New T570 running hot

Q: New T570 running hot

Yesterday while playing a not strenuous game the laptop was quite hot, on my mac i had installed a fan control software (smcFanControl) where the OS would only be overridden when i chose to manually turn up or down the fan, i tried that with this laptop and the fan control software most highly recommended seemed to fiddly so i uninstalled it. Now the laptop is running hot with the fan on for tasks like Word where it never ran hot before. Any ideas on how to fix this? Laptop is less than two months old

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 have a T570 20Hx.After updating windows 10, it now tells me that my TPM needs a firmware update.Win 10 tells me that my TPM is v 1.16 (Fri Jan 15, 2016)However, my BIOS has been updated to the latest version (1.32). When I look at Lenovo support, it appears that it tells me that my T570 is affected by this issue, but the fix appears to direct me to the update for the BIOS.  I already have the most current BIOS.Is there another fix available that I am not finding?Is there some reason that the fix is not being automatically made available to me?Or, is there not yet a fix available for this TPM version?

A:T570 - Ram Upgrade (no longer available?)

Probably, the one from Lenovo is temporarily out of stock.  In general, any RAM with similar specs will work, although there are occasional compatibility problems, especially with RAM described as "Value RAM".  I always suggest that people check the seller's return policy on any RAM they are buying.  I tend to buy whatever is cheapest.

Hi there. Out of nowhere my two month old T570 started beeping in Windows 10. It's not a BIOS or hardware failure code. Just an on-off-on-off beep forever. Also, the keyboard just doesn't work. I can thankfully plug in a USB keyboard. If unplug the keyboard ribbon connector the beeping immediately stops. But it instantly starts beeping again the instant the connector is reinserted. What's happening here?

Is it possible to have an SSD together with a HDD in the T570? I spoke to a sales rep in Australia who assured me it was possible, but advised me to contact technical support about the details; I was informed by technical support that it was not at all possible. Plugging an SSD into WWAN slot was specifically excluded by the tech rep as an option. I am asking this because in my T500, with which I have been happy for many years, I had a 256GB SSD for my OS and programs and a 1TB HDD (in the Ultrabay) for my files; the latter could be conveniently removed for transport when necessary. This set-up was not possible in the T560, for which reason I have delayed replacing my T500.

I have been using this new T570 for just over a week and have noticed some really upsetting discomfort. After only a few minutes, my eyes become fatigued and I start to experience a strange chilling unpleasantness. The first time this happened, I ended up with a migraine for the rest of the day and got sick.  As a disclaimer, I have normal (20/20) vision and I have never experience any negtaive side effects of using a computer, laptop or phone before. My main driver before getting this machine was a Samsung Tab S2 (AMOLED) and occasionally a normal desktop. I also own an LG G6 (LCD). This tells me that it is not simply the technology of LCD or AMOLED that is making me sick.  I believe the T570 is an LED powered LCD screen (not sure though). This one is FHD with a matte filter.  I have looked up things like PWM but this issue seems to occur whether or not the screen is full brightness.  It took me a week to acknowledge that the issue is actually coming from the screen. I am currently using this with it plugged in to an external monitor and haven't had any negative side effects. Does anyone know what the problem could be? BTW, I also tried changing the resolution (didn't help) and zooming in to 175% (which I thought helped but it didn't). Is this just how these screens are made?Is it somehow bc of the matte finish (hard to believe) or the FHD (really hard to believe)?Is this a defective screen?Did I get stuck with a laptop that had a...

Hello,one month ago I ordered a T570 with the 1TB SSD option, and have had intermittent hard drive failures from the start. The OS crashes and then the device won't appear in the boot options nor in the Lenovo diagnostics. Then it randomly works again.I have already tried re-seating the drive twice and re-seating the cables three times, but the problem persists.I have appended a log from Lenovo diagnostics where apparently the drive failed during the diagnostics run.What are my options now?

Hi there,So far I've been using a good old T61/T60 blend. Today I received a brand new T570 students' edition (512GB SSD, 8GB Ram, nVidia graphics, UHD display).Alas, the trackpoint has a mind of his own. Vertical movements are fast and may also be precise, I can't tell for sure. However all horizontal movements are noticeably slower. Then, the pointer would move without the stick being touched, for several seconds. The trackpad is useless while the pointer is moving. Precise and fast movements as known from my old thinkpad are practically impossible. What did I try so far trying to solve the problem?- updated bios and driver via thinkvantage system update- on top of that I also tried lenovo bridge via browser, but did not find any newer driver versions- I (de)activated enhanced mouse pointer acceleration, with no effect- I also removed and reinstalled the red dot from the stick - no effect- only deactivating the trackpoint helps, it even increases the precision of the touchpad, which seems to be constantly disturbed by the trackpointWhat can I do? Send the laptop back to lenovo? To me it seems someone was incapable of programming a solid driver for the trackpoint, and I struggle to understand this because my 10 years older thinkpad does not have problems of this kind. Thank you!

Hello, I just bought a new T570 with the standard HDD. After doing some research about upgrading the drive, there are a few things that I just cannot get solid answers for. I know that I could use the Wwan slot and install a 2242 size M.2 SSD drive (if i could even find a good one).I know that I could get an adapter for the HDD slot so that I could install a 2280 size SSD in the HDD bay. The outstanding questions I have are as follows;If I were to install say a Samsung 960 EVO M.2 PCIe in the HDD slot with the adapter in the HDD bay, would it will only be able to run at SATAIII speeds? If this is the case would I be better off just getting a standard SATA SSD with the 500mb(ish) speeds so that im not paying for something thats just gonna be limited because of the systems capabilities?We're talking a significant speed difference between the two interfaces, so I just dont want to exceed what the system can handle.  Everything I have read about this system states that there are only 2 PCI lanes in use for the PCI bus, does this mean that the maximum possible speed of any M.2 drive would be limited because of the 2 vs 4 PCI lanes? If so, does this mean a 50% speed reduction in the drive performance? Do they make some sort of extender cable that would allow me to connect an M.2 drive to the Wwan slot but mount it in th HDD bay? It would eliminate the need for a 2242 size dive and I would just need the housing adapter to make it work. Th... Read more
