Lenovo ThinkPad x1 won't start after cleaning.

Question: Lenovo ThinkPad x1 won't start after cleaning.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and this is my first post here, I hope anyone can help me. I recently bought refurbised Lenovo ThinkPad X1 model 1294-A2Y and everything worked fine until I opened it. The reason for opening was looking for battery info, since the battery I got with the laptop was bad and I wanted to replace it. Here's what I did, i opened all as instructed, unscrewd all the parts, take the keyboard off but i didn't touch the processor cooling system. Than I put it all back together. When I pushed the power on button nothing happened, the laptop won't turn on. Than i tare it apart again, plug the battery and the power cord off and pressed the power on button for 20 seconds. After pluging the battery and the power cord laptop started fine, but the problem is that it works only for a few minutes and than turns off all of a sudden. And than it won't start again, and I need to tare all apart in order to turn it off again. Did anyone had a similar situation? Can anyone help me with this? Thank you in advance

Preferred Solution: Lenovo ThinkPad x1 won't start after cleaning.

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.)

Not for the first time I've been attempting to remove some of the pre-installed stuff on my Thinkpad E335 Win 7 Pro x64 and once again doing so has rendered the system unusable. I'm not talking about trial software versions and so on - there was none of that unwanted stuff on this machine - but there are a lot of Lenovo system utilities which cause it to be rather sluggish starting up though perhaps less so once up and running. I also installed Win 8.1 on the system and there is a marked contrast in responsiveness, Win 8.1 being far the lighter footed. Yet 8.1 has none of these system utilities which to my mind says simply that they are not necessary. Yet it seems they are so integrated into Win 7 that removing them damages 7 itself.

So, unless Lenovo users are confident of their ability to recover a borked system, I strongly advise not trying to remove any of this stuff and I'm also wondering how the upcoming Win 10 upgrade will deal with all these integrated utilities. If I only had the original Win 7 system I would be treading very carefully.

I don't know whether Lenovo are alone adding all this system management stuff - I guess not - so other makes might need to be treated carefully too.
 

Answer:Cleaning up a Lenovo Thinkpad

Lenovo is not alone, all the manufacturers are bundling software they think we need. I wish hardware manufacturers would only supply us with the necessary drivers and leave the rest to us. Afterall, we only need sites like MajorGeeks that tests and hosts software programs. And there's the Support Forums with invaluable advice.

Hey so I just got a T510 and I have realized that the back of my laptop is full of my finger prints due to opening and closing the screen. Now my question is, what cleaning tools do I use to wipe it off and make it look brand new again? This is probably the only thing I hate about this laptop, that every time you touch it, it leaves a mark  Please help me ! Thanks

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T510 body cleaning

Hi and welcome to the forum!I use a microfiber cloth and small chunk of water to clean my gears, but if something is really dirty and can't be cleaned through water then I apply tiny amount of soap to the wet cloth.There are many products available in the market too, but I don't trust any, YMMV.Lenovo Blogs has some tips too:- http://lenovoblogs.com/designmatters/?p=121Hope it helps.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 with start up problems.  In order to get the computer to start up, I have to unplug it, remove the battery, re-insert the battery and turn it on, once it starts the start up sequence, I can plug in the power cord. If I plug the cord in before I push the power button, all of the lights go out, and it does nothing.  I have tried several power supplies, and a new battery, even though the old battery seems to work.All of the updates are applied, including the latest bios update. The computer seems to work normally unless it goes into standby, then it just turns off. Any ideas what could be causing this? T60, 2623 KEU, Windows XP SP3

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T60 with start up problems

Sounds like a motherboard problem. Of course its hard to tell without looking at it.I would try removing memory modules or trying a new one, try removing the hard drive and witless card - also try removing the optical drive. I doubt any of those components would cause the problem you are having but it never hurts to try and these are the steps we would try as part of the troubleshooting process at our repair company.

Hey Community! We have an issue in our company: We have some above-named Laptops, but one of them doesn't start every week so I have to press the reset-button on the bottom of the device for 10 seconds, after that it starts successfully. In my opinion that isn't a solution for ervery time! The Laptop has warranty so can I get a new one, because it's an internal problem?

Have you tried to boot into the Rescue and Recovery environment (you should be able to do it by pressing ThinkVantage button on startup)? Here you should be able to access your antivirus and to clean your system. Or if nothing else works, to rescue your files at least.

I wonder if anyone else is having issues with windows 10 starting up slowly and lagging for 2-5 minutes. The desktop takes a while to load as does the task bar at the bottom of the screen. During these 2-5 minutes programs will start up slowly. The startup times on Windows 10 are very dissapointing compared to windows 8.1.

