Q: X1 Carbon (20FB) won't boot unless display is open...

Carbon X1 connected to OneLink+ with current firmware 2.30 OneLink+ dock is connected to 2 DisplayPort monitors and some USB devices 1. If the X1 display is closed the system hangs on starting Windows2. If I open the lid and re-power the system and start up windows. Once I can get the the Login screen, I can then close the lid and all is good. Both external dispay work fine 3. X1 boots fine when not attached to OneLnk+ Workaround - #2 is not a great option in the long term Any help would be appreciated Steve

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 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? Thanks,Ian

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? I've not noticed anything that's not functioning, but I figured it makes sense to keep things up to date from a security and features point of view. Why is it not included by default? Thanks for any advice!

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? Thank you ?

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!

A:X1 Carbon 20FB Embedded LTE Compatibility

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.

Hello all, We've got the same problem here with our x1 Carbon 4th gen (20FB). Lucky, we just purchased 2 but not 2 dozen. Both of them have the same problem which same as Swhitcher. We've called the Lenovo support hotline and ask for the onsite support. The on-site engineer replaced the mother board for us, but after 1 hour, problem occur again. We're going to deploy those computers to the end user very soon.So please, give us the solution as soon as you can, Lenovo!Many Thanks! Willi

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 (19.0.17.98).Tried several drivers uninstallation/reinstallation, several fresh windows install, problem is still present. Actually on a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit (Anniversary update).

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?

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?

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...

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.

i have an intel graphics card that came with the computer, the latest update of the intel 82845G, does this mean i wont be able to run the game?
do you need an nvidia or an ati graphics card?

A:Display drivers for need for speed carbon

It means you are screwed unless you buy a graphics card. Even then a 2 ghz with 512 of ram is going to have hell dealing with the game.

It is time to think about retiring your machine to internet/email/office only if you want to game.

Mine needs work, I am just waiting for a bigger upgrade than what is now possible. I am near the top.

Hello everybody, I'm sorry but I'm really disappointed I bought a X1 Carbon 3rd gen on November 2015. Last Sunday I turned it on but the display was died: completely black. The PC works great but only with an external monitor.I immediately called my supplier where I bought it and he opened a request for a spare display.Today is friday and there isn't any new about my display. From Lenovo there's no answer... It's unacceptable for a computer that costs more than 1500 euro.I always used Lenovo (before I was a IBM Thinkpad user), I have tablet, smartphone.. but seing this I'm afraid it's time to make a change.

I have an X1 Carbon 20A7 that is 5 months out of warrenty and that will not start, most of the time. When I push the power button the button blinks 4 times, the fan kicks on for a split second, and the keyboard backlight and multifunction keys flash on once. After pushing the button multiple times (there isn't a magic number of times but generally it's 10-15 times) it will kick on. Once it is on there doesn't not appear to be any issues. It will even sleep and come back on without a fush. If you try to restart it however it will simply shutdown and not reboot. My gut says it is the system board but I'm hoping I'm wrong.

A:X1 Carbon will not boot, or enter BIOS

I had the same problem.If you have windows installed, do not shut it down normally, but make a hard reset (press for a few seconds the turn-on button). It looks like Windows Computer (WC) does not really shut down so you miss the chance of entering the BIOS.To me it works by then pressing the F1 button (without any extra Fn or Ctrl, etc..) a few times after pressing the turn-on button again (no need to press them at the same time).Btw., if you want to install GNU/Linux and boot from USB, you may need to change this in the BIOS: _security _disable secure boot, and_startup _UEFY legacy -> both My system: Win10 (now Debian), X1 4th generation, PCIe SSD

Hello, I'm the happy owner of a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th gen, received 3 weeks ago and it doesn't boot anymore. Yesterday, I left it up and running, not plugged in and it shut down after being discharged. Since then, I haven't been able to boot up the device. When I plug the power plug, I could see the red light showing it's charging and now it became green which means it's fully charged but nothing happens when I press the button start. As well, when I plug the AC adapter, the power button blinks 3 times green. I've tried to perform a hard reset using a clip and the middle hole in the back but no success. Does anybody had such experience and has an idea on how sort out this thing? help would be really appreciate. Regards, poy

One of my users just brought his X1 carbon in for me to look at.  When powered on, it comes up to a solid white screen.  The wireless radio light is on, and I see the HDD light flicker a couple of times, very briefly.  I have tried holding the power button in to power it off and bring it back up, pressing the reset button, and also holding the reset button for 10-15 seconds.  None of these made a difference, the lcd still displays a blank white screen when I turn the laptop back on.   Before I put in a support ticket and send it off to service, is there anything else I should try?

Hi, swhitcher
 
For clarification: Does the computer go to a white screen immediately, or only when it is booting Windows, i.e., can you see the BIOS or any screens at all? My first recommendation with issues like this is to boot into Safe Mode, but if you can see nothing but a white screen, troubleshooting steps will be vastly different.
 
