Hi, trying to get a Windows 7 Install done on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB w/ Samsung950 Pro. Bios 1.14 (latest as of May 2016)Special issue is, I need to get it done in a Legacy mode (BIOS,MFT style). I was able to install Win7 based on a win7 image that got the 950pro drivers and the USB3 drivers infused through NTLITE, and then I build an image with Rufus 2.9 (both UEFI/GPT and UEFI/MFT) worked, with the X1 BIOS was set up to UEFI only with CSM.BUT I need to to run on the BIOS setting 'Legacy' and in MFT style, b'cause the special Win7 installer I need to use does not support anything else. I know, sounds weird, but..... . So- is there a fundamental limitation against booting / installing a Win7 on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB - Samsung950 Pro in Legacy 7 MFT mode?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Carbon-X1-2016-20FB-Samsung950-Pro-Windows-7/td-p/3338627
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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Hi all, I have have new X1 Carbon and really like it. However I am getting regular BSOD failures once or twice per week. I am running Win7 Enterprise SP1 and have all the lastest Lenovo urgent updates installed and most of the recommended and optional updates installed too. The BSOD have been of the following types:KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (1e) on June 28thMEMORY_MANAGEMENT (1a) on June 30thBAD_POOL_CALLER (c2) on July 6thMEMORY_MANAGEMENT (1a) on July 7thDRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL (c5) on July 21st At first I thought it was faulty RAM so I ran MemTest (http://hcidesign.com/memtest) for over night for two nights in a row and no issues were detected. Has anyone encouneted this issue and know how to fix it? Any recommnedations from Lenovo? If required I can attached detailed log dmps. Thanks,Ian
Look in the event log to see if a driver is throwing an error before the BSODshttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Frequent-BSOD-with-2016-X1-Carbon-20FB/td-p/3377470
Hello, I have this problem for month now :I close my X1 Carbon lid before going to bed, and in the morning, when I resume it from hibernation, the trackapd and trackpoint are totally unresponsive. Everything else work fine, I just have to wait, sometimes 20/30sec, sometimes a whole minute, to have the trackpad working. This is very frustrating to have a computer resuming so fast from hibernation but being unable to use it. I have the latest BIOS (1.15), latest UltraNav driver (220.127.116.11).Tried several drivers uninstallation/reinstallation, several fresh windows install, problem is still present. Actually on a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit (Anniversary update).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-2016-20FB-Ultranav-unresponsive-for-30sec-1Min-after/td-p/3386336
Just got my brand new X1 Carbon (4gen 2016/20FB) with the 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD (THNSN5512GPU7). Was expecting a blazing fast disk, but it felt sluggish something that AS SSD Benchmark confirms (see attachment). According to the specs this drive should offer up to 2400 Mb/s read and 1500 Mb/s write. But I get 1800 MB/s read and abysmal 113 MB/s write. The machine has all the latest updates from Lenovo (incl BIOS) and all the drivers for Windows 10. Anyone else tested their drives? Found a Dell XPS owner with the same drive that complained about the same issue. Turning off windows write cache buffer flushing does help, but that is not a good answer.

Hi all, I have the X1 Carbon 2016 (20FB) and it is running Windows 10 Enterprise. I have all the lastest Windows and Lenovo updates. It all works pretty well except when it comes to starting back from sleep mode. I have the laptop configured to go to sleep when I close the lid. However when I reopen the lid, the power button and keyboard lights come on but the display stays off. Opening and closing the several times doesn't help. The only way to get the display to turn on is to quickly press the power button. This puts the laptop to sleep. If I press the power button again the laptop comes back to life and the display works again. Anyone else have this issue? Any possible solutions?

Hi, I've got an X1 Carbon 20FB (4th gen), and noticed it doesn't have Lenovo System Update on it, which I've found useful in the past. So I went to the Lenovo downloads site and found System Update, but it doesn't list the 20FB as one of the X1 Carbons it supports - it only goes up to 20BS, 20BT: http://support.lenovo.com/se/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x1-... (See the "Note for ThinkPad X1 Carbon users") Should I avoid downloading System Update then?

Hi, does anyone know if there is a list of compatible embedded LTE chips that will work on a X1 Carbon 20FB? The reason why I ask this is bec the current model, EM7455, only operates at some frequencies that some abroad contries do not support and the older models such as the EM7355 support those frequencies. One being GSM. I tired to install a EM7355 into my 20FB laptop but the bios isn't allowing it. Thanks!
EM7455 is versatile enough and supports a lot of 4G/LTE including LTE-A and 3G bands worldwide. It does not support 2G (GPRS/EDGE) access technology.

I recently got a X1 carbon 4th gen (20FB), and I have been super happy with its performance. However, it seems like whenever I have the laptop closed, the keyboard is leaving a mark on the screen. I sent it to repair, and they changed the screen, but that didn't seem to fix it. I noticed that the body and the lid are not perfectly aligned - one of the corners of the lid seems to be jutting out a little bit with respect to the rest of the body. I've attached picture to show this. I'm not sure if this is a part of the general design of the Carbon. Can anyone with a X1 carbon 4th gen confirm that this alignment feature is not present in their machine?

I'm setting up a new X1 Carbon with machine type 20FB. It came with a Samsung MZNTY256HDHP SSD. I noted there was a recent SSD firmware update package for this laptop model, so I downloaded and ran the updater. It reported there were no updates. However, after digging a bit deeper, I discovered that the SSD firmware updater for the X1 Carbon 20A7/20A8/etc. DOES have an update for the SSD in this machine. What is going on here? Does this firmware update somehow only apply when the SSD is installed in a 20A7? Or did this particular model of SSD just get missed when Lenovo was putting together the firmware update package for the 20FB?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Missing-SSD-firmware-update-for-X1-Carbon-20FB/td-p/3485035

Hi, I updated my X1 Carbon 4th gen to 1.17 BIOS, and since then, opening the lid won't wake the computer from hibernation, except when plugged.Bios changelog states Disabled the power button when the computer is in battery mode and the
computer lid is closedbut when I read "power button", I don't think "this is gonna break the behavior of the lid". And of course, no rollback is possible from 1.17, so I'm stuck with a computer wich won't wake from hibernation correctly. I just can advise you all to not upgrade bios, and see what's inside the next version...

I just received my x1 carbon, just a day before relocating to Spain. I didn't have time to check it out thoroughly before I left, but everything seemed fine. When trying it out upon arrival I imediately noticed a rattling sound from the touchpad. Just tapping the touchpad lightly produces noise, not to mention doubble tapping which is aweful. The touchpad seems to be centered and in level with the rest, but doesn't appear to be screwed on properly. A lenovo store here in Madrid only had the cheaper models, but the touchpads on these where all firm like a macbook. I'm a little hesitant about calling the spanish lenovo service as my spanish is severily limited atm. Has enyone else experienced this? Thanks.

Again, not sure why Lenovo is so hard headed? Resuing to listen to what the MAJORITY of people want. * No OLED displays? How long do we have to wait for this? 2020? * SD Mini slot in the back? Very inconvient. No one is going to use it. (regular SD card on the side works better).* CTRL and FN button still in the wrong location. Why again do we have to fix it in bios when Lenovo can easily make it right? No SD card on my 2015 is the most annoying thing ever. Yes I have a stupid USB SD reader but c'mon. What's the point of thin and light if we have to carry a bunch of add-ons. Especially when the SD card slot doesn't even take up any space. Stupid move. Lenovo is losing sales and customers and it's due to them being out of touch with consumers.
The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop for Lenovo? I doubt that. I think it sells very well for Lenovo. You say the majority of people want an SD card reader? Many mobile systems donīt have one anymore, and they still sell. This is a niche requirement, and Lenovo, who is a company with a wide lineup, has other models to fullfill that need. Aka the ThinkPad T460s, which is dimension and weight wise almost exactly the same as your X1 Carbon 2015, but with an SD Card reader, Ethernet, upgradeable RAM etc.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/The-2016-X1-Carbon-was-a-flop-When-will-the-2017-be-released/td-p/3342977
Hello, I have a new notebook, it's a thinkpad X1 carbon Gen 4 (X1 carbon 2016)I don't know how to use fingerprint to turn on my notebook, last time I have a Thinkpad T420, when it's fully power off, I just swipe fingerprint to turn it on. I realy like this funtion, please help me bring it on my new thinkpad.Thank you
Good day and welcome to the community.
To my knowledge, that capability is no longer available, and I don't believe it will be returning.
i'm trying to turn on TPM via a task sequence set whilst building the machine via SCCM 2012
I have included the following cmd as a step in the task sequence:
cscript.exe SetConfig.vbs SecurityChip Active
then use a 2nd step in the task sequence to enable bit locker encryption and use TPM.
Now step 2 works fine as we have used this on our previous HP laptops, but it will not work on the lenovo's Am i missing something in the first step of the task sequence?

