type c usb vga adapter not working

Question: type c usb vga adapter not working

When i plug in HP USB type C to vga adapter i immediately get message "Try improving USB connection. Display Port connection might not work. Try using different cable.". This is the HP adapter Cable accessory I ordered with the new HP Envy 17in notebook/laptop. Tried different vga cable to HP monitor. Both give same result. Cannot connect to vga monitor. Do I need to install a driver? Do i have a bad type c adapter?

This is a common problem (I see lots of posts)
The problem source is the [Dell] AC adapter.  PA-21 Family, 65W, P/N: NX061.  It is made in China.
I have an XPS M1330.  Using Dell after warranty service, replaced the Mother Board twice, replaced the battery twice, replaced the AC adapter twice - not fixing it.
Turns out the power warning message is very informative.  It states "Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for best system performance".  So, I plugged in my Dell 95W adapter - WOW Problem Solved.
A lab test of my new Dell 65W AC adapter shows it to be 64.6 watts.  If this unit gets hot (like after several hours of use), it may not put out the full 65 watts - the system may not recognize the adapter, it may power the system ok, but won't charge the battery.
These units burn out after only a few months of use. Their cables are too fragile. If Dell's or their supplier's Quality Control can't produce a reliable 65W product - I found seveal "Made In USA" universal adapters.
 

Answer:AC Adapter - Alert - "AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined"

Well my solution was simple.
I just removed the battery pack and powered up my notebook. Then I turned off the notebook replaced the battery pack and VOILA. The error message was gone.

I am planning on making this project myself but first I have one question. Here is the project I will be making:
http://siliconrepublic.blogspot.com.au/2011/02/arduino-based-pc-ambient-lighting.html

It says I need a 12V DC supply for powering the breadboard. When searching up for 12V DC supplies, I only get power supply's that plug into the wrong wall socket (I live in Australia).
Do I need to get something like the article suggests:
http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-AC-Veh...1KZ6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1297231222&sr=8-2

Or can I get something such as this:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DC-12V-1...?pt=AU_Laptop_Accessories&hash=item336678ae52
If the first option is the only possibility, how do I get the plug to go into my wall socket?
Also, how do I get the other end plugged into the breadboard when the product just has a single plug on the end?
 

Answer:What type of power adapter do I need?

You can use the Ebay adaptor, the easiest way to get 2 wires is to get a socket that fits the plug, like this one :- http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5-5-x-2-...05?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item4167b5b34d and solder 2 wires to that socket.

The circuit at your link uses a 2 wire plug into the breadboard, you would have to get a similar plug OR you could push bare wires into the breadboard.

OR you could cut the plug off to reveal the 2 wires but they will probably be quite thin and may not connect well if pushed into the breadboard holes.

I had to replace the power cord (from the outlet to the box) on my AC adapter. It worked fine for awhile; but now I'm getting this message on boot up. "Warning. The AC adapter type cannot be determined. This will prevent optimal system performance. Please check AC adapter is connected properly. Remove AC adapter and plug it in again." I tried plugging it in again several times to no avail. Then my virus program (Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 14) popped up a window to start in Safe Mode to fix the problem. I know how to start in Safe Mode but don't know what to do once I'm in there. Any help will be appreciated.

Hi!

Awhile ago, I started getting this error message when I started up my computer (after the initial Dell screen). It stated:

The AC adapter type cannot be determined. This will prevent optimal system performance.

Strike the F3 key (before the F1 or F2 key) if you do not want to see power warning messages again.

Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the set up utility.

-----

I ignored this problem for awhile by just hitting F1. However, within the last month, it has gotten worse. Instead of this error message coming up when I started my computer - after the initial Dell screen, nothing would come up except a little flashing line in the top left hand corner of the screen, and the computer would not start up passed that. I proceeded to fiddle with the plug that I plug into my laptop from adapter. I would push it harder into the laptop and/or twist it in after I hit the start up button, waiting to see if, after the initial Dell screen, I could get the error message to come up again so I could hit F1 so my computer would actually start up. I really don't know if any of that helped, but I figure if it was the adapter, then I should try something like that. I even blew it the plug and into the socket in the laptop tonight. However, tonight, I almost could not get the computer to start up all the way - I kept getting the screen with the little blinking line after the initial Dell screen and no error message. Eventually, after trying several times, I did get the error ... Read more

I am getting this error message. My battery is not charging. And it is clocking my cpu speed to 0.5 GHz. I heard that there is a pin in the DC jack that tells a chip on the computer to tell the computer that the AC adapter is not suitable (whether damage or low wattage). I'm wondering if there is a way to disable the chip and just use it at full speed, I don't really need a battery because I'm mainly on AC use anyways.

Answer:The wattage and type of the AC adapter cannot be determined

Mine will do that if the plug is not all the way in.  It has happened to me twice now and I would have thought it would take more than 1/16th of an inch to cause the situation.
Sorry I don't know of a way to bypass this check.

So.. I see this problem has been posted about before, so I just wanna know what my options are.
This problem actually popped up on me a few months ago, but I was able to remove and insert the power cord a few times and the message would go away and I would be able to charge my battery. But as a month or two passed, it became more finicky, and I had to jiggle with it a little more, but still, I was able to charge my battery and use my laptop wire-free.
Now today, I've been trying all day, and cannot for the life of me get the battery to charge. I get the following message when I plug the wire in.
"The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or higher for best system operation."
Also, I think its worth nothing that a lot of people mention that this error message comes up while they are booting their Laptops, mine only comes up once Vista is loaded and I attempt to reinsert the cord.
So, I have tried another Dell charger, a 90W one, and the same problem does occur (My original is a 65W). I am planning on getting a different battery tomorrow to see if it is the battery, as this ones usable life was getting quite low, down to barely a half hour per full charge. My warranty, although I'm not sure of the specifics, was not expired when this problem first came up, but is now expired by I would say 2 months at the most.

At a minimum, the power jack on the mainboard needs to be replaced - if that doesn't fix it or a competent repair shop tells you it won't, you'll need to replace the system board.

Dell Inspiron 5755 with a 17" display, running windows 10 and the latest BIOS version from Dell(as of 3/2/2017). AC adapter power supply is a 45W, 19.5V, 2.31A, Dell power supply. It works fine and is not damaged, (lite is lit on the brick and proper voltage out verified by using a VOM). When running on battery for a while and the battery low window pops up, I plug in the power supply and immediately get a message "The AC adapter power type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and battery will not charge". I ordered and tried another Dell 45W power supply. Same issue. I right clicked the battery icon in the system tray to display the Dell Power Manager. It says my battery is fine, 100% normal. As I unplug and plug in the power supply while the Dell Power Manager is up, I can see the word "charging" displayed in the management window for a bit, but then it disappears. The battery Icon itself shows that the power supply is plugged in as it displays a male electrical plug. If I remove the battery the laptop powers up fine. The BIOS in this machine does not display the charging device information, just that the battery is 100% normal. While in BIOS I hit the F9 key to reset basic bios functions to no avail. I also tried uninstalling the AC adapter and ACPI- compliant control method battery and re-booting to no avail.

Hello! I've been around here for a sometimes but never registered as a users because I find all the solution I needed, but I have one follow problems that I can't solve and I need sevenforum's help!

I recently bought Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 and comparing game performance with my old graphic card Nvidia 9800 GT, I don't see much of a difference. According to my friend who builds computer, he said it's suppose to be superior differences between those 2 graphic cards. I also tried to sign up for BETA profile for Blizzard game series and apparently it kept detecting the Radeon HD 4200, which is my integrated card. Anyways, my question is, how can I change my Adapter Type? I posted a picture of it so you guys can see what's my problem is. I have the latest Catalyst Control Panel from the sites sticky thread .

I don't know how to check my computer stuff, so here's my computer on website: HP - Pavilion Desktop / AMD Athlon™ II Processor / 4GB Memory / 750GB Hard Drive - p6654y

My english is my second language so if you can't understand what I said I'll be glad to explain again lol. Rough draft xD.

I've already tried Driver Sweeper, failed on me .

I don't know what BIOS means either lol.

If my integrated graphic card is disabled for good, I think I might get to see my 6770's full performance. Also tried overclocking, didn't helped at all :[. I still think it's my integrated card's problem, but hey I could be wrong. I'm terrible at computers .

Answer:Changing a video card adapter type help.

Assuming HP didn't hide the option in the bios (and I wouldn't put it past them), have a good look around likely in the Advanced section under Chipset. If it is don't disable it quite yet, first boot back to Windows and uninstall the AMD driver through Programs and Features using the Catalyst Install Manager. Then restart and go into the bios and disable, and re-install the AMD driver using the latest,

Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

unless that is the one you already have.

P.S. What you're seeing shouldn't happen, but with the way HP likes to hide/disable/monkey around in general with bios settings I'm not really surprised that it did. When it works properly (the AMD onboard video with an AMD video card) you can actually use both at the same time for running up to 4 (or 5 depending on video card) monitors at a time.

The end of the M$ note says "The hardware and software on the system, the device or adapter, or cable does not support the DisplayPort /DockPort or MHL alternate modes." Now since a regular USB port works (2.0 even) for DisplayPort that leaves MHL. Maybe you need one of these.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 HDD damaged without any warning last week and cannot be repaired, so i had to replace it with another HDD. Everything works fine after that except that when i plugged in my AC adapter, the power warning message “The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or higher for best system operation" will appear, and my battery will not charge.

Previously this power warning message will occur only when i didn't plug in properly and it worked fine after i replug the adapter. Since i changed my HDD, this warning message appears everytime i turn on my laptop. I tried updating the BIOS but it doesn't help, the problem is still there. I suspect that my AC adapter is damaged but when i tried it with another Inspiron 6400, it worked fine without the warning message appearing, that shows that there isn't any problem with my AC adapter..

Any solutions for this? I hope i don't have to change the motherboard or whatsoever, because my laptop is out of warranty. Is it something to do with the configuration? - since i formatted my computer and reinstalled everything..

thanks heaps for any comments!
 

Answer:Power adapter type cannot be determined after replacing new HDD

You may have a damaged DC jack in the laptop if the adapter works on another laptop, which would go with you replugging the power adapter to clear the error in the past. Its not uncommon for the jacks to break from the motherboard and require re-soldering, in some cases the jacks crack or break and need to replaced. To get at the jack you will need to have the laptop completely disassembled.

P.S. 'spoiled' isn't not the correct term to use with failed electronics.

If I strike F2 and go into the bios it says "AC adapter type    unknown"
If I strike F1 to continue boot-up it boots into windows and then the battery indicator shows "Plugged in, Not charging"

Sometimes after a few connections begins to charge my battery, and it is a day where you do not try to charge.
But I found a solution, which is always charge my battery.
when i turn off the system, and then pulled out the battery. I push the button 'power on' for 10 seconds. And then I put back the battery and plug the charger. I turn on the system and everything works.
But once again, disconnect and plug the charger that stops charging

Hi WLODZIAK,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Since you have replaced the adapter, if the battery has good health, then then next part to be replaced would be the dc port - you would need this part - http://bit.ly/2d2vuCc
If nothing works, the motherboard might be at fault. 
If the system is under warranty, Please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name, Phone#, Address and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

If it's over a year, first thing to try is a new OEM Dell AC adapter -- most computer shops should have one you can try.  If that fixes it, replace the AC adapter.  If not, replace the DC power jack:
www.newegg.com/.../Product.aspx
And if that doesn't solve it, it's the charge circuit itself that's bad -- replace the mainboard.

Hi! I don't know what's the cause of my problem and will be appreciated for any info.
Suddenly, I started getting this message, when I turn my laptop on. It won't recognize my AC adapter, and won't charge the battery.
I have Dell Inspiron 6400/1505, windows XP.
I tried to flash BIOS, took out and put back in the battery. Check the plug, it looks ok. Battery's LED lights show it works fine.
I saw that so many people have this problem, but did not find any ways to solve it. Or any reasons why it happened. If anybody knows what to do, please share with us regular PC users.

The Spectre x2 12 detachable is capable of charging through the two Type-C USB ports. The HP Type-C USB adapter charges using these two ports. However, no third party Type-C USB chargers (even with Power Delivery specifications) will charge this device. Meaning, there is no benefit to charging via Type-C since this device can only use the HP adapter charger. Another HP device that charges via Type-C USB, the Spectre 13.3 (HP Spectre 13-v151nr), received a BIOS update (F.26 Rev.A; sp77130.exe) in August that allows charging through third party Type C-USB chargers like Google and Apple chargers (see below in yellow;"- Expands support for the USB Type-C adaptor."). I am requesting a similar Type-C charging adapter BIOS update for the HP Spectre x2 - 12-a008nr, to remove the limitation described above. Not allowing to be charged through Type C chargers manufactured by Google and Apple is absurd. If you would please,  use the Power Delivery specifications that these reputable vendors use, and that you also used for the 13.3, and allow this device to truly be fantastic. Thank you! Below is the notes from the BIOS update for the 13.3:Fixes - Fixes an issue where certain keys generate the incorrect character when the keyboard on the system is used.- Fixes an issue where certain keys do not generate a character when the keyboard on the system is used.- Expands support for the USB Type-C adaptor.- Provides enhanced BIOS password security.- Provides enhance...

My Dell XPS 13 has recently been unable to recognize my AC adapter. I've tried several outlets and chargers, but to no avail. Once I plug the charger into the laptop, the charging light on my Dell lights up for a second but turns off immediately after.
I am unable to get past the Dell SupportAssist and it seems to be an endless loop that won't allow me into my desktop. 
Would I be able to bypass the "AC Adapter Unknown" error by using Google's Pixel 2 charger? It would allow me to charge through Dell's USB-C port instead. Has anyone tried this method or has solved the issue in any other way?
Thanks for any help at all!

Normally when you insert a pccard into the slot you should feel a slight resistance at the end. After that the ejection pin pops out. also a card should fit in there completely. Now if i test a working pccard (32 bits gold connector) in this r500, it can not fit it in there completely. Also there is no resistance or connection. It will slide in loosely and does not connect. The last centimeter of the card will not fit in the adapter. No new device is found. I tested this in linux as well in windows7. I conclude the physical connection  between the card and the adapter is not there. So perhaps this is a hardware flaw ? Or perhaps i am missing something obvious.if i look closely into the slot, i can see there is a metal pin at the left side deep inside the slot, wich blocks access to the connection pins. It prevents my cards from beeing inserted completely. * I wonder if anyone has found this same problem.* also has anyone found a normal userguide for his laptop ? (r500 2714) i can only find the Hardware maintenance and safetey manuals. Thanks for your responses.

Answer:r500 2714 pcmcia/cardbus type i/ii adapter does not work.

Aha, the metal pin blocking access is released when the grey releasebutton is in the 'ejected' state. Now i can fit the pccard type in there. (32 bit pcmcia) These have a gold plated connector on the card and has the word pccard on it.the old style 16 bit cards dont seem to fit. Maybe this info will help other users. Still i would like to see a r500 usermanual in wich i cold have read this * Does anyone know where to find the usermanual ? regards

Hi, It's been a couple of weeks since I bought my Thinkpad E570 (Product SKU 20H5CTO1WW). Since I live in Greece and the laptop is on its way to me (I had it delivered to a friend of mine in UK), I'd like to know what kind of ac adapter the laptop is equipped with. If it's universal (110/220V) then I suppose an adaptor from type G to type F plug would suffice, otherwise I will probably need a new ac adapter. So, can anyone help me with my question? I forgot to ask my friend about it, I just realized about the different power plugs today. Regards,Vas

Answer:Thinkpad E570 ac adapter type (bought from Lenovo e-shop)

Welcome to the forum.
 
> If it's universal (110/220V) then I suppose an adaptor from type G to type F plug would suffice
 
ThinkPad AC chargers are designed to work with input voltages from 110VAC to 240VAC so the charger that's shipped with your E570 will be just fine. If your new E570 was bought in the UK then yes, you'll need a G to F adapter to fit local power outlets.

I have an XPS 12 9250 with an external Dell Adapter USB Type C to HDMI/VGA/Ethernet/USB 470-ABQN.  This adapter is working for Ethernet and VGA, but the USB port is not working.  I suspect that I need the correct drivers installed.  When I plug in my windows phone or my android phone, both devices show that they are charging, but windows 10 does not indicate that it sees the devices.  If I plug in an external keyboard to the adapter's USB port, windows 10 does not react, and the keyboard lights do not come on (keyboard works fine on 2 other computers).
So, I'm pretty sure I've installed all the latest drivers that are listed on support.dell.com for the xps 12 9250, but it's hard to tell as there seem to be scores of them.
Is anyone else having this problem?  Can anyone tell me which specific drivers I need to get USB working?  Thank you

Today I was working for a couple of hours without any problems on my Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, processing many files and saving them over my network folders.

Suddenly, at one point, when I was about to save a file over a network folder, the system asked me whether I want to turn file sharing and network discovery on.

Hmmm... I believe I had set it up many weeks ago right after system installation and haven't touched it since then. I've also noticed that my LAN network status was somehow changed to "Public" (the same happened to my Kaspersky Internet Security firewall settings related to networks, but as far as I know it reads those information from the system settings).

Can such things happen like that? I know it is possible to manually change network type and turn on/off files sharing and network discovery but I haven't do so for sure. I don't thing there's a hotkey combination that does so and I could select it accidentally. Thus, I believe the system might have changed / reseted it by itself, but... it's simply odd.

Answer:Can network type reset when working?

Most likely Kasperksy got amnesia. Possible that it updated, which caused this. I really do not see a need to use a firewall on your personal LAN, when behind a NAT or decent router with good firewall rules. It is really overkill on a personal LAN, to use a product like this. Now if the unit is going to be used off of the LAN. Then yes by all means use the Firewall, when on Public networks.

Hello everyone, and thanks in advance.

Using Photoshop 7.01 for Windows, I cannot do now what I have done hundreds of times before: add Type to an image.

Old images with type can be edited with no problem. But with all new files created, the type does not appear on the image. (I have been in the RGB mode).

The only possible cause of the problem (that I can think of) is that I have been using InDesign recently, and perhaps (in InDesign) I have changed the color mode in repsonse to a dialogue box.

I'm perplexed and anxious-- I need my Type Tool to work!.

Suggestions deeply appreciated.

--RB
 

Answer:Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

Iíve never had InDesign mess with my PS settings.

In the toolbar are the little boxes arranged with the black box upper left and the white box lower right? Or is the type color you have selected in the upper left box. If the white is in the upper left you print white. The two tiny boxes below and to the left will switch it back if you just want black and white. The double arrows above and to the right will swap the background and foreground.

I hope it is as simple as that.

New T400s in use for a few days. It was working good on 802.11 connection. Put in to suspend for lunch. Came back to resume operation and there is no Wireless anywhere on the system. * There is no wireless card that I can see is shown in the Device Manager,* There is no "Wireless Link" control panel, nor Bluetooth or anything else wireless.* In the Network Connections dialog, I only see "local area connection." Know that the wireless switch is in the "on" position, by the way. I also checked the BIOS setup utility (config/network) and made sure that everything that I can see is enabled.  Ctrl+F5, it shows "no supported wireless adapters(802.11 WAN or bluetooth) are installed in this system". Wireless card has been reseated, bios reset. No wireless shows in PC Doctor Dianostics pre OS boot. I've removed power management software.It makes no sense to replace Realtek wireless card. Is this a system board failure...hard to belive... Any thoughts.  

Answer:T400S Wireless just quit working Type: 2801

Hei bg27140, Maybe you will feel a little better knowing that my T400 just did exactly the same - it also lost any trace of wireless after suspend and resume. IBM technician suggested that they are seeing this problem quite often and that re-setting BIOS to defaults sometimes helps. I guess you already did that. As for me, I just shipped my T400 to the repair center, so I am now waiting with fingers crossed that they will return it soon, in one piece, and hopefully, with functioning wireless. Alltogether, I am expecting to be without my laptop for at least 2 weeks because of this. Not fun at all if you are in mid of writing a master thesis.

Surface Pro 4 Type Cover not working after Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

I have noticed in Device Manger that under Human Interface Devices that Wacom Device has a yellow triangle.

If I look at Wacom Device Properties I see Device status --- This device cannot start (Code10) STATUS_DIVICE_DATA_ERROR.

I have install latest driver with no luck.

Any ideas how to solve problem?

Thank you.

Answer:Surface Pro 4 Type Cover not working after Anniversary Update

I ran into that too with Win 10 Anniversary update. It totally disabled my Type Cover. According to Microsoft and some folks on the web, the force reboot works.

I took the dive and did a hard reboot of my Surface Pro 4 (Microsoft warns that do this only with Surface Pro 4) This is verbatim from Microsoft:

Use this two-button shutdown process to make sure your Surface is turned off completely.
Step 1:
Press and hold the power button on your Surface for 30 seconds and then release it.

Step 2:
Press and hold the volume-up button and the power button at the same time for at least 15 seconds, and then release both.
The screen may flash the Surface logo, but continue holding the buttons down for at least 15 seconds. (this is the scary part. Note that I saw the BIOS screen came on within 3 - 4 seconds... but you need to continue to hold like Microsoft said. The screen went off for me then on again with the BIOS screen then off.. that's when I released the buttons)

Step 3:
After you release the buttons, wait 10 seconds.
Press and release the power button to turn your Surface back on.
And that did it for me. You would think Microsoft would test their Win 10 Anniversary update on their own Surface Pro devices... oh well.

Hi,

I am running windows 10 x64 pro. There were recent updates that were installed. I am not stuck with an irritating problem. I am used to, and like, the feature where I can push the start key and then type what I wanted to run. For example I could push start and type chr and then chrome would be selected in a list and I could push enter and chrome would load. Since the update if I push start and type nothing happens. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

System:
Windows 10 as above
Gigabyte gaming 5
intel i7 4770k @ 4.2Ghz
16gb DDR3 RAM at 1600Mhz
2 x Geforce 980 in SLI

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Start and type feature not working with latest update

By any chance did you disable Cortana in any way? I ask because when I do what you said above the "Cortana" search box opens.

Create restore point, better safe than sorry.

Please also try the "Search and Index" troubleshooting tool. Start Control Panel, type troubleshooting in search bar. As your search may not be working switch out of Category view, select icons. Click on trouble shooting. When window opens, upper left, click view all. Find Search and Indexing, click, window opens, click on Advance, run as administrator, click next. I found if it finds problem it can't fix, at least in Updates, I run again.

Odd problem. Suddenly when doing a search in Yahoo the display font of the results is not correct. It is not clear type. Everywhere else clear type works fine. Everywhere.

I have done system restore to a point I know it was working and that did not resolve it. I have disasbled and reenabled clear type text both in Windows and in IE8.

I did do all the Windows updates on Tuesday but I can't think how one of those would effect only Yahoo Search.

I recall this happening on my old system for one user and not another and we could never resolve it. It was summized that it was a corrupt profile but I can't understand how it would only effect Yahoo.

Any ideas how I can get the Yahoo search results to have the proper font? Otherwise it's off to Google but I'd rather resolve this..

Answer:Clear Type text not working but only in Yahoo search

After more than a month, as mysteriously as the problem appeared the clear text on Yahoo is back to normal. I really think it was their issue.

1) My 2 year old ACER Aspire 5 keyboard just stop working in a couple of capacities. First, the numbers on the 10 key wouldn't type at all. Checked Num Lock, fine, then tried to type numbers at top of keyboard, well, some typed the right number but most didn't or typed more than one number.

2) Ran Webroot Anti-spyware and Anti-Virus, clean. Then I shook my computer to see if any crumbs or foreign materials were throwing something off, clean. Took out battery, nada.

3) Restored computer to the day before any problems. Changed nothing. Pressed every key to see if something was stuck or key broken. None.

4) The Delete, Backspace, Enter and Space Bar do NOT work at all. So basically, the entire keyboard is not working due to something. If I type any one key, some of them type what I wanted but continue to type the letter or number until I log out of my Google Engine.

5) I have always had issues with the keyboard. I will be typing along and the cursor will randomly go back to previous sentences and start typing what I am currently typing. It is so annoying. Why is it hopping all over the place?

6) A computer major friend who teaches computer classes said to write to Google and maybe I would find others with similar problems. I found several "sticky keys" problems but none on point with none of the keys working or working properly. He suggested perhaps a Trojan Horse virus but my sweeps come up clean...

7) Can anyone help me???

Thank you,
Shawnascy

Answer:Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing...

It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.

Dear all, After the latest, mandatory, Windows Update, my wifi card stopped working. I have fully resetted the laptop (clean instal with the NOVO button) and then it works - until the Update is installed again. I've tried installing the newest drivers - 19.0.1.1 - no effect. I've disabled and uninstalled al WAN miniports (my supplier told me to try that) - no effect. My supplier (Paradigit from NL) says that they're not responsible... How can I fix the wifi problem? Kind regards, Luuk

Hi all,  I've recently upgraded my X1 carbon to Windows 10 and suddenly my mic stopped working. I've tried downloading and installing all the necessary drivers but to no avail. I appreciate all your input.  Thanks all!

Both of my USB ports are not working after upgrading to Windows 10. I tried them with thumb drive and USB mouse, both can be found as connected device, but indicates missing driver. Both devices can work properly on other machines. Bios and all the drivers are all updated to the latest version. Lenovo Download page has USB3.0 driver for windows 7 and 8.1 only, nothing for Windows 10.  I called technical support, but it was not helpful at all. They just checked update using Lenovo Companion and went to the Download page to look for driver, which I have done myself before calling them. And the only suggestion I got is to downgrade to Windows 8. It is clearly that Lenovo should release USB3.0 driver for Windows 10. I asked the technical support person if there is anyway to report this issue to Lenovo to releasea new driver. I was surprised that he seems to have no access to provide feedback to Lenovo, and I was told filled up the "website satisfaction survey" to report this myself.  Since this is a 3rd Gen machine bought just 3 month ago, and I see this machine is now sale with Windows 10 installed, I don't think it should be unsupportive to Windows 10. Please let me know if there is a better place to report this or get help with this issue.

Wondering if anyone can assist.  Upgraded to Windows 10 a few months ago and the touch screen was working fine and within the last month it stopped functioning.  I have googled many help topics, and many suggest that I access my Device manager and click on the Human Interface Devices section find  HID-compliant touch screen.  The only problem is the HID-compliant touch screen is not listed as an option.  Does anyone have any suggestions on fixing this issue?

Hello there I'm a complete newbie so please be patient and gentle with me I'm no computer wiz either, my brother kindly gave my son a Lenovo thinkpad X200 Type 7459-VEY it came with a fresh install of Win 7 pro 64bit activated as he replace the hard drive, but there was 2 PCI conflicts I managed to sort those out, but when trying to get wifi it gives me nothing just says no connection. I made sure it was switched on from the side nothing pressed Function & F5 still nothing, my brother said to try other drivers of which I've done in device manager it shows wifi as Intel (R) Wifi link 5100 AGN nothing seems to work everytime I delete the driver it self installs but still nothing. We can't afford to buy my son a new laptop so this was a blessing as my son desperately needs it for school so we would be really greatful for any help that could be given. One other strange thing when I put the type number in is does'nt find the laptop and when I brought up the list with 100's of them there was no type like mine? So can't get the exact drivers I need. Thank you in advance and so hope someone can help. Kind Regards Skavillekrew

Hi, hope someone can help....My new usb wireless adaptor will not work on my 32-bit XP machine but it works perfectly on my Windows 7 PC.
My old 'wireless g' adaptor still works in the same usb port - albeit the signal is weak - so the port is fine. The driver installation seemed to go fine and windows device manager confirms this.
The green light is on but it can't detect the router (the same router that the device can detect when installed on the windows 7 PC) or any other wireless networks for that matter.
I've uninstalled, rebooted, then reinstalled but with the same results - no networks found.

The adapter is the TP-Link TL-WN722N. Wireless N capable and router supports N.

I'd be grateful for any help.
Thanks.

Hello, I recently build my own computer and everything went well. When tring to go into the BIOS (or safemode) I noticed that my USB keyboard would not respond. It would only respond after windows loaded. I figured the problem was probably in the Bios and what happened was that the USB option was not enabled there. So I ordered a PS/2 to usb adapter from ebay..the auction claimed it worked with keyboards. I just got the adapter today and it is green (color of mouse port). I plugged it into the purple port (keyboard port) and then tried it out just to find out that it does not work. The keyboard will not work at all when it is plugged into the PS/2 adapter. I can tell that no power is going into the keyboard because when I press caps lock or # lock the little leds wont turn on. The keyboard does not work at all with the adapter, even after windows is fully loaded. Thinking the adapter might not work i tried it with my USB mouse. I plugged the adapter into the green port (mouse PS/2 port) and saw that the laser of the mouse turned on (so it was receiving power). But even after loading windows fully the mouse will not respond.
Do I need any drivers or something to get the adapter to work? or was i scammed?
This is not urgent but I want to be able to get into the BIOS incase I ever need/want to?
What should I do?
Thanks in advance,
~Fertogo

Answer:PS/2 to USB adapter not working

You mean USB -> PS/2

A USB keyboard should work in any computer at boot-up. The only time when it is not detected at boot-up is a BIOS error.

Regardless of the color of your adapter, I should work in boot-up. Would you by chance have a PS/2 keyboard?
