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 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?

Thank you, Don

I have a 4 gig Kingston HC SD card that I use in my camera. However, neither of my 2 computers, Dell Demension E521 running Windows XP SP2 nor my Acer laptop running Windows XP Pro nor 2 computers belonging to 2 of my friends, will recognized the card.

The card records photos just fine and I can download them to my computer via USB connection.

All of the above computers will recognize cards of 2 gig or less capacity.

I purchased another 4 gig SD card manufactured by Sandisk but it, too, was not recognized by the above computers.

What is wrong ?? Is there some software switch that I must activate ??

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'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!

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...

A:Video card not being recognized

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.

Alright, so i have this Asus Geforce GTX 460 768MB ram and i've installed it into my pci-e slot (obviously) and hooked up the 6pin adapter from my power supply and i thought i should be ready to go... however... i'm just getting a blank screen and when i put my 9500GT back in, it works perfectly. 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 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.

So one morning I put some music on my microSD card. The card was inserted in my Samsung Galaxy SII Android phone (it has been in there since Christmas) and the phone was connected to my Windows 8 PC via a USB cable.

I transferred the music directly to the card as it has always came up as a separate drive when I plugged my phone into the computer.

When the transfer was done, I right clicked on the drive and ejected it as I have always done. I verified that the music was on the phone and went to work.

I am not sure what my phone was doing that day, but it felt really hot and the battery drained really fast.

When I tried to listen to the music on my break, but the music was not listed on my list of songs/artists, but the music was still available in the file browser.

Then later all my apps that were saved on the SD card were not there, nor my pictures or music that was on the SD card...

I connected my phone to the computer and it recognized the phone internal storage, but the SD card did not appear. I tried putting the SD card in my Motorola Xoom table (also Android) and it did not recognize it. I tried putting the card in my wife's BlackBerry and it did not recognize it.

I put the card in a Multi card reader and tried it in every USB slot in the computer and it is not recognized (other microSD cards are recognized when used in the card reader).

Hi there folks,

Today I went out happy to buy my new graphics card (Nvidia 9600GT) -> this was an overclocked version (by Nvidia) so it was called the 9600OC.
I came home (still happy) took out the old (and dusted) 7600GS and replaced it with my shining beauty. I fired up my pc and I got a monitor message saying -> No Signal (then my happyness was gone)! I tried plugging it into another monitor, still no signal, so I used my onboard Graph Card and I had an image again, I went to device manager in the control panel and I couldn't find my new Graph card (It was still in my PCI Express thingy), I tried installing the drivers which came with the box and still nothing (after rebooting of course).
How can I resolve this?

After reading the other 2 threads on graphic cards not recognized, I'm still in a funk. I recently installed a Gigabyte Radeon 7750 Graphics card into my computer. The monitor seems to work fine, but running DirectX shows that the graphics card is unavailable. I used Drivesweeper to remove the old NVIDEA files, attempted to update my BIOS (See Below), and updated the driver for my card from the Gigabyte website.

AS for the BIOS. On Acer's website, M1641 was not on the list for available downloads, only the M1640. Heeding the warnings carefully, I decided to contact Acer's help desk. They directed me to Seneca since it was refurbished. Seneca told me to go to Acer because my computer was too old for them to help me.

I have an 8gb PNY SDHC card that I use to transfer pictures between my Canon DSLR and my Dell XPS m1530 laptop, which runs Win 7 Pro. I take pictures with the camera, pull out the card, pop it into my laptop's built-in card reader, and download the images. The card/camera/laptop setup has worked great for me over the past few months.

Long story short, I took some pictures with the camera this morning and tried to get my desktop computer (running windows xp media center) to read the card with it's own built-in reader. Nothing. The card doesn't even get recognized and whenever I click on the correct drive in 'My computer' the window freezes. So I try putting it in a USB card reader...and it worked! But as soon as I tried to get the card to read on my windows 7 laptop, it stopped working completely. Now it won't read on either computer, or the camera. It's as if I'm not plugging in anything at all! I've tried restarting both machines, but it's no use. I can't even format it from my camera. I'm at a total loss here.

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.

Desktop: EL1352G-01w
Graphics Card: Nvidia GT 430
Motherboard: EL1352G (Apparently custom by emachines)

Maybe this desktop wasn't built to take a graphics card.

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).

This can happen because of the windows hybrid shutdown. Try to use reboot instead of shutdown and manual power-on. If this does not work, try to shut down your Notebook and go directly into the bios. Then perform a reboot. It should detect your card after some tries.

It?s fine if I?m just browsing the net or using MS word but try and use stuff like Nero or adobe pdf and it just freezes or runs slow. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer as it?s got me beat.

A:Sound card not recognized

You could try installing Ccleaner from Piniform in a effort to make you computer run *more effectively*
Have you tried downloading and installing a freeware sound driver like Realtek OR downloading the most recent audio driver for your particular machine from the manufacturer ?
There are also USB sound cards you can buy now here's one from Creative

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.

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

A:PCI to IDE card not recognized by MOBO

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.

Hello, I'm back

I have two hard drives and both of them have Windows XP installed on them.. I cannot access my account on the bigger hard drive nor can I for some reason reinstall it on either of them due to a problem with the bios or whatever. So I'm currently running with the small hard drive which still works and all, but it seems as though my sound card is not being recognized. For example, I have my speakers plugged in and nothing is going through.. I also cannot edit the volume of sound and when I hit back space or a message appears (like someone contacting you on messenger) my computer makes a sound as if I have no sound card. On my big hard drive, my sound card works perfectly. I'm confused as to why it works on one and then doesn't work on the other..

Any help would be greatly appreciated..


A:Sound Card Not Being Recognized?

Are your sound card drivers installed on the secondary hard drive? If not find them and install them again.

As for getting your normal OS working again, you should be able to run the installed from windows no matter if the bios is recognizing the disc or not. If you provide more information on the problems with the bios and other hard disk, I would be glad to help you with that.

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?

Many thanks.

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.

A:Solved: SD Card Not Recognized

After much searching and no joy, I'm asking for help.

I've been working out some problems as described here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62801.html after installing new HD.

Yesterday I formatted the HD and installed XP again. Doing so with no other HD in the mix and configuring the new HD as drive C solved many issues.
The system, however still doesn't recognize the graphics card. Everest indicates AGP Status is Enabled, but curiously (to me) shows AGP Device to be the integrated graphics (VIA/S3 Unichrome Pro Integrated). The same VIA/S3 is the only display adapter that shows in Device Manager. I even disabled it thinking that would help. It did not.

I almost forgot to mention what should be 512MB of memory shows as only 447MB (as per Everest). I am planning to go to 1GB, but I'm hesitant to invest in this machine if GPU is failed.

What can I do?

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.

A:Micro Sd HC 4 GB card not recognized

I had the very same problem running XP home trying to read a micro SanDisk 4Gb SD HC. My fix I do not actually understand but what worked was buying a USB micro SD reader that stated specifically that it supported the SD HD (high density) cards. The one I bought was a SanDisk brand. I would have expected all readers to be pinned out identically but there must be a difference somewhere. I did not need to load any software specifically for the SD HD reader.

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.

I have a Compaq Evo on the bench right now (P4/512/XPPE SP1) which does not recognize the sound card on the mobo. There is an additional video card in an expansion slot and the "stock" video port does not work. Could this somehow be related to the sound card not being recognized? If so, is there a jumper or something I can reset to fix this? Thanks!!
