Yoga 720 and Active Pen 2 issue

Question: Yoga 720 and Active Pen 2 issue

I purchased a Yoga 720 less than 3 weeks ago, it came with an Active Pen 2 and I've been using it in classes as a notebook with onenote.I was solving something one hour ago and stopped writing for a second and when I came back the pen started stuttering for some reason, as if the pen disconnects and reconnects rapidly, I know it does because when I try to select it stops the selection and repositions the selection spot.Wacom Pen app says battery is full I don't know what to doAlso the hover is also stuttery and is sometimes recognized as clicks

Hello. I am currentlly experiencing issues with Adobe Photoshop CS6 when using the Active pen that comes with the Yoga 14. When "Press and hold for right clicking" is disabled in Pen and Touch settings, any click-and-drag actions using the pen in Photoshop causes the cursor to stick. I recorded these to illustrate the problem: Using mouse (how it's supposed to work)Using pen (strangely enough, when I use screen recording, the pen's cursor doesn't appear to move, so I had to record with my phone to show the issue) If I use modifier keys (alt, shift, ctrl) while clicking with the pen in Photoshop, the same thing happens: the pen cursor seems to be stuck in place as I move the pen. These issues seem to happen exclusively with Photoshop - the pen behaves normally in other softwares. Also, I cannot enable "press and hold", because that will just lead to a different issue that has been known for years in Photoshop. I have tried different methods to fix this, including disabling Windows ink, and disabling press and hold is the only thing that works.

Hello, I just bought a Lenovo yoga 520 from a local retailer yesterday. It came with the Lenovo Active Pen. I tried to draw on Paint Tool SAI at night and I would just like to ask if it is normal that the tablet screen register my pinky (since it touches the screen first before the pen tip) before the actual pen? It is a bit distruptive when i am drawing because it will create a stroke by my pinky which I do not want. This morning when I tried to draw again, the pen to have some odd behavior. If I do a quick stroke/flick and lift my pen away from the screen, the stroke will not follow through and the screen is temporarily disabled and does not respond to mouse clicks or hand touches (as if I did not lift the pen up at all.) I have to tap the screen again with my pen and the stroke will connect to where I tapped. This issue does not happen when I wear a piece of cloth on my palm or if I draw the stroke slowly and life it up slowly.So I would just like to ask:1. If I buy a Bamboo styus (which I am aware is compatible with Yoga 520,) will I be able to draw faster strokes with smoother follow through?2. Is this a normal problem faced by fellow artists too?

So out of the box, my Yoga 920 was missing the batteries and tips for the Active Pen 2 but I got an empty pen.  So Lenovo ships me a new pen but this one is a Lenovo Active Pen although it does list 4096 levels of pressure.  What's the difference between the pens and is the original compatible with the Yoga 920?I have it still in the box... Thanks.

First let me vent my frustration with Lenovo for promising an active pen for the Yoga 15 and not delivering.   Over the years -and through several purchases- Lenovo has eroded my trust they will deliver on any promise.  Lenovo pre-sale marketing is all BS, I'll believe a feature when I see it implimented in a shipping unit.  I guess it's easy to grab consumer attention by over-promising and under-delivering. Back to the subject.  Given that we will probably never see an active pen for the Yoga 15, I am looking for recommnedations experiences regarding non-active fine-tipped pens that work well with the Yoga 15. So far I am looking at Adonit (Jot Pro) and dotpen products.   Has anyone had a positive experience with these products on the Yoga 15?

Hello!I got a brand new YOGA 520, which have i7-8th gen, Nvidia Graphics and sadly only 128Gb SSD + 1Tb HDD.I tried to get info everywhere i could and did not find any solution. So I'm asking if I can upgrade SSD without getting rid of Warranty (have 3y on-site). For second part, have anyone tried Lenovo Active pen 2 with this laptop? Or any other active pen (Wacom, etc.) The pen included is quite small so i will lost it in no time . Thank you all in advance

So recently I bought the Lenovo Active Pen (GX80K32882) off of Amazon, and it's been working fine. I decided to switch from the included pen because it was larger and gave more of a natural feeling. However, today when I pulled out the built-in pen, it didn't work. I've tried restarting and updating drivers to no avail. I'm not sure if it's because the charging pins were somehow bent and it's now out of battery, or because of some other hardware/software issue. Has anyone else had this issue and found a fix? Thanks!

Hello, I'd like to know if the Yoga 520 offers an active digitizer making the use of an active pen possible. Not a passive/capacitive one, but an ACTIVE one. I've recently bought a notebook which said it had support for active pens and ended up with a touchscreen instead which offers capacitive pen support only. I aim to use Staffpad with it so if I could be informed of it's compatibility with the app that'd be better.

Hello Lenovo Community!Note: I do realise that there have been many related threads but after hours of research I still feel a bit lost and confused... I?m about to purchase a new laptop and I decided to go for another ThinkPad. The Yoga series seems like a nice and portable alternative for my current laptop + Wacom tablet setting.

The 12?s seem to be a safe choice as they have built-in pen slots, however they are also a little bit too small for my artistic needs. My dream TPY is at least 14? and has dedicated graphics and I?ve actually seen them around. The problem is that they don?t have a pen included I don?t know how to check if they work with digitizers. If I understand correctly, digitizer support is an option for 14?/15? models, so:How to check if a particular TPY supports the digitizer?

Hi I bought a Yoga 900s yesterday and so far I like it. I bought the active pen and it arrived today. However there is no documentation on how to connect it. I've tried with Bluetooth, I clicked and held both buttons on the pen, and nothing works. I read on a different model that if the laptop says it has 10 point pen and touch that it would not support a pen. I can't belive that to be accurate. This is a $1300 device and the pen says it is compatible with this model. Anyone out there that can shed light on this for me?

Answer:Cannot connect active pen to Yoga 900s

I just discovered I was sold a 900 and was told and it was labeled as a 900s. Now I know why I can't connect this pen, it doesn't work with the 900. But I'm trying to decide if the i7 and 16GB of RAM is worth the lack of using a pen. I've tried a plan stylus with it and cannot use it either. I need something to use as a pen though. Very frustrating that Best Buy did this.

Dear Lenovo Community after hours of installing drivers and trying different configurations and calibrations of my pen I have concluded to write a post. My Problem is rather strange. The laptop I have came with an Active Pen. When I hover my pen across the screen, it detects the pen and I see the little mouse cursor under it. However, randomly, whenever I hover anywhere below 2/3rds of the screen, the cursor suddenly jumps upward 7cm and moves left and right on a streight horizontal according to how I move my pen on the bottom screen. When I remove the pen from the screen and return back to it, the problem vanishes, however occours soon after again. Since I cant use the laptop and flick my hand upward every 20 seconds to get rid of the problem temporarily, does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do? The product number of my laptop is 20DNS02H00. Thank you,Chris

Hey Guys I'm rather confused about the pen support for the new Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15. I've read quite a bit about it and find the information quite inconsistent. Some say it does support active pen some say it will in april and some say it doesn't. What I would like to know:A.) What kind of pen technology does the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15 support atm?B.) Are there any changes in sight? / When? / What changes?C.) Can I write on it while resting my hand on the screen aka has it palm rejection?D.) How good is it for note taking? Can it keep up with my writing speed? Links to videos where I can actually see it being used / tested would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15 Active Pen

From what I know there isn't too much information out so far. But here's what I found out. First off, the current Thinkpad Yoga 14 and 15 don't support pen digitizers at all, and will not in the future.Secondly, the Toshiba Encore 2 Write apparently uses the same technology. See this thread. Here's what I know:- It's called Wacom "Active ES" as in Active Electro Static.- It's battery powered. Unlike Wacom's older technology, you need a battery in the pen.- Palm rejection is more of a driver thing and not the technology. So it works, basically.- People say it feels "different", not sure if that means better or worse.- Precision is apparently very good, perhaps even better than the older tech without battery.- Pen lag (speed) doesn't seem to be an issue. Might even be better than the older technology. Other than that I personally couldn't find any information about whatever will be built into the Thinkpad Yoga 14 and 15 Only that they call it "Active Pen" and that it will be out in April. Also that the displays will support something called "anypen" which basically means you can use any pen-shaped metal object to write on the display. But that isn't really of any interest to me because I want pressure sensitivity.

