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.)

Hi All I have just updated the Bios on my 2016 Lenovo X1 Carbon and now the splash screen which normally shows Lenovo in all black with white text has now got a RED box around the Lenovo text. Anyone else have this? Type: 20FB-003TUK (6th Gen) Regards Stu

Hi All
 
i'm trying to turn on TPM via a task sequence set whilst building the machine via SCCM 2012
 
I have included the following cmd as a step in the task sequence:
 
cscript.exe SetConfig.vbs SecurityChip Active
 
then use a 2nd step in the task sequence to enable  bit locker encryption and use TPM.
 
Now step 2 works fine as we have used this on our previous HP laptops, but it will not work on the lenovo's Am i missing something in the first step of the task sequence?

Hi All So im looking to build my new X1 carbon with Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit, i have the iso on a bootable USB pen, but i cannot get the system to boot from the usb with secure boot on. I would like to take advantage of the UEFI boot, i can turn off the secure boot and it will build as normal, but after installing all the drivers, i put UEFI secure back on and it wont do anything. Am i missing something here? Regards Stu

Greetings, 
 
To make a long story short, needed a computer ASAP as was in a pinch! Bought a monster of a PC on craiglist, used it for its computing power and got the job done.. Computer was never turned on again, THIS WAS OVER A YEAR AGO..
To be honest I completely forgot about it until I stumbled across it again in a dusty corner..
 
To get a solid ROI on this pc I want to start using it but have some concerns before I start using it as my daily driver.. 
 
 
1. How do I confirm/verify there is no spyware, keyloggers installed on this machine?  Worried the kid who sold it to me may have installed RAT's or other malicious spying type of software on it...
 
 
2. Is there a way or program to that will check the HDD's life or health status?  This machine has 2 HDD's on it, main is 350gb and secondary is 500gb's.  I would like to dump my lifes work from 3 external USB drives(50gb, 80gb, and 120gb) onto this machine for safe keeping/backup and then reformat my external drives, and dump the "cleaned" up data back on to them. 
 
 
3. I think thats pretty much it right?  Unless yall can think of something else i need to know/do? 
 
 
 
Please advise!
 
 
oNe
 
 
p.s.  O/S is Windows 7 but that pesky Win 10 update keeps flashing and so I clicked on it and who knows by tomorrow morning it may be on WIN 10..  fingers crossed!

I have ordered the X1 Carbon 7th generation model 3 times so far, exactly like in this article:https://www.tomshardware.com/news/lenovo-laptop-quality-control-issues,37510.html The first time: the touchpad coating was defective.The second time: a mushy keyboard with the letter keys giving out different sounds.The third time (and I still have this unit): The keyboard is back to normal, but the touchpad now gives out sounds like in the cheapest junk out there. The screen hinges are so stiff that there is no way of opening the laptop with one hand, whereas in the second unit I ordered it was possible. My question is if the owners of this model are able to open their laptops with one hand? I now know this is possible in some units but I am wondering if it was just luck the last time or if this should be a standard feature? PS I'm just desperate to have an ok quality laptop on which I can instal linux, that's why I have been reordering it, but frankly I think at this price point it's a joke. Shame on you Lenovo!

Hello,I am using X1 Carbon 2016 with OneLink+ and 27 inch 4K Dell monitor. It works all right with 60Hz.I would like to know, if it is possible to connect two 4K 60Hz monitors to the system?I understand, that OneLink+ supports two 4K monitors only with 30Hz and this is out of question. I need 60Hz on both of them. So, can I connect one through OneLink+ and another to MiniDP on notebook itself? Theoretically, it seems OK, because Intel HD 520 graphics itself supports two 4K 60Hz monitors and OneLink+ 30Hz limitation is related to speed only (if I am right). Would be grateful for any advice.

I have recently visited Lenovo service center to fix an issue with my fault keypad, as my laptop is under extended warranty a new keypad was fixed as a resolution. Service executive reported that the hinge has a problem and need to get it fixed before getting worse. After fixing the new keyboard the hinge issue became more annoying as the left hinge thread completely released and now when I re-visited the store and inquired for a fix they informed that hinge repair will not cover under warranty and forwarded a quotation for 10000 rs approx to replace the lower and upper case completely. Its hardly 2 years that I used my laptop and ran into multiple issues, before replacing the keyboard the threads are available and has a minor issue but after fixing it, threads got completely released and started making sounds, the same has been reported but there is no proper response from the executives.

They charge me USD 80. They said it will not be covered under warranty. In my view, they have made plastic support , instead of metal. Any justice ?

Again, not sure why Lenovo is so hard headed? Resuing to listen to what the MAJORITY of people want. * No OLED displays? How long do we have to wait for this? 2020? * SD Mini slot in the back? Very inconvient. No one is going to use it. (regular SD card on the side works better).* CTRL and FN button still in the wrong location. Why again do we have to fix it in bios when Lenovo can easily make it right? No SD card on my 2015 is the most annoying thing ever. Yes I have a stupid USB SD reader but c'mon. What's the point of thin and light if we have to carry a bunch of add-ons. Especially when the SD card slot doesn't even take up any space. Stupid move. Lenovo is losing sales and customers and it's due to them being out of touch with consumers.

