Preferred Solution: thinkpad l440 cpu upgrade?

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.)

If you do it yourself it will certainly be cheaper, but the CPU is not considered customer-replaceable, so it may affect your warranty status. If you can do the replacement in a professional manner, so it doesn't look worked on, probably nobody will complain, as long as you keep the old part and replace it back before getting service. The FRU of the i7-4600m is 04X4049. You do not want to get one marked "ES" (engineering sample). The ES parts may not be final versions

I wish to obtain definitive information about the internal composition of the trackpad for the L440 laptop given my allergy to wool felt. Does the trackpad use any felt cushioning or gaskets? I recently noticed what appears to be small particles of lint around the crevices of the trackpad, but before cleaning the periphery of the pad I wish to be certain that these particles are not from underlying felt material. I would hope to obtain an answer directly from Lenovo. Thank you.

Hi, is there any way to install express card slots on thinkpad l440 with qm87 chips?

RELEVANCY SCORE 60.4

Confirmed having happened to five separate devices now, so this is not a random glitch. Installing KB4467691 (Windows Security Update) will cause the laptop to hang at the "Lenovo" splash screen at startup. It will have the standard "press enter to interrupt boot" message, but will not respond. SOLUTION: Hit enter at startup before the boot hangs, to access the BIOS. Under Security, disable SecureBoot. Windows should now launch successfully. It's possible that you can then remove KB4467691 and re-enable SecureBoot again, but I have not yet been able to confirm this.

A:L440 graphics card upgrade

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
As with most every laptop, the graphics subsystem is either integrated with the CPU package, or if it's an actual discrete GPU, soldered to the system board. In some cases a particular machine may have been offered with either integrated or discrete graphics. In that instance, a machine with integrated graphics might be upgraded via a system board swap.
 
Looking at pg2 of the L440 FRU Parts List: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/l440_fru_list_20140825.pdf
you'll see main two types of system boards. One is "Integrated Graphics 4600" and the other is "nVdia N14M-GE with 1GB", so you do have that option, but it could be costly.
 
You can refer to the hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/l440_l540_hmm_en_sp40a26004_03.pdf
to get an idea of the physical task.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.

hello there,

I've tried to upgrade the RAM of my IBM ThinkPad R31 (Type 2656). It came with 128 and I've purchased 2 x 512. However the machine refuses to boot up with the new RAM. The 512 RAM's specs are:
144-pin unbuffered DIMM
Density: LOW
PC133 133FSB
2.5 Volts
6 Layer unbuffered
Non ECC
As far as I can tell from the R31 manual this RAM should work. Also, I visited crucial.com and my new RAM answers all their questions with regards to my machine.

The only difference between the 512 and 128 is height - the 128 is about 5mm higher. What does this mean in terms of the type of RAM it is?

If anyone could help out that would be great. Thanks,

A:Thinkpad 11e Ram Upgrade

Hello and welcome,
 
You don't indicate whether you have a 1st or 2nd generation 11e, or if it's Intel or AMD based.
 
Taking a guess that it's 2nd gen, here is the base spec:  http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool%5CSys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%2011e%20(2nd%20Gen)/ThinkPad_11e_2nd_Gen...
 
Intel models: 4GB or 8GB / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L,soldered to systemboard, no sockets
AMD models: 8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L,one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket
 
If it's an AMD model that has a RAM socket, this is one of the available hardware maintenance manuals (there are several depending on MT-M - machinen type-model) that has instructions for accessing the memory slot:  (English) Hardware Maintenance Manual - ThinkPad 11e (Type 20D9, 20DA), Yoga 11e (Type 20D9, 20DA)
 
Knowing your exact MT-M would help to determine the exact specs and whether the RAM is replaceable.

I've removed the i5 processor in a couple of T510 and 520 laptops and installed i7-640M or i7-2640M processors. Recently I installed an i7-2960XM which performed nicely. One problem though. I had some suspicions that this may not be fully compatible as it may create too much heat. With this in mind after I installed this processor I closely monitored the temperature and found that most of the time it remained between 115 to 165 ...... until I began loading down applications. The temp would soar up to near 200 degrees but would dwell shortly in the 175 range then drop down to 160 or 140.  Since then I've removed this cpu and will most likely go with the i7-2640M. The big question is wold the much faster i7-2960XM be compatible? I'm not fully convinced the program (Advanced System Care) is correctly monitoring the temperature. However I dare not risk damaging my system if this system is overheating. The performance increase of the faster cpu is very significant. Do I dare risk going faster?

ok I have a question does anyone know if it is possible for me to upgrade a cpu card in a thinkpad 770 from a 200 mhz to a 366 mhz it looks to be as simple as once I am in there just unscrewing the old one a placing in the new one but I was still curious to see if this has been done or if there maybe following issues with the board or heat. The processor does come from another 770 series machine.

Thanks,
Chris

my main concern is if the board would be compatable with the new cpu card I would be putting in. Any ideas?

Thinking about upgrading the CPU on my ThinkPad R61i. It's the R61i 7650-D6G (15.4", without IEEE) dated 08/02. Currently has a T5450 @ 1.66Ghz and GM965/GL960 chipset. As the T5450 has an FSB of 667MHz, and it's 65nm litho - do I have to stick with Merom chips (and not go for Penryn)? (The GM965 should support an 800MHz FSB - but not sure if the board itself would). Am I limited to the T5xxx series (i.e. 2MB Cache), or could I go for a T7xxx? (even those were made after the laptop date?). Also - is the the unofficial BIOS (I forget what it's called now - Middleton?) upgrade(?) a good thing to do? Help, and more importantly experience, very much appreicated - thanks guys!

A:Thinkpad R61i CPU Upgrade

Welcome to the forum!
 
Middleton's BIOS is a must on any *61 system in my opinion.
 
As for the CPU, you could definitely go for a Merom CPU (T7300/7500/7700/7800). Depending on the board revision, you might or might not be able to utilize a Penryn CPU (T8100/8300/9300/9500).
 
The biggest upgrade will be a decent SSD and 4GB of RAM, though, even if you choose to go with one of the less-powerful but dirt-cheap CPUs such as T7300/7500.
 
Happy upgrading.

Hello, I have a Lenovo X301 and I love with all my heart. I've just recently upgraded my SSD and RAM. Read a lot of material about upgrading this model and found some rumors from 2009 that it should support SL9600 and SP9600 CPU's. I've consulted with Intel and they suggested I should contact Lenovo support to clarify whether there is a BIOS support for these CPU's because both SL9600 and SP9600 fit the socket (BGA956). So is there a BIOS that supports these CPU's for X301?I have read some korean forums and some people have successfully upgraded X301 to SP9600, yet it is unclear if they made any software/hardware modifications beforehand to make that possible. This is not a rational but sentimental decision, I know it is not worth the money. SU9600 is an official option, but it is such a minor upgrade I would not bother. Thank you in advance  Offtopic - after I installed Lenovo service bridge on my thinkpad, I am getting an internal server error every time I try to go to lenovo support page. Several people have reported this too, since Nov 30, 2016. Someone should look into that code

Hi, I got my thinkpad P51 few days ago, everything works fine so far, the configuration is as following: CPU: 7700PCIe NVME: Samsung 512GRam: 16G. I am thinking about upgrade this machine since I want to run multiple virtual machine on it. So I am planning to install another 16G ram and 512G SSD on the PCLe port, I wonder if I do upgrade those, can I still install a SSD in the HDD slot. I want to put a 1TB SSD hdd in there. Or I can only choose one of the option (full PCLe hdd or SATA hdd)  Thanks in advance 

A:Thinkpad P51 upgrade Option

you can have two 80mm M.2 drives and one 2-1/2" drives.  The M.2 drives can be SATA or PCIe.  The 2-1/2" drive is SATA, 7mm thick.

I purchased a Thinkpad that is already preconfigured including Windows 10 Home. Lenovo recommends Windows 10 Pro but since this purchase can not be "configured", how can I upgrade the Windows 10 from Home to Pro, as Lenovo recommends?

> Lenovo recommends Windows 10 Pro
 
Sometimes the sales site recommends Pro but it doesn't always explain why you would want to. Is there some particular Pro-only feature that you need?
 
This article not only explains why (or if) you may want to upgrade to Win10 Pro but also explains how to do it. How to easily upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro
