I need a replacement for my H key and hinges for my T460s.  The only site that has keys for the T460s is www.quikfixlaptopkeys.com and they seem to be perpetually out of stock of the H key, both back lit and non back lit.  Lenovo in their wisdom refuses to sell individual keys and only sells the whole keyboard.  I'd be willing to pay good money if someone has trashed their computer for their fully functionl H key hinges, or if someone knows for sure of a place that sells T460s keys.  Every other site that I've searched so far only goes as high as 430 or so.  Help!!!!

Hello all,I recently bought a Thinkpad T460s with no LCD Unit off of eBay. I've been looking around and there are no complete LCD Unit assemblies under the compatible parts page. Is there another model (t450s, t470s) that I can buy an LCD Unit for, and put it on this laptop myself?Thank you in advance

I broke my T460s' QHD non-touch screen (grabbed the laptop by the bezel and cracked the screen, this was never a problem on my older Thinkpads :/), and shopping for a replacement is actually a little tricky. On the back of the screen, I see:VVX14T058J0216023TP/N SD10G56715FRU 00NY406 I went to the pcsupport.lenovo.com website to look for the replacement part numbers, and it says 00NY406 and 00HN877 in the list. However there's a little dropdown on 00NY406 that says "Substitutes (2)", and shows 00HN878 and 00NY413 as well. This is the tricky part: I see in the pictures for the 00HN878, and the stickers actually say 00HM878, and VVX14T058J0016042T. Are all 40 pin connector screens with the same mounting holes compatible? When searching ebay or Amazon or aliexpress the sellers seem to suggest any of the 40 pin connector screens are cross compatible. I'm a little hesitant to buy a screen that I'm not 100% sure will fit. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi all, Quick question on battery replacements.. I have a T460s whose second battery recently showed it was having issues (on 46% of max charge available). I thought replacing the battery would be trivial but this is proving an exercise in futility. For reference the laptop type is: 20F9The battery in question is FRU: 01AV406 When I check this battery against the replacements site (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup), it indicates that the battery is out of stock. It also indicates that there are a few replacement options, 01AV407, 01AV408, 01AV405. All of which are also not in stock. After chatting with support on this issue, I was advised to call the parts department a partner - Encompass. Unfortunately, their department closes at 3pm PST which is pretty annoying. However when I search for the part (01AV406) on their website (https://lenovo.encompass.com), I'm left with an additional alternative 01AV462 (also out of stock but at least in stock 1/29). My question is, which of these sites to believe or are these all compatible? I find this a little absurd that this information is so unclear and annoying that Lenovo can't keep anything in stock.Double all that since I want to replace my primary battery as well (which will be back in stock on 3/10/19). Insert eye roll here. Any advice anyone can shed here would be apprciated or any other tips for getting these batteries replaced.

Hi there. I need the part no. of a T460s backlit keyboard for use in Chile. Anyone know where I can find it?

A:Replacement backlit keyboard part number T460s

Welcome to the forum!
 
You can find the part list in this document: click me!
 
Keyboard list starts on page 5, although the backlit models start on page 6. I'm not so sure which one will be the Chilean one, I guess "ES" is for Spanish layouts, like this example: "TH-KBD,ES,CHY,BL"
 
I hope this helps!

I broke the "I" keycap on my laptop when it started popping out. I, being stupid, tried to jam it back in but broke the tabs on the keycap itself. (Side note: I tried to gorilla glue the keycap to the hinge, but it didn't do anything) I found a keycap on laptopkey.com, but it's $22. Are there any other sites that I'm probably glossing over that sell it for cheaper?

Hi, i have a problem on my T450s's LEFT CTRL keycap. A couple days ago it was broken. I don't want to buy brand new all keyboard. I seek for only a one keycap. I already contacted some single key seller. Such as quikfixlaptopkeys.com, laptopkey.com, laptopkey.eu, laptop-keys.com. Unfortunately, they don't have this LEFT CTRL keycap in their warehouses.  My second thought was buy a LEFT SHIFT keycap because the label is not important for me, just try to that key is works. However all these sellers are using US keyboard and my keyboard layout is Turkish-Q, so keycap sizes are not same on the US keyboard. I will attach a photo, you can check. Please anybody can give me an idea to solve this situation. Without buying a new keyboard. Even 3d model for this LEFT CTRL keycap, i can produce via 3d printer.

