System Board Replacement on X1 Carbon 3443 CTO

Q: System Board Replacement on X1 Carbon 3443 CTO

My motherboard died on my X1 Carbon Gen 1. I sent it to lenovo and the repair estimate was ~$750. I decided to replace it myself but the part for my system FRU 04X0495 (W8P,i7-3667U,8G,F,AMT,TPM,MT) new are quite expensive. I found a new systemboard FRU 04Y1988 (W8P,i7-3667U,8G,F,AMT,TPM) at a much more reasonable price and installed that. I now have a working machine (new machine type 3448-3Y2) but no touchscreen (I assume the MT stands for touch monitor or something).Question, and I think I know the answer, Is there any way to convert or add to my new systemboard the touch screen capability? I assume it is not just the driver?thanks,

Preferred Solution: System Board Replacement on X1 Carbon 3443 CTO

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Hello Support, My X1 Carbon (3443-CTO) screen regardless of resets or reboots.  As soon as it's turned on it's immediately white. When I attach an external monitor, it works but the laptop screen is still white.  I suspect it's the led screen that's defective. Can I order a replacement part?  I'm comfortable with replacing it. Regards, Rick

Hello, looking for some help upgrading to 16Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD. Current (as shipped) details:X1 Carbon serial #R9X132HProduct: 3443CTO180Gb Intel SSD FRU #45N83058Gb RAM on a single SODIMMIf you can point me to a 16Gb part # for memory I would appreciate it.

Welcome to the Community1. Unfortunately, the RAM upgrade is impossible. The quote from the laptop specification:"4GB or 8GB / PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3L / soldered to systemboard, no sockets"2. The SSD FRU 45N8299 you mention is compatible with x1c gen1

Can someone advise where I can buy a larger SSD for my X1 Carbon (Type 3443-CTO).  Not sure which generation of X1 this is. Currently have only 128GB.  Would like to have 1TB. I am also open to swapping the WWAN to free up the socket if that is a possibility.

I was able to create a bootable USB drive with the Maintenance Utility files. When I boot from the drive the Thinkpad Serial Number Update Utilities screen appears. After choosing the option to change the serial number the screen request a long serial number starting with 1S. For our T440 laptop, I been using 1S20B7S0XXUSPF00ACZZ. (20B7S0XX is the machine and model type, US is the country code, and PF00ACZZ is the serial number) When I try to enter this number the message appears ?

I have an old Gateway P5-133 computer with an Evergreen MX-Pro 200 cpu upgrade on an American Megatrends system board.
I was in the process of upgrading it with a larger hard drive, WinME, a couple of USB ports, potentially more RAM etc. and was experiencing intermittent episodes of it not booting up. My new machine's monitor, which I used while working on this old POS, was saying there is no video signal coming from the old computer. A new video adapter produced the same message, so I am assuming the system board croaked. It did boot fine following the installation of the new HD and ME.
What would be a suitable replacement if you would be so kind as to enlighten me? I can return the PCI Video and USB adapters but not the Maxtor 80GB Ultra ATA/133 drive and ME.

A:Replacement System Board


Welcome to TSG! As far as a replacement board, you are probably wasting your time. My suggestion would be to keep the video you bought, the hard drive and the floppy. The rest is very outdated. Your board is a socket 5 board with no real replacement out there. The case and power supply will be of no use on a newer board (probably an AT form factor). The evergreen chip will only fit a socket 5 board and you can go much much faster with a low end $30 duron processor. The memory is probably 70ns dram and will not be able to be used in a newer board. Not really much you can save. Your choices are to look at used computer shops for an old socket 5 board or to shell out a couple of bucks for a bare bones system.

I have an e7450 that has had what I believe to be a system board failure. It is out of warranty so I am looking at replacing the system board myself. The part number is CN-0Y15C1-12963-54I-  A0EF  REV A00.
I believe the original unit has an i5-5300U. Most of the replacement boards I'm finding online have an i7-5600U. 
Will there be an issue using the different processor if the board is still the same?

