Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Q: Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Hello,
I am having trouble getting the built-in wireless adapter on this laptop to get connected to the internet. I have installed the following driver:
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/migr-73611
but have had no luck. there are no available wireless connections I can connect to.
I have also tried to use USB wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN725N to connect to internet. It is able to find available connections but when it tries to connect it says unable to connect and give options to troubleshoot. Once troubleshoot is complete it says to investigate router or access point issues. I have reset the router many times. Other devices are working fine with the internet just not this laptop.
I am running windows 7 64Bit.
Please help.
Thanks

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.)

A: Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Can you connect the laptop to the router using a cable at all ?

using just the laptop wireless adapter
unlikely to be this as it is reporting NO networks available - but check anyway please
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?

Hi everyone,
Need a new laptop for my computer science degree, considered quite a few. Was just wondering if anyone has an oppinion on the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2516, I would upgrade it as follows:
i5-460m processor
windows 7 home premium 64
3/4GB RAM
320GB 7200rpm hard drive
9 cell battery
Anyone think i should upgrade it differently, I'd like to get it a little cheaper so where if anywhere should i make the cuts in upgrades?
Has anyone got this laptop? is it particularly heavy to carry around?

Hi guys and/or girls, I am working on upgrading a business laptop which happens to be the Lenovo Thinkpad T410, now im putting an 250GB 850 Evo to replace the INSANELY SLOW HDD, however i am also upgrading the system from windows 7 and upgrading the RAM, now here is where i need help, I am going to be installing a 2x4GB kit of Corsair Vengence SODIMM, however I am unsure whether i should go for the DDR3 1600 kit or the DDR3L 2133 kit, now these are both the same price so the obvious pick would be the DDR3L due to the lower power draw and higher frequency, but the current memory installeld is only 1333, however the laptop is documented to work with 1600 so i know this isn't a problem, however I am unsure if it would even correctly downclock the 2133 or would it simply refuse to post, as well as this, would the laptop still attempt to send 1.5v to the memory or will it automatically do 1.35v as required by the DDR3L, oh how i do wish laptops all offered an "advanced" section within the BIOS which would allow me to tweak all of this stuff, however the only thing the bios lets me do with memory is set an extended mem test during boot which obviously is no help.  Thanks for your help

Hello, I am trying to enable virtualization on a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 laptop at my workplace. I have read elsewhere that I need to initialize Virtualization in my laptop's BIOS (in VMware, I am told I need to "enable Virtualization Technology intel VT-X"). In the BIOS, under Config -> CPU (I have looked in other parts of the BIOS already, but there are no other Virtualization options except in this directory), I see the following optionsCore Multiprocessing........................EnabledIntel(R) Hyper-Threading..................EnabledIntel(R) Virtualization Technology.....DisabledIntel(R) VT-d Feature........................Disabled Now, you would think I should simply be able to scroll down to the last two to enable ... that's not the case. I can scroll up and down (with up and down arrows) between Multiprocessing and Hyper-Threading, but not the last two. I have read this thread: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=113817&p=731447#p731447The solution described does not help me as I can't even scroll down to Virtualization to attempt to enable it. Does anyone know of a solution?

Hi all,I changed the Harddisk at my T410 and Re-Installed Windows 10.Everyting works fine but I have no Wifi at all. Itīs not even displayed as possible network.I did the following myself to find the problem: - Checked the BIOS - Ensure that the drivers are the latest- Did run Lenovo System Update  The network card is a Qualcomm Gobi2000Thanks in advance for your helpRegards,Thorsten

A:No Wifi after Re-Install of Windows 10 at my Lenovo ThinkPad T410

Hello and welcome,
 
I believe that Gobi card is a WWAN card, not the wifi card.  Have a look around Device Manager for a wifi card - maybe as an unknown device.
 
Also make sure the switch (on the left front?) is turned on

Good afternoon all,

I have been in the process of making my laptop, a Lenovo Thinkpad T410, a much better device to use. While I've been having HDD issues, my main issue right now is the battery that I had purchased. With the IBM Power Manager software, the battery is listed as a Sanyo 42T4710. It is a 9 cell battery and I will provide any other information you need.

