X1 Yoga TIM replacement

Q: X1 Yoga TIM replacement

My X1 Yoga 2017 is extremely loud under load. I've tried deactivating as many programs and services as I can, but the fan is pretty loud regardless This is probably more of a design issue with the laptop rather than an actual defective part. I'm wondering if anyone has tried TIM replacement on the Yogas and whether if that might help the situation much at all? It wouldn't be covered under lenovo warranty as they're not replacing a defective part, so wondering if its worth the money to do...

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.)

It's a well known issue that the fan of the 710 is very loud. What really annoys me is the high pitched hiss it makes, so I was wondering if there are better fans to replace the old ones.

I've been getting the dreaded blue screen of death with the memory management error for a while now and knowing the RAM is soldered on I figured there was nothing I could do about it, shutting the computer off once a day seemed to help but if I'm using it for a full day then it crashes. Today I had a new one which was the BSoD and the pfn_list_corrupt error so I ran the memory diagnostic and it came back with a hardware problem with the memory, now I suspected that this was the issue with the memory management errors but now this seems to confirm it. So what are my options, just put up with it? It seems there's no real fix but aside from the annoyance of crashes and restarts which for now I can just about live with, is this going to ultimately kill my yoga or not? This along with the wifi problem (thankfully switching that out fixed it) pretty much means this will be the last lenovo product in this household. If I can get another year out of it then I won't feel quite as bad about buying it....BTW is the Pro short for problematic?

A:RAM replacement or fix for a Yoga 2 Pro?

Hi, No one should have to put up with a computer that is not working correctly.If your computer is in warranty do activate it.If not, and assuming the cause is a bad memory chip, you could explore a really invase alternative that is to replace the memory chips. This will requisite advanced eletronics knowledg, a BGA soldering station and new chips. AS you can guess this will not be easy and should be done by a professional. Or you could ask Lenovo for a repair quote.If everything else fails, new computer  Are your shure it's a hardware memory problem? Have you tried restoring to a factory image? Tried playing around with drivers?

I need to upgrade the 128 GB ssd in my Yoga 3 14 to a 256 ssd or hybrid drive.  This drive is very thin - only 5mm - and I cannot find a 256 GB replacement drive for it even though Lenovo sells a Yoga 3 14 with a 256 GB drive.   Where/how can I obtain this 256 GB drive?  Lenovo parts and retail sales website and phone support is woefully unhelpful - multiple calls with no call returns or referrals to other extentions where the person just referred me to another extension.

A:Yoga 3 14 ssd replacement

I have found a good solution to my problem of replacing the small 128 GB ssd on my Yoga 3 14.  The answer is a 500 GB hybrid drive from Seagate - ST500LX012.  This drive is only 5mm high, installs perfectly and fairly easily into the Yoga 3 14 in the mounting space for the hard drive.  Because it's a hybrid drive, it's fast - boots nearly as fast as the SSD that it replaces and generally seems nearly as quick as the SDD, for way less money.  The space allowed for the drive in this Yoga is only 5mm high and I found that a 7mm or thicker drive will not work in this machine if you want to actually lock it securely in place with the existing brackets.  Finding this drive was not easy, as Seagate won't sell it directly and the normal online retailers don't carry it, at least not yet, though they certainly should.  I found the drive finally at www.harddrivesforsale.  Again, Lenova support/sales was no help at all in finding a larger capacity replacement drive and was very disappointing.

Hi guys, Few days ago I cracked the screen of my X1 Yoga 3rd gen which resulted into the touch not working and a visible crack in the display. It had the WQHD screen with touch.  I was looking to get it replaced and I was wondering if Lenovo replaces screen if sent to them or if Lenovo sell the screens (screen+touch digitizer+bezel) individually.

Sorry, I guess I am cross posting.  I initially put this in the Yoga Book forum, sorry about that. -- Hi gang. I picked up a 11.6" 710-11ISK and it had a screen with some issues.  I picked up a replacement on ebay but it didn't fit.  The original screen has the Windows logo on the very center bottom, the new one did not.  The original screen (exterior shell, LCD, hinges -- entire assemnbly I'm talking about here) is about 1/2" shorter than the replacement.  At the bottom bezel of the original screen, where the two screws are that hold the screen together, the little rubber grommets that sit over those screws, were black.  On the replacement screen assembly, they were grey (as was the bezel). I'm wondering if there were a couple of versions (generations?) of the 11.6" 710, and if anyone can help me identify exactly what I have?  Mine has 8GB RAM, soldered onboard the motherboard.  There are still a bunch of replacement screens on Ebay, but, having seen one that doesn't fit, they all look to be of that particular model. Any ideas would be wonderful. Thanks.

My keyboard has taken quite a spill and some of the keys are very stick/stiff to press down on. I'd like to completely replace the keyboard. How do I do this? I know with most laptops you simply pop the little tabs around the perimeter of the keyboard but with this model the entire keyboard face is like one big piece. Must I disassemble the entire laptop from the bottom? Or is there a way to pop off just the top of the keyboard?

The nib on the Active Pen 2 that was included with my Yoga 720 has worn down and I'm trying to find a replacement. There wasn't any included in the box and I can't buy the replacement from the UK store (it's annoyingly on the US store) the part number is 4XH0R14769. I've contacted support and they only link to a 3rd party supplier that charges 30, for a pen that costs 50/60 that's far more than I'd like to pay, especially given the same item from Lenovo US is $10. Does any one know where I can get replacement, or a compatable, say Wacom equivalent? Cheers

Dear forum members,  I bought a Yoga 900 () from Best buy. It has international warranty. During my recent visit to India, for unknown reason, the laptop started behaving wierdly. It used to shut down when plugged in to the power source and would run fine when not plugged in. Since it has international warranty, I took it to the service center in India and got to know that the motherboard needs to be replaced. But they dont have the same motherboard as the architecture Lenovo uses in India is different than the states.  Since I am not returning to US for next few months (traveling to Europe), I would want to get it fixed in India.  The result is that they are ready to replace the motherboard with the Indian variant however, it has 8GB RAM instead of 16GB RAM I had on the original motherboard.  Now, the question is: should I go for this replacement? If yes then what would be the impact of the downgrade of RAM? And finally, would it affect any other parts in the laptop (possible compatibility issues)? Any suggestions / comments are welcome! -AJ

I've had my X1 Yoga 3rd Gen for a couple of months, generally very happy with it. Yesterday I noticed the right arrow key (bottom right of the keyboard, under the PgDn key) is broken - not completely, but the left half of it stays depressed when pushed down. Aside from the fact that I'm unhappy this has happened so soon after purchase (and my sense that it may be a function of the retractable keys and that there's more of the same to come), I'd like to know (a) if these keys can be replaced and (b) what I need to purchase and from where. I've had a look at various sites including http://www.laptopkey.com/ and none have any specific reference to the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. Can anyone help please?

Since your machine is new or at least less than 1 year old it should be under warranty.  If it was me i would call support to have keyboard replaced.  I have never had a key fall off but have had keys that were "overly" sensitive.  I would hit a nearby key and it would trigger the key next to it as well.  Lenovo replaced the keyboard and problem was solved.

Hi Folks,  I was a bit of dumbass over the summer and spilled a small amount of whiskey on my system and killed the keyboard; Not a huge deal as I usually leave the system hooked up to my tv and use a remote keyboard, and when I use it mobile, I can use the onscreen keyboard, although this last is a bit of a pain..  I've tried contacting encompass but they don't seem to sell replacement keyboards; does anyone happen to know where else actually sells replacement keyboards. Biggest problem seems to be that it's a standard Canadian/Bilingual keyboard. I'm able to find US keyboard replacements, but the layout is different so won't fit with the current top plate, and I'd much rather avoid have to replace the whole thing (20$ keyboard vs something like $160 for keyboard and top plate....)  Any help would be appreciated, but if I cant actually find something that should be a relatively easy part to replace, this will be my last Lenovo item unfortunately.Steph S.

Hello, I recently got my Yoga 730 (back in December), and the keyboard has been acting super odd and I was wondering if this is a common issue or if there are any easy fixes. Like a week and a half ago a set of keys on the right side of my keyboard started to break. It seems like these keys are all interconnected somehow based on their locations. The keys are, 0, P, [, ;, ', and /. The weird thing is they aren't completely broken. For example, yesterday I could not get any of those listed keys, along with G and H, to work, but this morning I opened up my laptop and they are all working perfectly. I am sure it is only a matter of time before they give out again. The laptop is still under warranty, but they said the process of shipping it in, repairing it, and shipping it back will all take about 2 weeks which is a long time to not have a laptop I use a lot each day for both school and work. I am wondering if there is possibly a simple repair I could do myself to fix the keys, or about how much would it cost to have a third-party repair shop do the fix in shop. Some other miscellanous information: The keys are not 'sticky', they feel the same as the functioning keys so there is nothing preventing them from being pressed down completely. I have not spilled anything on the keyboard so there is no damage from that. Thanks for reading.

A:Yoga 730 Keyboard Replacement

Generally, if it's still under warranty, you'll want to send it in rather than fix it yourself and that's assuming it's the keyboard, itself, and not some driver conflict. 
 
Just to be clear, the keyboard is not physically "broken" in any way. It's just that the listed keys often don't function properly, correct?
 
You could try using System Restore to roll the 730 back to a restore point from before you had the issue. Also try a clean boot or boot into Safe Mode to see if it happens, there.
