Answer: Lenovo T410 Type 2537 keyboard: key is "hypersensitive"

Hi Jukras,

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

I?m really sorry to hear that ?Q? key in your Lenovo T410 is hypersensitive and responds to even a slight touch.
I would like to thank you for the efforts you have taken in cleaning the innards of the keypad.

Open Keyboard Properties by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel, then click Keyboard. Try adjusting the repeat delay and repeat rate in keyboard properties.

Also, could you please try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard drivers in device manager.

If the above attempts didn?t help to resolve the issue, I strongly suggest you to contact our technical support for assistance.

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.

Best Regards,
Mithun.

Hello everybody, I am trying to set up the bluetooth to work on Windows 8. Funnily enough everything went smooth with Ubuntu 14.04.So I am 100% sure this laptop has bluetooth hardware. Still, on the support website there is driver for bluetooth.It says it should be included in Windows 8 but I can't find it.Nor I can find the proper device in my control panel. Any hint? Thank you all.  

Answer:T410 2537 NQ6 bluetooth under Windows 8

Hello, Are you sure Windows 8 didn't install its native Bluetooth drivers? I've never had any problems with Bluetoothinstallation on any ThinkPads when either clean installing or upgrading to Windows 8. If you have the Thinkpad Hotkey Features Integration package installed, you can press FN+F5 to open upyour WiFi-Bluetooth window and enable the Bluetooth there. If not, the package is here: Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 8 See if this doesn't resolve the issue. Cheers.

I have a thinkpad T410 (2537-DN1) and my original power adapter is seeing some wear and tear that I have temporarily fixed with some electrical tape. My adapter is currently a 60W/20V model. What I am wondering is that I still have an adapter from my old T60. It's a 90W/20V model. Can I safely use it on my T410? My research has found both yes and no suggestions but nothing solid. Ergo, I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance, kate

Answer:wwan card in thinkpad t410 2537-BA2

Hi, tejas08881
 
From what I can see, the card is not in your system by default, so you would have to procure one. The card for your system is the Gobi 2000 for worldwide use, as shown here in this KnowledgeBase article. The correct part number for it is 60Y3183 and you should be able to give Lenovo India a call at 1-800-3000-9990 to order one if you'd like. Just make sure that the WWAN card is Lenovo-branded, as other cards will not be recognized in the BIOS.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Hi, I have T410 running Windows XP and SK-8821 USB keyboard. The keyboard is otherwise nice, but there's one huge problem. The F1 - F12 keys are by default assigned to spceial functions. (mute, colume control, sleep...) But I desperatly need the F keys to function as a regular F keys. Now when I need to press F3, I allways have to press the 'Fn' + F3. On the other hand, on my laptops keyboard the F keys work the right way around. I've heard that there might be an option to toggle F-Lock on BIOS, but will it affect only the USB keyboard, or will it then screw up the laptops keyboard by reversing also functionality on them? I can't test this easily because I don't have access to BIOS without the help from our IT department. Any other addvice what I might try? There seems to be no keyboard drivers or anything on the software side I could use to fix this keyboard.

I have a Lenovo T410 which has been exhibiting keyboard issues (several keys have failed and I've been using an external keyboard). It seems that the keyboard failure is affecting the powering up of the machine. Occasionally it will turn on, most of the time it will not. I've submitted an eService request for this and the status is "Solution Provided" but the "SO Status (as shown on ICSS)" is "On Hold" "Order on hold, pending update" (per: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT074324 ). This has been the case since the 28th of last month. I've confirmed it is a keyboard failure by swapping a keyboard from a T420 (which, ironically, had a service request fulfilled fine around the same time). I have two questions: i) most urgently, is there *any* way I can power the machine on without using the keyboard?ii) what do I do about the service request's "On Hold" status? this machine is out of action and key to our work.  

Answer:Lenovo T410 does not power on due to keyboard / power button issue.

i) There are three ways to power on the laptop without the power button. a) Use a dock. b) Check under BIOS menu (if possible) under power, to see whether you have something called 'Power On with AC Attach' feature. If you do enable it, and save then exit. What this do, is that it will power on the laptop when you connect the power plug into the laptop. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/8991415709/c) remove the CMOS battery, and power on the laptop by attaching the power adapter to the laptop.

Is it ok to just look for any RAM modules that are DDR3 SODIMM PC10666 1333Mhz? Will all of them work on the T410? Also, would I have to match certain specs with the RAM currently installed?

Answer:Type of RAM for T410

Most RAM will be compatable however, some are not. There is at the least one discussion within these forums with this matter as it's topic. I have been taken to task for recommending LENOVO supplied RAM due to it's "high cost" and single year warranty, however if it is faulty it's the correct part  and number; return it as faulty. Total aftermarket may be the correct number but be unable to operate. Will the non OEM take it back? I don't know and I don't need the hassle. I would tend to match all specs.  Regards,-30-

Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at the keyboard part numbers for the G560 (see page 79-80 of the HMM) and the G570 (see page 79-83 of the HMM), there are no matching part numbers between the two models, thus, the keyboard may fit but it may not work due to a whitelist of compatible parts or due to a different keyboard ribbon/cable layout.
 
I recommend you stick to the part numbers listed on the HMM (Hardware Maintenance Manual) for best compatibility.

Question: new keyboard, t410

Hi. I had a SMALL coffee spill on the T410 a week ago. Mouse button-behavior has been a litle unpredictable ever since, both on the keyboard itself (all four touchpad buttons are a little off, with the right-click buttons being the most inconsistent). Plugging in a USB mouse is better, but that still is not perfect. Weirdly, clicking on some things (links in Chrome browser, for instance) usually works, while clicking on other things (Chrome browser tabs, for instance) often does not work. Very unpredictable, though.  I'm going to try replacing the keyboard to see if that might fix the problem.  Two questions: (1) Do you think that might fix the problem?  (2) How on earth can I order a new keyboard from Lenovo--all the multiple help/ordering/parts/replacement pages and stuff on the website are oddly unclear on where/who I can simply call to order this replacement part. Any help there would be appreciated.  THANKS

Answer:new keyboard, t410

dutchg,the keyboard and touchpad is separated thus if you were to change, I would advice to check the TouchPad first.You mentioned that the 4 buttons on the touchpad are off? I don't remember having 4 buttons on the touchpad. There are only 3 physical buttons right?If you want to replace the touchpad, contact support and they would advice you on how to do so.

My son has a Dell Inspiron running Windows Vista. His computer was fine and he made no changes to it whatsoever. He came to me very upset claiming that his keyboard was not working properly.
I took a look at it and sure enough, it will not type the following letters:c,h,l,t, ***U,v. Since his password contained the letter "L," once he logged out he was no longer able to log back in.
He asked me to reinstall his operating system. I have done so, except now I'm on the screen where it asks me to type a username and password - and guess what? It still won't type those letters! I even tried the virtual keyboard - it will not type those letters using it either. However, when you press the "U" key (whether on the keyboard or the virutal keyboard) a window pops up titled: Ease of Access, and it gives me the option of hearing text onscreen, making items larger, etc.
I cannot even begin to imagine how to fix this. Please, if any of you know what to do, help me please??
 

Answer:Both laptop keyboard and virtual keyboard will not type certain letters

OMG! I have to add this additional information:
I just accidentally pressed the "shift" key when I tried to type an "L." It typed the "L!!" But it still will not type a lower case "L." When I press the "Caps Lock" key, it has no effect - it still will not type the letter L. This is the case with all of the above noted letters. All of them will type only if I press the "shift" key.

I have the same problems with my (brand new) T410. Try to press a litte (not much!!) at the point right above the fingerprint scanner and it will work again. I will give mine to service tomorrow, we will see what they say.

Hi guys,My first post on the Lenovo Community forum, so I´ll be brief as not to risk doing something wrong .. :-)I have a T410 mainly for work, and It has been solid rock for 3 year.I have spilled a couple of drops of soda at the keyboard (not an specific area... :-)) but no problem at the time. I turned it off instantaneously and tried to dry it off with a air blower.Seemed to do OK for the first day, but now , every day that goes by, it looses a hand full of keys at the keyboard. First day were space, B, N, the arrow keys and the power button. Next day C, D, mic button, control and del... And it goes on.Any advices?Exchange part already?Thanks !!!

Answer:T410 Keyboard dying little by little

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that a few keys in the keypad of your Lenovo ThinkPad T410 is not working properly.
 
Check if the keys are working in different applications. Some keys such as the function keys F1 through F12 will not work with every program. An easy way to test this is to open notepad or other word processing program and trying the key. Try getting into safe mode and see if the keys work. Remove the key from the keyboard and clean it. In some situations dirt, hair, dust, etc. can obstruct keys causing them not to work.
 
Please try to get into BIOS mode and see if the keyboard is working there. Tap F1 key while system shows the Lenovo logo to get into BIOS.
 
1. If you are able to use the keyboard in BIOS, it could be a software issue. I would recommend in that case to do a System Restore which will revert the settings in your system to a previous time.
2. If keyboard doesn?t respond in BIOS as well, I strongly suggest you to contact our technical support for assistance.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Best Regards,
Mithun.

Answer:t410 keyboard fails

Hi jinn,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing the issue with Keyboard on your ThinkPad T410.
 

Please check with uninstalling the keyboard adapter from the device manager and check with restart the system.
Check if the external keyboard works fine.
Check cleaning the keyboard from vacuum cleaner, also check if there is any foreign partial stuck in the keyboard.
If the issue still persists on the system keyboard, then the issue might be with hardware.

Hope this helps!

I followed the illustrated T410 HMM.  It says to remove the one screw that holds the memory cover, then slide the keyboard forward (toward the LCD screen) to free up the latches holding it down.  I did that and managed to get the trailing edge for the keyboard free.  But something is preventing its removal.  What is?  Is the HMM in error?  I am doing this to install the last part of a memory upgrade for a client. This has frustrated me in two different tries, with the same result, a keyboard that will not release.  Thank you to anyone who can explain what has to be done...

When it was repaired do you know if they by chance put any tape over the ribbon of the keyboard. I've seen this problem in half a dozen T410's Lenovo told me the fix was a tape kit to prevent the keyboard ribbon from getting kinked on the internal frame. However that tape kit has been on back order for 6-8 weeks now.

Hi, For your information:for the last 4 month I own a T410. The notebook was delivered with pre-installed win7. Currently it is running additionally Debian Squeeze in dual boot. The problem:In the last days I experierenced strange  behavior of the integrated keyboard. The keys e d and c seem to fire the wrong events. e for example raises the volume, d mutes. First the problem occured sporadic, so I though it is caused by dirt or something similar, but currently it is not possible to work at the laptop without an external keyboad (which works fine). I think a wrong configuration of the keyboard layout can be dropped, because the behavior is on both systems. Maybe some else experienced this behavior and can help me? I need the laptop for my studies - so given it to maintanance is the worst-case solution. With regards from GermanyAkaya

Hello all, I recently purchased a T410 and I am overall very pleased with my purchase. Now excuse me while I go on a short rant. Why are there two buttons, right next to the directional arrows, that cycle forwards and backwards through my browsing history? Alt+right/left arrow performs the exact same function. Not only are these buttons completely redundant, they make posting on a message board very dangerous. I sometimes use the arrow keys to get my cursor to the right place to correct typing errors. If I inadvertantly hit the wrong key, I go back a page and all my work is lost. A more benign issue, I often use the arrow keys when I program to correct similar typing errors, and I am not used to having extra keys in that area. Sometimes I have to take a moment to feel for the correct key (wah wah, I know). Needless to say, I think that this is a very poor design, but I think it could potentially have a simple remedy. Can anyone tell me how to customize these two keys to carry out a different function (in Windows 7)? Any help is appreciated.

