Hello, I have an X1 Yoga and just noticed that the volume rocker (the physical buttons on the right side of the computer) don't seem to work when my lid is closed.  When the lid is open, the rocker works great.  But not otherwise. I have tried playing music from both Spotify and Youtube.  Both sources of audio don't work.  (Not sure if that's relevant, but just thought I'd mention it.) If there are any other X1 Yoga owners out there, could you please test this out?  I normally adjust volume with the Fn keys (with the lid open, obviously) so I didn't notice this issue until today.  I was just trying to listen to music with the lid closed for the first time today when I noticed the problem. Thanks!

this is copied and pasted right from windows help and support






You can also open Windows Sidebar by clicking the Start button , typing sidebar in the search box, and then pressing ENTER.



It also says:






To bring gadgets to the front using a keyboard shortcut Press the Windows Logo key +SPACEBAR.



I have also read the same thing throughout the web which comfirms that this is the right keyboard shortcut.

So I have all the information that tells me how to open windows sidebar using a keyboard shortcut the problem is nothing happens when I do it. I went to my other computer running vista and as soon as I did the shortcut windows sidebar popped right up.

The computer I am using is about 1 week old, the first thing I did was update it so it should be fully updated and I can confirm right now it has SP2 and windows update says there are no updates available (which is surprising since vista seems to have hourly updates). There is nothing wrong with the windows key or space bar key as they both work independently and for other shortcut combinations.

If anyone knows of a fix I would be grateful to know it as the sidebar is useless to me if I don't have a keyboard shortcut to access it.

Screen was cracked so I replaced the screen. Now touch doesn't work.
There is no "Pen and Touch" and "Tablet PC Settings" in Control Panel. In PC info it says, "No pen or touch input is available for this display."
Touch DOES work on LINUX as I ran it from a usb drive, so it is not a hardware problem.
I have reinstalled Windows.
I have another Yoga 2 Pro and comparing Device Manager in both I see no differences.
How can I get the touch to work again?

A:Why doesn't my Touch work after replacing the screen on my Yoga 2 Pro?

try refreshing your PC maybe the driver is not working properly
If the touchscreen does show up on the device manager try updating the driver from there. (it will be listed under HID )
​Otherwise To refresh your PC Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.Follow the instructions on the screen.

I have bought Inspiron I5558 signature edition 5 months back.My speakers are not working after it reaches 50 percent of volume till then they will work fine. I uninstalled and installed new audio drivers but problem is not solved. Please help....

A:Speakers doesn't work after certain volume

Hi kash2528,
I would suggest you to update BIOS and reinstall the audio driver on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the audio card.

In the search box, Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Sound, video and game controllers listed and expand it.
You should find Realtek High definition audio or audio controller please right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After uninstallation please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section and audio driver from audio section onto the system and install it.

I'm running Windows XP SP2 and I have all my sound drivers installed (I can get sound just fine in every app), but I can't control the main volume in the Volume Control. I can adjust the volume with the Wave slider, but the main one doesn't do anything, including mute. Individual applications' volume controls work fine too, just not the main Windows one. It wouldn't be a problem, but it might be the reason why I'm not getting any volume on the Stereo Mix recording option. I just finished a clean install of XP (for a different reason) and it wasn't working before, either. Any ideas?

Hi

Thanks in advance for any help
I've got a a Dell Lattitude D820 with Windows XP home.
One day, out of the blue, I started getting an error message when Windows tries to boot.
Unmountable_Boot_Volume

with some unhelpful directions, and then at the bottom,

Stop: 0X000000ED (0x864FB590, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I checked out some different places and the general advice was to try and boot windows from the Windows CD. After setting the BIOS and cleaning the disk, this is what happens

Blue screen with ?Windows Setup? appears and at the bottom it tells me all the little steps it's taking to get windows going. It all goes well and I get ?Setup is starting Windows?

but then I get another blue screen of doom, this one says:

Stop: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF76130BF, 0xF7A5F208, 0xF7A5EF08)

pci.sys- Address F76130BF base at F760C000, DateStamp 3b7d855c

I'm not even sure I can reformat if the CD won't work. Ugh.

A:Unmountable Boot Volume, and Windows CD doesn't work

Are you using IDE or SATA. Did you check to be sure you are using the proper cable if you are using IDE? That could cause the first error and the second error. The second error is a driver based error. Hopefully you have a backup because there is a possibility your hard drive is dying. My suggestion...check the cabling...remove any unneeded hardware from the computer...check to make sure everything else is seated properly and try to start up. How old is the computer?

