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.

Greetings,I have recently purchased a ThinkPad Edge e545, which I upgraded to Windows 8.1. I have followed all the instructions, upgrading drivers and such. The system seems to work great except for one thing. In Device Manager, I see there is one Unknown Device, which does not appear to match any available driver downloads on the Lenovo support section (I have tried them all). The information for this device is as follows: Device Instance: ACPI\SMB0001\3&2411E6FE&0Hardware ID: ACPI\VEN_SMB&DEV_0001 Goggle searching turns up a mixed-bag of conflicting information, and links to less than reputable driver files which my spider-sense tells me would be best to not install. Help would be appreciated. The device reappears if it is uninstalled.. And I have also tried the SMBus Windows 7 driver, which has no apparent effect. Thanks,~{Ultima}~

Hi, I received my IBM ThinkPad T22 from Tigerdirect yesterday. And I'm likin it for the most part, I do have a problem tho, I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows 2000 on it, I went into device manager and found all the unknown devices except for one and downloaded and installed those drivers fine, but theres still one left that I don't know anything about, Its labeled as an unknown device, when i right click it and hit properties I don't get any brand information or IRQ or anything, So far when I use the laptop I am not having any problems with hardware that I have found yet, the only information I get is the location of the device:

on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller

I do not get any more information from device manager, I can run everest and find all the hardware on the machine if that would help anyone determine what this might be, any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

One more yellow ? to go.  Thanks to the good advice rampant on this forum, I was able to figure out how to install the other drivers I needed.   This last one is messing with my mind tho.  It's unfair for a problem to not even have a name, doncha think?   About all I can fathom about this 'Unknown device' is its location:  'on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller'. I tried the driver for 'Embedded Controller' and when I double click, it takes over the computer and tells me not to shut it down and begins installing 49 fixes.  When I did it, the program got to the 21st fix, and that was as far as it would go.  I shut down the computer after about 20 minutes.  It did not remove the 'Unknown device' remark in Device Manager. What's a poor boy to do? Also, Windows is taking forever to load. This was not the case yesterday.  Thanks for all your help. 50GreenDodge in Phoenix

Answer:What is my 'Unknown device' in Device Manager? - ThinkPad T40 2374-75U

Hello, Have you tried installing the Lenovo System Update software to see if that detects any missing device drivers and offers to install it for you? The latest versions for your ThinkPad T40 Model 2374-75U can be found here on Lenovo's web site. If if that does not work, you could try going back into the Device Manager (filename: DEVMGMT.MSC), selecting the Unknown Device to view its properties and then go to the Details tab, where you should see several values listed in the property sheet for things like "Device Description", "Hardware IDs",  "Compatible IDs" and so forth.  Try using these as search terms in your favorite search engine to see if doing so leads you to a more detailed description of the device, including a manufacturer, brand, model or part number. Once you have that information, it may be easier to find the appropriate device driver for the unrecognized hardware. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky

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.

So I just installed WIndows 8 on my e430, I have a few drivers missing which System Update cannot fix.
 
PCI Device (VEN_10EC DEV_4229)
Unknown Device
 
I had one more which I forget how it showed up, I found the driver which was the Intel Management Engine Interface.
Figured I'd start this thread to a) Help me and  b) help anyone else with an e430 installing Win 8.
 
The only think I've noticed that doesn't work is the fingerprint scanner.  Otherwise, it's not so obvious.
 
The PCI Device came up as Realtek PCIE Card Reader Driver for Windows 8 (64-bit) - Notebook
 
I however cannot get a download link for the file. It just doesn't appear in the support site.
 
 
**EDIT***Unknown device was Power Management.  Got that one done, all that's left is the Realtek card reader.

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. 

Answer:New Thinkpad Edge E430 came with a Windows user and cannot login (who is 'obe' ???)

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.

No wifi module displayed in device manager (Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 in X201 ThinkPad on Win7-64bit Professional) I recently bought a lenovo x201 thinkpad which required a fresh install of its original os, windows7-64bit professional (OEM). I used the applications and drivers disc, and os recovery disc that were sent to me from lenovo.  My ethernet module worked out of the box. I could find and update it in device manager - network adapters, however, I can't see the device name for the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300. I have tried the following sites and methods http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x20...(In debugging i have tried to install the following, rebooting each time)-Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software II for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad-Intel Wireless LAN (bg, abg, abgn) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - ThinkPad (I tried running the .exe's and it was the same as pressing fnf5 really, no wifi on/off)  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X201-wireless-problems-Intel-802-11agn-wirele...  I have tried turning the wifi/wimax variable on in bios - networks.

