I have an Acer V223HQV monitor,it is an older monitor and it only has VGA display option.
So i recently bought a new pc with a Nvidia gtx 1060 which only has HDMI conection.
First i bought a cable that converts hdmi signal to vga and everything worked fine.
Then that converter cable broke and i bought a new one,literally the same cable but new.
Now with that new cable my display seems blurry but not like foggy blurry or text blurry.Text and icons seem to have some kind of chromatic abberation effect.
Something like this

I have tryed the ClearType thing and it doesent work.
I tryed everything,from nvidia control panel to my monitor settings and i also updated all my drivers and nothing seems to fix it.

I was informed bye one of my financial product companies that my account had been used to try to open a bank account. They suggested that I have my computers and devices professionally cleaned. I would like to do that myself. How do I do that and save everything that is on my computer so that I can then reinstall it? I would like to do this as economically as possible. Thank you so much.
Hi All, So I've been chasing a bluescreen issue with a pair of 1 month old X1 Yoga's. BlueScreen View says it's something to do with the PDC.sys but I can't seem to find any drivers left to update and I'm not 100% sure which drivers this relates to, if any. If anyone has any ideas I apreciate it. -Bob Some images:https://imgur.com/IM4GFCwhttps://imgur.com/ja6qvgfhttps://imgur.com/EeKAQOC    
Hi!So, I have a very interesting problem. I have a T430 that has no microphone at all. I installed a Windows 10 on my computer and figured out there is no any recording device in the audio settings. After a short time and a lot of read threads I tried to enable it from the BIOS. However, I don't have any Microphone option in the I/O section. It drives me crazy. I attached some photos about my BIOS settings. I'm wondering if anyone met this kind of problem before. Every other I/O devices work fine without any issues. Best regards,Renato

Hello Everybody.

I have Satellite L500-1UU laptop. It contains Windows 10 1809. My disk is MBR. I want to convert to GPT. Can we convert MBR to GPT? If we can convert to GPT This computer has GPT support?

Hi everyone.
I have a Satellite L50-C 13V and I was looking to update my drivers. Guess which is the only model NOT on the list

Can anybody tell me which alternative model I should select to be able to update my drivers.

Thanks in advance.
First of all, sry for my bad english.
The problem i have is that I bought a satellite L850-150 seven years ago with windows 7 preinstalled, i made the security copy and burnt it into a dvd, a few days ago i need to reinstall windows but the dvd was damaged so it was useless, with the windows serial i tried to download a windows usb copy from microsoft but it gave me an error, so i contacted microsoft support and they said me that toshiba in this case blocked the serial so i need to contact toshiba support to unblock it, but i dont find where to go to do that, only here, someone can help me?

So I realise my computer is old but faithful and still working quite well.

A few years ago I upgraded to Windows 10. I lost some functionality of the function keys (fn) and the illuminated keys i.e. stop, play, wifi and the like. This didn't bother me much.

Recently though my wifi has stopped working and won't turn on. I can't turn it on using the fn keys and I tried to turn it on using the mouse etc but no luck. I tried to use Ethernet but no luck.

Are there Windows 10 drivers for this laptop or an alternative?

Are the drivers the issue? I have ran a number of system checks and no flags have cropped up.

My Lenovo G50-45 laptop shuts down when i plugged in power source, but it works fine on battery or the power source attached to it before unplugging and replugging into it. It behaves like this I started my computer while plugged into power source it was working fine and then i remove the power source and keep doing work on battery, it was still working fine. After few time the battery is getting low then i plugged into power source boom my laptop shuts down immediately. After that i restarted my laptop while being plugged down to power source it started fine and working flawlessly. But everytime i tried to plug in to direct power source via ac adapter it is shutting down without any reason. This problem is coming out recently. Now I am typing this issue while directly plugged down to power source and it is working fine. I don't know what is the proper issue. But if anyone help me out it will be greatful.
Hello!I have had my P71 for some time and I recently bought an Akito Node. In it, I have a 1050ti and sometimes I can get this to work, othertimes not. I have updated the thunderbolt 3 drivers, and have installed both the discrete graphics/1050ti graphics drivers, and flashed the akito node with the most up-to-date firmware.However, this only works I would say a good quarter of the time.What happens, is: I plug it in, I can't project onto the screen. The graphics card is running.On a whim, I'll install the drivers again. Sometimes this works, othertimes it doesn't. I try a pattern of rebooting my laptop and all, and at most it takes 30 minutes of nonstop installation of drivers/ rebooting for it to work.The best part? If the thunderbolt 3 cable comes loose (which it often does), it stops working and I have to repeat the process I was wondering if there's a solution to this.

