Thinkpad T410 SSD/HDD not recognized externally

Q: Thinkpad T410 SSD/HDD not recognized externally

Hello there,I wanted to get all my data from my old Thinkpad T410, so I took out the SSD which was installed in it and connected it to my newer Computer. The problem is that my new bought Computer did not recognize the drive at all, so I tested the drive externally on my Thinkpad and this doesn't recognize it either nor will it boot from it when it is connected via USB. I tested the drive on Windows, Linux and MacOS, there are no problems with my external connector, my Thinkpad boots without problems from other USB-Drives and the drives work internally without any problems. On Linux, the drives are detected but not mountable and not formatable... I hope someone has an answer to this problem

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.)

Hi everyone,
Need a new laptop for my computer science degree, considered quite a few. Was just wondering if anyone has an oppinion on the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2516, I would upgrade it as follows:
i5-460m processor
windows 7 home premium 64
320GB 7200rpm hard drive
9 cell battery
Anyone think i should upgrade it differently, I'd like to get it a little cheaper so where if anywhere should i make the cuts in upgrades?
Has anyone got this laptop? is it particularly heavy to carry around?

A:What do you think of the Lenovo ThinkPad T410?

what the difference in 3 and 4GB memory - i would not expect you to use that amount of memory unless you are using some special heavy memory programs

what other choice of CPUs do you have

About two weeks ago, I began getting BSODs on a 9 month old ThinkPad T410 running Win Professional 7x64, OEM. This is the original install of the OS, and there have been no recent hardware changes. Prior to this issue, the machine has performed without any failures.

Today's failure happened quite spontaneously (or so it seemed to me) while the ThinkPad was sitting unattended and unused for about 15 minutes.

Thanks very much for your assistance.

I am having trouble getting the built-in wireless adapter on this laptop to get connected to the internet. I have installed the following driver:
but have had no luck. there are no available wireless connections I can connect to.
I have also tried to use USB wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN725N to connect to internet. It is able to find available connections but when it tries to connect it says unable to connect and give options to troubleshoot. Once troubleshoot is complete it says to investigate router or access point issues. I have reset the router many times. Other devices are working fine with the internet just not this laptop.
I am running windows 7 64Bit.
Please help.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Can you connect the laptop to the router using a cable at all ?

using just the laptop wireless adapter
unlikely to be this as it is reporting NO networks available - but check anyway please
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?


can we see an ipconfig /all - see how below

A:Is upgrading ThinkPad T410 to Windows 10 risky?

Hi and welcome, ssumOfficially, upgrade to the win10 on the T410 isn't supported: win10 reduction matches the source OS.- definitely, Lenovo will not update the win10 drivers for the Intel 6200 itself, it's a deal of the Intel. But as you noticed there are no upgrades too win8/10 manages wireles features from the metro app (Lenovo Settings, and Charms. For metro app some drivers are needed: there are not only win10 incompatible laptop components, but applications also.

Good afternoon all,

I have been in the process of making my laptop, a Lenovo Thinkpad T410, a much better device to use. While I've been having HDD issues, my main issue right now is the battery that I had purchased. With the IBM Power Manager software, the battery is listed as a Sanyo 42T4710. It is a 9 cell battery and I will provide any other information you need.

When I had first purchased the device, after charging for awhile the battery icon on the laptop would begin to flash amber. It will not charge to 100%, and usually stops at 96%. With the battery manager, the charge threshold is set to "Always Full Charge (Start when below 96% and end at 100%). I tried to run the battery gauge reset option, however the laptop permanently stayed at 96% and never discharged lower than that.

Are there any recommendations that you can make for what I should do with the battery?

I installed the most recent windows 10 x64 synaptic driver this morning here on the lenovo site.  The new driver installed fine, but then after I went to reboot my system, the touchscreen was not working. I tried installing the march 1st Touchscreen patch from the same page, and it didnt fix it.   Under the device manager I have located the Touchscreen, it is showing up under Human Interface Devices, as an unrecognized USB input device.  In the properties window, listed under Events, it lists the "Device onfigured (null)".  After trying to install synaptics again later on, I get "Device not migrated", then "Device configured (input.inf)", and finally "Device not startd (HidUsb)". I don't have a wacom stylus, just the standard one that came with the device.Any help resolving this would be much appreciated.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad E545 that's about 18 months old. Everything has been fine until now. I upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 without a problem. However, I now realize the my CD/DVD player is not working properly. I inserted several different DVDs and CD. I can hear the player spinning as if it's trying to read the disc, but when I check File Explorer, the drive has not been recognized (and no CD or DVD starts).  After doing research, I tried most of the suggestions here: but I was unable to try to "fix registry entries" because I couldn't find Upperfilters and LowerFilters listed. Perhaps that suggestion didn't apply since the suggestion said to remove them.  I checked the BIOS to make sure the DVD was enabled.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I recently had to reinstall Windows XP on my IBM Thinkpad T30 and everything works fine except the WIRELESS ADAPTER is being read as a NETWORK CONTROLLER and a driver cannot be found for it. The device manager shows no driver installed no matter what I do and the new hardware wizard can't find anything either. I can use the internet when it is directly connected with the ethernet cable but the wireless capabilities are non-existant.

welcome to tech support guy,

these are the general specs for ALL of the t30 models,

from that:
Infared (IR)
IR transceiver for wireless file and data transfer and printing.
Speeds up to 4Mbps.
Compatible with the Infrared Data Association (IrDA) IR data link specification
located on right side of system

Selected models as either a communication daughter card (CDC) or as a Mini PCI card combo card with Intel wireless
K56Flex v.92
Note: Public network download speeds are limited to 53kbps. Upload speeds are limited to 48Kbps. Actual speeds depend on many factors and are often less than the maximum stated.

10/100 Ethernet installed on the system board
Selected models will have Intel Wireless and modem Mini PCI combo cards
Selected models will have CISCO Mini PCI card
Selected models will have Bluetooth communication daughter card Click to expand...

I have gone to the ibm and lenovo websites and downloaded what seems like a million drivers that did not work and I am at a loss.Click to expand...

as you have found, it is most difficult to obtain a SPECIFIC item to perform a SPECIFIC function, it is even MORE difficult when we can't see what you are looking at, so to help someone here on the forums to help, you might post that info on your personal page or in your sig line or in the post where you are asking for help, - the full make and model

ibm / lenova has a very easy site to find info on, and, in that YOU have the info needed,
start with this:

Finding my product number (machine type / model or part number) and serial number

Support & downloads

User's guides and manuals

download them then 'burn' them to a cd for backup, cause if you needed them once, you will need them again
does that help? post back if you need more assistance and someone here will help

format my computer HDD which contains a dual boot Win 7 and an unwanted XP OS? (I know that to delete that XP is not an easy task so have left it there)
I assume if I just do the upgrade the Win 10 will just overwrite the Win 7 partition and leave the unwanted XP still taking up space?
So, can I put the Win 10 on an external drive and use that, somehow, to load it onto the formatted computer HDD?
Thanks for advice.

A:Can I download Win 10 externally to a HDD so that I can......

Hi zzzz It would be easier if you made a bootable installation media (CD, DVD or USB) with the Windows 10 .iso, boot from it and then use a Custom installation to delete all your current partitions, create just one and then install Windows 10 on it.

A:Backing up Registry externally

You can try a CHKDSK /R /V - this will give you a bit more information on what CHKDSK is doing.

If your PC is on a network and you can "see" it from another PC, then you can download a file called PSEXEC.EXE from and use it to run a file called REG on the other PC.

I would suggest doing a REG /? on your own machine (this will bring up a help screen), to help you determine how you will need to use the program to export the registry from the failing machine.

For the past few days my new drive hasn't worked on my PC at all, I was copying stuff over to it as I suddenly got an I/O error. I restarted my system to find that the drive had disappeared completely, not only in file explorer but in disk management as well.

Recently I took out the drive and tried it as an external drive on another computer, it loaded fine without any issues. I figured there must be a problem with the cables, so I took it back and used the external slot on my PC to try it. But it still doesn't appear anywhere on my computer.

It's a WD 1 TB WD10EZEX.

EDIT: it seems I found the issue, the cables were loose. Nevermind.

A:HDD won't work externally or internally

Try rebooting your computer before plugging in the external drive. Wait a few minutes after boot before doing so. You may be dealing with a sudden drive failure.

I had caught a bug and it would not allow me to even move my mouse and type. I cannot enter into the BIOS screen because it will not even allow me to enter setup. I have the means to externally set it up to another computer but im not quite sure how to go about it.

A:REformatting an internal HDD externally

Welcome to TSG

Hi My DVD HDD recorder has packed up today the motor that ejects and plays the disc and it would cost more to repair it than to buy a new one But I have important TV programs about my work autism on the hard disc that I never got to transfer to DVDs And I know there's nothing wrong with the hard drive I had to quot operate quot to remove a disc and noticed the hard disc looked exactly like a normal internal PC hard drive It's a Western Digital gb one and I seem to remember you can buy external casings for these and use them from PC externally DVD player to Connect HDD as external hard drives Is that true And if so what is the correct terminology please so I can find out what to buy to get it to connect to my PC I'd rather not fit it internally although I have fitted an additional tb one so it can be done Anyone know the best way to attach it externally please thanks

A:Connect HDD from DVD player to PC externally

You have to be careful with making a HDD from a device like that as external. Sometimes the device has a controller that provides its own file system to that HDD. That means you may not be able to use it properly on Windows. I once had a NAS drive fail on me and I tried everything to get it working on Windows until I found out that NAS device had it's own very specific file system that only worked for that device. I popped it into Linux and used a program that could browse that type of file system and restore the files.

If the device you have doesn't have a specific file system like that (which it probably doesn't, I don't know I've never worked on DVD/HDD recorders before). You should be able to just plug it into your computer and use it like a normal hard drive.

You can purchase Hard Drive Enclosures from anywhere like Newegg. Some devices are USB and others use eSATA (my personal favorite).

Before you purchase that enclosure attempt to explore it using Windows. If all else fails you can restore those files using any Linux OS like PuppyLinux.

This is going to sound odd, but I need a way of powering two 120mm exhaust fans in the top of my PC case.

For some reason, these particular fans keep burning out the power connectors that I plug them into. The fans are not obstructed and spin freely. I don't think replacing them will necessarily fix the issue (though I plan to do that as well). I think it's just "drag" from trying to suck air out of a smallish mid-tower case.

I need another way of powering these fans (at least until I can figure out why they they keep burning out my plugs). I considered the USB port, but they only output 5v and not enough amps (and last thing I want is to burn out a USB port.).

Batteries may work, but they'd drain awfully fast.

Any other ideas? Thx.

A:Externally powering 2 fans?

What do you mean they are burning out your plugs?

Do they only have the tiny motherboard connector on them and not a molex? The fans shouldn't draw many watts, what fans are they and do they have a power consumption sticker on them?

I know you want a fix before replacing the fans, but this obviously isn't normal behavior and I'd worry about causing permanent damage to something else. Maybe you should also look into higher CFM intake fan(s) if you suspect they are working too hard drawing (although I really doubt that is the case).

A:externally attach internal drive?

It can be done. I have seen external cases for internal drives before. The problem is you'll be going with either a usb or a parallel interface and will lose speed and performance in the process unless you get one for USB 2.0, SCSI,or firewire if you can support that.

I did find this kit for USB 2.0
I know there are other kits out there that are cheaper as well as parallel port kits.
Here are some others including parallel, SCSI, and firewire.

Welcome to TSF....

I am afraid that you will have to get the CD-ROM drive either fixed or replaced since both clean installs and repair-installs have to be done in the computer with the hard drive in them especially if they are laptops. You can try an external CD-ROM/DVD Drive if your laptop will support booting from an external but the hard drive has to be in the laptop so the install will detect all of the components of the computer.

