Lenovo thinkpad edge e430 Can't connect to a Sony SRS-X7 Bluetooth Speaker

Question: Lenovo thinkpad edge e430 Can't connect to a Sony SRS-X7 Bluetooth Speaker

I bought a Sony SRS-X7 Blutooth speaker to get rid of the cables.The device works perfectly with several other devices: iphone, blackberry, an Asus tablet, but i havn't been able to make it work with my laptop.I was able to add the device. Was founded and recogniced by the laptop, but when almost finishing the process appears a message "Configuring bluetooth services" and stays there. I've tried to wait, even from one day to another, and the message remains there.After forcing to close this message window, the speakers figure between the bluetooth devices, but when trying to connect an "error establishing connection" message appears.I've tried to install the other driver available on the support site (an intel, this one is a Broadcom) with no results.Appreciate your help, as i'm seriusly thinking (don't want to) on replace the laptop. Best regards.

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:Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 3254 T1Q - Need suitable wifi driver

Hey there thiyagarajaner,
 
I believe you are using the ThinkPad 11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi card. Have you tried using the System Update Tool? This typically will instal the drivers that match your system. Hope this helps.
 
 
As an alternative there is also this driver, that may work in the even that the one from Broadcom does not.

I've had this Thinkpad Edge E430 since 2012 and have loved it, but recently I've been having a problem with it. In order to start it up I have to start it at least twice, and now it seems that the AC adapter must be plugged in for it to start.What will happen the first time or when it's just running on the battery is that the red indicator light will turn on, and I will hear the fan and the harddrive start up, but the screen will remain black and the computer will not respond to anything. When I have it plugged in and try the second time, it will start up no problem, and there doesn't seem to be any response issues once the laptop is up and running. I thought it might be a battery problem, but it has the same start up issues when I took out the batter and just had the AC adapter plugged in. Any ideas what this might be?

Because we've had the machine for 2 years, it's very difficult to find any information on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated: I confirmed that we purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad EDGE 0301CTO with bluetooth -- but until now, we have not ever tried to use it. [We're running Windows 7 [64-bit] on it.] There is no Bluetooth Control Panel with which to add a device [in our case, a bluetooth mouse]. The only information I can find lists using the Fn+F5 key to access a window to enable it [yet, this was for a different model]. Using these keys doesn't bring up any such window. I would suppose adding a bluetooth mouse would be much less of an ordeal than this is becoming. I must be missing something. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Answer:Lenovo ThinkPad EDGE 0301CTO - Enabling Bluetooth and Adding Bluetooth Devices

Hi, musesupport
 
If you enter the BIOS of your machine by tapping Enter at the splash screen (screen that says Lenovo while starting up), there should be a tab called Security. Open this tab and then select I/O Port Access. Is there a Bluetooth setting in this list? If so, is it set to Enabled?
 
If the Bluetooth is set to Enabled, then I would recommend making sure all the drivers (Bluetooth, BIOS, and chipset, in particular) are up to date. All drivers for your machine can be found here.
 
Good luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

Hi, I would like to buy a Lenovo Thinkpad. There are pretty good offers at the Outlet. I am not sure about the model that I should get. I am deciding between the L430 and the E430. While I have a preference for the L430, I have some concerns/questions: Regardless of the model choice, will a 14inch screen be enough for school and other stuff like watching movies?What are the advantages of the E430? Some models are priced higher than the L430. Background:I currently have a 15.6inch laptop. I think I want a smaller one as I need to carry my computer to school. The 15.6 inch is pretty heavy. However, I am very used to that format and a bit scared that a 14inch might be too small. E.g. if I work with Excel, Word, or Outlook. Although the L430 seems to be the more robust computer with the better specifications as compared to the E430, the L430 looks a bit old and it might not be as good as e.g. for watching movies. I want to use my computer both for school and free time. Thanks for your help! Yellow Squash

My laptop thinkpad Edge e430 is not powering up. When I plug in the AC cord the LED indicator does not turn on. I have checked the AC adapter with the multimeter and it gives 20 volt output. So the AC adapter is fine.  The laptop also does not power on with a fully charged batter. I have removed the HDD, Memory, Optical drive and the CMOS battery and then pressed the power button for 30 seconds. The laptop does not wake up.  It is quite weird as the laptop should show some kind of error So i may have an idea what is happening.  Discussing with people on other forums gives me an idea that the power setup of the laptop is faulty. Can some body here guide me to what the problem is and how can i fix it?

Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E440Windows 7 Professional 64 bit I just purchased the computer yesterday and, given a rather unstable wi-fi connection at my temporary residence, I tried to connect the computer to via the ethernet connection. Upon connecting, I lose all internet access. My older dell laptop operates nigh flawlessly on this connection, so it is something computer-side. Despite the fact that the connection shows as having internet access and the fact that I can pull up the full connection map (which is displaying all other computers on the LAN through to the internet connection) the minute I try to access the internet, nothing is able to load. This is the case for both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, as well as any background downloads, such as Steam.

I also installed Access Connections just to see if it might let me view a little more information about the connection (its connection test, though it shows having internet connection, fails), but I am unfamiliar with the program and do not know if it is helping or hindering me in this regard. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everyone, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 and it was working fine until today. Today I worked on the laptop as usual and just turned off the Fast Startup setting in the Windows 8 and then restarted the computer. Now it only shows a black screen (LCD backlights are on but there is nothing on the screen). I hear the usual BIOS beep sound but I can't see the BIOS screen or the Windows. I've tried to connect to a an external monitor via HDMI. Amazingly, both my laptop's screen and external monitor works fine when the laptop is connected to the external screen. But when I disconnect them, again I can only see the black screen. I turned on the Fast Startup settings in Windows 8, but it didn't work. Then I loaded the default settings from the BIOS and it didn't worked too. Finally I've installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS to test if it is because of the operating system but it didn't help too. I've tried all of this using the laptop's screen while it was connected to the external screen. It is very confusing for me. It seems like the screen is only working when an external screen is also connected to the laptop. I would be very happy if anyone can help me about this problem.

Hello everybody, this is my first post here as I just bought an Edge e430 from Lenovo.It came with Win 8 installed (let's skip this) and as I tried to connect to the LAN for verifying the license I realized that I did not have any network connection. No way to connect, no matter what I clicked and what I switched on/off.... no connection (even the local one). As I am a Linux user, after figuring out how to boot from CD I tried Linux on a Live CD to see whether it was a Win 8 issue or a card one. No connection there too. Trying to set up here and there I think I grasped the problem, however I does not make any sense to me. Is it possible that the new model is IPv6 only (with no IPv4 retrocompatibility). If this is the case (I repeat: it doesn't make sense) what should I do to make it working, at least in Win 8? Thank you very much for your time. P.S. Forgot to say that I don't have any WiFi to try.

Hi,I am looking to buy a lenovo laptop with the intention of using it mostly for word/excel applications, internet browsing and skype, and basic multimedia tasks (online video streaming, movies). The laptop's emissions (noise/heat) are key for me and by looking online, the E335 version seemed to be praised for its very low emissions and its low price.The only drawback is that it has the AMD E2 2000 processor, which performs much lower than its intel i3 counterparts.I wanted to check for your experience with the emissions of the E335, and whether the weaker processor would play a role in the performance of the laptop for the basic tasks intended.Also, I wanted to ask whether choosing the E430 version with intel i3 and would result in any drawbacks in terms of emissions.Thanks!loukianos

Answer:Choice between ThinkPad Edge E335 and E430

Hello. This is all a matter of budget and taste, plain and simple. In my experience, the AMD mobile APU's simply aren'ton par with the performance of the Core-i processors, and even when running the same clock speed as theirIntel counterparts, they run hotter, sometimes much hotter. They are a budget option though, and as such I guessthey will do their job adequately. Here is a comparison for the AMD E2-2000 vs the Intel i3-3110M Ivy Bridge. AMD E2-2000 vs Intel Core i3-3110M The difference is vast when it comes to available features and performance, but the AMD uses much less power,but that will be very apparent in its performance and will be a huge factor in how long the machine will last for youbefore you need to update it. My 2 cents is always go with the Intel Core-i option. They are very energy efficient, specially since the Ivy Bridgearchitecture was introduced, and the smallest i3's really are a powerful option for a day-to-day machine. And themachines that come with them aren't so much more expensive than the AMD powered machines. Lastly, have you checked out the new E440 models? The Haswell line of Intel CPU's is much more energy efficientthan the earlier Ivy Bridge models. ThinkPad E440 Laptop Cheers!

Hi everyone,About a year and a half ago I bought a ThinkPad Edge E430 and its been working fine, until last week when I got a terrible virus which really corrupted my computer. I've managed to remove the malware, but as a result the registry is still damaged. I cannot change folder options, my start menu is blank, all my files have been moved to a TEMP file among all these other issues. I've run multiple malware scanners and registry repair programs but these issues aren't resolving. So I'm thinking that I'll need to just reinstall windows 7, to completely repair the registry and ensure everything is back to normal. I've backed up all my files, but my concern is about the reinstallation itself.How could I do this when Windows 7 came preloaded onto the laptop, so I don't have the installation disk.And would the product key for windows 7 (found under the battery) definitely work a second time around?

Answer:Windows 7 reinstallation - ThinkPad Edge E430

Hi Cosmos29,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understood that your query is about reinstalling the Windows 7 OS on ThinkPad Edge E430.
When your computer is working normally, press the blue ThinkVantage button to launch the SimpleTap Program (for Windows 7) or the ThinkVantage Productivity Center program (for Windows XP and WindowsVista).
 
Note:
Depending on the date when your computer was manufactured, your computer might have the
Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox program preinstalled instead of the Simple Tap program or the ThinkVantage Productivity Centre program.
 
You also can use the ThinkVantage button to interrupt the start-up sequence of your computer and start the Rescue and Recovery workspace, which runs independently of the Windows operating system and is hidden from it. If the Windows operating system is not running properly, the Rescue and Recovery workspace can help you do the following:
 
? Get the current system information.
? Rescue a file from your Windows environment or restore back-up files, provided you have made backups
by use of the Rescue and Recovery program.
? Configure your computer or start the ThinkPad Setup.
To access the Rescue and Recovery workspace, turn on the computer; then, while the ?To interrupt normal start-up, press the blue ThinkVantage button? message is displayed at the lower-left of the screen, press the ThinkVantage button. The Rescue and Recovery screen opens. For additional information, see ?Us... Read more

Hi, I recently bought some Thinkpad EDGE E430 and E530 for my company. But one of them, at the first boot, instead of showing the first time Windows setup wizard it booted to Windows login with an already defined user named 'obe' and it ask for a password. I can't enter to Windows. I have tried to make 'factory settings' for resintalling Windows but the System Recovery Options always ask me for the password of 'obe' user. I called Lenovo support and the agent told me to use another E430 to produce a recovery DVD, so I made it (because I bought more E430 in the same order), but is the same, always asking for the password. Please see the picture. I need to give the laptop to one of my employees, he is goint to travel this next weekend and he need to take this laptop to the trip.

welcome to the community. press F1 when the first splash screen appears to get into bios. make sure that the cd/dvd drive is listed first in the boot order (or usb cd/dvd, if your machine doesn't have an internal). then put the recovery dvd in the drive and reboot the machine. it should load the recovery process from the dvd, rather than any hdd partition, and allow you to recover/reimage the machine. please post back if this doesn't work or if you have further ?s. cheers.

Hello to all, new one here to the forum. Well, title says it all... At first I think it was a problem with the way Linux suspends the machine, but now I realize it happens too when I suspend from Windows (I have dual boot with Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17 actually). It started making it sometimes, not always, but now always happens: I suspend, close the lid and put the notebook on my bag. Hours or even minutes later, when I want to use it again and open the lid, its shuts off right at that very moment. If I suspend and 2 minutes later resume with the notebook still on the table, everything goes fine... so I suspect it may be a time thing or bad contact with the battery, but really don't know. I'm reticent to bring it to tech service because of several reasons, so I want to share this and hope to hear if someone had the same problem and how fixed it, if it can be fixed. Oh, and sorry for my perhaps strange english, I'm argentinian.

Hi, I recently bought a 300Mbps Wireless N Router (TP-Link TL-WR841ND), but I only get 72 Mbps speed on my Thinkpad E430 laptop. As far as I read, the 1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter only supports speeds up to 150 Mbps (which would still be ok with me), but instead I get 72 Mbps. I tried to tweak the adapter and router settings, but I had no luck. Do I need to change the Wireless adapter? Is it possible to change it, or should I use an external USB Wireless adapter instead? Thank you!  

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E430 Wireless speed only 72Mbps

Hi Tudorc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I would suggest you to check if any other similar device is able to achieve better speeds.
 
Log to the router's configuration utility by typing its IP address into a browser and change the encryption settings to WPA2 Encryption Only. Choose 40MHz-wide channels in the router?s configuration utility.
 
Since you are using a 1x1 single-stream card, so a max of 150Mbps is theoretically said to achieve. In addition, you are only on the 2.4GHz band, which is often congested, so you may see lower speeds. The disparity between theoretical and practical Wi-Fi performance comes from network protocol overhead, radio interference, physical obstructions on the line of sight between devices, and distance between devices. Under ideal conditions, actual results for a wireless adapter rated at 150Mbps is perhaps in the range of 50-80Mbps.
 
Hope this provided enough clarity for your query!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

What is the benefit of a 16 GB Micro Solid State Drive, Serial ATA3 besides the regular HD..?

Answer:ThinkPad Edge E430 with Micro Hard Drive..?

the 16 gigs mSATA will be used as a large cache for the regular HD, much like what Intel Turbo memory was, but it will have better algorithms applied to predict usage pattern.

Hello! So I have a Lenovo laptop Thinkpad Edge E430. AVG Safe Search wanted to restart the laptop (I can't remember why, but probably just to make sure everything was okay).I did, and now when I turn the computer on normally, I get nothing but a black screen with a mouse, instead of the user icons.I can run it in Safe Mode, but I'd really like to be able to use my laptop normally, since a lot of things don't work in Safe Mode.Any ideas?(Thank you so much!!)

Hi I had ordered a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430. First, delivery was delayed by 1 week later when I checked the machine, mouse pad and track pad were not working. I tried reinstalling drivers, checked BIOS settings. There was no mention of Mouse & TrackPad in Control Panel. Atlast, I raised a case with Lenovo customer care.  It has been almost 2 weeks, nothing is moving. Any time I call, same response they arr investigating the root cause. I am fed up with this service. I would suggest to others please think twice before falling into Lenovo trap. -Amit

The recent BIOS update (version 2.54) which has been released to fix fan issues with the system, does not have a corresponding Bootable CD available. I need to upgrade my computer's BIOS but doing that from a Windows partition is not possible as I do not use that OS. The update download page (http://support.lenovo.com/en_IN/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS033264&rss=true#) links to an older version BIOS Bootable disk update. Is there a way through with I can obtain a Bootable version of the flashing utility. Maybe there is a tool to create Bootable CD via the windows executable?

I'm looking to get a larger hard drive for my Thinkpad Edge E430, and I have two questions. The current drive is a Toshiba MK5061GSY - SATA 300. It's 0.4 inches high. I'm looking at a WD Green WD20NPVX - SATA 600. It's 0.6inches high. What size is the HDD bay? Will a drive that's 0.6 inches high fit?Is a SATA 600 drive backwards compatible with a SATA 300 port?Thanks.

Answer:Size of hard drive bay for Thinkpad Edge E430? and SATA 300 vs 600

Ivy Bridge CPU in the E430 supports SATAIII (6 Gb/s) for the main hdd and optical drive bay. The height of the E430 hdd bay is suitable for 7 and 9.5 mm (not sure what that equates to in inches).

I read through the manual and am confident that I can take apart the machine, replace the cracked screen and put it back together. I replaced hinges in my old HP and a motherboard in my friends HP. My father was able to get me a great deal on this machine I have now. I put in some extra ram and a 32gb SSD for RapidBoot and I'm pretty much in love. I take great care of it but had an accident and dropped/cracked the screen. 
 
The laptop was ordered custom so its a bit more of a challenge to find specific information on what the part #'s are. The laptop has working microphones but was not purchased with a webcam which I regret. I would like to replace the LCD panel and install an integrated camera in one fell swoop. 
 
My questions are: What model number of LCD panel so I need. What model number of camera do I need. And lastly, will I need to purchase a new LCD cable that has the ability to plug into the camera? Or does my current LCD cable have a lone male cable plug waiting for a camera?
 
Machine Type: 3254
Serial #: xxxxxxx
CPU: i5-3210
HDD: 7200rpm 320gb
Came with 4gb of RAM
 
Thanks so much! Any advice here would be appreciated

Hi, I was wandering about replacing my current cpu with something more powerful. I-3110m is ok but, i'm doing some work in Matlab and Solidworks, and sometimes my cpu chokes. The only thing that stops me from buying new cpu is heating of new cpu. i3-3110m is 35W TDP, so as i7-3612/32QM but they are incredibly hard to find in good prices. on the other hand there is i7-3610Qm which is easily found but runs on 45W TDP. Question is: How much hotter can my laptop get? Maybe someone has E430 with i7-3610qm?

Hi, I've bought a brand new ThinkPad E430 (i3, 4 GB RAM) with Windows 8 64 bit preinstalled. While the machine works great (my only complaint is a short battery life - only 3 hours or so on "Balanced" plan with no serious tasks on), it doesn't want to connect to my Asus RT-G32 (Rev. B1) router (only B/G modes are supported). The router is 100% error free (I have several phones and computers on it and everything works fine), but my newest computer simply doesn't work with it. It does connect, but only "partly". Some websites work, but after a while, they stop working, and Gmail Talk and Skype, for example, never connect while on Wi-Fi (on cable, everything works flawlessly). I've tried just about every router setting (channels, wireless mode set to "54G only", changing from WPA to WPA2 login, etc.) and I've played with Win 8 cared settings (N mode disabled, only G mode enabled), but nothing seems to work for more than a few minutes. Now everything is back on default and I'm on cable again. Could somene please advise if there is anything else to try? Btw, I've connected the computer on N router at my girlfriends place, and it works good. It only refuses to work on my G router. Thanks and kind regards,Henrik

Answer:ThinkPad E430 - Can't Connect to a G Router

Hi, lemming2030
 
I would recommend to make sure that the drivers in your machine are up to date, particularly the wireless LAN and the BIOS. Having these updated may help your issue. All possible driver updates for your machine can be found here. You can use the dropdown menus to sort by device type and operating system to make searching faster.
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

I recently purchased a Sony SRS-X11 Bluetooth speaker (recommended by Which Magazine).
I have not been able to find a Windows driver to connect this speaker to my operating system. Can any one help or have any suggestions.

I have purchased a Bluetooth dongle which appears to be working fine: the system recognises the speaker through the dongle but when I run the set up, the system says it is looking for software updates to complete the process but that is as far as it goes because I get an error message informing me that software can not be found. I have also contacted Sony and they can't help and told me to search online for a Windows driver.

Answer:Driver needed to run Sony Bluetooth speaker

The bluetooth "dongle" market is a very complicated one and is full of a lot of low quality products which are often not supported, you could, ( if you can discover the information because your hardware is from a major manufacturer ), try contacting the dongle manufacturer, but these are often small 3rd world or far east companies, that appear and disappear overnight. The additional software the dongle is looking for could easily be something from a long gone affiliate of the hardware manufacturer, as it was normal for these devices to use free libraries of functions, which are no longer available.

there is a company called BlueSoleil, the most easy-to-use, innovative and interoperable Bluetooth software, Bluetooth driver which is a major player in the blue tooth market (though not a driver only source) which my support your dongle though this may mean additional costs. best way would IMHO the return the dongle and purchase something from one of the major suppliers

Edit

The following is a list of the main chipset manufacturers for Bluetooth - if you can find out the name of the Chip in your device you may be able to obtain drivers direct from one of these companies although some do not deal direct with the public it may be worth a try ( search for the company support site as the links are email addresses of sales contacts)

Hi
I have a Pure Jongo S3 wireless speaker, it has a bluetooth dongle in the back, as does my laptop. Until recently, I was able to view the Jongo in "My Bluetooth Devices" and connect to it using A2DP and stream my laptop music to the speaker with no problems.
All of a sudden, I can no longer connect to the speaker. The laptop still detects the Jongo, and shows it as a device in "My Devices" but when I try to connect to it, a progress bar comes up, then disappears, having failed to establish a connection.
I know the speaker is working because I can connect by smartphone to it using bluetooth and stream music from my phone. I know that the bluetooth adaptor on the laptop is working too, because I can connect my phone to the laptop and stream/send files via bluetooth.
Given that both devices are physically working, I can only assume I have somehow messed up the software, or changed the settings.
I have updated all drivers for relevant devices and my laptop is fully updated. It is a HP Pavillion 15-n032sa running Windows 8.1. The bluetooth adaptor is an Inateck 4.0 USB (Model No. BTA-CSR4B5. I have re-installed all the software and drivers with no success.
Any ideas? All help very much appreciated.

Your machine should have Bluetooth capability. I would first recommend making sure the driver for your Bluetooth device is up to date, which can be found here.
 
Once that is updated, you should be able to scan for devices by navigating to Settings ? Change PC settings ? Devices and selecting Add a device. If your goal is to connect your computer and mobile phone together, then make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile phone. If you continue to lack the Add a device in this menu, could you please take a screenshot with Snipping Tool and post it here?

Answer:Does my ThinkPad Edge come with bluetooth?

hello there,Yes, as a matter of fact, it does. I faced the exact same problem today.Click the "Wireless connections" button (shared with F9), a large-ish window called "Wireless radios" will appear.Pull down the arrow next to "Individual control" just below. You will probably see that 802.11 Wireless is green but Bluetooth is greyed out. Click it, it should turn green.If you're lucky (I wasn't), your device manager will say that the BT is right there and running. If you have a warning sign next to it, though, this is what you need to do:Right-click the BT entry, select "update driver" and wait until it finds, downloads, and installs new drivers. For me, the whole process took about 2-3 minutes.After that, your BT should become fully active, and you will be able to connect your mouse / printer / phone / whatever.Good luck,wyrm

Hey guys,
I just bought a Bose SoundLink mini Bluetooth speaker and simply can't get it connected with my XPS 15 9550 / Windows 10 Pro. The pairing works, but the connection cannot be established. Hence it is shown in "Playback Devices" as disconnected. Also, under "Devices and Printers" the SoundLink appears and I can edit its properties but it's only paired and not connected. In the Windows Bluetooth manager it says something like "That didn't work. Please ensure that your bluetooth device can be found and try again".
I already uninstalled the bluetooth driver and reinstalled it (Killer Wireless-AC 1535 Bluetooth Driver). The other driver (Dell Wireless 1550/1560/1704/1708/1820A/1830 Bluetooth Driver) promts and error message when being installed but as far as I can see its not designed for XPS models anyway.
Would be really glad if someone is able to help me out here. Connecting via aux cable is not an option..
Cheers!

Answer:Bluetooth Speaker is Paired, but Can't Connect.

If I suggested you change your card, would you think about it?  I just ordered one of those cards, so I may know more Wed. or Thur..  Places to get one are limited and it was twice as expensive as my Intel card, which tells me the card may not be fully compatible.  Of course I do not know that for sure.
Have you tried turning off just Wi-Fi to see if it helps?
On the Settings-Devices-Bluetooth page, you can select the device and choose connect?  Pay special attention to the tones generated during certain operations as they may give you a clue as to what is happening.  Not all Bluetooth devices behave the same when pairing or connecting.

I'm trying to connect my Durawaves Glow XL bluetooth speaker to my hp chromebook 11-v020nr and the connection fails every time. I have successfully connected the speaker to my phone so I know the speaker works. I've also tried a second, identical speaker but the chromebook won't connect to it either. The specs for both the chromebook and the speakers say they are Bluetooth 4.0. Usually what happens is that I click on the speaker in the bluetooth list and the connection just fails. Sometimes a box will pop up with a series of numbers in it asking me to verify the numbers. The speaker has no display of any kind so there is no place to verify the number on the speaker so I just click accept on the box. After several seconds I get any authentication failed error message. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot connect my laptop to an external Bluetooth speaker. When I try to add the device, it detects the speaker but connecting fails. I tried turning WiFi off while doing that and didn't help. I have installed the latest Bluetooth driver. The message stays as "Connecting" for a long time and eventually fails with "Try Connecting your device again" message. Any help is appreciated.

After upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 is problem with sending files from my HTC ONE X phone to NTB via bluetooth. I reinstalled driver, I can browse my phone from my ThinkPad, but if I want to send file from my phone, nothing is happened, telephone is waiting for user request (in Win 8 notebook asked me for receiving file). In attachment is receiving Window - it is no chance to confirm of file receiving.
Will Lenovo do new driver for BT or any other solution?
Thanks

Hello Lenovo community! I've had a Thinkpad for years now - it's old enough it still says IBM Thinkpad - and it's time for a new computer, so I'll be ready against the sad day this one can't handle what I need anymore. I've narrowed it down to two Thinkpads, but I can't decide between them or see what the differences between them are. Perhaps someone here knows?The two are the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 627156U and the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 3254AEU. They both have 4 gigs of RAM and 500 gigs of Hard Drive space, though I think the 56U has a chiclet keyboard and the AEU has beveled. Does anyone know if the 56U has a full sized keyboard despite being chiclet? (I'm a writer, so the keyboard is a deal maker or breaker. It's also why I'm looking at 14" screens - all the 15.6" ones have that number pad and the keyboard shoved to the side. All I can see is that the keyboards are "Spill resistant", which doesn't tell me the size of the keys.)Does anyone have any knowledge of these two machines? Or even opinions on the two?

Answer:What's the difference? Thinkpad E430 56U vs Thinkpad E430 AEU

Hey there ChangelingChild,
 
I found this threadhere that may of be some interest to you. I see in the PSRef that both machines you are looking at come with a 6-row, spill resistant, multimedia FN keys keyboard. Where are you seeing a beveled keyboard? Generally they are island style/chiclet full sized keyboards. I'm certain some our E430 users should have some feedback as well.
 
E430: 6271-56U
i5-3210M(2.5Ghz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HD, 14in 1366x768 LCD, Intel HD 4000 Graphics, CDRW/DVDRW, 802.11bgn wireless,Bluetooth, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Fingerprint reader, Camera, 6c Li-Ion, Win7 Pro 64
 
E430: 3254-AEU
i5-2450M(2.5GHz), 4GB RAM,500GB 7200rpm HD,14in 1366x768 LCD,Intel HD 3000 Graphics,CDRW/DVDRW,Intel 802.11bgn wireless,Bluetooth,1Gb Ethernet,UltraNav,Fingerprint reader,Camera,6c Li-Ion,Win7 Pro 64 
 
It looks like the Primary difference between the machines lay with the processor, it's compatibility with RAM modules, and the integrated graphics. The 3210M appears to out perform the 2450M but you will need to take a look at this and see for yourself of the impact to your day to day performance/usage. You can see more indepth information when looking at the PSRef and comparing the two.
 
I hope this provides some information to help guide you in your decision. Good Luck, and keep us posted on your progress.

Hallo! Verkacktes Windows 10 Creators Update, seit der Installation des Creators Updates auf meiner Thinkpad P70 Workstation hakt, ruckelt und hat meine Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser Mouse Aussetzer. Sämtliche neuen Treiber von Lenovo und auch Treiber die Windows Update gezogen hat, bzw. Treiber direkt von der Intel Homepage für das Intel 8260 Bluetooth bringen keine Lösung. Ein Auswechseln der Batterien hilft auch nichts. Also vermute ich, dass einfach eine frühere Treiberversion des Bluetooths für das Thinkpad P70 die Probleme des Ruckeln am Thinkpad P70 lösen. Wo bekomme ich die Lenovo Treiber für das Bluetooth am P70 für Win 10 64 bit her?Auf der Lenovo Treiberseite sind nur mehr die aktuellen verfügbar. Bitte um Hilfe.

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser Mouse hakt und ruckelt seit Creators Update am Thinkpad P70 ...

