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 there. Out of nowhere my two month old T570 started beeping in Windows 10. It's not a BIOS or hardware failure code. Just an on-off-on-off beep forever. Also, the keyboard just doesn't work. I can thankfully plug in a USB keyboard. If unplug the keyboard ribbon connector the beeping immediately stops. But it instantly starts beeping again the instant the connector is reinserted. What's happening here?

Hi, thanks in advance for your help.I have a Thinkpad T570 with a UK keyboard, I would like to swap it with a french one.I did it for many Thinkpad, but I cannot find any french keyboard for this model ... is there any way to find this keyboard? or is there a model of Thinkpad compatible with the T570 keyboard ? Best regards,

A:Thinkpad T570 - keyboard change

There are two vendors and four french keyboards available for your T570:- FRU: 01EN939, Tachi NBL KBD,FR,CHY.- FRU: 01ER552, Tachi BL KBD,FR,CHY.- FRU: 01ER511, Tachi NBL KBD,FR,LTN.- FRU: 01ER593, Tachi BL KBD,FR,LTN. CHY means Chicony and LTN - LiteON.NBL stands for non backlit and BL - backlit. If you ask me, which one vendor will be better, then in the past LiteON made pretty good keyboards and Chicony one of worst in comparison to other. I have seen, that LiteON's keyboards are available on eBay.  Keyboards for T570 are allowed to be replaced by customer, so you'll not lose warranty after replacing keyboard (obliviously, if you don't damage something in the process).

When my T570 restarts, sometimes it stacks at the logo screen like forever. I have to press the power button to kill the power off then it can be Stared normally. Another problem: The X key on my keyboard doesn?t work well, I have to press hard to input letter X. Any suggestions of this? Do I need to replace the whole keyboard?  I am kind of disappointed on Lenovo quality control, how a big company let this small issue happen...

I have been using T410 for 6 years and finally replaced it with a T570. I love the screen, but really hate the new keyboard. Seriously, I'm having physical pain in my right wrist now.  While I can't change the layout of the keyboard, I do notice that they keyboard has a "lighter" feel when typing. My wife has a T460 and the keyboard is far superior, in my opinion. I did a little bit Googling, and it seems, according to a Laptop Mag review, the T570 keyboard has a shorter travel (1.6mm, compared with 2mm on T470) and a lighter required actuation force (60 gram, compared to 70 gram on T470). I'm writing my dissertation on this machine, and I'm seriously thinking about getting an external keyboard. This keyboard is not comfortable at all. Who buys a T series for an inferior keyboard?  Why the difference, Lenovo? Is there a FRU keyboard that offers a 2mm travel and >60g required actuation force?

I got sick of trying to make the open-source unfriendly Realtek wifi card packaged with my X201i work consistently and ordered a (non-Lenovo) Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 card. After attempting to install it i learned about Lenovo's apparent money making scheme to only work with specific cards whitelisted in the BIOS. I've wasted way too much of my life futzing with this ridiculously mediocre laptop to want to waste more time defeating the BIOS for this, so how do i find out if a given FRU# is going to work on my specific model?













Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:Whitelisted FRUs?

To my knowledge, there are no published Whitelist lists, per se.
 
Your best option is to look at pages 161 throough 169 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual where you will find the WLAN and WWAN cards that were offered in this series. If you opt for one of these, be sure to get one that is marked as a genuine FRU. As you have discovered, the generic versions will fail the Whitelist check with the 1802 error.

Have bought several Thinkpads over the years. My x230 is the only lemon. The original system board failed; the board that was replaced under warranty failed; and now that the warranty has expired the second replacement board has failed. So I am done sending the machine to Service and need to get another motherboard from the market.
 
The Hardware Maintenance Manual does not provide FRUs for x230 system boards. I have tried vendor website search funtions but they were no help.
 
Please let me know the FRUs of motherboards to fit:

Hello, all.

I actually watch DVDs on my PC, using the above equipment (Hitachi GD-2500 drive, to be exact, ATI player on Rage 128 card), and am getting pretty durn tired of movies locking up in mid-play. Especially as I've just brought a disc home from the store and it won't work...

My question is general, and three-fold, and I would appreciate any responses from those of you who might be PC DVD movie-watching types like myself:

1. Is there a known difference between one drive's fidelity to a disc in film playback and another? Do some drives actually skip less, lock up less, etc., during a movie?

2. Is there, like question 1., a software reader that is more reliable?

3. Is there any point at all in investing in a new drive (mine's about two years old) to make discs play better?

Any insight(s) you might offer would be greatly appreciated.

I have been using this new T570 for just over a week and have noticed some really upsetting discomfort. After only a few minutes, my eyes become fatigued and I start to experience a strange chilling unpleasantness. The first time this happened, I ended up with a migraine for the rest of the day and got sick.  As a disclaimer, I have normal (20/20) vision and I have never experience any negtaive side effects of using a computer, laptop or phone before. My main driver before getting this machine was a Samsung Tab S2 (AMOLED) and occasionally a normal desktop. I also own an LG G6 (LCD). This tells me that it is not simply the technology of LCD or AMOLED that is making me sick.  I believe the T570 is an LED powered LCD screen (not sure though). This one is FHD with a matte filter.  I have looked up things like PWM but this issue seems to occur whether or not the screen is full brightness.  It took me a week to acknowledge that the issue is actually coming from the screen. I am currently using this with it plugged in to an external monitor and haven't had any negative side effects. Does anyone know what the problem could be? BTW, I also tried changing the resolution (didn't help) and zooming in to 175% (which I thought helped but it didn't). Is this just how these screens are made?Is it somehow bc of the matte finish (hard to believe) or the FHD (really hard to believe)?Is this a defective screen?Did I get stuck with a laptop that had a...

Is it possible to have an SSD together with a HDD in the T570? I spoke to a sales rep in Australia who assured me it was possible, but advised me to contact technical support about the details; I was informed by technical support that it was not at all possible. Plugging an SSD into WWAN slot was specifically excluded by the tech rep as an option. I am asking this because in my T500, with which I have been happy for many years, I had a 256GB SSD for my OS and programs and a 1TB HDD (in the Ultrabay) for my files; the latter could be conveniently removed for transport when necessary. This set-up was not possible in the T560, for which reason I have delayed replacing my T500.

Hi there,So far I've been using a good old T61/T60 blend. Today I received a brand new T570 students' edition (512GB SSD, 8GB Ram, nVidia graphics, UHD display).Alas, the trackpoint has a mind of his own. Vertical movements are fast and may also be precise, I can't tell for sure. However all horizontal movements are noticeably slower. Then, the pointer would move without the stick being touched, for several seconds. The trackpad is useless while the pointer is moving. Precise and fast movements as known from my old thinkpad are practically impossible. What did I try so far trying to solve the problem?- updated bios and driver via thinkvantage system update- on top of that I also tried lenovo bridge via browser, but did not find any newer driver versions- I (de)activated enhanced mouse pointer acceleration, with no effect- I also removed and reinstalled the red dot from the stick - no effect- only deactivating the trackpoint helps, it even increases the precision of the touchpad, which seems to be constantly disturbed by the trackpointWhat can I do? Send the laptop back to lenovo? To me it seems someone was incapable of programming a solid driver for the trackpoint, and I struggle to understand this because my 10 years older thinkpad does not have problems of this kind. Thank you!
