I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

A:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I just bought a N20P for my wife. Great Chromebook, very happy with everything. But she is addicted to games such as Candy Crush and Solitaire. I went to download both from Google App Store but I was unable to open either. When I checked, it didn't give me an option to download it to the Chromebook, only option was for a cellphone which has since been thrown out. Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem?

My lenovo ideapad y700 15isk touch laptop refuses to open up aplications that i assigned shortcut function keys to, microsoft says that you can use icons on the desktop to do this and also in the start menu. I right click on the icon properties and set the shortcut as ctrl+alt+s to open STEAM, yet none of the short cut commands work, i even made sure no other aplications and or fuctions use the same key combinations. I did ficgure out that the lenovo user interface driver was the cause of the issue, but i want to use the shortcut conds with the driver fully functional.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hello I have been fighting issues with my external monitor not turning back on after sleep. I have it set to hybrid mode, I understand the other fix is to set it to discrete mode but my other laptop of the same type does wake up after moving the mouse in hybrid mode. I tried multiple things. 1.) Updated Intel Management Drivers and Software 2.) Updated Thunderbolt Software 3.) Used Graphic Driver Uninstaller and to no avail.  I also installed every update for Windows 10 on their web site. The other fix is to enable and disable the NVIDIA driver in the and that wakes up the HDMI port it seems, but that should not be the case, I would like it to just turn on with the flick of the mouse or button like my other laptop. Is it a failing graphic card of Nvidia or Intels end? I do notice after the monitor sleeps the NVIDIA drivers control panel settings go missing. I already uninstalled completely and reinstalled the drivers but my computer is still having this problem. Are their any suggestions on Lenovo's end or fixes? I bought this laptop from Amazon and I also joined a 3 year support service from them.

A:Lenovo P50 - HDMI External Monitor Not Working After Sleep (My Other Laptop of the Same Kind does)

Have you compared the Power Option settings on the two laptops to see if they match as well?Do the two systems share the same monitor, and if not, how is your monitor configured, does it have an option to set the input source to HDMI vs. automatically detecting the source?When in the mode where the screen does not turn back on, what happens if you press the following key combination Windows Key + Shift + Ctrl + B  (forces a reset of graphics cards) do you hear a beep and your screen wake up?     That key combination sometimes works to wake the monitors, and while not a solution, it may be a work around until you find a permanent one. Best of luck,

I was editing a .cfg file for half life 2 and used the "open with" and click "Always use this program" and checked it, and used Notepad to open it.

It worked fine and I could open the file.
Once I played the game, the "startup videos" would no longer play for ANY hl2 engine game! I knew it was because I changed the default open program.

So, I tried to find the default program the cfg used before I changed it.....
I thought it was Microsoft Outlook, or Express?
Well yeah, I decided to use that, and checked Always use this program..

Obviously it was a mistake..

After that, I wanted to change it again, and used "open with" again.
This time I get a problem.

PROBLEM: The "Always use this kind of program" is now greyed out! ONLY for the cfg file extension and I cant find a workaround! I downloaded a registry that enables the "always use" for every file, but the cfg files remain unchanged! It is still greyed out no matter what - using Microsoft Outlook.

Is there a way to change the default open program to whatever it was way before I decided to edit it?
What should I do to once again to check the "always use"?
Thanks!

First off I have Windows 7 on my PC. I was trying to open an application file in a particular program. So I used Open with> Choose default program> I choose Windows Media Player. But I didn't realize that the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" check box was checked. So now every application file in my computer is a .wma file. This means that can't open anything except real .wma files.

Everytime I try to run a system restore the antivirus program stops it. But I can't turn it off because I can't access it. Everything else in the computer runs fine except for the fact that I can't open application files.

