Try Wondershare MobileGo free trial. After it installs the proper device drivers you should be good to go and under no obligation to buy.

I have a Dell Studio which is about 6 years old. It came initially with Windows 7 and I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate right now. About four days ago my computer stopped recognizing my usb mouse. I would have it plugged in and using it, walk away for a minute, and come back and it wouldn't work. I unplugged and replugged it in a few times and it worked. Then it did it again and wouldn't work no matter what I did, in any of the ports. I tried multiple other mice and usb devices and the computer won't recognize any of them. Finally, I reinstalled windows 7, thinking there was a problem with the registry or something, and it started working again. I went through the hours of updating and reinstalling some of my stuff then this morning the same thing is happening again. It won't recognize devices.

I went to Dell website and updated all my drivers, my bios and chipsets. I've restarted repeatedly. I've checked the USB section on device management and tried to find any problem area but there is none. I've run dell diagnostic and windows diagnostic and all say they can't figure out the problem. I'm stuck. What am I supposed to do? I've tried unplugging the power supply, removing the battery, doing basically everything that came to mind. I really need some help and ideas on how I could fix this. It's really frustrating me. I wiped my computer and went through all those hours of work just for it to mess up again today and I'm very annoyed. Thanks in advance for any help.

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

Hello.

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

What's wrong with it? Any way to make it work as it should work?

Now i face fps drops. the games i used to play on my laptop with old bios, now started lagging. I also can't find the old bios file on support page. kindly advice.

Hi Puneet,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
 
Firstly, Check BIOS? Sometimes a BIOS has fan speed controls.
 
This is normal as the game is running and full GPU is utilized, if the temp increases more than normal.  I suggest you to use the Laptop by placing it on a flat surface for good ventilation.
 
Please go through the below link to understand about Safe Temperature range for CPU?

Recently bought a new Lenovo G580 to replace my old decrepit Toshiba. It worked fine for a couple of days, but suddenly started BSOD-ing as I began to use the laptop more and more.

I have noticed it is more susceptible to BSOD-ing when I am running Bit Torrent. Although it seems to wait until it strikes, luring me into a false sense of security and then crippling me.

I ran BlueScreenView, as I have seen many people mention it on various forums, including this one, and the such and it gave me these results. Sorry if this is not the accepted way of throwing out these results, but I am unsure what I am doing.

Hi there all, Recently I got a Lenovo G580 (2189).Because I need WiDi (wireless display) options I bought a Intel Centrino Advanced-N6230 wireless card. After installing this hardware an error showed up at the startup: error 1802 ... unauthorized etc etc. I did not know about Lenovo - Bios and whitelisting hardware. Anyway this simple question remains. Which Intel Wirelesscard can I use with this laptop in order to work properly.Cause I don't want to hack the bios Cheers,Marlon

A:Lenovo G580 replacing wirelesscard not succesful -...

Hello and welcome,
 
I'm more familiar with ThinkPads, so please double-check anything you read in this post...
 
The problem with the white list is that a wireless card has to have a Lenovo FRU number.  It isn't sufficient to be an Intel XYZ board, it has to be an XYZ with the firmware ( the PCI subsystem ID) modified for Lenovo.  Reputable vendors will list the FRU if the board will play nice with the white list.
 
Take a look at the hardware maintenance manual for the G580, page 102l.  It lists an Intel 6150NX with an FRU # of 20002543.
 
Lenovo G480, G485, G580, G585, G780 Hardware Maintenance Manual (English)
 
As I said, this isn't my field of expertise (if there is one...) but maybe this will at least get you started.

Hello, The Problem:Recently I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS  to my HDD in UEFI mode. Soon I found out that I could not access the BIOS using F2, but F12 allowed selection of boot device. Reinstalling Windows, I found out that the boot menu still had the Ubuntu entry and I still could not access the BIOS. I searched on the web for a solution and before I could manage to find a proper one, I managed to delete both the ubuntu and windows boot manager boot entries, still locked out of bios. This time I could not boot into any OS, could not access bios using f2 nor access boot menu using f12.  The Solution:There was one last hope, during boot I noticed that PXE (Boot via ethernet option was still showing).Note: This solution requires you to update the BIOS. This is a very risky procedure, so proceed with caution. This will also probably void your warranty. If you can access boot menu (F12) and want to regain access to the BIOS (F2), boot into Windows 7. Install a bios update for your laptop (specifically for your laptop) available at The Lenovo Support Site. The oldest BIOS (probably for Windows 7) is preffered. If you donot have access to windows 7, perform step 2 and boot into the created ISO by creating a bootable CD or pendrive. Then goto step 11.If you can't access F12 and F2, cannot boot into OS, but can boot via Ethernet (there should be a message about trying Atheros Ethernet PXE Boot during startup), start from step 1. Perform the following steps on a s... Read more

To fix it, boot into Ubuntu (should be installed on the system), start Terminal and type in the following commands:sudo grub-install
sudo efibootmgr -b 0 -BReboot and F2 should work. BIOS should be accessible through F12>Tab>Setup also. Ubuntu will boot no more but can probably be fixed.

Hi,
My daughters laptop has me baffled. It started with a blank screen issue, which I solved with a system restore. (theres was nothing of importance on the hard drive) I did try taking the battery out and after replacing holding the start button for 30 seconds first.
All appeared fine untill I shut it down. There was a massive 186 windows updates to do, which was expected after rolling back so far...
The issue now is a I get this message on the screen "failure to configure updates, reverting changes. do not turn off you computer. I get stuck with this screen with no change, I even left it over night.
I haven't managed to find the safe boot option with this Win 8 machine, I tried the F8 key on start up but no joy.
Has anyone solved this problem before?

Just started happening this week.   It's stuck at the boot screen "lenovo".   I tried many different methods like removing battery, holding power button to reset, etc.  The *only* way to get it to boot is the remove memory card, and put it back.  Then it will boot up fine.     It might then boot fine for the rest of the day.  But then the next day (or after being shutdown for a while), it happens again so i have to remove memory card, put it back, etc.  What could be the problem here ?  I tried both memory slots.  So i don't think it's particular to one slot.

hi sameerjha28,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
?
You can try doing this:
-Turn off the computer.
-Unplug AC Adapter and remove the battery.
- Hold the Power button Down for at least 10-15 seconds, Then try reconnecting the AC adapter only and leave the battery out, turn it ON and see if it will make any difference.
- If it powered on Try it with the battery and check if it would still turn on properly.
?
If the above steps did not work Try an external monitor and check if it works there.
 
I would suggest Contact Lenovo Technical Support for service if the steps above did not help.
 
?
Hope this helps,

My rule of thumb with BIOS updates is "if it is not broke, do not try to fix it" because there is always an inherent risk that a BIOS update can fail, and if so, leave  the system bricked (dead) requirnig a new motherboard, and there does not appear to be anything in the latest updates readme.txt other than specific fixes for Windows 8.1...

Hello All,
 
My Lenovo Laptop, Lenovo G580 Model 2189, was upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Up until then I had been using Lenovo Solutions Center (LSC) and the Backup utility within it.
 
Now post the upgrade the Backup option has disappeared from the LSC. I am running LSC Version 2.8. 
 
I upgraded to LSC 3.x after reading somewhere that I should do this if I have upgradred to Windows 10. Then the only option I got was the periodic hardware scan for problems. So I downgraded again to LSC 2.8.
 
Will LSC Backup work under Windows 10 ?
Is there a Windows 10 version of LSC I can download that does have the backup option ?
 
Thanks All
John.

Im not native english speaker, sry if u cant understand some parts. Ill try my best to make my message clear so eventual will come easier.

This problem occurs for quite some time, its rather calm since few weeks when I downloaded shitload of new drivers and some other lenovo stuff but might be just coincedence. Since this issue doesnt want to go away itself I have to do something about it. I can send it to Lenovo for free service anymore so Id like to ask some experts if theres something I can do to fix this issue.

Some info:
- occurs usually while typing or other stuff, but few times my laptop literally went nuts and flashed black screens few times a sec, no matter if i touched it or not

- its not overheating, i bought cooling pad and it didnt help much

- can happen just after turning laptop on and not happen during 10h+ session

Thank you in advance.

I bought my Lenovo G580 more than 3 years ago, and it came with Windows 8.
For a certain reason, my coworker installed on it windows 7.
I tried to restore it to the original image by using the Novo OneKey Rescue button next to the power button... but unfortunately it didn't work... when i press the Novo button, four (4) choices appear on the screen:
- Normal Setup
- BIOS Setup
- Boot Menu
- System Recovery
When i press "System Recovery", windows 7 starts normally without recovering anything...
Is there any way to restore my Laptop to the original factory software???

A:G580 - Lenovo OneKey Rescue button is not working ...

Your One Key Recovery (OKR) button is working, but most likely the recovery partition that contained the necessary files was removed or destroyed during the install of Windows 7.You have a couple of options:1. Contact Lenovo Support by phone, ask if the recovery DVD's are still available and purchase them, it is a reasonable price...2. Purchase the retail DVD of Windows (7, 8.1 or 10) and perform a fresh install.3. Pick a Linux version you like - download and burn to DVD, then install from media.I personally use Windows 10 Pro and Linux Mint (Dual Boot) on my G580 with no hardware issues in either OS... Really like some of the applications that Linux has, and the fact that it is completely free to use.Good luck.CB

Hi

I got a new Lenovo G580 laptop which did not come with any pre-installed OS. I installed Ubuntu in UEFI mode (I had not disabled UEFI/Secure Boot). Later I installed Windows 7. During installation it asked me to format the entire format as it did not recognize the GPT partition. Accordingly without thinking twice I erased the entire HDD and installed Windows 7. Now I am unable to enter into BIOS

Things I have tried:
Tried with F2, F1 and Delete keys while booting
Tried removing the battery and booting while pressing the above keys individually
Tried removing the battery and adapter, held the power button for 1 minute
Tried removing the battery and held the power button for 1 minute while the adapter was plugged in
Tried pressing F12 and going to the APP MENU but I can only see "Diagnostic Splash" Nothing else and in that diagnostic splash screen I see that the System BIOS is "shadowed"
How can i gain access to BIOS so I can disable UEFI and install Win 7 and Ubuntu side by side

1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
 
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
 
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)

I am trying to get two old joysticks to work via a gameport-USB adapter cable, since my computer doesn't have a gameport. The joysticks are a Logitech Wingman model #3001 and a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro. The adapter is a USB Plug Series A to D-sub 15-pole jack, art. no. K5306.020. I need them to work on Windows XP, though it would be nice if they also work on Windows 7.

When I plug either of them in, nothing happens. They also don't appear in the device manager. When I try to add them via control panel -> game controllers, I get an error saying the gameport or drivers aren't properly configured.

I don't have the original cd-roms for the joysticks, because I got them from a friend who had them lying around in a dusty corner for ages.

Hello, folks...

Well, I think I have another virus. It HAS been awhile, but I think we got nailed this week. Interesting thing about it is, if I even to a clean new install of hjt or avg, those programs do not run. The second time I try to access them, I get a path not found error!

After reboot, I noticed two items in the running programs: loginui.exe runs, then disappears (Im not familiar with it, nor do I know it involves a virus). There is another one that runs -- keeps running for awhile, then allows the rest of the services, etc. to load. It is called 374039819:4103779561.exe --

Some symptoms include a screensaver coming on when none should, and when you leave the screensaver, the computer freezes with the background showing no icons. Occasionally, the icons return.

Any chance someone can help me to at least get a hjt log to show you, if not cure it directly? I'm running WindowsXP, up to date, with IE8 on a dell box. I'm posting from a different computer, so there is no tsg sysinfo.

Thanks,

Ok so like this is very confusing but hear me out
One day i come home and go on my computer. All of a sudden, my headphones don't work.
I've tried everything, and I think I've made it worse.
I tried to unplug my headphones and put them into another jack but that doesn't work
I tried to uninstall the headphones from my pc and reinstall but that doesn't work,
the only thing that sort of worked was when i plugged my headphones into the front and made the pc think it was speakers?
I can hear through 1 ear if i put it full in, but if i put it halfway it goes to both, but the quality gets worse.
There is no bass boost or surround sound when i plug it into the front (i need for cs:go)
The mic doesn't work at all in any way.

In the back of my computer there are 3 ports, 1 pink, 1 light green, and 1 dark green.
I've tried all sorts of combos of plugging my mic and headphone plugs into any of them, to no avail

If it helps, as stated above, my headphones use two plugs, 1 for mic and 1 for sound. The mic is pink and sound is green.

Also, when i look in the sound menu, it shows that sound is being played through the speakers, but I can't hear it

Recently, my PC started locking up for no reason and emitting a beeping sound, forcing me to reboot manually. It started occuring more often, forcing me to run two repair installations of XP with no success. After running a virus scan with Avast (which I really should have done first I suppose,) my PC caught and neutralized the Win32:Kuang2 trojan in my Firefox installation folder. The problem seems to be gone right now, or less occurent anyway. However, I'm still not out of the woods yet...

Following this lock up issue, I tried to connect my PSP to my PC to transfer some MP3s. What's odd is that the system detected it as new hardware each time I connected it and refused to display it at all. To see if it was just my PSP acting up or a problem with a device, I tried it on my other PC, which yielded no problems. I then connected my iPod to the faulty system, which wasn't detected properly either.

Thanks for your time.

I plugged my usual headphones into the audio jack and it was recognized, saying "You just plugged a device into the audio jack", but when I went to go listen to music, like I usually do, I hear nothing. I turned the volume all the way up and still hear nothing. I went into the Playback Devices tab for the audio and only the speakers icon shows up. No headphones. I unplugged and replugged the headphones in and still get nothing, even after the computer recognizes that there is something connected to the audio jack. I plugged the headphones into my MP3 player and it works. So, there's nothing wrong with the headphones. The computer speakers work, it's just the headphone jack that is giving me problems by not working. I've never had any issues with the audio jack before this. Please advise. Thanks!

I've been using a different computer for quite some time, because it's been more stable with larger files and what not, but I decided to start recording a few audio files for my first audio book after a sales failed to take an upturn.... I had a small budget from my day job to work with so I decided to revive a laptop which I hadn't used in ages, I stuck a drive in it and used my system builders copy of win 8 to put an OS on there because I wanted nothing but the audio work to be present. I didn't browse the web much, I did check my email once or twice on it, and I tried to eliminate any possibility of infection by keeping it off of networks 99% of the time. So it should be improbable it's infected or anything.

When I first setup the computer for recording I found a moderately priced usb microphone and downloaded something I was familiar with, Audacity. So after a quick check of audio quality of the playback, I recorded the bulk of the audio files I'd edit to produce the final files. It took roughly 28hrs of actual recording, and about a week and a half to find the free time, stamina, information, tools, and what not but I did eventually create the bulk audio files I'd need to cut out bloopers and my time procrastinating because I don't like the subject. Next I entered the editing phase, I started opening the files I just created back up in audacity and started clipping out segments I wanted to cut out because of background noise, failure to annunciate, pops and squeaks, int...

A:OS failure, partitions aren't recognized in an externalbay

If you're trying to recover your data, you'll need to do that first - as reinstalling the OS is fraught with difficulties that could erase your data.

The easiest method is to use a bootable OS disk that allows you to copy the data to an external USB device. An external hard drive is the best bet as it's large and reusable.

As for where it's saved, the most likely spot is the Users folder. Backing that folder up in it's entirety (with system and hidden files showing) will likely recover everything. There are some programs that store information in other, less likely places - but you'll have to try out each program in order to figure out if any of yours do that. Most well known programs behave predictabley - it's the lesser known one's that sometimes do things a bit out of the ordinary.

If you're uncertain, just backup the entire hard drive - that'll ensure the you get everything that was saved to the disk.
As to what's saved, unless you've setup an automatic backup of some sort - the only things saved are the things that you've saved yourself.

You should not have issues moving things because of a file type. You may have issues with Windows not being able to open things because of a file type that isn't registered with a program to open it.

If this isn't real clear, please post back with further questions.

Hey all,

I'm a proud owner of an EVGA X58 SLI LE and I love it!

I only have had one issue since owning the board for awhile, and that involves the onboard Firewire 400 headers and included connector for them. I finally decided to do something about it, so here I am.

The included connector and headers on the board seem to work OK whenever I connect a Firewire device: the drive will spin up, and the activity light turns on, so I know that it is getting power. Problem is, the drive is never recognized by Windows - not in Device Manager, My Computer, or anywhere else.

I have tried several different drives, all with the same result, and I know that the drives and Firewire cables work because I have hooked them up to other computers without issue. I've enabled 1394 support in the BIOS just to be sure that the computer itself wasn't causing the issue. And since the drives seem to get power, I don't necessarily believe it is a header or connector issue. Instead, I think I've narrowed the problem down to the Windows driver.

I installed 2 Maxtor Sata 120 gig drives and set them up for Raid O. When I try to install the operating system - XP Pro - the HDD's are not recognized as being installed and I get the blue screen of death with error messages.

Please help....cause the Geek Guys at Best Buy took me for $300 and didn't fix the problem.

Hello again!

I am trying to fix up a Dell P4 2.66ghz, no HD, no OS, 512ram, computer that I bought a while back. I bought a SATA hard drive and got Windows Me and installed both on the computer.

I don't have a lot of the drivers for the devices (video card, modem, LAN, sound card etc.) on the computer, but with the ones I do, I can't install them or do anything because I all the drives that are recognized are C: and A: !! The drives are connected to power and are connected to the bus cables.

This is my biggest problem to getting this computer up and running. I don't konw WHY I can't access these drives because that's what I used (of course) to install Windows! Je ne comprend pas!!

I looked into the BIOS, but I don't see anything there that would help me.
-By the way, how can you "reset" your BIOS to make sure that everything is as it should be?
HELP WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED - THANKS!

Okay, so I'm helping a friend out in building his first computer but the problem we're facing now is that the monitor connected up to the computer (that's finally put together) doesn't show anything, and the USB devices (being the keyboard and mouse) connected don't work.
If there's anything you'd like to ask about the build, what's connected what's not, feel free to ask; I'll tell you what you want to know.

*Things I know for sure*
The mouse and keyboard aren't broken.
The monitor worked 2 days ago, so I highly doubt the monitor just stopped working all of a sudden?

A:Monitor doesn't work and USB devices aren't detected

*UPDATE*
So... my friend managed to get it working by himself, but what bugs me is that the problem was with the RAM.
There are four ram slots; so RAM Slot 1, 2, 3 & 4.
1 & 2 are the first 2 rows of RAM that's closer to the CPU slot/cooler, and the cooler was already installed (Cumbersome)
So decided to use RAM slots 3 & 4 instead.
For some reason THIS was the problem; what had to be done at the end was RAM slots 1 & 4.
Slotting in the RAM with any other combination other than 1 & 4 didn't allow the computer to recognise the monitor or the USB devices for some reason.
Although the problem is solved now I would still like to know what went wrong, I want to learn from mistakes.

Sorry if I sound like a complete novice (because I am one) but the problem basically presents itself.
I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows Vista (don't ask me why) which is connected to the internet via an ethernet port (because I live in a college dorm).
So I tried to convert this into a wifi for my Samsung phone and tablet androids by making it into an adhoc connection, but they didnt register it. After much Google-ing I realised that androids don't support ad-hoc connections.
I even tried installing Connectify. But once again it created an ad-hoc connection as my laptop is Vista, which is incompatible.

I also read all this stuff about rooting your phone etc. which basically scared the hell out of me because I don't want to damage my devices and I'm afraid I might just, if I mess it up. They work absolutely fine otherwise.

So basically my question is, is there ANY way (an app, a software; no configuration required please) in which I can connect an android device to an Ethernet internet connection via Vista?

Thanks in advance. Especially to those who can explain in easy language.

Hi, I am having trouble with the Power Plan Settings. The default settings were not what I wanted so I have tried to change them several times. I chose NEVER, on all options, saved them and even rebooted a couple times. The settings in Ctrl Panel stay at what I changed them to but the computer does not recognize them. It continually goes to sleep, display goes down after 1 minute of being idle.

I tried contacting the Live Chat, explained my issues, told her what I had already done, and now was contacting them. She didn't ask me any questions other than what I had done to troubleshoot and sent me to a link that explains what I already knew and done several times. No help at all...I've been searching for help on the net and finally found this forum. I am hoping that someone here has had the same issues and knows what I can do. It also won't accept my change requiring a password when I sign into the computer. I don't want to have to sign in. changed that to NO, but it still requires a password.

I also made sure my windows has all the updates.

Thanks for any help. Nothing worse than reading in an idle mode only to have the screen go down after 1 minute, requiring I sign back in..

I have reformated my hard drive and am attempting to replace saved .dbx files to outlook express. Unable to recognize them. Any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] .dbx files aren't recognized in outlook express

Welcome to TSF....

The dbx files have to be imported into outlook express so if you just copy the directory to your hard drive that they are in and use the import function on the file menu you should be alright, jsut copying the dbx files into outlook will not work because they are not getting registered by outlook express.

Hi I have a very strange problem.Only our Apple devices will connect to our wifi.First let me explain our internet connection.
We have and pay for Internet through RCN cable However my husbands workplace gave him a juniper ssg5 router to connect to our modem so he can work from home a few days a week. He has a Cisco IP phone and laptop running windows 7 configured to connect directly to work via VPN. They also provided a second wireless net WPA for our family to use.

Here's the problem. As of yesterday none of our devices running Windows or Android will connect to the WPA network..Our Apple iPads and iPhone have no problem. We have two HP laptops one running Vista one running 8 and two Lg android phones.The problem seems to have started when I installed Firefox on my laptop running Vista then downloaded and started to install the Firefox app to my android phone.. Could that be the problem.? Then why would it effect my daughters phone and laptop also?

Oh btw hubby is Ocd about his network so although his juniper has two ports we should be able to use I don't see that happening until Friday after work he said he would call tech support then
Thanks for any insight you can give me

You have to turn on DLNA sharing. It is not enough to just share and give permissions. Click on Cortana and type media streaming options. She should give you a link right to control panel applet. Enable it.

Hello!

This is definitely a Windows 10 thing. If I connect either my Nexus 5 or my LG G4 to my PC via USB the phone is recognized. I can see it in Windows Explorer but clicking on it does nothing, no access to files.

Before I made the jump from Vista to Windows 10 it worked fine. There has to be some setting someplace. I did apply a hotfix (KB3099229_x64) which was supposed to fix the issue. It did not!

If there's some trick to it could you share it with me???

Thanks for you help way in advance!

A:Android device recognized but cannot access files on it

Are you sure you switched your phone to "File transfer" mode, as opposed to "Charging only" mode? Because this is exactly what happens when you connect an Android phone in "Charging only" mode: it becomes visible in Windows (e.g. in File Explorer), but shows as empty device - no file access.

In standard cookie-cutter Android Marshmallow you are supposed to manually switch the phone to "File transfer" mode every time you connect it to the computer. (Before Marshmallow it was possible to set a default mode, but for some reason they removed that capability in Marshmallow).

Hi, I accidentally went onto a website via google images and went off it right away however the page was about 2/5ths done loading. I accidentally hit the undo button and opened it again, but closed it immediately again.
This is on android kit kat, samsung tab 3.
I did a virustotal check, and the website had a 1/58 detection ratio. Website security guard had flagged it as a malware site.
I checked the site on scumware.org. 10 pages had been reported in 2013 to have scrinject.gen b. The page I had clicked onto was not on the list of 10.
Is my device in danger? I scanned with mbam mobile, avg , avast, cm security, cm cleaner and others and it has been clean. Unknown source applications are turned off, device is not rooted.
And another question, if my device is in danger, could malware on it spread to pcs on the same network?
Thanks. I have no pop ups, notifications or spammy ads, but im worried about possibility of android keyloggers.

A:Can android devices be at risk on a potentially malicious site?

With Android you as a user have to actually install malware. It's not like Windows with self extracting apps. If you ran malware scans afterwards and did not install anything. Then you are not infected with anything known and that has definitions in the anti-malware tools you used.In other words.As long as you weren't asked to install an app while you were on the site. Then immediately after you left that site you did the scans and came up clean. I don't see a problem.

Any help is appreciated. Note: I can connect my tablet, but only by powering down my router and then powering up again. I'm trying to avoid having to do this everytime. No luck at all connecting the Android phone to the one (out of two) preferred home network.
