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 AllI have one of these laptops and i have 2 questions. 1) What battery life should i expect from it during basis tasks like just surfing the www?2) Can this battery be replaced by me when it no longer holds decent charge? If so, is there any instruction how to do this and where can i buy a battery from? I can't find any info on the net, perhaps as this is quite a new model (?) Many thanks

Hi,I have recently bought a 320s which came with a 128GB M.2 SSD. Now, I have installed a Samsung Evo 250GB SSD in the SATA interface and figured I'd use the stock 128GB for storage. For less confusion, I removed the 128GB, inserted the 250GB, installed Windows 10, and refitted the 128GB afterwards.  The Windows 10 installation works fine. However, I can't see the 128GB disk - it doesn't show in BIOS or Disk Management in Windows.  Is the 320s not capable of running SATA and M.2 disks at the same time, or is this a BIOS / software misconfiguration? I have installed the latest BIOS update, Intel Storage drivers and so on.Thanks for any input!

When going in to BIOS the Boot Mode is greyed out and locked to UEFI. I've updated to the latest BIOS but alas still no option to change. Am I missing something or have Lenovo locked it out (which would be VERY iritating!). I've disabled secure boot, disabled fast boot and disabled the OS support but still no legacy boot. I want to boot from a USB stick but its just not showing up. I've tried the Novi button but all I get is the Window boot loader. Any ideas?

My laptop freezes regularly (a couple of times a day). The freezes are completely random and not dependent on any installed software (according to my testing). When the computer freezes I have to hold the power button to shut it down - no other functions are responsive. I ran a hardware scan and nothing showed up. The BIOS and all drivers are up-to-date. I installed CoreTemp and monitored the temperature at the time of freezes and the computer did not seem to be overheating. I have sent it in to Lenovo twice already for repair. The first time they said they found a defective component on the mainboard and replaced it. But in doing so, they disconnected all I/O ports on the right hand side of the computer and didn't test it before returning it to me. The second repair was to reconnect the stuff they disconnected. However, now the freezes are reoccurring and I would like to know if anyone has a solution to this that works before I send it back to Lenovo for a third "repair". This problem is very difficult to reproduce as it's random and so it will be hard for Lenovo to fix it and I have little faith in them to do so.

Hi there!  Since the battery life of 320S is less than stellar, I tried to find ways of enhancing it beyond the beaten paths. When examining which batteries are compatible to mine, I noticed that besides three two-cell types (7.2V),- 5B10M49825- 5B10M49823- 5B10M49822 (this is the one the laptop came with)three three-cell units (11.4V ) were offered as possible replacements. These are:- 5B10M49826- 5B10M49824- 5B10M49821 My question is:What effect does the change of the battery voltage has on the battery life? Has anybody tried this change and what were the results?I think this strongly depends on how the onboard voltage is generated: A very primitive voltage regulator would simply turn the excess voltage into heat and would have no effect on the battery life.A more sophisticated regulator would detect the incoming voltage and could (the conservation of power applies) turn additional voltage (e.g. 11.4V) into additional current at a lower voltage (e.g. 7.4V), yielding a longer battery life. Can Lenovo say how the onboard voltage regulators will react to an aleviated input voltage ? can the battery life be extended this way?Has anybody already tried this conversion and if so, what was the result? Best regards and thanks in advance,Matthias

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

1: When the screen shows a dark picture, then when I immediately switch back to a mostly white picture, it's far duller, and gradually (over the course of about 10 seconds), the white screen lightens more and more. I presume this is a battery saving feature. Can I disable it somehow? 2: Fan issues. Although the fan is quiet, I'd rather it be quieter still (or even silent). From previous experience, I know Lenovo tends to (heavily) err on the side of caution, but I'd rather be able to control the fan speeds more directly. Can I somehow half the fan speed or by some other arbitray amount? I'll keep an eye on temperatures, and I know all the risks.

Hi Lenovo Family,I am Emre from Turkey. I have a question. I just bougth a V33015IKB and installed necessary softwares like Vantage and finished all the updates.

I recently purchased a ideapad 700 for home use. However, when the conservation mode is turned on, i noticed the notebook sometimes charged to 100% by itself without consent. Then I would have to disable the conservation mode, and then re-enable again the function so the battery would deplete its battery to 60%. This is not often happening everyday, but it did happened some often and it is annoying since it is wasting the charge cycle of the battery. Any help?

I do have Lenovo Settings installed, but under battery there is no option to enable conservation mode. So how can I enable battery conservation mode?

Hello, I'm having an issue that's been bothering me since a couple of days ago. During the first month, my 1.5 month old YOGA 520 14IKB battery icon displayed 8-9 hours when fully charged. However, I had to work with the laptop plugged in for a while, so I activated the conservation mode. It charged the battery up to 60% and then stopped it. I use that configuration for about 2 weeks and then some days ago I disabled the conservation mode in order to have more juice while unplugged. However, now the estimate time for the battery to run out reduced drastically to about... 3hours!!! I tried to discharge it until 5% and the charge to 100% but that didn't fix it... I also read that could be a problem of outdated drivers but all my drivers are up to date (according to the Lenovo site). There are, however, updates for the graphics cards on Intel and NVIDIA sites, but the Intel tool says that Lenovo has a custom driver for the UHD 620 and probably that is also the case with NVIDIA. Could anyone, by chance, give me any tip on how I can restore my battery time? Thank you.

I got a Lenovo 320S a few days ago and started it up plugged in. Unfortunately at 100% it says it only has like 2 hours and 15 minutes remaining. It goes through the first 20% pretty quickly but then it slows down and goes up to 4 hours or so. I just left it there for a few minutes or so at 33% and it went down to 5%. Is the battery still stuck in Ship Mode? It's supposed to last for 7 hours. I don't think I can remove the battery and I have already tried an apparent solution where you press the power button for 90 seconds with the PC turned off and then you plug it in again. That does not solve the problem. I'll need to be carrying this PC around so it's pretty urgent.
