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.)

Hi I've looked at every category in the drivers matrix and absolutely cannot find the drivers that control the Tablet buttons on my tablet screen,  Can anyone point me to a link???  I found another thread on this forum that talks about a similar issue and someone posted a link to beta drivers, but the link doesn't go beyond the main Support home page at Lenovo.  Thanks, -G

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

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

Hi all, This started of as an email to direct to Lenovo, but after 1 hour of going through there various websites only to discover they don't seem to have an online contact form or a public email address.So I am hoping someone here can help me with my questions.  I have a few questions regarding the IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad x200 Tablet (7450-R93).I am aware that this is not your current model and they have been superseded by the x201 model. The x200?s ?touchscreen?, I cannot seem to find any precise details regarding the type of touch screen technology used in these units.What type of touch technology is used in the x200: Resistive, SAW, Capacitive, Hybrid Capacitive or something else?If we were to purchase a lot of between 5-10 brand new units from the USA, is the warranty offered an international warranty?Do you still produce/sell accessories for this model: specifically batteries and do you make a case for this unit that enables table use while still in the case? Sorry I was to slack to rewrite the email that I prepared to send. ;-) Cheers, Matt

Answer:A couple of Thinkpad X200 Tablet Questions

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

luisTablet, welcome to the Lenovo User Community! That's an ExpressCard/34 / ExpressCard/54 slot in your X200 tablet. You need to search for an ExpressCard SmartCard reader.  For instance, Lenovo sells a Gemplus one.

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

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

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

Answer:How to install vista on my thinkpad tablet x200 without dvdplayer

Do a search online for installing vista through a USB drive. Requires one 4+ GB in size. Isn't a terribly hard thing to do.

Hi,

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

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

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

Answer:Frequent BSOD on Thinkpad X200 tablet with two screens

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

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

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

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

Sigh.  Hopefully someone here can help me. Does anyone know the type model number for the Thinkpad x200 Ultrabase?? I'm trying to get a defective Thinkpad x200 ultrabase replaced because the USB ports stopped working.  Tested it with other USB devices, on other x200s, etc...no go. I tried going through Lenovo's <sarcasm> wonderful </sarcasm> tech support but for some strange reason they can not replace the part because they cannot find the model type in their system.   I sent them a 600DPI PDF of the back of the docking station to them and they said that they still couldn't find it in their system. This is a company laptop and it belongs to a vice president.  They want a proof of purchase (which I don't have because they are ordered through another department and to get that information it might take a week...at the earliest).  Why do they even have the serial number if they cannot connect it to anything in their system??? The worst part is that this is not the first time I've had issues replacing parts.  Every time it takes at least an hour and the parts NEVER come when they say that they do.  (sorry, once they did...bleeping miracle) I NEVER receive an email saying the part was sent or they are having issues, etc. WORST SYTEM EVER. I hope some high mucky-muck is reading this and gets pissed.  Their system is BROKEN and needs to be fixed. Thank you!

Hi!

I have been recently getting a lot of BSOD on my Thinkpad "x200" tablet.

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

Since you added ram recently I would run Memtest

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

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

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

Some T520 systems come as UMTS "capabable" which have all the parts included, others as "ready" - this means they have the anntenae and SIM slot in place, but the actual UMTS modem isn't. I think we need check first to see if your system is a "capable" or "ready" system.

Answer:Does my Lenovo Helix have a built in umts modem?

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
To activate WWAN in your Lenovo ThinkPad Helix, first you have to ensure that you have a WWAN card and WWAN antennas installed. WWAN upgradable models have the WWAN antennas installed from the factory these will be red and blue wires (the Wi-Fi are typically white, black and grey or just black and grey depending on model). If you have WWAN antennas installed from the factory, probably you need to purchase a compatible WWAN card and install it. If you have a WWAN card installed in your system, install Lenovo Mobile Broadband Activation which will guide you through the activation of mobile broadband.
 
Go to Lenovo Support site, enter MTM number of your device in quick path and get the system specifications. If you find any difficulties, please share the MTM of your device.
 
For a system purchased in US, using WWAN in Germany won?t be an issue.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hello,

after Vista 64 bit drivers have been made available, I switched the installed hard disk and did a clean install of Vista Business, along with the drivers that Toshiba posted.

Everything is fine, except that the Wireless Manager accepts the SIM card PIN, but only shows "Transmitter deactivated" ("Sender deaktiviert" in the German version). I can't find a clue where the problem is.

In the device manager window the 3G modem is fine and functional, the PIN is correct and accepted, and I have the latest drivers installed.

Shutting down the notebook and switching the hard drive again gets me back to Vista Business 32 bit and the UMTS card is working fine?

Any help to resolve this is appreciated.


Kind regards,

hello all, i would like to set the three Tablet Buttons (the ones on the 'display' half of the notebook) to Shift, Ctrl and Alt, so i can use photoshop  also in 'tablet' mode of the notebook. the ctrl and alt keys were OK to set up, but it doesn't recognize the Shift key in the setup dialog. is there any known workaround?thanks for any reply.

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

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

Hi, Problem: If you receive more signals 2G, 3G and 2G signal is stronger like 3G, then modem always use 2G signal for connection. But I don't like it.