Hi, I have problems with my laptop and would appreciate some help. Pardon my English. ^^

It all started when I went to this unknown site that supposedly was able to watch some drama shows on; apparently, it gave me a virus/trojan that keeps redirecting my google searches on both IE/Firefox. After this, I ran a malwarebytes scan and then an avast scan nothing was found. Now i am getting a spam load of URL:MAL detected from avast and everytime i click scan from avast, i would get Bsod saying Bad_Pool_caller. I stupidly download and installed another AV (AVG Free edition & Adware SE) because i was hoping to uninstall my avast since it kept giving me Bsod. I ran an ESET Online scan before installing avg. It was able to detect 15 TrojanDownload.java. After that i proceeded to restart laptop. Now no programs will run and i cant uninstall anything because it keeps giving me an error saying file either already deleted or window installer not there. My system restore dont seem to work either since it keep saying antivirus is affecting the restoring process.

Hello and welcome to TSF.

If you still need assistance please follow these instructions to get the logs we need.

Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. There are 3 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one. You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.exe
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.com
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr

Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin

If you have problem running those, try these:

iExplore.exe
Rkill.com
uSeRiNiT.exe

Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine, and then try once again to run DDS and GMER.

Note:

You will likely see a message from this rogue telling you the file is infected. Ignore the message. Leave the message OPEN, do not close the message. Run rkill repeatedly until it's able to do its job. This may take a few tries. Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine, and then try once again to run DDS and GMER.

If for some reason the machine reboots, repeat the process. Again, try not to restart the machine.

Right click the dat.reg.txt attachment below, select "save target as"
Save the file somewhere safe, eg. desktop

First, go to:
Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View tab
Make sure "hide extensions for known file types" is NOT checkmarked.

Now, right click the saved file,

Remove the .txt section at the end, so the file now becomes:

You should see the icon change to a Registry file icon.

Now simply double click this dat.reg file to merge it into your registry.

I've also tried a system restore - which I was told would be ineffective, something I found to be true.

I was told to copy some files in the c:/ folder, but since windows explorer crashes before I can get there, such suggestions are moot.

Sometimes running sfc /scannow up to 3 times one after the other is able to fix corruptions. If you have already tried that, then you might consider doing a Repair Install. This tutorial will explain what you need to do:

A few weeks ago I saw the Lenovo K430 on NewEgg while shopping for a new Desktop. I was amazed by the K430?s features and great looks. However, after doing some research I became very baffled about the Power Turbo Switch and the many horror stories about upgrading the graphics card. I called Lenovo Technical Support to talk about possibilities and get advice about the graphics card, a woman answered the phone and informed me she had no idea or information about graphics card; but she recommended I speak to Sales. I was transferred to sales and they too informed me that they knew nothing about the computer or graphics card. I decided to call B&H Photo, the name sounds deceiving but they really are the best with support. The Technical Support told me if I really wanted a great computer I should think about building my own. So today, I embarked on the journey to build my own computer and I want to say thank you to Lenovo. If it wasn?t for Lenovo's extremely bad Tech Support and Sales I would not have built my own computer. Lenovo you are so terrible and clueless, you have inspired me, you have driven me by showing me your lack of knowledge and sense of awareness, the idea that a company has a sales and tech department that knows absolutely nothing about their own product.

Hello,since I bought my new laptop back in Dec 2016 and aside from the fact that I had to struggle a bit with the delivery process that ended up to be a non-issue, I was happy with this machine... Til about three weeks ago. Unfortunately, the return period has expired and since the whole story is not relevant here (other than just venting my frustration) I will just try to turn this into a positive experience by asking and perhaps offering advise out there.My ask is: Does any one out there know if there is a way for me to have similar functionality that an Integrated Microphone Array via an outside device or anything on this machine?

Since I had bought HP laptops in the past which bring it as part of the standard build, I didn't even think (nor did I know) of finding out if this machine had this component. But it doesn't come with it.

Hello, I have the latest windows 10 updates installed. but one day my laptop started to lag. because I usually watch movie and listen to music with my laptop, it ruins my experience of watching and listening. I thought it was because of heavy applications so I used the fresh start tool. and it removed most of my applications and the windows worked properly without any lags until I decided to restart it and again the lags came back. now that I don't have any applications or games that can possibly fill the memory or the CPU, I don't know where the lag comes from. so i'm open to suggestions.thank you
