Q: X1 6th basic SSD

Hello community, Sorry my newbiness (?) but is there a list somewhere with verified SSD support? I know type is M.2 2280 but does an ordinary SATA fit or it must be NVMe? Laptop in question:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... Need to move original Samsung 1Tb NVME out of there and replace it with some basic 250Gb SATA or so. Edit: Tried some Adata and Liteon but no go, the system doesn't recognize them. Cheers

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 8 is the default and only OS on this laptop. Please do not suggest restore or backups - they do not exist.

I am trying to reinstall a fresh Windows 7 back into this laptop for dual boot purposes. I have a Win7 ISO all ready to go on a flash drive. The problem is... I cannot get the 20GB "Windows Seven (S " drive to convert from dynamic to basic. THere is no data to backup, Im tryiong to do a fresh install. Ive been trying for two weeks.

Why am I trying to do this? Because I just want to get a copy of Win7 back on here to fall back upon when Redmond pulls the auth key for Win8 Dev

This is the status of my drives. Theres one.. its 465GB System has 200MB and Win8 is on C with 465GB. THIS is a Dynamic Drive. I know C cannot be made basic. I know Windows wontr install on anything but Basic.

How do I either 1. Fix this so I can install Windows 7 onto a new partition of 20-25GB OR 2. create a new drive for this?

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get my feet wet in creating a .vbs file from notepad to do a basic function. I wanted to be able to run .reg files remotely but also interactively. This led me down the path of simply finding an example of a .vbs that would open anything remotely at all. Notepad is what came up with the most results and the Win32_ScheduledJob object appeared to be what was needed.

I researched many different places but this is a decent walkthrough. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394601(v=vs.85).aspx

I grabbed the code below out of the website and changed the date parameters to run in a couple minutes from my current time. I could see the task in scheduled tasks but when the time had come and gone nothing would happen and this is just trying to get it to run locally so far.

Hello,

I guess my question can be asked in two ways, the short way and the long way.

Here's the short one:

Can you do everything that you can do with VBA with VB?
The long one is:

I need to be able to write programs that conceivably invovle web forms/web services (VB right?), Microsoft SQL Server 2002 (VB again right?) but also Microsft Office applications like Excel and Access (VBA??). Does that mean I need to learn both Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications? In my initial research into Visual Basic I've learned that Visual Basic for Applications is a subset of Visual Basic, so shouldn't that mean that Visual Basic, being the parent and more powerful than Visual Basic for Applications, is capable of performing all of the functions that Visual Basic for Applications does?

Thanks for your help,

A:Solved: Visual Basic vs. Visual Basic for Applications

I do not know VB at all, only some VBA. The main difference is that VBA has words specifically for the applications, a classic exanple would be the
Range("a65536").End(xlUp)
both range and .End(xlUp) are for use in Excel.

Your help would be greatly appreciated and in advance thank you!

A:some basic help please

If it will help you, C drive is always your operating system drive, you do not want to mess with it. It is where windows 7 is located and where you normally install programs. D drive is a data drive - it is where many people place their data. That would be used for things like your my documents, my photos, my music etc. You would do that for several reasons. If your system becomes corrupted or inoperable you would not lose some of your most valuable things. Some things like family photos, many of your documents and such are difficult to replace. It also saves space on your C drive. If your system becomes inoperable, it will most likely be the operating system. That and your programs can be replaced. Without knowing, I cannot tell you about the Q drive.

Who installed your operating system? If Asus installed it, it could be a recovery partition or something, but usually they are not given a drive letter like Q. If Asus installed it, there should be an explanation in your owners manual.

I would suggest that when you first come on this site look in the very top on the right side. There is an extensive collection of tutorials. They are written by members of this forum and are very good. You can learn many things that you can do with windows 7.

If that does not help, you come back but you should provide us with an image of disk management. You can get there by typing disk manahement into the search box when you click on the windows button on the bottom left of your screen. then... Read more

I recently got a new computer which came with a DVD Burner. I have a few questions...

**It is important to note that I am NOT trying to rip or make copies of actual physical discs that I own (which seems to be what 99.9% of all of the advice online is about). I don't own any DVD's really, I am working with files I have on my hard drive, downloaded files***

First of all, is there a certain file type (ie: .avi, .mpeg, etc...) that I should be looking for that works best for burning DVDs? I know that when i used to burn audio discs there were a lot of different file types (ie: wav, mp3, etc..) but it was the mp3's that you needed to burn music discs for regular audio players. What filetype do i need to burn regular video discs to be played in regular (non computer related) DVD players?
Secondly, can anyone recommend any shareware that I can use to actually create/burn the DVD's after I have them physically downloaded on my machine? My DVD burner drive came standard on my HP machine, and so I woulda thought they would have included a burning software, but it appears they didn't. I have one that burns audio discs, but not video. Can anyone recommend a free (and very simple) program that can take downloaded files and burn them onto a blank DVD disc to be played on a standard DVD player?

My pc was continually shutting down so I did a reinstall of win 7 home basic 64bit. Prior to this I bought a seagate ext hard drive and borrowed a wd external hard drive. I backed up my c drive to both using the seagate acronis and the wd smartware software.

What am I not understanding please?

A:Basic question

When you say you can't access any of your original files what is the error message that you are getting?
Is it possible you have hidden files? Enable viewing of hidden files?
When it says a volume of 200+ GB this could mean the total capacity of the partition and not your files. If you right click on the partition and click properties it will show you the used space versus the free and total space.

There's something I'm not getting and I wonder if someone can clarify. Might be only a question of terminology.

Anything that's on a CD/DVD was "burned" to the CD/DVD, correct? "Burned" refers to the thermal properties of the laser which copies a file by "burning" its bits onto CD/DVD surface. This contrasts with the magnetic process used to write to a hard drive.

I've seen procedures for burning ISO files to CD/DVD but I'm don't understand the need for an ISO-specific burning procedure. That is, isn't burning an ISO file to CD/DVD the same as burning any other files? I understand an ISO file is an exact image of a CD/DVD; but does that mean the procedure of burning ISO to a CD/DVD is different? That's the inference I draw from the existence of these ISO-specific burning procedures.

Help me understand this--If I'm missing some upstream conceptual thing, tell me. Why don't such procedures say: "You burn an ISO file to a CD/DVD the same way you burn any file."?
 

A:Solved: Help me with something basic?...

You don't burn an ISO file the same way you burn other files. The ISO file is a compressed set of files. It has to be extracted and burned in a particular way. If you just dragged and dropped the ISO file onto a CD and burned the file, it would be completely useless.

any ideas
 

A:Basic C++ error

Nevermind. I'm an idiot. This error results from defining one function inside the body of another function. It usually means that you omitted one or more } symbols in the function just before the function named in the error message

Ok....I've used Twitter before but not for awhile, and it's confusing the heck out of me right now. Please let me know if/what I'm doing wrong:

I had an old account, but I deactivated it tonight. I established a new account on gmail, which was [email protected] That's what I assume is the Twitter address.

My username is such and [email protected] such and such. I've tested the account by tweeting both from the computer and also from my Android. The tweets show up instantly on both devices. However, I asked a friend to try to tweet, and to try to receive my practice tweets, and she says it doesn't work. Nothing shows up under the search.

I search on Twitter for myself, and nothing comes up; it just says "nothing found."

can someone please just tell me how to get ground zero here? That is, how to get others to sign up for these tweets? And why my name won't turn up under search? And....IS the account number the [email protected]??

Thanks in advance....Twitter really confused me.
 

A:Need basic Twitter help!

And fwiw: the account is for a 3-day school field trip. If it would help the troublshooting to list the actual name of the account I can do that.

Introduction

The Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) is an essential set of routines in a PC, which is stored on a chip on the motherboard. It acts as an intermediary between a computer's hardware and its operating system. Without the BIOS, the PC's operating system would have no way to communicate with, or take control of, the hardware.

In other words, the BIOS is a crucial component of any computer. If its options are set incorrectly, the BIOS could slow your computer down by as much as 40%. Unfortunately, as new processors and motherboard chipsets are released, BIOS options continue to get even more confusing. As a result, many seasoned technicians are still baffled by the jargon-laced and confusing options available in a modern computer's BIOS setup program.

But that's okay, because THG is here to help! Each motherboard and/or computer manufacturer utilizes a different BIOS, so we'll cover the steps involved in optimizing the BIOS on an example board, the Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe. I've chosen this particular motherboard because so many of ASUS's boards are modeled after it. Also, the A7N8X-E is one of ASUS's most popular models; it's been available for nearly two years, and is still sold today for AMD-based systems. Obviously, whatever motherboard you use will have differences from this model, but you can still get a feel from the examples for the sorts of adjustments that you can make.

If I have an oem windows xp program on disk, and a copy of a windows install disk, can I then load windows to the disk?

It's complicated, and difficult to figure out. There's too many variables, and many XP versions have no documentation that I can find. This subject is currently my primary interest: How to reinstall XP on a computer that was either shipped without a reinstall disk, or the disk has become damaged or lost, without having to pay an exorbitant price for the disk.

First, you need to know what was installed. XP Pro or Home, what service pack level and what OEM (Dell, HP, etc...) or custom-built (retail, OEM, upgrade) etc....

You also need to know your Product ID, and have it written somewhere safe, because that is the only thing you have that is of value. When you lose that, you've lost your legal copy of XP and you'll have to purchase another.

That product ID will only work with certain XP disks. Which disk(s) is the primary issue. There is some interchageability, but there's not comprehensive documentation that I can find; some kind of "roadmap" that you can look at and say "I have this kind of XP, and so I need that kind of XP disk."

Finding a disk that will work with your PID is the goal.

I'm looking for (and trying to write) a simple macro/clicker that will basically automate and loop two taps on the keyboard, and possibly make a loud sound or something when the information/visuals on the screen changes. Basically it will automate pressing of F5 and then enter to resend info and refresh the page, and detect a change if the refreshed page changes (the changed page has more text and a checkbox).
Would this be possible to do? Are there macros that would allow me to do this simply from customizing the key clicks, or do I have to write up one from scratch?
Thanks.

Thanks for any reponse

 

A:win vista basic?

#1 They should be activated already right out of the box. An easy way to check this would be to right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

#2 Absolutely save SP1 to a disk for future installations if possible. And yes I would highly recommend installing it on those Vista machines that don't already have it.
