I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Okay I have Windows Vista 32 bit. I want to clean install Windows 7 64 bit.

I have a 640GB HDD running my vista now. I was thinking of buying a 1TB Internal HDD because I need more space. I want to transfer all my movies, pics, music, etc to my new HDD and have it all on a clean windows 7.

So if I;
-unplugged my old vista HDD
-hooked up blank new HDD as master
-installed windows 7 to the new blank HDD
-click my old vista HDD to slave
-plug in the old HDD
-copy all my files from old HDD(vista) to new HDD(windows 7)
-format the old HDD to be windows 7

Would this work? Or would there be a problem switching the vista one to be a slave? Would there be a probalem transfering files?

Any other way that would be better?

Hello, I have a problem with my Thinkpad T430 which I recently bought... It is running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (Version 1709; Buildnumber 16299.19) and according to Lenovo Companion, it is the version 2349.Anyways, if I open the audio settings > recording devices, I can't find the internal microphone. If I connect my headset with combo jack, its microphone won't be detected as well... Reinstalling the drivers did not work for me and the other instrucitons of the Lenovo Support page didn't help either. I would appreciate your help,Thanks :-)

Hi everyone,

I got a Lenovo U410 and it comes with 750GB plus 24GB SSD. I think it is possible to install win 8 on the SSD drive? Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

Also, the main reason why I'm asking is:
1) I don't have a sticker on the back of my computer with a key, and I don't know what I'd do if software asked me for it
2) It doesn't have a CD/DVD drive. Would it be possible to boot windows from external HDD or I'd need a memory stick?

Thank you.

A:Clean install on internal SSD

Hello Lestro, and welcome to Eight Forums.

I'm sorry, but 24GB is really just to small for a Windows installation. You would run out of free space almost instantly. I wouldn't recommend anything under 50GB for the bare minimum without planning on having much installed.
Q1) Since this is an OEM PC that came with Windows 8 preinstalled, your product key will be embedded in the UEFI/BIOS firmware chip on the motherboard. It will be detected and entered automatically anytime you reinstall your Windows 8 on only that specific PC.

Q2) You could to reset Windows 8 to be able to do a factory recovery of Windows 8 on the PC anytime you like. If you like, you could also create a recovery drive (USB flash drive) to use to do a factory recovery with as well.

I have a Core 2 Duo PC with 2 SATA internal drives:

Seagate 320 gig, with C and D partitions. C contains a legit retail upgrade version of Vista Home. D is for data.

Western Digital 640 gig, with a single E partition, currently used as backup.

I ordered a Windows 7 Home Premium retail upgrade at the discounted price a few months ago and expect it in a month.

My Seagate drive is running low on space and I want to retire it. I would like to boot to the Win 7 DVD, have my Vista install on the Seagate recognized, and then do a clean install of Windows 7 on the Western Digital drive, currently E.

I hope to buy another considerably larger backup drive shortly to replace the Western Digital as a backup drive.

Will the WD drive be available as a location for the installation in these circumstances?

Any previous time I have installed MS operating systems, I always chose to install to the same drive as the existing OS. This time things are different due to little space on the Seagate drive. Windows 7 would certainly fit on my current C, but I want to retire that drive.

Or will this remain a complete unknown until some time after October 22?

Or will I be forced to install to the Seagate and then somehow migrate the install to the WD?

I have not played with the RC, so I don't know what options are normally presented during the install.

Thanks for any opinions.

A:Clean install onto secondary internal drive?


if I read your post correctly You can do what you want. IN win 7 you dont have to install it to the partiton with the previous OS, in fact MS recommends you dont upgrade but do a clean install instead.
that being the case 650 gigs probably should be partitoned for win 7 and data if I understand your partition straegy.
Are you looking to dual boot, vista and win 7 or looking to get rid of vista and install win 7 by itself?

Hi: See if this works... Make your own W10 installation media on another PC from the link below (Media Creation Tool). https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Use the product key from the W10 home version your purchased. NOTE:  It is also very possible there is already a W10 Pro product key in the BIOS of your PC (they either came with W10 Pro or W8.1 Pro), and that should work with automatically with the installation media you created. If it has a W10 key in the BIOS, you can use the W10 Home edition you bought on another PC.

I own a laptop (Presario CQ56) and have been using Skype constantly for about a year with its internal microphone without an issue. After obtaining an automatic Windows 7 update a couple of days ago, my internal microphone stopped working. The microphone is still detected, enabled, but isn't picking up any input whatsoever. However, there is low static, but it's very constant, and isn't changed by input whatsoever. Here are the things I've tried:

-System Restore to before the update, then disabling automatic updates so I no longer have it
-Running the computer's find and fix audio recording software which claimed that there was no issue
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers without restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (with driver updates automatically through the computer's find and fix audio recording problems)
-Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers with restart (through the official site's driver updates)

I do not own an external microphone, and I am hoping that I don't have to get one. That being said, that also means that I can't be entirely sure whether it's software or hardware based.

I hope that one of you can help me. I've done a lot of internet scouring and Google-ing and have run out of things to try; I've been at it for about 5 hours so far.

