I'm in the process of renaming about 13K photos using an AutoHotKey script to speed things up. I'm using the OS (Win 10 Home) to display the pics: START>THIS PC>SPARE DRIVE D then double-click on the folder containing the pics. I have File Explorer (in full screen) displaying 16 pics (files) as EXTRA LARGE ICONS.

I select the first file to rename then start the AHK script. The script issues an F2 keypress (rename), outputs a string which I then add to and press RETURN. The script then causes a jump (right arrow) to the next file and start the process all over again. I can continue doing this for several screen refills. As each bottom row of files is renamed, all the files on screen move up one row to access the next row of files.

With an annoying frequency, without any keys pressed either by me or the script, I'm suddenly looking at the top of the file list; the first 16 files I've already renamed. Focus is still on the file selected when this happens but it's now off-screen and the script is locked up.

Lest you think the script has anything to do with this, as an experiment I've started File Explorer, moved down several screens worth of files and then walked away for a while without starting the script. When I come back, I find that I'm once again looking at the top of the file list.

UPDATE: It occurred to me that even though I wasn't using that part of the script in the above experiment, the entire script was always running ... Read more

Hello.My screen has since first month flickered and gone black.Sometime a small press on top of the screen will do the trick, but as soon as I release it it normally goes black again.Unfortunately I am working abroad on ships and is in need of my computer daily. That has forced me to check various fixes online, and I have done following to have it running.1. Opened up and retighted the screws that holds the motherboard, this helped for some time.2. Fiddled with the connector that connects the touch screen to the mother board. At first this seemed to be the solution, and i built up with some vulk tape to press at the connector when I attached back the bottom cover.3. After a few days the flickering started again, and it was harder to "restore" it back by pressing the connector. Found out that if pressing slightly from both sides in lower left or right corner stopped the flickering/fading and screen returned to normal state. So for now I have a binder clip mounted over screen and backside in lower left corner. This is the solution for this problem, however just a temporary one...For me this seems like some kind of grounding issue. Could you please advise what I need to do for get this screen in a proper working condition. Wbr
On the P52 specs, it says that it can drive 4 independent displays, and for the Thunderbolt ports, the max resolution is [email protected] But what is the max resolution at 60Hz? Can I have the 4k laptop screen, plus two 4k external monitors individually connected to the two Thunderbolt ports, all running at 4k and 60Hz? (when I say 4k, i mean 3840x2160) Link to spec:https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20P52/ThinkPad_P52_Platform_Specification... For reference, here are the specs for the other video ports:[email protected] (DisplayPort via Mini DisplayPort cable)[email protected] (HDMI)Note, I prefer to avoid the HDMI port if possible, due to issues from a P50 I'm currently using, no idea if they have been fixed or not in the P52.
I have just acquired a refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad T430 laptop. It has had Windows 7 Professional cleanly (re)installed.  I have come across a slightly odd problem and would welcome advice. I noticed that on initial boot up, a boot menu-screen flashed up very briefly with two options - 'Boot to Windows', or 'Restore the original Windows Image'. The latter choice came with a warning note at the bottom of the menu screen that this would erase all existing data. In any case the delay default is only about 2 secs, because if 'Restore Original Image' is not selected (and I have no wish to do so) it then boots up by default into Win7. Comment: I have other computers with Win7 installed and have never seen this menu appear on booting any of them. When I looked at the hard drive partitions, I noticed that there were already three primary partitions on the hard drive: 100MB System Reserved (which is normal and to be expected), 13GB Recovery, and the main Win7 partition. I had been thinking of installing Linux Mint as dual-boot alongside Win7.  However when I began running the Mint installer, I noticed that it said there were "multiple OSs already on the system". Comment: I thought that a bit odd, but assumed that maybe it was seeing the existing Recovery partition as containing a duplicate, or image, of the Win7 OS. I therefore did not proceed with the Linux dual boot install.  I want to do so using EasyBCD.  But before doing so I need...

My old computer died and the hard drive infromation was copied to a CD.  I bought a new computer with Vista and would like to tranfer the old computer information to the new computer.  Vista Easier Transfer seemingly only works with two computers. What do you do in the case where you have only one computer and the old computer information on a CD?
When battery #2 is nearly drained, I get a message that the computer has low power (it says 48%), then a few minutes later it shuts down.  I turn it back on, check the battery status, says number #2 battery is 5%, says the other is around 60%.  Five minutes later it shuts down again.  Turn it back on, and it runs over a half hour before I shut the system down.  Why is it not switching over to the nearly full  battery?  Where should I be looking to fix this?

Hi, so I bought a ThinkPad L390 yoga that didn't come with an active pen... but said it had a pen slot, so I bought a pen along with it. Thing is, there is a plug in the slot (see photo) that I cannot remove by even quite strong pushing and pulling (unwilling to resort to more drastic measures, for obvious reasons). Is it possible at all to use the slot? Any help would be much appreciated.

This isn't exactly programming, but came to me that this might be the best place to ask this question, and the filetype isn't unknown pre se, its just unknown how the data is stored, and unknown to Windows OS. Filetype is a .STO file, a setupfile of sorts.

I want to read the contents of a file (a proprietary filetype) outside of the native application. The data can be exported to HTML from within the app, and I'm thinking its mostly alpha-numeric values.

All I want to do deally is compare data values from one file against another file to review the differences.
Whn I do look at the exported HTML file, its in a horrible format, that doesn't really relate to the way the data is displayed in the App, thus making comparisons difficult.

I guess I figure that if I could read the data, I could reorder it somehow, maybe as an Excel document... for the purpose of comparison.

This isn't a brand new build. This problem has been happening for a while now, but when I try and boot up my computer everything starts to run normally then the graphics card will stop running. Nothing else stops working, just the graphics card. I have fixed it before by just unplugging and plugging things back in until it would work, but even when it works eventually the graphics card will stop mid game if I'm playing a game.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello Everyone! Sadly, the main\system\mother board (FRU#: 90003676) of my G510 became busted around a week ago, but individual parts are still in working condition. 90003676 is hard to come by, even when looking up used parts. So I was wondering if I could replace the busted main board with another type of G510 main board? Like with a 90003691 or a '92 as these are the common ones on ebay \ aliexpress \ amazon. How can I tell the difference in specs between boards in general? Are there any kind of manual or website that contains information about board specs? Here are some of the specs of my G510. Hope it helps figuring out any issues regarding compatibility: DescriptionCommodity TypePart NumberVIWGS MB UMA QC (to be replaced)SYSTEM BOARD90003676M471B5173BH0-YK0 4GB DDR3L 1600MEMORY11201966Intel I7-4700MQ 2.4G 6M C0 4cPGA (Intel G3 socket) CPUPROCESSOR102500540Intel HD4600GPU - Thank you for all the support in advance! Peter
I have a 10 year old Lenovo X220 originally came with Windows 7 Pro, last year I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and it worked fine but was very slow. I recently upgraded RAM from 4 to 16 Gig and replaced the original HD with a Samsung SSD. The SSD migration had no problems and I'm enjoying a much faster boot up and improved performance. I'm still running the original BIOS version 1.11 and I'm interested in installing the latest BIOS 1.46 but the X220 BIOS Download page only shows OS Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP. It does NOT mention Windows 10. https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS018805 Do you think it's safe to install this BIOS version 1.46 if my X220 is running Windows 10? The reason I'd like to install the BIOS is because the X220 still won't recognize an external USB keyboard, either docked or undocked. The laptop keyboard works fine and  I've used the Windows Device Manager to delete the Standard PS/2 Keyboard from the Keyboard folder, and I've deleted and reinstalled all of the USB Hubs and Controllers in the Unversal Serial Bus controllers folder. Still won't recognize the external USB keyboard. Thanks, Joe

Getting all the possible BSOD errors on my NEW (replaced) X1 Extreme. That's disgusting considering I've paid around £3000 for the top configuration. I had this as a replacement because the previous one had screen issues, WiFi card non working etc  I'm totally sending this in for refund this time and I'm probably going for a different brand this time!
Hello,  i unboxed a new ThinkPad P1 and installed a fresh Version of Windows 10 Enterprise. I just now saw that it doesnt charge the internal battery or does any signs of detecting that i plugged in the ac adapter. It also doesnt turn on if ac is plugged. It runs fine on battery only but it has only about 30 percent left.  Im new to Lenovo so my question here is which troubleshooting approach should i go now? Can this be a Software issue caused by my fresh install of Windows?  Ive read many confusing things about the Emergency Reset Button on the backside of the device.  Any comments are appreciated.  Kind regards, Ingo
Hello, I just upgraded T440p's CPU from i5 4300M to i7 4810MQ. However, it seems some setting values are set wrong. When I check by Intel XTU, the Follwing Values are different from ordinary 4810MQ users : Turbo Boost Power Max : 37WTurbo Boost Short Power Max : 47WProcessor Current Limit : 112.000A(It looks values for i5 4300M - as TDP is 37W) and Each value should be 47W, 58W, 70.000A(I googled for i7 4810MQ)  I corrected the values by XTU function temporarily.  Anyone have ideas or experience?(or How do I request this to lenovo support department?) Thanks in advance. 
I have a pending install MediaTek Inc. - Other hardware - MediaTek PreLoader USB VCOM (Android) - Error 0x80070002. I think this caused my PC to crash. How do I get rid of this unwanted install
I bought this for my father 18 months ago and he only used it to play flight sim. He passed about a year ago and the PC was working fine, but was powered down since then. I tried turning it on this morning and nothing happened. No lights, no display, but when I opened it up (to try removing CMOS battery) I heard a quiet but continous beeping. It was on a surge protector and never had problems with power surges at his house. Removing CMOS battery and holding power button didn't work. Thanks,Floyd C.
Howdy, I hope someone can help me. First, I am 72 years old and not very computer literate so I really need help.

I have Compaq CQ57 with no operating system. I installed a new hard drive. I bought the Windows 7 operating system from Compaq to install on this computer. This computer originally came with Windows 7. The disc will start to load and then freeze. I contacted the people that I bought the operating system from and they said that I need to initialize the new hard drive. I asked them to help me and they said I could find all that information that I needed on the internet. Yes, there are plenty of sites that tell me how to initialize a hard drive, BUT, they all begin, "Open Disc Manager". Since I have a new hard drive, I do not have Disc Manager.

Can someone help me install the new operating system on my computer?

Thank you
 
Hi All,

Have a home built desktop PC circa 2010 running Windows 10. Several months ago I had the same problem where the computer just freezes with inactivity- no mouse response or keyboard, cannot open task manager, need to do hard shutdown. I changed the power settings so it doesn't sleep. Went through Windows 10 repair- said it couldn't repair. After a couple of days of trying repair multiple times and other things it seemed to resolve itself or I can't remember the details.

Well started happening again the past two weeks progressively getting worse. Tried Windows repair a couple of times- said it couldn't repair. Check for new drivers in device manager for all the drivers- didn't help, Windows said all had appropriate drivers. Tried going back to a restore point in November. Still having issues. Have not installed new software or anything.

Any ideas besides re-installing windows and all my programs?

Trying to make an image backup and it always freezes. Have a back up from a couple of months ago I could always use to restore.

Thanks for your help in advanced!

Thanks,
Marc

I factory reset the laptop and now I?m unable to left click on the windows start button or the Cortana search bar.

A few days back my laptop stopped playing videos that I had saved on my laptop (in MP4 format). This happened simultaneously with both VLC player and Windows Media Player. Anyone know how to fix this? Videos on YouTube still play for me (I use firefox)

It may not be related but 2 days after this, I lost sound on my Laptop. How do I fix this? The volume control is still there and moves the same but I get no sound at all.

Thank you. Please help me to fix this
 
Note: Originally this post was about what i thought was a broken hdmi port, but it turned out to be due to the monitor being too old. The original problem has been fixed but i'm still a little confused, so maybe someone can shed some light on this. So i've been using my t480s for about half a year without problems, it's a great machine. However, i came over something which suprised me a little which someone here might be able to answer. Is there limited support for older resolutions when it comes to external monitors through the HDMI? I've been using several WQHD and 4K displays, but when i tried to connect my old 720p DVI screen through an adapter it absolutely refused to recognize it as an output. Is there some kind of limitation here that i am not aware of? This happens in both windows and linux. The monitor works just fine on a few year old mac i have laying around.

Over the past couple of weeks i have been getting a BSOD while playing most games, i am going to assume it's a Cooling System/Thermal Paste Problem it's now coming up to two years old and it is a bit of a nuisance.

This is the system i currently have:

i7 6700k CPU
Nvidia Ge force GTX 1060 Sky lake 6gb
16 GB Hyper X fury DDR4 RAM
Asus H110 m-a Motherboard
corsair 750w PSU
Corsair Case

I have diagnosed in order - That it is not the PSU because everything comes on fine and 750w is more then enough to power all components.
Graphics Card works fine and i can go to ultra settings.
Done a Memory Test and memory passed 3 times with 0 errors.

I don't think the motherboard i have is great for high custom games but it's not given me any problems before, maybe i could get a better one but i don't want to waste money unless i really have to.
Case could be a little bigger because it is pretty cramped but again it's not a major issue.
Only thing that would make any sense to me is the CPU Cooler and/or Thermal Paste has Deteriorated and when it gets too hot then it crashes and gives me a blue screen.

What Thermal Paste and Cooler Would anybody suggest.

I have been having issues with my battery on my T480 lately. I will have the laptop running around 50% battery and sometimes try to restart it but when I do, the laptop will not power back up. The Lenovo bios screen will post but when the Windows 10 circle starts spinning the computer fully shuts itself off and loses power and I cannot turn it back on until I plug the charger in, but when Windows loads it says I have battery. Yesterday I was using the laptop and when it went from 50 to 49% battery the laptop fully died and shut off and would not power on again until I plugged in the charger, yet showed 49% battery when Windows loaded again. I have been working out in the cold with my laptop and I am not sure if that is or has affected it some how but I can't keep having these types of issues when I need to be able to use my computer in the field. I know Lenovo used to have a tool to reset and deplete and recharge the battery, does this still exist? I ran the diagnostic tool but it finished instantly saying both batteries were fine with a time on the diagnostic of 0 seconds. Not sure if there is another tool I can be using to try and get this working properly again.
Hey there,

I have just built my own PC, downloaded windows 10 onto a USB stick threw a macbook and followed the correct procedure to make it a bootable device. Every time I manage to get threw the language part but then when it asks to select a driver to install there is no option, a message saying 'missing media (..)'. I have looked online and have tried a few things but still no response. Any help would be appreciated!

Many thanks!
 
Salve, sono nuovo del forum e vorrei sottoporre un problema con il mio lenovo B590, al quale ho sostituito l'hard disk in quanto "defunto" e sul quale vi era installato il S.O. windows 8, vorrei portare il S.O. a windows 7 in quanto lo uso con maggior praticità, ma non riesco a far partire ne da cd ne da usb il sistema per installare il nuovo sistema operativo. Qualcuno può aiutarmi? grazie infinite.
Hello, My laptop is Yoga 71015IKB, it came with 256GB LITEON CV3-8D256 SSD. Now i want to upgrade it with 512GB but in confusion what SSD to take. The preferred one is Samsung 970 Pro or Evo series. Can you please help to identify what my motherboard supports ragarding SSDs? Does it support NVMe and if yes what is the maximum speed? Thanks,Artur
Whilst the laptop is turned off, there's no problem with charging. If I leave the laptop charging it reaches full charge relatively quickly. However, if the laptop is on, the charging status does not progress and remains unchanged all the time. I've noticed that the charging icon goes on and off intermitently, so in the end the charging status does not change at all: It doesn't charge but it doesn't discharge either.The laptop battery is new. I changed it because I thought it could be the root cause of the problem, but it is not. Grateful for any hints on the problem.
So I just got a brand new Lenovo Thunderbolt3 Dock Gen2 to use with my lovely T480. The dock works ok but I have a big problem everytime I put my laptop to sleep at the end of the day. In the next day when I wake my machine (by pressing the power button on the Gen2 dock) my system wakes up fine but my external keyboard doesn't work.I have to reboot my laptop to get the keyboard working again. Anyone have dealt with the same problem with Lenovos docks? All drivers and firmwares are installed from Lenovos site and the Thunderbolt3 software (the older app not the new UWP) sees the dock fine. Tried to unplug and plug back the USB keyboard but still it doesn't recognize or work.

