I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Lenovo design chief wants to build a retro-styled ThinkPad laptop

I used to use one of those old IBM Thinkpad laptops at around that time and I thought it was the coolest thing ever even if it was terribly slow, weighed almost a ton, had a crappy pixelated display (~2ppi it seemed) and was about a metre thick. I loved it.

My lenovo A850 cant switch off airplane mode. why?
 

A:Lenovo A850

Question: Is there is a physical wireless switch? If it's set to Off, you won't be able to turn off Airplane mode.

So set the wireless switch to On and the option to turn off Airplane mode should be available. Does this work for you?

Hey! I've been debating on wether I should buy the Lenovo Y50-70 (59427681)
or the ASUS N551JM-CN095H .
I'm looking to buy today, so I'd appreciate quick replies
Main difference is that the Lenovo has Hybrid Memory with 8 GB SSD cache, but it only has 100 mb LAN network speed, compared to Asus' 1000 mb speed.

The price of the Lenovo : 903 USD
The price of the Asus : 967 USD

Here I will give you the link so you can compare these two against eachother. It's in norwegian, but it shouldn't be a problem

Hello everyone,
One fine evening while watching a movie, my laptop stopped responding and in frustration I switched off the laptop by holding the power button long enough to turn off. Next Morning it showed a blue screen and a message to recover my windows, which I failed to do and by the afternoon this message showed up. Detection Error on HDD0 (main HDD) and hence forth I've been unable to install windows from a USB drive since ( and I suppose) it is not able to read my HDD. I do not care about my data at all, I just want my laptop up and running. If I can have the data back it will be perfect otherwise I don't mind not getting my data back. I know for a fact that my Hard disk is fine because I went into command prompt, diskpart , and list disk, and saw the status of HDD as healthy, this is after the error (detection error on HDD). SO my question is: Why this error? IS there a problem in the motherboard? Why the error shows once and then doesn't show the next time and then comes up again.
 

A:2100: Detection Error on HDD0 (Main HDD); Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga

The error might be bad sectors, but I'm not sure. if my guessing is correct, you might have to get a new drive to replace. also you need to reinstall OS

Hello, yesterday I was using my computer and I shut it off. When I came back a few hours later, the wifi couldn't connect, and, unlike most times life this, it displayed an ethernet symbol with a red 'x' opposed to the normal wireless symbol with an 'x'. My computer stopped connecting to any wireless, though works fine with ethernet.

It is a Lenovo Ideapad with Windows 8

I've tried rebooting (I'm clueless, but not that clueless), updating the OS, uninstalling and reinstalling the computer's drivers along with some more far-fetched stuff (I got desperate) such as removing the battery, waiting a few hours, and plugging it back in, but nothing has worked.

If anyone can help, that would be amazing, thanks!

This is a good review to take a look at for your consideration:

I don't know anyone who owns the or Lenovo phones in general so I can personally say much. However, reading the specs and online reviews, its a decent phone with some decent specs (Has a quad core processor inside) so it cant be too bad. A lot of reviewers say its a good phone, but I cant tell you from experience, hope this helps.

Problem began a few weeks ago with the lap turn not shutting down...would only go to hibernate... now I can't run any virus software or malware software both of which are installed on hard drive, it gives me a message that foxfire is running and I need to close it but it won't allow me to close anything...even loaded malware on external hd and tried to run it from there but the computer won't open it up...
 

A:Lenovo laptop issue

What OS (Operating System) are you using? To shutdown firefox, right click the taskbar & on the menu that pops up left click Start Task Manager & go to the Processes Tab,find firefox,highlight it & click End process. You might get a pop up asking you to confirm it,click yes & X out of Task Manager.
You need to install Malwarebytes on the harddrive. Once its installed, update it & run a (full) scan.

Hi guys,

I sold my desktop a few days ago,and was looking for a laptop to go with mainly for gaming and and recording music.

I was looking at the Z580 Lenovo laptop http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834310630

It's pretty much sold me at this point,but maybe some of you know of a better deal with more performance in that same price range of 575$... I might do 700$ but it will have to dust the Z580 for me to pay out 125 $ more.

