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.)

Answer: Using the power adapter from idea u460 to idea u310 touch

hi abeltran,

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

Just to verify, do you have these AC adapter specs:

IdeaPad U310 Touch AC Adapter
Ideapad U460 AC Adapter

If both adapter have DC19V, 3.42A then you should be okay.

More info in this article.

My laptop's screen has been flickering a lot for the past 3 months. There are no color changes. But there are lot of lines displaying that move up and down the screen and make it difficult to read. When I plug in the laptop to an external monitor, I still see flickering on my laptop's display but there is no flickering on the external monitor. So, my guess is something's wrong with the LCD. FLickering occurs occasionally and when it occurs it flickers a lot. It happens even during the boot load process. So, I doubt if it has got anything to do with graphics drivers. It stops when I try to tap on the table on which the laptop is kept, or if I hit once on the lcd screen. My laptop is 2.5yrs old. Can anyone help me with what I need to do?

My power adapter to my Y500 Idea pad is messed up. The wiring inside must have gotten damaged somehow and is now faulty. It only charges my laptops when angle in certain positions, or goes in and out. It's the 170W AC adapter one, but is there really a difference in using one of the small Wattage Adapters? The 170W one is just way out of price-range for me so I'm looking for one of the cheaper versions. I found one online that is "Y500 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A". Would that work with my laptop?  I don't understand how different wattages affect my laptop (I'm assuming it affects charging time) so any help is appreciated. I generally keep my laptop plugged in with the battery removed, so I don't have to worry too much about charging the battery, if that's any help.Thank you!

This pc was bought nearly a year some ago, it had been dead for multiple times even since several months ago, sometimes the mouse cursor became a circle running, sometimes the screen frozens, sometime my pc screen went black,I heard abnormal noises coming out of my pc hardware but not sure which of it is problematic.Anyway I finally decided to onekey recover my pc, and it was successfully recovered, however my screen frozens again in the initial setup procedures when I was almost finished registering my name and new password,then it turned to black screen, a window of boot menu and app menu then shows up, not knowing the meaning of it, I am now stuck here, and I am helpless, been looking for helping thread over the Internet, but there are too much informations out there that are really helpful for me, I really wish if some of you who experienced the same problem can share your methods that solved your problem, I really would like to attach a few screenshots showing my pc screen, as a first time user, I beg for your understanding and excuse my English, thank you everyone

Answer:My idea u310 Pc has recently experienced slow running system.

Hi JerryChicken,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
 As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system is very slow.
 
Try to perform a power drain by removing the external devices and try to power on the system by novo button and check for the issue.
 
Also try to run the diagnostics and check for the issue as this will help us know if there are issue issues with RAM or HDD.
 
Also try to remove the HDD if possible and check if the system boots to the BIOS.
 
Also try to run the antivirus and check if there are any bugs in the system.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
        
Best regards,

Dropbox + Sugarsync - running both at the same time - good idea or bad idea?
Will they both be thrashing my machine and eating up lots of CPU like a hungry monster?

Thanks
OM
 

Answer:Running Sugarsync + Dropbox at the same time - good idea or bad idea?

You can be specific about what each actually synchronizes so I don't see that as a CPU issue. However if using both over the Internet with one of the more substantial data plans to sync, I would wonder which gets priority or how well they share the upload bandwidth. Wouldn't be so good if one was always grabbing it to sync in the off-load times and the other just kept waiting and waiting for its turn.

I was walking through Best Buy the other day and noticed somthing that I havnt seen before or paid much attention to so if this is somthing that has been discussed before then pardon me.
HP has a few systems out that ship with touch screen monitors.

Do you think that this is somthing that can become a norm in desktop computing ? I personally think that it is cool, but as far as functuality goes there is really not a point. The monitors that I played with where really kind of had a touchy touch interface and it really didnt seem as I could do anything faster with my finger on the screen than I could do with a mouse. In my opinion,mouse control was probably twice as fast.

The only real application that I could see a touch desktop monitor used for is hands on applications for children such as paint and a few games designed around the concept or for somone that has a disability that does not let them grip a mouse functionally.

Touch panals do have their place in industry as it makes very quick work for bar tenders to select a inventoried item or any retailer/resturant for that matter or for such things as time clocks at factories so I am for it in that aspect.

I guess I just wanted some views and insight on what everyone thinks of this new concept to desktop computing and what pros and uses you can come up with.

Thanks
 

Answer:Touch Screen Desktop Monitors A Good Idea?

Hi

In the EPOS industry touch screens are standard and work best as they eliminate the keyboard which is a weak point in security, as users like to press buttons and those who are savvy can use the keyboard to do things that we as a supplier dont want them to do.

As for home use i cant see the practicality of them, no left click to start with, like you said unless someone builds a program designed and workable for a touch screen then its a no starter.

Hi Fernandesl,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that Multi-touch feature is not working as expected in your G400s Laptop even after re-installing the Touchpad Driver in the computer, as per the image you have attached the Hardware is not getting enabled as the option is graded out, I suggest you to the Flee-Power in the computer, below are the steps to perform the same:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
Then check by disabling and then enabling the Touchpad pressing Fn+F6 together.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

I turned off hibernation but my computer still goes into "sleep" mode-- which really shuts down.  Instead of sleeping it shuts down. So I lose all windows and any work on my computer if I walk away for 2 min. I even changed settings to not sleep for over an hour, and it still "sleeps" after 2 min.

As you have mentioned that the system does not goes to sleep, does this issue occurs when the system is plugged in or it happens only when battery connected?

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
I presume that you have got preinstalled windows 7 System, Which you upgraded to Windows 8 now you have downgraded to windows 7. I have few questions & suggestion
How you downgraded to windows 7 using Recovery System or using windows OEM Disk
I am presuming that you have used the OEM disk, I would suggest you to use the OKR feature to restore to factory default by press F11 button during Post i.e.. When Lenovo Logo is displayed and follow onscreen instructions
 
Have you created a set of recovery media? If yes you can use these to recovery your system
 
 
Note: Before using above steps please ensure you have backed up your data
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hope This Helps
Cheers!!!

A walk around is to have your bios modded. However, there is possiblity that it will not work and render your unit useless. Another walk around that avoids the modding of the bios is to use a usb dual band dongle. This will make your connection available in 2.4 or 5 Ghz without problem.

Answer:Is it a good idea to leave the adapter plugged in ...

Yes, it won't run at Max performance likely without it plugged in or for long.You can set the battery charging as below which stops at 60% which extends its life we're told. When you need the max runtime just check the other radio button.

Hello Lenovo Community, I own a Lenovo IdeaPad P400 Touch laptop. I got it last year around October. At the start of 2014, this laptop has had a lot of hardrive issues. It would randomly crash and become unfixable. So I have sent over my laptop for repairs 3 times. Same issue. Anyway, I am not sure if this has anything to do with my charging issue. Real charging issue from the beginning:I recently received my laptop from repair last week. I booted and so forth and noticed it wasnt charging. I thought it was possibly my charger so I called the IdeaPad help desk. The specialist remoted into my computer and thought it was probably a battery firmware issue and decided to install it and run it, (link to driver http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-p-series-laptops/ideapad-p400-... The specialist ran the program and started the process. The program concluded that the new firmware was already installed and required no update. Eventhough the man was certain that it might have been the solution. Before I stopped speaking with the specialist, I plugged in my charger and noticed it was charging. I told the man but then it stopped charging as well as the power button light, power on light and battery level indicator started to flash together. I did not know what that meant, and neither did he. After a while it started to charge completely witchout it doing that weird thing. To this day, I can have the laptop charging for a good 5 m...

I'd like to extend the range of my laptop so that it can connect to my wireless router about 50 yards away. My workshop is in a metal shed away from the house and there are times that it would be nice to connect to the internet from there. I bought a D-Link N300 RangeBooster N USB Adapter at a garage sale and thought that might do the trick but the instructions say to delete all other wireless adapter software before installing which doesn't seem like a good idea to me since my machine, a Toshiba Satellite C75DB7230 is less than a year old. Is there a way to install this gadget and only activate it when I need it without fouling up the rest of the machine. I'm running Windows 10.

Answer:Installing second range booster wireless adapter - good or bad idea?

Hi Wolfie!

Open Network and Sharing Center. On the left, click change adapter settings. Right click on your built-in WiFi adapter and disable it. Then you should be good to go to install the USB WiFi adapter. That is how you can switch between the two.



Honestly, though, I doubt you get much better results from just another adapter with an internal antenna. I would suggest something like this:
Linksys RE6500 AC1200 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender
(cheaper from ebay and Amazon)

If your workshop has a window, set it in the window to get a better "view" to the main router. My main router with WiFi is in the basement of my house. On the second floor I have the RE6500 unit in my daughter's bedroom. It not only repeats the WiFi signal from the basement, but also gives me gigabit wired ethernet ports that her TV and XBOX plug into. I get perfect signal and speed from it despite that the router it repeats from is two floors down and my 55" flat screen TV is exactly right between them on the first floor.

I have both the 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz channels set with the same SSID and password on both the main router and repeater. All my WiFi devices just connect to the same WiFi network and roaming throughout the house they just pick up the strongest signal and attach to it. I have fantastic full speed connection all the way from my hot tub in the back yard to the farthest room on the second floor.

Hi Santiago. Can you specify the Idea Pad Yoga 11S full model number? If you have no power at all, no BIOS error,  no fan sound, no light... nada... when you try to turn on the machine that is not a good sign.  Maybe I will try if that model it has a "reset hole" on the bottom, but I'm not sure. Check the Lenovo Warranty Lookup and see if your machine is still under Warranty. I think that you will need to bring your computer to the Lenovo service center of you country. If it is not under warranty they will charge your for the parts and service. Regards

Hi all,Really in need of help, I have a U310 ( non touch version) that doesn't turn on.How it happened: I dropped it lightly and when I picked up the top right corner sort of seemed detached. I pressed it back and it worked fine that day. But the next day I tried to turn on and the battery LED blinked three times slowly in amber and the laptop wouldn't turn on.What I tried: checked the power adapter, and it reads 20V fine. Checked with aanother adapter at Fry's just to make sure with the same result.2. I opened and checked power connector, and 20V goes out of it too

Answer:U310 no power. Power adapter and connector seem to work fine.

My brother set his max cpu rate to 30% in power options. He says it saves power on his notebook and the batteries last longer. I told him thats a bad idea. But he dont listen to me.

There are various power plans in win 7 that can save batteries or increase performance. How does he "limit" his cpu to 30%

Hey guys, I am thinking about upgrading my Power Supply to something with a little more grunt due to only having a Corsair GS800 (which does fine for now) powering 2 GTX480's. I have used a watt meter from the wall an I know if a PSU is pulling say for eg 600w from the wall, then your psu is outputting around 450w-500w.

I would like something with headroom, so I was wondering if you guys know of a good quality power supply for around ?150 - ?200 max, got to be modular and 1000w minimum

Thanks people

PS: when using Furmark and OCCT an the same time, I pulled 675w from the wall (i know Furmark is unrealistic when compared to games ect but I just want too upgrade for future use)

Hello,My computer was still working fine a week ago. Disconnected all power for abt for a business trip and when I came back just couldn't start it up again. There is no booting, no beeping and screen is blank at all times so I couldn't tell what's wrong. The keyboard lights don't even come on! The unit does power itself up though, that meas fan is running, USB mouse has lights.But like I said, no beeping no booting and no keyboard, seems like the boot sequence doesn't start at all. I tested both the RAM and HDD on another computer and they work fine, any suggestions how to diagnose this problem?I never had a Motherboard give up on me, can this possibly be the motherboard failing completely?

Answer:Power up computer no boot, no beep, no idea?

What about the fans? If the power supply fan doesn't start, check the breaker in the panel box. There could be a switch on the power supply that you hit by accident too.How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

I have been moving quite a bit of it into a separate folder, without opening it. I intend to examine the headers, using file/properties, and record the originating ISP. In some cases I will also look at the content, using properties.

I'm having problems with Windows Live Messenger. Half the time it won't send Offline Messages and sometimes now even online ones bounce.

My system is spyware and virus free, I have the latest version installed and I've tried all the obvious fixes?uninstalling and reinstalling, rebooting etc. Nothing seems to solve it and various tech forums I have posted in haven't been any help at all.

I don't want to go back to the old style of MSN Messenger, if you do that the sounds don't work in it. It's a known problem and there is a fix but it's a hassle and if it doesn't work I may have messed up my system (nice one MSN!!!).

So it's down to this?.MSN tech support have said they can look into my account and see if anything is wrong. But that means taking my account offline, changing my password and then sending me a new one to a different e mail address. Lots of potential for making a complete mess out of it there and for me to lose my main e mail address, my contacts?the lot and permanently.

Has anyone ever done this with MSN? Did it work? In short, is it a good idea? Offline messaging I could live without but I just want the basics to work. I am not really confident of MSN's ability not to lock me out of my account permanently though. What if their e mail to my back up address saying "Here is your new password" goes astray?

Any advice guys?
 

Answer:Good idea? Bad Idea?

I have never used Windows Live Messenger so I am unsure of all its' capabilities, but if you can't solve your problem, to your satisfaction, you might try Trillian.

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.

See if the touhcscreen works there,
If Yes, I would suggest doing a factory Reset First Before jumping into a hardware Repair.

I never have the powersuply covered or anything like that. Every time I play any game it gets this hot. Is this normal? Something tells me it is not but I thought I would throw it out there.

Hi Redemption77
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would that be the same if you plug it with or without any power strip or different source outlet?
Warm feel should be normal but if its unusually warm then it could be alarming as it goes too hot to handle.
 
If so , this may likewise cause damage to the laptop and be best that you call in technical support for recommendation and service . You may likewise test a different adapter with the same electrical specification of your current one to isolate .

Hello, good evening, I have had an off-and-on issue with my trackpad not working. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. One moment it will work, the next, it doesn't. I have been bearing with it for months now (plugging in a usb mouse when it won't work for an extended period of time). Today, I stopped working during a timed test (I am a college student), and took 5 minutes to get it to work again. Valuable, precious time that could have meant the difference between an A and the D I ended up with (just kidding that low grade had to do with a refusal to study, but it could have been the cursor refusing to move!). Key points:I know this is not an issue with the function (fn) buttons. Tried that.I don't think it's drivers, because it works sometimes.The pad has been crooked since I got it (eg.: the left side is almost higher than the area around it, while the right side is sunken 2mm below the same area. The back appears to be even on both sides.) Any ideas?

Answer:Ideapad U310 touch touch pad not working

hi meagaletr,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
When the touchpad doesn't work, can you check if the touchpad system icon detects that you're still putting pressure on the pad as shown below:
 

 
If you get the same scenario then it's possible that the touchpad is malfunctioning (possibly grounded) and you may need to contact lenovo for service.

Then, the laptop dies / hard shuts down immediately when AC adapter is removed. Will not start on battery. Will not sustain for a moment on this battery.

Now when I try to turn it on, a yellow light on the front flashes three times. But it won't start. I can't hear the fan or head disk moving. It's completely silent.

Hi Norrime,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
Maybe two things you can try depending on the OS.
 

Remove the hard drive and see if it boots to the bios.
Reset RAM
Unplug battery from motherboard
Wait for battery to completely drain
Boot with HDMI monitor to see if anything displays (nothing would, so LCD panel should be good)

 
Let us know if it helps.

Okay, I'm not too sure what I did, and I don't know that much about computers, so please bear with me. Let me explain what I did first.

I have Windows ME and Office XP.

I have a Trojan(Jeem) and I went online and found out how to get rid of it. The message boards I went to (it wasn't these) told me to go into the system registry and delete certain keys. I had already turned the system restore off, so when I deleted these keys, it was in the off-mode. While I was in the system registry, I found other files of adware, and so I deleted those as well. Anyway, my computer froze, and I was forced to restart it, but when it restarted, it wouldn't go past the log-in stage. Everything before the log-in stage would work fine though. I would log-in and then the screen would go blank(my desktop) and stop thinking. When I would hit CTL-ALT-DLT, there would be nothing in the task list, and I couldn't get past the blank screen.

I have no idea if it was something I did, maybe I deleted a key I shouldn't have...I dunno. Can you help me get my computer working again? I had files on it that I would rather not loose...thanks if you can help. Sorry if this was in the wrong forum.

Answer:I have no idea what I did...

well well well. looks like we have a bit of a connundrum here. seems that you deleted vital registry keys with system resore off. Now, im not one to lecuture, but i feel that a short one is needed to prevent further mishaps. do not edit the registry unless you know exactly what you are doing. do not turn system restore off when editing the registry, if anything, turn it on. ok, now that that is over with. i know its a long shot, but do you remember what keys you deleted? probably not. The others may have other solutions, but it looks to me that you are going to have to reinstall windows.

So I had a computer. No big deal, right? It had Windows XP on it. I have an HP psc 1315 "all-in-one" printer. The install disk supported Windows XP. It seemed like my life was all in order...and it was. Until the terrible day when I decided I thought I deserved a new computer. So I got one. This new computer has Windows 7. Little did I know my little happy perfect world was about to crumble into the gigantic heaping pile of crap it really is.

This install disk for my HP psc 1315 "all-in-one" printer does not support Windows 7. So online I went to HP's website to see if they had some type of downloadable thing to get my printer working on this new computer. I stumbled upon this website...

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...t=374568#N1160

...and I was like "OH! The drivers! All I need to do is download these and I'm good to go!" However, I forgot I have never really known what I was doing when it comes to computers.

Well I clicked on the "Download" button to the "Driver (1)" option and after an hour of downloading, Windows says it can't open the file because it doesn't know what file type it is.

I have NO idea what I'm doing. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks so much for your time!

Answer:I Have No Idea What I'm Doing.

Hi and welcome to TSF it certainly seems to be the correct download would your issue be that your file associations are not set up,ie the file your trying to install is a .exe,or that you clicked the wrong file,did you have to open the driver package and select the install file

Okay, so first of all, I'm running Windows 7.

I must have downloaded some type of virus. I'd noticed that I'd been getting far more pop-ups than usual, when I usually had none.

So, I used Avast Free Anti-Virus. I'm assuming it got rid of the viruses it found, for I chose to delete them all.

However, the problem persisted. Just today, I realized that the computer was randomly shutting down. Figuring it must be spyware, malware, ect. I downloaded Ad-Aware and was running it in hopes of fixing the problem.

However, before it could ever complete it's scan, the computer shut down. I tried to turn it back on, and the tower made the usual noises is does when it turns on... but the monitor would not turn on. I tried again, and it gave me a blue screen. I tried one more time and it finally turned on.

I tried running Ad-Aware again, but it shut down before I could finish. After going through the same process as before, I got it to run again & I could hardly move the cursor. The monitor kept on flashing black.

Now, I've just recently been told it has video card problems -- and I accidentally left it on all night, when I wasn't supposed to.

Do I just need to let the computer rest for a while? Will this get rid of the random shutting down, or is that a bigger problem...?

Hi, I'm new to these forums and I'm on my roommates computer. For what it's worth, I run windows xp pro with service pack 3. This may not be an XP problem but rather a hardware problem. That the thing though, I don't really know.

Just a couple of hours ago I was reaching behind my computer and I bumped the power chord. It was loose at the time and this turned my computer off.

I turned it back on and it took me to my desktop background, but nothing will load past that, no shortcuts, no lower tool bar, nothing, just my wallpaper of Jackie Chan giving me the thumbs up. It stays at this screen for less than 20 seconds and it then returns me to the select user screen. First of all, I normally never see this screen since I am the only user. Second, when I do click on my profile it takes me back to my desktop, but only for a flash now. It then logs me right back out to the select user page again. The logging out sound plays right after the log in sound. You'd think it was all one sound the way it logs me out so fast. I tried logging back in repeatedly, but with the same results every time. I've restarted numerous times and the same thing happens every time. I can't get in with Safe Mode, or any mode for that matter. Did I ruin my hard drive thus messing up windows? Should I try a IDE ESP test? What should I do!?

Answer:I have no idea what to do.

Can you log in in safe mode? Your user profile may have gotten corrupted due to the sudden power loss. If so, log in as administrator in safe mode, create a new user, transfer all your files from the old user to the new user and get rid of the old user.

Well basicly our home computer (a Gateway 831GM with Windows XP home edition if it helps) was pretty messed up so I went ahead and completely reinstalled windows to see if that would help.

It worked like a dream for about a week then it started doing something weird. It will turn on and show the Windows XP loading screen then it will just go black for about 10 minutes before it reboots itself and goes through it again.

Safe mode does work (how else would I be typing this) and I have no idea what could be wrong. The ONLY thing I have done so far after windows xp was reinstalled was install the sound driver, and microsoft office 2003.

Can someone help me out?

Question: I have no idea...

Thankyou for reading this, it's kinda a long read, and I'm happy you have the patience for this.
I have been struggling with my computer for weeks now, just getting annoyed. I have a Dell Inspiron 531, the Athlon 64 version, and my computer is all screwed up i think. I have never had it connected to internet, and it isn't now. However when I try to connect it, it doesn't immediately connect (through cables), and when I try to make it connect, it doesn't work, I'm pretty sure it doesn't recognize the modem for whatever reason. That's 1 problem, but I get constant blue screens on programs I can run, that say something about Kernel errors or something like that, problem 2. I have many programs I can't even run because it says the environment option entered wasn't found, problem 3. A lot of my admin programs have shields next to them form which I understand is UAC, and when I click on any of shielded programs, it doesn't bring anything up, the little wheel thing spins than goes away, and nothing, nothing comes up and nothing happens, problem 4. On some programs I click on, a popup comes up saying something like the system couldn't find the (file) make sure it's typed correctly than try again. Trying again doesn't do anything, so I can't even get to those files, Problem 5. I wanted to try to restore to factory default, maybe to kill any viruses if I have any, but I can't because I can't run the program because of that environment error, Problem 6.

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Yes, you are infected.

Please follow the instructions in the READ & RUN ME FIRST link given futher down and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
If you have problems where no tools seem to run, please try following the steps given in the below and then continue on no matter what you find. You only need to try the TDSSserv steps if having problems getting scans in the Read & Run Me First. If TDSSserv is not found, just continue on with the READ & RUN ME.

If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going.
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not.

After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:
If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Question: I've had an idea!

I've come up with an idea, to make port replicators for a pc.

There are already plenty about for laptops but the idea i had was to make it for a pc so that it means no more crawling around on the floor to plug your devices into the back of your pc.

I'm thinking along the lines of making it with things like ps2 ports, usb ports, and audio ports.

On the audio side, i was thinking of a simple switch so that you can leave a headset plugged in and just throw the switch between headphone and speakers.

The whole idea of this device is to make it simple and cheap with no electronics inside it, just sockets wired to plugs to go into the back of the pc. I think it could appeal to the disabled, injured (like my bad back) and the downright lazy.


Just wondered if i could get some feedback, suggestions, and ideas from people here on TechSpot. Waddya recon??

Question: Any idea?

Hi , after a hard rest n re installing software via WDRT the biggest problem I have now is battery. Other than the fact that it is decreasing rapidly, I also have battery percentage issues. First of them is the long 100% -- when my phone is charged at 100%, I don't unplug it immediately or it will drain fast. So if I wait for 30 mins, that usually helps a little. After unplugging, it stays at 100% for like 35-40 minutes, moderate to heavy use. That's longer than other percentage, because once it goes down to 99%, it will fall down easily to 98%...97%...96%. Like that. Usually it takes around 40 minutes to have 10% of the battery bar down, moderate use.
Next, when restarting our soft resetting, my battery oddly jumps down. For example I have 60% and I restarted, it goes down to 52% which totally wastes like the 8% of it.

I uninstalled trend micro internet security pro then installed zone alarm security suite. Then installed IE8. for vista everything went crazy on my computer. I could not find the uninstall for IE8 so I did a system restore, this solved my problem with the uninstall but it also wiped out my zone alarm install. So I reinstalled zone alarm, I then got a error message that said Zone alarm found another antivirus program that can't run with zonealarm so I went back to uninstall trend micro again and it keeps going half way through the uninstall then it stops and does a roll back. How do I uninstall this program?

IE8 would be listed under Windows Updates. Uninstall the IE8 update and your previous version of IE should replace it.

I recently subscribed to cable internet which involved a cable modem. When the technician came to install it, he informed me that my floppy drive wasnt working. He told me he couldnt install the ethernet card til that was fixed, but we could do a temporary usb port til the floppy was fixed. Well, neglecting to tell me that this could cause problems, I began getting fatal exception errors everywhere. I had the floppy fixed, installed the ethernet card and had to reinstall windows 98.
Did that several times thinking that was my problem, but I keep getting things like these files are missing---vredir.vxd
dfs.vxd

and msnp32.dll which says it is Microsoft networking.
then a screen pops up stating it is updating my plug and play hardware. So it comes up saying that windows 98 cant find cirrusmm.dll (which I believe is my monitor) and ksuser.dll (no idea)
