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 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.)

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.

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. Examples:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X240-Fn-Key-not-responding/m-p/1551442/highli...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X240-Fn-key-not-working/m-p/1844428/highlight... Cheers and sorry for cloning this question one more time (I'm sure you can smell my desperation).

I recently purchased a refurbished x240 - I am having 2 issues, which I would welcome help with: 1. the areas with buttons on the top and bottom of the track pad also move the cursor - this often causes an inaccuracy, with the cursor moving slightly before or after pressing one of these buttons - is there anything which can do done about this, or is it a design fault? 2. my computer arrived with no internal battery, just a 6-cell external battery - the seller claims that the internal battery only functions if the external battery is a 3-cell, and that there is therefore no point in me purchasing an internal battery - can this be verified? Thanks for your help!

Hi,I bought a Thinkpad X240 a few months ago, it was working perfectly except the know bug of the "bottom left corner" which happened a few times.But a few days ago, the screen backlight suddenly stopped working. I put it to sleep, I came back home, I opened the lid and the screen didn't light up.The screen itself works perfectly (if you put a light on it you can see what's displayed), and there's no other problem.This doesn't seem to be a software problem since I doesn't work in the BIOS, nor in Windows or Linux.. Why does the backlight would suddenly stop working ? Thanks in advance,

A:Thinkpad X240 no backlight

Same here. The backlight is out in the bios as well so I believe mine is a hardware problem. For other thinkpads, I find people saying this is a surface mount fuse on the motherboard and can be "fixed" by bridging the fuse with solder. But I can't find a fuse near the display port that is bad. The most likely fuse I find is F2 on the backside of the board near the display port, but it doesn't measure as an option circuit so I don't think that one is bad. I will probably buy another broken laptop and swap parts.

Hello, so I have a Lenovo think pad x240 as issued by my high school and I was using it last night and tried to power down by pressing the power button as I was in a rush but that did not work so I shut it down normally and now I am trying to turn it on and pressing the power button is not working, it definately has battery because I plugged it in overnight so I think the power button may be faulty, I have only had the laptop for 2 years. And yes I have tried the "secret code" trick but that does not work - presumably because my laptop also has an internal battery.I need help asap!!!!! Thanks in advance

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.

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

My Thinkpad X240 only comes with an external battery pack, no internal.  I usually power down my laptop at the end of the day.  The following day it won't power on.  I have to remove and re-insert back the battery pack before it turns on. If I power down and leave the laptop for 2hrs it will power up without me having to remove and re-insert back the battery pack.  But if I leave the laptop powered down for more than 3hrs I have to do the process to turn it back on. The battery charges normally, I usually get 4hrs out of the 6 cell pack. I ran the Lenovo Solution Center Comprehensive Tests, no errors found.  I also did the rest button but it won't power on without going thru the process of battery removal.

Hi My X240 needs 17s until the first message appears on the screen.Usually this takes about 2s (no matter whether Quick Boot is on or off).Everything else works fine. By searching for similar problems I found about a dozen threads covering the same topic (for other models), but no solution. The laptop has the newest BIOS (2.40). Unfortunately I can not test any downgrade, because of security reasons. I tried to force a downgrade by extracting the BIOS files and by using a generic flash tool, but I did not succeed. If someone knows how to do that, please let me know. Resetting the BIOS did not help.In the last few days I tried almost every combination of BIOS settings, but no success. I should mention, that the Intel AMT has been configured to be permanently off. I should also mention, that for testing purposes I'm using a minimalistic setup: the naked mainboard just with the CPU cooler, a DRAM module, and a SSD is hooked onto a docking station. Any help greatly appreciated. regardsEdmund

I just got a 2nd hand X240 in a good condition. The problem is that even with the smallest of tasks, my fan spins up and the estimated battery life drops immediately. Just surfing the internet, nothing heavy, download a file, and ffffff the fan starts, the vent is spewing heat and the battery life drops to 90 mins. I've never seen any of this behaviour on any of my laptops. Anyone a suggestion? I have a clean install of Windows 10, browse with Edge, and fairly conservative power settings that I always use on my laptops. (most settings on power saving, cpu between 5-100%)

I'm looking at purchasing a used X230 laptop from someone and trying to confirm the LCD panel it has.  The description is listed at 2325-DN3 and I can't find any info on that model in any of the reference books.  The Lenovo website shows it with IPS but indicates it's a generic listing. The buyer is a large website so sort of difficult to have them send me the serial #. Any ideas how I can confirm before making the purchase? Thanks!

Hello, I have a thinkpad X240. The Trackpoint button (nipple) has never worked since I've had it. The computer used to have Windows 8.1, however now it has been upgraded to Windows 10. The trackpoint button still did not work after the upgrade. I have tried updating the BIOS to the latest version, with still no change. The keyboard was recently replaced by a Lenovo tech as some keys stopped working properly, which means that the trackpoint button was replaced too. However, it still does not work. I have tried completely removing and re-installing the Synaptics driver from the lenovo website. The Trackpoint button shows as "Enabled" in the BIOS. Below is a screenshot of the "Thinkpad" tab in the mouse section of the control panel. I am guessing that there is supposed to be another option under the "Pointing options" dropdown menu which allows the Trackpoint button to be enabled.  If anybody has any suggestions as to how I can get it working, that would be appreciated.  Thank you
