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.

Bluetooth Blue Piston, Windows 10 and/or a Lenovo problemI have a Lenovo notebook with Windows 10 (updated to this week), and and Blue Piston Bluetooth speaker.I have no problem pairing my Blue Piston Bluetooth speaker to my old Ipod Touch or my IPad 2.But, I do have problems using it with my Lenovo Notebook. They seem to Pair but quite often the radio program I am listening on the Bluetooth speaker too goes intermittently dead and then reconnects.In the Manage Bluetooth devices settings screen of Windows 10, a message sometimes appears and says "Setup incomplete. Restart your PC".I have restarted my PC, and it seems to make no difference.The only step that I have taken is to remove and reinstall the Atheros/Broadcom driver set.I have one suspicion that my Blueooth on my computer is conflicting with my Wifi on my computer.Advice is appreciated.

Does anyone know if MSFT is working on installers that someone can buy/get and install it on some of the popular android devices???

Answer:Is there a way to install Windows 10 on Android devices like One Plus Two or Xiaomi Mi4?

Not even close! It's a whole world in terms of OS's! What MSFT did is create a somewhat called launcher (ROM) for the Mi4 (Xiaomi) but it's only tested from the inside (Privately)
So you better grab a Windows launcher in the Play store! Or you could search (If you are lucky) a torrent of the ROM and download it (If available) flash your Android phone and we'll... You got it!

Hi guys!
I'm currently a Lumia 640 LTE user. I'm very satisfied with this unit's performance and very impressed with windows 10 mobile despite it's occasional hiccups and persisting bugs, especially after coming from windows phone 8.1 with the Cherry Mobile Alpha Luxe. An acquaintance of mine is selling his Xiaomi Mi4 at an affordable price and although I despise the brand because of it's poor customer support (based on my personal experience with the Mipad), I'm thinking of buying it just to try out W10M on a premium hardware. My concern, however is that I am not so sure if the version of the W10M ROM available for the Mi4 is the old one or is it constantly updated and still updatable to current builds. Can anybody please shed some light on this? Thanks!

Answer:What is the latest build available for the Xiaomi mi4 on windows 10 mobile rom?

I have recently replace my 640 LTE with a Mi4 (the cheapest LTE versin, with 2Gb RAM) and goes much better, I Updated it to the last insider version in the fast ring and I'm happy with it.
Just one thing, only LTE versions of Mi4 had windows 10 ROM

Answer:Microsoft is providing select Xiaomi users with a ROM to put Windows 10 on their Android smartphones

And who knows, perhaps this sort of thing could catch on to the point where handsets are sold as barebones devices that allow users to select the OS of their choice during the setup processClick to expand...

If you would have said that a year ago I would have laughed it off but not it seems like that might really be the way of the future.

There hasn't been any real innovation in the smartphone segment for the last few years, interchangeable parts on smartphones may very well be the way of the future, there just doesn't seem to be anyway to improve on what's already here without some drastic improvement like upgradability.

As far as making Windows 10 free to android users seems like a very smart move on Microsoft's part. There are currently more android phones in peoples pockets than any other smartphone. Making their OS free to them is a very easy way to get their OS in everyone's pocket.

Have any other users tried using the speed-reading API "Spritz"(sprintzinc.com) on their Windows Phone? I am amazed to see that it works flawlessly on some sites - for example, www.oysterbooks.com. Maybe this explains why there are no WinOS apps....because it works on the native IE environment? Any other word or insights on Spritz apps or sites for WinOS?

I'm looking for a wireless audio soundsystem that supports windows phone. Anybody knows anything? So far I found only some that support ios/android

Answer:What wireless audio system works with windows phone?

If you are talking about "Bluetooth" audio, if it supports iOS/Android, then it also supports Windows Phone. They just specifically name those 2 because most people need to see it works with their system, but if it's Bluetooth, then it works with Bluetooth, which Windows Phone has as good as iOS and Android. It would also be compatible with Blackberry, just to cover additional bases. ;)
IMPORTANT NOTE: If the audio system relies on a special "remote control" that pairs with a special app, then it may not work with WP. That would be a very rare circumstance, however.

I am trying to get my Windows 7 machine activated after a hard drive change and clean install.

It would not automatically activate online so I did the phone activation, no problem, I get the new conformation ID numbers and am good to go right?

NOT!

I originally upgraded the hard drive and reinstalled Windows and activated it. Windows 7 said it was activated before I tried to do the free upgrade to Windows 10. After I did the upgrade to Windows 10 it said it can't activate do to a blocked key.

I went back and fourth going back to Windows 7 and made sure it was activated and then did the upgrade again and same thing, the key is blocked. I even spoke to a few people at Microsoft and keep getting different So-called" answers and nothing works.

I even had it on Windows 7, 3-4 days saying it was activated before trying the upgrade and same thing the key is blocked.
I have even done multiple clean installs and just tried reverting back to Windows 7 through Windows 10 a few times. Most of (maybe all) the activation's from a clean install I had to do the over the phone and thought it was good to go until trying to upgrade to 10.

But NOW!

I reinstalled 7 again, activated it, now hours later it is saying the key is invalid in Windows 7. I never had this on Windows 7 until now.

Installed Windows Insider in my phone and got the Windows Mobile 10 Preview. Now I need to reset my phone back to Windows Phone 8.1.

Please help me to restore my phone to 8.1 without using the Phone Recovery tool.

Answer:Reset my phone back to Windows Phone 8.1 from 10 without using Windows Phone Recovery Tool

What error do you get. Is it after the installation of the WPRT or if you connect your phone and download the firmware of your phone?
The WPRT is specially made for the roll back but if you do not want to use it you need to use for example the Nokia Care suite but for a novice this is much more complicated then the WPRT.
So I would suggest to register and reply on this post which error you get.
Firewalls and virus scanners may prevent the installation of the WPRT and a network may prevent the downloading of the firmware and an "bad" connection between your PC and your phone will also give errors. (change USB cable or USB ports or PC)
Good luck

On a phone, some clever genius thought it was a great idea to allow a browser to be able to have zillions of tabs and each of those tabs does NOT take up any resources like CPU just because its open.

It comes alive when you switch to it

Are there any browsers that behave the same?
Is there a Chrome extension that copies this behaviour?

modem:
U.S. Robotics 56K Internal Modem for Windows PCs
Model No. 3CP5699A
Manufacturer US Robotics

i cannot find the problem with my modem, i have 2 phone lines at my house one i use for internet one for talking. When i connect my modem to line1 (talk line) it dials fine. when i connect to line2, i get this static like sound for 2 seconds, then all sound stops, then the modem starts dialing but unfortunately nothing happens afterwards until constant loud beeping starts like when you hold the phone and donot dial for a minute.

I tried with another jack, i even called the phone company technician, he has plugged his laptop and it worked fine, and he said i might have a short circuit on my computer.
But even if that is the case, how come the other line works and this one does not?
Also, if i plug the phone directly into the jack on wall i get dialtone and i can use it. If i plug it to the modem, then extend it to the phone, then i get problems like i need to de plug and replug each time after i use or else i donot get dialtone and that beeping.

I am sure it is something to do with the modem, but i donot know what. my roommate uses other line so i need to make this line work.
I tried short cords, different cords, cord adapters, but as i said, it works fine with one phone line and other one does not work.

Hi all, So I started having a problem last week where my internet would die, but I would continue to have phone service through Comcast. I use the same device for both phone and internet. To fix the problem, I would unplug the modem, wait a few seconds, and plug it back in. Within about 30 seconds of receiving power, I had internet again. The time in which I lost internet from restarting the modem began to decrease in time. Initially I had 12 hours of uptime, but I began to lose internet within an hour, and then a few minutes. Every time, however, I still had phone. Comcast came out today and replaced my modem. It is a completely different model. The problems resurfaced tonight, exactly the same. My signal strength is very good, so I know that isn't a problem, I have seen it on two different computers, both with and without a router. When I don't have internet, I can still access the diagnostics page of the modem, where it says everything is fine. So does anybody have ideas as to what might be the problem?
 

Answer:Phone works, Internet cuts out

Try replacing the microfilter, also known as a "splitter" (the part that connects to your outside line).

Can't figure this one out.

My phone and iPad will not connect via HDMI to a new teevee. The PC will.

I am using an Apple HDMI converter for the iPad; my phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note and I am using an MHL Adapter.

I am using the same HDMI cable in all three instances.

Both the MHL and the Apple adapters "recognize" that there is power plugged into them.

The TV shows "No Signal" when the MHL and Apple are plugged in.

When I take the exact same setups to my other TV, everything works fine.

I have flushed the cache on my phone and rest the iPad.

Help?

ETA: I have discovered I have SOUND just no picture, on BOTH iPad and Phone. The iPad indicates it has a TV connected, as well (the phone doesn't have that option).

