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.

Very strange, but I have noticed that the wirelss connection speed is much, much faste when the laptop is not plugged in to a power outlet.  When it is, it slows way, way down.  Any suggestions?

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

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?

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

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.

Thanks.

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.

I believe what your are refering to is a wireless receiver.  They make any number of them from USB receivers to the ones that install into your expansion slots.  I installed mine into where the modem was.  Open the case (do not have it plugged in.)  pPull ouot modem card.  And i just put in my old wirelss card. It's a 5 year old Belkin card but gets the job done.  If your looking for a card i recomend tigerdirect.com or newegg.com

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

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.

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)

Answer:Power supply idea input please

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.

is this a good idea? i heard it can reduce the possibility of an electrical surge that would badly affect the equipment? and of course it would reduce power consumption.

I have determined to learn something about spam and spammers. My ISP catches quite a bit of it and Norton Catches a lot, but some still finds its way to the inbox. 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.

My incoming e-mail is scanned by Norton for viruses, but nothing is 100 per cent foolproof.

Am I being stupid and should I just delete all the spam, or am I being reasonably prudent?

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.

Have you tried booting the system in Recovery Mode (One Key Recovery), You're not going to Recover the system since your only going to check the touchscreen in that mode "Outside Windows"
 
See if the touhcscreen works there,
If Yes, I would suggest doing a factory Reset First Before jumping into a hardware Repair.
If No, Then I think you're correct with the digitizer.

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. Also, if the power suply is a problem, are there 3rd party power adapters that would be better? thanks

Answer:Y700 Touch Power Adapter Overheating

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.

Ok, I know of someone that doesn't want there children to be able to use the computer what so ever after a certain time, but she needs to use it after there time is set. Now I have heard of some services when being used on a network that can force certain users to log off. Is there a way I can force a user to log off at a given time then allow them on at another time??? Or will I end up having to direct her to some sort of software?

Answer:need an idea...

If it is XP it will have to be software based. Only VIsta has the Parental controls which allow the Admin to prevent users from using the PC at any given time. But there is software like this that is available.

Question: An Idea!!!!!!!!!

I have an idea. Many new games require a pixel shader that I and probably many more people don't have. Why couldn't the game companies release a patch that makes a game WORSE and make it not require a pixel shader. I mean I'm not all that crazy about graphics, gameplay is more important to me. I want to play a game not admire it. Take Oblivion for example, that game requires pixel shader support, and my mx 440 doesn't support shaders period. I tried to emulate with 3D analyzer and i actually got in the game and i started a new game but at the part where you have to make a face, there was no face, and when the game started in the prison place, i was able to hear myself moving and punching the air. i was also able to see the stats at the bottom and the cursor, maybe because those dont use pixel shading. But the screen itself was just white. It was like i was playing the game blind. Anyway, Oblivion came with a construction set just like Morrowind( the last elder scrolls), with which you can make mods. I don't know how to make mods, but many others do. Couldn't anyone make a mod that takes of shaders so people who can't afford new computers could play a nice game like Oblivion.

Question: No Idea

Never had had a pop for my anti virus telling me I had anything. Though yesterday, the online game I play emailed me and shut down my character due to it being compromised. The last time my Avira said I had something trying to attack to my pc was probably a year ago. I ran the first 3 scans and going to post those logs.

Rootapeal stalled overnight so I quit it after it was running for almost 18 hours, it was on the same thing from almost 10 hours ago as I just woke up.

So if you want I'll run the scan from root and mgtool later if needed.

Malware and Spyware showed nothing so no idea what is wrong. Combo said in the log that it already deleted a couple things so maybe in the logs you all can help.

Thanks for any help.

Question: No idea

I was brought a box last night, a friend of my dad's friend needed help with their old computer. I agreed. The computer is an old Dell Dimension 4700. Pentium 4 CPU, 508MB RAM running Windows XP, but I believe the issue is hardware related.
I finished cleaning the viruses from the hard drive and such and shutdown the system, I then opened the box to clean out dust buildup which was very heavy. keep in mind the CPU has no fan attached to the heatsink. The fan is on the back of the computer and sucks air in from the back, a green plastic "tunnel" directs the air to the heatsink for cooling. I removed the fan with the "tunnel" and used compressed air to blow out the dust. I then used a vacuum cleaner with the small nozzle attachment to suck the dust out of the area the CPU was at. I then re-attach the fan to the back and plug it back in to it's spot on the motherboard.
I then bring the box into my room, plug in the power cable and VGA cable and press the power button. Now it powers on with all the fans at full speed, does 6 long beeps and then idles. Nothing comes up on the screen. Any idea what the heck happened?

EDIT:
Beep sequence is 1-3-2

EDIT 2:
Upon further Google-ing, I found the beep sequence was a RAM seating issue, which puzzles me due to the reason I never touched the RAM.

Answer:No idea

that post sequence is ram related. try reseating the ram.

Remove all the memory modules, then install only one module in slot 1, then see if the system boots and if the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module.

Does not boot, move the module to slot 2 and again see if the system boots, no boot, try the module in slot 3, no boot, try installing in slot 4.

Still does not boot, then remove the first module and using the second one, repeat the sequence described above.

Still no boot, try installing any remaining modules, one at a time, using the above procedure.

Continue until you have identified a faulty module [or slot] or reinstalled all modules without error.

Still does not boot, buy new compatible memory module/s and try them.

This is my first post here, hopefully I can get my problem figured out so here is the story.

Yesterday I brought my computer out of hibernation, when it was booting windows it went to a black screen that says,

Windows Failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cuase.

Status: 0xc000000F
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

So I tried using a win 7 repair disc when booting to see if that could help solve the problem. However, the system repair disk is not seeing the installation of windows that was on my C: SSD drive, the only one that comes up is the E: drive (my cd drive). My other drive that I have on my computer is a regular hard drive designated as D:

So I began looking around on the drives with the explorer program that I could use on the repair disk and I noticed that somehow, the SSD is now designated as D:, and the regular HDD is now designated as C:....anyone know what happened? Also, the SSD is showing that it is almost completely unused now......I have no idea why because that is where win 7 was installed and I had several other things installed on it as well.

I am pretty frustrated here, can anyone help me out? If there is more info you need I will be glad to post it.

Thanks

Answer:No Idea what to do....

Do you know which drive the boot loader configuration was loaded on?
For example if you only had the SSD installed at the time you loaded windows then it will be where the boot configuration files were/are try disconnecting the platter drive and see what's found on the SSD.

The night before I went to install IMVU to talk to an old friend and the screen completely froze. I shut it down and switched it back one minute later and uninstalled IMVU. Then my laptop wouldn't let me onto the internet and I found there was another internet icon saying it was a 64-bit and it worked. I switched those out then I couldn't get onto any multiplayer games or online multiplayer sites. I reset the internet and it didn't help, I tried to recover everything. After my laptop went to recover everything it went to restart itself but the screen went black before the log in page showed up.

please help if you can!

Thanks
 

Answer:no idea please help

In the future please do not post HJT logs unless they are requested. You have multiple problems that need to be fixed. This will take a few iterations.

First you must disable Spybot's Teatimer because it can get in the way of our cleanup process.

To disable TeaTimer, run Spybot and click Mode and select Advanced Mode. Then click Tools and select Resident. Now in the right window pane, uncheck TeaTimer.
Also while this is open, in the left column now select IE Tweaks and then in the right pane make sure all the Miscellaneous locks are unchecked.
Now quit Spybot!

Please download: HSFix.zip
Extract the files from the ZIP File to a folder that you can find (preferably in its own folder - like c:\HSFix). Now boot to Safe Mode open the HSFix Tool folder and doubleClick hsfix.bat and let it run. It will produce a log here - C:\hslog.txt

Now reboot in normal mode and post that hslog.txt file here as an attachment.
After doing the above move on to the next message.

Answer:I have no Idea what I have

Welcome to MajorGeeks.com, please follow the steps below:

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support

Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.




Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.Click to expand...

After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below link to properly use HijackThis:

Downloading, Installing, and Running HijackThis

Make sure you also rename HijackThis.exe as suggested in the procedures. Use analyse.exe for the new name. This is very important due to some new infections going around.

When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:

CounterSpy
AVG Antispyware Log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
Bitdefender - from step 6
Panda Scan - from step 6
runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
HijackThis



NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!Click to expand...

Answer:No idea what it is !!!!

Here are the steps to do a system restore using the recovery console:



1. Boot the Recovery Console from the Windows XP installation CD.
2. When you're at the Recovery Console command prompt, change into the root directory of the system drive with the cd command (i.e., cd \).

3. Change into the System Volume Information directory by typing cd system~1 on most machines, or cd "System Volume Information."

(The filenames with ~1 are generated by default to provide backwards compatibility with programs that only recognize 8.3-format filenames. It's possible to disable 8.3 filename generation on NTFS volumes to gain some speed, but the speed gained by doing this is generally pretty small and it can have the unintended consequence of making it impossible to use 8.3 filenames in contexts like this. If you can't use 8.3 filenames to navigate, 8.3 name generation might be disabled. See Microsoft's support document called How to Disable the 8.3 Name Creation on NTFS Partitions.
4. The System Volume Information directory contains a folder name _restore followed by a GUID in curly braces. Change into it by typing cd _resto~1; if that doesn't work you'll have to type cd "_restore{GUID_STRING}", with the full GUID string in place of GUID_STRING.

5. In the _restore directory are a group of subdirectories starting with the letters RP and followed by a number. These are the different restore points available for that volume.

You have a SiS integrated video card - thats likely the problem. SiS cards are never the best and being integrated cannot help your situation. You will most likely need to purchase an AGP based NVidia or Ati video to the game run smoothly. To be honest your entire computer is not designed to run any modern games.

What game are you having trouble playing?

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:

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.

Basically, last night I finished my new buiild, 970 BE 3.5 Quad Core (stock heatsink, no overclocking), 4GB DDR3 RIpjaw series RAM, Asrock 890FX Deluxe 4 motherboard, Radeon HD 4850, All installed in an Antec DF-85, wth an Antec certified 550w PSU.

Ok, so I put everything together, check temps, beautiful, running at 30-ish idle, everything seems smooth. I set up the memory timings to 9-9-9-24 and speed to 1600 as the memory suggests. Everything working Fine.

I put in my windows 7 ultimate 64 bit edition CD, format my old 40GB (ATA-100) HDD, (I'm still waiting on my SSD/1TB WD) But just to test my current components, I decide to install everything on that drive.

I get an error when Expanding windows files, I tried 3 different CD's , same error everytime. I do some research online, and I try one of the fixes. I take out one of the 2GB memory module. It works just FINE. Everything is installed, I install the drivers, everything running smoothly. ODDLY though, when I run everest, and system info, my MOTHERBOARD is shown as UNKNWON ( wtf right ? ).

So then I decide to power off, and stick the other ram module inside to see if it was faulty. I boot up, and get Error with everything. get errors installing certain files, i get errors launching chrome, things keep shutting down.

The RAM is bad, I believed. I turned everything off and left memtest running overnight for 14 hours. 0 Errors, 8 Passes.

WTF ? I figured if it was the motherboard memory slot, i would get erro... Read more

My internet keeps just closing down on its own. I have no idea why most of the time there is no box that comes up or anything. Some times we get the box that says blah blah has an error and needs to close down, then really fast everything closes out. It is starting to get to me, and I have online classes where if that were to happen when I was taking a test, well I would be in a world of pain. I hope some one can help. Here is the Hijack log, I hope that helps.

Unfortunately, Win 10 doesn't come in a live version like many Linux distros do. There's only the ISO file to burn to DVD and then install on your hard drive. What I did (and you can do too) is made a backup image of my "C" drive then wiped the drive before installing Win 10. When I was done "playing" with Win 10, I wiped the drive again and restored the drive from the backup image.
