Hello, I'm new here, and I recently downloaded bluestacks as a way to still contact my friends on kik, considering that my phone just broke. It loads fine, but once the screen pops up to log into google, the screen gets warped and cut off, and it appears to be two screens overlapping. I have no Idea what to do, and I'v looked over Bluestack's forums, and I've even tried contacting them myself, but to no avail. Somebody please help, because if not, then I'm out of luck.

Hi,im pretty sure that this will lead to a run of the mill RMA but id like to skim for easier solutions first. The problem is simple: i have a about 1x1cm large dead spot in the touchscreen of my brand new T480s.It is located in the lower left corner and prevents me from clicking on the windows home button. I'd appreciate any input or solutions. Thanks for the effort in advance!
Hello, My Yoga 900 laptop screen is flickering on and off. And I can confirm that my screen is actually working, and my drivers as well (when I connect it to a monitor it works). But very often when it is sitting on a table, or if I have it on my lap. The screen starts flickering or just goes black. I have to give the laptop several 'shakes' and then carefully rest it on a surface multiple times for the screen to get going again.  What's happening? Any help is much appreciated!  
Hi, I'm runnig a N20p CB since 2015 ... always very satisfied with performance. 2 weeks ago it came up with "Chrome OS is missing ..." error on startup. Tried recovery with 2 different USB sticks: every runs as expected (preparation of recovery stick, CB is recognising stick, trying to reinstall OS, removing stick, reboot) but error will not be solved and bootong does not proceed. Preesing "TAB" shows "0x5b no bootable kernel found on disk", dev_boot_usb and dev_boot_legacy are both set to 0. Suppose it could be a SSD problem (boot sector corrupt?), but SSD is fixed on the mainboard. Did not activate developer mode befor error occured ... Is there any other way of accessing the system:- flash new BIOS- repair SSD without repairing OS first- boot from USB with different OS Thanks for any support! 
Hello Everyone. I'm from Turkey. I'm an architecture student and I usually use a laptop for the purposes like 3d, 2d modelling, animations, creating my digital art, game design, music producing and many others. I have a dell laptop but I can do really few with it. The other day ? saw a friend of mine with a yoga notebook, I was totally amazed with it. Especially the touch screen that I could do my sketches on. But when I asked about the price it was way over my budget. I am a 20 year old who really loves creating and learning, which I think the best things to do in this short lifes that we have. I really don't know for how long I should waste my time working and saving money to get a laptop which is good enough to externalize my ideas. I could really really use that kind of a laptop for my educatinal and professional life. Can you send me a yoga laptop and help me create my very own content freely?
Hi, everyone. I am new here. I hope everyone is having an awesome day! I have an issue that is actually my friend online's issue. Her name is Sharky! We all call her than because she always appears and disappears out of nowhere on the Disqus forum all the time, lol. But we do talk all the time.

This is her issue. I have copied and pasted what she told me here. This is how she explained it to me. I have never heard of this problem before. If you all need any more info I will ask her. But this is basically all that she has explained to me. Any help would be really appreciated. The main problem this causes is she can't type her words properly or they disappear when she's typing, or they go missing. And she looks down when she types, so she can't see what's on her screen unless she looks up.

It's very frustrating for her. She is very smart, and prides herself on good grammar and spelling, and this issue causes her posts to look messy and she has to keep editing them all the time. Please and thank you all so much! -Singaling

"Anyway, what happens is this - the edges of the window I'm using will blink, as if a window from the back is trying to come forward. But it happens even when I only have only one window open. But when that blink happens it's a disconnect because that's when whatever I'm typing skips letters, words, spaces.

We have a HP laptop that is slow booting up and when you try to using it everything seems slow. My wife uses Word and Excel on Office 360 and these documents take an age to open correctly.

Is there anything I can check to see if everything is working as it should be?

Sorry to sound vague but I don't know how best to describe the problem.

Good morning,
The company I work for has a VPN that allows me to enable the VPN on my Windows 10 computer at home and once enabled I can access everything on the Office network, as if I was sitting at my desk.

What needs to be done to allow the exact opposite.

I want to be sitting at my desk and open a VPN to my home network, and access files at home, including my NAS, from work.

Please advise.

