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 expected the USB-C travel hub to be compatible with this laptop. Unfortunately, when I plug it in, nothing happens. Tried both USB-C ports. Issuing 'dmesg' at the crosh prompt returns the following message:[ 6032.783571] usb usb2-port1: Cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?
[ 6043.032194] usb usb2-port1: Cannot enable. Maybe the USB cable is bad?

Hi, I really like the Thinkpad look and feel (and of course the keyboard) and I'm in the market for a new Chromebook.  But I'm a bit reluctant to buy a model which seems to be 2 years old already. Is there any information available on when we might expect a hardware refresh on the Thinkpad Chromebook 13 line?

Hi all, I just got an i3 Thinkpad Chromebook 13 and love it except for that it seems that the USB-C port closest to the hinge does not charge the ThinkPad nor does it output video when I use a USB-C to DisplayPort dongle. The other USB-C port does both, however. Does this mean that my port is dead or is this normal behavior? If so, how fixable is this? Of course, my ThinkPad is 3 months out of warranty.

Pros- 8GB RAM is much needed for ChromeOS power users.- Core i3 and i5 are also much needed for ChromeOS power users.- FHD and higher resolution IPS screens are much needed for ChromeOS power users.- ThinkPad build quality. Cons- Keyboard doesn't have a red TrackPoint mouse??? Lenovo hasn't released a ThinkPad Chromebook with a TrackPoint mouse since the 2013 x131e. That x131e Chromebook isn't for sale anymore, so there aren't any current options for ChromeOS users. Why take it away and not have something suitable for replacing it? I really love ThinkPads and ChromeOS. I want to spend money on a product which is both, but each recent Chromebook Lenovo has been missing some important feautre. Very disappointing. :'(

The keys are still not working. My computer is only a few months old. Is there anything else I am not thinking of doing? It is currently under warranty. Should I just take it to a Lenovo authorized service provider? The closest one to me is an hour away. I would appreciate any help.

While working on my Chromebook, it is relatively common that under a medium amount of system strain, the system will completely shutdown (especially doing video google hangouts). Upon rebooting and logging in, the system will often shutdown again. Usually, I have to reboot, turn off wifi, log in, and close as many tabs as possible before it force shuts down again. I repeat this process until I can close enough tabs to break the cycle of it shutting down quickly. The laptop itself does not feel especially hot so I would be surprised if it were a thermal issue. I've tried powerwashing but have run into the same issues. Pretty disappointed since the laptop is just over a year old...

Are there eventually another limitations? 3.

So it appears after doing some research that the 14"  HP Chromebook has a lot of issues with the keyboards not working. My daughters is a little over a year old and completely quit working today. I can't even power it off!  If this is a common issue why not own up to it and take care of this HP? I have a service plan through Walmart and they are sending me a package to mail it back in 5 days and then who know how long it will take to get it back from there. In the meantime my daughter will be so far behind in school and homework that she will likely never catch up this semester.  Ugh!  Extremely frustrating. My daughter is so upset and crying and she did nothing wrong!

Wasn't sure where this would fit in so sorry if this is the wrong spot....

After Consulting with someone from Geek Squad and them telling me it might be worth a look, I decided to come here for advice. I have also come up short after tons of Googling.

So as the title states, I have a HP Chromebook 14. I'm currently using the talk to type option as I've recently come across some issues that happened out of nowhere. I want to say that I've never spilled anything on this keyboard so we will rule that out. I am done a hard reset, power wash, I've checked my keyboard settings, am I still can't seem to figure out what is happening. I even took the damn thing apart to see if there is dust or something lodged in there.

A lot of my keys still work. I have a couple that don't work at all. And I have a couple that when I press them, something else happens. For example:

when I press the letter c: zcvx,m?>
when I press the letter e: qerwiuPO
when I press d: a page opens up to save a file.

And a couple other freaky things.... Just wondering if there's anything else that I can do or if it's even worth trying to have somebody look at it. I've had this thing for about 3 years in the warranty ran out last year. It just sucks cuz everything else works perfectly fine.
