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.)

There should not be any gap when the laptop is closed but on the right side, there is a decent amount of gap which results in dust and there appears to be a slight bend in the screen. How did this happen and what should I do?

Hi, I have Lenovo U41-70 with 64-bit Windows 7. My Nod32 antivirus is up to date. For more than a year, all Fx keys were working as expected, F1 key muted sounds, F4 key closed current window, etc. However, some time ago the F4 key suddenly started to exhibit very strange behaviour. Instead of closing windows, standard F4 keypress is sent, plus Shift and Win keys are toggled and remain "pressed". (I found this out using windows on-screen keyboard - see attached picture.) Moreover, other strange behaviour can be noticed after F4 is pressed. For example, minimizing a window to tray and opening it again results into a new window of the particular application to be opened, or when a desktop icon is clicked, all icons to the top-left are selected. All of the problems persist from the point the F4 key is pressed until the laptop is restarted or until Shift key is pressed (and it starts again every time F4 is pressed). All other Fx keys are working fine. I have already tried changing the bios hotkey option to "disabled" and then back to "enabled" (the state where Fn key does not need to be pressed to access special Fx functionalities), but the strange behaviour of F4 is back once the hotkey option is enabled again. I also tried plugging an external keyboard - the F4 and Alt+F4 works ok when pressed there. I would like to make the F4 key work as it used to. What can I do to resolve the issue?

Hope somebody can help with this as I've been researching for about a week now...

Macbook pro 15" early 2011 i7 2.0ghz

The issue: magsafe only works intermittently after battery expanded and failed. Its a bit random if I unplug it a few times and jiggle it about it may come on and work as it should..once it's on it stays on....

If it's working and I quickly unplug and replug 95% it will come straight back on.. Its not a short or cable issue in the magsafe..as I've tried 2 new ones so far.. There was no damage liquid or otherwise apart from the expanded battery issue...

Steps taken:

Smc/pram reset

Brand new magsafe (original)

Swapped out dc in board

Brand new battery

Different plug sockets

Different power cable

After trying another magsafe the issue remains.. The best it's been was at my work where it always came on but took between 5-15 seconds. At home I'm trying it and it's just hit and miss. Just hope it isn't logic board smc damage due to the previous battery failure. But then why would it work normally when it does? Could it be the dc in connection on logic board?. In istat the dc in is showing 1.8a and the charger behaves normally when it works..

Any help would be great,. id like to sort this myself so please don't suggest i take it to apple,. thanks in advance,..

Hi,Have been using Ideapad Z410 from past 6 months.  From past week the Laptop shuts down without warning, and the battery level is at 99% or 100%.  Only when the unit shutsdown, and when I start up again, that the battery indicator starts from 0 and goes to 99% or 100% and stays there.  I have also doen the Battery Meter Reset, but of no benefit.What is the problem, and what should I do.Should I claim under warranty ?

A:Idepad Z410 battery always at 99% or 100%

I wouldn't expect much of an answer from them, the same happens to the Z510 I have and it happens to the Z500 models before it, they'll tell you to send it in under warranty but that will not solve the problem as it will happen again after a few months and I need the laptop for work, I didn't buy it so that after half a year I would have to send it away for 2-3 weeks, I bought the thing because it is needed here. They need a battery firmware update but that too is too hard for them to do. These problems are being experienced by people worldwide and I am seriously considering reporting them to watchdog here in the UK. They should not be shipping laptops that have known issues and then offer no fix.

My lenovo idepad 500 (win10) (about 1.5 years old) is sometimes hard to start up. It freezes at the moment when the lenovo logo shows up. I have also some problems with the graphics. Quite often the screen starts flashing, and when that stops the graphics are bad and everything is zoomed in. Has anyone had the same kind of problem and/or how to fix it?

I  bought this laptop lenovo idepad 510-15ISK from a shop in Greece. I added an SSD and upgraded the RAM the same day following sellers advice that the upgrade won't harm the warranty. The same day I detected that laptop were electrocuting me and the next day I returned the product to the seller for replacement. They verified the electric drain and the technician recovered the original HHD and removed the extra ram that I added so as to give it to the official technical support. I have been told that only if the technical support  say that this is a problem they will either replace the laptop or return my money back.It seems though that the technical support changed the motherboard of the laptop (approved that SSD and RAM upgrade didn't harm the laptop) and they don't approve the replacement or my money back. This laptop is no longer a new laptop but a refurbished one!!!!! I have already gone to local authorities for local seller, lenovo and official technical support for trying to cheat me and I am already contacting with local media to raise the issue in the Greek market about the tactics of lenovo. Can you please suggest me any other ways before this goes public not only in Greece but also in more European Countries?

Hi, i just got my Lenovo 510S-14IKB today. Everything is working fine, its super fast in comparison to my old laptop. Only problem is, that the fan seems to run all the time and is making noticable noise. the temperature of the cpu aer all in the range of 20 only the hd was at 34. so normally that are not temperatures where cooling is needed. If i let the notebook idle for 2 min it goes dead silent but starts again even if i just scroll down a homepage. And even if i start programms whicht take more resources, the fan does not get louder.

Hello Everyone in this forum
 
Bought a Lenovo 510 sff desktop, with the sole intention of adding more stuff and upgrading the system with time.
But I found it to be very difficult, and need more information from users here.
 
Firstly: this system came with only 4 gb ram. I have put in 16 gb ram now. Can i put in 2 x 16 gb ram modules to get 32 gb total in this system?
 
Secondly: I thought there would be 4 SATA ports to support 4 drives maximum. But this system is showing only three SATA ports on motherboard; Also the computer case only has place for one HDD, and one slim ODD. Not possible to add another SSD in this place. Is there an option to now remove the ODD and put in a SSD. Terrrible option provided in this SFF.
 
Thirdly: The Windows 10 OS was preinstalled without any media given, in case of OS crashing or getting corrupted, how do i reinstall or repair the OS? Do i have to make any OS backup or recovery media? Where and how is this done?
 
Any solutions or ideas for upgrading the system  given here, will thankfully be received.
 
Regards and thanks to everyone here

Looking into buying the Lenovo 510s, I see "Up to 8GB" listed as supported memory. However, I've done some research and some Lenovo laptops, while they also only support 8GB of memory officially, can be and have been safely upgraded to 16 GB of RAM. My question is: Is this true of the 510s? The CPU specifications page from Intel for the 6200U/6500U both say 16 GB is no problem, and Crucial even has a 16GB dimm listed as "guaranteed compatible" for this model--I'm not sure, though, if this means it will work but only recognize 8 GB or if 16 GB is truly Ok. Is there any reason 16 GB could not be used? Perhaps some motherboard memory controller limitation? I would love to have some input on this before deciding on whether or not to purchase this laptop. Thanks!

Wondering what RAM modules people have upgraded their Lenovo Ideapad 510s (80UV001BUS) with. Looks like it only has one slot and is only upgradeable to 16GB. What about speed and latency? Crucial has different speeds and latency listed. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/ideapad-510s-(14-inch) It has ones at 2133MHz, 2400MHz and 2666Mhz and latencies from 15, 16 and 17. Only a $14 difference between their cheapest 2133MHz and their most expensive 2666MHz. Newegg sells other modules at the 2666MHz speed that Crucial says is the max that seem compatible. Patriot Viper 16GB DDR4 2666 PV416G266C8S at CL18 and HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4 2666 HX426S15IB2/16 at CL15. The numbers make the HyperX look like the best for this laptop with it being $14 more than Crucial's fastest module. Newegg also has 2800MHz and 3000MHz offerings too. Does this chipset support those speeds? The 2800MHz being made by Patriot and the 3000MHz made by G.SKILL. The latency on the G.SKILL module is CL16, so pretty good but considerably more expensive. $27 more than Crucial's fastest and $13 more than HyperX's fastest and its on sale right now (retails at $180.99). Whats the fastest RAM the Intel HM170 chipset can support and will this laptop allow it? Intel shows that the i7-7500U supports up to 32GB memory size and DDR4-2133, LPDDR3-1866, DDR3L-1600 memory types, yet Crucial says it can support 2666MHz, feeling confused. My main goal is to p...

I bought lenovo y500 two days ago in INDIA.  In the lenovo energy management system 8.0, I found a battery calibration option and decided to do it.  The steps mentioned there were as follows. 1. Full charge2. Full discharge  The process performed full charging followed by complete discharge of the battery which caused the laptop to shut down.   When I tried turning on my laptop, it could not start.  The battery charging indicator LED wasnt switched on even though the power cord was inserted into the laptop.  I could start the laptop only after removing the battery.   Once the laptop was on, I inserted the battery back in and it began to charge.  After about 50% of charging, I removed the power cord and inserted it again.  Now the battery couldnt resume charging.  I again had to shut down the laptop and repeat the above steps of inserting battery after switching on the laptop without battery.  Only then the battery would resume charging. After this, I decided to allow the battery to charge to 100%. But, the charging remained stuck at 99% and could not fully charge the battery.  When I removed and reinserted the power cord, the same problem persisted of battery not resuming charging. Please help me with this problem.  I read on few forums about uninstalling microsoft ACPI which supposedly solves this issue.  However, ACPI returns back after I restart my laptop.I also tried switch...

A:LENOVO Y500 BATTERY NOT CHARGING AFTER USING LENOVO'S BATTERY GAUGE CALIBRATION

 
 
ADMIN Edit - While the original post below is marked as the solution, because service will be required if the battery will no longer charge after performing a battery reset, I am adding a Lenovo update here to confirm.   Normal operation will allow the battery to relearn its capacity characteristics when using the battery reset function.  Typically this is not needed in normal use..   Batteries are equipped with a safety feature that will permanently disconnect them (like a fuse) if cell imbalance or an internal short is detected.   This tends to be statistically infrequent, but also normal, and would require a battery replacement.  (Batteries have a 1 year warranty).   This battery feature can also  produce similar results to what is being discussed in the thread, so it should first be considered by service.   This particular  forum discussion also involves a situation that could affect a limited number of systems, and could lead service to replace the system board during warranty.  
 
If your system experiences these symptoms, please contact service during the warranty period.

