Preferred Solution: my life tile doesn't life again

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.)

Battery saver live tile anyone? I NEED a real time battery live tile! Back in the days of 8.1 ONLY the official Battery saver tile could do that...

Answer:Real Time Battery Life Tile

Or just show battery percentage beside that battery icon at the top there because you can't really estimate the power left by just looking at that battery icon

Having upgraded to Windows 8.1 X1 Carbon, I have noticed in the Lenovo Settings app that the power settings no longer include the extended battery life option (charge to 50% rather than 100%). I've read on this discussion board that longer battery life may be obtained, particularly when using the laptop while plugged into the A/C adapter by storing it at about half its power capacity. So, why is the longer battery life option missing from the Lenovo Settings app? Tim

Hi, I have had my T430 since August of 2012 at the start of college. I am currently running windows 8.1 pro and I recently just noticed my battery life issues and after installing lenovo settings I discovered that my battery's capacity is at 27% of the original capacity. The battery life is really bad, e.g. it says 15 minutes remaining at 25% on POWER SAVER mode.  I have google this and it said to "reset my battery" but unfortunately 8.1 Lenovo power manager doesn't have that feature.  I am just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for what to do?  Will I just have to get a new battery?

Answer:Lenovo T430 Battery Life 1+ hour on life saver

you would have to have a pre-Windows 8 OS to gain that crucial battery reset function. This is one reason why i dislike running Win 8 on ThinkPad.

To all owners of X1 Carbon 2017 (5th gen).I read all of those reviews where people are impressed by 10+ hours of battery life (15,5h advertised), but I can't really figure out how....!? First time I tested was a normal working day - Firefox (a lot of Flash it must be said), Outlook, Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat. Nothing really heavy, no peripherals except Bluetooth mouse. Brightness dimmed 1 level below the ideal. It lasted for about 4 hours! I windows's list of apps affecting battery life, Firefox was on 1st place with 32-35% Second attempt - same set of tasks, however less Firefox (no flash) - 7 hours. Now in the middle of a 3rd attempt (using Opera this time) - battery time remaining indication goes over 10h only when I completely stop using the laptop Not many apps running in the background either (Dropbox, Skype...) So my question - do you guys get more than 10h of battery life and HOW? Do you enable "Battery Stretch"? How actively do you use it and for what?

Hi,

I am wondering if end-of-life Vista is more dangerous than end-of-life XP. My reasoning is that Vista more closely resembles Win 10 than XP. So as MS was saying, attackers may reverse engineer patches meant for recent OS's into exploits that work on the end-of-life one. So it seems to me that Vista looks more dangerous than XP.

I installed ESET Smart Security 4 the other day. So far, very nice, quite happy, until I got on to Second Life this evening. I did set rules for Secondlife and slvoice (allow, both directions), but the system keeps freezing for around 5 seconds every few seconds to every minute. Stops the whole system, and when it isn't doing that it's crippling things like loading web pages. I found some options which I've tried, but they've not worked.

1. Under Advanced Setup in Real-Time File System Protection, I unchecked File Open, File Creation and Diskette Access.

2. Under Exclusions, I added the Second Life folder.

3. Under Personal Firewall, added secondlife.exe and slvoice.exe to the Excluded list under Application modification detection

If you're not familiar with Second Life, it's similar to an online game like WoW.

ESET is the only program I've installed this week, and I only get the long pauses when running Second Life (and it's the only online MMORG type thing I play).

Previously I was using ZoneAlarm + AVG. Yes, they've both been uninstalled (oh, and Malwarebytes anti-malware and AdAware and Spybot, Spybot was uninstalled and the rest are set to not run on start).

I'd appreciate any help or advice you can provide.

Answer:Battery life and charge-cycle. Background light life-cycle.

1)  See and follow the hints and tips of the Battery University2) Look at the Z60m part list or into the HMM in order to detect which parts/components are sitting there, this will give you some hint what parts might get heated up a lot near the thermal device.3) AFAIK logmon.exe is part of or belongs to ThinkVantage rescues & recovery. - If it runs as a service on your OS, then you can disable that service or maybe you can just change the scheduling times for that monitor service inside r & r. A look into the r & r manual, which can be found on Lenovo's website, might can tell you more about this.4) Look for yourself here, CCFL backlights for notebooks have usually a life time of 15.000 till 30.000 hours. Yes in practise the life-time will shorten, but this is common for all electronic devices over time.

Answer:Satellite A30 monitor doesn't show any signs of life

Hi Dudu (nice name like a vw beatle :-))

I would recommend connecting the external monitor to check if it?s only a wrong monitor setting, dead display or something wrong with the graphic card.
If you will see something on the external display so please check if you have switch to the external display device. But if all settings are right and you will nothing see on the notebook display and on the external display so I assume there must be something wrong with the graphic card.

I've had my computer for about 2 years... wait three, now. I have played Half-Life 2 all the way through on it with no problems. THEN, my old video card died, and I got a new one (specs below). I installed HL2 and it played fine for a while but then started crashing. I was very busy at school so I just stopped playing. Other games still played fine (Pirates! for example). However, I started to get a message at start-up that said "Windows has recovered from a serious error." Reporting this error led me to a page that pointed to an "uknown error" with my videocard. It recommended downloading the drivers. Also, I couldn't play Half-Life. The computer crashes with a lengthy blue-screen that I get about 1 second to read (not a standard BSoD).

What happens when I try to download the drivers, though, is that the ForceWare, one size fits all cards drivers, doesn't seem to fit my card. It tells me that there is no card that they have the drivers for on my system, which is funny because the manufacturer website links directly to them (www.bfgtech.com).

I have looked at the card itself, and everything seems to be ok: fan is running, lights blink, no flames, etc. I have reinstalled the drivers from the CD that came with the card, to no avail.

Does anyone know why I'm having this error? Why can I not download the driver? Are these two problems inextricably linked, or merely unfortunate coincidences? Will I ever be Gordon Freeman again?

I was working on the web using tabs, when suddenly it started to create dozens of tabs, going bezerk and out of control.

I crashed my PC on the power button and started again. All went OK until it should have shown my desktop. Instead a blue screen came up saying that a disc check was necessary. Never seen anything like this in all my life. I let it go into the disc check, it took a very long time checking mostly File 9 and inserting indexes for several minutes. It went on and on, I thought it would never stop.

I went to have a smoke for 10 minutes, came back and it had finished. Told me to wait and it logged onto Windows automatically. Everything then went as normal as if it was yesterday and up came my desktop and I opened my browser with no problems, just like nothing had ever happened.

As far as I can see now, I am back to normal after the unexpected freak show.

seem to figure out how to find my graphics card. Nor my sound card.

I am not a genius when it comes to computers, but I know more than the average person. My brother hooked me up with a computer and after having to reinstall the OS (XP) because of problems.. I now have an operating computer (with no sound). Along with no sound (because the computer does not seem to 'know' the sound card), the computer's refresh rate is horrific because it's using the default generic video driver.

I figure updated the drivers of the video card will fix this. However, I cannot find the graphics card in dxdiag (it shows nothing by the Name: as well as for the sound card). So after not being able to find anything using dxdiag, I tried using msinfo32 for the system information.. but it gives me information on everything but those two (all blank).

I am sure my computer will 'recognize' and fill in those blanks on dxdiag once the drivers are updated, but how do I know which drivers to get??

Any help is much appreciated.

Question: Life With Win 10

I keep all of my personal files on my 'main' PC, a Win 10 system, and access them over the LAN from the other machines. This means I can be sure there is only one version of each file. It's always worked fine but this morning I discovered that I could only open my files in Read Only mode. It took an hour or two to get to the bottom of it but it turns out that an update had changed the advanced network settings to require a password and that permissions for shared folders had been changed to allow read only access over the LAN. As I'm using a Homegroup the advanced network settings shouldn't even have come into the equation.

I had expected problems after moving the main system to 10 and there have, thankfully, been far fewer than I expected, but if you upgrade a system on your LAN to Win 10 don't be surprised if you run into a few issues accessing it.

Question: Life of it's own!

recently I bought my first laptop - an Acer Aspire 5310 on a special cashback offer hard to go past pre-loaded with Vista home.

But this thing has a life of it's own - it doesn't need my input, it has a seemingly full time job just looking after itself!! I turned off the Symantec trial and Windows Updates but it still takes forever to do anything.

If I want to open control panel, allow 30 seconds before I see a window. Same to open IE.

Its got all this Acer empowering stuff going on in the background maybe that needs to go.

Also if I run it on batteries to cycle these then plug in the power when it's low, it logs off ???

Text fields lose the mouse so are really hard to edit as the cursor can reappear almost anywhere... Arrggh.

