Hi so recently my PC has been losing connection after a few min of startup, shows a "no internet, secured". I use an AMD PCI Controller, or an ethernet cable, no one have worked. I've tried updating my drivers though no attempt is successful, have been using things like driver easy or like your usual YouTube look up with no prevail. I could not be using it right or could be a whole diffrent problem.
i am trying to change the IE 10 cache using GPO by change CacheLimit registry-setting.
Even when exporting the registry file, and importing this file on another machine will not work with "Cachelimit"
This is my registry-key :
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\Cache\Content]
 = 40 MB Cache
When importing this in windows 8 and IE 10, the registry looks like this :

What is going wrong?

Hi, I would like to use my wireless adapter as a wifi hotspot to share the internet from my PC(connected to internet via ethernet cable) to my mobile devices but when i connect to the virtual wifi there is no internet. The only way I would be able to get internet on the virtual wifi is to change the Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) properties to "obtain an IP address automatically", however when I do that a device that is connected to the PC through LAN will not communicate with the PC. I hope someone can help me...
*the other device connected to the PC through LAN is a digital X-ray processing machine.
I got W10 (Education) installed on my T430s, pretty much without incident.  Installed all the drivers etc from the Lenovo site. The "blue" hotkeys all work as expected, except for Fn-F6.  It does nothing.  I've read reports of it producing an error pop-up and other odd responses, but I get no response at all. Same thing for the "black key". Suggestions? 
Listed under optional updates is: Surface Keyboard driver update released in February 2018 What's up with that?  It's a T510, not a Surface.  
Hello I'm LJ, I would like to know the different of using system preparation tool and directly capturing the image without performing the system preparation and generalization in capturing windows OS. We are planning to use volume licensing,
that is why we want it to setup everything in one computer and distribute the package in other computer without doing the setup again or customize again the settings.
Well I explain my problem, I was using my pc this morning and turn it off for breakfast, when I turn it on it says the following: Windows has not started because the following file is missing or damaged: windows root> \ system32 \ hal.dll.

Hello, recently i got another monitor. I was looking forward to test it, so i replaced the cables from my old monitor to the new one. When the screen turned on (using VDI) the new monitor was bright. I thought of a problem with the new monitor after playing a little with the monitor settings and PC setting but it wasn't it. As i placed back the cables to the older monitor, The screen was zoomed in a little bit and when the windows was suppost to load, the screen had a note saying "no signal" at it and just turned off. After some advices i found online such as un-pluging and re-plugging all cables and power from the PC, letting the PC to be turned off for couple miniutes, factory reset ( Honestly i thought this would work!) And bunch of other things, nothing seems to fix it and im desperate for help. The PC is brand new. A bit less then a year, and i was running it for 3 hours before this problem started. What can i do?
PC specs are:
Monitor: Six Core i5 8400 2.8Ghz Coffee Lake S1151 Tray
Antec A30 Silent 92mm Blue LED Fan
Gigabyte Z370P-D3GB (2x8G) Crucial Ballistix-Sport DDR4 2400Mhz RED CL16
ASUS Nvidia GeForce GTX1070 8G DUAL FAN

Hello,I am getting lots of Event 610 Smart Card Service when I insert the sim card.Smart Card Reader 'Microsoft UICC ISO Reader 1ec14ae0 0' rejected IOCTL TRANSMIT: The parameter is incorrect. If this error persists, your smart card or reader may not be functioning correctly.Command Header: 00 ca 7f 68 LTE seems to work, however I do seem to have issues with it: randomly it won't work when coming back from sleep, so I have to reboot to make it work. Can someone comment please?
Ok so before I say anything, yes I tried doing the whole rigamarole with the stupid audio driver or whatever. If anyone suggests I try reinstalling the sound drive I'll hunt them down like a filthy animal.So basically the audio isn't working. But heres the really weird thing- it stopped working after a long train ride, and it's happened before. I was just on break from college and I took the train home (about a 7 hour ride) and when I got home I found that the audio wasn't working. Then I came back after a day or so and it was working again. Now I'm back from break after an equally long train ride and the audio is broken again. This is the only computer I have and I'm a student so this is kind of urgent and I don't have a day and a half to wait for this to sort itself out. Anyway, do you guys have any theories? I'm actually losing my mind right now. 
Will the intel (Intel Core i7-7700HQ fit in a i7-6700HQ socket im getting a used laptop that has a I7-6700HQ in it right now and i have a Broken Laptop that has the I7-7700HQ and would love to put that cpu in it when i get it

Thank you very much
When I log into the CBC GEMs website (https://gem.cbc.ca/media/coroner/season-1/episode-0/38e815a-0101713d859) to watch a program, I get "We could not play the video you requested. Please ensure you have Flash installed. (Error #WT-13 ( This video file cannot be played. ))." I have Flash installed but I wonder if this may be a limitation of Windows 7?
Can anyone help?

I don't have a ton (more than 8) windows open at any time. The system just pauses for ~30-45 sec. I've had Windows Task Manager open and can see the cpu or memory is not maxing out. All the updates are taken for Windows. No error messages. Please let me know if you need any further information. It's driving me *crazy*!!
Thank you very much in advance for any help
I am looking for something that will monitor a page then notify me if it changes, even though the page/tab is not in focus.
I currently use "Pixel Change Detector" which is great, but it only works if the page/tab is in focus.

When running System Update on an X280, many background windows seem to flicker into and out of existence.  This includes when System Update is running in the background.  It causes issues when typing in other windows since the focus shifts to the background window.  Is there a way to make these windows not take the focus?  Is there a better way to report this as a bug? Thanks, Bill

Netflix has been working fine on my Yoga Book until last week or so. Now it constantly crashes immediately when I launch the application. The only message displayed is "Netflix has stopped" and the option of giving feedback.After first trying to uninstall and reinstall Netflix with the same result, I have now factory reset the tablet. Netflix still crashes. Anyone with the same problem, or even better, a solution to fix this?

Like many of you probably, I love my T61. I do need to upgrade because I teach online and use Java heavy programs. I'm wondering if people can suggest a more recent model that has the same or a similar keyboard. I don't have enough technical knowledge to upgrade my T61, although it's fun to read what people are doing here. Thanks so much
Hi Is it possible for the Lenovo technical support team to advise whether through a BIOS update could be possible to lift the ram limitation on the P51 and P71 which as per the technical specs sheet is 64GB, having looked and investigated through different sites and forums with owners of the previous ThinkPad version (P51 and P71) I couldn't find any information whether the P51 and P71 can take more than 64GB ram but recently I conducted the test myself and I bought 2 of the Samsung 32GB DDR4 SODIMM 2666 MHz Laptop Memory Module/Stick and installed them myself on my P51 and I can successfully confirmed that these new Samsung modules work perfectly on the P51, however I noticed that after installing them on the BIOS the total RAM reported is 64GB but when logging into the OS (Windows 10) I can see that the system is reporting 72GB installed (I had an 8GB module installed previously) and on the task manager shows also as well 72GB but only usable 64GB. This makes me to believe that is possible to have this ram limitation lifted on the P51 and P71 maybe through a BIOS update, and I mentioned this because looking at a BIOS update done on the latest P52 and P72, on this particular BIOS update as per shown below there was a fix on those models where a fix was applied to address an issue with memory capacity show incorrect. This is the full list of fixes on that update (the fix in mentioned is highlighted on bold)<1.10>UEFI: 1.10 / ECP: 1.09- (New) Added support...
