L440: No On Screen Display for FN keys

Q: L440: No On Screen Display for FN keys

My laptop really works fine - there's just one point annoying me: For a few days now, I don't have any on screen display anymore for all FN keys: no volume, brightness display - no problem. No Caps display - ehm. No selection for display changing or wifi/bluetooth - I don't have an idea to do it otherwise. No bluetooth entry in the system panel neither. WLAN works fine, but Bluetooth is off. I want my black on screen alerts back! I tried with updating the power management - nothing changed. I tried to reinstall the power management driver - nothing. What can I do?

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.)

One hint says you could activate the on screen display in the display settings. What, please, is the Display Settings dialogue called like in German Win7? I can't find it.

Hello everyone, I replaced my screen on my L440, because it would not show any sign of being alive anymore (external monitor workds fine). I used this "opportunity" to upgrade it to full hd, also replaced the connecting cable.Nonetheless, my screen is still always dark - in Windows, as also for the bios or post screen (external works fine here).Depending in which panel I install, the old low res or ne full hd, the resolution on the external  monitor responses to that (clone mode).Thus I assume, the both cabels are fine, both panel are fine, the system recognizes them. But why is it still blank.Also tried to trigger closing the lid with a magnet (next to the webcam), only shutsdown then.Any ideas?!

I recently bought a new PORTEGE Z30T-A PT24CE-01600EN5

It was Win7 pre installed and I upgraded to:
OS Version Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro 6.3.9600 with their CDs.

The problem is the FN keys do not display on screen.
When I first got my laptop under Win7 I would press the FN key and options would display on my screen, that was great. But after a day it doesnt display anything on the screen.

How can I fix this problem?

A:FN keys do not display on screen Portege Z30T-A

Hi

At first I must say that described issue is not a problem.
Under Win8.1 Toshiba has offered FN keys usage in two modes:
-Special function mode
-Standard F1-F12 mode.

If you use Win8.1 open please Desktop Assist > Tools & Utilities > System Settings > Keyboard.

There you can change function keys mode.

Please test it how it works.

Hello- This is the first time I've needed to post here - I wouldn't say I'm an advanced user, but I have a pretty good idea what I'm doing. So please bear with me. My specific problem is that, seemingly following one of the attached (screenshot) windows updates, I can no longer use the Fn+F keys properly. Some of them do work (I can adjust brightness, hibernate), but I cannot for instance open WiFi controls (Access Connections) with Fn+F5, Communications Utility with Fn+F6, or connect to a projector with Fn+F7. Also, the accompanying screen overlay isn't right. The manual volume adjust button doesn't show the volume change on screen (same for mute button); neither does Fn+F8/F9 for brightness; ditto for CAPS-LOCK key, so I don't know whether caps lock is on or not! But these buttons/key-combinations do at least work. I have spent a long time trying to fix this following for example treads like below: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-11e-Windows-E-and-Edge/E530-special-keys-FN-F4-FN-F5-etc-are-n... https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T530-Fn-keys-and-quot-On-Screen-Display-... Updating HotKeys feature integration manually did not help.

Hello, I have a problem with setting a custom splashscreen when booting my Thinkpad L440 in UEFI mode. The BIOS I am using is version 1.86 and model L440 obtainable from here http://support.lenovo.com/no/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-l-series-laptops/thinkpad-l44... as per the requirements I have made the images 16 colours palette (4bpp), both images adhere to the standards logo1 legacy boot (640X480) and logo2 UEFI boot (1366X768) where I used .gif format. The problem is that only the legacy boot screen splash actually gets used, but the UEFI boot splash image (logo2) does not appear at all. Everything that happens is that you get a completely black boot screen with only the (press enter to interrupt boot... ) option. I have tried many different pictures, and different formats but arrived to the conclusion that it is broken.  Trying to boot Windows with broken custom splash screen, I get a BSOD with the error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL  and can't boot into Windows 8.1. This makes me believe that something is not working properly, and not only does setting a custom splash screen on UEFI boot not actually show my bootscreen, it could have damaged some UEFI boot drivers so that Windows is unable to start properly. Maybe the tool is outdated and did not save the splash screen correctly? Upon re-flashing the BIOS using winuptp.exe it asked me if I wanted to keep my custom splash screen, and when I hit yes it simply crashed. &nb...

I have Dell Inspiron 5547 laptop (Touch Screen, 15 inches, 16 GB RAM and i7 4th Gen processor, Out of Warranty). Some days back, suddenly the display went dim and anything is hardly visible. After some initial investigation, the display chip (may be VGA or LED display chip) on the motherboard appears to be burnt out (may be due to voltage surge). Even the numbers printed on the chip is not readable because of which it is difficult for the local repairing shops to repair this problem.
I think Dell India Service Center doesn't deal with chip level repair and hence replacing motherboard is the only way they can fix this. This will be very costly (considering that the laptop is not under warranty so will have to pay for warranty extension, motherboard replacement and repair service) and time consuming.
Hence, to avoid all this I have come here to seek some assistance.
If there are anyone using the same laptop (Inspiron 5000 series 5547 Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM) then could you please take a clear picture of your laptop's motherboard or if you recognize the display chip then only that should be sufficient. In this case, I can read the chip related number from the image and try to repair it.
What are the charges for buying a warranty for the laptop, motherboard of my laptop and repairing charge? 

Request your response and help.

Regards,
Rohit Kumar

A:Display Issue - Dim Display for Dell Inspiron 5000 (Model 5547) - Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM

You'll have to call Dell about the possibility of a warranty extension;  in the US, it's sometimes possible but will likely run over $300 -- or about what a board replacement would cost.
If you're getting video, the GPU is OK -- and it's more likely the power circuit to the backlight that's bad.  It'll likely cost as much to repair as to replace the board -- though you'll still be putting $300-400 into an out of warranty system, so replacing the system may be a better idea (if you do this, consider buying a 3-year warranty with the next system).

This appears to be a fairly common problem with Compaqs. I have fixed several by removing the keyboard (the screws are marked underneath with a "K"). Be careful with the ribbon cables from the screen. Remove and reseat these ribbon cables, nad the keyboard. Slacken ALL the case screws underneath and re-tighten evenly, firmly, but no too tight.

Please bare with me, I'm new to this but:

I have a Dell XPS 15 running 7 x64 (more details please see my page) and I am trying to dim my display through the OS. When I press the Fn keys to change the display brightness, the notification shows on screen that it is changing the brightness with a nice little slider and all, but nothing moves and the brightness won't change. I've tried pressing repeatedly, holding down, no change. So naturally, the next step is to change the display brightness settings in power options. Only problem is, IT'S NOT THERE! I have no option relating to display brightness. I've tried re-installing display driver with no help. I don't know if it is a problem with Dell's display not supporting the function or with Windows 7 not offering.

Thanks in advance for any help, please ask if any more info is needed.

You have to install Lenovo Utility to get this to work. Also after manual reinstallation you should install various drivers for components in your laptop from Lenovo website to get the best of your laptop. If you don't want to do that, the better soution than reinstallation is to restore factory image using OneKey Recovery. This will automatically reinstall Windows with all drivers built in as well as various Lenovo applications like Lenovo Utility.

I started having issues yesterday, the day after I installed teamviewer a program that is on my iPad also to remotely control the laptop. At first the screen started freezing when I was in the middle of a Java game. So I restarted the laptop only to have it freeze at the main screen (after login).

The screen would freeze the display would change to a very low resolution (I think). So I kept restarting it only to repeat. Until eventually once past the windows logo the screen would turn black and blank. Sometimes the display would turn on black and blank and other times it would do that after the logo.

A few times I managed to get it to go into safe mode and I restored to a few days ago but it made no difference, I also tried many other things like changing some settings but nothing worked.

So after like 2 or 3 hours I Rolled back and disabled "nvidia quadro nvs 135m" (since I read it might be causing the issue and I should uninstall it which I couldn't), once I disabled it I restarted the computer and made it to the main screen without issues, and I could even load my game. I enabled it again And restarted the computer only to have the same issues so I disabled it again after finally getting into safe mode.

I don't know if it works fine now, I left it on at most for 5-10 minutes without any issues and I never actually logged into the game to see if it works.

I bought the following one, which should be compatible https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KBZH72I/ref=twister_B00KBZH7E6?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 My question is, after I get it, should I just remove the original one and install the new one? Is there any other thing I should to complete the replacement? The OS is on my HDD, but I don't plan to move it to the new SSD. In this case, do I just need to remove the old one and install the new one? The reason why I ask is that the manual says: "Ensure that you partition the M.2 solid-state drive after installing it on the computer you are servicing. Otherwise, the M.2 solid-state drive will not function correctly." Thanks a lot!

A:L440 - M2 Sata

Short answer is yes. My L440 has a Transcend TS256GMTS400 I installed in the M.2 slot, and the software that is downloadable for it allows you to copy the O/S drive to the SSD and boot from it. My L440 goes from power on to logon in literally a few seconds and I still have the 512GB HDD available for things that don't need the blinding speed of the SSD.

About 2 mo ago I got a brand new (warehouse fugitive) L440.  It had Win7 Pro 64bit.  the first thing I did after starting it was to let it upgrade to Win 10.  I'm a big fan and really like it, the 440, not so much.  I like the speed and quality of the build, It does everything I want and does it exceptionally well, I just can't stand the keyboard.  After reinstalling Win 10 in my T400 everything is finally working as it should and It has a far superior keyboard.  I want to reset it to give to my brother.  When I go to reset it I only get two options, and I don't really want to lose all the factory installed apps.  I'm alson a little concerned that Windows Explorer is showing Windows 7_OS (C.  It has all the app files.  It's not shown as a reset option in Settings, tho.   What's the best way to go here.  I still hae just shy of 4 year s of warrantee on it and don't want to mess that up.

Hi Ms,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understand that your display is not working in your L440 laptop.
 
Issue might be with the LCD cable. Since the external display is working fine there is no issue with the motherboard.
 
Note: As per the Lenovo policy, the warranty will be void if the laptop is dismantled by yourself.
 
We would like you to visit the nearest authorised Lenovo service centre to purchase the power supply.

Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best Regards,

I have an L440 (20AS) that has an M.2 expansion slot. My laptop is having the stock 500GB HDD as the only storage installed as of now. I am thinking of installing an M.2 SSD and using that as the primary boot disk, while keeping my current HDD as it is for pure storage purpose. I have a few questions:1. Is it possible to have such configuration without any hiccups?2. If yes, which would be the best M.2 disk to buy? Any suggestions?3. Is there any way to transfer my current system from existing HDD without reinstalling Windows (I am on Windows 10) on the M.2 SSD? My current C: drive is 65GB (25GB free). All data except installed softwares are in D: drive which is 400GB. So if everything is OK, I will try to buy an M.2 SSD around 128GB and will have to transfer my current C: to that, if that's possible.

Hello finally I got my L440 and made RAM upgrade to 16GB and I also want it to have an SSD. After reading all the manuals and forum messages I think that it have  a sutiable port for an mSATA SDD which will solve my problem in a great way without replacing anything.
 
My question is, my machine didn't come with an mSATA or WWAN option. While making the RAM upgrade I checked the ports and there is only one seems to be suitable for mSATA but since area is too small I couldn't be sure if it is the one. Can you please check the attachment and tell me if any mSATA will fit in that port? Or maybe it is not for mSATA and I should go with the traditional SSD solutions by replacing the disc?
 
Thanks

A:msata SSD for L440?

Hi,
 
According to the Hardware Maintenance Manual, page 70 that slot is for a WWAN card or M.2 SSD.  An mSATA SSD will not fit.
 
From what I read here in the boards, finding a high capacity SSD in the right physical size is  a problem.  There are multiple sizes - IIRC the 42mm version is used in Lenovo laptops.