The bottom two wereIntel(R) Virtualization Technology [DISABLED]Intel(R) VT-d Feature [DISABLED]I tried to change them, but strangely the menu only let me navigate through the first two choices (I can't recall them exactly now but they didn't seem to have anything to do with virtualization), nothing seemed to allow me to access the bottom two choices...  How should I go about fixing this properly?  I want to be very careful with upgrading/flashing BIOS as I really don't want to end up with a brick Thanks

I have one old hard drive that I do not have an enclosure for, nor do I want to put it into a box. My question is, how should I store the hard drive?
I thought about putting the HDD into an opened anti-static bag and taping it up (because it is not a resealable antistatic bag), but I'm aware anti-static bags have to be sealed and I'm not sure if taping it up counts as sealed.

A:Solved: How do I store a hard drive externally?

That is perfectly fine. There is no reason why an anti-static bag needs to be sealed other than enough to prevent dirt from getting in, just like any other bag. If you want, you could put that bag inside another, zip-lock bag. A bigger danger to external HD's than static is the ease with which they can be destroyed by dropping and bumping. Maybe wrapping it in soft material and putting it in a bag would be a good idea.

If this is to be for a very long time, silica gel or another dessicant may be wise, too.

I started to experience a peculiar hard drive behavior Upon launching a program rd party or Microsoft the hard drive would become completely busy causing the whole system to be sluggish and apps to not respond The drive would make a series of clicks and access sounds in a certain pattern that repeats every seconds Same exact pattern over and over Then after a while it would subside Yet it would repeat again and last longer I was able to run diagnostics on my drive and everything checked out I even booted up in a special HP BIOS diagnostic where it could check the hard drive -- no errors found I ran Malware Bytes but it turned up nothing significant I booted up in SAFE mode still same problem I posted about it but couldn't get any advice that helped OK I figured there must be a bad driver somewhere that was caused by a Windows update so I decided to roll back to an earlier checkpoint Well BAD MOVE The rollback worked but it made things worse Now I was getting this hard disk access loop DURING BOOT UP which didn't happen before Well that right there informed me that this is a hard disk issue Now if I do boot up there is a short period of time after the desktop initializes where I can launch Windows Explorer and see folders files I can even copy some files from C drive to D drive So the drive seems OK to a degree MY PROBLEM I take the drive out and mount it on a USB SATA III adapter attached to my Windows computer However it does not see the partitions as something readable It comes up with partitions and sees them as RAW I cannot get permissions So I'm perplexed The only thing I can think of is that maybe my hard drive is encrypted Is there any way I can check This is not a work laptop It is personal And I don't recall setting up any encryption on it MY OTHER PROBLEM OK I can boot up into Safe Mode command prompt and from there I'm able to copy files to a USB drive in between these long drive accesses it still happens However it won't recognize my Gb USB drive I can only use my Gb one While I was able to pull off a few important smaller documents I have some video media that I really want to rescue I can't do it with a tiny USB drive Is there some other mode I can possibly try Is there any way to get a multi terabyte external drive to be recognized in this mode

A:Hard drive problem, and can't access externally - what to do?

Thankfully I have been able to slowly but gradually pull off files that I really needed, now fiddling around getting other files that I'd like to have. The highest USB drive I could get recognized is 8Gb. So at least I was able to pull over around 7Gb of files with each swap. Still mystified why my 16Gb USB drive won't work. Anyway, it was clumsy having to use XCOPY... so I launched Explorer and was able to get the GUI interface going. The hard drive loop kicked in once or twice, but then subsided. The only strange thing is that the click+drag functionality would stop working after each drag... so I'd have to close the window and open a new one.

I'm still perplexed... as to why I could not access the drive externally, that it was seen as raw devices. There must be some kind of drive encryption. If a known encryption is used, is there some method by which the drive can be used externally? Or is it permanently relegated to internal use until decrypted?

A:Hard Drive works externally but not internally

Hello hinaruu!

Just to make sure if I have understood correctly.

You have 4 internal hard drive, one of them (ST500DM002) is your OS drive, which is 500GB SATA III. You have only the OS drive connected to the motherboard and when you try to connect any of the other three HDDs to any of the ports using multiple cables, your BIOS freezes and PC turns off? But you can without a problem connect the drives externally?

Are you receiving any messages, or beeping sounds from the motherboard? I would first advise you to back up anything important from the OS drive to another one.

Then disconnect your OS drive and plug it to another port and start the PC. Does it work? Then power off again, and plug one of the other three drives on the first SATA port where the OS drive previously was. Try powering up again. This should give you sense if the ports have a problem or the drives.

Then reset your BIOS. Carefully pull the CMOS battery out for about 15-20 seconds then put it back on place. Be very very careful! Then press the power button of the PC for 15 seconds to discharge any remaining power stored in the capacitors. By discharging the power, the CMOS memory will reset, therefor should reset the BIOS. Then connect the drives again, firmly, to data and power. Test again.

I see your motherboard has 4 SATA ports, which are SATA II. Some of the drives are SATA III, but the ports are backwards compatible, so this shouldn't be the issue. But I believe that your motherboard ports may be damaged.

Do post back with results to troubleshoot further!

I am adding a second hard drive to a new pc because I need to retain the files that reside there. I plan to use it externally. I dont beleive in this configuration, the 2nd hdd would be set-up as the slave- would the jumper settings be set to "CABLE SELECT ENABLED"?

Hello TS!

My friend asked me to help them with their laptop. I can't seem to figure it out.

The laptop is an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC.

The laptop is running Vista SP2

It grabs a valid IP address from DHCP. It can ping Google and Yahoo and any other web address. But the problem is, when you open a web browser (firefox, ie) it displays "Unable to connect"

I have repaired the connection. I have tried both wired and wireless connections. I have run the netsh winsock reset command at the command prompt. I am not sure what else to try.

Thanks for the help

"The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid."

This error shows up when ever I try to open my Lenovo all in one PC I got in 2012. It has the simple error message and then a black background. When I try to delete the error by clicking the x, it just pops back up again. If you keep pressing x for maybe 20-30 times, the message goes away but the black backdrop stays and I can't use my PC. So less of a blue screen of death and more like a black screen of death. I just need to extract some old files from it, so I don't mind if it isn't a perfect fix. Please help.
P.S. The "file" in the error is my wacom pen display tablet driver.

Hi, My T410 would not power on, nothing when pressing the button. It will power up if I remove the cmos battery, plug the power in, unplug, re-connect the cmos battery and then plug the power in, and it works fine then...until it's powered off of course and the cycle begins again. I thought it may be a faulty cmos battery so I have changed that to no avail. Next step is to change the keyboard I guess? the power button seems to do will not power the laptop off etc. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and found a solution before I spend 20 or so on a keyboard off Ebay. Thanks, Terry

I first thought of defect in RAM and have requested replacement from vendor, but same issue with new RAM modules. Any idea why this is? Tx

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I'm trying to figure out if the slow performance of my T410 (on certain apps - mainly Firefox and Quicken) could possibly be caused by an overheating problem that I know I have (because I sometimes get a "fan error" on startup, and because it is hotter to the touch that it seems it should be).  My speculation is that maybe the CPU has a temperature monitor, and when the temp gets too high it throttles down the CPU.  Is there any truth to that idea? ~ Thanks in advance~ Ken

There are ultra bay adapters for the T410, as well as many other T-series laptops so you can install a 2nd hard drive in place of the CD or DVD drive.  I have the adapter and drive but for some reason the computer doesn't recognize the drive in the bay.  You can hear the drive attempt to power on and spin but after it boots there isn't any sign of the drive.  Are there some steps I'm missing, something I need to change?   I just updated to a 240GB SSD, so the 2nd drive is the OEM 250GB HDD it does still have the OS installed, which would be wiped if I could just get the drive to load so I could format it and use it as a storage drive.  I'm running Windows 10 64bit.

I think my motherboard has died - I was in the middle of working on a document when the screen just went blank on my laptop, although the light is still on, indicating it's still on, and I have to do a hard turnoff.

I removed my hard drive containing Windows 7 from my computer, where it boots properly. I placed the drive in an enclosure and connected it via USB. It refused to boot, instead flashing a blue screen for less than a second and then asking if I wanted to attempt system repair.

Upon returning the hard drive to the inside of the computer it works correctly as before.

I regularly boot various Linux operating systems with hard drives connected internally or externally on this computer, so I believe that my BIOS settings are correct and that there is not a problem with the hardware.

Does anyone know why Windows refuses to boot unless it is connected internally?

Thank you for any help or advice.
