Yoga 920 Lid closes crooked/out of alignment

Q: Yoga 920 Lid closes crooked/out of alignment

Hello everyone, I bought Yoga 920 from BestBuy right a month ago. I liked the laptop overall, but I just noticed that there is a little misalignment with the lid. While the left side is matching perfectly when I close, right side is not. Is there anyone who noticed that too? Or any suggestions as a solution? Thank you

Hi everyone,New Lenovo Yoga 710 15" owner here.  I absoluteley love this laptop, but when I close the lid, it's doesn't quite line up with the bottom portion of the laptop.  When closed, the top (lid) is crooked. This hinges look ok to me.  When I had the laptop open to upgrade the RAM I even inspected them closer and I don't see an issue there. Anyone else with a 710 having this issue?  Is there a fix? Thanks!

So I picked up a 13" 720 from best buy yesterday, and so far I love it. The only issue, however, is that the left hinge is at a slant. When I close the laptop, both hinges are pretty easy to "wobble" if I press on them with a little force. https://i.imgur.com/yl2CY40.jpg Is this normal as far as this line of laptops go? Is it worth going in and returning it?

I have my "Caption" style customized with Alignment=Centered, however whenever I insert a new caption for a picture (right click on picture|Insert Caption), its alignment is Left, which is the same alignment that the picture has by default; if I change the alignment of the picture beforehand, for example to Right, then its caption will also be inserted with Alignment=Right, disregarding the style. I therefore have to manually apply the Caption style for every single caption that I insert, in order for it to become centered. Interestingly enough, even though the caption does not have the Caption style when first inserted, it does have all of the text formatting included in that style; for instance, I have set the font under the Caption style to be gray and italicized, and inserted Captions are indeed gray and italicized, but the Alignment setting is always overwritten by the picture's alignment. My question is whether it is possible to either - make inserted captions automatically be of the style Caption, or - set a default alignment for inserted pictures; I know you can set a default *position* for them (such as In-line With Text, or Squared) but I'm not sure if there is also a style for pictures or something that can allow a default set of settings for every new picture inserted into the document Can anyone help? Anticipated thanks. PS: using Word 2007 on Windows XP.

So recently, I got a brand new Yoga 730 lKb with the i7 and 1050 and before buying it, I had read that the laptop sometimes overheats during hard gaming but thermal throttling can be prevented with disabling Intelligent Cooling in Vantage so I didn't see that as much of a problem. The moment I got the laptop, Vantage never managed to launch properly and whenever it launches, it shows the lenovo logo and nothing else, no loading circles and such and after 2 or 3 seconds, it closes. I haven't actually tried running any games yet to see if it will end up thermal throttling but it still bugs me that I can't open it. I have tried multiple solutions and been going through forums for a couple days trying every solution stated but it still doesn't work. I am running Windows 10 Home Build 1809 and here's some extra information:I hope someone can help and reply as soon as possible, Thanks

this is really getting on my nerves... but i have an old deskjet 812c that i have found to be a great old printer and it has done its job until recently...

i was printing a doc. for school and although every word was on the page and everything was inorder, the print came out crooked.

now i reprinted thinking that maybe the paper was getting caught and then printing, that wasnt the case. then i tried unloading the paper and then reloading new sheets, that didnt work.

finally i unloaded and reloaded the software and got some updates. nothing has worked for this printer to print a full page totally lined up and neat for presentation to my instructors... has anyone had this problem and gotten it fixed? what can i do to get this problem straightened out without going into a repair shop?

Hi there,I recently ordered an X1 2017 but sent it back for several reasons. One minor issue with it was that the left hinge was slightly crooked. Not by a lot, some might not even notice, but for me not really acceptable for a 2k5? device. Unfortunately it was the first thing I noticed during unboxing. With the lid closed you see that it's not parallel to the rest of the device. Meanwhile I have ordered one again and unfortunately it's the same in terms of crooked hinge. So I'm suspecting a general "problem". Obviously the support team never ever heard of such a thing.Just wondering - how is your's? I don't think I'll do anything about it since I don't think the service team will do a better job than the factory and generally things don't tend to get better by taking them apart. However - just curious if I'm the only one. Cheers,reach

I tripped on a cord connected to my Toshiba Satellite 1800-S204 laptop tonight and it fell onto the carpeted floor from a table about 1.5 feet off the ground. Not too high up, but bad enough. The computer was still running and appeared to be fine, but upon closer inspection I noticed that the image on the screen is now slightly crooked, turned a tiny bit counterclockwise. It's the kind of thing easily fixed on a desktop monitor, but this is a laptop monitor and no such adjustments can be made. It doesn't really interfere with my work, only that the top right corner of any maximized window, where the minimize, maximize, and close buttons are, is halfway off the screen. It's more of an irritation than anything, and will continue to be one whenever I decide to watch DVDs. Is this a serious problem? How can I get it fixed? Thanks.

Hi, All.
I just purchased two Samsung 172T black flat panel monitors. After I opened the double hinge stand and stood them up, the panels tilted to the right. In other words, they are not level. The shelf is pretty level. The panel is not level or parallel with its base. Both units tilt the same on different shelfs. So, I cannot believe that I got two bad units.

Is there an adjustment screw on the hinge that will enable me to level the unit? I have yet to call Samsung - I thought that I would try here first.

Thanks,
Chet

My Lenovo 710, intel i5 8gb RAM version has an extremely irritating problem in that it emits a high pitched noise from the left side of the chasis (opposite to the charging port) when charging and powered off. The noise is very high pitched, so much so that it almost tops my hearing limit. (I am 20 years old.) It only occurs when the laptop is off and charging, and occurs regardless of the battery %. I am certain that the noise is coming from the left side of the computer, and not the actual wall wart itself. I am using the charger that came with my brother's old Lenovo 710 pentium laptop, but since the amperage and voltage output seem to be a same, I don't imagine that it's the cause of the problem. Secondly, the right hinge on my computer is crooked. Not sure why, not sure how, but it is. It doesn't seem to affect anything, as my computer still folds and closes properly without any noticeable deformities. Not a big problem, but somewhat irritating.

Hi everyone,

I have Intel X-25M 80 GB SSD. I want to install Windows 7 Pro x64, MS Office and other application on it.


Should I create partition primary align=1024 or Create partition primary size=100 align=1024?

Thank you.

A:SSD Alignment

I assume you are using diskpart????

I think the first one will create a single partition covering the entire drive.

I think the second one will create a small 100 mb partition that you could then make the system partition.

But you don't need that small system partition, so I would do the first command.

I don't think you even need the align part of the command.
Then:

select partition 1

active

format fs=ntfs quick

exit

Hello, recently i bought 256Gb sandisk ssd, i wanted to clone my previous hard drive partition with Windows 7 in it, because i dont want to do any new installations of windows. there is just too much custom settings in system.

Anyway, by reading tutorials over the net and using EaseUS partition master 9.3.0 paid version, i cloned my C partition to my new ssd witch i connected to USB>SATA cable for temporarly use.

Anyway, before copying, i formated SSD with windows 7 and it gave 1024offset. seems all right.
However, after started cloning in safe mode (it took 5 hours), EaseUS reformatted my SSD again and gave wrong offset, starting sector was 63.

After that i googled some method, i corrected alignment with "Minitool partition wizard home edition" free application.

Now here is the results:

then type...... list disk

it will show you the offset and it has to be divisible by 4

I have set up 2 computers with SSD as the C drive. I used diskpart to align both of them. Both had different issues. The 1st I could not install the image backup so I did a fresh install of W7.

The 2nd the image restore when smooth and all seemed to work but I had a new hardware conflict the was giving me BSOD and I didn?t figure that out until I hosed the 500g backup drive on the machine (another thread). So I did a fresh install of Vista.

As always when I install a fresh copy I format the drive to install windows on and it looks to me like I must have deleted the partition for the bitlocker set up in the diskpart procedure. As you can see from the screenshots nether of them shows a partition.

So at this point both seem to work fine. Can they be aligned after the OS has been installed? Or do I make an image then remove each and align and restore the image?

I have just migrated my Win8 HDD to an SSD and ran Diskpart to check the alignment. The attached shows the result. Note Partition 1's (The UEFI partition) offset is 1024KB which is fine, I think. Partition 2's (Win 8 System) offset is 330MB and Partition 3's (Data) is 60GB. Neither of the last 2 is divisible by 4 evenly. Does that mean they are not properly aligned for an SSD? Or should I just not worry about it?

One wierd thing happens periodically when on the internet: If an internet window has a row of tabs with names, like a toolbar, the names aren't in the location of the associated tab.

Not sure if this should be posted in here so sorry if this is in the wrong location.

I have a friends Dell Studio 1555 laptop and their hard drive was failing badly. They have no money right now to get a new drive so I opted to help because I have 2 SSD's sitting around planned for nothing. So I had imaged the drive about 2-3 months ago and he has that. So I took the SSD and just imaged the system on to it; but I forgot about the alignment. I was able to boot in to Windows 7 and all that. It seems fine. But I said I need to wipe the SSD (Parted Magic process) and then create the alignment partition. Then I imaged the system, but this time at boot up all I can get to is I believe is the Dell Utility test. There is no way around that I can see.

So I Parted Magic again, reloaded without the alignment and the system boots. So he needs his laptop back and to me it is running, but I know of the alignment issue. Believe me when I say he is just going to love the speed compared to what he had (which BTW the original drive had like 738 unrepairable items), but I know about the alignment issue. Here are some screenshots I attached.