Ok so I have a 2011 Lenovo thinkpad T410 and a lot of times on boot it throws fan error so i simply press esc to by pass. Works fine except for fan doesnt run fast enough or not even at all, so it hits 180 degrees. Now a week after starting to get fan error the keyboard is acting all funny like only 1 arrow keys work left right and up don't work nor does caps lock, w, s, x, Ctrl, windows, alt. im starting to feel dejavu from 3 years ago on an HP nw8240 the fan stopped working then a few keys and completely died afterwards. At first it seemed as if it was fan failure and now with the keyboard it seems more serious like the motherboard is going bad. What do you guys think bad mobo or coincidence why both went bad

Answer:T410 fan error + keyboard malfunctions

Hello, It really sounds like you fried your system due to not paying heed to the Fan error message. They do pop up for a very good reason and should never be ignored. It's very hard to say if your machine can be fixed without swapping the motherboard, but regarding the keyboard, I suspect that the controller on the MB is now starting to fail, but your keyboard could be fine. The parts needed to repair it are readily available on the internet, but it will cost you a bit if your motherboard / fan / keyboard all need replacing. Cheers.

Answer:Problem after cleaning keyboard on a T410

I believe the moisture resistant keyboard is designed to seal against the keyboard bezel and palmrest in order to keep a small amount of liquid away from the motherboard by routing the liquid to places that will drain into the frame areas that dump into spill holes.  When I see machines that have had small liquid accidents, usually the motherboard is OK, but the keyboard is usually busted.  If it were mine and I wanted to save it, I would try to bake the keyboard (NOT THE COMPUTER) in an oven just under the boiling point of water - perhaps 95C or 200F.  I cannot guarantee that the rubber cups under the keys wouldn't be damaged, but that is what I would try, although I would expect that it might make it worse.    I tend to use such keyboards as organ donors for keyboards that need keys.

Check removing the battery and connect only the power adapter.
Perform power drain and check it once, to proceed with power drain, remove power adapter and battery hold the power button for 30 seconds and after that connect only power adapter and try switching ON the system.

Make a backup of the registry before you do this, and change only this value- so you can restore if it goes wrong.Other than that, you should be good to go.

Normally 90W Adapter is used when you are using the system with dock as it will consume more power

Dear all, since yesterday I have been experiencing a problem with my T410, which is potentially due toa hardware issue with the keyboard. A few specific keys are not working anymore. These seem to be the Power On key, the Fn key,the Alt Gr key, and the ThinkVantage key. I am assuming it is a keyboard hardware problem, since I cannot use the Power On button tostart the laptop. Fortunately, this is possible using the fingerprint reader start-up. When the laptop is running (using Windows 7) everything is working fine, except the mentionedbuttons. I cannot access any Fn button functions (e.g. the reading lamp) or Alt Gr symbols (e.g.the @ symbol which is on my keyboard on the 2 button) or power down with the Power button. I tried various easy fixes: * Making sure all drivers are up to date* Remove and reattach the keyboard* Static discharge procedure (unplug all power, 10 presses and 30 sec holding of power button)* Checking Bios settings* Replace battery* ... Unfortunately, these did not change the situation. I am wondering if the simultaneous malfunctioning of these specific buttons points to a certainhardware problem. I hope a replacement of the keyboard might solve this, but it could be anissue with the motherboard. Any hints would be welcome. Thank you, MH

Answer:Potential keyboard hardware problem T410

this is hard to say, it could be the motherboard (lower likelihood). But most likely it is the keyboard that is playing up. The keyboard is the cheapest component to test for the specific problems that you mentioned in the T410, so it is the most cost effective test case for the fault.

We have recently completed our image for the T410/T510 platform running Windows XP and have just run into something that I was wondering if anyone else had. During our testing, one of our apps was showing some strange behavior on the new platforms.  We finally figured out that it was a conflict that the application was having with the Lenovo Hotkey software.  Our thinking at that time is that this was a "nice" to have while the application was a "need" to have so we removed the software.  This has been running fine and we have rolled out a few hundred laptops, but now have one issue. When the software is installed, if you press the mute button on the keyboard, windows sees that and turns on the mute.  If you press the volume button on the keyboard, the mute in windows turns off as does the light on the mute button.  Without the software installed, if you have pressed the mute button, the light turns on just like normal.  However, if you press the volume button at that point, then the light on the mute button turns off, but Windows does not turn off the mute.  If you press the mute button on the keyboard, then the light comes back on, but Windows then turns off the mute. Anyone else have this issue? Eric Krueger

Hi, I have recently spilled some fruit juice (sweet and sticky) on my t410's keyboard. Here are the problems caused and the different steps I took to try and solve them : 1. Switched off the laptop, waited a day. Switched it back on. The laptop worked normally except for various keys, mostly in the first row of letters (qwertz...) that didn't work (didn't react when pressed), and others who were sticky and got stuck when pressed. 2. Took out the keyboard and soaked it in alcohol (normal alcohol as I couldn't find isopropil alcohol) to wash out the juice deposits. Wiped with towels, then let it dry half a day. Put it back in. It was worse than before, the power button seemed to be shorted or sth. The laptop could not be tuned on with the power button. It could be turned on using the fingerprint reader though. But then it had a strage behaviour, kept turning on and off on its own. 3. Took out the keybord again, removed all the keys, including the power/mute/volume... Sprayed it repeatedly with contact cleaner (Vistony brand, made in Peru) . Then let it dry.This didn't improve much. 4. Waited over the week end, tried again. Now the power button works. When I turn on the laptop, before it can boot, it beeps repeatedly and shows an error essage : "error 210 stuck key : 10". Using an external USB keyboard, I can press escape, and boot to Windows. But the laptop's keyboard is unreactive and there is a continuous beep (frequency of about 2 beeps per second, c... Read more

Answer:T410 : keyboard problem after juice spill

dondrito, welcome to the forum,
 
I admire your determination to save your keyboard, but honestly feel it's time to part yourself from it and accept it has sadly departed and find a replacement.
 
An option would be to attach the system to a port replicator or mini-dock, which have power on switches, detach the internal keyboard from the mainboard and start the system from the port rep. or mini dock after attaching an external keyboard to either or your notebook. Not a good solution if you need to travel.
 
p.s. a port rep. or mini-dock will cost more than a keyboard.

Hey guys! It all started teh day that some water droped into my thinkpad keyboard and the waterproof! keyboard went down. After lots of tries, it proved to that the keyboard is not usable anymore. So i droped it for another keyboard. But there are two problem that currently exist. Track point is not working and the LEDs behind the keys like power and mute  don't turn on. it's understandable for that there is no power in the keyboard, and probably trackpoint issue is because of that. the keyboard socket on the motherboard is ok and is connected but after all the problem is somewhere there and i cannot recognize it. I'm sorry if my explains were too complicate, but I appreciate if anyone could help me, life without trackpoint is something miserable for me! Thanks!

Dear Lenovo,dear x220-engineers, after three years of staying with a *insert-name-of-a-popular-u.s-it-brand* notebook I have the desperate need to upgrade to a new, ultra portable device. Gladly this coincides perfectly with the release of x220. Besides perfect display, perfect weigth and perfect price there is one thing bugging me... There are numerous reports of the standard-cpus creating lot of heat and thus prompting also fan noise. Personally I would prefer a slightly less powerful CPU like the low voltage i5-2537 over the standard ones. These ones are stated to have half the TPD as standard ones. Therefore I would like to know, can we expect x220 variants with these lv-cpus? Possibly also as university-model? Thanks in advance. 

Answer:When will we see X220 with Low-Voltage CPU, e.g. i5-2537

Heh. I don't think Lenovo Forums censors other brands names. (Apple, Asus, Acer, Dell, Gateway, HP, SONY, Toshiba)The X220 fan issues might be an issue not necessarily related to the heat of a full power CPU. Probably want to stay tuned to the X220 fan thread. Can't remember if anyone reported egregious thermal output on the X220.

         At the end of last year we purchased just over 330 T410 laptops. In 6 months we have had 13 with cracked LCDs. I can say that 2 where caused by the users. Pen left on one units keyboard and there was a dropped unit with scratches on the corner were visible. If this continues we will end up with 26 units per year getting mysterious cracke. We did not experience these problems with the Dell D620/D630 series we had for 4 years prior to the T410.  One of our users claimed that the support tech at IBM told him that the LCDs could not support high temperature variations. No details as to what these variations are. We are nationwide so each area will have a variety of temps.  I remember back about 4 years ago watching live demos by IBM reps that would stand on the laptops and pour water in the keyboard. The units looked tough. Has something changed? The specs looked reallty good when we were comparing manufacturers last year.   Anybody else experiencing a high failure rate of unexplainable cracked LCDs ?Thanks

