Pen for new 2018 yoga book c930?

Q: Pen for new 2018 yoga book c930?

Hi, I'm about to order the new yoga book c930, the one with the dual display (lcd + e-ink) setup. However, in my market (Sweden) only the m3 version with 128GB ssd and without pen is available as of now Since this will be mostly a home web browsing 2-in-1 for me I'm fine with the performance and storage limitations but really would like to have a pen for it that works both for the LCD and the e-ink display for notes and sketching. Any hints as to which of all the different lenovo (or third party?) pens available that would work? Is the one that comes with the i5-version available separately? I haven't been able to find any guidance on lenovo.com and local pre-sales customer service didn't have any answer either unfortunately. Any guidance would be highly appreciated!

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.)

Been having some trouble with the fingerprint reader. 1) it has generally been slow in operation. Many times it takes a few times before it works right. I've tried redoing it a few times. Just seems hit or miss. 2) Sometimes after opening the lid the fingerprint reader doesn't turn on.

Is the Precision Pen that comes with the Yoga Book C930 available for purchase? Or will any of the other available pens work with this model (I realize only the original pen will probably connect magnetically).One other question, the pen I recieved didn't come with any replacement tips, will these be available as well?

The new Lenovo Yoga Book c930 with eInk screen is great, but currently the software is far away from its potential:* eink notes have to be explicitly copied to the main screen, no direct handwriting entry* no onenote support on the eink side* no acrobat pdf annotation on eink side* no ebook support yet* etc.Lenovo has already said that they are working on more features, but is there any roadmap or what features to expect?Cheers

I bought C930 13IBK model last month. It worked something wrong.1. did not auto rotate2. when battery fully charged and power line connected, didn't boot (hanging windows logo screen)3. when power line connected and battery fully charged, keyboard didn't work. (power line disconnect & reboot, keyboard do work)  I spent several hours for several days to find & try to fix because above problems are minior functions and can be some setting problems.I phoned service center twice and visited service center and got it was faulty product and certificates for that.I shoud go to the re-saller to exchage new one with that certificates.  Lenovo Vantage said every systems OK but windows device manager said one serial IO I2C host controller had problems.That means Lenovo's quality control standard did not test that. So faulty product can delivered to cutomer.  Customer should spend times & money to fix that problem. Customer shoud think that was bad luck? In that case, the only thing Lenovo did is, judged the customer's complain & print a paper. I cannot understand why customer shoud do all dirty things because of Lenovo's fault.I'll never buy Lenovo again because of quality control and service policy.

I bought my ThinkPad X1 Yoga for around $1600 CAD with 2 years on-site warranty. The Yoga C930 is usually around the same price or more expensive, but the yogadays promotion right now made the base model $200 cheaper even with 2 years on-site warranty. Would you guys say that at $200 cheaper, the Yoga C930 is worth it? It has dual fans and a bigger battery, those seem to be the main advantages.

I recently purchased the Yoga c930 to mainly draw on the go and do artwork in various apps and programs (mainly Photoshop, SketchBook, and Krita). However, this 2 in 1 is unable to download the wacom feel it driver ( I get a message saying that the wacom driver is not compatiable with the computer/tablet, which is wierd because the pen uses wacom aes technology) and I am having trouble with getting pressure sensitivity to work in almost everything I have tried to draw in. I even tried to change setting within the programs themselves, but the only one that really worked was Photoshop. Krita and Sketchbook still have no pressure sensitivity. There is also a Lenovo Pen Settings control panel for pressure sensitivity, but it does not really seem to make a difference in sensitivity when I change the settings there. Any suggestions as to how to get the pressure sensitivity to function properly on this computer would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to return the laptop and get the Yoga 720 13" becuase this computer is really nice otherwise, but I'm starting to think that may be the only option if I want to have a better drawing experience.

I purchased a Lenovo Yoga c930 last week and it got delivered today. I have been experiencing issues with the sleep and power options. As soon as I click the button to eject the pen, the laptop goes into sleep mode where I have to sign in again. The situation gets worse because sometimes the laptop would shut down randomly when the pen is ejected out or it is inserted back into the laptop. Does anyone have a solution for this issue or anyone faced a similar issue? I have checked the power options and I have set the power and sleep option as never.

Hello everyone! So after going back and forth which laptop i wanted i finally ended up getting a Yoga C930 which feels MUCH better compared to the 730 i had for about a day. The only concern i have for it right now is the fan noise is noticeable. I updated all of the drivers and did all of the windows updates, but it seems the fan is much more audible compared to the 730 i had. (I used the windows app and Driver Easy to do this) It's not entirely annoying but i do notice it. I also notice the laptop tends to get a bit warm. I know its only been a few hours but still its something i've noticed.  This is the exact one i purchased from Best Buy I've also noticed the Dolby Atmos Speaker System app apparently isn't compatible with my device? Also looking if anyone has recommendations on which usb c dongle to use so I can connect extra USB, display, and memory card reader? Some of the ones I?ve found on amazon don?t exclusively list if it works on the yoga c930

I received this laptop as a replacememt of my defective yoga 720 the 18 October. After somw days of usage I can finally say that I ve got scammed by Lenovo, who sent me a testing unit with so mant problems! - Wacom pen and touch issues (such as ghosting and deas zones)- TouchPad gets disabled and became uselsss until next reboot. It also feels weird and it is kinda loose and imprecise! -KeyBoard acts weird and there is a noticeable input lag that I just can't stand since I am a programmer. -Hibernation/suspend/who knows who causes the impossibility to Wake up my laptop from sleep. When it happens I can only hard shut it down. - I've found some strange stats in the battery report that makes me think that I've received a testing unit with all of these malfunctionnality. My EMEA casw manager does no longee respond to my emails and I am willing to sens back this laptop and receive a refund or a new replacememt ( BUT NO MORE IDEAPAD LAPTOPS). If someone is contact with Lenovo I can send my case number. This is just unfair. Can't trust this Company. Check my YouTube Channel for the linked problems : https://youtu.be/5_daR-j7CQ8

I bought my wife a Yoga C930 for Christmas. It worked fine for a couple weeks. Then it sat for a few days used and when she went to use it again yesterday, it would not turn on. It should be fully charged as it had been plugged in. When you push the power button, the LED turns on, but the computer does absolutely nothing. It does not boot, or even go to a post screen. The display does not turn on, the fans don't turn on.....nothing. If I hold the power button for about 10 seconds, the led will go out, and it will turn on if I press again, but the computer never boots.  Any suggestions?

Hello, I bought a lenovo yoga c930 laptop yesterday with a FHD screen (1920x1080p) and the first thing I noticed is that all images and videos seem to be a bit blurry and not sharp as would for a 1080p screen. I checked that the screen resolution is set to 1080p and I don't know what else to do, even logos on websites and normal small images you would normally pass by seem very annoying and disappointing to look at. I'm not sure how I'll even manage to watch videos on it (1080p videos definitely don't even look close to 1080).I hope there's something you can tell me to help with this as it is very upsetting where my 10 year old Toshiba laptop that has a way worse screen resolution specs but way better image and video quality.Thanks

I just purchased a Lenovo Yoga C930, and the Pen doesn't charge in the dock unless I push the pen all the way to the bottom of the dock (and only if I'm putting the pen in, not taking it out), and even then it only charges up to 50%.
The battery lasts a while after I do this, and it takes 15 seconds for the battery to charge from 6% to 50%.
The charging contacts on the Pen itself seem straight and fine. 
The first day I used the pen, I used it heavily for a few hours and did not encounter a problem. 
Any suggestions? Is this most likely a problem with the Pen or with the laptop itself?

Lenovo Yoga C930 Impressions: Configuration Details ? 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8550U Processor? Windows 10 Home 64 - Upgraded to Pro? 14" FHD (1920 x 1080) with Dolby Vision? 12GB DDR4 2400MHz? Integrated Intel UHD Graphics 62? Iron Gray? Fingerprint Reader? Rotating Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos Speaker System? 256GB Solid State Drive, PCIe-NVME M.2 Since this is a replacement for the Yoga 920 I?ll use it in my comparison. I did have a Yoga 920 for several months.. The 12GB of RAM is an odd configuration but it is a nice in-between 8 and 16. I wish more manufacturers would offer this. I ordered from Best Buy and I paid $1299 for it. Ordering the exact same configuration direct from Lenovo would have been $1625. Not sure the reason for the massive price difference... I got the Iron Gray this time but I usually opt for silver (mica for the C930). It does attract fingerprints and smudges but for some reason it?s not as bad as I remember the Lenovo black being. I didn;t dig the light colored KB kets on the mica color so that was my main reason for going with the Iron Gray this time. So quick impressions: Screen Wow! For a 1080p screen this thing is fabulous. Brightness is improved over what i remember my 920 having but it still is not extremely bright. Speed It?s fast and snappy. I see no issues whatsoever and it?s on par with similarly equipped machines, as expected. The SSD is pretty fast. See screens... Read more

Have a new Yoga C930 and the edges are sharp and cutting into my palms. Is this a defect or perhaps a design flaw? Using a palm rest/roll is not a solution. Can the edges be fixed or is there a type of case or cover that Lenovo can provide to cover the edges?

