LENOVOX X200 TABLET LOST FUNCTIONALITY AFTER UPDATED TO WINDOWS 7

Hello to all.

I have a problem with my X200 tablet  P/N 7449-FWG which after upgraded to windows 7 does not detect the following devices:

- Mobile Broadband

- Wireless USB

- Intel WI Max

- GPS receiver

All the above where installed and functioning when the machine shipped to me last August running Vista Pro 64-bit

 
There is another change symptom.

When it worked under Vista, the machine remembered the state of wireless devices after hibernation/reboot. Now, the machine boots with bluetooth always off, and i must go to FN-F5 (Wireless Radio Menu)  to activate it.


All the rest seem to work perfectly.

Any help would be appreciated, because i tried anything I could think of to resolve the problem.
I have updated all drivers available, both automatically and manually.

Regards

Are you saying that it doesn't detect them at all.... or that it detects them as "unkown devices".
A screen shot of your Device Manager window would be helpful

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

No, not really... Windows 7 is showing the devices as installed and working.  What appears to be happening is that the  Lenovo connection utility is not working.
I'd be willing to bet that if you just ignore the Lenovo utility and just used the stuff that comes with Win7, that everything would work.

I am afraid, i dont know any Windows 7 Application to switch mobile broadband on or off.. furhermore, i get this message when i try to install the Thinkvantage GPS application.
According to the attached hardware manual, the machine comes equipped with Integrated Mobile Broadband (Gobi 2000 3G with GPS) FRU 60Y3183

Traces of this device is found in the registry, as shown in the followin picture

The strange is that no-one other owner of this machine complaines about this malfunction

Yes, I do see your point... but using the Mobile broadband as an example.  Does this device exists under the "modem" section of the device manager?

Finally I opened the case, took off and plugged in again  the two cards and the machine worked fine.
