Q: Thinkpad X131e Chromebook models: 628323U vs 62832...

Does anyone have insight into what difference (if any), there is between these two models of the same Chromebook? I've searched but I can only find that these two models have differing release dates by a few months.

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.)

hi, all, If I bought a 120GB mSATA and replaced the 16GB one in X131e Chromebook, can I install Windows 7 to replace the useless Chrome OS? 





My ThinkPads: T21, X30, X31, X61, X220

A:Install Windows 7 on X131e Chromebook?

Yes.
 
Remember the mSata goes in the WWAN port, so you won't be able to use the WWAN card. Apart from that I don't see any restriction, you could install any Win7 or Win8 or any modern Linux disto ;-)
 
Keep us posted how your installation works!

Hi,  The Chromebook X131e runs off an mSata drive and has a spare SSD slot. I installed an SSD and it shows up in the system configuration. Now I am wondering if it is possible to install Windows (ideally 7) on this SSD and dual boot. Chrome OS off the mSata as is plus additionally Windows off the SSD. I did some online research but was surprised that I couldn't find a solution for this specific scenario. Thanks for your help.

Hello,I tried to make my chromebook into a Linux machine - but I fear that will not happen. I went through the entire process of removing the keyboard etc, and finally moved the switch. However, upon pressing the power button......nothing. Nothing with just the battery, nothing with just AC power, nothing at all. Can anyone point me in the right direction? is there something I missed? Or is this perfectly good laptop just dead weight now?Thanks.

About 6 months ago, part of case/the hinge part started coming loose/becoming seperated every time I opened my chromebook. Once it is closed, I have to push it down and then it stays fairly well together until I open it again. This is just on the right side hinge. Since the chromebook was actually my school's, I brought it to the IT person and they simply put a new case on and charged me $100(Way overpriced). Now, about 3 months later, the same thing started happening again. I also have a Lenovo laptop that this happened to a few years ago, but never was much of a problem. I wouldn't really mind, but since the school would see the problem when I turn my chromebook in for summer and charge me again, I would like to know if it's solvable before spending another $100 on it. I'll also mention the chromebooks my grade got are some of the worst in the district and have been used for probably about 8 years already. If there is any solution, I'd be grateful for the help. P.S. My chromebook also doesn't charge above 55%. If anyone knows why, please comment.

I'm looking to purchase a Chromebook and one online store is listing 2 different models of the 14 G4 with the exact same description. I contacted them to query this but they did not know the difference. I'm not having any look finding the answer myself. Can someone help: The 2 models are: p5t61ea-abup5t65ea-abu  My 2nd question, is the FHD (1920x1080) really avialable in the UK or is this like other brands that I've been looking at where their UK store pages talk about FHD when in reality this is only availble in American and here in the UK we end up stuck with 1366x768?

Hello, I've ordered a thinkpad x131e and i'm currently waiting for the delivery.In parallel, i would like to order a msata ssd card to install it into one of the two mini pci-e ports (for OS installation). i saw in the hardware maintenance manual p63-64 (http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x131e_en_hmm_0b48698_01.pdf ) that the msata ssd card can be installed in the full size WWAN card slot. Questions:- is the full size WWAN card slot is free by default ... i assume yes because wifi card delivered with X131e is an half size Intel Centrino WiFi-N 2230 which should be in other mini pci-e slot (so called wireless LAN slot) ?- what is the size of the msata ssd card that could be installed in the free slot ? There are several lenght for msata ssd card (25, 50 and 70mm) ... i suppose it is 50mm?- there are different types of msata ssd cards : sata2 or sata3 ... do thinkpad x131e support sata3 msata ssd card? Thank for your support and sorry for my poor english level

A:Thinkpad x131e - msata ssd

Hey there Egrad,
 
I?m doing some research for on your SSD upgrade and needed some additional information about your particular machine. At the time of purchase you did not opt for a WWAN upgrade right?
The Gobi3 WWAN is the standard option for the mini PCI-e Slot, has the following Physical specifications:

Approximate height: 4.25 mm (0.1675 in)
Approximate width: 30 mm (1.18 in)
Approximate depth: 50.95 mm (2.0 in)
Approximate weight: 0.012 kg (0.026 lb.)

