Preferred Solution: ThinkPad Edge E420 - 1x1 or 2x2 Wireless Driver???

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.)

Question: thinkpad edge e420

I was just wondering what everyones take is on the edge e420?I was looking at one and i was just wondering if anyone has encountered any major problems with them and if they are pretty good for the price. I noticed that the e420 has a large touch pad and the one im looking at has the core i3 23XX series with hd 3000 is what the specs claim. Also Im using a thinkpad t41 right now and how much different is everything, mean im running windows 7 ultimate on the t41 but without aero cause of the 32mb ati chipset. does the e420 have a good keyboard and is it better than say an hp or asus laptops on longevity and quality.Also is there any major flexing of the laptop? some insight would be nice

Answer:thinkpad edge e420

I have the I5 2410m version with win home prem (1141-a24) and I have been very happy with it so far. Previous ThinkPads z60t, t43.I picked up my E420 the first part of January. So far seems like a pretty solid computer. The experience has been very smooth (I have been meticulous about checking that I have the latest updates). Really impressed with it so far.My t43 (2gb Pentium M, 2GB DDR2, ATI graphics, and 1400 x 1040 screen) was running win 7 Ult. The user experience has been very nice (don't know how else to explain it.) Fast boot (30sec), quickly loads most programs... overall, every aspect has been very consistent and predictable.Flex is not an issue. I have not opened it up to see how its put together, but its pretty ridged. I should also mention that it is super light compared to any notebook I have ever owned.So, now the bad...or rather, observed items that I would probably change: I miss my ultra bay (the drive that is installed is pretty nice, I just don't like the outer cover. I worry about grabbing it oddly and breaking it..not a big deal though), I miss my ThinkLight, and the front 'edge' of the Edge can feel kind of sharp to your wrists if you type in certain angles.The chicklet keyboard is up to lenovo standards in my opinion (however, I do miss my t43 keyboard).Notables: The LED screen is wonderful, and I have very glad that its offered in anti glare. The front facing speakers sound very nice.Bottom line. Nice computer, and IT IS very much a ThinkPad, but it n... Read more

Whether or not the laptop is on battery or A/C, the fan "surges" for a second and then is quiet.  Obviously, I understand the need for the fan to come on/off, but what is this 1 second "surge" thing??? Thanks for any replies!

Answer:ThinkPad Edge E420 Cooling Fan

hey zaqxsw,
 
when this "surge" occurs, does it happen when you startup the unit or it happens when you are doing your work ?

1. Where is Enhanced Experience 2.0? Or are the tweaking already done? 2. If it is already done, then my startup is very slow. I am comparing to a System of my old Toshiba, which start up faster then this Lenovo Enhanced Experienced 2.0 Thinkpad Edge E420. My old laptop is a Pentium M 1.8Ghz Single Core, 1GB DDR 1 Ram, and a UATA 33 5200Rpm HDD. I dont trust the marketing things about EE 2.0, but i didn't expect it to be slow. 3. My Sandy Bridge Gfx Drivers is from ATI / AMD?? What is going on?  Does that mean i will never be able to install official drivers from Intel. Given OEM dont normally update their drivers, this sounds like a bad point. 

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E420 : Questions.

1. The tweaking is already done.2. Startup shouldn't take more than a minute.3. If the E420 has switchable graphics, then the Intel drivers will have to be provided by AMD, so no, you won't be able to use stock Intel drivers without breaking switchable graphics.

