Preferred Solution: Lenovo Solution Centre and S440

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.)

When I do a Hardware scan using the Companion all areas go through OKButWhen I use the Solution Centre for Hardware scans it stops at Mathermatical Operations test & goes no further.Question why?

A:Lenovo Companion v Lenovo Solution Centre Hardware Scans

(1)Update your Intel Graphics driver from your support page.(2)Install LSC 3.6.002 from here:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/lenovodiagnosticsolutions/tools/lscoverview This should clear the math error.

Hi Guys, I was wondering if you can direct/instruct me where to get a new Lenovo S440 Replacement Keyboard, in the UKi cannot find it for the life of me. Also are there any other Lenovo laptop models that the lenovo s440 is compatible with? i.e. will the T440 keyboard work with the S440 Thank You Zain 

A:Lenovo S440 Replacement keyboard

Hi Zain, welcome to the forums.
 
I don't know exactly where to ask for a keyboard on the UK, but you should try to find your Lenovo retailer there.
 
It is very usefull to find the part number of the Lenovo s440 keyboard. On the support site of the S440 under "Documentation" you can find the documents for the part numbers.
 
I think it is this one:
https://support.lenovo.com/ec/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-s-series-laptops/thinkpad-s4...
 
That links to this PDF with the part numbers:
https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/s440_fru_bom_20130717.pdf
 
Would it be this one "04X0984 C Cover w/KBD UKE LTN <PRIMARY>"  ?
 
Please validate the part number with your retailer.
 
Regards

Hello, I am new here and I realy hope you can help me! I've have the Lenovo Thinkpad S440 (as in the description). It is the model with SSD, i5 U, Intel integrated graphics, 8GB Ram etc. The display which was build in was the HD+ matt model (1600x900 px) I've had some water in bag back pouring into the screen. I tried to fix it and after I disassembled the screen, I got all the water out of it but the backlight was not working anymore. So I ordered a new display. While I was looking for it, I came to the knwoledge, that you can take a replacement screen from the Lenovo Thinkpad T440s, at least considering that most 1600x900px displays seem to be the same for each of them. So I thought: okay, then I should be able to use the 1080p display for the t440s as well, since it also has a 30 pin eDP connector.So I ordered one and put it in my S440 and it fits perfektly. But now the display only gives a really dim short fliker while booting the machine and nothing is viewable, so the display stays completely black. Is there a possibility to fix it or can I only use the 1600x900 px displays on the s440? As I sayd the screen fits perfect and the 30 pin eDP connector also fits perfekt into the new display. If I use an external display via HDMI, the image is shown normal on this external screen. Also it seems that the new internal screen is not recognised, since in the intel graphics options I cannot chose it as the main screen, only if I go for dual screen it is an option. ... Read more

You may want to visit the Nvidia website and see if you can download the latest driver there.

Apparently there have been some issues with uninstalling/installing Nvidia drivers, This Nvidia forum thread goes into quite a bit of detail. It's a long thread but may help you achieve a good driver install. As always, make a system restore point (or better yet, a system image) just in case.

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,