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.

Are you, like me, starting to get annoyed with the active pen not responding. Then when you go to the wacom driver settings you get the error message "The Tablet driver is not running". Forcing you to restart the machine or the service? This is a normal problem that pisses a lot of users of wacom products in general. And i found this happens alot, specially if you have several wacom products like i have a Cintiq connected to my X1 yoga.  Well surprisingly there is a really easy fix for this.  It's windows 10 stopping the service after it wakes up from sleep. To fix it just tell windows to try harder to keep it running. ? Run "services" and find the wacom services. The service you looking for on a X1 Yoga is Wacom ISD service or/and the Wacom Professional Service if you have an additional wacom device like the Cintiq connected.Right click the service and go to properties.Go to the tab recovery and set the optional fail response on first and second failure to "restart the service".there is also someone reporting that they have to set their startup type to manual. But for me it works fine in automatic. Here is a video from ma'boy MichaelLawLtd that explains how, i give him all credit for this solution:  I set it to restart on second and third attempt and have never had an issue since.

Pretty much just as the description says. Im not sure what the problem is. When I try to download the feeldriver from Wacom it says "a supported tablet was not found" or something like that. And calling Lenovo support was the most infuriating waste of 4 hours of my life as no one seemed to know anything about it. I know the pen is compatable to the latpop. Its the only one that is. So if anyone can help me find out why the driver says that when I download it and why the pen isn't being recognized i'd love you forever. Seriously.

Answer:Thinkpad yoga 14 Flickering Screen and Active Pen

Hi
 
I have a TP Yoga 14, it is similar but it is different model (20DM008UUS).
 
I also have the Intel HD 5500 and NVidia 940M, also on 1920 x 1080 with Windows 10 and I have flickering on the screen.
 
Do you want to give it a try updating the drivers of the Intel HD 5500 and NVidia 940M?
 
Maybe you already know that you can download the driver of your model here, but I will like to also share my tips for updating the drivers.
 
1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches
2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.
3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"
4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers.

Just picked up a new Thinkpad Yoga. Definitely thrilled by the specifications, it seems to be the perfect laptop for me combining dedicated graphics, 2 in 1 capability, and most importantly, a wacom pen. However, upon getting it home, I find the pen doesn't work whatsoever. Curious, I went back to Best Buy and tried the pen on the display model. That one doesn't work either.Do these have some sort of widespread issue with the digitizer pens not working? Is there any known fix for this?

Hello, I hope anyone can help me here. I did'nt found an answer so far for my problem. I bought the lenovo thinkpad yoga 14 two days ago. In the shop they had only the thinkpad yoga 12, which had a pen inside the yoga (right corner). They showed me this notebook. Later I ordered the thinkpad yoga 14 in the internet. There were a few versions, one was with a active pen. I thought this is the same like the yoga 12 with the pen in the right corner. But this is wrong. The pen is much bigger and you have a pen holder for these big pen. You can't put this in the right corner of the yoga 14. Ok that was'nt what I want, but ok. My problem now is that I don't know how this pen works. It doesn't work and I can't find a solution for that problem. Are there any drivers which I have to install?

Pretty much just as the description says. Im not sure what the problem is. When I try to download the feeldriver from Wacom it says "a supported tablet was not found" or something like that. And calling Lenovo support was the most infuriating waste of 4 hours of my life as no one seemed to know anything about it. I know the pen is compatable to the latpop. Its the only one that is. So if anyone can help me find out why the driver says that when I download it and why the pen isn't being recognized i'd love you forever. Seriously.

Hi, can someone confirm that all Yoga 720 models work with a Lenovo Active Pen? The only model that's sold with a pen is $600 more expensive than the next most expensive model (with basically the same spec minus the pen). Given that a pen isn't anywhere near $600, it gives me concern that the rest of the models (without an included pen) won't work with a pen that could be purchased separately. Thanks.

