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.

 I have a Flex 4 1580 that is less than a year old.  I generally use it plugged in and have set the Battery Conservation option on which keeps about a 60% charge level.  Turning it off and running up a full charge the battery shows a full charge capacity that is about 65% of the Battery design capacity.  Other notebooks that I have had have a battery calibration utility and proceedure but I don't find one for this machine. Al

Hey like many others I'm having some issues with my FLEX 3-1580. Issue: The battery originally would not charge above 15%, now it will not charge above 14%. The battery light near the power button is on, and the charger works (tested with DMM). Sometimes I get a constant on and off between the computer detecting the power cord. This makes the screen flash back and forth in brightness going from plugged in to unplugged (This is remedied by disabling Microsoft AC Adapter in Device Manager, meaning it then stays "plugged in", still doesn't charge). If the battery is not plugged into the laptop it will start on AC Adapter after many attempts of 2 second boot/stop/boot/stop. Attempts: I have checked the voltages from the power cable internally to where it plugs into the board. The top two connectors get the 21V. The CMOS battery is at 3V. I reapplied thermal paste. I reset all connections. Looked for component burn marks but couldn't see any. I know other laptops have had issues with the MOSFETS but I could not find any MOSFET on the motherboard. Ran registry fixer with CCleaner. Updated all the drivers. Flashed newest BIOS In the end I don't know if its a software problem and something seriously got messed up by a virus in my registry or somthing.. Or if there is something on the motherboard that is bad.

Hi everyone, nice to be  a new member here. I'm currently using a Flex-15, that has been doing OK over the last few years, aside from ghost touches early on, then the touch screen died (still using 8.1).  Thinking of getting a Flex-3  80R40011US (i7/256 SSD/M940), but many reviews seem not so kind, and I am really torn about what to do.   I really like all of the features of the Flex-3, but reading of the black screen/shutting down issues, bad battery life, etc has me concerned.  The black screen shutting down is really a concern, even say after reading potential fixes here, and worried I will have a computer that can not be made to work properly...  Really don't want to get into a mess, right off of the bat, and can't afford to take a 15% restocking fee plus return shipping.  Is this issue over represented here, or do all owners experience this issue?  Is there an absolute 100% fix for this issue? Also would like to know about the display quality.  I had a 17" Y700 that had a golden cast, and despite a lot of fidling and BIOS update, it could not be corrected...  I hated it to be frank, and wonder if this type of issue, and/or other display issues are found in the Flex-3, with the 15.6" display? Thanks a lot for your help and insights, look forward to your replies.

My laptop has recently been unable to power on. Initially this started with the power button falling out of place, but that issue was fixed by a successfull re-solder of the button onto the board.

Dear Lenovo, I purchased this device, Flex 3-1580, at Office Depot some time ago. At random times, it will do the following: Video goes black; Backlight remains on. Audio will stop as well. Can't tell if any fan is running or not, nor can I tell if HDD is running. Keyboard may or may not be lit, but is unresponsive. Only way to get out of it is to hold power button until it turns off, let things clear out for ten seconds, and restart. Here are the conditions under which, after some months of trying to reproduce the results consistently, this crash seems to happen: a) Does it regardless of power source, be it battery or AC adapter. b) Unit can sit on a table for hours, unused, and not crash; but it may crash - eventually (keep that in mind, it'll come in handy). c) Unit only seems to crash when I'm writing a Word document, working an Excell worksheet, or attempting something productive, like chatting with a Lenovo TS person to try and resolve this (which I've attempted three times, and all three times the thing has crashed mid-chat). I've read the forums about similar problems. I've updated the BIOS to the best of my ability. Installed the new ME software. I'm not updating the video driver because as far as I can tell that's impossible at my end, and there's no way I'm reinstalling Windows 10 if I don't have to. So let's revisit b) and c) above. Unit can sit on a table, perhaps just watching youtube or something, and nothing happens...

Thanks for reading this. i have never posted anything in my life but i am stumped and need some help!
I got a dell inspiron 2200 and one day i was running it while it was pluged in and i unpluged it and the laptop just "Bloop" shut off......i tried turning it back on but nothing. just as if i had no battery in it at all. when i pluged it back in it fired up like normal i checked the battery meter and it said 97% full then charged up to 100% full but still it wont run off the battery. as soon as i unplug it it shuts right off.

