G580 - Can't find machine type, model type, and SN seems to be wrong?

Question: G580 - Can't find machine type, model type, and SN seems to be wrong?

Hi!I was wondering if anyone could help me with this issue. My G580 is still inside the warranty and started showing this flickering lines and areas of the screen that are a complete mess. I am trying to request a service to get it fixed but I am asked for a machine type, model type, and serial number. I found the serial number but the form keeps complaining that it should be a maximum of 9 characters (and mine has 10). And for the machinge type and model type, I just can't find them. There's nothing on the sticker showing a model like it is shown in the help section. Can anyone help me please? Thank you!

Preferred Solution: G580 - Can't find machine type, model type, and SN seems to be wrong?

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: G580 - Can't find machine type, model type, and SN seems to be wrong?

Hi afm, welcome to the forums,

have you had a look under the battery? Quite often the sticker detailing the information will be there, it can also be found on the box if you still have it or on the first screen after entering BIOS.

Hi All,  I had a hard drive crash on my R50 (1836-3SU) several months ago.  Being one of the few (?) who didn't first create a Recovery CD, I loaded WinXP on a new drive, then loaded the appropriate utilities from Lenovo.  I've noticed that, when either having the Lenovo website detect my laptop or when invoking ThinkVantage System Update locally, neither can detect the type and model of my machine.  It invariably comes up with 0123456 or 0123-456 as the type/model. (Must be a null or default value...)  I've scratched around a little to see if I can force the proper information into a registry setting or config file but I've had no luck finding anything.  Is there a way to set the proper machine type/model for proper detection by the Lenovo website?   Thanks!

Answer:R50 System Update - Machine type and model wrong

I'd also like to know how to correct this.  When Lenovo changed the system updating procedure from Access Connections(?) to System Update roughly at the end of 2007, my machine type and model also changed to '0123-456'  . I have been unable to get a single update since.

Answer:How can I find out if a laptop has IPS/Touch screen using only the machine type model?

HiI agree, it's a bit complicated to determine specific panel type.1. Possible panel types are shown in the PSREF fileshttp://psref.lenovo.com/BookIn a lot of cases it's enough to determine laptop's panel type by its resolution using PSREF.
Screen resolution of the apecific laptop is shown on the support page by laptop MTM. For example:_http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t450/20BV/0006USHave a look at the URL above, there is MTM devided by slash. You'll get laptop specification, panel resolution including.2. If you want to check out panel FRU p/n, very often - its manufacturer p/n, do the following.- open parts lookup pagehttps://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup- type in the laptop MTM (except of the CTO models) or its serial number. You'll get a list of parts, LCD including, it might include panel manufacturer p/n - open laptop fru_bom file (get it on the laptop support page), specify panel description by its FRU p/n- if information above isn't enough, have a Google search. Or use the sites with information about laptop, panelook is one of the most informative.Touch panels are specified in the PSREF file, in the laptop short description (example above, there is "Multitouch" definition)

hello i want to update the warrenty of my lenovo laptop. I went on the site and they asked for machine type and model i found it using various ways but its not a 7digit number its 20366. ( i have a lenovo z40-70) . Is it correct or am i doing something wrong?  there is another blank for lenovo po/ contact # and i dont know what to put there or what that even means can someone please help me

Answer:lenovo PO/contact # and machine type and model

hi sherifyousef251,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Depending on the country / region where the machine is sold, the Machine Type Model can be a 5-digit number (e.g., 20366), 7digit (e.g., 8215-E1U), or 8 digit (e.g., 59-424252). Since the Z40-70 is new, you'll likely have the 8-digit machine type. You can verify this by checking your invoice receipt or the site where you purchased the unit (for online purchases) -----like this item 
 
If you can't find any 8 digit machine type, you can also send me a private message regarding your machine's serial number to check the warranty information on your system.
 
In addition, the  Lenovo PO# (Purchased Order #) / Contact # can be found on your invoice receipt, If you purchased the item online, the invoice receipt will be sent to your email address.

Hi All, Can someone please explain the various codes/sequences used in MTM information of Thinkapd Laptops ? As an example, for if MTM is 20FMA02QIG, then Machine Type is 20FM And what does the remaining part 'A02QIG' conveys ?What all useful information can we have ? Does it includes Country Code/Month of Manufacture etc... Basically, while searching for Compatible Parts for my T460 here: http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/partslookup , The 'Compatibility' section only list the FIRST Four letters of a particular system. Example below: ?    It seems  ALL models which start with 20FM and 20FN are compatible with this particular battery: 45N1773.

I received a replacement motherboard for my A55 and updated the BIOS to current.  THEN I realized the MTM and SN are showing INVALID.  So I'd like to push the correct MTM and SN back to the BIOS.  This is mainly because when I do a ThinkVantage System Update, I won't have to fill in the MTM because currently it is blank. I tried to re-update the BIOS with the latest revision, putting in the MTM and SN, but it refuses to update the BIOS since it is the same version now. I tried going to an older revision but it refuses to update to an older revision. What can I do to get my MTM and SN pushed back to the BIOS?  My OS = WXP Pro.  

Answer:How To Correct The Machine-Type-Model & SN In BIOS

Well I figured out what I was doing wrong. The fact is, you CAN update the MTM & SN using the WinPhlash BIOS update utility.  If you've already flashed your BIOS to current, all you have to do is tell WinPhlash to update the DMI only, and put in the MTM & SN.  It works.

ThinkPad Edge 11, Laptop 11.6" screen Intel Celeron U3400 @1.07GHz
On the plate underneath the laptop, it says : type 0328-A11 s/n xxxxx   11/01  Product ID 0328A11
 
I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate, and while most things are working, Wifi is not. In the Device Manager there are 3 devices with a yellow flag, a Network Controller, A PCI Simple Communication Controler and an Other device, and I am guessing they are the devices that make Wifi work. If I try to do a driver update for them, the result is 'no driver found', so I want to download appropriate drivers from Lenovo. 
 
When I 'search by product name, serial number, machine type' on the Lenovo site using any of the above info from the plate underneath the laptop, the Lenovo site always says 'Sorry, no products were found that match that query'

The screen says 'Please DO NOT close this page. It will close automatically when the process is complete'. Well, after 8 hours, my feeling is, it is not going to complete, so the Lenovo Service Bridge is not going to help me..
 
So, how do I get to the appropriate download page on the Lenovo website for my laptop so I can download the drivers ?

I'm currently looking at some different T420 laptops, and I assume that one of the better ways to find the exact specification for each machine is via the product number (although some things may have been changed by the first owner, such as for example RAM or SSD). Most of the specifications can be found quite easily, the different models share many things, and finally, some things are quite easy to spot, such as the fingerprint reader.When reading up on the T420 I, at first, found a "tech specs" PDF (together with a general data sheet); while interesting the tech specs only covered a couple of different models, and most of them were probably destined to another region than Europe. Then, while reading some threads in this forum, I found a link to a recent version of the ThinkPad Withdrawal Book.So, my question is simply: does this Withdrawal Book cover all T420 models, i.e. all combinations sold?Probably not; then there wouldn't be a single machine with, for example, 2520M or 2540M, HD+ and wireless wan; which I think is rather common combinations. Indeed, most of the time there is no mention of a wireless wan card, even in files covering current models.I guess there can be some custom models not mentioned. Main interest is the combination of CPU, display and WWAN. The latter, WWAN, can of course be upgraded. However, I also noticed that there were some model that didn't come with Bluetooth, and since that is quite handy, I guess it's important as well.

Answer:Seeking information about T420 product numbers, i.e. machine type and model

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I'm not an owner of your model, but usually the machine type is listed on the first page of the BIOS Setup screen and on a label on the bottom of the laptop.  Page #23 of your model's User Guide will explain how to enter the BIOS Setup.  For your reference, here is a link to that guide........
 
http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/g410_g510_ug_en.pdf
 
An alternative is to use the link I have listed below to look up your warranty information.  Just enter the Serial Number of your laptop into the Serial Number box on that webpage.  The Serial Number information will be listed on the bottom of your laptop and it will be shown on the first page of the BIOS Setup screen.

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

Hi! I have Lenovo G580 manufactured in 2012 (with Intel Core i3-2370M 2.40GHz), and I want to place SSD instead of CD/DVD ROM. I am not experienced with upgrading, and I don't know which SSD and caddy socket I should choose (2.5, 1.8 mSata, M.2 and also whether 2.5'' or 3.5''), would you like to help me? CD/DVD ROM model is Phillips Lite-on DS-8A8SH20C, it looks very much like 45N7592 LENOVO PHILLIPS & LITE-ON DS-8A8SH20C H INTERNAL/TRAY SATA OPTICAL DRIVE , socket is like third picture.

Answer:Which SSD and SSD caddy type for Lenovo G580 (instead of CD/DVD ROM)?

hi pneumokok,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
From page 103 of the G580 HMM, the ODD is a 12.7mm so a 12.7mm HDD caddy should do the trick.
 - Sample item
 
As for the SSD, most users I've seen uses a 2.5" Samsung SSD so it'll be best if you go with this brand too for best cmopatibility.
 
Sample videos:

Answer:Why does my "." key press "event" on my Lenovo G580 type(20150) laptop?

hi NSKA,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It seems like the "." key is physically stucked.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Remove and reinsert the keyboard ribbon.
 
Video guide:
Lenovo G580 keyboard replacement
 
2. Follow this guide on how to remove problematic key then clean the inside with compressed air or cotton swab that's damped with 99% isoprophyl alcohol to remove dirt/dust then put back the key and observe.
 
If cleaning the key doesn't work but removing the key cap makes the "......" key press stop while booting (login screen) then you may need to replace the key or the entire keyboard.
 
3. If it's not convenient to replace the problematic key or or disassemble the keyboard, try to disable the "." key in the registry by using Sharpkeys (or similar utility) and use a key that you don't use like the "INS" (Insert) key and make it function like the ".".key.
 
If this works then you can use this as a workaround until you can replace the problematic key or the entire keyboard.

 On the base of my Z61t Titanium, the type-model label says 9441-A34 But ThinkVantage & PC-Doctor software reports my unit as BW2A-SIT !?!As such i can't do any automated software updating since ThinkVantage sends BW2A-SIT instead of 9441-A34 to the download servers & the responce is no updates available for my system or that they can't identify my system. Under 'Advance' section, ThinkVantage probes my system to a Thinkpad Z62e !!But is there really such a model ever produced or is it an abandoned prototype model etc.?? I don't understand this because as far as i know, all Thinkpads have 4 numeric digit type & 3 alpha-numeric digit model #'s ?  In terms of CPU, GPU, chipset & overall hardware features what's inside my unit looks 'normal' to me & does appear toconform to specs shown under 9441-A34 from the IBM/Lenovo website for Z61t. So why is it what's detected does not tally with what's on the product label on the base of the unit ?

Hoping someone can answer this.  We sell overstock new items (including computers).  We just received a shipment of HP EliteBook 820 G2 laptops (new & sealed).  Unfortunately, the outside of the box does not give me any information as to the processor type or speed other that an Intel Inside sticker on the outside of the box.  The product codes are P2C18UT#ABA,  P2C22UT#ABA.  Is there a way to tell by this code the processor type / speed / amt of ram on each of these?  I really do not want to have to crack the factory seal unless absolutely necessary.  Thanks in advance for any insight.

Answer:Can you tell the process type / speed by the model #?

Had to reimage a laptop, noticed that the drivers didn't get copied over from the image.  Went to lenovo.com to auto-detect the laptop and grab the needed drivers, only to find out why the image didn't work right as it is reporting the wrong type-model info.  TP-1-R__ is reported by the "Auto-detect this system" tool.  The product label shows 2374-CU4 with a SN of 99-xxxxx.  I updated to the 3.23 BIOS via the no-diskette download step 2 option.  Upon the reboot I then re-ran the utility to access step 3 to update the model number.  It reports the current type-model as "____-___" (the underscores are really blank spaces) and when I attempt to edit the values I can only type after the dash, so I'm only allowed to enter "____-CU4".  Upon updating and rebooting, it doesn't really seem to matter anyways, as it still reports the TP-1-R__ value in the auto detect tool.

You can do KVM over IP, but it is very expensive. For a 4 port option, you are looking at close to $300. Dell has a 16 port one for about $1,300.

I've got two X201 laptops, that seem identical, except for the processor (one is an i5 2.4. and the other is an i5 2.53).  Also, the computer "type" is different on them.  One is a 3249 and the other is a 3680.  The only reason I care is that I was moving a hard drive from one of the laptops to the other laptop and figured the hardware is identical (besides the processor type) and that it wouldn't have any issues.  When Windows tries to boot with the first hard drive in the second system, I constantly get the blue screen.  Windows can't seem to repair the windows install, and if I put the hard drive back in the original system, it boots just fine.  I can't believe that just a higher speed processor would cause this to blue screen.  I've swapped hard drives between "like" dell systems in the past with no problems (even when there were different processors, but the same model laptop).  Why do they have so many "type's" of this system and does anyone know where I can find the differences.  You would think the types and differences would be posted somewhere but I can't find it.

Hi! Can anyone, please, confirm whether E440 and T440, T440P, T440S, T540P, W540 (or at least E540, E531 or E431) models' touchpad models are exactly the same, i.e. interchangeable? Mine got broken, in seems, but I can buy above mentioned models' touchpads for pretty cheap here. E440 spare parts are not even freely available in my country.Thank you! 

Answer:E440 touchpad model type - is it the same as E431?

OK, after measuring photos with ruler on my display (...), I came to this conslusion: The only same-sized touchpad as E440 is a touchpad for the E431.Can you, please, confirm that it should be compatible? On photos, it looks exactly the same as mine in E440.

