  1. with that software did you follow or even see the instructions from this page? :- https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht501876 seems straight forward to me, but then again i don't have a lenovo tablet i can run tests on to better guide you. maybe it'll be worth contacting lenovo for help, because like you said there is nothing wrong with the hardware of the tablet and all you need to do is install the os rom again to get it working like it was.
  2. thinking more about it and doing a search i found lenovo's smart assist software so you may be lucky and be able to fix it yourself using that. download it from here :- https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht117028 don't know the full instructions on how it works, but i'd think you'd install the software to your pc, connect the tab to it and run the program and follow any onscreen instructions. https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht501876
  3. when you do upgrades, the instructions tell you to always have the device plugged into a power source, there is a reason for that and it's because when you upgrade what it's doing is over writing the old os with a new one but if it loses power half way through installing the upgrade then the device is left with half of the new os and half of the old os on there which means it no longer has a full set of instructions on how to boot the device to the main screen. when you powered off the machine half way through the upgrade because you thought it had frozen, what you're doing is exactly the same thing as if it had run out of power during the upgrade and that is why you were left with a device that no longer booted. the only way to fix it is to reinstall the os again from scratch, which means connecting it to a computer and using a special program to flash a new os to it. now i don't think lenovo supply a new os download that you can then use to put on your device and why you're left with the option of returning it so they can fix it or as nigel said maybe installing a stock android os from google onto it. personally seeing how it's so new i'd return it and either get a replacement or get them to fix it, if it was out of warranty then i'd look into how to install a stock android os on there.
  4. sorry to say it sounds like you've bricked the kernel, i don't think lenovo supply a stock rom to download so you can flash the device yourself and install the os again. so in my opinion i think your only option is to take it back to the shop seeing how it's only 2 months old and get it fixed/replaced by them.
  5. try it in the old motherboard, with luck the failed psu just took out the new motherboard only so all parts will work in old motherboard. apart from that then there is nothing else i can think of.
  6. the x99 replacement, whatever it is (can't remember) will probably be like the z170 and have the pci-e lanes controller separate from the bclk so you won't have that problem then. what's the difference in your oc when the bclk is set at 100? and is the extra performance of the nvme drive worth the loss of those htz or is it something that's not really noticeable seeing how it's probably a speed machine anyway. must admit i noticed the extra performance of the nvme drive on my daughters machine just because it and the whole pc was so much faster than my daily pc. things seemed to open nearly before i'd clicked on them it was that different and faster to the click pause then open of what i'm used to.
  7. that's good to hear. when it's empty, you might want to reconfigure your tubing so you have an easy way to drain it without the need to lift it and carry it outside. eg. something like this :- http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Koolance-1310mm-Valve-G14-ID-38-OD-12_61700.html
  8. just noticed guns has stopped folding, is that a temporary thing or more long term/permanent like me? teams still doing great and pumping out an amazing amount of points though and by the looks of it are still holding it's own in the rankings even with the loss of guns massive ppd production. great going everyone.
  9. depends what version of android it's running on how easy/hard it is to move apps to the sd card. this guide should help. :- http://www.howtogeek.com/114667/how-to-install-android-apps-to-the-sd-card-by-default-move-almost-any-app-to-the-sd-card/ first thing i'd think i'd do is check with your operator, verizon etc. to see if they offer the latest os updates and update the os on the phone to the latest they do provide. that's like taking 2 steps forward and 3 back. in all seriousness though putting apps on the sd card shouldn't be that hard depending on the factors mentioned. ie. os version. did a quick check and looks like lollipop is the latest os version offered for that phone by verizon :- https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/lg-optimus-exceed-2-update/ some links that may show you how to move apps to the sd card without rooting the phone. personally i'd never recommend rooting a phone the security risks are to great for the rewards in my opinion, but then again lots of others think the opposite to me and to them the rewards are well worth the risks of rooting. http://www.technobuzz.net/moved-android-apps-sd-card-without-rooting/ https://codingsec.net/2016/05/how-to-move-or-install-apps-to-sdcard-even-in-non-rooted-devices/ https://www.whattechsays.com/install-and-move-android-apps-to-sd-card/
  10. doesn't really work like that caintry, say the last time it was down was because of system failure, first they have to get it back up and running again and tested to make sure they've fixed the failure and it's only then that they can know the system is stable enough again to go ahead and do any maintenance like upgrading the software which would also requires the system to go offline again. plus things like maintenance are probably planned months in advance for a certain time frame, and the date cannot really be changed easily because of all the people and hardware that needs to be assembled at one time to complete it.
  11. just means verbose, and is used to show more details of what's happening than just running a command without it. must admit though with zypper i'm not sure what extra details it shows, but it's something i always use where possible because some commands don't show any details at all when run unless you use the verbose flag.
