Question: X200 Tablet Help

Hi. I am having troubles with my lenovo x200 tablet running windows 7 32-bit.Last night it was working fine but this morning i turned it on and went into windows but i cannot log on because it goes to sleep automatically every 5 seconds or so. The 4 indicator lights are also flashing instead of staying still like the wireless and bluetooth indicator light if that makes a difference. Help is appreciated. Thank you in advance =)

Preferred Solution: X200 Tablet Help

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 Tablet Help

It sounds like the notebook is low in power, either the battery has no charge or is not holding charge (old/defective). If it's plugged in AC outlet already, then possibly computer hardware issue. Please refer to page 23 in the "Service and Troubleshooting Guide". You might need to have your unit serviced.

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!

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

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..

Hi:I'm looking at purchasing the X200 tablet. I'm looking at the SL9600 offering as well as some of the other whistles and bells. 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...

Answer:X200 Tablet

Assuming the specimens that failed were distributed across a broad range of users that weren't  in the vicinity of the same EMP then the law of quantities and percentages seems particularly visccious in this case. We purchase in lots of 25 and just sourced 75 hingers and 75 tablets and of varying Type's and didn't have a single DoA nor failure in the last  month. The reason we keep buying the most expensive laptop made is we know the quality can be assumed and the service can be assured, if you're geting bad service for any reason than expect swarms of assistance from the mod employees here determined to rectify your issues and ensure you choose Thinkpad for your next round of gear.

Hi! I would first check if you indeed have a model that supports multitouch. Please go here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/partsLookup.page You'll then need to enter your machine type, which is a 4 digit code on the bottom of the laptop.

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. My wife is a Direct of IT as well and I finally got her to use a tablet with the same results.  The la... Read more

Answer:X200 Tablet

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.

Just received an old 4GB X200 tablet with Windows 10 Pro via eBay to use for browsing.   I've found it quite fast and love the keyboard.  Old tech, but better than a lot of newer equipment.  And at $79 delivered, no way to lose, and it is very similar to my favorite T420. As it uses a 2.5" HDD, i am thinking about switching to an SSD (as I have with my T420).  I understand that the X200 uses Sata 2 and was wondering how others have found performance when doing this with an X200. I've found no problems with drivers so far, but are there more desirable ones than the Microsoft ones in Windows 10 for graphics, etc.?

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

I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate. Short story: The green power indicator (the (Z) light) will be on, but the computer is otherwise entirely unresponsive and is absolutely silent: the fan isn't running and CPU/processor isn't clicking away.  My only way of successfully interacting with it is by holding the power button to force a power-down.  Is this a hardware problem? Long story: Initially, I had a problem with sleep mode; when I would close my computer, it would go to sleep and when I reopened it, it would remain asleep.  The green moon light, indicating sleep mode, was on, but the computer was otherwise unresponsive.  Even holding the power button to force a power down was futile, unless I pressed the button within seconds of opening the notebook. Scanning the Internet lead to a lot of people having similar, but not exactly so, problems with their ThinkPads, but the popular solution (turning off hybrid sleep) did nothing, as it was already off.  I pressed the ThinkVantage button and downloaded whatever updates were available for that, and once the download was finished, I restarted my computer, which also installed a few Windows updates which had been waiting in the background.  Windows did its usual installation as it powered down, and as it restarted, the problems I described in the Short story version above began.  I've been stuck at this point ever since.  The RAM and hard drive appear to be undamaged.&...

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 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?

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

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

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.

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 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.

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

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 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

Hello everyone Im thinking of buying a lenovo x200 tablet pc and as i cant get it directly from lenovo.com and have it configured as i want need to ask a few things  1. If you get it with the intel 5100 wifi card, how easy it is to change it with the 5300 yourself? I read that the 5300 uses three antennas, will the x200 have the antennas there or the change with the 5300 will be in waste? 2. The 3 GB ram that it will have preinstalled which brand are? Are they any good? or should i changed them with some crusial ones 2x2GBs? 3. The 320GB hdd 7200rpm which brand is it? 4. Is it easy to remove the turbo memory and should someone do that? 5.I have read the tabook,i have searched around but i cant understand this74508HU and 74538HUseems like they have everything the same but the difference in price is around 100$.Does anyone have an idea whats the difference?Then the 74498JU also has almost everything the same apart from windows XP to vista business and it has plus an ultrabase and DVD but costs 300$ less than 74508HU!!!So whats going on???

