    All of the Lenove Thinkvantage programs are no longer loading at startup. (T61, XPSP3)Would it be best if I just downloaded the Lenovo software from the site and then installed it.Any help would be appreciated.They're still on the drive, they were not removed, they do not launch at start.

    i think at this point it would be more productive for you to reinstall the OS from scratch.

    I own a Lenovo Ideapad Y560p. It hasvarious Lenovo programs pre-installed: Slidenav, Onekey Theater, Lenovo Splitscreen,Lenovo DirectShare and so on. Almost all of these programs have stopped working and will not start if I double-click their icons.If they do work, I can't see them working. For instance, the Slidenav bar lights up briefly on startup, but no Slidenav action available at all. The same with Onekey Theater, etc. OneKey Recovery still works. So does YouCam.I must have switched off or removed something in the software, perhaps in the system software, by accident. Or perhaps my Windows 7 O/S is packing up. How can I get my Lenovo pre-installed programs working again?

    Chances are high that this is a malware file. Either you uninstalled the malware program or your antivirus/antispyware program did. In any case, a reference was left to the file in Startup. You can remove the reference by managing your Startup. However,
    since you are still experiencing problems with Windows that is a sign that your computer is heavily infected and/or the system has been damaged by the malware. You can try going through the very thorough scanning steps at the link below. If that cleans your
    computer and it then works correctly, if any entries pointing to malware files (like the error in your Subject line) remain you can remove them.

    http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/page2.html#Removing_Malware

    Manage Startup (Make sure you do the malware scanning first!):

    (for XP) StartRunmsconfig [enter]

    This brings up the System Configuration Utility. Look on the Startup tab and find the probable culprit. Uncheck the box next to its name, Apply and OK out. You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do you'll get a dialog saying you've used
    the Utility. Just tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".

    How to Troubleshoot By Using the Msconfig Utility in Windows XP -

    Thank you for your reply. You are absolutely right of course. It was just a copy-error. Actually I specified root=LABEL=root, which should be okay. I think syslinux had a problem with /boot being a separate partition. So I switched to grub which i working perfectly fine now, despite the config is a mess as you indicated. I will try rEFInd, thank you for the link.So the problem is solved and I am still not sure why. Probably because of the new gpt table. Thank you for your help, I´ll mark this as solved.

Does anyone out there know how to get rid of these programs at start up (such as DellTouch programmable keys, IntelliPoint, Direct CD Wizard, Create SB Live!, etc.)?

    Send me an email and I will send you the fix for this. It will also boost your system resources.
    The apps that you show at the end of your message are all necessary and need to be in the start up group. You cannot disable them (DellTouch programmable keys, Intellipoint,

    Hi,
    1. From which website you are trying to download Adobe Flash Player and Fix it’s?
    2. Do you get any error message while downloading?
    3. Were there any changes made on the computer prior to the issue?
    4. Do you have a printer installed on your computer? If yes, what is the make and model of the printer?

    Method 1:
    I would suggest you to boot the computer in Safe Mode with Networking and check if the issue occurs. If the issue does not occur in Safe Mode with Networking then you may try to perform Clean Boot to find which startup item or service is causing the issue.
    Step 1:
    To restart in Safe Mode with networking enabled:
    a) Restart your computer.
    b) When you see the computer manufacturer's logo, press and
    hold the F8 key.
    c) On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to
    highlight Safe Mode with Networking, and then press Enter.
    d) Log on to your computer with a user account that has
    administrator rights.

    Step 2:
    I would suggest you to set your computer in Clean Boot state and check if the same issue occurs.

    By setting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows XP:

    My G500 Lenovo Windows 8 computer will not start. The specs of my computer: 4 GB of RAM, 300 GB + 7 GB(Cloud from Microsoft) + 25 GB (Lenovo) of memory. It also has approximately eight hours of battery, and powers an i3 Intel Processor.Problem: My computer used to start in 5 - 10 seconds, but since last week this has been happening; Everytime I try to turn on my computer, it literally takes four to five minutes to start up. I've checked task manager and it says that the last BIOS boot time was 244.1 seconds. But that was last week. Conditions got way more severe today, you know that spinning circle on the lenovo start screen, THERE IS NONE! I've tried pressing the novo button to access Bios, and it literally doesn't access it. What happens is that there's this Lenovo logo, and its just a black screen except for that logo. A normal windows 8 computer from my friend starts up in about 3 - 5 seconds, and it has a circle spinning, then it stops, and it gets all bright and fancy. I've tried all sorts of things to fix it, novo button, contact customer support, do the remove battery and AC adapter, and press the power button, and put it back on.Strangeness: Apparently, last night, I was able to start my computer, and I was able to boot correctly, and then I tried shutting down and starting up a couple times. To my surprise, it took only a few seconds for both, so I thought the problem was fixed. But nope!Major Problem: I can't get past the "Lenovo" logo at all. So I can't uninstall or download new drivers, download programs, or use some sort of a thing to process programs.URGENT: I'd like to know at least what you think or what you know to fix this, I'll have to use this computer tomorrow MANDATORY , otherwise I will not be able to get anything done. Also, don't post "google it", I've done it.

Eventually it will BSOD, the exact message I do not remember but something like a 'system process or thread failed to run'. The crash dump fails to write to disk and it reboots and hangs at POST. Hard powering down and powering back up lets it boot fine.At first I thought it was a bad intel rapid storage driver, but I am now using the latest one from the intel website and it occurred today. It also is using the latest drivers for other devices from the Lenovo website or intel website.This has happened with 2 differnt harddrives, both function perfectly fine in other machines. I've run memtest and swapped out the RAM with other sticks. I am using the latest BIOS for this machine and it is a relatively clean install of Windows.Is this likely a hardware issue?

    hi ranbon13,

    CCleaner is known for cleaning the system Registry Deep, and just one Entry there is very crucial for Windows Boot System, Also if your only running the cleaner option Deselect the Applicationsrooted to your Windows like Antivirus, regedit, and other applications that installs deep in to Windows.
    My suggestion before you run CC cleaner again Create a restore point. so if anything goes wrong you have a stepback option.

    Good to know your system is back up,

    DB:2.73:Windows Xp Startup Error pa


    Hello Everyone,
    This morning, while booting up my Lenovo T61 laptop with Windows XP for another day of miscellaneous computer use, I was stopped by the black screen with multiple boot options for Windows detected an error due to recently downloaded programs. These are your
    common boot options, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Lateste Good Configuration, and Start Windows Normally. Not knowing what the problem was, I chose Start Windows Normally.
    So Windows does begin to start, it fades to the loading page where it shows the Windows logo and the loading status bar, well then that page freezes and then changes to a Blue Screen explaining the error even more for about 3 or so seconds. There is also
    a stop code on the page, but I am unable to read all of it because the screen disappears after 3 seconds. The page it sends you to is the black screen with the boot options.
    EVERY option sends me to the blue screen which then sends me back to the beginning.
    I even managed once to get into Lenovo Recovery and Rescue, hoping I could easily do a System Recovery. The option is there, it's clickable, but does NOT do anything after being clicked or selected.
    The system was working fine last night and the last program I downloaded were some updates for Apple iTunes and Quicktime.

    If anyone could please help me, I would appreciate it greatly. If anyone wanted to know how I managed to post this, I'm on a separate laptop with my Lenovo XP sitting next to me still showing all of these symptoms.

    You can burn them to the CD but they will not run automatically. You will have to run the install program.

    Some of the drivers may be provided in a compressed form. You will need to uncompress them by running the downloaded file. Once uncompressed, create a folder and then burn this to the CD.

    Read the instructions that is associated with the downloaded file and it will describe how to use it.

    It could be a Silverlight issue so you could try unistallintg it, rebooting your mac and installing silverlight again via the sky go website as you should prompt you to install it again. Be aware though that doing this will remove your mac as a registered device and you might have to wait a month before you can watch something again if doing this fixes this problem.

    I hope someone can help. I have a 3 month old SL410 which was working fine until about 3 weeks ago. Somewhere inthe recent course of events, I selected an option to let aWindows Wireless program manage my wireless connections instead of the Lenovo Access Connection program. Now, when I am home and connected to my home wireless router, my computer constantly hangs up, programs are "Not Responding", pointer hangs up -on and on and on. At one point I could not even boot up to my desk top. I finally got booted up in safe mode and had to end all Lenovo Access Connections processes through the Task Manager. I have spent hours upon hours trying to figure out how to get my Lenovo Access Connections running my wireless connections instead of the Windows program. But, every time I start Lenovo Access it never loads up. If I do not close it out through Task Manager, my computer will not boot up when I start it next. At one point I took it to Best Buy Geek Squad (very desperate) and when they booted it up - it started with no problem and surfed and functioned brilliantly. When I returned home it went back to the poor performance. FYI: my wife's Sony VAIO is connected to the same wireless connection and she has no issues. HELP ME PLEASE.

