X1 carbon 4th gen (20FB) lid and body alignment

Q: X1 carbon 4th gen (20FB) lid and body alignment

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 ?

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.)

OK, I was being careless and formatted an SSD under XP. I then installed Windows 7 Pro 64. My offset is 63. I know I am not aligned. Any method of alignment test says I am not, and I don't want to burn up my SSD.

My question is can I re-align without re-installing Windows 7? I have a bunch of stuff transferred/installed/licensed and I don't want to do a clean install.

Will the following work:

1. Run Norton Ghost and get a disk image.
2. Re-format the SSD under another Win7 computer and format with correct offset.
3. Restore backup image to correctly aligned SSD.

Any thoughts on that?

I really messed this up.

Thanks for any thoughts.

STATIC ELECTRICITY from our body/hand could kill motherboard?
is that true?? B'coz when I clean my motherboard I was touching itself , and then afterward , I turn on the Computer immediately and it won't boot . ( the the ALL FUN are spinning, Keyboard is lighting, also the mouse ) and then I tried to disconnect all peripherals ( HDD, RAM, DVD ROM) except the processor and then I turned on the system eventually the motherboard didn't beep anymore ..

and then I asked my professor about it, then he said the motherboard may be ruined due to STATIC ELECTRICITY from my HAND..

I tried to pull down the motherboard and place it to non-conductor surface, and run the system but it's still not working ..

I also checked all peripherals if I connected those correctly and I did ..

A:Static electricity from our body could kill motherboard?

Hi n0tepad,
Unfortunately that is true. Thats the reason every component has a warning to use an ati static wrist strap when assembling or handling, or to discharge the static by touching the metal portion of the chassis when installing,assembling,or disassembling. You will get away with accidentally shocking a component more times than not...but it can damage or ruin them.

Last night I was sitting at my computer and the monitor flickered and the alignment got messed up. From 1 side of my screen theres a tiny black bar that goes to the other side diagnoly down and part of the desktop is not shown. Also there is a drop shadow of multi-colors on everything that shows on my desktop. Usually I would just tap the side of my monitor and it would usually fix but currently it hasn't. I was wondering what kind of issue this is.

Hi guys, I got a Sapphire X1950XT graphics card today, and while playing Need for Speed Carbon, I get a single beep, then a few seconds later, another beep etc. If I close the game, or alt tab to reduce the load on the gfx card it stops, until the card heats up again. Could this be due to overheating? or any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

It is almost undoubtedly overheating.

we faced a flood of fake DHL shipping notification mails recently. The majority of mails contained a link and a PDF with the same link leading to a malware infected file. A couple of the reported mails I received by our employees contained a PDF where the malware code was already embedded in the PDF itself.

But strangely in a minority of emails (around 2 out of 100 reported ones) I found some hidden code in the mail body. The code was kept in super small font size and the color was set to white. On the first look you could not see that. Here is how it looks:

I copied the code into a TXT file and attached it to this post. The file name is "hidden code.txt".

Does anyone have a clue about what that code might be?? Anyone out there seen this kind of thing already before?


A:Hidden code in mail body of a fake DHL shipping notification

Hello I read now your thread.

Well, usually the danger that comes from mail is represented by the infected attachment.

But sometimes the virus can be contained in the "body" of the email. The virus writer can also spread malicious code "hiding" within the e-mail message. To do so use the HTML code. The HTML code, the programming code of websites, is an element of email, because it is used to embed images or links. Similarly, though, a cyber criminal can use it to embed malicious scripts that run automatically and infect your computer.

Of course delete this mail and scan your PC.

How to indent Footnote text (between the raised number and the body text) automatically?

I have word 2013, and I would like to insert an indentation 1.5 between the raised number and the text in footnotes (see figure 1)

When I go to "Footnote Text" style, and then paragraph to do the indentation, it moves the number and the text to the right (see figure 2). But I do not want this.

