    DB:4.35:Microsft Security Essential And Lenovo Thinkpad T61p Laptop 73




    I was usingMicrosoft Security Essential (MSE) on my Lenovo ThinkPad T61p laptop without any problem and in fact it was doing a pretty good job. After I did the new upgrade for MSE (a message showed up in the MSE for the upgrade), now it takes forever
    for my laptop to load a page in Internet Explorer. Also the system has been slowed down dramatically. When I undo the upgrade using system restore, everything goes back to normal.I uninstalled the MSE and installed it from the website again andthe problem
    is still there.Any ideas or comments? I am running windows XP 32bit SP3 and the laptop is updated regularly.

    Thanks!

    Is there a driver available for the Conexant HSF modem used in the T61p that supports voice features like speakerphone? I'd like to be able to dial regular voice calls from my laptop and use a headset (wired or Bluetooth) for conference calls. Conexant says the drivers included in Windows XP don't support voice telephony features, and that you need to get different drivers from your laptop manufacturer. I searched the Lenovo web site and didn't find anything.

    Hello brothers: Has anyone met the same issue of "can't start the machine due to GPU-gate " ? Recently my poor T61p got a serious problem. When I press the power button, the screen stay black for long time with one long beep two short beeps along. Then the "z" LED was always on. And even I turn it off by force turn it on again, still no action. My god ! I guessed it was caused by the additional meory, so removed one , still can't start: one long beep two short beeps. Is it the GPU-gate from Nvidia ? Seems Dell has admitted the GPU-gate: Nvidia's GPU defect. But Lenovo still denied. Even I called their 800 phone. For me, it's bad news, because this laptop is bought @ HK, I need send back it to HK get serviced.

    DB:2.73:Problem Replacing T61p Motherboard dz


    I bought a Thinkpad T61p 3 years ago, now fortunately enough, graphic card does not work now, and fortunately enough warranty from lenovo is expired. For 3 years, this laptop is protected not only by ibm active protection function, but mostly by my carefulness, it never fell from a desk or anything else. 3 years later, it went ok before i got on the plane, and after i got off, it could not start, screen is black. I bought it during my study in U.S law school, now i got back here in Beijing, when i took it service center, there are so many people in the service center waiting to be served, i even have to be called with a number, and there are 14 people waiting before me. What asarcasm! Thinkpad is famous for its quality, but in the service center here, so many broken thinkpads. And they charged me 3500-4000 RMB for replacing a motherboard, that is around 547 dollars. Even they charged this ridiculous cost, i have to wait a week to be informed whether they can get a motherboard for replacement.

    Today lenovo relased its thinkpad PAD, and i will promise to lenovo, i will never buy a lenovo product, lenovo brand is rubbish now, and thinkpad brand is ruined by a bunch of Chinese executives. I am really ashamed lenovo, a big group in my country just took a short time to ruin a good reputation thinkpad brand.

    DB:2.73:Problem Replacing T61p Motherboard dz

    If you've already paid to replace your system board, then continue to follow through with it and get some astisfaction, the replacement board should be reliable and last for many years.

    If you haven't, and you want to do an Intel conversion, I usually just swap out the lower chassis, getting a replacement that comes with the heatsink you need, or you can replace the system board, heatsink and related brackets into your nVidia model. When I do them I usually get $150 for good used (tested) parts, and $100 labor for the job. This is probably your most reliable option if you want to fix it on a budget. Anything cheaper would involve a used/repaired/refurbished board that most likely has the same nVidia GPU that may last for 10 years, or 10 days.

    If you were in the usa I might even do the job for you, but I think the cost to ship it from China and back would be huge, but on the otherhand, I think even skilled labor is much less there so you could probably find a local shop that can do the conversion for you.

    Good luck, and sorry to see yet another unhappy thinkpad owner, it's a shame because they really are the best laptops on earth, excepting for the nVidia problem of course.

