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, i have the following model Yoga 510-14ISK Laptop, the problem is that whenever i try to play a game, it won' matter what title, it won't switch to the dedicated graphics.What i tried so far:-disabled onboard graphics, ran a test on League of Legends, i have about 5 to 7 fps, it did not work at all the first time, the radeon graphics driver was either missing completely or malfunctioning ! i downloaded the auto detect driver tool from radeon, seems to have partially solved the problem, the game starts but as i said above very low fps, with minimum settings, do note that with my onboard driver it can render it in high quality at the max resolution available 1366x768.-changed the power plan to high perfomance;-i ran the lenovo companion basic diagnostic test and all the components are working as they should no problem there.What could be the cause of this ? With my integrated graphics card i can run it just fine, but i have a dedicated card and my laptop does not use it at all, in any circumstance, even videos on youtube with my dedicated card enabled and onboard card disabled it moves clunky, and yes it does have the power cable connected.Any solutions ?Thank you !

Hi everyone. So I've noticed this subject being touched on for other models but mine doesn't seem to be listed anywhere plus a lot of the posts are a bit older now...I'm looking for an up date on this issue maybe. I'm looking for a stylus or pen that will go with my touch screen device. My goal ideally would be to use illustrator or photoshop to make simple sketches and even illustrations or paintings. So far a few styli I have tried don't work. The dollar store rubber tip one will draw a wobbly line which is useless while a more expensive Adonit Jot Pro with a clear disk on the tip...hardly manages a continuous line at all.  It also doesn't help that the Lenovo site doesn't list ANY accessories for my device along the lines of pens/styli and half the time the site tells me I have a Thinkpad and half the time it's an Ideapad. And sometimes my model isn't even listed at all anywhere on the accessories drop down! This is my first time switching to a non-mac/apple product and so far I have to say I'm really not too impressed but still hopeful things will work out. My Yoga 700 came out of the box with driver issues as well as a desperate need for a firmware update that would fix ghost touch screen tap issues that kept closing windows... But I guess those can just be called growing pains. I would really like to make full use of my touch screen so I'm looking for a pen or stylus with pressure sensitivity and palm rejection that integrates with illustra... Read more

Hi, I recently bought a Yoga 500-14ISK Laptop (ideapad) - Machine Type 80R5 and have used it extremely rarely. I would say I've used it at a maximum of 30-40 hours. I have had some problems with the laptop but nothing that made it completely un-usable until now. On turning on the machine, the network wireless adapter acts strangely, often showing the airplane mode symbol in the task bar. I may or may not be able to connect to my Wifi network but less than 2 minutes later the entire Wifi adapter disappears from the OS, no longer having Wifi settings or being able to configure the Adapter via device manager. I've been told a fix for this may be turning the wireless off and on again via the BIOS but I can't figure out how I access it, considering the first screen I see is the loading symbol for Windows 10. Anyone got any advice? Harrison

My bluetooth stopped working yesterday. I ran troubleshooters etc. but they didn't fix it. I downloaded the driver from this site and installed it but that didn't work either. I couldn't see how to uninstall the original driver from device manager, when I right clicked on bluetooth I got a scan hardware option which did nothing and a properties option which brought up a small screen saying bluetooth and nothing else. Only reason I can think why it might have happened is I installed itunes the day before, I'm using windows 10, laptop is a year old. Out of ideas to fic it, any advice would be appreciated.

What: Yoga 710-14ISK Laptop (ideapad). Problem: cannot create New Folder on Desktop Process: I right-click on my desktop to create a 'new folder,' I get the usual list of possible commands. I scroll to 'create new,' in order to create a new folder, the computer freezes for a second, the cursor becomes pixelated, the whole screen goes black for half a second, and then, seemingly, it returns to normal. However, it closes out of the right-click box with all the commands, the cursor starts to freeze for about 3-5 seconds every 1-2 minutes (I can still click, but the cursor is frozen), and I lose the ability to use the TouchPad to scroll vertically and horizontally. I have been able to restore the TouchPad and cursor by uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, but I am still unable to create a New Folder on the Desktop. I have tried to bypass the issue by creating a New Folder via File Explorer, but the same issue occurs.  I would appreciate any suggestions.

However the screen occasionally and randomly goes black during work and the only solution is to switch it off with power button and switch it on again. When in black screen, computer still works (fans, music, etc.) I tried to close the laptop to put it into a sleep mode and open it again-screen works but after entering my password it goes black again in a second.I was able to solve all the other issues(high CPU, RAM and disku usage) but this one is killing me.

Hey there.I just got a Yoga 500-14ISK too and I ran into a thread (here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/FLex-3-Video-card-Mathematical-Operatio... where guys were having similar issues, as well as the Lenovo Companion app detecting hardware errors. I don't have black screen issues but it does tell m I have an Intel HD 520 hardware problem.What they suggested is that the laptop is "too new" for the drivers and Lenovo has acknowledged the issues. (see here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht105222) Some people fixed the black screen problem by manually installing these drivers:https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25620/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-6th...Hope this helps!

I have had a Yoga 700 14ISK for approx. 1.5 years. I have just started having issues with the fan constantly running even with very little usage / open applications. I checked CPU usage in task manager and it is very low ~ 2%. I have seen some suggestions to update BIOS for the Yoga 710 to deal with this issue. The only BIOS update I have seen for the Yoga 700 was from Sept 2016. I've also seen some suggesitons to download a fan control utlity and then adjust fan settings. Anybody else experiencing this issue with the Yoga 700 ? Should I download the BIOS update from Sept 2016 ? Will that help ?  Any advice would be apprecaited. Thanks,

A lower number of wait states won't make it incompatible.  I would try reseating it.  Also, after a configuration change, it may take longer for the first POST - maybe up to a minute.  Sometimes, particular brands and models have compatibility problems.  If it still doesn't work, I suggest returning it for a different brand.  My choice is always Corsair Vengeance.  I've never had compatibility issues.  Other people may have other favorites.

Hello all,.I've recently bought a 14" yoga (model no: 80S700D7UK).I'm interested in possibility of upgrading the current i3-6100u CPU to an i5 or i7 but cannot find anything in the maintance manual. Does anyone have an idea if it is possible and what cpu models are compatible to the socket/chipset/cooling potential.Thank you all,Vedran

A:Yoga 510-14isk cpu upgrade

Hi RefurbishedYoga,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking with i3-6100u specification here for the supported socket show BGA (ball grid array) or soldered onto the motherboard so it cannot be upgraded.
 
Similarly, as the hardware manual does not offer steps for CPU removal, page 70-71 item 4 show description of the motherboards with the CPU that it comes with too. So upgrading the CPU would mean changing the entire board instead.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards
