Thinkpad X230 'The battery installed is not supported and will not charge' problem

Question: Thinkpad X230 'The battery installed is not supported and will not charge' problem

Hi,

I bought a genuine x220/x230 battery. After I power on the laptop, I got a message: the laptop doesn't support this battery. I tried to update the bios but nothing happend. The power manager said the battery voltage, performance, cycles, LGC battery. If I unplugged the laptop, it is works so the laptop can use the battery just not charge. If it was not a genuine battery I can't see these description or I should also?

Maybe this is not compatible with my x230 because it compatible just x220 and the seller didn't know it?

I attached some photo about the problem. If anyone know anything about it please help me. Thanks.

Answer: Thinkpad X230 'The battery installed is not supported and will not charge' problem

Good day and welcome to the community.

The X230 requires the 44-series batteries, which incorporated some new circuitry with which the x230 interacts. As you've found, the X230 will run from a charged 29-series battery, but will not recharge it. The X220 originally came with series 29-series batteries, but also works with the newer 44-series.

Regards.

After a long journey, both batteries in my T450s were flat, and this morning when I plugged in and booted up I got the message that "The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge".  True to its word, one of the batteries does not seem to be charging.  These are the original batteries which came with the laptop when bought new from Lenovo.  They have performed well since I received it, no problems to date, and no obvious reduction in performance.  How can I get the battery charging again? Thanks for your help.

Answer:lenovo e430 The battery installed is not supported and will not charge , problem

Hi there, Legna           -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
1)  Shut down the computer.
2)  With the battery in (but AC adapter removed), attempt to turn on the computer by holding down the power button for 30 sec. This should not turn on the computer.
3)  Remove the battery.
4)  Again, attempt to turn on the computer (AC adapter not plugged in) by holding down the power button for 30 sec.  This should not turn on the computer either.
5)  Replace battery, plug in the AC adapter, and turn on the computer.  The battery should begin charging.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi all!So I bought a new battery for my T430 laptop in August and it was working great.  Then suddenly tonight it started giving me the error above:  '' The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge. Please replace the battery with the correct lenovo battery for this system,''I tried troubleshooting my uninstalling and reinstalling the Lenovo Power Manager.  I also updated the BIOS.  Neither of those gave me any luck.  I tried getting rid of the microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery, but that keeps coming back.  Any help out there?  Thanks!Aaron

Answer:T430 Battery issue '' The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge."

I can think of two choices for your situation. Buy the Lenovo sourced battery or uninstall power manager and work only with the Windows ACPI power interface. I had similar issue with a much older laptop and uninstalling power manager allowed me to use the aftermarket battery with out the nag screens.

Answer:The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge. THINK PAD T 430

The batteries with p/ns you have been provided are not compatible with t430. Because of t430 needs new design batteries with special chip for authentication.
 
Lenovo PSREF (regarding t430):
"Battery type: Lithium Ion 6-cell or 9-cell, supports optional Slice battery as 2nd battery, HW Authentication"
 
Those batteries you have are for the t420/t520/w520.

Hello, today I received my brand-new E540 from Amazon. Upon inserting the battery and starting the laptop for the very first time, I was greeted by the following error message: The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge.Please replace the battery with the correct Lenovo battery for this system.Press the ESC key to continue.  The message has only appeared once and hasn't been shown on subsequent reboots. I proceeded to install Windows 7 which worked fine. Under Windows the battery symbol in the taskbar would say "66%. Plugged in. Not charging". I then shutdown the system and re-inserted the battery. Since then the battery appears to be charging normally and when I inspect the battery symbol in Windows it says something like "89% charged. Plugged in. Charging." Seeing how this is a brand-new laptop, do you think the battery is broken and I should return the laptop, or should I keep it since it seems to be working normally now.

Answer:E540: The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge.

OK well to answer my own question. After installing all the official drivers and setting up Windows I noticed that the Wifi connection was really shaky. 4 out of 5 tries to ping the router would timeout. After restarting the router several times and checking with my other notebooks and smartphones (all of which had no problem with the wifi whatsoever) I figured it had to be a problem with the ThinkPad. I was really starting to get annoyed with this thing, when all of a sudden a blue screen popped up. On a clean version of Windows 7 with no 3rd party software installed but the official E540 drivers from the lenovo website. At that point I shut the computer down and decided I've had enough. This thing is going right back to Amazon and I will rather spend the money on repairing my MacBook Pro.

Hi All, I bought a re-furbished Lenovo X220i and decided to buy an extra genuine Lenovo battery which is brand new (New Old Stock maybe?) from a dealer. Battery Details: P/N OA36283 on the Box. P/N 42T4861 on the battery. According to the Lenovo documentation, this battery part number should be compatible to Lenovo X220i. However, when I insert the battery in, it comes up with a message that the battery is not supported by the system and will not charge. The battery comes up with zero (0%) charge.  I installed the latest driver I can find and still comes up the same. Can anybody shed some light on this please? Thanks.

Answer:The battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge. Lenovo X220i.

Hican you provide the photo of the labels on the battery surface (with quality the symbols legible)? Also, if OS is win7 and Lenovo Power Manager application is installed, it's very helpful to add information PM in the Advinced mode from the Battery tab. There is a big chance the battery is faked.

There is no option.  The batteries on 3rd gen core processor-based machines (like yours) are different from the older ones.  The older ones are the same shape, but they don't work.

The internal battery won't charge beyond 80% and the removable battery won't charge at all.  I've read other threads here and have tried uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery using device manager but this has not fixed the issue. Any other ideas?

Answer:Thinkpad T440s internal battery won't charge beyond 80% and external battery won't charge at all

Hi Nicktr,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I think the problem you are running into is Power Manager conflicting with the 80% BIOS threshold. So to avoid this, either keeps the Power Manager threshold for both batteries below 80%, or else both batteries above 80%.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

sounds like somethings wrong, since my x1 carbon is charing up to 80% in less than 1 hour so no it isnt false advertising. Also it says it charges 80% in less than 1 hour so idk where you read it said 30 mins or less, since it never said such thing it allways said 1 hour or less.

I contacted Lenovol support and they send me a replacement unit. The the replacement unit has the same problem. Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 docking station does not charge Thinkpad P51 battery.  I need to plug in the power adapter for both docking station and notebook.  Does anybody have similiar problem? 

Answer:Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 docking station does not charge Thinkpad P51 battery.

Everbody's p51 would be the same.  The thunderbolt port won't work as a charging port.  The thunderbolt specs specify 100w max.  That's not enough.  Your thunderbolt port is not for charging.  To charge via the dock, you need a workstation dock, not a thunderbolt dock.  A thinderbolt dock can charge things like an x1 carbon (5th gen) or x1 yoga (2nd gen)

Hello guys I am ready to order ThinkPad x230 from Lenovo.de but the only option for the battery is 29, 29+ and 29++. Will there be a problem or can I continue with the order?

Answer:Thinkpad X230 and 29++ battery

The ThinkPad X230 uses 44, 44+ or 44++ batteries. The 29 series batteries are only made for ThinkPad X220. The 29 batteries in the X230 will not charge, as it will be seen as NON-authentic battery. http://www.thinkscopes.com/29-29-or-29-batteries-in-the-thinkpad-x230/

I have got it to do this twice so far, so looks like a problem.  My wife always puts her X220 to sleep versus shutdown.  Sleep still uses some power apparently which is fine.  It looks like it is draining only the primary battery even though the slice battery is connected. The issue is that with the primary battery drained and the slice battery connected, the TP will not power up.  Plug the power adapter into the slice battery and still no power up.  The slice battery charged to 100% with it pluged in, but the primary battery would not charge.  Plug the power adapter into the X220 directly and let it charge for a moment, then everything works as it should even if you then move the power adapter back to the slice battery. So if the primary battery is dead, the slice battery and charging the primary battery through it seems to stop working under this scenario. Obviously not a huge deal since we now know what causes this, but maybe someone wants to fix some day. I am using BIOS 1.16 and have been for a while.

Answer:X220 Will Not Charge When Primary Battery is Dead with Slice Battery Installed

hey DevItHere,have you tried updating your bios and at the same time uninstalling the power manager for your X220 and reinstalling it ?if not, please do so

Do i need to charge the batteries separately or they all get charged simultaneously while i plug a charger in the laptop?3.

It's been about 5 months since I started to use my Thinkpad  X230.  Only three days ago it could work for 5-6 hours without charging.  I could charge it at home, bring it to school and use it without charging.  But suddenly the battery started to die in a short amount of time.  Then I explored the battery settings a little bit.  I found out it says "Battery Condition: poor" and "Your battery can 47% of its original full charge capacity."   It has warranty until 2015. So can Lenovo send me a new battery if I want so? Or is it a problem that warranty doesn't cover? Please help!!

Answer:Thinkpad X230 Battery issues

Well, a few things. 1.  The warranty you mention sounds like it is for the system.  The system and battery typically have different warranty terms.  Unless of course you did order an additional battery warranty. 2.  However, the base battery warranty is one year, so if you contact them they should get you a replacement since you are only a few months into ownership. Good luck!

Hallo, I have a problem with my 3 yo X230 where the battery is fast empty, only 20 minutes from full charging although I only open 1 program (Excel/word/etc.). Should I change the battery ?

Hi All, I have a Thinkpad T520. It won't charge the battery (% charged stays at the same level) and it won't run from the battery only. If I turn off/remove AC power the computer dies immediately and it won't start up without the AC power plugged in. The battery is definitely good, it works in another computer. Is this a problem which I can fix myself? Can it be repaired? Will it be expensive? Will it require a new motherboard? It is not under warranty. Thanks, so much SV P.S. Any suggestions will need to be written in fairly simple terms, I'm no expert

Answer:Thinkpad T520 won't charge battery or run from battery power.

The problem is the charging circuit on the motherboard. It might be a fuse, but that is soldered to the motherboard, so unless you have a well-equipped repair place with a rework station (not a dealer) they cannot replace the fuse. If it isn't a fuse, it is probably a power transistor, and you are not likely to find someone to fix it. Probably, you will need a motherboard

I have a Lenovo X230, running Kubuntu 14.04. When I disconnect the slice battery at the bottom the system resets, it's very annoying. What's worse is that it seems like jostling the system, also can cause it to power cycle. I don't really have a need to remove the slice battery very often, but essentially if I put the laptop into standby, and put it in by laptop knapsack, the system is off after I get where I'm going. Thoughts? I saw somewhere that allegedly, when you unlock the battery, some thinkpad utility gets notified to switch the power, I wonder if the hotplug is a software only solution, and not doable in standby. Steve Ramage

Answer:Why thinkpad x230 tablet without windows 8 installed from the factory? What is the real reason?

To be a windows 8 certified device with touch screen feature, it has to have at least 5 points touch. The X220t and X230t uses a 2 point touch screen, so they do not meet the minimum requirement for Windows 8.

I've had my Thinkpad X230 for about a year and was able to get around 7-8 hrs of battery life. A month ago I had to do a clean install of the OS after talking to Lenovo Support over what seemed to have been a corruption in the file system. As soon as I did the clean install, the battery life dropped to about 3 hrs.  I believe I have all the latest updates and drivers (did updates both through Windows Update and Updates and Drivers in Lenovo's ThinkVantage Tools). I played around with the Power Manager settings but can't reproduce anything close to 7-8hrs of battery life. What am I doing wrong?

Answer:Thinkpad X230 - Lower battery life after clean install

wee bit hard to tell with the information i have.can you confirm that all devices are operational as per device manager?for my case, my 7200 rpm hdd eats up battery like a monster. having turbo memory serving as a "cache" of sorts was able to increase the battery life to over 50 percent. nowhere near as amazing as your 8 hours, mind, but 4hrs to 6hrs is pretty dang good.your x230, you may have a msata ssd serving as a cache instead. do check whether the thinkvantage system update installed intel rapid storage technology for you or not.

I bought a Thinlpad R51 - 1836 BBU used and with no battery. I bought a new battery, installed it and the battery drained completely. I sent it back and got a new one and also bought a new power chord. The battery and new power chord worked fine for two months. Last week the battery drained completely again (while plugged into AC chord).

Again I bought a new battery (extended life this time) and bought a docking station. I am now faced with the new battery drains everytime I use it. The power chord does not charge it. The docking station does not charge it either. I would like some questons answered:

Is it normal for the pc to have to be ON for the battery to be charged?

Does anyone know if there is any indication that the power chord is plugged in while the battery is installed? When on AC only, it shows plug - When battery installed (on battery only or with AC chord) computer shows on battery power.

Do the external battery charger units really work? this may be my only way of recharging my battery if not through the pc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi gary

the PSU that plugs into the laptop, is it an original and does it supply the correct voltage and ampage, use the manufacturers website to determine this, i have seen many cheap PSU's cause battery problems on laptops.

the light configuration is different for makes of laptop having not had a thinkpad i cant answer that question, although im sure someone on here has.

