Need X230 Dolby settings import file

Question: Need X230 Dolby settings import file

Hello, I currently installed unofficial Dolby driver on my X220. There is big difference from the previous SmartAudio, but I would like to get original settings from X230 (optimized directly to its speakers?). Sound is too good I got some headaches from its surroud... I guess its due the settings are optimized for another machine... Could please somebody extract it for me? (open Dolby settings - extract) Thank You very much!Best regards,Skrble

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.)

Has anyone ever had troubles with this feature before?  I have been using it to back up my autocorrect settings and macros for the past year and have been extremely happy with it, as my work depends on having these autocorrect settings at my fingertips.  However I just tried to do a restore with my backup of my saved settings (OPS) file and I get the following error message: "The OPS file cannot be read by the wizard.  For more information, see the proflwiz.hlp file."  I checked this file out and can't figure out why it's not working, and am getting pretty desperate at this point because my work really depends on these settings which I thought I had done a great job of backing up!  I even tried an earlier version of the file and still the same problem.  Any ideas, or has anyone encountered this before??  I am using the same version of Office that I used to save the file, so that's not the problem...Thanks so much in advance,-lindsey

Answer:Save My Settings Wizard won't let me import my OPS file

Greetings Guys:   I'm upgrading to a new computer. I would like to transfer my AutoCorrect entries from Ms Word 97 to the new computer, preferably using the Save Settings feature and creating a .OPS file. Has anyone done this successfully? If so, please tell me how its done.   Thanks to all.

Hello, Windows 10 just updated the Lenovo Settings app on my ThinkPad T530 (running Windows 10 64-bit Version 1607).  I no longer have access to Dolby Settings in the app...they've disappeared.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Lenovo Settings app, and also uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Lenovo audio drivers.  Nothing is working.   Please help, as my volume is very low and I need the volume leveling feature of Dolby Audio.  Thanks.

Hi all, I have Acer VN7-591G that runs win 8. I have a problem with audio. Whenever I navigate into some options related to mic, my audio almost mutes. I noticed that Dolby Digital Plus just turns off. If I turn it on manually -- everything becomes fine. So to reproduce this problem I can do several things: go to Skype->Audio settings or open Recording Devices with right click on my mixer, or go to any application's settings with microphone (like in any online game), or start a call via Skype with anyone. I assume that I don't have Cortana, so that solution doesn't work for me. Did anyone have/fix this problem? Thanks

Hi, I like to hook up my Thinkpad to power at the office, close the lid and use external display, keyboard, mouse. This was no problem on my X61, but my brand-new X230 canīt do this right. At first, every time I set the AC power setting for "Events" "Lid closed" to "Do nothing", when I applied, closed and reopened the power settings they were back to "Sleep" by magic. I then created a new power scheme, and now it sticks, so when I check the settings for AC power, the "Lid closed" setting remains "Do nothing". But when I close the lid, the computer goes to sleep. Every time. The settings say "do nothing", but it goes to sleep. Lenovo, this is not working. Please fix. Now.

I have an X230 Thinkpad which is about 10 months old. I am getting a new batter (6 cell) as the one it came with isn't giving me good performance - usually only lasts about 2 hours of use. I have the original battery set to "automatically optimize for battery lifespan" in Power Manager. This is my typical use: 1. Charge battery to 100%. Unplug from AC power.2. Use laptop on battery until it is anywhere from 10% to 20% - then plug in and recharge to 100%. Several cycles in a day if heavy use.3. Sometimes the charge cycle is overnight, so it stays plugged in after reaching 100% for several hours - never more than about 8 if it is truly overnight.4. I put it to sleep manually (FnF4) between active sessions. Is there something I can do differently to ensure that the battery both performs well and also lasts more than the 10 months this one has. I never run it consistently on AC power - though I could some of the time. When it was new, I got many more hours on a charge - now it is needing several charges in a day. I have read different things that say never charge it to 100% - but is a setting of 99% as the stopping point a good alternative? I had set it for a manual threshold for a time - but it needed a charge more frequently when set at soemthing like a 90%-30% type of charging scheme. Also - I have 4 GB RAM, run Win 7 Home Premium, and use a USB mouse and a WiFi hotspot at home if those have any effect. Thanks so much! Any ideas appreciated!Lily

Is there a way to import or export IE settings so that I can compare my settings with those of my colleague?

I have a web application that lets users click on a link to view a zipped folder, which resides in a database. My colleague clicks the link and he is taken to another page, where a Save As dialog appears, allowing his to open or save the zipped folder, or cancel the action. However, when I try it, the new page opens briefly, then closes again without showing the dialog.

