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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,I've an approved RMA for full refund for an X230 that I'd purchased from Depot. The restocking fee was waived as I'd ordered another X230 (better EPP deal).I shipped back the unopened X230 and Lenovo acknowledged the receipt of the laptop on Feb 5. And since then there has been no update on my refund. I was told it would take 6 business days for the refund to be posted back to my account.Now it's over 2 weeks and when I contacted post sales support - this is the reply I got from them: *************Hi,We regret to inform you that i am unable to get any information on this order, I am still working on your order. Once we get the information on the refund i will keep you updated on the same For further assistance please feel free to email me back and i will be glad to assist you Regards *************So what are my options now. An answer like "i am unable to get any information on this order" from customer care themselves doesn't really inspire confidence with Lenovo. The second X230 that I'd ordered, has issues with the IPS display having a yellow tint and the touchpad being super jumpy. Had sent it to their repair center who unfortunately were not able to see the problems at first but later accepted the problem with the touchpad alone and they're getting the laptop re-imaged. Display is as designed according to them. They're sending it back now. Will wait and see. If I still see the display problem, will get it returned. Thank you Lenovo, for that amazing buyi...

Why does it say that I will receive the laptop 2 weeks from now when it says that I should expect it within 1-3 days?

Answer:Dell site says XPS 15 gets delivered in 1-3 days, the order date for my order is 2 weeks from now...

Generally when that happens there has been a burst of orders, or there is a part on back order and the sales site hasn't been updated yet.  The delivery times are just estimates and could be sooner or later depending on various conditions.

 This is my Order Number: 2FFVLJI've always owned a Thinkpad for the past 10 years and am a staunch Thinkpad fan.  The R60 and Z60m have been reliable and faithful companions.  I have been recommending Thinkpad to my colleagues and friends.  Hence when I needed a new laptop, I went directly to lenovo's site and ordered a T510 (Web Special) on 4th August 2010 using a valid credit card.  For two days the status was "in process".  On Aug 6th, I was unable to login in usng the cust no and order no to see the status.  When I called the sales customer service, I was informed that the order was cancelled from lenovo's side.  They pointed me to the credit card department for further information.  When I called the credit card department, they claimed information mismatch as the reason for the cancellation but they could not point out what exactly was the mismatch.  I can assure you that the card is valid.  Currently I'm not able to place another order for the same model from lenovo's site as it is no longer available.  This is very regretful as I was really looking forward to getting my laptop of choice.  I tried calling the sales dept but they are not available as it is weekend now (everyone needs a break )  So I have emailed them for help.  I'm yet to get a response.  This has been a nail biting experience.  I'm anxiously waiting for the response from the sales dept.   Will it be possibl...

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order


I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


After you added that to the registry, rightclick a jpg file, select "Open with", choose Windows Photo Viewer and click "Always open with this ... Read more

I just configured another W700, and now, several components are not in stock. The usual suspects being the SSD drives, but now also the Intel WiFi Link 5350 card. I hope I can still change my order, and go with the Intel WiFi Link 5300, as WiMAX is likely going to be dropped by Sprint, the third largest cellular carrier (out of four), although Sprint says it will keep on fighting what many are looking at as a dead technology, although it still has other big companies backing WiMAX.

I have recently upgraded to IE9. Previously in IE8, when I added a link to the favourites bar it would add very conveniently locate itself to the front of the list (visible at the front of the bar). In IE9 it adds to the back of the list which means that I have to spend time scrolling to the bottom of my list to open recently added links. I cannot seem to find a way to reverse this order. I have opened the Favorites folder and I have rearranged to date modified to bring most recent to the top, but this has no effect in the IE9 browser? Is there a simple answer?

I've just moved a directory from C:\Users\Steve\Documents\Probate to \\PROLIANT\Probate (a share on my WHS2011 server).

