T580 keyboard - change to back lit?

Q: T580 keyboard - change to back lit?

Hi, just got the T580 but kicking myself that I did not get the back lit keyboard. What do you guys think - does it make much difference? Is it the same feel as the normal keyboard? Is it possible to swap out? If so where is the best place to get the part? Thanks.

This is a stupid but frustrating problem! I have a Gateway Millenium keyboard. Up until a few days ago, all was well, but suddenly, the decimal point key in the number pad is remapped to run the function "default email application" (like the hotkey button at the top of the keyboard. I rely on this numpad a lot, so I really need to remap this. I'm guessing there is a layout in the registry??

What I've tried...
Using the Millenium keyboard function mapping (only allows you to remap the special keys at the top)
Uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard (no new driver available)

Any help????

I have a DELL Insprion 2400 with Windows XP Office Edition insalled (I know its so old lol). So I was fooling around, trying to make the Japanese carhters show on my computer and messed around and changed the keyboard layout to Japanese from English. I restarted the computer when I tired to enter my password on the Welcome logon screen it wouldn't accept it. I don't have the windows software CD to try to do a system restore and I'm not sure if you can even do a system rstore if you can't logon. I've tried just about everything that I could think of and nothing has worked. At this point I dont care if I losse everything on the computer I just need it to work. Could someone please help me or at least point me in the right direction to get this issue solved. How can I fix this???

Trying to set up a FP monitor, and in the process I tried changing the bios setting from onboard AGP (flat panel wasn't working with this, had to add another video adapter card) to PCI, thinking I could change it back if ineffective. But now my display on the monitor that WAS working is black, so I can't undo my mistake.

How to undo damage??
Thanks.
 

A:bios change, now can't view monitor to change back

If you remove the battery on the mothernoard
for a minute or two, the BIOS loses it's
current settings and goes back to the defaults
that will work on any system. You'll have to
let it auto-detect hard drives and everything.

Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop.

The laptop does not come with a backlit keyboard and I was curious if there is a way that I could purchase a ugraded backlit keyboard and install it I know some models have the backlight connector under the keyboard but they just do not come with them installed? If so what model keyboard should I purchase and would the laptop follow the HP pavilion 15 series disassembly steps?

Hi, It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable. Regards.

Setting the battery plan doesn?t have an effect. Coming from a reddit post, ist was suggested, that I should ask @someotherguy if a solution he proposed for other models, also works for T580.

Hello, sorry for posting these basic questions but I've done some research and I want to make sure that I make the right decision when buying a new T580. I've been out of the loop in tech for a few years now, and I'm just learning now about hardware BIOS whitelists, etc. I want to buy the most basic T580 model and make sure I can upgrade certain components later on when I have the money available to do so.  1) Can I upgrade the basic model with the i5-8250u / 4GB RAM to 16GB of RAM later on? PSREF says yes, up to 32GB, and I've watched videos that say there are two slots for RAM available. Just want to make sure there is not any limitation and that I can upgrade later on to at least 16GB. 2)I already have a Samsung SSD - SATA III 2.5 inch. Since this model has a 2.5 drive I assume I can replace it with mine. But am I limiting myself in anyway for future updates if I don't get one of the NVME drives now? 3) I would possibly like to get the WWAN card later on. Is it possible to buy and add one later on?  4) Will this computer run dual 4k external monitors, should I ever get them?  Since money is very tight, my only priority right now would be to get the stuff I cannot add later on (3840 x 2160 screen, possibly graphics card but would have to bump up to 8350u).  Thanks!

