Welcome to the forums! Windows 7 has some inbuilt diagnostics to check for your sound issues Go to control panel and select troubleshooting your sound devices You can also go thorugh this thread at microsoft answers If you still have a problem with your sound device make sure that is compatabile with windows 7,you may need to run the windows 7 upgrade advisor If the upgrade advisor finds the required drivers it will point out the link to you. Hope this helps

I have a Lenovo 3000 J desktop that wont boot. As a point of reference, I try to hit the F1 key as the manual suggest and the F12 key as many have suggested and get nothing but clicking. I am not able to see anything on the monitor although I do know that it is working as I can see the no signal message.The light on the DVD/CD drive does flash but seem to get hung there. I recognize this is an older unit and If ican get it booted up will save all files to a remote drive and replace. Any ideas or help is appreciated BB

hi Braddburm,
Welcome to the Forums.
It looks like the onboard VGA port gave out. Try to:
1. Use a discrete graphics card to output your video (i.e. pci or low profile pci-e graphics card)
2. If option 1 is not possible and you're considering a replacement machine, you will need a 3.5 HDD sata enclosure to convert the internal HDD to an external HDD to read the data on the new replacement machine.
Best regards,

Hey there guys and gals, I have a Lenovo Laptop 3000 series G530 (18 months old) and it causing me a few problems because it's extremely slow and almost always unresponsive to anything I do (webpages on most occasions are taking 30 - 40 minutes to load, Although here it only take 10 - 20 seconds :P).

Anyway I located a .VHD file and tried to use that restore it's previous state from last november (just before I returned it too the microsoft engineer who said he had fixed it when he hadn't (naughty engineer ), Anyway I managed to fix it myself that time round.

So I was posting in one of the threads here earlier about opening the .vhd file to access the windows file's before they became unresponsive (or whatever you want to call it ) and it turn's out that the .vhd file may be from just after the engineer tried to fix it or just before (not too sure it was the same day though ), Anywho I wanted to know how to do a factory restore on the computer without having the installation disc (and apparently no product key on the sticker below the battery on the bottom of the laptop, It's worn away so it's unreadable).

Trying to upgrade my old but good 3000 series J1115 all in one desktop.  It's gong to be used to run a small business. Here's what I have already done (awhile back):1) Upgraded power supply2) Upgraded RAM to 2 2GB3) 1 TB HD4) Restored the os to factory defaults (done today) Here's what I want to do:1) Install windows 7 and bring it up to date2) Update the Lenovo (drivers??, BIOS??, etc.) The problem I am having is that I cannot find info for my computer.  I am not super computer savvy, but am trying to follow directions that I find.  I have not installed the win 7 yet.  I didn't know if I needed to update anything on the computer first.  It is completely reset back to factory settings.  Any input on what I could do to get this ol' dinosaur in shape would be helpful.  I also installed and am using Firefox as my browser.  Thanks for any pointers!

A:3000 Series J1115 Upgrade

you might want to look at this thread to find where obtain the User Guide and Hardware Maintenance Manual which may contain some useful informaion for you.
The system was discontinued before Windows 7 came onto the market so please ensure you are able to install the original OS if needed as drivers were never developed for it by Lenovo. 
That said I'm pretty sure Windows 7 will install and run on the J115 without any great problems surprising you.  My tip; give it a go on a spare HDD, if you have one, and if any drivers are missing try and find appropriate drivers or install the Vista drivers in compatability mode if nothing else works.  Alternatively attach a drive as secondary which has Vist installed and tell Windows 7 through device manager to search that drive for drivers.
Hope that all makes sense.  Do let us know how you get on, I'm sure others will be interested to know and also ready to help out if you do hit some difficulties and have questions.

Hi there,
Bought my LP Inspiron 11 3000 Series earlier this year and was really pleased with it because it was fast and light.
Then DELL sent out a BIOS upgrade which has turn my lovely speedy laptop into a dead donkey in that it no longer "sleeps" - it reboots from scratch every time, the time it takes to boot is painfully slow when before it was really fast, and it takes *ages* (sometimes feels like years) to open applications such as Excel, Word, or Chrome.
What has DELL done to my laptop?  Please, PLEASE, is there a fix?

Ok, so I had Vista up until yesterday when I reformatted my computer and loading XP on it. Everything is working fine except now I have no sound. There is no volume icon in the task bar and in the "Sounds and Audio Devices" it says "No Audio Device." I have an integrated sound card but I'm not sure what it is and I have tried downloading countless drivers to get this to work. In my device manager I have PCI Device, SM Bus Controller, and Ethernet Controller all under "Other Devices" with no drivers to match, don't know if these would conflict with my sound. And in the device manager it shows "Legacy Drivers" under my Sound tab. I have gone through the bias and made sure my audio was enabled so that is not the issue. I called my company's tech support and they couldn't offer any help except loading Vista again which I would rather not do.

Welcome to TSF....

Since you downgraded to Windows XP and what has to be done is to download all of the special drivers for the motherboard for windows xp. These are chipset, buss, network, video, audio and others and can be found on one of the several next places. The manufacturers web site for either the computer or the motherboard. Once these are downloaded you are to burn them to a CD-R disk and then install in the order I typed earlier.

Hello Everyone,

Odd thing i've experienced yesterday, upgraded lenovo t410 laptop to intel ssd drive 180 GB and decided to instal win7 pro with integrated sp1.
In the post installation stage, while setting username and computer name computer crashed with BSOD.
It happen 4-5 times. Even booting in the safe mode i experienced 2 times complete freeze where i had to manually power off laptop.
I continued installing drivers on notebook and seams that issue is no longer present.
I have different problem now, windows shuts down unexpectedly without any bsod dumps. happen also several times in past 24h.
In attach you will see in system logs only single entry as i cleared event logs to find last occurrence easily.

Note that with Hitachi disk that was in laptop before I never experienced bsod, true is that i got laptop with installed win7proSP1 on it with all drivers installed.
I used lenovo system update tool to get all drivers to the system.

I am suspecting that new hardware (intel ssd 520 series) might be cause of this or the drivers either on sata controller or on disk.
according to ssd toolbox firmware on disk is latest.

Run Disk Full test with Intel ssd toolbox and finished successfully.

I recently got an HP 2311x Monitor for Christmas and hooked it to a Lenovo H200 tower. I am unable to get past Windows splash screen. BIOS says "we apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." I have tried going into safe mode and just about every other option to no avail. I asked HP tech support to see if bad monitor but it is fine. I also called Lenovo Idea tech support and they said a tech will call back. I think something is uncompatible with Lenovo and HP monitor. It worked just fine when it was hooked to an old CRT. Cant handle the latest flat screen technology perhaps?. Any suggestions?

I had a fruitless chat with Sony tech support (as usual) and they inform me that 2gig is the max for my machine.
The mobo has 4 ram slots 184pin config and at the moment is carrying 4 x 512m memory sticks type PC3200U and was hoping to fit 4x 1gig type PC3200U sticks. Unfortuately the PC takes for ever to boot with 4 x 1gig sticks in.
Can anyone advise if this machine is at its max of 2gig or can the BIOS be pursuaded to see 4gig?

Hopefully I can workout the new 4 x 1gig sticks config, if not I will have to return them to the supplier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This may be a dumb question but I'll ask it anyway.  I love my 3000 3157 win the pentium quad core but I notice there is the same machine out with the faster i5 and/or i7.  As you know the cpu is not socketed on this motherboard so I am wondering if the faster i5 + motherboards keep the same general design so that it may be possible to upgrade the motherboard in this laptop at some point?  To mean anyhow upgrading to a motherboard with a faster non-socketed cpu would be more cost effective than a new machine.  The only thing that really bothers me at this moment is the lack of good stylus support and a second minicard slot for cellular network would be very desireable as well.


This isn't a practical upgrade -- there's no guarantee the higher-end models are even built by the same manufacturer, and while they make look similar externally, retrofitting a mainboard from a higher-end 7000 series into a 3000-series may not even be possible.  By the time you pay for a board/CPU AND replace the display assembly (it's the display that differentiates a true tablet notebook from one that just has a touchscreen like the 3000 series), you're likely to spend over $700 just in parts -- and wind up with a Frankenstein system that may or may not work properly.
There are true tablet systems in the 11-13" range -- these generally run at or over $1,000 new -- you just won't find those features on a $350 system such as your 3000 series, nor is it practical to upgrade the internal parts.