I created a Symbolic Directory link from \\PROLIANT\Probate in C:\Users\Steve\Documents, but when I view the "Documents" folder, the symbolic link sorts amongst the files rather than the directories.

Is there any way that I can get the C:\Users\Steve\Documents\Proliant link to appear amongst the directories?

Answer:Sort order of Directory Symbolic Link

How did you create the symlink?
By default, Links are created as file links. Make sure you use the /d parameter.

mklink /d <linkname> <source>

eg. mklink /d 3D \\Server\movies2\3D
(Make sure you are at the location you want the symlink created before typing the above, or provide a fully qualified path if not).

So this is "kind of" the message i get up when trying to install champions online, i also get it when starting up diablo 3, now it doesnt affect diablo 3 as i am aware of. The problem is that i cant install this game, the game itself is not a install file but a downloader for the game, the error seems to be part of iertutil.dll, this problem occured after reinstalling and reformating the hard drive because of an error that suddenly occured to me, is there any easy fix for this ? Thank you in advance and i am sorry for my bad spelling


Edit1: So i found out that i currently have the Iertutill.dll file, so the problem must have something to do with this ordinal 379, i have no idea of what it is, and i have no idea how to insert it into the dynamic link library, i am aware of that it has something to do with explorer.exe

Answer:Order number 379 was not found in the dynamic link library

Here are the results of a Google search: ordinal 379 could not be located - Google Search. I found lots of hits for similar problems, but no solution. If you find one, do let us know.

And I am fairly certain it is ordinal 379, not order number 379.

Question: Before I order...

Thanks ahead of time! I've got the w520 (4270CTO). I believe it was the cheapest configuration. My memory is coming Wednesday. I've ordered the "G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)". I've already got 4GB in the w520 and will be adding these 8, should I expect anything after installing? Compatibility? I think I ordered the right stuff... I'm also ordering the intel series 310 80gb msata SSD. Should I expect compatibility issues? There isn't something already in the msata slot of my notebook is there? Also: could anyone point me to a guide for msata installation or to a different guide on installing more ram into the alternative ram slots (which I believe are near the keyboard or something?). I've been out of the PC loop for quite a while, though I do have experience building several machines, so I dont think it'll be too difficult. Coming back from a mac, I really enjoy getting back into the nitty gritty!

It depends on your internet habits. I expect you run IE. I think you need to make that assesment on your own. Do you find stuff weekly, that needs to be removed.
I'm not gonna tell you what I do, because I think I'd be banned from the site.
Have you tried firefox instead of Internet explorer. It is very easy to setup and offers far better protection.
In a week get back to me and tell what kind of protection then.

Zonealarm is that an anti-virus version.
Your software firewall needs to run 24/7.

Hello, I have 2 problems that I can not fix.

1) I have a LG cd burner GCE 8527B firmware 1.03 that if I put a cd in it to read, my pc restarts automatically if I leave the cd in and restart. Otherwise, if it does not read the cd.

2) I had a LG dvd burner that seemed to stop working so I bought a Pioneer dvd-rw dvr 111D (updated the firmware to 1.29) which is never able to burn a full dvd, no matter the amount of stuff I want to burn. I always burn data. It always stops.

I have XP pro sp2 with all updates. I recently update the itapi 8211 to version with Microsoft updates.
I have no problem in my device manager and all is functionning.

I have a nice 4-year old laptop with a 7500 hybrid HDD running win7. 32GB RAM + Intel i7-4700 2.4GHz + NVIDIA graphics processor.

I'm currently using 250GB of a 1TB drive

I want to upgrade to Win10 in part, because I have an intractible error every time I create or rename a directory now:

--o-- Item Not Found
--o-- Could not find this item
--o-- This is no longer located in .....
--o-- Verify the item's location and try again.
--o-- [Try Again] [Cancel]

It's always been problematic when it comes to directory name, not refreshing with new names and now this no solution problem.

I want to upgrade the OS and the HDD to a SSD of 500GB.