I am using windows 10, I have been working on a word doc for weeks deadline now. I saved it and switched my comp off (No, I didn?t back it up. Yes I?m a complete a-hole) upon switching my computer on the next morning the file was gone. Three shortcuts displayed a notification informing me that the shortcut has been changed, moved or deleted. I have spoken to Microsoft who told me it was not their problem. I have spoken to one professional who informed me I was dumb and should have backed it up and another that took remote access of my computer searched recovered auto save files, ran a recovery program searching for deleted file... he spent over an hour and said he?s never seen anything like it before it?s like the file never existed..... please please please can someone help me
Dear all, I am facing an issue with my T480. It seems that since 1-2 weeks (since the latest bios upgrade done with Lenovo Vantage I guess, it could be the BIOS Update 10[64] V1.17.1.10) the suspension does not work anymore. What happens is that when I close the display, or when I hit the suspension button on a USB keyboard, the laptop goes to suspension correctly. The power light starts the usual "dimmered on and off". But then if I open the display again, nothing happens. If I press the power button, nothing happens. T restart the machine I had to keep pressed the power button for 10 seconds, and restart with a cold boot. Did anyone had the same issue recently? Regards, Paolo

I am looking to do a clean install of Windows 10 Home the next time my system crashes. I have Intel (IRST, Wireless Card, and Bluetooth) components and Realtek components (Card Reader, ethernet, and HD audio). As I understand, I have to download those drivers separately? Also, If I reformat my drive using the media creation tool, will my drive lose its hybrid capabilities?

So I turned on my laptop, logged in with my password and the second after that it started to made really loud noises and probably woke up everyone in the house... It kinda sounded like a lawnmower, or a car engine. Don't know an exact example of the sound but it sounded horrible and I knew something was wrong. My laptop made noises in the past, usually it would be randomly detecting a CD when nothing was put in, and sometimes that triggered the CD port to open. This time, however, the weird sound was constant and didn't get quieter over time. I waited for a bit to see if it would stop, but after 5 minutes decided to turn it off because it just wouldn't. I feared it would explode! Luckily, the noise stopped when it was completely turned off. After a bit, I turned it on again, to see if the same thing occurs twice, but no, it didn't. As always, the only thing I could hear was a pretty loud fan.

I have no idea nor any specific computer knowledge of what could be wrong with my laptop at this point. =(
The computer is 3,5 years old. Were problems like this supposed to happen eventually? Should I just buy a new one, or at least think about it?

hi there,

for the last year or so ive had stuttering problems with my pc, many times I've thought i've pinpointed the problem and "solved" it, unfortunately even tho these changes have helped my pc they have never fully fixed my problem. The thing that i have found that has most helped is uninstalling my display drivers and then re-installing and even if it doesn't fix it the first time it will eventually fix it if i keep doing this process. unfortunately this issue doesn't stay unresolved as any update of windows or drivers or if anything goes wrong in my pc and i have very often it reverts the fix and then i have a very laggy and stuttery desktop. ive replaced a lot of my hardware as well during this time and the only things left to replace is motherboard and cpu. i also run (free) anti-malware every time this problem happens and it never picks up anything to major or anything that fixes the issue.

Hello Guys,

I am facing a very strange issue. I am not able to connect to the FTP Site using work PC but able to connect to it using my home PC. I have taken the following steps to resolve the issue:

1. Reboot the COMCAST Business Gateway (from SMC Networks)
2. Verified that no firewall is enabled to block the access
3. Contact COMCAST to verify if their equipment configured correctly, and COMCAST verified that it is configured correctly
4. Contact the FTP Site Hosting Company, they responded that since you are able to access out FTP Site using your home PC so therefore there seems to be no issue
5. Also verified that the our WAN Internet IP Address is NOT on any Blacklist.

This is a very strange issue and need guidance.

So I've got a broken X1 Carbon 4th Gen with a severely worn serial label.  The laptop is unable to power on after running completely out of battery and shutting off once.  When plugging in the AC adapter the power light simply turns orange.  When trying to start the laptop it simply shows the Lenovo logo for less than a second before turning back off. As I am completely unable to read the serial number off the laptop in any way am I simply out of luck?  I am pretty sure the unit is in warranty but without the serial number the Lenovo reps won't really help us do anything.  If we can get the unit to power on I'm sure we can grab the serial number off of the BIOS, but no luck there.
Yesterday morning, my laptop won't turn on, I tried to press the power button along with plugging the power cord. Nothing happens or change. A few hours or so, the laptop suddenly seems to be working perfectly fine, can charge and turn on. However, one time my laptop's heat was drastically accumulating and then turned off by itself. So, I left it open to cool down. Next time I use it, can't turn on anymore. Overheat that damaged something in my laptop? I have no idea. Any help I would appreciate.
After i use my bluetooth headphones my laptop speaker wont work. When the sound goes it's as if I have no speakers there isn't any bar indication on the volume at all, unlike when you test it with a system sound and there is that green gague.

