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

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

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?

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

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.)

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.

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...

It looks like the 31 March deadline for the latest Edge promotions is the date of invoice rather than the date of order. Given Lenovo's reported long build time and slow delivery (= late invoice), I suspect that ording now from the Lenovo web site will see an invoice date outside the qualifying period. Even a dealer who says he can 'get one in' may not deliver and invoice until April or beyond. I think the only option is to find a dealer who unequivocally has current stock.Can anyone shed any light on the likely position. I do, though, wonder about trying to take advantage of Lenovo Cashback at all, given the horror stories reported here.

Answer:Edge 31 March promotion deadline - order date or invoice date?

My experience with cashback is a deathly silence from Lenovo to emails asking for progress on the cash or even recognition that there has been a registration for cashback...Currently considering giving Lenovo some publicity on the matter.Unless you have a lot of time to possibly get no where I would steer clear of the alleged cashback scheme...

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

Hi!

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.

Non-solution:
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.

Solution:
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:


Code:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\DropTarget]

 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...

Not true that Start>Documents are always in alphabetical order - you must have done a right click and then Sort By Name at some time; Sort By Name is also available in Programs, Favourites etc.If you disable this it will only list the documents, files and other items used in the order they were undertaken.

I have an extensive music library(like most people)...and my music is sorted by DATE ADDED,...as i'm accustomed to this way...but here is my problem...when I sort by date added...the track numbers in the all my albums appear out of order....just like here:click hereI'm sure like myself, there are loads of people that like to listen to an album in the EXACT WAY that is on the CD recorded by the artist. I know i can re-arrange this as a playlist but its a lot of hassle and it wont solve the problem in my actual music library which will still show in the incorrect order. There MUST be a solution out there.....When I listen to music I most start my listening session with the music I have added most recently. If I have added an entire album recently I want to hear the album in the order the "artist" intended it to be heard. I would think many people would be keen to hear the things they have added most recently. The lack of an option to sort by "Date Added by Track#" is terribly annoying for me.

Happy Holidays, everybody!

I've got a 90th birthday picture project that I'm assembling and am getting pictures from several sources. Sometimes I'll get two or three sets of image files, all of which are labeled "img_001.jpg, img002.jpg, img003.jpg", etc. These come from several past years. When they're dumped from a thumb drive to my working folder, and then displayed, they get all intermixed. (I use irfanview to view the collection, to assure they're sharp focused, etc.)

I sorted the folder by date, went to the first file and launched irfanview. I get the selected file. If I click the "next arrow", I might get the next physical file, not the next-by-date. The program has a slideshow function that will sort it for you and display by date.

What I really want is to get the files into the date order physically on the disk, so that when copied onto a digital picture frame, for example, it will play sequentially by date if possible. I don't know that they have a lot of intelligence, to sort the pix by itself.

I tried sorting by date and the copying to a different folder on a different disk, but it always changes when I access it afterward. With 400+ pictures, I don't want to do them one-by-one.

Any freeware out there that'll do it for me?

Thanks!

For a long time, if I downloaded a folder from Google chrome, it would go to the downloads folder in Microsoft explorer with the latest downloaded file on top. I'm not sure how I changed it, but somehow the download folder now has the looks of the music library with categories in the details view of "name","contributing artist", "title", "album". I can sort them by name alphabetically, but not by date downloaded. If I don't remember the name of the download, I'll have to search for it in this huge folder of lots of different downloads, and if it has a weird name as some downloads do, it will be difficult. Is there a way to go back to getting the downloads folder like a documents folder (or however it was) and be able to arrange them by date downloaded?

When I download photos from my Sony Cybershot to my notebook, using Windows Camera wizard to MY PICTURES relevant sub-file, they remain in the jpg file (& date) number order. But when I view or edit them in MS Picture Manager, I find some of my photos date order has been mixed-up compared to the order of taking and storing them on the camera folder and in the Explorer/My Pictures sub-file. So, when I simply wish to view them in a slideshow sequentially they are of course displayed as well out of order. Nor can I find a facility in MS PM to re-arrange them in date order? Furthermore, MS PM will not allow me to drag & drop them back into the date order (which would be a long job sometimes with holiday photos in any case!).

I'm not sure that you can change the order in which they are actually downloaded. However, you can change the order in which they are displayed. If you click on the "Received" tab it will sort them. Click it again and it will reverse the order and so on. You can also click e.g. the From tab to sort them that way.

Hi there
Is it possible in IE8 / IE9 to make the History page show sites in LAST VISITED order. I.e the site you just visited is AT THE TOP of say todays date.

The default alphabetical method IMO is totally useless if you've visited a lot of sites and you want to go back to one you've forgotten the name of but you remember it was probably for example in the last 5 or 6 sites visited.

I can get the info from a server log but I should be able to get it directly in the history page in the browser.

Hi,
I would like to use a VLOOKUP formula in my bank statement sheets in order to populate item codes from a lookup table. Some of the entries (lookup values) in a statement contain a date in the form of ddmmm (e.i. 21JUL). Is there a way of creating a VLOOKUP formula that will ignore the date in the lookup value and therefore populate correct item codes into the statement sheets...for example I have several instances of the entry BANK TRANSFER ON ddmmm, where ddmmm is the date (21JUL, 11AUG, 05SEP). I would create a lookup table with a single entry BANK TRANSFER ON and the VLOOKUP formula will recognise this entry ignoring the date in the lookup value.
Hope it makes sense. Thank you in advance. Heidi

Is it possible to order the Lenovo Ideapad Y400 in the US site and free ship it to my indian Address?

Answer:Can i order Y400 from the US site and free ship it to India?

hi vijay_lingesh,
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
If you're planning to order the Ideapad Y400 online via http://shop.lenovo.com, as per the Lenovo's Shopping FAQ's:
 
"Lenovo is unable to ship orders internationally from the US due to export restrictions and policies. However, orders can be made from the Lenovo.com site for your destination country."
 
You may also want to consider the warranty as not all lenovo systems have international warranty coverage in the India - see the Ideapad Limited International Warranty Service.
 
 
Best regards,
neokenchi

Question: Dell Order

I ordered 2 laptops online. Order # 2005705260971. I received a call from Dell's sales rep (heavy Indian accent). She told me she could offered me additional 3% discount and next day delivery. I was very happy. She then told me she has to cancel the original order and replace with new order. I told her whatever she need to do. She then told me she needs to recollect the payment. I said I don't feel comfortable to give her info over the phone. I later received an email cancellation and also another email  for the quote. However, she changed my original laptop with more expensive laptop and also she removed another laptop. I told her NO, I need the original one. She then sent me another quote with one original and one with different model. I again, told her NO. I need her to put back the same models. She keeps insisted this is the same spec I have with better price. I was mad and told her don't waste my time and just put back my original order. She said the order already cancel. I called the Dell CS, again, you can heard very heavy Indian's access. The rep asked me a lot of unrelated qs, although I have provided my original order #. At the end, I have to end the call. I tried to order with LIVE CHAT, and again, another Indian's rep. I gave up. I have NO problem with Indians.

I ordered parts to upgrade my Alienware Area 51-R2 whereupon the fun began. While I made 1 order Dell decided to charge my card for each individual part. My bank approved the first charge but when the second one came right behind it was declined until they could contact me and verify the purchase, which I did. 
I then tried to contact Dell this morning to complete everything. Big mistake. My first road block was the automated answering system. Obviously it was designed to frustrate customers and weed out all but the most serious people. After finally making contact with a live person ( a third party agent in I dia) tried to explain my concern. After much fumbling with the English language and accents this agent transferred me to an office that was closed and they hung up on me. It took me 3 more attempts following the same procedures to get in contact with someone who could complete my order. This agent ran card with no problems. Process complete. Silly me. @minutes after I hung up I received a call from a different Dell agent to confirm that I was ordering these parts. I verified this.
To my complete surprise when I checked my bank account I come to find out that both agents ran my card. So as of right now I am being charged twice for the same order. I called Dell back.....AGAIN. When I finally made contact with an agent and explained my problem he kept trying to tell me that the charges were pending and that my card was not charged yet. He could not understand (languag...

Last month, November 18th, I ordered a Dell Zino HD. The initial delivery date was December 2nd. Later the date got pushed back to Dec. 10th. Then, just the other day I look at my order status and it says it's been canceled! What!? Dell never contacted me regarding this. Now there is a new order of the same Zino HD on my account and a new delivery date of Dec. 23rd. Why? I've tried to contact Dell and couple times. Dell has yet to contact me in return to fix the problem, or at the very least explain what's going on.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A friend of mine bought a few dell parts namely a switch. It turned up 2 days ago and they sent another and it arrived yesterday. They realised their error and now want it back. What should he do. I am specifically interested in european law as I live in ireland so UK laws dont apply.The fact is he bought it to sell it as he works for the army over here and they needed one for his work so he purchased it on his credit card and now he has sold it to the army they want this first one back.

Answer:Order Error and Dell

if Dell sent two iems instead of one it was obviously an error, and they are perfectly entitled ask for the duplicate back - I would be astonished to find that anyone would think otherwise.Your friend paid for one item - he can't expect to keep the second one, it isn't his property, it belongs to Dell, under European law, UK law, or any other country's law.

Answer:Want to order a recover disk for 3000 j200 9690 84u but its intimidating the support site.

Hi, When I ordered on Dec. 2007 the Recovery Disk for my Lenovo 3000 J115 desktop had to call 1-800-426-7378. Don?t remember the prompts, but found a rep that transferred me to what appeared to be the right department. May want to make sure you specify that it is for a Desktop or you?ll get bounced around to other departments, like I did. I gave the 1st rep all my info including model #, name, address, serial code, etc?, to place order, then at the end he asked if it was laptop and I said no and he had to transfer me to the desktop department & I had to start all over with the order.  Would like to have been able to order it online, but that option did not appear to be available. It was out of warranty when I purchased it so it cost around $60 with shipping. Now on a related note, my chance to vent about the 1st time I tried to order the recovery disk. 1st a little background info. Purchased my Lenovo 3000 J115 Nov. 2006. It was installed with Windows XP and had a voucher to purchase Vista upgrade, when Vista was released, which I did. Vista arrived around Feb. 2007, & I promptly installed it. So far so good. March 2007 purchased music equipment specifically Digidesign hardware with Pro Tools software to use with my new Lenovo computer.  I know comp. may not be built for that, but I?m just getting into music software editing.

Hope someone at dell can help me resolve this (Service Request Number 940696238).
At the end of November, I placed an order for an XPS 13 with i7 processor and 16gb memory.
On  11/22/2016, I received the order but found that it came with a 8gb memory instead of 16gb.
Contacted customer support and the agent agreed to send out a replacement unit.
On 12/14/2016, received the replacement unit, but it also had 8gb memory instead of 16gb.
Contacted customer support again and reported the issue.  The agent said another replacement unit would be sent out shortly, and emailed me return labels for the two units I already received.  The agent also told me I could return the two units AFTER I received the replacement unit.
On 12/22/2016, received an email from a customer support sr. associate named Siddharth Mondal, saying the replacement unit had been delivered according to tracking information and asking whether everything is fine.  He was obviously not aware of my situation about the two incorrectly-configured laptops.  I emailed back saying the replacement unit again has the wrong memory size.  However, soon after that, I checked the support request status via dell website and the status says the case is closed.
Bottom line: Sitting here with two wrong orders (original plus replacement) and two return labels for them, still without the correct order, and the support request appears to be closed.

