Q: Z510 - A whole lot of frustration after 4 days of ...

My device: lenovo z510

Issue: I was using win 10 happily after the free upgrade. Suddenly 4-5 days back my cursor started blinking. This is problem no.1. Later I found out that whenever I try to cut/copy-paste anything it also didn't work. Searched a lot online but nothing worked. So I tried to reset windows(keeping win 10). But that to didn't work. Again reset windows, this time back to original one(8.1). Now two extra problems emerged. First is trackpad keeps freezing every 15-20 seconds. Secondly two-finger right click stopped working. Everything else is working like 2-finger scroll, zoom, rotate but not 2-finger right click. Tried a whole lot of things which includes uninstalling, updating drivers to list some. BUT NOTHING WORKED. Seems h/w problem. But no. I tried usb mouse too but the status was same i.e., cursor freezing, blinking, cu/copy/paste not working

I then switched to Microsoft support. Technical person took control of my PC for whole day. Tried random of things like updating graphics driver, running disk cleanup, deleting temporary files, etc. Finally in the end she suggested to reinstall clean windows dowloaded from MS site. I positively did that too. BUT THAT TOO DIDN'T WORKED.

NEED HELP BADLY. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I gather you did not contact Lenovo support for call back. The should be able to resolve it if its not a hardware problem.If new then return and/or replace it are the options.Nothing can be done as the Tech's are the primary source for these problems.

hey guys, i came across this a little while ago: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/875-activation-trial-period-extend-up-120-days.html it says if i run that command Windows7 evaluation period will be extended by 30 days each time it's done. however, when i do it it only extends for 3 days. is there any way to make it last longer or has it changed?

thanks
 

A:Extending Evaluation Period for 120 days.. only extends for 3 days?

If you have a valid copy of windows 7 with a legit COA sticker and can activate it without problems i dont see any need to even have an evaluation period.If your copy of windows 7 isnt valid and the COA sticker isnt anygood id suggest you buy a proper copy of windows 7 with a legit COA sticker and go from there.Because eventually it wont work anymore and you will be locked out of the computer.

As I understand it, with the new anniversary update after 10 days one will get disk space back relating to Windows.old being deleted automatically (if PC is left idle for a while).

i also believe that if a PC upgrades to Windows 10 then the new anniversary update wouldn't be offered until 30 days have elapsed. However with the aforementioned change to 10 days for rolling back the anniversary update I wonder if that now also rings true for previous 10586/TH2 build? We got a new mini PC approx 10 days ago, Windows 10 was pre installed but it was a really old build, pre 10586/TH2. I checked for updates and it immediately set about updating to last novembers 10586. However I am now confused as to whether I need to wait 10 days or 30 days for Windows update to offer it the new Anniversary update. I am totally happy to wait for Windows update to do its thing rather than use MCT etc, just curious about the timescales involved given MS has changed from 30 to 10 on the latest version

I installed win7 home premium x64 the first time and it worked fine until i restarted the pc. It refused to boot.

Here's my problem. I have a Dell Dimension desktop with Windows XP. It started being fussy yesterday morning. I tried a system restore to April of this year and the problem was there. I then did a recovery of the system to factory settings and the problem still occurs. I've run two different virus scans and am not finding anything.

What happens is when I open Internet Explorer and try to open any other link other than what's set to open, the website I'm trying to get to flashes and then returns to the homepage. If I select it to open in a new window, it does allow me to proceded, but.....

On further investigation, this isn't just happening to my IE. If I open "My Computer" and then attempt to procede to the c drive, it does the same thing... flashes the c drive contents and returns to the my computer folder.

I'd appreciate any help as everyone I talked to here that knows anything about computers has no idea what is going on.

I bought a terabyte external hard drive the other day to back-up my important files. Some of those files are avi clips. The avi clips run OK from my internal hard drive, but they won’t run when they are copied to the external drive. The external drive will support such clips though. I had downloaded some similar clips from the Internet directly to the external drive, and they run OK. But the clips copied from my internal drive will NOT run on the external drive. How can I fix that? Also can someone explain the technical reason why this is happening. Thanks for your time

Okay so here is my problem. I recently purchased a domain name from godaddy.com, and i used dreamweaver to make a site and was able to use the dreamweaver ftp fine in WinXP Home 32 bit.

I recently moved home from school and upgraded my OS to Vista Business 64bit, and dreamweaver FTP does not work. I am still using the same router that i had while i was at school and when the FTP was working.

I have emailed godaddy support many times and they simply tell me to reset my password. I have tried using Filezilla, Dreamweaver, and even creating a FTP connection in vista. all of which give me the same "503 <user> cannot connect" error.

This is becoming extremely frustrating to me because i am 100% positive my Login informaton is correct. I have added both FileZilla and Dreamweaver as exceptions to windows firewall, along with opening ports 21, and 22. I am really at a loss as what to do next. Ive been browsing these forums and have not been able to find a straight answer. So if anyone can help me it would be much appreciated.

I am almost ready to sacrifice two cores of my processor and a gig of ram to get 32bit XP again and have my FTP work.

thank you for any help.

Running Vista and from the original installation discs tried to install two different programs, Namely "Print Artist 22 Platinum" and " Serene Scene Marine Aquarium 2" Both installations seemed to be successful and indicated that result. However there were no icons produced for the desktop and I could not get either of the programs to run.
I produced the icons myself and even clicking those neither program would run. Am I missing something ? I am trying to uninstall both programs and try the original installation disks again. Can someone help me with this problem/ I have 1 Gig Ram originally..don't know how much I've used to date.

Print Artist is compatible, but Serene Scene is not (but the manufacturer will sell you an upgrade), according to the Microsoft Vista Compatibility site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-vista

If I use chrome I can access the site and downlod the documents. I have three computers I use as part of my normal day and all are now the same. I have pinned it down to IE as the problem and have tried security settings etc but nothing that I can see to change has made any difference.

To Whom May Answer the All Knowing Questions...

I have two questions that I wish to pose to the many people here in this forum.

Laptop that I have that is in Question:
Hp Pavilion dv6920us
Intel Dual Core
3G Ram
250G HDD SATA

First Question:
I want to install XP Pro onto my computer. (Dual Boot)
Should be simple, but Microsoft has made it next to impossible.
I have read through countless forums and have tried many different things.

I have read that I needed to go find the driver for my hard drive, considering it is a SATA HDD and will not recognize the HDD when installing XP Pro. I went to HP's web site and found the HDD driver, put it on a floppy, attempted to install the driver, but then ended up with a "\i386\NTS\viamraid.sys caused an unexpected error(18) @ line 2108 in d:\xpclient\base\boot\setup\oemdisc.c" However, I have received such disc from my brother (burned copy) of XP Pro vs. 32 and I'm not sure if that was the issue.

One forum that I found gave me at least a starting point that allowed me to "shrink" my volume in Vista to create and format a partition for XP to run. It also gave a program to run once in XP so that I could have the boot option of booting back into Vista.
The following is the web site that I speak of: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...on-your-pre-installed-windows-vista-computer/
Problem: couldn't connect to internet because the driver wasn't there.
So I did some more research and came across a... Read more

A:Frustration...

Finally was able to find the program that I was speaking about, however, not the thread that I spoke of with all the drivers.

www.nliteos.com is the site that has a program that allows you to "re-create" an OS disc. This is for anyone who would like to know what the heck I was talking about. I found it on this forum: http://www.tech-talkers.com/?p=243 . Again, it is not the forum I was looking for.

I do still need help with the other drivers, the Toshiba, as well as the drivers for XP itself.
Just wanted to share.

It's been a little over a month since you guys helped me out with a computer problem. Well, it seems i'm stuck again. And yes, I did take all of the forewarned protections from last time. I'm almost positive this stemmed from a third-party facebook fanpage >_<

I log on one day to find "youporn.com", "porntube.com", and "youtubexxx.com" icons on my desktop, along with three random things with no icons, such as "trojx13", "spam436" etc, etc.
I quickly deleted them, and went on with my life. But then my computer was acting very slow. I did a system restore, and the icons were back so I deleted them again. Now my computer was having a fake virus protection thing popping up. "Av Security" or something like that. Also, most everything I try to open gets stopped and a pop up saying "Application cannot be opened. _____.exe is infected. Run antivirus?". Most of the time I can't open anything.
Also, any page i try to open on IE7 is blocked, as well as safari. I'm on firefox atm. I run windows xp on a dell pc.
I tried running Adware and Malwarebytes, but both froze at the results screen.

So I come to you for help :D

Hello, I've just installed a SSD 120GB Plextor M5Pro drive on my Ideapad z510.Laptop is now fast as hell, but cooling fan works too loud now. It activates when CPU usage is about 5% and is much louder than before. When I switched back to 1TB SSHD it's quiet again. There's no fan-controlling option in BIOS and I wonder if theres an BIOS update or addiotional driver that allows adjusting fan speed. It's very annoying becouse laptop is twice louder than before.At 40% of CPU usage temperatures are like this:And the air is cold or barely warm.I request a BIOS or driver update if there's nothing like that now - for many customers that would like to use their SSDs along with z510 model it will be very helpful. Or any other solution that work.Please help. 

A:z510 fan loud with SSD

Is it possible that you just think it is louder because the SSD it selve doesn't make any noise so will probably notice the fan more than bevor. I upgraded my Z510 to an SSD too and doesn't hear any difference.

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z510. I got it around 3 years ago, and this year, I realized that it has been running quite slow, or slower than usual. Whenever I open a chrome tab, it would take around a minute to set it up and would lag a little when I open up multiple tabs.  This is the specs of my computer.http://tech.firstpost.com/product/laptops/ideapad-z510-59-387061-specification-348262.html So, I was wondering, if I were to add more ram to my computer, would it fix this problem? Would my computer speed up and will respond/act faster? I know that I have 4 GB DDR3 right now, 2 GB that is shared with the graphics card and my task manager says that I have only used 1 out of 4 slots. Does this mean that I have another 3 empty slots that can be filled with ram? Also, is there a maximum amount of ram my computer can handle? I have seen some people ask about it but have no idea about it. So, my real question, would it be possible to add 8 GB of ram? This means that I would have a total of 12 GB ram, and would most likely have 4GB, 4GB, 4GB of ram, 3 slots taken out of 4. If I have 4 slots. But if I have 2 slots, then could I add an 8GB ram, and would have 4GB and 8GB, still totaling up to 12GB?

A:Lenovo Z510! ABOUT RAM

Hi fwachee,
 
Welcome to the COmmunity Forums.
 
Yes you can add 8GB ram to your current 4GB for a total of 12 GB.
 
As per specification from your hardware manual (page 27):
 DDR3-1600/1333MHz SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB)
 
Two slot are physically available if you would open it up for confirmation as shown below.
 

 
This would definitely improve speed and memory utilization of your machine specially with multiple browser and virtual machine apps.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi TheAliAkhgar ,

Such warning should not be ignored as I would suggest that you immediately backup all your file on a different storage and create your recovery media as soon as possible specially that this is your work pc.
 
For differential diagnostics you can run Lenovo Solution Center and similar diagnostics to check possible harddrive issue.

I did something today which created a problem in OE6. OE6 opens correcty but when I go to forward an email or reply, the window that opens does not fill the entire screen. There is a 1" gap on the right and a 1" gap at the top and I cannot drag to fill the gaps. If I hit the max button the screen fills completely, but the next time I do this procedurethe issue repeats. I have looked everyware for a solution and finally come to this site with my tail between my legs.

I pride myself on usually being able to fix my issues, but this time and this dumb an issue has stumped me. Somebody out there who still knows the antique IE6 mail client will undoubedly have my answer! LOL!

I must say I feel your pain. How many times does this happen, especially with Internet Explorer...

