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 have a Maxtor D740X-6L 40gb drive but there are no details marked on the drive casing for me to enter into the BIOS. The BIOS shows most items as AUTO and everything works OK but I need to enter the drive details into the BIOS because when I use Acronis TI7 I cannot make a drive restore when using the TI startup disk as it says it cannot find any hard drives. (When I exit TI the PC starts normally).

I figured that if I fed the drive details into the BIOS instead of AUTO it might enable TI to 'see' the hard drive at TI startup.

I have Googled the drive but I cannot find the relevant details as required by the BIOS; namely -

cylinders
head
sector
CHS capacity
Maximum LBA capacity
(although I think the last two might be automatic, currently shown as 0mb)

Usually this kind of information is marked on the drive itself but not in this case.

Can anybody advise, please?

Hi all, I have just acquired a Thinkpad T430 running windows 7 professional 64bit, and recently restored to factory settings. The windows shows the drive as Windows7_OS (C 440GB and Lenovo Recovery (Q 13.6GB. I would like to resize the C: 440GB partition into C: 190GB and D: 250GB (approx), with D: for my data only. I have tried the Windows Disk Management, and shrinked the C: to 190GB. But when I tried to create simple volume on the Unallocated Space, the windows gives error and says "There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation." I have searched online and discover that this maybe due to the 3 or 4 primary partitions limit I am having. The image shows the partition I am having now. My question is:1. What can I do in order to create the D: partition?2. My drive is shown to be Basic disk, will converting to Dynamic disk allow the above?3. Having converted to Dynamic disk, will the Recovery/Restore factory still work? Appreciate for any help.

Hello,
 
I recently had my corrupted hard drive replaced, and while they reinstalled Windows 7 Professional for me, they didn't install some Lenovo drivers that I was used to (like a trackpad one that enabled two-finger scrolling).  Since I installed the Realtek Audio driver, I haven't had sound in certain applications.  The Windows startup and login sounds are fine, as is audio in Windows Media Player, but when I try to play a song in iTunes, the diamond showing the song's progress doesn't move and the play/pause/skip buttons don't work.  On Youtube, videos play fine, but there's no sound.  It's the same on other online streaming websites like CBS.
 
Occasionally, the sound will come back after startup and stay that way for up to a day, but it's never permanent.  At first, I thought this had something to do with reinstalling the Realtek driver.  I took my laptop to the IT guys at my college, and it seemed like they had fixed it after installing a package of Lenovo drivers, but the sound disappeared after a day or so.  Two days ago, I reinstalled the Realtek driver myself and the sound came back again for a day.  However, I tried doing it again today, with no luck.
 
Thanks so much in advance for your help!
 
Best,
Pearl

A:Audio problems after Lenovo T430 hard drive replacement

Looks like I fixed it for the time being.  Turned out to be separate problems.  To fix iTunes, I opened Quicktime preferences and under the audio tab, clicked "Select Audio Playback and Recording Devices" and selected the Realtek speakers.  The streaming video problem was possibly Chrome-exclusive.  I downloaded both Shockwave and Flash.  After installing Flash, sound worked fine on IE.  I then disabled the Shockwave plugin in Chrome, which apparently fixed the audio in Chrome.  I've seen people on the internet talking about problems following from there being multiple Flash plugin files in Chrome, but I only had one file.

Hello everybody.
I have 3 HDD, 500GB that I use for storing files, downloads and games - all the stuff I don't need much. Other is 1TB that holds 2 disks, 100GB system disk and remaining space for programs, music, documents - important stuff. And the third is 1TB and I want it to be used as a backup HDD. So what I want is to have a complete backup of system disk and important stuff and ignore the 500GB HDD. I set the backup to be performed everyday at 4 am since I don't turn off my PC. Recently I noticed that system image started to require that 500GB disk. I was wondering why? All it has is a folder with one game that I didn't even install - just copied, and a Downloads folder. I installed Dues Ex 3 on this disk but removed since. Can I somehow manually find the reson for this disk to be necessary for system image and eliminate it?

So what I need is to always have a most recent backup of one 1TB HDD on another 1TB HDD. And it would be nice to have a system saved as well so if my HDD crashes I won't have to reinstall everything. If this is too much to ask from Windows 7 I guess I'll just have the files backed up, without the system.

Calling technical support would be able to decode error WHD01V00M-DL7W5M using specific internal tools but as it is very evident at the moment with the described performance issue , you may need to replace the harddrive.  
 
S.M.A.R.T. test is a harddrive integrity measure to alert users to backup their files as much as they can to avoid data loss before everything breaks down and make the harddrive unbootable.

It may be the the harddrive itself is bad , so if you have another harddrive to test it with just to islate if BIOS would detect another harddrive. 
 
Hope you manage to abck up your data , you may slave the harddrive in an enclosure and test it on another pc to diagnose its integrity .

In December 2012, I purchased a T430 laptop with Windows 7 as the OS.  Soon after I got my T430, I created a recovery DVD from the Lenovo Recovery Partition. This week my hard drive died and I went to use the recovery disk to reinstall Windows 7.  Problem is, the recovery disk appears to be for Windows 8 OS!!!  Now I'm left with no laptop. Who do I speak with about getting the correct recovery media for Windows 7?  I'd better not be charged for the disks...perhaps they can drop them into a file sharing site? Anyone else experience this???













Solved!

A:Recovery Disk for T430

OK, just phoned Lenovo support and told them what I described above. They won't send me the correct recovery disks unless I BUY them. Faulty software installed on my t430 and they want ME to pay to replace it! I'm not asking for a new hard drive, or even any help reinstalling the OS on a new hard drive. But I do believe that since I paid for a Win 7 laptop that it should have had a Win 7 recovery partition installed on it, not a Win 8 recovery partition!The tech insisted that I had to purchase recovery media from them. I can't use the PC because the HDD crashed (no problem, it's out of warranty, it happens) and I cannot reinstall the OS because Lenovo put the wrong recovery partition on my PC. I followed their instructions precisely when I bought the machine and created a recovery disk. I've had no reason to access this disk until now. And it's useless to me...Who do I call to make this right???