When I had first purchased the device, after charging for awhile the battery icon on the laptop would begin to flash amber. It will not charge to 100%, and usually stops at 96%. With the battery manager, the charge threshold is set to "Always Full Charge (Start when below 96% and end at 100%). I tried to run the battery gauge reset option, however the laptop permanently stayed at 96% and never discharged lower than that.

Are there any recommendations that you can make for what I should do with the battery?

Thanks!

Hello, I have an issue switching on my laptop since two days ago and I am not sure if the problem is with my laptop's external battery, the motherboard or the power charger. My laptop model is on the list of laptops affected by lenovos battery recall so maybe the issue is with the battery.

Good afternoon all,

I'm trying to help a friend out with the above laptop. The issue he has is that when he powers it on, it loads all the way through to the desktop screen, but he's left with a black screen and cursor.

Everything else up to that point works, he gets the Windows 7 loading screen, when it has gone to the black screen - pressing ctrl, Alt and Delete brings up task manager etc, as it should do, but there's just nothing displayed for the desktop.

Can anyone give me any advice on what to look for? I'd have thought it would be a screen problem, but as I said everything else works normally.

Incidentally, booting into safe mode, it does the same thing. You get the white text in the 4 corners saying 'safe mode' and also the current build of windows text.

Hi all,

I have an end user with a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 that cannot locate the wireless network we have set up in our office. "No wireless networks were found in range" is the message we get when trying to locate our network using the Wireless Network Connection utility. I checked Device Manager to see if his wireless card (Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AG) was disabled or not functioning properly, but it is working fine. All the required drivers are also installed.

The router we use at the office is a Linksys WRT160N V3. Anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem?

First, welcome to TechSpot, good to have you here. I?m somewhat new myself, so I?m still figuring things out. Now, I know this may be elementary for you, but here?s a link to the Windows Vista networking help page: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/88ea056e-664a-4c3d-b977-13f79cb4dedb1033.mspx.

I?m not terribly familiar with the T61 (worked mostly with 43s). Does it have a physical WiFi on/off switch? Sometimes those can be the culprits.

Even if you were using Wi-Fi for the download it's probably just coincidence that something happened to the adapter immediately after the download completed. Do I have that right--that the download did complete?

Since you just downloaded Windows 7--I hope a genuine, not pirated, version--why are you trying to troubleshoot the adapter problem now instead of after a re-install of the OS?

Hello, I have recently been having some trouble with my ThinkPad T410. For the past 2 months, sometimes (but not every time) when I switch it on, I just get a black screen. I turn it off and on again, and then it starts up. However, last week when this happened, I turned it off and on again, and the start up lights began flashing on and off, and I could hear it whirring each time the lights flashed, but it couldn't fully start up. (It felt similar to when a car won't start, when the ignition doesn't catch.) I took it to the local computer shop and they have said that the motherboard is broken. Does this sound right? Has anybody else had these symptoms? And if this does seem like the right diagnosis, how do I ensure that the motherboard doesn't break on my next laptop (is it something I've done, like using it on my lap instead of a table?!)? I would be grateful for any thoughts on this. Thanks, Lucy

A:ThinkPad T410 motherboard broken?

I think that computer repair places ALWAYS say that the motherboard is broken.  Your machine is 6 years old, and, eventually, something does break and it may be nobody's fault.  There are lots of pieces and other ones can cause your symptoms.  I always like to test the memory and the hard drive..  I would run CrystalDiskInfo (freeware) and see what it thinks about your hard drive.
 
What operating system are you running?  If windows 10, open the Start menu, type ?Windows Memory Diagnostic?, and press Enter.
 
