X250 Sim card not recognized (again)

Q: X250 Sim card not recognized (again)

I have recently acquired an X250 Thinkpad for work. As said work takes me well outside of Wifi areas, I have also acquired a SIM card to use with the built-in EM7345. However, while that worked originally (I inserted the card, it was recognized, I changed the PIN), the laptop no longer recognizes the sim when inserted.The solution suggested in another thread (enable WWAN in BIOS) does not apply to me, as it is enabled.My SIM card works in other devices, however, different SIM cards are also not recognized. Any ideas?I've switched the pre-installed Windows 7 for Windows 10, but the changed of PIN was already in Windows 10, so I doubt it had anything to do with that.

Preferred Solution: X250 Sim card not recognized (again)

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 just finished installing an EM7345 WWAN card in my X250 running Win 7 and when I launch Lenovo Mobile Broadband Activation I receive an error that the SIM cannot be read.  The support info for the error tells me that the SIM is not found. When I use netsh mbn sh read int=* from command prompt I also see that SIM is not inserted. I have verified SIM is correctly inserted.I have verified SIM works in another device. Any thoughts?  I have been scouring for guidance on this for quite a while now.

Bonjour à tous,
Windows 10 only recognizes the X20 built-in battery, not the removable one
Only getting 2hrs 5min run time... vs what should be 20hrs+ if both batteries were working
Has anyone seen this problem?
Is there a fix coming from Microsoft or Lenovo?
Windows 10 ne reconnait pas d'autre batterie que l'interne sur ce x250.
Autonomie de 2h5 environ .... contre + de 20h si les 2 batteries fonctionnaient en duo.
Avez vous ce probleme de votre côté ?
Faut-il attendre une mise a jour du coté de Microsoft ou Lenovo ?

Hi, I recently purchased Sierra AirPrime EM7345 for my ThinkPad X250 & when opening the chassis to find already installed in the M.2 slot was a SanDisk 16GB SSD Sata card. There was only one slot for either momery card or WWAN card, I choose to install WWAN card but would also need memory card. How to have both at the sometime? Is it possible to add another M.2 slot or will have to use an external SSD M.2? Thanks.

A:X250: possible to have BOTH M.2 SSD and WWAN card?

wilson638,there isn't separate slot for small SSD. This laptop can be equipped by the 2nd 2.5" drive (SSD including) in the DVD bay via adapter.Note, you have to remove cache application (Express Cache) before removing of the m.2 SSD.

I have an 8GB sd card i used while traveling and upon trying to get the pictures from it the computer does not recognize the card at all, no prompts, nothing. I have tried it in multiple pcs and macs and no response. My Cannon Rebel XS camera says no images found. However, when I plug it into my brother's Cannon PowerShot it actually recognizes and shows all pictures on the card. Does anyone have any reason why this is happening and how I can recover the pictures? I am not willing to just format to make the card work again, I must have these pictures.

I'm adding a video card (a Geforce 9400GT 512MB pci-e 2.0 to a Dell Optiplex 320 computer. This should have been a 10-15 minute job but I've spent a good 8 hours or so trying to resolve this issue.

The computer had on-board integrated video so I disabled those drivers, turned off the computer, plugged in the new video card into the pci-e slot, fired it up, video showed up while plugged into the video card so I logged into windows and then tried to install the drivers. The disc that came with the video card says "No supported hardware is found in your system." I downloaded the most recent drivers from the NVidia site and it said the same thing. I checked the current video adapter being used and it said "VGAsave" so I looked in device manager and there's an ! next to "PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge." I figure this is the problem and why the video card isn't recognized so I look at the properties for that and it says "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)"

I've done a lot of research and reading but I can't find any solution to this. I tried to uninstall the integrated video and completely get rid of the drivers using a driver sweeper program and that didn't work. The only setting in the BIOS for video is to either have "Auto" or "Onboard". I have it set to Auto but there is no way to disable the onboard video card within the BIOS. I've u... Read more

I've removed all traces of my old nVidia card's software. (My 9500 gave up the ghost not long ago when the fan failed and the GPU burned up) My computer did not recognize the new card, an ATI. I manually installed the drivers from the disk that came with the new card, but the computer refuses to acknowledge that there's even a card connected. The Device Manager can't see it. The cooling fan runs, but the monitor remains stubbornly blank whenever I reboot. It is indeed seated properly, before you ask. My question is this--what might cause a computer to fail to recognize hardware? A BIOS error, maybe? Motherboard failure? Any advice you can give me is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I have an ATI Radeon 4650 card (dual DVI ports) which is working perfectly. That is in a PCIe slot on the board. I have two monitors running well. I also have third monitor which I'm trying to get running but can't. I've installed one card in the second slot (PCI slot) that is the NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS PCI card. It too has a DVI port and also a VGA port. I'm aslo running Win7 enterprise 32-bit.

The problem is that the PCI card is not even being recognized as being connected to the system. It's fan is spinning, but Windows refuses to show it in the Display Adapter listing. I've also tried placing it in the other available PCI slot on the board and it's not being recognized there either.

I've scanned for hardware changes and nothing shows. I try installing the latest driver version from NVIDIA but it refuses to install b/c it doesn't see any card that the drivers would work for. I've even tried unzipping the driver package, and then manually installing the drivers as "legacy hardware" and it still will not see the drivers or card.

I'm stumped. I also had a problem getting Win7 to recognize an older VGA card at the same time with the ATI Radeon card. Well, it saw both cards, but would not turn them both on at the same time. If the VGA card was in it would only display on that adapter and not the ATI one. If you took the VGA card out then it would display on the ATI one. But it won't show to all the displays. It's almost as if you can only have one graphics card ... Read more

I installed this USB PCI card:

5 Ports High Speed USB 2 0 PCI Card Expansion Kit 4 External 1 Internal for PC | eBay

when I booted, I didn't get any alert that new hardware was installed.

I think I installed it correctly into the motherboard.

Is there a driver that I need to install? or it's probably becuase it is not installed correctly?


A:USB PCI card not recognized

The best way to see if it's working is to try it. If it isn't working, then yeah you need drivers. As to which ones, well you'll have to figure that out since I can't tell what card it is. You should have gotten some documentation with the card telling you where to at least look for drivers.

Good luck.

I installed the Promise ultra 100 card and its drivers. There's no yellow mark beside it in Device Manager and no hareware problems in system tools. I installed the Maxtor 40 HD with the ATA 80 wire cable and tried to fdisk it to partition. Comp could not locate a fixed disk. I went to Promise support site and it suggested changing HD in cmos from auto to none. However, on this site, one of your threads on pci controller cards, it was suggested that the onboard pci controllers be disabled.

I haven't tried Promise suggestion yet because I was down for most of the day after trying to reboot with the original HD re-installed. I had to make changes in the bios to finally solve the problem. What steps would you recommend me taking to determine origin of non-disk recognition problem?

Recently ran a bunch of malware / antivirus programs to get rid of a zeroaccess trojan. (malwarebytes, mcafee, cccleanter, eset, hitman). Was finally able to get rid of the viruses in the services.exe and desktop.ini files. However once they were cleaned and got everything back to normal, I'm having problems with my video card being recognized by anything. Only recognizing the Intel® and not my Nvidia gtx 560M. It's not listed on the dxdiag page, not showing up as a selectable option for The Elder Scrolls Skyrim. Was working fine a few hours ago. It's listed under device manager just not showing up anywhere else. Just wondering if getting rid of those viruses might have deleted some needed .dll or something. Already tried re-installing the updated drivers and updated my bios. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Video Card not recognized

Hi tbcollins,I understand that your card is not being recognized correctly. This could have been from the payload of the malware. The malware may have deleted the driver files, or registry entries. Could you please press (Windows+R) and type "mmc devmgmt.msc" then locate your Nvidia GTX 560M under (Display Adapters >>Your Card) if it is there, and has a yellow or red exclamation mark or X mark, then right click the device and select "Properties" and copy the contents in "Device Status" in this forum using the <> button at the top of the editor. If there is no device, please report. Also, because this is a mobile graphics card, it indicates that you are using a laptop. Could you please specify which laptop you are currently using so I can better identify the issue?

I am having allot of trouble with my Nvidia GeForce 2 MX card. Each time windowz boots it wont load the card, I get an error code 10 in the display properties in device manager.

I can reinstall the driver, it loads and the card runs fine until I restart, then it is not loaded again and I have to do this again, each reboot of the system. This started a day ago. I have updated the drivers from Nvidia, downloaded the recommended driver from MS site, restored original drivers from disk (not certified, so I removed them and went to the manufacturers updated again.)

I am completely stumped, can anyone think of why the drivers dont stay, and the device wont start when windows is started?

Is there any way to remove the drivers manually then reboot and let hardware manager find the card (it wont let me remove it in the device manager because it says windowz need the device to start)

Hi all,

I have a Dell Laptop with Windows 8 which it came with from Walmart.

I'm using a micro SD card with my music player. And i'm repeatedly inserting it into the SD slot just below the touchpad of the laptop, with an adapter. I'm updating files on that card, and so far the file browser window has been popping up every time i inserted that card.

Today something happened, i think, i extracted the card too quickly after requesting a safe removal. It might have been a moment before it actually got unmounted.

After that, the SD card slot virtually stopped working. I push in that card and nothing happens.

I tried pressing F5 in My Computer, "search for new devices", checked Auto-Start settings and even formatted that card with my music player ? all to no avail. The card itself seems to work fine with the player; and i also tried inserting a USB stick to see if the USB ports still work ? they do.

So it's just that SD card slot not responding to the intrusion of the card. No red flags in the Device Tree either.

What would you suggest to get that port back to operation?

I just did a clean install of win 98 on this Dell Dimension XPS R350. It was previously running Win 2000. The video was excellent at 32 bit. Now for some reason all I can get is 16 or 2 colors. Device Mgr says the display adapter is STD PCI graphics adapter [VGA]. The card that is installed is a Diamond Multimedia inc. -- Fire GL 1000 Pro. I have the drivers for the card but I think the card is just not being recognized. If it was Id be able to install the correct drivers. Ive tried removing the adpater in Device mgr but on a reboot it just wants to install the same VGA adapter. Ive gone into system config and checked around but didnt find anything even though I dont know what Im looking for. I did the system reset with the M/B jumper and then put all the settings bac to default.
What am I doing wrong here???

A:Video card is not recognized

Wait why did you go from Windows 2000 back to Win 98? Does the Video Card support Win 98, does it have drivers for that OS? You get 16 to 2 colors because of the driver isn't the right one or it go corrupted. It needs to be re-installed again.. Remove the old ones then install the new one.

I have an old Windows 98 SE computer, and I reinstalled Windows without making a backup of all the drivers. (stupid, I know... I wasn't really thinking about what I was doing)

A friend built the computer for us a long time ago and upgraded a lot of it a few years ago. It has an ECS L7VMM3 motherboard and an ASUS V8170 MAGIC graphics/video card. The motherboard has an onboard VGA port, which is what my monitor is connected to. I am trying to install the driver for the graphics card, but I'm having trouble doing so.

It's obvious that it isn't working, mostly because when I plug the monitor into the card it doesn't work. I tried downloading the graphic card's driver from the ASUS website, but whenever I try to install it (by right clicking on the desktop, choosing properties>advanced, then changing the driver), I think it changes the driver for the onboard graphics rather than the graphics card, because it still doesn't work.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might get my graphics card to be recognized?

A:Graphics card not recognized

The video card may have software that needs to be installed as well as the drivers to ensure correct functioning. Asus may provide this software for you to download, as well as additional support on thier website. Also, is it listed in the device manager ?

I've been trying to install a new graphics card into my desktop. However, when I installed it, the computer doesn't recognize it. Meaning there's no response from the desktop besides the fan moving.

Nothing is shown or changed in the Device Manager.

When I tried to install the drivers it'll say "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit". The times I tried installing the drivers from the site, it'll reinstall the integrated one.

When I try to connect the monitor to the card, I get a blank screen.

I tried the BIOS and uninstalling the current drivers. The BIOS doesn't have any option to disable the on-board graphics.

Everything I tried so far have been useless, the desktop won't recognize it. I've seen a lot of people with a similar problem and have been able to solve it while I was searching google. Off those people, I tried many methods. NOTHING CHANGED. It's as if I never install the card to begin with.

Hello ZeroKelvin. Welcome to the Forum.

Well, I just happen to be playing with an E-Machines box that someone threw out right now. So I checked the BIOS and you are correct - there is no setting to disable the on board graphics chip.

If I have time today I will look and see if there is a jumper on the motherboard to disable the chip. No promises! (Gotta get a contract done).

My motherboard no longer recognizes my AGP video card.

The mobo is a Abit SG-80 motherboard w/onboard video and the video card is an ATI AIW 9600 AGP w/256mb, 500w ps.

The real headscratcher here is that if I take another AGP card (ATI 7000) the card comes up rather than the onboard video. I have put the AIW into another computer and the video card works. So, the mobo slot is good and the video card is good.

Once in a blue moon the AIW does come up but it is really hit and miss and lately I can't get it working even with reseating. I have also flashed the BIOS to the most recent with no success.

Any ideas? Is the card or mobo defective?

I kept both in at same time, but i couldn't get the GTX460 to be recognized in Device Manager. I put in the drivers DVD that came with it and it just told me that I needed to "install the VGA asus card"... so i guess it's not recognized at all.

But the fan is spinning on the card and the 9500 GT works flawlessly. There are no beeps when i turn computer on...

I'm not really sure how to troubleshoot from here to get it to work...

I am having a problem with memory cards (SD) contents being recognized on a Windows 7 Pro machine. I am using an internal card reader, and have virtually eliminated it being a hardware problem because a new replacement unit gives the same results.
The first time a card is placed in the reader after the computer is booted, the card is recognized but not the contents. In Windows Explorer, the card is designated "Removable Disk (H)". When I attempt to navigate to the contents, a window opens titled "Insert Disk", prompting that a disk be inserted into the drive. The card is already in the slot.
I can correct this on subsequent card insertions by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" icon in the system tray. When clicking on the specified card/device (only item showing) I am prompted that "Removable Dish (H)" is currently in use". There are no applications open including Windows Explorer. Of the choices given, (Cancel, Try Again and Continue) selecting Continue results in an indication that it is safe to remove the hardware.
When I remove the card and replace it, I don't get the expected Autoplay prompt, but when I open Windows Explorer the disk shows with the same drive designation, but this time with the volume showing instead of "Removable Disk". I can then navigate and find files and folders on the card.

I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP and now the PCI card isn't being recognized in the Device Manager. If I need USB 2.0 drivers, where can I get them?

you can run a search and type the "brand "(tag)name of your hardware ... then search the model of your pci usb card .
also check the m/b company to find a driver that fit your system

Hey guys,

I recently installed Windows 7, and most seemed to be fine. However, I just moved to college for the semester and I usually use wireless at school. I have a wireless card/adapter and it used to work fine on XP, but Windows 7 doesn't seem to recognize it at all. I checked device manager and the only network adapter is 'NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller'. Under 'Other devices' is 'Network Controller' with a little '!' next to it. This may be the wireless card, but I don't know how to make it work.

I really need to get this wireless working, otherwise I could be screwed. I never removed the card so it should be in there. Not sure why windows 7 is not recognizing it (in fact, I used to get annoyed when the 'Wireless network detected' bubble popped up on XP. Now I want nothing more!)

Hi all,

My daughter has a satellite s50-b-13e with Windows 10. This laptop has both an intel graphics and an AMD Radeon graphics card but it seems the AMD is not recognized. There is no mention anywhere in the configuration of the AMD and Furmark doesn't find it either. I suspect the driver is simply missing. Where can we find a windows 10 driver for the AMD Radeon 7 to solve this problem?

Hi there,

I'm putting together a new computer and got stuck with something. I'm hoping you can help. By the way, yesterday I posted a question about cable connections (power sw, hdd led, power led), but that's not important right now. There's something else that is much more urgent.

Here's the info on my system:

Motherboard: ASUS M2A-VM AM2 Micro ATX
Case: from an eMachines T3104 I had lying around (don't worry, though... I upgraded the PSU)
PSU: Thermaltake TR2-430W
CPU: AMD 64 X2 6000+ with stock heatsink and fan
RAM: 2x1GB (Crucial DDR2 PC2-4200)
HD: Seagate Barracuda 250GB (7200RPM) IDE
Optical Drive: CD/DVD-ROM (IDE)

I also had to install an IDE port card on one of my PCI slots, since my motherboard only came with one IDE connector. Here's what it says on the box: IDE RAID 2 Port PCI Host - PCI 2-channel Ultra ATA/133 IDE host controller based on SIL0680, with RAID 0, 1IO+1 function. I'm leaving that one for the CD/DVD-ROM and connecting the hard drive directly to the mobo.

And that's where the problem lies. When I turned on the system for the first time and went to BIOS setup, the motherboard showed the HD as primary master, but did not show the CD/DVD-ROM at all. When I exited the setup, there was an option to enter the RAID utility (press F3), which I did not do. But along with that option I could see information on the CD/DVD-ROM. However, the computer did not boot from the CD (I had already changed th... Read more

Silicon Image is evil. You should never use their products..

What you are seeing is exactly how it should be and how it is with all add-on controllers. The controller card and the controller on your motherboard are two completely separate things. Also, the motherboard BIOS and the controller BIOS are totally independent. You will never see things attached to the controller in system BIOS or vice versa.

It is normal for IDE controller cards not to support booting from CD. Read the product manual to see what exactly works. Read The Friendly Manual.

As for booting from devices connected to the controller card.. You may have to tell your motherboard BIOS to boot from "other" or "SCSI" device. You may also have to explicitly configure booting in the RAID BIOS. Read The Friendly Manual.

It common that (crappy) IDE controller cards do not support booting from optical devices. Read The Friendly Manual.

You probably have to configure your hard drive as a RAID0 "array" in the RAID BIOS to make it usable. Since it is a (crap) SiI device, then you may even have to load special drivers using a floppy disk to make it play with Windows. Read The Friendly Manual.

I had an older Ethernet card in my PC, that I needed for an older computer (From which it originally came)

I reformatted the old computer, installed the Ethernet card then installed Windows.

Well, it lights up, but it isn't recognized, by Windows. When I tried to install the drivers, it also couldn't find it. The Ethernet card is an Intel Pro 100 S

Any ideas?

A:Ethernet card not being recognized

well you probably have to install the drivers for it to work at all, and if you just search for drivers it will most likely look in your hard drive, were chances are they arent there

therefore what you need to do is get on another computer and download the driver, and save it to a flash drive or something like that and take it to the other computer and install the driver that way

Hi all,

I'm really glad I stumbled across this forum whilst on a mad scramble to find an answer to my question.

I installed the 7022 x86 version of Windows 7. Everything installed fine and there were driver issues which I anticipated but my Ethernet port is not working on W7 or any other OS for that matter.

It?s a very strange situation. After it was not seen I W7 I booted from my 2nd drive which has Vista on it and it was not seen there so I booted from my XP drive and it was not seen on there either.....

I have re-downloaded all the drivers for each version of the OS but none are making the NIC discoverable.

I have an nVidia 680i SLi & I am using the on board port.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would love to get into W7 and start using it fully.

Thanks very much.

Hello Milan0, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check in the BIOS to make sure that the LAN port is enabled.

Hope this helps,

Friends: I am trying to install a ATI Radeon X300SE PCI express graphics card into a IBM ThinkCentre S51 computer to give me SVIDEO out. After installation, the computer refused to boot up and gave a set of beeps. After browsing a few sites, I was told I had to cover some pins with cellophane tape (from pin 8 through the rest on the larger leg of the card). I did this and now the computer would boot but the card is not recognized at all. I loaded the drivers and updated the BIOS but same result. Has anyone been down this road before? Thanks for any help. Windows XP Pro.

