x250 Trackpoint Question

Question: x250 Trackpoint Question

I had an X201 and last year upgraded to the x240. Along with the loss of the physical trackpoint buttons, lenovo also drastically changed the trackpoint hardware. The trackpoint height was shortened, the overall sensitivity/acceleration was drastically reduced, and the "press-to-select" functionality was removed. Does anyone know if those issues have also been addressed in the new x250? That is, is this basically the old (better) trackpoint that was used in prevoius models (e.g., the x201), or is it the same (**bleep**ty) trackpoint as in the x240, just with physical buttons. Thanks,Chris

Preferred Solution: x250 Trackpoint Question

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.)

Answer: x250 Trackpoint Question

Also, I tried to ask this question in a sales chat, and got the response "the trackpad functionality has been designed to reproduce that of older models." I said I wasn't interested in the trackpad, just the trackpoint, and asked explicitly whether I could register a mouse click by pressing the trackpoint. That caused the rep (or bot) to disconnect... after two full minutes of waiting I was requed for a new rep. Thanks Lenovo for that great customer service experience.

When scrolling with the trackpoint, I find that the pages don't roll as smooth as the older Thinkpads did. My T410 scrolls much more smoothly than my X250, and I'm thinking that it is a driver issue. I have the latest Synaptics driver, which would be 18.1.27.14. I've tried rolling back the drivers, and it still doesn't improve the scrolling issue. Did anyone else experience this problem? Has anyone fixed it? Also, as an aside, I've found that I could not play FPS games with trackpoint. The left and right buttons don't click immediately after typing. I always get killed right after sprinting because I'm standing there, unable to shoot. Other than that, the trackpoint is suprisingly easy to use for games.

Answer:Spotty scrolling with trackpoint? (X250)

I've noticed something similar running the same 18.1.27.14 driver on my W520.Does trying to two-finger scroll on the touchpad temporarily make the TrackPoint scroll better?Are you on Windows 7 or 8.x?I played a good few months of BF3 on TrackPoint only when my proper mouse died, and it works very well for following a moving target.

I know the Trackpoint on this generation has been discussed a lot already, but I have not seen anyone report this particular issue, and wanted to see if others can reproduce it.  I've been using an X200 for the last few years and finally moved up to the X250 now that decent screen options are available and the Trackpoint's physical buttons have returned. It's awesome... on the whole.  I got the machine yesterday, but to my surprise, I could not effectively navigate using the Trackpoint. Even with the Trackpad disabled, I found the Trackpoint giving me all sorts of trouble:  Left clicks constantly turning into drags. Drags not releasing (left button is released to drop, but drag remains in operation - item is not dropped). Left clicks not registering at all. I spent hours experimenting with drivers, kernels (in Linux), software settings etc. with no success, but now I have figured out what is happening: Coming from the X200 with no trackpad, I am used to resting my palm (base of thumb) on the wristpad beneath the trackpoint buttons. When I do this on the X250, I am resting my palm on the inactive trackpad. It turns out, even though the trackpad is deactivated (at both OS and BIOS levels), broad physical skin contact with the trackpad causes the trackpoint buttons to become unresponsive - it's as if I am stressing the internals of the trackpoint / pad combo system and it can only handle so much input, so it consta...

Hi all. I've seen this issue posted about many times before and can't get a hold of lenovo. When I try to use the "contact us - email" page the link doesn't work!  I have a x250 I purchased in 2015. It has been working great until recently. I usually use the trackpoint and have the touchpad disabled. Recently it just stops working and the only way I can get the mouse to function again is by using an external standard mouse. When I go to mouse settings it doesn't even recognize that I have a touchpad/trackpoint, even after installing updated ULTRANAV drivers. This also extends to the keyboard, some days the keyboard will not work at all. The only thing I can do is restart 100 times and cross my fingers it works one time. I've tried moving the mouse at the login screen, pressing firmly on the touchpad, etc. Nothing works aside from the off chance it cooperates after restarting.So, I have updated drivers numerous times for windows 10 and yet my trackpoint/touchpad still seem to rarely work. I am out of a warranty on this so I'm not sure what to do. My boyfriend is suggesting a factory reset, does anyone think that will work or have any other ideas? Thanks.

Hello, I have just purchased an x250 which has the new dedicated trackpoint buttons. However these do not function even though the latest driver is installed. The trackpoint does not function either. The synaptics settings have the trackpoint unticked (disabled) and greyed out, its not possible to enable it there. The BIOS is updated and the trackpoint is enabled in there.  Does anyone have an idea how to enable the trackpoint?(sidenote the touchpad functions well)

Hi guys,  I am trying to purchase a second laptop for personal use and I have been looking at a used X240 and X250. From many reviews, it says the old rubbery texture on Thinkpads have been replaced. Is Lenovo putting on a different coat of this texture now or is there lack of coating? I used to be loyal to Thinkpads but the only thing that irritated me was those corner wear. Thanks in advance!

