Y580 LCD Replacement - What screens will work?

Q: Y580 LCD Replacement - What screens will work?

I'm replacing the screen on my Y580 and I was wondering which LCDs I can use. I used the part number N156HGE-LA1 to search for new screens, but I found out that screen model is used in other laptops besides Y580 (such as HPs). That made me doubt whether it would work in my laptop or not. So then I tried another number from the screen: 209945U That one seems to be exclusive to the Y580. I found that screen for sale, but it's more expensive. Will the N156HGE-LA1 screen work for me even though Amazon is saying it's for a different laptop, or will I have to use the 209945U screen instead? Also, is there a certain brand someone could direct me to which makes this screen and you know is good quality? Thanks so much. - Brian

Preferred Solution: Y580 LCD Replacement - What screens will work?

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.)

I have a Y580 with a failing mSATA (SAMSUNG MZMPC032HBCD 000L1) as included in the orginal purchase from Lenovo's website.  I need a list of suitable replacements that will work in the same cache enabled state as the original mSATA.  I know that the Y580 BIOS is finicky about what brand/device is used and want to purchase something that will work with Intels Rapid Storage Technology for fast performance.  I have been looking at the Kingston MS200 120GB mSATA and know it will fit, but dont know if it will properly boot for fast caching.  Please advise on mSATA devices known to work properly.  Thank you very much.

A:Solved: blue screens black screens green screens

The issues sound a bit like a hardware failure, the blue STOP screen could be hardware or software.

The Black screen sounds like the PC has died, but the power supply continues to run. This could well be hardware.

Both issues could be something like overheating of the CPU (are all fans running, is the CPU fan dust clogged - shouldnt be if it's "new")?

If it's "new" and under warranty, take it back.

It would have helped to know if it was a desktop or laptop though.

Hi,
I'm trying to fix some problems with my Windows Vista Repair Disc. However, none of the menus will stay up for more than 1 or 2 seconds at a time. When the Disc repair starts, it shows the repair starting and then screen goes black.

Same thing happens with any shorcut I type (F8, F2, F12, etc...) Even when I try to start in Safe Mode or get to the BIOS screen, I get the screen for 2 seconds max and all goes black (or moves onto the next step to eventually turn black altogether)

I cannot run the Vista repair disc without seeing what is going on. Any ideas on how I can make the screen last longer???

I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop. It would fail memory tests. I replaced the memory still got memtest errors, the CPU is an SL6VU. I then got replacement cpus when I put a faster cpu 2.6 ghz SL6VV instead of 2.4. It works but the bios stops and warns that it can't identify the CPU, If you hit F1 the system continues to boot and seems to work fine. But when I get the exact cpu model H4316 SL6VU @2.4 ghz it will not boot at all (and I got 2 of them from used working systems), if I put the original CPU back in (that fails memtest) it will boot up.
Why do the identical CPU's not seem to work.

I bought some replacement RAM yesterday being assured that it would work on my laptop I'll post all details at the end I just installed the new RAM booted up and the RAM wasn't recognized I tried Windows Startup Repair Tool a few time but that didn't load and neither obviously did quot Boot Windows normally quot I've now put the old RAM back in and booted up so I work Replacement RAM doesn't could get some answers before I try again What's my next step here Replacement RAM doesn't work in troubleshooting Memtest Use one old RAM stick and one new The only difference I can see between the two is the speed vs but I was assured that this was backwards compatible I've checked my BIOS and I don't have any options for memory management probably related to SONY not wanting people to overclock so I don't know how I could solve this if there was for example a difference in voltages between the two RAMs I would really appreciate some advice on this Cheers Details Windows Home Premium x SONY VAIO VPCEB S E Old RAM Kingston x GB Model SNY D S DR G From CPU-Z Quote Memory Type DDR Memory Size GBytes Channels Dual Symmetric Memory Frequency MHz CAS Replacement RAM doesn't work latency CL RAS to CAS delay tRCD RAS Precharge tRP Cycle Time tRAS Row Refresh Cycle Time tRFC Command Rate CR T MCHBAR I O Base address x FED MCHBAR I O Size New RAM Corsair ValueSelect x GB Model CMSO GX M A C From Corsair site Quote Memory Configuration Dual Channel Memory Type DDR Package Memory Format SODIMM Package Memory Pin Memory Size GB Kit x GB SPD Latency - - - SPD Speed MHz SPD Voltage Speed Rating PC - MHz Tested Latency - - - Tested Speed Mhz Tested Voltage

A:Replacement RAM doesn't work

As near as I can tell from searching the web, the RAM sticks use the same voltage, and the lappy is OK to use up to 8 GB of memory.

The only things that I can think of are:

1. The laptop just doesn't like that Corsair memory for some reason.
2. The laptop is expecting RAM with tighter timings. The Kingston RAM runs at 1066 MHz at 7-7-7-20. The Corsair RAM may not be able to boot at those timings for that speed, therefore it goes unrecognized by the computer.

#2 is a long-shot, but it's plausible, and it's really the only reason that I can think of.

There really isn't a lot you can do to test this. You could try one stick at a time of the new RAM and see if it boots, just in case one stick is faulty and is causing a failure of both sticks. But if the RAM isn't recognized, there isn't much you can do, seeing how you have limited BIOS options.

Is it possible to get your money back, or trade for a different set of RAM sticks?

VLC and Chrome, among other programs, work fine in my virtual machine when I use extended screens (I use 3 screens). VLC and Chrome can not maintain an image on my host when I use an extended screen. Since, I know it is possible for those programs to use the extended screens I'm guessing there must be a setting on my host machine that is causing the problem, but I have no idea about what setting needs to be changed.

It seems significant to me that everything worked fine until I reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium on my Host (HP Envy Laptop). I reinstalled the same software, but there have been updates to software, so I'm thinking some software update must have made the change. The VM image was saved so I simply moved the file back onto the host so that image didn't change.

I use MS Security Essentials.

Would appreciate help.

OK, I have read you last thread and sounds like you made some progress.

Lets see the details of the Blue Screen, follow this guide to attach it to your next post.


First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in Windows Explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.
Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).
NOTE To zip up a file in Windows (all versions). Right-click the file or folder, click on Send To, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder and save it to your desktop.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Desktop in the left column so you can see the zip file. In the left column click on C: > Windows > Minidump and then drag & drop any additional .dmp files into the zip folder.

&#8226; Below the Message Box click on Go Advanced. Then scroll down until you see a button, Manage Attachments. Click on that and a new window opens.
&#8226; Click on the Browse button, find the zip folder you made earlier and doubleclick on it.
&#8226; Now click on the Upload button. When done, click on the Close this window button at the bottom of the page.
&#8226; Enter your message-text in the message box, then click on Submit Message/Reply.Click to expand...

Hello

To be honest I doubt that it will work because the specifications are different.
In your case I wouldn?t try it, in worst case you destroy the computer.

It would be better if you buy a new battery with the exact specifications. Authorized service provider in your country can make you an offer for this.

I replaced a Netgear router with a similar Netgear router, but the LAN is no longer working.

The old Netgear router would drop internet, but LAN would work. Replaced it, the new Netgear router works fine with the internet (cable modem), but the LAN with two computers will not work. The desktop with Windows XP, and a laptop with Windows 7. After runing network setups on both computers several times, I have been unable to reestablish the LAN, however internet access via the router is working.

Reinstalled the old router and the LAN works fine, allowing file and printer sharing.

Old router is a Netgear WGR614v2, new router is a Netgear WNR2000

Any ideas on how to reconfigure the router/computers to get the LAN working again with new router. Netgear Tech support will not help, without a fee that costs more than the router, because it is a LAN file and printer sharing problem.

Hi, so this problem only came in recently but after I try to update windows 10 on my Y580 and tried to power it up the system would not boot. It seems the laptop is running and the keyboard lights are on but the screen itself remains off or black. The first time it has happen I have been able to use the "remove battery" method to where I remove it and re-insert it back in, this has work the first time when I had this issue but when I had to update windows 10 again the issue returned and I have tried the "remove battery" method but to no avail. I was hoping to get some clarity with this issue, thank you.

Hi Y580 Fan Malfunction all first post here so bear with me nbsp I've had this Y for a few years now and it's been functioning rather nicely throughout just with consistently Y580 Fan Malfunction high temperatures A few days ago the performance Y580 Fan Malfunction abruptly dropped considerably and so I checked my temperatures They were absolutely ridiculous even for what this thing averages I was doing around degrees on the GPU and it was eternally downclocking to MHz nbsp I thought it was just a cooling issue at first and tried everything but then when playing around in Energy Management I noticed something really strange If I hit the dust removal button the fan wouldn't change in sound at all In fact I could barely hear the fan I opened up the back cover and inspected the fan While it was running it was running at a ridiculously low speed and would not speed up no matter what I was doing nbsp This is a serious issue have any of you encountered this before Anyone have good suggestions for how I should go about dealing with this nbsp nbsp

A:Y580 Fan Malfunction

Hi ThunderBIrd2678 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Manual cleaning using compressed air can , checking the gears itself if there are strands slowing it down and reapplying thermal paste ensuring contacts are good as initial step.
 
Uninstalling and reinstalling the energy manager tool from the support site  under power management can help.
 
Since fan system is still mechanical in nature, as wear and tear may now be affecting its performance, you may decide on replacing it if you have neccessary tools and skills using the manual (page 58) as guide.
Thermal module with fan in item 11 page 78 FRU number as compared the parts look up for the part number .
 
Hope this helps answering your query.

Y580, Win10 I just purchased a used Y580 cheap because it has non-functional USB 3.0 ports. The USB 2.0 port works fine.When I plug in a USB cable, it doesn't register anything, as if there's no power to the ports. Which leads me to believe it's not a driver issue...but I could be wrong about that. My thought was that the controller on the motherboard might be bad, but I don't know much about laptops, honestly. I'm more of a desktop guy when it comes to hardware. I'm not even sure if the USB controller is onboard or a separate board in the laptop. Any ideas on how to fix this, or am I just out of luck? Thanks. - Brian

Hello, As stated in the title, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad y580. I purchased it approximately three-and-a-half years ago, and only now is it really beginning to chug durings its processes. Point is, I want it to last perhaps another half year or so while I finish saving up for another computer. As a gamer, I'm fine with the limitations of the GPU, but sometimes my laptop legitimately has issues processing stuff, such as loading Google Chrome properly. I know enough about Windows to clean out viral matter and uninstall programs that I don't use that are running in the back. But does anyone have any tips or tricks to make this hunk of junk last maybe six more months before it becomes unusable?TL;DR I need to make my laptop run at least a reasonably sub-average to average level for six more months. Any tips are appreciated.

I currently have a Lenovo Y580 Laptop computer with a dvd burner optical drive. I am wanting a blu ray burner where I can watch iblu-ray movies, and occasionally burn files to a Blu ray disk. I have found this drive, but I'm not sure whether it is compatible. It appears there are several different sizes for optical drives. Any idea whether this will physically fit in my laptop? Thanks for your assistance.

A:Blu Ray Burner for Lenovo Y580 Laptop

Unless it is designed for that machine, and it states that it will work, I doubt very much that you can use it. Laptops, in particular, are very proprietary in hardware, and though some few standard pieces may be interchangeable, for the most part, even the connections for optical drives are often the company's own. You'll need to get a drive from the manufacturer or one that they say will work. (Or advice from someone who has actually gotten one to fit.)

Alternatively, you could look into an external case with a USB connection for a BluRay drive. Since most people rarely use them, except for data storage (double-sided ones can hold 50 GB's which makes a great storage medium) or videos, and they are expensive, it may be best to buy just one that can be used on all machines and keep for future ones. I have found no problems with speed playing BluRay over a USB 2.0 connection (In the worst case, the contents could be copied to your hard drive before playing, anyway, though I have never had to do that). And, of course, since a drive that supports all optical media for both reading and burning is only slightly more expensive than those that support fewer types, it is worth the money to get a good drive. Just another idea...............

Does anyone actually know if the "Dust Removal" in the energy management program actually works to remove dust from the laptop? I'm a bit reluctant to open up and dissect my laptop to check for any dust accumulation at this point, since everything has been running fine.This question came to mind since I saw that the filter at the bottom of my laptop was kinda caked in fine dust - wondered if the same was inside my laptop. I got the laptop in December 2012.

A:Dust removal in Ideapad Y580

hi marshchen,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
That application can only minimized collection of dust in the Exhaust system of your Laptop.
    Since the process of the vents is to get air fom the outside to pass through the heatsink . Dust collection cannot really be avoided.
    
   One symptom of a fan and vent dust is that when the vents blow very hot and minimal air and the laptop is heating up more than usual.
 
A yearly cleaning would be ok.
  You can refer to the Maintenance Manual of this model on how to open the cover and get to the heat sink.
You might also want to refresh and apply new Thermal paste to the Heat sink.
 
Just be careful on the plastic parts and also wear an anti static starp. If you're not comfortable doing this, You can opt to have a repair center do this.
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver

A:Cannot enable wifi using Fn and F5 keys - Y580

Finally fixed it... 1. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Lenovo Energy management Software - No difference. 2. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the Wireless LAN - No difference. 3. I noticed that the OneKey Recovery button wasn't working, so I decided to uninstall and reinstall the OneKey Recovery software...it worked!  4. In Task Manager I can now see that utility.exe is running as below:  Now I have no idea why the OneKey Recovery software would affect the Lenovo Wireless Device Settings?  But I hope this might help someone else! All the best, Dave.

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

AFAIK, you have the latest BIOS for your system.
Here's a link to it: BIOS Update for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Y480, Y580

Out of 17 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).





Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): [S] DuplexSecure - FAQ [/S] Link broken as of 21 Jul 2012
New link (15 Aug 2012): DuplexSecure - Downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).
Alternate link: Disk-Tools.com
Manual procedure here: Registry and SPTD problems | DAEMON Pro Help



Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

LhdX64.sys Mon Jan 11 10:06:58 2010 (4B4B3E92)
Lenovo HD Disk Driver
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=LhdX64.sys

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web.
If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics. Let us know the results and we can move on from there.

A:Y580 - How to upgrade Wireless Driver

Hi Manoj77 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Ideapad Y580 is not listed compatible to Windows 10 upgrade .
 
After upgrading to Windows 10, some software or hardware functions of your computer might be unavailable. In addition, some software issues might occur. Installing the latest Windows updates, device drivers, and application updates may fix these issues.
 
Would device manager detect unknown device for the WLAN card?
Same reason why Support website don't offer W10 drivers as  same with intel.
 
You may have to either fo back to the original OS or wait for Intel Windows 10 driver if native Windows internal drivers will not work.  .
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

A:Ideapad Y580 sound cutting out

One suggestion..... have you tried uninstalling the audio driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy of the driver.  If the previous driver installation was faulty, installing the latest driver may have not corrected the problem.

This may sound like an odd request, but is there a way to disable the touchpad buttons from moving the mouse, but still have them work when they're pressed? Here's what happens...I'm using the touchpad and I hit the left button and it moves my mouse pointer a little.  But I don't want it to move. I just want to press the button without my touching it causing the pointer to move a little. It really screws with some things I do.
 
Is there any solution to this? If not, can I buy a completely different touchpad?
 
Thanks

I recently purchased a Y used It had USB ports not working USB I'm assuming and the screen had Y580 - White of Death?

A:BSOD with both GPUs on Lenovo Y580

Hi David
 
Since you are familiar with computers, i will cut the crap and go directly to the troubleshooting. Please follow the below steps.
 
