x270 installing 9.5mm 2.5" HDD instead of 7mm

Q: x270 installing 9.5mm 2.5" HDD instead of 7mm

Hello, I just got an x270 and want to upgrade the HDD to a large spinning disc. The specifications sheet says the computer takes 7mm thick 2.5" drives. https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20X270/ThinkPad_X270_Platform_Specificati... I opened the computer and put a 9.5mm drive in the plastic drive holder and it fits perfectly. Is there any reason I can't use a 9.5mm drive in this computer?

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.)

I bought two brand new X270's WWAN upgradable and bought EM7455 cards separately. I installed the cards as directed. When I booted the laptop the first time after installation, a warning message saying something to the effect of "unknown network hardware EM7455." Windows didn't detect the newly installed card. So I did a CMOS reset (removed the extra battery, disabled the built-in battery on the BIOS and pressed the CMOS reset button to the left of the battery bay). After the CMOS reset, Windows recoginized a new hardware by the name of "Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm" but couldn't install the driver (see the attached screenshot). I did install Lenovo's EM7455 driver (total file size 191MB) and didn't work. I turned to Sierra and found a generic USB Build 4581 driver and it didn't work. When I restarted Windows, the newly found hardware was gone. I did a CMOS reset again and it came back up on the device manager list.  So I turned to Windows update. It found a driver update by the name of Sierra Incorporated - Ports dated 10/20/2016. It tried to install it but it failed. However, the device's name was changed to Qualcomm COM Port (3) and it was still not installed properly. I went to the device's properties and changed the port to 8. It recognized the full name of the card but GPRS connecitons on Windows didn't show up. I restarted Windows, and the device was gone again! I checked the BIOS permissions and I tried different scenarios (disabled WWAN, e... Read more

I need some advice about the displays for the x270 ? is the HD display on the x270 an IPS? I didn?t find this info here https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-x/ThinkPad-X270/p/20HNCTO1WWENUS0/customize?...! My current x240 with has HD resolution (I can?t tell if it?s IPS or not) model 20ALCTO1WW ? I?m considering replacing it with the x270.I?ve heard good things about the FHD display but I?m concerned that with the FHD panel my font size will be too tiny for my 50+ year old eyes in its native resolution. I?ve heard that scaling the display results in suboptimal rendering/quality of text/fonts. Has anyone looked at both versions of the display? How do they compare? I?ll be using the system for mostly coding/writing and perhaps watching some videos. No Graphics or PS intensive work. Might hook it up to the tv from time to time (not that often) The display on the x240 isn?t the greatest (could be brighter for sure) but it works fine, so I could probably do fine with the same type for the x270 ? or is there something that I ought to consider? Thanks! PS: FWIW, I?m planning to get the i5-7300 model with 16 GB RAM and the 500 GB drive (that I plan to replace with a standard SSD 500 GB or 1TB drive ? hopefully not a problem).

Foolishly I thought the nvme support included the built in WWAN port which hosts M2 2242 form factor M key drives. So, I have this drive:- https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07XVTRFF8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Now I have been googling for hours and simply can't find what I need to plug this into the x270. The information on the Lenovo m2 adaptor doesn't specify if it supports M key, nvme/PCIE or anything, General forums are also full of conflicting advice. So, what do I need to purchase, from Lenovo or elsewhere, to use this M2 2242 NVME drive inside my x270? Many thanks, and apologies if I have missed something obvious! regards r.

I can't seem to find a power input rating for the X270 I currently have on order. Of course, I know you can use a 65w with one, but it won't improve charge times if the amp input is limited. The store pages don't list the AC adapters output ratings by adapter and the C.S. chat reply was, "I don't have that information available." I know the output on the 45w is [email protected] simply because I already have one for my X240. Anyone with a 65w willing to post the output for me would be greatly appreciated. More appreciated would be anyone that happens to know what the X270's input ratings are so I can determine if charge times could be cut with a 65w. TIA

I   replaced the keyboard of my X270, not realising how much more difficult this process was than on an X230. I got everything working, and it powered up fine.  But my X270 wont power on. It recognises the AC adapter. Pushing the emergency powerup pinhole next to the battery doesn't work either.  I suspect that the power button is not working. I opened up the laptop to investigate, and found that a connector around the area of the power button is damaged (pictured).  The wire seems to have detached from the smaller connector.  My questions:Is this connector related to the power button?  Can I find a replacement, or repair with soldering?  Where can I find a map of the motherboard so I can confirm what this part is myself

I never had problems imaging Lenovo Laptops, so we got a X270 as a demo and i put Windows 10 Enterprise on there, enabled the chip in bios and it is using TPM 2.0 which is the only difference compared to T550, T450 and P50 i had image. Whenever i try to start bitlocking (encrypting the drive) i'll put in a pin number, recovery is stored in Active Directory but as soon as it restarts I get the following error: "The BitLocker Encryption key cannot be obtained. Verify that the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is enabled and ownership has been taken. If this computer does not have a TPM, verify that the USB drive is inserted and available. C: was not encrypted" I can't think of anything else to fix this. Since this is a 30 day demo trial, we might as well send it back. We have NVME for HPS which I am able to put our image on and bitlock with no issues. I can't believe I don't see much online about this. I can't be the only one. Any suggestions much appreciate it.

I have read similar posts from people experiencing a similar problem on other Thinkpads, but my problem seems slightly different. When I go into Control Panel and choose Sounds, I get "No audio devices are installed". Hovering my mouse over the volume button in the taskbar gives me "No Audio Output Device is installed". I've read in other posts that one should try uninstalling and reinstalling the sound driver in the device manager, but when I go into Device Manager, I can't find anything related to audio:I have rebooted my machine, to no avail. When I click on the volume button in the taskbar, Windows starts a troubleshooting process, but it just tells me "There might be a problem with your audio device." I've read the page on Lenovo's website entitled "Fix audio or sound problems in Windows 7, 8, & 10", but none of the suggested solutions work. Thanks in advance.

I am about to replace my X230T by a X270, and have a few questions about X270 specs and about running linux on it.  I am configuring the X270 with a FHD touch display, 16GB RAM, and a 500GB 2.5-inch SATA HDD (not SSD) that I will upgrade. 1. The HDMI external video out specs mention 4k @ 24Hz.  No other resolutions execept 4k nor any other frame rate is specified. If I run external video through HDMI at FHD resolution (1920x1080), I would expect a higher frame refresh rate, at least 75Hz. Is that correct? 2. I currently set battery start/stop charge thresholds on my X230T, to protect long term battery health (I use the acpi_call kernel module for this).  Can battery charging start/stop thresholds be set on the X270? 3. If I run my desktop display on the FHD IPS screen at 1600x900 (instead of 1920x1080 FHD), will it cause any blur issues? 4. I plan to replace the 500GB HDD by a 2TB SATA HDD, and also put a M.2 2242 SSD (32GB) that I own into the WWAN slot. Will I be able to boot from either drive? 5. I run Linux Mint 17.2 (based on Ubuntu 14.04) on my X230T (rock solid, running continuously for more than 2 years). What is a linux distro that is good for X270 (good means stable and supports everything)? Thanks in advance.

Hello,  The x270 almost always hangs/freezes when handled. The laptop is about 2 years old but the issue was there right from the start. First, thought was that this is some sort of strange software issue I as owned x60, x61, x220 and had no issues as these things were literally indestructible, so I simply disregarded an hardware issue entirely for long time. Hence, it took us a while to realize the issue, this is also because the laptop usually sits on the table without anyone moving it, but this has changed recently.  As the days went we started to realize that the freeze only happens when the laptop is handed to some other person.  When the laptop is sitting still on the desk there is no issue and works as expected.  When facing the screen the bottom right corner around the fingerprint reader and/or below seems to the affected place. This is the most likely place to hold the laptop when it is handed to somebody.   Unfortunately, the laptop is not under warranty anymore. Any thoughts on what to do to resolve this issue? Thank you

Hi Team,I have a Thinkpad x270 (System Model 20HNCTO1WW) and have purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad EM7455 4G LTE Mobile Broadband (Part No: 4XC0M95181).I was very surprised that I only saw two signal bars compared to my Singeltel-Optus LTE USB stick (HUAWEI E3372) which shows four signal bars. Also the throughput (up and download) seems to be faster through the USB stick compared to the now integrated and embedded Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A. Do I have some sort of antenna interfeerence/performance? Any other issues I should consider. Thank you for your feedback Cheers Jose
