Upgrading from a Bay Trail Atom tablet to a Core M3 tablet worth it?

Question: Upgrading from a Bay Trail Atom tablet to a Core M3 tablet worth it?

I am currently on a Dell Venue 11 5130 with a Bay Trail Atom Z3770 and 2GB ram. While it serves the purpose of my usage of office suites and web browsing, I could use a little faster tablet. It would stutter if I have more than 5 tabs open on Edge. But there is nothing wrong with this tablet with a plenty of battery life and nothing broken after using if for close to 4 years now.
I am looking at a Dell Latitude 11 5175 tablet with a Core M3 and 4GB of ram. Is this upgrade worth it? Or should I save some more money to get the Core M5 version for around $150 more? My usage is office word, and youtube.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

To make it simple, I've been searching for a portable device for productivity at university that doesn't cost much for any office apps, web and pdf.
So far, there's the Asus Transformer mini T102HA with 4gb ram and intel atom x5 for only 285$, but there's also news that the first PC with snapdragon processor is coming at the end of 2017.
Therefore, is ARM tablet going to cost like the atom or where along the pentium/celeron, m3/m5 and i3/i5/i7 processors ?

The bay trail tablets come with office 2013 preinstalled, I cracked my asus t100 and wanted to move office to my new dell venue 11 pro core i3 version. I downloaded office and it got to the point where it needed to check if any other computers are using the license. So of course with it being activated on the asus it didn't let me. So is there anyway of deactivating it from the asus and transferring it to the dell or is the office version "special" that came with the bay trail tablets?

Answer:Possible to transfer microsoft office from bay trail tablet to new tablet?

Uninstall it on the T100?

Question: ATOM Tablet

I've tried installing XP Pro SP3 on to an ATOM Tablet, after the files have been copied to the hard drive and the unit reboots, I get the message "Missing or Corrupt hal.dll". Is this due to XP not discovering the hardware correctly?

I'm only downgrading due to the graphics chip struggling under Windows 7 Home Premium. It's an Intel GMA 500 so should work better than I've seen under Win 7.

Answer:ATOM Tablet

I have seen this before, some newer bios's are not compatible with XP, XP setup cannot determine what type of HAL to use.

Not sure anything can be done about it.

Another way to make XP obsolete.

Looking at bestbuy, Amazon, manufacturer sites, it seems no one is actually selling any of those Atom tablets they've been hyping for so long. Only thing that seems to be available are the Surface, Asus Vivo Tab RT, regular and touchscreen laptops. Am I missing something or could it be true what was rumoured that Intel hasn't got their power management drivers ready?

Answer:Anyone seen an x86 Atom tablet for sale?

I heard from a top Mfg that Intel had a bug that had to be resolved, maybe that's the power driver issue you speak of. I didn't ask for details but I'd sure like to get my hands on an Atom-based Windows 8 pro tablet!

windows 7 (32 and 64 bit have been tried)
java 6 version 13 & 33 have been tried
java 7 latest version has been tried
looked at the bios settings, and there were none that could be changed, that would do anything

when i click on the java control panel applet, it gives not error. nothing.

when i try to run javaw.exe or javacpl.exe i get the same thing.

when i go to event viewer. there is an error 1000 there. just says there was a fault in module javaw.exe

each OS install was fresh and java was the 1st thing installed.

i am wondering if there is an issue with atom cpu's and java....

Answer:why can't i get java to run on my NEW atom tablet ?

What tablet is this? From where did you install java? I've installed the JRE on an HP Slate 500 from Oracle's site with no problems.

So I was able to get hardware accelerated hevc playback with my gtx 960 by checking HEVC and UHD under the LAV decoder section of mpc-hc. however, I couldn't get hardware accelerated hevc playback on my x5-z8300 tablet which supposedly does have hevc hardware decoding. anyone have any suggestion?

Answer:how can i get hevc hardware acceleration with cherry trail tablet and mpc-hc?

It may depend on what you're attempting to play: the Cherry Trail support appears to be hardware acceleration aka decoding support for h.265 HEVC video streams with 8-bits of color depth - if you're attempting to play back 10-bit color depth files (popular nowadays, for whatever reason and yes I know 10-bit can be more efficient than 8-bit in some situations with some content) it's not going to work.

8-bit h.265 HEVC is the standard with respect to hardware acceleration/decoding support at this point, but soon enough 10-bit will most likely be added to processors and GPUs as well but at this time based on the specs of Cherry Trail, it's just 8-bit standard support.

If you're using 8-bit h.265 HEVC content then this becomes a moot thing I suppose and the issue lies elsewhere. You didn't say the file(s) you're attempting to play did not play at all, you just said they don't appear to be hardware accelerated/decoded during playback so, if they are actually playing but at a reduced framerate, laggy, stuttering, audio/video out of sync kind of problems then yes the hardware acceleration/decoding isn't working properly. It could be a driver issue for the GPU support (make sure you're using the latest from Intel of course), or a setting in MPC-HC with the LAV filters but you already know that much.

I kinda suspect it's an 8-bit vs 10-bit problem but I could be and probably am wrong.

Hello everyone and thank you for your time and help.
I am looking to create the ultimate mobile powerhouse setup.
I want to use the new Intel Core i7 NUC - www*intel*com/content/www/us/en/nuc/nuc-kit-nuc5i7ryh*html
and I need help finding a low latency wireless touch monitor solution.
Is it possible to use a bay trail tablet as a wireless touch monitor, possibly using splashtop over WiFi direct? The only other wireless monitor solution I have found is the lenovo ThinkVision LT1423p 13.3-inch IPS LED Backlit LCD Wireless Touch Monitor w/pen
The problem is that this has a 35ms latency which is unacceptable, and costs 360 (in London)
I am hoping to use the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows (13") - shop*lenovo*com/us/en/tablets/lenovo/yoga-tablet-series/yoga-tablet-2-win-13/
It has a Intel Atom Z3745 Processor with 2mb cache, 4gb ram and 802.11abgn WLAN network card.
I have a li-ion battery which would power the core i7 nuc for 7 hours which is more than enough (it only weighs 1.25kg)
I work from coffee shops and so would have the NUC sat atop the Li-ion Battery in a commuter bag on the floor, and the 13" tablet on the table.
What would be the best solution? Would it be splashtop over WiFi direct? or some other medium?
who much latency would I expect from your solution?
All thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks again for taking time to consider this, this project will be interesting.

I was browsing Tablet PCs recently (looking to buy one now that the hype is over and they're more affordable) and I noticed some that came with XP Tablet edition (home/pro) and some that just came with XP home/pro.

Is it really worth the extra $$$ to get the "tablet edition" on a tablet PC or are you just as well off to go with regular XP and the normal touch-screen-input driver?

Answer:is "tablet edition" worth the extra $$$ on a tablet PC?

How much more do they want for tablet over xp pro?

Tablet PC is xp pro with the tablet pc fuctions added. If you are getting a tablet then get the os that works best with it.

hello fellow microsofties, I recently "upgraded"(more like sidegraded) from an asus M81C to a nuvision TM800W610L mostly for the nicer screen and body and it went all good there, only problem is I expected it to be as fast or a bit faster than the asus since it has a newer atom chip which is lower end but should be just as good or better than the older higher end I had while consuming less power
but that has hardly been the case, it is noticeably slower than the asus, and I blame the OS being 64bit for that, frankly I don't see the reasoning behind a 2gb non-upgradeable device running x64, the battery seems to be worse too, anyway, I can't seem to find a way to make this thing boot a x86 w10 drive no matter what, does anyone have a clue how to fix this? and even more confusing is I can boot an x86 linux distro just fine, so it obviously isnt locked to x64
I ended up fresh installing the x64 OS and yet again everything feels the same, multitasking is noticeably worse because ram usage is higher than on x86, from a fresh boot the x86 tablet has 1.2/2gb ram usage while the x64 sits at 1.5/2gb

I describe myself as computer-proficient yet I am puzzled by what problem is causing my Samsung ATIV 500T tablet (with atom x86 processor and 32-bit Win8) to do these two things:

1. Whenever I reboot the computer and after it boots into the 'metro' start screen, a horizontal bar with the following notice appears:

Your PC ran into aproblemThis problem causedyour PC to restart. You can send info to Microsoft about what went wrong tohelp us improve Windows.
Send details Don't send

I bought it on Oct 28th, the day after Win 8 was released and this started happening in December. Every time I restart I will see this. Sometimes I send the details sometimes I click "don't send". Either way the system will make a minidump file. It's mostly an annoyance as it always works fine afterwards. It never BSOD'd.

2. Recently I noticed the computer cannot be turned off! When I turn it off it will first log out and power itself off, with the power light out. But in about 10 seconds the machine will turn it self on again, go through the Samsung logo, straight to the log in screen. This has caused the tablet battery to completely die in its bag during one long trip, though I thought I turned it off. I suspect these two are related. Could it be some driver issue? Could it be manufacturer defect? You help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Bizarre crash notice every time I reboot my Atom tablet

There are several reports missing from the uploaded files. Please generate an MSINFO32 report and a systeminfo report

Here's how to do the MSINFO32:

Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to the C:\Users\Public\Desktop directory to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.

For the systeminfo report, do this:

1) Open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt
2) Type in the following and press Enter:

systeminfo >%userprofile%\Desktop\systeminfo.txt

3) Zip up the systeminfo.txt file from your Desktop and upload it with your next post.

Hope that helps, maybe someone else will have a better comparison for you.

Does anyone here have any experience of the Linx 10 Windows tablet?
It can currently be bought for 159 (109 with rebate) which seems like a good deal, especially when you consider that it also has a year's subscription to Office 365 included (two seats.)
But is it really worth it? I'll rarely be running demanding Windows desktop apps, and will probably stick with apps from the store. Browsing, email, YouTube and Spotify will be my main uses, but a little document editing may be undertaken if my laptop isn't to hand.
I'm not sure if an Android tablet would be a better option. (I'm not overly enamoured with Android, though we have several Android phones/tablets in the house already.)

Answer:[UK] Linx 10 tablet - worth a punt?

Its personal preference... Sadly some of the cheap Windows tablets out there run slow, but doesn't sound like you'll need much grunt from the processor.
Give it a try, and for just over 100, it's not a bad punt!

My Wacom tablet's pen has died and I hope to have a new one arriving in a few days but in the meantime I dug out an old Hanvon Rollick tablet which isn't supported under Windows 10 (which I use) but I nevertheless found some Windows 7 drivers for it which people reported working under Windows 10.

The problem is my PC is trying to behave like a tablet e.g. putting that blue teardrop thing on text boxes on Chrome (I'm not sure of its correct name) and when I try to ctrl-click a link, it shows a little "ctrl" label under the cursor and won't open the link in a new tab like it's supposed to and just does it in the same tab.

It takes multiple tries to right-click and open a link and when I hover over the link the cursor keeps rapidly flashing between the arrow and finger icons.

It is very difficult to click minimise, restore or close on Chrome because hovering over them doesn't make them go red and clicking on them doesn't tend to make them do anything unless you try many, many times.It's being profoundly irritating in programs other than Chrome too but those are some examples.

Perhaps the cable got severed when you were turning it around? I've had a Wifi antenna cable break this way on an HP tablet... If it's still under warranty have them check it and replace it if necessary. It could also be a loose connector but there's no way to be sure without opening the screen assembly.

hi guys i really want to try a windows 8 tablet and i plan to buy it either by the end of this month or by next January. I am confused on what to pick though
First of all, the reason why I want a windows 8 tablet IS because i like the interface. but more importantly, i need metatrader and cTrader in legacy app as im a full time forex trader. I have metatrader in my iphone but you cant seriously compare that with the windows version (no tabbing, no lines drawing, no fibonacci, etc.). cTrader doesnt even exist there.
im looking to replace my macbook pro (which btw i also installed windows 8 on it through parallels virtual desktop) with a windows 8 tablet to support my trading while im outside
So basically I dont need a super i7 tablet or something. However, im curious to know how windows 8 atom tablets perform. I have seen enough reviews and some people says atom tablets perform badly in legacy apps. Question is, how bad is that bad? Does it lag so bad even though i dont need to run heavy apps like adobe? I only need to run these trading apps which btw are very light. You can compare them with MS paint i believe, just with constant connection.
would it do well in atom tablets? I dont want lags when i switch from win8 native apps to metatrader and cTrader.

I have upgraded to Windows 8 64 bit on my X61 Tablet, however I cannot get the tablet buttons, hotkeys, or auto-rotation to work. My understanding is that Lenovo has stopped supporting these products. I think it is a shame to stop using a perfectly working tablet PC with a superior LCD. I don't want to go back to Win 7 leaving all kinds of nice features on Windows 8. Any suggestions? Is there a hope? Koray

Answer:X61 Tablet Windows 8 - Tablet Button and Features Request

Hi koray,
I've been playing around with Windows 8 since the developers preview.  I've ran it on a lot of older systems.  Getting things to work will require some experimentation on your part.  
You can start with your Driver Matrix.  There you can find the Hotkeys Utility for Windows 8.  You will also need the Power Manager Driver for Windows 8.  Not Power Manager,  just the Power Manager Driver.  
Run Windows Update, it will probably find some stuff.  Some Windows 7 drivers will work, others won't.  
I'm running Windows 8 Pro on an x60 tablet and everything works fine.  I also have it on an x61 non-tablet and it runs fine. I had to do a lot of messing around with stuff to get them to work right though. 
Just make sure that you set system restore points before changing anything so you can get back what you had before, just in case something doesn't work right.  And, only install one thing at a time and reboot and test it out thoroughly before you install something else.  
Good luck with this,

i have lenovo thinkpad 2 tablet it was not running well so i decided to reset it ...
and it keeps on repeating the same thing...
please help me ....


If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

Well, I've finally had it. I've had my 6365 CTO X60 tablet pc for over a year now and last Monday I lost pen functionality in tablet pc mode in the afternoon after working fine in the morning. It works fine, even now after rotating the screen back to laptop mode. As soon as the screen is rotated back to tablet pc mode, no pen functionality but the mouse still works fine so I know it's functional in laptop mode but rotate back, all ok!  I did uninstall the Wacom drivers, restart, and then downloaded the tablet pc, windows xp version drivers from the site as instructed in a previous post. Unfortunately, the digitizer pen is still disabled in tablet pc mode and works fine when rotated back to laptop mode. I've called Lenovo tech support in Atlanta four times now and they've been totally useless. I wiped out my X60 tablet last Friday and used Rescue and Recovery to reinstall the operating system back to it's factory settings. I went back and unistalled and reinstalled the Wacom driver. Nothing. Since that didn't work either I've requested the box to ship this back to the Memphis Depot. Hopefully, I'll just get a new replacement machine that works but I'm so angry and frustrated w/ Lenovo's support because it's obvious that the people on the phone are not tech specialists and they couldn't even point me in a direction to get this fixed. It's cost me over a week now wo...

Answer:X60 tablet pc digitizer pen functionality disabled in tablet pc mode

Problem solved! While the support folks weren't able to fix the problem over the phone, they did overnite me a prepaid return box which I sent back that day. Two days later they overnited my X60 tablet back fixed with a note saying 'LCD enabled'. I'm impressed how quickly they got my tablet pc back up and running. I'm glad I got that 3-yr. support warranty because I usually opt out of those things. This totally paid for itself. I just wish I hadn't been so reluctant to send back my laptop because I do need it for work and I figured I wouldn't get it back for at least a week or longer. I was so frustrated and pessimistic that I forgot sometimes these problems do get fixed in a very satisfactory manner. It's too bad the initial steps that led to sending it back were so painful. Bottom line: Lenovo fixed my pc quickly, no questions asked. Thanks!

Hi all,    I have a really annoying x220 tablet disconnects from the internet whenever I enter tablet mode. The internet can be working perfectly fine while in non tablet mode but as soon as I switch to tablet mode, my internet disconnects. And if I switch back to non tablet mode from tablet mode, my internet returns almost instantaneously. I can load a page in non tablet mode with no problems, switch to tablet mode and the page stops loading. If I return back to non tablet mode the page resumes loading without so much as a pause or a hiccup. Also, when I switch the computer to tablet mode, wifi networks disappear off of the "available networks" list that were there before the switch.     I've tried everything, from updating network device drivers, reinstalling network device drivers, running diagnostics, reformatting my computer, uninstalling Norton Antivirus, system restoring to days before the last known working date in normal mode and safe mode, and contacting customer support (chat and call, managed to get a hold of a rep) but none of them have worked.    I also used to have a networking log before I reformatted/system reset to factory settings and there were a ton of errors with words like avsc manager failed to "something" ... I'll reinstall the thinkpad network managing program to create another log. Can someone please help me? My last resort is calling lenovo support again to have tech support come to hel... Read more

So the DV port on my asus eee pc 1005peb is failing, and got the idea from android central to look into tablet and tablet hybrids. I kind of like the idea of having a hybrid for both the netbook kind of experience combined with a tablet experience. I'm having trouble discovering what my brands and model options are for that type of device. I'm concerned from what little I have seen so far I'm going to be against a cost prohibitive wall compared to spending $100 to have the port replaced. I'm one to figure if I'm going to toss that kind of cash into a repair I might as well consider replacing it with something else instead of doing the repair.
For my desktop PC I hesitant on going to windows 8 because of a lot of negative stuff I've heard but at the same time I hear good stuff about it too. But when it comes to a portable device like my netbook and a tablet. I think hm windows 8 (not RT) sounds like it would be a good fit since it is designed for both traditional mouse and keyboard input and touchscreen input. Plus I would like to retain the software I use on my netbook to use on whatever replaces it. Something I can't do with my current HP touchpad with webOS and android (CM9) on it. I tried using both as a replacement for my netbook but in the end there were just too many things I didn't like about that.

Hey all, I have a weird problem.  My tablet buttons have stopped working-- but only in tablet mode.  That is, I can't rotate, or bring up the tablet shortcuts, or move around the screen in tablet mode.  Also autorotate doesn't work.  But if I switch out of tablet mode, I can do all of these things just fine (except for autorotate). Also, when I switch into tablet mode the screen doesnt rotate or anything, but when I switch out of tablet mode the screen rotates to the direction I defined in the settings (sometimes.. to be honest it seems pretty random to me).  I am running 32 bit vista w/ 4 gb ram on an x61 tablet with the latest drivers.  I have uninstalled the tablet button drivers and the lenovo system interface and reinstalled them already.. I have the latest APS. Help me out here.. I have no idea why this isn't working!  Don't make me have to reinstall vista to get the buttons working.. Tha'ts ridiculous!!  Arrrgh.

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link: The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

Hi giciorek,
I understand that your fan/temperature problems can be frustrating.  I would try updating your BIOS and also updating Power Manager.  (Some on the forum have tried downloading ThinkPad Fan Control, but that is not an official Lenovo solution.)
Download Power Manager here:
Download BIOS Update here:
In Power Manager, click Advanced at top right, you can Set Optimize Fan Control to Balance All Parameters under Battery Settings.  Set it to Reduce Noise Dynamically under AC.

If you are referring to the factory state recovery disk set, it will repartition your drive into the factory state, which is a single OS partion taking up most of the available disk capacity and a small Service partition.  You can't install "into" a particular partition from the disk set.
You can resize the operating system partition after installation.

However, on the bottom of my laptop is a Vista Business Product Key  . . .  Where is my XP Tablet 2003 product key? What if I wanted to do an OS refresh of XP Tablet without using the ThinkVantage software/bootup? What if my HD fails and I need to replace it? Does ThinkVantage offer to burn a cd/create an image or install of the Fresh XP OS install like Dell does? I know it offers to burn a recovery disk, but is that recovery disk just a restore point of the PC, or an actual OS installation. I really would like to be able to avoid the dependancy of ThinkVantage software on the hidden partition for restore and recovery. Also I guess whenever I'm ready to use Vista, how would I go about installing Vista?

Hi, Happy New Year. I replaced my old harddrive with a new one and I just installed windows xp tablet 2005 (not supplied from lenovo or ibm) on the new HD. Now it seems that a lot of drivers are missing. Like bluetooth, keyboard, wireless... The drivers are available to download from ibm's website, But I have to install 20+ drivers one by one. That is too much. After installing xp, my windows desktop showed no icons except for recycle bin (I believe this is due to drivers missing also). Anybody know is there a x60 tablet driver bundle/package cd image somewhere?

The learning curve on this machine is steep if you want to take advantage of all the input options but I've put the time in and I'm starting to love it. There is one thing I wish Lenovo would address though. I see plenty of ThinkPad users with this problem going back to at least 2008, and no solutions forthcoming. The manual states: "On the display bezel near the screen is a row of buttons with which you can control your computer in the tablet mode, without the use of the keyboard."By default the buttons are set to turn your computer off, press CTRL+ALT+DEL, or rotate the screen 90 degrees. The manual goes on to describe how you can customize these buttons via the Tablet Shorcut Menu, which is accessed via Start > Programs > Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools > Tablet Utility.If you open this program you get a dialog box titled "Auto Screen Rotation Settings." This dialog controls what orientation the screen should switch to when you convert into tablet. So it really doesn't have anything to do with the buttons.The only dialog that allows any assignment of the tablet buttons is Windows Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings. Here the Buttons tab is supposed to list the actual buttons on the front panel and let you assign them, but the only one shown is the Screen Rotation button. This works fine, you can set the button's function for a single press and a long press. (Too bad it's not possible to use Shift by itself, but that is as-designed by MS.)It should go without sayi...