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

Hi

Since upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit I can't turn the volume all the way down by using the volume control at the front of the notebook. Worked fine under Vista 32 bit.

A:Tecra P5 - Volume control doesn’t work properly

As far as I know volume control in the past was mechanical but now it works on different way and it is controlled by specific tool/utility.
To be honest Tecra P5 is not known to me but obviously it is Australian notebook model and according to Australian support page this notebook model is not supported for Windows 7.

That doesn?t mean you cannot use it but this means there is not software package designed for Windows 7 that can be installed so I think there is no much you can do about it.

I know it is annoying but for volume control you can use Windows option placed in task bar.

Hey all,

Quite a nice forum you have here, I'm glad to have found it. I'm looking for a little help with a sidebar issue, perhaps someone out there has had a similar experience.

I'm running Home Premium x64. The build is only ~1month old and previously the sidebar was working fine. Apparently I've fouled something up. The sidebar loads fine, runs fine, looks fine. Here is the problem; Gadgets like Pro Weather, or Hermes, where the user has the option of opening up a larger screen to the left of the gadget.. those screens are unresponsive.

For example in the weather app, I click the little arrow to expand the gadget, it brings up the larger window with options to view the radar, or nightly forecasts, or moon phases etc, but my clicking ANYWHERE on that screen is unresponsive.. it just doesn't work.

I thought maybe it was the weather app, but then noticed the same thing on Hermes. Hermes is a news ticker. When you hover over a story it brings up the full story in a pane to the left, with clickable links for the actual web story. Again, all mouse input in this pane seems to be restricted, and the links do not work.

I don't recall the exact moment when I lost control of this. Over the past few weeks I have installed / uninstalled Norton AV, and used a utility called 'Vista Manager'. Currently I am running no AV. The Vista Manager program is pretty neat actually. I didn't make any kind of drastic changes with it, but thats not to say it isn't someone related. Ma... Read more

Hello friends,

When my Windows Vista (x64) starts, an error message appears: settings.ini is being used by another process.... and Windows Sidebar doesn't open. Another symptoms are: Mozilla Firefox stop working, Google Chrome browser acting limited (search capabilities). I cannot save a file into documents when downloaded from ie, I cannot open pictures because it says I don't have permission to it. So far this is what I've noticed.

This happened after installing Windows 7 as dual boot and after accessing the C: folder on the Windows Vista from Windows 7, when I restarted to Vista I started getting this message. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the problem or not.

I noticed that when I turn off UAC User Account Control then I get my desktop back without seeing any more of these issues. I don't want to turn off the UAC though.

Please help, your wisdom will be greatly appreciated.

I like Firefox with the exception of the way it loads the Bookmarks sidebar. I like the way IE has the "star" icon enabling to open Bookmarks in the sidebar.

Firefox can be made to do this by putting the Bookmarks icon in. It doesn't work the same way though. When using that icon to open Bookmarks, it opens the sidebar and the webpage resizes itself to display outside the Bookmarks sidebar. With IE, the Bookmarks sidebar opens on top of the webpage so the webpage is not resized. I like this much better. Also, when clicking a Bookmarked item in IE, the sidebar immediately closes and the webpage opens. Firebox doesn't do it this way. When clicking on a link in Firefox sidebar, the sidebar continues to stay open, the webpage loads (and resizes outside the sidebar) and the sidebar then has to be closed manually. I don't like that at all, as I only use the sidebar to view and click on a bookmark and then I want it closed as soon as I click a bookmark.

Can the Firefox Bookmarks sidebar be made to behave like IE's does? This is the only thing that is preventing me from using Firefox exclusively as it does load webpages faster than IE. (I'm talking about Firefox 3 and IE 7)

Hi! So my Yoga 2 just turned 2 years old a few days ago and now it's acting up; the volume display keeps going up to max volume and every time I try to mute the laptop it just keeps showing that green bar notification. My touchpad doesn't work (but my mouse does), and if I have a program that has more than one window (i.e. word documents or chrome windows), then it cancels out when I hover towards the window. I know that my up volume button is jammed since every time I try to turn it down it just goes up again. Is it possible to disable my physical volume keys so the jammed button won't register and keep changing the volume?

