I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all, My T480 (20L5) does not resume from sleep with the AC adapter plugged in on BIOS 1.17. The issue occurs both when resuming using the lid or the power button. Upon unplugging the AC adapter, the computer instantly resumes from sleep. The issue is resolved by reverting to BIOS 1.16. Issue occurs both in Windows 10 and in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (kernel ver. 4.15.0).

Hi All,  My '21 days old' ThinkPad T480 - Top of the line machine warms up at the top-left section of the keyboard, just above the vents!   I'm not sure what needs to be done. I raised a complain with the Lenovo Support and the technician who paid a visit today, apparently was ready to replace the motherboard, because he thought that I reported a heating issue with my machine. But that wasn't the case. I'm surprised though that they were ready to replace my machine with a new mother board, without knowing the exact issue.  Any ways, so all he did was replace the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU, I was okay with that, as I read in many forums that replacing the thermal paste helped reduce the heating issues.  Its only now that I'm starting to realize, that I don't think its more of a heating issue, but a SERIOUS design flaw in T480 machines.  The top-left edge portion of the keyboard that which is just above the vents, seems to start warming up within 30 mins of NORMAL usage. I don't see the fan doing its job either, may be its suppose to speed up at very high temps, irrespective, what I think is the problem is that the fan case that is connected to the vents, for some reason the casing touches the vents plastic body and that's transferring the warmness up to the place where ones left palm would naturally rest while typing.    It warms up to the extent that I can feel its not comfortable for me to ...

According to https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/docksSearch/ the Lenovo T480 20L6 laptop is compatible with the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station. However the docking station uses an entirely different power supply than the laptop (the old blocky rectangular one vs the newer mini rounded rectangle). The laptop itself fits on the docking station, but does not charge despite the docking station being plugged in. There are two connector slots on the dock that appear to be for the newer power supply, however neither of those provide power either. Is the docking station incorrectly listed as compatible when it really isn't, is there a hardware malfunction, or something else entirely?

My laptop is Thinkpad T480, core i 7, 32GB RAM with Nvidia and 1 TB SSD. Initially I have Dolby Digital Advanced Audio(DDAA) Profile Editor as desktop short-cut ( the editor has a graphic equalizer which can be edited). But after the windows Update, the DDAA profile editor has been disspaeared. I uninstall the audio driver, restart and then again install Audio driver from Lenovo website but the editor did not appear. Even in the C drive , I tried to retrieve but failed. Then I go to Lenovo VANTAGE app and found this. Here, the mode can be changed but there is no graphical equalizer like DDAA editor. What's is the solution of this problem?

Yesterday, I accidently droped just little water on the keyboard. It remained working for a while before the whole keyboard froze and stopped working at all, the strange thing was the beeping that the laptop keeps doing on one second interval, it does not stop beeping unless you press the shut down. The strange thing is that the laptop all working except the keyboard, and this beeping every second that never stops. It is like a blood rate device voice that you hear at the ICU if you are sitting beside a patient. My question is there a way to avoid replacing the keyboard as it seems it is a keyboard issue if I am not wrong? Or should I try to open it and dry it in some way then connect it again and see if this beeps goes and if the keyboard returns to life again? Thank you for the help.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X201 laptop with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit factory installed. Due to some major problems with the USB-drivers, I want to do a fresh Windows 7 installation, but in a different way. I've created a new partition on the harddrive, and I would like to install Windows on that new partition, so there are 2 Windows installations on 2 different partitions, and then transfer the data between the partitions, and install the programs over time, and then finally delete the old installation, when I've finished setting up the new installation with programs and data. My questions is now:1. Is it possible to do that, and how do I do it?2. I want to do a original Windows OEM installation, with the Lenovo drivers and all that, but what do I need to do that?3. Will the product key on the computer work on both installations at the same time, when they are on 2 different partitions, but on the same computer? Best regards:Aksel Christoffersen

Hi, I"m using a T480 with Windows Hello / face recognition, but it works very unreliable.And I am not referring to the quality of recognition, but the operation itself.After a reboot, I can see the IR LEDs blinking, so I know the camera is in operation and it works perfectly.after a while (Don't know what exactly is needed to reproduce, perhaps some sleep/hibernate cycles), the IR LEDs and the camera are simply not activated on the sign in screen. Fingerprint Auth works, however, there were some cases when fingerprint also refused to work in such cases. Inside windows, I have seen several times the Window Camera Frame server taking too much CPU and  I thought it might be related, so I disabled this service. It did not change anything - Face recognition still worked for some time, and then it stopped again. I suspect this could be some driver issue. Anyone else facing such problems? Any ideas, hints? Thanks

I recently ordered a T480s that has Windows 10 on an NVMe drive, and I separately ordered a Toshiba RC100 NVMe hoping to put it in the WWAN slot and install FreeBSD on it. Unfortunately, it seems that the Lenovo BIOS doesn't allow booting from the WWAN slot.So I'm thinking that the only option left is chainloading the WWAN slot. I spent some time trying to install GRUB on the Windows drive, but the Ubuntu LiveUSB I tried to do that with didn't seem to have the necessary files without fully installing Ubuntu, the FreeBSD LiveUSB seems unable to mount any drives or partitions (it claims "no such file or directory" even though I can see them with ls), and I can't find anything that promises to do exactly what I want from Windows. I found one thing that I thought was going to work until I found out it was for installing GRUB on the secondary drive, and Grub2Win, but I couldn't find any specific mention of Grub2Win being used to boot FreeBSD (or any BSD), so I was unsure. Edit: I forgot to mention that I also tried the Plop boot manager, but it couldn't detect the new NVMe drive either (or even Windows). If anyone could provide advice, that would be very much appreciated!

Hello, We have an Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2nd Gen (20A7, 20A8) Windows 10 x64 and the computer performance slowed down since we updated the system with Lenovo utility, the most relevant update is BIOS update us 1.31.1.19. The CPU usage increases from 5% to 9x% with no reason and its continiously increasing and decreasing without opened applications, we also installed Intel IO updates. Somebody have the same situation or knows how to fix it? Thanks,Regards

A:Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2nd Gen slow performance after installing Lenovo updates

That is the reason why I always going to see forums of new updates, those updates are like beta, with bugs and other things that cost us to waiste our time fixing it and getting stressed.I got critical update about bios, but as my performance is great I don't updating anything.My answer would be, to backup your bios version, it will get things back to work properly.And for future just don't install anything, after installing it cost problems.Yesterday I wanted to download program, yeah downloaded virus too, rofl, internet is full of virus, so technical supports could make more money ( if you can't fix yourself)

Hello,Let me start off and say that I own a Lenovo T410, T420, T430, T480 and several other machines, and I am very familiar with these devices, and my primary operating systems are Windows 7 and OpenSUSE linux OS. As required by my employer, I bought a new laptop, Lenovo T480 which came with W10Pro (cannot downgrade) and installed an OpenSUSE KDE. In the beginning the T480 on W10 worked smoothly, but after one of the automatic updates, my sound system isn't working properly anymore. Before the update, I could have a dual channel sound output meaning, on W7 I could use "Realtek Audio Manager" to choose that I will have different volume setting for: 1. Machine speakers.2. Headphones if/when plugged in. This would prevent my laptop for blasting sound to the room through the speakers if I accidentally unplugged the headphone. This is a crucial feature to me as I am often connected to a meeting and I sometimes like to listen to music while working. This feature is gone. I have it working on the linux side, it is definitely driver/OS problem, not hardware. First, Lenovo T480 +W10 never came with realtek audio manager support.Second, I cannot download it seperately, and I somewhat get a buggy "resolution" if I downgrade where the mute button sticks. I am wondering if someone was able to solve this.Thank you for your time.-SJLPHI

The SSD you list is a SATA device.  The WWAN/SSD slot is described in the base spec as PCIe - and doesn't mention SATA.  It may be that SATA devices are not supported in that slot.

Either way will work. You can install Ultimate without SP1 and then add SP1 or you can install directly to Ultimate SP1 if you have that.

There's usually no big benefit from upgrading to 64 bit if you have only 4 GB of RAM, but it certainly works fine.

If Lenovo tech support didn't suggest returning the laptop, I would venture to guess there are no hardware issues. If that is the case, I would wait for the disk from Lenovo and call them for support after receiving the disk and before doing the new installation of the OS.

Dear Lenovo Community, I got my brand new ThinkPad T480 laptop with i5 8350, win 10 pro & Nvidia mx150 dedicated graphics card 10 days ago. From the past 3 days, My laptop started rebooting without notice. I lost about 800 lines of my code during one of these random reboots. There is no blue screen error before the laptop restarts. Nor is there any abnormal program behaviour. It just restarts... I have the windows version 1803 installed on my laptop. I updated the windows version & the drivers through Lenovo vantage app, however, the problem persists.Only a week into my ownership I experienced these issues. Now I am afraid this laptop will give up during my coding or my work & I have stopped using this. I have contacted the tech support & they have suggested I apply for a return. I do not want a return. I have been using Thinkpads for the past 5 years & they have never failed me. I don't want one bad experience to ruin my brand loyalty. What should my next steps be here? I am very much not interested in getting things repaired here as I will always fear this machine rebooting on me. I understand that any computer may fail. However, I find it hard to believe something as robust & reliable as the T480 would fail in the first week of ownership. I haven't been running any unsafe programs and my antivirus is up to date. Thank in advance

A:Thinkpad T480 display too dark?

"Too dark" is subjective.  I cannot comment without seeing the screen.  When I have an issue like yours, I prefer to physically take the machine a warranty servicer or dealer.  I can then turn the machine on and we can discuss it while we are both present.  If you return it, you don't have a good way to know if your screen is normal or defective.

I know much has been written and discussed regarding this topic but I'm pretty sure that I've tried most if not all of the recommended solutions and still can't get SP1 to install on my Dell Latitude E6400 laptop. Here's a little background.
This computer is joined to a domain network both most if not all the attempts have been done using a local Admin account and ran with elevated privileges to possibly rule out permission issues.

Each time the SP1 installed appears to go all the way through without issue and reboots, says configuring updates step ...then goes to reverting updates and upon logon says something like "update was uncesssful" and click details for more and shows some two word reason code like "Internal error 0x....".
I will get a screenshot of exact message if needed but I research it along with event log message and no good clues.

1. Uninstall All security software
2. ran and cleaned any malware, PUPS (was infected before but should be very clean now)
3. ran sfc /scannow
4. multiple runs of SURT (CBS folder compressed and attached)
5. Windows update replacement package..packs.zip file (Windows 7 Service Pack 1 not installing)

UPDATE: The failed error message is Internal Error Error 0x8007054f

A:Windows 7-32bit Pro Service pack 1 not installing..

first; one thing you could try is doing a system restore to a point back to where you know that windows update was working for ya; i would try this first since this is a relatively simple thing to do. Click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore and find a restore point back to where you know it was working the way its suppose to and see what happens. Post back if it doesnt and we can take it from there.

I have a new T480 with a 512 PCI-e M.2 SSD, i7-8650u, 32GB of RAM... but it takes 35-40 seconds to boot from pressing the power button to the login screen, which is much slower than my 4-5 year old ThinkPad with much inferior hardware. When the red Lenovo screen appears at boot, it stays here for a long while before reaching the login screen. Any thoughts?

