On my laptop T420 thinkpad

I would like to know what does this key do the FN + SysRq
It seems not to be working?
I can get the PrtSc key to work just find for copy and paste the screen to the clipboard and into wordpad.


thanks
Spiderman!


I also would like to know if I should install these software updates on this laptop too
here is a screen shot. I think I have them all ready up to date.

The SysRq key normally does nothing, so it appears to be working perfectly. <g>

I don't use or recommend SHAREit, REACHit, AMT, Access Connections, Wireless Display or Message Center Plus so I wouldn't install any of those. I would however install the Intel Chipset support and Win7 Updates. Scott.

the only one that it did not download and install was the windows 7 update module KB2661796 64BIT. I try to install it manually but it said this see photo and what does that mean. ?

I'd probably install the display and WLAN drivers but not the password manager. Scott.

I wouldn't worry about it since it said it wasn't intended for your system. Scott.

The miniport adapters are there to allow the PC to be used as a hotspot via a "virtual" adapter: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/librar ... 85%29.aspx

If I wasn't going to use that functionality I might uninstall the virtual adapters: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht081547

Solution

Instructions on how to uninstall Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapters from the Device Manager:

Download the Intel Wireless LAN software file for your system from Lenovo eSupport download site and extract the file onto your system.
Run the Intel WLAN software installer using autorun.exe or setup.exe.
Select “modify install”.
Uncheck “Intel My WiFi Technology”, then click Next.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the modify installation.
After installation is completed, one Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter remains in the Device Manager as expected.
Open a command prompt as an administrator.
Type the command “netsh wlan set host mode=disallow” and press Enter.
The other Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapter disappears from the Device Manager.
Restart Windows.

You pick the latest driver for your specific WiFi adapter and OS. Most likely that is the 2nd one in the list, check the readme file to be sure. Scott.

Is there a reason that you would want to uninstall the virtual adapters.

right now I have the wireless shut off on my T420 laptop computer. I'm use hardware Ethernet with DSL its faster then wireless internet i think. Yeah I know cable internet is faster in some ways but in someways the DSL is faster because on cable internet access you have your next door people on and that would slow down the speed of the internet too and then can also snoop on what you are doing on less some thing have change with that. But I like DSL it does the job for me. As far as the virtual adapters it really don't bother me but I just want to know why would you uninstall them for are they really that bad. And one more thing I found out that was not working right was the built in microphone. so I update the Audio drivers and that got it took work. So If anyone of you guys out there have any problems with the Lenovo thinkpad laptop computer T420 come here and me and scott will walk you though it. read what Scott help me with and this computer is now faster then when I first got it speed things up and clear things up too.

Thanks

SPIDERMAN.

You might want to uninstall them if you don't want to create a PAN (Personal Area Network) and use your laptop as a hotspot for other devices to connect to (a potential security risk). If your wireless network adapter is off then this is not an issue. Scott.
