X201 Tablet (3093) Audio problem OS Deployment - XP SP2 Tablet Edition

Question: X201 Tablet (3093) Audio problem OS Deployment - XP SP2 Tablet Edition

Hello. We've got an unusual problem when applying driverpackage for lenovo x201.OSD with SCCM 2007.. The Audio driver installs successfully during OSD (with silent install switch) and in devicemanager we can see that the conexant 20585 Smart Audio HD driver has been installed. Same with "Intel screen audio". But in the Audio options in controlpanel all the fields is grayed out.There is with other words no associated soundcard / standard device. If we install the driver again, logged in as an user the recently grayed out fields in Audio options automagically now shows the correct input / output devices (Conexant audio) and the sound starts working. Is there some issue when installing drivers in SYSTEM context?Notice: There is no "?" in device manager. BR!

Answer:lenovo x201 tablet 3093-bf8 support multi touch??(pen & finger)

3093-bf8 does not appear in the tabook reference so it was probably a custom build. Most X201 tablets do not support finger touch, but you can find the screen FRU by entering your serial number here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/partsLookup.page

Has anyone run into the problem where there is no audio on an X61 tablet even though SoundMax drivers are shown to be installed properly?  Any help would be appreciated. Thx

Answer:No audio on X61 tablet running Window XP Tablet Edition

I have the same issue right now on an X60 tablet that I just upgraded to Vista Ultimate.  All of my drivers are up to date, except it shows on windows update that I have an audio driver still to update.  I go through the process, and then it will not install the update.  I wish I could help with this more, but wanted to let you know that others have similar problems. I hope someone can help us.B

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

I'm new to the Tablet community but excited to venture into it.  My workplace provided me with an X201 Tablet type 2985 model C5U.  The pen works great but I can emulate any of the finger/touch demos.  Is this not supported with my type or model?  Or do I need a special driver.  When I open the tablet PC settings, I'm given the option to identify my screen as PEN or TOUCH.  While I select TOUCH, no finger combination (one or two) that presses my screen will invoke anything.  I was hoping this would be a touch solutoin albeit more powerful than the iPad.  Appreciate your responses everyone. Thank you. L

Stylus works great in landscape mode but when I switch to portrait the pointer moves  all over the screen. I can't Calibrate because when I open it and get the screen touching it  gives no response. Tech Support wants me to re-image my computer  but I want to do that as a last resort since it will  mean several hours of reloading programs.  I think it is driver related.

Hi, I have the problem that whenever the systems needs more power (for example when I converte photos from raw to jepg) my sound interrupts quite often. Often I could hardly use my computer, because my courser is jumping over the screen and everything is very slow. I have found out that the task manager says that I uses 100% of my CPU. this would explain why everything is so slow, but i guess this isn't normal. I had a look at the event viewer and figured out that everytime before I have these problems I got the warning with event-id 37: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Processor-Power The speed of processor 0 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for xxx seconds since the last report. I saw this phenomenon with and without ultrabase and with and without battery mode. I used several different power profiles.I did a clean install and installed all drivers with lenovo systemupdate (except: Intel AMT 6.0 - Management Engine Interface and Serial Over LAN (SOL) Driver, ThinkVantage Active Protection System) my system:  x201 Tabletwindows 7 professional 64 bit - sp1Bios Version: 6QET69WW (1.39 )4GB RamSamsung SSD 380 I use Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 could anyone help me, or does anyone has an idea where to start to solve this problem.

According to Microsoft on this site.... http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/multitouch-hardware-reqs "....If you have touch input hardware that isn't specifically designed for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, but displays the "Designed for Windows" logo for Windows 7, you'll experience touch responsiveness at least as good as it was on Windows 7...." Based on that, I upgraded my Lenovo X201 Tablet with Windows 7 (kept up to date with Lenovo's System update, and windows update, and working well), and lost the touch screen and pen abilities completely. In system manager I have an unknown device, but no Wacom device in Human Interface Devices; and in control panel I don't have either "Pen and Touch", or "Tablet PC Settings". I tried installing the W7 drivers from the Lenovo site in Windows 7 compatibility mode, and it displayed the error "No supported tablet was found". Having failed the upgrade, I proceeded to do a clean install, and had exactly the same result. Must clarify the update was to Windows 8 Pro, then all windows and Lenovo updates, and the upgrading to 8.1 from the store, and all windows and Lenovo updates again. So I'm dumbfounded. If I lost the touch ability as advertised at least as good as it was on Windows 7...., I will go back to Windows 7. I posted this on the Microsoft site, and the Microsoft Engineer said that this happens when the hardware was not realy designed for Windows 7 ...

I know that this is not what you'd like to hear, but going back to W7 is indeed your best option in my opinion.
 
There's a plethora of issues that users reported on newer (X220/230) tablets as well since they were not designed for W8 either...
 
In my book, no OS in the world is worth such aggravation, but to each his/hers own.

Hi. I were trying to find a search function but without success. However, here is my problem.My trackpad stops working, or the half side of it. I have searched through Google and looked at several forums without luck, and installed different Ultranav drivers as well Synaptics drivers. The problem always comes back, and the laptop is just a month old. My other problem is an severe stylus accuracy problem.This is drawn with a ruler. At the edges the cursor just "spins off", looses controll! I have tried with different drivers as well with Linux (Ubuntu 11.04) and the problem always remains. I also tried with a stylus from HP with the same result. I have searched through several forums and have barely encounted someone else with an X201 and this kind of problem. (The x220 seems to have the same problem) What should I do? The stylus accuracy problem is anoying, but the trackpad problem is terrible and often useless.Thanks/Andre

Hi, I just got my ultrabase today so I plugged it in right away.  Just now I noticed that the fan on the computer has been all the time and pushing hot air out of the vents.... it never used to do that before without the dock and I'm kinda worried about the ventilation on this thing... Is this something I should be concerned about?  edit:  i just ran CPUID HW with my power setting on high performance with my external monitor and tablet monitor on and with 2 videos running ... WMP had a dvd quality movie playing and itunes was running with a another video... + onenote and firefox running (for about 15 minutes) and my max temperature was 78 celsius ... is this too hot?

Answer:x200 ultrabase: heat/ventilation problem with my x201 tablet?

notebooks do tend to run a little hotter when they're on a base.  your temps while running all that stuff is bordering on being a little hot.  you might want to make sure your vents are clear and free from dust. blow them out with a can of air.  i have to blow mine out about once a month, they just attract dust.

I'd like to upgrade the display on my x201 laptop. The outdated TFT display is getting a bit old. And I could use some expert advice - or even intelligent guesses as to whether certain LCD panels will work in the x201 laptop. The usual advice to upgrade a x201 laptop display is to go with a Hydis AFFS (similar to IPS) display e.g. the HV121WX4-120. Or alternately a Samsung PVA display e.g. the LTN121AP02-001. These are CFFL panels, so given my LED laptop, I'd also need an inverter (42W8009 or 42W8010) and CFFL variant cable e.g. 44C9909.  Okay great. But for various reasons I'd very much prefer to retain the WLED backlight, rather than change to a CFFL display. There are any number of forum posts saying that this isn't possible. But that appears to be refuted by some well documented threads that describe successful retrofits of better spec LED backlit panels in their x201 laptops e.g. using a Samsung LTN121AT07-L02 (27R2451) WLED LCD. With that thought in mind, I'm trying to discern whether a x201 tablet screen will work in my x201 laptop? e.g. a Samsung LTN121AP0310 or Toshiba LTD121KX6B-110 LCD. These are multitouch LCDs. I'm not counting on the multitouch to be operational. Just whether the LCD screen will work in a conventional manner in the laptop. Has anyone heard of these panels being retrofitted into a x201 laptop? Or spot any obvious impediments to using them in the laptop?    --Stock (original) x201 laptop LCD: Au Optroni... Read more

Perhaps the cable got severed when you were turning it around? I've had a Wifi antenna cable break this way on an HP tablet... If it's still under warranty have them check it and replace it if necessary. It could also be a loose connector but there's no way to be sure without opening the screen assembly.

