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 am looking for a new laptop. I currently have a X121e and recall it being extremely easy to configure on Lenovo's site. So I decided to look at the X270. However, having had great difficulty even starting to configure it (apparently, Lenovo does not favour Firefox any longer), I'm currently having trouble understanding the choices. The first is the choice between PCIe and SATA PointingDevice. Following some discussion, I gather this has nothing to do with any kind of pointing device, but affects my HDD/SSD choices. OK, so let's see what the PCIe choices give me. I get 5 'first hard drive' options. (Nothing I do gets me a 'second hard drive' option, so not sure about this. Or rather, I almost understand this now I've read the platform specification, the user manual, the hardware maintenance manual and various posts on Reddit. Lenovo do like to make buying a challenge!) Now, however, I've reached the end of my google-fu. Intel 256 GB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe256 GB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 - CapableIntel 512 GB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe512 GB Solid State Drive, PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.01 TB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMeI understand the difference beween 1/2 and 3/4 and 5 is obviously size.

Do the T460s and T460p use the same motherboard? I ask because there is an option for a  "1 TB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe" on the T460s, but not yet showing on the T460p.

What is a SSD?, What are the pros and cons to using it?, How do you use it?, Is it reccomended?, what performance difference does it give?, and finally, could you make a computer with weak processor/graphics card and everything run very fast and play games very well if you have lots of them in one pc?

Could someone explain in laymens terms? For me and so I can explain to other people as I know this is a reasonably new technology and is suposedly 'the future'?

hi all
i am thinking of using a solid state drive for the operating system and would be grateful for any advice can i keep the drive i have now with win 7 home premium, and install another windows 7 (like ultimate): on the solid state drive??

A:Solid state drives

I don't think you can have two instances of Windows using the same license key, even on the same machine (unless you clone them, but then the drives should be identical). So basically you'll have to buy another copy of Windows. Other than that, SSD will make your machine way faster. the only catch is the limited number of write cycles, so I would follow the by now standard advice of moving your cache and temp folders to a RAM disk.

Hey all,

I have been out of the PC building world for a year or so now, just wondering what the newest word about SSD drives are. A year or so ago I remember they were not really up to spec, they had a limited number of read/write cycles and fialed pretty commonly. Is that still true, or have vast improvements been made?

Looking at this drive

It still uses the same sata and power connects. You would need a drive bay adapter unless you want to wire tie it somewhere.

are these faster than a 7200rpm hard drive and are they worth the extra money?
 

A:solid state hard drives

They are much faster than mechanical drives. They are memory speed.

Whether they are worth the money depends on your system. Surprizingly, many people who have tried them have been less impressed than they thought they would be. The speed of a machine depends on many factors. Though drive speed is certainly one of those factors, it is not the only one.

So my take on all this is that putting a solid-state drive in a mid-level machine would be a complete waste of money. But putting them in high-end machines may show spectacular differences. "Instant On" machines with no boot time are certainly on the horizon, and Acer, I think, already has one out or close to it.

This isn't recommended, I know. But would it serve any purpose at all? As far as I understand the matter, aside from the wear and tear issue, whether an SDD is 0% fragmented or 100% fragmented makes no difference to the performance, due to the way the information is read from the disc. Is that so?

I run MS Flight Simulator from an SDD (my O/S is on another SDD too) and I am starting to get some performance issues. Some have recommended I defrag the disc - when I analyse it, it shows 100% fragmentation, but if what I wrote above is true, it wouldn't make any difference. Right??

OK; I'm over my head here... any help?
Have an entertainment computer with W-7 Ultimate (x64) that was working like a champ; prior to the introduction of a Samsung 840 120GB Solid State Drive. [Before the switch over] It has/had a 1.5T HD with the system on it (NTFS) and a 3T HD (GPT- to get the full 3T).

Samsung included a "Magic" program that says: 'Samsung's new Smart Data Migration software takes the guesswork and headache out of moving your operating system to your new SSD." It was not the easy job I anticipated and I wound up resetting my bios to [ON-CHIP SATA TYPE- AHCI] for it to be able to recognize the new SDD.

Wound up reinstalling W-7 x64 and now the computer will not recognize either the NTFS drive or the GPT drive (loaded with data)... as a matter of fact the W-7 program will not load now with the GPT HD hooked up. Disconnect it and it starts fine. The NTFS HD had an Acronis safe-zone on it and with just it hooked up, the system would not load ..and an Acronis warning was stopping it. I had previously removed the partitions and reformatted the drive (NTFS) thinking that I had cleaned it but apparently the safe-zone remained. I am now in the process of wiping the disk and presenting it as 'unallocated space' to see if the SSD System will recognize it.

I have a hunch the solution is not that complicated, it's just waaaay over my pay grade!
Any help please?

This little investigative article will be devoted to the development and changes in the flash memory market. We are going to dwell particularly on the most interesting flash memory application – solid state drives.

In early October the microelectronics standardization body JEDEC held a series of seminars about the prospects of the flash memory market in general and of solid state drives in particular. Flash memory means much more to computer users than memory cards or USB drives. SSDs are not only trendy but also practical. The global economic recession has delayed the arrival of inexpensive flash-based storage devices but specialists do expect them very soon. How soon, exactly? Let's hear what the involved people, the developers of standards, technologies and end products, have to say about that.

In this article we will present the main facts extracted from the keynotes delivered at a JEDEC seminar to show you the big picture of the development of flash memory and its use in solid state drives.

One thing that we must keep in mind is that computers are not the most important application of nonvolatile memory. Flash-based storage devices in all their varieties are actually among the least popular products that use such memory, being only ahead of the car industry in this r... Read more

I have completed a brand new build with all new parts and it goes to BIOS, sees all the components and everything is as it should but when I try installing Windows XP Professional, I keep getting the blue screen saying "A Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer."

I made a bootable disc so that I could run CHKDSK and SCANDISK and that one said that it found errors and tried moving files from the one area over to another and block off the corrupted area and it couldn't even do that because it had said there was physical damage to the drive.

So, I opened the other OCZ SSD drive I have (the exact same one - model, etc..) and tried it with the same error happening. I even opened a new xp professional installation cd because that first one had scratches on the cd, and both installation cd's are giving this error to both of these OCZ SSD drives.

Hi guys.

I have a problem: It seems to me that File History will only back-up files from your system *libraries.* In other words: It can't back-up from one external hard drive to another.

This is very problematic. For instance: What if your main hard drive happens to be small, as it tends to be with many Ultrabooks or Tablets that are installed with SSD drives?

Or what if you have a larger hard drive, but decide to install the OS on an SSD drive, which tends to be much smaller in capacity?

I am a photographer, and I have at least 300 GB of data to back up. It seems File History won't be an option for me if I opt for an SSD drive and install my OS onto it.

I hope there is a way around this limitation. Does anyone have suggestions?

Hello Shane,

If you like, you could add/include the folders that you want to be include in File History to a library of your choice. This way when File History save a version of the files in your libraries, all included folders in the libraries will also be included in File History. The folder will still be located on the other drive, but referenced through the library so that File History is able to save versions of it.

In this discussion, Amy from Lenovo recommends that we purchase Lenovo SSDs if we want thermal management: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/Can-I-add-a-Samsung-950-Pro-NVMe-SSD-to-... The link no longer directs us to a particular model. So I perform a search on the Lenovo site and see (among others) this model: ThinkPad 256GB SAMSUNG PCIe NVME TLC OPAL M.2 SSD http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/memory-and-storage/storage/HDD-BO-ThinkPad-M-2... What is this? A Samsung SSD rebranded as a Lenovo SSD? Would I gain in compatibility with such a drive or not, and specifically regarding thermal management? Also, is there a misprint below concerning the read speed? "ThinkPad 256GB SAMSUNG PCIe NVME TLC OPAL M.2 SSD supporting PCIe 3.0 interface standard up to 4 lanes shows much faster performance than previous SATA SSDs. It's sequential performance is up to 300MB/s for read operation and 1700MB/s for write operation by 4 lanes. Test-Prove 100% Compatible with ThinkPad machines. " That has to be 3000MB/S, right? 

A:Thinkpad-Samsung or Lenovo-Samsung NVMe SSD? What is this?

My impression is that even Lenovo themselves does not have a clue.

I have two Samsung NVMe 950 Pro (MZVKV512) that came preinstalled in a Lenovo ThinkPad P50 running Windows 10 x64. The Samsung Magician (latest v4.9.6) software does not detect the drives as Samsung Brand SSDs and therefore OS Optimization is unavailable (the only option is to run a benchmark). Samsung Magician supports this SSD as I can see users in other forums using the software on their systems (not necessarily Lenovo). I have also installed the Samsung NVMe Controller driver and this is showing in Device Manager. There are no system updates available and UEFI BIOS is up to date (version from the 4th May). Any ideas?

Hello Friends.  I successfully installed a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD as a boot drive just fine.  However, it looks like the Windows 10 NVME driver is being used in place of the Samsung NVME driver.  I saw this post here where it says: "Windows is indicating it is using the NVMe driver for this drive." https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Envy-750se-capable-of-M-2-NVMe-... However I do not know how to determine this myself.  I am using a utility called "AIDA64 Extreme" and it's telling me the driver provider for the 950 is Micrososft and the driver version is 10.0.14393.0.  So, how do I get the 950 to use the Samsung driver instead?  Thanks for any help. 

A:How to tell if Samsung 950 Pro is using Samsung NVME driver ...

Hi, From Samsung tool (Samsung Magician), it shows my machine uses Samsung firmware, no information about driver. It uses Microsoft driver. The tool allows use to check and update firmware but not driver. Regards.
