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: X200 Thinkpad Tablet - Tablet buttons drivers NA???

Hey there Cr0sschex77,

To get some clarification to better direct you, what operating system are you currently using? Additionally are you referring to physical buttons or "buttons" on the touchscreen once at the desktop? Thanks Cr0sschex77!

Answer:x200 tablet & setting Shift to one of the Tablet Buttons

Try checking if the SHIFT key is actually one of the items on the drop down menu in the tablet pc button settings.

Hi I have installed 64bit windows 7 on my machine quite recently in order to utilise the extra ram. When i rotate the screen clockwise to tablet mode, the screen will auto rotate to primary potrait by default and the buttons will work as usual. However, when i swivel my screen anti clockwise to tablet mode, the screen will NEVER auto orientate to primary potrait mode and all the tablet buttons will not work if i rotate the screen ANTI CLOCKWISE. Can anyone help me on this? Thanks alot in advance for the replies

Because I was planning to upgrade my hard drive I immediately also installed Windows 7.Everything turned out fine except 2 things.:The tablet buttons on the bottom of the display don't work. I tried installing and reinstalling the Button driver (Click here for driver I used.) but it will not install properly because the buttons still don't work. I have a feeling I need another extra piece of software but I don't know which.The finger print software will start up after I logged in with my fingerprint.

Does the Fingerprint Reader for the X200 Tablet have a driver for Windows 7?  I tried installing it manually and got an error that says it's only for Windows Vista, and upon using the System Update 4, it does not include the Fingerprint driver either. Also, the Tablet Buttons do not work ever since I switched to W7 either.  I have installed every update I can find through System Update and the site, and those that will not install say they are only for Vista.  The Tablet Buttons are a big issue, they are very useful and very essential to working in Tablet Mode.  I don't care as much about the Fingerprint Reader, I can get over that, but the Tablet Buttons are very useful. Are they working on a driver for them or something, or should I just give up on them?  I really liked using them when I was in Vista. Any information would be great.

All worked fine for about a month.  Now, none of my tablet buttons work.  I don't get any error message.  They simply do nothing.  I've rebooted with no response.  I can't find any place to enable/disable, in case I did that by accident. The only change I can think of that may have coincided was to reinstall the fingerprint software (what came with this didn't work). It does re-orient itself when I rotate the screen into "tablet mode". I am running Windows XP. Any ideas?

Answer:x200 Tablet buttons not working Windows 7

Hey Zebra, I recently had an rtfm moment with this issue.  I had installed and reinstalled the Tablet Button Drivers... or so I thought.   Checkout the readme for the driver.  After you double click the .exe, it looks as if it installs, but all that does is extract the files to a folder on the HD.   Probably here C:\DRIVERS\WIN\TBBTN unless you changed it.  Go there and click setup.exe.... you'll have to reboot when it is done.  HTH

"The x200?s ?touchscreen?, I cannot seem to find any precise details regarding the type of touch screen technology used  in these units. What type of touch technology is used in the x200: Resistive, SAW, Capacitive, Hybrid Capacitive or something else?" I own a x200t but not THAT x200t you are looking for, so i don't know. But i can tell you that when it comes to the digitizer option on a x200t you have basicaly 3 options:1) you only have an active digitizer (wacom made) that can be used with the included stylus.2) you have the wacom digitize + the passive-resistive digitizer. The latter can be used with your finger.3)wacom+passive capacitive multitouch digitizer. The fact is that the first x200t models ha the reistive option only. But the last x200t also implemented the wacom capacitive multitouch one.  "If we were to purchase a lot of between 5-10 brand new units from the USA, is the warranty offered an international  warranty?"From what i know ALL lenvo thinpad tablet (x200t or x201t) are sold ONLY with internationa warranty.

I am the owner of an X200 Tablet (7448-CTO). I purchased this laptop (+ 3 year on-site repair and Thinkpad Protection) for school just over 2 years ago. Long story short,  I am having EXTREMELY bad luck with the screen on this laptop and am curious about what sort of Lemon Policy that Lenovo might have. Pretty much the only problems I've had with this laptop have been related to the screen. (Although I think I did have to get the motherboard replaced once). Anways, I don't remember my exact repair history, but it seems that within the first 1.5 year of owning it I had to have the screen replaced twice. The first time went well. The issue was resolved. I forget what went wrong next, but on that repair the person apparently wasn't very familiar with the convertible tablets because the screen area/hinge didn't seem put together correctly when he was done. After that repair I caved and mailed my laptop to the depot. However, I did wait awhile to make the service call because the laptop was usable and I needed it. By the time I had time to send it in, they decided to replace the screen. However, this time the part wasn't available and I ended up having to wait for qiute a bit. I finally got it escalated but the guy in Atlanta that was supposed to be doing that completely ignored me (never called to update after the initial contact when he said he would and never answered messages).

Hi,

I upgraded to Windows 10 a few days ago, and have been experiencing frequent BSOD over time for different reasons. Attached is the log of the last one I just encountered today (there are also dumps from some of the earlier BSODs). It occurs when I am not by the computer as usual again. This time, my external monitor was plugged in but not switched on as an extended monitor. Before this one, the BSOD were usually coded as CRITICAL PROCESS DIED or SERVICE error or similar for different reasons. But most of them occur when there is no activity on the computer for a while. My external Dell monitor was usually plugged in as the extended monitor. Those BSOD also caused some hard driver errors which I have fixed yesterday. It also cannot automatically login despite I have set it up.

Basic info on my computer: Lenovo Thinkpad X200 tablet, with Mobile Intel 4 Series chipset of graphics card. From my device manager, I didn't see any obvious problem with drivers so far. Intel does not provide a proper graphics driver for WIndows 10, but I want to use OpenGL.

Hopefully you can help me figure out what's the problem and how to fix it. Thanks.

Answer:Frequent BSOD on Thinkpad X200 tablet with two screens

Just got another BSOD while I left my office for a while. Attached is the dump file.

