Q: T580 vs E580 what is the diffence if specs are the same. Pls help.

Hello Everyone, I'm looking to buy my first ThinkPad but Lenovo segmentation is a bit confusing. I understand T is midrange model and E is entry level. But both models could be customised with the same specs, 15inch 1920x1080p, i5 8250u, 8gb (4x2) ram, 128 ssd. However, there is £300 ($USD 420) price difference? Both laptops look identically. Is it worth paying extra for T model? Unfortunately, there is very little info available online. Please shed some light. Thank you.

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 refer to another similar complain post, I just met a similar problem with lenovo bad screen quality and poor customer service. I bought Thinkpad T580 laptop last year and used in a  normal  environment (always on the desk in my home). One day I found there is a 2x2cm light/white spot on the screen bottom area, which can only be observed when the screen background is in white color. Lenovo told me that it's cased by outside pressure  and they are not covering my screen replacement  under warranty. I own another thinkpad x260 which use in my daily and oversea business travel for over three years and everything is still fine. That's why I purchase T580 for my home use. It is disppointing  that Lenovo can  not  stand behind their product and stand behind their promise to customers (warranty).  Lenovo advertises the Thinkpad T580 as following on their webside: "We test ThinkPads against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. From the arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero-gravity to spills and drops, you can trust your T Series device to handle whatever life throws your way." I disgree with their statement and  not going to pay ~$295 parts+ ~30 labour total around 325 to fix my screen. Very disapointed with Lenovo quality and customer service, I won't consider Lenovo again if there is another choice.

A:can someone tell me the diffence between these 2 video cards x1800xt's

They are basically the same card, just two slightly different models. Same everything.

The $269 "SR" is the software bundle version. For $20 more, you get Power Director Pro 3.0, Power DVD and a couple other CD's of "lite" versions of software.

The $249 "L" model is just the X1800XT with the basic driver CD. i.e.. you'll need to provide your own DiVx and MPG4/DVD decoder from somewhere else not be able to watch DVD's with it.

If you already have WinDVD or other DVD software, I'd just save the $20 and get the $249 version. It's basically a bundle difference, but worth it for folks that don't already have DVD software.

As my post says I need the specs of both drives, paticularly the type of termination (active, etc). (I am definately NOT a SCSI savvy person)

Heres my problem I have a proprietary graphics computer that uses standard SCSI hard drives up to about 340mb for saving images. It is compatible with most Quantum LPS/Prodrive and Conner drives, especially the 120mb and 270mb versions.
Anyway I got a large number of IBM WDS3160's due to the lack of the latter and they do not work properly.

With the ibm drives I have problems with line noise and detection.

What is the difference (electronically) between an IBM WDS-3160 and a Conner 30100 drive? Is there any way I can get the IBM drive to function similarly to a Conner 30100?

Please note that I am only using one drive in the system.

Thanx for any help
 

A:Need IBM WDS-3160 specs and Conner cp30100 specs major trouble

I believe I've found a difference between the two drives, it seems that the conner unit automatically enables SCSI parity and the ibm drive makes no mention of it.
Do any of you think this could be the issue? If so how would I enable parity on the ibm drive?

Thanx

Which Intel P4 Processor and what storage options to use?

Hello everyone. I need to spec out a new testing PC for work, so I'm asking for some opinions. The role this thing will play is a VMware test machine. I will be creating VMware images to run application tests, break/fix, troubleshooting, etc. The operating systems on the images will likely be Server 2003 and XP. So I was thinking of 2 gigs memory, but that may be too conservative. The help I really need is with the CPU and storage. I obviously want a multi core/hyperthreaded CPU, but which one? Hot swapapble RAID would be nice, but what level, and do I need a stand-alone RAID controller or can I use the mobo's?

Thanks all, in advance.
 

A:Specs I need, give me specs. Opinion Sollicitation for work PC...

The Xeon Line of CPU's usally do very well in a server like setup. Alot of the time you can get the dual CPU motherboards. If you perfer though maybe one of the new Intel Dual Cores will run well, although im not sure, most servers I know of run dual Xeon's.

As for storage, if you have the money, get SCSI contolers and RAID SCSI drives. They are alot quicker.

And 2GB of RAM seems fine.

I have had two seperate E580 notebooks that i purchased directly from lenovo. the first one from the box had the problem of not wanting to boot up(black screen) unless i force shut it off. I spent many hours speaking with technically support and they told me update my drivers, and that did not fix it, they sent me a new copy of windows 10 to do a system reset to see if it was caused by my anti-virus i installed. the problem continued. Out of futility I asked for a replacement and they sent it along with the return box for the original except it was to the address they didn't update after explicitly telling them I moved. I picked up my laptop from UPS and no return box. SHOCKER- My new computer with no new anti-virus just the 30 day mcafee trial is freezing daily and now not wanting to turn on like the original E580 they gave me.

I am sitting with two computers that work when they want to and NO ONE at lenovo has helped me.  This company would be a lot better if they upped their customer/support service divisions.

Hello, I don't know if this is the right place to post this here but I am doing so as I couldn't find any other alternative. I had ordered Lenovo ThinkPad e-580 online via (https://www3.lenovo.com/nl) with configuration mentioned (at the end of this letter) on 29 March 2018. As mentioned in the email delivery was supposed to happen within 7 days however that never happened. After multiple followups, the laptop was finally delivered on 20 April 2018. Within first two weeks, laptop's display doesn't work. Contacted technical support on 30 April 2018. The laptop was picked up as promised and was sent to Poland for fixing the issue. Finally, the laptop was sent back with a note that the motherboard has been replaced. When I turn on the laptop, I see there is a bit locker key set. Called up the technical support again and they do not have any clue about this. Since the authorized person working on the issue seems to have messed up. All support person mentioned is that he could send a mail and wait for the response or laptop must be sent back to Poland again to get the bit locker key issue fixed. When asked where can I complain about this issue since this is not acceptable to me, he just said you need to send a mail and hung up. Long story short, I still do not have a working laptop after over a month. Does anyone know if there is an email address or a contact number where I can raise my voice against this service? Has anyone else faced these kind of i... Read more

Check the time/date settings in the BIOS/SETUP and make sure that they match the time/date set in Windows.    If the BIOS date/time keeps changing, it could point to a weak CMOS/RTC battery, although normally a system that new would not have that issue already.

I just received this new dock this week after trying 2 others. For the past few days after a few minutes the WUDFHost.exe will start taking 20-30% of the CPU, the fan revs up, and my mouse pointer disappears on the monitors. I can still use the mouse, drag windows, etc. Just can't see the pointer or it won't show until the mouse sets still for awhile. Killing this process solves the issue, but it comes back quickly. Issue seems to coincide with the network card usage. Working with Filezilla today seemed to trigger it, but usually web browsing will do it.  I have updated all drivers and the Dock firmware. However it still says I need the dock firmware update even though it installed (two reboots). Now it errors when trying the install again. Things I have tried.I have had as many as 8 Virtual network adapters show up. Uninstalled all and Disabled Hyper-V service. No change. Removed one monitor - No changeI have tried different monitors. No change (although HDMI seems better than DVI with adapter.)Moved all USB devices and network cable to the laptop, out of the dock. No change)I have reinstalled drivers.
