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,I just joined the Forum.I have a Thinkpad R400 that has recently stopped charging its battery. More details.Model 74401 Gb disk, dual boot Win7 and LinuxMint 18.Recently upgraded RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb. New RAM is recognized.The "results" are the same with or with out Dock attached."AC Power Status" LED remains dark.New battery, former battery not charging either (old battery causes "Battery Status" LED to flash orange).New battery lights up Battery Status LED, and hovering over battery icon will show percentage of charge and not charging.New AC power supply, both new and old, read 20 volts DC at the yellow barrel connector.Will not boot by AC power supply only (battery removed, error message about low battery and powers off)I tried the AC and battery removed and 10 one second pushes on Power Button followed by holding Power Button down for 30 seconds, no change.I removed (under Win7) the Microsoft ACPI and Battery drivers under Device Manager. no change.Battery (new or old) does not charge when laptop is powered off and AC power supply connected. Problem may have begun several weeks ago when I closed the laptop without shutting down and put it in my backpack.A week or so later, its battery was dead when I pulled it out to use it again. Any ideas? Thanks,Fordy2

Hi Everyone!I'm Mariano from Argentina! this is my first post! everything alright? I write this to tell my problem or detail: i recently purchased a used Lenovo R400 Thinkpad that i like very much, i love the look, characteristics, processor, is very good, i put it 4gb of ram, it goes really well, i paid it very cheap. But I have a little problem (the seller told me about it and show me the thing): the display (lcd) shows a little horizontal line that comes and goes (3 seconds in, and 3 seconds  out), is on the bottom on the screen, but the machine is working great, the rest of the screen is working absolutely amazing, no problem at all, it's only that line that comes and goes, is a little detail (sometimes you see it and sometimes you can't even realize that is there), i take the display off but is not the flex i guess, i move it, and is not a question of move it... the question is: anyone knows what exactly is? and how can i take it off?If anyone can help me i would be pleased with that...  Thanks very much guys!

I'm trying to install XP on XPS R400, previously running 98. I'm getting error message invalid system disc but all original discs are lost. I reformatted drive thinking the XP would go right on but I'm stuck.
 

A:Dell XPS R400 Pentium II

It sounds like it's not booting to the Windows XP CD. You need to get into the BIOS setup and be sure the boot sequence is set to CDRom Drive, Floppy Drive and then hard drive in that order.

When the PC first powers on, you should see instructions to press a key to get into Setup. It's usually the DEL or F1 key. Once in the BIOS setup set the Boot Sequence and be sure to read the instructions on the screen to save the settings as you exit.

Let us know what happens.

Hi
i have a Portege R400-106, which no longer has a hard drive - so can't just get the number off the old one :-(
i'm trying to work out which hard drive i can put in it,
i can see that hard drive space in the laptop has IDE prongs. It is possible that this is PATA type, but my research so far suggests that when drives say they are IDE, i should be OK (please tell me if i have this wrong!)
i believe it is a 2.5" drive i'm looking for and the original drive would have been 80GB, which is about what i think i need.
I think i may be wanting an MK8025GAS ???

i found one at: http://www.memory4less.com/ConfItems.aspx?modelid=80028876
but the cost is pretty prohibative as i live in the UK and the shipping is loads.


I can't seem to find anywhere that can tell me which drive is suitable
cheers in advance for any ideas :-)

A:R400- Does not boot with new Kingston ram.

Those modules are Kingston Value RAM modules (identifiable by the KVVxxx product number), which normally don't work well with ThinkPads, if it's possible I would return them back and get a different brand, for example:
 

Corsair (but avoid the "Value Select" line!)
Samsung
Hynix
Crucial
Elpida
ADATA
Kingston (but not the "Value RAM" line!!)

Yesterday I had this issue with my Lenovo R400 and I alredy solved but i want to post the solution on this forum for other people.  The ProblemMy laptop entered in hibernation mode and in the morning that i tried to turn it on it didnt. I pushed the power button i see the lights of 1 and A turned on and off twice, but didnt show the boot screen.. The screen was blank doing nothing. Solution 1Disconnect the power cable and battery and push the power button 11 times and in the 11th push the button for 30 seconds. Connect power and push power button. Then you can connect the battery. Solution 2 (The one that helped me)Removed the power cable, the battery and the internal battery of CMOS and let it disconnected all for 15 hours. I dont now the exact time that it have to be disconected but i read a post saying 15, maybe with few hours if enought.  Then you connect the cable and push F1 (until beeps)  and turn on the Laptop to enter in Supervisor Mode to set date and time F10 and exit. Connect the CMOS's battery and normal battery and is all. WARNINGIf you reset the CMOS and the laptop have a Supervisor Password enabled and you dont have it  you will be in big problems. Mine laptop didnt have it. I was luck because i didnt know it. Without the Supervisor password you cant set the date/time and the laptop wont boot again. You will need to change the MotherBoard.

not sure where to post this since this is my first time on board. I have a Dell Dimenstion XPS R400 running XP. My son was using this computer last week and now it displays a "Enter Password" box in the middle. You shut the computer off, it starts up again, normally, but then won't take you past the page where it lists the BIOS info, etc. I have tried F8 or ESC but it won't go anywhere unless the password is entered. I am not thinking it is the XP but am thinking it is a Dell password that is needed. I won't even download from the disk and reload XP.

Any suggestions on a password or on what to do? thank you in advance! mellow

I have a Dell XPS R400 with 196 Mb (32/32/128) of PC100 SDRAM running windows xp. I wanted to upgrade memory. Dell claims the machine can handle ~380 Mb of PC100 SDRAM. I checked around on-line, and it appeared that I could install PC133 SDRAM on this machine. My machine does not boot after I installed a single stick of 128 Mb PC133 SDRAM. It will boot with the original PC100 SDRAM. Any ideas?

This discussion indicates that my machine can handle more memory: http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/wind...XPS-R400-with-Intel-SE440BX2-motherboard.html How can I verify this?

I have a Dell XPS R400 with a Pentium II, 400 MHz processor running Windows 2000. (It originally had Windows 98). I currently have one socket filled with 128 MB of SDRAM (PC100, unbuffered, CL=2) . I would like to upgrade and add more memory.

Information from Dell says the computer supports 100 Mhz SDRAM 168 pin DIMM with a maximum size of 128 MB up to a total of 384 MB (3 sockets).

The motherboard is an Intel SE440BX-2. The documentation for it says it supports up to a 256 MB DIMM SDRAM for a total of 768 MB.

Why the discrepancy? Is it based on the OS? And how high can I go?
 

A:Memory Upgrade - Dell XPS R400 with Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard

The old W98 did not function properly with 256MB or over.
W2000 does not need more than 512MB, but works fine with up to 1GB.




Intel said:



System Memory Combinations
The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.Click to expand...

I would believe Intel rather than Dell.
Make sure you get PC100/CL2 SDRam, anything else does not work.
You can mix different MB-sizes memory-chips. So buy what you can afford.
Unless you do intensive graphics, even just 1 256MB-stick will do wonders.

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

See subject.  Ever since the BIOS upgrade, the dock no longer crashes.  Two days running now with no problems; prior to the upgrade it would crash routinely when connecting via USB-C.  I had to employ the unsavoury workaround of connecting the laptop to a charger and connecting it to the dock via the USB-A port using the USB-A to USB-C adaptor supplied.  Now I'm connecting via USB-C cable only. In fact, I'd given up on using the dock at all and had it just sitting there.  I decided to give it another go after reading that BIOS v1.19 fixed instances of BSODs occuring when connected to an external monitor (which I did experience now and again when connecting to an external monitor via HDMI i.e. not via dock).    Dock Type : 40AFX1E Type : 20MF

Hello everyone, ? It's been a year since I bought a ThinkPad X280. Yesterday night, I plugged my phone to charge and close the lid before going to bed, while forgetting my phone still left plugged. When I woke up, I saw that my phone was at 0%. I turned up my computer and tried to plug it to charge but it refuses to do so. And yet, the computer is still able to detect it and transfer files. The only problem is that: it does NOT charge! I tested on this USB port another phone, and on a different operating system : same problem.I tested the second USB port on my laptop, everything work just fine.I believe that this is a hardware problem. Has anyone encountered this probkem before ? How should I solve it ? ?? NB. As a personnal note, I may say that I am highly disappointed by ThinkPad products. My first ThinkPad was a X1 (1st gen.) and every year, something just suddenly broke: keyboard press key, fan, motherboard, SD card reader. I had hoped that this was due to this product line and decided to buy a brand new X280 to give a new start of my opinion on this product. I must say that I am highly disappointed as my laptop is just 1 year old and that I barely use it anywhere else than home. The product quality is bad. I am not sure I will continue buying ThinkPad in the future...

Hello, I am looking for a laptop which can be securely attached/locked (so that I can let it during the night in the office). Could you please tell me if the following laptops have a security slot (Kensington or similar) to attach it somewhere?THINKPAD X1 CARBON (5TH GEN)THINKPAD X1 YOGA (2ND GEN) I do not find it described in the specifications, but from the available pictures, it seems that they have some kind of security slot. Thanks!

I bought a used IBM Thinkpad T20 Thinkpad Type 2647-92U from eBay for use this semester on campus. It is in great shape and has a recent edition of Windows XP but an older version of MS Office which does not boot properly.

This computer was a part of a network and keeps trying to connect to it each time Windows loads. It came with a LinkSys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter 2.4 GHz 802.11g card.

The CD is an official copy; clean and has no scratches or nicks. The DVD/CD-ROM will boot other CD's such as music CD's and DVD films and data discs with MS Word files etc on them.

Any help would be appreciated!

Yours,

Kyklopes
 

A:IBM Thinkpad T20 Thinkpad Type 2647-92U Won't Boot my MS Office 2005 CD

That T-20 is pretty long in the tooth. I suspect your optical drive either needs cleaning, or is worn beyond repair.
Did you try the CD in another drive as a double check?

Does the Thinkpad P51s support the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock? I have the Thinkpad P51s with stock Windows 10 Pro and updated to latest drivers and Windows version and installed the latest Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock drivers. Attaching the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to the P51s as described in documentation, it charges the notebook, however, noting attached to the dock is recognized. I've tested with attaching USB flash drives, headphones, Ethernet, HDMI, and DP, but nothing is recognized nor are any warnings/errors displayed in Windows. While the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock is listed as being compatible with the P51s and T570, the notebook order page does not list the Thunderbolt 3 Dock in any of the accessories lists. Lenovo Sales also confirmed that the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is fully compatible with the P51s.  However, I needed to purchase the Thunderbolt 3 Dock separately from the notebook order. What's going on? Has anybody successfully used the P51s or the T570 with the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock? Or is this something I need to wait for full support via a future BIOS/driver update? Or perhaps my Thunderbolt 3 Dock is defective? Thanks,Boris

Dear Community Last week I received my new ThinkPad P53, a custom order over my schools IT-Support.After upgrading RAM and SSD I ran into some errors and the boot drive got corrupted.I managed to restore the boot drive using the Lenovo USB-Recovery-Creator and the official factory image.Everything now works perfectly fine and alle the drivers and utilities that came preinstalled are also back again. Except for one thing. Out of factory there was a utility called X-Rite Color Assistant for color calibration that is now gone.I already updated everything inside Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update, but it didn't bring it back either.Yesterday I saw that the X-Rite Color Assistant can be downloaded under https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds540353providing the serial number of the supported products. It also can be found under the software and ultility downloads of theX1 Extreme Gen 2 and the P1 Gen 2 but not yet for the P53 or so on. Since the Lenovo X-Rite Color Assistant is cloud based and the color profiles are stored online you have to provide the serial number of the factory calibrated machine. Thats what I did, but it says that the serial number is not allowed for this download, despite my ThinkPad P53 has a X-Rite Color Calibrated sticker on it. Do you have any suggestions? Maybe it isn't available yet beacause the product was released recently, after the X1 Extreme and P1 Gen 2. Thank you for looking in. Best regards, Simon Sp... Read more

Apologies if something similar has been posted, I just can't find the answer. We have a 5th Generation Thinkpad X1 Carbon connected to a Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 dock. At the moment the display is mirrored using a VGA cable to connect to the dock. What we would like instead is to connect the dock to 2 external monitors with separate content on each monitor and the laptop display blank. I just can't figure out if this is possible, what might be needed, and how! Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have  a Thinkpad X380 Yoga. The Thunderbolt 3 Dock will not charge my Thinkpad X380 YOGA, and a message saying that the dock is not providing enough power shows up on my minitor. I wonder if anyone have a solution to this problem. It does not make  sense to have to connect the Thunderbold AND the AC power to the Thinkpad, it should be just ONE Thunderbold cord. 1. My power brick is 135W, 20V-6.75A2. I am connecting the Thunderbolt to throuogh the port on the back of the dock.3. I have went to BIOS  and under power section, "disable the battary for technical service" and pwered it back on. None of the above solutions worked.

I contacted Lenovol support and they send me a replacement unit. The the replacement unit has the same problem. Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 docking station does not charge Thinkpad P51 battery.  I need to plug in the power adapter for both docking station and notebook.  Does anybody have similiar problem? 

A:Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 docking station does not charge Thinkpad P51 battery.

Everbody's p51 would be the same.  The thunderbolt port won't work as a charging port.  The thunderbolt specs specify 100w max.  That's not enough.  Your thunderbolt port is not for charging.  To charge via the dock, you need a workstation dock, not a thunderbolt dock.  A thinderbolt dock can charge things like an x1 carbon (5th gen) or x1 yoga (2nd gen)
