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.)

Hello.  Got this laptop this past Christmas, unfortunately has never worked very well.  Since I bought it, it's had this problem where every time I close the laptop and reopen it, the task bar disappears and the trackpad is unuseable.  I have to manually restart it to get it to work again.  I disabled sleep mode and still this problem would occur.  Then suddenly the trackpad stopped working altogether.  I have to plug in a USB mouse to use this laptop now.  I updated all drivers (including trackpad) and still I cannot use the trackpad.  Windows 10 is also fully updated.  I did not change anything in the control panel so am not sure why it suddenly stopped working.  I am attaching a picture I took showing the problem.  This is after opening up the laptop, you can see the taskbar has disappeared and screen is incorrect resolution.Honestly, this laptop is very disappointing and I'm frustrated that I got it.  I have a newborn at home so spending time on this is really annoying/difficult.  I hope very much that there is an easy fix here.  Please help.  ThanksKC

I have a Lenovo V110-15ISK where the power button does not appear to work, but if I remove and reinsert the power cable the laptop will open up the Novo Button Menu and I can boot to the hard drive from there - from that point the laptop will work fine.  Pressing the Novo button itself will not turn the laptop on. This is a work laptop so I have other laptops I can get spares from, so I've replaced the power button component, the cable, and the motherboard entirely, but the problem still persists.  Pressing the physical power button component while I had the case opened up also did not work, so I don't think it is anything to so with the plastic power button not connecting to the component. I've noticed that these Lenovos will not power on if they are sat on another Lenovo laptop (no idea why that is) so I'm wondering if whatever causes that effect could be affecting this one too, even though it is not stacked on another laptop. Any suggestions or advice gratefully received.

Hello everyone,I'm in desperate need for some help for this issue with my almost new Ideapad (model as in object). After the automatic Windows 10 1709 Fall Creators Update the laptop started to have problems in recognizing my Panasonic Hd Ready TV via HDMI (wich worked perfectly just before that). No error messages of any sort, it's just like the cable isn't plugged in (Win+P or other combos not working). I thought it could be related with video driver problems, so I ran the Lenovo System Update, which actually solved the problem, but just for a few days. Then it suddenly stopped working again (no other updates or software installation meanwhile). As the drivers as up to date, I obviously can't do any further upgrades. I tried the static discharge methot as well (the battery is built in, so I just kept the power button pressed for 30 seconds with the unit turning on and off repeatedly), but it didn't work for me (maybe I lost something in the process?).I would really be glad for any idea given, as I bought the laptop something like three months ago and, even if i format it (wich won't be a big issue), the Windows update will be reinstalled so the problem will probably show up again. Thanks in advance,Riccardo

Hi gabriel90ita,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per product specifications:
V110-15ISK: 16GB max / 2133MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable,
4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket
 
There would only be one available socket for upgrade (up to 16GB max) similar to crucial's scanner here.
The other 4GB is soldered part of the systemboard as shown here in page 49 hardware manual.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hello, i just wanna know if it is possible to upgrade the Lenovo v110-15isk cpu and gpu. 

A:Lenovo V110-15isk CPU and GPU upgrade

In all modern laptops the CPU and GPU are soldered to the motherboard. It's called BGA socket. And to upgrade them you have to replace the whole motherboard with new CPU and GPU soldered to it.

I have (or had) a new, working lenovo laptop. Everyting was normal but after downloading updates from its official  red lenovo app that was loaded in the computer, it said it needed to restart, black cmd appeared, it counted down from 5 to 0 and then nothing but a working fan, orange led light that shows the computer is charging and caps lock light. I remember before the update i closed num lock's light but now i can't open it. So I can say keyboard also doesn't work. I read some solutions by holding the power button for some time. Non of them worked, it just powers on and powers off. There is no light in the screen. I am confused and sad. I have an assingment 2 weeks later and have a brick in my hands that can cool itself. I mean how can a company wreck its own computer by updates? Please tell me it can be repaired and warranty covers it.