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

Plus no sound.The laptop though beeps out of the speakers on startup so I know they work. Then I richt clicked it to open the sound properties. There was a line called: "Open Volume Mixer" I clicked on it, window opens with the note:" No audio device installed".Under Playback and recording are located the Speaker (working) and the Internal microphone (working).I tried everything. I reinstalled the Conexant driver in Normal Vista mode and in Vista SAfe Mode(Press F8 on boot).

The smart audio II aplication needs to be reinstalled." Of course I did this but still the same error.I know from previous experience that somtimes you have to reinstall the modem before you install the sound driver this because the modem needs the sound driver to operate properly.Is this my problem or do I have to go at this another way.

I'm having trouble getting my X200 tablet back to its factory settings. Most of the instructions I've found online say to press the blue "ThinkVantage" button when prompted during startup, but instead of having an F11 option to restore factory settings, I only have three options: 1) continue booting2) BIOS3) choose temporary boot device It appears I have a recovery partition (Lenovo Recovery H: ). Rescue and Recovery is installed. Next I tried to create factory recovery disks. When I try to run "Factory Recovery Disks" in "Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools", I get an error when selecting the "data media" option saying: "The files required by this program cannot be found." Note 1: I installed Ubuntu 10.04 alongside the original OS (Windows 7). Could this have messed with the recovery partition somehow? Note 2: The HD isn't faulty or anything, I'm just giving the computer to someone else and want to restore it to factory settings first. Note 3: On my new X220 tablet, if I press the ThinkVantage button when prompted, no menu comes up at all! Instead, it just goes to Grub (again, I am dual-booting Ubuntu). But if I open "Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools" and run the "Factory Recovery Disks" program, creating the boot media and data media DOES work.

Answer:X200 Tablet factory restore

hey theMatrixHasYou,it is possible that Ubuntu messed with the recovery partition. normally when installing Ubuntu there will a section whereby you can specify how much space to use.it is at this part where a lot of problems can occur with the recovery partition. either the recovery partition was removed or it could have been converted to an ext4 (or was it ext5) partition.anyway, did you make recovery media? and was it made before your unit became a dual boot system?

At home I use Tenda W311R+ router (802.11b/g/n) and still the same problem as almost everywhere else. I tried to change settings in access connections, windows wireless connections. Nothing worked for me. Finally I bought a new wireless card (Intel WIFI Link 5100, model: 512AN_MMW) just the same that the old one. It turned up not to be the lenovo original part (bought on ebay too) so I had do some procedure I found at google (taping one pin of new wifi card and putting it into WWAN card slot). Unfortunately it "worked" just the same way as the old one. I've also checked if both wires to from card to antenas are OK - they are. I don't now what to do next, hopeless sitiation.

Hi all, Through work, I've had several Lenovo tablets in the past and have had ok, not great, experiences with them, due mainly to them being underpowered.  I'm currently trying to order an X200 tablet and am very dismayed to find that I can't order it with the processor I would like (either the SL 9600 or SU 9600). I also am looking for a 320gb 7200 rpm hard drive as well.  I've called Lenovo on a number of occasions, but have deduced that I'd be better off asking my very old grandmother who has never touched a computer.  The model I'm trying to buy was apparently sold for a few weeks in the US back in May and is currently being sold in Australia and other countries.  Since Lenovo told me they are all built in China I don't see why I don't have this chipset as an order option, not matter where I live?  If it is about price, just jack it up like you do most things like memory upgrades etc., but at least give me, your consumer, the option to decide.  I've also been told by several "managers" at Lenovo who promised to look into this that they would get back in touch with me but to date only silence (it's been 3-4 weeks).  Not that surprised as this unfortunately seems to be the mantra of Lenovo customer service these days.  Does anyone here have any idea if the 9600 chipset will ever be offered in the X200 tablet again and why it was pulled from the US market? Thank you, Ginny

Answer:X200 Tablet Order Issue

Hi Ginny79, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community! Which model type are you trying to buy?  There are several SL9600 model types in the ThinkPad Reference Book (tabook). The couple I checked are available in the US (e.g. 7450-9RU).  None of them are configured with a 320GB drive, but you can upgrade that later. If you were trying to custom configure one in the Lenovo store, it's not uncommon for the options to change to reflect the availability of parts at a particular point in time.

I am new to this forum and also a first time Lenovo owner! First of all, I like to thank Bananaman sincerely and some other members for providing invaluable info. and insight re. x200 tablet. I am happy with my x200 tablet so far (ordered in mid Nov. '09 and received one month later), especially because it does have the 2 finger multitouch screen.

Hi guys, it is my first post on the forums about a laptop problem, so here it goes. Ever since I upgraded to windows 7 (clean install), I have been experiencing corrupt video on the desktop, and most applications that I use. Sometimes it is only a little bit of the screen, sometimes it has been a majority of the screen (usually when using office applications). What is really interesting is that the problem has become significantly worse since I updated to the latest graphics driver for my machine. Several causes have been suggested to me for this problem, ranging from being an OS issue to a bad display (ruled out by hooking the lappy up to an external monitor) to the more plausible bad ram problem because my laptop uses shared memory (gm950, I believe). I have run the lenovo system toolbox on my memory, but no problems were found. has anyone else run into this problem? Any advice would really be appreciated. I love my lappy, with the exception of this problem Screen shot

Hey, folks -- I've discovered recently that the screen mapping for my pen is rotated when the screen is in any mode but Primary Landscape.  For example, in Primary Portrait, when I put the pen in the top left corner, the cursor is in the bottom left; when the pen is in the top right corner, the cursor is in the top left.  I've tried recalibrating the cursor, but the problem immediately returns when I'm done.  Furthermore, the click animation is displayed in the incorrect corner AS I'M RECALIBRATING.  This is very annoying. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hi, I have the X200 Tablet 7450 ERG. Preinstalled in the computer is a Samsung SSD 64GB disk - but I have found no information about the form factor of the disk, and I am uncertain about what disk to get as replacement due to that (so it fits perfectly inside the machine). Just after installing the nessecarily programs and functions I use, and having a minimum of storage place for the most recent files I work on - I am left with 5-7GB of storage... What disk can I get to increase the storage AND performance of my machine. If battery time is a little shorter, I don't care, and price don't scare me too much either. Technical performance (as high as possible speed under all conditions without lag) and 128GB+ storage is a requirement. Looking forward to get your recommendations!  Regards,OA

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 ...

Morning to all reading, I have a few problems with my x200 tablet that i am very annoyed with:1. On low brightness the screen flickers (up the top) and i cannot work. I travel a lot (overseas) and this is a problem as i need battery life and can only work in full brightness. 2. I have some sort of stain on the inside of my screen, it does not look like a dead pixel to me, it looks like a stain. I bought my ThinkPad x200 tablet at the end of February this year and when I received it I called the helpdesk for Australia and spoke to them about my problem. They told me that if it is a dead pixel they have to replace the screen and it will cost me like $900 and if I don?t choose to do this I have to pay for them to release it. Now I think this is the (excuse me) crappiest service I have ever received. I bought a Lenovo because I am in business and I travel and I heard their tablet was the best you could possibly get. If I knew the service would be like this I would have paid extra elsewhere to receive better service. Now for a company as reputable as Lenovo, I would think their standards would be higher. I have been reading forums and it seems a lot of people have had this problem and personally I am very disappointed with the service I received as well as the product I received. Is there anyone on here that can assist me with this problem? It needs to be rectified Thank you.

I used my laptop this morning with no problems, then came back to it this afternoon, woke it, and my wireless adapter was simply no longer in the system. It does not even show up in device manager (I'm running Windows 7, by the way). I tried shutting down and rebooting, booting into safe mode, using the hardware radio switch, and none of these methods have even gotten the adapter to show up. I could really use some help.

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.

My Lenovo X200 has been making some unusual noises and is slower than a snail, and I am worried that the drive is going to start crashing. The OS is Vista Business 32 Bit. Based on what I found online, the procedure goes something like this...

