T580 Rough/Sharp Edges

Q: T580 Rough/Sharp Edges

Hey folks,I just purchased a T580 from Lenovo.com this month. I received it and upon opening immediately noticed a continuous sharp edge all along the three sides of the keyboard/computer part of the laptop. The screen is fine, this is only along the edges of the base portion, and not including the back edge where the screen hinges. The textured surface on top of the base seems to have a sharp, possibly unfinished edge. I have spoken with the support line and haven?t gotten far. I would like to compare my laptop to a T580 in store but cannot find one. Its hard to photograph but I think I?ve captured it here just above the fan openings. If you zoom you can see the light from what I call a sharp edge. The fact that there is a change in angle at all in thus location leads me to believe it is a production oversight. I do believe I could whip this unit into shape with an emory board, but why settle for a less than excellent product. So my question to the forums is, can anyone attest to this being the normal fit and finish for these T580?s? Is this a problem or is this the expectation. Has anyone else experienced this issue?Zoom to the center of the picture and you can see the sharp edge along the bottom edge of the top piece of material

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.

I just recieved a Yoga 13.9" 920. I love it except for one major thing.  The edges are so sharp that I can only be on my computer for 20 mins. and then i need a break.  I have done exstensive research to no avail.  I have seen "fix-it" DYIs but why should I have to wear wrist wraps or tape the edges?  Anybody have same problem and gotten any help?

A:Sharp edges on the 910 and 920 series

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 910 and it has two sharp edges on the bottom - very hurtful. Even the lid edges are too sharp which are felt in the normal use of holding it and handlign it. Terrible. The two hartp bottom edges are a major source of discomfort and hurting my palm and wrist. One should not ahve to tape the edges or wear a wrist band. Lenovo shoudl fix the problem.

Ok seriously the 920 is horrendously sharp. I've had the notebook for 1 week and I just cut myself to the point of bleeding!! This isn't right! Is there sorting that is a manufacture defect on this line?

I just got a Yoga 910 as a replacement for my Yoga 900.   Is it just mine or are the edges of anyone elses' Yoga 910 extremely sharp?  When I'm using the trackpad I have my palm sit on the ledge of the laptop and it's very sharp and starts to hurt after a minute.  My Yoga 900 had maybe a plastic or something going around it and it was mostly flat or rounded -- not bothersome at all -- but the edges of the 910 are concave and sharp.  

A:Yoga 910 Sharp Edges?

Hi johnmk84 , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
We don't have reported sharp edge on the design of Yoga 910 not like with Y50-70 but it would still be best if you call in technical support to have it informed as it may also be an isolated case and to best check on it. 
Usually for prolonged laptop users , wrist guards / rolls can help.
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how best it goes for you.

Have a new Yoga C930 and the edges are sharp and cutting into my palms. Is this a defect or perhaps a design flaw? Using a palm rest/roll is not a solution. Can the edges be fixed or is there a type of case or cover that Lenovo can provide to cover the edges?

A:Yoga C930 sharp edges

I put a vinyl cover on my. On Amazon look for vinyl skins. They are about 30 bucks, but they come off with no sticky back and have prevented two serious scratches on my other computer, so I use it for protection. If you place it a little lower, the vinyl will cover the edges and it won't be so sharp.However, there is a hard shell cover from iPearl mCover again, on Amazon that I insist on purchasing for all of our computers. The problem is, the company doesn't release these for about 6 months after the new model comes out...So I wait patiently.I wasn't going to put a skin on my new C930 because I love the color and look, but I had to to protect the computer from that palm mark you get when using it.

This is from one of my kid's computers.
He had lots of people through the house and was letting them on the computer.

Redirects out the wazoo.
I got rid of the Smitfraud and most of the Veramonde, (spelling?)but not all.
There are still weird things happening as well.
In fact, when I check internet settings, there's a message at the bottom saying that only the administrator can change some of those settings.
He IS the administrator.

I'm not at his house..mainly because I can't get to this site from there before being redirected to hotdate.com or some such.

I'd wager there was a pornfest goin on there and lots of goodies came in with the garbage.

I was able to run spybot and found Zango, and Veramonde, as well as a few others which are somewhat insideous and can't really be gotten rid of.

Before I can give an approx price tag on your system, one thing for me needs a little clarification, maybe this to will help others slap a price tag on your system.

But I'm a little leery with the use of some words here, "just bought" and "brand new' and "few months old"! But with the BIOS having a version date of July-31-2007, how new can this computer be?

I'll just sit back a while and see if this can be clearly explained by either you and or someone else out there who might have an answer. After that I may slap a price tag on what I feel this system is worth. But do take one thing into consideration when standing by and awaiting peoples approx value of your system. Just like buying a new car, once it's front two tires hit a city street the dealership automatically devalues the car by 1/4 right from the get go, I should know I worked for Chevrolet as a car salesman for 3 years. So as like with cars so true with computers, they can depreciate their value very quickly. Even just by burning some hours on a computer, it can therefor go towards people not looking as the system as brand new anymore, but rather they might now think depreciated value.

Just something to think about!

Hi everyone so I've been running a T1100 AMD CPU for a while and I hate it, it's done well but in the last few months the whole system has gone to pot so I figured I'd make the move back to intel.
Now I was planing on getting a single GTX690 but then for the same money/slightly less money I can get crossfired HD7970's 6000MHz.
So this was my planned setup and it hit's the mark all par the OS but I can't get an OEM copy of windows 7 so I might have to move over to 8 for 60...

Intel i7 3770K 3rd gen
Asus P8Z77
2x Gigabyte HD7970 3GBGDDR5
Coolermaster HAF XM with GX lite 700watt PSU
8GB Corsair Dominator RAM 2666MHz
internal Blu-ray drive
Segate 750GB hybrid SSD plus an extra 1TB drive for Steam games
Windows 8 64Bit

So what does everyone think? I'll be running on a 32" 1080p Samsung LED TV.

A:£1500 rough budget for new PC

I would get rid of the 2666Mhz and just pick up 1600Mhz RAM. Also, what is the purpose for this PC? If it is for gaming I would probably knock the 3770K down to a I5-3570K.

I would go with a different PSU then the one you listed. For crossfire cards 700w will power them, but I'd opt for something around 800-850w range. This will allow you some headroom for the future.

When it comes to 690 vs 7970 CFX it all comes down to patience. When running two cards you will often run into driver issues and things such as micro stuttering. Additionally, it create much more heat and noise. So, if you can deal with things like that - go with the 7970's. If not, go with the 690.

For your storage, I would opt for a regular SSD instead of a hybrid and just buy a larger secondary drive.

I bought a 25 dollar rosewill full atx case from newegg about a year and a half ago that came with a 350W atx psu. Somehow it ran for 1 year running a full atx pentium 3 mobo with 3 hd's and a combo drive, lan card, modem, video card, and a fan. Then it ran for about 2 months on my micro atx mobo with a amd athlon 64 3200+, 4 80mm fans, 1 120mm fan, 2 hd's, combo drive, modem, and a nvidia 8600GT. Somehow it ran all that time with no problems ever. So i went with a new Rosewill Stallion 500w psu, and it hasen't given me a problem yet.

A:Rosewill - diamond in the rough?

I've heard very mixed things about Rosewill. I personally own a 17" Rosewill LCD (now a backup monitor since I have a Samsung 226bw) which I've had since about 2005-2006 I think. Never had any issue, worked wonderfully and still does. I also am using one of their PSU's on my current rig, so far so good - been running 4 months with the PC on for days at a time.

I work for a corporation whose corporate machines are all Lenovos. We have a ton of Thinkpad X1 Carbons that are used by various staff, and I quite liked them. This led me to spec out an X1 Extreme for my own personal use. I received the laptop about 3 weeks ago, and I have struggled in keeping the temp down. Even after undervolting successfully with throttlestop, I could never get to not pin the CPU when plugged in AC. It would behave just fine when on battery, but I often RDP into my laptop and thus usually keep it plugged in,.. and this caused the heat to increase and the fans to roar. I know others have been successful in repasting.. but I was hoping the undervolt would have been more successful. Others on this forum claimed to have success with a fresh clean install of Windows......so I considered it.. but I keps on having some WiFi issues that I wanted to solve first...First, I would never get consistent speeds.. one speed test run would yield speeds north of 300 Mb/s.. another run a few minutes later would sturggle to even hit 20 Mb/s. Eventually the Wi-Fi would stop working period. Opening up the Device Manager would often show a yellow warning symbol next to the Intel 9560 WiFi adapter with a Code 10 error message. Sometimes a reboot would help, but the majority of the times I had to use my backup Asus USB WiFi adapter. Then, the 9560 disappeard completely from the Device Manager and nothing I did would allow me to get it back.

I thought I'd make a thread that contains some useful info and some cool tools to use to make Win 8 all pretty and customised to your needs and geeky desires.

I will start with some basics and then list some tools you can use. Please feel free to add what you use and I will update the post with your suggestions and recommendations.

*Please note all tools and methods are used at your own risk , break your system and rant to me about it and I will laugh at you ~ Remember you are doing stuff Windows 8 is not designed to do but if you follow instructions provided by the authors you won't go wrong.*
Patching your system to allow Visual Styles

The first thing you will need to do is patch some files to allow you to add an unsigned custom "Visual Style" (VS) they are : themeui.dll, UXInit.dll and uxtheme.dll

You can use THIS or THIS . Please follow the instructions TO THE LETTER and you are good to go. Really easy to do and it's free.

*NOTE* Not sure if these will work on 8.1 but I'm sure they will , once a final version is released.

How to add a Visual Style.
Download a VS from your favourite source ( I will list some later on in the post) then unZip/unRar if needed. You will have to copy the unpacked files to your themes folder. This is located here :


You should now have placed the "theme" and a folder containing shellstyle.dll and wallpaper ( If one is provided ) into the correct place.

There's no non-model specific laptop forum so I'm posting here and the moderator can move is necessary. My wife has had it with the referenced Dell (I had upgraded it with an SSD & Win10 last July--I think the mem is 6GB). It's the only non-Lenovo machine we've had since '98. It was purchased by IT recommendation when I was out of commission for a few weeks and couldn't attend to the details. She uses the laptop infrequently (main machine is a Lenovo desktop with 1st gen SSD & Win7) but when she does she has the patience of a fruit fly and will not accept anything but quick response/loading. The primary applications used are: Office 365 (largely Outlook), Quickbooks and Quicken. I have a P50 which is way more power & $ than she needs. She wouldn't use a touch screen but a 15" screen is preferrable. An onboard optical drive and camera are unneccessary. Model suggestion(s)? Mark

I've some how managed to caught a Trojan or perhaps the new term is RANSOMWARE.
I receive a box on my system microsoft security essentials has determined that 
I have several trojans and other exposures on my system. I receive this about 
twice a day. I don't have essentials running on my windows 8 system. They want 
me to select OK so they can repair the problems.
I have not selected anything to determine the cost of repair if any.
I've tried several methods to resolve this. ex; malwarebytes, anti virus, bit defender,
kaspersky virus removal tool, norman malware cleaner, microsoft safety scanner,
just to name a few. 
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have had htis problem for ages, and now want to actually fix it!

I have permintently coloured titles on my desktop icons. I have tried going to control panel/System/Advanced/Performance/settings 'use drop shadows for icons'...etc...plus i have un-checked lock desktop icons.

Also there is a slight roughness around the icon, showing part of the same background colour as the title, as if the icon has been roughly cut out, leaving a jaggedy edge to the icon.

Anyone have similar problems, or knows how to solve this? I think I may have been a victim of spyware a few times.

