Preferred Solution: Lenovo Vantage(Dust Removal Setting)

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.)

Hello, I need help on my Lenovo Companion app with it's dust removal option.
 
I just bought my Lenovo ideapad 700 for a week now.
 
Previously I had the dust removal option in the Lenovo Quick Optimizer widget on taskbar.
 
After I turned it on, the option never existed anymore in the quick widget and even in Lenovo Companion app itself.
 
Would really love to see this feature again in my new laptop.

A:Lenovo G510 removal of dust

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
According to your model's User Guide the replacement of the hard drive, memory or wireless card is considered CRU activities.  In otherwords those parts can be serviced by the consumer which means you can also remove the back cover without fear of voiding warranty.  Since the fan is now accessible when the cover is removed.... have fun cleaning.  If you use compressed air to clean,  remember to use short bursts of air as prolong blasts may damage the fan's bearings.
 
For your reference, here is a link to that User Guide......

iam using lenovo ideapad y700 is there any way to use dust removing option like it was in y5070iam using windows 10

A:lenovo y700 dust removal option

Unfortunately, I haven't seen a setting for it. However, unlike previous builds, the filter looks fine enough to catch anything that would get caught up in the fan. Your best bet would be to use compressed air to blow back through the rear vents to loosen up any dust on the bottom of your PC.

A:Lenovo Energy Management - Where is my Dust Removal button?

hi lyczewskiand,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
If this is the Dust removal that you are saying.

 
If your system is Windows 8.1
    Open Control Panel / Uninstall a program and uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management that is currently installed.
 
Now try and install this version
 Lenovo Power Management  
 
Check if this can be found on this version

 
If not can you post a screenshot of what showing up on your end.
Thanks,

Aside from this, night light in Win10 also stopped working. It is not grey out, but no effect regardless on or off. Can anyone that is on 1803 confirm this?

In this first screenshot of Lenovo Vantage running under Windows 10 (64) on my X1 Yoga (1st generation), please notice where it says that I need to install Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105.  However, in the second screenshot, please notice where the Installation History shows that Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 was successfully installed already. Everytime I boot up and run Lenovo Vantage to check for updates, it tells me that I need Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 so I let it install it. Everytime I install it, the installation appears to be successful and my computer reboots, but then after rebooting, Lenovo Vantage again tells me that (1) I need it, (2) I already have it. This is crazy.  In the third screenshot (looking at Windows Device Manager) I see the Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A. The fourth screenshot shows that it is disabled.  I will enable this and then retry to install the updated. I'll report back in a second posting on this thread whehter it works.  (I would leave this posting open and finish it later, but I'm afraid it woud all be lost when I reboot).   

A:ENDLESS LOOP: Lenovo Vantage Tells Me To Update a Driver That Vantage Says Is Already Up to Date.

After enabling the driver in Windows Device Manager, then again trying to update, the update was successful. After another reboot, Lenovo Vantage no longer show that this needs to be updated.  I'm no programmer, but it seems to me that the Lenovo Vantage update program ought to be able to see whether a driver is disabled and to tell the user to enable it in order to allow successful of updating of the driver.

I have been wondering why there are two methods to get updates for my X1 Extreme.One update method is via the Lenovo Vantage application (under Windows 10 Programs)The other method is to go to the Lenovo Support page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-...); I used the full URL with model number, but you can also use the main support page and use 'Dectect Product' which uses Lenovo Service Bridge to detect the laptop model and serial #. I have used both, but am probably going to stick with Lenovo Vantage. Which method are most of you using? PSell is similar in this regard. They also have multiple update apps / methods for some reason.

I read other posts and none specifically addressed this for the 920 and the use of what is actually a good Lenovo config tool seems to be poorly documented.   I would think it would be the same for any Yoga model with Windows 10 and Lenovo Vantage installed.   I can't seem to find a version for Vantage, so hopefully this works on all versions.    1) Find and open Lenovo Vantage on your machine (use Cortana if needed).   This is the Responsive view and yours may look different...don't worry, options are the same.  Click on Hardware settings  2)  Click on Input (again, responsive view...whatever view you have should have this button labeled the same)  3)  This will open the Hardware Setting - Input UI.   Under 'Function Keys' click on the one that is labeled 'F1-F12' (should look like below, highlighted in blue) to make that the the Function the default setting for those keys...to further clarify: it will now be a Function Key (F1-F12) by default.    With this change, you will press the FN+ one of the function key for the Hot Key option (e.g. FN+F1=mute/unmute, FN+F2=volume down, etc.)     4)  Your change is already saved, so you can now X-out (click X in the upper right) of the pop-up windows created by that were created

Hey all ... here is a screenshot of the current state of affairs: Note: this is the Win 10 Pro 64-bit OS, Version 1803 ... Windows Update is ' ... up to date'. I have tried various Lenovo Vantage Critical / Recommended / Optional update selections (in their respective groups and / or alone) and re-booted every time following failed system updates ... I cannot seem to break whatever log jam is occurring here. I thought perhaps trying the IME 11.6 Firmware - 10 [64] - V.11.8.55.3510 update alone, or, the ThinkPad BIOS Update - 10 [64] - V.2.26.1.18 update alone (they are both 'Reboot Required' updates) might get me past this issue, however, so far, no joy.  There is a 'Fully charged (100%)' battery installed in the system. Thanks for any insights offered, FFF P.S.  I would also be interested to find a Lenovo drivers list of older Synaptics Pointing Device (ThinkPad UltraNav / Touchpad) drivers for my P70 machine ... does such a historical driver resource exist?  The reason being, the more recent touchpad drivers are unsuitable for me ... too sensitive / 'sticky' (adjustment of various touchpad settings doesn't cure the usability issues) ... I much preferred the behaviours of the earlier drivers but can now only Roll Back to Driver Version: 19.3.4.202 (16-Jan-18) ... I'd much rather use the July 2017 driver version, whatever the version number was (possibly 19.3.4.112).

Hey I'm a noobie when it come to the internal components of a laptop, lately my laptop has been overheating and a guy I asked at geek squad said an air compressor should be more then suffient to remove dust ( I even specifically said it hasn't been dusted for a year and I believe it is clogged with dust). My first question is, what is a heat sink? Is it connected to the fan?

And also, is removing the fan and cleaning it possible without needing any special items (such as needing thermal paste for a heat sink)

What happens if you don't use thermal paste, what's wrong with just putting everything back together? And is it the heat sink that's a problem in my situation or is it my fan or both?

A:Laptop internal dust removal

You can usually get way with a can of compressed air and with the battery removed and unplugged blast some air through the vents (use a toothpick or something to hold the fan still).

It would also help to post make/model of your laptop, we then might be able to help you remove the access panels to blast air in them as well.

Heatsinks are to disperse the heat away (usually look like small fins) some have fans on them some don't....would help to know make/model.

Does anyone actually know if the "Dust Removal" in the energy management program actually works to remove dust from the laptop? I'm a bit reluctant to open up and dissect my laptop to check for any dust accumulation at this point, since everything has been running fine.This question came to mind since I saw that the filter at the bottom of my laptop was kinda caked in fine dust - wondered if the same was inside my laptop. I got the laptop in December 2012.

A:Dust removal in Ideapad Y580

hi marshchen,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
That application can only minimized collection of dust in the Exhaust system of your Laptop.
    Since the process of the vents is to get air fom the outside to pass through the heatsink . Dust collection cannot really be avoided.
    
   One symptom of a fan and vent dust is that when the vents blow very hot and minimal air and the laptop is heating up more than usual.
 
A yearly cleaning would be ok.
  You can refer to the Maintenance Manual of this model on how to open the cover and get to the heat sink.
You might also want to refresh and apply new Thermal paste to the Heat sink.
 
Just be careful on the plastic parts and also wear an anti static starp. If you're not comfortable doing this, You can opt to have a repair center do this.
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver
