Yoga 710 15" Lid Closes crooked/out of alignment.

Q: Yoga 710 15" Lid Closes crooked/out of alignment.

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!

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

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.

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, 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.

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?

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.

select partition 1

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?

Thank you very much.

I'm not completely sure, but I think that since your first partition's offset is good the 2nd and 3rd are ok also, since they follow the first one.

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:

is it all looking good now?

A:SSD alignment - do i am done it right?

In elevated command prompt type..... Diskpart

hit enter

then type...... list disk

then type.......select disk x

replace x with the disk you want to check

then type........list partition

hit enter

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

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

Hello there, I have an Intel 520 series 120GB SSD. I ran AS SSD which told came up with '31 K - Bad'.

I used an upgrade copy of Windows, so I installed Windows XP to the SSD first and then used the Win7 upgrade disc to do a clean install.
I read Win7 is suppose to set the correct alignment, but I deleted the partition before install, so I'm not sure why it was set 31K.

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:-

Just a little information about this tool.
My C: drive was not correctly aligned. It wasn't a big deal. Everything worked fine.
But, being a geek like the rest of you, I decided to try PAT and see if it really works.

First off, it's like $30. Not that much, but it's a one time tool.
It comes with a .exe file to create it's own rescue disk. Basically, it puts everything back to the way it was before it started. Thankfully, I didn't need it.

The application installed with no problem at all, and it does allow you to do an analysis on all connected drives, including external USB drives. It graphically shows your drives, and by color, shows which, if any need alignment. Green-good, Yellow-bad.

When you select to align, it reboots to a Pre-windows full (low res)screen showing the progress of the alignment.

My 120gb SSD took approximately 20 minutes to process.
It rebooted the PC, and opened the application and reported it as successful.
I had no other partitions on this drive, hidded or otherwise.

I ran Crystal Disk Mark before and after the alignment.

After reports nearly a doubling of the 4k and 4k-64thrd writes, and an almost 33% increase in the 4k reads.

Overall, I'd give it a thumbs up

Hi, I work at a business that prints a lot of small cards (2.5 by 3.5). These cards can be printed on a computer printer by fitting 9 on a 8.5 by 11 page.

The problem is that these cards have fronts and backs. When I try to print on the front of the page and then the back (either automatically or manually) there is always a milimeter or two difference that throws off the front of the cards with the backs. This hair difference is probably created by the rollers inside the printer or other extremely minute factors. It would be entirely unnoticeable in normal printing jobs. But for these cards, it has to align and print in exactly the same way every time.

I went to Office Max to buy a high end printer that could do this. I brought my laptop and tried printing the cards on several high end models. And NONE were precise enough. They were always off by a milimeter or so. The same printer would sometimes get more precise and other times less precise. That's the problem - it's unpredictable so I couldn't even work around it.

I know there are card manufacturers with industrial printers that could make these cards, but for now I'm looking for a home solution.

So my question is is there a computer printer I can buy that would print with absolutely perfect alignment, every time?

Let me know if I was not clear enough in my question.

I have a Transmission line that goes from one location to another. Each location has a name and a number. Every line is identified by the location it is coming from to the location it is going to. The lower number of the two locations is alway where it is coming from. I receive many cases with a lot of lines, but they might not always contain the same number of lines.

In my example I attached I would like Excel to automatically add a line to the September 2008 section so that the line 3z 4t lines up with the same line in August 2008. I sometimes have to deal with over 20 sections with up to 50 columns and 20,000 lines and it is difficult to go through and line them up to compare data. A new line could come in later or a line could go out of service, so I can't necessarily think I will have 3 lines, like in the case, just because my first case has three. I think access does this well, matching up records, but I would like to do this in excel. I think I described it well enough but if I could provide further explanation please ask.

Okay this is just making me upset.

I have a user who has a Lexmark Z23. They have XP SP2 installed and had to bring it in for service (someone tried to upgrade to SP2 before but did not have admin rights). This is connected VIA a USB cable.

You know how when you disconnect a printer from one USB port and you plug it into another you get the printer driver (Copy 1) and the other shows (Offline)? Well this happened here and the woman is flighty so I decided..."Okay I'll remove both drivers have her turn it off and let it refind the printer."

Well upon reinstalling it asked for drivers (and said no drivers found when I said no internet and install automatically) which was strange because since it was loaded it should have reloaded what was there. I could not find drivers on the PC anywhere (usually when I load PC's I copy the drivers to a foldero n the HDD in case a reload is needed but I didn't build this PC) so I went to -


I downloaded it and uncompressed it and pointed the Add/Remove hardware wizard to the files and off it went installing.

I then rebooted the PC verified the printer was there and connected. I went to print a test page and got an alignment prompt saying I could either conitinue without an alignment and continue to get the prompt box or I could do the test and cancel the job I wanted to print. I tried to continue without the alignment a... Read more

Is your lcd panel rotated slightly?  I figured out why and it's a design flaw I am the it tech at my company and I am testing out the x1 5th gen as our next set of work comps. As I am the guy who's going to service and repair them all. (that's if I recommend it)  What I found is that the lcd panel is held in by nothing. No screw or double sided tape  The slim front bezel which is stuck on using double sided tape is the only thing stopping it popping out The lcd is aligned with 6 soft foam tabs and 2 hard tabs 2 on top, 2 left side, 2 right side and the 2 hard tabs on the bottom  So you can see why screens have alignment issues  That's not all. The cable that connects to the lcd is relatively thick for the bottom of the bezel  so it pushes the screen up from the left bottom corner.  Your screen might be rotated clockwise by a degree or so It drove me nuts. 2 lenovo tech can't fix it. Made it worse.   But I have a solution.I chopped up some high density foam and placed it on the top left or right corner of the frame to punsh the lcd corner down so it's level again   And you don't need to remove the whole front bezel. If you do you will need to reapply the double sided tape. So just heat the corner you need to peel off and insert the extra foam.   Lenovo I like the speed of the laptop but 2 screws would have easily fixed the problem. Plenty of room on the ... Read more

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.

A:alignment fault problems

Hi Leonard !

Do you have SP2 installed ? Have you installed all the latest critical updates from Windows Update ?

In IE click the question mark menu => about internet explorer and tell us which version you're using.

Have you installed any third party plugins ? If you have IE7 then go to tools => manage add-ons and disable them all.

Do you have any internet related toolbars or softwares installed, like the google or yahoo toolbar, some download manager, ... ?

Does the problem also happen with firefox ? If not then stick with firefox, many consider it a better browser than IE.

I'll move your thread to the internet explorer support section where you'll have better help.
