Lenovo T570 issues

Q: Lenovo T570 issues

Hi, I've purchased new Lenovo ThinkPad T570 with the following specs: CPU i7 7600UGPU 940MX32Gb RAM1Tb SSD PCIe (Samsung PRO 960)"15.6UHDLTEBatteries: 32Wh 4Cell Li-Ion front battery + ThinkPad Battery 3 Cell Li-Ion (24Whr) - up to 13.5 hrs according to OEM System setup: Win10 x64- All unnecessary apps are off/deleted (all background apps disabled)- No resource-consuming apps running (Skype and that's it)- Visual Windows effects are turned off- All possible background Windows services (such as error reporting, Cortana and etc. are off). I did not touch any services through msconfig though, they are at defaults.- Power type: Balanced- Screen brightness at 95% What I am experiencing from time to time is dimming screen (Power Options -> Advanced Settings -> Display - > Enable adaptive brightness is both OFF (on battery and plugged-in). 1. What can be the cause for dimming? 2. Other question - battery is holding maximum 5.5-6 hrs (no resource heavy tasks, only browsing, 1080p videos on youtube). How to optimize that? 3. Windows update or simple JAVA setup can trigger fan to start working heavily blowing basically cold air - very annoying. All newest drivers are installed. BIOS is updated to the latest version. Feedback is highly appreciated. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello, My company recently purchased a dual 4k setup for a work station. The setup is the following:2 ThinkVision P27 monitorsLenovo ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 DockT570 (Type: 20HA) I setup the monitors and docking station yesterday and was able to power the displays using a X1 Carbon 5th gen (i5 model type: 20HQ) thru USB-C without issue. I have a user testing out the desk now with a T570. I'm able to get one monitor to funtion at 4K and the other is running at 1080p. If you check display settings I'm unable to increase the resolution to 4K. I've updated all drivers on the T570 including the display driver and thunderbolt docking station driver this morning and the system still fails to power dual 4K. I brought back the X1 I used previously and it powers the screens normally. I checked the specs of the T570 and its identical to the X1 as far as processor is concerned and the model page claims the USB-C port on the T570 can power dual 4K. What else can I try?

Hi guyz )  I have encountered this quite unusual problem with my notebook. I have been using it for three months including the Bluetooth services (connecting devices, sharing files, etc.) but today I came home and the icon is gone and when I try to open the settings, there is no switch button for "Turn bluetooth On|Off" and all paired devices say, that "Bluetooth is turned off".   I have already checked some advices on the net saying I should reinstall my BT drivers, but when I open the Device Manager, there is not the item "Bluetooth radios". From this all it seems to me, my notebook somehow forgot it can use Bluetooth.  Any advice will be appreciated )

Not sure if right section. I'm leaning towards a T570 with an Intel vPro processor (i5-U model), however for the duration of warranty and what-not, does it mean that Lenovo Support can/will use it to help me solve potential problems faster? Or is it only for the use by my IT department (which i don't have), and won't help getting assistance from Lenovo Support? Thank you in advance for shedding light on this!

Good Morning. I have an issue with a T570 laptop's trackpoint BUTTONS. Machine is running Windows 7 Pro. When the "generic" Microsoft Compatible PS2 driver is installed, the Trackpoint and 3 Buttons work with no issues, however you lose all gestures on the touchpad. When any version of the Synaptics driver I can get my hands on is installed, the Trackpoint continues to work, however the 3 buttons die. The trackpoint check box in the UltraNav settings tab is checked. If I uncheck, the trackpoint stops working (as would be expected). Checking it again allows the Trackpoint to work but the buttons remain dead. Without being too long winded I do want to throw out there that this laptop is in an Enterprise environement and was imaged using a build from T560.If the Windows 7 OS that came from the factory is left on the machine, the Trackpoint buttons function with no issue.Note that the driver versions of both the MS Compatible PS2 driver and the Synaptics driver between the Factory image and the Enterprise image are the same. I'm sure the solution is buried in the registry somewhere, just not sure what to change or delete entirely to get the buttons reenabled. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

We just got a 570 in today.  It's got an i5 7500u, don't know the storage capacity because it's a demo unit that was lended to us for a few weeks.  When I boot into the BIOS it doesn't show any drives.  When I use boot manager it only has PCIe LAN or Windows Boot Manager.  When selecting Windows Boot Manager nothing happens it goes back to that screen.  I can boot to WDS (where we have an image for the 570 with the 6500u) and it didn't see any volume.  I thought okay that's fine I'll boot from a Windows 10 USB.  I get the exact same issue.  I've messed around with secure boot, changed legacy and uefi settings.  The only thing I haven't done is open the machine up to see if there's even a drive inside.  Anybody have any other options I could try?

HI, I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T570 hooked up with the Lenovo LS2251 Wide monitor via HDMI to DVI adapter. The computer recognizes the monitor but the screen is blank (monitor also recognizes a digital signal but switch back to VGA input). The connection works properly with other Lenovo 19 inch monitors (ie tested on L197 Wide) and with my 42 inc LCD TV, but when trying to get the display on my LS2251 Wide it doesnt work. I also tryed to connect it to another Lenovo 22 inch monitor (ie LT2252p) which doesnt work as well. The only difference is that this time the monitor isn't eaven recognized by the T570. Both monitors worked well when they were connected to my older Lenovo Thinkpad via same HDMI to DVI adapter. All drivers are up-to date as well. Please help.

When my T570 restarts, sometimes it stacks at the logo screen like forever. I have to press the power button to kill the power off then it can be Stared normally. Another problem: The X key on my keyboard doesn?t work well, I have to press hard to input letter X. Any suggestions of this? Do I need to replace the whole keyboard?  I am kind of disappointed on Lenovo quality control, how a big company let this small issue happen...

We've got a T570 that we're going to use for a standard image but we have just one minor problem.  The home page is set to our intranet page, but whenever we click on the home button in IE (we have to use IE) it opens an additional Lenovo home page tab.  You can hover over the home page button and it's got our intranet page.  You can click the down arrow next to it and it's got our intranet page.  When you check the IE settings you cannot find Lenovo anywhere in the homepage area.  Just not sure why it might be doing this and if there's maybe some registry key or something we're missing.  We're also running Windows 7 Pro.

I used Lenovo Settings on my Lenovo Yoga 3 11 for the battery conservations mode. So I was forced to install Lenovo Companion since it recently replaced Lenovo Settings.Ever since I did this, I have noticed the following:* Screen brightness keeps changing by itself slightly* Screen contrast keeps changing by itself slightly* Colours look muted and unsaturated, and filtered. Makes the sceen look worse than it should.* trackpad is only ignorred if the tablet mode is fully flat. The slightest opening causes the trackpad and keyboard to become sensitive. All of this irrespective of whether Dynamic Brighness Control is enabled or disabled in Lenvovo Companion hardware settings, and regarless of whether recommended hardware settings are used.Anyone else noticed anything similar? I'll report back after I've uninistalled the app to see whether any of these behaviours disappear.

A:Noticed issues ever since I installed Lenovo Companion (which replaced Lenovo Settings)

So I deactivated "Change brightness autoatically when lighting changes" in Windows Display Settings. This seems to have been the cause of the brightness and contrast changes, but the colours still look blander than I recall. Sorry to suspect Lenovov Companion so quickly, but the changes coincided with it's installation. Admittedly Windows 10 Fall edition just landed too.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi HC,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
For brightness issue, I would recommend for you to download and install the latest chipset & energy management driver & check if the issue still persist or not.
 
For not sleep issue, Can you try turning ON or OFF the Hybrid Sleep
Here's how you'll get to the settings.
When you put the computer to sleep, is the power button blinking?
- Link to picture
 
If not, this is probably the reason why the machine is not waking up from sleep because it's not asleep in the first place. In this case, reboot the machine, perform a clean boot and observe (this is to isolate any processes running in the background that's possibly interfering with the sleep process).
 
Other things that you can try:

Check this Recommended Settings for Sleep
Turn off Fast Start-up

 
For HDMI issue, please check by performing the Flee-Power in the computer then re-install then connect the HDMI and check by pressing Winkey+P select ?Projector Only? option. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
Open your Lenovo Energy management and turn off the Hard Drive power Saver option.

Hello.I've had my Lenovo G50-70 for quite some time now, once aquired as a christmas gift. Nowadays i use it for gaming, but sadly i've also had certain issues with it. For example, one already adressed in the fourms, screws randomly falling off the computer. It was too late when i noticed this, so now i've lost 4 out of the 10 screws in the back plate of the machine. Also, an issue with the battery, because of wich, i have to put the computer into hibernate in order for it to charge. This one i suspect could be just because of usage.Something i came across while searching about my problems was the fact that the model itself was discontinued.So my questions are:- ¿What caused the discontinuation of the product, and is it somehow related to my personal issues?- As far as i know, my warranty has expired (1 or 2 years ago, actually), so, ¿could i somehow renew it, or proceed in an action of such kind about my product?Thanks.

