Sir, I am using lenovo Z50. I got a problem like my cursor is freezing automatically and it will work for a while if you press esc button and if i am typing ,cursor is automatically moving to the first in the dialogue box and i am not able to scroll down, if i make to scroll down, it is going top automatically.  I can only select/click on the first item on the page, say if I want to open a folder, only the 1st folder will open I can't able to open other folder. Can you please fix my problem sir and i am eagerly waiting for your reply sir.
Hi, I wonder if someone can explain how this can happen. I have two Lenovo ThinkPad L. I have one L380 with the lid closed. On top of this L380, I have a L390. When I put it on top, the touchpad and the internal keyboard disable itself. When I do this when I'm logged in into my Windows session, I receive the message "Rotation automatique active" (something like "automatic rotation enabled") on the top left of my screen. Windows also display a toast notification that ask if I want to enable tablet mode. Sometime, the internal screen also shut down. The screen shutdown can even happen when Windows is not booted (still in bios). The L390 doesn't even have a touch screen, but the L380 have one. I just tested and it does the same thing if I invert the computers: L390 with closed lid and the L380 on top. I sent the laptop twice to repair before understanding the problem was caused because the laptop was on top of another. I had a red flag when I had the same problem on another L390 so I finally found where the problem was coming.

Hello,  After fresh installation of Windows 10 (genuine PRO from Microsoft webpage), I begin to losing connection on my Wi-fi. It stops working after some time, every time in different intervals and I must manually reconnect. First I change some settings that I found on google related to this issue, but nothing works. So next suspect was wifi card, so I made an upgrade to Intel 9260. After the update, Lenovo Vantage software doesn't make any updates, after 15% return unresponsible server error. I already updated the driver manually for the wifi card.  in short:1. Dropping wifi connection2. Vantage doesn't work after a hardware update Do you have any solutions for that? Anything to try before reinstalling Windows again? Best regards and TIA 
I have followed instructions to install n1etf08w.exe as per https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-....There is no setup.bat after extraction but only a FwUpdateTool.exe, which eventually manages to get NVM Firmware version to upgrade to 25.00:  But even after this, my external monitor is activated but stays black, no image shows up.Moreover, the whole vide system performance is extremaly sluggish as soon as an HDMI cable or device is connected, although there is almost no CPU or disk activity. This used to work, problem occurred after base firmware and drivers updates, possibly also after Win10 update, not sure which has been the triggering factor. What esle can I do to fix this? It is a rea problem since I cannot even use a projector.
I have a T460 and I'm trying to remember the supervisor password. I have this option enabled in the BIOS and I know that if I input the wrong password 3 consecutive times the computer gets blocked and can't be used until the correct password Is entered. The question Is: if I input the wrong password once, then boot the system, then go to the BIOS again, is the count restarted (as I'm not making a consecutive try) or the system remembers the previous one even if It doesn't display it under the lock at the next BIOS access?

Hello! I have been struggling with this problem for a long time (about 1-2 months), but only now I thought of turning to this forum.  ______________________________________The Main Specifications: notebook (Lenevo G505s) processor (AMD a8-4500m) bios (83CN53WW (3.0)) AMD AGESA RichlandPI  v1.1.0.2Details in the file (open txt) : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1S7CkItyWebEZaMoYeExj160QFrx6Y91I______________________________________What is the essence, the drain frequency of my processor is 1.9 GHz, it is currently running at 900 GHz. I don?t know what it is connected with, which I already did not do, tried all types of battery power (balanced, etc.), tried to overclock the processor, but it does not move from a dead center in the 9x multiplayer. I updated the BIOS, it did not help. Carefully cleaned the computer from dust, replaced the thermal grease, re-installed Windows. If I have Windows 7 Max 64x. The only thing I suspect is my battery.