Hi, my laptop is ThinkPad X250 bought last year. I can see that it has the SIM card slot for installation of SIM card. However, after I purchase a new SIM card and service then I realize that I cannot get onto the internet with the SIM card. The SIM card should be 3G/4G ready which is not only a sole phone card for calling. Is it because my model does not support wireless WAN? What can I do to check if my model can get onto the mobile internet?? I DO NOT mean WiFi If it does not support mobile internet, why it has a SIM card slot available?? so wired to me Can I add any extra hardware to make it 3G/4G possible if it does not support originally??

For a while now, I have wondered why the virtual buttons shown in the utility http://imgur.com/Lljj1Z7 don?t function as advertised. According to the utility, I should get a left click if I depress the left are of the touchpad, a middle click if I push on the bumps, and a right click if I depress the right half of the touchpad. In my experience, I get a left click regardless of where I depress the touchpad. The only exception is when I depress the bumps in the top middle of the touchpad?when I do that, the mouse enters some weird scrolly mode where I scan scroll stuff with the trackpoint. It definitely does not emit a middle click. But, more importantly, I cannot figure out how to get trackpoint mode to emit a right click. How do I get trackpoint classic mode to work? Is there a way to downgrade the drive or use a non-lenovo branded driver to get it to behave properly? Right now, I?m relying on an external mouse just to middle click and right click. I?m using Windows 10 b10240 and, as in the post?s title, my trackpoint driver is the latest listed on Lenovo?s support site (which I think WU actually installed for me)?19.0.12.61. Why don?t the virtual buttons work and are there any other workarounds that don?t involve using a mode other than Trackpoint Classic?

Answer:T540p unable to right-click with virtual buttons in trackpoint or trackpoint classic mode 19.0.12.61

Seems to have partially fixed iteslf since Windows Update (WU) installed 19.0.16. Now the right half of my touchpad performs a right click when in TrackPad Classic mode. However, the supposed ?middle click? zone still does a weird scrolly mode instead of sending a middle click. Guess I still have to use an external mouse to accomplish a middle click when using Classic TrackPoint mode, but at least the situtaion is better than when I couldn?t right click with this mode.

Hi, I got an S230u Twist last autumn and have been really happy with it. At the time, I ordered a set of replacement rubber TrackPoint caps. When I replaced the original cap the other day, I realised that the replacement ones are about 0.5mm shorter than the original one, with the result that the H and G keys get caught on the edge of the cap; you have to hit them quite hard to get them to work. I compared all the new caps from the packet against the original one, and sure enough; they're all a little too short. They fit, but it's annoying to have to go back and make sure all my ""G"s and "H"s typed correctly.  Has anyone else had the same problem? Lenovo, could this just have been a bad batch, and if so can I return the unused ones for a replacement set that is the correct height? 

Answer:S230u - replacement trackpoint TrackPoint caps are too short

If you bought them from Lenovo I'd just try and return them. If not dispute on eBay/PayPal/Credit Card. But never use poor quality TrackPoint Caps. Remember if a computer is running efficiently so is the person behind it generally.

My brand new direct from the factory X250(swedish/finish backlit keyboard) have a bad key. The D key works inconsistenly, you have to press it a lot harder than all the other keys making it a pain to use when you write because you have to anticipate every upcoming D and press harder. (It has to travel further down compared to the other keys).I am actually very dissapointed with this, the computer was expensive and should not suffer from factory defects such as a bad keyboard key.Is this something i can fix myself? I need the computer and don't wan't to send it away for multiple weeks or deal with the logistics of having to ship it and recive it.

I've just received a new X250, maxed out, and I'm really unhappy. Within a few minutes of booting it, I was seeing red and blue horizontal lines on the screen. I hoped these would be fixed by updates, but regardless of the driver, they are still there. To add insult to injury, the ports on the left hand side of the laptop do not line up with the casing. The USB port can be used, but the Display Port is seriously rubbing. The VGA connector is unusable. I'd hoped I'd have the laptop a week before I started a new job, and now it looks like I will be a week later. Does anyone know how I best approach Lenovo for a replacement under the Sale of Goods Act? I really don't want it to be repaired - this is a bad machine.

Answer:Really disappointed in new X250

Sorry to hear about the issues with your new X250. That must be very frustrating. According to Lenovo, returns should be easy providing you do it within 14 days.
 
I appreciate you may not receive the replacement before you start your new job. You might want to ask Lenovo if they have a similarly configured X250 in stock that they could send you instead of waiting for the replacement to come from China.

Hello, I have been purchasing Thinkpads for about 10 years and ran into a new problem with a brand new X250.  I purchased a Samsung 850 500gb for it.  After configuring the laptop as our normal image, I then copied the drive and everything was fine.  After that, I put the Samsung drive in (already imaged) and the machine would go to a black screen after POST.  It wouldn't even boot off USB drive.  Very confused, so I put the original drive in, and it won't boot, just a flashing underscore on the top right, but it will boot from USB.  I already checked the secure boot and tinkered with the BIOS.  Both drives test fine in my X230.  I have the machine in Japan and really don't want to fight with warranty replacement, because it really seems like a BIOS problem.  One more note, just updated BIOS to 1.15 and still have the problem.  Thank you in advance!

