My wife does pop3 email with Yahoo on her computer using SeaMonkey for the email and every few days she will tell me she cant get her messages. It will say "unable to connect to server" I have checked all the settings and they are correct. We both have Sbcglobal.net accounts that we had when we were with AT&T and were able to keep them. I don't have any problem accessing my mail online. What is strange is that I found if I log on to her email online then her POP3 email starts downloading again, what's up with that?

Hi forum, This has been an issue since I bought the laptop (about 2 months ago). Problem:- All online games I play (Overwatch, League of Legends, etc) consistently stutter despite having high FPS (120) and Low Ping (52ms). It feels like micro lag spikes all the time or maybe input lag. What i tried:- Updating all drivers and bios.- Disabling the pen and touchscreen stuff.- Optimizing Nvidia, Intel and laptop power settings. Would appreciate any help even if its not a verified solution. This is frustating. Thanks, Kira

Hello,Laptop which is facing the problem, is Lenovo Z500.Windows 10.A problem that is known, but I can not deal with it.I installed 5 different drivers for the integrated graphics card, changed the parameter in the register FeatureTestControl parameter to FFFF, I installed various energy management. I changed the HD4000 driver to the basic one from Microsoft.Nothing helps - when clicking the dash / dimming, a bar appears, which moves as it should, but the screen is still the same dark.As I enter the settings -> screen, and there I set the slider, strange things happen, the screen goes self-darkening, dims itself, literally as if the laptop had a light intensity sensor ..The BIOS can be used to light up the screen, it shines as it should, it does not get dark, etc. The matrix is okay.Anyone have any suggestions on what you can do here?Actually, for me, brightness can be 100% all the time, but the way with FFFF in the registry does not help.

I'm trying to buy a new charger for my laptop- SpectreXT touchsmart 15-4011 nr, but I keep finding 15-4010 nr. Will that work? I found one that matches but it's twice as expensive so if I can I'd rather go less pricey. I also found one that says it's compatable with both which made me think maybe it's the same thing but a different year or something.

I'd also like a recommendation on where to buy computer/tablet parts online if you have any suggestions?

Thankyou!

Hi, my ~2 year old battery's full capacity in a Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB has been dropped from 52500mWh to below 22000mWh by the time I noticed it yesterday. In less than 24 hours since I noticed this it lost another ~2%! Other than the ridiculous capacity it works fine, I can't observe rapid discharge, sudden drops, or insufficient recharge. That's why it wasn't obvious to notice this. What can I do? In BIOS, or anywhere else? I couldn't find any process for e.g. calibration in Lenovo Vantage (like it was written in previous posts related to its predecessor the Onekey Optimizer). I'm shocked at the extent of the wear...I also installed Lenovo Diagnostics, but it failed:Final Result Code:W3AEB1WLT8RU-PTXSRBResult Code:WBA0000100001-RN8WME Resource type:BatteryIndex:0Name:PABAS0241231Chemistry:Lithium-ionManufacturer:LGSerial number:41167Design voltage:11.418 VoltsFull charge capacity:21240 mWh (1860 mAh)Design capacity:52500 mWh (4598 mAh)Driver version:10.0.16299.15 11/20/2018 2:01:38 PM - Battery Health TestFailed (0s)?11/20/2018 2:01:38 PM - Message: Relative capacity: 0.40457111/20/2018 2:01:38 PM - Error: Your battery has a lower then expected relative capacity. Pls help. 
Hello!I have Lenovo Yoga 520 14IKB (Model name 81C8). I can not say when and how, but my fan stopped working. When the laptop is turned on, the fan does not work. With a high load, it also does not work. Tell me, the value of the fan connection pins (GND / +VDC / Sence / Control)?Thanks!
I have a 900-13ISK runing Windows 10 version 1803. About 2 weeks (?) ago, the Dolby settings window started opening every time I boot the computer. I can't find any setting in the Dolby program itself to disable this, and I can't find anything in Windows. Anyone have any suggestions? I don't mind Dolby running, but I don't want to have to close that window every time I start the comptuer. Thanks.
Hi all, Does anyone know whether the keys for the X1 Yoga 2nd Gen are the same kind for the 3rd Gen? I have checked the photos of both keyboards, and they seem to be the same however the part numbers for the keyboard for X1 yoga 2nd and 3rd Gen, have different numbers, might be only the connectors different but could be also the button itself. Does anyone know definitively? Thanks

Hello,
We have a problem at one of our new locations with the Edge Browser when using SSL Forward Proxy (Palo Alto Firewall).
The problem is as following: When we activate the SSL Forward Proxy, the Edge browser takes very long and sometimes even disconnects when trying to open a normal webpage over TLSv2. Chrome, Mozilla & Internet explorer are OK. Certificates are also trusted
and there are no GPO rules for the Edge browser.
I made a packet capture and noticed following: The server key exchange packet comes in, and then the client takes a long time to respond with the client key exchange (~10seconds). So there seems to be a problem there.

