Q: Lenovo Y50-70 negative (i think) wires keeps burning up...

As the title says and this is my second cable already, the original completely burned the socket so I had to break it to get the new cable to fit the socket. The weird thing about it (to me at least) is that, unless you open the laptop cover, you can't even tell that anything is wrong because everything works fine, my laptop isn't overheating when gaming or anything. (Used to have a heating problem but managed to fix that with Intel Extreme tuning utility and some better drivers). Edit: The image of the socket inside the laptop is included below.

Hey guys,Recently I woke up to a nightmare of a laptop issue. Laptops battery was dead and charger wasn't working. Once more, If I plugged in the charger, it would make this odd pulsing noise.Upon further investigation, I could smell something burning coming from the laptop. The adaptor isn't what's wrong from my belief as I ordered a new one and it made the same noise as the first. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it?Edit: The laptop is a year and half old.

A:Lenovo Y510p - Charger not working/burning smell

It blown inside and maybe blowing the power supplies if it has not output either now.

I am extremely disappointed at Lenovo's manufacturing quality and its customer service. This is my first Lenovo laptop I ever bought, and it may be the last depending on a satisfactory resolution to my problem.On 01/31/2017, I reported that a Lenovo Flex3 exhibited a burning smell accompany by periodic electrical sparks I saw from the back of the computer while charging the battery. I immediately pull the plug out of the computer, but the problem persisted for another 2 hours until the battery was apparently completely discharged. For fear of fire, I took the computer to work afraid of losing my home to electrical fire (I could no longer trust that computer).More disappointing were the false promises I received from customer service saying that my case will be escalated, and I should receive a call within 3 days for further instructions. Three business days passed without any response from Lenovo, which I found unprofessional considering the gravity of the situation.On the fourth day I called customer services again, and I heard the exactly same story that my case has been escalated, and that I should receive a phone call within 24 hours (broken record). I have seen other complains in this forum concerning bad services that took up to four months for a satisfactory resolution. I sincerely hope that my case does not take that much time; otherwise, I will present a complaint to the Better Business Bureau.I will give an update on the customer service performance as soon as I hav...

That sounds extremely dangerous, and if Lenovo support continues to not take this matter seriously, you should probably report the issue to the US Consumer Products Safety Commision before someone gets hurt.

I got AT&T Dryloop Internet a few months ago, but about 3 weeks ago my Internet suddenly stopped working. I found out later that the cord that runs under the house had been cut all the way through in a couple places; it's like someone intentionally crawled under there and cut them. Now I'm faced w/ a huge bill to get an AT&T repair person to fix it. If anyone could give me some advice on what to do or alternatives, that would be great.

A:Help! My Wires Have Been Cut

like any DSL, "dry loop" (which just means there is no voice line on the phone service) is run over copper wire. In homes, this is usually insulated and shielded wire with four interior wires called "two pair," again typically with red, green, yellow, and black. Chances are you are using the red and green. If the colors don't match, don't worry. Just make sure you connect the same wires to the same terminals.

Go to Radio Shack or your local hardware store and get an inline connector for outdoor use. Simply connect one color from one side of the cut to the same color on the other side of the cut, and all should be well.

You can splice the wires directly, but that could cause more line noise than you want.

Alternatively, just re-wire the connection from your phone box to the wall. Red to red, green to green.

Remember that phone wires are "hot" and run at low voltage, so if you corss live wires you will get a but of a wake up call -- nothing big and sure as heck not like 120V current, but stronger than putting your tongue on a nine volt.

While you are at the hardware store, you can buy a wire tester that plugs into the jack and tells you if you have the wires hooked up correctly or not. Just don't plug anything into the jack until it tests positively, and you are good to go. Crossing phone wires is not by any means the end of the world, and nothing will happen while you are testing.

Hi all,

Just a small question im looking to add a fan to my comp to exhaust the heat out, the only fan i can get has 1 red and 1 black wire (about 20cm long) coming out of it, im at ends on how i would install it in the computer as i heard that fans come with 3 pin connectors or something that simply you plug into the motherboard.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Fan- with 2 wires?

A standard fan just has the power lead (red and black), others are designed to plug on to the board and as such can be either controlled or monitored by the motherboard, these can have 3 wires.

To connect a standard 2 pin plug you can either feed it directly from one of the molex plugs using an adaptor cable or see if your board has a 2 pin power socket.

Im no expert in modding and cooling, this is based on general use of a PC.

"The negative effect" I assume you mean the colors are backwards, white is black, green is purple, etc, etc

If this is the case there should be a strange key on your keyboard that looks like a white A and a black A. Usually you hit the function key then hit the other reverse key to change the colors around.

Otherwise... you will need to find your video card settings and mess around with the gamma section majorly.

Thanks ^.^
 

A:Negative % in download??

What it means is fairly straight forward. Of the huge download, only 11% has been downloaded and 11% of 2.5GB is about 160mb. It is estimated to take 4 hours to download such a large file. If you are on dial-up, it might take that long! On DSL or cable, it should not take that long. Does that answer your question?

