Every once in a while (seemingly random) my screen will glitch out completely. I have no control over the cursor or keyboard and i have to turn off the computer to fix the issue temporarily. The laptop is about a week old and i have tried updating the graphics drivers but the glitch still occurs. I will attach some photos of the screen. Any help is appreciated. Thanks    
Hi all, I do tech support at a university that uses various Lenovo notebooks across campus. I have noticed a trend among the users that have a Thinkpad Yoga 370 Notebook and are using a Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock, myself included. Occasionally (every few weeks or so), one of the affected systems will show "plugged in, not charging" tooltip when hovering over the battery tray icon. When this happens, the charge indicator light by the charging port and Thunderbolt port does not turn on, the battery continues to drain, and unplugging the Thunderbolt cable and either plugging it (or the regular power cable) back into the notebook has no effect. These systems all use Lenovo System Update to keep their drivers and BIOS up to date, and I have updated the firmware on the Thunderbolt 3 Docks manually. This issue was brought to my attention because it started happening to me and my laptop/dock after the first few weeks of having it, and this behavior continued to happen for months. I would constantly be plugging in and unplugging my laptop, as I do on-site support in several buildings, and my laptop goes everywhere with me. In October I stopped using my dock entirely, and since then have had 0 problems when just using the laptop's regular charging cable. I have 3 or 4 other users whom I support that have this issue though; due to the sheer volume of documents they need open at once, they need a multi-monitor setup and ethernet ports, so not having a dock is not an option.

Whenever my computer goes into hibernation mode I can't wake it up. I tried pressing all the keys, pressing the power button, using the mouse, and then everything again after I plugged it in. (I can wake it up fine when in sleep mode though) I also used the command prompt to turn hibernation off/ on and made sure the keyboard was set to allow to wake the computer in device manager. The only way I could use my computer again is to force shutdown and reboot. Does anyone know of a solution where I can wake up my computer without forcing it to shutdown?  
Having difficulty setting up my Canon LiDE 110 scanner in a Windows 7 64 bit computer. I've loaded the Canon LiDE 110 program, and understand that I need to install MP Navigator. I looked for the program online, and it says I need the 5.0 version of Navigator. I've downloaded it, but it stalls and refuses to open. Although it's the Canon recommended version, when I try to open it, it shows a list of models that it will support, but I can't find my model of scanner listed. I've been practising insanity.....Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I've got hours and hours invested in this with no success, so I need to ask for help. What I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

Anyone have any suggestions for a power bank to use with the C930? This is the one I was taking a look at on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Power-Delivery-Charger-20000-Output/dp/B078RTGL35/ref=sr_1_3?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qi... The power bank is 45W. However, the C930 charge is 65W. According to the seller, it will work with the C930 but not charge as quickly as the older generation C920, which is 45W. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
I have an hp Compaq Presario cq56 running windows 7 home edition .
I downloaded winzip 22.5 ,and a pop up said my free trial has ended. My nightmare began. I tried to uninstall it. It would not uninstall. Instead, everything I click on is "winzip free trial has ended purchase now or register." Ive looked throughout the world wide web. It would seem I'm the only one this has happened to.
When I try to x out, the 50 or so winzip windows continue to multiply.

Hello AllHopefully someone here can help.We are currently going through a Win10 deployment company wide.  We are using existing systems, formatting, updating, etc...Our systems range from M700/710q/720q, M83, P310/P320 T440/450/460/470/480, X240/250/260/270, and various Yogas (around the X380 series). Now I have a script to which I can write the asset to any of the laptops (including the Yoga); Basically - "%~dp0winaia.exe" -set "userassetdata.asset_number=%asset%" However, I cannot get it to write to any of the desktop series.  Seems like I almost need four different ways for the M83, M700 series, and each of the P300 series.  Is this true?  Or am I missing something Thanks ahead of time 
How can i fix this?

Just put together a PC, msi meg z390 ace motherboard, put in a i7-8700.. When I turn the power on, I'm getting power to the mobo but the debug led flashes 00 with the cpu led and one fan turns on for a second, this is all that happens on a loop every 5 seconds or so. I checked the cpu to make sure all the pins are in place, cooler is not too tight, and all cords are still connected correctly, came figure out why it will not boot. Nothing will show on monitor.
Anyone know what could be happening?

