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.)

Hello, I just bought a Lenovo IdeaPad L340 15" in a store. Sadly I have a problem which is the DVD slot drive: From what the seller told me, it doesn't come with a DVD drive BUT I can take the thing inside the bay off and put an internal drive. Is it true? If so how do I take it off and what kind of DVD drive can enter in the slot? Thank you really much

Hi everyoneI bought the L340 laptop today but I can not use any headphones on it. I have tried 3 or 4 different headphones but windows does not detect any of them. I have tried updating my sound drives, uninstalling and reinstalling them but nothing seem to work.I only have this issue with the 3.5mm jack though, I have no trouble using a USB headset.I don't know if this is relevant but the headphone jack doesn't plug all the way although the part that is left out is so small.Thank you

Just bought a brand new IdeaPad L340.Its Touchpad is not working properly -It is missing basic gestures; For example "Two-finger tap" = Right click doesn't work, or when I drag a file and my finger reaches the end of the touchpad the file stops dragging instead of continuing to go in the same direction.Two-finger scroll stops working if I scroll slowly and keeps on going if I remove one finger during scrolling. I have done all the basic stuff:1) Windows touchpad settings page has almost no options in it other than "Touchpad sensitivity", so that didn't work2) In device manager, there is absolutely no driver for the touchpad. I updated the rest of the drivers.3) Windows is up to date.4) I ran the Lenovo scan for any new drivers and all the Lenovo drivers and BIOS are up to date.5) Windows helper could not solve this issue. I have absolutely no touchpad control and I am desperate for help.Thank you

Hey all, I've recently bought the L340-15IRH model and I'm in love with it! Since I bought it from Germany though, the keyboard layout is qwertz and I'd like to replace it with a qwerty one, but I am having trouble finding such. Could someone please point me to where I could buy a compatible keyboard? Thanks!

Since 2-3 days when i updated my drivers and windows to the latest version the performance of my machine has become slow and the screen goes blank (black) suddenly for 5-10 seconds. And when the screen starts again everything (like fonts, icons) get bigger all of a sudden like the windows version is not compatible.And i am getting this notification saying "Display driver failed to start; using Microsoft Basic Display Driver instead. Check Windows update for a newer display driver." But in updates its saying, you're up to date.Thanks in advance for your help and attention.

Hello everybody, Two days ago I bought a Lenovo l340 gaming, i7 with a gtx 1650. In these two days of usage I'm experiencing some battery life problems. With a normal usage, web surfing and downloading my battery last only for couple of hours with power saving option actived. I'm reading some benchmark on the internet in which the tested model last for 5h or 7h, is it possible that my machine is defective? What's your experience? Thanks in advance for the answer

Hi, I recently bought the l340-I5RH (Gaming laptop, 9th gen i5, GTX 1650), and I noticed that the touchpad seems to be pretty bad in a couple different ways. The first thing I noticed was that the touchpad feels sort of "loose", the physical touchpad plate seems to descend slightly even upon light presses that don't trigger a click. Secondly, I'm unable to move the cursor using the touchpad while during any sort of keypress. This is an issue in things like simple games (Obviously, only the type that I would play with a touchpad, using a USB mouse is fine). I looked into it and it seems like an intentional feature, something about accidental palm movement while typing; however, I followed multiple sets of directions in pursuit of disabling, but my device seems to be missing the options set to remove the function.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Good day! Hi Lenovo. I just bought my Lenovo Ideapad L340 Gaming early this year but as early as now i noticed display stuttering when watching videos. At first i just thought it was because of low internet speed but as time went by i noticed that such stuttering or display hang ups are already so frequent. Did anyone have the same problem as this? Is there anything i can do? Or do I need to resort to the Lenovo Service Center. Thanks!

Hi Vshlkhatri! Welcome to our forums community. You can flash the BIOS to its previous version from this link: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/bgcn24ww.exe. Here is the read me file: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/bgcn24ww.txt. Before proceeding, you need to enable the BIOS backflash in the BIOS.

