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 ordered the HDR / 16GB / 1TB model on March 6, 2018 with expedited shipping. The shipping estimate is 3 weeks (March 28) at time of checkout. But I noticed the shipping time has decreased to 5-7 business days on Lenovo's website since March 9. Does this mean my order will get shipped sooner? However, the estimated shipping on my order detail page still shows March 28. Thank you!

Hi I need some help.

I have a log that lists the start date and end date of my fleet of cars. I want to be able to tell how many cars we had in our fleet on any day (and then be able to average out the number of vehicles in a month)

What I have is two columns with the first containing the start date of the car and the second containing the termination date of the car.

Example

Code:

21/04/2006 20/04/2010
21/04/2006 20/04/2010
27/04/2006 26/04/2010
28/04/2006 27/04/2010
1/05/2006 28/04/2010
3/05/2006 29/04/2010
3/05/2006 30/04/2010
12/05/2006 11/05/2010
17/05/2006 1/05/2010

On another sheet I have dates starting 1/1/2003 incrementing by a day up to 2013. What I am looking for is a way to count how many times each of the dates falls between (or on) the date in each of the ranges.
EG in the example data above 5/5/2006 = 7, 6/5/2006 = 7, ..., 12/5/2006 = 8. (I hope! )

Note - I am using dates in the format DD/MM/YYYY

Hope you can help!

I bought a ThinkPad. I received the computer two weeks ago. The computer is really good. It was a lot lighter than my previous ThinkPad, but the computer suddenly blacked out yesterday morning, and then I couldn?t turn it on. I called a few calls and couldn?t stand the long waiting. So I walk in an official after-sales depot, after testing, the technician said that my motherboard is broken and need to change, which I really can not accept! I only bought it for two weeks with the highest configurations. So I chose to replace a new computer. After playing a lot of calls, the customer service told me that I still need to wait for an email. I am a phd student. I need this computer to process experimental data and write a thesis every day. I want to know that this computer change program is to send a new computer and then I will send the old computer back? Or do I need to send my computer to Lenovo and wait for two weeks or more to receive my new computer? I just want to know how long I have to wait to receive my new computer. If I need to wait two weeks, I think this is a fatal blow to my current work. Really, I regretted buying this notebook.

This is multi-part question on how to create different formulas on the attached worksheet.

#1 - I would like to count the number of Start Dates IF the Start Date is blank or greater than today, but only IF there is a date in the Requisition Date column. This would be to indicate the total number of open positions as of today.

#2 - I would like to count the number of cells in column A that are greater than or equal to 17 IF the Start Date is blank or greater than today, but only IF there is a date in the Requisition Date column. This would indicate total number of open positions that have a grade lever of 17 or above.

i need to Count how many cells in col(O) display a "Y" between dates in col(C)

at the moment i use countif but this just counts all the "Y"'s

Excel 2007

each row displays many columns of data

the counting takes place on another sheet in the book as the data sheet cant be edited

each job entry is not necessarily in the correct date order as they are listed per job number col(A)

so i would like a formula to look at each date, access whether it falls between the given dates, and report back how many entries within the dates is marked with a "Y"
 

A:Counting criteria dependant on dates

Hi, since I have absolutely no idea of what you have my suggestion may not work but maybe you could add an extra column that, based on a formula that checks a specifi dat that could be entered in let's zay Z1 puts a 1 in all cells in a column next to column C where the date should be counted for and then count all "Y' where that column = 1 ?

No version of Excel, no idea of the further lay-out, so it's just a blind suggestion... hope you can do something with it.

Greetings,I purchased a Lenovo Yoga 900 in late December 2015 from their website. I immediately registered it on Lenovo.com using the "detect my serial number" feature. Overall it served well for 4 months. Then it did not turn on, or respond to charging. I then contacted the company to conduct a repair. Here's just how bad it is: 1. Self detect of serial number incorrectly identified the machine as something else (later to be determined a thinkpad, not ideapad product -- nowhere anywhere on the Yoga 900 does it say what it is).2. I submitted a service ticket using the only Serial Number that I had registered with the account with explicit notice that the SN was incorrect. They sent me a mailer in a day. This was 19 May 2016 3. On May 25t (day 6) I tried to contact the company. This was not particularly easy. A nice person was on the phone and stated that they had no idea where my laptop was.4. May 31st. Called again and was transferred around. Still no idea where laptop was. After about 1.5 hours on the phone a nice woman located it for me. Wrong city--apparently it's at the Thinkpad shop, not the Ideapad shop...Again, Lenovo sent me a shipping ticket and a box, so I had no idea this was incorrect. I received a telephone number and a case ID from this helpful person, with an indication that on June 3rd, the computer would be diagnosed (it was memorial weekend). Also that my case was flagged as "variance" to their statistics for return time for service....5. June 3-8... Read more

A:Yoga 900 dead -- 4 weeks and counting

I have this problem too, and this is my second Yoga 900 with "dead" issues!  Except, the first time it occurred, I was able to get a replacement becuase it "died" within one month of the date of purchase.  Boy, am I regretting this now!! So far, my issue is 2 weeks and counting, with no call back from Lenovo.  The last time that I called (yesterday, on 6/16/16) they told me that someone would be coming out to service me, but that they were awaiting a "mother board"....????? Red flags all over the place.  I empathize with you and have just contaced CNET,  and also plan on making a bit of noise at home office  (my colleage's spouse knows a few big wigs at Lenovo).  I'm truely sorry that you are experiencing this as well chrisheider.  Please post with your ongoing status, this is a nightmare!!!!

May 31st started my problem. At first I noticed that when I googled something my searches ended up going to somewhere else. Then I noticed that all of my programs in the start menu dissapeared, i tried to clean my system by going to "Accessories" and "system tools" and "disk cleanup" but nothing is there anymore. I have downloaded and run numerous virus scans. Numerous viruses have been found and I eliminated them, but that never works as there is always something else that is hosing the system. I can not surf the internet, some programs are gone and this has been going on for what seems like an eternity. When I open a program, like a MS Word 2010 document then MS Word 2010 shows up again under "Programs", otherwise, nothing shows up.
I have run anti-virus programs now and nothing shows up, but the problms still exist. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

Don`t know for sure if this is the correct place to put this question just tell me where else

I have a problem with a batch file.
I made a file that renames files to the date when I log off.
But I also want to let it clean files that are older than a month.
I thought I was able to make it happen just take the month minus 1 and compare names.

Although seems I can`t do a minus one in batch, searched alot over the internet.
Does anyone know a different way so I can compare file names to delete old logs?

Small professional office, bought two 6305 Business desktops with three year NBD warranties. Power supply failed on one pc. Called it in for service. After 24 hours with no response called again, was told tech had been dispatched. Later that day received call from tech, he had just received the work order but could not address it - order called for a power supply and a system board, but the power supply was "not available".Three business days later site received the system board, still no power supply. Called HP, they confirmed power supply still not available. Requested a replacement pc since service is not possible. HP Service dept not authorized to replace pc, escalated call to Customer Relations, expect 2-4 business days before response. Have just been told that tech will be onsite to swap system board, without replacing power supply.No way for customer to speak with or send email to Customer Relations, they are strictly internal. Best part - HP Service tech says when he called CR to escalate, they left him on hold for over three hours. Would be greatly interested to hear from anyone at HP who can offer a tangible apology for this complete failure. Site has been without a pc for one week and have been told to expect nothing for another week. I have spent ten hours (and counting) chasing after HP reps, and I cannot bill the client for this time.

So I have a huge amount of data that are all projected visit dates that range over a course of future years. I want to pivot the data out so that I can relay back counts of Month/Year as needed to an individual text label. Everything I find online tells you how to pivot if you have data in a cell but not how to manipulate and work with dates in a cell instead.
Attached is my data.

I want to be able to use a pivot to tell me (for example) 'There are 68 visits occurring in January 2013 and those visits belong to site 1 (20 visits), site 21 (40 visits), and site 42 (8 visits)'. Or that it can tell me, for site 1, 20 visits occurring in January 2013 are for V2 (3), V5 (10), and V20 (7).

Any help is appreciated.

Using Excel 2007.
 

A:Excel 2007 pivot tables counting dates help needed

It looks like you don't have your table set up properly to get the pivot you're looking for. In order to do what you want, you have to have a column for Visit# and you would list your visit number there. Get rid of all of the other Visit columns. Then you have another column for date. Keep your columns for patient number and site number. Then you can create the pivot you want.

So basically, you want to convert all the visit columns (V2, V3, etc) to one column by patient and site, with the same patient listed many times in the same column.

The problem is, you want a pivot table that compares three values (three columns), Site, Visit#, and Date. But you have your dates separated across 52 different columns and that just won't work.

Can I please get some help with my order 4293378647 not shipping. I don't understand it. It was supposed to ship the same day but there has been ZERO movement. Customer service offered no assistance when I called. They simply said they'd reach out to someone and email me with the information which I suspect is just some runaround tactic they use when they don't want to work. I want REAL help. This is absurd. I ordered this laptop on August 7th and it was supposed to ship the same day. Instead it hasn't even moved. If I knew this was going to happen I would've bought it on ebay or amazon.

I ordered a Thinkpad OLED Yoga, 16GB ram and 1TB SSD, on 6/17/2016. This order has been delayed many times due to parts back order, first the drive, then the screen, at least that's what I'm told, but frankly I've lost respect for customer support as they cannot provide any concrete details about my order. The latest estimate indicates that it will ship 9/12/2016, almost 3 months after the order.  I do want this machine and I see others on this forum have recieved a similar configuration. So, what is the deal here? Is Lenovo the most incompetent company on earth? Why offer a configuration they cannot fullfill? The current shipping window for this configuration is 3 weeks.  Can anyone shed any light here? Thanks,Kevin

Hello everyone, I am pretty frustrated right now. I've only had the machine for two weeks and out of nowhere while I was doing an important report it just shut off and won't turn back on.  I tried holding power button and the reset button with no luck. When the AC adapter is plugged in, battery light shows green which is full charge. With AC in, the power button flashes 3 times when I press it and I hear two clicks from inside the laptop. With no AC, the power button sometimes quickly flashes after I press it and stays dead. Seems to be a hardware issue but hoping it isnt. Could someone maybe let me know anyway to fix this asap? Machine:X1 carbon 5th geni7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD Thanks a lot!

Hi I recently bought a ThinkPad P51 on the Lenovo online store in the UK, the shipping of this of the order experienced a few days delay going from the advertised 7 business days to 11 business days this due to a shortage on memory, luckily I didn't have to wait a long time for the order to be shipped as I could see it happened to some customers who bought the new P series back in May. However the factory from where these laptops are assembled LCFC (HEIFEI) ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY in China always seems to missed the latest collection time for the courier that Lenovo uses UPS, this is the second order where I have had the same problem, this factory tendered the shipment to UPS after the latest collection time causing a further one day delay to an already delayed shipment.  I don't understand why on such high end machines and considering the prices that customers are willing to pay why Lenovo doesn't offer a premium delivery service so customers can receive the shipment quicker, also I noticed now that the advertised shipping time for some models on the new P series is now showing on the Lenovo online store in the UK from 3-4 weeks probably because of some sort of shortage in parts I believe. Anyway, I just wanted to share with those thinking to buy any model of the P51 or P71 the current shipping situation and delays you may encounter.

All,
 
With the new year, we start a fresh discussion for members to share their order and fulfillment experiences.
 
We are retiring the 2015 thread.   Anyone having an active discussion there can find it here.
 
 
Here are some common points of frequent discussion:
 

How to get a system fast: Buy an in-stock standard configuration from Lenovo or a Lenovo Partner in your area. Customized systems take longer.
Avoid Credit Holds - ensure that BOTH your bill to and ship to addresses are listed with your CC bank before ordering
Lenovo will not bill your card until order ships - an authorization charge hold to check for available balance may show up when order is first placed.
Estimated ship dates are based on default lead time and can vary from what was displayed on website.
In the US and Canada, Lenovo utilizes UPS for new product shipments
Orders may ship before the Estimated Ship Date
Orders may enter through Alaska and pass through Louisville, KY before traveling on to final address
Cancellation requests may take up to 2 days to process
Requests to change configuration or other aspects of the order may require the order to be rebooked.
Lenovo does not accept payment via international credit cards, except AMEX.

We hope you enjoy your new ThinkPad system when it arrives!

A:ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2015 edition

Got mine yesterday. Its the Core i5 5300, 8GB/256SSD with the QHD display. Took about 2 weeks from the date of order. What a great machine. It fixes the big problem of the first X1 Carbon (crappy TN display) and the annoying gimmick of generation 2 (adaptive keyboard) and what I have now is pretty much the perfect laptop. The display could be a touch brighter for me, but it is sharp and glorious. I am extremely pleased.

