Q: Lenovo X1 Carbon 2016 Windows 10 Build

Hi All So im looking to build my new X1 carbon with Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit, i have the iso on a bootable USB pen, but i cannot get the system to boot from the usb with secure boot on. I would like to take advantage of the UEFI boot, i can turn off the secure boot and it will build as normal, but after installing all the drivers, i put UEFI secure back on and it wont do anything. Am i missing something here? Regards Stu

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi Guys, I am a former X301 owner, whom ventured back to Thinkpad and bought a X1 Carbon (G4, 16GB,i7,52GB, LTE, FHD) and I must say first impression is really good. It feels like a better X301 in terms of hardware, keyboard and so forth - not to mention the screen is leagues above the old X301 despite me choosing FHD over WQHD. So fundementals of the purchase are ticking all hardware boxes. However, here is the let down:- My laptop arrives with Win7 Pro with all the bells and whistles of an X model. The shortcut brings up all the tools and it just feels like home when I had X301 (Win7 was in its prime)- Then I upgrade to windows 10 and there is mostly just a standard windows 10. It doesnt feel much thinkpad like in windows 10. Have I completly missed the upgrade how-to or is lenovo not providing same look and feed in both Win7 and Win10 ? SImple example - the classic battery gauge in toolbar which i found some substandard lenovo remake of ('lenovo battery gauge'), which didnt show hours left.  I had to go and get the third party batterybar to do the job. Further, the shortcuts that normally would give me Accesss Connections and show me the Watt usage of my Thinkpad are nolonger existing and it gives me the windows settings instead. Im a happy X1 owner, but had I known the thinkpad came with Win7 and mediocre Win 10 features after upgrade, I would probably have bought a macbook or similar which offeres no integrations but drivers a...

Hi, trying to get a Windows 7 Install done on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB w/ Samsung950 Pro. Bios 1.14 (latest as of May 2016)Special issue is, I need to get it done in a Legacy mode (BIOS,MFT style). I was able to install Win7 based on a win7 image that got the 950pro drivers and the USB3 drivers infused through NTLITE, and then I build an image with Rufus 2.9 (both UEFI/GPT and UEFI/MFT) worked, with the X1 BIOS was set up to UEFI only with CSM.BUT I need to to run on the BIOS setting 'Legacy' and in MFT style, b'cause the special Win7 installer I need to use does not support anything else. I know, sounds weird, but..... . So- is there a fundamental limitation against booting / installing a Win7 on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB - Samsung950 Pro in Legacy 7 MFT mode?

Hi everyone,

I'm facing problem with Kaspersky Total Security 2016 and Windows 10 build 10586. When I turn my computer on, it said that both Kaspersky and Windows Defender turned off. But when I check, Kaspersky seems normally (open app windows normally, check and update virus databases normally, check task manager and see Kaspersky services). What's problem with Kaspersky on Windows 10 build 10586, it has no problem with build 10240 before. Is there anyone facing this problem, too?

Hello,I am using X1 Carbon 2016 with OneLink+ and 27 inch 4K Dell monitor. It works all right with 60Hz.I would like to know, if it is possible to connect two 4K 60Hz monitors to the system?I understand, that OneLink+ supports two 4K monitors only with 30Hz and this is out of question. I need 60Hz on both of them. So, can I connect one through OneLink+ and another to MiniDP on notebook itself? Theoretically, it seems OK, because Intel HD 520 graphics itself supports two 4K 60Hz monitors and OneLink+ 30Hz limitation is related to speed only (if I am right). Would be grateful for any advice. Thank you.

Again, not sure why Lenovo is so hard headed? Resuing to listen to what the MAJORITY of people want. * No OLED displays? How long do we have to wait for this? 2020? * SD Mini slot in the back? Very inconvient. No one is going to use it. (regular SD card on the side works better).* CTRL and FN button still in the wrong location. Why again do we have to fix it in bios when Lenovo can easily make it right? No SD card on my 2015 is the most annoying thing ever. Yes I have a stupid USB SD reader but c'mon. What's the point of thin and light if we have to carry a bunch of add-ons. Especially when the SD card slot doesn't even take up any space. Stupid move. Lenovo is losing sales and customers and it's due to them being out of touch with consumers.

The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop for Lenovo? I doubt that. I think it sells very well for Lenovo. You say the majority of people want an SD card reader? Many mobile systems donīt have one anymore, and they still sell. This is a niche requirement, and Lenovo, who is a company with a wide lineup, has other models to fullfill that need. Aka the ThinkPad T460s, which is dimension and weight wise almost exactly the same as your X1 Carbon 2015, but with an SD Card reader, Ethernet, upgradeable RAM etc.

 I recently picked up an X1 Carbon with a WQHD screen while travelling in the US.  On first boot, I noticed a column of dead pixels and promptly put in a service ticket for the issue.  As with my previous Lenovos, I buy the 3yr NBD Onsite service. Anyhow, the LCD was backordered and after a week (yesterday) the screen was replaced.  Here is where the problem starts. The original screen in the machine was:LP140QH1-SPF2 The replacement screen installed is:LP140QH1-SPF1 Both screens carry the same Lenovo part number 00HN877, but they are drastically different in quality. The original screen was paper white and very bright where I was using it indoors at 80% and in my vehicle at full brightness without issue. The replacement has whites that are yellowish and when at full brightness it is not as bright at the original screen was at 80%.  It is very dim and difficult to use outdoors. I have spent over $3k CAD for this ultrabook and I am not happy about the difference in replacement screen model.  Is there a way I can get the correct screen back in my machine?

I've been trying to find a solid review on the internet comparing these two X1 systems head to head, but no luck so far. The touchscreen and stylus capabilities of the X1 Yoga are nice but not absolutely necessary. I'm worried if the build quality and reliability matches that of the X1 Carbon (X1 Yoga has more moving parts, raising keyboard platform, more mobility in hinges, laptop mode changes reliability, touchscreen reliability, etc), in light of ongoing Lenovo quality control issues. Not that the X1 Carbon is without issues of its own. If the touch and pen capabilities are a "nice to have" feature for someone and not required, are they more trouble then they're worth, given quality issues? Or are the concerns overblown? Would also like to know if the QHD screens used in both systems are identical in terms of brightness, color accuracy, and viewing angles. Same screen manufacturer? Do both keyboards have the same key travel and quality of feel while typing? Would be great if there was a review comparing both directly. Has anyone had hands-on experience with both? Thanks!

I just received my x1 carbon, just a day before relocating to Spain. I didn't have time to check it out thoroughly before I left, but everything seemed fine. When trying it out upon arrival I imediately noticed a rattling sound from the touchpad. Just tapping the touchpad lightly produces noise, not to mention doubble tapping which is aweful. The touchpad seems to be centered and in level with the rest, but doesn't appear to be screwed on properly. A lenovo store here in Madrid only had the cheaper models, but the touchpads on these where all firm like a macbook. I'm a little hesitant about calling the spanish lenovo service as my spanish is severily limited atm. Has enyone else experienced this? Thanks.

Dear all,I recently got a new carbon X1 2016 version and I would like to connect it to my display at work (samsung U24E590, 4K) and my TV at home (Panasonic, 4K). As especially my TV doesn't have a display port, I would like to connect over HDMI. In the manual, it says that HDMI connection allows resolutions up to 4096x2160px. However, when I connect my Samsung display, I get only options up to 1920x1080px in display settings (win 10, x64). I downloaded and installed the newest Intel HD Graphics 520 driver from the Lenovo support page. How is it possible to use full 4K resolution over HDMI connection? Anybody an idea? If possible without any expensive adapters etc. Many thanks for your help!

Hi all, I would like to share my recent experience of Thinkpad X1 carbon (4th 2016) screen brightness problem, and how this problem been solved. The laptop cames good and the F5 and F6 function for screen brightness adjusting is OK. Other methods, like in the setting menu and battery menu,  to adjust the brightness are all OK.After one hour or one day or some short time, you will find you cannot adjust the brightness. Even the battery & power options are not working. The problem comes from the driver. First I thought it is the problem of driver of monitor (wide viewing angle high density flexview display 2560x1440 driver). I uninstall, update, change...but none of them work.Finally, I find it is the problem of intel hd graphics 520 . There is another evidence that during the time only this driver of intel hd graphics 520 has been updated automaticly to the latest version!So I uninstall and roll back to the version 20.19.15.4331 and the problem is solved.I did not check the lates version of this driver. But I am sure that the latest version of intel hd graphics 520 has conflict with the lenovo driver for screen brightness! I am sure there are other people face the same problem after the update of hd graphics 520 driver. Any engineer please check it!

My serial numer for the x1 carbon 4th gen is: xxxxxxxxxxxx.
 
I spent  $3,000 custimizing the x1 carbon 4th gen with 1TB PCI-e SSD. I thought I would got a laptop for me to use 3+ years, as I had a W540 used for 3+ years with 0 problems and very quite (but it is too heavy to carry it around).
 
However, as soon as I started this new laptop, the fan noise pissed me off. The noise is totally unacceptable, becuase I didn't start any programs yet (and it runs a fresh Win 7 Pro OS), the noise can be heard about 15 ft away in my bed room. I tried to restart for a few times, the noise comes back about 15 seconds after the system is reboot.

Can anyone from Levono help me geck this issue, and provide me a solution? I really hate to send the laptop back, and exchange a laptop probably with the same issue (if this is a Bios problem).

Hi there, Today my X1 Carbon 2016 suddenly refused to come out of sleep mode. After a reboot, it refuses to go any further than the boot splash screen. I can enter the BIOS setup screen (F1) and do changes there, but booting anything results in a reboot, including e.g. PXE (never makes it to the actual PXE boot, reboots before that) or even the Lenovo Diagnostics tool (also reboot before making it to the tool). I tried doing a hard reset through the reset button at the bottom of the laptop but it didn't seem to help. Is this a known problem? Should I just get a motherboard swap? I'm a bit disappointed since I've owned the laptop for less than 4 months now... Cheers,

Hello! Since I just started to use this laptop recently, I noticed something weird when pressing "space" button. It is often very loud compared to other buttons and I started to look a bit closer. It seems, that if pressed down from the middle or lower part of the "space" button, it somehow rubs against the frame and feels a bit stuck. It depends on the direction, but I feel it's something that should not be there. Has anyone else experienced it? Also when looked close, it seems that frame under "space" is a bit curved. Laptop definately has not had any falls or bumps, so it has to have been from the start. Interesting that user before me didn't notice it, because it is very noticeable. Any thoughts? Also how to act about it? I also link a short video for demonstration purpose: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8f8wN1bZI3KVE03Q2lNazRyZm8  Thank you in advance for any input on this!J.

Check that the screws are tight on the left. Might be a defective item, since it's just 2 weeks, the retailer should be able to exchange it. If you bought it from Lenovo directly, they have a RMA exchange program.

Hello, I have this problem for month now :I close my X1 Carbon lid before going to bed, and in the morning, when I resume it from hibernation, the trackapd and trackpoint are totally unresponsive. Everything else work fine, I just have to wait, sometimes 20/30sec, sometimes a whole minute, to have the trackpad working. This is very frustrating to have a computer resuming so fast from hibernation but being unable to use it. I have the latest BIOS (1.15), latest UltraNav driver (19.0.17.98).Tried several drivers uninstallation/reinstallation, several fresh windows install, problem is still present. Actually on a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit (Anniversary update).

I have a brand new x1 carbon type 20FB. All seems to work fine apart from when I use an external moniter of any kind it always seems to display at a poor quality on the external screen with the laptop display staying at a high standard. The resolution is set high enough to give a good clarity (currently using 1680x1050 on company monitor) but the image is pixalated and the contrast is weak.  I have tried using HDMI monitors, VGA monitor, TV, projectors through the HDMI outputs and the onelink docking station, played with every setting I can find, tried using an external screen only and switch the laptop screen off, but nothing seems to generate a good image. I would suspect that it was just me, as most things seem to be, but we recieved three of these laptops at the same time and all have the same issue. Does anyone have a solution or is the intel 520 HD graphic card just not up to scratch?

Hi all, I have just recevied a shiny new ThinkPad X1 4th generation. It is model number 20FBCTO1WW and it is running BIOS v1.14. I am using it in conjunction with the OneLink+ dock (model DU9047S1) which is running driver v1.10.10. They work fine together except when I reboot the X1 as it fails to reboot and just hangs after the Lenovo splash screen. The loading of Windows 7 doesn't even seem to start. I know there were similar issues a few years back with earlier versions of the X1 but I have not heard any issues with the 4th gen model. Here is the issue from older versions of the X1: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-2-OneLink-unable-to-use-Ethernet-po... Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a proper resolution. Thanks,Ian
