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.)

[OS: Windows 10] Is there an application to use for sending/receiving SMS messages with the Sierra EM7455 Wireless WAN card? What I am looking for isn't one of those bulk sending applications that connects to some server ove Internet. What I want is to send and receive SMS messages just like the way I can do so on my phone. I am really hoping someone knows of such an app, because all googling efforts turned out to be useless.

Hi there, after heaps of tries I have managed to get the Sierra Wireless working in Linux Mint 18.2, the only problem, it automatically goes back to unavailable after suspending or disabling and then re-enabling it. The only way to get it to work again is to restart the lap in Win10 and then again into Linux again. Any workaround? This is being a massive pain!

I recently installed an EM7455 LTE modem (FRU 00JT542) and antenna kit (FRU 01AW958) in my X1 Yoga running Windows 10 Pro.Drivers installed fine and I have nothing unidentified in Device Manager, and "Cellular" exists in the networking panel (when you click on the network icon in the taskbar).However, none of my SIM cards are being detected by the system. I've tried T-Mobile and Verizon SIM cards (both verified working in other devices) to no avail -- Windows keeps telling me to insert a SIM.I spent all afternoon on the phone with half a dozen Lenovo support reps (and have a ticket open with them) but we haven't made any headway yet. Here are some things we tried:Different Windows 10 installations (the original image on the supplied SSD vs. the one I created and have been using on my 950 Pro): no effectThe Windows 7 Mobile Broadband Activation tool: errorVarious Gobi 5000 Drivers: no effectUpdating UEFI: no effectWindows Troubleshooting: uselessI'm beginning to think it may be a hardware issue with the SIM slot but the reps haven't been willing to admit as much. In addition, I only have the depot warranty which I've heard atrocious things about, so I'd like to avoid that. I was also informed that they don't allow self-replacement of system boards so worst case I'll have to shell out for an onsite warranty.I'll take any suggestions -- even if they're shots in the dark!

Hi I resently got a Thinkpad x1 yoga gen 2Type 20JE-S1C600S/N R9-0NGFRQ 17/05 As far as I know there should be a Sierra Wireless EM7455 modem in the machine, but i can't get windows to detect it. I doesn't show up in device manager, or in the network setting of windows. It is running Windows 10 Home. 64bit. In bios I can enable or disable WWAN (under security > IO ..), not sure if that means there is a modem, or just a setting thats always there in the bios.There is a slot in the back of the machine for a SIM card, but not sure if that means there is a moden in the machine, or the slot is always there.  I Tried reinstalling the machine, but didn't help.I've made sure there is no pending updates for the machine.   1. Can you guys help confirm if there is a modem in the machine. (If not, then the seller lied to me)2. If there is, how do I get it working ? I did put a SIM card in the SIM slot in the back of the macine. I'm pretty sure it is currectly inserted. There is only one direction where I hear a small click, and the card stays in place.  Thanks Simon

We have a lot of X1 gen 3 tablets with this card in it. It is an intermittent, but somewhat frequent issue that the card stops showing under connections and you go to device manager and it has the yellow exclmation point in there. The error is: "This device cannot start. (code 10)  {Device Timeout} The specified I/O operation on %hs was not completed before the time-out period expired." If I disable/re-enable the device it comes back to life for a second before doing it again. Sometimes a BIOS update will kick it into gear, or just a regular reboot. But it's unlcear what the ultimate solution is or why this keeps happening sporadically. These are new machines with clean builds on them, all drivers are usually updated. Anyone else seen this or have any ideas why this keeps happening? I have attached a screenshot as well.

I have an X1 Yoga 20FQ with Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and a Sierra Wireless EM7455 WAN card that came with the unit from Lenovo and an AT&T micro SIM card (also in the unit when it came from Lenovo). I also have the latest Lenovo software for the Sierra Wireless card (v. 7.47.4743.0105) from the Lenovo web site. The WAN card will connect to HPSA on AT&T (using the "default APN" and "broadband" in the Win 10 settings) but it will not connect to AT&T LTE. The AT&T web site at https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/wireless/KM1218316 says to use NXTGENPHONE as the APN, but when I input that as the APN the card does not see it at all. I know that NXTGENPHONE is the LTE APN because that is the APN that my cell phone uses for its LTE data connection. AT&T tech support told me I the Windows 10 and NXTGENPHONE APN settings are correct and the AT&T diagnostics show I an LTE connection is available to me.I realize that there can be sources for this problem (Win 10 or AT&T) but I thought I would ask here to see whether anyone has experienced the problem or has a solution.Thanks.

Received new Lenovo T470 with Sierra Wireless EM7455 and booted it.  Default windows drivers for the WWAN, so I downloaded latest Sierra Wireless drivers from Lenovo's website (NZ3WN03W 17.11.0130.37).  Installation was going fine, but when the installer prompted "Configuring your mobile broadband device - 68% complete. Do not shutdown or restart Windows" the system BSOD'd and now I cannot get the drivers to install - swmbbser01.sys will not load and only windows drivers are used even after completely uninstalling the drivers and removing any devices or pnp driver store packages via devcon.  The laptop came with a restore point but it seems like it's corrupted and I can't revert to that state.  Does anyone know of a reliable way to get the drivers to install cleanly? I have tried power cycling the card by disabling internal battery in the BIOS

It was not recognized, in fact it is still showing "Insert SIM"2) Tried the MICRO-SIM again on my X1 Yoga: it works fine.

