Need Some Key Basic Tests For A Win 8 Laptop

Recommended Posts

For a Lenova u310, I need to know what are the key basic tests to run on it to see if there's anything wrong with it.

 

Got it from someone. Appears to be a mistake.

Lenova u310 not making any sounds, or does so temporarily, then no more. Need some basic troubleshooting steps for audio.

 

Device seems fine.

 

Yes, volume is maxed. And unmuted.

A typical issue with notebooks is the "blanking contact" in the external sound socket (the one you plug in external speakers or headsets).

The socket is used normally much more than on desktops, and there is in it a small springy contact that is supposed, when the plug is in to disconnect the internal speakers.

It is common that some dirt/oxidation prevents this to make contact when the plug is removed.

So the advice is to first thing test with an external device (speakers/headset) and clean (with some contact cleaner) the socket.
