Sometimes the Sim cards pop out. Check that first. If it's not that, take it to where you bought the Sim card. If it's a new sim card, it may be too large for your machine or it may be defective. If it's older, it may be damaged.

I use a Lenovo TB2-X30L. I connect to my WiFi, but it switches off after 1 second. What is the problem

If you are not seeing the 3g modem in Device Manager (Start > Run devmgmt.msc and press Enter, or access via control panel) try installing the driver for your systems 3G modem , which I believe is available in the link below, but enter the serial # etc. on the page just to be sure you get the right one. If the modem is showing as an "Unknown Device" or has a Yellow Exclamation Point displayed to indicate it as a non-working device in the Windows Device Manger, try right clicking on it, select uninstall, and check the box to delete existing driver software and reboot. Once rebooted, it should re-detect the modem and install the needed drivers automatically.
Note that from Device Manager, you can from the View Menu select "Show Hidden Devices" and see devices not normally displayed., so see if anything shows up there too.

If the device is working, but you are having trouble with it recognizing the SIM Card, you might read through this older thread and see if that helps.

Stuck at BIOS password in my Thinkpad

The laptop cannot decide by itself to ask for a password. It was set by the owner. Ask around you to see if anybody admits doing it.
Or take the computer to a Lenovo service center to have the password removed. Be ready to show proof of ownership. Be ready to pay foe the service if the laptop is no longer under warranty.
Out of curiosity: have tried contacting Lenovo support?

I have no sound in my computer bt it shows dat its working all the drivers are updated

Just any Ol' Lenovo Notebook PC motherboard?


If you want the solution to your problem, I need the info off of the bottom of the laptop.

Using Lenovo ThinkPad T61 6458-GW4 as an example;

Lenovo = Manufacturer (IBM)
ThinkPad = Series
T61 = Subseries
6458 = Machine Type
GW4 = Model

I will then find the Drivers download page for YOUR Lenovo, and the Audio driver.

Don't care what Device Manager states. Need to reinstall the Audio driver.