Just bought a new Lenovo Yoga 920 and have started getting issues when using the stylus that came with the computer. It randomly becomes unresponsive to the touch screen; the button still opens windows ink workspace when clicked but when I touch the screen with the tip of the stylus it does nothing. I can use the touch screen just fine with my finger but it just doesn't seem to work with the pen. Assuming maybe the tip of the stylus needs replaced? Any one with any experience on this issue would be greatly appreciated! ** also it does come back on eventually, just very random when it does. Thanks!!

Hello,I just bought my lenovo yoga 720 not long ago along with the active pen and its not working as it should. The pen is a little lag-ish. Like....I can draw only on the one side of the pen, when i turn the pen around it doesn't draw anymore. I tried to replace the nib, but it was the same as before.So I was wondering if some of you also had this issue. Is there a way to solve it? Is it the pen's or laotop's fault? Thanks for any advice!

My brand new Yoga 720 is seriously bent (one corner is up by 3 mms). I have sent back immediately to offical Lenovo service. They sent it back with a report that it is fully operable. Since then, I have a wedge in my notebook case and all I have to do is put it under my notebook if I use it. Now I know which brand not to buy next time.

Hello folks, so far I really like the Yoga 720 but I have this really strange problem when I'm drawing on the screen.

I've had my yoga for 3 days now and have noticed that the Touchpad does not disable when in tablet mode. There must be some remedy to this as it makes tablet mode fairly useless since holding the tablet moves the mouse when you inevitably touch the Touchpad. This appears to happen with the 11s model as well (http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/Yoga-11s-Touchpad-in-Tablet-Mode/m-p/1168... and the driver mentioned as a fix does not resolve my issue.

Answer:Thinkpad Yoga S1 - Touchpad active in tablet mode

The moderator comment is misplaced - this is the only message I've left on this forum. You've moderated my comment or deleted a duplicate but have not provided any response to my actual problem. As I type this, I'm actually becoming pretty frustrated by the fact you'd take time to school me in the ways of forum ettiquette and not provide any actual customer service.At more than $1,200, this Thinkpad Yoga's inconsistent auto-screen rotation, ever-changing touch screen calibration settings, incredibly hot case temperature while installing Photoshop and The Banner Saga, and of course, the Touchpad remaining active in tablet mode is resulting in my returning this computer. I love the weight and the keyboard, but these pros don't outweigh the cons (especially when added to Windows 8.1's inability to properly scale menus for an FHD 12.5 screen). I'll try again on Lenovo's next edition of this line.

I recently got a Yoga 2 Pro. The screen goes blank after just a few minutes of keyboard or mouse inactivity, but the monitor stays active and lit up. I have tweaked all of the power settings, including telling it to never turn off the monitor when plugged in. I do work where I have to monitor things and need to be able to just glance up and get current information without touching the computer. It immediately comes back on if you touch a key or the mouse, but it's still aggravating to have to constantly remember to do something to keep the picture displayed. What am I missing? I've gone into the advanced power management and tweaked things but nothing seems to help. This does not sound like the "black screen" issue many people have had since it comes immediately back on. Thanks for any help.

Question: Active X Issue

So I just bought this new computer...a Dell with Windows 10 on it. The purpose of buying the computer was because it came with dual monitors so that I can work from home and just connect in to the office.

Well, it will NOT let me install the software needed in order to connect remotely to my computer at home. I can't figure it out. Settings checked, Active X Enable appropriate boxes marked. New browsers installed to try to figure out the issue. Restarted, etc., etc.

I keep getting a message from my job says, "this browser does not support activex or Java..." and it will not allow me to connect. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure where the issue lies, so here's the situation. I have a user with a MacBook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.3. I want her to start using her domain account, so I followed the usual steps for adding the computer to the domain. Everything went as expected, except I wasn't given the prompt at login to log in as another user. It only showed her local account.

So I found that I needed to check the box to create a mobile user. Upon doing so, I am now greeted with the Other option. However, when I put in her domain\user and password, it isn't accepted. It acts like her password is wrong. However, I am able to log in to our webmail and verify that it is the correct password. Her account isn't locked out, either.

So, I'm thinking it is one of two things. Either her wireless isn't connecting prior to log in, or the system won't allow the domain account because her local account username is the same, call it jsmith as an example. The laptop doesn't have a wired network jack, so I am thinking the USB dock doesn't connect the network until after login is completed.

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Active Directory & OSX issue

Just as in Windows you can have a local and domain account of the same name. That much I've experienced when I had my MBP. Grab a thunderbolt -> Ethernet adapter to test your first idea?

The company I work for just upgraded our domain controller from Windows 2000 to 2003. After the upgrade two of our Active Directory Security Groups have been having the members cleared out on a nightly basis. Every morning I have to go in and add the users to the SG and it is getting annoying, especially to those who have to wait for me or IT to add the users back in.

I am not in IT and and didn't want to have to deal with this but because it has been about 2 weeks I figure I would see if i can figure it out.

Other info:
-I am a domain admin
-IT does not remember setting anything up to clear this out.
-We plan on upgrading the domain controller to 2008 soon but who knows when that will happen. We hope that will fix this.

Hello everyone,

See attachment.

The .htt file isn't at the specified location. I can't find it on my own PC either.

Hi All,

My application is a window toolbar, which calls other web applications. The other web applications communicate with each other thru my toolbar. We are using .NET remoting, using custom active x java scripts for the same. In IE8 for some reason the communication between my tool bar and the other application is not happening.

On running Internet Explorer Compatibility Tool Kit, it shows active X being blocked (Error Type 1026) and has suggested to enable the download of Signed and unsigned active x control. But this solution is not of any success I have turned the compatibility mode on and also Protected mode off. I have also modified nearly all the settings in IE8. The iexplore.EXE is called by passing -noMerge in its argument to get the unique process ids. I have alse changed the Group policy settings.

One of the interesting observation is that in IE6 (where the application works perfectly) I see my dll in the add-ons where as in IE8 I dont see the same. Is any of them is facing the same issue? Any ideas are welcome as I am struggling in this for the past 1 week

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum.. I apologize if this is the incorrect forum, but it seems to be the right one.

Okay, running under Windows Vista SP2 (x64), my CPU idle spikes from 0% to 2%, sometimes even as high as 5% -- no big deal.

Different story for W7: the fourth core of my processor is always active. It seems to be 8-80% (30% average, I guess) all the time.. my total idle usage is around 12-20%, all the time. This cannot be healthy for my system.

This happens with a fresh install of W7, granted I installed it a month ago, it still persists. I figured it would go away, but it hasn't. The activity hasn't gotten worse or better, it has stayed the same.

I cannot narrow down what is causing the issue. It's evident that it's the OS, as Vista doesn't do it, and it occurred after a fresh install.

Task manager doesn't report any irregularities, all is well. The only active "process" is System Idle Process..

If someone could help me with this issue, I would be very appreciative.

Hi All,

I have just noticed a very strange thing within our company active dir, we
have Windows 2000 AD and I have just had a need to search for a user from
within Active Directory Users and Computers, and change the user details.

The user is listed in the results pane of the window. The strange
thing is when I right click on that user (or any other user or computer) I
no longer see the Properties option at the bottom of the associated actions
that I can take with this user account and the rename option is the default
option where as properties used to be so if I double click the user it opens
the rename window and not the properties window.

If I manually drill down in to the OU's and find the user (or any user or computer) and then right click I get all the usual options including the properties option which is the default, so it would appear that this only happens within the find window !

Any ideas how to get my properties back as we have a lot of users etc and it
is really a pain to drill down everytime I need to do something with a user
or computer.

Cheers
 

Answer:Active Directory - Strange Issue - Help !

I have been investigating this problem some more and it would seem that the
"properties" option does appear when you right click a user, but only after
a few minutes ! So if you search on Jones the names are listed but the
"properties" option is not there, leave the find window open and wait 2 or 3
minutes and right click again the properties option is there and then you
can do as many searches as you like without a problem, you can even close
the console, re-open the console and search as much as you like without a
problem.

The problem only occurs again when you actually log off the server, when you
log in and search again you must wait that 2 or 3 minutes.

Does anybody know why this is happening, it's as if it is off verifying your
credentials or something ?

Cheers

This is probably a simple problem, but I know little more about the computer than how to turn it on and navigate to a website or a program. I have saved a website in favorites that shows the Universal Coordinated Time, UTC. http://www.time.gov/timezone.cgi?UTC/s/0/java Because of some work that was done to my computer recently, this website no longer works. At the bottom of the page, I get an error message that says, "Internet Explorer has blocked this website from installing an Active X control." And a clickable button to "Install." When I click "Install," I get a box asking me if I want this to make changes to my computer and I tell it to do so. But then I get another error box that says, "Windows has blocked this website because it can't verify the publisher." And then it lists the name of the website as www.time.gov, which I find interesting. Why doesn't the government verify that they publish the website? But enough of that. Is there a way to get Windows to go ahead and let the website run like it's supposed to do? If there is a solution, please give me very basic step-by-step instructions.

Hi,

Firstly I'm not particularly tech savvy but I'll try to explain the issue.

I have a Dell XPS L511Z running Windows 7 with Intel Core i5-2450M.

The issue I am having is that sometimes the computer seems to take me out of what ever window I am currently using. It does not open up another window or minimise the current window but acts as if it is no longer the active window. For example if I am using Open Office Writer and am typing it will simply beep at my as if I no longer have the window selected and I will have to manually click into the window to be able to type again.

As far as I can tell it does not follow a particular pattern nor does it matter which program I am using. The only programs where it does not seem to occur are games. Also I have noticed that when watching any videos on fullscreen, part way through the bottom taskbar will become visible and I have to click into the window again to make it go away.
I apologise if this is confusing as it's quite hard to describe the problem.

Attached are also two screenshots of when the issue occurred whilst typing this message. (Issue_Before - is whilst typing this message, Issue_After is when the window is no longer active. You can see that the yellow line around the text box is no longer there and the top bar by the tab changes in tone slightly)

If you need more info just let me know.

P.S. Also I am unsure when this started to occur exactly.
 

Answer:Unusual issue regarding active windows

Hi all,

i'm having an issue with Firefox 13.0.1. When I'm on a page it will randomly be "clicked out of" or become the inactive window. I have to then click on something on the page for the Firefox browser to become active again. It gets really annoying, and I'm not clicking anything outside Firefox, it's doing it by itself. I have checked my plugins and there is nothing unusual there. I scanned my PC with malwarebytes, and it found nothing.

Anyone have any idea? It just started yesterday.

thanks

Hey Everyone
Lately I've Got to an Issue in AD Joining Section. I Have a Network of 120 Windows Servers, 2016, 2012 & 2008.

This Servers are Connected Through a Cisco Router with DMVPN Tunneling.
i wanted to join them to my AD Server in my Core. from this 120, almost 110 of them joined with no problem but 10 of them, does not joined. the error is because when you authenticate as administrator of the domain, then you have to wait for joining message
but it look a long time & it gives me an error : "The Following Error Occurred Attempting to Join The Domain. The Specific Server Cannot Perform The Requested Operation"
but the point is : -servers connection to core are not slow    - they can ping the server's IP    -they can ping the Server's Name
but still it took a long time & at last it won't join the domain
can anyone help ?

Hi Guys,

I am using Windows 7 64 bit Service Pack 1 and Internet Explorer Version 10.0.9200.16540 and I am having trouble with installing an Active X control.

I looked at my browser security settings (and everything appears to be OK), disabled my pop-up blocker... but I still can't install this active X control, when I go to this link...

NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products

All I am getting is "Initializing/Installing Component" but nothing else... no dialog box in yellow at the bottom of my browser window that prompts me to download and install the control.

Also... when I go into "Manage Add-Ons"... and go to "All Add-ons" I don't see that this control is even installed.

I need this active X control installed so that I can have Nvidia scan my motherboard driver and determine if it is the most current version.

If anyone can help me with this problem, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hey there,

It looks like you're not the only one. I couldn't get it either (using IE10 on Win8).
Could be a problem with the website.

Hello,

I have a Win2k AD domain and I'm currently experiencing the 5788 and 5789 events regarding netlogon on one of my member servers. Here is the detail

5788
"Attempt to update HOST Service Principal Names (SPNs) of the computer object in Active Directory failed"

5789
"Attempt to update DNS Host Name of the computer object in Active Directory failed"

"Access is Denied" is the specific error reported within each.

The primary DNS suffix is correct and I'm logged onto this server with an account that has full local and domain admin privileges. Has anyone out there experienced anything like this before?

Hello,

First time post, apologises if I don't include all the relevant information you require first time.

Essentially my problem is this - At a random time period the active window I have open, either clicking or typing in will lose focus despite no interaction from myself to do so, but in the Windows task bar it still shows as the presently active window.

I've already run a full anti-viral and anti-malware/root kit check before submitting this topic, I've made sure that Windows is up to date along with drivers for attached devices. It is becoming quite a nuisance now as I use this machine for writing and gaming.

Any advice you could render would be appreciated.

Answer:Random active window focusing issue

Hi MrTiger and welcome to Seven Forums.

So what your saying is the window that you have open will lose focus basically?

Did you do any updates or installs recently?

Hello,

I am having an issue with Internet Explorer 11. I noticed a few weeks ago that when I use IE 11 that I keep having to click on the window to keep it active, even if I have no other windows open. If I open IE 11 window and start typing a login somewhere I get 4 or 5 characters typed in then window goes inactive and I have to click back in the text box to finish typing my login. If I am browsing I sometimes have to click back on the window somewhere to continue scrolling on a page.

This is getting annoying so I would like to find out a fix if possible. I do have Firefox and Chrome that DO NOT have the same problem. I use different browsers for different tasks and would like to resolve this if anyone can help.

Thanks so much.

Server 2003 Enterprise R2 SP2, fully updated.

I've done as much research as my eyes can handle, and I've got my server set up. Now, when I create a user account, everything seems to work fine.
But when I set up a user with Admin rights, the user cannot write to the shares on the server, despite setting permissions accordingly. Even after I've just said "hell with it" and added the user to every group in the system. No writing. Reading is fine though.
While I was logged in to the server as local Administrator...

On step two, where I had blithely added my UserId to every group in the system, I then went to each "root" folder that was shared, and added myself to the users of the folder, then granted myself Full Control.

Under Security tab, my name/UserID is listed, with all check boxes filled in for full control.

I log out of local Admin, and log in as me - ON the server - and still no write access. I can read and copy all I want, but no writing to that shared folder.

Then I tried by logging in to another system connected to the server, same thing. No writing. Should I use the Sharing tab -> Permissions button instead? Or both? Or is it something else that's stopping it?

This is the only thing holding me up, really.

So, basically whenever I go to click on a background window/application on the task bar, it won't come to the front, instead the button on the task bar flashes at me, and the window stays in the background, sometimes a restart fixes this, sometimes not, I found a few old threads about this on windows XP, but nothing for 7, only way I can switch windows at the moment is Alt+Tab and clicking the specific window command bar. Attached PC specs and program list...any help would be appreciated, it's just getting really annoying. Thanks.

