Preferred Solution: Y70-70 lenovo Cannot activate Windows 8.1 in India...

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.)

I had given my Lenovo Y700 laptop (purchased outside India, less than one year old) for service at the Lenovo authorised service center. I was told that the motherboard needs to be replaced and now, I am informed that the part isn't available, even though there is India support for this laptop under warranty. I had checked this with Lenovo support representative over a call before giving it for service. The laptop is still within warranty period. This is an extremely ridiculous situation, and I don't understand why the part cannot be made available in India when there is warranty support? I am sorry to say this, but it does feel like a gimmick of some sort to lapse my benefits under the warranty period which expires in 30 days. I request urgent action be taken on this issue and measure be taken to make the motherboard available.

I had a spare Lenovo S10-3 laying around that was elibable for the free Windows 10 Home upgrade.  The upgrade went fine but I now have no wireless connections.  The hardware switch is in the correct position and I have tried new drivers and a new wireless card.  Fn+F5 does not bring up a control panel any longer.  Does anyone know what turning on WiFi from that panel actually did?  Does it change a properties setting or something else that I can get to another way. Does anyone know if a USB WiFi adapter will work in place of the internal one?

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hello, I am looking forward to buy a Hp 22es Display from Amazon.in. The seller is Cloudtail India. I have heard about warranty problems for hp products purchased online in India. Therefore I was doing some research before buying this product. That's when I found this hp customer advisory. It lists Cloudtail as an authorized hp vendor. But, not Cloudtail India, which is to the best of my knowledge is a sister concern of Cloudtail. So, my question is if I buy this product from Cloudtail India on Amazon.in, will my product be covered under 3 years warranty (it is wrongly described on the Amazon listing as 1 year warranty) from Hp India? Thanks is advance.

Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to connect my home PC back in India from here in USA. I tried net meeting, remote desktop connection, but i got errors.

Can some experts guide me how to do this. I think this will not be allowed as its something like hacking. I use a cable modem and router, while the internet connection in India is a dial up 56 kbps.

I read on internet that both the PCs must be on same network for netmeeting, etc to work, so how do i do that. Also is it true that the IP address given by ipconfig is not the actual IP address, i should somehow get the WAN ip address of both PC's. I do not know how to get that.

Guidance would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.
 

A:Connect my PC in India from US

When you are connected to a router your computer's IP address is a private address assigned by the router. For your public IP address look at the router's WAN status or go here: http://www.whatismyip.com/

To connect by Remote Desktop your India PC has to be configured properly; for XP Pro this just means set to allow RD. For other systems you need some third party software. And, of course, the PC has to be connected to the internet. You will probably not enjoy RD with dial-up, and unless it's a pretty decent dial-up it may be too slow to work at all. Good luck.

1. Open your Internet Explorer window.

Unless you know someone in the US who can order for you and ship, no - Dell won't ship internationally.
Even then, remember that the warranty applies to the country of purchase - you'll have to transfer ownership and warranty when you receive the system.

I would really like to find some way to automate my email access in order to get around the connection problems I have.

I work for a non-profit foundation and am currently based in rural India. The location where I am is only 50 miles from Bombay. Although Bombay is a huge city with sophisticated facilities, in my area the phone lines are awful. Electronic exchanges have constant problems, overhead lines get pulled down or felled by falling trees and underground cables are regularly dug up. Things get fixed according to who paid off the officials involved. Often the few working lines are overloaded and constantly busy. I attempt to access a major ISP (VSNL) in Bombay and thereby to connect to my company’s email server in New York to access email. It should be straightforward enough, but the lines cause several problems.

I have to run a Dial-Up Networking Script (.scp file) upon connecting to the ISP. Currently I use Outlook Express 5.0 (though I could switch to Outlook 2000 if there is any advantage). Because of the script (I think) when I click ‘Send & Receive’, the dialog box requires me manually to check ‘Save Password’ and ‘Send Automatically’ before proceeding. If the lines are busy I cannot set it to automatically retry later by checking for new messages at a preset interval because of the dialog box.

Another problem is that sometimes a connection is made to the ISP or to my company server but the quality of the line or something causes errors and Outlook ... Read more

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.