You can change the volume in software, but neither the volume +- on the keyboard, nor the volume rocker on the side of the machine will change the volume. That is, UNLESS you open the task manager, and then click on the services tab. As long as the focus is on the services tab, then the volume on the keyboard and the rocker will both work. If you click on another window, or if you click on a tab other than the services tab, both sets of buttons stop working. Also, both sets of buttons work fine in Linux.

You can change the volume in software, but neither the volume +- on the keyboard, nor the volume rocker on the side of the machine will change the volume. That is, UNLESS you open the task manager, and then click on the services tab. As long as the focus is on the services tab, then the volume on the keyboard and the rocker will both work. If you click on another window, or if you click on a tab other than the services tab, both sets of buttons stop working. Also, both sets of buttons work fine in Linux.

Hi! So my Yoga 2 just turned 2 years old a few days ago and now it's acting up; the volume display keeps going up to max volume and every time I try to mute the laptop it just keeps showing that green bar notification. My touchpad doesn't work (but my mouse does), and if I have a program that has more than one window (i.e. word documents or chrome windows), then it cancels out when I hover towards the window. I know that my up volume button is jammed since every time I try to turn it down it just goes up again. Is it possible to disable my physical volume keys so the jammed button won't register and keep changing the volume?

So I waited three weeks to get this thing from China, finally get it all set up only to discover the volume rocker does not work AT ALL.  Not only does it not adjust the volume, but I'm pretty sure it's defective... There is more action/click in one direction than the other... seriously, Lenovo?  I paid TOP DOLLAR for this thing.  What are you going to do to fix it, and DON'T EVEN tell me to mail it ANYWHERE until my replacement arrives...

When I open the summary for a news story from gadgets such as Hermes or Feed Headlines, the links are all dead -- no reaction at all.
My default browser is Firefox (I even used Serbrowser to make sure it was) & this works fine with links in other programmes, like in my email, etc. No problem. However, the link ability of the sidebar gadgets comes & goes, & at present, only logging off/on or restarting restores them -- temporarily!
Can anyone help? Is it a registry problem? Any advice will be welcome.

I have recently installed a new HDD and reinstalled Vista Ultimate x32. This was in response to numerous HD crashes on previous drive and I wanted to start fresh instead of waiting for the old HDD to fail permenantly.

Through the sequence of updating the OS the computer went through the normal process of updating and restarting. Later, the Shut Down button had an shield icon on it and a popup dialog that said Windows would install an update and shut down the computer. I don't know why it would not restart it, but it appeared to be part of the update process. Once the computer was manually restarted, the Sidebar wouldn't work, My Favorites are missing and no telling what else has been changed. This obviously does not appear normal.

My old HDD is still in the computer as I have been transfering files from it to the new HDD.
Am running Norton Internet Security which hasn't reported anything.

What do I need to do?

Thanks

I have a Thinkpad Yoga S1 and I was wondering how I can disable the volume rocker on the side of the system. I still want to be able to use the volume controls on the keyboard, but sometimes I accidentally press them and sometimes they get stuck so I want to just turn them off. How do I do this?Thanks.

A:Disable Volume Rocker on the side of Thinkpad Yoga...

I have the Yoga X1, and I have the same problem.  I keep mine verticle in a sleeve in my backpack, but these buttons are on the opposite side of the power port, so they face down and frequently get pressed due to gravity, which wakes the computer, which then runs down the battery and super heats up the unit while not being used in my backpack.  They also seem to somehow start the music player.  Anyway, there must be a registry key to disable them if Lenovo didn't have the foresight to put in an option to control/reprogram them.  Hopefully somebody knowledgible will respond.

Bought the yoga pro 3 off Amazon last week and got it today. It was in an unopened box. So, I have the power cord and adapter plugged in, but what I assume is the charging status light doesn't light up. Then I press the power button and the power button light lights up, however the screen doesn't turn on (whether or not power cord was plugged in or not). I already googled a lot of the solutions online, but none worked. The adapter should be working because I then tested it separately with my phone and it was charging. I contacted Lenovo support and the seller. Doing a serial number check, I found out that the laptop was bought in 2014, so the 1-year warranty already passed. I'm still waiting back on the seller's response and see if I can return/fix and on Lenovo if I can send it to them for fix, which both takes 2-3 business days.However, in the meantime, it would be great if this is something I could fix on my own. I already resetted the laptop, forced shutdown, and etc a bunch of times. Followed a lot of online procedures. I do not want to pop open the back of the laptop cover and mess around with the battery yet because I rather not screw things up and not being able to get a refund/waranty coverage. The only interesting thing I discovered was then sometimes after I forced shutdown, the charging light will blink orange once and then disappear. This situation seems unique because the laptop doesn't turn on fresh out of the box. Any help would be appreciated!

