Trackpad keeps freezing when lan cable is plugged in

On one of my user's Lenovo X230 the track pad freezes completely when he plugs in the LAN cable in to the Ethernet port on the laptop and works normally when he unplugs the cable from the Ethernet port. I dont think it is a problem with the hardware, so please advise. Thanks in advance

    we recommend telling what os this is.
    windows xp to 10? what?
    let me do wild guessing, no history by OP
    had w7 upgraded to w10 not asking if the oem supports that w10,oops
    and may devices are now dead.
    you and millions of other did this.
    in most cases I can recover, this
    but not if the device dead has no driver earth that supports w10, sorry.
    in those cases we by a w10 ethernet usb dongle.
    ending this pain.

SOURCE: keyboard locks randomly after login

Sound like you might have a virus - try running antivirus program - such as Avast or Antivir - which is free.
If that doesn't work, then try doing a System Restore - if that doesn't work, then do a System Recovery complete re-install - but back up your pictures and documents first as you will lose everything and you'll be starting over again fresh.

SOURCE: How do I switch my connection from wireless to LAN

It will automatically pull an IP address when you plug in a LAN cable just disable or turn off your wireless. There should be either a switch to turn off your wi-fi or use your function keys to turn it off. Another option would be double click on the two monitors and globe icon in your bottom right hand corner of your screen and choose disconnect.

This sounds like hard drive issues, remove hardware and reseat it back in place, if no change! sub out the ram one at a time testing as you go.If still nothing! the hard drive needs to be a assessed for possible replacement.

Lenova x230 tablet swivel hinge repair

It is possible to replace the hinge, but it is a couple hours of tricky work. If you are not comfortable completely dismantling your computer, I would take it to a repair shop. You can usually find the hinge on ebay. Just search for "thinkpad x230 tablet swivel hinge part".

I replaced the hinge on my x61 tablet without any trouble, but I am very comfortable with repairing computers. Take lots of pictures to make sure you get it back together correctly, and keep track of where the screws go, there are a lot of them. Good luck!

Here is the repair manual for the x230:

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

Getting low or no connectivity error when trying to connect laptop and other devices to 5-port DLINK switch. Lan line going to switch is confirmed working as i'm able to plug the laptop and other devices...

please change the cable which is connecting your laptop to D-Link DES 1005 Ethernet Switch.

This error appears when you have either a bad cable or bad switch or NIC card on Laptop.
As you have Laptop and other devices and getting the same error , so i suspect issue with the cable.

Please use a new Straight LAN cable.

Dell 8100 ethernet will not connect off the port replicator

Let me give it a try ...

There are a few possibilities but i'll cover 2 of them :
1. There is a program that comes with your DELL that will save battery life by turning off your Network Card (LAN) I forgot what is the program name. But usually when you plug the power cable out, there will be notification at bottom right corner of your screen that told you so.

2. I don't know if your port replicator connected to power adapter (is port replicator = docking ?). The fact that your LAN connected when it's on port replicator make my first conclusion more acceptable. Since port replicator got it's own power adapter, it will just turn the LAN on.

Now if you want to check if thats the cause, just plug your notebook to it's power adapter/charger and plug your LAN Cable in. If it works than the problem is the nasty program from DELL.

If you want to disable the program just go to Startup Tab at msconfig and disable (clear the check mark) for that nasty program

Hope it helps
