Preferred Solution: X250 - WWAN module

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.)

A: X250 - WWAN module

EM7455 isn't a whitelisted WWAN module for your X250 - it was whitelisted for Skylake's ThinkPad generation devices. There are two dedicated WWAN modules for your device:- FRU: 04W3842, Ericsson N5321 HSPA+ 21Mbps M.2 WWAN.- FRU: 04X6014, Sierra EM7345 LTE/HSPA+ 42Mbps M.2 Card. You must buy a module with correct FRU on label. There are generic modules available on the market, but they won't work with your X250, as BIOS will detect them as unauthorized devices.

Hi everyone, I'm a student and planning to buy the Campus version of the Thinkpad T480s with the Nvidia chip. It doesn't come with a WWAN module, but I'd like to add one. Information on that topic seems sparse and I tried to look for M.2 slot WWAN modules at different online stores. I found a few ones, namely- Huawei ME906S, listed to be compatible with 2016 Thinkpads- Sierra EM7455, listed to be compatible with the *70 series Thinkpads- Fibocom L831-EA (Intel XMM 7160), listed to be compatible with *70 series Thinkpads According to this reddit, at least the Huawei and Sierra ones are incompatible unauthorized for a T480s which, if true, is simply inconvenient, annoying and disappointing. As I mentioned above, buying a Thinkpad with a pre-installed LTE module is not an option because I'd like to have the Nvidia chip and am buying a Lenovo Campus Thinkpad which comes at a reduced price (and in Germany, it's the only way to get one with an Nvidia chip). As the Lenovo configurator and the T480s platform specifications indicate, the Fibocom L830-EB (Intel XMM 7262) and Fibocom L850-GL (Intel XMM 7360) are officially used and should definitely be compatible. However, I can't find them anywhere except pre-configured with a Thinkpad, which is not an option for me. Can anyone please help me with either of the following:- Is the Fibocom L831-EA (Intel XMM 7160) authorized for and compatible with the T480s?- Is there any place where I can get a Fibocom L83...

Hi, I recently purchased Sierra AirPrime EM7345 for my ThinkPad X250 & when opening the chassis to find already installed in the M.2 slot was a SanDisk 16GB SSD Sata card. There was only one slot for either momery card or WWAN card, I choose to install WWAN card but would also need memory card. How to have both at the sometime? Is it possible to add another M.2 slot or will have to use an external SSD M.2? Thanks.

Hello,

I have bought an M700 which came back from a company leasing.
It has neither a webcam nor the WWAN module installed.
I am not missing the webcam but trying to upgrade the WAAN card.

Model No. PPM70E-0QH02DEN

I have got a sim-card holder in the battery bay, so only the mini-pci card should be missing.

Is it possible to upgrade?
How do I access the mini-pci slot?
Which parts do I need? (F3507g card, antenna, wires, screws)

Thanks for help.

A:Installation of F3507g WWAN module to Portege M700 PPM70E

Hi

You mean 3G module?

From my knowledge the 3G module was not installed in all Portege M700
This means that there are different motherboards which provide different hardware specification.

In your case I recommend getting in contact with an local ASP.
The guys would be able to help you and would provide the right parts for an upgrade (if possible)

As far as I know some of M700 have been equipped with an 3g+/HSDPA Broadband with a data transfer rates of up to 3.6 Mbit/s (Module can be upgradeable to 7.2Mbps by firmware)

Hi, I just bought a X250 today. I received it with Windows 7 Pro, and the first thing I did was upgrade it to Windows 10. After an hour of use, I noticed that the battery was draining really fast. I clicked in the battery icon on the system tray and noticed that it says: Battery 1: This battery is not available for useBattery 2: 40% (or whatever) I opened Device Manager and I see two devices listed under the "batteries" section, both of them called "Battery with Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method" (translating from Spanish, which is my system language, so it might not be exactly like this). I guess this means that the system indeed detects that there are two batteries, so it looks like a software problem. I right clicked on both of them and selected "uninstall", and then went to action > look for hardware changes, so that should refresh the driver. After doing that, the "battery 1: this battery is not available" message still appears. I also noticed that there was a power manager application from Lenovo which is not compatible with Windows 10. After upgrading, Windows notified me that this app had been removed and I don't see a W10 equivalent on the support downloads section of the Lenovo website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Pau

