Question: T440 giving Fan Error

I have a T440 that is giving a fan error message and then shuts off immediately. And, of course it just went out of warranty last month! Any ideas as how to fix?

Preferred Solution: T440 giving Fan Error

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.)

Answer: T440 giving Fan Error

It is a pain that it just went out of warranty. That seems early for a fan to die. I don't know how handy you are about doing things yourself. You just need a screwdriver, but some people are comfortable doing things like that and some are not. I am assuming the problem is the fan itself, because the only other part involved is the motherboard which is a much bigger issue. I would say that in 90% of cases it is the fan itself. The fan can be accessed by removing the bottom cover. The fan can then be removed and replaced. On newer machines, I always suggest a new fan, as opposed to a used one, which should come pre-pasted. Here is a link to the service manual. See what you think:

The other night I was working on my T440 and all of a sudden the screen flashed and powered off. At the very last moment I seen a critically low battery error. I immediately plugged it ina nd tried to power on again, I got to the splash screen, then it flashed the battery error again and shutdown. I ordered a Lenovo battery of the same exact size brand new installed it and now I am not getting anything. I allowed the unit to charge while plugged in for a little while and still nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T440 and the batteries are showing battery error in the Power Manager. I am unable to update my BIOS to see if that will solve it and my batteries don't seem to be eligible for a Firmware update. My Warranty is also expired. Anyone have any suggestions? error is showing up on both batteries  (Front internal and rear removable). Laptop works fine when plugged in but will not power on if it does not have a charger connected. Batteries don't charge at all (With or without it being powered on) All suggestions welcome. Would prefer not to have to get a new battery set as these ones are relatively new and shouldn't be throwing this error. I do not have a spare Thinkpad I can test the batteries in or that I can test a known good battery from.

I have a T440 that just started giving errors when connected to an external AC power supply.  When an AC power supply is connected and batteries are installed, I get an error message every few seconds that matches the one described int he KB article "ThinkPad T440p / T540p screen flicker, brightness changing or switching to airplane mode while on AC."  It looks like this:The screen becomes dim when this error comes up and the batteries stop charging.  The screen then becomes brighter again and the same error comes up. The cycle lasts a few seconds and repeats.Essentially the system seems to think the AC supply is being connected and disconnected over and over.   I do not use a dock.I have tried 3 different AC adapters (PNs 45N0358, 45N0312, and 45N0482), multiple different wall receptacles, and also tried connecting to a docking station, all with the same results.  When no AC power is connected (running off of batteries only) everything runs normally.  When both batteries are removed (running off of AC power only) everything runs normally.  The issue only occurs when one or both batteries are in the computer and trying to charge.The fact that I get the same issue when connecting to a docking station rather than the normal external AC power supply, combined with the fact that it runs fine off of AC when batteries are removed, makes me think this is not a simple connection issue with the power jack or power connector.Any input would be mu...

Answer:T440 gives AC power error when batteries are present

This is a known issue. The fix is to install the latest version of Power Manager and add the registry file described at You may also want to read agree that this is not intuitive at all because the error message blames the dock rather than explaining that it is related to an Airplane Mode setting in Power Manager.

PC Details: Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15
Bios Version: 8ACN08WW
Windows license: Std
History: I was trying to recover with OneKey to initial setting.
After running for around 12 minutes, I got this error: 0xE0EF0050.
And now when I boot up, I am getting the error:
Your PC Needs to be repaird
The application or operating system couldn't be located because a required file is missing or contains errors
Error code:0xc000000f
You'll need to use recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer."
And no, I do not have any recovery media. Just bought this laptop on Thanks Giving.
2 questions:

Can I recover windows from here without addition recovery media?
Where do I get Windows key? Where windows key should be, Bios screen just says "std"

Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Onekey Recovery error code 0xE0EF0050 and now PC is giving boot error

hi Funzine,
Regarding your questions:
1. Since the OneKey Recovery process didn't completed, it's highly unlikely that you'll be able to restore Windows without using a recovery drive (see this method), a recovery disc (can be obtain from lenovo), or a standalone copy of Windows.
2. For lenovo systems preloaded with Windows 8, the Windows product key is embedded on the motherboard's BIOS. "STD" indicates that you have a Windows 8 Standard License. If you want to see this key, you will need to run Belarc Advisor or a similar tool in Windows to extract it.
If you haven't created a recovery drive using this method to Refresh / Reset the system, try running the OneKey Recovery the second time and observe. If it still fails, I recommend you contact lenovo for service or request a recovery disc (you can also tell the rep. to refer from this thread for more info).
Hope you get the nnit fixed soon.

I recently noticed that the system was trying to do 7 updates every day at closedown, and found that update was giving a return code of 800736b3.

I have run SURT several times, and it doesn't seem to give any results (or should I be looking somewhere else?).

I ran sfc /scannow and extracted the results and they are in sfcdetails.txt (attached). SFC said there were some files it couldn't fix, even though sfcdetails.txt says it has fixed all of them. is much too big to upload using the paperclip - is there another way?

I tried restoring to an earlier restore point, and unfortunately all the attempted updates have flushed my list of restore points - and the oldest few all give me a return code of x00000022.

Not sure if this is one problem or two...! I am reluctant to do a System Recovery as it sounds pretty drastic - help would be much appreciated!

PS Is any more info required?

I wanted to know about dll files and thereby solving my problem. I installed a software in windows 8.1. When I started it, it quit saying certain dll files not found. So are dll files present in windows installation or are they installed by the software. I tried by downloading these files and pasting into installation directory. I could not find all of them. Even if I get all the required dll files, will this method solve the problem. (sfc command gave negative result, malware check also gave negative result). Since I understand dll files to be for windows based systems, is there any site by microsoft which provides all these files.

Emma Good.

Answer:Installed software in Win 8.1 giving dll error

Most software comes with dll files specific to the application. They must also be compatible with the OS. There is a way to force dll registration with regsvr32 command but again the dll(s) must be compatible. The dll(s) normally has to go in the System32 or SysWOW64 folder.

It would help to know what software you are trying to install. The installer should do everything automatically. Have you tried installing using compatibility mode?

Hi I have one of the small computers and all of a sudden I started getting this code everytime I start up my computer. It just keeps popping up over and over again. "Setup error: failed to load resources from resource file please check your setup" I am not sure what to check and even if I tried it is difficult to do anything since this error will not stop popping up ever second. This computer was a gift. It is a Asus EEE PC 701SD with Windows XP. I do not know much about computers but if there is something I can do to attempt to fix it I would like to try. I do not have anything important saved on it so if I need to wipe everything off I do not mind that either. I was going to try to restart it fresh, but usually a computer has a recover disk for that and this one does not even have a rom drive with it. Any help would be appreciated.

If someone could please try and help me fix this or just start over.

Ok I have a emachine e725 running windows 7 32bit and a acer running on windows vista. My emachine recently crashed in the blue screen and I tried to complete a system restore. I was able to get through the advanced boot menu and use the repair your computer option to restore windows. During the windows setup process I got another blue screen and the computer restarting. It then started the process over and once it got to the step that says windows is preparing setup, it gives an error msg saying something along the lines of windows was interupted and needs to restart to complete installation, and it has an option to press ok. This cycle continues and I can not open in safe mode because it says "windows can not complete the installation in safemode. Also the option to repair your computer in the advanced menu options is no longer available.

-You must have tons of email in your Inbox, Sent, Trash, Misc. ect. to have 2GB. There is a size limit. This could be your problem. Do a Google search to find out the size limit and how to archive folders for your version if you really need to keep that much.

You won't lose your email. At least I didn't when I needed to do this to restore when something broke in Outlook.

But I really believe your problem is with the amount of email you are storing.

Hello TSF.

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.

Is there some way to fix this?

Answer:IE keeps crashing and giving me Error Messages

Hi jstaring...
I'm not entirely sure exactly what could be causing those errors...Knowing Windows, it could be anything. I do have a couple of suggestions, however.

1) <-- this is the homepage of a truly fantastic replacement for Windows Explorer, (file management) which in my experience is a lot more stable as well...You might want to check it out, as it is also a lot more configurable than the standard Explorer as well.

2) Unless you need Internet Explorer for something specific, I can't encourage you strongly enough to go and download Firefox from It's faster, more stable, and a whole lot more secure than IE, and in 98% of cases reads Web pages equally well. It is also extremely extensible, with support for advanced download management, RSS feeds directly from bookmarks, and a number of other great things.

