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 Hello Just got my new X1 yoga, but even after reading the manual, couldn't figure out how to resume it from sleep? Getting it to sleep easy, lid down, windows menu or F4. When I came back to it, the screen is off, the fingerprit scanner has a light, but I cannot manage to get it back on unless i press 1 or 2 times on the power button, and then it resumes. Any other ways to do it?? I'm used just to press any key/mouse, to get it to resume, my old surface was like that. Sorry for the basic question, but the power button sometime takes as long time, as I think it's restarting the computer. Thank you

A:ThinkPad X1 Yoga how to resume from sleep mode??

Pressing the Fn key might do it if it has only been in sleep mode for a while, but after a period of time set under the power plan setting, it will go into hibernation mode  to save the battery power (it basically writes the system state to a file called hiberfil.sys, and powers off), and in that case you have to press the power button to resume. This might help too even though it does not explicitly mention your model.https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht075624 Take Care,

Hi Issue: Thinkpad X1 Carbon 5th Gen black screen / 'screen off' on resume from sleep I know this issue has been posted about several times regarding the X1 series but .... none of those threads seem to have any kind of answer to this problem. This seems like quite a horrendous issue for a +1500 to have !! Constantly 'hard rebooting' and losing all my open work is seriously seriously annoying. Please note: My drivers are 100% up to date based on Lenovo's own update software. I have all official Windows 10 updates issued to date (21 aug 17). These are the patterns I've noticed: - It doesn't always replicate the same behaviour: after resume from sleep sometimes it's 'black' and other times it's fine. I'd say 66% of the 'lid openings' it's OK but 33% of cases it's not.- I've found that if I shut the lid again and reopen (often 3 or more times and waiting 30+ seconds on each open then 30+ seconds on each close) then I can eventually 'force' it to turn the screen on.- If I 'manually' set the unit to sleep from the start menu rather than just closing the lid, I'm pretty certain that it *does not* exhibit this problem. I'll be 100% certain once I've tried this a few more times.-  I've removed all USB devices from the laptop one-by-one and waited for the problem to reoccur thus ruling out any single or combination of USB devices.- I have the 'lock screen' shown when it does successfully resume from sleep. - The screen 'blackness' looks t...

I bought a top of the line XPS 15 9550, with 1TB M.2 SSD, 4k touchscreen and 16GB of RAM. Had frequent blue screens of death that I fixed by replacing the SSD drivers with the Samsung ones.
Now my biggest woes are that quite often the speakers crack and that I cannot put the laptop in standby/sleep.
If I have the power supply plugged in and I put the laptop to sleep, when I wake it up from sleep the internal keyboard no longer works. The keyboard backlights react to my typing but windows doesn't see me typing anything. Even the CAPS LOCK led doesn't light up if I try to toggle that key. Luckily if I connect an external keyboard, that one works.
If I don't have the power supply plugged in and I put the laptop to sleep, when I try to wake it up from sleep, it instead tries to boot and complains about a missing loader file. At that point if I plug it in and I hit retry it proceeds with the rest of the boot but of course since this is a fresh boot all of my work prior to attempting to go into standby is lost.
Please advise.
thank you!

I currently run win7 ultimate 64bit, 8gig ram, intel i7-2600k cpu, and my OS runs on an OCZ SSD (all specs are in my profile)

Sleep mode is set to S3 in BIOS, I have hibernation disabled (so no hibernation.sys file on my c drive)

When I put my computer to sleep then immediately wake it up, the login screen shows instantly, I type in my pass and it loads in like 0.5 seconds.

When I put my computer to sleep but wait for around 1-2 hrs before waking it, it shows the login screen instantly but after i hit login, it gives me the Welcome spinning circle thingy for like 20 seconds before I can see my desktop. That's like longer than my entire boot-up time excluding POST.

Event viewer doesnt show any performance delay, and I dont think my OS drive (OCZ vertex 2) has a cache so I have it disabled. I'm sure all my mobo drivers and graphic drivers are up to date.

