Preferred Solution: X220 Bluetooth problem

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 have an x220, Windows 7 Premium. It does not have a Bluetooth radio function; it does however have Bluetooth in the Control Panel and as a File transfer utility in Windows accessories - I don't know what that means. Does it mean I can Bluetooth stream files from the X220 to another Bluetooth equipped machine? Thanks very much.

I noticed that the Intel Centrino N1000 in my X220 does not do Bluetooth so this means my rig has a separate solution. So I was wondering, once I get a witelist free BIOS, what options can I use to modernize my machine? The latest is Bluetooth 5 and there are not even any USB models on the street yet.

The x220 has blluetooth 3 which is obsolete, it was when the machine was delivered, so much for this year's tech so new wi-fi cards have bluetooth 4 or even 4 so if I disable the bluetooth in the BIOS it also disables the wi-fi card too, so any suggestions on how to get rid of the problem? I tried removing the daughter board, that did not work out well, this is one of many headaches I will be criticising lenovo for on my website

I ordered my X220 with Bluetooth 3.0 and it is listed in the order sheet. I am now trying to use it for the first time to connect a Bluetooth mouse, but having no success. In fact, I can't find Bluetooth anywhere in the system. There is no Bluetooth in the Control Panel and I can't find it in the Device Manager. I tried installing the 6.4.0.1500 Bluetooth device drivers from the Lenovo website. Apparently it was already installed and it asked if I wanted to do a repair installation. I selected repair installation but at the end it reported "No Bluetooth device was detected. Please make sure that your Bluetooth device is plugged in properly in order to continue". Is it missing from my X220? Is there something to enable in the BIOS (I can't find anything)? Richard BTW, my system is type 4286-CTO according to ThinkVantage Tools and the sticker on the laptop. When I go to Download Drivers & Software on the Lenovo site and use Run Auto-Detect, it displays "ThinkPad X220i (4286-CTO)" (it should be X220 not X220i). If I manually select the system instead of using auto-detect, under X220 I can select 4286 but CTO is not listed.

Hello,I own a stock x220 with an i7.I would like to use the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth mouse. Apparently that mouse uses bluetooth 4.0, which my laptop does not have (2.1 i believe but i am not sure and don't know how to check either). Will I be able to connect and use that mouse? Thank you

A:X220: connecting a bluetooth 4.0 mouse

Hello,
According to the X220's hardware maintenance manual, the ThinkPad X220 contains a Bluetooth Daughter Card BDC-2.1, with FRU# (part#) of 60Y3271 or 60Y3275.  Searching on those FRU numbers reveals this page on the independent ThinkWiki site which says those cards are Bluetooth 3.0.  It also mentions that the part is likely to be swappable with a new Bluetooth 4.0 BDC card.
 
From looking at the details [age for the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse, it mentions Bluetooth Smart/Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility and specifically says "Bluetooth 4. enabled devices" in the System Requirements.
 
It is still possible that the mouse will work with the older Bluetooth 3.0 card, but just consume more power.  Or, you may need to replace the Bluetooth Daughter Card inside the X220 or use an external Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter with it.  It would probably be best to check with Microsoft for an authoritative answer.
 
Regards,

Anyone else encountered and solved this problem? I upgraded about 2.5 weeks ago and have looked everywhere for a solution. I finally got the wireless radio settings to apear when I press Fn+F5 but no bluetooth option exists. Today when I decided I had wasted enough time and tried to go back to Windows 7, it won't let me even though I still have Windows.old and it is whin the 30 day window. I feel stuck. I like Windows 10 but not having bluetooth makes me wish I would have left well enough alone and stayed with Windows 7. Anyone have a fix for either of these problems?

Greetings folks,  I would like to seek your prompt support to resolve my technical issue as I upgraded the Operating System of my laptop Lenovo X220 from Windows 7 to 10. Unfortunately, I couldn't locate the Bluetooth driver on my computer, so I communicated this issue to Microsoft.

So I finally received my heavily delayed P71 and so far I'm pretty happy with it save an issue with CPU throttling.  I noticed when doing extremely CPU heavy SQL or GIS analytic workloads that the frequency was constantly dropping from 3.9Ghz (4 core turbo) down as low as 2.4Ghz.  I downloaded Intel XTU and pretty quickly found the problem...it's running into BOTH current and thermal throttling!   In the graph below the yellow and red spikes are thermal and current limit throttling, respectively. I can reproduce this with either real world workloads in SQL or various GIS applications and using synthetic benchmarks as well (XTU, AIDA64). I might expect this from a gaming PC but certainly not from a mobile workstation costing almost $5,000. Specs:Xeon 1535m v6Nvidia P400032GB DDR42 x 512GB NVME RAID 02 x 1TB SATA software RAID 0 All of these tests were done on a raised, vented monitor stand for the best airflow. I'm sure an undervolt and repaste would take care of the majority of the problems, but I simply refuse to have to go that route on a PC in this class. Thoughts?

