Hi I just recently bought the Thinkpad edge 13 (the versiodn with the amd k625 cpu) i love it but there is one big problem! the click button just below the space key always Double clicks anytime i press it, I installed the latest fitting synaptics drivers (because i want to disable the touchpad, i love those point sticks) how can i fix that i tries everthing that can be canged under WIn 7 Ulitmate 64bit... could anyone help? because i have relatively small hands and i dont want to use the click buttons at the bottom ov the notebook....  thanks!

Answer:Thinkpad edge 13 Double click on standart click

I have this same problem with an edge series laptop. I'm not positive, but I think it started right after I did the last round of updates through lenovos update manager.  I've tinkered with the double-click speed, but that doesn't seem to be it (wrong bounding option in settings). I suppose it could just be wear, though the machine is only a year old (and just out of warranty).   Did you figure anything out since you posted this?

I just bought a thinkpad edge last week, and it's a fantastic piece of machine. The keyboard is by far the best i've ever used on a laptop. Just a small question, it says here on the website that it's a spill resistant keyboard, however when i turned the laptop over, there aren't any drainage holes under it, So, what happens, if i do accidentally spill water on it ? Would the warranty cover the damage caused by it ?

Answer:Thinkpad Edge Keyboard

The video shows the liquid (water?) splashing back out of the keyboard.  I don't have mine yet, so not sure but based on that I'd say Lenovo has designed the keyboard some sort of barrier to resist spills.

Hi Steve and welcome to the Community,
 
Page 68 shows how to take the keyboard off.  Inspect the cable for any rub marks or breaks and reseat the connector. If you see any breaks or bad kinks, it probably needs to be replaced.

My wife just received her new Thinkpad Edge (0196-26U 13" display, Intel cpu, matte black). While not as peppy as our souped-up T61 or T400, it's a lot lighter and fits her needs. Most keys on the keyboard feel great but our model appears to have a defect. The upper right corner of the keyboard tray routinely pops out. I can click it back in but there is a noticeable bulge and with any slight flex of the body it pops back out. Also, the right-hand side of the END key is depressed relative to the rest of the keys. I will be contacting Lenovo today to inquire about a replacement part. Anyone else encounter this problem?

Hey guys, Had my Thinkpad Edge E450, for more than a year now. Never really had any problems with the keyboard. However, since yesterday, my keyboard has simply gone crazy on me. Right shift + c no longer registers, even though right shift + any other key still works. c works too along with c+ left shift. w+e keys, when pressed together doesn't register the e although both keys registers fine when pressed individually. Most weird of all is the fact that F4, associated with microphone no longer works either when FN is locked and when it isn't. However, every time I press the G key, the microphone activates/deactivates. I used the lenovo diagnostics tool and the keyboard passed the tests. Tried clean install windows 10 on the whole system and still the same result. Also tried uninstalling all drivers for keyboard in device manager and it still hasn't gotten any better. I didn't do any manual updates or anything that I know of which could affect the keyboard. Please help! That microphone popup is trying to hog my attention whenever I try to write a paper.

 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

Edit: I didn't realize how wordy this was till after I posted and looked at it! So here's a quick rundown.  Laptop keyboard isn't working properly. USB keyboard worked for a time then stopped working properly as well. Opening the onscreen keyboard restores fuctionality to the USB keyboard and partially to the laptop keyboard. Doing a complete system wipe and restoring to Lenovo settings didn't fix the issue.  This issue has progressed through different symptoms, so I will list them in the order they showed up. The first weird thing that started happening was keys not doing what they were supposed to. For example, when I hit H it would type several characters such as "efl." The E key would sometimes act like a command shortcut. Other keys didn't do anything at all. After this I hooked a USB keyboard to the laptop and at first, that worked fine. However, after the laptop went to sleep once and I woke it back up, the USB keyboard was also acting strangely, in much the same manner as described above. The onboard keyboard was still doing the same thing as well. I then restarted the laptop, and neither keyboard would hardly do anything at all. For some reason the E key on both keyboards would still act like it was hotkeyed to open some things, such as opening the edit function in word or my browser. After this I opened the onscreen keyboard, and it worked properly. For some reason, opening the onscreen keyboard and then closing it causes the ... Read more

I just received new ThinkPad Edge E130 (3358-5DG) as my secondary laptop on the side of my trusty W520. When travelling / flying etc W520 is simply just a bit too big, so I wanted to have a smaller unit which I can use in these conditions. I know Edge is not supposed to match the quality of W series, but wanted to give a try for this nice small unit. All is working pretty nicely, but keyboard backlight (illuminated keyboard) doesn't work. When looking at machine specifications it's clearly stated that the unit has keyboard backlight (which is a must for me), but there's also listed fingerprint reader that I know for sure that it doesn't exist on this unit. Also it's visible in pictures clearly that there is no fingerprint reader in any of the E130 units (which I didn't expect and don't need either). Fn + space combination should bring up the lights and it's also printed into the keyboard. Pressing this combination gives me OSD symbol "ThinkLight OFF" (icon with ThinkLight and line drawn on top of it) every time I press it, so I never get "ThinkLight ON" symbol and nothing really happens in the keyboard. I have updated all software etc from Lenovo, so all is running latest version. Situations was the same before and after update. So it seems that either A) My device has malfunctioning keyboard light or B) There is no keyboard light and device specifications are wrong at Lenovo site. I have been trying to find information about this issue from the web and so...

Answer:ThinkPad Edge E130 keyboard backlight?

Hello copter,
 
I understand the frustration that comes along with this problem.
Here is a link to your drivers.  http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page
Under the Software and Utility tab there is an option for the hotkey integration for Windows 7.  Download and update this driver on your computer.
Another driver that will help is to download your Power Management program and driver from the Power Management tab.
Both are on the Link from above.
 
On the invoice that came with your computer, is there an included parts section?  Included parts may not be the name of the section.  Please check the invoice and see if there is a think-light or back-lit keyboard listed.
 
Also,  Which light did you order for your Laptop? The back-lit keyboard, where the light is under the keys, or the Think-light where the light shines from above the screen down onto the screen.
 
Hope this helps,
 
Alex

I can't use my external Lenovo USB keyboard when the portable has just has been powered on. This is required to input a username and password before the windows gui mode loads. The workaround is to open the lid of the portable and use the keyboard to login before it loads the windows OS which is XP SP3.  I have downloaded and installed the latest E130 bios from 2.50 (2012-12-26) to 2.52 (2013-04-18). The USB keyboard may sometimes only be responsive after a cold start but will mostly fail to work. The current workaround is to remove and re-insert the USB keyboard once the portable has been switched on. I have also tried different bios combinations and USB keyboards without success. This is definitely related to the Thinkpad E130 as my external keyboards work on other Thinkpad models. Any ideas/answers welcome?

I have a Thinkpad Edge 13" (AMD Athlon Neo X2) and have encountered a number of problems that have come up over the last couple of weeks.  I've had the Edge for a year and half and it is no longer under warranty. Product Number:  01972AU #1 - Edge will not boot.  I hit the power button and I hear the hardrive start spinning but nothing shows up on the screen.  No Bios, No windows, nothing.  I have hooked up an external monitor with no luck.  The only way I have been able to get around this issue is to continually try to boot the machine (sometimes without the battery, with battery unplugged, etc.).  However, it appears that once the laptop is "warmed up" it boots.  It will then restart and shutdown and boot up without issue until I shut it down overnight. This issue appears to have come out of nowhere.  I've run and passed every hardware diagnostic test out there and nothing comes up.  But as soon as I leave the machine shut down for a while I have to go through the whole process again.  I've tried removing the RAM, unplugging the WAN, etc.  I'm afraid it may be a motherboard problem... #2 - Bottom of keyboard not working.  This one caused me a considerable headache since I believed that I had locked myself out of windows somehow since I didn't realize that I was typing in my password incorrectly.  Once I got back from the store with a cheap USB keyboard I could get back in.  I note...

 I am disturbed as a reseller that Lenovo failed to notify owners of a known defect of the Edge 15 Keyboard failure related to the ribbon cable before the replacement ECA-448 in Mid 2013. Users, like me, who don't use the laptop on a daily basis likely, did not use it enough during the ECA period to experience the problem.  NOW I have a defective ThinkPad and the fix is to buy the keyboard. Recently we have seen GM fail to recognize serious problems to avoid recalls for known problems.  I feel that Lenovo failed to notify us that the keyboard was likely to fail for the effected models and should therefore honor the ECA by extending for a period of time after notifying the owners of the condition they may have on models sold before the ribbon cable was adopted.  I do believe and state that ThinkPad and other supported IBM and Lenovo products out of George USA are superior to other computer manufactures.  I hope they take this type of failure to address a known problem seriously and not blemish their reputation.  David  PS: For those who the keyboard issue, you might try putting electric type over the area of the ribbon cable near where if folds at the 90 degree turn. You may see a small dent(s) in the cable where pressure from an adjacent item makes contact on the cable has your palm or other weight near or on the touchpad likely causes the defect over usage and/or pressure.

Currently I have a desktop shortcut to PuttyCyg (a modified version of PuTTY) which I have configured Ctrl+Alt+C as a keyboard shortcut to launch the program. Trouble is, once there is one instance of the program open, when I enter Ctrl+Alt+C again, instead of opening another instance of the program, it brings the window of the currently open instance to the front. This is strange, because when I actually click on the shortcut multiple times, the default behavior is to open multiple instances of the program. How can I change it so that hitting the keyboard shortcut forces new instances to open? Do I have to resort to things like writing a VBScript?

But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

Hello,With my previous Thinkpad X61s I was able to press Fn key and use some alpha keys as a numeric keypad but with my new Thinkpad X1 there is no such feature. I have some applications which do require the use of numeric keypad (note that the keycodes received by the OS are not the same if the normal numeric keys are used). Please, do not suggest to plug an external USB keypad or keyboard, that's, of course, a solution (which I don't like at all). Anyone has some suggestion to overcome this problem somehow? Thanks!Kind regardsBoyan 

Answer:Numeric Keypad (on Fn+alpha keys) missing on Thinkpad X1 and Thinkpad Edge

As you are experiencing Fn+ alpha numeric keys are not working, I would suggest you to please update the Power Manager software and also update the Bios of your system from the below mentioned web link.
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?
 
After this, please restart the system and check if the issue resolved.
 
 
Thanks & Regards,
Sameer

Hello, I just bought an Edge 15 and I'm wondering if backlight bleed is a common problem with it. There are several places around the edge of the display where the backlight discolors the screen. I've attached a picture; note the top edge of the screen especially. Is this normal, or is it worth looking into a repair?  Also, I'm surprised that this model does not appear on Lenovo's website at all. I have only found one review for it, and it seems Best Buy was the only one to sell it. Anyone know about that? EDIT: Apparently my thread was moved to the ThinkPad Edge forum, though I'm pretty sure that this is not a ThinkPad Edge series device (as far as I can tell that series was discontinued and this was not ThinkPad branded). If someone could clarify that would be awesome. Thanks!

Hi everyone, I'm wanting to buy a new laptop and currently deciding between this ThinkPad Edge E540 (479 Euros) and this refurbished ThinkPad T420 (299 Euros) I'll be using this almost exclusively for working with audio (music production, DJing, recording & listening to music) and almost nothing else - I run Ableton and Traktor which are quite CPU-heavy so the processor is quite important.Whichever I bought I would be taking the DVD drive out and putting in a SSD for the OS and my programs, and I would also be adding an extra 4GB of RAM.I don't have much money at the moment so the 180 Euros I'd save by buying the refurb would be very appreciated, however I really don't want to compromise the speed/lifespan of my laptop.---So my question is, how much do you think a 3-4 year old T420 (which from what I understand are one of the best laptops ever made) would compare to a brand new Edge E540 in terms of speed, and which do you think would last longer?---Thanks in advance for your input.

Hi. I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro and at the top, two of the keys increase/decrease the screen brightness (much like two of the keys at the top of a Mac do the same). Well, I discovered that if I press the key to decrease the screen brightness too quickly and bring it down all the way to the lowest brightness and keep clicking, it turns off the keyboard! As in, none of the keyboard keys will work anymore.
 
The only way I know of to fix it is to restart the keyboard. I'm wondering if there's a way to 1) disable the fact that it does this, and 2) find a way to turn the keyboard back on without restarting the computer, since it is, quite frankly, annoying when I have three word documents and about 10 browser tabs open. I can't figure out how to disable/stop this one key by using the keyboard settings/ toggling the hotkeys/etc.
Honestly, I'm not even sure if this is a Windows 8 issue or Toshiba issue. Has anyone else had this problem?

Answer:Keyboard shortcut locks up keyboard (Toshiba Satellite)

If under warranty, return this to the store ASAP for replacement/repair. There's not much we can recommend you do, hardware-wise, that you can do and not void the warranty.
 
I suspect the keyboard may be sticking,,, you can try another USB KB for troubleshooting though. Plug in the USB KB and see if that behavior is duplicated using that KB.

I want to by a T61p model and customise it, but I don't know the manufactors of parts such as HDD, DDR and DVD. If I take a 160 GB drive, will I get Samsung or WD, if I take 4 GB of Ram, will I get Hynix or Samsung?

Answer:Parts of standart configuration

Why does it matter? I would not say there will be any noticeable difference in performance. And as usually, whether WD is better than Samsung or Maxtor or else goes product by product. One company makes a "better" HDD one month, and the other manufacturer gets ahead the next month. The same like with Intel and AMD. Intel ranks better with one processor, then AMD takes the lead, then after a few months or with the next product, Intel takes the lead again, and then with the next product AMD takes the lead....  -------------------www.Maxi-Pedia.com

When using any version of IE Explorer, when viewing a webpage and want to create a desktop shortcut to that webpage I would simply right click just about anywhere on the webpage and select Create Desktop Shortcut from the drop-down Menu and Presto a new icon shortcut would appear on the desktop.

However, when using MS- Edge, when I Right Click on any webpage all I get is a small drop down-down menu with no selection to create a Desktop Shortcut. Please don't tell me that MS has removed this feature in Edge and I am just missing something or there is a flaw in my system.

So far the only way I have found is to add the page to a reading list by clicking the Star at top right, selecting Reading List and then Add.
It's not ideal but it's better than nothing.

Another roundabout way is:
While viewing your wepage in Edge,

Click the three dots at top right
Choose Open with Internet Explorer

Now you can create your shortcut as you were used to. The shortcut will open in Edge if that's your default browser.

I put about ten shortcuts onto my desktop, such as ones for eBay, Google, Amazon, etc.; however, they all have Edge's standard blue icons. This makes the whole group appear as a monolithic bunch of icons that all look the same and not so easy to read. Is there a way to change these desktop icons to the various websites' favicons, making them easier to see/read/use?

I think that you can right-click a shortcut, then choose "Properties," then click on "Change Icon." However, from there, I'm stuck, because it offers me the option of browsing to the icon I want, but I don't know how to get to any favicon that I might want.

It's easy to find those websites' favicons, using Google images, and I can then save them onto my desktop, but I don't know how to get them from there onto their relevant shortcuts. I think there is a cache, called something like "shell32.icon" or whatever, which holds icons, but I'm not sure if that's anything I want to mess with, because I'm fully aware that messing with those kinds of files can lead to disastrous results, such as the computer freezing up, the 'blue screen of death,' etc.

My mom was surfing the web regarding the Golden Globes and fell victim to some website that spawned an annoying webpage that was playing some message about "Your machine has been infected and call this number blah! blah!" She did not click any button and I navigated her over the phone to kill the task in Task Manager.
The problem is that when she launches the browser Edge goes back to that page.
Simple solution, I had disconnect her disable wireless and then restart the browser. Then had her kill her tabs one by one followed by clearing cookies, history etc. Then we ran a malware scan and virus scan (good thing she is retired because that took forever). Nothing was found and the page is gone. We enabled Wi-Fi and everything was running again and she can once again catch up on her gossip.
This leads me to my question. Is there a command line parameter you can pass to Edge to have is start without tabs reopening? I have found various websites that show how to modifying the registry -- something that I wish to avoid.

Hi Jeremy. I just got my Edge about a week ago.  I am also a college student.  I haven't had any problems getting around the CD drive.  My husband loaded Windows 7 Ultimate to a flash drive, then loaded it onto my computer.  I like not having it.  I was constantly bumping into the open button on my Vaio.  Very irritating when you are taking a timed exam online!  The Edge isn't as light as a netbook but it is pretty light.  I had a hard time deciding on the S10-3t or the Edge (as is evidenced by my posts on these boards--very embarrassing!!).  I am very glad I changed my mind and ordered this one.  I have the AMD Neo X2 L325 (1.5mhz) so I can't help with your question about the 1.3.  What I can tell you is that I haven't had a single issue with hanging.  This machine is very responsive.  I have a Thinkpad z60m.  The keyboard layout seems very similar to me.  I haven't had any trouble acclimating.  AND I LOVE this keyboard.  It has a better feel than the z60m, and that's saying something!  Prior to using this Edge, the Z60m was my favorite keyboard hands down.  I write quite bit (English/Communications major) and this keyboard is very comfortable. Battery power is pretty good.  I'm sure you'd get a lot more out of a netbook. I hope that helps a little. Karen

While this seems to have worked, I now no longer have any of the preinstalled Lenovo software.

Hi,     I have recently bought a Thinkpad Edge (AMD / L625) to replace my dependable but very aged Dell Precision M50. The Think Pad Edge I think is a great machine and does everything that I want it to do. One minor niggle and I think it only bugs me because of my engineering background is the systems specs. The Toshiba Satellite T135D-S1325 which is powered by the same processor and chipset can support 8GB of RAM, whereas the Edge can only support 4GB. Given that the memory controller is integrated into the Turion CPU and it is unlikely that Lenovo had AMD fab a custom CPU, shouldn't the edge also support 8GB of RAM. Has anyone tested an 8GB of RAM on an edge?If so does it work?Have Lenovo limited the Edge's RAM capacity through its hardware or software implementation?One final question if the system does support 8GB of RAM does the RADION 3200 IGP then take control of 512MB of system ram, rather than the 256MB when using 4GB of RAM. I was only thinking about this upgrade as a midlife refresh to give the system a little bit more horsepower. Kingston, Crucial and Corsair, to name just a few all make compatible 4GB memory modules, or atleast they conform to the specs of the current 2GB modules. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Chris

Answer:Thinkpad EDGE - AMD - 8GB RAM ?

welcome to the forum!
 
since the edge likely wasn't tested with 6GB or 8GB, the specs didn't reflect the system's full capability.   the same thing happened with the X61 and T61 systems.   they were rated at 4GB maximum but many users (myself included) are successfully running 8GB.
 
i'm not personally aware of any limitations in memory.   8GB and even 16GB (if 8GB DDR3 modules are ever released to the public) should be possible.
 
with that said, i cannot say definitively whether 8GB is supported but i'd be very, very surprised if it weren't.   i have an edge sitting on my desk with 2 x 2GB installed but unfortunately don't have any 4GB DDR3 modules to test.   if i get my hands on a 4GB module or two before this system leaves my office then i'll let you know the results.
 
enjoy your new system!

Is there total driver/hardware support for XP Pro SP3 x32/x64 on the new Thinkpad Edge 14? Thanks!

Answer:XP Pro x32/x64 on Thinkpad Edge 14

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74581 looks like everything is there for 32 bit, doesn't look like 64 bit is supported.

Question: Thinkpad Edge 15

Hi,I am planning to buy a Thinkpad Edge 15 with Core i5. Can someone suggest me whether this model is good? Purpose is to do some office work, internet and mostly watching movies. ThanksJR

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 15

Can't comment myself on the Edge 15, however, based on my recommendation from experiences of ThinkPads past (600 and X21) and present (X100e), my girlfriend is about to order the top-spec Edge 15 from Lenovo, you could also check out reviews such as: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/index.cfm?reviewId=3226563

Question: Thinkpad Edge 525

Hi,i had a problem with the monitor backlight on my E525. It went totally gone and i needed a flashlight to see anything. I deinstalled the graphics drivers and it was fine again. I just see everything in 1024*786 and it says "standard vga graphics card" because i have no driver. Now i want to reinstall the Lenovo drivers, but on the homepage i dont find the graphic drivers for E525.Can anyone help? Thanks alot!

