Q: X270 Triple Montiors

Hello! I was wondering if it was possible for an X270 to support three external monitors (with the built-in display off/closed) using either a dock or a combination of the dock + onboard video ports?

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.

Hello,I have the Thinkpad T540p (20BECTO1WW) with the ThinkPad 170W Ultra Dock.I have two external Monitors and the native one active. I want to add another Monitor to my setup but cant do it.How many external Monitors does my Model support? I have the standard Graphicscards built in:GeForce® GT 730MIntel® HD Graphics (integrated) The two external Monitors are running through AVI and HDMI. I wanted to add the third external Monitor through DVI. Do I need DisplayPort? Do I need a special BIOS setting? Im running on ubuntu 16.04, but I dont think that this is important.Is there any support for a 4th monitor or are 3 Monitors the limit?

Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to use the Thinkpad x230 with USB 3.0 DisplayLink to drive 3 external display monitors? The 3 monitors only have DVI, VGA and HDMI connections. Also I have a Type 4338 docking station (with ESATA) should I upgrade this to the one with USB 3.0? or should I buy the USB 3.0 docking station instead? thanks

I have a T570 laptop and a Thinkpad Pro Dock-90W docking station.  I have two monitors connected to the docking station.  When I turn the computer on it takes several minutes for the display to appear on the external monitors.  It seems to make it go quicker if I open the lid and close it but it seems random.  Is there a way to speed up the process?

So I am to receive a precision 5510 in the next couple days. I've already bought monitors and a wd15 dell dock. I am a bit confused as to how to hook up dual monitors given that there aren't two of the same port on the WD15 like there was on the E-dock I am currently using for my precision m4700.

At any rate my monitors have HDMI (2), and VGA (1) inputs. The WD 15 has one HDMI, One mini display port, and one VGA.

To run dual monitors I  am assuming I need to run one from the dock's HDMI port to one monitor's HDMI and one either from the dock's Mini display port (with an adapter to HDMI) tot he HDMI port on the other monitor? I supposed I could go VGA to VGA as well, but prefer HDMI.
IS this correct?

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).

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

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' m not sure if this is possible but i've seen it somewhere and wanted to try it. if you have three computers and three monitors all next to one another is it possible to make them all run together so that there is only one log on yet once logged on all three machines can run independently of one another? i'm not sure if this is possible to do though. any thoughts?

You could buy a splitter for your monitor and add two more. and then extend the wires from the power supply into ATX cases and mybe stuff a hardfrive in each one..(just for asthetics)
Even though anything is possible, im not quite sure how you could combine processors..
I think it would take a hardware genious- or maybe i just need to brush up on my hardware =)

I do online tech support and I frequently get calls about Windows 2000 professional. I know enough about Win2000 to usually help people with their problems, but since our systems at work are still running Win98SE and my home system is running WinXP Pro, I sometimes am a little slow helping my clients navigate around Win2000 and have to use our online menus and tools to do so since I can't remember where everything is. I have a copy of Windows 2000 Pro at home, but opted to install XP so that I could become more familiar with it. I'm having problems getting my ancient CD Burner to work with XP (I've installed every patch for my Roxio software and downloaded every driver for my CDRW drive -- it just doesn't work, Acer even says so on their website...it just works once in a blue moon...not reliable and not worth wasting blanks). The question I have is:
Is it possible to install triple OS's on my computer, granted that I have enough space on my hard drive?
I was thinking about XP as my primary OS, 2000 as a secondary that I would use solely for browsing around to learn on, and finally 98SE solely for using my CD burner. I'm familiar with dual-OS systems, just never even heard of a triple OS. I don't see why it wouldn't work, just wondered if anyone knew if this was possible or not before I started messing around.

By the way, my CD burner more than likely works with Win2000...I guess this whole thing is more of a let's see if I can do... Read more

A:Triple OS's?

I don't have much experience in that area but I do think it would be possible. I have dual booted before and I fount the use of Boot Magic to be advantageous. I don't know how you could do it any other way.

I think the best thing to do though would be to get to the root of the problem.

You say you are using Roxio. I am assuming you are using Easy CD Creator. I love that program when it works (key phrase is “when it works"). I also use XP and have had problems with a LG CD-RW/DVD Player. Lately I have been using Nero. You can get a trial from http://www.nero.com/en/download.htm . I think it's a 30 day. I am using the registered version but the trial is Full Featured. Good alternative to tri-booting just for the sake of burning.

Also, what is the brand of burner (manuf., model number etc.?) I'll see what I can find out.

Hi I am hoping others have experienced the same issue.  I have a brand new x270 running windows 7 64bit. I have installed Sophos encryption which uses bitlocker. When I tried to encrypt the SSD a message popped up and said TPM was not available. I rebooted the system and checked the TPM version in the BIOS it was set to 2.0 so changed to 1.2, logged back into windows and the encryption completed successfully.  However the problem i now have is every time i boot up i am asked to to provide the retrieval codes to get back into Windows. I believe the issue is with the TPM chip holding the first attempt in its memory. How do I clear it though?? From within bitlocker management in control panel I can clear tpm but it asks for a password. I have never supplied one !!!!.  If i reboot the laptop and again check the settings in the BIOS there is an option to Clear TPM with the option "Enter" but when selected it appears not to do anything. Has anyone had this issue or know how to get around it please. At the monent I have had to suspend bitlocker until resolved. 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).

I'm not sure if the issues are related or not.Here is a list of the current status of each key:- FN + ESC (Fn lock): OK- Fn + F1 (Mute/Unmute speaker): OK- Fn + F2 (Decrease volume): OK- Fn + F3 (Increase volume): OK- Fn + F4 (Mute/Unmute microphone): Not working- Fn + F5 (Increase brightness): OK- Fn + F6 (Decrease brightness): OK- Fn + F7 (Change display output): Not working- Fn + F8 (Wireless on/off): Not working- Fn + F9 (Control Panel): Not working- Fn + F10 (Bluetooth on/off): Not working- Fn + F11 (Keyboard settings): Not working- Fn + F12 (User-defined key): Not working- FN + PrSc (Open the Snipping Tool) : Not working- Fn + Space Bar (Keyboard backlight): OK I'm using Win7 and I've already downloaded and installed the software  below, without success:- Lenovo Communications Utility Program for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Notebook - 3.1.23.013 - Sep 2017- ThinkVantage Access Connections for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Laptop - 6.26.8815 - Jun 2017- Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad - 8.86.2507 - Dec 2017 Does anyone know how to fix it?

I have a new X270, Type 20HNCTO and cannot figure how to activate the keyboard backlight.  Normally the "FN" key pressed with the spacebar turns it on on previous X models. Is there a special sequence or perhaps the X270 does not have a backlight on the Keyboard?

A:X270 Keyboard Backlight?

On CTO(configure to order) models a backlit keyboard was an option.  Did you buy that option?
