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.)

Hello Lenovo community, Today my Thinkpad x220 stopped working and is giving me a fan error. Is anyone able to give advice how to fix this? I was able to reboot once since but had no such luck again. Previously I've had problems with overheating already, which might be related (idk). I've checked the connection between fan and motherboard already: It is propperly plugged in. Other forum posts suggest a power drain by repeatedly pressing the power button for 10 to 30 seconds (depending on poster) without any power sources attached. This does not worked. @richk explained elsewhere that it might be due to (a) the fan, (b) a fuse, or (c) fan sensors being broken. As he suggests, I've checked whether the fan spins up before the fan error is reported (by visual inspection after removing the keyboard). The fan moves a tiny bit as if it was to start spinning. However it doesn't really spin and only falls back into the same position. Unfortunately I'm long out of warranty and can't affort to send my ThinkPad to support for them to tell me they can't fix it. Does anyone know what the most likely cause is? Will replacing the fan solve the problem? Is it worth sending it to support even outside warranty? I've also read here in the forum that lubricating the fan bearing solved a similar problem for some users. Should I try that? In short: Is there hope to get my computer working again or have a just gained an expensive paperweight? Any hel... Read more

Greetings everyone, I currently have a Lenovo Thinkpad W541 as my main powerhouse driver that I use for Computer Science related work (School and Work). It's an awesome machine, and I love it, I have 28 gb of RAM in it. I will continue to use it daily without a doubt, but I did not want to continue taking it with me everywhere, so I went on eBay and ordered a refurbed (but super condition) Thinkpad X220 for less than $100. It comes with a 300gb hard drive which I won't replace because as aforementioned my Thinkpad W541 is my main baby. However, it only has 4gb of RAM. I want to max it out to 16gb once I receive it sometime this week. I read elsewhere on forums that X220's do allow 16gb of RAM. Another question is does it matter what kind RAM from a speed perspective I purchase? Thanks!

So i just purchased a very good condition X220 from ebay for around $90 to supplement my amazing Thinkpad W541. I'm really happy with the X220 and I probably like the keyboard even more so than the Chicklet style keyboard found on my Thinkpad W541. The only thing that troubles me however is the fact that I'm unable to get the memory utilization to utilize the full installed memory (which it rightfully detects at 16gb). I'm utilizing the latest unadulterated BIOS. The RAM modules are rated at 1333 mhz each. What's going on?

A:Thinkpad X220 only recognizes 8gb of RAM, why?

Hi PulloSagata,
 
If you are running Windows 10 32 bit, the machine will only address less than 4 Gb of memory.  
 
I'm guessing you are running Windows 10, 32 bit.  Look in Control Panel, System  and see what version you are running.

A new CMOS battery would certainly be a cheap fix and is worth a try, but normally if the CMOS batters dies it just will not save the BIOS settings, however, I have heard people who said a dead CMOS battery prevented their system from booting up until they replaced it, and described having no problem with Start >> Shutdown >> Restarts, while turning the system off and back on failed similar to what you describe.    The "Me is in recovery state" is also BIOS related (corruption) so I would follow the advice on replacing the CMOS battery if I were you. If you have a multimeter, you could also check the battery for voltage, which should be 3v DC when new, and any battery reading less the 2v DC probably should be replaced. .     It is very unlikely that RAM is the issue, and I doubt that your system board has gone bad since it was booting intermittently just fine until you left it off for an extended period. Good Luck,

Hi, Yesterday I bought a used X220 Tablet - the version with Gorilla Glass - and installed Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) on it.What a great little computer this is! But what disappointed me was the lack of precision of the pen that came with the tablet. Unfortunately I could not find a setting - or program - to calibrate the pen. On this forum I learned that a lot of owners have to deal with a pen that is not accurate. On one of the posts I read it was mentioned that the digitizer in the X220 Tablet is made by Wacom, so I went their website for a recent drivers. Luckily, I soon found an appropriate tool, the Wacom Hardware Check, on ftp://ftp.wacom-europe.com/pub/WINDOWS/WacomHardwareCheck.exe . After downloading and running it, I was told:"You have hardware that is compatible with the Wacom FEEL driver. You can download the latest driver here: http://www.wacom.com/feeldriver " The URL led to a file on http://cdn.wacom.com/u/drivers/TabletPC/ISD_DualTouch_732-12.exeThe file is about 24 Mb in size. After downloading and installing it, I was able to calibrate the screen, with 25(!) calibration points. Accuracy is great now; not only in landscape, but also in portrait mode! Since I found no reference on this forum to the Wacom FEEL driver in combination with the X220 Tablet running on Windows 10, I thought it might be interesting to others in this forum. Cheers!

Hello I am using ThinkPad X220 with 9-cell battery (FRU P/N 42T4940)Yesterday, I update my system with Lenovo system Update, and the battery firmware update is the only important updates that I (try) to install. Long story short, when the program said that the sytem will automatically shuts down after the firmware update is complete, I clicked next to start the upgrade. Suddenly my system shut down right after the firmware upgrade started and when I turn it on again, it said that the firmware upgrade was failed and I need to turn my computer off. After I turn my computer on, the Power Manager said that my battery canot be charged because of poor condition from normal wear (my battery still can hold more than 85% of charge, more specifically 87%).I even tried to update it again using Windows 7 but no luck. From that on, I cannot charge my battery despite any ways that I tried (reset power gauge, take off the battery while the system turned on and charge it when it turned off, etc) Is there any solution for my problems?Anyway I am using the latest version of BIOS available (1.42 - EC 1.24)I am using UEFI booting with GRUB as main bootloader (Windows 10 and Debian 8.0) but when using Windows 7 I am using the legacy booting with GRUB as main bootloader

A:Lenovo ThinkPad X220 General Upgrade Information (RAM/SSD)

Hi and welcome, heyArhumGlad to see ThnkPad and x220 lover 1. x220 supports up to 2x8 GB RAM installed.With BIOS up to v.1.28 it supports 1333 Mhz memory by default (by design) and memory 1600 Mhz w/o issues. With 1866 Mhz memory some issues might appear, depending on the memory stick manufacturer, model, parametersStarting with BIOS v.1.29 using not designed memory type is locked.2. x220 mSATA slot supports SATA II interface. There are no SATA III lines of laptop chipset in that interface. So, use any mSATA drive, on your choice - capacity, budget, vendor..., not in the m.2 formfactor (!). Intel, Plextor, Crucial, Corsair, Samsung, Kingston... Not NoName and OCZ. Of course, most mSATA III drives are back compatible with mSATA II slots.The choosing between mSATA + HDD and regular 2.5" SSD drives depends on the storage capacity you need, laptop usage profile.3. I don't know about palmrest cracking issue despite the fact I contacted with hundreds of the x220 owners, since the beginning of 2011. I'm sure there might be a bit trouble with parts fixing under palmrest, their routine. There was the single case I remember - the user has breaked it himself due to the impact.

Hello, Has anyone tried installation of a sierra wireless MC7750 card on a X220 tablet? I've gotten hold of a MC7750 and intend to install it on my X220 tablet and try it with Verizon 4G network. Thanks,Anand

A:Thinkpad X220 Tablet - Installation of sierra wire...

I have not tried it, but I can tell you that most likely it will not work in the default configuration.  Lenovo machines have a whitelist that checks to see if the WWAN card inserted into the machine is regonized and certified.  If the machine doesn't recognize the card it will display an 1804 error.  Since Lenovo doesn't yet sell these cards yet, it's unlikely that this card is on their whitelist. Some people modify their BIOSes to recognize cards that Lenovo hasn't put on their list yet.  I believe you can find such moded BIOSes here: http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Removed-whitelist-removal-Lenovo-ThinkPad-x220-v1-21 or alternatively maybe in the forums in http://www.mydigitallife.info/ There may be newer versions of the BIOS in the same forum, but I haven't checked in a while. I've been waiting for months for Lenovo to support the MC7750, or another LTE card like it.  I've been told by several sales people that "it's right around the corner".  Pretty much hogwash so far.  I haven't gone the step of ordering one of these card yet hoping that Lenovo will officially support it soon.  Please post back though if you do end up moding your bios.  I'm curious to know how well it works.  Also read up on taping pin 20.  Some people say it's necessary in addition to moding the bios. Good luck.

Hi everyone, first post here!
My laptop is currently causing me some aggravation regarding fast startup. It is a Lenovo Thinkpad X220 I have upgraded to Windows 8 and then 8.1 and an SSD and up to now has been performing flawlessly.
Recently, with the fast startup option enabled, the computer has been shutting itself off completely after the startup animation and requires the power button pressing again before it will boot up, in 'normal startup' speed.
I have tried disabling and re enabling fast startup, using the 'powercfg -h off' and 'powercfg -h on' commands to recreate the hiberfil.sys file and that's about all I can think of. It still behaves the same, turning itself off completely immediately after the startup animation.
Anyone got any ideas to resolve this?

A:Fast startup causing problems - Lenovo Thinkpad X220

Fast startup has worked a couple of times in the meantime - I swapped the wireless card yesterday and reinstalled some drivers to resolve some unrelated issues and it started working again. Yay! I thought - but after the first couple of goes it started doing the same thing again and shutting off after the animation!

OS: Windows 10 64bits with latest sys update in 2017Thinkvantage update: no updates needed (all latest)Driver: 2006/6/1 version from Microsoft, Lenovo drivers seems discountinued and cannot be found anywhere on its support pages (Anyone can find it? I remember it used to be a standalone driver for the bluetooth version of the compact keyboard)Tried: BIOS settings (toggle of Fn/Ctrl, Enable Lock), latest BIOS version but not working at all.Workaround: I have to press: Fn + F4 + Alt in order to close a window, which has the same effect as F4 + Alt. But can't live wiz this because it's transforming a 2 button job into a weird 3 button job.Note: This problem only occurs with all my bluetooth compact keyboards, but doesn't affect the normal FnLk functions on the USB version of Thinkpad Compact Keyboard.  The wireless keyboard is really handy except the FnLk not working that kills anyone wiz a habit of shortcuts involving Fn + keys. Plz kindly help. 













Solved!

He there,
I found a couple of similar threads, but I could not solve my problem yet.
Since a bought this laptop almost a year ago I have random system chrashes with a "Driver Power State Failure".
Sometimes it seems especially when I use lots of programms at the same time and always when the computer automatically goes to "sleep" or "poer save mode" (or when I close the lid).
What can I do to solve the problem or where is the problem exactly?

Kind regards
Dschi

A:BSOD - ThinkPad x230, x220T, x220 - Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power

We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.  


WE NEED AT LEAST TWO DMP FILES TO SPOT TRENDS AND CONFIRM THE DIAGNOSIS.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.
If you are overclocking stop.  (chances are if you dont know if you are, you are not)a
To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.  

The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy (compress them)
*Please upload them to a file sharing service like Skydrive or"Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

Link for how to  upload below.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Please also run MSinfo32 and upload the output as well.