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 Windows 10 Slow Start Up

How did you upgrade to Windows 10? Did you do a clean install or keep your old programs and files? Sounds like you will need to do a clean install preferably from a USB drive using Microsoft's tool and then individually re-install the Lenovo apps from the Lenovo support page for Thinkpad Yoga 14. While I'm still having some issues myself, the clean install did get the boot up times and general performance back up to normal.  http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-clean-install-using-media-creation-tool#slide-0-field_...

So the volume down button works like the blue button. (but it also decreases the volume, like it's supposed to). How could I solve this problem? Thanks! (using Windows 7)

I've had this Thinkpad Edge E430 since 2012 and have loved it, but recently I've been having a problem with it. In order to start it up I have to start it at least twice, and now it seems that the AC adapter must be plugged in for it to start.What will happen the first time or when it's just running on the battery is that the red indicator light will turn on, and I will hear the fan and the harddrive start up, but the screen will remain black and the computer will not respond to anything. When I have it plugged in and try the second time, it will start up no problem, and there doesn't seem to be any response issues once the laptop is up and running. I thought it might be a battery problem, but it has the same start up issues when I took out the batter and just had the AC adapter plugged in. Any ideas what this might be?

Yes, it will delete all your data if SSD used in your system is FDE drive , as this software uses the mechanism to reset the Cryptographic Key used for encrypting the data.
 
What is FDE cryptographic erase?
"Each FDE drive has a unique encryption key, through which the data is processed real time as it is saved to the media.  Each FDE drive saves different bit patterns to the media given the same original data, while non-FDE drives save the same bit patterns to the media.  The cryptographic key is also used to decrypt the data.  If the encryption key is changed in any way, all data on the drive becomes useless bits.  The only way to read the data again would be to restore the originating encryption key."

Hello! I am new to this forum and I have a problem with my T420. I hope this is the right place to get feedback on my problem.I have a T420 and it gets quite hot at times. Idlle and light use CPU temperature is about 45-55C, but when I play games it goes up to over 90C for CPU and GPU runs at 70-80C. Load temps are WAY too high.Because my machine is still under warranty, I contacted my local Lenovo service (Kernel, Estonia) and they said that cleaning and repasting a computer is not a warranty case.So I figured that I might aswell clean and repaste the machine myself. I have cleaned MANY computers before and I repair electronics (stereo equipment mainly) for a living, so I will not have any problems doing that. HOWEVER, will taking my machine apart for a cleaning void the warranty? And will getting it done at a non-licensed repair shop void the warranty? Thanks in advance!

Answer:ThinkPad t420 cleaning

45-55C seems ok, but over 90C is not. In the U.S., I would expect that if I called service and simply said that it was running too hot and it was over 90C under load, they would service it. (I wouldn't suggest talking about cleaning or playing games.) I suggest calling again.

I have a ThinkPad W520-4282. I want to use a ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 (170W) [pn 433830U] at work and a Lenovo USB 2.0 Port Replicator with Digital Video [0A33942] at home.I did not have to install any drivers for the Mini Dock and it worked just fine driving an external monitor. After installing the driver for the Port Replicator, I could no longer drive the external monitor when attached to the mini dock or the VGA+ video port on the ThinkPad.I played with a lot of things to fix the situation and nothing worked. I even uninstalled the driver for the Port Replicator and still could not drive an external monitor. In fact the laptop did not even recognize that an external monitor was attached.Later I found using the Device Manager that the NVIDIA Qadro 1000M display adapter was disabled, proabably during installation of the Port Replicator driver. Once I enabled that, I could drive an external monitor again.Can anyone tell me if this is normal? Will I be able to use the Port Replicator if I install the driver again?

So I got myself the Lenovo ThinkPad W510 the other day, specific model being "431929G", along with it I got myself a 9-cell battery instead of the included 6-cell as well as this additional "slice battery" solutions which you attach at the bottom of the computer using the docking port it seems? The box which this slice battery came in was marked model 57Y4545, the piece of battery inside however says FRU: 42T4739? I guess and hope it's the same thing?  It does attach to the bottom of my W510 without any issues whatsoever, I lock it in place so I get that green indicator which should mean it's supposed to function? But it doesn't.. ThinkVantage Power Manager do pick up the battery but it's just standing there at 12% battery with no activity? Even after the main 9-cell is fully charged it wont start to charge the slice battery? I did even remove the main 9-cell in order to see whether or not that would change anything, but it didn't? And if I remove the power cord when running only the slice battery the W510 will just drop dead? So it's not charging, neither is it providing my W510 with any more battery life? It just sits the with 12% battery with no activity whatsoever, no charging or usage at all?