So will the Z580 i5 GT635m be my bang for my buck,or do you guys know of a better deal ?.

Also let's say later on I wanted to upgrade the GPU,and the HDD could I do that ?. Could I upgrade to a SSD ?. etc.

Thank you all are always a huge help !.

I have a Thinkpad T61. My laptop says it's connected to the internet (wireless) but when I open up anything that uses the internet, there's no connection. For the 'activity,' it says 8 packets have been sent and 8 have been received. The number is very very slowly growing. Ethernet doesn't work either.



Also, I'm not sure if these help, but:

1. I got a virus a week ago (XP Security 2012 virus) and since then, the internet hasn't worked.

2. The icon for wireless isn't showing in the bottom right of the blue toolbar at the bottom of my screen.



Any ideas? Please help.
 

A:Lenovo T61 no network access -- says Internet is connected but no connection

First suggestion; delete the wireless show in View Network Connections
and wire a direct connection from the system-->router.

Begin there to diagnose / document what is occuring.

a) please document
Os System(xp,vista,windows), edition(basic,home,pro,...) and SP level
Your ISP
Your wiring layout
your router make & model number
the browser / version you are using
and name the firewall that is active
the name/version of your antivirus program

b) if you are on Vista or Win/7

google for "disable ipv6"
apply the FixIt for your system (ie disable all)
then reboot
c) when the system fails to connect do this:

start->run->cmd
enter IPCONFIG /all >myTCP.txt
the come back here and attach the myTCP.txt file to your follow-up

Hey everyone,

I've been considering getting a Lenovo Thinkapd X120e to replace my old laptop. Need a lightweight laptop with good battery life for my classes. After looking over a couple reviews, I noted a sizable difference in what was reported for the laptop's temperatures. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the X120e getting "too hot"?

FYI: I won't be stressing the laptop much, mostly note-taking using Word or PowerPoint. Also some web surfing, video watching, or very light gaming if the class is particularly dull.

Specs: Planning on upgrading to the 1.6 GHz E-350, 320 GB 7200 rpm HDD, 4 GB of DDR3-1333, and 6-cell battery. Laptop comes with Windows 7 Pro, and I plan to add Ubuntu to it.

Any comments would be great, thanks!
 

A:Lenovo Thinkpad X120e temperatures

Excellent choice in a Netbook especially with what you want to do; your upgrades are right on. I personally don't have one (but am leaning towards purchasing one in early 2012) but I am also a member of Notebookreview.com (NBR) and there are many people there who own this system. Check out the Lenovo forum at NBR.

Also, check out TechSpot's own reviews of laptops/netbooks. We give it high marks as well and after doing my own research I have found Lenovo has the best build with the E-350.

A:Lenovo G560 battery charges but laptop won't run on it

The battery contacts could be corroded by the spilled water. It takes time for this corrosion to develop so that's why the time that the laptop worked. The water could have affected other internal circuits too over time. The laptop needs to be opened up and inspected

A:Lenovo problems

Two things: Is it HP or Lenovo?

Second, those "domed" capacitors sounds like they are bad capacitors and if so are most likely leading to your issues. Now they can be replaced but it takes working knowledge on how to do it let alone finding the capacitors in the first place. You might find someone who will do it for you but the $ might not be worth it.

First thing I would test is the hard drive, but as you cannot get into the Bios to change the boot order you will have to remove the drive and link it up to a desktop PC using a "Laptop Hard Drive Adapter". Then you can download the diagnostics for Windows from the manufacturers site listed below.

Have you tried to boot from the OS disc? Do you have Recovery Discs?

A:Help resolving USB problem with Lenovo 3000 N100?

If there is a downloadable Windows based bios flashing utility from Lenovo for your model laptop you should be able to use it to flash the bios without much trouble, regardless of the Windows version installed. Don't worry about having no battery installed. Bios flashing should never be done on battery power alone. If the laptop can boot from the CD/DVD you could flash the bios using a CD/DVD image. You will also have an option to back up the current bios to a file. If the bios flashing fails, the laptop may be rendered useless, so no recovery can be attempted

Hello
This is my first post here so please be kind!