I am having a VERY odd issue with Windows XP Pro and Tablet PC Edition.

I have been following Microsoft's Single-Image Deployment Supplemental Guide which discusses single-image deployment and how to use this process to deploy Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 in your organization while using your existing Windows XP Professional image.

I followed the article to a T and imported all the Tablet PC components in the Sysprep directory and then re-syspreped the box. At first once mini-setup finished the system would lock up on the Windows XP splash screen about the 3rd time the progress bar cycled through. So I went to Safe Mode and everything worked like a charm. So just as a troubleshooting step I tried to use Safe Mode with Networking. That locked up at the splash screen in the same spot which lead me to believe it was a networking issue. So I disabled all listed networking adapters and tried to boot into normal mode.

Once I saw "Applying Computer Settings" I thought all was good. So I waited until I saw the standard "Press Cntrl-Alt + Delete to Login" screen. So I hit cntrl alt delete and nothing happend. So I tried moving the mouse, and to my amazment, the entire computer is hard locked. This is happening everytime I reboot the computer into Normal mode and the login screen appears. So I tried to go back into Safe Mode with Networking to test that theory again. Although I am able to get logged into the system the system actually hard lo... Read more

Hi all,    I have a really annoying problem...my x220 tablet disconnects from the internet whenever I enter tablet mode. The internet can be working perfectly fine while in non tablet mode but as soon as I switch to tablet mode, my internet disconnects. And if I switch back to non tablet mode from tablet mode, my internet returns almost instantaneously. I can load a page in non tablet mode with no problems, switch to tablet mode and the page stops loading. If I return back to non tablet mode the page resumes loading without so much as a pause or a hiccup. Also, when I switch the computer to tablet mode, wifi networks disappear off of the "available networks" list that were there before the switch.     I've tried everything, from updating network device drivers, reinstalling network device drivers, running diagnostics, reformatting my computer, uninstalling Norton Antivirus, system restoring to days before the last known working date in normal mode and safe mode, and contacting customer support (chat and call, managed to get a hold of a rep) but none of them have worked.    I also used to have a networking log before I reformatted/system reset to factory settings and there were a ton of errors with words like avsc manager failed to "something" ...

Hi giciorek,
 
I understand that your fan/temperature problems can be frustrating.  I would try updating your BIOS and also updating Power Manager.  (Some on the forum have tried downloading ThinkPad Fan Control, but that is not an official Lenovo solution.)

Good Afternoon,
 
I have performed a conversion to XP Pro on the x201 Tablet. Everything seems to be in order but the 4 buttons on the screen do not seem to be working at intended.
The button with the circular arrow symbol performs a Ctrl Alt Del, the other 3 do nothing. 
 
I believe I installed the proper drivers for this.

Answer:X201 Tablet + Win XP

I am having the same issue. I also am unable to use the pen, though finger touch works (on my model). Unfortunately, we are having to use XP for the application we use on the tablets. The factory 7 image works fine.

I have an IBM ThinkPad X41 that was issued to me from work. I would like to reinstall the operating system to get rid of all the garbage that's on it. But, they don't have the CD's that came with the laptop. The COA on the bottom of the X41 is for WinXP Pro Tablet Edition. But, I don't have a copy in the office and they can't find it anywhere. Should I install Windows XP Professional on it or should I somehow contact IBM for the CD's to be reissued?

Any ideas???

Thanks!

Hi all, I ordered an x201 tablet (should be here within a week) but i just need a little clarification on a few things i couldn't really find answers to. 1. I purchased it without a WWAN card (as i didn't know WWAN upgradable meant you needed to buy a card separately) and i want both WWAN and GPS. Does the Gobi 2000 card on the lenovo website come with GPS? as there is no mention of it having GPS capabilities. 2. Is a screen protector worth it? I have a multi-touch screen, but after looking on the internet there seems to be a problem with screen protectors affecting the multi-touch features. (i'm not that bothered with scratches or smudges, but will not using such a protector create black spots?) 3. To increase battery life is it possible to install an express card SSD and tell the system to store frequently used items there? What sort of program would i need or will windows 7 do this for me? 4. It comes with a 1 year depot warranty, can i purchase more before the 1 year expires? is it worth it and what does it cover? 5. Is there a slice battery for the x201t like the T and W series? from what i have been reading the 8 cell battery doesn't get anywhere near the stated 8 hours, can anyone confirm this? Sorry for all the questions, probably should have researched a bit more before buying it. Regards, Dennis

Answer:Few questions about the X201 Tablet

Well i just got my X201 Tablet i can answer a few of these questions. -Screen protector won't work with multi-touch features so they are probably not worth it.-Installing an SSD card in the expresscard slot using (readydrive i think) won't really help battery life-warranty can be upgraded, but seems to be a hit and miss as most of the repairs on the x201 tablet are considered user payable items.-Battery life with very light use using an 8 cell battery is around 4 hours with half brightness and wifi. Still unsure about the gobi 2000 WWAN card. Can someone confirm that all lenovo Gobi 2000 cards come with GPS capabilities, if not, where would i find one with both WWAN and GPS. Thanks

Hi everyoneI have just gotten my x201 tablet, and have 2 questions.1. The screen has one dead pixel, is that common for x201t?2. I found neither the pen nor the touch screen is accurate. And because you can not see the cursor before you touch the screen, it's hard to catch a button or a menu item by touching. I need to try several times to get it even after calibration. Is it common for you?Thank you for your reply.

Answer:2 questions about my X201 tablet

My screen doesn't have any dead pixels, so I want to say that isn't normal, and I would try to get it exchanged. Calibration isn't perfect on any tablet, but when calibrating you need to try to calibrate it with the screen oriented how you will use it in tablet mode, and calibrate with the screen at whatever angle you will typically use it in. Typically the screen is the most accurate in the center and the least accurate along the edges. I've also read that it will never be better than how it was from the factory, so I just reset mine and have adapted how I write to the factory calibration. After a week or two you don't even notice if the stylus matches up perfectly on screen. But then again, if your screen is messed up, you might have a bigger calibration problem than what is normal. EDIT: My x201 doesn't have multitouch, so you should wait and let others chime in regarding multitouch calibration.

Hello,I got a X201 Tablet with the multitouch display a month ago, it's an awesome machine, but recently I noticed a very faint CPU whine noise coming from the upper left of the body, close to the fan. the noise level is comparable to the noise of the fan at mid speed, so it's not terrible, but my problem and maybe same as other people out there is as soon as you discoreved, your brain tunes to it and you can hear it above anything, or I'm going crazy. My question is if this is something normal? the system is under warranty from lenovo, should I send it in, but any chance I will get it back with the same noise. I guess I can live with it if it doesn't become louder, but I don't know really want to do.. Any feedback would be appreciated.Thanks!!

I _just_ bought a new X201 tablet, and am very happy with it, except that the screen color is very yellowish or orangish. Green trees look brown, blue skies look grey. I tried both calibrating through Color Management in the Control Panel and endless adjustments in Intel's Control Center. It's as if there's just very little blue in the screen--a mechanical issue. Mind you, it's crisp and clear; it just makes everything look like a photo taken under incandescent light with a camera set for daylight..  Anyone else?

Answer:Color on X201 tablet

I've never seen that with a brand new machine, but it does tend to happen with IPS screens after a while - i.e. backlight wear.So the question is - do you see this color shift even in the BIOS screen? If so, you'll need to have it fixed under warranty.

Now this worked for me, it may not work for you but i hope it can help some people. I read on a forum elsewhere that for Photoshop you can fix this problem by turning OpenGL rendering off in Preferences->Performance.

Hi all I am having trouble with the internal SIM card messages with the SIM service on my X201 tablet. The SIM itself is working fine and I am able to connect without a glitch. The problem I am having though is my provider in South Africa sends text (SMS) messages with a security pin to my number when I log into the provider's website. Until now the only way I can retrieve these messages is to shut down, remove the SIM, install it into a phone, read the message, shut the phone down, reinsert the SIM in the laptop and boot up. Usually by this time the security pin has changed. Is there any way to access SIM messages and other services directly through the OS or some application to avoid having to shut down repeatedly? Thanks very much in advance. Hoox

Maybe they assume that the user does not work with the notebook and the screen is always at brightness-level 0.BTW: Did you install a fresh windows or did you choose to use the preinstalled one? I've heard that battery life is better with the preinstalled windows.

Some time in the last month, the tablet function of my X201 Tablet PC conked out.  I'm running Windows 7 (32 bit).  Perhaps there was something wrong with some driver update that was installed either through Windows Update or through the Lenovo Thinkvantage stuff.  I never managed to figure out what was wrong.  I tried installing various updates and drivers from both those sources, and from Wacom, without success.  I couldn't find any thread on the internet that discussed exactly this problem or suggested a solution.  It was a frustrating week! I seem to have solved the problem, though.  Through Control Panel -> Uninstall programs I found and uninstalled everything from Wacom, and all of the "Ultranav" driver stuff from Lenovo.  Altogether there were 6 or so things that I uninstalled.  Then I reinstalled Wacom's tablet driver (ISD Tablet, version 7.1.0-8), and then pen's back, and, indeed, working better than it ever has (the alignment calibration has been terrible since I bought the machine).  I haven't reinstalled the Ultranav drivers, and will probably refrain from doing so. I hope this helps the next frustrated Lenovo tablet user.

I have a FRU 08K8205 power adapter that came with my now dead R40. Can I adapt the DC connector to one that will fit my X201 tablet without blowing anything up? If so, where can I find such an adapter? The FRU 08K8205 power adapter says its output is 16V 4.5A. The FRU 42T4119 power adapter that came with my X201 says its output is 20V 3.25A.

The lower right corner of the tablet screen is too sensitive; the pen is "clicking" even if it is not making contact with the actual tablet screen. This makes the tablet pen effectively useless and appears to be hardware error. I was able to reproduce this issue with the factory installed images of Windows 7 and Windows XP, so it does not appear to be a hardware issue. Can I please have RMA instructions for a refund on this system? Charge me restocking fees if you have to will, the system is in brand new condition but is unusable due to the tablet screen issue and the failure of booting cloned XP drives: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/X201-Won-t-Boot-Blinking-Cursor/td-p/271217  Please respond ASAP, thank you.

Hey guys,  I just purcahsed a refurbished X201 Tablet off of NewEgg and I am having problems with it already. Whenever I bring my stylus even close to the screen, the computer immediately blue screens. I have tried uninstalling the drivers, using both Wacom and Lenovo even though they're pretty much the same.  I've tried updating my BIOS, reinstalling a ton of drivers and nothing.  Any ideas? Advice? It's driving me nuts. I love absolutely everything else about it, its lightning fast and works amazing otherwise.

Hi, I'm recently got a X201 and installed Win 7 x64 on it. Basically, everything is working except the 4 buttons on the screen section of the laptop. (The power button works tho). I have installed all the latest drivers on the lenovo website, and still cannot get the buttons working. I believe that this buttons help with the flipping on the screen when using it in touch mode. The touch functionality of the laptop works fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.Derek

So, party kicked off at my house on the bank holiday weekend. Some unidentified twerp decided to enter my office and use my laptop as a urinal. Now it won't switch on. I have an X201 with which I got upgraded warranty support along with the Accidental Damage Warranty. Considering this, I thought it would be quite easy for them to address this issue. But no. This damage is classed as a "biohazard" and as such is not class as accidental damage.  Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful in explaining to the Romanian tech staff that the fact that it was ACCIDENTALLY damaged is immaterial as to whether it is a biohazard or not. Anyway, despite me forking out a fortune for the upgraded warranty, they are refusing to fix it. After much toing and froing, they are still arguing with me that it is a biohazard, despite the fact that nowhere in the t's and c's does it specifically exclude certain liquids or indeed biohazards. It does state that if they cannot repair it, they will replace it. Therefore I have been pushing for this option instead. I am being passed from pillar to post waiting for a response. It is an absolute joke. Does anybody have any advice as to what I should do? I was considering taking these guys to court for costs incurred in getting my laptop repaired elsewhere (which are quite astronomical in comparison to a simple replacement) but any contact details (preferably UK based) would be appreciated. Thanks in advance guys...