Suggestions on why this might be so? Any idea would be much appreciated!

I have a Thinkpad T460s since a couple of months. It's the i7 edition with 20GB/1TB edition. The device has been working fine so far, although the CPU fan had to be replaced shortly after I got it (rattling noise). Since a couple of days, the Thinkpad is spinning up the fan very often. Just a simple interaction such as opening Chrome triggers the fan to blow quite loud for some time (20-30s at least). When compiling using Visual Studio, the fan almost spins to the loudest it possibly can. The thing is: it didn't do that all of the time I've had it.  Even when it's completely idle (say 0-2%), the fan still humms a little bit (it didn't do that before either). Could this indicate a hardware issue? I have NBD support but should know whether this could indicate some failure.Thanks for any advice.

Hiseems T460s (20F9) is wors than my previous laptop T420s, I can't move it so freely as before. At certain point the mouse cursor just stops moving and have to use force with a finger to make it move anywhere. I noticed the cap hole is now much smaller than f.ex. T420s, perhaps this is the reason for it. I found a link on the net to make the movement possible better;http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/thinkpad-t460s-trackpoint-mod.790347/In addition, previously there came several Caps with the laptop, now there is not a single extra one. So I don't dare to try the fix above link before I have at least one extra cap in case something goes wrong.So the question is what is the product code for the Thinkpad T460s Trackpoint Cap collection? I tried to look in the net, hard to find.  I used Lenovoguickpick and the possible code might be this;ThinkPad Super Low Profile TrackPoint Cap Set (Part # 4XH0L55146)Then again googling that with amazon produces no results so can't get those anywhere. Any help appreciated, Thank You.

Has Lenovo patched it? Windows havent, as far as I can see. I have everything updated via the lenovo website and the windows update, the BIOS is at 1.22 (latest) and I still get the BSOD if I try to wake my laptop from sleeping. This is really frustrating and I would like a guide, some instructions, or at least an answer like "This will be forever broken, go to UNIX". It's been like 8 months since this occured and if there is no solution from either side, then this is pretty unprofessional.

Hi, Since this morning, my 3 week old ThinkPad T460s started making some weird fan noise. When spinning up and also while slowing down (so not on higher speeds), there's a rattling noise coming from the laptop. Sounds a bit as if the fan is brushing against something or perhaps some trembling/interference?Also at really slow fan activity, this is audible quite heavily. Up until now, that noise wasn't audible at all. Should I be calling in support (I have on-site support for this machine)? I don't assume this is normal for a new machine to happen? Thanks!

Hello,I have a user here who has a T460s laptop who's batteries are no longer holding a sufficient charge. Pretty sure the laptop has 2 (internal) batteries. When the use takes the laptop out of the office, it's losing power afterabout an hour, maybe an hour and a half. After an hour, I was able to open a chat session with a tech, who said if we clicked on the battery icon down in the sys.tray, there'd be an indicator if the battery/batteries were bad. However, we did that and there is no such indicator oralert. Clicking on the same batttery icon and then clicking on Battery Settings, there are no notifications posted in the windowthat opens giving any indication of any issues with the batteries. Despite that, the batteries no longer retain the charge they once did. Is there any onboard diagnostic that can be run to determine which, or both batteries are bad?  Or any other locationwhere there might be helpI need to weigh the cost of replacing the batteries vs. having the user get a new laptop. Thanks very much! Jim

I have searched all forums including this one and have been unable to find a resolution to my issue.I have had my laptop (Thinkpad T460s) for just over a year now and use it for work daily. I was using it with no issue at lunch, but when I opened the lid around 3 hours later - the screen was black and the laptop seemed to be stuck in sleep mode. I tried a hard reset and now I can not even get the Lenovo post menu to show.If I press the power button, the keyboard momentarily turns on the backlighting and the power button stays illuminated, after about a minute the power button turns off. This entire time the laptop screen is completely black, I don't see the Lenovo post menu and therefore have no acces to the BIOS or OS.I have tried using the hardware reset button on the bottom of the laptop, removing the 2 discreet batteries, removing the CMOS battery, removing all batteries and resetting the RAM. None of this has gotten me any headway on resolving this issue. I am going to try contacting technical support but am hoping someone may help me find a quick and simple resolution to this issue.