I find it very unfair that Dell specifies the shipment but not the delivery date on its website. The shipment date was supposed to be 1-2 days, but what they didn't tell me was that it would ship from China, so I'll have to wait almost two weeks!

1) My desktop takes forever to boot up, then after being on 5 minutes it reboots itself so I am unable to run utilities or virus scans. I have the Dell Reinstallation CD, + the Dell Drivers and Utilities cd, however I can't even get into Boot Options to change the boot order to cd drive The System32 files are damaged, + the windows installer is corrupt. What to do now?
2) In the past I have used a special cable to connect defective hard drive to a functioning pc and use it's OS to run scans and remove viruses from the defective drive. But I don't know how using this method would help if the problem with defective drive is damaged or missing system files. Ie. I do not know how to repair these files while the defective hard drive is connected to another functioning pc OS. Any thoughts on this?

3) One other concern, there is a product key # label on the Dell case, however as I recall this rarely matches the product key in the machine (in BIOS or hard drive???) . I'm wondering if I will have trouble activating the OS if I only have product key on outside of case?

1) system32 nowt to do with bios if having issues entering bios then will need to reset it by taking battery out for a minute
you can not do anything else till you fix the boot order but obviously you could attempt a safe mode approach pressing f8 repeatedly on start up

Well, I get the PXE-E61 error on my computer every once in a while; maybe 1/5 times I start it up, and when it does happen I usually have to restart about two or three times to get it to start up correctly.

I 'm not sure if it's a huge problem, but I would really like to get rid of it altogether because it is kind of annoying. Nothing else is wrong with my computer.

I know changing the boot order is supposed to get rid of this, and I was given a link and a suggestion, but my options are slightly different than the ones I found in the link.

I just want to be completely sure I'm doing this right.

This is the link How do I resolve and PXE-E61 error message and crash?

This is the suggestion:
1. DVD/CD drive
2. flash (FDD)
3. Any USB device (floppy, external HDD, etc)
4. HDD

I checked the BIOS and the boot order on mine is:

1. HDD
2. USB
3. CD/DVD/CD-R Drive
4. Removable Devices
5. Network

I'm guessing it should go:

1. CD/DVD/CR-R Drive
2. Removable Devices
3. USB
4. HDD

And should I take out Network or leave it in somewhere (and where)? What IS the Network option?

Hi,

Trying to Install XP on an old Dell GX150

The machine is strange to begin with.

BIOS:
Primary Drive 0 ..... Hard Drive --Press Enter shows 41 GB HD [Hard Drive Jumper set to CS] (considering setting Jumper to Master)
Primary Drive 1 ..... Not installed
Secondary Drive 0 .... CD Reader
Secondary Drive 1 .... not installed
==================

BOOT SEQUENCE (Selections)
Hard drive
Floppy
Floppy Drive .. not installed
Floppy Drive .. not installed

There is no CD SELECTION! (my problem)

=======================

After POST it stalls with a message:

Primary Hard Drive not found.
Secondary Hard Drive not found.
Strike F1 to continue, F2 for Setup.

Pressing F1 goes to the HD boot.

They bought a machine and a hard drive. The hard drive has an English version of XP Home.

They want me to install a Spanish version of XP Pro.

Can't do that until I can a) select the CD as a boot device or hit some other Function key to get a Boot Menu to appear.

Tried F12 but that's not working (and I'm not sure that it would anyway) because of the drives not being found.

I've never seen this before.

Any ideas?

Appreciate any help and suggestions

thx
 

Answer:Problem w/Boot Order Dell GX150

Based on the machine's age, I'm assuming both the HDD and CD drive are IDE (80-pin) connections.

* Manually setting the master/slave pins on both drives is a good idea. Be sure the cable(s) match up to the corresponding master or slave setting for each drive.

* Check power to each drive. You should be able to lightly touch the exterior of the HDD case to see if it's spinning. If the CD drive has power, you should either hear it spin or be able to hit the eject button to open the tray.

* No luck yet? Unplug the machine, remove the BIOS (button size) battery from the board, wait about 60 seconds and reinsert it. This will clear the BIOS - you'll have to reset the date/time but it may also clear any glitches.

* If the drives are getting power, try changing out the IDE cable(s) from the drive(s) to the board.

If none of these things solve the issue, please repost. If the PC won't recognize either drive, my suspicion is the drive controller on the motherboard is bad.

Hope this helps.

If you have Windows 8, just insert the media and install it as per normal installation. You should not have to worry about what files are installed in what order. Drivers that you might need you could install after the Windows installation. You might need another computer with internet access to get the drivers you need as for if the Ethernet Adapter driver is not bundled in the Windows 8 installation then you will need another computer to get the necessary driver(s) for devices that require drivers beyond the standard Windows 8 installation.

I recently (April 2014) bought a Dell Inspiron 15 computer (4GB of Ram and 500GB hard drive) with Windows 8 installed. I have created a backup image of the OS and also burned a bootable disk so that I can reinstall Windows 8 at a future date.
 
My old computer (which uses Win XP) permits me to change the boot order sequence by using the f12 key during the startup process to access the BIOS and then edit the boot order sequence so that the machine boots from a DVD or USB drive. This makes it possible to restore a backup image from a previous date or even to use a different OS, e.g. Linux.
 
My problem is that the f12 key does not work on the new machine and I do not know how to create a boot order sequence that will permit me to boot from a DVD or USB drive instead of the hard drive. So at this point, I cannot use the bootable recovery disk that I prepared. I understand that there is now UEFI technology that controls booting.
 
Question: How can I make make the new computer boot from a DVD or USB drive?
 
Thanks in advance.

Thoughtful Skeptic

Answer:How do I change the boot order sequence in a Dell Inspiron 15 using Windows 8?

Immediately after pressing the power button start tapping the f2 key until the BIOS opens.
 
Be sure to change the BIOS to Legacy, then change the boot order to what you need.
 
Press f10 to save the changes, you may be asked to press Y to confirm your choice, the exit the BIOS.

He said he sent these items on the 22nd of Feb. its now 11th march. i believe he's from Boston mass.

I live in nothern Ireland, and he said he sent them with some sort of USPS Airmail, that cost a total of $60.

Should it take so long for this to ship?

Oh and for those of you who are from UK or whoever may know this. a British mail company called "Royal mail" currently had a mail strike in Belfast city (Northern ireland capital) i believe anything that comes into northern ireland comes through belfast.

Also he got these items for my B'day so he wrapped them up so i wouldnt pay VAT as it is a gift.

Thanks, Adam.

Answer:should Shipping take 2 WEEKS AND 3 DAYS!!!

I really hope he sent it registered and insured mail Otherwise you're screwed!

Per title, my PC randomly freezes with a loud buzzing noise and sometimes I'll have to hard reset and sometimes it'll restart on it's own.  It varies from a week, 10 days, couple days.  There's no rhyme or reason that I can find.
 
I'm usually gaming when this happens with youtube in the background or flash running.
 
My PC specs:
 
Built August 2015
EVGA 750W gold power supply
Intel I7-5820k
16GB Ram, 4gb each, 2400DDR
MSI X99A Motherboard
Nvidia GTX970
 
I had been using the overclocked version of GTX970 and it was freezing back then too so I thought it was the video card.  I replaced it with a non overclocked GTX970(current for about 3 months) and it still freezes randomly)
 
What I've tried:
 
Memtest
SFC scan
Re-formating, different OS multiple times
Isolating RAM one by one
I have a new PSU to try out too but it would not turn on when I tried putting it together(maybe I need to unseat everything first?)
 
I've attached my event viewer for analysis.  Thank you very much!

Im startings to recieve BSoDs now, every few days. The most recent was about half an hour ago, I didn't catch the error message this time except something about "lvrs" if I recall.

Hi to all
I have random very random BSODs on my older PC.
Specs:
P4 3.0ghz, 2gb DDR1 PC3200, radeon 9600 pro (using latest legacy drivers for Vista on Win7 for my ATI card), Win7 7600 build - and I have terrible BSOD problems since I upgraded from Vista 32bit. These BSODs are occuring in very random fashion. Every 2-3 weeks only once, or every 2-3 days at once. I didn't see that BSODs occured in the row at the same day. I checked also for any memory problems (Windows memory diagnostic tool from Win7) and it found nothing. I have latest BIOS and I didn't have any single problems when I had Win Vista Sp2. These BSODs are annoying really, I tried to resolve this and I didn't find any solution. My memory is okay, my hardware is okay and I didn't had any problems with Win Vista SP2 on the same PC.
Also I analyzed these provided minidumps (which are here) and only what I think about this, that some driver or drivers are causing this BSOD. I think that's 100% software problem. So please help me - please analyze these minidumps which I provided and please reply to me what do you think. And many help to anyone which is trying to help me. Please reply here what do you think about these minidumps.
Endless thanks & cheers!

Answer:Very random BSODs - every 2-3 days or every 2-3 weeks

Hi -

Please follow these instructions --> BSOD Posting Instructions

We've tried all the fixes, and batch files from MS, and elsewhere, but Almost all new installations of Windows 7 will just not get updates. I have 2 machines we have formatted twice and reinstalled Win 7 and one literally has been sitting waiting for updates for 2 solid weeks. (it's not crucial, and we're sort of using it as a test. We're starting to wonder if it's an I.P. issue or something, because it only seems to be our location. I am going to grab that Vaio and bring it home and see if it works here, but for the first 3 years in our location, and some 3000 jobs (obviously not all Win 7 installs) we had no problems. Now, whether you set it to automatically update, or download and let me decide, changing time and date etc. Activated or not. It's really odd, and none of my research is finding a cause for it. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks,

Answer:Windows updates on Win 7 not starting after days or even weeks

Hi Js,
Update runs are notoriously slow at the moment, but not that BAD and at some stage i would have thought there would have been a timeout sent by your server, which brings me to, have you reached your licence allocation .

However,
Are they just sat with the message checking for updates, or is it another.
Either way could you post a copy of the last days entries from the windowsupdate log, we'll go from there
(moving post to Updates/activations please read the stickys at the top of that sub-forum i will more than likely ask for some of the other operations)

Hey guys,

I've recently noticed my computer randomly clicking and pressing enter...

I decided to open up text pad, and saw that things were being typed...things that I have typed previously, such as Google searches I made weeks ago and my login/password for my school email.

A Google search brought me here and I went ahead and did some scans and saved some logs. Hope you guys can help, I'm a bit worried and feel my privacy may be in the process of being violated by malware.

Nothing is coming up with Virus scans using Microsoft Antivirus or Malware Bytes

Attached are the logs for RogueKiller, TDSKiller, HitmanPro, and MGTools.
 

Answer:Computer Typing Things I've Typed Days/Weeks Ago

I just thought of something...
This actually started a couple days ago, and when it happened it typed the same things it typed this time...
I have a Razer Mechanical Keyboard that has macro setting things that I really don't know how to work. Perhaps instead of having malware I inadvertently set up a macro and have activated it a couple times?

Hi!
I and my colleagues have a problem with Performance Monitor (Perfmon), and only at
Window 8. 



On the Quality Assurance apartment that I work, we use Perfmon to keep track of memory leaks by logging private bites and handle count for the applications we test.
But when we use windows 8 we always have the same problem.
Perfmon stops logging after 1-3 days. Even if we do no settings at the Stop Conditions or we set Overall duration to 3 weeks.


What do we do wrong? Is it a bug?



Please help, we need to perform stability test at our application on various operative systems.



Thanks!

