X1Y3 issues mostly resolved with exchange

Q: X1Y3 issues mostly resolved with exchange

Just wanted to do a post about my experience with an exchange. Most people post about problems. I decided to post about my mostly positive experience. Moderators--feel free to move my post if its in the wrong forum section.

My 1st X1 yoga had an issue with a scratch on the screen and overheating and some other issues.
I called support on Saturday 7/7/18 about my issues. Support wanted to replace my keyboard, battery and fan. I did not like that idea due to how new my laptop was. They offered to escalate my case. This was on a Saturday and she said it will take 24-48 hours to escalate. On Monday 7/9/18 a escalation manager was already calling me. I explained my issue but she said she couldnt help. She was technical support escalation and could not help me with an exchange. She offered to transfer me to customer support. The customer support person said he would escalate my case and said someone would call me back within 24-48 hours. This was on Monday. The next day 7/10/18 I received and email saying I have been assigned a case manager and that i would receive a call within 1 business day. Next morning on 7/11/18 I got an email from Escalation Manager (Desiree) saying she knew that i was in the Pacific time zone and she would call me later. I had a packed day at work so i decided to call her her at 7am my time which was 10am her time. She answered the call by 2nd ring!! I explained my issues. She did not rush me. She offered to exchange my laptop. I said great. That afternoon on same day she already ordered a replacement laptop for me. 7/12/18 laptop was shipped and i got it on 7/17/18. Desiree was right on top of it. She called me on 7/18 Wednesday to confirm receipt and that i was happy. I recently got a new job and did not actually have a chance to even open box. I explained it she was very understanding. I told her i would look at it over the weekend. 1st thing Monday July 23rd she called again before I even called her to check up. Unfortuantely the replacement had a warped case. It wouldnt sit level plus it gave me errors on boot. Desiree arranged for another exchange. She ordered another replacement on 7/25/18. It was shipped on 7/26/18 and I got it on 8/2/18. This time I opened it that night to check for cosmetic issues and played with it over the weekend. New laptop is not warped only issue is the battery loss when turned off. Hopefully a BIOS can be released to fix it. Desiree was on top of it like she has been through the entire process. She did not call me right away since she knew about my new job and waited til Monday 8/6/18 to call to make sure I was happy. I was and I told her I would return the 2nd laptop by Thursday this week. She said if i need more time just tell her. It was so new i didnt install anything so i didnt need the extra time so I returned it this morning.

For those that have tolerated the long winded post. Although there were issues I was really impressed with Lenovo's response. Specifically Desiree. She was extremely polite, prompt and responsive. She was polite to deal with despite my issues. I give her 10 out of 5 stars if there was a rating system. On forums we normally only hear about problems so i really wanted to share my mostly positive experience. Only issue was the 1st replacement. That was not Desiree's fault.

Thanks Lenovo Thinkpad and Desiree!

Preferred Solution: X1Y3 issues mostly resolved with exchange

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 the X1Y3 20LD001HUS  and battery life is horrific.  Including in sleep, battery drops way too quick compared to X1Y1 and X1Y2 which I have.  Setting display brightness to less than half, just doing browsing and email, no video/audio or heavy processing (and always on usb id disabled), I lost at least 25% battery in an hour.  I've noticed the same with my T480s.  I've had numerous other models (T460s, T440s, T450s, T540p, etc.) and battery life in standby and moderate use was pretty good but these new ones I'm disappointed with.  Also the fingerprint reader is more problematic with the T480s and X1Y3 compared to previous gens.  The "can't read fingerprint" rate is much higher on the new models in my experience.  I keep my drivers updated on all models as well.  And always disable "always on usb" so that's not an issue.  I do prefer Chrome, but I've observed the same power loss when going to standby with no apps left open (and chrome/firefox background disabled).  Anyone figure this out?

I have the need to import data from a public exchange calendar folder into access. I can easily perform the task but the imported or linked data does not contain Start Time or End Time fields. It contains a whol bunch of useless fields like creation date etc.</p>

Export the folder as a CSV or other type of file, then import it into Excel or directly into Access (whichever works best). This tends to get the fields that don't always seem to come out.