Soooo slow and tedious to do anything. My old 800PC/10Mb is miles nicer than this 1.6 M/80Gb laptop.

Answer:Life of it's own!

OK how's about 1 question at a time.

In the normal running of a laptop the battery should be cycled from fully charged to low then recharged. So using it at home on battery from fully charged to low and then plugging it in at the first beep shouldn't log you off the internet and off the computer should it? Or is this Vista in all it's glory.

I've been happily using IE8 as my default browser on my Windows XP machine for many years now. I tried Firefox for a long while, but always had to go back to IE for some web sites, such as doing an internet check-in for a flight, because the site wouldn't respond to input via Firefox. Last year I ditched Firefox because it clashed with some of my other software after an update.
Now I'm beginning to find more problems with IE8: First there's the running script problem with this site; then on another of my favourite forums it keeps going back to the top of the page, instead of where I left off, when I go back from reading or contributing to a particular thread; and lastly, since about a week ago I can no longer get local weather and news on the BBC News web site -- the site prompts me to input my postcode but doesn't respond to my input.
So now I'm trying Google Chrome, and so far it's not causing the three issues mentioned. Should I also be moving on from XP to 7, or should I wait for the next Windows that works with PCs that don't have touch-screens?

Answer:Has IE8 come to the end of its useful life?

I've used Google Chrome for years. On the rare occasion I've had to use IE I've been frustrated by its slowness. It takes ages to load and sits around for ages waiting for pages to load in.
I still use XP on my desktop and Win 7 on my laptop, and I think I still prefer XP.

Hi,My Liteon CD-RW has died a death - refuses to read anything. :-(I thought the lifespan of these devices would be more than 2 years - that's how long I have had it, a lousy 2 years! Something must be wrong here surely...?Comments?Tj_El

Answer:What should the life of a CD-RW be?

The longevity of a rewriter is not as high as that of a CD/DVD-ROM type drive - that's why I always recommend that a rewriter is used for the sole task of burning.Manufacturers, even those that rebadge other makles' products, usually indicate the anticipated minimum life span of their drives.But there's no average - one drive might last 18 months, another two years and a third pack up in the first year.My first CD-RW drive was a TDK Velox 12x10x24 (actually a rebadged Plextor, one of the best makes around), which packed up within four months despite minimal use.TDK replaced it and that auffered exactly the same problem after a few weeks; the replacement for the second proved to be a TDK CyClone with 24x write speed as the Velox had been discontinued.Price of the orignal rewriter was £68 - the then new CyClone was £189 at dabs...:-) TDK didn't make any money (the two earlier ones went back to its Luxembourg HQ and back at TDK's expense), but the customer service was fantastic.Thankfully the CyClone is still doing sterling service.

Question: CD life

For years, I've been hearing that CDs you burn have a life of about 5 years before degrading. That's coming true. I burned a bunch of music CDs around 2001 and now I'm having to start throwing them away because they're becoming mostly static. I've also heard that the rate of degradation (and whether they degrade or not) depends on the kind of CD you're using. What are the specs for a really good blank CD?
 

Answer:CD life

A CD certainly has a life longer than 5 years. I have several older than that, and they work just fine. Music files don't degrade to static. If this is what you hear, I suspect another cause for the problem.

Are you only noticing problems with music CDs? Do you swap them around and handle them frequently? That will shorten their lifespan. Do you leave them in the car? Don't keep them in appropriate cases?

Hello guys.

So far so good, i installed all the drivers, programs, etc. Everything runs smooth and nice.
The cache folder for Mozilla Firefox ( my default browser ) is on the D partition, which is an hard drive, same story for the swap.
I disabled the System Restore, Defragmentation, Superfetch as well...
I checked with the program SSD Life Pro just to see some details. After less than 2 hours i have already
those values ( read / write ) as in the attached images.
The print screens are made at a very short period of time between each other.
I only surfed the web with Mozilla Firefox.

Question: Old PC new life?

I recently upgraded my old pc.

Ill be passing it down to my younger brother to replace his overheating xbox 360.
It will run the newer games at low quality settings. (eg grid, fear 2), My question is is there anything i can replace in this old dog to get a bit more of a kick out of her? I think the gpu is bottlenecked by the cpu after a hefty overclock with only1 fps increase.

I would prefer to replace as little as possible, but will spend a little more if the results would be worth it.

Any help or advice would be great !

Rough specs.

Intel Pentium 4 northwood. 2.66 ghz socket 478
1 gb of ram
Nvidia 512 mb 7600 gs AGP
Mainboard Model 0804h (0x134 - 0x22080)
80 gig hd
Dvd rw

Ive also included a cpuid file. For those more technicaly minded than myself

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Old PC new life?

AGP Transfer Rate 4xClick to expand...

No nothing to update
Possibly the Harddrive if it seems sluggish, ie big games on small harddrive don't mix real well

Still a good basic computer for a younger brother

I recently have started a relationship and things have gotten pretty serious. We are quite happy except for one thing. My girls ex consistently is having her social media pages either deleted or disabled. Every time she opens a new FB or Instagram account it stays up maybe a day or two and then disappears. We both know her ex is doing this as he likes to brag about it quite frequently. Anyway to prevent him from being such a little ***** and stop this? Please advise...

Answer:lcd life

I don't think that is true, or at least in the way that it sounds. Monitors are not supposed to "burn out" like a light bulb would.

Question: Is XP for life?

I'm a longtime and active user of windows 2000 - I use two pcs, one for games and films, and the other for more mundane stuff like internet, printing etc.
Yesterday, I was offered a secondhand copy of windows xp and given that xp is a little more flexible than W2K, I told the buyer that I might be interested but need to clear one or two things up-

1) is it true that xp HAS to be registered?

2) can I install the same os on my two computers?

3) only one of my computers is hooked up to the net as I don't want both computers filled to the hilt with numerous drivers and internet related software so the games computer wont be able to access the web - would I have a problem with this?

4) I've been told that microsofts policy is one pc, one xp operating system for life - this being the case, should I actually be buying secondhand?
 

Answer:Is XP for life?

1) Individually bought XPs (regular and OEM alike) have to be registered.
If you get it with a new PC, like a Dell, you can, but don't have to, as Dell etc. have a so-called volume-license.

2) You can, but without registering, they will both stop working after 30 days.
Re-installing from scratch every 30 days is not a viable option.

3) Not being hooked up to the internet means, you don't get any updates.

4) You can install any OS an any PC.
If you have one XP (let's say with registration code 123), install that and register it, fine.
Get another XP (say with reg-code 456), you can install that on the PC with XP-123 on it, provided you wipe the PC first and do a clean install from scratch.
When registering XP-456 it will look like another PC to MS, even if it is the same hardware.

(But why would you want to buy TWO heaps of sh.., one is bad enough already).


Stay with Windows 2000 (like me). A whole load less problems, and SP5 is in the making already, so W2K will be supported for a while to come yet.

I have a problem at present that has me baffled.I recently took the cover off the back of my Dell PC (ME O/s) to add extra RAM, however after adding it and realising it was not detected and having never done this before I decided to remove the additional RAM and leave to a professional to look at after Christmas. However when I removed the RAM and restarted my PC, it was coming on but the light at the front was not, and my monitor remained off, now the CD Drive is working fine and it sounds like it is working but something is amiss, any suggested help would be appreciated.Thanks

stop using the drive untill you can get an undelete app. run the undelete and if you haven't written anything to where itunes was located you might get it back. If you are 64 b it make sure the undelete works with 64

Hi!

Recently, my PC's been acting strange. THe PC boots up normally, but when the desktop's loaded, the last icon displayed is permanently selected, as if someone's pressing and holding down the "down arrow" key. So whenever i double-click on anything, it automatically goes down to the last icon and loads that instead.

Same thing happens when I use my browser (i have to load it thru the start menu). The screen auto-scrolls down to the bottom of the page and i can't move it up...it just keeps going down. Pressing ESC sometimes fixes the problem, but it comes back within mins.

I orginally thought it was a virus but AVG says my system;s cleaned. Then it dawned upon me that maybe it's my keyboard. Keys stopped working a few weeks ago so maybe it's gone bonkers (the board's 2.5 years old). However, i'm not entirely convinced that it's a faulty keyboard because the strange stuff only happens when window's loaded (it happens in SAFE mode too, and in the MS-DOS prompt). When i go to the BIOS settings screen when I boot up, the keyboard behaves (doesn't move down automatically)

oh yeah, when i boot up, the machine makes "ticking" noises. not high pitch error beeps, but low ticking sounds...the sound you hear sometimes when you move your mouse after your PC hangs.

I'll be getting a new keyboard soon, but i thought i'd see if other ppl have had similar experiences.

thanks!

Symptoms: POST screen will appear everything is fine but when it would normally leave POST and boot, the screen disappears (monitor acts like it does when a DPMS or no-signal state is apparent).

History: At one point it did boot fine, and everything worked perfectly. However when it was switched on again for the next session it exhibited the same exact problem again, and continues to do so.

Answer:Battery Life

How old is the machine?As batteries age, they tend to lose their ability to store a charge for a long time. This can be exacerbated if you always keep the battery in the laptop while it's running on mains. Then it's not being regularly fully discharged and then charged right up again, which is what's best for batteries.

Question: Life of CD Burner

What can one expect as the average life of a CD burner...and is spindown time something to mess with or change?
 

Answer:Life of CD Burner

Assuming you have a CD-ROM drive to use for normal reading and games, the burner is likely to last until it is obsolete with normal use.

If your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM has a controllable spin down time it can help recording on the fly to not set the spin down time too short. I see no advantage of setting it for the burner though unless it is just running for a long time after it is used. Normally the defaults are fine. My CD-ROM has a controllable spin down and Iíve never seen any reason to change that from the 2 minute default.

The only circumstance I can think of that the default on the burner might be an issue is if it is the only reader on your system and you use it for games. Some games work better if the reader doesn't spin down too quickly.

Wow that is interesting. I would have thought that Mozilla would have wanted to run with both for at least a year.

Cheers!

Well guess what... Somehow I overlooked the key code in the cd case! So the Key/receipt/box is in the garbage! Does anyone know anyway to get the cd key? I've been trying to play this game for 2 days now and I'm about to flip I'm almost positive I can't get a cd key but I'll give this one last try.

Hi.  I just received a HP 15 Laptop AMD A12 Quad, 12GB RAM, 2TB, computer for Xmas from QVC.   The battery runs down within an hour and I had a Dell that the battery lasted for hours before running down.  I  did do a power saver when a pop up came up for it.   I just need to know if I should keep this computer or take back and get a smaller one?  thank you so much.Renee

Floppy still works as far as I know. ok.. so I got a new hard drive, its 10gig, and was out of a Win98 machine. now is the rough part.. I put in the new hard drive with the jumper on the correct pins, It starts to boot and I get this..

OTI-91x ATAPI CD-ROM device driver REV: D91XV353

Device name : MSCD000
No drives found aborting installation

Device driver not found MSCD000
No vaild CD-ROM device driver selected

C:\


the specs on the machine (that I have) are as follows:
Pentium MMX
233mHz
not sure about memory yet.

Answer:trying to give old pc new life.

are you trying to boot the 98 O/S HDD with that computer? if so. it wont work. the system configuration was for the 98 machine. and not he specs of this computer your trying to boot it with. my advice is to get a new cdrom, run it on the seconday IDE as master. and run the new HDD on the Primary as master. boot to a 98 boot disk and debug, or format the drive and start totally clean. and that should work.. let me know if that helps

I have a brand new T410i.     Running Windows 7.    I've only had it for a few days.   A couple of times already they keyboard has just went "crazy" on me.    I'll be typing away and then the cursor will move to the right, text will erase as I type it.  It happened when I was browsing the web and it will click links on it's own....or if I do a Google search, once the search results come back it will just open one of the links.... The pointer will be hard to control.    The only thing that fixes it is when I shutdown and restart Windows.    No rhyme or reason as to what triggers it.   My laptop was on for a few hours today and then it started acting up.    Any ideas???   I checked the drivers and according to Windows it has the most updated drivers.













Solved!

Answer:Keyboard has life of its own!!!!

Hello mate, Look like an hardware probleme, If your laptop is brand new you should contact Lenovo for the warranty.

I have a lightly used 120 GB HD from my old Dell Dimension 4400. (Probably made in 2001.) The HD is a Western Digital WD1200. It is said to have a 40 pin connector and thereíre four prongs for the power. It wonít hook up to my new Dell Dimension E520. I was wondering if there is any type of exterior hard drive enclosure that would be compatible with the WD1200 so I could use it as an external HD Ė or if there are actual adaptors that can be used to get obsolete HDs to connect with modern equipment.
Please help

Question: half life 2

the crosshair is too faint to see well on HL2. I do not see any settings to increase the visibility or change its color.
 

Answer:half life 2

i never had a problem with it... i dont believe there is a setting to change it. there is one setting you can do to put the health and ammo bars next to the crosshair, and thatll add some size to it... but other than that i dunno.