Answer:No wifi module in device manager (Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 in X201 ThinkPad)

Hi, tourmaline, and welcomeAs you mentioned wlan antennas, you disassembled laptop and saw wifi adapter installed. Isn't it? Is the label on the adapter "Intel 6300" exactly? Has the adapter been factory preinstalled or did you install it yourself?Is there unknown device in the Device Manager (definitely, wifi adapter is absent in the Network adapters section)?

I just got my thinkpad and it takes foreverrr to start up because of the bloatware installed on it. Can anyone list me the programs that I can delete that will not harm my computer.Thanks

Answer:Thinkpad E430 Bloatware

You can run Microsoft Fixit and it will run a scan and prompt you to disable programs (it will list programs that that you can turn off) from running at startup or you can let it automatically select the startup programs that are slowing the process.

Hi All, I just bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430(3254-1B6) but I am not able to turn it on if I install the battery and even I am not able start it on direct power supply using the adaptor(After removing the battery). My Vendor told me to charge the battery for 12 hours. My vendor also told me that ThinkPad laptop does not start without battery. Please let me know what may be the actual problem with my laptop.

Answer:Not able to turn on Thinkpad E430

Hi, charankalcut
 
If the machine will not start when the AC adapter is plugged in with or without the battery, and there are no lights or sounds, then I think this system has a faulty systemboard.  One thing you can try is to remove the batter and the AC adapter from the machine and then hold down the power button for thirty seconds. This will remove all power from the machine. Once complete, put the battery back in, connect the AC adapter and try to turn it on again. If there are no lights, sounds, or other signs of power, then it sounds like a bad systemboard, in which case I would either contact the vendor or Lenovo support at 1800-3070-7555 or 1800-425-2666. Also, if plugged in, the system should be able to work without the battery.
 
Best,
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

Last night my laptop was perfectly okay .... any help will be very much appreciated .... Thank You  Piping

Answer:Thinkpad E430 failed to power on

Not to be a Harbinger of ill-tidings, but this sounds similar to the wide-spread problems Lenovo had with the 420 and 520 series. I owned an Edge 520, which was subsequently replaced by lenovo with my current E530, after shipping the e520 machine to the service center in Tenn. 5 separate times. Rumor has it that the 420 and 520 suffered from a design flaw in their Systems-Board (Mother-Board), causing them to do-away with the 20's series and re-designing the Systems-Board of the 430 and 530 Series. I certainly hope that yours is an isolated case, and furthermore that it is easily remedied. This reply is basically an FYI, and I send it with hopes that when your system is repaired it never recurs. Every time I shut off my E520, I never knew if it would power-on the following day......fruhlpmd.......

This is my first post here, I'm new, don't know a ton about computers. Had a Toshiba for 4 years and it was horrible. Just opened my brand new ThinkPad E430 yesterday and did set-up. Ordered from Lenovo and had the following upgrades added:1) 500GB HDD (7200 rpm?)2) intel Core i5 3200 or 3210 something...3) 16GB mSATA SSD4) Has windows 75) 8GB RAMI'm not sure what else, just wanted this thing to be speedy, but have optimum battery life. Everything seems to be going alright, and this is only the 3rd time I've turned it on. But I notice the task manager says it's running like 130 processes at startup and right now it's running 112 and that's about where it stays. I don't know a lot, but I do know that's quite a bit more than my old desktop and previous laptop ran at any point. On average, it stays at 3% CPU and 33% Physical memory. My main concern is a solid balance between peak performance and battery life. My old computer took nearly 6 minutes to boot up and that is no joke. This will be used mainly for school work, no games, movies, etc. just a lot of typing on a lot of papers and frequent access to online databases I use for research information.  My question to those who can help...Is there something I can do to lower the number of processes?

Answer:New ThinkPad E430 - well over 100 processes running

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
I have routinely checked the Blackviper site for information regarding Windows services and processes, from XP through Win7. I haven't played around enough with Win8 in this respect yet, though.
 
Most all Windows-specific items are explained well, and recommendations for optimal / safe settings are given. Even if you choose to make no changes to your configuration, there is a wealth of information for general consumption contained there. Please note that you may not find information regarding OEM-specific services or processes. If you have questions on those, please post them in the Community and, hopefully, members will be able to offer useful advice.

Hello, I just bought a new Lenovo Edge E430 laptop with intel i5 Ivy Bridge and I want to know how the battery must be formatted for the first time? How long it should stay plugged for a correctly charge and for working properly? The PC must be connected all the working time, or only when battery dies? Thank you.

Answer:Formatting the battery for ThinkPad E430

As with any Lithium Ion battery the best advice is to fully charge (100%) the battery first. Then use it at least once a month down to where the notebook will be forced into hibernation. Then fully charge it. Otherwise charge as needed.The problem is that if you don't do what I call a full drain/full charge your battery can develop early signs of not fully charging. Also it helps reset your battery meter to better estimate life. I use my E430 a lot on outlet power so I try and remember to sometimes work on battery for a while to do a full discharge and recharge.

HiI own a Thinkpad E430(type 3254). It's about 14 months old. Yesterday, it randomly started having an issue with it's keyboard. It acts like the enter key is continuously pressed, and about 1 sec after I hit any other key it stops. The enter key by itself has stopped working, and only shorts sometimes and results in a continuous press. As soon as i boot, enter input is given and normal startup gets interrupted. If i press any key, it's normal again until an OS loads. For example, if i boot into debian, line breaks get inserted between the console messages that are displayed until i press a key, and if i boot windows, it gets stuck at the login screen because enter is given without the correct password so it loops. This behavior also happens sometimes randomly while working normally. The keyboard hasn't even seen heavy usage, or any drink spills. I usually keep the laptop at my desk, and use an external keyboard. The last time I took it out was 2 weeks ago.  Has anyone faced this issue before? I doubt it can be a software issue, so do I need a new keyboard? Thanks for the assistance.

Answer:Thinkpad E430 Keyboard Issue

ook so no one knows or no one bothered. anyway, i solved it and i'll leave it here.i called up lenovo's helpline, and they told me to remove ac power and the battery, and then keep the power button pressed for 2x30 seconds. Apparently, that drain static charge on the motherboard. That helped but only for a few minutes. Last night, i drained out the battery to 5% and now the issue is gone. I've recharged to 100% and the system is normal. I don't know what caused this, but it might have something to do with the lenovo power manager, which i recently installed.

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.

The keyboard on my laptop will type any character i press for ever, wherever text can be entered. If i open up a browser, and the first thing i type is w it will keep going "wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww....." It does this with any key, that is a letter or a number. It does not stop unless i restart it. The only reason i typed this up is because i used a usb keyboard. It works fine unless i press any key on the laptop's keyboard.

Answer:Thinkpad E430 Keyboard typing by itself

The only thing I can think of, is try creating a new user and see if it happens there.  If it still does, make yourself a linux live cd, and see if it does it there.  If it does, then it is for sure the keyboard and warraty that sh*t!  If not it is software based, and you need to clean that computer!

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

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

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that display is not working properly in your Lenovo ThinkPad E430.
 
I would suggest you to perform Flee Power ? remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer. Put the system to sleep and check if it wakes up normally.
 
Try connecting to an external monitor and check if display comes properly in it. Swap the battery and AC adapter with a good known one if you can.
 
Please let me know the happenings!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

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

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 I have an Thinkpad E430 laptop which has a HD4000 graphics card and comes with an VGA and HDMI output. I'm trying to set up 2 external displays with my built in display as in 1 vga, 1 hdmi, 1 built in display so that I can view my work over 3 screens. Unfortunately I'm can only choose 2 of the options for example Monitor + Built in displayMonitor + Digital displayBuilt in display + Digital display etc. So no option to choose all three. Is there a way to get all three options or is this a limitation of the laptop? Thanks

Answer:ThinkPad E430 [No supported wireless adapters.

Hey Syl4s,
 
Did you try running System Update and see if it can find your wireless driver update? I know you said you looked and downloaded drivers for your wireless device. I think you are still missing one and a good way to check is under device manager. If you look under networking you will see if any devices are missing drivers with what looks to be yellow triangle with a ! in the middle.
 
If you want to try to download the drivers for WAN only here is a link:

I purchased a Thinkpad E430 in May this year, personally. Generally I don't postreviews, but this product deserves it.First of all, as a developer, my reasons for purchase of the machine were to geta computer with a decent keyboard and build quality better than the generalconsumer products. I don't have many complaints with the keyboard. The mediakeys should not be activated by `fn` key instead of the function keys. Butconsidering the hardware and build quality, E430 fails miserably.I expected my E430 to hold up for a year at least, but it isn't designed forthat apparently. This is the case when it was not my primary computer, I spendabout 80% of my time on the office computer. The laptop just degrades whilesitting there it seems.It has been about 200 days and so far, there have been 3 hardware servicerequests processed on the machine: Dead pixels on screen, dysfunctionalmicrophone and then a broken case (probably because of the previous 2services). Plus there is the faulty BIOS, which issue(http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Edge-S-series/Fn-key-legacy-mode-is-unreliable/td-p/865927)has been ever pending.All this was fine until a few days back, when I realized the screen hasdeveloped a permanent spot in the middle - because of the way the screen andkeyboard are placed. I haven't been able to find time to place another servicerequest. Plus the behaviour of the people at the lenovo center is just soterrible that I am reluctant to visit them.I have owned 4 laptops from other ... Read more

Answer:Thinkpad E430: Is this some kind of a practical joke?

