Re: Stuck in Win10 ver. 1511

i guess it's not the thread for simple guesses :(

if you ever suspect your system drive, try cloning it using clonezilla to another one (same or larger size) and try upgrading there. throwing it out there for the lack of better advice.
good luck!

Re: Stuck in Win10 ver. 1511

Create a bootable usb stick (need 4GB or larger) using https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10 and run setup.exe while in windows (not from boot). You might also want to "clean up" any windows updates and temporary installation files (Disk C > Properties > Disk Cleanup > Clean up...

Re: W530, Win10 Video driver?

Some related experience: I was happily running windows 10 v1511 on w530 and after upgrade to Creators Update (v1703) laptop often doesn't come out from suspend (black screen). I'm now considering downgrading windows or video drivers - can you share which windows and nvidia drivers version are you ru...

Re: W520 requires 170W AC adapter

This thread was very helpful to get to know my "new" w530, wasn't aware of all the 90W/170W differences and oddities. So far i did strip the notches in round power tip of 170W adapter using accidentally fitting Husky 8-in-1 Torx Screwdriver with torx bit removed. Now other 90W thinkpads and 90W mini...

Re: T410 First Impressions

Very encouraging and through review, thank you! I also have a flexview t43 (that I love) and the review helps to spend money faster on the upgrade :)

Re: Forthcoming T410/T410S Speculation Thread / Wish List

It's no longer speculation, anyone has details on the matrix used in t510:
15.6” FHD 1920 x 1080, 16:9 aspect ratio,
antiglare, 280 nit,
95% color gamut

PS: t510 is huge compared to t410/t140s, but this screen is something new (at least to me)

Re: Forthcoming T410/T410S Speculation Thread / Wish List

It's amazing that I have similar "problem" and requirements: I have t43 with flexview 1400x1050 display that I love and frankly there was nothing in last couple of years that I want to buy. I'm hoping t410s will match up to my expectations, otherwise I might stay with t43. PS: I do hope t410s will h...
