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.)

I have installed Windows XP and so far it is running great without any problems. (knock on wood). This questions is more an annoyance. When I turn on the computer and the welcome screen appears it shows I have 11 unread email messages. But I know there are no unread email messages in outlook express. How do I get rid of this notification since it is an error?
 

A:Mail Notification Display on welcome screen

Hiya

Try this:

Tools | Options | Preferences tab | E-mail Options. Under Display a notification message when new mail arrives, uncheck the box.

It could be a carryover.

If that dosen't help, try going to MSCONFIG via Run. I know on Win2000 you don't have it. Unsure about XP.
If you can, go to the Startup tab, and see if you can find the entry for it. If you can, uncheck it.

Regards

I would like to first say thank you for any assistance that can be provided.I have a refurbished T420 Business Class that I have recently purchased.  It has the Display Port and I use an adapter to go from it to HDMI.  I use a projector during one class I instruct and a television during the other.Connecting the HDMI cable to the adapter there seems to be some issues.  The screen resolution changes on the notebook but nothing automatically displays through the projector or the television.  Using the function+F8 does nothing; however, the Windows Key+P will bring up the options but they do not seem to be configured properly.  No matter which one I pick I cannot get a dual display on the monitor and the output device.  Every notebook I?ve had in recent years automatically picked up on the display and went to the dual mode.  I ordered this one with the NVIDA NVS4200M Graphics Card and I?m beginning to think I screwed up.  I have updated the driver and still no better results.System- Windows 10 Pro 64-bitI5-2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz8GB RamIntel(R) HD Graphics 3000Driver Date 5/27/2015Driver Version 9.17.10.4229NVIDA NVS4200MDriver Date 10/04/16Driver Version 369.49

I just purchased an adapter plug that allows me to connect my Lenovo/IBM thinkpad (T420) to my HDTV by plugging the HDMI cord into my TV and the other end to this adapter plug which converts the HDMI cable into a male plug which fits into my display port (there is no HDMI port on this model computer). It worked, but now I can't remove the adapter plug...it's stuck in the laptop display port. I do not know if the problem is caused by the male adapter plug or the female jack in the computer, but they're locked together now.

I have previously read review comments (on these HDMI/display port adapter plugs) mentioning this jamming happening on more than a couple occasions, but I don't recall any resolutions being mentioned except to break off (and destroy) the plug and possibly damage the display port as well. I called Lenovo tech support but they said I'd have to mail the computer to them to get it fixed. I'd prefer avoiding that if possible even though my warranty is still in effect and it would be of no cost to me.....just time lost without a computer.

I'd greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may be aware of how to resolve this problem (and also how to avoid it happening again) without doing damage to either the plug or especially the computer display port.

Thanks for your consideration in any case....

Over the past year or so, I've noticed that every time I change the angle of my LCD, I'll hear the USB sound (like you've added or removed something) and then I will get a notice "USB Device Not recognized". In device manager there is an "Unknown device" listed.The only things I can think of are my webcam and microphone. I have noticed that my microphone wont work at all. My webcam works only when installing the right combination of drivers. I wouldn't think the microphone is a USB device though.

A:T420 USB issue when moving screen

Microphone, webcam and Thinklight are USB devices that all share a cable.  My guess is a cracked wire in the cable that goes through the right hinge.  Be sure to unplug the AC and remove the battery before working on the panel.  On that model, it is easy to blow a fuse.

Hello, following the replacement of a damaged screen on a T420, the picture is extermely dim and can only be seen with a torch or in very low light. I've tried other LCD cables and screens. External monitor works fine. Is this therefore likely to be a motherboard issue or could it be inverter etc? What should my next steps be? Thanks.

A:T420 very dim screen - motherboard? (checked LCD a...

There is no inverter since there is an LED backlight.  You almost certainly have a blown backlight fuse on the motherboard.  It is a fairly common problem after a broken panel.  With the older CCFL screens, a broken panel meant a broken bulb and an open circuit.  Even if it created a short, it would blow a fuse on the inverter.  (An inverter converts the DC used on the motherboard to the AC needed by the bulb.)  Now, there is no inverter and a broken panel can cause a short and a blown motherboard fuse.

Hi I am new to this community, so I would like to applogise if I mist a simillar subject (I did check some but non resolved my problem). I have a thinkpad t420, I bought a used one. It worked great, and I bought it from a friend, that I trust. I installed a ssd drive, was usnig Linux, and everything worked for one month. But then I bought a HDD caddy, and replaced the CD rom. After that my thinkpad worked for a day (although it didnt recognize the second HDD). The next day I tried searching BIOS for some settings, and after restarting my laptop it was stuck on Lenovo splash screen, rebooting in a loop. I tried:- removing and replacing the caddy with the CD rom,- replacing my SSD drive,- replacing RAM (both slots),- reseting BIOS,- running a diagnostic CD (but it will not boot, neither can I boot from an USB) My google search showed that it could bi a problem with one of the USB pins inside of one of the ports (short circuit or something like that), but I could not finde any damage. So I am thinkig that the motherboard could be damaged, but I can access BIOS, but that is the only thing I can do with it. I would be wery thenkful for any advice or help, before I go to an official Lenovo service for help. Thnak you! Z.

Hi Zjaz123456,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with not booting to OS on your ThinkPad T420.
Is both HDD &SSD detecting in BIOS?
 
Check with removing CMOS battery, make sure you have disconnected the system from AC adapter and battery is removed.
 
Remove both the drive & battery from the system, disconnect the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 15 to 20 sec perform this step for 2 to 3 times and then connect only the drive which is having OS installed in it. Use only power adapter to switch ON the system.
 
Hope this helps. Do post us back for further assistance!
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

hey Quinn,welcome to the forums. could you check the graphic card version on your unit and compare it to the version available on http://support.lenovo.com .is it the same or is the one on the support site ? If both of it is the same, uninstall the graphic driver from your unit and then download the driver from our support site.do not install it yet, set your unit to diagnostic mode via msconfig first and then only install.

N00b here. Installed Linux Mint on my lenovo thinkpad T420 a few weeks ago but could not boot into Linux. Eventually tried using Rescataux Beta on a usb. First I used the easy UEFI repair, which didn't work, so next I tried boot-repair. This worked, I could get into the OS. However, now I can't get into the bios, it just displays a black screen when I press F1 during loading. I tried doing a bios update, which appeared to go fine, but this didn't resolve the problem. I have no idea about what boot-repair does so I don't know where to look for a fix. Before I did boot-repair, I could get into BIOS but not Linux, afterwards, I could get into Linux but not into BIOS. Based on other posts, I've taken out the battery, and held the power button down for 30 seconds, and I've also sent @someotherguy a PM as I've seen suggested in other posts, but had no response.   # dmidecode 3.0

Hey everyone I purchased a T420 a few months back and two times (just before cleaning the screen with a dry fiber cloth) I've noticed what looks marks made by the keyboard (vertical lines, spaced approximately as the keys) and what looks like marks made by the touchpad (small dots, the touchpad is dotted) on the screen. The marks disappear when cleaning the screen with the fiber cloth which is good so far, but I fear it is the dreaded phenomenon of the keyboard scratching into the screen because the screen touches the keys when the lid is closed. Back in the days and with cheap laptops you see permanent damage to the screen from this. Have any of you guys experienced this with your T410, T420 ect? Should I place a fiber cloth between the keyboard and screen when I close the laptop? It seems silly that Lenovo got this one thing wrong with this laptop.. As soon as I see the marks again I will make sure to photograph them and show the pictues here. Best regardsWuhtzu

A:T420 - Keyboard and touchpad leaves marks on screen?

I have not had any such issues with my T420 (or T400). I would think if it is leaving marks on the screen that there is an issue with the way the machine was put together.

Hy!I've used my Thinkpad T420 battery charge mode with custom settings: Start charging when below 95% and Stop charging at 99%. Because the battery effectively has never charged full, it cause sudden capacity decreases (for example from 30% discharging to 7%). I got bored to this and changed to automatically optimize battery lifespan. I noticed that every full charge the "Full charge capacity" value decreases. I have charged it 5 times after this settings, and the remaining capacity looks like this: 57.10Wh, 57.05Wh, 57.00Wh, 56.95Wh, 56.85Wh. Is it normal? Is it possible that this setting will kill my battery?

