As in used SO-DIMM socket, module slide in place (in up direction on photo) almost itself by own weight. For new socket, some reasonable insertion force must be applied (about 4 kg) in up (related to photo direction) in 30 degree until it fit in socket and then easy push it down to click. As example, look how deep inserted module fits in socket. Don't ...

Normally ram in laptops is slotted in, at around a 35-45 degree angle, and then it'll 'click' down into place - on the second slot this angle can change hugely too - so just try wiggling the ram in place gently to see if you can see a way it'll fit and then click down into place.

If your laptop came with Windows 10, then I suppose Microsoft Update should be the best option in terms of stability, and a fairly good option for "up-to-dateness". Downloading drivers from OEM websites like Lenovo's would not be as good in terms of "up-to-dateness" but if your OEM is officially supporting Windows 10 (as the default operating system), then ...

Frequently vendors test compatibility with existing memory modules thats fit. And not update documentation when bigger modules arrive. But it can be locked in "BIOS". Look for user expirience. Lenovo Y700 contains two SO-DIMM slots. Users reports upgrade to 32 Gb (2x 16Gb) Do it on Your own risk. But You risk just in cost of new RAM modules.

It is neither dangerous nor harmful. Note that I am assuming that you are using a good-quality mains adapter, preferably from the laptop manufacturer. The reason a good-quality adapter costs more is that more care is taken in designing and making it, and better parts are used to make it. What you are feeling is caused by a very small, not physically ...

For a laptop, you have an average temperature, which means you're on the safe side for a normal usage. However, the temperature will go up if there is more data processing, also there is a small heat lack. The average temperature in a normal usage should be between 21-40 C to all of your hardware, that includes motherboard. Some hardware can handle more ...

It should work - and if it doesn't, the screen just won't turn on. Computers query the resolutions of monitors to negotiate the best possible resolution supported by the monitor (even for VGA connections - using EDID). EDID predates your laptop. Unless you specifically override the negotiation, the screen can't be damaged, and even then, its most likely ...

It sounds like Windows picked a default driver that didn't exactly match up. You can try a couple ways to update the driver: 1) The best way to fix this is IF the keyboard came with driver disc install the drivers off that disc. If not look and the mfg tag on the back of the keyboard and it should give you the make and model and you can pull the driver off ...

I'd suggest checking the boot order. When your laptop starts, hold down the button to open the BIOS config (typically F2 or F12, depends on your computer). Use the keyoard to navigate, the actual keys to use are listed at the bottom of the screen. Find a "Boot" or "Startup" tab (or something like that, again, depends on your computer). Look for something ...

I was able to disable "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in the Power Management properties of the USB controller. Now the two USB 3.0 ports (with the high-power indicator) both charge my phone while the laptop is in sleep mode (not "off" as I indicated in the original question)

If you want to replace Ubuntu, just fire up the Win7 installer. It gives you the option to format the drive and set the size of the partition.

I know you posted this a while ago, but I had the exact same issue - Acer Aspire v15 Nitro with Win 10 connecting to a Fritzbox. After playing around for a while, I found simply downgrading the driver was what fixed it for me.

Well, there's the obvious: Connector. But if it fits, then there shouldn't be anything else besides voltage and amps. This to me sounds like there's something more to it. Is your laptop able to power up from the charger without the battery in? If that's the case, the charge circuitry could be at fault, or the battery itself.

Just had this problem. Luckily, the solution was simple. I popped out the offending keys using a delicately placed pencil. I then spotted a hair and removed it. Popped the keys back in and voila - good as new.

One more possibility: Does your laptop charger have a Linetek LS-15 cable attached to it? If the cord was made between mid-2010 and mid-2012, chances are good it's affected by a recall, which was due to a defect causing a possible internal short in the cable and a fire hazard. This, too can cause the adapter to trip the circuit breaker. If your AC adapter'...

Take a thermometer and measure the outgoing air of the laptop, if it's different than the temperature readings in your software/BIOS, then it's possible that the temperature sensors on the motherboard are bad. If they are bad, you can try and set your BIOS so that it doesn't shutdown the system for another 20°C, if you do that though, I highly recommend ...

The breaker cuts off when the current through it exceed nominal value at nominal temperature. If cold it breaks slightly later, in hot slightly earlier. That's how it works. That means you have oveloaded the net. You can overload it by using power demanding devices at once - for example fridge is on, micorwave is on, washer is on and you connect the laptop. ...

Many electrical devices can cause voltage spikes on the mains, transient electromagnetic fields, or both, when they are switched on or off - especially anything that contains an inductor such as the windings of a motor, a transformer, or the magnetic ballast found in older fluorescent lights.

A gaming size laptop might have a 45Watt supply which might be able to briefly generate 200Watts of power demand at startup. That's enough to overload a magnetic circuit breaker if you have 2200 watts of demand from other devices on the circuit like say an air-conditioner and a microwave oven. I wouldn't connect it to the computer side again without seeing ...

Is it tripping the circuit-breaker, or is it tripping the Residual Current Device (RCD)? the latter typically has a TEST button and a rating in mA. More likely there's a small earth fault with your charger/lead.

Get rid of it at once. Standard amp draw for a circuit breaker is 20A or more (check your breakers for the exact number, it is printed on). Your power supply should not be drawing anywhere near this much. That much current probably means it failed to a short circuit. 120V * 20A[lower limit of current draw] = 2400 watts. That's a minimum of 2.4x what a ...

More than likely. If the charger is consistently causing the breaker switch to trip, then it is probably fried. Dispose of it and purchase a replacement.

There is a host of devices which are involved in sleep/wake process in Windows. SO off the top of my head the not compatible devices you mentioned may very well be the problem.

Your monitor support two HDMI 1.4 inputs. These have a maximum resolution of 4096×2160p/30 Hz. Thus you do not need to use DP, but if you use HDMI then the refresh rate will be rather low.

Depending on the model of the power-line adapters you're using, you may not be able to have more than the two nodes on the system. There are some that will allow up to 64, but without knowing the model number of your adapters, the best I can do for you is guess. As for your speed issue, this would all depend on how much bandwidth each device is using as ...

Although charging anything directly from a solar panel without a buffer battery is never recommended, depending on implementation in a particular device it might be theoretically possible however unlikely to charge it with power and current lower than it usually expects.

The simple answer, probably a duplicate of other answers: Older batteries discharge faster when they are almost empty. When the battery is low enough that the PC needs to sleep, it is also ready to shutdown, so it just does that instead. Replace the battery, the problem is just going to get worse.

Laptops doesn't go shutdown when battery level is below 5%.when if reaches its lowest point it goes to sleep mode to protect your data. Mean while in sleep mode it consumes some energy. If it is beyond the extreme level, it does shutdown and you may loose your unsaved data. There are multiple ways to recover your unsaved data depends on type of applications.

My anecdote/answer: My brother had a laptop which was well over 8 years old with the original battery. This laptop would charge up to 100% and if you unplug it then you had about 3 minutes to plug it back in.