A:X250 Battery 1 "is not available for use"

I also tried unplugging the second battery (the removable one). Immediately after unplugging it, the computer shuts down. If I turn it on without the second battery and plugged into the wall outlet, the icon in the lower right corner (system tray) says "no battery found"; however, on device manager I still can see one battery appearing. If I click on "properties" in device manager, it says that the device is working correctly, and there is no sign of any error log or crash report inside the battery properties in device manager.  I tried updating the BIOS and resetting BIOS to defaults, and it makes no difference. I also tried running Ubuntu from a USB stick ("try" option) and it only detects the second battery, not the integrated one.  I guess it must be a hardware problem.

Good morning everyone. I installed on my x250 (using a free WWAN slot) M.2 SSD disk - ADATA Premier SP600 256GB M.2 SSD. First installation: April 2016. The disk worked great. After a "BIG windows10 update" the drive began to freeze and died on August 2016. The drive was replaced with a new one. On March 2017 the problem returned (in the new disk) - again began to freeze and died.From here my question arises - did I make a mistake somewhere? Do dear forumers who did similar installations on their x250 have similar problems? What can I do to prevent the problem on the third drive? During installation I did not mix anything in BIOS etc - just "plug ang play". I would be very grateful for your help.

I've just received a new X250, maxed out, and I'm really unhappy. Within a few minutes of booting it, I was seeing red and blue horizontal lines on the screen. I hoped these would be fixed by updates, but regardless of the driver, they are still there. To add insult to injury, the ports on the left hand side of the laptop do not line up with the casing. The USB port can be used, but the Display Port is seriously rubbing. The VGA connector is unusable. I'd hoped I'd have the laptop a week before I started a new job, and now it looks like I will be a week later. Does anyone know how I best approach Lenovo for a replacement under the Sale of Goods Act? I really don't want it to be repaired - this is a bad machine.

A:Really disappointed in new X250

Sorry to hear about the issues with your new X250. That must be very frustrating. According to Lenovo, returns should be easy providing you do it within 14 days.
 
I appreciate you may not receive the replacement before you start your new job. You might want to ask Lenovo if they have a similarly configured X250 in stock that they could send you instead of waiting for the replacement to come from China.

I recently bought an X250, and immediately upon using it, found that the spacebar is not as responsive as all the older thinkpads I've had in the past. Specifically, when I type I press on the right side of the spacebar to create a space, but my usual amount of force is no longer responded to by the keyboard. If I push harder, it will respond, but that's annoying because it slows down my typing speed. If I press on the middle of the spacebar it works much better, and if I press it with my left thumb it works better, too. Does that mean I'm typing wrong all these years, or did I end up with a bad key?  I have depot service, so would Lenovo address this if I send it in? If I send this in, do I need to remove all the data on the machine? Would they replace the spacebar or the entire keyboard as I saw somewhere? How long would it take? Gotta say that the keyboard is much worse than the X230 that I am coming from. Thanks for any heads up!

My second X250 came in with a 16GB SanDisk SSD in addition to a 500GB HDD. Reading through the forum, a post mentioned that this 16GB SSD is placed in the position of the smart card reader. The mannual says this is a 3rd NGFF adapter. I am wondering if this 16GB SSD can be upgraded with a m.2 2242 32GB SSD module (or other types). I opened the back cover, lifted the internal battery, then lifted the shining metal cover a little and I don't see a memory module and port under it. I have installed Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on to this 16GB SSD; the Ubuntu install runs well except that only 1.5GB space left. I am trying to see if there is a way to replace this 16GB SSD with a larger size module. Using the m.2 port next to the WiFi card is my last resort. I need advice before taking more parts apart. Thank you.

Hello guys I recently bought a second hand X250 with an Intel 240gb SSD installed and I am planning to install also an M.2 SSD to install Linux.I have already installed Linux in another partition in the Intel, but in general I am not a big fan of grub and also I don't like the restriction of maximum 4 primary partitions per disk. I would prefer to keep the Windows drive 100% clean of any Linux staff.So, I'm planning to install my Linux in the M.2 drive (I have already cleaned my system disk of the Linux staff, grub etc) and I was wondering if choosing the boot up device from the bios is going to be an option, without grub or other boot loaders. I just want to leave the Intel as default boot device and when I want to boot up in Linux, I will choose to boot from the M.2 SSD.Will such a setup work in my Thinkpad?As far as the M.2 drive itself, a 120 gb is more than enough and I am planning to go for an ADATA. I have read a lot of negative reviews about the Transcend M.2s and I don't trust "random" manufacturers, like ZTC or KingDian. Is there any better option for me? Thank you very much for your time.