Please advise if Lenovo can deliver T580 with preinstalled Windows 7 Professional as out of box delivery so save several tinkering hours at user's garage. It had been tremendous performance issues with T570 with Windows 10 resource hog experience. I would not prefer to run Windows 10 again on T580 - high performance machine hogged by Windows 10. If Lenovo could pre-install downgrade option out of the box that would save several hours of research by end users, T580 with Windows 7 would perform more stable and solid provided if they have enabled all the drivers to function properly.  This has been hugely frustrating experiencing to deal with T570 machine running Windows-10 Pro, I had to dump the machine. I dont have much confidence to run T580 on windows 10 pro, it would not even match T520 machine ( 7 years old machine) running on Windows -10. Looking forward for the solution, request Lenovo team to enable Downgrade option as part of the customization to save users's time and stable user experience. If Lenovo Does not deliver out of the box, first thing to do after the machine is to wipe out Windows 10 to install, Please let us know if the drivers available or I would be placing a ticket to go through 100 steps to get it done.  Thank you,Mamba.

I'm not familiar with this type of router but it seams like you need to do a factory reset. Then return you router to your normal settings afterwards.
You can probably do this by getting a pin and poking it in the hole on the back of your router near the 'Reset to Factory Settings' text (or something to that extent).

Hi,I have a brand new thinkpad T580.When I am playing audio, I get a random crackle or popping sound. This gets progressively worse the longer I listen. Stopping and restarting the audio seems to resolve the issue temporarily, but after about 10 mins its back.This issue also seems to be worse while charging or if the CPU load is high.Possibly related is the fact that my fan seems to be spinning faster than it should. Im running an SSD so shouldnt be producing too much heat but its always noticable. Assuming it was the media player, I have tried a veriety of players including just playing windows sounds so its not the software.The sound is the same if i use speakers or headphones or laptop speaker,I also have done full driver updates and bios update to latest version.Thanks,

Hey folks,I just purchased a T580 from Lenovo.com this month. I received it and upon opening immediately noticed a continuous sharp edge all along the three sides of the keyboard/computer part of the laptop. The screen is fine, this is only along the edges of the base portion, and not including the back edge where the screen hinges.  The textured surface on top of the base seems to have a sharp, possibly unfinished edge. I have spoken with the support line and haven?t gotten far.  I would like to compare my laptop to a T580 in store but cannot find one.   Its hard to photograph but I think I?ve captured it here just above the fan openings. If you zoom you can see the light from what I call a sharp edge. The fact that there is a change in angle at all in thus location leads me to believe it is a production oversight. I do believe I could whip this unit into shape with an emory board, but why settle for a less than excellent product.  So my question to the forums is, can anyone attest to this being the normal fit and finish for these T580?s?  Is this a problem or is this the expectation. Has anyone else experienced this issue?Zoom to the center of the picture and you can see the sharp edge along the bottom edge of the top piece of material

T580 (fresh from factory).  Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 driver (12/27/2017 - 23.20.16.4905).  Intel Core i7 vPro 8th Gen.  Windows 10 64 bit (freshly updated).  Lenovo Vantage system update freshly updated.  (today's date: 4/28/2018) LG display plugged into HDMI port on Thunderbolt adapter which is plugged into the USB-C port on left side.HP display plugged into HDMI port on right side. Either display is detected just fine if I unplug the other one; but when both are present, it only detects one of them. This exact configuration was working fine on my T470, Intel Core i5, vPro, 7th Gen. So, bigger and better (and more $$) is worse. My bet would be on a driver issue.  (Windows won't let me install the Intel April 2018 driver - it says probably because the manufacturer did custom driver coding.)

A:T580 Won't detect a second external monitor

UPDATE: Well, ok, it DOES appear to TRY to "detect" the display when I first plug it in.  But it has no properties (e.g., Resolution) and the #3 icon on the layout panel soon disappears and clicking the Detect button won't bring it back (unless I unplug my other monitor - then it detects fine and works fine).

Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum as I just bought a nice T580 with i7 8550U Intel CPU. So far the machine is amazing, it's my first Lenovo (I'm coming from a MS Surface Pro 3) and I'm happy with it, except for one thing: When AC is plugged on, the CPU clock always goes to max speed (3.8-4.0GHz), even if the load is at 0%. That means that the laptot heats more and the fan kicks in very fast if you start to do something, even if it's only web browsing. That's really annoying.Everything goes back to normal if I unplug AC and work on battery. The CPU immediately lowers the clock, as you can see on my screens. Here are all the tricks I already tried: - Changing power modes by clicking on the battery icon on the desktop. This doesn't do anything when AC is plugged. But this works perfectly if I unplug it.- Resetting the BIOS. No changes.- Changing BIOS AC power settings with the same values as for battery power settings. No changes on Windows 10, still at 100% clock speed.- Restoring Windows 10. 2 times. Still no changes. I even used the Lenovo recovery tool to factory reset it. It's not a software problem as this happens already after the very first startup of Windows 10.- Downgrade the BIOS to rev. 1.06. No changes. I'm currently using the latest 1.09. I don't know what to do now. I asked some people on Reddit and they don't seem to have the problem. I run out of ideas. Could you help me? Thank's in advance for all your answers!Florian... Read more

I'm hoping that my earlier thread has been ignored because I've been replying to it. So I'm starting a new one in hopes of catching someone's attention that knows more about IMAP/POP than I do.
 
I recently got a new laptop with Office 2013 and Outlook 2013 was set up with IMAP(is that the default?).  I think this is my issue.  My issue is that emails are being deleted at random from my trash folder. I think it might have been because, unbeknownst to me until this issue with Outlook 2013, message deletion was set up for possibly one day (I've since changed that to the max of 30 days) via my ISP (Comcast) on the web.  Sometimes I need to go back to a deleted email and that's why I like to delete them individually at a later time.
 
Here is my original thread in case it's needed:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/588318/help-with-outlook-2013-and-trash-folder-deleting-emails-on-its-own/
 
I replied to a similar thread hoping someone would see that but so far, no reply.

Thank you, thank you for any help.  I need a bit more of an education of IMAP vs. POP obviously.....I guess this is one way to get it.

Yep, system restore would have saved your bacon if you had created a restore point before doing that.

You might see if starting over using the tutorial below may be able to help you fix your user account by changing everything back to what it was originally.User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name
If not, then you might see if you may be able to create a new administrator account to use instead, and copy what you want from the old account.

I wanted to set the screen display to make the text larger. Ended up in the DPI scaling screen. Set it to custom size 144 dpi or 150 percent of normal. Which gives me a nice size font on desktop, control panel and most web pages.

Only problem is some screens do not show the entire screen ie on doing some software installs the accept icon does not show on the bottom and I cannot get the screen to scroll down to click on accept.

Same deal now on control panel when I go to the DPI scaling to set the DPI back to normal or even set the custom DPI back to say 90 I can make the change on the screen but cannot get the screen to scroll down so I can click on apply icon to make the change on next boot.

Any help appreciated. Is there anyway I can just get the monitor to go back to basis settings before I started messing around with DPI stuff ?
 

A:changed DPI and now cannot change it back

Duh, I fixed the problem by restoring to a earlier version of vista. Should have thought a bit more before posting.

Is there a way to change the default location to send data when doing a back-up? When I try to do a back-up on XP the default location is the floppy drive. Can I change it so I can burn a cd instead?

A:Change back up from floppy to cd

Welcome to TSF!

Depends on what backup program you are using. Windows backup can't burn to CD. If you use the Wizard, the location will always default to the Floppy drive if you have one. The list is alphabetical.

If you set it to use the Advanced mode, the location should be the last one used.

I have an hp touchsmart tx2 laptop with an ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics card. I recently reformatted and reinstalled vista. Since the reformat, however, the resolution has not been the same. I'm not entirely positive that my resolution was 1280x960, but I think it was. I am absolutely sure that it was a 4x3 ratio, and anything less than 1280 seems horribly fuzzy and large. But the highest resolution I can reach now is 1280x800. I've tried getting the most recent drivers from ATI and every windows update. Nothing seems to help. I've also noticed that if I go into the options in ATI's Catalyst Control Center, changing the scaling options from "full screen" to "preserve aspect ratio" doesn't do anything. The screen flickers for a few seconds, but doesn't change at all. Does anybody know of a way to get my resolution back to 1280x960? Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