PS: I tried to read the dump file by installing windows debugging tools, but I got the "win32 error 0n193" error. I tried to use the x86 windbg.exe, no success. If anyone can point out how to read the dump file by myself if analyzing the dump file will take a while, I would appreciate it!

Dear community, I found my screen starts flickering not long after I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my thinkpad x200 tablet. It happens especially when I have an external monitor connected to the laptop and when I maximize a Microsoft Edge brower on screen. Scrolling the mouse will trigger the lines on a page flickering back and forth or partially disappeared. This is really annoying when I want to scroll down a little bit to find some useful information. I have tried to use the "sfc /scannow" command to identify potential problems and to reinstall compatible Thinkpad graphics and video drivers, but no luck. I have also tried other solutions that I can find online (like disabling the issue reporting service), yet still this problem persists. I contacted Microsoft for their assistance, and they suggest me to ask the manufacture to solve this problem. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks,Qi

For the past 3 weeks my thinkpad table x200 has not been working. Thanks to the great lenovo/ibm support. I am looking for help. I called the support and explained the problem, I was encountering with my thinkpad tablet. They told me, I have to reinstall vista. So they sent me the vista/lenovo install disk. Very fast (3 weeks later, so yesterday) I finally get the dvds (3 in total). But how do I install vista without a dvdplayer. Unfortunately,I don't have one with my machine. I supposed, they knew what they were doing at Lenovo.  Does anyone has a way to do it? Should I place it on an external hardrive, an usb key? Thank you for any help you can give me! If I cann't find a way to do it, I will call back the lenovo/support... gosh at the end of the week, it will be 4 weeks..  Bye Hernan

Hey all, I have a weird problem.  My tablet buttons have stopped working-- but only in tablet mode.  That is, I can't rotate, or bring up the tablet shortcuts, or move around the screen in tablet mode.  Also autorotate doesn't work.  But if I switch out of tablet mode, I can do all of these things just fine (except for autorotate). Also, when I switch into tablet mode the screen doesnt rotate or anything, but when I switch out of tablet mode the screen rotates to the direction I defined in the settings (sometimes.. to be honest it seems pretty random to me).  I am running 32 bit vista w/ 4 gb ram on an x61 tablet with the latest drivers.  I have uninstalled the tablet button drivers and the lenovo system interface and reinstalled them already.. I have the latest APS. Help me out here.. I have no idea why this isn't working!  Don't make me have to reinstall vista to get the buttons working.. Tha'ts ridiculous!!  Arrrgh.

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 recently did a fresh install of win 7 64-bit on my thinkpad x200 tabletpc, updated all the usual drivers and software from lenovo and windows update. Whenever I rotate my display into tablet mode, I always get the message 'USB Device Not Recognized' in the system tray, windows then trys to find and install device drivers for it but is unsuccessful every time. I have tried to find device drivers to fix this without any success. In device manager, I see the culprit highlighted under Universal Serial Bus Controllers with a yellow exclamation mark sign beside 'Unknown Device' with a location of Port_#001.Hub_#002. I have tried uninstalling and and reinstalling this, still no success. I have tried to disable it merely to stop the annoying prompt from the system tray yet it still comes back and warns me of the same problem. Has anybody else experienced this ? Does anybody have any suggestion for solving the problem ?I'm guessing it is related to the display driver, I will try installing/reinstalling another version of that to see if that fixes it. I'm starting to doubt the integrity of this tablet, I've begun to notice a lot more driver and USB conflicts lately..

So I upgraded to Windows 10, everything works out, but I noticed from Matlab that the OpenGL support is only on the version of 1.1. I further pocked around , and found the graphics accelerator driver is from Microsoft and has some known issues (from Matlab). Then I downloaded the Intel Driver Update Utility to update the graphics driver, but nothing can be found there. Back to Windows 7, the Intel Driver works fine for me and gave OpenGL ~2.2 support. Does anyone knows better drivers in Windows 10 than the default Microsoft one? Thanks in advance.

Hey guys. I don't know what happened to my display, but once I reinstalled Windows 10, the display (under Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Pen and Touch -> Display tab -> Display Options -> Display drop-down box) only shows that I have a mobile pc display. But I know that is not correct. And what's worse is that the tablet buttons are not installed in my system. Those two exact problems might be why only the right side of my touch screen is working. I already have the correct driver for my touchscreen laptop so I'm CERTAIN that's not the problem. Can someone (anyone!) help me with solving the first problem and redirect me toward the tablet buttons I need for my Lenovo B50-30 Touch in order to solve the second? I want my full functionality back on my laptop. Thank you very much. Sincerely,organanon

The learning curve on this machine is steep if you want to take advantage of all the input options but I've put the time in and I'm starting to love it. There is one thing I wish Lenovo would address though. I see plenty of ThinkPad users with this problem going back to at least 2008, and no solutions forthcoming. The manual states: "On the display bezel near the screen is a row of buttons with which you can control your computer in the tablet mode, without the use of the keyboard."By default the buttons are set to turn your computer off, press CTRL+ALT+DEL, or rotate the screen 90 degrees. The manual goes on to describe how you can customize these buttons via the Tablet Shorcut Menu, which is accessed via Start > Programs > Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools > Tablet Utility.If you open this program you get a dialog box titled "Auto Screen Rotation Settings." This dialog controls what orientation the screen should switch to when you convert into tablet. So it really doesn't have anything to do with the buttons.The only dialog that allows any assignment of the tablet buttons is Windows Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings. Here the Buttons tab is supposed to list the actual buttons on the front panel and let you assign them, but the only one shown is the Screen Rotation button. This works fine, you can set the button's function for a single press and a long press. (Too bad it's not possible to use Shift by itself, but that is as-designed by MS.)It should go without sayi...

hi guys i really want to try a windows 8 tablet and i plan to buy it either by the end of this month or by next January. I am confused on what to pick though
First of all, the reason why I want a windows 8 tablet IS because i like the interface. but more importantly, i need metatrader and cTrader in legacy app as im a full time forex trader. I have metatrader in my iphone but you cant seriously compare that with the windows version (no tabbing, no lines drawing, no fibonacci, etc.). cTrader doesnt even exist there.
im looking to replace my macbook pro (which btw i also installed windows 8 on it through parallels virtual desktop) with a windows 8 tablet to support my trading while im outside
So basically I dont need a super i7 tablet or something. However, im curious to know how windows 8 atom tablets perform. I have seen enough reviews and some people says atom tablets perform badly in legacy apps. Question is, how bad is that bad? Does it lag so bad even though i dont need to run heavy apps like adobe? I only need to run these trading apps which btw are very light. You can compare them with MS paint i believe, just with constant connection.
would it do well in atom tablets? I dont want lags when i switch from win8 native apps to metatrader and cTrader.
next question - how does windows 8 tablet on-screen keyboard work with legacy apps? Would i have special gesture to show up the on-screen keyboard or it automatically appears when i touch the screen? I personally dont believe ... Read more

Hi there, I hope someone can answer me a little querstion. I recently bought a x61 tablet and am really happy with it. Although I could be much happier If someone could help me with the following problem. I use Photoshop often, very often and for that reason I use the shift key a lot. In order for me to use it in tablet mode however I always have ot open the lid enough for my hand. I tried to map the tablet pc buttons in the control panel but it doesn't let me. I can map ctrl and alt and all of those but not shift.Is there some secret way to map the shift key? Or do I have to use some loophole and remap one of my normal keys. I hope someone can help me or at least tell me there is no way to do it. It would be greatly appretiated. Thanks in advance Pix (Short for Phoenix )

Answer:x61 tablet - How to map Shift key to tablet buttons?

I don't really have a direct solution for this since I want to customize them as Ctrl, Shift, all kind of this as well. However, there is a workaround that I found it's really good. What you have to have is "Mouse"  wired or wireless doesn't matter. Though I do recommend you to use wireless and Logitech as a brand. The reason why I recommend Logitech is because they have real nice SetPoint program which allows you to customize every buttons on your mouse. Then just map one of them as "shift" It works perfectly.. One hand with pen and another on mouse. I think Razer and Microsoft are another brand I know which have this feature in their software.

Hi,. the particular model of my x200 is 7453-FJ9. I bought it from ebay and the seller claimed is was multi-touch. After checking on the Levono support page where you identify the machine features through the model # above, it does not mention anything about being touch capable let alone multitouch. However, since I installed a new copy of windows 7 pro 64-bit on a new hdd, after installing all of the automated lenovo and windows updates, I checked the system properties and it states 'Pen and Single Touch Input Available' as shown in my system properties screen below.
 
Link to picture
 
I have tried to use the single touch input but it does not seem to be working. I have tried calibrating touch input though the screen calibration and it has not worked. I have looked at the HCI devices in the device manager and it shows 'Wacom Penabled MiniDriver','Bluetooth Remote Control', 'HID Compliant Consumer Control Device' and several repeated entries of 'HID-compliant device' but nothing about touch input ! 
 
I don't understand what is going on, do you think this tablet has touch input available ? Should I try install the touch driver on the lenovo website ? the wacom website ? or am i just wasting my time thinking it has touch input since it is not mentioned on the 7453-FJ9 lenovo support page (that I can see). Any advice on this would be kindly appreciated..

I have been recently getting a lot of BSOD on my Thinkpad "x200" tablet. It may be caused by the fact that I am using a refurbished x201 tablet motherboard with rest of the components from a dead x200 tablet. However, it was working perfectly before I cleaned installed it on last week and I had the Frankenpad working since spring break. I don't know if it started before or after I installed 8gbs of PNY ddr3 ram. I believe it happened after I corrected a Machine code error 2200 on my laptop (lack of serial and model number in bios) and added a Intel 6300 wireless card.

Details:
? 64 bit
? clean installed to Windows 7 Professional upgrade (via usb, used ISO from digital river and made the usb bootable using Universal USB Installer from pendrivelinux.com)
? Age of laptop: unknown, motherboard was a refurbished product I got during Spring break.
? Current OS installed is 4 days old.

The one crash included was caused by a memory exception probably by an unknown driver

Since you added ram recently I would run Memtest

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

I wanted to give my impressions of the Lenovo TPT2. First off, the model I have is the 3679-27U, this means that it has the digitizer pen, windows 8 pro, no NFC, no 3G/4G antenna (though there is a slot for a SIM card). Let me also be frank about my biases concerning tablets. I am not a voracious media consumer. If Im going to watch a movie or TV program I prefer to do so with a large screen TV in the comfort of my living room. As far as checking email, messaging, twitter, and facebook that is why I have a smartphone. Why do I need another piece of electronic equipment that does the exact same thing as my smartphone? In my opinion iPADs and Android tablets are really only good for media consumption, they give you a slightly larger screen to run the same apps that your phone runs. If Im going to buy a tablet it has to provide some functionality that my phone or laptop cannot, otherwise it is a waste of money. Therefore, a tablet had to be able to run productivity programs: MS Office, Photoshop, Illustrator, GB-Stats, etc That meant a tablet using either the Atom processor or a Core processor (i3, i5). This left out not only Apple and Android but also any tablets running Windows 8 RT. Obviously one the major advantages of a tablet is its size and portability. My laptop is a comfortable size and fairly easy to carry around, so what advantage would a tablet give me. The answer is battery life. In order to be practical I would need a laptop with a significantly longer run time tha... Read more

Answer:The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2: Everything a tablet should be

Nice review. I have had my TPT2 for a little over a month now. I have used it extensively as my only device away from the office and have been able to do so without adjusting my computing needs too much. The only drawback that I have had is an under-powered USB port where i am unable to attach my external hard drive. Anything that I knew I was going to need for the day or trip I load onto a USB stick and problem averted.
Edit: I suppose I should mention that my usage is not too intense in terms of productivity. My programs of choice are typically the Microsoft Office package. I do a lot with excel, word, and power point and so far, I haven't run into any issues. I'm in the process of getting a new monitor for home and i'll have a better idea what it's like running a multiple monitor setup from the TPT2 and mini HDMI to HDMI connection. At this point I have a BT keyboard and Mouse which I have been using for the past few days with no issues (except when the battery is close to dying in the keyboard and it behaves as if it is possessed).
I might be one of the lucky ones but haven't had any issues with the wifi signal, sleep issues others have experienced, etc. Outside of the USB and mini HDMI to VGA issues, I'm still completely satisfied. If Wacom could update the drivers to enhance the accuracy of pen input, then I'd be completely satisfied given my particular usage patterns.

Which OS are you using on the X200t? There is the recovery partition on the hdd, which allows you to recover the system to the factory condition (which reinstalls the OS + driver), you can burn the recovery media from windows provided you have the usb dvd/cd burner or the ultrabase with the ultrabay dvd/cd burner.

What I am curious about is if there is any intention to replace the VGA port with a digital video interface such as HDMI as well as if there are any plans for a touch pad mouse. I'd hate to buy now just to have the VGA port replaced with HDMI next month. Also, I keep coming across all the different model numbers. Is there any good reference as far as the model numbers. I saw a posting here from last year with similar questions as mine and thought to get it updated.Any advisement on planned upgrades to the X200 in the near term by Lenovo would be appreciated and help me determine when to pull the trigger. Thanks

I've got an x200 tablet that doesn't do so well as a tablet.I've gotten everything from the dreaded blue screen when the pen is touched to it,  to it being totally unresponsive to pen input. Everything but the tablet issue seems to work fine. Hasn't been dropped, smashed or had any liquids poured on it. Also has (had?) an obnoxious amount of antivirus/spyware/ect. software.Downloaded every driver, went back to several restore points and even took it all the way back to its out of the box state with recovery disks.Took it into the tech/repair center at my university. They had it for three weeks and didn't know what to do with it either...It's still under warranty, but even if it's not somehow covered I'd much rather pay repair costs than buy a new computer.So what the heck do I do with it now? Send it back to the company? (Really resisting the urge to set it on fire.)

Answer:x200 not being much of a tablet

Which O/S are you running?   I have an X200T (7448-CTO) and, after about 1.5 years under Vista, it started to develop severe flakiness (e.g. frequent IE and Office app crashes) although the tablet functionality was still working OK.  I finally decided to bite the bullet and  install Windows 7 fresh (not an upgrade over Vista).  The process that Win7 uses is interesting in that it places the previous (Vista) Windows directory in something called Windows.old.   It does not reformat the drive nor does it delete any other directories on C:/.  That process worked great for me (NB was/is virus free) although, in your case, I wonder if it wouldn't be smarter to relocate all of your documents and settings (e.g. favorites, contacts) to another storage medium and, quite literally, reformat the entire hard drive before installing a new O/S.  After Win7 has completed, install the Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox and it will perform all of the driver upgrades which, in my case, went near flawlessly.   All of my peripheral worked right away including the tablet functionality.  I did have to recalibrate the pen/tablet and work through the handwriting recognition training, but those tasks are only tedious, not difficult.  The only small issue I had, initially, was a SmartAudio driver error which, somehow, fixed itself.    I know that some people have reported issues with Win7/Thinkpad compatibility, but I can only report a comp...

I'm looking to buy an X200 tablet for school this fall, but I'm curious about the Trusted Platform Module (TPM).  I'm not a big fan of having TPM on my personal use equipment, thought I do see the advantages in a managed IT infrastructure.  According to the maintenance manual there are motherboards available both with and without the "security chip"/TPM feature, but purchasing one separately is a joke (US$1,400 or more) considering the cost of the base unit itself.  When customizing a unit on the Lenovo store there is no option for purchasing without a TPM.  The tacover.pmd document lists the TPM as being integrated into the ICH9M chip, which is the reason for needing a whole separate motherboard to get a unit without a TPM. Long story short, is it possible to have Lenovo build me a unit with a non-TPM motherboard? Thanks in advance.

Answer:X200 tablet available without TPM?

you can switch off the feature in the BIOS, it would probably cost the same regardless.... but unless you have a large order of some sort, these sort of things are not negotiable on a single build basis.

I'm in the market for a new notebook, and I've really become enamored with the X200 tablet. Well, actually it was the X301 that first caught my eye, but it's just not fully-featured enough for me. Too bad, as I really liked the weight and the WXGA+ on a 13.3" display. Anyway, I'm a Windows applications developer, and I'm trying to determine the X200 tablet's suitability for my needs. As a programmer, I can always make use of additional display resolution, but I've simulated some WXGA screenshots on a 12.1" display, and I'm thinking it could work for me. I'd appreciate it if others could chime in here with what they use their own X200 tablet for on a regular basis and how well it performs and displays those tasks. Thanks. 

Answer:What do you use your X200 tablet for?

Hi Rich, I use my X200 Tablet for everything and cannot say enough good things about it. I wear many hats right now Director of IT, Student, and believe or not I take it to church. I take my tablet everywhere! Currently I'm taken a Marketing class and DB design class and use it for notes and for MS Access running on windows 7 BETA. I have owned the all the X series tablets since the x41 which still run. Some of the problems I run into with DB design is the smaller screen but really it is not a huge factor because I'm in class when I'm at work I use the dock with 24" widescreen. I take my tablet to meetings, give presentations, and use it in place on my desktop. The only thing I would caution against is the process power for your type of development. For example it does not encode video as fast as a desktop but it can do it better than other notebooks in it's class. If you need speed and screen size try the W700 series with WACOM digitizer pad.  What I like most about the X series tablets is it's lightweight portability, performance, wireless options, and durability. I have download 50 eBooks, several text books, and read the electronic versions of eweek and love the annotate on them. If fact my wife makes fun me when I take it to the bathroom for reading materials. I can say that the tablet has changed the way I function in daily life.

Hello,  I was really looking forward buying the X200 tablet. As I can remember correctly the X200 tablet launched start of October in the US and there were no information at all, when this machine would be arrive in the UK. Then this or last week you can find the X200 tablet not on the UK-Lenovo-WebPage... At first I was happy... but then I realize that you cannot customize the machine like the one in the US. You cannot choose the HDD (e.g. the SSD), you cannot chose the main memory,  etc. which is really sad.  The main points are here that I cannot choose the internal webcam and the internal mobile network adapter. Without these gadgets I will definitly not buy this machine. What is the reason for all this???? I am really disappointed... Is it possible to buy the X200 tablet (with the configuration YOU like) in the USA? Flights are not so expensive! Or can you even order it in the US and they send it to you (I am in the UK right now)? I really like Lenovo, but the information policy in general and this issue now with the X200 tablet let me consider my opinion... regards tk

Hello,I recently purchased a X200 Tablet with Windows 7 installed, and I have some queries about some possible problems:  1. I find that when I use my digitizer pen, it becomes inaccurate quite quickly. Sometimes it can become annoying to use after and hour, or after the system is resumed from sleep or hibernation (or when restarted). This means I have to calibrate the pen around 2 to 4 times a day. However, this is not a problem when touching the screen with the finger.  2. The tip of the digitizer pen can move sideward (and slightly in and out, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is how the pen works) and although it doesn't pose a problem (other than possibly causing the problem in the 1st point?), I am wondering whether this is normal. 3. When swiveling the screen round in tablet mode, the screen clicks into place, but is not held there very firmly, i.e. I can press the screen down till it touches the keyboard, and it would bounce back up again. Again, I'm wondering whether this is normal. I'd like to point out that this is my first tablet pc, so, to put it bluntly, I have no idea if I should be worried about these things. I'm also probably a bit paranoid, as these things don't come cheap. Excuse me if these questions may seem a little trivial, but I haven't had any luck finding any answers to them

Question: X200 Tablet sound

Hi, My X200 Tablet's sound controll is very poor. When adjusting volume to 0, the sound is 0. But if I turn up the volum to 1, the descible level is rather high - almost jumping to a medium level of my X60 Tablet. From volume level 1 and further up to 25 the adjustment is more or less linear. This is really anoying when I want to use my computer when travelling, putting on some soft background music or other things, as there is no level that is equal to a low level volume. To get the same level of sound when having the volume adjusted to 1, that I have on my X60 Tablet, or other computers for the sake, I have to use the program interal volume control to adjust the volume as well. For watching a movie in VLC (www.videolan.org) at the same sound level "1" as for the X60 Tablet, I have to turn the X200 Tablet's volume level to 1, and the the internal volume control in VLC to 5%, instead of just leaving it at 100% as it is on the X60 Tablet. I tried to adjust the volume with the ThinkVantage buttons, the windows volume from both in the tray window and from control panel. Anyone got a clue where the problem is, and what I am doing wrong? ThinkVantage System Update should be up to date with all drivers installed I think. Best regards,OAB

Answer:X200 Tablet sound

I have now installed Windows 7 on my X200 Tablet, and after installing Windows 7 the sound issue was automatically solved. Why this was a problem on XP, I never spent enough resources to find out and remains a mystery, but it leads me to think it was problems with software / drive incompatability. It is nice to have a normal working computer, having the same or better stability as Windows XP, with the same features and more than Vista. So for you that might encounter the same problem, not finding a solution for XP, I can recommed get Windows 7 Ultimate. Br OA

Hi I am searching for an 8-cell or 9-cell battery for my x200 tablet -7448  at lenovo's accessory site.What suprises me is that the site lists battery 43R9255 (9-cell) as compatible, even though it operates at 10.8V.The original battery (4-cell) operates at 14.4 V. Is this corect? Shouldn't the voltage be 14.4V in order to be compatible? Is there a reliable link at lenovo that lists compatible battery models for my system? Thanks.  

Answer:Appropriate battery for my x200 tablet

either 4 cells or 8 cells battery will work in the x200t, the 9 cells one is for the x200 and x200s.

Question: x200 tablet BSOD

Every day, at least once, if not 2-3 times, my tablet blue screens with "Stop: 0x000000F4" I have not installed new software or hardware. The tablet is completely up to date according to Lenovo system update and Windows update (Vista 32 bit SP 2).  Since I purchased it in March it has been freezing on me and I have had to hard reboot at least a few times a week. Now I get the blue screens and it is making me want to throw my computer against a wall and go purchase a Macbook Pro.  Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is?

Answer:x200 tablet BSOD

Could be a couple of items: 1) memory, 2) hard drive, 3) motherboardFor 1), I'd suggest getting a copy of memtest86+ from here: http://www.memtest.org/#downiso Create the boot media and let the program run for at least three complete passes.For 2), I would get a copy of PC Doctor for DOS from here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-69537 and run the Fixed Disk diagnostics. I have not personally used this version of PC Doctor but I have run the one for T4x, T2x, A3x and X2x systems and they all have a diagnostic for checking the hard drive.For 3), use the same PC Doctor for DOS diagnostic and run the Systemboard and CPU tests to verify your motherboard.

I recently bought a x200t from ebay and just finished installing windows 7 and all the drivers using thinkvantage system update. The two problems I am having are: The display gets skrewed up from time to time. Here is a screenshot to show what's happening.The second problem is with the pen. My model only supports the pen input. I installed sketchbook pro, but I can't get the pressure sensitivity to work. I've searched a lot for this and have found a few old posts. But, what is currently the best solution to this problem?

Answer:Two questions about the x200 tablet

To diagnose the display skrewed issue, I would suggest you to please update the Bios of your notebook from the below mentioned web link.http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/7wuj44us.exe
 
Regarding the sketchbook pro software, It might be compatibilty issue with digitizer driver. Kindly uninstall it and check it works fine.

Hi, I bought my Lenovo X200 Tablet recently in the US as a WWAN ready laptop. I now moved to the UK and I want to start using mobile broadband. I understand I need to order a 3G mini-card to actually allow WWAN.However, before I order this part, I have a few questions: - Does the card work with XP as well (since it only gives Vista as supported system)?- How does the GPS feature in this laptop work: is the receiver on the WWAN card, or does it need WWAN (e.g. through an external dongle modem) to be accesible? (this is one of the cool features I really would like to use)- Does the card work with any SIM or only with Vodafone?- What is the maximum speed supported? 7.2 MBit? Thanks very much in advance, Floris 

Answer:X200 Tablet and WWAN

Hi, I can answer a little about the card/GPS.  You do have a sim (or you should) and if you pull out the battery you will see it on the left.  You also should have had a little plastic card that contain the sim included with your order. The webpage for the wireless WAN  says that its also compatible with XP and at the bottom of the page it says world wide.  You will have to verify/try this.  Be sure to have the other programs installed as well for the card.  Now I did go to this webpage and tried this driver but nothing change.  It doesn't say specifically for the tablet but  again nothing changed.  The gps is internal (I don't have to attach anything to get it to work.  The program is ultra basic; there are no option or features to change except is the application that takes your coordinates and displays your location. The default on mine is Google maps. Be aware that you cannot have the GPS Enabler getting satellite data and be online.  The card  turns off the wireless and turns on the WAN.   I'm not sure about the last questions you asked but maybe somebody will fill it in. Update:  From what I have heard you should be able to use any sim, though I haven't tried with mine.  Anfrom the datasheet on the WAN card it says 7.2 MBit DL / 2.0MBit UL.Message Edited by MB on 02-19-2009 09:23 PM

Question: X200 Tablet boot

Hello, I have a Thinkpad X200 Tablet running windows 7. When I trun it on it takes about 20-30 mins to boot up. After booting up it work just fine no problems at all. So, I want to know what is causing this problem, is it a hrdware issue of a software issue. Thanks in advance, AbuFares

Answer:X200 Tablet boot

This may not be your issue, but there is a documented problem with the X200T of a "slow boot" (60-90 sec) when started with the lid closed (external monitor/keyboard attached). The problem was recently resolved with a bios update (3.14-1.06). However, the delay was not 20-30 mins. Until the bios were updated, the work-around was to open the lid, which kick-started the boot process. Suggest checking to ensure you have most current bios/drivers. ~ Ken

My computer is no more than two months old, and last night the CPU fan (on the left side of the computer just next to the power adapter port) started making a very loud, grating noise. I shut the laptop down for the night, and this morning when I turned it on I received a "Fan error" message, and the computer proceeded to shut off immediately. Thinking that there might be dust obstructing the fan (after two months this was highly unlikely, but there was a chance), so I used "Dust-off" and blew it into the heat sync. The fan spun with some noise, no dust came out of the sync, but when I tried turning the computer on immediately afterward, it worked. When Windows booted up, the fan started accelerating and stared making the very loud grating noise again, and then after about 30 seconds stopped spinning altogether. I do not feel any heat or air coming out of the heat sync. I am extremely worried, as I have to leave for China on June 16th and do not have time to send this in to the depot for repair. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance,Jim

Answer:x200 Tablet CPU Fan Failure

Hi jpearse, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
 
Sorry to hear about the odd behavior of your X200 fan.
 
It's possible there is something in the fan. To get better access, you can remove the keyboard (movie of that here).
 
There's a very good chance a depot repair will be done before you leave, if you start process right away.
 
You could also try a local warranty service provider.
 
I would opt for the depot repair, because I've had good experience with it (almost always returned the same week), and if it was important, I'd make sure I had a plan B.

I am looking to order an x200 Tablet and I am trying to balance my desire to get it NOW with the uncertainty of knowing what's around the corner in the world of computing, particularly in Lenovo world. I know that there is ALWAYS something bigger (smaller?), better, and/or faster coming in the world of laptops but there are times when computing makes huge leaps (case in point: I bought a T42p just weeks before the T60 line came out with Core 2 Duo processors and I was stuck with a machine that could not run 64-bit).Relatively minor things like more RAM, thinner design, brighter screens, etc. is there something HUGE that's expected or rumored to be coming soon from Lenovo, especially in the tablet line?Also, what tends to be the cheapest place to buy Lenovo laptops? It certainly isn't lenovo.com because the same configured x200 tablet there was over $1,050 more there than at bestbuyforbusiness.com and various other resellers.Thanks!

Answer:advice on when to buy x200 tablet

Well, early T60s can't run 64-bit OS either unless you change the CPU which calls for a revision 3 motherboard...so you haven't done that bad with T42p back in the day... Given the current market situation, the fact that X200T is still a pretty new model and changes in Lenovo's leadership and priorities that are likely to shift, I believe that it's a fairly safe bet to say that X200T will remain largely unchanged for quite a while. As for where to shop for one, try Lenovo's outlet or eBay... Hope this helps.

I recently purchased a brand new x200 tablet.  Soon after it arrived, one of the USB ports failed (front, right).  I sent it back for repairs and was told they changed out the entire motherboard to resove the issue.  When I received my computer, I found that the port was working fine. Now, two weeks later, the exact same USB port has failed again.  I called Lenovo and was told they would have to change the motherboard again. I have owned many, many laptops previously (including Thinkpads) without any issues.  I must say, it is quite aggravating to have to always send my computer in for repair, as it means I have to transfer all my data and programs to another computer to use, then transfer it back again.   And what concerns me the most is that their seems to be no solution to this USB port issue.  Should I just leave it be and use the computer minus one USB port?

I have a client that uses SCCM '07 to deploy OS images to computers over the network. This seems to work great for the vast majority of systems that they have. Here's a quick run down of the problem: Computer information imported into SCCMDrivers imported into SCCM, NIC and HDD drivers added to boot image Task Sequence created and advertised to collection for OS deploymentPXE boot from the tablet works fine and even loads the WinPE imageRight at the point when the Task Sequences should show up, the system reboots automatically I suspect that there is a problem with the drivers being used in the boot image. Currently, they are using Intel(R) ESB2 SATA AHCI Controller drivers, version 8.2.4.1007 which is applicable to the Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller in use by the X200 Tablet. Two other versions (8.2.4.1005 and 8.2.4.1001) have also been tried without success. They will be purchasing more X200s very soon and need to have this problem solved quickly. Any thoughts?  

Answer:X200 Tablet, OSD in SCCM '07

I had a similar issue yesterday.  This is due to a network driver needed in the boot image in addition to a Driver Package.  If you put your boot image into debug mode right now you will see that at about that time the device reboots the NIC flakes out.  Which is weird because it seems to have the right stuff to get that far.  But I imported the newest driver associated with the x200 from Lenovo and updated my x86 boot image and it worked great.

Question: x200 tablet memory

I have 2GB memory in my x200 tablet now. Will it work if I put another 1 GB memory inside? Or it has to work in pairs, like 2 X 2GB? 

Answer:x200 tablet memory

The memory doesn't have to be paired, matched, same manufacturer, or identical. It has to be compatible with the hardware used. In other words, it has to be 204-pin PC3-8500 DDR3 memory modules. If you are currently using 2 x 1GB modules, you will need to purchase a 2GB module to have a total of 3GB. I would suggest you check to see what configuration you have. Either 1 x 2GB module or 2 x 1GB modules. You can check this with software [CPU-Z] or by physically removing the panel and verifying the configuration.  Note: If checking with CPU-Z, download and run the utility. Click the "SPD" tab. Click the drop-down box labeled "Slot #1". The details should show wether it's a 1GB module or a 2GB module. If it's a 1GB module, select "Slot #2", and it should show you that it contains another 1GB module. Hope this helps.

I have a Lenovo X200 Tablet with a 128-gigabyte SSD. So far, it's wonderfully fast and long on battery life, so "yay." How do I keep it this way, though? I usually use System Mechanic, but its support doesn't say a thing about "SSD," "Solid state disk" or "solid state drive." That doesn't make me sanguine, so my question is: Is there such a thing as disk defragmentation with an SSD? If so, what do I do about it? It strikes me that tools meant for magnetic media could wreak all kinds of havoc.

Answer:X200 Tablet SSD maintenance

If you ask me, I would say disk defragment help boost performance especially when reading and writing large files-- and what Lenovo recommends is defragging by its tool--you may read @inside the box, Lenovo's blog for some interesting aspect. I don't think tool matters. They all do the same basically, but you should not defrag that often. However, If it comes with like 3-year warranty,  you don't have to care about that =) just backup often. If it breaks one day, just ask for replacement!

As GUI designers, the X200 tablet's ability to convert to a touch panel is a wonderful tool during client design and collaboration meetings. End users can experience and comment on GUI functionality first hand while all meeting participants simultaneously watch the action on a boardroom screen. To fully realize the experience however, we find the unit could benefit from a couple of wish list items: 1. When the display is rotated to tablet mode and angled to approx. 45°, effectively mimicking a touch panel, the constant torque swivel hinge does not provide enough resistance to the push of a finger. Although we have easily remedied this with a simple adjustable device that locks the display into position, it would be fantastic if Lenovo could incorporate this feature directly into the unit. Not only does locking the hinge at any angle provide a solid surface to accept finger touch input, but it also converts the tablet into a perfect drawing easel without requiring an additional stand. This arrangement is so convenient in fact, that we usually keep our X200's on our desks in this mode, and use software from http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/ for keyboard and mouse input from the desktop machines:  2. To effectively mimic a touchpanel GUI, the touch drivers need to accept both the push and release of the finger, i.e. by passing both the left click button down and button up events to the underlying application. These push and release events could then be used to dri... Read more

Hi, I have the X200 Tablet 7450 ERG.

Answer:High performance SSD for my X200 Tablet

I was in your exact situation.  I liked having an SSD, but found the small size to be rather painful.  I now have an OCZ Vertex 120GB SSD installed in my X200 Tablet.  I also have Intel SSDs in my desktops.  I know there is a 250GB OCZ, and a 160GB Intel.  Both are very, very fast, and both can be installed in the X200T.  An advantage that the latest OCZ Vertex and Intel drives have is that they have TRIM support, which helps mitigate the performance degradation issue you see in SSDs, at least under Windows 7. Both were easy to install, although the OCZ needed a firmware update.  The X200T did not play nice with the firmware update software, and I had to drop it into my desktop to do that. The only problem with replacing the Samsung SSD, at least the one I received, is that it's a 1.8" disk, with the appropriate mounting bracket.  Why Lenovo chose that form factor is beyond me, because the drive bay can fit a 2.5".  I was not able to find a suitable drive bracket for a 2.5" disk on Lenovo's site, but I found one relatively easily on EBay, and I assume if you call Lenovo you can order the correct part over the phone.  While I was waiting for the it to arrive, I made do with a folded piece of paper wedged in under the drive to hold it in place.  Sad, i know, but I couldn't wait, and it worked. If you don't want to deal with the drive bracket, Intel also makes 1.8" versions of their SSDs, which as far as ...

The only other threads that I've seen with similar problems involve computers that have fingerprint readers and require updates fingerprint reader software - I didn't get the fingerprint reader on my tablet.  I ordered it direct from lenovo.com with a few customizations (2gb RAm in 1 DIMM, 9 cell battery, etc). I am running vista business 32 bit with 2 Gb of RAM,  1.86 Ghz L9400 Processor, and the sticker on the bottom says type: 7448-CTO.  Let me know if any other data is needed for diagnosis. My problem is this:  occasionally (I'd say one out of every three times) when I put the computer to sleep it won't wake up.  The battery indicator light will come on but the half-moon sleep indicator light stays on and none of the other indicators light up like they do when it actually wakes up.  The screen stays black and I don't hear any noises from the laptop internals.  It never halfway wakes up, the backlight doesn't come on, nothing - it just stays black.  This happens no matter what method I use to put it to sleep: either by closing the laptop or going to start-> sleep or by hitting function F4.  It also seems to not matter how long it has been sleeping before attempting to wake it, it could be 7 minutes or a few hours - sometimes it wakes up and sometimes it doesn't.  The only way I can do anything is to hold down the power button to do a hard shutdown and restart it.  Not loving having to do that so often.&nbs...

I have an X200 tablet which came with Vista Business Edition. We use Vista Enterprise. I have installed that on it and have lost all tablet functionality i.e. ability to use the pen etc. I was told that I would not lose this functionality with Vista Ent. Is there a seperate component that I need to install on the new OS to get that functionality back? Any help would be appreciated. thx Mike

Answer:X200 tablet function not working

Vista Enterprise does have Tablet PC features. All you have to do is installing all tablet-related drivers to enable it. I don't know what exact model you have, but this is multitouch driver http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67220 for X200T

First, got to say after 2 days with this tablet, I really like it, but I do have questions on what appears to be some missing features....is it just me or does the documentation for this model seem rather scant in it's description of functions and how to's? Question 1:  How do I turn on the illuminated keyboard and the "Thinklight"?  This is a feature I definitely need for those long plane rides with horrible lighting. Question 2:  How do I turn on the auto rotate sensor for the screen?  It doesn't seem to function and I'm always having to manually push the button to change the screen to fit my new orientation. Question 3:  I have the bios from Dec 18, 2008 - has anyone updated to the 2009 Bios version and did you see any improvements or negative issues? Question 4:  I have the 8 cell battery pack but with a full charge, it only shows 3.5 hours left....I've not yet tried the battery stretch, but was curious if the "default" config was supposed to provide a bit more time than that. Question 5:  Does anyone have the Thinkpad X200 tablet sleeve item # 43R9115?  Any comments on the quality, useability, overall level of satisfaction with this case?  Question 6:  Has anyone installed the brand new Toshiba 512GB SSD?  256 GB SSD?  How is the speed, power consumption vs standard HD - r u sold on SSD?  Regrets? Thanks so much for all your help - other than the LED's and orientation sens...

Answer:X200 Tablet Newbie Here - First Post

1. There is no Thinklight on the X200T.  Sorry - let Lenovo know of your disappointment.  But remember, it is mainly supposed to be used as a tablet, where a light on the keyboard would be of no use...The X200s  series has no such limitation. 2.  See this thread: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/showthread.php?t=10875  3.  Using the latest Bios - no difference I can detect. 4. You cannot go by the "hours left" data.  Put it in whatever mode you want to test, and run it until it shuts down.  Then you will know.  Most users have had no complaints with the longevity of the 8-cell battery. 5. Nope 6. See this thread for evaluation of SLC SSD conversion: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/showthread.php?t=10875  7. Oh!  there is no 7....

Dear Community, I am new to the Lenovo Forum. I am curious if there are other Canadians currently on the forum awaiting for the new X200 Tablet to arrive. Please post here in hopes Lenovo will consider bringing the newly anticipated X200 Tablet sooner to Canadians. The boarder between Canada and the United States is preventing many Canadian customers from purchasing directly from Lenovo.com in the United States. Since we are on the same continent (North America). I think manufacture should seriously start thinking of wide N.America orders. Its painful, is not? This issue I feel is counter productive for both manufactures (estimated sells and revenues) and customers (individuals need and small business). This leads to USA Forwarding Service (like usa2me.com or myUS.com) to buy desired units. These services are not cheap and have tendency to find excuse to lose parcels that they see have high resell values. I have done a rough calculation that it would cost almost $400 US before tax for these service to send me the unit. While Canada Customs like to put heavy import tax in the range from $200 to $500 CAN before tax. Would not Lenovo like to absorb those $400 US before tax per unit in warranty services or more expansive units? I sincerely hope this post can reach out to people who feel similar and that this can change ways we do business in N. America. Feel free to comment or respond in agreement or disagreement. Thank you for all tak... Read more

Answer:Bring X200 Tablet To Canadians

I absolutly agree. First though let me say a word of caution. Buying computers from the US while living in Canada is a very bad idea. While I do not know how the warranty service would work if you were to send a US version of the x200t back to the repair shop...it most probably would be declined since canadian Lenovo repair shop would not be able to get paid back for the repair. But in the end, what really bothers me is that we know the x200t is available in the states... yet Lenovo still sells the x61 like it's the best tablet on earth. Don't get me wrong, the x61 was a great tablet... but the key word here is "was". It's an outdated machine and I think it is wrong, ethically speaking, for lenovo to continue selling it with no warning to buyers that a new model is comming. Of course a sharp buyer will already know that or at least be tipped off by the unusually low price of the x61...  Finally, I wish Lenovo could be more transparent... the question is simple. Why is the x200t not available.. is it the manufacturing lagging behind ? Is it the global financial crisis... maybe an alien invasion of lenovo headquarters who knows... just let us know. We're business people for the most part... we can deal with facts. I can wait but not forever and I cannot stand the idea of buying a Fujitsu or worst...an HP !! yuck !! Please Lenovo let us know what's going on?Message Edited by rancorbeast on 10-24-2008 08:59 AM

I just purchased an X200 with Verizon WWAN.  I have not yet called to activate but i noticed the Access Connects has an entry for Verizon Wireless and for Verizon Wireless - International.  My question is whether this system is set up with the ability to add a SIM Card so that i can roam internationally and still use Verizon WWAN?  If so, how do i go about getting the SIM Card - Lenovo or Verizon?  Thanks
 
Moderator edit: Replaced WLAN with WWAN throughout.

Answer:X200 Tablet International WWAN

Hi gcarrie, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
 
The X200 "Verizon" WWAN option is a clever Qualcomm Gobi card which works on both CDMA-based and GSM-based data networks. In the US Verizon uses CDMA-based data. To work with the data networks in GSM countries the Gobi card needs a SIM card. I believe the X200 Verizon card is locked to Verizon SIMs.
 
P.S. Hope you don't mind my little edit!

Does anyone else have a problem with shutting down on x200 tablets? On occasion my shutdown will bring up a black screen with the old windows hourglass, instead of the standard windows 7 screen with the green circle. The black screen will stay there indefinately, never shuts down. Sometimes I can make the computer sleep at this screen, after waking up the computer then shuts down normally. Other times it shuts down 100% normally.Windows 7 x64

Answer:x200 tablet freezes at shutdown

Update your BIOS.