If you still need Internet Explorer (a corporate intranet which has DirectX, for example) about the only thing I can suggest is reinstalling Windows. There are just too many possible problems with Windows and IE to be able to have any idea as to what is causing the problem. If you can though, get the two programs mentioned above. I think you will find them tremendously helpful.

Hello! I have two T-43 2668 laptops, and this past week my regularly used one stopped working, and rendered this message when attempting to boot:"Kernal Stack InPage Error""Windows could not start because <Windows Root>\System 32\hal.dll is missing or corrupt"---I then took out my backup, booted it, and went online to see how to repair this issue. Within minutes, the second laptop threw up a blue screen, then when I rebooted machine 2 had the same error message as for the first machine. Now for another quirky aspect- when trying a few times to reboot machine number 2, I ended up putting it on its edge and looked at machine 1 for a while. When I reopened #2, it had booted normally to Windows, and was usable for several hours. Then when I closed the lid, it went back to the hal.dll error. I bumped it on its edge a couple of times, and it again booted fine, so I've left the machine on since, without shutting it down or closing the lid (clearly some sort of a physical issue). Thinking it may be something other than the hard drive, I removed the HD from machine 1, put it into an external enclosure, but could not get the two computers I had access to over the weekend to do more than ultimately find that there was an external storage device attached, but could not get in. Also, when attached to the computers, it pretty much locked them up. The laptop's HD made a cyclical, low volume, "growly" noise. A knowledgeable friend said he had good luck on a couple o...

Before I post I'd like to say sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in.

I recently started having problems with my computer due to a virus or malware. I have run multiple spyware, and adware removal programs (Mcafee, Spybot search and destroy, AVG, Avira, adaware) most of which have detected things but could not fix. Mcafee has detected a wide range of stuff and has attempted to fix them whether or not that worked remains to be seen (see below for Mcafee log). I belive the virus or malware might have been successfully removed from the computer thanks to Mcafee but the registry is still messed up. Every time I open a program whether Firefox, or Spybot Searchand Destroy I get the bad image error message which forces me to hit ok as it attempts to load the program and any dependency's it may require. Spybot search & Destroy has not been able to load it's GUI at all. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. I've tried running it in safe mode too. The process loads but no GUI pops up. The Spybot resident shield loads fine though.

so does anyone have any ideas of fixing or removing this problem without having to insert a new floppy drive

thank you

Answer:Computer beeping and giving me drive A error

You have to press F2 o continue?
So it must also say F1 to get into Bios on the same screen

Just hold down F1 key after you first turn on the computer, then locate 1.44Meg Floppy, and disable it, then save and exit Bios settings.

What happened to your Toshiba Laptop issue and MSI Motherboard issue?
You seem to be going through these computers
I've already quoted you the HP support thread, so if you have any further issues always look there first, or H E R E basically.

Note: Older Compaq computers may use the F1, F2, F10, F11 or Del key to give access to BIOS.

I can't wait for your next thread, will it be, "how do I find my manual?" or something bizarre like that?
I think with 73 posts it's really time to update your Profile with your System Specs, don't you feel?
It will save saying what you have all the time on every new thread. Oh and try to put HP Pavilion plus Model Number, it helps support to support you better

Well, I've got another stumper for the community here. This time, it's my windows 7 ultimate x64 laptop. During a routine starting up of Windows, the startup process halted and rebooted the whole computer. It will constantly loop unless you press the "startup repair" button, which gives instructions to boot from the setup DVD. This screen also gives the error 0xc000000e at the bottom accompanied by the message "The Boot Selection Failed Because A Required Device Is Inaccessible".

At this point, I hadn't shut down the computer for several days. Here's a list of things I could think of that had changed between now and the last successful boot that could have caused a problem:

- Updated Malwarebytes' (requested a reboot)
- Updated Windows Live Writer
- Installed potential malware (this one seems like a likely candidate for catastrophic problems to me)

After this, I immediately gave safemode a try and found I could boot up okay that way, so I ran a full scan in malwarebytes of all my partitions. It found 40somethin' results, but all except for one were false positives, and the one that it did find was in the recycle bin or something. Nevertheless, I cleansed the one file, rebooted, still no fix.

