T470s Unable to connect with USB

Q: T470s Unable to connect with USB

For starters, I´m not a PC or IT expert so I´ll just explain my problem as I know it:I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T470s and I´m trying to open the files on an USB pendrive.When I connect the pendrive to one of the usb ports, the pendrive is clearly connect (light on) but the PC doesn´t open it.I´ve look all over and can´t find something like "connected devices" or something that would meet the same effect.I´ve found all sorts of troubleshooting on the community concerning connecting phones through USB but haven´t found anything on recognizing or accessing a pendrive´s content.Can someone please help. Bare in mind that my knowledge is very basic.Thanks a million!

Preferred Solution: T470s Unable to connect with USB

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.)


Hi I read here that T470s supports 3 independent displays.I want to have my 3 Think Vision monitors to be these 3 independent displays (preferrably all connected to the dock station) and the first of them mirroring (duplicating) the buid in Laptop monitor. I tried several things without sucess: I can for example have two monitors connected to the Dock via DP and have 3 independent displays. I can connect the other monitor to the docking station via VGA, but obvioulsy I cannot have 4 independent displays.When I try to mirror (duplicate) the internal monitor with one of the external monitors  I get the odd message :"Unable to save display settings.". During trials with different settings one time the third monitor also just showed a very low resolution and could not be changed... Another time I also created a few freezes when I pressed the apply button and not even the mouse moved and I had to turn the computer off and on again...Before I now spend any money on a bunch of cables and try all combinations and then find out it is impossible or a sofware issue (read that sometimes such an error could be related to old saved monitor configurations and a manual deleting of registry keys would be needed...). Could someone please tell me if/how this is doable at all and how to connect the third external since there are just 2 DP ports at the dock. Thanks.

Just got off the phone with Verizon. They had me push the reset button and I was able to connect to the internet again. I mentioned how slow it takes for pages to load. She said if I have two firewalls running that can happen, then eventually it blocks your internet connection. I have the free Avira and am only using the Windows Firewall. She said the Verizon router has a firewall but it's a low security. So I went on the internet was able to get on some sites, but then others wouldn't connect again, said there is no internet connection. All the lights on the router are on. So far it's still working, but this is what happened before when I lost my connection completely.

I have Windows XP, tried it both on IE 8 and Firefox. The router is an Actiontec MI42WR. The problem was with both my desktop and laptop wired connections.

Hello guys,

I have just finished my very first computer build and am rather happy with most things.

Unfortunately I am having problems connecting to the internet.

I have a temporary dongle in place and because it's my only option for about a month I kinda need it to work.

When I first connected it I found my connection and I successfully connected, I downloaded Google Chrome and Steam, then unfortunately it randomly stopped working.

Where the strength bar should of been, there was a large red cross, when I found my connection it read "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network." I Googled this and people said delete your connection and reconnect, that didn't work, so then I tried to set my security type to something different or off as recommended in a solved post, the problem persisted.

Now after restarting my computer several times it sometimes rejects my password, or comes up with the "the settings for the network..." and on rare occasions it connects then 5 minutes later comes up wit my original problem.

I have tried resetting my connection details as what is saved on my laptop and mac and they don't work either.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Regards, Lee.

Hi there, I'm having a bit of an issue with one of my computers. It's fairly new, running on Windows Vista.

I wonder if anyone can help. We recently installed a new wireless router, and all the other computers in our house can access the internet. But for some reason I can only connect to the network, even though it says there's full connectivity.

I called the customer careline for our internet providers, and they said it was a problem with my computer settings, rather than the router. But they said they couldn't advise me any further unless I paid for it, hence my need to look for advice elsewhere....

Hi there,
I'm hoping someone can help me out with this because I have tried everything I can think of with no luck.

My brother had just moved in and tried to install a wireless router and apparently everything was running fine for about 5 minutes and then the connections went weird:

When trying to connect to some websites an error message appears (can not display page) when diagnostics are run it says the connection to http and https is running fine, but it is unable to connect to ftp sites. Could be a problem with firewall settings.

I get the same message when trying to connect to windows live messanger and running the troubleshoot. FTP connection problem, check the firewall.

I had zone alarm installed, turned it off, and checked the sites, still no connection. So I turned it back on, changed a few program settings (to ensure it was allowing messanger.exe and explorer.exe) still didn't work. Uninstalled zone alarm, turned on the windows firewall and that's where it is now.

