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.

Answer: Gobi 4000 Connecting to T-Mobile

Hi there. I have an x220, which module do I need to purchase? I spent close to an hour with Lenovo and couldn't figure it out. Do you know if the Gobi 4000 will work?

This may seem like a stupid question, so forgive me. I am wanting to purchase the x230, and thinking about getting the gobi 4000 card.  However, my questions is this: I have a Verizon Wireless plan with truly unlimited data... one of those that got grandfathered in. Now, can I take the sim card out of my phone, plug it into the gobi card in the x230, and get Internet access? Thanks.

Answer:X230 question regarding the Gobi 4000 mobile broadband cards

Will you get Sierra Wireless mc7750 card (Gobi 4000 for Verizon Wireless, FRU 0A36318) inside of your laptop or install it yourself? If the answer is "yes", my answer for your question is "yes".But as I know Verizon doesn't need sim card for internet access, you just need to activate your modem with plan in carrier' network using Lenovo Mobile Broadband application. Download it from the site.

Question: Gobi 4000 issue

Coworker just bought both of us Gobi 4000 cards. I have a T420 and he has an X220. Both machines boot fine with the cards installed (no white list error), I even got the drivers installed successfully on both. The antenna does not turn on via the software switch. I tried the broadband activation software but it's not recognizing that an installed product. Access Connections kept referring me to use the broadband activation software lol! Any ideas?

I have a number of Thinkpad x131e notebook PCs and need to order a WWAN module for it.  The only supported WWAN mPCI-e card listed is the Gobi 3000 MC8355 model, which is the slower 3G modem.  Has anyone used the GOBI 4000 or 5000 series LTE modems? I've seen posts about Lenovo whitelisting certain hardware, but I can't seem to find that list.  Are there electrical limitations that would prevent Lenovo from whitelisting the LTE modems?  If not, this type of hardware lock would be a deal breaker for any future Thinkpad orders for my company. Hardware is Thinkpad x131e Type 3372 Thanks,Jay

Answer:Gobi 4000 in x131e?

x131e doesn't support Gobi 4000 or 5000 or any other LTE wwan cards officially. Look at the followed file and find out "wireless card" section:http://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/X131e_AMD_FRU_BOM.pdfJust Ericsson h5321gw is another supported wwan card. It's a bit faster then Gobi 3000 but doesn't support US wireless CDMA/EV-DO carriers.

Qualcomm has recently released 4G LTE compatible Gobi 4000 card. Is Lenovo planning to sell the card as an upgrade accessory? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Gobi 4000 at Lenovo

hey mariner,welcome to the forums and indeed Qualcomm did release a 4G compatible card, as whether or not Lenovo will be selling the card is hard to say.as Lenovo will normally run test on the card to ensure compatibility before selling it.

It now looks like Lenovo is now only offering the Gobi 4000 AT&T version withthe new X1 Carbons. Just prior to launch they were listing the Ericson 3G card. Anyone know if we can swap out the AT&T Gobi 4000 one for a Verizon Gobi? How aboutthe laptops that came with the Ericson, can we just replace the WAN card witheither Gobi 4000? Will the Bios not block any of these options? Is the antennasetup the same?

Answer:X1 Carbon NOW WITH GOBI 4000? LTE AT&T

Well this is very odd. The disassembly photos here clearly show it only supports a half height card.I found this page which shows an Ericson card, but has GOBI 4000 listed under physical specs (with the model number for a full-size GOBI 4000).

Answer:Gobi 4000 Compatibility for W520 CTO

Hi, fasdf78
 
I did some research and found this thread that deals with the same question, albeit a different machine. Sadly, the Gobi 4000 is not compatible in any machines not listed here on Lenovo's website, due to it not being on the whitelist in your BIOS. The whitelist is a list of devices that are compatible with your machine. The Gobi 4000 is not part of the whitelist, unfortunately. Also, the antennas for 4G are different than those for 3G found in the Gobi 3000.
 
