then again, this is the first one I have ever seen.

My question:

what should I be looking for on the power board? What would I be able to notice if the solder connection was broken? and where should I look?

&

What would indicate that it is a broken power socket?

I have a win10 machine here that is getting worse and worse. Now it is off the web permanently, I can't connect at all.

It was intermittent and then progressively worse and now totally off.

It is supposed to be connecting via wifi3 whatever that means. The third wifi dongle I've put in since I've been hassling with it?

It claims it cannot see any available networks. A machine one metre away also running win10 sees four or five.

The machine is on an Asus H170 pro gamer board with an i3 cpu.

Here are some of the rough notes I eventually started jotting down as the thing went on, in no particular order but just as they came to me. You can see I finally got exasperated enough to start doing it when the machine started not even waking up:

. Machine doesn't wake up after it has gone to sleep from inactivity - or machine starts the onboard fan but there's no video signal. Plug a different monitor in and it, too, reports no signal. So it is the board.

. How to shut down the board in such a case with a keypress or two? I have to hold the start button down for a long time.

. When it reports it cannot see any networks I can find no way to compell it to search for networks.

. Reported 'wifi2 not a valid IP configuraton' - what on earth does that signify?

. Reported possible problem with windows adapter or access point or network cable. There is no cable, it's wifi, the 'adapters' - wifi dongles - have been changed and proven to work in other machines.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

According to this website: http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Overview-of-M-2-SSDs-586/m.2 slot comes in different flavors (SATA III, PCI-E 2.0 x2, PCI-E 2.0 x4 and PCI-E 3.0 x4) I would like to know what is the supported protocols for the T450s laptop. I'm asking this questions becauce I would like to buy a m.2 SSD disk to replace the "too small" 16GB that I have and I would like to know if it's worthwhile buying the Samsung SM951 that supports PCI-E 3.0 x4. Thank you.

A:T450s m.2 SSD

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Apologies that I can't answer the SATA vs PCI-E portion of your question with any certainty. I can say, though, that the SM951 won't fit physically in your machine. That SSD is a 22x80mm form factor (2280) while your machine takes the 22x42 form factor (2242).
 
Please have a look at your hardware manual:
http://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/t450s_hmm_en_sp40g54937.pdf
where manual page 66 describes removal / installation.
 
Then, have a look at the FRU BOM:
http://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t450s_frubom_20150126.pdf
and on the last page you'll see the only factory part listed is the 16GB M.2 2242 SSD normally used for caching (I believe).
 
You should still be able to install a higher capacity 2242 M.2 SSD in that slot, though. The largest M.2 2242 SSD I've seen is also 256GB, but I haven't searched exhaustively.
 
Hope this helps a bit.
Regards.

Hi, jacky711, and welcomeWhat do you mean, "the normal 2242 m2"?Cache SSD 16 GB in the T450s has m.2 form factor and is 22x42 mm in size. It's an usual size for such drives.Kingston SSDNow mS200 drive has mSATA formfactor, it differs from the m.2 one.

I have a T450S laptop. It came with 8 GB of RAM (4 on the board and 4 GB SO-DIMM). I replaced the SO-DIMM with a Crucial 16GB one. When I look at the system information, it indicates that I have all 20 GB of RAM available. I recently asked the computer to do a relatively big, but not that big, processing job that took a long time (14 minutes). While it was crunching, I checked the resource monitor and it indicated that only 3.9 GB of the RAM were being used and that  ~16GB were available - but the extra 16 wasn't being used, just sitting there being available. When the processing completed, the resource monitor still says that 3.5 GB are being used with "regular" computing - so basically, nothing was different with the big job compared to just ordinary tasks. How do I make the computer use all of the memory that it has? I've looked all over for some sort of setting.?