I'm guessing we might be due a 2017 shipping dates thread now...  I ordered an X1 Carbon 2017/5th Gen (top spec except for i7-7500U & 512GB PCIe storage) in the UK on 24 Feb. The Digital River order status hadn't changed since then so I emailed customer services today, who said: "Unfortunately, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5G 20HR ordered is currently unavailable and, as a result, shipping has been delayed. Your new estimated shipping date is 31/03/17." Yet the delivery status on the UK Lenovo store still says "7 business days". It's not ideal for me as my X220 screen is failing, and may not last out another month. I think one or two people on here have received a new model X1C  - how long was it between order and delivery, and what model number do you have? TIA! Simon

Hi!I just got a new "X1 Carbon 5th Gen - Kabylake (Type 20HR, 20HQ)" and a "X1 Carbon Thunderbolt 3 Dock". I have an external screen connected to the dock and it works fine (VGA connection). I also have an other monitor with display (DP) connection that I want to use. But my computer can't find the other monitor, only the one with VGA connection. Is there any easy ways to fix this problem?Best regards

Before I send the machine back to Lenovo, thought I would try everything possible...
 
BSOD happens pretty much randomly, when I am copying files, or when I am browsing, or using Office.
 
I have run all the updates of Windows 7, and it still happens

A:BSOD on new (two weeks only) Carbon X1 running Windows 7

Only 305 Windows Update hotfixes installed.  Most systems with SP1 have 350-400 or more.  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.Out of 8 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD  (aka STOP or BugCheck) error codes.  The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case.  Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)- missing Windows Updates- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems- low-level driver problems- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html or http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html ).Please get a head start on the hardware diagnostics - they are located here:  http://www...

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

X1 Carbon 6th Gen - (Type 20KH, 20KG) Laptop (ThinkPad) on ThinkPad Pro Dock.  I have a secondary display (connected with DisplayPort).  When the battery is charging, the secondary display works properly.  As soon as the battery is fully charged (100%), the secondary display disconnects and goes black (no signal detected).  The power is still on the the display.  The only way to get the secondary display to reconnect is to unplug the power supply from the dock, then plug it in again.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Apologies if something similar has been posted, I just can't find the answer. We have a 5th Generation Thinkpad X1 Carbon connected to a Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 dock. At the moment the display is mirrored using a VGA cable to connect to the dock. What we would like instead is to connect the dock to 2 external monitors with separate content on each monitor and the laptop display blank. I just can't figure out if this is possible, what might be needed, and how! Any help greatly appreciated.

Lenovo - X1C7 - X1 Carbon 7th Generation 2019 -  Pre-Order Start and Delivery Dates? Hi there! I am in the market to update my X1 Carbon 1st Gen(!) to the current, upcoming X1 Carbon 7th Gen (X1C7). Obviously, the only available option currently (as of January 28, 2019) on Lenovo.com is the X1 Carbon 6th Gen.May I ask if anyone knows when pre-order will begin and when delivery will start please?I saw the initial press announcement at CES that "delivery is June 2019", though that is very broad and doesn't differentiate between pre-order start date and actual delivery date.Thank you in advance.

A:Lenovo - X1C7 - X1 Carbon 7th Generation 2019 - Pre-Order Start and Delivery Dates?

Typically, Lenovo puts the laptops up for sale when they're ready to ship. So probably late May or early June would be when you can pre-order one, with delivery in June as well. 
 
Hope that helps.

HI everyone, I have a question regarding SIM in x1 carbon. I am not very good with technology, so I don`t know if my x1 carbon has a working SIM slot. It has a slot for SIM card but when I put it on, it doesn`t respond anything, like `detecting` or something like that. My question is: does x1 Carbon (Model 20A8-S00600) has a working SIM card slot. If it does, how can I make it functional. If it doesn`t what do I need to do/buy to make it functional.  Thanks,Kushtrim

Hi and welcome, kushtrimYour laptop is "WWAN ready" only, i.e.has the SIM card holder, the SIM card reader and WWAN antennas installed. WWAN modem wasn't factory preinstalled, that's a cause you don't see anything once SIM card is installed.So, to use laptop WWAN capabilities, purchase and install WWAN modem - 3G or 3g/LTE.

Hello everybody, is there anybody that has upgraded his 3rd Gen X1 Carbon to a 1TB ssd? I'm running out of place and would like to have a bigger ssd and do not know which one I could use. I tried reading in the forums, but was not able to find out which SSD would work. Somehow NVMe is not supported, it has to be a PCIe SSD (I think), but I'm not too familiar with these things. I looked at the new Samsung SM961 1TB that is just coming out, would that be able to work?The specs are here: https://gzhls.at/blob/ldb/c/4/4/9/618ff48c1c0dc799c9442fd598fa06935527.pdf Any help would be deeply appreciated.Regards,Jochen
