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.)

Hello, I was just wondering if upgrading my graphics card from a GTX 970 to a GTX 1080 would void the care pack of my 860-160se. If the warranty is not voided, is there anything that I need to know about upgrading a graphics card; relating to the "Secure Boot" feature of HP products. I was also wondering if the standard 500W power supply can handle the 1080. The basic specs of my PC are a i7-5930K ; GTX 970 ; 4x 8GB Samsung 2133MHz. Thanks in advance!Read other answers
About a year ago I decided to get a laptop for my work/schooling need, I purchesed this laptop with a 100GB SSD not knowing how little this would be for the tasks that I was going to be doing on this laptop. I have a blank 1TB hard drive and a hard drive replicator that I could to easily clone the smaller drive onto the large drive. However I still have a fair amount of warrenty present for the laptop. If I swap out the hard drive will this void my warrenty? Thanks,

Will my laptop warranty gets void if i downgrade pre-installed Windows 10 to Windows 7? Because prefer the windows 7 than windows 10 and i bought the laptop 5-months ago.
Hi, You will not lose your warranty but (since you did not tell us this info) depending on the model you probably will not have any driver support for windows 7, so any issues which you will have due to lack of drivers will not be solved by acer. You will need to find drivers for all the components in the system by yourself. And I am expecting to be the case in your situation, since you bought it quite recently, and recent models of notebooks come with windows 10 support.Read other 1 answers

I'm planning on buying a notebook. Being a computer tech, i'd like to open it up and take a look inside.... And in the future if there is any upgrade/maintanence to perform, i'd like to do it myself.
Will this void the warranty?
And if i say i didn't open it, is there any way dell will find out that i opened it?
Hopefully some Techie here has already done it and knows the answer......... :).
No, but I can only speak for the models I am familiar with (see signature). After reading tons of posts on this forum I never recall this being a problem on any model.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
According to your model's User Guide the base or bottom cover of the laptop can be removed by the owner without voiding the warranty. The guide outlines a number of items that the owner can replace inside the computer although there is no mention about the memory. Prior to buying any memory I would recommend that you take a peek inside to see that you have socketed memory modules. At the moment I can not find any additional documentation related to replacing the memory in your model and if they are socketed or soldered directly to the board.
Here is a link to the User Guide for your reference....

I need to return my computer the HP to have it serviced, but im affraid since I took the side off and installed a TV card inside the computer, that my warrantee may be void now.
Does anyone know if that would be somthing that could make it void?
I never trusted a compuer that I did not build. Why on earth do you want them to service it? You have enough brains to install things, tell me what your problem is and I'll walk you through it. I would not like some tech pooking
around in one of my computers and switching my parts, do it yourself and not worry about the warrenty.

Hello, asking about a ThinkPad Yoga bought in EU. - Does removing the sticker with serial number on the back (base cover) void the warranty? Mine started to peel off and I want to remove it, - Does succesfully changing the HDD by the customer somehow might void the warranty in the future? I upgraded it already and now wondering whether to keep the old HDD to be able to return things in "initial condition" if need arises. Please advise.
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
We understood that your query is about Warranty on ThinkPad Yoga.
Yes, removing the sticker at the back side of the system will void the warranty.
But replacing the HDD will not void the system warranty, but the replaced parts will not come under warranty, and if there is any mishandling while replacing HDD then the system won?t cover under warranty.
If user makes any physical damage to the system while replacing the parts will not cover under warranty, if the user is having technical knowledge on that then there won't be any issue.
Hope this helps.

can a void function
i mean to ask if i use a void function is there a way in which i can stop function execution at will
If you use a void function, such as
There is no need for a return 0 to be typed.
However, if you use
int Playerskills(int skills)
skills = 25;
A return is needed.
If you want to stop the function at will, you would need an if or while statement to control it.