Hi, Hi have a T410 with a 70++. Since a couples of days it will not charge.I plugged the battery in the T420 I have and the battery charges fine. The Lenovo Power Manager says I'm using anywhere from 135watts to 2 million watts. When I turn off the computer and unplug it, the green plugged in light stays on. I reinstalled the lenovo power manager and power driver also the windows driver, same problem. I have to remove the battery and put it back in again so that it will go off. When the laptop is turned off it does not charge either. I figure it's a motherboard issue. Any ideas? If it's a board issue, does anyone know what type of part needs to be replaced (my uncle can weld anything, but needs to know where the problem is)

You'll need to go to Lenovo's support site to download the drivers.
If you type Start+R then 'devmgr' you'll get Device Manager. Install all the drivers for the yellow banged devices.

The Laptop can run in safe mode with no issues....Tested this last night and this it was still on this morning.

I reloaded windows 7 32 to bit by doing a clean install and have not loaded any other drivers except the ones thats generic by windows7.

Answer:Consistant BSOD Lenovo I5 T410

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Hi. lenovors:I recently purchased a refurbished lenovo T410 from the newegg. Upon receiving it, I have been in love with it. But two weeks ago, I encountered [0xc000000f] error message while I was doing a resetting it to out of the box condition. Since it was around thanksgiving, I decided to upgrade the computer. I bought an 8G memory and 256G ssd. Now I am having the following problems:1. With the original hdd in, windows was fine, I switched out the one original 2g memory to the new 8G memory. After I turned on the computer, it passed on the window log (starting) without moving. Basically, it was stuck after swapping the 2g original memory with a newly bought 8G memory.The original memory is Hynix, HMT325S6BFR8C-H9,SODIMM, 2G, 204 Pin, PC-10600 (Bus Type), 1.5ns (Cycle Time), CL9, 1333Mhz (Data Transfer Rate), 166Mhz (Memory Clock)The new 8g memory is: Team 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 Laptop Memory Model TSD38192M1600C11-EWhen I put the new memory in, got into BIOS, the computer recognized it, it show the total memory as 10G.Please advise me if anything I could do to get this memory work out, otherwise, I have to return the memory back to newegg.2. I swapped out the old hdd to new ssd. It does not have issue with hardware. Since my old hdd has [0xc000000f] error message, I installed my own copy of windows7_pro_with_SP1.

Good Afternoon,Im having a little power problem with my Lenovo T410, after replacing the hard drive. After I replaced the hard drive, I was installing an OS and it powered off because I haven't charged it for about 2 days. When I plugged in my AC charger, it won't turn on.After many trials, it seems that my Lenovo is not able to power on with only the AC power cord. I took out the battery and used only the AC Power cord and it will not turn on.Next, I put back the battery back, along with the AC power cord and it booted, but shuts off right after the "ThinkPad" logo comes on. Now it is charging but the LCD light for the battery is blinking orange.After about 10 mins of charging, I still can not turn on the Lenovo. Is this due to a bad AC adapter? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Lenovo T410 Power Problem

Hi DerivativeX,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I cannot confirm it is a issue with AC adapter, you can also check with performing power drain.
 
To perform power drain you have to remov the AC power adapter & battery after that hold the power button for 30 seconds perform this step for 2 or more times.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

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

I've searched around for answers or solutions to the wireless problem with the Lenovo T410 and so far none of them have worked. I started off by uninstalling Access Connections, but my wireless connections would still randomly disconnect.After that, I reinstalled Access Connections and uninstall Intel PROset/Wireless tools. That completely killed my wireless and I couldn't connect to my home's network at all.  I tried unticking the box that allows the wireless to shut off for power saving and that didn't do anything at all. (I did learn that changing the roaming aggressiveness of your wireless card turns it on again if it does disconnect though). I've also recently found out that my wireless consistently turns off when I try and download/install iPhone OS4 through iTunes. The wireless turns off about 20 seconds into the download every single time. \ My wireless card is a Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN. If someone can explain how they can uninstall the PROset/Wireless Tools without completely bombing their wireless please do. Looking for any other options or solutions
