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, I have a new Lenovo ideapad 120s which came with Windows 10. My daughter got a popup for a bios update and clicked without knowing what it was. After the bios update the screen is dark after reboot so I suspect the computer is now bricked. I found a tutorial for resetting the bios by disconnecting the battery, but that didn't work. I was wondering if this model has a way of overwriting the bios via usb (I've seen descriptions of such a solution for other Lenovo models)? Full name / model: Lenovo ideapad 120S-14IAPModel name: 81A5

This IDEAPAD 120S I purchased from Best Buy recently has only 32GB HD. I purchased a 64GB expansion sd card however the update to Creators Update still says "need 8GB free". With a barebones fresh install there is very little free HD space for the update. Thanks,

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

A:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I am a new owner of a Ideapad 120S purchased yesterday on Black Friday.I have mostly owned Dell laptops previously. I am guessing that when I power the laptop the first thing I need to do is create a backup on a USB flash drive. Any gotchas I should know about?    

A:new owner of Ideapad 120S

Yep, backing up is a good practice.  
 
Other than that, you should be good to go.  Enjoy your new machine!

so yesterday afternoon, I was watching a youtube video and realized that the spacebar was no longer functioning as a play/pause button. I then realized that none of the other keys were working other than the power button. I followed the troubleshooting steps here. I did the last step, which seemed to work for a short time, yet when I went to youtube again and used the touchpad to forward the video, the keyboard stopped working again. I went to do step 3 again, but this time, it would continuously enter one letter. I shut down my laptop 3 times, and the same thing happened all 3 times. finally, I let the battery drain and powered it on this morning. the keyboard can no longer be fixed by use of step 3. I am using the on-screen keyboard now which is very time-consuming and which has been working throughout this entire process.

Would connecting an external USB keyboard work?
 
As mentioned on the guide, " If failed keys do not work, the issue should be PC hardware issue with high possiblity" , you may need to call in technical support for the issue.

Hi, I have a new Ideapad 120S that I really enjoy using.  However after only a few months use it won't accept Windows 10 Upgrade. I've put very little on this machine, probably no more than maybe 500 MB of files and installed programs.  There are no movies, no downloaded music, none of that. System cleanup has been done and Recycle Bin is empty.  It keeps telling me I need to delete 8 GB of data. Say whaaaat??  I show about 2 GB free right now. It's obvious that there is space being taken up, probably by a system file, perhaps hidden. I saw a number of posts online complaining about a large file associated with an upgrade taking up valuable space on this small 32GB drive.  So, what do I do?  I like the computer.  I understand the necessity of maintaining updates to the operating system. But something is really amiss here where such a new computer won't allow O/S updates.  What's the secret to opening up the drive space?  I don't want to return it because of this.  Thanks! Ken

Sorry for the cross-post but thought it best to post a new topic to be specific.Following on from this topic... Are there any 120S variants that have eMMC and the M.2 port? Unless some variant shipped without the M.2 connector, I would suggest all of them have it. From the manual, even the 120S-11IAP with HDD variant still looks like it has the M.2 port - not that you can use it (the battery appears to interfere). In fact, if all variants ship with the M.2 connector, then the only variant that cannot use the M.2 port would be the 120S-11IAP with HDD, yes..?!?! The units without a HDD appear to have an "L" shaped battery pack that occupies the HDD location exposing the M.2 slot.Can anyone confirm whether the 81A5008SAU variant sold in Australia has the M.2 connector and "L" shaped battery pack...?

Now I don't actually know if this is the correct subject to put this on, but when I looked for it the settings it said my laptop is an Ideapad 120S-11IAP, so this is close enough. Essentially the title. Usually happens when I'm playing games set in a Google Chrome window (likely HTML urls). Help would be appreciated, as it's annoying as hell to want to peek at a Youtube video and then go back to the game to see my progress has been lost.

Hello everyone, bought this laptop couple of weeks ago, running fine EXCEPT... Right side USB3-port is somehow broken/malfunctioning/etc., when I plug in my external 500GB Transcend Storejet USB3 drive it won´t get detected at all, not in Windows (just updated to 1803 without cure), nor in UEFI setup or in Live Linux. In Windows, all that I get is constant Windows detection sound, that continues as long as drive is plugged in. Strange thing is that all other devices like mobile phones, USB sticks or mouse work just fine in that port. And same external drive works just fine when plugged into left side port. And of course in other computers as well. Maybe this is some kind of power issue? And if so is this a feature or system failure? One would assume that all ports can provide adequate power to USB devices?

Similar to other models not listed, system was not tested by Lenovo, and updated drivers may not be available.
It does not however prevent users from exploring the said build but do take note of the limitations that can be a challenge.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Am still setting new Yoga 910 with Windows 10-64bit and needed to reinstall the Lenovo Settings and Companion apps to get them to run (it seems after I installed the service bridge - LSB). They opened, sat thinking for a minute ot two, and returned a message that I needed to restart the PC or reinstall their drivers. Restart did not fix, so I d/l'd and reinstalled driver packages it directed me to. Problem fixed - sort of. Now, I cannot open Windows Menu and type "lenovo" to select and run either app. Nothing happens when I click them (cannot right-click to uninstall/run either). Instead, I need to open Windows Menu, scroll to Lenovo section, and run them from there. How do I fix the search --> run behavior? Is this a Cortana thing and if so how do I flush its search cache? Thanks in advance...
