Q: MX150 in Ideapad 320S is reducing clock speed

Hi,the Geforce MX150 is reducing it's clock speeds, after it goes over 61°C.Changing to "prefer max performance" in the nvidia settings didn't change anything.Also the memory speed is only 40.1GB/s instead of the rated 48.1GB/s.Any ideas?

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.)

Do you know when the ideapad 720s (with 8th gen cpu) with the GeForce mx150 will be released in the UK (if at all)?I can see it on several european websites and also on the US store but I cannot see it on the UK store. I have tried to contact sales through chat but they are unsure. I need to buy a laptop soon and dont know whether to buy the older version with the 940mx, or wait for the newer version with the mx150 (which is what I would rather do, hopefully before black friday sales) but that would depend on the release date.Would appreciate if someone from lenovo could give me a specific date?Thanks in advance

Hi all, Firstly am new to the forum and have tried to search for my issue and not been able to find an answer.  Today I wanted to do a complete reset of my laptop. I restarted my laptop, whilst holding shift to bring up the reset options. I opted for a completed reset and deletetion of all files. Once done I was greeted by the log on page but the only user was 'other user'. So with no way to log on I went onto safemode to create another user which didn't work. I also tried removing other user and enabling admin, which didn't work. I've tried the repair image option on the reset page and it says admin not enabled.  Any advice would be more than welcome. Thanks in advance.  Will

Hello, I understand that the specifications on this site say that the 14" Ideapad 320s comes with 4GB of RAM soldered on the motherboard and 4GB of RAM in a DDR4 slot. My question is, can a 16GB DDR4 RAM card be inserted into the DDR4 slot on the motherboard? If not, can you explain why, for a reason other than it is what the specifications say? Just because the laptop isn't sold with more than 8GB of RAM doesn't necessarily mean that it is the maximum RAM that this machine can hold. 64-bit machines running Windows 10 Pro can support up to 512 GBs of RAM, unless there is a BIOS limitation. Thanks.

A:IdeaPad 320s International Warranty

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't give you a 100% answer, but from what I can see on the support site the 320s does not have an IWS option, but other machines certainly do.
 
Going to SUPPORT above, entering IdeaPad 320s and then checking IWS, there is no phone list, and no offer to enter a serial number.  Doing the same thing with a Yoga 920 does produce an international contact list.  Using a ThinkPad model # asks for a SN, and will presumably offer a contact list once that's entered.
 
FWIW,
Z.

Hi guys, I own an ideapad 320s 15IKB. the laptop has worked wonderfully for me as a student and im able to get my work done quite easily. However a day ago a problem with my screen arose. Towards the center at the bottom left there is a bright white spot about 2-3 mm in diameter, now i called lenovo about this and they said it would be covered if there was no external damage to the device, the problem is that 3 months prior the corner of the bottom cover of the laptop cracked leaving a fairly large hole, i called lenovo about this as well months prior and of course accidental damage is not covered in the warranty.My worry is that lenovo will not cover my screen repair because of this cover damage that occurred 3 months prior. A picture of the damage of the cover is provided. If anyone can help me mediate this situation id greatly appreciate it.

Hi, It's a strange issue. FullHD : 1920 x 1080HalfHD (HD) : 1280 x 720 My Windows display properties are set to FullHD.DirectX diagnostics also show it as FullHD. However, as strange as it may seem, the output is not FullHD. The best known way for me to test was to go to browsers that "show my screen resolution". They are accurate and I have been using it for quite some time now, being a web developer that I am.Now, all of those websites refer the screen resolution as 1280x720. Another way to check the resolution is to pull out the browser developer tools, drag to change the browser width and check the changing screen resolution. Can anyone with a similar model confirm this behaviour?Any suggestions or tools that I can use to check the screen output instead of just relying on the browsers?

I was just wondering whether anyone else has experienced the same issue or might have a view on what caused it? I spoke to a friend of mine who works with computers and he suggested it might be caused by heat damage?
