Hi, I have a T440p running Windows10 (64-bit home edition) that I purchased new a few years ago and about a year ago I believe after a Windows update I started having the battery not charging problem where the AC adapter is plugged into the laptop but the battery isn't charging, and in fact while booted up only the battery is recognized, not the AC adapter (although the opposite is true when running off the AC adapter only). If I am running off the AC adapter only and insert the battery while booted up the laptop will suddenly switch to the battery as its power source and it also simultaneously stops recognizing the AC adapter as being still plugged into the the laptop. Initially I thought after doing some research on the internet my original battery was perhaps too old and I wound up replacing the battery twice with no luck. I also tried changing my AC adapter to the more powerful 4.5 amp version which I thought might fix the problem but that hasn't helped unfortunately. The battery charges fine (for all 3 my batteries now) when the laptop is turned off on either the docking station or when the AC adapter is plugged in and the battery holds a 3-4 hour charge when it is fully charged so I don't think I have a hardware problem. After going back to the internet and doing some more research I saw a lot of the same suggestions, reinstall the battery and AC adapter drivers in Windows (with various suggestions on how the reinstallation should proceed), change the power settings in ...

Hello, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T440p, it had a Windows 7 x64 installed on it when i bought it (second hand).Everything worked just fine, but i removed it and installed Ubuntu 16.04 64bits Version instead.It booted and installed the distro and it all went smoothly, and the next day, i powerd on the netbook and a black screen comes up with an error message that reads "read error".

It's not comfortable to type nor to work with mouse. I know, that proc is 47W and also nvidia is there to bring up the heat, but all I'm doing is browsing on the internet and I have the nvidia disabled in Control panel -> devices.Is this normal? I've checked the temperature of the proc, and it's normal (around 52 - 56C), but it's not normal to me, that the surface is so hot.Anyone else also has this problem?

Before I buy and install an M.2 card, I wanted to ask just what do I need to know or do before and after the installation. The installation itself is basically simple but I'm not real sure how to set it up or what it can be used for? Do I really need it? I've read several articles about this and found more confusion. Some claim to use it as a boot drive for storing Windows, while others claim it is only good for existing drive cache. I'm wondering if adding the M.2 will even be of any use or improvement to me. Does anyone know anything about this? Please keep it like me, very simple. I'm not even sure which one to get for my T440p. I found this.. will it work fine? Lenovo SK hynix 128GB M.2 2242 PCIe NVMe SSD w/ 2280 Bracket, HFM128GDHTNGI won''t use the included 2280 bracket as it's not for my machine. Some of those terms are kinda foreign to me.

I've tried with the ThinkPad Drive Erase Utility but when I try to boot with it I only get the following error message:ERROR: This utility works for Disk Encryption Drive or Solid State Drive only. I've confirmed that the SSD functions normally, so it's odd that the erase utility won't recognize it.

Hi,I recently purchased a used T440p, more specifically a model 20AW-S0RK03. Unfortuntatly it arrived damaged and, naive as I was, I accepted a small partial refund and figured it wouldn't be too much on an issue to replace it...However, it seems that this part is rather difficult to obtain and furthermore I now realize that the palmrest for the T440p exists with several different internal designs (number/placement of screw holes etc.).If possible I would much prefer not having to disassemble it twice - once to figure out the part number and once again when the part arrives - so if anyone can inform me what part number I need for my specific model (20AW-S0RK03), then that would be a huge help.Any tips on where to buy (if allowed) will also be greatly appreciated. Note that I'm a student, so both cost and delivery time (I'm in Europe) needs to be considered.Thanks in advance. I really hope that someone can assist me with this tiresome situation.Rasmus

i5-4300M
i5-4330M
i7-4600M
i7-4700MQ

Hey guys, I have nooticed as of late that my computer "lags" after it has been left on for a while.

Basically every 3-5 second it hangs for a millisecond then is fine. It does it constantly. I have picture of my task manager, it shows these very odd spikes in the cpu. The following picture was taken at complete idle. I noticed that just before it hangs, my crss.exe proccess hops up to the second positon then back down if I sort by cpu column. I am guessing this is what is causing this pause. Things become normal after reboot though.

How can I fix this? What is the problem?

Recently I have bought an SSD. To be more specific, the Sandisk Ultra 2.

The problem is that my read and write performance for small files are not great (seen is picture 1).

After contacting support, they suggested a clean install, and now my numbers are even worse- both in ATTO and Crystaldiskmark. In addition, they are not consistent- the scores change a lot every time I try.

I am not an expert in SSDs, but the fact that my hard drive can get over half the scores in ATTO for small file transfers leaves me wondering why the improvement isn't bigger- as I didn't spend a lot of money to get a somewhat higher performance.

In addition, when I look at what reviews have gotten, I am concerned. For example, the speeds for 1 KB transfer in ATTO in reviews are:

AnandTech: ~80 mb/s read and ~80 mb/s for write
TweakTown: 90 mb/s read, and 84 mb/s write

I was told the way they test changes their results, but I would like to make sure.

As for Crystal Diskmark- whereas before the clean install only the 4k write performance was bad, now all my values are not great. And for the AS SSD benchmark, some of the numbers are not the highest and again I don't know why (this time the write access time is under a millisecond- before this attempt it was around 50 millisecond)

So my question is, do I have a faulty drive? Or is there some limiting factor on my computer (and the Sandisk Dashboard reports that I have SATA 3 ; 6 Gb/s connection... Read more

First off, I don't know much about computers and hopefully I posted this in the right place. If not, sorry.
I have a windows vista. 1 year old HP. Fast as hell. Internet fast. Good computer.

I play games but games aren't fun when you lag. or have lag spikes. Well, I use a program called game booster to play. It shuts off any unneeded programs in the background. It's a good program (i think)
Anyway, my question is. Is there a good program that works well with games. I didn't always lag btw. I know it's not internet problems. I scanned my computer with iobit. Then I realized that program wasn't good. I also use microsoft secruity essentials and AVG. I have ask my fellow gamers if my computer was sufficient enough to play games. They all said yes. I don't know what could be causing a lag spike every 10 secs. If i need to post up more details about my computer let me know. but I really think I just need a good program that scans my computer for any threats of any kind. I would be willing to pay money for a good security program of some sort thats compatibale with games. Old games I might add. like cod1

There is no wonder your gaming is laggy with a GT 610. GT 610 is not a gaming card. For gaming get yourself a 650 or better. I personally have a GTX 660. With a better graphics adapter you should be fine with the FX-6100. Make sure your power supply will support a better graphics adapter as well.

Performance on a Windows XP Professional system used by the accounting Department has been slowly degrading. I recently added a 100-Mbps network card, thinking that would correct the problem. To my knowledge, no other hardware has been added to the server, but I suspect someone has been adding software.

What steps should I do to determine what is causing the system to slow down? Which monitoring applications should I use and which computers they will be run?
 

A:Performance Problem or not?

First thing I would do is Alt-Ctrl-Del and look at what is running and what the resource utilizations are. Check the Performance Tab and see what's up. Look at the CPU utilization of the various Processes and Applications...see who the hog is!

Nvidia 7300LE 256MB
1GB DDR2

I played Fifa 08 on my friends computer. It ran smooth. He has a Pentium D 2.8GHz, Integrated graphics, 1GB ram.

I tried it on my computer, which has a nearly equivalent processor, and a graphic card (though a sucky one), and it was *crawling*. I ran it at Medium details, 800x600. I could never get past 30fps, and sometimes even 5-10.

Then I downloaded SisSoft Sandra. There I benchmarked my CPU.
Here's a screenshot:

What the HELL? This is some MAJOR problem. Less than half of what it should perform! How do I fix this problem and what can be the causes?! CPU Temp is 41 celcius idle, and <45 on load. I think those are pretty reasonable temps.

Please help.
EDIT: A few things I forgot to mention. I'm on Windows 7, with latest drivers of everything, include BIOS.

Hi guys,

Recently, I got myself another SSD which is Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB SSD 7mm. In the statement there, this should be faster than my previous one which is Plextor M5S 128GB SSD. However, I feel that the new drive is slower than my previous one as it has a longer boot.

My Mushkin SSD: http://www.mushkin.com/Digital-Storage/SSDs/MKNSSDCR480GB-DX-(4).aspx
My Plextor SSD: http://www.plextoramericas.com/index.php/ssd/px-m5s-series

Mushkin SSD: Read Speed up to 560MB/s, Write Speed up to 515MB/s, Random Read and Write Speed 90,000 IOPS.
Plextor SSD: Read Speed up to 520MB/s, Write Speed up to 200MB/s, Random Read Speed up to 71,000 IOPS, Random Write Speed 51,000 IOPS.

However, the benchmark is kind of different.

Mushkin SSD
Plextor SSD
Please help me with it. I am not sure what is the problem. Both of them are in AHCI mode.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Hello, there.  Recently, I found a very loud noise from the fan of my T440P.  I don't know what happened. Before, it sounds a little bit noisy but acceptable. Now, it sounds like a terrible vibration from the fan. I found the old post https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/Re-T440p-fan-terrible-noisy/td-p/1386373I am not sure if it's the same problem.  I checked the part number of mine by using the Serial Number, at http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookupI got a different result!!! I ordered my T440P from the online shop. It's Intel 4810MQ with GF 730M graphic card, but the result shows 4710MQ. so, i can't trust the current part number from that result.  btw, my t440p is Out of Warranty now...  what a bad luck

If you are getting noise and vibration from the fan, it is time for a new fan

Hello guys! I'm new here. I recently bought a laptop (model in the subject) and I noticed that over the keyboard was warm... After I check underneath the laptop, I noticed that was too hot! In low~medium use of the system, the average of the temperature is 56C! Is it normal? The cooler doens't spin but everytime that the system is booting up, I can hear the sound of the cooler spinning (like if was cheking if it's ok). This is odd. The other situation that the cooler spin is when I do some tests with Lenovo tool (stress test, to be precise). Should I contact the suport to check personaly what is happening with my laptop or is it normal? Awaiting for an instruction! Thanks in advance!! Alex

I have a T440P with BIOS version 2.24. I have tried flashing to the latest BIOS (2.5.1) several times using the update utility, but it never actually ends up working. The initial dialog boxes (i.e. warnings to not turn off computer, etc.) and command console will come up briefly, but then it shuts down the system and nothing is updated when I check upon reboot. Does anyone know why this is happening? I'm hoping that if I can get the BIOS to flash to this version, I won't have issues booting up (where I have to remove battery and CMOS battery to drain before booting up). Here's the log: [2018/12/23 1:59:18]OS = Windows 10 64bitDriver Loading....DoneSystem BIOS Version -> GLET70WWApplying BIOS Version -> GLET97WWSystem EC Version -> GLHT29WWApplying EC Version -> GLHT29WWAC adapter/Battery check....OK.BIOS Flashing....BIOS Flash completed.

Hi, I have Thinkpad T440p 20AWS08M09: i5-4300M(2.6GHz), 14in 1366x768 LCD, Intel HD Graphics.  I would like to upgrade it with FHD screen B140HAN01.2 (FRU PN 04X0436), whichexists in T440p FRU BOM list. 1:can every T440p machine type model (20AWS08M09,  etc.) be equipped with a FHD screen, or only specific models? The problem predicted by me can be related with the number of lanes (1 or 2). I don't know if cable on my machine has 2 lanes. How can I check it? 2:can you provide FRU for cable with 2 lanes?
