Preferred Solution: Ideapad 100-15IBD will not boot

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.)

Hi everyone, I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBD, it's supposed to be equipped with an SDD of 126 GB and an HDD, but all I see is the SDD even when I open Disk Management I can't seem to find it as if it wasn't equipped on the PC.Thank you for your help

A:Where is my HDD Ideapad 100-15IBD

Hi lamradnane , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you have the machine number (check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential) .  It would appear similar to this 80QQ00CQUK  .
 
Physical devices detected by the machine should show in the BIOS . Turning off the system and using the Novo key to power on would give Novo Menu that offers BIOS set up as this can also be verified within windows under device manager if recognized.
 
The parts lookup page would also be able to verify the devices /parts using the machine number or SN. 
 
Update us as soon as convenient. 
 
Regards

I was wondering if anyone has upgraded or swapped out their hdd for a solid state drive on the Ideapad 305 15IBD? My specific model number is 80NJ00F5UK, I have been able to find an mSata ssd drive which says its compatible with the 305 IBD, but not the exact model number above.  To be honest Im pretty happy with the performance of the 1TB hdd that i have but just want to confirm whether its possible or not to swap out for an ssd if I wanted to in the future.  The main reason would be to squeeze a bit more battery life, as its one area where the laptop is a bit weak. mSata SSDhttps://www.ipc-computer.eu/notebook-spareparts/lenovo/300-serie/ideapad-305-15ibd-80nj005j/hdd-12

My lenovo idea pad 100-15ibd ran into a problem while I was on it, not allowing me to do anything. So I turned the laptop off, and tried to turn it back on. When I did this it went into an auto repair, trying to fix disc errors. I let this run for more then 40 hours, before finally stopping it and turning the laptop off. When I did this, anytime I tried to turn the laptop on it would just sit on the Lenovo splash art, and I couldn't bring up a console with f8.
 
At this point I started looking up support on the forums, and found something about cutting all power, and removing the battery. To do this with my Ideapad, I had to take it apart, some. I DID break a lenovo sticker, that was hiding a screw. I assume that is how they would know if it had been opened. Cutting the power didn't work, so instead I took it to a nearby compute repair store. They told me it would likely cost more then half the laptops worth to fix, because it needed a new hard drive, and to be completely reset.
 
So I'm really just trying to see, if the one year warranty that IS still active, according to your website, had been fully voided; And if I'm just going to have to suck it up and drop the benjis.  Or if there is a chance that I could still have it fixed through its warranty. Any help is appreciated.

A:Ideapad 100-15IBD - Voided warranty?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry hear of your problem.  Most Lenovo Service Centers realize that folks will open their laptops in order to upgrade the various components.  Although opening the cover on a model like yours will void the warranty, the service center at times overlook that fact provided no damage was done.  The best I can say is contact Lenovo Support and explain the situation to them and get their opinion.  Regardless of what I write here, they will have the ultimate say as to whether the warranty is voided.  You might also check to see if there is a service center in your area where you could bring the machine in and explain the problem in person.  You can use the Service Locator below to see what is in your area......

Hi  ornella2904 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
What Windows version would you be using?
Assuring that you have already installed all remaining updates for Windows can assure that there are no current downloads or installations currently being processed in the background. 
 
Technical Support are the best guys to consult regarding WWF00F008-UL7VBE as it would need specific tool to decode it and if this would relate to current slow performance. 
 
You can try safe mode and clean boot to isolate if running processes are causing it. Start up options to disable non essential process can help as well disabling hybrid sleep on power setting.
Setting the power option not to save power on the properties of the wlan card under device manager can help maximize wireless usage.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi,My Ideapad 100 has problems connecting to my Virgin Media Superhub 2.When I first bought the laptop and tried to connect to my router I was asked to provide a Username and Password.To resolve this issue I changed the security protocol on the router from WPA Auto to WPA2-AES.When I rebooted the laptop the WiFi SSID was available but when I clicked connect and entered the WiFi password the laptop returned the error "Cannot connect to this network".I ran the Windows Network Troubleshooter and it said that the security on the laptop does not match the security on the network.I've now found that every time I reboot the laptop I have to change the security protocol on the router between WPA Auto and WPA2-AES to get the laptop to connect. No other WiFi devices have difficulty connecting to the router so I suspect it's an issue with the laptop. I've tried uninstalling the Realtek driver to use the Windows one and I've tried the latest driver from the Lenovo support site, all to no avail. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.Many thanks.

There are currently 2 updates that is being shown on windows update :Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3205386)Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607These 2 updates have been repeatedly downloaded and try to install on every reboot with no success. What I have tried thus far is Running Windows Update Troubleshooter, which found and fixed several issues but doesn't fix the update failing to install.Any suggestion would be appreciated. It is pretty tiring getting your the notebook to reboot and try to install an update for 20 minutes and never got through.

Hi! Does this laptop model with InsydeH20 rev 5.0, Lenovo BIOS version EOCN61WW BIOS have any hidden options in it? I can't run some games with it to it's full potential, because the PL1 power limit it locked and set too low so it throttles if I don't cap my fps. I already undervolted it to get the powers down a little bit, but it didn't make enough difference. So I'd like to increase the power limit if it is possible somehow. I found some discussion on the case in point with other laptop models, but I'd like to know if it's possible with this specific device, before in dwell deeper into the matter. From what I gathered, I should tweak the EFI partiton variables with a Linux system for example. Am I on the right path here? You don't have to warn me about the riskyness, I know it and I have some experience in tweaking devices like this, not a guru though. E: I found out that I need some additional hardware to modify the BIOS (SPI Programmer and a SOIC clip). Do you have any other suggestions on what to do to stop the throttling?

Hello All, I have a problem with my new Ideapad 100-15IBD that I received today. Wireless or Ethernet connection is horribly slow - I have 50Mb/s connection and laptop is using 4-5Mb/s max (just to mention even Chrome download takes about an hour with this connection speed/quality). I have it with W10, but also formatted and installed W7 to check, if maybe it's faulty Realtek drivers (I tried both from Lenovo Support website and Realtek ones). On both versions of Windows the problem occurs. I am now back to W10, so it's as fresh as it gets. I tried different settings of Network Card, tried looking through forums about similar problems, but can't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone, preferably Support Team, has any tips or ideas why it's like this. The Network adapters I see are:Bluetooth devices x2 (not important for me at this point I believe)Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (tried meddling with this one, now working on default as it's fresh installation)Realted RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NICI of course got it from retail, it's brand new, so I do not see how it could be broken already (talking about network adapter), so I thought that it's maybe software problem? Also - I noticed it's working even worse on 802.11n only than mixed. Thanks for any tips,c. PS. Sorry for my English, I'm not native speaker (Polish).

So I recently was trying to reinstall Windows 8.1 on my Ideapad Z585, and it will not boot to any USB drive or CD drive containing the Win8.1 install files.(The original Windows install is gone, I had to wipe the drive using my main PC.)I first tried  creating a standard USB installation media using the official Win8.1 Installation Media Creation tool.Created it on an 8gb USB drive, formatted in FAT32.After selecting the USB to boot to on the laptop, it displays the Lenovo boot logo with the spinning circle of dots underneath for about 15 seconds, then a black screen.Tried the same process, but with a RW DVD. Burned the image to the CD with Imgburn, completed and verified with no error.Same issue.I've tried resetting the BIOS settings to default, as well as changing it from UEFI to BIOS, and disabling secure boot, all to no avail. I'd chalk it up to something in the laptop being faulty, but it does boot when I use a Ubuntu 16.04 install disc. Boots to the live CD perfectly fine. So, is there something very specific I need to do to boot to a Win8.1 install media? Or, could it be another problem?If need be (and if possible), I could most likely update the BIOS from within Linux, but I wanted to wait until I asked here to make sure.Thank you for any help!

     Then Go to Boot or startup tab Make sure that secure BOOT is disabled
     and Boot mode and Boot Priority is set to Legacy.
 
Now hit F10 to Save and Exit
 
Insert the CD and Turn the system OFF
 
Now when the computer starts up start hitting F12 (while the system is turning ON)
     You should have a boot selection  select BOOT menu or Select the CD / DVD
   
This should make the CD's load the Installation.

Hello,My 3 year old Ideapad S510P/Windows 10 started with a boot problem a few weeks ago. The symptom was that the power light came on, the disk started to spin and then 2 seconds later it shut down with the power light extinguished. About 15 seconds later this repeated and after a few attempts it would boot normally.Last week it just stuck with the routine of trying to start - as above - and kept trying until I removed the battery.The disk has been connected to another PC and is functional. I tried a new memory module to no effect, and also tried the routine of removing the battery, pressing power a few times and then trying to boot. Problem is identical on battery, battery + external charge and external charge only.Nothing moves it beyond repeatedly doing the 2-3 second start-up loop.Anyone got a suggestion other than send it for recycling?Thanks,