Hi,I have a Lenovo Edge 15 which I bought in January.  Although experienced in computers I had trouble using the Windows 8 and not enough time to learn it so I did not use it for 6 months.  I have just started it up again this week.   I have found that it has a lot of problems.  malware, viruses and lots of window errors.  I have put nothing onto the computer...no documents, nothing.  I have been advised by Windows 8 forum to restore it to factory condition.  Do you agree and how would I do that?  Would that remove the viruses?  MANY THANKS!!!  Barbjs

Solved!

Answer:Thinkpad x1 2gen i7 - battery charge 90w

you can as long as it is from another ThinkPad with a similar plug type (i.e. first generation Thinkpad X1 Carbon), you can also use 135 watts power adapter from the T540p to charge it too. The power adapter will supply only the power needed by the laptop. 90 watts is the maximum power it can supply, but it isn't always supplying that much.

Hey guys. I need a hand on this really strange problem. I own a new T400 thinkpad, provided by my new job. But the laptop is having a REAL weird problem while it charges. Here's the deal: Everytime I start charging it from a lower gauge, let's say, 30%, it all goes good. The percentage goes up in a normal speed and the time to fully charge that it shows when I pass the mouse over the green bar is completely logic. The problem starts to happen when the battery reaches, let's say, 55%. Since then, the percentage starts going up slower than usual, and the time to fully charge starts to increase (!!) when it should be decreasing! For example, at 55% it says 2:20hs (don't know exactly) to fully charge, but when it reaches 60%, it starts to say 3:15hs to fully charge! And while the percentage increases even more and more slowly, the time that shows to fully charge keeps incrementing. When it reaches 70% it shows like 10hs to fully charge! The thing is, after like 10hs of charging, it finally reaches 79%, showing 48hs to fully charge and there it stays. It won't pass that mark. I already tried a new battery and it keeps doing the same thing! I've updated to the latest BIOS, the latest power manager and the latest power management driver and it keeps going the same way. I can turn off the laptop, keep the cable plugged in for many many hours, and the battery indicator keeps lighting, so I definitely think its a hardware problem. Its really really we... Read more

I bought an E540 Edge two and a half months ago, and have had batter charge issues continually. The battery starts out fine/operating normally. Then, when the charge gets fairly low (around 20%) the low battery alert goes off, I plug it in, and all of a suddent it's at 6% charged. Over time, the threshold for the sudden drop in charge creeps upward. Now, when it goes below 50%, it drops down to the 6%. I contacted Lenovo about this last month, and they sent me a new battery, which was great, except the same exact negative progression creeped in and escalated again over these past few weeks. Any thoughts/help from Lenovo or others would be extremely appreciated. Is this machine systematically destroying batteries? Or is it simply a problem with the battery gauge? Or something else entirely? It's a great machine otherwise, but this one issue is incredibly burdensome.

Answer:E540 ThinkPad Battery Loses Charge

Hi Johnmharding,

I have recently purchased an S1, which is now having an issue that I can't seem to resolve on my own. The laptop works (almost) perfectly on A/C, but doesn't charge the battery. I noticed yesterday the battery was low (which was surprising, because I had only recently unplugged it) - so I plugged it in to charge.At which point, the battery icon in the system tray stated "8% (plugged in, not charging).I've tried the following to fix this: 1) Leaving it plugged in overnight completely off. 2) Running the battery calibration (fails w/ unexpected error). 3) Tried turning off battery optimization (Option is removed in newer version of drivers, so NA to my issue). 4) Tried reinstalling the power management drivers anyway (even though I already had the newer version). 5) Holding down the power button for 30 seconds, both plugged in and not plugged in (suggestion from forum). 6) Holding down the reset button (pin reset on the mobo) for 30 seconds, both plugged in and not plugged in. 7) Charging from BIOS. 8) Letting the battery run down to 0% in BIOS, then rebooting on A/C (another forum suggestion).  Now I'm just at 0% plugged in and not charging. Previously I said the computer almost worked perfectly, the almost is that the CPU is stuck at ~800mhz, even with all power management turned off (including Speedstep in BIOS) and the power profile set to high performance. Can anyone think of anything else I can try before I give up an...

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga S1 Runs off AC but won't charge the battery

CPU getting stuck at 800MHz is a shared symptom with not having the battery attached on AC.Might be the relevant circuitry on the motherboard/battery. Could try either testing the battery in a different machine or a different battery in the same machine.