The keyboard of my Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop has developed a fault. It uses XP Pro

A few keys have started to map to the wrong letters

't' is displayed as 'tb'
'y' as 'yn'
'b' as 'tb' and
'n' as 'yn'

This is both in lower and upper case and affects all software including at the Dos prompt. All the other letters are OK

Also,

'Backspace' deletes 1 character but leaves the cursor in its original position
'Space' does nothing at all unless it is held down and then I get repeated spaces with no carriage return! This is also the same effect when holding down the Backspace.

Any ideas on what is wrong and how I can get back to the original correct mappings?

Thanks

Steve

I am presently researching to purchase a laptop for my wife at Christmas who is a teacher thus she will need to access the internet, do Office work, grading, emails, research, etc., but no gaming at all.

Will be running 7 64 OS, with 4 gigs of RAM, and hopefully a 7200 rpm hd. Leaning towards the i5 processor.

The Thinkpad Edge is part of Lenovo's excellent T Series but somewhat less expensive. Looking at current configurations it seems it will deliver what I am looking for but I know nothing of the quality build.

Would love to hear back from people who have used this series and/or from ITs who repair laptops for their insights.

Thanks!

Hello everyone, my name is Atai and I have a question about my netbook. Last year i bought Lenovo S 10-2 and was happy with it but recently it broke down and wouldn't start. I have a warranty and would like to send it to be repared.

I have credit card information, personal e mail exchanges as well as family photos on the computer however and would rather repairmen couldn't go through my content.

My friend took out the hard disk but I remember that Windows 7 or One Key Recovery program was on separate drive that also contains personal information.

Does S 10-2 have one 160 GB hard disk that contains 2 partitions (one for storage and other for Windows 7 and OKR) or does it have one 160 GB hard disk + separate storage medium for Windows 7?

In other words, am I removing all personal content from the netbook by taking out the 160 GB hard disk?

Thanks for your help,

Atai
 

A:Storage on Lenovo S10-2 netbook

It has a single Western Digital 160GB notebook hard drive, that may contain more than one partition. Usually there is a Windows partition and a separate system recovery partition. You can remove this hard drive, send the net-book in for service and reinstall the hard drive when you get the net-book back, if the drive itself was not the problem and the net-book should boot normally with all your files intact

A:Lenovo video driver serious trouble

Always helpful to state your OS first.

You definitely need to install drivers for the Base system Devices. Did you get a driver CD with your notebook or do you have a restore partition? if so go to device manager and click on the yelow item and right mouse on it and select: "Update driver" let it search for the driver, may take quite long. If successful with thiose two then try the unkown and then re-install your video driver, making sure you have the correct version, are you positive it is Mobile Intel 4 series express family?

A:Many problems with Lenovo laptop 3000 G430

code 10 problems...

Hi Code 10 errors are linked to a driver that needs updating. You say when you look at 'dxdiag' screen the display is twisted, but that could well be part of the same problem. If you can see what you are doing, go into device manager, look for the entries that have a yellow triangle next to them. Right-click on each one, and choose 'update driver'. As long as you are connected to the net, you should get the driver updated. You probably will need to reboot your PC to have the new driver be effective. Hope that helps.

Probably nothing wrong with Windows, something about the BIOS has gotten confused, seen this on Fujitsu's.

Disconnect the power, remove the battery. Put them back in, try and boot with no peripherals connected, it should be OK.

I have an R61i (7650-9LU) 15.4" with no LCD or status indicators. Works fine with external display. Only things that work on the lid are the 'think light' and the green 'wireless' led. I assumed the inverter to be bad as there was no output voltage to the backlight. Replaced it, no dice. What now?
 

A:Lenovo R61i LCD Dark/no status indicators

Sorry. Inverter is the usual cause. Did you install it yourself from an eBay purchase? A lot of those sold are not new, and used ones look new.
Who disassembled your screen to do the work?
We assume you also checked the ribbon cable carefully for cracks and crimps... as that would be the next most likely cause. If you did it yourself, inspect the cables for both under a bright light designed for that work.
Check all those sockets carefully, as a couple of them come loose.
Luckily it is new enough to have parts available.
Lenovo service would replace the system board under warranty... How hold is your R61?

i had dropped my computer a couple days ago and the screen was slightly darker. i figured it was either the inverter or the bulb. so i disassembled the screen, checked the bulb and it didnt seem bad, and put it back together to test it .now only a small strip at the bottom of the screen has normal lighting. could it be those little pieces of plastic at the back of the LCD? possibly something was knocked loose originally and since i tried to put it back together, i might have partially fixed the problem?
 

A:Part of the screen is dark. Lenovo R61i

scratch that part about the light part. i found two screws that i forgot to put in. but still. it seemed like that brighter part was just right for, i.e. , like is was when it was working better. though, the screen is still very dark. would that be the inverter? i mean ive had a monitor with a bad inverter, but it was completely black. maybe thats just the worse case

Hello,

after completing the Automatic Updates the sound on Lenovo T61 XPSP3 "disappeared". The "Sounds and Audio Devices" show no audio device present.

The Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus has a Yellow "!".

Tried the following:

1. installed KB888111 obtained from MS hotfix.
2. Tried to install the Soundmax audio driver package (7KA114WW) obtained from lenovo support website and got the following message:

"Audio Driver Installation Failed"
3. After that Soundmax is not installed at all.

I've checked different forums and web-sites and nothing worked.

Installed Driver Detective which pushed the same 7KA114WW from Lenovo as solution for the Audio Device on High definition Bus.

I can't backup the updates using System Restore (tried few different check points) as it is not find any changes.

Any suggestions or help?

Please, any ideas before restoring the system to the factory setiings?

A:Nothing but problems with Lenovo n100 3000

You should go to the Lenovo Driver Matrix, to download and install all drivers listed, using the text explanations exactly.
When done properly, your Lenovo 0768-A49 will work just fine.
As a shortcut, you can install the Systems update 3.14 by your model:
· H100
· J100
· J105
· J110
· J115
· J200
· J200p
· J205
· K100
· Q100
· S200
· S205
. C200
· N100
· N200
· V100
· V200
· Y100
Or you can connect to the Lenovo site and let their system tell you what you need and install it for you.
Basically, you need the Chipset most importantly, being sure your BIOS is up to date.
The Matrix will show you exactly what you need... it can be as many as 35 download installs, depending on your exact model.
Or you can buy the Lenovo WXP Professional disk set by telephone for less than $50 including shipping.

First, welcome to TechSpot, good to have you here. I?m somewhat new myself, so I?m still figuring things out. Now, I know this may be elementary for you, but here?s a link to the Windows Vista networking help page: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/88ea056e-664a-4c3d-b977-13f79cb4dedb1033.mspx.

I?m not terribly familiar with the T61 (worked mostly with 43s). Does it have a physical WiFi on/off switch? Sometimes those can be the culprits.

But when i tested the laptop's bluetooth with my motorola phone (w/ my phone's bluetooth activated) my laptop can't detect my phone, i tried to detect my phone using the bluetooth wizard.

2. Do i still need to install a driver or something?
3. Do i still need to plug a bluetooth device?

As i understood it, the y410 is already bluetooth capable.

A:Upgrading Lenovo T61

You didn't mention your Lenovo Type number, but in general, Lenovo motherboards do not accept PC6400 modules unless they were designed to and ship that way. There are few flexibilities in the range that Lenovo boards will accept. It depends a lot on the quality and module designe of the pc6400 chips, and whether you are using VISTA, WXP, or WXP 64
How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB, but my T-64 recognises 4 GB.. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at http://www.crucial.com or at the www.lenovo.com site for your type number.

So I was on http://www.newegg.com today and I was looking into buying a tablet PC for myself.