Best,
Adam

 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).

A:X1 Carbon Gen 3 Keyboard on X1 Carbon Gen 2

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!

Hello pjam, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check to see if it's from pressing a button on the mouse that triggers this. If you mouse has additional buttons than the usual left and right click buttons, then they can often be set to perform functions such as this.

This doesn't only happen when it's minimized, by the way. It happens any time you hover over Firefox's taskbar button.

Anyway, here's how to change Firefox's Taskbar Preview behavior:
Go to Tools > Options
Switch to the tab called "Tabs"
Disable "Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar"
Click OK
If you want to completely disable Taskbar Previews entirely so that absolutely nothing pops up when you hover over an opened item on the Taskbar, then I can show you how to do that.

This is Aero Snap, and here's how to disable it:
Open the Ease of Access Center control panel
Click any of the following:Make the mouse easier to use
Make the keyboard easier to use
Make it easier to focus on tasks

In any of these, look for "Make it easier to manage windows". The name of the actual option is "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen"
Enable that option
Click OK (or click Apply first if you want to test this before exiting this control panel)

or at least I THINK it is.
There's no customization tab to change the ico look of the folders I want to change.
I tried using Local Group Policy Editor, (Disable the Display Control Panel) didn't do anything
I tried to also fix the issue by using HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
But still, nothing. Can you guys help me out here? would appreciate it.

Hello all. I was hoping someone could help me out with this problem.

I have two displays. My first is 1680x1050, my second is 1920x1080. When I run an application, it always opens on my first. For some things this is a problem -- namely applications like Team Fortress 2 or XBMC, things which run in fullscreen and determine their resolution limits at launch. I want to play Team Fortress 2 in fullscreen on my secondary display, but it just doesn't want to let me.

The ideal solution would be some way to tell Windows that I want certain apps to open on Display #2, not #1. Is there some launch option that might do this, the way you can create shortcuts with "-windowed" suffixed?

A:Forcing applications to open on a second display?

Well you can tell the particular applications to open in Windowed mode and drag them to the particular display you wish to use. The Windows shortcut to move a window to the next display is Win+Shift+Right/Left

You can also change your primary display to the one which you'd like to play full screen applications on.

The more user friendly solution is to purchase or download an application which can manage dual displays a bit better than Window's native functions. Here's a list...

Realtime Soft UltraMon
DisplayFusion
Actual Multiple Monitors
MurGeeMon

As far as TF2 is concerned, you can use the launch commands "-noborder" and "-windowed". The first command will cause a windowed game not to show borders then second command simply forces the game to run in windowed mode. "-noborder" should force windowed mode.

To use these commands you can either append the commands to the end of the shortcut target line or you can add it to the launch options within the steam games window itself. Right Click Game > Properties > Launch Options

A:Cannot open Display Settings in Windows 10

No there is no way to change the mandated items that Microsoft deems not user accessible anymore, even with third party utilities. Also you have to keep the Display properties active, because if they are disabled and something happens, you can never get in to fix the problem.

It is a Samsung SyncMaster 740N. the Menu button brings up a popup on screen that says TEST GOOD and the disc drive wont open on the CPU. There was a storm here the night before I found the prob but I had turned the PC off at the wall and there is a surge protector on the whole house. I tried to google solutions but people with similar issues said they had already checked Ram and such before asking and I don't know how to even do that. I am putting myself through uni and can't afford to get in anyone at the moment so was hoping like hell that someone could help me to do it myself.

Hello everyone,

I love the way that Internet Explorer 8 displays all of its open tabs/windows in a list view when you hover over the IE8 Taskbar Icon, and there are too many tabs/windows open to display them as thumbnails. I would like it to always display the open tabs/windows in a list view. Furthermore, I want my other programs, such as Outlook, where I have multiple items open, to display them in a list, rather than thumbnails, when I hover over the Outlook icon in the taskbar.

Is there any way to get this to happen, even if I have to use a software add-on?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I have tried runas but I cant use desk.cpl because runas only allows applications.

Also - If you add a noprofile arguement will that bypass restrictions on that account? Eg;-

User 1 is not allowed to change his wallpaper. If user2 (who is allowed to change his wallpaper) ran the display control panel as user1 using a /noprofile arguement would the changes be saved as user1 when he logged on again?

A:Display blacks out then reappears when I close then open my laptop lid

id say its hardware fault rather than software. if you have no other problems such as image/video distortion when viewed/played, and no problems when your gaming (other than your screen), its not your GPU.

when you say it blacks out, does it look like it has lost all power, or does it just look like it isnt not displaying anything( in other words, is it back-lit). ive had that problem twice before and found the screens power connector was half way out of its socket on the motherboard..

another sign that the connector has come loose is if you get flickering when you rock the screen back and forward.

how often does it happen?