Everything worked on the laptop but not the USB ports. I intalled every single driver i could find for the laptop and till no working USB ports. I then intalled Windows 8.1 and still nothing My last option was to go for windows 7, but still it did not work. The usb ports work when booting from them but as soon as i boot into windows they stop. Why would this be?? Maybe i dont have supporting drivers? Also i must also just say the Laptops battery is dead as can be and maybe thats a reason why ports dont work, i really dont know and i have read every page i could find and still i cant solve my problem Sooooo . . . . any help or advice would be great Regards

hi faddyie,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
About the heating issue, It may be just normal, just make sure the computer has enough ventilation underneath when you use it.
   Im more concern about the keyboard being pushed it when you press a key.
 I strongly suggest you bring the computer where you bought it and have them look at the issue as this may seem to be a hardware issue.
 
Regards

A:T570 - Ram Upgrade (no longer available?)

Probably, the one from Lenovo is temporarily out of stock.  In general, any RAM with similar specs will work, although there are occasional compatibility problems, especially with RAM described as "Value RAM".  I always suggest that people check the seller's return policy on any RAM they are buying.  I tend to buy whatever is cheapest.

I have been using this new T570 for just over a week and have noticed some really upsetting discomfort. After only a few minutes, my eyes become fatigued and I start to experience a strange chilling unpleasantness. The first time this happened, I ended up with a migraine for the rest of the day and got sick.  As a disclaimer, I have normal (20/20) vision and I have never experience any negtaive side effects of using a computer, laptop or phone before. My main driver before getting this machine was a Samsung Tab S2 (AMOLED) and occasionally a normal desktop. I also own an LG G6 (LCD). This tells me that it is not simply the technology of LCD or AMOLED that is making me sick.  I believe the T570 is an LED powered LCD screen (not sure though). This one is FHD with a matte filter.  I have looked up things like PWM but this issue seems to occur whether or not the screen is full brightness.  It took me a week to acknowledge that the issue is actually coming from the screen. I am currently using this with it plugged in to an external monitor and haven't had any negative side effects. Does anyone know what the problem could be? BTW, I also tried changing the resolution (didn't help) and zooming in to 175% (which I thought helped but it didn't). Is this just how these screens are made?Is it somehow bc of the matte finish (hard to believe) or the FHD (really hard to believe)?Is this a defective screen?Did I get stuck with a laptop that had a...

Is it possible to have an SSD together with a HDD in the T570? I spoke to a sales rep in Australia who assured me it was possible, but advised me to contact technical support about the details; I was informed by technical support that it was not at all possible. Plugging an SSD into WWAN slot was specifically excluded by the tech rep as an option. I am asking this because in my T500, with which I have been happy for many years, I had a 256GB SSD for my OS and programs and a 1TB HDD (in the Ultrabay) for my files; the latter could be conveniently removed for transport when necessary. This set-up was not possible in the T560, for which reason I have delayed replacing my T500.

My T570 started intermittently not being able to get past the Lenovo boot screen a few days ago and by two days later, I was not able to get in at all. I tried everything I could find on the forums here including testing the ssd in another laptop and putting another ssd in (the ssd seems to be fine). When I go into the bios, the ssd is not recognised. I have reset the bios to default settings too. I have looked at the connection to the motherboard and it seems to be okay visually. The last time I was able to log into windows, the desktop background image was partly distorted, I'm not sure if thats related. Any assistance in trying to figure this out would be greatly appreciated. The T570 specs are:Part No: 20H9CTO1WWConfiguration Details?  Intel Core i5-7300U Processor (3M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)?  Windows 10 Pro 64?  Windows 10 Pro 64 English?  15.6" UHD (3840x2160), non-Touch, no WiGig, WLAN, WWAN?  4GB DDR4-2133 SODIMM?  NVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB GDRR5?  Hardware dTPM?  Keyboard with Number Pad - English?  Integrated Fingerprint Reader?  Fingerprint Reader?  Hardware dTPM2.0 Enabled?  IR & 720p HD Camera with Microphone?  128GB Solid State Drive, SATA3?  Smart Card Reader?  4 Cell Li-Polymer Battery 32WH?  6cell Battery 48Wh Rear?  65W AC Adapter - US...
