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.

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.

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.

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.

I have been having this problem on almost all games i try and play. Originally it started out as bad latency in World of Warcraft and frequent disconnections, after reinstalling i could barely patch, now i can't even connect. I downloaded several other games, including Allods online, after a night of trying to patch i got the game running only to log in and see "A connection could not be established". C9 didn't work also. I have small knowledge of what to do but so far i've:

- Opened ports they told me to.
- Disabled firewall, changed the exceptions, etc.
- Unplugged router, modem, and anything inbetween.
- Connected directly to the modem.

I don't know what else i can do. This computer was running great until i downloaded Blizzards new patch, and everything just fell apart. Please for the sake of my sanity help me.

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.

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,

Good evening,

I am not sure whether this query belongs in this thread or the networking thread. Sorry if I've made the wrong decision.

I am having some difficulty connecting to the internet with anything at all - Internet Explorer, Firefox, World of Warcraft client, etc. I connect through cable internet, and have wrapped up a lengthy conversation with the tech support people at my ISP. They are convinced, and I'm inclined to agree, that the problem is on my machine. The proper lights are flashing on my modem (which connects directly to my computer). I have an icon on my taskbar indicating that I am connected properly. The ISP folks are suggesting that something, possibly a firewall, is preventing any connection. Everything was working fine earlier today, and I did nothing to chane my system, but it would seem something has kicked in.

So, the bottom line is, as far as my ISP is concerned, everything looks fine. As far as I can tell, everything appears ok, IE and Firefox are just unable to connect to anything.

I have ZoneAlarm and AVG anti-virus (free version) installed, and have tried disabling them. This does nothing.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.livefish.com.au.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I am at a loss. I have followed empty cache, and every fixup I could find and I still cannot access this one solitary website which went down a few days ago.
I am told the website is online now and is being accessed by other website users.
Not even my old pc can access it.
All other sites and applications do load just fine.
My IE cannot find it either.

C'mon, Can someone help, we really need our moderator in Livefish.com.au..
Pretty please

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 have wifi connection and 2 laptops. One is windows 7 and other is windows 8. In windows 7 the connection is smooth. In windows 8, it shows connected however i am unable to connect to anything. What can i do? I was using smoothly till yesterday. After my wife updated windows 8 such problem rose.

A:unable to connect

After my wife updated windows 8 such problem rose.Click to expand...

the update may have changed the device driver for the wireless adapter

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.
If on a touch screen - have a read here http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/a/device-manager-windows-8.htm
​Once you are in device manager then navigate to:

network adaptors, click on the + > you should see a list of devices
one will have a name with "wireless" in
right click on that device
Driver tab>
there will be an option to roll-back

Good Afternoon all, I hope you're enjoying this beautiful weather!! Well, you won't be able to for another few minutes.

I'm here because the web is useless and despite me searching through pages of forum threads and Google searches, I have found nothing that relates to my problem exactly.

Here is a (very aesthetically-pleasing, if I do say so myself!) diagram of my setup of computers around my home:

PC 2 is getting its internet through ICS from PC 1. This is done in the diagram through a yellow line (an ethernet / CAT5 cable) - works fine. The red lines in the diagram represent any wireless connections amongst the (can I call it a network yet? )

Now, my whole intention here is for the computers to happilly share their files over the network, without any of this homegroup hassle - as it's not really needed afaik?

All of the computers are visible on eachother's 'Network' page in W7.

Now, here is what can access what:

When choosing another PC from PC-1:I can access PC-2 (Daniel-PC) and its files fine.
I can access laptop (MANDY-PC) and its files fine.

When choosing another PC from PC-2:I cannot access PC-1 (Daniel-GPC). I receive the inevitable message of:
I can access laptop (MANDY-PC) and its files fine.

When choosing another PC from LAPTOP (MANDY-PC):I can access PC-1 (Daniel-GPC) and its files fine.
I can access PC-2 (Daniel-PC) and its files fine.

The part in red that I've highlighted above is the problem here. The fact that I can access PC1 -> PC2, but ... Read more

A:Unable to connect to one PC, but can the other way

Ideally you would place a switch before PC-1 then plug both PC-1 and PC-2 into that switch rather than messing with ICS because ICS appears to be the problem in this case although that is hard to say for certain.

Homegroups would be an easier way to go, it's the opposite of a hassle which you are having now.

Besides that you could try adding the credentials from PC-1 to PC-2, via the control panel>credential manager>Windows credentials.

Also be sure and check that the time/date settings are in sync on all machines.

Today I started having problems connecting to the Wi-Fi at my house. This morning I could at least connect to the network but wasn't able to access anything on the internet not even my router's setup page. Now I can't even connect to the network at all. I've tried everything, even restoring from a system image I made that worked perfectly. Every other device in the house connects without a problem, including multiple iOS devices, Android devices, Windows 7 & 8 computers.

I can see the networks listed I just can't connect to them.

Any idea what's wrong? The only thing I can think of is the wireless card is dying but if that's the case why can it still see the networks?

A:Can See Wi-Fi But Unable To Connect

I guess I just limited the problem to the router. I brought my laptop to work and it connects immediately to the Wi-Fi there. In fact the router at work is the same exact router I have at home (Asus RT-AC66U) and its setup exactly the same (minus SSID) because I set it up. I guess I have to totally reset my router at home to factory settings and see what happens. Edit - Nevermind this. The computer acted exactly like it did at home at first, it connected to the wireless, it even went to a website and then within a couple of minutes couldn't load any site and now it can't sign onto any network, they're visible but you can't log in to one.

Hi - I am having problems connecting to the web using IE but the problem seems only to be with my user account.

I am running XP and have 4 user accounts for various members of the family. When I try to connect to the web via IE I just get the normal error screen. I tried different browsers, including Avant and Opera but still no joy.

I then got in contact with the 'technical' section of my ISP (NTL) who after running various tests stated that I must have a problem with IE and I should contact my local PC World store to see if they could help! This did not seem to explain why I could not access the web via a different browser.

I then tried to connect via the other 3 user accounts and was able to do so each time. It appears that it is only my account that seems somehow to have become 'corrupt'
Is there an answer to this? My e-mail is fine.

Any help would be most appreciated. I have even had to register my wife on TSG just so I can post this question!

A:Unable to connect to IE

If anyone can help with the problem I am having connecting to IE I would be grateful.

I have been having alot of trouble lately. Every time I try to click on a site I get an unable to connect message, if I go back and try again it usually goes through the third or fourth time clicking the link.

This is happening with every site. I am running windows ME. I have tried disabling Norton, running ccleaner, all spyware utilities and nothing helps. It has taken me about 45 minutes just to be able to post this message.

My computer is also very slow.

Any ideas