I got the same problem.... But first let me translate this for everybody here.  My P70 (or in my case P71) has a problem to keep the connection estimated between the Lenovo mouse and my Laptop. Got the current driver installed.  The German guy above me got the same issue after the creators update.   I set everything Bluetooth related in Device Manager up to NOT let windows turn of the device to save power.  The mouse cuts out for 5 sec and comes back on. If you turn the mouse upside down during that time I noticed that the battery led toggles on and off. So it reboots. So I assume it's driver related to because it worked perfectly fine before on the L530 guys machine.

trying to decide between the T540P/T550 and W541/W550s..... it will be for school and would like to have a 5th gen i series CPU but that's not top priority as other specs are the deciding factor for me. ether one needs dedicated graphics and 16 or 32 gb of ram with windows 7 and a 3K display.... do I really need an i7 for graphics and computer service/IT? what do you recommend?

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T540P/T440P vs Thinkpad W541/W550s

They are all good machines.  First thing I would say is that I would highly suggest sticking to the newer models that have physical trackpoint buttons above the touchpad instead of the large clickpad (e.g. the T540p).  Even if you only use the touchpad, the newer one is significantly better.  I have a T440s myself and actually replaced the original clickpad with the one from the newer model because the original was so terrible.You also need to think about whether you need a dedicated Quadro GPU or not.  This would be the main difference between the T and W series.  For heavy graphics work, the W series is the better option whereas the T series is designed for more business-oriented workloads.You then really have the slightly tricky decision for the CPU.  Currently Intel have not released full power Broadwell (5th gen) CPUs.  This means that the T550 and W550s have the 5th generation, low voltage CPUs.  While these are still good chips and will certainly improve battery life, they will be slightly less powerful than the full power counterparts and also don't have quad core options (they are all dual core with hyperthreading).  If you want a full power/quad core chip, you would need to then go for the W541, however this does mean you are getting a slightly older Haswell chip.  Whether this bothers you is really up to you.Whatever you do, also ensure that you get an IPS screen - The ThinkPad IPS screens are fantastic, the TN...

I recieved my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11e a couple of days ago and it came with a lot of bloatware, or at least what I thought was. I started uninstalling a lot and everything seemed to work fine. I restarted it, but when it came back, I noticed the touch screen would not work. I went into the Device Manager and realized that one of my I2C drivers had the triangle with the exclamation was on one of them. After trial and error, I realized that disabling and re-enabling the driver would allow my touch screen to work. After a restart, however, I was back to square one. My wife bought her the same Lenovo Yoga and I have been compairing the two. I just noticed that I am missing the I2C controllers in the System Devices in the Device Manager as well. I have tried booting from an installation from hers and even copying the drivers and System32 folder to no avail. If anybody has any solutions, please help. I have tried everything I knew and everything I could find. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11e missing I2C driver. Drivers from lenovo website not working.

Hello and welcome,
 
What happens when you install the i2c driver for your machine?  Before doing so please verify the machine type (20D9, 20DA) as there's another machine type option available.  Downloads found by using SUPPORT above and entering Yoga 11e.

Answer:PLEASE LENOVO PLS PLS PLS!!! UPDATE YOUR GRAPHICS DRIVERS FOR LENOVO THINKPAD S1 YOGA

I don't see why you want to update your graphics drivers. If it works, it works. If there aren't any bugs there is nothing to worry about. And as far as gaming performance goes, it is still going to be slow and barely going to make a difference.If the generic drivers from Intel, Nvidia or AMD work use those. But make sure that brightness keys etc work correctly.

Hi, I've recently just purchased the lenovo Y50. I noticed that the ventalation areas on the bottom of the laptop are accumulating a lot of dust. I was wondering how to clean this? Should I take off the bottom cover and try to blow the dust out or take some kind of wet sponge and swipe across the exterior of the vent? Thanks!

Answer:Cleaning Dust off of Lenovo Y50

Welcome to the forum! I would try using a can of compressed air to blow out the fan and ventilation grills.  Use short bursts of air to blow out the passages as long burst may over rev the fan.  Also be sure to blow air in both the intake and exhaust grills to remove dust from both directions.  That always works best for me.  Canned compressed air is available at any office supply store or big box store.  I would avoid using a damp cloth or sponge on the grills until you have the insides blown out of all the dust bunnies.  Getting the inner accumulated dust wet may solidify it when dried if it isn't totally removed. If you have any removable covers on the bottom that have vent slits you can remove these for cleaning.  As for removing the entire laptop bottom that would take quite a bit of disassembling to accomplish that chore.

hi Te4ko,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Opening the computer will not void your warranty, same as replacing/upgrading some parts.
    but, damages on parts or cosmetics during the replacement won't be covered.
 
