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.

I bought an IdeaPad U330 Touch a few months ago, I always noticed it had a pretty bad WiFi reception and overall functionality, the connection drops quite often at 4 or less bars of signal, I tried fixing this by toggling max performance on the power options, this did not work.I tried installing the most recent drivers and all the official supported software, as well as the most recent intel wireless drivers, neither of which made things better.Performance was equally poor on Linux, clarifying that the issue is not with the software, but the hardware. I recently thought about upgrading the wireless card, which I wouldn't have to do if Lenovo would employ care in choosing the hardware that goes into their products, but apparently that's simply asking too much.The card I chose was an Intel 7260ac dual band 5ghz, which is literally the upgraded version of the card I currently have in my laptop.To my surprise that card is not supported. In fact, no 5ghz card is supported on this laptop.This is because of Lenovo policy to only whitelist a few(4) cards, if you try to run your laptop with a non whitelisted card, it won't even boot up, you get a "Unautherized card, please power off and remove it" message.Oh and by the way, my laptop package did not come with a list of the supported parts, I had to find the official list online on the technical manual, which apparently does not come with the laptop itself. So I'm left wi...

Hi Sight I was wondering if you managed to find a solution as I'm dealing with the same issue. Thanks for mentioning the technical documentation, without this I would have had no clue where to start. So these are the 4 supported cards that you mentioned: WLAN WiFi 2x2 BGN+BT4.0 Intel 7260BN 2x2BN+BT PCIE HMC WLAN (U330/U330 Touch/U430/U430 Touch) 20200412 NWLAN Intel Wifi 2x2 BGN(tech ready) Intel 2200N MOW M PCIE NB HMC WLAN (U330/U330 Tpuch) 20200048WLAN Non-Intel Wifi 2x2 ABGN+BT 4.0 combo Cbt BCM943228HMB 2x2ABGN+BT4.0 HMC WLAN (U330/ U330 Touch/U430/U430 Touch) 20200221 NWLAN Liteon WB222 2x2ABGN+BT4.0 HMC WLAN (U330/U330 Touch/U430/U430 Touch) 20200225 N You wrote that none of them support the 5ghz band, but is this really the case? I checked the last two and they might be ok. I'll do some more research and see if I can order one of them. Cheers

Hi, I bought this laptop December 2015 and to my surprise with a very mild usage the hinge has broken about 20 days ago. It is my only laptop and I also work part-time on this. I am really discomforted now. The hinge was always dodgy as it would rock a little but I gave it the benefit of doubt as this happens with quite a lot of laptops but I never imagined that being such a costly laptop, something like this would happen to my laptop. I contacted Lenovo and the assistant said that he will look into the issue and will email me a copy of the issue, but that never happened. I wonder why. I am not sure what else to do than raise a query here. Thanks,Renovatio66

Hi - new to the forum but I see others have had this problem.  The laptop has suddenly developed this fault (left hand side of the screen/hinge coming away).  We  have had the laptop just over two years (John Lewis purchase so we are over the warranty perioid).  I am trying to find out if it can be repaired and who I should take it or send it to. Have approached local computer company (independent) and a company at this website http://www.lenovorepairer.co.uk/ to see if either can do it and how much it would cost.  Has anyone asked Lenovo directly to do repair and can it be done? There seems to be a general fault which others have experienced and commented on - our laptop has been used very carefully so really disappointed with this fault.  I doubt I would get any joy from complaining to Lenovo but is it worth a try?Any comments and experiences welcome.

The hinges on my computer were askew, so I sent my computer to the service center. After 3 weeks, they returned my computer to me and told me that the top "chassi" and the bottom cover have been replaced. Not sure what they meant, because the people that fixed my computer were not there at the store to explain it to me, but I'm assuming that it's the top and bottom cover of my computer. I was told that the hardware and the software are still intact, because they didn't have to alter anything during the reparation of my computer. The first thing I noticed when I started using my computer again is that it is very slow. It makes that "thinking" clicking sound all the time, even when I'm not using the computer (No programs/files open, long after the computer's startup). The system was VERY slow. It was laggy and irresponsive most of the time. I deleted multiple useless files and download new antivirus software to make sure that my computer is clean. The computer is no longer laggy, but the "thinking" sound is still there (it's there all the time).  The second thing I noticed is how my touchpad didn't respond to my click. I can move the cursor around perfectly fine, but I cannot click. Neither with a tap on the touchpad nor with an actual click on the touchpad. The touchpad registers my touch, but not my click :/ Does this have anything to do with the aforementioned hardware/software/harddrive/drivers? (My computer terminology is terrible, sorry). Thank you.&nb... Read more

Dear Lenovo Team, I have the same hinge problem with a lot of users already reported here. I have purchased my Lenovo u330 touch notebook in 2014 July in Turkey and it's still under warranty. I've never dropper or caused any other physical damage on the notebook. The left hinge was broken off during the normal usage (by opening the lid). Last week i've sent the notebook to the Lenovo Service Center here in Istanbul, Turkey but they are requesting 300$ for recover, even it's under  the regular warranty. According to the Service Center, it's a user fault. Please help me to understand how it can be a user fault? I though notebooks are designed for mobile usage and they have lids for opening and closing up. If opening a lid is a user fault then i'd expect to see "Use with only open lid, do not touch the lid never ever!" warning in the user manual. My warranty will be expired in a month and i'm still hoping some help on this. Many thanks.

Hi. I have had my Y700 for about 3 months and though it runs perfect, the power adapter gets so hot that it actually leaves my hand red when I pick it up! I never have the powersuply covered or anything like that. Every time I play any game it gets this hot. Is this normal? Something tells me it is not but I thought I would throw it out there. Also, if the power suply is a problem, are there 3rd party power adapters that would be better? thanks

A:Y700 Touch Power Adapter Overheating

Hi Redemption77
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would that be the same if you plug it with or without any power strip or different source outlet?
Warm feel should be normal but if its unusually warm then it could be alarming as it goes too hot to handle.
 
If so , this may likewise cause damage to the laptop and be best that you call in technical support for recommendation and service . You may likewise test a different adapter with the same electrical specification of your current one to isolate .

You just need to compare things like capacity, weight, and price.  The power bank should have a USB standard charging port and a DC output port as well.

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
The Yoga 3 Pro looks for 20V input, 4x what that power bank can output. Also, the proprietary cable has extra contacts.
 
There may be power banks that can supply the proper voltage, but I think it unlikely that one has the proprietary receptacle configuration to match the cable.

Is there any solution to this?
Thanks!
 

A:Laptop wont turn on after charging power bank

Hi and welcome to TSG.

As annoying as it can be to have to do it, your best option if it appears totally dead is to RMA the laptop if it is only 3 months old. Fiddling about with it too much trying to diagnose the problem could end up invalidating any warranty your friend has.

The only simple checks I would do are to try and power it up with and without the power cord connected.
Then remove the battery (assuming it is a removable one) and try it again with the power adapter attached.

It could be a problem with the laptop or that the power brick has just failed, it happens occasionally.

Hi all, got this power bank (40AL140CWW) for my P1. It is listed as acceptable for the system on the Option Compatibility Matrix (January, 2019). Got it a while back, tested it, worked fine: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/9uyew4/fieldtesting_the_lenovo_usbc_14000mah_power_bank/ Using it today (charged yesterday) ... all four lights on the bank come on when I plug it into my P1, but, the system is behaving differently ... previously, the bank powered the unit and its LEDs went off one by one as the charge decreased; the main battery indicator on the bottom did not move off 95%. This time, the main battery indicator shows a decreasing level of charge, and so far, the bank still has four LEDs illuminated. Even weirder, the "remaining time" at one point seemed to indicate the battery was present (showing 8+ hours remaining) but now, even that has changed, and the system is acting like there is no power bank installed at all (shows 3 hours and 33 min [77%] remaining.) I am using the USB-C power cord that came with the bank. Is it defective? TIA, -kj-