Hello all,

I'm dumbfounded on this one. Here's what I know...

I have Win7 Home Premium, and am using it on a Media Center PC. When I put the PC to sleep, sometimes it will wake up properly, sometimes it won't. When it does not wake up from sleep...I have to manually press the power button on the computer for it to turn on (as if the computer "shut down" rather then sleep), and during boot I receive the "windows did not shut down properly" screen with the 30 second count down to select if I want to start up normally, or try safe modes. This is KILLING my recordings and driving me insane.

It seems to be that it happens mostly when I leave the PC sit overnight and I do NOT try to check on it in the morning. In other words, use the PC at night, put it into sleep mode before I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm central, and leave it alone until it is supposed to wake up on it's own to record usually around 7pm or 8pm central. So it's in sleep for around 20-22 hours.

If I put it to sleep at night around 11pm central, and in the morning before I go to work I wake it up myself around 8am central, it wakes up. I then put it to sleep & go to work around 9am central, and come home and it's recording what it should between 7pm or 8pm central.

So there definitely seems to be a timing issue, but what? It sits too long and crashes while in sleep mode??? Why? If I leave the computer running all day, it works fine, and does not crash.

I received my brand new T460s on 6/1/2016. Unfortunately, an issue that has been happening more and more frequently is that my display will not wake up from sleep. Sometimes when I open the laptop lid, the screen will remain black, even though everything else seems functional (the fingerprint reader light will light up green, I can hear the USB sound effects when I remove and re-insert my smart card, I can adjust my keyboard backlight, etc). I already have all the most recent drivers available from Lenovo System Update installed. The only thing I can do when the display does not wake up is to force a shutdown by holding the power button for >5 seconds.  Even adjusting my laptop to Hibernate instead of Sleep will still sometimes result in my display not waking up. Any idea how to fix this?

Hi all,  I recently purchased a T460s with some upgrades on the specifications (RAM 16 GB, GPU GeForce 930M and etc.). The initial operating system was set to Windows 7, so I upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit. I manually downloaded all the drivers required for this laptop and windows 10. While everything else runs pretty well, the keyboard backlight does not seem to work. I haven't checked if the backlight works on the previous operating system, so I am unsure if the problem is actually from the hardwares or if the OS was updated wrong. I am pretty sure that this model supports the keyboard backlit function since the space bar has that little image on the left side that (I'm guessing) indicates the function of backlit keyboards.  I'm wondering if there are actual drivers that I must intall prior to pressing the (Fn+Spacebar) keys to turn on the backlight, or if there is a problem with my computer. If it's the case of the latter, I am thinking about resetting my laptop (reinstalling windows 10). Being aware of how long it takes to download and install all the necessary components, once I do, is there any method of backing up the computer and after the reset just using that backup to go back to the original state where I have all my programs and data?  Thanks.

Hello, community My name is Taveres Harris and I am new to the Lenovo support community.

Good day Everyone, I was just provided with a 'new' laptop at work to replace my old one and when wanted to check the specs on the Lenovo webiste, I noticed that the following message popped up:Sorry, this product is no longer available This pop-up message really called my attention because even if I know that certain products may have shorter support or sale life span, I think this one is not too old not to be available anymore.I am now a little concerned that this machine may not be that good a product and will be able to perform as expected in the years to come. I don't have the luxury to exchange my designated system too often so I just want to make sure I am doing the right thing. The upgrade is made now because I am having problems with my current T430s, but those are mainly software issues, I just want to kill two birds with one stone by getting a new image with an upgraded machine.I read some of the comments written and most of them are good.So, even though I am the one who would decide whether to upgrade or keep working with the current machine, I am still puzzled by the fact that the new one is no longer available for purchase. So, does any one know why this model is now discontinued?Thank you!Moris

However, sometimes when I open the lid to my laptop, it is temporarily unresponsive for a minute or so when resuming from sleep mode. It's pretty annoying. I think it has something to do with my USB settings because it only seems to do it when something is plugged in there. For example, thumb drive, external hard drive.