Answer:X250 Cannot boot on new SSD

Almost the same problem here.  Just cloned our x250's drive to a new Samsung 850, swapped the new drive in, it worked fine for a couple of boots, but now machine won't boot even to the point of any lights or the fan coming on with either the new or the old drive in.  Dead as a brick.  I've tried with and without the battery, I've tried the reset hole, tried letting the machine sit for a while with no power or battery to try to drain the internal battery, nothing seems to work. Any suggestions before I phone IBM are appreciated.

Good morning everyone. I installed on my x250 (using a free WWAN slot) M.2 SSD disk - ADATA Premier SP600 256GB M.2 SSD. First installation: April 2016. The disk worked great. After a "BIG windows10 update" the drive began to freeze and died on August 2016. The drive was replaced with a new one. On March 2017 the problem returned (in the new disk) - again began to freeze and died.From here my question arises - did I make a mistake somewhere? Do dear forumers who did similar installations on their x250 have similar problems? What can I do to prevent the problem on the third drive? During installation I did not mix anything in BIOS etc - just "plug ang play". I would be very grateful for your help.

Hi, I just bought a X250 today. I received it with Windows 7 Pro, and the first thing I did was upgrade it to Windows 10. After an hour of use, I noticed that the battery was draining really fast. I clicked in the battery icon on the system tray and noticed that it says: Battery 1: This battery is not available for useBattery 2: 40% (or whatever) I opened Device Manager and I see two devices listed under the "batteries" section, both of them called "Battery with Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method" (translating from Spanish, which is my system language, so it might not be exactly like this). I guess this means that the system indeed detects that there are two batteries, so it looks like a software problem. I right clicked on both of them and selected "uninstall", and then went to action > look for hardware changes, so that should refresh the driver. After doing that, the "battery 1: this battery is not available" message still appears. I also noticed that there was a power manager application from Lenovo which is not compatible with Windows 10. After upgrading, Windows notified me that this app had been removed and I don't see a W10 equivalent on the support downloads section of the Lenovo website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Pau

Answer:X250 Battery 1 "is not available for use"

I also tried unplugging the second battery (the removable one). Immediately after unplugging it, the computer shuts down. If I turn it on without the second battery and plugged into the wall outlet, the icon in the lower right corner (system tray) says "no battery found"; however, on device manager I still can see one battery appearing. If I click on "properties" in device manager, it says that the device is working correctly, and there is no sign of any error log or crash report inside the battery properties in device manager.  I tried updating the BIOS and resetting BIOS to defaults, and it makes no difference. I also tried running Ubuntu from a USB stick ("try" option) and it only detects the second battery, not the integrated one.  I guess it must be a hardware problem.

Hello guys I recently bought a second hand X250 with an Intel 240gb SSD installed and I am planning to install also an M.2 SSD to install Linux.I have already installed Linux in another partition in the Intel, but in general I am not a big fan of grub and also I don't like the restriction of maximum 4 primary partitions per disk. I would prefer to keep the Windows drive 100% clean of any Linux staff.So, I'm planning to install my Linux in the M.2 drive (I have already cleaned my system disk of the Linux staff, grub etc) and I was wondering if choosing the boot up device from the bios is going to be an option, without grub or other boot loaders. I just want to leave the Intel as default boot device and when I want to boot up in Linux, I will choose to boot from the M.2 SSD.Will such a setup work in my Thinkpad?As far as the M.2 drive itself, a 120 gb is more than enough and I am planning to go for an ADATA. I have read a lot of negative reviews about the Transcend M.2s and I don't trust "random" manufacturers, like ZTC or KingDian. Is there any better option for me? Thank you very much for your time. I 'm looking forward to your replies. Cheers

hello everyone,I have problem with random BSOD with Windows 10 running on X250.The BSOD error may vary and is not probably important (Windows encountered problem.., kernel_inpage_error, critical_process_died etc. it might not be precise wording from BSOD). The memory dump is never created nor anything is logged in windows EventViewer until next start.I found out that problem is that system HDD (SSD SAMSUN MZ7LN256HCHP-000L7) gets disconnected (or switched off?) and this causes the BSOD.I played with Power option little bit and at some point I could simulate the issue with setting in Power Option -> "Turn off harddisk after". But this does not fixes the issue completely. I have disabled this option and still get the BSOD randomly even on AC. I do not want to switch everything to full (every power option).So before I am going to contact Lenovo for repair, does anyone experienced the similar issue? I think that it could be issue with either motherboard, SATA cable or Samsung SSD drive.I have tried the Lenovo system check (bios app) testing Motherboard, harddisk, memory etc. No problem.

I recently bought an X250, and immediately upon using it, found that the spacebar is not as responsive as all the older thinkpads I've had in the past. Specifically, when I type I press on the right side of the spacebar to create a space, but my usual amount of force is no longer responded to by the keyboard. If I push harder, it will respond, but that's annoying because it slows down my typing speed. If I press on the middle of the spacebar it works much better, and if I press it with my left thumb it works better, too. Does that mean I'm typing wrong all these years, or did I end up with a bad key?  I have depot service, so would Lenovo address this if I send it in? If I send this in, do I need to remove all the data on the machine? Would they replace the spacebar or the entire keyboard as I saw somewhere? How long would it take? Gotta say that the keyboard is much worse than the X230 that I am coming from. Thanks for any heads up!

Answer:X250 Spacebar

I too have this problem.What's the solution other than retraining your typing?

Question: X250 3rd SSD slot

Hi there! I just bought the brand new X250 with a kind of cool feature : having the possibility to use 3 "drives". I chose the following storage options :  - 500 Go, 7200 tr/min, 2,5 inch  - SSD 16 Go, Serial ATA3, simple  - 3rd slot for SSD card The option of having a 3rd SSD is cool, but I didn't find any information about what kind of SSD card can be used for that slot. There are many types of SSD card. I would like to know which one to choose to add a "3rd SSD" (for hosting the main system, as the two others will serve as media storage for the HDD and cache for the 1st SSD). Is it a M2 ? Which model can fit in? Thanks in advance for the answers. Cheers.

Question: X250 overheating

So I've had this overheating issue also with my previous X240 which decomissioned as a faulty device. I thought that the X240 was just single mistake so I went and ordered new X250 with i7, 8GB ram and 512GB SSD for my new work laptop to replace the faulty X240. Not long after receiving the X250 I started seeing random slowness and fans yelling like maniacs. This was all too familiar for me so I went up and fired journalctl only to find out that yet another design flaw. Thanks Lenovo. I was not even compiling or doing anything CPU intensive.

I have a x250 which for some reason has a broken CPU fan lock (the thing that holds the fan ribbon to the mohterboard......It just snapped of one day and started ratteling around in the case. In order for the X250 to work it has to be taped down (ugh I know) I was wondering if there was anywhere to get a new one of those cu fan ribon locking things

Answer:X250 fan issue

If you mean locker piece for slot that keeps cpu fan cable in place then only way to solve that is to solder old port off and sold new one on or it would be a motherboard replacement the lock piece is not sold standalone since it's stuck to the slot area by default.

Question: X250 cheeping

Hello Community, i bought a Thinkpad X250 (20cls06d00 with i7) some weeks ago and i'm almost satisfied. But, there is a continuously, quit, but  high frequency cheep/sound (like a tinnitus). It comes from the left keyboard side, next to the trackpoint. It's audible in a usual working distance. It doesnt matter if it's running on the battery or the power supply and its not the cooler. Does anyone has the same problem?Is it a software or hardware problem? Thanks for the support.Kind RegardsHonigkopf System:Windows 7 64bit Intel Core i7-5600U 2.6 - 3.2GHz, 4 MB L3-Cache, 1600MHz,15W TDP8 GB DDR3L 1600MHz  360 GB SSD (OPAL 2.0)Display:12.5" (31.8cm) FHD IPS LED (1920 x 1080)400nits, Kontrast 700:1, Anti GlareIntel HD Graphics 5500(Shared)

Answer:X250 cheeping

I have the i7-5600u x250 as well. The high freq sound you are complaining about is its fan noise. I am really annoyed by it as well. However, it is only audible when my CPU approaches 70-80 degree range. I frequent the Thinkpad reddit and have come across others who complain about the same issue there. www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad

Answer:X250 shuts down during startup

Hi Cyberpunkshadow,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
This issue doesn?t look like an issue with software and to diagnose the same the system is not turning on and not even going into BIOS or safe mode. Hence, there are chances of hardware failure. So, I request you to take the system to the nearest service centre to diagnose the system.
 
Therefore I would request you to please find the link given below to find the nearest service centre as per your location.

Question: X250 Screen Hinge

Hi all,  I recently purchased a brand new X250 laptop, I am slightly concerned though that the hinges are not quite up to scratch. I was expecting really tight, rigid hinges, with no play or movement at all. I was under the impression these would be really tight and the only way to open, close, or move the screen would be by holding one hand on the base and the other to adjust the lid.  However, with mine, they do feel very weak and loose. When typing, there is movement of a few milimetres of wobble which I was not quite expecting.  Is there anything I could do to tighthen these hinges myself? I am not comfortable at all to take the laptop apart! I did wonder if wrapping dental floss around the metal part of the hinge would make a difference as it seems that the hinge is not going through completely. One side has the cables, and the other is attached to the base. What would be your suggestions?  It does of course have a warranty with Lenovo - but I am concerned as well as I have read that hinges might not be covered by warranty! There are no cracks at all in the unit whatsoever. No damage, and the problem is always when the laptop is on the desk.  I really appreciate any help and suggestions with this matter.  Many thanks. 

Answer:X250 Screen Hinge

Just contact technical support. It is covered under warranty. If they break, then it is considered abuse, which is not covered under warranty.

Hello,I have had a x230 for the past year and have just upgraded to a new x250. Currently I have both and am moving files etc over. The x230 touchpad was never perfect, but I've used a bunch of different laptops and I'm never keen on touchpads. They always seem to be either oversensitive or undersensitive. But I have got used to the one on the x230 But compared to the x230, my new x250 touchpad is a problem. I find that to left click something I have to make sure I click only in the very left hand side at the very front of the pad. Right on the edge of the bottom left hand corner. That's the only place a left click will register as a left click. Although about 30% of the time it will actually register as a right click and the right click menu will appear. And another 10% of the time no click will register at all - and I have to click away, move the cursor around, etc before trying again to see if I get a left click or right click response. Is this something that will correct itself with use? OR is it a fault with the x250 touchpad? Or a general deficiency with touchpads? Is there anything I can do to right it? Or do I need to get support of some kind? I'm in the middle of moving all my work from one laptop to another so I'm not keen on sending the device away. Or losing it for any period. Thanks.

Answer:New x250 - Touchpad Sensitivity?

Hi Phil2015,
 
Have you explored the Mouse Control Panel ThinkPad tab to see if any of those adjustments help (look at Advanced too)?
 
The TouchPad distinguishes between right and left clicks through touch. It's a capacitive sensor technology. Works well with the water content in your finger tips, but not always so well with finger nails. Does knowing this help?

Answer:Upgrade HD TN to FHD IPS for X250 (Windows 7). Adv...

Hello,
 
I'm not a Lenovo employee, so cannot answer some of your questions exactly, but let me try to answer as a fellow X250 user who went from an HD IPS (1366768) to FHD IPS (19201080) panel about nine hours ago.
 

When the display panel was switched out, the display scaling changed from 100% to 125%.  Plenty of applications handle the new scaling just fine, but some of older ones looked blurry as a result of how fonts are scaled up in them.  Switching to 100% display scaling solved this and the apps now display crisp, if somewhat small, text.
Text is much sharper on the FHD display than the HD display, which is sort of expected given the new screen has nearly twice as many pixels as the old one.  Both screens I had were IPS, though, so I cannot make a direct comparison between TN and IPS.
I would suggest getting the screen installed by a Lenovo authorized service center.  According to this page, the contact information for Lenovo Ireland Sales and Customer Support is+353(01) 6535 568, and hours are from Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm GMT

One thing I've noticed is that the new screen seems a lot brighter than the old one.  Again, not sure how this compares with TN versus IPS screens, but just something to be aware of.

I have been a ThinkPad user for many many years - R Series, T Series, W Series, and now the X250. So far - I am very pleased and it is serving its purpose well.  I have to say though, I miss the device status lights I had on my previous models.  I did not realize how much I relied on the hdd status light until it is MIA on the new X250.  Ouch. If there is any hesitation or delay during boot, saving, copying, browsing, installing, etc, I always glance at the hdd indicator to see if it is busy.  When travelling, I learned to rely on the wifi indicator just to glance down and see if the radio is turned on. Is there a work around or suggested alternative?  Am I missing something obvious? Thanks in advance!

Question: Muted colours x250

Hello! I just got my Thinkpad X250 and I noticed immediately that the colours seemed rather....off.I pointed it out to my boyfriend, as he has superior computer knowledge to me, and he chalked it up to an improved screen on the laptop versus my old desktop.However, I don't think that's it. Photos, as well as the colour I've selected for my Outlook is consistent across my desktop, other laptops, tablets and my phone, but displays totally muted and flat on the laptop.Photos also appear similarly strange.Compared with other WIndows8 devices (specifically a Windows Surface) the icons are all off-colour as well, and photos don't appear correct, they're slightly off.I would try to correct the issue in Colour Management but I honestly just don't know enough to know how to fix it. I don't know what to do or how to fix this and any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated.

Answer:X250 Trackpad in an X240?

Hello XThinkpadUser, I am very sorry, but I advice You to forget this idea. There are most likely going to be some imcopatibilities in BIOS, and if not so, then some differences with the shape of the keyboard / trackpad connector. Plus you would need to replace the whole keyboard bezel. My opinion is based on the same glitch with old X200 and X201 - many people asked if X200 can be backwards upgraded with touchpad - it can be definitely not (afaik). Nobody can mark your question as impossible until first X250's arrive, but in your case I would hurry selling your X240 unit. Sooner you do it, you will get more paid for it... (believe me, you have my best sympathy, but I am in much more huge trap - what shall I my X220 change for?? :-) ) Regards,skrble

My customized X250 is due to arrive at my house on Tuesday May 5. Between the time when I ordered the unit and now, I had the chance to compare the screen sizes at buddy's house who has both. I'm thinking I'll like the larger screen on the X1 much better. So -- I'd like to exchange the X250 for a customized X1. I looked at the return policies, which mention a 15% restocking fee. Because I want to exchange the unit for something different, will this fee still apply? Should I accept delivery of the X250 and then initiate an RMA? Can I refuse delivery instead? Yeah, I realize I should have researched this in more detail before pushing the order submit button. But alas I didn't. So what are my options here? Basically, I want to give Lenovo more money. Surely they can take back the X250 and not charge the restocking fee, right?

I just got this X250 several days ago and I love it. It has the internal 3-cell and the 6-cell. My 6-cell battery is currently at 15% and the internal 3-cell battery is at 100%, so it says overall 36% battery life.Is it a problem that when I use this computer, the internal battery will most likely not be being used? Should I let the 6-cell die every so often to then use the internal 3-cell, and then charge once I have used the 3-cell? Or should I just disregard and charge whenever, even if it would only be charging the 6-cell up?Btw, this is an excellent problem to have that I never envisioned, with the 6-cell being so good that I worry that I wil always be charging up the 6-cell, but not the 3-cell, because I will rarely get to the point that I need the 3-cell. I am aware that there is a way to set up battery thresholds.  However, I do not see this option in my Lenovo Settings.  I also just installed this Power Management Driver, but I don't see anything to open with it: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/migr-4gxpeg If there is a way that I can have it set so that at 10% battery life on the 6 cell, it switches to the 3 cell, that would be great.  Any info is very appreciated!

Answer:How to set up battery thresholds in X250?

NEVER MIND!!!I just noticed that when it reaches 5%, it automatically is drawing power from the 3-Cell. I think this should be fine. Not sure if this is due to the driver or would have been happening anyway (I think this is the latter), but I will leave it as it is.Thanks anyway for your help!!

Hi,I've got a new x250 - replaced my T540p due to more travel and I do like it a lot. There is one thing that drives me crazy - the strangely unresponsive space key. I tend to hit space on the right hand side, and it works about 50% of time. Is it me, or is it abnormal? It works fine when hit right in the middle, so I am wondering whether it is a general design flaw, or just something wrong with my computer.

Hi I bought a 2nd hand x250 online and when i reaached home i noticed battery 1 was no available for use. I contacted the seller and he said that it did not come with one. So it just has an extended external battery that came with it. I am confused because i have another model when has one internal and i bought an external (extended) battery so i have two. I had no idea that some models do NOT have an internal battery. Can i buy one and fit an internal battery myself or are some models not compatible with an internal battery?

Hello, I am having a x250. It is about 6 months old. I am using Ubuntu as OS. For around 4 months my laptop battery life was around 5-6 hours. But in the last 2 months the battery life decreased dramaticaly. Now it is around 3-4 hours. Ubuntu Battery manager shows Sony Battery capacticy 85% and LGC battery 69% of original capactiy. I already tried a manual battery gauge reset. (Let the laptop battery completly drain until Laptop cannot.) This did not helped. What elese I can do?  

Answer:X250 - low battery life

Hi and welcome, fxpapsI'm afraid this battery behavior is caused by the battery charging mode. Most likely the OS is charging it to the 100% and trying to keep full charged. It's very harmfully for the battery healthy. That's why the Lenovo Power Manager had a very reach feature - battery charge threshold.Certainly, 6 months seems very short period for the battery degradation. At the same time it might be enough if the battery has a big number of the charging cycle (250...300+) and charging mode was as I've described above.

Hello all,The built-in "Lenovo Update" agent program recommended a BIOS update v1.23 (it's a critical update), so I did. And then my system doesn't boot: it's hangs on the "Starting Windows" logo page (Windows 7 64 bit). So I am trying to rollback to the last working version v1.21. Confirmed that my machine is type 20CL, went here, go the bootable CD, successfully went to the BIOS Update Utility, and then it said: "system program file is not correct for this system" ? The followings settings in BIOS were applied to try enable a rollback of BIOS but failed...??? * I am sure: - my download was correct- no issue on handling the ISO burning to CD- this has nothing to do with Windows or operating system* Any idea folks?I really really need my system back... Thanks.Angus

X250 with win 10 x64 OS using Office rise hight temperature and get noisy on fan.  P/N is 20CL-S78C00 with i7 CPU. Temp. rise up to 94 C. All new drivers for win 10 x64 from lenovo (ACPI, power manager, chipset...) Do somebody have same problem with this model or any solutions?

Answer:X250 Owerheating using office?

How old is the laptop? Since when it rise to 94C it sounds like thermal paste between cpu and heatsink is worn off which I mean it's dry and not as sticky as it should be so then you probably need to repaste the laptop and see if temp will still hit 94c

Hi, I have an X250 with Windows 10. Recently my touchpad button got mechanically stuck, so I removed the touchpad, fiddled with the button until it would release when pressed, and I put everything back together. Unfortunately now the touchpad is not working as before. These are the symptoms: 1. Touchpad often freezes for several minutes, though I can use a USB mouse without any problems. It seems it freezes when CPU is hight, or if I click too many times the touchpad, or make too many gestures. For example if I try to move the cursor in circles, the touchpad freezes, along with the buttons and tracker. 2. Sometimes when I press left click, I get the scroll cursor as if I pressed the  middle button.  Was anyone confronted with this problem? My suspicion is that I might not have plugged in the connector cable properly. I have struggled to put the cable back in the touchpad but I didn't want to break it. Any ideas how to push that cable in the touchpad, or how I can know if it's properly connected? Thanks.

Dear All, I have just received my X250. So far I am quite happy (though I still cling to my x220 for the keyboard and trackpoint a bit). There is one major drawback however: the display. I got the FHD (1920x1080) IPS non-touch display hoping for crystal clear and sharp image. However, I had to figure out that (due to very bad implementation of HDPI-scaling in Windows) the screen is bearly not usable. Using the full resolution and no scaling in Windows the font is bearly readable. Using the HDPI-scaling in Windows partly distorts buttons, sometimes gives blurry text or even does not work in some applications (Adobe, Dropbox). Setting the resolution to 1366x768 obviously gives blurry text. Hence I am thinking of downgrading the hardware display from the FHD to the HD version. From the following document (https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x250_frubom_20150127.pdf) I figured out the FRUs current FHD IPS non-touch: FRU 00HM745planned HD IPS non-touch: FRU 00HN839 Both seem to have a 30pin connector and same dimensions. However, my question is, whether the exchange is possible just swapping the hardware. Or would that require further tweaks (e.g. BIOS)? If you have any suggestions how I can get the FHD display to work properly and render readable text with Windows would be even better but after reading a lot of complaints on the issue of HDPI displays and Windows I actually gave up on this option. Thanks much in advance for any ...

Answer:X250 Display Replacement: FHD to HD

Did anyone answer this?!? I'm considering going the *other* way, from the 1366 IPS panel to the 1920 IPS panel.  I'll have the original one to swap back if I don't like it, obviously - so the risk is low.  And at $90 shipped, the FRU 00HM745 LCD is not a big deal. I'm used to my mediocre but perfectly scaled 1440x900 displays in the X200s & X201s, hence the 1366 is just a tad too low for RDP sessions to my other machines.  And the 1920 sounded good, altho I'm a little worried of exactly what you stated - it'll be *too* small.  Which I would hope to adjust via fonts etc., but it sounds like there are limitations... But does it require a different BIOS? Graphics output?  Or is it a drop-in swap? (The physical swap is no issue, I fix screens on X61s/X200/X200s/X201/X201s/X2220/X230 models regularly . . . ) Thanks

Hello all, We have corporative Lenovo X250 type 20CM-003HRT. So, it has internal SSD disk 16GB as first HDD. Our problem is that our OS Image Installation Process requires only 1 HDD to be connected. Coluld you please help me to disable or uninstall the Micro SSD?Many thanks in advance!

Answer:X250 internal SSD disable

Hello,
That would be the card in the M.2 2242 slot.  The 16GB SSD is used as a cache when a hard disk drive is present in order to speed up disk access.  From looking at the X250 20CM-003HRT page, it looks like this model shipped with a 1TB HDD.
 
If you wish to permanently remove the M.2 card, you can do so by removing the base cover assembly from the bottom of the ThinkPad.  The X250 Hardware Maintenance Manual explains how to do this.  One thing I noticed is that if an SD Card is inserted, it will make it impossible to remove the base cover assembly, so be sure to first eject the SD Card is one is present in the system before you begin.
 
If you just wish to temporarily disable the M.2 card. there may be an option is the UEFI/BIOS firmware to do this.  I do not have my X250 near me, so I cannot check this myself right now.

Hello everyone.I recently purchased a Lenovo refurbished X250 ThinkPad, and it just arrived yesterday. Of course, one of the first things I do is turn it on to check out the system, only the backlight never activated. I can see the screen if I shine an external light, it's currently on the windows 8 set up screen.I read elsewhere that this is most likely an inverter problem, or something is wrong with the fuse. I'm not very tech-savvy, and I'm not quite sure how to proceed. The laptop's warranty extends until october 2016.Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I already like this laptop far too much to just let it go.Thanks in advance!

Answer:No Backlight on Refurbished x250

Welcome to the forum.
 
> the backlight never activated. I can see the screen if I shine an external light
That's a symptom of a defective backlight.
 
>  most likely an inverter problem
The backlights in modern notebooks are all LED so inverters are no longer used.
 
> I recently purchased a Lenovo refurbished X250 ThinkPad, and it just arrived yesterday.
I would return it immediately and request the seller to either repair or replace the unit or refund your money. You shouldn't have to fix a problem like this on your own, especially with a brand new (refurbished) product.

My x250 is having some issues. While on, the fan constantly runs on max, and when the computer is shut down, a fan error shows up on the BIOS screen for a moment before dissapearing. The computer seems to otherwise work fine, and the CPU doesn't seem to be running at an abnormally high temperature. Any suggestions?

Answer:ThinkPad X250 Fan Issues

Hi JM,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I understand that you are getting fan error before system is shutting down.
 