I'm currently experiencing issues with an Exchange Account in Apple's Mail Application.

I want to change my display name from just my first name, to my full-name, via preferences > accounts > (my account) > full name. Now, I did only have my first name in the 'full name' section by default, however I've since changed it to my full name, however the change doesn't appear to have taken place, as when I send emails, my display name still only shows just my first name.

Any suggestions?

I have a 2K3 server set up and had installed Exchange 2007 beta, had it working, but started having problems with it.

I tried uninstalling 2007Beta, and had several issues doing it through the setup program - it told me there were still mailboxes, so I removed the mailboxes, then it told me I had to remove the public folders, so I did that, and tried the uninstall again, but now it is saying that exchange is in an unstable state, and can only be repaired by running "setup /disasterrecovery", so I tried that, and it won't run because I followed the instructions I found online to manually remove exchange 2003 (I know there's a version difference there, maybe that's why I am having so many problems.)

So I installed Exchange 2003 "on top of" 2007, and that seemed to go OK, but I was prompted that there is a known compatibility issue, and it gave me a link to download and install Exchange 2003 SP2, so I did that and the installation seems go have gone OK, but now I am having issues running the system manager.

Every time I run it, I end up having to reboot the server because it causes the machine to hang. I can't even open up task manager to shut down the process.

Any ideas?

Hello all,

Im the system admin for a company and we up until recently have been running exchange 2003 and the clients have been on XP pro sp3. We are a non profit org that helps misplaced youth and foster care. So needless to say we cannot afford a 85 new PC and new sever overhaul all at once. The issue I am having is I have ordered and installed 8 new client PCs running windows 7 pro 64bit. However we are still utilizing our same exchange 2003 server. As well as still using our same office 2003 pro licenses as I haven't ordered our 2010's yet. I have noticed the new desktops I have installed every user has complained that they are randomly getting kicked off of the exchange server in their outlook all at random times. One user needs her email so badly that I set back up her old 5 year old PC right next to her new one for when it happens. And NONE of the other old PC users are having these issues. This does happen everyday and I have tried to troubleshoot the issue but have came up with nothing. The ONLY thing that I thought it could be was our new PCs are 64bit and I DO believe that the mail server is running 32bit I am not for sure but am going to remote in and look after I write this. But even if that is true would it just randomly kick the users off? IM not sure I do know when it DOES happen you can tell by looking in the bottom right hand corner of outlook where it normally says online it will say "trying to connect" or if you try to send an email it will stat...

My company is running Exchange server 5.5 and it seems that whenever our employees try to email specific customers, the message either fails completely or they get partial messages. I talked with the Network admin at the customers company and they say that it is only with us that this issue occurs. We have only 3 customers that this happens to and the rest work fine. Our exchange server is pretty much all defaults and they seem to be universal values, nothing fancy. Any suggestions?

A:Exchange server issues!

What do the addresses that fail have in common? Are they web mail cusomers, do they use Lotus Notes or CC Mail? I would check you Internet Mail Connector and see if it is set up correctly and also find out if Exchange is using the least cost route to send mail. We had a problem where the mail was taking too many hops before it's final destination and the mail would never reach the intended mail server. If you are using DNS to route mail make sure the remote host is registered on the DNS server or it will not go out.

Have a client with an exchange server... There's been several instances where the Email to some addresses have not gone through. Sometimes they go through, some times they don't. The main issues is that some instances the server tires to send the email for about a week before it sends out an email saying it couldn't be delivered. One case it took up to 2 weeks.

Shown below you can see it trying to send the email for 2 weeks and then finally it sends out a Non-Delivered Report.

Is there some setting to change it so it only tries to send for like 12-24 hours? Any ideas what to look for to see why these emails are failing? It's happened 7 times the last month, and to about 5 different email addresses.

Hi All

We have recently re-loaded windows at my work and ever since i have been unable to "sync" emails to my iPhone or iPad through exchange mail. This problem is only occuring on my devices when paired with my account. My account will work on new devices and other peoples accounts will work on my 2 devices.

