Record not found in I94 database after name change

Asked over 1 year ago - Dallas, TX

I transfered from L2 to H1B and got new extended I 94 (with same I 94 number). While changing visa status i chamged my last name(after marriage) as well.

Prev Visa - L2
Prev Name - X X

New Visa - H1B
New Name - X Y

Now, When I went to SSN office to update my name on SSN card, they are not able to validate my record as they are not able to find me neither by old name nor with new name.

Took an info pas with USCIS, they have no clue why they are not able to find my name. I do not know where to go,. Please help.