Hi. I recently opened up my PC to check on some connections, and in order to get at them I took out my TV tuner card. I discovered, much to my amazement and shock, that the Cable TV coaxial cable was "buzzing". It seemed to be vibrating slightly, and I felt a tingling sensation on my finger, as if there were some electric current running through the cable that was strong enough to be very noticable, but not dangerous. This was on the outer sleeve. I took the cable by the plastic coating to try to put it back on the TV tuner's jack, and the inner "spike" made a small spark when it touched the tuner's jack. Now, I know that there is obviously some current running through a cable wire to transmit the picture, but I have NEVER seen a wire with this much electricity, and am pretty "freaked out". I'd like to know what this could mean, and what to do about it. Thanks!

This is a symptom of an improperly grounded cable system. My advice to you is to contact your cable provider and get it check into.

There is no point in trying the wires randomly. You will end up with a fried USB device.

Look up the pinout of the USB header for your motherboard that will tell you what signal goes to what pin. It should be somewhere in the manual or on the manufacturers website.

title says it all. i was messing around with electric sheep the screen saver application and i had been hearing my second hdd shutting off and turning back on which used to happen to me like 8 months ago but I hadnt seen it since then. So the hard drive shut off and the front led's started to flicker and my temp gauge went blank. my current window said (not responding) and I started to smell the worst smell ever. burning electronics

I looked to the open side of my computer the left side and saw smoke barreling out so i immediately pulled the power cord out. after the smoke cleared I panic'd and when through everything i thought could be wrong.

I did notice that one of the issues was the flickering led on the front of my computer so i opened the panel and examined the exposed cables on the front which were hot to the touch which isnt normal. upon taking the back panel of my case off I noticed the wire leading to the front led was all bubbly and fried. the cord had soldered itself to 3 other wires (one being the temp gauge).

A:Smoking wires

It sounds like your power supply is faulty. Chances are really good with that much voltage/current going through the board, enough to melt a wire coming off the LED header, that your board is toast as well. You might get lucky, though. I've seen a power supply melt it's wires (well, they actually caught fire) and the motherboard survived.

Take a look at this image

I have two similar headsets like these.

Headset A: I play a game that requires for me to hear where a gun shot is being fired from so I can't use this one. NO malfunction

Headset B: Incoming audio I can't hear because the wire for it got messed up somehow

Solution: Is it possible for me to cut the INCOMING AUDIO wire "green" I think, on both Headsets, strip them down from the black layer, and then tie the wires together? I've heard of people doing this but wasn't sure.
 

A:Connecting Wires

You could probably solder them together. But keep in mind inside the green wire there is more than one wire.

Hello everyone! So I have an HP Notebook g2 and recently the part of the metal that connects the monitor part towards the keyboard and everything else was destroyed. No problem however since I could still use it. However, after a while the monitor had stopped working (or rather it is faint and I can see it if I flash a light over it but barely), when I looked into the wires that were hidden where that piece of metal once was some of the wires were cut and it seems they will no longer work. My question is  what are those wires, and what can I do to fix it? My warrenty already expired so I just want to buy anything I need to before sending it to a friend. 

A:My monitor wires are cut...

Hi, I've got no idea what is your machine. Please use the following instructions to find out the model/product of your machine:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00033108 Knowing your machine, I may be able to send you part list and you can work out what is it. Specially what is the metal part which I have no clue at all.Regards.

I have a Gigabyte G-VAX MB but can't find the manual to connect the case wires. The motherboard is virtually impossible to read and the PDF manuals I've downloaded are not much help either. Could someone help me with this, maybe a good blown-up diagram? My eyes ain't what they used to be!

Thanks,
Gary

There's probably quite a few here at TSG with that problem. I purchased a good pair of reading glasses, a decent magnifying glass, & a small but very bright LED flashlight. It also helps if you have good natural light from a window. I often use the kitchen counter as a work area. Plenty of natural & artificial light available.

Having a patient helper to assist with holding a light & has younger eyes is a plus.

Getting a respectable blowup MB pic will probably require considerable Google searching.

Hey

I figured out how to make my fans go slower by cutting yellow and black and leaving red, then leaving the black disconnected and connecting the black to the yellow from fan to connector.
Is it possible to make it go even slower?

Second thing is I also have a 2 pin fan, is it possible to mod that as well to go slower?

A:Modding wires on fan

A 120ohm resistor will slow a fan down enough to make it almost silent!!

Hi,

I have a block of office where by mistake the ethernet cables where cut by the construction guys.

However, on the side of the HP switch (in our server room) the wires are still connected - since we don't know exactly which wire terminates where.

Does that cause any kind of issue or represent any risk?

Thanks
 

A:Ethernet Wires Cut

As long as you don't mix power or telephone cables with the cut wires, there's no significant risk. Time to start fixing cables.
