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.)

A:idepad z510 backlit not working

hi turtle7,
 
Yes That info is correct if a keyboard has a backlith Capability, it should have the icon on the Spacebar. and FN+Spacebar should trigger it.

Hello everyone i hope you are having a nice day! I have an ideapad z510 , i just opened it for a usualy dust cleaning , i have been doing this for long time and never had problems with anything, untill today, after i finish closing the laptop, i trun it on and i notice that the lights of the keyaboards are not working anymore, only the caps and Num lock are working.

I recently purchased a T460 to realize that it did not have a backlit keyboard on arrival, I see aftermarket ones online for reasonable prices so I'm curious as to whether or not there is some output on the motherboard I am missing or if it would be just like installing a regular one.  I have seen on forums that people have done it but I am asking specifically for the T460.

I just got a T470. Excellent computer! I got the Core i7-7600U model with 4gb of memory and a 500gb non-SSD hard disk (T470 20HDCTO1WW, ordered directly from Lenovo). The 2TB SSD and 32GB RAM I got from Crucial work without problem (yes, I ran a memory tester) ? although, yes, it?s a moderate pain to take off the back panel (even if you have a special plastic tool for doing so). It?s a really great laptop; I like how clear and bright the display is as well as how fast it runs. That said, on to my question: I got the model with the non-backlit keyboard. Is is possible to upgrade this model to have a backlit keyboard? Here is the information I have gotten from my research: * The dealers selling T470 backlit keyboards warn that it may not be possible to get the backlight to work if the motherboard does not support it (for example, https://www.amazon.com/ThinkPad-01AX569-SN20L72890-Backlit-Keyboard/dp/B0727S1H14/ where they claim ?Please check whether your laptop can support backlit keyboard or not before placing the order, if can not, the backlit function of our keyboard will not work!? or https://www.amazon.com/CHNASAWE-Replacement-Backlit-Keyboard-Thinkpad/dp/B071KWWW21/ with a similar ?If your original/old keyboard does not have the backlit, this keyboard backlit will not work.? warning) * There is nothing in Lenovo?s T470 service manual at https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/pubs/t470/html_en/index_en.html#Replacing_t...

Also, I've been reading that people have problems setting the time for M6800 backlit kb (as there is no app for it) and they were using older version of Dell Enhancement Pack intended for M6700.

A:Can I replace my non backlit keyboard with a backlit keyboar...

OK here is the Service Manual: Manual The keyboards are not sold by HP as a separate part: only sold with the whole top cover. See p. 20 The Manual does not list any keyboard/top cover as having a backlight. However, the keyboard map on p. 15 shows the f5 action key as activating a backlight on "select models".  From this I gather that there is a place on the motherboard to connect a backlight cable if the keyboard has one. However, extracting the old keyboard from the top cover and replacing it with just the replacement keyboard is not easy and there are no directions in the Manual for that procedure. I would want to see one of these alleged backlit keyboards. Bottom line, it is possible, but I would be leery. Do you have an f5 action key with the backlight symbol on it? Have you tried it to see if maybe your keyboard is backlit? If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

If your computer is a "desktop" computer, it should be a "no-brainer".The USB port on your computer would supply power to the keyboard to run the back-lights. But, since you have a notebook, you'll have to find a keyboard that physically matches the size of your current keyboard, and then hope that the notebook's motherboard will supply electrical power to the back-lights.This sounds like a tough task!  From:  http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c04472797.pdf >>  Full-sized spill-resistant keyboard; optional back-lit keyboard keeps you productive in low-light settings lists that such an option is available, or maybe, was available when this model was first manufactured. From: http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c04551620-2.pdf Keyboard with backlight and pointing sick for use only on HP EliteBook 850 G2 Notebook PC and HP EliteBook 750 G2 Notebook PC computer models (includes backlight, keyboard, and pointing stick cables):       For use in Canada776475-DB1

Hello,

I recently had issues with my PSU and rather than play guesswork on whether its still functional, I rather just replace it.

My motherboard is a m3n78-pro. Its a bit dated but I'd like for this pc to last another 6 months before I build an entirely new rig. If I read the manual correctly, it requires ATX 12V V2.0.

The PSU I'd like to change to (since it just has to last another 6 months) this 900 w PSU. Would the m3n78-pro be compatible with this PSU? One concern I had was that the m3n78-pro requires a 4 pin ATX +12v connector. If I read the PSU's specifications correctly it has one 12V 8-pin (4 + 4) CPU power connector. Is that 8-pin two separate power connector, ie do I just use 1 of the connectors to fit into the 4 pin ATX +12v connector?

Please excuse my noobishness but what exactly does the v2.92 Motherboard specification entail? I tried to google it, but got less useful information and product results from newegg.

Also I read the wiki on the ATX 12V V2.X standard, but it didn't answer my question - is ATX12V v2.3 backwards compatible with the ATX12V v2.0 standard?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

Hello, I've just installed a SSD 120GB Plextor M5Pro drive on my Ideapad z510.Laptop is now fast as hell, but cooling fan works too loud now. It activates when CPU usage is about 5% and is much louder than before. When I switched back to 1TB SSHD it's quiet again. There's no fan-controlling option in BIOS and I wonder if theres an BIOS update or addiotional driver that allows adjusting fan speed. It's very annoying becouse laptop is twice louder than before.At 40% of CPU usage temperatures are like this:And the air is cold or barely warm.I request a BIOS or driver update if there's nothing like that now - for many customers that would like to use their SSDs along with z510 model it will be very helpful. Or any other solution that work.Please help.

Is it possible that you just think it is louder because the SSD it selve doesn't make any noise so will probably notice the fan more than bevor. I upgraded my Z510 to an SSD too and doesn't hear any difference.

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z510. I got it around 3 years ago, and this year, I realized that it has been running quite slow, or slower than usual. Whenever I open a chrome tab, it would take around a minute to set it up and would lag a little when I open up multiple tabs.  This is the specs of my computer.http://tech.firstpost.com/product/laptops/ideapad-z510-59-387061-specification-348262.html So, I was wondering, if I were to add more ram to my computer, would it fix this problem? Would my computer speed up and will respond/act faster? I know that I have 4 GB DDR3 right now, 2 GB that is shared with the graphics card and my task manager says that I have only used 1 out of 4 slots. Does this mean that I have another 3 empty slots that can be filled with ram? Also, is there a maximum amount of ram my computer can handle? I have seen some people ask about it but have no idea about it. So, my real question, would it be possible to add 8 GB of ram? This means that I would have a total of 12 GB ram, and would most likely have 4GB, 4GB, 4GB of ram, 3 slots taken out of 4. If I have 4 slots. But if I have 2 slots, then could I add an 8GB ram, and would have 4GB and 8GB, still totaling up to 12GB?

A:Lenovo Z510! ABOUT RAM

Hi fwachee,
 
Welcome to the COmmunity Forums.
 
Yes you can add 8GB ram to your current 4GB for a total of 12 GB.
 
As per specification from your hardware manual (page 27):
 DDR3-1600/1333MHz SODIMM 2 (max 16 GB)
 
Two slot are physically available if you would open it up for confirmation as shown below.
 

 
This would definitely improve speed and memory utilization of your machine specially with multiple browser and virtual machine apps.

RELEVANCY SCORE 36.4

My device: lenovo z510
 
Issue: I was using win 10 happily after the free upgrade. Suddenly 4-5 days back my cursor started blinking. This is problem no.1. Later I found out that whenever I try to cut/copy-paste anything it also didn't work. Searched a lot online but nothing worked. So I tried to reset windows(keeping win 10). But that to didn't work. Again reset windows, this time back to original one(8.1). Now two extra problems emerged. First is trackpad keeps freezing every 15-20 seconds. Secondly two-finger right click stopped working. Everything else is working like 2-finger scroll, zoom, rotate but not 2-finger right click. Tried a whole lot of things which includes uninstalling, updating drivers to list some. BUT NOTHING WORKED. Seems h/w problem. But no. I tried usb mouse too but the status was same i.e., cursor freezing, blinking, cu/copy/paste not working
 
I then switched to Microsoft support. Technical person took control of my PC for whole day. Tried random of things like updating graphics driver, running disk cleanup, deleting temporary files, etc. Finally in the end she suggested to reinstall clean windows dowloaded from MS site. I positively did that too. BUT THAT TOO DIDN'T WORKED.
 
NEED HELP BADLY. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP.

I gather you did not contact Lenovo support for call back. The should be able to resolve it if its not a hardware problem.If new then return and/or replace it are the options.Nothing can be done as the Tech's are the primary source for these problems.

Hi ThereI have lenovo Z510 and I'm really happy with it.But I have some isssues. 1st, it always had this problem from day 1. when it's on battery, it's performance goes really down (with every windows and high performance profile).2nd, it's some time that my battery gauge doesn't work well. it gets stuck at 100 and then suddenly goes to 0 and turns off.3rd, recently the battery is stuck at 0 and it doesn't get charged, while it says it's charging. battery led is always blinking red and the big problem is while I'm using AC adapter, yet it has low performance I mentioned in 1st isse above. so I can't run any big software and even have problems with web browsers...4th, a long time has passed since windows 10 has come and yet we have no battery manager or optimizer; especially fan dust removal and gauge reset could be helpful Thanks for reading,Best Regards, Amin