Hi, My "fn" key seems to sporadically stop working properly.  Most of the time, pressing it along with F1, F2, or any of those buttons does not seem to produce any result.  It randomly starts working at times, but only for a minute.   Strangely, the only way I can get it to actually work is by holding it down for ~30 seconds causing a dialogue box entitled "Thinkpad Keyboards Properties" to open.  While the dialogue is open, the fn key works properly- but again, only temporarily.   Things I have tried: 1)  Restarting my computer. 2)  Switching the "fn" and "ctrl" keys in the BIOS. 3)  Enabling and disabling legacy mode (changing whether or not you need to press fn to access the F1/ F2 etc. keys) 4)  Updating all drivers. 5)  Performing a system restore to a time before I recall having the problem. 6)  Performing an authentic rain dance and cursing the heavens. The OS I'm using is Windows 7.  No other solutions I've found online have worked.  As far as I know, there has been no physical damage or liquid damage to my computer.  I haven't downloaded any strange programs recently that could be linked to this.  Nothing else has malfunctioned besides this button.  It's frustrating because I use both the F keys and the 'control volume' keys regularly, so I can't just remain in default or legacy mode as I would need to switch back and forth ...

I am thinking of buying this laptop (Specs would be i7-2640m, 6gb ram, 500gb 5400rpm hard drive, AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6630, I'm in Australia) and wanted a few opinions on it. Particularly, if there are any owners here/people who have used it: How is the build quality? How is the Performance? How is the battery life? Thanks!

So I just returned a Dell Vostro 3450 b/c of poor build quality and bugs, and I'm looking for a replacement. I have owned a T61p for many years, and love it. Do the TP Edge machines have similar build quality as my trusty T61p? Also, the Dell I returned featured a backlit keyboard, which was actually a surprisingly nice feature. So I would prefer a backlit option, if it's possible... After a lot of searching around, I haven't been able to find anything regarding a backlit keyboard option for the E420 (although, I found a lot of info regarding the previous year's Edge lineup, and a lot of confusion about which machines did or didn't have backlit keyboards). I checked the slbook for the 1141-xxx (non-CTO) for this year's Edge E420, and for "Thinklight" it says "None" and it gives no indication of a backlit keyboard (just 6 row, spill resistent, multimedia FN). So, any chance this has backlit keys standard?? -- Just an optimistic shot in the dark, because I'm guessing that's a "NO," but I had to ask... So finally, is there any chance that a backlit keyboard option will be coming to the E420 CTOs? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Answer:Considering ThinkPad Edge E420 - Have a question

i believe if you do a little googling and research you can find out the comparison between the e420 and the T model line. i know for a fact that the thinklight is only on the e420s version. you might want to read a bit what the difference are between the 420 vs the 420s version

 Hi,  I have purchased ThinkPad Edge E420 1141-RY4 from Korea with the following configuration:Intel Core i5-2410M @ 2.3GHz (up to 2.9GHz with TurboBoost)8GB DDR3 SDRAM - Originally 4GB (1333MHz)Intel HD Graphics 3000 & ATI Radeon HD6630M (1GB dedicated) Although I am Korean, I don't use much of the Korean input and I also type without looking at the keyboard. Also, the keyboard seems a bit "crammed" with the extra letters stuffed onto the keys.  After some comparison with my local retail shops' (Singapore) ThinkPad Edge, I realized the following differences:Right Alt key is replaced by "?/?" (Korean/English input switch)Right Ctrl key is replaced by "??" (Chinese character input)The keys somehow seem to be shaped differently (could be optical illusion due to extra letters on the keys) Is it possible to fit in the fully English keyboard into my ThinkPad Edge?Even if the keyboard does fit, will the English keyboard work as it should, or like the Korean keyboard (with Alt and Ctrl replaced with other functions)?  Thanks in advance hwso1129

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.

I have just bought a new Edge E420. Recently it has been shutting down with no warning at all. There is no BSOD, no memory dump (although that is because i have not enabled it) and no noticeable pattern. I have checked event viewer, and sure enough there are several critical errors, all of them being this: Critical ERROR ID: 41. Kernel Power Task 63"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.It's interesting though, as the laptop never reboots. It just simply shuts down with no warning. I'm beginning to think it's either a driver conflict or a thermal problem, as the system does get noticeably warm after very little use. I have installed SpeedFan, and the program reports both physical cores sitting at around 59 degrees celcius. I'm not sure where to go with this. I've reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home Premium, and have installed all the required drivers (up to date) though the issue still persists. Any ideas?

For those prices I suppose I could just give it a try if no one here knows. Thanks,George

Answer:Upgrade Advice for ThinkPad Edge E420

Hi,
 
Short answer: I don't think so
 
As you probably know, WLAN cards are whitelisted in BIOS.  A card must be a listed model AND have a Lenovo FRU number.
 
The whitelisted cards are in the Hardware Maintenance Manual
 
Looks like a couple of them are dual-band.  A search by FRU number may locate a source.
 
[edit] A quick look at the BIOS readme didn't indicate that any cards have been added to the list.
 
Good luck,
Z.

Well I just got a Lenovo E420, and I just wanted to make sure these temperatures are fine. Its a i7-2640m, 6gb ram with AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6630  swtichable graphics. When I turn it on and open the temp monitor (HWMonitor), nothing else open, except for all the other possible lenovo stuff that opens at start up, the temperature of the two cores is around 54-55 degrees, in a 10 minute period it has ranged from 44-61. This is on battery btw, no ac adaptor plugged in. After about 10 minutes, still no programs opened except monitor, it seems temperature of core 1 is about 50 and core 2 about 46. Are these temperatures OK? Also I will let you know on the temperatures when I am actually doing something and should I use something to stress out the CPU and test the temperatures? If so, What should I use? Also I can hear this noise, I don't think it is the fan but something else, sort of like a long beeping noise, not very loud but can still hear it and when i put the laptop close to my ear, can clearly hear it? What could this be? the hard drive?

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E420 Temperatures

Well I think these temps might be normal, but just making sure? so any comments on the first post would be appreciated. I just have a few other questions about cleaning the laptop/keeping it clean as I get a bit OCD about small scratches and stuff. I understand that after a while because of wear especially on the palm rests, there will be some discoloration since they are matte surfaces? So whats the best way to prevent this, also about small scratches(really just discolorations) which there already seems to be some little ones which I have no idea as to how those happened (as i said i can get a bit OCD about this stuff), can you clean them? So basically whats the best way to prevent/clean scratches/discolorations on the matte surfaces especially palm rests, touch pad and cover?

Hi All, I foolishly ran the Lenovo software update tool and one of the updates that installed was battery firmware v1.13. The update failed part way through and ever since my battery is having an existential crisis - I know it's plugged in and 100% charged but it reads 0% (or sometimes a red X) and the machine shuts down when AC power is removed. Being out of warranty the phone line people just keep trying to sell me a new battery and have no ideas on how to fix the existing one. I've tried the firmware update multiple times but with no joy. Also tried sourcing previous versions of the firmware which doesn't work. My battery was not one of those listed for recall. Latest and best suggestion was that it may be a motherboard issue and I could confirm by plugging in a different battery to see if it works - with absolutely no suggestion who would let me borrow their battery and plug it into my possibly killer machine. Has anyone else had a similar problem and found a fix? Is anyone based in Perth, Western Australia and want to let me experiment with their battery? {you crazy fool!} Does anyone know how to contact an actual Lenovo person rather than the useless call centre (1800 041 267 from Australia, seemingly connecting to Malaysia or Thailand judging by the accents)? Consumer law in Australia would suggest these guys owe me a new battery regardless of warranty status but I don't know how I can force the issue if I can't even speak to them???&...

The computer works fine connected to my TV using that as the monitor. I`ve done some searching on this forum and tried the following to no avail:- Restart with power unplugged- Restart with power plugged in but no battery.- Held down the power button for several 1 minute intervals with the power adapter + battery out.- Using TV as the monitor: Adjusted brightness settings to maximum in Control Panel (Power Options)- Within Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel: Unticked Image Enhancement (Auto Adjust) plus unticked Film Mode Detection plus unticked Display Power Saving Technology.- Checked my Intel Graphics driver was up-to-date. I`m not great with computers but now suspect a faulty screen inverter or a motherboard problem. Pretty annoyed that this has happed to an 18 month old machine which rarely leaves my desk at home. My previous Thinkpad lasted 6 years which is why I bought this one. Could anyone suggest any other things I could try or direct me to a cost effective way to have it professionally repared? Thankyou,Roger

I'm deciding between a thinkpad edge 15 with an i3-370m and a thinkpad edge e420 with an i3-2310 (for the intel hd 3000 graphics-light gamer). However, the e420 (in an ebay listing), says in tech specs "integrated camera: no". Assuming he filled out all the tech specs, is this true? Can an e420 i3-2310m 2.1 GHZ 4GB RAM not have an integrated camera? Or is it just a typo/ error when he typed it? Please answer quick I need to decide quickly which I should buy. If it doesn't have an integrated webcam I will not buy it.

Answer:Do all ThinkPad Edge E420 Laptops have an integrated camera?

hey Stealtshsz,i believe the listing is wrong as the tech specs >> http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/system_data/e420_tech_specs.pdfmentions that there is an integrated camera

Hi, I own a Thinkpad E420 Type 1141-KZQ which was chugging along just fine during my warranty year. It has a Core i5 with ATI Radeon 1GB discrete graphics in switchable mode apart from the Intel HD graphics.    Last month after a seemingly normal shutdown, the laptop wouldn't boot up or startup even with the power plugged in. The service center folks told me that the motherboard would need a replacement. Having just crossed the warrantly period I had to shell out 180$ to get it replaced. Took a month. Just that after I got it back, the switchable graphics does not show 2 options anymore. The Display adapters under Device manager lists only Intel Integrated HD Graphics. I've tried to scan for hardware changes, but it does not seem to pickup the discrete graphics adapter.  What am I missing? Is there something that needs to be enabled at a bios level - I can't see any options there. I've updated the BIOS to the latest version. I've got the latest graphics drivers for the laptop model downloaded and installed from the lenovo website. Do advise.   Thanks.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E420 Display adapter missing

Can anybody advise on the actual motherboard model that is used by my E420 with discrete graphics. I believe they've replaced it with a new motherboard that works but does not have the discrete GPU slot. Thanks

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E420 laptop that stopped powering on all of a sudden. It was working fine till one day fine and all of a sudden, does not boot up the next morning. I have googled around and looked in Lenovo Forums and it looks like this is a common issue with motherboard on these types of laptops and that lenovo fixed some of these. Unfortunately, my laptop is out of warranty but I do see that Lenovo fixed similar problems for some laptops that are out of warranty. Please see the two threads below https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Edge-S-series/thinkpad-e420-wont-start/td-p/755813https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Edge-S-series/E420-motherboard-problems/td-p/667009/page/10So, I tried calling customer service multiple times hoping that I could get to talk to a supervisor and explain the problem. Just today, I was told I need to agree to pay $575 (which is much more than what the laptop is worth) to even talk to a supervisor. This is quite disappointing. If any Lenovo support staff is monitoring it, can you help here?

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E420 does not boot up and customer service does not help

Its not the motherboard even though they say it is. All they will do is replace the motherboard and it will just fail on you again. I had the exact same issue and the motherboard was replaced. Next day I used it it failed again. You need to remove the CMOS battery which is located underneath the laptop. Its in the compartment with the one screw. Remove that. Remove the battery and all power supply. Then  plug the CMOS back in and  plug in powercord. Once you have done that start up as normal. Press f1 to enter BIOS. Go to the Config tab and under "power options" disable "rapid intel start." That worked for me as a temporary solution.  It clearly isnt a motherboard fault as all Tech support from Lenovo claim it to be. I mean c'mon I had the exact same fault the day after my motherboard was replaced, but after removing CMOS and battery the motherboard magically starts to work?? Must be related to the W5 problem they have been having with BIOS.  Heres a link to another thread with others with the same problem. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Edge-S-series/E540-power-issue/td-p/1326979/page/9 Let me know if this helps at all since no one from Lenovo seems to care about helping their own customers... very dissappointed with the customer service. Personally I dont think Ill ever purchase a lenovo product again after their pathetic execuse for "tech support." Anyway good luck!

Hi I recently purchased an Edge E420 and noticed there is an additional function if used with Fn Key.. I tried to use it together with the Fn key and the screen shows the function is disabled. Pressed it again and it didn't enable the function back again. I tried the user manual (PDF version) and couldn't find anything related to this problem. By looking at the icon which is printed on the space key I assume it's something to do with the Keyboard's backlit function but never knew when I purchased it. My Thinkpad Edge has the following specs, Core i5/2410MWindows 7 Pro 64 bit Thank you and looking for any of your valuable feedback.

Hi All, I foolishly ran the Lenovo software update tool and one of the updates that installed was battery firmware v1.13. The update failed part way through and ever since my battery is having an existential crisis - I know it's plugged in and 100% charged but it reads 0% (or sometimes a red X) and the machine shuts down when AC power is removed. Being out of warranty the phone line people just keep trying to sell me a new battery and have no ideas on how to fix the existing one. I've tried the firmware update multiple times but with no joy. Also tried sourcing previous versions of the firmware which doesn't work. My battery was not one of those listed for recall. Latest and best suggestion was that it may be a motherboard issue and I could confirm by plugging in a different battery to see if it works - with absolutely no suggestion who would let me borrow their battery and plug it into my possibly killer machine. Has anyone else had a similar problem and found a fix? Is anyone based in Perth, Western Australia and want to let me experiment with their battery? {you crazy fool!} Does anyone know how to contact an actual Lenovo person rather than the useless call centre (1800 041 267 from Australia, seemingly connecting to Malaysia or Thailand judging by the accents)? Consumer law in Australia would suggest these guys owe me a new battery regardless of warranty status but I don't know how I can force the issue if I can't even speak to them???&...

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E420 Battery dead after firmware update 1.13

This happened to me today. The solution is to restart the computer and enter the BIOS.  Then use the arrow keys to move to the config tab, then down to the power option, hit enter, scroll down to the disable built-in battery, hit enter, then follow dirctions on the right.  You will unplug the power cord to shut down the computer and when you plug it back in and turn it back on the battery will be recognized.  if not , try the process again as it took me two tries.  hope this helps.

My thinkpad's screen wasn't properly (dark) I purchased another screen and installed it and there was still nothing. If I shined a light on the screen I could see a very very VERY faint image of the startup screen/login screen and it appeared the screen was cut into four quadrants each showing the same image (4 illustrations of the same image in each of the screens quadrants). When I hook up the screen via HDMI to my TV the computer works just fine, I just can't use the laptop screen. Any ideas? I received a PCI/PCI e test failure when using the solutions center. The OS is Windows 8.1, the processor is an intel i5.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E420 extremely dark screen, no brightness

The problem with your screen is the backlight. But because you have changed the screen the cause is either the wiring or the backlight power supply. The power supply appears to be part of the motherboard, so that leaves you the video harness or the motherboard. If it is the video harness, it is repairable, but it is much much easier to just replace it. As for the motherboard, you need to look at the video connector, both on the harness and on the motherboard, and make sure none of the contacts are bent over or burnt.

