Hi,

Check in BIOS that the USB 3.0 mode has not been disabled.

Check that it is either set to enabled or auto.

To enter BIOS do the following:

Restart the computer. When the ThinkPad logo is displayed, press F1. The ThinkPad Setup program starts

When in BIOS go to Config > USB > USB 3.0 mode

Save your changes (if you have to enable) and then restart the laptop.

Here’s a link to the user guide for the laptop. Go to p.105 to view the USB 3.0 options in BIOS.
