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 jamienffc ,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

You can use the hardware manual for disassembly guide (page39) and likewise follow the steps advised on this thread:

" 1. Install the ATIH on the HDD2. Insert SSD into the external USB box. Yes, this advice is in opposite of goretsky's one. That box costs 10...20 bucks3. Launch the ATIH, select the clonong process:a)the whole driveb)in manual mode (leave the size of partition System_DRV as is, partition C: will be resized in proportion, as well as the Q: )4. The app will reboot the laptop for the cloning process.5. Wait several hours . After finish replace the SSD and the HDD. Boot from the SSD.6. If you have Factory Recovery media already you can delete Lenovo_Recovery partition on the SSD. Resize the system partition (add the free size from the Q: ), even make the new partition7. Reinstall Lenovo R&R applicationn in order to get working ThinkVantage button at the laptop boot stage."

Some vendors have their own cloners offered free with the SSD , on this thread Acronis True Image 2014 (Home) was used but you can freely choose one that you are more familiar with.

Hope this help answer your query.

Regards

Hi , i would like to know if i can change/add new GPU to my laptop. Thanks.

A:Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBD 80qq

Good day and welcome to the community.There's no 'socketed' dGPU. If so equipped, it's soldered to the system board as in most all laptops. Have a look at pages 63-64 of the hardware manual, item #11, for system boards: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_100_15_ibd_hmm_201508.pdf
Hope this helps to clarify.

Whenever I press a key on my keyboard my trackpad will freeze up, how do I fix this problem? I've had the problem since iI got the laptop but it didn't really have an effect on me until recently when I started playing some new games on my laptop. I've searched everywhere for suggestions but nothing works. Palmtracking seemed to be the big fix for a lot of people but that option box is greyed out for me I can't adjust it at all.

I'm always using V-Sync or just locking the fps to 60 because i was thinking it will help me...I updated BIOS because i was thinking it was because it was outdated but that doesn't helped me...Is that normal? If no, then if there is solution to fix it or only service can help me?

Hi, For some reason after latest shutdown my wifi adapter just stopped working. And I dont see anyone have similar issue previously here, and I cannot figure out why adapter is like switched off, but Ideapad 100 does not have phisical wifi adapter switch to turn it of. So here is what I've tried/checked (using Win7 Ult x64 btw): Adapter is enabledDisable/Enable to adapterReinstall of all network adaptersUninstall of wifi adapter+driver removal, clean apater install with new driver from lenovo homepageTurn it off and on in BIOSCheched that WLAN service is starting automaticallyThought that maybe I have flight mode on (btw there is no pop-up msg that would inform in win7 if you tur it on and off), so I've played with that so far that I even disabled hotkeys in BIOS to be sure that I tur it on or off with some of action. Disabled option in adapter that PC can turn it offRollback For now Im out of ideas, what else I can check. Basically apater acts like it has been phisically turned off, but my pc does not have switch to tur it off, so I cannot figure out how to turn it on. Next step I can see is only format and clean install, but I badly dont want to do it. Hope someone has an idea what has happened there and get my wifi adapter back to life.

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).

Hello all,
I have a Modell 80QQ Lenovo Ideapad purchased with Windows 10 preinstalled.
 
Initially there was an on screen indication when Number Lock, or Caps Lock was engaged; now I get no indication of these actions on screen. I do get two distinctive beeps indicating enable/disabled for the processes, however remembering that is frustrating.
 
So how do I enable the OSD for the Caps/Number Lock functions?
 
FYI I have tried this:
1.  Right-click on desktop and choose "Display Settings"
2.  Scroll to bottom and click on "Advanced Display Settings"
3.  Scroll to bottom and click on "Display Adapter Properties"
4.  Click on the tab "On Screen Display"
5.  Make sure checkbox is checked "Enable on-screen display"
 
But there is no tab for OSD listedon the pop up window.
 
Regards!

Graphics drivers are verified by OEMs to make sure, they are compatible with their systems. Once you installed OEM verified driver, you won't be able to install generic driver easily. In order to install it, you'll need to remove all traces of older driver(s) and prevent Windows Update from automatically installing OEM verified driver again. You can use Display Driver Uninstaller, which will take care of these steps for you. Once done, you will be able to install latest generic driver version without an issue. Just be aware, that there might be some problems, as driver wasn't verified to be compatible with your system.

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

Hi, everyone. I have the IdeaPad 100-15IBD. We purchased it two years ago and have had no problems until a month ago. The wife calls me up and says the battery died and she cannot get it to turn back on. Upon arrival home I consulted Dr. Google.. bingo! Find some articles on the NOVO button and we're up and running in no time. Since we've made it a point to use conservation mode and keep it plugged up when in use and shut down when not.  Yesterday, the wife apparently got confident that our little problem wouldn't happen again.. and if it did it would be an easy fix. So voila.. she kills it again. No biggie, I thought, because I now know what to do. To my unfortunate suprise it wouldn't work! I have gone through those steps over and over and get nothing. No lights.. no boot menu.. nothing. Is there anything more I can do to get around this? Any and all help will be ever so greatly appreciated!

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.
