Preferred Solution: Red Hat Linux is WARMING my Thinkpad

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.)

HiI'm using the P1 with 64G RAM and Xeon CPU and several virtual machines running concurrently under VMWare WStation. The P1 runs under Win10 workstation and  i would like to possibly have VMare host running under a Linux distro rather than MSWin as it seems more efficient. But searching seems to indicate Lenovo has no Linux certification for P1. Any views on this ? Best

Hi All, I got my P72 with 2x1TB NVMe and 128 GB RAM with Windows 10.  I am wondering if someone has tried to install CentOS 7.6 on P72. I read somewhere about ThunderBolt BIOS corruption so I am reluctant to be the firstone to try it out and brick my machine. Ideally, I would like to have dual boot for Windows and Linux or I can simply take out the Windows NVMe and replace that with a new NVMe and install CentOS 7.6. I need that to run multiple VMs for software demo purposes using CentOS. If there is someone who has successfully installed CentOS 7.6 on P72, please let me know your experience or tips.  Thanks

I am having a whole range of display problems trying to setup dual external monitors using the DisplayPorts on the ThinkPad Workstation Dock model 40A5 with a TP P50 running  Linux.  Most notably, only one DisplayPort works and only in conjunction with the internal ThinkPad monitor; I never see both external monitors in the Display setup utility.  So I can not get the DisplayPort/DisplayPort combination to work.  Also, the VGA/DisplayPort combination does not work.  Just very bizarre behavior.  I am using RHEL 7.2. Has anyone had luck making this combination work?

My computer shut down a couple weeks ago and when I tried to start it back up it froze after about a minute. It got to the windows screen and then hung up. I turn the computer off and try to restart it and it doesn't detect the hard drive. If I let it sit for a couple minutes and let it cool off then it will boot back up detect the hard drive but then freeze after 30 seconds to a minute. I thought it might have been overheating with the heatsinks so I added thermal compound. didn't work. at this point I don't know whether to try the Power supply, hard drive or mother board. Any suggestions please let me know. the computer does not beep on startup by the way.

A:PC freezes after warming up

Sounds like your hard drive may be bugging out. If you can with another PC, burn a copy of UBCD and then start up your victim PC with it. You want to run the latest Seatools hard drive testing tool. If it gives you the option, run both Long & Short Self Tests. If it locks up during this or states failure, then your hard drive most likely kicked the bucket. Otherwise, proceed to run some other tests as followed:

Prime95 (Mersenne Prime Test): Torture Test, Large FFTs or Blend, let run for 9+ hours
Memtest86+ : 7+ passes (or let run overnight)

Hi
For some reason my pc is taking up to an hour to warm up,it will not switch on at all untill at least 30 mins have passed sometimes longer, once going it is fine,is this my power pack or something not as simple as that.Thanks for any help here.

I have just spent some time stripping my pc down,it does not seem to be the power pack ,but the small switch board at the front of my pc seems to point towards the fault if I move the wires around and generally fiddle with it it comes on straight away is it possible to buy these boards seeing as my pc is maybe 4/5 years old.

Not sure why posts asking about installing an OS other than Windows 10 on this device seem to vanish but here goes my attempt for a Linux Specific question. I am unwilling to run Windows 10 because an OS that without any advance notice will uninstall your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those packages is a required driver is unacceptable to me. Due to the aforementioned issues with Windows 10 I am looking to Linux as an alternative for this device. Are there any known Linux Distributions that will fully support the hardware?Does anyone have experience installing Linux and configuring it on this device?What Linux Distribution is most recommended for this device?What additional drivers or software are recommended on Linux to be able to use the hardware to the fullest? Thanks.

So here is the situation.I've got this great piece of hardware bound to a cruddy OS that no sane person should ever trust (an OS that uninstalls your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those software packages is a driver, without any advance notice).  Sane reasonable people should never accept that as business as usual or acceptable.  Thus Windows 10 is unacceptable. Options:Windows 7 Downgrade (legally valid per the Windows 10 Pro license agreement):Issues for Windows 7 Pro install:No MediaNo License to enter even if one had media (none provided even though Windows 7 Downgrade is a supported item for Windows 10)CPU Support requires a hack to remove the FAKE incompatibility check MSFT put into Windows Update and Windows 7 to disallow usage on newer CPUs.  There are guides on how to disable this manually and have Windows 7 with Windows Updates work so not a real issue.  -- Pretty sleazy move on MSFT's part to disable Windows Update for Windows 7 useers running new CPUs on valid legally licensed copies (per MSFT's own agreements) to force Windows 10 usage. Linux:Install issues for Linux:Which Linux brand and version to use?Will all the features be fully supported? Sadly I cannot even begin to work on any of this due to:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Recovery-media-downloa...

I have recently purchased lenovo thinkpad x1 yoga from Germany. I have tried to install different versions of linux ubuntu in dual boot, but none of them seems to work. It boots from the bootable usb and gives the live ubuntu and install ubuntu options but when you enter then it displays a blank screen and nothing happens afterwards. I am facing another issue pretty consistently that the touch screen becomes unresponsive most of the times. When i use the pen it works fine but it does not works with my fingers. Looking forward to some solution as its pretty annoying experiencing such bugs in such an expensive machine. Thanks
