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.)

Hi mikemjscott ,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

Did you manage to install the drivers from the support site.
Would you have the machine number from the sticker or check it from the parts lookup page.
Just keep your serial number confidential.

Update us as soon as convenient.

Regards

I recently switched to Windows 10 from Windows 8. I have installed drivers dowloaded from lenovo support. While graphics intense applications are opened the AMD graphics is supposed to be switched on. But it is not switching from intel graphics. Also my headphone jack is not working. Is there anything to install for switching graphics and audio jack to work properly.?

Dear ajidjz,
 
Welcome in lenovo community,
 
To switch between the graphics cards,
 
Please open the BIOS configuration page, and make sure that (Optimus GPU device) is switchable.
 
About the audio problem,
 
Open control panel >> hardware and sound >> Smart audio >> choose Audio Director >> click Multi-Stream
 
Regards,
Joseph

Dear community!

I have problem instaling Windows 8 on my new Lenovo laptop G50-80. I received Lenovo CD with Windows 8, inserted that CD in DVD drive and placed DVD drive as first in boot priority.

The problem which I have is that my Lenovo doesn't load Windows 8, instead it goes every time to FREE DOS. What should I do?

Here are picture of BIOS settings:

A:Problem with Installing Windows 8 from CD on my new Lenovo

I don't think the DVD is what you think it is. Try booting it in a different computer to check it out.

Download a new Windows 8.1 ISO and use it instead: Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

I'd recommend creating a flash drive to install from rather than a DVD, faster install.

A:Installing Netflix on a Lenovo Yoga 900 with Windows 10

How about install Netflix online ?

Open your browser, search for Netflix > enter your email address and password etc etc.

That was what I did..... install Netflix on line instead of Windows Store.

hi Swistak1986,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you're planning to install Win7 in legacy (MBR) mode and you've already checked this thread, can you try the following steps and observe:
 
1. Boot into the BIOS and set the following settings:
 
Exit Tab:
OS Optimized Defaults = Win7 OS
 
When finished, hit Load default settings (just right above it) then set these additional settings:
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
 
Boot Tab:
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First
 
2. When finished, hit Fn+F10 to save and exit and boot from the Win7 USB installer and observe if you can now install Win7 in legacy (MBR) mode.
 
 
Regards

I am having difficulty installing Windows 7
on a Lenovo X260. I removed all the third party drivers using PowerShell using:

Unmount Image
Dismount-WindowsImage  -Path c:\mount2
-Save
When I booted
from the UFD and started the install it stopped at the stage where it trying to
copy the files to the Hard Drive since no devices were found for the destination I even browse the drivers on the Hard Drive (strange) and load it manually and it does not show me the SSD drive where I can install Windows 7. I would have thought that it
would copy the installation files to the SSD since I can browse to the existing install.

Hello sagarap and welcome to the forum! How did you create the pendrive, from an ISO and where from? Any errors during installation? What OS was on it before? After install did you make sure the BIOS was set to boot from the hard drive?

Some more info would help.

Hello all,

I have a problem installing windows 7 on my new windows 10 laptop. I find it very weird how I change settings in the BIOS to support all legacy stuff like windows 7 and I try to boot from USB all the way to dvd and nothing works. What I mean is when it is done booting, it says " No drivers were found" and there's not a hard drive for me to choose windows 7. It's weird though because there are windows 7 drivers on the official support page, yet I can't install it?

I just need to see a hard drive listed but nothing pops up, and yes I've formatted it already using diskpart.


Thanks

I noticed that new drivers were released for G580. The drivers (Lenovo Enegry Management Driver) canot install because when the installer starts up, it immediatelly closes. Do I have an issue somewhere? Windows 10 (1511, Build 10568.17)Lenovo G580 (20157)

A:Lenovo G580 Windows 10 ACPI Driver not installing?

hi acemod13,
 
I looked at the Lenovo Energy Management driver for Windows 10 and upon observing the installer behavior, it extract the ACPI driver files (58KB) to C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver (this may explain why the installer closes right after extracting).
 