Thank you in advance.

A:Internal Microphone Suddenly Not Working After Windows Update

I would do a system restore to before it did the updates and see if it resolves the issue. Click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Choose the date before the problem started happening and let it restore. See if the mic works after that. If it asks to do updates again and by chance you know what one caused the problem; then just dont download it. And to solve that from happening i would change the windows update settings to only download but let me choose when to install. EDIT: nevermind the system restore I just saw you already did that. In the end though i would just completely uninstall the device itself; remove it from device manager completely; and let windows hopefully re-detect it correctly.

The Windows 10 upgrade seems to be working fine on my HDX 16 (I did a clean install). Now I want to talk to Cortana and cannot get my built-in microphone to work. This brings up two questions. 1. Does my laptop model have an Integrated Microphone Array? I cannot remember the last time it worked, but I thought it had one. 2. If it does have a built-in mic, how do I get Windows 10 and Cortana to hear it? I have tested and have got things to work with an external (Logitech) headset mic and headphones. And, I have an old unbranded external stand mic that works as well. I just cannot yell "Hey Cortana" at my PC and get anything to happen. I also ran the mic test on the Integrated Microphone Array and it recorded nothing (and I set the array to default). My driver is IDT High Definition Audio CODEC 6.10.6225.0, dated 7/21/2009.

Hey, I bought a used (from pro seller, "perfect" condition)  "Lenovo Thinkpad T430 i7-3520M 2,90GHz 8GB 320GB 1600x900 HD"I am *almost* happy with it, but now comes my admittedly peculiar problem.The air coming out from the fan is not exactly pleasant, i.e. I can't let the device run for 1 hour without getting a scratchy throat / hoarse voice from it.I.e. it releases irritants of some sort into the air.Now while I had this with some, but not nearly all, e.g. PC power supplies (new) and their blown-out air, I am also very sensitive to anything tobacco smoke related, so it *could* be possible that it's not the device per se but the previous owner was a smoker and they somehow managed to clean the outside of the device to not have smell (it doesn't), but the problem from the inside is still residues. (smokers' gear tends to have such problems)*if* that were the case - is there a way to clean whatever the air comes in contact with that comes out from that fan, or replace "some parts" or a whole unit / module of something?(I have no idea about the internal  layout, maybe the question is silly to anyone who knows it)It's only speculation, but depending on the cost of things I might experiment.Or I have to sell the thing again and need to get a new one from a shop where they demo running devices, where I can test whether the devices have that problem... *sigh*

A:Thinkpad T430 internal fan - "nasty air"

Welcome to the forum.
This smell may not be tobacco related.
It's possible that some plastic or rubber part or wire insulation, etc. has been burned inside, perhaps as the result of a failing component that overheated. The failed component was replaced but the smelly part was left unchanged. Here is a previous thread that describes such a situation: Burning Smell and Short Circuit on T430s. 
Another possibility are the rubber rails that hold the HDD/SSD in place in the main drive bay. I recall when the T430 series was introduced that there were reports about strange smells from these rails. You might want to check this possibility.
Since this is a new (to you) system you may not want to open it and look/smell inside. But it's something to consider. Otherwise return it to the seller.

Hello, since today, i don't have sound from the internal speakers, headphones or external speakers work fine! I tried reinstalling sound drivers but nothing has helped so far, can anybody help me with this? It stopped working overnight, I do use the headphones a lot so the jack gets used a lot, is this a hardware or a software issue? And what is likely to fix it since I'm not to keen on sending it in while I'm working on my bachelor's thesis for school.

A:No sound from internal speakers in T430

Hi, erceve
If you go to the Control Panel and open up Device Manager, you should see something called Sound, video and game controllers. Open this up and right-click on the device that controls your speakers (likely Realtek) and select Properties. What is the driver version and status as listed in this Window? 
Thanks in advance,

I'm having a bit of a problem after I reset a Toshiba Satellite C55D-A-13T computer and upgraded it to windows 10. I reinstalled all the software from the Windows 10 upgrade Toshiba page and everything appears to work except the internal microphone. It doesn't appear to register any sound. It worked before, with windows 8.1 installed.

I tried another external microphone and that work fine. I tried reinstalling the IDT sound drivers and uninstalled DTS sound and Toshiba audio enhancements. I tried different audio levels and boost levels. The newest BIOS is installed. I tried using microsoft HD audio drivers but always with the same result, the green bar doesn't budge in recording devices.

Hello, I have a problem with the microphone that is build in the laptop. When the jack entry is clear, the microphone works fine. When I plug in my headphones the build in microphone stops working. However, the headphone does not have a build-in microphone (so it's only like a speaker) that I can use. How can I use my laptop microphone while the headphone is plugged in. In the record section (of the laptop's sound option) the microphone of my laptop is still checked as default and as active.

To check your internal microphone is working use the windows sound recorder..... start, all programs,accessories,entertainment,sound recorder. Make a recording and check it records and plays back. If this works your internal mic is OK and I would start looking at a Yahoo driver or settings problem instead. From memory, the microphone is a small hole on the lid adjacent to the webcam.
