Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR - Bricked?

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR - Bricked?

Hi All, First off thank you for this community it's been incredibly helpful. I think I may have bricked my 100s-14IBR and need some advice. I received this laptop secondhand from a family member and being computer savvy (or at least so I thought) I wanted to make it my own and install Windows 7 Pro on it. So let's get started. Bios SettingsSecure Boot: DisabledBoot Priority: Legacy SupportBoot Priority: Legacy FirstUSB Boot:Enabled - Booting from USB with Windows 7 iso created using Rufus - "MBR partition for scheme UEFI"- File system was FAT32 So I am able to boot from USB, load DISKPART via W7 cmd prompt, clean the HDD, convert to MBR from GPT, wipe all partitions clean, format them into one partition (instead of the original four), and install Windows 7 (although painstaking slow). Immediately upon first boot I get BSOD and following that I begin bootlooping in to the Windows Advanced Options menu giving me the option to boot into Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, etc. Safe Mode Fails, Start Windows Normally Fails, and Last Known Good Configuration takes me back to the BSOD. So, I threw up my hands and decided to re-install Windows 10. However, now the system doesn't act like it wants to boot to Windows 10 from USB stick. I simply keep geeting a boot loop into Windows Advanced Options Menu. Have I bricked my device? I can still enter the BIOS and the Boot Menu via the Novo button. However, no matter how much I fiddle with those, I cannot get it to boot from USB. I read another thread (here) that warns about wiping all partitions and is related to WIMBoot-enabled devices. This is my first time messing with GPT partitions and clean installing anything other than Windows 7 and prior. Thanks in advance for any help booting back into Windows 10 install. Best,-ak

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR - Bricked?

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 had my Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR for just over a year now. I had a few issues during this time such as the screen goes black and a battery issue. I sent the laptop back for repairs which were done. A problem though was they sent it back now and wifi was not working. Once in a while, it would let me connect to a connection but it the signal would be one bar or it won't connect. Usually, it says no available connections (wifi symbol dark grey with red cross). This has been like this nearly for 5 months and I've had enough. I've tried updating drivers etc but nothing works. I troubleshoot problems and it says "problem with wireless adapter or access point." This laptop is on windows 10. Please Help!

Hi, I recently upgraded the Storage with a WD green 120 GB M.2 SSD. Post upgradation, i installed Windows 7 into the new Drive. After dealing with several error messages and trying all workarounds the system was able to boot and became a working machine again.  I accidentally formatted the eMMC i.e. previously my C: drive and faced a lot of difficulty in making it work. However happy that finally the system is back to its normal working condition. The only problem i am facing now is, i am not able to see the 32GB eMMC card in Disk Management or in MY Computer. Though the same is visible in Advanced Troubleshooting during pre-boot (Repair your system Option) . Though the volume is visible and is empty there, its not visible inside windows explorer after windows starts. Though it doesnt affect the system's performance now, i would like to use the 32GB memory. I tried looking for the driver but not didnt find any. I am currently using Win 7 Enterprise. My next attempt would be to upgrade to Windows 10 and see if that resolves the issue.  Please Help !

STORAGE, DISK HEALTH, BATTERY, OVERHEATING My laptop is 1,5 years old. I think its ergonomic and good to use.  But; Storage is way too low, you have 10gb free space with default apps and drivers,  Each process has become too slow to be done, even though opening browser or file manager. Battery life reduced to 2 hours on internet use. (Only reading)  After 30 minutes of reading pages, keyboard is untouchable (middle part).  I hope these problems are in warranty conditions.