    Hi,I recently bought a Lenovo advanced mini dock type 2504 to connect a Lenovo Thinkpad T61p (15.4 inch) to a 30 inch monitor with a max resolution of 2560 x 1600. After having tried three different docking stations of the same type (of which the last one was sent by Lenovo after contacting customer support) I still can't get it to work. Based on the following findings and efforts undertaken, what else do you think I could I try to make it work?With all three mini docks, the monitor is only kept awake (it goes into power saving mode and pops to a black screen immediately again) when connected to the DVI port of the dock and set to the highest resolution of 2560x1600 through Windows 7. Depending on the dock, images are displayed by the monitor at resolutions at or below 1280 x 1024, although with artefacts (flickering).Monitor (Dell Ultrasharp 3008wfp) and dual DVI cable fully functional at highest resolution (2560 x 1600) when connected to desktop.When connected to the VGA port of the dock, the highest attainable resolution of 1920x1200 is displayed without any problems.All the latest Lenovo drivers and BIOS updates have been installed.A different version of Windows (XP instead of 7) has been tried.In the BIOS the display option 'Digital (DVI)' (or something close to that) has been tried.I would really love to be able to use the big screen at full resoltion as a secundary monitor to my laptop, so any suggestions would be really appreciated. Also, I'm starting to become more and more worried it might be a problem of the T61p itself. What do you think?

    I never did that specific replacement but I did have to replace the entire keyboard on my T42 a couple of years ago and must say that it was really easy to do. This is the good part...The not so good part is, in view of all the key failures I have known about, it seems that the keys on IBM/Lenovo laptops would greatly benefit from an improved design. They seem to be quite prone to playing all these little pranks on you...They are still great machines, though. And the quality of service is broadly recognized as far above the competition.

    every thinkpad dock ever made has been designed to accommodate any battery installed, even if the battery protrudes from the back of the thinkpad.the dock supports up to 2560x1600 through a dual-link DVI-I socket. your T61p supports up to 2560x1600 output via DVI.

    No, but you can install up to 8GB (2x 4GB modules) of DDR2 in any case.

    Lenovo documentation says 4GB max but that was based on the RAM modules that were available at the time the T61p came out. Later 4GB modules became available. They work fine providing they're DDR2, not DDR3. These days 4GB DDR2 modules tend to be very expensive since they're still in some demand from people like you who want to upgrade older systems.

    Also, in order to utilize this extra RAM you will need to have a 64-bit operating system.

    Hi, this is my first post in this forum and my first problem with Thinkpads!I recently bought a used laptop, a TP T61p, that have warranty until August 2010.When I received the laptop, I wanted to restore the OS back to factory default. I followed the steps properly. Tried both restore the system by pressing ThinkVantage-button at start, andtriedusing the followed Lenovo-DVD's. The problem shows up in the end when it is installing the Norton Anti Virus. The installation stops responding and the HDD-activity also stops. I have left the computer for several hours without anything happens.Does anyone know what is wrong?Thanks.// David.

    Couple of things - the DVD drive could also be bad (corrupting files as it reads them to transfer them to the HDD - this may or may not be detected as a read error). Also, your NAV subscription may have expired and this might somehow be stopping the install process (?)

    I bought my ThinkPad T61p a year ago. It came with Vista Ultimate 32-bit preinstalled, which runs incredibly lame. I already tried to get Vista x64 recovery-DVDs, but Lenovo would not sell them to me.

    After seeing the performance increase on other T61p running Windows7 x64 I wanted to have Windows 7 recovery-DVDs. You can get them if you have purchase your ThinkPad after 25.6.2009 and thus qualify for Lenovos Windows 7 Upgrade program.
    At the service-line I asked the guy how I can obtain those Recovery-DVDs for my T61p. He told me that at the moment Lenovo does not offer any option to purchase those Recovery-DVDs if you do not qualify for the upgrade-program. I was told the only way to get Windows 7 is to buy it from Microsoft. So there would be no drivers installed, nor any Lenovo-software.
    Don't have to mention what a crappy job it is to clean-install a new OS, download all the drivers and software form Lenovo's website and install them...
    I suppose those recovery-DVDs are lying around everywhere at Lenovo at the moment. So if Lenovo is offering Windows 7 recovery-DVDs for T61/T61p why do I have to do the whole installation process on my own. Is that why you pay for a Lenovo?
    Why does Lenovo not offer an option to purchase recovery-DVDs with a different OS-release, than the one preinstalled? I cannot imagine someone has to buy a new laptop just to get a Windows 7 preinstalled on his ThinkPad (incl. service partition, etc.). Especially if the machine is just 1 year old - like mine!
    I placed my customer wish to the guy from the service-line to be able to buy recovery-DVDs for different OSin future. See if there will be any reaction from Lenovo!?