If windows 7, Click Start, type mdsched.exe in the Search box, and then press Enter

Hi,I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 laptop (Product number: 2522AA9, BIOS: 6IET85WW (1.45) ). A glass of water was poured on the laptop and it fellt down from desk. Motherboard was damaged I bought a motherboard installed and it worked. I realized that WiFi card was also damaged as it fellt down. I bought exact the same model (If I recall correctly it is Intel WiFi card) but I am getting 1802 Error: Unauthorized network card at boot. I searched for this problem a lot and found some pages that explain how to fix it. No method worked for me. One of the solutions is that, there is a no1802.iso file it must be burnt onto a CD but I don't have any CD/DVD Burner. So I created a bootable USB stick with this iso file and booted laptop from USB stick but it didn't help. The problem is still there. How can I solve this problem?Thanks.

A:Thinkpad T410 and Error 1802

The "no1802" utility was only for much older machines.  It won't work for you.  
 
The same model isn't enough.  You need one with a Lenovo FRU on it.  The same card can have different firmware on it.  When Lenovo or another manufacturer gets a machine approved for sale, they need FCC certification regarding emission levels in U.S. and other similar things in other countries.  The FCC certification is for a particular model computer and the wireless card(s) that were tested with it including the firmware tested.  You probably bought a card that was certified for use in a didderent manufacturer's computer.

I have a brand new T410 (less than a week old) and I have been having problems with it. When I first got it, right out of the box I would get a "windows does not recognize one of your usb devices" message, and when I went to device manager "unknown device" was the issue. So I uninstalled it, and I thought that was that. A couple days later, I started getting BSoDs with the error code "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER". I have gotten a bunch since then (I would guess around 10) and they seem to happen fairly randomly; I haven't been able to pick up a pattern. Here's some basic system information:

OS- Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. Came pre-installed. I have not reinstalled it.
Like I said, my computer is less than a week old. Well, it shipped out of Lenovo's warehouse on june 21st, but it arrived around july 6th or 7th.
I have an intel graphics media accelerator HD (not sure if that's the name of the video card or not?)

Anyways, any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

A:some keys on my thinkpad T410 are not working

I guess you'll need a new keyboard. You can search for a replcement one from T410/420, T510/520, W510/520 and X220 models
 
As workaround you could use an external usb keyboard...

About two weeks ago, I began getting BSODs on a 9 month old ThinkPad T410 running Win Professional 7x64, OEM. This is the original install of the OS, and there have been no recent hardware changes. Prior to this issue, the machine has performed without any failures.

Today's failure happened quite spontaneously (or so it seemed to me) while the ThinkPad was sitting unattended and unused for about 15 minutes.

Thanks very much for your assistance.

Since the Thinkpad T410 does not have HDMI port, I just bought a Yilan USB to HDMI cable (both sides male). Would that work to connect the laptop to my LED screen and transmit audio and video?  Thank you in advance,Alain

Hello there,I wanted to get all my data from my old Thinkpad T410, so I took out the SSD which was installed in it and connected it to my newer Computer. The problem is that my new bought Computer did not recognize the drive at all, so I tested the drive externally on my Thinkpad and this doesn't recognize it either nor will it boot from it when it is connected via USB. I tested the drive on Windows, Linux and MacOS, there are no problems with my external connector, my Thinkpad boots without problems from other USB-Drives and the drives work internally without any problems. On Linux, the drives are detected but not mountable and not formatable... I hope someone has an answer to this problem

Hi, I have a problem with the sound. Whenever I try to use bluetooth speaker, the sound starts being chunky, crashing with too many delays. I have tried two different speakers. After some research through the net and many attempts for fixes, (I think) I found what is the problem. However, I still can not understand excactly how to solve it. Thus, I need some help. I think a picture of the DPC latency will explain everything. Thank you very much for your time!

Hi all, Wondering if there are any others affected with the latest BIOS update? (BIOS version 2.46) Within our company we've had a bunch of Thinkpad T440s and T450s laptops continuosly BSOD, and the only connection I've found so far, which was from checking these forums, is the recent BIOS update. Any thoughts or experience with this would be appreciated.  Cheers, JasonS19

At the risk of turning my still active and sturdy T410 laptop into a rogue bot, I have been searching for the update to the i5 chipset to block the security issues raised by INTEL a few weeks ago. Oddly, (or maybe due to the 'vintage') LENOVO support for the T410 seems to have been dropped. Would think LENOVO would want to keep their name off of the 'machines that create havoc' list by providing, at a minimum, the patch that INTEL has created for most of it's families of processors. Help, anyone?

