Lenovo C330 Chromebook thoughts after 1 month of use.

Q: Lenovo C330 Chromebook thoughts after 1 month of use.

Umm... Hello? Is this thing on? Okay, here it goes. I wanted to share my experiences so far with my new Lenovo C330 Chromebook. Let me start off first by saying, this is my first Chromebook. Previously, I had been using 64-bit Intel Core laptops that I ended up wiping Windows off of and installing some flavor of Linux or another. I am a one-click, out-of-the-box type of user, so distros such as Ubuntu and EndlessOS did me just right. As for the Lenovo Chromebook C330, I love it. Although the touch screen display isn't as sensitive as other touch screen displays I've used (it doesn't take too kindly to a capacitative stylus, the ones with the rubber nib, unless you press hard which means I guess I will just be using my finger after all *sigh*), and the SD card sticks way too far out of the slot, I can get used to these things.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo C330 Chromebook thoughts after 1 month of use.

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.)

No matter what I do -- attempting to recharge, holding down on/off -- nothing works. All that happens is the chrome icon comes up on an otherwise white screen, then clicks off. Anyone else had this ha0pen with a relatively new device? More important, any ideas about what to do? Thanks! Cate

Brand new P53 - i9-9880H / 32GB / 1TB / RTX4000 after using for 1 month... Experienced isssues with the following: 1) Precision Touchpad and track buttons auto clicking and auto selecting. Tapped once but it double taps. Changed settings in windows from sensitivity to ease of access, uninstalled and reinstalled to latest drivers. Spoke with support and now it has to go back to depot for repairs.  2) Spacebar squeak noise 3) Battery life average giving maybe 2.5 hrs (just day to day usage - no heavy resource software running - vscode, office, etc) I had high expectations but my P50 is giving me less issues than the P53. Quite frustrating.

Hello, I have a Lenovo 11e chromebook.I am trying to figure out the Auto Update Expiration for it.  Normally, I can get this from https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=enIf you look through there, you can see there are a few mentions of Lenovo 11e with different date based on it's generation.  How can I figure out its generation?Lenovo.com's warranty lookup says its model number is 20DU0003US and its warranty expired 2015-09-04.  I have not been able to use that infromation to look this up.  I have been looking at listings on Lenovo's site and Amazon for the various 11e's trying to compare them to what my model has: "Intel Celeron N2930 processor (1.83GHz)
4.0GB RAM
Google Chrome
11.6in 1366x768
Integrated HD Graphics
Bluetooth 4.0
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2X2 AC
4 Cell Lithium-Ion" I have not been able to find matches for any generation.  It seems sorta close to 1st gen, but it is not the same.Any help would be appricated.  Thank you.

Has any one out in ChromebookLand been able to use the acclaimed system to show picture full screen from sets of jpg files? Due to the puny memory capacity, and difficult to work with external SD card slot, I tried to connect a Sandisk Media drive. The Media drive connects very well, but the display operations of pictures is just not professional.  The keystrokes are quasi not functional or not present.  When giving the show, I need to waste time explaing the customer what to do, and the 'slides' are not full screen, but small.  The colors ARE GREAT, but that is about it. As an aisde, any one ever wonder why the letters are in lower case????  My 5 year old asked me.

Hi, I just purchased my Lenovo N22-20 Chromebook from Amazon. However, I am having problems getting into Recovery Mode using the instructions published here https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1080595?hl=en-GB&source=genius-rts. When I press and hold esc + refresh, then press the power button (for about half a second)- it immediately shutsdown my chromebook, it doesn't go into recovery mode. I tried this sequence with the chromebook off and it does nothing. I tried the sequence before and after logging in too.  I also tried esc + refresh on it's own as some posts suggested just those two keys. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a different set of keystrokes that need to be used with a Lenovo N22-20? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I noticed after having my laptop for about 2 weeks, that the port area in the top left corner was bending/splitting apart where the top and bottom cases joined.  I hadn't dropped it, looked carefully and didn't see any place that it would have fastened together previously, so assumed it was a defect and I would send it back for repair.  Since I could find no online repair request system (seriously, **bleep**?) I had to wait until I had time to call, which took about a week.  I was informed that if my laptop was 21 or less days, they would fix it or send me a new one.  It was 22.  The guy took pity on me and said they would repair it for free anyway, and it would take about a week. I printed the tag, waited a few days till there was a lull at work, and sent it in, crossing my fingers that I would get it back before I got slammed.  It wasn't even recieved by the repair depot for almost a week.  Then, it took them 3 days before they looked at it.  Then, they called and told me I had to call back during normal business hours (again, no way to do this without waiting on hold), and authorize $180 worth of repair, or they would send it back to me still broken, because I obviously dropped it (Though, no, I didn't).  I asked if I could see pictures/evidence that I had dropped it.  They promised they would send it, I authorized the repairs, because the thing is brand new, and I don't want it coming apart.  They said it would be rep...

Hi everyone, I come here in a last hope, I order the legion y530 with the 1060gtx two months ago and it suddenly frooze in a middle of a game and shut down, now each time I try to boot it, it light up and go back to sleep and does this idefenetly. I know I have a warranty but I bought the product in Switzerland and I'm travelling trough Asia, I could repair it in Bangkok but I'm leaving the city for Tokyo in less than 10days so it's impossible to fix it in time, is there a way to repair in in Tokyo in less than a month and by only speaking English? I'm really disappointed by this product and if I could I would defentely get a refund, but I'm pretty sure it's impossible. Oh and have I said my work depend on it? Yhea this laptop put me in a terrible position. I hope there is a easy and quick solution.  Cheers guys

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Just something that we as a schoolboard found out about these devices, is that they use a magnet to sense when the lid is closed.  This issue that this causes is that if you have the devices stacked on top of each other that the magnet from the device below will stop the top one from turning on.  Some of our techs had them stacked while they were trying to enroll a large number of devices.  This is just an FYI.

My son and I both own this Digital Camera and also signed up with Kodak as a member.
My son sends me emails of Videos and pictures he has taken with the Kodak.
We also have downloaded the Easy Share Software.
My question is:-
How do I transfer these pictures, videos., to my Easy Share Software?
I open the email and saved the email to "My pictures"., when I open my pictures and try to transfer to my Kodak Easy Share software, I am not allowed!
When I open the particular email in my pictures there is a "Explorer Logo" in the email.
Since I very new at all of this, is there a procedure to "transfer (not sure of the correct word) to get these email pictures into my Kodak alburms?
Would appreciate any help on this. The Kodak site does not have any suggestions for my question.
 

A:Kodak Easy Share C330 Digital Camera

I think the problem you're having is trying to save the entire e-mail. If you save the pictures or video to My Documents you can run the EasyShare program, click Add Pictures, and select the location from the window that pops up. You can add the images to an album or make a new one. You can even save the images to the Kodak folder inside My Documents/ My Pictures to make it easy to find.