Possible causes for fan error could be dried lubrication in the fan, worn bearings, or just a dust build up. Hence try cleaning the fan once.
 
Ambient temperature should be taken into consideration. System will shut down during increased loads on the CPU or GPU.
 
This happens when the CPU or GPU overheats - typically above 95C. It?s a protective measure taken as to not fry your CPU.
 

Did you do a BIOS/driver update recently? Click here to update the latest BIOS driver.
If you open up your task manager, do you see any processes that are consuming high percentages of CPU?
Also run virus scan with the latest virus definitions and check for no viruses or malware.

Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best Regards,
 
Poojitha.

This happens also when I boot in Safe Mode.I removed the m.2 drive and everything works perfectly again. To be noted that:1 - I have the latest BIOS in my Thinkpad2 - I have made a disk test of the m.2 drive from the BIOS boot menu and the drive is recognized, no defects3 - My primary SSD disk is encrypted with PGP (not sure this matters) Any idea what may be causing this and how to solve it? Thanks, Kurt

Hi, I got a new X250 (Windows 10, 64 bit) to replace my old (and loved) X220. On the X220, I could boot the machine with a swipe on the fingerprint scanner. When the machine was off, I opened the lid, the fingerprint scanner had a green light, I swiped the finger and it booted and logged in all the way to windows including the power-on password in the bios. With my X250 I cannot seem to replicate this functionality. First of all, the only version of the fingerprint software I get running on Windows 10 ist "ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software 6.0.0". Second, there is not feature as in th v5.9 I had on my X220 to enable the feature that fingerprint swipe replaces power-on button. Is there any way I can get that feature as well on the X250?

Question: X250 File recovery

Hi I'm living in KL Malaysia. I just bought a Thinkpad X250 a few wks ago. And my hard drive just died last wk.The Lenovo centre here has confirmed that they will replace it as its under warranty. The problem is, the machine was so new I didn't have time to back up and now have a problem recovering my files: 1. Lenovo says they  will not do recovery (apprarently they don't have the software (?) and its not their policy). No matter that the machine is only a few wks old and I didn't have time to back up.Any advice on this as its very unfair and not what you'd expect fm a brand like Lenovo 2. Now, after checking, I have to spend between US$300-$500 to go to a recovery centre. Does anyone know a reasonably priced recovery centre in KL (file size 500GB-650GB) ?ThanksAndre 

Answer:X250 File recovery

Unfortunately, I think you are out of luck.  It falls on the owner to ensure that databackup is performed and they (all companies) do not offer data recovery.  When looking at data recovery, you have two categories of failure.  First, hardware failure and you either cannot or don't want ot try to pull the data off with a software solution.  The other one is either light hardware failure or just a software issue.  Unable to know what you are experiencing, so I cannot comment directly, but, if you are having a failure in the first group, most likely the $300-500 will not cover it.  I have tinkered with data recovery a bit, and I suggest not trying it yourself.

Thinkpad x250, less than two years old. Running Windows 10. Yesterday afternoon after having my laptop plugged in for about a half an hour, I realised that it hadn't increased in charge at all from 9%. I clicked to open the charging icon on the taskbar and it said Battery 1 was at 12% and charging, while Battery 2 was at 5% and not charging. I unplugged, turned my cable and plugged it back in - same thing. I took the battery out, waited a moment, put it back in. No dice. I repeated this step a couple times. I left it to charge overnight, hoping that might resolve something but no luck. When I woke up this morning, it was now at 8%, with Battery 1 at 10% and charging while Battery 2 remained at 5% without charging. My boyfriend has the same charger, so I switched to his to experiment. Battery 2 started to "charge" while Battery 1 stopped. Neither has gained any charge, however. When I switched back to my charging cable, Battery 2 continues to be the one to "charge" and now the battery says it's at 7%. I uninstalled the drivers, took the battery out for a minute and rebooted, reinstalled the drivers, and there's been no change. I went into Lenovo Settings and tried to run the Reset Gauge, but it failed as the battery would not charge. Additionally, none of the thresholds are on. As it is being powered by the cable, and not shutting down, I know that it might be alright as long as I keep it plugged in perpetually, but I'm concerned that once th...

Answer:Using Sierra EM7445 on X250

I?m still using a previous generation Lenovo laptop, X240. It includes an m.2 slot for WWAN devices. All WWAN devices are currently using USB interface, and none are using PCI-E, so only USB connectors are required to function in laptop?s m.2 slot. USB version in X240 and X250 is 2.0 only. And Sierra Wireless EM7445 supports USB 3.0 already, so even if the device is capable of receiving LTE data very fast, using carrier aggregation, there still can be a real bottleneck in data throughput, because the device will need to fallback to the older USB 2.0 protocol when coupled with a previous generation laptop, like X240 or X250.Also every time I turn my laptop on or wake up it from sleep, I?m getting a Windows notification ?This device can perform faster. Please connect it to a USB 3.0 port?. Lto 6 tapes
