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: X61 Tablet what OS better&faster XP tablet or Vista Business???

I can say that XP is simply faster, but Vista is just much better as far as Tablet functionality is concerned.

First of all, hello to everyone as this is my first post in the message boards. I bought myself a second-hand lenovo X61 tablet notebook (which was bought in USA) and now I'm stuck with Windows Vista. I've already called Microsoft Brazil and Lenovo Brazil and they can't seem to be able to help me get myself the XP Tablet discs so I can get my official downgrade. The Lenovo Brazil helpdesk told me to call Lenovo USA to ask them if there is a possibility they'll ship the XP recovery media to Brazil so I decided to post here first and avoid the enormous phone bill. So, I guess my question is: Will Lenovo USA ship the XP Tablet recovery media to Brazil?

Answer:How to get myself the Vista Business downgrade to XP Tablet outside USA?

I would highly recommend you keep Vista.  XP Tablet edition is far buggier than regular XP.  I even converted my x41 (which had a super slow HD) to Vista, it wasn't noticably slower, but I was definitely less buggy!  If you still wanna switch back, and if Lenovo won't send you XP media, I'd probably send you mine for shipping cost. I now have an x61t and the only thing with newly installed Vista is that you need to get any additional software installed and then let the system settle itself down--with indexing, etc.  Just put the power plan to max performance and leave it on overnight.  Then I would do the following: 1) Diskeeper: Either turn off real time defrag or uninstall the whole program2) Create a custom power plan: (for both AC and on Battery) Set CPU to Adaptive, balance all parameters, choose display brightness you can tolerate on battery.  You may also want to adjust hard drive idle time, etc. 3) Turn off the "Window Aero Theme" -- it looks like crap on my system.4) Set windows search/indexing to only run minimally--basically they won't index when you are on battery.  I also turn off windows defenders real time protection.  Just have it scan once a week.5) Uninstall Lenovo bloatware (Lenovo says: ''), I mean preinstalled software you don't use... Personally, I uninstalled: maintanence manager, help center, access help, message center, productivity center, hotkey, easy eject, system migra...

Hi guys, I recently bought X61T (7764-CTO: Windows Vista Business ) plus Windows XP 2005 Tablet downgrading option.My X61T came with one bootable "Rescue and Recovery CD", which I assume to be XP downgrade CD.I tried to downgrade by booting up the X61 with the CD in the drive, however, I end up with being stuck with an error message,"Product Recovery could not find file X:\Preboot\Utils\Convert.cmd" The downgrading procedure didn't start and I have no clue how to fix this and go ahead with Windows XP..Does anyone know what is going on?I have checked the contents of the CD from another PC and checked the folder whether Convert.cmd is actually existing, but failed to find one.I assume that the CD might be wrong and corrupted for some reason. I really appreciate any idea or comments or help.Thank you very much. Best,Thomas

Answer:Downgrading from Vista Business to XP 2005 Tablet

Thomas, My tablet came with 3 discs: Rescue and Recovery Disc: Microsoft Windows XP ProfessionalProduct Recovery Disc: Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition SP 2 (disc 1 of 2)Product Recovery Disc: Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition SP 2 (disc 2 of 2)I initially thought, "cool, they gave me both XP Tablet PC Edition as well as regular XP Professional"... but as it turns out, the first disc isn't really a stand-alone copy of XP Pro.  Instead, all 3 discs were necessary to install Tablet PC edition. When i tried booting from the "Product Recovery Disc (1 of 2)," I received the same error that you did: "Product Recovery could not find file C:\Preboot\Utils\Convert.cmd" (however, my error pointed to "C:\" instead of "X:\" ) But when I booted from the "Rescue and Recovery Disc: Microsoft Windows Professional" disc, everything worked fine.  It copied and installed some files from the R&R disc, rebooted, then asked for the "Product Recovery CD disc 1"! Are you sure your tablet didn't come with the R&R disc?Message Edited by vhui313 on 03-10-2009 01:13 AM

Hi all. My first post! Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm watching an eBay item that's a HP Compaq TC4400 with Wacom Stylus. According to the listing it comes with a fresh installation of Windows Vista Business edition. That's all the OS information it gives. I did ask the seller this question but apparently as it's a cheap laptop/tablet it's not worth his while to answer what he doesn't know off the top of his head. :-P

Basically I know that these machines originally came with Windows XP tablet edition (possibly 2005 ed, though not sure). This one's been upgraded to Vista (it now has the Vista licence sticker on the bottom to prove it) but as I've very little knowledge of Vista versions, I don't know what's supported and what isn't. Will this machine work with handwriting recognition? (XP only did with tablet pc edition -is this feature now built into all Vista versions??) Also, can I just download the Wacom drivers from HP to get pressure sensitivity working or are there other known problems?

Anything else I should know? Basically I'm wanting this tablet/laptop for its Wacom capabilities and if they're going to be a pain to get working then I'm not really interested but I currently have no way of knowing as I'm not familiar with Vista and its different versions.

Thanks in advance

I would appreciate any suggestions on creating/editing the user account on my second-hand thinkpad X61 tablet (running Vista Business) edition. I bought the laptop from ebay in Germany/Austria. When I switched it on, there were no options to create or edit a username. I have completed all the updates (Lenavo and Windows). I tried the following to add a new administrative account:1, Control Panel then selecting User Accounts. A screen appears for a second and then disappears. 2. I have also tried typing in sysdm.cpl in the command prompt,  None of the above worked, as the screen does not appear at all. I have also tried allowing the automatic updates on, that does not work either. I was wondering if this is managed by the Think Vantage system. Not sure if this is relevant, the Vista Business language was set in German and I added a language pack via Vistalizator to turn it into English. Any help with this issue would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

I need x201t-sized unit to run few virtual machines on as well as double as my main machine (larger monitor at home and office). I am hoping i7 "M" type CPUs to be available on the x201t, but all I see are "LM"s. In which case, if I understand correctly, for my use, all i5-based current (not to mention the i7-based ones) and future x201 non-tablets will kick the behind of the i7-based x201t tablets. Such an amazing letdown! I REALLY want a tablet! But it is a NASTY sacrifice if I exchange an extra grand for a heavier unit with mediocre performance just to have a multi-touch. I know It seems like I want a lot, and I should be looking at T or W series, but I only have money for one good machine that I can comfortably use in the economy seat (let me tell you, for me, my recently dead dv2000 14.1" was a TIGHT fit in that situation).   Right? Set me straight my fiends!  THANKS! =) More info: Prices look like this:  $1500 for a decked out x201 and $2500 for a decked out x201t I plan to upgrade my own memory (8gb) and hard drive (SSD), unless there are some caveats that I should be aware of (I am getting the baseline options for those). Until now I have been using a DV2000 core 2 duo 5400 CPU which I think has an OK performance for my uses.  I want a tablet because I just want it. It is pretty nifty tech and I like clicking links with my fingers over using any other pointing device. I also do not want to feel like my laptop is lacking compared to others in a year... Read more

Hello
My Wacom tablet's pen has died and I hope to have a new one arriving in a few days but in the meantime I dug out an old Hanvon Rollick tablet which isn't supported under Windows 10 (which I use) but I nevertheless found some Windows 7 drivers for it which people reported working under Windows 10.

The problem is my PC is trying to behave like a tablet e.g. putting that blue teardrop thing on text boxes on Chrome (I'm not sure of its correct name) and when I try to ctrl-click a link, it shows a little "ctrl" label under the cursor and won't open the link in a new tab like it's supposed to and just does it in the same tab.

It takes multiple tries to right-click and open a link and when I hover over the link the cursor keeps rapidly flashing between the arrow and finger icons.

It is very difficult to click minimise, restore or close on Chrome because hovering over them doesn't make them go red and clicking on them doesn't tend to make them do anything unless you try many, many times.It's being profoundly irritating in programs other than Chrome too but those are some examples.

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

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.