I looked at HP, Fujitsu, and Lenovo (Formerly IBM).
I remembered seeing that the new Lenovo tablet PCs have wacom based pens and tablet features. I was pleasantly suprised because as everyone knows, Wacom is renound for all tablet like things for artists or anyone else who wants a pen-top interface.

But on newegg it doesn't specify which Lenovo computers have the wacom based tablets...

My question, is are all the ThinkPad X Series X61t ones wacom based? Or only some of them? I was wondering if anyone knew. (Newegg and other places won't seem to tell me...)
(I was looking specifically at the ThinkPad X Series X61t (776796U) model, as it has a higher resolution screen.)

Okay, this a fairly new one as I cannot find a single documented instance of this on the entire internet.....

Hardware - T60 thinkpad
OS - WinXP
512MB RAM
Accessories - Docking station

I've deployed about a hundred of these things and this is the first time I've seen this message.....(not verbatim)

"The undocking sequence cannot continue because the print spool service needs to be stopped."

???????

Fair enough, but I can't tell my user to keep going into the computer management services to turn the service on and off. My boss would kill me.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? My final resort would be to re-image the thing (as also suggested by IBM themselves). The problem is that would be a major hassle as this guy is an attorney and always on the run.

Any and all suggestions will be entertained....even the ones involving alchemy.

I have a Lenovo T60 with Intel Express Chipset. I am pretty sure that that is integrated, but am I right? I was looking to upgrade the video card to something better. You have the option to have a better ATI card when you purchase the T60, and in the BIOS there is an option to tell the system to use an non-integrated card (I'm not sure what that does, whether it uses a card in a dock or inside the computer). So, is it possible to upgrade graphics in this laptop?
 

A:Lenovo T60 Video Upgrade

The internal video is integrated and you'd have to replace the motheroard to get a different one.

You can indeed use a PCI-E video card in a dock.

My daughter is buying a Lenovo T60 with Core2Duo 1.66 processor. I am going to add a memory upgrade (among other things), but am confused about the configuration of the RAM. All the documentation I have found so far says that the max RAM for this model is 3GB. That's not a problem, as I want to install two 1GB sticks of DDR2 667.

My question is- the recommended config for three gigs is: 1x2048 DDR2 667, and 1x2048 DDR2 533. ???? Do any of you know if installing two 1024 DDR2 667's is going to work? Cause a problem? Can't find any literature directly related to what I want to do.

Oh-- along the same lines- anyone familiar with Mushkin memory? Have never used it, nor do I know anyone that has. Reliable?

Thanks to all-:knock: :suspiciou

had the recommended RAM config wrong- it's correct now.

I'm desperate for a solution because I have exhausted all more likely resources for solutions to my problem. My problem is that the option to burn factory reinstall discs have been removed. In the windows 7 version of this laptop, One Key Recovery provided this option. For win 7 laptops, this allowed people to reinstall the OEM OS on their msata SSD. Now that option is not there. I've burned a system image disc set, I burned a bootable system repair disc. I created a recovery flash drive on a usb stick. Neither of these windows 8 options allowed me to recover to a new drive on the same laptop. I really really hope someone can help me. This is ridiculous.

Hello philetus now this begs the question what is on that USB stick? If it some form of Windows 7 media I am wondering how you managed to get it on a stick and also have you updated the USB drivers.

I am also concerned that you have been into the BIOS and changed it around like that not that I am any great expert on what should be changed, but I do know I had to change a few of the EUFI settings on my Asus ROG to get it to boot 7 which included changing the BIOS to the latest version before I could install 7 drivers.

recently i bought a lenovo edge 15 with 8gb of ram and a nvidia 840m.

Almost every game is hitching, i play skyrim and fallout 3 which are known to be problematic, but even dragon age origin which should be finehas this problem, basically the frame drops keeps stable then it drops and skips.

I don't how to stop it, no matter the setting this keeps happening

please help.
 

A:hitching and skipping frames problem on lenovo edge 15

so pretty much every game even on low settings?

Have you checked for running background programs and scanners? Disable what you don't need running.
Does your antivirus have a game mode you can enable?
Defrag and remove the unwanted clutter programs. The more RAM and CPU the game gets to use the smoother it runs.