Put together my new pc this week and found that my RTX 2070 GPU doesn't work on the PCIE2 slot. When I plug in the hdmi cable there is no display on my monitor. When I connect the hdmi directly to the motherboard and boot it the pc doesn't detect that the graphics card. The when the card is plugged, the fans and lights are working but the display isn't working.

I also tested the port with my old GTX 970 card and it also doesn't work. When I tried installing the cards on the PCIE4 slot it works fine. I have tried everything I can think of to fix this issue. Reinstalled windows 10 multiple times, downloaded the NVidia driver, updated the BIOs, made sure BIOs primary graphics adapter was set to PCI Express, used DDU to remove other drivers on the PC, checked the pins of the CPU for bents, sprayed compressed air into the PCIe slots, reset CMOS. Nothing has fixed the issue.

Is there anything else I could try to fix the PCIE2 slot on the motherboard?

I had sent in my Yoga 720 under warranty for an issue last month, and the device was returned to me a few hours ago. I immediately opened the box to check on the laptop, and saw this denting.  I contacted support and was asked for a picture proving that the damage was not present before sending the device in for my orignal RMA. I didn't think this would be an issue, as I remember having taken pictures before packaging the laptop. However, it seems that I remembered incorrectly, as I cannot find the pictures anywhere. I even checked my trash folders... The pictures appear to have simply disappeared. Is there any way I can still get Lenovo to cover this damage? The device is still well within the warranty period, but the agent I spoke with said that while I can send the device in, they can't guarantee that the warranty will cover it since I cannot provide the pictures ("proof") of the device's condition pre-RMA. However, shouldn't it be proof enough that the device wasn't flagged when they checked for physical damage before conducting the original repair?
I have a small office with three computers in a workgroup configuration. Two of the computers are Windows 10 (one being where all the shared files are stored) and one is a Windows 7 computer. The Windows 7 computer has a shared HP Laserjet 4 printer and
up until a couple days ago the one Windows 10 computer could print to the Laserjet on the Windows 7 computer with no problem and has been doing so for at least two years.
Here are the things that I checked: The Windows 7 computer's network type is set to a "Work" network; the Windows 10 computer is set to "Private". Both computers have network discovery and filesharing turned on and their workgroup name
is the same. On the Windows 10 computer in the credentials manager the proper credentials have been entered to give that computer access to the printer on the Windows 7 computer. I checked the sharing and security properties of the printer on the Windows 7
computer and they seem to be correct.
On the Windows 10 computer when I attempt to browse the network I can't see either the Windows 10 file server or the Windows 7 computer although the mapped drive to the computer with shared files seems to work fine.

Any ideas?
Can you tell me what I would need to allow a guest device, internet access but not give them access to my LAN?

My friends Windows 8.1 computer suddenly wouldn't start  and startup repair couldn't fix the problem. Before I did anything else I wanted to backup her user data, I attached the hard drive to another computer using a USB hard drive adapter and when
I browser to the operating system partition and \Users her entire user directory appears to be missing and the only thing under \Users is "Administrator", "Guest", "HomeGroupUser$" and "Public". Just to make sure, I
put the hard drive back in the original computer and it automatically starts to the recovery screen "Continue", "Troubleshoot" and "Turn Off Your PC" and I started the command prompt and switched to C: and \Users and I still only
see just the above directories and it appears like her user directory is completely missing. I tried running chkdsk /f /r and as far as I can tell no bad blocks were discovered and only minor inconsistencies in the file structure and still no user directory
with her name.
Does anyone have an idea what happened here? How can I get her user directory back?
I am using Win7 Pro 64 bit. I loaded an old 32 bit game which some people have had luck running on this OS. It loaded but wouldn't run. OK, I tried. No big deal. I'm not asking for help getting it to run. But, I did notice that it installed in the program files instead of program files (x86). My question is...would that make a difference as far as running the game? I thought the OS installed 32 bit programs in the (x86) files automatically.
Dear all, I own the X1 Carbon 5th gen (20HR0021MZ) and I am running Windows 10. I just entered a micro SIM card into the micro-SIM-card tray. However, the "Cellular" option doesn't display in the Network settings. I installed the latest Sierra drivers and it was said that the device is now usable. However, I can't find anything related to Sierra in the Device manager under "Network Adapters". Only my bluetooth and ethernet ports and a bunch of "WAN miniport". Any idea?? Thanks!