A:Rough Desktop Icons and Opaque Icon Title

If you have ever right clicked on an item and clicked
"Set as desktop item..." then this may be the problem. You need to make sure that they are not selected.
Do this by right-clicking on the desktop >
Display / Desktop tab / then selecting "Customize Desktop".
Click on the Web tab and make sure none are selected.

Maybe? XP's Tweak UI tool > under The Repair branch


The first item on the list is Repair Icons. To improve performance when loading icons into the user interface, Windows XP keeps track of all the icons currently in use in a special cache file. If this file becomes corrupted, the icons used in the user interface will become scrambled. For example, you or your users may discover that your icons are all black or have mysteriously changed. You can quickly set things straight by choosing Rebuild Icons.

Try re-installing the sound driver which you can download from the Dell support website: http://support.euro.dell.com/support/index.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&s=dhs

Click "Drivers & Downloads", then enter your laptop's Service Tag which should be on a sticker on the underside.

On some older games, like starcraft and fallout 2, I can`t see the edges of the game. I`ve found a mod to starcraft which windows the game, so I can see them, but the window is very small and I`d prefer it fullscreen. There is no mod for FO2. Is there any way to fix this?

A:edges getting cut off on my monitor

Hello Accurateboy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might try different screen resolution settings in the game to see if you can find one that looks ok.

If not, then you can go into the NVIDIA Control Panel (right click on Desktop), and select the Adjust desktop size and position option. From here, you would select your monitor if you have more than one, then click on the green arrow boxes to adjust your screen horizontal and vertical display position to how you like it on the screen.

Hope this helps,

Recently, I replaced the hard-disk in a Dell Optiplex GX280 machine that crashed.
I am trying to resolve a font jagged edge problem on the Dell Optiplex GX280 Computer with a Flat Screen monitor(2005FPW). The Graphics Chipset is an Intel 855GME with a driver version I loaded the Dell drivers first and it did not make a difference. Secondly, I loaded the previously mentioned driver and it did not make a difference either. This is the original driver that was on the computer prior to replacing the hard disk that crashed. The monitor is known to be good and has been tried successfully on another computer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I hope this is the correct forum for a printing problem. I have a new Canon Pixma 560. When I print, such as an email, it is chopping off part of the text on both the left and right side of the page. I have aligned the printhead. The margin is set to zero. I have tried fit to page, borderless, scale to page, nothing works. I am running xp media center edition. If it matters, my monitor is an Acer H213H, 21.5", 16:9 ratio, resolution set to 1440x900.

Hey I have a laptop with a resolution of 1366X768 And I am using a HDMI cable to connect it to a 19" 1600X900 TV. My problem is that the TV's edges are cut off, Heres an example Image 1 of 4 in forum thread ?Edges cut off using HDMI??. Thanks PS (my Tv does not have an option to disable Overscan)

A:Laptop to TV Using HDMI, Edges Cut off

A common problem when using a TV as a monitor with a digital input. The only way I was able to fix it is to use the TV's own on-screen menu to manually adjust Vertical height and centering and horizontal height and centering. Fortunately, my TV allows for separate settings for each input so when I switch to TV mode, it looks right there too.

Your only other option may be to use a D-Sub analog (VGA) connection instead of digital (HDMI). But sadly, you lose may lose some image quality that way.

Note this problem is often caused when TVs use 16:9 aspect ratios (best for 1080p HD resolutions) and the computer's graphics solution uses 16:10 (or the other way around).

I use PhotoShop 9.0. I've created an image with edges feathering to transparency, and in PS it looks just the way I want it to, but I need to save it in a format that will work on a webpage. I thought gif would work, but the edge comes off all wrong. I can't get the image to feather into transparency. An "Indexed colors" box comes up when I save as gif, and I can't find "transparent" as an option anywhere, I have to pick a color or have the edges cut off where the feathering begins. Is there a way to do it?

Does this make any sense?

