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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I have a yoga 900 13isk, i love to set the screen in tent mode, not to watch it as a tent, but to put the keyboard face down and use it as a screen stand. The keyboard is properly disabled when i put it in tablet mode (full 360 rotation), but not in tent mode (above 270 keyboard rotation), i tried playing with ymc service but without success, is this by design? or did i mess something up? Thanks

Hi all, I've noticed that my Yoga 910 is not auto rotatingwhen I set it to tent mode nor to tablet mode. Not only it doesn't auto rotate but it also keep the keyboard active... Not sure if this is a faulty sensor problem or just some bug. I've tried to follow the solutions presented in other topics but without success even tried a system restore but the problem is still here. I can't really identify which update has created this situtation but I know that when a couple of months ago it was still working. I also have the impression that more are affected, so could Lenovo release a patch to troubleshoot and solve such an important issue for a Yoga product (basically there is no Yoga functionality with this problem). Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

A few weeks ago (after some updates) I noticed my Yoga does not automatically disable the keyboard and mouse when swithced to tent or tablet mode.  ------------------------Things I have tried:------------------------ 1. Deleteing every single Lenovo utility and driver that could be related to this and reinstalling them. (Starting with Lenovo Yoga Control which should be the driver that runs the transitions, but also BIOS, chipstet and the standard lenovo settings and utilities). In any case, YMC.exe was and is still running in task manager, to no avail. 2. Installing previous verions of Lenovo Harmony (which actually recognizes when my device goes into tent or tablet mode and gives me the popup saying "your device is now in tent mode" but does not disable the keyboard or mouse). 3. Doing a system restore to a few months ago, but problem persists.  4. Checking if my Sensor Monitoring Service was running (it is running).  I am pretty irritated at this point and fresh out of ideas. Any help pretty please

So tent mode on my X1 Yoga Gen 2 is not working.  It was working when I first received but the fingerprint reader wasn't.  I updated the fingerprint driver, and that now works, but tent mode is not.  I've trired to follow other suggestions, but there is no rotation lock in my action bar, or in my settings whichever position  I have the Yoga in - tent, tablet, whatever - no rotation lock at all. I've updated all my drivers, aplied the specific fix for this, checked the registery settings, done an in-place restore of windows 10 - everything to no avail.  The sensors work as I can see the prientation just fine from a monitoring app I downloaded.  And one more thing - the service Sensor Monitoring Service is not running.  When I try to start it it says that it started and then stopped.  Not sure if that's relevant. Help please.  I paid a fair amount extra above an X1 price to have a tent style computer, and it's just not working.

Hello, As said in the title, this is what actually happens: While in tent mode, the CPU never goes beyond 35% use. The fan almost never kicks in and the overall experience is slowed down a lot. I set the Processor Cooling mode to Active in the current power plan, turned off "Intelligent Cooling" in Vantage and set it to "High performance" but it didn't fix it. It didn't seem to have any effect whatsoever. When running a CPU intensive task, as soon as I turn the screen back to normal mode, the fan starts spinning and the CPU use can go back up to 100%. I like having the laptop in tent mode, with a keyboard and mouse. Is there something I missed?

I have factory reset my yoga 3 pro numerous times and I can never get the keyboard to disable in tablet mode. Furthermore, the laptop should automatically switch to tablet mode when flipping the screen into tent mode, etc but it doesn't. Also, the laptop never is able to auto-rotate vertically.  I have followed the instructions on the lenovo site by keeping lenovo harmony and one key optimizer but that solution never works. Recently I have noticed that the screen brightness key doesn't work properly either. I use the dimming keys and they either make the screen the highest level of brightness or the lowest but no level in-between. I have factory reset this laptop so many times. I feel like some of the original programs that came with the computer could be interfering or Lenovo just doesn't bother to keep the software up to date...

I've had my X380 for only a few weeks now and I noticed it's already getting scratched from being in stand mode. I had an S1 Thinkpad Yoga for years and it never developed scratches from being in stand mode. I noticed that the rubber feet on the palmrest are not the high point but the area below the trackpad is and that's why it's getting scratched.I was thinking if I could get some more of the little rubber feet on the bottom of the palmrest I could maybe double them up to make them taller, but I can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know if these can be bought on their own? Or maybe another suggestion to prevent the scratching? I've temporarily stuck some black rubber strips on the feet to make them taller, but it doesn't look that great.Thanks

