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.)

I'm really curious. I recently watched a video in which a guy found, bought, and cleaned up a ThinkPad that was the same model he had years prior and he spoke very highly of it.Then, I come to reddit and find this sub and the love for the machine seems so passionate and it has me really curious. What makes a ThinkPad special? Why do people love them so? Thanks for any replies, I look forward to reading more about this machine.

I have two Dell Inspiron 17R 7720 laptops. My "old" one I bought direct from Dell in 2012, the "new" one, advertised as an "Inspiron 17R 7720 Special Edition",  I bought on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I still have the original paperwork for the old one from when I purchased it from Dell and there is no mention of "Special Edition" in the paperwork. Both are identified only as "Inspiron 7720" on the label on the underside of the computer, and there are no "Special Edition" markings or labeling anywhere on the new computer.
Hardware is pretty much identical, 1TB Samsung ST1000LM024HN HDDs, 8 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000/Nvidia GeForce GT 650M Video/3D graphics, Backlit Keyboard on both. The only hardware differences are the old computer has an Intel Core i7-3610QM processor (specified by me when I ordered the computer) and a 32GB mSATA SSD while the new computer has an Intel Core i5-3210M processor and no mSATA SSD. 
So what makes the "Special Edition" so special? Is there REALLY anything different about "Special Edition" computers, or was that just some sort of marketing hype?

A:What is so special about an Inspiron 17R 7720 "Special Edition"?

The mSATA cache drive was one of the differentiators.  When that system was built, SSDs were appreciably more expensive than they are now.

Just saw the announcement for the new ThinkBook with E-Ink on the cover.  What a wonderful idea!     But with the missing trackpoint and Thinkpad quality, it will have to be a pass for me.   I really enjoy the recent products which incorporate the e-ink screen and I believe the new ThinkBook got it right.     Would love to see a Thinkpad model with this implementation. My dream T or X Thinkpad?3:2 (or 16:10) screenE-Ink Lid\Cover with a possible swivel or twist center hinge.  As a writer and coder, being able to use a thinkpad keyboard with an e-ink screen (when needed) would be a dream.    Attached is my makeshift solution, X301 with a hacked Sony DPT-RP1.

For light use and best value, it can be a used/refurb X series. X is certainly not best value for that use case if new. Lenovo sells quite different models in the US and Europe, I'm asking for advice both regions. Light web and office use. It can be a new machine, too,  but I absolutely need the TrackPoint, so the ThinkPad (Yoga) 11e - which is just sold out, as I see, an update is coming?

I have a problem with my Lenovo Yoga Pro 2, in which I installed a 850GB SSD drive. it fell a few times and still works, but has a lot of issues - AND makes a lot of unwanted noise. The SSD drive was expensive, so I am now looking to get a second-hand Thinkpad X1 Carbon where I can at least  still install this big SSD drive. So can somebody please tell me what the last Thinkpad X1 Carbon was that had an mSATA-SSD? Thanks much...

A:Which Thinkpads X1 Carbon have mSATA-SSD's?

I think the answer is "1st sort-of".  1st gen used a special drive that was a non standard pin arrangement, but it was mSATA.  The drive will only work in that model.  They tend to be smaller and more expensive than normal mSATA drives.   2nd and later are M2.  All are 80mm long.

This is really getting very annoying. After almost every microsoft patchday, several different lenovo thinkpad wont boot anymore. they are stuck forever at the black screen with the little dots spinning in circle.after turning off and on again for 2 or 3 times you get the blue troubleshooting screen where i press 4 for safe mode. then i see that windows is reverting back updates and restarts but this is still not enough. another 2 or 3 times turn of and on again required to get into the safe mode again. its required to uninstall the latest installed update and then the devices also reboot into normal mode again.this must be a thinkpad issue because it never happens on workstation and only on thinkpad laptops.anyone else have that problem? what can i do to avoid this annoying problem?