When I press the Eject request button on the dock, the green led starts to blink and then stops blinking. After this the laptop is totally freezed, with sound looping over and over again from the speakers.

    Worth noting is that I can undock with no problems from the console (no X server running). This seems to indicate that this is an issue with the nvidia drivers?This seems also be the case with the laptop freezing when I close the lid while X is running.

    I own a Lenovo Thinkpad T61p certified used unit with a 1 year on-site warranty. The laptop arrived with a defective LCD. My subsequent claim is now handled by Atlanta, GA service center. They have sent a technician last Friday but he was not able to repair the LCD as the spare part he'd received from lenovo warehouse was in even worse quality than the one he was trying to replace. Another LCD he brought in today had just the same problem - DOA (dark/white spots or lines).When I called the support line at 800-426-7376 nobody could guarantee if and when I would ever receive a 100% working LCD. Neither did they care too much about all the time not only I wasted, but your employee spent and billed trying to do his job but failing.Please advise how I should proceed! Or at least let me know if there are any working LCDs for Lenovo Thinkpad T61p in stock at your facilities at all??? Thanks in advance.

    Dude,I was having the same problem. You can get it to work if you go into the TCP/IP properties for your wireless connection and hard code the IP, DNS, and WINS addresses instead of letting the computer automaticall resolve them. You can get themby logging into the Verizon modem via the hardwired computer. Once you do that it works great. Also, this on;y seems to happen with my Lenovo R61 computer.

    Dear forum members,Greetings from lands far away :-)I am in the market for a laptop, "specifically" for scientific computing - data processing, running numerical models, coding and visualization (Python, openGL, Tcl/Tk, Vis5d). I have decided to try T61p. I have couple questions/concerns, please.1. Is gnu/linux available (preloaded) on the T61p? I am a long time Debian/Ubuntu user. I wonder why lenovo doesn't mention about the availability of gnu/linux on the T61p? It is mentioned here tho: http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS8001895768.html2. I am planning on the following configuration:T9300 (2.5GHz, 800MHz,6MBL2)NVIDIA Quadro Fx 570M (256MB OpenGL)3GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz---I heard that usually the gnu/linux preloaded models (at least the ones mentioned on the lenovo page) are available with Intel GMA X3100 integrated chipset, and "NOT" the NVIDIA FX 570M, which I want to have. So if Lenovo sells T61p with gnu/linux preloaded (RHEL, SLED, whatever), then is it possible to keep the same configuration mentioned above?3. Finally, I would appreciate it if any of you guys can share any information on the T61p (other than that which is already available from the T61p page) / your experiences/suggestions regarding whether this is a good machine for my requirement(s)..Thanks in advance for your time and any help!Cheers,/rk

    Carbon_Unit,Thanks for the link, I have seen it before. Some of the hardware combinations tested are not avilable (e.g. NVIDIA card tested with the z3u comes with quadro FX 700 chipset which is not listed as an option. It's hard trying to put together and get what one wants..)/rk

I have a VGA-DVI adapter plugged in to the T61, and that is in turn plugged into a DVI-HDMI cable, which is plugged into the television. I'm not getting any picture at all. I have tried all the BIOS settings for display, but I think I have some other setting wrong. How do you have display options configured in Windows and/or the Nvidia driver?

    I have just encountered the infamous 1 long beep, followed by 2 short beeps. I know this beep code refers to a problem with either the ram, gpu, or lcd assembly. Ive had the laptop since 2003, and recently I've replaced the LCD backlight (a daunting task btw). Based on the recent problem I had with the LCD, I'm assuming the beep code is referring to the LCD Assembly. How can I remedy this issue or at least check whether the lcd assembly is the actual culprit? Thank you.Video card: Nvidia Quadro FX 570M 

    DB:2.55:Lenovo T61p - Lcd Assembly Failure kz

    The OP indicated that this is a 2003 machine.

    I recently contacted sales to extend my T400 warranty with a post warranty. That agent said that a total of 5 years was the max.

    Is it different for a T61p, or is the OP out of luck?

    So, this laptop is definitely still under warranty, and there are a few cracks in my screen. I am to understand that this is not covered under warranty.I'm very capable of replacing the LCD screen for myself, but I was just wondering how much Lenovo would charge for this replacement. If it's less than $160 including taxes and shipping, then I might go for that, otherwise I'm just going to purchase it from another seller.Options?

    at least 500 dollars if not more.

    I agree, the black screen with 3beep error is a very common problem and the only solution is a replacement board. I suggest you read some of the other topics in this forum on the subject, many have good and useful info in them and there is also a lot of misinformation out there too, as well as an abundance of improperly repaired boards, so it's best to educate yourself before looking into repair options.

I cannot see any way of doing this in the T61P. Am I missing something?ThanksAnthony

    DB:2.52:Howto Disable Primary Hdd On T61p? 77

    I havea very similardesire on the W510--to disable the primary drive, and boot from an external drive such that the internal drive is not enabled or accessible. I.e., total protection of the primary drive from viruses or other means of attack while the laptop's alternate (external) drive is in use.Unfortunately, I've found no way to do this. I even tried assigning a HDD password to the primary drivein the bios, thinking that I could just avoid entering the password when I wanted to boot to the external drive. But no luck, the primary HDD password seems to be required even to boot to an external drive!The only means I found toachieve isolationis to physically remove the primary drive. However, the phsyical connectors on the laptop are not built/intended (according to the lenovo documentation) for frequent removal/insertion of drives, not to mention the addition time it takes to do the swap.So the idea that I can use two different drives with my laptop, in a completely protected/isolated manner, on a daily basis seems unsolvable. Would love to be proved wrong!

    I installed Microsoft Security Essentials. When I check the status of my PC, through the Security Center, I am advised that Microsoft Security Essentialsis ON and Windows Defender is OFF. Do I need Windows Defender and Microsoft Security Essential
    both ON or is that redundant? Does Windows Defendow accomplish anything not accomplished by Microsoft Security Essentials?

    DB:2.51:Thinkpad T61p Os And Hdd Upgrade - Advices Needed sm

    My advice would be to add an SSD as a boot drive, but get a good one like an Intel 320 series. Many of the cheaper ones tend to fail. If you're on a budget, you can save about $100 by using Vista instead of Seven, it's about the same in regards to performance and stability. You can also use a 5400rpm drive in the ultrabay for storage. Since it won't be running your OS, the slower spindle speed can be an advantage, less power, heat and spinup time, and won't make much difference in performance since your OS will be running on SSD.If you don't want to use an SSD, you can install some Intel turbo memory. It's not popular because it was expensive and didn't make a lot of noticeable difference, but you can buy them cheap now, about $12 for a 1GB chip and it prevents repeated disc reads on your primary drive by storing the data on much faster static ram.My favorite config is definitely an SSD with second drive in ultrabay, along with a nice Penryn CPU. These systems can really fly when setup well.

    As lead_org says, call Lenovo and explain the problem you have encountered, especially the error message, "The process has encountered an internal error." If they don't offer to send you free recovery media, politely explain to them that it's not your fault that you can't make the media on your own. If you're firm and persistent (call back later and try another agent) they will relent

    You are supposed to make the recovery discs before you downgrade to XP. I don't think you can buy Vista for $50.00 anywhere else. Especially with all the drivers and apps preinstalled.

    Hello, I have a T61p, with 4GB or Ram, and Windows XP. I am trying to connect my JVC GRD22U Camcorder to my laptop, but it doesnt work. Camera is on, but windows does not detect it, nothing shows up, no new drive, or anything. I checked in the device manager, and teh port is working just fine.

    Yes, I have tried 2 cameras, the JVC mentioned above, and a Canon. They work just fine on my desktop computer with Flash Media Encoder, but the lenovo laptop, is no-go. I literally have tried everything, it is the lenovo's laptop problem, as 2 differnt cameras, and 2 different lenovo laptops have the same problem. I have used the firewire port for the camera on my desktop, and they work just fine. I dont know what else to try, except to wait for a fix from lenovo or something.oh yeah, the drivers are installed properly on the laptop, and in device manager, it says the port is working properly.Message Edited by BCHurricane89 on 04-08-2009 12:31 PM
