The Lenovo Thinkvantage Toolbox recently quit working on my T420 Win 7 laptop. It would not open and when it did, it would not show any information. After 2 weeks of this, I decided to just delete the program and re-download it from Lenovo's website.
I went to the download drivers and software but I can't find the Thinkvantage Toolbox download. I called Tech support and they were less than helpful. I was on the drivers and software screen and asked him if he could tell me which one I needed to download. He told me just do do a system restore all the way back to when I bought my machine. I explained to him I did not want to go that far if I was going to loose all my information and asked him what would happen if I do a system restore. He then told me to "nevermind" and that the Thinkvantage Toolbox was no longer supported and was not available any more. I asked him if there was another program that took the place of the Toolbox and he told me there was not, and unless I restored my system I was not going to have the program any more.
Can anyone help me find this program again? Thanks in advance for the help.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Here's a thread on it.
Everything happened at once. Toolbox went end of life and the replacement went online. I don't think it was quite ready yet. They are still working on it.
If you are using the preloaded OS, Toolbox should still be on your computer. In C: maybe in SWTools or the drivers folder. If it is still on your computer, it can still be used. There's just no support for it though.

I finally installed the new Lenovo Solution Center today, and now I find that the Access connections does not work now for my wireless connections. When I click the Access Connections program it does the same thing, a black box opens up, but never loads the program, and I have to Ctrl, alt Delete and tell it to stop the non-responding program. Don't know if this is related to the other Toolbox failure or not. Any ideas on this failure now?