My parents use an SD card with their Casio digital camera. Anyhow upon arriving at a store to get some pics printed, the card reader at the store would not recognize the card. They then put the card back into the camera and the camera does not recognize it either. Apparently right before they went into the store to make the prints they were looking through the pics on the camera and deleting what they didn't want, so it seemed to be working fine, then all of a sudden not.

They gave me the card. I have a media reader on my pc and I tried putting the card in while watching the explorer window. My G drive (media reader) recognizes that something was inserted but it does not recognize the contents of the card, it asks me if I want to format the drive when I click on it. So, three questions:

1) What's going on?
2) Can I rescue the pics on the card now?
3) If not, will formatting the card enable me to be able to use it again, even though all will be deleted?

Thanks in advance.

AMD Athlon XP 64 3200+
Former video card: Gigabyte GeForce 6600 GT
Test card: Gigabyte GeFroce 7300 GT
New card: XFX GeForce 8600 GT

Right, rather long story to get into.

My computer's been regularly freezing and forcing hard reboots (video buffer stops refreshing, sound loops) for a while. It would work fine every so often. I attributed this to heat.

Two days ago computer froze. Upon a hard reboot the screen was garbled - displayed gibberish on the BIOS boot screen. You could kind of make out the Energy Star logo but all text was garbled with vertical lines streaking the screen.

So I tested this again with the 7300gt I pulled out of another comp. The computer booted up fine. I stuck the 6600 into said other comp and display was garbled. Video card was the issue, I got a new card.

Today I got the new card (8600gt) and put it in. I booted up into PnP VGA and started downloading the new drivers. Right after I finished the download the comp froze. Hard reboot got me into a strange POST error which I found out was this:

AwardBIOS -- The only AwardBIOS beep code indicates that a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information. This beep code consists of a single long beep followed by two short beeps. Any other beeps are probably a RAM (Random Access Memory) problem.Click to expand...

I looked into it and ... Read more

You can replace the BIOS by going to the manufacturers web site and looking up that motherboard, then downloading it to a disc, and installing it in SAFE mode. Then
You must delete or disable the old video drives in Device manager, and install the new ones as well.
If you cannot see the Device Manager in System ->Hardware->Device Manager, then you need the help of a computer bench.

Hi there,

We have just bought a radeon 7000 pci video card but when we put into the slot computer freezes on startup. We are running Windows 2000 on an HP Vectra 400. We aren't sure if it's a Windows problem or the computer but have tried everything including disabling all the graphics accelerators and video drivers and nothing works.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I need help... I went to install my new D-Link Ethernet card, but when I booted up my machine with the card in it, the "New Hardware" wizard did not come up. So, I tried to do it the other way (start > settings > control panel > Add New Hardware), but that didnt work either. I installed the diskette that came with it, but the computer doesnt know what the drivers are there for, because it doesnt know there is a Ethernet Card in the back. I am really stuck. I have all the drivers on the diskette, so If anyone knows the problem, please let me know...

Hi. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated!

So, two weeks ago I bought a desktop PC from HP. I wiped the drive to get all their vapor ware off, installed my software and everything went fine. Windows Update recognized the hardware on my machine and downloaded and installed the appropriate drivers after the wipe.

Here's the problem. My girlfriend followed suit two weeks later and asked me to do the same thing for her. Our machines were slightly different but for the most part I expected a similar experience. Except it wasn't. This time Windows Update failed to recognize the Video Card after the wipe.

So now she has this nice video card sitting in her machine using a Standard VGA Adapter instead of the Radeon drivers it needs. No matter how many times I download and install the Catalyst software from ATI's site it doesn't catch. What am I doing wrong?

Do I need to flash the BIOS? Is that too drastic? If so, is there a place I can go with instructions on how to do it?

Thanks again for any help you can offer. Over the years I've done this fresh wipe routine for friends and family many times and this is the first time I've had this happen!

Have you tried getting the latest driver from AMD for your card and Windows 7 64 bit?

If not, please get it and try to install it.
