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.

Good day.
 
Please see page 51 of the HMM: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x1p1_x1_extreme_hmm_en.pdf
 
Memory modules and SSDs are listed as CRUs. Looks like only the bottom cover needs to be removed to access them.
 
Hope this helps a bit.

Hi everyone, I've just add a RAM module (ballistix sport lt bls16g4s26bfsd) to my X1 Extreme laptop and I have a 'problem' with the frequency of the RAM.Its a 2666 Mhz capable RAM module but it shows as a 2400 Mhz in the task manager.I've read that I have to use xmp profile in the Bios to set the frequency of the RAM module but I can't see option for that in the Bios..Any idea on how to set the frequency of the RAMat 2666 Mhz ? Many Thanks Narek

I have an X1 Extreme plugged into a Thunderbolt 3 Dock (40AN0230US).  Whenever the screen locks it cuts off audio.  I like this. Prevents sound coming from a computer that is locked.  However, when I unlock the computer, the only way to get the sound back it to restart the whole system.  This I don't like.I have 2 monitors (ThinkVision P27H's) plugged  in using Display Port and the audio is playing from one of the monitors.  The monitors are listed in the audio panel, but neither will provide any sound on unlock.  If I change the volume it lags terribly and eventually freezes.  I can switch to internal audio.I have:1) Reinstalled audio and display drivers on the computer.2) Reinstalled thunderbolt drivers on the computer3) Updated the dock's firmwareBut the problem persists.  Any ideas of what to try next besides getting a replacement?  Every item - even the cables - in the chain are supplied by Lenovo.  Should work flawlessly in my estimation.

the X1E i ordered had one primary NVMe M.2 drive and I went and purchased another M.2 NVMe drive from another vendor upon receiving my machine and trying to install the additional drive, I discovered that the SSD would not lay flat seemingly because it's a double-sided SSD.   I have not seen anywhere that says the X1E must utillize a single-sided SSD and the user guide provides no clarification.  i have contacted lenovo via chat and also technical support via telephone and they've been of no help.   when it says M.2 form factor you would assume that any M.2 drive would work but apparently it does not.  if I have to return the drive I'll be out $60 for shipping and restocking fee.   am I missing something here?   i'd be very disappointed if I have to return the drive and get dinged $60.  If indeed it only takes single-sided drives, how would an average user/customer know that?

For anyone wondering, you can upgrade an X1 Extreme to a 144Hz display!I have a 1080p X1 Extreme, so I needed to buy the 40-pin display cable for the X1 Extreme. The FRU you need is: 01YU747On the X1 Extreme, the display bezel is glued on and isn't meant to be replaced, so you'll need one of those as well. FRU: 01YU734If you have the 4K X1 Extreme, you won't need a display cable, but you will probably need a different back cover and display bezel won't fit in the cover designed for the 4K panel.I used an AU Optronics B156HAN08.0 1080p 144Hz IPS display. Brightness was a bit disappointing; only around 250 nits (the stock BOE panel in the X1 Extreme is ~320 nits).Unfortunately my 144Hz display has a cosmetic defect, so I didn't install it in the laptop. However, I was able to confirm that both Hybrid (panel connected to the Intel GPU) and Discrete (panel connected to the 1050 Ti) modes worked at 144Hz, and that brightness control worked correctly.

See subject.  Ever since the BIOS upgrade, the dock no longer crashes.  Two days running now with no problems; prior to the upgrade it would crash routinely when connecting via USB-C.  I had to employ the unsavoury workaround of connecting the laptop to a charger and connecting it to the dock via the USB-A port using the USB-A to USB-C adaptor supplied.  Now I'm connecting via USB-C cable only. In fact, I'd given up on using the dock at all and had it just sitting there.  I decided to give it another go after reading that BIOS v1.19 fixed instances of BSODs occuring when connected to an external monitor (which I did experience now and again when connecting to an external monitor via HDMI i.e. not via dock).    Dock Type : 40AFX1E Type : 20MF

Dear all, I would like to upgrade the touchscreen on the Thinkpad Yoga 260 - I have the 1366x768 model (a long and annoying story!) and I really want the 1080 screen - for obvious reasons. I am relatively technically competent (I'm a tinkerer) and have carried out these sorts of procedures on other laptops in the past. Which brings me to my question... Having upgraded the screen on a T450 and run into the problem of the display driver not accepting the new screen (some issue relating to EDIDs, or something like that) (https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/3t3z1d/lenovo_t450_lcd_replacement_cant_change_brightness... Am I going to encounter the same problem with the Yoga 260? Or potentially worse given that there are touch-screen issues involved too? Looking around at replacement panel assemblies they instruct not to use if the present resolution is wrong (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12-5-FHD-LCD-LED-Touch-Screen-Assembly-for-Lenovo-ThinkPad-Yoga-260-1920X1...) - it is just these particular panels, or am I screwed? Any success stories would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tim

Hi everyone! For anybody still wondering if it's possible to change your uninspiring TN screen to an FHD IPS one, I can assure you that it's 100 % possible. I did it and it's miles better! Check the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-koOqj2ii4 I got myself a wide gamut model that covers the srgb range (Model : AUO B156HAN01.1). Perfect for Photoshop and video editing! It's just a tad darker than the TN one but for the colors and the black levels, it's absolutely worth it. Bought it brand new for 104 $ CAD, shipping included from laptopscreen.com if anyone wonders. I would like to note that this will only for for W540's already installed with a FHD screen. This will not work for HD screen owners as the cable connector is different. Hope that helps someone! Emil

Hi I bought a X1 Extreme last week and it's driving me nuts already. The notebook simply does not charge. When I plug-in the power adapter, Windows says that the power supply is plugged-in. But the battery status doesn't change, in both ways (it's not charging but also not discharging). It just stays at the current charging status for hours. I also have Lenovo dockingstation "ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock 170W" and it's the same problem. After a research on the internet, I found the following article which actually helps, but only for a single charge. But as soon as I unplug the power supply again, I have to reboot again, turn of the battery in the BIOS and reconnect the power supply again. https://stebalien.com/blog/fix-for-lenovo-x1-carbon-not-charging/ The drivers are all up to date (installed via Lenovo System Update application). Does anybody suffer from this issue aswell? Thanks for your help!

I purchased an X1 Extreme (4K) a few months ago. I have run into a few issues and was hoping I could get some advice. For reference, I have observed these issues across multiple different Windows versions, GeForce driver versions, and Lenovo BiOS versions. I am happy to answer any follow-up questions in the comments. 1.When I have hybrid graphics enabled, I have observed significant stutter when scrolling in applications such as Google Chrome, Spotify, and more, especially when opening PDFs in Chrome. Turning off hybrid graphics resolves fixes this, but I was wondering if there was another option I had other than compromising my battery life by disabling hybrid graphics.2.When I keep the TrackPoint enabled, it occasionally begins moving the cursor on its own and keeps going for a few seconds, with no apparent way to regain control until it stops. While I can fix this by just turning off the TrackPoint, I enjoy using it and would like to know if there is a different solution to this issue. Thank you in advance!

I read on another forum (cant remember where) that sometimes the internal video cable needs to be upgraded  and this is out of my scope , I dont want to brick the machine and have to sent it to a repair shop .Machine Type Model x26020F5S1Y60N Thanks