If you haven't tried already connect external speakers or a earphones and see if you get sound then, try to find out if this is a absolutely no sound issue, or simply that the integrated speakers aren't working.
Check the playback devices and make sure that the correct one is set to default, right click on the speaker icon on the taskbar and choose playback devices; Windows may show a number of different playback devices, look for Realtek High Definition Audio, is it set to default and if not what is? Right click Realtek and choose default click on the test, do you hear sound now? If not, test the other playback devices in the same way and see if you get sound back.
Do a search for Dell Audio and if listed select the Dell Audio Utility and run it. Check here to see if the speakers are muted, click the advanced tab and if nothing else seems to help choose to restore defaults.

I'd suggest you power off notebook, disconnect AC adapter and all Peripherals. Remove battery, press "Power On" button for 15 seconds, and then release. Replace battery, AC adapter, and then power on system. Hopefully computer works normally
I'd also suggest you run diagnostic tool on the system. It will scan for any possible hardware problems on the system. Please follow steps below:
1.Power off system.( Make sure AC adapter is connected to system)
2. Power on system, quickly start tapping F12 key continuously. You should be in the diagnostic screen. After the quick tests, run the full tests as well. Report back any error codes.

I purchased an Inspiron 11 3147 with what appears to have a non K-Slot security slot. However I have been unable to find out what kind of slot it is. Along with the laptop I bought a Kensington security cable (Dell part number A5883764). The bar on the cable is too wide to fit into the slot on the notebook. The cable fits fine into my other devices with a k-slot. The only explanation I can come up with is that Dell just didn't make the slot big enough, which I also find hard to believe.
I opened a case with Dell, but the support tech was not able to find a compatible security cable and advised that I contact Kensington.
Attached is a picture showing the slot and cable.
Has anyone else had similar problems?

A:Inspiron 11 3000 series Security Slot

I recently received my Dell Inspiron 13 7000 and I had the same problem with my Kensington combination lock.
Researching information in the web, it looks like Dell changed the security slot to a shorter one (Noble security Wedge) for some Tablets, Ultrabooks (including Dell XPS 12) and Inspiron 14 (7437) - 7000. There is not information for Dell Inspiron 11 3000 or 13 7000 series but as I can see in some pictures the size of the slot is the same that the Inspiron 14 7000.
The new slot is using Noble security Wedge (Manufacturer Part# : TZ08 | Dell Part# : A6451164) and the link to buy it in Dell store this special security cable is:
I will buy this cable hoping it fits my Dell 13 7000.

My b-in-l has just bought an Acer 3000 series laptop. It appears to be partitioned into two sections, C & D ~ both of which are around 37Gb in capacity. He keeps getting a message saying that the C drive is nearly full ~ this is despite the fact that there's only around 2.5Gb of files/folders and programs on it.

We bought the Inspiron 11 3000 series 2-in-1 with the Intel pentium processor and Windows 10 back in August 2015. We've recently been having problems with the audio, it goes from quiet to loud and then loud to quiet without touching the volume. It almost sounds like it's skipping, but the volume just goes so low you can barely hear it, then goes so loud you almost have to turn it down.
When the laptop is plugged in the problem seems to vanish and the volume is constant.

Does anyone know what might be the problem? Software, hardware? I appreciate any replies.


A:Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 Audio loud/quiet

I have had the same issue with my inspiron 11 3000 series. Very annoying. It has the Realtek HD sound system.
Between all the bugs in this computer's OS and Widows 10 this has been the worst computer I've ever owned. What happened to the old Dell? They used to make a reliable product with great customer service.

