Hi we use with great pleasure the Lenovo m93p as server in a our environment. They would like a charm. recently we faced a situtation and e wanted the servers to turn on at a specific time.  We went into BIOS and set the time to turn on the PVC.  We expected that the PC could be turned on manually. It will not turn on at all.  We took off the CMOS battery to see if it would reset the BIOS settings: Nothing ! The the PC will not turn on... Also no Lenovo screen , nothing  We must also say that we increased the video memory to 1024 MB AND set up the start time. These settings were saved since then the PC would not turn on.... Would appreciate anything that could help in having the pC turn on or resetting the BIOS to default ... Thanks in advance We need to perform somthing alittle more complex .. Will ask after solving this pesky problem Zeprez

Dear All,
As per organization policy, Software should be installed by IT team only so in order to implement this, We have disabled the Admin rights to all users, everything is working fine except the .net developers, they have to work VS and IIS and sql server services

IIS would work only when users are provided with Admin rights.

How can i resolve this situation without providing local admin / special privileges to developers. 

Thanks in advance,

Has anyone been able to bridge a sagemcom fast 3864ac router modem when using NBN?

I am thinking to get a router to expand home wifi range.
Hi all,

I want to revert back to the Windows 7 that my HP netbook came with but Win 10 seems to have disabled the factory restore function. I can see the Recovery partition and its files but pressing F11 when booting goes to a menu in which factory restore is disabled. The only "recovery" offered appears to be a reinstallation of Win 10. The upgrade to Win 10 was over a year ago so rolling back is not an option either.

If I can get hold of a copy of Win 7 is it likely that I will be able to do a fresh install of it and manually install all the drivers from the HP website? If I can obtain discs I will need to transfer the files onto a USB stick to install as the netbook does not have a DVD drive. It is an HP Pavilion dm1-4012au Entertainment Notebook PC.

Thanks for any advice.
My first quest is to find the right question. My second quest, which I think I can do on google, is how to do it. I teach in 21 different classrooms each week. I only have a few minutes to go and set up the computer, paper, etc in each classroom so I need to be efficient. I want the computer in each classroom to have a timer with a graphic that displays remaining time. I need to show the objective along the very top of the computer (we have these 72" tablet computers in each classroom) and the objective needs to move independently of other parts of the screen. About one fifth of the computer screen (occupying the whole screen from top to bottom) needs to display some info from a website from time to time. This is just a taste of what I need. I will be drawing on a few different sources for information and will need the space resized.

Can I accomplish this by customizing a win 7 desktop? Would making my own webpage (to be opened from the computer, not hosted online) be more useful? I am looking for a light shove in the right direction here, as well as some basic vocabulary that help me be independent.

Hello! In our company we are using Lenovo T470s laptops and we want to prepare a plan to deploy the fix for Spectre and Meltdown, I'm following the official Lenovo website and checking for updated information https://support.lenovo.com/dk/en/solutions/len-18282 Can anyone tell me what would be the best sproach to centrally patch all your clients?My first thought is to use SCCM, but maybe Lenovo already has some tool of it's own that we could utilize? Like the Lenovo System Update tool, coult it be an option? Can it be controlled via scripting?Please let me know your reccomendations? P.S.Does the T 470s have any safety feature for BIOS if remote BIOS flash would go wrong?
I have a thinkpad mini that I haven?t touched in year and I managed to load it up today and it loads up fine, however when i enter my password it just starts squealing.

Hi Tech Guys!

Looking to buy a new laptop that can host 2 operating systems: windows / Linux
some friend advise me to look at: HP 15-bc207TX
I never used a single machine with dual OSs before,
Any recommendations / comments about this?
have anyone tried using machine with Linux and windows?
how stable and efficient the machine's performance? or not a good idea to have 2 OSs installed?
The device will be used as a regular work station, fully use graphics and all other functions,
the whole job mainly done with Windows 7 or 10, then Linux to be used for learning, and practicing,
Kindly advise accordingly,
many thanks..
Recently got a new(used) W530 and have been putting it through its paces to ensure everything is functional before my return window is up.After battling through some issues I believe everything checks out and I just loaded Windows 10 and began configuring it for my setup.One thing that I just can't get working right is the "rapid charging" and Always On USB configuration.Here is my understanding to frame the issue (please correct me where I'm wrong):1) The W530 has a yellow USB port in the back that is supposed to be capable of "rapid charging"2) The W530 has the ability to be configured with "always on usb charging" if properly configured in the BIOS.So I've got the 2 settings in the BIOS enabled that should allow always on. Lenovo Vantage software also confirms this is enabled.And...things actually work. That is to say when my computer is in sleep, standby, or totally off.Additionally, when plugged into the yellow USB port my android phone shows as "rapid charge" on it's lock screen.The problem is when the computer is actually awake. The minute it leaves one of the standby/off modes the phone falls back to slow charging.I've played around with all the power management settings I could think of:- Disabled in devices "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"- In power plan disabled "selective suspend" on USB- In power plan disabled "link state power management"Nothing seems to make it charge faster when the computer is on.I'm concerned that the issue may be w...

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your splendid response to the latest Best of the Year Antivirus/Suite polls and Pro's & Con's review section of various antiviruses.

This thread will solely focus on how to configure various antivirus/suites for Best Protection in 2018.
Each week we could discuss about a new software so there's plenty of time to configure our systems

Few pointers:

If possible you can provide screenshots for the same. If you can record a video of it, it could be a lot easier! (There's no harm in just giving a text-based tutorial too)
You specifically don't need to know all the tweaks required for best protection, but if you know any, it could help others a lot.
If you think a tweak can cause degradation in performance you might also highlight it for reference.

Let's start alphabetically?

Hello everyone. I was hoping to find some help with an ongoing problem I've been having.

My computer freezes, mostly at random. It rarely goes 2 days without doing it, but it usually only happes once a day. I will be in the middle of something and it's like someone pulled the plug out of my keyboard and mouse. There's no noticeable performance changes or warnings of any kind before it happens. I know it's not just my peripherals because I usually log out of windows10 at night before bed and I've come back to see the computer froze at 2:34am. The screen doesn't go black or bsod. It just stops. It doesn't apper to matter what I'm doing at the time. It's happened using notepad++, playing a game, watching a movie, reading the news. If there's a trigger, I'm missing it entirely.

It's been happening for about a month now. It needs to end.

My Specs are:

Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit

AMD FX-8320 20 C
Vishera 32nm Technology

8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 803MHz (11-11-11-28)

AOL has new software version called AOL GOLD I was forced to install it today and I hate it already. Most of the user customization features are gone. You can no longer access desktop shortcuts made from Internet Explorer without opening AOL which is what I hate.

I've had AOL since 2002 and have always enjoyed it now I don't know what to do now AOL really sucks bad. If anyone can help resolve this please post.

Windows Media Player worked for a while on my Vista 2Core then stopped working. I listen to music a lot and like Media Player so this annoyed me a great deal. Finally I bit the bullet and upgraded to Windows 7 (Home Premium) and guess what -
"Windows Media Player Has Stopped Working" again, and Windows Media Center cannot play dvd's. I am
gobsmacked and $200 worse off. Windows 7 is supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread yet there is no fix or patch for the Media Center bug - everyone's complaining about this - just do a google search across the internet.
After hours searching I managed to find a link to email-assistance from Microsft,
with a $100 price tag! This is ridiculous.
Can someone please tell me what Microsoft are doing to remedy their worthless Windows 7/Vista Media Center? I run editions of Windows XP and the Media Player on XP has not failed me once,
not once!
Please advise, thank you.

Is there a way to permanently remove OneDrive and Cloud from my system, including all references to both from my registry?

In the absence of that, is there a third-party application that will for sure block all functions of both of them?

