Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 700 touchscreen acting funny!

Q: Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 700 touchscreen acting funny!

Within the past couple days my screen has been acting like someone is holding the touchscreen down on the top bar. so the option to right click something comes up. it mainly happenes when i'm watching youtube but it's getting worse ( sometimes it takes a few seconds to allow me to move the mouse ) and happening more often. I've tried the calibrate, I've changed the batteries in my mouse, I've tried removing my mouse ( just to make sure it's not that ) but it's still happening. help?

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.)

My Hp Pavilion touchscreen will be acting fine for a while and then will just act up. I will be doing something on my computer and all the sudden, it will act like I'm touching it all over the place. It'll pull open Internet browsers, apps, etc. And it will also exit out of the things I am in all on its own. I don't know what is wrong with it and would either like to try and fix it or send it back. Today it did it for a half an hour and that is the first time its been that long. If someone could help me, please help!

Hi All Bit of an issue - not major but anoying.  Two thirds of the screen will not work with touch.  Right hand side seems to work whilst the two thirds working from the left side will not work.  Occasionly, I can get the task bar at the bottom to work by touch - the windows button for instance but noting after.  I have activated tablet mode but no difference - I did try to see if a calibration might help but as it does not work via touch, I'm not able to perform the setup other than from the right hand side and of course thes test starts on the left!  Using the BT mouse and keyboard all works perfectly. Any ideas please? Many thanks Steve

Dear,I've got the AIO 700-24ISH All-in-One (ideacentre) with Windows 10 system. After latest cumulative system update I have had to disable touchscreen driver as it started to generate random actions. I've tried to reinstall driver but it does not help. I'm not even sure whether this is driver or device problem. I've tried to find out any solution or the same problem description but without result.

Hi all, I bought an ideacentre AIO 700 - S4ISH on Saturday. In 3 days it has probably frozen at least 10 times - when the P.C is doing very little. The only way to recover is to Switch off and back on again - which i cannot suffer with for much longer. My excitement for getting a new PC has turned into total disappointment in 3 days !!. I have run the Lenovo scan and all hardware comes back 100%. Is there a solution to this, or shall i simply return it to the retailer as faulty/not fit for purpose ??

I feel your pain.  I had to replace my initial one over the counter at Best Buy back in December.  Second one is working OK. May I suggest you check all your drivers and make sure they are the newest.  If that doesn't fix your problem, try a second unit.

Hi, I have a brand new ideacentre 510 AIO with touchscreen, and had been noticing that the touch functionality would occassionally be disabled. A reboot would fix the problem. This week I realized that this occurs everytime the machine goes to sleep - when it resumes from sleep, the touchscreen no longer works. Has anyone encountered this before? Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks!

Hi everybody, this is my first post here. I've been using the search feature a great deal, and while I've found several very similar problems I've found no definitive answers.

Heres the deal. Very recently(about 2-3 weeks ago at most) My CD-RW drive started acting up. It is a Mitsumi CR-48X5TE. I have the latest drivers/updates for it. The problem is that it will seemingly recognize and read audio CD's without a hitch, but when it comes to data CD's most of the time the CD will spin a bit in the drive and then either it will not be recoginzed as being even in the drive( complete with red/orange flashing light) or it will act as if recognizes the CD but a look at the My computer-> Cd drive icon/exploring the drive shows the data cd as a audio one with a single track!. I am at a loss as to what to do.
I am currently running Windows ME ( I know, I know) on a 800 Mhz machine with a good 30 gig of HD space and 128 MB of Ram.

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreceiated(sp).

-Sincerely
 

A:CD-RW acting funny...

Is this the only CD drive in the system or do you have reader also if you do then dose that one read correctly. Iím asking because it sounds like you associated data CD's to audio.

Hello everyone. I just reinstalled windows because my computer was acting slow and sluggish, thinking it would fix the problem, but the problem persists.

It takes forever for it to load up windows, and it actually sits on the "Loading Windows Xp Pro" Screen for 51 seconds before finally flickering to a black screen for a few seconds, then finally shows my accounts to log on to.

Once windows is loaded my mouse is very jerky and the sound you hear when windows first loads up begins to sound very choppy as well.

I also have an "Unknown" Device in device manager but I don't know what device it's talking about! I have all of my drivers installed and they are all up to date and all my hardware appears to be working fine.

Not sure where to really ask this question. Everytime I put in a cd (blank or already with data) before I can even exlplore the cd a window pops up announcing that my printer is being configured. Meassage say to please wait while configuring.

Eventually a pop up box labeleld HP All-In-One series with 4 steps appears (checking system, prepare to install, install, configure) . Once it finishes I can do what I want with the cd. One time I hit ctl alt del and stopped the process. got a message that ice 2.5 was stopped from exectuing.

What is this and how can I fix it!
 

A:CD R/ Acting Funny

That could date back to a failed or interupted or installer probelm if an HP all in one driver and software disc was ever placed into that dirve and run. Or it could be something else. I'd want to know if its possible an HP all in one was ever installed first.

You could check the autorun properties of the drive and either restore the defaults or check each CD type to see if the action is set to what you intended.

My mother in laws HP based Windows Vista PC is acting funny. About a week ago it would not let her on the internet. She would the IE icon. Her google homepage would come up but not let her do anything. I had a little bit of time on Sunday. I brought my flash drive that I loaded a .exe file of google chrome on just to make sure it was not a issue with Internet Explorer. Her computer would not install the flash drive so I could not install chrome. For giggles I tried to run windows defender and I got an error message, I tried to access windows firewall and got an error message. I tried to restore her computer back to 1 month ago and got an error message. I opened up her Norton antivirus and It did not detect anything with either the quick or full scan. I had to leave at that point. I told her to save any photos or other files she does not want to lose to a DVD. This morning she is going to bring me her computer. On the phone this morning she told me she got a call from World PC Solutions telling her that her computer was infected and they could help. She declined. This sounded fishy to me. I may try burning a disc of "Windows Defender Offline" and doing a reboot using that media? Let me know your thoughts.

Hello all I had some help before with this pc and now want some more if I can. I have a Dell XPS 600 with XP MCE SP3 2GB DDR2 RAM and a Pentium D 830 @3.0Ghz I have a gt220 card in it right now and am wanting to know why the computer just seems so sluggish on one of my games I play Warrock and it lags so bad I can barely get 20 FPS yet when I play AVA i get like 60+ and AVA has better graphics so it doesnt make sense to me why it cant play warrock. I have I believe 533MHz RAM and want to upgrade to the 667MHz maximum speed but how do I determine the ACTUAL speed of my RAM. Also would it be beneficial to upgrade the CPU to a Pentium Extreme 3.2GHz for like 40USD$? Is there a program I can use? Ive used CPUID and SIW and the bios and memtest and got all different speed ratings. (sighs) sorry for the long post I just want to understand why the computer is sluggish with these specs.

Hello,
My PC has been going through a few different issues recently. It all started about 3 weeks ago, when it started slowing down really bad (using 100% system memory according to Task Manager). I noticed that the installation of Zone Alarm Suite that I was using was using a lot more memory than the other programs. After running a virus scan and both Spy Bot and Adaware scans with no major issues, I tried uninstalling and re-installing Zone Alarm with no success. So I completely uninstalled ZA and installed Bit Defender 9. This seemed to stop the lag issues. However, soon after I found that I kept getting "exploit.html.codebase.exe" warnings in BD. Soon after getting these my wireless logitech trackball functionality has deteriorated (ie: initial left click isn't acknowledged, cannot drag cursor across multiple characters and some other issues). The battery level seems fine, so does connection with the hub. BTW, I think that I have successfully cleaned my PC of all "exploit.html.codebase.exe" infected files.???
Here is my HJT file:

And to add some additional pertinent information. When trying to perform a function such as a "left mouse click" on a tab or button it also often double clicks on single clicks. I have checked the mouse settings and all appears to be fine. It seems as if a virus has done some damage somewhere before being detected by my virus scanner.

Hello Lord Shamar and welcome to TSF,

Please print these instructions out for use in Safe Mode.

Before we begin, let's move HiJackThis to it's own folder; like c:\HJT. When we're done 'cleaning' off your system, we're going to 'flush' the temporary folders which, with HiJackThis in it's current location, we'll lose both the program and the backups it creates. These backups are important in case we need to restore any 'fixed' entry(s) later.
To do this:
Click My Computer, then C:\
Right click in the right-hand panel.
In the menu that opens, click New>Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder.
Rename it"HJT".

Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.

Double-click VundoFix.exe to extract the files

*This will create a VundoFix folder on your desktop.
*After the files are extracted, please reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs) if they exist:

Etea

Delete the following folder:

C:\Program Files\etea

*Still in safe mode open the VundoFix folder and doubleclick on KillVundo.bat
*You will first be presented with a warning and a list of forums to seek help at.
it should look like this

Have you done a SFC (System File Checker) you will need your xp cd.
Go to Start>Run, type sfc /scannow (NOTICE THE SPACE BETWEEN sfc and /). This scan will verify the integrity and replace any missing or corrupted files.

First of all, TrojanHunter is a usually a complementary product to a virus scanner, so check out a virus scanner (I just made a bunch of suggestions myself in a recent thread). And a firewall. TrojanHunter is good but without other scanners you're lucky you don't have other problems. (I.e. a simple solution is PC-cillin, or an example of a stand-alone virus scanner plus stand-alone firewall would be NOD32 + Outpost).

Second, try to keep Windows and Internet Explorer as up-to-date as possible (although it's probably best to update it after you fix these problems).
You do have one obvious thing to fix.

Close Internet Explorer (copy this info to Notepad or something to keep it in front of you), but stay connected to the internet. Open the Control Panel, Add/Remove. Remove any of these if they exist:

Active Alert
Internet Optimizer
ISTSvc
Sidefind
Slotchbar
Uninstall 180 Search Assistant
WSEM Update

If any of these exist on your computer, you can delete them (give them a quick check to see they aren't something you've installed intentionally, as there's always a slight chance of that):

C:\Program Files\180Solutions
C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer
C:\Program Files\ISTBar
C:\Program Files\ISTSvc

Hello rich_bru and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. Let's run a scan with a different scanner and see what it shows us.Download WinPFind2.zip and unzip it to your Desktop.

I recently formated my pc and installed XP. It was working fine for a couple days, after rebooting I noticed it took longer to load than usual. It finally makes it to the choose user screen where I only have the option to choose Administrator. Before it would just boot straight to the desktop. Sometimes it gets stuck on the choose administer screen when I click on Administer user. When it doesnt freeze on that screen it will load desktop, but act as though its the first time booting windows. Example: It asks if I want to take a tour of Windows each time and also when I click on Firefox it asks if I want to import settings from Explorer, I already went through that upon originally installing Firefox.

The pc still recognizes files Ive added since I formatted the hd.

It has XP sp1 I believe, possibly sp2 I'll have to check when I get home, and I had not installed any updates since installing XP.

I had just finished some windows updates when I tried to go to my computer. when I do, it will sit there with that little moving flashlight, searching for files for several minutes, and then everything works, it doesn't hang up unless I go to my computer. Also, I can't manually put in an internet address at the internet explorer address bar because it doesn't seem to react when I hit the go button. What should I do?

You could uninstall the update, but that would defeat the purpuse of an update. Could you post which update it was, that might help a bit. Thanks.

I have a new (less than 6mos) Mac Notebook.

I got an email from a friend the other day that had some pics he had taken of a car. Prior to this I've not had any problems whatsoever with my Notebook. I hadn't clicked on anything yet other than to open the email. The attached thumbnails seem to have trouble loading. I had a refresh a couple of times to get it to load. I'm clicked on at least one of the thumbnails but the pic didn't load so I satisfied myself just by looking at the thumbnail pics. Now, however, whenever I open Yahoo Mail, after a second or two, it bogs down and will not open any mail. If I open mail and immediately got to a folder and open, I can get a mail item to open, but if I pause for a second or two I get the little spinning "busy loading" icon and can't do anything more.

I checked the activity monitor to see if the CPU usage was spinning out of control but it was inconclusive. I'm still encountering the problem. Having survived an infection on my PC desktop, it worries me to allow whatever it's doing to complete it's task so I close Ymail immediately. Other than that, I am not encountering anything unusual about my Notebook's performance.

Anyone encounter this or have any insight into what might be going on?

Thanks for your valuable assistance!!

Can we get a little bit more information such as the Operating System Version, System RAM, CPU, and browser that you are using? Sometimes I get this problem and it turns out to be one of those revolving advertisement scripts taking a while to load or to connect. I notice this more especially when there are a lot of connections being made or data to be downloaded.