Hi there, Today my X1 Carbon 2016 suddenly refused to come out of sleep mode. After a reboot, it refuses to go any further than the boot splash screen. I can enter the BIOS setup screen (F1) and do changes there, but booting anything results in a reboot, including e.g. PXE (never makes it to the actual PXE boot, reboots before that) or even the Lenovo Diagnostics tool (also reboot before making it to the tool). I tried doing a hard reset through the reset button at the bottom of the laptop but it didn't seem to help. Is this a known problem? Should I just get a motherboard swap? I'm a bit disappointed since I've owned the laptop for less than 4 months now... Cheers,https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-2016-stuck-in-a-reboot-loop/td-p/3362440

Hi, I just bought an second hand X1C4 (in Germany). The serial number is written in the BIOS (there is no label on the back). However this SN can neither be validated in the warranty database, nor be found in the product support site. I don't think that I can return it now.In which case this can happen? Is it possible that this SN is somehow wrongly flashed into the BIOS or can it be that this particular laptop is some kind of "illegal" article? Thanks!
Hi, I don't know if this applies to you. I had a motherboard replacement on a IBM A30p and a W510 Thinkpad. Both times after motherboard replacement I had problems with warranty validation. On both of my cases after board replacement they put in the wrong serial number by putting in the letter "O" vs the number "0". Since i still had the label and my purchase receipt i did not resend it in to IBM to fix the BIOS serial number.

I'm going to buy a new license of one of these product, so any suggest please?
I have used Bitdefender, Avast, Kaspersky ( about 3 years ago), I haven't used Norton and Trend Micro.
Out of all these,and your prerequisites,I would go with Kaspersky!
PS:This is from personal experience,and other members may have varying opinions!!
Now! ESET has just released their newest security suite: ESET Smart Security 9 (2016 Edition). These products are on the top of security suites which are produced by giants on security companies. Most of them released 2016 editions of their products. I want to compare on their newest products with new features (such as on ESET: Banking Protection, Bitdefender: Ransomware Protection and new Firewall, etc...) and some enhanced features.
And now, which is your choose for your security? Please let me know your opinion!
its hard choice choose between Eset,Kaspersky and Emsisoft.
in fact i never test Eset 2016, but i tested kaspersky and Emsisoft, Kaspersky 2016 really go lighter than Emsisoft(now i am Emsisoft useres)
by your budget and your interest u can choose Emsisoft or kaspersky.
I have 6 months trial license all of them. Which one do you recommend?
Thank you in advance.
What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.
All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).
Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.
In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.
Have a look here for Avast and Bitdefender info:
KIS 2016 vs NIS 2016 vs BIS 2016 vs Avast IS 2016 vs Trend Micro IS 2016
"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.http://www.sevenforums.com/microsoft-office/391363-outlook-2016-hangs-processing-after-windows-7-update-feb-9-2016-a.html
A recent cumulative update for Exchange 2016 was intended to add support for Windows Server 2016. But, after numerous reported issues, Microsoft has acknowledged a problem exists.
According to the release notes?
If you attempt to run Microsoft Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016, you will experience errors in the IIS host process W3WP.exe. There is no workaround at this time. You should postpone deployment of Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016 until a supported fix is available.
Once again, Microsoft?s testing of its own patches seems to have taken a backseat to accelerated release deadlines.
I understand its Free vs Paid product comparision but anyway
If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.
From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).
From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).
I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