A:Using Sierra EM7445 on X250

I?m still using a previous generation Lenovo laptop, X240. It includes an m.2 slot for WWAN devices. All WWAN devices are currently using USB interface, and none are using PCI-E, so only USB connectors are required to function in laptop?s m.2 slot. USB version in X240 and X250 is 2.0 only. And Sierra Wireless EM7445 supports USB 3.0 already, so even if the device is capable of receiving LTE data very fast, using carrier aggregation, there still can be a real bottleneck in data throughput, because the device will need to fallback to the older USB 2.0 protocol when coupled with a previous generation laptop, like X240 or X250.Also every time I turn my laptop on or wake up it from sleep, I?m getting a Windows notification ?This device can perform faster.

Hi all,  I recently purchased a brand new X250 laptop, I am slightly concerned though that the hinges are not quite up to scratch. I was expecting really tight, rigid hinges, with no play or movement at all. I was under the impression these would be really tight and the only way to open, close, or move the screen would be by holding one hand on the base and the other to adjust the lid.  However, with mine, they do feel very weak and loose. When typing, there is movement of a few milimetres of wobble which I was not quite expecting.  Is there anything I could do to tighthen these hinges myself? I am not comfortable at all to take the laptop apart! I did wonder if wrapping dental floss around the metal part of the hinge would make a difference as it seems that the hinge is not going through completely. One side has the cables, and the other is attached to the base. What would be your suggestions?  It does of course have a warranty with Lenovo - but I am concerned as well as I have read that hinges might not be covered by warranty! There are no cracks at all in the unit whatsoever. No damage, and the problem is always when the laptop is on the desk.  I really appreciate any help and suggestions with this matter.  Many thanks.

I got this X250 (Product Number 20CMOOE5US) last week and it has this weired power issue. When pressed the Power button, it flashed the green light 3 times and nothing happened. Unpluged the AC adapter and removed the external battery; opened the back cover and disconnected the internal battery and the coin battery. Connected AC adapter and pressed the emergency reset button on the back for several seconds; turned off the AC adapter power for a couple of seconds and then turned it on again. Without press the power button, the laptop came back alive with a boot screen message saying the CMOS checksum was bad and time/date need to be set. Pressed F1 key and updated time/date and then F10 key and RETURN. The laptop loaded Windows 10 with no other problem. While it is still powered on, I reconnected the internal battery and the coin battery, put the back cover on and inserted the external battery.

A:Upgrade HD TN to FHD IPS for X250 (Windows 7). Adv...

Hello,
 
I'm not a Lenovo employee, so cannot answer some of your questions exactly, but let me try to answer as a fellow X250 user who went from an HD IPS (1366768) to FHD IPS (19201080) panel about nine hours ago.
 

When the display panel was switched out, the display scaling changed from 100% to 125%.  Plenty of applications handle the new scaling just fine, but some of older ones looked blurry as a result of how fonts are scaled up in them.  Switching to 100% display scaling solved this and the apps now display crisp, if somewhat small, text.
Text is much sharper on the FHD display than the HD display, which is sort of expected given the new screen has nearly twice as many pixels as the old one.  Both screens I had were IPS, though, so I cannot make a direct comparison between TN and IPS.
I would suggest getting the screen installed by a Lenovo authorized service center.  According to this page, the contact information for Lenovo Ireland Sales and Customer Support is+353(01) 6535 568, and hours are from Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm GMT

One thing I've noticed is that the new screen seems a lot brighter than the old one.  Again, not sure how this compares with TN versus IPS screens, but just something to be aware of.

Hi Ace_Rimmer,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
The recovery media which you are having is same MTM (Machine Type Model) of ThinkPad X250 then you can use it. If it is different MTM then it may not go with your model X250.
 
Note: request you to perform recovery media for your Windows 8 OS and then do the required changes for your HDD.
 
Hope this helps.