Does AIK (Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit), contain Perc6 drivers specially ? and/or how do you find out what drivers are included by default ?

I'm guessing any missing drivers will need o be added during build process?
Hi all my friend bought me a brand new Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Touchscreen Laptop 12 gigs memory Core I 5. I just got it last night. I set it up and that was it. Now I turned it on today and it has been black screen for the last 10 min. I noticed last night it gets hot on the bottom of the laptop when it is on my lap and it is loud. Good Lord I thought Dell was a good company and now paying almost $700 it is crap!! Can someone help me get passed this black screen????

Just got a new Yoga 730-13®. Battery will not charge, just remains in a certain percentage (first day it was 13% and second day was 26%). Although I am using the original adapter, which I have verified to be the correct one (65W), Lenovo Vantage reads ®AC adapter has limited support - This AC adapter cannot provide enough power for normal operation of your computer...®.  Is this likely a battery, ac adapter, or software problem?
Is there any way to connect a microfone to a ThinkPad T450S or does the audio connector really only support headsets (as mentioned in the users guide)?It's very suprising for me to read that my ThinkPad has no real audio input.
For the past 3 weeks, my computer has been crashing with two stop codes, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Most noticeably the latter. I reinstalled windows 10 and it seemed to fix the issue with my pc crashing but my games would still crash. Most games open and about 30 seconds to a minute and crash. My computer would usually crash after the game crashed with a stop code, but I have since then reinstalled windows and now only games crash. I can be on chrome or online watching videos for hours with no issue, along with small games(such as Toribash or forts if that means anything), but most games crash shortly after opening(siege, for honor, pubg, csgo, etc). They seem to run fine and perfectly smooth, and just freeze for a second and crash.

What I've done so far is I first checked inside to see if my ram, CPU, or GPU were dirty or loose for some reason. I checked every driver for updates, a random one or two had updates but most noticeably my Realtech PCIe network adapter had an update, but whenever updated I wouldn't be able to connect to the internet, but once rolled back I could connect just fine. I then reinstalled windows 10 after wiping my boot drive.

This has never been an issue before until today, but basically when I press the brightness adjustment keys for increasing or decreasing screen brightness, its not immediate like usual and it literally takes a minute or two sometimes to react to the key presses. In addition, I tried going into settings and adjusting the brightness and that got me the same result of it being delayed and slow to react to the change in screen brightness. I rebooted the computer several times and the issue still persists, any idea on how to fix this?? This is extremely annoying.
Anyone install the "ThinkPad USB-C Dock - Type 40A9" and be able to maintain the use of the internal Realtec Microphone Array? I'm at the end of my ability to diagnose it.  Drivers and device manager settings all look enabled and correct but I lose ability to use internal mic.

I'm having trouble viewing some videos, mainly those on websites and some youtube videos, though netflix and amazon prime videos look fine. For the videos with issues, they look extremely zoomed in. The rest of the page is not zoomed in, only the video, and thumbnails of videos look normal. This problem started a few months ago, but for awhile if I just unpluged my computer from the charger, the video would go back to normal. Now it suddenly changed to videos being zoomed in whether I'm plugged in or not. I have tried several troubleshooting solutions I have found online, like changing the battery and display settings in the control panel, but none of those worked. I think it might have something to do with the video playback, but I'm not sure. I even reset all the original display and battery settings, and that didn't work. Here's the information for my computer:
