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.

A:Can I Upgrade Lenovo G400s Processor ?

Hi HRIDOY007,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking on your systemboard shows PN 90003110 VILG2 MB UMA HM70. It appears similar to this discussion:
 
HM70 Express Chipset. This Motherboard chipset only supports limited number of processor  http://ark.intel.com/products/67419/Intel-BD82HM70-PCH#@compatibility 
 
If the machine comes with a Intel HM70 Express chipset then the CPU upgrade is only limited to the Intel Celeron/Pentium series.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.

Ok, so, about a year ago I bought for my GF's birthday a G400s, and oh boy, if I knew it would be one of my worst purchases ever made, I swear to the seven heavens that I would just give the money to the charity... So the problems started with the Samsung HDD that came with the notebook, it stopped working in 3 months after the purchase, then after a long battle with Lenovo Brazil (witch by the way, is one of the worse company that I had the displeasure of ever getting to speak with their Customer support), I gave up and bought a new HDD and changed it by myself. Then again, the notebook made a favor of frying the HDD... Then after that I changed again, and guess what? The notebook won't boot up again!!!

Hi iyyappan_3,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
First make sure that the Audio driver and the dolby will be in sync.
Open Device Manager 
    Uninstall the Audio Device Under Sound and gaming controllers / Make sure to place a check in the Delete driver software prompt.
           
Now make sure you don't have any dolby components
    Proceed to Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall a Program
                     Uninstall all Dolby Related programs
                             Restart if Prompted
Now install this software driver
 
 https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/audio142w81.exe
When you install this software it will show you a directory path whre it will extract, Make sure to Remember the path
 
This next xtep is important

Open the directory path where the Audio driver installer extracted the Audio driver.

Check all the folders inside it and find the Dolby Installers, Install the Dolby either Advanced audio or Digital plus.
 
ANd you should now get your dolby back
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

hi gapgrg,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried Pressing the novo menue and try accessing the recovery.
   You might still be able to put back the original os back and start with the downgrade again.
 
You can also try booting from the DVD / CD or USB but you have to check if these settings in the BIOS are met.
 
 
Got to Exit Tab and Change OS Optimized Default to Other OS
 
  Save and exit the boot into BIOs again
  Under Boot Tab
          Change Boot mode to Legacy
           USB Boot should be enabled
    Under Security
          Secure Boot Has to Be disabled
          
Once All are Set Make sure to save all changed by hitting F10 and enter for Yes
    After Hitting enter It will Restart and You have to keep on tapping F12
       this should pull up the Boot Menu letting you select where to boot. You should have now your USB Stick as an Option or DVD/CD. Try to boot from those
 
Hope this helps
Let me know your findings

Hello Everyone,

This is my 1st thread, so i'm naive about the categories under which the issue i'm facing falls. I've a jar file which contains a very simple program of displaying "Hello" message in the console.I've pasted the code at the end of this thread.I want to run this jar file as a windows service.This service gets started without any hiccup,However,It simply wouldn't start the service.

I've tried running this service as using NET and Sc command.But in vain.Below is the error i'm facing

C:\Windows\system32>sc start MajaService
[SC] StartService FAILED with error 193.

Further, as a workaround I created a .bat file for executing this .jar file and again tried creating a window service for this .bat file,In this event i get the followingh error:

[SC] StartService FAILED 1053:

The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.


and below is my program:

A:Unable to start .jar file as a window service

A few things I've noted on that:

First of all, to run a program in Windows, you need an EXE, not a jar. EXEs are the only really executable things on Windows, so I guess you need to compile your program first (I don't do any myself java, so can't help very much with it).

Second, programs need an special "contract" to work as a service. Your program, in addition to do its normal work, needs to call and attend to some predefined Windows APIs that interact directly with the service controller, to do things such as responding to start/stop/pause events and to report its current status. Your program simply prints a string to the console regularly and fails to do such protocol, so it will never be recognized directly as a service.
There is a workaround however. MS created a small executable called "instsrv" that allows any program to run as a service (in fact, it does all the service's API calls and thens runs your program). Here's the details on how to do it: How To Create a User-Defined Service. I've done that myself a few times on my work and works good enough.

Most important, it seems that you're not understanding correctly how a service works. A service is meant to be a background process, something that runs all the time totally unattended without intervention or any input or output. What you want just violates that principle, because services don't show a console or any kind of window for the matter. Additionally, starting with Win Vista/2008, t... Read more

Had this error on a user's pc. Researched it here on the forum.
Found another thread with someone suggesting to use the following command to get it going:
Start->run..then type the following -> "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane"

This worked! The other thread has since been closed, but I wanted to reply and say WHY my users outlook suddenly started throwing out this error, because no one on the other thread was able to.

Turns out that my user had "accidentally" dragged their personal folder (containing 1000's of emails) into the "outbox".
Since the "outbox" folder is one to be used while an email is in the sending phase, it basically just shut down and wouldn't open for anything.

Luckily the command was able to get Outlook open and I was able to investigate what the user did to cause it.

Hope this info can help someone else.

Hi,
Thanks for all the help. I want to make my shorcuts start programs and windows (In WIndows Xp Pro SP3) at a certain position and with a certain size.

For instance I want to open Excell at position 20,30 (x,y) with a window size of 750 x 200, or maybe a internet explorer window at position 129, 357 with a window size of 562 x 397.

I gave the odd numbers in the example so that people responding will understand that I want CUSTOM SIZES. I know how to set the shortcuts to start maximized and minimized and also window tiling. That's not what I'm talking about. Does anyone know of shortcut switch that I can use?

For instance in some games if you want to start the game with cheats enabled, you put "-devmode" after the directory path in the "target" box of the shortcut properties.

Is there any other way?

There is an awesome program called "Montage3"

which I use, but isn't exactly what I'm looking for. Please help out.

Recently got a copy of Window XP Prof (Upgrade version). Upgraded my computer from Window ME to XP. Everything was alright except the Norton Anti-virus and the Firewall. I, therefore, uninstall Window XP. The problems even worse. Window ME won't work probably, so I reformated HD and reinstalled from Window 95 to ME. Then reinstalled Window XP, in halfway it couldn't find the following files:
sfcfiles.dll
wmploc.dll
sysmonW.chm
wbdbase.sve
xptht67d.jpg

and so have to uninstall it again. Anyone know what causing this? The installation disk seem fine (no scatch), I copy the above-mention files to another disk, it still say couldn't find the files. Anyone please help. Thank you heaps.

Hi All,

I am running Windows Vista Home edition and have Mozilla and Windows IE 8.0 installed. Whenever I start up the computer and turn on Mozilla, after a few minutes IE opens a window saying that it is unable to open the window "Favorit". It doesn't conect to the internet, even though it should be able to. This happened before and after I installed IE 8. I've run Symantec Virus Scan with 0 results. I've posted this before, but nobody has been able to fix the problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

SteveG297

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu. The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate. Here's a picture of the problem:I did already try:Restarting the PC.Doing scannow, DISM, and scannow again.Fixing Registry errors with CCleaner.Updating BIOS and drivers. What can I do to fix the problem?

 Lenovo G570Model 4334 Hi Whenever i switch on my laptop it stays on the Lenovo start up screen for about 30 seconds, and then powers off. During the 30 seconds the laptop fans runs louder than usual but nothing else happens. Ocassionally it does get past that stage but then takes a long time on the 'starting windows' screen. I've used the onekey recovery to return it to my backup and even returned it to the factory settings but the problem persists. I'm unsure of what to next and how the problem can be solved. Any Suggestions? Thanks.

A:Lenovo G570 - Stays on Lenovo start up screen, then powers off

try to load safe mode when you see lenovo logo at start-up. ( f8 )if it works, press f8 again to load "last known good configuration"otherwise, check your ram sticks ( remove/replace/swap ) and check if your hdd is working properly.do you have any heating issue by the way? did you make changes recently?