//Madlene

Answer:Perfmon stops logging after 1-3 days even duration set to 3 weeks at windows 8.

Hi,
Please try the steps below for test.
To schedule the Stop condition for a Data Collector Set
1.  In Windows Performance Monitor, expand Data Collector Sets and click User Defined .
2.  In the console pane, right-click the name of the Data Collector Set that you want to schedule and click Properties .
3.  Click the Stop Condition tab.
4.  To stop collecting data after a period of time, select overall duration and choose the quantity and units. Note that your overall duration must be longer than the interval at which data is sampled in order to see any data in the report. Do not select
an overall duration if you want to collect data indefinitely.
5.  Use limits to segment data collection into separate logs by selecting When a limit is reached, restart the data collector set . If both limit types are selected, data collection will stop or restart when the first limit is reached.

     
Select Duration to configure a time period for data collection to write to a single log file.     
Select Maximum Size to restart the Data Collector Set or to stop collecting data when the log file reaches the limit.
Note: If an overall duration is configured, it will override limits.
6.  If you have configured an overall duration, you can select Stop when all data collectors have finished to let all data collectors finish recording the most recent values before the Data Collector Set is stopped.

History Browsing: "View By Order Visited Today"

Hello,
Instead History will show Recents Pages by X pages (Recent FIFO method), it shows by "Today".

Every time when it is 00:00 (midnight), it resets all the history I've had.

I want to change it to "View By Order Visited" or "View By Order Visited for couple days", instead of "View By Order Visited Today" (Browsing History displays only for one day), So that If it pass midnight - I could still see the last links.

Any Edit Reg / Tweaking ?

Thank You

Answer:Replacing "View By Order Visited Today" to "View By Order Visited"

Wow that is so bad why on earth did they add Today to View by Order Visited
I don't want to depress you but it is the same in IE9
I doubt theres anything you can do: anybody know different ?

You could switch to another browser that has better options

So if I want to calculate project periods by adding working days I normally use the formula WORKDAY(start_date,days,holidays).This is normally fine, however it only deals with 5 day working weeks (i.e. Monday to Friday). What if i have a project on which we are working Monday to Saturday, which is a 6 Work Day week. Is there a simple way of formulating this. For instance if I want to know a date which is 12 workdays later than Thursday 24th September 2015, I want the answer to be Thursday 8th October 2015, and not Monday 12th October 2015, that =WORKDAY will throw back.

So today I ordered the Yoga 13 and on the sales page it says "more than 4 weeks" and that the date could change.  After I ordered it, it says the estimated ship date is January 4, 2013 on my status.  That's actually more than 8 weeks.  What's up with that?  Anybody on here gotten their Yoga 13 way before the estimated ship date or know anything about these estimates and how accurate they are? I really hope I don't have to wait until next year to get this. 

Answer:Yoga 13 Est. Ship Date Way More Than 4 Weeks

I think I'm just gonna cancel my order.  Think I'll just get a Thinkpad Twist or some other Windows 8 Ultrabook/Tablet Convertible.  I can't wait until next year to get my computer.  I think they pretty much didn't prepare for this launch and made very little product.  And now it's taking so long because they actually have to make them now to give to consumers.  There's no way a product should take 8 weeks from order to get it for a product that's already released.  Very disappointing.  They only give us 2 choices.  Best Buy or their website.   And Best Buy's Yoga already sold out and you can't find them anywhere.  I understand that the Yoga is in high demand but that's no excuse for this.  At least with companies that have products that are in high demand I can actually get their product when it comes out.  And if I have to wait, it's not 8 weeks.  Great product, extremely poor execution on letting customers actually BUY ONE and GET ONE.

Question: Is this in order?

I have a copy of XP bought with the bits with which I made machine A in Jan 2003. (and added SP2). 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. As e.g. the network wizard is better and also it will save me going through the long rigmarole of having to add SP2.
 

Answer:Is this in order?

It should work as long as the OEMs are both Pro, or both Home.
