I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello,I just joined the Forum.I have a Thinkpad R400 that has recently stopped charging its battery. More details.Model 74401 Gb disk, dual boot Win7 and LinuxMint 18.Recently upgraded RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb. New RAM is recognized.The "results" are the same with or with out Dock attached."AC Power Status" LED remains dark.New battery, former battery not charging either (old battery causes "Battery Status" LED to flash orange).New battery lights up Battery Status LED, and hovering over battery icon will show percentage of charge and not charging.New AC power supply, both new and old, read 20 volts DC at the yellow barrel connector.Will not boot by AC power supply only (battery removed, error message about low battery and powers off)I tried the AC and battery removed and 10 one second pushes on Power Button followed by holding Power Button down for 30 seconds, no change.I removed (under Win7) the Microsoft ACPI and Battery drivers under Device Manager. no change.Battery (new or old) does not charge when laptop is powered off and AC power supply connected. Problem may have begun several weeks ago when I closed the laptop without shutting down and put it in my backpack.A week or so later, its battery was dead when I pulled it out to use it again. Any ideas? Thanks,Fordy2

Hi Everyone!I'm Mariano from Argentina! this is my first post! everything alright? I write this to tell my problem or detail: i recently purchased a used Lenovo R400 Thinkpad that i like very much, i love the look, characteristics, processor, is very good, i put it 4gb of ram, it goes really well, i paid it very cheap. But I have a little problem (the seller told me about it and show me the thing): the display (lcd) shows a little horizontal line that comes and goes (3 seconds in, and 3 seconds  out), is on the bottom on the screen, but the machine is working great, the rest of the screen is working absolutely amazing, no problem at all, it's only that line that comes and goes, is a little detail (sometimes you see it and sometimes you can't even realize that is there), i take the display off but is not the flex i guess, i move it, and is not a question of move it... the question is: anyone knows what exactly is? and how can i take it off?If anyone can help me i would be pleased with that...  Thanks very much guys!

Hi
i have a Portege R400-106, which no longer has a hard drive - so can't just get the number off the old one :-(
i'm trying to work out which hard drive i can put in it,
i can see that hard drive space in the laptop has IDE prongs. It is possible that this is PATA type, but my research so far suggests that when drives say they are IDE, i should be OK (please tell me if i have this wrong!)
i believe it is a 2.5" drive i'm looking for and the original drive would have been 80GB, which is about what i think i need.
I think i may be wanting an MK8025GAS ???

i found one at: http://www.memory4less.com/ConfItems.aspx?modelid=80028876
but the cost is pretty prohibative as i live in the UK and the shipping is loads.


I can't seem to find anywhere that can tell me which drive is suitable
cheers in advance for any ideas :-)

Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:R400- Does not boot with new Kingston ram.

Those modules are Kingston Value RAM modules (identifiable by the KVVxxx product number), which normally don't work well with ThinkPads, if it's possible I would return them back and get a different brand, for example:
 

Corsair (but avoid the "Value Select" line!)
Samsung
Hynix
Crucial
Elpida
ADATA
Kingston (but not the "Value RAM" line!!)

I'm trying to install XP on XPS R400, previously running 98. I'm getting error message invalid system disc but all original discs are lost. I reformatted drive thinking the XP would go right on but I'm stuck.
 

A:Dell XPS R400 Pentium II

It sounds like it's not booting to the Windows XP CD. You need to get into the BIOS setup and be sure the boot sequence is set to CDRom Drive, Floppy Drive and then hard drive in that order.

When the PC first powers on, you should see instructions to press a key to get into Setup. It's usually the DEL or F1 key. Once in the BIOS setup set the Boot Sequence and be sure to read the instructions on the screen to save the settings as you exit.

Let us know what happens.

Hello!  I have an R400 that won?t restart when the power adapter is connected.  If a restart is attempted with the adapter connected, the status lights just cycle through repeatedly (hdd, caps, numlock, batt, etc).  As soon as the adapter is disconnected, the restart will resume.  Once the restart resumes, the adapter can be reconnected and the restart will continue. The adapter will charge the battery adequately.I have another R400 that?s fine from which I?ve tried the adapter and battery.On the problem laptop, I?ve tried a known good different hard drive with a fresh install of Win 10.I suspect a hardware problem of some sort but I don?t want to shotgun it if you know what I mean.Thoughts?Thank!

not sure where to post this since this is my first time on board. I have a Dell Dimenstion XPS R400 running XP.

