Preferred Solution: Info on Thin Laptop?

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'm attempting to utilize the Asset Tag located in the Bios as the Host Name for the device.  I found in the forum how to script this, however, when I enter into the Bios I'm unable to update any of the System Information settings.  I've tried the Cntl+A but as soon as I hit it it just closes out of the window (window says "Press Any Key to Continue" at the bottom).  Any assistance would be appreciated. Matt

I have a Samsung NP350V5C-A02UK and it is a great laptop. However, recently I have noticed a thin black border around the screen. I couldn't get a good picture with my camera but it looks very similar to this picture http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3519/t/19434351.aspx however, it is just a little thicker on my screen. I am not sure if it was there since I bought the laptop however, I am pretty sure it wasn't. Could any one please tell me how to fix this or if this is normal on all laptops.
Any replies will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:thin blue line on laptop screen

Hi Kerberg, Can you try the following troubleshooting steps to see if it's hardware/software issue: - Connect the notebook to an external monitor to see if the line appears on the external monitor. - Go into BIOS by tapping "F10" key during boot up and see if the line appears on your main display. If it doesn't occur in BIOS, the hardware is good. We will have to focus on video drivers- onboard and discrete card. If the line appears on the screen, please call 800-334-5144, say notebook and then zbook through the promot. Thank you, -Tenzin

I have an HP Pavilion N5425 laptop, 14.1" LCD TFT (Toshiba) that works fine but 1 complaint:

About 1/4 way across the screen (from left to right) there is a thin blue line running from top to bottom.

It started very faintly but grew continually worse and is now a "permanent" feature.

The screen and laptop are fine otherwise, and I've been able to check all internal connections and and component seating. But the this hasn't corrected the problem.

I can replace any peice, but what part is it? Screen? Cable? Video Card?

When I change resolutions, the line stays in the exact same place on the screen.

When I unplug the cable from back of the screen (leaving the invertor connected) the screen remains on and show a plain white field with no blue line.

Using the video-out from the laptop, the line does not appear when hooked to a TVs video-in. (I do not have a proper monitor to try this with.)

Gently moving the cable seems to have no effect. But there is a good length of it held still under the power-button pcb when the laptop is re-assembled enough to turn it on.

Anyone have any experience like this and have an idea as to which part to replace? Any more suggestions to try?

A:Thin vertical line on my newly bought laptop

It could possibly be due to a faulty data cable and at worst the screen itself. Only solution would be to have it serviced by a Lenovo technician as it is most likely hardware related.

Had IBM Thinkpad 600E fixed under warranty for faulty screen (which had ceased to work) - problem turned out to be faulty motherboard, and motherboard was replaced.
Since getting the laptop back, there is a thin (about 4mm) vertical grey band down the entire screen which obliterates whatever is behind it. This line is about a cm in from the left hand side.
the band comes on from start up...ie through the black POST screen, and if operating in DOS - the same. The correct drivers and refresh rates, etc were already loaded. OS is Win98SE.
Wondering if it could be caused by something simple like a loose cable?
The reason I'm asking is that I'm in Sydney & have to send the laptop back to Melbourne to be fixed....if it is something that has happened in transit, there's no point sending it back to have the same thing happen again. Any ideas much appreciated.

A:Thin grey vertical band on laptop screen

That could be a physical flaw in the screen, but hopefully it's just a loosened connection in the wiring involved.

It probably did happen in transit, since the repair techs would have noticed and called you if they saw it.

You could have a local tech try to check the wiring first, but you'll probably have to send it to Melbourne again. If so, use a bigger box and ship it wrapped in something big and soft like a down-filled winter coat or quilt. You might also want to insure the parcel for the round trip if your postal system or courier company offers the option.

Random Blue Thin/Dotted Lines on My HP Laptop Screen

I was recently transfering files to my new laptop, and uninstalling programs on my old laptop when I suddenly got thin blue lines randomly on my old screen in dark or black areas (see images). It is not in the same location on the screen depending on what I am viewing.

I hooked an external monitor to my laptop and the image is perfect. Another odd thing is when I screen capture the bluelines and view the image file on another PC, they do not show.

Hello All--I wonder if I may draw from your vast wellspring of knowledge? ( How's that for sucking up?)
I'm looking to buy a used laptop, but since I've just shelled out almost $10K for a knee operation, (hence the laptop- I'm going to be in bed for a while) money is a little bit tight and I was hoping to spend around $300/400 plus another little, for a wireless setup.
I only plan on using it for the Internet and some racecar data analysis.
So I guess I have multiple questions;
(A)- Can anyone recommend for,or maybe more importantly,against certain brands/models?
(B)- Any thoughts on size, specs, etc?
(C)- Any sites that have the above info on used laptops?
(D)- Is there an easy (read cheap) way to hook this up wirelessly to my existing network? (A D-Link-604 wired cable router with two desktops running Windows Me and XP Home)
(E)- (And finally!)- Any suggestions on where I might be able to buy all this hardware?

Well, thanks for wading thru this long drawn out thing. I hope someone has some ideas.

