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.)

That device ID is for the Intel I219-V ethernet card, so that driver seems to be missing from the package. Are you able to add just the LAN driver manually?

Dear Sirs:

I am having two problems, maybe three.

The first is I can't get a sound card installed. The second is I can't get a third 256 memory chip to work. I am using Windows ME which has the latest upgrades installed. FIC Motherboard PA2013 2 meg. cache. AMD K6-2 550 CPU, only a video board, cable modem, and sound card installed.

1. Sound Card not loading - I have tried three difrent sound cards, both PCI and APG, I have uninstalled all sound card drivers and let windows pick drivers and I have used the manufactures latest drivers. (Creative - Sound Blaster 16). When checking the Device Manager for the sound card, I get the message "This devicer is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installe. (Code 10)"

"Try upgrading the device drivers for this device."
I notice futher down in the Device Manager list under "System Devices" I have another problem - yellow circle with ! in it on the following- "VIA Tech 82C586B (PIPC) PCI to ISA bridge" Under properties for this is the message "Windows could not load the driver for this device because the computer is reporting two ISAPNP.VXD bus types. (Code 2)"

"Contact your computer manufacture to get an updated BIOS for your computer."

I have flashed the BIOS with the lates driver aviable from FIC. JI438

I don't know if this is related to the sound problem or not, but I have never had any problem with the sound card... Read more

Hallo, wir haben bei uns im Unternehmen nun mehrere Thinkpad L460 angeschaft und möchten diese nun mit Windows 7 x64 installieren, jedoch erhalten wir über USB Stick und CD jeweils die Meldung das ein Laufwerkstreiber fehlen würde. Selbst wenn wir das die Treiber mit auf das Medium laden wird keiner davon als der richtige erkannt. Über SCCM was eigentlich unser Ziel ist, kommen wir trotz des hinterlegten SCCM Treiberpakets gar nicht erst bis zur Betriebssystemauswahl. Windows 10 von z.B. einem USB Stick funktioniert ohne Probleme.

Does anybody here have a L460 that can't power on?I was installing Win7 and it was running on battery.Then it shut down by itself (I think the battery went flat).After that I plugged in the power adaptor and the laptop has no reaction at all after I pressed the power button.I googled a bit and tried the hold-power-button-for-30-secs-w/o-battery trick but to no avail.And I understand L460 has no emergency reset hole for me to poke too?Is there anything else that I can try? Thanks!!!(Btw, this is a new unit that I just purchased 2 weeks ago.)

Hi everyone,  I hope someone can advise please. I have a Thinkpad L460 which is has a warranty that runs until August 2019. Would I be aloud to upgrade it either myself or via Lenovo Service Partner without affecting my warranty?. I believe in my model there is a Western Digital HD installed and would be happy to swap it out for a WD SSD, although there does seem to be better out there as I would only need a 128gb SSD or thereabouts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as it seems quite a straightforward process by buying the SSD with a cloning kit. Thanks in advance, scotty66

Hi Scotty66,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you have query regarding upgarding yours L460 SSD from HDD.
I guess it will not void the warranty as its CRU parts unless you are not damaging the product/parts while replacing it.
And here's the partlist for L460 as well as HMM guide which can walk you through the replacement of the parts.
 
I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

So, recently I ordered a ThinkPad L460 for my mom as she needs a new laptop. Since she doesn't need the camera, I thought it would be fine to leave it out. Then some time after ordering, I realized that on my T560 the microphone is right next to the camera. This then made me wonder if a L460 without the camera will have a microphone at all. Having no microphone would be an issue when using Skype, as an external mic would be then required. L460 Platform Specifications only states the camera as optional, suggesting that the microphone would always be included. Hardware maintenance manual states under LCD FRUs: Camera/microphone module, camera module, or microphone module (available on some models), which also to me would suggest that a microphone only setup would also be possible. Can anyone answer whether a L460 ordered without a camera will actually have a microphone?

I was thinking if it would be possible to replace my original L460 keyboard with T460 backlit keyboard since the layouts and connectors seem to be excatly the same. However I have not had a chance to compare them in real life so my info only comes from what i have seen in internet... Im pretty sure that someone has already tried this so it would be nice to know if it can be done as im just a poor student and im not willing to pay 60 euros for a keyboard that might not even fit in my laptop. Also standard non-backlit T460 and L460 keyboards have different part numbers in Lenovo listings so im curious, are they actually different?

Hello everyone,it's been almost a week I'm trying to activate the fingerprint reader at power-on on my L460 laptop with no success, I can only have fingerprint at Windows logon but then I can't find how to activate it for power on and hd password. Here is what I did so far, installed the driver provided in the support page for my laptop, Validity Fingerprint Common Driver v. 4.5.327, but there I can only register my fingerprints and automatically Windows logon gets activated, but it doesn't give any further option and there is no way to activate power on and hd password, or I'm missing something?? The manual about the fingerprint reader says:"To enable fingerprint authentication, enroll your fingerprints first. During the enrollment, the fingerprints are associated with the Windows password automatically" And this works flawlessly Then it adds:"To associate your fingerprints with your power-on password and hard disk password, manually create a connection" BUT HOW????? I've also tried to install some other lenovo softwares like Fingerprint Manager both standard and Pro version, but they can't connect to the fingerprint reader and give an error message.

Hi there everyone.

After speaking to various end users and business users I opted for an L460 and make contact with a Lenovo Partner here in the UK who were quite frankly fantastic to deal with and a credit to the industry. So, after a few days of using my machine and a couple of little niggly issues I am notified that on video calls my voice is dropping out, I update all the drivers to no avail and then contact Lenovo/IBM support who agree it is a hardware issue and arrange an engineer visit for the next day. This is where the real drama start and eveything I am posting did actually happen with no embelishment from myself. Engineer call to notify that he would be with me in 20 minutes...great, we are off to a good start. Engineer arrives, lovely guy and when he sees my ThinkPad informs me "I have never taken apart one of these in my life" to which I ask "why not" and he informs me that he has been moved over from being a systems engineer and this is his first job.

Hi, i have a new Thinkpad L460 since a week and saw there is a BIOS update available (1.18). Currently i have version 1.17. Since i am using Linux and have no optical drive i downloaded the"BIOS bootable update CD" (no idea why it says for Windows 10, after all its just a CD-ISO image) and converted it to an image that i can copy to an USB flash stick. So far so good. The first thing i noticed was it does not boot from the USB flash stick unless i disable secure boot. With secure boot on it returns right to the list of bootable devices you get by pressing F12.With secure boot off i was able to get to the BIOS update utility. I pressed "2" to update the BIOS and after a lot of Y's and Enter's it started the flashing. Then it showed ?Secure Flash Authentication failed?. I stumbled upon this -> https://support.lenovo.com/de/en/documents/ht103667and disabled ?Secure RollBack Prevention?. But that did not do anything. Still ?Secure Flash Authentication failed?. So for now i am not able to update the BIOS.

and I been upgrading my system for the past couple of months. within limit (cash being the main issue).

according to everything I read, my system should be able to handle the ram I added with no problem.

I recently got a new laptop, the lenovo 3000 N500. My dad was working getting everything set up, but then when he tried to get the internet set up, it just wouldn't connect. Not just that, it wouldn't even reconize the router, (which is D-link), but oddly enough it will find the internet of the people next door. It does have vista, and other people i know have been having the same problems, but have eventually been able to figure it out. I know my dad has gone to the windows trouble shooting, he tried hooking the router via cord, etc etc. Any suggestions on what to do? It's really frustrating.

A:Internet not being reconized

Tell me about it! Just google "vista browser problem" and you get an uncountable number of descriptions of problems that sound suspiciously similar. Frankly I'm fed up with Vista and am strongly inclined to get rid of it in favour of a decent operating system like Ubuntu, that won't render a reasonably powerful laptop unusably slow, that has an unobtrusive and genuinely user friendly package manager and update system, decent security, and is completely free besides. Microsoft doesn't seem to have recognised that one of the many updates they insist on wasting everyone's time with has actually screwed up their internet browsers.

Sorry, I know this doesn't help, but just know I'm feeling your frustration right now too.

For lack of anything better to do, I'm currently systematically going through the history of updates and uninstalling and restarting, until something works. If that doesnt work quite soon then I'm actually going to back up, format and install Linux.

I searched several forums and found many possible fixes but none worked. I then decieded to try to hook it up to a powered hub and the drive was reconized at once.

I have a 2.5 external hd ,usb. It works well on one computer but not on the other. It did in the past I've changed nothing that I know. My computer does recognize my card reader, and light glows when I plug in. I've swapped hard drive in case but same results? Any help would be wonderful.

USB Connectivity Requirements

To achieve proper USB connectivity six basic system elements must be present and working correctly.

1) Support from the BIOS

2) Support from the Operating System

3) Physical USB ports

4) A USB Device

5) The correct USB cable for the device

6) Drivers either from the OS and/or the peripheral maker

Hi All,

I have the problem that windows cannot access any DVD/CD Player on 1 PC.

I know a couple of solutions but this didnt solve it and I dont want to spend 6-7 hours to install and configure the system again.

What I have tried already:

1. Uninstalled all medialayers, burn software, codecs and all other programs that can let the DVD drives stop working.
2. A deep Vrus/Spyware scan (nothing found).

After this I cleaned my system with a crap cleaner and rebooted.

3. Checked the registry settings of the DVD drives for the upper/lower filters.
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-SYSTEM-CurrentControlSet-Control-Class-{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318})

I found out that there was no Upper/Lower filter in the registry and so I was unfortunately not able to remove them to solve he problem.

4. Tried different fixes, some of them are only to simplified the removal of the Upper/Lower filter.

Please does someone have suggestions? And please do not insult me with stuff I already tried or stuff that is far from solving the problem.
Cause I know what I am doing as an IT Consultant.

A:CD/DVD Drive not Reconized!

Do you know whether the optical drive even works? Have you tried it on a different PC? Is it recognized in the BIOS or in the device manager?

OK, ever since I installed my new hard drive my burner stoped working. Nero doesnt reconize it. The only recorder i can choose is an image recorder. I am pretty sure it is hooked up right. When i restart the computer the burner is seen as "optirite CD-RW". Thanks to all who can help me on this little problem i have.