Hi All,I am trying to figure out what the max ram is for my machine:L340-15IRH Gaming Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81LKMachine Type Model:81LK00SRCFProcessor: 1x Intel Core i7-9750H Processor(Core i7-9750H)Memory: 1x 16GBDDR42400Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64(EN:English,FR:French)Hard Drive: 1x 1TBPCIeNVMeWireless Network: 1x Intel Wireless-AC 9560 2x2 AC+BT5.0Ports: 1x Combo of 3.5mm Stereo Headphone OutputCamera: 1x 720P Camera with Dual MicGraphics: 1x NVIDIA GTX 1650Monitor: 15.6 1920x1080Included Warranty: 1 Year Mail-inAs far as I can tell, the manufacture recommended is 16, which is what it came with. But it seems like it is fairly new (I think it was manufactured in Dec 2019), so I am wondering if the info that I am reading is for older models, because I have seen a lot of different configurations for this laptop online, and not many come with more than 8gb.According to crucial it maxes out at 16 or 20; I guess some motherboaerds have an extra 4gb soldered to the board, as far as i can tell mine does not.PHS memory, on amazon.uk say its 36gb! That is probably 32+4 if you have it soldered to your motherboard; so 32 in my case. If it can handle more than recommended, I wouldnt mind giving it a go, but I would be inclined to order a comparable part from crucial instead of this cheap stuff. Does anyone have experience with upgrading past 16gb, or know if it might work?Thanks in advance!

If I remember correctly, the motherboard of L340 actually supports up to 32GB RAM. While I can't be certain since this is never officially documented.

I bought my ideapad l340 a week before i left on a 3 months trip, so 2 weeks ago. It worked at first but now the keyboard is going crazy. No respons on typing, but it?s typing zero?s itself, continuously. So can?t get in, cause i can?t type my password. It worked once (trying for days now) so i updated stuff, see if it were drivers, it said it updated the bios, and then it rebooted, i had to login again.. and i got the zero?s back. It?s not the zero button that got stuck, it doesn?t feel stuck. So can?t go to the store since i?m a long way from home, does anyone have an idea what i can do?

My primary HDD was failing so I backed it up and replaced it with a larger 1TB drive.  After reinstalling everything the new drive is displaying the same size as my old drive and the extra space available is unallocated.  I can allocate it as
a separate drive but I find that annoying and would prefer to just have my primary C: drive show up with all of the available space.  I formatted the extra space and made it available separately as drive G hoping that I could EXPAND drive C but that option
is not highlighted as selectable on drive C for some reason.  Should I just live with this extra space or is there a way to easily combine C and the new G space?

I have a Dell Dimension 4700 running XP Service Pack 3. My original Western Digital Drive was dying. This drive was the boot drive and listed first in "setup" (after hitting F2) There was also a 300GB Maxtor SATA drive already installed which I used for data storage -- not bootable. It was listed 2nd in "setup".

Ultimately the WD Drive wouldn't boot. I cleared the 300GB Maxtor and did a clean install Win XP from manuf. disks WITHOUT removing the WD - Drive 1 first. (I had hoped to remove some data I hadn't yet back up

I tried rebooting BUT if both disks were set to "On" in "setup - F2" the system would NOT boot. If Disk 1 (WD Drive) was turned off the system would boot fine. I removed the "boot partition" on Disk 1 but if both drives were turn on - no go.

I have now replaced the defective drive (WD) with a Maxtor SATA II/300 (1 TB).

The boot drive (300GB Maxtor) is the "last" drive on the SATA interface cable and the new drive (1 TB) is on the second to last connector.
Still, if the blank, new drive is turned on in "setup - F2" the system won't boot. If off, system boots. (I want to use the 1 TB drive solely for data storage).

It seems the SATA controller refuses to recognize the bootable drive if both drives are active. All I can think of is this is due to the 300GB being "Drive 2" in my original system and still listed that way in "setup". There is NO ability to c... Read more
