How should I test my ESD mats?

Question: How should I test my ESD mats?

I have 4 ESD mats at the computer workshop I work. The ESD mats are interconnected and one of them is connected to ground through a resistive socket (or whatever it's called) which must be several Megaohms because my Ohmeter cannot read it (it reads up to 2MOhm). Yesterday I did this test: I used a voltmeter set to AC voltage, negative probe touching the ground in a socket, the other one between my fingers. I measured 2 volts. Then I put on the ESD wrist-band and I was surprised to find that not only did the voltage go down, it rose to 2.2volts!. It looks like this mat isn't working, am I right?

Preferred Solution: How should I test my ESD mats?

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.)

Never heard of a 'resistive socket' but the concept sounds correct.
The object is to absorb the energy to avoid the immediate discharge. However, we use capacitors for that and may be the reason for the ohm meter test results.

I would expect a resistor->capacitor->earth.ground type of circuit. The capacitor absorbs the energy and slowly drains it back to the ground. The resistor slows the charging of the capacitor to avoid the immediate ESD.

Your 2v DC test is not correct either. ESD is high voltage of a very short duration and the mat+socket would not respond to low voltable, long duration.

Question: Mats*ita DVD-RAM

I have a Mats*ita DVD-RAM UJ-860 ATA Device that does not work.  I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling, looking for updated software, and it keeps telling me that the driver cannot be found.  I have not found a reliable website to download a driver from.  Does anyone know where I can find the driver or how to get the drive working.  I have a R61i with Windows Vista.  Thank you. (I have inserted an (*) for the (h) because the website is "bleeping" out the device producer name.

Question: Mouse Mats

Thank you to aserus I have brought the MX1000 it is the best mouse I have owned can not recommend it enough. I have now started to look into Mouse Mats always had free one's and not to keen on using my super mouse on any old thing, can anyone recommend a good mouse mat and is it worth paying £25 for . I only have a fairly small bit of space left and I believe glass mats are not good for optic mouse's and thus no good for laser mouse's either, so may rule out certain one's. I have heard an old bit of lino may be just as good .

Thanks for your comments

Can I possibly and safely right click and remove it will it go away, or.....?
Thank you

Answer:Mats-Temp

If you can't delete the folder as it says it locked. You can download a small program called unlocker that will tell you what program is locking the folder and you can delete the folder that way as it unlocks and deletes at the same time.

Hope this helps

Hi there, I had trouble recently with the backup software filling my hard drive. The person (in my company) and I troubleshooting solved that but immediatley after, the CD/DVD drive ceased to exist in My Computer. I believe we deleted something. Of course, we also deleted the recovery files so I am unable to use those to get the system back. In Device Manager under DVD/CD-ROM drives, I don't see the generic driver that I can see in my colleague's T61. I only see the failed UJ-862 driver. I have tried the following things to no avail: "Update driver", Disable/Enable, Uninstall driver, Removed the drive and re-installed, Installed a different (Sony) drive from another T61, Windows update, Downloaded and tried to load the updated drivers from the Support and Downloads site. Did this from the floppy image. It started, then polled the CD drive and determined that I already had the current driver and did not update. I think this means the generic driver needs to be loaded. My system is company supplied and it will have to be shipped back to be fixed. I am trying to avoid this as losing the computer is way more hassle than not having a CD/DVD drive. The properties dialog box shows the following error when I highlight the device. "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks, LenB(no sigline yet but T61 type 7664-RYU running on Win XP Pro with ... Read more

Answer:T61 does not recognize Mats***a UJ-862 Multidrive

Hello LenB, welcome to our forum! Please try to download a Linux live cd, burn it to disc and try to boot with it.Before you should put the cd drive out of your thinkpad bay and then reinstall it into the bay. If nothing happens, the the drive may be faulty. You should contact support or, when out of warranty buy a new one.

I installed OneNote 2013 to take advantage of the free offer: Get OneNote for free on all your devices

I mucked about with it - disabling the Click-to-run service and a few other things. This caused the application to fail when launched
- worse than that , neither the offline of online repair options in Control Panel -> Programs and Features (P&F) - Change OneNote / Repair were able to launch OneNote to repair it. I forget if I was able to uninstall OneNote using the normal P&F function. I don't think that worked either though.

Clicking the get online help link took me to:
Uninstall Office 2013 or Office 365 from a Windows computer


linkid=9815935
I ran the O15CTRRemove .diagcab (MS Fix it)
to completely uninstall all remnants of Office
and OneNote and then restarted my machine.
I can reinstall OneNote 2013 (or is it 2015??) and remember not to screw around with the services associated with it, even if I don't want the Click-to-run service on my machine.

I might decide to use the Modern OneNote app instead - it's a smaller footprint and has the features I need without the extra baggage the Desktop OneNote brings with it (MS Office hooks).

 I ran a hardware scan via the Lenovo Solution Center and my laptop passed every test but three contained in the "storage devices" subsection. The tests were the - Targeted read test- SMART short self test- SMART drive self test. with a result code of WHD01V01I-UL7A6K. My OS is windows 10 64-bit. What do these failed tests mean? Is there a way to fix them?

Answer:Thinkpad EDGE E440 failed targeted read test, SMART short self test and SMART drive self test on LSC

Failing the SMART tests is not a good sign, that usually means that the drive is failing, so I would do the following and then call support if your system is under warranty, and if obtain a new drive. Back up all of your important data data immediately onto a USB DriveCreate an image of your System Partition using using Lenovo One Key recovery.Create a Windows 10 Recovery Drive that includes system filesYou might also download Keyfinder/Magic Jelly Bean and run it to pull any Product Keys from the registy for applications you have installed if you do not have them all written down, and then save that to a USB Key etc. Good Luck

I have been experiencing some difficulty with my Z560 for a few weeks now. It freezes, is slow, shuts down, and is sometimes not responsive to any keystroks. Does not respond to CTL ALT DEL to start task manager , requirig me to shut it down manually. This has been going on for about a month now. I have doe the hardware scan test a few times and today the computer failed the SMART short self test as well as the SMART drive self test. My research tells me that this is a warning that the hard drive is failing. The Lenovo Hardware test site tells me to contact Lenovo with the following result code: WHD01V01G-7H9W8J. Where do I send this code? Is this, indeed, a message that my hard drive is beginning to fail ? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Answer:SMART short-self test and SMART drive self test show a failure during Hardware scan test

Hi,
 
Welcome to the forum.
 
The result of SMART short self test and SMART drive self test suggest that the hard drive has failed. First thing to do is back up all your data while the hard drive can still be accessed. Also contact the Lenovo technical support and they will guide you further.

Hi,

I recently ran a scheduled diagnostic test of my PC with the manufacturer's diagnostic software. I received two error messages and the advice to promptly replace my hard drive. The first message was Failed (Error code: WHD20-1VR) and the second was Failed (Error code: WHD16-T57). The apply to Targeted Read test and Smart Short Self Test respectively.

So I ran Chkdsk for the C: drive and received no error messages.

Which is correct and what should I do about it? The error message won't go away on the software.

Thanks for helping.

 

Answer:Question: Failed Targeted Read Test and SMART Short Self Test

CHKDSK is a very basic check that mostly checks file system and can be set to scan for bad sectors. The manufacturer's diagnostics actually check the physical drive to make sure its operating within the designed parameters and is more thorough.

You should replace the drive.

Summary: There is software for the morning after

The test results disproved a statement frequently posted in forums, that all you can do is delete your Windows system if it becomes infected with malware.

Among the security suites, the solutions from Malwarebytes, Bitdefender and Kaspersky demonstrated the best performance among all the packages tested. All in all, however, the rest of the field still showed quite solid performance, even though a few active components were left behind.

Among the freeware clean-up tools, the Kaspersky Removal Tool is worth recommending. While the Norton tool, as well as Disinfect2013 from Heise, left behind quite a lot of data garbage, neither failed to detect a single active malware component.

In final analysis: In case an existing security suite ever fails, there are reliable rescue options for having a Windows system cleaned and repaired. The best part of all: in case of emergency, most of the tools can even be used free of Charge.

Answer:Hepl me with T430 with Hard drive test by LSC reported Targeted read test Failed

Hi, quocphong
 
It sounds like the hard drive is running okay overall, but it has some bad sectors in it. You will not be able to read or write to these sectors. That being said, I would first try running a ChkDsk on the hard drive and see if any of the sectors can be repaired. To run a ChkDsk, go to Computer and right-click on the C: drive and select Properties. Navigate to the Tools tab and select the box that says Check now... This should scan the drive for errors and attempt to fix them if possible. The test can take a while, so I would do it when you will not need access to your computer.
 
If the test is not able to fix the errors, then I would contact Lenovo at 120-11072 (Toll Free) or +(84) 8 3521 8000 (Standard Charges Apply) and discuss a hard drive replacement with them. As for Windows, you will need to ask for recovery discs as well. Lastly, I would backup everything on the current hard drive so that it is not lost.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

AV-Test lab has solved this problem in a test in which 10 major antivirus and 7 had special cleaning tools to clean infected systems not only, but also to completely repair the. Over the whole period, several malware families were tested repeatedly. Note that malware samples used were known manufacturers of all solutions tested and therefore ought to be clearly detected, however, but it was not many of them.

The following security patches have been examined in this assay:

- Three popular freeware solutions: avast! Free Antivirus 9.0, AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 Avira Free Antivirus;
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free, a solution recommended by several IT magazines;
- Microsoft Security Essentials, included in Windows;
- Five additional paid-known software solutions from Bitdefender, ESET, F-Secure, Kaspersky and Norton.

In addition, the following tools were also tested cleaning and recovery of the system;

- Avira Cleaner and Hitman Pro, recommended counseling center anti-botnet "Botfrei.de"
- Disinfect the 2013 commercial publisher Heise IT;
- F-Secure Removal Tool, Removal Tool Kaspersky, Panda and Norton P... Read more

I ran the hardware test this morning and everything passed but the SMART short self test. It failed and gave me this code. WHD01V00G-BK7W0J It says to send to Lenovo but I don't know where. I also can't add my laptop to my products on my account. I keep getting a message #WL Service Busy #   What do I do?

hi Smurfette,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The image below is the breakdown on how the LSC error codes mean.

The SMART short self-test that failed may have detected some certain sectors on the drive that are bad and predicted an imminent HDD failure so I would recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.

Hi there, Naveen-
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
The SMART Self-Test Unit means that the diagnostic utility failed to read some certain sectors on the drive and predicted an imminent HDD failure.
 
If with the test you did you are getting a SMART test or a smart short test failure then I believe you need to back up your data and be ready to replace the drive.
 
I recommend you contact Lenovo support and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.
 
Update us how it goes.

cleans up java, prefetch, temp files and temporary internet files.

-works fine on one machine. just want to see if its actually deleting anything on another. on my machine, it doesnt delete everything, ccleaner still has to clean up my pc it is odd. i might need to make an addtional script for local user

seemed to work on a user's machine.

Now from last few days, whenever I perform System Test again then it just gets cancelled for Video and Touch Screen with no failure id. I uninstalled HP Support Assistant, installed it again, restarted my laptop and performed test again. This time also both tests get cancelled. So what is the meaning of above failure id and why these tests get cancelled everytime? Please provide me info about this.

Hi Guys,

Just recently got a Powercolor HD 5850 gpu , and have ran a test on the latest Passmark performance test benchmarking software.

It seems about right on the 3d score with around 2200

But the 2d score is very low at around 320

Is this normal?

Just want to make sure everything is running right with it.

A friend has an Nvidia gtx 275 and its scores like over 900 on the 2d section!

I thought the 2 cards would be pretty much the same if not the HD 5850 being slightly better.

Proberly just me being fussy , but like I say I want to make sure all is right with it , otherwise its going back lol.

Cheers

Paul.

Answer:Anyone with a HD 5850 run a test on Passmark performance test?

I just ran the 64-bit version of this:
3D overall 2425.5
2D overall 369.2

**edit**
I don't think I like this benchmark. I recently installed the June DirectX redist, so I'm up to date. This thing wanted to, and did install it's own "updated" DirectX files, which I found odd. After I ran the benchmark, I played a little Bad Company 2... had my very first crash to desktop... ever.

Coincidence? Perhaps, but I uninstalled this pos and re-ran the June redist anyway.

Answer:AV-Test Android Test September 2015

There's not a lot of difference between the vendors, except for features, so I personally would not pay for any Android antivirus apps. A very basic app can provide decent protection against unwanted apps. I have recently installed Bitdefender Free on my smartphone, it scans when I download apps from Play Store, all without any bloatware or nag screens, as I have previously experienced in other free apps.

Again, antivirus for Android is optional.

Ok, where to start. First, I've had this PC for about 4 years without any problems. I have my computer set to go to a blank screensaver after 1 min of not being used, and power off the monitor after 2 minutes of not being used.

The other week, the image on my entire computer screen would shake, and sometimes you could smell something burning. Sometimes, when the screen shaked so bad the monitor would just go blank for a few seconds, then back to what I was doing. (BTW, it has nothing to do with whatever I'm doing on the computer, the shaking screen happens regardless)

I thought it was just a problem with the monitor, until today when I actually shut my PC off after recieving Windows updates last night. When I went to turn it back on, audio came out of my speakers saying "system failed CPU test" I get all the lights on my PC tower on, the three lights on my keyboard are lit up, but my monitor's light is on stanby orange. There is no image on my screen whatsoever. When I push the power button on my monitor, it turns green for a few seconds, then shuts off, never displaying any image. My mouse has the red light coming from the bottom. When I hit the power button on my PC tower, nothing happens,

So I turn off the power strip, and tuen it back on, then hit the power on my tower, this time I get a "system failed VDA (or VGA) test" sound from my speakers. Everything else is like i said in the previous paragraph.

Hi!I just bought a T540p in a travel, (about 3 weeks ago) and everything was awesome.But one day it suddenly stopped booting. It just goes in choosing boot device menu, and whatever I choose, It returns to the same page after 2-3 seconds of black screen.  I think it can't detect hard drives. The only clue I have, is that in Lenovo Diagnostics in bios, "motherboard bus test" failed in USB test in less than 3 seconds so probably motherboards SATA  interface which I think is depending on UBS interface has an issue. The error I get is UMB001001-WJ7W9H. How can I interpret that and since there is no lenovo support center where I live and I have to fix it myself, what do you suggest I do? Thanks a lot. P.S.

Hey I have an old Inspiron B130. Seems the battery is bad, or maybe it's just not charging, or maybe it's just not working in some other way? My question is how can I test?
I don't want to just rush out and buy a new battery without knowing if the laptop battery subsystem is working. The laptop came from a person who "claims" that the battery is actually a new one. I can't verify, so I want to see if I can test the laptop itself.
I wonder if there are wiring diagrams or something where I can just test a few of the pins. Or I wonder if the pins are testable at all without a battery plugged in?

How can I make sure the battery subsystem works before I buy a new battery?
 

Answer:Test battery and test output from laptop?

If you can't find any diagrams, just get a multitester, and with power off and pc unplugged, take out the battery and find pos / neg terminals on the computer against the chassis (unless they are labelled on the battery by chance?). Once you know which terminal is which, put the battery in the computer, let it charge (does the charge light come on? I should have asked that before). for a couple hours, unplug it and check the power. You may not see the full 11 volts (at least that's what I think the battery is on that model), but if it's charging, you should always have at least some residual power...

Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. In the test, CylancePROTECT® was pitted against five competing endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec and Trend Micro.

The primary goal of these tests was to show the detection and prevention capabilities of new and unknown malicious executables. The tests that AV-TEST conducted for this report represent a number of significant industry firsts: The first time that a 3rd party testing organization created their own malware in order to conduct testing
A third-party testing organization created their own malware in order to conduct testing
A testing organization developed new testing methods specifically designed to target next-generation vendors
Download the report to review the results of the four test cases.

?CylancePROTECT doesn't need regular signature updates nor does it require cloud queries to detect new files, even before execution. On the other hand, the other tested products depend on updated signature databases and cloud queries to provide additional levels of detection.?

?The tests have shown that CylancePROTECT is able to detect and prevent unknown attacks, while the other vendors have more problems with new attacks.?

The image ends up scuttling off the to right of the screen up against the edge of the browser scrollbar and completely kills the overall layout I was chasing.Just for laughs I ran the site through NetScape 4.78 and nearly threw a fit. I know NetScape 4x is absolutely lousy at CSS interpretation, but I didn't expect to see my page elements displayed as though a child had been let loose with some scissors and glue and had reassembled my site in jigsaw puzzle fashion, getting all the bits mixed up in the process.Now, as some of you will have realised, I've done one or two sites in the past, but this does go to demonstrate the importance of cross browser testing.On some other sites I have seen the browser is so confused by convoluted code that all hel...

Answer:Web browsers: test, test, and test again...

Yes, the NetScape 4.7 trip was just to see what would happen. I really didn't think things would be quite as bad as they turned out, but I expected pretty awful from the outset and I wasn't disappointed ;o)This all came to light recently when I inherited a few sites with glaring issues. Abuse of the capabilities of various WYSIWYG editors to produce something visually impressive in IE had resulted in something that looked shocking in some other browsers.I realise that IE has the majority market share, but it seems ludicrous to deliberately ostracise other browser users when in most cases it is not necessary to do so.If anyone wants a humbling experince, try running your shiny new site through NetScape 4x and see what happens.Be afraid.Be very, very afraid.And then be thankful that pretty much nobody uses it any more.

Upgraded to Windows 10 (from Windows 7) after ignoring the constant encouragement to upgrade for quite sometime. It was fine for quite some time (weeks/months). Yesterday, after a restart, the blue tiled screen with the "Choose An Option" menu came up. You can "Test Memory", "Test System" or "Exit". The problem is that when you do any of these options, it just keeps cycling back to this "Choose An Option" screen.

I have a Dell Inspiron 570 (older machine). I've gotten it to go to the BIOS Setu Utility by pressing F2 (constantly as it cycles). I have the DVD/CD in the drive, but it seems to be disabled?

I'm stuck and would appreciate any help at all...please.

Thank you,

Hello All,I've made check-up on my X230 with the results "X230 Targeted read test failed" and "SMART short self-test failed".In addition there was the error code WHD01V00I-WHOXQM. Does anybody know what does it mean and what should be done in this case?Thanks in advance for the help,Gena

Answer:X230 Targeted read test failed, SMART short self-test failed

Hi, Gena
 
I did some research on your issue and I found this thread. The general consenus by the community is this: When you run those tests and receive a status of "Failed" on a sector, that means the drive is beginning to fail. If you haven't already, I recommend running a ChkDsk (check disk) which can found by navigating to "Computer" and then right clicking on the drive (most likely C:\, the main drive). Select "Properties" from the drop down menu and a new window will appear. Select the tab "Tools." You should see an option that says "Check now." If you select that, the computer will start checking the drive for errors. ChkDsk will take a while to run, and you will likely have to reboot the machine for it to commence, but it should tell you the status of your drive. 
 
Good luck, and let me know if I can assist you further,
Adam

Hi,

I am running Windows Xp SP3, 3 gig of Ram and am having an issue with my Gigabyte Motherboard, model number 81945P-G-RH and my BIOS version is F4.

I have recently noticed an issue on my bios post screen, when my PC is started the PC does the memory test, where it should say

Memory Test: XXXXXXX (x = amount of RAM)

all i see on my screen is

Memory T

I can not see the test being undertaken, after about 2 and a half minutes the memory test will complete at which point i can see the full words Memory Test and how much memory was tested as well as my master and slave drives listed.

I CAN NOT skip the memory test by pressing space bar or esc, i can only enter the bios via the delete button and i only enter the bios once the memory test has completed.

I can still run windows normally but i do not like that i am having to do a memory test everytime i start my PC. I would like to point out while in XP, the same amount of RAM shown when the test completes is consistant with what is shown in the "My Computer" properties.

I have tried all versions of my bios but still it is doing the memory test. I would appreciate any help in getting this fixed. I have not been able to find away to disable the memory test in the BIOS.

I hope you get back to me at your earliest convenience, thanks.

Hello,

I have an Adobe Connect meeting scheduled for tomorrow, and when I click on the link to test my connection to Adobe Connect, which I just installed, I get this message- what can I do? I am connected to the Internet, so Firefox does have permission to access
the Web.
"Hmm. We?re having trouble finding that site.

We can?t connect to the server at meet94924985.adobeconnect.com.
If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.
    Check your network connection.
    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

Question: Ssd test?

Is there a tool for testing a SSD? I was running the OS from it but I kept losing data so only use it for a secondary drive with programs on it.

Answer:Ssd test?

You can use AS SSD or ATTO to test performance. Some SSDs perform better in one than the other. Vertex usually does better in ATTO.