I have recently acquired an X250 Thinkpad for work. As said work takes me well outside of Wifi areas, I have also acquired a SIM card to use with the built-in EM7345. However, while that worked originally (I inserted the card, it was recognized, I changed the PIN), the laptop no longer recognizes the sim when inserted.The solution suggested in another thread (enable WWAN in BIOS) does not apply to me, as it is enabled.My SIM card works in other devices, however, different SIM cards are also not recognized. Any ideas?I've switched the pre-installed Windows 7 for Windows 10, but the changed of PIN was already in Windows 10, so I doubt it had anything to do with that.

With input from this forum, I went ahead and ordered an X250.  ETA first week of April.  Thank you... (ask me in May if I am still as grateful   ) My plan is to also purchase an Ultra dock and use the screen on the notebook as well as two external displays.  I did some research and understand certain video ports take priority over others, but this should no be an issue. After reading another thread (here) I am concerned this setup may not be as reliable as one would hope.  I realize the thread references an X240 (not an X250), but would like to know if others have a 3 display setup with the X250 and if they enountered any issues? Thanks again.  This group has provided a wealth of information that has essentially kept me in the Lenovo camp.  I currently use a W520 and was pretty close to moving another manufacturer altogether.

A:Any Issues with X250 and Using 3 Monitors?

Hi Technobob,
 
I'm using a ThinkPad X240 daily on a ThankPad Ultra Dock with two 1920x1080 DisplayPort monitors simultaneously with the X240 LCD. Also have an X250 which occasionally gets plugged in to the same dock and all three monitors work, no issues.
 
Hope this helps!

Hi guys, I'm using a X250 for work, for almost a year, nothing to complain, moreover after performing a level 0 swap to linux (Fedora 23) , everithing working (keyboard backlight included, all ports, everithing) no flaws......until..... I nead to catch some signals from a vibrometer and other instruments RS-232, serial 9pins (I'm a mechanical engineer, I really need to do that stuff anyway).I have an old serial/pci express card and I wonder if anyone have done this before, I mean trying to give X250 express card (32mm) capability.  I've browsed into the available docking stations for X250 and there're nothing like serial or express card compliant.   Please help me dodging the plan B (which is a BORING log of a huge dose of hand writen vibration data)Regards,Pedro

A:is it possible to get x250 expresscard capable?

I assume you mean 34mm.  There are USB ExpressCard readers and USB serial ports.  Having said that, I think there is a good chance some may not do what you want.  When you start talking about hardware devices that need serial ports, those are often devices that have their own drivers and legacy communication software.  My experience has been that those drivers usually require that the serial port be configured as Com1, 2, 3 or 4 using the legacy addresses that date back to the 1980's.  Those devices need to have something like a 16550 UART in order to map to the legacy addresses that were used for Com ports on the earliest PCs.  All the USB devices I have seen map to virtual ports that cannot be used for the legacy addresses.  There are cards that have 16550-compatible UARTS but they tend to be harder to find and more expensive.  If you need legacy addresses, I would guess that a USB serial port would have no hope of success.  A USB express card would probably work with a 16550-compatible serial card.  I say that because I use such a card in my W540 for a chip reader and the express card slot in the machine is mounted as a USB device.  If I were looking, I would try something like this:

but I have not tried it and cannot guarantee success.

Hello all, I am looking to get an x250 but I have a question about the screen. Speaking to my boss who has an x240 he experienced quite a lot of ghosting issues with the IPS screen. I was wondering if these issues have been corrected for the model or should I just go with the TN screen and not risk it? I tried contacting Lenovo sales and customer support and got very unhelpful  answers such as "it is a new model therefore it makes sense it will have new parts" and "we can not give part details to customers". They even told me there had not been any reported issues with the x240 screens, when I have found multiple forum posts about people getting their screens repaired it and have seen the ghosting for myself.  Does anyone here have an x250 with an IPS screen and if so have they seen any ghosting issues?

A:x250 screen issues?

I have the FHD IPS display on my X250. I am not really sure what "ghosting" is since I have never experienced it. However, I can say that the screen is very sharp and I'm very happy with the way it displays text, photos, and HD videos.

There is a design problem on  the ThinkPad  x250. Touch the back of the screen when there is an image with many colors on the screen. You will see that the screen is moving. As you open and close the computer's cover, the screen is whitening due to this design error. Especially in the middle. Due to this problem, they changed the screen under warranty.