You shut the computer off, it starts up again, normally, but then won't take you past the page where it lists the BIOS info, etc. I have tried F8 or ESC but it won't go anywhere unless the password is entered.

I pushed the power button i see the lights of 1 and A turned on and off twice, but didnt show the boot screen.. The screen was blank doing nothing. Solution 1Disconnect the power cable and battery and push the power button 11 times and in the 11th push the button for 30 seconds. Connect power and push power button. Then you can connect the battery. Solution 2 (The one that helped me)Removed the power cable, the battery and the internal battery of CMOS and let it disconnected all for 15 hours.

Connect the CMOS's battery and normal battery and is all. WARNINGIf you reset the CMOS and the laptop have a Supervisor Password enabled and you dont have it  you will be in big problems.

I have a Dell XPS R400 with 196 Mb (32/32/128) of PC100 SDRAM running windows xp. I wanted to upgrade memory. Dell claims the machine can handle ~380 Mb of PC100 SDRAM. I checked around on-line, and it appeared that I could install PC133 SDRAM on this machine. My machine does not boot after I installed a single stick of 128 Mb PC133 SDRAM. It will boot with the original PC100 SDRAM. Any ideas?

This discussion indicates that my machine can handle more memory: http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/wind...XPS-R400-with-Intel-SE440BX2-motherboard.html How can I verify this?

I have a Dell XPS R400 with a Pentium II, 400 MHz processor running Windows 2000. (It originally had Windows 98). I currently have one socket filled with 128 MB of SDRAM (PC100, unbuffered, CL=2) . I would like to upgrade and add more memory.

Information from Dell says the computer supports 100 Mhz SDRAM 168 pin DIMM with a maximum size of 128 MB up to a total of 384 MB (3 sockets).

The motherboard is an Intel SE440BX-2. The documentation for it says it supports up to a 256 MB DIMM SDRAM for a total of 768 MB.

Why the discrepancy? Is it based on the OS? And how high can I go?
 

A:Memory Upgrade - Dell XPS R400 with Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard

The old W98 did not function properly with 256MB or over.
W2000 does not need more than 512MB, but works fine with up to 1GB.




Intel said:



System Memory Combinations
The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.Click to expand...

I would believe Intel rather than Dell.
Make sure you get PC100/CL2 SDRam, anything else does not work.
You can mix different MB-sizes memory-chips. So buy what you can afford.
Unless you do intensive graphics, even just 1 256MB-stick will do wonders.

Hi AllI recently acquired an A22m in very nice shape for next to nothing, and am currently doing a fresh install of Windows 2000. I went onto Lenovo's support page and after selecting Laptop on the first category, the sub-category for which Thinkpad series it is part of doesn't have a selection for "Thinkpad A Series", but seems to have every other series listed. I went on the support chat and was told to call technical support and once I did that, was told by technical support to search their forum. Nothing showed up, and I thought I should post here instead. Will the page for the A series be put back up? I really want to get this laptop back up and running.  Thanks,Luke

Welcome to the forum!
 
Congrats for your purchase, that's a nice fine machine you got there  
 
Unfortunately I don't think you may find the drivers in the official Lenovo site soon, the site is being re-structured and probably many other older Thinkpads won't be there anymore.
 
In your case I would suggest to check this page for more details about your A22m: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:A22m, then try to identify the correct components and google them to find the corresponding drivers.