Figure 2

If I use the hanging option, it only indents the texts below the first line (see figure 3)

I have gone to "Footnote Reference" style, but the "paragraph" tab is locked. I cannot enter. Can anybody help me how to unlock it? Alternatively, how can I get the results I want (figure 1)

A:X1 Carbon Touch Backlit keyboard not working

Hi, architect7
Be sure to hold the Fn key while pressing the Spacebar to turn on the backlit keyboard. If you have already tried this to no avail, then I would recommend checking some BIOS settings. To enter BIOS, reboot the machine. When it is powering back up and you see the Lenovo splash screen, tap the Enter key repeatedly. A menu should appear. When it does, press F1 to enter BIOS. Once here, navigate to Config ? Keyboard/Mouse and check the settings of Fn and Ctrl Key swap and Fn Key Lock. For purposes of this test, make sure they are both set to Disabled. Once done, press F10 to save and exit. The machine should now boot normally. Log in to Windows and try to activate the backlight again and see if that works.
Best of luck,

Hi,I was just equipped with a brand new X1 Carbon (20A8 type) and tried to use my Bluetooth headset Bose AE2W.The pairing was successful.Unfortunately, the headset doesn?t work properly.The headset does not work in the recording mode (just playback)When I am listening to music, sound is time-shifted (about 1-2s) and every 10-15 it stops.Sometimes it mutes completely so I need to reset the headset.I used Lenovo system update. I also ensured that the headset has the most update firmware.Previously I was using t420s and didn?t have such problems (perhaps sometimes number 3). The headset works perfectly with my private laptop, mobile, tablet etc.I wrote to Bose. They replied that the headset is compatible with:Headphones (HSP 1.1); Hands Free (HFP 1.5); Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.2); Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP 1.4)Can you help me?Thanks 

A:X1 Carbon and Bose AE2W

Actually the problem number 2 worsened... now music stops playing every 1s :-) It's horrible... Cant believe that a device for $2k can be so bad in terms of compatibility with Bluetooth devices... BTW: I am using Windows7

I was afraid that the high temperatures may have damaged the cpu The tool reported that the maximum temperature of the cpu during the benchmark was always safely within the expected threshold and all the tests were passed nbsp Now I still can see that the fan kicks in much more often than usual I have noticed using sensors nbsp under nbsp Ubuntu that every time there is a very short burst peak of cpu usage e g I start Google Chrome and visit nbsp Gmail the sensors report a very high temperature nbsp but just for lt nbsp second e g from degrees to degrees and then soon goes nbsp back to degrees This is the reason why the fan kicks in it remains active for - minutes starting from a high RPM value and then going down as expected I don't think that the temperature actually reaches degrees I expect an immediate but small increase e g degrees of the temperature due to the burst but nothing like degrees nbsp I think that the sensors are nbsp returning junky values I never saw this temperature behaviour instant jump temperature degrees or more due to short bursts peaks before the BIOS update nbsp In my opinion the sensors are not returning stable values as before but they are very jumpy Few questions - Is there any bug report about BIOS update How can you explain the temporarely non working fan after the update I think this may be a serious concern - How can I debug my issue with the temperature sensors Is there any way to reset them Do you think this is a software or hardware problem - Do you think that the high temperature may have damaged the sensors nbsp nbsp Thank you Emilio nbsp

Laptop has got anti overheat thing so if temp rises over 100c it will automatically power off like if the battery was dead and that you unplugged it that sort of power off so temps you don't have to worry but as long laptop alone isn't idle at 80-90c then laptop needs clean out to fix it and if that won't fix it then it could be something else

A:X1 Carbon (2014 Model) endless bootloop

I bought my X1 Carbon Touch 2014 brand new about 2 months ago.Today was a normal day, I set it to sleep before leaving work and came home. A few hours later, I pulled my laptop out and connected AC and pressed the power button. It woke up normally into the login screen so I swiped my finger to login and 1~2 seconds after, the screen suddenly turns funny and then shows black screen (I think it powred off or something at this point). And then it turns on (but not the screen) briefly for about 1 second and then turns off, turns on for 1 second and turns off, and repeat... I tried the reset button and it made it stop the loop. But then whenever I try to power it on it starts that loop again and I have to use the reset button to power it off (holding the power button will not stop the loop). Also, pressing the reset button does not stop the loop when the laptop is plugged into AC.. I have work tomorrow and this is my work laptop.... Any ideas of what's wrong??This is so disappointing. It will be a huge headache if I have to send this in to Depot as our company policy requires the SDD to be wiped before sending it in for repair.   UPDATE:Seems like I'm doomed now. After leaving it for a while I powered it on and it powered up normally and went to boot screen. I chose to normally boot up window but then screen turned blank again... After that, trying to power it up will again enter that power on/off loop. So I reset it again and left it for a while. Then powered it on again and it shows the boot screen normally. I chose Safe Mode this time and it asked for the bit locker key because the system was not turned off normally. While I was looking for the key in my other computer, the screen suddenly turned funny again (lots of red dots and stuff). Keyboard was unresponsive and soon after it went into the power on/off loop again..

