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.)

I just got my Lenovo ideapad z510 from the repair shop and it came back with literally all programs gone - energy manager and co. But my data was still intact. I downloaded a bunch of drivers and programs from the Lenovo support site and began installing. System restarted normally, and next thing, the one key recovery screen came up. I didn't initiate any recovery. I have a lot - and I mean A LOT - of important data on my laptop. Why the hell would I want to wipe them off? I need to start windows normally without this recovery thingy. Please, please, I need help skipping this thing.

Greetings! I have a Lenovo Z510 8GB Ram, Core i7, 1tb hdd, which I purchased less than a year ago. Off late I've been experiencing major battery problems. It started off with the laptop randomly shutting off without any warning, even though there was considerable life left, for eg. 90 pct or so. This became worse when the laptop didn't start up at all, until I plugged in the charger. The only way I can now operate the laptop is by connecting to charger, but the battery still remains at 0 pct, doesn't charge. The battery light keeps blinking red, Also, I have used an application BatteryInfoView to analyze this, and it says teh battery still has 83 percent of its original capacity, However I receive a message everytime on startup saying the battery is weak and needs to be replaced. What can I do about this? Thanks.

I have a laptop which is mentioned above. Had it for almost 3 years now and suddenly shut off while I was using it. It would not charge nor it would turn on. Tried the power reset thing which holds the power button for multiple seconds but to no avail.  Then went to a service center saying motherboard burned up. Such a shame since I really like the laptop and I spent  lot of money for it since I bought the i7 core version. I was hesitant to buy other brands before actually purchasing this lenovo laptop. I have a netbook (not a lenovo brand) which I had for 7 years now. But my almost 1000dollars z510 laptop broke and it hasn't been a FULL 3 YEARS?  WTH LENOVO! And motherboard replacement is VERY expensive. I'm really STRESSED about this. And ALL my files are there. Photos, work documents etc. I can;t stressed enough about how disappointed I am.

I have tried every conceivable fix for it from the forums here and none has worked. The problem that I am having is that the battery is stuck at 99% while charging and when it is off charge it will stay on for half an hour and the shut off hard without warning, it has caused me to lose progress in work. The battery gauge reset is no longer working either as it was on for hours and just kept showing 99%. I would appreciate a response back. This seems to be a problem with this make of laptop as far as Ican see.

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.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi!2 years ago when I encountered the battery problem on my z510. I only learned about the solution only just last year, after a few months of the release of the said solution. Just a few days ago, it happened again. It started by showing that my battery is weak, then just yesterday, whenever I unplugged my laptop from its charged state, it will just automatically shutdown, just like what happened on my first encounter if the problem 2 years ago. I tried to use the solution, but what it shows is that the firmware of my battery is already updated. Is there any ways in which I could downgrade or uninstall the firmware? Or is there another solution for my problem? Thanks alot.

I bought a Lenovo Z510 a year ago with the following configuration... Operating SystemWindows 8.1 Pro with Media Center 64-bit (I got the laptop with Windows 8.0 and I installed 8.1 Pro myself).CPUIntel Core i7-4702MQ @ 2.20GHz 52 CHaswell 22nm TechnologyRAM8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)MotherboardLENOVO VIUU4 (U3E1)GraphicsGeneric PnP Monitor ([email protected])Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Lenovo)2048MB NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M (Lenovo) 39 CStorage931GB Seagate ST1000LM014-SSHD-8GB (SATA) 40 COptical DrivesPLDS DVD-RW DU8A5SHAudioRealtek High Definition Audio The issue I am facing is that my laptop used to shutdown when the battery was charging . I would be working on something and the laptop would just switch off. The place where I bought it from replaced the charger once, the motherboard a second time and the third time they replaced the charger again at which point the problem seemed to have stopped. This was about 7 months ago in which time I haven't faced that problem again. Recently, I was playing a game on my laptop and the power was plugged in and the battery was charging from 15% and the laptop switched off. This happens whenever I run the game and the laptop is plugged in to power supply. However, if I run the game on just battery itself, I face no shutdown issues.  Can anyone help me? 

A:Lenovo Z510 Shutdown issue

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Have you ever checked the temperatures to see if that is the cause of the shutdown ?    Use the free utility HWMonitor to see what the temperatures are when gaming with it plugged in and when gaming on battery only.  The program comes in two versions.  The first will install on your hard drive.  The second is a compressed version that can be unzipped and then copied onto a flash drive for a portable version. 
 
Here is a link to that free program......
 
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
 
Since the laptop has been in use for 7 months, if you never blew out the dust from the fan and heat sink you might give that a try as well.  Accumulated dust will increase temperatures and reduce the fan's performance.   Just use short bursts of compressed air in the intake and exhaust vents several times.  Avoid long blasts as they may damage the fan.  Cans of compressed air can be purchased from any computer or electronics store.

I have had this laptip for about 4 months and this started a week or so ago. I have stopped getting warnings that my batter is low, these used to occur at 10 and 7% battery life. This wouldn't be a big issue but the battery life indicator is not accurate. It shows at a constant 80+% and the next thing I know my computer shuts down for a low battery. Please help me fix this.

Hi all,  My z510 is a couple of years old now. Tonight it is refusing to charge and when it's attached to AC power the battery remains at 5%, while the icon looks like it's charging normally. I've restarted a few times and tried updating the battery firmware, but it was up to date already. I'm running the most recent version of Windows 10. Anybody know of a solution? Thanks!

Hello,

I noticed that many people have found solutions to their problems in these forums. I hope I get mine fixed too.

Well I bought a new laptop Lenovo Z510 with 16GB of RAM already and it seems that I am dealing with tons of problems. I got it back to warranty they changed the RAM and the situation seems to have improved significantly.

But even with that I still have faced several BSODs and a lot of problems in the event viewer plus to random crashes for some some apps like firefox.

I attached the files hoping that we get this one sorted.
Thank you very very much.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
If the battery is no longer available from Lenovo then I would suggest you search the Internet for sellers in your country that still offer this battery for sale.

Hello,I am planning to upgrade RAM of my Lenovo Z510 (Model 20287, MTM: 59400189) from current 8GB to 16GB.  Product Overview  page is showing it has x2 DDR3 slots:   Standard memory:   DDR3-1600/1333MHz SODIMM 2 (max 16 GB) But, in ubuntu,  sudo lshw -class memory is showing it has 4 slots. Two filled with 4GB modules and other two are empty.  Using CPU-z in Windows, is showing nothing in SPD tab. (grayed screen)  Crucial System Scanner is showing it has only two RAM slots, both occupied by 4GB modules.  Now, I am confused. How many slots does this system actually has? I know one option is to open the panel and see it there. But, disassembly of this system is much complicated, so I don't want to take risk just for counting slots.  Can someone help me with actual number of memory slots this laptop has, so that I can plan upgrade accordingly.  Thanks.
