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.)

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: (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!

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.

Hi, We are having an issue with our X1 Carbon's(20FB). The audio output via an HDMI cable works, we see the Epson speakers in the playback devices. After the user is logged on for a while, the speakers will no longer showup in the playback devices and the auidio will just come through the laptops speakers. After we restart the computer, the audio will again work and play to the speakers. Windows 7 X64 Any help or thoughts on this is greatly appreciated.  Thanks,John

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

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'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?

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 ( 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?

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

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, 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...

 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!

I have just migrated my Win8 HDD to an SSD and ran Diskpart to check the alignment. The attached shows the result. Note Partition 1's (The UEFI partition) offset is 1024KB which is fine, I think. Partition 2's (Win 8 System) offset is 330MB and Partition 3's (Data) is 60GB. Neither of the last 2 is divisible by 4 evenly. Does that mean they are not properly aligned for an SSD? Or should I just not worry about it?

Thank you very much.

I'm not completely sure, but I think that since your first partition's offset is good the 2nd and 3rd are ok also, since they follow the first one.

Hello, recently i bought 256Gb sandisk ssd, i wanted to clone my previous hard drive partition with Windows 7 in it, because i dont want to do any new installations of windows. there is just too much custom settings in system.

Anyway, by reading tutorials over the net and using EaseUS partition master 9.3.0 paid version, i cloned my C partition to my new ssd witch i connected to USB>SATA cable for temporarly use.

Anyway, before copying, i formated SSD with windows 7 and it gave 1024offset. seems all right.
However, after started cloning in safe mode (it took 5 hours), EaseUS reformatted my SSD again and gave wrong offset, starting sector was 63.

After that i googled some method, i corrected alignment with "Minitool partition wizard home edition" free application.

Now here is the results:

is it all looking good now?

A:SSD alignment - do i am done it right?

In elevated command prompt type..... Diskpart

hit enter

then type...... list disk

hit enter

then disk x

hit enter

replace x with the disk you want to check

then type........list partition

hit enter

it will show you the offset and it has to be divisible by 4

Hi everyone,

I have Intel X-25M 80 GB SSD. I want to install Windows 7 Pro x64, MS Office and other application on it.

Should I create partition primary align=1024 or Create partition primary size=100 align=1024?

Thank you.

A:SSD Alignment

I assume you are using diskpart????

I think the first one will create a single partition covering the entire drive.

I think the second one will create a small 100 mb partition that you could then make the system partition.

But you don't need that small system partition, so I would do the first command.

I don't think you even need the align part of the command.

select partition 1

Three months ago after I first built the computer everything was lightening fast but now things are slowing down. I had done research on SSD optimization before I installed Windows 7 but I did not catch the alignment part so I am not sure if this is causing a problem.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Personally, I have no idea whether your settings are correct as I've never tried to install and set up a SSD, but this tutorial may be of help to you: SSD Alignment

Hello there, I have an Intel 520 series 120GB SSD. I ran AS SSD which told came up with '31 K - Bad'.
The speeds I got were 480MBps read and 120MBps write. Very low, but I believe the motherboard is faulty (the 3rd party SATA3 and USB3 are also not working).

I used an upgrade copy of Windows, so I installed Windows XP to the SSD first and then used the Win7 upgrade disc to do a clean install.
I read Win7 is suppose to set the correct alignment, but I deleted the partition before install, so I'm not sure why it was set 31K.

Should I change the alignment? If so, to what?

A:Should I change the alignment on my SSD?

Hello Clem,

If you wish to get the best performance from your SSD you would ideally change its alignment to something that is divideable by 4. (Like 1024 or 2048 KB)

There's a nifty tutorial here on this forums that'll guide you through the process:-

SSD Alignment

If you wish to realign the drive and it already has an active OS on it, and do not wish to have to perform another clean install after realigning, you can use this partition alignment tool from Acronis for SSDs:-

Hope that helps!

I just read a pdf provided by the developers of System Mechanic and they say their 'Program Accelerator' module is the only prog available that can correct misalignment of a programs files. So, it defragments the files and puts each progs files close together which they say improves loading time of the prog.

I use Ultradefrag and it has a full optimization option. Doesn't that do the same thing or does it just put similar file types closer together? Which is what System Mechanic developers is saying other defragmenters do and only their prog can correct.

I am merging to a page containing 16 labels, 4 x 4, but I need to fix the last line of the information to the same point on the right hand side of every label. I can right align this but as I have chosen to suppress empty line printing it causes this last line to wander vertically with the movement of the address block. Is there any way that I can vertically fix this line? This line also contains merge information.

Hope I am on the right forum. I have a Dell 926 printer. I replaced the color cartridge the printer went into its "printing alignment" mode.

I took the color cartridge back to the store and received a new color cartridge only to have the same problem. My black ink cartridge will be empty as will the color cartridge if this problem is not resolved soon. The trouble shooting doesn't help at all.

Have you tried checking out what your default top margin is? You want to the double click on the ruler on the left side of the screen which will bring you into "Page Setup." From here check what it says in the "top" section. If it is too large change it to what you want and click on the "Default" button to set that as the default for new documents.

I have a windows 98-based computer and I use WordPad as my word processor. But it always acts weird when it comes to aligning the text. It looks very nicely formatted on the screen, but when it's printed out or copie and pasted to my email, the alignment is a huge mess! Or, I use JAWS 3.7 and a Braille Lite 40 since I am deafblind. Anyway, I read it out in Braille and it feels nicely lined up to me, but a sighted person tells me that it's actually in corkscrews on the screen. What would make my computer do that?

I am not sure how to help you specifically with these problems. I don't understand how the alignment could go wrong, but perhaps NotePad is better for "draft" emails.

However, there is a free program called OpenOffice, which is a free office applications suite that is a lot like Microsoft Office; it just isn't as pretty. With that, you would be able to align your text better, and you will be able to insert tables. Go to

A:Mis-Alignment on x25m 160GB SSD

I'm not familar with Casper, but as you describe it, it sounds more like an imaging program. A clone is a 1-1 copy from one disk to another. But, I would suggest a clean install. That will align it properly. I don't think a secure erase is necessary. Just in diskpart use the 'clean' command an not the 'clean all' command. There is a good tutorial about it, Ready hard drive/SSD for a clean install. But, again just use the clean command. The only tool I am aware of that will align an SSD with the OS installed is the $29.95 Paragon Alignment tool. It will do what you need. You could also clone the ssd to another hard drive and use the $19.95 Paragon migrate to clone it back. It will clone the OS and align the SSD correctly. I have it and have used it several times and it does it right every time.

If you don't want to spend the money, a clean install is the best option.

A:Outlook text alignment

You can set Outlook to use Word as its e-mail editor. This would allow you to use the formatting options that are available in Word in you e-mail. A word of caution though... using Word for your e-mail editor can sometimes cause Outlook to mis-behave. If you only need this occassionally, you could change the settings temporarily while you complete your task.
To change the settings in Outlook... click on - Tools - Options - Mail Format. There you should see an option to use Word to edit e-mail.
I just had another thought on this subject (that's scary). If you are composing your e-mail in 'plain text', you may want to try 'rich text'. Rich text holds it formatting better than plain text. That option is also available in the Outlook 'mail format' settings. Give them a try and see if that solves your printing problem.

I'm trying to resize and realign the text boxes etc. to fit into the new page but all of the boxes have automatically aligned to the right side of the page (alignment within text boxes is fine). The only way I can get something to align closer than 2 inches away from the left margin is to expand the box so it is page width but in cases where there is more than one text box at the same horizontal alignment - ex. name and phone number boxes, I can't make them smaller and align one to the left. I can put them side by side but they have to be extended over whatever's on the right. Any suggestions besides starting over? it's a very big form.

Hi Leonard !

Do you have SP2 installed ? Have you installed all the latest critical updates from Windows Update ?

In IE click the question mark menu => about internet explorer and tell us which version you're using.

Have you installed any third party plugins ? If you have IE7 then go to tools => manage add-ons and disable them all.

Do you have any internet related toolbars or softwares installed, like the google or yahoo toolbar, some download manager, ... ?

Does the problem also happen with firefox ? If not then stick with firefox, many consider it a better browser than IE.

A:Win 8.1 Start Screen Icons Alignment

You can create groups of icons. Just drag the icon to the right of a group, and you will notice a bar appear indicating that when you drop the icon, it forms a new group.

Also, keep in mind that icons "flow". So if you remove an icon from early in the flow, then the icons drop back and fill in the empty space. So it works best to start at the first icon in a group and work your way down (icons work in 2 column pairs, so left, right, down and left, right, down and left, right.. etc..). Move icons from later in the list to earlier in the list, not the other way around. Otherwise things move.

Hmm, ISTR something similar in Word 2007 when I was writing my proofs for Discrete and Foundations.

The only thing I could figure would be to either 1) write the whole thing as an equation, instead of entering the "z >" as text and then building the equation, or 2) doing the exact opposite of 1). I cannot recall *which* one would make it work, but one of those 2 *should* fix it.

I never actually tried the columnar approach except once for a formula sheet that our DE professor allowed us to have during a particularly brutal exam, but if I can find it on my jump drive I'll take a look and see which method I used in that instance, as that is the only time I ever used a multi-column layout.

I know some of you think this is trivial, but we are talking about a gap bigger [on my current configuration] than a system font hyphen* (3 pixels) and bigger than a system font space (4 pixels), so it looks as though an unwanted space before a word has been made by the user, and I find it quite a distraction.

*this is a third futile topic, but I would be absolutely thrilled if I was able somehow to import the Lucida Sans Unicode hyphen (which is 6 pixels long) for all my folders/files. I really can't stand to use the 125%/150%/custom DPI options (that change not font or font properties but only font size)--I don't want to make everything cumbersome, I basically just want to make clicking on one or the other side of a hyphen easier.

This may be a dumb question but it is driving me crazy. I got a new computer and so have gone from Word 97 to Word 2003. In Word 97, when I open the open file menu in my document, the folders always aligned at the top and any files saved there below them. I could then align the files by date modified. In Word 2003, if I align by date modified, with the newest on top, the folders are now at the bottom, so I have to scroll down to go into subfolders. Is there some way to have Word 2003 act like Word 97 did in this regard?

Hi Wendyday

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Unless I am misreading your question, clicking on the Date Modified header column should toggle those folders back and forth between Ascending and Descending order.

Click the column again and it should reverse the order.

Do you also use the Date Modified column in My Documents?
Try changing it there also.

Let us know if that works or not.

Let me know if that was a dumb answer!

Here I have a screenshot which should make clear what is expected to happen and what actually happens. For some reason Excel thinks that the datum in J114 corresponds to a label in A113 instead of A114 and so on. Anyone know how to get Excel back in line?

Here are a couple of screenshots which I'm pretty sure demonstrate a bug in Excel. It functions fine when I put numbers in an additional column of labels and reverts to idiocy when I remove them:

Hello, I've always wondered about this. Anyway to change it to be left aligned like in windows 7? I have a windows 7 style theme that matches 7 almost perfectly, the only issue is the titlebar text. I've yet to find any help on this topic through some googling so i figured i'd try here. Here's a picture incase my question wasn't clear enough

p.s Sorry if this is in the wrong section, wasn't quite sure what this would fall under.