Hello Forum,in my x220 (win7x64, 16GB) a Samsung 850PRO 512G SSD is working flawlessly since about 6 months. Some days ago I have bought a Samsung mSATA 850EVO 512GB to add it in the mSATA-slot.Result:- After adding the mSATA 850EVO, the BIOS posts "Error 2100: Dectection Error on HD0", which means the SATA 850PRO is no more recognized.- When I remove the SATA 850PRO, the mSATA is still recognized - but thats not the config I want to use.- When I replace the SATA 850PRO by the original SATA-HD (Hitachi), at the _first_ start the BIOS posts an error for the mSATA (HD2).It still can boot and start Win7, but freezes after some seconds. And after a restart (2nd Boot) I get Error2101, HD0 incompatible.Status:- the x220 has the recent BIOS from October 2016,- the 850PRO the recent firmware EXM03B6Q,- currently there is no firmware update for the 850EVO.Obviously the 850EVO is disturbing the SATA-Handshaking. Any suggestions what I could do to make it work?And finally, who has a working combination of SATA + mSATA:- which SATA-SSD works with- which mSATA-SSD ?Thanks, Thilo

Hi, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X220 and my C drive (windows drive) corrupted yesterday. I cannot get to Lenovo Recovery to restore my C drive because the C drive was totally corrupted. I use linux bootable usb to try to access my hard drive, the C drive was corrupted, no data can be read, but the Recovery Partition (Q:\) was fine. I try to re-install my Thinkpad using the same OS (Windows 7 Pro-64 Bit) using the product key inside the battery slot to see if my hard drive fails or not, but the Windows that I reinstalled was fine until now. The Recovery Partition was still there, with different Letter path (changed to D:\) and whatever inside the recovery partition was hidden but the partition was 10GB used, so I think what inside the partition was hidden. My question is:1. Can I use my Recovery Partition again to factory reset my Thinkpad?2. Can I use the Recovery Partition with the Lenovo Rescue & Recovery apps that I download from Lenovo Website? Thank you, I still need My Thinkpad X220 eventhough I already have newer Lenovo laptop.

Hello everyone, this is my first message here, and by the way, I'd like to apologize for my poor english ;] Yesterday I have noticed a problem with the display in my X220 (type 4290-W1B). There is a small, white spot (about 1 mm diameter), clearly visible on the screen. It doesn't look like a normal bad pixel, but like a problem with the background light, or something. It is not visible when black color is displayed. The laptop was bought about 3 months ago and everything was OK until yesterday.I have attached some pictures of this dot, but it is difficult to capture it with the camera (it is much more visible in real). I have marked the spot (it is in the middle of the circle). The pics are in high resolution so you can zoom in.  What should I do now? I have heard , that the Lenovo bad pixel policy is 3 bad pixel per display.. Maybe some of you have noticed such problem already?Thanks a lot. Pictures:http://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_1.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_2.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_3.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_4.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_5.jpg

Try installing the driver from the below site firstly - it may uninstall the generic driver automatically with the installer, if it wont - uninstall the driver in device manager, and reboot, hopefully, the above settings will prevent it from installing.
If the driver wont install normally because of a OS mismatch do the following
To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

After trying numerous times all of a sudden I get an icon telling me a network cable is unplugged. Say what? What cable? Now Bluetooth can't even find my phone and again tells me discovery is not turned on. I even installed the software on another computer and have the same situation.

So I am out $58.00 and have a useless Dongle. I think I will contact the manufacturer and tell them I have their Dongle hanging.

A:Bluetooth Problem with XP

I know nothing about bluetooth, but it may help you to restore your pc to a point before all this happened, go here to see how.

Also you may wish to repair windows xp go here to see how to do that.

Or try this>

How to go about Repairing Windows XP
1. Put your Windows XP Install CD into your CD-ROM drive.
2. Reboot your computer.
3. Let your system boot off of the CD.
4. Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.
5. When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.
6. Press F8 to agree to the End User License.
7. Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.
8. When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

This is the part that might make you nervous . The Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.

Don't worry, your user data is still intact. Nothing has been lost, nothing has been deleted. Your data is safe, just the OS has been repaired, so relax.

There is nothing to worry about as long as you follow the steps to repairing Windows XP.
good luck.

I need your help setting up bluetooth on my PC, I am ruining winxp.

I installed MSI bluetooth dongle and Widcomm Bluetooth version 4.0.1.2101 software. everything went OK till i tried to send a file to my Nokia smartphone N70 using SEND TO from context mouse menu. I got this message "Service File Transfer is not Found on device (Bluetooth name)".

This means that device can see my mobile and read it but can not connect.

Please help to have this problem solved.

Best regards.

I have been trying to pair my mobile phone with my pc in order to copy a music track to use as a recognisable (to me) ring tone. My computer is having none of it and I get a message telling me that Windows could not save Discoverability or Connection settings.

I can switch on BT on both my pc and phone and I've updated the BT drivers. Still no go. When I try to add a device the box is empty and it won't allow me to type in my phone's name. Nothing happens at all.

Can anyone help me please? I would add that I'm at a bit of a loss where BT is concerned.
