Is upgrading ThinkPad T410 to Windows 10 risky?

Question: Is upgrading ThinkPad T410 to Windows 10 risky?

I have a T410 with Windows 7 Professional which Microsoft invited to upgrade to Win 10. In "preparing" the computer for Win 10 a message indicated that some functions would not work. I did not realize that in taking the next step (whateve that was at the time) it would gto ahead with the upgrade. I found that the offer to choose "when" to upgrade was a choice of three different pre-assigned days. I had to turn off the computer to stop the upgrade, there was no other way (I tried Task Manager, Process Explorer, Alt F4, etc.). Now it is just reserved and waiting. My concerns are: -will an upgrade result in a Windows 10 "Professional"? or will distinctions between "Home" and "Profesional" be lost? -the preparation process indicated that Intel PROSet/ Wireless would have to be re-installed. As best as I can understand from the Intel site the wireless adaptor | Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN | in the T410 is not supported in Win 10. The Intel site said to go to the manufacturer. Will Lenovo have an update for this? -Intel PROSet/Wireless may not be critical to me but a wireless driver will be. Will the T410 wireless function still function? Has anyone had experience with the T410 moving to Win 10? Thanks.

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.)

Hi and welcome, ssumOfficially, upgrade to the win10 on the T410 isn't supported:https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103535- win10 reduction matches the source OS.- definitely, Lenovo will not update the win10 drivers for the Intel 6200 itself, it's a deal of the Intel. But as you noticed there are no upgrades toohttps://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/59470/Intel-Centrino-Advanced-N-6200-Dual-Band- win8/10 manages wireles features from the metro app (Lenovo Settings, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/lenovo-settings/9wzdncrfj12p#app-details) and Charms.

Hi NickSteel,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
Uninstall the current Wifi driver from the system and do not update the drivers from Windows update, use only ThinkVantage system update utility to update the latest drivers for your system hardware.
 
Hope this helps!

I have installed on my Thinkpad T410 (MIM: 2522AR3) Windows 10 PRO 32 bits and works fine. I need to upgrade from Windows 10 32 bits to 64 bits and I follow all the Microsoft steps in order to do a clean installation of the 64 bits version. I generate the ISO image on an USB stick in order to boot the notebook with this USB stick. Up to this point all works fine. The problem starts when I want to boot with the 64 bits ISO on my USB stick. The installation begin but some minutes after, the notebook shut down and  start booting again and again, until I disconnect the USB stick. I recieved no messagges. So, I can not install the 64 bits Windows 10 version. Some of you experienced the same problem? It is possible to install Windows 10 64 bits versión on a T410?  I will thanks a lot your comments and/or recommendations. Thanks in advance and have a nice day!! 

Answer:Thinkpad T410 and Windows 10 64 bits.

Try booting the computer using the USB stick, then once it boots then remove the USB stick, and let the install take place.  My guess is during the install the computer reboots at some point and with the USB stick still in the machine it boots to it first and keeps rebooting automatically as a result.  I seem to recall a time given before the system restarts if no selection is made.

Answer:T410 bluetooth driver missing after upgrading to Windows 10

Dear Waddie,
 
Welcome in lenovo community,
 
I think that you are facing a compatibility  issue,
 
Cause lenovo did not test or released all the compatible windows 10 drivers for the T410 yet.
 
But you can try to right click the BT driver from the device manager and choose Update Driver Software.

Answer:Windows 10 upgrade Thinkpad T410 Webcam Not Working After

HiSo here is how I solved the integrated camera being not recognized/detected by Windows 10.- I went Into Device Manager, uninstalled the unrecognized USB device.- Shut down the laptop. Removed the battery.- Pry out the plastic frame surrounding the screen to uncover the camera.- Remove the two screws retaining the camera and unplug it.- put back the battery and wait for Windows to load and log in as usual.- wait for all drivers and programs to load normally.- plug the camera back in.- you'll normally hear Windows detecting a new device and will automatically install it. Check your device manager for an imaging device. You should see an imaging device in the list.- to test if it's working properly, you can use Skype and see if it detects the camera in the video settings.

I just got a set of Bluetooth speakers and tried pairing them with my laptop last night.  Although it detected and paired to the speakers, it couldn't detect the type of driver.  After looking online I installed the Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software II for Windows 7.  It then found the appropriate driver and the speakers worked fine after the installation. This morning I restarted the laptop, and it hasn't been working since.  It will boot (very slowly) and sometimes get as far as the login screen.  After logging in however (the mouse locks up at this point) it will never get to my desktop, it will just go to a black screen and sit with the pointer in the middle.  I have tried booting it in safe mode, running a repair, and none of this has worked.  Is there anything I can do to fix this?

I have Windows 7, some data backed up but not all. Its asking if I want to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

1. Will this kick out some of my programs like MS Office etc, or will all programs work fine as before?

2. Can it go faulty half way through the upgrade, or are there very good safeguards against this built into Windows 10 upgrade?

I fear I could have a system that doesn't restart then I am buggered!

Thanks,

Jon

Answer:Should I upgrade to Windows 10 from 7, or risky?

If you like Windows 7 then stay with Windows 7

1) Usually not, but a program could be incompatible.

2) As long as your power does not go off you should be fine, and if it did, the install would just resume.

If you do not want to install Windows 10, then have a look at these.

A couple of years ago Microsoft started issuing really creepy updates to Windows 7. Some of them installed Windows 10 automatically!!! While others sent telemetry back home. At the same time it became apparent that Microsoft cannot be trusted because Windows 10 spies on its users (no doubt girls are the real targets).
 
Upon discovering this, I immediately found lists of all the 'telemetry' and Win 10 updates and uninstalled them. I also set my computer to "Never check for updates". (I had originally set it to "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" but I discovered that this option can't be trusted and will still automatically install certain updates.)
 
Since then, I haven't been installing any new Windows updates, partly because I simply do not trust Microsoft at all, and partly because there doesn't seem to be any reliable source of information about which new updates can be trusted.
But I'm wondering how risky is this? I'd love to have all the latest legitimate security updates as I don't want viruses, but then again I don't want my OS sending telemetry home! It's not that I've got anything to hide - I haven't - it's just the principle of wanting privacy.

Answer:How risky is it to disallow Windows updates?

It is risky, and foolish, to block Windows Updates on any version of Windows.   No one has said it better than one of our very own BSOD experts:
 
There really isn't a point to checking for updates and not installing them. . .  It's important to install all available updates. I've been doing this since the days of DOS, and I still don't have the confidence to pick and choose among updates.  There are just too many variables involved - and most people can't evaluate the full consequences of installing/not installing updates.
        ~ John Carrona, AKA usasma on BleepingComputer.com, http://www.carrona.org/
 
If you distrust Microsoft that much then you need to find an alternative OS, plain and simple, that you are willing to allow updates to be applied to.

Hi,  I guess this Questions might have been asked here. But T410 was not mentioned. I'm planning to order a SSD and since this is the very first time in my life that I'm actually going to use as SSD, I don't know head or tail about it. I read some threads and some users are facing, problems with the 840 Pro and some are facing problem with 840 Evo version and so on. Also one more thing is, What are the Original SSDs from Lenovo which Lenovo Supports, since they don't manufacture any SSDs. So, I want to know from fellow Thinkpad T410 users, which is the best SSD for the T410. P.S. 1.I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate. No issues with Drivers or BIOS or HDD or anything. Just want to upgrade to SSD for faster speeds.  2. I'm looking to buy a 480GB or 500GB or 512GB capacity, since different manufactureres have different capacities around 500GB range Thank You for Your time.

Answer:SSD for a Thinkpad T410

Hi,Lenovo offers a lot SSD models for different laptops and lines. Presently there are no principal differences of speed parameters between consumer SSDs (not corporate or data center lines) within one price level market segment. Because of the most of SSDs for laptops in 2.5" formfactor are based on the single controller SF-2281.So, don't worry about speed parameters. Choose any SSD you'll find, based on the price, SSD capacity, reliability technology you'll read about, manufacturer reputation etc.Another reason is the parameters of the drive t410 supports: a) 2.5", 9.5 mm in high (some SSDs are 7 mm in high but have additional 2.5 mm bezel to be fitted into the 9.5 mm bay tightly);b) sata II (3 gb/s) specification, that's why there is no reason to buy the fastest drive since the modern drives usually support sata III specification, backward compatible with sata II.One of the good feature for drive choosing that might be helpful is hardware-based full disk encryption (FDE) support if you are using apps that need fast encryption. Have a look at the wiki for detals, for example.The number of such drives on the market is not big.Do not buy too old model, 2..3+ years on the market. Do not buy the newest model.Regarding the drive vendors for Lenovo laptops - Intel, Samsung, Toshiba, SanDisk, LiteOn... But it's not necessarily to buy the drive from Lenovo supplier for laptop out of the warranty. There are also Crucial, Corsair, Kingston, Transcend, Plextor with very good products... Read more

Question: Thinkpad T410

Hi I'm hoping someone can help with my problem below: I've got a ThinkPad T410 and a docking station and I've got a switch box, so I can either use my desktop PC or my work laptop (the ThinkPad). My desktop works fine and displays on my monitor, however when I switch to my laptop nothing is displayed and the monitor goes to sleep. However if I unplug the monitor cable from the back of the docking station and plug directly intothe side of the laptop it all works fine. I've tried pressing the fan key and then IF, but that doesn't do anything. Any ideas? Hopefully it's just a setting that needs changing. Many Thanks Paul

Answer:Thinkpad T410

the laptop is probably having problem recognising the external display through the switch box, basically laptop video port can't detect a feedback loop from the monitor and thus it is not registering the video port as having been connected to anything. Some KVM switch box does have this issue.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 when installing a new Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB and now my internal SD card reader which I think is a Ricoh will not work when I insert a SD above 4GB, it works for smaller cards.  I have tried installing the drivers from the Lenovo KB and my Windows Troubleshooter says all drivers for that device are up to date.  One thing that I have noticed is that when I insert the card the Ricoh device pops up, but also responds with an uninstalled PCI Serial Port.  I do not know what device this is, but it doesn't show up unless an SDHC card is inserted and remains after I take it out, but when I do a restart it has disappeared and it is not there if I insert a 4gb SD card first.  Another thing I have noticed is that the card does pop up in the Disk Management utility, but it is unreadable.  I have checked the card on cameras and a friend's computer and know that it works and is not corrupted.  See pics below and the PCI serial port ID # and you can see my frustration... hopefully someone can help fix this issue, I need to read SDHCs for work all the time and would prefer not to have to buy a peripheral device to do the job...

Hello again. After posting the fact that my L520 Win 7 64 bit occasionally froze, I got a reply suggesting that the memory might need upgrading, so I decided to take the advice and upgraded to 8GB. I also decided to upgrade to Windows 8 64 bit. Not a good experience. I had all sorts of difficulties getting the machine to work and had to resort to the Lenovo support site to download driver updates. Unfortunately, the built in camera, which uses the Ricoh driver 1.1.0.1132 dated 4/10/2010 isn't compatible with Windows 8. After several frustrating hours searching the web, I gave up and called Lenovo support. I was shocked to receive their advice which is to RE-INSTALL WINDOWS 7! They said that this would be straight forward, but I would lose all my data!I really don't fancy that idea, but do need to get my camera working as I use SKYPE quite a lot.Has anyone got a solution?Also, for what its worth, with the larger RAM and being on Windows 8 - the laptop still occasionally freezes. I think there may be a bug in the Trackpad software?Thanks

hree days ago I was writing a LaTeX document in Windows 8 and the screen of my Thinkpad T410 turned off for a few milisecond and then turned on again, and it did that like ten times in one hour. Then, all the screen looked awful (like bigger letters and things like that) so I turned it off.

After thirty minutes I turned it on again and it worked fine. But some hours later the same happened. Then, I turned it on again and worked fine for like 8 hours.

The next day, the computer worked well for 4 hours and started doing the same.

The next day, I turned it on, it didn't work for a few minutes (black screen, white dots and blue lines) and then Ubuntu 14.04 started working but firstly it said:
[ 0.814713] ACPI PCC probe failed
[ 0.837643] tpm_tis 00:05: A TPM error (6) occurred attempting to read a pcr value

Here are some pictures (I can't upload them to the thread):

Yesterday I was using it perfectly but it stopped working when I moved it (I didn't move it in a very hard way...)