Hello, I just got my lenovo back from Depot after waiting for 2 weeks, it was sent for a Touchscreen issue, came back with some major hardware issues.When I first turned it on this morning, it was working fine, touchsreen was responding, then after about 5 minutes the screen started flickering I would say, and just shut down. Restarted it, then same thing happens every time I log in, it does it about 1 or 2 minutes after, or even on the boot screen.After couple of hard resets and restarts, the machine doesn;t turn on anymore, I press the power button, the mute and mic LEDs blink, then nothing happens.

My X1 died on me and, according to the sheet of paper that came back from the repair center, had its system board replaced. Unfortunately, when booting, I get a prompt for a bitlocker recovery key - and the key I have (confirmed with Microsoft) is not working. The key id shown on the recovery screen is also different. I've spent about 40 minutes on the phone now with Lenovo support, and haven't gotten anywhere - how can I get back into my machine? It would appear that, since the hard drive was not replaced, I should still be able to get in with my existing key, or am I missing something there?

I replaced the system board on my IBM thinkpad 600E because the original problem was that everytime the system booted up it would keep going to the time (time would not stay). I know that there is a battery on the system board but I figured it would be less of a hassle if I just replace the system board. I did that and now the system will not boot up. The LED's come on and I hear the fan run but nothing will show up on the screen. What should I do?

Are you sure the replacement board was not broken? Maybe you did something wrong when putting the thing back together again?

Just take the thing apart again and try your previous mobo. If that works, try with the new one again.

Hi guys, I have got a system board damage, so I need to exchange it. I have never done it before, so I'm struggling with findings of correct part for exchanging to. As far as I understood FRU number of the system board is what I need. I have found one which says 04x5166 right next to the RAM slot. Is it the only reference I need to use to find a right part? I have found a part on eBay, where in description it is written 04x5166 and three different numbers. You think this one should fit? https://m.ebay.com/itm/QTY-1x-Lenovo-Thinkpad-X240-laptop-motherboard-intel-i7-4600U-VIUX1-NM-A091-/... I would really like to try to repair my old friend first before going for an expensive new machine  lookign forward to hear from you! Anton

I have a yoga 260 that would not charge the battery when plugged in. I tried a different charger which didn't work and then replaced the battery but also no luck. I sent it to Lenovo and was told I need a new system board which was going to cost around that of a newer laptop. I decided to replace it myself with a refurbished board as I've done this on an old computer in the past. With the install complete it can get some charge to the board because it tries to start up but I am getting 2 short beeps with nothing on the screen. I realize this usually means there is a system board issue. I've rechecked all the connections and everything 4x so I don't think it was an install problem. Is there something else I need to do or did I just buy a bad refurbished board?

In June 2016 our company bought Inspiron 5759. I used it at office, we have air conditioning, nothing that could cause overheating or other problems. In the end of July 17 laptop just turned off and didnt react on any actions. I brought to service center and they told it's the hub located on the same board with CPU. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole board which costs around 600 USD because there's CPU Core i7 in it. I was given another laptop Inspiron 5558 which was not used since winter of 2017 because it had problems with WiFi. I tried to connect it with LAN cable and discovered that LAN is not working, in fact there's no LAN adapter in device manager. Service center said today that's the same problem - but this time hub is not completely broken, it's just doesnt see LAN adapter and periodically shuts down WiFi. The technician told that this is a frequent problem with Inspirons and Dell knows about it but doesnt recall laptops or extend warranty on this spare part. I asked when second laptop got the wifi issues - it started at the beginning of 2017 and warranty ended in December 2016. Again just 1-2 months.

So, it looks very strange that Dell laptops break right after ending of warranty with same problem, and we can't just change the hub, we need to buy a new board which includes CPU for 600 USD.

