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.)

Hey, my ThinkPad X1 Extreme was working quite well for the last few months until today when the battery suddenly dropped to 0% (while it was plugged in) since then I've been unable to charge it back up again it just stays at 0% no matter how long you wait. I've tried a few things like restarting the device (duh), holding the "reset" button thingy on the bottom of the device for several seconds (I've read that somewhere here on the forums) while powered off/unplugged, etc. Also here is what upower says about the battery, interesting find: It doesn't seem to draw power (if I read that correctly) Device: /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0

Does anyone have Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon running on the latest variant of the Thinkpad X1 Extreme? I currently run various flavours of Linux as virtual machines under Parallels Desktop on an aged Macbook Pro, but I want to break out of the Apple walled garden and run Linux natively as my OS of choice. At the moment my likely choice of new laptop is this year's model of X1 Extreme - sometimes called the X1 Extreme Gen2 I really like Mint, but I'm wary of buying the laptop without having first had it confirmed that Mint will run on it without problems.  I know the 'old' X1 Extreme is certified for Linux where it is purchased as a Linux system, but I haven't seen anything about the later version being similarly certified. Does anyone have any experience of attempting a Mint installation on this system? Thanks, Mike

I have a lenovo x240 with no internal battery and 2 external batteries. When i got it, everything was alright, but after some time, my laptop coulnd't power on from just the battery, he needed an ac adapter od he would report 190 critical battery error. I kinda fixed this issue by not shuting the laptop down if i intended on unplugging it, but putting it in sleep mode, which from he can wake up even with no ac power. One night i left my laptop unplugged, battery connected and in sleep mode the entire night. When i woke up, the laptop had 0 charge in it and couldn't wake from sleep. No leds, no beeps, nothing. Plugged it back in- it powers on normally. The problem is, the laptop no longer sees any of my 2 batteries, unless its on the charger, the laptop acts as if there is no power at all. He doesnt react to the power button, so no leds, no beeps, no bios flashscreens- nothing. On charger it still works perfectly normal.

I just received my new Thinkpad Extreme laptop with 4k screen a few days ago. I'm formerly a Macbook Pro user and I love the Thinkpad Extreme. However, I'm shocked to see that my real-world battery life usage is 4hrs and 40mins. Especially when they advertise the battery life to be 14 hrs! My power mode is set to "Better Battery", screen brightness at about 80% and I'm the only doing web browsing and some youtube videos. Not even video rendering or editing. This is a massive deal-breaker for me. I was hopping for about 6 hours at least. Can any other Thinkpad Extreme user with 4k monitor advise if this is normal? How much battery life do you get? I checked with support but they refuse to tell me what the average battery life I should be expecting and just say that battery life will vary with usage. I found this review online which says they got 6 hours 7mins of continuous wifi web surfing: https://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/lenovo-thinkpad-x1-extreme Again, I feel quite a let down because the the specs say up to 14 hours. I was expecting even at half of that I was hoping to get about 7 hours. But about 4+ hours is really bad - its almost the same as my 7 year old Macbook Pro which I switched from.

Hi all, It has been about a month since I received the new X1 Extreme, and it has been quite good so far, but today, for some unknown reason, I've run into some apparent battery issues. I charged my computer overnight yesterday, and when I tried using it in class today, it wouldn't start. The red light on the ThinkPad logo wasn't flashing at all, so something was off. I tried turning it on many times, but nothing happened.  When I came home, I plugged it in and it allowed me to turn it on, but it was stuck at 46% charge and wouldn't move (even after an hour - a period of time sufficient to charge the computer up to 80%). Then, as I was writing this post, a loud 2 bell ringing sound came on and the computer shut down. When I started it up again (connected to the AC adapter), the Lenovo Vantage battery icon displayed an "X" and the Windows battery appeared empty. I made sure to back up everything and updated BIOS and other drivers just in case, but nothing seemed to work. If I disconnect the AC adapter, the computer immediately dies. Like this, the computer is no longer useful to me since I need it on the go.  I'll contact Lenovo support once my schedule frees up a bit, but if this has happened before and you've found a solution, I'd like to get this back to normal as soon as possible. Thanks,  Reilly

Linux mint is comparatively easier to use, as it's GUI is similar to Windows. On the other hand, Ubuntu or Fedora look a bit different, but the functions are basically the same.

It will be a good idea to take a backup before installation.

The computer battery is going down while it is connected to power supply. I have been noticing this for the last 3 weeks. It usually drops 4% to 6% a week.Now the computer is configured to not charge until reach a certain level to save battery life, for that reason I can notice the battery going down and staying this way. By the way, other problem that may be related is that it was not charging even before I set the configuration for the battery threshold, meaning that before was configured to charge always. I installed Lenovo Vantage, changed the configuration and was still not able to see it charging until I turned off the compute, let it off for a certain time and then connected to power supply.

Not a big Linux user, albeit sometimes if you use upper case with any log in this can be a problem. The only thing I can really recommend is to reinstall and make sure that you write down both the user name and the password down before entering into the OS; this way you will hopefully have no further problems.

Hi,

I don't think you can edit the repositories directly, although I may be wrong. I suggest changing your software sources to the main server, or another mirror, and then trying:


Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
If this doesn't solve the problem, check to see whether Synaptic Package Manager is open elsewhere, and close it before running these commands.

Linux Mint (17) QIANA now released

I Am trying this in a VM now before testing on a REAL machine. I'm looking for good things with this release --it's a LTS (Long Term support) release which will be supported until 2019.

This is the sort of things I've been looking for -- I tend to use Linux as an everyday desktop and like the idea of Long term release support -- one of the main reasons I chose OPENSUSE over a lot of other ones - but I do prefer a debian based system over an RPM based one like SUSE even though I haven't had too many complaints with it.

(I recommend you use the LEGAL torrent in their links - it's a lot faster than some of the servers until the mirrors get loaded up with the new release).

Hi!

I installed Linux Mint on my external HDD. Worked fine. Booted Linux when external HDD was plugged in, Win7 when not. Unfortunately at one point Linux Mint updated its kernel headers and I suppose it made an update to Grub with this. => no boot to Win7 although all data was still there.
I tried a Win7 recovery cd image via USB-Stick (no cd drive available) => no windows found.
I tried bootrec, bootsect, but that did not help ("element not found").
There was a drive E: with 100mb which held a /boot folder.
C: (with win7 on it) did not.
I tried diskpart for activating partitions etc.
Nothing worked.
Someone suggested "sudo update-grub" in linux mint (still worked if plugged in). That one found windows and it looked like it was making an entry for it (beneath diverse linux mint options).
Next restart brought only a grub-console, but no boot options. => no linux either now.
I restartet using USB-Win7 recovery. Now the 100mb partition is gone (I suppose thats ok, since I sat it to hidden+boot in gparted), all the drive letters are wildly assigned in diskpart and I do not know what to do now.

Thx for any help, Tommy

Linux has obviously grabbed complete control over your boot process. If you are going to fix this I have a feeling you'll have more luck on the linux forums than here.

I have a computer dual booted with Linux Mint and Windows 7 Pro x64.

Since I am fed up with Microsoft I am learning to use Linux. Linux comes with Firefox as its default browser.

When I got the system connected to the net with Wi-Fi the browser worked fine for about an hour and then slowed down considerably.

When I try to load Firefox the activity circle will go round and round for a very long time. Sometimes it loads Firefox and then the activity circle goes round and round for a very long time. Other times the browser will time out and not even load.

Then when the browser loads and I try to go to any site the activity circle goes round and round for a long time and sometimes the site loads and sometimes it doesn't, and it will time out. When the site does load the activity circle goes round and round for a very long time.

I thought something was wrong with the computer so I shut down Linux, booted to W7 and everything worked fine so it has to be a problem in Firefox.

Can anyone tell me what has happened to this browser. Thanks.

A:Add XP to PC running Linux Mint with UEFI

Cool. Please keep in mind that Windows XP will overwrite GRUB. As such, you will lose access to Linux Mint, and will need to re-install GRUB using a Linux Mint live-flashdrive (or live-DVD).
 
Maybe it does not like UEFI or ext4?

In Linux Mint type:
sudo parted -l
This will show information about your harddrive, most importantly what kind of partition table you're using. Based on your comment about UEFI, I would presume you're using a GPT table, which Windows XP doesn't support. Nore does Windows XP support UEFI.

Last night windows boot manager just disapeared. It doesn't show up anywhere on BIOS. Only Uefi built in Shell and a sata option that used to boot to Linux mint till today, Just now.