Im described as a thinkpad evangalist but I too agree with this disregard for the brand. Having owned multiple thinkpads over the years its very obvious that there is no longer care for build quality and / or knowledge on the phone. My X230T was plaqued with simple issues and phone support was laughable - the bottom line is to never let lenovo service your machine but to keep trying to get them to send you a unit that isnt broken.  Ive had lenovo say things are warrentable one day and not the next. My brand new TPY arrived with the screen bezel popped off in the right hand corner - this isnt a warrentable issue!? and the laptop itselve is plagued with driver / sleep errors rending the trackpad frozen / disconnected for large periods of time. All these issues would be resolved if someone in the factory took 5 seconds to look at the machine, or support to atually note down the failures that we are telling them about over the phone rather than mockingly being told that the "head engineer" doesnt regard xxxxx as a failure.

Answer:Battery Threshold Problem On Thinkpad E430

It does appear that you have a good working knowledge of the Battery Reset Function.  But if all the steps are followed it should have resolved your issue.  I am listing the steps for resetting the Battery Gauge and I would like for you walk through the steps one more time.  If this does not work then we can look  a little deeper to find the issue.
 

Resetting the battery gauge
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/diagnose-and-fix/detail.page?DocID=HT003431#reset

After the battery firmware is updated, the full charge capacity will be reset to the battery's design capacity. Because of this, it is recommended that a battery fuel gauge reset be performed after the update is complete. This will update the full charge capacity to an accurate value. If this is not done, the battery may report a sudden drop in the estimates of remaining percentage and remaining time once the battery is nearly empty even after updating the firmware. To perform the fuel gauge reset:

Start Power Manager by double-clicking the fuel gauge displayed in the lower right portion of the screen.
Select Advanced in Switch to: view.
Click the Battery tab.
Click Battery maintenance.
Click Perform Reset.
Follow the instructions on the screen.

After the reset is complete, the battery gauge will be calibrated.
If Power Manager is not installed or no Battery Maintenance button is available in Power Manager, the battery gauge can be reset by the following instructions.

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.

At the current time the latest 3rd generation of Intel Core i3 and i5 processors are not available, though we expect that will change in the coming months.

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.

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.

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.

Answer:E430 Device Driver Problems

Hey there pmor1945 and welcome to the forums!
 
To better assist you with what we are looking at, what version of windows are you currently using? Are these problems recent? Do you know if you had any updates to drivers, software or utilities when is started? If you will also provide your machine type and model number, it is a 7 digit alphanumerical code found on the sticker on the underside of your machine.
 
What we immediately know about Code 19 from Microsoft:
 
Code 19
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. This can occur when more than one service is defined for a device, if there is a failure opening the service subkey, or if the driver name cannot be obtained from the service subkey. To fix this problem you can first try running a Troubleshooting Wizard. If that does not work, you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (An alternative here is to backup to a previous point on the computer when the error was not occurring.)

Dear All,   My Lenovo E430 notebook's battery automatically drained to 96%(even if Battery was fully charged to 100%) and then power on with  AC after 4 hours . After one day later, the battery dropped to 94%. So I sent it  to Lenovo service center, and the battery was replaced by new one.  But it seemed that battery drain symphom was not to fix, the new battery also drained again after 7 days( the case was same as the original one). I don't know why, does the battery of E430 model have the battery problem ?   Who can help me, PLEASE ? VERY TROUBLE !

Answer:E430 Thinkpad - Battery drain automatically even if unit is powered off.

Hi, Sunnyleung
 
Lenovo power manager gives users the power to change their battery threshold settings. The battery threshold determines at what percentage of battery life the battery will stop and resume charging. For example, a user wants to have their battery charge only when life is 50% or below. If the user plugs in their computer and the battery life is greater than 50%, then the battery will not charge. This may be your issue, and I firstly recommend making sure the settings in power manager are correct. Here are the steps to do that:
 

Start Power Manager by double-clicking the fuel gauge displayed in the lower right portion of the screen. 
Select Advanced in Switch to: view. 
Click the Battery tab. 
Click Battery maintenance. 
Click Perform Reset. 
Follow the instructions on the screen.

After the reset is complete, the battery gauge will be calibrated.If Power Manager is not installed or no Battery Maintenance button is available in Power Manager, the battery gauge can be reset by the following instructions.

Charge the battery to 100%. 
Disconnect the AC adapter from the computer. 
Discharge the battery until 5% or less of the battery charge is remaining. It is okay to let the critical battery action hibernate or shutdown the system. 
Connect the AC adapter. The full charge capacity value will update when the AC adapter is connected.

Try these steps and see if that helps your issue, a... Read more
