Re: E570 Display Flickers

Screen is working flawlessly and I have a lifetime warranty from the supplier. Also, since there were no replies from others let me say, Thinkpad Forum RIP.

Re: E570 Display Flickers

It is now a week with the new screen and no problems. The symptom of the problem was intermittent vertical lines. For anyone who might need to replace a laptop screen I bought my replacement at Laptop Screens, https://www.laptopscreen.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2Jvh5O6-4gIVR1SGCh2wBA_XEAAYASAAEgJGIPD_BwE

Re: E570 Display Flickers

I am now on try three since the contact cleaner did not provide a lasting fix. I ordered a replacement screen for $60 and it is installed and working. BTW a youtube video shows how easy it is to replace a screen. It is a little early to declare success but I expect this to be a long term fix.

Re: E570 Display Flickers

Try one helped but there was a small amount of flickering. I took the screen out again and put Radio Shack contact cleaner on the connector pins. This is day two and no flicker. After a few days I will declare victory. It does seem like bad contact caused the problem. Why this laptop had the problem...

Re: E570 Display Flickers

I guess my problem is rare since there are no replies. I undertook to see if I could replace the display and fortunately youtube videos show how to do that and it is easy. One video said that if the screen is flickering I should unplug the multi pin connector, clean it with contact cleaner, and reco...

E570 Display Flickers

My E570 screen flickers and I can correlate the flickering to when I tap on the display. I plugged my TV into the HDMI port and there are no flickers on the TV when I can see them on the Thinkpad display. So it appears that I have a bad display or connector to the display. I have updated the drivers...

Windows 10 Fresh Start

My question is about Fresh Start with Windows 10. It re-installs Windows 10 but how well does that work on a Thinkpad. All of the drivers would come from Windows, not Lenovo, and the Lenovo factory installed software would be missing. Has anyone done a Fresh Start on a Thinkpad and if so what were t...

Re: E560 Screen Goes Black After Long Idle, Must Reboot

Thanks for the replies. It is still under warranty and I can try to get some help there. The Thinkpad warranty used to provide good technical support as well as factory repair. After my last call I found little tech support but their factory repair was still excellent. The E570 with an i7 processor ...

E560 Screen Goes Black After Long Idle, Must Reboot

When I leave my E560 Thinkpad idle for 20 minutes or so the screen goes black and I cannot awaken it and must hold the power button down and restart. This is annoying. Is there any way to prevent this or to find a key that restores the screen? Thanks.

Re: Right Amount of Memory

Thanks for the help. Looking at the Task Manager in Windows 10 would tell a lot about memory usage. I will try to find what the usage is although my sister lives in a different city and is not the best to tell me much about her computer.

Right Amount of Memory

I bought an E570 for my sister and I want to know if its 4G of memory is causing a big slowdown. The processor is i3 Dual Core 2.4 GHz and the HD is 7200 rpm. Would 8G or 16G make a big difference in speed. Thanks.

Re: E 570 Fan Not Coming On

I have installed Core Temp and stressed the laptop and discovered that I can get the core temperatures up to about 40 deg C but not much higher. Also, I have detected that the fan is coming on around 40 deg C but it is not running very fast. That is probably the low speed called for by the the tempe...

E 570 Fan Not Coming On

I have an E 570 with SSD i7 7500. I have noticed that the fan is not coming on. I installed monitoring software for the processor core temperature and found it stayed at 30 deg C when idling and rises to 38 deg C when playing youtube videos but the fan does not come on. The bottom of the laptop does...

Re: T510 Power Manager Reset

Make sure all programs are closed while running the battery calibration. I had seen that one batteryinfoview did not allow the battery calibration to proceed. Simply closing this started the process properly. Cheers, thinkpadcollection Thanks! I thought I had closed all of the programs last time so...

T510 Power Manager Reset

First, I hope I am on the right forum. My issue is that I did a reset of the battery with Power Manager v 3.25. It did a partial job by drawing the battery to 1% charge but it did not complete the task by bringing the battery back up to 100% and resetting the Wh. It did not give any progress reporti...