1. First uninstall both "Intel" and "Nvidia" drivers completely from the system. Laptops require tweaked drivers  specifically created for them rather than generic ones. If the Nividia adapter is disabled via BIOS, please enable it.
 
2. Then uninstall "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" driver and "Intel Wireless LAN driver" completely. Current versions are not compatible with "Win 8.1".

My original HD is going bad so I decided to buy a new HD and an mSATA SSD. I've read more forums and watched more videos then I would have liked and I still can't find anything that can walk me through this. I want my mSATA to be configured like my original HD with a C: and D: partition and it to be able to run one button recovery and everything else that the original HD was able to do. Then I want the replacement disk HD to be just for storage. My computer did not come with an mSATA originally. It does have Intel Rapid Storage Technology but I can not find RapidTool.exe which some of the forums say is needed.










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Adding an mSATA SSD to a Y580 ideapad

 If your old HD is still operating, you should be able to clone it using the steps shown below.   Be warned that you must clone the whole drive, including all the hidden partitions, and can only resize the Windows Partition or the OKR recovery will not work, so the new m.2 SSD must be large enough to hold the entire contents of all the partitions of your existing HD drive.    Use Windows Drive Manager to view the sizes of the other parititons on your HD> If you need to make room, back up all your data and then delete from the current OS drive partition before cloning. http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/install-m2-ssd-lenovo-t440s Read this thread as well, it points out some important rules that must be followed when cloning so thaat OKR will work afterwards.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Enable-onekey-recovery-after-HDD-to-SSD-cloning... Hope that helps, and good luck

Post is okay, but then screen says there is no boot drive.  
Ran Lenovo diagnostics and Hard drive and SDD (with factory windows 7) both okay, but neither boot.
I am able to start up win 10 from a usb drive (very slow).  Ran repair and asked it to fix problems.  It comes back saying drive is "locked".  
What now?

A replacement keyboard (chicony, oki, or dafon are the makers - be sure to look for the manufacturer label and p/n right below the lenovo p/n on the back to get a genuine keyboard) would make a good spares, they are about $30 on ebay. I replaced a broken key on a few different laptops but much prefer to swap out the entire keyboard.  Once a single key goes bad it's likely that more keys will start to fail (note that 'e' is perhaps the most commonly used key on your keyboard because it's the most popular vowel.  Other popular keys like 't' might be failing sometime soon).  So I would suggest you buy a spare keyboard and save it until you can't live without it, the procedure to replace the keyboard is a 10 minute swap. If you want to replace a key, a sharp tipped (xacto-style) knife blade, and a loupe (magnifying lens) are important accessories.  Buy from a reputable site which has good instructions ( http://www.laptopkey.com/ ).  Unfortunately, the key and hinge are manufacturer-specific (OKI, Chicony, Dafon, see above) so you will need to determine it from the guide on www.laptopkey.com.  When I fixed our Acer c720 I also used needlenose pliers to bend a metal tab back into place, the key hinge wasn't seating correctly because the metal tab had bent and was open too wide.  The Acer c720 has a nightmare keyboard to replace with 75 different locking plastic tabs that bind it to the undersize of the palmrest, so i had little choice but to replace the single key or buy an entire keyboard/palmrest assembly. Thinkpad T-series keyboards are like the hood of a car, just pop 2-4 screws and push towards the LCD, then it pivots open like a hood and you can remove the connectors and install a new one's connectors and screw it down in 5-10 mins.  The 2-4 screws to remove often have a little picture of a keyboard on the back of the laptop or search for "Lenovo Y580 Hardware Maintenance Manual" and download the instructions for all the repairs to your laptop.

Hi all, I have a Lenovo Y580 with windows 10.1 on it. It worked fine until today. Today I started to enter something that called a Windows automatic repair loop. I keep getting the message the Windows ran into a problem and need to restart with an error message of FAT_FILE_SYSTEM of NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM. I Googled the subject and in the BIOS the "Intel Virtual Technology" is Enabled and the "SATA Controller Mode" I tried both AHCI and Compatible. I always got the same error and could not enter the Windows. Can someone give me a hint on what to do? Thank you in advance!

