Yoga 720 121KBi7-75008.00 GBX64Windows 10Most recent update (as of this posting) 2019-02 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.7.2 for Windows 10 V 1809 for x64 (KB4486553) Synopsis: I bought this 720 from Lenovo - directly - and through the Zibby payment system. This was an excellent way for me to get the device I wanted while paying a bit of extra interest. The date is 3.23.2019. My final payment to Zibby was posted 3.21.2019 My warranty expires 3.23.2019 - today. Upon booting up this evening to watch a movie with my wife two things become apparent. The touchscreen has stopped working entirely and the volume of the audio has become extremely quiet - to the point where the movie we are starting is unwatchable (Office Space). I mean, c'mon - I'm not gonna watch this gem in sub-par conditions. I've also noticed that the options under the enhancements tab in the audio device settings screen have gone away. All I see there is a check box to enable/disable all audio effects - quite the far-cry from what I'm used to seeing on that screen. I find this to be... Extremely convenient - I MEAN COME ON!! You couldn't make this $41T up. I'm wondering if anyone else has run into a situation like this. They want to send me a box to ship my laptop to them with an expected turnaround time of 9 days. Nine days. 12345678 NINE days without the one thing that I use to make money every day of the week - and they're offering zero reimbursement or lo... Read more
Hello, I've had my laptop roughly two years. Early on when I purchased I was experiencing issues with the screen "blinking" or flashing at random.  I called customer support at least two times, which should be documented, and there was never a warranty repair. They updated drivers and said call us back if it keeps happening. Screen is beginning to flash/blink and making the laptop unusuable at times. I can not seem to find any way to contact someone, nor can I find a local support center that could repair this...  If someone could PLEASE contact me to correct this it would be greatly appreciated. I'm very disappointed that this is happenening after trying to address this so long ago.
I am not able to get sound on my tablet. I tried to download driver, but it doesn't have anything to drive.
I've had my T530 for a while, and I've recently started connecting to the internet using an ethernet cable to try and speed up my connection. However, since earlier today or yesterday, if I unplug the ethernet cable I can't connect via WiFi (the WiFi radio doesn't show up when I press Fn+F5 either). I'm not quite sure what is happening, and any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I recently signed-up for the windows insider program and when i updated to build 1903 lenovo software stoped working on my device inclouding the drivers for my fingerprint reader and the system inerface foundation V2 Devices for the Lenovo Vantage App.I looked up online and saw that the only way to fix it is by going back to the previuse version of windows, the problem is that i don't have any recovery from an older version of windows and restoring my device is not an option.even trying to opt-out of the insider program by signing-in to my microsoft account won't let me because windows Hello is not working (obviosly...why would it work if there's not fingerprint reader working).is there anything else i can do to fix this issue or to downgrade to a normal  1809 version without loosing all my files???
Sorry,my English is not good. I have a T480 with a SSD and a HDD. I heard that APS driver pushes by Windows Update on T480,but I didn't receive it. May it caused by dual hard drives? The driver on Lenovo website doesn't support T480.
Hi all,

I have a P750 with Windows 7 that intermittently turns ON and OFF by itself. Sometimes it will just quickly turn ON/OFF others it will completely boot up and then turn OFF. Have only noticed this when the lid is not closed.

Any ideas what might be causing this would be appreciated.


I need to have multiple logins to a website.
The website is https://prod.uhrs.playmsn.com/Judge/Views/LogIn
It automatically logs in my first email. So I tried to add the second one by deleting everything, then adding the second address. Then I couldn't get the sign in for the first.
How can I get it so that it asks me which account instead of just arbitrarily logging me in?
Hi everyone!

I?m just doing a file sorting for old desktop computer which will ?resigning? and plan to use old computer as part of network which I can use new Win 10 Desktop tower and access old computer occessional time (when I need the files to take from network, wont be on alltime)

I just had a thought, I realised the computer can?t live forever however I?ve been occasionally using computer for website design and media works, but that?s stopped now as I resigned as part of charity.

The old computer health looks good and about every two to three years - I give a deep hardware maintance such as all parts removed and dusted and removed it CPU fan and replace thermal paste to keep things running smoothly.

The thing is I have some media that i?d like to keep it for a while. I know some hard drive can?t live longer. I don?t think chkdsk will help with that. I wonder if there are software which will tell me how the healthy are hard drive?

Many thanks.
I just got the computer yesterday, and I notice that the computer's camera has these little grey flickering lines whenever I have the camera set to horizontal. I've updated to the latest drivers however the issue is still persistant, even after reinstalling the drivers. Also, within camera apps (Duo on the web, and the Camera app on Windows), the camera footage seems to suddenly freeze up when the camera is set to horizontal
So I have a new T580 laptop; I ordered it with one 512GB NVME drive (turned outto be a WD SN720) in the drive caddy; I also added a second 512GB NVME drive (WD SN520) in the WWAN slot. I know others here have done this before; I was wondering about the thermals for the WWAN slot NVME drive. I can see that the drive caddy provides significant cooling to the drive there; in contrast the drive I added in the WWAN slot does not have any heatsink attached. I worry if the thermals could become an issue under moderate load ? Also as I know others have asked before: each mounting locations (drive caddy and WWAN slot) are only getting x2 PCIE 3.0 lanes. This is on a T580 without any added dGPU, in case people wondered if that made a difference.
Hello everyone!

I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I'm having. I just built my first PC, specs below, but I don't really know what I'm doing. Surprisingly, everything has gone amazingly well! The system is stable after some brief benchmarking, I've played some games on it, temperatures look great!

Except for one thing: Whenever my PC goes into sleep mode, I have a rough time connecting to the websites when it wakes up. This also happens if I restart the computer, but not if I power off and then turn it back on (Edit: Sometimes it happens when I power on). When it works, it works very well for an unlimited amount of time so long as I don't interrupt the pc by turning it off, putting it to sleep, or resetting it! But after waking form sleep it's like it only half connects to web pages. It might connect but elements won't load. Or it might not connect at all and the page just times out.

It's only happening on this PC and it's happening in all web browsers I've tried (Edge, Chrome, Firefox). If anyone can help me I'd very much appreciate it! Please remember that I really don't know what I'm doing as I have no mentor to help me and so have had to jump into this by myself.

Some things I've tried:
I've gone into the settings in the device manager and set the Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller to not turn off the device to save power.
in Networking, I've selected change adapter sett... Read more
So I had bought a 1tb m.2 SSD for my laptop and wanted to use it as a boot drive. I downloaded macreum reflect (sorry for misspelling program name) to copy everything to my SSD and when I tried to restart after I copied everything it used my hard drive as defauly boot and I just unplugged my hard drive completely for a while and it worked perfectly fine. Today I went to finish the job of formatting my hard drive completely to use it as local storage. I went through the steps of cleaning all the partitions on the hard drive and it was all good to go. I restart the laptop and I get an error saying my laptop needs to be repaired and I don't have anything to repair it with. I'm a little frustrated because when I formatted my hard drive I didn't touch the SSD whatsoever and my laptop worked perfectly fine without the hard drive connected at all. Any idea what could have caused this? It's an omen hp laptop. I have to resort to use a boot USB which I don't have. I do have an Android and wondering if anyone knows how to use my phone to fix my laptop without having to root it. Ask anything and I'll reply to the best of my ability.

Howdy folks ... I just got this AOC C32V1Q monitor, I have my AOC 27" hooked up next to it and the 27" gets a much more vivid picture more sharp ... bright image. I tried adjusting the 32" to the best of my knowledge, but I can't get the bright crisp image that I get with the 27". Why is that?
I have used a FreeAgent GoFlex external drive for some years attached to a Dell computer with Windows Xp operating system. That computer broke down irreparably in December 2018. I purchased a new Dell Inspiron 3472 computer with Windows 10 operating system
and reconnected the GoFlex external drive, since it carries all my active work. The majority of files are intact as expected, however, some files claim to be empty although I know that thousands of items are missing. Any ideas?
I followed instructions on this site (sorry, won't allow me to post the link, but you can find it by searching How to Enable JavaScript in Internet Explorer)
) to enable Java on IE 11, but it's already enabled and when I went to Java site to check if it's working, it said can't find Java, what I'm missing? 
ps: Windows 8.1 + IE11

I have an HP Probook 4510s, and whenever I start Windows normally or in Safe Mode with Networking, I will receive a BSOD after ~2 seconds at the login screen.

The BSOD says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and under technical information it says:

*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x8B459A0C)
*** ndis.sys - Address 8B459A0c base at 8B422000, DateStamp 5a499063

Whenever I start my computer in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Command Prompt, while loading Windows files it will freeze at \Windows\system32\drivers\aswbidshx.sys, and stay there for a few hours. Afterwards, I will get the same BSOD as I did before. However, I was able to use Safe Mode up until today, when all of a sudden I started getting BSODs while trying to start it up.

At this point, I'm desperate, and will try basically anything. My computer has been getting these errors for months now, and I have tried almost every solution on the Internet. I'm hoping I can find some help here.
Hey people, so my computer has 16 GB of ram so that should be enough to launch a game but whenever I do try to launch it a message comes up that says "You need more RAM. Minimal amount allocated should be at least 5500MB form game to run. Please adjust your settings and launch the game again." What should I do, I don't know how to adjust my settings.
Does anyone know if Lenovo ever responds? I have been trying to get someone to respond to this email and have tried every email address I can find but never get a response.  I purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad p50 with ssd  in November 2017 then in September 2018 it stopped working and lenovo replaced it with a ThinkPad p51,with ssd now if find out that the p51 only has 64 bit capability whereas the other one had 32 bit as well as 64 bit,  and now I can not run my accounting program nor my Microsoft picture it program nor any other 32 bit. Is the a fix for this? Do I take it to your authorized dealer in Kingston?
