I have an Ideapad Y510P with 24G SSD and Windows 8.1. I uninstalled the Express cache by a mistake. So I want to re-install it. Unfortunately, the install program told me that I need to reboot the system even I tried to reboot or shut down the system several time.
My laptop G505 59379534 has become horribly slow. In fact it is so right from beginning when I purchased six months back. Around 50 GB of data consisting of audio, video files are stored in it. It takes atleast 2 to 3 minutes to open even a small file of 5 Mb size. Also I have installed all latest drivers from AMD site. Also I am using Kapersky internet security 2014 and it is up to date. No virus or spyware is detected when I run full scan. Can I improve it's speed and if so how.
I bought my G505s in August 2013 and I'm only noticing now that it's been running pretty hot.I've been using several different programs to try to see and compare the temperatures of the quad core CPUs. I've also looked in many different fourm communities and have found this is not at all like the common overheating problems with the G505s. Others have experienced other heating problems when they play games, as their cores go to around 70C to 80C
"How so," you ask?Details and actions I've taken:
1. My temperatures soar to above 80C each when idle, and over 100 when doing light work. 2. BIOS and drivers have all been updated to the latest versions available for Windows 8.1 as per the Lenovo website. 3. I have never played games on the laptop, so I know the overheating is not because something related to that. 4. I cleaned my computer yesterday, although there was hardly any dust build up.
My temperature readings come from speccy, and hwmonitor.
I am getting frequently the message ' Catalyst control center has stopped working' on my laptop. My laptop is G505(59379534) with win 8.1 64 bit os. I learnt that updating to latest catalyst drivers from AMD site may solve this problem. But how can I locate specific driver suited to my laptop in AMD site for downloading. Also today morning the message ' Display driver stopped and it was recovered successfully' was flashed in laptop. So I think latest display driver is also needed. Whether I have to install any updates for solving above problems if so how to identify required drivers for downloading.
My lenovo G505 recently had to be reformated because there was a blue screen that came up one day that said there was problem with my PC and the error was critical_service_error, something like that. So my dad had to reinstall windows 8 for me using a cd he had that didn't come with the computer I don't believe. So now for some reason my screen brightness isn't adjusting and it's driving me crazy! It's staying on full brightness which I hate! I tried changing it from the personalization screen and nothing happens.
I updated/upgraded my G505 to Windows 8.1 this morning and now it appears that Bluetooth isn't working. I've downloaded the driver listed for the Atheros/Broadcom device, but when the install runs it says it can't find anything to install. Manually running both driver installs doesn't get me anywhere.
Is this a known issue with Win 8.1? I tried the Win 8 driver, same thing.
After the latest set of updates, my touchpad took to displaying a stationary gray circle/swirl half the time when I tried to move the cursor. Seemed to happen less if I moved very slowly. I turned off scrolling (again), and it's mostly gone away. Is this related to scrolling?
For a few months now my Lenovo B575 laptop will become unresponsive if it sits idle for some time, around an hour. If music is playing, it continues to play, screen saver continues to go, but keyboard and mouse are locked up, system is unresponsive. Have to do hard shut down and then restart. I've checked power settings and nothing seems odd.
For the past two days LSC is alerting that Hardware scan has detected one or more hardware failures. The tests in which my laptop G505 59379534 is failing are given as Targeted read and smart short self test. Also against local connection test warning is shown. My OS is windows 8.1. Only couple of days back I have installed HP2545 printer on my PC. I do not know wheher this has something to do with present status of laptop. Also I am using Kaspersky internet security 2014. I am worried whether this alert message points to any serious impending problem for my laptop. Laptop is almost 9 months old. It is still under warranty.
I waited a long time for this new W540. Downlkoad all the newest drivers and did all the updates and now this POS will not shut down. Just goes to a black screen and have to hold the power button to force a shut down.
When I try to reboot the screen goes to black right after the home screen with a twirling cursor. Had to send my new W530 back for hard drive failure and now this W540 is screwed, too!
I've had this issue since new (6+ months) which has been driving me crazy. It's very intermittent, I generally shutdown every day, and it might work for 2-3 weeks fine. Other times I'll boot up, have no sound in browsers and have to reboot multiple times before it works. After booted, it either completely works or it doesn't.
So when the problem happens system sounds and other applications play fine, but no sound in Explorer, Chrome, etc. Checked all the usual things, updated drivers, reinstalled Flash, checked volume settings, etc.
Searching around many other people faced a similar issue which was fixed by a registery change, I checked this also but my registry was correct. For example: [URL] ....
I got to admit that I got this Laptop for quite a while now but it is still bothering me that it reboots automatically after shutdown when power cord is plugged in. Without the power cord it works as it should.....
I sorted my 5315's battery problem (it was the AC adapter), only to find that now the touchpad is quite unresponsive. It won't move smoothly, constantly stopping and starting.
I've played with all the settings I can find, and installed the latest Synaptics XP driver, but Windows seems to see it as a "PS/2 port pointing device" - the laptop doesn't have a PS/2 port, so this is obviously incorrect.
I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Pavilion g6-2123us I purchased in 2012. For quite a while now I've had some annoying problems with my touchpad. And it's been getting more and more common as time continues. When these events happen, the whole touchpad is unresponsive, including the on/off buttion, as if the device had been simply unplugged. I have tried a wide variety of things to fix it including uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers multiple times using the most up-to-date drivers from both the HP and Synaptics websites.I have gone to the "mouse properties" in control panel and used the reset devices which worked quite well. Some times, just putting the computer to sleep for a short period of time will do the job too. However, as time continues, these things work less and less. Could it just be an internal hardware issue with a loose connection? Or, just an overtired device? I've replaced and updated the drivers multiple times, so I know that option wont do the job.
I recently bought this 2-in-1 and I love it but when using the keypad the cursor freezes temporarily in between actions so I have to resort to touch to continue. There's a lag of a few seconds (10) that is frustrating when I want to use the device as a laptop. The touchpad becomes unresponsive and I have to wait or use touch to continue...
Having problems with the cursor, I have tried various Drivers but to no avail, so i replaced the Palmrest and the problem still exists, The bios recognises the Touchpad, can't figure out were the problem is coming from.
My Pavilion TS 14 Sleekbook running Windows 8 did two updates today that required restart for both. I don't know what the updates were, I have it set to autoload important updates. When I tried to "flip" my lock screen to enter my password to open, the screen did nothing but show energy waves around my fingertip. Used the keyboard to open to password page. Tried to pull up touch screen keyboard, nothing. Used regular keyboard to type in password and then the touchscreen works fine.
I have a Precision M4700, Windows 7 Ultimate on which the touchpad and keyboard nubbin have become unresponsive ever since I installed a Mircosoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000. The touchpad doesn't even appear in the device manager under the human input devices. Pro support at Dell is baffled. I've looked at the settings in the Dell Touchpad software and everything looks OK (e.g., Touchpad is not disabled). It's simply gone. It doesn't appear in the Bios or when we booted from a Windows 7 DVD. We well probably either have to send the system back or replace the motherboard? What is to prevent it from happening again?