Under my account in the exchange server we have removed both my devices, yet both devices are still appearing when I open my OWA account and they cannot be removed. Even pressing wipe device in OWA will not allow me to remove them. We have tried removing other peoples devices from their OWA and it works as expected.

We are at a loss. ANy ideas?

A:Exchange Server - OWA sync issues

What is Windows going on to? Server? Computer? What version of Office are you using on the main computer?

I get work emails on my iPhone and my work computer and via owa from home on another computer, and never had to "sync" any of those devices to get the same email on all three, why did they have to be Synced?

I am curious as to why this had to be done in the first place, also i have never seen any device showing in OWA only folders which i created and added via Outlook

Sorry I have not answered your question but your question has made me curious

A:MS exchange server issues over VPN line

Guys, the problem seemed to be with the Network and sharing Center
Select Network and Sharing Center > Change the users network to private via the ‘Customize’ option
Disconnect\reconnect to VPN

NB: The Private or Work network location options allow file & printer sharing and Network discovery (other users can see you). A Public location doesn't allow any of these features.

Also this will explain the irregularity of this problem as not all users would be affected.

I hope somone finds this information useful.

Yesterday something happened where my exchange server is now sending out roughly 100 packets a second across my network. This is saturating the rest of the network so that I cannot get online or access much of anything. I've rebooted the server in safe mode & the issue stops. I've also used AVG Anti-Virus & Microsoft AntiSpyware with no results.

I did have a program called syscfg16.exe or something like it running but I deleted that. This has not resolved my issue. Here is a hijackthis report showing what it running. Hopefully you guys can give me some advise as my next step

I get an error message that says: The action could not be completed. The connection the the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlok mus be online or connected to complete this action.

I contacted my support but they said it's working fine that they're able to connect to it via outlook and I can use webmail so it mus be someting wrong with my connection settings either through my firewall or router.

I disabled the firewall and it still didn't work... poked around in the router couldn't find anything to that would look like it would help.

I've been bothered by excessive heat from my X1 Yoga 3rd gen for a while. I am aware of https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-3rd-gen-CPU-frequency-pegged-at-max/m... and https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-3rd-gen-fan-noise/m-p/4048250 and sure, things got better after I applied the fix from the first thread and the BIOS upgrade from the last, so I was happy for a while. But I'm still wondering, is the X1Y3 supposed to be this hot? I tend to use my laptops in the sofa with the machine ... well, on top of my lap. And it feels like I'm having a small radiator there, not a computer. It's not burning my lap but it's definitely uncomfortable. Sometimes I have to put a magazine under to protect my thighs from the heat. And I'm not even doing anything demanding. It's just constantly somewhere between warm and hot, no matter the CPU load. Other premium laptops don't get this hot. My Dell at work doesn't even get warm at all and neither did my old Sony VAIO Z1. Is this machine meant to be uncomfortably hot? Are other Lenovo's hot too (this is my first Lenovo)? Could there be something wrong with my machine? Is it worth calling support or would a replacement machine be just as hot? It would be great to get some input from other X1Y3 users. I thought I could live with it but I'm getting increasingly annoyed.

A:X1Y3 too hot

I have one and I never have had a problem with heat.  I wrote a review on the machine when it was first being released and I ran stress testing with no problems.  I do not tend to use laptops on a sofa or a bed, but on a hard surface instead.  The air intakes are on the bottom and a soft surface will completely block the flow.

This is the strangest error I have ever had.

I have windows 95 installed on this box.
On IDE1 I have a 4 gig hardrive as primary, and a 36x CD-ROM as secondary.

This worked perfectly.

I got a hold of a 2 gig hardrive and set that to be IDE2 Primary.

Now the 4 gig is partioned into 2 logical drives C: and D:, and my cd-rom was previously my E:.

When I installed the new hard drive it became my new E:.

This would mean my CD-ROM would be F:

Now here is the kicker.

When I go to DOS/DOS Prompt I can access the CD-ROM by F:. When I check my CD-ROM under system properties it says F:, however it wont show up in Windows at all. Explorer, My Computer, any program that accesses the drive wont show that it's there, however if I type in F: it will read it.