I tried playing with the settings in power settings. I have turn off hard disk set to never. USB selective suspend set to disabled.

Anyone know what the issue could be? Thanks for your help.

Specs

New install of windows 7 ultimate x64, reformat, old os was a linux variant
older hardware, dual core amd 4200, nvidia gt2 250, 2 gig ram
Besides the windows 7 drivers, I had to install a realtek ac 97 audio driver, which works.
I installed nvidia's latest drivers.

Computer seems to work when waking up, but it seems to me that the network is trying to reconnect over the LAN and when this doesn't happen the computer will prevent me from opening any other apps or click on anything. Then if I wait long enough, I will get the BSOD and the computer will reboot to a working environment. Very weird!!

A:BSOD on resume from sleep

I fixed this issue. here it is!

The MB I use is an old Abit ultra with the nforce 4 chipset. You guessed it, windows 7 drivers are the culprit. As soon I installed the legacy drivers from nvidia 15.23 the computer not only boots up faster but it goes to sleep and wakes up on command.

This should probably be sent to microsoft seeing as how it is their drivers that are at fault, but I assume they will do nothing about it since nvidia has even decided to depreciate nfroce 4 chipset. It is how they force you to upgrade your hardware to keep other companies in business.

Problems,when my computer goes to sleep it will often not resume and the only
way I can get back in is to switch off power.When it resumes I get "start up repair" which will only repair if I go into safe mode switch off and the switch on manually also it has lines on the screen : see screen shot

A:Coputer will not resume from sleep

Seems like you're having numerous issues now, and those lines highlight a bigger issue imo. But I would try a reinstall, and use these guides to do it...

Over the last week or so my system does not find the 3 spinner HDDs on resuming from sleep. My searching has not found a description of a similar issue. My system has 2 SSDs, (both single partition, the Intel 520 has w8.1 and all apps, the other SSD has W10TP) 3 HDDs, and 2 optical drives. On resume from sleep the 3 HDDs are missing, a reboot finds them again, and all is well till I put the system in sleep mode.
I am now not certain just when this issue began, I installed all the applicable November patch Tuesday updates, and the 2 out-of-band updates issued a week later. I also updated the Windows 10 Technical Preview when that was issued. The Windows 10 install is on a (single partition) separate SSD.
This issue also is present on resuming after sleep when running the Windows 10 TP.
I did not disconnect the other drives when updating W10. Could that be the culprit?
Motherboard is an ASUS P8Z77-V. I have reset the BIOS to "Optimized Defaults" - no change to this issue. All drives are visible in the BIOS screens, and on the Post screen.
My most recent image is nearly 2 months old (yes, I know I should image more frequently, but have been away.) So I'd like to find a fix to this issue without reverting that far back, if possible.
All suggestions appreciated. TIA

A:HDDs not seen after resume from sleep - W8.1

Have you tried disabling both Hibernation and Sleep in Power Options to see if that's where the problem lies? I find both features to be more problematic than they are worth, prefer the screen saver setting to blank the screen and the Windows key plus L to lock the screen.

hi,
I have a lenovo T500.
I have my setting as:
turn off monitor after 15 min
turn off hard disk at 15 min
standby by 20 min

so, when i left the computer untouch for like 1/2 and hour, it failed to resume properly.

I was able to use the mose to make it awake, but that seem to be it. on the screen, i can only see the wall paper as my background. Other than that, i don't see any icon appear on my desktop. I have try to to bunch Alt + Ctrl + Delete, but it wasn't working. But i can move the mose tho.
anyway, the only way to get my system running again is that i have to use the use the power button, shut it off and restart it.
can someone tell me why is it like this?
Thanks

Hi, I have a HP dv6500 series with Vista SP2. When the computer goes to sleep, it's unable to resume, it will just stay in sleep mode, blinking nonstop. Using the power button, keyboard, touchpad, doesn't work, I have to unplug it and remove the battery and start the computer again. I updated the bios to the latest version as well as the video card drivers, same thing. Any ideas?

A:Can't resume from sleep (hardware?)

What graphics does the laptop use? Intel,Nvidia,etc

Look on the sticker on the bottom (Service Tag) and post the exact model number of the laptop.

Normally this issue can be narrowed down to the graphics driver.

Did you install the driver from the HP site or Nvidia or ATI/AMD site?

I am having a few different issues resuming from sleep. With (powercfg -h on), putting the computer to sleep and resuming from sleep takes 20 second to sleep, and 45 seconds to resume from sleep. This is extremely slow because with an SSD in my system, I can cold boot in less time than it takes to resume from sleep. With (powercfg -h off), putting the computer to sleep takes only about 2-5 seconds, but resuming from sleep will display a black screen with my mouse cursor, nothing else. I would prefer having hibernation disabled as the hyberfil.sys file on my system is 8gb, and with only a 60gb SSD, I need to conserve space. I have installed the most recent drivers for motherboard, sound card, video card, BIOS, etc. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Sleep resume problem

I would just leave it running as SSD take very little power. Thats just what i do with mine.

A:won't resume from sleep mode

For anything that "just started" happening -- try a "System Restore" >Start > run: msconfig > Launch System Restore and choose a date prior to the problem

They can be undone if you like.

Most problems that SR does not fix are hardware related.

You should also have a look through these to see if any apply >>

Hi,

I'm hoping to get some help. About a month ago my pc started going to BSOD while trying to resume after being put to sleep. PC is 16 months old. I read the forums, etc and updated the ATI radeon display driver and the Realtek network driver but the problem persisted.

I also rolled back the system using restore to before the problem began but no change. I then reinstalled windows 7 64bit using the OEM CD rom and installed all the MS updates - no change. Last week, it occurred to me that it might be a monitor hw issue so I swapped out the monitor with another I had. That seemed to solve it - for 4 days - now it's doing the same thing with the second monitor.

I've attached the zipfile with the minidmp and perfmon.

Appreciate any insight - Bob

Since replacing my old HDD with a SSD, Windows will no longer resume from sleep (it hibernates just fine). It goes to sleep seemingly fine, but when it's time to wake up, the system appears to resume as expected, but the screen remains black. The system must then be shut down by holding the power button for 6 seconds and then restarted.

Sleep had worked fine with the HDD.

General specs:
Dell XPSM1330
2.2GHz Core2Duo T7500
4GB RAM (Corsair upgrade from original 2GB)
Kingston SNV425S264GB SSD (discontinued drive, attempted to find new drivers for it but was unable to)
Dell Bios A15 (latest BIOS I can find for it)
W7Ux64

I recall reading something about this previously, but could not recall where, nor if it had been resolved.

I suppose I'm not expecting miracles, but I do miss sleeping. Hibernating takes as long as rebooting anyway. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks

Every time I put my computer to sleep or hibernate and wake it up, the computer resumes to a screen stating "Windows failed to shut down correctly" A recent hardware or software change might be the cause and I'm asked to choose how to restart.Quite similar to the screen I would get after a crash.
Any insight on this issue?

A:Win 7 does not resume correctly after sleep

Is this a clean install, factory install or in-place Upgrade?

Troubleshoot the issue by checking the logs for events at the time of suspend and resume.

Next try updating your display driver, or try another Win7 or Vista driver: Driver Install - Device Manager.

Here is the tool used by Pros to trace these issues: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/1402...resume-issues/

If this doesn't help, try running SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

As a last resort before clean reinstall, try a Repair Install

Tips for getting a purrfect clean reinstall - use the ones which apply: re-install windows 7