Hi everyone,
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop, and while I was using it tonight it suddenly turned off.
I know it wasn't because of overheating, because the computer was cool to the touch right after it shut off.
All I had open was Skype, and I was watching a video in Windows Media Player.
The specs: 4th-gen i7 CPU, 8gb ram, 1TB HDD
Devices plugged in: Samsung 21.5" monitor via HDMI, Logitech G430 via USB, Logitech G302 via USB, Acer keyboard via USB, Blue Snowball via USB.
The laptop was on AC power and was fully charged when this occurred.

What could've happened?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series sudden shut down?

Could have still been an overheating problem. The CPU has autosense heat protection and will shut it down and may do that even if the case is not hot to the touch.

I see a lot of USB ports being used, is this your usual setup? If you are watching a video, the USB mic did not need plugged in.

This started happening occasionally. Now it happens more frequently. If I leave my machine on overnight (or for an extended period of time) It will lose internet connection. It keeps connection with my Router (Charter Cable, Arris Model SBG 6580) and network, but has only limited connection. When I restart my machine, the connection returns to normal. My roommate is on the same network connection and he has no problems. My iPhone is also connected and it has no problems. I have a very infrequent router problem, but I know when this happens because everything goes down. I restart the router and all is well.
Do I need some kind of software or firmware update?
Do I have something running around inside my machine? My Anti Virus doesn't find anything nor my Anti Malware.

It depends on what you're looking for.  This is a  low end system that will never be a performance system.
If it has a conventional hard drive or hybrid hard drive, replace it with a solid state drive.  There's just about no other way to upgrade this system performance-wise.

OS: Win 7 Pro (64 bit)

I'm having two problems with my fairly new machine (less than half a year old) which appear unconnected, but I would like to clear up. First, the DVD drive stopped working and is not visible (described in the log as a controller error). I have attempted to rewrite the registry entry for the drive, and while it temporarily does work, after a restart it disappears again.

The second problem is relating to packet loss on my router. I would like to be able to exclude the possibility that the packet loss is owing to a trojan/virus/etc. Following a google search, I happened upon a thread on this forum from someone with a similar problem, who was recommended to run a diagnostic using the tools which you suggest. I have now done this as well in the hope that either or perhaps both of these issues can be resolved (should they be owing to malware/trojan/etc.).

Thank you very much for your time!

I turn on my laptop and the dell logo pops up and it just goes to a black screen with only my cursor being visible. The other day it was working just fine, then later on the fan starts getting really loud and I turn it off and turn it back on. This is when my nightmare starts, I turn it back on and stays on the dell logo and says "diagnosing your pc". The fan is still running loud, then after a few hours trying to get it work, the fan just stops making noise altogether. I run the system diagnostics and it says my fan and hard drive won't respond. I open up my laptop to what's internally wrong with the fan and hard drive. All I see is the fan doesn't spin, but after several minutes it starts to. I don't see why it says my hard drive won't respond when I fully inspected it and there was no visible damage whatsoever. I put everything back together and keep trying and which it being in the current result that is stated in the beginning. Only thing not mentioned is that the fan is just struggling to spin at a constant rpm. In the diagnostics even though the fan is somewhat spinning, it still indicates the fan and hard drive are unresponsive. This the worst thing for me right now because I'm looking for a job and start college soon.

Can someone help me solve these problems, especially the usb. I been using alot of flash cards and i can't connect them to transfer files.....

A:Nothing but problems with Lenovo n100 3000

You should go to the Lenovo Driver Matrix, to download and install all drivers listed, using the text explanations exactly.
When done properly, your Lenovo 0768-A49 will work just fine.
As a shortcut, you can install the Systems update 3.14 by your model:
. C200
Or you can connect to the Lenovo site and let their system tell you what you need and install it for you.
Basically, you need the Chipset most importantly, being sure your BIOS is up to date.
The Matrix will show you exactly what you need... it can be as many as 35 download installs, depending on your exact model.
Or you can buy the Lenovo WXP Professional disk set by telephone for less than $50 including shipping.

It is a Lenovo 3000 N200 - 3 years old
Money a bit tight but would get a new laptop if this is too expensive to fix - An IT guy looked at breifly said I need a new hardrive. My battery also needs changed as it needs to be constantly plugged in.