If you're seing an Unknown Device in the Device Manager with an ACPI hardware ID (see image below) then try to update the driver manually and point it to the C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver folder
 - Sample image
 
If you're unable to see the driver files, I've uploaded them here.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

Dear Team, I am helping a friend with Lenovo laptop G710. He had purchased it with preinstalled Windows 8.1 which was upgraded to Windows 10.Everthying seems to work except the USB 3.0 port. Every time he connects any device (external hard disk, WiFi antenna), the device works properly for a moment and after that starts disconnecting and reconnecting constantly.He tried to install the available drivers for his model from your website but it did not work. He also scanned his laptop with your software for driver updates and there was a message that the sytem is up-to date.By the way, for test purposes he installed Ubuntu and the USB port was working.Could you please assist with this issue? Do you recommend the use of any other driver for any other model?

I will be clear and to the point:"The Battery gauge is messed up. It never shows how much it ACTUALLY is. Like right now its stuck on 99% when I know it should be less (Since i've been using it alot on battery)" These are the things I did:1. Reinstalled Windows 10.2. Disabled Lenovo ACPI Controller and Uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Battery Drivers.3. NEVER used Lenovo Battery Manager. Please tell me a possible fix other than Downgrading back to Windows 8.1.Thanks

My mouse has been acting up for a few days with 2-finger scrolling. As of today it does not work and I recently checked to notice that the Synaptic Driver is not installed. There is also no tab for mice in my device manager. After downloading the driver from the Synaptic website and from the Lenovo product site, I ran the .exe file and went through the installation wizard, at the end of the installation I was told that the Synaptic Driver "Install failed". I have googled many things and have had no luck. ??

The recent Windows Anniversary Update has produced several major issues with my 2 year old B750 AIO.  First the audio became very scratchy.  That was fixed by going to the RealTek site and getting drivers for this update.  Issues remaining seem to involve things on my task bar:  There is a message symbol showing, but it will not open to see what it is.  At the speaker volume symbol, I can't raise or lower the volume.  Cortana will not respond to voice or typing in the box on the task bar.  I also tried to open the Lenovo support screen, but it will not open.  There could be many other items not working, that I have not discovered yet. How should I go about getting these things working again?

So I just built my new computer. All is well until I try to install Windows. When I get the blue screen which installs all of the necessary drivers and whatnot to start the Windows installation it just hangs at the "Setup is starting Windows" message on the bottom of the screen. This is just before where you choose where to install Windows, create partitions and all of that fun stuff.

Any help getting Windows to install would be great, so far I'm stumped.

Why is it not working? I have searchd everywhere on the computer to see if maybe the files need to be Run, but I cannot find them. I am totally at a loss to figure out how to complete the update and continue installing my router. Please help!

I wanted to do a reinstall of Windows 7 and so far it's done nothing for me except cause stress and frustration. First it tells me it cannot install to disc because it's GPT, whatever that means... So I'm told to do Shift+F10 and enter these commands:

diskpart
select disk 0
clean

This appeared to work but then I got a different message. It reads "Windows cannot be installed to the disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

Not sure what to do from here... It managed to install Ubuntu so the HDD itself is fine. It's just Windows 7.

I have crippled a brand new unused Lenovo G580 Laptop trying to install windows 8.

Attempted to install from a USB drive after the install from desktop option failed due to "cannot initialize start menu" error.

Having loaded the USB on the "Where do you want to install windows 8?" menu my HD was listed in 4 partitions: 1= system Drivers (system), 2 = Windows 7 (Primary), 3 = Lenovo (Primary) 4 = Lenovo_Part (reserved)

Installation was not possible on any drive to due error message : "The selected disk has an MBD Partition table. On EFI systems Windows can only be installed to GTP disks"

I then stupidly clicked on format and formatted partition 2 which contained the Windows 7 OS thinking that would let me install 8. However even after that the same error message prevents installation and now i've lost my windows 7 files meaning the laptop no longer runs.

Can anyone give me some sage advice or point to where I might get some?

Hello...I will start from the begining .

I bought the Acer V5 and tried booting it up...it came with boot-up Linux which means nothing to me so I made a Windows 8 bootable USB and the problems started. First I could'n find the USB and after enabling the Legacy mode it finally found it and booted from it. Turned out the partitions are GPT and as I made the USB MBR it couldn't install so I canceled which I guess was my mistake but there was no other option. After that I created the bootable USB with GPT partition scheme and tried again. Unfortunately this time I got something called GNU GRUB....wth? I googled around and found the commands required for booting - root (hd1,0), then chainloader +1 and finally boot. Then I get the famous The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors with Status: 0xc000000e. Of course tried that couple of more times but still to no avail. I cannot recover or repair as Windows was never really installed, so I don't know what to do....Hopefully someone here would be able to help. Thanks in advance guys.

Hi!
I bought a Compaq Laptop in 2005 in India. I received an "Operating System CD" (That's what it says!) with XP Home SP2. The key was on a sticker below my laptop.
I recently changed over to a Mac and want to install XP on it (Sorry!). Can I do that legally without any hassles? Also, I have moved to the US now, so does that matter? (Are licenses for particular areas only?)
Thanks a ton!

A:Installing Windows from a CD which came with one computer on another: Legal Issues

If the software is legit (easily checked by the COA you have stuck to the machine) then to install it to another machine would be okay provided that you remove it from the laptop (can only be installed on 1 machine). There are a couple of problems you may come across. If the laptop has a version of XP that's been volume licensed by Compaq then it won't install on the other machine. If it's the full (or OEM) version then it should be okay. You would likely have to ring MS to activate it and explain to them that it has been moved from one machine to another. They are pretty helpful with this type of problem and as long as you are genuine in your approach then there shouldn't be any major problem.

I've just purchased a laptop (without a cd-drive) and wanted to install Office.

As a student I have free access to Office 2007 (Microsoft Office Suite 2007 Service Pack 1 32-bit (English) - MSDNAA).

I'm currently using Office Starter 2010.

Now when I download the iso file, using winRAR I am able to extract the files but when I try to install I get the following:



This is then followed by the message: "There are no products affected by this package installed on this system".

I've looked online for a starter version of Office 07 (or something like that) to no avail. I've also attempted to "burn" the iso to a usb stick and install it that way but again with no success.

I'd be grateful for some help as I have no idea of where to go from here.

(After doing much research) I have an older PC with XP SP3 that I want to upgrade to windows 7. First I want to clone the hard drive to an external drive then install the 7 on the computer (yes I have enough free space on the hard drive). From what I have read I will lose my documents and other files and programs I have installed. What I am worried about is the drivers. Are they left alone? Replaced? If 7 does not have an appropriate driver (like to the FAX modem) will the old one be retained? If not will my PC recognize any driverless hardware and try to find drivers via "plug and Play"? Can I import the missing driver from the clone? Thanks.

A:Issues installing Windows 10 on new hard drive

Just as the computer reboots the first time during install, pull the flash drive out.

The problem is that your bios is set to boot from USB flash drive permanently as the first device. Bios needs to be set to boot from the hard drive first as priority - and then you manually tell it to boot from the flash drive when you want it to. The workaround to changing your bios settings is to pull the flash drive out just as the computer reboots the first time when installing Windows 10.

If you happen to miss it - when the computer reboots into the first install screen again, just remove the flash drive and restart the computer.

A:[SOLVED] Issues after Installing new Windows 7 on two computers.

You cannot use an usb that had windows 7 loaded on it to install on the hp. it will be preactivated and have the dell logo, it will be an oem addition of windows and it won’t match your hardware on your hp, your wireless will not work until you download all your correct drivers.

I downloaded Windows 10 Anniversary Edition on my HP Notebook 15 a couple days ago.  This version came as an update, and it was not clear to me until it was complete. This laptop is new for me, purchased in June this year.  Since the update, the sound quality has been poor; very scratchy and white noise in background. Not sure what to do to fix this.  Anyone else?

A:Issues installing Windows XP on my hp pavilion dv6700 notebook

That's because XP does not have the SATA drivers for the Hard Drive .. so it doesn't see it.
If you know the Driver .. it can be slipsteamed into the XP install CD.
Even if you can do this, you'll probably have trouble finding the other drivers that are missing.

Have you though about getting the recovery DVDs from HP ??
You should have recovered from the recovery partition .. it was safe.

I currently have an AL-1540CS printer that's hooked up to the USB port of my PC. I went to the official SHARP Website to search for the drivers of it and I downloaded them. The problem is whenever I try to install the drivers it says:

"The installer has detected an unsupported operating system. This software can only be installed in the following operating systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista"

After it shows this message it just closes. I tried using it with compability mode, but it won't work either with any settings. I contacted SHARP, but no answer from them yet.

Any help?

A:Printer drivers not installing on Windows 7 due to compability issues.

This is SHARP's response:

"Thank you for contacting Sharp Electronics Corporation.

Currently, there is no software available for your copier that is compatible with Windows 7. We do have the software CD available for purchase, however, this will only work with Windows XP. We have no timetable on the release of any software at this time."

What the heck? Are you kidding me? I now have an unusable printer. Is there anyway I could fix this?

A:GPT Hard drive issues with installing Windows 7 Ultimate..

Hello DrWolfenstein, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this is a new PC and formatted as GPT, then you have a UEFI motherboard.

If you have not already, then I would recommend creating a factory recovery USB to be able to restore Windows 8 back to factory conditions on your PC if you should ever want to in the future.Create a Packard Bell Factory Default Backup in Windows 8
Next, double check to make sure that there are Windows 7 drivers available for all devices on the PC. There's no sense in installing Windows 7 if you don't have drivers for the PC.

To install Windows 7 on UEFI, you would first need to create a bootable Windows 7 UEFI USB flash drive using the tutorial below.UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows
Next, the tutorial below will show you how to install Window 7 on UEFI with the UEFI USB.UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with

I have an ASUS ROG RAIDR Express PCIE SSD which I have it in UEFI mode where I was able to install Windows 7 successfully on it with my motherboard BIOS set to UEFI mode and CSM to UFEI as well. But now when I connect my storage HDD's and my 2 Corsair Neutron GTX SSD's which I set up in a RAID0 array in Legacy mode along with my Blu-ray RW optical drive, they're not recognized in Windows at all. How can I get Windows to recognize my drives in UEFI if even possible at all? I've tried switching the CSM back to Legacy to see if that'll work, but my system gets stuck in boot loop after the Intel RAID setup screen.

Hi, I recently clean upgraded my Xp to Windows 7. I did a clean sintall and am slowly installing everything from scratch.

When I downloaded AVG free, it wouldn't configure the files, it just stalled.

I went with Avira, who have never failed me in the past and it installed and downloaded files without any hassles, lucky.

Since then I've downloaded the latest patch for my evga gtx 285 and the driver just stall when it says "installing files". I downloaded the 64bit patch.

The same thing has happened when I downloaded iTunes 64bit. The thing just stalls when it looks as though ti's completing installation.

Any ideas? Thanks

Hi,
In trying to re-install W-7 Pro from a Microsoft install disk, I formatted the System partition and need to provide a driver to the install procedure. I've run into a problem: I downloaded the Western Digital driver to a thumb-drive but when I tell the W-7 installation procedure to find the driver on the thumb drive, and "DriverRestore.exe" from Western Digital appears on the file directory, I select the file, and press "Open", the installation procedure responds with "The specified location doesn't contain any information about your hardware"
But I'm sure that file is for the correct Hard Drive.
What to do?

Hi Everyone,

With the Firmware configured as follows, will installing Windows automatically format the Hard Disk Drive with a GPT (GUID Partition Table) and remove the FreeDOS which I don't need?

Firmware Configuration (UEFI)
UEFI/Legacy Boot: UEFI Only
CSM: Disabled
Boot Mode: Diagnostics (Deactivates Quick mode)

Should I install any Windows Programs before I install Linux or should I wait until after Linux is installed?

I can't seem to find a page that gives any indication of what type of bios is has. But it will normally say on the top of the Bios menu page that it is a UEFI bios.

There will also be settings that mention UEFI, and if you use the Boot Device menu, you should see a DVD entry that is plain and one with a UEFI designation.

If you are trying to use a flash drive, it may need to be set up specifically to be able to boot UEFI.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
About the heating issue, It may be just normal, just make sure the computer has enough ventilation underneath when you use it.
   Im more concern about the keyboard being pushed it when you press a key.
 I strongly suggest you bring the computer where you bought it and have them look at the issue as this may seem to be a hardware issue.

Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:issues with Lenovo G50-80

Hi HC,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
For brightness issue, I would recommend for you to download and install the latest chipset & energy management driver & check if the issue still persist or not.
 
For not sleep issue, Can you try turning ON or OFF the Hybrid Sleep
Here's how you'll get to the settings.
When you put the computer to sleep, is the power button blinking?
- Link to picture
 
If not, this is probably the reason why the machine is not waking up from sleep because it's not asleep in the first place. In this case, reboot the machine, perform a clean boot and observe (this is to isolate any processes running in the background that's possibly interfering with the sleep process).
 
Other things that you can try:

Check this Recommended Settings for Sleep
Turn off Fast Start-up

 
For HDMI issue, please check by performing the Flee-Power in the computer then re-install then connect the HDMI and check by pressing Winkey+P select ?Projector Only? option. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
Open your Lenovo Energy management and turn off the Hard Drive power Saver option.

 
I would try shining a flashlight into the port to see if all the pins are aligned correctly, there are no broken/loose pieces and that there isn't dust or debris preventing good contact.  I would also take it a step further and use a little canned air on the port to insure that it is clean.  If you need to physically clean inside the port, make sure the battery is removed and the laptop is unplugged.  If the port passes inspection then try a second cable. 
 
If the problem persist then replacing the port would be the next step. Please contact the authorised Lenovo service center for hardware assistance.
 
For headphones issue, you just need to reinstall the sound driver and install it one more time. Click here for Audio driver. See if it will make any changes
 
 
Let us know if it helps.
           
Regards,
Shashi Kumar

I download the :Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI) Driver, from the Lenovo website: The link for the driver ( for Lenovo y700-15ISK) :
 
 Click here
 
I download, give permission to run, then nothing happens; no installation wizard, nothing. This is the only driver I haven't been able to update, and it is the one that is causing me serious problems with audio latency, as Latencymon v 6.50 tells me. I get crackling sound from speakers, but when I disable the ACPI driver, the crackling goes away. The problem is that if I disable the ACPI driver, I am no longer able to see my battery status. So it is important that I update this driver. However, I don't know how it is possible that the driver provided by Lenovo does absolutely nothing at all.
 
Mod Edit: Corrected the text format so message displayed correctly

Update: Even in the newest BIOS Update 62cn97ww (for Lenovo G580), Ubuntu causes the same problem. I came across a solution on the internet, that works without having to update the BIOS if Ubuntu can be accessed. To fix it, boot into Ubuntu (should be installed on the system), start Terminal and type in the following commands:sudo grub-install
sudo efibootmgr -b 0 -BReboot and F2 should work. BIOS should be accessible through F12>Tab>Setup also. Ubuntu will boot no more but can probably be fixed.

Hello everyone, I have being upgrading an old A70 desktop that I had tucked away in a cupboard, and have added Windows 10 (Only 32 bit) and gave it a good tidy up.  However, after going onto Crucial's website and buying 2GB of RAM (Using their 'built-in scanner' and trying to install it, to machine refuses to boot. The module did look quite 'bent' when getting it out of the packaging, though. I have tried the new module in both memory slots, but with no luck. If I put the old RAM back in, the machine will boot up.  So, do I new a replacement RAM module? Or will the BIOS need upgrading? (Or both!)  Many thanks in advance

A:Lenovo G70-70 Touchpad issues

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Here are a couple of things to try.......
 
First, try doing a BIOS reset.  This procedure can be useful in resolving hardware problems where there maybe a conflict.  Completely shut down Windows and do this......
 
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
Secondly, if the reset didn't work then try uninstalling the touchpad driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy of the touchpad driver. 
 
Click here for the Windows 7 version
 
Click here for the Windows 81. version
 
If the above procedures didn't correct the problem then the problem is mostly likely the touchpad itself and returning it would be a good idea.

