X! Carbon 6th gen Mic not working mystery

Q: X! Carbon 6th gen Mic not working mystery

Hello. So we have started to buy the x1 carbons and have run into an interesting issue. What seems to be going on is that after we join the laptops to our domain and our login script runs the webcam microphone does not work anymore. I have called into tech support and talked with 4 techs in different depts with no real answers. Now here is the very odd part about this that we can not wrap our heads around yet and i am looking for some advice. 1. All Dell laptops do not have this issue within the company for either windows 7 or windows 10.2.the microphone works just fine until the laptop is on the domain and the login scrips are ran. 3. login script disabled apps and the Microsoft store only. 4. have uninstalled and reinstalled the audio drivers and still the same. The microphone does not show up with a conflict or being disabled in control panel. 5. On Thinkpad T480s that is set up the same way and on the domain the mic works. So that has us believe it is something to do with how the x1 are set up but again tech support has no idea.6. Also tried to plug in an external mic and getting the same thing it dose not see the mic.7. When trying to run the windows speech after putting the x1 on the domain a pop up shows up stating that there is not a micosoft on the laptop. a lot of this is tipping me toward it maybe being that the Microsoft store being disabled but that does not make to much sense to me because other models of laptops are working fine. Thanks for any help

I bought this X1 Carbon 6th gen a couple weeks ago, I never used the USB ports.Today I found the USB port on the right side is totally not responding. I have tried USB stick, my phones, none of those gave any feedback when plugged in. The left USB is working perfectly. I suspected it was the driver, but after uninstalled and installed, no luck. I even installed Ubuntu, same results. So it is not the driver. I also tried the emergency reset button. I used Lenovo Vantage to test hardware, no errors found. Any advice/suggestions? What else can I try? Thanks!

In the last couple days my X1 carbon 5th gen (with its warrenty coming to an end in 2 weeks) has started to do the weirdest thing. While every other FKeys work perfectly, the first three, those who control volume and mute and un-mute have stopped working.  I checked every possible driver update every day, multiple times since then and nothing seams to work. I also have rebooted and - miracle - the 3 keys started working again ... for a couple seconds before stopping once more. The only thing I have not tried is to reinstall windows, but I must submit my masters thesis pretty soon, so if I can manage to fix this problem without spending a whole day reinstalling everything on my laptop, I'd be eternally grateful.  Ideas?

Hi, I just got my X1 Carbon. The bluetooth is not working. Its not even possible to switch it on and of. The button does not even exist. If I click the bluetooth button on my keyboard it only opens the actions center where the button should be located. If I go to settings and look at the bluetooth setings there should be a slide button to switch bluetooth on or off, but it is not there. How do I solve this. How do I get my bluetooth back?

I have an X1 Carbon 2nd generation and hooked to it a OneLink Pro dock. Attached to that are two external monitors, a keyboard, mouse, USB HD and ethernet.  I used to connect my headphones directly to my notebook but a few months ago I noticed that when my notebook is hooked to the dock the notebook's audio would not work. Not a giant problem becasue I could get audio feed via the dock. But, it is a problem when I am on a conference call because the Mic feed doesn't work in the dock.  To  join a conference call I have to unhook my notebook and use my headset with the notebook. Alternatively I can join the audio section of the call on my phone and then the webfeed on my notebook. Both are frustrating.  Can I force the audio/mic feedback on my notebook even when hooked to the OneLink doc?  Or, can the Mic feed go through the dock?

Recently got a new Carbon x1, and everything was working fine, but once I closed the laptop and when I woke it up neither TrackPoint nor touchpad was working. Reboots didn't help. Tried installing Synaptics drivers - it said there was no device for update. Device manager detects the touchpad as Microsoft mouse with corresponding drivers (screenshot attached).  Also tried installing update for TrackPoint from the drivers list, it said it needed a reboot to install, after reboot there was an error window that suggested trying once again, several times I saw this message.Anyone have this? Are there any possible solutions?(Searched on the forum, but the solutions were not for my case or didn't work)P.S. It would be kinda stupid for a $1500 laptop not to work because of a touchpad

I've been having a similar problem with a WD Passport. I found that if I connect the drive with a USB 2 cable (instead of the USB 3 cable that comes with it) to the USB 3 port on my X1 Carbon, the drive works with no problem, but only in USB 2 mode, of course. Still, I would like a driver update of some kind so that I can use the drive at full speed.

