Adding M.2 SSD to T440p Need to Know?

Q: Adding M.2 SSD to T440p Need to Know?

Before I buy and install an M.2 card, I wanted to ask just what do I need to know or do before and after the installation. The installation itself is basically simple but I'm not real sure how to set it up or what it can be used for? Do I really need it? I've read several articles about this and found more confusion. Some claim to use it as a boot drive for storing Windows, while others claim it is only good for existing drive cache. I'm wondering if adding the M.2 will even be of any use or improvement to me. Does anyone know anything about this? Please keep it like me, very simple. I'm not even sure which one to get for my T440p. I found this.. will it work fine? Lenovo SK hynix 128GB M.2 2242 PCIe NVMe SSD w/ 2280 Bracket, HFM128GDHTNGI won''t use the included 2280 bracket as it's not for my machine. Some of those terms are kinda foreign to me. Any insights or info is greatly appreciated.

I just picked up a t440p, and I am hoping to do some upgrades on it.  I got a Transcend 512 GB SSD for the M.2 slot.   It installs just fine, and Windows 10 sees the drive.  The only issue is that when the M.2 SSD is installed, there is no wireless adapter in the system.  When I remove the M.2 SSD, the wireless adapters are back. Is it not possible to have both in the system and functional?  I am hoping to make the M.2 SSD the OS drive, and use the other SSD drives (2.5") for storage.

Hi, I've been using my Thinkpad T440p for only few months, When I plug in the charger, battery doesn't charge and doesn't show anything (as if the charger is not plugged in at all). - The charger itself is working.- If i removed the battery and botted the laptop with cahrger plugged in it works.- if the laptop is off and i plugged in the charger the battery will charge.- Whenever I plug in the charger while on battery, the power light blinks but without charging. I've tried to uninstall ACPI Power driver and didn't work, I've tried to update BIOS and it isn't possible as the update require both the battery and charger to be connected which is not possible. Please help

T440p keeps shutting off. Particularly when I start a game. No battery. What I've tried so far:Replace fan/heat sink.Replace i5-4210 with i7-4700mq.Thermal gel properly done.Tried four different brands of RAM.Swapped HDD.Installed MS Office 2013, and .NET framework 4.5 Both run without a hitch. Installed The Sims2, and it kicks off on launch. Same thing with Mass Effect 2. Still kicks off. It will run all day surfing the internet, running office, etc. Any suggestions?

A:T440p shutting off

sounds like overheating.  Can you install something to monitor temperatures, like TPFanControl?
 
Also, it works differently with no battery.  You should get one.
 
Do you have discrete or integrated graphics?  What is the rating of your power supply?

Yes, you can upgrade both. Max RAM is 16GB (2x 8GB), and you could install any CPU from the below list:
 

i5-4210M
i5-4300M
i5-4330M
i7-4600M
i7-4700MQ
i7-4710MQ
i7-4800MQ
i7-4900MQ

I'm only listing few models for the sake of keeping the list short. Basically any Haswell CPU should work.

Hi,I recently purchased a used T440p, more specifically a model 20AW-S0RK03. Unfortuntatly it arrived damaged and, naive as I was, I accepted a small partial refund and figured it wouldn't be too much on an issue to replace it...However, it seems that this part is rather difficult to obtain and furthermore I now realize that the palmrest for the T440p exists with several different internal designs (number/placement of screw holes etc.).If possible I would much prefer not having to disassemble it twice - once to figure out the part number and once again when the part arrives - so if anyone can inform me what part number I need for my specific model (20AW-S0RK03), then that would be a huge help.Any tips on where to buy (if allowed) will also be greatly appreciated. Note that I'm a student, so both cost and delivery time (I'm in Europe) needs to be considered.Thanks in advance. I really hope that someone can assist me with this tiresome situation.Rasmus

Hi Amit,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with slow performance on your ThinkPad T440p.
 

Have you checked disabling Anti-Virus application?
Is the issue persisting in ?Safe Mode??
Run hardware scan from the Lenovo solution center app, and check if it is showing any error in it.

Hope this helps.

So I got myself a T440p and upgraded the i5 to a quad-core i7, also got a new charger (it requires a 135W for quadcore+Nvidia). For some reason it constantly throttles the CPU down when under load to the highest non-turbo multiplier. For example, when running Prime95 with the multiplier maxed out (ThrottleStop) on both the T440p and the T530 I've been using, on the T530 it stably stays on 35 and on the T440p it goes down to 27 while running. 3740QM vs. 4800MQ, both are 2.7-3.7GHz chips, OS is the same (W7Prox64) So far I've tried the following:setting stuff in Windows power management (minimum CPU states to 100%, high performance profile etc.)using ThrottleStop and setting the multiplier to maximumgetting the newest driversenabling everything enable-able in bios.I have no further ideas on how to squeeze the turbo out of it and I just need that, longer rendering means slower work, and that speed decrease adds up to hours and hours after a while when you do work day by day. And anyway I paid for a product they said can do this performance so I think that's enough explaining in itself.I'm feeling I've been missing some really obvious setting to get that speed, where that might be?

Presently I shut my computer down, removed the keyboard and dried everything that I could below the keyboard/"fluid-shield" and squeezed some paper towel below it keys as well. After all that I hooked everything back together and turned the computer on to check for failures and unfortunately one little key wasn't working: my dear little left key. Luckly it wasn't a letter key and I could carry on with my work for up until I had some time to try to resurrect it (which is today). I have to mention that my warrant expired an year ago and I do have some experience working with electronics, so it wouldn't hurt to disassemble the keyboard itself and check for coffee-blockage in the circuitry, which I suspect it is the case because otherwise I'd expect a whole array of keys to go bad all at once. The thing is, after removing the board from the computer I can't remove the plastic back (the one that slides and hides the screws) save for the lateral plastic clamps. Digging the web for a solution didn't... Read more

Hi All, We have recently bough two T440P laptops and two Thinkpad pro docks 90w for staff members. The laptops all have Windows 10 64bit OS installed, and the latest drivers off Lenovo Website . I tested the sound equipment they both works fine.But..Sadly both Laptops cant play sounds once docked.Dock1 - HDMI - Will display the image, recognised in playback devices but no sound comes out the speakers connected to the dock.Dock2 - 3.5MM Jack - Will play sound when directly Plugged into the Laptop BUT not through the dock. I have tried upgrading the Firmware for the Dock no luck... any suggestions? Kind regardsJames Sewell

Hi all, A few days ago, the rectangular plug on my old charger finally separated from the cable, marking the end of an era in laptop power supplies. Having used third-party adapters before with good results, I ordered Elecbrain's 90W slim-tip adapter as a replacement off of Amazon. The new adapter charges my computer, but sometimes (maybe about 1 out of 3 or 4 times) fails to charge effectively ("plugged in, not charging"). I often have to wiggle the computer end of the plug in the port a bit to get it to charge at all; it's also much harder to insert the plug into the computer than any of my previous cables. 1) Has anyone had any negative experiences with the Elecbrain adapter, and 2) in the likely event that I return the Elecbrain adapter, there any difference between these three official Lenovo adapters: 0B46994, 888015012, 4X20E75140? One of them is not labeled as "slim tip" and one of them is for the ThinkCentre instead of the ThinkPad, but the thumbnails all look identical. My machine is a Thinkpad T440P purchased in late 2015, model number 20AN006NUS.

Hi, I have a Thinkpad T440p and trying to install an AC wifi card. Getting the 1802 unauthorized card error. The new card is an Intel 7265NGW. I have read that only Lenovo branded cards are compatible. Anyone know a workaround for this or where I can purchase the correct card? Thanks
