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.)

I purchased a pair of Yoga Books this past week for my wife and myself, and the only major let down for me so far, is the inability to wake the device by any other means than pressing the power button.  Is it possible to add tap to wake, or wake by activity on the keyboard?  I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing we had this option.

Two questions:1. Is there a Documentation on the BIOS options (I'm specifically interested in the options in the Android category)? 2. Does the Yoga Book have a removable CMOS battery, or any other way to reset the BIOS?

Silly question, but... I love this app and came as a stock app with my Yoga Book. However, it is not listed in my apps on google play and when looking for it, it comes upd with a price tag on it. In case something goes wrong how can I get it back? If I back up my Yoga Book, will I be able to restore it?

Hi there, This problem has happened several times now, and can't find any solution so time to report it.Our Lenovo Book YB1-X90F is about 3 months old, and has been updated to Android 7.1.1 (security patch 1st August 2017), and recently we have had several instances of Apps seemingly open themselves when the Book is not in use. And by "not in use" I mean it's been closed, sitting on a chair, connected to power, not being used at all for hours. A week ago we heard strange noises in the room, and tracked them down to the Yoga Book, and when we opened the Book we found Youtube App open, playing some video of some baby crying. Closed the Youtube app and found several other apps were open, apps we rarely or never use. Chrome was also open with many, many tabs showing pages we had never accessed, and History showed they opened when we were not using it.  Today we opened the Yoga Book and some new App we had not seen before was filling the screen. We dismissed it and then found the Google Play store was open, showing the page for this new App. And after closing the Play store app, and looking at task switcher, I found that Google Maps was open showing central america (I live in UK and have never looked at this region on Google Maps), Google Sheets was open (we don't use Sheets), Note Saver was open with lots of random squiggles and lines drawn on the page. There is no-one else in the house, so something is causing these apps to load on their own. Severa... Read more

So, my husband bought me a Lenovo Yoga Book last year for Christmas. I like it. I think it's cool to be able to draw on the paper (which is what I do traditionally) and have it show up digitized on the screen. I was able to do a couple of cool projects sketches on it, but I haven't used it to it's full potential I believe, so I put it down for a while. Then, I started to research different drawing apps, seeing all the amazing artwork that people were creating in these different apps and stuff, and it got me excited about going back to drawing on my Yoga Book. So, I went to try to draw in ArtRage, and when I would try to draw on the Wacom tablet with my pen, nothing would show up. However, when I would draw on the screen with my finger, everything showed just fine. I tried to update it several times, I tried starting it over, I tried using a different drawing app; NOTHING. The only time the pen would work on the Wacom Tablet is in Notesaver. Even if I had ArtRage open, anything that I try to write on the tablet will only come up in Notesaver. I wasn't trying to just factory reset it right off so I called technical support to see if there was anything that they would be able to do to fix it without me having to factory reset it.So, I called tech support and they told me that I would have to pay a fee of $40 to be escalated to their software support. So I paid the $40, and within 3 MINUTES  of speaking to me, the tech tells me to just factory reset it. I was LIVID. Like, th... Read more

Hi guys My tiny dog climbed up on my Yoga 2 while I wasnt looking. He put his paws on the keyboard and now my touchscreen has stopped working. I have tried all the usual steps: a restart, fn + F10. There are no drivers for this thing listed on the Lenovo Website. I am tempted to do a factory reset. I am a little confused why it stopped working at all, but I am partially disabled and I really miss using the touchscreen.Can anyone help me with this who is very familar with Android -based OS?

Hi,
 
I have newfolder.exe virus in external drive of my android phone. It doesn't allow me to delete any data on it. Whatever I delete, reappears again.
 
I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed on my Windows 7 machine. As soon I connect my phone to USB mass storage it detects and delete it. But then again appears if I disconnect from PC.
 
I am able to open task manager,registry editor etc. (I read generally this virus doesn't allow to open these things.) I am not able to see any autorun.inf file on that external drive. I tried to format the drive two-three times. On PC it shows like drive is empty, but as soon as I connect it my phone all data reappears. That microsd card is 7 GB and 5GB is occupied. Tried to scan the android using avg and avast scanner available from Google Play Store.
 
Any thing else I need to do. Not able to figure out how to solve this issue.
 
Thanks,
Jay

I've got a weird one that I can't seem to solve.

I have a Windows 10 Home desktop with a permanently attached external USB HD.

The internal drives are share from with everyone privileges at a folder level and a drive level (for testing). Homegroup is turned off completely.

From a Windows 10 machine I can access all shares without issue. Read and write files.

From any non Windows machine I can access the internal drive (c including the public folder, but not the external drive. The shares are seen, but trying to connect produces an unknown error.

I've tried replacing permissions on the external drive at the root level and replacing them on all child objects with no change. As far as I can tell the everyone read and write permission essentially removes security, so I don't think it's a username and password issue.

I have no meaningful error messages from android or linux, but have not checked windows.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi! Thank you for writing in. You need to consider the hardware compatibility of a Windows computer to an Android OS. Basic functionality of the wifi, keyboard, bluetooth etc. might not work because of driver incompatibility.

I like my yoga book but just lost my real pen and for the life of me cannot find any replacement anywhere .  Anyone knows if or when it would be once more available? Reached out to lenovo 3 times and no one seems to know anything.  Clearly they stopped it.  Without it the yoga book is useless and as it is only a few months old I am disappointed. If there are alternative to allow for both usage  (screen and paper) let me know. Thanks!

I've looked at the problems concerning the pen on the forums here and none of them seem to pertain to my problem specifically so I figured I would go ahead and ask. I have a Lenovo Yoga Book (the 64GB version). I reinstalled Windows 10 because it was locked out due to bitlocker, the Halo Keyboard wouldn't switch to the sketch pad mode so I reinstalled the drivers for that per the official instructions by Lenovo, and now the pen only interacts with the very top left hand corner of the screen no matter where I use the pen. I'd really like to start drawing again!Thanks in advance for any help I might receive!

Hey all,

I bought myself a new external hard drive today called My Book by Western Digital with a 1 terabyte capacity.

I connected it to laptop and it wasn't showing up under My Computer so I went on their site for support. There it said that the HD is set up for macs with "HFS+ Journaled formatting" and that it first had to be formatted for Windows. So I followed their guidelines** and started formatting it in NTFS as suggested by them.

Now the HD has been formatting since about 2.30 - 3 h and it is still formatted only 18%. I don't think this is normal, is it? Does this mean my HD is faulty or did I do something wrong?

Thank you very much for your help,

No magic bullet I m afraid. A few things to check:-

Do any usb devices work ?

Do the drive configure ok - on a another PC

Bear in mind that detection on some USB devices - can take a while, - this may be worse on a older or slower computer.

I would give the computer a good clean with CC cleaner - and malware bytes - both free downloads

maybe try a fresh os install as Last resort

Hi, My first post here

I really need some help I purchased a new WD My Book 4tb and have all my videos and pictures on this drive - I have always disconnected the drive properly but tonight when I connected to the laptop I get the following message;



I cant access the drive to see if any of the files are there or not

You've already messed up by keeping only 1 copy of important files :/

Is H the typical drive letter designation for that drive? I assume it is what you expected since you tried to open it. Can you take a screenshot of what Disk Management looks like with the drive on and connected?

Have you tried a different USB cable or tried it on a different computer?

I typed most of this up already, and it disappeared, so please forgive me if I inadvertently double post.

My Western Digital My Book external HDD is acting up. When I plug in the power cable, the light on the front of the unit blinks very faintly and very slowly. If i push the power button on the back, the light will flash once at normal intensity, then go back to blinking faintly. My computer does not recognize the HDD.

When this thing was working properly, the light stayed lit at normal intensity the entire time it was plugged in, IIRC. For sure it was not nearly so faint as it is now. Before it stopped working at all, it was having this problem intermittently. Because I was able to make it work by repositioning the power cable, I assumed that was where the problem was, but I have since purchased a new OEM power cable and that did not solve the problem.

I don't know if this is related or not, so I'm including it just in case. I own a tablet that the manufacturer says can read an external HDD. I plugged the HDD in to the tablet via usb, and and it instantly completely drained the battery on the tablet. (It wasn't fully charged in the first place, but it had some capacity remaining.) The HDD has not worked subsequently.

If anyone can help me figure out a way to get my data off the HDD, you would earn my undying gratitude. I don't really care about the hardware at all, but my data is valuable to me.

TIA
 

A:WD My Book External HDD blues

You can try opening up the enclosure and removing the hard drive from it. You can then connect to the drive to a SATA port in a desktop computer to see if you can access it or use another external enclosure or USB to SATA adapter to attempt to access the drive. If you're lucky its only the USB part of the enclosure that's damaged and the drive is fine.

In any case, we stress backups for a reason; drives fails and if you do not backup your data(as in more than one copy) then you will lose your data.
