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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Not until transferred, which requires:
1.  That the model is sold by Dell in Hungary and
2.  That the system was upgraded at extra cost - or you upgrade it now - to an onsite service plan.

whether warranty of a envy laptop purchased in one country will be accepted by another country. For eg, warranty  of a  laptop bought in USA, can be claimed in Asia Pacific. whether the warranty is international for laptop

A:whether Laptop warranty is international or not

Its complicated:  For example, a product purchased in country "A" and moved to country "B" receives the current warranty coverage provided by country "B" (if that product is marketed or supported in country B). So it varies model to model and country to country

I was told , it was necessary to add "premium support" for international warranty.
I want someone can help me regarding my question.

A:International Warranty in Peru

In order to transfer the warranty:
1.  The system you buy MUST be sold in the market where you want to transfer the warranty.  If it's not, there is no support for it.  Make sure the system is listed for sale on the Dell Peru website.
2.  You must purchase an upgrade to an onsite service plan -- the basic 12-month depot repair warranty cannot be transferred internationally.

For business and consumer notebooks alike, I just had no idea where this question belongs. Reading this forum I have found that all your notebooks (consumer and business) carry some form of International Warranty, but your notion of internaional warranty is rather strage: I have to send back the notebook to the country of purchase. Which, in my books does not count as international warranty, it is called national warranty. Sure, you can send any product back to the country of purchase from any manufacturer, you don't need special warranty to that, you shouldn't call this International Warranty, it just confuses the customer. What's the deal here?

I live in Canada, but we have property in US & travel US every year. I have been researching, to find a way to get high speed internet at our remote property in US. AT & T service is the only service that reaches it.
My question: If I buy an iphone to get internet connection (for like 1 or 2 months a year), can I change servers in it, to be able to use the iphone in Canada? (we have Bell & Telus in our area)?

When I talk to one company or another, they only seem to be up to speed for the average customer who stays put.

I have noticed a new entry in my HJT log that I have not seen before. I suspect it is related to the most recent Microsoft update, in particular IE7, but I am not certain. Does anybody know what it is connected with? I just like to know what's on my computer. I hate surprises like this. I strongly doubt it is related to an infection as I have seen this particular entry on logs given the clean bill of health in the HJT forum and because all my scans come out clean which is why I didn't use the Am I Infected forum.

Here is the entry in question.

O11 - Options group: [INTERNATIONAL] International* Hi all, just wondering if anyone was familiar with this file?? the people who helped me with my HJT log a couple weeks ago said it was from IE7 and not to worry about it or delete it. However I read in a HJT log post that it should be deleted.

any help would be appreciated


A:O11 - Options Group: [international] International*

However I read in a HJT log post that it should be deleted.Was it at this site? If you have an 011 entry that means there is an added group to your Internet Options - Advanced choices. To see these open Internet Explorer and go to:Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tabThere are several groups of options listed there: Accessability, Browsing, etc. Apparently you have an extra group named International.According to Merijn (the creators of HiJackThis) there is only one known malware that adds an entry to this area (see THIS), however new forms of malware are created daily. And I can't check this against IE7 because that is not the version I have.

Hi, I purchased an Inspiron 1543 on Oct 27, 2015 from an authorized dell store at GIP Mall Noida and since then I have been strutggling with Dell Warranty team to update the warranty status under dell festive offers. They have updated only NBD warranty date to Oct 2018 sine I have purchased two years extended warranty, but all the other warranty dates are yet to be updated and they are not even replying my emails. The worst customer service I have ever seen. I will never recommend anytone to buy a dell product. I have provided everything they reqested already. My service tag #<ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy>. My contact # are<ADMIN NOTE: Phone number removed per privacy policy>. Can anyone help?

Hello. You have posted on the Laptop Audio discussion board. I suggest that you post on the Customer Care board.

I have purshased a lenovo y50 laptop on 19th March during my trip to USA then I returned Egypt back and discovered that the laptop is defected with dead area in the trackpad and a horrible display with very ugly yellow color.
I contacted Lenovo Egypt and they told me to go to service provider to get these issues fixed. The service provider said they will replace the trackpad but they see that the screen is normal and they have no solution for it.
Before I bougth it, I made sure that all waranty services can be done from Egypt but Lenovo Egypt refused to replace the laptop and the service provider refuses to fix the screen. It is really disappointing!!