Answer:IBM Thinkpad model 1542 Type 2611

under the laptop there will be a square shaped plastic and will have a picture of a cylinder representing the hard drive. there should be a screw holding down the plastic so u want to remove that. once its removed, slide it open and ull see the hard drive. now do what ever you want

Existing machine Vista, but was thinking of rebuilding Win 7 32bit.I've worked through the various screens under Lenovo support, but machine doesn't seem to tie in number wise.The support screen asks for the Model (G550) then offers a single model choice of 2958, then offers a list with each item comprising of three letters. Now my serial number plate (non barcode type) doesn't have these three letters. I just have G550 Model 2958 and a serial No and a MO number (whatever that is). Can anyone tell me how I establish which of the three letters applies to my machine?TIA--------------------Hi nblainWelcome to the forumsThe three letters should be below the laptop. If you are not able find it, you can refer to the psref and see the configuration and then come to the conclusion what the letters.

Is there an application (command line perferred) that can query a computer and get its model type and serial number. I know IBM Director can do this, but it requires a running agent on client computer.
 

Answer:How to query remote PC to get monitor model/type + serial

You could use PSEXEC from sysinternals to remotely run a command prompt on another computer. The systeminfo command will show you the model number in Windows XP. I am not sure how to get the serial number.

Hi, I recently bought a P50s used, and I'm having trouble determining the serial number and model type. There is only one sticker on the bottom which reads "S481D0100260000XX 15/09" (where XX is two more numbers). 15/09 must be the build date, but the rest is a mystery. Going into the BIOS, it indicates that the first part "48106D0100" is the system type and "260000XX" is the Serial Number. But Lenovo's web page doesn't recognize either of these as model types or serial numbers. I'm pretty positive that it's a genuine Thinkpad. It has a US keyboard, a 1980 (non-touch) display, an I5-6300 processor, 8Gb of RAM and a 500 Gb HDD. Aside from the difficulty in getting support, I think that the serial number issue is preventing Thinkvantage Update (tvus) from working properly. The "Scan for your serial number" web page option doesn't work either. Does anyone recognize this format and know how to get a usable serial number? Thanks!

It seems to be a legit MT-M.  It shows both Win 8.1 and 7 so it may have shipped with 7 via downgrade rights.

Question: T450s Machine Type

Hi, i have a t450s with machine type 20BWS5K400. I searched the forum also google but i couldn't find any answers about that type. I want to learn that, is that machine type is good or bad if we will compare other machine type. Is it in the bottom or top in the list ? My second question is that, how can i understand the factory specs on that machine type ? Is there a SIM card board on integrated by default or not ? Please help me about to understand machine type. What is mean 20, BWS or 5K or 400 ?

Answer:T450s Machine Type

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't parse the individual characters in the MT-M.  Go to SUPPORT (above), enter the MT-M in the search box, and click Machine Info.  That produces the below:
 
Processor: 1x Intel Core i7-5600U Processor(i7-5600U): : Memory: 1x 4GB DDR3L 1600: : Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 10 Pro(EN:English,TR:Turkish): : Hard Drive: 1x 512GB: : Wireless Network: 1x Bluetooth Version 4.0: : Ports: 1x 1 integrated VGA port: : Camera: 1x 720p HD Camera: : Graphics: 14.0 FHD: : Monitor: 3 Year On-site
 
It doesn't mention WWAN so it looks like there's no cellular card installed.

Question: HD. Wrong type?

My sister has a Gateway PC, with MS-6312 flex ATX WH 11 mobo. Had a Samsung SV0643D 6.4 gig HD, full.I fitted a WDCaviar WD200BB 20 gig HD, formatted & reloaded XP Pro with SP2.Runs OK when first installed, then on restart,goes to blank screen with flashing cursor in top left, refuses to go further. PC sounds as if its working as normal!!I wiped the old HD, reinstalled, works OK. Tried A Maxtor 90845D4 H.D.- that runs OK.Colud the 20gig me faulty-going to try this in my own PC- or do I need a particular type of HD for this rather aged mobo?It has 256x PC133.Help please!

Answer:HD. Wrong type?

I've had this problem with old mobos and the only workaround I could find was to put the new hardrive in as master and put the old one in as slave. The old one doesn't need to have anything on it. It just needs to be physically installed so the mobo will work. I think its a bios problem.

Dear all, I am planning on replacing my Quadro410 with a more recent and more powerful video card to be able to play a game (or two). I like to play flight simulators, though FlightGear 2017 does not run with the 512MB VRAM my Quadro410 can offer. Their wiki recommends 1-2 GB vram (and the more CUDA cores the better). Here is my question: what video card would you recommend me taking into consideration my requirements (1-2GB), my limitation with the thinkcentre chassis and the fact that I want to spend as little as possible?(Generally, I am not a gamer, so I don't need the very latest and best.) Also, I prefer AMD Radeon cards over Nvidia because of the driver situation in GNU Linux. But please feel free to suggest both brands. Many thanks!
