Q: Solved: X230 vs. X240

I am looking for a speaker system under $50, and was looking at two different sets. The logitech X230 and X240. I noticed that the X230 has a more powerful subwoofer and satellite rating. The X240 is more expensive, but IS that because of better sound or just the ipod dock? I have an ipod so that would be helpful, but I definately don't want to sacrifice any sound quality.
Thanks

I have a new X240. It has a sim card slot on the right side. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit. it seems that the x240 does not recognize wwan hardware. I can't find it in the device manager. It doesn't connect to any network when I insert a SIM card. Also, no unknown devices show up in the device manager. I installed the following drivers in an attempt to fix the issue:-Ericsson N5321gw wireless WAN-Sierra Wireless 7355 - Gobi 5000 ... but no success. I also tried running commands in cmd window to check the status of the wwan:-netsh mbn sh int-netsh mbn sh cap int=* ... but I always get the same message:"Mobile Broadband Service (wwansvc) is not running" I am starting to think that having a sim card slot does not neccessarily mean that the x240 is Mobile Broadband capable. Any suggestion?

It is only WWAN operable if it has a WWAN car installed.  Does your X240 have a WWAN card installed?

I have an X230 i5 processor with a 1 TB SSD and I recently picked up a X230 with a i7 processor and a much smaller hard disk.  Can I just swap my big SSD into the new X230 (moving that version of Windows 7 Pro) and then install the smaller hard disk (with its version of Windows 7 Pro) into the i5 machine. (Will be swapping the memory so the i7 has the 16 GB and the i5 has 8 GB).  I know that if they were completely different computers this would not work, but since both are X230 will it work?  I'd rather not have to restall all the programs if I can avoid it!

I saw few people have problem with this, It was **bleep** hard for me to find what was wrong with my laptop, It just lost its power (instant power-off) from time to time, It was like that for like a half a year, I couldn't figure what was wrong with it. It was totally clean inside and wasn't overheating ,ran all the tests- all was fine, battery also was fine, so is power supply and power module.The thing that fixed it- Was Changing CPU thermal compound, it had dried out really bad and was causing this gremlin.. Even though I didn't believe that it could be the problem because it didn't had overheating issues. Spent $1 on the compound from ebay and the laptop has been fine for over 2months now.In case anyone has the same problem or comes up when searching this post- that's the thing that will fix it even if it sounds weird.

My brother got a X240 with a regular 1TB HDD, and I'm looking to help him with upgrading to an internal SSD for the OS/Apps. I first thought it just used a regular mSATA, but it apparently uses a new style called M.2.
 
Unfortunately I can't seem to find any info on what's supported, how large can they be, etc...
 
My local computer store has this for M.2 in 512gb size, would this fit in the X240?

A:X240 M.2 SSD

Howdy HiVolt,
 
I don't think that one will fit.  There are several different lengths of m.2 SSDs and the one in the X240 is 42mm.  The one you linked is longer than that.
 
Up until recently the highest capacity 42mm part was 128GB IIRC, but I think someone has come out with a 256GB 42mm unit.  [edit] I'm not able to verify that just now.  [more edit] Yes I am.  See post below.
 
Here's their compatibility list.  Please note I have no personal experience with this company.

I?m unsure if I?m doing the right thing here, never posted anything like this before. The X240 laptop I have was working yesterday, and I put it to sleep so I could continue working later. However now it won?t turn on at all, except the lights over the F1 key, F4 key, and Fn are on. It wasn?t plugged in, but this has never happened before. I?ve also taken out the battery in a myriad of different methods people have suggested online but there?s been no mention of the lights still on.  If if I could get some help, that?d be great.

Hello, In short, fn key does not work in lenovo x240 with latest bios update (2.35). I can swap fn and ctrl keys, and then function keys works via the ctrl key, but the fn key does not work as ctrl. I think this problem is OS independent (tried w10, w7, ubuntu). I have tried installing older bios for this model from the following page:https://support.lenovo.com/es/en/olddownloads/ds035950 But I can only install a few of the newest ones, as the older ones report that they are not compatibles with my system (though the readme says w7-w10 compatibility). No luck with any of the ones I could install. I also tried the hotkey features integration from here, no luck either:http://support.lenovo.com/es/en/downloads/ds029026  This question has been answered a gazillion times, but ill do it one more time as there is no solution posted anywhere.

Hi folks, I have an X240 that just ran out of warranty. I was having some intermittent hard drive troubles so I sent it in before the end of the warranty, and it came back with a new hard drive. Unfortunately, it no longer recognises my external batteries - I have two, both genuine Lenovo, one 68 and one 68+. Lenovo won't fix it as they say it's related to the battery latch being broken, but the battery latch has been broken for a whole year and the batteries always worked just fine. When I first got the computer back the batteires weren't showing up in Windows power manager, but I could see them in Lenovo Settings where they were showing as "good" condition. The 68+ had 5% charge and the 68 had about 80% charge.  I did a heap of Windows updates etc. which didn't fix it, then tried to "reset" the 68+ through Lenovo Settings, after which it stopped showing up there at all. I now get a message about a battery error when I boot to Windows. I haven't put the 68 back in for while, though I guess I could to see if it still shows up. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas why the computer might have suddenly stopped recognising the batteries, and anything I can try to try to get my battery life back (going from about 10 hours to about 1 hour makes the computer kind of useless for what I use it for). As I said, I'd be very surprised if it was to do with the latch, as that's been the same for ages. Thanks in advance

A:X250 Trackpad in an X240?