A:Yoga C930 sharp edges

I put a vinyl cover on my. On Amazon look for vinyl skins. They are about 30 bucks, but they come off with no sticky back and have prevented two serious scratches on my other computer, so I use it for protection. If you place it a little lower, the vinyl will cover the edges and it won't be so sharp.However, there is a hard shell cover from iPearl mCover again, on Amazon that I insist on purchasing for all of our computers. The problem is, the company doesn't release these for about 6 months after the new model comes out...So I wait patiently.I wasn't going to put a skin on my new C930 because I love the color and look, but I had to to protect the computer from that palm mark you get when using it.

Been going along fine. Updated a new battery f/w and was successful. Opted to installed OneKey Optimizer to calibrate the battery after the battery f/w update. However after install of OneKey Optimizer now I get a BSOD. I cannot restore from Acronis backups (externally), I cannot use the Win10 Repair PC option as every avenue takes me down the Bitlocker Recovery Key (to get going again) path. I didn't know this was enabled on a new PC and there's nothing about a key or password stored anywhere. Now it's a paperweight. I've seen similar when a system change is made with encryption running. There was a way to correct or change something in the UEFI/BIOS settings I thought. This was with another brand of PC though. Anyway to get past this even if I have to reset and lose everything?

Hey folks, I got the Yoga c930 and so far I'm loving it, save one issue--my shift key feels kind of loose (but sticky) and makes a different noise if you accidently hit it the wrong way.  Since it's not a pc-breaking issue, I don't want to have to send it in unless something else goes wrong, but I was wondering if anyone has tried any DIY maintenance on Yoga Keyboards.  I'm worried I might break a clip since even though their are videos for the Yoga 710 on YT, I don't know if they switched up the mechanism for this generation.  It sitll registers the click, so functionally--no issue, but it feels like a defective key that could just completely break out of the blue.

Hi all, I have a brand-new C930 here. It is an exchange and I know for a fact that the previous one didn't have any of these issues. This is pretty much out of the box, the only thing I did was install Intel's updated BT driver. The reason I did it was that the WiFi speed was way too low and I suspected interference with BT. After installing the driver, the issue went away immediately. Now, onto what's happening. 1. When starting or waking up from prolonged sleep, after logging in, when the system loads, the speakers produce a series of pops, sometimes five, sometimes four. I can record it, if needed. I know for a fact that the sound comes from the speakers, because when muted none of this happens. The unit came with Alexa installed for some reason (the previous one didn't have it), so I removed it -- no difference. 2. The fan runs pretty much nonstop without any CPU or GPU load. I loaded BIOS defaults -- no result. here's some info:  Device make:YOGA C93013IKB Product Number:81C4 BIOS:8GCN30WW I am well within my two weeks to return to BestBuy, but if we can fix this, I'll be happy to keep it.

A big part of why I purchased the C930 was for its 4K Dolby Vision screen. However, I can't seem to be able to view any content in HDR. I followed the guidelines set forth from this Microsoft support page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4040263/windows-10-hdr-advanced-color-settings There are no options for HDR in the display settings and dxdiag shows the screen as not supporting HDR. More importantly, nothing I view seems to show up in HDR. I've watched Youtube videos through Chrome, Firefox, and Edge, and videos through the Netflix app, and none of them look like they're in HDR. I have all of the latest updates according to Windows update and Lenovo Vantage. The included Dolby Vision app has 3 settings but they don't seem to make a difference. Is there some way to enable HDR on this laptop? Thanks!

Hi there, I unpacked my brand new Yoga C930 this morning and tried to enter the BIOS (UEFI) settings through the Novo Key (Fn + Power). The C930 had been configured and ordered at the German Lenovo Shop run by Digital River. I was shocked to see that the machine prompts for a system / supervisor password for the BIOS. I did a thorough reasearch (online manual, misc. forums) for something like a default password. I even gave it a few tries using different passwords I figured out myself, but obviously didn't succeed. Does anyone know if there's a universal password that Lenovo use for end-of-line testing or customization of built-to-order devices? To talk to the official support, I'd have to wait another two days till Monday, I'm afraid. Unlike in the U.S., Lenovo doesn't provide any help to the European customers during the weekend. Any idea, folks? Thanks in advance. Kind regards and all the best for 2019m_r_j_m

Are you talking about calling Lenovo for warranty problems, or this forum?  If calling, "Think" products are handled separately, but X1C and X1 Yoga should be the same as each other.  If this forum, you are most likely to get the most help on products that are most widely distributed.