Hi to all.I am new here and need some help/info. I have had a T440s, (20AQ0069GE, i7-4600U, 8GB, Samsung 840 EVO 500GB) since 2013 without any major problems.It survived all upgrades from Win7->Win8.1->Win10 all versions up to 1809 without damage.BIOS 2.52 slowed it down somewhat, but still OK.But Windows 10 1903 made is so lame so as to be virtually useless.None of the several other desktops and laptops which I have upgraded to 1903 were slowed down noticably. So I decided to set my T440s up from scratch, which I reckon will take about 10 days.As a test, I cloned my desktop (still on Win 10 1809) onto a SSD and it ran fine on my T440s. Not very fast, but ok, probably due to the 2.52 BIOS.But of course none of the Function Keys, specific to the T440s worked, since my desktop is totally different hardware. Before I actually start installing Win 10 AND all the application SW, I would like to be sure that in the end all the T440s funtions will work..There is a lot of bloatware which came with the original machine, which I never used and can do without.I am sure many of you have been in the same situation. So my question is:Which Lenovo drivers do I need to make all the T440s peripherals (Function Keys, card reader (?), what else ?) work under Windows 10?Where do I get them? Thanks for your help.Ruebe2 PS.

Not sure what you mean by you searched for drivers at Lenovo?  Or are you saying you found the drivers but they dont work?  Either way below is the link to T470s.   Click "Drivers and Software" on top.  You can Choose Windows 7 32 bit or windows 7 64 bit.  Also that link will have "system update" as well.  It should pull down all software for your laptop automatically.  Also you metnion T470s but wasnt sure if you had the 20JS, 20JT, 20HF or 20hg models.

New P50 user here.   Computer is very nice,  I have many HP Zbooks at my company, they have been mostly trouble free but I wanted to give lenovo a try.  This machine has alot of good features except for this docking station!  I am running Win7 Pro,  I have sucessfully installed a Samsung 960 Evo M.2 Drive and cloned the 500 GB WDC drive that came with the computer.  Everythig on the computer itself operates well,  I have all the normal windows updates, and all of the critical and important lenovo updates per the solution center. Lenovo Service Bridge will not install for some reason.  So that has been the one other difficulty I am having. Docking Problem:  I have been unable to get the USB ports work on the dock to work due to a driver/software issue I cannot find the right drivers to use  on the lenovo website When I lay the P50 in the Dock or boot it up on the dock it will say Lenovo ThinkPas WS Dock Driver not found/not installed correctlyLenovo ThinkPas WS Dock Driver not found/not installed correctly   Says it twice once for 2.0 USB and once for 3.0 I am assuming.   It seemed to install correctly on the first dock but no USB were working so i went to Device manager and uninstalled now they won't come back.

I have a new ThinkPad P51.  I have been trying to download the Lenovo (hardware) drivers from:   https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-... It is a 1360.28 MB download for my selected drivers; which it says will download as a single zip file. 1. It doesn't download as a single zip file and instead creates multiple folders in the download destination.2. It doesn't complete the 1.3 GB download and gives an error in between.  The maximum I have been able to get to is about 900 MB.  I have tried over 10 times.3. A screenshot of the error is attached. Has anyone else faced the same problem?  How does one get around it? Thanks in anticipation.

Hello, I've recently bought a Thinkpad T520 which was refurbished. It looks like it's had a clean install of Windows 7 Professional(64 bit) and all of the preloaded Thinkpad drivers like ThinkVantage and Figerprint reader have been erased. I want to get it as close to factory condition as possible regarding drivers. The laptop is from 2011. I'm not sure if the ThinkVantage driver contains all the drivers I've read about or if I have to download each one and if there's a preferred order when installing these drivers. Any advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on getting the T520.
 
The best and easiest way to get your T520 up-to-date is to go to its product support page, T520 Laptop. Download and install ThinkVantage Technology -> Lenovo System Update. Then when you run System Update it will find all the latest drivers, utilities, etc. that your T520 needs and install them for you.

Hello everybody, I would like to ask you about drivers download for ThinkPad SL300. On official lenovo pages is not already this model for drivers download. Does some way exist to download drivers from official lenovo pages? For example, FTP with old drivers or something like that (I found FTP in this topic - https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/General-Discussion/Access-directories-on-ftp-site-ftp-software-ibm-com/... but there is nothing like drivers folder). Please do not write about (I know this possibilities):- others pages for drivers downloads - I want to download ONLY from official lenovo page- creating recovery media - because I want to install newer OS not Vista Thank you very much for usable answers.