Hi guys

I recently bought a new comp with a hd 4870 sapphire.
Everything is fine , but some textures, usually small stuff, has jagged edges.And some times even bigger objects has flickering edges. It is noticebale when i movethe camera.Textures seem to flicker when i walk around or move any way in the game. And it is annoying .On some games it is extremly bad, like ArmA 2. Making it unplayable. But in Fallout 3 for example i can barely notice it. I have tried disabling AI on ati, refresh lock , taking forced anti analising off from CCC. And i have ran out of ideas to try.
Fences even in CCC 3d preview flicker

Thanks in advance.

Image top edges are not level
Greetings from Spain.

Having a bit of a problem with making my rows of images be at the same level at the top.

The CSS sheet (relevant sections included below) uses adapted script from a website (can't remember the name ... but it was ...cooooool !)

The src images are set in standard grid patterns.

Each image has a mouseover behaviour attached to it.

The swapped image causing the problem is an .swf file The problem occurs with gif, png or even jpg's... so I suspect it is a CSS problem)

Now, here is the serious bit ... it does not happen to every single image ... which is really frustrating, of course.

Here is the relevant CSS Script....

.img {
margin-top: 5px;
margin-right: 5px;
border: 2px solid #000000;
margin-left: 5px;

.thumbnail {
position: relative;
z-index: 0;

.thumbnail:hover {
background-color: #FFFFCC;
z-index: 50;

.thumbnail span { /*CSS for enlarged image*/
position: absolute;
padding: 5px;
left: 50px;
border: 1px dashed gray;
visibility: hidden;
color: black;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: normal;
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
caption-side: left;
font-size: medium;
top: -100px;

.thumbnail span img { /*CSS for enlarged image*/
border-width: 0;
padding: 0px;
.thumbnail:hover span { /*CSS for enlarged image on hover*/
visibility: visible;
left: 185px;
top: -100px;

For the past few months, my Windows 7 system has a minor problem drawing the edges of windows, as shown here:

(see the junk on the left and right edges of the frontmost window).

I've updated my Nvidia drivers, but it hasn't changed anything. I've updated the Windows OS. I've just ignored the problem, but seeing as I'm not insanely busy at the moment, thought I'd spend some time trying to fix it.

Interestingly, if I try to grab a sceenshot of the problem using the Snipping Tool, as soon as I load the Snipping Tool app, the problem instantly goes away. But I managed to grab that sceenshot using the trusty old Print Scrn key. Also, if I move the offending window, it gets redrawn correctly. The problem seems to be random and not consistent.

Any suggestions anyone? My graphics specs are:

Nvidia Quadro 4000 driving a 27" Dell via DisplayPort and a Samsung SyncMaster (1680x1050px) via DVI. I also have an Nvidia GeForce GTX580 installed, not connected to any monitors (I use this for its CUDA processing for graphics acceleration in After Effects, Cinema 4D and Blender).

This also brings me on to another question - if I go directly to the Nvidia website to download new drivers, should I select drivers for the Quadro or the GTX580 card? Or does the same driver work for both cards?



A:Corrupt edges on windows

I would choose a card and pull the other. They are each designed for 2 seperate purposes.

Get the latest drivers for that card and do a custom clean install.

That should fix the problem.

I would stick with the 4000 for your purposes

Quadro 4000 ?

Get the driver directly from nvidia, not windows update.

hi, dont suppose anyone can help. ive just got a inspiron 560 with 23" hd lcd dell monitor, all stock items from Dell. i have been using the AVG connections for my monitor, but decided to get the HDMI Lead. when i connnected that up i noticed that the desktop no longer fits the screen fully as it did with the VGA. there is about a 20mm gap around all the edges. also i did't really notice a signifignant improvement in picture quality! strange.
but my main goal is to somehow get the desktop to fully cover my screen, any ideas?
i've gone through the steps of screen resolution, and have selected the optimal settings offers (1920x1080). it did not offer me any larger options, and maybe i need 1920x1280? thanks for any help

A:20mm gap around all the screen edges

i think you might have a 1920x1200 monitor... is there a way to find the model number and post it here?

it should only have black edges on the top and bottom though if thats the case, its weird that they are on all 4 sides