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news,
Adam

Hi all, I have a t420s and so far I'm happy with it. Recently I purchased a MC7700 card from ebay with lenovo FRU. Everything looks smooth except that I found there is no way to turn on the mobile broadband switch. I believe I have a whitelist-removed bios otherwise it won't boot. The driver downloaded from lenovo website is installed fine, I can see the card working in device manager. I could read the iccid in windows network settings. Everything looks good, but I just can't turn mobile broadband on. I mean, everything is fine, but I am having a hard time fighting with this problem. How can I turn it on? My laptop runs windows 8.1, I heard there is a thinkvantage connectivity tool that might work for windows 7 but not windows 8. I have quite a few files on my laptop and going back to windows 7 is the last option I would like to try. Many thanks!

Are there any Lenovo engineers on the board that have knowledge of the GOBI WWAN chipset? The GOBI website lists the newer T series as machines that support GOBI, but no one at the support line knows anything about GOBI. I need to know if the Verizon UNDP card is actually a GOBI card before I order it, and if it will work with my 2765-T2U. I want to use Sprint here in the states, but I am going to Europe in two weeks and I want to use an HSDPA carrier such as Vodaphone while I'm there. I dont know if I should order the card because I cant seem to confirm anything at all. The phone support people are nice but admit to knowing nothing about it..I've talked to several of them and they told me to come here and find an engineer! Thanks for any help you might provide! Matt

Hi guys,I have a t410s with gobi 2000 and t-mobile sim card with unlimited data plan. Is there any way I can make T-Mobile USA SIM Card to work with ThinkPad Gobi 2000. I followed the topic"Thinkpad + T-Mobile = WORKS!" posted by "LoveIsMe ". I connected with T-MOBILE, but I only can surf t-mobile homepage. Is there any ways I can get rid of this limitation? Thanks.

Answer:Gobi 2000 + T-mobile

You probably need to configure a custom profile in Access Connections to get it working. However, you will not be able to get 3G speeds on T-Mobile with the Gobi 2000 since it does not support T-Mobile's 1700mhz 3G band.

Hi, my company purchased x240s and the GOBI cards separately and of course they purchased the AT&T version and we use Verizon as our carrier.Now here is the thing, even with that branding from the tech specs on the Lenovo shop portal they look exactly the same. When I install the latest drivers for the GOBI card and Lenovo Access Connections I can get it to somewhat work in the beginning and then it stops working. I tried every conceivable way to get it to work all the time but it's a hit or miss until it permanently fails and the sim I use is from an x230 that also has a GOBI card. My question is does it really make a difference if it is branded as AT&T since the GOBI card does work at some point and if it doesn't matter am I doing something wrong?Thanks for any help!

Hi,I am a newbie to this stuff. I cannot get my mobile broadband card to work.I have an X121e which has upgradeable mobile broadband. Foolishly I did not buy this card at time of purchase. I have bought an unlocked Gobi 2000 and installed this and the sim card. I have installed the drivers and the broadband package from lenovo. The Gobi 2000 is shown under ports in device manager (windows 7 64bit) with a com3 allocation.However...in 'access connections' there is no adapter so I cannot set up a mobile broadband profile. Only the lan and wireless card are options. Windows 7 internet connections only gives me wired, wireless and modem options. Searching the internet I think this card needs to be shown as a network adapter.Ideas anyone please?

When I ordered my T410s, I chose the "upgradeable" option.  What does that exactly mean?  Does this mean that I have all the hardware already pre-installed, and I just need a SIM card and a service plan?  I noticed what appears to be a SIM card slot underneath the battery.  Should have thought ahead when I ordered the ThinkPad and had them set it up ready to go from the beginning.  Thanks.

Answer:Integrated Mobile Broadband - Upgradeable vs. Gobi 2000

Upgradable means you have the SIM slot and built-in antenna, but need to insert a WWAN mini PCI adapter like the Gobi 2000. So you have all the hardware except the WWAN adapter. The WWAN adapter is easy to insert and not that expensive to buy so it's no big deal, but if you are going to use mobile broadband you could as well have bought the Gobi 2000 instead of upgradable. You need a SIM card and a plan as well from a mobile network operator in your country. -gan

Hi All!

New to the forum and would sure appreciate any advice on a perplexing problem I'm having installing a Microsoft Wireless Mobile 4000 mouse. Upon attempting to install the new drivers, its detecting conflicting device software already installed that may impair the functionality of the new device software.

When I authorize it to remove the conflicting software, I'm getting an error that says "Uninstallation can't find standard mouse driver i8042prt.sys in windows system directory. So you can't uninstall this software." I do find that file in a number of locations.

Strangely enough, the mouse does the rudimentary stuff but the software isn't out there to allow programming of the programmable buttons.

Any ideas??

Answer:Mobile PC display instead of Intel HD graphics 4000 ??

It's normal, Mobile PC Display means that it's connected to your laptop's LCD, while the other selection available for external monitors.If you only have one display adapter(Intel HD4000) it will always use that display adapter.If you have optimus(integrated intel vga+dedicated nvidia vga) you can change the Prefered graphic processor from nvidia control panel's global settings. For external monitors, i'm not sure whether the external monitor port(hdmi/vga port) can be connected to the dedicated vga or not, it's probably connected to the intel vga also.May be someone else can confirm this, as i've seen many people were having difficulties trying to use the geforce vga through HDMI (they can only gets the intel vga through hdmi) in most lenovo's optimus-based laptops.

Hmmm. Can't believe what you read nowadays anymore. I bought a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 to replace an ailing optical laser mouse that's on its last legs, and on the package it said that one "AA" battery would last for one entire year without replacing. What it meant was, it would have took until the next spring before it's time to replace the battery.

Apparently, the mouse doesn't think like that, it appears, and when I was looking down at it, there was a red warning light indicating that the single battery had already been exhausted from use. Between surfing the web and playing some Team Fortress 2 now and then this is more than just a "mobile" mouse.

Answer:Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 - Low Battery Already?

I have never use that mouse but the first thing I would do is try another battery. Make a note of the date installed and go from their. At the present time I have 4 Microsoft battery powered mice with no problems. Many years ago I did have a Microsoft mouse that eat batteries like a puppy eating pork chops. I just through the dam thing away but you might be able to RMA yours. I have been reading reviews and most people complain about is it gets hot with heavy use.

What does Athlon "64 X2 4000 Dual Core 4000 Processor" mean? I have asystem running at 2.1Ghz and want to buy a motherboard kit to go faster and improve gamability. All the upgrades used to talk about processor speed but now it seems rare to find the spec saying what speed the processor works at. I know they were talking about the speed becomeing difficult to asess in the future but if a game asks for a 2.8 or 3 gig processor how can I identify the right bundle?

Answer:What does Athlon 64 X2 4000 Dual Core 4000 Process

The 4000 bit is the main thing to look at really what they are saying is that it is equivalent to a 4 ghz computer processor, I say equivalent as the processor won't run at that speed it will run slower but because of the way it actually does its work it will be equivalent to a 4 ghz processor.Clear as mud isn't it? Sorry doing my best.The dual core and the x2 tells you it has 2 processors on the one chip so it can run 2 applications at the same time with no loss of speed, if it was a single core and you did the same thing then it would be half the speed as the processor would have to split its processing over the 2 programs. The mention of the 64 is that its optimised for 64 bit windows which doesn't really mean that much as 99 of people do not have 64 bit windows and 64 bit windows has a few differculties with things.Some of the newer games are actually optimised to take advantage of dual core and will run better on a dual core system.Thats roughly it. A 4000 dual core processor is not slow by any means but its rather old and really unless its really, really cheap you should be looking at something a bit faster.

Question: Connecting Mobile

Hey, i have a dku2 cable with a nokia 6220. And i am trying to connect it up to my machine. I installed the driver that came with the cable and then it asks to be restarted.

I checked the driver and the driver wernt even installed to it. I tried to update the driver and no sucess, as it said they wernt a suitable match.How can i force my machine to accept a driver? And how can i open up a installion file open so i can extract the drivers from inside of it?I need help by the end of tonite.CheersRob

am i right in sayin i can put a cable from my pc to my daughters pc to allow her internet connection....
can anybody please give me step by step instructions on how to do this please
thanks in advance gordie
 

Answer:connecting 2 pcs to use with a 3 mobile dongle

You don't specify what OS you are using so here are tutorials for XP and Vista ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) which is what you need to set up -

XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126
XP - http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/xp_ics/
Vista - http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/bfd3bd31-82f0-4b9c-9cde-fb92bc2b14771033.mspx

Your computer is the "host or server" computer and your daughter's computer would be the "client". Also your computer would have to be powered up for your daughter's comp to connect. And yes, you would need to ethernet cable to your daughter's comp for the easiest way to do this.

After installing the software the icon on the task bar shows that the phone is connected but when I try to open the phone in explorer to syncronise it shows the phone is not connected.I have spoken to Sony Ericsson who say the connection is correct and the issue is with Symantec Norton Firewall. However I can not see how I can configure this ? I am contacting Norton but any assistance would be gratefully received.Has anyone had similar problems ?

Hi My laptop is not bluetooth enabled so I purchased one of these mini USB Bluetooth gadgets, but when I plug it into the USB port and the driver software loads up it tells me that the device is a bluetooth radio. When I try to find my bluetooth enabled mobile it cannot find it. I know I purchased the correct thing at PC World but I really don't understand what is going on.It did at first recognise that there was a bluetooth phone but when I tried to marry the two up it would not find the phone.Anybody got any idea's or will I have to purchase a cable to connect the phone to the laptop.I am running windows 7

Answer:Connecting my Bluetooth mobile

Strange to say I just the other day paired a new mobile to my laptop (Vista) using an old Cable and Wireless dongle... and it worked. As always can't remember exact steps but I just let Vista install the dongle and turned bluetooth on the phone on. Clicked the bluetooth system tray icon to find devices and phone was there. Had to enter a pass key into phone that appeared on the screen when picking the phone as item to connect to? (I think it was that way round) to pair the device and not to always ask for permission to connect.Do you have to make your phone discoverable ?

Hi and I'm not technical.
I am trying to restore some pics I took on my Samsung SGH-F480 mobile phone and then deleted. On the phone's own memory, not extension card. There's plenty of data recovery software but I need a drive letter for the phone on my PC or the software can't see it. I can connect the phone to my PC via USB and Samsung PC Studio 3 Phone Explorer sees my PC, but I can't make the PC see the phone. There is no conflict with any other drive letter I think - there is no other USB device attached. If I go into Windows Explorer there is no sign of attached device.
If I go into Windows Explorer/Computer/Manage/Storage/Disk Management I can see C drive, D drive (Hewlett Packard recovery), and E (DVD drive), but no sign of anything else, not even with no drive allocated.
But if I go into Computer Management/Device Management/USB controllers I can see a Samsung USB composite device driver.
Can I somehow make use of the fact that there is a driver there to allocate a drive letter?

Hi,

I get a BSOD "Driver power state failure" whenever I connect my Vodafone ZTE K4201I USB Mobile Internet Dongle. I am using a dell Inspiron 15R laptop with Windows 8.1 64 bit. While the dongle does light up, it does not show as 'detected' and the BSOD pops up within a minute or two after connecting. Usually, when it restarts after the BSOD, there is a message that 'no AMD graphics driver is installed'. If I try to update the USB Mobile Broadband driver without the dongle connected (on WiFi) it says that the best driver is installed.

Also, these days even without connecting the dongle, the laptop takes a long time to boot - there is the starting Dell screen, which then goes blank for a while, then again the Dell screen appears, and only after it the login page (with face recognition / password) appears. In Device manager, the face recognition driver shows as disabled saying that it malfunctioned and has hence been disabled.

Can anyone help?

I have a question on the virgin mobile mifi device. I took my device on a trip with me to CO. I tried to connect at our cottage and was unable to get an internet connection. When I turned on the device it showed as signal strength excellent in my laptop network connection window. I'd go through the activation screens, shut down the device and restart and be back at square one.

What I don't know is: What does signal strength excellent mean in the network connection of a laptop? Does it mean the connection with the mifi device is excellent or does it mean that it is actually getting an excellent signal from the ISP in this case Virgin Mobile? I'm concerned as I know the location is right on the fringe of their coverage area. If I knew whether I was getting a signal or not it sure would make diagnosing easier. I didn't have working cell phone coverage where I was so I was unable to contact Virgin Mobile at the time.

Answer:Trouble Connecting with Virgin Mobile Device

You most likely have no cell coverage for the mifi device thus you have no connection to the Internet. The "excellent" signal strength on the laptop is the signal of the wifi coming from the mifi device that goes to the laptop not the signal strength of the cell signal from a tower to the mifi device.

Hi,

i'm begining to get togeather specs for my new pc, and i'm not sure which processor to get value and performance wise. It's mostly between the single core 64 4000 and the dual core 3800, though if the x2 4000 has somthing special to offer (which im not aware of) i might fork out the extra cash.

What i'd like to know is that does having a dual core processor boast much of an advantage over a single core. The two CPU's are pretty much the same price, but i heard the X2 3800 overclocks really well, so maybe i could get it to 4200 or 4400 on a decent mobo with an ok cooler? If this is true, then the 3800 will definately be my choise.

However, i dont know the overclocking capablilites of the single core 4000, so can anyone give me their opinion on what they think would be the best purchase?

(i would be using my system for pretty intensive gaming)

Also, i'd like your opinion on this cooler; is it a good one for the price, will it let me overclock much and is it worth getting?

http://www.overclock.co.uk/customer/product.php?productid=17124

Thanks
 

Answer:What to get? AMD64 4000, 64 X2 3800 or an X2 4000?

Based on THIS I`d go for the AMD Athlon X2 3800+

If you intend to oc to the max then maybe liquid cooling is the way to go.

Regards Howard

Hi,  I have this Lenovo Ideapad Y510p laptop, running Windows 8.1, which has 3 USB ports (2 USB2.0 and 1 USB3.0 "Always ON USB"). Everything works normal when I connect a HDD or peripheral devices.

Hi all, not sure if this is the right section for mobile midband but I'll give it a shot...

Yesterday my brother dropped out his acer laptop to me to be updated. The ethernet port on the side of it is broken so he cannot go online with it. I have a mobile dongle so I figured I could use that to update his machine which needs a bit of TLC.

First of all let me say I have installed and gone online with this dongle on many other windows7/vista/xp machines without a problem but when I plugged it into his computer the story was different...

The drivers and software install without a hitch but when I try to go online it will not connect. It says "please make sure the device is inserted and settings are correct" The dongle should just be (plug and play) I have tried every USB port in the laptop and every time its the same story.

Also at one stage it asked me for the AP string/password etc but again this made no difference. Then I saw an error code "711" from windows which is due to a stopped telephony service so I started it manually and still no joy.

I noticed a couple of services were stopped including security centre so I had to start them manually so not sure if something like this is stopping the dongle from working.

Sorry for the massive thread but wanted to give whole background incase anyone here has encountered something similar and knows a fix.

Thanks for reading.
 

Answer:Problem connecting mobile midband/broadband dongle to windows7 ultimate

Hi

My bros, laptop Win 7, has a software based on screen icon - shown on screen which is acessed via a hotkey combination, this icon displays a switch between the wired and wireless conx - from wired to wireless - his doesnt start do this automatically.

Alternatively:

Just a thought, have you tried disabling the laptops inbuilt network port?
Perhaps it may default to the only remaining connection, your dongle, but like I said for my brothers unit this doesnt happen..so may not work...?

You should be able to go to the device manager and just right click the network port and select disable. While you are there just verify that the dongles port if its usb or pcmia type are enabled.

Also ensure that wireless connections can be enabled.

btw I am not familiar with win 7 network protocols, so take this with a grain of slat as it were...

Good luck:wave

I'm using the 950 XL on T-Mobile. I thought that if I put in my sim those apps would load but didn't. I can search the store and see the at&t ones, but nothing for T-Mobile. I'm in the US. Thanks for the help.

Answer:Is there a way to get the T-Mobile apps like MyT-Mobile and T-Mobile Tuesdays, etc on the 950 XL?

Question: T400 GOBI

Hi Everyone, I have a T400 (2765-T2U). As of now I have the Ericsson AT&T broadband card installed. I would like to have the GOBI card so I can use Sprint EVDO in the states, and an HSDPA carrier while in Europe.  Does anyone know the part number for the T400 GOBI card? If I install the card will the connection manager allow me to choose Sprint in the states, or say Vodaphone while in Europe? Thanks! Matt

Answer:Qualcomm Gobi 1000 and GPS

You need to install Thinkvantage GPS software, but without phone provider, it will work like a stand-alone GPS (outside with line-of-sight to satellites).

So I got a SSD for my T410 and thought what the hell lets go for Windows 8. All is sweet apart from my Gobi 2000 mobile broadband. I found some beta Windows 8 drivers and after learning Access Connections is not supported on Windows 8, I downloaded and installed the Dependency Package. Now when I launch Lenovo Mobile Broadband Connect I get the message "Mobile Broadband device not found". In Windows 8 under Networks side bar, it just says "Mobile Broadband (Off)". Any ideas?

Answer:Windows 8 Gobi 2000

The "Mobile Broadband (Off)" was probably the give away... I downloaded Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 8 and hit Fn F5 and it's all looking good!

Where can I buy a unlocked GOBI 5000? The only ones I see on Lenovo.com is $200 for either the Verizon or AT&T brands.. I need one that works with T-mobile

Answer:Where to buy a unlocked GOBI 5000?

What region and network are you planing to use internet in? T-Mobile operates in 3 LTE frequency bands in the US - B2, B4, B12 (for B12 the company planned to start operating just in July 2014) and 3 bands in the EU - B3, B7, B20, in depends of the region and license type. But Gobi 5000 (Sierra Wireless em7355) supports only 2 bands of 6 above - B2 and B4.At the same time Sierra Wireless em7345 LTE card (another one card for the new line Lenovo notebooks) supports 5 bands of 6 above, except of B12. So, there are no advantages for em7355 if you are not planning to work in Sprint LTE network and 3g CDMA/EV-DO networks of US carriers.Supported frequency bands isn't a "locking" feature. It's a design, the set of components, filters. Purchase the card you need on shop.lenovo or altarnate resources.

Hi, Anybody have a chance to activate the Gobi 2000 with Sprint, I read somewhere it is possible but no instruction. I can only see AT&T and Verizon for my options. Thanks

Answer:W510 with Gobi 2000

I'm having the exact same problem activating the GOBI 2000 with Sprint.  I'm running Win 7 x64.  The drivers from Lenovo are installed as well as Sprint Smartview for "embedded devices".  I've given sprint the MEID number from tools -> mobile info within smartview and I'm having no luck.  The accepted the number but still no go.  I found on the sprint site where to user the PRL_Upload utility for GOBI 1000 and 2000 devices but it just immediately fails when trying to connect to the device.  Have you had any luck with this??  Any info would be greatly appreciated.

For some reason I cannot get my Gobi 2000 to turn on. GPS works fine with it and Windows has no problem detecting the device, it is also enabled in BIOS.

I think you forgot something, stating your system and Windows OS will help members help you.

Hi, I have just purchased a refurbished X201t that has a Gobi 2000 WWAN installed. How do I set this up?  I assume that I need to install a SIM card but I can't find any information on how to do so. Thanks  Simon.













Solved!

Answer:Setting up Gobi on X201t

If your X201 is WWAN ready there should be a slot for the SIM card behind the battery. Also there should be a slot for the WWAN adapter which i believe should be under the keyboad, but not 100% for sure for the X201. If the computer is WWAN ready there should be two wires for the antenna by the slot for the adapter. Then you need to download and install the driver and that's basically it. The Thinkpads usually got a whitelist in BIOS for these kind of cards so if you buy a Gobi 2000 WWAN card from Lenovo should work fine, but buy it somewhere else might give you a error that says "Unauthorized hardware" during post. I'm not sure if this is the case here, but if you install the card i guess you will find out If you have some problems with these steps please explain what part where you have some questions like finding the SIM slot, installing the card, installing the drivers and so on. -gan

I have several questions about using the Gobi 2000/3000 modems on the X120e: 1) Must I buy the Gobi 3000 from the Lenovo website, or will the Gobi 2000 work on the X120e? Also if I get it from another vendor will it be the same (have the same form factor to fit)? 2) Others have posted that the Gobi 2000 is unlocked (works with carriers around the world), is that the case for the 3000? 3) For installation on the X120e, how accessible is the SIM on the 2000/3000? I may have to switch out the SIM frequently and having to open up the computer to get to it would not be feasible.

Hi baldursgate and welcome to the community,
 
As far as accessibility goes, here's how to get to the slot.
 
I'm not sure about your other questions, except to say that whatever card you put in there should be a Lenovo branded card or you may get an unauthorized card error at bootup.

 Hi everyone, I just bought a X120e (0596CTO). It is mobile broadband upgradable, and so I searched the wireless accessories to find a suitable card. Both the GOBI 2000 and 3000 were listed as compatible. So naturally I bought the 3000 since its the newer version. When I received the machine I did all of the Windows and Lenovo updates. Then I popped the back off and put the GOBI 3000 in there but when I booted up I got an unauthorized part error and that the startup was halted. So I went to the Lenovo driver website and manually downloaded the BIOS update utility and the GOBI 2000/3000 driver utility. The BIOS update said I had the latest BIOS and the GOBI utility didn't install because no wireless card was detected. So I called tech support and they told me first off that the GOBI 3000 is not even listed only the 2000 (wrong!) and then he asks me "Are you sure this machine is broadband upgradable". Yes! It's listed as a perk right on the sales page. Plus where did he think I was shoving the card into (the RAM slot?) :-)  I'm usually nice, but this guy was irritating since he was incredibly slow and essentially accusing me of having mindlessly buying incompatible devices. When he says that there is nothing he can do for me, I tell him that I guess I'll exchange it, but that they should fix the sales webpage. He doesn't believe me! (because the PSREF website has it all listed differently). So I walk him through how it was that I came upon the GOBI... Read more

Hi.I have an issue on several w510's with bluescreen caused by the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 driver/card. I'm running W7 x64I have read the other post here about this, but nothing outlined in those posts resolved the problem for me.I have opened a supportcase with Lenovo in Norway, but they couldn't help. Can someone here help me out? Anders

Answer:W510 Gobi bluescreen

I'm not sure exactly when the bluescreen occur in your case since you didn't include any details, but i can confirm that i have a bluescreen problem with the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 as well. I have all the latest drivers/BIOS from Lenovo and the latest version of access connections. When i switch from a wireless profile to mobile broadband i get a bluescreen. Seems like it happen pretty late when the mobile broadband profile is applied so might be when AC try to turn off the wlan radio. For some reason it doesn't happen if i try right after a reboot. Also it seems like it neither happen if i disable the radio of the wlan adapter before i switch to the mobile broadband profile in AC. I'm running Windows 7 Enterprise x64 on a W510 witht the Q820 CPU. So far i have not found a solution to this problem and i have not tried without AC to see if the problem go away. At the moment i just turn off the wlan radio before switching profiles and seems like that workaround fix the problem. This is not a solution, but a workaround until fixed. -gan

Ok so to start off my Model is T420 ok so this is my second gobi i've Might've ruined due to how sensitive the hardware is - ok so the history goes that i've instsalled windows 8 (iso provided from MS's secretive (idk if it is a secretive onedrive or not)one drive) and upgraded to 8.1 and it instaslled perfect with all drivers onboard from Lenovo System Updater Uitlity and after a fight with bluetooth not shutting down i've decied to go back to OEM system and the first thing i noticed when going to check in device manager(habbit) is Gobi 3000 not installing drivers with a code 10 so the question i ask... Is it possible that the transition from win 8 - 8.1 - back to OEM win 7 did something hardware wise to the gobi? also sorry if i spelled something wrong - that's what happens when you take 5MGx2 melatonin

Answer:Sensitive Gobi 3000? or ???

Ok so I found out that my gobi /3g module might be a windows 8/8.1 onesince the windows 7 version of the driver doesn't install the driver on windows 7 but the windows 8/8.1 version of the driver installs just fine on both windows 7 pro x64 and windows 8/8.1 pro x64and yes I've run the recovery dvd's a few times which is windows 7 pro and the gobi doesn't look to be installed when checking device manager Each of those times -I think someone might be handing out modified gobi 3000's or in short 3g module's to fit in on a certain driver made for another system instead of it's original system (it's what I think am not sure)so in short case closed.

For the past week my Verizon connection won't disconnect.  If you click disconnect in the Windows control panel and in VZ access manager it does not complete the process and stays connected.  No error, just doesn't disconnect. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both the driver and VZ Access Manager.  No change. Interesting, I uninstalled the Lenovo driver and VZ Access Manager.  Then I installed the Lenovo driver.  As soon as the Lenovo driver was installed Verizon was connected and I cannot disconnect. In Windows, under properties, I have selected "Do not automatically connect" and in VZ Access Manager I have selected "NDIS - Manually connect".  Does not have an impact.   It's like the connect switch is forced on and I don't know why.  I am out of ideas and need some of yours.  This is an X201 with Windows 7 and the latest drivers and VZAM version.  It's a domain machine too.   Thoughts? Thanks!