Just be extra careful on opening the system and here check this manual of your system disassembly.

First off thanks for letting me join.  Just wanted to get some opinions from some of the more experienced Lenovo owners and users.  I want to pick up the T420 as my first Lenovo Thinkpad.  What is the overall verdict on this laptop (Good build quality, reliability issues, or anything else I should be aware of)?  I use to own a IBM Thinkpad and just missed the overall layout of the Thinkpad specific look and functionality.  To date, the IBM Thinkpad has been my favorite Windows based laptop.  Any and all opinions would be deeply appreciated. May God bless! Ed

Answer:New to forum and opinions on the Lenovo T420 being my first Lenovo Thinkpad?

I've only had my T420 for a couple of weeks but so far I really like it.  I reminds me of a mini version of the W520.  My T420 has the i7 processor, NVIDIA Optimus and most of the options.  I upgraded the RAM to 16GB and currently have the Intel Series 510 120GB SSD in the primary bay.  I am waiting for a Samsung Series 830 SSD to arrive. No complaints so far.  It runs nice, quiet and cool. If I were going to improve anthing on the machine, it would be the screen.  The 1600x900 AUO screen on mine is fair but I can live with it.  I bought this machine new on eBay for an excellent price. I am using the 6 cell battery right now and get a little over four hours of battery life. The 9 cell is quite a bit better but I like the flush lighter 6 cell. Love the keyboard.  The trackpad is fair but I haven't tweaked the Ultranav settings yet.  Been using a mouse mose of the time. I have several ThinkPads and I think the T420 is an excellent balance of power and features.  I am comparing it to my X301, T410s, T61p and W510.  I added a 34mm USB 3.0 ExpressCard (still testing). After my experience with the W520 random shutdowns, I won't be totally comfortable with this machine for a couple of months but it's looking really good so far.  I am optimistic.

Hello, I have a Lenovo T400s that was full of dust, so because of high temperature and slow performance, I decided to clean the cooler all by myself. After carefully removing every single part, I managed to reach the cooler and clean it. I've successfully reattached every single piece of hardware, with temperature now reaching a maximum of 70 degrees Celsius in high-performance mode. Still, there are a bunch of issues that I'm yet to repair: 1. The overall performance of the laptop is slower than before, with the browser and all the other apps clearly slowed down by something, even after starting the laptop. 2. Sometimes, whenever I plug in the power cord, the laptop freezes all of a sudden. It happened to me several times either when the OS is loading or when I was working on the laptop. After I cleaned the laptop, I got an error saying "Plugged in, not recharging," but I've fixed it by removing and reconnecting the battery. 3. The Bluetooth adapter doesn't seem to work anymore. Whenever I try to connect a Bluetooth mouse, the laptop freezes. Any idea on the source of these problems and how could I fix them? Thanks in advance. I'm running Winodws 8 and the standard hardware configuration of the laptop, with no upgrades.

Hi all.
This morning I removed the cover from my PC. a Philips Freevents LS1600, to blow out some dust & now it will not start. It is receiving power (the displays panel shows the clock & the symbol that suggests the PC is in sleep mode) and when I press the start button it tries to power up but very quickly dies (after about only a second) . Although the display panel contiues to show the clock & sleep symbol it now will not respond at all to the start button unless I unplug it from the mains, leave for a few seconds then plug it back in. Then the same thing happens all over again when I try to start it. Logically it would seem that I have probably disturbed someting inside, although I did not directly touch any components. Anyone got any suggestions or is this one for a professional technician to look at?

Hi whitecheese131, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Check if you have active warranty for your tech support in warranty service. 
Else review your system manual that can be downloaded from the support site for your model and check if there is also a module available from service training. With an air compressed can, you can blow dust particles safely from the sytemboard and filters.
 
Highlighted links can help as reference guide on opening the chassis and if you lack tools then a service center nearest you may be a better option.

On the shop's website it is stated that opening my laptop will result in warranty being voided. On the other hand, taking my laptop for dust cleaning to a certified service can last for even two weeks. I remember taking my previous PC for CPU cooler change and it was there for 2 weeks.What I wanted to do was clean the cooler of the CPU and see if the WiFi antenna was maybe unplugged because I was having almost no signal. I did open it *carefully* without even scratching a screw, cleaned the cooler, noticed that the main wire of the WiFi card was unplugged, while the auxiliary one was plugged correctly, plugged it back and closed the laptop, again, *carefully*. Can any of this void my warranty?Also, I planned to swap the HDD with an SSD I've had for some time. Could that represent a problem because I am changing some parts.I am not a certified servicer but I can certainyl say that I'm experienced enough to even disassemble the whole laptop and put it back again (no, I haven't done this nor do I plan to) without leaving a mark so why would opening it void my warranty if I make no damage to it.I just want to know whether I still have my warranty. Thank you in advance.

Answer:Will opening my Lenovo Z50-75 and cleaning it void my warranty?

Hi MrVene , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
In general sense , cleaning or opening the chassis or upgrading would not void the warranty as long as there won't be any induce damage to the parts during and after such change. (additional reference discussion here and here ) 
 
 
For the same reasons why OEM have the hardware manual dissassembly guide made available for free download and Lenovo Service Training . This may also be different on regional basis so having technical support informed first is still the best way to proceed so that proper guidelines are checked and that there is documentation for both party to reference.

If you find that your fan is running more often or at higher speeds than it used to, or your system is running warmer than it used to, it could be a sign that the fan and heat sink could be clogged with dust or lint.  As air is drawn in from the bottom on these systems and then blow through the fins of heat sink before exiting on the left side of the system, just or lint may be drawn in more frequently if the system is frequently operated on a bed, blanket or other cloth surface, or in a dusty environment. If your system is out of warranty and might be running warmer than normal as described above, you might clean the fan and heat sink to lower system fan speeds and operating temperature. First, remove AC and battery and turn system over.  Locate the fan cover.  Remove the 2 screws and lift up the cover from the edge. Next, remove the 3 screws marked by the arrows to remove the fan - carefully locate and uplug the fan connector from the system board as you lift it out.  After removing the fan, it should look like this...  Using a can of compressed air, blow out the area, blow the dust out of the fan. Clean out the heat sink fins by blowing air through the outside vents so that the dust is blow back toward the the fan locations.  Make sure the fins are all free from lint, fibers and dust.  After all dust has been cleared out, carefully reinstall the fan and 3 mounting screws.  A magnetic screwdrive...

Fan IssueI've cleaned my laptop sometime this month after about two years of use. Popped it open, blew everything, popped it back. I saw a post before posting this about removing the battery before cleaning so i'm considering going back and doing that. I usually keep it running in high performance because I use it for gaming. Core/CPU usage is almost never above 10%, currently sitting at 2%-4%. Memory is usually high because I only have a 500GB SSD, currently at 58%. The other stats (disk, network, and GPU), sit at 0 (although GPU will boost to about 60% when gaming). Currently, I have it in balanced mode and set the maximum core usage to 40% and it's still going strong. Any suggestions?  Gaming IssueAlso on a side note, if anyone can assist me with a gaming issue I'm having. My computer has a 960 GTX, i74720GQ @ 2.6GHz, and 500 GB SSD (samsung evo--upgraded from 1TB HD) and I'm having issues with my FPS in-game. It locks at 30 or FPS across all games. I do have two GPU's (integrated and 960 GTX) and have always used the GTX as the primary source, uncapped in-game graphics, limited background interference (services, programs, etc.) and possibly other things I can't think of but cannot release the in-game FPS cap. Even when settings are at the lowest settings. In previous times, if I were to uncap, it'd reach above 60 easily consistently but now when it's uncapped, it never goes above 60. One might ask what changed? After upgrading from HDD to SSD, I had to reset my ... Read more

Think Pad Twist i7-3537U No matter how fast or how many times I press the enter key when starting, I can not access the start-up menu. Immediately after the white "ThinkPad - To interrupt normal start press Enter" letters appear for just a fraction of a second on the bottom left corner, there comes the windows blue logo, and windows starts. - The enter key is working fine (I can use it with any application)- I am completely shutting down the laptop, not sleeping or hibernating.- I have tried a "safe mode" start from msconfig -> same results.

Answer:ThinkPad Twist - I can not start the bios or the start-up menu pressing Enter

Ok, I've been able to access the BIOS with the following procedure:http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-access-the-bios-on-a-windows-8-computer/ Winkey+C > PC Settings > General > Advanced Startrup > Restart Now > > > UEFI Settings But this is only a temporary solution. What will happen if I can not start Windows and I need to access the Startup for recovery purposes?, or to boot from a USB device?  I would like to have a solution to normally access the Startup Options pressing the Enter key. Thank You

Hello,

I've cleaned my CPU box - carefully, using a dry paint brush & compressed air. I was careful to hold the can vertically, to prevent any condensate from forming on the parts. When I connected everything back again, the computer just wouldn't start. There would be absolutely no response, no fans spinning or anything. I had the CMOS configured to enable me to turn the computer on if I pressed any key on the keyboard. Needless to say, that didn't work either.

I've tried taking out my power supply & replacing it with a good, working one. With the same result - computer won't start.

My question is: does it mean my motherboard is dead? Is there a way to ascertain that, to rule out any other problems (maybe a wire got disconnected, or something, though I've checked that already).

Thanks,
Daniel.

I have just taken apart my VAIO E Series and cleaned the fan, but then after I put the laptop together, it won't start. The light at the start button turned on, and then after 2-3 seconds turnes off, and then turned on again. It kept doing such with the battery, or without the battery(plugged in charger). How could I solve this problem? Did I permanently damaged my laptop. Please help me, it is a crucial time in my life, and without my laptop I cannot continue working.

My PC is a Dell Dimension 9150 two years old, running XP Media Centre 2002 u/g to 2005 and SP3 v 3311. I have a BT Vision Home Hub wireless network which shows a 7616kB connection speed

My pc takes exactly 4mins from when the desktop appears until I can open anything, this includes the pc finding the net.This is since I installed SP3.
When desktop has loaded the Netgear logon icon appears green in the Task Bar. After 4mins Spysweeper and Bitdefender icons load in Task Bar annd Netgear goes red. After 1 min Netgear goes green and the wireless network connection icon appears and connects.

I have reinstalled my Netgear programme and updated my wireless card driver. My signal is v good at 100% and speed is 54Mbps but will drop to 1Mbps and low signal.

I had trouble with wininstaller but have managed to update it and can install software.

This all seems to have happened since I ran Ashampoo WinOptimiser, Regmechanic and CCleaner. I have recently installed an HPC5280 all in one printer which is shared by the oonly other pc on my home network.


Having run all the Cleaning tools my start up time has not been improved at all. Only when Spybot completely deleted Winclear, on its second run at start up, did the pc start as I would hope; but this was a one off!

Attached are log files from SAS and combofix. there is no log from MBAM as no malware was found. The other logs follow.
 

Answer:I've run Cleaning Procedures but still have slow Start Up?

Here are the other logs. Only from MG.

I have just updated my Spysweeper programme and in its first sweep it has quarantined EICAR-AV-Test as a high rated virus.

hope someone can help me.

Thanks for all the guidance with the cleaning programmes a great help and easy to follow.

Hello. I cleaned by T400s keyboard today after some juice reached the keys and the laptop doesn't seem to start anymore. I removed the battery and the power cord, tried the 10 times power button press trick, still no result. Does resetting the CMOS resolve the problem? At the first glance, it seems the laptop receives power because the fingerprint reader LED is turned on, but it turns off as soon as I disconnect the charger. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I was referred here by a friend who had problems with a similar virus a few months ago.

I believe I have the 'security center virus' on my vista home edition 32-bit latop. I have downloaded the programs from malware removal guide that I need to run, however can't install any of them, the error message 'windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. I can't even run ccleaner which was already installed.

Luckily I'm using a friends laptop to get on this site.

I'd really appreciate any help you could offer.

Answer:Unable to start the cleaning process

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Please download and run the below tool named Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) which may help allow other programs to run.
There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.

Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Administrator

You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

Rkill.exe

Once you've gotten one of them to run then try to immediately run the following.


Download and save the below to your PC (save it anywhere you can find it. The Desktop is fine). Then double click on it to run it.

AVPFind.bat

It should take a couple minutes to run. You will see a black command prompt window while it is running and it should close when it is finished.

Also it doesnt boot in safe mode.Posting this from my phone.Thanks in advance.

Answer:windows wont start after cleaning cpu fan

QuoteHello today i cleaned my stock cpu fan with tap water dried it up and put it back in. I am guessing that some residual water that may have been under the cap of the fan body got whipped out when it spun up and this water may have made contact with sensitive electronics on the main board.Introducing water of all things to this was not a very good idea.      Its best to use canned air or a vacuum cleaner. Although canned air is safer since a vacuum cleaner with dry air can build up a static charge and arc to components when sucking up dust. Both methods vacuum or air pressure you have to be careful your not removing any jumpers from motherboard etc.If your lucky you can give the computer a few days to air dry and see if it then behaves. This drying process can be accelerated with a hair dryer, but you do not want to overheat components with a hair dryer either.  You may have damaged your system permanently by this act of using water to clean the CPU fan. If your lucky you will only have to replace the heatsink/fan and be back up and running. There is a small circuit board out of view at the core of this CPU fan that sends magnetic pulses to a magnet that is shaped like a ring under the center cap. If there was still a small drop of water in there under IC legs when powered it could have sent 5 volts to the 3rd wire the tach, and I am unsure as to if sending 5 volts directly to this tach leg if it will destroy a motherboard or not as for I have...

Running XP Home SP3
Before I start the cleaning process I want to know if there is something specific that any of you are aware of for this problem.
The computer and all peripherals including two external HD (auto software on the external HD has been disabled and the services disabled) are shut down normally in the evening. In the morning, the computer and HD are on by themselves! I have no auto shutdown or start-up apps installed. The hard disc is quite as a church mouse with no extraneous hard disc activity that might indicate spyware/malware. Is there something specific that I could/should look for instead of a full cleaning?

My primary protection is AntiVir Personal with Threatfire. Each Sunday, I will run two of the following at random: SuperAntiVirus or MalwareBytes, then either Spybot, Lavasoft Adaware, or aSquared. My system is usually always clean.

This started only this week but forget exactly the day. There was a Microsoft Update I believe on Wednesday.
 

Answer:Question before I start the cleaning process

I'm not to clear on what you are asking us. If you are trying to say your PC is turning on by itself then you most likely in the wrong forum. This would probably mean you have configured your computers to wakeup on some kind of network access.

If you want to be sure your PC is clean then stop delaying and just run the cleaning procedure; otherwise, post in the Networking Forum.

Hello, let me begin with how satisfied i've been with my Y570 since i bought it 2 years ago, it has met every expectation i had for it. But 1 month ago, my laptop fan stopped being able to use the Efficient Thermal Dissipation from Thermal Management. Actually, the only option that seems to work is Dust Cleaning since it speeds up my fan and stops it until it's over. I already fully cleaned the fan, and i don't know what else to do. Thank you very much beforehand

Answer:Lenovo Y570 Thermal Management - Only Dust Cleaning Works

while the computer is turned off, remove the AC and battery.then Hold the power button for 15 seconds. install the battery and plug AC. Does it bring back the fan mode funtionality?

Hey Guys, Just finished cleaning out my computer like a do every month and after today i put everything together and it wont start, I have absolutely no cash and need to fix this even if i have to use duct tape and bubblegum!

The only thing i know that doesnt have any problems is my video card because i went to the computer store i bought it at and they tested it and it works flawlessly.

When the computer boots up the fans and led lights turn on but nothing at all displays on the screen, every 1 to 2 seconds the fans die down for a sec then go back up to their previous speed. Also out of the 5 indicator lights on the 4870x2 the middle light blinks about every second or two as well.

All i did is clean it out very gently and i dont know what on earth the problem could be.

I Have some videos here that might help.

Answer:Finished Cleaning out computer, WONT START NOW!!!

Check the basics first:

Make sure you plugged everything back in (some Motherboards have 2 power connectors, etc)

Make sure the CPU heat sink is firmly secured (no wobble, etc)

If it shuts it'self off it's either an Overheat issue, or a "wrong cord in wrong spot" connection - and the computer is preventing itself from doing damage.

Make sure all connections are clean, and firm. IF anything is bent - do not use it.

If you removed your RAM, video card, harddrive or anything else - make very sure you put it firmly back into place (and in the correct position)

If you have onboard video - try pulling out your video card and using onboard instead - just to see if it boots, if it boots - it IS a problem with the video card, although this doesn't mean it's "ruined" just possibly not powered/plugged in properly, or recieving enough juice from the motherboard+connectors. Also make sure the monitor is plugged in securely.

Hey!

I have an Satellite P20 that is acting strange. I've been cleaned the keyboard (removed it, took it apart and cleaned all the keys) but when i boot it up now (I have connected the keyboard) It goes *beep beep* *beep beep beep beep* on me (sounds like one of those things at the hospital). If I wait for some time it eventually boots up XP but then some keys (5%) are not responding (S and arrow down to name some).

I've tried to boot up with the keyboard disconnected and that works like a charm.

So is it the keyboard thats faulty? ( I rather not buy a new one just to get the same problem) or is it keyboard connector or me doing it wrong (I have disconnect and connected the keyboard many times)

I'm very thankful for any help or tips that I can get.

Best Regards

Answer:Satellite P20 - beeps at start up after keyboard cleaning

This is strange but maybe the keyboard is faulty as you said.
Or you don?t have the keyboard connected to mainboad correctly. Check this again.

Maybe one key is always pushed and so get the beeps. Check this.

I opened my case for its monthly cleaning and saw dust buildup on under the GPU fans. I proceeded to remove the graphics card. It gave me some resistance even after flipping the little switch. It released after a little "crack" sound. It wasn't big. It was enough for me to look around at the motherboard, but I didn't see anything and the motherboard was still solidly in place. I didn't think much of it after that. I got my compressed air and started blowing out the dust from both the computer and the GPU. I hold the can upright and spray stuff pretty directly. At one point I noticed I could actually see the stream from the can...it didn't look quite right. Again, I wasn't obviously spraying fluid and at this point I really don't think I was, but it's in my head.

Hi!

I've been browsing some of the postings here to learn about how to start trying to rid my computer of all of the parasitic processes we've picked up. I gather that the first step is to install HijackThis and to post the log here, and that a later step is to install Spywareblaster and spywareguard, and maybe some other programs. Here, then, is a description of my situation followed by my HijackThis log, and I'd be very grateful if you can help me.

I am running WindowsXP on a home computer. My kids have downloaded and installed various programs from the internet in the past, and I am by no means sure that they have always been careful. Lately, the following symptoms have been turning up:

1) Tremendous amounts of pop-up advertisements;
2) An error message any time I try to log off, saying that RUNDLL is not responding, and asking me whether I want to end the process;
3) An error message any time I log on, saying that there was an error loading msiefr40.dll, that access is denied;
4) Our CD-RW drive has stopped working entirely--It doesn't recognize disks and ejects them.

I suspect that this last error might be a hardware issue, but I mention it anyway, because you never know . . .

What are my next steps, please? Thanks very much.

Hi, Recently I decided to clean out my Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop, given that it just so dusty it was constantly overheating. I spent an ardious 3 hours to remove all of the factory sealed screws by hand, then I dusted out the CPU fan with an air spray can, and finally applied new thermal paste. After assembling it back together, I come to find that it will no longer turn on! When I try to charge it, the lights on the front pulse for a second, then cut off, then pulse etc. If I had to guess I would say this is a CPU or PSU problem, and perhaps I failed to assemble the CPU back together properly? I was also grounded the whole time. I'm almost certain everything is back in place, including the wires. Any help would be appreciated. EDIT: There is also a clicking noise coming from the PSU.

Answer:Laptop won't start after cleaning and applying new thermal paste

Did you try to run it without the battery or only on battery? Is the clicking noise coming from the external PSU?

I purchased a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 a few months ago and I voluntarily purchased the three-year extended warranty because I had heard such great things about Lenovo's repair services and warranty services.  Many people had told me that the warranty services were top-notch and frustration free.  Not true so far in my experience.  First, the screen crack started out as a hairline crack.  I did not drop the laptop or in any way cause the problem.  It just appeared one day and then got worse.  I spoke with Lenovo and they sent me a box to send it to them for the repair, but then they sent it back to me unfixed.  They did not even attempt to fix the crack and told me that they would require my credit card number to repair the screen and that it would cost no less than $900.  This is nearly twice the price of the laptop itself as purchased new.  The Lenovo technician apparently thought that I had caused the crack in the screen and nothing I said could change the technician's false belief that the problem had actually occurred through no fault of my own and might actually be a manufacturer's problem.  I am not happy with Lenovo's handling of this matter so far and wanted to see if others had had similar problems.  Another problem is that if Lenovo does not fix the laptop, then I have a 2 and half year remaining warranty that I paid for that will now be for a laptop that does not even work.  I am now stuc...

Hi Murali,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the computer is not booting to windows normally. I suggest you to reset the BIOS to its defaults and let me know if the issue persists.
 
Hope to hear back soon
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

How do I stop the creation of the "Lenovo" folder being created in my start menu every time I restart my system? I have my start menu orginized how I want it, its not the chaos must users have. I delete the folder every time, and it just comes back. Not a major issue but sure is annoying! Any suggestions or help will be appreacated. 

Answer:Lenovo Y580 Creates "Lenovo" folder in start menu after every reboot.

A Lenovo folder on your start menu? Where exactly on the start menu  is it, and have you tried opening it? ?t may be an entry in the registry? Have you scanned your system recently? Please go here  http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/ and see if a scan will find malware. Checkmark all appropriate boxes and disable your antivirus just before you start the scan Please remember to turn it on again afterwards. You can also do a shot(quick) scan by going to Start>type mrt.exe into the RUN box,enter then choose Quick scan. Let us know the results,if it is malware the malware forum would be the place to go to, if not malware,then we can take it from there.

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu. The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate. Here's a picture of the problem:I did already try:Restarting the PC.Doing scannow, DISM, and scannow again.Fixing Registry errors with CCleaner.Updating BIOS and drivers. What can I do to fix the problem?
