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.

Hello all......I have been reading many posts about using a gobi 2000 on the x201 laptops.  I got one installed on my x201 and though it is recognised in the device manager with no issues.....I can not get a GPS signal to use with Windows 10 maps.  I am running Win10 32bit   10586.545Gobi 2000 HS-9205   #3263 I have no need to use the 3g data and do not have a sim card installed.  Will the GPS work without an active sim card? I have installed a few Lenovo updates like, thinkvantage GPS and thinkvantage access connectons. Also used the lenovo solution center to update and have no hardware errors shown.   On issue is that I can not turn on location toggle as it is grayed out in the Settings/System/Notifications & Actions/"turn system icons on or off" area.   The location is the only one grayed out and I do have location turned on elsewhere and Maps shows the location icon in the task bar when running.  I appreciate any help, thanks.

Hey guys I want to update my laptop RAM Lenovo ThinkPad X 201 3680PW9  to. But I will have ordered via the Internet so it would be almost impossible to be retained or invoiced if it does not work. I want to know what is the best option to upgrade the RAM 8 GB (2X4GB) or 12 GB (1X4GB+1X8GB)?What is the best RAM brand compatible with this model ? Thanks alot

A:want to upgrade thinkpad x201 ram?

Max supported by this serie is 2x 4GB RAM, a 8GB module will not work.
 
You'd need SODIMM modules DDR3-8500 (DDR3-1066) or DDR-10600 (DDR3-1333). DDR3-12800 will most probably not work (I never managed to get one working in mines)
 
Stick to well known brands like:
 

Samsung
Elpida
Kingston (but avoid the "Value RAM" series)
Hynix
Crucial
Corsair (but avoid the "Value Select" series)
A-Data

Hi,I am new on the forum. Sorry for my bad English, I am French. By now i am in India for some times. My Lenovo Thinkpad X201 (on W7) is telling me that I will soon have to change the battery. Yesterday I went to a shop a little far from my ashram. The manager (looks professionnal) took photos of my battery, sent it to another man whose arrival was expected in ten minutes. 30mn after I gave my phone number to the manager. 21 hours later no news. So I search another option.On my battery (47+) it is written - ...Replace with same type only... - (and among other informations 42T4835 / 42T4834 (Part number?)). On this forum and I discoverd there are three categories of batteries for this notebook: 4 cell, 6 cell and 9 cell.I am lost: when I search on the shop (http://shop.lenovo.com/tn/fr/itemdetails/43R9254/460/D65CF46CB0DB412FA2E56C552E0D8A38#learnMore) I find another Part number: 43R9254)I ask you two questions:1. Can I replace with a different Lenovo battery?2. If you have answered "yes" which ones?Thanks for your answers.Jacques

There are lots of part numbers.  Anything from an x200 or x201 notebook will work.  (Not a tablet)  They will be marked 47+ or 47++.  4,6 and 9-cell are ok.  I tell people to avoid aftermarket (non-Lenovo batteries)

Okay, I recently bought a used Thinkpad X201 'tablet' (y'know, the type with the cool screen that spins) It worked great, except that the hard drive would sometimes slip off it's connectors, causing a crash. However, it always booted up fine (except me losing things that I hadn't saved, of course) so I didn't give it too much mind. However, recently it did so and when I booted it up before going to the OS, and right after the screen with the big "THINKPAD" logo the screen goes black except for a small lock symbol and beside it two small rectangles, one inside the other. It looks just like this:Some sites told me to take out the PRAM battery (or whatever they call it these days. It's the little thing that keeps the time going while the main battery is disconnected). Which I did, and left it overnight. When I booted it up, it beeped at me for making it forget what time it was, but then gave me the same response. I tried hitting ESC and then ctrl-s to get to the setup menu, but that only has four choices:network boot protocolboot ordershow setup promptsetup menu wait timethe latter two are the only ones I can change. I took the hard drive (A 127 GB SSD) and plugged it into my desktop, using which I could access all the files, so drive failure isn't it.I'd like to stress that this NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. I had no idea this was even a thing until it happened.Oh, and yes, I've tried all the obvious passwords like 'password', '12345', 'abcd', etc.

There is no way to clear it other than remembering the password.  There is no "backdoor" password.  You need a motherboard.

I've had a ThinkPad X201 (3626-CTO) for about a year. No problems until last Friday. Out of the blue (ahem), I got a Blue Screen when the computer woke up, and after that it blue screened every time it restarted in normal mode. However, it worked fine in Safe Mode with Networking. Basically by process of elimination, I was able to determine that it would run fine in normal mode with WLAN Autoconfig disabled (fine except that I couldn't use wireless). After repeated restarts with BSODs, two programs started acting flaky (Thunderbird and ESET IS) and had to be reinstalled. Then when I tried to run a scan with ESET, lots of files wouldn't open, and BSOD. I was convinced it was a failing HDD (which is a SSD).

