Q: Lenovo Flex 4 graphics issue

I had bought Lenovo Flex 4 1580 in December 2016, Lenovo official website shows that this laptop has AMD R7 M460 Graphics Card, but my system shows AMD R7 M360 Graphics Card. Why is this showing me previous version graphics card? Will it get restrored to default if i reset my Windows 10?

I recently updated to the Windwos 10 Fall Creators update (Build 1709, 16299.125), and as soon as I updated, the graphics driver failed and switched to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I tried updating and rolling back the driver without success. My driver right now is at the latest version (10.18.10.4358). I already tried fixing this issue with Microsoft support but they couldn't find any solutions. Microsoft Support Link: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/intel-hd-graphics-not-working-...

To whom it may concern,
I have a Lenovo Flex 2-14, and had problems with Lenovo Transition after I had upgraded my operating system to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1.
Simply, Lenovo Transition stopped working in stand and tent modes.
Here is how I have fixed the problem.
Step-1: Uninstall Lenovo Transition and reboot your laptop.
Step-2: Install Lenovo Transition 2.1  from http://lenovo.support.com/tr/tr/downloads/ds101908
Step-3: Open Device Manager under Control Panel and update the driver for Intel(R) HD Graphics
Step-4: Make sure that Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow rotates the screen 180 degrees. Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow will bring the screen to its normal position.
Step-5: Bring your laptop to the tent mode and check if the screen rotates.
I hope this helps.

Hello,I have been facing a problem with my Flex 2 15 after windows 10 home upgrade.I've set the power options to do nothing when I close the lid, sometimes I close the lid and open it to find the machine shut down. This doesn't happen everytime though. Has anyone else had this problem before? Edit: I also noticed that after I start the laptop again, the battery conservation mode is disabled -which I normaly keep on all the time-, could this be related to the issue? Edit 2: I noticed that this happens in conservation mode -since the battery is not charging- and when I press a certain area under the laptop. I guess it's a loose battery. Is this common in this model? Edit 3: It's not a power issue. whenever a certain area right under the ventillation opennings below is pressed the laptop goes off. Any body ever experienced this?

I accidentally deleted my nvidia graphics drivers, and the latest version doesnt work. Knowing the drivers which came with the computer will let me re install them. Thanks.

A:Lenovo flex 3 1580 Nvidia graphics drivers fabric version

You might check to see if the earlier drivers are still present on your system by doing the following Right-click on StartSelect Device ManagerLeft-click on Display Adapters to expand.Right-click on your display adapter, and select Update DriverSelect "Browse my computer for driver software"Select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"This should provide a list of drivers previously installed on your systemTo switch to one of them, choose an older driver and click Next.It would be hard to know exactly what driver was installed when your system was new, because Lenovo does not provide release notes for its drivers as its certifies them, but older drivers for the Nvidia 940M card should be available from Nvidia, as well as newer driver versions that those release by Lenovo that may resolve your problem. which can be found here https://www.geforce.com/drivers Good Luck,

Hi, I recently purchased a refurb Lenovo Flex 3 1480 model and I am starting to see problems with the display that others have noted on here.  It sometimes flickers on and off and occassionally completely turns off and will not come back on without a restart.   So in troubleshooting this issue I have upgraded my BIOS to version DCN32WW from DCN28WW.  This was more difficult than it sounds because for some reason the PC identified the older DCN28WW as the newer firmware.  I had to override the setting in the BIOS to allow it to install the "older"firmware DCN32WW.  Made no sense. The latest thing I am trying to do is update the Intel VGA 520 display driver to the latest version published on 7/16/16 ver. 20.19.15.4454.  I downloaded the installer from the Flex 3 1480 section of the suppport site. When I try to install it, however, it tells me it is not compatible with my device.  I have tried uninstalling the driver and then installing the newest one and it still won't install.  The driver currently on my machine is 20.19.15.4364.  Can someone explain why I cannot get the newest display driver to install on my laptop?

?I bought a laptop, Lenovo flex -1570 from US through amazon.com, for my father's birthday present. Thanks for ruining it in a way that I could have never imagined. In just 2 days of laptop usage, the mouse pad has come out. The amazing service center in India (ticket no. HT014716010) said that the glue that held mousepad to the laptop "WASN'T STICKY ENOUGH" and added that they do not support this laptop as its "international warranty" is limited to US and China and I need to take it to your US service center to fix it. $619 laptop, 2 days, and it is nothing more than a junk box to me. As a birthday present I have gifted my father nothing more than added tension and thanks to you guys for making that happen. Attaching a pic for your reference. ?

I recently purchased a new Pioneer DDJ SB2 DJ controller. Upon downloading the neccessary software and firmware from Serato DJ and Pioneer, I connected my controller to my computer via usb cord provided by Pioneer. However, when I opened Serato to start playing around, a error message came up saying that my hardware was disconnected. I looked up support from Serato as I thought it was a software issue. I quickly realized it wasn't after going through all the troubleshooting steps they provided. I then asked my friend to try out the program on his computer (MacBook), to see if it was a software issue or a computer problem. As expected it instantly worked on his laptop without any issues. I determined it was a problem with my computer. I took it to Geek Squad so they could have a look. Unable to fix it, they believe its a Windows 10 issue. So now I am coming to Lenovo to see if they can fix this problem. I find it ridiculous that out of nowhere my computer can no longer detect a usb plug in from my iPhone, external harddrive, and DJ controller.  Has anybody else had these issues?Specs: Windows 10Version 1607Intel Core i78.00GB RAM64-bit operating system

I've noticed for some time that my relatively new ~1 year Lenovo Flex 4 yoga, which has switchable graphics, has been running slower.  For instance, VLC has been unable to run certain movies, and running gameshow to record my powerpoint talks now leads to freezing and inability to save movies.  I finally found some free time to try a very basic 3D game (broforce, the overworld, 2 seconds into the game), and then my computer instantly slowed and shut itself off.  I downloaded the Heaven Benchmark 4.0 and the same issue occured, it barely rendered graphics and then froze.  I have all of the latest drivers and updates installed via a clean install.   Put simply, my computer is now completely unable to perform the most basic tasks that seem to be gpu related without slowing to a crawl and shutting itself off.  This includes very old games, new games, benchmarks, and even python rendering medium to large images.   Please please advise some tests I can do to see if this is a software issue.  I work a very very very hard job and this computer is my lifeline, and I need it not to have this issue.

Hello, I have had my Lenovo Flex 4-1470 laptop for about half a year now, have always taken careful precaution when carrying it, etc. Recently, Upon touching the touchscreen on the right side and bottom of the screen, I am experiencing these "ghost" or "phantom" touches where I touch that part of the screen and it presses on a random part of the screen. The middle and left sides of the screen do not seem to be affected, however, the top of the screen seems to refuse to calibrate to my finger correctly despite calibrating the screen many times. I have updated the touchscreen driver to find that I already have the best and newest version so that cannot be my issue. I have seen that this was a common issue on the Yoga 3-14, and that there was a firmware fix to this... So far the only "fix" I have seen to this issue is disabling the touchscreen altogether, but I bought this laptop specifically for the touchscreen capabilities. I have not physically damaged the laptop, so I am curious on why this is happening.  Is there a firmware fix or something to that extent or will I have to send the laptop to Lenovo and get it repaired? Any Help would be appreciated --Kaitlyn

I have a LeNovo Flex 3 1480 [80R3] for about a year with zero problems. The only modded thing is a Sandisk 480gb SSD drive, with a Windows 10 installation from scratch, installed in the very first day I bought this machine. I was running Windows 10 version 1607 normally, and really enjoying this machine, but since last week when I was booting up, the machine freezed at bootscreen (the one with the lenovo logo) and then restarted showing the message "Preparing Automatic Repair" that took almost a whole day to pass. The repair never happened and I had to use the option to reset windows maintaining my personal files.

A:G50-70 - issue regarding amd r5 m230 graphics card 2gb on lenovo g50-70

hi Ashish1793,
 
If you're running on Windows 7 64bit, can you consider the following:
1. Navugate to the Control Panel (icon views) > Display Adapters and uninstall both the Intel and AMD Display driver then reboot.
2. Install the Intel Display Driver first then reboot.
3. Install the AMD Dislpay Driver (the files will be extracted drivers to the C:\Drivers\VGA folder - overwrite if prompted and reboot if necessary)
 
When finished,  you should now have both the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and AMD R5 M230 in the Device Manager > Display Adapters
 
If you get a Code 43 error on the AMD Display Device Manager, try to install the AMD R5 M230 driver directly from AMD website and observe.
 
If you have Windows 8.1, download the Intel and AMD Display driver from the G50-70 drivers page and install them respectively.

Greetings, I have currently installd a fresh version of windows 7 professional onto a lenovo aio A700. After doing all the updates for the operating system as well as reinstalling the drivers using the disk that came with the pc. I have since done updates to those drivers. Basically I have installed and reinstalled them a few times now trying to resolve the issue that the PC continues to freeze when adjusting any graphic settings as well as just having the pc promt me for the admin password. The freeze will take place when trying to change background both in aero and basic themes. The changes ultimately process but the PC is unresponsive for an average of 5minutes while it resolves itself.  The drivers used were on the driver disk and also those provided on the lenovo site and on the intel site as of today 12/14/16 Aside from that issue the PC is perfect in how the rest of it works. If any one has any solutions thank you!

Hello all, Im experiencing an issue with my quadro card specifically. It seems like within the last week or two most apps that I have associated with the quadro specifically do not start and just hang, not responding. Additionally, though maybe unrelatedly, the lock screen occasionally freezes and does not come into focus. Other times the screensaver tries to load a slideshow, but ultimately fails to show anything until I click on somewhere and it flashes by briefly before returning to the login prompt. According to the "solution center", the GPU is functioning and passes the tests with green. I have disabled the usual windows update cycle and only update manually occasionally, the most recent being within a month of these issues beginning. The following may be unrelated: I did recently install Duet so I can use an Apple tablet as a mobile second screen, which is when I first noticed something potentially wrong, but possibly it was wrong before that.

I want to switch the graphics drivers to the ATI Radeon drivers and chipsets /video card. My Catalyst Controll Center drivers are installed but they won't load because another driver or application or system is blocking them. I do not know which is the case because the error message is incomplete and I can not read the complete message.. I am also mystified because the product I purchased from Lenovo was a W500 with the ATI FirePro V5700 card (512 MB of VRAM). I used to see this card in my device driver when I first used the PC. But since last November the Device Manager has declaimed that the card is an HD 3650 card. I've made no physical change in the system. Also, the little green battery icon system that used to reside in the TASKBAR haqs disappeared. I don't understand where this icon went to and why did it go?

Is there a way to open the back of the laptop W500 and to visually confirm that the video card is properly installed in the motherboard. I am refering to the idea that the card has been disconnected from the motherboard. I recall that the Lenovo support site had a schematic diagram of the video card's installation but I can not find it today. Does anyone have any idea as to how I can confirm the that the video card is plugged in and working?

My wife's Flex 14 stopped charging. I am thinking that battery is old and need replacement (I hope), but when I look on the Lenovo site, I do not see the battery. I tried contacting Lenovo, who argued with me that the battery is sealed (wrong), but finally send me to Emcompass parts. They looked up the serial number and was able to correctly identify the computer, but could not find the part number for the battery. They then transfer me to Geek Squad for some reason. I did see a few battery on sale at Amazon, but they appear to be greatly smaller in capacity (2200 instead of 3560 ma). Anyone know how I can order the higher capacity battery or at least locate the actual part number ? Is this normal, I never had issue getting batteries for my Dells. Paul

hi synes55
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
When you press the Power to turn it on start hitting the Fn+F2 and F2 only simultaneously.
It should get you to a bios settings
   Go to the Configuration tab and look for the "Hotkey Mode" option Toggle that to Disable the hit F10 or Fn+F10 to save and Exit
 
It should switch the use of F keys to legacy
 
Hope this helps

I've seen a few times where I have not used my Lenovo for a several minutes it will go into "sleep mode" and I have to hit the power button to open it again. But it is asking me to sign in. I have to turn it off by holding the power button and then turn it back on. And then it will start showing my normal desktop. How can I stop that "sign in" from showing? I never created a password and didn't think I need to do that.
Can anyone help?

In Sign In Options it has "Password.... Your account doesn't have a password. You must add a password before you can use the other sign-in options."
Whatever that means???? I never created a password and don't understand why it is asking me to "Sign In" when I turn in on from the Sleep mode.

Not sure whats going on with the website, I entered in my serial number to make sure I was getting the specific drivers.  But nearly all the pieces of hardware have two different drivers. I havent had to download any yet so far since I havent done too much.  But, when it came down to video card drivers it listed Nvidia drivers and when I tried to install it it said that the compatible hardware was not found. Shouldnt there be only one driver? I mean.. maybe multiple versions, but they are listed completely different so I would believe they are different drivers completely.

I am looking at buying a Lenovo Flex 14 at a reasonable price but Im struggling to find if I have options that I want for HD.
I was going to go with a 1TB Hybrid drive but Im hearing bad reviews on them. The SSD that comes with it isnt near enough storage for me.
Then I thought, I could keep the SSD for the OS if I could install and additional HD for storage.
Can anyone tel me if there is a slot for an additional drive either as M.2, NGFF, mSATA or with an expansion using the optical drive slot?
Lenovo isnt very forthcoming with information on this that I can find.
 

A:Lenovo Flex 14 additional HD

According to the reviews I have read there are different versions of the flex 14. Some come with a 128Gb SSD, others come with a 500gb HDD. Also in the different version there are different CPUs. None of the reviews mention an optical drive and from the appearance of the case I see no ports that you could install one. Judging by the size of the case it doesn't appear to have a slot for a second hard drive.
