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 lenovo ideapad 320s do not wake up after sleep. When the device goes into sleep I can hear it is on but the screen do not light up, I have to manually power it down by holding the power key for some time. It all started after I updated the display drivers from lenovo vantage app. I have applied every possible fix but to no avail. The keyboard and mice driver settings do not have power management tab so the widely used fix can't be used. I am using WIndows 10 fall creaters update, all the drivers are latest. Please help.

First off, I'm really sorry but I have no idea where to post this, I'm new here. I'm having a couple of issues which I'm unsure how to solve.  1. When I try to connect to my TV via the HDMI cable (it's an older Samsung TV) the TV picks up my computer and it shows up on the display, but the screen is cut in two. There's a top half and a bottom half, and I can't seem to fix it no matter what I do. I'm tried working with the TV settings, but to no avail.  2. When I load up a new tab in Google Chrome, the mouse either disappears for a few seconds while the new tab loads OR it ends up a few centimeters above the original placement of the mouse (also much more pixelated). How on earth do I solve this one? I tried fiddling around in the settings in Chrome, but that just made it worse so I changed it back.  3. Sometimes when I open a YouTube and maximize the video to fit the screen, it lags and freezes for something like ten seconds and no command will help, not even ctrl+alt+delete. Can I change this somehow? Is this not related to perhaps the battery or energy settings?

I got a Lenovo 320S a few days ago and started it up plugged in. Unfortunately at 100% it says it only has like 2 hours and 15 minutes remaining. It goes through the first 20% pretty quickly but then it slows down and goes up to 4 hours or so. I just left it there for a few minutes or so at 33% and it went down to 5%. Is the battery still stuck in Ship Mode? It's supposed to last for 7 hours. I don't think I can remove the battery and I have already tried an apparent solution where you press the power button for 90 seconds with the PC turned off and then you plug it in again. That does not solve the problem. I'll need to be carrying this PC around so it's pretty urgent.

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

Hi All, I'm looking to upgrade the hard drive in this laptop as it seems to be the only real bottleneck performance wise. From what I can find online only the 2.5" form factor at Sata III 6 GB/s is supported, but there is an adapter for the M.2. form factor but still at 6 GB/s. My main question is is there something I am missing and is this laptop capable of having a PCIe NVMe SSD hard drive to achieve transfer speeds of 32 GB or is it limited to Sata III 6 GB/s because the port option isn't there? - Michael

Hey guys,  I have the Lenovo Ideapad 520 (80YL00RXIN) and wanted to replace the CD Drive with the Samsung 850 Evo 250GB Solid State Drive  in order to increase the Boot Speed and over-all speed of the laptop.  So, the question is, Is the Samsung 850 Evo SSD compatible with my laptop? And will it fit in terms of size, in place of the CD Drive? Also, is it recommended to add the SSD? Any downsides to doing so?  Lastly, will I, someone who knows the basics about computers and the internal components of a computer, be able to install the SSD myself? Or would I rather outsource it to someone who deals in things like this? Thank you. Regards,Neel.

Yesterday afternoon I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 for $499.00 from this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246328

Obviously, it hasn't come in the mail yet. I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in the laptop. It comes with 6gb of RAM, a 4gb stick and a 2gb stick. The problem is, I don't really know what kind of RAM is in the computer. I'm looking to replace the 2gb stick with a second 4gb stick.

The type of RAM the laptop uses is pc3-10600 1333mhz ddr3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin so-dimm socket RAM.

My question is whether or not this RAM is compatible with the laptop: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3T4G3-US/dp/B00591ZYX8

Also, if there is a better option for RAM for this laptop, I'd like to know.
 

A:Solved: Is this RAM compatible with my Lenovo IdeaPad Z575?

Honestly, I think I may have mental problems. It looks like I answered my own question in this post. That RAM is compatible with my laptop. So I guess I'd just like to know if this RAM is the best option for this particular laptop.

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.

Hello, I understand that the specifications on this site say that the 14" Ideapad 320s comes with 4GB of RAM soldered on the motherboard and 4GB of RAM in a DDR4 slot. My question is, can a 16GB DDR4 RAM card be inserted into the DDR4 slot on the motherboard? If not, can you explain why, for a reason other than it is what the specifications say? Just because the laptop isn't sold with more than 8GB of RAM doesn't necessarily mean that it is the maximum RAM that this machine can hold. 64-bit machines running Windows 10 Pro can support up to 512 GBs of RAM, unless there is a BIOS limitation.
