Hello folks, It is my first time posting on the forums. I wonder if someone could help me figure out *how to* replace a cracked screen on my  S400 touch/model 20283. (The replacement screen is on the way.)I searched the forum without luck and then looked up youtube and found two different tutorials- one for s415 and one for S400/model 20195 (links below), neither of which is my model 20283. Which one of these should I use or is there another way altogether that you can point me to?S400/model 20195 screen repl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCLavfx7ZbkS415 screen repl:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVx5YRHrQeg

I bought a Dell Studio XPS 1647 in January 2011 from Singapore. After 06 years of use, the primary battery has reached the end of its life. However, when I went online to purchase a replacement, I learned that this laptop model had so many issues that Dell finally had to make it obsolete. Needless to say, procuring the replacement battery has not worked out so far.
Singapore no longer has the primary battery available. It's a 6-Cell (56 WHr) Li-Ion Primary Battery, so I went to search for the same for my laptop model in the overall Dell website, mainly US. I found numerous batteries with the same specs compatible with my model but funnily the battery images do not even remotely match the battery that came with my laptop. In fact, these listed batteries do not even match each other by their images.
Is it possible to have different molds for the same spec primary battery for the same laptop model when the laptop is purchased in a different country??
Will appreciate any enlightenment on the subject. TIA!

Hello all,

My computer has been making a lot of noise lately, in fact it's been going on for probably the past 8 months or so. The first month I mostly ignored it hoping it would go away, which it did, then a few weeks later it came back and I decided it was time to investigate.

I have narrowed the problem down to being the power supply fan, mainly because it's very easy to hear and detect that it's coming from the back of my PC (and in that area). So I cracked the case open, unscrewed a buncha stuff, took the power supply apart somewhat so I could try to dust off the fan, but there was no dust to be seen. I dusted it anyway, removed some plastic pieces they had in there that seemed to serve no purpose, popped it back together, crossed my fingers that I had fixed it, but no luck.

The odd thing is that this noise will seem to come and go, usually it will be on jet engine sound level for ~2 weeks, then be relatively quiet for a month or so, every time I hope that it magically fixed itself, but now I've decided I need to do something about it.

The model is a SilverStone SST-ST65ZF, 650 Watt supply w/ PFC (whatever that means).

So on to my actual question. What I'm trying to figure out is, should I order the same replacement piece? Is this a solid piece of equipment and I just stumbled across a bad one originally? Is there a more ideal power supply with a quieter fan (in the same general price range, say <$200) that I should order instead?

All,

Thanks to everyone that takes the time to read this. I want to replace my OEM MSI MS-6577 mobo that came with my HP for another version of the MSI MS-6577 mobo but the new one would have an AGPx4 slot and the current one only has PCI slots. I read that replacing the motherboard on OEM systems with Windows XP like mine has, will cause big problems unless it for the exact same make and model motherboard. In my situation, it is the exact same make and model but a different version of the mobo that would have an additional AGP slot. Would this give me BSOD or would the swap go smoothly? I am also hoping not to have to reinstall Windows XP without having to go buy a copy as I read you can't do that off recovery discs with OEM Windows XP builds. Thank you everyone again.:grinthumb
 

A:Can I replace my OEM mobo with the same make & model but different version?

The problem would be with Microsoft

I believe you could put a different version of motherboard on there, heck, you could put an entirely different make of motherboard if you wanted as long as it fits the case's form factor. Simply, the screw holes on the motherboard have to align with the holes on the case.

The trouble you will run into is with Microsoft. Your copy of XP is associated with the serial number, model, and make of your present motherboard, and it's recorded in Microsoft's database. That's what happens when you activate a Microsoft product. The operating system or software will get your motherboard's information and record it. Now here comes the problem...

If you put in a new motherboard, the operating system on your hard drive is going to look up your previous motherboard's information when it boots up. If it sees a new motherboard, it will say, "I'm not associated with you, so I must not be licensed with you!" and it will tell you to contact Microsoft or buy a new copy of Windows.

What you have to do then is call Microsoft and ask them if you can associate your copy of Windows with a new motherboard. They will want to know why. Usually, they will only do that if your motherboard failed, exploded, or somehow became destroyed so you had to replace it. I don't know about motherboard upgrades. To Microsoft, each and every motherboard is a separate computer, and you are only licensed for one computer.

Hi guys. I'm UK based so models may be a bit unfamiliar to US members. I would guess none of you use BT, (wise move)!

Currently using BT HomeHub V1.0, (yes there's still one out there), on BT broadband line with BT Vision services and with all internal network connections to it connected through a Netgear WNR3500 router. I'm a good level of user (software developer) but definitely NOT a network whizz so chances are I'm missing something important.

The idea was to take DHCP and Wireless control from the HomeHub and give it to the Netgear. Many long attempts later.... These services can be disabled on the HH and enabled on the Netgear easily. However the BT device will not give up control of DHCP and still allow network machines to see the internet! BT HH was given a fixed IP address in the Netgear, the same as its standard allocation when it is in control (192.168.1.254), and this was used for the gateway address in TCP/IP setup and in Netgear settings. I can get everything set up internally so the Netgear is in control with the HH DHCP and Wireless switched off, machines can all see each other and talk to each other perfectly, but no one sees the internet!

I would really like to replace the HH completely so was looking for a basic non-router type modem to leave the WNR3500 as the network manager. Thought of the Netgear DM111P as it was an economic Netgear match but it has such rotten reviews for reliability in terms of heat that I went off that model an... Read more

A:Recommend modem only model to replace BT HomeHub

I have found and am currently considering the Draytek Vigor 120. Vigor say: "You can connect any device to the Vigor 120 which has a PPPoE client facility. This means the actual connection to your ISP is still PPPoA (unlike other modems which only provide PPPoE native bridging), which is a unique feature of this product and makes it compatible with all UK ISPs where PPPoA is used as standard." Should work ok with the Netgear WNR3500 and anything to make for a simpler more controllable connection.

Anyone know this or can offer advice as to whether it is a suitable unit?

What if I replace the motherboard with the exact same model BUT change processors? Will I have any issues?
Was in the process of updating the bios. Not sure what I did wrong but it's dead. Have to send it back to super micro. I ordered an identical motherboard. But was updating the bios so I could switch from a quad core westmere chip to a hex.
Everything I have read states the OS is married to the motherboard (Win7 64 OEM). So if I get away with no issues from the motherboard swap, will the processor swap give me issues.
My system is a dual boot ubuntu 64/Win7 setup. I don't want to reinstall if I can help it. Advice would be appreciated.

I splashed some tea on the keyboard of my 510-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) model 80SR and now some of the keys have stopped working. I am in the UK so this is the layout/style of keyboard it uses (not the US layout). The backlight still works fine, though, and the laptop itself works normally, it is only some keys which have stopped working. I have fixed this problem on other laptops by simply replacing the keyboard, but on my ideapad the keyboard is internal (it doesn't pop out) so I don't know how to do it. Furthermore, I can't find any information about the keyboard for this laptop anywhere on the internet: not on google, not on youtube, not even on this Lenovo website. How/where can I repair/replace the keyboard? Will it be expensive? I have seen that sometimes only individual keys need to be fixed, not the entire keyboard, could this be an option? My laptop is still under warranty if that means anything. Thanks for any help.

Hello,
I recently received my 9630 and it is just gorgeous.
However, today I was doing some typing on a Microsoft document when I notice something strange.
In my old laptops, when I need to dim down the brightness I would press the FN (function) key + F11 to lessen the brightness. But this time round I don't need to. All I need to do is just press F11. Then, when I am using Chrome or Internet Explorer... the F5 key is the refresh key. But it won't work unless I press FN + F5. 
Even when it comes to renaming documents or files. The shortcut is F2, but I need to press FN + F2.
Then here's what gets more strange.
If I were to type my email, for example, [email protected], that @ symbol isn't SHIFT+2. But it is SHIFT+" key.  And Shift+2 produces " instead of @.
Is this some sort of hardware issue?

Hi,
I recently purchased an XPS 13 (9360) with Windows 10 preinstalled, and today I wanted to install Arch Linux as a dual boot option. I discovered that Arch Linux does not recognize the NVMe PCIe SSD if the SATA conroller is set to Raid On mode in the BIOS. After browsing some forums, I found out that it is completely fine if I switch off the SATA controller (set to Disabled in the BIOS). So I did this, reinstalled Windows 10 first and everything was alright. This happened under BIOS version 1.0.7. But just after the fresh Windows install, I noticed that a new update for the BIOS was released (version 1.2.3), so I went ahead and updated the BIOS. The update completed without an error but at boot, no operating system could be detected. 
I went into the BIOS, and under System Information as well, it was written that no hard drive at all was present (no NVMe PCIe nor SATA of course). If I switched the SATA controller to AHCI mode, the problem resolved itself, the BIOS reported the SSD and Windows 10 booted without a problem. So this is more like a question than a problem, but is this the intended behaviour? As far as I understand, if I have an NVMe PCIe SSD drive (CX2-8B512-Q11 NVMe LITEON 512 GB), there is no need for the SATA controller to be enabled, and this was indeed the case with the previous BIOS version (1.0.7). So is this a bug or am I not right somewhere?

On the first question, was Windows reinstalled in SATA mode or NVMe?
On the second -- no, this system does not have any eGPU support -- so far, Dell has released that ONLY for some Alienware systems.  That doesn't definitively mean an eGPU won't work - but it does mean there's no support for one from Dell, and that it is more likely one won't work than that it will.

I believe I've found a difference between the two drives, it seems that the conner unit automatically enables SCSI parity and the ibm drive makes no mention of it.
Do any of you think this could be the issue? If so how would I enable parity on the ibm drive?

Thanx

Which Intel P4 Processor and what storage options to use?

Hello everyone. I need to spec out a new testing PC for work, so I'm asking for some opinions. The role this thing will play is a VMware test machine. I will be creating VMware images to run application tests, break/fix, troubleshooting, etc. The operating systems on the images will likely be Server 2003 and XP. So I was thinking of 2 gigs memory, but that may be too conservative. The help I really need is with the CPU and storage. I obviously want a multi core/hyperthreaded CPU, but which one? Hot swapapble RAID would be nice, but what level, and do I need a stand-alone RAID controller or can I use the mobo's?

Thanks all, in advance.
 

A:Specs I need, give me specs. Opinion Sollicitation for work PC...

The Xeon Line of CPU's usally do very well in a server like setup. Alot of the time you can get the dual CPU motherboards. If you perfer though maybe one of the new Intel Dual Cores will run well, although im not sure, most servers I know of run dual Xeon's.

As for storage, if you have the money, get SCSI contolers and RAID SCSI drives. They are alot quicker.

And 2GB of RAM seems fine.

Hi,  Just wondering if anyone has had any luck installing a bluetooth driver for the s400 with Windows 10. I tried, but I keep receiving the following message:Your app doesn't work with Windows 10 The app you're trying to use was blocked from opening because it might damage your PC or result in loss of data. This is because some apps that worked with a previous version of Windows might not work in the same way with Windows 10.Go to the support website for the app developer, and check if a new or updated version of this app is available for Windows 10. I think that this is because only the Windows 8 is available.  I would appreciate any and all assistance!

Hi Lenny,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
For S400, currently there are no updates released for windows 10 yet. Hence you can downgrade to windows 8.1 to access all features. However you can download & instal the Bluetooth driver for win 8.1 here.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Regards,
Shashi Kumar

just wondering about canon s400 movie mode
it said that it can record up to 3-min video/audio
is this consistent no matter how big my compact flash card

can it record longer than 3-min if it has a bigger card???
 

A:Canon S400 3-min vid q?

My Olympus says up to 3 minutes and what happens is it stops right on the dot no matter how big a card I have. Maybe just before the 3min. is up you can stop and start again and then combine all those clips some how. Mine does qucktime movies but I never looked to see if there was a way to combine them to make one big movie but I bet it could be done some how.

A:s400 touch screen not working

Hi monjan10,
 
I have the same problem too for almost two years and I found the solution just this March 20. Install the LCD Firmware in your machine. You can use this tutorial to guide you through the process. If the LCD frimware link dows not work, you can download it [unverified link removed]. It worked for me and it only took a one-time installation. I've reset my laptop to go back to Windows 8 but unfortunately, I was coerced again to update to Windows 8.1 however, it did not screw up my touchscreen.
 
Let us know if problems persists.

So my s400is having major problems printing wirelessly. When plugged in, hardwired, there?s no issue. The printer  hp 6500 series, prints just fine off my dell, iPad Air print, and other devices. The only issue is the s400. When we try to print, the project just stays in the printing queue and says printing, without ever printing. Even a week later, the project is still there. There is no issue printing a test page, as that goes through just fine.  The problem is irritatin, as one computer is fine and the other doesn?t work. I?ve restarted router, printer, computer, checked drivers, factory reset, changed WiFi bands.  What am am I missing, and what may be the problem?

Hello, I have had my laptop for a number of years. But there is one question that I cannot find the answer too. How the hell do you plug in headphones when the headphone jack (Or whatever it's called is stuck or doesn't want to move (Or something like that)? I've tried plugging in my headphones, but whatever that is, won't budge. I should also mention here that my usb port is all burnt out, so I can't use those either. But my laptop is good working order otherwise.

Hey group - I print mostly black ink only. When any of my 3 color cartridges goes empty I get a message telling me to replace that ink tank. The message won't go away till I replace that color even tho I've selected Black Only for printing.

How can I disable that message so I can print black only even when my color tanks are empty??

How does the printer "see" that a tank is empty. How can I trick it?

Is there a way to print black only with the color tanks REMOVED from the printer?

Thanks,
Jack
 

A:Canon S400 Printer Question

Where did you select black only? IIRC I could pint plain black just fine on my S400 even when the color tanks were empty..

Also, you should never remove the color tanks - the print head pipes gather dust, dry up and clog.

I think a virus wiped my bios. My Lenovo s400 isn't posting. The lights turn on but the fan is on for a second, then stops. The screen doesn't turn on at all. The only thing I can think of is to get a new motherboard for it but I am broke. How do I fix this? I need it for school and FRC.