Hello guys, I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad T450s couple of days ago. And the laptop works fine, well most of the time...The specs are:Intel i7 5600U12GB Ram512GB SSD1920x1080 The problem is that after a while the laptop starts becoming REALLY slow!And it's like the fan "died' all of the sudden.For instance, let say that I play a game on Steam (Rocket League), the game works really good and I can hear the fan spin (which is normal when playing game etc), but after I close the game, and do other stuff, i can see that the laptop is really slow...Is the task manager everything seems normal, nothing is 100%, the CPU, disk etc is usually under 15%.But just to verify it, I try to open rocket league again, and I can play the game but now it's all laggy and barely playable. Also the fan doesn't spin anymore. It's just dead silent.It also happens when I don't play any games.When I reboot the laptop again, everything works again.Do you guys know what the problem might be? Do you want me to upload anything, or download some software to get more information?P.S I also opened the backlid to see if there was any dust in the fan that might cause this, but no, it's clean.
Despite the fact that Windows 7 (DARTH) is and has been configured not to download and install ?updates? 4 updates were downloaded and installed on January 21.  These turned out to be the cause of Windows 10 (ZTREE) inability to access shared directories
on DARTH.  The four updates were deinstalled and the System Error 6 reports disappeared.

Let me introduce myself. I was a subject matter expert for Microsoft among many other roles. I have had the misfortune of paying money to buy one of these laptops. It has to be the worst laptop I have ever bought, serviced, or worked on. The battery life, sound, and just everything is very poor. Not what was promised by the sales people. My main issue is the flickering screen. IT IS A HARDWARE ISSUE !!!!! This company distributed this laptop, with this very horrible problem but refuse to acknowledge it is a problem with hardware. Over a year now and they will ask you to update drivers, do a restore. Anything apart from admit that the problem is with their laptop and they have had thousands returned. They do not want a recall.  Very disappointed with this company and I have a 6 hour journey to Bangkok for them to tell me the same things. I just want my money back. I am even considering going down the legal channels for them to admit the problem.  
There is a similar post on this forum, but it does not answer my problem. Here's the issue: I bought my T440s about two weeks ago. I had Windows 7 Pro installed at the factory. From day 1, when I close the lid or enter sleep mode from the start menu, the computer will not wake up. Open the lid, press a key, press the power button, nothing happens. I can hold the power button and completely shut it down, at which time it tells me that windows shut down unexpectedly. This happens every single time. I called Lenovo Tech support. After doing several things (check Bios, reinstalling drivers, reinstalling power management, etc) the problem persisted. The support staff said that it "must be a problem with the image" and is sending me some Windows 7 recovery disks. This seems to be a major problem. From even a cursory Google search, there are many people who have experienced this with the new ThinkPads. This is my 4th Lenovo computer, and I've never had anything like this happen. Can someone from Lenovo address this? Waking from sleep is a simple laptop function.
While I wait for testing results to come back from our operations group, I'm curious if the collective has an a definitive answer on this Q:
After updating ATA Center to Update 1, will the gateways be able to remotely update (via the center) or will we need to distribute a LWGW "interactive install package" as was needed for the original agent deployment?  We have a large number
of devices that need to be updated immediately after ATA Center is completed and are trying to plan accordingly.  The logistics are challenging.
Thanks in advance. - Chris
Hello,

I have a file on an employee's computer that builds in Internet Explorer's temp files when using an online service. I need that file to not be deleted at random. The file in question is RinconClient[1].xap, pictured below in the Event Viewer, with file auditing.

I have narrowed it down to either dllhost.exe or taskhostw.exe deleting the file, in event viewer. We have antivirus software which has not detected anything malicious in regards to the RinconClient[1].xap file.

In Internet Explorer, I have
Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed = Unchecked
Delete Browsing History no exit = Unchecked
Check for Newer versions of stored pages = Never
Allow website caches and databases = Checked

In Task Scheduler
CleanupTemporaryState = Disabled
SilentCleanup = Disabled

I have messed with permissions to the C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Low\IE folders and subfolders and to the file itself. Making sure it is supposed to not get deleted.


I have tried a script which copies the file to each folder and subfolder in
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Low\IE
Did not resolve the issue.

hey since two days I bought a computer and the windows is still not installed on the computer, so I got this message when I turned on the computer

no boot device available

strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility press f5 to run onboard diagnostics.

I tried to install windows 7 by a cd and didn't work and still getting the same message
 
I recently purchased an Ideapad P400, and I have noticed that the default for  the keys where  F1 and F2, etc. usually are, are now the mute and volume buttons.  To access the F1, F2....F12 keys, you now have to press Fn + your desired F key.   While I understand many people probably find this useful, I play several games where these keys are essential, and it makes playing the games nearly impossible to play if you have to hold down the Fn key in addition to the desired F key.  So my question is, is it possible to reverse the Function keys?  I would much rather press Fn + F1 to mute than have to press press Fn + F1 to access F1.    Thanks you in advance.

