I have a Lenovo 3000 N200. I have 143GB hard drive and only 4GB free space left. I viewed the properties of all the main root folders in the C: Drive and they add up to 65GB so why does it say that i have used 139GB?
The size of the main folders are as follows
Folder Size GB drivers 0.0054 i ntel 0.00232 my music 1.87 program files 4.45 swshare 0.282 swtool 3.11 users 40.3 windows 15.1 Total 65.11972
I checked my backups and one is 40GB in size so i tried to delete it but i got a message saying i do not have enough disk space to perform the operation.Even with this there should still be approx 40GB free disk space. What is taking up so much disk space? Is there a large log file running?i cant find it if there is. How can i delete my backup ? I have tried defragmenting the disk too...
Finally i got my xps 1530 yesterday after 3 weeks of waiting. It started perfectely with no problems. when I was running dvd it hanged suddenly, so i rebooted it with dvd still inside. Now problems starts, as soon as i switches power button all media button glows(which is ok) then optical drive make some noise and it hangs there!!! After rebooting 2-3 times by holding power button for 10 sec dvd came out from drive but still it hangs there. so as soon as i reboots it all media button glows then optical drive make some noise and it hangs there
My lenovo B570 is 1month old, when i turn it on it hangs before the user account appears.. its stucked and just saying "Please wait" then i need to turn it off and turn on and on again till it works. Then sometimes when i shut down its also stucked on "Shutting down" I already tried reformatting and its still the same.
My Lenovo G580AH suddenly became unstartable. It tried to repair the system on startup but didn't finish this after one day.
Then I decided to recover my system using Recovery button. The procedure hangs on 16% with status that 1 sec remaining. I've tried this several times.Current file is different in each case but it is with "thl" extension. Path looks like "C:Program Files (x86)...*.thl" .
I had purchased lenovo g580 core i3 a year ago. 2 days ago, after shutting my laptop, when i tried to switch on, usual lenovo screen appeared in the beginning, but does not happen anything after that. it hangs there, without giving any response.. there are 2 option i.e., to press F2 for setup and F12 for boot menu. but nothing happens even when i press those buttons...
I have had my Inspiron 7347 for a few days. When operating on the battery, the touchpad exhibits some quirks that make this P:C extremely hard to use as a portable laptop.
The mouse on the touchpad hangs up intermittently, sometimes for several seconds. This erratic behavior makes using the mouse terribly difficult.
When scrolling using the mouse on a vertical scroll bar, the right click menu for the desktop keeps popping up. I must move the mouse away from the scroll bar, left click to get rid of the right click menu, and return the mouse to the scroll bar. Sometimes this behavior is constant when scrolling through a long page, making it impossible to use the mouse to scroll.
So like many V570 owners I encountered the same problem where the laptop does not turn on anymore. I'm not on warranty anymore so I couldn't send it in to Lenovo either. Based on what I read, this issue appears when the laptop goes to sleep (closing down the lid when the laptop is on, or letting the laptop sleep when you're not using it for a while).
So I was thinking, "Hmm it doesn't make sense to replace the motherboard just because the hard drive is on sleep". Why not just pull out the hard drive and memory cards and put it back in? So I unscrewed the smaller cover on the back of the laptop and unscrewed the hard drive (one screw), pulled out the hard drive (slide it backwards and pull out) and also pulled out the two memory cards (that are on the right side).
Then I simply put the hard drive back in and the memory cards back in place. Screwed the cover back on there and it TURNED ON!
First thing I did after that was go into the Power Options in Windows 7 (just search "Power Options" from the start menu) and went to "Choose what closing the lid does" and changed all the selections that said "Sleep" or "Hibernate" to either "Shutdown or Do Nothing".
NOTE: The down side is that you probably can't Sleep or Hibernate your laptop anymore. I'm trying to see if there's a BIOS update for this but the Lenovo Support website is not loading at the moment.
The UPSIDE is your laptop WORKS and you're not gonna be spending $$$ for an unecessary "motherboard' that they say they'll replace.
I recently got a U310 ideapad, and I am trying to run a Linux LiveCD that I put on my USB drive using uinetbootin. On the idea pad I made the settings for the BIOS have the boot order with USB FDD and USB Drives on the top. Even with fitting fn+F12 I am still not getting any success with the boot from USB.
How to boot from a Lenovo recovery disk for Windows 7 on a USB driven DVD drive? The laptop is currently running Linux so can't run from within the operating system. The BIOS utility doesn't recognise the drive no matter what I select in the boot menu (USB CD, USB FDD or USB HDD) and the F12 boot utility also doesn't recognise the drive. Incidently, F12 does recognise the Linux USB drive so I know this works. The external drive is a Leicke DVD R/RW DVD.
The reason for wanting to boot from the Windows 7 recivery drive is to reinstall Win 7 on a new install, dual boot Linux (Mint), then install iTunes on WIn 7so I can sync my iPhone, and run everything else under Linux. I've tried using a Win emulator under Linux but unsuccessfully.
I have a brand new z510 notebook, and I need to do a clean install of windows 8.1. Problem is that I can't seem to boot from CD or USB. I have entered the bios, and although the DVD rom drive works, and it shown correctly in BIOS, it does NOT allow me to add it to the boot list. Also, there is an option called 'Boot From USB' I enable that, and still the USB boot does not show up in the boot list. The only thing I have in the boot list is the 'Windows Boot Manager' and it lists the name of my drive.
I thought that maybe secure boot was the issue, but I tried disabling this, and is still doesn't let me do what I want. I just paid $800 for a top of the line laptop, and I can't even boot from a cdrom. Every computer I have had since the 1980s have allowed me to do just that without trouble.
I just did a OneKeyRecovery to reset the notebook (original Win8); after that I did an upgrade to Win8.1; now the notebook boots (reboot/shutdown) very slow, booting takes >5 min; when it's up it's quite ok.
Assume an issue with the SSD cache, SSD is not visible (device manager etc,), reinstalled smartcache, smartcache doesn't find an SSD....
I bought lenovo z510 recently and liked its performance. But from last few days am facing issue when windows 8.1 boots .ie., when i power on my laptop i see "lenovo log" for more than 15 minutes and sometimes windows doesnt start at all. I have to restart few times manually with power button to see the windows screen.
Initially i thought it is due to windows update, but even after I turned off update, am facing same issue. My laptop is hardly a month old and it is very frustrating to see this happening .
I've been following instruction on this link to create bootable windows installation usb thumb drives [URL] .... And it's been working fine with usb 2.0 thumb drives on the X1C (old ver). However, for some reason it won't work with usb 3.0 thumb drives.
I've tried several, but everytime I select the thumb drive on boot selection, the screen blinks and goes back to boot selection. I'm assuming it's not reading my boot information. It works fine on usb 2.0 thumb drives.
The first black screen with the Microsoft logo loads but afterwards I just get stuck in a black screen with the cursor which I can move around but nothing more.
So, my solution was to get into Safe Mode. Unfortunately although I don't have a password when Win7 boot, I'm asked for one in Safe Mode. The thing is neither the keyboard, nor the touchpad work so I cannot get past the login screen.
The keyboard works perfectly in BIOS, but not in the Windows login screen for Safe Mode.
I have a y410p with windows 8 on it. I recently installed a debian based linux alongside windows so I can dual boot them.This required me to also add Grub to the the disk. But grub was in legacy mode and i had problems booting up win8. So, I used boot-repair to try to fix it, but it seems to have gotten worse.
The touchpad shows only as a mouse, and scrolling & the fn+f6 option do not worked, I had it on win 8&7, worked on neither of them. I couldn't find a dedicated driver for it, and I couldn't find a post that states whether this touch pad should have those options working or it was never intended to.
I recently purchased a Lenovo y510p for college. I do not use it that often because i have a nice desktop at home and have not moved yet. When i do use it, it freezes 3-5 minutes after the start up. during the freeze i can move the mouse but when i click on anything nothing happens. When i mouse to the corners the normal windows 8 thing dont pop up. After it gets done freezing for a few minutes evertying i clicked on or did during the freeze pops up really fast.
I believe i have updated all my drivers. i unistalled mcafee and really only have a few things installed liked Steam, and Final Fantasy 14: A Real Reborn. Sometimes after the freeze windowns stops responding and i have to hard reset. At that poing i somtimes get stuck in a boot loop and just have to keep resetting till it fixes itself. I also installed chrome.
I dont want to have to reistall windows or do a factory reset. i do have a warrenty but i start school in 2 days and cant really ship this anywhere. I dont have the serial number with me but i have the laptop with the duel graphics.
I have a Lenovo G510 and Windows 8.1. I can´t use keyboard and mouse at the same time. When i typing the mousepad locks. I guess this is a feature but I wan´t it turned off but I don´t know how to do that.
I have tested with the drivers for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8, listed here: [URL] ....
I then even tried with installing the driver for Windows 8 from: [URL] ....
But when I got through the installation process the "installation program" says the driver couldn´t be installed.
I tried with the advice in this thread: [URL] ....
but I have synaptics 7.5 and not 7.4. I also tried fixing with the register but didn´t find the entry PalmKms. I did do find other entries with Palm.
I see this as a major problem since it makes me completely unable to use any program that require simultaneously use of the keyboard and mouse. Therefore I guess that must be a solution for this?
Just bought an Aspire ES1-511. Not my first Windows 8.1 laptop, but my first with UEIF firmware.
I've been trying to boot Driveimage from CD to do an offline backup, and guess what, it wouldnt recognise the CD as bootable. Fixed that by setting the boot type to "Legacy" in the BIOS and it boots fine.
My problem is that the mouse doesnt work after booting from the CD. Watching the behaviour of the mouse, it powers up when I press the power button, but powers off immediately the POST completes.
If booting Windows from the HD, power to USB is restored as soon as windows loads to the lock screen.
i recently upgraded my g500 from windows 8 to windows to 8.1. But ever since then, my mouse does not work and the keyboard only works after standby. I tried to restore to factory defaults but that hasnt worked.
