There are many ways to connect, to the www.
wifi is but one of many. wifi,ethernet, wlan 3G, and usb wifi and more.
what OS you run w8 or w10>.?
was it upgraded from 8 to 10?
are you at home? or off the grid? if at home do you have wifi in your home?
click the wifi logo in the wifi task bar, see any wifi near you.?
yes, then is your wifi SSID name there? that you own.>

first if running windows
click start and control panel
the click, device manager
is the wifi there , looking ok,
not unknown
not red/yellow marked. errors?

this PC was sold new 2012
some with w7 then w8 and with a w10 assists package from
read the users guide yet
there 3 here

windows 8.1 is the odd duck with charm-bar deviance's.

guide 1, page 15
what I do is press windows key, to make w8
act normal. (like all other non w8 do)
then step
Tap or click the wireless network icon
to go farther you need a wifi router at home
and know your broadcasted SSID wifi name (yours)
then your login credentials.
if you router has WPS ,this is more easy. (button marked WPS)

Slow internet on lenovo u350

There are so many reasons can cause a Lenovo U350 running slow than it used to, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down your Lenovo's performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it. So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software.

Over 10+ small utilities packed into one to help detect & fix all slowdowns in 1 click.

Lenovo ideaPad U260 built in mic doesn't work

Hello, "Ana Gonzalez".
Your problem sounds like you don't have the software setup right.
Since you could post your problem here,
I suggest that you either use the Lenova website to research this,
or check out the website for their support options.
I've seen a number of systems with software settings improperly applied, causing the microphone to malfunction.
Or to cease to function at all.
Without either a screenshot or the exact name and version of the software, its not possible to more precise.
However, IF you can open the software for the audio control, the volume, and the mic, then you should check to make sure that it is setup correctly.
Hopefully helpful,

Subject: No wireless connection from router cannot connect to the Internet.
Solutions: Straight Connection, Windows Connecter and Microsoft Fixit

Discussion: I'm going to provide you with three solutions and between them you should get online. However, you should be advised that in order to fully analyze and correct any difficulties you're having, we should be chatting or on a telephone connection. All I really know at this point is that you can't connect to the Internet through your router.

I'm going to give you three FREE general fixes and let's hope that one of them will work for you. If not, then we have to chat.

Now, let's see if I can help you.

The first solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.

Begin by turning on your computer and your router

? Make sure your service provider has activated your account and services on the subscribed line. Please check with your service provider to confirm this.
? Make sure that you are using the latest drivers. You can download the latest driver from Driver Downloads Database.
? Make sure that you have entered the right username and password (case-sensitive) as given by your service provider. For example, in Australia: user@bigpond; in NZ:
? Open Internet Explorer;
? Click on 'Tools';
? Click on 'Internet Options';
? Click on 'Connections';
? Click on 'Setup'
? Click on 'I want to set up my Internet connections manually . . .';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'I connect through a local area network (LAN);
? Clock on 'Next'
? Click on 'Next' [This is not an error];
? Click on 'No';
? Click on 'Next';
? Click on 'To connect to the Internet immediately . . .; and,
? Click on 'Finish'.

That should have you online.

However, if the first solution doesn't get you connected, do the following:
• Click on tools again.
• Click on 'Diagnose Connection Problems'
• and follow the instructions.

The second suggested solution is to use the Setup Wizard. It seldom works for me but you might have more luck than poor me. Here are the instructions:

The Connect to the Internet wizard will guide you through the steps of setting up an Internet connection.

Open the Connect to the Internet wizard by:

• Clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button
• Click on Control Panel.
• In the search box, type network,
• Click "Network and Sharing Center"
• Click Set up a new connection or network
• Then double-click "Connect to the Internet".

The third solution requires an Internet connection. I'm going to pass on to you a FREE and hard to believe program from Microsoft called Microsoft Fixit! I have no idea why this little program hasn't been advertised but then I don't own their stock.

Just click on the following link and your problem should be solved: Download Microsoft's Fixit

You'll see the following areas in which Microsoft Fixit can solve software , hardware and just about every other problem you may incur. They are:

Top Solutions Windows Internet Explorer Windows Media Player

Entertainment Office Other

I suggest that you try top solutions and 'automatic' before exploring the other titles.

Be a hero and fix your friends' computers; just don't tell them how you did it! That will be our little secret.

All the best

Sounds like you have dislodged the monitor cable. It can be reseated by removing the screen bezel and the section above the keyboard, and ensuring that the connections are tight.

If it's still flickering after rechecking the connections, then you may have damaged the cable or connections.

Welcome to FixYa!

This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,

1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter

2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds

3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.

4. Check if you will see any difference.

5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.

If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

How do you install the keyboard and mouse with detailed instructions

You generally plug it in to a USB port, push the connect button on the transmitter (if it has a button) and push the connect button on the mouse and on the keyboard (buttons are on the bottom).
Don't forget to put fresh batteries in.
If there was a disk that came with it, run the setup program. Win & should see the devices.
