T490[s] - why to transform them to X1 Carbon-like laptops

Q: T490[s] - why to transform them to X1 Carbon-like laptops

Probably it is not a right place to write a feedback for laptop specs, but I want my voice to be heard. I own T460s laptop and was willing to upgrade to t490s or next year model. What I value most in my t460s is full-size ethernet port, plenty of USB ports, full-size SD card reader. The only thing that I do really miss is high quality FullHD display with good enough brightness - when I take my laptop to vacation, I can't work even inside in a shadow if sun is shining through a window in my room - I can barely see anything on a screen. But with recent "upgrade" of T490[s] design, I see I no longer have a laptop that would suit me:t490s - not an option anymore, as it lacks full-size ethernet port and SD card reader.t490 - it also lacks SD card reader (probably I can live with it), but it doesn;t have an option of 400 nits screen that is available for 490s. So, to sum up, t490 could become an alternative for former t4X0s users, but this model is still considered as a "cheaper" variant and doesn't have an option for good screen (QuadHD is not needed on 14'' and would only draw more processing power). SD cards are also very convenient - all DSLR cameras using SD cards, and it is very inconvenient to force users to get a lot of adapters. There are a lot of other laptops with slim design that could be preferred over thinkpads. But thinkpads strength is availability of ports that are needed for business needs. Very disappointed...

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.)

This review in regards to the next Generation T series from Lenovo.  
 
The machine I tested is based a Intel i7-8565U 8th Generation Whiskey Lake 1.8GHz quad-core CPU.  It came with 16 GB of DDR4 memory and a bright 14? QHD(2560 x 1440) with Dolby Vision 500 nit IPS screen.  The screen I got according to HWiNFO64 is Model LEN40AE with a Monitor name of B14QAN02.0. It looks to my naked eye as the same as my X1 Yoga 3 screen with Dolby Vision.  It?s a very nice screen. This screen does not support touch.
 
As for graphics.  It came with a Intel UHD Graphics 620 and Nvidia GeForce MX250 with 2GB GDDR5 memory.
 
For connectivity it came with 2 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, 1 USB Type-C, 1 HDMI 1.4, 1 Thunderbolt 3, a MicroSD Card reader and 1 Audio Jack.  An interesting feature on this laptop that I personally have not seen before is the left side USB C port can charge other USB C devices.  It can output 5V at 1.5A. I personally have not been able to try this.

Hello Everyone,I have searched for a post like this before but haven't found anything that relates specifically to the T490 that just came out. I just received this barely a week ago and love the laptop except for one thing, I can't have the speakers on without a significant high pitched hissing noise. It goes away when they a muted, so there has to be something specifically going on with the audio components when powered. Makes this noise no matter if in bios or windows. Since my laptop is under warranty I am going to reach out to support and see what they offer as a solution. Regardless, I wanted to post here and see if anyone else is having this issue with the recent T490's or if my case is a one off. I will also post updates on what support suggests/provides as a solution. Thanks for reading!

Hello, I got a T490 with Synaptics Touchpad. Sadly the touchpad does sometimes abort my gestures or just not recognize my clicks. I sent it back to the vendor who sent me immediately a replacement device. The replacement device has exactly the same problems. It's not useable without a mouse because it drives me insane. Is someone else having the same problems? Is there a fix?I tried updating bios, updating touchpad drivers, uninstalling touchpad drivers and reinstalling windows Somehow with Ubuntu the touchpad works better but I can not determine the problem with windows and also I have to work with windows.I think I'm sending it back this weekend and search for a producer who can sell a notebook for 1600? with a working touchpad.Very dissapointing because without the not working Touchpad I would be very happy with the device.

Hi I have a Dell Precision T490 with the GU083 motherboard. I have upgraded to dual x5355 and 32gb of ram. Upon my upgrade I found that the workstation was running hot with the ideal temp of the cpu at 50 degrees Celsius. So I installed dual 80mm fans blowing hot air out through the back. Even with these the temp of the CPU under load is still around 80 degrees. So i kept it under low load and was able to run without issues for about a week.
After a few days I started to get ram issues whereby only 16gb of the installed 32gb is usable. The situation got really bad yesterday with system restarts under low loads. I'm lost to find the cause. Could my power supply be going out? or is the motherboard otw out too? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

The wireless router's signal in my home is unable to reach the third floor of the house, which is incredibly frustrating. There is no option to move it to a more centralized location nor have the service provider technicians been able to provide any assistance in resolving the issue. I have recently become aware that there may be a way to turn my PC into a wireless router, which, when located on the second floor, would then boost the signal so that wireless devices could operate on the top floor without interruption.

Any comments, advice, and/or suggestions would be most appreciated in resolving this matter. Thank you.

A:Hardware transform and lighting

Hardware transform and lighting is something that has been around for ages. This is just a guess, but I don't think you could find a current graphics solution that doesn't have it.

I'm guessing that you want to know this in conjunction with the ability to game with the machine...? Or perhaps Photoshop? In either case you will likely be disappointed with the onboard video, hardware T & L or not.

Hello,
Why is that in IE 10 when I open a XML file that has a reference to an XSL file (to perform a self-transformation on the XML file), the transformed XML output doesn't render as XML output with the "tags", but instead, it displays the node's data
content as raw text?
I've used older versions of IE to see the resulting (transformed) XML output (that was years ago... maybe it was 8?) and this was working. Am I missing anything? Is it an IE10 issue? What version works?

A graphics card that supports Transform & Lighting, allows games supporting T&L to be displayed at there upmost quality. It renders the game with detail rich graphics, allowing for the creation of beautiful scenes, objects, textures etc.
As far as I know, (correct me if i'm wrong), nVidia introduced T&L it with it's Geforce line of cards, right back with the Geforce 256 'bout 2 years ago.
As for whether your card supports it, well this link doesn't show it anyway. http://www.ati.com/products/pc/radeon7000/

A:file transform and setting

Hi,

No, that feature allows you to copy the Windows XP settings over to another computer, like if you purchased a new machine, and want to transfer files and settings to that new one from your old one. The settings are little customizations you may make, things you turn off or on or add as time goes by.
Windows XP is very into customizing....

Are you needing to use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard, to move things to a new computer?

I am not quite clear about what you want to do, is it something to do with clearing temporary Internet files?

Or clearing the History of where you went on the Internet?

Or, do you mean settings for Internet Explorer, like Security, Cookies, etc?

I recently bought a new computer with Windows Vista (Only to discover Windows 7 is about to come out!!) and installed my favorite game from my old computer - Star Wars Battlefront 1.

I had no problems running it for the first month. No lag, highest dettings.
Then I think it was when I installed Direct X SDK that things went pair-shaped.
First it said it didn't detect TnL support, and every time a play the framerate is about 4 fps. It never buggs me about my TnL support anymore thoug.

I have a Intel(R) GMA 3100 Integrated Graphics chip.

I did some research and fount that this chip DOES have TnL, but many old games don't recognise it.
I uninstalled Direct X SDK, but it's still as bad.

Why did it work before, and not now?

Thanks
 

A:Starwars Battlefront 1 Transform and Lighting

Things to try:
1. Restart the computer and then try the game
2. Do a System Restore to a point at which the system was fine
3. Don't download any more DirectX SDK's, or any DirectX, unless you actually are told that you need it; If a game says you need a higher version, then the game will probably provide it on the game's disks. If not, you can download it also from Microsoft's site, but make sure you get the right version. But if a game says you need 9 or a lower number, don't install it if you already have 10 or higher--that game doesn't know about version 10+. To check your DirectX version, just search for "dxdiag" from the Start Menu, and somewhere in there it should tell you which version it is.