The internet can be working perfectly fine while in non tablet mode but as soon as I switch to tablet mode, my internet disconnects. And if I switch back to non tablet mode from tablet mode, my internet returns almost instantaneously. I can load a page in non tablet mode with no problems, switch to tablet mode and the page stops loading. If I return back to non tablet mode the page resumes loading without so much as a pause or a hiccup.

Mainly for using when preparing yearly tax forms.

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?

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.

You have to get into Tablet shortcut menu setting and do it all first. For the rest, uninstalled all ThinkPad Tablet Button Driver, ThinkPad Tablet shortcut menu then restar and reinstall vis System Update. Just let it find for you; that's the only thing I could recommend for this case.

If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

Hi,
I'm going to be doing some presentations and teaching online. I'm using Team Viewer 9 running on Windows 7 as my software. I would like to be able to have the equivalent to a whiteboard visible to the participants.
For a demonstration of the sort of thing I want to do see
click here
where the presenter draws circles etc. He doesn't do any handwriting in the YouTube video (but he does in the actual presentation at CBT nuggets)
I'm total newbie when it comes to tablets, but a tablet that allows drawing direct on the tablet and simultaneous display on a Windows monitor. I know that the presentation on You Tube was done with various Wacom devices. Intuos4, Cintiq monitor, or more recently, Cintiq Companion tablet. (I tweeted the presenter Shawn Powers). These devices are a bit beyond my budget. Is there a cheaper alternative? Sadly the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is not yest available in Australia (where I am) - I'm not sure if it's a possible answer, but I'm assuming it would be. Is there anything else that's not going to mean I have to take out a mortgage on my house?
Thanks in advance for your help.
cheers,
Bernard

Answer:Drawing on a tablet with simultaneous display on the tablet and a Windows PC

Hi, I have here a X220 Tablet that seem to have a FAN problem.Often in the last days my CPU temperature is often over 90 CAnd the fan has problem to reduce the temperature.I have also situation that the CPU is going too hot and the tablet switch off! With the CPU tool TPFC.62 I can see that the fan speed is 2300-2500 RPMs.But this seams not enough to be. And now the strange thing:When I disable the graphic adapter ?Intel(R) HD Graphics Family? (Driver 8.15.10.2321) and reboot and do the same thing that I done to get the temperature over 90 C with the intel graphic adapter the temperature is not going over 83 C!!! The fan speed is 3500-3800 RPMs. Can someone helps me with this issue?  

Answer:X220 Tablet FAN Problem - temperature over 90 °C - tablet switch off :(

Hi giciorek,
 
I understand that your fan/temperature problems can be frustrating.  I would try updating your BIOS and also updating Power Manager.  (Some on the forum have tried downloading ThinkPad Fan Control, but that is not an official Lenovo solution.)
 
Download Power Manager here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS014924
 
Download BIOS Update here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS018805
 
In Power Manager, click Advanced at top right, you can Set Optimize Fan Control to Balance All Parameters under Battery Settings.  Set it to Reduce Noise Dynamically under AC.
 
Let me know if this helps.

So the DV port on my asus eee pc 1005peb is failing, and got the idea from android central to look into tablet and tablet hybrids. I kind of like the idea of having a hybrid for both the netbook kind of experience combined with a tablet experience. I'm having trouble discovering what my brands and model options are for that type of device. I'm concerned from what little I have seen so far I'm going to be against a cost prohibitive wall compared to spending $100 to have the port replaced. I'm one to figure if I'm going to toss that kind of cash into a repair I might as well consider replacing it with something else instead of doing the repair.
For my desktop PC I hesitant on going to windows 8 because of a lot of negative stuff I've heard but at the same time I hear good stuff about it too. But when it comes to a portable device like my netbook and a tablet. I think hm windows 8 (not RT) sounds like it would be a good fit since it is designed for both traditional mouse and keyboard input and touchscreen input. Plus I would like to retain the software I use on my netbook to use on whatever replaces it. Something I can't do with my current HP touchpad with webOS and android (CM9) on it. I tried using both as a replacement for my netbook but in the end there were just too many things I didn't like about that. I let my dad take my netbook out of town with him for about 2 month and was trying to use the touchpad as a replacement. I was glad to have my netbook back to use it again.

