Ideapad Brain Surgery Not Working!

Q: Ideapad Brain Surgery Not Working!

Good morning, all! I would like to transplant a Samsung EVO 850 SSD into my Ideapad Z580 notebook from another machine of mine. The SSD has a different OS on it (Linux Mint) than what is on the Lenovo's HDD (which is Windows 8.1), and it is also half the size of the HDD (SSD=250GB, HDD=500GB). When I attempted the transplant, the Lenovo would not boot up past the opening screen and gave me an error message that stated something along the lines of (it went by fast, so I couldn't get the exact wording) "PCI (?) media test failure, please check cable." When I put the original HDD back in there, it booted up as though nothing had happened. I'm wondering why this happened, and would putting a new SSD in there to do a clean install of my OS of choice be preferable? Also, when I attempted to use both a USB drive and a disc to install my OS of choice on it, I could not get it to boot from either of those options in BIOS. What am I doing wrong, here?

Preferred Solution: Ideapad Brain Surgery Not Working!

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 would expect it to work. Are you sure the SSD is good?

Hi all,
Haven't made a post in a long time and I'm surprised my account is still active.

Here's the verdict; my laptop came shipped with an OEM Windows Vista installation. I wanted to dual-boot it with Windows XP but needed XP on the C: partition (plus the issue with older version of windows should be installed before a new version is installed) forced me to re-format, install XP SP3, install all the drivers and bring me to what it is now.

My laptop is fully functioning with Windows XP. I have a Linux Ubuntu 8.04 CD, Windows Vista OEM dvd and windows xp sp3 cd at hand. I want to dual boot my system with either windows vista, linux, or both.

Please answer these two questions:

1.) If I create a new partition and install Vista on the new partition, is it possible to upgrade the Vista installation to Windows 7 WITHOUT DOING ANY HARM AT ALL TO THE XP PARTITION OR IT'S BOOT LOADER? So I will then have a dual boot system with Windows XP and 7 (and both OS's fully working)?

2.) If I install Linux in a new partition alongside my XP partition will it be possible to install vista on a third partition AFTER I have installed Linux? So the order in which the operating systems have been installed would be:
- 1. Windows XP installed first
- 2. Linux Ubuntu installed second
- 3. Windows Vista installed third

Any help will be very much appreciated (as long as it's from someone who knows what they are talking about).

From what you say I think you need to post a HijackThis log and then wait for someone qualified (gold shield next to their name) to take you through what needs to be done. Please go no further than the steps below and posting your results for now.You may want to print off this guide just in case.

Using Hijackthis with the self-installer that puts it into Program Files for you:

go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe

Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.

Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.

Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Once you've done this, hang on for further guidance.

Yesterday I spent two hours opening a Radeon 5850, cleaning and lubing it. It was noisy as hell and now it's quiet, so time well spent.

A:My most complex surgery I ever did

Did you happen to document your progress? Like take pictures of the before, during and after? How about recording fan speeds and temps for the before and after? What did you use to clean it?
Just thinking if someone comes here looking for information on how to do what you just did, by having such information attached, it may very well help that person make a decision on doing it themselves versus bringing it to a "Computer Repair" shop.

Presario V3000 laptop, XP, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150, drivers up to date, so Windows says.

Modem went out, sent to HP twice. Finally fixed. They had to change main board. Now it looks like a wide screen TV receiving nonHD signal and stretching it to full screen. What should be a square is wider than tall.

Also seems to be glary. White fonts on desktop under icons were opaque until I changed to bold font. Menu font (black) sometimes seems to fade together.

It's probably settings, but I don't know where.

--- Before you read the meat and potatoes, I made my thread here as I don't have an active out of control infection or major booting problem, but please let me know if I accidentally bleepposted somewhere and will attempt to fix my post lol. You might be able to avoid reading this whole thing because I have given you (what i think) is the most important info in the next three paragraphs. ---

Yes, as the thread title partially suggests, I ran disk cleanup, Eraser, unhide, rkill, Fixexec, Combofix, and finally Malwarebytes in a normal boot, without being asked by a helper. I have other minor computer issues and although neither new issues nor previous issues were caused or exacerbated by Combofix, respectively, I feel you should know about them.
Why? Took the advice of another forum and I think they are erroneous. The professionalism and shear number of threads and guides I have seen here suggests this. 
Everything below this might be info contained in some log Il be asked to produce, idk, but regardless I provided background info.

AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn All-Southeastern Conference linebacker K.J. Britt will undergo thumb surgery.
Team spokesperson Kirk Sampson said Thursday that Britt is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday, a day before the 13th-ranked Tigers host Arkansas. It wasn't immediately clear how long Britt will be out.
Britt is leading the team with 23 tackles through two games, including one tackle for loss. He was a first-team Associated Press All-SEC pick last season and is a team captain.
Britt had 69 tackles last season, including 10 for a loss and 2.5 sacks. Freshman Wesley Steiner is listed as his backup.
Fellow linebacker Chandler Wooten had already opted out for the season.

Hi There.
I am running Windows XP on my computer with Office 2000. Everything was running fine until my computer was infected with the Sven virus. I removed the virus but was told that it could have made changes to my computer, making it vulnerable to another virus. For that reason I decided to re-install all software.
Since then I cannot send or receive faxes using Outlook 200 with the Symantec Fax Starter Edition. I can set up the fax ok, but when I send it just sits there until it times out. It displays the message "connecting to server" but never seems to connect. Then I get the error message "A Timeout occured while communicating with the server. (Account: 'Symantec Fax Starter Edition',SMTP Server: '', Error Number: 0x800ccc19)"
I've tried everything that I can think of, including re-installing it several times. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this

I have a computer running Windows XP Professional SP2 using Internet Explorer 6.0.2 SP2. When I open Internet Explorer it opens to a windows named e-Brain.jp/ and says e-Brain 1st Hosting on the top of the page. Most of the print on the page is not in English. I was able to download and installed Firefox 2.0 which work fine. I tried to uninstall IE6 but it does not show up on the Add/Remove software list. I tried to install IE7 but got error message during installation. I have scanned for spyware using AVG Antispyware finding nothing, have scanned for viruses finding nothing there either. If I type in a web page (ie msn.com) it takes me right back to the e-Brian page. I searched the internet for this issue but have not found an answer. Anyone run into this before?

Hello, I'm not sure if I have anything left on my computer as it seems to be working fine. But I was hoping someone could check it out for me.

This morning I had antispy brain on my computer which told me that all my .exe files had viruses and tried to make me go to a site to purchase antispyvir software to remove it. It also made it so I couldn't access the web and I kept getting proxy errors saying that the sites I was going to did not allow proxies.

What I did instead was stop the process from my computer. Then I changed to using no proxys. This allowed me to run my antivirus AVG and malwarebytes, both did not find anything. This also allowed me to get online again.

I rebooted a few times and the antispybrain never came back. I was able to turn on proxys again and could get online. I did notice that some of the forums I normally go to did not log in automatically anymore. I had to type in my username and password. I also had to type in the full username as my saved form fields weren't pulling down either. I'm not sure if this happened because of the proxy setting change or not, but it was just odd.

Everything is working fine, but I never deleted any files so I believe it's still lurking on my computer somewhere.

My laptop is yet again teaching me that technology is not prefect. I have had a Dell Latitude D400 for about three years now and suddenly its beginning to crash. I have done the small things such as remove my pictures and most music from my laptop. Nevertheless there is still less then 5% of space left. I went to the add/remove file most programs there Windows XP needs in order to function. Also, I decreased viritual memory to the max. recommended of 381. I am not sure if there are any scanners I can download to find unused, half deleted parts of downloads from the past. At this point, I am not sure what to do. Can you please help me determine if there is more usable space on my laptop that I am not aware of? This is the error that my system sent to Microsoft (don't know what it means).

Error type : Windows stop error (A message appears on a blue screen with error code information)
Solution available? : No (see Next steps)
What does this error mean? : Windows has encountered an error from which it cannot recover and needs to restart
Cause : Unknown device driver
Computer symptoms : A message appears on a blue screen with error code information (for example: e.g. 0x0000001E, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED)
Additional steps for you to take : Important: Please continue to send error reports so analysts at Microsoft can study and try to correct the problem as quickly as possible

Goodmorning peoples

I have to buy a new computer - don't need monitor, keyboard, mouse

I have been searching Dell, HP & Sony. There is a lot of pretty stuff up there, but I don't have a clue what it all means and don't know where to begin to compare.

I just don't know here to start and I hope you can guide me.

