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, 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?

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 ?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-carbon-4th-gen-20FB-lid-and-body-alignment/td-p/3441108
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'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?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Missing-SSD-firmware-update-for-X1-Carbon-20FB/td-p/3485035

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.

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.

HelloIt's simpler to answer about carrier and access mode (LTE, 3g) you prefer as this modem supports dozen of the US operators as well doesn't support a big part of them, including market leaders like Sprint, or supports partially (i.e.not every frequency band the carrier operates in).

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).
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!https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-Gen-3-Keyboard-on-X1-Carbon-Gen-2/td-p/1939212

I just purchased a new X1 Carbon with a 512Gb PCIe-NVMe SSD. I failed to follow my general rule of getting as much memory and disk as possible. So, I'd like to upgrade this SSD but have three questions: 1) What actual part do I have to order from Lenovo,2) How do I install it, and3) How do I copy the physical 512Gb SSD to the new 1Tb SSD, so I still have the Lenovo O/S and everything else I've installed on it? I have partitioned my SSD so there is: 1 - 260Mb of a simple EFI System partition1 - 1000Mb of a Recovery partition1 - 84Gb of a Windows 10 partition1 - 391Gb of an additional partition (defined as D:\) Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I just bought my NFS Carbon Collectors Edition about a month ago, and the first time I installed it everything worked perfectly...but just recently I did a complete reboot and cleaning of my system (as in everything). When everything on my comp was back to normal, I tried to install NFS again but alas! It failed!
For some reason the only point I can reach during the installation process is the license agreement, which appears blank. If I agree with the license, it then tells me that I need Direct X 0(yes 0) or higher to continue.
I have no idea what that's about... I checked my disk, which is so new it doesn't have time to get any scratches on it, and even scanned it for errors, but nothing showed up.
I really need some help on this matter. Any support will be appreciated.
Install the latest version of DirectX, available here, and see if it works.
Hi,My X1 with great specs is not as good as it should be (i7, 8GB RAM, 500G SSD).2 -3 times a day it crashes (BSOD). After installing Synaptics general drivers, that's gone. But I end up with many applications not scrolling.The fingerprint is unstable. Often the light is green when logging on, sometimes still working, sometimes not working at all. Searching the internet, I find I am not alone.This is my first post on this forum.I have been using Thinkpads for something like 15 years, and mostly been proud and happy about it. X, T-series, even 770 (?). They were all very stable and usable for business use.My X1 is mediocre however.I would very much like Lenovo to do something about these issues for their flagship system.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-carbon-failures/td-p/3343246

My computer was doing some Windows updates yesterday. I thought the process was done, but now I'm thinking maybe I shut it down a little too soon. This morning when I tried to boot up the computer, I couldn't get past the start up screen with the Lenovo logo. Sometimes the screen just stays there, sometimes it moves on and the screen just goes blank. I can't make it past this screen. I've tried doing a hard reset. I poked around some of the settings in safe mode (which I can't always get to), but nothing seemed to work. Anyone have any ideas on recovering rather than having to wipe the whole computer and start over?
I got my ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th gen directly from Lenovo two days ago. This morning it won't turn on let alone boot. Tried the reset several times. Tried the press power 10 times for 1 sec then 30 sec. Still won't turn on. I spent about two days getting everything set up. Appartently two days wasted. I am working with Lenovo on getting a new machine but this is pretty frustrating. I don't see a way to disconnect the battery whcih is part of the "press power 10 times for 1 sec then 30 sec" solution that I have seen on the web. I think Mark_Lenovo has posted on this (for perhaps older X1s) but I cannot see a way to contact him. I think this must be some sort of static issue. I really hope this is not a common X1 problem. I wonder if I should just get a refund and start with a different computer. I have a ThinkStation which works well which is why I went for a ThinkPad to replace my 2012 Macbook Pro Retina Display.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/x1-Carbon-won-t-start-up/td-p/3419242

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

Hi and welcome, kushtrimYour laptop is "WWAN ready" only, i.e.has the SIM card holder, the SIM card reader and WWAN antennas installed.

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.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-512-GB-SSD-Encryption/td-p/3305843

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.

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.

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...
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... http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkpad-x1-carbon-%282015%29/CT7007540http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for//thinkpad-x1-carbon-%282015%29Best regards...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Carbon-X1-Gen3-SSD-questions/td-p/2049203

hello, i must change my keyboard because the water, so i serached almost internet and i don't see any keyboard for my model ?? WANT TO KNOW THE PRICE ? AND ALSOO SHIPPING TO QUÉBEC CITY ?Any one here to help me please Thanks?? PAR
I am not certain I've identified the part correctly, but this looks like the French Canadian keyboard for the X1 Carbon Gen 3 (MT-M beginning 20BS or 20BT). If so, I believe the part you need is FRU 00HT302 or 00HN947 (the two are equivalent, just made by different manufacturers). You should be able to find a supplier online - I'd start looking on the Lenovo site for options in your country (click).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Replacement-keyboard-for-my-X1-Carbon/td-p/3427942
I'm trying to find information for installing an EM7455 LTE card in a thinkpad carbon gen 4. The card shipped seperately from the laptop. There is already a wireless Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 (8260NGW) NGFF wifi Card that is installed.http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-X-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-X1-...I can't find any information for this other then the hardware docs which show how to replace a WLAN card which is where the current card is installed. Does the EM7455 replace the 8260NGW or which slot should the LTE card be installed?Pic of board attached. EM7455 card in bag. 8260NGW is under the flap I'm lifting with my finger. Also after the install are there specific drivers I need to install or will windows detect and install the proper drivers? (Win 7)Thinkpad carbon X1 gen 4
Good day and welcome to the community.
The WWAN card installs in the upper right (based on your image).
Please see manual pages 66 and 67 of the HMM: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x1carbon_mt20fb-20fc_x1yoga_hmm_en_sp40j72016.pdf
As far as needed drivers, please see: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-X-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-X1-... and then select Networking: Wireless WAN from the Component dropdown.
Hope this helps.
I was just reading the User Manual for a new X1 Carbon that will be delivered next week. It includes this advice under General Tips for Preventing Problems: - "Use disk defragment tool regularly on your solid-state drive to improve data seek and read times." (p. 91 [pdf p. 107] https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x1carbon_mt20fb-20fc_x1yoga_ug_en.pdf?linkTrack=PSPro...) Is this supposed to read "non-solid-state drive", or am I misinformed about when to use defrag?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-2016-Defrag-SSD-Can-this-be-right/td-p/3432162

My X Carbon model A nd generation I believe suddenly stopped detecting closure of the lid nbsp Previously when I close the lid it not detected lid being X1 Carbon closure would put the X1 Carbon lid closure not being detected laptop into Sleep but now it just continues running nbsp I checked the Control Panels setting and it is still setup to go into Sleep X1 Carbon lid closure not being detected when lid closure is detected so it seems it is smply not detecting it nbsp nbsp In addition I often work with this machine docked and previously when it was docked it would not use the attached LCD screen but would only display on the two monitors I have attched to the Lenovo docking station nbsp Now when I power up hte laptop on the docking station it displays one monitor on the laptop LCD even though the lid is closed and only on one of the monitors attached to the docking station nbsp I fix this by going into the Control Panel - gt Display where I know see three monitors two external and once LCD on the laptop and I can disable it from there but I shouldn't have to do this everytime I dock nbsp nbsp I don't see any mechanical switches to detect lid closure so it must be a magnetic detetion nbsp Any ideas on how to diagnose this nbsp Thanks Matthttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-lid-closure-not-being-detected/td-p/3362446
I normally use the X1 carbon with the display duplicated to a Dell monitor. This stopped working. Only the laptop display is now available, with the Dell monitor in the HDMI port not being recognised. The display on the laptop does not have the correct resolution and overflows the bottom of the screen. The display resolution cannot be changed (greyed out). Any suggestions on how to fix this?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-Display-Problems/td-p/3415824
Hi, I want to have the fingerprint working into W10 on my X1 carbon 2012. I tried to install drivers from the lenovo website but nothing works. It's working into Ubuntu but not in Windows...

My new employer needs me to use Carbon Copy (by Compaq) to remote-control clients' PCs from my home office during troubleshooting. She suggested a second phone line, which is the way they have done things in the past. The phone folks said a DSL line would allow me to talk and do internet at the same time, plus of course the access would be nice and snappy. I'd like to go with the DSL, but my boss is not sure it will work out. Has anybody done this? What are the TCP/IP settings and config info?
Thanks--this is a great site.