I recently upgraded the RAM from 8gb to 16gb (2x8gb from kingston). To my dismay, Lenovo has proven that I have instead downgraded since my RAM mghz dropped from 1600 to 700, a more than 50% decrease in speed. Since Lenovo has decided I am not tech savvy enough to use the BIOS and has partnered with Insyde to lock us users out of our own product, I am wondering if Lenovo customer/IT support has any idea how to fix this issue. To be clear, the issue is that I am unable to access the BIOS which is what you would normally use to access the hardware in your system. Due to "upgrading" my RAM size, I have inadvertently downgraded my RAM speed. A solution would be nice, since Lenovo believes its clientele to be stupid and locks its clients out of the BIOS.

Hello,I have an HP m6 that suffered from constant hinges breaking, despite getting them replaced, they break in 1 year max. Normal usage and no going outdoors I swear.I then got yesterday a Dell 5558 that im returning due to its touchpad and screen's washed colors. Now I'm here, about to get a G50-80 or a Z51, so my question is related to the G50-80 here: 1- What are the known issues? Everythin got issues, i'd rather know them before buying than after. 2- Hinges... anyone experienced or heard about problems related to them breaking and so on?  Thank you

A:Lenovo G50-80 Hinges and Known Issues?

hi,I have purchased Lenovo Laptop G50-80 on Nov 1st last year. I did face the issue. First the hinges become  tight.Even for Normal usage, the two bottom screws peeled off.  The bottom case is being pulled apart near the hinges.When I approached the Lenovo  service center , they said the whole case is to be replaced. They charge me USD 80. They said it will not be covered under warranty. In my view, they have made plastic support , instead of metal. Any justice ?

My Lenovo Flex 2 15 is about six weeks old. On occasion I will sign on, the system will boot up then after a few seconds the screen will shrink to half size on the left side of the screen then I will get a blank screen followed immediately by the start up screen. I will log in again and everything could be all right or it could take 3 more tries.  The McAfee virus scan found no issues and the free version of Glary Utiities came back okay. Is this a virus issue or a Lenovo issue?

A:Lenovo start up issues

Sounds more like a graphics card problem. You might try checking to confirm you have the latest drivers. If you do an uninstall, reboot and reinstall might also be worth your time.

So today I noticed some flickering on my laptop's monitor, I restarted the computer and the backlight on the monitor is acting strange. It appears like half of the backlights are on while the other half are out, causing this weird pattern of columns of bright sections of the screen followed by dark sections. When the laptop is unplugged, the backlight doesn't work at all making the screen impossible to see, also changing the brightness setting while it is plugged in has no effect on the lights.

I looked at the Power managment options everything is at 100 %, also the NVIDIA and INTEL settings are all on Max Performance. The funny thing is: When im using google chrome or copying some files, it clocks itself on to 3,6GHZ. I also did some virus scans - everything is OK. I tried to leave chrome open and start a game: BOOOM back at 2,6 ghz... i really dont know what to do - I even reinstalled all the intel and nvidia drivers (but we all know windows 10 is doing its own thing ) I grateful when someone could help me

Lenovo designed that processor to disable turbo boost when running CPU hungry applications(This can also be temparature limit or power limit throttling)....... If your temparatures are safe u can use the intel XTU utility to tweak the CPU to your needs.....  Link here... CheersKamal

Hi,So its difficult for me to pin down the problem here but I know that its not my Wi-Fi as i've had this issue at college and at various homes, cafes. I'll be browsing the internet when suddenly my thinkpad will disconnnect from the internet. Note, usually it will say that it is connected to the router but it isn't getting any connection. I will use another device at the same time that experiences no issues. When using Skype I lose calls frequently. It's dissapointing considering I dropped 1 grand on this laptop only to use my 100 dollar smartphone in many situations. Thoughts?

Hi jreder007 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
To start with I would suggest you try to check on the wifi adapter properties .
 
On Device manager , choose the wifi card and right click for Properties , Power management to uncheck on Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power .
Advance tab would also show Roaming tendency / aggressiveness that you can move to highest.
See if that would would , else you may proceed with uninstall and reinstallling your WIFI driver downloadable from the support site .
Update us how it works for you .

If you mean you have 2 drives, one hdd one ssd you dont need to defrag the ssd, just the hdd. BUT if you have an SSHD disk, a hybird, you HAVE to defrag it. There is NO ssd part that windows can "see". The drive *firmware* moves frequent used data to the ssd, much like the memory buffer. Imagine the SSHD as an HDD with a really big memory buffer
