I am trying to get a Thinkpad T495s and need the extended warranty to make sure it will last the entire 3 year uni.

Can share how to get the CSO to waive off the 3 years warranty?
They cant waive. At most discount to $1. Must see if the CSO is eager for incentive or not.

Trying to factory reset a T495 but I can't find any Lenovo recovery program.

Is there such a program installed in the first place, or I simply use the Reset function in Windows 10? If it the latter method, will it install the Vantage after reset or require re-download?

Unless you are savvy enough, you can try clean install.
Preferably load the drivers from Lenovo after the install.

Thanks.

Probably I will just do a reset with Windows 10 and download the Vantage and Radeon applications separately from Lenovo.

Lenovo support

Just want to share my lenovo svc support experience for those interested.

My E585 was overheating under load and sometimes BSOD, so i used online chat to contact support. I was 1st in queue and discussed with the rep, showing her screenshot of 70C temp alongside only 20% cpu usage. She said engineer will be sent and I received sms confirmation about an hour later. Appointment date was next day.

Engineer called before arriving. He was very friendly and gave frank advice. He said AMD will run hotter than intel, so may want to consider laptop fan pad if I'll be using laptop for 8+ hours a day. After warranty, I can also consider replacing the thermal grease on my own. He checked then replaced the heatsink fan assembly (easy, 4 screws and a plug), and said to call him directly if problem returns.

The entire flawless support process took less than 24 hours. I'm so glad I got their on-site 3-yr support.



Background of my overheating problem:
My 1 yr old e585 was reaching 85C while just performing backup or installing large software, sometimes resulting in BSOD. (disks temp were just 44C, 54C) A previous large windows update BSOD midway and corrupted my windows. This never happened before.

Took me a while to come to conclusion it was heat related. I ran lenovo's windows diagnostics software but fan test passed. Fortunately I found the problem after I monitored using HWMonitor. (the engineer mentioned lenovo has a temperature software for download too)

After the replacement, I ran backup and max temp immediately reduced to 75C. The old fan looked very clean and perfect, so it should be that the thermal grease lost effectiveness over time.

Tried looking couldn't find it. He may be referring to Lenovo Diagnostics Windows, under Tools tab there is a Fan Device showing current cpu temp and fan speed.

Btw also want to mention I like their diag software. Very comprehensive can check mobo, pcie, lid sensor, wifi, etc.