Hello.  I am upgrading my 180G hard drive to a 500G Lenovo hard drive.  What concerns me is the software that shipped with the original hard drive.  How do I access and install those files?  Is that something I would find on the rescue and recovery disks? I can't find any information about this and it makes me a little nervous not to know exactly how to proceed. Thanks.

Answer:Upgrading Video Card in X230 Tablet?

Pardon my ignorance up front if I am wrong, I have an x220 and have not studied the x230 in any depth, but I suspect this isn't even possible, even on the x230.  On the x220, and I suspect it's much the same for the x230, the video card is a part of the intel chipset (it basically leeches cpu and ram power from the normal system cpu/ram and is not a dedicated removable/upgradable mobile graphics device with it's own cpu/ram like a mobile GeForce or mobile Radeon card). Perhaps there are new inventions on the market that can do the trick, I haven't been keeping up, but when I checked for the x220 their wasn't a viable open slot in the system for putting in such a dedicated mobile card.  The only option was an 'external' hack that allows one to use a dedicated desktop GPU card for when they come home with their system and dock it up to an external monitor.  Looked like a bit of work to set-up but once it was set up and running, it would allow for using a powerful GPU for games and graphic apps etc., while at home/office at least. Would be nice if the newest line of these tablet laptops had room for mobile GPU's, it's about the only thing missing for my interests, however that said, the integrated internal graphics work quite well from my experience, for mild gaming with the settings turned down and for graphic editing (most top 2D and 3D applications work surprisingly well, but far from as good as they would work with dedicated gpu, good ...

The Camera worked fine on my tablet which was earlier on Windows 8.1. But, after updating to Windows 10 Home, it gives me an error - Make sure your camera is connected and not being used by another app. I tried the following :-
1. Updated the app.
2. Turned Windows Firewall off.
3. Tried disabling and enabling the Camera - OV2680.

I need help in getting it to work. I dont have the option to revert to Windows 8.1.

Answer:Camera not working after upgrading to Windows 10 [Tablet]

Can you check for latest camera driver on manufacturer's site? Then install it and see if it works. Uninstall the application/driver, restart and then try to install latest one again. If Windows keep ignoring the driver and installing their own not working again, then you may have to manually force/install the latest driver from Device Manager. Click on the search button and type Device. Then click to open Device Manager. Expand the Imaging Devices and right-click (hold-tap) on the camera. Select Update driver and select last option. Select last option again and you should see a Have disk button. Click on that and browse to the folder where you extracted the camera driver. Install it and try to see if it is working. You may have to restart first. Then hide the driver update so it won't install again.

Yes, but it must be Lenovo branded version of Ericsson F5521gw. It does not support 4G/LTE but 3G/HSPA+ only. Lenovo is refusing to support recent WWAN cards in older models.

Answer:Upgrading my x61 tablet thinkpad video card

Welcome to the forum! Your graphics card is integrated in your system board, and can't be replaced per se. All X61T units have the same Intel integrated graphics which are not upgradeable or replaceable. No other planar would fit in your machine either. So, no, there is no upgrade option for your machine when it comes to graphics. Hope this helps.

I've just bought a second-hand Asus 'Transformer' T100. This comes with Win8.1 and I would like to upgrade to 10. When I run the app it tells me I need more space. The tablet has 32GB in the screen (C:) and 500GB in the detachable keyboard (D:).
Obviously not all the 32GB is available but there's nothing I can remove as it's had a factory reset.
The online help I find tells me that the upgrade process should ask me to add external storage to enable the install but this is just not happening. It just keep telling me I don't have enough space. I have a USB stick I could use or (ideally) the 500GB HD in the keyboard.
Can anyone offer any help? (Bear in mind I am not very technical)

I have a no-name 2-in-1 tablet, x64 architecture, running OEM Windows 10 32-bit, version 1607, and as far as I have been able to ascertain, the tablet is up to 64-bit specs.. I have downloaded the ISO file for Windows 10 64-bit, version 1607, and I want to upgrade the OS. Speccy has given me the Product ID; if I install the 64-bit OS over the existing 32-bit OS, will the new version of Windows accept the existing Product ID, or will I have to purchase a new ID?

