And now there may be a dead pixel issue (I’m running a possible fix but it’s not looking good).

Just my luck :-(
Ah thats not good. Depending on the location, dead pixel can be a pain. I guess they can change the display.

I'm guessing this isn't available any more?

I’ve searched on the Lenovo website, I’ve checked the Microsoft website. I’ve googled and googled and no answer. I’ve double checked all the drivers.

I have no option available to me in the Display settings or even the Power settings (which one website suggests) to disable it.

The picture will show that I possibly should have an option to switch it off but on my laptop/windows 10 pro - I don’t.
Try method two here:

If not that, there is a thread here on how to fix it.

very unimpressed with UPS tracking

was to be delivered Wednesday, then tomorrow, now saying next Wednesday

defeats the purpose of having tracking at all

and obviously no way to contact them to complain

its an industry that badly needs a shakeup tbh

Ya it's a funny one the detailed timeline is allover the place too. They also had delivery for Tuesday when I checked it last night, now no expected delivery date. ðŸ˜
Others on this thread seemed to receive it early so not too bothered here

With anyone concerned about UPS, i'd call them.

I had the same issue last week. It arrived in Dublin and then the tracking said there was an "Emergency Situation". I had to call them and eventually got my package.

The issue was that, although Lenovo had printed my entire address on the package, including Eircode, when it arrived at UPS someone covered it over with a UPS label that had just my name and "Blanchardstown" as my address. No street name, no Eircode, just "Blanchardstown".

The UPS label didn't have my phone number on it either so they probably wouldn't have called me (the Lenovo label did). They might have sent the package back, i'm not sure.

It took a couple of days extra to get my package because I had "Requested an address change" but I got it eventually.

UPS labelling can be a bit dodgy alright. I've had issues with packages being misdirected due to my full address not being on their label, despite been provided it by the sender. UPS also don't use eircodes.

You'll be waiting a long time to get through on the phone, tweet them and you'll get a response.

I emailed UPS after a couple of delays and got a reply from them (the day after delivery )

Has anyone seen their Expected Ship date change for the better - i.e sooner?
Mine isn't due to ship until the 31st May - ordered off UK site, originally with metal palm rest.

I ordered off the UK site too on April 25th. Original shipping date way May 28th. It changed to May 25th for a while and this week it went back to May 28th. I don't mind. I'm in no rush for it anyway.

The Lenovo Ideapad 3 is available on their German site.

Can use mygermany.com for shipping which is down as 6 weeks expected time.
