Q: [BIOS] Intel Extreme Tuning Utility(XTU) support for X1 Carbon

Hello! Does X1 Carbon support Intel XTU? When I run one, I cannot see any controls for CPU voltage/ratio/etc. I also cannot see controls for Intel HD graphics tuning. How can it be solved?

Preferred Solution: [BIOS] Intel Extreme Tuning Utility(XTU) support for X1 Carbon

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I have a p50 with 6820hq and i'm trying to use XTU to get a little bit more of performance. However, there are some problems. The bios is 1.30 and 1.31.1) Watchdog is disabled. Is there a way to enable that? If not could lenovo add that to the bios? Now, XTU settings expires everytime I reboot.2) When running single thread, the CPU can only reach 3.6Ghz, while on the XTU, it is said to be possible to reach 4.0Ghz. Thank You

Hi.
I would appreciate if someone could help me to obtain better performance for my laptop computer and tell me which settings should i use within Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility, in the BIOS i am unable to locate settings for CPU multiplier or PCi and PCIe.
I'm asking for help obtaining better performance because my computer crashes starting a game which my system is at least compatible with it's minimum system requirements, i managed to understand it is due to a failed attempt of my system to reset the display driver and recover from timeout so i would also appreciate any help on getting past this issue.

I've seen that even after official uninstaller a lot of garbage is left on the HD, XTUService running etc...
Who knows exactly what and where to remove if you want to finally get rid of this tool?

I deleted the service with SC DELETE but "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility" can't be deleted because of some files still locked...

Can't find a guide or a thread about this.

Hi everyone, I have just purchased an Asus ROG G751 gaming laptop and used Asus and everything has gone perfectly. However windows update managed to sneak this past me :

Intel - Other hardware - Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility Device Driver

Installation date: ‎25/‎06/‎2015 18:10

Installation status: Succeeded

Update type: Optional

Intel Other hardware software update released in February, 2015

This is (I presume) is the reason Intel ETU wont install, please see the image for details of the problem. This has started to drive me crazy, so any help is much appreciated

A:Intel Extreme Tuning Utility service cannot be installed

I am having same problem with an MSI Z87 motherboard fresh complete installation. The optional apparently related windows update driver does not install on multiple attempts nor does it fail. It disappeared only to reappear when checking for updates. The reinstall went breezily and to plan so this problem is unexpected. Its just set aside for the moment.

It gets 'reported' to windows via the 'check for solutions' button on a daily basis, but I don't expect that does anything really.

Has anyone seen this, know what this means or how I can fix it?
Thank you for reading.

A:Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, PerfTuneService.exe stops working

Haven't seen it, but the usual solution for errors of this sort is:
- download a fresh copy of the program from the Intel Download Center ( http://downloadcenter.intel.com )
- uninstall the current version from your system
- install the freshly downloaded copy
- monitor for further errors

Just FYI - if you are overclocking, you can expect odd/unexplained errors because you're pushing the hardware past it's intended usage.

Intel Extreme Graphics 2 XGA 1280x800 support?

Hi, im new here and i really have searched hard for many weeks to resolve this issue to no avail. I will be very impressed if someone can help.

Im having problems with intel 855gme graphics drivers (Intel extreme graphics 2) on my clevo M12CW/M121W/M120W (4 yrs old, XGA 1200x800) and dont know where to turn.
The basic driver that came with the computer, regularily when i open a browser window or video window, the screen goes stripey grey. Everything seems to be fine underneath as i can shut down with no problems but no screen until i reboot.

I installed the latest drivers (and tried those inbetween to no avail) and this seems to overcome this problem but there seems to be no support for XGA resolution.

The new driver says in display>settings that monitor is digital flat monitor 1280 x 1024, but my screen is 1280 x 800 (XGA) and there is no option to change that. The only resolution that is usable is 1280 x 768, which fits the screen, but the text and icons are slightly distorted.

Ive searched all driver sites, intel drivers and the give the same driver for the GM and GME.
Is there any other drivers i could possible use for this resolution or is there one i can't find.

I purchased a IdeaCentre 710-25ISH model 90FB0001US from a Bestbuy in store on Jan. '17. I took note of what was installed before looking for the RAM I want and fond two sticks of Ramaxel Technology 4GB DDR4-2400 part# RMUA5120MB86H9F-2400 and was in fact running in daul channel mode of 1200Mhz each as that what Piriform's Speccy showed me of which I have a screenshot below.I didn't want wait to upgrade the RAM so two weeks later I purchased a four stick kit of G.SKILL Value 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15Q-16GNT from Newegg. After installing the RAM I found them running in the standard 2133Mhz, than went on to learned a lot about XMP, that I would need to enable XMP in the BIOS, I checked this machine motherboard's Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) and don't see anything about XMP. So as the subject title states "Does Lenovo support Intel's Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)?" how do I enable it and if not how's it possible this machine had from the factory (manufactured Nov. '16) enable XMP to have the thier RAM running at 2400Mhz? Also, who is Ramaxel Technology?

I have a Dell 8700 (Intel Z87 chipset) I recently purchased an Intel 600p SSD (M2) along w/ a PCI to M2 adapter.
While the SSD drive was recognized by Windows (10), it was not recognized by the BIOS.  My system is configured for legacy boot, and from what I've read a boot to a PCI SSD would only be supported by UFEI.  I'd be willing to reinstall Windows and change my boot mode, but, from all that I've read the current BIOS A11 on the Z87 w/ UFEI still would not support a boot to a PCI SSD.
Any chance there will be a BIOS update in the future, or would I need to go to a SATA SSD?
Thanks,

Hi, I purchased the X1 Carbon Yoga approximately 6 months ago and i must say I'm highly disappointed. For a flagship laptop the battery life is appalling, with my device struggling to get 4 hours with a moderate load of browsing and office productivity and at 60% brightness well shy of the 10+ hours promised and well under any reasonable measure for an ultrabook. Ive once had the battery replaced as the device originally struggled to even give me 2 hours under battery and when i apply a light pressure to the keyboard "rest" it makes a lovely grinding noise.. On paper this is a fantatsic device OLED monitor, 360 degree screen but living with it is terrible. The fingerprint scanner often doesnt pick up my finger and requires some time to figure it out and the carbon fibre gets so DIRTY. Its near impossible to keep it clean without the oils from your fingers staining it.  I'm at a loss what to do as i believe this device just cant be improved or fixed. It's just terrible at a price point of over $3,000. akooch

I bought an x1 carbon 4th gen a few years ago. While its had its problems, overall I've enjoyed the computer - although I wish I didn't do the custom build. In the last year or so, I've had extreme cursor jumping when pressure is applied to the bottom or top of the keyboard, especially if its not on flat surfaces. It gets so bad that it gets stuck in corners and I cannot move it at all. the only way to move it was to apply slight bending pressure to the whole bottom half or do a sleep/restart. I read somewhere that it could be a battery swelling issue that interferes with the touchpad sensor in the middle of the keyboard. I brushed it off and hoped an update would fix it. Several updates later it did not and actually only got worse. By chance, I tried turning of the touchpad function and miraculously, the cursor does not jump anymore, meaning it is a software issue. I've found a few other threads with the exact same issue but no responses let alone no solutions. It is really annoying because I when the whole touchpad is toggled off, the trackpoint AND the two trackpad buttons at the top are turned off. I got used to those functions, especially the two left/right buttons, so it sucks not being able to use them. I am wondering if I can get a refund or a new laptop, because as a lenovo user its unaccetable to pay the price you do for an x1 just to get mediocre results. Please help me find a solution, any advice is appreciated

To keep it short, I was trying to download the latest Intel HD Graphics Driver from the official website to update my wife's drivers to try and solve a problem. She has an Intel i5 4th generation and running with the built in GPU since it's more of an office/media computer.

Excluding driver ver. 4414, all the newest versions support 4th gen GPUs only on Windows 10 (when trying to install it says my system doesn't meet the requirements or some message of this sort).

It struck me as odd and you can't really make up a pattern here on only two consecutive iterations that don't support W7, but the fixes in the release notes would be extremely welcome to this OS as well.

Is Intel trying to ditch support for older generations that run Windows 7, thus inevitably making the customer to upgrade to 10 in the hopes of continued support of older generations?

Do you guys, who are more in the know, give any value to my assumption? What's going on?

I am guessing that something quite wrong was done in 2.20 (and it persists into 2.21). There was no such errant behavior with 2.19, as I've confirmed by reinstalling 2.19.  Works perfectly and boots promptly and the BIOS Setup utility works lickity-split with 2.19, just like it always has.  But with the install of 2.20 the behavior changed drastically.
 
