W520 build quality and warranty

So I contacted Lenovo to have this repaired W520 (left speaker and fan). They pick up today.

But now I regret that didn't report any issues with the quality of construction. I thought there is nothing that they can / will do about and build quality are not covered by this warranty. But now I think to myself, it's quite unacceptable (and embarrassing) that my previous laptop, a Fujitsu-Siemens, which cost 500 euros in 2005, has better quality of construction than a Thinkpad 1600EUR of 2011. Is this thing supposed to compete with the Macbook or not? There are many signs of coward and seams, and open the lid, lift, now or in any way manipulate the computer feels very painful and terrifying to all the noises, he does. I find myself being extremely careful whenever I'm moving or touch this thing. Not convenient.

The bezel of the screen is very loose almost completely, and I'm afraid he'll let dust come into the camera over time. Rubber thingies (sorry for my English) on the bezel are not symmetrical, those left and top look good, but the one on the right is just a half.

Opening the lid almost always makes a rattling of the left hinge. The left hinge has such a hold tight on its axis it came loose from the base, and moves a little during the handling of the cover. Sometimes, the hinge is so tight that it's a cracking noise when I'm trying to move the lid, which may damage the screen. The right hinge is perfect and again when you move the lid.

Seams and loose panels can be a simple aesthetic question in the area of the left speaker, where it is natural and understandable that thermal expansion causes some... vagueness. But I find it unacceptable that palmrest produced squeaky noises annoying when my hands are in normal positions of typing. The seam between the Palm and the lower panel is pretty loose almost completely.

Cover closed, the left corner remains significantly higher than the right. May be related to the asymmetry in the tightness of the hinge.

Lifting of the computer, if you're holding it in the area of the bottom in front Fn and shift keys, the background often makes a strong sound cracking, as if there was a crack in the motherboard or something. After that, the movement of the cover plays the sound. Very concerning and boring.

I think it should cover. So my question is, is this normal? Or could I get these fixed under warranty?

If you have problems of scope screen with fit and finish and the hinge you can ask warranty on it as long as it is not induced by the user.

  • I can't create an installer, after install the Vision Builder demo and then uninstall it. I can't create a Labview Installer more, he asks me an installer of generator of Vision, even if Labview my program does not have nothing to do with it...

    I can't create an installer on LabView, after install the Vision Builder demo and then uninstall it. I can't create a Labview Installer more, he asks me an installer of generator of Vision, even if Labview my program does not have nothing to do with it...

    Hi, Shada, this can happen if you include additional installers to your installer for example DAQmx. When you do this the installation program must include other files like MAX (Measuremente and Automation Explorer). Probably when you installed Vision Builder he updated MAX, so when your Installer try to understand MAX, his request the source where it was installed in your computer in this case Vision Builder.

    Here you can cache information so it is not asked once again, or you can download a version more recent fo DAQmx, then it will update MAX and change the dependecy.

  • I am running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build) 2600 and have a lot of problems.

    Hi all

    I am running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build) 2600 and have loads and loads of problems. Windows keeps hung and everything I tried didn't seem to help.
    I brought this second hand from a company computer, I used to work and I don't have the original installation cd or rescue disk. I meet a lot of problems and everything takes forever to load and work. I was advised to run maleware, spyware, antivirus and defrag on the computer analyses and I did all that and nothing works. Also, when I tried to run the system restore it wouldn't let me, and when I try to run the scan disk after a reboot it does not work. As a last effort, I tried running SFC and it looked as if it was working, but then it asked me for the initial startup disk, that I don't have. so I tried to cancel it, but now every time that I reboot/restart my computer load SFC and I have to start the entire process. Also, none of my cd drives work. Please help me
    Also, I'm now a message that says minimum virtual memory is very low.
    I would be very grateful for any help or advice anyone can offer us on these issues. a million thanks in advance.

    Hello

    1 how long have you been faced with this problem?
    2. don't you make changes on the computer before this problem?
    3. what exactly happens when you try to run the scan disk or system restore? You receive an error message? If yes then after return the exact error message.

    No software XP, Microsoft no longer offers that you will need to make arrangements for windows XP windows installation CD. You can check the question in the clean boot state.

    From your computer by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs so that you can determine if a background program is interfering with your game or program. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot".

    Reference:

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:
    1. click on start and then click Run.
    2. type msconfig and click OK.

    The System Configuration Utility dialog box appears.

    3. click on the tab general, click Normal Startup - load all services and device drivers and then click OK.
    4. When prompted, click on restart to restart the computer.

  • Poor quality and poor framerate with best export settings

    Hello, this is my first post, I searched the forums, watch videos on youtube, etc, but don't never came across something like this before, but anyway let's get down to the heart of the problem at a time!

    I am currently using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 (Version 6.0.2)

    Specifications of the PC

    -Intel Core i7-4720HQ CPU @ 2.60 GHz

    -16 GB OF RAM

    GTX - 960 M graphics card

    The problem:

    I have been using CS6 6 months now and not had a problem since day one.

    The videos that I do are gameplay videos captured at 60 fps 1080 p with 36857 Kbps Total bitrate.

    The videos where export with large 60 fps framerate, quality, as it should in the first place.

    But everything changed one day after I did everything with the same agenda, as I did each time and video when exported was of poor quality and the rate was 30 frames per second.

    BUT, when I am trying to check the properties of the video exported, everything is as I put is on the export settings, even if the vacuum has dicreased quality and bad frame rate (30 fps) up.

    I am exporting as follows:

    -Format: H.264

    -Basic video settings:

    -Width: height of 1920 1080

    -Frame rate: 59.94

    -Order of fields: Progressive (it doesn't let me change it)

    -Appearance: Square Pixels (1.0)

    Tv - standard: NTSC

    -Profile: high

    -Level: 4.2

    -Rendering to maximum depth (verified)

    Flow settings:

    -Bitrate VBR, 2 pass encoding (I also made 2 pass, but had the same effect)

    -Target speed [Mbps]: 36,82

    -Maximum Bitrate [Mbps]: 62.5

    Advanced settings:

    -Key Frame Distance 72 (verified)

    Use maximum quality rendering (verified) use Previews (verified)

    I finally understood everything!

    So when I started the project for some reason, I had chosen under the option 'Make and video playback' Renderer: Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA) instead of Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (Open CL).

    After that everything worked perfectly as it should in the first place.

    Thanks to everyone who tried to help me understand my annoying error!

  • How to change the format of VOB file without loss of quality and file size of balloon?

    I try to save a VOB file on a problematic DVD using first Pro CC 2015. Can anyone help me please with selecting the best export settings?

    My goal is to maintain the quality and size of the file as close to the original as possible. I just need to change the file format to something I can easily view on my computer. Sometimes, he tries to simply change the extension from VOB to MPEG, but in this case, I edited (shortened) the original file so need to save again.

    Most of the output options I tried drastically reduce quality or seriously enlarge the size of output file.

    First gives me the following information from the source:

    Type: MPEG Movie

    File size: 675,20 MB

    Image size: 360 x 288

    Frame rate: 25.00

    Audio Format: 48000 Hz - compressed - stereo

    Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - stereo

    Total time: 00:59:22:02

    Format of the pixels: 1.0940

    AVI, quality 100 gives a file size of 12 GB. Source H.264 match - high bitrate gives a file size of 2 GB. Where does all that extra data?

    Match sequence settings should be an obvious solution, but it gives me a slightly larger file (706,98 MB) with a sharp drop in quality.

    If I select H.264, corresponds to the size of the original image and approach the source of all other settings as I can, the size of the resulting file is still much greater than if I drop the transmission speed. However, first does not show me bitrate of the source until I put it to maintain the same quality?

    I want just the same file in a different format so that I can view them easily. Simple yet I have not been able to find a solution. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you very much, Berne

    You can not avoid re-encoding. His first mpeg will not give you made smart on mpeg.

    You need a different program if al you want to do is trim down.

    Match sequence settings does exactly what it says. Your sequence (each) works with a codec to preview.

  • disconnect hosts to vCenter Server 5.1.0 Build 947673 and appear as does not not after 45 seconds (always)

    I have a very strange installation, it has been stable for 6 months, I don't know if it's conciendence after the implementation of POS, but now after 45 seconds, the hosts to build 799733 ESXi 5.1.0 disconnect from vCenter Server 5.1.0 build 947673 and appear as does not.

    I can right-click on each host and deliver a Connect and servers are re-connected and then after 45 seconds, appear as the not responding again.

    The vCenter is a virtual machine, on the cluster of two hosts, use VMXNET3 interface, fully patched.

    Since the vCenter server at the time of her disconnects or does not, I do not see timeouts ping to vCenter VM guests hosts, I can also connect directly to the ESXi servers with vSphere Client and there, no problem, I still connected.

    DNS is correct, default gateway is correct, used data base is installed by default with vCenter (simple installation), SQL Express, database is not full or has reached its limit.

    nothing to the Windows event log.

    things tried

    1 rebooted ESXi hosts

    2. restart network management officers

    3 upgrade vCenter Server to build build 947673

    4 restarted vCenter Server

    5. stop all virtual machines, except vCenter Server including POS.
