Hello, Since two weeks my Lenovo Thinkpad screen flickers on the right side and on boot up or recover from stand by. This becomes pretty annoying and I have updated all the drivers and also upgrading to Windows 10 didn't work neither. The warranty was due June this year, so I don't know that if I have to repair it that it will cost money. But I think it's strange for a screen to be broken in one year and 3 months. If you perhaps know a solution for this or know how it will be handled by Lenovo if I send it away for repairs please tell me. Yours faithfully, Joost Kolkhuis Tanke

Hi, I had an accident with my laptop and althought they fixed it for some reason one of the two word files I was working on is lost. I dont know if may be in my panic I saved one over the other but the two recovery (.tmp files) that Windows created are both different versions of just one file. I tried to access previous versions but although that option is ON on my laptop there are no previous versions of these files (although I've worked on them for several days). Please help!

Hi all, Since a few days I have been suffering from a keyboard problem.Sometimes the keyboard doesn't register my strokes, despite the fact that I'm pushing normally. In fact when it happens the amount of pressure doesn't seem to matter. Sometimes it is a letter and sometimes it happens with the Enter button. In any case it goes away after I keep pressing for 5/6 times. I was hoping that anyone here could provide me with a suggestion as to how to fix this problem. Kind regards, Niels

My S540 takes quite a long time to start booting. The boot process in itself, once started, is fast as it should be, but before the lenovo logo and the spinning circle appears it takes 30 seconds where the screen is on but black (only the background light is on). this problem is OS independent, it was the same when windows 7 was installed, right now win 10, the original build, is installed. Maybe related: I cannot upgrade to win 10 anniversary. After the reboot which should start the upgrade, the notebook is in the state described above for around 2 minutes and then shows the blue troubleshooting page. when you click "continue booting into windows 10" it does this without installing the anniversary update (win 10 1067). S54016GB RAMSSD Samsung Evo 1TBbitlocker encrypted (using the hardware encryption of the SSD)

Hello dear Lenovo Community,my first problem is Wifi connection. I nearly get no Signal. If i am sitting 2 meters away from the router i have 1 bar and if i put it directly onto the router i get 3/4 bars. In my room it doesn't find any wifi at all. I heard this is a common issue so there might be a fix for that.My next problem is the boot process. It shows me the Thinkpad Logo for like 5-8 seconds before it even starts to boot. I've tried erasing the ssd, updating the bios and resetting the bios to defauls. Nothing helped.

A:2 Thinkpad S540 Problems

Welcome to the CommunityRegarding the wifi issue. Are you able to disassemble the laptop (remove base cover)? The wlan antennas wires can be routed with too sharp angles, this decreases the sensitivity dramatically. Just reroute them, straighten the angles. Also, check out the wires connectivity correctness.

Hi Ogioto, welcome to the forums.

Here I found it.  Check it out to see if it gives you a better idea on what does machine has on the inside.

Greetings! I have i thinkpad s540 i7 version which I aquired from a friend who said it was broken and he did not know how to fix it. I noticed the battery was not working so I assumed it was dead and replaced it with a new one. The new battery is recognized by windows 10 but is not charging. I got an error message saying it is depleted and needs replacing, even if its brand new (<1 % wear level) If I disconnect the AC power, the computer dies immediately. It does not start on battery power either. This is also independent of OS (tried with linux and nothing at all). Lenovo settings app is installed and reporting the battery in poor condition. (98.98% of full capacity).The sleep and hibernate function is untrustworthy at best. Although the USB is set to be able to wake the device, after a few hours this is not the case (the computer is connected to an external keyboard, mouse and monitor. I would like to be able to start the computer fra the keyboard since it is kinda a hassle to reach the power button. Often when I want to resume after sleep, it makes sounds as if it is already on but nothing happens ("i" in thinkpad logo flashes softly) and a hard reset is necessary to restart it. other symptoms include fn key LED and mute LED is always on. The buttons are functional but the LEDs remain on at all times. These symptoms is leading me to believe that something in the power management control is bad (hardware side).

Hello everybody, I have a thinkpad S540 with an Intel Wireless-N 7260 since 1 year ago. As it happens with another users, sometimes the wifi does not work apropriately (the connection cannot be established), and I have to reboot to fix the problem. I have updated to WIndows 10, installed the lastest Intel Wireless drivers and the issue is not fixed. Besides, I noticed that my laptop has not wifi-ac (5 Ghz) capabilities. Therefore, my questions are the following: 1) Is it possible to replace the internal intel Wireless-N 7260 card for a faster -and more reliable- Wifi-ac card?(I have noticed that the user manual explain how to replace the intel Wireless-N 7260 card, but I assume that it means replacing a damaged card by another equal wireless-n 7260 card) 2) In replacement parts of lenovo S540 I have found the following Wifi card:"PN: 04X6010 2 Intel Wilkins Peak 2 7260 2*2 11ac+BT4.0 HMC Module".Can I replace the internal wireless-n card by this one? Will it fit on my laptop? Must I add an additional antenna for 5 GHz band? How? 3) In internet seems to be another 3rd-party solutions more cheaper than PN 04x6010. Do you recomend some of them realiable for me? 4) If replacing is not feasible due to the lack of an 5 GHz antenna, another solution is to replace my intel wifi-n card by another more realible one (but also wifi-n).

Hello everyone There have been plenty of threads about poor wifi performance on Lenovo S540.  But this is a new story. It is not poor, it is unhealthily terrible. I purchased S540 in summer 2014 and yes, wifi was weak but tolerable. Around 1 month ago, without a notice and without any intervention from my side, it became unhealthily weak. I mean it, 1 meter from router is more or less fine (three bars out of five), 2 meters  - weak and unstable, 3 meters - it doesn't even see the network. No barriers between router and laptop, of course The problem is not with router. That's because I tried two different routers, two different ISPs (and iphone hotspot just in case)- same story in every instance. Also, other devices in my family - laptops, smartphones and tablets - work just fine with existing wifi network. The problem is not with specific wifi card. I replaced wifi card (Intel N 7260) with the new one (nb. and probably lost guarantee by that) but nothing changed at all. The problem is not with software. I have all latest drivers and BIOS, and I also tested the problem under Windows 10 and under Ubuntu liveUSB - absolutely same symptoms, 3 meters from router = no wifi networks seen. P.S. LAN internet works perfectly fine, problem is only with wifi. From the above testings I conclude that problem is with hardware, but not wifi card - is it possibe? I would appreciate any thoughts or ideas on how I should...

I decided to keep it because the price was very good and I really like it. The other options were not nearly as good and as a programmer I need to have a computer all the time. I was wondering if someone could offer some help?I got 2 options:- Live with it.- Send it to the lab under warranty as it's only about a week old (Problem is I saw their work on my cousin's laptop and it wasn't good). Can it cause any further damage to the computer if I leave it like that. To the eye it's not as bad as it looks in the picture. One important note: If I hold it with my hands it will glue back and look perfect for a few minutes (When it was new it stayed for longer) until it goes back to its' original state. Thanks a lot for taking the time to read my post!Here are some pictures:When staring in front of the laptop:[img]https://i.imgur.com/Hz068OT.jpg[/img]Right Side:[img]https://i.imgur.com/fsJTxwC.jpg[/img]Left Side:[img]https://i.imgur.com/JEo27F5.jpg[/img]After touching it with my fingers for a few seconds:[img]https://i.imgur.com/luAVBPN.jpg[/img]

I've formatted the laptop and it worked great, but I saw that there was no wireless card and opened it to insert. I put a card from Dell laptop and when I turn on laptop, I got this error:

ERROR 1802 Unauthorized network card is plugged in - power off and remove the miniPCI network card.

I searched the internet and I saw that for this error, solution is updating/flashing bios with "whitelist removal". I did it and turn on the laptop and it worked normally, until I unplug the charger.
Whenever I unplug it from the charger, laptop shut down immediately, just like it is without the battery in it. I tried to get back the original bios, but still the same. It shut down in Windows (7 32bit), in Safe Mode and in Bios.
So the laptop is running great when I plug charger, battery shows a 100%. Previously battery held around 2-3h.

No matter how many restarts still get the same result. Unistalling/reinstalling f-secure does not help. Also, Windows reports that the Firewall and Anti-Virus protection is turned off. Can't seem to get through this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. My laptop behaves as if that my shift key is pressed... I turned off sticky keys and permanently turned it off too.. it didn't work. I checked with on screen keyboard an the on screen keyboard has same problem.. I tried enabling disbaling all serices did a diagnostic startup, normal startup. Had the same problem.. I tried to go into safe mode but I can't select safe mode..Also this problem clears up sometimes... And sometimes not. It works sometimes and sometimes it doesnt.. Like it works once then when i want to test it again after restart the problem pops up once again. I can't afford a new laptop so i have to fix this to squeeze out as much life this laptop has..AIso i tested my laptop keyboard had the same problem occur. And i also deleted mouse and keyboard drivers and i restarted the computer same problem occured. I don't know a fix to this i hope the leveno community knows. -Cheers, PrimeGDLaptop : Leveno Thinkpad X1 Carbon - Third GenCPU: i7 3667UGPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000Storage: 256GB SSDRAM: 4GB DDR3

So I have a connection problem with my lenovo thinkpad t61p computer. It is not our wireless connection as far as I know because other computers connections are fine when connected to our wireless connection. My problem is when i download files or open up certain online pages. It will only load up a partial amount of the file then stop. If i were to leave it wouldn't download even after many hours. But if I open up a new web page then the download will continue. It will then stop soon after again. How do i fix this. It is frustrating to open a webpage 5 times for a file to download completely.

Optional Information:
Computer OS: Windows Vista
Browser: IE

Already Tried:
I have gone to network connections. I have updated my drivers. I have done a system restore. and i have also typed in a short hand response to my prblem but saw no answers online
