Press and hold the power button down for about 5 secs. The computer will shut down. Restart it and right click on the desktop, go to properties then look for screensaver tab , then choose power options, click on hibernation tab at the top and uncheck enable hibernation. Or choose stanby options and choose a longer time before the computer goes to sleep.

There is a problem with this website's security certificate


N.B. This problem may be related to Lenovo's Superfish malware.

If you are having trouble accessing GMAIL or Google when you get the following message:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate

on a Lenovo laptop and you have followed the advice about resetting your clock and it still does not work ...

I suggest the following

1) Remove the bundled Norton or McAfee anti-virus
2) Enable Microsoft Defender
How to turn on Windows Defender in Windows 8 and XP Vista and 7
3) Run a full scan.
4) You will see that Microsoft Defender will find and quarantine some Lenovo software that opens up a security hole (a man in the middle attack).
5) Have Microsoft Defender delete the offending software.
6) Reboot.

The problem should now be gone.

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity The computer will power-down and turn off unnecessary systems, including the monitor, while keeping the memory active so it can start back up quickly and still have all programs up that were being used prior to entering sleep mode. While this is a helpful feature that can extend the battery life of a laptop, it can result in errors where the computer won't power back up. You can usually solve the problem quickly.

Look for a sleep-specific key on the keyboard. It will usually be near the top row and have a symbol of a moon on it. Press this key as some laptops only respond to that command to come out of sleep mode. Press the "Enter" key to see if that will cause the computer to respond. Move the mouse back and forth several times and click the mouse button. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds if the previous methods have not worked. This is another common method for exiting sleep mode for many laptops. It may also trigger a full computer restart which would also solve the sleep mode problem. Unplug the laptop and remove its battery.
Reinsert the battery and then plug the laptop back in.

This should cause a full restart when the power button is pressed. Download the latest video drivers from the website for your video card manufacturer. Old drivers can sometimes cause problems with the laptop's power functions. See if your computer manufacturer has an updated BIOS on its website. The BIOS (basic input/output system) is the firmware that controls the initial boot processes for your laptop. Computer companies will release updated BIOS firmware if they get multiple complaints of boot or power problems. The BIOS interfering with Windows Power Manager is a frequent cause of sleep mode problems. Adjust your BIOS settings by rebooting the computer and pressing the appropriate function key when prompted on start up. It will normally be F1, F2 or F3, and you will often see a message during start up saying to press that key to enter the BIOS. Experiment with the BIOS settings by scrolling through the menu and locating Power Management. Increase the amount of time the BIOS allows before hibernating to make sure it is higher than the the Windows power setting. This can help eliminate conflicts between the BIOS and Windows concerning power shutdowns.

My speakers work but my headphone jack won't


The Solutions that will mostly work :

1) Go to sleep mode - wake up ! - tada !! the headphone jack will work again .. I know it sounds crazy.. i had the same problem.. (ie speakers onboard worked while headphones jack didnt work) usually restarting solves any problem, but this time even a restart did not worked while putting the laptop on standby(sleep) mode and waking it up worked !!

2) If the above does not work, uninstall the sound drivers from device manager - restart the computer - then let windows detect appropriate drivers by itself. Sometimes the Sigmatel drivers(which are provided by manufacturer) do not work well compared to windows vista's HD sound drivers. May solve the issue... Do not worry doing this, in the worst scenario you can always download and reinstall the dell drivers from dell support page.

Please update on sutarianiral@gmail.com if the problem gets solved..

When I select sleep or hibernate mode - the monitor stays black...


Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
