My laptop HP uses windows 10, recently my laptop started dieing quickly when it wasnt plugged in. It then started that when it is close to flat that it would just die with no notification that it is flat and would make a beep/click sound when it dies. It also only when plugged in the screen will brighten and dim for no reason, I have looked for adaptive brightness to see if this was a separate issue and there was no setting for this. I think these issues relate to each other as they started happen around the same time.
I have run battery health tests and it all says the battery is healthy. I also do not feel any extreme heat on the underside of the laptop that would indicate that the Fan is broken and over heating.

If anyone knows what may be causing the issue please assist as having to have a laptop plugged in is a major hassle.

Hello everyone, since I use both, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Tablet 2nd and 3rd Gen, I was wondering whether there was an adapter or anything I could use in order to use my 2nd Gen Lenovo Thinkpad OneLink+ Dock (EU) with my 3rd Gen X1 Tablet. Is there any such solution or do I have to buy a whole new dock? Best regards
My company has a Windows 2012r2 server that does not have IIS installed.  However, in a recent vulnerability scan the Options Method Enabled security vulnerability was detected.  I performed a scan using nmap and discovered the following:
PORT      STATE    SERVICE
21/tcp    filtered ftp
135/tcp   open     msrpc
139/tcp   open     netbios-ssn
445/tcp   open     microsoft-ds
3389/tcp  open     ms-wbt-server
8080/tcp  open     http-proxy

So, the question is:  Since this server does not have IIS Manager, how do I disable the risky methods?
I just received warning that Microsoft is blocking the August roll up updates if you are using Norton Security. If the August roll up update does not show up when you check for updates, DO NOT try to install it manually from the catalog because Norton will kill the update as it is installing and it will totally mess up your PC.

A few days ago my computer was running fine starting easy and quickly and I had 3 storage devices working (1tb hardrive, 500gb Samsung evo 860 m.2, 250g Samsung evo 840 sata ssd) but today when I tried launching it was struggling and failing to boot so I went to the bios on Asus rog strix B450-f gaming motherboard and it was trying to boot from the wrong drive so I set the priority to the drive that has the Windows install and now it still slow boots but now the other 2 drives have gone missing.

Ten minutes ago I received a message from Lenovo that there was a BIOS update. It said that I should close all files/programs and that this BIOS updare might require restarting several time. I clicked OK but nothing has happened. What should I do please? (PS A similar thing happened a minute or two later about "Lenovo Settings has merged with Lenovo Vantage". I clicked to launch but nothing has happened. I'll create a separate new thread.)

Lenovo U530 Touch: Silver. I've had this computer since October 2014. One recurring problem seems to be that the hinges are not strong enough to support the display. While under warranty, I had lenovo repair my hinges a few years ago. Now, the hinge is broken again and I need to replace it. Can anyone help me find me find the part number for the hinge? The screen, or it seems like the outer layer of the screen, cracked while I was moving it as well. The hinge stuck out of the panel and cracked the outer screen layer (if there are 2 layers) and the touch seems to be broken. Do I need a full screen replacement or just a touch digitizer replacement? Can anyone link me the exact part I need for this as well?  To be more specific: when I change my perspective, the crack appears on different locations on the screen which made me believe it is only the outer "layer" since as a touch computer there are 2 parts to it. From my brief research into this, I was going to order a new LCD however I'm not sure if it's a different part when the crack can be felt with my finger and that it looks like it's on the above layer rather than the LCD screen itself?

In short I have a mouse issue and I believe that Windows OS is responsible for it.

PC SPECS:
MOBO: Gigabyte z270x
CPU:I7-7700k 4.2ghz
GPU: ASUS ROG GTX 1070
RAM: Corsair Vengence 2x 8gb 3000mhz
PSU: Corsair 750w
OS:Win 10 Pro
Mouse: Zowie EC-1B 800dpi 500hz

I have had this issue for over 7 years now and have thus far had no luck through other forums.

Let me make it abundantly clear that the mouse itself functions fine at a hardware level and there are NO drivers for it, when I say "Mouse issue" I do NOT mean the physical mouse I am referring to the "Feeling" of the mouse movement on the desktop/browser/games itself.

The "feeling" of the mouse is sloppy, inconsistent, inaccurate and difficult to work with at any point in games, browsers or even on the desktop it is legitimately a challenge to even move the cursor over an icon and click it. Playing any game at all, any 2d/3d rendered environment is a headache, the movement of just clicking on things in menus is as frustrating as it is on the desktop itself. It feels like acceleration is activated but it is off, I have tested accel in several games and the feeling does not change.

To anyone that is familiar to how a mouse cursor should behave in a game on the PC, you understand that the player should be able to place the crosshair over a corner and pace back and forth and with proper settings and sensitivity the player should be able to keep the cursor RELATIVELY stable.

Hi,I'm trying to update my firmware following the ubuntu updater, but every time I reboot it gives me an error and reset without making any changes. I'm trying to apply this update https://fwupd.org/lvfs/device/com.lenovo.ThinkPadN2EHT.firmware I've tried even by command line, but everything it seems fine except when you reboot to upgrade the firmware. What am I doing wrong? 
I have an X1 Carbon 2nd gen with a motherboard that just failed on me. I've ordered a new X1 Carbon 7th gen, but I need to pull the data off the hard drive of the 2nd generation.  It's the original 256 GB SSD drive. What's the best/easiest solution to do so? I guess I'm looking at some kind of external case or hookup/adapter to another computer, but no idea what specifically I should be looking at. Specific product or link to it would be a big help. Thanks!
any one have an idea what can cause this problem?best regards

Today after opening my laptop again, for some reason the brightness is now refusing to change. The slider still shows that I am indeed adjusting the brightness but it's not actually changing. Charger plugged in or not, it's not working. This issue has never occured before even the night before, until I booted it up today. I installed an update two days ago, but after the update the brightness was still adjustable. Restarting the laptop didn't resolve it.
Hi,Recently, my monitor randomly getting yellowish. Something like night mode in windows' setting, but the problem is not about it. Because when my monitor is yellowish and the laptop going in night mode, it goes more yellowish. My night mode works fine.So I searched a little and find "paper display" may cause this problem. But I didn't find the option in my "Lenovo Companion".Another tip is when I go to "Color management" and clicking on "Reload current calibration",  the yellowish problem disappears, and after a while, it comes again.Also, when I connect a USB device, the yellowish screen coms again.
Hi Lenovo,I bought a V330 in VietNam, and the keyboard is a non-backlit one.

I have 2 Lenovo Thinkpads P50 running Windows 10, latest update. The camera freezes on both. Both in the native Camera app and things like Skype. The camera will take an image, there will be a fraction of a second of movement, then the image freezes and stays. I can refresh and it will take a new image, but never a video. I have current drivers and there are no notifications in Device Manager. Both laptops have shown this behavior for about a week.I have found this problem mentioned in the forum, but there are no solutions (one guy said replacing his hard drive fixed it. I am hoping for a simpler solution).Any suggestions?
Hello,
I have a Dell N7010 laptop and a Moto g Android phone updated to Android 9

Even before the update I turn on the hotspot on the phone and it connects to the laptop the laptop says " connected internet access " but I cannot get on the internet

the only internet I have is on my phone I
do not have Wi-Fi or anything else here

in order to update my laptop which I tried with new drivers I have to go to a public Wi-Fi hotspot and my laptop has no problem connecting to Lowe's home improvement Wi-Fi which is great
but I cannot use my phone as a hotspot and get my laptop to connect to the internet which I really really really need.

Does anyone know why and can help me ???
 
Purchased my laptop from Amazon seller about a year ago. Black horizontal line started to show up about 6 months ago. It is only getting worse. This gets really annoying as the line is almost quarter of an inch down the screen and stretches across the whole screen now. Wondering if this can be fixed and if Lenovo offers any repairs? Wouldn't expect such issue to happen to a brand new laptop, and I understand I'm in a situation where I bought this laptop from Amazon that I don't have anywhere to go. This issue seems to be design flaw/defect from manufacturer and not misuse by the buyer.Please advise

Nifty new feature that comes with Win 10 1903

How to Enable the Windows 10 Tamper Protection Security Feature

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tu...indows-10-tamper-protection-security-feature/



With the release of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, Microsoft introduced a new security feature called Tamper Protection that protects security settings for Windows Defender antivirus from being disabled by malware or third-party programs.

When enabled, Tamper Protection will only allow Windows Defender related settings to be changed when done through the Windows Security settings screen. If a program, such as malware, or even PowerShell tries to change security settings or Microsoft Defender preferences, Tamper Protection will block the settings from being modified.

Due to this, Tamper Protection is an integral part of the Windows 10 security environment and should be enabled by all users for increased security and protection from malicious programs. Click to expand...

Directions follow in the article on how to enable.

edit: I just checked mine and found it was already enabled.
 
Help. After a lot of Win-10 updates the past 2 months, the battery will not charge. Its an original genuine Lenovo battery. Message comes up saying its not authorized.

Hi,  Recently I updated video driver on X1E (20MF) and now 2nd display is experiencing random issues with youtube playing in fullscreen mode. Sometimes white balance will fly off as if VR mode was forced on.  I'd like to roll back but it cannot be done through device manager.  I wonder if I can find older version of the driver somewhere. Thanks!

Hello, I'm having problems and I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction. Every single program I try to open on my laptop says "Not responding" for several seconds up until several minutes before reloading and usually works the second time. It's very time consuming and I cannot seem to figure out an answer. I have a Satellite C55T-A5222 running Windows 10 Home Single Language. My drivers are up to date, I've repeatedly ran Disk Defragmenter, and DISM says everything restored. My taskbar also keeps freezing my entire computer until it finishes flashing and reopening. Malwarebytes says there's no viruses, ADWcleaner doesn't find anything either. I've replaced my harddrive and reinstalled Windows, still having issues. Please help!!

Hey Guys,I recently upgraded from an X220 i5 2nd gen to a T460 i7 6th gen Vpro. I am having issues with windows/Linux lagging. Note that I have used these systems both as the main system and dual-booted them. I have 1TB of HDD and 8G of RAM. I am so sure my X220 was way faster and less laggy and this is frustrating because I have made such a huge upgrade in search of better performance. I have reinstalled the OS multiple times and nothing works. I am not sure if this caused by the HDD, I am thinking an SSD might solve the problem, but as of now I don't have the money to get an SSD, what is surprising is that the x220 (320gb HDD) was significantly faster and it had more programs on it than I have right now. All my drivers are up to date...  If anyone has any thoughts PS. I am currently travelling abroad and I am in Costa Rica. I am not also sure if my warranty is covered internationally, I have tried to check but I can't find anything. 
Hi and thanks in advance.

All of a sudden Chrome will not display a couple of weather maps that I frequently use and another is behaving oddly. This is an example of one of the error messages...

Map Not Available
The interactive map is not available on this browser at this time. Please try a different browser or update your current browser to the latest version.

The other site is a local weather map that has slowed way down.

These sites work on MS Edge and FireFox. I primarily use Chrome and would like to fix it if possible. I've tried clearing the cache and cookies, using default settings, as well as enabling and adding the sites for Flash and Java. Didn't change the problems at all.

Thanks again!
 
So I'm rebuilding my computer. New graphics card, fans, cpu...the works. After installing it all to my new motherboard and starting it up, the keyboard and mouse no longer work. More specifically, I'm pretty sure the USB on the back panel doesn't work at all. What's frustrating is that they work long enough for me to get into BIOS, but after that they stop working. Any ideas on how I can fix this.

CPU: Intel i3-9300
Motherboard: Intel z390-a pro
Graphics card: AMD R9 580

Something else I think might be an issue is that I'm running Windows 7 and I think the CPU is optimized for Windows 10. I don't know if this could at all he an issue or not
 
I entered the wrong PIN for the pre-boot Bitlocker prompt. It's now requiring me to enter a recovery key which I don't have (no print out, no file, no Microsoft account).  I've read various articles stating what the lockout duration is ranging from 2 to 62 hours, but that with TPM 1.2, which the W530 has, the hardware manufacturer can set the duration to whatever they want.  I tried re-entering the PIN after waiting two hours, then again after 12 hours, but it still says it's incorrect -- however, I know without a doubt that it is the correct PIN, so I'm guessing TPM is still in lockout mode. So that I'm not waiting for nothing, can someone confirm what Lenovo sets the TPM lockout duration to be?  Or will I absolutely need the recover key to proceed even though I know what the PIN is?

How to connect via wireless the HP deskjet F4580 printer
I have a 4 year old self built PC running windows 10. It's a pretty high end gaming setup and I've have no issues with it until now. Last night it was sitting idle. It worked fine the last time i had been on it. I went to use it and I started noticing most web pages were not connecting and stating connection errors. Programs, settings, and other menu items were slow to open or would not open at all. I managed a speed test and my internet connection is fine. Antivirus programs would open but scans would not start. I tried to shut down and restart and it won't boot past the windows icon screen with the spinning wheel of death. It won't respond to attempts to start in boot menu, or bios. After a few tries to restart, it tries and fails to open the auto repair window. The screen just goes blank except for the mouse cursor. Didn't really sound like the cmos battery but I replaced it just to try. No luck. Any thoughts? I've never seen anything like this before and I'm out of ideas.

Thanks!
 
Hi,

This issue has been plaguing me for a month. I have had the same Microsoft password for years. Suddenly, my HP Envy started to not accept my Microsoft password, saying it was incorrect. Although, my other devices (tablet and iPhone) accepted it and would log me in. So, I changed my Microsoft password and that didn?t work either. Does anyone have any solutions that have proven effective for this very problem? Thanks
