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've had this problem ever since the computer came out of the box about a year ago. Hasn't bothered me too much, but I'd finally like to see it fixed. What happens is that at random times during my computer use, a "Battery at critical low level" dialog box will pop up for a few seconds then disappear. I haven't found a pattern to it, sometimes it'll happen twice within five minutes, sometimes not at all during my session. It doesn't seem correlated with battery percentage either as I've had it hppen a various battery levels. It is not like the "Your battery is low (10%)" dialog. The pop up doesn't show a battery percentage, it only says that it is at a critical level. Any ideas how I can get the problem to go away?  Thanks!

Hi Lenovo Forum,I wanted to ask for help and advice on whether there is a need for my Flex 4 laptop to update its BIOS.It's my first time opening the Lenovo companion app that came with the laptop and I noticed that there is one critical update.  Here is the installation history: Here is the system info from the companion app Now my question is, do I have to update this or simply ignore it?Just to clarify, I'm not really a tech savvy person. I am unsure if this is safe or not. I read from other sites that updating the BIOS may have risks of bricking the laptop and make it unusable. So, I really need help if I should proceed with the update or leave as it is. The current situation right now is, everything seems to be working fine. I am near my warranty expiration. The only complaints that I have is that whenever I leave my laptop and set it to sleep by 11PM, I open it the next morning and the battery is all drained to 1%. This does not happen all the time, but for it may happen quite frequently. Here is my battery information And one other complain is that, even if I set it to sleep mode, sometimes, I do hear the laptop fan go really loud. I am also not sure why that happens. But I hope all my additional information would be helpful on determining if my computer has issues and if I do really need to update the BIOS. Any type of help would be appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT Upon checking this link:http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/flex-series/flex-4-1570/80sb/80sb000... It seems like I have dozens of things to update that doesn't even show in the Lenovo Companion App.Most importantly, this has the latest BIOS:BIOS Update for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Notebook0VCN25WW(V1.09) I am not sure what is the necessary version or required updates. This is quite confusing.

Hello,As the title says I have a strange problem ? I get error 0190 (Critical low-battery error) where at the same time my battery is full on my brand new ThinkPad Edge E531. Of course I already searched for threads with similar issue and I found this one: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/X1-0190-critical-low-battery-error-but-battery... . It appears that my case is quite identical with the one of user ?gilsont?. I have noticed that whenever I leave my laptop shut down for a longer period of time with almost full battery, it displays error 0190 on next start up followed by a beep sound and shut down. You may ask ?Why are you asking us? You already have the problem ? the battery?. Well the problem is not that simple. I already returned the laptop (on 3rd day after I got it) to the store where I bought it and respectively they sent it to their tech service. After few days I was informed that they couldn?t find anything wrong with it or its battery. I instructed them how they may reproduce the error but again without any result ? still nothing. Now I am in a bit confusing situation, I can?t prove that there is something faulty with this machine. I am not aware of the circumstances needed to trigger this error. My question is ? could it be a single case, maybe the battery wasn?t fully activated at that time or something like dirt on the battery connector interfered? I really don?t know what to do.Note: I encountered the problem 2 times... Read more

I have looked at the forum posts regarding the "0190 critical low-battery error" boot up problem, but mine seems a little different.  My problem with my T510 Thinkpad (Windows 7, 64 bit) is as follows: (1)  When I attempt to boot up with the AC adapter only (no battery) I get the 0190 error.  The T510 afterwards shuts down immediately.  I cannot seem to get into the BIOS by pressing the ThinkVantage button to interrupt the boot up process. (2)  When I put in a good battery, even one charaged at only 10-15% or more, then I can boot into Windows with no problem.  My T510 must have a battery in place in order to boot up.  The AC adapter alone gives the 0190 error as mentioned.  (my AC adapter is standard Lenovo issue). (3)  One would think this points to a problem with the AC adapter, but it's important to note that my battery will still charge up to 100% if the AC adapater is plugged in!  Therefore, the adapter is not totally disfunctional.  While the machine gets the 0190 error on the adapter alone, the adapter is capable of charging the battery. (4)  I should note that I'm using the latest BIOS v.1.5.2 for the T510, as of June 29, 2015. (5)  Note also that others with the 0190 issue seem to have the opposite problem.  Namely, they can boot up with the AC adapter only, but have trouble with the battery in place.   My questions:  What can I do to get rid of the 0190 err...

Hi Jim_Rockford,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
This kind of issue occurs either with power circuit of the laptop or with the power adapter, is there anyone who is using the same model laptop, so that we can verify changing the adapter.
 
This might not resolve the issue but you can check with performing power drain. To perform please remove the AC power adapter & battery, after that press and hold the power button for 30 seconds perform this step for 2 or more times.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

I have recently purchased a brand new Lenovo Legion Y520 15IKBM (Specs: i7 7700HQ, 16GB RAM, 128gb SSD + 1TB HDD, GTX 1060) and I'm liking it so far. It would be perfect for me if it wasn't for a couple issue that have been plaguing me. First: sometimes the system takes relatively long to boot. Usually it'll just show me Lenovo's logo for a couple of seconds and take me straight to the login screen, but sometimes it would stay on the logo for 10-15 seconds (without even showing the circling "loading" dots), then the screen would go blank for a few extra seconds and only then I would be on the login screen. And when it does that, the system continues to be considerably slower than usual even after login. Rebooting the system (sometimes twice) fixes the issue entirely. This happens regardless of whether or not the laptop is plugged in, but it seems to happen consistently on the first time I turn on the laptop after unplugging it. There are also times where, when I turn off the laptop, the screen turns off but the keyboard, power LED and fans are still powered for a LONG time. The second issue would be the system freezing seemingly at random, no matter if I'm playing a game or doing lightweight work. The whole OS would just lock up and either unfreeze after 10 to 30 seconds or straight up bluescreen with a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I would provide a memory dump, but apparently the system is set by default to not create any. That, and sometimes it would just bluescreen ... Read more

Hello all. I am about to buy the Legion Y520-15IKBN. It's the i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060  version. I have 2 questions though before I buy it.  1. I have a Seagate Barracuda 5TB 2,5" HDD, a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 500GB and a HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4-2400 laptop RAM. Can I install them on this model or if I open it it will void the warranty?  2. The laptop comes with no OS. I have Windows 10 on my desktop PC. Since Windows are connected to the Outlook account (I think), will I be able to install and activate them on the laptop or I have to buy new? Thank you very much for any answers

Hey all,  Just recently bought a Lenovo Y520 gaming laptop. Overall very satisified with it! Last week I added an SSD drive to it and decided to do a fresh reformat from the BIOS so the laptop would run at full power without any bloatware holding it back.  Did the reformat sucessfully, installed all drivers, and now the laptop is running perfectly, except for one thing.  Since the reformat, Wifi has been giving me constant problems. I've tried just about every solution available on the net but so far have had no luck. It's main issue is: when I go to power on the laptop after being turned off for an extended period of time (at least 8-10 hours), there's no wifi at all whatsoever. Windows doesn't detect my wifi at all, even under network adapters! I've downloaded the latest drivers directly from Lenovo and even took it one step further by getting direct drivers from intel themselves. In this condition, it only detects my ethernet port, so when I go to diagnose it, it doesn't consider Wifi an issue because it doesn't think it exists.  The ONLY solution to get Wifi to work for me is to restart the computer at least once, load up the BIOS, go to the Configurations tab and disable/re-enable Wireless Lan. After that, I boot it with the saved changes and boom, Wifi suddenly works again. Thing is, I shouldn't have to do this every time to get Wifi to work. Before the reformat, the Wifi was working absolutely fine with no issues whatso... Read more

Hey guys, I just bought this computer today and I have encountered this problem. When I go to control panel -> display / dxdiag / AIDA64, I can only see Intel HD 630, but not my GTX 1050. I have tried reinstalling latest drivers and I changed the settings in NVIDIA control panel. I am using Windows 10 Pro. Thank you  

A:Lenovo Y520 dedicated GPU not showing

Hi Adomce123, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Have you tried running dx diag with a high graphic application software running alongside?
 
The automatic switch from Intel to NVIDIA would happen when there is demand for it thus you were allowed to re install NVIDIA drivers and use the NVIDIA control setting since it was available in your system. This can also be checked in your device manager as well as lenovo diagnostics to confirm if the NVIDIA device if available.
 
Try going in the BIOS and verify options under Configuration Menu for graphic device to run on Discrete or UMA only as option. F10 to save setting before exit.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards

Hi, I'm thinking of buying a new laptop and am deciding to go with the lenovo y520 80WK004UMH.Before I want to buy the laptop, I want to know a few things: - Is in mine model an m.2 slot available for an SSD upgrade and is it available in every lenovo y520 model?- Does any upgrades void the warranty?- What do you think of the gtx 1050 4gb card? Is it good enough to run most modern games on it, I don't expect them to play everything at ultra mode, but I'm pretty satisfied to play most games 60 fps on medium to high.- Has the i7 7700HQ a huge benefit for increase in gaming performance or is the i5 7300HQ fine? And yes, the more you spend, the better you'll get, the more future proof your laptop is. I'm kinda short on money, so I won't be able to go over ?1000,00 euro's. Thank you! Best regards, TheClient

The deal is that my 2 month old y520 is showing really low perfomance especially in Battlefield 1.
