Ideapad S205 doesn't support booting from SDHC-Card

Question: Ideapad S205 doesn't support booting from SDHC-Card

Hello, I have the Ideapad S205 and I cannot boot from a SDHC-Card (Ubuntu Linux) with the internal cardreader. With an external card reader I can boot from the SDHC-Card. Is there any solution or maybe a BIOS-Upgrade? Thanks Simon

Preferred Solution: Ideapad S205 doesn't support booting from SDHC-Card

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: Ideapad S205 doesn't support booting from SDHC-Card

when you see lenovo logo, press f12 to set bios order.also, check for bios booting option. if there's not option, i don't think s205 supports booting from sdhc, but apparently it supports usb boot.

Lenovo staff Mr Tam and Mr Leung of Hong Kong Lenovo Support Centre (telephone number 25163919) stated that Ideapad S205 cannot read SDHC cards.  They said that, according to the user guide, S205 can only read old models of SD cards.  Please confirm whether it is true or not.

Hello, all the time i had Windows 7 64Bit working properly, cince i have tried to install Ubuntu 11.04 i am not able to boot from HDD. Windows 7 and Ubuntu installations are able to find and partition the HDD, XP installation can't find HDD. I think there is no HDD issue, i can not enter BIOS by pressing F2 Key, the BIOS is trying to boot by 3 times and stops at the menu where you can shoose the boot source. So what is the problem of the bios? Thanks and sorry for my bad english

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad S205 - BIOS access via F2 doesn't work

check if there is bios update and/or try this trick:remove the battery, un-plug the ac adapter, press power button for 30-40 seconds, replace the battery and set default settings for bios.

Answer:Does Equium M70 support 4GB or 8GB SDHC card

Hi!

The Equium M70 supports only SD cards up to 1GB so SDHC cards will not work.

You can find this information in the user manual. I have checked it and so I know this.
If you don?t have the user manual you can download it on the Toshiba website.

W520Win 7When I put my smart card into the reader and open My Computer, the card isn't shown.  I see C: and D: but no smart card.  I noticed that this only seems to happen after I have had the computer go to sleep in Maximum Battery Life mode. Another annoyance:  I thought I would just hit the "refresh" button on My Computer.  Big mistake.  The little green bar just keeps loading and getting slowly bigger for like 30 minutes until I finally get disgusted and restart the computer.  Then it can see the smart card...  Any ideas?

Answer:SDHC reader doesn't see the card.

You should update the Smart card reader driver and BIOS the check if the issue gets resolved.
 
Smart Card reader driver can be download from the mentioned below web link.

If the issue continues the change the battery mode from Maximum Life

I hope that someone has the answer to this - according to the manual the notebook (brick!) supports SD / SD-IO / MiniSD / Memory Stick / Memory Stick Pro / xD / MMC cards but no specific support for SDHC cards is mentioned. Does anyone know the answer to this or point me in the right direction i.e. are there tools to test for this?

Ideally I do not want to buy a SDHC card only to find out that it does not work with the notebook.

Answer:Does the Qosmio G30-10B support Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) SD Card

Hi there,

your machine supports SDHC cards up to 4GB. So, feel free to buy an SDHC card and use it in your machine. It will work.

Hi,

My satelite A100 does not support my sandisk 4 GB SDHC card.
"normal" SD cards are not a problem with the internal card reader, and there are no problems with the sandisk 4 GB SDHC card using a external card reader.

is there a software solution?

regrads,
Itock

Answer:My Satellite A100 does not support SDHC cards with the internal card reader

I do not have time to read users manuals for your notebook model but all supported cards can be listed there. I suppose SDHC is not listed and not supported.

I do not know what you mean with software solution but, as far as I know, update for multimedia card reader is not available.

I've got a new W700.  The card reader recognizes a 2G SD card I have, but does not recognize a 4G Kingston SDHC card that works fine in my T61p and in a Nikon D40.  I'm guessing a driver problem, but both Hardware Manager's driver search and Thinkvantage System Update think I have the latest.  I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. The card carries the SDHC logo, so I'd presume it's not some funny non-HC > 2G variant.  Thanx

Answer:W700 doesn't recognize Kingston 4G SDHC card.

My IdeaPad U160 just stopped working from one day to the other. Nothing special happened, I turned it off one day and in the morning there was no energy in the computer. I took the battery off and checked if the charger was working, but everything was fine. I followed the instructions that I found here on the Lenovo website to press the switch for some seconds without charger or battery and nothing happened. I did that more than 10 times. So finally now after almost one week I contacted the support center in Germany, since there is no other way of contacting Lenovo when you have an IdeaPad. Some very missinformed person answered the phone and was of no help since he didn't tell me how to proceed with repairing the computer. He just told me that I should press the switch again for 20sec and wait for 30min, even though I told him that I had already done that. Note that my computer is still in the warranty period, but actually not for long anymore. So now I want to know how do I proceed with the warranty service in Germany? Who can I contact? 

Answer:IdeaPad U160 doesn't turn on, support doesn't work either

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

Answer:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I got an 8gb micro sdHC card filled up using the adapter, with music, which plays fine.

Before I received this cheap us>microSD adapter I asked the seller if it read HC cards. They said no. It's just a cheap chinese adapter on ebay so there isn't much info on it at all. It's write up didn't say anything about HC capabilities.

Like I mentioned, I was able to use it to load up an 8gb sdHC card.

Does this mean that it will probably also work with a 32gb sdHC card? Is there a size limit that the 8gb card didn't exceed?

If yes, I'd like to buy more now because I don't think these will hold up to much use.

Thanks
 

Answer:Can My Usb>microsd Adapter Read Sdhc If It Fills An 8gb Sdhc Card? Seller Says It Won't.

I found the same item elsewhere on ebay which mentions that it recognizes up to 32gb, which is what I needed.

So....I suppose there are quite a few adapters out there labelled only SD but will in fact read up to at least 32 SDHC cards.

I think going over 32gb cards might require additional capabilities.

For Christmas, I received a 16gig flash drive. My first thought was to put Linux on it so I could use it on my laptop. My laptop's hard drive is pretty small, and when I'm considering purchasing a new one in less then a year's time frame, I figured a flash drive would be much more beneficial then a new hard drive in the long run.

Anyways, I quickly found out that neither of my two computers support USB booting. Since then, my flash drive has been sitting idling on my desk, using it a few times to transfer files. Well, today, when I was trying to see what KDE 4 looks lie on Mandriva, I stumbled upon the Mandriva Flash 2009. I found this in the description:

How do I boot Mandriva Flash if my computer can not boot from USB?

Mandriva Flash provides you a bootables CD. A small bootable CD-ROM image is also present on the shared partition of the Mandriva Flash USB key. It is only 3MB, so it can be burnt on a credit-card sized CD-ROM. You can then make your computer boot on this CD-ROM (and make sure your Mandriva Flash USB key is plugged), it will automatically use the Mandriva Flash USB key. Once Mandriva Flash is booted, you can eject the CD-ROM.Click to expand...

Sounds exactly what I need. I almost purchased it, until I saw the steep price of $59.90, where as I only paid $20.00 for my flash drive that is twice the size.

However, I was wondering, what is exactly on this CD, and is there one freely out there that can be used for other distro's?

Where did you buy that 8GB SD Card? Are you sure it's genuine?

If you got it from eBay or similar, it may be a fake SD Card that is physically 1GB but reformatted and re-badged as 8GB.

Ok so I've just recieved 2x 4GB SODIMM DDR3 1333Mhz (204pin) from Amazon, (The specs I double checked by reading the Lenovo forum and the manual before purchasing.

So I take my new RAM out and put the old standard 2gb stick in once again and all is working 100%.I can assure that the RAM was correctly inserted into the slot(s), and that by testing my new RAM individually that they're not likely damaged.

I really want the X120e, but as it is not available here I am looking at alternatives. What will I lose as compared to the "pro" model if I go for the S205, other than the trackpoint?(I know about the Edge 11 but I do not trust it would have good battery life.) I prefer the classic style of the X120e but if the build quality is equivalent I have no problem with the S205 style. Does the S205 have a better screen? Difficult to compare matte and glossy, but I don't see complaints about the display in the S series forum. The X120e looks smaller, though the 6-cell battery protrudes quite a lot. How does the difference in size feel in person?

Answer:Cannot get a X120e, should I pick a Ideapad S205 instead?

Well, it's got a glossy screen. The X120e has a matte one.The keyboard on the S205 looks to be the same one as the X120e has- they both have 6 rows, they both are chiclet keyboards, but one doesn't have a TrackPoint and they have different lettering.I think the S205 and X120e actually are functionally identical: the S205 wasn't going to originally be available in the US while the X120 wasn't going to be for sale in the UK.I'm using a T510 right now: the 9-cell battery, though it sticks out, isn't too much of a problem. To tell you the truth, though, I would be hurting for battery were it a 6-cell.

Good day all, I recently had a problem with my laptop. When I bought it 5 months ago everything was perfect, but now I am having a few problems. First I installed windows 7 (32bit version) and downloaded all drivers from the official Lenovo page and all was ok. But from a few weeks the laptop just glitches all the time. When I want to watch a movie , play some music or even play some old game (like Heroes 3 for instance) it just glitches and lags all the time. It glitches even on normal windows operations like opening folders or opening some program. It glitches during normal work of the programs (when I type in Skype it freezes and then I wait for at least 15 seconds before the text appears). I did some test - windows memory test. I scanned the hard disk for errors or bad sectors - everything is working fine. Before I hade some flickering lines on the screen but when I reinstalled the video driver they disappeared. Now I installed windows xp , but the problems remains. So I just want to ask, if anyone have same problem or simmilar to this one because I cannot find where the problem is.All ideas would be appreciated. Regards!

Your hard drive may be going bad, download a utility called speedfan, there is a tool within it that allows you to check the S.M.A.R.T. statues of your hard drive.

Hello dear Lenovo fans!I have an old netwbook Lenovo Ideapad S205. I want to put inside a new SSD as a system drive and use the existing hard drive only for storage. I saw on the mainboard that below the wifi module installed in a mini pci-e port there is placed an extra spot for soldering of an additional msata or mini pci-e slot. The bigest questin is - If I solder an msata port there and install an msata SSD - Is it going to work? Does anybody have tried this at all?I called in Lenovo Bulagra and they didn't give me a concrete answer ?!?!Please comment this issue!

Just got S205 and see that display  has problem with flickering.It is specially visible on grey, light-blue and similar colors. It is not so long on sale, most sold in Germany. And i see at german forums that many people have same problem. Non solution. - It is not RAM (tested with other, and changing places)- It is not OS. (tested with Win7 and Knoppix boot  DVD - Linux, slightly less flickering, but still visible)- It is not AMD drivers. Tested all posible. And all advices for Catalyst settings, non helped. (Linux has same problem !)- It is not temperature. I believe simply it is shipped with too cheap LCD display.  So shame. I love perfomance and keyboard. Keyboard is one of the best i saw in netbooks. And you can load many heavy apps and use it for a long time. And S205 is just slightly warm. You canīt believe that netbook is so cold. No high temperatures. So, my question.What to do ? If i return it back it is 80% chance they will just put same cheap LCD display ? Some advices please ? Have to say that this flickering is not just cosmetic problem. It has great impact at health.If i use netbook for say 2-3 hours and turn my head away, i see waves. Almost as halucinacions. So it is potentially danger to peopleīs eyes and vision.

I believe the WAN card in the X1 Carbon is the Ericsson H5321gw - from what I can tell that card only supports 3G (see http://www.techship.se/products/ericsson-h5321gw-101/).

Hi. I have a new Dell 4550 that worked perfectly when I got it a couple months ago. Since then, something happened to make the sound card (SoundMAX Digital Audio) not support .wav files. It plays .mpeg and .mp3 just fine, but no system sounds or AOL sounds. Another error message is that it doesn't support Hardware Buffering, only Software buffering. I've tried reverting from DirectX 9.0 back to 8.1, didn't work. Tried reinstalling drivers, everything I could think of. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I can't seem to work out whether it does or not.  It would seem that the CPU (E-450) does not support dual channel but I'm not sure whether this is what decides whether it is supported.  Also if it does support dual channel memory would this have to be exactly the same brand etc or could I stick in another stick at the same speed and it would work? Thanks.

Answer:Does S205 support dual channel memory?

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
As per the data sheet of S205  it supports dual channel
 
DDR3-1066MHz (Support Dual Channel)
SODIMM socket x 2 (max 4GB per slot)
 
It is always recommended to use same speed memory to have less issue related to memory like hanging , BSOD  etc..

Hi there, I purchased my S205 two months ago, its recently started poping up a window occasionally when the computer is turned on saying that the hard disk needs to be replaced, the code accompanying this is WDC WD32 00BPVT-24ZEST0 SATA. It also says I need to back up my files but when I try to do this it says there is not enough space. The computer is just used for going online, so has no major files such as songs or photos stored on it. Is this a serious problem? I am currently in Australia and rang tech support here but they say they dont support this model here. I am also unable to ring the number at home in Ireland as the call wont go through. What can I do?? Sorry for the essay...

Answer:IdeaPad S205 Hard Disk Problem

first of all, use external hard disc or usb disk to back-up your datas.secondly, your hdd may be about to die. it'd be better to call support line.also, could be just sector issue. try to perform clean windows installation by pressing one key recover button and/or use disk scan to scan your disk.note : i'll try to check the support line issue, will give you the numbers if they have new one.

HiI have asked Lenovo customer service/tech support this question many times, each to give me 1066mhz as the answer. What is the maximum SPEED for the RAM/Memory that the S205 with AMD Fusion E450 Processor can use?I understand 8G (2 slots of 4G) is the maximum ram capacity. But what is the maximum ram speed? I thought that the maximum allowance is 1066mhz due to the website, despite the AMD website saying that the E450 can handle 1333mhz. Obviously, I want to max out my RAM. I went to the Kingston website and used the option to locate specific RAM for this unit and it resulted in 1066mhz 2X4G Sticks. So I bought it and just got it. I just feel like coming on here and seeing if anyone actually KNOWS for a fact what the maximum speed capacity (or anything else I should be aware of aside from Gig capacity) that the S205 with AMD Fusion E450 can take. EDIT:Upon further research, I have found the following.1) According to Crucial tech support, the RAM frequency/speed is controlled by the CPU Processor only. And as pointed out by him, the AMD 300 and 350 have a maximum control speed for RAM of 1066mhz. However the E450 has an "integrated DDR3 memory controller (up to 1333MHz)" as can be seen from ( http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/system_data/s205_tech_specs.pdf ). Also note that right below it, it goes on to state that the maximum speed for RAM is 1066mhz. So this further confuses the issue. It seems to me that when they list... Read more

Answer:Ideapad S205 Memory/RAM: Maximum Speed?

You can almost always use faster RAM, but that doesn't mean that the system will take advantage of its full potential. I have an S205, with the E350 CPU.  It came with 3GB RAM (2+1), and the supplied RAM was 1333 MHz. I upgraded the RAM to 6GB, by substituting a 4GB module for the 1 GB module,  I used generic Kingston 1333 (which, at the time, was cheaper than buying 1066). So, now all of my RAM is 1333 MHz, but I assume that the CPU is running it at 1066.

According to the s205's datasheet it can last approximately 5 hours, which seems strange to me, because AMD Fusion is pretty power-efficient and other E350-powered devices boast up to 8 hours on one charge with the same battery capacity. I do like this laptop's design and features, but battery life is very important to me, so could please s205 owners describe  battery life and usage conditions of their laptops?

Answer:How good is IdeaPad s205 battery life?

it depends on performance and/or power management. if you select " super energy saver" it's even possible more than 6 hours.

Hi
 
I've swapped the HD on an ideapad S205. I re-imaged it on to the new bigger drive.
 
I now have the following partitions:
1. 200MB (Active Boot) - Primary
2. C: 260GB (system) - Primary
3. D: Lenovo 30GB - Logical
4. OEM 16GB - Primary 
5. Unalloacted 160GB
 
I cannot add this unallocated space to the C drive the tools I've tried allow C & D to take each other's space but not the unallocated space.
 
The next best is to create a new partition - trying that gives "too many mbrs" - too many partitions on disk.
 
What can I do in this case to make use of the extra space the new HD has given me.

Hello, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad S205, and have run into some trouble. The charger recently stopped working properly, and I bought a replacement - the original charger has an output of 20V, whereas the replacement has an output of 19V. However, I wouldn't think this would make a difference. This said, when I plugged in the new charger, it said "plugged in, not charging". I took the battery out, and put it back in again, as I have had a similar trouble before, and doing this fixed it. The system stayed running while the battery was out, and I've noticed the battery percentage is not going down while this replacement is plugged in. Also, the original now seems to do the same - "plugged in, not charging". Can anyone offer any assistance?

Hi there,

as I know it doesn?t support SDHC. But I don?t know it for sure, you have to try it by yourself.
If it is not working then, you will have to use a external drive which compatible to SDHC because the SD-card standard is pretty new.

But when it restarts, instead of going to recovery system, Windows 7 just starts up again like i just restarted the netbook. I've also tried the Recovery button in the top right corner of keyboard. Shut down the netbook as described in the guide and pressed the button. Netbook starts up and just goes straight into Windows 7. Whats going on here? I have checked the partitions and the recovery partition is there and is hidden (checked with EASEUS Partition Master). I've read here that OneKey fails if its not hidden. But in my case it is NOT visible in My Computer. I've also tried re-installing OneKey Recovery program and nothing changed. Here is the PTEDIT32 image of my partitions, so you can check if everything is in order as far as partitions are concerned. I'm using:Lenovo IdeaPad S205E-4504GB RAM500GB 5400RPM HDD (WD Scorpio Blue)Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (came preinstalled with it) Please help as i'm now unable to restore my netbook to factory default!





Lenovo IdeaPad S205 / E-450 / 4GB RAM / 500GB / Win7 Home Premium 64bit

Answer:OneKey Recovery just restarts the Windows 7 (IdeaPad S205)

Hello, Could you please explain what you mean by " fiddling a lot with it" and please be specific. Also, I'm not familiar with the program you are using but does that picture indicate that there are 4 partitions and, if so, did you create one during your fiddling?

Hello, First, thanks for taking the time to help me.  My issue is this: Normal windows 10 function for screen rotation is working great. I can use the accelerometer's autorotation feature or use Ctrl + Alt + Arrows to change the orientation of the screen. However, I would like to run a video game in tablet mode with the screen oriented a certain way, but it seems like when the video card is the display device (3d graphics are running), only one orientation is possible. If I try using Ctrl + Alt + Arrows, the screen attempts to flip but I'm brought back to the desktop, and the display adapter flickers repeatedly, as if it's attempting to make the switch but is unable to finish. Some googling suggests that the video card's ability to flip the screen is typically disabled by laptop manufacturers. Does anyone know why, and more importantly, if I can enable it? Much appreciated and happy new year!

Answer:Video card doesn't support screen rotation?

Sorry, this is rude, but I am bumping myself!

The apps get a blank icon and doesn't work after some days of installing........Especially when i restart my phone................Please help me........

Answer:The apps installed on my SD card doesn't support............What may be the reason?

Is it a class 4 SD card? Usually u run into such trolubles when using a slow SD card. Class 10 is highly recommended if u have a lot of apps in SD card.
Also while restarting apps do tend to take a bit of time to be prepared but its never over 5 mins.

Yesterday I got battlefield 2 and installed it. It was working fine until I got to the start menu. Then this thing popped up and said my graphics card was going to reset its resolution and needed to restart the computer. So I said yes then restarted the game and got back to the menu but it did the same thing so I went online and looked up the requirements for a BF2 graphics card. It said it could take ATI radeon 8600. So I'm thinking wait I have ATI 9250 and thats higher soooooooooooo. I NEED HELP PLEASE.
 

Answer:Battlefield 2 doesn't support a higher graphics card need help!!

Go to BF2 website and make sure you have the latest patch installed for that stupid game. By stupid I mean "nothing but technical problems for everyone that buys it". Your 9250 is supported. Make sure you have the latest drivers for the 9250 from the ATI website and the latest mobo chipset drivers. Also you'll need Direct 9.0c installed (prob on the installation disk).

Good luck

Hello, I have a tiny problem.I just bought an Ideapad 500 500-15isk x86 (32) bit. I also have Windows 10 Pro installed. The only problem I encountered so far is after I downloaded the driver from Lenovo site and tried to install it. I get this > http://i.imgur.com/ZbK1EAd.pngSo I navigate to to the other folders like AVC and the rest and try to run the install, but everytime I click on the set-up, I get that error from all the set-ups in the other folders except Intel's, here's the error >http://i.imgur.com/jPZd8k1.pngSo I resort to Intel and install, and some how it does install. And after restarting the Lap and try to open the Camera, I get this on the Main Camera > http://i.imgur.com/ErDYUY5.jpgThe Front Camera is workin perfectly fine. I just want to know how to fix the Main Camera and how can I try the 3D Camera since I need it for the 3D for the projects I work on IRL.

Long story short i have an Aspire One ZG5 with no SSD ribbon. Someone ripped out the ribbon and in the process damaged the connectors on both drive and motherboard. Any attempts to restore them were useless, even with a hot air rework station i could not solder new connectors in properly, they probably used infrared or wave soldering at the factory.

I need the thing to boot from a 16GB SDHC and the BIOS does NOT support such blasphemy. I can solder a small USB drive internally to act as a bootloader, but what do i put on it?

Basically i want to know whether something placed on a small USB drive can boot the thing and then transfer control to the SDHC, or if i'm better off buying a USB SDHC adapter and calling it a day.

Answer:Installing on Aspire One SDHC - NO BIOS SUPPORT

Have you tried entering the BIOS to Enable Boot Menu, then use the F12 hot key to access one-time BIOS Boot Menu? See if card shows up to boot there. It does on my Acer's.

What happened to the 3 USB 2.0 ports which come standard on the Acer Aspire One ZG5 specs - gdgt?

The easiest way without a DVD drive is to use UltraISO trial version to open ISO on File tab, Write Image on Bootable tab, Format then Write to USB stick. Then use the one-time BIOS boot menu F12

when I choose themes aero, why it's just changing the wallpaper, toolbars and other effects do not change??

The current video card driver isn't compatible with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM)??

when i used windows vista it works well but in 7600 version it doesnt work.

my graphic card is sis mirage3+ (sis m672)

how to solve this problem??

thx a lot. .

Answer:Video card driver doesn't support Aero effects

to enable aero to work properly ,the graphic card needs at least direct x 9 or higher, you're card unfotunately does not support that mode ,is the graphics onboard or in a slot? maybe advisable to invest in a newer card

I know there are many other people having this same problem...

I just recently upgraded Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista Home premium. When I "upgraded" though I chose to completly reinstall my OS.

Anyways I used to have transparency, but when I try to get that same effect it says

"The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver."

and then when I try to troubleshoot it says "Video card driver doesn't support Aero effects" . I've tried the "Fix it" options, but that doesnt work.

I just don't see how transperancy would work on vista but not with windows 7... do I seriously have to purchase a new video card?

I got this error after i used the troubleshooter in my laptop. I was surprised to find my screensaver not working with the message "the screensaver can't run because it requires a newer video card or one thats compatible with Direct3D". This error happened recently after I reinstalled my Windows 7 Home Premium OS into my laptop. Before this it was fine.

Here are my laptop specs:
Acer Aspire 4745G
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
4GB DDR3 RAM
512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470

I'm at a loss because I installed the latest ATI Catalyst Suite then it happened. I read other threads quite similar to this before but I can't seem to solve it on my own, especially when I'm not good with computers and stuff. Therefore, any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Video card driver doesn't support Aero effects

The 5470 drivers should support Aero. Don't know why youre getting that error but you need to visit Acer and get your drivers for your video card there.

Check here Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 4745G and get the first AMD VGA driver - 8.84.7.4

You also might want to check this info for Aero - What is the Aero desktop experience?

Please go to device manager and click on display adapters and tell me what it says.

The way you get there
(Right click "Computer" icon than click "manage" On the left side choose "device manager" than click "display adapters")

Hi and welcome to TSG.

If it is a desktop computer, you most likely need a newer and more powerful video controller card. If it is a laptop, you most likely need a new laptop.

Updating the video drivers may not help if the video hardware is old.

Video Card = Nvidia 8600GTS - its about 2 years oldI've had a rolling issue with this card for awhile and wish I didn't buy it. However I've gotten by with its little quirks, but now I can't even get it to boot.I turn on my computer, everything seems to be on and working fine but my computer screen doesn't come on. It goes from being on to power save mode, so I assumed the video card wasn't working properly.I checked all the connections first, nothing was out of order. I turned the whole computer off and restarted the machine. Still nothing.One of the things I did notice about it was that the video card does have power going through it. I know that because the fan is on. Usually boot mode for the video card goes like this:1) turns on2) goes to full power on the fan3) goes back to normal setting on the fanHowever, the fan keeps at full power. Not sure why this is. So all I know is the video card is getting power but the connection doesn't seem to be sound.I check the wires, everything seems to be in order. I even switched out 3 different connectors to the video card, still nothing.Any advice on my next step would be cool, I know this thing works just not sure if its salvagable.

Hi
I've got a problem with SDHC memory card. My Satellite M70 can't use that card. When I plug the card in the slot nothing happens. This is 8GB card.

Is there any driver to install because I found nothing?

Answer:Satellite M70-151 - SDHC doesn't work

Hey,

Have you checked the user manual of your Satellite M70. If not, please do it!!!

The user manual contains a list of compatible flash cards and the point is that SDHC cards are not supported. You can only use SD cards up to 1GB.

If you want to use an 8GB card you have to use an external card reader.