I can't find a review of that configuration, only ones I see are the integrated cheaper version.
the 840M is listed as mid range, and tests about 33fps on skyrim on high/med detail.
so, while it should play smooth-ish, it can also depend on the other system components. The i7 should handle it, the GPU might be fine, even 8 gigs of ram, (getting low for games but still OK).

Honestly, tossing good hardware into a standard system doesn't mean it will play higher end games well.
Many factors to consider for gaming on a laptop, best to find one built specifically for gaming. (sadly those are often well over $1,000 usd)

A:Need to factory restore Lenovo ThinkPad S3 Yoga 14"?

If you're logged in click on the Start button and type "Refresh" (w/o the quotes). One of the "finds" should be "Remove everything and reinstall Windows"; click on that.

If you can't log in check your documentation. If it doesn't have that little "Lenovo" or "OneKey Rescue System" button beside the regular power button then there must be some key or key combination you need to press upon power on.

Can't boot pc now a black screen with some copyright stuff on it and DHCP spins for a bit and it says Reboot and Select proper boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key Was using the recovery discs a bad idea because Used Lenovo windows 8 recovery disc to try and install Windows 8. Can't boot pc now it seemed to have started erasing things and then failed part way through Can I even get back to Vista by doing like loading an old system restore point Update I tried putting in the Windows recovery discs again and got no recognition at all the same with the Windows disc I found I know So I revealed the issue to my dad and he said that since our computer is years old he had been looking online and found a refurbished computer We decided to get a new computer basically nbsp

A:Used Lenovo windows 8 recovery disc to try and install Windows 8. Can't boot pc now

I'm surprised that the Lenovo Recovery didn't notice the incorrect hardware and quit immediately. But since it apparently did wipe something out before failing you will probably have to use the proper Vista recovery DVDs (assuming you have them or can still buy them from Gateway) to get going again.

If Windows 8.1 is wanted you can probably still buy a Installation DVD. Has any check been made to assure that the PC will run Windows 8 or 8.1?

Hello,
I am having trouble getting the built-in wireless adapter on this laptop to get connected to the internet. I have installed the following driver:
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/migr-73611
but have had no luck. there are no available wireless connections I can connect to.
I have also tried to use USB wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN725N to connect to internet. It is able to find available connections but when it tries to connect it says unable to connect and give options to troubleshoot. Once troubleshoot is complete it says to investigate router or access point issues. I have reset the router many times. Other devices are working fine with the internet just not this laptop.
I am running windows 7 64Bit.
Please help.
Thanks
 

A:Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Can you connect the laptop to the router using a cable at all ?

using just the laptop wireless adapter
unlikely to be this as it is reporting NO networks available - but check anyway please
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?

Hi,
I've recently run into a problem with my Lenovo ideaPad y510p where I pass the splash screen and then my screen just goes to black. I can't get it running off of a flash drive with Windows 8 in it (the logo appears and the little loading circle spins but after 30 minutes of waiting it doesn't boot). I've also tried using a drive with ubuntu on it but every time I try to get that to work it seems that the download I have is messed up. If anyone has any suggestions I will try them out.
Thank you on advance.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Ultrabook with Windows 8, and a little while back the sound just stopped working. It's not the speakers - it still makes sounds when being switched on/off etc, it's just when trying to play music/videos/games that it doesn't work. I've read somewhere that one of the endless updates this thing subjects you to had a glitch that caused similar issues for other people, but I haven't been able to fix it. Any of you amazing people got any advice? Thanks in advance!

After several minutes into the update I got the message that the ISD driver must be uninstalled! Why it couldn't tell me that before when checking my system for the update is a MS glitch I think. I stopped the update.
 
This driver is for the touch screen in tablet mode I think so will that facility not work in Win 10 or will there be a Win 10 ISD driver?
 
I cannot find out from the Lenovo support sites but from Googling 'Win 10 update for ISD driver' I got the Lenovo page link http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384 which I don't understand.
 
Can anyone please enlighten me on this matter - thanks.