Next, I busted out the setup DVD to do one of its startup repairs. The first time I ran it, it said something about fixing a disk something or another and something else about it taking possibly over an hour. After five minutes of Hard drive activity, it ... Read more

Answer:Security Essentials is giving error when trying to update


Yes, the fact that you have not updated Windows with important security patches for "quite some time" may be contributing to your problem.

The free upgrade offer from Win7 to Win10 ended months ago.
There are no more "GWX" reminders.
So there is currently no solid reason to refuse important security patches for Windows and your other MS software (e.g. MS Office).
If you are missing one or more months worth of security updates, your system is vulnerable.

As a general principle (with rare exceptions), one should install at least ALL "critical" and "important" SECURITY updates.
The decision to install "Recommended" and "Optional" patches, especially those that are not security-related, is up to the user. You'll need to read the descriptions of each available patch to determine if it applies to or might be needed for your system.

I do not use MSE.
So I cannot help specifically with the error message you report.
But, for starters, I would suggest running Windows Update manual checks and installing ALL available "Critical" and "Important" SECURITY updates.
It may have to be done in batches, depending on how many of them you are missing.
In other words, do not try to install 20 or 30 security patches all at once.
I suggest leaving ".NET framework" patches for last.

And you will need to reboot several times during the process, when prompted.

Hey guys,

I think I have tried everything. When I was installing windows onto the pc it kept restarting and giving blue screens. It stopped for a bit and then all of a sudden it wouldnt even let me turn on the computer again. Now its fine again.. but I feel like its going to do the same thing again. I am wondering if anyone can help out with the errors. I tried changing the memory and running mem test with no errors. I also used memory that worked fine in my other computer and the same errors still occured. I am thinking it could be power supply but I am not to sure. Someone has posted to upload mini dump so that you guys can see what the error is so I am going to upload it to the file . If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time

HiI used to use a software link 10 years ago on a Windows 98 Operating System for a special effect to use with some music I had written and was recording. The software link is still available now but when I click the link, I get a HTTP 403 error. The exact webpage error is:-! The website declined to show the webpage HTTP 403Is this error happening because I am now using Windows Vista? and if so, I am right to assume that the software link will work if I use it with an old Windows 98 Operating System again the same as 10 years ago?The software webpage looks exactly the same now as it did 10 years ago.Hope you can help.ThanksDanny1234

Answer:10 Year Old Software giving HTTP 403 Error

I recently removed a program from PC. Unfortunately my system crashed on restart after this. However, everything is back to normal now except that every time during start up I have a message - Run time error '429' ActiveX component can't create object. The programs emblem also appears in the toolbar. It's annoying having to delete this every time I switch on. How do I correct?

Answer:Removed program giving start up error

How did you remove the program?

Checked email, Then a couple minutes after I closed the window a friend said he'd just emailed the new specs on a project we've been working on. So I reopened outlook, and right after it opens to a normal screen it switches over to large text that in a format that can't be navigated easily with this message at the bottom:

"It looks like you may be using an unsupported browser. For the best Outlook experience on the web, the latest version of a modern browser is recommended. Please see System requirements for Office for more details and a list of supported browsers."

I'm not seeing any history in windows update of GeForce drivers being installed, but that could be the issue. However, now matter what order or how I uninstall/re-install drivers, I keep getting this error and GeForce Experience stops or won't start. Getting a little annoyed and not seeing too much info about this. This isn't SLI. Any help or info would be great.

I had this problem with my GTX 970 but I had a second card installed (GTX 580). I assume that as you are using a laptop, you don't have another card installed but it may be caused by your on-board graphics - try disabling in BIOS.

WHAT does the app store mean when they say "name on card" at checkout? I tried my name (which they ask for elsewhere), the name OF the card, which is Visa (they also ask for that in another place), and "Gift Card Recipient", which is what is actually printed on the card. I've used the card before with no problem, and I just checked the balance, which is considerably more than the measly 99 cents they're giving me trouble over. What do they want??

Answer:Why does the app store keep giving me error messages at checkout?

The card holder's name?
If it is a Microsoft Gift Card, add that directly into your Wallet in the Add Card function... Then in Store Settings, make Microsoft Gift Card the preferred payment method.

I have just built a Pentium 4 system using SDRAM. I transferred my HD running XP to the new system but it crashed when windows started to load. I then formatted the drive and tried to load XP from the CD but it gets to the third blue screen (loading windows executive) and comes up with the message "File\i386\ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded, error code is 7". The MS knowledgebase says this is caused by dodgy memory but I have tried several different mem modules to no effect. Sometimes the file mentioned in the error message is different ie.i386\1_intl.nls. The XP cd has loaded OK on previous systems.Any help would be appreciated.

Hi everyone, I recently had the latest windows update install, which caused my computer to BSOD a couple of times. I managed to revert it back to the old settings without any issue. However, now there is another problem. Whenever I log in, an error message appears and has this text: 'Please install the correct display driver before using OneKey Theatre' I'm a little lost as to what I should do. I tried going to the lenovo website to obtain the display driver for my lenovo Y480, but when i choose Windows 7 as my operating system, it shows that there are no options available for me to download.  Also, I've noticed that after this huge microsoft update, I cannot put my laptop to Sleep mode or Hibernate it either. This update from microsoft has really caused some rather annoying nuisances for me. Would anyone be able to offer any help? Thanks!

Answer:Lenovo y480 One Key Theater giving pop up error.

hi brendanooi19,
Welcome to the Forums.
Just checked the driver from the lenovo website ( and found these Windows 7 drivers for the Ideapad Y480: Can you try to install one of the following and observe:
Intel Onboard Graphics Driver for 32-bit Windows Intel Onboard Graphics Driver for 64-bit Windows     Version: (HD Audio:
Nvidia Display Driver for 32-bit Windows Nvidia Display Driver for 64-bit Windows
     Version: (Physx:9.11.1111)
For the sleep issue, does the power button blink when you manually put the computer to sleep? Is the computer going to sleep mode after you leave it on idle after a specified number of minutes?
Let me know how it goes.

I have been on the HP forums and done all the suggested fixes such as plugging into a wall socket, no surge protector; did a hard reset; cleans the bulb. I believe my trouble started when I plugged psc into a smart surge protector that is shuts off the power to all but pc. It still doesn't work. I just bought a used HP 6500 but need to install through ethernet and modem/router, but don't know how to do that either. Probably needs to be a different post?

I replaced my 6 yr old system with an Acer Aspire TC-780-ES13 with Windows 10. I plugged in a Western Digital My book, logitech sound system and a Canon printer, keyboard and a wireless mouse. After the first time user start up completed, I checked the documents and pictures in drive (E ):My Book and was satisfied I could view the documents and I even set my desk top background with a personal photo from the My Book.

In under 10-20 minutes, my next attempt to enter My Book threw the following error message:
(X) Windows cannot find 'E:\40 Ford project ideas\40 Build thread photos\201507145_185157 - Copy.jpg'. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. (OK)
This occurred with the very photo I had just opened and made the background with and also occurs with all photos in My Book

Next morning I get this error message
(X) Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\WindowsAppsAcerIncorporated.AcerPortal_1.1.9.0_x86__48frkmn4z8aw4\AcerPortal\AcerPortal.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again. (OK)

I also received an email with a photo. I saved the photo to my desktop. Then when trying to open the photo from my desktop, I receive the following:
(X) Windows cannot find 'C:\Users/vls48/Desktop\Screenshot_2017-12-05-15-07-23.png'. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. (OK)

My PC knowledge base is non existent so please, keep suggestions to resolve as simple as you can. Thank you.

Hey guys,

I recently just saw a video :

Showing how to remove virus as my computer is having problems with the Project64 2.1 emulator keeps closing whenever I load a game and when I try to check out if it's a problem with the rom in the emulator under the Rom's Information section I get the following error:

Microsoft Visual C++ Error

R6002 floating point support not loaded

So I've been checking on the Internet that it's usually caused by the Sailty virus and when I checked my computer with malwarebytes I had a ton of them.

So when I tried giving Dr. Web CD a try it gave me the following error on boot up:

This kernel required an X86-64 CPU, but only detected a i686 CPU.
Unable to boot. Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.
Sorry for the long story lol, just wanted you guys to have the most information possible!! My PC specs are in the attachment.
