Hello, I was wondering why when I installed my 160 GB HDD my keyboard was a little high on that side. Am I using the wrong HDD? Also when I put the drive in I can't put it straight in I have to lift it a little in the sky then it'll go in. First time adding hard drive in any laptop. Thanks for the replies in advance.

I purchased a brand new Ideapad S340-15API (Model: 81NC00D3CY) on Tuesday. I set up successfully, downloaded all Windows updates and used the Lenovo site to check hardware and update all drivers. Everything is now updated and no issues were found. My problem is the internet is very slow. Other devices on the same network measure 25-30Mbps download through Speedtest.net but the S340 only 5-6Mpbs when it's next to the modem and 1Mbps when it is in the next room which is where I want to use it.  I updated the Qualcomm network adapter driver  from device manager but still nothing. I updated BIOS and still the same. How can I solve this? Is there a solution or should I just return the laptop? Would an external USB wifi adapter improve things?

Hey all, I've recently bought the L340-15IRH model and I'm in love with it! Since I bought it from Germany though, the keyboard layout is qwertz and I'd like to replace it with a qwerty one, but I am having trouble finding such.

Hi, I recently bought the l340-I5RH (Gaming laptop, 9th gen i5, GTX 1650), and I noticed that the touchpad seems to be pretty bad in a couple different ways. The first thing I noticed was that the touchpad feels sort of "loose", the physical touchpad plate seems to descend slightly even upon light presses that don't trigger a click. Secondly, I'm unable to move the cursor using the touchpad while during any sort of keypress. This is an issue in things like simple games (Obviously, only the type that I would play with a touchpad, using a USB mouse is fine). I looked into it and it seems like an intentional feature, something about accidental palm movement while typing; however, I followed multiple sets of directions in pursuit of disabling, but my device seems to be missing the options set to remove the function.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

But it seems like it is fairly new (I think it was manufactured in Dec 2019), so I am wondering if the info that I am reading is for older models, because I have seen a lot of different configurations for this laptop online, and not many come with more than 8gb.According to crucial it maxes out at 16 or 20; I guess some motherboaerds have an extra 4gb soldered to the board, as far as i can tell mine does not.PHS memory, on amazon.uk say its 36gb! That is probably 32+4 if you have it soldered to your motherboard; so 32 in my case. If it can handle more than recommended, I wouldnt mind giving it a go, but I would be inclined to order a comparable part from crucial instead of this cheap stuff. Does anyone have experience with upgrading past 16gb, or know if it might work?Thanks in advance!

A:L340-15IRH Gaming Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81LK Ram Upgrade

If I remember correctly, the motherboard of L340 actually supports up to 32GB RAM. While I can't be certain since this is never officially documented.

No respons on typing, but it?s typing zero?s itself, continuously. So can?t get in, cause i can?t type my password. It worked once (trying for days now) so i updated stuff, see if it were drivers, it said it updated the bios, and then it rebooted, i had to login again.. and i got the zero?s back. It?s not the zero button that got stuck, it doesn?t feel stuck. So can?t go to the store since i?m a long way from home, does anyone have an idea what i can do?

I have S340-15API with Atheros 802.11ac 1x1 (qca9377). This is a very lousy adapter for sensitivity and speed. If you are sitting in 3-4m for direct line of sight to router, the speed is still acceptable, but if you take the laptop to 6-7m, sitting behind the non-capital wall of the house, then the speed drops to the infamous 35-60Mbit/s. At the same time, a laptop with Intel 9560 2x2 surely shows 180Mbit/s+ in the same place. With QCA9377 is impossible to watch a movie from the NAS in same places, the picture constantly freezes for 1080p movies (10-35Mbit/s bitrate).  Moreover, the reviews of stores and forums are full of similar negative remarks on the occasion of QCA9377, that is, clearly this is not a problem specifically for my adapter copy, but an architectural bugs of the adapters of this series Qualcomm as a whole (or not correct design by Lenovo for S340). Because people already many times changed this Atheros 1x1 to Intel 3165 (9462) also with 1x1, they write that after replacing Qualcomm chip for Intel chips speed and stability of the wi-fi improved significantly. I do not want to change it to Intel 1x1, because my router supports 802.11ac 3x3 MU-MIMO for many years. And Intel 9560 2x2 is very good in my other laptop, as I wrote above. I do not understand why Lenovo puts such a miserable adapter (with QCA9377) on laptops. which can not be used even behind the wall from the router.

I have no audio, but when I go to (right-click sound icon in tray) --> Playback Devices --> Playback tab --> right click "Speakers / Headphones Realtek High Definition Audio" --> Configure, then in Speaker Setup dialog:
* If I select Quadraphonic in the "Audio channels" list, I hear sound for the RL (rear-left) and RR (rear-right) speakers, with my stereo speakers plugged into the black jack in back. I cannot get sound when testing the regular L and R speakers in Quadraphonic mode; I've tried all 5 jacks.
* When I select Stereo, then clicking L or R speaker icon to test results in no sound, again no matter which of the 5 jacks i plug my stereo speakers into.
* So the only way I have sound is in Quadraphonic mode, but only for the back speakers. Therefore I cannot hear regular stereo output from applications, such as Youtube in Chrome.
This seems like a bug, or a highly unintuitive aspect of Realtek's or Dell's software at best. Any ideas on how to solve? (Beside buying full surround sound speakers)

hi quick question, when ripping songs from cds should you use stereo or joint stereo. i noticed that no matter which 1 u use, the file size remains the same.

i would like to know whick one gives u the best quality and such....i want my songs to sound the way they do on the cds without losing any information.
 

A:Solved: Stereo or Joint Stereo?

If you want a technical answer look here

http://harmsy.freeuk.com/mostync/

and here

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=31963&hl=stereo+joint

(it starts a bit flamey, but gets more interesting towards the end)

As for which to use, thats really a personal choice, many will say to go for true stereo, because that is more like the original. However, that isn't necessarily true. It is possible to recreate the original sound via joint stereo (all my music is stored in lossless format and uses JS), and JS performs better under compression than true stereo. Therefore, JS should out perform Stereo in any given amount of data, or, if the quality is the same, the JS compression will give more data to other parts of the track. (I hope that makes sense).

You need to bear in mind that there is only so much data to provide for the track, good compression concentrates the data where it is needed. JS allows more data to be used by more important or noticeable elements in the track.

Of course the best way to find out is to test it yourself and run ABX tests.

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=16295&

Foobar2000 is a good tool to do ABX tests. Try to use quality audio equipment

Doing these tests will show you what your ears find is the best system, which is what it really comes down to.

It is important that you use a good encoder and a bit-rate that will give you a quality that you are happy with. If you are encoding in MP3, th... Read more

Right click the taskbar speaker icon and select Recording Devices.

In the dialog that pops up, right click any device and check both Show Disabled + Show Disconnected Devices.

Right click Stereo Mix and enable it, then adjust the settings in the other tabs as required.

If Stereo Mix doesn't show then you'll need to update the audio drivers, restart, and then repeat the above. On my computer, updating the Realtek driver did the trick.

Once you have it working, you may also need to select Stereo Mix as the input device in your audio app.

Hi, first I want to say thanks for reading and hopefully someone can help me!

So I just bought a new gaming desktop. I plan to stream SC2 through justin.tv. In order to do so, I need stereo mix to work. Currently, I am getting no sound. the meter does not show sound playing while it does for my playback device.

motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3

so my default playback is my RX-V567 receiver connected to PC by HDMI. (speakers are 5.1 Klipsch) sound comes through great.

my recording default is Stereo mix and is enabled. the "listen to this device" button is unchecked, as is all other recording devices. the level is 94.
playback through this device is to default playback device ( which is my RX-V567)

I have up to date drivers for everything. I even uninstalled realtek's audio drivers and reinstalled.

Essentially stereo mix is enabled and set to default device but no sound is coming through.

If it helps, when I talk into my mic the meter shows sound registering from the recording device. so it seems like my mic, and playback works, but for some reason Stereo mix does not.

Thanks for your time!

I'm having difficulty getting Stereo Mix to work at all.

I have searched a ton on Google and these boards, but nothing helped me.

Specs:
Windows 7 x64
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H mobo
VIA high definition audio driver which includes Stereo Mix
Intel Display Audio for HDMI (I believe)
HDMI from mobo to TV input
Sound and video are via HDMI and simply come out of my TV

The problem I am having is that the Stereo Mix option is not functioning. What I mean by this is that Stereo Mix does not receive any sound. I can confirm this because the green bars to the right are not moving when sound is coming through my TV speakers (HDMI), the option titled Speakers, or any other playback option.

I have Stereo Mix enabled, not muted, and set as the default.

I would prefer to have sound come via HDMI, and be able to record it in Audacity via Stereo Mix. I know the problem is not with Audacity because Stereo Mix never receives anything in the first place.

I recently clean re-installed Windows 7, and I was able to record Stereo Mix before the re-install. I am wondering if the HDMI output uses a different driver and is not compatible with Stereo Mix from VIA. If this is the case, then I will need help figuring out what has changed with my system so that I can get it back like it used to be.

If you need more info, I will gladly provide.

Thank you,
BigGoose62

A:Stereo Mix Problem. It's Not Working At All

In order for stereo mix to record anything the sound must go though the sound card. However HDMI is bypassing the sound card and sending the pure digital audio directly to the TV. Your sound card does not even touch the audio.

I have an HP laptop, and my sound card is (displayed using PCIutils for Windows):


Code:
Intel Corporation 7 Series / C210 Series
and I am finding difficulties in getting stereo sound from analogical headphones (plugged in with 3.5mm jack). Drivers downloaded from HP or Realtex do not work, drivers supplied by Windows (although they are Realtek drivers as well) sometimes work, I mean: speakers and headphones are shown together at the mixer, and sound from headphones is not stereo. I then go to device manager, audio input and output, and uninstall "Speakers/Headphones". I then reboot with my headphones plugged in, and, after that, the sound is stereo, and (IIRC) the mixer distinguishes between headphones and speakers.

But then things get broken back soon: one time, the windows updated the sound driver, and no stereo sound again. I uninstalled the device, rebooted, and stereo back. Then I unplugged the headphones, and windows said that no speakers were found: I restarted the audio device, speakers were found again, but stereo broken again

I think that debugging this looks tricky but, do you have any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

A:Problem getting stereo sound from headphones

I think I found a workaround. Go to C: -> Program Files -> Realtek -> Audio -> HDA. Move the mouse over the names of the files until you find, under the File Description, "Realtek HD Audio Manager" (on my computer, the file is RtkNGUI64.exe). Run that file. Under the second tab (I have it in another language, would translate to something like "listening experience" in English), uncheck the option (the option would translate to something like "improve audio" in English).

This seems to bring back stereo.

I have a Realtek HD Audio integrated sound card, and the latest driver does not support stereo mix, so I'm sticking with the one I have

Any help?

Hi, I have 2 x HP Probook 470 G2 and a HP ProBook 450 G2 in our household, all of which cannot detect a microphone or stereo line in device such as an IPod etc being plugged in. They all detect headphones perfectly OK but I now need to use the combi jack as an input for these types of devices. In "sounds" - "recording", the external microphone box says "not plugged in", even though DTS gave me an alert to tell me that I had plugged in a device. Can anyone advise please? Thanks
