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.)

My girl just got herself a A6-3400M notebook. It comes with AMD Radeon HD 6520g + AMD Radeon HD 6750m Dual Graphics. I'm having a hard time understanding how they work. Do I have to enable the crossfire somewhere or they're already crossfired out of the box? Is there any kind of setting where I would decide which gpu is primary/secondary or that's just not up to me to decide? According to msi afterburner, during a game session(Trine), the only gpu being used is the 6520g, while the 6750m just sits there, doing nothing. Last question, and perhaps the most important: when downloading drivers on AMD's website,
http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/amd-catalyst/pages/catalyst.aspx

Under "find a driver" tab, after choosing "notebook graphics" on the first field, should I select "A-series APU" or "HD Radeon Series" on the second field?

Guys, I'm completely lost here. Any light on the subject would be most welcome. In the meanwhile, I'll try to get her more demanding games and see if we can wake up the 6750m.

Thanks in advance

Hey Everyone, I've recently noticed my laptop slowing as I played games like h1z1 on the lowest setting. Eventually, I would get error messages about my GPU when the game would crash. I noticed my drivers were out of date and SLI was also not enabled. I have since updated the drivers and enabled SLI but I still get many of the same problems.  The laptop has two GeForce GT 750M's. I downloaded MSI afterburner and it shows both graphics cards at 135/405MHz at rest. But while gaming, the second graphics card remains at that same amount and relatively the same temperature while graphics card number one goes to about 1058/2499MHz and 75-90 degrees C temperatures. I've also taken out the ultrabay with graphics card number 2 out and put it back in to make sure it wasn't loose. I honestly don't know what any of the data really means, but I'm really hoping to get this fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Let me know if I can provide any more information!

I am trying to install a windows 7 / XP dual boot on a Lenovo 550P I recently purchased. I have had no problems setting up a new partition and formatting it, but whenever I try and install XP on it, I get partway through the installation process and always get a blue screen of death. It tells me that there is a hard drive error.

To test this, I installed a copy of Vista 64 on the partition with no problems. I wiped the drive and started again with XP and had the same problem.

I am now wondering if there is an incompatability between XP and the hardware in my system. The system specs are:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 720QM(1.6GHz)
Chipset: Intel PM55
HDD: 500 GB
Memory: 4 GB

I am wanting the XP OS so I can use my old 32 bit compilers. I have considered reformating the entire drive and making it an XP machine, but do not know if there is an intrensic incompatibility between XP and the hardware.
thanks.

A:Lenovo laptop dual boot problem

welcome to sevenforums!
Where did you get your windows xp cd? If you downloaded that cd from utorrent, there is a small chance that the cd isn't bootable or corrupted.
Also, I have had similar experience on my HP g70. It wouldn't install windows xp no matter what I try. I cannot run the installer from windows of course (application hard block) and whenever it boots up, it would have a disk warning.
I think that some manufacturers include something in their bios to make sure the system is stuck with vista or beyond, or that perhaps, the new hardware available in the nine years since xp made its entrance, made the xp incompatible. I mean, can your xp recognize your cpu or chipset?
Perhaps the only possible method would be to run xpfrom a virtual machine.
Judging from your system configuration, virtualization wouldn't be that bad, it would run pretty well
Thus, my suggestion would be to install windows 7 and simply run it from XP Mode. For that, you will need a copy of windows 7 professional or ultimate (tad bit more expensive than home premium). Or you can buy a home premium and install something like virtualbox.
Seriously xp, is more trouble than its worth. Even if you manage to install it, you will need a TON of times getting all the drivers for it. Xp doesn't have generic or native drivers so you will need a flash drive to store the drivers lol. Windows 7, however, has generic drivers for almost all modern hardware, so you will ahve a better "out of box" exp... Read more

Hello Sirs and Madames,

Kindly help out a lost person if you have time.

Situation:

I have a Lenovo Z500 laptop which I installed with Windows 7 Professional (x86) and a Windows 8.1 Professional (x64).
I installed all my work programs in Windows 7 and my gaming environment is at Windows 8.

Problem:

Some of my work programs are starting to have bugs. some Visual Basic stuff with my autocad have not functioned well like before when I first set this up. I want to reformat only the Windows 7 OS without affecting the Windows 8. I already did this once before but I stupidly reformatted my Windows 8 OS in the process.

Is there a possibility that I can format only the windows 7 without affecting the Windows 8 OS?

Hi there,

I have a Lenovo 3000 c100 notebook and have recently installed windows 7 however I don't think my video controller is working at all. I am trying to run football manager 2013 and when xp was on it originally it ran it without a problem however having installed windows 7 it wont even launch.

I have checked in device manager and two items, vga flash memory and vga video controller are both not available. I have tried updating them through device manager but it doesn't find any drivers.

I don't have any other games to test it on so have no way of checking to see if the video card works.

Could someone please help me solve this problem

It sounds like you are using the most up to date BIOS we have posted for that model. Since the BIOS you are using is LEGACY, you will need to make sure the video card you are using supports that type of BIOS and not UEFI only. There are video cards that support only LEGACY, only UEFI, and both.

I know this is kind of the opposite of what most people want to do (and I know this is an old PC). I got a couple old ThinkCentre M90 5498's from work the other day (identical systems) that they were recycling. Serial number of one of them is MJBVBG6 if that helps any. I'm trying to turn one of them into a NAS server and will probably use the other one as some sort of server too (I'm trying to learn web technologies). So these will mostly always be running headless, so I have no need for a power-sucking graphics-card. Plus, the graphics card has a DMS-59 connector rather than a standard VGA/DVI, which was something I hadn't seen before and so I'd need to buy a cable (I'm borrowing one from work now) should I continue to use the graphics card. Unfortunately, whenever I remove the graphics card and turn on the power, I get five long, loud beeps, followed by nothing and no output from the (built-in) VGA (haven't tried the DisplayPort yet). I've gone into the BIOS and set the video settings to prioritize integrated graphics over PCIe.But it hasn't made a difference. I doubt this is a system failure because both machines do the same thing (different, but identical graphics-cards too). I updated the BIOS to the latest as well. Any help is appreciated.

When windows boots without a dedicated video driver it uses a default driver. So if the video card is still working you should still have video.

If not just plug into the onboard video and the same should apply.

Hello,I can't seem to find specific information about this pc related to this topic. I have a client that wants to have a hdmi port and dual monitor installed. I looked everywhere in the bios settings, I tried using a usb-to-vga adapter & and vga, dvi-d cable & vga (this mirrors both monitors, but cannot extend the display). When I changed the settings on the bios to use the built in graphics, it gives me the option to enable multiple monitors but cannot use my pcie graphic card. If i select to use the pcie graphic card, i cannot use the built in graphic ports or the usb-to-vga adapter (it does not see the other monitor) and also if I use the dvi adpater and the vga it mirrors the display. I'm guessing that the bios does not support dual graphic cards but thought of asking here. The reason the client wants this is to be able to connect a projector using hdmi and to have dual monitors.

This behavior is pretty typical on most systems. Generally if you want to run multiple monitors you can do it from the same graphic device, so in this case off the new add-in graphics card. Does the new graphics card not have multiple outputs? What is the exact card you both and what connections do each of the monitors have?

Ive tried to use the onekey recovery service preinatlled onto the laptop. Usually just press the recovery button, next to the power button but pressing this now just boots into the system repair loop.

Does anyone know how I can rectify this?

A:How to re enable lenovo onekey recovery

You can try setting the recovery partition active using partition wizard boot disk, then rebooting to try one key recovery again. There should also be a way to relink recovery to the one key button.

But the factory install is an inferior install to begin with so you'd be better off doing the reinstall in the tutorial under signature picture below.

Hi,            I just brought Lenovo - IdeaCentre 720-18ASU for my school, which requires to use VMware.As I tried to enble AMD-V inside BIOS, I couldn't find any option that allow me to do so. I went to AMD website and found that AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8 core processor does support virtualization. How can I enable this feature? Do I need to return this desktop for exchanging to a new model that will support AMD-V? Thank you very much!

I've seen a lot of people ask the opposite and I tried the solutions given to them in hopes of helping with my problem but they don;'t work. Basically, I want to be able to use the functions of the F1-F12 keys by pressing the Fn key like in other laptops so that I could use the F# keys for something else. I play games on emulators, you see, and the F1-12 keys are for quicksaves (by shift + F1-12 and just pressing the F1-12 to load) which I couldn't use because pressing the F1-12 keys right now would just make them use their functions instead of letting me save my game and it's kind of a problem for me. Can anyone help? The laptop I have is new and I dunno much of how to change stuff. I tried looking in the control panel and everything but there's nothing. Please help?

Hi there, I'm having trouble with my W500. I have connected a display port cable to my monitor and laptop, but it's displaying one screen on both of them. I want to be able to actually have two screens to work with, how can I accomplish this? I try and go into display settings and click detect, but it simply says "Didn't detect another display", which is weird because I have my second display projecting whatever is on my laptop screen.  I have Windows 8.1. Thank you.

Hi, I have a Dell Precision T3620 with only the integrated Intel HD Graphics 530. The motherboard has 2 display ports and an HDMI. I have 2 monitors, both with DVI + VGA inputs. I bought 2 adapters (display port to VGA) but I'm not able to enable both the monitors. The second screen is not correctly identified and remains black. Is it possible to enable both the display ports? I read that Intel HD Graphics 530 has the multiple monitor capability. I've looked for a bios setting too, but I don't see nothing like "enable multiple monitor". Can someone help me? Thanks