So, during the windows installer, no mouse. I couldn't see the pointer, neither the touchpad or trackpoint worked. I managed through using the keyboard, then once I got to the desktop I installed the "Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad" driver and rebooted. Still not working. I installed the thinkvantage system update, it detects no updates. I installed the service bridge. No updates. I then made a linux live USB that I use to install manjaro on all my laptops, yes everything worked out of the box on my previous x1 carbon. Touchpad doesn't work, xorg doesn't even recognize any touchpad present. Anyone else have this? Any solutions? This is actually my 2nd X1 carbon; the first works well but the mouse buttons are loose so Lenovo promised waived restocking and shipping with the purchase of a new order of equal or greater value; I ordered another one with plans to return the first one, because I really needed to keep it for work while I waited for the new one. The new one is actually flawless in terms of build, mouse buttons are solid, the CMOS battery is not loose and producing a rattling noise as it is in the first one, and the bottom cover doesn't have the clicking noise that so many are afflicted with. Really I'm willing to try anything to fix the touchpad.

Hello I just got a brand new X1 Carbon. I would like to use it with a large (27 in) Dell screen. This screen has a dedicated DP, and I connected it to the mini DP of the X1. I could not get it to work: the X1 does not identify the screen, and the screen displays a message "no display port cable". I used another cable, still does not work. I know that the screen DP is OK, since I am using it with my older laptop (Lenovo X220), and I get a perfect high-resolution display.Also, I know that the mini DP on the X1 is not completely "dead", since when I connect it to the screen HDMI entry with a dedicated mini DP to HDMI connector, it works OK. I followed the instructions in the user manual re updating the monitor driver, etc. The problem still exists. I will appreciate any help with this problem, Thanks Ben

If you have any difficulty in finding the drivers, please share the MTM number & OS (Operating System) of your device so that I can assist you with the drivers.

Hope this helps!

All has worked flawlessly for years. This morning the trackpoint quit working. It's greyed out in the mouse settings, but enabled in the BIOS. The trackpad works fine. The buttons under the spacebar do not work. I've rebooted. I've updated drivers. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. I've updated the BIOS. Nothing has helped. Any further suggestions?

Hi there, I have a X1 Carbon purchased last month and predominatly use it on a docking station and thus use external speakers connected to the docking station. When away from home, I usually always have head phones in to listen to music; so I only noticed this problem recently when I was trying to play a slideshow for a presentation without any spearkers connected. My issue is that the left side internal speaker does not work -- nothing plays.  Only the right speakers work, with weird "crackling" sounds when playing.  It uses the Conexant Smart Audio...and I have reinstalled the latest driver, and also made sure that the audio levels are not only set to the right speaker -- I can put 100% for left audio, and make right audio 0% and absolutely nothing can be heard--it's only the right speaker that anything can be heard. Help?  Thank you in advance.

A:X1 Carbon Touch Backlit keyboard not working

Hi, architect7
 
Be sure to hold the Fn key while pressing the Spacebar to turn on the backlit keyboard. If you have already tried this to no avail, then I would recommend checking some BIOS settings. To enter BIOS, reboot the machine. When it is powering back up and you see the Lenovo splash screen, tap the Enter key repeatedly. A menu should appear. When it does, press F1 to enter BIOS. Once here, navigate to Config ? Keyboard/Mouse and check the settings of Fn and Ctrl Key swap and Fn Key Lock. For purposes of this test, make sure they are both set to Disabled. Once done, press F10 to save and exit. The machine should now boot normally. Log in to Windows and try to activate the backlight again and see if that works.
 
Best of luck,
Adam

After not using a bluetooth set for a while, it is no longer working with my X1 Carbon Gen 2. This same headset used to work with this computer and still works with a cellphone. However, with Bluetooth Enabled and the headset powered, the device shows up in the list of Bluetooth Devices and is shown to be of type Heaset. The Headset service option is enabled in its property settings too. It does not appear in the list of Playback devices, although the device paired properly. Things already tried to solve this but did not work:- Toggle Bluetooth antena on and off- Disable and renable Bluetooth- Update Bluetooth driver.- Uninstall and reinstall Bluetooth drive.- Update sound driver.- Uninstall and reinstall sound driver.- Even tried the bluetooth with the sound driver uninstalled! The problem always remains the same: Bluetooth is on, the device pairs and shows up in the list of Bluettoh device and has the headset service enabled, yet no sound comes out of it and it never appears in the list of playback devices. The X1 Carbon Gen 2 is running an up-to-date Windows 7 64-bit.

Searching Google and the Forums comes up empty. Specs: Product: 20FQ001VUSBIOS: N1FET63W 1.37Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Version 1803 Build 17134.167Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad Version 9.0.2.2 All updates completed (Lenovo and Windows). Any thoughts/ideas?Thanks!-Matt

I upgraded on Win 10 and FN key is not working. In Bios when I enable swap FN and CTRL, then CTRL works as FN turning on backlight when pressed together with spacebar. But Fn key in then does not work as Ctrl and also the indicators do not light up when Mic or speaker is muted (keys F1 and F4, Fn indicator also does not work). Any advice?
