X220 Tablet bluetooth no longer working with Windo...

Q: X220 Tablet bluetooth no longer working with Windo...

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?

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 replied in a another post also, sorry for that.. But I hope this post get's more attention. I just bought a x220 Tablet but my touchscreen doesn't work at all. I bought de computer with  Windows 10 installed on it. I just used WacomhardwareCheck and it gave the message: 'your hardware does not appear input capabilities and is not currently supported by the Wacom FEEL driver'.So, does this mean my touchscreen is broken and doesn't work? Is there a hardware problem? How can I see if the touchscreen is registered by Windows?it would be great if someone could help me to get this thing working... I think the touchscreen makes this an interesting machine...

So, I boot up my laptop and notice I can't type my password in, so I log in with my fingerprint, I open up notepad and notice that my 4 5 R T F G V B, Left Shift, and Left Ctrl keys all don't work. I also noticed that they're all keys that are staggered vertically (with the exception of the modifiers).I went to a keyboard tester site to get a visual representation of the keys that don't work.Notice the chunk in the middle of unhighlighted keys. I've taken my laptop apart before, so I pulled out the keyboard and inspected the keyboard connector and socket and found no tarnishing, bent pins, etc on them.Is there a way to diagnose if this is a keyboard or a motherboard issue?

Hi everyone, I have a Lenovo X220 Tablet that has touch screen and pen. They suddenly stopped working today. The LCD screen still works pefectly fine, however. The touch screen is enabled on the touch settings. When I try to calibrate, it does not detect my finger or the pen. I also noticed that when I tried to reinstall the driver and it said "a supported tablet was not found on this system". I have the most recent bios. I am running Windows 7 that came with the laptop. All windows updates completed. Is it possible for the digitizer to be defective, but the LCD screen to work perfectly fine?Could it be just a ribbon failure?Which part would need to be replaced, if this is the case? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

A:X220 tablet touch screen suddenly stopped working

Even though it looks like a single device, it is really 3 separate ones.  There is a basic panel.  There is a static discharge digitizer in the front to sense finger touches.  There is a second Wacom digitizer behind the panel to detect the pen.  Any of them can fail.  The wires in the cable can also crack.  Since both digitizers failed, I would first look in device manager to see if there could be a problem with a USB hub.  (digitizers both connect as USB devices.)  My next guess would be the cable.  Sorry I cannot be more definite.

My X220 tablet comes with pen and limited touch support with 2 touch points. I have no issues on windows 7 but on windows 8.1 it has changed to be working with only 1 touch point since some time that I don't remember exactly when. So that I can work with one finger only and 2-finger functions such as pinch to zoom are unavailable. My drivers are all uptodate. I think I should completely uninstall the related driver before reinstalling but don't know how to procede and couldn't find the solution. I tried uninstalling all HIDs through Device manager and one-by-one, specifically wacom device. when I uninstall it, I lose touch option completely. but reinstalling through Device Manager sounds like recovering exactly the previous faulty condition. Maybe there is a conflict with windows 8.1 like Microsoft Input Configuration Device which might be unlikely.  So is there any other way to have full wipe and clean reinstall of those touch screen drivers? I appreciate it if you put links to the drivers for me, if they are not available on Lenovo Support. Tell me if you had the same touch issue in Windows 8.1  and how you solved it. Thanks

After not using a bluetooth set for a while, it is no longer working with my X1 Carbon Gen 2. This same headset used to work with this computer and still works with a cellphone. However, with Bluetooth Enabled and the headset powered, the device shows up in the list of Bluetooth Devices and is shown to be of type Heaset. The Headset service option is enabled in its property settings too. It does not appear in the list of Playback devices, although the device paired properly. Things already tried to solve this but did not work:- Toggle Bluetooth antena on and off- Disable and renable Bluetooth- Update Bluetooth driver.- Uninstall and reinstall Bluetooth drive.- Update sound driver.- Uninstall and reinstall sound driver.- Even tried the bluetooth with the sound driver uninstalled! The problem always remains the same: Bluetooth is on, the device pairs and shows up in the list of Bluettoh device and has the headset service enabled, yet no sound comes out of it and it never appears in the list of playback devices. The X1 Carbon Gen 2 is running an up-to-date Windows 7 64-bit.

I have an Alienware M11x notebook computer.  Recently I purchased a Sony bluetooth headset. I had not previously used any bluetooth devices on the computer. 
I set the laptop to discover devices and set the headset to be discoverable.  After pairing the headset to my laptop, I opened my music folder and started listening.  After hearing music for about 60 seconds, the headset went silent and the music starting coming out of the speakers instead.  I then tried to 'restart' the laptop's bluetooth receiver but there was no way to do it.  It was even missing from Device Manager.  Finally, I closed the display and let it go to sleep.  When I resumed again, the bluetooth was back.  I was again able to listen to music but, after another minute or two, the device again disappeared.  I even called Alienware support.  He upgraded the BIOS and reinstalled the bluetooth driver, but it would never work.  This was because he never had me actually shut off the computer.  In other words, once the bluetooth device was gone, the only way to get it back was to sleep or shut down (power off, not just reboot) the machine. 
After these steps failed to resolve the problem, the technician set up an appointment for me to get the bluetooth adapter replaced.  This went very smoothly (great on-site support), but when I got home, the problem was still happening even with a new bluetooth module.

Hi,I'm not seeing X220 T listed by Lenovo in laptops-windows 10 compatibilty list...??? Is that right? Mine is a 3 years old system... I can't believe is not going to be possible to use Windows 10... Anyone has tried it?Thanks.

A:Windows 10 support for X220 Tablet

Hello,
 
It may work fine with Windows 10, however, I don't believe its generation of CPU, IGP and chipset are supported by Intel for Windows 10, which means that Lenovo can't support them, either.  For what it is worth, I installed Windows 10 on a ThinkPad X61t and didn't notice any issues, and that has been out of support for a much longer time than your X220t.
 
That said, it could be that Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 drivers for the various bits of silicon inside your X220 tablet may work just fine under Windows 10, in which case you would be up and running.
 
The best suggestion I have is to make a thorough backup of your X220 and then try applying the Windows 10 Upgrade.  If it doesn't work, you will be able to wipe the drive and then reload your backup.
 
Regards,

My "new to me" X220T is working well, except for the screen rotation. Initially, I had a notice that the auto screen rotation in secondary landscape was incompatible with the WWAN, which I understand is due to the aerial being too close to the WWAN card in this position. Disabling the WWAN cured this, but it seems a shame that it is the screen rotate disables the screen rather than disabling the WWAN in this mode. Having increased the RAM to 8GB, albeit with some warnings high frequency row hammer bit flips!) from Memtest86 , I now see a non-specific warning in the secondary landscape position. Is this normal, or is there a fault?

There are only 2 parts involved - the fan and the motherboard.  If the fan bearing gets hot and seizes, it would spin at start-up to avoid the fan error message.  Fans are cheaper than motherboards, so if it were mine, I would try a new fan.

Hello All! Hoping someone can help with a strange issue. Very recently my x220 started intermittently "losing" the battery. Here are the characteristics of the issue: - Sometimes the machine will boot, and I will see the battery status detected, charge percentage, etc. After a few minutes, however, the x220t status will simply change to "battery not detected." When this happens, I can unplug the laptop from AC power and it will run perfectly off the battery, albeit with no indication of charge level.- Other times I'll get the "no battery detected" issue right away upon booting. Again, the laptop will still run on battery power when unplugged.- Most of the time when I try to boot on battery power, I'll get a "critical low battery" warning and the machine will not boot at all. However, if I plug in AC power, it will boot, and if the battery has a charge, it will again run on battery power (while still saying "battery not detected").- On occasion, allowing the battery to drain completely and then rebooting on AC power will cause the computer to detect the battery again, although most of the time it will "lose" the battery again. I am currently running the most recent version of Kubuntu as the only OS, however I recently had Win10 on there as well, and windows did not detect the battery at all, despite attempts to uninstall and reinstall drivers, update firmware, etc.  It is an original Lenovo battery, although I recently did purchase an aftermarket batte...

Hi, Yesterday I bought a used X220 Tablet - the version with Gorilla Glass - and installed Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) on it.What a great little computer this is! But what disappointed me was the lack of precision of the pen that came with the tablet. Unfortunately I could not find a setting - or program - to calibrate the pen. On this forum I learned that a lot of owners have to deal with a pen that is not accurate. On one of the posts I read it was mentioned that the digitizer in the X220 Tablet is made by Wacom, so I went their website for a recent drivers. Luckily, I soon found an appropriate tool, the Wacom Hardware Check, on ftp://ftp.wacom-europe.com/pub/WINDOWS/WacomHardwareCheck.exe . After downloading and running it, I was told:"You have hardware that is compatible with the Wacom FEEL driver. You can download the latest driver here: http://www.wacom.com/feeldriver " The URL led to a file on http://cdn.wacom.com/u/drivers/TabletPC/ISD_DualTouch_732-12.exeThe file is about 24 Mb in size. After downloading and installing it, I was able to calibrate the screen, with 25(!) calibration points. Accuracy is great now; not only in landscape, but also in portrait mode! Since I found no reference on this forum to the Wacom FEEL driver in combination with the X220 Tablet running on Windows 10, I thought it might be interesting to others in this forum. Cheers!

A:Thinkpad X220 Tablet - Installation of sierra wire...

I have not tried it, but I can tell you that most likely it will not work in the default configuration.  Lenovo machines have a whitelist that checks to see if the WWAN card inserted into the machine is regonized and certified.  If the machine doesn't recognize the card it will display an 1804 error.  Since Lenovo doesn't yet sell these cards yet, it's unlikely that this card is on their whitelist. Some people modify their BIOSes to recognize cards that Lenovo hasn't put on their list yet.  I believe you can find such moded BIOSes here: http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Removed-whitelist-removal-Lenovo-ThinkPad-x220-v1-21 or alternatively maybe in the forums in http://www.mydigitallife.info/ There may be newer versions of the BIOS in the same forum, but I haven't checked in a while. I've been waiting for months for Lenovo to support the MC7750, or another LTE card like it.  I've been told by several sales people that "it's right around the corner".  Pretty much hogwash so far.  I haven't gone the step of ordering one of these card yet hoping that Lenovo will officially support it soon.  Please post back though if you do end up moding your bios.  I'm curious to know how well it works.  Also read up on taping pin 20.  Some people say it's necessary in addition to moding the bios. Good luck.

A:My x220 tablet arrives this Tuesday! What apps to install and what else to do?

0_o Huh? Like in general as a Windows user, Thinkpad user, or as a Windows tablet user?My favorite general advice for the laptop is this: use the Lenovo Power Manager to set the processor as low as possible and activate all other power-saving features except lowering screen brightness.Then, go and get some kind of browser add-on that disables Flash. Firefox does it using the "Toolbar Buttons" add-on, and it even allows you to activate a single Flash element at a time--meaning you can watch the YouTube video without having to see the Flash ad beside it.Those steps transformed my battery life experience. As a Windows tablet? I don't know.... On my Acer W500 (a disappointing machine), the only thing that doesn't really work is Chrome--it insists on me using the scrollbar to scroll, whereas IE and Firefox accept one-finger scrolling just fine, same as any tablet or smart phone. In my case, I really enlarged the DPI settings a lot--150%--to make the right-click menus easier to poke at. Being a bigger screen, the X220 won't suffer from that problem as much, but if you're using the multitouch version, it might be worth experimenting with different DPI settings in the control panel.

A:X220 Tablet Screen type identify ( and touch input...

Ok, so the lcd is definitely multitouch , which is now a reason to concern .Basically , windows recognize it as a laptop, no hid touch input devices in device manager whatsoever.Is this a common issue? Tryed unpluging and plugging back in LCD micro cables but nothing.

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 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.

Hi
One of my friend in India purchased "HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3) Tablet (WiFi, 3G via Dongle) by HCL" online . It says in many places that it supports Bluetooth but when I saw this I couldn't find any option for the bluetooth and don't know how to turn it on. Is there any one who has purchased it and help me out to turn the bluetooth on or how can we transfer files with some other bluetooth device. Even I couldn't find much good information on internet.
 

A:Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

I don't see it listed in the spec sheet, nor the user guide.

On both of my android 4.2 devices, Bluetooth is listed after Wi-fi in Settings. I would think it's the same w/ android 4.1. It's possible the tablet doesn't have bluetooth.

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.

Is your Bluetooth LED on?  It's the second one from the left, next to the WLAN LED. You can activate Bluetooth by pressing Fn + F5.
