Lenovo Flex 15 14" Heat

Q: Lenovo Flex 15 14" Heat

Hello everyone!I just bought a flex 5 i7 8th generation laptop from microsoft canada's website. So, far I have only done some normal use and it has been running quite hot. I can't even put it on my lap for more than 5-10 mins. Can anyone suggest what might be an issue or is there anyone else also having the sams issue? I do hear the fan everyone once in a while but mostly the fan is quite but the bottom of the laptop is getting really hot.

I am currently using a Lenovo Flex 3 1470 and the keyboard for it stopped working and now I can't type any numbers or activate any function keys. I have spilled tea on my laptop and got it wet in the past so I am now looking to get my keyboard replaced.  I have managed to find some Flex 2 14 inch US keyboards on eBay for less than $20 that look exactly the same as the one on my laptop, but I can't be certain unless someone confirms.  Are the 2 keyboards the same?

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

Hey guys, first time here and I just want to inform you that I'm not a genius so please talk like you're talking to a 9years old kid..

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.

I have a new gateway notebook with an 1.6ghz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 cpu... ive recently checked (10 mins ago) my temps inside this thing and my cpu core temp is running at 160F. an insanely high temp. is there a way to improve cooling in this thing without underclocking (im a overclocker not an underclocker) ive never seen it this hot until now...any help would be great i curently have the computer sitting on a honeywell fan to keep it cool... and im down to 110F yay! but this is no solution
 

A:HEAT HEAT HEAT Gateway heat woes

Yes, that converts to a bit over 71 degrees Centigrade... and is getting to the edge of its range... You will have earlier failure.
That model simply does not have the cooling system you need with three of four fans to move the air out.
If you have dogs or cats, clean the guts of the case with Dust Off every week... to remove the dust and hair.
But there isn't much help for you. Lower priced laptops never make good gaming machines.

Hi I have a Lenovo Y50-70 with i7 4710HQ, GTX960M 4GB and a 12 GB Memory. Im experiancing extreme framerate drops while gaming.The CPU temperature is around 80 and never go beyond 85 degree celsius.But the GPU temperature goes upto 95 max and mostly stays around 90. The GPU core clock stays mostly at 540MHz. I tried fully updating the graphics drivers and Windows. Ive tried this on Windows 8.1 and 10.The service centre guys tried repasting CPU and GPU and cleaning the fans and heatsink.The thermal paste they used was Stars DRG 102. There was a slight improvement after repasting but not so much.They also tried replacing the mother board but that didnt seem to work either.Before i tried these the temps on both CPU and GPU were as high as 100. These temps for the GPU are pretty high right?( Totally confused because some say GPUs normaly go that high some say they don't)What are your temps on y50 70?Any help would be really appreciated.

So Yoga 2 11 is having an overheating issue. Anytime I take the laptop off charge it feels like the battery heats up and then Windows slows down and freezes to a stutter. Other times the laptop comes to a stutter when in a warm environment as well.     I always have to be extremely careful not to let my Yoga 2 11 run hot and it really limits its use. Does anyone else have overheating problems with this laptop?

This is the absolute the worst Lenovo laptop i have ever used. I have used Thinkpad in the past, and from that experience, I decided to buy Y series laptop. I have UHD screen, which is stuck at 48Hz. I feel betrayed that laptop doesn't support 60Hz, this information was not mentioned anywhere when i purchased this from Lenovo back in 2015. I recently started gaming and trying to see what kind of framerates i was getting and this is absolute grabage laptop. The second problem is that the laptop heat dissipation system is very poor, the laptop gets really hot even when i am browsing internet, or watching or listening to media. I would advise against buying Y series.

