A:Upgrade HD TN to FHD IPS for X250 (Windows 7). Adv...

Hello,
 
I'm not a Lenovo employee, so cannot answer some of your questions exactly, but let me try to answer as a fellow X250 user who went from an HD IPS (1366768) to FHD IPS (19201080) panel about nine hours ago.
 

When the display panel was switched out, the display scaling changed from 100% to 125%.  Plenty of applications handle the new scaling just fine, but some of older ones looked blurry as a result of how fonts are scaled up in them.  Switching to 100% display scaling solved this and the apps now display crisp, if somewhat small, text.
Text is much sharper on the FHD display than the HD display, which is sort of expected given the new screen has nearly twice as many pixels as the old one.  Both screens I had were IPS, though, so I cannot make a direct comparison between TN and IPS.
I would suggest getting the screen installed by a Lenovo authorized service center.  According to this page, the contact information for Lenovo Ireland Sales and Customer Support is+353(01) 6535 568, and hours are from Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm GMT

One thing I've noticed is that the new screen seems a lot brighter than the old one.  Again, not sure how this compares with TN versus IPS screens, but just something to be aware of.

I am looking to upgrade my X250 to improve performance. I am not a gamer, don't need lightning speed, so I figure almost any type SSD will do. My Intel I7 chip will support 16GB memory, so I will be doing that as well. I have a couple of questions I don't see answered. If I install a 256-500GB M2.SSD for the bootable drive, can I use the currently installed HDD as a D: drive? I did see I need to remove Express Cache if I use the M2.SSD slot for my bootable drive. Anyone doing this and what do I need to do in Disk Management to define the two drives? I think I can do a MS system backup of my HDD before either installing the M2.SSD or the internal SSD, and do a system recovery to restore Windows to the new drive. If that won't work, what do I need to do? Do I need to format the SSD before doing the recovery? If I decide to to low tech and just replace my HDD with an SSD, is there any reason to retain the M2.SSD? It is mainly to improve disk performance, and with an SSD instead of an HDD, it seems like wasted overhead. I have used fast startup, and I see no difference in startup time. Seems like a waste of effort. I don't think the Lenovo recovery partition on my X250 is of any use after upgrading to Windows 10. After I get the SSD installed and working, I plan to do a fresh install (not reinstall) of Windows 10 Pro, and format the SSD during the install. This should get rid of any unused partitions and make maximum spae available for my C: dri... Read more

Hi, In Oct 2018, I upgrade BIOS on my x250 Thinkpad to version 1.33 as suggested by Lenovo but have since regretted this move. My trackpad, trackpoint (the little red thing), keyboard and speakers have not worked since then. OS is running Win7 64-bit. Upon boot-up, the keyboard works for a few keystrokes at the password field, and then DIED! Sometimes it lets me past the login phase and when I edit a document, it dies after a few sentences. The trackpad and trackpoint was working before the BIOS update. The speakers do not work now but earphones are ok, so my soundcard is probably still intact. It has brought a great deal of inconvenience of late, and the X250 laptop is now almost useless. I am using an external keyboard and mouse to circumvent the issue. Probably the internal drivers have been over-written or corrupted. Any way to salvage my X250? How to rollback the 1.33 BIOS and revert to a working version without more devices failing. Appreciate the support. Many thanks!

A:Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE Mobile Broadband FRU: 04X6014 for my ThinkPad X250

Regarding your questions:1) I personally use it and it's really good, as I don't want to use additional USB modem or WWAN wireless router.2) Can't say, as I don't use Fedora.3) There's a dedicated port for this module. Please make sure, that you have an antenna connectors for module and adapter for a SIM card. Moreover, instead of WWAN module, you can install there a m.2 2242 SSD disk.4) Both can be enabled and connected, but application will use one at time.5) I have an extended battery, so it's hard to tell. I guess it have a simmilar power usage as WLAN module (basing on Windows power utilization). Can't say about Fedora.6) It you don't want to have a problem with whitelist (it prevent system from booting, when unauthorized module is installed), then I look for module on eBay. Make sure, that photos explictly show FRU PN: 04X6014 on module's label. Models without it will not work.

Hi Voljka,For company or production environment, Windows Insider Preview / Release Preview builds is not recommended, as the drivers may not be ready for all types of hardware.  I would suggest you revert back to Windows 10 RS3 (15063), and wait until it is ready and show up in the Windows Update.

Wireless N seems really slow on my PC, I had computers before that had wireless AC and it was much faster than the one I have now.
Is it possible to upgrade to an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC or Dell wireless ac from wireless n? I seen wireless ac cards that can fit into the PC I currently have but I need to make sure that it will be compatible with the system.
Thank you.

A:Can I upgrade the Inspiron 7459 AiO Wireless n card to wireless ac?

Version of Windows?  Do you have the lasted WiFi driver for the 'n' card?
You should be able to upgrade. The Dell specs for this model list 'n' and 'ac' wireless, but 'ac' was  probably an optional upgrade. So you need to know the specs for the wireless M.2 slot. And the card needs to be compatible with whatever version of Windows is running.
You could get a USB>WiFi dongle instead of an internal WiFi card. Either way, you need a router that's  compatible with 'ac'.
Have you tried changing some of the driver settings for the 'n' card in Device Manager? Can you change the 2.4 GHz channel the PC and router use to communicate? If the current (default) channel is crowded, even if it's from the neighbor's WiFi, that can slow the speed.
Is distance to the router an issue?  And keep in mind that 'ac' typically has a shorter working distance than 'n'.

My second X250 came in with a 16GB SanDisk SSD in addition to a 500GB HDD. Reading through the forum, a post mentioned that this 16GB SSD is placed in the position of the smart card reader. The mannual says this is a 3rd NGFF adapter. I am wondering if this 16GB SSD can be upgraded with a m.2 2242 32GB SSD module (or other types). I opened the back cover, lifted the internal battery, then lifted the shining metal cover a little and I don't see a memory module and port under it. I have installed Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on to this 16GB SSD; the Ubuntu install runs well except that only 1.5GB space left. I am trying to see if there is a way to replace this 16GB SSD with a larger size module. Using the m.2 port next to the WiFi card is my last resort. I need advice before taking more parts apart. Thank you.

I've just received a new X250, maxed out, and I'm really unhappy. Within a few minutes of booting it, I was seeing red and blue horizontal lines on the screen. I hoped these would be fixed by updates, but regardless of the driver, they are still there. To add insult to injury, the ports on the left hand side of the laptop do not line up with the casing. The USB port can be used, but the Display Port is seriously rubbing. The VGA connector is unusable. I'd hoped I'd have the laptop a week before I started a new job, and now it looks like I will be a week later. Does anyone know how I best approach Lenovo for a replacement under the Sale of Goods Act? I really don't want it to be repaired - this is a bad machine.

A:Really disappointed in new X250

Sorry to hear about the issues with your new X250. That must be very frustrating. According to Lenovo, returns should be easy providing you do it within 14 days.
 
I appreciate you may not receive the replacement before you start your new job. You might want to ask Lenovo if they have a similarly configured X250 in stock that they could send you instead of waiting for the replacement to come from China.

Hi, I just bought a X250 today. I received it with Windows 7 Pro, and the first thing I did was upgrade it to Windows 10. After an hour of use, I noticed that the battery was draining really fast. I clicked in the battery icon on the system tray and noticed that it says: Battery 1: This battery is not available for useBattery 2: 40% (or whatever) I opened Device Manager and I see two devices listed under the "batteries" section, both of them called "Battery with Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method" (translating from Spanish, which is my system language, so it might not be exactly like this). I guess this means that the system indeed detects that there are two batteries, so it looks like a software problem. I right clicked on both of them and selected "uninstall", and then went to action > look for hardware changes, so that should refresh the driver. After doing that, the "battery 1: this battery is not available" message still appears. I also noticed that there was a power manager application from Lenovo which is not compatible with Windows 10. After upgrading, Windows notified me that this app had been removed and I don't see a W10 equivalent on the support downloads section of the Lenovo website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Pau

A:X250 Battery 1 "is not available for use"

I also tried unplugging the second battery (the removable one). Immediately after unplugging it, the computer shuts down. If I turn it on without the second battery and plugged into the wall outlet, the icon in the lower right corner (system tray) says "no battery found"; however, on device manager I still can see one battery appearing. If I click on "properties" in device manager, it says that the device is working correctly, and there is no sign of any error log or crash report inside the battery properties in device manager.  I tried updating the BIOS and resetting BIOS to defaults, and it makes no difference. I also tried running Ubuntu from a USB stick ("try" option) and it only detects the second battery, not the integrated one.  I guess it must be a hardware problem.

I recently bought an X250, and immediately upon using it, found that the spacebar is not as responsive as all the older thinkpads I've had in the past. Specifically, when I type I press on the right side of the spacebar to create a space, but my usual amount of force is no longer responded to by the keyboard. If I push harder, it will respond, but that's annoying because it slows down my typing speed. If I press on the middle of the spacebar it works much better, and if I press it with my left thumb it works better, too. Does that mean I'm typing wrong all these years, or did I end up with a bad key?  I have depot service, so would Lenovo address this if I send it in? If I send this in, do I need to remove all the data on the machine? Would they replace the spacebar or the entire keyboard as I saw somewhere? How long would it take? Gotta say that the keyboard is much worse than the X230 that I am coming from. Thanks for any heads up!