Answer:Liquid Damage to X201 Tablet

Wow, that is some awful luck. I keep my home office locked most of the time anyway as I have smaller kids but especially during social events. You just never know. Anyway, sorry to hear you're not getting anywhere with support. Have you tried contacting local service partners? Looks like there's a few in the area. I think if you explain your situation someone should be able to help you, hopefully.

Was hoping someone might be able to offer some suggestions. I was sitting in my office working on my desktop, my X201 Tablet was on. Then I heard a beep - thought it went to sleep. Anyway, just  checked it now and it looks completely dead - no Z LED, no LED on the fingerprint scanner - nothing at all. Power button doesn't work at all, even when I hold it down. It's like it suddenly became a brick. It's out of warranty - just under 2 years since I purchased. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on what I might be able to do before paying to send it in for service? Needless to say, I'm extremely unhappy. One of the reasons I bought a Lenovo was because of their reputation for reliability. This is not good. Not at all.

Answer:X201 Tablet - seems completely dead

try to take off the battery and power adapter, then press on/off buttons ten times in 30 secs interval. After that try to power it on again with ac only and see whether it works. Also, try to take a measurement of the dc end of the power adapter, see whether there is 20 v difference to ensure that the power adapter is working properly.

Answer:Smaller battery for X201 Tablet

Yes, I have that 4-cell battery as well as the 8-cell. The top half of the battery is flush with the back of the PC, and the bottom half sticks out about a millimeter. I also have the 8-cell and can attest that the 4-cell is much smaller and makes the tablet easy to hold and carry.

Windows 7? Control panel, system, look about in the center of the page, it will tell you what your display is capable of, pen, pen and touch, or no pen or touch.

Hi, I currently run a X200 Core 2 Duo P8600.I am thinking about upgrading to a X201 Tablet ( Core i7-640LM Processor, 2.13GHz)However, I am concerned that the improvement in performance may not worth the investment. Is there someone around this forum who owns a X201 Tablet (2.13 Ghz version) and can run the pass mark test ?http://www.cpubenchmark.net/ (ideally, under a Windows 7 64 bit) I know they have one in their database, but I don't trust that database very much since I ran the bench mark on my computer and got a higher result than is reported in the website (1890 CPU benchmark score vs 1610 reported). Thanks, -- Shay

Answer:x201 tablet - what is the front port for?

Hi jkriegel,
 
I think what you are refering to is the 5-in-1 Media Card Reader or 3-in-1 Media Card Reader Slot. (Screenie below)
 

 
The slot reader does not have a cover.

Hello everyone, After a routine maintenance run on my X201 Tablet where I cleaned the insides and reapplied thermal paste (I wondered why one core is 12C warmer than the other) my laptop will not boot, start or even acknowledge that an adapter has been plugged into it. When I finished with my cleaning, I went to start it up to see if the new thermal paste worked. The computer booted up right after I plugged the adapter in, but as I forgot to plug in the HDD, some self-diagnostic text started appearing on the screen. Quickly realizing my error, I didn't read what it said (none of it looked like error messages) and unplugged the laptop. After reassembly, it wouldn't react to anything (no LED indicators of anything), only static electricity keeps building up and kicks me. The only hardware that could have been damaged was the motherboard (cpu?) - this I know, because I had the old motherboard from X200 laying around and after I swapped it out, everything is working as it should. Question 1) Can anyone tell me, what process did I interrupt?Question 1a) Is there a way of restarting it?Question 2) As I did not hear/see any unusual flashes of light, or smells, or charred chips, I still think the hardware should be fine. Am I correct? Is this "just" a case of a bricked laptop?Question 3) How can I get my motherboard up and running again? Thank you for any pointers in my sad, dumb situation.
