  • Issue#46002: Lenovo - X1 Carbon 3rd gen with two external 2560x1440 monitors?

    I have a 20BS X1 Carbon i7 with the internal 2560x1440 display and the OneLink Pro dock. I also have two external Dell 2560x1440 monitors; these monitors have three ports: Display Port, HDMI and VGA. I'm trying to figure out how to get everything connected so I can run all three displays at 2560x1440. I cannot use the DVI port on the OneLink Pro dock because the maximum resolution on the dock's DVI port is 1920x1200: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd029981 At first, I ran one external monitor to the DisplayPort port on the dock and the other monitor to the HDMI port on the laptop. The monitor connected to the dock worked at 2560x1440, but the montior on the HDMI port did not work at all. If I disconnect the dock from the laptop, then the montior connected to the laptop via HDMI turns on immediately work runs at 2560x1440, when I reconnect the dock, it turns off. Next, I took the monitor that was connected to the HDMI port, and plugged it into the mi

  • Issue#797869: Lenovo - TrackPoint behaviour issue on X1 Carbon (3rd Gen)

    I think most users know that TrackPoint has an auto-correction mechanism to avoid permanent physical tilt.That is, when TrackPoint is pushed towards a direction with constant force for several seconds, that direction will be corrected as "zero-point". Therefore you'll observe a counter-movement when releasing TrackPoint. What I want to mention is that, back on X220, if you press middle-button when pushing TrackPoint, the above mechanism will never be triggered regardless of how long or how hard you push. This is a correct and thoughtful design, because when middle-button is pressed, such tilt should be user-generated rather than permanent physical. However, on X1 Carbon (3rd gen), the auto-correction mechanism will be triggered even when middle-button is pressed. This is NOT a correct behaviour.I guess such behaviour is coded in Synaptics driver.  If so, please kindly contact them to correct this behaviour. Thanks.

  • Issue#28043: Lenovo - Lenovo Carbon X1 3rd Gen-Worst Purchase Ever!

    When I bought my Lenovo Carbon x1 3rd Gen., I was really excited about buying a laptop considered best in its class and I was looking forward to boosting my productivity. Right out of the box, my laptop came damaged-the sound volumes would spike or the bass would cut out and in intermittenly while giving presentations. THIS WAS NEW OUT OF THE BOX. I then called Lenovo support, who was not able to diagnose the problem. They just recorded it. Then my sound jack stopped working. I called in, they support wrongfully diagnosed it as a motherboard problem. He called to send a tech out. I took the day off the next day, the tech did not come. Never called. Next day someone came, replaced the motherboard. Sound jack still not working, sound problem still there. Next day another person came, nothing got fixed, and then he messed up my left usb jack. Now I’m being told in order to get my laptop sent in and rushed back to me, I have to pay $20?!

    Hi, the Wi-Fi capability on my laptop is gone after a hard reboot. THE ISSUEStarted having this problem of my laptop not waking up from sleep after closing the lid for an extended period of time. No biggie, I'll just turn it off and turn it back on by holding the power button (hard reboot). Everything works fine except all wifi capability is gone. Under network & internet in the setting menu there is no wifi option. In device manager there is no wireless LAN under the network adapters. It is like there is no wifi driver.Ethernet still works, and I was able to get the wifi working for some time, but if the hard reboot happens again, the wifi is gone and I must scramble to fix it again. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONSI've tried reinstalling wifi drivers, checking the BIOS, performing system restores and I even went as far as resetting the system and supposedly reinstalling a fresh windows 10 but to no avail. I've been able to repair it for a short period of time (I'm not sure

  • Issue#110621: Lenovo - X1 Carbon 3rd Gen bluetooth cannot recognize audio receivers

    Hey everyone, My X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (Product Number: 20BSCTO1WW, BIOS : N14ET33W 1.11) cannot recognize two Bluetooth audio receivers (I use them to connect to my speakers). Both receivers can be recognized by my iPhone and iPad. One of them used to work fine with my T400. Haven't tried the new one with my T400. I'm running Windows 10 64 bit. Bluetooth driver up-to-date.  I noticed Lenovo Campanion kept suggesting install the Intel Bluetooth driver after nuemours installs. I eventually manually downloaded the driver from Lenovo website, and the Bluetooth driver disappeared from the "Optional" update list. Any ideas what do I need to do to make it work? Thanks a lot,Jack

  • Issue#124601: Lenovo - Barely 3 hours of battery life on a 3 month old 3rd Gen X1 Carbon

    Decided to take my laptop to scool last week to stream an NBA game during class.  When the game was over I had about 20% batterly life.  Barely enough juice to use the laptop to view websites.  That 20% battery life didn't last long at all.

    The other day I tried to (like many many times before) enter my password (I left it default 5 years) "123456" and hard disk did not let me access it.I have not changed password for sure, it just "stopped working".Few days prior, I remember while using it, it would stall while accessing data and I had to unplug it and plug it again. Appeared like it had some difficulty reading it. And then, once I plugged it, the password (by itself all of a sudden) stopped working. Anybody ever heard of anything like that?Any chance of fixing it? Thank you all

  • Issue#282749: Lenovo - Temperamental trackpad X1 Carbon 3rd gen

    Hey all,My first post here as I've never had any issues with any Thinkpads I've ever owned, but this one isn't as lucky!My trackpad on my X1 Carbon is very temperamental, sometimes it works, and sometimes it'll just stop working in the middle of using it. Closing the lid (putting it to sleep) and then opening it again seems to get it going again but it's not too long before it fails again... The red nipple thing doesn't work at all, no touch registered by it and occasionally it's not even registered in device manager or under mouse properties. So what have I done to try fix it? Everything possible, reinsalled windows (both 8.1 and 10), reinstalled a whole range of Synaptics drivers, taken the laptop fully appart and disconnected and reconnected everything. I've tried to do anything I can and I'm at a loss. I'm at University and I really need this laptop to work consistantly so if anyone knows anything that I could try to fix it, that'd greatly be appreciated!

  • Issue#355264: Lenovo - X1 Carbon 3rd Gen Noise and Sound Distortion with Wifi Traffic

    Hello everyone, I noticed that there are scratchy noises and very noticeable sound distortion with Wifi traffic on my 3rd Gen starting about 3 days ago. With the noises, the mouse becomes sluggish and video playback experiences small pauses, too. I have never had this problem before. The only thing I remember I changed recently is to hit the "Update Driver" button on the Wifi device in "Device Manager". I have already uninstalled the that device driver and downloaded the 18.40 one from Lenovo. It was good for about a day after installing the version 18.40 wifi driver, but the noises came back right after. I also noticed that any wifi traffic seems to trigger high CPU usage. I suspect this is the culprit, but couldn't find anything online. I suspect it has something to do with Windows 10 regular updates or the 18.40 wifi driver. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to fix this problem? Thank you very much for your help! Jack

I was hoping that I could pull my hard drives and put them in an external enclosure and access the data via my laptop - to rescue the data. I have attached them to my PC and I can see the files in the Share folder - but I cannot access them - i cannot copy them to my local hard drive, for example.  I get a message: Error 0x80070780: The file cannot be accessed by the system - when I try to copy them.  The files are all there in the original folder structure and I can navigate all around the drive and see the files - i just can't copy them. Can someone please help me determine how to rescue these files? Thank you! Rob

    The updates page and Lenovo update utility lists version 18.40.0 as a "critical" update.  I've tried to install it multiple times - manually downloading via Lenovo support site AND Lenovo System Update software. The "driver" in Device Manager is stuck at 18.32.0.5 - can't get it to update to 18.40.0! I've uninstalled the driver from Device Manager too - and then tried installing, but it only installs the 18.32.0.5 version. Updating via Device Manager also fails. What's going on? Is the driver not compatible with X1 carbon 3rd gen running Windows 10 64 bit? Fully updated. 

  • Issue#393774: Lenovo - X1 Carbon (3rd Gen.) only 4.5 hrs backup Windows 10

    I've been using my X1 Carbon 3rd gen. for about a month now. Immediately updated Win8 to Windows 10 - all my drivers and Windows is updated, except WiFi which is at 10.32.05. My brightness is always at 50% and using 200% scaling - I only get about 4 to 4.5 hours backup on this machine, without running any games, graphics/video editing/office software. In fact, I only use Chrome and usually have about 10-15 tabs open. No videos in those tabs, text sites. Only WiFi remains on - no bluetooth etc. Why such a low backup? Or is this "NORMAL" for X1c 3rd gen on Windows 10?

  • Issue#477078: [UbuntuGnome] Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon 3rd Gen

    I'm using a Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd Gen running ubuntu. A couple of days ago I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 running Gnome as my desktop. I normally disable the trackpad (why do they bother with that - it essentially makes the computer unusable) in the bios. At first everything worked fine but after I did a subsequent "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" the trackpad started working - though still disabled in the bios. There seems to be no way to disable it, either in the bios or in the gnome extension that supposedly handles mouse and touchpad config. The only way I have found to turn it off is to modify /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf by replacing the line MatchIsTouchpad "on" to "MatchIsTouchpad "off" in Section "inputClass". Unfortunately this also turned off the trackpoint and the computer is unusable. Is there a way to modify the config file to allow trackpoint to work without touchpad. Sorry if this is the wrong topic but not sure w

    I have used a 1T WD My Passport external hard-drive in Linux Mint 17.3 and Windows 7 dual-boot system on my Samsung laptop for months. I've just installed LM 17.3 Cinnamon on a Dell Optiplex GX280, but after using the Passport with that I can't open it in any of the os. I think that the problem is with the volume type, because in W7 disk management it shows as unallocated, nor is there a volume description under Disks in Linux.

  • Issue#529477: Lenovo - Notification Issue with Moto G 3rd Gen

    I recently purchased this phone for myself. When I first used it the notifications worked correctly and when one would come in it would pulse on the screen every few seconds. Giving time to see the notification if out on a table/desk. Because of how well this worked I purchased a second one for my mother. Recently (May coincide with upgrading to Marshmallow) this notification screen no longer fully functions on both phones and they now both do what I recorded in the video below. That is, pulse once then never show again. You are required to physically move the phone to check for any notifications, which makes the display pointless and the lack of led means absolutely no notifications at all for the most part. (That charging LED on the top, front of the phone would of been great, sigh). Is this a widespread issue and is it going to be fixed soon because as it stands currently I'm having to check my phone every 10 minutes encase I miss the once off pulse.

    Hi, for the last two weeks I'm having a problem when I use earphones on my Lenovo X1.  I've tried different earphones, and every time I put them on and plug them in the computer, audio will sound degraded: For example, when playing a movie trailer, human voices will sound so low that they can't be understood, but music will sound ok.

    I have photos on external HD, catalog is on laptop. When I plug in the external HD it lights up in the left pane, but no images show up. I have a pc, and the photos are accessible through explorer, all of them, so they're there, and the hd itself seems to be fine. Lightroom 6 just doesn't seem able to access them. Also, I had labelled the xternal drive W, but it shows up in both explorer and LR as E. I have tried renaming the drive W, but that didn't work either. I have used this Xternal HD in the past numerous times with no problem. OS is windows 10. I also have searched the forums because I know this can be a problem but didn't find any answers.