Good morning everyone. I installed on my x250 (using a free WWAN slot) M.2 SSD disk - ADATA Premier SP600 256GB M.2 SSD. First installation: April 2016. The disk worked great. After a "BIG windows10 update" the drive began to freeze and died on August 2016. The drive was replaced with a new one. On March 2017 the problem returned (in the new disk) - again began to freeze and died.From here my question arises - did I make a mistake somewhere? Do dear forumers who did similar installations on their x250 have similar problems? What can I do to prevent the problem on the third drive?

Hello guys I recently bought a second hand X250 with an Intel 240gb SSD installed and I am planning to install also an M.2 SSD to install Linux.I have already installed Linux in another partition in the Intel, but in general I am not a big fan of grub and also I don't like the restriction of maximum 4 primary partitions per disk. I would prefer to keep the Windows drive 100% clean of any Linux staff.So, I'm planning to install my Linux in the M.2 drive (I have already cleaned my system disk of the Linux staff, grub etc) and I was wondering if choosing the boot up device from the bios is going to be an option, without grub or other boot loaders. I just want to leave the Intel as default boot device and when I want to boot up in Linux, I will choose to boot from the M.2 SSD.Will such a setup work in my Thinkpad?As far as the M.2 drive itself, a 120 gb is more than enough and I am planning to go for an ADATA. I have read a lot of negative reviews about the Transcend M.2s and I don't trust "random" manufacturers, like ZTC or KingDian. Is there any better option for me? Thank you very much for your time.

However, while that worked originally (I inserted the card, it was recognized, I changed the PIN), the laptop no longer recognizes the sim when inserted.The solution suggested in another thread (enable WWAN in BIOS) does not apply to me, as it is enabled.My SIM card works in other devices, however, different SIM cards are also not recognized. Any ideas?I've switched the pre-installed Windows 7 for Windows 10, but the changed of PIN was already in Windows 10, so I doubt it had anything to do with that.

With input from this forum, I went ahead and ordered an X250.  ETA first week of April.  Thank you... (ask me in May if I am still as grateful   ) My plan is to also purchase an Ultra dock and use the screen on the notebook as well as two external displays.  I did some research and understand certain video ports take priority over others, but this should no be an issue. After reading another thread (here) I am concerned this setup may not be as reliable as one would hope.  I realize the thread references an X240 (not an X250), but would like to know if others have a 3 display setup with the X250 and if they enountered any issues? Thanks again.  This group has provided a wealth of information that has essentially kept me in the Lenovo camp.  I currently use a W520 and was pretty close to moving another manufacturer altogether.

A:Any Issues with X250 and Using 3 Monitors?

Hi Technobob,
 
I'm using a ThinkPad X240 daily on a ThankPad Ultra Dock with two 1920x1080 DisplayPort monitors simultaneously with the X240 LCD. Also have an X250 which occasionally gets plugged in to the same dock and all three monitors work, no issues.
 
Hope this helps!

Thinkpad x250, less than two years old. Running Windows 10. Yesterday afternoon after having my laptop plugged in for about a half an hour, I realised that it hadn't increased in charge at all from 9%. I clicked to open the charging icon on the taskbar and it said Battery 1 was at 12% and charging, while Battery 2 was at 5% and not charging. I unplugged, turned my cable and plugged it back in - same thing. I took the battery out, waited a moment, put it back in. No dice. I repeated this step a couple times. I left it to charge overnight, hoping that might resolve something but no luck. When I woke up this morning, it was now at 8%, with Battery 1 at 10% and charging while Battery 2 remained at 5% without charging. My boyfriend has the same charger, so I switched to his to experiment. Battery 2 started to "charge" while Battery 1 stopped. Neither has gained any charge, however. When I switched back to my charging cable, Battery 2 continues to be the one to "charge" and now the battery says it's at 7%. I uninstalled the drivers, took the battery out for a minute and rebooted, reinstalled the drivers, and there's been no change. I went into Lenovo Settings and tried to run the Reset Gauge, but it failed as the battery would not charge. Additionally, none of the thresholds are on. As it is being powered by the cable, and not shutting down, I know that it might be alright as long as I keep it plugged in perpetually, but I'm concerned that once th...

Hello all,The built-in "Lenovo Update" agent program recommended a BIOS update v1.23 (it's a critical update), so I did. And then my system doesn't boot: it's hangs on the "Starting Windows" logo page (Windows 7 64 bit). So I am trying to rollback to the last working version v1.21. Confirmed that my machine is type 20CL, went here, go the bootable CD, successfully went to the BIOS Update Utility, and then it said: "system program file is not correct for this system" ? The followings settings in BIOS were applied to try enable a rollback of BIOS but failed...??? * I am sure: - my download was correct- no issue on handling the ISO burning to CD- this has nothing to do with Windows or operating system* Any idea folks?I really really need my system back... Thanks.Angus

There is a design problem on  the ThinkPad  x250. Touch the back of the screen when there is an image with many colors on the screen. You will see that the screen is moving. As you open and close the computer's cover, the screen is whitening due to this design error. Especially in the middle. Due to this problem, they changed the screen under warranty.
