Preferred Solution: Lenovo Thinkpad E540 Not Charging Iphone

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.)

I hope this is the correct place to post - did not see a E series in the ThinkPad Board... I am getting an error when trying to update to Lenovo System Update version 5.07.0065.I recently upgraded the computer form Windows 7 to Windows 10. Trying to make sure my drivers were up-to-date I ran across the newer version of the System Update app. When I tried to install, it gave me this error:The old version is now none existant in Programs and Features. Any ideas? All are appreciated!  Thanks.

Please Help! I ran the Lenovo BIOS Upgrade for Thinkpad E540 for Windows 7; it didn?t work. (?Failure to Read BIOS?) So I downloaded the ISO version, and burned it to a CD. My laptop boots up ONLY from the CD. Now exactly what do I do now, in simple instructions, to upgrade from the ISO CD to the new updated BIOS so that it would be on my laptop (instead of having to boot from the CD every time)? Thanks!

A:How do I Lenovo BIOS Upgrade for Thinkpad E540 for Windows 7 from ISO CD?

Welcome to the forum!
 
If you boot from the CD (and the ISO was correctly burned on the CD), you only need to follow the instructions on the screen. If I remember correctly you need to press Enter once, (eventually confirm by pressing the "Y" key) and then the BIOS will be updated. After that you can remove the CD and boot normally.
 
You need to be connected to the AC and have a full charged battery before the update.
 
Hope this helps...

I just got an E540 and upon a Windows install, after updating the AHCI driver, the screen glitches out (crazy colors, lines, etc) and the system locks up. After a reboot, during Windows startup, the screen glitches out again and it completely powers off. System restore removes the driver and restores the ability to boot.
I've installed the driver from both Lenovo and a newer one from Intel and get the same result.
Windows has the driver already and I'm not opposed to leaving it the way it is, I'm just really wondering about this issue and would like to eventually update.
This happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, by the way.

Thanks in advance!

My Lenovo Thinkpad is not charging the battery and shows a "plugged in, not charging" message. I have a pending Bios update that won't update since the batteries are not charged.  Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? Is there a way to update the Bios with just power plugged in?     

A:Lenovo Thinkpad with "plugged in, not charging"

What charging threshold do you have set in either Lenovo companion or Lenovo Vantage app?  For me I have it set at 70% and 80%.  In other words my battery wont charge until it falls below 70% and it will stop at 80%.  So if its at 75% for example it will show "plugged in, not charging"

According to https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/docksSearch/ the Lenovo T480 20L6 laptop is compatible with the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station. However the docking station uses an entirely different power supply than the laptop (the old blocky rectangular one vs the newer mini rounded rectangle). The laptop itself fits on the docking station, but does not charge despite the docking station being plugged in. There are two connector slots on the dock that appear to be for the newer power supply, however neither of those provide power either. Is the docking station incorrectly listed as compatible when it really isn't, is there a hardware malfunction, or something else entirely?

I bought an E540 for my wife many years ago. She didn't really get the hang of it so it was put into a cupboard and has collected dust for many years. My kids are getting to the age where they can start to use a computer so I want to get it going again. I have found the cable and powered it up, but the password is locked and my wife cannot remember it! I have tried re-booting from the partition at start-up using F11, but it does not work. This machine is running Windows 8 and was only used for a very brief period before it was abandoned. No one has ever re-installed anything or otherwise fiddled with the operating system.  As far as I can see, we have none of the original software or accessories that came with it, other than the power cord  Any thoughts on how I might be able to get it going would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. I would like to resolve my problem with my E540 with OneLink Dock Pro.  When dock is connected to my notebook and I press power button, backlight of display lights up, but display stays black, no lenovo logo, nothing... Sometimes it shows logo but it freezes on this logo too. When I disconnect dock, notebook boots up normally. I tryed to disconnect monitor, keyboard and mouse from dock too, but it has no effect. This "freezing" seems to be happening only when dock is connected. On charger notebook boots up normally. And last note, this is happening only on "cold" start, restart works normaly. Problems started just after flashing new firmware to dock (v. 2.30) and BIOS update (v. 2.23). I do not know what made this problems, because I was doing these updates together. Thanks for any answer...

I don't have one to try, but there is a slot for a WWAN card or a 2242 M.2 SSD that is easy to access.  Remove the big cover and it is visible.  If you lay the machine down with the memory slots and the HDD toward you, it is above the HDD, to the left of the CPU.  The other thinkpads of that generation (T440, T540, W540) will all boot fine from the drive.

I did the bios upgrade to version 2.23, now I cannot sleep, hibernate or shutdown my laptop. All these actions just result in it rebooting. I tried to rollback, disabled the rollback protection and flashed the old bios firmware but it doesn't seem to be sticking. It still shows 2.23 as the version despite the bios firmware flash completing successfully. Suffice to say this is very very inconvenient.

Hi,I am shopping for a new laptop and am looking at the E440, E540, T440, and T440s. I would like to know the maximum RAM that can be installed in the E440 and E540. I can't find this information anywhere. Also, this is called the "E Series" on the website, but here it says "Edge". I assume this is the same thing?  I also went to Crucial.com to look at memory and see how much the maximum was, but they do not show the E Series, only the Edge. Thanks,Kkb

I know I should ask Lenovo these questions. I did, but their forum has practically no activity on it. I'm hoping someone here can help.

1. The fingerprint scanner won't start with the computer. It will only start after I log in. I enabled the driver and services and all their dependencies, and set them to boot with the computer, but no luck.

2. On the login screen, there's this really annoying "NumLock is on" message. Sometimes it behaves like the "CapsLock is on" message, but most of the time it glitches and leaves a black rectangle going the whole vertical length of the screen, straight down the middle. It's really annoying, and I have no idea how to turn it off. I want to turn off the whole message, because I know NumLock is on. I also want to find the option to set it to start with the computer; I can't find it in BIOS.

3. I want the middle button of the UltraNav to behave like a MiddleClick. Right now, it only scrolls like it, but with Lenovo's scroll display and no MiddleClick functions.

Kudos to whoever can help!

HI  I just buy lenovo E540 and  Don't know how  to use SIM card  in  it   any help   










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo E540 SIM card

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Inserting a SIM card will enable WWAN in your device.
 
But, to activate WWAN in your Lenovo ThinkPad E540, first you have to ensure that you have a WWAN card and WWAN antennas installed. WWAN upgradable models have the WWAN antennas installed from the factory these will be red and blue wires (the Wi-Fi are typically white, black and grey or just black and grey depending on model).
 
If you have WWAN antennas installed from the factory, probably you need to purchase a compatible WWAN card and install it.
 
Go to Lenovo Support site, enter MTM number of your device in quick path and get the system specifications. If you find any difficulties, please share the MTM of your device.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.