This then repeated the second time and so on. I managed to noticed few words that is something like: "...remove hardware safely... If this problem continue...(maybe)"

how long have you been having this problem?

have you performed any kind of "undesired activities"on your PC before the freezing occured?

what kind of firewall do you have[if any personal,non XP firewall]

i recommend ZONE ALARM free firewall.

as for the ANTIVIRUS tool i recomend NOD32.

try google for NOD32[currently the best] antimalware tool and try scanning your HARD DRIVE for viruses[and other malware]

deactivate any currently active antivirus tool before installing and running NOD32 trial verson.

this is my advice.

Hello everyone. My name is marco and I was wondering if someone could help me fix my moms computer. I think she has some nasty spyware or something on it because everytime I go to certain sites, the browser (internet explore) automatically closes with a "send error" message. Another thing it's been doing is like when I click a link, it randomly opens up a google search, which has nothing to do with what I just clicked. For example, when I got to this site and clicked on the Forums Tab, A new browser window opened with a google search on some college stuff, but like I said, each time it is a different search. This happens about every three links I click on or so, and is reaaallly anoying. Can anyone help me? Thank you very much ahead of time.

For the last week or so my computer has been acting extremelt funny. One day my comp just shutdown and displayed the "no operating system" on a black screen. So I did a factory restore with my official HP disc that were sent to me. Well everything went through just fine, but a day or so later it displayed the same message. So I did a diagnostics test on my comp and got the error message BIOSHD-2, and another time I got a error message of BIOSHD-8. So needless to say I've done quite a bit of restoring my comp, and it doesn't seem to be working. Also I noticed that when I try and let the computer install the updates from windows recommended updates it will get to about 32% and freeze. When I turn the comp off and back on because of that it says in both safe mode, and regular mode "updates failed reverting updates". Well it seems as if though the computer freezes when it does that too. So I figured that there was something wrong with my hard drive, so I bought another one. I hope the new hard drive takes care of this, but I'm wondering if there's anything else that might be wrong. Now I did get mad at my comp a couple of times, and turn it off when I freezes and the screen greys out. So yea!

Also I am using windows 7

A:HP computer acting funny!

Sounds like hard drive failure - including boot sector. Either that or the drive's circuitry is failing. Try swapping out the HDD as a first step to test. (remember to use an EXACT model drive! Most OEM makers are picky that way.) If a restoration and normal operation is successful at that point, problem solved - defective drive.

If you still get issues with a replacement drive, then it's time to call HP for repairs.

On a side note, most idiocies with laptops can be solved with a hard reset. To do that, unplug AC power, remove the battery, and let it sit for 24 hours. If it works fine, remember that trick. It's a really common problem with laptops.
If it doesn't resolve it, proceed with the above steps anyway, to begin diagnostics.

I had Avira on schedule to run every night and have never had a ny problems with it. I went to the avira site and they asked for a hijackthis log, but when I ran it it didnt save a log.. I don't know where to go from here, please let me know...thanks

I am getting strange messages from outlook. I think it may have something to do with syncronizing with my "Smart Phone". Can someone please help me figure out how to fix this? I was trying to change and save a task, I got the message "Could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid." I am also getting this message if I try to create a new task. Another message that I get when changing a task is "Please save the task order by clicking save task order on the Actions menu in the "Tasks" folder. The view must not be filtered or grouped for save task order to be available." When I get this message, I have to click OK. That is the only option available. The good news though is when I get this message and click OK, the task changes to what I wanted. The Pop-up is just irritating.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks

I have a windows 8 Toshiba Satilite laptop that is acting really weird. I am currently using my sister's laptop because of this. Anyway, Firstly, none of my internet browsers are opening up when I click on them. I have been clicking on them and waiting for a long time. Something similar happened to before, but it was only Chrome that wasn't opening. So back then. I downloaded "Adwcleaner" and I scanned my computer and I was able to open Chrome again. Now Adwcleaner won't open either and neither are my settings, where I can go into safe mode. Also, when I booted up my computer just now, I pressed all the F keys to see if I could get the special menu screens but nothing came up. So my laptop is basically useless. The only thing it can open up is one anti-virus program, Malwarebytes Anit-malware, which I scanned and it detected nothing. I don\t know what to do now. Help!

Lately my computer is acting funny...going really slow and some web pages are not loading. I can not for the life of me figure out what is wrong. I came here hoping that someone could possibly get my computer figured out and cleaned up a little bit possibly. Thanks in advance.

the first thing to do is run "disc cleanup" ... start > all programs > accessories > system tools > disc cleanup... then defrag (same place)