I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad W510 (4318-CTO) in August of 2010, and about a year and a month later (a month out of warrantee), it decides to go all shades of crazy on me. I first noticed a strange hot-plasticky smell; maybe slightly metallic like something had shorted out. Upon further investigation, I noticed the charger cord, close to the male part that's plugged into the back of the laptop, had frayed and was showing wire (due to being bent in travel, I suppose?! No idea). I assume it sparked, surged, or something awful to that extent, so I unplugged everything until my new charger arrived. Upon plugging in the new charger, I noticed the battery wouldn't accept a charge. I purchased a new battery ($150+ invested into it now), and it still won't charge. I had the charger tested by a local electrician and it was pushing the required amount of power for the unit. Now I'm stuck, I don't know where to go from here. Is there something internal that can be replaced to facilitate it receiving power again? I paid far too much for this laptop for it to be dead only a year in.

I recently bought a Lenovo ThinkPad T430s 2356-LRG and was wondering how the charge technology worked. I have searched around and looked in the manual but I couldn't find a good answer.My questions is that I use the notebook alot on AC power. And often for extended periods of mid to heavy load. I run Linux and have setup ChargeThreshold. It stops charge at 95% and begins again at 45%.But when I keep the AC power on, and if the battery has 80% it does not move up or down as expected. Because it must drop lower than 45%.Will the power then go straight to the machine and bypass the battery? Because the Battery-LED on the back is turned off. Or will it go via the battery and produce charge cycles on the battery?So let's say the battery is bypassed will it then be fine to keep it on AC and active for a period of many days with heavy load but monitor the temp of the battery. I know heat kills it.I could also buy an 95W power adapter and remove the battery completely from the machine when I have it at my desk for an extended period of time.

Answer:How does battery charge work ThinkPad T430s

Hey there MikalD and welcome to the forums!
 
What you are experiencing is as per normal. These charge thresholds are determined in your power manager, there is a nifty Knowledgebase Article about this.
 
First, open up the ThinkVantage Power Manager. Click on the battery tab, and then Battery Maintenance. This will open a window where you will be able to change and set your charging thresholds to your desired preferences.
 
Additionally, here are links that can give some insight and advice of how to increase the longevity of battery life. How Can I Increase Battery Life?

I've got a Thinkpad 600E running WindowsXP, which has performed pretty well, although the original battery (understandably) just refuses to hold a charge very long any more - although it will reliably recharge when the laptop is running on A/C.

I decided to invest in a new (genuine) IBM replacement laptop battery, which upon receipt, just wouldn't seem to go into the recharge cycle. The recharge light (lower left screen hinge) only blinks orange. Assuming "defective battery", I requested and received a return merchandise authorization, and returned the battery and requested a replacement. The replacement arrived, and the same problem.

Although not outside the realm of reasonableness, it seems improbably that two consecutive replacement laptop batteries would be defective. Under power options, the replacement battery appears to be being recognized - although just not charging (graphic shows a "circle and bar" running through the battery image).

So, clearly (at least to me),

There's nothing wrong with my A/C adapter
There's nothing wrong with my existing (old) battery
There's nothing wrong with the battery charging circuitry

Again, this is a genuine IBM laptop battery, with the exact same model as the old one and it seems to defy reason that this battery also has some sort of defect. Any suggestions on a way to "kick-start" the new battery into recharging?
 

Answer:New Thinkpad Battery Won't Charge - Old One Charges Fine

Hello all, Please forgive if this has been posted. I couldn't find an answer: I purchased a replacement for my battery, but on installation it wouldn't charge. I tried disabling AC and battery in device manager. I tried complete shut down and reboot. Couldn't get the new battery to be recognized. The old battery still works a bit, so I'm not in serious trouble. but with the battery going on a few years old, I wanted to replace before it left me stranded. Is there something that must be done to tell the system (Win 8.1 x 64 pro) to recognize that the battery is new, and to reflash the battery firmware and reset the driver? Simply replacing the battery didn't quite get the job done. Thank you for any response.

Hello,

Thanks for visiting this thread and any advice you have.

The Laptop this is in regards to is a TOSHIBA A205-S7468 (not the C855 of my specs).

I'm finishing a few upgrades on this older, backup of mine (replaced screen, RAM upgrade, clean up) and the battery was in need of replacement. So, I purchased a new replacement on Ebay (I know, right) and it is working ok, but there has been a few red flags.