There is probably a simple solution to my problem, but for the life of me, I cannot figure it out! I am working in Dreamweaver CS4 and am running into an issue where if my text in the body of the webpage is longer than the menu on the left hand side, the menu icons and logo drag along with the text. I do not want this to happen! I want the menu to stay stationed at the top with it left adjusted. I am using a template for the inner pages of the website, and this nonalignment is only occurring on the pages that have extended text in the body. I have attached a picture so you can see what I am talking about.

Thanks for your help!

I created a flyer in Word using three columns so that text used as captions will be aligned with pictures. I made sure that the pictures are smaller in width than the columns themselves, which was a problem at first since they were wider.

However, even though the pictures and text are all centered within the columns, the pictures seem slightly more aligned to the right than the text. It's barely noticeable, and I could put a few manual spaces before the text to center them out, but I don't understand why they don't have the same alignment.

The pictures have a width of 1.5 inches each, and each of the three columns is set at 1.83" width and 0.5" spacing. Here's a screenshot from Word:

I know that it's almost not noticeable, but I like everything to look professional.

Hello My HDD recently became unrecognizable due to an unfortunate tumble with my old notebook I extracted the hdd quot pata and plugged it onto an old external enclosure I had hoping to take out some of the files still on the drive However I USB alignment? Power caused pin by Surge bad was careless and didn t notice that the pins weren t aligned properly by that I mean I shifted or USB Power Surge caused by bad pin alignment? pins to the right or left in any case it meant the male pins on the HDD weren t aligned properly with the proper corresponding female sockets of the external enclosure I plugged the external enclosure onto a free USB port and I received the USB Power Surge warning I immediately removed the HDD re-examined and reseated it I plugged it back in and it was seen for a few moments then it was just unresponsive The entire time it felt like the HDD was struggling to rotate or as if the needle was damaged from the fall I understand it was a shot in the dark to try to retrieve data from a damaged HDD after it had sustained a pretty nasty tumble but I m trying to figure out what the Power Surge warning meant and if that could have fried my HDD thereby damaging even further Has anyone ever gotten the Power Surge warning before Would a mis-aligned HDD on an external enclosure cause that error Do you think any damage was sustained on the HDD or the Computer itself by that message Does windows lets say xp through have usb port protection in terms of power surges from mis-configured usb devices Thnx for your time I understand that there s really nothing I can do to remedy the situation I figured I d just learn what I can from the situation and move on nbsp

I used to clean and align the cartridges without any problems by going to: "Printer","Maintenace" then clicking on "Clean". I've no problems cleaning the cartriges (an image appears on the screen showing the command running while the IJP-V100 was printing ) When I click on "Alignment" the image pops up and indicates that the alignment is being executed, but the printer does absolutely NOTHING. Any sugestions?

A:Cartridges alignment SONY IJP-V100

Your best bet maybe emailing sony, their tech support site has gone downhill, hard to find an answer for anything there lately.

You could try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer and printer software
Relevancy 41.28%

So, my HP OfficeJet 5740 comes with a 'feature' that whenever you swap an ink cartridge, the printer tells you that an alignment needs to be done. Both on the printer AND on the computer. This is kind of annoying, but wouldn't be so bad if this could be disabled. But no.

I don't want to have to do an alignment each time I swap a cartridge - I don't care if it only uses a small amount of ink. I was figuring that I could just stop the message from popping up on my computer by finding that service in the TM, and going to the location, and renaming the file. But that pop-up does not appear in the TM.

Was wondering if someone has any ideas as to where I can find if it, if not in the TM.

Thanks in advance.

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium installed.
It is a Dell XPS. It came with an extra partition for "Dell Utility" of size 40 Mb. This is the first partition.

There is a partition misalignment.
To check ,I booted an Ubuntu USB(live,without installing).
When I opened Disk Utility in Ubuntu, I find that there is a partition misalignment of 512 bytes with the Dell Utility partition.
How do I fix it?
The warning message says that there could be poor performance due to this.
Is it true?
Is it going to affect the performance of other drives or my general usage?

Thank You.