Hi Everyone, I am trying to deploy Windows 10 to a Lenovo X1 Carbon using Windows Deployment Services (WDS) from a Windows Server 2008 Standard Server. In order to perform a PXE boot my Lenovo requires the use of a ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ethernet Adapter. With the adapter I am able to boot with PXE however I am unable to install Windows 10 (or other operating systems). I am seeing a network device error message. Initially I suspected that this was due to the deployment image not containing drivers for the USB Ethernet adapter. I therefore added the adapters drivers to the deployment image, however unfortunately I am still receiving the same error. If anybody has any suggestions on how to overcome this issue they will be greatly appreciated.

HiI own a X1 Carbon Gen 2 thinkpad and wonder if it is possible to replace the current keyboard with a X1 Carbon gen 3 keyboard (with proper mouse buttons), or if it will not fit?I have tried to check the manuals and the connectors seems similar although some things, such as the fingerprint reader, seems different. I have no problem "loosing" the adaptive keyboard and fingerprint reader if I can have all the functionality of the keyboard and trackpoint on the new "keyboard" (i.e. the gen 3 frontpanel).
I am interested in this exact topic as well. Looks like the Gen 3 keyboards lack the adaptive keyboard - that clear stripe on the top that changes. The FRU for these X1 Carbons seem to be the whole keyboard, adaptive part, trackpad and bezel - they go for 150 USD or so. Problem is we don't know if it will work given the model year differences. A nice alternative would be just to replace the trackpoint. They came close with this one, but it is no macbook in terms of tactile feel of the pad. I really am having a hard time with it and it's been about a month. Lenovo please help!https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-Gen-3-Keyboard-on-X1-Carbon-Gen-2/td-p/1939212
Windows 10 RTM.X1 Carbon Gen 3 When going to sleep/suspend, many times the device will not actually enter sleep. The lid LED remains on (not pulsing) and eventually it will bluescreen and create a memory.dmp file before shutting down entirely. Booting up from this state is a clean boot, and any prior data is lost. I've updated everything recent from the Lenovo webiste as of 7/22 and the new Lenovo software updater for Windows 10, and no luck.

Hi guys, I have bought the education edition of the X1 without Windows being preinstalled and now I am not capable of installing Windows 7 Pro 64bit. The only option to install Windows 7 is via USB stick, for which I have created a bootable version with the Windows Tool and with a legitimate Windows iso file. But after starting the installation process, the message pops up that necessary drivers are missing, which I cannot locate on the USB stick and which I have no idea to find in the internet. Neither the Lenovo handbook is useful for this first time installation of Windows. Since I am searching the web now for 3 hours without success I am getting quite frustrated. Does anyone know the solution? Thanks in advance!
Hello and welcome,
What is the exact message? If it's asking for a CD driver that can mean several things. Usually a bad download or bad media or bad transfer of image to media.
It may be that your USB ports are in USB 3.0 mode and the Windows installer doesn't have drivers for that. I'm not personally familiar with the X1... if it has a USB 2.0 port, try that. There may be a BIOS option to put the ports into 2.0 mode or perhaps "auto" mode that might help. Another option is to connect via a USB 2.0 hub.
Are you installing in UEFI or legacy mode? In UEFI mode you'll need to enable CSM support in BIOS - which may be explicit or may be automatic when you select the "not OS optimized" boot mode before loadingt defaults. (The missing driver message doesn't sound like missing CSM support).