Remove screw on side
Use pull tab to remove disk
and to put it back-

Slide back in
Replace screw

This is suspiciously easy - wouldn't there be a cable involved somewhere? The hard drive in the videos appeared to have dots on it, so I think it is a metal bracket with circular dots - is it? I read that the maximum is 500GB because any higher than that is thicker - is that right? Finally, could an SSD be used without having to load any drivers to install vista from the set of 3 OEM discs? Even with a normal HDD, would I need drivers?

I recently purchased an X200 Tablet from ebay and was curious as to what type of screen it has.The model number is 7453-W75, which doesn't help as it's a CTO. The screen is pen input only.The reason why I am confused is because if I look under device manage it shows the display ID as LEN4011. Further research shows that LEN4011 is a Samsung LED back-lit PVA panel. But people who had that got different results from other identification programs.What really confuses me is that the back of my Thinkpad has the warning for a lamp with mercury, which means it must be CCFL back lit and not LED, but LEN4011 is LED.IIRC, the only CCFL pen input panels were the Hydis IPS ones?Any help that doesn't involve taking apart the laptop would be appreciated!

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 received my X200 Tablet with the Superbright LED screen a few months ago, and I have been suffering from severe eye strain and headaches ever since. I knew my woes had something to do with the display itself but I couldn't quite figure out the exact cause until recently.  Using my cell phone camera, I discovered that the screen was flickering. Because the refresh rate of the cell phone camera is relatively low, it interferes with the flickering on my LCD screen. Through the cell phone camera, the screen appears to have moving dark vertical or horizontal banding (depending on the cell phone orientation).Through some internet searches and participation at other forums, I discovered that LED displays uses pulse width modulation (PWM) to dim the display. PWM in effect, flickers the screen on and off at variable rates to create the illusion of a dimmer display. In the case of X200 Tablets equipped with LED backlit displays, the screen flickers 100% of the time when on battery even at the highest brightness level. I'm assuming this is to conserve battery but it wreaks havoc on my eyes and sanity. The only time my laptop stops flickering is when it is plugged in and set to the highest brightness. I now find myself constantly seeking an electrical outlet whenever I want to use my laptop even if my battery is fully charged. This really takes away from the convenince of my laptop. Furthermore, it is usually too bright at the highest brightness level unless I am outside or ... Read more

Answer:Flickering LED Screen on my X200 Tablet

Same here with this x200 LED touch panel.  Thought this issue would not affect me, but after using the machine at half-brightness I start to get some sort of headache which goes away instantly when I turn up the screen brightness to max and set the gamma to very low (software brightness). My previous machine has a higher dpi (smaller dots) and I do not have this issue.  It has a CCFL backlit screen.  This x200 screen flickers at 90Hz which a percentage of the population do react to.  Why doesn't Lenovo QA these sort of 'human issues' as we are paying quite a high price for these machines?  And no, here in the UK we are fixed to one single non-configurable x200 tablet.  There are NO hardware options, so we cannot order a CCFL non-touch screen.  It would be very nice if Lenovo could replace my panel with a non-touch CCFL version to allow me to use the machine at lower than full brightness without getting headaches.

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

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

I have a Lenovo X200 Tablet that I am using as a remote control over TCP/IP for a piece of hardware. The software has been buggy on Vista so I updated to Windows 7 Pro hoping to resolve some issues with XP mode. After the install I noticed some features were missing (I don't remember what), so I downloaded the lenovo ThinkVantage software to update the system. Since then, the tablet feature (pen/stylus input) will not work. I have spent the better part of three days in lenovo forums trying suggested driver downloads from lenovo and wacom. It is a Penabled device but it does not have the MultiTouch option to my knowledge. I have used the recovery discs sent with the X200 hoping that it would restore the tablet functionality, but it did not. During system updates, the machine seems to be recognized as a tablet, because it downloads the MultiTouch driver: the Tablet PC input panel shows up, there are several options for Tablet functions in Control Panel. I have even tried swapping the tip on the stylus. PLEASE help if you can. I have spoken with lenovo and they will not help because (believe it or not) my waranty expired on 9/24...5 days ago. I am currently running Vista but want to try Windows 7 again. Thanks! Todd

Ordered a  Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet to replace my too slow Dell ST2.It has 4GB ram and has been upgraded to Windows 10 Pro. I would appreciate any recommended drivers or other information. I know it's old school, but just needed an inexpensive browser for the porch.