The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop for Lenovo? I doubt that. I think it sells very well for Lenovo. You say the majority of people want an SD card reader? Many mobile systems donīt have one anymore, and they still sell. This is a niche requirement, and Lenovo, who is a company with a wide lineup, has other models to fullfill that need. Aka the ThinkPad T460s, which is dimension and weight wise almost exactly the same as your X1 Carbon 2015, but with an SD Card reader, Ethernet, upgradeable RAM etc.

Dear all,I recently got a new carbon X1 2016 version and I would like to connect it to my display at work (samsung U24E590, 4K) and my TV at home (Panasonic, 4K). As especially my TV doesn't have a display port, I would like to connect over HDMI. In the manual, it says that HDMI connection allows resolutions up to 4096x2160px. However, when I connect my Samsung display, I get only options up to 1920x1080px in display settings (win 10, x64). I downloaded and installed the newest Intel HD Graphics 520 driver from the Lenovo support page. How is it possible to use full 4K resolution over HDMI connection? Anybody an idea? If possible without any expensive adapters etc. Many thanks for your help!

I've been trying to find a solid review on the internet comparing these two X1 systems head to head, but no luck so far. The touchscreen and stylus capabilities of the X1 Yoga are nice but not absolutely necessary. I'm worried if the build quality and reliability matches that of the X1 Carbon (X1 Yoga has more moving parts, raising keyboard platform, more mobility in hinges, laptop mode changes reliability, touchscreen reliability, etc), in light of ongoing Lenovo quality control issues. Not that the X1 Carbon is without issues of its own. If the touch and pen capabilities are a "nice to have" feature for someone and not required, are they more trouble then they're worth, given quality issues? Or are the concerns overblown? Would also like to know if the QHD screens used in both systems are identical in terms of brightness, color accuracy, and viewing angles. Same screen manufacturer? Do both keyboards have the same key travel and quality of feel while typing? Would be great if there was a review comparing both directly. Has anyone had hands-on experience with both? Thanks!

 I recently picked up an X1 Carbon with a WQHD screen while travelling in the US.  On first boot, I noticed a column of dead pixels and promptly put in a service ticket for the issue.  As with my previous Lenovos, I buy the 3yr NBD Onsite service. Anyhow, the LCD was backordered and after a week (yesterday) the screen was replaced.  Here is where the problem starts. The original screen in the machine was:LP140QH1-SPF2 The replacement screen installed is:LP140QH1-SPF1 Both screens carry the same Lenovo part number 00HN877, but they are drastically different in quality. The original screen was paper white and very bright where I was using it indoors at 80% and in my vehicle at full brightness without issue. The replacement has whites that are yellowish and when at full brightness it is not as bright at the original screen was at 80%.  It is very dim and difficult to use outdoors. I have spent over $3k CAD for this ultrabook and I am not happy about the difference in replacement screen model.  Is there a way I can get the correct screen back in my machine?

I just received my x1 carbon, just a day before relocating to Spain. I didn't have time to check it out thoroughly before I left, but everything seemed fine. When trying it out upon arrival I imediately noticed a rattling sound from the touchpad. Just tapping the touchpad lightly produces noise, not to mention doubble tapping which is aweful. The touchpad seems to be centered and in level with the rest, but doesn't appear to be screwed on properly. A lenovo store here in Madrid only had the cheaper models, but the touchpads on these where all firm like a macbook. I'm a little hesitant about calling the spanish lenovo service as my spanish is severily limited atm. Has enyone else experienced this? Thanks.

Seems there are some design issues and manufacturing defect with the way Lenovo Egde 2-in 1 touch screen works. The right hinge somehow has come loose and then it forces the screens to separate. When you close the laptop it seems to aggravate the situation.  I have certainly not dropped it and mishandled it. Searching on the internet it seems to a very common issue. Wondering how should I go about getting this fixed. Does anybody have some fix and something? is there a recall? Its a fairly new laptop with good specs. See attached pictures.everything still worksClosing it seems to split the screenskeep the laptop open at all time to prevent it from falling apart.The laptop screen is seperating due to hinge issue.

I have been having an absolutely MISERABLE expereince dealing with Lenovo with this computer.  About 2 weeks ago, the left hinge on my pc notebook began sticking and with routine opening and closing, which has forced the separation of the casing from the screen.  It was under waranty until 12/28/2016.  I placed my first call on 12/27/2016 to get the process going and have gotten nothing but a runaround with each call to India I make.  Each time, I get a guarantee that I will get a call back within "3 business days" to no avail.  I am told that my case is escalated and I should expect an email from a "case manager" and should get an email within 24 hours, and NOTHING.  I have taken out an extended warratny with Lenovo based off the suggestion of my call on 12/27/16 in order to get in home assistance, and nobody want to aknowledge anything to help with this case.  Any help that anyone can provide to help expedite this process, whether it be a strategy to get someone in America to actually call me back, another number beyond the one on the website to spreak to someone "higher up," etc.  I am beyond frustrated with this case and am about done with Lenovo...