I have a P40 Yoga attached to an Ultra Dock 3.0 USB.  I have/had an HDMI cable coming off the dock to a ViewSonic monitor.  I am getting a maximum resoltion of 1920 x 1080 and colors are not displaying correctly or in some cases not displaying at all.  I found mention on the ThinkPad site that 4K is only supported via the DP off the dock.  So I tried a DP to HDMI cable and that does the same thing.  If I plug the monitor directly into the HDMI port on the laptop everything works great. Why doesn't the dock work as advertised and expected?  Is there a different setup required?
Lenovo P1 (20ME) running Windows 10 1803 does not connect to mapped network drives on log on.  After  log on, mapped network drives show as not connected (red x) but when selected, will connect.  Issue does not occur when ethernet cable is connected directly to the laptop.  This is causing an issue for users running automated programs. 
I don't post here often. I hope it's the right place for this kind of comments. I have been a loyal Lenovo customer for eight years, during which I bought two workstations and spent more than $6,000 each time. I also spent VERY good money to make sure I would get extended warranty and on-site repairs if needed. I have never needed assistance in all these years, but now that I do, Lenovo is not there for me. The screen of my Lenovo W541 has a minor crack, which might get worse over time. My workstation is still under warranty, for about another month. I would have liked to have the screen repaired or replaced, but Lenovo claims I should send in the workstation to a depot. I must mention that, for work-related reasons, I cannot go without my workstation not even for one day. I guess it is easy to understand, if one, like me, is willing to spend more than $6,000 on a laptop. I asked a Lenovo authorized business partner to help me. So, after a long back and forth, Lenovo has presented me with these two options: a) send in the workstation to a depot (part would be free, I would have to pay for labor); b) use the service of a business partner, who would replace the screen in minutes, but in this case I would have to pay for part and labor.  I asked to have the part sent to my home or office, and I would perform the replacement myself, but Lenovo are not willing to do that. I am very disappointed. In the end, I will stay with a cracked screen, or I... Read more
I've got a 2 month old T480 that intermittently, but frequently, refuses to shut down. It just spins at the Windows 10 shut down screen. After updating all available Windows and Lenovo updates it still occurs. Recently the battery occasionally stops charging. Removing and replacing the battery seems to resolve until the next time. This has only happened twice in the last week or so but I'm not sure if this is a related symptom or something else entirely.  I've got an X1 Yoga that has also had similar issues shutting down but very rarely. So I'm not sure if this is a Lenovo/Windows 10 thing or if something else is wrong. Any ideas or things to check?

Issue: certain video media files are playing with broken images in certain media players:
- the colors are all wrong (they may be inverted); green becomes red, etc.
- all seems to be displayed in large, fuzzy soft edged blocks, instead of clear pixels

I went through re-install of codecs, both via the K-lite codec collection,
but also via the K-lite codecs

This had no impact at all, but then I figured out that VLC kept playing correctly, no matter what.
I re-installed MPC-HC, disabled and enabled WMP, but that has no effect. Also installed PotPlayer.
All of these play the same file in the same incorrect way.

Another place where an issue is seen, is with the Apple's Aerial screensaver (which is very nice BTW)
This basically is a screensaver that plays media files (of type .MOV)
It has the same incorrect behaviour as with the failing media players itself

affected media formats:
  MP4
  MOV
  AVI
  MPG

affected media players:
  PotPlayer
  MPC-HC (Media Player Classic)
  WMP (Windows Media Player)

All of these players are running the latest versions

Media formats playing correctly on ALL media players:
  none, it seems

Media players having no issue:
  VLC

Re-installing Windows is not an option here, one because it is not possible technically but
two, because the issue is not annoying enough.

Hi there, I have the Z51-70 model, bought it in 2015. The problem is while I was intalling Windows 10, it forced to delete the diskpart and I deleted. As Lenovo Z51-70 comes with a original Windows 8.1, it did not re initialized the operating system, after I booted up, I lost everything even my Windows 10 did not get activated as it should have done. I have backup in my external hard drive but while trying to image recovery in the troubleshoot option, it wants a backup CD/DVD. Is there any way to go back to Windows 8.1! Thanks in advance

I have an X220 and have been having a little trouble with Restore and Recovery... and it occured to me that with Windows 7 nearing  the end of MS support, that possibly the way to go is just do a clean install of Windows 10  (I see MS has a utility to put this on USB drive, which is porblem I'm having now with recovery). And then what would the procedure be to install needed drivers, updates etc?  Thanks so much for the help!
Hi Andy,
 
Thanks for posting and bringing this to our attention. The Community was never intended as an official direct support channel and, as such, isn't staffed as one to adequately address an issue such as that you are reporting; would be difficult for us to see it through to a resolution. I do see that support have engaged with you and are assisting, please work with them as they have the resources necessary to assist in these circumstances.

Our ATA Center shows directory data for all of our groups except for the really important ones - Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, Schema Admins, etc. I've verified that the Directory Services account successfully connects and has read access on the groups.

I was having trouble with Windows 10. No apps were working. I googled my issue and found a suggestion to reboot into safe mode. I did so, but now, all I can do is restart or shut down. It won?t go past my lock screen (it won?t even allow me to sign in). It?s worse than before. At least before, I could go online; now I can?t do anything. Please help!

Hey everyone,  I just received my new Thinkpad L580 about 2 days ago, Windows 10 64-bit,  i7 8th Gen, 8gb RAM, 1TB HDD, 65W charger on a 45W battery and my battery life drains really fast under normal use. The advertised number of hours were about 12 hours and although of course, I'm not expecting this high, my battery life doesn't even last 6 hours on a normal use (browsing, email and Word). On a fresh boot, the battery will say 6hrs30 min for the first 5min, and then once I start using even a normal app like Edge or Word, the battery life drops to 3hrs30min and this is on full charge. All I know is, when I received the laptop 2 days ago, the first thing when I turned it on, the battery would say 12hrs (then drop down to 8hrs) and then I did all the Windows 10 updates and then now my battery life starts at 6hrs30 for 100% charge.  Help anyone?

Hi, I had bought this Yoga 900 here in USA, my wife had to take this to India and the power adapter stopped working after some days. I am looking for this compatible in India. The authorized service center  folks there didnt have it and asked us to check with CS. Where can I order this online and get it delivered to India?
I read about the recent issues concerning Thunderbolt BIOS Assist Mode, and I understood the related issues had been solved by recent BIOS updates. I am using Linux, so today I took the plunge, entered the BIOS settings (v1.17), and did the following:I disabled the "Wake by Thunderbolt"I enabled "Thunderbolt BIOS Assist Mode". The message informed me that reconfiguration may take up to 15 seconds.Security Level was already set to "No Security" and "Pre Boot" support was disabled (it was never enabled)Saved the BIOS settings. The X1 Extreme restarted.At this point, I got the message: "Configuring Thunderbolt Controller... Please do not power off!" and waited. After five minutes, still at the same page. After ten minutes, still stuck. I silently screamed. After twenty minutes, still there. I disconected the power adapter, and tried to press the power button for several seconds. Nothing. Completely stuck. I took a paperclip and pressed the emergency reset button on the bottom part of the case. The machine shut off, and I really prayed that the machine wasn't dead. Switched it on, and thankfully the computer booted up. The BIOS settings showed the selected options in place, but I cannot know whether the controller is really working correctly, or whether the controller firmware is half-flashed or otherwise corrupted. I entered the BIOS settings again and disabled the "Thunderbolt BIOS Assist Mode". Reboot. Stuck again at the "Configuring Thu... Read more
Hi All, I seem to have killed my T530's built-in display output.  External monitor works fine (using it now) but there is nothing showing on the laptop panel.  The panel itself is fine -checked in an X1 Carbon gen1. Problem started after I connected a 14" panel that I bought for the aforementioned X1 Carbon.  The panel was a mess of lines in the X1, so after checking on panelook.com and figuring they were compatible (LP140WD2-TLD2 vs LP156WD1-TLB2 - both LVDS, 2 channel, 6 bit, 40 pin, 3.3V), I connected it to the T530. Nothing showed.  Then when I put the T530's panel back it also showed nothing. Initially both the laptop panel and the external monitor showed up in the Device Manager. Now only the external monitor is showing. So, question is, is there a fuse on the mobo that I might have blown, and if so, does anyone know where it is?.   Thanks for reading. Regards.  
Users cannot RDP into a remote win7 machine (that is outside the local domain) if the Network Authentication Layer is mandatory on this remote machine. If network authentication is disabled users can login with no problem, but this policy of demanding network
authentication layer for remote desktop is a security requirement. The error message is (translated):
"Authentication error occured
The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted
External computer: [computerdomainname.net]
Your password might have expired
Change your password if it has expired
Contact administrator or technical support."
Curiously, this problem affects only users in the Administrators group on the remote win7 machine (and Back-upoperators group as I have found during troubleshooting).
Users in Users group on the remote win7 machine with external network access rights can RDP with Network Authentication Layers enabled with no problem.
I have looked into local security policy user right assignments, and removed the administrators group from a number of items that seemed potential deal breakers, such as log in as batchjob to no avail.
Users do not have expired passwords.
I have found no events that appear each time I try to login to the machine, but event 56 occurs from time to time:
