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.)

having had this yoga700 14 for a year ,a nd today it is dead , no power at all , the  the LED indicator light is not on even with the adapter plug in . ONE year , this is the shotest life laptap that I have ever own. And I have had it sent to Lenovo's depot center four times in this one year . I can only say that their skill is terrible , every time I received my computer from the cemter , my computer would have some new ugly scratches and some sign and distorting edge which was apparently caused by improper disassembly operations. A month ago the computer could not boot up , and it was sent in again and they replaced the motherboard . in just a month, it completely  dies now ,  it does not have power at all, the power led indicator does not turn on at all , even if I have tried several confirmed working adapters. So you can see how poor their quality is   warranty is expired now , I m really disappointed with this first lenovo product I owned  , it was the first and it would be the last lenovo product in my life.

I have a valid HP onsite warranty that is valid for 3 more months. The keyboard on my laptop malfunctioned 5 days ago.HP refuses to send a technician to my house to replace the keyboard. They want me to send the computer to them. I specifically paid for an onsite warranty. Not a warranty to ship the computer to them. They are willing to ship me the keyboard but not send a person to install the keyboard. They would rather that I install the keyboard and not their technicians which they claim do not have the skills to do this.Give me a break......what ype of terrible service is this.  Sell me an on site warranty and then refuse to honor it.The gentleman I have been in contact with at HP is very nice but his hands are tied by cororate greed and deception.When HP finally agreed (4 days later and lots of calls) to ship me the keybaord it was supposed to come overnight.  Another lie, I just received an email that states the part will not be here for 5 days.  HP is obviously able to get away with this. I am surprised that there is not a class action lawsuit against HP for their deceptive sales technics. The sales people sell you an onsite warranty and HP refuses to honor it. So if anyone reading this is considering an on site warranty, don't waste your money, they are not worth the paper they are printed on.

I am extremely disappointed at Lenovo's manufacturing quality and its customer service. This is my first Lenovo laptop I ever bought, and it may be the last depending on a satisfactory resolution to my problem.On 01/31/2017, I reported that a Lenovo Flex3 exhibited a burning smell accompany by periodic electrical sparks I saw from the back of the computer while charging the battery. I immediately pull the plug out of the computer, but the problem persisted for another 2 hours until the battery was apparently completely discharged. For fear of fire, I took the computer to work afraid of losing my home to electrical fire (I could no longer trust that computer).More disappointing were the false promises I received from customer service saying that my case will be escalated, and I should receive a call within 3 days for further instructions. Three business days passed without any response from Lenovo, which I found unprofessional considering the gravity of the situation.On the fourth day I called customer services again, and I heard the exactly same story that my case has been escalated, and that I should receive a phone call within 24 hours (broken record). I have seen other complains in this forum concerning bad services that took up to four months for a satisfactory resolution. I sincerely hope that my case does not take that much time; otherwise, I will present a complaint to the Better Business Bureau.I will give an update on the customer service performance as soon as I hav...

I would like to know if onsite repair is applicable for liquid damage. I know the repairs for spill damage are chargeable, but will a technician arrive to my place as i have an onsite warranty. 

A:Onsite Warranty for spill damage

Every country has different rules for repairs, so you need to check locally, but depot is generally best for any sort of spill damage.  It is impossible to know what parts were damaged until the machine is taken apart. The technician wouldn't know what parts to bring, so he or she would need to guess.

Dell India support  say it is due to usage. Please note laptop is meant to be use and not to keep on showcase. If your hinges broken with in 6 month, do you think next time the same user will ever look for a Dell laptop.
Either improve your quality in India or replaced your poor quality spare. Or else simple go away from India.

My son was given a laptop for his birthday last year and it has a cracked hinge. 
After much research I've learned that this is a very common problem in this laptop. We called customer care center 2 different times and stayed on the phone for at least an hour each time. We were told a box would be sent out for repair. His laptop was still under the 1yr warranty at this time. 
Today, we called again to get some answers and they have no record of us calling. (Surprise, surprise!) We still have not received any return box and his warranty has now, of course, expired. 
I will never purchase another Dell product again in my life! Also I'll warn everyone I know to stay far away from your products. 

A 16 yr old kid has a "new" computer that he uses a stack of books to prop the screen to use his $400 laptop! (because of a cheap screws and plastic casing)

hello, you probably get this all the time, but some pictures i download from the net are small, then when i want to blow them up to a viewable size, they are way too blurry. if i wan to print them out, will they still be blurry, and if so, are there any really good programs that would create a sharper, more focused picture.
 

