I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: ISP Availability

So we're moving our business here into a larger facility in a more densely populated area in an upscale tech-savvy city. I didn't really think internet access would be an issue as this commercial area has been established for 30 years and supports a lot of tech oriented businesses (there is an ISP 1 block away - http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&aq=&sll=42.762634,-95.383994&sspn=19.40771,19.313965&ie=UTF8&hq=&t=h&ll=44.872994,-93.402886&spn=0.018309,0.027037&z=16).

I've called up ~7 ISP's and the BEST service i can get in the area is a 3mbps DSL line? Apparently Qwest owns the copper in the area and the nearest station is ~11,000 ft away. Comcast owns the cable in the area but they are 1/2 mile away with no intent of moving closer. According to the ISP that is 1 block away Qwest pulled out a lot of the copper and replaced it with fiber, although the fiber doesn't go to our building either. So now i'm stuck with a 3 down / 1 up DSL line or buying multiple T1's which doesn't seem cost effective at all.

Anyone have any ideas of strategies i'm missing? It seems pretty backwards that in this type of area I can't get decent service.
 

Answer:ISP Availability

As bad as it may be, T1's are still the basic standard for telco connections. Hopefully this changes soon, have you seen if you can get fast ethernet from anyone like Cogent (They may be only in my area). Normally is a T1 services the building you can get some decent connections but they cost a lot.

When you say comcast is 1/2 mile away do you mean their closest cable is 1/2 mile away and they want to charge you to run it to the building?

Anyone know where I can get a copy of Zone Alarm Firewall (Free) Vers. 6.1.744? I've used ZA for a couple years and had no problems. Decided to update to the latest version (6.5.731 from Maj Geeks). Would never completely load and was using 100% of my CPU, so I couldn't do anything else with the machine. Finally got rid of it (clean uninstall) and went to the Zone Alarm forum where I learned that too many people are having problems with all the 6.5. versions. Current wisdom seems to be that the last trouble-free version was 6.1.744. Can't find it on ZA's site, however, only the Anti-Virus for that version.
(am I making sense?) Thanks for any leads.

Question: SP3 availability

Im finding it difficult to locate XP SP3 as a seperate individual downloadable file (so i could keep on disc - for installs). Microsoft give a link for this - but only if you are deploying it via a network. Is SP3 only available via torrents? I take it, that it would be compatible with both Home on Pro versions?

Cheers

Answer:SP3 availability

The one available for deployment via Networks is just fine to use on a home machine. It is the same thing. SP3 no matter what will always be the same thing. Be it for Home or Pro, via Network or via Windows Update. It will ALWAYS be the same thing. Would be pointless to make different versions cause then you would have to know which version you are getting to make sure that your software was compatible.

The S10 has been out for a while, yet it is hard to find any retailer that carries it. I like to use Amazon because I get free 2 day shipping from them. The S10 shows up as "Available for Pre-Order" in their website. A little frustrated, I actually called them the other day to find out why it wasn't available yet. They told me that they are waiting to get a shipment from Lenovo, and that the S10 should be in stock in a few weeks. I believe Lenovo have an amazing product with the S10, hopefully they can improve availability so that it is convenient to get one. I'm wondering where you guys have gotten your S10 netbooks (my guess is that most of you ordered directy from Lenovo.) Thanks for the great forum, by the way. I have followed it often, but I just registered so this is my first message.

Answer:Why the low availability for the S10?

Hi, welcome to the forum. My question: Have you been tried lookup product availability in Lenovo official website?

Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 build 6001
Upgraded ram from 1GB to 4GB. Vista reports 4GB installed in msinfo32 but only about 800mb are installed physical. same as watching perfmon, only uses about 800mb, just like it did before i upgraded the RAM, the ram was not purchased in addition to original, it was a full replacement, so the sticks are good, and also my second OS server 2k3(same HD) utilizes all the 3.5 i should have very well. Ran vista's memory diagnostic and no problems were found. Could someone clue me into what vista is up to with that? is there a setting or something i am missing. I was on phone with Micro for 2 hrs and he said it was going to the research team and they would contact me. Lame. any light that could be shed would be much appreciated.

if this topic was posted already, sry for the double
Thx

Answer:RAM Availability(not the 3.2gb thing)

Unless I am reading you wrong, all of your memory is installed physically but you are only using 800 MB of th total available memory. The rest of it is cached ready to be used if need be. Whatever you were using previous to the memory upgrade will not change as a result of the memory upgrade.
The amount of phsical memory used is equal to what is running in the system at the present time. So if you open an application that is not currently running you will see an increase in the amount of physical memory being used. Vista remembers what applications you use most frequently ard caches those applications into memory at startup to reduce the time necessary to load the application when you need it. This is why Vista usually takes so long to boot up.