I had sent my Y50-70 to Giat Solutions Service Center (Malaysia) to fix its screen. They found out that the part of the separator inside one of my USB port came out a little. But they decided it was CID (Customer Induced Damage). I recalled that the USB port was slightly tighter than the others when i first received it. I take a very good care of my laptop and i had not drop it once even after 1 year. The damage of the USB port looks nothing like those pictures Lenovo posted on their official website. I m very disappointed with the service since i paid a lot of money for that machine. If they cant fix the USB port for me, i can no longer trust the Lenovo Products. Please assist me.

I sent my Asus K52Je to the warranty service last month, for a HD issue.

When returned, the HD was strangely partitioned:

Now, the Disk 0 has:
- a first (hidden) and not recognized partition: a 336 GB (!) RECOVERY;
- C:\ is the 116 GB NTFS
- D:\ is the 13.6 GB NTFS.

Should I resize the RECOVERY partition without any problem??
And after that, could I extend the C:\ partition? (I don't want to lose my licence and prefer not to use the 9-DVD-recovery tool...)

thank you.

A:resizing Recovery partition after a warranty service

You will under no circumstances lose your Win7 license as long as you have a genuine Win7 COA sticker on the machine. You can reinstall this in any way you wish and MS will protect you, which is why they put the Product Key on the COA sticker - you should back it up now in case it rubs off.

In fact most tech enthusiasts prefer to get rid of the bloatware by Clean Reinstalling Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything needed is in the blue link. Asus may not support a Clean Reinstall but they cannot void your hardware warranty. I would simply not tell them if I reinstall. You'll get better support here anyway.

With such incompetent partitioning I wonder if Recovery will even run. Can you cue it up to see? I would also make the Recovery disks now so you have a backup if you want the preinstalled Win7. Another backup is to save a Win7 backup image of your customized install: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup. With these backups you may feel you can afford to delete the Recovery partition.

Either way you'll want to shrink it. I'd use Disk mgmt first to see how much it wants to shrink it. But you'll need to use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to safely Resize C to the left afterwards, which can also be used to shrink Recovery more if Disk Mgmt bumps into files in the way. You'll need to leave ample breathing room for Recovery to function. Partition Wizard Move/Resize Partition Video Help.

Personally I would rely on Recovery disks if i ever needed to fall back to factory condition to resell the unit. Otherwise I'd rely on a Win7 backup image of a factory install after I Clean Up Factory Bloatware, or for the very best performance I'd Clean Reinstall.

I have a HP ENVY m7-010dx that died last night.  Upon power up nothing happens except a continuous slow blinking light on the cap locks key.  I went through their online troubleshooting help section and it looks like it is a hardware issue and will be going in for warranty service.  The big problem I have is that the hard drive has lots of sensitive personal information on it that I believe a good tech could copy and fairly easily decipher.
So what can I do?  I have never removed an internal hard drive and accessed it as an external drive.  I really need to wipe all personal info before returning for warranty service.
Any ideas?

A:How to Secure Hard Drive Before Warranty Service

DVDs?  USB flash drive?
How much personal info are you talking about?
Since most of us don't have that much (IMO) personal info on a system...either of the above should do.  Simply copy the data to new media and then delete it from your hard drive before sending.

A:Out of patience with Dell's horrible warranty service

Tough luck. I've also have had more hardware issues than I can count, including trackpad failures, fan issues, lights burnt out, etc... I just continuously had stuff break on my $1400 laptop for no reason. 
After months of dealing with this ***, I decided I just wanted Dell to buy the laptop back from me or give me store credit as that's really the only repayment for the amount of stress and issues this laptop has brought me. I was basically told by the highest level sales manager that I cannot return the laptop and I just have to go the Dell's support system. There is really nothing you can do except constantly call in service requests and once your warranty expires, like me, you are pretty much screwed.
That being said, I will never buy any Dell product again.

When I went to buy a laptop, I have not considered any other laptop as I thought Dell would be perfect for me. However, let me tell you, it's not. Within the period of 1 month, I started getting touch pad issues which is not resolved completely yet. This is not ended here. I bought this laptop (which was the worst decision I have ever made) in October 2014 and this Dell dashboard shows my warranty expiring in July 2015. I am emailing to them and nobody even bothers to give a reply. On phone support I have asked several times that I want to extend my warranty, however nobody helped me for that too. Is this your SO CALLED superior customer service and quality product? If yes then please stop selling Dell Inspiron 3542 model. Pathetic touch pad!

