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.)

When I am trying to set up my computer to get TV from my set top box the computer identifies my signal and shows a small picture of the live TV.  When I click on next I get a message - IR Hardware not detected.  Can someone please tell me to what this refers?  My wireless remote works and the set top box has an IR cable that is only a few feet away.  My TV remote picks it up easily.  Is there more hardware that needs to be bought for the TV to work with this computer? Thanks, David

I'm taking a college course in networking basics. I have an assignment that requires me to spec out a server for a small business network that supports less than 30 users. I have found sites where I can pick and choose servers and server hardware upgrades, but I don't know what is overkill or underkill.

Can anyone refer me to a site that offers guidelines to help me with my research?

Many thanks,

Hi to all. I bought my system on 23 December and am really enjoying using the laptop. However, it appears that my system does not match the specifications it says it should have. Namely the memory. Specifications say I have 256mb ram though Everest home edition says 190mb total memory. See below:

--------[ Memory ]---------------------------------------

Physical Memory:
Total 190 MB
Used 170 MB
Free 19 MB
Utilization 90 %

Swap Space:
Total 344 MB
Used 277 MB
Free 66 MB
Utilization 81 %

Virtual Memory:
Total 534 MB
Used 448 MB
Free 85 MB
Utilization 84 %

Problems & Suggestions:
Suggestion Install more system memory to improve applications performance.


Also do not have DVD supermulti. I have dvd rom/cdwriter. Is it possible that the model I have has been discontinued? The memory alone is not really sufficient for Windows XP.

Thanks,

Larry

Answer:Satellite L20: Need detailed hardware specifications

Hi Lawrence,

The disparity with you reported RAM is usually as a result of the RAM being shared with the graphics card (usually 64Mb). This results in there being 192Mb remaining for system use and it is this that your version of Everest is reporting. This is quite normal for notebooks which use shared video RAM.

I believe the minimum specification for Windows XP is 128Mb but I agree with you that a higher value would be most beneficial. ;)

Unfortunately you don't say exactly which version of the L20 you have (usually L20-xxx) but I suggest you check the specification against the Toshiba web-site.

I hope you continue to enjoy your L20 and welcome to the forum :)

What type of hard drive does this model have? IDE, PATA or SATA? I would like to buy a spare and to clone the present drive.

Does this model really have bluetooth? I am using a dongle with my mouse. It sticks out and I would rather use supplied bluetooth if it exists.

Answer:Hardware specifications for Satellite P100-347

Hi mate,

your machine has an SATA driver equipped and should have bluetooth onboard. I checked google and the description of your model type says that something like a USB bluetooth module should be equipped (I guess it?s some kind of internal USB port..)

I had a Question on upgrades. I purchased a HP Pavilion 15-bc060nr laptop and in the pc maintenance and service guid it shows there configurations of hard drive combinations with the M.2  SATA which I assume is how they sell them.  For example it show my laptop with a 128GB M.2 SATA  Drive in a combination with a 1TB hard drive and 2Tb hard drive. It also shows M.2 256GB Sata configuration (TLC) but does not show it in a combination with the hard drives so I assume I could add a M.2  256GB SATA to my laptop.  Now my question is since that is what they show in there PC maintenance and service guide does that mean a  512GB, 1TB or possibly a 2TB M.2 SATA SSD possibly could work but it never sold with it so it is not listed or it was never tested? Same goes with Hard drives could I add a 3-4TB hard drive also? Not that I need all this storage I just am am curious and am trying to understand HP's service guide of what I can do and can't do. I have concluded the sevice guide shows different variations of what can come with laptop models as mine for example also shows the M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD though I have already concluded mine only supports the M.2 2280 SATA SSD and not the M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. Thank You for your feedback Steve  

Answer:PC Maintenance and Service Guide hardware Specifications.

Hi, Normally a Maintenance and Service Guide is for a series of many laptops. We can say they are in a same family BUT they can have many different configurations from CPU's to colors. Since I don't know which guide you are talking about and what is your computer therefore I can' say much. But looks like the series has two storage options Single storage: can be HDD (including hybrid) and M2.SSDDual storage: M.2 SSD + HDDThey are pre-installed and fully supported under warranty terms. Regards.

Question: Idea Center K330

Just got the machine back from Texas after having 2 new motherboards installed by in home techy. The machine would beep twice on bootup and it took a keystroke to get it to boot. Now it beeps once but does boot and operate OK . I understand beeps are the way the motherboard communicates that something is wrong . The machine uses XP Pro X64 and the bios is supposed to be set for it. The in home techy reconnected the HD and optical drive several times to try to stop the beeps .There are 4 Sata ports. Two are red and two are orange. HELP...Thanx Arnie
 
Moderator note; e-mail address removed to stop the spambots getting it

Answer:Idea Center K330

Hi Arnie, welcome to the forum,
 
In principal you are correct about beeps being an indicator for something being not quite right with a system or it's mainboard. However a lot of system / mainboards do emit a single beep at boot which has the opposite meaning; it indicates the presence of a working graphics card / chip.
 
That said I'm not personally aquainted with the K330, but according to the Hardware Maintenance Manual (2.43MB) it should start without a beep when boot is set to "Quiet Mode".  Could you maybe check that the BIOS isn't set to "Enhanced Mode", basically you need to do the opposite to point 3 in the following text which I copied from the manual.
 
To enable beep, memory count, and checkpoint code display whena successful POST occurs, do the following:1. Start the Setup Utility program. See ?Starting the Setup Utilityprogram?.2. Select Start Options.3. Set Power-On Self-Test to Enhanced.
 
Please let us know if this helps.

We recently purchased a K210 that came with Vista Home installed.  We upgraded to Windows XP Pro so we could put the machine into our Active Directiory.  We have all of the drivers for XP from the Lenovo site but we have an intermittant issue where the K210 can't find the domain after a reboot.  I remove the computer name from the Active directory and we successfully add the k210 back to the domain.  Is there anything that can be done to prevent this?

Answer:Idea Center K210 on a Domain

First thing first moving from Vista Home to XP Pro is a downgrade (now that I got that of my chest)Second your problem is not a hardware problem because you stated  "I remove the computer name from the Active directory and we successfully add the k210 back to the domain."That leaves you with a configuration problem. You mention that you got all your drivers for XP from Lenovo, because of the limited information you gave us I can give you three options 1. Go to  http://www.versiontracker.com/windows/xp/drivers/network which will help you check your network drivers (Information Pack which can take some time but very throw,)2. You can down load a program called Driver Updater Pro by http://www.ixitools.com There is a cost but more then worth it.3. This will cost you in man power, however I think it's one of the best options. Every system on your network keeps an event log of everything that happens. <Right click "COMPUTER" this will bring up a sub menu pick "MANAGE" this will bring you to "COMPUTER MANAGEMENT" in that window you will find "EVENT VIEWER" open that and you will get a listing of all administrative event. This should give you a clue as to what is going on on your network. I would still do option two, i install iot on almost all of my clients and they enjoy the inproved proformacethis! Hope this helped

Hey,I need a good suggestion after I tell you my story. I have a Lenovo K210 desktop computer with Vista originally One Key Recovery. The OneKeyRecovery never worked but I have reinstalled this Vista once by getting to the recovery partition manually.I purchased Windows 7 64bit OEM CD. I dual booted it to this machine, and now have Vista Home, Windows 7 64bit, and Recovery Partition for Vista on this machine. What I want to do is minimize Vista to factory install and give Windows 7 most of the Hard Drive. I tried to do a reinstall of Vista and when I did it would not do it, because it said the partition is not the same. It is.. in my opinion that the recovery for Vista is seeing Windows 7 partition, (not the recovery partition) and thats why it is saying it is not the same. I thought maybe take out Windows 7 so Vista could see the recovery partition and get Vista back to just factory install and maybe put AV only on it and reinstall Windows 7 to the larger partition. OR eliminate Vista all together except for the recovery partition , but not sure how to do this since it is hidden and has no drive letter. I don't want to completely lose Vista. Can you suggest how to unhide the recovery partition, and how I can make a copy of it then I can reformat the whole drive.Thanks,Bama

Hey, Hope you are having a good day. I have just decided to reinstall Vista because of too many things that are an issue. I am NOT infected, But I believe my registry is screwed, because after I did some scans like Combofix, and AVZ, and HIJackThis. I did this trying to find out what the picky little things are that keep nagging. After I did the computer went crazy. IE 7 got messed up tried to upgrade to IE8 and when I got it installed could only run as administrator with the protected mode off. Could not turn it on, tried resetting the default settings, did not help finally did a system restore. Appears okies now BUT I think it is ony a matter of time.....NOW My question....can you give me simple tut's for a One Key Recovery Install. I have everything backed up, but in reading the book it is a bit confusing. I know there is a recovery partition in on the hard drive, and the harddrive is sufficient to handle the recovery. The only reinstall I have ever done is with XP and a recovery CD. Would appreciate any assist with this. Thanks in advance, Bama

Answer:Reinstalling Vista on the Idea Center K210

Bama, If you believe that your registry is messed up did you get any UAC prompt?Is UAC enabled in your system? After re-installing vista export your registry to another location if you want to restore it at some time. Regarding the recovery issue,there are two options for you one is the instant backup and the other is the restoring to the factory settings.Since you want to re-install vista you have to use the factory backup. Power on the computer. When the screen displays the ?Lenovo? picture initially,press the ?LVT? key on the keyboard to start the Rescue System, where youcan select OneKey Recovery. Select Recover Factory Backup to start the system recovery function.  Follow the onscreen instructions, and press E on the keyboard to start recoveryif you are sure to recover.  Please wait in the process of system recovery. Do not interrupt the operation. After the system is recovered successfully, the software prompts to restart thecomputer. Restart the computer and enter the system.   Message Edited by vijaysaradhi on 08-12-2009 05:58 PM

Purchased an Idea Center B320 several weeks ago. During first week suddenly was unable to boot and a "...unable to locate hard drive partition" message (or something similar) appeared. Lenovo tech support was ineffective, first having me restore original settings (and losing all my data) and then suggesting I return the computer to retailer where I purchased it. I exchanged unit for a new B320. After two weeks use, upon attempted restart, got same message and despite repeated tries, was unable to boot. I unpluged machine, replugged it in, and then was able to boot. Since then this has happened one more time (upon restart) and disconnecting then reconnecting the power supply worked again.  My questions are: 1. Any ideas for a more permenant solution?2. Anyone else had a similar problem? I am wondering if this is a widespread product defect? 

Answer:Persistent Boot Problems in Several Idea Center B320's

You might want to list the complete model number as there are variations on the b320 - I have one and there has been no problems at all on the booting.  Mine is a B320 77602WU.  I'm not sure what the variations are but I've notifced quite a difference in back side jacks and arrangements. Sounds like a hard drive or connection failure but ???? Maybe one of the smarter ones has some ideas for you.

I have a new K320 w/ the Intel i3 core, 6GB ram, and intel integrated graphics. I want to start playing games (World of Warcraft) and my monitor is a generic eMachine 18 inch at 1366x768. Can this handle the demands of the new games coming out or should I upgrade? If so, to what? I do not want to spend over $150 on a graphics card. Thanks!

Answer:Video Card for Lenovo Idea Center K320?

I have the same system I added a radeon hd 4550 1 gig video card because the intel integrated graphics just wont handle playing games. How ever there is a catch to adding a video card to this system and that is the power supply that comes stock. I had to upgrade to a 450 watt because it only comes with a 280 watt psu. Even the low end video cards like mine require at least a 300 watt or greater. But it definatly makes a big difference when playing games. If you want to play games like wow or crysis you will probly want a better card than I have.

Here is my issue...
My computer is about 2 years old got it because it was supposed to be awesome for gaming. For the past month now its just been randomly shutting down....or i should say it is randomly shutting off, completely. No warning no shut down procedure just straight to the always scarey blue screen of death. All thats left on is the power button light on the front of the tower, no green power light on the back of the case. Ive taken it up with verizon since i have their security suite and according to them it is not spyware or a virus. At first I thought it was over heating so i cracked the case and gave a little help with a regular household fan on a low setting giving it a bit more air flow, but even with that i figure couldnt be overheating because at times it will shut down minutes after powerup.Could it really just be that it needs a good cleaning physically? Or am I going to have to shell out money for a new power supply? How can I diagnose the power supply of that is the issue? Ive rolled it back to a restore point and so far its run ok for ten minutes. Any ideas? What could be the problem? Hardware, software, spyware? Any help is seriously appreciated.
 

Answer:Hardware, software, syware..... no idea

Well, clearly, one of the steps here is to clean out all the dust, expecially in the processor and video card heatsinks. Also, while you're in there, reseat ALL the cables, expansion cards, etc.

Next, I'd give it a memory test, at least a couple of hours on one of these. Any failures are a problem, these should run error-free for as long as you let them run.

Hello everyone. I'm new here and this will be my first post on here. I'm sorry if I have started this post in a wrong thread. I'm unsure of where it should go. Anyways, I'm not a tech expert so that's why I here. I will try my best to describe my problem tho.

First of all, I have been having this problem since last week. The problem is that it just auto shut down on me without any warning.

I thought it was because its overheating/the cpu reached it limits hence why it auto shut, but thats probably not the case.

And since that happened I just thought to myself that I should just reinstall windows. Haha. I thought that would solve my problem. But it didn't.

This crash problem occured when I opened game. I also realised that it happen as well when I browse the internet using firefox. Like after I opened it for a few minutes it then shut down.

However, if I'm not opening anything else and just at the desktop and only transferring files for hours, the crash never happen unlike after I rebooted, went to firefox, then googling stuff and then poof, it crashed. I also checked the cpu too, but its not overworking itself. Its just chilling.... Oh, and I checked it from task manager.

I already tried uninstalling the nvidia drivers and went to surf the internet afterward. No crashes at all. I could watch youtube as well without having it crash on me. But when I reinstalled the driver back. It happened again.

2K had it's time in the sun, now it's past. Get XP SP2 on there and you'll be fine. As most others will tell you, with any 64 bit OS you're going to encounter issues with gaming and drivers. I personally don't have any issues at all on this Core 2 Duo running at 1.66 GHz and using Intel GMA950 onboard graphics, so that monster you're going to build would absolutely scream with XP or Vista for most intents and purposes.

For the first time ever, I built a PC in late July. Since the first week of owning it, I have gotten the same BSOD once a month, at least. The BSOD's almost all occurred while gaming as well. I also have experienced 5-10 PC freezes, and I am at a loss. I have run Prime95 and Intel's diagnostic program, and the CPU has passed both fine. I have yet to run Memtest though, mostly because I am a bit fearful of stress testing and don't really know how long to do it for (surprised I even did any with my CPU) and just am worried that pushing it to it's max will shorten its life. I have not stressed tested my GPU, and figured it wasn't the problem as the GPU is at full load a lot of times during most days and these blue screens occur about once a month.

My hard drives seemed to cause a problem because of the frequent freezes. I also cannot put my PC to sleep, because it almost always freezes at the welcome screen when it wakes. I ran SeaTools diagnostics for my hard drive, but it froze my PC instantly. I have two of the same hard drive, but it only freezes at this moment when I have both hooked up. I cloned my main drive to my secondary drive and tried booting with each one hooked up individually. In both cases, I did not freeze when running SeaTools. Both drives also passed its diagnostic tests.

So, here I am, at a huge loss. I have tried several other forums, but people rarely answer and mostly just say to update drivers, which I have already done. I don't know what else I ca... Read more

I've been kickin around the idea of making a website and I want to host it at my house. I don't expect many hits realistically, I can't see their being more than 10-30 hits a day at it's peak. I'm not too concerned about bandwidth and upload speed. It's not going to be more than 1-3 pages with mostly text with some pictures, so I won't be hosting any downloads.

Do any of you host websites at your house? What are the major security concerns? I plan on using Ubuntu 9.04 for it. This is the hardware I was thinking of using, I didn't think it needed to be that powerful and I wanted it to use the least amount of energy possible since it'd be 24/7.

I would assume an Atom would be sufficient.

Answer:Hosting a website at your house. Good/Bad idea? Hardware questions as well.

really to host a website it isn't difficult at all, grab a good copy of ubuntu server edition and apache. the only thing that really limits you is bandwidth. Also if you don't plan on getting many hits then hardware is a minimum. The atom processor would do just fine in that case, but if you ever got a lot more traffic then it might become a problem.

I used to host a website from my house on a modded xbox...worked fantastically.

Yes, the K220 supports Windows XP. Unfortunately the drivers for XP are not listed at the Lenovo support site. Good news though.....The drivers are available from the manufacturers of the hardware. The chipset and Intel graphics drivers can be downloaded from Intel.com .The audio and ethernet drivers can be downloaded from Realtek.com .If your K220 has Nvidia graphics, you can download the driver from Nvidia.com . If you get those working, you can post the Hardware ID for the other devices and I'm confident we'll be able to find suitable drivers.

Just recently I started having a problem booting my IdeaCenter K220 on, an error occurs with the american megatrends board, showing mouse not found? then getting a PXE MOF extension PXE ROM error??  So I checked and was advised to go into the bios and change the setting for booting the system as it is starting to open not from the HDD but from the CD ROm, which I donot know how it happened.  But I cannot get into the bios, it stated to hit the enter button, doesnt work, and the F1 or F2 keys wont go intot he bios.  How can I get my system to open correctly again.   After the initial error the system boots up correctly but takes a lot longer to boot up.

Answer:Cannot get into the Bios on my IdeaCenter K220

Hi        I read through some of the manual for your k220. Im not sure if it helps or not but there are 2 ways described on entering the set-up both involving the F1 key. The first is power off then press and hold the F1 key till you here beeps.   The second is if you have a usb keyboard you shuld repeatedly press and release the F1 key till you hear beeps.If you still cant get into the setup I suggest clearing the cmos which requires  you to open the case and find the clear cmos jumper or better yet remove the on board battery that save the cmos. yet another idea is you may have a defective keyboard or mouse. If none of this works reply back with what exactly you see on screen during P.O.S.T.        One other thing is I have a k320 and If I have my phone on the usb charging or a usb storage device plugged in my pc by some kind of default will try to boot from usb and I cant access the bios either. It will finally boot but it takes a long time.lol

When the PC is in it's problem state, the monitor is shut down like the PC is off and the internal of the PC becomes much quieter almost like it is shut down but inside I can still hear some faint noise like a small fan or something is still running and the green action/hard drive light flashes consistently about every second while it's in this state. If you leave it long enough it will boot back into windows with an error message saying 'Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.' Could it possibly be some shut down settings loaded factory from IBM/Lenovo that I can change?"

Answer:Cannot Restart Brand New k220 PC !!!

welcome to lenovo user forums While i cannot narrow down on the exact service which may be causing you the trouble have you tried the clean boot mode where you may disable all windows services(essential ones like networking will still work).It is also important for you to remember from when were you facing this problem (post installation of any apps or drivers).  Try using "last known good configuration" press F8 during bootup You may find  detailed steps  through which you may resolve your problem.follow this link from microsoft answers.com http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/answersfeedback/thread/7ffb42f3-c3b4-4631-9ce7-0bf1...

We just bought a new K220, our first new computer in years. Out of the box everything worked except the ethernet port - no lights, no activity, nothing. I called my DSL provider just to make sure my DLS modem and connection were okay (they work fine on our old computer). So I called Lenovo Tech Support. They ran me through the usual tests - tracert, new driver, etc. Nothing. So they ordered up a new motherboard and sent out a tech a few days later. Same result. So the tech called Lenovo Support and they ordered up another motherboard. A few days later he showed up again. Same result. He said we needed to contact Lenovo ourselves. So I called Tech Support again and they "escalated" the call to Customer Relations (72 business hour wait for them to return a call). I got frustrated waiting for them to call me back so I tried Returns. They told me that I had just passed the 21 day no-questions-asked return limit (waiting for technicians to come out and people to call me back) and referred me to Sales. I called Sales. The helpful woman started over with Tech Support. They referred the problem to Customer Relations (but they call you, you don't call them). I complained as vehementlly as I could while still remaining polite. Later in the day a manager from Customer Relations left a message. When we finally hooked up the next day, he was very sympathetic and set up a replacement order. In the meantime, I went o...

I am having trouble restoring XP Media Center Edition from a Ghost 9.0 image.

This is the situation: (and please read through before assuming that this has to do with side-stepping paying for software, which it doesn't, and closing the thread.)

I have this copy of Vista that I want to put on my notebook. My notebook has my copy of XP MCE on it which has my installation of Pro/ENGINEER installed on it. I do not have my installation disc for Pro/ENGINEER anymore and it is really expensive to just go and buy again, so I would like to transfer my XP MCE with it to my desktop so I can use Pro/ENGINEER on that, and install Vista on my notebook.

I took a ghost 9.0 image from my notebook (from a few months ago) and tried to restore it on my desktop. Obviously, all the hardware is different so I have been trying to repair the installation to install the new drivers. My XP MCE disc is at home in another state, so I've been trying to use my friend's XP Pro disc to repair my installation and update all of the drivers.

However, I have been having trouble. When I use the XP Pro disc and click "continue" at the window where it asks to continue setting up windows or repair using the repair console it shows my the partition with the windows installation on it, doesn't list the file system like it should, and says that the partition is nearly empty (less 2 MB) and I can't continue with repairing. My only option is to format it and do a fresh install. It a... Read more

Answer:restoring XP Media Center Edition with different hardware

Well, I'm making headway. After running BOOTCFG /LIST it appears that there are no windows installations listed which is why I am having trouble repairing it.

After running BOOTCFG /SCAN I receive errors suggesting that there are errors in the file structure or otherwise on the volume.

Running chkdsk informed me that one or more errors where detected...
I think fixing these errors so that I can properly scan and add the install to the list will solve my problem about not being able to repair the install. If anyone has run into this or knows how to help, let me know. In the meantime I will work on fixing the errors...

I am very seriously looking into opening a Lan Center. I've even come up with a name and looking into Location in my town for rent. I have been into multiplayer pc games for about 12 yrs now. Attended many lan parties, and helped run a few. I've never prepared for something of this magnitude though. If I am going to get this business going I want to do it right. I want the players to want to return. I have no problem with the gaming hardware. I have been building pc's for 10 plus yrs. I am self taught at everything. My networking skills are average or slightly above I would think. I'm planning on having 30 to 35 pc's set up at first. There will also be 10 to 15 stations for people to bring there own pc's. They still pay to play on a high speed network. Bandwidth is my first question. I know I need switches and not hubs. I am that smart (heh). I am familiar with trunking and cascading on a 10/100 mbs switches. My question is should I go this route and have 2 32 port 10/100mbs switches cascaded or 4 16 port 10/100mbs switches trunked 4 way. Or 24 port switches which seem more available. Or should I just go with Gigabit Switches and if so which ones and why. Would something like this work 96 port switch with gigabit uplink . Next question should I go with on board gigabit lan or spend the extra and get network cards for each pc.

thanks for any help guys.
if I get this thing going sometime I will throw a party when we open for the [H]'ers.

Answer:Hope to open Lan Center have Hardware questions

Generally speaking you should stear away from cascading switches unless its absolutely neccessary. The only time I do that nowadays is if the physical topology requires it. As for what speed your switches should be, I'd stick with 100BaseT for the clients and GigE uplinks to your core switch. To be honest, when you consider the low amount of bandwidth actually required by today's games (36Kbps-96Kbps), you could easily support your requirements with a 10BaseT network. However, it's not even funny to recommend a 10BaseT network for any modern enterprise. In your case 100BaseT will suffice just fine.

Hi,
I'll appreciate some ideas on how to safely migrate an existing ATA Center installation across server Hardware. The capacity of the present ATA Center Server was sized for a Pilot deployment. Now we plan to move into full blown deployment. In-place
Hardware resource upgrade is not a likely option. Additionally, the motivation is not to do a fresh install of the server, more importantly not to start learning the environment afresh.

I have just installed Win7 64bit and nothing else. Not connected to the internet yet. The machine acts as it should when I click Shutdown however, once the fans stop spinning it restarts on its own.

I went online from another computer and updated all drivers... no fix though.

I could not see an update for the BIOS from 9/29/2008. Is there one available? If anyone can find a URL I would try that.

Is there a setting in the BIOS that should be changed to prevent this from happening? I couldn't find it although, I changed any settings that suggested restart on failure or error.


Further, the Machine Type and Model as well as the Serial Number are shown as INVALID in the BIOS. I know that there is a utility to change this but don't know where I would find that.

Thanks for any assistance

I have a K220 desktop running Windows 7 64 bit with the onboard Realtek hi def audio chip and the Blueray DVD. (I also upgraded the machine to a GeForce GT8500 video card and other upgrades.) There is apparently no recording option available with the built in sound chip. I am unable to record an incoming audio stream from the net, for instance. There are no devices or options listed under the recording devices of the Lenovo HD Audio Manager, and no recording devices listed using "Goldwave", which I had been using for audio recording in my previous computer. I have the latest Realtek driver. i would like to upgrade to a separate audio card using either the PCI or PCI-Express slots. There could be an issue with the DVD drive, since it does not have an audio inputs jack? Can anyone suggest a sound card that would work in the K220.I am looking at an Audigy 2 ZS PCI card (the Windows 7 drivers are available) but not sure if the DVD sound will work.I do not use surround sound and not a gamer, but want something that sounds decent.Any suggestions appreciated.Thanks BTW The machine runs great - much better and faster under Windows 7.

So today I had a notification from windows action center that I have 2 Video hardware errors. It really didn't give any other info than that other than giving me a couple of very long log files that mostly just seemed to list all my devices and everything on the computer. It gave me a .dmp, a sysdata.xml and a werinternalmetadata.xml logs for both errors.
Anyway, I'm just puzzled by this and am confused on what this means. Any help would be appreciated. It also doesn't list the errors now unless I go into the action center and click on "Check for solutions".Thanks a lot

I recently did a factory restore on my Lenovo G780 laptop. Ever since, the LSC has been giving me errors. Sometimes, when I open the LSC, the application layout appears, but there is no text; however, I can use my task manager to close it out. Now, when it does work, if I try to run a hardware scan, it will complete the Memory portion of the scan; however, during the Targeted Read Test it will go to either 66% or 72% specifically, and then completely stop. The loading square still moves; however, after leaving it there for a couple hours, it does not move. If I try closing the LSC, my computer freezes to the point I cannot open the task manager or use Ctrl + Alt + Delete. I have tried re-installing the LSC twice, and have even tried using the standalone Hardware diagnostic to run the check up; however, both have the same issue. Anyone have any advice?