Right now I have a sad sony with winme and it crashes all of the time. Mostly because I run out of memory, resources. I checked with the manufacturer and I can't upgrade - max memory is 256 for this thing. Now matter what, now it is beyond maxed out. I get frozen white screens daily and my dll's are messing up a lot. (I do use SpyBot and AdAware and I seem to be okay there ... dunno about the dll thing)

I (try to/want to) use my machine with many applications open
i.e. MSOffice/Outlook, JASCPaintShop, MSImageComposer, MSFrontPage, AdobePhotoshop/Illustrator, as well as ZoneAlarm, AVG, browser, my ISP hookup, etc.

I don't play games. I just like to work with a lot of pictures, graphics editing and webs.

Can you guys help me to get started?
(is this the right place to post?)

I am so exasperated I am not even sure if I have asked in here before. I know I have done a lot of searching this past few months and am still sitting here with this sad, sad machine, lost by techno terms I do not understand

Here’s a real stumper for someone who wants a challenge. I guess first I will describe my system. I have the following:

>Toshiba satellite 2800 laptop
>256 ram
>3com pcmcia NIC card
>Lynksys 1 port router going to an eight-port hub
My problem is that I cannot get my laptop to get and IP address through the router it simply cannot see my local network or the Internet. All the other computers in my office work through this router. I have tried 3 different cables, I have tried every different port on the hub, I have tried recycling/resetting the modem and router, I have rebooted countless times. The router is able to give out 50 IP/s. All of my computers are on DHCP and they all work fine. All MAC addresses are registered. So I tried plugging in directly to the modem. Alakzam!! It worked. So I guess it just doesn’t like my router. Is there some setting I forgot? Oh I have also forced a static IP, that didn’t work neither. I have tried to release and renew and is says, “All adapters bound to DHCP do not have DHCP addresses. The addresses were automatically configured and cannot be released.” I have tried to renew and that doesn’t work neither.

A:brain teaser

All MAC addresses are registered. Click to expand...

Exactly what do you mean by this? If you're restricting access based on MAC address, I'd suggest you turn that off and see if it helps. The cable modem won't restrict the connection based on the MAC address of the machine, that could be the difference.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, re-booted several times. When I hover on the speaker icon on the lower right it says "No speakers or headphones are plugged in". When I click on the Dolby Audio Icon it says " Your installation is missing components..." When I go to device manager there is the yellow triangle warning sign on the Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus. When I click on that it shows the manufacturer as Conexant. The Device Status box says "Reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18)." I've uninstalled and reinstalled. I also get a notification that frequently pops up saying "Conexant UIU service in startup." When I try to reinstall the drivers I often get "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device" and then it gives me the Error Code 18. What's going on?

Hi I can't get the built in mic to work on my new laptop.  It is showing as being connected in the recording settings and enabled and set to default.  All showing up fine in device manager. When I try to run the speech setup no sound is picked up.  I have checked and the mic is not on mute (F4) and I have turned its volumn to max.   I have tried reinstalling the mic and audio controllers from Device manager and installed the latest drivers from the lenovo site, still no joy.  Anyone got any other ideas? Thanks

A:Touchpad not working on ideapad 300. How do I fix ...

Hi there, Tom ?
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
Just found the same problem with my Ideapad 500. Touch pad completely non responsive.
Under start menu, settings, devices, mouse & touchpad, additional mouse options, elan tab. The elan touchpad settings were completely grayed out and unavailable.
So from there I went to the window search in the task bar and typed in "computer management? and opened the computer management desktop app. Under device manager selected mice and other pointing devices and then elan input device. In the elan properties window that opened I selected uninstall to uninstall the driver and in the next box that opened warning that the driver was about to be uninstalled l checked the delete driver and then OK.
Then restarted windows. In the process of restarting windows detected the elan touchpad as a new device and installed the driver in time for the login screen. So my elan touch pad is now working again.
I am assuming that the driver had been corrupted in the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10
Touchpad driver for windows 10
Touchpad driver for windows 8.1
Update us how it goes.

It has been 2 weeks since I own this laptop, the laptop is pretty decent for my daily activity with the laptop.But my current problem is, previously FN + F8 (which is a key to turning on/off the camera) however is not working anymore. Back then it was working I just need to press FN + F8 to disable or enable my camera. The same problem as the FN + F7 (airplane mode). I know I can just do it manually on Windows but it's not practical the way we have these buttons.Thank you in advance.