It lends itself that a 30mm SSD mSATA would be suitable. Hope this helps guide you.

Step 1: Over the summer, sent a few 3367-1Y2 ThinkPad x131e laptops from our school district to repair for various problems.  Some required an in-warranty motherboard replacement.Step 2: For those laptops that received new motherboards, the BIOS on the replacement motherboards installed in the repaired laptops came back updated to version 2.90, the latest available, released in February 2016.  Nothing unusual there.Step 3: Began to try to image the machines prepping for Fall semester; normally, hit "F12" at the Lenovo splash screen, select PXE boot, you get the usual PXE boot screen scrolling by, it sees our Windows Deployment Server, you hit "F12", and you're off and imaging. Step 3 is the problem. After you select, apparently, ANYTHING other than the hard drive from which to boot, i.e., the NIC, or for that matter, an external USB drive you've plugged in, the selection screen happily takes your choice, and then the screen blacks out.  And stays there. And stays there.  Only way out is to hard-power down the laptop. This happens reliably on multiple x131e systems that have all had their motherboards replaced.  I've checked and set every Legacy (or for that matter, UEFI) BIOS setting I can find, and I keep getting the same results.  I'd like to "update" the BIOS level to an older version just to test, but I can't find any older BIOS versions on the Lenovo support site.  I tried "updating" to the s...

Hi,I recently purchased a refurbished Thinkpad X131e from an online retailer, at least to me..it's in virtually 'like new' condition. As this is my very first chromebook device, I'm in the learning process, is there an easy way to determine what my serial numer is, as the original factory supplied label has been removed. There is in fact a 'replacement' label that's been applied to the bottom of my thinkpad, I'm really just wanting to 'verify' that the serial numer that's printed on that label is in fact the correct one. Also, while I'm thinking about it, is it 'normal' for my chromebook to power on automatically when I open the lid without even having to press the power button ?Thanks,David

Pros- 8GB RAM is much needed for ChromeOS power users.- Core i3 and i5 are also much needed for ChromeOS power users.- FHD and higher resolution IPS screens are much needed for ChromeOS power users.- ThinkPad build quality. Cons- Keyboard doesn't have a red TrackPoint mouse??? Lenovo hasn't released a ThinkPad Chromebook with a TrackPoint mouse since the 2013 x131e. That x131e Chromebook isn't for sale anymore, so there aren't any current options for ChromeOS users. Why take it away and not have something suitable for replacing it?

While working on my Chromebook, it is relatively common that under a medium amount of system strain, the system will completely shutdown (especially doing video google hangouts). Upon rebooting and logging in, the system will often shutdown again. Usually, I have to reboot, turn off wifi, log in, and close as many tabs as possible before it force shuts down again. I repeat this process until I can close enough tabs to break the cycle of it shutting down quickly. The laptop itself does not feel especially hot so I would be surprised if it were a thermal issue. I've tried powerwashing but have run into the same issues. Pretty disappointed since the laptop is just over a year old...

Hi all, This may not be the most productive post around, as I'm just looking for information, not a solution. I recently purchased a refurbished x131e chromebook (AMD processor) from the online store. Upon receiving it, I found that the device has an `enterprise enrollment' with some k12 school in Missouri. In order to do anything with computer (including installing an alternative OS), I need the device to be unenrolled. I've contact Google, but it seems that the process will take a few weeks. It seems to me that the device should have been unenrolled when Lenovo refurbished it. Is this the normally the case? Or is there an obvious reason I'm missing that they don't? If there is such a reason, then it seems that Lenovo should inform the customer of refurbished Chromebooks that they may not be able to use the product for up to three weeks following the purchase. Any information on this would be helpful, as I've found plenty regarding the unenrollment of used Chromebooks, but nothing regarding the fact that refurbished Chromebooks may remain enrolled. Thanks!