Hi there! My 2 month old yoga 720 occasionally does this weird thing, when turning the screen from laptop mode to tablet/stand, and back. The screen sometimes glitches out with grey stripes vertically filling the whole screen, or it just might go black. It seems like a bad connection to the mb or something, so the opening or closing of the screen twists or yanks a wire or something. This is of course irritating and now I'm not overly confident in using the laptop to it's fullest potential, fearing that I'll break something. So is there any self remedy for the issue, or can I open the machine and check if something is pinched or something? Specs:Make: YOGA 72015IKBType: 80X7BIOS: 4MCN25WWV1.10

Hello, I think the subject of this thread describes exactly the issue i have on my Yoga 2 Pro. In Laptop mode everything works fine but as soon as I enter the stand, tent or tablet mode (i.e. display angle > 180) the CPU of the system stays at 800 Mhz all the time and wont speed up. Of course the system works extremely slow on 800 MHz. Its just not usable.When changing to laptop mode everything works fine again. I have tried different energy modes in the windows settings but it didnt have any effect.

How do I correct this.

A:Screen upside down in Tent Mode

The system has a Gyro sensor and an Accelerometer that should detect how you have the LCD positioned and adjust the display automatically.   Is this something that you have always noticed out of box, or something that had recently just started? Was there any changes made to the system just prior to you noticing the problem? If you have recently reinstalled windows on the system please try installing the Intel Dynamic Platform driver windows 8.1 , DPD Win 10 and chipset driver win 8.1 , chipset Win 10 Please report back here if you continue to have problems.

Hello,

I'm trying to disable UEFI on my computer. I did this on some other PC's and it all worked out fine, but I got stuck with this one.

The BIOS does have a "secure boot", "fast boot", and "quiet boot" option, but even when I disabled them all I could still only boot into windows 8 (I'm using a USB-stick which worked fine on another computer).

I can't find a CSM or Legacy boot option anywhere!

Also, when I select my boot order, it says "UEFI:" in front of my USB.

Thanks in advance!

A:Disabling Secure Mode doesn't disable UEFI

If you can boot into Windows 8, what are you trying to boot on the Flash Drive? Or do you mean you cannot boot the flash drive at all? Maybe some clarification in this area.

What options are available on the fifth picture for UEFI USB Flash Drive Priorities?

Hi, I recently purchased a Thinkpad X1 Yoga, shipped on May 16, 2016.  I have an issue:     When I use the left side USB port (the one on the side of the power charging port) to charge my old Ipod and the laptop goes to sleep. The laptop does not wake up when opening the lid or pressing on the power button. However, as soon as I disconnect my Ipod from the USB port. The laptop immediately wakes up but unable to login using the fingerprint reader. Specific steps to reproduce: 1) Plug x1 yoga power cord to the laptop 2) Plug Ipod to the left side USB port. Make sure Ipod has no earphones plugged in. 3) Put the laptop in sleep mode 4) Close the lid of the laptop 5) Wait until iPod is no longer being charged by the laptop (a few seconds after the laptop goes to sleep) 6) Wait until iPod automically turns off on its own (it takes 15 to 30 mins, not sure exactly how much time.) 7) Open the laptop lid and notice that the laptop is not waking up. 8) Press on the "power" button on the right side of the X1 Yoga. Notice that the laptop does not wake up. 9) Remove the iPod from the USB port on the left side of the X1 Yoga.        Notice that the laptop is now able to wake up.        Also notice that the finger print reader is not responding. Cannot login using the fingerprint reader. Seems like a driver issue. Lenovo please confirm! ThanksWilly

A:Yoga 500 doesn't switch to tablet mode

Hi Heck,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Windows 10 is definitely better designed to be used in table mode and switch between a table mode and computer mode use. Despite that I expected some learning curve, I found that the Windows 10 environment is immediately very intuitive to use. When in Windows 10, you can access the table-mode settings by navigating to Windows 10 Settings > System > Tablet Mode.
 
?

 
Also, Turns out there is a screen lock position button on the side. You might have pressed it by accident....that's what I did.
 
Let us know how you get on.

In this state it will flicker when the computer is tapped or bumped, or just moved around, and when placed at certain angles it will stay off. If I turn it on, it stays on consistently ? it's only when it's set to off that it doesn't work right. It seems like there must be a loose connection in there or something.

Hello,
I have been using my Inspiron 13 5378 since December 2016. After working normally for few days my screen stopped auto-rotating. I sent my laptop back to Dell for repair and received it after a month in April. Very frustrating thing.
When I received the repaired laptop the auto orientation was working fine but it stopped working again after a couple of days.
I don't know what is triggering this but I have tried myriad of solutions available online including reinstalling chipset and sensor drivers, disabling and re-enabling sensors in device manager, setting sensor services to start automatically and much more.
But still, the auto-rotate feature is not working.
I don't want to send my laptop back to dell again for another month, please suggest any solution if you know it.
Thanks in advance!