I have a Pentium II 400 using Win 98 and a Motorolla SM56 AD04 56K winmodem. I got the computer last september and I've been using a phone line for internet access. But since I have 2 phone line and the phone line I am not using has call waiting, I decided to use my second phone line for internet access.

Initially, the problem was every once in a while ( every 2 - 3 days), I get connected with this second phone line, but most of the time, I get 'No dial tone', even though the phone cord is plugged in and is tested to work with the phone. When changing to this phone line, I changed the phone number settings. ( With this settings - I was able to connect to the internet with the first phone line - the one that I used to use for internet access ).

A day before changing my phone lines, I installed a shareware called Modem Booster (which is suppose to tune up your modem so you'll get faster speed - downloaded from download.com ). Also, I made sure that I uninstalled the shareware before I changed my phone line.

Could it be that 'modem booster' ruined the settings in my modem? That's what I thought initially so I installed modem booster with my second phone line ( I was able to connect to the internet for 3 days but then the line didn't work anymore. Next, I upgraded my modem driver which did not help at all. Could it be that my second phone line doesn't have enough power ( or something) to provide internet access? HELP.

From what i understand you plug this into a regular phone line and you can then use your VOIP service to call from any phone line that its plugged into?
 

Answer:uniden VOIP phone, can sum1 tell me how it works?

I believe it has a VOIP Telephone adaptor built in that you'll have to register with your VOIP provider.

According to uniden.com the same model (or is it?) is used with packet8 voip service

www.packet8.net

My suggestion is get whatever VOIP service you want, use there hardware and wire it into your existing phone lines in the house ( not as complicated as it sounds) you can even check out the support sections of your selected provider for detailed instructions.

I was trying to hook up to vonage yesterday but failed and quit. Now, when I hooked everything back up the way it was (I hope) everything works fine but I have no landline phone service. I have xp - dsl modem zyxel P 600 series.- linksys wireless B broadband router (not using wireless though) Earthlink ISP . From the phone wall jack there is a combination splitter/filter (I think it is) with the modem plugged into the dsl side and my landline phone plugged into the other side. But phone won't work. When I plug the phone in straight to wall it works. There is a dsl filter on the phone. I unplugged modem, router, plugged them in again, phone still doesn't work. Don't know where to go from here. Help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:modem works but landline phone doesn't

The filter is broken. If you have another, try it and see if that fixes it. They are cheapish to buy a new one. If it was one the ISP sent you, you could tell them and they may send you another for free.
The fact the landline works without the filter and doesn't with the filter plugged in means that it is a problem with the filter.

Hi there,

I've just moved into a new place in France, and tried to connect my laptop to the WiFi here. My phone connected immediately with no issue, buy my laptop (which finds the network fine) connects only to show a 'limited' signal (with the yellow triangle/exclamation mark). I have 5 full bars of signal, and sometimes the little exclamation mark symbol even disappears. However even then, if I try to open a new webpage, I end up with an error page (this webpage is not available, ERR_TIMED_OUT amongst others). The webpage looks like it's trying to connect, it says connecting/establishing secure connection etc in the bottom left as it usually would. Only nothing ever loads.

I've found other people with similar issues on other threads and feel like I've tried everything bit nothing has changed. I have of course turned the modem off, waited and turned it back on again, I've run millions of commands on command prompt, tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless adaptor..I'm really not techy so I'm very stuck.

Would really appreciate any advice! Thanks in advance.

So the cable guy came today and now I have Internet.

The wire running from the cable modem to my computer seems to be working -- I'm on the Internet RIGHT NOW!

However, if I unplug the wire from the computer and hook it up to either:
1. my cable phone router (a Vonage phone, which I've had for years and have never had issue with)
or
2. my Netgear router (WGR614 v6) (which I've also had for years and never had an issue)...

I cannot get on the 'net.

I've tried resetting both of these, no effect.

The cable modem shows that everything is fine (that is, all the lights that should be up and blinking, are)...

The Netgear router goes through the self test, the "i" light flashes and the antenna light is solid...which both indicate I should have wireless. My computer shows that I am connected per the wireless icon in the corner (and when I click "View Available Wireless Networks," Netgear is at the top of the list with all bars and it reads "Connected" -- except I am not).

I've restarted the computer too. No change.

Thoughts?
 

Answer:direct connect works, but wireless and cable phone -- no dice

First thing to do would be to check the ISP FAQ from their support and see if there are any guides for set up. They may have some different settings that need to be configured for access.
When you say you reset the routers, did you go back to factory defaults and redo your connections from the beginning? May need to do that.

