Hi I bought a couple of W520's second hand that came with Windows 10. Ln both machines you can't interrupt the boot with the blue zThinkvantage button. The searches I have done seem to point to remapping it after Windows has loaded, which doesn't help at all. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi,I am suspecting a hardware failure, but wanted to check the forums first anyway.I have an X230 Tablet running Windows 8.1 Update. Fingerprint software 6.0. Was working fine (i.e. swipe to power on and log on to Windows and the Lenovo Password Mgr) until this morning. No more green light on the sensor, no function. Windows says that the fingerprint sensor is not available.It was still showing up in Device Manager, I uninstalled it as part of some troubleshooting and it's not being detected anymore now.Any ideas other than hardware?Thanks,SA.

A:X230 Tablet fingerprint reader stopped working

It sounds like hardware failure but try one more thing:
 
Reboot into BIOS setup (by pressing F1 at the ThinkPad logo screen).
Go to the security -> fingerprint menu.
There's an option about clearing the fingerprint sensor storage (or something like that).
What happens?

Hi, I need your help.  I recently bought a used X230 Tablet. It came without AC adapter. I plugged my 65W AC adapter which I have used for X201 laptop for years, and it works just ok.  But when I searched X230 Tablet AC adapter, it seems that not only 65W but 90W AC adapter is compatible with X230 Tablet. What is the difference of using between 65W and 90W for X230 Tablet? Do I have to buy 90W AC adapter?  Thanks.

Hello,I have a ThinkPad T400 with Windows 10 64-bit. Everything is OK, but the ThinkVantage button works only at startup (to interrup normal start and get into the BIOS?), but in normal system interface it doesn't. The same are the volume and mute keys - keys of volume up/down works (without any indication on the screen), and the mute key mutes the sound only "inside the computer", without muting sound in Windows /this has to be done manually/.So, is there any possibility to install any drivers to make it work properly? Thanks.

Hello, I started a new post because this is a different Error. After I updated my x230t using the recommeneded updates from the website, my keyboard suddenly stopped working. I tried re-installing windows but the error remained. I eventually found the issue being that when I start up the PC, the Fn key is stuck as if its still pressed, even when its not (the key itself isnt stuck). To solve this, I went into Bios and swapped the Fn key with left Ctrl, and now whenever I boot up the PC I plug in an external keyboard and press left Ctrl, this "unsticks" the left Ctrl key (which is physically the Fn key after I swapped them)  and lets me use the computer normally. What could have caused it? is it unrelated to windows seeing as it happened after I clean installed? how do I go about fixing it? and can I contact an offical Lenovo support somewhere online?

Hey guys, I'm new on this forum and I'm also new in using X230 tablet or any 2-in-1 laptop. This is my second ThinkPad but first convertible laptop. About problems. Shortly after I've got this ThinkPad I've installed Windows 10 because in my opinnion it works better and IS better than Win7. But after installation, I've encountered a few problems.First problem was no auto rotation - I could do that only by installing drivers for Tablet Buttons (it didn't bother me that much as next few problems).Second problem was not working Dolby Profile - anyone has suggestions why? I've read that eccp4.exe or something like that is not supported in Win10. The only thing with Dolby that did work was Dolby Digital Plus (and the equalizer there is horrible!).And third, and also MAIN problem was random screen touches. Did anyone encountered this kind of problem on yours X230 tablet? It happened only when I was fully in "tablet mode". Like for example I was doing some notes on classes and A LOT of times Action Center came up. With no touch from my side - I was only writing notes or not even touching the screen. Also normal touches appeared, not only Action Center sliding. Firstly I've got a little scared because it's used laptop bought on something like ebay.

A:X230 tablet - Windows 10 and 7 problems

i've been running windows 10 as a devoloper since before its's launch with very few issues.First make sure you download the drives from lenovo for winows 10 that till fix most of your issues.some things are just not compatable with the windows 10 OS look for replacements in the windwos store but your dolby does have a driver update. for some reason the thinkvantage software does not down load the drivers for you you'll have to do that on your own. Once you download all your drivers your X230T will run much more normaly. keep in mind however if you have the touch screen model it only supports 2 finger touch while winows 10 supports 10, it still works but many of the gestures don't you can chage your screen if your so inclined as far as i know there is no driver update. Good luck

Hi, hmandi01
 
In Windows 8, writing-to-text transcription is normally a "keyboard," if you will, that you have to select. When you are on the desktop of your machine, is there a keyboard icon on the taskbar? If this is not visible in laptop mode, then see if it is there in tablet mode. If that icon is visible, click on it. This should bring up the touch keyboard. On this keyboard, the bottom-right key should be another keyboard icon. Select this icon and then select the pen option (third option.) This should change the touch keyboard into a transcription keyboard.
 
Best of luck. Let me know how it goes.
Adam

Hi all, This laptop is giving me nightmares at this point. I can't afford a new one at this moment so i come here for input. The issue I am having right now besides the known audio failure is with the power management, spedificaly the throttling that happens while it is on AC. To me, it seems that the Speedstep roles are reversed. It runs on full turbo speed, over 3ghz on battery but it clocks down to 1198mhz according to CPU-Z when it is plugged in. No combination of settings either in the BIOS, Power manager or the Windows power options have any effect, everything is at 100%. The battery is installed at all time and I have tried both 65 watt and 90 watt AC adapters which are both new. BIOS is updated and I have tried both Win 7 and 10, fully updated with a fresh install with newest drivers and programs and numerous BIOS resets with CMOS battery removed. I am suspecting the power jack at this moment but Power manager reports both AC adapters correctly. I appreciate any response if anybody else has faced this issue or anything like it.