Think you have install automatic which both dedetcts (which can take up to hours) and installs .. you will find if you restart computer there will be 100 patches waiting.if your just looking to upgrade to Win 10, you can shortcut by using the windows win10 upgrade tool.I would recommend you to 'reset' the windows 10 install after upgrade as I have never seen a win7 upgrade without some issues.

The computer worked for a while after that and then gave a blue screen again. This time the keyboards flashed as well for a while, and then the computer turned off. I cannot start the laptop since then. I searched the forum and tried the hard reset, but it did not help. When I try powering on, keyboard lights turn on for just a second and then they go off. The green power button light turns on but the computers does not start. Can anyone help? I am traveling for work and looking forward to getting help. Thanks!

I can scroll vertically but not horizontally with my trackpad. The Synaptics UltraNav Driver, version 18.104.22.168, is installed on my X1 Carbon Touch, with Windows 10. I have tried many ways of using the trackpad to scroll horizontally, but none of them work, including editing the TP4table.dat file under Program Files/Synaptics/SynTP. Please help!!

HiI have a 'new' Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 3 (i7-5600U/8GB/touch) upgraded to Windows 10 Ent.It's installed with latest drivers, firmware, etc.The laptop display is fantastic.The quality of any external monitor is rubbish. i.e. the fonts are not crisp, sharp or smooth and very hard on the eyes.I have tried several quality monitors that all look great connected to other PCs/laptops.I have tried connecting via HDMI and OneLink (DVI and Display Port).Any suggestions?ThanksKerry.

Hi, I have a Lenovo X1 Carbon running Windows 10. I would like to connect an external monitor and my only option seems to be using the HDMI port and using a HDMI to VGA cable. I plug this into a Philips 24" ext monitor and nothing I try can get me to
duplicate or extend my display. I just get a message on the ext monitor of "Check Cable Connection". New cable, and new laptop.
How can I even check, if the HDMI port is enabled or is there some other hidden switch / setting / feature I need to turn on first. I have tried the display settings and 'Detect' but nothing.
Any thoughts please.

Hello, I got my X1 Carbon 3rd generation couple of months ago. I was using it fine with windows 8.1. But last month I upgraded it to Windows 10. Usually on windows 8.1 when I close the lid or put the computer on sleep, after a little while it will enter the deep sleep mode ( the startup screen says "Resuming from Deepsleep"). But since upgrading to windows 10, when I put it on sleep after a while the computer just powers off. When I push power it boots from the begining, with all my unsaved work crashed (just like a power outage on a PC). Has anyone come across this issue? or know a solution? EDIT: if I try to turn on within few minutes of sleep, it will come back without an issue.

EDIT 2: Apparently forum doesn't let me edit the post for a second time So I was looking for solutions online, and one of the suggestions was that I need to re-enable Intel Rapid Start Technology partition. So I went through Intels document and located the partition on my SSD and followd the instractions to set ID of the partition as they advice here. Now instead of the computer starting up after sleep it brings the old screen saying "Resuming from deep sleep mode". But unfortuantely its stuck there forever!https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-3rdGen-DeepSleep-fails-on-Windows-10/td-p/2165767

troubles started only after the upgrade to Windows 10 and I frankly tried to ignore the 1-2 BSOD's per day as I'm working 10h+ and still with deadlines in tow.
Lately the BSOD's hit more often and from different reasons: Kernel Security Check Failure, IRQL not less or equal, Memory Management...
I already ran all kinds of hardware tests, everything seems to be fine.
Please note that the SysnativeFileCollection is a .rar inside a .zip as the file was too big.
As title, trying to deploy Win 7 x64 on X1 Carbon, with new Samsung MZSLW1T0HMLH SSD which I believe has sm961 Polaris Controller. It appears there are no drivers at all for this SSD other than Generic Window 10, anybody else come across this? I know these SSD are not fully supported on Windows 7 but at our organisation (and many others too I suspect) this OS is still the one of choice. All other drivers are available for W7 on the support sitehttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Windows-7-Install-X1-Carbon-with-Samsung-MZSLW1T0HMLH-1TB-SSD/td-p/3413151