Answer:How can I get the version of 8.1 for the Verizon Nokia Icon phone that works with the health band?

Developers preview with update 1 is sufficient. Do you know how to get DP?

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect
my apps to the internet but I can't one.

Having failed to be able to update to Windows Phone 10 many times, I was using 8.1 until yesterday on my Lumia 620 LTE. A Windows Central message made me think I should try again and I spent 1/2 the afternoon "upgrading."
Is it worth it? The upgrading process asserted so, saying "it will be worth the wait." I'm not so sure.
My favorite app is the music player. Near as I could tell, they called that Xbox Music in 8.0 and 8.1. In 10 there's a _new_ app called Groove Music. Evidently, Xbox Music isn't available for Windows 10. I searched in the Store and it wasn't there. Groove Music has a new look but apparently (I spent maybe 20 minutes looking it over) has very similar functionality. The basic stuff is there. My problem with it is the FF and REW functionality when I play my MP3s. More often than not I play 3 hour long MP3s. If I'm using Xbox Music, and I'm, say, at 1:49 and I put my finger on and hold the > icon, it started to FF at a very modest rate but as long as I keep my finger on the icon the rate gradually increases. I LOVE that functionality. It does the same thing with the < REW function. In Groove Music I'm stuck with the one slow rate. That sucks. It's way harder to move to where I want to go in my 3 hour MP3s. I searched for other music players in the Store but the two I tried were laughably awful, same thing when I was running Windows Phone 8.x (I had some issues with Xbox Music and hoped there was a better MP3 player but couldn't ...

Hi Dsieber,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per your query we understood that you are facing issue with No boot on ThinkPad T400.
 
This might be issue with display resolution.

Check booting the system in safe mode.
If the system is able to boot to safe mode then uninstall display drivers and check.
Check if can connect to any external display (TV or Monitor) to verify if the system is booting.

Hope this helps.

So I keep getting these emails (in four places) and texts about changing my password on my phone to an app password because of two two-step, so I created an app password for my phone. However, I cannot seem to find where to update my MS account password on my phone. Email+Accounts doesn't give an option since it's restricted to sync (there's no delete command) and inside there it has no password change option.

I know Windows has a UserVoice site to make suggestions of features you would like, but I would like to find a place for support / troubleshooting with a technician concerning my 1020 random rebooting?
I have taken various steps to try and discover what it might be... I have turned off features, turned on features, uninstalled apps that might be a problem, turned on and off wifi / bluetooth. Basically I keep plugging away at what might be the issue. On a windows computer I have tools that I can run, as well as looking at Task Manager to see if there is some Process running that should not be. On the phone I don't know how to do that so I cant effectively troubleshoot the same way.
The bottom line is, I want to help the eco system because I truly believe in logic Microsoft has started with, and I would think others like me would be valuable beta testers in making the OS flawless, all I need is either someone on the inside, or perhaps some tools to help discover issues that will frustrate the masses if they were switching to the MS os.

Answer:Is there a place to get Windows Phone support / troubleshoot with technician on phone issues?

I think there was a way to get ahold of Nokia support at one time. I'm not sure of that status. If you search in your device specific forum you might be able to find a contact. Someone else may be able to provide a better answer.

I'm thinking about switching from my Lumia Icon to a Samsung Galaxy S6 since I'm getting tired of waiting for Microsoft to bring a new Windows Phone to Verizon. I will return to Windows eventually though if Microsoft ever releases a decent flagship Windows Phone on Verizon again. But until then I'm getting quite fed up and I'm losing my patience. I've waited over 2 years for a new phone and now it seems like it could be more years before there's even a possibility of a new flagship coming to Verizon. I'm locked in to Verizon because of a shared business account so I can't just switch carriers on a whim. If I do switch though, will I be able to transfer all my contacts and text messages over to the S6?

Answer:Can you transfer text messages and contacts from a Windows Phone to an Android phone?

Hi there,
WindowsCentral members would be more familiar with transferring SMS to a Windows Phone, rather than away from it.
Contacts definitely can be transferred. I'm not sure about SMS (Samsung Smart Switch is for transferring data from another Android device or an iPhone).
I'd suggest that you ask over at our sister site AndroidCentral. They would probably be better able to help. Ask a Question - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

They gave me a new one but my account was registered in the phone they gave me the first time. On my second phone i registered the same account and i changed the password so it could not be access from the original phone. To my surprise, the new phone never ask for the new password.