I have a T410 with Windows 7 Professional which Microsoft invited to upgrade to Win 10. In "preparing" the computer for Win 10 a message indicated that some functions would not work. I did not realize that in taking the next step (whateve that was at the time) it would gto ahead with the upgrade. I found that the offer to choose "when" to upgrade was a choice of three different pre-assigned days. I had to turn off the computer to stop the upgrade, there was no other way (I tried Task Manager, Process Explorer, Alt F4, etc.). Now it is just reserved and waiting. My concerns are:      -will an upgrade result in a Windows 10 "Professional"? or will distinctions between "Home" and "Profesional" be lost?     -the preparation process indicated that Intel PROSet/ Wireless would have to be re-installed. As best as I can understand from the Intel site the wireless adaptor | Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN | in the T410 is not supported in Win 10. The Intel site said to go to the manufacturer. Will Lenovo have an update for this?     -Intel PROSet/Wireless may not be critical to me but a wireless driver will be. Will the T410 wireless function still function? Has anyone had experience with the T410 moving to Win 10? Thanks. 

A:Is upgrading ThinkPad T410 to Windows 10 risky?

Hi and welcome, ssumOfficially, upgrade to the win10 on the T410 isn't supported:https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103535- win10 reduction matches the source OS.- definitely, Lenovo will not update the win10 drivers for the Intel 6200 itself, it's a deal of the Intel. But as you noticed there are no upgrades toohttps://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/59470/Intel-Centrino-Advanced-N-6200-Dual-Band- win8/10 manages wireles features from the metro app (Lenovo Settings, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/lenovo-settings/9wzdncrfj12p#app-details) and Charms. For metro app some drivers are needed:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t41...Note there are not only win10 incompatible laptop components, but applications also.

I really need some help...  I've been using Thinkpad T410 for a year but it's strange these days. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.A blue screen randomly appears shortly after boot, and after reboot there is a black screen error. It's 'error 2100 Hard drive intiallization error (3)' Then I pressed esc and I was still unable to boot. However when I reboot again, it can successfully boot into Windows 10.Then it's a loop, the whole thing happens again soon after it...It all started since I installed an online game. The installation failed thirteen times and the blue screen appeared later. The game had no virus or malware and I uninstalled it already. I've searched some solutions on google, but they don't seem to work for me...The blue screen problem is still there. It usually appears when I ignore the computer for a while and during software installations, there were freezes before it occurs but I've no idea why. I'm able to use Windows 10, but the blue screen just appears suddenly sometimes and stops everything.Anyone please, help me. Sorry for my bad grammar though...

I upgraded my Lenovo Thinkpad T410 from 4GB to 8GB RAM a while ago. The new memory seems to work without a problem, but the battery has started acting up.

Sometimes the laptop won't start unless the charger is plugged in, even though the battery monitor says 98% full after starting. If the charger is pulled off after this, the laptop shuts down instantly.

Sometimes the computer does start without the charger plugged in, but it might randomly shutdown at some point, again instantly as if the battery had been removed while running.

Could this be somehow caused by the RAM upgrade? Or is it more likely the battery or the connection between the battery and the laptop is broken?

Specs:
Lenovo T410
Windows 7 / Ubuntu 16.04 dual boot
Intel i7 M620
Intel Ironlake Mobile graphics
8 GB RAM
500 GB HDD

A few days ago my laptop shut down (it'd been happening a lot).So normally i opened it again and it started to slow down more than usual and it freezed so i of course tried to restart to fix it but when i am booting something shows up about not being able to locate the os and i clicked esc and then after about 7 seconds i saw a message along the lines of no valid operating system found. Then there were a few devices listed and amongst them was my dvd and to the side it said system error.My laptop is not with me at the moment but if anyone could give me a method of fixing this without the os disk(the laptop came with windows 7 but after a few months i upgraded to windows 10 by their website and it automatically gave me a code)it would be a great help