If you want to know your total phsical memory installed and what has been cached, and therefore by deduction what is being used look in task manager:

Do you know where I can find open source, free, or cheap DLA software for use with Vista?

DLA = direct letter access. It is software that allows a user to employ the “save” or “save as” command in most applications to write a file directly to an RW disk like one writes a file to a hard drive. With DLA software, the file saved on the RW disk can be re-opened, edited, and saved anew.

A personal note:

I've used Roxio Media Creator (and its predecessor) over the years, but I am getting tired of having to buy new software every time Microsoft upgrades its operating system. Over the years, I have had to purchase three upgrades. Frankly, I'm feeling exploited.

I have been unable to find acurate broadband availability maps for my specific area of Northwest Washington state.
Specificly I need to know aproximatly when DSL or tower (clearwire) services will become available in rural areas of Skagit county. I now use an almost worthless G3 type connection-expensive and s-l-o-w !
Google searches and contractor sites seem worthless.
Any help is apreciated.
 

Answer:Broadband availability map

Determining coverage for an existing service should be as simple as going to the provider's website and looking at a coverage map or inputting address information.

Determining future coverage also requires going to the provider's website since they're the only ones who know when and where they're planning to expand. They may or may not provide that information.

Clearwire is 4G WiMax with availability in large cities. I doubt they have any rural area coverage.

Good afternoon,
I have just come across what I consider to be an annoying problem. I have been using a couple of programme that gave various bits of data ? so it?s my own fault for not having properly looked and understood before!! ? and one of these is the amount of ram available. I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit, and have installed 4 GB of ram. I realise that a fair chunk of it will be used by windows but assumed that something between 2 and 3 GB would have been available to the programmes I run. BUT both of the programmes are saying there is just over 1 GB of ram available. Now I do not have the expertise to be able to work out whether this refers to the amount still available OR is the amount that windows makes available. Can some one tell me how to check out what is available immediately after booting up, when it is only the desktop that is running? I am presuming that as virtually nothing else will be being used this will show the maximum amount of available ram. If there is a way of increasing the amount of available ram, at this point, that would be even better.
Many thanks in advance to all who reply.

I would first make sure that they were all part of the Same workgroup. I would then install TCP/IP on all of them since NetBUEI is entirely to chatty. You should then configure the TCP/IP with a 192.168.x.x address. Then select the subnet mask usually somewhere in the 255.255.x.x range. THough I can't remember if you are required to add a gateway, you can use the address of 192.168.x.1 I believe, someone correct me if I am wrong.

After you set it up this way, you should be able to see everything.

Hi all......

i reinstalled windows the other day on my secondary HDD (dual boot), but ive just now noticed this ..

''memory remap'' is enabled & ive got the full 8gb accessible on the primary drive..??

any idea where this RAM is hiding.

Answer:Weired RAM availability..???

Perhaps this will explain:






Quote:
Note When the physical RAM that is installed on a computer equals the address space that is supported by the chipset, the total system memory that is available to the operating system is always less than the physical RAM that is installed. For example, consider a computer that has an Intel 975X chipset that supports 8 GB of address space. If you install 8 GB of RAM, the system memory that is available to the operating system will be reduced by the PCI configuration requirements. In this scenario, PCI configuration requirements reduce the memory that is available to the operating system by an amount that is between approximately 200 MB and approximately 1 GB. The reduction depends on the configuration.


The system memory that is reported in the System Information dialog box in Windows Vista is less than you expect if 4 GB of RAM is installed

Although the article is for Vista, the same would apply for W7.

Does anyone know whether Windows 7 will still be available in the stores for purchase once Windows 8 is officially launched on Oct 25th?

Perhaps someone can recall what happened to Vista when Win 7 launched.

If Win 7 is going to be pulled from the shelves, then maybe it's time to stock up before it's gone.

Answer:Win 7 availability once Win 8 launches?

Of course it will. Windows 8 sucks.

A few months ago the 2.13 GHz SL9600 option became available on the X200 Tablet. Since then it's disappeared, and a few have sprung up on ebay or the like. I was just wondering if anyone knew when this would become widely available again, or at least if there was a more reputable reseller that I could purchase one from. I really want to buy this tablet, but I can't consider it unless it has at least a 2 GHz processor.  Thanks.   EDIT: Whoops, I posted this in the wrong forum; could it be moved to the X200 Tablet section?

I have seen the specification of the Qosmio G35 AV660 and what is built in as standard suits my purposes totally.
Having checked all of the dealers and distributors in the UK, nobody seems to be aware of the existence of this version and consequently cannot give me a purchase price.

This version of Qosmio is available from distributors in the States and the Far East - can it be obtained here(UK) and at what price?

If not - are there any particular problems with buying from other countries?
Thanks for any info you may pass on!

Answer:Is Qosmio G35 Availability in the UK?

Hi Frank

The Qosmio G35 AV660 was designed especially for the US market and in my knowledge it is not available in the Europe.

I think if you want to buy it you have to contact an US notebook dealer or an notebook importer in the UK.

I've I can wait and it isn't too long I just don't want to... Like you said, I think the Samsung Series 5 Slate is available at Staples, but you have to look in-store. Is it OOS at your local stores?
And unfortunately, it seems that most of the pro tablets won't be available until November or later for some reason. One that I do see available though is the Sony VAIO Duo 11, but it's quite pricey because it's Sony and it runs a Core i7 low voltage processor, and it uses a N-Trig digitizer instead of Wacom if that matters to you.
I'm not quite sure what the delay is, especially since a month or two back some of the news outlets were saying certain devices would be released when Windows 8 is launched on the 26th, but now released dates have been moved back to just "sometime in November."

Several people here in Dubai been looking for X61 all around contacted lenovo local dealer (Jumbo) were they stated that its only available for  companies  use only not retail. this take me into suprize since all people around the world been ordering them and buying them in world wide market without any problem why it's only here ??I talked to sales representative yesterday he told me he been getting lot of phone calls from ppl requesting him to try and spare some for them .. the only thing he was able to say is to contact lenovo site and ask them to do so??strange policy .. I've been user of IBM computers since long time and i didn't had any such problem of not putting announced product in the market ??anyone can help??

Answer:X61 availability in Dubai

this venue is the wrong place to ask that particular question..
 
all here must kind of only say what would be approved be the company..
 
i happen to know a fellow who lives in dubai and gets a new thinkpad every few years..
he is iranian and his mother lives in (or near) nice, france..
 
so its not an impossible dream, just a little tricky..
 
what I would do in your place would be to find an online dealer and buy from them and if need be just take delivery to a friend in the USA and have him ship it to you in dubai..
 
this will raise the cost since fedex or DHL is costly to dubai..
but you will get a new thinkpad and if you get together with your friends you can save on the shipping by shipping two or three..
 
you MIGHT have warranty issues but thats another story and this MIGHT be the reason that particular model is sold only to large enterprises..

Been looking at laptops for a while with the aim to get one in December. When I looked before the Y500 looked perfect for what I was after however after realizing they were releasing a new model (y510p,) I decided to hold off in wait. I remember calling Lenono support some time in July and was told the model would be available sometime in August however now in October, it still doesn't seem to be available from UK retailers. I can buy it from the lenovo website however with the estimated shipping time, it's clearly imported so might as well just import it from a US based seller. Anyway, before I go the import route, I was wondering if anyone knew any info on if the Y510p will be available from UK based retailers in the next few months?

I am looking for a replacement for my X60s. First thing, that came up into my mind was X201s. I looked at the U.S. Lenovo website and found out that I am not able to order it from there; however, on the U.K. website it is available for order. Then I searched this forum for information, have not found any reasonable explanation. The only thing I found was the assumption that this is because of lack of the i7 processor, but i7 is back in stock, while X201s is not. I continued further my investigation and found post on the Thinkpads.com forum: ?The entire x201s line is discontinued? They are still available among resellers because there are remaining inventories in the resellers channel. I guess I should have made my line more refined. The x201s has been discontinued in the US, at least. Not sure about other countries?.? Do you have any thoughts on that? Was there any confirmation or press release from Lenovo? They have discontinued X300 series, maybe the author of the post got confused, or we will be left without also without X201s, which I consider as THE masterpiece?

They added a max'd out model to their site yesterday (256GB SSD, 8 GB RAM and i7).
