Q: Lenovo Yoga 720 15 inch (Model: 80X700A3PB ) + Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 40AC - my short experience

Sorry for language mistakes. I have Lenovo Yoga 720 15 inch + gtx 1050 (Model: 80X700A3PB ) windows 10 Home (newest bios, drivers, windows update).Two weeks ago i bought Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 40AC (price 100 $ with power supply and usb-c cable - second hand, image in attachement). This is my short two weeks experience with this docking station. Pros:- works well with two monitors 1920x1080 (one connected to display port, one to hdmi on docking station), no lags, problems ect- all usb sockets in dock work correctly with pendrive- i connect mouse receiver to docking station (plus two monitors) - no mouse lags ect - mouse work correctly Cons:- dock does not power up laptop (you need to connect the power supply to laptop)- power button on dock does nothing Pros/Cons ????:- i noticed youtube movie acceleration on chrome (every second movie accelerate on left monitor, barely noticed). This is probably not dock station problem becouse on Firefox this problem does not appear.- it happened to me (one or two times out of many times) when i disconnect and connect usb-c cable from dock , dock was not recognized. Switch off/on dock station helps.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Good morning, Got my brand new Yoga X1 2nd gen notebook together with the Thunderbolt 3 dock. I've a problem with the dock. When I connect it, it is recognized but I get a warning that the notebook is not charged and that I should connect the correct charger to the docking station. Moreover, when I connect an external display to the dock (via DP), the external display is not recognized, nor in the display settings nor can I manage to get a singal to the external monitor. I have installed the latest BIOS for the notebook (v. 1.10), latest Thunderbolt firmware and Thunderbolt drivers. I have rebooted serveral times, uninstalled, re-installed, disconnected etc.... to no avail. Anyone experiencing the same? Any solutions? Regards George

I've got a Yoga 700 11.6 inch, windows 10, 128 gb HDD and 8gb memory. Testing it and playing games I can see the computer is not performing to specs. I did a fresh re-install of Windows because I hated all the Lenovo apps added to it. Sadly I was still unable to install the Intel version of the graphics driver. but whatever, I have the Lenovo version. Still, benchmarks tell me this is performing well below the specs even for the Intel HD 515. I have everything set to 'high performance'. I've been told there's some BIOS settings I could change but frankly I haven't seen them. Is my computer being throttled, and if so how can I fix it?

The body of my Lenovo 720 15 inch squeaks when i lift it from the side and also when i swivel the display. Also there are a lot of parts on the computer that seem to be coming off... especially the glass for the display. The glue for the display seems to be coming off. Im not satisfied with the quality of this computer. My previous laptop, xps 15 has a better build quality and sturdier feel for around the same price. Do you guys have any of these problems?

Hey all,  I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 15-inch 4k and love it! Unfortunately, it was stolen in Mexico and I had to buy a new one upon returning to the States.  One of the first things I changed when I got my first 720 was the screen brightness. I switched off the "Adaptive Brightness" setting in System > Display settings and that seemed to make my screen nice and bright white.  Now, on my second computer, even at 100% brightness and with the Adaptive Brightness switched off, the screen looks much dimmer and not as crisp white.  Any thoughts on what might be going on? Thanks! Dave

hello there fellow Yoga 710 users,  one of the reasons why i picked up this Yoga 710 is because of its 'above average' battery life to compare with its competitor. this is based on reviews that i read and watch on youtube.  however, after using it for a few days, i dont think i was able to hit 7 hours or more on this machine. i did not put it under extreme load as i was using it only for word processing etc.  from the battery notification, it says around 4 hours and 40 minutes at 100 percent.  any of you guys encounter the same problem? or you guys were able to hit 7 hours or more for the battery life? just want to make sure that my battery is not draining for no reason appreciate your input guys  thanks

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hello folks, so far I really like the Yoga 720 but I have this really strange problem when I'm drawing on the screen.

I bought my wife a brand new Yoga 920 for Christmas in December 2017 for 1,299 dollars plus tax.  It was blazing fast. Set up was so smooth. The computer operated flawlessly. Best computer we have purchased in years. Only 4 months later, April 19th, when we tried to wake the computer up, it would not start. They keyboard backlights and power button would just flash. That was it. The screen stayed dark and nothing would happen. I called Lenovo support and they had me run through some basic troubleshooting and eventually told me the laptop had a hardware failure and I would have to send it back to them OR I could just bring it to a local Best Buy for repair. Since Best Buy was only 5 miles from my house, I brought it there. Only to be told by Best Buy that they don't repair them and they had to ship it to Lenovo anyway.  It took a month to get it back. So for a month we were without the computer. Then when we got it back, it was filthy. Scratched up, covered in greese and dirt. When I opened it up, there were hairs and food crumbs on the keyboard. The touch screen was covered in greesey finger prints that looked like they were just rubbed across the whole screen. It was disgusting. See pictures of the laptop below.  Furthermore, when we booted it up, it was slow. I mean SLOW. All our of documents were gone and the drive was wiped. We lost everything that was not backed up yet - including my 2017 taxes. We fol... Read more

Hello, I have owned my Yoga 730 13IKB for a little over a year and recently I have been running out of storage on its 256 GB SSD. I have been looking around online for suitable upgrades and just wanted to know what specific SSDs would be compatible with the laptop; I have viewed the Yoga's hardware manual and it shows that the laptop needs an M.2 NVMe PCIe-type SSD, and it also appears to list the max SSD storage capacity as 512GB, not 1TB like I have seen for other Yoga models (is it accurate that the 13-inch model of the Yoga 730 can only support up to a 512 GB SSD?), so thats the extent of what I know about any possible upgrades.

Greetings, I just bought Lenovo Yoga 330. It's been great, but i have one strange problem. When I wake the laptop from sleep, the CPU clock is stuck on 1.1 GHz (Which is its base clock). It won't go to turbo clock which is supposedly 2.6 GHz. The only solution i know is to reboot the windows, and the cpu clock is normal again.I know with ssd rebooting is fast, but still you need to wait some programs to start up. I'm a teacher, there are no breaks between my classes, i really need sleep mode to quickly use my laptop between classes.I know programs such Throttlestop from techpowerup can set the CPU to static 2.6 GHz, but it's not good for battery life. I need the dynamic clock, so the clock will low if the usage is low, and the clock will throttle up if the usage is higher.I am using windows 10 64 bit which was preinstalled during purchase. All the drivers are up to date, the BIOS also is the latest. I am wondering if lenovo team is already address this problem, i really hope they will release new BIOS soon. Sorry for my english, it's not my primary language.

This laptop has the I7 processor, 256gb SSD, 16gb ram, HD 520 and GeForce 940mx. Outside of the constant hum from the fan, my laptop makes a sporadic and intermittent electrical scratching noise or whining sound every time i scroll (screen redraws) or if I load a program like chrome or word. I've heard terms such as coil whine or piezoelectric effect? I am not sure, but it is quite noticeable and quite annoying! It sounds like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOgFPlS_b1s the sound is loudest right in the center of the keyboard, at least for me; the buzz in the video was provoked by loading software and or scrolling up and down on a page or document From what i was reading, it sounds like it has to do with the CPU and the ACPI driver; another possibility is the Intel HD 520 graphics.  Anyone know what is going on, or how to fix it? Thank you in advanced!

My laptop won't power on, and I've tried using both of my 2 OEM power adapters and multiple electrical outlets.  Could this be something simple I could fix on my end?   I purchased my laptop at Best Buy in December 2017,  so I'm now about 6 months out of warranty.