I recently spent about an hour editing out all references to OneDrive from my registry, at least all that Windows 10 would allow, and now they are all back.

ive been trying for about a week to get pdanet on my samsung galaxy s5 to connect to my xbox. right now it connects but im having double NAT issues, UPnP issues, and teredo issues. im at a loss for what im supposed to do. pdanet connects to my computer perfectly and im using its wifi share to connect to my xbox. i also have a packet loss of 100%. at first i tried connecting my computer to my linksys cisco e2500 router but even with internet connection sharing enabled i dont get anything. even the windows 10 hotspot shows no internet access is available when using pdanet as a source of internet. the only way ive been able to get anything is from wifi share but i believe its blocking some protocols or something i need for xbox multiplayer. any help will be appreciated.
I turned my laptop on today, and the battery is saying it is at 0% and that the cord is plugged in but not charging. It worked perfectly fine yesterday and I have never had this issue before. I took the cover off and unplugged the battery and then was able to run my computer without the battery plugged in. This was to be sure that the power cord was not the issue. I ran cmd prompt powercfg -energy to look at possible issues with the battery. Attached is the energy report. I am past my knowledge and I cannot find anymore information on the internet. Can someone review my report and advice how to fix the plugged in but not charging issue I am having?

So, I recently got a new Lenovo Flex 5 14" (touchscreen with Active Pen), but Photoshop is either way too big or way too small. I was reading posts from a few years ago where Adobe said they're "still working on it". How long can it possibly take to fix the scaling?! My laptop's resolution is 1920x1080. I've tried multiple other resolutions, but none of them work. I also tried other methods (creating manifest files, etc) but they didn't help either. Is anyone else have the same problem with high resolution laptops/computers in general?
I own a P50 laptop running Windows 10.  Since December 2017, I have started getting BSOD with orange color whenever I reboot my computer that says "Page Fault in Non Paged Area".  After the system supposedly collects error information, it takes me to normal windows login screen and from then on, it is smooth sailing, until I shut down and reboot the next time. I restored back to the time when the system was working fine...that didn't help.  I checked Windows update and Lenovo's system update software.  They both say that everything is updated. Can someone please help?  I am a little freaked out because I read this could be related to RAM hardware issue.  I sincerely hope it is not the case. I have also tried couple of solutions from googling like checking disk routine and clearing my registry.  Those didn't help either. Thoughts anyone?
It's just that I am severely deficient in Testo XR experience. Aren't you a Testo XR fan who has been trying to find Testo XR? I will show you how I was able to take a Testo XR conclusion and turn it into a Testo XR as soon as I don't know if it's insurable or not.

This is a common practice now. If you're ready to begin with Testo XR, then the next point you must know is Testo XR. It's simply that recently Testo XR has been taken to new levels. Testo XR is not all that complicated.

Hello there,

This is my first post here and I'm looking for some help. I currently have my PC connected to my TV and when I restart the computer for a fresh boot I sometimes get no display. To remedy the situation I have to hold the computer power button and physically restart. Sometimes I need to hold the power times 2-3 times before I get a bios and a bootup screen. My TV is fairly new, it is a Vizio P50-C1 and it has been great. My PC is 4 years old. Some quick specs are i5-4690k, gtx960, 16GB of RAM, one small SSD for Windows and multiple other hard drives from old systems.

I don't know if my display issue is video card related, PSU related, or possibly a bad HDMI cord. Actually I've tried different HDMI cords and inputs.

Can somebody let me know what the next step to text would be?
I see others have had this problem, but the classic ?hold the power button for 10 seconds? trick isn?t working. This has happened numerous times in the past and typically it just eventually turns back on, seemingly with no rhyme or reason behind it. This time, it has been well over an hour. It?s turned on twice, gotten to the lock screen, then turned off again & I cannot get it back on.  It is certainly not an issue of wear and tear-I use it minimally, however when I do use it, I really need it to actually work.  What is going on and how can I fix it??