Hi Evereyone, I'm new here - I just registered to ask for your help.On my work-notebook, a W540 with 16GB memory, 500GB SSD and the Quadro K2100, I got some really anoying problems since I upgraded to Windows 10:1. The UMTS-Modem does not work - it is recognized, the SIM (no PIN) is inserted and working, but I cant even switch the modem on. I have installed the beta-drivers first, second I tried to use the drivers from Lenovos support page. (Modem is the Ericsson N5321GW) currently the most actual driver is installed.2. Webcam: Simply has no function - it is recognized as "Camera Plus (VGA resolution maximum)" - I figured this current condition out by two symptoms:a) Skype gives no pictureb) Auto-Lock is without functionTo resolve this, I downloaded the most actual drivers from Lenovo support-page. Did not help anyway.3. (not very often) I just hangs at boot. A forced power-off and reboot helps almost always. Overall condition: I usually open Lenovo system update almost every day - sometimes there is some software - but nothing has really resolved any problem. The most actual windows updates are installed as well.So anyone with a suggestion how to solve the above?A whole lot of searching other forums did not help, so I just thought this is my more or less final attempt.Regards and have nice weekend, Matthias

Hi guys

how can I find out, if my D620 has got a UMTS/HSDAP modem integrated ?

There is a slot for a mobile sim card under the battery. When I put my Vodafone UMTS Simcard in, nothing happenes.

It would be cool if I wouldn´t need a USB modem Stick like most others need.

Please help !

How can I activate it ? What drivers do I need for windows 7 32bit ?

Hello,

are there any drivers for the UMTS modem yet? (I didn't find any on the Toshiba download site) It's the only thing keeping me from using a 64 bit Vista Version on my Portege M700.

Could you (the Toshiba guys) please release the 64 bit Vista drivers for the Novatel UMTS modem?

Thanks in advance,

Matthias

Answer:Portege M700 - Novatell UMTS Modem drivers missing for Vista 64-bit

Hello

you are right. Novatel Wireless Mobile Broadband Drivers and TOSHIBA 3G RF Power Control Utility are not available but maybe you can check if Vista 64-bit recovery DVD exist for this notebook model.

Since updating from Win 8 Pro to Win 8.1 Pro the umts-modem-driver isn't working properly.
In the device manager he is marked with the yellow exclamation mark.

Where can I get a driver? In the download area I still only find x86 drivers for win8.1

You did not post any info about your notebook model but i presume that such drivers are not released if you did not find any on the Toshiba driver page.
But I think you should try the Win 8 driver since the 8.1 version isn?t very different as the Win 8

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

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.

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'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.

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.

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.

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...

Question: x200 tablet memory

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

Answer:x200 tablet memory

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

I have a 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.

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.

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.

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

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??? Which one should i get? I hope lenovo will allow sometime people from other countries to buy online from them because there are some countries that probably you will die or get very old before you can buy new stuff  thanksKonstantinosMessage Edited by kostasls on 11-18-2008 11:51 PMMessage Edited by kostasls on 11-18-2008 11:52 PM

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?

Answer:X200 tablet- two new motherboards

I should note that I have only connected a wireless mouse and USB flash drives to this port.

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

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

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?

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,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'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.&...

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

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!

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 ...

 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.

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.

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. Thanks edit: oh, and I checked in the BIOS. radios are turned on.

Answer:x200 tablet - wireless simply gone

i had this problem, it used to happen every week or so, then every day then it happened a few minutes after boot, or even seconds (sometimes before boot was even finished)  took out the 5100, put in a 5300, and everything's working again. should have chosen 5300 during BTO..

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

Answer:X200 Tablet International WWAN

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

yes I know my X200 Tablet is old..but its very loved... I was going to buy an X230T which I know had the digitizer pen available...but its just gone EOL.. So what is the equivalent model now? I have spent ages looking at the Lenovo site and cant see any reference to this aspect of the model.  The X240 doesnt seem to have the pen ...does anyone know if it does have it? Also can you downgrade it to Win 7 (Sorry Win 8 but youre not for me) Thanks in advance..

Answer:What is the current X200 Tablet Equivalent?

X230T was probably the latest X-series tablet (Lenovo does not offer at the moment a X240T).
 
You will have to look for the new "convertibles" like the Yoga series

Answer:X200s and X200 tablet - first look reviews are up

I wish this came out at the same time as the X200 as I would have ordered this instead.. Oh well. The X200 is the last Lenovo product I ever buy.. Nice products but this last experience with their delays and then not sending the proper invoices for all the express shipment is leaving a bad taste in my mouth so far. If apple ever comes out with the Iphone Tablet which uses the same touchscreen as in the iphone but with a more powerful proccesor and memory.... I'm sold... However till then this is the last IBM I will buy...

I finally got my X200 tablet the other day, but the key layout is driving me crazy, in particular the keys above the left and right arrows.  They seem to work as navigation forward and backward in Firefox, but aren't particularly useful to me.  Making them Home and End would be ideal.  I downloaded Sharp Keys and was able to remap the right control to Delete, but the navigation keys don't generte a scancode.  Is there another program that I can use to change these? **Edit**Oops, forgot to mention that I'm running Win7 Home Premium, but also have access to WinXP and Linux.