I have an issue with yoga 720 15 touchpad and i am not certain how to proceed. Problem is that whenever I scroll with two fingers and then click on left mouse, cursor gets stuck until I release it and doesn't select anything. You can even move cursor after scrolling quite the bit and when you press left button cursor gets stuck. Problem is frustrating when browsing web. Lenovo has already switched touchpad twice and motherboard once, and now they suggest I send laptop to them for futher inspection. But what are they gonna realisticly do at this point?  Another problem I have now with this new motherboad is that 3.5mm jack isn't correctly aligned with case, so you basically have to force it in and out, which I assume might damage something in long term. So what do you suggest? Is it worth sending this laptop for couple of weeks to lenovo?
I had broken a screen, and had to replace it. The screen was broken, but the backlight worked fine.After replacing, the backlight doesn't work. I can see the screen itself works (when I highlight it with a flashlight).I've reconnected the old screen (cracked one) but the backlight doesn't work anymore here.  I did the replacement with the laptop being turned off, but the battery was inside.I also had a bit of hard time peeling up the connector from the old screen (it has been glued really solid). Could I have broken the connector?If it's not the connector (I'll try with the new cable soon) what else can it be?I know the older laptops had inverters and fuses. I believe this one has LED backlight. If so, there's no inverter, but are there fuses?

I'm looking for a free file sharing service with a fairly large amount of space, that offers a direct download link to anyone.

Basically what I want to do is this: I want to showcase my own free stock footage on YouTube, with a direct download link in the description. So that when people click the link the download starts immediately, without redirecting to another page or having to login somewhere.

If someone can point me in the right direction, it will be deeply appreciated.
 
Hi all,I have a ThinkCentre M720q.I'm desperately looking for "Line-in port features" or at least the option (via software) to use the Mic input as a Line-in port instead. Over the past days I have carried out numerous tests on the M720q units as far as video and audio capture are involved. While there were absolutely no issues as far as video capture using a third party device over usb3 is concerned, I cannot say the same for audio capture. I updated all software, drivers, firmware and everything else that came to mind, in the hope of getting a jack input selection window or being able to choose/change the scope/purpose of the Mic input port on the unit to no avail. Is the Mic input port re-taskable to start off with and if so, how do I go about changing it?Is there a particular cable I should use, or some additional software/bios setting I need to install, set or activate in order to be able to change the properties of the Mic input port (pink) to Line-in (blue)? If the M720q is not the correct model,Would you so kind to suggst a model Lenovo (Tower, SFF, Tiny) that has the Line-in port features? Thank you in advance!

Hey there, Recently, I purchased the Yoga 730-15IKB, and up until about three days ago, it ran fine with little-to-no quirks. About three days ago, the laptop began to act very erratic. It began to freeze randomly; no response from the keyboard, trackpad or touch screen. I chalked it up to be a Windows error at first. After restarting several times, the problem persisted: the laptop continued to hang, yet the screen stayed on, the keyboard stayed lit and the fans varied in power over time. Nothing dumped from a BSOD, no reliability history report, only the fact that it shut down unexpectedly due to me holding down power. After several clean Windows installations, update rollbacks, driver reinstallations/updates/uninstallations, nothing has changed, and it seems that the problem only gets worse over time. At the time of posting this, this will be my third Windows reinstallation, and now it freezes in the midst of setup. Here's what I've tried: Reinstalling/Restoring WindowsRan chkdsk several times, no errorsRan the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool, no errorsRan Lenovo Vantage's hardware diagnostic tool, no errorsReset BIOS settings multiple timesChecked MSI Afterburner and monitored CPU temps, they stayed pretty low Checked if the problem was limited to battery power, it happened on AC as wellChecked reliability history, no errors aside from unexpected shutdownsChecked event logs, nothing aside from apparent power throttling and some strange COM errors, yet ...
