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.)

Yesterday I installed a Samsung 950 pro 256gb m2 pcie nvme ssd into a Dell E7270
Older configuration was with a sandisk regular sata 3 ssd. After replacement did a bios reset twice, once factory reset, once custom. (I left sata on ahci.)
I chose to install windows 10 pro x64 by using the uefi/gpt methode. Legacy options off.
Installation went without a problem. Afterwards I installed the Samsung nvme driver 1.4.7.17.
Also the Samsung magician software. It reports a link speed 8Gbps (is ok), link width 16 Gbps (should be 32?) .
Is there a way to change the pcie link width from 2x to 4x? I thought this ultrabook did support x4.

Hello,My understanding is that both the T460p and T470p support PCIe 3.0 x2 via their SATAe SSD connector. The T470p has an adapter on which an M2 2280 PCIe NVMe drive can be connected and get speeds higher than SATA.  The T460p on the other hand only has this one Toshiba SATAe drive to improve on SATA speeds, and that is limited to 256GB, it is rare and cancels the WAN port for further storage. So, can the adapter from the T470p be used in the T460p? This would solve all problems for the T460p, higher speed and good capacity. Thanks

Hi, the PSREF document for the T480 mentions that the M.2. 2280 SSD slot has 4 PCIe lanes (see http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T480/ThinkPad_T480_Platform_Specificatio...). However the german site campuspoint.de who sells campus models of the T480 states that the M.2 2280 SSD slot in this model (unlike the T480s) is limited to 2 PCIe lanes, just as on the previous T470. I wanted to be sure and asked them, and here is their reply: We were stumbling over the same point in the PSREF. The difference to the former Models like T470 and T570 made us suspicious, since the new models use a very similar Adapter. So, we made a simple test. We took a T580 with a Samsung PM981 SSD, which should be able of up to 3200 Mb/s of read performance and made a simple benchmark. Our test showed a read performance of roughly 1800 Mb/s at max. This is about the same score as we had with the T470 and T570 Models and just slightly under what is theoretically possible with two PCIe Lanes. It looks like Lenovo just didn?t mention the restriction by the Adapter. This has nothing to do with Campus Models or not. The Campus Models use the same parts as used in other Thinkpad models. As you mentioned the T480s doesn?t have this issue.  Can Lenovo confirm there is a mistake in the PSREF of the T480 and T580 with respect to the number of lanes for the M.2 2280 SSD slot?

I am looking for a new laptop. I currently have a X121e and recall it being extremely easy to configure on Lenovo's site. So I decided to look at the X270. However, having had great difficulty even starting to configure it (apparently, Lenovo does not favour Firefox any longer), I'm currently having trouble understanding the choices. The first is the choice between PCIe and SATA PointingDevice. Following some discussion, I gather this has nothing to do with any kind of pointing device, but affects my HDD/SSD choices. OK, so let's see what the PCIe choices give me. I get 5 'first hard drive' options. (Nothing I do gets me a 'second hard drive' option, so not sure about this. Or rather, I almost understand this now I've read the platform specification, the user manual, the hardware maintenance manual and various posts on Reddit. Lenovo do like to make buying a challenge!) Now, however, I've reached the end of my google-fu. Intel 256 GB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe256 GB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 - CapableIntel 512 GB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe512 GB Solid State Drive, PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.01 TB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMeI understand the difference beween 1/2 and 3/4 and 5 is obviously size.

Very disappointing, clearly shouldn't happen but sometimes does.  Manufacturing quality control is not always what it should be. From your description, I assume you do not have the Onsite warranty support service. I'd call Tech Support directly and demand immediate "escalation" -- speak to a supervisor or manager, if necessary.  Perhaps they can arrange for a tech to come out with another replacement part and troubleshoot the problem. You shouldn't have to threaten to return the machine for a refund/replacement but that is an option as well. Please keep us apprised of progress.

Self-encrypting SSDs such as the Samsung 950 Pro M.2 PCIe-NVMe as well as other 2.5" formats allow for a password for drive encryption to be enabled from within the BIOS.

When in the BIOS to enable HDD (SDD) password(s) the 850 is listed while the 950 is not. According to Samsung, the 950 Pro has "AES 256-bit for user data encryption". Has anyone been able to enable the HDD (SDD) drive-encryption password of a Samsung 950 Pro OR any of the Lenovo furnished PCIe-NVMe M.2 drives within their BIOS settings? Of note, once enabled, upon start-up the BIOS will ask for the password of each drive with a password enabled before proceeding to the OS.

Hi All,I'm about to purchase an X1 Carbon. A long time Lenovo user and a big fan.I have read conflicting articles regarding which hard drive may be the best option (with best referring to speed!). Some people have said that the PCIe-NVMe can run excruciatingly hot and actually bottleneck the whole computer whilst others have said it's blisteringly fast and makes a huge difference.I'm keen to know if:1) It makes any noticable difference to speed compared to the SATA?2) If any of you have had any heat issues with it?3) If, in your opinion, it is worth the extra money?My use case for the laptop will be heavy data analysis in Excel and SpotFire (sometimes Access) as well as playing the occasional game.

Hello all, is it possible to upgrade, after market of course, to a 1T NVMe PCIe SSD? This is a novice question, but wanted to ask, as some friends are pushing me towards T460S because of this drive availability. Would not all I need is an adapter and would that, along with the  NVMe PCIe drive fit, within the casing? Or is it more technologially involved than that, like bios, space and other such? Also, the T460P has 4g RAM soldered in, yet one can upgrade to 32g involving 2 - 16g sticks, this does mean that the 4g is diabled with the 2 sticks installed, correct? TIA - bo1953

Hi All, I would like to upgrade the m900 with a Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD. Given that this drive is quite fast and given that my model only seems to have PCIe 2.0, I think that I should not connect the drive to the small and slower PCIe x1 slot. For this reason, I am looking for a PCIe to m.2 adapter that fits into the larger x16 or x4 slot however I am having a hard time finding one that you can buy here in Germany. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!

Hi, 2 days ago i bought a Lenovo P50 Worstation because my Mac Book Pro decided to give up on life afrer 10 years. I live in Germany so it came with the German language software, since Ive always used the English of OS and wanted a clean install to get rid of all that unnecessary bloat wear, i formatted the NVme M.2 drive and began to install Windows 7 or 8.1 or 10 but nothing works. I've used Rufus to make a usb drive but it seems that the install partition cant be formatted,"can't install windows on partition......". I am assuming i need a driver for windows to identify the M.2 drive or thatever. Is there anyone out there with a fix for this problem, I really need to get this workstation up and running.
