13.04 Lenovo T530 Ethernet not working after suspend unless power plugged in
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 10, 2013
I've noticed a problem with my Lenovo T530 (2429-2UG). When I resume after suspend without having the power cable plugged in, the laptop does not detect that I have the network cable plugged in. As soon as I plug in the power cable it starts working fine.
However, if I unplug the power cable while the laptop is running it continues to work fine. Is it caused by some misconfigured power-saving feature or a failure to load the driver after suspend?
This particular version has an Intel PRO/1000 NIC using the e1000e driver. Any suggestions?
EDIT: I tried setting SmartPowerDown=1 and adding SUSPEND_MODULES="e1000e" to the appropriate places as mentioned in other threads. It seems to be a more common problem than I thought.

I searched for Lenovo T530 and only found two threads. One was stating the person was picking the T530 because of the Trackpad, the other was talking about the nVidia video drivers. All I want to know is if I will run into issues with this build as I don't know where to look for driver compatibilities/incompatibilities.
Before I copy-and-paste the build, I will be mostly using this as a mobile computing platform. I currently have a desktop with these specs:
AMD Athlon II x3 435
AMD 5570 HD video card
Win 7 x64
Ubuntu 12.04 (wubi)
My desktop runs mostly amateur radio applications. For these, I have found either the same program or something comparable. I play a couple of games - Diablo3, WoW, and SWTOR. Those can stay on the desktop unless I'm traveling which I do infrequently. I also publish a club newsletter using MS Publisher. For MS Publisher, all I have found in Linux is too powerful.
As I said, a laptop will be a mobile computing platform for me. S

location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2013
<p>Hello fellow Linuxians,
Back in November I installed Ubuntu side-by-side with Windows 7 on my Lenovo X-220t. I has uploaded Grub and Ubuntu seamlessly. However, I cannot make a few cool aspects of my Laptop to work, as examples:
1. Scrolling with finger on the screen (the screen does respond to tapping/clicking, however),
2. The fingerprint reader does not work
3. The screen rotate button while on tablet form, does not work.
I would greatly appreciate if you fellow Newbies or pros out there could help.

[SOLVED] UNetbootin installs failing on Lenovo Ideacentre Q180
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 17, 2012
I have a freshly unboxed Lenovo Ideacentre Q180, it ships with FreeDos so I'm trying to install Linux (XBMCbuntu ideally, but any distro will do for now).
I have used UNetbootin to make a bootable USB pen (I've tried it with isos of various distros, including a 32-bit Win7 iso) but when I boot from USB the machine goes straight from BIOS to hanging with a blinking cursor on an otherwise blank screen, or with occasional flashes of a mouse pointer, depending on the iso used.
I've installed Linux from a USB pen dozens of times with various distros on to various hardware.
The machine I'm using is easily capable of running linux:
- Intel Atom D2700 2.13GHz Processor
- 4GB RAM
- 500GB HDD
- AMD Radeon 6450 Video card
- No optical drive
Looking at the BIOS settings, nothing seems clearly wrong, I've tried various boot order settings, and hitting F12 on boot allows me to choose my USB key specifically. The SATA HDD section only has the options of 'IDE Mode' or 'Disabled
Best distro for an old Thinkpad T60 Lenovo
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 12, 2012
I have an old Thinkpad Lenova T60 that a friend of mine wants me to install linux on for her 15 year old daughter. Her daughter will be doing mostly shocial networking stuff like twitter, facebook, skype etc... I know I can install Pidgin to cover most of her social networking needs. Does Pidgin do Twitter?
What distro would you recomend I install on this laptop that is right for a linux newbie who needs something simple, fast and easy to use (hopefully highly configurable as well.
Immediately I thought of Puppy Linux but I'm sure there are others that I may not be aware of that would work well with the T60. Looking forward to your recomendations!!

Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit on Lenovo B570
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 27, 2011
I have a problem installing Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit from CD on my (new) Lenovo B570 laptop
I've set up the BIOS to boot from CD but on startup the CD sounds like it spins up but then nothing happens, screen remains blank or in some instances it has a partially corrupted blank screen
The laptop came pre-installed with Win 7 and lenovo have a 'feature' one stop recovery which I think has a backup of the Win system on a separate partition, possibly this is causing a problem
I have also tried installing Ubuntu form a USB stick with the same 64 bit .iso but same thing happens
Not sure how to progress with fixing the problem as I can't even get to a cmd prompt