l am still using the T400 and l will now be switching to a newer model. Things have changed a great deal since the T400 and although l have used google extensively with a view to finding the answers to my questions, there are certain issues concerning which l still remain in the dark.  One of these issues is the track- or touchpad on the models after the T400: What l have seen on the youtube videos about the models T410, T420, and T430 is that the whole track- or touchpad itself is capable of being pressed downwards, which suggests that whole track- or touchpad serves as a button. Could someone please confirm that this is indeed the case? And what does the press function with the whole track-/touchpad on T410, T420, and T430 accomplish? These questions probably come across as very noobish, but these matters are very important for me as l use computers as reading and writing devices only. Ergonomic factors are all-decisive in my case. l look forward to your feedback.

When I first powered on my new T580, I wanted to prevent boot and enter the boot menu. However, I am pretty certain that the Lenovo logo and the 'To interrupt normal startup, press Enter' message did not appear that first time powering on the machine. Windows's *Cortana* started blathering at me pretty much immediately which disappointed me immensely. I had to hold the power button down until the machine powered off, after which the normal startup happened and I was able to back up the machine. However, due to the above, my backup isn't pristine.Are they shipped hybernated, or was I just not quick enough ?

Hi all, The first one I wanted to discuss is one I replaced the motherboard. After replacing the motherboard everything went OK and was working. Later I decided to replace the cracked lower case. Reassembly went well and when I started the system back up I got the message "cannot boot from any device". I first changed the boot order to CD/DVD which did not fix the problem. I went to the default settings and changed the hard drive to "compatability" with no change. Next I low level formatted the hard drive to try and get a clean OS to installed. Still this compute will not recognize any of the drives.  This is where the second T510 gets involved. The next step was to take the hard drive out of another identical model T510 and install it into the problematic T510. The same thing happened with the message "cannot boot from any device".  Now getting to the second T510. After swapping drives unsuccessfully solving my problem I swapped back the hard drive into the second T510 and now it starts Windows 10 up to the Windows splash screen then freezes up for several minutes THEN the lapptop reboots to repeat this whole process.  I would think this would be solved with something in the bios setting but at this point I'm only guessing. Does anyone out there know of these kinds of problems and the solutions? This is a new one on me. Thank you ahead of time for your time and concerns. JMc

I'll start with the second one first.  Run a memory test.  If memory is good,, look in the event log for the error at crash time.
 
On the first one, I would look for a problem with the assembly.  Make sure nothing is shorted.  Remove all unnecessary parts, like wireless and HDD.  See if it will boot from the DVD

Hi It would seem that the T470s at least (I suspect others too) are susceptible to the so-called HP keylogger vulnerability i.e CVE-2017-17556 via the Synaptics driver. More info is at https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-17556 (and the links provided). The specific file in question is synTP.sys containing the string 'UIscancode' It is being described as an HP specific vulnerability but from what I can see affects any machine with the Synaptics driver that supports debugging as mine does. There is plenty of reactive support from HP on this and wondering what Lenovo plan to do to provide patches as Ive not seen anything yet.  thanks

So, I'm coming from a T500 which I've had for many years and loving it, but even upgraded to the max the specs have become too outdated and I just bought myself a P50 to step it up, which I received two days ago. And I am so disappointed, not with the specs but with the usability of it. I know this might sound like a rant but I really want to hear if you experienced the same and if you learned to cope with the newer Thinkpads and maybe even start to like it after a while.My main issues are:* The display: my old T500 display was so smooth and I could work hours and hours in front of it and not go tired in the eyes. But with this new P50 display, the eye strain is really terrible and even when taking regular breaks I suffer from headaches and nausea after a couple days usage. Not sure if this will go away after getting used to it.* The dreaded numpad, which offsets the normal keyboard from the center: So I moved all my applications to the far left side of the screen to be positioned in the center of me. So effectivly I can only use about 3/4 of the working area. But another consequence is that there is too little space on the left to rest my palm on, and it wants to slide of the edge all the time.* The touch pad: I like to vary between using the track point and the touch pad, depending on what I do, so I want to keep it enabled. But the trouble is that it's simply to large, so when I'm typing the palms tend to touch the pad, causing the mouse cursor to jitter all over the place... Read more