I am trying to do a recovery for my 100S but at about 45% it says error and stops. Now the computer doesn't load windows and I'm stuck on the Lenovo screen. I thought I had a solution when I saw Lenovo had a Lenovo Recovery Digital Download Service (RDDS). Basically this allows me to create a USB drive that has the recovery on it. I tried it but at 10% it says error and then stops. Now the computer just keeps going into the boot menu and anything I select nothing happens. Right now my IdeaPad is a paperweight. I can't even get back into the recovery menu. Every time I startup it goes into the boot menu. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Ideapad 100s 14IBR memory upgrade

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
The reason the memory slots are not mentioned in the manual is because there are no memory slots available.  The Ideapad 100s product line comes with the memory soldered directly to the motherboard so it is not socketed and can not be upgraded.  Sorry! 
 
For your reference I have a  link below to the Ideapad 100s specifications. Just click on the + sign to view the full specifications....

Hi.
I bought an Ideapad 100S-14IBR in september 2016 and its battery has been greatly reduced since last year. I could stay unplugged at least 5 hours with internet switched on or 8 hours with everything switched off and low luminosity. Now I struggle to get more than 3 hours with everything off. I tried recalibrating the battery, hasn't proved useful.
 
I haven't abused the battery, I use my computer on average less than once a day, I don't leave it plugged. On my battery report I have 22 000 mWh out of 33 000 mWH design capacity. This is really annoying since I need to bring this computer to study at school but it can barely made it. Does anyone have an explanation ? Otherwise I would like to know if the warranty (which is still active) covers a battery replacement ?  
 
Thanks

Still, no matter how many times reset with the power button, the computer will not cut on. Nothing on the screen and it doesn't even make any noises. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Sometimes, hard disk C might be wiped out completely and I want to enter a factory restoration by using system recovery.I have encountered twice that my old acer and dell laptop that recovery partition is removed, acer is by me accidentally, dell is by some brainless IT people. Thus I can't get the original OS back.I checked on the recovery partition that I have just in case any failure happens on this laptop.However, not only the system restore process (by using NOVO button) does not have the original recovery image, but the disk management shows that recovery partition is 100% free space!!?I have not touched it at all since I bought it last month.I might be wrong about this process of recovering the factory image, so please correct me if that's the thing.I do not want fresh install of windows 10 like the usual way if you want a fresh install.I need to know the procedures of this recovery, does the recovery is pre istalled on my laptop or not?

A:Brand New Ideapad 100s 14IBR battery not charging

Well, The battery most likely is Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) and either have been a production defect; or have not been properly charged at the factory; or have been drained completely, been sitting for a long time, then as a result have suffered damages to the chemical bits inside. You may have to return only the battery to the store (If accessible to remove form outside/If not internal) , unless they tell you to bring something else in addition. Sincerely Cklone.

hi, I just bought a new ideapad 100s-14ibr 5 days ago [4-24-2017], I noticed seomthing about the battery life that gave me a hunch: Usually when unboxing a new laptop smartphone, etc., it comes with 40-70% of charge from the factory as industry practice. My laptop had 0% charge and could not power on until after 35 minutes of charging.(lithium-ion batteries only lose only about 1-2% of charge per month in storage. Usually a lituim-ion battery that loses its charge (or doesnt hold its charge) is defective.) My laptop only holds a charge for 5 hours on 75% brightness. Im concerned as most review sites, testers and many credible sources indicate that this laptop has a 7+ battery life and some have even got uo tp 9 hours of battery time. Please let me know if this is normal, if this battery life of 7+ hours is reached only on lowest brightness, etc. Because one tester indicated they reached 7 hours of battery on highest brightness and another had the same time with 70% brightness looping a video. any help/feedback is very helpful as quickly as possible. I have a small window to return laptop for an excange. i dont want a refund as this machine exceeded my expectations in performance and other areas. But I need a laptop that give me a ChromeBook battery life of 7-8+ hours but the flexability of having Windows 10.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having with the lid bezel.  From the picture I would suspect that either the bezel was slightly mis-aligned during assembly and popped loose in that area or the video cable wasn't seated properly in its wiring channel.  That when opened, tension on the video cable pulled on the screen bezel.  Either case it is a fairly simple and quick repair and should be covered by warranty on a day old machine.
