Preferred Solution: ThinkPad Edge E430 with Micro Hard Drive..?

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: 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.

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).

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

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.

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!

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.

Answer:Thinkpad edge e430 ethernet problem

Ok, I see no reply but I keep updating the problem. I took the pc to work, connected the cable and.... tada! Connection working! I am actually posting it from the Linux live CD. The question is, why my home LAN isn't working??? I used it for over one year and had (at least) 5 different laptops connected without the smallest glitch. Any ideas?

I've got an E430 with 16gb ssd drive,and tried to use expresscache to speed up my computer.I used "eccmd.exe -info" to check out how it works and here is the result.Mounted : YesPartition Size : 14.91 GBReserved Size : 3.00 MBVolume Size : 14.91 GBTotal Used Size : 3.74 GBTotal Free Space : 11.17 GBUsed Data Size : 3.67 GBUsed Data Size on Disk : 3.74 GBAs you can see,now the "total used size" is 3.74GB which indicates that the cache has benn stored on the sdd drive.But every time I shut the computer down,and restart it, check the status, the "total used size"just return to about 300MB(maybe even lower), I wonder is this how it supposed to work like?

But I noticed that after I deleted the partition, my computer's boot up time seems to be slower than before, does that partition has some thing to do with boot up time?

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 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.

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.

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.

As an alternative there is also this driver, that may work in the even that the one from Broadcom does not.

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?

To those in the forum I recently damaged my thinkpad edge laptop 15" after not long ago having to reload every program and everything onto it, it takes me sometimes a week to get things back to normal. It's damaged irrepairably but the hard drive is Ok. I've now bought a thinkpad G570. Can I simply replace the hard drive int he G570, with the pre-loaded harddrive from the THinkpad, and will it just load up and work? The solution that has been offered to me so far ist to buy the sata -usb cable, and attach the old hard drive to the new g570 and go through the one key recovery and transfer the whole system that way. Any ideas would be great. I'd prefer just to swap the new hard drive for the old.  

Answer:Replacing Ideapad Hard Drive with Pre-loaded Thinkpad Edge hard drive

Hi, RichardBarclay
 
Provided the hard drives are the same size and use the same connection, there is no reason that the new computer shouldn't recognize it. And provided the new hard drive is simply removed and not touched until you're sure the old hard drive works, then there shouldn't be any danger in trying. If, for some reason, the old hard drive doesn't work in the new computer, then I would recommend getting a SATA-USB cable to simply transfer the files. And you may want to do that anyway as it is, in my opinion, a useful device to have in case you ever want to transfer data between drives again.
 
Best of luck,
Adam

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?

Hi, Posting this in case anyone is looking to replace their optical drive with a second HDD. I purchased HDD caddy for my Edge 14. On Ebay I bought one listed as: 12.7mm 2nd SATA Hard Drive HDD Caddy for Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 E425 E420 (from seller excellent_accessory) and it's outside dimensions were exactly the same as my optical drive. I just told the seller the model number of my optical drive (by looking in device manager). The trim piece from my optical drive fit directly onto the caddy without much issue to give a clean look. Didn't have any trouble detecting the second drive in Windows, was pretty much plug and play.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 2nd Hard drive Caddy

Hi and welcome to the forum!

The Slbook doesn't mention anything about SATA HDD Bay adapter, even the optical drive is not termed Ultrabay, I think it's suffice to say that such expandability option doesn't exists for Edge.

Hope this helps.

I've seen this topic for other models but not for the E420. I have about 60g left out of my 500G stock HDD and was wondering if I could replace the dvd drive with another hard drive. I'm not sure of the process to do this as I just heard that some laptops let you do the swap. What parts would I need?

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E420 2nd Hard Drive Possible?

you can replace the dvd drive with a hdd caddy, but it is not a Lenovo oem part, this is an aftermarket part. There is a screw on the bottom of the laptop, which holds the optical drive in place, just unscrew that and remove the drive. you can google for the hdd caddy on ebay. You can also get a mSATA drive and put it in your E420.

Hi, having recently upgraded the stock hard drive to an SSD in my Edge 11 laptop, I've misplaced the carrier part that secures the drive to the laptop, preventing it from coming out when knocked or moved. Everything works apart from when the drive comes loose and the laptop then needs a re-boot, as well as removing the back plate to refit it. As you can imagine, this is a massive inconvenience, especially when I'm out.I've called Lenovo support but the rep i talked to didn't seem to know anything about a caddy to secure it, and said he could not help me as it is a third party hard drive. Does anyone on here have any idea where I can buy one, or even have one themselves to sell? Any help appreciated, thanks.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 11 Hard drive Caddy

joecarver, welcome to the forum,
 
the only easy way to get hold of the hdd caddy is to purchase a hard drive from Lenovo as an accessory or spare part for your system.
 
One of the sponsors of forum.thinkpads.com may offer them, (see advert at the top of the boards), but they are unfortunately in the USA. You may have some luck and someone here pops up with the unknown FRU number or has a broken system which they are parting out.
 
Good luck!

Hi, I am considering replacing my thinkpad edge hard drive with an SSD but i have a few questions first. Is it possible to replace the hard drive under the cover? it looks like the whole bottom is a cover ... is this true? Does removing the cover void warranty? Can I install W7 using any cd and the COA number or do i need a lenovo specific CD? Id like to avoid the lenovo software in the new install if possible. Thanks Clem

Answer:Replacing the Hard drive in a Thinkpad Edge 11

Yes, no problem. I've exchanged the default 320 Gb harddrive with a 640 Gb Seagate. You just unscrew the three screws on the bottom plate, and then you have access to the harddrive, which has a further two screws in the mounting device. I don't think that you'll void the garanty, because you also have to access under the plate if you want to use the 3G modem.I don't know which cd's you have to use, I just cloned my drive.

ThinkPad Edge hard drive failed while still under warranty.  I took the machine to a local Lenovo warranty service provider for repairs--they've notified me that Lenovo says the serial number for the defective hard drive doesn't match their records and they will not authorize a replacement. This laptop was purchased from Lenovo Direct Sales (internet) and has never left my possession (or even been outside my home).  It was used lightly (primarily for personal emails--lest than 2-3 hours/week). I wouldn't know how to replace a hard drive, or even think of doing it myself.   The hard drive that's in the machine is what was shipped to me from Lenovo--if the part number doesn't match their records it's due to a problem with their record keeping.   The repair center is at a loss as to what to do next, as am I.  I think this is just another way for Lenovo to not honor their warranty.  Judging from the negative feedback I've read on the internet, this is rather common.

Answer:[thinkpad edge 0302-45u] back to factory settings with a clean hard drive. how?

You need the backup disks, unless you have a recovery partition.  You should have been prompted to make these when you first booted the computer. If the computer is under warranty, you can have Lenovo send you recovery disks.  If not they are some $50 or something like that.  If you are like me and think it is stupid to repay for something that is already yours, you can proabbyl find windows7 legitimate downlaods on the internet somewhere.  I have seen links for them before on sevenforums. But I never actually followed them,  You can then use your key on the sticker on your computer to reinstall.  Though this will not result in al the extra crap lenovo ships with their computers (though I think it is all crap anyways... including windows).

I just bought an ultrabay caddy for my Thinkpad Edge E530 (3632QM i7 quad core). The ultrabay first did not fit inside but I removed some plastic juts from it with a knife and drill . Now it fits in the slot, and the hard drive does seem to work when the machine is on. The only problem is that when you try to shut down the computer or reboot, it "thinks" for about 10 minutes before it actually shuts down the computer or reboots. I tried many things, I installed OS from scratch and it still does it. Immediately when I disconnect the ultrabay and put the machine on again the problem disappears. I tried changing various settings from BIOS but it does not help. I disabled rapidstart and removed the 16GB SSD, no change. OS is Win7-64bit. Any idea what could be causing this...? I think the most logical quess would be that something assumes that there is still an optical drive inside the computer even that there isn't and this causes the delay. Although I really don't understand how this could be as SATA is standard bus and you should be able to connect anything into it.   By the way the Ultrabay i bought  is made by Leicke:http://www.amazon.co.uk/LEICKE-Ultrabay-Enhanced-Adapter-Thinkpad/dp/B007II8O32/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&q...  BIOS version is the latest (was it 2.08 or something...?)  

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E530 + Ultrabay extra hard drive = 10minute freeze on reboot...?

OK, so I examined the issue more and it seems to be about power management. When I disable Intel Speedstep and  the setting below it (CPU Power Management was it...?), this problem disappears. I also noticed that the same delay is when I try to get the computer to sleep. Of course it is not really good idea to use a laptop without these settings being on so another solution must be found. I guess there must be BIOS support for a hard drive in the DVD-bay in order for it to work with power management enabled. The question is that 1. should there be such a support...? 2. if there isn't will there be with a BIOS update...? Btw.. I tested with 2 hard drives with both the same issue.   If it becomes clear that there is no way to get a hard drive to work in DVD-bay with power management on, can you make such configuration that you buy 256GB msata SSD, install OS into it, and have a hard drive in the normal HD-bay...? Or would the machine go crazy when it tries to search for a non-existing rapidstart partition from msata...?

just remove the bottom plate, and remove the hdd from the laptop (held down by two screws) to the laptop chassis. The hdd is in a caddy held down by 4 screws. As long as the hdd is 2.5 inch and 9.5 mm thick then you would be okay. The SATA interface is SATAIII (6.0 Gbps), which can operate at SATAI and SATAII mode, depending on the hdd you have.

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.

On my E430 I have an Intel 330 SSD in the HDD bay and the original 500GB HDD in a HDD caddy I bought on ebay. I installed a fresh Win7 Pro on the SSD (under the Legacy BIOS option) and reinstalled Win7 HP on the HDD (under the UEFI BIOS option).

The "Help Me decide" link says the following :  Boost your notebook's performance by up to 5x that of a standard 5400RPM drive alone.The Micro Solid State Drive (SSD) works in tandem with your PC's standard hard disk drive (HDD) to deliver both the storage capacity of a HDD and the snippy responsiveness of a solid state drive ? all at a cost significantly lower than standalone SSD notebook models. The 64GB Micro SSD occupies the notebook's PCIe Mini Card slot.  With a micro solid state drive, will my computer still boot faster than a regular plate drive?  What about compared to a SATA SSD?? Will the operating system be loaded on the Micro Solid State Drive when the system is delivered?  Edit : A Lenovo rep just told me the following : "With the Micro SSD drive your system will boot up a lot faster-very similar to having an SSD drive.   The OS however is not loaded on the drive however a lot of the loading files are which helps the system to boot up faster."  Now another Lenovo customer service rep is telling me something different.  Not surprising.  He says getting the SSD will not improve boot time.   Why do people make up answers?   Who is correct?  Why wouldn't they just install the OS on the SSD?  64GB should be enough.

Answer:M92Z : Micro hard drive option > 2.5" 64GB SSD mSATA Hard Drive

I got the M92z 23 inch AIO with Touchscreen recently (well i am using it right now). 
 
-> mSATA -> basically a SSD that fits into the mPCIe slot. 
 
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/7782185634/  <-- this is the mSATA i took out of mine M92z AIO. 
 
Operating system won't be loaded onto the mSATA from the factory, but you can do it yourself using aftermarket Win 7 ISO. 
 
The reason why OS is not installed on the mSATA is due to space restriction, with the recovery partition and the OS + drivers installed it is already 40 gigs gone from the 60 gigs mSATA, which makes it useless as a main drive. 
 