I have a wierd problem - I have six X61 Tablets, all with XP SP3.  One of them gets the BSOD on every boot during the XP Logo scroll.  This occurs on both its original drive and if I put in an HDD which works fine in another chassis.  Note that it will copy (clone) that disk fine if I follow normal protocol using Acronis True Image Home 2010 CD (on the ultrabase with either CD or DVD) - it clones USB drive to HDD fine, then that HDD works fine in another chassis, but gives the same BSOD when I try to run it in this chassis.  I am pulling my hair out trying to figure what is different, as I am unaware of any setup or BIOS changes.  Any ideas?  Could a bad CMOS battery cause this?  I have yet to try a new HDD setup from Lenovo disk set, but that is my next try.  I hoped to get insight here first, though.  Thanks in advance. Joe Holzer

Well, I've finally had it. I've had my 6365 CTO X60 tablet pc for over a year now and last Monday I lost pen functionality in tablet pc mode in the afternoon after working fine in the morning. It works fine, even now after rotating the screen back to laptop mode. As soon as the screen is rotated back to tablet pc mode, no pen functionality but the mouse still works fine so I know it's functional in laptop mode but rotate back, all ok!  I did uninstall the Wacom drivers, restart, and then downloaded the tablet pc, windows xp version drivers from the wacom.com site as instructed in a previous post. Unfortunately, the digitizer pen is still disabled in tablet pc mode and works fine when rotated back to laptop mode. I've called Lenovo tech support in Atlanta four times now and they've been totally useless. I wiped out my X60 tablet last Friday and used Rescue and Recovery to reinstall the operating system back to it's factory settings. I went back and unistalled and reinstalled the Wacom driver. Nothing. Since that didn't work either I've requested the box to ship this back to the Memphis Depot. Hopefully, I'll just get a new replacement machine that works but I'm so angry and frustrated w/ Lenovo's support because it's obvious that the people on the phone are not tech specialists and they couldn't even point me in a direction to get this fixed. It's cost me over a week now wo...

Answer:X60 tablet pc digitizer pen functionality disabled in tablet pc mode

Problem solved! While the support folks weren't able to fix the problem over the phone, they did overnite me a prepaid return box which I sent back that day. Two days later they overnited my X60 tablet back fixed with a note saying 'LCD enabled'. I'm impressed how quickly they got my tablet pc back up and running. I'm glad I got that 3-yr. support warranty because I usually opt out of those things. This totally paid for itself. I just wish I hadn't been so reluctant to send back my laptop because I do need it for work and I figured I wouldn't get it back for at least a week or longer. I was so frustrated and pessimistic that I forgot sometimes these problems do get fixed in a very satisfactory manner. It's too bad the initial steps that led to sending it back were so painful. Bottom line: Lenovo fixed my pc quickly, no questions asked. Thanks!

I have upgraded to Windows 8 64 bit on my X61 Tablet, however I cannot get the tablet buttons, hotkeys, or auto-rotation to work. My understanding is that Lenovo has stopped supporting these products. I think it is a shame to stop using a perfectly working tablet PC with a superior LCD. I don't want to go back to Win 7 leaving all kinds of nice features on Windows 8. Any suggestions? Is there a hope? Koray

Answer:X61 Tablet Windows 8 - Tablet Button and Features Request

Hi koray,
 
I've been playing around with Windows 8 since the developers preview.  I've ran it on a lot of older systems.  Getting things to work will require some experimentation on your part.  
 
You can start with your Driver Matrix.  There you can find the Hotkeys Utility for Windows 8.  You will also need the Power Manager Driver for Windows 8.  Not Power Manager,  just the Power Manager Driver.  
 
Run Windows Update, it will probably find some stuff.  Some Windows 7 drivers will work, others won't.  
 
I'm running Windows 8 Pro on an x60 tablet and everything works fine.  I also have it on an x61 non-tablet and it runs fine. I had to do a lot of messing around with stuff to get them to work right though. 
 