I have a Dell with a micro card reader built in. It can read four different types of cards and they are labeled H:\, I:\, J:\, and K:\. If I put a card into the reader, that specific drive (i.e. K:\) shows up in Disk Manager and I can change the letter
designation. The problem that I'm having is the other three slots won't show up in Disk Manager unless I insert a card. I don't have the other types of cards and don't want to buy them. Is there a way to change the drive letter designation of the card readers
without having a card inserted in them? Thanks,

Hi All, On my T410s with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, the "Safely remove hardware and eject media" function is very slow.It need take about 30~40 seconds from me clicking on the safely remove hardware icon to the menu popping up. But if I open the "Devices and Printer" in advance, it's only need one second to show the menu. Is there anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks,

Hi! New Yoga owner here. In tablet mode, the on screen keyboard does not automatically pop up when touching a text box. I saw that there was a issue with chrome, but for all text boxes I have to manually open and close the keyboard. Now, when I first started up the laptop it was working. The only things I have done since unboxing is install chrome, firefox and malwarebytes; uninstall the office trials and mcafee trial; and run the updates (the only critical one being a bios firmware update). Any ideas on how to fix this? I have looked through the settings to no avail. Am I missing something? A driver may be?  Thanks!

I have a Lenovo Y50-70 model 20378 and I also recently bought the Lenovo Power Bank. I charged the power bank, got 4 lights, tried it on the computer (off) and the charge light flashes on the laptop. I start the laptop and once windows 10 has started, I get a compatibility error popup box and a link to buy a power adapter, which ironically enough takes me to the page with power adapters, including the Power Bank.Seems to be an issue where it may not supply enough power to run the laptop while it is on?Power icon on the status bar shows a red X. I found some fine print on the power bank on the Lenovo site but not other resellers - not for laptops with discreet graphics... this should have been made a bit more prominent in the description. Did I waste $100 buying this?
This is really getting very annoying. After almost every microsoft patchday, several different lenovo thinkpad wont boot anymore. they are stuck forever at the black screen with the little dots spinning in circle.after turning off and on again for 2 or 3 times you get the blue troubleshooting screen where i press 4 for safe mode. then i see that windows is reverting back updates and restarts but this is still not enough. another 2 or 3 times turn of and on again required to get into the safe mode again. its required to uninstall the latest installed update and then the devices also reboot into normal mode again.this must be a thinkpad issue because it never happens on workstation and only on thinkpad laptops.anyone else have that problem? what can i do to avoid this annoying problem?

Hello:
Reading instructions on line about how to "install" MS Precision Mouse could drive anyone up the wall. I have Win 10, USB Adapter BT400 (ASUS; Bluetooth 4.0; since my computer is not Bluetooth-able), and drivers installed for the adapter.
Are there any simple instructions for what I do next ? What I have seen is pushing a button at the bottom of the mouse, lights 1-3 will light up and some kind of weird sequence (and you can actually see the numbers 1, 2, 3 if you scan the mouse with an electron
microscope), although, to be sure of inducing failure, no explanation is provided as to what these light are for.

Kindly, any sane person out there, please help.

I had Grants tool installed in PSE7, the laptop died . I have a new laptop running
Win10, installed PSE7 and want to install Grant's tool. I can't remember what I had to do to incorporate into the effect folder of PSE7.

I think I had to change something in the registry to install Grant's into the PSE7 effect folder.
Does anybody remember how it was done?
 
I see that a few Yoga models including the 730-13IKB have Alexa support, however it appears the 730-15IKB is not on the list? List and info about Alexa for Yoga is here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht506718 Is this planned in the future or is there some reason why Lenovo has decided to not extend Alexa to the higher end models of the 730? I really hope they plan on adding support! 
hi
i want to get my actual local ip address, but it's return multiple ip addresses include other network adapters or my internet ip. is there any way to filter result to return only my actual local ip address ?

Hello,
It's a 13" model (SVP13223CGB) came with an internal 100gb Samsung XP941 Series Form Factor M.2 2280 Capacity 128gb Host Interface PCI-Express 2.0 x4

I want to increase the internal storage, not add a usb drive etc. I don't know what is a sales pitch or what is true.