I got the same problem.... But first let me translate this for everybody here.  My P70 (or in my case P71) has a problem to keep the connection estimated between the Lenovo mouse and my Laptop. Got the current driver installed.  The German guy above me got the same issue after the creators update.   I set everything Bluetooth related in Device Manager up to NOT let windows turn of the device to save power.  The mouse cuts out for 5 sec and comes back on. If you turn the mouse upside down during that time I noticed that the battery led toggles on and off. So it reboots. So I assume it's driver related to because it worked perfectly fine before on the L530 guys machine.

I have been trying to connect my laptop (Acer Aspire 4710Z - Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit) to my Bluetooth Speaker (IBall Tarang V7).

But can't do the same.

In the device list it is showing the speakers added, but when i check the properties it shows bluetooth peripheral device driver missing.

I tried searching the drivers in google but didn't get the right stuff.


Please help me!!!!!!

Answer:How can i connect my Acer Aspire 4710Z to bluetooth Speaker

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... Have you tried Update Driver to see if Windows can find a Driver for the Device ? ...

I have searched on the Iball Website does not seem to be any Drivers or even Information available about your Model ...
I even looked at some other Models they do not seem to have any Drivers either ...
So i read some of the Manuals they only had a brief description nothing else ..
I did notice though they do have a Support section ...

I sent in my laptop because the speakers were playing music choppy. I was told that it would take up to 6 business days for me to get it back. I received my laptop back within 2 days with a sheet saying certain tests passed. I used my laptop and the problem was still there. I spoke to tech support who said that the matter was being sent to the escalation department and I would receive a return label. I sent my laptop in for a second time for the same reason and mentioned that my laptop did not recognize that headphones were being inserted into the laptop. I did not hear back from them for 2 weeks. I ended up calling them and was told that the matter was in fact never escalated. Obviously frustrated, I requested that I be sent a brand-new laptop, which the Lenovo employee agreed with and accepted. I expected a phonecall from a Customer Relations employee (as mentioned to me by tech support) who would confirm the original specs of my laptop so an identical, brand-new one would be sent to me. Instead, I received a voicemail saying that my laptop had been shipped "repaired" and that I would receive a phonecall at the end of the week to see how it was operating. This voicemail completely disregarded my conversation with the Lenovo employee I spoke with before. I never received that phonecall, which was supposed to be made by last Friday (3/22/2013). I received my original laptop, tried to use it, and found that the problems still existed.

3 days ago I purchased an edge E520 1143 AK7. I installed Windows Home Basic on it and then updated it to latest date upgrades. Then I installed all the drivers and Thinkvantage ulitiies. The machine is just amazing. However, the bluetooth hardware itself is not found on the machine. The vendor who sold me the machine was very cooperative. He booted another machine to find out if a bluetooth exists on the machine or not. Unfortunately, even the service center person is facing the same problem. luetooth not found. I doubted that my machine either does not have a Bluetooth OR it is a manufacturing defect. I called Lenovo service center and they confirmed that my model DOES SUPPORT A HIGH SPEED BLUETOOTH. Manufacturing defect is ruled out as a second machine is also having the same problem. Therefore, I am doing something wrong. Some driver seems to be missing. Can anyone please help me with the issue?

Hi, My Lenovo ThinkPad Edge S430 is listed in the "supported W8" systems, http://shop.lenovo.com/gbweb/gb/en/learn/products/ee8/index.html But what is "Lenovo Enhanced Experience 8"? Should be some software available? Should be something available? So far, I got my hands over some drivers (card reader, hotkey, active protection system) and little more. Should something else be installed in the notebook to improve it's performance?

Hi All, I've recently re-installed  an e320 and have got stuck with enabling bluetooth stereo audio functionality. I'd like to use my philips headphones with my laptop but when pairing I just get headset settings and they never show up as an audio device. Do I need to install an extra driver or profile to use Bluetooth Stereo Audio specifically? Where do I find it of so and any other tips if not?Thanks.

Answer:How to turn on bluetooth and camera in Thinkpad Edge E420 model 1141-2NQ

Hi dyadava and welcome to the forum,
 
F9 turns the bluetooth on and off.
 
To use the camera, you have to use an application like Skype or Windows Live Messenger, or Yahoo Messenger or something like that.
