Preferred Solution: Lenovo y700 not starting up/booting

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.)

My Ideacentre has been working fine since I bought it a couple of months ago. Last night it went to sleep and this morning when I tried to wake it up, it wouldn't start up. When I touch the keyboard, or press the power button, the LEDs at the front of the box flash and the fans start spinning, and then everything dies. It looks like there's power for about half a second after which there's nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be wrong?

Hello,  Having an issue with my Y700 ideapad that just popped up yesterday. Whenever I boot my computer up and get to the desktop there will be an audible beep followed by the screen starting to flash black. Every second or so it alternates between black and the desktop preventing anything from being done. Not sure where to start with troubleshooting it but I do have a warranty still on it since this issue only popped up about 6 months into owning it. Any help is much appreciated since I'd like to be able to use my computer again.

if someone else asked that already i am sorry i couldn't find it.i have a Y700-15ISK 80NV and i am just curious about how much ram can i put in it.in almost every site i see 16gb is the max but that doesn't seem right. the cpu supports up to 64 gb so thats not problem.and ddr4 can be found 16gb per stick so on most models that has 2 slots. it means 32gb.which leads me to the strangest thing. by specs of all y700 (and mine) it has only 2 slots of ram.but according to the task manager and cpu z (program) i have 4 slots! which means 64gb of ram!!what is going on??   

A:lenovo y700 max ram

Which Y700 is this?
 
 
Pretty much it looks like that all Y700 models support Upto 16GB RAM.
http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y700-series/y700-15-inch/
 
The hardware maintenance manual also says about 8GB per slot and there are only 2 slots (Pg 78) -
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y700-15_17isk_15acz_touch-15isk_hmm_201510....
 
Anyways, for gaming you dont need more than 8gb of RAM, atleast not yet. I am playing Witcher 3 on Ultra settings with ONLY 8gb of RAM.

Dear All, especialy Lenovo representatives Resently I have bought Lenovo Y700-15ISK with 256SSD only, as I was going to use my existed 2 TB internal HDD. Trying to install mantioned above HDD into laptop I found that for SSD versions Lenovo does not include required HDD cable. I spent hours searching amazon and ebay - but nothing, than i contacted Lenovo support and they told that lenovo is not provideng such a spare part, and advice me not to open up laptop t keep warranty. Do somone have a solution for such an issue? Dear Lenovo team, is such a thing is a normal course of Lenovo business?I think a lot of people around the world will purchase SDD versions to be able to use their HDD with tonnes of informations instead oferred by Lenovo WD slim (which also is not best bay in terms of quality and performance), please advise! 

A:Lenovo Y700 HDD cable

I'm in the same situation as you.I bought  Y700,256 GB SSD version.The cable and bracket not included in it , but the lenovo support is so disapoint to me.This is a half-finish product...I found a site:https://www.encompassparts.com/ that can find these 2 parts.but they said "We don't accept international credit card orders under $200.00"the delivery time is 30 days.   **bleep**...the after-sale service of lenovo is so poor for this... So there is no solution to solve this problem...I'm pretty disgusted with lenovo right now.

I bought my laptop from BH not even 1 month ago and barely used the laptop since I travel a lot. Today in the morning, I was watching a video and laptop just shutdown itself (battery was almost fully charged and unplugged) like you unpluge a TV and the screen disappears. Afterwards, I tried to open it but simply power button does not work. I plugged in the adapter but there is no sign that laptop is working (no lights, no screen, no fans, nothing).I cannot believe I am having such a stupid problem like this. Is there anyone knows what can be the problem and the solution ?  (I already tried to remove the rams and replaced with working rams but nothing changed)Currently I live in Austria and I don't even know if the warranty covers in this country.

Hi CandyDulfer , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
I would help if you specify the type of  Y700 or if you can provide the machine number.
Check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential.
 
Any indicator light when you plug in the charger like a battery charging light?
It would help if you can test the charger itself with a voltmeter if you have the tools and skill by following the power checkup guide from your hardware manual downloadable from the support site (change the product type if needed. Known good adapter can also help to isolate the issue.
 
Since the battery is internal and the issue is with power , it would be best to check technical support if they would be able to assist you for repair as specific models parts may not available in Austria and you may have to contact the location of purchase for in warranty service.

I asked this question on a solved thread, so I wasn't sure if it would ever get answered. Anyway, I bought a Lenovo Y700(model 80NW000PUS), but the 1TB WD blue slim 5400rpm didn't sound too sexy for me. I'm a power user(gaming, AutoCAD, misc.media) so I ordered a 1TB WD Black 7200rpm(It wasn't slim, but it still fit-maybe that was the problem?) and the machine didn't read it at all (the disk manager, nor the BIOS would pick it up), but worked when I switched back to the WD Blue that came with it. I figured the HDD was DOA, so I called Lenovo just to be sure and they told me that the laptop didn't support HDD beyond 1TB 5400rpm. They suggested if I wanted more performance, I could go with an SSHD so long it was still 5400rpm, which I don't believe is worth the trouble. So, I want to know my options, because I can't imagine why a GAMING laptop would not support 7200rpm. I already have an 128GB SSD in the M.2 slot that I boot from. So, basically should I just suck it up and deal with the HDD that it shipped with, or has someone had success with a 7200rpm HDD. If so, is the performance worth the upgrade? Or is an SSHD at 5400rpm worth it? I'm trying to stay at 1TB, so SSDs are out(expensive! Plus, the laptop doesn't support it). Thanks!

Hi!I've purchased my Lenovo Y700 a month ago. But ever since, laptop keeps crashing. Usually it was twice a day. But today since 10 AM (2PM here as I am writing) it have crashed 3 times already.I talked to the shop owner where I've bought the laptop. He have 'tested' it for 2 days and said everything is alright.But after i got it back, it still kept crashing. When i say crashing I mean laptop freezes, artifacts appear on the screen and weird noises get out of the speakers.Since i got laptop back from the shop I've started taking pictures of screen when it freezes and taking videos of it. Here is the link to my folder with photos and videos i've taken.link to the folder I have no idea how to reproduce those crashes.They appear as random. Not necessarily while gaming. It often happens when I am just browsing internet, listening to music, programming, watching videos on youtube. After some research i got to the conclusion that my processor might be defective. After turning off my dedicated GPU (gtx 960m) in BIOS, I've tried to turn CS:GO on integrated graphics (intel graphics hd 530) and it crashed like after 3 minutes. Please. I need some help. I use this laptop for work and those crashes are both dangerous and irritating for me. Specs of laptop:i7 6700HQGTX 960madditional SSD: SAMSUNG MZVPV256 256GBadditional RAM: 16GB (2X 8GB 2133mhz GOODRAM)

So I have recently bought a Lenovo y700 with the FX 8800P and R9 M385x on board and all was well to start. Then I had problems just getting the R9 M385X to work, If anyone has a fix for that please let me know. So I begin to snoop around online and started to realise I have probably made a big mistake buying this laptop. Firstly I really enjoy the look and feel this laptop has but when you look deeper you realise all is not well. See I found out that the FX 8800P is capable of running at 35W and on dual channel ddr3 2133 RAM, and the two hardware components can run in crossfire. Now when you realise that lenovo has done the cheap and mass produced a single mother board for both the Carrizo and Carrizo-L chip sets, meaning that the max watt the FX 8800P is getting is 15W instead of the 35W it can use. Combine this with the fact that this board only supports ddr3 1600 RAM and so far no crossfire support and you can understand why I'm sitting her scratching my head wondering what to do with this laptop that was crippled from the start. Lenovo why can't you just let AMD work how it was supposed to? Please explain!!

Hi everyone! I'm having a few problems which seem serious to me. My laptop (Lenovo Y700 15-ACZ) sometimes restarts randomly without any warning, usually when Youtube, Adobe Reader and Microsoft Word are open, at least that is what I've observed. I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit. I did some tests through the Lenovo Solution Center, all tests came back OK, except the following: -the Memory test gets stuck on the first element, the "Quick random pattern test"-the Graphics test gets stuck on the first one as well, the "Video memory" part The bar wouldn't fill, but I can hear the laptop working and it slowly starts to heat up. Another, miscellaneous problem is an "Unknown device" in the Device Manager, "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)", "on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller". What could be the problem? Could it be a faulty RAM?
