I bought a new 6Gen X1 Carbon a few months ago and overall love it. But I'm having trouble getting it to work properly with a dock. So far I've tried two - a Plugable UD-CAM that I use on my desk and an Omars type C hub to use when travelling:https://plugable.com/products/ud-cam/https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074QNYQS9/ Both work fine for connecting a monitor over HDMI and charging the laptop, but none of the other ports work. USB keyboard/mouse dongle, LAN, USB speakers, nothing else seems to come through the dock. Plugging that stuff directly into the USB ports of the laptop works fine. Went through multiple rounds of customer support with Plugable, and they even sent me a replacement dock (had the same problems). Tried both of the USB-C ports on the laptop.  Give that both have similar problems, I suspect it has something to do with a setting or software on the laptop but I can't seem to figure it out. Any ideas?  I do have the Thunderbolt port disabled in the BIOS for security reasons, could that be causing the problem? Running Win 10 version 1803 and Vantage says all drivers are up to date.

Hello,I have Lenovo X1 Carbon 6gen with i7-8550U docked in the Lenovo Ultra Dock and I just bought three Lenovo P27h lcds. Those LCDs are connected via two displayport connectors. In one displayport connector is one lcd, in second is two lcds in daisy chain configuration. All lcds works but the problem is that on the one is highest availaible resulotion just 1920x1200 or 1920x1080. It is not the problem of lcd or the daisy chain because when I disconnet one lcd I get the proper resolution on it also (2560x1440). According to intel specs it should not be problem of graphics card which should be powerfull enought to handle it. Have anyone have similar issue? Do anyone have an idea how to solve it? Thank you.

I'm in need of advice. I have an X1 Carbon 2nd gen with a motherboard that just died last week quite suddenly. I use the laptop for my personal machine and small business and it's been great for me up until this. It's no longer booting and I got a quote from Lenovo service to have the motherboard replaced for ?720 (about $800). It mentions "planar replacement 00UP983". It was purchased in 2015 and is the 20A8 model (i7-4600U(3.3GHz),8GB RAM,256GB Solid State Drive,14in 2560x1440 Touchscreen LCD,Intel HD Graphics,Intel 802.11agn wireless,WWAN,Camera,8c Li-Ion,Win8.1 Pro 64)  In the meantime I just purchased an ASUS ZenBook UX480FD, which is going back to the store to be returned. Hate it. Despite it being quite loaded with nice modern specs, it runs extremely hot, it's heavy, it's thick and bulky feeling and the last straw was that I"m getting blue screen errors and sudden reboots to BIOS even after fresh Windows 10 installs. Reminds me of my old desktop from the late 1990s. It's made me realize I want an X1 Carbon again whether it's having my current one serviced or picking up the new 7th gen or last year's 6th gen. My question is would it be worth having the motherboard replaced by official Lenovo service for the price quote I received? I would plan on still using my X1 Carbon 2nd gen as my go-to machine for at least another 2 years and I assume it would still work for much longer than that. Thanks for any advice.

The adaptive keyboard on my 2014 X1 Carbon appears to be failing. It regularly registers phantom button presses near the right end that trigger (e.g.) the settings or keyboard backlight depending on which strip is active. When it launches the settings window, it happens frequently enough to interfere with use. I found many suggestions to update the bios, e.g.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-20A7-adaptive-keyboard-phantom-butt...I have installed all updates from Lenovo's System Update (the machine is running Windows 10), so the bios should be up to date. Are there any other software fixes I should try? If it is a hardware issue, is itsomething I can do myself? Based on my current usage I could survive with the strip entirely disabled, but I don't see a consumer-facing way to do that. Thanks.

Lenovo Gen 4(20FC) Carbon loses audio after Lenovo System Update We have several of the Gen 4 X1 Carbons here at work and they work fine until Lenovo system updates gets run. We have had 4 people run the system updates and now the system has no audio. If you click the audio icon in the try, windows begins diagnosing the system. If you try to install a different driver, it fails with code 1. No matter if you uninstall, reinstall, different versions of the driver....nothing seems to restore the audio. I finally did a system restore to before lenovo system update was run and the audio returned to working. It seems to be a software problem but I would really like to know if there is some way to get it working without having to restore every time someone runs lenovo system update.

How are the pendrives prepared? What's on the drives?  Are they UEFI or legacy bootable - or both?  Is the X1 boot mode set to UEFI-only, legacy-only, or both? 
 
What actually happens when you try to boot them?  Do they show up in the boot menu?  Do they start to boot?  Is there an error message?

Hello,    I am looking to replace my aging Lenovo T420S and Lenovo x1 Carbon 1st generation. They have both served me well and I am happy with both.  I like the touch of Carbon but don?t use it that often. The machine will be perosnla machine but will be used for personal and business/work use. I saw the T460S and x1 Yoga yesterday at our IT department. I like the built quality of Lenovo T460S including keyboard but found X1 Yoga to be fragile. I couldn?t get my hands on X1 Carbon 4th generation and found out that it doesn?t have touch anymore. The weight difference is minimal between the three machines and I personally like the weight, feel and ruggedness of Lenovo T460S. Bottom line is does anyone have experience with these three machines? I can afford to replace only one machine now and it will be fully loaded (i7, 16GB and 1Tb PCIe-NVME drive). Is x1 Yoga rugged and reliable? The difference between X1 Carbon 4th Gen and T460S seems minimal. Thank You!Subhash

A:Lenovo Z500: Replace HDD with SSD

hi Noble,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
The Lenovo Z500's HDD can be upgraded to an SSD drive but it's a bit tricky to replace (see page 41 on the hardware maintenance manual on how to replace the HDD).
 
Getting an SSD drive will greatly speed overall performance like the 2.5 SATA III SSD Vertex 4, and especially if you make it as a primary drive and install the Operating System and frequently accessed softwares / files there. You can still use the 2.5 SATA HDD by using an external 2.5 SATA enclosure or sacrifice your ODD by putting the HDD there by getting a 9.55mm HDD Caddy (you can get a 9.5mm ODD Enclosure to still use your ODD).
 
 
Hope this helps.

Hello everybody, is there anybody that has upgraded his 3rd Gen X1 Carbon to a 1TB ssd? I'm running out of place and would like to have a bigger ssd and do not know which one I could use. I tried reading in the forums, but was not able to find out which SSD would work. Somehow NVMe is not supported, it has to be a PCIe SSD (I think), but I'm not too familiar with these things. I looked at the new Samsung SM961 1TB that is just coming out, would that be able to work?The specs are here: https://gzhls.at/blob/ldb/c/4/4/9/618ff48c1c0dc799c9442fd598fa06935527.pdf Any help would be deeply appreciated.Regards,Jochen