Someone told me to run the battery calibration but my bios doesnt have an option for it. at least i cant find it. i know it has it somewere because when i first bought this laptop the screen was broke and when i bought a new one for it and booted it up it said i had to run the battery calibration befor it could start "not sure why" but i did...watched it drain and charge. so i know it's in here somewere. do you think this would even help?

Also i think i updated the bios so it might have had an older bios witch might have had the battery calibration and the new one i put on doesnt. It has verison A07 now. i tried "downgrading" to A05 and A06 but it doesnt let me, Says i have a newer verison and cannot install an older verison.

Stinks. this problem kinda takes the "Mobil" feature out of a laptop. Any help would be Awesome!

A:Laptop battery issue ??battery calibration??

i'm afraid the battery calibration program is only used to initialize new Li-Ion batteries which need to be prepped with an initial charge-discharge cycle.

It sounds to me like you have a battery composed of 32 (probably AA sized) cells.
One of those cells has died and hence you see only 97% charge. Unfortunately losing a single cell prevents current from entering or leaving the battery so your battery will not discharge correctly therefore shutoff without discharge.

I think you need a new battery. Although it may be possible to replace the single bad cell, other cells may be degraded also - if one cell failed, why not others? unit could have been exposed to heat etc.

Although I was an engineer for Gould, I am not a battery expert!

good luck!

When running Windows 10 Update on a 6 month old Flex 4-1580, a Lenovo Firmware update momentarily appears in the list of updates, but then disappears.

Do you want to continue?" If I look on Lenovo Support for my system, there is a BIOS update for the Flex 4-1580 indicating a security fix. This is very confusing. What am I to believe?

If the same failure would also happen in the BIOS then probable hardware issue should be reported to technical support team for in warranty repair.

I recently got a Flex 3 1580. It has both the integrated Intel 520 gpu and the nVidia 940M gpu.  Some of the games I'm playing for some reason don't seem to like the Intel gpu. I know for non windows store apps you can right click on the exe and tell it which gpu to use.   As far as I know you can't do that with the windows store apps. So my question is this.  Would it be okay to disable the Intel 520 in the device manager or would that cause problems with the machine or windows?

Hi, I was thinking of buying this hybrid:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834332513 And then upgrading it with this:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820250085 I'm not clear on whether this voids the warranty or not? As close as I can understand it, it "may" if I mess something up? I've opened at least 100 laptops without messing anything up, so I'm confident I can do it without damaging anything, but I have also seen motherboards and touchscreens die in the first year, and don't want to mess up that part of the warranty for an SSD upgrade. I figured I'd make sure it powered on, then shutdown, crack it open, install the M.2 SSD, clone everything over, wipe the old SSD once into windows, and then finally perform the product registration. (Which uploads all your hardware specs? So they'd know everything was A-Okay with the new drive in place?) Thoughts? Anyone got more info on how strict they are with self service?

My Flex 3 1580 started to show messages about device being plugged into head phone jack (hence the on board speaker is cut off), and unplugged randomly, and then it just all stopped, there is no sound from speaker, but the sounds were fine if I plug in a head phone. I tried "troubleshoot" on Sound, it changed driver from Realtek driver to Microsoft High definition audio driver. The sound started to show up from speakers, but the volume keeps on fluctuating up and down, even when the volume slider keeps constant. Another troubleshoot was run, and somehow the problem was fixed. However, after some time (likely due to windows auto update), speaker becomes silent again. The Realtek driver was present in device manager.  I downloaded the most recent realtek driver from Lenovo support website, instealled it, still no sound from speaker (headphone works fine all this time). Tried to run trouble shooter again to install High Def Audio driver, the broken sound comes back to speaker. I plugged in a headphone, and the sound was normal, no volume fluctuation. But the speaker went silent again, when the headphone is unplugged.  Any one has any suggestion? I'm all ears. Art

Hello! I have a Flex 3-1580 I've been using for just shy of six months. Recently, we changed internet providers, and I had log in to our new family network. I did so, and it worked rather well for about ten minutes, until my computer dropped the WiFi signal. This was something I was used to, because it's done so repeatedly with our old Internet provider. I just attributed it to a crappy signal. When this happens, I usually hit the "Windows" button, type "Wi-Fi", select "Change WiFi settings", and disconnect then reconnect to our home network. Until now, doing so solved the problem just fine. However, when I did so today the "Change WiFi settings" option didn't show up. I went into the settings menu and selected the internet and wifi option. Normally, inside of the Internet and Wifi menu within settings there's a special option just for WiFi. It wasn't there. This WiFi menu is the one that allows you to connect and disconnect, choose networks, etc. The whole thing is gone, and I can't find it. I restarted my computer several times, and once or twice the "Change WiFi Settings" menu comes back, but it goes away after a minute or two, or as soon as I try to actually connect with a network. Without this menu, my laptop doesn't recognize networks. I can't connect or disconnect to wireless, and I can't even turn WiFi on or off. I'm really at a loss to what's happening. Do you know how I can restore my WiFi settings menu?

Hi all, I recently upgraded my Ideapad Flex 4 with a new SSD, and shortly after began noticing random shutdowns, black screens, and failure to POST (it looked as though the BIOS had failed to initialize entirely, as the screen/keyboard backlights did not turn on). These symptoms often happened after the laptop incurred some form of shock, IE: picking the laptop up, setting it down, opening/closing the screen, or even simply tapping lightly on the keyboard or chasis. However, if the laptop were left completely undisturbed, these symptoms would not occur often. I tried literally everything I could imagine short of buying a new motherboard. I reseated (and then replaced) the RAM, I removed the batteries and let it sit overnight, I even tried flashing a new BIOS rom. After all that, I switched the SSD with the original HDD, and it works fine now (actually a little better, because the embedded controller had needed resetting for a while, but I hadn't gotten around to it until then). I wasn't aware that a simple SATA SSD could cause a laptop to fail to POST. As this happened several times over a couple of days, is there any chance of long-term damage to the MOBO/BIOS i should watch out for?

I recently purchased a new Pioneer DDJ SB2 DJ controller. Upon downloading the neccessary software and firmware from Serato DJ and Pioneer, I connected my controller to my computer via usb cord provided by Pioneer. However, when I opened Serato to start playing around, a error message came up saying that my hardware was disconnected. I looked up support from Serato as I thought it was a software issue. I quickly realized it wasn't after going through all the troubleshooting steps they provided. I then asked my friend to try out the program on his computer (MacBook), to see if it was a software issue or a computer problem. As expected it instantly worked on his laptop without any issues. I determined it was a problem with my computer. I took it to Geek Squad so they could have a look. Unable to fix it, they believe its a Windows 10 issue. So now I am coming to Lenovo to see if they can fix this problem. I find it ridiculous that out of nowhere my computer can no longer detect a usb plug in from my iPhone, external harddrive, and DJ controller.  Has anybody else had these issues?Specs: Windows 10Version 1607Intel Core i78.00GB RAM64-bit operating system

I recently purchased a new Pioneer DDJ SB2 DJ controller. Upon downloading the neccessary software and firmware from Serato DJ and Pioneer, I connected my controller to my computer via usb cord provided by Pioneer. However, when I opened Serato to start playing around, a error message came up saying that my hardware was disconnected. I looked up support from Serato as I thought it was a software issue. I quickly realized it wasn't after going through all the troubleshooting steps they provided. I then asked my friend to try out the program on his computer (MacBook), to see if it was a software issue or a computer problem. As expected it instantly worked on his laptop without any issues.

Please help! I've been using sleep mode for pretty much the entire time that I have had this laptop (one month plus).  This is the first time I sent it into sleep mode for the evening and awoke the next day to find that the laptop refuses to wake up.  The keyboard will light up merrily along with the power button, but the screen will not turn on.  The fans are also running full tilt.  I can hear them running loud and clear, which is abnormal as during normal operations I cannot hear this machine running at all.  After having a jet engine for a previous laptop, this was one of my favorite features of the Flex 3. I have tried doing a ton of different things to get the laptop to wake up again including power resets and using the Novo button.  Nothing has worked.  If I could get at the battery and motherboard battery without voiding my warranty, I would.  My only solution is to try to run the battery down by leaving it on with the keyboard lights as bright as they will go and let the fan run like a jet engine.  Hopefully this will drain the battery in faster than the 4 days that everyone else was reporting.  Anyways, I don't know how everyone's Flex 3's lasted that long on battery anyways.  Mine kept turning itself on. The point of this post is to ask what I can do so that this issue never crops up again.   I love this machine, but if this becomes a recurring problem, I'm going to have to can it and g...

I just purchased a Flex 3-1580 3 days ago. Last night, I used it and it was just fine. This morning it was plugged in and the light was on next to the power button, but it would not start. I tried moving it to a different outlet, and the light went off when I unplugged it. Now, when it's plugged in, the light doesn't even go on, machine won't start. Holding the power button for 60 seconds shows no response either.HELP!!I have homework to do over the short holiday break!
