T420 LCD brightness problem after upgrade to 1600x...

Q: T420 LCD brightness problem after upgrade to 1600x...

I have upgraded the LCD of my T420 from a 1366x768 HD panel to a 1600x900 HD+ panel and changed the LCD cable from an HD cable to an HD+ cable.Everything runs fine with the enhanced screen resolution, except one problem.The Fn+Home (increase brightness) and Fn+End (decrease brightness) hot keys are not working properly.I have to press Fn+Home to the full brightness (15) to use the laptop. Anything less than full brightness (1 to 14) gives me a completely dark screen i.e. a blank screen showing nothing as if the laptop was switched off.I have upgraded the BIOS, the graphic driver (Intel HD driver) and the Hotkey integration utility. But this brightness problem still persists - i.e. only full brightness works or a dark screen with anything less than full brightness.Any suggestion is welcome.

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 All, Been reading around and I was wondering if I can exceed 8GB of RAM on the T420? I have read that someone was successful upgrading to 16GB of RAM.  I'll most probably be running Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit. On a fresh SSD. Has anyone achieved this? Thanks,M

Hi, having just purchased a new T420 with 4GB of RAM I would like to immediately upgrade it to 8GB as right now the cost is pretty low. However, I would appreciate some advice on which option to choose. The Crucial Memory scanner gives me quite a few options. Should I buy 1 x 4GB to compliment the existing memory or 2 x 4GB and replace the existing memory? Also there are a few different typesDD3 PC3-12800 CL11 Unbuffered Non-ECC DD3-1600DD3 PC3-10600 CL9   Unbuffered Non-ECC DD3-1333either are available at 1.5v or 1.35v options. There isn't really any price difference between them, but a single 4GB stick is half the price if I was to keep the existing memory. Any help in choosing the best option is much appreciated

Also there are a few different types...

PSREF says the T420 uses "PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3." You can use faster memory like PC3-12800 but it won't have any effect on performance.
 
I would buy a single 4GB SODIMM to add to your existing module. A matched pair will theoretically perform faster but the difference is single digit percentage. You won't be able to perceive it in practice.
 
As for voltage, I'd Google the part number of the SODIMM you now have then buy a second SODIMM that's rated for the same voltage.

Hi there, I am thinking to upgrade my T420 from windows 7 Pro. to Windows 10 Pro.  I have checked on the Lenovo page but they dont seem to have the drivers for Windows 10 yet.  Also, the T420 model is not listed on the Lenovo Windows 10 compatibility list.  Does anyome have more info on this? Did some of you tried installing Win 10 on the T420 series?  PLease let me know, much appreciated. Chris

A:T420 and Windows 10 upgrade

The T420 isn't officially supported by Lenovo for Windows 10. It should still install and run fine, but you'll need to source your own Windows 10 compatible drivers from OEM sites.There are also driver aggregator sites out there like station-drivers (French, but the download button is obvious).

Hi there, I've done my research. T420. i5. Want to go from 4gb (2x2gb) to 8gb (4x2gb) memory. Looking at the following: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkpad-t420/CT3305258http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0ZX4FE6012&cm_re=ddr3l_1333_10600-_-20-148-493-_...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231342 Basically, the choice is coming down to whether I buy DDR3L (preffered) in the exact specs intended for the machine (costly), or less expensive DDR3L in better-than-necessary specs (1600 PC3-12800), or DDR3 (not preferred) in the exact specs intended. Question: Should I be worred about purchasing the DDR3L in better-than-necessary specs? Do I need to be concerned about 1600 when 1333 is recommended? Or PC3-12800 when PC3-10600 is recommended? Opinions? Alternate product recommendations? Thanks.

Hello Guys!! As we know, there are many upgrades we can do to our beloved T420, the most popular are: RAM, SSD, Caddy and last but not least Processor. As my first upgrade was Processor, changing the stock one for a 2760qm and taking a look over Intel website: https://ark.intel.com/es/products/53474/Intel-Core-i7-2760QM-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_50-GHz It saids that supports 32gb RAM, i supposed it might be possible on the T420 with two modules of 16gigs, which wasnt possible on 2011 but today they are available in here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011ISG132/ref=twister_B00H8JVIKM?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Do you think it might be possible? We have seen cases where 16gigs have been reached with 8gigsx2 RAM but do you think it might be possible 16x1 too? i'll wait for your comments Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum!
 
You need a new motherboard (graphic card is soldered). From the links you posted the first one is about a T420S, a different machine with soldered CPU instead of a socketed one.
 
The second link seems to be the right one (is cheaper too )  
 
Could you please post the model number of your T420? It's a 7 digit code that can be found in a black & white sticker on the bottom of the laptop. Please do not post your S/N here.

Hy!I've used my Thinkpad T420 battery charge mode with custom settings: Start charging when below 95% and Stop charging at 99%. Because the battery effectively has never charged full, it cause sudden capacity decreases (for example from 30% discharging to 7%). I got bored to this and changed to automatically optimize battery lifespan. I noticed that every full charge the "Full charge capacity" value decreases. I have charged it 5 times after this settings, and the remaining capacity looks like this: 57.10Wh, 57.05Wh, 57.00Wh, 56.95Wh, 56.85Wh. Is it normal? Is it possible that this setting will kill my battery?

The battery on T420 was not charged, and I received a DOS message that the battery was extremely low before the system shutdown. I attached the power cord to the system and attempted to start the computer, but received the same message. So, I removed the battery and attempted to start the computer with just the power cord attached. Unfortunately, the computer did not start. I know some systems require a battery inserted even if the power cord is attached. Is this the case with T420? If not, is this a power cord issue, meaning that I have to purchase a new power cord? Is this a power cord or battery issue, or worse, a power supply controller problem? I am not a hardware guy.

Beginning today, I opened my laptop from sleep and noticed the display was at its lowest brightness setting. I then tried to restart it to see if that would solve it, no luck. I did some googling and found out it could be a problem with the graphics driver. I then disabled it and enabled it. Now the brightness is at its max settings.

The function (FN) + F4, F5 (the keys to adjust the brightness settings) do nothing. The brightness status will show up on the screen and only change 1 or 2 notches.

I then realized I should have a way to adjust the brightness via the Power Settings in the Control Panel. I even confirmed this with a friend. I should have the sliders to adjust the brightness but I do not. It's very strange.

Hello,

I've been having some problems with the brightness of my desktop PC. I'm not very well-versed in IT but I'll do my best to explain the situation and symptoms.

When I boot up the PC the screen appear to be ok for a second and then it darkens noticeably.

Dear TSF,

I have a small problem about the lay-out of our new community. We set up a new banner, but the brightness from IE has a small difference with the brightness from other browsers (Like Mozilla Firefox).

You see, IE shows the banner a lil bit darker.



Someone knows what's the problem?

Thanks,
sKull
