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.

I have recently purchased a 6th gen x1 carbon. It is the model with a 512gb ssd and 16gb of ram. I am planning a setup for my dorm room that definitely could use some work. There are a lot of peripherals going into this so bear with me. My main question through explaining this is if there is a way to streamline the setup and make it more cost efficient.  I am planning to major buys with this setup, the thinkpad ultradock and an Egpu. Regarding the Egpu, it will be a GTX 1070 mounted in a Razor Core V1. My question is I feel like having both the dock and core is unnecessary. I ideally would like to come into my room and put my X1 straight into the dock, which will be closed and probably upright next to the Egpu. Where I see the problem is that I could just as easily do the setup without the dock and instead plug the Egpu into the TB3 port every time I get home, and simply have the peripherals connected to the Egpu housing. One of the pieces that is making me question the setup is I also intend to have an external SSD that will stay in my room with the Egpu and will store my video games to save space on the internal drive for classes and regular programs. I have been told that the SSD and Egpu cannot share the same port as there would not be enough bandwidth to support the two for how I intend to use it, mostly gaming. So here are a couple questions I would like answered. 1. Should I even bother with the Ultra Dock if I am getting the EGPU2. What would be th... Read more

Hello, I'm fairly new to the forums as well as building computers. I currently use a Lenovo Ideapad V570 and would like to play games that require a better graphics card other than the Intel (R) HD Graphics 3000. The game I would like to try and play is a new game called Overwatch, that can be run by these cards. Reading other posts/forums/articles, I know that I need a graphics card, bplus board, and psu. But I don't know what to buy with a $400~500 budget and whether it'll work with my laptop. I would like to have some suggestions about which affordable components to get for the GPU. For the graphics card, I am honestly okay with anything as long as I can play Overwatch on it (it just looks so good to play haha...) Thank you!

I'm thinking of getting rid of my desktop (it wasn't that strong to begin with) and repurposing the graphics card (Galax GTX 650ti Boost) to be used with my T430. I have been looking at the EXP GDC Beast (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0725B6L99/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A28H1T1RM3KZ58&psc=1) but I have a few reservations.  1.

I have recently purchased a YOGA 920 and a HP Omen egpu enclosure. I am having problem connecting it to my laptop.
 
First, I tried both port, there's the sound of connect and disconnect, and nothing shows on the laptop, and the laptop is not charging.
 
I have tried with power cable connected, and now it was connected. The egpu still was not charging (no power delivery), and it only works one port 2 (port closer to touch pad) with charger connected to port 1. If I switch them, the laptop goes blue scree. I can remove the power after it is connected but then there is no power supply.
 
It is kind of similar to the issue as MrKnowNothing https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/YOGA-920-Thunderbolt-3-Port-No-devices-fou....
 
I have tried different drivers but all of them do not work. I have updated BIOS and Type-C firmware from Lenovo to the most recent version.
 
One more thing. Is it normal that thunderbolt controller is not showing up in device manager when nothing is connected?
 
I have tried it with my friend?s xps, it works perfectly, basically plug and play.
 
I think it is not supposed to work like this and the egpu should have power delivery to my laptop. Even if there is no power delivery, it should still connect without power adapter connected. Is this hardware problem or driver problem? Is there anyone else have similar problems?
 
Thanks!

Welcome Lloyd12341. Could you access the BIOS (Press F1 when the laptop is booted up - POST), and check if the HD Audio is enabled? 2. If it is enabled, reload optimized default and restart. (Remember to change boot to UEFI if you have changed to it before fresh installing of Windows 8.1)3. Where do you download the driver? From Lenovo Support or Realtek Support Web?

Hello guys. My ThinkPad 450S was all working fine until I switched it off last night before going to sleep. On wake-up I tried to switch it on and find it not responding. I tried to plug the power adapter only to find it not responding too (normally on plugging the power adapter, the red light on lid's ThinkPad flashes and the green light on the power buttom also flashes). This morning they were all dormant when I plug in the power adapter. Before I switched it off, the batteries were full (100%) as it has two batteries internal and external one. I didn't try to open it or do anything about it, may be this evening. What might be the problem and possible solution to it? Please help me out.  Regards, Cathbert.

Hello. I have a new T450s with Windows 10.   I hit F4 and the amber light goes on showing the microphone is muted.  Problem is that it "looks" muted but it is not.  I have also gone in through the software to mute and it lights up the F4 buttton.. However, it doesn't actually mute the microphone.   So I can never mute the mic..  Is there a fix for this? I see others have had this problem in the past.Thank you.

A:Cannot mute microphone with new lenovo T450s

Same problem with an old E330. The problems started when upgrading to Windows 10 + Realtek HD Audio Drivers (or the Lenovo Realtek Audio drivers, just rebranded). Something in that combination breaks the microphone's ability to be muted by software. The button works ok, the On Screen Display shows the icon and it's shown as muted however still works.Muting it manually from within programs which use the microphone works as well, as does uninstalling the Realtek drivers and going forth with the default Windows 10 drivers (but then there's a loss of functionality with the sound - options).

A customer brought in the their Lenovo Thinkpad 450s because their screen was failing.They already had purchased a new screen and gave me the e-mail confirmation from the order that showed that it was the correct screen that they needed.However, the new display is still black.When I hook up an external monitor, nothing but a mouse pointer shows.But I can connect to the external monitor if I power on the laptop and then immediately close the lid.The external display then shows the desktop.But then I lift the laptop lid, the laptop screen is still black. Even when I change the display settings to extend the desktop.  There was one brief occurrence with the new screen, where I saw a very faint lenovo logo appear when the splash screen loaded. But then it went completely black again. And has not done even the faint image since, it was just a fluke occurrence.And when I shine a flashlight, I still see no display. While the external monitor is displaying the desktop and I then reopen the laptop lid, the laptop screen is recognized as being there. ( Display settings, shows monitor 1 and 2 ).But the laptop screen is still black. Any thoughts? Is there a lid sensor or magnet that activates the screen? I can't find anything.

I've spent the better part of 2 days trying to figure this out for my boss, she's mucked up her PC and I'm drawing blanks. She reported to me that her keyboard stopped working, and external keyboards "would not sync" either.  She works remotely, so I had her send me the PC.  Upon receiving, I was able to get USB keyboards to work, where she'd tried 3 (one brand new) and failed.   However - I still can't solve the laptop's internal keyboard.  It appears to be entirely unresponsive, but the FN light does work, so it's getting power.  When opening the on-screen keyboard, I see that: CNTRL and ALT are being recognized.  Escape is acting as the function lock/unlock.  B, S and K keys are also being recognized, but as other characters, like Scroll lock and ALT+Scroll lock.  No other keys are recognized. I've checked languages, deleted and reinstalled drivers, system restored to an older point where the keyboard did work, and a few other things I've read suggestions on, to no avail.  I'd say by now I've been through 15 different posts from Windows, Lenovo, other support sites, and have had no luck with any suggested remedy.  Anyone have any better/other ideas?  We're now out of the T450S, only have T440S in stock, and considering the improved touchpad of the T450, and her expanded memory, I don't want to downgrade unless absolutely necessary.  I'd like to fix the 450. Thanks
