Lenovo Computers... | Answered Yesterday


I have only encountered this issue since using Audlogics software to remove duplicate files on my machine.

Nothing against Audlogics, I have used it before to remove duplicate images or mp3s without any problems.

This time I (maybe foolishly) scanned the entire machine and removed every duplicate file with every extension (whilst keeping an original)

Since then my machine crashes, especially when using Chrome, and gives this error upon restart. It will eventually restart.

It works fine in safe mode and does not crash at all.

I am about to go back in and try it in normal mode and run various software to see which one causes the crashes.

I'm confident that the hard drive is still fine though.

install the newest vlc player. copy and paste the line below into the url box:

when installing, click on all the file types and install, and it should play the dvd.
i personally would uninstall powerdvd as well, cos vlc plays just about anything i throw at it.
good luck

Restart your computer & start tapping f/8 immediately and keep tapping until black screen comes up. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode the press enter. It will start up in safe mode in each corner, the icons are all out of shape and a help window will open. Close that window. Then go to: Start, Accessories, System Tools, right click System Restore & send to desk top.(The reason to do that will be to use it easier ANYTIME you have a problem.) Then do a system restore back to a time before you had the problem. That should resolve it. If not you will have to do a Recovery after saving everything you want to keep on a Flash Drive. On start, type recovery & go there & follow directions.

To hard reset your tablet you will have to go to the recovery mode on your device and for that, you will have to Power Off your device and then click and hold on "Power and Volume Up or Down" for 2-4 seconds and after that you will feel a small vibration from your device and then leave the buttons and then you will see a recovery menu. Now using your Volume Buttons for Scrolling and Power button for selecting go to the Reset option and click on Power button and now it will ask for confirmation, click on Power button to confirm and after that, your device will do some operation and after that your device will reboot and it might take more than 4-5 minutes for the first boot so don't worry about that and now your device is successfully booted and everything is unlocked.

Either your Windows software has become corrupt or your harddrive is failing. Use your Windows installation disk to "repair" the software. If that doesn't sole the problem, reinstall Windows. If that doesn't solve the problem, your harddrive is shot and needs to be replaced.

It's a mechanical problem with the wiring and contacts along the edge of the screen. No "fix" except screen replacement.

When you lose video, either reload the driver or check for a broken video cable. A third possibility is your backlight bulb has failed. With laptop on, use a flashlight near the screen to see if you can see any dark images on the screen.

First...pick at the keys to unstick the stuck one.
You can always connect your harddrive to another computer as a slave and transfer all of your files to the computer.

Error code 36 means a ley is stuck. Only you can find out which one. Press each key in turn to feel if there is a dodgy key.

If laptop was bought a month ago, it may still be covered by store exchange policy. If so, just take it back to store for exchange. If you bought it with a credit card, it may also be covered by the credit card company for its exchange or repair. Also, if you bought an extended warranty when you did the purchase, it will cover not only repair but also replacement should repair not be possible. Finally, there is the manufacturer's warranty which typically is for one year from the date of purchase but you likely will have to ship at your expense to manufacturer's designated repair site.

If you choose to continue troubleshooting yourself, here are possible freezing causes...
1. hard disk drive has defective sectors (not likely but possible which is why there is exchange)
2. virus infection (pc usually come with a firewall and antivirus which you must activate)
3. conflict between two firewalls, two antivirus or two spyware/malware programs (suppose to only run one of each but often an antivirus program includes features like an internet security suite.)

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, Microsoft releases a free tool to address virus infections. The tool is called Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. It is usually downloaded in an infected computer's hard drive but if this cannot be done, the tool can be loaded into a USB stick or thumbdrive on another computer then inserted into the infected computer's USB port to be run. Microsoft also has online tools to scan and remove malware. For more information and download go to .... http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/malware-removal.aspx

ive no idea your plan or purpose, nor history.
no PC stated
no OS stated, is this windows XP you are asking about safe mode.
well safe mode turns off by itself if you get rid of the errors first.
or if booted, go in to (runbox) msconfig.

click boot tab
turn off safe boot.
not telling at least your OS version makes any answers vastly more hard, w10 is totally different.