Just make sure that you set system restore points before changing anything so you can get back what you had before, just in case something doesn't work right.  And, only install one thing at a time and reboot and test it out thoroughly before you install something else.  
 
Good luck with this,
 
Dave

So I purchased my Tablet with XP Tablet OS downgrade (it was suppose to come with Vista, but I choose to have XP tablet instead). So my Laptop gets shipped in a speedy manner, I open the laptop up and there is a Vista sticker on it.  Luckily XP tablet  was installed on the laptop. However, on the bottom of my laptop is a Vista Business Product Key  . . .  Where is my XP Tablet 2003 product key? What if I wanted to do an OS refresh of XP Tablet without using the ThinkVantage software/bootup? What if my HD fails and I need to replace it? Does ThinkVantage offer to burn a cd/create an image or install of the Fresh XP OS install like Dell does? I know it offers to burn a recovery disk, but is that recovery disk just a restore point of the PC, or an actual OS installation. I really would like to be able to avoid the dependancy of ThinkVantage software on the hidden partition for restore and recovery. Also I guess whenever I'm ready to use Vista, how would I go about installing Vista? Is there another selection for creating a "Vista recovery disc"?Message Edited by tonefour on 08-26-2008 09:55 AM

Answer:X61 Tablet XP Tablet OS Product Key? OS refresh concerns!

I feel the same way as you. Last laptop crashed, and the recovery partition/MBR went too. The company wanted me to pay for recovery discs. I couldn't believe it. Anyway, I only have a partial answer for you unfortunately. I have Vista Business installed so you'll have to ask Lenovo about the XP part. I just spoke with Tech Support for though and they showed me where the option to Create Recovery Media was:Start-->All Programs-->ThinkVantage-->Create Recovery Media Follow the wizard and good luck, it worked for me.  We shall see if it actually works when the moment of truth comes. Best

Hi, Happy New Year. I replaced my old harddrive with a new one and I just installed windows xp tablet 2005 (not supplied from lenovo or ibm) on the new HD. Now it seems that a lot of drivers are missing. Like bluetooth, keyboard, wireless... The drivers are available to download from ibm's website, But I have to install 20+ drivers one by one. That is too much. After installing xp, my windows desktop showed no icons except for recycle bin (I believe this is due to drivers missing also). Anybody know is there a x60 tablet driver bundle/package cd image somewhere?

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...

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.

Is it possible to use a Tablet PC Pen on the display screen (13.3" Toshiba True Brite(r) WXGA TFT High Brightness) of my Satellite U400-137. I have some pre-loaded SW for Tablet PC (I Ignore if it was supplied with Windows Vista or some additional complimentary SW supplied by Toshiba with my Note book).
In case that it is impossible to use the pen on the screen does exist some external screen / display by Toshib to connect to my notebook, which coul support Tablet PC SW?

Answer:Satellite U400-137; Tablet PC Pen - Tablet PC

I doubt you can use a pen, even if the laptop has touchscreen capability.

The Tablet PC laptops have an extra digitizer layer inside the screen to sense pen input, so you would need to have a Tablet PC model like the Portege M750 or M780.

 Last week I woke up my X60 from sleep mode like usual and was greeted with a nice "Unknown device found" message. I found that my tablet pen does not write, no buttons on the monitor work and the status lights on the monitor do not work (the charging, battery light and sleep light do not turn on). I have tried several driver upgrades from the website, but none seem to do the trick. I am trying to avoid reformatting to get them to work again, but if that's what it takes... Any suggestions? Running Vista Buisness. 

Answer:X60 Tablet uninstalled tablet driver, help!

Welcome to the [email protected]!  Please contact the help desk about this.  The error that you are seeing is typically related to a bad digitizer.  This is not something that you can replace, as it is attached to the LCD.  They should let you send it in and they will repair this for you.

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.

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..

Question: Vista Tablet

Hi,

I am purchasing a Japanese Vista Business tablet (IBM X200 series). Although my Japanese is acceptable, it would just be more comfortable for me if I could use the OS in English. I did some research, and I came across a few things that I would like some definite answers to:
---------------------------------------------------------------
1) You cannot change the display language to English unless you have Vista Ultimate or Enterprise (or you cannot realistically without 2 days of arduous registry tweaks)

2) You CAN change the display language if you vendor ships their computers with a multi-lingual vista install CD. just do a fresh install, and bingo.

3) There is a program called Vistalizator. It claims to be able to change the display language, using original MS MUI files. Anyone tried this? How reliable is this program? Are there any glitches? Is it safe (ie no malware)?

4) For anyone who has purchased an IBM laptop, does it ship with a multi-lingual install CD?

5) My new PC will be a tablet. Is there a special version of VIsta for tablets? How will the installation of a tablet PC be different from a normal one? Needless to say, I don't want to lose any functionality of my tablet PC.
---------------------------------------------------------------
I realize that's a lot of questions. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Somehow I feel that this question is bordering on the verge of extreme stupidity....and it has taken me weeks to take the plunge and go ahead and ask it - my own attempts at searching for a plausible explanation have yielded othing but frustration.So here it is.

Hi

I have a toshiba tablet portege 400 and i have installed Windows Vista RC2 on it.
Last time when i upgraded it from XP to Vista RC2, i had to backup its UI drivers (tablet specific drivers).
do you guys think i should backup the UI drivers again before i install windows Vista ?

Answer:do i need to back up tablet specific drivers when upgrading from vista RC2 to vista

many times you don't need to...being from a good name maker...

but just in case, you should always go to the maker site and look for such things as vista drivers. Sometimes you'll be given info like "Vista drivers are more updated than these..." etc

Has anyone here had experience running Vista on their X41T?  I'm contemplating upgrading from Windows XP Tablet edition & was wondering:a) if there were any pitfalls to avoid/be aware of in the upgrade process (non-functioning components etc., etc.) &b) whether the upgrade was worthwhile.  I have 2MG RAM in the machine but find it incredibly slow(!) now.  I was hoping - perhaps naievely - that a clean Vista install might improve things ... Relatedly,  does anyone know of a viable replacement hard drive for the X41T?  The 1.8 form factor seems to restrict it to two *very* slow Hitachi drives.  Does anyone know of an SSD model that will fit the X41 T?Message Edited by globalkiwi on 04-23-2009 08:58 AM

Answer:X41 Tablet - Vista (&HDD replacement)?

Hi, I'm not sure if you've already found a replacement hard drive for your X41 tablet, but I thought I'd share my experience.  I searched and searched for a SSD replacement for my X41T and really couldn't find one.  After reading various blogs and such, I finally decided to go the CF card approach using an adapter from Adonics.  The day the adapter came in the mail, I decided that CF cards just aren't made to run operating systems and that I was better off looking again.  I'm really glad I decided not to go the CF route because I found a compatible SSD made in China by KingSpec.  I was skeptical, but YouTube videos showed the drive actually working in an X41, so I was hopeful.  There is a boot error (2010) that says the drive isn't compatible, but I did some research on this and basically I think the only problem that may arise is if you copy files in DOS or using a windows programs that copies files in DOS.  Since I don't do either of these, I've had no problems. You can also adjust the BIOS so that the boot process can bypass after about 5 seconds notification.  I ordered a 64GB KingSpec drive from the one person on Ebay that wasn't from China.  Not that I have a problem with international sellers, it's just that I wanted the drive really quick.  Upon receipt, I used the IBM recovery CD and restored my system to factory settings.   Installing this SSD into my X41T has been the most awesome upgra...

My Wacom Intuos3 tablet, which worked fine with XP, is having trouble with Vista. The cursor shakes all over the place, which is infuriating, as anyone who draws can imagine.

I've tried disabling the Vista tablet service (still shakes), tried updating the Wacom driver (still shakes). I tried something else but I don't remember what it was, in any event, it still shakes. Is there anything I'm missing that might fix it? It's really driving me crazy. I miss being able to use my tablet.

I have had issues with Vista SP1 corrupting the drivers on my X61 tablet. After SP1 was installed, windows update ran an automatic update and tried to update video and audio drivers. which faied, corrupting the current drivers. I unistalled the drivers with the device manager, and downloaded the drivers form the lenovo site, these too failed to install. I ran a factory reformat. This time when SP1 installed my wireless went dead, and windows update has been incapable of installing any updates, i tried removing SP1 which did not help, and now it can't reinstall it. How can i get my wireless back up and running?

Answer:X61 tablet drives & Vista SP1

I would remove the offending drivers and run ThinkVantage System Update to see if that will install your drivers.  I am running Vista Business SP1 and all of my devices work.  As a general rule, I don't let Windows Update install any device drivers for me.  I always go with what the manufacturer specifies to ensure that things should work properly!

Answer:install a game into my tablet from a disc without a disc drive in my tablet

What OS?  Is the game written for that OS?When you say the game is on a disc, what kind of disc?  Do you mean it's on an optical disc such as a CD/DVD?If the tablet is a Windows tablet, and you have a Windows game that is on a CD/DVD, then you should be able get an external optical drive that will plug into the USB port on the tablet.  You'll then be able to install the game to your tablet.  You'll most likely need an external drive with it's own power supply since often the USB port on a tablet can't provide enough power to power an external drive.If you have a desktop or laptop PC with an optical drive then you could share that drive over a network and install to your tablet from the shared drive.

Make a clean reinstallation of Vista on a 120GB partition from the Recovery disks, which I previously created months ago.Q1. Will this create the 5GB Recovery partition on my new disk? Will it work with the blue button?Q2. Will the recovered Vista be clean, i.e. not a snapshot of the updates and application that were installed when I created the recovery disks?Step 2. Dual-boot to linux, in an 80GB partition I reserved in Step 1.Q3. Does dual-booting cause problems with the Recovery mechanism?All thoughts appreciated.Keith

If you are referring to the factory state recovery disk set, it will repartition your drive into the factory state, which is a single OS partion taking up most of the available disk capacity and a small Service partition.  You can't install "into" a particular partition from the disk set.
 
You can resize the operating system partition after installation.

No idea where to put this so it's in here.

Photoshop freezes, Black screen flash, BSOD flash, reboots
It appears to be happening with my tablet in Photoshop.

Photoshop either freezes, crashes or the screen just flashes up a BSOD, in milliseconds so i have NO chance of reading it, and then the PC reboots. Any one know a way of finding what that BSOD says that would help.

I ran a virus check, nothing, i ran spybot and cleaned all the crap it found. Did it again.

So i un-installed my tablet drivers, and re-installed them from Wacom's site.

Same thing happens with ym tablet, yet if i use my MOUSE to paint with it's fine, i go to use the tablet and it does it again, my tablet/vista/drivers have an issue and i need help.

Seriously Vista is a bitch, might get SP1 and see if that fixes any of the problems i get, if not ill send a e-mail to M$ tell em to get their fingers out from where the sun don't shine and sort it out I payed good hard cash for this and it's, useless.

I have a Lenovo X61 tablet PC model 7767 B7U running Windows VISTA business.

I first brought one about 3 and a half months ago. It would lock up and occasionally get blue screens. I called their tech support, ran a HD scan which turned up good, downloaded all necessary drivers, still did not fix the problem. So I sent it in for repairs. The problem persisted, and I sent it in another two times. The problem persisted, after a Hard Drive, System board and memory replacement. I exercised my warranty to get it replaced.

Guess what? The new one has the exact same problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do, because I just dont understand!

A description of the problem: The cursor will simply turn into that little blue circle and the program (internet browser, Microsoft Word, etc.) will simply cease to respond. If I click on another program, I will be able to move in it for about 2 seconds until the pointer becomes the blue circle again and then it will stop responding.
One time, I had task manager open when this was happening. I noticed no memory spikes or anything. There were 3 different programs running, each one stopped responding as soon as I clicked on it.
I cannot figure out a common variable with these freeze ups, they occur whether Im on the internet or not, whether Im using Microsoft Word or Powerpoint, whether Im in Tablet mode or not, etc.
The freeze ups occur anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 and a half hours.
