Various problems with Thinkpad Edge 13

Hi guys,

I'd be very grateful if you could help with the following Thinkpad Edge 13 issues:

1. Heating. The fan is blowing hot air from the vent on the left. The bottom left of the keyboard also gets very, very hot. How can I cool it down?

2. WiFi. The WiFi adapter turns off after the laptop goes to sleep. I think have to run the troubleshoot to restore it again. Very annoying problem - any ideas on a fix?

3. Freezing. This might be related to the heat problem, but since I installed a new hdd, the laptop freezes for about 30 seconds before coming back to life again. It seems especially the case when watching video.

4. Video. When watching video on VLC, if I jog the laptop only slightly, the video freezes or stutters. I have to keep the laptop perfectly still to avoid this. Is that normal?

Any help with this would be much appreciated!

Thanks kindly.

What operating system do you use? How did you install the operating system? Did you use recovery media that you have burnt yourself, did you get system restore disks from Lenovo or did you use another method?

Hi, I'm using Windows 7 64 bit, Professional version. I installed the OS from discs I made via the recovery program. It's all original software from Lenovo . 

 

Thanks.

Re: Various problems with Thinkpad Edge 13

Hallo,

 

i can only give some general advice:

 

Upgrade to the latest BIOS, you find it on Lenovo's support site. 

 

Run Windows Update, upgrade to Microsoft Update, it's free. Let it search for updates and install them. Set it to install updates automatically. After updates have been installed, have it search for updates again - until it doesn't find any more updates. 

 

Install ThinkVantage System Update, if it isn't installed yet. Run ThinkVantage System Update, let it check for drivers. Let System Update update drivers. Personally, i would not let System Update update BIOS and drivers simultaneously.