Lenovo m92z uses the mSATA as a cache drive for the main hdd, it does boot faster if optimised properly. But it is never going to be as fast running the OS from the mSATA or from the SSD installed into the system. If you don't use the optical drive, i suggest you get an aftermarket ultrabay adapter (12.7 mm thick) and install a ssd into that slot, i am planning to do it. 
 
Alternatively, go and get a really big mSATA SSD like 128 gigs or 256 gigs mSATA, and install the OS on that. The 64 gigs mSATA shipped M92z is too small, unless you choose to install only the OS on the mSATA, and all the applications on the main hdd. 
 
The only reason i got my M92z with the 64 gigs Samsung mSATA was the fact that it was only a 10 dollars add on (a pricing error).

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.

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?

Answer:Edge E430 (3254) - AES-NI not detected (i5-3210M)

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 -

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 Gooose,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understood that you are facing the issue with Windows key activation on ThinkPad Edge 13.
 
Check removing the battery on the backside of the system, for some system the Windows license sticker will be placed under battery.
 
Please click here to know how to remove the battery from the system, and go to page no 69.
 
And also verify the Windows version you had earlier in your system is Windows Ultimate.
 
Hope this helps.

Friends, After upgrade to WIN 10 was successfully completed, the CD/DVD drive in this machine does not work. Though the drive is recognized in BIOS and Windows, it ejects the CD with a thud. When CD is inserted, the drive responds with a gruffy sound. Surprisingly, external CD drive works nicely. All the drivers have been updated by the Lenovo team. They diagnoised that the problem is due to dust accumulation in the lense and cleaned it. But, after working for a day, the sameproblem has cropped up  again. Please inform the solution..

I have an Ubuntu VM on my Thinkpad E430 I would like to occasionally use.  There seems to be a problem with allowing the VM to access multiple cores.  I have the latest BIOS according to the update utility.  In BIOS, I cannot find any way to enable/disable VT-x.  According to Oracle, features are locked or unavailable in MSR.  

Answer:Edge E430 BIOS update to allow multiple core access to VMs

I have the ability to enable/diable virtualization in my bios.  If I am not mistaken, this is one of the few computers where it is set on by default. Under ubuntu do  $ grep -E avx /proc/cpuinfo If there is a highlighted avx, it is already turned on.  Though I am not sure if this will work under virtualbox.   If you are using ubuntu anyway, why not use WUBI?  It basically installs ubuntu as a normal application in windows.  You may even get better performance that way.

When the disc tray release button is pressed the tray won't open and there is a blinking green light on the exterior optical drive housing and a sound like the motor inside is trying to push open the tray but can't. If I use a paperclip to press the manual release button and load a disc the opical drive doesn't rotate the disc once closed. The laptop makes some noise as if the optical drive is trying to rotate the disc but after a while goes silent as if there wasn't a disc in there in the first place.

Hi There I just ordered myself an S430 with a 128gb SSD HDD included. I didn't see an option to replace the optical drive with a secondary HDD (e.g. a 500gb) so have the optical drive in as standard. Now, I would have rather changed this out for a secondary HDD or for a Blu-Ray drive, thinking I could do this myself once bought...Looking at other posts it looks like you can swap out the optical drive for a Blu-Ray drive, although I would preferably get a secondary drive over the Blu-Ray, but I'm hesitant over a few things: Is this possible to do myself (swapping out for either secondary HDD or blu-ray drive) without voiding the warranty? (I got it with 2 year warranty)Is it actually possible to do at all? (swapping out for a secondary HDD) Thanks

Answer:Thinkpad Edge S430 - Swapping out optical drive for HDD?

Hello wfdc,
 
Removing the drive will not void the warranty, nor will changing it out.  The only thing to remove is the keyboard which is a customer removable part and the optical drive is also a removable part.  Here is a link to the Hardware Maintenance Manual:

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.......
