Hi, the power options sets that the display should turn off in X minutes. But it doesn't do it at all. Instead, the computer is locked and the display dimms. I'm pretty sure that I have installed the latest monitor and graphic card driver. For testing it, I have also unplugged all USB devices. What can still be the reason? Thanks!https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Thinkpad-X1-Carbon-2016-20FB-won-t-turn-off-display/td-p/3479770
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Hi all, I have have new X1 Carbon and really like it. However I am getting regular BSOD failures once or twice per week. I am running Win7 Enterprise SP1 and have all the lastest Lenovo urgent updates installed and most of the recommended and optional updates installed too. The BSOD have been of the following types:KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (1e) on June 28thMEMORY_MANAGEMENT (1a) on June 30thBAD_POOL_CALLER (c2) on July 6thMEMORY_MANAGEMENT (1a) on July 7thDRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL (c5) on July 21st At first I thought it was faulty RAM so I ran MemTest (http://hcidesign.com/memtest) for over night for two nights in a row and no issues were detected. Has anyone encouneted this issue and know how to fix it? Any recommnedations from Lenovo? If required I can attached detailed log dmps. Thanks,Ian
Look in the event log to see if a driver is throwing an error before the BSODshttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Frequent-BSOD-with-2016-X1-Carbon-20FB/td-p/3377470
Hi, trying to get a Windows 7 Install done on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB w/ Samsung950 Pro. Bios 1.14 (latest as of May 2016)Special issue is, I need to get it done in a Legacy mode (BIOS,MFT style). I was able to install Win7 based on a win7 image that got the 950pro drivers and the USB3 drivers infused through NTLITE, and then I build an image with Rufus 2.9 (both UEFI/GPT and UEFI/MFT) worked, with the X1 BIOS was set up to UEFI only with CSM.BUT I need to to run on the BIOS setting 'Legacy' and in MFT style, b'cause the special Win7 installer I need to use does not support anything else. I know, sounds weird, but..... . So- is there a fundamental limitation against booting / installing a Win7 on a Carbon X1 2016 20FB - Samsung950 Pro in Legacy 7 MFT mode?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Carbon-X1-2016-20FB-Samsung950-Pro-Windows-7/td-p/3338627
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 (126.96.36.199).Tried several drivers uninstallation/reinstallation, several fresh windows install, problem is still present. Actually on a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit (Anniversary update).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-2016-20FB-Ultranav-unresponsive-for-30sec-1Min-after/td-p/3386336
Just got my brand new X1 Carbon (4gen 2016/20FB) with the 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD (THNSN5512GPU7). Was expecting a blazing fast disk, but it felt sluggish something that AS SSD Benchmark confirms (see attachment). According to the specs this drive should offer up to 2400 Mb/s read and 1500 Mb/s write. But I get 1800 MB/s read and abysmal 113 MB/s write. The machine has all the latest updates from Lenovo (incl BIOS) and all the drivers for Windows 10. Anyone else tested their drives? Found a Dell XPS owner with the same drive that complained about the same issue. Turning off windows write cache buffer flushing does help, but that is not a good answer.

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

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

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

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

And of course, no rollback is possible from 1.17, so I'm stuck with a computer wich won't wake from hibernation correctly.

Hello,I am using X1 Carbon 2016 with OneLink+ and 27 inch 4K Dell monitor. It works all right with 60Hz.I would like to know, if it is possible to connect two 4K 60Hz monitors to the system?I understand, that OneLink+ supports two 4K monitors only with 30Hz and this is out of question. I need 60Hz on both of them. So, can I connect one through OneLink+ and another to MiniDP on notebook itself? Theoretically, it seems OK, because Intel HD 520 graphics itself supports two 4K 60Hz monitors and OneLink+ 30Hz limitation is related to speed only (if I am right). Would be grateful for any advice. Thank you.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-2016-with-two-4K-monitors/td-p/3344865

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!https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/4k-resolution-over-HDMI-with-carbon-X1-2016/td-p/3309982

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

Again, not sure why Lenovo is so hard headed? Resuing to listen to what the MAJORITY of people want. * No OLED displays? How long do we have to wait for this? 2020? * SD Mini slot in the back? Very inconvient. No one is going to use it. (regular SD card on the side works better).* CTRL and FN button still in the wrong location. Why again do we have to fix it in bios when Lenovo can easily make it right? No SD card on my 2015 is the most annoying thing ever. Yes I have a stupid USB SD reader but c'mon. What's the point of thin and light if we have to carry a bunch of add-ons. Especially when the SD card slot doesn't even take up any space. Stupid move. Lenovo is losing sales and customers and it's due to them being out of touch with consumers.
The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop for Lenovo? I doubt that. I think it sells very well for Lenovo. You say the majority of people want an SD card reader? Many mobile systems donīt have one anymore, and they still sell. This is a niche requirement, and Lenovo, who is a company with a wide lineup, has other models to fullfill that need. Aka the ThinkPad T460s, which is dimension and weight wise almost exactly the same as your X1 Carbon 2015, but with an SD Card reader, Ethernet, upgradeable RAM etc.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/The-2016-X1-Carbon-was-a-flop-When-will-the-2017-be-released/td-p/3342977

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

HI everyone, I have a question regarding SIM in x1 carbon. I am not very good with technology, so I don`t know if my x1 carbon has a working SIM slot. It has a slot for SIM card but when I put it on, it doesn`t respond anything, like `detecting` or something like that. My question is: does x1 Carbon (Model 20A8-S00600) has a working SIM card slot. If it does, how can I make it functional. If it doesn`t what do I need to do/buy to make it functional. Thanks,Kushtrim

Welcome to the community.
Sorry you're having issues.
Have you tried the "reset" hole on the bottom of the laptop? I believe that it's unmarked, but you'd use a paper clip to trip the switch. I don't have an X1C, personally, so I can't describe it further. I'm mobile at the moment, so have limited search capability, but if you search the forum for a post by Mark_Lenovo, I believe there's a picture of it.
Regarding contacting Service, I've personally never had anything but good experiences. Please keep in mind that on open forums like these, the good reports seldom get posted.

Greetings, My X1 Carbon Thinkpad will not connect to wi-fi either several times a week, or at worst, several times a day. I can try to get online with the Thinkpad and the tiny orange symbol is lit on the wi-fi icon. Clicking on that, the wi-fi message says, "not connected." Sitting in the same chair, I pick up my Samsung Note tablet, and it effortlessly connects to my home network. My phone connects and my Kindle connects. Everything connects except the Thinkpad. At this moment, the X1 Carbon Thinkpad is connected, and I am typing on it in this forum. But, in an hour, I could pick it up, and it will not be connected. The "Windows Network Diagnostics" will tell me "Problem found." The explanation will be "Problem with wireless adapter or access point." Then it will explain: "Not fixed." Any suggestions?

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

Also have a 20A7 and the same thing occurring, the adaptaive keyboard bar is frozen and the laptop will not wake from suspend. I have updated all drivers using the Lenovo Update utility so the laptop should be current. Any update or resolution on this issue?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Thinkpad-X1-Carbon-sleep-problem/td-p/1523244

I should also mention. I have a Windows 8.1 Pro USB Install as well as a Windows 10 Enterprise USB Install as part of my Microsoft Select, and they both see the 256GB SSD drive to select for the OS. And the Windows 7 Professional USB Install does work on an older laptop. So I'm thinking it's an issue with Windows 7 and that crappy UEFI BIOS or something along that line.

Hello everyone, As proposed by my products update scan, I downloaded and installed the current Intel HD5500 graphic card driver. But it cannot be configured via the Intel graphic card control panel . The control panel doesn't show up (But its executable exists under C:\WINDOWS\system32\GfxUIEx.exe). I cannot run it from the start menu and it is missing from the context menu on the desktop. I tried reinstalling the driver, but couldn't get it to work. So, my question is: where can I get the old graphic card drivers for my laptop, since they don't show up on the download page anymore?

I have a Lenovo X1 Carbon and I was considering either purchasing the Thinkpad Onelink Pro Dock or the Thinkpad One Link Dock. I need to be able to connect a monitor and keyboard to my new computer.

Hey Everyone, I just got a carbon x1 - and keep getting the following error when I try to use the bluetooth. 'The driver for bluetooth peripheral device is not installed.

I have confirmed I have turned bluetooth on by doing Fn F5. Any idea what could be wrong?Appreciate you 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 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 elsehttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Fan-Problem-after-BIOS-Update-ThinkPad-X1-Carbon-3rd-generation/td-p/3307720

Hi all! I just ordered the ThinkPax X1 Carbon 2nd Gen (20A70037US, i7, 8GB, 256GB, Touch). The only thing I wanted and could not get with it is the WWAN Card. I already have the 2011 version of the X1 (1286-CTO) which comes with the Gobi 300-0 WWAN Card (Sierra Wireless MC8355 ? Gobi(TM) 3000). I have been trawling the net and forums to check if I can pull out the Gobi 3000 from the older X1 and use it successfully in the X1 Carbon 2nd Gen. Is the Gobi 3000 compatible with X1 Carbon 2nd Gen? Will drivers or software be an issue? Are the slots compatible? I welcome any and all advice. Thanks!
ThinPad X1 (souped up), now with Win 8 Pro, 64bitBefore that, all kinds of ThinkPad laptops since mid '90s.

Hi, VMarcoUnfortunately Gobi 3000 card you have isn't compatible with X1C Gen 2:- mechanically as it is in the mini pci-e formfactor vs new m.2 formfactor (formerly NGFF) new X1C supports;- logically as your card isn't approved by Lenovo to use in new X1C, it isn't whitelisted for that so as result laptop with that card will be blocked.There are several wwan options for X1C Gen 2 depend of the carrier you'll work with and the speed of wwan access you need:1. Ericsson N5321, HSPA+ 21Mbps:, FRU 04W38422. Gobi 5000 (Sierra Wireless em7355), LTE/EVDO/HSPA+, FRU 04W38012a. the same as item #2., with SIM sku, FRU 04X60383. Sierra Wireless em7345, LTE/HSPA+, FRU 04X6014IMHO the best choice is item #3:- supports both networks class 3g and LTE- supports frequency bands and network carriers almost worldwide, European as well as US (LTE Verizon, AT&T, Sprint)em7345 supports win8/8.1 natively w/o 3rd drivers. For win7 new drivers should be published soon officially. The only lack there isn't a soluton for card activation within Verizon network yet.

Hi all lenovo users,I am using lenovo x1 carbon for last one month. So far i am very satisfied with my device. I am not finding mobile networks (3g/4g) though it supports it. Does anyone have any idea about it.
Not all X1 Carbons have WWAN; many were WWAN ready, with the antennas and SIM card slot fitted but no WWAN card. You need a machine with a WWAN card and a suitable SIM for WWAN to work.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Lenovo-Thinkpad-X1-carbon-3rd-gen-cellular-network-3g-4g-issue/td-p/3395983