 I recently purchased a pre-configured ThinkPad Edge E420 Core i3 -- equipped with Lenovo's most-basic WiFi card. Now, I need to add dual 2.4 / 5.0 GHz capability to this E420. Will the retail version of Intel Centrino-N 6250 (part # 622ANXHMW) be recognized by the ThinkPad BIOS & supported natively thru Lenovo driver updates, same as the Lenovo version of this part -- FRU 60Y3195? (My reason for asking? The Lenovo "FRU" part is ~ 6x more expensive than the widely-available Centrino-N 6250 retail version -- Gasp!) Also, I don't intend to use the 6250 WiMAX (802.16e) feature, so I don't want the card wasting my bandwidth & my patience, by discovering & reporting on available WiMAX access points... Will that feature stay dormant & out of the way, unless or until I elect to use it in the future? I hope that I'm being needlessly cautious, but I was spooked by seeing numerous references stating that the similar Intel Centrino-N 6200/6205 are NOT compatible with Lenovo ThinkPads... My sincere TIA to all who choose to respond!

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_with_unauthorized_MiniPCI_network_card
 
Hi deltaman and welcome to the forums,
 
Lenovo has a whitelist in the bios that will produce an error that you can't boot past if you put a non-Lenovo branded card in there.  The reason for the whitelist is that the card is matched to the antenna in order to be compliant with FCC regulations regarding interference.  The only way around the whitelist is to modify the bios to accept the non-Lenovo card, but on a machine as new as yours, there hasn't been one made yet. So, you would be stuck with buying the Lenovo-branded card.  
 
As far as disabling the WiMAX feature, I'm sure there's a way to do it, I've just never had of those cards so I'm just not sure how.  Maybe someone who does will chime in here.

Answer:Brightness problem in ThinkPad Edge E420 & E520 Series.

I understand your frustration, have you checked to see if your BIOS is up-to-date?
 
There is a BIOS update that came out in Nov 2012, it includes a fix for the issue of brightness keys (F7 & F8).
 
Please let me know how this goes and if you have any questions.

Hi, nicholas89
 
How was your machine reformatted? Did you reinstall Windows with recovery media?
 
You can try, if you haven't already, to update the drivers from Device Manager. If you right-click on the device in question, select Properties, and then click the Driver tab, there should be a button for update driver. Also, I would make sure that your BIOS is up to date. The latest version for your system can be found here. 
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes

Hi all, The IT at my university recently changed their network certificate so that 'older computers' could no longer connect to the internet. At this point, my computer could no longer connect to the wireless (despite a high signal for the network). My wireless automatically connects at home, at work, etc. My Thinkpad is only 1 year old with a 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adaptor. The Realtek driver is up to date. The IT support found a work-around: changing my network adaptor properties so that in wireless mode, it only connects via IEEE 802.11b (as opposed to IEEE 802.11b/g/n that it was on previously). The internet then automatically connects. Is there anything else I can do to fix this? Steph

Hello, I am looking for a little bit of help. I have a Lenovo Edge 15 0319-46U laptop I recieved from my educational institution. I have had the laptop since fall of 2012. I've never had a single issue with the laptop except a month ago I noticed my wireless 1x1 b/g/n card stopped working. I'm well knoledged in computers and have already tried updating the drivers but I ran into an issue. My wireless card is no longer being shown on the Device Manager list under Network Adapters or "Unknown Devices", I only see my Wired gigabit card. I went into Bios, checked the button (did all the begginer stuff) and no dice. Wireless still does not work. I went ahead and ordered a new Intel Wireless card for said laptop and made sure the interface worked correctly, so my question is does anyone know of any fixes that could work even if the adapter is not shown on anywhere in the computer? And would anyone know if the Intel 7260-HMWNBWB Dual band card would be compatible with this machine? Thanks in advance for an answer.

The ThinkPad BIOS has a wifi whitelist.  A card has to be a whitelisted model and have a Lenovo FRU number or the laptop will refuse to boot.  Generic cards - even with the correct model number - won't boot on an unmodified BIOS.
 
Page 113 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual  lists the compatible models and FRU numbers.