Hey Guys - 
Hope this is the correct forum to post this into - wasn't 100% sure.  
I'm used to creating transform files (MST) to accompany MSI installers, but in the past have stuck to the basics of changing existing options in the "Property" table.  I'm in a scenario now where I need to specify a value for a parameter which
doesn't exist in the common places.
Below is the installation string currently used to install an EXE to install the application in question.  When executed, it extracts an MSI which it passes the strings below to.  I'm needing to implement all of the strings listed into a transform
so that it can simply be installed using a basic string like "msiexec.exe /i "setup.msi" TRANSFORMS="setup.mst" /qn

When viewing the MSI in Orca, most of the parameters are already in "Property" ("IN_PROFILENAME" & "IN_SERVER_NAME") or "Feature" ("ADDLOCAL" options) where I can easily change the default values. 
However, "INSTALLDIR" is not in either of them yet referenced multiple times in multiple tables.  I searched the MSI for "Program Files" as it's in the ... Read more

Hello.
In June 2016 our company bought Inspiron 5759. I used it at office, we have air conditioning, nothing that could cause overheating or other problems. In the end of July 17 laptop just turned off and didnt react on any actions. I brought to service center and they told it's the hub located on the same board with CPU. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole board which costs around 600 USD because there's CPU Core i7 in it. I was given another laptop Inspiron 5558 which was not used since winter of 2017 because it had problems with WiFi. I tried to connect it with LAN cable and discovered that LAN is not working, in fact there's no LAN adapter in device manager. Service center said today that's the same problem - but this time hub is not completely broken, it's just doesnt see LAN adapter and periodically shuts down WiFi. The technician told that this is a frequent problem with Inspirons and Dell knows about it but doesnt recall laptops or extend warranty on this spare part. I asked when second laptop got the wifi issues - it started at the beginning of 2017 and warranty ended in December 2016. Again just 1-2 months.

So, it looks very strange that Dell laptops break right after ending of warranty with same problem, and we can't just change the hub, we need to buy a new board which includes CPU for 600 USD.

My brothers Mac does it when we both visit home and my girlfriends roommates mac always kicks both of our laptops off the wifi. After a few minutes it will let us connect back up but then dies out again after a few minutes.

Here's a thought. I've been searching high and low for an affordable laptop which has

Awesome Graphics card (not sure what - but something that could handle Crysis at high)
15-16" screen with 1920 x 1080 res
4gb or more ddr3 1333mhz ram
core i7-720qm or higher processor
backlit keyboard
HDMI, long battery life, etc etc

So basically everything but at under $2500. I even bought a dell studio xps 1645 with the above specs and the price was real good ($1730 with student discount) but it had lots of problems so i had to return it.

Now that the problem is solved (? maybe?).. dell dont offer that laptop in that configuration, making the laptop around $2400 just due to an increase in RAM (6gb instead of 4gb).

And since I am unsure of the quality with dell or any other brand for that matter, I was wondering if there is any laptop out there that gives alienware m15x performance for a smaller pricetag? (a discount coupon for the above would do! hehe)

If not, what about "overhauling" or "Pimp My Laptop" sorta stuff if you catch my drift... You know customizing the laptop or even building it up from scratch.

I've done some basic upgrades in the past (RAM HDD, bluetooth card etc.) but does anyone have any experience in upgrading graphics cards, screens and CPU's?

Any experience or information about this is very welcome, as finding the right laptop in the right price is sorta like the Holy Grail of laptops, especially in NZ s... Read more

I'm using a transform Pivot SQL from within Access VBA to create the data I need to build a report in Excel. This report will be used by the user. the data comes from committees held across a year, and the various attendees. I don't want large gaps with all the dates being across the transform, so I run it for each committee, create/write the details to the Excel output file, and then run it again for the next committee. I could do it in a query and produce a report in native Access for each committee, but this would entail the user having to put it together and this, I know, won't be done.

Hello Lenovo Community! I've decided to give a big FU to consumerism and upgrade my VERY OLD Lenovo IdeaPad U160 bought wayyyy back in 2010. Since I've been consuming the internet and not contributing to it for a long time, I'll start by documenting my upgrade trials here. Please chime in (and answer a few questions) along the way! Here's what I'd like to upgrade and the replacement components:1. Storage: 500 GB HD to 500 GB SSD -- $150 -- Samsung EVO 2.5" 500GB SSD (via The Wirecutter recommendation)2. Memory: 4 GB RAM to 8 GB RAM -- $38 -- Crucial 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM : CT5305724 (via this other thread)3. Battery -- ~$40 -- TBD4. WiFi Card -- ~$35 -- TBD Couple questions for the community:1. Any recommendations on how/what software to use for backing-up and transferring data on the HD to a new SSD?2. Anyone have experience upgrading a IdeaPad U160?3. Is the WiFi Card on the IdeaPad U160 replaceable/ugradeable?4. Any recommendations on battery replacement brands? RAM replacement is in en route! I'll update soon with how the installation went! Thanks!!

Have a chain of 6-queries to cleanup, combine and merge data from two-files of similar configuration and one file with data to merge.  First four queries are connection only (I experience crashes when loading to a sheet). When another query was added
to create a result on a sheet, according to task manager, the CPU usage bounced around between 80 and 90%, memory jumped to ~15 GB (of 16) and control of cursor became very erratic (I assume because there wasn't any CPU processing left to manage the mouse). 
The Microsoft Mashup Evaluation Containers (3 of them) are consuming the CPU and memory.  Perhaps all of the queries are being refreshed and the refresh implementation is not well connected to Windows 10 so the operating system can't throttle the Mashup.
It may take hours for this condition to clear.  May also require hard computer reset and restart.  Like other threads, have experienced crashes and excel shut downs and auto recovery when using Get & Transform. 
All queries refresh control boxes are unchecked.  Is this a bad thing or will enable background refresh impact this problem.  The dat files are less than 8,000 records of 20-fields.  Have read on other blogs that this "performance issue"
and lack of monitoring tools is an broad issue.  Any suggestions on how to avoid or work around these hangups would be greatly appreciated.
Additionally, have the condition where Excel file is open, Query Editor... Read more

I am currently baffled by the following issue;

OS - Win XP Pro 32bit SP3

Background;

When attempting to install certain packaged software it will fail or in some cases bring up the Windows Installer information window.

We have noticed that it appears to happen when an installer, EXE or MSI relies upon transforming a further extracted MSI with an MST file.

This only occurs if the files are attempted to be extracted to the root of the temp folder. The files are not created hence cannot be run. The Windows Installer information window will appear if you attempt to run msiexec pointing to a file that does not exist.

For example;

When it works, an example>
We run an EXE that is located on the desktop. This then extracts further EXE's (and subfolders) to a folder called, for example, "SFX18C.tmp". Another folder called, for example, "{8907BCE9-6673-4A9A-A24A-892C26294539}", is also created within the TEMP folder which contains various INI files, an MSI and MST file. The installer then runs/transforms this MSI which appears to be named via a selection of random numbers and letters such as "aaetc234.msi & aaetc234.mst" in the root of the TEMP folder. The file size of this msi is exactly the same as the msi located in the {8907BCE9-6673-4A9A-A24A-892C26294539} folder. The installation continues and these files are removed, along with the {8907BCE9-6673-4A9A-A24A-892C26294539} and "SFX18C.tmp" folder.

Hi!I just got a new "X1 Carbon 5th Gen - Kabylake (Type 20HR, 20HQ)" and a "X1 Carbon Thunderbolt 3 Dock". I have an external screen connected to the dock and it works fine (VGA connection). I also have an other monitor with display (DP) connection that I want to use. But my computer can't find the other monitor, only the one with VGA connection. Is there any easy ways to fix this problem?Best regards

I used the 1st gen X1 Carbon for a while and found out that it's very robust and the touch feeling is very good. I guessed that all sides (A+B+C+D) of it are made by carbon fiber. Correct me if I'm wrong. But when I use my X1 Yoga 1st gen, which has only carbon fiber on A side (the cover behind screen) and uses "Super Magnesium" on C+D sides (the cover around keyboard and behind the keyboard), this design bring several problems: 1. " Super Magnesium" is still metal, if you crash it by accident, you may leave a scrath on it permanently, this happens more on edges;2. what's more, the paint at the edge of " Super Magnesium" will be rubbed away with time goes on, and you will see the white metal not the ThinkPad black;3. metal will suffer from deformation by force;4. the D side of my X1 yoga feels loose when you hold it with one hand, which make you feel cheap of this $1500 machine. Thus I hope the next gen of X1 Yoga or X1 Carbon can provide a pure carbon fiber version, for better build quality and user experience. How do you guys think about it?
