canada compatible?

Question: canada compatible?

Can anyone give me some compatibility info for uk computors shipped to canada.I understand a new PSU is required for the main components but I'm wondering if the monitor is power compatible with canada if fitted with the appropriate power lead, and would the same go for the printer? The monitors I have are a gateway and acer input power for both reads ac 100-240v 50/60htz.Thanksjezguy

Preferred Solution: canada compatible?

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.)

I've found some posts on this, and I've deleted similar files that were recommended in those posts. However, Canada.exe manages to get back every time on startup, along with a bombardmant of pop-ups. Maybe I'm missing a few? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello KainOcelot and welcome to TSF,

You have more than one infection here and we will need to do this in stages.

Download Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and install it. Update to the newest definitions. Do NOT run it yet.

Please download nailfix at http://users.pandora.be/bluepatchy/nailfix.zip (for Windows XP). Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.bat. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Next run a full scan in Ewido. Post the log from the Ewido scan here.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each the following entry and hit 'Fix checked' if it still exists:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Restart your computer in normal mode.

Download FindIt's.zip to your desktop: http://forums.net-integration.net/in...post&id=142443

1. Unzip/extract the files inside to a folder on your desktop.
2. Open the folder and run FindIt's.bat and wait for notepad to open a text file. It will take awhile so please be patient ...
3. Then post the results here please, along with the new HijackThis log and th... Read more

Question: Canada

I have read a lot of reviews and announcements, and from all the countries that are being offered the ideapad systems, Canada is not mentioned.Is the ideapad going to be released in Canada at all? Looking throuhg the Lenovo Canada website I could not find any information, and a posting on the Tigerdirect store had an ideapad for a lot more than the MSRP in USA.Can anyone verify the availability of this notebook in Canada. I've owned 3 Thinkpads, and I love them. They are very reliable machines. My wifes has a tablet from Lenovo and likes it a lot.Thanks for the help.Wojtek

Answer:Canada

Wojtekk,
 
Welcome to the fourm
 
This list of countries in which Lenovo will initially market the IdeaPads is covered in my post HERE
 
I don't see Canada among them, so the IdeaPad's may not be available in Canada.   I don't have any insight into the reasons for the selection of the particular countries the products will be made available in.   It is also possible that additional countries could be added latter - I don't know, but products do sometimes appear in some markets before others.
 
Thanks for your interest !

Question: only in canada eh

When you upgrade to Win10 from a Win7 Premium machine you only get a Win10 Home version
In that version you have no control of MS downloads ....they force and install as they have in the Insider program
To upgrade to Win10 Pro in the US costs $US99 .... if you follow the path they suggest...."Settings......to Activation - to Store" you are sent to the US store and can't order from there as they do not recognise any Canadian provinces. So you are obliged to do a telephone order.....to the US store again (where they don't even recognise the name of a Canadian province) and the charge is
$C249

I ordered a Thinkpad T61 about 1 1/2 weeks ago.. When i first ordered it, i thought i had gotten all that i wanted as per addons only to find out a few days later that there were options showing up on the T61 build page that were not available to me when i first made the order After clearing up some things with Lenovo support, i was told that on the T61 that Bluetooth/Wireless USB is only available on US models and not in Canada.. While doing some searching online.. i am seeing people who bought their T61's in canada who claim to have bluetooth.. Does anyone know anything about this? I just dont see the logic behind offering something so simple as (atleast) bluetooth to canadian customers..

Question: Canada.exe

Been floating around trying to find a strait forward answer on how to get rid of this thing.

canada.exe is from what I know a dialer and when deleted it returns...

None of the Spyware removers used, (Microsoft Adware Remover, Spybot, some others) manage to get rid of it. Used (Hijack This) and removed it from the registry and it keeps on returning.

Some one Help Please. *Begging*

Answer:Canada.exe

You should post a HJT log to be examined by the HJT Team.There's more to "fixing" some problems, than HJT can do.Depends on how bad the infection is.Some fixes can be rather involved.Read the pinned post in the HijackThis forum, here Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.It may take a couple of days to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.NOTE:Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Question: Linux in Canada

Anyone know when linux on T61s will be available in Canada. The website said it was going up on Feb 19th but no update occured. The US website already has them available in CTO models.

Answer:Linux in Canada

Couldn't help you with that, but there is another option.Order a thinkpad with either XP or Vista, then once you get it make the recovery disks using the utility in Windows and then 1) either wipe the drive and install linux (whichever distro you're comfortable with), or 2) resize the drive and install linux on top of the current windows installation - both will work on the same machine, thus you'll have the option of dual booting into either Windows or Linux. Remember that Linux is free for download and use (unless you purchase a boxed version which will cost you a nominal amount for the box and booklet). Also keep in mind that the linux community is very large and very well represented on the internet, so should you encounter any problems, all you need to do is ask.  If you need info on which linux distro to choose, you could visit http://www.distrowatch.com, visit forum.thinkpads.com or forum.notebookreviews.com (linux section) and there's plenty of help in choosing a distro for your needs. Users in the latter two sites will also be very helpful in helping you prepare your system for dual booting Linux/Windows as well.Also, perhaps you could get more information on the subject by calling Lenovo Canada sales.Hope this helps!SteveMessage Edited by icantux on 02-20-2008 04:56 PM

Hello everyone! I've been digging/reading and have seen that the 5th gen X1C seems to be upgradeable to an m.2 nvme drive if I purchase it with the 128GB SATA3 option, however the answers I've seen are generally located in the US/EU. As I'm located in Canada and wanted to really make sure before ordering (off the EPP friends and family site no less), can someone please confirm?  The part number being given is 20HRCTO1WW (i7, 16gb RAM, wqhd screen with the WWAN card). I've spoken with 3 support chat people who have given varied answers, but their general consensus is that if I order the laptop with the SATA3 drive, it won't even come with the m.2 slot. I'm also on the fence between the i5-7300U and the i7-7600U, and have been reading about the poor-ish thermal performance of the thinner body...  Just don't have a definitive answer so if you guys can sway me one way or the other (about $200 difference), that'd be great  Thanks!

Is it likely that the SP2 firewall is blocking emails from my family . Or could it be Avast4 or even AVG 7? Any help will be most appreciated.

Answer:Emails from Canada and USA

no, not at all... Virus killers will check your email and alert you when you have a virus but will not delete your emails.The firewall stops certain things being accessible over t'internet.Could it be that there have been internet problems with the email provider or that these emails have been sent to the junk/trash can?try emailing your family and ask them to respond to a number of email addresses if you have them to see if it will help in identifying where the problem is.cheers

Hello, I see the s10 is now being ordered in the US. I am wondering if somebody here can tell me when it will be available in Canada or where I might find out this info? 

Answer:ideapad s10 Canada?

I talked with a sales representative today. They stated that they have no plan to market it in Canada. And, you can only charge to a US credit card on their US site and they only ship to US. It would appear we are forced into gray market shopping .... or buy Asus, MSI, Acer, Dell ....

Hello i moved to Canada around a month ago and im wanting to use my P.C over here but im not sure if i have to go buy a new PSU or can i just get a new power cable for it so it has the right plug end for over here? I have a 550w PSU with input voltage: 115v AC or 230v AC.. Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks...Ryan
 

Answer:will my psu work in Canada?

It should work fine as long as you set the input voltage switch to 115V AC.

Depending on where you moved from it may already be set to 115V and the only thing you'll need is a different power cable to fit our electrical sockets. Those can be picked up at any computer store.

Hi, I've been trying to find the answer to this question, but cannot get a live person on the phone without a serial number. I'm looking at purchasing the new Acer 15.6" Aspire V Nitro and it is currently available in the US, but not Canada. I live in Canada - if I do purchase it from the US, will the warranty be valid here in Canada? Would repairs take place in Mississauga, or would it need to be sent to the US?

Answer:Canada/USA Warranty Question

Your question is more of a Sales topic, rather than Service.  I suggest contacting the Acer Store with your question.  They should be able to help.

Hi,

I am the lucky one moving to Vancouver. I brought my German desktop with me.

It has a MoBo Asus m3n78 pro gf8300

It worked perfecty fine back in Germany, however now it does not even give me a single beep anymore although the CPU fan works. I removed the graphic card ati amd radeon 4870, HD, DVD... everything. Changed the DDR RAM-2 slots as well.

However fan continues working, but not furhter booting signs like monitor remains off or as said not even a beep from MoBo. I cannot even switch it off anymore, hence I need to unplug.

Any clue how to mitigate?

Help is very much appreciated!

Answer:PC will not start after move to Canada

I Think You Meant to Say........

"PC will not start after move to Canada........EY...:rolleyes:

You should probably try substituting the PSU with a known good one if possible, and reseat all the RAM modules, plugs, video card, and anything else you can think of that could have shaken loose, or become corroded.

Sometimes PSUs can fail if they're inoperative for a while, mostly the capicitors not being cycled, I think.

Be sure to take anti-static precautions, such as and anti-static wrist band, and ground yourself before you put your hands in the case.

If I purchase an x200 in the US will the warranty be accepted in Canada?On the Lenovo Canada site, the "Help Me Decide" option on the warranties says "Service is only available for non-refurbished machines released and purchased in the United States." so it seems even machines purchased in Canada do not have warranties in Canada? That can't be rigiht.Can someone please clarify?And what does this mean (from the Canadian site): ThinkPlus 3 Year EasyServ Total for 1 Year EasyServ ThinkPad [add $209.00 $177.65]Is that a 3 year warranty? What is the 1 Year EasyServe?

Answer:warranty options / canada

Some US machines do not have International Warranty Services, therefore it is not supported by warranty within Canada... whether your US purchased machine is covered by warranty within USA depends on the model number of the machine. Many machines purchased in say Asia, have the broadest international warranty coverage around the world.Message Edited by lead_org on 07-21-2009 08:28 AM

I've tried everything except tossing my computer over the balcony (I'd like to avoid that). I think I followed the steps correcty... ran spybot, adware, norton antivirus, hijack (and fixed entries) but as soon as I restart the "confirm" dialer popup appears, the "click me" shortcuts have returned and I'm getting browser ad popup about every 10 seconds (mostly for "Party poker" and Computer professor").

Read most of the threads and followed the steps, but no luck. Please, anyone who can help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
 

Answer:Another victim of canada.exe, elite

Most people who have Party Poker on their PCs installed it themselves. Are you saying you do not want it? Nor do you use it?

Please follow ALL the steps in the below. I' m not sure from what you stated that you have run all the steps.

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT: Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus RemovalMake sure you check version numbers and get all updates.

- Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps below:

- Download HijackThis 1.99.1

- Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

- Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file.

- Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

- Run HijackThis and save your log file.

- Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next message. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post).

SCAM ALERT!!! I received a phone call today from a so-called Hp representative (smartfriend hp). The person's phone number was (780) 365-2164, 780-365-2164 and called himself Michael Cole from San Jose, California. The fact that this person knew my hp serial number and that I had sent it for repair almost led me to believe he was for real. He said asked me to type msconfig in the run start menu and open System Configuration and said that the Application Gateway Layer Service from Microsoft needs to be removed and that hp would refund 240$ that they had charged for installing this service. I knew this was complete utter nonsense and it was also strange that the area code was 780 which is from Alberta in Canada. He then asked me to install teamviewer which is a remote access software, at that point, I was convinced this is a SCAM.  This information has been relayed to Hp customer service. Please note, if you receive a phone call from the following number, which asks you to install a remote access software, it is a SCAM: The phone numbers below have been written in different ways so people could google this number easily. (780) 365-2164780-365-21647803652164780 365 2164780 365 2164780-365 2164 SCAM ALERT!!!

Simply awesome!!! Got my Lumia 930 today. So far I can say this is a HUGE upgrade from my Lumia 920. Data access from Rogers has always been spotty at my home (cell reception overall is pretty bad) but there are a few locations that get LTE near me. During tests at these specific locations, phone displays 4G and sometimes H+, not LTE. Running Speedtest is not a true test as it is "clean". But was getting 50MBPS+ reports while the phone was displaying 4G. Amazing. Can honestly say the surfing was just as if not faster than on the 920.
Display is beautiful, bright, crisp and clean.
Have not had a full battery cycle and have been hammering the device a great deal getting it setup, but looks like performance is good.
Wife has the 830, that is an excellent device, 930 is just that much better. Weight I think is the biggest in terms of physical use, 930 is heavier feels high quality it that is eh. The weight feels more comfortable to use. 830 is actually much longer than 930. Display is superior on 930.
Feels likes the device is faster and smoother but have not done side-by-side testing with either 830 or 920.
No Denim yet so need to research that a bit.
Received a few updates and the typical Dev Prev updates but nothing else. Have not researched any OS version numbering though.
Build quality is outstanding.
Was very concerned about data and I have 0 issue.

Hey,

I'm going to be switching from Telus High Speed internet to Shaw High Speed internet only because of cost. Now my question is that will there be a difference? Because, before I've been hearing the Shaw is no good because it has a shared IP that gets used with your neighbourhood, but now it says we get 2 IP's. Does that mean it will be seperate like Telus? Are the speeds between Shaw and Telus about the same? Will the 2 IP's be used for 2 seperate computers?

I have a switch, and right now I'm using Telus. Since Telus gives me 2 IP's, the switch just gives internet to both computers. I also have to type in my physical address of both computers into some sort of Telus info in my account. This will allow Telus to know which computer to provide internet for when you plug it in. Will Shaw be the same or completely different?

Thanks

Or has it already and I have something wrong with my phone seeing the upgrade is available. I have an unlocked Samsung ATIV-S which was purchased under Telus and since then has been unlocked and now on the Bell network. Thanks.
Alan

Hi, the 910 is available in Canada since a month or so in its UHD version (3 models). Anyone have an idea about the availability of the FHD models in this country? I would also like to make sure that all the new units are properly configure to avoid the fan noise issues. Thanks, Max

I know Chromecast is not yet available in Canadian stores, but I love the idea of it. If I bought it in the states (I only live 20 minutes from the border) would it work in Canada?

Anyone have any ideas?

Check out this great new Wallpaper Manager from MSN Canada.
There is a small download (477KB) installer file, which then goes on to install the program and also download the wallpapers.
The installer will ask you if you want to make live search as default, make MSN your homepage. Take your decision and un-check/check options if you have to. For your information the Wallpaper changer also adds itself to the start-ups list.
You can edit, flip, add graphic elements or text, change settings, insert foreground images, create a slideshow of images and do a lot of things with it. Quite a nice app, actually ! Thanks James.

I have a w500 4058-CTO. When I ordered it there was never any mention of this feature on the website. THe machine does have a place for a SIM card, and there is a little white fake SIM card  in the slot. How can I tell if the laptop is prepared for WiMAX? I read about Verison in the US...... I read about software, hardware etc.. but there is no consistancy.  Iread about having a tech help guy talk you through taking the laptop apart to see if the Sony Ericsson card is infact in place. I have an 4G plan from Rogers here. It sure would be nice to be able to use my bandwidth on the laptop as well as on my phone. Thanks for any info.

I am new to this sort of thing so bare with me. I understand that there is a 3g slot in my x230.I understand that you can put a sim card in there.I understand that only certain band frequencies can work, and so the sim card has to be from certain companies. I want to know if 4g is possble using the 3g slot.I want to know what carriers in Canada can I get a sim card from, and get 3g or 4g internet from by using my x230. I don't want to buy an adapter.I'm using Ubuntu if that matters. Thanks.

Answer:x230 3g or 4g, and what carriers in Canada can I use with it?

Hi, Akiva
 
The answer isn't easy.1. You say about sim card only and mean carrier selection. But the real choice depends of your requirements in high speed mobility, the curriers in your areas, your mobility. Do you need LTE (4g) or 3g is enough presently and for the nearest future?
 
2. Then, the choice depends of the wwan cards nomenclature which x230 supports officially. The list is short:- Ericsson h5321 - 3g UMTS- Sierra Wireless mc8355 - 3g UMTS+CDMA- Sierra Wireless mc7700/7710/7750 - 3g, LTE
 
3. For 3g networks only mc8355 is the most universal card as it supports almost every 3g network worldwide. Just buy sim card or simless contract. The next steps depend of the carrier, are there needs of the card activation or no.
 
4. LTE is another case. The choice of the card and carrier depends of the LTE frequency band they support.There are several LTE carriers in Canada. As far as I know they use 2 LTE bands only, 1700 mhz (B4) and 2600 mhz (B7). Not all carriers support both bands. As an example, the biggest (?) Canada carrier Bell uses B4 in the most coverage areas and B7 in a few areas.
5. Unfortunately no one mc77xx family card doesn't support both bands:- mc7700 supports B4- mc7710 supports B7
mc7710 seems more universal card as it supports more bands then mc7700 and mc7750, especially for European carriers.
 
6. The card and carrier selection also influence for the maximum speed you can get from the network. The more widely frequency band th... Read more

I had the worst experience ever with a pretentious and dense customer service rep, I asked for her name she said it was Desirae Mercier.  HP should hire more professional experienced people, what I experienced with "Desirae" was horrible and did not solve my problem.  I hung up and called again and finally got someone who could help me with my lap top.

I have been looking at the S10e for the past few months, but the shipping dates have always been fluctuating then followed by the S10e's web page being down, then back up again with new options for the S10e but not improved ones.  The shipping is now a 4 weeks wait, and I'm not sure wheather to purchase it now or wait and see what is going to be released. 

Answer:Lenovo S10e - Canada

There is now the S10-2 an upgraded version of the S10 and S10e and also a completely new model S12 that is accepting orders. It may be good if you can look at all these alternatives to see if they meet your requirements and budget before ordering the S10e which is now an "old" model. But then, there is always something newer tomorrow.

I have been trying to find out if the warranty of a surface purchased in the US will work in Canada. The site says that the warranty is only good in the country the surface was purchased in. However, all the information for each warranty is identical and states that the warranty is only valid in the US and Canada. Has anyone dealt with this before?

Har har.

I'm trying to watch some alexisonfire videos on muchmusic.com and it won't let me because I'm not inside of Canada.

Is there some way I can log on to some site or server or something so it says my isp address is from Canada? It's either this or ****ing Canada is fixing to be subject to all out warfare.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Read this if you don't want Canada to get bombed!

You could use an annonymous proxy that happens to be located in canada:

If you do not know how to configure this, post back, and I (or someone else) will help you.

Note: I have NO idea what canada's laws are regarding this sort of thing. My instinct is that it's fine, but if that's a concern for you, you would do well to look into it a little.

Anyone have experience with repairs at the the Mississauga, Canada repair centre?If you have dropped off your unit in person, how long was the repair time? The foreign call centre says it's 7-10 business days. My in-box warranty says it's 5 business days. I have a TINY fix - new laptop with non-functioning DEL key. Could this possibly take 2 weeks?! Would appreciate your feedback in dealing with this centre. Thanks!

with enter state and zip only. Selecting paypal does not work either and if I attempt to edit my account
payment options, nothing happens. Am I missing something?

When can I expect to be able to get Cortana for windows 10 in Canada?

Answer:When will Cortana for windows 10 be available in Canada?

When Cortana or other features of Windows 10 will be available for specific countries or regions would be impossible to say. When Microsoft feels it is ready or when they have it scheduled is the best we can answer. Microsoft hasn't made that information available, as far as I know, and we'll know when they tell us.
Sorry I can't provide a more direct answer.

Sometime ago I was told by a Lenovo rep that SUSE would be available on R and T series laptops in Canada, as they are in the United States.  To date, only MS is available.  Would you please tell if and when ThinkPads with SUSE preloaded will be sold to Canadians?  I am not interested in buying a laptop with MS on it.  Thinkpads are my brand of choice.  Thank you in advance for responding to my question.Regards,Bill D-GToronto ON

Answer:SUSE On ThinkPads In Canada

I have heard that it is available, but I do believe you have to call in to order it, as it does not appear to be an option on the website.