Instead of messing around with the windows, as this needs to be done on a regular basis, I've decided to use the heavy artillery instead. I know you'd probably prefer not to use third party software rather than finding a permanent solution, but bare with me, AutoSizer really does work and you never need to play with it. In fact, you'll even forget you ever installed it.

The program is free, light and easy to use.

Open your program or application, in your case, Reply in Outlook Express.

Run AutoSizer.


1- Select that first line where it says ATH_Note. That will be from your OE reply box.

2- Click AutoSize...

3- Select Maximize.

Click OK and you're done.

4- To exit AutoSizer, be sure to click on Hide, or else, the program will not be running in the background.

Make sure the program is set to load at Windows start-up:

I miss my Win xp features I was used to. I have not a computer in years and just got Win 10. Is this the way it is always going to be, I mean, always just having a limited choice of colors that are too bright or gaudy, not being able to change and arrange my folders the way I would like them to be, can't change the fonts, etc.? Or do I not know something yet? I have always had sensitive to light problems working long hours staring into these windows. It seems so ridiculous that the only choices are either "High Contrast Black" or "High Contrast White."Right now, the only "High Contrast" I am seeing is that Win XP was much better then this! Can anyone tell me anything I might not be knowing out there? I would greatly appreciate it. As well, I can't figure out how to get the little arrows off my icons and even the techs at Microsoft couldn't direct me how to do it without either losing my custom icon, or losing the whole program!

I have attempted tp resolve this pronblem with a tech on another site with no luck and thought I would try here. It is something I can live with but it is frustrating. I have XP SP3 and am running IE8 with a wireless router. What happens is that, while touring the net and clicking on a new site, the load bar will show about 3 bars and then stall out and I am unable to load the page. During the time the computer is on during the day and night this will only happen maybe once or twice. The only cure is to reboot. Once I reboot the problem is gone until the next time it happens. I can tell when it is about to happen by noting the symbol and site name or number at the bottom left task bar area. If I see a little black clock and see the "name" of the web site [connecting to techguy.org for example] then things will be fine. However if I see a little magnifying glass with the site number [connecting to site 207.78 for example] then I know that I will need to reboot the computer. The page will not load. Since it only happens about once or twice a day I can live with it but still would like the issue resolved if possible. Formerly trying to resolve the problem we ran complete malware scans, checked the router for number of devices connected and a few other items.
The only associated items that might have been connected to the beginning of the issue were a new wireless HP printer [which we we reinstalled to no avail] and a digital camera automatic photo load called EyeFi. [... Read more

Hi there,

I recently built myself a new gaming rig with the help of a friend of mine who is pretty computer savvy. For the most part, everything has been running perfectly and I am very satisfied. However, I am having an SLI problem, and he is out of town, so I am hoping to get help here!

Put simply, I don't believe my cards are running in SLI.

What I do know:
-Both video cards are listed under display adapters in the device manager.
-I have SLI ENABLED in the nvidia control panel.
-I am running in alternate frame rendering (1) under sli performance mode in the 3D Settings options.
-Both cards are listed under components in the system information tab within the nvidia control panel.

I am running two EVGA 320-P2-N815-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Cards.

My mobo is the EVGA 122-CK-NF67-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i LT SLI ATX Intel Motherboard.

------------------------

If you need any screenshots of anything, or any further information, let me know, because I would really like to get this resolved. (Who knows maybe Im crazy).

I also have a dxdiag.txt from a diagnosis I ran if that will help.

I was concerned about my computer and losing everything I have on it including over 8000pictures so I decided to buy an external hard drive to back up all my files. I purchased a Maxtor III 500gb one touch. My thought was that after you back up your system onto it which I did, that it would just quietly sit there and hold all the files until I updated it again by pushing the "one-touch" button. I didn't realize that it would continue to interact back with my computer randomly and cause my system to crash! Am I wrong in thinking that this is what I should expect from the "external" hard drive? I went to the Maxtor site and became very concerned and frustrated to see the overwhelming number of people who have had the same problem with this hard drive. Any suggestions?