If it interests you here is a screen shot to sum up my trouble: http://www.rhott.com/pingh/wtf.jpg

I got an X1Y3 with i7-8650U back in September and since then I have been experiencing exoradic, random input lag. Initially I thought that it was an issue with a driver or Windows 10 as the problem only reappeared a couple of times, so I thought an update had fixed the issue. However, for the last few days the problem has been occurring quite often. Regardless of the load on the CPU, everything on the screen freezes for 2-4 seconds intervals repeatedly. Input form trackpoint, touchpad, keyboard, USB mouse or touchscreen are delayed as well. This behavior is nor permanent and when the issue occurs it generally despair after 20 or so minutes. Last time it happened I opened Intel XTU (the chip is running with the factory profile) and there was not abnormal power consumption, temperature or processor speed being registered.Restarting the device doesn't change anything. Once logged-in and after a few minutes of light work, the issue appears. Has anybody experience something similar? any guidance here would be appreciated.

I got the X1Y3 recently, with the HDR WQHD screen.According to "Machine Info" on pcsupport.lenovo.com, I have a "Monitor: 14.0" WQHD", so it doesn't mention HDR.According to parts lookup on the same site, I have the "14QHD500,HD BZL,LBO+AUO,AES2" LCD assambly, which I guess is the 500 NITS panel. This brings me to the main issue of brightness - I was expecting to be blown away by the 500 NITS brightness...but it just seems like a regular panel and nothing is great/unique/ultra-bright about it, compared to Macbook Air 2015 or Lenovo T440 (2014!) that I own.Several options I can think of here: A) I may not actually have the right panel installedB) It's a software setting I need to tweak (turned off night mode, turned off auro-brightness), or a malfunction. C) It's a malfuntion on my 500 nits panel. D) It's advertised as 500nits but it's not really close to that. Brwosing through these pages I've seen tons of questions about the HDR abilities not fully supported by windows/INF/color-profiles, but I don't know if brightness is also affected by this. Any help will be apprecited!

Hey all, Just got my X1Y3 yesterday and loving it. Upon trying to take out the pen, I couldn't remove it with normal or slightly-higher-than-normal force. I didn't want to pull too hard at risk of damaging internals. Googled the issue, seems like others have had the issue in the past, with the resolution being unscrew the back and see if you can get the pen out that way, lo and behold, got the pen out and it worked without issue. Tried putting the pen back in through the side and can't get it out again. Upon inspection it looks like the internal latch is catching the lip right near the end of the pen. Contacted support and they said my computer was out of warranty (but I bought it last week and got it yesterday...). They're supposedly working to fix that right now, which they will then attempt to figure out my pen situation. I just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue before. Thanks!

Hello, I received an x1 yoga 3rd gen in september. However, approximately a month ago (maybe less), the battery became much worse, to the point where I charge my laptop to full, and it says I have under 3 hours of battery remaining. I read that right clicking the battery, going to power options, and restoring default settings can help. This sometimes helps, albeit temprorarily, and then it reverts to telling me that I have 3-4 hours left. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

Does anyone know why these people show 3-4 lines of being logged in. Its the same username listed 3 -4 times and when they log out all 3-4 disappear. Why?

I found it under Admininstrative Groups/ First Administrative Groups/Servers/Server Name/First Storage Group/Mailbox Store/Logins

We only have 1 mailbox per person so this 3-4 logins is strange to me.