Hello. Thoughts?   Audio/ USB board on the left side of X1 Carbon is overheating to the point that the case is almost too hot to touch.  Is this more likely to be a fried board or software sending too much power to the board.  Seemed to work fine for the first two weeks that i owned this pre-owned machine.   Jeff

A local computer repair shop is the best bet, but for a computer that old, it will probably cost more than it is worth.  Best option is to salvage the data from the hard drive onto a working PC.  Easiest way to do that is to remove the hard drive from the old Pavilion A6400 and connect it to a working PC.  If it is just to retrieve the data, an adapter similar to this will work nicelyhttps://www.amazon.com/AGPtek-Drive-Adapter-Converter-External/dp/B00BIE996S/ref=pd_sim_147_2?_encod...

Last night I tried to replace the mother board on my Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop. I bought the replacement part from an Ebay store, and it is still under warranty (90 days). After taking apart my entire laptop and putting the whole thing back together--a job that took my friend and I three hours--we plugged it in for the moment of truth. The battery light came on, so far so good. Then we hit the power button and...nothing happened. Well almost nothing. The machine appeared to turn on. All three lights on the the bottom of the LCD went on, but that's it. The fan didn't start, the monitor didn't start. The hard drive light was on but didn't appear to be reading at all. (i.e. no blinking or noise.) I'm quite perplexed. Everything appeared to go back together perfectly with the possible exception of the diskette drive cable clip, which we weren't exactly sure whether to put back in over, under, or through the disk drive data cable. We eventually put it through. For instructions and pictures of the process, check out link:


Everything else seemed to go back together seemlessly. We were very careful with screws and put all the right sizes back into their correct places. What could be causing this? Have I received a defective part? Are there any other explanations? I suppose a possible explanation is that the processor and/or video board are not quite connected correctly, but they seemed t...

I am not certain I've identified the part correctly, but this looks like the French Canadian keyboard for the X1 Carbon Gen 3 (MT-M beginning 20BS or 20BT). If so, I believe the part you need is FRU 00HT302 or 00HN947 (the two are equivalent, just made by different manufacturers). You should be able to find a supplier online - I'd start looking on the Lenovo site for options in your country (click).

PC won't boot. Power (when connected to everything) only powers up motherboard and any cards attached to it. IDE drives show no sign of life.
However, if you disconnect IDE cables from the motherboard the IDE drives come to life.
If you disconnect power from the motherboard, and hotwire the motherboard power plug, the IDE drives will power up.

Tried motherboard with 3 different power supplies, same problem with all of them. Can't check CPU as don't have any other boards. Memory is fine, or appears to be as changing them made no difference.

Tried the board without any PCI (except agp graphics) cards plugged in, still had the same problem.

Not sure what else to do.

I moved to London from Melbourne Australia and had to get my PC shipped over. I would have taken it on board as hand luggage, but i wasn't allowed, so I had to have it freighted over as excess baggage on another flight.
It had plenty of padding so I thought it would be fine. It looks as though everything was fine except for what appears to be one largish dimple in the cardboard where it looks like it hit something. So there is a possibility of damage.

Any ideas anyone? I probably should have posted this under didou... Read more

My Carbon X1 5th Gen (20BS) left side hinge cracked and seperated completely at the bezel.  Anyone know where to get a replacement or, if I opt to go with a Lenovo repair, about how much the repair will be? I've been underwhelmed with this laptop since day one.  Slow performance (512GB/16GB with frequent reinstalls), slippery surface (why get rid of the famous rubbery coating?), and now a very expensive hinge crack clearly caused by metal fatigue. Meanwhile, my 1st Gen Carbon is still running strong.  No hinge problems, no cracks, minimal wear, and very zippy with Win 10 even running a measely 4GB RAM.  

A:Carbon X1 5th Gen - broken hinge! Where to get replacement?

Looking at the picture, I would need to take it apart to see what needed replacing.  If it is still under warranty (some 20BS are), and the hinge snapped while opening the lid, I would carry it into a dealer who did warranty service.;  I would tell him or her what happened and explain that I only wanted it repaired if it was covered by the warranty.
