Can You Boot From Type C On X! Carbon Gen 5

Q: Can You Boot From Type C On X! Carbon Gen 5

Just created a recovery drive on a dual tip USB 3.1 and Type C thumb drive on my x1 Carbon Gen 5. It will boot the recovery drive from the 3.1 slot but not the Type C slot. It is not recognized on boot up from the Type C tip. Is this by design? If so it is a design shortcoming. Can it be fixed with future firmwhare or is a circuity thing?

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.

Hi, During my visit to US in January and February 2014 I purchased the X1 Carbon 2nd Gen (Type 20A7). I got back to south Brazil where I live, it worked fine until October 2014. Suddenly the X1 Carbon didn't boot anymore and the backlight keyboard keep flickering. I realized it was a known issue and several customers had the motherboard replaced or even the equipment replaced.  I planned to reach the US customer service in a future visit to the US but I could not travel to the US from that time, so I tryed to reach the Lenovo customer service in Brazil and check with them to pay for the service and parts replacement so I could have my X1 Carbon working again. I called and told the problem, they said it was possible to fix and they would send me a budget proposal in 4 work days.The customer service took about two weeks to get back to me and surprisingly the budget I received was of U$ 3,650.00 which is the cost of a new X1 Carbon in Brazil ( I paid U$ 2,180.00 in the US for the top version). I am very upset with Lenovo, I lost all the confidence I had to the brand. My only hope is that a senior executive of US Lenovo headquarter would take this matter and help me get my machine fixed or replaced, even for a reasonable value as I could not use it since October 2014.I really do not have much hope that this will help, I am sure it would be different if I have had the opoortunity to get back to the US just after the problem arose but it is so sad, I was ve...

I have a 4th Gen X1 Carbon (owned for 1.5 years) and yesterday when I opened my laptop, it asked me to sign-in with pin instead of finger scan. However, I couldn't type in my pin given my pin has letters. None of my letter keys are responding but I can type in numbers. Tried the on-screen keyboard through access option and that also didn't work for letters but worked for numbers. Have tried to plug in an external keyboard, which didn't work either. Please help - basically letter keys are not working and can't log on. Thanks

Hi, I have a 2nd gen X1 Carbon (Type 20A7) that I bought about 3 years ago. I bought it configured with a 256GB SSD, but I'm quickly running out of space and would like to upgrade the drive. I have a few questions about this: I believe this generation of the X1 Carbon came with a max SSD size of 256GB, but does the system/motherboard, etc. support larger sizes? Is there a limit? I'm aiming for either 512 GB, or possibly 1 TB.Will the size of a new drive I choose impact speed/performance in any way?Lenovo doesn't seem to sell a 512 GB drive or larger drive for this system. Can I use a non-Lenovo one (i.e. bought from Newegg, Amazon, etc.)? I searched around on the Lenovo forums and it sounds like it's a stanard M.2 drive in the 2nd gen X1 Carbon, so should I be fine as long as I get an M.2 drive?M.2 drives have a few different connector types: B, M, and B+M. Does anyone know which connector type I need to get for the 2nd gen X1 Carbon?I'm planning on cloning my current drive onto the new larger one. What kind of adaptors, etc. would I need to do this? Also, I've never cloned a drive before so please excuse me if this is a dumb question, but are there any issues cloning a smaller drive to a larger drive (i.e. the system only recognizing 256GB on the new larger drive)?Any other things I should keep in mind? Thanks in advance!

A:X1 Carbon Gen 2 (Type 20A7) SSD Upgrade

Lenovo lists 512GB drives as available, but there is no motherboard limit.  On that model, you need one that is described as SATA-3 (not NVMe) and size 2280.  Drives have B + M Key.  Not Lenovo drives should work, but I always suggest checking the seller's return policy in case of problems.

Dear Friends,I have a persistant issue that neither local lenovo techniciens or myself could resolve. As the entire computer was changed and the problem is still going on, this is probably a serie issue. Although, I couldn't find anybody having the same issue on forums. Description of the problem:The bluetooth is pairing and connecting well. But when playing music through bluetooth speakers, whatever is the receiver (UE Boom, Logitech BT Received, Bose...), I experience persistant lagging. Sometimes, it can work well for 10-15 minutes, but usually it lags very frequently. Strange thing is that with any other transmitting devices (T400s, smartphones, low cost computers...) I've never got this problem. A bit frustrating considering the price of a Carbon X1. I also noticed the exact same problem when being in different places. Attemps to solve to problem:I reinstalled Windows 7 and Windows 10 many times, as well as several versions of bluetooth and audio drivers (whether featured by lenovo and intel). Got no improvement. Lenovo service changed the bluetooth chip. No results. Then they changed the mothercard. No results. They even send me a entire new computer. No changes. I must confess I'm out of ideas. Would be the community and/or the support team kind enough to help me? Thank you.

So this is my second X1 Carbon and I had no problems whatsoever with the first one. With this one the problems started after I upgraded to Windows 10: more and more frequent BSODs, sometimes 10/day. I upgraded all the drivers, ran sfc /scannow, used also the DISM resotre health command, no issues found and it still gives me every now and then the blue screen.  What I also noticed is that when it's not plugged in, so relying only on battery, video and sound playback is very choppy and performance slows down. Again, I found no fault with the video drivers and they're the latest version. What am I to do with this one?

I've had the X1 Carbon ThinkPad for around 9-10 months, and after about 4 or 5 months I began experiencing issues regarding the USB ports. I use this laptop for gaming as well as school work. The issues began very intermittently, with both USB ports failing (I use a microphone/headset, and a mouse), by seemingly turning off for 1-2 seconds, followed by them turning back on. 90% of the time the USB ports turned back on, but lately there are times where they do not, and I need to restart my computer to be able to use them again. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Drivers for my mouse and headset, as well as the USB drivers under Device Manager. Additionally, I adjusted my power settings to disable USB selective suspend settings, but that did not fix the issue either. By this point, the USB ports will both fail essentially as soon as I begin playing a video game, and at times when I have several tabs open using Google Chrome. Any advice on how to fix this issue?

Hi All,After working perfectly fine since inception i.e. for years Fn+F3 (screen lock) and Fn+F5 (wireless) apparently stopped working on my X1 Carbon type 3460-1F4 (1st gen) under Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit some time earlier this month (I didn't notice exactly when). Reinstalling current HOTKEY/OSD version 8.86.25 doesn't help. If I go to C:/Program Files/Lenovo/HOTKEY/ and manually start TpFnF2.exe (which I suppose is what's called upon Fn+F3) the screen does lock; if I manually start TpFnF5.exe (which I suppose is what's called upon Fn+F5) I do get Wireless menu. Other Fn+Fx combinations that were also working since inception, e.g. Fn+F4 (sleep) and Fn+F8/F9 (screen brightness), still work. Is there a way to see which application (if any) is currently mapped to each of those combinations? Many thanks in advance!

No help. What to do? Using up to date Windows. April update did not help either.  ----(As a side note since I couldn't find a place to give feedback: it would be nice if the Pro Dock would stop crashing. Or at least would recover without removing the power cord. And I'm pretty sure that at the time I ordered the order page said that an ethernet adapter was included. No such luck. And the integrated on the chip fingerprint reader recognizes me maybe one time out of ten. I originally thought that it was broken, but I guess it just doesn't like me.)

Then I have to connect it to the AC outlet, when the power button lights up with Green. If I disconnect the Power cord after that, the laptop will still power ON with the battery. The battery is fully charged.  This problem is intermittent, but is happenning more often now, hence I like to know if this issue can be resolved just by resetting the laptop or is this a hardware/configuration issue.
