Memory type on T460: only DDR3 or also DDR4?

Hi guys, I'd like to understand well the memory types supported by my T460. The CPU is an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6600U; I see in the Intel site: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/88192/intel-core-i7-6600u-processor-4m-cache-up-to-3-40-ghz.html that it supports both DDR4-2133 and DDR...

Memory type on T410

Hi guys, here we have a few T410 and we'd like to add memory (they've come with a 2x2gb ram). According to this: https://support.lenovo.com/it/en/solutions/migr-74566 i should buy PC3-8500 or PC3-10600 memory expansion. I've just tried to fit the memory of a x230 that is a PC3-12800S and it worked (...

Re: T440s - trick need to power on

Hi guys,
has anyone tried to update the bios?
I'm running linux so i'm not able to test a bios update easily, but the Lenovo Vantage (running only on windows) has a tool to check for any update available and to update the bios.

Would someone ilke to give it a try?
Thanks

Lid sensor problem

Hi everybody, I add a new issue to the list, for my T440s :) I have this problem with the lid, that if i move it around a certain angulation (let's say a bit under 90°) the display starts blinking until i move it a little and then the screen goes locked. I think it's due to the lid sensor. (In the m...

Don't need to press the power button in the between. After that, i'm able to turn on the laptop. I've tried the batt...

Re: T440S sometimes won't boot unless i detach che internal battery

Hi and thanks for the reply.
I've switched off "USB always ON" in BIOS, but nothing has changed.
USB ports seem all ok (i've tried with an usb key and a mouse)-
Just curious: how'd the charger affect the computer in this way?

Hi everybody. My t440s has now this annoying problem. Sometimes (i mean: every 2 days or so) it won't boot. Not only, if i attach the power cord, nothing happens (usually attaching the power cord, the red led blinks 3 times). It seems dead. I try removing external battery, pressing the reset switch ...

Hi I would point out the T61p have nVidia graphics chips that have higher than normal failure rates and since it's not under warranty it's unlikely Lenovo would fix it for you. If you're most interested in portability I'd take the T400. If not take the T500. thanks for the reply and for the hint. I'...

Excuse me, Harryc,
i think that link (and not rewrite or copy/paste the post) to the original post was a very-very-soft sort of cross posting.
It was because there's a T6x forum, and a T4x0/T5x0 forum, and i'd like to obtain opinion from both sides.

Sorry!