I've had this toshiba about a year now and didnt have this problem until recently.
Theres a website I use that has an "add pictures" button. When I click on the button its supposed to open a widow linked the the website that contains pictures that I've uploaded to the website.
So....recently when I click on the button it opens a new window containing the homepage, instead of the page containing the pics.
I've tried Firefox, Chrome, IE ....doesnt matter, all the same.
oh... I contacted the admin of the website and told them what I was trying to do and they logged into my account and placed the picture for me. So I'm ruling out the website and think its my laptop.

You can only upgrade the RAM of laptops. (99% of the time) That would do nice for Vista Ultimate.

I'm trying to upgrade the internal hard drive for my laptop since the one I had died. It came with a IDE 40 GB at 4,200 rpm. I wanted to get a bigger HD at 5,400 or 7,200 rpm. I'll probably go for one at 5,400 rpm for more than 100 GB.
The problem is HP says that my model has been tested to support hard drives at 4,200 rpm and I can't go higher than 80 GB either. I've chatted with them online and they aren't very reliable since they've told me different stories. I spoke with the IT guy at my company and he said that there shouldn't be any problems upgrading it something faster than 4,200 rpm but I'm not sure if my BIOS will support it or I'll come across problems. What does anyone think about upgrading to a faster rpm and capacity that the manufacturer suggests?
Also, which brand would you guys recommend? I'd like something fast, reliable and that doesn't overheat since the Pentium 4 that I have already does that.
The specs for my HP laptop are the following:
HP Pavilion XT5366WM
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
US product number DC996A#ABA
Microprocessor Intel Pentium 4 - 2.6GHz
Mircoprocessor Cache 512KB (L2 cache)
Frontside BUS speed 400MHz front side bus
Chipset ATI IPG 345M Northbridge
Hard drive 40 GB
Drive RPM 4200RPM
Memory 512MB DDR SDRAM
Memory max 1024 (2 x 512 MB DIMM)
Memory speed 266 MHz
Total DIMM sockets Two

You can add more RAM. Changing processors would be tricky to impossible.
I imagine it takes regular ddr SODIMM RAM, but you can go to www.crucial.com and use their tool to figure out exactly what you need. You can buy from them or order from any online retailer such as newegg or zipzoomfly.
I purchased a Samsung 850 EVO SSD 500 gb to replace my current 5400 rpm 1 tb. While the current drive still inside the laptop, I attached the empty SSD to a sata connector and attached it though USB. I didn't format the drive using disk management. I used samsung data migration software v3, which was successful, but when I switch out the old drive, it booted showing the lenovo screen then it when to a black screen. I see the HDD activity light and the mouse cursor moves, but nothing else is showing. I take the drive out, put the 5400 rpm back in and cloned it with macrium reflect. Tried again and immediately showed the lenovo screen and automatic repair on the bottom, it says it can't preform a repair and tells me to shut down. Any advice on the disk management?Read other answers
I know that you can add memory to a laptop but what about a CPU upgrade. Are there special mobile CPU's? In particular the Asus gaming republic laptops.
A friend of mine asked to check some Intel C2Q CPU's for him. He is currently running a fairly old gaming laptop. As far as I know: Intel C2D, 3GB ram memory, GTX260 GPU.
If the price is right, he might replace the C2D with the C2Q.
But before browsing around for one, I wanted to check first if there are any specifications, differences or requirements when planning on replacing a laptop CPU.
Back in the days of socket 478 there were some proprietary sockets for laptops floating around. I think today for the most part they are using sockets typical to their chipset.
Upgrading is just as dependent on bios support for other cpu's as it is for the physical socket itself though. More specific information would probably be forthcoming from the community here if we had exact make and model information on the laptop.

Can I go to Vista without losing the programs installed? And then go to Win7 from Vista without losing programs already installed?
I have seen internet "help" topics that say going to Win7 means having to reinstall all the programs. Another site said to copy programs to an external drive and then to copy the programs back. What can I do?
You can only go to Windows Vista since your PC only supports XP and Vista:
