Lenovo thinkpad...I installed a new SSD...installed Win 10 and has been running very well for about a year...

Now...It "may not" boot...I pull power plug...pull the battery...then plug both back in and it will boot...

It will boot normally about half the time...and the other half I have to go thru the little unplug and plugin routine
and then it boots up fine...

Maybe this is the definition of "plug and play"...or "plug and pray"...:):)

At any rate...this might be just reloading W10...I don't think it's SSD related...but could be...

Appreciate any thoughts and suggestions on trouble shooting this...
I've got a brand new Alcatel PIXI 4g phone. If I go into contacts and add a number, then click more fields, the words more fields goes away but there's nothing else to see. I'm on Android version 6.0.

Actually, when you click more fields, it goes to a different screen, with the words USIM contact and a link back to edit contact.

We are migrating from Exchange 2013 to 2016 but when uninstalling 2013 receive this error:
This computer is a member of a database availability group (DAG). It must be removed from the DAG before you can uninstall Exchange

No DAG exists, if i go into ADSIedit.msc within CN=Database Availability Groups nothing exists either...?

Any ideas?

I am trying to display a message in my bootstrap page IF THERE IS AN ERROR IN THE EMAIL FIELDS
I am using :
      <div class="form-group">
            <div class="col-sm-10 col-sm-offset-2">
                  <! Will be used to display an alert to the user>
I am able to execute the email.php form correctly if everything is fine, but if there is an error I am using
to go to the previous page with the USER INPUT.  I have tried several examples from the web and tutorials, but NONE of them have worked for me but this one (history)
My problem is that since it is history page, NO MESSAGE IS DISPLAYED
I am weary of dealing with web host companies that have creative pricing plans that drive me up a wall. I  would like to know the name of a company that charges ONE rate from the word GO all the way through at least 5 more years of renewals. I am a VERY low user of data. I simply want a reliable host with 24/7 technical help available for photos and emails. Can anyone recommend one or two? I am with one now that is demanding more than DOUBLE what I paid for the first few years! It isn't going to happen.
This will be wordy...trying to give all the info that I know to help out the experts.
We have converted from Ex2010 to Ex2016, we have hub in dmz.
we have a new cert from digicert-,,
Cert has been applied. mail is flowing fine, in and out.
When you open outlook you get a cert error- - the name on the cert is invalid or does not match the cert.
I know you can't assign a cert to a .local or internal server name anymore. so I'm not sure what to do?
something else that is very odd in our DNS. we have an A record x.x.x.11 (.11 is ex2010), If I change it to .15 (.15 ex2016 new server) email will not get to exchange- we get a bounceback message stating that the email is rejected due to content filtering. even if the email is nicely worded and formatted properly.
So 2 strange issues.
Last very strange issue...If I manually create an outlook profile- servername: ex2010, username and click check name the servername: ex2010 magically changes to ex2016 and the check name works and there is no cert issue.
I want my 90 users to not have the cert error, and not have to go to 90 workstations and manually recreate every persons profile.

There’s a lady I’m working w/ that’s driving me crazy about her Outlook view settings. According to her, she could have 50 emails in inbox but only sees 10, and she tells me she does not see a scroll bar to see the rest of the 50. The only way to see the remainder of the 50 emails is to delete some to go down the list.

I can log in as me on the PC she uses and the scroll bar is there, which tells me there is nothing wrong w/ the PC itself just her Outlook settings.

I am not sure if there is a limit on the amount of emails shown in the email column. If there were a limit like that, how would you change it? I do not believe this has anything to do with the font size.

I just wanted to see if anyone out there who might have an idea of what I am trying to describe.

I've attached the screen shot. Hopefully you can see the scroll bar is gone. I haven't gotten to the point of uninstalling/reinstalling office, but would seem there's some settings to get the scroll bar back.

I am sure many of you have seen this.  I am having an issue with my .css files and .js files as they are not getting assigned a value of css in the mime.  It is showing octet-stream.  I have tried to add it when uploading the files 1. Change Metadata Field (text/css) does not show up as an option.  Used S3 Browser and changed the Content-Type to text/css.  I guess it saved?, but then I go back in and view my site from Developer view in browser, it still says octet-stream.  I do have 1 css file that has the full url as the link (google fonts url). It shows up right in the Dev browser as CSS for the type.  FYI - When I inspect, all css files do not have a content type except the one for google fonts.  You can see my site here. Thoughts?

Currently have 64-bit version of "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime" installed, have a new application that is failing to install. MSI log indicates it is missing the 32-bit version of the 2010 tools. So I downloaded the tools from Microsoft at:

It downloads file "vstor_redist.exe", and when I install it it's log states "Visual C++ 2010" (see below). Ok, I kind of understand how they may be the same thing, however it never shows in the registry or add/remove programs as "Visual Studio 2010 Tools", and my 3rd-party application is still failing with the same error. So my question is, why does the vstor install show up as C++? And how can I go about finding a 32-bit installer that populates
the registry with the actual name "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86)"?

Error in MSI log for 3rd-party application:
 -- This application requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime. Please launch the install using setup.exe to install this requirement.
Note: I was never given an exe, only the MSI (that's prefered anyway since I am distributing via SCCM and/or BigFix)

Excerpt from vstor_redist.exe installation:

I am having problem with win7 my icons are not showing on the desktop but if I go to my computer and desktop I will find all my icons. Which command I can run to fix this problem
I have a customer that I migrated from Exchange 2007 to Office 365.  Most mailboxes were reasonable but the owner's mailbox was 99GB.  Ouch.

I had hoped that  I could enable In-Place archiving on his mailbox and as the mail was migrated, the archiving feature would know that anything migrated older than one year would go in the archive.  This was apparently naive thinking on my part and the migration of his mailbox failed when his quote was reached.

How can I now finish his migration?  Will the In-Place Archive just take time to archive the data?

Any help would be appreciated but no comments that his mailbox is way to big.  That is a given.  The problem is how do I get it moved.

I have an HP laserject 1320 on a Win7/64 machine. Printer keeps losing its duplexing and prints an extra blank page. Tired or resetting toggle multiple times to get it to stick. Should install a fresh driver. But I've done this before and it can be a bit tricky.

HP instructions for uninstalling call for uninstalling software from program list, then restarting program and removing device from printers and drivers. What's confusing at this stage is when to disconnect printer and at what stage.

Installing new printer: Do I simply run the downloaded driver software and/or so I have to go to devices and printers and ADD a new device. Or do I have to do both.
Dear experts,

I have a form with a list of customers orders, i want to refresh this list aoutmatocally every 5 minutes, what is the best way to go about this, currently i have

            TextBox2.Text = TextBox2.Text + 1

but it locks up the whole screen

I just setup an accepted domain to my Exchange 2010 and also created email address policy. Everything went through without a glitch. However, I can't figure out how to create a new mailbox under the new accepted domain. When I go to active directory users and computers, under SBS users I can't choose the newly created accepted domain. Can anyone guide me in the right direction?
Hi All

I need a simple script that:

Takes a TXT file, go through all lines

for each line, copy it to another line and add digits to new two lines...

For example:

If source file contains the following lines:

123456 abcd

111333 efgh

Then the new file will contain the following line:

25123456 abcd

67123456 abcd

25111333 efgh

6711133 efgh

(the 2 digits are repeating for all line...)

Good afternoon,

I have the following case in my virtual infrastructure:

I have a productive Vcenter version 5.5, with with five host and 39 virtual machines, most with redhat version 6.9 operating system.

I have set up my production VDP version 6.1, to do the backups of my entire environment within that Vcenter.

Since last week I have had problems to do the backup of a single virtual server, where at the level of the VDP logs indicates that I failed the backup because there is a snapshot currently associated with the virtual server.

On previous occasions when this happened to me, I would take another snapshot to the machine, then erase all the snapshot by means of the snapshot manager and those that did not erase them directly from the datastore.

But when I delete them completely from the snapshot manager and go to the datastore the snapshot still remains and I do not want the datastore to collapse, because having several snapshots for many days has its consequences at the storage level. Even reliace the following tests:

-Consolidate the disk: it does not allow it since it indicates that the vmdk is being blocked.

-I run a migration from the virtual machine to another esxi, try to consolidate the disk and it tells me the same message that the vmdk is blocked.

The other test I want to run is to turn off the virtual machine, perform a snapshot and then with the snapshot manager remove them all to see if in the datastore they disappear.

As a last …

Client has audio files from town meetings that need to go on website.  Site is due to launch as early as next week.  Largest file size is 341MB.  Website is being built on Wordpress.

Can someone recommend a software or plugin we can use to reduce the file sizes.  They are not tech savvy so it would need to be something pretty easy to use since they do not want to have me do it for them on a weekly basis.  

They might be ok with a free trial and then pay afterwards if it serves their needs.
We have an Exchange 2010 environment with several mailbox servers a single DAG and one CAS/OWA server. (we are unable to upgrade the version yet due to compatibility issues but we are working on it)

There were some issues when we were originally transitioning from 2003 so the Exchange admin at that time never implemented a CAS array.  

As part of our Disaster Recovery plan I would like to set up a second CAS server in our DR/colo site and have mail automatically flow through it should my primary site go down.  Of course mail has to keep flowing while I set up the new server and move over to the new array.

My question is is it possible to set up a new CAS server, create an array and move over to it without causing an interruption in mail?  Would my users continue to get mail from the stand-alone CAS server while I am transitioning them to the array?  what would be the order of steps to implement this change?  

As an added complication we are using VERITAS Enterprise Vault to archive our mail so we need to maintain Enterprise Vault integration in OWA.  But this is not a part of my original question.

Thank you.
I had a quick course of database few years ago and I forgot a lot from there. So you can say I'm starting from zero. I will try to explain to you on what I want to do and a picture with what I did so far.

We have a small business at home to change tires on a car (winter tires, summer tires). When I customer comes and changes tires they usually left them in our shop and we store them on a shelfs in the basement. For easier explanation let's say we have only 5 shelfs labeled from A1 - A5.

The guy comes to change from winter to summer tires. A receptor takes his name, address, car model, tires specification (of winter tires). Summer tires comes on the car, and the winter tires goes into the basement and on the shelf (let's say they go on location A1). After they are placed on the location we update the database with the location of the tire. When he comes next year we do a SQL query to see where he has his winter tires and we change them.

After receptor makes a paper with his information (name, tires, etc.) she prints this list with QR code on it with his client it. The paper goes with tires to basement and when a worker puts the on a shelf, he scans QR code on the list and QR code of location (a1 shelf) and update the database with location information of where tires are being stored.

I hope you see what I'm trying to make.
