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.)

A: No Windows 10 OEM Key in BIOS (X270)

Install and run Belarc Advisor (https://www.belarc.com/products_belarc_advisor). It creates a report that contains the windows key.

According to 1.24s changelog it fixes a linux fan issue. I am aware of an issue where the fan keeps going at full speed after resume from suspend. This problem still occurs after the 1.24 update on my machine though (Ubuntu 17.04, kernel 4.10.0-38).

A:X270 BiOS update (1.24) fan fix not working?

Also if this is not the place to report such a thing I wouldn't mind being directed to the right one.

Gurus, Here is what I know so far, could use some help understanding if I'm using a hard drive that is no longer supported (brand new laptop and hdd) I have an X270 with PCIe SSDI added an M.2 SSD in the WWAN slot (confirmed with Lenovo support and parts department that this was supported for my configuration) This worked great in BIOS version 1.10, I had it setup with the M.2 SSD as my boot drive with Win10, and the secondary (stock) SSD as my Data/Storage drive. The other day I applied BIOS update version 1.11 for the X270.  The BIOS was applied successfully, and after restart, I get an error:"2102 Detection Error on storage device (M.2 SATA SSD)"   and won't boot into Windows (that's by boot drive) I was able to roll back to BIOS 1.10 and it again recognizes the M.2 SSD driveI applied the latest BIOS version 1.12, and I get the 2102 Detection Error.  Same with v1.11  Is it possible that BIOS 1.11 removes my ability to use M.2 WWAN Slot drives, or just certain ones?It seems like I can't upgrade my BIOS anymore, on a brand new laptop...  Thanks,Mike

Hi Scutu The X270 is an older model PC, but as you're running Windows 8 successfully, it SHOULD upgrade to Windows 10. You can: 1. Image your hard drive, so if Windows 10 causes problems you can return exactly as it was, many weeks after upgrading   or 2. Upgrade to Windows 10. you can revert back to Windows 8 by going to Settings>Update & Security>Recovery. Follow the on screen instructions. There is a 30 day limit to do this.

Details are a long story:1) Have Ultrabook Type 20HN-CTO1WW from 2017.  Purchased Lenovo "USB Portable DVD Burner" model DB65.  Connected it to the right-side (always on, I think) USB 3.0 port, inserted a verified bootable CD, and shutdown/powered up.  Went to normal (internal HD) boot. 2) Turns out it came set up for boot 2nd from USB CD drive AND with function key (lower left) required to engage function (F#) keys.Had fits getting it to boot into into Setup to change the boot sequence:  Had to change function key option to engage F# keys as default because it would not respond to Function-F1.  Eventually this worked, and in the Setup/Boot sequence I moved the USB DVD drive up to #1. 3) Now it does ask for "press any key to boot from CD/DVD," but it does not respond to a key press and still boots from internal HD.  This is true whichever USB port it's plugged into.  Further, it does not engage the temporary startup sequence when the F12 key is pressed as it says in the user guide.  What am I doing wrong? -- JCW2 P.S. -- I did not install any drivers for the DB65, assuming that Windows (or Lenovo) had them built in.  Do I need to?  If so, what's the minimum necessary to make this work?  (I don't want the included DVD-burner software!) -- J.W.

Hello, we are having some issues with changing the TPM from 1.2 to 2.0 for windows 10 installations via a Task Sequence installation. all I'm finding is a way to enable or disable the TPM via WMI. or all the other options need the laptops to already have a suppervisor password configured. I'm wondering if theres a way to simply change the TPM without having to set a suppervisor password.if not if theres a way to do it without any physical intervention on the Laptop.I did find ways to do it if theres already a suppervisor password, but our laptops dont come with one configured by default and everyone has them with windows 7 on them.However the more i read about this the more i see theres no way to add a suppervisor password via any kind of scripts. if anyone could send me in the right direction for this or if they already have this in place, that would help a great deal.thanks in advance !

Hello, I took delivery of my new ThinkPad X270 three days ago. It is a 20HN model, and it has the 512 GB Intel SSD, with Windows 10 Pro. One of the problems I am having with the machine is that it randomly freezes for a few seconds intermittently. I read on the Microsoft forum that one solution to this was to check of Intel Rapid Space Technology was installed. In my device manager, I noticed that Rapid Storage Technology was missing. Instead, only the Microsoft Storae Spaces Controller and Standard NVM Express Controller are visible. Then there are no IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in the device manager, either. I downloaded the driver for Intel RST from the Lenovo web site and installed it, but when I rebooted my systel the storage controllers were still the same Microsoft ones, and the Intel RST was still not showing in the Device Manager. I also re-installed the chipset software, but the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers didn't show up either. This was all on a clean install of Windows 10. I already tried using the native troubleshooter app on Windows 10 as well as running an SFC scan, neither of these fixed the problem. Coud someone advise what I should do to install Intel RST?

I need some advice about the displays for the x270 ? is the HD display on the x270 an IPS? I didn?t find this info here https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-x/ThinkPad-X270/p/20HNCTO1WWENUS0/customize?...! My current x240 with has HD resolution (I can?t tell if it?s IPS or not) model 20ALCTO1WW ? I?m considering replacing it with the x270.I?ve heard good things about the FHD display but I?m concerned that with the FHD panel my font size will be too tiny for my 50+ year old eyes in its native resolution. I?ve heard that scaling the display results in suboptimal rendering/quality of text/fonts. Has anyone looked at both versions of the display? How do they compare? I?ll be using the system for mostly coding/writing and perhaps watching some videos. No Graphics or PS intensive work. Might hook it up to the tv from time to time (not that often) The display on the x240 isn?t the greatest (could be brighter for sure) but it works fine, so I could probably do fine with the same type for the x270 ? or is there something that I ought to consider? Thanks! PS: FWIW, I?m planning to get the i5-7300 model with 16 GB RAM and the 500 GB drive (that I plan to replace with a standard SSD 500 GB or 1TB drive ? hopefully not a problem).

I can't seem to find a power input rating for the X270 I currently have on order. Of course, I know you can use a 65w with one, but it won't improve charge times if the amp input is limited. The store pages don't list the AC adapters output ratings by adapter and the C.S. chat reply was, "I don't have that information available." I know the output on the 45w is [email protected] simply because I already have one for my X240. Anyone with a 65w willing to post the output for me would be greatly appreciated. More appreciated would be anyone that happens to know what the X270's input ratings are so I can determine if charge times could be cut with a 65w. TIA
