Scrolling issue on trackpad - Edge E430

Question: Scrolling issue on trackpad - Edge E430

Hi guys,

I have a few questions.

The finger scroll on the right end of my trackpad doesnt work. It's a new Thinkpad Edge E430/ Windows 8/64-bit.
Can you help me out with this? Also, are there any other features of the trackpad, such as dual fingers or pinching giving other actions?

Also, these are the number associated with my laptop
Product - MP2C5AN , S/N XXXXX, machine type - 3254.

How can I find the 3 character Model Number required here in the 4th step -

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

regards,
Hariharan

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.

Answer: Scrolling issue on trackpad - Edge E430

Hi, Hariharan

I would firstly make sure that the BIOS have been updated. The computer may be new, but sometimes the latest BIOS is not the one installed at the beginning. You can find the latest BIOS here.

I would then go to the Control Panel and select Mouse. There should be a new window with a tab on the right called UltraNav. I would check the settings of the device here and make sure that everything is set as it should be. This section allows you to configure other actions of the TrackPad, such as scrolling, tapping, swiping, etc.

Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

Hi, you may find that you need to force Windows 10 to use your older driver.

This is discussed here, together with how to suppress a particular update. (Search the page for 'powershell').

Got a new surface pro 2017 and love many things about it, but in Edge the touch scrolling goes from great to terrible. After a reboot it works great just like you would expect, but then after using it for a while it starts to get jumpy and the slightest touch makes it jump down a whole page or get very jittery. Re-boot and things are back to normal. IE works good when this is happening, don't think it is a hardware issue since re-booting seems to fix it for a while. Have all the latest updates. Anyone have an idea what may be the issue??

I was having problems with the touchpad on my laptop, to be specific, with the scrolling feature. On some websites, it would suddenly stop scrolling, or the scrolling was choppy, or it would only scroll on every second attempt or so. It was a huge annoyance. I found a solution and want to share it here, in case someone has the same problem. It seems to be caused by a bug in the latest drivers. I downloaded an old driver for the touchpad and suddenly, scrolling worked like a charm. I used version 14.0.16 of the Synaptics driver. Do a google search for "14.0.16 synaptics" to find a download link. Uninstall the current driver first before you install the old one. Hope this helps. Edit: Unfortunately, installing the old driver breaks an important functionality. It is then no longer possible to keep one finger on the left ClickPad button while using another to move the cursor. Now I can't decide what's worse, wow...

Hello, I've had my thinkpad a month with no problems, never touched the ultanav setting i scroll with the center button with the rectangle symbol, one day it changed to a circle scrolling symbol and it SUCKS in my oppinion, went to look fot the problem in ultranav, and it was GONE, somehow uninstalled, so i reinstalled the driver and it worked somewhat but it would cause the mouse to freeze and it did'nt work with some apps. Today i started up and its back to circle and the multigesture doesn't work. Anyone know how to return it to original and keep it that way?

I am experiencing an annoying problem - my trackpad stopped working. I have narrowed it down to a driver issue. Because if i uninstall the "Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav"-driver the trackpad starts working. As soon I install it again it stops. I have tried rebooting and it's no difference. When the driver is installed I cannot even the "Mouse" dialog in control panel.  I have tried the latest drivers: 18.0.7.40 as well as the previous driver. Same result. I have downloaded the drivers through the website as well as with Lenovo support app.  My model is the new X1 Carbon, model: 20A7005UM5 not even 2 weeks old. It worked until yesterday. The only thing done since is the regular update by Windows 8.1. I even tried a system restore before the updates but now there is no difference.  I want to point out that, when driver is uninstalled, the trackpad works, but without all the functionality. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Regards,Jan

So I got a iTunes update a couple months ago. While I don't really like the new iTunes my more pressing problem is that it seems to be affected by the Smart Audio Driver and/Or the Dolby equalizer app. I tried the new driver from Lenovo but it does not seem to fix the iTunes issue which is iTunes freezes if I open either the Smart audio or the Dolby app. I tried to uninstall the Lenovo Conexant driver combo which unistalls both the Smart audio App and the Dolby App. Then allowing Windows to install a basic driver. Which does solve the iTunes freeze ups. What is troubling is that without that Dolby equalization the audio quality is dreadfully bad and worse yet even with decent headphone the fequency range is very poor. I guess I know now why the Dolby app is included. It makes a bad sounding audio chip sound better. My question is weather its worth trying a different driver to imporve sound? Or just wait for maybe a iTunes update or a Lenovo driver update that may fix the issues. I know that the Thinkpad line is not exsactly for audiophiles. But I was surprised the quality was not a little better.

My new Edge E430 wakes from sleep inexplicably. Under the power plan, I have wake timers disabled for both battery and AC power. Under scheduled tasks, I have reviewed every scheduled task and not one has "allow wake from sleep" checked. Yet the machine spontaneously wakes from sleep (that is, without human input) after approximately 3 hours. How do I determine which task is causing wake? (Is it conceivable my LAN could be doing so?)

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?

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

Hi Lenovo community! I have just purchased the Lenovo Yoga 2 and have been exploring all of it's features. I've found that the two finge scroll feature using the trackpad is either much too sensitive or all together too fast. Whenever I try scrolling down a page, it skips to the very bottom. I've looked under trackpad options and haven't found a way to adjust this problem. Any recommendations? Thanks so much!

Answer:Scrolling with trackpad is way too fast!

1. Right-click the touchpad icon in your system tray. (Synaptics)2. Choose 'Pointing device properties'
3. Go to the 'Wheel' tab
4. In the first section 'Vertical Scrolling' > 'Roll the wheel one notch to scroll: ' you select 'The following number of lines at the time:', and change its default value '3' to something lower for example '1' or '2'.

I have drivers for both synaptics and elantech touchpads. synaptics is supposed to support two finger scrolling on my computer but there is no option there to enable it. I have a Samsung laptop, my model number is Rv515-A04US, running windows 7. Under device manager elantech is not listed. I guess it didn't install? I have Synaptics PS/2 Port Compatible TouchPad. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Synaptics Trackpad no scrolling

I have a Samsung laptop, my model number is Rv515-A04USClick to expand...

Here is the support site for the Samsung NP-RV515-A04US laptop:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/NP-RV515-A04US

Select the "Downloads " tab and then select the "Drivers" section and then select the Windows operating system.

The list of device drivers for that laptop will appear.

The touchpad driver package (version 4.1.0.0) contains files for both Elan and Synaptics touchpads.

It's my guess that activating the TouchpadSetup.exe file will detect the correct touchpad and install the correct driver.

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 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!

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.

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.

I was wondering if someone could help me with this... Recently I noticed that the AES-NI feature of the Core i5-3210M processor in my ThinkPad Edge E430 is not being detected by the operating system. I remember that, when I first got my computer, AES-NI was being recognized by other applications, like CPU-Z and TrueCrypt. However, since then I updated my BIOS to version 2.04, upgraded to Windows 8 and rolled back to 7, only to discover that AES-NI is no longer available. I tried upgrading to BIOS v. 2.08, but that didn't help. I also booted from a Linux live USB, and AES-NI is not detected either. Is there anything I can try? The only thing I can think of is rolling back the BIOS to an old version. Would that be worth the trouble? Or should I just contact Support?

I have a Yoga 900.  I use a Logitech wireless mouse that connects to my computer with USB receiver. I love the "natural scrolling" option that my trackpad uses (when I move my finger up, I want the screen to scroll down, like on a tablet).  However my USB mouse goes the opposite way.  It makes it really confusing having the 2 mouses scroll different directions.  I want to have them the same because I use each about half the time, so reversing the scrolling altogether won't work. How can I reverse the scrolling direction on my USB mouse while leaving the trackpad as-is? Thanks in advance!

When scrolling in Windows 10 using the trackpad of the XPS 15 9550, sometimes scrolling is extremely slow. (You can scroll, and physically sit back and wait for the scrolling to finish.)
I noticed this in windows which contain a treeview (e.g., the left pane of the Windows explorer, foobar2000 album view), and not (yet) in other windows (e.g., Chrome, or the right pane in the Windows explorer).
When plugging in an external mouse and using this to scroll, this does not occur, indicating a possible issue with the trackpad drivers or settings?
Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Just bought  a Carbon X1 with windows 10. Everything works except for scrolling with one finger on trackpad as I always did on my E450. Called support and he installed new drivers but still no scrolling. Trackpad works for cursor movement and clicking. Called support back and fix is to return laptop for motherboard replacement. Seems extreme and last ime I sent in E450 for disk drive and motherboard replacement laptop became erratic. Rather not have even a trained technician opening up a brand new $1500 laptop. I have two questions:1) Should single finger scrolling work on my Carbon X12) Is there a setting for scrolling. I recall on my E450 running windows 10 that I was able to specify where I wanted scrolling to be active on the trackpad (Left edge, right edge and even width of active path.

I just got a X1 Carbon after the base on my Helix started having permanent errors. After spending half a day getting things set up on this machine, I'm finding myself with an EXTREMELY irritating problem that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I don't like "natural" scrolling so went through the trouble of finding and fixing the trackpad scrolling "feature."  I have now gotten it set up so that I can now scroll appropriately in the apps on the desktop in Windows, but in Windows Mail the scroll direction won't change no which direction things are scrolling on the desktop (it is always "natural").  Needless to say, with a crap-ton of work to do, this is the last thing I want to be dealing with.  Shouldn't it be possible to scroll in the same direction across all of Windows 8.1.  I'm guessing that this is a Synaptics issue, but frankly, I don't care.  We pay more money to Lenovo for these devices so that they work.  Help!! BTW: this wasn't a problem with the Helix, so it would be hard to blame this on Windows 8.1.

