Can't erase SSD on T440p

Q: Can't erase SSD on T440p

Hello, I have a T440p. It has an SSD drive that it came with originally. Now I wish to secure erase it. 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. The web page for the utility specifically says it supports T440p. I've also tried with Parted Magic, but it only says that the drive is "unsupported". Does anyone have any advise on what to do here?

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

I just picked up a t440p, and I am hoping to do some upgrades on it.  I got a Transcend 512 GB SSD for the M.2 slot.   It installs just fine, and Windows 10 sees the drive.  The only issue is that when the M.2 SSD is installed, there is no wireless adapter in the system.  When I remove the M.2 SSD, the wireless adapters are back. Is it not possible to have both in the system and functional?  I am hoping to make the M.2 SSD the OS drive, and use the other SSD drives (2.5") for storage.

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 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?

Hello Lenovo Community, I got my T440p three years ago. Now it cannot power up at all. I did the following test. 1. Removed the memory modules, removed hard disk, removed optical driver.2. plug the external battery and AC adapter.3. The red LED on the A side, the dot on "i" of "ThinkPad" will blink three time. I can tell the laptop is intial powered per the manual.4. Press the power butoon, nothing displayed, the light on the power button is off, no fan running, no beep.5. Disconnect the coil-battery of BIOS, and re-connect after about 10 seconds.6. plug the external battery and AC adapter.7. The red LED on the A side blink 3 times. Press the power button. I heard 5 short beeps. The fan is running. That means the power button is still functional.8. Unplug the AC adapter and external battery (because i donot know how to stop the fan)9. Plug the AC adapter and external battery back and press the power button10. no beep, no fan running, no sound, no display.11. the output voltage of the AC adapter is 20.6VDC. the voltage of the coil-battery is 3.06VDC. both are good per the manual. I guess something going wrong on the main board, maybe the BIOS, the CPU... Any reply from you is very appreciate.

Repeat the above step, but leave the CMOS battery disconnected for at least 20 mins...
 
You will need RAM to boot, if you have two RAM modules installed try booting with only one, alternating the RAM slots.
 
If it still doesn't work, also disconnect the wlan and wwan cards, the touchpad and try again with one RAM at a time.
 
Let us know how it goes...

Hello everyone, I need to ask you a question about ram voltage of a t440p. It came with 4gb, and wanted to change one slot to a bigger memory module.Techincal data say this laptop uses ONLY DDR3L (1.35v) because of the Intel i5-4300 (which also states this in its tech sheet).My question arised when I opened the backplate and found there are already 2x2gb modules of DDR3 (1.5v) working in it. When searching for data sheets of the rams, both work only at 1.5v.What's happening? I really don't underestand if they are running in a lowered voltage state, or why they are working at all.Here's one of the modulesThank you in advance

A:[QUESTION] t440p RAM upgrade

Is this a second hand T440p? (I don't recall Lenovo installing Kingston Value RAM modules in ThinkPads...)
 
Basically there is nothing you should worry about, a T440p can use both 1.35v and 1.5v RAM if I remember correctly. And 1.5v RAM can also run at 1.35v.
 
If you plan to upgrade your RAM I would remove those modules (they're Kingston's cheap RAM line) and install 2x 4GB or 2x 8GB (the latter is the max RAM supported by this model).

Good afternoon, I am currently having issues with my Lenovo T440p laptop being plugged in to the AC adaptor but the charging icon does not appear and it doesn't charge the battery. I have had this occurring a couple times over the past couple months and usually manipulating the power cord in the charging port of the computer works.

I also do not have another device that fits the AC adaptor so I cannot determine if the power cord is malfunctioning or if it is the charging port of the computer.

The new adapter charges my computer, but sometimes (maybe about 1 out of 3 or 4 times) fails to charge effectively ("plugged in, not charging"). I often have to wiggle the computer end of the plug in the port a bit to get it to charge at all; it's also much harder to insert the plug into the computer than any of my previous cables. 1) Has anyone had any negative experiences with the Elecbrain adapter, and 2) in the likely event that I return the Elecbrain adapter, there any difference between these three official Lenovo adapters: 0B46994, 888015012, 4X20E75140? One of them is not labeled as "slim tip" and one of them is for the ThinkCentre instead of the ThinkPad, but the thumbnails all look identical. My machine is a Thinkpad T440P purchased in late 2015, model number 20AN006NUS.

hi,I have a lenovo T440p laptop that i have been using for 6 months now. newly the laptop often and unexpectedly turns off rather then going into sleep mode after i close the lid.Also, sometimes, after i close the lid the display turns off and the laptop becomes irresponsive but do not enter sleep mode. the only way is to force reboot the laptop. i have installed all the required updates proposed by the thinkvantage utility but the problem is persisting.what could be the reason for this behaviour and how could it be solved?

Has anyone had any issues installing the latest BIOS update for T440p? My doesn't want to update, it goes through the normal steps, but before the reboot, I am greeted with a blank screen. Pressing the power button to switch off the laptop I hear 2 short beeps then 3 short beeps, but the laptop will not power off. I have to remove the battery to force it to power down. It will reboot as normal, but the BIOS update has failed.

As I understand it, the T440p has three options for internal storage : (1) Internal SATA slot for a 2.5" drive.(2) SATA slot for a 2.5" drive in the Ultrabay/caddy.(3) M.2 slot.My question: Do all of these slots work at SATA3 6Gbps ? Is the interface for all three SATA3 6Gbps ? Will new SATA3 6Gbps SSDs work at SATA3 6Gbps speeds for all three  ?  What is the maximum capacity for each slot ?

Trying to pair a bluetooth headset and having all sorts of trouble. I have installed the Intel package, but still have issues. At one point I did have the audio working, but now I can't even get that to work. I was never able to get the mic up and running. In Device Manger, there are 2 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device" items. Windows update does nothing for them. At one point they were listed as Bluetooth Remote and some other Bluetooth device, but neither device could start. (error 10) I have 2 Bluetooth radios listed. (Intel and the MS Enumerator)  I am able to pair the headset, but it just doesn't work after that. Spent almost all day trying to get this to work, ready to pull my hair out. Hopefully someone here can help me. When I do a 'connect' in Bluetooth Device Control, I get 'Error connecting to headset. Please retry this operation'. And FWIW, I have a T430 here that I connected to with no issue. - Jon

Here are the hardware IDs on the Bluetooth Perihperal devices if that helps. 1. BTHENUM\{24df01a9-3e4f-4c9f-9f66-5aa8ab14f8f4}_LOCALMFG&00002. BTHENUM\{84a1e9b8-12ba-4a9c-8ab0-a43784e0d149}_LOCALMFG&0000 Oh and I'm running Windows 7, not Windows 8.