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)

Hello, I have several T460s that customers are complaining about a pop up in the system tray stating "This device can perform faster.  This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port...." This is popping up with no USB devices plugged in.  The cuase seems to  be related to USB Coposite Device, I can force the pop up to come up by removing it from the Device Manger and then scanning for new hardware devices.This particular USB Composite Device is what the touch screen system uses (when I remove it, the touchscreen no longer functions until I allow Windows to re-install it)Th Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host controllers have driver dates of 06/05/2015, but the driver date on the USB Composite device is 6/21/2006.  Any updating I try to do just tells me I'm already using the proper driver.  (either searching the internent or pointing to the folder I download from lenovo's website) Any thoughts? Thanks

I got an t460s last augest, and I have to say, for the price I paid, I am really disapointed. I had better luck with my 500 dollar HP laptop, and my old t420. Firstly, my T460s had an unfortunate fall the other day. It fell from 2 and a half feet, and it was in semi-padded bag. The hinge ended up breaking. This was not covered under warretny, and as a student, its hard to have to pay for such stupid fixes. I bought this thing because it was (supposidly) tough. I could have gotten an Macbook pro, but I loved my old thinkpad too much. The hinge ended up snapping (litterally, the plastic piece snapped off of the screen. The rest of the laptop was completly fine! No dens, blemishes, nothing, just an crappily put together hinge. Secondly, the screen (lg one), started turning yellowish (not from smoke, or other chemicals, I've saw this happen on one of my schools old thinpads used by one of the administrators). This was however covered under warrenty, and they are going to fix it. I love this laptop, but with silliy probeblms like this (for 1500!!!!!!!), I can't recomend it. I was hoping this laptop was going to last my from now, thru at least the first year of university. If lenovo can replace this hinge, mabye I'll change my mind. Attached is an picture of the hinge.

Received my T460s yesterday. I have two major issues with the computer: 1) The Wifi is incredcibly slow. I also have a T440s. In the same spot, the T440s get 4-6x the Wifi speed of the 460s. This is consistent in 2 different locations over multiple measurments.2) I have gone through 3 complete battery charges now. The longest I even got was 3 hours. Just installing software and typing, no gaming or intense graphics. The T440s with the same settings and the small battery in the rear gets about 6 hours with similar use. Any ideas on how to improve the Wifi?

I've also purchased a T460s getting it just a few days ago. I haven't had problems with the wifi but I have questions with the battery problems. I have decreased my screen brightness to 30-50% depending on the light in the room. When typing word docs I thnk the  brightness burns battery power, sometimes as much as 60% of your battery goes to the screen or so the battery monitor is telling me. So I've kicked up the life to over 6 hours with less brightness, but I don't think I should have to kick down an ultrabook that much to get what was promissed.  I did have a problem with the recommended scaling at 150% which crashed the display drive several times. then I set it to 125% and it's fine.

Hi All, I've got a new think pad t460s, and my Ctrl button is acting sticky. When I press on it, it sticks downwards and takes awhile to pop up again.  I did did spill some sticky liquid over the keyboard ytd but I wiped it up real quick and I am pretty sure the Ctrl key was not affected (I don't think it got onto the Ctrl key, and the other keys that got the liquid are fine).  I've tried to peer under the Ctrl key and I don't see any sticky residue but clearly something isn't right! Is it safe to remove the key to give it a clean? And if so, could anyone provide some guidance on how to do so? I've done some googling but it appears that some keyboards cannot be dismantled this way and I would run the risk of ruining the key completely.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!!

I have a Thinkpad T460s since a couple of months. It's the i7 edition with 20GB/1TB edition. The device has been working fine so far, although the CPU fan had to be replaced shortly after I got it (rattling noise). Since a couple of days, the Thinkpad is spinning up the fan very often. Just a simple interaction such as opening Chrome triggers the fan to blow quite loud for some time (20-30s at least). When compiling using Visual Studio, the fan almost spins to the loudest it possibly can. The thing is: it didn't do that all of the time I've had it.  Even when it's completely idle (say 0-2%), the fan still humms a little bit (it didn't do that before either). Could this indicate a hardware issue? I have NBD support but should know whether this could indicate some failure.Thanks for any advice.

Hi, I have a company T460s  This will turn on but only after multiple power button presses and generally only when plugged into the mains power.Once on and connected to the mains it is fine.  I have now left it on my docking station at work without turning off and it is still on the next day.The problem started occuring when it was left in sleep mode, ie just closed the screen down, as when i next came to it had turned off completely and would complete a full start up when eventually it powered up.I suspect that it is a battery issue, although all my company support eventualy offered was that it was out of warranty and i was to order a new Laptop, HP now though. Anyone any thoughts as whilst I'm all up for  new laptop, i am loathed to offload something just for a new battery or power button Thanks

I only has a T460 to test with.  With a 45W charger (I bought it for a X250 which I no longer has), it seems to be charging but the red dot on the lid of the T460 does not light up. It lights up with the 60W charger.

A:Does the 45W charger works on T460s ?

I can report for the T480s that Lenovo Germany supplied mine with the 45W charger.  Is the T460s significantly different in its power draw?

I recently purchased a T460S and would like to disable CPU hyperthreading. I couldn't find any settings in the BIOS related to hyperthreading. Is there anyway to disable it? Thanks

A:How to disable CPU Hyperthreading on T460S?

Hello and welcome,
 
I don't think it's a BIOS option on these machines.  There is a way to control this at the OS level, but I can't tell if it sets numer of cores, or number of hyperthreads.  FWIW:

The document refers to Windows 7 but it's there in Win 10 on my T450s too.
