Heya, so for a while I have been having issues with my computer where my games randomly freeze and stop responding for a few seconds. And when it happens, my computer thinks that I am still inputting something. For example, if I hold w to walk forward in a game and it freezes, it will continue to hold w for me Here is a picture of my task manager when it happens. When the game stops responding/freezes is when the massive drop is in the CPU. The same drop in the GPU.
I have a Yoga 700-IS4K. A few weeks ago, when I attempted to turn it on, the screen remained blank and it emitted a loud beeping noise which continued until I held down the power button to forcefully turn off the laptop. The problem is exactly as described in this other forum post concerning the same laptop, the 700-IS4K.  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Lenovo-Yoga-700-turning-on-with-a-black-sc... There is also a YouTube video demonstrating this problem, again on precisely the same model.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwoJXzyFmh4 Maddeningly, this doesn't happen all the time; sometimes the laptop starts up just fine. However, it's been happening more and more frequently and its clear that the laptop soon will not turn on at all.  I have already tried re-seating and cleaning the electrical contacts on the RAM chip without success. I think it made the problem happen less frequently, but that could be my imagination. Has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it successfully, or know what causes it? I hate to junk a laptop less than three years old (my other laptops have lasted over twice that long) and it's unlikely I'll buy or recommend Lenovo again if this turns out to be unsalvagable. 
Sorry, guys, but I can't make even 1%
starter sense out of anything about
Windows 'workgroup' "file and printer

I've been working on this for 10 hours a
day for four days, clicked thousands of
times, but at this point have exactly
nothing in results or understanding.  I've
been in computing for a long time,
designed a commercial programming
language, published in artificial
intelligence, and understand things at
various levels, but I can make no sense at
all out of Windows workgroup sharing.

About all I know to do is just f'get about
it and conclude that my Windows computers
can do well connecting to the Internet but
just will NOT share files or printers as
has been common back maybe 30 years.  It
looks like file sharing on a local area
network is soon to be forbidden?  Really?

I have two computers, an HP laptop with
Windows 10 Home Edition and a computer I
built from an AMD FX-8350 processor with
Windows 7 64 bit Professional SP1 with at
least one of the additional updates.

Both computers are connected via 1 Gbps
Ethernet cables to a Sagecom router and
from there through a cable modem to my
Internet service provider (ISP).

My router is 'managed' by my ISP, and they
have assured me that they have set my
router so that I can do "file and printer
sharing" and that the setup is standard,
common, and easy.  So, maybe the router is
cooperating.  And I have some more hints

Hello, I have a Dell U2412M monitor that I wanted to connect to my PS4. Since the monitor does not have an HDMI connection and only support VGA, DVI-D and DisplayPort, I bought a GE 33588 HDMI to VGA Adapter. The problem is that it does not detect the PS4 and I don't know if it is because of the compatibility. I tried to connect the VGA cable with the adapter to my Asus X555LAB and it worked perfectly fine, so the problem is not the VGA cable nor the adapter. Thank you for your time.
Hi, On my M91P I accidentally deleted all partitions on the HDD, and there's no getting them back. I installed a two-year-old clone drive, loaded data backups and am running okay, but I would like to do a fresh install of Windows 10 onto the original drive. Before the crash I D/L'd Windows 10 with this machine and put it on a flash drive. It booted fine on an HP Stream 14 and, after some issues, succesfully loaded the op sys on that machine. However, when I try to do the same now on the Lenovo, I get this error: "Looking for NTFS EFI loader. FAIL--Could not open NTFS volume [3] unsupported." Any ideas? Thanks. Machine type & model 7052A7USerial # MJFKPBWBIOS date 07/11/2011, revision level 9HKT43AUS, boot block revision level 9H43A
A few w eeks ago, I installed Apache Open Office, replacing libre office, it won't open automatically. I can click on the icon and the documents will open, but I don't know how to specify which type of file to have it open when trying to set it as default.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I want to do zero out my hard disk
I have recently been gifted a brand new ASUS Prime B450m-A mb, a Ryzen 5 processor, Corsair Vengeance LPX ram sticks (DDR4 @ 2400 MHz, and a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vc. Problem is that this new hardware isn?t compatible with a Windows 7 OS. This issue wasn?t thought of before hand.

I have successfully set up the new guts and had no issues with firing it up until I left the BIOS. That?s when I discovered through research that this new hardware doesn?t support a Windows 7 OS. None of the ports are supported. I have no mouse or keyboard outside of BIOS. Nor do I have mouse and keyboard function in any form of safe mode. Of course, this was unexpected and regarded as a ?wtf??

I am unable to progress forward from there on.

My current OS is on an SSD.

I?m wondering if I got a new SSD with a new OS of Windows 10 and replace the old SSD with the newly formatted SSD would it alleviate my issue so I can have full operation of my PC?
Does anyone know if this specific Lenovo models SSD drive is removable/upgradable ? I know Lenovo sometimes solders hd to the main board to prevent this and couldn't find anything specific online for this model which says either way Lenovo S130-1N81J2001NAU

Did I miss anything here? can someone will help me with this
Hello Dear tech guy experts

recently I got a fake USB from ebay, it shows storage size of 250GB while in real it's only 16.7GB

here is how I know it is only 16.7GB I test it with H2testw .. only the first 55GB still enough to let me know only 16.7GB are ok. I even make sure of it and coped 25GB on it .. only the first 16GB are readable the rest is corrupted.

my Question is how to Undo the Fake size and make the drive shows it's real size.?

I found a video on youtube called How to Make a Fake 1TB Flash Drive - Terabyte, it looks like a manipulation of how to read the drive.

That mentioned I was earlier trying to recover some files I deleted and thinking of how recovery software works and is it possible that every time we delete a file, the file still their only been masked from us to see. and if this is the case then could we do that on purpose ! to mask files from being seen in order to protect them. and if it's possible, what is the best way to mask and unmask the files and directories with the same way this USB drive show fake storage size.

my other question in short, is there a way to show empty drive while it has data? and how to uncover the masked data!

one thing lead to another It would be great security for the data to be hidden that way, I tried many hide and luck files and folders but non of them are satisfying.
The screen on my Lenovo Y50 appears extremely pale compared to other displays. Black appears grey and this noticeably reduces the image quality. I'm assuming the on-board graphic chip uses limited RGB range since I've had this issue before on my desktop PC. But this doesn't seem as easy to solve in this case. I've been trying to get a grip on it for hours, but no chance. Lenovo Y50Intel i7-4720HQ 2,60GHzNvidia GeForce GTX 960M 2GB16GB RamWindows 10 Home 64bitIntel Driver: I connected my acer monitor to the laptop with HDMI to test the effect. It resulted in a pale, limited colour profile on the external screen, too. So it's probably a driver problem etc, nothing with the screen itself. In the Intel graphics settings under  Display > General Settings > Extended   I was able to solve problem on the large monitor by extending the RGB range. For the laptop, however, it says: "This display does not support advanced settings." and so I cannot extend RGB range. To be frank, I just got the laptop and so I haven't seen the screen "do any better than this" so far. But since it really annoys me and impacts visibility and image quality, I really just can't imagine that this is the way things are supposed to look! It looked better from what I could see on photos or video reviews. Thank you.

Flavallee mentioned although W7 suppport officially ends in 2020, there may be unofficial support until 2021.
Does this mean that W7 will be secure until 2021 ? Would I have to change the microsoft antivirus (MSE) if I continue use W7 ?