I just purchased a Thinkpad Edge E530c 33662UU Laptop.  I have had it for one day now and it will not connect to my wireless network.   My wife is currently online with her laptop so the router is working (although I did reset it anyhow).  I ran troubleshoot and it didn't fix anything.  My network is showing up under available networks and it says I'm connected.  But it also says no internet access.  Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Answer:Thinkpad Edge Wireless connectivity issue

Hi, trevclark
 
I have a few questions that will help in resolving this issue:
 
What operating system are you running? Also, what computer and operating system is your wife using? What type of router are you using?
 
Also, I would recommend making sure all the drivers and software for your machine is up to date, which can all be found here.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

I just picked up an Edge 14 and had to reset it from Windows 7 x64 to  Windows 7 x32.  All the drivers have picked up except for the wireless driver.   The technical specs list the wireless card as Wireless NIC: ThinkPad 11 b/g/n so in theory it should be this driver: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS000979 but Windows says that the driver is incorrect.  I've checked the BIOS and the wireless card is enabled and F9 also shows that the wireless is enabled.  I've tried the rest of the drivers in the matrix in case I had the wrong one but none of them worked either.  Any ideas?

hi dhasch,
 
Thanks for posting. I believe the drivers you need will be the one i posted below.
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS000675
 
Based on the link you posted above, those driver are for the PCI Express type.

I had to do a fresh install of windows 7 professional.  Everything is working aside from the wireless connection.  I've downloaded each wireless driver and still the issue persists.  I can see the connection being broadcasted, upon entering the password to connect I only get "windows was unable to connect to xxx". I can connect to this wireless point from my phone and my other laptop plus no one else in the office is having this issue.  Only on this Thinkpad am I having the problem. If I try to use the Intel PROSet/Wireless Tools diagnostics I get a FAILED-Wireless Hardware is not bound to transport driver.  I've tried everything at this point with no luck.  The LAN works fine of course but I need the Wireless to work.  Thanks

It depends on how close you are to the router and how strong the connection is. If you're far away or there's a lot of interference, the connection speed will automatically drop to ensure data integrity.You may want to see if your access point is operating in 802.11g mode.

I have a IBM Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E320, it has a manual install of Windows 7 Home Premium. All the official Lenovo drivers and software have been installed correctly. I am using the application Lenovo System Update. It is downloading and installing the application "Thinkpad BIOS Update Utility -US-" It downloads OK, and then gives me a dialog box asking if I want to either "Update the Model Number" or "Update the BIOS". I select the option to "Update the BIOS" and I get given the following message ... "Driver loading failed. The Utility cannot proceed." You then get the option to click on "OK" and the whole thing closes. Could anyone please suggest a fix for this, ideally a legitimate way of doing it rather than a weird quick fix. But if there is no other alternative then it might have to be a weird quick fix.  I have tried Google-ing the problem and looking at various sites and forums, but no-one really seems to know the answer to the problem.  Any help or guidance would be really appreciated! So thank-you very much in advanced!! 

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E320 - Driver Loading Failed

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
You can find the available BIOS updates in your Driver Matrix. There is a choice of an updater that operates from within Windows and there is a bootable CD image. I prefer the latter method.
 
Is there a specific issue you are trying to resolve, or a new feature you need, by updating the BIOS?

Hello, I've recently bought the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E545 (about a week old) and everything is fine, except the problem is that the wireless download speed & connection is terrible slow. I've done speedtests and resulted in a 1mbps--or barely-- download speed. I updated the drivers, the network adapter, etc. and I have successfully updated the important Windows updates. It's currently Windows 7 and the current network adapter is 1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter. There is no problem with the router and no internet speed upgrade is required. I tested connections and done speedtests with other computers and devices on the same connection and their speed is significantly greater than the ThinkPad's. I assure you nothing is wrong with the router or connection area and I have some confidence that it is a hardware problem with the Wireless card. Is there any solution to this problem that does not require me to install another network adapter? I looked around and used Google and tried different methods but they don't seem to work. Thank you in advance.

