Samsung SPH-D700 does not connect to Lenovo Ideapad P580

by Ritter197 / April 19, 2013 12:18 PM PDT

I have a fairly new Lenovo Laptop, Idea Pad P580 with Win7 Home Premium SW. I also have the Samsung Smartphone SPH-D700 Galaxy S.

Both have the latest drivers, yet a USB wire connection from smartphone to Lenovo does not detect the smartphone on the laptop, even though on the Samsung side all is ok and it says USB connected. I like to be able to transfer pictures taken with the smartphone to the laptop.
So far no one of my friends can help.Can someone here?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