Should I clone the disk and move the win7 to the SDD and then upgrade the OS to win10 or should I upgrade the OS and then clone the disk? If I clone the disk first, I always have the backup plan to just reinstall the "old" HDD and try again.

Another option would be a bare, clean install of win10 on the SSD, reinstall my programs, like MS Office, graphics, viewers, and other assorted stuff and then copy all my backed up data to the new SSD? ( I would have both a backup of everything and a clone. )

Cost is not an object. I just want smooth and reliable when I'm done.

The problem you are having may be a problem in the underlying file/folder structure in the file system on the hard drive and may cause problems with an upgrade. Might as well start over with a fresh, error free clean install!

You can make a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive from here:
Download Windows 10

Use the "download tool now" button and just let the Media Creation Tool create the USB flash drive for you. Use the option in the Media Creation Tool to create installation media for another PC.

I would not clone the drive for backup purposes. A lot of us here use Macrium Reflect Free to make backup image files:

Question: ram order

with 3 slots on motherboard and 512 mb capacity, does it make any difference what size sticks are put in and in what order? ie: 1 512mb, 2 128mb and 1 256 or 2 256. and also is there any difference in what order they go in slots.

Answer:ram order

rgray.....I would refer to your MOBO 's manual to be certain . Your board may not accept a 512 stick in one dimm socket . I also believe that if you are going to use say 2 of the 3 dimms ...then I would use dimm 1 and dimm 2 and have dimm 3 enmpty , but again check your MOBO 's manual .Hope this helps dl65

Question: ABC order?

What is a quick and easy way to put a list of about 500 items in alphabetical order without retyping them? Thx!

Answer:ABC order?

What is the list look like and how is it stored? If the items are in Word and are on separate lines and are just one word, all you have to do is block the text and select Table, Sort and follow the instructions. If the data is, say first names and last names and you want to sort by last name, then I would copy and paste the data in Excel, then Parse the last names (Use Data, Text to Columns) out into another field and then sort by that field.

Hello Denise,

It would the amount of physical Memory that you have left over that Vista is not using. To test this, open Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE) and click on the Performance tab. The Memory graph shows how much actual RAM is being used. Below that the Available RAM should be the same or close to the 2.12 GB (2170.88 MB).

Hope this helps,

hey, what is the best order, the first thing to do once i buy a new pc, 1.create a boot disc? 2. system restore 3. backup data (well i wouldn't have any data to backup when i first buy so count that one out), and last can i store backups and system restores on the same external hard drive? thanks

Answer:what's the best order?

If the computer comes with Windows pre-installed, then you should:

1. Create recovery disks
2. Enable virus/firewall protection (don't attempt to combine anti-virus products)
3. Create a system image and rescue (boot disk) for the image
4. Create data backups as you proceed

In that order.

System restore points? will probably be setup by default, so no need to tamper with that, although you should check it.

System restore points? are not stored externally - perhaps you are referring to system images? If so, then yes, images and backups can be stored to a single external device provided it is large enough.

I have an older Dell Optiplex 4600c i'm working on for my grandparents. Their CPU fan doesn't run at all (not even during POST/ startup), so obviously, it overheats and shuts down after 20 minutes or so.

Because Dell is awful, this model has a proprietary CPU fan, so I can't just get a new one off the rack. Before I order the replacement, then, is there anything else that could cause the fan to not spin except a bad fan or (less likely, but possible) a bad connection on the MoBo?

Answer:Before I order a new CPU fan...

It could be extremely dirty with dust, which is preventing the fan from running (getting started). Have you looked at the fan closely when energizing it to see if the fan's blades jump a little like it wants to start? If the blades jump like it wants to start you might be able to clean the fan and oil the bearing. Many people are successful in extending a fan's life by cleaning and oiling them. Might be worth a try...

Is this the fan?

Question: Is this in order?

I have a copy of XP bought last week with the bits for another machine (to replace my good lady's died old 98 stager). Let us call this B. I am minded to do a clean re-install on machine A. Can I use the disc which came with B but enter the code key from A? Both XPs are O.E.M. I want to do this because there are certain little wrinkles on the new one which are better than the old one.

Question: Order of RAM

I bought 1G of RAM (Kingston) and it is the correct pairing that will go with the 256Kb that shipped in a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Both Toshiba and Kingston state that with this non-parity RAM, "like size" is not critical.

[200-pin SODIMM DDR2 PC2-4200, Non-ECC]

I pulled the 256-stick out and put the 1G in that slot and put the 256 into what I assumed was the (2) slot. But when I back-check it on, it shows the smaller (256) stick in the 1 slot with the 1G in the 2 slot.

Does the order of the sticks matter? I have always heard that the larger stick should go in the (1) slot but I can not find that spoken to or confirmed on any website.

Strange - I took the 256 out of the original slot, thinking they would ship it with the stick in the (1) slot. Wrong.

I'll pick up the Optical drives and Floppy later -

Answer:One more thing before I order

With OEM XP, the licence stays with that PC for ever.

Micro$$oft has also tightened restrictions on OEM, so if you change the motherboard, you need to buy another copy of XP.

The only exception is if the motherboard is faulty.

It's up to you which way you go.

For hard drive, I would go for SATA. (probably a Maxtor DiamondMax 10 with 16MB cache)

It's (SATA) not faster, but it's easier to physically install, and the cables are much neater which improves access and airflow.

It will also help to future proof the system and the drive.

Currently have DVD-RW and 80GB HDD both set as master on separate IDE cables. I want to add a CD-ROM and 2nd HDD. Having read the other posts about best way to connect, many seem to advise putting all HDD on 1 cable, and optical on the other. However I tend to copy CD's a fair bit on the fly, so would it be better to have the opticals on separate cables?I also want to use the PC for video editing etc. I was planning to use the 2nd HDD to store all the raw video, transferring data to the 1st HDD when it comes to the final rendering, and then burning to DVD. Am I right in thinking that I would be better to have the HDD on separate cables also for faster data transfer between HDDs. ie you get better data transfer between drives that are on separate IDE cables.Some have commented that the CD/DVD will slow down the HDD data transfer speed, but others say this is no longer an issue.The final set up would be primary IDE: master 1st HDD, slave CDsecondary IDE: master 2nd HDD, slave DVD-RWAny thoughts as to my logic (or lack of..)

Hi guys,   I am new here.  I just recently(2/3/08) ordered a T61 from lenovo.  I received 1 initial message from them about getting the order and nothing more after that so far.  When I check on the status of the machine it says "In Process" and the est ship date is 2/21/08.  I was thinking about canceling this config/order and maybe doing a different T61 config.  How difficult would this be?  At what point do I have to worry about restocking fees?  Any help would really be appreciated.  Thanks.

Answer:When is it still ok to cancel an order?

if you ordered online, you should be able to cancel online..
if by telephone, then call the same sales person and cancel the order..
either way, be sure you have the order number..
and after you cancel and have confirmation, place the new order with the same person..
ask for email confirmation of both the cancellation AND the new order (new order should have email confirmation without you asking)..
be sure to get the sales persons name and telephone number/extension..
it could be that your order will ship even if you cancel it since it takes time to filter through the system..
and shipping is probably in china and they work saturdays in china..

I use audio and video files in training programmes, which I load on USB. However, when the playing device does not have a file name display (only a number), the order in which the files play appears unpredictable. I have taken blank USBs and loaded files one by one. But at the end, if I add one more, the whole order goes haywire.  Is there any way to place files on a specific place - say 7th or 8th? Though this is may not be directly related to Lenevo notebook, I think it might be food for thought for many.

I bought a Yoga 11S a few days ago on the Lenovo website with the FatWallet discount (10% off + 6% FatWallet cash back + free shipping).  They say it will ship any day now, despite the fact that the website didn't have the model I ordered available for shipping for another 9 days.  I bought the Yoga 13, but it is a bit too big for my needs.  I checked out the Asus Tai Chi at an Abt electronics store, but I didn't like it.  The touchscreen was kind of "sticky" (for lack of a better term) which made for a horrible touch/feel experience when dragging my finger across a screen to scroll, for example.  And for some reason, the oil on one's skin left very visible smudges on the screen.  The Yoga screen wasn't like that at all, plus the touchscreen works in laptop mode and tablet mode unlike the Tai Chi.  Anyway, hoping to get the 11S in a few days, sight unseen.  Hopefully it is just like the Yoga 13, but smaller and lighter.   

Answer:Anyone have the Yoga 11S on order?

I just ordered it this morning. It should really be the same except for size (obviously) and screen resolution, but I don't really see a big deal out of that.  The main issue I'm concerned with (as I have read about the Yoga 13) is if the fan noise problem is going to be carried onto the Yoga 11s.  I really don't want to have to deal with that. Also, I'm not sure if there is an extra SSD slot for upgrade, like the Yoga 13 apparently does.  Perhaps if anyone has already received theirs, they could share their inputs on how they like their 11s. My estimated shipping is around 6/21-6/22 so we will see.

Question: Cancel Y2P order?

May a Lenovo employee contact me via private message to assist me with the cancellation of my recent Y2P order. The mods have made it clear to me that I must take what I can get and be satisfied with a buggy $1,300 system. This has been evident by the deletion of my post and lack of communication in spite of my request. I no longer wish to buy this computer with fan issues (after the bios update) and potentially problematic wifi issue at a $1,300 price tag. I am ok if this post gets deleted, but please contact me with cancelation instructions. To be fair, I tried to contact Mark_Lenovo directly, but there is no contact link on his profile page. If Lenovo fails to assist me with the cancelation, I will contact the and I will stop payment on my CC. Regards,A Customer No More

Answer:Cancel Y2P order?

Seriously?  Have you tried calling the sales department?  Or just felt the uncontrolable urge to get on your soap box?

Will be putting it together in the next few days, but had a question on installation. Can someone outline the order I should be installing the software for this build? Do I need to update any firmware first, such as the motherboard or SSD? What order should I be installing drivers once Windows is installed? Any programs or drivers that need to be installed ahead of others? Thanks guys!

Answer:Order fo rinstallation

Greetings, ChefMan21, and welcome back to MajorGeeks...

Good looking list of equipment - should be a fun build...

Just common sense caveats:

1. Go with the usual Microsoft defaults when loading Windows.

2. Use the safe OEM driver installs. Any chipset and hard drive software should be loaded before the peripherals.

3. Make sure you have a good antivirus solution up and running before accessing the internet.

4. Let Windows d/l and install necessary operating system updates, but stick with the OEM driver software.

5. Once you've got a good, stable operating platform, create restore points and a hard drive image of some sort to fall back on before you start tweaking that beast...

Good luck! :major

Question: startup order

I asked this before but I've lost the answers.How can I get the programs to start in the order I want them or not start until I need them.For example, security first, mouse , e-mail, firefox and so on, I did use a program for this but new downloads kept pushing in and altering the order, so I ditched it.

Answer:startup order

Except for the mouse and A/V,nothing starts without action from you.

At the bottom of this mesage is my current Boot Order. I want to know the optimal order to use with the type of tasks I am using. I have a T60 8744-5BU with Win7 32bit95% booting from 2.5" SSD with Win7 (love the speed of the SSD)02% booting from 2.5" HDD to try out different OS or software.

Answer:Best Boot Order

I would suggest setting C300-CTFDDAC256MAG-(S1) as the primary boot device as the computer starts 95% of the time from it.  The order of the other items is unimportant because you will always be selecting one of the manually via the F12 boot order option.