Hello, community!  I have an interesting one for you. As this audience knows, the Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB notebook has two discrete ThunderBolt 3 ports.  Since purchasing the unit in late Fall 2018, I have exclusively used a Monoprice Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station (Model 29435) to power and charge the computer.  The Monoprice dock supplies up to 60W of power to the computer for charging, and has worked out as a great desktop solution via a single, 0.5 m Thunderbolt 3 cable. This week, I introduced a QNAP TS-453BT3 Thunderbolt NAS and connected this via a 0.8 m cable to the second Thunderbolt 3 port on the computer.   The QNAP Thunderbolt ports use Thunderbolt Networking (and a Link Local IPv4 address in the range) to enable a direct access connection to the file shares.  While not a 40 Gbps line rate, I do get 150 to 250 MB/s transfer rates which is good enough for live editing of media, encoding, etc. with bandwidth to spare on the Thunderbolt bus for the peripherals on my Thunderbolt Dock.  It works really great! Unfortunately, there is a problem with charging.  It seems the NAS also supplyies power to the computer as it shows a "charging" icon on the battery indicator on the taskbar when it is plugged in.  However, it is, clearly, not capable to supply the appropriate amount of power (probably intended for USB-C charging) as the readout indicates, "Plugged-in, Discharging," upon cable&n...

I bought a refurb T440S maybe 9 or 10 months ago from Newegg.  When I did, I took it out of town with me for work for a couple months (which burned through the majority of its short 3-month warranty period).  This issue started happening back then, but I didn't have the time to deal with it, so now that I'm well out of warranty with the vendor I purchased it from, I'm wondering if others have had the same issue (as it's gotten much worse recently). Basically after a month or two of flawless use, the laptop would stop detecting when I plugged the charger in.  When it did properly detect that I'd plugged the charger into the charge port, it charged both batteries just fine.  I thought it was maybe a physical/solder joint issue, as I could move/wiggle the charge plug to a point where it would just stay connected.  It was a nuisance, but it still eventually would charge, if I placed the charging plug in just the right spot; so I just dealt with the nuisance. Lately, the laptop doesn't want to detect the charge plug at all.  I dual-boot (linux/windows), and the charging issues are much more common when using linux, but the issue does still happen in both OS's.  Essentially, if and when I get the charger to work, I'll get the standard power LED blinking, telling me that it's charging....followed by any short amount of time, where it'll be back to trying to run on battery power, even though it's still plugged in. It's not the same pr...

I went to change my boot option in the bios to boot off dvd. Restarted pc and pc hanged on press f2 and del key. Turned pc off and then Removed all SATA devices and then turn pc back on and bios had said it detected my Samsung SSD and another seagate hard drive. Though these are not physically connected so not sure how I can be accessing the drive, the data on my hard drives. Booted into Windows and was able to browse the internet. I then shut down pc and found the DVD drive was faulty as I tested each sata drive. Reconnected my sata hdds. Still in the bios it only detects the two fake Samsung C: 476GB and Seagate D: 2794 GB hard drives. It does not see any of my other hard drives installed in the bios. I had clear cmos and removed the bty to no avail. I tested my Samsung SSD on another pc and created a file so when I booted the pc with the drive the file came up which is how I know its booting off the hard drive and not the virtual drive. I also swapped the drives on different sata connections to no avail. Right now I can access all of my hard drives in Windows though for two drives, Samsung and Seagate drive sill come... Read more
I recently bought a new jack microphone to stream with. While the microphone works perfectly in Skype, everywhere else it has very weird volume changes.
If I keep the microphone about 5 cm away from my mouth my voice is almost inppossible to hear, while if i put it closer by 1 cm, there is a huge volume boost and everything works perfectly. I know for sure that the microphone works, because I tried it with my phone, and, again with Skype, without any problems.
I also tried updating the drivers, as well as disabling all the Windows enhancements, but the problem persists

Hi, i buy a wireless card. Before i used the FRU list part for my Lenovo E540, and the list say i can upgrade to Intel Wilkins Peak 2 7260 2*2 11ac+BT4.0 HMC Module, So i found the Intel Wireless 7260HMW. I buy this, i instales and boom, black screen with the error...  
BlueTooth worked fine with Windows 7, I upgraded to Windows 10 and now it isn't working properly. Instead of a specific driver listed, it's driver is stated as "Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator" and "Thinkpad Bluetooth 3.0 (Manufacturer: Broadcom, Location: Port_#0004.Hub_#0003)" Both are stated they are working properly but if they were my device would connect.  BTW, yes it's on and this has been cycled using function + F5. Cheers
