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.)

The warranty was for 2 years and the problem appeard after 2 years and 2 month only, giving that the device is not cheap.

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.

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!

Hello. Recently I have bought SSD M.2 disk (so far using only HDD). I installed win 7 64bit on it, updated BIOS from v52 to v53 (using .exe from Y700 support page). That's where the problem starts.As soon as the BIOS logo shows up, the fan starts to run quite loud. If I enter BIOS settings, it just keeps going and won't stop, which wasn't happening on previous BIOS version. I even tried installing previous version v35, then go back again to 53. Also restoring default settngs. Nothing worked.If I start system normally, after loading everything and 1-2 minutes of waiting fan goes queit, as it should be. But when I start e.g. browsing internet fan goes loud again. I checked temperatures - cpu, gpu and disks are all below 40 C degree, CPU usage is also low (10-15%), so I can't find a reason fans would be so loud.I also have installed (reinstalled too) Lenovo Energy Management. What I have noticed, is that when fan is running, if I open LEM, and then close it, fan stops for a second the very same moment I close it, and then start running again.Also, changing active/passive cooling CPU doesn't have any effect. To sum up:- fan is running non-stop in BIOS ( I don't think it's normal)- if I don't do anything, fan is quiet, but doing even simple thing like internet browsing makes it run loud. I have read many topics about fan problems but nothing is working for me so far.  Edit:Also, from what I have read, there is no possibility to manually control fan/set temperature t...

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!

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.

Hi, so I recently got a Lenovo Y700. I haven't had a computer in a while and since I'm going to attend college soon but also enjoy gaming I decided to get this laptop, as it's mobile and seems to be quite powerful.

Initially when I got the laptop, it was having a ton of problems, couldn't connect to the internet, didn't want to install or save certain things, and was a real mess. So I returned it and got a replacement. The replacement has been working much better, but I'm still having some issues with it, mostly with gaming. I've had the new one for about a week or so.

I'm aware games will be crashing more often on a computer than a console, but the frequency just seems unusual to me. I'm having a particularly weird crash when I'm playing skyrim. Instead of completely crashing, the game will minimize every 10 or 15 minutes. I can easily just reopen it, but it seems to become more and more frequent. The most irritating part of this is that after reopening it for the second or third time, the desktop cursor will also appear in game giving me 2 cursors. I looked this up and couldn't really find a solution to it, and it seemed to be exclusive to skyrim, but it's just another nuisance. It seems like the problem may be when an app attempts to launch in the background but I haven't noticed any when this happens for me. Also, just today skyrim has started freezing. Vanilla, my computer opened skyrim on ultra, and was getting pretty good (at least 30 fps? don't have fraps insta... Read more

Hello everybody. So I have a Lenovo y700 with 16gb ram, 1tb HDD but I don't have any SSD. I have seen people on Youtube who either upgrade their existing SSD's or just simply install an SSD instead of an HDD. However my questions is, can I install an SSD to my laptop which has no SSD to begin with. Also, if there is a way I can, can you please suggest a good model of SSD? Thank you guys for your attention.

Hi all,  I'm planning on upgrading the RAM in my Y700-15ISK system, I recently installed a 1tb SSHD and this is my next step. My only issue is that I'm not sure on what RAM is applicable, using sites such as Kingston's system scanner and also Crucial's doesn't show my system specs accurately and therefore I don't feel all too confident about their results. After looking into is seems I need DDR4 SO-DDIM which is running at 1.2v and 2133MHz. I currently have (1x4GB) installed and I am planning on upgrading to a 16GB kit (2x8GB). After looking about I came to find this: http://www.ebuyer.com/728407-corsair-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-sodimm-2133mhz-c15-memory-kit-cmso16gx4m2a2133c...Does anyone have any opinions? Thanks.

Had this laptop for about a year now and it has worked wonderfully. But the past few weeks it has randomly stopped charging for about a second or 2 then it starts charging again. Except just now, it stopped charging altogether. There are a few times here and there where it would charge for a fraction of a second. Think the problem is the laptop itself or the charger?

A:Lenovo y700 not charging

There is actually no real way to determine whether it's the charger or the laptop right off the bat, we can only speculate and make assumptions that are MOST LIKELY true.BUY A NEW CHARGER. If your laptop does charge, most likely it's your charger. EDIT: Also, let me mention that if your charger will charge for a second then stop, and it keeps doing that or you keep plugging it in and out while it's doing that, you can very quickly damage your battery. It happened to me.

Hi, I recently purchased this laptop and it was working fine for the few days. Now, after about 5 minutes into a game, the screen freezes and I am unable to do anything leaving me to turn off the power manually (WoW, CSGO, LoL all share this trait). I have run tests on how hot the computer is getting and it starts off around 60 and raises to 71-75 before staying at that level for about 3 minutes then freezing. I have factory reset this laptop in hopes there was a software option but the problem persists. For a gaming laptop, this seems like a problem that should never exist and I am left to believe that this may be a factory defect and return it. Any thoughts?