There was a brief episode with battery level and charge status, but I seemed to correct it by following some instructions on other threads here. It's now stable and 100%, HOWEVER, it reports it has 25% wear level and will only charge to 100% using 75% of it's capacity.

I've uninstalled (and then scanned for hardware changes) the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery Driver (this seemed to straighten out battery level/charge status flags). Checked and made small recommended changes to power saving option (critical level, etc...). Drained it completely and recharged fully (per instructions).

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or advice as to why a new battery would be limited to 75% capacity (and be 100% fully charged)??

Here are screenshots:

They replaced the battery but said that it has problem with charging controller on motherboard and Lenovo doesn't send such motherboard to Russia. Now I can start my laptop without battery(after pressing power button 20 secs) and it able to charge the battery only when it is totally empty (if I unplug the power adapter and plug it again the charging is not going to continue). Lenovo representative in Russia said that they can do nothing. Y410P has international warranty. What should I do? Thanks in advance!

Hi. I just upgraded my notebook (ThinkPad Edge 14", E40) from Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to Windows 8 Pro 64-bit few days ago. After the upgrade, the touchpad gesture worked (e.g. swipe from right edge shows the charm bar) but the battery didn't charge. I thought it was the problem of battery, so I sent it to service center to check it. (But from the Power Manager program, the charge cycle was less than 50 and very unlikely that the problem was caused by the battery.) Few days later, I got my notebook back (yesterday). Service center said that they can charge the computer with Windows 7 (using their hard disk with Windows 7 on it), so they suggested me to reinstall my system. I then refresh the system using Windows 8 built-in function (which could be found in PC settings/ General/ Refresh computer).

Hello all, I'm desperate here. I purchased my Twist from eBay and from that time I've had a battery issue. I was only getting approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes off a full charge before it died. I mostly just tolerated it and had to keep close to an outlet as I assumed the battery was just bad. In the last week I decided to do someting about it and bought a replacement battery, opened up my laptop, and replaced the old battery with the new one. Hopeful that my problem had now been remedied, you can imagine my disappointment when the issue was even slightly worse. Now I get an estimated 1:06 on a full charge. I installed BatteryBar and it tells me "Capacity: 13,870 mWh of 14,060 mWh" and "Battery Wear: 66.9% of 42,480 mHw". I'm running Windows 8.1. I've replaced the original hard drive with an SSD. I've installed the "Lenovo Settings Dependency Program" and "Lenovo Power Management Driver". I've tried changing power settings. Nothing works. A one hour battery life is just miserable. Can anyone provide some insight as to what may be done? I'd appreciate it.

Answer:thinkpad x230 problem

If you mean that screen comes back after you press enter on your hard disk? If so it could be. Your hard disk no longer bootable due to Windows is damaged or something else caused the drive to lose its boot so then you would need a reinstall but it could be another issue causing it so I will let some one else give you more ways to fix this.

Hi all, the Down and the Right arrows keys are stopped working appropriately. When I press the Down arrow key quickly 5 times, it not only jumps 5 lines, but jumps as if I pressed the Page Down button. The problem is similar in the case of the Right arrow: if I press it quickly 3-5 times, the cursor jumps to the end of the line, as if I pressed the End button. The space key has also a problem. If the cursor is inside a word, and I press the space quickly, it starts to separate the word. Example: ab[cursor]cdefghijkl => ab    cde f  ghijk l. I've tested different programs: Notepad++, MS Word, Android Studio, (even booted to Safe Mode) but the problem is the same in all programs. If I press the keys slowly, the problems described above do not appear. The OS is the latest Win10, latest drivers. The problem appeared cca. 2 weeks before, I don't think that I had changed any of the system settings. The other arrow keys are working properly.Model: Thinkpad x230, 2325-Y12. Thank you!Alex

Welcome to the forum!
 
Have you tried to boot a Linux Distro out of a USB-drive? Just to rule out any software/drivers problem.
 
If you still face the same issue in Linux you most probably have a keyboard or another hardware problem. Swapping a keyboard is quite easy for a X230 and replacement parts not expensive.
 
What happens if you attach an external usb keyboard?