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.

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.

Hello all!

I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) on a new Sony Vaio laptop. I am having trouble with the scroll facility using the trackpad when using Fire Fox 3.5. Unlike Google Chrome, Opera and IE 8 the small 'scrolling icon' doesn't appear in Fire Fox. However I do have some functionality when scrolling but it is very intermittent. I can use Fire Fox ok using a standard USB mouse though.

I have updated all drivers from Symantics for the trackpad/mouse and searched many forums for a solution but have had no luck.

Is this is bug that will be fixed or a fluke? I absolutely love FireFox - it is the hands down best browser out there and don't want to switch to IE8, Chrome or Opera because they just aren't as good.

Many, many thanks.

At several occasions now, my trackpad two-finger-scrolling stops functioning as it should after some time of using the system. It seems the gesture is still recognized, but it is handled incorrectly: rather than scrolling 'within' the selected window, the whole window seems to 'bounce' indicating I can't scroll any further. Scrolling with an external mouse works fine, as does scrolling with the touchscreen, as does moving the mouse to the scrollbar and click-dragging.
I have updated all latest drivers, except the BIOS which is on A06 since I do not want to upgrade it (yet) since the higher versions currently cause the screen's brightness to flicker. Unless this BIOS is known to address these issues (not listed in the details) I do not see a reason to upgrade it (again).
Worth noting is that this issue only seems to arise after some time of using the system (possibly after a few sleep sessions?).

Just got this machine (Yoga 13 i5) 3 days ago, and while I'm satisfied for the most part I noticed that scrolling in web pages using either Firefox or IE is pretty slow. Actually it seems like webpage rendering overall is a little weak. I'm coming from a Acer Timeline X 3830T which has pretty much the same specs as the Yoga 13 and there's no comparison. The acer always rendered instantly and never felt slow loading. The odd thing is that if I use my fingers in IE the scrolling is just as smooth as on my iPhone. In Firefox it's the same laggyness. It doesn't feel like a problem with the trackpad itself, rather It feels as if the GPU simply can't keep up, which I'd have trouble believeing. Am I the only one noticing this? Also what's with the CPU overhead? In task manager I'm seeing 15-20% cpu utilization at idle with a good chunk of it being taken up by WMI Provider Host.

Using two-finger scrolling on the trackpad of my laptop, the vertical scrolling is way too fast. In the diff-view and in the list of commits, the view scrolls by more than a page by moving my fingers only a millimetre (1/16 of an inch). Just rolling my fingertips moves the scrollbar by many pages.
When I use a mouse scrollwheel the scrolling speed is normal and even feels a little slow.
This software is from sourcetreeapp.com .
The people from sourcetree suggested it may be a driver issue, but all other software scrolls fine.  Does anyone else have this issue where one java-based program scrolls very quickly but all other programs work fine?

More and more I'm finding that the cursor randomly jumps all over the screen when I touch my trackpad. Also instead of scrolling with a 2 finger touch it zooms instead. Never had this problem when I first got the computer and it started happening a lot within the last 2-3 weeks. Could this be a hardware issue such as a lose connection or electrical short? I haven't changed any drivers or installed updates so I'm inclined to not think its a software problem. Anyone else having issues like this?

Answer:Trackpad randomly jumps and zooms instead of scrolling on x220Tablet

My x201 was refurbished and when I got it, and the touchpad was a nightmare. The cursor jumped all over the screen, it started often to zoom instead of scroll (or started zoom without a reason) and sometimes half the pad stopped working. I called the Lenovo service here in Sweden, and the next day a guy came home to me, changed the mousepad with a new one and afterwards it worked perfectly. This was 4 months ago and it has been working perfectly since then.

My Aspire M5-481PT laptop was working fine for months with Windows 10, then suddently the trackpad stopped working after an automatic update. I was able to install the most recent Synaptic Windows 10 driver, and after a few hours of farting around got the trackpad to work again, but the two finger scrolled still doesn't work...it doesn't show up as an option in the Synaptic settings (see screenshot):Has anyone come up with a fix for this?   This seems to be a common issue with Windows 10 and the new automatic driver updating which is impossible to turn off.  Come on Microsoft / Acer, how could a critical piece of hardware like this stop working?!  Let's do some better testing before rolling out updates....every time I waste hours to getting my computer to work with little support from the manufacturers, I am a one step closer to buying an Apple machine next time. Thanks for your help,Allen

I got my Lenovo Yoga 710 in the summer of 2016, and everything works great except for the inactive scrolling. The inactive scrolling only works when I have an external mouse attached to my laptop, in which I am able to type in one window while scrolling in another window that's inactive. However, the inactive scrolling doesn't seem to work when I am using my trackpad and not an external mouse. I have updated all of my drivers, but I just don't understand why the feature would work only with the external mouse and not the trackpad. It is rather inconvenient to carry around an external mouse when the trackpad is supposed to do the job. I am coming from a Macbook Pro and I really miss the inactive scrolling that it provided.  I would really appreciate it if someone could please help me. Thanks! P.S. I do not have any third party software installed and the inactive scrolling feature is "enabled."

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?

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

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.

Hi, I have Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 3254 T1Q laptop, I need suitable Wireless (Wifi) driver. My OS is Windows 7 64 bitUltimate. I tried with many drivers, but no use. Please help me. Thanks in advance. -Thiyagarajan

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.

My system stops recognizing Ethernet card. It does not show up in PCI device list. BIOS does not recognize LAN MAC address either, and network boot does not work. Can the NIC be replaced separately? I see the RJ45 Subcard FRU but not sure if it's just the RJ45 port or the NIC too.













Solved!

Answer:Ethernet card (Realtek) on Edge E430 integrated to mainboard or separate?

welcome to the community.
 
there's no removable/replaceable NIC for wired LAN. the subsystem/circuitry is part of the system board.

After upgrade to Windows10, I am now receiving an error regarding the Intel Management Engine firmware being out of date on the subject machine. I have found the following link that is supposed to fix this error, but hesitate to use as the E430 is not one of the listed machines for the fix. Here is the link: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds032435?lenovoid.action=uilogin&lenovoid.realm=support.le... Will this firmware download and upgrade work on a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430? If not, what will? Thank You .... AM Smith

Aside from the below trackpad issues, coil whine and fan that likes to spin up even when doing basic tasks, I quite like the new Spectre x360. Issue 1: When using the entire trackpad as a click, the cursor will sometimes move just before I actually click down, which is something I never experienced on my MacBook Air's trackpad. This results in either missing what I originally wanted to click, or clicking on something entirely different. Issue 2: Two-finger scrolling doesn't work in the bottom 20% of the trackpad. I can use two fingers in that area, but scrolling won't actually start until I get towards the middle of the trackpad. So, until I hit that area, it'll just be single-finger pointing. Given the trackpad's wider than it is tall, this can become a problem. I tried messing around with the dated-looking Synaptics settings program, but couldn't get anything to help. Maybe it'll get better with time on its own? Otherwise, hopefully software updates will fix it...

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 (base non-pro) 11 W8.1 with all the latest updates from microsoft.   The trackpad has never worked successfully with 2-finger scrolling.   There was a lot of buzz in 2014 on the trackpad issue on this formum and elsewhere; I haven't seen much posted in the past 6 months so I don't know if a) the issue has been fixed or b) people have given up.  Notably I've seen recomendations to download use the trackpad manufacturer's drivers, but others have commented that this disables the tablet features.  Apparently the proper driver would have to emerge from Lenovo. Has there been a resolution to 2-finger scrolling on Lenovo Yoga 2 11 that retains the tablet and other convertible features? thank you,-rei

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?

I recently got the Ideapad S400 touch, and for the most part it works fine. However, the trackpad often becomes erratic, and the most annoying thing it does is randomly stop its scrolling feature (two fingers on the trackpad to scroll). Usually if I restart the computer, it works again, but I'd like to find a better solution. Any ideas?

When scrolling with the index finger on my right hand I will regularly hover over and lightly touch the left button with my left index finger in anticipation of the link/button/text box etc that I am about to click on. I have always done this an never encoutered any issues on the numerous laptops I have owned and used in the past). When I do this on my newly axquired Lenovo Yoga 900 it causes the mouse pointer to lag momentarily. I have updated drivers (v19.0.17.57), I have turned off ALL Multi-Finger options (2-finger, 3-finger and 4-finger) and reduced Palm Tracking to the minimum. Is this behavior isolated to me, or are other experiencing the same behavior? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The touchpad seems to be a bit loose. When you put your finger on it, it moves down about 0.5mm. This might not seem like a lot of movement but it's still enough to be annoying. And you also hear a dim click sound when you put your finger to it when the touchpad "hits" the surface below it - which is especially noticable when 'tapping to click'. Is this enough reason for to use the warranty to get the laptop repaired? The video below illustrates my problem exactly on another model of laptop, in my case it's not nearly as severe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfN752lZ8rY Any advise on what to do? I don't want to be picky but this is a really annoying problem for me, makes the laptop feel like it's made badly and I can't ignore it.  The laptop is only a couple of days old.