Hello,I've got brand new T480 with ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C with USB-A Dock and I'm experiencing USB issues when docked.I have read related topics and they seems to be dead without any working solution. Description of problem:When I docked my T480 for the first time, all USBs (only mouse and keyboard) were working. I had left office for night and when I have returned and docked my laptop again, USBs seems to stop working. I?ve tried to reconnecting dock, powering dock off and unplugging devices or changing USB slots without any success.Only restart of computer seemed to get USBs working back again. BUT, there have been about 5 minute period when USB devices were randomly connecting and disconnecting without any warning.Problem appeared again when I left my desk for 30 minutes without turning off or putting laptop into sleep. USBs were dead again. Only restart helped and it was followed with 5 minute period of randomly disconnecting USB devices again.All other connected devices ? 1x FHD monitor via DP, 1x FHD monitor via HDMI and headphones via front 3.5mm jack are working without any problems and laptop is charging properly as well. My laptop is fully updated via Lenovo Vantage and dock in currently at only available FW. Is there any solution to this? It?s get pretty annoying for laptop that is meant to be docked! And it seems that problem occurs accros multiple ThinkPad Thunderbolt docks.. Thank you

Hey Everyone, I'm having an issue where my dock is somehow affecting my monitor's ability to display at its native resolution. My monitor 1 is "dumbed" down to display at 1920 x 1080 and it refuses to let it display at its native resolution.Do I need a different dock? Thanks,Condor90 Current specs: Laptop: T480 20L5Version: 10.0.017134Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Gen 2Firmware: V10011Monitor 1: LG Ultra HDResolution: 3840 x 2160Monitor 2: LG FULL HDResolution: 1920 x 1080Monitor 3: T480 screenResolution 1920 x 1080

Hello, if anyone could help me regarding T480 Hard Disk Upgrade, would appreciate it,  I'm having a T480 with standard 1TB Hard Disk Drive and Now I need to add SSD as secondary disk storage. I've spoken with my Lenovo representative and according to him, it is impossible to as SSD as secondary storage. I have gone through this community posts and read about related posts and realize that it is possible to add a secondary disk drive. But I have no idea about what kind of SSD (SSD Type, Brand, Size,..) support for T480 and warranty validity for the disk upgrade. Kindly enlighten me further on this matter.

 Dear Lenovo and fellow community members Situation Last week, I purchased 2 Lenovo T480 for an all Lenovo customer. Both PC's experience randomly screens freeze, with an interval between 15 min and several hours, so we have removed them from the production enviorement. When freezed, it's possible to move the mouse curser, but everythink else is freezed. Even envoking Ctrl+Alt+Del does not refresh the screen. Its possible to break the freeze by putting the PC into hibernation (close lid) and waking it up again, or by resetting the graphics driver via shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Win+B.  This behavior makes me believe that it's related to the graphics, which is Intel UHD Graphics 620. I have run all Lenovo Userdefined Tests from Lenovo Vantage, and they all turned out green. All drivers and software is fully updated via Windows Update and Lenovo Vantage.  The problem seems to be more freqvent when connected to an external monitor in the dock, than when used as a laptop only. But due to the periodic nature of the problem, I have no reel data to back this up.The problem also seems to only occur during use and inputs from user, I have not been able to provoke the problem during a 12H loadtests running several instances of Crome with Youtube, Edge, Acrobat Reader and open jpg.   Does any of you experience similar problems, then I would apreciate suggestions for solutions. I's a very difficult problem to trouble... Read more

A ThinkPad T470 I ordered has been delayed a couple of times and will be reaching on Monday. Luckily, a friend is leaving on Friday and could bring the laptop to me.There are plenty of posts about how efficient the 8th generation i5 processors would be.. Being so close to the T480 release, bothers me. If it was the same situation six months ago, I wouldn't have bothered obviously.Lenovo's return policy is designed to make people hold onto their laptops.. ? (15% restocking fee and return shipping is on the buyer)This is the configuration I ordered:https://i.imgur.com/17wYqub.pngAnd intend to upgrade the HDD with a Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB and memory with a Crucial 16 GB dual rank memory stick. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ct16g4sfd824aIf anything, the laptop will be delivered on Monday and I could start using it in a week's time and but don't have any idea when I would receive the T480 in my hands!Any thoughts would be awesome. Thank you, as always.