I have had several T4XX notebooks, and all their volume levels through the headphone jacks have been very similar UNTIL my T480.  The only difference is that I usually get the "S" series.  However, on my T480, the volume is about half it has been on my other notebooks, even a Dell and a Yoga that I have had. I usually listen to my shows around "30" on the volume control.  However, on this T480 I have to listen around 70.  I have used several different headsets, uninstalled the driver, manually installed the driver from the Lenovo site, and they all have the exact same result.  The quality of audio is just fine, and the volume control does work just fine, going from 0-100.  But the amplification is about half of every other notebook I have had.  Anyone else have that issue?  The only problem is that I DJ, so the audio coming out from the jack is now much lower than usual, so when I'm having to really crank up my amps to match it, I'm coming close to maxing them out because the audio from the computer isn't quite loud enough.  I could always switch to a USB audio device or bluetooth, but that's an extra point of failure I would rather not have.  Thoughts?  Suggestions?  Anyone else experiencing the same issue?  Thank you for any help!

I purchased a Yoga C940-14IIL. It has 2 TB3 ports on the left side. I'm wondering if Yoga's are also affected by the same thunderbolt firmware issue affecting so many thinkpads. So many thinkpads models have a critical thunderbolt firmware, where an older firmware wore out an SPI-ROM chip. The yoga board here doesn't have the same awareness thread that the Thinkpad boards have. So hopefully Yoga's are immune from that particular thunderbolt issue. I've had my C940 for a few days only and have found the ethernet port of the Lenovo USB-C travel hub is not working well. It often negotiates only 100Mb and goes to disabled state after a few minutes loosing ethernet completely. I have to buy another dongle to test this out. I've had other weird issues too, like the bluetooth radio just konk out requiring a reboot.

Kind of ranting right now because I'm quite frustrated with my situation right now.To start off, I need a new laptop. Originally purchased a C940, had it exchanged twice before just returning it for good. Purchased a X1C6 on 10/31, received it 11/5.The day I got it, I had a bunch of issues with the trackpad driver, probably spent ~3-4 hours troubleshooting the issue by myself before finally fixing it after one last ditch attempt restore.Come to today, I had it hooked up to my external display, entire thing freezes. Restart the computer, HDMI port doesn't work anymore. Sat on the phone with support for a hour while troubleshooting the issue with them after I had self troubleshooted, and basically got told it needs to be fixed or replaced.I guess I'm frustrated that I'm running into so many problems with Lenovo's laptops and need reassurance that the trouble I'm running into will be worth it in the long run. I just need a laptop that works without me fiddling with it for 4-5 hours every time I get it.

I just bought the ThinkPad Yoga. Overall it is amazing. I love it. It has only a couple quirks that I think will fix themselves at some point with software (hopefully, like the need to calibrate the Stylus accuracy, especially around the edges). But one thing I was dissapointed about is that the capslock key does not have an LED indicator light! The mute key, Fn key, and microphone keys all have lights, but not capslock! Why would anyone make such a decision!?!?! Of all indicators, the capslock LED indicator would probably be the most important, followed next by the Fn lock indicator. Please, in the future Lenovo, don't exclude the capslock indicator, especially because you don't know if your customers are going to install some other OS that doesn't have the software to show an indicator symbol on the screen. Don't just be the best PC brand, be the *very best* PC brand possible. Thanks.

A:Why no indicator LED light for the capslock key on new ThinkPads, Lenovo?

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Thanks for your feedback regarding ThinkPad yoga and I appreciate the thoughts shared.
 
While I think Lenovo still has an amazing build quality and the machines are tank-like in durability, people make comparisons within the same series. Many people have favorite features or design elements on a particular model, and because they value that, the design directions for new models may be seen as better or worse. I too support your suggestion regarding the caps lock indication which would be really great. Hopefully, our engineers will take the suggestions to concern while designing upcoming machines.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.
