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.)

The first time I replaced the SSD I was able to disable the internal battery in the BIOS config settings as per manual instructions. However now my laptop just boots to a blank black screen, and I cannot get to config settings. How do I disable the internal battery? Can I just go ahead and try to replace the SSD without doing so? Should I let it sit there on the black screen and drain power? (but the fan is really loud while it does that)

Hello,I have a T580 P52s 20LB with a 500GB HDD, a ThinkPad T580 P52s M.2 SSD tray and a 500GB M.2 Samsung EVO 970 Pro.  I also have an M.2 to USB-C adapter.  Samsung Magician will not detect the SSD using the adapter so I used a work-around to clone my HDD (all partitions) to my SSD.  Afterward, I installed the SSD using the M.2 SSD tray but I got the boot device not found error.  My tech tried and got the same results. A third tech tried and got the same results.  Even when I had the third tech wipe the M.2, install it and try to do a fresh Window 10 install, it did not work.  I know the drive is fine because it works in other machinces.  I got my SSD tray directly from Lenovo and confirmed before purchasing and after receiving it that it is the correct part. I know the machine is capable of supporting SATA or M.2 NVMe for drive 1 but I can't seem to get this to work.  I picked up a SATA EVO 860 in case help from this forum isn't able to solve the problem.

Hey,I really need some help with the following issue: Details:HW: Y520 with 16GB RAM, GTX 1060, SSD (GPT) + HDD (MBR)SW: Win10 pro - including latest updates. On GPT based SSD and in UEFI mode.BIOS: latest one is loaded Problem:In short; The FIRST boot each day is unsuccessful, but the SECOND right after the failed attempt is always successful. More details:This also happens, if I switch the notebook on after not using it for a few hours, like 3h<So during the first attempt the notebook is just freezing and and I have to press and hold power button. The last thing I can see is the lenovo logo and the stopped spinning circle animation. Notebook doesnt react to ctrl+alt+del.The strange thing is that right after these 1st attempts the 2nd boot attempts are always successful, windows10 loads in and no problem after that. What I already checked:-Windows event viewer: There are no records from the failed boot, I guess because windows is not even loaded.-Drivers: All drivers are installed-BIOS: I didnt see any related setting. The OS was installed in UEFI mode and bios is set this way (UEFI)-I run all the quick and deep hw diagnostics test on lenovo support page - No issues.-Win10 reinstall: Even after a clean install the freezes are still happening. Installed win10 twice but no change, still freezing.What causes the freezes!?If needed I can make a video as well.Thanks in advance!

The very first boot of my Yoga 920 13 glass gave me an application exception during initial configuration.  See below.  I guess I don't need to highlight the irony of the background.  Anyone know what causes this?  Just poor testing? When I tried to boot my laptop up the next day, it acted even more strange.   When I logged into the main Windows screen (either via PIN or scan fingerprint), I got a black screen with a cursor...nothing else.  I waited up to 20 minutes, then tried multiple times to power on and off and the same cycle kept happening.  The login went nowhere.  I finally held down the power button until the machine fully turned off and then it worked fine when I restarted. Anyone else having these odd things happen?   It's a really poor first time experience.

I love my P52, even if it throttles the CPU a little too easy. 
 
What I don't love is that is won't receive any charge with a 90W adapter or USB-C unless it's hibernated or turned off (and not always then either). 
Previous models would give a message that it's not sufficient and use some battery to compensate, but now I have to drag a huge 170W adapter to meeting rooms at work, which are prewired with 90W which should give me more than enough hours on 90W plus battery to last all day. 
 
Is there a good reason to not support these ways to charge?

Hello sveintore! Welcome to Community Forums.
 
What is the wattage of the AC adapter that came with your machine? Based on the product specifications, the machine's AC adapter is 170W slim tip AC adapter and USB-C doesn't support power delivery.