I need to know what settings are different without having to go through each setting one by one.

Answer:Import export IE settings

The only "Settings" you can import or export are Cookies, Favorites and Feeds. You could take screen shots of your settings but you'll need quite a few such as 2-3 just for "Advanced".

Your profile are stored somewhere under your own local settings folder, just syn the contents there.

Or a better way is use Portable Firefox. Totally stand alone and with it on your D: never having to worry about profile getting wipped by reformats.

OK so i installed a new TB HD from WD yesterday and i have had a 64 bit OS ( i have 32 bit vista now ) cd laying around for awhile. I figured i would install it on the new HD so i could get the cheap upgrade to 7 next month. Well the HD install and format went well yesterday and i installed the OS this morning on the new HD. But now, like i figured, all the settings and drivers are on the other hard drive. So my dual monitors are not set up and i cant get on the internet. I cant even find the nvidia program to set up the dual monitors so i am assuming it is on the other HD somewhere. I copied and pasted the driver files from the old HD to the new one, but that didnt do anything. I even put the wireless network adapter cd and installed it. Still says i dont have a wireless network adapter installed ( i hope its 64 bit compatible, its a "wireless G network adapter model no. WMP54G ). I need some help please guys thanks.

Answer:Need help with 32 to 64 bit upgrade, cant figure out how to import old settings

You cannot use 32 bit drivers on a 64 bit OS - the hardware just won't work.
You'll need to use another computer to download the 64 bit drivers for your wireless card. Once that's done, then you can use your own computer to download the rest of the 64 bit drivers.

There's no upgrade path between 32 bit and 64 bit.

Good Very Hello!

Is there a way in Windows 7 Ultimate "Task Scheduler" to export and import all settings at once rather than selecting each one and doing them all manually? Any help or a point in the right direction to do so is certainly appreciated as far as you know!

Answer:Import/Export Entire Task Scheduler Settings?

you can try this:
Open regedit in both boxes.
Export the following to files.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows

do a diff on the different files and update the target file with the keys you want to add.
reimport and maybe it will work.

worst case it will screw up your machine, so do make a backup beforehand

The consensus on this build seems to be that it is feature complete, but would I be correct in hopefully assuming that the ability to delete files on import and choose default landing locations for pictures would be something that is to come?

I love Win 8 but it really seems almost massively incomplete standing next to say the Windows 7 early builds just before release versions. I mean stability wise etc. etc. as well.

I'm not just hoping for tweaks and minor bug fixes, but larger usability changes, the photo's app being just a minor example of this type of thing.

Just thinking out loud I guess.

Metro apps are all about... simplicity. They do one Thing and they do it... ok not "Well"... more like... "Pretty"? (But not even then in a lot of cases).

The days of choice and configuration and, I hate to say but, the days of the power user are waning fast

If you are looking for control or options or configuration in a Metro app, you may never find it. It goes against the entire premise. One premise being that the user should not be worrying about where their files are... I wouldn't expect anything more by launch date. Maybe sometime in the future you'll be able to pay for the privilege of a usable, non-toy-like photo app in the app store...

I think all the issues I am having with W10 are user account based. Under Users on the C: drive, I have two Users being shown. I have no idea how that happened. I tried to figure out which one Windows was using, which I thought I did and deleted the other one (names it user.old, actually). Windows recreated that user directory. And now I am having issues searching my computer using the W10 search. I believe this is user related as I created a dummy user account and search worked perfectly when I logged into it. I really need search in my work.

So my question is, after that wordy intro, is there a way to create a new User with Admin rights and then import all my settings, programs, and files to that new account so everything runs like it does on my current user account, but without all the user problems? Maybe this wouldn't solve my issues, but it seems as if it would be worth a shot.

A in-place repair is not a viable option for me as I continually get the Modern Host error during the setup.

Anyway, thanks for any thoughts on this.

Other than that change, I?m re-installing and re-activating all the software from the old system onto the new system.
My question concerns Outlook 2010. Since Microsoft took away their simple email client, Windows Mail, I?ve been forced to use Outlook 2010 for my personal home use. Over time, by hiding this function and re-arranging that, I?ve been able to simplify the Outlook GUI to a tolerable level for my personal home use. Of course, when I re-installed Office Professional 2010 Plus with Outlook on the new system, all the useless (for me) bells and whistles are back and I have to also set up my email accounts all over again.

Hi,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)?  Thanks. (confused now) @@

Answer:Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

I only installed audio driver ver. which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

Hi Guys,
I recently upgraded a W520 to Windows 10 with the Dolby HT installed. Of course it no longer works and the audio is horrible again, especially from the internal microphones.
Has anyone come up with a way to install the Dolby Digital Plus on the Conexant based systems? I really need the improved audio for my softphone ASAP.

Hi,    i just bought a laptop Lenovo T530 which came with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 with Realtek audio drivers. When i turned it on, the sound was pretty bad as there were no preset equalizer profiles, I however had the options for Games, Movies, Music but those settings were all kept to normal. I'm no audio expert, so i couldnt create new profiles and set the equalizer settings myself because even when i tried, the sound did'nt help much. So i got to know that Dolby Home Theatre v4 has lot of options and even some preset equalizer settings too. Now my question is how to upgrade from Dolby AA v3 to Dolby HT v4. I downloaded the realtelk audio drivers from lenovo support site, uninstalled my realtek audio driver and dolby AAC, deleted the Dolby folder in the registry. I then installed the downloaded Realtek audio driver for my model and again the Dolby AAC was back , I uninstalled Dolby AAC and tried to install the Dolby HT v4.msi which i found in the PCEE folder of the installation. But i get an error when running the installation that Dolby HT cannot be installed. Any idea on how to solve this?

Question: Import reg file.

I was installing a software from the installation file from my external hard drive when I accidentally knocked it and lost connection.

When I tried to reinstall it again, it gave errors so I cleaned up my registry using CCleaner. Tried reinstalling, it didnt work.

I looked up online for some good registry cleaners and found jv16 Power Tools 2012. First I exported my registry from regedit. Then I scanned using jv16 and proceeded to clean my registry under the false impression that exporting registry meant a complete export.

After cleaning with jv16 I restarted my computer and found most of my programs not working, like MS Outlook would open, then try to install MS Office and then give an error.

I then tried to import the backup reg file and that too gave an error
"Cannot import C:\regback.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes."

Now I dont even have audio. Anybody know of anyway I can fix this?

I dont know what information to provide so please ask and I will paste it all here. Also, I dont know if this has been discussed before so if yes, please direct me to the post.

Thank you.

This is on Windows 7, so when I right click the .bat file and click "Run as Administrator" I still get no success. Any ideas?

Why a .bat file? So it can be executed in this software auto installation program I making. It only executes .bats, .vbs, and .exe's.

I have gone to the Hyper-V Manager, selected Import Virtual Machine. I select the proper directory and then I get the message, "Hyper-V did not find virtual machines...". I am running as administrator.



Answer:How to import a VHD file into Hyper-V

From Hyper-V manager in the "Actions" pane, click "Import Virtual Machine"
On the before you begin page, Click "Next"

On the Locate Folder navigate to where you have the VM's stored, Then choose the root of the VM for example if your Virtual machine was called "RDS1" you will have a folder named "RDS1" and below that three more files in the tree "snapshots", "Virtual Hard Disk" and "Virtual machine". Do not click in to the individual folders at this point just point it at the root as shown below:

Click "Next"

Select your VM and click "Next"

on the "Import port page" I normally leave as default then click "next"

Then Finish.

That is how I do it through the Hyper-V manager.

A DBF file from Goldmine won't import to MS Access. The file claims it is being used, but it is not being used. The file is not in Read Only mode. Other files exactly like it do import to MS Access, so the problem is not in Access or the compatibility of the import process. The problem is almost certainly in the file. This is not the only file that has made such claims. This is a seemingly very simple problem, but very annoying.

I would like to import a text file in a certain workbook, in a certain tab. When I open a text document in excel it always opens a new workbook. Is there a way that I can open the same .txt file and have it stay in the Workbook and tab I am currently in?

I would like to automate a process where several .txt documents are imported into the same file, but even running the macro below causes it to open a new workbook.

Any Thoughts?

Sub Macro1()

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
"C:\Program Files\PTI\MUST 9.1\Program\systlist.lis", Origin:=437, _
StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, _
ConsecutiveDelimiter:=True, Tab:=True, Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, _
Space:=True, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1), Array(2, 1), Array(3 _
, 1), Array(4, 1), Array(5, 1), Array(6, 1), Array(7, 1), Array(8, 1)), _
End Sub

Answer:Import a text file to a certain tab.

To open a text document in the same workbook, make sure the tab you want the text imported into is active. If you are using Excel 2003, use the Import Data command (Get External Data submenu on the Data menu), instead of the Open command that it seems like you have been using. if you are using Excel 2007, click the Data Tab on the ribbon and choose From Text.

As to batch importing, I have not yet figured out how to make this work in the active document, but if you want a macro that allows you to select which files you want to import, and then it places the data from those files onto the separate worksheets in a new workbook, you can use the following code:
Sub CombineTextFiles()
Dim FilesToOpen
Dim x As Integer
Dim wkbAll As Workbook
Dim wkbTemp As Workbook
Dim sDelimiter As String

On Error GoTo ErrHandler
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

sDelimiter = "|"

FilesToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename _
(FileFilter:="Text Files (*.txt), *.txt", _
MultiSelect:=True, Title:="Text Files to Open")

If TypeName(FilesToOpen) = "Boolean" Then
MsgBox "No Files were selected"
GoTo ExitHandler
End If

x = 1
Set wkbTemp = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=FilesToOpen(x))
Set wkbAll = ActiveWorkbook
wkbTemp.Close (False)

3. If a backup or image was made, what app did you use to make it?

I am trying to find out what other mail programs I can import a .pst file from Outlook 2003.

A friend of mine has a new computer with 30 day trial of outlook 2003. Thirty days are up and now outlook was getting some error messages and not operating. I exported all the folders and emails to a .pst file. I tried removing the outlook 2003 but it gives me a strange error message that I can not recall right now. I then as an experiment loaded office 2000 on his pc and tried to import the .pst file to Outlook 2000. But apparently the .pst file is not compatible with Outlook 2000? Anyone know of another mail program I can download that would import the .pst file? Or is there a conversion program if that is not possible?

thanks in advance,

Answer:any programs you can import a .pst file?

The general advice seems to be -- create an new PST in the older format, then "copy the data from the 2003 file to the 97-2002 file using drag and drop. Once populated, open the .pst file in the older Outlook using File > Open > Outlook Data File to access the .pst". Unless of course 2003 isn't working at all.

Same error every time. Luckily I was able to import them into FF3 and from there into IE9 via "Import from another browser".

Has anyone experienced this error in IE9? Thanks in advance.

Can't import an ics file to google calendar using IE9 in win7 but it will import fine using Firefox. The file comes from Lightning and is fairly small.

I get no errors. A popup rectangle comes up with "Import calendar" in it and it basically just hangs doing nothing. Clicking the X in that popup clears it so the system is still running.

While I have the file imported now, I am wondering what might be the problem with my IE9 installation.

Any ideas??

Hi Friends,I've been trying Mozilla Thunderbird instead of Outlook Express and have been impressed - apart from trying to import the email address book from OE. The rest of the installation was smooth and easy but this didn't happen. It said that the address book couldn't be found. My fault by letting someone else mess with the pc! I did find the .wab address book eventually, but in trying to open it, I was told 'the address book has been locked by another application. Please close the application and try later. How can I unlock this or, as OE seems to be messed around, can I re-install it to free it? But where could I download a fresh copy from? Also, if I release the wab file, where do I place it in the Thunderbird file in the application data file in Documents and settings folder if I manually import it? I ue Windows XP Professional. Thanks in advance,Richard.

Answer:import wab file to Thunderbird prob

Try to copy your OE address book to floppy then import to Tbird. Open Tbird/tools/import.

...There may be a disk or file system error.

Happens when double-clicking reg-file on the NAS-share, which is mapped as a network drive.
User is a user with admin rights (membership of Administrators group), and it is the first and only user that was created while W10 was installed.

So what I tried:
Run regedit as Admin, importing, no-go.
Placing reg-file on desktop and executing, OK.
Accessing via UNC, OK.
Log in as user Administrator, I can execute the reg-file from the NAS too.

I read something about taking ownership, so I tried it on that specific key, but still no go from the user-acct.

Though I don't quite understand, why if the key is owned by Group Administrators, I, as a part of that group, cannot exec a reg-file, especially only when a drive is mapped.
The various variables here just don't "compute" for me...

(if it helps, I cannot copy the .reg file from the NAS to the C-Drive directly, but have to copy to desktop first and then onto C:, with the prompt for admin permission.)

Though this WAS working as I upgraded my machine from Win7 -> Win10 previously, and was working on upgraded Win10 too. This only started happening after new install.

Any ideas what's going on here?

According to this: Mobile Community - HERE Maps (online or WP8): POI import? - Microsoft Mobile Community it's only possible on Symbian Belle. So if you've got one of these at hand, you can import your POIs which will then sync to your WP device.
