Welcome to Fixya

Try to restore the computer back to factory state instead of using the RCD. Turn off the computer then push the small button located beside the power button. The screen should show you the One key recovery. Select one key racovery then select restore from initial backup.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Lenovo G550 running Windows 7 won't connect to internet. "Default gateway is not available" message displays. I have 4 Vista computers using wireless connections all functioning fine, but this...


Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

Brand new lenovo 3000 G30 freezes in hibernate and sleep modes


Hi,
I'm not sure how the retail law works in your country but you have to take the computer back to Office Depot and demand your money back, don't bother trying to fix the computer.
If you have bought the computer within the last 7 days then I'm sure you are entitled to a full refund.
If you have bought the computer as refurbished then it may be more difficult to get a refund, you will have to check store policy first before approaching them.
Threaten them with the law if you have to. They say that Lenovo won't take it back? usually when you purchase a brand new laptop computer you are covered by at least 1 year's manufacturers warranty.
How come there is none on the laptop you have got.
I'm sure if you push hard enough you will get a refund, if you do, go elsewhere for a another laptop.


Regards.

Want to format my lenovo y410 notebook


it's possible but i strongly recommend not doing it.

the main problem is that there are usually not XP drivers written for computer components designed for vista. i've even tried to revert a couple laptops back to XP myself, and after a long struggle, got everything working besides audio - because XP does not support HD audio used in vista computers. and even to get the rest of the components working, i had to edit the driver inf files.

you can check the manufacturer web site to see if your model has XP driver support, but if they don't, like i said i would strongly recomment staying with vista.

One key recovery not working


This problem exist because once the 31GB default partition is formatted NTFS, it reduces in size. So, I found this solution.

1. Boot your machine with Ubuntu LiveCD
2. Go to Disk Utility and remove the C partition (31GB) and do not format it. Just RAW partition.
3. Now, Power off your lenovo Y410.
4. Press the NOVO key to start OneKey recovery and follow the prompts

You should get an option to recover sucessfully.

Enjoy
