X1 Carbon 2ed gen. Battery invisible


i have a X1 2ed gen. Just purchased a new battery, after plugin it is not visible for Windows 10.

Is there any place in the bios to check if it is visible there ? 

Any reset action should be done after the replacment? 


Once i plugin the old one, it is visib,e again, i had to change it as it had a short duration ( 1 h ), so i thought it is time to replace it.



Yoga Book: How to set default downloads to SD card

Hi All,

How can I set the default downloads to go automatically to the SD card? in my Yoga Book. For example if downloading from email, etc.


Why is my WLAN card slot narrower than my WWAN card slot (PCIe mini)?

Hello All,


I’m looking under the hood of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon, and I’m trying to identify the PCIe slots.  In particular, the following page states that I should have 2 PCI Express Mini slots:  https://support.lenovo.com/au/en/solutions/pd027202


Now I see the WLAN card and the WWAN card, and my natural assumption is that these are both in PCIe ports, but on closer inspection I see that the WLAN card’s slot is only 19mm wide, whereas the WWAN card is the standard 26mm width of normal PCIe Mini ports.


This raises some questions:

  1. Is the WLAN connected to a proprietary slot, or is this just a different type of PCIe standard?

  2. If the WLAN is connected to a proprietary slot, where is my second PCIe slot?


Any help would greatly be appreciated.

yoga 910 plugged in nor charging

I’ve plugged recently plugged my laptop charger into the laptop the icon read 30% power and stated that the computer was plugged in and not charging. I disconnected the power promptly but the icon still showed that that it was plugged in and not charging. The charging light was also shown to be on but the charger was not plugged in. I restared my computer to try and fix the glitch but there was no change. I also tried turning it off and plugging it in, there was a spark sound and burnt smell coming out of the charger and the charging port. I have no idea what to do. please help!