Hi Xinc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with battery charging in your T410 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that to charge the laptop from external power supply, please check the battery with other machine, also other battery in this machine this is to confirm the battery is working fine.
 
Also swap the adapter and check for the issue, confirm if any error on the screen when both battery and adapter are connected
 
Check if the charging port is damaged also check in different power supplies.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

Answer:Thinkpad T410 issues

Hi Ernesty,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with LSC error on your ThinkPad T410.
 
It is not an issue, check updating the system with ThinkVantage System update utility and after that check with running LSC once again.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Hi there,I'm new to the board,I'm looking into setting up "PC to TV" on my "new to me but 4yr old" Thinkpad T410 Intel(R)HD Graphics (Corei5) to a Hitachi  Plasma 37PD 5200E (not HD)I have an s-video cable already installed under the floor to other side of the room to TV from a previous "PC to TV" setup...which I am keen on trying to make use of.I'm not bothered about the Audio as we have external speakers from the Laptop.I was thinking that I could possibly use the existing s-video cable by having an adaptor on each end  (vga to s-video adaptor) so that I could come from the vga on the laptop and at the other end plug the vga adaptor into the analog input rgb2  PC socket which is a  vga female skt. on the TV.. .A roundabout way of doing it but would it work ?As a btw ...just looked at the Intel graphics and media control panel, clicking on advanced mode you see the following :-general settingsmultiple displayscolor resolutionsmonitor/tv settings .....(are not supported)Or would I need a VGA to RCA converter box as some have suggested in other situations.Thanks in anticipation...

Hi,
 
I am new to this forum.
 
In the last 2 months, I have purchased a T410, I did replace the existing drive with SSD, the system works well.
 
Now it is time to review how to make a system working well, work awesome.
 
The question I have relates to the Lenovo tools loaded on the computer.
 
I have friends who purchase consumer grade computers and blow off all the crapware the manufacturers load on their laptops like trial software and other utilities.
 
I do see a few Lenovo utilities like the following:
 
Thinkvantage Toolbox
Access Manager
Power Manager
 
The Thinkvantage Toolbox also has the rescue and restore app which is the only service I use actively.
 
The Access Manager seems to be redundant to the tools offered in Windows 7 except it does have easy access to setup mobile broadband (very nice when I load my SIM card in the laptop).
 
The Power Manager seems to be redundant with the tools as well in Windows 7.
 
Questions:
 
Is it highly recommended to uninstall the Thinkpad tools loaded by Lenovo, do they create more issues than they resolve?
 
If the answer to 1st question is yes, is there a way via Windows 7 to connect to mobile broadband without Access Connections?
 
Is there a way of keeping Rescue and Restore without keeping all of Thinkvantage Toolbox?
 
The computer is fast, I am just at an investigating stage.
 
Thank You
 
Moderator edit: Added detail to Subject.

Answer:Which ThinkPad tools to keep on my T410?

No, you don't need to uninstall them but you can if you don't like/want/need them.Most of the Lenovo tools are redundant. For example, Access Connections, Power Manager, and the fingerprint reader software can be removed without consequence unless you're using the features of those programs.Just beware of Power Manager's uninstaller since it will probably fail and cripple the computer's ability to actually boot (it will do a system restore and leave Power Manager there to begin with, thus nullifying your efforts).I believe that you can remove the Toolbox without touching Rescue and Restore.If I recall correctly you don't need Access Connections to use the mobile broadband card, either.But there are a couple features unique to these programs.For example, pulling Fingerprint Manager removes your ability to use single-sign-on from boot: you swipe your finger across the reader to power on and you then don't need to enter another password.

Hello, I'm about to upgrade HDD on my thinkpad T410 and I can't decide what to buy. So, I need to decide between a WD Scorpio Black 750GB 7200RPM or a WD scorpio Blue 1 TB and 5400 rpm. So can you please help me decide which one is better for my computer Thanks.

Answer:Thinkpad T410 HDD upgrade

Between the two, I would opt for the Scorpio Black.  I replaced my original T510 HDD with a Scorpio Black.  Then, I replaced it with a Seagate Momentus XT hybrid and it really improved performance, especially boot/load time. I have now replaced the Momentus XT with a Samsung 830 SSD, and it is even faster, but only by about 10 seconds on boot/load. Boot time to fingerprint/PW entry with the XT was about 38 seconds  I sent the used XT to a friend, and the comment back was "Wow!"

Hi everyone,
Need a new laptop for my computer science degree, considered quite a few. Was just wondering if anyone has an oppinion on the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2516, I would upgrade it as follows:
i5-460m processor
windows 7 home premium 64
3/4GB RAM
320GB 7200rpm hard drive
9 cell battery
Anyone think i should upgrade it differently, I'd like to get it a little cheaper so where if anywhere should i make the cuts in upgrades?
Has anyone got this laptop? is it particularly heavy to carry around?

Answer:Is it risky to install unsigned drivers if Windows recomends them?

Hello JL. Hope you survived Irene without any problems.

It should be OK to install an unsigned driver if Microsoft/Windows recommends it. But at a minimum it's a good idea to create a Restore Point prior to the installation. (A system image would be even better.) Then if you have any issues you can roll back your machine.

Since Windows 8.1 there has always been an option to Reset or Refresh your computer to deal with any issues that might come up. Refreshing your system kept all of your files in place and any Store apps but reset system settings just to clear any conflicts.

The Reset option performed much like a clean install by wiping out not only your personal files but any installed apps and desktop programs. When the Reset process completed you found yourself at the original out of box experience to set Windows up again from scratch.

This was very handy and straight forward in Windows 8/8.1 and past builds of Windows 10.

However, in the latest build of Windows 10, in an apparent effort to make the process more useful and informative Microsoft has introduced a higher level of risk to those users who have more than one hard drive in their system.

Hello, I have recently been having some trouble with my ThinkPad T410. For the past 2 months, sometimes (but not every time) when I switch it on, I just get a black screen. I turn it off and on again, and then it starts up. However, last week when this happened, I turned it off and on again, and the start up lights began flashing on and off, and I could hear it whirring each time the lights flashed, but it couldn't fully start up. (It felt similar to when a car won't start, when the ignition doesn't catch.) I took it to the local computer shop and they have said that the motherboard is broken. Does this sound right? Has anybody else had these symptoms? And if this does seem like the right diagnosis, how do I ensure that the motherboard doesn't break on my next laptop (is it something I've done, like using it on my lap instead of a table?!)? I would be grateful for any thoughts on this. Thanks, Lucy

Answer:ThinkPad T410 motherboard broken?

I think that computer repair places ALWAYS say that the motherboard is broken.  Your machine is 6 years old, and, eventually, something does break and it may be nobody's fault.  There are lots of pieces and other ones can cause your symptoms.  I always like to test the memory and the hard drive..  I would run CrystalDiskInfo (freeware) and see what it thinks about your hard drive.
 
What operating system are you running?  If windows 10, open the Start menu, type ?Windows Memory Diagnostic?, and press Enter.
 
If windows 7, Click Start, type mdsched.exe in the Search box, and then press Enter

Hi! I live in Hungary. I have a Thinkpad T410 it's still under warranty. I bought it from a guy who got it from another guy who works for an major IT company. (The company got some Thinkpad for free from Lenovo because they are relatively big costumers and the guy bought them for cheap money. Maybe it's a bit illegal but it was a very good deal.) In Hungary the Lenovo service (formal IBM service) do the repairs without warranty papers they're just checking the serial number so I can live with my warranty without the warranty papers/bills. Now I'd like to extend my warranty from 3 years to 4 and here comes the question: will I can do it without warranty papers? My girlfriend has an SL 510 (from legal source) and when I bought her a warranty extension lenovo doesn't need from any warranty papers from her. It was a simple thing but what about in this case with my T410? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance and sorry for my possible wrong English.  (z)

Answer:Warranty upgrade on Thinkpad T410

Since the machine is under warranty you can simply buy a warranty extension. The warranty follows the machine and is transferable in the event the machine is sold.

