I've searched all variables I could think of here to no avail.
I also have tried several times to track it down on Lenovo's site. I can repair it and trouleshoot it with the documentation I've found.
But, I'd also like to be able to "run" it. My new X200 should be here today/tomorrow and I'd really like to RTFM before it gets here.
Thanks for any leads someone can provide.
Solved! Go to Solution.

there are no user manuals, only service and maintenance manuals. if you have specific questions then please feel free to ask questions here on the forum as we'd be glad to help answer them.
using your X200 will be as easy as opening the lid and pressing the power button.

Thanks, I just "read" through the material that came with the X200. You'r right about no physical manual being provided. I'll check out the Access Help on the PC
and if there are unanswered noob questions, I'll check this great group.
Now to find the perfect external compact USB CD\DVD drive.

Hi talltim! Welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
If your ThinkVantage button doesn't work, the ThinkVantage Productivity Center software must have a problem.
Your system type and OS you are running will help the community help you more.

I have just bought a 'previously owned' Thinkpad X200. I too am having difficulty finding the User Manual using the ThinkVantage button. When I press it, it brings up the 'Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox', but no Access Help. I am using Windows 7, which I should imagine was re-installed before I bought the Thinkpad. My product is 74585MG.
Also I believe that I should be able to plug a sim card in somewhere, but can't find a slot for it.
I also have the Lenovo docking station with the optical drive in it.
Any hel[p that you can give on my 2 problems would be much appreciated!

I am having the same problem.
I have the latest updates from Lenovo, including the ThinkVantage utility. Running Windows 7 on an X200s.
When I tried to use Help, it took me to the generic Windows Help. I am trying to adjust contrast, but the Windows Help directs me to a contrast control, which does not exist on my monitor (this being a laptop!).
When I press the ThinkVantage button, I am presented with 5 categories:
Security & Networking
Ultimate Business Tool
I select Lenovo Support, and am presented with 5 links:
Lenovo Warranty Status
Important Support Links
Performance and Configuration History
Drive Space Manager
News and Information from Lenovo
I select Important Support Links, and get two choices:
Lenovo User Forums (which takes me here)
Lenovo Support and Downloads (which takes me to a Hardware Manual I can download).
So if the user manual is so 21st century that it doesn't use dead trees, where is it?
I've checked all the other possible options from ThinkVantage, but cannot find anything on adjusting display contrast.
Can anyone help me?
