Lap top runs great, But the display looks like a old NES game untill it is twisted counter-clockwise. Once twisted, and held there, it looks clear and responds as it should. Any help would be welcome.

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.)

Answer: A22m Type 2628-ttf Display issue

Had a similar kind of issue with the 390 E I an online with right now running AntiX Linux. On mine you had to slap both sides of LCD Screen to clear up screen. I took apart LCD screen (not all the way mind you. Just so I could move it out a little from Housing) And wiggled the ribbon cable that plugs in back of screen. Found that the sticky tape wasn't seating the cable in firmly to screen plug socket for cable. Cut me up some strips of clear duct tape. Applied pressure to ribbon cable to make sure it was seated firmly. Taped it in place with duct tape. Reassembled Screen on Laptop. Haven't had a problem since.

Answer:2628-XSG A22M

Did you also try with ony one RAM module in each RAM-socket?
 
Try MEMTEST86 and check memory over night.
I some cases it can happen, that a RAM-socket is weared out, so not all pins of the memory module get contact to the RAM-socket.

My Thinkpad a22m 2628 is running Windows 2000 SP4 and the drivers for the sound are installed acording to the computer and it seems to be utilizing the resources correctly. I have turned on the spekers themselves and they work fine under linux I know that it is a combo driver (CS4624/CS4297A) and I have installed to the letter of the drivers from the Lenovo website but still no sound with the speakers or headphone jacks any help would be appreciated.Thank you in advance

Answer:Thinkpad a22m 2628 no sound

Hello,
if you run the downloaded audio-package, it only will be extracted to C:\DRIVERS\W2K\Audio (or similar). You additionally have to execute the CRYSETUP.exe from there.
 
Please also read the "Readme" from download page for additional requirements to get sound.

According to this link, the A22m (2628) ThinkPad can have up to 512MB PC133 SODIMM's (2x 256MB).  So I bought 2x 256MB PC133 SODIMM's and...  it doesn't work.When I have both 256MB sticks in there, it doesn't turn on at all.  I can't even get to the BIOS.  When I have one 256MB stick in there and one of the original 128MB sticks in there, it sorta works.  I'm able to get to the BIOS and am told, in there, that the "installed memory" is 384MB.  Yet when I try to actually go past the BIOS, I get this message:Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system32\DRIVERS\pci.sys You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.That's not an error I get when I have the original 128MB SODIMM's in the laptop. Also, when I try to do as the message suggests, the Windows XP installer freezes.Any ideas as to what's wrong?Message Edited by yawnmoth on 01-27-2008 04:31 PM

I'm seeing something strange with the display.  When I move it, the screen goes to a negative of what should be there.  Has anyone seen this?  I ran the display tests, which pass, of course.  It seems to be a hardware issue.  This machine is brand new.

Answer:T61 Type 6459 display issue

Looks like you are having same problem as my laptop.I have a t61 type 7658.Screen goes blank/black sometimes, but comes back if you shake it lil bit.Display goes to 'Negative' sometimes and comes back to original after a while. Reading on other threads and forums, I think it has to do something with display connections/wire/loose hinges etc.Although even I am not sure. If you can resolve it, please let me know.thanks Akash

Answer:S5-371 dual display issue with type-c adapter

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.

I have Dell Inspiron 5547 laptop (Touch Screen, 15 inches, 16 GB RAM and i7 4th Gen processor, Out of Warranty). Some days back, suddenly the display went dim and anything is hardly visible. After some initial investigation, the display chip (may be VGA or LED display chip) on the motherboard appears to be burnt out (may be due to voltage surge). Even the numbers printed on the chip is not readable because of which it is difficult for the local repairing shops to repair this problem.
I think Dell India Service Center doesn't deal with chip level repair and hence replacing motherboard is the only way they can fix this. This will be very costly (considering that the laptop is not under warranty so will have to pay for warranty extension, motherboard replacement and repair service) and time consuming.
Hence, to avoid all this I have come here to seek some assistance.
If there are anyone using the same laptop (Inspiron 5000 series 5547 Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM) then could you please take a clear picture of your laptop's motherboard or if you recognize the display chip then only that should be sufficient. In this case, I can read the chip related number from the image and try to repair it.
What are the charges for buying a warranty for the laptop, motherboard of my laptop and repairing charge? 

Request your response and help.

Regards,
Rohit Kumar

Answer:Display Issue - Dim Display for Dell Inspiron 5000 (Model 5547) - Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM

You'll have to call Dell about the possibility of a warranty extension;  in the US, it's sometimes possible but will likely run over $300 -- or about what a board replacement would cost.
If you're getting video, the GPU is OK -- and it's more likely the power circuit to the backlight that's bad.  It'll likely cost as much to repair as to replace the board -- though you'll still be putting $300-400 into an out of warranty system, so replacing the system may be a better idea (if you do this, consider buying a 3-year warranty with the next system).

Hi Carlosros,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with mini Display port on your ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
 
Please uninstall the current Windows updated graphic driver from the system and download the latest driver from Lenovo support site and install it, sometime compatible drivers will not support for the external monitor.

Answer:thinkpad a22m

Some viruses could be able to manipulate text (I once had one that swapped the keyboard layout) Try reinstalling windows, if the problem still persists, make sure the keyboard is connected nicely (no dirt or blockages) If it still doesn't work, just buy a new IBM thinkpad, there are literally hundreds of more advance thinkpads for under 100$ on ebay and other places (assuming they are not top-of-the-line). Regards,

A22m 2628-p2u Laptop worked flawlessly for number of years.  I did not use it for some time and when went to do so, would not boot. When I press power button, I see a flash of the power LED and a 'normal' initial sound from the floppy, but that's all Removed all options - RAM, DVD, HDD, MiniPCI, Laptop - let sit for some time - powered with just power supply and no options, same resulthave also replaced CMOS battery Any ideas?

Answer:A22M - Boot Problems

Welcome to the Lenovo Community!
 
Can you confirm that the LED power light only flashes for about 1/10 second when you push the power button?  If so, and there's no other signs of activity (beside the floppy drive) - no fan spinning, beeps, video, etc., then your system may have come down with a case of the "Blink of Death".  I have a T21 and a T22 with this problem.  You might be able to get the system going again by removing all power (battery and AC) from the system for a week or two.
 
If the LED power light remains on, the fan is spinning and the floppy make it's usually accessing sounds, then maybe the problem is that the LCD's backlight is not turning on.  That could be due to a stuck lid switch, a defective LCD ribbon cable, a bad inverter or a burned out backlight.  In any event, try connecting an external monitor and see if there's any activity there. You may have to press the Fn+F7 key combination after the system has been turned on to activate the external video port.

One long beep ( lasting about 1 sec ), every once in a while, no errors, no noticeable problem with the operation of the laptop. This started happening when I upgraded memory ( swapped out a 64MB IBM module with Kingston KTM-TP390X/128 ) and hard drive over a year ago. I run Win2k. I just upgraded memory again swapping out the Kingston memory with a Samsung 256MB module but I still get the one long beep now and then. All memory is recognized and utilized. I've never seen any documentation on what just one long beep means. Any ideas? I'm just about ready to open this laptop up and destroy that speaker.

Answer:A22m, one long beep help

Welcome to the forum! The only "one beep" issue I've seen described is mated with no display on LCD, so that's clearly not the case here... Personally, I'd let it run as long as it chooses to and not worry about it... Good luck.

Hi Everyone,

I really need help! I have a IBM ThinkPad A20m type 2628 Pentium III 700MHz 128MB 12gig HD with Windows 2000 Pro. I do own System Suite 5 and it's updated weekly with AV and backups done religiously. I was copy some pics to floppy when it locked up and I had to reset it. It never booted again. I get a blue screen that Say's "STOP :<0x814418B0, 0xC0000032, 0x00000000, 0x00000000>(0x8148B910, 0x0000007B, 0x8142F450 these show up intermittently) inaccessible_boot_device. Check for Viruses, remove any new configuration. Run CHKDSK /F (tried"Command not known") to check for HD corruption then restart computer. Refer to manual for troubleshooting stop errors." Now, I found I can't get it to boot at all, even in "safe" mode or any of the options after pushing the F8 key to get to the advanced options.

Hi,A friend has given me their Thinkpad A20m (2628-11A) for me to change their CMOS battery but I am unable to find it. There are a couple of panels on the back that I have opened but I can't see the battery in there. I've tried to open the machine up (first time inside a notebook for me) and I've undone as many screws as I can find but I can't get the bottom to come off. Can anyone advise me how to get to the CMOS battery?ThanksAdam

I recently bought a used ThinkPad A20M-2628 for my kid to use. I wiped out the entire HD and reinstalled Windows XP and came back with the sound icon crossed out/muted. After unmuting there is no sound. I WAS gettgin a system beep for a little while but now thats gone too.I've seen this issue unresolved all over the net so I'm coming to the source for the solution.I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver that comes with XP.I've tried usign 2 other drivers. One for Win2k and a generic Crystal driver.Windows Audio service is enabled and running.Sound is unmuted.PC is plugged in Is there a bios setting causing an inturrupt?An updated driver? You site says to use the driver with XP.What am I missing?Thanks for whatever help I can get!

Answer:ThinkPad A20M-2628 reinstall no sound

Welcome to the forum! I'm likely grasping at straws here, but when you've downloaded the XP driver from Lenovo's site, have you followed up by unpacking it from the appropriate directory? Good luck and let us know.

I have a rather ancient A22m and the entry for the Lucent Win Modem in Device Manager shows a problem (no drivers loaded).  The modem driver matrix at IBM.com doesn't list the A22m as a supported model type (although there is an entry for "Lucent AL modem or Intel Pro/100 SP Mini PCI combo card A2*, A3*, T2*, X2*). I tried letting Win XP search Windows Update, and if found an Agere driver, but failed to load it.  I went to modemsite.com, which claims to have the latest driver for the Lucent (now Agere) Win Modem (8.3.0) and downloaded that, but that too failed to load. Is the modem just fried?  I don't actually use the modem much (it's just for backup), but it would be nice to get it operational again.

Hello all, I need your feedback on this one! I have an IBM A22m laptop and about a week ago it started making clicking noises when ever I turned it on, meanwhile the system was trying to boot up and never succesfully did. The clicking woul stop after 45 secs and to boot up just so i could tell me that something was wrong would take about 5 mins. I removed the memory modules and switched out the hard drive (just in case it was the hard drive going out) but still no such luck and the clicking and delay is still there. The OS never boots up. The only features I get are the F1 for set up and F12 to boot from a device. After attempting to reinstall XP, the whole process stalls and says that hard drive cannot be found, press any key to exit. Do any of you all know what it maybe? Could it be the motherboard? Or just a simple connection? Please help me! Thank you all in advance for any info.

the message:

Hard drive not installed.
If operating system not found,
re-install hard drive.
Hit any key to exit.

Pressing any key takes me to a black screen, where the following info repeats over and over:

My ThinkPad A21m (2628-F2U, PIII 750 MHz (256KB), 512 MB RAM) works very efficiently with Windows 2000 SP4 and seems to work better on the internet with dial-up, than my higher-powered, 2GB RAM Windows XP computers). Unfortunately, it is now difficult to get anti-virus and firewall software that are compatible with Windows 2000. (I suspect - but haven't had the chance to fully investigate it yet - that my A21m would not meet the hardware specifications for the current versions of anti-virus and firewall software anyway. I was wondering whether switching to Linux, Ubuntu, or some other operating system would help or would only add to my woes. If I switched to Linux, for example, would the Thinkpad drivers and software work with the new operating system? Would most other programs, such as Outlook Express, Microsoft Office, and so on, work with the new operating system? If anyone has had experience with the problem of Windows 2000 no longer being supported by anti-virus and firewall providers, I would appreciate your suggestions and comments. Thank you.

I had the same problem with my A21m (2628 - GXU PIII 800 MHz) a few years ago, so I upgraded it to Windows XP Professional (SP3). My machine is also fully loaded with 512 MB of RAM,  I then installed Norton as the anti-virus/firewall software. I have to admit that the machine is rather sluggish though.

I've got a Thinkpad A20m 2628-11U that has an IBM Travelstar 10gig Drive in it.  After using the laptop for about half an hour, the drive warms up and gets to the point of someone using a hammer and chisel to store data.  So I decided to purchase a WD250BEVE (PATA) drive to replace it.  Right off the bat, The laptop would not recognize the drive at all.  I've tried updating the bios and such to no avail.  I've even RMA'd the drive with western digital questioning them along the way as to the possibility of why their drive would not work in this unit.  They show no record of complaint.  When the new drive showed up, I got the same results.  Can anybody tell me if IBM put a drive or Brand limit on this unit or have any idea why a WD would not be recognized at all? Thanks for your time... Gary

Answer:Hard Drive Upgrade on a Thinkpad A20m 2628-11U

Welcome to the forum! Have you properly inserted the drive, because that's the reason for drive not being "seen" by the machine 90% of the time, and that can be tricky on A2x and A3x unit...make sure it's sitting properly in its caddy and is pushed in all the way. Even if your machine had a BIOS limit (137GB for older ThinkPads) the drive would still be recognized. There are no "brand restrictions" on ThinkPads of this generation. Hope this helps.

Welcome to the forum! You have to push the machine pretty hard (open 10 Firefox windows and run Photoshop at the same time) to get the CPU to work at maximum speed. That is one of the ideas behind Intel's SpeedStep that your A22m has. Graphic cards as old as yours are not supported by Vista or W7.   Hope this helps.

Okay. Try this one on for size. My wife's PC's video display stopped working one day (this was covered on another thread). I have a Nvidia 8500 GT vid card in my PC, so I popped her 8600 GT into my PC to test if the card was working. It was, but it apparently loaded the drivers for the new card with my already existing drivers. I had a lot of freezes at boot after that. I decided to go through the long process of uninstalling the nvidia drivers and installing the correct ones. This solved my freeze problem, but a couple of days later after my PC had booted, this problem happened. Let me to try to describe it as best as I can. Out of the corner of eye, I saw the screen going wild. I looked at it and it looked like it was going in circles. Or like someone was taking their finger and drawing circles on the screen. When it was done circling, the display looked like a very very bright and colorful "safe mode" screen desktop except you could only make out what you actually knew from the screen and the PC was locked. This is the strangest part. In the middle of the colorful screen, there was an image that looked like a picture of the top of the processor. It was green and had the same brass line patterns that would appear if you were looking at a processor. I shut it down and checked to see if the vid card was locked in properly. It seemed to be, so I rebooted. Everything seemed fine for bit, then the screen went blank (black). I gave up and put the monitor into ... Read more

Answer:Change display type at R500

you mean you want to swap out the WXGA for a WSXGA+? yes you can do that, but that would void your warranty and there is good chance you may damage other parts of the laptop if you are not careful.

I started having issues yesterday, the day after I installed teamviewer a program that is on my iPad also to remotely control the laptop. At first the screen started freezing when I was in the middle of a Java game. So I restarted the laptop only to have it freeze at the main screen (after login).

The screen would freeze the display would change to a very low resolution (I think). So I kept restarting it only to repeat. Until eventually once past the windows logo the screen would turn black and blank. Sometimes the display would turn on black and blank and other times it would do that after the logo.

A few times I managed to get it to go into safe mode and I restored to a few days ago but it made no difference, I also tried many other things like changing some settings but nothing worked.

So after like 2 or 3 hours I Rolled back and disabled "nvidia quadro nvs 135m" (since I read it might be causing the issue and I should uninstall it which I couldn't), once I disabled it I restarted the computer and made it to the main screen without issues, and I could even load my game. I enabled it again And restarted the computer only to have the same issues so I disabled it again after finally getting into safe mode.

I don't know if it works fine now, I left it on at most for 5-10 minutes without any issues and I never actually logged into the game to see if it works.

Since few days I have my Thinkpad not getting starting up. I did find some  bits and pieces information in forums, but would look to confirm if it would need a motherboard replacement, which is a costly affair and I really am not sure if I should go for it or better go for a new laptop. It is a 15"  T42P (type 2373 N49) having 2GB RAM, 128 MB ATI Mobility FIREGL T2 and a 9 cell battery. I got it from a reseller in ebay about 10 months back (I got an additional 1gb RAM while i got from him) and till now I am more than impessed by the system's performance and I admire it a lot ; very good power for my use and great display. Recently (before this issue appeared) I had noticed heating in the underside and also near the touchpad, which was slightly above than what I used to feel in the past. And one day while a video was being played it all went frozen and got hung. later it wouldnt boot up too. Just before it went frozen, there were some grainy lines/area (covering quite some portion in the screen) giong on and off. A few days before this incident when the laptop was used to play movies kept on a bed and during then I had felt some over heating too. I now regret this because I do think- that might have caused some overheating to the unit because of the underside vents getting no air circulation while kept on a bed or similar surface which is not firm. I took it to a local service shop-he was able to boot it up and run it for some time, while pressing the back....

Answer:T42P Display problem / overheating? / ATI display processor issue?

replacing the GPU??? It is soldered onto the motherboard, and the problem with video display is not the GPU itself, but rather the GPU is coming loose from the motherboard, so i don't see how the GPU replacement is solving the issue. There is also the chance that the overheating in GPU due to improper ventilation that is causing problem. i will be highly suspicious of what the person says (probably trying to fool you). The GPU used in the T42p is extremely rare, and i would highly doubt that he can obtain an example from anywhere, these laptop GPU are NOT something you can get from some supplier just like that.Message Edited by lead_org on 05-25-2009 10:25 AM

I own a Lenovo 4446 laptop which I received from my disability support team at Uni 4yrs ago, my laptop now has developed a problem of the screen going green purple and pink The problem started 2 and a half years ago when my cat jumped on the laptop while it was on my cinema surround sound sub woofer, but I never thought anything of it as it corrected itself during power up, but with prolonged usage its developed further and is now constantly green purple and pink.
 
After reading through some of the forums I am pretty sure its something to do with the ribbon cable which goes into the screen on the left hand hinge. I have had problems with this before over the last 18months but I just wiggled the cable and it corrected itself, but now regardless of wiggling the cable my screen remains green purple and pink, what repairs would any of you recommend to fix the problem?

Answer:G530 Type 4446 display problems

hi flstf21,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
What I would do first in this scenario is to attach an external monitor. If the display is ok, I would replace the LCD cable that can be ordered here and see the LCD ribbon replacement guide here, or video guide here.
 
 
Hope this helps.

Sometimes I enlarge the view size of type in Firefox (Ctrl+++). When I open a new tab, the new tab opens in the same large size.

Is there a way to get Firefox to open new tabs in standard sized type by default?
 

Answer:Problem with type display size in Firefox

Hi Alex,

In your Address bar type about:config and click go.
In the filter line type browser.zoom and find the line browser.zoom.siteSpecific in the list.
Right click it and click Toggle to set it to false.

You'll still be able to enlarge and reduce in the normal way on any tab or window, but it won't carry over to other tabs and windows.

Hi Guys, I have just placed an order for an X230T with 12.5 Outdoor HD Display. I did quite a bit of research before making my choice. I was sure that the Outdoor HD display was touch sensitive, however, you do not get the "Multitouch" features and it's far less sentsitive than the Multitouch display. However, I just watched this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLNlSONqX_0 Something he said was something like "This is available with and without the touch sensitive display". Surely, he means "with or without the multi-touch" display as I don't see the option for a non-touch sensitive display. I would asume, since the 12.5 Outdoor HD screen appears to be an "optional upgrade" when you are ordering direct from Lenovo, that this display is still touch sensitive? What is the difference between the 12.5 Multitouch HD and 12.5 Outdoor HD display types? Can someone helpe me out here?













Solved!

Answer:X230T: Display Type: 12.5 Multitouch HD or 12.5 Outdoor HD

Hi, It's a strange issue. FullHD : 1920 x 1080HalfHD (HD) : 1280 x 720 My Windows display properties are set to FullHD.DirectX diagnostics also show it as FullHD. However, as strange as it may seem, the output is not FullHD. The best known way for me to test was to go to browsers that "show my screen resolution". They are accurate and I have been using it for quite some time now, being a web developer that I am.Now, all of those websites refer the screen resolution as 1280x720. Another way to check the resolution is to pull out the browser developer tools, drag to change the browser width and check the changing screen resolution. Can anyone with a similar model confirm this behaviour?Any suggestions or tools that I can use to check the screen output instead of just relying on the browsers?

Hi everyone

I am new to the forum and really dying on figure this out.
I usually trying to uninstall programs by checking when they were installed in the date modified column in the uninstaller

The column does not display any data no more, and empty column

So I go to uninstaller, there is a list of programs, but nothing under the column date modified

Any suggestion is appreciated thank you thank you thank you!

Answer:Uninstaller Does Not Display Date Modified and Type

Open Control Panel > Uninstall a program (or Programs and Features)

If need be, select Detail view via the upper right corner:

Right click on one of the column heading bars and select the desired columns from the context menu.

Select More... if desired.

I have a rather old ThinkPad - a A22m 2628-TSU - that I just recently reformated and installed with Windows XP.I'm now trying to install the software that'll let you adjust the volume with the volume buttons and that'll show the batteries status and am having some difficulty doing so.  I would have thought that Keyboard Customizer Utility for Windows 2000, XP - ThinkPad and ThinkPad Power Management driver for Windows Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 98 SE - ThinkPad would have done the trick, but alas, it appears that they do not.  I ran the *.exe that I downloaded, which created a C:\DRIVERS directory, and I then ran the setup files within each of the newely created directories, but that didn't help.  So what will help?Also, unrelated to this...  whenever I try to visit lenovo.com, in Firefox, on that computer, the computer freezes.  It doesn't do this in Internet Explorer and lenovo.com is the only page I've found that causes this problem in Firefox (well, the whole computer freezes, but it only happens while I'm using Firefox).  I know this is a short in the dark, but...  any ideas?

Answer:T40 Display Issue after installing new ATI Display Driver

you would need to get into your safe mode? can you do that? In the event you can't, you may want to take the hdd out and use a usb enclosure to transfer any files you have on the hdd into another computer. Then put the hdd back and try to go into rescue and recovery partition by pressing the blue IBM/Access key on the keyboard during laptop initial startup, this should take you to your recovery console and then select to recover to previous backed up condition or full recovery to factory condition. If that don't work, then you would need to reinstall the OS using an aftermarket OS disc from scratch.

Hi,
I took in my laptop hp g6-2138 sa for a thermal service and to fit a new keyboard to my local repair shop. There was minor water damage to the keyboard (I mean a few drops, and it happened 8 months ago, the shop looked on the motherboard and said there was no corrosion.)
It was returned Friday and seemed to work but on Saturday it stopped working. The screen showed no display but had a backlight. Took it back to the shop incase there was a loose connection, they found that the connector slot had shorted and melted on the motherboard video connector.
Now this seems like they've messed up, there's never been an issue with the display.
Do I have to pay for a repair or is it their job to sort it?
Any advice would be welcome.c

Answer:Laptop repair issue, display connector issue

As it was working when you took it in then I would think its up to them to repair.

Hello all. I've tried everything I could think of to get this working, so I figured it's time to ask the masses to help.

I just purchased a Vivitar Infinite BH6 Bluetooth Headset (Model:V12119-PDQ-OD), and on my Windows 8.1 machine the connection has been successful, however, I am unable to use them as a headset. My Gateway All-in-one is reading the headset Device Type as a Peripheral Keyboard. I have a screen shot: Vivitar Screenshot Troubleshooting.pdf. The small yellow marks mention the device type and the fact that I have selected the PC to use the this device for audio.

Hell, even in the system tray volume control one of the sound control options is a Bluetooth Speaker, and I have that selected. The headset informs me that it is paired from an automated voice after pairing. There seems to be no reason for these not to work. I have tested them on my cell phone and they work wonderfully, would love to get this working properly on my PC. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Answer:Bluetooth Device Type issue

It should show up as a Virtual Keyboard device if you are using it for Speech to text. If you are showing problems, I would suggest checking to see if Vivitar has a driver update.