I've researched, but this issue is strange/unique. I use the United Airline clubs around the country as I travel.  When I first access a new network, Thinkvantage recognizes it as a new network, and I add it under the appropriate city name and it works.  When I go to another city's United club, it thinks it's the same wireless network as the previous city, connects to that old network, and I don't have connectivity. I must then delete the network from Thinkvantage, and find and add the new network at which time it works.  If you save 1 AT&T wireless network, it thinks they're all the same, so I find myself constantly deleting wifi network profiles, and readding as the new appropriate network name. It's a real ass pain.   Anyone have any ideas as to how I can configure Thinkvantage to tell the difference between networks? Thanks, Pete

This post may reflect my lack of experience with notbooks, but I have a question regarding my brand new Thinkpad T410. I didn't choose the notebook myself, it was given to me through my employer. Naturally all administrator privileges are non-existing, so I have to rely on my company's "technical support" for any changes to the software. Now, if I'm not mistaken this computer should be ready for a sim-card and 3G internet connection (That's WWAN, right?). Model is 2522-WTX. Now, in device manager, I cannot find anything regarding a WWAN module, allthough there is a SIM-card slot under the battery. I have allready called for my employers support department to help me out, but I know that they just started buying the Lenovo computers, and they don't have that much experience setting them up.

Answer:Thinkpad T410 Wireless card

Welcome to the forum!
 
You can replace the card with the exact same one - likely your best bet - BUT make sure that it's a Lenovo-issued card with a proper FRU number on it, otherwise you'll get an error on boot.
 
Good luck.

Let's me start by saying I love my thinkpad! There is just one thing I don't like abtou it, and that is the specs it has atm. This is the laptop I'm using right now: ThinkPad T410 2539 - Core i5 520M / 2.4 GHz - vPro - RAM 4 GB - 320 GB - DVD-brander - HD Graphics - Gigabit Ethernet - WLAN : 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 - TPM - vingerafdruklezer - 14.1 inch; breedbeeld TFT 1280 x 800 ( WXGA ) The thing is, It's perfect for simple office task, but I'm really missing some grapich power when I'm off from work and on the road. So I was wondering, what options are there for upgrading the Videocard/CPU?

Answer:Thinkpad T410 Upgrade option

CPU you can exchange somewhat easily. Upgrading the GPU requires replacing the motherboard entirely.

About two weeks ago, I began getting BSODs on a 9 month old ThinkPad T410 running Win Professional 7x64, OEM. This is the original install of the OS, and there have been no recent hardware changes. Prior to this issue, the machine has performed without any failures.

Today's failure happened quite spontaneously (or so it seemed to me) while the ThinkPad was sitting unattended and unused for about 15 minutes.

Thanks very much for your assistance.

I have a brand new T410 (less than a week old) and I have been having problems with it. When I first got it, right out of the box I would get a "windows does not recognize one of your usb devices" message, and when I went to device manager "unknown device" was the issue. So I uninstalled it, and I thought that was that. A couple days later, I started getting BSoDs with the error code "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER". I have gotten a bunch since then (I would guess around 10) and they seem to happen fairly randomly; I haven't been able to pick up a pattern. Here's some basic system information:

OS- Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. Came pre-installed. I have not reinstalled it.
Like I said, my computer is less than a week old. Well, it shipped out of Lenovo's warehouse on june 21st, but it arrived around july 6th or 7th.
I have an intel graphics media accelerator HD (not sure if that's the name of the video card or not?)

Anyways, any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

G'day folks! At my workplace I have recently been given a ThinkPad T410 as my main workstation for my office. I use to have an Apple 30" monitor connected to my PC which had a dual-link cable. That set-up was giving me a 2560x1600 desktop area to work on. With the new ThinkPad T410, I have not been able to find a way to get the same resolution. I have purchased a 45J7915 cable with not much luck. Any way I try I am getting a maximum of 1920x1200. How could I get 2560x1600?? JF NeronQuebec city, CANADA

I defraged my computer, removed temporary files, and deleted many files but still only have 65.6 GB Free Space. I'm careful on which websites I use, I use Google safe search and go on anti virus protection approved websites. I checked my C drive and programs folder has 5.51 GB and Windows folder 27.9 GB. Every other folder in the C drive has much smaller size in KB. My dad bought my Thinkpad T410 and I always assumed that having around 60 GB Free was normal since he installed programs for me. But I was a little bit sketchy that there was only 60 GB free, but assumed it was normal because of the program files my dad installed. But I realized the program files are too small to take up very much space. I had this labptop for less than two years and had to use my warranty several times for dragging arrow  (replaced keyboard) and replace fan multipe times. How Come I Only 65.6 GB Free Space and 156 GB Already?: Thinkpad T410

Hi guys and/or girls, I am working on upgrading a business laptop which happens to be the Lenovo Thinkpad T410, now im putting an 250GB 850 Evo to replace the INSANELY SLOW HDD, however i am also upgrading the system from windows 7 and upgrading the RAM, now here is where i need help, I am going to be installing a 2x4GB kit of Corsair Vengence SODIMM, however I am unsure whether i should go for the DDR3 1600 kit or the DDR3L 2133 kit, now these are both the same price so the obvious pick would be the DDR3L due to the lower power draw and higher frequency, but the current memory installeld is only 1333, however the laptop is documented to work with 1600 so i know this isn't a problem, however I am unsure if it would even correctly downclock the 2133 or would it simply refuse to post, as well as this, would the laptop still attempt to send 1.5v to the memory or will it automatically do 1.35v as required by the DDR3L, oh how i do wish laptops all offered an "advanced" section within the BIOS which would allow me to tweak all of this stuff, however the only thing the bios lets me do with memory is set an extended mem test during boot which obviously is no help.  Thanks for your help

Hey there ... I'm trying to upgrade the memory on a 2011 T410 Thinkpad. It curerntly has 1x4gb of PC3-10600 DDR3 1333 SODIMM ram on-board under the keyboard.  I purchased the following Mushkin 1x 4g module at Canada Computers and it doesn't work. With the module it won't boot.  http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=24_309&item_id=076746 In the picture on the Canada Computers website there's 8 chips on each side whereas the actual module only has 4 chips on each side. I understand with 4 chips it's higher density, vs lower density with 8 chips per. The memory on board the T400 has 8 chips per side. Should this make a difference and is the lower density still available anywhere.  Can anyone recommend some memory that would work in this model. It's a Lenova Thinkpad T410 #2516CTO Also ... should I buy a pair of the same modules and replace the current module or can I just add the new module.  Thanks.

Hi,I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 laptop (Product number: 2522AA9, BIOS: 6IET85WW (1.45) ). A glass of water was poured on the laptop and it fellt down from desk. Motherboard was damaged I bought a motherboard installed and it worked. I realized that WiFi card was also damaged as it fellt down. I bought exact the same model (If I recall correctly it is Intel WiFi card) but I am getting 1802 Error: Unauthorized network card at boot. I searched for this problem a lot and found some pages that explain how to fix it. No method worked for me. One of the solutions is that, there is a no1802.iso file it must be burnt onto a CD but I don't have any CD/DVD Burner. So I created a bootable USB stick with this iso file and booted laptop from USB stick but it didn't help. The problem is still there. How can I solve this problem?Thanks.

Answer:Thinkpad T410 and Error 1802

The "no1802" utility was only for much older machines.  It won't work for you.  
 
The same model isn't enough.  You need one with a Lenovo FRU on it.  The same card can have different firmware on it.  When Lenovo or another manufacturer gets a machine approved for sale, they need FCC certification regarding emission levels in U.S. and other similar things in other countries.  The FCC certification is for a particular model computer and the wireless card(s) that were tested with it including the firmware tested.  You probably bought a card that was certified for use in a didderent manufacturer's computer.

Hi guysI'm new to this sort of thing so please be gentle. As a working pc engineer, I can resolve most things, but this one has got me.I have a customer T410 stripped in the workshop, whos symptoms are an extremely feint display to the point that it can barely be seen. Ok I thought, been here a few times before. Tested the machine with an external display and all was fine. Replaced the screen but symptom still persists... Next I looked at the invertor, except these don't have one. It has a sub board apparently, so no worries, found one of them online & replaced it.Still the symptom persists. Next up, close examination of the video ribbon. I noticed there were a couple of dark spots that looked like minor burn marks about the size of the end of a pencil. Off to the states again for a new one. 6 days later it arrives, swapped it out, STILL same symptom. I have now run out of options other than to say to myself, "must be a faulty motherboard".If anyone has any intimate knowledge about this model, your input would be GRATEFULLY accepted. I've read one or two things about some sort of magnetic switch arrangement for switching the display off, but to be honest, I am now out of my comfort zone. And to make matters worse of course, the customer is also a close friend... Pleeeease help

Answer:THINKPAD T410 feint screen

All of the machines have fuses on the motherboard that can cause these symptoms when blown. If there is a burn spot on the old cable, there was likely a short somewhere that blew the fuse. Lenovo is going to tell you that it cannot be replaced, but some repair places have the equipment to do it. The one most likely to be the problem will be labled F7

Hello Guys, I am using lenovo T410 with Windows 7 64 bit OS. One RAM slot is installed with 2GB RAM from hynix. I tried to upgrade it by installing another 4GB RAM from PNY (DDR3 PC3 - 10666) in the rare slot. After few minutes of booting laptop issued blue screen error. I tried all the combinations to corner the problem and I suspected defective stick. So I've returned the stick now.  Can anyone here please share the exact specifications for the DDR that I should be installing in T410? (It would be great help if someone could point to the exact product online )

Hello,  I would like the buy a larger hard drive for my laptop. I understand that I will need to go through the windows reinstall, but I dont have a windows cd. I do have the license # on the bottom of the machine. Can I just download the software? Also, where do I get driver info and the IBM software? Can I just d/l system update and let that do all the work?  Thanks.

Answer:Upgrading Hard Drive - Wanting to start clean - No Windows CD [Thinkpad T60]

Use the ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery utility that came installed on your ThinkPad to burn a set of recovery CD/DVDs. You can then use these to create a clean install on your new hard disk. If you've deleted R&R from your system you can purchase a set of recovery media from Lenovo. As for System Update, Lenovo killed it on April 1st. And no, that's not an April Fool's Day joke  So for the time being you'll have to go to the Support page fot T60 on Lenovo's website, locate the Driver Matrix and manually determine what needs updating then manually download and install it. And yes, that is a cruel joke.

hey slither,kindly reinstall the original OS that came with your unit. have it on mono-boot, no linux OS installed.test the wireless card again and get back to us. i suspect that the linux you have installed might have caused the issue.

I was planning on updating my video drivers for my Quadro FX 880M to the Verde drivers for performance improvements but have been hestitant given Lenovo's video driver offering.  The most recent driver's available on Lenovo's website is 8.16.11.8825, but on my machine the current display drivers are 8.16.11.8898, which is the nVidia switchable graphics driver that Lenovo has slated for the T410s/i.  Why is this on my machine? Should I roll back to 8.16.11.8825 and then install verde or just install verde as is or be cautious? I ran automatic updates from Lenovo and Windows when I first started my machine and havn't downloaded anything yet.  Just want to know if anyone has the same experience and why Lenovo says that I have one driver that was supposed to be on another machine. I havn't ran into any signifigant problems yet (knock on wood) but I would like to have the 3D performance improvements. I am running Windows 7 64-bit, BIOS version 1.17.

Answer:Thinkpad T410 Video Drivers on my new W510?

8898 is the latest update from the thinkvantage update, but they still have 8825 on the website. Don't roll back, stay with 8898. It's still an ancient (year+ old) version - so I'm hoping for a better update sooner than later.

At the risk of turning my still active and sturdy T410 laptop into a rogue bot, I have been searching for the update to the i5 chipset to block the security issues raised by INTEL a few weeks ago. Oddly, (or maybe due to the 'vintage') LENOVO support for the T410 seems to have been dropped. Would think LENOVO would want to keep their name off of the 'machines that create havoc' list by providing, at a minimum, the patch that INTEL has created for most of it's families of processors. Help, anyone?