    Hi,

    Can you first try the following:
    1. Turn the computer off and remove the AC adapter and battery
    2. Press and hold the power button for 20secs to drain any power on the unit.
    3. Plug-in the AC adapter and try to turn the computer ON and observe.

    If this doesn't work I'm afraid you will need to contact Lenovo US and send the unit for service or have it looked at a local computer repair store in India.

    Regards

    Original title: Lenovo SL500 Windows Vista Crashed with STOP error and won't start up

    Hello peoples,
    I just installed an iMicro Bluetooth Adapter onto my computer, and then I felt like restarting my computer. When I turned it on, it was loading liek regular until right after the Vista loading screen, when the Blue Screen of Death (a blue screen with an error
    message on it) flashed for about 1/2 a second and then restarted my computer. Then it asked me if I wanted to load Startup Repair or just Start WIndows Normally, and I chose Start WIndows Normally, but the same thing happened, so when the computer restarted
    again, i chose Startup repair. It said if I inserted an external device into my computer, for me to remove it. But I didn't have any external devices in my computer at the time! I already took out the iMicro Adapter! So when my comptuer restarted again, I
    pressed the Lenovo Care button, and loaded up Lenovo Rescue and Recovery 4. (That's where I am now, typing away in the Opera browser.) I tried to find help, but couldn't find anythign useful so far. I installed many drivers, updates, fixes, etc. But none did
    anything to remove the Blue Screen of Death. Right now, after 7 hours, I really frustrated, and this is my last hope! (I don't want to rescue my hard drive and then reinstall, because I have over 250 paid applications and over 270 free programs on my computer!
    Plus, over 350 iPad apps, a few of which are paid! Oh, and 700 iBooks!)
    Please help! I'm really desperate right now, and any help would be appreciated!

    DB:2.64:Lenovo Thinkvantage Toolbox - Faq sp


    What is the purpose of the Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox application?

    Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is a support application that is intended to help you get more out of your Think system. At its core are diagnostics and system information that have been used on Think systems for more than a dozen years. The new application combines these traditional tools with new messaging capabilities that allow Lenovo to send you support and other messages that are meant to prevent issues, resolve problems and improve your Think PC experience.

    How does Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox work?

    Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox periodically checks system health during idle time; the default is once a month, but can be set by the user under the Settings link in the upper right hand corner of the application. The application uses a Toolbar icon to notify you if a condition occurs for which your attention is required or recommended.

    Additionally, if permitted by the user, Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox synchs once a day to Lenovo for support and other messages. Included are contextual messages of products and services that are intended to improve your experience. No offer messages present without your permission and no personal information is gathered.

    Does Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox run in the background?

    No. Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox only launches when you press the Blue Button on ThinkPads running Windows 7 systems, click on the Toolbar icon, or select the application from the start menu. Additionally, the application runs a periodic, scheduled health check to make sure that the PC is running properly, and synchs daily with Lenovo for support and other messages relevant to your PC.

    Why does Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox place an icon on my Windows task bar?

    The Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox icon is intended to alert you to conditions for which your attention is required or recommended. It also is used by Lenovo to alert you of support and other messages if you have permitted the synch with Lenovo.

    Can I run the Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox without permitting the daily synch with Lenovo?

    Yes, all System Health, System Security and Diagnostics items will work without granting permission to synch with Lenovo – except, of course, items that require a connection.

    How do I get rid of a red exclamation point or other alert, and turn the application green?

    Each status tab beneath the System Health, System Security and Lenovo Support pillars of Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox includes an Ignore link that will ignore an issue and turn the system green. You can re-activate the alerts whenever you want.

    Is Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox adware?

    No. Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is first and foremost a support application. The diagnostics, system information and other tools have been a part of the Think support experience since 1997. New tools such as the Performance and Configuration History or the Drive Space Manager are examples of how the support elements of the application continue to improve. Other new features include support messaging and alerting, which is Lenovo’s way of communicating information to users that solves a specific issue or improve the overall Think experience. All messages – support or otherwise – can be easily dismissed by clicking on the Dismiss link.

    Does Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox collect any personal information about me?

    During normal use, LTT does not collect any personal information. You may choose to give us your personal information for example your name, address, email id, phone number to complete a warranty replacement or purchase a new hardware. The data collected will be limited to the information needed to complete the transaction or services offered.

    Does Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox launch on startup?

    No. Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is not a startup item. You can verify this by doing the following:

    If you are running XP:

    Click on Start
    Click on Run
    Type “msconfig” without the quotes
    Click on the Startup tab
    You can verify that Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is not a start-up item.

    If you are running Vista or Windows 7:

    Click on Windows icon in lower left hand corner
    Click on All Programs
    Click on Accessories
    Click on Run

    Type “msconfig” without the quotes
    Press Return
    Click on the Startup tab
    You can verify that Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox is not a start-up item.

    How do I get rid of the Toolbar icon on the Windows Task Bar?

    If you are running XP, Vista or Windows:

    Right click on the Task Bar
    Select Toolbars
    Deselect Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox.
    The Toolbar icon disappears

    How do I delete the Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox application?

    If you are running XP:

    Left click on Start
    Select Control Panel
    Select Add or Remove Programs
    Select Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox
    Click on Remove.

    If you are running Vista or Windows 7:

    Click on the Windows icon in the lower left hand corner
    Select Control Panel
    Select Programs and Features
    Highlight Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox
    Select the Uninstall button at the top of the page

    How does a Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox know what messages are relevant for my system?

    Processing of all Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox messages is completed on your PC. Here is how it works. Lenovo develops a message that it believes will be relevant to certain users under certain sets of circumstances. Information about this message is placed in a manifest (a collection of many messages). When the PC synchs with Lenovo, it collects the manifests based on some large granule information (all T60s, for example). The PC sifts through the manifest and, if a message is found to be relevant to the current state of the system, the PC synchs to Lenovo to pull the message and display to the user.

    The Toolbox application had been working fine on my x201 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Whenever I started it I got a UAC request and gave the administrator's password and the Toolbox started and work.This evening I got a notice that a new version was available and I installed it (version 6.0.5514.55). Now when I try to use the ToolBox it shows its splash screen for a while and then puts up a message box saying "Administrative privledges are required" with an OK button. When I press the OK button the ToolBox is gone.How do I get it working again without having to login as the administrator on the machine -- something I try to avoid as much as possible?The update did not create a restore point so I can just roll it back.

    Go tohttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspxand run Autoruns and click on the
    Everything Tab. Look for the specified dll files and when you findit uncheck the box to stopit from starting at startup. Check the whole list as there may be more than one entry. When done, click OK and reboot. The message should be gone.
    If that doesn't work, try a clean boothttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135. If the problem goes away then it's just a
    matter of tracking down the culprit causing the problem. Follow the procedures in the article. Once found, delete, remove, deactivate, or uninstall it. Once done be sure to reset Vista back to normal status as explained in the procedures. If the problem
    occurs in clean mode then just restore the system to normal status and reboot - this solution is not going to work.

    You may be infected with malware. Try to run anti-malware programs (in safe mode with networking ifnecessary).To fix this problem (if it is a problem) download,install, and run the following two
    programs:http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.phpandhttp://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html.
    You may also want to try a free trial of Pandasoft (http://www.pandasecurity.com/usa/homeusers/solutions/global-protection/).
    Before downloading pandasoft, uninstall whatever anti-virus program you are currently using (because installing and running two at the same time can cause conflicts, freezes, and all sorts of problems). Once you've uninstalled your current AV program, download,
    install, update, and scan using Pandasoft. I think you might be amazed at how much it finds that the other software missed. Once complete, uninstall pandasoft and re-install your current AV program (unless you decide to switch which I did when I first tried
    it about 4 years ago). You may also want totry the new, free Microsoft Security Essentialshttp://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Microsoft-Security-Essentials-Download-131683.html
    (with the same caveat that only ONE AV program can be installed and running on your system at any one time). You may also want to try the free Avira at:http://www.free-av.com/
    and Avast at: http://www.avast.com/index. Reboot after completing all the scans. You may also want to try the free OneCare athttp://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm
    and let it run all the options (except the registry cleaner) because that’s good maintenance (it will take some time to complete but can be done in the background).

    I hope this helps. Please keep me posted.

    I have dell remote accsess, skype and windows live messanger that start at startup. I dont use them right away. How can I have them not start at startup?

    DB:2.63:Changeing Programs That Start At Startup ca

    Here are a number of ways to make the changes, depending upon how deep you want to delve into what is starting when you switch on:

    1. Remove unwanted programs that start up when you switch on the computer by downloading Microsoft’s
    Autoruns from here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902 It doesn’t need installing. Run it and go to the Logon
    Tab and remove the tick alongside the programs you don’t want to start.

    2. Alternatively, download the free Quick Startup from here
    http://www.glarysoft.com/qs.html?tag=download
    When installing the program, be aware of the ‘foistware’ Toolbar add-on and when you've finished using it, uninstall it as it has served its purpose.
    Not only does it check for the necessity of startup programs but it can identify
    ‘nasties‘. To disable (recommended action) an entry, remove the tick alongside its name.
    If you are unsure about an entry and want to know more about it, highlight it and then click
    ‘More information’ at the bottom of the screen. To delete an entry from the list (it doesn't uninstall the program), highlight it and click Delete in the left pane.

    3. Lastly, the simplest way is to use the built-in system configuration utility, although its primary function is to troubleshoot start up errors. Open a Run window (Windows Logo key+R),
    type msconfig and press Enter. Go to the Startup Tab and remove the tick alongside those you want to remove from starting. Click Apply, OK, etc. and restart the computer. When it restarts, put a tick in ‘Don‘t show this again‘ as you‘re effectively
    doing a selective start up.

    Yes it is broken since Vista. Shift to bypass autologon also doesn't work. Shift to bypass loading startup folder items also doesn't work. Instead of fixng it, it's been likethis for 4 years now without a hotfix or service pack fix.Then MS willpublish

    I went into my BIOS and basically assigned every free IRQ to my PCI cards and yet again changed the slot that the card sits on. Everything is back to normal and I think I might know why, which is where my question comes in.

    Thankfully, XP allows me to use the card without rebooting. If I do reboot, I have a feeling 3 things will happen.

    . A pop up window will appear at the top of my screen that allows me to control certain aspects of the card.

    2. A program will appear in my task bar (white with blue headphones) which allows me to run Creative Programs.

    3. My CPU will jack up again.

    Because I didn't have to reboot when i re-installed the card, these two programs are not running.

    My question is, how do I stop those two programs from loading at start up? I've closed them down in the past after a reboot and it does not help, so obviously something is loading with them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    It is easy to get rid of the error message by doing something like disabling the startup item in msconfig (if you caneven find it), but I suggest you fix the problem and not just fix the symptom of the problem by just eliminating thestartup message.

    From the Known Issues section of the Fusion 2.0 Release Notes!

    The McAfee anti-virus ISO remains mounted. If you start the installation of McAfee VirusScan Plus, the McAfee ISO remains mounted, which can lead to two problems.

    If you cancel the installation and later try to install the bundled anti-virus again, either by clicking Install when the anti-virus prompt appears, or by selecting Virtual Machine gt; Install McAfee VirusScan Plus, nothing will happen. These commands actually mount the ISO, but leave the launching of the anti-virus installer to the autorun. Because the ISO is already mounted, the autorun is not triggered. To work around this, eject the mounted anti-virus ISO image by selecting Virtual Machine gt; CD/DVD gt; Disconnect CD/DVD. Then select Virtual Machine gt; Install McAfee VirusScan Plus to start the McAfee VirusScan Plus installer again.

    Because the anti-virus ISO image is occupying the virtual CD/DVD drive, if you insert a CD/DVD on your Mac the CD/DVD will not be mounted in the virtual machine, even if you have set the CD/DVD drive to be attached to the virtual machine. To work around this, go to Virtual Machine gt; CD/DVD gt; Use Physical Drive to force mount the disc.

    DB:2.62:Ms Office Other Programs Very Slow Loading jj

    Hi DLC1946,
    Welcome to Windows Vista Answers Forums!
    What are the other affected programs?
    You may also try to perform a clean boot and verify if any of the services or startup items is causing this issue. To perform a clean boot we will have to run System Configuration Utility.

    To perform clean boot, follow the steps:
    1. Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press
    ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

    2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
    3. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the
    Load Startup Items check box.
    4. Click the Services tab, click to select the
    Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.
    5. Click Apply and OK.
    6. When you are prompted, click Restart.
    7. After the computer starts verify if you are getting the same issue.
    If your issue is resolved after performing Clean Boot, then follow the steps mentioned in the following KB article to narrow down the exact source.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
    Also, see the section on how to return your computer to a Normal startup mode by following the steps under “Reset the computer to start as usual."
    You may also use Disk Cleanup to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your hard disk to free up disk space and help your computer run faster. It removes temporary files, empties the Recycle Bin, and removes a variety of
    system files and other items that you no longer need.
    1.Open Disk Cleanup by clicking the Start button, clicking
    All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking
    System Tools, and then clicking Disk Cleanup.
    2.In the Disk Cleanup Options dialog box, choose whether you want to clean up your own files only or all of the files on the computer. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or
    provide confirmation.
    3. If the Disk Cleanup: Drive Selection dialog box appears, select the hard disk drive (C :) that you want to clean up, and then click OK.
    4. Click the Disk Cleanup tab, and then select the check boxes for the files you want to
    delete.
    5. When you finish selecting the files you want to delete, click
    OK, and then click Delete files to confirm the operation. Disk Cleanup proceeds to remove all unnecessary files from your computer.

    Check if you are able to fix the issue.
    For more information refer the following link for Deleting files using Disk Cleanup:

    DB:2.62:Stuck On Windows Vista With Lenovo G550? 3a


    Hi, I am experiencing a problem which is making me get really mad at Lenovo Customer Service and Microsoft at the same time. I am using a G550 with 1.8GHz Celeron CPU and 2GB DDR RAM with 250GB HDD and G4500 GraphicsHere my Problem:I was quite happy when buying my laptop, and couldnt wait to install Windows 7 on it. As I did so, I figured out very soon that there are major issues with Windows 7 on my laptop, and I was not able to run any of my software. Games wouldnt run, the programs would crash and I felt fooled in a way. That was why I then thought of XP, which was a very simple OS, but at least would run all of my software on this Notebook that I had just bought. So I installed XP and I could not find all the drivers I needed, I was not able to run my WIreless LAN-Network and in total XP is a 9 year old piece of software, which has many security issues, and wont be suiting a new Laptop in this price category. I mean I spent some 500 dollars on this notebook, and then I end up running XP on it? No thanks!So I moved to Vista, which was my last hope, and which would at least run my applications, not crash and updatable. And at least I could really use the ease of this notebook on Vista. But one thing that really makes me crazily mad is, that I happen to have the worst performance with Windows Vista. I run SP2, the start procress needs like 40seconds without logon. Another additional 20 seconds for loading all the autostart programs (which are just CA Anti Virus and the usual system stuff). Do I have to be stuck on Windows Vista forever? I am experiencing so many problems with this operating system, but somehow its just more convenient than old dusty XP and new crashy windows7. Is it really this bad, that after spending hundreds of dollars on a new laptop I have to stick ot vista, in order to stay up to date and use my old programs which windows 7 just wont run?I think its bit of an Ironie that Microsoft does not solve their incompatibility issues with lenovo laptops, and that Lenovo does not care about the problems their customers experience.I was very well surprised when I bought this notebook until I realized the problems like:Disk turning on and off al the timeIncompatibility with Win7Driver problems on old OS like XPI think lenovo really ows us a statement, and Microsoft should really tell us what we are going to purchase before we buy it. Money doesnt grow on trees and I am not willing to spend a lot of money on OS and Notebooks that later wont run correctly.Whats your opinion on this?Mahdi

    DB:2.61:Recently Reimaged W7 Fails To Start, Startup Repair Stuck as


    Hi everybody,

    I have a Lenovo y570 running Windows 7 and it's about three years old. In the past month or so, the computer has been having major issues. In mid-March, I used the Lenovo-given onekey factory reset to reset my computer, but last week problems started popping
    up again. My uni ITS reimaged my computer this past Friday and I reinstalled a few old programs (Office, Skype, Dropbox, etc) and some Windows updates. After not using it over the weekend, I turn it on tonight and Windows fails to start. I'm given the option
    of either starting Windows normally or running Startup repair.

    In running Startup repair, Windows loads all the files successfully and the Microsoft corporation logo comes and goes, but then the screen goes black. After about 10 minutes, the Startup repair page loads without the actual text. Basically I'm starting at
    a blue W7 background with a cursor but no option to do anything. After waiting about 15 minutes on this page without anything showing up, I restarted the computer, repeated the process, and arrived back at the blank Startup repair screen.

    I'm not very tech savvy so advice is appreciated. As this computer was just reimaged two days ago with safe programs installed, I don't believe the issue is virus- or malware-related. The problem might be physical, but I'm not sure how to check that. I'm
    hoping that I don't have to buy a new laptop, but I suppose it may come down to that.

    Additional information
    - No W7 installation disk
    -Warranty expired
    - No option to boot into safe mode from normal startup, but I did get into advanced boot options with f8
    - Safe mode fails to start -- Windows gets stuck loading CLASSPNP.SYS for a while, then the screen flashes and I'm right back to the "Windows failed to start..." screen

    EDIT: On the third try for Startup repair, after approximately one hour the startup repair box actually showed up and started running. It's still running now, and I'll keep watching it to see if anything happens.

    This suggests to me though that the issue is hard drive-related, perhaps? My computer is 3 years old and has a not-so-good hard drive (Hitachi Travelstar 5K500.B HTS545050B9A300,
    500 GB 5400 rpm 500GB SATA)so the hard drive might just be slowing down to the point of breaking

Note, my external drive is labled as C: - When I try installing Rescue and Recovery 4.2 it says "There is not enough space on drive C:\ to extract this package." Which makes sense, when my external hard drive isn't plugged into my laptop. When I plug in my external hard drive, it continues to extract the files but then I get an error message just as the Install Shield Wizard is about to finish: "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed."- When I try installing Windows Installer I get the error message: "Not enough storage is available to process this command"My warrant is expired. No idea what else I should try. Windows Update doesn't work. I have trouble installing programs (ex. Chrome).

    There are several reasons of troubles IMHO.1. Where did you recover the laptop to the factory stage from?2. Since I don't know the volumes and letters of x200 partitions did you remeber them? I think one of the problem now are matted partition letters. I think the SERVICE partition should be S: or w/o letter in factory version, SW_Preload - C;, Lenovo - Q:.Do you have external Lenovo Recovery media with WinPE environment? Do you have Factory Recovery media on bootable externel device? Do you have access to the partition with archives of images for Factory Recovery Disks creating (I think it's Q: )?You can't install the second copy of RR on one machine so you see the such strange error message: "There is not enough space on drive C:\ to extract this package."Also, what does your external drive consists?

    DB:2.61:Loading At Startup fk



    To remove unnecessary programs from loading automatically at startup in XP

    I can use "services.msc"When given choices "automatic, manual, or disable",
    if I choose "manual" will that stop the program from
    loading at start up? Or must I select "disable"? WBC

    DB:2.61:Loading At Startup fk

    Unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing, do NOT use msconfig to disable services. It is possible to disable services from msconfig that will prevent Windows from starting.

    Always control services from the Services control panel, services.msc.

    Auto - service starts at boot. Best for services that are often used.

    Manual - service is available but only starts when requested. SOme apps are inept at starting services and may fail if the needed service is not running.

    Disabled - service will not start.

    DB:2.60:After System Restore Windows Programs Not Loading, And Other Issues! 3m


    To preface this I have no interest in keeping vista on here I have a CD with windows7 setup on it that I would like to install either on a new partition or over the exsisting one but no clue how to do this right, and when I tried booting up from the CD it gave me an error, so I can't do the setup that way, however I did get a version of windows xp (hiren's minixp) to boot from a thumbdrive, however I could not get my wireless internet to work on it. however thru ethernet it did, but need wifi!) I need a computer for tomorrow morning for my new job orientation is done thru a website and I need a computer to use at thehotel (im out of town) so its not an option taking it to a repair shop tomorrow (its sunday and all), or sending back to lenovo plus its outta warranty.Help! I am very novice at best with techy stuff so I will try to explain this the best that I can. I've had a lenovo N500 Laptop running Vista Home Edition for a couple years now. It did not come with any recover cd's or anything like that. It was starting to run slow, so I figured I'd do the old trusty Factory Restore and start fresh, always did the trick on other computers I owned with windows. Well I went through the whole process of restoring it, and did the initial system setup and naming. When it loaded my desktop for the first time it was all downhill from there. There is no IE installed, no default programs would open, instead I got this error message (example when opening Windows Mail).C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\WinMail.exeThe specified path does not exsist.Check the patch, and then try again.It does this for every program. Here's the thing the only C:\ Drive that shows up is assigned to removable disk. Here are the current labels for my default Drives.Lenovo(QServiceV003(SSW_Preload(DSo I think the issues possibly that when it was reformatted it labeled the drive a different letter, so it's trying to pull the files from the C drive as a path,. but it needs to be q or s or d or something. Keep in mind this is my very novice theory.

    for wireless issue:
    have you checked device managemer for unknown/non-installed devices? you may need to install drivers for your adapters.try to press f8 when you see lenovo logo, then load "safe mode with networking", check if the adapters work.

    can you tell us what error you got when you tried to install win7? also, some of applications doesn't come with preloaded systems so you need to install them later ( as windows mail, msn messenger )

    DB:2.60:Z565 Slowness Problem fs


    Since mid-December my laptop has been running very slow when dealing with any sort of game, the laptop is about 3.5 months old now. I know it's probably not a gaming laptop but I'm having lag and choppiness issues even in simple flash games. Since then, I have used the One Key Recovery, from initial point, to start over twice (because I thought I messed up the updates the first time). I don't think it has to do with my internet connection because my brother plays the new Star Wars game perfectly fine, it runs very smoothly and with no lag. I also don't have any issues when opening up new pages, though after the recovery, loading has gotten just SLIGHTLY slower. I don't run many programs at once and I don't think I have any unused programs running in the background. I only have Panda Cloud Antivirus running. Every now and then I run CCleaner and Combofix (as told by a friend) in case of problems. I have fully updated all the Windows updates after recovery and updated the driver from the AMD site. The lag and choppiness is the same as before the recovery. I don't know what the problem may be and I don't know where to look. I am still under warranty but I'd like to see if there's a fix before having to deal with that.Any advice?

    DB:2.60:Z565 Slowness Problem fs

    No, I haven't, I'll try that tonight. My brother also connects using wireless and it runs fine on his end. Also, I don't have problems with watching streams live so I don't think it's the internet connection, but I will try the cable.

    DB:2.60:Programs Not In System Startup 9f


    I have a Thinkpad T530, Windows 7 64 bit. I use 2 utility programs which require system access (that is, when you click on them you get a user access prompt), WinPatrol from BillP Studios and MalwareBytes Pro. Both these systems are supposed to run at system startup. Neither system does so. WinPatrol is in the startup menu but doesn't initiate at system startup; I have to start it manually.I just upgraded MalwareBytes Pro to version 2. Version 1.x ran at startup normall. Version 2 doesn't come up at startup and isn't even in the startup list, although I configured it to run at Windows startup (that is a config option).Is there something in the Lenovo configuration that is preventing these programs from starting automatically?? How do I change it? It's annoying to have to start WinPatrol manually. Having to start MalwareBytes manually would be extremely dangerous; it must be on at all times. Advice on how to fix this would be most appreciated.The reason I think it's a Lenovo issue is that I run the identical 2 programs on a heavily modified HP Pavilion (replaced a defective hard drive, new one lacks the HP software, just has Windows). Both programs start with Windows, but not on the Lenovo. Please tell me how to fix this.







    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    DB:2.60:Programs Not In System Startup 9f

    There was nothing in the Event Log that even mentioned the program that wasn't starting. I decided to set up a task on the scheduler to start the program with privilege, and that has solved the problem.

    Original title: "unable to start bluetooth stack service"
    I get the following message "unable to start bluetooth stack service" and my lenova laptop will not load any programs - the laptop just hangs up --will not connect to the internet

    DB:2.60:Receiving Error Message Unable To Start Bluetooth Stack Service And Lenovo Laptop Will Not Load Any Programs. j8

    Hi,

    1. Do you have any Bluetooth device connected to the system?
    2. Have you made any recent software or hardware changes on the system?
    3. Do you receive the same message when you connect to the internet?

    This may happen if the Bluetooth service is not running or the drivers are not installed properly.
    Let’s try the following steps and check if it helps.
    Method 1:
    Verify the status of the Bluetooth service.
    a. Click Start, type services.msc and hit enter.
    b. From the list of items, double click Bluetooth Support Service.
    c. Change the startup type to Automatic and click Start button to start service.
    d. Click Apply and then click ok.
    e. Check if the issue persists.

    Method 2:
    You may try uninstalling the Bluetooth driver currently installed and install the one released by the manufacturer to fix the issue.
    a. Click Start and type in Device Manager in the Start Search and Press
    Enter.
    b. Locate the Bluetooth device.
    c. Right-click on the device and select “Uninstall” to remove the drivers currently installed.
    e. Restart the computer and check if it helps.
    You may also try to download the Bluetooth driver by visiting
    Lenovo website.

    Hope the information helps.
