Lenovo n22 Chromebook Recovery Mode

Q: Lenovo n22 Chromebook Recovery Mode

Hi, I just purchased my Lenovo N22-20 Chromebook from Amazon. However, I am having problems getting into Recovery Mode using the instructions published here https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1080595?hl=en-GB&source=genius-rts. When I press and hold esc + refresh, then press the power button (for about half a second)- it immediately shutsdown my chromebook, it doesn't go into recovery mode. I tried this sequence with the chromebook off and it does nothing. I tried the sequence before and after logging in too. I also tried esc + refresh on it's own as some posts suggested just those two keys. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a different set of keystrokes that need to be used with a Lenovo N22-20? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

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.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi, The chromebook powers up ok and then displays a failure message, that it couldn't find a valid boot. Failure message recommends a systems recovery. After many failed attempts I managed to create two different USB boot sticks with the Atheros recovery image installed. These are recogisied by the systems and a recovery starts. The recovery fails with no diagnostics, just a recommendation to contact support. As this was my sons computer for University, we have purchased another chromebook for him. I would like to fix this unit if possible, for my daughter to use for her school work. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hello,                                              Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!Just hit Esc + Refresh and unit will reboot. You will see a screen that tells you OS verification is disabled. That?s the recovery screen. From there you can reboot into developer mode by pressing Ctrl + D.Note: that doing this will wipe all data from your device. Basically, the HP Chromebook 11 will reformat your storage space and set you up with a fresh version of Chrome OS with developer privileges. Once you log in with your Google account info, all of your settings, apps, and extensions will be re-downloaded, so there?s not much risk involved, but you will lose any files in your downloads directory, so make sure to back them up if you need them.Hope this answers your query, If you have any queries please reply back to me.Have a great day!

Hello, I have a Lenovo 11e chromebook.I am trying to figure out the Auto Update Expiration for it.  Normally, I can get this from https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=enIf you look through there, you can see there are a few mentions of Lenovo 11e with different date based on it's generation.  How can I figure out its generation?Lenovo.com's warranty lookup says its model number is 20DU0003US and its warranty expired 2015-09-04.  I have not been able to use that infromation to look this up.  I have been looking at listings on Lenovo's site and Amazon for the various 11e's trying to compare them to what my model has: "Intel Celeron N2930 processor (1.83GHz)
4.0GB RAM
Google Chrome
11.6in 1366x768
Integrated HD Graphics
Bluetooth 4.0
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2X2 AC
4 Cell Lithium-Ion" I have not been able to find matches for any generation.  It seems sorta close to 1st gen, but it is not the same.Any help would be appricated.  Thank you.

Has any one out in ChromebookLand been able to use the acclaimed system to show picture full screen from sets of jpg files? Due to the puny memory capacity, and difficult to work with external SD card slot, I tried to connect a Sandisk Media drive. The Media drive connects very well, but the display operations of pictures is just not professional.  The keystrokes are quasi not functional or not present.  When giving the show, I need to waste time explaing the customer what to do, and the 'slides' are not full screen, but small.  The colors ARE GREAT, but that is about it. As an aisde, any one ever wonder why the letters are in lower case????  My 5 year old asked me.

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Just something that we as a schoolboard found out about these devices, is that they use a magnet to sense when the lid is closed.  This issue that this causes is that if you have the devices stacked on top of each other that the magnet from the device below will stop the top one from turning on.  Some of our techs had them stacked while they were trying to enroll a large number of devices.  This is just an FYI.

Umm... Hello? Is this thing on? Okay, here it goes. I wanted to share my experiences so far with my new Lenovo C330 Chromebook. Let me start off first by saying, this is my first Chromebook. Previously, I had been using 64-bit Intel Core laptops that I ended up wiping Windows off of and installing some flavor of Linux or another. I am a one-click, out-of-the-box type of user, so distros such as Ubuntu and EndlessOS did me just right. As for the Lenovo Chromebook C330, I love it. Although the touch screen display isn't as sensitive as other touch screen displays I've used (it doesn't take too kindly to a capacitative stylus, the ones with the rubber nib, unless you press hard which means I guess I will just be using my finger after all *sigh*), and the SD card sticks way too far out of the slot, I can get used to these things.
