Re: Lenovo U400 Battery Replacement Warning

make sure you install intel drivers first ( rapiddrive, matrix storage etc ) then video, audio, power management and others.

Re: Lenovo U400 Battery Replacement Warning

@das

I think RMA was a mistake.  It probably won't fix anything (unless by RMA, you are looking for a refund not replacement)

 

That issue is clearly software, and most likely the lenovo power managment driver.  I imagine that issue will be fixed in an update in the future - if this laptop sales well and dosen't get canceled.

 

Also.  If you use the lenovo one-key feature and have your computer recloned to the lenovo factory image.  You can upgrade from home premium to professional through the microsoft/windows method.  Not sure if a standard retail key will work, or you needa specific upgrade key.  I would take that question to the microsft windows 7 support website.

I think the RMA was a mistake too. Oh well, at least i'm somewhat experienced now in opening this laptop lol! But seriously I can't wait for Lenovo to release their updated drivers. Because I heard on the gadget sites that some users are experiencing crashes just by surfing the internet and I did notice that too when I clean installed it.

Re: Lenovo U400 Battery Replacement Warning

I am no having the same issue ?? It didnt show up for the fist 2 or 3 days of use but now it's giving me that less than 40% error. Did you ever get this fixed?

Reuben,

 

No. I made a decision to make an exchange for another brand instead. For me, it's not worth the time to upgrade this. It's unnaceptable for Lenovo to implement a design that's a PITA to upgrade and clean install.

 

I bought the U400 on B&H and I was glad that B&H was able to accept the exchange.

Re: Lenovo U400 Battery Replacement Warning

Sorry to necro this.

 

But how much battery life are you guys getting with the 40% thing.  Basically. Is your battery life actually reduced. Or is it just bull**bleep**ting and you ccan just uninstall that program