My brother called into my service provider, they got him to run a bunch of spyware/antivirus diagnostics, nothing came up (as it shouldn't I have PC Tools anti virus and spyware running) and then told him it seemed as though the connection was fine but a program on the computer was blocking some specific sites. So obviously no help there.

Anyone have any idea what could be the problem? I can't access my mail in outlook (pop3 server can't connect) and pretty much any website. google.com works, faceboo... Read more

Hope you are all doing good. From past few days I am not able to connect to any wireless networks on my laptop which is running windows 7 64-bit. I didn't change/install anything, it stopped working suddenly. I was able to connect to LAN and it's working perfectly fine. All other devices (phones and others computers) are able to connect to my Wi-Fi networks. I tried many things like re-installing my Wi-Fi adapter drivers, reset my router, clearing the Wi-Fi networks and adding them, many reboots, and few steps like clearing DNS and other settings as per the instructions on the Microsoft website. Can you please review and advise a good solution. Please let me know if you need any further info.

whats the make and exact model of the PC
you could goto the manufacturers website and download the wireless driver and re-install
OR you could goto device manager and roll-back the driver - if it has been installed
to do that
goto device manager

Device Manager
For Windows 8
If you happen to be using a keyboard with Windows 8, the quickest way to open Device Manager is via its shortcut on the Power User Menu, accessible by pressing the WINDOW key and the X key together.

2. ipconfig / release and renew.

4. net stop and start for winhttpautoproxysvc and dhcp client.
5. Turn off McAfee firewall.
6. Reset network adapter settings.

I can connect to internet in "safe mode with networking" but not in normal mode.

My current home setup is like this. I have my laptop connected directly to my modem which is also connected to a wireless router.

All other computers are able to access the 'net save for this one pc. It connects for a minute or two after startup (I'm able to surf, download, connect to MSN messanger etc), but then dies after that. If I restart the pc/modem/router, the same thing happens - It will connect to the net for a few minutes before failing again.

However, the one program that's able to stay connected is BitTorrent. Signal strength for the wireless connection is reported as excellent the whole time.

I've tried to connect the modem directly to that pc, but it's just the same thing over again except it happens in cycles - connect for a few seconds, unable to connect for several minutes, connect again for a couple seconds, etc.

Can anyone help me out?

My daughter recently encountered a problem with her Dell Inspiron Notebook, she can't connect to the internet.

Her notebook is a Dell Inspiron running Windows Vista 64. She uses Mozilla Firefox and IE 6 and neither can get a connection out all of a sudden. She has Norton 360 for Virus protection.

As I said she can get no connection to the internet or even to my router, it shows that she is connected, but it will not let her connect in regular mode.

When we boot her laptop to SafeMode with Networking it connects fine on both Mozilla and IE.

Help please.

A:Unable to connect

Is this with a wired or wireless connection in normal mode? If wireless, try wired. Also, totally disable Norton 360, and uninstall it and use the Norton Removal Tool if just disabling it doesn't work.

With a wired connection in normal mode, please do this.
Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

You need to check browser and firewall settings. This site is potentially hazardous to your computer. Check this out.http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/adultfriendfinder.comI'm copying this from site advisor's report:"Scam. This site ask you to introduce your photo and information, claming the registration is FREE. Thats UNTRUE!! when you finished to give your data, a Credit card payment form is loaded. You exit the site, but it keep your photo and info and they DISPLAYS it to the internet looking for new clients.This site trick it users to obtain personal data and photos and make money with it!"

I have a new Sony notebook in its virgin state except I have set up internet connexion identical to that on 3 other [also stand-alone] pc's. Dial-up produces Error 676, after which it's impossible to re-dial. From Outlook Express I get 'another application is using the modem'. No other app is open [there's almost nothing loaded anyway]. Modem works - I've sent a fax; diagnostic reports 'this device is working properly'. My ISP has checked and rechecked my settings - all ok. Sony say, 'close the other application' !!!!!

Any ideas?

I've been having this problem for awhile. I'll be browsing on the internet, maybe running a game like World of warcraft in the background, or have AIM on, and then all of a sudden I go to load a new page and i just get "Unable to connect". However, my computer still says I'm still connected to the internet, and WoW and AIM still run perfectly fine. But if i log out of either WoW or AIM, then i can't get back on. I tried resetting my router and stuff but the only way i can get my internet back is to restart. Once i restart, internet is up and running again on its own.

This normally happens after about 2-3 hours of continued use OR within an hour if im downloading something, and about a day if i just leave my computer alone. I dont know how to make it stop and it REALLY sucks when im in the middle of a really long download and i lose my internet connection halfway through. Ive been trying to download and play a game for 3 days now but once i start trying to download it, i get halfway there...then boom. i have to do it alll over again. I tried turning off my firewall, just to see if it stops causing that "unable to connect" thing, but i'm still getting it. I have no idea what to do

Just recently, noticed in my g-mail account, clicking on any links outside of mail, I get a "Unable to connect".

Exited out of my firewall, "Sygate" and got the same error.

I can type any url in the search bar and it goes right to it.

Home page, no problem, can click on all links.

I have recently used, "Clean up" download and thought that maybe this might be the culprit........ dont know.

Running windows xp and have all updates.

Any suggestions?

What firewalls do you have?

As you can see, my internet connection works very well, but when I try to connect using the programs World of Warcraft, Skype, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Messenger, Ventrilo, and the Blizzard installer; but AIM and the internet work fine.

I'm working with a brand new dell XPS, although the norton security has been buggy with it. I think I have it completely uninstalled now, and the problem persists.

All of them say things like proxy and firewall, but I have my router set to the most enabling and loosey-goosey security settings it will go, and I have gone in to the Windows Firewall to allow each program seperately.


Also, when I ran the blizzard installer in safe mode, I was able to connect and install World of Warcraft.

Edit: things I forgot to mention.

Facebook won't let me record a video for a wall post.

Hi brian,

This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.

The problems you are having could be related to an infection or a configuration issue with the Norton Firewall component of Norton Internet Security.

What version of Norton Internet Security were you using? Also, when you removed Norton Internet Security, did you use the Norton Removal Tool?

The first thing I would advise you to do is to use the free Norton Online Security Scan to check for infections. Click on the link below and follow the instructions to run both tests.

Norton Security Scan

Please let me know if any infections were found and also what version of Norton Internet Security you were using. If you were using a pre - 2009 version, and have a valid subscription, you are entitled to a free update to Norton Internet Security 2009, which I highly recommend. Please complete the Norton Security Scan first, let me know if any infections were found and I can then assist you further.

Thank you,

I just got my laptop home from Geek Squad and I can't connect to the internet. At first I could connect to the network, but couldn't get online. Now when I try to connect to my network it says that it could not connect to it because it is not receiving a response from the network. I've tried it with two different networks, one secured and the other not, and got the same for both. I've tried resetting the router, unplugging it and plugging it back in, I tried resetting my wireless adapter, nothing. I suspect it's either a hardware problem due to Geek Squad malpractice, or possibly something screwy with a system update.
Any help would be... helpful.

A:Unable to Connect

i think you need to upgrade the driver version for your wireless adapter since you tried connecting to several networks and having the same problem then it is isolated it is not on the your wireless network but it is on the adapter.

We have a desktop plugged via ethernet to a home hub which will not connect to the web. My laptop (from which I'm typing) is connected via wireless from the same home hub. The diagnosis program says check the firewall settings HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21). We've removed the AVAST AV but this hasn't worked. HELP!!

Do you have a modem and router? The ports may also need to be open in the router if you have one.

Right, interesting problem for anyone able to help.
Vista Home Premium SP1
Had a small hardware issue that initially caused a reboot, which was corrected (Milk spilled under keys/on keyboard), and was working fine for a couple of hours, now refuses to connect to the VPN connection required for internet
Reports an error in eventlog: Error from RasClient, 20227 (I think), The message text gives a GUID style string, then The error code returned was 0 (Or occasionally 800).

Due to lack of HDD space and AU, the only system restore point is from after the problem occurred.

The Laptop also keeps trying to apply the same update, but I don't have the exact error for that one to hand.

Any help appreciated, as we're having a couple of issues regarding a HP US warranty and repairs in the UK.
(Laptop is a HP Pavillion that an American student has brought over here)
Any and all help very much appreciated,
