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.)

In order to follow a guideline provided on this forum, I went into BIOS and pressed Fn+F9 keys to set BIOS to default settings. After that used Fn+F10 to save and exit. The laptop was supposed to restart but it is not going farther than Lenovo logo, it is trying to boot windows and after a few seconds shuts down and automatically tries again but doesn't go farther than logo. It seems that a certain setting changed in BIOS that doesn't allow windows to start. See below the default settings of my BIOS now. Please help!

Until a couple of days ago all my battery settings were working fine, but now the battery icon just disappeared in the Lenovo settings, so I cannot change anything. This is especially annoying since my chargin threshold is set to 80% and I do not know how to change it with this problem. I do not remember installing any updates, but I did change some things when my pc boots to get rid of a broken Linux partition in my boot menu. All other parts of Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion are working fine. Thanks for your help!

I seem to be having issues finding more extensive settings for my new Yoga 710 - there are some settings under Mouse Properties > Device Settings > Synaptics Clickpad V1.6 on SMB Port > Settings but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of setting areas of the trackpad. There are two things that I want to achieve: 1. Enable scrolling by scrolling on the right hand side of the touchpad (single finger scroll) 2. Disable the touchpad where the left/right click buttons are. I often hover over these buttons and it disables/moves the mouse - I need them to function as buttons, not as a trackpad/button combo (also can make clicking and dragging awkward?). Thanks heaps

I have a 433mz Celeron with 128mb RAM running Win98SE. I cannot get the display settings to give me anything better than 16 colors (the other option is 2 colors!!) and a 640x480 screen size. I ran a Belarc and have a Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) and a Sylvania F96 monitor. I've downloaded the latest drivers for each -- the graphics adapter is from Microsoft from 4-23-99 and the monitor driver is from Sylvania from 1-14-02.

I've also tried removing the display adapter and monitor and reinstalling them completely.

Help!?!
 

A:[SOLVED] Display Settings Stuck at 16

the standard pci graphics adapter only allows 16 colors.

we need to get your video drivers reinstalled.

what make and model video card do you have?

if you have onboard video, we will need either the make/model of your computer or the model number from your motherboard to find the correct video drivers for you.

if you have an actual video card, pull it out and look at it and tell us the make./model and we will find the drivers for you.

I am running Windows 2000 Pro and it was working just fine yesterday. This morning I go to turn it on and it's stuck on the loading your personal settings screen. It acts like it's about to load and than it restarts and does the same thing over and over. I did read somewhere that it probably has to do with a corrupted file in my settings...but since I'm the only one who uses the computer I don't have it set up to have more than one account setting. I can't even go into safe mode..the same thing happens. I did try to go to last known good configuration and that didn't do anything. It there a way I can log on without loading my personal settings? I can't think of anything I did yesterday that would cause this problem except that I ran a spyware scan with SpyBot and it deleted a few bad things. I also don't have a Windows boot CD since my computer was built by someone and he didn't give me the CD.

I have a dell latitude d620 and one day the up and left keys magically stopped working.. later on I had the brightest idea to see whats the lowest level of brightness possible, now I'm pretty much screwed because I cannot get the brightness back up to normal (which is a pain in the rear end) using the FN+UP combination.

I've searched the web trying to find a solution and cannot find anything, any solutions?

Help is very appreciated

A:Up key not working, Brightness stuck on low settings (FN+UP)

Welcome to Seven Forums Nurein615. I think you can adjust it in BIOS with the down right keys (I hope they work!). Here is a (poorly made ) video that will illustrate how. Basically, F2 at boot, then video settings, then brightness. Don't go too bright as you have no left key to turn it back down! Good luck!

Hello all, one of my XP computers was infected with the FBI Moneypack virus. I booted into safe mode and ran a few scans with Malwarebytes and Bitdefender 2012 and both found nothing. I deleted the main profile and created a new user account. When I try to boot normally it takes a good 5-6 minutes at the "Widnows is loading" screen. Then I finally see the user account and when I click on the account and enter the password it just stays stuck at loading your personal settings. I can boot into safe mode with networking and load up the account just fine, however every time I do I noticed in Documents and Settings it creates a new profile folder which looks something like Username.Computername.000, and keeps adding a number every time I login. Not sure where I can go from here. Thanks in advance for any help.

Sigh...very frustrating..

I have a dual language set-up going on my laptop of English as the primary and Korean as an option. For some reason, my computer shut down on its own for whatever reason, then upon start-up and log-in, the language settings were automatically changed to Korean. Unfortunately, I'm not fluent in it, so I don't know how to go about changing it back to English.
On a side-note, after this happened, there was an indication of an update on my Shut Down button, which I clicked and updated. During the update installation process, on the bottom of the screen was the usual Windows 7 logo, but had a Red-Orange "K" after it. Dunno what that was (gonna take a wild guess and say "Korean"?), but it went away..

Anyway, main problem is the language setting, which, for the record, happens often with Windows, in my experience. Anyone able to assist?

A:Trouble with language settings. STUCK!

Scratch that. I got it. Went to the Start Menu, searched "Regional and Language Settings" and hit Enter so I wouldn't have to navigate aimlessly and changed it back. Dunno why the f*** it was changed in the first place though..!

Hi All, 
 
I see this has been mentioned once before, but there doesnt seem to be any clear answer.
 
Basically the gpu on  my Yoga 3 11, is stuck at 0.48 Ghz 99% of the time, leaving the laptop more or less useless!
 
See image below.
 
Very occasionally it will get un stuck and run like a dream, ive been hoping a bios update would fix it and to be honest after an update it did seem to run un restricted for a short while. When i say it runs like a dream, its shows up at around 1.9Ghz on the Task Manager/Performance screen.
 
Its not being restricted by my power plan option (as far as i know), I usually run it on High Power setting, I have gone through the power Options and not noticed anything strange,
 
BEing either plugged in or not, doesnt make any difference.
 
I haven't noticed any pattern as to the reason why the CPU is very rarely unrestricted.
 
I have included a few pictures below and im happy to supply any other info which may help diagnosis.
 
As i say the laptop in its current state, is basically useless and only just about manages to surf the internet.
If i dont find a solution soon, i have no choice but to take it back.
 
Thanks alot in advance for you help!

HI,First of all, sorry for my english, becaouse it's not my native language... Recently i bought used lenovo T480 from ebay, and some upgrades.Its 20L5000YUS model, with i5 8250u CPU, 8GB RAM, and 256GB Toshiba nvme ssd Right after I bought it, i upgraded 8GB more ram (16GB in total), added 1TB BPX SSD NME, and another 128GB Toshiba nvme SSD (42mm) Thinkpad is running great, but one thing bother me After making change in BIOS and pressing F10 to save changes, Thinkapad just stuck. I waited 20+ minutes to reboot or something, but nothing. I alway have to turn off by foce (hold power 6 sec), and after that, system boots fine.Settings maded in BIOS are saved, but system just wont reboot... Here are video explaining what I'm sayin Things I already triedTried with power adapter attached and detached.Tried to disable one hard disk, then another, same thing. Tested hardare with Lenovo UEFI boot, all seems OK.I downgraded BIOS to 1.23 to check if there is a problem with BIOS version, but problem persist. (I returned later to latest BIOS 1.24)Tried to disable secure boot, trid to erase all keys within BIOS, but problem is still here I have two more thinkpads (older models) and I know that this is not normal behaviour. Anyone know what's may be the problem? P.S. Thinkpad is in waranty 650+ more days, but I'm not sure if I can claim warranty, becaouse i bought it used.

A:T480 stuck after saving BIOS settings

Warranty rules are different in different countries.  In U.S. buying used is no problem, but I don't know about Serbia.  You need to check with local support.  Boot into the BIOS and load defaults (F9) and save.  See if that helps.  Pull out the hardware you added: memory, SSD, etc.  See what happens with the original configuration.  What is the boot order?  Remove network boot.

As the title describes. I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My SSD only has 15GB free space or so. SP1 has failed for me twice: First time it gave me an error code, most likely due to lack of free space (say, you need at least 15GB). On second time, it's frozen with a black screen saying "reconfiguring Windows settings" in Finnish.

I tried booting to safe mode with network, it worked just fine. I cannot open Windows Update from there though, and My Computer tells me that I have 14,7GB free space on my C:/, which is my SSD drive.

Just to be sure, I also left it reconfiguring settings overnight with no results.

Now I can't use my computer in any other than safe mode, which sucks obviously. Any fix for this to cancel the update?

Cheers and thanks in advance!

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

According to Microsoft, your version of Windows requires drive space of at least 20GB for installation puposes.

Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

The reason you can run in Safe Mode is because only the minimum files and drivers to get Windows up and running. What is the total size of your SSD? If it's less than 40GB I'd suggest getting a bigger drive. (Do you have anything on the SSD other than Windows 7?)

Hello,

I am having a major problem logging into windows. When I get to the log on screen, and click my user name (the only one available) it gets stuck on "loading personal settings".

My first reaction was to boot from CD, at which point I could not get my USB keyboard to work during the boot which made it impossible to "hit any key to boot from CD", so I fixed that by plugging the keyboard into the default keyboard port with an adaptor.

When I managed to boot from CD, I tried to do a repair install and got the message "Setup cannot find Hard disks bla bla cannot continue, windows will restart".

I have 2 hard drives in raid 0.

Help!
 

A:Stuck;Loading personal settings,Win Cd boot HD not found

Does the BIOS recognize the HD's?
Did you load the drivers for the Raid during installation?

Hello!

I have a new Dell Latitude E5540 with Intel HD graphics card and an Nvidia Geforce GT 720M graphics card. The Intel card seems to be handling the main graphics with the nvidia card looking after the physics.

I need to connect to a Dell 2007FP monitor to the laptop but it seems I have set an incorrect resolution in the Intel HD grtaphics card settings for this monitor.

It only allows me to change the settings for the monitor when it is pluigged in, but when it is plugged in it just flickers on and off so I cant get to the settings!!

Are the settings stored in the background somewhere where I could change them?

You help is very much appreciated.

The Intel GPU will run under normal circumstances (everyday use such as browsing, Word/Excel files etc, watching videos) whereas the nVidia GPU will kick in and take over when needed, for example when gaming.