I've searched all over from http://www.eightforums.com to lenovo forums. I've called support and they demand a fee to provide me support for my brand new laptop. 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.

Recently my computer has been occasionally freezing while I've been browsing online. It doesn't actually get to the point of BSOD but programs will stop working and I eventually won't be able to close or open anything, including task manager.

I tried running CHKDSK to see if that could fix things, (it has crashed since then unfortuantely), doing so somehow filled up my hard drive. I went from having around 700 GB free to only having a couple hundred MBs free. I tried this two more times.

I've attached the dump log as requested as well as the three logs of the CHKDSK that I found in event viewer.

Hi, I am running Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5741 laptop. I have dual monitors running. One of them is going through the VGA output of my laptop and the other is going through a USB to VGA adapter. Neither of my monitors are HDMI ready, unfortunately.This has worked for a couple of years but in the USB to VGA monitor, there is now a black square around my cursor that is really annoying. I am guessing it must be some setting that I accidentally changed or that my cat changed by running across my keyboard.Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I had a better card in the PC and was running the AMD catalyst drivers.
I took that card out and put in the x1300.

Several times noticed some weird effects.
Then today I powered down cause it was pink, and it refused to turn on the screen.
So I let it sit and it is working again.

I did not uninstall catalyst AMD drivers, is that a problem? the x1300 is not a supported video card.

If it is a problem, then are the AMD drivers destroying the card? (terminating the old technology to make you get new technology)

and just any cool or decent boot screen that isnt officially a boring windows boot screen (Like the glowing balls of color that swirl around and then form the Windows Flag...)

Any help, comments, suggestions, insults, compliments, advice, anything at all, is welcome.

A:Boot screens and logon screens....

What boot screen are you talking about? Where I work we have no "Agency" specific boot screen. It is just the default Windows Logon/Boot Screen. If you one of those ones you see in the movies, then you are out of luck.

Thank you for any help you can offer

To activate the dual screens I have to hold down the window Icon and then press (p) to bring up window Icon allowing me to these extend, which allows me to use each monitor separately. How do I set it where the "extend" option is the default every time I open up my computer.

A:I have dual screens how do I get Windows 10 to accept dual screens (extend) as default

There doesn't seem to be an option built-in for this.. Would be a great feature for MS to implement in a next update tho

A:Y580 doesn't charge and doesn't detect the charger

Hi again, I checked the charger again and it seems that it's not working when I unplug it a plug it back in. If I get the charger working and close/open the lid or restart the machine, it is still working fine. Any ideas why unplugging and re-plugging the charger makes it unavailable for the laptop? Piotr

Hello!

I bought a new pc a few months ago but i had too many (more than 67 in 5 months) blue screens in the last months.

I uploaded a few of them here. Can someone please check them for me and tell me whats wrong with my pc/os ?

Thanks in advance.

PS: I runned orthos (more than 16 hours) and memtest without having any problems.

My system:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE MA790GP-DS4H AMD 790GX DDR2 HDMI HD3300
Cpu: Phenom II X4 940 Quad-Core 3.0GHz 8MB AM2+Black Edition
Ram: KINGSTON HyperX 4GB 1066MHz DDR2 CL5
Hdd: WESTERN DIGITAL Caviar Black SATA2 500GB 32MB
GPU: HIS HD4870 IceQ 4+ Turbo 1GB 256bit GDDR5 16X
 

A:Vista 64 bit Random Blue Screens (67 blue screens in 5 months)

Okay, I read six of your most recent minidumps contained in your first Zip file and all four in your second Zip file.

Here are the ones that stand out because they give a probable cause.

Two errors are 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

The driver cited in both is klim6.sys which belongs to Kaspersky.


Four errors are 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
The Windows kernel detected an illegal or unknown processor instruction. A Stop 0x1E condition can be caused by invalid memory and access violations similar to those that generate Stop 0xA errors.

