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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:lenovo L440

Hi Ms,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understand that your display is not working in your L440 laptop.
 
Issue might be with the LCD cable. Since the external display is working fine there is no issue with the motherboard.
 
Note: As per the Lenovo policy, the warranty will be void if the laptop is dismantled by yourself.
 
We would like you to visit the nearest authorised Lenovo service centre to purchase the power supply.
 
Service Center link - https://support.lenovo.com/in/en/contactus/findaprovider
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best Regards,
 
Poojitha.

Hi,I have replaced CD-ROM by HDD Caddy with SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 250GB) in my Lenovo ThinkPad L440 (20ASS3GT0) as a second storage device (not one with the OS). When I'm trying to start the system, I'm getting a message "Configuration changes - restart the system." and the system reboots again and again. What is more, I can't access the BIOS any more - pressing F1 does not work. Updating to the newest version of BIOS (1.85) does not help. After removing HDD Caddy everything works fine. I have tried some of the configurations below: Removed the battery, pressed the power button for 10-15 sec. and rebooted with AC Adapter connected - still got message "Configuration changes - restart the system."Removed HDD from standard SATA port and connected it using HDD Caddy - cannot boot into the system. There is no message "Configuration changes...", HDD is detected but it is not on the list with bootable devices (there is only one option to boot over the LAN).HDD Caddy connected with no storage device - boot into the system with no problem.The problem is, that I need two storage devices - one for the OS and second one (using HDD caddy) for another data. Could anyone help me to solve that issue?

Hello and welcome,

One short beep, pause, three short beeps, pause, threemore short beeps, pause, and one short beep
 
Shut down the computer immediately. Ensure thatmemory modules are installed correctly. If they are, andyou still hear the beeps, have the computer serviced.

Hi, I started having weird after-wake up BSODs (bugcheck: 0x00000133) last week. I don't recall installing or udpating any software (other than Windows update) nor changing hardware configuration.
The BSODs are not regular and don't happen after every wake up, just circa every second third. It seems that they're slightly more likely to happen more times in a row but other than that there doesn't seem to be any way to predict them. Once a BSOD happened during normal use and not immediately after wake up (was about 2 mins after wake up).
The exact way they occur is following: Laptop gets waken up, is normally responsive for about 1-4 seconds, freezes, and after variying amount of time (sometimes seconds, sometimes minutes) fall into BSOD.
Event viewer (system logs) doesn't show anything with the exception of some printer-related problems that have - however -timespamp indicating that they-re after-crash problems. There're no System logs with timestamp in between wake up and crash and the after-reboot ones doesn't provide any useful information.
The laptop runs Windows 8.1 x64 with Ubuntu in dualboot which seems to be unaffected (can't say for sure, don't use it as much).
Crash dump, minidump, and log files: http://1drv.ms/1Cn7RMd

Hi, There seems to be some problem detected for my original 16GB M.2 SSD, so I want to replace it with a new one. I bought the following one, which should be compatible https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KBZH72I/ref=twister_B00KBZH7E6?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 My question is, after I get it, should I just remove the original one and install the new one? Is there any other thing I should to complete the replacement? The OS is on my HDD, but I don't plan to move it to the new SSD. In this case, do I just need to remove the old one and install the new one? The reason why I ask is that the manual says: "Ensure that you partition the M.2 solid-state drive after installing it on the computer you are servicing. Otherwise, the M.2 solid-state drive will not function correctly." Thanks a lot!

Hello finally I got my L440 and made RAM upgrade to 16GB and I also want it to have an SSD. After reading all the manuals and forum messages I think that it have  a sutiable port for an mSATA SDD which will solve my problem in a great way without replacing anything.
 
My question is, my machine didn't come with an mSATA or WWAN option. While making the RAM upgrade I checked the ports and there is only one seems to be suitable for mSATA but since area is too small I couldn't be sure if it is the one. Can you please check the attachment and tell me if any mSATA will fit in that port? Or maybe it is not for mSATA and I should go with the traditional SSD solutions by replacing the disc?
 
Thanks

A:msata SSD for L440?

Hi,
 
According to the Hardware Maintenance Manual, page 70 that slot is for a WWAN card or M.2 SSD.  An mSATA SSD will not fit.
 
From what I read here in the boards, finding a high capacity SSD in the right physical size is  a problem.  There are multiple sizes - IIRC the 42mm version is used in Lenovo laptops.

Short answer is yes. My L440 has a Transcend TS256GMTS400 I installed in the M.2 slot, and the software that is downloadable for it allows you to copy the O/S drive to the SSD and boot from it. My L440 goes from power on to logon in literally a few seconds and I still have the 512GB HDD available for things that don't need the blinding speed of the SSD.

A:thinkpad l440 cpu upgrade?

If you do it yourself it will certainly be cheaper, but the CPU is not considered customer-replaceable, so it may affect your warranty status. If you can do the replacement in a professional manner, so it doesn't look worked on, probably nobody will complain, as long as you keep the old part and replace it back before getting service. The FRU of the i7-4600m is 04X4049. You do not want to get one marked "ES" (engineering sample). The ES parts may not be final versions

Usually, these symptoms indicate a blown fuse on the motherboard.  The issue comes up frequently when LED-backlight screens are broken.  Lenovo does not do this type of repair (other than motherboard replacement).It can be done, but most places do not have the specialized equipment to diagnose and repair.

03X6657 is the Lenovo part number.  That corresponds to several manufacturers' part numbers off various brands.
 
If you are buying non-Lenovo-branded RAM, you need DDR3L (1.35v) 1600 mHz SODIMM.  It might be described as PC3-12800.  Avoid RAM labeled Value Ram.  I always suggest checking return policy on RAM before buying.  Everybody has their favorite brands.  If I am buying RAM for myself, I like Corsair Vengeance.  I have never had a failure or a compatibility problem.

My laptop really works fine - there's just one point annoying me: For a few days now, I don't have any on screen display anymore for all FN keys: no volume, brightness display - no problem. No Caps display - ehm. No selection for display changing or wifi/bluetooth - I don't have an idea to do it otherwise. No bluetooth entry in the system panel neither. WLAN works fine, but Bluetooth is off. I want my black on screen alerts back! I tried with updating the power management - nothing changed. I tried to reinstall the power management driver - nothing. What can I do?

A:L440: No On Screen Display for FN keys

One hint says you could activate the on screen display in the display settings. What, please, is the Display Settings dialogue called like in German Win7? I can't find it.

Is it possible to upgrade the graphics card on the L440?













Solved!

A:L440 graphics card upgrade

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
As with most every laptop, the graphics subsystem is either integrated with the CPU package, or if it's an actual discrete GPU, soldered to the system board. In some cases a particular machine may have been offered with either integrated or discrete graphics. In that instance, a machine with integrated graphics might be upgraded via a system board swap.
 
Looking at pg2 of the L440 FRU Parts List: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/l440_fru_list_20140825.pdf
you'll see main two types of system boards. One is "Integrated Graphics 4600" and the other is "nVdia N14M-GE with 1GB", so you do have that option, but it could be costly.
 
You can refer to the hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/l440_l540_hmm_en_sp40a26004_03.pdf
to get an idea of the physical task.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.
Regards.

Hello everyone,I am currently experiencing a big problem to deploy the Windows 7 Enterprise Images on our L440 using MDT2013/ WDS with my Server 2012 installed on my Lenovo D30 workstation.The problem is that MDT can not figure out what disc to install the windows system since the L440 have a SSD of 16GB and a HDD of 500GB.I did several tests with my task sequences by specifying the hard disk on which to install by Disk 0 or Disk 1 but I still have the same error Failure (5456): Unable to determine the Destination Disk, Partition, and / or Drive ...Yesterday I had to open an L440 machine and physically remove the SSD, then do a new test so that it works perfectly.I note that in our company we use only computers Lenovo (x131e, L420, L430, L440, T450s, x230, M93p and other models ...)Is there another way to deploy the images using MDT2013 (the one I use) on the L440 without having to physically remove the SSD, even if it is necessary to disable it in the BIOS before deploying? Or someone knows the solution so that MDT can determine on which disk to install the OS.Thank you very much, waiting for your answers
