Power Bank for Lenovo Y500

Q: Power Bank for Lenovo Y500

Hi all, I just started a grad school program that requires me to be in class for a number of hours each day. Unfortunately, the class has limited power outlets so I won't always be guaranteed one. I'm looking into a power bank/external battery charger for the Y500 but can't seem to find one that is compatible. I was told the power specs of my laptop are 19.5v 6.15A, but the issue is that most of the ones I've found online have a max output of 5A. Does anyone have a recommended item? Thanks for your help!

I have a Lenovo Y50-70 model 20378 and I also recently bought the Lenovo Power Bank. I charged the power bank, got 4 lights, tried it on the computer (off) and the charge light flashes on the laptop. I start the laptop and once windows 10 has started, I get a compatibility error popup box and a link to buy a power adapter, which ironically enough takes me to the page with power adapters, including the Power Bank.Seems to be an issue where it may not supply enough power to run the laptop while it is on?Power icon on the status bar shows a red X. I found some fine print on the power bank on the Lenovo site but not other resellers - not for laptops with discreet graphics... this should have been made a bit more prominent in the description. Did I waste $100 buying this?

My power adapter to my Y500 Idea pad is messed up. The wiring inside must have gotten damaged somehow and is now faulty. It only charges my laptops when angle in certain positions, or goes in and out. It's the 170W AC adapter one, but is there really a difference in using one of the small Wattage Adapters? The 170W one is just way out of price-range for me so I'm looking for one of the cheaper versions. I found one online that is "Y500 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A". Would that work with my laptop?  I don't understand how different wattages affect my laptop (I'm assuming it affects charging time) so any help is appreciated. I generally keep my laptop plugged in with the battery removed, so I don't have to worry too much about charging the battery, if that's any help.Thank you!

You can find a huge collection by searching ?power banks for laptops? on a search engine. 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. I have bougth a power bank in Pakistan for my laptop last year from Doortodoor.pk an online shopping store, ask their support team to guide you which is better for your laptop

Anyone have any suggestions for a power bank to use with the C930? This is the one I was taking a look at on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Power-Delivery-Charger-20000-Output/dp/B078RTGL35/ref=sr_1_3?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qi... The power bank is 45W. However, the C930 charge is 65W. According to the seller, it will work with the C930 but not charge as quickly as the older generation C920, which is 45W. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

Hello Everyone, I am considering the purchase of a specific power bank for my L540 laptop. The product is the Vinsic 30000mah. I can't seem to get clarification on whether my Lenovo laptop will successfully hook up with the PB and take the charge. As far as I can tell, the PB has a lot of muscle and is well-recommended. The PB comes with 8 adaptors; for Lenovo products it lists a  7.9*10 mm adaptor. It says it has 3 output ports: 1 DC output up to 19V 3.5A, with a max output current of 4.5A; and 2 Smart USB outputs, with output up to 5V 2.4A.  It also says it has 2 Input ports: 1 DC input and 1 Micro USB input. I am uncertain if the specs on my L540 make it compatible with the features listed shown above. Can someone with expertise advise me if I'm Ok to go ahead with the purchase based on the features? Many thanks!

I have been using my Lenovo Y500 laptop for 5 years and there was no problem like this. Yesterday I got a new SSD to replace my hard drive and after some problems, I managed to install windows and started using it.However, there is a problem. When trying to open the laptop with power button, it no longer boots. It just gets stuck on Lenovo logo screen.The only way to get past this is pressing restore button, which opens something called Novo button menu Where I have to select "Normal startup" to start my OS. Which is kinda annoying.What could be the problem here?

Hello, I have a problem with my lenovo y500, right now my laptop won't boot to Windows 8, it stays in the lenovo black screen and shows "preparing automatic repair" loading for many minutes. Also when it boots, goes to a blue screen where I can choose options like recovery and stuff, the thing is that when I click it, it says that the hard drive is locked and I don't know what to do.

Update:

I don't even get to be in windows, it doesn't boot at all.

I made a restore with one key recovery and still won't boot. I really don't know what else to do, since this M$ system of not providing a win 8 key with the laptop that the user can see won't let me download a new win 8 iso from the official website.

I?ve downloaded an enterprise version wich doesn't work either, so now Im downloading a pirate version to see how it goes.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

So it all started few months back when I updated my Y500 to Windows 8.1 from store. Back then freezes weren't that frequent. It used to freeze once or twice a day. The screen would either go black accompanied with a 'pop' sound, fan would start running and it would shutdown moments later or would go crazy with weird colors and same thing happens( http://i.imgur.com/e79BVsP.jpg ) . Soon the freezes increased to the point that my Y500 would freeze moments after it boots to desktop (or even during booting)So I did a clean installation of Windows 8.1 few weeks back and it was normal for first 2 days. The issue started again. I unistalled latest Nvidia drivers (removed using Display Driver Uninstaller) and reverted back to old Nvidia drivers from Lenovo website, also tried the TDR fix but it didn't fix a thing. The issue is even more terrible when the laptop is not plugged in. (Didn't encounter any such issue when I booted in safe mode though.)Tried running scannow and RestoreHealth commands. Couldn't fix (due to some errors, forgot what it was).Tried running chkdsk scan, Never got the chance to finish as it would get interrupted by the freeze everytime.Encountered few BSODs too. (MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(tcpip.sys), WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR). Even as I write, I'm being interrupted with this freezing issue(see the pixelated colors) : http://i.imgur.com/hwDuK5k.jpg Maybe old, but here are the MiniDump files :https://drive.google.com...

My Windows 8 Lenovo Y500 has been in a constant auto repair black screen blue screen loop for a couple of days now and I can't seem to find a solution. Mainly I've been looking to simply factory restore it to solve the problem since I don't care about losing any data. I've already tried: F8Shift + F8F9F11Novo button system recovery I tried these in order to try and access the advanced options but to no avail. The Novo button system recovery says "Loading files" then goes to Lenovo logo but loops back to the auto repair. I do not have a Win. 8 recovery disc or USB at hand. Is the only way to fix this is to obtain one? Thanks.

Hello. Sorry for my English.I recently installed Windows 10 on lenovo y500. 4 months everything worked well, but then I started to have problems with the video card. When I turned on the laptop, the screen started flashing, and then I saw a message about the failure of drivers. Then he stopped flashing and there were green pixels on the screen. I tried to reinstall the drivers, but nothing helped. Later, when I turned on the laptop, the screen turns green, and then completely turns off after a few seconds. I took it to the service center, and they said that it is necessary to install only Windows 8, because the BIOS and SLI does not work correctly with Windows 10.

Apologies if this has been addressed before but my problem is pretty specific and I couldn't find any threads about it.  For a quick backgound, my OS is Windows 10 (was Windows 8 prior) and my network adapter is an Intel Centrino N-2230.  I have a Lenovo Y500 laptop and my internet has been having issues. For background, it was working fine until sometime early this year. I got an ethernet cable and mainly relied on that. Whenever I would unplug my ethernet cord, most of the time my internet wouldn't work - the open networks availble shown would just be empty even though all my other devices connected to the internet just fine. I ignored this and continued because I mainly only used it with ethernet anyways, and if I really needed to I could disable and reenable my network adapter to get the internet working (for like 30 seconds before it would often die again).  I'm back home from college now however, and I need a consistent internet. The problem I face now is that when my laptop isn't plugged in, I can't seem to use internet at all (I can do the disable and re-enable technique but it works for like 5 seconds before it stops working again). When my laptop is plugged in, it stays connected to the internet consistently, but the quality of the connection is really inconsistent. For games that I play, every 10 minutes I usually have around 3-4 instances where the ping goes from 20 to like 1000 for 10-15 seconds, sometimes even completely disconectin... Read more

I have a lenovo ideapad y500 with a 1366x768 screen, and I am looking to pop open the screen, and replace the panel with a 1920x1080 screen. Assuming that I purchase another 15.6 inch screen (size of the original screen), is this possible? A model of the y500 is sold with a 1080p display, and the graphics card in my model is more than capable of outputting such a resolution. I was just wondering if there is a chance that the connections between my laptop and new screen would not match as I do not know if there is some sort of standard port with screens. Thanks!
 

A:Screen upgrade lenovo ideapad y500

You would need to find out the exact model of the 1080p screen was that was sold with that model and order the same one or compatible replacement model. Laptop screens are not universally interchangeable and you can't just buy any screen and connect it.

Okay so, I got my Lenovo Ideapad Y500 a couple days ago. Liked it and all BUT when I had my mouse connected into the laptop and then turned off the touchpad, it would not turn back on. The only way I could get my touchpad to work again is by restarting the computer, which is pretty frustrating. I searched this: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?   for ANY drivers/software for the Y500 mousepad and there are none. Can anyone help me fix this problem before I get a refund from this potentially bad purchase? FN + F6 toggles the touchpad on and off and I have tried to turn it on and off, with and without the external mouse connected. Thanks for the help.

My touchpad is virtually worthless. Advise people to stay away from the y500 until (if possible) Lenovo fixes this problem.

A:Lenovo Ideapad Y500 Keyboard issues

Hi Subhasree16,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Try using an external usb keyboard and see if you would have the same issue. Test it also with the onscreen keyboard to help isolate if the issue is with the hardware.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards