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either
- and probably other stuff that I haven't took note of yet...

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Hi, I recently purchased a Thinkpad X1 Yoga, shipped on May 16, 2016.  I have an issue:     When I use the left side USB port (the one on the side of the power charging port) to charge my old Ipod and the laptop goes to sleep. The laptop does not wake up when opening the lid or pressing on the power button. However, as soon as I disconnect my Ipod from the USB port. The laptop immediately wakes up but unable to login using the fingerprint reader. Specific steps to reproduce: 1) Plug x1 yoga power cord to the laptop 2) Plug Ipod to the left side USB port. Make sure Ipod has no earphones plugged in. 3) Put the laptop in sleep mode 4) Close the lid of the laptop 5) Wait until iPod is no longer being charged by the laptop (a few seconds after the laptop goes to sleep) 6) Wait until iPod automically turns off on its own (it takes 15 to 30 mins, not sure exactly how much time.) 7) Open the laptop lid and notice that the laptop is not waking up. 8) Press on the "power" button on the right side of the X1 Yoga. Notice that the laptop does not wake up. 9) Remove the iPod from the USB port on the left side of the X1 Yoga.        Notice that the laptop is now able to wake up.        Also notice that the finger print reader is not responding. Cannot login using the fingerprint reader. Seems like a driver issue. Lenovo please confirm! ThanksWilly

Hi Heck,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Windows 10 is definitely better designed to be used in table mode and switch between a table mode and computer mode use. Despite that I expected some learning curve, I found that the Windows 10 environment is immediately very intuitive to use. When in Windows 10, you can access the table-mode settings by navigating to Windows 10 Settings > System > Tablet Mode.

Also, Turns out there is a screen lock position button on the side. You might have pressed it by accident....that's what I did.

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

I have a ThinkPad Yoga 14, which has a keyboard backlight that can be turned on and off by pressing Fn+Space. Recently I've found that if I turn it off, it sometimes stays on. In this state it will flicker when the computer is tapped or bumped, or just moved around, and when placed at certain angles it will stay off. If I turn it on, it stays on consistently ? it's only when it's set to off that it doesn't work right. It seems like there must be a loose connection in there or something. Does this sound like something that can be easily fixed?

Dear Forum, Ever since I installed Windows 10 the automatic screen rotation doesn't work. I have the impression that Windows doesn't even know that my Thinkpad has the corresponding sensors. In the device manager, there is no "Sensor" section, I have no "Rotation lock" button in the quick settings (not greyed out, it's not even there), and the physical rotation lock button does nothing. I checked that the services "Sensor Data Service", "Sensor Monitoring Service" and "Sensor Service" are running and automatically started.I read here on the forum, that there should be some "HID sensors V2" visible in the Device manager. This doesn't show up, so I have no idea how to reinstall drivers. Any suggestions how to teach Windows that it has more hardware than it thinks it has?

Both are running fine. But it is impossible to start the PC when the dock is connected: The screen freeze at the red square LENOVO display from the Bios, windows 10 pro doesn't start.

I have to disconnect the dock, et relaunch the PC to enable a normal start. After the start, I can reconnect the dock.

I updated all drivers, flashed the bios, latest FW of the dock and even resetted Windows, but without success.

Lenovo support wants to change the laptop (!), it's brand new!

I thought maybe one of the topgun member of this community might have a better idea.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

So, I run Vista and at the moment I have both the sidebars installed...

I am not particularly bothered in which of the two to keep but I really don't want both..
I like the google gadget but on the other hand I like the "feel" of the Vista sidebar because it i) autohides ii)doesn't take desktop space, hence can keep icons "behind it" iii) more gadgets iv) transparent

My question is this..
1. if I were to only keep the google one is there any way to keep the vista sidebar effects?
2. if I keep the vista one can i miggrate the google apps there? (such as google talk, scratch pad and search????)

(btw, if I use the "autohide" option in the google sidebar I am faced with 2 problems, 1. I use 2 monitors so if I want to bring it to front I need be veeeery careful in my mouse positioning and 2. still takes up desktop space...)

Very confused here...
Let me know if I dont make sense and I'll try to clarify,
Thanks for the help

A:Google sidebar vs Vista sidebar

I seriously doubt you can migrate Google apps to the Vista sidebar. Many people are generating gadgets for the Vista toolbar, so maybe some of the functionality you want will show up.

Hi... xp stopped responding and I decided to power off.

Was never able to restart after that. Normal boot shows the windows initial screen, but eventually just restarts, safe mode does the same thing whether it's with network, command line or plain safe mode. Last known good configuration does the same.

Needed to use a file so decided to remove the HD and re-install to another PC. I did have access to the file in question but now I'd like to fix the problem.

The other system uses AVG. I started a scan and it detected Cekar.d (A0003977.exe, wdfmgr.exe and initially ntldr.exe), Dropper.Inor (ntdetect.hta, A0003979.hta), PSW.Generic5.ABVW (ctfmona.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.AAFI (ctfmonb.exe), PSW.Generic5.AFYK (ctfmond.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.ZWT (LotusHlp.exe) and some others but for whatever reason the scan stopped. I restarted it and now the AV still finds most of the threats it was seeing before but not Cekar.d. in the ntldr.exe file.

The system that had the problem was running Win XP Home SP1. Unfortunately, I can't find the manufacturer's recovery CD.

HD is still in the other PC. How should I attack the problem?
 

A:XP doesn't reboot, safemode doesn't work

Update... Three passes of AVG and all threats were put in vault. Tried to re-install the HD to the initial system but no change... System says it didn't start correctly, that a new software of hardware could be responsible, the suggests to try las known good config, none of the options work, they all perform some tasks then windows reboots and ends up in the same screen.

My problem is that I cannot access the internet through my LAC. I enable the connection and it will connect and send packets, but will not receive any packets. I have no problems enabling my wireless connection and connecting to the internet. The wireless does like to disconnect and reconnect about 3 or 4 times an hour which is another problem I have. I believe this LAC problem started around the same time I was trying to get shared music between my computers on iTunes. I was trying to allow for connection on port 3689, but everything I did was unsuccessful. Any suggestions for any of these problems I'm having?

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.
 

A:Windows Media Encoder doesn't work at home, does at work

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

I'm having difficulty figuring out this persistent malware. I think it's likely that there are multiple issues.

I'm running Windows Vista.

The malware started off with "google redirect" symptoms, and disabling my Symantec software

Shortly following, I could no longer access the web. However, the malware itself would create an internet explorer popup every 5-10 minutes (not my default browser) that would go to "search sites" (none that I recognized....) and search for lewd topics. Running the taskmanager would show multiple instances of iexplore.exe running on my machine (one for each popup). The popups would have to be eliminated one by one using the task manager.

Trying to run a system restore, I discovered all restore points had been deleted.

I installed AVG antivirus and got it to run once which seemed to help the problem. However, upon restart, all issues were back and I could no longer run avg. Windows defender constantly pops up that a new trojan is attacking my machine.

At this point, I unplugged my internet connection and started using another machine. I had left my problematic computer alone for about a month.

Upon turning it on last night, each time I logged on, it gave me a warning that "Windows had encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and would restart. I tried running cmd (in that one minute) to intercept it, but the task manager would freeze if I tried to run it from there and explorer wo... Read more

The key combinations WIN+up (or +down, +left or +right) does nothing on my X1 Yoga (it should assign the app in focus to part of the screen). Likewise, WIN+D does nothing (it should minimize everything and display the Desktop). But my WIN key isn't broken. For example, WIN+A pulls up the Action Center. WIN+E launches the Windows Explorer. There are other WIN+ combos that work, such as WIN+L (locks the computer).  So why don't they all work?  Is there some weird, obscure setting somewhere that is causing this?

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

Now, the weird thing is that I can play games without a problem and the sound's still there! Hell, even sounds made by Windows -- I hear 'em! YouTube works too!

Alright,

So whenever a program uses InstallShield to install or uninstall a program, it boots up, and the bar fills up preparing to run the Wizard, and right when it fills, an error message pops up: "An error occurred while launching the setup. The specified module could not be found," and then it quits.

This occurs anytime I try to install or uninstall anything that uses InstallShield. I've tried everything at the InstallShield troubleshooting site, including deleting a file in the registry (the problem key was there but deleting it didn't solve the problem), making sure I had admin privilidges, and emptying out the Temp folder. I can't reinstall InstallShield because it (ironically) requires InstallShield to install.

The one problem that I can think of would be that I just got back from college. At college, I logged onto a network to use the computer. Could this have something to do with it? I've tried logging onto the computer itself as the Admin, but the problem still occurs. This whole thing really sucks because the comp is pretty much useless not being able to install or uninstall anything.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:InstallShield doesn't work, none of the usual fixes work

Depending on what version of InstallShield you have here is a site that shows some of it's program errors >
http://helpnet.installshield.com/robo/projects/installshield10-5compact/CP_IHelpBuildErrors.htm

Have you tried this site > http://consumer.installshield.com/

InstallShield uses the Windows Installer Service. It could be that Windows Installer Service has somehow become corrupted.
Check this site out > http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108201

As a last resort you might consider reinstalling your Windows Operating System on top of itself to repair and replace the corrupted or missing files associated with InstallShield and Windows Installer Service.

Just for your information, InstallShield is the oldest installer program company. However there is another that is completely free “Inno Setup” which you may have seen when installing some programs. Here’s their site > http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

I've long used Winamp while watching videos on my computer. They've always peacefully co-existed but now things have changed. I did a clean install of Windows and now Winamp is dramatically louder than any other movie file I play. Games and program sounds are just fine but movies seem to have sound issues.

It isn't that Winamp is louder than normal, it is very much at the volume it has always been. Movies are just sooo friggin quiet now. I have to turn my speaker volume all the way up, turn the media player volume all the way up, and then turn the Windows volume all the way to max for the WAV slider. It is ridiculous.

I even loaded an ASF file into Windows Media Player, Windows Media Player Classic, The Core Media Player, and PowerDVD. All had the exact same super low volume. I loaded that same video into Winamp and it sounded so much louder. I had the video playing in Winamp and WMP Classic at the same time and the difference is crazy. So what is going on? Why does Winamp get normal volume but all other sources that play video files get super low sound?

I considered a codec problem, sound card problem, and/or a media player program issue, but then Winamp wouldn't be able to play a video at normal volume. Does anybody know what might be going on?

Sound Card: Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer

I've got a cordless logitech iTouch keyboard. When I hit the button button on the keyboard, it mutes the "master volume". However WAV volume seems to overwrite the master volume. Meaning if I have an mp3 playing you can still hear it even though master volume is mute.

Strange I know, but it's true.

Sound card is onboard: Intel 82801BA/BAM AC' 97

I've got latest drivers from Logitech, but problem still occurs with different keyboard.

Hi:

I have the same problem. WAV volume level is used instead of master volume. It does not matter if I use my laptops volume buttons or adjust the volume with the volume control in the Control Panel.

My sound is processed using an ALi Audio Accelerator.

If anyone can help with this it'd be super.

I'm trying to run the newest Doom game on a Yoga 13 ideapad and keep getting errors.  I believe the problem is the graphics card.  I tried downloading the latest from Nvidia but when I install it I get an "installer cannot continue" message.  After some googling it seems to me that my computer doesn't allow any other graphics card than the Intell HD that it shipped with, but this card is incompatible with what Doom runs on.  I could be wrong about any of this because I am not at all a techie person and just struggling to figure out what's going on.   Anyway, so lately I've been trying to find some way to get Nvidia to install and run as my graphics card or driver.  I've seen some instructions on how to edit some file manually and it's extremely confusing, and I tried it but I'm pretty sure I didn't do it right, so I'm trying to find some other way to do this.  Is it even possible to run Doom on this computer, or does the graphics card just make it completely impossible?

A:Getting Nvidia to work on a Yoga ideapad.

You do not have a Nvidia card, so stop trying to install a Nvidia driver! Your computer does not have a video card.  The graphics (Intel 520 or 540) is integrated on the motherboard.  You will not be able to buy/install a Nvidia card.

Good day.
 
The Yoga 900 works with capacitive pens only. Those are the type that mimic a fingertip. These might be ok for some Photoshop features, but not likely for fine-point control. In addition, there won't be pressure-level sensitivity, at least of the type that one gets with a Wacom-style digitizer / active pen.