This Lenovo Forum thread has a reply form a Lenovo moderator that states that the T450s has 4GB memory soldered to systemboard and one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, so on your system the SO-DIMM slot probably has a 4GB SO-DIMM installed.     From what he states, if you have a 5th generation  CPU you could go as high as 20GB if you added a single 16GB SO-DIMM, but they are a bit pricey.  Crucial 8GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM  - $46.99- DDR3L PC3L-12800 ?

Couple of items related to my new  T450.  Note  that I have set up the system as a dual boot with WIN8 and Ubuntu. Function  Keys: On all other Thinkpads I have owned, you needed to press the Fn key to get the Function key hardware option, e.g. sound, display.  For some reason, on this maching the function keys are in hardware mode and you need to press the Ctl and Alt to get the normal OS function key.  Is there a way to change this? SSD:Ordered my Thinkpad with a 256GB SSD.  I looked at the Smart Drive statistics and see that 105 sectors have remapped.  I have used Samsung SSDs and never have seen this.  Should I be concerned? Trackpad Pointer:The red rubber pointer pad sits too low..  I often hit a surrounding key. I am migrating from a T60 to my new T450S.  So, I swapped my T60 red pinter to the T450 and the problem fixed.  Is there any way to order some replacement red rubber buttons that sit higher?













Solved!

A:T450S Issues

As for the function keys, press FN + Esc once to activate FN Lock and switch the FN functions. The TrackPoint sits indeed lower, in order to protect the screen (as on older ThinkPads, the TrackPoint would often touch the screen when the lid was closed). Its not recommended to use the older, higher caps. Rather get used to the lower caps.

1) The T450s sold with windows10, did they have the Lenovo features?Most of ThinkVantage applications were discontinued after Win7, as newer Windows versions have many build in features, which make additional applications unnecessary. Pre-installed Win10 Pro came with additional theme, some logos, (sometimes) power plan and four or five Lenovo apps (most of them are no longer developed).2) Is it possible in this case, to reinstall a recovery T450s in w10 on this laptop?If you made a copy of Windows 7 Pro recovery, then there's no problem to reinstall it again.

Hey guys! Just got a used t450s off eBay, and for some reason, the power button doesn't turn the computer off! I have to do it manually. I hit the button, and it doesn't do anything. Anyone? UPDATE: Solved. I just have to push it a bit harder

Hello,
I am experiencing cpu/coil whine issue in my brand new T450s. Any ideas? I read the issue is caused by low quality capacitors on the motherboard. Does anyone else experience this issue on the new T450s? Should I contact the Repair center? Noise is definitely related to the cpu power consumption, because when the cpu is working it is not noticeable, I have to put my ear on the keyboard to hear it, but when the cpu is idle the buzzing is very annoying.

I can hear this too, but only when the fan is not running. Seems to have something to do with the voltage.

I accidentally closed my T450S without turning it off last night and went to sleep. Today it won't turn on. When I plug in the charger the power button blinks 3 times. I have work vital to my job and my studies that I must retrieve soon. The laptop is 9 months old, but the warranty is invalid because I live overseas and I can't ship it to the US for repairs. I have files I need Monday morning or I will fail my courses, which means I also lose my job. I have some of it backed up, but the finished product was a file too large for my google drive and I just bought a new external hard drive to back up this korning. I have tried:1. Booting without the battery2. The emergency reset button3. Removing the internal and external batteries and booting4. Draining the battery by holding the power button then booting with no battery5. Hitting the power button 10 times then holding for a minute then booting6. Removing the RAM, draining the power, replacing the ram, then booting with no battery7. Unplugging and replugging the connector between the charger and the motherboard8. Putting the whole thing back together and letting it sit on the charger for an hour in the hope that all this stuff did something and now it just needs to charge. Everything I tried left me with the same result. 3 blinks of the power button when plugged in, and no other response to anything else. Is there any way of repairing this giant waste of money sitting on my desk? Please help!

Hello everyone! I use the t450s for school, and I'm very happy with it thus far. My only complaint is battery. Just today, I realized it had a 2nd battery. I'm relatively unfamiliar with it, so could someone please tell me how it works? Does it kick in after the 1st battery dies? Do I have to enable something? Thanks guys!