Any tips on this situation would be greatly appreciated? any way I can fix this myself or is it a complete gonner? Also any price guides on getting it fixed? Hardrive and battery cost?
I have seen some laptops for 300 pounds on


A:BSOD - Lenovo 3000 n200

On the Battery - I've had good luck and bad luck on buying batteries on eBay. Would I do it again? Yes. Would I go through with returning the battery if it failed as opposed to just eating the cost if it happened again? Yes. haha. That one was my bad but the people I dealt with were very considerate.

The downfalls - I've had a 'non-factory' battery purchased off of ebay work wonders for my Dell Inspiron 6400 but I bought one for my wife's Compaq CQ-60 and the battery connectors did not make good enough contact within the laptop. I could have sent it back but didn't and just bought an aftermarket one from Batteries Plus.

For your battery just do a quick search on eBay for 'battery' and your particular laptop brand & model to get a pricing idea.

The hard drive shouldn't be difficult if you wanted to replace it yourself however it would also involve you installing the operating system, finding all of the drivers for your system to run, etc. If that is something you are willing to do or you feel confident in doing I suggest it. I would use a good computer of a friends or relative's to acquire all of the drivers prior to taking this on yourself though. If you find it difficult to find (at least the major drivers like NIC, VGA, Sound) then I would probably suggest having a tech do it. It is no good to you to waste your time trying to fix it yourself and then taking it too a tech firm afterwards and then they take your money t... Read more

Hi.I've got some problems with my computer. 1. Due to some unexplainable reason, whenever I type something on the keyboard, all my USB ports stop working for the time I'm typing. When I stop typing it takes a few seconds to recognize the USB device currently attached and it starts working again.  2. Another problem is with my sound driver. It's kind of messed up. I can't hear any sounds from the speakers unless I've plugged in headphones. And while they're plugged in I can hear sound from both, the speakers and the headphones. At the moment I've disabled front panel jack detection and I can hear sound from the speakers without having to plug anything in, although when I do, I don't hear sound from the headphones, but still from the speakers. 3. I haven't been able to find any working drivers for my SD card reader. 4. The driver for the fingerprint reader does not work. The device manager shows that I have AuthenTec AES2501A installed but when going to Biometric devices in the control panel, it says that Windows didn't find any biometric devices. 5. I've been unable to get my bluetooth device to work. I've tried adding a new device and it can't find any, even when I have several working near the comupter. Also, trying to see all the devices I have connected to via Bluetooth, the window pops up and never stops loading. Without showing any devices. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. Lenovo 3000 N100 0689. I would appreciate some hel... Read more

For the past 3 days, once/day, my Lenovo 3000 N200 shuts off by itself in the middle of use. It gives no warning signs and simply shuts off. I have also noticed over the past several months that the computer will only last a few minutes without being plugged in despite a full battery charge. Am not sure if this is related or not but I have had the computer plugged in every time it has shut off inexplicably. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong and what I need to check into?


A:Lenovo 3000 N200 shuts off by itself

Some more details: I am usually multi-tasking when this happens and the fan seems very active at the time it shuts off. Could the computer think it is overheating for some reason and how can I check this? It does not feel particularly warm anywhere.

I'm going from Vista to 7. I installed 7 and it worked without flaw, through new program installs and updates and other tasks you need to do when installing a OS. I shut it off for the night and when i tried to reboot it wouldn't recognize the Hard drive. I have to access whatsoever to the Hard drive. I tried a reinstall but that only goes so far because i have to remove the Hard drive.

any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Heelp with Install. Lenovo 3000 N200

Check the cabling and jumpers to make sure the connection is good. Set it as single hard drive on cable, jumpered Master. See if it shows up in BIOS under HD's.

Download and burn to CD GWScan which is best version of WD Digital Lifeguard: GWSCAN 5.12 Unzips to C:Cabs where you can find ISO to burn.

Run the full HD CD scan, then boot into Win7 DVD or Repair CD, press Shift F10 to open a Command Line, type chkdsk /f then sfc /scannow. System Repair Disc - Create

If Win7 still won't start, boot into DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept offered repair. If fails, boot back in click through to Startup Repair to run up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts. If not, report back with exact error messages.

Hi everyone,

I have recently acquired a Lenovo 3000 N100 768-BXG and like many people with the N100 have massive USB problems.

Now I have read up and discovered that this is a problem with the BIOS which seems to affect all the available BIOS except the 1.08 version for machines preloaded with Vista - well I have the 2.06 BIOS for machines preloaded for XP.

I have read that I can flash the BIOS to an earlier version designed for the C200 (specifically that contained in the 63af02us.exe update, DL20102A.WPH) which is I think the 1.02 BIOS - then I can reboot and it will then allow me to flash to the fixed (ie: USB working properly!) 1.08 BIOS.

Now for the meat of the question: I have installed Win7 on the laptop as it came with no HDD thus no recovery partition etc. Do I have to wipe this install and install WinXP Pro in order to perform the BIOS flash? Can it be done from Win7 safely or at all?

I have never flashed any BIOS except my router although I am fairly confident that I have read and understood everything required. My problem is that I don't really understand the detail of BIOS and am only able to post this due to scouring other people's posts on this and other forums.

Can anyone out there confirm that I have the process correct, and answer my questions?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me


EDIT: The laptop has no battery at all - I know it is recommended to have a charged battery before BIOS flashing but is it essen... Read more

A:Help resolving USB problem with Lenovo 3000 N100?

If there is a downloadable Windows based bios flashing utility from Lenovo for your model laptop you should be able to use it to flash the bios without much trouble, regardless of the Windows version installed. Don't worry about having no battery installed. Bios flashing should never be done on battery power alone. If the laptop can boot from the CD/DVD you could flash the bios using a CD/DVD image. You will also have an option to back up the current bios to a file. If the bios flashing fails, the laptop may be rendered useless, so no recovery can be attempted

Hi Experts, I installed windows 10 64 bit version on my Lenovo 3000 Y410 and also installed drivers that came with the laptop when I first bought in compatible mode as Windows vista. Even then wifi is not working properly and speech recognition for cortana is not working. After searching for drivers in lenovo site and for any help in forums I found that my laptop is legacy system which is no more supported by Lenovo and found this link.  I would like to know if I can use any other Lenovo drivers that is closest to Lenovo 3000 Y410.

I have an Lenovo 3000 N100 Notebook, TYPE: 0768-04U which came loaded with Vista operating system. The battery that came with it was DOA so I ordered a new battery from Lenovo which is working fine.

The issue I'm experiencing is as follows:

After using the notebook where everything is working just fine. No devices with any issues, I go through a normal shutdown and leave the notebook off for a day or two with the new battery in (fully charged) and the power cable plugged in.

Upon trying to boot up, the Rescue & Recovery process kicks off automatically and Vista will not boot. However, if I take the battery out and unplug the power chord and leave it sitting for a day or so and then put the battery back in and plug the power chord in, it boots up with Vista with no problems.

Anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this or what to do to remedy this situation?

Greetings, This isa free laptop, Lenovo 3000 N100. I bought a power supply for it. It was running a Non-Genuine version of Windows 7 so I formatted and installed Puppy Linux. Problem: The fan runs for a couple of seconds during bootup, then no more. The laptop will shutdown randomly, I assume from overheating but I don't know that. The battery is dead so I pulled it out and am running straight off the power supply. I pulled the fan out and taped (3) 1.5V batteries together, hooked some leads to them and found that the fan runs fine and continuously. I cleaned out all dust found in the air vent. This has not fixed the problem. Something is telling the fan to shut off. Don't know if this is a motherboard problem or what? It is so far a free computer aside from the power supply. Any ideas? Thanks,Doug

A:Lenovo 3000 N100 Fan Runs 2 seconds

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
The fan problem maybe why the computer was free especially if you dumpster dived it.
With the fan wired to the batteries does the computer still shut down randomly?  You could also see if Linux has any apps or software for temperature monitoring to confirm overheating.  If overheating is an issue you should probably renew the thermal paste and see that the heat sink is securely mounted.  Either of those can lead to high temperatures.  If overheating is not an issue it just might be that the computer isn't getting hot enough for the fan to kick in for additional cooling.