I have just completed a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate and all went well except for the screen brightness issue. Anyone have any ideas where I can simply increase this as I have searched everywhere for screen brightness, even BIOS for any setting for display. I have latest update to display driver. I have two other laptops and each shows much brighter than this one and I am surely disappointed in this display. Not sure if it is because this screen is touch enabled and also works off keyboard that could be the issue and a separate setting could be involved on the touch side of the display as it does work with a stylus pen or touch also. thanks and   I hope I can get this brightness to increase somewhat as it is too hazy for me.

Hello,  I'm having some trouble with turning on my laptop. The problem originally started when some keys on my keyboard stopped working. I cleaned the keys, restarted my laptop, tried a previous restore point and then did a hard reset after nothing worked to fix my laptop.  After hard resetting, I tried turning on my laptop and it did not turn on. So far, I've plugged in my laptop into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor directly into the wall outlet, and removed the battery and plugged in the laptop. The one thing I have noticed with my laptop is that when I plug in the adaptor, the battery and sleep lights turn on for a moment, then the sleep light turns off, and the battery light will stay on momentarily but then it will blink off after a few seconds. What else should I do? Thank you

I recently bought a X230 tablet. Actually I did not realise that it can rotate screen in tablet mode automatically, at least in Windows 7 and Windows 8. I performed a clean install of Windows 10 and obviously it did not support auto rotate even with all the drivers that Lenovo System Updater helped me installed. One thread in this forum solved auto rotate in Windows 8. It is largely the same to that thread. Except that for Windows 10 you need to let the X230 recognise the built in accelerometer which is actually mainly intended for protecting hard drive from being damaged after free fall. Incidentally accelerometer found its way in Sony's hard drive walkman HD5 before, which also has hard drive accidentally falling protection and screen auto rotating function. All you need is 2 pieces of software: 1. Thinkpad Tablet Shortcut menu                                                                 2. Thinkpad Active Protection System.The 2nd file is the one that will allow the accelerometer come to life. Installing this 2 software and the needed reboot. go to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Tablet Shortcut\' and double click on 'LENTBCTL' to run it.

I bought a used x230T a while ago. Initially the touchscreen worked fine but the motherboard failed after about a month, so I replaced it. After doing so, however, the screen no longer takes touch input of any kind and the webcam no longer works. Any attempts to reinstall drivers have not worked, and I sometimes get an error stating that no touch input hardware could be detected. I've also tried unplugging and replugging the ZIF connectors many times. Does anyone have any advice for other steps I could take or others things I could try? I got the tablet model specifically because of the touchscreen so it's been disappointing to go without it. Thanks for any tips you may have.

Hi, maiki
 
Yes, there is a sleep button. Depending on the behavior of your Fn keys, then you will either press Fn + F4 or simply F4 to put the machine to sleep. I would try to create a new power plan and have the same settings to see if you can get the proper power button behavior.

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

When working in tablet mode (without the hardware keyboard connected), there doesn't seem to be a way to get past the CTRL-ALT-DEL screen. On previous tablet devices, like the Lenovo Helix 2, you would simultaneously press the Power + Windows Button to replicate the CTRL-ALT-DEL entry.   I've tried pressing Power + the volume control keys (since those are the only other hardware buttons), but that doesn't do anything.  Apparently Microsoft uses Power + Volume-up on the Surface Pro 4 in order to solve this issue. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get around this other than disabling the security standard requirement?  Does Lenovo have a driver or firmware update that can be installed to make the volume controls perform this task, like the Surface Pro 4 does?

RELEVANCY SCORE 51.2

Hi, I recently purchased this, which had been reset to factory default bythe seller (Windows 8). I immediately updated it to the Anniversary version of Windows 10 but I have noticed that the Windows LogoButton on the tablet does not appear to be working, when I pressthe area there is no response.(Must admit I didn't try it before I updated the OS). I believe there should be a vibration when the "button" is pressedand I know the vibrator is working as it works when I turn the system on/off. Is there a specific driver for this or is it packaged with somethingelse? Thanks for any advice

X230 2306CTO Windows 10 Pro 64-bit The microphone was working fine after Windows 10 upgrade.  No new updates I am aware of were installed (unless forced by lenovo or microsoft without notification).  Suddenly today the built-in microphone is not detected.  Yes it is enabled in BIOS.  I uninstalled all Realtek and Dolby software and reinstalled latest Realtek High Definition Audio Driver ver. 6.0.1.7040 from lenovo support.  Clean install with 2 reboots.  Yet when I check Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Sound there is no recording device shown.  Right-click options to show both disabled and disconnected devices are checked.  No items appear at all.  Playback devices shows only "Speaker/HP" with "Realtek Hiogh Definition Audio default driver".     If I try to open "Dobly Digital Plus" I get this error showing audio driver 7.3.2.2 is installed by application expects verison 7.6.3.1.

HiCould you boot up laptop from the Linux LiveUSB/CD? There is a chance to reset audio chip within that OS from. As an example of such issue and troubleshooting:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Lenovo-X220-Conexant-20672-SmartAudio-NO-SOUN...Also, try to reset BIOS/EC, it'll remove electric voltage from the laptop parts, chips: unplug the battery and charger, press the power button and hold it during 20...30 seconds. Then enter BIOS Setup, load default settings and change the ones you need.