A:X1 Carbon G4 - cant install win7 on NVMe

I have installed Win 7 64-bit on a samsung nvme with great success using the same driver from your link.1. Are you able to locate the driver when you press "search" och "load drivers"? If not, ignore all USB 3.0-ports until Windows 7 are fully installed. According to TP X1 spec pdf, you have one USB 2 and one USB 3.2. What USB-port do you use when connecting your flash drive? (there are both USB 2 and 3-ports on your laptop, be sure that you Only use version 2.0 port when installing Windows 7. Try this even if you included USB3-drivers, just to eliminate potential errors)3. I am 95 % that nvme requires UEFI-boot. Try a BIOS-reset and make sure bootsettings are UEFI-compatible, and starting from USB and NVME next.

I currently have the lenovo x1 carbon 3rd generation, which I purchased last summer. Hours ago, I decided to restart my laptop, but it ended up getting stuck in the boot menu/app menu. I have tried pressing the esc button or doing the f9 f10 method in the BIOS menu, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone know how I can fix this? This really is wasting my time, as I have assignments due and finals coming up, and I am getting really frustrated. Thank you!

The answer is no 3rd Gen x1 carbon don't have NVMe support and that this new ssd is PCIe 3.0 x4 while laptop had PCIe 2.0 x4 so answer is no best option is to buy Samsung evo 850 m.2 instead since that one works defently

Dear all,I recently got a new carbon X1 2016 version and I would like to connect it to my display at work (samsung U24E590, 4K) and my TV at home (Panasonic, 4K). As especially my TV doesn't have a display port, I would like to connect over HDMI. In the manual, it says that HDMI connection allows resolutions up to 4096x2160px. However, when I connect my Samsung display, I get only options up to 1920x1080px in display settings (win 10, x64). I downloaded and installed the newest Intel HD Graphics 520 driver from the Lenovo support page. How is it possible to use full 4K resolution over HDMI connection? Anybody an idea? If possible without any expensive adapters etc. Many thanks for your help!

I have the same problem. It began with to bright spots in the lower part of the panel, one in the left and one in the right corner. They came from one day to the other; now, a few days later, two, larger, non-circular blothes have emerged in the centre-left of the screen. The PC is not even a month old.
I did the pixel test mentioned - and it does not appear to be faulty pixels; the blotches remain visible with all colours, except for black, which is basically all the pixels turned off. The shape and size of the blotches also point to something else than pixel error.
Any idea what this might be? It is certainly getting worse by the day.

I believe that drive in not self-encrypting/  Please note that the BIOS password is not what is used to encrypt self-encrypting.  Rather it is the ATA (hard disk) password.  In any case, if you set an ATA password, it is considered uncrackable.  If you have a self-encrypting drive and no ATA password, the drive can simply be moved to a different machine and read directly.

Since mine is starting to wear off due to I got 2 ssd and one of them is my home use ssd and other one is for work/testing ssd so I switch between them alot depending what I'm doing and I noticed couple screws of mine are begining to wear off so it's starting to get harder on unscrew them due to + shape is becoming more rounded each time almost, the laptop itself has no damage on motherboard or any inside area only screws on back cover is wearing out so is it possible to have this fixed or something and does it void the warranty if only screws wear off? I hope not since if so it would be ridiculous reason :/

It's not possible because the two systems use SSDs with different physical sizes. The original X1C uses an mSATA SSD but the X1C2 uses an M.2 SSD.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 , my X1 is having awful power management issues. It randomly powers off when the lid is closed and often times won't wake up from sleep. It does this power on , blinking green light power button , power off mode:  see video of issue here: The only way to get it out of this mode is plug in the power cord and press and hold the power button to force off then turn on. Even though the battery is at 90% + it won't power on without being plugged in.  I have type: 20BSCTO1WW , Bios N14ET32W , Windows 10 ProAll latest ThinkVantage and Lenovo Power Management updates installed  Any thoughts? Does it need to go back to Lenovo ? 

A:X1 Carbon Won't Power on After Sleep

I am having the exact same issue. After pressing power button the light flashes 8 times and there is then a pop from the speakers, this repeats 3 times. model:20BS0032USBIOS:N14ET32W This started for me after I ran Lenovo Updates on 10/8/15. I am able to get the laptop to eventually start by holding the power down for about 6 seconds and then powering the device back on. The start screen is a much different Lenovo splash page. I also had to roll back the wireless drivers as I could not connect to certain networks which previously had no issues.

Hi, I got a 3rd Gen Carbon X1 with a touch screen. Now the screen is broken and I am afraid I have to replace a new one. Is it possible for me to replace a non-touch screen instead of a touch one, since I found the touch function didn't that improtant for me? And if I have to get a touch screen, how much it would be?Thanks for the help!!

It isn't just the LCD that is different. The panel, bezel, lid, cable and hinges all are different.  If you want to repair with non-touch, the best choice might be to look for a used, complete assembly

 Im a new to this board and forst would like to say hi all! Im looking to order the Gen3 Carbon X1 in the next couple of days. Im little worried and confused about the ssd situation on it. The model Im looking at comes with the 256gb installed, which is not even close to the space I need.So Im looking at 512gb options from eBay. Ssd's are very expensive here, eBay or similar is the only viable option for me. What specs exactly work for the gen3? I gathered it supports two different standards? Also, can it really be, that we cant take the WWAN m.2 slot and put another ssd there? Has someone thoroughly tested this? Thank you...

A:Carbon X1 Gen3 SSD questions

SSD on the WWAN m.2 will not work...First, the WWAN M.2 slot in the X1 Gen3 is single-sided only (insufficient height for M.2 cards with chips on both sides), and second, it apparently doesn't have SATA lanes routed to the slot.The M.2 slot in the X1 Carbon Gen 3 uses M.2 SSDs of length 80mm and supports the following interfaces:PCIe 2.0 4x (faster)SATAIIIThe PCIe 512GB SSD in it is a Samsung MZHPV512HDGL-000L  and in synthetic benchmarks it scores 2.5x higher than the SATAIII Samsung 840Pro... price difference is around 100 dollars for this one with the almost identical data... regards...

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?

A:X1 Carbon: Won't boot. Powers on to a solid white...

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.

I have an X1 Carbon, 20BS  CT01WW.  A few days ago I changed my hard drive password to something more secure,  and now I have forgotten the password.  I can still access the laptop using my fingerprint, but I am worried that some day the fingerprint reader won't work.  The X1 has an SSD, but it is not FDE. I do have a full disk image  backup using Macrium. I am wondering if I can use "ThinkPad Drive Erase Utility for the Resetting the Cryptographic Key and the Erasing the Solid State Drive" to reset the hard disk password.  I am aware I will wipe the SSD clean, but i can restore from my Macrium backup. Thanks.

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. Kind Regards, David

Hi, for the last two weeks I'm having a problem when I use earphones on my Lenovo X1.  I've tried different earphones, and every time I put them on and plug them in the computer, audio will sound degraded: For example, when playing a movie trailer, human voices will sound so low that they can't be understood, but music will sound ok. Also, Skype calls are useless when using earphones (human voice again) I tried playing with different dolby settings to no avail. Sound on the loudspeakers is ok though.  Can someone help me fix this? Thanks!

I have my x1 carbon for always a year now. Last month, it had problem starting up for the first time, and I resolved it by pressing the reset button at the bottom. However, this problem has happened more frequently lately. Especially in this week, I had to press the reset everytime I start up the laptop.

My X1 Carbon (4th gen) runs Windows 10 (64-bit). When I click the middle TrackPoint button to scroll (with the red TrackPoint mouse), I am able to scroll, but this always opens the Windows start/search menu. If the cursor is far enough to the right of the screen, I can scroll just fine with the Start menu open, but I would like to disable whatever it is that is making the middle button open the start menu. Thanks
