Ideapad FLEX 6-14IKB mx130 downclocks to 405MHz while gaming, despite not overheating

Q: Ideapad FLEX 6-14IKB mx130 downclocks to 405MHz while gaming, despite not overheating

Hello, As the title suggests, I have a problem with the mem and gpu clock downclocking to 405MHz without breaking 60C. I've done a bit of reading into it, and I think it may have to do with intel speedstep, though I can't find the option to turn it off in the BIOS. Any help is 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.)

Have been using my ideapad 310-14ikb for a few months now without issues. Up till yesterday when it got stuck on the shutting down screen. Then totally turned off. And now it cant be turned on anymore. When i plug in the charger, it does charge. But still can't be turned on. How do i check if i still have warranty on it? Got it through my previous employer for work, so i don't have any payment receipts or anything. Thanks in advance.

Hi community, Recently i purchased the 8th gen core i3 version of the ideapad 330s which comes with a slow 1TB 5400 rpm HDD.I'd like to install an ssd in the M.2 slot present in the laptop. I tried installing Western Digital greeen SATA III M.2 SSD of 120gb and it did not work. After some research i found out that the notebook does not support SATA III SSD in the M.2 slot. The other option that i can go now is M.2 PCIe NVME SSD , but i'm not suer that it will be supported in the notebook. The Hardware maintenance guide specifies the storage it has as HDD and M.2 PCIe . Can u guys please assist me with this issue as i cannot buy one which does not work and waste money. thanks! Hardware maintenance manual

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!

I googled for some time and could find solutions without using screw drivers as this has built in battery. I got this laptop like a month ago. its working fine on day 1 but the following days, I cant turn it on without using charger even though the battery is 100% charged. When on battery, it wont turn on. Then I plug in the charger and tried to turn on but it wont start. The plug in light is on. And I would need to wait for around 30 minutes to try to turn on again. When turning on it would show something like this. Sometimes, the screen would blink in dark green and I can hear the starting up sound repeatedly but it just wont start. Anyone can help with solutions without the need to open the laptop as I have no clue to do that? Thanks in advance

Hi! I bought the Ideapad 720S-14IKB about two weeks ago, and I am really really happy about it. The only thing that is bothering me, is that the fans on this machine cycle a lot. Like, for a while they make basically no noise, until they suddenly ramp up to the max for a short period before they go back to being practically silent. They're not even that loud in general, it's just that they are pulsating a lot, and that makes the noise so much more noticeable. I really would like to see a BIOS update or driver update or something that makes the fan cycling a bit smoother. Is there any chance of this actually happening in the near future?

Hello! I am opening this thread here because I haven't found any specifics about the HDMI version on this model despite searching a lot, which is quite baffling to be honest. This model (320-14IKB) has an HDMI port but it's version is not specified. Notice that I am not asking for FPS for gaming since I know the HD Graphics 620 is not really suited for that. I just want to know how high of a raw refresh rate I can achieve through the HDMI port.

I'm just out of warranty for my Flex 14. Last week I started noticing the smell of melted plastic, and the monitor started to flicker. Sent it to repair, and the tech guys told me it it would need a full motherboard change, as the videocard was overheating when an external monitor was plugged in. The weird thing is that the part melting is visible just below the screen, not where the rest of the motherboard is. I can't find if separate pieces of hardware in this case have different warranties. My videocard is: Intel HD 4400. Help? It is really annoying that my computer started to melt just after my warranty finished.

Machine: Ideapad 720S-14IKB Type 81BD The Problem: Randomly (and frequently) the touchpad completely stops functioning. This issue persists even through restarts. After 30-60 minutes it just as unexpectedly starts working again. While it's not working it is 100% non-functional: no mouse shows up on screen, clicking does nothing, swiping does nothing, gestures do nothing. While it is working it is 100% functional: everything works as expected. Things I've already tried:- The 'disable trackpad' function key (trackpad doesn't work in either mode)- Restarting (issue persists through restart)- Updating software (I got latest Windows 10)- Updating firmware (I got latest firmware through Lenovo System Update) Something I noticed while looking for solutions:In 'Device Manager' there is a Trackpad entry in the 'firmware' category, but no driver in the  'Mice and other Pointing Devices' category. I'm not sure if that's normal for this device, and I guess if I have no driver it doesn't explain why my trackpad sometimes *does* work. Also, when looking for a fresh driver download on Lenovo's support page for this machine, there was no entry for trackpad drivers, which struck me as odd. Edit: it has occured to me it's possible this is a hardware issue, so I'll just add that I haven't knocked or spilled anything on the machine either. There was no obvious physical event that preceded the first time this happened.