Hello and welcomeThat's not a Lenovo deal to lock the ports, more clearly, to choose appropriate default USB composition. MS and Sierra do that. To change default USB composition change Sierra wwan card drivers installation configuration and reinstall them. Edit the configuration.ini file within the drivers package:- [Default Values] section- USBCOMP=x parameter (choose 8 as you want).

Not sure if this is a problem, more just a question... I installed a brand new Sierra EM7455 WWAN module a few days ago in my X260--got it direct from Lenovo. Getting it working was a little convoluted (had to reset BIOS) but it connects just fine to AT&T. The question or concern I have is when ever I restart the computer, I get a pop-up in the lower right that says "Configuring mobile broadband device...Do not shut down or restart Windows." It takes about 1-2 minutes, says "success" then everything is fine. The "problem" is that this happening every time I reboot. Has anyone seen this or know what's wrong? I've attached a screenshot of the message. I installed the official Lenovo drivers for the EM7455. I tried uninstalling the Sierra package and the message goes away--but so does the WWAN module... I re-installed the driver package and now the message is back. I had an X250 with the previous gen Sierra WWAN module and it was generally trouble free, no strange issues like this. Thanks

Current Lenovo firmware for the EM7455 is 02.20.03.22, however Sierra Wireless has a newer version, 2.24.05.06 listed here: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airprime/minicard/74xx/airprime-em_mc74xx-approved-fw-pa... After flashing with the newer version and rebooting, the card reverts back to 2.20.03.22. Has anyone else experience this? Is this something the carrier would dictate and enforce? Any help would be appreciated. Reason for upgrading is, when traveling internationally the unit has spotty connectivity and not very reliable. Hoping firmware upgrade would be a step in the right direction to resolving it.

I bought two brand new X270's WWAN upgradable and bought EM7455 cards separately. I installed the cards as directed. When I booted the laptop the first time after installation, a warning message saying something to the effect of "unknown network hardware EM7455." Windows didn't detect the newly installed card. So I did a CMOS reset (removed the extra battery, disabled the built-in battery on the BIOS and pressed the CMOS reset button to the left of the battery bay). After the CMOS reset, Windows recoginized a new hardware by the name of "Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm" but couldn't install the driver (see the attached screenshot). I did install Lenovo's EM7455 driver (total file size 191MB) and didn't work. I turned to Sierra and found a generic USB Build 4581 driver and it didn't work. When I restarted Windows, the newly found hardware was gone. I did a CMOS reset again and it came back up on the device manager list.  So I turned to Windows update. It found a driver update by the name of Sierra Incorporated - Ports dated 10/20/2016. It tried to install it but it failed. However, the device's name was changed to Qualcomm COM Port (3) and it was still not installed properly. I went to the device's properties and changed the port to 8. It recognized the full name of the card but GPRS connecitons on Windows didn't show up.

Hi, I have appropriate EM7455 working nicely in t460s.

However I can not acquire GPS lock - no location seen by Windows 10 (e.g. windows maps or browsers allowed for location). As Device Manager shows NMEA port COM5 also Port Checker reports NMEA port COM5 4800bps.I'm trying to get a lock with VisualGPSView: it reports 12-14 satellites in view (but 0 tracked), then 6-7 in view (but 0 tracked) after a while but that's all - no lock. It acuires NMEA data all the time and Rx is blinking nicely in green but it also says: "GPS Quality: Invalid" I've tried to switch EM7455 antenna connector - according to Sierra (https://techship.com/faq/42/) it uses dedicated GPS antenna connector by default.

HiThere is a solution in another thread where you've posted short question about issue with em7455 - disable Selective Suspend Mode drivers.Navigate to the folder where em7455 drivers package from Lenovo site is extracted (usually c:\drivers...). There should be Lenovo7455DriverSetup installer and Configuration.ini file. Open the latter in the text editor like Notepad. Add the following string in the 1st section [Default Values]:SS=0It'll disable SS mode drivers installation. Save the file, reinstall the drivers.

Not sure why posts asking about installing an OS other than Windows 10 on this device seem to vanish but here goes my attempt for a Linux Specific question. I am unwilling to run Windows 10 because an OS that without any advance notice will uninstall your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those packages is a required driver is unacceptable to me. Due to the aforementioned issues with Windows 10 I am looking to Linux as an alternative for this device. Are there any known Linux Distributions that will fully support the hardware?Does anyone have experience installing Linux and configuring it on this device?What Linux Distribution is most recommended for this device?What additional drivers or software are recommended on Linux to be able to use the hardware to the fullest? Thanks.