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

Well, it's all in the subject; how come the ACER Aspire XC-705 desktop PC does not have indicator LED's? Like for HD and DVD drive. This is the very first DT computer I have owned since 1993 that doesn't. I'd bet the laptops/notebooks do. Either the rest of the PC industry is wrong in putting them on their desktop machines, or...well, I'm with them anyway. Sure, it's a novel concept but so would a car w/o speedometer or a camera w/o viewfinder. As it is, I have to rely on my hearing to know if there is activity on the HD or not, ditto the DVD drive. See what I mean, jelly bean?

As the title suggests - my invoice specifically says 3yrs warranty was purchased with my M3800 in November 2014. I'm now showing as out of warranty after 2yrs
I'm having issues with a screen that was replaced in May/June 2016 and would like a replacement as I believe the unit is faulty. Please can you get in touch to resolve.
Thank you.

With Pleasure

A:International Prices (SV & EN)

It is very likely the cost of doing business in Europe is higher than it is in the USA.  Consumer laws vary - and if memory serves, there is a minimum warranty length required in much of Europe that exceeds that in the USA.  That alone could explain the price difference.
Just about everything (automobiles, electronics, food, etc.) costs more in much of Western Europe than it does in the USA.

hello all,

I was wondering if one can connect wirelessly (or telephone line) internationally with any ol' laptop or is there a special specification for overseas connectivity. I was told all countries have the same connection of 802.11 or something like that...thanks.

A:International Internet Connectivity

802.11 exists overseas. Depending on where you are the country may run a wider channel range. So, it can be spotty.

POTS line (modem) works.

In many parts of Europe you can easily purchase a cheap GSM/UMTS/CCIT "cell" modem, and a disposable SIM card.

I've never heard of this mod, but are you playing it online? If so, then it may be because you are not running Steam, and the server has already updated to Steam.

since a week or so my keyboards behave differently. I've got an Acer laptop (5715Z) with a wireless Logitech keyboard (K350).
What's different is acctually the behavement of just one key, namely the '' and "" key. Before something (and I obviously don't know what) happened, if I tapped that key nothing happened until I hit another key. That way it was possible to directly put an accent on vowels. What happens now is that after tapping the key, immediatly this apppears ''...
Note that it's not a single apostrophe but a double. Same thing when I tap it together with <shift>: ""
I'd be glad if someone could help me out. I already checked if it was due to a stuck key (whatever key could cause such strange behaviour) but couldn''t find any...Someone else has the same problem? Maybe due to a windows update?


A:Keyboard behaves different (while it' still on USA (international) settings)

Let's isolate the problem. did you setup a keyboard shortcut? Does the internal laptop keyboard behave differently from the wireless? Does the external one do the same thing when hooked up to another computer? Also if you have another external keyboard, either wireless or otherwise, what does it do with the laptop.

Is there an international version of Microsoft Money that enables accounts in multiple currencies and can download statements from banks in more than one country? Or is there perhaps some customisation option that allows this?

If not, has anyone found a competitive product that does?

Little did I know when I purchased Money shortly before departing the UK it would be useless anywhere else!

Hey guys, I've had this problem for a long time now and even though I got a bit used to it, it's still very, very annoying... I couldn't find anything similar on Google, forums, etc, so I really hope someone here can help me.
I'm using the US International keyboard layout, but it doubles all things which you use to type accents, like an apostrophe, or ". This means that when I type an apostrophe, then hit space, then type an e, I get: '?. This should be just 'a of course. Now I have to backspace everytime and type the a again, you can probably see why this would annoy me. Also, same thing: if I type ", then space, then for example an r, I get: ""r.
I absolutely have no clue what could cause this problem. Any help would be highly appreciated!

Hi there I'm in Canada and I'm trying to get access to comedycentral com and more specifically their video-clips which get posted to random websites stumbleupon etc They have a setup where anyone IN Canada is automatically redirected to the Canadian comedy television website international to up a content proxy Setting view www thecomedynetwork com and any videoclips on the internet highlights from The Daily Show for example are replaced with a Setting up a proxy to view international content black window saying quot Comedy Central videos in Canada Setting up a proxy to view international content are available on The Comedy Network's website quot I'm sure these networks have their reasons read advertising revenue but I could care less I just want to see the clip that's on the site I'm reading I installed Foxy Proxy into Firefox but I'm not really certain how to work proxies and all of that I can technically follow along if I have instructions but as far as figuring out Comedy Central's IP address if I even have to do that and arranging white-lists and exceptions I'm lost If anyone has set this up or knows another alternative please let me know Thanks Joe

A:Setting up a proxy to view international content

Just in case anyone comes looking for the same thing... I found this elsewhere, and it worked for me, but only if using Firefox

For Canadian viewers, if you are using firefox, install the following addon: then:

1) In Firefox, Go to tools->modify headers
2) From the drop down box on the left select add
3) Then enter: ?X-Forwarded-For? in the first input box without the quotation marks
4) Enter: ?″ in the second input box without the quotation marks
5) Leave the last input box empty, and save the filter, and enable it
6) Click the ?Configuration? tab on the right then proceed to check the ?always on? button.

Close the Modify Headers box and it should work.

On one computer I am running one ISP and on the other computer I am using a different ISP.

Each Computer has its own PPPOE dial up connection. My router is set up in bridge mode (Telkom Mega 100WR2)

Is there a way of making my router split the international and local bandwidth of my one ISP account so that when I go onto a local site it doesn't use my international bandwidth?

Or is the only solution buying two different accounts - one international and one local?

Please let me know ASAP


A:Splitting International and Local traffic using one account with one ISP

Think of it from the router's point of view. Every packet that it comes across must be "routed" to either a specific gateway, or its default gateway if none of the other routes match.

There's really nothing at the IP address layer that directly distinguishes "national" from "international" addresses, but you could for example deduce that IPs in the (making this up completely) 144.123.X.Y and 144.124.A.B ranges are definitely "national" so they should be forwarded to a specific (national) gateway instead of being sent to the router's default gateway to process.

The precise mechanism for adding routes will depend on your router. There may be a console interface, or you might need to connect via its HTTP administration page and find the "manage routes" section. That's the easy part.

The hard part will be establishing exactly what IP ranges are considered "national" in your area, and whether the blocks are sufficiently contiguous to allow you to add all of them individually, or whether you'd have to use supernetting. Unless you've done that type of work before you'd probably want some direct assistance from a networking technician.

HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC

I am leaving the country for three months in only a few days. My notebook does not convert power. I'm thinking of using a Radio Shack power converter and a surge protector. Will this be safe?

I have tried to find something on the HP site but I can't find anything like that and anyway, I don't know if they could send it in time.

Any suggestions would be a HUGE help!

Thank you!!

Hello everybody,
I'm using a Lenovo ideapad Y700 (15isk) with a german AC power Adapter and charging/power cable and I will travel to NYC tomorrow. From an old ASUS netbook that I bought in the states I still have the american charger/power cable and was wondering if I could plug it into the german AC power Adapter or if I need an adapter for current conversion or something.
AC Power Adapter specs:
AC ADAPTERModel: ADL135NDC3ALC PN: 5A10J466990LI PN: 45N0361, FRU PN: 45N0501INPUT: 100-240V~1.5A 50-60HzOUTPUT: 20V 6.75A
Cable specs:
WS-001FE11533010A 125V~
Would highly appreciate any input on this. Don't really want to buy an expensive adapter if it is not necessary but of course also don't want to damage my laptop. Thank you!

Laptop Acer Aspire One Op system Windows XP Home Edition - Version - Service Pack MY PROBLEM I am using the keyboard that comes on the laptop not an external one I use the keybord with the United States-International setting in order to use the accents of Latin languages For the last month or so this is happening with all applications Word IE Explorer Firefox etc when I press some keyboard keys the response on the screen is not what it is supposed to be with the international keyboard For example shows shows so I can t print any accented vowels It was working properly for almost two years and suddenly started this erratic keyboard setting States-International United behavior I have not made any changes except the Microsoft updates I have tried adding and removing the international keyboard several times I also tried with United States-International keyboard setting num lock off and that was not the problem The keyboard layout is set to US international correctly it shows correctly on the task bar but the characters do not print as expected I read in some web-board that apparently the same issue is happening to users of Windows latest version patched and that maybe a recent Windows Update has broken International keyboard for XP Vista and Based on that I removed the Windows updates dating back to when I recall all was well Still problem unresolved Any suggestions Thank you very much

I'm not sure what happened, but one moment I can use all my international characters with the simple <alt><char> strokes that I'm used to, and now I can't. For example the ? I normally get from <right alt><,> but now that gives me nothing. I did not install any driver updates, and the keyboard is selected in control panel. I'm running windows 7 home premium 64 bits.
How do I get my international keyboard back?

Thanks in advance for your help.