1.
I was told by a retailer that the only compatible drive that is bigger is a
SAMSUNG XP941 MZHPU512HCGL-00004(0) M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Solid State Drive - OEM

which is old and very expensive and only 512gb.

2.
I also read that newer drives like the
SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 1TB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4
are backwards compatible with this 2014 laptop. And would work but slower. I am not worried about speed but better memory size.



3.
can somebody please give me their honest advise please. I don't want to spend the money on something that won't work because it's not compatible. I really thought that heaps of people would have already done this upgrade but I can't seem to find much modern info. It's no good looking at info that was around 5-6 years ago.
I cant use any adaptors or things like that as it must fit straight in like for like. Thanks for reading hope you can advise me. cheers!
 
Yoga 730-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) Machine Type:81CU I used the Crucial.com scanner that scans your machine and recommends compatible memory for my laptop.  It suggested the following: Crucial 8GB Single DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory - CT8G4SFD824A On paper and by the specs of the stick of RAM it should be more than capable of working in my machine, however when the stick is inserted it lowers the overall system ram speed to 2133mhz instead of 2400mhz which is not acceptable.  This was verified in task manager, as well as CPU-Z and HWINFO programs. I'm not saying this is Lenovo's fault, or Crucials for that matter, and I have opened a case with Crucial to get that stick of memory removed from the suggested list if it cannot meet the same speeds as the built in 8GB of system RAM that is soldered on the motherboard. Are there any other dual-ranked RAM sticks that are compatible?  I'm currently sifting through the document of RAM that's compatible on Lenovo's site and maybe I'll get lucky but there's a lot of suggestions there for alternate memory that will work. I wonder if this is something Lenovo could fix via a BIOS update? Are there any other users out there that were able to get a 8GB module to run at 2400mhz?  If so I'd love to hear what model of memory you used.  Thanks!
Hi guys,  I have bought this tablet 3rd Gen for several months.

Hi all,

Since many years we are using custom BMP files as icon for one of our programs. That has always worked correctly, until Windows 8 (and Windows Server 2012) came. When we create the shortcut on our desktop and we browse to the network location where the BMP
file is and we click ok, we see the icon correctly in the "preview", but as soon as I click OK twice and I go back to the desktop, the shortcut is white, with no icon.

But when I place the BMP file on the local drive and I browse to it, it displays correctly in the previewer AND on the desktop.
This behaviour occurs on both Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. Who knows how to resolve this?
I can't get into my Google Chrome . . what could have happened? How do I fix it? Do I have to install it once again?
 
What just happened? Installed windows update today and after it is done my laptop performs like a 10yo tablet. It goes only to 0.41Ghz, even under load by cinebench, CPU temp 55'C. This peak you can see is when I connected charging for a sec. This is a critical issue, please provide a solution, it is not usable on battery right now. I checked all my battery settings in vantage and windows - all set to performance with active cooling, vantage set on performance, all seems to be fine, just before the windows update all was fine I could play some games with no issues.    
So, my screen cracked and i sent my laptop to squaretrade, who fixed it. I just got it back and was hoping to draw, but my pen wont work on my screen. I downloaded the most recent driver i could find and restarted my laptop and still, no progress. Restarting wacom services also doesnt do anything. In dveice manager, i cant even find wacom listed anywhere. To add onto that, when i touch the screen, its saying my touch is not where it actually is. Its locating my touch as about an inch to the left, and half an inch up from where my finger actually is.  Im pretty sure my drivers are all up to date, i updated my laptop a while ago to see if that fixed the issue. It seems like they replaced my screen with the right one too. When i first turned on my laptop after getting it, it seemed like the technician had downloaded some files onto my computer, and i assume they were drivers. The folder and files are shown in the screenshot. didnt know if maybe he installed one of these and it was somehow messing with my touchscreen.  completely lost. unsure what the issue is, and have no idea where to ask for help, so here I am. My laptop is a Lenovo yoga/ideapad flex 6-14IKB, version 10.0.17134 Build 17134
are drivers available for this or LaserJet 5

Hey guys,

Built my first PC about a year or so ago and I've been slowly upgrading over the months, but, I've had endless problems. From games crashing, massive fps drops, stuttering, and my utilization is often below 50% on my GPU and CPU while i game. I always keep drivers up to date, drives defragged and optimized. Water cooled, so temps are never an issue. Over time it seems like the more money i put in the worse my PC performs. It was tolerable at first but the past few days my frames have almost halved in most games and i have no idea why. Everything i know about computers i learned online, so, i'm sure i'm missing many things. I'm sick of friends with 1060s getting better performance, hopefully what i payed for can be saved, thanks!

I've been told my best option is to do a full format and reinstall, any second opinions?

After checking userbenchmark, i notice my ssd is terrible, could that be the main issue regarding fps drops?

Example, csgo i normally had an average of 300-350 fps now im down to 100-150)

I just had the fan replaced, and now when I use F4 to put the laptop in sleep mode and then close the lid, it remains in sleep mode when I open the lid.  Same thing occurs when I close the lid (no F4) for sleep mode and then open the lid.  However, when I select Sleep on the Windows 7 Start Menu and close the lid, the laptop does resume when I open the lid. NOTES:- Before replacing the fan, I used F4 for sleep and resume, because when I close the lid I would sometimes find the fan running the next morning- BIOS is up-to-date- Keyboard and mouse are set to wake PC- Power Options Settings:   - Allow hybrid sleep set to OFF and Hibernate set to NEVER (As they always have been)   - USB Settings > Disabled USB selective suspend settings  (These were enabled) While this isn't a huge problem, I would like to have things working as before, preferably without having to go back to the Lenovo certified shop. Thank you in advance for your help. Jeff

At the end of my patience with it.

I was running into issues with Prepar3d v4.5 on my desktop to the point where i decided i needed to uninstall everything and restart again. The base for which Prepar3d sits on says you must run as administrator when installing so i did this. Now im running into nagging reminders and pre confirmations..Are you sure you want to do this/This requires Administrator privileges and the like...or trying to edit a simple word cfg file now fails to save after editing and wants to save as in a new format!?

Hi.  I've got the T450S mated to the Pro Dock series 40A1. I cannot get the Pro Dock to work with two external monitors when using the Display Port. Dual Monitors work when using the VGA + DVI-D combination, but when connecting a monitor using the Display Port, it shuts off the displays to the other monitors connected with either the VGA or the DVI-D connections. So, VGA + DVI-D = Dual Monitors. Display Port = Single monitor only. Is this by design? I've already updated the firmware to the recommended version based on other threads. Thanks.
The S-key on my brand new X390 Yoga is not working properly. It is not sensitive enough. Can you please let me know what to do about it? I am very unhappy given the pricetag and how much this keyboard is advertised.

I have setup an older Dell laptop with WinXP SP3 to run a small stereo system through it's headphone output. It has now been disconnected permanently from the internet, so no updating, antivirus or browsers will be needed again.
After the initial setup I turned Automatic updates off, but how can I get rid of the popup warning on the screen about that every time the computer is started? I would switch to Linux, but I use DCArt Forensics for digitally cleaning and enhancing old vinyl records, which does not work in Linux.
And do you see any problem with the laptop running on the power cord all the time?

Thanks.

Can anybody, for sure, tell me if there are any support for AC network card for Yoga 2 Pro. I have been searching around on different forums and some say they have found a card. In all cases, if someone have made this working, there are several post's telling that it doesn't work. It seems to be some BIOS version that doesn?t have this limitation.I bought an Intel Wireless AC 7260NGW card and get the message: "Unauthorized wireless network card is plugged in. Power off and remove it." I have read about there is a way renaming the ID or something on the card, but then I need a computer that support this card to do that. Is there anybody with a solution? And why do Lenovo make this so very difficult? A superb computer with such stupid limitation. AC network is not something only in the future, it is now and into the future.