I saw people are trying to get icons to the lower right side of the taskbar, so I played around and found this way. Starting with Windows Live Messenger 9.

1. Pin the program to the taskbar.

2. Close the program so it's not running.

3. Hold down shift key and right-click the program's icon.

4. Select Compatibility Troubleshooter.

5. Move along the selections , select "The program worked in earlier versions of Windows..." and when asked for OS of compatibility mode choose Windows XP or "I don't know" (should default to Windows XP).

6. Finish the wizard and you're done. I'm including screenshots for messenger.

7. You can now unpin the program from the taskbar. It will appear on the notification area when minimized.

The difference with this way is that instead of manually setting compatibility mode to the executable, Windows sets it to all the application's resources and dependency files.

Try it and let me know of your results.

A:Solution to display minimized apps in notification area

OK- this is what I am trying to do. But, the icons that I am trying to hide appear in the Taskbar only when I start the program. So there is no way for me to close the program AND have its icon in the Taskbar so I can do Step 3. When I close the program, the icon is removed from teh taskbar.

I have Dell Inspiron 5547 laptop (Touch Screen, 15 inches, 16 GB RAM and i7 4th Gen processor, Out of Warranty). Some days back, suddenly the display went dim and anything is hardly visible. After some initial investigation, the display chip (may be VGA or LED display chip) on the motherboard appears to be burnt out (may be due to voltage surge). Even the numbers printed on the chip is not readable because of which it is difficult for the local repairing shops to repair this problem.
I think Dell India Service Center doesn't deal with chip level repair and hence replacing motherboard is the only way they can fix this. This will be very costly (considering that the laptop is not under warranty so will have to pay for warranty extension, motherboard replacement and repair service) and time consuming.
Hence, to avoid all this I have come here to seek some assistance.
If there are anyone using the same laptop (Inspiron 5000 series 5547 Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM) then could you please take a clear picture of your laptop's motherboard or if you recognize the display chip then only that should be sufficient. In this case, I can read the chip related number from the image and try to repair it.
What are the charges for buying a warranty for the laptop, motherboard of my laptop and repairing charge? 

Request your response and help.

Regards,
Rohit Kumar

A:Display Issue - Dim Display for Dell Inspiron 5000 (Model 5547) - Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM

You'll have to call Dell about the possibility of a warranty extension;  in the US, it's sometimes possible but will likely run over $300 -- or about what a board replacement would cost.
If you're getting video, the GPU is OK -- and it's more likely the power circuit to the backlight that's bad.  It'll likely cost as much to repair as to replace the board -- though you'll still be putting $300-400 into an out of warranty system, so replacing the system may be a better idea (if you do this, consider buying a 3-year warranty with the next system).

A few days ago when i tried to play an audio on my computer it was making nonsense sound, like crackling or something like that (this was just when i was running any file, including movie or music and when it was supposed to have some normal voice inside the speaker).

If you zoom in and look closely, you will see there is a burn in of my desktop. You can see the desktop apps icons like the current screen is very transparent.

I noticed it first here on my game main menu.


So basically I have shadows of the previous screens / apps used as I move on to a new app/ screen. I am unable to figure out how / why it happens. Also, my FPS is dropping like crazy. I mean it's like every 10-15 sec the mouse and screen will freeze for a sec and go back to normal.

The battery on T420 was not charged, and I received a DOS message that the battery was extremely low before the system shutdown. I attached the power cord to the system and attempted to start the computer, but received the same message. So, I removed the battery and attempted to start the computer with just the power cord attached. Unfortunately, the computer did not start. I know some systems require a battery inserted even if the power cord is attached. Is this the case with T420? If not, is this a power cord issue, meaning that I have to purchase a new power cord? Is this a power cord or battery issue, or worse, a power supply controller problem? I am not a hardware guy.

Also after manual reinstallation you should install various drivers for components in your laptop from Lenovo website to get the best of your laptop. If you don't want to do that, the better soution than reinstallation is to restore factory image using OneKey Recovery. This will automatically reinstall Windows with all drivers built in as well as various Lenovo applications like Lenovo Utility.

i have problems with my screen settings. my 14 month old son kept pressing the mouse while the computer was on when i left the room for just 2 minutes! when i returned i found the screen was in pink and other colours and not clear and tilted downwards a bit from the top left hand corner.

I'm not sure what I did or how to go about changing this but a few weeks ago my laptop screen appeared with a black bar about half of an inch on top and bottom. It looks almost like I'm watching windows on a wide screen display. I tried fooling around in the display settings but to no avail. Anyone with some insight or help would be much appreciated.

I don't know much about computers so I will describe this the best I know how.

This morning I turned on my laptop. The blue startup/login screen was blue with white pixel waves. It looked like static and was fuzzy. I logged in and my desktop picture had waves of green and pink pixels. Everything seems to work fine and you can read it, but things are fuzzy and weird colored. For instance, the red block of color at the top of this page looks like it is moving with pink, white and green pixels. I restarted the computer several times and it didn't change. After supper, I turned it back on. After a few minutes, the screen was clear again. It flickered the weird screen again and then stayed clear. We shut it down, but the next time it was started up, the weird screen was back.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can give. And I am sorry if this post is in the wrong topic. It seemed like the closest thing to my computer illiterate understanding.

Thank you,
Leigh Ann

Hi,

I have recently this weird problem:

I've working with Sibelius (music notation program) over 1.5 years without any problems. And just out of the blue I get this screen when I start the program as shown below.

The hoizontal bar should be at the top of the screen and the menu that is shown should be filled with text and options you can choose.

I have the same problem with explorer (also shown below). This happens not with every folder.

I have tried to reinstall Windows and Sibelius (with formatting the computer). Sibelius works untill I restart the computer. Then I've got the same problem.

Can someone help me (it's driving me crazy!!!)

I work with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Kind regards,


Jampie

This happens because of the Adobe Capture 3D component of Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro/Extended. You need to use Autoruns (from Microsoft's web site) to disable the Adobe Capture 3D component from your system's start-up options via the AppInit tab.

I shut down my computer, and when i turned it back on, the screen is black, and the signin box is yellow. After I signed in, the screen continued to be black and all of the writing was in yellow or white. I've tried uninstalling the graphics driver and performing a clean boot, but the problem persists.

I am having difficulties trying to get my desk top display stretched fully across the screen. Today after the screen came up I accidatally clicked on something I don't remember and the screen leaves a gap about 3/4 inch on the left side. I tried to pull (stretch) it over and also tried right click into properties -> Desk Top Options, but no help. I know this is a simple operating error and trivial to experts on this board, but I wonder if anyone can give a hint how to get the desk top screen fully stretched without a gap. It's just a nuisance to look at. Thanks a lot. BTW I have Window XP and also AOL as internet porter.

What type of computer do you have? And how big is the monitor? Try this: Right-click Desktop -> Properties -> Settings Tab. Choose a variety of different resolutions using the slider at the bottom of the window and see which one fits best. If none of them work, go back to the original settings. Click the Advanced button at the bottom of the window. Under the Monitor tab, select a few different refresh rates (ie; 85Hz, 75Hz and see which one fits your screen the best. If this doesn't work, reply and tell me what kind of monitor you have (ie; CRT, LCD, Laptop display) and the brand. Also say what kind of video card you have. (You can find this by right-clicking My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware tab -> Device manager and going to the group Display Adapters and expanding [pressing the + next to it]. Post everything listed there)

A:Lenovo G50-70 Screen Display Problem

Hi Realcoder,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Did you have a chance to test the laptop with an external monitor attached to the VGA port? Can you get video on the external monitor?
 
First of all, I would check memory modules. It?s possible that one of the modules failed. 1. Try reconnecting memory modules. Remove them from the motherboard and install back in. 2. Test your laptop with each module installed separately. If one of them is faulty, the laptop will start when the bad module is removed.
Also, check the connectors inside to see if any have come loose.
 
This Maintenance Manual should guide on how to get into the memory modules.
 
Regards,
Shashi
