Question about Lenovo 3000 V100 Notebook

1 Answer

Same problem, extremely annoying

This is extremely annoying. My power connection is not great and gets connected/disconnected very easily; as a result I get deaf when listening to the music, not to mention that the constant beeping annoys to no end.

Tried everything except from complete reinstallation of the OS (which is too extreme), nothing works. I'm using Windows XP.

No option in the bios; no mute PC speaker option on this laptop; no option in the power management (Windows XP), disabling beep in the devices doesn't help, and neither replacing default beep with a silence. Tried to reinstall sound drives and power managements - no change.

Quite seriously, if anyone considers to buy this model - the beep is so extremely annoying that I would suggest going to a different one, just because of it.

    Thanks, but I'm using windows XP on Lenovo 3000 (don't know which one of them is the reason) and there's no such thing as "Speakers properties > levels > mute pc beep".

    All I have is an option in "sounds and audio devices > advanced" where I can change the type of the speakers, which doesn't do anything. There's no "levels" or "mute pc beep" there.

    Thanks, I'm sure that'd work if I had Vista or PC :)

    I don't know if the following might give any clue, but this is how it works :

    If I connect the external speakers, the beeps go through them; means if I physically lower the volume to zero on the speakers, the beeps are not heard (but, of course, neither the music or other sounds).

    If I disconnect the external speakers, the beeps seemingly come from the internal speakers and they are much stronger than the normal sounds.

    On the volume panel I have "Volume", "Wave", "SW synch", "CD audio" and "Mic In", and "Volume" is the only one that affects the beeps - if I mute it, they aren't heard; however even it's even slightly above zero, the sound is very loud. There aren't additional options, I checked in the "advanced".

    :(

    Thanks to whoever has any ideas.

Hi,
Go to Speakers properties > levels > mute pc beep.

That should stop the annoying power beep but not the startup jungle.


Regards.

Protective mood


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Hopefully its not toast. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protective-mood-zb4bomd1rt4qms0dqd12kkt2-2-0.jpg

My vizio 26 inch flat screen has vertical lines when powered on


Hello,

All Plasma and LCD TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them
I hope this will help to solve the problem....

Throttle position sensor. How will bike perform with out it 04yz 250 F


Great question and pretty much depends on who you ask? some say great some say bike becomes flat and boggy but I believe it depends on what riding you do (all low end or all top end flat out) also I believe it depends on how good condition the rest of the bike is in first place will affect the result
I have seen results from people checking lap times before and after disconnect and overwhelmingly the lap times were better if connected? But saying that some guys still preferred it disconnected some guys didn't and some noticed no change at all?
just undo the the plug see what you think its easy to connect back up if no good and won't really hurt anything to test My suggestion is if you notice no change or notice bad result then run with connected after all Mr Yamaha went to a lot of trouble to put it there !

Cant get my computer to connect with my printer


Ensure that the cables are properly connected; you need to ensure that your printer is properly connected, and plugged in, and also the cable is accurately connected to the computer as well.
Check the power; make sure that the printer's power is switched on, ensure that all the computer necessary computer components are also turned on.
Make sure that the hardware is properly plugged in, and also turned on. Apply troubleshooting.
A troubleshooter is a tool, which is generated automatically and which can easily fix the problems that occur with your system.
Thus, if you are coming across different issues related to your printer, then you can consult the troubleshooter.
You require driver applications to run your hardware devices.
Make sure that the drivers are not outdated, corrupt, or incompatible, resulting in disrupting the communication between the printer and the computer.
Always make sure that you are making use of the most recent and latest device drivers, and also that are compatible with your system requirements and specifications, as this can be extremely useful in resolving printer issues.

The battery is fully charged. It works while connected to the mains, but if i turn it off and remove the power cord (so it works on the batteries) it won't turn on. However, it will turn on while connected...


Change the battery in it. It can be found online. It is easily accessed on the back of the radio, by unscrewing 2 philips screws. I had the same problem with mine, with an old battery. Once turned on, I could unplug it and it would play for 12-14 hours. Apparently the iPal needs a higher voltage when it turns on, so your old battery is not able to deliver that.

No internet


Have you tried testing by bypassing your router and connecting your computer directly? If you were not able to connect, then your internet service provider should be contacted.

Resets


this always happens to me when my battery wiggles loose. the little sliding catch that holds the battery isn't such a great design, and it easily slides out of it's "locked" position (particularly when i use the heavier extended-charge battery). resultantly, the battery momentarily disconnects and freaks out the operating system. this will happen even when the phone's in a travel case which i thought would hold the battery in place. But the amount of battery movement required for a disconnect is extremely slight. my resolution has been twofold: 1) i diligently backup everything to a 1GB SDcard weekly (they're very inexpensive now) using a great program named SPB Backup (very reliable); 2) i adheared a few pieces of clear plastic to the phone where the battery installs--this causes the battery to wedge more tightly against the sliding lock, and thereby keeps the lock from sliding loose. this hasn't been fullproof, but has cut down from several reboots per week to maybe once every 3 months.