Answer:Upgrading 32bit Windows 10 to 64bit Windows10 on a tablet

The same product key will work for 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 10. If you have one of the 2 GB RAM, 32 GB "hard drive" (eMMC) tablets you will probably see a decrease in performance with the 64-bit Windows 10 because the increased resources needed for 64-bit on an already resource limited computer will outweigh the performance benefits. Also, are there 64 bit drivers available for the hardware? A lot of the no-name tablets out there have manufacturer specific hardware drivers and even registry entries - so make sure you back up the drivers on the existing tablet before you do a clean install or you might find yourself having to scour third party internet sites for them - and they likely won't work with 64-bit Windows 10 anyway.

Now, under  Windows 7 the machine boots with bluetooth always off, and i must go to FN-F5 to activate it. All the rest seem to work perfectly.Any help would be appreciated, because i tried anything i could think of to resolve the problem. Regards  - 

Answer:X200 Tablet wireless problems after upgrading to windows 7

Depending on the upgrade procedure, Windows downloads and installs some, but not all of the drivers needed for Thinkpads. The remaining drivers can be obtained from Lenovo's website for X200 Tablets at or more simply using Thinkvantage System Update (TVSU) that can be downloaded at After installing, run TVSU and choose the drivers and programs needed. Note - Lenovo's Win7 upgrade kit includes a separate disk for installing Thinkvantage System Update and other Thinkpad drivers and utilities.

I do have a lenovo X61 tablet notebook which works perfectly. A few months ago I have formatted the entire computer and put Windows 7 Professional on it, the reason was to upgrade the performance speed. I have did this using a different computer, because i dont have a CD or DVD reader. After formatting my touchscreen didn't work any more. I think that the reason is the fact that i didn't put any software on it, so my main question is if this is true and if so were I can find this software.. I have tried the software on de lenovo site, but this one doesn't work. Can anybody help me!!! Thanks for replying. Joris

 Last week I woke up my X60 from sleep mode like usual and was greeted with a nice "Unknown device found" message. I found that my tablet pen does not write, no buttons on the monitor work and the status lights on the monitor do not work (the charging, battery light and sleep light do not turn on). I have tried several driver upgrades from the website, but none seem to do the trick. I am trying to avoid reformatting to get them to work again, but if that's what it takes... Any suggestions?

Welcome to the [email protected]!  Please contact the help desk about this.  The error that you are seeing is typically related to a bad digitizer.  This is not something that you can replace, as it is attached to the LCD.  They should let you send it in and they will repair this for you.

Hi there, I hope someone can answer me a little querstion. I recently bought a x61 tablet and am really happy with it. Although I could be much happier If someone could help me with the following problem. I use Photoshop often, very often and for that reason I use the shift key a lot. In order for me to use it in tablet mode however I always have ot open the lid enough for my hand. I tried to map the tablet pc buttons in the control panel but it doesn't let me. I can map ctrl and alt and all of those but not shift.Is there some secret way to map the shift key? Or do I have to use some loophole and remap one of my normal keys. I hope someone can help me or at least tell me there is no way to do it. It would be greatly appretiated. Thanks in advance Pix (Short for Phoenix )

Answer:x61 tablet - How to map Shift key to tablet buttons?

I don't really have a direct solution for this since I want to customize them as Ctrl, Shift, all kind of this as well. However, there is a workaround that I found it's really good. What you have to have is "Mouse"  wired or wireless doesn't matter. Though I do recommend you to use wireless and Logitech as a brand. The reason why I recommend Logitech is because they have real nice SetPoint program which allows you to customize every buttons on your mouse. Then just map one of them as "shift" It works perfectly.. One hand with pen and another on mouse. I think Razer and Microsoft are another brand I know which have this feature in their software.

Is it possible to use a Tablet PC Pen on the display screen (13.3" Toshiba True Brite(r) WXGA TFT High Brightness) of my Satellite U400-137. I have some pre-loaded SW for Tablet PC (I Ignore if it was supplied with Windows Vista or some additional complimentary SW supplied by Toshiba with my Note book).
In case that it is impossible to use the pen on the screen does exist some external screen / display by Toshib to connect to my notebook, which coul support Tablet PC SW?

Answer:Satellite U400-137; Tablet PC Pen - Tablet PC

I doubt you can use a pen, even if the laptop has touchscreen capability.

The Tablet PC laptops have an extra digitizer layer inside the screen to sense pen input, so you would need to have a Tablet PC model like the Portege M750 or M780.