I know that this is not a network forum, but did any of you have the same problem with the Edge Browser? Or anything similar?
Sorry for my bad english..
Thanks and regards

Hi.I just bought V130-15IKB Laptop (type 81HN00EURI) for my mom. I want to upgrade the RAM as the 4 GB soldered might not be enough.I would like to add an aditional 4 GB so the system can work in dual channel mode. To do this I know I must buy an (almost) identical SODIMM.The problem is I don't know for sure what are the specifications of the soldered RAM.On the site on which I bought the RAM it says 4 GB DDR4, 2133 MHz frequency.However doing "lshw -C memory" in Ubuntu says something a bit different (at least regarding frequency):*-memory

Hello,

I seem to be having a bit of trouble with my USB ports. I am usually on my computer most days and at least once (sometimes two or three times) in the space of an hour or two the USBs will all disconnect for around 5 seconds and then reconnect. I use a USB WiFi adaptor for my internet so this is quite inconvenient when online gaming. I have two USB 3.0 ports on the top of my tower and around 4 USB 2.0 ports at the back, all of them are affect by this.

Does anyone have any idea's what might be causing this. Could this be a failing motherboard? I've had the motherboard for quite a few years now so this is my number one suspect but would appreciate some other peoples opinions before taking the step to buy a new one.

Many thanks for any help in advance.

EDIT: P.S. Apologies if this was posted in the incorrect section. I posted it here as I was wondering if there's any software settings within Windows 10 that could be causing this also. Mods - feel free to move this thread to the correct section if need be. Thanks.

Hi guys, During my purchase process the sales representative confirmed to me that using 2x DP to dual DP dongles the M720t could support 4 monitors. Now that the machine arrived I am only able to use 3 monitors. Chat again with another sales representative who told me cannot support 4 monitors. I enabled the IGD in the BIOS but no Multi-monitor support option. If I add a graphic card will I be able to use 4 monitors? Thanks!

Hi, after many hours of trying fix this laptop for gaming purposes I finally found the solution(s).Problem 1: Gaming starts with good framerate but suddenly lowers and stays low Explanation: The cpu has a power limit of 28 watts during the first few minutes of gaming, this gives good framerates. After time has passes and tempetures are rising to ~70 degrees (which is safe), the bios decides to cut the power to the cpu to 7 watts which is too low for gaming. Solution: Download throttlestop, this app allows you to take control over the cpu.First, undervolt, this will reduce your tempetures and improve fps, I currently have my CPU core/cache at -90mvAt this point you'll experience better fps but still lagSecondly, turn this setting on, you are going to need to install an additional file for this to work, this setting keep the cpu at 28 watts during sustained loads. (this will cause the laptop to run warmer ~80C on cpu). Please monitor tempetures with an app like HWinfo64. May void warranty.Gaming should be a lot better, but can be improved. Lets configure the GPU First, download MSI afterburner, this program allows you to configure your GPU.Secondly, undervolt the GPU, this reduces tempetures and keeps performance up. There are many guides online on how to do this, google "Laptop gtx 1050 undervolt".Thirdly change the driver options, see this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSVPZ9ON7zA&t=1s Problem 2: Keyboard feels laggy during gaming&nb...

I have an odd problem were the G700 takes 1 to 20 minutes to post/boot. 1.  Turn the G700 on.2.  The camera light goes on.3.  There is some fan noise.4.  Wait 1 to 20 minutes5.  Windows boot sequence kicks in.6. G700 runs as normal. I have booted to the usb UFEI and ran 5 hours of tests without issue.  Note it took about 10 minutes for the G700 to post/boot to USB drive. Booting to UFEi has the same issue.  Windows shutdown is fast.  No errors in the boot logs. I did perform a software reset to optimized default in bios but that did not solve the issue.  Attempted to reflash the bios, but there is only one version of the bios available and I did not figure out how to force a reflash over the same version.  Is there a way to had reset the bios via a pin? Any other thoughts on a resolution to this?
