Hi All, A couple of weeks ago we have a strange behavior with our Lenovo Flex 2 Pro. The notebook is turning off at exact 30 minutes, in the BIOS or in Windows this is make no differents.Now i googled a lot and found a lot of the same problem and all replaced the mainboard. I hope offcourse that we don't need to do that because the mainboard is around 350 dollar. Specs of the notebook:Lenovo Flex 2 Pro 80FL (I7-4510U) Already tried:- BIOS updated- BIOS resetted- Intel ME Firmware upgraded- Windows repair - Virusscan + Malware- Monitored the heat of the laptop- Replaced the cooling paste to be sure of the CPU and GPU- Removed a lot of components to test what the problem is (SSD, Audio, SD reader, Battery, CMOS battery) Hope one of you have a solution.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi. I have a problem with the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15D. I was using it normally one day, using Google Chrome, when it suddenly stopped responding. The whole PC stopped responding (although I could still use the mouse normally) and I had to manually shut it off. When I tried turning it back on, it took at least 10 minutes, and froze again about 5 minutes later. Now, the computer freezes after 10 minutes of use, even when I'm not even logged in. This has been happening for days. If anyone can help me, thank you in advance. (I'm using Windows 10 as well)

I asked Lenovo support and they told me to go to Best Buy?s to get it fixed. This laptop is one year old. The mother board is fine dc in cable is fine and adapter is fine, how do I access power switch board and cable?Battery and disk is fine. It suddenly turned off and never turned back on after a day. The cost of initial repair costs 300$ excluding parts and service. I might end up paying the same price for how much I bought it. I want to know what caused this but I?m not willing to pay 1000$ for a repair. And im in college and money is hard to come by. I bought batteries to replace the old one but it doesn?t work. The motherboard has current running through all parts of it.

So I have a Lenovo Flex 5 and a Lenovo Active Pen and the touchscreen works great with it. When I use writeIt by Lenovo, the pen has pressure sensitivity, but when I use any other software, I can't use that feature, and it is a pretty important one. Specifically, I need to use it with GIMP. I'm not sure if there's anything I can configure on that end for pressure sensitivity, but I hope there is some way I can use the pen for pressure sensitivity. Any help would be greatly appreciated

So my problem is as the title says.. Well it started when I opened my laptop from sleep mode then it was hanging up and then it suddenly turned blue with sad face.. I didn't read the problem clearly but i remember it saying a problem about "kernel_????_????"..

I tried to hard reset my laptop cause it was taking so much time then it ended up stuck on the logo... Now I'm the one with the blue sad face...



Hope you guys can help me as soon as possible., thanks in advance..

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.

Have you checked your power settings? Also either download Speed Fan or Hwmonitor. In order to check your temps. Sometimes you will not see a warning for your laptop over heating. It will just shut it's self down.

Both softwares can be download here at Techspot. Under downloads.

any body know off any?

A:How to stop the display from turning off after a certain minutes

I believe that you are refering to the screensaver that clicks in after x amount of minutes.Go to control panel,click on personalisation,click on screen saver.Their you will see a wait till probably ten minutes.Alter it to what you want.I have mine at twenty but the option is yours.This was more for the older type of monitors to prevent a image being burnt into the screen.

Hope thats what you are refering to.

First of all:
1. This computer has NO VIRUSES and NO WAREZ and NO INTERNET EXPOSURE.
2. This is not a laptop.
3. My Brother from Michigan sent it to me by mail, and I am guessing that is the reason this computer is so ****ed up.

Ok, well this is a very expensive computer (would be able to play half life 2). And well, after my brother sent me it (by mail), it seems to act like a god damn 80 GB Ipod (low battery life in under 1 hour etc.....). But of course, I plug in the device with all sorts of computer cables, and the same results happen. After a few minutes the god damn computer turns off!

When I set it to 115 V this happens!
(BUT I HEAR A REPETITIOUS BEEPING NOISE)

So I set it to 230 V and well the BEEPING miraculously disappears! But then the monitor doesn't turn on.

*****!!!!!!! I am so mad!!!!!! And I am not a computer genius.

PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME WHY HE SENT IT BY EMAIL. IT WAS MY REQUEST and WELL I WAS SUCH A DUMB*** FOR TELLING HIM TO DO THAT.

Can somebody help me resolve this?
Do I need a new powerbox?

A friend of my brother accidentally broke his Laptop the other day, and I'm trying to see if there's anything I can do to repair it. I'm not exactly sure what he did, but when he broke it, it apparently broke the monitor and killed the hard drive. Replacing the hard drive isn't that big of a deal, and he says he doesn't mind using an external monitor for it (though the monitor does still work, though it has a large crack through it now... which you can see here http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/oo151/Superbark/Photo-0009.jpg ).

Unfortunately, whenever I try to turn on the computer and run some things like diagnostics and whatnot, the computer keeps randomly shutting down. I think the fan is still working (since I can hear it), so I don't think it is overheating or anything (I could be wrong though, but the bottom never feels scolding hot or anything). Here's the strange thing though; whenever I plug in the Laptop and I have the battery in, the computer will turn on just fine (though it will shut down in a couple of minutes, like I mentioned up above). If I try to turn it on when the battery is out, but still plugged into the wall... it won't turn on. If it is not plugged in, but the battery is placed in, it'll turn on (then shut down in a minute or so). If I have both the battery in and have the Laptop plugged into the wall, then I remove the battery... it'll still work, but still shut down again in a few minutes. What'... Read more

Hi,

I know this has been asked a million times on the web already but its seriouslly annoying me now.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) keeps turning the monitor off after 15 Mins of in-activity.

However - before it does that at 14 Mins and 30 Seconds it sorta does a quick flash - then at exactlly 15 mins does the turning off.

All the power options are set to Never. (I have even created my own power plan for this)

I have never had this problem on this PC before - this is a new install - and since then it has been doing this.

(That makes me reluctant to think its the BIOS or Video Card)

Any ideas would be most welcome?

Thank you in advance.

I have recently done a system restore to a factory state. After reinstalling all of the programs I noticed that right after restarting my computer it actually is pretty fast, which can be especially seen by rght clicking on desktop or opening folders. However, few minutes after running it suddenly slows down simple things like right clicking on the desktop make me wait few seconds. Right now my computer has been running for few minutes already and I can see the text lagging a little as I type.
I have Avast, and I did a quick scan with malwarebytes just to make sure, but it didn't detect anything.
When I check the task manager I noticed that before it starts lagging, the CPU is below 10% if im not doing anything and even when when using some programs its pretty much always below 60%, however after it starts lagging, it jumps to 100% if I do as simple things as right click. I disabled most start up programs, but it didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.

***UPDATE***
I began to suspect overheating and so I decided to clean out the fan. So far no problems with lag anymore. ^^

My Lenovo Flex won't respond at all when I try to wake it up from sleep mode. I've tried to unplug it and hold the power button down for 30 seconds, but the light just keeps flashing. It's been unplugged all day, so to help battery should be really low, but it's not turning off. Any ideas or suggestions on what to do? I go back to classes soon and I need it for my classes, so I really need it up and running asap.

A:Lenovo Flex Won't Wake Up

This seems to be a widespread issue with Lenovo laptops for a very long time, but there appears to be very little effort being taken by Lenovo support to provide its customers with the solution, or a document with the steps to resolve the issue. Holding the power button down for 30 seconds should (on nearly all laptops and desktop computers) forces a hard power off, but apparently that does not work on Lenovo Laptops when they gets stuck in this state. From what I can gather from various forums on the Internet, the only way to get the system booting again, sort of waiting until the battery dies, is to remove the rear cover, and unplug the battery, wait a minute or so, and and then pug it back in.   Some users also report that updating the video driver, and perhaps the BIOS, will resolve the issue, but Lenovo Support has chosen to remain silent (publicly anyway) on which one, if any, is an actual fix on any of the many forum posts regarding the error, which leads me to believe that they haven't a clue. You do not mention what exact model of Flex you have, so I cannot point you too any of the instructions online on how to remove your cover and unplug the battery, so you might post the model number (not the serial number) in the forum,  or open a ticket with Lenovo Support, although I sounds like their phone support has not been too much help for others.  Good Luck,

Hi everyone!I am looking for ram to upgrade my lenovo flex 2 15 which has only 4 gb of ram and it's so so slow. I have found on the forums information about ram upgrade that it can be done. I have free slot avaialable. I have found in the manuals that it can handle only 1600 mhz speed. I am not sure which brand I am supposed to buy.. I have found Crucial RAM 8GB DDR3 1600 MT/s CL11 SODIMM 204pin and judging on informations from my system info software it is compatible with my system.  What do you think? 

A:Which RAM brand for Lenovo Flex 2 15?

Hi LeiceQ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The hardware manual for your system does have ram listing of OEM certified ram.
In cases when you need to get third party ram for upgrade, just make sure that it shares the same specification (DDR3L low voltage(1333MHz/1600MHz) SODIMM 2) and review return options.
 
This discussion would further answer your query on your planned upgrade.
 
Regards
