Q: MY warranty on X240

Dear All, i have Lenovo X240 which I bought from France two years ago. It's serial number is PF00YEU9. Currently i am in the UAE on an international assignment. I took my laptop to local service dealer for screen replacement for dead pixels but he refused to take the laptop, saying he was.not sure whether the laptop covered under international warranty or not. He asked to to talk to Lenovo customer service at 800035702810, and if they agree, I've to show an email evidence to local dealer that it is covered under international warranty. I tried on this number but it's not responding. I tried to find customer support email but it's not available on lenovo's website. Only one month warranty is left on my laptop and I am not going to visit France in next couple of months. Please advise what to do? regards

I bought a Lenov Ideapad 510 15IKB on 14th April 2017. Now I'm facing 2 issues with the warranty registration and warranty upgrade: Issue#1On April 16th I registered the base warranty of my product as it should start from the purchase date of my product. After few email conversations for purchase proof, finally on 3rd May, I received email confirming the base warranty registration of my product. It was starting from 14th April 2017 and ending on 13th April 2018. I checked the same on lenovo website. But few days back when I again checked the warranty status, it was restored to factory warranty (15 Oct 2016 - 13 nov 2017). I don't know why this happened and how this happened. When I contacted lenovo, they said that warranty is updated in their database but how can I beleive when I can't see this on warranty lookup section of the Lenovo official website. I have also attached the screen shot of warranty lookup page as of today (22 June 2017). Issue#2I registered for 2 year warranty extension under Back To School offer (Ticket Number - ADP-BTS-025399) on www.buyalenovo.com and made a payment of INR 999/- on 6th May 2017. On 10th May, i received an email confirming the receipt of payment and in the same email, it was mentioned that warranty certificate will be mailed to me within 7 bussiness day, but till the date I've not received any warranty certificate, I've sent so many emails in last one week, but I didn't receive any reply to any email.

My brother got a X240 with a regular 1TB HDD, and I'm looking to help him with upgrading to an internal SSD for the OS/Apps. I first thought it just used a regular mSATA, but it apparently uses a new style called M.2.
 
Unfortunately I can't seem to find any info on what's supported, how large can they be, etc...
 
My local computer store has this for M.2 in 512gb size, would this fit in the X240?

A:X240 M.2 SSD

Howdy HiVolt,
 
I don't think that one will fit.  There are several different lengths of m.2 SSDs and the one in the X240 is 42mm.  The one you linked is longer than that.
 
Up until recently the highest capacity 42mm part was 128GB IIRC, but I think someone has come out with a 256GB 42mm unit.  [edit] I'm not able to verify that just now.  [more edit] Yes I am.  See post below.
 
Here's their compatibility list.  Please note I have no personal experience with this company.

A:Old drivers for X240

Hello and welcome,
 
I don't have a direct answer but there may be a way to finesse this.
 
Just did some poking around in the Win 7 wifi drivers.  Using the 64-bit Win 7 Intel driver,  I copied the link to the latest and replaced the "version" part of the link with an older version extracted from the readme.
 
I was able to download nz0wh0w 2016/05/10 by modifying the link to the latest version.
 
Does that or similar get you what you need?

However now it won?t turn on at all, except the lights over the F1 key, F4 key, and Fn are on. It wasn?t plugged in, but this has never happened before. I?ve also taken out the battery in a myriad of different methods people have suggested online but there?s been no mention of the lights still on.  If if I could get some help, that?d be great.

Hello, In short, fn key does not work in lenovo x240 with latest bios update (2.35). I can swap fn and ctrl keys, and then function keys works via the ctrl key, but the fn key does not work as ctrl. I think this problem is OS independent (tried w10, w7, ubuntu). I have tried installing older bios for this model from the following page:https://support.lenovo.com/es/en/olddownloads/ds035950 But I can only install a few of the newest ones, as the older ones report that they are not compatibles with my system (though the readme says w7-w10 compatibility). No luck with any of the ones I could install. I also tried the hotkey features integration from here, no luck either:http://support.lenovo.com/es/en/downloads/ds029026  This question has been answered a gazillion times, but ill do it one more time as there is no solution posted anywhere.

I recently purchased a refurbished x240 - I am having 2 issues, which I would welcome help with: 1. the areas with buttons on the top and bottom of the track pad also move the cursor - this often causes an inaccuracy, with the cursor moving slightly before or after pressing one of these buttons - is there anything which can do done about this, or is it a design fault? 2. my computer arrived with no internal battery, just a 6-cell external battery - the seller claims that the internal battery only functions if the external battery is a 3-cell, and that there is therefore no point in me purchasing an internal battery - can this be verified? Thanks for your help!

Now the hinges/cover that were removed to replace the screen are failing. (I also noticed that the cover clips were significantly damaged during the repair when it popped off) Do I have any options here to get this repaired?

Hi My X240 needs 17s until the first message appears on the screen.Usually this takes about 2s (no matter whether Quick Boot is on or off).Everything else works fine. By searching for similar problems I found about a dozen threads covering the same topic (for other models), but no solution. The laptop has the newest BIOS (2.40). Unfortunately I can not test any downgrade, because of security reasons. I tried to force a downgrade by extracting the BIOS files and by using a generic flash tool, but I did not succeed. If someone knows how to do that, please let me know. Resetting the BIOS did not help.In the last few days I tried almost every combination of BIOS settings, but no success. I should mention, that the Intel AMT has been configured to be permanently off. I should also mention, that for testing purposes I'm using a minimalistic setup: the naked mainboard just with the CPU cooler, a DRAM module, and a SSD is hooked onto a docking station. Any help greatly appreciated. regardsEdmund

My Thinkpad X240 only comes with an external battery pack, no internal.  I usually power down my laptop at the end of the day.  The following day it won't power on.  I have to remove and re-insert back the battery pack before it turns on. If I power down and leave the laptop for 2hrs it will power up without me having to remove and re-insert back the battery pack.  But if I leave the laptop powered down for more than 3hrs I have to do the process to turn it back on. The battery charges normally, I usually get 4hrs out of the 6 cell pack. I ran the Lenovo Solution Center Comprehensive Tests, no errors found.  I also did the rest button but it won't power on without going thru the process of battery removal.

Hi folks, I have an X240 that just ran out of warranty. I was having some intermittent hard drive troubles so I sent it in before the end of the warranty, and it came back with a new hard drive. Unfortunately, it no longer recognises my external batteries - I have two, both genuine Lenovo, one 68 and one 68+. Lenovo won't fix it as they say it's related to the battery latch being broken, but the battery latch has been broken for a whole year and the batteries always worked just fine. When I first got the computer back the batteires weren't showing up in Windows power manager, but I could see them in Lenovo Settings where they were showing as "good" condition. The 68+ had 5% charge and the 68 had about 80% charge.  I did a heap of Windows updates etc. which didn't fix it, then tried to "reset" the 68+ through Lenovo Settings, after which it stopped showing up there at all. I now get a message about a battery error when I boot to Windows. I haven't put the 68 back in for while, though I guess I could to see if it still shows up. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas why the computer might have suddenly stopped recognising the batteries, and anything I can try to try to get my battery life back (going from about 10 hours to about 1 hour makes the computer kind of useless for what I use it for). As I said, I'd be very surprised if it was to do with the latch, as that's been the same for ages. Thanks in advance

I will move the mouse (both the external and the built in), touch the keys, and even push the power button and it will not wake up. The power button light remains solid. The only way I have figured out how to wake it up is if I plug in a VGA cable that is connected to an external monitor or projector.Does anyone know how to fix this?

A:X250 Trackpad in an X240?

Hello XThinkpadUser, I am very sorry, but I advice You to forget this idea. There are most likely going to be some imcopatibilities in BIOS, and if not so, then some differences with the shape of the keyboard / trackpad connector. Plus you would need to replace the whole keyboard bezel. My opinion is based on the same glitch with old X200 and X201 - many people asked if X200 can be backwards upgraded with touchpad - it can be definitely not (afaik). Nobody can mark your question as impossible until first X250's arrive, but in your case I would hurry selling your X240 unit. Sooner you do it, you will get more paid for it... (believe me, you have my best sympathy, but I am in much more huge trap - what shall I my X220 change for?? :-) ) Regards,skrble

I put it to sleep, I came back home, I opened the lid and the screen didn't light up.The screen itself works perfectly (if you put a light on it you can see what's displayed), and there's no other problem.This doesn't seem to be a software problem since I doesn't work in the BIOS, nor in Windows or Linux.. Why does the backlight would suddenly stop working ? Thanks in advance,

A:Thinkpad X240 no backlight

Same here. The backlight is out in the bios as well so I believe mine is a hardware problem. For other thinkpads, I find people saying this is a surface mount fuse on the motherboard and can be "fixed" by bridging the fuse with solder. But I can't find a fuse near the display port that is bad. The most likely fuse I find is F2 on the backside of the board near the display port, but it doesn't measure as an option circuit so I don't think that one is bad. I will probably buy another broken laptop and swap parts.

Hi everybody, yesterday my X240 didn't wake up from sleep properly (LED backlight went on, nothing else happened), so I tried to restart it. When I hit the power button, the following happens:The power button LED and the Fn key LED light up and stay on.The red F1 and F4 LEDs briefly light up, as well as the keyboard backlight, but those go out after less than a second.I can hear some faint noise, the fan probably.Screen stays dark, no backlight. Connecting an external monitor does not help. I have tried to remove the power supply and external battery, pressed the Power button for 30 seconds, hit the emergency reset button, no results. Any ideas?
