Q: ACPI bug - affects X1C6, X1Y3, X280, T480s, T480, T580, P52s, possibly more.

This bug deserves more attention than it is currently receiving. It should be pinned in every forum with an affected machine, so that the owners of those machines are aware that it exists. It is currently squirreled away in the T series forum, under the outdated title "T480s - ACPI bug". I have asked that the thread title be updated and received no response. I have to presume that Lenovo did not see my request (in which case, they'll see it now). It would also be nice to get some kind of status update. For example, I am still waiting for confirmation that the patches from the newer thread were sent to engineering (see this message).

Preferred Solution: ACPI bug - affects X1C6, X1Y3, X280, T480s, T480, T580, P52s, possibly more.

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.)

Hello, There's a bug in the ACPI tables that affects all of the machines listed in the title. The bug causes heavy CPU usage on one thread due to frequent ACPI interrupts. The symptoms are a slow system, and high CPU temperatures (idles around 65 degrees Celsius). Some operating systems may mitigate the symptoms, but the bug is present regardless. The following circumstances trigger it:-powering on the laptop-waking from suspend (and possibly hibernate - untested) The following actions prevent it:-reboot the laptop (temporary fix)-disable thunderbolt in the UEFI settings (permanent fix - with latest UEFI updates) The official UEFI update changelogs for all of these machines make explicit mention of this issue: "-(Fix) Fix an issue where system may become hot by system interrupts when Thundrebolt is disabled in ThinkPad Setup - Security - I/O Port Access." Unfortunately, the bug was not actually fixed. The solution that was implemented is only a bandage for the "disabled" thunderbolt state. This patch should resolve the problem. This patch would then remove the bandage of the official fix, since it should no longer be necessary. I will leave that for your engineers to decide. These patches were made for the T480s, but should apply equally to all affected machines.

This is more of an intrigue than an issue but I'm still curious as to why this happens. Issue: When placing a T480s on top of another T480s both machines will be forced into sleep mode.  How to reproduce: Line up a T480s on top of another T480s (or T480) and the device will go into sleep mode. I've Stacked T480 units and this does not happen this seems to only affect the T480s line. (These test were preformed on the latest bios/driver revisions) What I think maybe happening is that the T480s when stacked are triggering the lid closed sensor of the other unit. Since this is not the case for the T480 units we have I think it may be because of the thickness of the s models. Is this something that will eventually be fixed via bios update? or is this just a flaw in the T480s design? Thanks for in advanced for your response!  

A:T480s is forced into sleep mode when in close proximity to T480/T480s

I've seen this happen in the past, it was due to how strong the magnets are that keep the lid shut.

Hi, I was using X1 Yoga Gen 3 on a bus. The screen kept shaking. When the bus was on bumpy part of the road, the screen even felt flat on my kees. Is this normal for X1 Yoga Gen 3? Does X1C6 has this problem also? As far as I recall, I did not have such problem with X1E.

It seems that X1C6 receives better support than X1Y3. How about the Yoga C930?

A:Do Thinkpad X1C6, X1Y3 get the same level of support from Lenovo as the Yoga C930?

Are you talking about calling Lenovo for warranty problems, or this forum?  If calling, "Think" products are handled separately, but X1C and X1 Yoga should be the same as each other.  If this forum, you are most likely to get the most help on products that are most widely distributed.

This post is partially to request assistance and partially to voice aggravation and disappointment. My old laptop was failing and I was in need of one for travel with WWAN capability. I initially bought an X1C6 that showed the WWAN card as enabled in BIOS. When I found out that the card was not present, I returned the laptop. After doing further research, I settled on a T480s that was WWAN upgradable, expectating a wait for the EM7565 with FRU 01AX762. Now the Fibocom L850-GL with FRU 01AX786 is available for new builds, but I cannot find where to buy it on the site or elsewhere; if this is not simply due to me being unable to navigate the poorly-designed Lenovo site, it effectively punishes anyone who ordered early. Finally, I tried my old EM7345 with FRU 04X6014 and encountered the 1802 error for an unauthorized device. Researching that further led to understand that Lenovo uses a whitelist - another punishment. I am now ready to return this laptop as well unless I can make some progress before traveling again. I would not be surprised if a class-action lawsuit were brought against Lenovo and any other manufacturers restricting individuals from making use of their own legitimately purchased hardware, especially when false or incomplete information is pushed by the company. If anyone knows where to obtain either LTE card, I would appreciate it.

A:X1C6/T480s WWAN difficulties

Looks like the Fibocom is available on the Lenovo Encompass site based on the part number you posted.

Hi All, I recently acquired a x280. I'm an unfortunate Linux user. The x280 has some unsupported hardware by the Linux kernel, so instead of complaining to a company which does not care, let's hack the kernel and make it work. The NFC chip has a commercial name : NXP NPC300 but it is unclear what real chipset is behind. It 'seems' it is a np548 chipset but the ACPI enumeration returns 'NXP1001' instead of 'NXP5440'. Can someone confirm the chipset version on this laptop ?Or perhaps a Windows user can check in the device list name ? Thanks in advance

I currently have T580 with pre-installed WWAN module (Fibocom L850-GL) and trying to get to work it on Linux. It works perfectly fine on Windows. So far I discovered that Windows driver uses PCIe protocol to communicate with WWAN module, but Linux is supported apparently only through USB protocol, and if PCIe is enabled, the module ignores all USB commands according to its hardware specs document (page 26) - https://www.mev-elektronik.com/files/MEV%20Elektronik%20Service/produkt-downloads/rf-microwave-wirel... Fibocom recommendation is to disable PCIe in BIOS, that is not supported by stock ThinkPad. Thus in Linux the device is only displayed as "Wireless controller: [0d40]: Intel Corporation Device 7360 (rev 01)" through lspci , and nothing on lsusb . Any suggestions how to make it work on Linux? As an alternative I'm considering getting another WWAN module, but it's quite likely it will not work due to whitelists. The only other module that is whitelisted for sure is L830-EB, that does not have global coverage and thus doesn't work in the US or China, even so it was reported that it's Linux-compatible (USB-mode only). Maybe there is a patched BIOS that has whitelists removed? Wondering if there are Linux enthusiasts who are also looking for a way of using WWAN.

Dear Readers, I am planning to buy a new Thinkpad T serie 14 inch and I am wondering which model I should pick.By any chance, does anybody know which housing (chassis) has the best build quality in terms of thermal design and fan noise? In other words which of the three housings will be running the coolest and quietest? Is it a good reason to think it should be the t480 because it has more room for airflow? Thank you in advance!

Hi there, I would appreciate any feedback on the actual difference between these T and L series laptops. I am returning to a Thinkpad (last one was T410s) after a few desolate years with the Yoga Pro 3. My usage is home business that requires regular videoconerencing and typical web navigation/document processing. Security features are important.  I have been anxiously awaiting the quad core 2018 releases as I was told by one of my IT guys that quad core best supports consistent high quality video.  I had assumed I would return to T series and didn't really even know the L series existed until a few weeks ago. As I'm comparing them though I'm wondering if the extra $ for the T-series is really worth it. I know all these laptops are  new so I don't imagine too many people have had experiences with them, but any research you've done or experience with their predecessors would be helpful. Last time I wandered from the T series I regretted it and don't want to make that mistake again.  I'm only looking at 8th Gen processors. Prefer the i7, but am curious if that will really make a significant difference over an i5 for my particular usage needs. Will buy with or upgrade to at least 16GB RAM. Do like the touchscreen but can live without it.  Thanks! Sean

Windows Update is pushing an Intel graphics driver for T480 and T480s that is broken on Windows 10 Pro 1803 OEM. The recommended update on the Lenovo Support site is also broken. After Windows Update has installed this driver, the screen goes black and I have a blinking cursor. The only thing that works is to turn the laptop off and on again but then after initializing windows I'm supposed to be getting the login screen but instead I get a completely backlit black screen that doesn't respond to anything - no cursor, no blinking, nothing. The workaround is topower off and on 3 times in order to go into safe modeuninstall the graphics card driver in Device Manager and check the box to delete the driver fileschange from Yes (recommended) to No (your device might not work as expected) in Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Installation Settings->Do you want to automatically download manufacturers' apps and custom icons available for your devices.I've experienced this on 2 T480s and 1 T480 in the last 30 hours, so I know it's a general issue. I can reproduce the issue with a brand new laptop fresh out of the box, not domain-joined. The driver that works is from March 2018. Any drivers after this date seem to produce the above issue. The issue doesn't seem to exist on Windows 10 Pro 1709.

I've been troubleshooting random errors (most of which were resolved when I corrected the jumper settings for the CPU), mostly freezing during bootup or problems with the ATA RAID driver. My original set of problems can be found here: http://forums.techguy.org/t247393&highlight=acpi+uniprocessor.html
The computer still freezes one out of every 4 bootups while the Windows splash screen is showing, and I have gotten the occasional blue screen ("Driver IRQ not less or equal" the only recurring one). A friend of a friend is certain that the problem is the HAL driver, and I'm curious about what the difference between the drivers is.

My AMD XP 2500 Soyo board (single processor board) under Win2K SP4 is using an ACPI Uniprocessor setup... he says it should just read "Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI) PC"... is there a difference? Is it possible that I should switch to the second one to change any issues my computer might be having?
If not, what should I be looking for that might be causing the freezing on bootup?

I've been bothered by excessive heat from my X1 Yoga 3rd gen for a while. I am aware of https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-3rd-gen-CPU-frequency-pegged-at-max/m... and https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-3rd-gen-fan-noise/m-p/4048250 and sure, things got better after I applied the fix from the first thread and the BIOS upgrade from the last, so I was happy for a while. But I'm still wondering, is the X1Y3 supposed to be this hot? I tend to use my laptops in the sofa with the machine ... well, on top of my lap. And it feels like I'm having a small radiator there, not a computer. It's not burning my lap but it's definitely uncomfortable. Sometimes I have to put a magazine under to protect my thighs from the heat. And I'm not even doing anything demanding. It's just constantly somewhere between warm and hot, no matter the CPU load. Other premium laptops don't get this hot. My Dell at work doesn't even get warm at all and neither did my old Sony VAIO Z1. Is this machine meant to be uncomfortably hot? Are other Lenovo's hot too (this is my first Lenovo)? Could there be something wrong with my machine? Is it worth calling support or would a replacement machine be just as hot? It would be great to get some input from other X1Y3 users. I thought I could live with it but I'm getting increasingly annoyed.

A:X1Y3 too hot

I have one and I never have had a problem with heat.  I wrote a review on the machine when it was first being released and I ran stress testing with no problems.  I do not tend to use laptops on a sofa or a bed, but on a hard surface instead.  The air intakes are on the bottom and a soft surface will completely block the flow.

I got the X1Y3 recently, with the HDR WQHD screen.According to "Machine Info" on pcsupport.lenovo.com, I have a "Monitor: 14.0" WQHD", so it doesn't mention HDR.According to parts lookup on the same site, I have the "14QHD500,HD BZL,LBO+AUO,AES2" LCD assambly, which I guess is the 500 NITS panel. This brings me to the main issue of brightness - I was expecting to be blown away by the 500 NITS brightness...but it just seems like a regular panel and nothing is great/unique/ultra-bright about it, compared to Macbook Air 2015 or Lenovo T440 (2014!) that I own.Several options I can think of here: A) I may not actually have the right panel installedB) It's a software setting I need to tweak (turned off night mode, turned off auro-brightness), or a malfunction. C) It's a malfuntion on my 500 nits panel. D) It's advertised as 500nits but it's not really close to that. Brwosing through these pages I've seen tons of questions about the HDR abilities not fully supported by windows/INF/color-profiles, but I don't know if brightness is also affected by this. Any help will be apprecited!

However, for the last few days the problem has been occurring quite often. Regardless of the load on the CPU, everything on the screen freezes for 2-4 seconds intervals repeatedly. Input form trackpoint, touchpad, keyboard, USB mouse or touchscreen are delayed as well. This behavior is nor permanent and when the issue occurs it generally despair after 20 or so minutes. Last time it happened I opened Intel XTU (the chip is running with the factory profile) and there was not abnormal power consumption, temperature or processor speed being registered.Restarting the device doesn't change anything. Once logged-in and after a few minutes of light work, the issue appears. Has anybody experience something similar? any guidance here would be appreciated.

Hey all, Just got my X1Y3 yesterday and loving it. Upon trying to take out the pen, I couldn't remove it with normal or slightly-higher-than-normal force. I didn't want to pull too hard at risk of damaging internals. Googled the issue, seems like others have had the issue in the past, with the resolution being unscrew the back and see if you can get the pen out that way, lo and behold, got the pen out and it worked without issue. Tried putting the pen back in through the side and can't get it out again. Upon inspection it looks like the internal latch is catching the lip right near the end of the pen. Contacted support and they said my computer was out of warranty (but I bought it last week and got it yesterday...). They're supposedly working to fix that right now, which they will then attempt to figure out my pen situation. I just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue before. Thanks!

Hi, It's me again with a new issue with my X1Y3. It just doesn't end does it?Previously I had issues with losing battery life despite the laptop being shutdown. I was recommended to turn off fast boot in Windows 10 which seems to have solved the issue relatively speaking. Now I'm noticing if I boot up the laptop after having had it shutdown for a few hours, it lights up the keyboard, makes a polyphonic beep at boot, gives a blank screen, then the keyboard backlight turns off. I then have to hold the power button down for a few seconds then press the button again for the laptop to boot normally. I've tried going through the threads that explain what each beep means. This beep does not fit into any of the listed beeps.  edit: I'd just like to add this tends to occur when the laptop is booted from battery only. If it's plugged in the issue doesn't seem to occur, at least for now.

Long story short. I had Lenovo replace my top case because the left click button wasn't working. Yes, they replaced the entire top case including keyboard and pointer. They did not replace the trackpad though.  So the keyboard that originally came with my laptop which was built in Nov 2018, was a lot stiffer. I was getting a lot of mistype due to me not applying enough pressure. This replacement keyboard though, oh my, it's perfect! The strokes are a lot softer and my typing accuracy went way up.  If you do not like your keyboard for some reason, you should maybe goto a Costco and bring your laptop to do a compare. I think they are not using the same supplier for some of these keyboards. I like my replacement one a lot more than the original one that came with the laptop.

However, I am troubled by a couple threads on these boards: Fan always on & killing battery: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-6th-gen-Fan-Noise/td-p/4053561  Unable to go into deep sleep on Linux (I'll be using Ubuntu 18.04 -- novice user): https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/X1-Carbon-Gen-6-cannot-enter-deep-sleep-S3-state-aka-S... Can anyone confirm if Lenovo has addressed the 2 above issues? I'll be ordering a new machine within the next 10 - 14 days but will pass on Lenovo if these issues still persist.

I've been trying to copy a large volume of files to the NAS.  Even though I have "Put the computer to sleep" set to "Never" when plugged in, it still sleeps after some time and the copying stops.  Very frustrating.  Anyone know the way to keep it awake?  I do have the screen blank, but that shouldn't affect it.  Stil, I temporarily change screen blanking to never in order to test. Event viewer says: The system is entering connected standbyReason: Idle Timeout. So the system doesn't seem to obey the user sleep setting!

Got my new P52s about 20 days ago. I was very excited at that time. Now,  I am very disappointed about my unit ( 32G RAM/ 1T SSD/ 4K screen & all features ): it is very noisy.  I have updated all softwares and firmware.  My T470s ( one year old ) is very quiet.  I thought T580 should be good too ( P52s is same as T580 ).  Since it is noisy, I haven't really use it yet.  Is it normal for this model ? Or, my unit is not good. Please give me suggestion. I believe that I have one week to make my decision: keep it, replace  it or chage to another model ( which 15 inch one is good ?).