I just purchased a Lenovo Ideapad V110-15ISK with the intention of replacing the 500 gb hdd with a 480 gb ssd.  I used the Aoemei cloning software but it says the ssd is too small?  I haven't installed anything on the 500 gb hdd, I'm just going with it out of the box, so I thought cloneing to something 20 gb smaller shouldn't be an issue.  I made the Lenovo partician drive that's 24 gb smaller, to about 3 gb, and it cloned fine, but when I installed it back into the laptop, on start up I get a windows 10 boot error 0xc0000225.  I went ahead and made a boot usb and it boots, but then it wants me to install window 10 anew? I don't know what to do.  I love the laptop, I just want it running off of an ssd, and it should be simple, but I spent most of my Sunday on this and the anxiety is getting to me. I posted this a few min ago but the thread was gone a few min later, if this is improper formatting, please let me know and I'll make the changes, otherwise I'm just trying to get some help here.

Hi guys, I enjoy using my v110-15isk laptop, but have some video card problems. I tried different ways but cant solve.

It says others are OK but Intel HD520 test failed on "mathematichal operations test" (Program crashs and close). I think main problem is driver conflicts. But how will i solve it?

Hi All,

Just bought a new Lenovo Miix 8" tablet and finally it is all up to date, 79 files and 937MB download.

Last night I tried to use the Miracast but it got to the last connection requirement and hung at "Waiting for IP Address from peer" and got no further. It eventually crashed with the ever-helpful windows message "There was a problem connecting to device."

The Miracast dongle I am using works fine with my ASUS MeMo and also Moto X phone so it is not the dongle.

Any thoughts and suggestions to get it working?

Try a restore point perhaps.

Or run full virus scans.
or
Restore to factory settings.

Hello. I have a 3 year old PC computer running windows 7, and I recently noticed that the CD-rom on it has stopped working. I don't use the CD-rom very often (it's probably been months since I last used it), and so I don't know for sure when this problem occurred. But today I tried to put a CD in it, and the thing wouldn't even open up. When I checked in My Computer it wasn't in their either, and I think it somehow broke since my computer isn't recognizing it.

I opened up the side of the computer and checked inside to see if it somehow came unplugged. I jiggled the connection to make sure it was firm, and it appears to be plugged in but I'm not sure if these things have only 1 plug going into the motherboard, or maybe they have a second one for a power source (though I didn't see anything that looked like a second plug coming out of it).

Anyway, I'm wondering if there is anything I can do from a software perspective to double check to see if my CD drive is indeed broken and it's time to get a new one. Thanks!
 

A:CD-ROM has stoped working

Hey David. CD or DVD?. If it is a CD,I would say right off the bat that you likely have a bad drive since it's been DVD drives only for years now and optical drives do go bad. Any lights on the drive come on at any point?. I would verify that the cables are plugged in properly at both ends, and if no lights at all on the drive (from power on till ready),try one of the other power cables from the power supply and repeat.

RELEVANCY SCORE 54

Hi,

Could somebody help me please with my CD/DVD drive as it stopped working for no reason? It rejects every CD/DVD.

It is on a Packard Bell all in one pc. It is running windows 7 home premium.

I attached a portable CD/DVD drive and it reads ok but it will not burn.


I inserted a CD and it says drag your file here to burn; and then it says insert cd to burn. Eh!


Somebody suggest reinstall windows 7, but that sound a bit drastic. I do not know when it stopped working so a restore is not an option.

Could somebody help?

Many thanks

Ceira

A:CD/DVD has stoped working. I do not know why or when.

hi so you are saying the internal cd/dvd drive does not read any type of disk? it's possible the drive has just failed. but you could try the fixit here. </title> <link href="//az623152.vo.msecnd.net/cdnresources/1.51/content/smccss.css" rel="stylesheet" /> <link href="//az623152.vo.msecnd.net/cdnresources/1.51/common/css/default/fixit.css" rel="stylesheet" /> <link href="//az623152.vo.msecnd.net/cdnr
and for the external drive are you sure the drive is a burner not just a cd/dvd drive? whats the make and model number of the external drive?
