Hi guys, During my purchase process the sales representative confirmed to me that using 2x DP to dual DP dongles the M720t could support 4 monitors. Now that the machine arrived I am only able to use 3 monitors. Chat again with another sales representative who told me cannot support 4 monitors. I enabled the IGD in the BIOS but no Multi-monitor support option. If I add a graphic card will I be able to use 4 monitors? Thanks!

Hi, after many hours of trying fix this laptop for gaming purposes I finally found the solution(s).Problem 1: Gaming starts with good framerate but suddenly lowers and stays low Explanation: The cpu has a power limit of 28 watts during the first few minutes of gaming, this gives good framerates. After time has passes and tempetures are rising to ~70 degrees (which is safe), the bios decides to cut the power to the cpu to 7 watts which is too low for gaming. Solution: Download throttlestop, this app allows you to take control over the cpu.First, undervolt, this will reduce your tempetures and improve fps, I currently have my CPU core/cache at -90mvAt this point you'll experience better fps but still lagSecondly, turn this setting on, you are going to need to install an additional file for this to work, this setting keep the cpu at 28 watts during sustained loads. (this will cause the laptop to run warmer ~80C on cpu). Please monitor tempetures with an app like HWinfo64. May void warranty.Gaming should be a lot better, but can be improved. Lets configure the GPU First, download MSI afterburner, this program allows you to configure your GPU.Secondly, undervolt the GPU, this reduces tempetures and keeps performance up. There are many guides online on how to do this, google "Laptop gtx 1050 undervolt".Thirdly change the driver options, see this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSVPZ9ON7zA&t=1s Problem 2: Keyboard feels laggy during gaming&nb...

I have an odd problem were the G700 takes 1 to 20 minutes to post/boot. 1.  Turn the G700 on.2.  The camera light goes on.3.  There is some fan noise.4.  Wait 1 to 20 minutes5.  Windows boot sequence kicks in.6. G700 runs as normal. I have booted to the usb UFEI and ran 5 hours of tests without issue.  Note it took about 10 minutes for the G700 to post/boot to USB drive. Booting to UFEi has the same issue.  Windows shutdown is fast.  No errors in the boot logs. I did perform a software reset to optimized default in bios but that did not solve the issue.  Attempted to reflash the bios, but there is only one version of the bios available and I did not figure out how to force a reflash over the same version.  Is there a way to had reset the bios via a pin? Any other thoughts on a resolution to this?

Greetings to all, I have a T-- 580 64 bit Windows 10. Microsoft update status pending download is stuck on  2018-11 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems (KB4467702). It has been this way for some time. How do I resolve this?  Thank you. 
Hello all, I purchased a New Hard drive and it is still not booting up. And I can't access bios or F2. On my desk top.?
 
I was looking at getting the X1 carbon (8650u, WQHD HDR, 16 GB, 1 TB) but then noticed that the X1 yoga in the same configuration is only about $100 more. I am a student so I feel like the touchscreen/stylus would come in handy, although I have never used a device like that. It seems like the trade offs are a slightly larger chassis, a bit of heft, and slightly reduced battery life, which I am willing to accept. My primary question is if there are any fatal QC flaws with the Yoga. I know about the fairly well-documented paint peeling on the Carbon, for example, but haven't heard of anything about the Yoga. It would be nice to see how the two compare thermally before purchasing. Is the Yoga any more or less serviceable than the Carbon? How do the keyboards compare? How does the glossiness of the HDR display compare on the two devices? Lastly would either of them have a better chance of having a Samsung SSD? I am also disappointed that these two computers have the old wifi chips. Is there still a whitelist? I can find aftermarket Intel 9560 with BT 5.0 for like $20, so I would be interested in dropping one of those in.

Hi, I keep getting this annoying pop-up: "Entry Point Not Found - The procedure entry point ucrtbase.terminate could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll".

I have run the System File Checker tool but everything came up clean: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

My Windows updates are up to date. I am running Windows 7 Professional.

Does anyone have a simple and straightforward solution to this issue as I'm not particularly tech-savvy?

Thanks in advance!
 
My Pro 2 has had it's fan stop functioning, and thus overheats after a while. I have tried replacing the fans with known working ones, both fans don't turn on. I have adjusted my power plan settings in Windows 10, downloaded the diagnostic tools from Lenovo and under fan it says "not available." Updated the BIOS, and in the bios i didn't find any settings for fans. I'm at a loss as to why this is happening. I double checked that both fans are indeed plugged in fully, not sure what else to do. Thank you
Thank you for viewing my post. The problem I am having is my Lenovo Yoga 710's start up/sign in screen glitches when I turn it on now. I noticed it started to do this yesterday, or maybe it was a few days ago. AKA, very recently. What I mean by "glitch" is that it likes to flicker from the image of the day background to a blank, black screen (indicating some kind of load?) and then back to the standard image of the day background. It happens fast, in a couple second intervals. It goes back and forth and does not stop until I click around an annoying amount to get the sign in bar to finally show up & stabilize, allowing me to type in my password and proceed from the ordeal. Once I am signed in, there are no problems otherwise (that I know of),  everything else runs beautifully. I will probably edit this post with an attached video. I just don't understand why this is happening, and if anyone has an idea how to fix this. It is not my laptop, entirely, I share it with my father. So I don't want him thinking that I did something horribly wrong to damage it, when whatever is happening seems like just an unattractive & annoying hiccup.
So i just bought a Lenovo Yoga 530 (Ryzen 3)  and it came with a little stylus (the box had the pen inside, and some other thing) but it insn't working at all, what do i need to do to set it up?
I have a Yoga 910 that will not boot, aparently due to a dead battery.  The battery has not been charging well for some time.  I thought it was the power adapter, so I replaced that and all was well for a couple of weeks.  But today the battery drained all the way and it will not boot.  When plugged in, the amber LED flashes.  When I press the power button, the LED on the power button comes on, keyboard light sup and the Lenovo logo screen comes up briefly, but then the system shuts down.  Based on another thread I tried unplugging it and holding down the power button for 60 seconds.  That did not have any effect - it is still behaving the same.  If I try to power it on without the power adapter connected, nothing happens - no LEDs on the power button or anything. Even if the battery is totally dead, shouldn't the laptop run with the power adapter plugged in?  I am using a standard Lenovo 45W USB-C power adapter.  I tried using a different (non-Lenovo) adapter, with the same results.  Would it run off AC power if I had a higher wattage adapter? I need to get it to boot for at least a few minutes so I can retrieve my daughter's homework off it.  After that I can take my time and get a replacement battery or whatever.  But I am amazed I can't get it to boot at all.  I used to operate ThinkPads with the battery totally removed and they ran fine.  Would it work if I remove the battery completely?...

Hey there. I'm struggling with an issue where I have some P50 and P51 laptops that are behaving extremely slow for no apparent reason. For example, when booting two P51 laptops, one (we'll call it system A) which has been recently imaged and the other (system B) has been in use for the last few weeks System A is almost fully booted by the time System B reached the log in screen. System A will boot in about 4 - 5 minutes, System B will boot in 8 - 9 minutes. However it's not just booting that is slow, simply using the computers can be a painfully slow experience. When viewing the event logs, System B is showing a lot of timeout events at startup (such as "A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Wcmsvc service to connect.") which seem to relate to drivers for non existant devices so I've gone in and uninstalled anything that isn't attached but this hasn't made any difference. Now, if I send system A out into the world to be used by a user, they will eventually come back to me complaining of it being extremely slow. It could be a few weeks, or just a few days. These users are not power users, they are typically using Word and Excel and some web browsing. Fairly typical and basic stuff. They are absolutely not going in and messing with system settings of any kind. System A and System B are imaged with the same configuration of Windows 10 1803. While they have 16B of ram, they are running with a 5400RPM drive. However, even with that dr... Read more
I'm not sure if this is a Windows 7 issue or the HP Envy 4502 issue. I have not printed pictures in a long time, just documents. I have about 8 pictures I need to print to send to my insurance company and I'm sure Walgreen's does not want to see these...nor do I want anyone but insurance to see them. So, when I choose a photo to print in the library it opens in Photo Viewer. I click print. An options window opens with the photographer in the middle....Here is the problem. I cannot see the options on the right side or bottom. There are a few options across the top, such as printer name and quality, I can see. If I change the paper size, I can see just a tiny bit more. I have tried all I know however, it is still the same. I really need all the options. Hope some knows what to do!

My printer is on the network. It's taking several minutes to print documents, doesn't matter the program or kind of document. Changing network cables didn't help. I can get on to network files and work in programs fine. Plugged my network cable into different computer and that computer printed fine. Seems problem is between my computer and printer. Any ideas?

Hey folks, I got the Yoga c930 and so far I'm loving it, save one issue--my shift key feels kind of loose (but sticky) and makes a different noise if you accidently hit it the wrong way.  Since it's not a pc-breaking issue, I don't want to have to send it in unless something else goes wrong, but I was wondering if anyone has tried any DIY maintenance on Yoga Keyboards.  I'm worried I might break a clip since even though their are videos for the Yoga 710 on YT, I don't know if they switched up the mechanism for this generation.  It sitll registers the click, so functionally--no issue, but it feels like a defective key that could just completely break out of the blue.                                                              
Hi All I'm confused about my options, I'm looking for around a 500Gb SSD. Can my 370 take both SATA and NVMe M.2 drives ? If both is it worth spending extra on a NVMe one ? Thanks.
This is an odd problem. I have a T440s that I dual-booted for years using ubuntu and windows 7. I never encountered any problems, nor did I know that the Windows partition, which was the default OEM install from Lenovo, was captured under bitlocker, as I had never activated bitlocker. About 5 months ago I became unable to boot this machine - the dreaded 4-beeps, which means TPM has died and it is unable to post. Fine, a new motherboard and I am back in business. Except... I'm not. The original drive was indeed set up for bitlocker even though I had never activated it from windows. Now the TPM it was tied to is totally dead, and I am unable to boot from the drive or bring up its partitions under ubuntu because it is "protected" by bitlocker, and there is no recovery password because I never set one up. So.. under normal circumstances, I would say oh well, reformat the drive and go on with my life just a tiny bit wiser. However, in my infinite wisdom I have overwritten a backup that had some old but cherished information. I am 90% sure it is resident on this unreachable Windows partition, and nowhere else. Normal un-bitlocking tools are useless. This sounds sketchy and it is exactly the situation MS sought to prevent by creating bitlocker in the first place. However, this protection mechanism is now preventing me from getting to my own data. I still have the old motherboard but it does not work. I would be grateful for any suggestions. thanks
Hello,