Hello XThinkpadUser, I am very sorry, but I advice You to forget this idea. There are most likely going to be some imcopatibilities in BIOS, and if not so, then some differences with the shape of the keyboard / trackpad connector. Plus you would need to replace the whole keyboard bezel. My opinion is based on the same glitch with old X200 and X201 - many people asked if X200 can be backwards upgraded with touchpad - it can be definitely not (afaik). Nobody can mark your question as impossible until first X250's arrive, but in your case I would hurry selling your X240 unit. Sooner you do it, you will get more paid for it... (believe me, you have my best sympathy, but I am in much more huge trap - what shall I my X220 change for?? :-) ) Regards,skrble

Can an X240 laptop have both an M.2 SSD and a WWAN card simultaneously installed?  Or is there only a single M.2 port such that you can only have one or the other? Also, if you buy an X240 that comes from the factory with an SSD, is the factory SSD an M.2 SSD, or a 2.5" SATA3 SSD? Thanks.

A:Can x240 have both an M.2 SSD AND a WWAN card?

Read the PSREF for x240 options:SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high, removable, upgradableDouble-sided M.2 SSD, via M.2 Card slot, exclusive with WWAN cardSingle-sided M.2 SSD, via M.2 Card slot, exclusive with Smart Card readerSo x240 can be configured even with 3 drives simultaneously:- 2.5" SSD or HDD- m.2 SSD- m.2 cache SSDWWAN card could be installed instead of the 2nd m.2 SSD, seems PFREF has a fault, look at the HMM for confirmation.If you purchase x240 from the shop.lenovo there is a couple conditions:- in order to get 3rd m.2 slot and cache SSD you should choose basic model with HDD. System Expansion Slot for the cache m.2 SSD will be added automatically; - or choose the model with 2.5" SSD. In this case you should add Smart Card Reader which could be equipped with 3rd m.2 SSD slot. But it's not all - you should find on aftermarket or purchase from Lenovo service center adapter and cable for the 3rd m.2 SSD youself. Look at x240' HMM and fru_bom file for details.Note cache m.2 SSD from Lenovo has a small capacity, so you should replace it to your choice. The only limitation is the formfactor - it should be single-sided 22x42 mm to fit into the slot. So the nomenclature and capacity are limited.

Hello,I'm sitting here absolutely confounded. I just reinstalled Windows on my x240 and decided that, while I was at it, I might as well remove my BIOS password, as I am no longer in school. I primarily use my laptop at home, so a password isn't really necessary.I go into the BIOS and straight to the security tab. I start disabling everything that is enabled and related to Supervisor password, Boot-up password, Start-up password and so forth. At one point, I am prompted to type in my current password and next to fill in my new password and to type it in once more. Being somewhat familiar with how unintuitive a BIOS can be, I leave the fields where I have to type in my new password blank, thinking that the BIOS will then assume that I want to have no password. I leave the fields empty and hit ENTER. It accepts this for some reason. I get a system halt for some reason and my laptop reboots. I am then prompted to type in my BIOS password as per usual, but it won't accept the password I usually use, which means there's an active password, but no longer the one that I've set prior to this. I try different passwords, I try just hitting ENTER, but no luck.I am locked out of my laptop and every Google result even remotely related to my issue suggests that I have to purchase a new motherboard for my x240. Really?I did not set a new password, I left the fields BLANK and hit ENTER. I have no idea what the password could be.I figured perhaps the BIOS password reverts to a prior password,... Read more

Leaving the fields blank caused my BIOS to revert to the earliest password, which is the password I set prior to the one I am using now.Either that, or my supervisor password and my start-up password were different.Anyway, feel free to mark my thread as resolved or just delete it.

I am faceing with a problem with my x240 thinkpad. I want to boot it up but it didn't. I noticed strange sounds, it was the hdd. I've tried to boot it up with a new one and enter the bios. It was stuck on the lenovo screen for a few minutes without any response, after it dissappeared and it showed up an icon requesting a password or code I guess. Please help me!

I have recently purchased a ASUS Zenscreen MB16AC to use with my Lenovo X240. Unfortunately whenever i plug it in using the USB port I receive an error sign saying it is not compatible and my device does not support DP Alt mode and i need to download the correct drivers from the site. I have visited the ASUS website and downloaded the recommended drivers but still receive the same error message. I am starting to wonder if the X240 even has the capabalities to use USB display - can anyone confirm if that is the case - and if it can, can you recommend what i would need to get the display to show? Thanks