A:poor quality

Most photos on the Internet are optimized to be as small a number as possible of bytes of information and still look acceptable on your monitor.

The reason is to minimize download times for web pages. So most pictures from the web are not suitable for enlarging or printing.

You can right click a picture and click on properties to see how many KB the picture is before you even download it. By experimenting you can up with a number you feel will enlarge enough for your purposes and make acceptable prints.

I include many pictures from the web in greeting cards I create. As long as you keep them small they can be fine for that purpose.

I had a large music collection on my old system (XP sp2). After a motherboard death, I pulled the hard drive and installed it as a slave in my new system. (Presario SR1724NX).
The sound quality is very poor. Sounds echo, and some of the vocal tracks are almost inaudible.
I have tried Media Player 10 and RealPlayer and both sound alike.
I am thinking the Sound Card is bad, but before I buy a new one I am hoping someone will have some suggestions.
Also recommendations for a good sound card and speakers are welcome. I don't have a "Golden Ear", but I would like it to sound good.

I really hope someone here can offer me some help with this!

I've built a small htpc with a HauupaugePVR 500 Tunerand connected it (via my motherboards HDMI) to a Sony 40w4500 LCD.

The tuner is connected to my SAGAM set top box via a SCART to phono adaptor with s-video. There's no other way to connect the two together as my stb only has the following connections,
Digital tv broadcasts via a cable Sagam stb with the following connections,
Audio - S/PDIF, Right and Left audio connectors.
Video - HDMI connector, Y, Pb and Pr?
The only other connections available are 2 Scart sockets one labeled TV and the other VCR.

I've got a s-video lead plugged into the tuner card and the end of it plugged into the adaptor and the then the adaptor into the stb tv SCART socket.

With all this done I'm geting a pictures but is pretty bad. Quite fuzzy with faceting and stripy looking. When I use the phono video input it improves but it's still not a patch on simply connecting the cable box straight to the tv via scart.

Could someone tell me why my picture is so poor? Surely it's not supposed to be like this? The resolution I'm using is 1280x720 and I'm running Vista Ultimate. Could it be that the signal from my cable supplier is digital or something?

Any help greatly appreciated.

My laptop has excellent quality audio on cd's, streaming videos, games, and everything else EXCEPT DVD's. It used to play the sound normally but suddenly it started to skip, echo and sounds 'tinny'. The video on the DVD's still plays fine, so it is just the audio that seems to be messed up. Like I say, the audio on everything else still works absolutely fine.
I contacted Acer about the problem and they said I should just reset the laptop and start over, but since most of the programs on the laptop were put on at the factory (including windows) if I reset it then I won't have the disks to put all the programs back on. Any help would be much appreciated.

I know absolutely nothing about Audio. I know that my speaker set up has a subwoofer. That it connects to the back of my computer through a black, green and orange 3-way spliced cable. I know I took the computer apart to move it to a new case and that's when it started. I use the on board sound card to an ASUS A8N32 SLI board with the proper sound driver.

The assistance feature for the less informed, like myself, says there's something wrong with my green cable. There doesn't seem to be any tears or weak connections.

As for the problem itself. Sound is mildly distorted. There's severe bass tones? where there shouldn't be. Half of the sounds from 3d games like Oblivion, do not register.
 

A:Poor quality Audio

You should have a Realtek Aux console. Start/Programs/Realtek===> some drop down menu. In there you can set-up your speakers for 2.1, 3.1, 5.1 etc. also there should be a graphics equalizer where you can set base or there can be a tab just for setting how much sub-woofer (volume and cross-over frequency) I set my cross-over at 60Hz.

You need to tell it how many speakers you have, then set your sub-woofer and you should be ok.

I've had the P50 now for about two months and the touchpad and it's buttons are really poor quality. So bad indeed that they are also unusable. The touchpad seems to get triggered by the slighest touch, even if I have the 'disabled while typing' set and am typing away (which means while I am typing the mouse pointer will have a mind of its own, jumping all over the place, even selecting large block of text and overwriting it while I'm typing.) And then when I actually want to use the touchpad, it seem to take mutiple 'taps' before it registers, and the left mouse button, when usin git for drag and drop is 'hit-and-miss'  it either takes two or three attempts befor eit actually selects the object under the cursor, and half the time it stops working half way thorugh the drag-and-drop, meaning files get dropped where they shouldn't. It's come to the point where I use the menu cut-paste, which is inconvienient., and will have to go shopping for an external keyboard and touchpad. This is not what I've come to expect from a Lenovo Thinkpad ... this is the 4th Lenovo model I've owned (since back when they were IBM) and this laptop is by far the worst in terms of build quality. ------- Note: I am running RHEL 7.3, not Windows and have no intention of loading Windows on anything I own. But I've been using Redhat on all my Lenovo laptops, and had little to ni issues with them running it to this point.

