Hello, I own a Lenovo W530 (Machine Type 2438).After installing Windows 10 the Lenovo Solution Center recommended a battery update, which I did, but didnt work. Since that I had some problems with my BIOS, but they stopped (re-enter date) . About two weeks ago, my battery was empty and my laptop crashed.When restarting it my display didn`t work any more. I thought that my display / display cable broke (i had reordered a display a week before due to stripes on my lcd caused by dumb cleaning).After the new display didnt work I noticed that one cable of the intern display connection broke:so I ordered a new intern display connection  After installing it, it didnt work too and I observed, that I can connect and work via an external monitor problemless, but when trying to "duplicate" the laptop screen to the monitor it stays black, as the display does... What do you recommend?  Best regards!

Hello all! I am new here and I need your help so much. Earlier I had some problems with non working polish signs like ć, ź, ż, but that was BIOS problem and has be solved with the upgrade to 2.0 version. So now - like in the title - other issues are there.
1. I can change modes between wifi and flight one, but its indicator is still shine (in the flight mode too) and never gonna turn off.
2. I cant make upercase of "B" letter - shift works properly. I can write other letters uppercase.
3. Combination ctrl+alt+del doesnt work (Win8.1)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Greetings,
Damien

Answer:Satellite L50-B - wifi indicator doesnt turn off and doesnt work Uppercase B

Hello Damien

Really strange issues.
Do you use original preinstalled OS that you got with your machine?

I mean all listed issues are really strange and I would like to know if they exist for long period of time or have you noticed all of them few days ago. Especially issue with WLAN is a bit confusing.

i was successful in stopping the advertisements. although not long afterwards the internet would stop after 5 mins and i would have to keep restarting. once i tried to system restore it wont go back past the day i started having this internet problem. im not sure if its related to the previous problem or if i deleted a file i should not have?

Ok i just bought a Kingston 1gb ddr2 667mhz ram to go with my other stick of ram which is exactly the same.Well the only difference appears to be the chipset, on the new one it looks as though its elpida but on the current one it just says kingston on the chips.When i put them both in though and turn on the computer i get 1 long beep, followed by 2 short beeps.when i have just the new one in on its own the computer starts to load but then stop with no beeps. But when its just the old one on its own, it works fine.I thought i would try here before i assume its faulty ram. What is also odd is i checked a site for asus beep codes and 1 long beep followed by 2 shorts is supposed to mean there is a video adapter error.I dont think its a lack of power as i have a 500w PSU.And yes before you ask, i did take anti-static precautions.Any help is appreciated?

Answer:Ram doesnt appear to work.

What happens if you take the old ram out and place the new stick of ram where the old one was.There is a bit of difference between the brand you have mentioned, and other ones such as Corsair and Kingston. These are reputuble and very good manufacturers of RAM and will almost certainly work in most computers. Other, cheaper brands may not work, because of compatibility differences.

Answer:Spy bot doesnt work.

Hello The BRat,

Lets try Ad-Aware. Download it from my signature. While your at it download CWShredder also. Don't do anything with it yet.

Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

Before restart, Empty Recycle Bin.

Restart your computer.

Update HijackThis also. Yours is out of date.

Download HijackThis from link in my signature. Save it to a permanent folder (I create a new folder in C:\ named HJT). Open and hit scan, then save log. Once it is saved it will open in notepad. Select all from the edit button, copy and paste the results here. Don't fix anything with it yet! Someone experienced with the logs will advise you.

Dear Gurus,Hi. I have been a proud buyer of the lenovo T61 machine for almost a year now and I am proud my machine is still few hours old which was used only for the two problem resolutions(first it was restoration issues and then battery issues).Finally I got replacement battery now I felt that my machoine doesnt have mic. I did try to look for it and then after a long serach on the internet did find out that my machine did have a mic but its not working. Kindly lenovo lovers plz help me out how to make this work. At times I feel bad that I bought the most reliable name (THINKPADS) in the notebook industry or at times i felel that may be I was the unlucky ones. I need urgent help as I am about to go on my business trip and without a mic i will be stuck. Thanks in advance waiting for a reply soon.

Go to Solution.

Answer:T61 does it have a mic if so why doesnt it work ?????????

The mic on your computer is near the right side of the touchpad. You can learn this by opening Help Center on your ThinkPad (press ThinkVantage / Help & Support / Learn about my computer). Here you can find visual information about what is where on your machine.Why are you so sure that you mic does not work? If I were you I could check all the relevant information about the mic that is available on your system (try Windows XP help and Control Center). Finally, you can test it by using Lenovo System Toolbox.

Im installin 98SE on my laptop. Everything is goin fine until this pops up:

File copying Problem:
You interrupted Setup while it was copying windows file from Setup {.CAB] file.

I can click ok, cancel, skip file, or details. This happens with several files ( i click skip) until i get to one that i cannot skip.

This happens at 14% completion. At that point the cd drive stops the whirring noise. I didnt touch ANYTHING.

Whats wrong, and how can i fix it? Thanks.
 

Answer:Why doesnt it ever work for me?!

Ouch. Sounds like the disk is damaged. Hows it look as far as scratches go? You can try cleaning the disk using rubbing alcohol. I use a piece of toilet paper wetted with alcohol. Gently wipe the disk from the centerhole outward. Hopefully that will get it to read ok.

Whats wrong with it is that when i turn the computer on, it doesnt display anything on the screen, and the mouse and keyboard dont work either, and only the fan is on. Also the light around the power button turns into a solid orange color. Also the computer smells like burned rubber. Also last night i uninstalled my old nvidia drivers, and installed new ones, but it was working fine last night after i had done that.

Please if someone can help me ASAP it would be greatly appreciated

Answer:cmd doesnt work on xp

Could possibly be an infection try this and have it checked by a HJT expert here:

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.

I disconnect LAN and reconnect and it FTP works. But when I shut it down and start my PC again, I got to repeat the same process.

Any idea how to get this fixed ?

Thanks

Answer:FTP doesnt work unless

By disconnect LAN, do you mean you unplug the ethernet cable, or do you repair, or disable/reenable the internet connection from windows?

Also, can you browse the internet from your internet browser without going through the process you described?

a while back i plugged in my joystick into my front panel usb (man, this sounds like a bad porno script written by a nerd) and my computer just went dead. what happened was the capicators in my PSU just up and popped basically. anyway, i cant use usb 2.0 anymore. its enabled in my bios, its deffinetly supported, its broke on all ports so im not plugging it in in the wrong spot. is it possible that there was like, a voltage irregularity but it only effected my usb 2.0 controller? everything else works as expected.

my mobo is a gigabyte GA-7N400-L

also, i just looked in the hardware manager and theres a question mark next to my Universal Serial Bus controller. i do have the latest drivers for my motherboard and the chipset and whatnot. would i have to install the USB controller seperately then?
 

Answer:USB 2.0 Doesnt work

Well, since it happened when you plugged something in the USB port then it is very likely it fried something in the USB controller but nowhere else.

You should find out if it was your joystick that caused the damage or your USB ports were wired to the motherboard wrong.

You could get your motherboard replaced if it is under warranty or just buy a PCI USB controller.

Question: Mic doesnt work

Ok so ive been reading a lot and found that there is a large issue with mics not working properly in windows 7.

here is my dilemma
Imma make this quick:

Came home to talk to buddy on skype. when i plugged in my mic and tried to call him, skype said there was a problem with my mic. under RealtekHD audio (onboard controller for Gigabyte p55 Ud2 board) the mic is recognized and i can hear my self talk if i turn on playback. http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/7650/micproblem.jpg
under the windows sound setup i tried to configure the mic but it wouldnt work. i get a popup saying "Make sure your audio hardware is working properly and check your audio configuration in the audio devices and sound themes control panel" http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/8367/micproblem2.jpg

so i decided to reinstall the audio drivers from the gigabyte disk. well after rebooting, i had no sound through the speakers and no sound through the mic still. windows tells me i have no speakers plugged in and i cant even begin to change volume levels anywhere. i re-flashed my bios of the board from f7 to f10 but that didnt change anything

please help, this is starting to piss me off (more so cause it slate and i just wanted to game after work)

Update:
i did a system restore and my speakers work again, but the mic still does not work. i can only hear it if i listend to the mic playback in realtek audio hd manager. if i try to calibrate it, the mic doesnt work

Hey guys,

What happened was that I installed IE7 and then realised it kept crashing and used up too much resources on my system and made it run slow so I then uninstalled it and it left IE6 which is what I was using before. However, since this uninstall, IE6 (which worked fine until I installed IE7) stopped working even though my internet connection is fine. The reason I never really bothered about fixing it was that I was using FF as my default browser at the time so I never really missed it.

Today, I needed to use IE so I reinstalled IE 7 including all the latest updates for it from the ms website to see if the problem with IE would correct itself but still no joy - it says 'IE cannot display the webpage'.

I then tried also to use the diagnose problem function within IE to work out the problem but no joy. Ive attached a screenshot of what comes up when I run the diagnose connection problem function in IE7. I also tried to use the ietab add-on in Firefox but that doesnt work either.

Just to confirm, my OS is windows XP SP2 and my internet connection is fine and I use Firefox 2 with no probs. Im using McAfee Firewall and internet explorer exe has full access so it cant be my firewall that is the problem.



All assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:IE Doesnt work...help!

Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized) (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.


In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD.

I have had windows vista for the past 5 years and I'm ready for a change. With the recent failing of my graphics card (Nvidia Geforce 8300 GS) I went out and purchased a new one (Nvidia GeForce 210). Nothing extra special but I was certainly excited about it after dealing with yellow lines, black dots, and a far too large screen for anyone to handle, for a few months. I waited as long as I did to replace the graphics card, because (and this is just my luck) my computer started to act funny around the same time it started failing. Silly me, I thought maybe it was just a virus or malware issue. Mostly I just like to fix things myself and I made it a goal of mine to figure out the problem. After giving it a month of extensive searching I gave up..or gave in. Bought the new graphics card, went crazy and bought windows 7 too. I just wanted to clean install and start over at this point. (Yes, everything is backed up). I wasnt really sure about how to go about doing this though and decided to install the graphics card first. After doing so though, and this was an after thought, I cleand installed Vista because maybe I should've uninstall the previous drivers first? Anyway, Vista loaded, beautifully.... and this is with just a standard VGA graphics adapter? How is that possible? I tried running off VGA just 2 days prior and it looked like a even more messed up version of a really bad safe mode before I did the clean install? Well, anyway, Im not really complaining.

Answer:dvd drive doesnt work, please help

Personally it might be best to spend $35 on a new dvd unit and your problem should go away. However one of the few windows problems I have encountered with cd/dvd's was after installing the hardware driver for the unit it would have the yellow exclamation beside the dvd/cd drive in device manager and would not properly install on the newer operating systems. In that case I researched: how to delete the high and low filters for dvd, and that solves that issue. That does not sound like your issue. Have you another unit you could install in and see if the problem disappears? Most likely needs replaced....10 min. job. it is 5yrs old.

Hi Pr0jectX,

Welcome to TSG!

First, visit C:\Windows where you will find the regedit.exe executable. Right-click on the file and select Properties which displays the Properties window. Click on the Security tab. There you will find out what the security settings are for the executable esp with regard to Administrator assuming you are doing this from your Administrator account

The Administrator should have the following blocks checked:
Full Control
Modify
Read & Execute
Read
Write

If your settings are different, make the changes, click on Apply button, then click on Ok to exit the Properties window.

Does it now work for your Administrator account?

here is the driver page for your machine, though there is no drivers listed for Vista, the audio one for xp should be fine.

on the base of your machine there should be a service tag number, this number is specifically designated to your machine, should you run into issues like this again use that tag # on Dells website and it will give you all the drivers/chipsets and software that was originally installed on that machine.

I have 2000 Pro--mine is located in C:\winnt\system32

Hi all
I am using windows XP Pro, SP3 (32 bit) on toshiba Tecra M5 laptop.
I had problems with internet explorer 8, namely, I could not see the blank-fill up forms on webpages, such as on google homepage to enter the search key words (the box was enormously shrinked, though I could type but unable to see anything). Following this, I removed IE8 and tried to re-instal IE7. All worked fine during installation but after re-start I found that IE7 has been installed and I started getting errors in other programs such as CC cleaner "RunDll32.exe-ordinal not found;The ordinal 237 could not be located in the dynamic link library IEFRAME.dll"
I repeated this several times without luck.
I do get folllowing error on IE7 icon click:Error loading: C\windows\system32\inetcpl.cpl, the operating system cannot run %1 (This error doesnt come when IE8 is installed but then I have other problem mentioned above).
Any help will be highly appreciated.
thanks.

hii recently bought a lenovo b550.but i got a problem with the function, which you can use by pressing fn + the key with the right orange icon.for example the upper keys on the F1-F12 buttons dont work.the sound +/- on the cursor keys do work, but the + and - are exchanged. so if i press - the sound gets louder. on the other hand the keys for the display dont work either. i dont know what to do. is i a driver malfunction?do someone has made some experience with those errors?

Answer:B550 Fn-key doesnt work

The Fn key is OS-independent (it's a hardware trigger). If it doesn't work good, and if your laptop is under warranty, the best thing you can do is make a call to customer service. It's possible that your laptop needs technical service.

A couple hours ago i installed 2 PC2700 1 Gb RAM sticks in my computer.

It seemed to go okay,but when i turn on the computer the monitor is completely black, and doesnt show at all. I know that it gets power though.

Also when i took out the graphics cards cable to the screen, a message displayed at the monitor saying something like "No signal, check cable connections". But when i put it back in the monitor went to being all black again.

The computer speeds up well, but after a couple of seconds it sort of cools down and doesnt seem to do anything.

My specs:
Amd Athlon 2600+ (not sure)
3 Gb of RAM (2x PC2700, 1x PC3200)
1.92 GHz
ATI X1650 PRO AGP

Answer:RAM in = Monitor doesnt work

Did you make sure the RAM was seated correctly? Double check to see if its in tightly or not. Also, is the RAM compatible with your motherboard? Do the speeds match up to what it's compatible with? Have you tried with just the 2 PC2700 sticks, and leave out the single PC3200 stick to see if it boots that way? Also try just single sticks at a time (1 PC2700 at a time, and then if one works, add your other PC3200 to see if it still works).

hi, i have two win7 systems (laptop and home-server) as well as some mac osx systems. i want to share 2x 500gb harddrives in my home-server with every other pc in my network.
So i joined the same homegroup as my win7 laptop, i changed to windows sharing options so everything is enabled (and no password sharing) and then i right clicked the harddrive -> share -> allow everything for everybody -> apply

on my laptop i see the harddriver but when i click on it says i dont have the permission. i can acess the public folder tho..

the other way (so sharing my laptops harddrive) works fine and i did the same thing.

any ideas ?

thanks

Answer:sharing doesnt work

I have the same problem. I'm sure it's a firewall problem I just never fixed it. Do you have Norton?

i'm probably missing something obvious here, but why doesnt this work?!?if you could download the zip file i link to, could you please try it for me?!if you extract it, it should give a single html file, and a folder called "_images", in that are four jpgs, one called "banner".in dreamweaver,the banner at the top appears ok. but when i launch it in IE, it doesnt! i have looked at everything i cn think of, so i must be missing something really obvious.click herehope that link works.thanks in advance. Tom

Answer:why on earth doesnt this work?!

You have your image source file in the wrong tag.Move it from the <TR> tag to the <TD> tag below it, like this: <TR> <TD colSpan=2 background="_images/banner.jpg"><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="4" color="#FFFFFF">0. Aims and Outcomes</font></TD> </TR>Job done.;o)

i have this other computer where all of a sudden teh mouse didnt work. Im not sure when it happened maybe it was wheni started it. I dont see anything wrong with the connection.
All i can link to it is teh fact that i tried to install this dlink driver that i downloaded but in the folder there were a bunch of folders and i stupidly just went to one and clicked an exe.
first it froze tehn it loaded a setup screen and tehn it said there was some error but i wasnt paying attention to it i just quit it and then i think there was another error which i didnt pay attention to either. I think ill jsut reinstall windows since the computer is basically empty and i got nothing to lose.

Answer:2142 doesnt work, what do i do?

Dont buy games made by EA lol. I had a problem sort of like this. Make sure whatever firewall you have is letting BF2142 through. Than check to make sure that the patch is the correct version. Funny, i was just having this problem yesterday. I just reinstalled it about 4 times and than one time it decided to work.

Answer:help!!! my cd drive doesnt work

Have you tried booting to a CD? A Windows install CD, or 'live' CD like Knoppix or the UBCD4Win, even bootable memory diagnostic or hard drive diagnostic would work. If you can successfully boot to a CD, that would tell us that the CD is functionally OK (for reading CDs anyway) and that the problem is Windows/software based. Does the drive appear in the Device Manager? in My Computer? in the computer management console? and what version of Windows are we dealing with? XP? Vista?
Try booting to a CD. Then post with the results of that, and some more details, and we'll go from there......