0xA errors are caused by either hardware or drivers attempting to address an IRQ Level they have no business doing.

In all four the same Kaspersky driver kl1.sys was cited as the probable cause of your system crashes.


* I suggest updating Kaspersky and/or doing a search on their forums to see what the community has to say.

By the way, nice PC.

* Get back to us with any results.

Recently - past couple of weeks - I've been encountering "blue screens" at boot-up in the morning. I know these are serious, and probably indicate a new PC is needed; but maybe not. Can anyone please tell me how serious these errors are, and what the error source might be, based on the following technical information my system offers?:

12/20/11 - BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x00000019 (ox00000020, 0xE6C30500, 0xE6C31178, 0x0D8FF728)

12/22/11 - STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000074, 0xAF7E3C28, 0x00000000)

12/31/11 - 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8056BEF6, 0xAF247A80, 0x00000000)

Thank you.

A:Stop Error Screens ("Blue screens")

This could be caused by a bad hard drive, bad ram or software/driver that was recently installed.
Does the blue screen occur prior to logging into Windows?
Have you tried to boot into Windows safe mode?
Have you tried going back to a previous restore point?

What on EARTH process is always running in the background to make my hard drive chatter away for literally nearly - minutes work 10 work work HD my and makes Windows and work and after a bootup and we're talking with a FRESH install Some something is running a LOT in the background but task manager is absolutely worthless in pointing out what is going on It even gets to the point Windows 10 makes my HD work and work and work and work where after having the Edge browser opened and perusing the internet for awhile things get so bogged down and windows is too stupid to tell me exactly WHY it's bogged down things get to where even a mouse click is delayed upwards of seconds lol Sometimes things completely freeze and pushing the reset button is the only way out I've gone as far as downloading Avasts 'emergency startup' disc and booting from it thinking there might be a virus but it found nothing although I'm wondering if it's loading a small portion of windows which if it is and a virus or malware is in that small portion booting to the disc and running the anti-virus software is pointless maybe I should try it with a linux based emergency disc

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues. Whenever I try to make a call on the desktop version of skype, the program crashes. Whenever I try to open HP support assistant, the program crashes. When i am using the metro app version of skype I get a weird artifacting type problem on any of the buttons. I have this same problem in internet explorer and on Netflix. Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action? I don't know where to begin. I have tried updating drivers and the like but it has not helped.

Thank you

Hi. Am trying to run 2 monitors in Win 8 and whilst it recognises them, whenever I try and move say Chrome onto one then watch a video on the other it just closes Chrome then plays the video! And as you can't resize windows at all (that I can work out!) I can only do 1 thing at a time which is useless. Please help!

A:Using 2 screens

you should be able to display any non metro app on the second screen.

all metro apps open on the primary display and can not be moved from that display.

if you don't mind a suggestion?
use vlc to watch your video's or something similar.
and chrome.

keep to the desktop as well.

and if this is what your doing already let me know and i'll have a look see if i can recreate the problem on my own system.

just let us know what applications your using at the time, also if they are metro apps or not as well would be great.

Alright. I've got an issue here.

I'd love to explore the option of using two screens (my TV and my pc monitor) together.

However, since I play games in full screen mode, it seems that either the other screen will display the game or it will display nothing at all.

Is it possible, for example, to have a game running in my monitor and VLC player running in the telly in full screen mode simultaneously? Or, for example, if I could browse internet at the same time.

Seems like full screen mode is the only limiter here and I'm not fond at all of window mode

The contrast ratio of LCD screens is the darkest of black and the brightest of white and it is how much shades of black and white the screen can display .Not how much color it can display or shades of color.

Also is true that contrast ratio is not how sharp the pictures is but the dot pitch is how sharp the picture is.The lower the dot pitch the sharper the image

Also the more color depth the more bits used to represent the color pixel and that gives a better range of distinct colors.

A one bit would be 2 color and 2-bit would be 4 colors.And 4-bit would be 16 colors.The most they have now are 32 bit
