Hello together, I'm using a new Thinkpad L380 for about 4 weeks and have been experiencing battery drain issues when off since the first day.After all possible corrections found on this forum (Bios Update, Win10 QuickStart, Managment Foundation... and some more) it now comes down to a final observation:When I shut down the computer and the battery threshold in Lenovo Vantage is off, it will keep its charge for two or more days without loosing a single percent of battery charge.If I shut off the computer with battery threshold activated (e.g. after using it at a docking station), the charge will decrease by approx. 6% every 12 hours, so after a weekend without use more than 30% of the battery charge has disappeared. I was very surprised to find out, that this for sure is the only remaining issue, but I can repeat it over and over again and everytime I deactivate the battery threshold function, my battery will keep its charge when shut down. Is there any solution or improved Lenovo Vantage functionality (current is 4.12.13) known or to be expected to solve this issue? Thank you for any helpful reply

Hi, I am using an HP windows 10 desktop computer, HP deskjet printer, and Serif craft artist software
I have been successfully using these together for over a year, and have previously created new forms in the control panel, so I can print on different size card and paper.
Today, when I went to print my design, it was letting me select the correct paper size as normal, but then would not apply it.
I went to the control panel to check the sizes, and created a new form, deleting the old one - but now it does not come up as an option to print this size in the forms
The size is still visible when I look on the printer settings within the control panel though - so why is it not visible to select when I try to print?
I have tried re-starting my computer and re-launching the software a couple of times now, but nothing changes.

I have recently bought a lenovo yoga 920 FHD and it heats a lot. Core temperature while running simple applications are above 60 C. Can anyone say me whats the normal temperature range for this laptop?  I found a solution to solve the fane noise problem from lenovo forum. But that decreases the PC performance.  Also when I feel the air ventilation hidden in the hinge only the extreme two holes give off air. The remaining 4 holes in between doesn?t. Is this normal?  Plus when i run apps like HWDmonitir or speed fan, it doesn't show any fans nor speed.  SEEKING HELP ASAP 
x1 yoga 2nd gen notebook.product # 20JDA01UAUAll latest system updates installed. I have created a disk password in the bios for security purposes. This works fine, except that when the laptop is docked, I cannot use an external  usb keyboard to enter in the bios password at all.. If I do not have a disk password, I can use the keyboard in this configuration to enter and manage the bios itself. Everything else works fine in this configuration when using Windows 10 Pro. How do I overcome this? 

Windows Active Directory domain, functional level = 2008. Single site, single subnet. 2 DC's: 2008 and 2012 R2. 3 member servers. 30 clients - one Win10 and the rest W7.

On Monday morning one of our staff reported that a shortcut on her desktop was not working. She uses a 32bit W7 PC. At the same time, her applications stopped responding - Word, Sage HR, Excel.

After using Task Manager to 'End Process' for Word etc., we restarted Word, but the same unresponsive behaviour ocurred - the application would start, but within seconds became unresponsive.

The path referenced by the shortcut was not recognised by the system, even though it was correct. It is a DFS path S:\

'Computer' was missing from the Start Menu. Using Windows key + E showed that none of the traditional mapped shares or DFS drives were listed and S:\ could not be connected to by typing S:\ in the address bar. However, typing S: in a command prompt changed
to the S:\ drive and 'dir' listed the contents of the drive.

We restarted the PC. Applications now worked, but the shortcut still failed. Computer was still missing from the Start Menu. Restarted once more.

This time, 'Computer' had been replaced with the name of one of the member servers - orion. Orion acts as a data, mail and backup server.

Clicking it, and using Windows key + E brought up 'Computer', but the name Computer was replaced with orion in the address bar. However, the good news is that the drives were now listed... Read more
I need help finding the source of the problem with my PC. It has been a pain to use it for at least a year now.

Every time I go to the internet (email, browsing, youtube etc), my PC malfunctions.

It disconnects itself from the internet. This happens after a short freeze on my PC for about half a second. Also, when watching youtube, it creates a buzzing like sound before the malfunctions happens.

My PC then stops detecting my neighbors' wireless networks and only connects to my router and saying no internet.

To fix this, I go to device manager and disable/enable my wireless adapter. But I will only be able to use the internet for a few minutes before it malfunctions again.

I know its not a router problem because other devices within the house connects fine. Its just my PC.

Second problem is that I'm getting random blue screen crashes especially when my PC is idle. (Bad pool caller, IRQL not less or equal, kernel security check fail, memory management).

I did all that I can to fix the problem. Updating software and hardware, virus check, disk check, memory test, disk clean up, virus/malware check, bios check, system restore and still the same.

Need help Isolating the problem.
Thank you.

I had an Ideapad 100S-11BY with no os installed.After much trial and error I got Ubuntu 17.10 installed and was pleased to see that everything seemed to be working perfectly.I then realised that I had no sound, even after updating all the codecs etc.I believe the problem is that the soundcard is Realtek who have no drivers for this model for Linux.I would like to know if anyone has solved this problem or know of another os that will work on this machine otherwise I might as well just bin this computer.Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi. I have a SL-510 Laptop, and I did a full re-install of windows. The machine is still very slow in the start-up process. On an other machine I updated the firmware (BIOS) and that really sped up the start-up time.I want to do the same ting with this one, but it is not possible to get in contact with Lenovo. After typing in my product, all I get is that this machine no longer has warranty. There is no option to go from there, so it all ends in a loop. If I click Drivers and Downloads, I am taken through the same loop. If I click Contact Us, the same loop again. Is it not possible to get drivers and stuff even though the warranty has expired???PLEASE HELP

Hi. This is my first time posting on this forum, so go easy on me if possible. I recently just purchased a Lenovo Yoga 720 15" (the 4K version) online and have received it today. When I first unbox the laptop and charge it, the laptop charged to a 100%. However, after about 3 to 4 hours of leaving the laptop unplug and replugging the charger again, I was not able to charge the laptop. The laptops indicator lights was not flashing and the settings does not have battery conservation. I have checked and tried everything possible such as using different outlets and the one I originally used to charge the Yoga, but nothing works. I hope that by posting on this forum, someone can be able to help me out solve this problem. Also, the Yoga is at 29%, so attempting anything must be quick or the laptop will go "dead".

I have a old Lenovo Thinkpad that run Windows 7 32 bit. After installed the 64 bit version, I used Lenovo Software to update it's drivers ( include the BIOS ). After that, I noticed my Laptop run hotter than normal, because of the fan speed spin very slow.   I tried to check it by using Lenovo hardware diagnostic, but the software show that test for the fan is unavailable.  
Just today, while browsing around in the power manager, I noticed that the values for "design voltage" and "voltage" under the "battery" tab are different!. The "design voltage" reads 11.10V while the "voltage" reads 12.06V. I have a feeling that this is actually normal...but maybe someone can confirm my suspicions? Out of curiousity, why do these two values differ and what does this mean? I am using using a T510 running on win7 x64, if that is of any help at all.

I replaced the screen assembly (screen and digitizer) on my Thinkpad Yoga 260. The computer boots up and the display appears to work. However the touch screen and digitizer does not. When I go into the device manager-human interface-HID Compliant Touch Screen, the property box states: "Currently this hardware device is not connected to the computer (code 45)". I tried sesearching for new device without luck. Also tried checking for device updates and running the troubleshooting application without luck. Any suggestion or did I get a bad screen? FYI the orginal screen was a Innolux. the new screen is AUO. the new screen is listed as a compatiable with my system

I have not yet used 2fa. I do use a password manager. Do you suggest using 2fa? How easy or hard is using 2fa?

I am looking for suggestions for which 2fa applications or tools I should use for 2fa. What do I need on my desktop pc and on my android phone to use 2fa? Does using 2fa on Android take from data? My plan has unlimited talk and text but not unlimited data. I use Virgin Mobile pay per month. I have a hydro reach phone if that information helps.

If I decide to use 2fa this is one I am thinking about using https://saaspass.com

If using 2fa needs a QR code reader which one do you suggest? Not sure if QR code reader is the right name.

I only want to use free apps and tools.

Which apps/tools do you use for 2fa?

Which sites do you suggest using 2fa on? Should I use 2fa on all sites that offer it or only certain sites?

Any other free options similar to 2fa that would be better to use? If so what?

Any other tips or suggestions about 2fa please let me know.

Thanks for your help.
