T580 Rough/Sharp Edges

Q: T580 Rough/Sharp Edges

Hey folks,I just purchased a T580 from Lenovo.com this month. I received it and upon opening immediately noticed a continuous sharp edge all along the three sides of the keyboard/computer part of the laptop. The screen is fine, this is only along the edges of the base portion, and not including the back edge where the screen hinges. The textured surface on top of the base seems to have a sharp, possibly unfinished edge. I have spoken with the support line and haven?t gotten far. I would like to compare my laptop to a T580 in store but cannot find one. Its hard to photograph but I think I?ve captured it here just above the fan openings. If you zoom you can see the light from what I call a sharp edge. The fact that there is a change in angle at all in thus location leads me to believe it is a production oversight. I do believe I could whip this unit into shape with an emory board, but why settle for a less than excellent product. So my question to the forums is, can anyone attest to this being the normal fit and finish for these T580?s? Is this a problem or is this the expectation. Has anyone else experienced this issue?Zoom to the center of the picture and you can see the sharp edge along the bottom edge of the top piece of material

I just got a Yoga 910 as a replacement for my Yoga 900.   Is it just mine or are the edges of anyone elses' Yoga 910 extremely sharp?  When I'm using the trackpad I have my palm sit on the ledge of the laptop and it's very sharp and starts to hurt after a minute.  My Yoga 900 had maybe a plastic or something going around it and it was mostly flat or rounded -- not bothersome at all -- but the edges of the 910 are concave and sharp.  

A:Yoga 910 Sharp Edges?

Hi johnmk84 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
We don't have reported sharp edge on the design of Yoga 910 not like with Y50-70 but it would still be best if you call in technical support to have it informed as it may also be an isolated case and to best check on it. 
 
Usually for prolonged laptop users , wrist guards / rolls can help.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how best it goes for you.

I just recieved a Yoga 13.9" 920. I love it except for one major thing.  The edges are so sharp that I can only be on my computer for 20 mins. and then i need a break.  I have done exstensive research to no avail.  I have seen "fix-it" DYIs but why should I have to wear wrist wraps or tape the edges?  Anybody have same problem and gotten any help?

A:Sharp edges on the 910 and 920 series

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 910 and it has two sharp edges on the bottom - very hurtful. Even the lid edges are too sharp which are felt in the normal use of holding it and handlign it. Terrible. The two hartp bottom edges are a major source of discomfort and hurting my palm and wrist. One should not ahve to tape the edges or wear a wrist band. Lenovo shoudl fix the problem.

This is from one of my kid's computers.
He had lots of people through the house and was letting them on the computer.

Redirects out the wazoo.
I got rid of the Smitfraud and most of the Veramonde, (spelling?)but not all.
There are still weird things happening as well.
In fact, when I check internet settings, there's a message at the bottom saying that only the administrator can change some of those settings.
He IS the administrator.

I'm not at his house..mainly because I can't get to this site from there before being redirected to hotdate.com or some such.

I'd wager there was a pornfest goin on there and lots of goodies came in with the garbage.

I was able to run spybot and found Zango, and Veramonde, as well as a few others which are somewhat insideous and can't really be gotten rid of.

Hi everyone so I've been running a T1100 AMD CPU for a while and I hate it, it's done well but in the last few months the whole system has gone to pot so I figured I'd make the move back to intel.
Now I was planing on getting a single GTX690 but then for the same money/slightly less money I can get crossfired HD7970's 6000MHz.
So this was my planned setup and it hit's the mark all par the OS but I can't get an OEM copy of windows 7 so I might have to move over to 8 for 60...

Intel i7 3770K 3rd gen
Asus P8Z77
2x Gigabyte HD7970 3GBGDDR5
Coolermaster HAF XM with GX lite 700watt PSU
8GB Corsair Dominator RAM 2666MHz
internal Blu-ray drive
Segate 750GB hybrid SSD plus an extra 1TB drive for Steam games
Windows 8 64Bit

So what does everyone think? I'll be running on a 32" 1080p Samsung LED TV.
 

A:£1500 rough budget for new PC

I would get rid of the 2666Mhz and just pick up 1600Mhz RAM. Also, what is the purpose for this PC? If it is for gaming I would probably knock the 3770K down to a I5-3570K.

I would go with a different PSU then the one you listed. For crossfire cards 700w will power them, but I'd opt for something around 800-850w range. This will allow you some headroom for the future.

When it comes to 690 vs 7970 CFX it all comes down to patience. When running two cards you will often run into driver issues and things such as micro stuttering. Additionally, it create much more heat and noise. So, if you can deal with things like that - go with the 7970's. If not, go with the 690.

For your storage, I would opt for a regular SSD instead of a hybrid and just buy a larger secondary drive.

A:New PC - rough budget $1500

Why do you need 2x GPUs but a weak CPU and little RAM? Even if you were doing graphic intensive tasks like Photoshop or running CFD simulations, you will still need large amounts of RAM and a good CPU.

Before I can give an approx price tag on your system, one thing for me needs a little clarification, maybe this to will help others slap a price tag on your system.

But I'm a little leery with the use of some words here, "just bought" and "brand new' and "few months old"! But with the BIOS having a version date of July-31-2007, how new can this computer be?

I'll just sit back a while and see if this can be clearly explained by either you and or someone else out there who might have an answer. After that I may slap a price tag on what I feel this system is worth. But do take one thing into consideration when standing by and awaiting peoples approx value of your system. Just like buying a new car, once it's front two tires hit a city street the dealership automatically devalues the car by 1/4 right from the get go, I should know I worked for Chevrolet as a car salesman for 3 years. So as like with cars so true with computers, they can depreciate their value very quickly. Even just by burning some hours on a computer, it can therefor go towards people not looking as the system as brand new anymore, but rather they might now think depreciated value.

Just something to think about!

I bought a 25 dollar rosewill full atx case from newegg about a year and a half ago that came with a 350W atx psu. Somehow it ran for 1 year running a full atx pentium 3 mobo with 3 hd's and a combo drive, lan card, modem, video card, and a fan. Then it ran for about 2 months on my micro atx mobo with a amd athlon 64 3200+, 4 80mm fans, 1 120mm fan, 2 hd's, combo drive, modem, and a nvidia 8600GT. Somehow it ran all that time with no problems ever. So i went with a new Rosewill Stallion 500w psu, and it hasen't given me a problem yet.

I've heard very mixed things about Rosewill. I personally own a 17" Rosewill LCD (now a backup monitor since I have a Samsung 226bw) which I've had since about 2005-2006 I think. Never had any issue, worked wonderfully and still does. I also am using one of their PSU's on my current rig, so far so good - been running 4 months with the PC on for days at a time.

I thought I'd make a thread that contains some useful info and some cool tools to use to make Win 8 all pretty and customised to your needs and geeky desires.

I will start with some basics and then list some tools you can use. Please feel free to add what you use and I will update the post with your suggestions and recommendations.

*Please note all tools and methods are used at your own risk , break your system and rant to me about it and I will laugh at you ~ Remember you are doing stuff Windows 8 is not designed to do but if you follow instructions provided by the authors you won't go wrong.*
Patching your system to allow Visual Styles

The first thing you will need to do is patch some files to allow you to add an unsigned custom "Visual Style" (VS) they are : themeui.dll, UXInit.dll and uxtheme.dll

You can use THIS or THIS . Please follow the instructions TO THE LETTER and you are good to go. Really easy to do and it's free.

*NOTE* Not sure if these will work on 8.1 but I'm sure they will , once a final version is released.

How to add a Visual Style.
Download a VS from your favourite source ( I will list some later on in the post) then unZip/unRar if needed. You will have to copy the unpacked files to your themes folder. This is located here :

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

You should now have placed the "theme" and a folder containing shellstyle.dll and wallpaper ( If one is provided ) into the correct place.

There's no non-model specific laptop forum so I'm posting here and the moderator can move is necessary. My wife has had it with the referenced Dell (I had upgraded it with an SSD & Win10 last July--I think the mem is 6GB). It's the only non-Lenovo machine we've had since '98. It was purchased by IT recommendation when I was out of commission for a few weeks and couldn't attend to the details. She uses the laptop infrequently (main machine is a Lenovo desktop with 1st gen SSD & Win7) but when she does she has the patience of a fruit fly and will not accept anything but quick response/loading. The primary applications used are: Office 365 (largely Outlook), Quickbooks and Quicken. I have a P50 which is way more power & $ than she needs. She wouldn't use a touch screen but a 15" screen is preferrable. An onboard optical drive and camera are unneccessary. Model suggestion(s)? Mark

I have had htis problem for ages, and now want to actually fix it!

I have permintently coloured titles on my desktop icons. I have tried going to control panel/System/Advanced/Performance/settings 'use drop shadows for icons'...etc...plus i have un-checked lock desktop icons.

Also there is a slight roughness around the icon, showing part of the same background colour as the title, as if the icon has been roughly cut out, leaving a jaggedy edge to the icon.

Anyone have similar problems, or knows how to solve this? I think I may have been a victim of spyware a few times.

A:Rough Desktop Icons and Opaque Icon Title

If you have ever right clicked on an item and clicked
"Set as desktop item..." then this may be the problem. You need to make sure that they are not selected.
Do this by right-clicking on the desktop >
Display / Desktop tab / then selecting "Customize Desktop".
Click on the Web tab and make sure none are selected.

Maybe? XP's Tweak UI tool > under The Repair branch

Quote:




The first item on the list is Repair Icons. To improve performance when loading icons into the user interface, Windows XP keeps track of all the icons currently in use in a special cache file. If this file becomes corrupted, the icons used in the user interface will become scrambled. For example, you or your users may discover that your icons are all black or have mysteriously changed. You can quickly set things straight by choosing Rebuild Icons.

I've some how managed to caught a Trojan or perhaps the new term is RANSOMWARE.
 
I receive a box on my system microsoft security essentials has determined that 
I have several trojans and other exposures on my system. I receive this about 
twice a day. I don't have essentials running on my windows 8 system. They want 
me to select OK so they can repair the problems.
 
I have not selected anything to determine the cost of repair if any.
 
I've tried several methods to resolve this. ex; malwarebytes, anti virus, bit defender,

just to name a few. 
 
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm about to order a T580 today and I see there is a choice of "6cell Battery 48Wh Rear" and "3cell Battery 24Wh Rear". Does anyone own the 48Wh battery for the T580 (or T570) so that they can confirm if the 48Wh batter sticks out at all? I want a battery that does not raise the laptop. Also where can I buy a second (spare) battery that is exactly the same as the "6cell Battery 48Wh Rear" and "3cell Battery 24Wh Rear"? Thanks in advance.

Hello, sorry for posting these basic questions but I've done some research and I want to make sure that I make the right decision when buying a new T580. I've been out of the loop in tech for a few years now, and I'm just learning now about hardware BIOS whitelists, etc. I want to buy the most basic T580 model and make sure I can upgrade certain components later on when I have the money available to do so.  1) Can I upgrade the basic model with the i5-8250u / 4GB RAM to 16GB of RAM later on? PSREF says yes, up to 32GB, and I've watched videos that say there are two slots for RAM available. Just want to make sure there is not any limitation and that I can upgrade later on to at least 16GB. 2)I already have a Samsung SSD - SATA III 2.5 inch. Since this model has a 2.5 drive I assume I can replace it with mine. But am I limiting myself in anyway for future updates if I don't get one of the NVME drives now? 3) I would possibly like to get the WWAN card later on. Is it possible to buy and add one later on?  4) Will this computer run dual 4k external monitors, should I ever get them?  Since money is very tight, my only priority right now would be to get the stuff I cannot add later on (3840 x 2160 screen, possibly graphics card but would have to bump up to 8350u).  Thanks!

It seems you are uncomfortable with the lid.It's impossible to tighten it unfortunately. You may have to deal with it.Maybe a little design change for Lenovo eh?

I have a brand new T580 in front of me. I am trying unsuccessfully to boot it from a USB stick. In case it makes any difference I am trying to do this before ever booting into Windows. Here is what I have tried. First attempt: Power On; Hit Enter at Lenovo splash screen; Hit F12 at Startup Interupt Menu; Select my USB drive from list; Hit Enter; screen goes back for about one second and then the F12 menu reappears like nothing happened. Force power off by pressing and holding the power button. Second attempt: Power On; Hit Enter at Lenovo splash screen; Hit F1 at Startup Interupt Menu; to eter the BIOS Setup. Disable secure boot (Security > Secure Boot). Save (F10); repeat first attempt. Same result. Third attempt: as before except that I additionally set Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot to Both and tried again. Same result. Fourth attmpt: as before except that I changed the boot priority to put legacy first. Same result. Fifth attempt: as before except that I set  Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot  to Legacy Only. Same result. The USB stick has Grub on it and boots Linux distributions. It works in about a dozen other machines that I use it on regularly.  I tried two separate USB sticks and I tried both USB ports on the right-hand side of the computer. If I can't get this to work then it's going back. I am stuck. Please help!

Hi everyone, basically I have the same problem as previously mentioned in other threads, but the solution providied, isn?t applicable for my case. The fan turns on if  you?re only webbrowsing or doing some editing work in word, which obviously shouldn?t be the case.I run Win10 Pro. All updates and drivers seem up to date, at least Win10 says so.How do I check if it?s really the case? BIOS is 1.09. Setting the battery plan doesn?t have an effect. Coming from a reddit post, ist was suggested, that I should ask @someotherguy if a solution he proposed for other models, also works for T580. Everything is explained in the following reddit  thread. http://reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/8f24ki/t580_fan_turning_on_cpu_10/dy1cw9u Help would be greatly appreciated. Please note, that I am not as tech?savvy as you are, so please keep it in mind, if you?re answering(read: talk to me like i?m an idiot ) ?

Battery 1 currently says 0% and not charging and does not recognize it anymore I think.  Where do I go from here?

Hello- this is my first post to the Lenovo community forums. I just received a brand-new T580, custom ordered directly from Lenovo. If it matters, this was supposed to have a 500GB spinning disk and 16GB SSD (Intel Optane PCIe). Windows 10 was the only option for pre-installed OS (Professional, in this case). This new machine will not boot and has yet to boot. I received it on a Friday afternoon. Once I unboxed and charged it and tried to boot, tech support conveniently closed for the whole weekend. I opened a ticket in Lenovo's MTSA (yet another account to open), with no response. Now I am turning to the forums. I installed the battery and charged it, then attempted to boot. My first attempt resulted in INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE, then rebooted. The same thing happened again, then started "Automatic Repair" Automatic Repair (a/k/a Startup Repair) did nothing, probably because there is no existing image to revert to or older version of Windows to fall back on. I get the following errors: "System Restore: To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore. Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select System Restore." (Of course, that does not happen-this is a brand-new laptop) Then "Re-image Your Computer: An internal error occurred. The following information might help you resolve the error: STATUS_WAIT_2 (0x80070002)" (Good luck!) I ran all the Lenovo diagnostics, and they all pass with flying colors. I also like that my display... Read more

Please advise if Lenovo can deliver T580 with preinstalled Windows 7 Professional as out of box delivery so save several tinkering hours at user's garage. It had been tremendous performance issues with T570 with Windows 10 resource hog experience. I would not prefer to run Windows 10 again on T580 - high performance machine hogged by Windows 10. If Lenovo could pre-install downgrade option out of the box that would save several hours of research by end users, T580 with Windows 7 would perform more stable and solid provided if they have enabled all the drivers to function properly.  This has been hugely frustrating experiencing to deal with T570 machine running Windows-10 Pro, I had to dump the machine. I dont have much confidence to run T580 on windows 10 pro, it would not even match T520 machine ( 7 years old machine) running on Windows -10. Looking forward for the solution, request Lenovo team to enable Downgrade option as part of the customization to save users's time and stable user experience. If Lenovo Does not deliver out of the box, first thing to do after the machine is to wipe out Windows 10 to install, Please let us know if the drivers available or I would be placing a ticket to go through 100 steps to get it done.  Thank you,Mamba.

Hello everyone,I'm planning to buy my first Thinkpad, probably a 8th gen Intel processor one. I read this on the T580 specifications sheet : "System has one HDD slot or one M.2 2280 slot exclusively for storage" but that doesn't seem clear to me.I found here someone else who as the exact same, unfortunately unanswered, question :System has one HDD slot or one M.2 2280 slot exclusively for storage. Why I cannot use it with dual drive setup. One fast but low capacity PCIe NVMe ssd on the M.2 slot and another high capacity hard drive on the regular 2.5" HDD bay. Why one or another but not both? I couldn't find a simple and clear answer to that question