I disconnected my headphones still doesn't work then i reconnected the bluetooth headphones and that works but not on the speaker on my laptop.... Help!

Are there any tried and true tips for exending battery life?  It seems the battery drops another 20% overnight if I put the 920 in sleep mode.  It does a little better if I shut it down, but who wants to do that?  Are there apps that others have found to be part of the problem?

Context: I'm not a newbie but far from a pro. Small business situation.

I'm trying to set up a PPTP VPN on a pretty bare bones Windows Server 2008 R2, connect to it from Win10 machine and map a shared folder on the server as a networked drive.

I can RDP into the server, Network Policy & Access is running, user is set up with dial-in network access permission, I think the right ports are being forwarded - physical networking might be the problem (Comcast into a Netgear C3000 into a Linksys router.)

I'm basically out of googling skills, could use some solid input into what I should look at.

Can somone from Lenovo comment on a fix for the mic jack issues.  Is this a known issue or could I have a problem with my particular machine? To me it seems to be software related.  Drivers from lenovo site: sound works but mic does not.  Drivers from realtek site: mic seems to work but the audio is bazaar. One side plays on headset the other on laptop speakers.  Windows self installed drivers: same as lenovo drivers. I need to be able to use a head set with this laptop please.....
Apologies in advance if this isnt in the correct thread as im somebody with very little knowledge on how computers work as far as security. It seems my computer has been infiltrated by someone with access to the Wi-Fi's admin account. I purchased this laptop
awhile ago as NEW. Never had a problem until I noticed strange things occurring on MY laptop. Being the only account (admin rights, etc.), I seem to not have "admin access" to edit MY own files & file locations, properties, even permissions to
change anything that would help free myself of this hacker. After exploring through my computer, getting familiar with navigating it in an attempt to discover what is wrong, I found an article online describing EXACTLY what's going on. Although I cant seem
to find a solution or steps to take in reversing this & protecting myself from this occurring in the future. Ill provide the link to the site that i consulted & maybe that'll help you understand what I mean exactly. Thanks a MILLION IN ADVANCE!
please respond asap
I'm using a Corsair Vengence K70 (CH-9000050-UK) and running Windows 10. When trying to set the backslash key as a keybinding in League of Legends or Warframe nothing happens. It is not previously bound to another action and the game continues to wait for me to input another key.

This is a UK layout with the "\|" key situated between Shift and Z and it should be noted that the key works just fine in most applications. Note: The backslash IS a valid keybinding in these games, this seems to be an issue specific to my setup.

I had thought to rebind the key in the Registry by using "SharpeKeys" which I have previously used to disable Caps Lock. Heres what happened:

I used the "type key" option to find the current scan code for the "\|" key. The Scan code came up as "ISO Extra Key (00_56)". This appears to be nonstandard however I successfully rebound the key. However, for some reason, these games do not recognize the new keybindings. As if they have their own keymap.

I'm pretty sure I could use something like AutoHotKey to achieve the effect I want but I am worried it could be detected as an attempt to cheat and get me banned from the games. At this point even if there is no solution to get the key to work I would be interested if anyone could shed some light on why something so simple isn't working in the first place.

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to help.
I?m running windows 10 and whenever I try to plug in my Ethernet cord it says connected but no access. Steam still signs me in sometimes and my computer says that the Ethernet is working properly. The thernet cord also works on other computers so it isn?t the physical cord. My WiFi adapter stopped working also, doesn?t even show up on device manager.ive tried all the CMD prompts and troubleshooting. It won?t let me connect to the internet.
New computer builder here.

Built a desktop following closely with Carey's Fall 2016 Gaming Computer Build video (great walkthrough by the way).

Intel i5-6600k
Corsair 8gb DDR4 2666mhz
Corsair CX750 PSU
EVGA Geforce GTX 960
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

Worked fantastic for a year almost exactly. Then one evening the computer restarted. Rebooted. Then died. The mobo power led stayed lit but would not turn on. No fans. No post. No anything.

I assumed power supply. Bought an EVGA 500W to troubleshoot. No change.

After checking each component, removing all peripherals, and just trying to get a boot I finally sent the mobo back on RMA. They swapped it. I installed the new one. Used the Corsair 750 power supply. Heard a pop on power up. And now same result. No boot.

Did I make a fatal mistake using the original PSU. Or could some other component be frying this mobo?

Extremely frustrating.

Today when I tried to play some audio, (MP3 and Wav files), the file began to play and was okay for about a minute and a half then there was a buzz and a window popped up that said "the specified format is not supported or cannot be translated....". I was using XMPlay I then tried to play other mp3 files and a WAV file. They didn't play at all, I simply got the error message.
I tried playing files using another player, AIMP3 v 3.60 build 1470. They wouldn't play at all with this player and I got the same error message.

I have been listening to these files with no problem for months. I searched online for any messages pertaining to this problem. Most results were over ten years old and often pertained to video issues.

I then went back and tried to play the file again, (I didn't reboot), and they're now playing! Can anyone suggest what may be going on? Is my hard drive failing or are files being corrupted? Thanks. I'd appreciate any help. I listen to audio files throughout the day while working and this would be a big problem if I couldn't listen to them anymore.

I recently followed a page explaining how to speed up my computer which has slowed down a lot in the past year. After disabling Auto manage paging file size for all drivers and setting the custom size for both initial and maximum to the recommended number below the Total paging size for all drivers list. It told me to reset my laptop so I did and then I got a BSOD Error message saying CRITICAL_SERVICE_FAILED. I tried to refresh through the startup repair options. The laptop was stuck finalising file restore and then shut down. Since then Whenever I turn on the laptop it begins the preparing automatic repair screen then goes black. Nothing happens after this on screen. The Harddrive begins to make a stuttering grinding noise. The laptop is an Acer Aspire V3-551G running windows 10.

Is there any way I can fix this or should I just start saving for a new laptop now?

Hi, my Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series will not boot. When I press the power button, I hear a clicking sound, the LED light flashes once. I?ve tried booting without the battery, booting without the charger and nothing works. I?ve even tried draining it?s residual power and same outcome.
I was playing a couple days ago, and my game froze (as it?s been doing lately) upon forcibly ending the game my whole computer froze. When I restarted the computer, I entered the boot loop. What happens in the boot loop is my keyboard and power butto lights up, and the screen turns on. Top left of the screen a little square similar to the cursor of a command prompt sometimes appears before immediately disappearing and displaying ?Lenovo.? Around 40 seconds later the computer turns off, and turns itself back on displaying ?Lenovo? and the process repeats indefinetly. Aside from the one game freezing often, I have experienced no issues lately aside from possible performance issues in games. I have made no upgrades in more than a year, aside from a headphone driver, and have never had this happen before.To the best of my knowledge seeing as I can?t run the computer I have default product parts, while upgrading the hardrive to ssd, and changing (4+2) ram to (4+8). My ultrabay is using a second gpu (GT750M5) and I am running windows 10. I have made multiple attempts to diagnose the problem. Since the reboot loop happened immediately after I restarted it from a freeze, I didn?t think it was hardware, but I checked anyway. I drained the leftover power by holding the power button with the battery and AC adapter removed, I removed the Ultrabay GPU, I reset both sticks of RAM, and the SSD. I also tested each ram stick individually with the gpu removed, and ... Read more

Windows 10 Home 64-bit, was 1803, upgraded to 1809.  am thinking of doing a Windows reset to fully eliminate software.  have checked BIOS settings as well.  removed Microsoft ACPI, Lenovo Vantage, etc to no effect.  if I remove the plug, power goes down.  when I plug back it, it stays static, but does not charge up.  started about 4 days ago and I feel it will eventually get to zero.  have tried different power bricks to no effect.   should I take into a service center?  pic and battery report attached.    
My X1 Tablet wil no longer react to the power button, meaning I cannot press it to put the tablet to sleep. I've checked all the usual settings in win10 (power and sleep) and it's set to make my tablet sleep no matter which button is pressed. What's worse, if I put the tablet to sleep from the start button, then the power button cannot wake it up. However, if the tablet is powered off, the power button works fine, so it seems to be a software issue. I've all the various firmwares, windows 10 is up to date as of today and the BIOS settings doesn't seem to have any options for this. Has anyone else experienced this and did you find a solution?