A:Used laptop info

If web surfing and e-mail will be the primary use of the laptop then everything from an AMD K6 II 500 and up will do. Don't know about racing data, but i assume that's some sort of graph which will not require a lot of video (again , i'm assuming since i never came accross those. My 0-60 is about 9 sec, "certified" by local police )
2. Size, specs already mentioned from AMD K6 II 500 to P3 800-900.
Try to stick with name brands since if the display goes, well at least you should be able to get a replacement.
3. Use the link on this site i.e http://www.googleadservices.com/pag...zXhNHAAA&num=4&client=ca-pub-8168439598877194
or try ebay or pick up the yellow pages and look for used laptops.
4. Cheap way to connect is via 802.11b kits ( pcmcia card and router ) which can be picked from local pc store for as low as $ 40
5. It will take awhile to find it, since 300-400 laptops are not quite that easy to come by. It's not impossible , just be prepared to do a bit of searching.

My daughter is going away to a semester overseas so I got her a laptop. A Dell B120. We are under the gun here with family affairs so I am nervous about not knowing the answer to a few questions before she goes. Hope you can help.

1. The adapter has no switch between 120 and 220 volts. Is is "smart" and makes its own switch-over. I saw in some of the literature that it covers 220 but I can't find the source anymore. Does that mean that the one unit that was provided can go with 220?

2. She is disappointed that her unit does not have wireless capability. I got a model without wireless both for economy reasons and because I didn't realize that it is important to her because she has been promised a "hot" campus. Can I be redeemed? Can her laptop be adapted to link via wireless?

Thanks, Frank

I have a laptop that was given to me my sophomore year in college which was 2 years ago. My junior year my laptop gave up on me, it was a used 2002 hp laptop. My laptop would charge but would not turn on at all. At first I thought it was my port, because sometimes I would have to mess with the charger just for the laptop to charge, but then I thought it could have been my charger for my laptop. I took it to a computer shop to have them look over it and they said that my port was loose/out of which could have been the possible reason of why my laptop was not cutting on. I want to just go ahead and sell my laptop whole or for parts, but I can't get on my computer to erase the information due to it not being able to turn on. Is there anything I can do to erase my information off my laptop?

A:Wipe my info off of my laptop

If the problem lies in something on your hard disk, you could download a Linux Live iso file and burn it to a CD you might be able to boot from it to clear and format your hard disk as a result.

If the problem is anything else you'll have to physically remove the hard disk. You could either simply sell the other parts or could connect it as an external disk to a working computer, and format it from there.

I will start by saying I do not have all the details yet as I am picking up a faulty laptop on thursday, but would like first impressions...

This laptop will not save documents or files to the hard drive. They are there when initially saved, but disappear when the system is next switched on. System restore to before this happened the first time did not solve it.

I am looking at a full format and re-install of windows to try and solve... Any other ideas of something to try before I do that?

A:Laptop HD not saving any info

System restore doesn't work on documents or files.

The laptop is probably running a scheduled format or something. Keep an eye on it as it shuts down and starts back up again. It should be noticeable that it's doing something different.

I have 2 laptops-

Lenovo V570
HP Pavilion DV4T-1400

Lenovo V570 - Its not booting up. I tried Lenovo Bootable Diagnostic USB Tool. And ran all the scans. It showed FAN not available (it seems FAN is working fine as I can feel the air from the side & the laptop is not heating too) & bad sectors in HDD.
I am thinking of replacing the HDD with HP laptop HDD to see if Lenovo boots fine. Can I do this & any harm to HP HDD or the data on HDD doing this?
I dont know much about hardware. Can anyone tell me if both the laptop has same type HDD & the replacement can be tried?

A:Laptop HDD Replacement Info/Help

Laptop HDD's are 2.5" sizes, so they will work on any other laptop as they are all 2.5" and SATA.
You can put the faulty hard drive into a 2.5" USB enclosure to connect it to your HP laptop to access/backup the data.

If the Lenovo does not boot up and there are bad sectors it's probably a failing hard drive which is the problem, not the motherboard.

That said, yes you can put the HP hard drive into the Lenovo, just make sure the SATA connections are firm.

A:modem and info. on laptop


Your laptop is about 4 years old. If it runs Win95, it most likely has a PCMCIA slot or two on it...look for a door that looks like something narrow would slide into it. This is what I would get if it were mine. A PC card modem with DPI...digital phone interface...capability. You say you travel some and would probably want to connect to the internet no matter where you are. I have a modem in my laptop that is 3 modems in one. It will connect to any regular analog phone, any digital/PBX line...such as from an office or hotel where you have to dial a 9 to get an outside line, and it is also a cellular modem you can use with most handheld cellular phones. Its a bit more pricey than a regular PC card modem, but it compares nicely with most external modems and its very easy to transport because it just sticks in the side of your laptop. Here is the link if this interests you... http://www.connectglobally.com/modems/five_diamonds_DPI.asp

I have a laptop here which is HP G62.

It's been functioning fine. Just from a few days ago, when powered on, it would not display anything on the screen.

So i held the power button to shut it down then did the same to power it on.

Sometimes it would turn on and function fine and sometimes it would not display anything at all on the screen.

The sound is fine when you power it on because it sounds like it is functioning so i have no doubts about that. Just the problem is you don't know when it will display anything on the screen when you power it on.

Im running it now after i tried to get it up and running and im now posting this issue and it's working fine.

Any ideas why it is doing this?

The battery is new, but i was thinking maybe i should clean the hard drive out after backing any important data and maybe formatting the drive then see how it goes. But maybe this is not needed.

If the bios screen doesn't even come up, then it's probably not a hard drive related issue, does anything come on screen at all or does it stay purely black?

That particular series (if it has the Nvidia chipset) had some overheating issues which resulted in graphics chip failure. But there are a few other possibilities to rule out.

Does the image come on screen if you move the screen, or open and close the screen again etc?