The computer power button turns green when I turn it on and it displays the ThinkPad logo and the words 'To interrupt normal start up, press enter'. The screen then goes black. I am able to enter Bios on bootup so it is not a display issue. I was using my computer yesterday morning, then it died, and now this is happening.  When I plug a power cord in, the green power button flashes 3 times. I have tried:- holding down the power button for 30 seconds- hooking my laptop up to another display - using a paperclip to reset the battery

Has anyone been able to get this to work?

As system was put into sleep, green power light was blinkly rapidly (writing to hibernation partition i assume) and then turned off. However, when tried to turn back on, it would not start.

A:30-day Standby with Windows 10 - t450s

30-Day standby is completely broken on Win10.  There are actually 2 issues:

the 3-hour timer to go into Deep Sleep doesn't work - the reason is because Windows 10 sets it's own timers which conflicts with 30-day Standby
You might not be able to resume from Deep Sleep - due to a BIOS bug.  I don't have a fix date yet.

 
Based on your description, you are seeing both issues.  I recommend that you disable Intel Rapid Start Technology in BIOS, and move on.
 
Win10 hibernate/resume is actually pretty good, so I recommend setting up OS timer to go to hibernate after 3 hours (which will give you the same effect as 30-day standby, but without taking up space for a special hibernation partition on your SSD).  The reason why 30-Day standby existed was because hibernate/resume in Win7 and Win8 was too slow. MS improved it in Win8.1 and Win10 is a lot better.

It may not have a DVD drive, but it surely supports USB DVD drive. As your friends - maybe someone have it already.If not, then you might consider buying one - they are rather cheap.

Hi there! I recently received a new T450s and after performing a clean install of Windows 7 and updating my computer, I find that scrolling with the trackpoint (using the middle button we all missed) is broken. In every application, scrolling is either insensitive, barely works, or most often randomly jumps a page while scrolling, as if someone was pressing PgDn every few seconds. I started with version 18.1.27.20 of the UltraNav driver, but it was simply unusable. Downgrading to version 18.1.27.14 helped things somewhat, though I am still nowhere near an acceptable point. Adjusting settings has had no impact. Two finger scrolling on the trackpad works beautifully in every application. Suggestions? Comments?













Solved!

Introduction The ThinkPad T450s is one of the best new ultrabooks. While it's not as thin as some, it's still quite compact, and much easier to service than thinner machines, and the Full HD IPS screen is a standout feature.This review is based on a production ThinkPad T450s, Machine Type 20BX, Product ID 20BXCTO1WW. Intel Core i7-5600U ProcessorWindows 8.1 Pro 6414.0" FHD (1920 x 1080)720p HD CameraIntel HD Graphics 55004 GB DDR3L - SDRAM 1600MHz BaseFingerprint Reader500GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm, 2.5"ThinkPad Battery 3 cell Li-Polymer (23.2Whr) FrontThinkPad Battery 3 cell Li-Polymer (23.2Whr) RearCountry Pack 45W AC adapter United States (2pin)Intel 7265 AC/B/G/N Dual Band Wireless + Bluetooth Version 4.0After receipt: 4 GB Samsung SO-DIMM was installedHard disk was replaced with 1 TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD.ConstructionQuality of T450s construction is not up to old ThinkPad standards, with some obvious cheapening, but is still pretty good. Annoyances include the difficulty of prying off the bottom cover (after removing 8 screws) to get to the inside, and fingerprint-revealing textured plastic instead of the old rubberized finish. But it's quite solid, no flexing, and quite compact.ConnectivityPort layout is reasonably good on both sides with nothing on the back. All USB ports are 3.0 with excellent performance. But Mini DisplayPort means you may have to buy and carry an easy-to-lose dongle. Wi-Fi performance (Intel 802.11ac 2x2) seems better than earlier gene... Read more