Looking at the README for BIOS 2.20 this definitely seems like the culprit:
 
[Problem fixes]- Fixed an issue where fan might rotated with max speed due to not reading CPU   temperature correctly.- Fixed an issue where system might not boot to OS when attached an external monitor   and its USB3 devices.- Fixed an issue where network boot might happened at reboot after resume from suspend   by Wake On LAN.
 
 
At first I thought I had blown the BIOS update, since my screen was simply black for what seemed like 1-2 minutes after displaying the Lenovo logo and "press ENTER to interrupt" message.  I pressed ENTER repeatedly but nothing happened, for a long time.  Eventually, the hard drive activity LED on the P70 started flashing, and seemingly almost 2 minutes later, the machine came to life and boot process continued normally.
 
Then, once I entered the BIOS, I used the right-arrow key to navigate through the tabs.  No problem until I got to the Security tab and then pressed right-arrow one more time to navigate into the Boot tab... and it hung!  Didn't go ri... Read more

A:Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2

It should run it if you get a processor(preferably a pentium 4 instead of a celeron) that's above 2ghz.

Neither intel extreme 2 or sis mirage2 are good at games. I have integrated intel extreme 2 graphics in my one system. If I use it I get a score of about 4,000 points on aquamark3(about 4 frames per second, a real slideshow), but when I use my nvidia 6600 graphics card I get about 40,000 points, (about 40frames per second, a reasonable rate). The 6600 128mb is about 10X as fast as intel extreme2. The 6600 costs about $110 usd. You need an agp or pci-express port to use the graphics card though, which most cheap dell systems don't have(they can't be upgraded cheaply).

A:removing Intel extreme graphics 2

Well intel extreme graphics 2 is a chip built into the motherboard so you can't remove it but you can dissable it in bios allowing the instalation of a seperate video card.
However most notebooks don't have slots for video card upgrades so chances are you won't be able to upgrade your video card.

Hopefully it has an agp expansion slot so you can install a decent graphics card, but sadly many computers with intel extreme graphics completely lack this slot, and hence are stuck with very low end graphics.

Those may be for CRT and maybe not for LCD. I just don't want to buy the monitor and have it not work.
 

A:Intel Extreme Graphics and LCD WideScreen

Just get an LCD and a cheapo graphics card for like $30. Get like a X300 or Geforce 6200 or something. They are cheap, and support resolutions of up to 2560x1600 at full 16m color instead of crappy 64k. Also, they come with a VGA and a DVI output (DVI is for LCDs and that intel graphics card doesn't have DVI) so it will work.

I am building a Web Server using Windows Web Server 2008 R2 which I understand to be based on Windows 7 as for dealing with SSD drives and TRIM. I am getting so much different information for recommendations in other forums, hopefully someone here can clear this up for me. Some are insisting on Intel, swearing they blow away OCZ, but I see performance charts showing the new Vertex 2 consistently performing better then the X25 -Extreme

1.) Does using any form of RAID with Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 create the need to partition the drive only utilizing half of it. I have been told that there is no TRIM when using RAID.

2.) Is the OCZ Vertex 2 with Max Read: up to 285MB/s, Max Write: up to 275 MB/s, Sustained Write: up to 250 MB/s, and Random Write 4KB (Aligned): 50,000 IOPS now competitive with the Intel x25-Extreme drives featuring Sequential Access: Read up to 250MB/s, Sequential Access-Write: up to 170 MB/s (can't find an IOPS spec for random read/write).

Any information would be very much appreciated.

I guess I am confused as to why you would but an SSD drive into a web server. Your biggest bottleneck will be your internet speed by far.

Does the X1E support S3 sleep under Linux? It can't wake from suspend in Ubuntu Linux 18.10. Do we have to wait for Lenovo to offer such support through a BIOS update (like the X1C6) before wake from suspend or hibernate is possible under Linux?

Hi, I just got a Dell Dimension 3000 computer that has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 and no AGP slot. I was thinking of buying a 128MB or 256MB Nvidia/ATI PCI video card to improve gaming performance.

My computer's specs are: P4 3.0Ghz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache and 256MB DDR PC3200 RAM.

Do you think I would get any tangible, noticeable improvements in video playback quality and gaming performance? Or will the slowness of PCI just negate any benefits of the better video card?

If there are noticeable benefits to upgrading, which should I choose, the 128MB or the 256MB?

Thanks, I'd appreciate any help you could give me!
