Preferred Solution: g550 pendrive issue

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Today I plugged in my flash drive, but when I tried to open it, it said "Please insert a disk into (H"

I just wanted to reinstall my Windows 10 from flash, because it became very slow, and I can format my SSD from startup when installing, and that is better way.

Model: TOSHIBA TransMemory USB Device

Answer:I have an issue with my pendrive.

I do believe it has died. If the controller in the USB key can't see the memory chips (or they don't work any more) Windows reports "insert disk".

You'll have to buy a new one I'm afraid.

I am having problems with my G550's DVD/CD drive... It will not recognize any cd's or dvd's I put in it.  I have tried updating the driver, but I have the most recent, and I have also tried disabling and reenabling the drive... Nothing seems to help.  Is there anything else I can do, or am I going to have to replace the drive?  Any suggestions?

This may be in the wrong forum, but it was the only one I saw with a G series.
My concern is this:
I recently bought a G550 from your website with Windows 7. Overall, I am very pleased with the computer and its capabilities. However, when using it, after some time, my computer begins to become gradually slower until eventually I cannot even click on desktop icons or links in a program or anything. For instance, earlier today, after barely any computer and only sitting awake for an hour or so, my computer wouldn't process anything at all upon waking it up and actually went black when I attempted to open the task manager. Is this normal for a Lenovo brand computer or could it possibly be my processor? Is there anything I could do to overcome this problem?
Any help or advice you had would be greatly appreciated.

HOWEVER. its now telling me (on both ubuntu and windows 7) that the network switch is set to off, which it isnt! i flipped the switch a couple times, i checked to see if the switch was still connected to the board itself, ive toggled the fn+f5 key a couple times, and ive even gone into the bios to see if it was set to off from there, and it wasnt. so what am i doing wrong!? this is super confusing, and id really like to get it working again. ideas anyone? thanks!

I'm not sure exactly what happened, but I must have accidently hit a wrong key.  It seems that there is something wrong with my SHIFT KEYS and with the CTRL KEY on the left side of my keyboard.  I have a feeling I hit a wrong combonation of keys because the problems happened during a time when I was typing a post on another discussion board.  I used Chrome, Firefox, Outlook, and Word to make sure it wasn't browser related.  It wasn't.  From what I can tell when I hit my Right hand CTRL KEY it switches tabs within my browser.  When I hit the Right side SHIFT KEY it highlights a bunch of the last words that were typed and if you hit it a 2nd time it deletes those words and highlights another bunch of words before the previous deleted words.  When I hit the left side SHIFT KEY by itself nothing happens, but when I hit the right handed SHIFT KEY along with another letter then it brings up stuff in my browser instead of just CAPITALIZING the letter like it usually does.  For example when I hit SHIFT F a FIND Box opens up in the upper left hand corner of my google chrome browser.  I know your thinking don't you mean when you hit CTRL F that the find box came up NO I  do mean when I hit SHIFT F.  It does other things when I hit the SHIFT KEY with other keys depending on what key I hit at the same time I hit SHIFT. Does anyone know what the problem is. Sorry can't put a question mark or any of the symbols above the numbers. ... Read more

I had used the laptop only for 10 mins approx this morning and I am not sure if the problem still exists. Please advise me if this is due to some power saving setting or could be a hardware issue?

My 3ys old Lenovo G550 has stopped accepting power from the power jack. It's been fluffy for a while and has needed massaging to work, but now it's game over. It's doesn't with/without the battery. Been surfing around and partly concluded that it's a weak point in this design. Was on the Lenovo support today, and it will be too expensive to let them work the problem. Also learned that the power jack comes as a pigtail that can be purchased, but the laptop needs a total tear-apart to exchange the cable. Have not been able to find instructions/videos showing the needed tricks. Anyone in here that can help, or has experience with the same issue?

Answer:Lenovo G550 power issue

Sorry to hear this as I own a G550. My first thought after receiving and plugging power cord into it first time " what a cheesy weak and wimpy feel it had" - I've been waiting for it to crater ever since. Frankly surprised it has lasted this long. However, when it does, I'll not hesitate to tear that sucker apart to attempt a fix.

Good luck on getting it working. If you do find a maintenance manual, please do share.

Hi So I recentely dropped my iPad on my G550 and ever since that happened the screen hasn't been working. Everything goes dark and it just slightly lights up a bit (you still can't see anything). The rest of the laptop is still working fine, when I dropped it a video was playing and I could still hear everything perfectly etc.  What I find weird though is that the iPad didn't even hit the screen. It fell on the mousepad area...

Answer:Weird G550 screen issue

hi Boram,
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
I've seen some scenarios that if something hard fell on the keyboard, you might not see any damage on the outside but it could cause a big impact inside (it cam dislocate cables / damage the chips).
Here's what you can try:
1. Press Fn + Up Arrow to increase the brightness
2.. Check if there's a  background image on the screen if you point a flashlight into it -- if you do, try connecting an external monitor. If: there's a display, the LCD inverter chip might be defective.
3/. Re-seat the RAM, You can ccess the RAM slot by opening the bottom comparment cover. Related video here
If this doesn't workv and/or If you see the screen flickers ON/OFF, the LCD cable or the inverter chip might be defective and you will need to send the unit for service. Support phone list here.
Hope this helps.

Answer:Lenovo G550 secondary display issue

First of all, what is your graphics, onboard INTEL or offboard NVIDIA? If onboard, try visiting INTEL and downloading the driver from there, it might solve your problem.  What is the resolution that you're choosing for display, is it the native 1600x900 or another? It might not be working because you chose to view the same image on you laptop as on the TV, making it impossible for the notebook to display higher resolution than 1366x768. Try using the extended mode, or turning off the notebook display, then changing the resolution again.

 I recently purchased a G550 model laptop -- This laptop has everything I would want in this price range and was pleased to have found it on sale and after a test drive left Fry's Electronics with a smile. When I was walking out, I saw a man bringing back in the same model for a return - I tried my best to ignore that and think positive.The 2nd day I used it I began to see intermittent white horizontal flicker lines -- sometimes across the majority of screen, always from right to left and then in the very top portion of the screen. It then evolved into a line of white small dashes in the middle of the very top of the screen. Searching the internet, I found many many posts and videos with exactly the same problem or very similar on this same model and others from Lenovo.I took the time to capture the line flickers with my video camera and decided to return it as it was only used briefly in the 5 days I had it in use. Since the lines were intermittent/random in their appearance times - I had a hard time verifying the defect - luckily the videos and the store manager helped me and offered me a new G550 and extended the return time as if I had bought it on return date (as he should). The man at the return desk actually said "You know you are buying one of our cheaper laptops in the whole store - so what do you expect?" - This was not what I or anybody should hear.

Hello,  I have a G550 for work and I have one issue with it that i cannot fix to do with the audio drivers. Windows 7 says that "No Audio Output Devised Is Installed" so I have searched the Lenovo support site for drivers, but non of them seem to work, I have also tried re-installing the NVIDIA drivers as these come with HD audio support in case there was a problem with this, but this still has not worked. I searched online for drivers and eventually gave up and ordered a USB Soundcard, this this will on install either, so I am guessing there is a base driver missing for my system as the camera also does not work. I have included a screen shot but any idea what drivers i am missing, I have downloaded all the divers i could find for the G550 from Lenovo which no joy so I could do with a hand with this one.  Thanks In Advance!

Dear Friends
This issue may be repeated, and may occur to any of us
I have a USB flash drive, of 8GB
it worked fine for months,
but unfortunately, it is not working any more!
If inserted, the computer recognizes it as a flash drive, and places it in the "Safely Remove Hardware",
but if we tried to open it, it says "Insert disk in drive..."
I saw it's properties it says: Rmovable disk>>> Size 0MB !!!
where the media gone?
I tried to format it says "no disk in drive..."
I tried to fix using HP recovery, and other utilities, but it insists on, "No disk in drive"

Is there is something to do?

This can happen when the drive is not removed properly.
Plug in the drive,then go to "my computer".

HI,I was reading an article the other day about a chap who had spybot and other spyware software on his usb pendrive,and not on his pc i was wondering if it wasn't installed on any pc how was he running the spybot etc, on any machine to check for errors spyware without it being installed on the pc it was just on his pendrive.Puzzles me or is it me? help.Thanks daiol.


I think he probably had the installer executables on the pen drive. Then he could go to any PC with a USB port and install the program without having to download (especially if the internet connection wasn't working).I've done a similar thing with a collection of anti-malware and diagnostic programs burned to a CD.

I have a P4 computer but its RAM is just 256 MB. If anyone knows any method to use a pendrive as a RAM, please tell it to me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Using Pendrive as a RAM on XP

This is not recommended, not practical, and I don't think it's possible. USB Storage Devices store memory as Flash memory, which is different than the type of memory used in your RAM. They are accessed differently and have different characteristics.The main difference is that the Flash Drive retains its memory when the power is turned off, whereas the RAM is completely erased when you turn off the power.Also, if you manage to get the USB Drive working as RAM, it would be like driving a car without circular wheels. It is just too slow to be used as RAM.Can you not purchase any more RAM? It doesn't come too expensive.

i want to play movies on my LG lcd TV through Pen Drive.

plz guide me or give me software for that

thanking u

Answer:use pendrive on lcd


Have you checked your tv manufacturer's website to see if your tv can play movies from just a usb flash drive as most lcd tv's don't do that if this is what you mean. The usb slot on a TV is there mainly for updates for itself, although having said that there is a few that will let you play a slideshow of pictures from it.

Have a look online at LG's website typing in your tv's make model/serial number, it will definitely tell you.

i can't format or copy any data into my pendrive
It shows that Pendrive is write protected..!!
please do help...

Answer:pendrive not able to format...!!

Worst case: Your pen drive is dead. A pen drive that has gone through thousands of Read/ Write cycles can die a natural death when its flash controller decides that it had had its full run and it is no longer safe to write any data on it.(simple non-technical explanation. )

Since you have not given any details about the pen drive in question like the model/make/capacity, for how long you have been using it, whether it is still under warranty, whether other pen drives works normally on your computer,whether you had tried this pen drive on another computer and with what results, and if it shows in the Windows Disk Management how does it appear (is it RAW) etc., etc., it is not possible to give any specific suggestion to deal with that problem.

So here you go on a round-trip.

Answer:pendrive not responding

If you've had it for a while it may have reached the end of it's life. There is a limit to how many times you can write to it, and a limit to how long it will retain the data that's on it.I have found the original low capacity ones to be far more reliable, I'm still using a 1GB one after 5 years daily use, whereas the 8GB one I bought didn't last more than a year. So I no longer buy them. I use external hard drives instead. They cost more initially but are more reliable and last longer so you actually save money over the longer term.

Is it possible to install XP onto a USB pendrive and boot it from there? If it is possible, how to do it?

Also, does it have any drawbacks, disadvantages? I think I read somewhere that flash drives have a maximum lifetime, which is measured in write operations performed on them. If the number of write operations exceed this number, the flash drive will eventually get unreliable.
And, given that Windows is using the pagefile almost constantly, it will ruin a flash drive in a few hours. Can any expert confirm this?



PS: A little background for those interested.
I want this because I want to separate my internet banking operations from all the rest I do with my computer. So I need a second system, which is securely away when I work or surf or play, and which, therefore, is inaccessible for any possible attacks originating from viruses or hackers. (So a 2nd partition won't do, because it's part of the system all the time.) I don't like the idea of always changing hard drives, whenever I want to do banking, so I need an external source for booting the OS. USB pendrives came to mind.

Question: Bootable pendrive

I know its been covered before however using a pendrive for a bootable drive are they faster than say a standard HDD due to the solid state memory?

Say for example i had a 4Gb pendrive and installed all the O/S and drivers onto the drive, would it boot faster than my 7200 160Gb HDD?

Or alternatively used the files and setting transfer wizard to make the drive bootable?

Surely the onboard memory of the drive has faster access speeds in a USB2 slot? Or does it have to be a USB1.1 because the drivers for the USB2 wont load at first boot?

Just being nosey really!

Answer:Bootable pendrive

Nope, a USB stick isn't any faster - some new SSDs (actual hard drives) are around the same speed as a good HDD.

A bootable USB stick will be quite slow and won't last as long as it has a limit on the amount of writes. They are good for playing with Linux though

Sir, I have 4gb kingston pendrive. I want to partition it into three parts(three drives)
Is it possible if yes plz tell me how

Answer:Partition of pendrive

1) Windows will not let you create or see multiple partitions on removable media. But you can do it with linux. See this page.

[SOLVED] Making multiple partitions on USB memory stick

2) Another approach is to try and turn your USB drive into a fixed disk by ‘flipping’ the removable bit in the firmware. This is the digital flag that tells Windows whether the drive is ‘fixed’ or ‘removable’. You can do this using the Lexar BootIt utility.


Lexar tool makes creating bootable USB flash drives easy

Create separate partitions on your Corsair USB flash drive « Corsair? Blog

Let me add that the Lexar utility may or may not work on your particular drive, so use at your own risk.

3) The safest option is to buy a few cheap, low capacity drives and use them for individual purposes.

I had purchased a Transcend Jet Flash 700 USB 3.0 16 GB Pendrive from Flipkart in mid September 2011. The pendrive is not even a year old.

Yesterday I inserted my pendrive in a friend's laptop to transfer files of around 1.5GB. The pendrive had more than 10GB free space. 70-80% of the transfer was done but then his laptop's battery drained off and the laptop obviously got shut down. Since then, whenever I insert my pendrive in any device the blue light on it blinks for around 10 seconds and then the light turns off too. The pendrive is not detected.

I have tried reading the pendrive on my friend's laptop, on my laptop and my tablet too. On each device, the pendrive's light blinks for about 10 seconds but nothing happens.

Please help, is there any way by which I can fix it?

Answer:Pendrive not being detected - Please help