Here's what I've tried so far.

1.)Attempted to install the update manually.
2.)I've ran an sfc /scannow. It told me that it repaired some corrupted files.
3.) Tried the contents of the Software Distribution folder.

At least one other computer on my network was able to install this update successfully. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Hey, I was using my mobile hotspot to connect to the internet on my windows 10 samsung laptop, when out of no where it just stopped working, like I was in the middle of watching netflix and then the show just randomly stopped. It says I am still connected to the internet but when I try to browse on any website it says ?This site can not be reached? Ive done the diagnostics they say its nothing wrong, checked the LAN settings, nothing?s working can someone help please?
 
I go to windows update per usual, check for updates, but nothing regarding version 1809 shows up, and I confirmed in the about tab that I am on version 1803

As far as I can gather this update is out and only being blocked if you have iCloud or F5 VPN.

I do have Kaspersky Secure Connection. I am not sure if I have iCloud installed or not. Searching from windows explorer or the start menu for "iCloud" doesn't return anything.

Hello, I am an experienced user so don't be afraid to give me a complex solution. Now the problem: For a good reason I need to disable alt+F4 combination, that shuts down the current program. I've already tried using AutoKeyHotscript script, but it has problems:

It needs to be turned on every time I enter the computer
Sometimes it doesn't work when I'm playing demanding games or games, that build the combination into their functionality (For example Cities Skylines)
I am mainly troubled with the second problem. Anything I can do?
 
Hi all,
For the first time ever I've got a black screen, my Win 7 professional machine won't load. It's getting stuck on a black screen saying Windows Boot Manager. I can't do anything. I can't get it into safe mode (not that I would know what to do once in there anyway) and I don't have the installation disk.

The error code says Status: 0xc000000e Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

It was working last night. The only thing I did last night I can think of was took some photos off my old XP machine, put them onto an old USB stick (the only one the XP would recognise) and transferred them to the Win 7 desktop I use all the time. And before I did that I was also using my My Book external hardrive to look for lost photos (that I found on the XP). A couple of times the My Book wouldn't 'disconnect' properly and I just pulled it's USB cord out of the Win 7 machine....... ?? Maybe that is what has upset it ? I don't keep the My Book connected to the Win 7 machine. I use it purely to store photos on and disconnect it as soon as I've finished putting photos on it.

I've already tried googling this fault but I don't have the install disks and I don't know how to get into the Bios.

Can anyone help?
Thanks.
 
Under a 100% CPU load, the computer will freeze. This does not happen during gaming, as gaming does not push the 8750H to max load. I notice this mostly compiling programs in Linux (Manjaro, Kernel 4.19). However, I've also had the computer freeze under heavy CPU load in Windows as well. I'd rather not do an RMA for this laptop. Are there any solutions? Am I able to reseat the battery to solve this issue, or some similar fix? Is my battery incapable of delivering the requireing instantaneous power? Please help. 
Hi, I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (type 80AY, BY05331786) laptop. A week ago I bought the Lenovo Active Pen (Not the Active Pen 2).  I have trouble connecting the pen with my laptop. It does not connect to it nor does it even notice it. I activated the bluetooth on the laptop, tried updating the drivers... you name it. Even bought 2 different batteries, just to test if the pen even works. I tried installing some software that I found on the Windows store, but it is for the ActivePen2. Unfortunately i did not found any possible way to even know if the pen works or not. Any ideas?  
I just received X1 Extreme.Everything works fine and as expected, but there is one thing that keeps bugging me.It's a weird little electric noise X1E makes. Here is the electric noise.I am not sure what causes this noise but I think this happens when the fan starts running.I don't think the laptop should make this kind of noise since there is no HDD, CD, or other parts that makes noise other than fan.And fan should not make those electric noise. Also, I noticed that there is little rattling sound (only noticable when I put my ears very close to bottom of laptop). The elctric sound happens when heavy-loading and the rattling sound is unnoticeable.But I am worried if there is some malfunctioning hardware in my laptop. Does anyone have similar issue? Is this normal?

diskchk and sfc /scannow  but have not had any luck. Could it be that the 4MB of RAM to install these larger/later in the year monthly rollups? Here is a portion of the WindowsUpdate.log:
