P71 Fan very noisy

Hi

My P71 - running under Windows 10 Professional - is very noisy- seems to run rough or make a grinding noise
Is this a defect?
Is this just part of the laptop?
This started soon after the laptop was out of warranty.
Any ideas on what to do?

Re: BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe - How do I fix this?

I replaced the motherboard on the advice of the local "experts"

I guess the SSD which I have might be the cause.

have not had the problem for at least one day, so will pray, and pray, and pray

Then, change hard drives.

Thanks

BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe - How do I fix this?

Hi I am being plagued by the BSOD. Replaced the motherboard, no luck. Problem better at first, but after Windows updates installed everything was back to "Normal" ie foobar. I downloaded BlueScreenView, which identified ntoskrnl.exe as the problem. Does anyone have any idea on what to do next? Paul ...

Network Connection Speed W700ds

Hi

I am trying to establish the fastest network connection speed I can achieve on my W700ds (2757CTO).
The published specifications indicate that this is 1 gigabyte but add that this is "through the motherboard". Does this mean that I need to connect using the docking station to achieve this speed?

Wireless peer to peer networking difficulties T60 and T42p

Hi,

I am trying to set up a peer to peer network between my two notebooks, a T60 and a T42p.

I cannot get the two computers to communicate. Had no difficulty getting two T60s to see each other and communicate, however.

Any ideas?

What can one do with the Advanced Dock?

I have bought an Advanced Dock for use with my T60.
I would like to use all of the features which this piece of equipment offers, but am unable to find documentation describing how to do this.

Which PCI cards are compatible, and where can I read up on the obvious capabilities of the Advanced Dock?

Greatly appreciated

Thanks for the PDF instructions.

I had, in the meantime, used the Lenovo software upgrade facility and this has apparently cured the problem.

If not, I will run the instructions in the PDF
