If anyone has any ideas. Please help!
Thanks;

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 have networked PCs before many times successfully, so this is not my first time trying to network PCs in a home environment. Though I?m wondering if Windows 8.1 is part of the problem. I would have thought that for sure, until one of the new laptops running W8.1 would not connect to any of the other three PCs/Laptops running W8.1. Yet these other three W8.1 PCs/Laptops CAN connect to this laptop. Then it gets a little more interesting: this same laptop that couldn?t connect to those three W8.1 PCs/Laptops, CAN connect to a Windows 7 desktop, and a XP Laptop, and those two can also connect back to it without issue. It?s almost like my network is divided in half, and only half can talk to each other. But then when I thought it couldn?t get any more interesting, I realized the first three W8.1 PCs/Laptops can talk to the others, it?s just that the others (W8.1 Laptop, W7 Desktop, XP Laptop) can?t talk back to them without getting the error, "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password? even though the username and password are 100% correct.

I don?t fully understand this error, because on the surface, it?s just WRONG! My username and password are correct, but it appears something somewhere is interfering or hijacking the authentication process. Three of the computers (laptops) are brand new, just purchased last week and setup this week. The HostPC is also fairly new, just purchased last month.

A:"Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password” even with correct credentials

I experienced a similar problem when I was trying to network my 8.1 machine the host network. As you say the host PC can see and connect to all of the machines, but not the other way around. Not sure if it is the same in your situation but I found that Microsoft's idea of network sharing on the Windows 8 class of OS differs greatly from previous OS's in that you can connect to it from an external host, but when trying to do the other way around it doesn't "see" the PC in question due to differing network sharing protocols included in the OS.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I am speaking only from what happened with my network.

Hello, I have a Lenovo 11e chromebook.I am trying to figure out the Auto Update Expiration for it.  Normally, I can get this from https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=enIf you look through there, you can see there are a few mentions of Lenovo 11e with different date based on it's generation.  How can I figure out its generation?Lenovo.com's warranty lookup says its model number is 20DU0003US and its warranty expired 2015-09-04.  I have not been able to use that infromation to look this up.  I have been looking at listings on Lenovo's site and Amazon for the various 11e's trying to compare them to what my model has: "Intel Celeron N2930 processor (1.83GHz)
4.0GB RAM
Google Chrome
11.6in 1366x768
Integrated HD Graphics
Bluetooth 4.0
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2X2 AC
4 Cell Lithium-Ion" I have not been able to find matches for any generation.  It seems sorta close to 1st gen, but it is not the same.Any help would be appricated.  Thank you.

Hi there, I have a couple N22 Chromebook devices where it says that the Camera is not detected and to check the connection.  I have tried power washing, resetting settings and also looked at the connection and it seems to be connected.  I know I sent a couple in last year for this same issue, but now they are of warranty, so I am wondering if anyone else can help me out with this.  Thanks in advance.

Hi, I just purchased my Lenovo N22-20 Chromebook from Amazon. However, I am having problems getting into Recovery Mode using the instructions published here https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1080595?hl=en-GB&source=genius-rts. When I press and hold esc + refresh, then press the power button (for about half a second)- it immediately shutsdown my chromebook, it doesn't go into recovery mode. I tried this sequence with the chromebook off and it does nothing. I tried the sequence before and after logging in too.  I also tried esc + refresh on it's own as some posts suggested just those two keys. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a different set of keystrokes that need to be used with a Lenovo N22-20? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Has any one out in ChromebookLand been able to use the acclaimed system to show picture full screen from sets of jpg files? Due to the puny memory capacity, and difficult to work with external SD card slot, I tried to connect a Sandisk Media drive. The Media drive connects very well, but the display operations of pictures is just not professional.  The keystrokes are quasi not functional or not present.  When giving the show, I need to waste time explaing the customer what to do, and the 'slides' are not full screen, but small.  The colors ARE GREAT, but that is about it. As an aisde, any one ever wonder why the letters are in lower case????  My 5 year old asked me.

Just something that we as a schoolboard found out about these devices, is that they use a magnet to sense when the lid is closed.  This issue that this causes is that if you have the devices stacked on top of each other that the magnet from the device below will stop the top one from turning on.  Some of our techs had them stacked while they were trying to enroll a large number of devices.  This is just an FYI.

Umm... Hello? Is this thing on? Okay, here it goes. I wanted to share my experiences so far with my new Lenovo C330 Chromebook. Let me start off first by saying, this is my first Chromebook. Previously, I had been using 64-bit Intel Core laptops that I ended up wiping Windows off of and installing some flavor of Linux or another. I am a one-click, out-of-the-box type of user, so distros such as Ubuntu and EndlessOS did me just right. As for the Lenovo Chromebook C330, I love it. Although the touch screen display isn't as sensitive as other touch screen displays I've used (it doesn't take too kindly to a capacitative stylus, the ones with the rubber nib, unless you press hard which means I guess I will just be using my finger after all *sigh*), and the SD card sticks way too far out of the slot, I can get used to these things.

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

My daughter's Chromebook has a dark screen.  It's like the lamp has been disconnected.  The machine is booting.  We have tried holding the power and restart key, to do a reset.  Still dark. I have held the power key down for two minutes.  Still dark. I have tried hitting the alt + brighten and darken keys.  Nothing. Hopefully they will honor the warranty or Walmart will take it back.   We've had it for about a month and it is still in warranty, according to the website.

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.

A few weeks ago, my Chromebook began spontaneously powering down. I originally thought this was due to low battery, but after a few days I couldn't log on at all, even when battery was fully charged, or machine was plugged into the AC. Would get the password prompt and be able to enter the password okay, but then the machine would lock. Cursor still worked, but nothing responded, not even the onscreen "Shut Off" button. Only way to turn off the machine was to close lid or use the keyboard power button. Is there any way to fix this, or is this machine now dead? Thank you!
