Icon is on screen. What is it?

I've got this icon constantly on my screen:

From Lenovo

 

What is it? And how do I make it go way?

 

 

And another thing: I'm using a brand new Lenovo E420s and the fan is quite loud (I may be a bit picky). Sometimes it's on even if I've just got a few tabs running (No heavy flash stuff). Does anyone else have this issue?

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

Welcome to the forum both of you!


Try the following tip:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74554&selectarea=SUPPORT&tempsel...


If you're running Windows 7 then you would find the option by right clicking on desktop -> Screen resolution -> Advanced settings -> On-Screen display.


To turn it off permanently you can uncheck "Enable On-Screen display" -> OK in the above menu, but it will also turn off on-screen display for volume and display, they'll keep on functioning silently though.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

Thank you! It was set to "Show permanently" and I moved it to "Show for a few seconds" and it worked.

 

You don't happen to know anything about the cooling fan issues that I'm having? I'm kinda hoping for a BIOS update with improved fan control or something.

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

 

Hi,
I also have a new Lenovo 420s. The fan is very quiet even if it runs heavy tasks.

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

I have a friend with a 15" Lenovo Edge (sorry, I don't have any other details). She has the vexing issue of a microphone icon popping up in the bottom middle of the screen all the time. Is there a solution for this? I read this post, but there was no solution given... Thanks for any help,

Paul