So I am wondering if there is a way to fix this without having to reload from the image? That way I can give him his laptop so he can work on whatever he needs to do and I can come back a week or two later to realign it; if that is all possible.

Also, if you look at the Disk Management I am not sure why at the end there is that 5GB un-formatt... Read more

A:Should I change the alignment on my SSD?

Hello Clem,

If you wish to get the best performance from your SSD you would ideally change its alignment to something that is divideable by 4. (Like 1024 or 2048 KB)

There's a nifty tutorial here on this forums that'll guide you through the process:-

SSD Alignment

If you wish to realign the drive and it already has an active OS on it, and do not wish to have to perform another clean install after realigning, you can use this partition alignment tool from Acronis for SSDs:-

I created a form in Adobe Designer and then had to change the page size to a smaller width. I'm trying to resize and realign the text boxes etc. to fit into the new page but all of the boxes have automatically aligned to the right side of the page (alignment within text boxes is fine). The only way I can get something to align closer than 2 inches away from the left margin is to expand the box so it is page width but in cases where there is more than one text box at the same horizontal alignment - ex. name and phone number boxes, I can't make them smaller and align one to the left. I can put them side by side but they have to be extended over whatever's on the right. Any suggestions besides starting over? it's a very big form.

Thanks
Sue

After recently doing a DiskPart check on my old standby notebook (with X25-m 160GB SSD for C-drive), I just noticed that the SSD has an offset of 31KB (not ?divisible by 4?). Drats! Don't know how that happened with I upgraded to that SSD six months ago.

Currently with a Q6600 quad in this mis-aligned-SSD laptop, the X25m benches with Crystal at 243MB/s for sequential reads. That seems a bit slow for even an old quad-core. But I?m not sure it?s worth the bother of re-align if it does 243MB/s since I don?t use it for high performance tasks ? or as long as the mis-alignment don?t significantly escalate the WRITE wear-and-tear factor (requiring/wasting more write space than necessary) and impacting the leveling function, thus shortening life-span.

What do you suggest for the easiest and SAFEST method for correcting the mis-alignment on the old notebook, or is it even worth messing with?

If so, should I do Secure Erase, then Diskpart re-align to 1024, then initialize/quick format, then clone (with my fss-Casper) the old original factory spin-HDD with W7 O/S and factory appls already installed on it. Or will the cloning from HDD merely re-re-align the SSD back to the 31KB offset again? Thanks!

A:Mis-Alignment on x25m 160GB SSD

I'm not familar with Casper, but as you describe it, it sounds more like an imaging program. A clone is a 1-1 copy from one disk to another. But, I would suggest a clean install. That will align it properly. I don't think a secure erase is necessary. Just in diskpart use the 'clean' command an not the 'clean all' command. There is a good tutorial about it, Ready hard drive/SSD for a clean install. But, again just use the clean command. The only tool I am aware of that will align an SSD with the OS installed is the $29.95 Paragon Alignment tool. It will do what you need. You could also clone the ssd to another hard drive and use the $19.95 Paragon migrate to clone it back. It will clone the OS and align the SSD correctly. I have it and have used it several times and it does it right every time.

If you don't want to spend the money, a clean install is the best option.

I'm running IE6.0 on XP. Lately when I open the browser, all the text on the page is centered. Everywhere...regardless of the website. Only text I type in is aligned left.

It's really annoying.

I've run Pandasoft virus routing and a bunch of other corrective routines, and nothing seems to work. As far as I can tell my machine is clean. Nothing I do to the browser settings seems to work, and all my searching suggests nobody else is having this problem.

Any ideas? Check out the screen shot of MSN.

When I turned on my computer this morning, this alignment grid thing appeared. Is there any way that I can disable this?  I tried to google for answers, but all I can find is to right click on desktop, click on view and uncheck "align icons to grid" but that is not the solution. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

For some reason, my desktop/wallpaper isn't going all the way to the right margin. There is about a 1/2" area of just black at the far right side. I checked my settings and it's set to be "centered". I tried the "stretch" setting and that didn't work either. I haven't messed with any settings or recently installed any new software. Anyone have any ideas what happened and/or how to fix it?

I would appreciate some help on this.

When I type a line of simple text and then insert a table directly below it the table does not by default alighn itself to the first letter of the text, it always aligns itself a little before.

Should I set Word to show text margins I notice that my table by default appears just overlap the margins on both sides while the text is within the margins.

Would anybody know why this is the case and how I can get it to be within the margins without necessarly having to drag the table border or make the use of indents just to get it to align.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Dave.

A:Table Alignment Question

I can't help you with the problem, which appears to be the default behaviour for Word, but would just say that it has the virtue of ensuring that the text in the first cell of the table aligns vertically with the body text above the table, which is typographically desirable