"There is no current identity.

Hiya

Just to be safe, I would do a quick virus scan:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Also, go here and get SpyBot:

http://security.kolla.de/index.php?l...&page=download

click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

Every morning my PC boots normally then freezes after about five minutes. I power it down completely then re-start it and it usually then operates correctly for the rest of the day.

Rarely there are BSODs with inconsistent messages - by which I mean that these are rarely the same,- "reference by pointer" being one.

I have cleaned the machine physically, re-seated components, checked for infections, updated drivers, run system file scans, reinstalled windows.. I'm beginning to think that there may be a motherboard issue but would welcome any thoughts.

Just recently every time I change sites I am getting a message saying: "this site doesn't have a security certificate etc" and the site won't load until I click "continue anyway" - maybe there is no connection between the two things, it just seems to have started since this browser information problem.

I have run all the usual security checks: AVG, Spybot, Microsoft AntiSpy, etc.

I have also cleared the browser of cookies and temp files.

If I go to the same sites with another browser there is no problem.

There is something anti in the browser because when I try to use my email account it shows message panels saying "can't continue due to xyz", these panels carry adverts and are nothing to do with the email providers - I have checked with them. If I use another browser such as Firefox or Opera there is no problem.

Apart from this, everything is working very well - I did get hacked and this brought windows to a standstill, but with help from this site I have got things running good again, well 95% ...just this browser to sort out.

Hello everyone.

Every once in awhile the computer starts freezing up and I can not do things such as open task manager or close window, programs will stop responding and then I will be unable to do anything except move the mouse because explorer shuts down and I can not start it again. Or it will begin doing it and I will restart but when I do it hangs at the windows logo when booting and will not start in safe mode or boot off the system repair disc. It will either just hang at a windows logo when I try to boot from the disc or load but when I click repair computer it hangs again and never loads the repair segment. I am pretty much stuck until I turn it off for about seven minutes then turn it back on and then it will allow me to get into system repair, perform a system restore and ect.

Any ideas on what is doing this? A virus maybe? A bad install of windows? Ram? I need some help narrowing this done and getting it solved before it does some damage.
I run:

Acer Dual core
3GB Of ram
Windows 7
Nvidia graphics card.
(I apologies for the lack of computer spec details. I would check exactly what my specifcs were if the computer was not in the process of being turned off so I could system restore it...)
Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

In the last few days whenever i load something or try to install something A window opens saying Please wait while ATI Catalyst Control Center configures itself and then it tries to start installing the control center although it is already on the computer.
This means that it is almost impossible to uninstall or reinstall anything most of the time on this computer.
I think it started when ATI tried to update itself and it couldnt finish it for one reason or another.

If someone could help me with this problem it would be more than appreciated as it is becoming extremely annoying!!

Thanks

Uninstall the ATI driver completely (http://ati-software-uninstall-utility.updatestar.com/). Then reboot and download and install the current driver and see if that helps.

It works fine on IE 7.0 but not with IE 6.0.
The problem is a little javascript enebled when we select another page of a Datagrid... It extracts a lot of data so the Datagrid "AllowPaging" of Visual Studio is "true".

Hi,

I have a toshiba laptop which is behaving strange.

1) For example, in MS Word when you type 'h' - it pops up with Find and Replace with letter K in "Find What"

2) Close the box and type h again and it locks the computer. I have to log back on again

3) Type 'y' and it inserts 0=7y5ou

the next time i type 'y' it inserts 78y5
I have scanned the computer for viruses - but have found none!

So what could it be?

Please help.

Thanks

I am having difficulty with RDP and was hoping for some suggestions. I cannot login to RDP outside the network, only from inside the LAN. All addresses are port forwarded in the router. The machines that I am trying to connect to have Win 7 x64 Ultimate. Here is the scenario and what I have done to troubleshoot:

1) All computers have static ip addresses on the local area network.
2) I have used an online port check tool and the problem I am getting is that ports 3389 and 3390 (the ports I have designated as RDP listenting ports) are showing closed.

I know that the ports showing closed can be due to a few factors, so here are the tests that I ran:
1) I can log into RDP successfully from inside the LAN, so I assume that the problem is not with any type of software firewall configuration. These computers do all have Kaspersky Internet Security on them, but I have no problems connecting inside the netwok.
2) I thought that the router wasn't properly forwarding port addresses so I took the router to another location (Different ISP) and found that RDP works just fine there.
3) Now I'm wondering if the ISP is blocking the port ranges so I took a laptop back to the original location and it works just fine so I know that its not an ISP issue. The only difference I can note is that the laptop (computer that RDP works on), is a 32bit Win 7 Ultimate machine and the other two are x64. Aside from that, all software and internet security settings are the same.

A:Strange RDP Behaviour

Since your testing methodology is solid and you’re certain that you have 3389 - 3390 open on the router, it may be difficult to get any help with this. I know it’s a long stretch but I guess I’d go to Kaspersky support hoping that their 64bit implementation of the firewall is different from the 32 bit and they have found others experiencing the same issue.
Maybe completely uninstalling Kaspersky on one on the 64bit machines and testing again is good option.

Please post back when you find the solution.
