Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 i7 Lenovo don't have part and it's been almost a year

Q: Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 i7 Lenovo don't have part and it's been almost a year

Initial problem:On the 29th June 2016 my laptop suddenly turned off and now only the backlit keyboard lights up and goes off again and the power button just goes on and off.After about 5 minutes of use before the error the screen went blue and shut down. After restarting, as it went onto the desktop the screen flickered constantly and was unusable. I then turned it off again and it wont turn on since. My issue now:Anyway after emailing lenovo, and sending it off they said it was the RAM. However after enquiring over a month after sending it off and paying for the repair they replied with:'We have received feedback from our repair provider in relation to your device in repair. Unfortunately due to non-availability of parts we are unable to complete this repair. We will send your faulty device back to you free of charge. Once we have the part in stock you can re-book the repair again free of charge.' Since last summer, I have emailed multiple times and they have replied saying it still isn't in stock. I just feel like I am being treated unfairly as the laptop wasn't even 2 years old and it's broke and they will not fix it. I don't want to have to do it myself as that will probably cause its own problem, but its the principal that they should fix their mistake! I have seen a youtube video of the same problem on the same laptop so it is obviously an issue. Any ideas on what I can do to get this issue solved would be great, even if its the email to the complains departmentRuth Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 i7 Serial number YB01410276

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.)

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.

Hi everyone. I can see that people with other similar style Lenovo laptops (Yoga 900) complain about the same issue so was wondering if there is a solution or an optimized version of this software. I did an update of the BIOS and the Power Management driver and still a constant power usage.  Once the laptop is flipped the YMC detects it and turns off the keyboard functionality to prevent accidental presses and that is pretty much all until it flipped back and enabled. And all of this requires a constant high CPU usage? Any help would be highly appreciated. I also tried rolling back to older drivers without luck in decreasing this CPU hog usage. To put such load on a i5 6th gen CPU really implies an inferior service integration....

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu. The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate.

New Yoga 700-141SK: Ran the Lenovo Support Center Hardware Scan and the Video Card Mathematical Operations Test has failed rendering the Report: WVC007002-UL7BPL. Is there a tried and proven solution out there? I have had a look at the solutions on the forum and am not satisfied that the solutions offered prove that the problem has been resolved. It is reasonable to expect Lenovo to make available a solution as a matter of course instead of end-users of "afflicted" Lenovo devices having to request/search for a solution(s).

I read other posts and none specifically addressed this for the 920 and the use of what is actually a good Lenovo config tool seems to be poorly documented.   I would think it would be the same for any Yoga model with Windows 10 and Lenovo Vantage installed.   I can't seem to find a version for Vantage, so hopefully this works on all versions.    1) Find and open Lenovo Vantage on your machine (use Cortana if needed).   This is the Responsive view and yours may look different...don't worry, options are the same.  Click on Hardware settings  2)  Click on Input (again, responsive view...whatever view you have should have this button labeled the same)  3)  This will open the Hardware Setting - Input UI.   Under 'Function Keys' click on the one that is labeled 'F1-F12' (should look like below, highlighted in blue) to make that the the Function the default setting for those keys...to further clarify: it will now be a Function Key (F1-F12) by default.    With this change, you will press the FN+ one of the function key for the Hot Key option (e.g. FN+F1=mute/unmute, FN+F2=volume down, etc.)     4)  Your change is already saved, so you can now X-out (click X in the upper right) of the pop-up windows created by that were created

Hi! I own a Lenovo Yoga 14-ARR (Ryzen 2500U), and there are tons of bugs in need of fixing, but how do we reach Lenovo and the development teams so they can actually be aware of the faults? BIOS- After latest BIOS/UEFI update the CPU clocks is downclocked to 400MHz when battery drops below 20%, after that the unit runs at 400MHz until hard shutdown (holding down the power button), charging doesn't help. one time it did get back again to normal speeds when plugging and unplugging the cable several times. This is NOT a windows power setting. (because it doesn't do anything the CPU clocks when battery level has hit 20% one time)- Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and Da Vinci resolve hangs due to insufficient dedicated VRAM. Please let us choose the amount ourselves in the UEFI! 240MB is abysmall in 2019. 0.5MB or even 1GB is bare minimum for creative work today.- Freesync doesn't work properly on external monitors although it is advertised by AMD. The hardware doesn't recognize the monitors supported resolutions and refresh rates either. although they are fully working on other AMD GPUs with the same generation drivers.- External monitor issues - some resolutions results in flickering, not displaying correctly (even when using "GPU scaling"). and no it's not the cable. I have certified HDMI cables that can run [email protected] just fine on my other computer.- HDMI doesn't support 2560x1440 @ 120Hz, although the Ryzen 2500U should support it technically.

Checking with the hardware manual (page26) and specs sheet shows that there is no extra slot for another mSATA on the model.
 
An option for replacing the storage with a larger (up to 1TB PCIe 3.0 x 4 NVMe m.2 2280) capacity can be a solution for needed storage space.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.

A:Lenovo Yoga 910 wont load pass the Lenovo screen.

Try getting into BIOS first and loading default settings. To do this, press the small "Novo" button (you'll need a paperclip for this), and select "BIOS setup". From there, use the arrow keys to get to the "exit" tab and select load default settings.

Hello, guys.  This is my first post.  Please be kind. Been an Apple user ever since (Mac, iPhone, iPad, etc.).  But lately have been excited with the hardware from "the dark side", especially that of Microsoft (Surface Pro 6 and Surface Go) and Lenovo (Yoga 530). I've also been window shopping for a secondary device which can be used for most basic tasks like surfing the web, checking e-mails, social media, chat, YouTube and Netflix, and maybe working on some office documents like Word, Excel, PPT and Outlook.  Need something small and lightweight.  Seeing both the Yoga 330 and Miix 320 in the market, seems like their specs are exactly or very much the same, even the price.  Apart from their sexy form factors (360 convertible vs detachable), what other differences do they have?  I've seen the 4GB/64GB models of both of them. TIA. Additional: If you were to choose one, which would it be and why?

Hi huQbbTCi,
 
Greetings.
 
Lenovo active pen 1 is also compatible with Yoga 920 as shown in the accessories search tool here PART # GX80K32884. It would be less sensitive to depth perception but with palm rejection enabled then you may not have the same issue on losing contact with it. 
 
It would also be favorable to have it tried first before any purchase specially if you have someone that have it and compare it with other active pens whichever would be comfortable and efficient to your writing style.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hello,    I am looking to replace my aging Lenovo T420S and Lenovo x1 Carbon 1st generation. They have both served me well and I am happy with both.  I like the touch of Carbon but don?t use it that often. The machine will be perosnla machine but will be used for personal and business/work use. I saw the T460S and x1 Yoga yesterday at our IT department. I like the built quality of Lenovo T460S including keyboard but found X1 Yoga to be fragile. I couldn?t get my hands on X1 Carbon 4th generation and found out that it doesn?t have touch anymore. The weight difference is minimal between the three machines and I personally like the weight, feel and ruggedness of Lenovo T460S. Bottom line is does anyone have experience with these three machines? I can afford to replace only one machine now and it will be fully loaded (i7, 16GB and 1Tb PCIe-NVME drive). Is x1 Yoga rugged and reliable? The difference between X1 Carbon 4th Gen and T460S seems minimal. Thank You!Subhash

So i bought Lenovo y 70 70T  1 almost a year ago. Since that time I have had this stupid bug - buzzing audio and video crashes while watching videos  or playing games. I have contacted windows and lenovo support 20 thousand times -all they told me to do was to reinstall drivers and reinstall Windows. I have done it a lot of times, trying all possible drivers - nothing helped. I have created topics everywhere - and guess what, people have it. It it somehow related to network card driver - but that's all we have figured out. Lenovo support have been uncompetent and never willing to help. Now my warranty is reaching expiraiton in a month and I would never buy another lenovo product or prolong it. This has been the most disgusting experience in my life connected to devices.P.S. Now lenovo support does not even except my serial number - i just enter it and it keeps loading.well done lenovo - i have spent my 6 years saving on this machine to provide myself with continous suffering and ignorance from the manufacturer.

I don't post here often. I hope it's the right place for this kind of comments. I have been a loyal Lenovo customer for eight years, during which I bought two workstations and spent more than $6,000 each time. I also spent VERY good money to make sure I would get extended warranty and on-site repairs if needed. I have never needed assistance in all these years, but now that I do, Lenovo is not there for me. The screen of my Lenovo W541 has a minor crack, which might get worse over time. My workstation is still under warranty, for about another month. I would have liked to have the screen repaired or replaced, but Lenovo claims I should send in the workstation to a depot. I must mention that, for work-related reasons, I cannot go without my workstation not even for one day. I guess it is easy to understand, if one, like me, is willing to spend more than $6,000 on a laptop. I asked a Lenovo authorized business partner to help me. So, after a long back and forth, Lenovo has presented me with these two options: a) send in the workstation to a depot (part would be free, I would have to pay for labor); b) use the service of a business partner, who would replace the screen in minutes, but in this case I would have to pay for part and labor.  I asked to have the part sent to my home or office, and I would perform the replacement myself, but Lenovo are not willing to do that. I am very disappointed.

Hi to all.I want to buy another 8gb RAM module for my already shipped buy not here yet laptop.With my serial number got in Lenovo Part lookup and found I have two options there: "As built" and "model".My problem is that "As built" has double the results for the whole machine than "model" (35 vs 75) which I find counter intuitive.In particlar, for RAM in "As built" it shows a Hynix and a Samsung (picture below) module.But if I press on "model" only the Samsung one will appear.My question is which exact module (brand / part) is installed in my specific laptop?Thanks in advance!

This was the first time I noticed a problem:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-sleeping-ruined-after-latest-update/m-p/41... And it hasn't been fixed since, even after the latest BIOS update which I installed today.Lenovo just never acknowledged this issue. My computer is still ruined by this I see otehr people with the exact same problem.I tis most likely Intel AMT BIOS corruption. HOW to fix this? It's **bleep** anoying.

I need to get a new wireless card for my wife's Z410. I found the list of replacement parts on Lenovo's site and there's an add to cart option for 1 of the 9 options. The price is fine, so I click it, but it keeps saying that it fails. Do I just have to go elsewhere for the part?

i had dropped my computer a couple days ago and the screen was slightly darker. i figured it was either the inverter or the bulb. so i disassembled the screen, checked the bulb and it didnt seem bad, and put it back together to test it .now only a small strip at the bottom of the screen has normal lighting. could it be those little pieces of plastic at the back of the LCD? possibly something was knocked loose originally and since i tried to put it back together, i might have partially fixed the problem?
 

A:Part of the screen is dark. Lenovo R61i

scratch that part about the light part. i found two screws that i forgot to put in. but still. it seemed like that brighter part was just right for, i.e. , like is was when it was working better. though, the screen is still very dark. would that be the inverter? i mean ive had a monitor with a bad inverter, but it was completely black. maybe thats just the worse case
