I tried to update my BIOS recently, to the newest one on the Lenovo website (2XCN32WW v2.07), but it just says "Your machine does not match with this BIOS. Update process will be halted. I used the "Auto detect driver" service on lenovos site, so it should be correct.I am currently stuck on BIOS version "0GCN21WW v1.05" Please help, i am really lost here.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Hello,first of all sorry for my bad englisch.Yesterday evening I updated my BIOS from the version 2.0 to the version number 2.04.After the update I had multiple problems with the laptop. The sound didn´t work anymore and the laptop was very slow and sometimes didn´t even react. So I decided to use the "system recovery" on windows to see if it that would help. A few problems were solved by resetting the system but I now have problems with the fan. The volume has increased by alot. I barely could hear the fan before the problems with my laptop started. I also have the fealing that the laptop is slower in generell then it used to be, since the BIOS-Update.I hope somebody can help me. with kind regards

Hello, Lenovo.  I've got problem with unworking fan. For this moment I tried next things: Physical accurate cleaning of fan and surroundings from dust and suchlike things. Nothing prevents fan to move it's blades (huh, blades? I don't know how it's calling)Checking connection and reconnecting fan from\to motherboard.Reinstalling Windows back to the clear version.Installing all "recommended" drivers from your support part of website.Updating BIOS to the newest version that you've offered for this laptop model.Second reinstalling of Windows but now not from Windows Settings, but from special .iso file from Microsoft's support website.Always doing checking by Lenovo Diagnostic Tool. Also, I've tried to get something from sidepart apps like SpeedFan.Stresstest with expectation of reacting temperature sensors on overheating and turning on fan.Laptop was bought from LenovoIsrael ~1 year and 2 months ago. One day (the last sunday, I think) fan just stop working and laptop, obviously, become overheating every time I'm doing some work on it. Now is the last night before really important exam for me and I can't prepare doing tests online for three days because of lags caused by overheating.There is screenshot from Lenovo Diagnostic Tool.

I've updated all the drivers, i tried all options of the mouse, i've seen a lot of tutorials or solutions, but still i got this problem.I don't think that the problem is related to the mouse or touchpad driver, i think is something related with the graphics card or something related. But i've made all the updates, and i also tried to reverse the updates, but still i it made no difference, i still have the problem.Anyone are having the same problem?Thanks a lot,Daniel Demétrio

Hey guys  Quick question here: Just oppened my new Yoga 520 today and I noticed somehting strange happening on the screen. From the  3 pictures below:-1st is how the desplay looks from a front angle. The only flickering/anomalies you will notice is from the camera limitaitons on my smarthpone.-2nd picture is where the issue is clear in the picture and morso with the naked eye. These humps become very noticeble when you view the screen from a side angle.-3rd picture is just to emphasize the outline on these humps which are more visable from what can be captured on my camera. Also, these anomalies stretch on the uppers side of the screen as well. Can anyone tell me what these are? If I should worry? If they are normal or of they will get worse, and if I should take the notebook the a lenovo shop to change something on the desplay? Thank you for your time!

Hey, my Yoga 710-14IKB is once again missing sound drivers after a windows update. I've navigated to http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/no/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-710-14ikb/downloads and located the latest audio driver for my laptop, which was released 20th of july in 2016. I've then installed the driver that I downloaded, restarted the PC, and still no audio drivers. I mouseover the sound icon in the Windows 10 task bar, and it says "No Audio Output device is installed". I right click this icon, select "playback devices" where I am greeted by the message "No audio devices are installed". I right click the text and ensure that both disconnected and disabled devices are shown, of which there are none. What do I do now? Edit: I've performed the system update scan on the same page as the driver downloads, and the only two drivers that are recommended that I install are "Connect2" and "Camera driver for Chicony - 10".

So I haven't used my laptop for a week or so, and when I started it up a few days ago, the battery life turned from a solid 7+ hours to a mere 4 hours! I actually timed how long it took before the battery went down by 1% before this happened, so I did the same test after. When I tested it, for the first time, the battery went down 1% after 270 seconds(almost 5 minutes). Now it seems to lose the same amount of battery in a weak 140 seconds(just a little bit more than 2 minutes!). Can someone please help me find the cause and if I can fix it? I loved this laptop because of its excellent battery life.

When I do a windows shortcut (Ctrl+C) for example then immediately try to move the mouse the mouse will remain stuck in place and after about one second it will then move. This same problem occurs for Ctrl+A and even using the volume keys in Windows 10. I cannot for the life of me figure it out but it is very annoying as I use shortcuts all the time.

Hello! I'm having a rotatation problem - the screen doesn't rotate itself automaticly on Win10 - I actually have to turn on and off the auto-rotate button to do the rotation - but it's not the cause right now.  After that I decided to update the BIOS in order to eliminate that problem (at least I hoped for that) - so I downloaded a file from Lenovo site (bacna0ww). It updated itself but it didn't actually turned off the computer (the closing screen turned on for a second and got back to my desktop), so I had to turn it off by myself. After that it got updated (shortly saying) and then the "boot menu" appeard with a boot device to choose - which is my SSD (nothing else). I can choose the device by clicking enter but nothing happens. Screen flickers for a moment and got back immiedietly to the same boot menu with a SSD to choose as a boot device.  I was able to boot it by setting "legacy boot" and turning off UEFI by it - but why it actually happend? Can I turn it back as it was before? I tried installing the older BIOS version (it installed with an automatic restart without a problem) but it didn't help. The "boot menu" on UEFI still appears and still holds me back, so I can't boot by simply choosing my SSD and clicking enter on it. Will you be able to help me? Moreover - the auto rotation still doesn't work.

Hi coucoune1633 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community. 
 
To enter the BIOS , turn off the pc and use the Novo key (item1 page12) to power on .
Novo menu would appear offering BIOS set up (for changing boot options etc. )
System recovery option from one key recovery initial back up would delete everything and restore to factory defaults.
 
About booting to safe mode:
Since starting with Windows 8 and up , usual F8 on boot is deeply embedded on the recovery making it hard to access. 
 
 
If Windows cannot boot to a viable stage for to access advance recovery menu :
 
1. Shift + F8 works on some system , do it at same time you see the lenovo splash screen repeatedly.
 
2. Forcing recovery mode on windows 8 : turn on then suddenly turn off pressing the power button , then on and off again for 2-3 attempts , Turn on and see if recovery screen would show up for the advance option.
 
3. Some system have F11 / F12 on BIOS to launch the recovery / boot option 
 
4. Using a bootable media ( USB rescue image often useful for repair / back up  , using Windows media creation tool  ) 
     If Windows 8/10 does not start: (using the command line) 
    How to boot into Safe Mode from the Windows 8/10 installation media or recovery USB flash drive.

Hi guys, I have no idea what's happening with my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga S1 (it's about 3.5 years old, its warranty just expired). Every time I reboot, I get this weird message saying "Configuration changed, please reboot the machine...". I then proceed to reboot the machine and everything works but the bios options are always resetted! This makes the laptop extremely unusable for me as I always swap the fn/ctrl keys so that I don't have to learn a new keyboard every time I switch computers. If I go back and change the option, it works fine, but the next reboot it does the same message again and I have to reconfigure the bios at EVERY boot. I'm lucky this option is the only one I changed, otherwise someone that would have changed the boot order/graphics settings/passwords etc. would be in a much worst situation than me...At first this seemed like a typical bios battery being out of juice so that the config can't stay saved, but I've now changed the bios battery twice with new ones and this doesn't change anything... It's been working perfectly for 3 years but now it just suddenly stopped working for that reason (by not working I mean the bios that keeps resetting itself, I can still boot to my main OS just fine after).If anybody has any suggestion that would be greatly appreciated.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro S/N YB03851970i7, 8GB, 256GB SSDWindows 10 Similar to another poster here, I experienced a BSOD, then on restart no drive was detected. Checked the connection and confirmed that the drive was firmly seated. A few threads online indicated that switching BIOS settings from UEFI to Legacy Support had worked for some people, however this was not the case in my situation. After figuring out the ssd part number using this tool: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/ibasepartslookup I checked prices and found that an exact replacement was a bit on the pricey side for an mSATA drive. I found a faster unit for almost half the price through Crucial: https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX200-250GB-mSATA-Internal/dp/B00RQA6LFA Upon receiving the replacement drive I referred to these instructions for replacing the unit: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Lenovo+Yoga+2+Pro+SSD+Replacement/52424 Note that the fasteners on the bottom of the laptop are not Phillips #00 as indicated in that article, but are in fact Torx T5. If you're a normal person and don't have a bit that size, a good high quality option is Wiha: https://www.amazon.com/Wiha-75985-Handle-Storage-MicroBit/dp/B00XIPTG4A Get yourself a bootable USB (search Microsoft support), and you'll be on your way. Hope this will be helpful to someone else who runs into the same issue. Cheers!

From new the Yoga 910 has always seemed to have problems. I've posted in detail about speed problems before but with regard to fan noise : https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-910-crazy-loud-fan-even-when-CPU-at-l.... I'd like to raise this issue again though since I've discovered that the Yoga is distinctly faster 10-20% when on battery!!! I presume this is due to the way the BIOS is configured to ramp the Ghz up/down to balance fan noise with CPU temperature (I have the BIOS set to quiet mode since anything else is both noisier and slower - see my link above.) Apologies for the size of the screenshots but they accurately show the nature of the problem - when plugged in the raytrace rendering (using Blender) is 22 seconds slower and Task Manager highlights how, on average, the % utilisation and Ghz are lower than when on battery. And after several attempts this is consistent. So my question to Lenovo is why is my laptop slower when plugged in and please Lenovo can you adjust the BIOS so when plugged in the laptop operates at least at the same speed as on battery (without breaking the fan quiet mode which is already too loud). Oh... and I have checked my power options in Windows 10 and there's nothing that would indicate that being plugged in would limit the performance. Performance on batteryPerformance plugged in

I updated my bios for the laptop and the laptop restarted and the screen was black but laptop was powered on. Also keyboard backlighting is on. I turned it off and then on hundreds of times and held the power button for 30 secs but still nothing.
