Legion Y520 IKBN : Can't save Legacy priority in BIOS

Q: Legion Y520 IKBN : Can't save Legacy priority in BIOS

Hello, Just acquired this Legion Y520-IKBN laptop and I'm trying to install Win10 with a USB key.Followed the steps on the internet :- Boot Priority : Legacy First- USB Boot : EnabledBut when it comes to move "USB HDD" in the "Legacy" section to the first position, I quit and save changes but it doesn't work, the computer still boot on the "FreeDos interface". When I restart and open the BIOS, the positions in the Legacy section are back to default. The changes on Boot Priority and USB Boot have been saved though, it only concerns the USB HDD in Legacy. Regards.

Preferred Solution: Legion Y520 IKBN : Can't save Legacy priority in BIOS

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.)

I updated the BIOS yesterday and after using it today, i realised that the laptop was heating up, even though i wasn't playing any games. Just watching some videos on youtube using Microsoft Edge. The bottom side of the laptop, the one below the keyboard, felt hotter than usual. Same for the part right above the fan, one where the power button is. Never had an issue before the update as it never used to get hot enough for me to feel it unless I was playing a heavy game. It only gets better if I use the extreme cooling feature, but that shouldn't be the case for regular browsing. Could this BIOS update be the reason for my laptop heating up? Please help.

Hello, I own a Lenovo Legion Y520 (the one with 2tb HDD) and I would like to add an SSD to it as well. From what I've read, if I want to keep my HDD and add an SSD, I will need an M.2 type SSD. Also, I have found an SSD that I think would be compatible with my Y520, but I wanted to ask here before buying it. The SSD I'm talking about it the SSD WD Black 256GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 2280. I will also attach a picture of it, so if anyone could tell me if it's compatible, I'll be very thankful.This is the one

Hi, ich hab ein Problem mit meinem neuen Laptop. Es handelt sich um den Legion Y520. Er kam ohne Betriebsystem, deswegen habe ich alles selber aufgesetzt. Jetzt habe ich immer wieder Bildruckler. Egal ob beim Gaming oder beim Videos schauen oder beim Scrollen auf Internetseiten. Immer wieder hängt das Bild für eine halbe Sekunde. Die Treiber habe ich alle von der Lenovo-Webseite heruntergeladen. Da es sowohl beim gaming als auch beim normalen Betrieb auftritt und der Laptop hier unterschiedliche Grafikkarten verwendet, denke ich, dass es etwas anderes ist... vll Windows? Hat Jemand eine Lösung für mich? Bin für jeden Hinweiß dankbar.

Hello all. I am about to buy the Legion Y520-15IKBN. It's the i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060  version. I have 2 questions though before I buy it.  1. I have a Seagate Barracuda 5TB 2,5" HDD, a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 500GB and a HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4-2400 laptop RAM. Can I install them on this model or if I open it it will void the warranty?  2. The laptop comes with no OS. I have Windows 10 on my desktop PC. Since Windows are connected to the Outlook account (I think), will I be able to install and activate them on the laptop or I have to buy new? Thank you very much for any answers

I bought the Legion Y520 back in March or April and now the USB ports are constantly disconnecting and reconnecting intermittently. This happens both with my phone as well as my external periphreals such as my mouse. Windows says the USB is unrecognized and to verify USB ports are working properly. According to my Device Manager, all are up to date and no issues. Hoping there isn't a malfunction with the motherboard.

Hallo zusammen, ich habe gestern meinen neuen Legion Y520 15IKBN bekommen. Es hat kein Betriebssystem mitgeliefert, daher wollte ich von einer bootfähigen externen Festplatte Windows 10 installieren, aber irgendwas hat mit dem ISO-Abbild oder der externen Festplatte nicht gestimmt, sodass die Installation noch recht am Anfang abgebrochen wurde. Der Laptop hatte dann einfach einen Lila-Screen gehabt und auf nichts reagiert, daher habe ich ihn mit der Power-Taste ausgeschaltet. Heute habe ich mir einen USB-Stick besorgt und wollte die Installation nochmal versuchen, aber als ich den Laptop einschalten wollte, passierte nichts, außer dass die Tastaturbeleuchtung anfing zu blinken. Es sind auch keine Lüftergeräusche zu hören oder sonstiges. Ich habe bereits versucht das Akku-Kabel zu entfernen und die Power-Taste 20 Sekunden lang zu drücken, das Blinken hört dann zwar auf, aber wenn ich die Power-Taste wieder drücke, blinkt die Tastatur wieder. Die Novo-Taste reagiert ebenfalls nicht. Was könnte ich denn noch versuchen? Viele Grüße

Hello, I'm an owner of Y520 that I bought less than a month ago and in the past few days, I have been experiencing a strange keyboard issue. At seemingly random times, several random keys will become completely unresponsive.The keys will work fine all day except for a few minutes here and there. For example, my 'e' 'g' 'h' '8' '9' and 'FN' keys just stopped working for about 3 minutes, now they are obviously working fine again. Sometimes it's for more than a few minutes and can be a nuisance.I've also noticed sometimes holding the key down for a while will fix it. I'm wondering if there's some sort of fix that I can try when this happens so that I don't have to take it to an authorized service center.Furthermore, I've noticed that there are more people having the same issue with the same keys as there are videos about it on Youtube. I bought my laptop in Europe but currently live in Canada so I am a bit worried if it is possible to find an authorized repair center. Thanks for any help.

First of all I am sorry for my english but i don't know what to do.I've bought new lenovo legion y520 laptop month or two ago (with i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050 2 GB VRAM, 6 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD) and my gaming experience is pretty bad so far.I tried some games and my fps are the same like on my old desktop PC (more than 6 years old) with i3-2130, amd radeon HD7770 1 GB VRAM and 8 GB RAM. I've tested for example Assassin's creed black flag (same settings on both devices) and my fps were nearly the same on both (around 45 FPS).Then I've tried Battlefield 3, Subnautica and few other games but my biggest issue is with Star Wars Battlefront 2. I checked the minimal system requirements and I should be able to run it quite well atleast on low settings but the game is stuttering so terribly. It is unplayable. But my old PC that don' t enven have minimum requirements runs it better and pretty smooth with MSI afterburner keepin fps at 30-50.I didn' t expect any wonders from this laptop (smooth 40 fps is fine for me) but I've expected that I'll be able to play atleast some older games pretty well. The question is: Is it normal or something is not allright with my laptop?I tried installing all drivers from lenovo website (install them manually), reinstall windows 10, celan install windows 10, find newest Nvidia drivers, change graphic driver settings but nothing helped.I've also noticed that while playing star wars battlefornt 2 on old desktop my graphic card usage is quite stable but while playing o...