Got my new P52s about 20 days ago. I was very excited at that time. Now,  I am very disappointed about my unit ( 32G RAM/ 1T SSD/ 4K screen & all features ): it is very noisy.  I have updated all softwares and firmware.  My T470s ( one year old ) is very quiet.  I thought T580 should be good too ( P52s is same as T580 ).  Since it is noisy, I haven't really use it yet.  Is it normal for this model ? Or, my unit is not good. Please give me suggestion. I believe that I have one week to make my decision: keep it, replace  it or chage to another model ( which 15 inch one is good ?).

Our H50-55 desktop is just over 2 years old. Windows 10 64 bit. After the last Windows update it started having issues of booting up slowly, sometimes hanging and needed to be restarted, sometimes more than once. This morning the "Lenovo" appeared on screen with the front panel HDD light showing for a few moments, then the HDD light goes out and the "Lenovo" stays on screen. Period. Have tried to restart repeatedly, also held down power button for 15 seconds. I'm guessing the hard drive died? Our recovery disk seems to have been lost.I used a different computer to download "Windows 10 Recovery Tool 64-Bit 17.01.16" from Major Geeks.com, onto a flash drive. I'm afraid to use it though.

Currently I am running an ABIT NF7-S motherboard along with an AMD Athlon XP 3200 proccesor.
The system detects the processor as an 1100 and says there is an issue with the bios set up and it may not work but you can press F1 to try anyway. If you do it boots up fine and for the most part runs fine, but randomly you will loose picture on the monitor and the sound card loops the last 2-3 seconds of sound till you power off the box and power back on. If you do so, the time between shutdowns does not get shorter and it can be anywhere between a few hours and a few minutes.

If I go into BIOS and tell the computer to detect the processor properly and restart it makes me power off manually and back on, at which point it detects normally and goes through boot without requiring the press of F1, however after checking the RAID controllers but before passing to the OS, the system hangs. I have a cursor blinking as though its thinking, and that's it. I've not let it run to see if it is just a very slow boot, I'm going to try that tonight, but I wanted to know if anyone knew the nature of the problem and/or how to fix it.

I have since Run MWMbs and McVee on Scan? nothing? so I decided to create a ?Boot-able USB flash drive? but the problem is how and where do I download the Windows 8 ISO and do I download Windows 8.1 or just 8?

A:Where and What is an ICO of Win 8 Win Freeze on Re - Boot

I think you mean an ISO (instead of ICO). You can download the Win 8.1 ISO by following this procedure:

http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ad-create.html

Follow the tip at the end of the tutorial for instructions on how to get that ISO onto a USB drive or DVD.

Once done, you will need to do a clean install using a special key for the 8.1 installation. This key works for Windows 8.1 Pro (see post #16):

Now, after you have successfully done a clean install, you must now use your Windows 8 Pro key to activate the installation as a legitimate upgrade to 8.1 Pro:

Hello I need some help with my xp home computer.

A week ago I turned on my computer and had it freeze then go to a blue screen involving something about dumping hard drive to a phicsical disk or something and after it restarted it began to give me a blank screen instead of the xp loading screen.. so I restarted it and it gave me the sorry for the inconvenience with the start up options.. I have tryed all of these even all the options in F8 and all freeze except last known good config.. that gives me a blank screen, I dont have a xp disk unfortunately, the strange thing is it worked last night but is back on the blink tonight and i noticed a strange thing above the memory test that reads CPUID 0f27 Patch 0037.. dont know if that means anything, I have not installed any new hardware in the past 6 months.. any one got any ideas?

I just had a quick thought is it possible to use another xp home computers files to fix any possible problems in my one?

Is it possible to get one without paying for it? last time I checked it cost about 100-300 here... oh and cpu temp is bout 51 celsius commonly
 

A:Xp boot up freeze

you'll need XP CD, and will have to check RAM memory, CPU Temperature. If computer is unstable it might corrupt your system even more while trying to fix it.

First check temperature in the system Bios by hitting DEL key when booting, CPU temp should be between 35 and 55 celsius (though problems may arise over 65 or so, depending on CPU)

check system memory: http://www.memtest86.com/

If memory and temperature are ok, do a repair reinstall with XP installation CD.

Keep in mind this are general guidelines, hope they help.

Good luck

When the boot screen is loading it just freeze and I am pretty sure the RAM, hard drive, and cpu are all okay. It is just after i reformat that this error occur. Sorry if this isn't the correct place to post this.
 

A:freeze on boot.

1st things to do would be to rule out RAM / HardDrive.

Download and run from Floppy or CD: MemTest {to check the RAM} and the HDD Diagnostic from the Drives manufacturer.

If they pass, try another install.

I've also found if it hangs during Install and the 'Board runs Dual Channel RAM, removing 1 stick will often allow Windows to Install, then put it back in once it's finished.

Hope this helps.

I had recently sold a computer to a friend. He attempted with no technical experience to fit in a new graphics card. Im am unaware exactly where he went wrong but he told me the computer kept freezing. I told him to remove the graphics card. The only way I could say he went wrong is not uninstalling the onboard drivers before fitting in this new graphics card. I have took the system back. It freezes at the startup loading screen and safe mode. I have booted from disk to re-install windows. Now the more concerning issue is the freezing when formatting and installing. So now I cannot go any further. RAM is not the issue as ive tryed switching around; using different sticks of the same type. I am now thinking of it being the hard drive. The hard drive is recognised in the BIOS and the data containing on the hard drive is recognised on the partitioning screen?

I have tryed the boot disk in different drives and also different disks of the same version. It is SP3 by the way

Please help! I am badly confused

Hmmm... so am I. If you have another system you don't mind messing with, switch out everything one by one including the motherboard. Therein lies your problem. Could be a bad disc, bad optical drive, the possibilities with an o/s install crashing are practically limitless! Thats why they charge so much lol.

A:Freeze On Boot Up

Has it been freezing since day one, or has it suddenly started to freeze?

Does it always freeze, or does it freeze sometimes and work fine at other times?

What action actually causes the freeze? ie Opening explorer, Browser, particular application etc

It might be worthwhile running a couple of passes memtest to eliminate one possible h'ware issue:

http://www.memtest.org/download/2.11...+-2.11.iso.zip

If it shows errors, then the RAM is probably faulty. If it shows no errors, then you start looking elsewhere

Have just bought a ThinkPad P52s Have setup a multiboot with Windows 10 (64-bit), Windows 7 (64-bit)  and  Windows 7 (32-bit) and have 3 issues: (2 of 3 ): Usable Memory on Windows 7 (32-bit) is  1.4 GBytes The  Laptop has 16 GBytes Ram and the usable Memory on Windows 10 and Windows 7 (64-bit) is about 15 Gbytes. However on the Windows 7 (32-bit) this is 1.5 Gbytes. (I know that 32-bit system can only address upto 4 Gbytes)The system has reserved about 14 GBytes.  What can I do to increase the usable memory by a GByte or so. Thanks

Hey guys,does someone knows if there is compatibility list for memory from lenovo for the p52s? I couldnt find any infos on the website.Thank you 

A:memory compatiblity p52s

The safest is to buy Lenovo-branded or memory with Lenovo FRU.  After that, just avoid sticks with the word "value" in the name.

So for the last few days, the CPU has been stuck on 1.99 GHz no matter what. It usually boosts up to 3.8 GHz when I am doing nothing. Now, no matter the workload, it is on 1.99 GHz. What can I do to fix it? It is noticeably slower during tasks it used to breeze through.I have already checked that windows is set to maximum performance, and Lenovo vantage is also set to performance. It is essentially giving me the performance I would get on the battery while I'm plugged into AC. 













Solved!

Hi eurostar1!
 
Welcome to the community forums.
 
Just to verify, when you connect the expresscards, is the drivers showing up in device manager? If yes, does it show working correctly? 
 
For basic troubleshooting for the error you are getting. Check this linl: https://windowsreport.com/device-cant-find-enough-free-resources-error-code-12/?CID=ww:lenovosocial:...
