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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Unfortunately I have an Iphone 2g with an unresponsive screen after I accidentally dropped it but no cracks and the software and interface seems fine.. my problem is that Its completely unresponsive to any touches whatsoever.. any ideas?

A:Iphone 2g 8gb Touch screen unresponsive.

There's no such model as an iPhone 2G. There's the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S.

Since it worked immediately before you dropped it, and it stopped working immediately after you dropped it, I'd say something is broken. Take it to your provider or authorized Apple repair center and see what your options are for repair. If it's more than 2 years old, and your contract allows for a discounted upgrade, that would be the best bet.

Hi all, I bought an 14" Yoga 710 and have problems with touchscreen from the first start up. After powering on, touchscreen works well for a while but after stopping to touch for just 5-6 seconds it is coming unresponsive. When it comes unresponsive i press in an area constantly right click function works and also touchscreen works well again for a while. It seems that after staying inactive for a couple of seconds it comes to an unresponsive state. I did lots of things (calling lenovo support, recovering Windows 10, HID driver deleting, updating, disabling, turning power management off HID items, turning to default bios setting) but nothing changed. Does anyone have any ideas? Lenovo could you please provide a solution for this? Best regards

So we bought our child a touch screen HP all in one a while back for our child with special needs.  He loves it, but he only knows how to use the touch screen feature.  He will put his fingers in his mouth and then touch the computer screen which makes the screen get the little touch bubbles everywhere and the screen becomes unresponsive.  This is super frustrating because we have to do a reset to get the screen to respond again after wiping it off.   Is there some way to get the screen to become respoinsive again without doing an entire reset?

Hi,I have another new issue with my X1 Yoga which started yesterday after I installed Norton Antivirus.  I'm not sure if the two are related and have searched all over, run virus checks, turned off pointer trails, etc but it still will lock and then unable to touch the screen.  No external devices are attached.  Bluetooth is off.  If I use the pen, it will override but still can't use my fingers as it will freeze again. Any help would be appreciated - its really frustrating.   Screenshot on an example of just opening up Chrome while doing nothing else i.e. the ghost in the machine opened the box and will freeze the pointer within the box.  Except there is no way to add it...  Thanks for any help.

I tend to think that there may be some incompatible hardware on your system because of the random errors that are being generated. Your drivers appear updated and there don't appear to be any known incompatible programs installed.

My Ideapad S415 touch screen has suddenly stopped working.  I've had a tech connect to my PC and try a BIOS reload of default settings, plus unistalling all "HID" devices in Device Manager with no resolution.  I've also tried a system restore with no luck. The system properties does see the touch capability. Suggestions? Thanks.

hi Hersh,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
First do a Power Drain 
     (If the battery is removable)
            Remove AC and Battery and hold the power button down for 15 sec.
               Turn the computer back on and see if the Touch capability is now detected under System Properties,
                  If not
         I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Team about the Issue as this may be a device detection issue.

A:Lenovo S210 Touch broken LCD and Touch screen

Hi Magnutus, welcome to the forums.
Please check if you Lenovo S210 is on warranty under with this tool.
After that you can open a ticket with Lenovo for the screen to be fixed, if it is not under warranty it will have a cost.
If you are the guys that like to fix it yourself (and it is not under warranty) I can recommend you to check the support site for your model, read the Hardware Maintenance Manual (on the documents area) and check how the machine is organized on the inside. On the parts lookup page you can find the parts number so you can find a replacements for the component that is giving you issues.
I hope this links helps you.

Yesterday I was on my laptop and before I shut it down it went into what looked like a different mode. I booted it up this morning and it is still in this mode. It looks like touch screen mode but I do not have a touch screen.  The icons on the task bar are spaced out and there is a back button on the task bar too which is not normally there. When i right click against the task bar, one of the buttons says "Show touch keyboard button".  All of my files are spead out as if to have room for touching if I had a touch screen but I do not. I am finding this very annoying because I cannot get onto my desktop properly and is not in the right mode. Please help!

Hi keerati,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
Check the Touch funtionality in OKR environment.
    Turn off the computer and Turn it back on and right away start tapping F2.
    Select Recovery. Once in the Recovery screen Test the touchscreen by touching any of the option if it will respond.

If the touchscreen works in OKR Environment, I suggest you perform a One key recovery (expect dataloss).
If the touchscreen still did not work in OKR Environment, I suggest you call Lenovo Technical Team for assistance.

I've accidentaly dropped my backpack, while the laptop was in it and cracked it's screen so I need to replace it. The screen in the cracked part is working as it was working before the accident, the crack is on the glass. So I was wondering if I can replace my 15.6" 3840x2160 UHD Touch Display with a 15.6" 1920x1080 FHD Non-touch Display? Is it possible?I've read that whether screen you are changing, its working depends on the quantity of pins on the Video signal connector.

I am having a very wierd issue with vista's screen saver. So basically when I leave the comp idle it goes into screen saver then turns off the monitor after 15 mins. Sometimes, more often than not, I come back and move the mouse and hit a few keys on the keyboard and nothing. The monitor wont come out of standby I try turning it off and back on, and nothing. I have the latest drivers for everything in my system and I checked the power management settings and they both are able to wake the computer up. I have a G15 keyboard and I keep the leds on and when this happens the leds are off and the lazer for the mouse is off too. Any suggestions as to what my problem is would be fantastic!

Inability to successfully complete power state transitions (awake<->asleep<->hibernating) is almost always caused by driver or BIOS issues. If you're confident that all the drivers are on their latest versions, have you also done the same for the BIOS?

Hello splash, welcome to the Sevenforums!

Which fan is running at its highest, and is it because your computer is getting hot and or filled with dust?

Do you have the latest graphics drivers downloaded?

Have you tried switching the plugs around so that the power sources are different as a test?

What is the wattage on your Power supply unit? Is your graphics card getting enough watts?

I have had the computer for two years and haven't had any similar issues. There does not appear to be anything wrong with the pixels, as the color changes appropriately - it's just brighter. Furthermore, the bright spots on the screen heat up much more than the rest of the screen, which remains cool.

I have just wiped and reinstalled my mums 13month old asus vista laptop.

The odd thing is that there is an area on the screen where the mouse pointer does not work, it took a while to fugure out as I just thought that the program running has become unresponsive, for example when a dialogue box pops up, you need to drag it to the bottom of the screen to be able to click on yes or no, sometimes, the dialogue box is completely in the dead zone and can not be moved.

This is random and some days is worse than others.

Anyone ever had this.

Offered to take a look at a friend Sony Vaio laptop for them... the machine about 1 - 1.5 years old...

Basically, the problem is that the machine boots perfectly... it's totally responsive and goes through the steps, however the screen does not respond at all, it remains in the 'off-state'... there is no physical damage whatsoever to the screen

I'm wondering if anyone with experience has come across this problem before... from my knowledge of desktops I'd be thinking loose connection somewhere since laptop screens respond to the open and closing of the laptop, or possibly a problem with a connector inside the machine that could be switched out to restore action to the screen
Any help would be much appreciated...

On starting up my Compaq Presario CQ - I received notification of a virus and whilst attempting to remove it the laptop shut down to protect itself I briefly got a blue screen with text advising me of this before it quickly went to a black screen of death with flashing cursor I've researched this on various threads and forums but nothing F8 black Can't reboot, screen, unresponsive key described the exact problem I have When I tried advice to reboot in safe mode by using Ctrl Alt Delete nothing happens and I get no response from repeatedly hitting the F key either just the black screen I've tried various things I've seen recommended powering off for mins removing battery hard reset including sec battery drain etc but nothing worked I also connected an external monitor which showed nothing thereby I think ruling out graphics card and display issues I did find that by hitting F key I was able to get into BIOS diagnostics and ran memory test which was passed and then a primary hard disk test which failed within seconds with - Fail So could i somehow reset to an earlier state even if it wiped computer or is only option an expensive new hard disk I'm posting this from Can't reboot, black screen, F8 key unresponsive a nd machine so I do have the option of downloading and using USB to transfer solutions if I can get Compaq to respond Grateful for any advice Thanks

If you failed the inbuilt hard drive test, it's most likely that your hard drive has failed.
If you're unsure of that, run one of the free diagnostics listed here: HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

I just bought a 250 gB hard drive today for $43 (US)
You'll also need recovery disks for your system. If you don't have them, here's a link for ordering them (US only): Order Recovery Discs (USA)

Greetings all,

I'm having a problem I haven't encountered before. My computer will boot up Windows XP as normal, then after 1-2 minutes the screen will go blank and will not respond (must manually turn off power switch), although CPU fans and power are still running.

Rebooting is also problematic, as often the lights turn on, but there's no HD activity, BIOS beep, etc. Will only boot every 5th or 7th time, which it does successfully, only to go blank and unresponsive again after a minute or two.

I've tried booting in Safe Mode and have the same problem.

Any suggestions? I take it this would be a hardware problem?

Hi. Lately I've had a couple of computer freezes. It happens randomly, sometimes there can be days between each freeze.

When it happens, the screen freezes; the mouse is unresponsive but everything is still showing up on the screen. And if I have music on it stops and this high pitched sound starts playing. So no BSOD.... I End up having to do a hard reset or restart.

I have no idea about what is causing the problem. I need help logging all errors so I can start finding the root of the problem. How do I do that?
I've already tried looking at the event logger in Windows but as far as I could see there were no logs during the system freeze...

This will help. The BSOD people will need it.

A:Screen flashes then mouse becomes unresponsive.

That is one heck of a machine not to be used for gaming, unless your using it for stuff like Photoshop, Illustrator, CAD, etc.

There have been many other users that have reported this issue. Some claim to have fixed it by uninstalling Logitech Setpoint if you have it installed. Others have claimed to fix it by unplugging other USB devices that were connected. It seems though that there has yet to be one unified solution to this issue. I would suggest starting by looking for any conflicting software (like the Setpoint that I mentioned) and then trying unplugging and replugging any USB hardware to see if it cures the issue.

As it stands, It really seems to be a USB issue of some sort, but all the further that it has gotten (to my knowledge.) The only thing I can figure is it might be in the way that Windows 8 handles USB connections, but I think I have also heard of the issue showing up in Windows 7 and 10 as well. Its hard to say. Im really wondering if it isnt a certain USB chipset that is causing the issue, or certain ones that are all in the same family.

Hi Forum,

My computer has been performing irregular actions that disable me from using it.

The computer will load to the Windows Login Screen after booting, however it has changed to a low resolution (Would normally load straight into 1920x1080). The use of keyboard and mouse are not being registered and so I cannot continue any further into the login process.

The keyboard will let me select which boot mode I would like to use when selecting whether or not I would like to boot using safe mode. Once booted in safe mode the computer still produces the same problem. I have also tested the keyboard and mouse on another computer and they work fine.

The keyboard and mouse have been tested in every USB slot available on my build, still producing the same problem.

Any insight on my problem would be greatly appreciated.

Yours in faith,

A:Unresponsive Windows Login Screen

Have you tried?

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:

Start your computer.
When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

Recently my HP G62 stock laptop has been randomly experiencing screen freeze and unresponsiveness whenever this happens- with no solution but to force shutdown. There is nothing specific that causes this, as far as I am aware, as it happens completely randomly on its own. The computer is not overheating and I have updated all of my drivers. This happens at least once a day, and sometimes before it happens, my audio completely stops working, although I don't think that is linked because the two issues can happen independently of one another.

Attached is my BSOD dump file.

A:Screen freeze, unresponsive lock up.

Hello Kennyful.

Apparently it is not a BSOD issue; as the zip contains the last BSOD that is of 2012.

Do one thing as suggested.
Start > Right click on "computer" > Manage
Click on Device manager.
Double click on "display Adapter"
Right click on "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470" > select "properties
Click on "Driver" tab

Hi everyone,

For all purposes, my computer is running fine; however, there is a minor annoyance I'm having.

When I first start up the system and log in to a user, the password dialog works fine; that is, I can enter my password. But there are other people who use my computer.

If I try to log off my account and log into another account after the computer has been running for a while, the password box that appears has NO blinking text cursor and I am unable to enter the account's password to proceed. Restarting the computer causes the cursor to return, but I was hoping for a quick and easy solution.

I have a toshiba satellite l350d laptop and earlier today for some reason the screen went black while I was using it. No back light or anything. I figured it just shut down due to over heating because it was pretty hot underneath. But the fan was still running and the power, battery and cd drive lights were still on. I tried shutting it down by holding the power button but it is completely unresponsive. So I waited until the battery ran out. I booted up my computer but the screen remained dark and only the lights and fan turned on. I know I should be posting my computer specs but I don't know what they are at the moment.

Hopefully there is a easy fix for this

I have a ASUS A73SV Laptop and it has been working fine a few years. Just today, I crashed out of BF4 (As usual) but then got BSOD. After I restarted and logged into my account, the screen dimmed after about a second and I couldn't click on anything. I still saw the startup programs launching in the background though. My main moniter didn't have a taskbar but my secondary moniter has a non-windows taskbar. (DisplayFusion) In safe mode, the problem doesn't occur. I looked at the startup files and there was nothing suspicious. I also ran a malware scan just in case, and removed all the files it found. Please I need a fix asap. Thx

If you need the memory dump from the bsod, Ill provide a link to it.

A:Windows 7 Screen Dims and turns unresponsive after login.

Sounds like two things did to happen:
1. Reinstall Win 7 (clean install so you are starting out like new, or
2. New laptop time. . .Either way good luck.

I have a Dell XPS 420 desktop with Windows Vista. I shook the mouse and clicked a few times to wake the computer up, and was met with a black screen with nothing visible but the cursor. I could move the cursor, but the keyboard controls such as Ctrl+Alt+Delete and F8 were unresponsive. Following these attempts, I tried turning the computer off and on using the power button on the tower, but the computer would not shut down. The display settings buttons on the monitor worked, as well as the slideshow menu on the tower, but these provided no solutions. Help, please!

A:Solved: Black screen with cursor, unresponsive keyboard controls

To do a hard shutdown, you need to press and hold in the power button for about 5 seconds.

After it powers off, wait about 30 seconds, then press the power button and see if Windows loads.

ok, so I'm coming from the HJT help forum, they suggested I come here as they've stated that I'm clean of malware, yet still suffering this problem.

Information here:

Anyways, a bit of a recap/update on my problem. This started on like 1/30 or 1/31 and began with an internet connection loss...since then my computer's been acting very oddly, and I'm not sure if the internet thing was just a coincidence or what. And on top of that since the 11th I've been running my computer in safe mode with networking, as I've not been able to even keep it running in normal mode without it freezing up, etc. Anyway, any help would be appreciated, and if anyone helping needs me to elaborate on something, just let me know and I'll do my best to help in anyway possible.

A:Screen blacks out, freezes up for extended periods of time, PC becomes unresponsive

Does the system finishing loading all the processes before it freezes? You have a heck of a lot of programs running at startup
Disable some of the crap using Spybot S&D.
Open Spybot, click Mode / Advanced Mode then answer yes to the popup box. Click Tools / System Startup. Here lies a list of startup applications. It better to take the check out of the box using Spybot rather than using MSCONFIG. Its best to use a Normal Startup instead of a Selective Startup.

Let me know if you got a handle on it.

Unresponsive quot or something - quot go here to fix the problem quot all of which links looked like they went to the same ad site I turned my computer off and now when Computer boots to black screen, flashing underscore. Unresponsive I turn it on it boots past the manufacturer logo I see setup options i e F and F and then displays a black screen with a flashing white underscore in the top left Can t boot into safe Computer boots to black screen, flashing underscore. Unresponsive mode or at least can t figure out how to do it Specs Running Windows XP SP Thanks Tristan

A:Computer boots to black screen, flashing underscore. Unresponsive

can you not get into safe mode because you've already tried, or have you tried pressing f8 after startup?
let us know if you see the boot options. you'd do better in the malware forum now, since anything that we
suggest may only ameliorate the problem, not completely fix it.

Although I?m not using Windows 7 OS yet, what it has to offer & all that I?ve seen, it's pretty impressive. I'm in the process of deciding whether to go with the upgrade W7 or purchase a new Laptop/Notebook? One concern or complain I must state. I understand that Windows 7 comes with touch screen capabilities, but ONLY works with a human touch? Being physically disabled & cannot use my hands at all I type by using a head-pointer with an eraser for a tip. Yes, I?m not going to be dishonest here, I?m using an aftermarket touch screen with Vista, but I?m leery on how (or if) I can still use it with W7? I don?t know how, but I would just love to get in contact with a MS Developer to express my views. Am I correct in assuming that the touch screen option requires a human finger touch?

A:Touch screen in W7?

W7 isn't limited to touchscreens that only respond to finger operation but to touchscreens whose controllers identify them as HID touch devices, a relatively new category. W7, like its predecessors, recognizes HID mouse devices, which most touchscreens have been until recently. Treating a touchscreen as a mouse has never delivered the best user experience, as it precludes right-click-on-hold, calibration, edge acceleration, and many other valuable facilities. Consequently, vendor-specific drivers, which do provide these facilities, have been used. W7 accepts most of these drivers. In the WDM driver stack, these are lower-level drivers. To the OS, the device still appears to be mouse. Therefore, none of the new touchscreen-specific features of W7 will be available.

The reason that you might have heard that only finger operation is supported is that W7 recognizes as touch devices only those that identify themselves as HID-touch. Of these, only the ones that generate touch-specific events allow you to use gestures and multi-touch. The two technologies most likely to support these are capacitive, which requires finger activation, and wire-matrix digitizer, which requires an electronic pen. W7 can still use other touchscreens, including old ones, but the new capabilities will not be available.

I have a netbook and a desktop. When Windows 8 comes out, if I install it on my desktop, would I have to get a different monitor to use the touch screen or will it work with any of the newer monitors?

If you want touchscreen capability, you will need a touchscreen. But I am sure Win8 will also work with the traditional gear.

I'm planning to buy a new laptop but will never be using the touch screen. Will I lose any functionality in Win10 by just using a mouse and keyboard with a touch-screen laptop? Do touch screen models use a different version of Win10?

BTW, I know I can buy a non-touch screen model and may do that, but we're looking for a large screen and non-touch choices are limited.

A:Not using touch screen

There's no problem with that, any icons or tiles are clickable with mouse, just like everywhere else. For touch screen devices there is "Tablet mode" and can be turned off to behave same as any other desktop/laptop. If device doesn't have touch screen, Tablet mode is disabled by default.

Tablet Mode - Turn On or Off in Windows 10

There's no special version of Windows for such cases except for Windows phones.

I am using a Lenovo IdeaPad S510p Touch laptop (Running Windows 8, x64 bit), and have recently installed updates after not having updated it for three months.
Now I am having issues with the touch screen. It was working fine before, but now it is not responding to any of my input. The drivers seem to be all up to date, and I've installed all the available updates for my PC.
Does anyone have a solution for my problem? I don't want to have reinstall Windows or anything like that, so please don't suggest it unless I really have to.
Thank you!

Looking into using a touch screen monitor. I use Windows 7 Home Premium and I understand that Windows Touch is available on the version.

If I would get the monitor, do I need to find drivers or are they include with Win 7?

Is anyone using a touch screen monitor now?

Looking at Windows 8, I have been playing with the Consumer Preview copy and it looks like a touch screen would be useful with Win 8 if a person would decide to upgrade to that.


A:Touch screen anyone using

Hello Jack, welcome to Sevenforums!

Touchscreen is useful, and fun. It is by no means neccessary, however. Windows has a standard driver, but for a touchscreen, you will want to look up the driver on the monitor's manufacturer's website. There are 2 different drivers - 64 and 32 bit. Make sure you get the right one according to your system.

If I were to use touchscreen, it would be because of application(s) that require it, or are easier to use because of it.