  12. open a terminal, su to root and enter this command. zypper -v up that will find and install any updates. if you get the same question enter "a" i think if memory serves to always trust that repo. that i believe will update your pc while also fixing the trust relationship with that repo for the next time you have updates and use the gui to install them.
  13. sounds weird, you have any ideas about why? is it a motherboard specific issue or is it because while ocing you're also ocing the pci-e lanes? maybe a uefi update might solve the issue, must admit i can't see why you should have a problem if the oc was stable and can only think it must of been a timing issue with the controller on the nvme drive some how. seems lots of people oc and use nvme drive with no problems judging by this topic. :- http://www.overclock.net/t/1603995/samsung-sm961-nvme-thread/30 you got to admit though 1 nvme drive being faster than 6 ssd's in raid 0 is mighty impressive and why i'm definitely going to have one myself in my next build, i was so impressed with my daughters build i really really didn't want to give it to her (course i did though.). i ran across this while seeing if i could find out why you were experiencing problems when ocing. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/storage/2015/11/11/samsung-ssd-950-pro-review/1 so your problems were more than likely due to the bclk over 100MHz on x99.
  14. you running raid for that disk score intel and how many drives? have you thought about getting an m2 nvme drive, i put a samsung sm951 (i think) in my daughters pc and the speed of that was phenomenal but of course you do pay for that speed though because they definitely aren't cheap per GB. i'm definitely going to have one for my os drive whenever i build my next pc though.
  15. he only runs 16bit for the test, it shoots up the score.
  16. this is what i'd build just for comparison. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117560 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157675 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125901 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817438054 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145911 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147467 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231902 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119316 total about $1406 without rebates etc. didn't add cpu cooler, what's in the box is good enough in my opinion.
  17. nice, my next build for myself will probably be something along those lines. i'm waiting to see what replaces the x99 chipset first so probably won't build until end 2017 early 2018 and i definitely want one of these as my os drive after seeing the performance of them in a build i put together for my daughter earlier in the year.:- http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100011693%204814%20600488413&IsNodeId=1&cm_sp=CAT_SSD_2-_-VisNav-_-M.2_1
  18. no problem bh, we just have different ideas, personally i always want to build a pc to the max budget i have whether i need the power or not. and he does want a "VERY fast pc."
  19. think you're missing the point bh, there is no single thing he does that requires an i7 i'd agree, but he multi tasks to such a degree that he brings an i5 to a crawl, agreed your i3 listed may be slightly faster but he'd still be much better off going with an i7 build just because of the multi tasking. it's not just gaming that can utilize the benefits of a 1100 series card, there are lots of other things that can too. so see no point in spending $400 on a build out of a possible $2000 budget when what your building will be in the exact same position as you were to start with. that's just my opinion though.
  20. to be honest bh, i wouldn't go for anything less than 1151 and z170 if i was to buy new now. psychotron, thing to remember is more cores and ram the better especially when you do a lot of things at once like you describe you do. so i'd be looking at something like i7 6700 with 16GB of ddr4 ram and a fast ssd along with a 1100 series nvidia graphics card.
  21. know nothing about the make and can't see it being a great drive, but lets be honest for $6 you've nothing to lose. http://www.michaelstaake.com/three-budget-60gb-ssds-reviewed-kingston-ssdnow-v300-vs-patriot-torch-vs-kingdian-s200/
  22. that's the trouble it takes a long time before some breaches are found or reported, but i disagree and it's never to late to change your passwords especially if you use them for more than 1 site, (which of course you should never do.). same story here:- http://arstechnica.co.uk/security/2016/09/yahoo-says-half-a-billion-accounts-breached-by-nation-sponsored-hackers/
  23. only way to know is to run some test on it i'd think. just go to the drives manufacturer site and download their drive diagnostic software and see what it reports about it health. if a drive is getting to hot then i'd suggest adding a fan to keep it cooler, really i'd think you'd want your drive never to go over 40c, and be around 30C usually but from my understanding some drives in a laptop for example can reach 60c without problems. i think drives that are to cold (less than 25c) or to hot (higher than 50c) have a higher failure rate, but don't think just because a drive runs hot means it's failing or "shot".
  24. in my opinion i think it's a m$ tactic so people will upgrade to a new win 10 os. so instead of making windows 7 updates unavailable and forcing people to upgrade they just make the servers very slow so getting and installing them all for a clean os install takes hr's if not days. no idea if that's correct or not but it's my conspiracy theory and i'm sticking to it. as an after thought maybe something here :- http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/616671/what-is-going-on-with-windows-update/ can help you speed things up if you decide to try again.