A:Lenovo u41-70 laptop heat sink issue

hi Sriharshahonne,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
When you power up the machine, can you observe the temps of the CPU/GPU by using HWInfo / HWmonitor or similar utility while the unit is idle and under load (normal temps should be between 50C-70C on light to medium load @ 24C-28C room temperature). However, if the CPU and GPU are fully stressed, the temps will hit around 80C-90C
 
Check this Lenovo U41-70 review
 - Link to picture (temp readings using HWInfo)
 
if the temp. is too hot and you feel uncomfortable & can barely use the unit on your lap then you may want to consider contacting the lenovo helpdesk to report the issue or the place of purchase (if it's still possible to exchange the unit).

Problem: Press power button, turns on and no display. Press power button to turn off then press to turn on, doesn't turn on but power button light is flashing. Plug in the charger and turn the Flex 10 off and on again, still not on. Tapping the keyboard, touchpad hoping something happens, no. Give it a couple more seconds then it turns on. Lenovo loading sign comes up then goes to blue screen saying "collecting data because there was an error then will restart for you", restarts. "There was an error with loading Windows. Given two options; option 1: Choose a recovery setting or option 2: restart". Both options have been clicked before and nothing has happened. This time tried choosing option 1 again and the screen starts flickering and Flex 10 turns off. Flex 10 has been opened from the back to check if memory, HDD and all else is correctly in place.  Any solutions? Could the battery be the problem?Is it worth replacing it altogether? Thanks,Scott

I am looking to get a decent stylus so I can take better notes using my Flex 4, but I have found that none of the active stylus on Amazon say that they work specifically for the Flex 4. I contacted support through web chat earlier and they informed me that if it says Lenovo Yoga 900, it should work. If it's marked for the Yoga 900s, would it still work? Does anyone happen to have a suggestion for a stylus that will be primarily used for taking notes and writing in general?

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,

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.I got a Lenovo Flex 2 15 a while ago. Over these three months I've tried to find information wether this laptop supports a stylus to draw with to begin with, and which models would those be.After searching in forums, sent pms to Lenovo support via Facebook and being utterly ignored, contacting support of styluses makers (Adonit for example) I always get the same copy pasted get X stylus for Ipad and X for *other lenovo models, like Yoga700, etc* which do not seem to list my model among them. Perhaps it is because of the year or because Lenovo Flex 2 is not being made anymore, which I noticed after getting it, sadly. So I ask once again... perhaps this time someone will know! Does the Lenovo Flex 2 15 support Wacom or any other brand styluses to draw on the screen with? If so, which is the model I should go for? Thank you again for any answer that you could provide.

My wife's Flex 14 stopped charging. I am thinking that battery is old and need replacement (I hope), but when I look on the Lenovo site, I do not see the battery. I tried contacting Lenovo, who argued with me that the battery is sealed (wrong), but finally send me to Emcompass parts. They looked up the serial number and was able to correctly identify the computer, but could not find the part number for the battery. They then transfer me to Geek Squad for some reason. I did see a few battery on sale at Amazon, but they appear to be greatly smaller in capacity (2200 instead of 3560 ma). Anyone know how I can order the higher capacity battery or at least locate the actual part number ? Is this normal, I never had issue getting batteries for my Dells. Paul

Does anyone have a Lenovo - Flex 4 1470? (Win10/64bit) I bought mine in July 2016 and yesterday when I signed on I got a pop-up from Lenovo telling me about a "critical" Lenovo update. I am pretty sure if was referring to BIOS update = v.0vcn.22ww / 120 MB.
I clicked for it to install and then another pop-up saying something about it (possibly) changing binaries, etc. I didn't know what that was all about and so I cancelled the downlod.
Today I phoned Lenovo and spoke to a woman who said "they" didn't recommend downloading/installing updates to BIOS unless I was having problem with this laptop.
As I asked, does anyone else have a Lenovo Flex 4.1470? If so, did you get this critical update notice and if you did, did you install it?
I am 81 years old and know nothing about these things and wonder if I should just forget about downloading the BIOS update? Or whether it MUST be downloaded for this Lenovo to operate properly.
Thanks for any help.

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.