Hi,I've bought a used Lenovo X230 & it came without the hard drive for security reasons.I've then bought a new corsair force GT 90gb SSD & hooked up an external dvd/cd rom & inserted the Windows 7 Ultimate x64 disc & started to install the Windows.I then after around 5 minutes get a message that Windows can't be installed :-/Now when I turn on the Thinkpad I keep getting the "BOOTMGR is missing Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" If I press ENTER I can get in to BIOS,but it never gives me the option to boot from my Toshiba external drive even with it showing in BIOS.How can I get the Thinkpad to boot from the disc again ?I have the Toshiba drive as 1st boot option,but it does not give me a message like "Press any key to boot from dvd" like I would on my PC etc..................... Any help more than welcome.

Answer:ThinkPad E430 "Battery Not Installed"

Hi, syl4s
 
I did some research and found this thread that might be helpful. Another user had a similar issue, albeit with a different system. The solution that worked for this user was a power driver that needed updating. This links directly to the solution, though the entire thread has some good information. Updating the driver should work for you, but let me know just in case it doesn't.
 
Best, 
Adam

Answer:Problem with fingerprint reader on thinkpad x230

Hi, ajbrewer93
 
Are you using the Lenvovo software when you are getting this error? If so, this error normally appears when the finger is swiped across the reader and the duration was not long enough. Also, I would make sure the drivers for the reader are up to date (which can be found here), and also that the software is up to date (which can be found here.) When searching for the driver, you can use the dropdown menus to filter by operating system and device (i.e., Fingerprint Reader) to make searching faster.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

If it is under warranty, call for service, rather than dealing with it. The first step is to unplug it and remove the battery. Press the power button 5 times, holding it for 10 seconds on the last push. Put it back together; plug it in, and try again.

I've bought the Lenovo X230 with the broken battery (the PM showes 68% charging and no more, asks for the battery replacement). I've tried 3 different good-working batteries from X220 which were supposed to work on X230, but they don't. When starting the laptop with that battery, it stops with the information:" The battery installesd is not supported by this system and will not charge. Please replace the battery with the correct Lenovo battery for this system. Press the ESC to continue".  And after pressing the ESC key, it starts to work, but the PM still writes that the battery is not correct and it doesn't charge. What could it be?

Answer:Lenovo x230 battery problem

Hi,x230 doesn't support the batteries of old 29 series (x220 did). Only hw protected batteries 44 series are being supported by x230 (and 19+ series, external).Batteries of 29 series can only be discharged in x230.Try to perform the original (x230's) battery reset using Lenovo power manager feature.

Hi there,
 
I have got a lovely X230, and I am trying to get the mobile broadband working, but so far without any luck.
 
I have no idea of which card-driver should be installed, since I dont know the specific type of part in the computer. Therefore I've tried with all the drivers (Ericsson, Qualcomm and Sierra). 
 
None of the drivers seems to do any difference. When I try to install the "Lenovo Mobile Broadband Activation", I get the error message: "There is no supported wireless WAN card installed in this computer. This setup cannot continue".
 
I assume it is caused by, that the WAN/Driver hasnt been installed correctly, which is odd since I've tried with them all.
 
But to start in a place: How do I find out exactly which driver is needed for my laptop? The precicely model is: "X230 TYPE 2324-5F3 S/N xxxxxxx 13/05". I have not succeeded in finding the specific part from these numbers. I've tried to search for the specific model, but your search engine come with no result.
 
With the right driver in hand, I might do some progress in order to get my mobile broadband working :-)
 
Best regards
Jacob Mortensen

Hello. I have a Thinkpad X230. I'm trying to drive video to a Samsung LCD TV via the mini displayport,with a mini displayport  --> hdmi adaptor (i've tried two adaptors now). The X230 detects the the Samsung TV when connected, both in the Sound and in the Graphics Properties. You can hear the connect / see the PC screen flash when the cable is plugged in. Unfortunately I can't get any sound or video on the TV. (I just tried connecting to a Dell Monitor and was able to get it to work.) The TV takes HDMI from my Dell laptop just fine on the same cable/input to the TV.The other problem is that in trying to adjust settings, now when I plug in the HDMI cable via the adaptor, the PC screen goes blank, it seems to be trying to make the TV primary, and the TV is getting the signal, so I have to pull the cable out to get the PC display back. Any ideas on setting / adjustments? ThanksAlan

I installed a "spare" battery that I picked up at local computer show. Initially it had a 2% charge. After I plugged in the power supply, it steadily built up [things went from orange to green].

However, when it reached 74% it stopped charging !! I pulled the plug and ran the battery down to 50%. But when it reached 74% it stopped again.

The little green battery symbol [on the hinge] has stopped "blinking" ??

How can I get a 100% charge into the battery ??

NOTE: I posted this on Thinkpad forum and got "zero response".
 

Answer:T21 Thinkpad - "Partial" Battery Charge

Chances are it is suffereing from the "memory effect" as they do after a while. Batteries do not have an infinite life and this is one of the first indications that it is getting tired. You should discharge it down to nearly zero and recharge it a few times to see if it recovers (unlikely)

Thank you for any help.

Answer:Battery charge problem

Hi ROADMAP,
Are you using the original Dell adapter for this system model? Is the adapter frayed? Does the adapter stay in firm when plugged in or does it fall off easily?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter connected. Also, wiggle the adapter jack at the end and check if the adapter status changes at any point.
Test with another power adapter if possible.
If the port is loose, then the DC port needs to be replaced otherwise, the adapter needs to be replaced.
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

Apologies if this is reprising and earlier question on this topic. I have recently acquired an old-ish second-hand ThinkPad X230 [2325SWK build with a G2ET91WW (2.51) BIOS], accompanied by a ThinkPad UltraBase Series 3 docking station [P/N 0B67692] which has an empty 2" bay.I need advice on the following issues:1    The X230 currently has an SSD installed [Samsung 128GB MZ7TD128HAFV-000L1] which will not be large enough for the programs and program data that I have planned to install.  I would like to upgrade to a 1 1TB SSD, and I propose to clone the contents of the existing 128 GB drive to a 1 TB Samsung 850 Evo [MZ-75E1T0B].  Are there any SATA or other firmware issues that I should be aware of before acquiring the 1 TB drive, arranging for its cloning and for the replacement of the current 128 GB drive?2    I would like to populate the empty 2" bay on the UltraBase Series 3 docking station with an HDD, and the model I have in mind is a 2 TB Seagate BarraCuda Hard Drive [ST2000LM015].  Again, I'd like to know if there are any hardware, firmware or other issues before acquisition and installation.I'd be grateful for any help on either of these two issues in an Australian context.

I see a few threads here, but I'm not sure my problem is exactly the same. Laptop is less than 2 months old. Ran it on battery for a few hours yesterday, got down to 8% and plugged it in. Never gets above 8%. As far as I know this is similar to others, what I haven't noticed in the discussion boards is... When I first plug it into the charger the battery in the icon tray shows a charging cycle... going from an empty battery icon to filling up to full to empty to filling, etc... It does this for about a minute then stops. SHOULD THIS ANIMATED ICON BEHAVIOR CONTINUE UNTIL CHARGED? When I mouse over the battery icon it says 8% and charging, but it's not. I'm running Windows 7 (I swapped out the original hard drive with a new one and installed Win7 on that new drive). Any help? Thanks! Mike

Answer:yet another y510p battery charge problem

Not sure what you've tried so far, but it couldn't hurt to go the road already travelled:  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-and-U-series-Laptops/Y510P-Battery-stuck-on-charging-at-a-cer... Worst case scenario, you're out maybe an hour's worth of work. Best case it might fix everything. In either case, there's nothing in those instructions that should harm your PC, so you've got nothing to lose but a little time. And like the article says, if in doubt you can always grab support. It could be a bad connection somewhere around the battery and the motherboard, a bad battery, or just the way everything seats. Every PC does get a power on test before its shipped, but nothing can really prepare a PC for protracted use other than... well, protracted use.  Hope that helps!

Hi,I bought my x120e about a month ago, and it's been great since, but recently I've had issues with the battery. When I charge the battery to 100% and then disconnect the AC adapter, the battery is fine for one or two hours, and the charge will decrease at a normal, steady rate (indicated by the percentage). However, when the battery gets to 75-80%, it then suddenly jumps down to 10%, and I get a message that I have to charge the laptop or turn it off. When I plug it in and start charging again, the battery charges at a normal rate from 10 to around 40%, but then the same thing happens and it jumps up to 100%, telling me it's fully charged. Generally, I would be happy with such a quick charge, but in this case the battery isn't really fully charged because it soon suddenly dies after I disconnect it from the adapter. Even if I leave it to continue charging at 100%, the same thing happens.So, I was wondering if I could do something to fix this on my own, or if I should just send it back on the one-year warranty. Please tell me if I was unclear in describing the problem, and thanks for any help/suggestions!