All of the diagnostics I could run on the hardware gave no errors (HDD Diagnostic in BIOS, full diagnostics in Recovery platform, memtest86+). So, I guessed it might be just some odd filesystem error, so I restored the factory image. Everything worked. I installed a bunch of stuff (Office, Acrobat, Design Premium, ESET IS, Thunderbird, Firefox, Flash, iTunes, Quicktime, Java) and let a bunch of updates install, and all seemed well. Put it to sleep and took it home.

Fine on wakeup. Then I installed Dropbox, Skype and Chrome and let more updates install. It went to sleep. When it woke up, BSOD. BSOD on restart. When I turned off the WLAN Autoconfig service, it would start. If I uninstall and reinstall the Thinkpad 11/b/g/n driver, I can turn on the service and... Read more

A:BSOD on ThinkPad X201--WLAN error?

The most recent four crashes say:

Caused by driver: igdkmd64.sys
Caused by address: igdkmd64.sys+20beae
Crash address: ntoskrnl+7cc40
All are still the same error - DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)

I removed the Intel GMA driver (8.15.10.2401 from Lenovo) and could activate wireless. Sleep and hibernate were disabled; I guess they are tied to the GMA driver? When I restarted, BSOD. Back to the previous BSOD error. So no help. It's possible that the constant crashes on start-up are taking a toll on the filesystem. Twice now I've had to nuke the Thunderbird profile to get it to behave normally. I re-installed the GMA driver.

Hello,

It looks as if the Qualcomm USB modem is causing the problem here. I believe that is for using your phone as a modem?

The quick-and-dirty solution is removing the device and the software. If that's not a workable option for you, look on the internet for updated drivers for it. My best guess would be to check for updates for the phone software.

If that doesn't work, post a new jcgriff2 report and we'll go from there.

I cracked the LCD in the screen today, and it looks like there is nothing wrong with it at all unless one looks really closely, or if one looks at the screen from certain angles. I can see the point where the pressure was placed on the screen when i look directly at it, but it isn't too bad. I have to travel tomorrow to Haiti (talk about bad timing) and I need the laptop to work for the three weeks that I will be there. If it can last that long I will be very happy.

My laptop recently got a sound problem, which has lasted for about 3 weeks.

But if I click the pausing button, and wait for a couple of minutes, the sound can be restored. But the restored sound will disappear again after a couple of minutes. When the sound is lost, if I restart the program or internet vedio, the sound will also come back. I have tried to uninstall the sound card driver, but it did not solve the problem. Does anybody know what caused this sound problem and how to fix it. Thank you very much for your help.

I WANT TO SHARE THIS BECASUE IT HAPPENED ME SEVERAL TIMES AND NEVER FOUND ANY SOLUTION ON THE NET In my X201 with Windows 7 64 pro, sometimes the wireless wan radio card doesn't power on. I mean, whatever you do (fn+F5, enable/disable in bios, reinstall driver, etc) it keeps powered off.Also its LED keeps powered off (in meantime wifi and blutooth can be worked on/off) The only solution I have found is to boot the pc with an Ubuntu USB  live disk, and click on "enable broadband connection", to make it active (you will note its led powered on)- The magic is also that Ubuntu MUST be run from a live disk, if you install on the harddisk it wont be able to re-wake the wan card... only after doing this the qualcomm wireless wan gets bak at being "actionble" also in windows 7. hope it helps!

Hi everyone, I shut down my laptop and the next boot up took very very long , like 15-20 minutes. And the audio symbol was like that on the photo (a red cross on it)  I tried to install the driver but somehow it didn't work. Then i decided to format and reinstall windows. btw, im on win7. After new installation, i have the same problem. I could install he drivers and everything seem to work but there were still no sound and when i click on sound symbol or go to any settings about sound, my laptop is lagging. Boot time is still that long. I disabled and uninstalled everything about audio and now my laptop works fine except no sound  anyone has idea what could be wrong ? Thanks in advance

Is it possible to use the ThinkPad 90W AC Adapter with a Thinkpad P51 with Xeon 1505 and the M2200 GPU? Am a coder so I will rarely use the Nvidia GPU at all but don't want the CPU, memory, SSD etc. performance to be affected by a to small charger. A related question, does the Nvidia GPU kick in automatically when using an external monitor or can that also be used with the Intel GPU? Only doing office work so no gaming, 3D modeling etc.

Hi all,(I did search for this but couldn't find an exact answer. So in case this has been asked before, just point me to that link and sorry). What is the difference between the 65W and 90W charger (if any?) Is it worth spending the extra $55?

I recently purchased a ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd (Type 20JD), and it came with a 65W adapter for USB-C (model 4X20M26268), there is also a 45W model through Lenova (4X20M26252), and numerous 45W and 65W slim travel adapters for Yoga models.  My question, can I use any Lenova 45W or 65W brand adapter with a USB-C cable?  I would prefer to use of the 45W or 65W travel adapters that have retractable plug, like the one for Yoga3...is there any risk? thanks!