Hi All,
(... TIA.).  I have the BlkSOD on my laptop before login and having tremendous difficulty solving/removing the problem/virus.  The only way to see anything is to plug in an external monitor and boot in safe mode.  Regular mode won't run and goes blank right after you see "Starting WIndows" (again, thru the ext monitor because the main monitor is totally black.) Fan starts when trying to boot in normal mode tho. 
Over the past 2 days -
I have tried Repair mode - no success, it doesn't find any problems.  According to my computer there are no restore points!! - Bollox as I've used them before. (I will add that whilst in repair mode, the command prompt from it shows X: not C: )
I've tried chkdsk /r and f but I get message of can' lock drive as its in use by another process... I've tried sfc scannow and no dice, write protected.  I recently did a general chkdsk and in one of the reports I noticed "56k in bad sector".
So, what programs have I tried? ComboFix, Zanema AntiMalware**, TDSSKiller, SuperSpyWare and nothing out of the ordinary, imo. **I will say that Zanema once found 'suspicious' items - about 3 or 4 of each, iexplorer and explorer exe files but not in the C:Windows folder (if mem serves they were buried in the local/app/temp ....ie  some hidden folder somewhere. The giveaway was that the info on those were date modified was back in '11 but date created said a few days ago when this all started.  I ran Zanema... Read more

I have just run into the same problem that others have had. It was on a explorer update load. Now the screen comes on when requesting explorer however nothing will process or no internet available. I have the Big Fix from e-machines and calling it into play gets me a message "WARNING Conflict with Internet Explorer 7" I also tried to reset to an alternate date back a few days then weeks but it will not take. This is not a new issue from what I have seen in other treads. I will try to uninstall this Explorer 7, but hav concerns over whether it will get me back to Explorer six.

There is enough of a hassel with this revision of Explorer that one might think that it should be removed as a revision until bugs have been cleared.

A:(RESOLVED)Explorer 7 issues

Just removed the version seven of Explorer and all seems normal.

Don't think I would recommend this rev.7 to a friend

I'm sure it has worked for some of you but just as sure it is creating havoc all over the place. When you read all the no, no's on this site imagine what the rest of the world is experiencing!

I've never really done anything with posting to threads but it seems like you all might be able to help me. I few days ago my homepage switched to about:blank whick for me is a search page of some sort. I get pop-ups all the time saying I have spyware on my computer. I downladed Spykiller thinking this would help but I don't think it is. I also get pop-ups randomly without having IE on which goes to a porn site which I've never seen before. I saw you want the Hijackthis data so here it is.

Actually, the scope of the problem for me seems to be any MSN or hotmail based websites. i can't load up any tech support from them either. The main problem is that I can't sign into MSN messenger and each attempt to go to hotmail.com is a failure due to timing out. It's been like this for 12 hours now. I know that this probably won't be read for another 48 hours but i will stay posted...because any reply on here will send me a notification at hotmail (which i no longer have access to).

Yesterday i reinstalled Windows XP Home and reformatted my harddrive. i don't know if that has anything to do with it but after the reinstallation everything worked out perfectly. It was very sudden the way that these things ceased to work...i didn't change any settings. Is there a way for you to help me?

ok, my browser wasnt set up properly.

i have everything working now. sorry and thanks.

My computer has been messing up alot recently.

Asus P4C800-E Deluxe
Intel P4 3.0HT
Sound Blaster Audigy2 Gamer
Segate 120gig HDD
PNY 6800 Ultra
Corsair 3200 DDR 400
Vortec PSU 600watt All voltages are good

O/S: Windows XP Professional SP1

Basicly the computer runs really slow, boot up times are very long and the overall performance isnt what it should be.
I flashed the BIOS with the newest version, still the same issues. All my drivers are up to date. Computers with hardware
half as good as mine performe better in games and in benchmark tests. The processor runs at 34C/93F. Anyone have any ideas
on what I should do? Im about to just junk this and buy some new stuff.

A:[resolved] Hardware issues

Slow computers are almost always malware. Download & Install Hijack This!, run a scan, save the logfile and then post a copy of it in the Securities Forum for an Expert to analyze.

Also, while you are waiting, download the most recent virus definitions for whatever AV software you are using and run a scan. A decent anti-spyware program such as Ad-Aware would also be a good idea.

Nice people of the forums. I submit my hijackthis log for your help. I have looked at the other posts and hopeully I am in the correct forum and also with some of the things that are possible to be changed with that program I tread lightly and ask for help with my specific case rather than trying to delete stuff on my own. I have noticed that i recieve a annoying popup when i am in ebay which is disturbing. I saw the savenow in the log and believe that is a canidate for delition . But again I know beg the sages for their wisdom. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