I set up an account just to reply to you!...and also I just bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545, and I want everyone to know what they're doing.  Plus, I'm having the same problem.  I just downloaded the Broadcom Wireless LAN (Driver here! Remember to choose for either Windows XP, 8, 8.1, or whatever you have!) and I've seen past comments that this has worked for them.  I'm about to go try it out, so wish me luck!  I hope you haven't returned that laptop you bought!  Lenovo is usually such a good brand, from what I hear, and I personally already enjoy the exterior, as I put structure, stability, and damage-resistant against style, which the Edge E545 seems to be more for the accident prone or careful type, but still cool!  Good luck!

Hi, This is my first time posting and I'm hoping someone can help me resolve a strange issue I am having with my wireless connection on my Thinkpad edge.   Basically what happends is I cannot connect to my router unless I set up a network ONLY from my computer.  It will not work if the network is configured on another laptop in the house.   This is all well and good and I am able to connect when I do this but randomly every few days OR when I reboot or boot up from sleep mode I am unable to connect to the network that I set up on my computer.  Every other device in the house is able to connect to the router network that I configured on my computer. Every time this happens I have to reset the router.  I reset back to stock router settings with the NETGEAR SSID and no security and I am unable to connect and everyone else is still able to connect.  Thus I have to set up the network exactly the way it was before so all the other devices in the house won't have to keep changing their information just to connect to the internet.   I have tried updating the adapter drivers and that did not work and sometimes randomly I am able to connect to the stock NETGEAR SSID but this seldom lasts long and I have to go and reconfigure the network again the way it was.  While I have internet and I have found a temporary fix to this problem I would love to get rid of it all together as it is a pain and it seems to be happening more f...

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.

Hi, I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 for about 3 years now, and i have a problem that i can't solve for about almost a year.

I have two switchable graphics card in my laptop - AMD Radeon HD 6630M and Intel Graphics 3000. The thing is, that im currently running on Intel card for that year. One day, when i ran a game, it worked good for a while, and then i got huge FPS drop. When i restarted PC, ran a game, any game, it went fine for a while and again after few minutes i got FPS drop. So i opened my laptop, looked inside, and cleaned it from dust. After i put it all together, it worked like a charm. But only for a few days. Then, while playing a game, i got BSOD. Since then, i can't install ANY AMD driver. Just can't. Whenever i try, i get BSOD during installation. I thought that a new windows install might solve the problem so when the chance appeared, i downloaded windows 10. It didn't solve the problem. I tried every option i had, i even did a clean factory install - like if i bought it, no programs, no documents, nothing. Unfortunatelly, that didn't work either.

Hi, sardelich
 
I am unsure and hence cannot say when Lenovo is planning to release the drivers you are requesting, but the easiest way to stay up to date with driver releases from Lenovo is to subscribe to their RSS feed for driver updates. This will allow you to instantly be notified when new drivers for your system are released.
 
To set up the RSS feed, you can go here, select the RSS feed reader you wish to use (Google is the default), and select your system.

My 1st thinkpad E420, make me disappointed a bit. Just bought it for 3 days ago and found NO function supported for thinklight. Even the icon show on the spacebar but not work. My friends told me its spacebar might be common use with the other model (like a cost saving). I didn't believe them. 'Caz, the Sales & technician didn't tell me before. They just said it could work, NO problem and it's new series. And they also suggested me if something's wrong,i can return within 7days.  I didn't think this case could happen !! After 3 days past, it still didn't work. I was frustated since I couldn't reach any technician guy, also the hot line and I wasted time to search info.for this issue but nothing. Fortunately, today I could reach them (after dial for 3 days), and be told that it really didn't work for this model. This is the standard key to use common with another model i.e.E420s. OMG!! My friends were right !! Why they didn't tell me first !!.........That's it!

since you got this machine recently, i recommend using the ThinkVantage Tool and update your system.