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 525

Hi, startrip
 
I think I found what you're looking for. This is the driver for the AMD graphics that your computer uses. To find drivers on Lenovo's site easily, go to support.lenovo.com, click on Driver Matrix, select the line of computer you have (ThinkPad, ThinkCentre, etc.) and then select your system. 
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Question: Thinkpad Edge 14

I've recently received my Edge 14 and upon unboxing, I noticed the top of the laptop (the back of the screen) is curved.  I've seen countless videos and customer photos of their Edge and have not seen this on their's.  The curved screen is very noticeably.  You can also see that the speakers are curved as well due to it.  Does anyone know if its suppose to be like this?  If not then do you think I can get a full refund and none of that 15% restocking free junk?  Besides, I don't think I'm at fault here but rather who ever built the thing.  I am fairly disappointed to see this because I hear Thinkpads are quality built.  This is my first Thinkpad and my first impression was it is just another cheaply made laptop.  I've also bought the sleeve for this and that doesn't even fit properly.  Theres a huge gap when you place the laptop in.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 14

Hello mate, Can you take a photo of your laptop ?And for the sleeve, it's because you've got the room for the AC adapter.

Hello, I am going to be using this laptop for Senior School, already 1 term in and am hating the laptop we recieved 2 years ago. I would prefer if a Lenovo Staff or Moderator can confirm if this is possible to buy as it's not on the Customize page. With the 14" model, I can get the 9 cell battery option but no choice of the Intel Centrino Advanced 6200N wireless card, and with the 15" model I can't get either. I know it's possible to use that card with the edge, but why isn't it avaialable to choose? The same with the 15" with a 9 cell battery option? Cheers, Matt. [This is from the Australian Store]

just recently bought my first laptop and got good recommendations on lenovo...however i have found everything else to be fairly frustrating. There are no instructions regarding inital battery setup to ensure lengevity in the box. i called customer service. i looked online. they directed me to go back online and read a manual which still did not have the proper information and was organized extremely poorly. basically im just venting a little about my lack of satisfaction and wondering how to get the most out of battery/. I have looked everywhere.

Answer:New Thinkpad edge 14

New owner here also. There was limited documentation in the box, and on the last pages of something that looked like generic policy / license info, I found a few basic instructions. Of note, the battery may not have full capacity until it has been fully charged and discharged for several cycles. Agreed documentation is not the best, but everything is pretty straightforward, except detailed configurations, which is always trial and error. So far, I really like the notebook.

Hi there, I just took delivery of a new ThinkPad T420s which was shipped to me express directly from the Lenovo factory in Kunshan, China.  One group of keys makes a very distinct, loud noise versus the rest of the keys: the DELETE, HOME, END, PGUP, PGDN group.  I'm very familiar with ThinkPad keyboards (I am writing this on a T410s).   When I press one the keys in the group, there is a very noticeable clunking sound coming from underneath them.  The keys do work, but it is a horrible sound compared to the rest of the keys on the keyboard.  My T410s does nothing like this, and I just configured three other T420s systems for other people a few weeks ago and I don't recall them exhibiting this kind of sound. Has anyone else noticed this on the T420s?  Should I be returning this system or arranging on on-site service call to have it looked at?

My battery on the Thinkpad edge says only 27 % left. We tried to reset, but nothing happened. What should we do?

Answer:Battery Thinkpad Edge 15

Hey there Nancy,
 
If you could, please provide us with a few more details. I see your using a ThinkPad Edge 15, about how long have you had the machine? What is the machine type and model number of your machine? (It should be in this format: XXXX-XXX) and usually is found on the underside of the machine on the label next to the serial number, or in the battery compartment on the label located there.
 
Is this an overtime decrease, or is all of a sudden?
 
Have you tried a static discharge? Here is how to perform the Thinkpad static discharge:

Unplug the power supply
Remove the battery
Disconnect any cords or express cards
Press the power button 10 times, and on the 10th press hold it for 30 seconds

 
Some of the ThinkPad Edge 15's needed a battery firmware update to correct an issue with the charge %. Have you tried using this firmware update?
 
I look forward to hearing back from you nancywintner!