Hi I wonder if someone can help.. Apologies but I typed this out a second ago and lost it, so it might be a bit shorter !Basically I cannot access my work network, when I start I get so far then it logs me out. It used to work several months ago before I completed some updates and ran a registry cleaner.1) My initial thoughts were that it was the registry cleaner being too aggresive however I do not get any DLL errors ?2) My next thought was that it might be firewall related as I get so far then it just boots me out, but I have tried turning them off and it makes no difference.3) My next thought was that it related to the Windows Updates, and tried to re install the Windows Installer and backup the DLLCACHE, then reinstall JAVA. But this didnt work.This was the fixclick Start, and then click Run in the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK at the command prompt type:attrib -r -s -h "%Windir%\system32\dllcache"this remove the Read Only, System and Hidden flags At the command prompt, change directory by typing: cd %WINDIR%\system32\dllcache now type the following lines, pressing ENTER after each line:ren msi.dll msi.oldren msiexec.exe msiexec.oldren msihnd.dll msihnd.oldthis renames and thus disables the Installer Service backup files Shutdown and restart your PC update the Windows Installer files to the click here4) My next thought is maybe its something related to Active X, as it pops up at the top but dissapears before I can install it.

I'm setting up a network for training classes I run at my work and have hit a snag. I'm using laptops running Win 2k pro with built-in wireless and a Linksys wireless router that's physically plugged into a Win 2k Advanced Server box that's running Active Directory, and a Novell Netware box that's the Groupwise post office. When I set up the first laptop I was able to log on to the network just fine. Now I've finished imaging all the laptops and configuring the MAC address list on the router.

The problem is that I can't log onto the domain with the laptops anymore. The best I can do is log on using a cached account that was used before when it seemed to be working fine. When I try to log on with a different account I've been getting a "domain can't be found" error. Of course now when I go to check it again it logged on normally after having made no changes. This of course makes me a little nervous since I can't just hope it works when I need it to. The last unsuccesful attempt was made a good hour after the last change made to any configuration.

Signal strength is beautiful (better be, the laptop's only about 5 feet away from the router), and once I logged on with the cached accounts communication between the laptop and the 2 other boxes was just fine.

What should I be looking for here? I know it'll be shots in the dark since it's working now, but does anyone know about common causes for this.

Answer:Wireless network / Active directory issue

I've run into this before. The way I fixed it was to statically assign the IP information to each wireless box. It seems like your wireless card isn't initializing fast enough to get the DHCP stuff in time for AD authentication. You can reboot and give it 5 minutes to see when it connects. I just listened for the sound effect it made. Also make sure your software is set to connect automatically if you have that option.

Hi everybody, We have an issue with one R61 user, we use the fingerprint software provided by Lenovo, we have changed user's password via the Domain console, so the user can log on with this new password, but he can't use his fingerprint to log on. When he tries, the user must provide a password, but if he tries the old and new password nothing work, he must use the Escape Key to go back to the Microsoft Authentication Windows and then he can use his new password ! How can we change this settings, is there any fix ? how can i bind the new password with the fingerprint ? Regards, NicolasJ

not sure if any/all of my inadequately exp'd surmissals of just what is ailing my laptop will be academic, other than my posting the my first ever run HIJACKTHIS Log. But my main concerns as referenced w/in title, is constant running of process "SPOOLSV.EXE" even though quarantined via "SecurityTaskManager" and I have no printer, due to constant 100% CPU relevance, I just DISABLED this service within admin tasks. Additionally, have been constantly plagued by everything onscreen slowly "shrinking" so as to become to small basically to read regardless of display,font,pixel,etc configuration...although I constantly have a "warning" message popping up when attempting to access w/in various "desktop" locations "unsafe ACTIVE X Agent found, access denied". Here's my report, anxiously awaiting my first advice...and I say that sincerely, I went from barely email literate to now virtual resident after spending last yr in VA hospital...and I just love "LEARNING' everyday.

AVG EMAIL SCANNER ISSUE - Active/Inactive

I've been having a problem with the AVG Internet Security 8.0 - Email Scanner becoming Active and then becoming Inactive, the solution to this problem for anyone else out there who maybe experiencing the same issue...
Open - "My Computer" (On Desktop or go to Start Menu)
then open "Hard Drive"(usually C
then open "Program Files"(Folder)
then open "AVG" (Folder)
then open 'AVG8" (Folder)
then "Double left click" the AVG Icon with "avgemc" underneath it...
this will appear to have done nothing at all - but this will infact reactivate the Email Scanner in AVG and it will then remain "Active"
Hope this helps anyone else out there who may be having the same problem.. regards Liz Tuck...