I downgraded from Vista to XP a couple months ago, but haven't had the oppurtunity to play with my webcam/audio feature until now. I'm on an Acer Aspire 5630 Laptop, with a built in cam and mic.

I had a great audio quality on Vista. Now suddenly my audio quality is very poor... not so much in the fact that it doesn't sound good, but that you can barely hear it.

Again, it worked great on Vista.

Now I've tried playing with all the settings... I've spent a lot of time tweaking things, but nothing fixes it. I think it may have something to do with the gay RealTek Audio Manager (which I'd like to get rid of, but don't know how). My audio quality is just very, very muffled and low-toned.

In Master Volume, I am using advanced settings and I have everything turned up full blast. In the mic's advanced settings, Bass and Treble are both set to as low as possible, and it doesn't allow me to move them or change them.
As for drivers, according to driveragent.com, these are the only drivers which are out of date or missing:

Now, on media centre in the setup, it plays a clip to set your monitor up and the quality is perfect. However, when I play a dvd directly from the dvd player or HDD,.. the quality is degraded to say the least.

I've downloaded my graphics drivers and various codecs, divx, xdvd, and a few others but it doesnt seem to have made any difference.

Does anyone know why this may be?

Thank you.

When I connect my CB3-111 to my Sony bluetooth speaker  with WI-Fi the sound quality is pretty unbearabely poor. I know it's not the speaker because that sounds great when streaming off my smart phone. Any ideas why??

Sounds like it could be a setting in Chrome OS. I read on another forum users reporting that turning off Ok Google helped. Can you try this and see if it helps?
 

Open Google Chrome.
In the top right corner, click the Chrome menu  > Settings.
In the "Search" section, check Enable "Ok Google" to start a voice search. To turn Ok Google off, uncheck this box.
If you're on a Chromebook, you may be asked to turn on the Voice & Audio Activity setting.
Under Enable "Ok Google" to start a voice search, you'll see where you can use "Ok Google." In Chrome, it's usually on google.com or a new tab. On some Chromebooks, you can say "Ok Google" from any page if your screen is on and unlocked.

I have an HP 2000-2D19WM that I bought five days ago. It is running on windows 8 and has all the drivers updated. The problem experienced is that it produces very poor quality of sound whether I use speakers or headphones. I tried to tweak by using the enhancement options but to no avail. The sound may be louder but the quality below par. Please I need help.

A:Poor sound quality

Hello @Shelomoh, Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! I see that your notebook computer is producing a poor quality sound, and I would be happy to help you!  To improve the quality of sound on your computer, I recommend following this document on No Sound from Speakers (Windows 8). This should help with the playback on your system. In addition, you can also follow @SuperMario1's thread on Troubleshooting Guide: Audio does not Work after a Certain Period of Time. This guide should help with your notebook's audio output in regards to a recent Windows Update. For more assistance, I will need to know: If your computer has completed all of its important Windows Updates.If you have updated your HP drivers using the HP Support Assistant.The format of music files you are playing, and the program you are playing them on.If this is an on-going, or recent issue.If using headphones produces the same poor quality.  Please re-post with the results of your troubleshooting, as well as the requested information above. I look forward to your reply!Regards

I just bought a Dell 1721 laptop the audio driver is SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC... Im assuming that means that its built into the motherboard... I used to be quite happy with the way everything sounded till I bought some SE210's by Shure... Now it does not sound very good... I have plugged the headphones into my brothers iMac and they sound great... What can I do to make the audio sound better and more alive... It sounds very flat and feels like low on power... At low volume levels there is no bass... I turn up the bass on wmp11 and all it does is almost mute the highs when the bass hits... Leads me to think there is not enough power going to the jack to support both.... I can turn it up quite loud and the bass sounds great if i wanted to go deaf in a week but the rest is still lifeless.... I am hoping there is some settings that need adjusting since i dont think i can install anything internally and dont know of any other fixes... (wanting better graphics also but dont think i can change that)

A:Poor sound quality...

Yes you are right..its inbuilt into the motherboard. All laptops are like that. You could try and external soundcard or a gadget from Creative using its crystallizer software. Heres the link:

Creative Xmod

Hope that helps. Says its built to improve onboard sound like your problem
