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.)

Hi, I am opening this new thread to summarise some of the problems that a lot of us have in the hope that we might get an official response that solves the issue. I am facing 3 seperate issues and I am convinced based on what  read in the forum that they are directly linked. 1) Touchpad is laggy. While drawing a straight line on my touchpad the cursor will definitely jump a certain amount of space on the screen. In other words the movement is not continuous, but laggy. 2) While typing (happened 3 times in this text so far) the keyboard will miss keystrokes even though I absolutely pressed the key. I would say it happens in a frequency of 1 every 80-100 characters. 3) While working on battery, and it being charged >80%, a message will pop up saying I have 6% left and dissapear. Therehas been a report in the forum claiming that if you unplug the battery all the above issues will be fixed. Obviously all of us bought a laptop, not a desktop, and removing the battery is not a option. However, that report indicates-to me a least- that we are dealing with a power management issue. I would appreciate an official response from lenovo, or better yet a fix for our problem.

I've combined several discussions into one because there are multiple cross-overs of symptoms.
 
After reviewing all the posts, I see there are two types of problems discussed:

Battery charging but only to a certain percentage
Battery intermittently charging

Several people have reported success with their limited battery percentage problem by following the solutions suggested by MarinM and Vladtech.
 
For the intermittent charging, several people have reported that sometimes the battery charges, sometimes it doesn't. I'd like to dig into these reports. I have a few questions I'd like to ask.

When does it charge, when does it not?
Are there any patterns to this?
Does swapping electrical outlets make a difference?
Does the USB 2.0 charging port appear loose?
Does the cable show any signs of damage?
Does the AC adapter show any signs of damage?
When a second device is plugged into the extra USB port on the AC Adapter, does this impact Y3P charging?
Are there any battery error messages?

Thank you for your help,

The ProblemsWon't start without being plugged into charging cableIf charging cable is removed or power outlet is turned off, the computer shuts down immediatelyBattery level stuck on 38% and will not increase.Screen flickers constantly The StoryI have had my Lenovo Yoga 3 14' 940m for a long time now and was very satisfied with it, up until a few days ago. Suddenly the computer wouldn't start. I tried holding the power button for +10 seconds and nothing happened. Then I plugged the charger in and it started up. However when i got to the desktop the battery level was at 38%.

Have you tried resetting the battery? Power off the laptop. Underneath the laptop, located in the middle is a small pin hole. Using a straightened paper clip or sim card remover pin, press the pin hole. Power on the laptop and check again. As the battery is integrated, there is no physical way to take it out and put it back in. The pin hole (reset) mirrors this process.

Hi:I have an Ideapad 110-15ISK, and a few months ago I deleted Windows 10 to install another OS, but recently I went back to Windows and everything was fine. Once again I tried to install another OS, but this time without removing Windows, and as I try to do it throught dual boot I need to access the BIOS to change the boot order. I do not see the UEFI firmware configuration option to access the BIOS. Previously, before removing Windows, the option appeared. I consulted several forums and one said that it could be that the BIOS should be updated, so I installed an update: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/gr/es/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/100-SERIES/110-15ISK/downloads/DS11...I installed the correct one, since my laptop is the one that says the download page. When the download finished, I got an error: Checking media [Fail], and it restarted again and again and the same thing happened. I have tried a Windows Recovery Media, but no advanced options work for me, and the option the remove the OS  takes me to an HP management (I installed the recovery media in an HP laptop). I also installed a Windows ISO image on a USB to install it again, but it does not allow it. Is there any other solution?

For the past week or so, my laptop has been unexpectedly and without warning dying when getting down to approximately 35-40% battery. Obviously there are no low battery warnings since the battery still has plenty of charge left.  After this happens, the computer refuses to turn back on until the charging cable is plugged in. After the cable has been inserted and the computer restarted, the cable can be removed without issue. Sometimes this process will repeat 2 or 3 times before the system stays stable and continues to run down to normal low battery conditions. I have tried changing power settings in the control panel to alleviate this, but nothing seems to help. The computer is less than a year old. HWMONITOR says that there is a bit of battery degradation, but at 16% capacity loss I don't suspect my computer should be dying mysteriously at just under half power. Has anyone else had a similar issue, or any suggestions on what could be causing it? Is it merely a case of a defective battery? Thanks

Tonight I was attempting to reseat my laptop's hard drive and must have exerted too much force when attempting to close it back up because on the righthand side the hinge broke off of the roll cage. It looks like that not only am I going to have to replace the hard drive but now I'm going to have to figure out how to fix the hinge. Does anyone know how to fix this? It looks like I'm going to have to buy a whole new palmrest assembly because that's what the hinges attach to (the metal-roll cage underneath the motherboard, gpu, etc). Is it possible to just buy the roll cage by itself? I can't find any replacement palmrest assembly for the yoga 500 15isk, only for the yoga 500 15ibd. Would the 15ibd palmrest assembly work?

Hey guys, I purchased my Lenovo Yoga 710 15 inch laptop at the beginning of August and after a couple of days my screen went black and I couln't see my mouse or anything and the keyboard backlight was still on. I had to manually turn off the laptop by holding the power button. And since then it happens frequently. Sometimes I can go the whole day without it happening and days like today it will go black about 5-6 times a day. I contacted Lenovo technical support and the guy I was talking to said its not a hardware issue and maybe a softare issue. And I am getting sick and tired of this happening so often. I switched from a macbook to this and it feels like I made a huge mistake doing so. Nobody from Lenovo can tell me whats wrong with my laptop and I have updated all the drives and my computer is updated so I have no clue why it keeps doing it.  Can anyone please help me resolve this issue since no one from Lenovo can help me?

Hello, I'm not satisfied with fan behavior on my YOGA 500-15ISK. (i7-6500U / 8GB DDR3 / SSD 256GB / nVidia 940M) In the evening in quiet room it is very noisy. Fan speed very often jumps from 0% speed to higher even with no significantly cpu load or my pc activity and after some time (sometimes the fan does go off after few seconds, sometimes after minutes...) it jumps back to 0% and again and again.. randomly. It happens all the time, also I formated system and tried clean win10 instalation with all up to date drivers. But still same behavior. I can't see any reason why when I browse web through Chrome, watch videos, work with folders and files -> all in 2D, I have to listen this alternating louder and softer fan speed noise. Core temp software shows CPU temperature around 40C.  My old HP laptop without ssd is much quiter in 2D than this YOGA 500-15ISK. I much rather prefer constant slight noise than this constant turning on and off fan noise. It looks it is standard behavior on the Yoga laptops because of fan speed level setings, and most of Yoga users don't care, maybe can't hear that or just don't bother about that speed jumps. Or it could be some hw or sw problem? Maybe some wrong driver? How can I change speed level settings?I found program NoteBook FanControl where is config profiles for Yoga 11s and Yoga 13 and some more but nothing work to my fan speed. Proba...

Hello everyone, I have a lenovo yoga 500 15isk. The problem with it is that it won't detect my charger anymore. Since I noticed it a bit to late the battery is now dead and I cant run any tests or Software updates. This happened before but the charger then worked again after I plugged it out and in again, this time thats not the case. So if anyone has any suggestions i'd be glad to hear them. Regards Nixlas

A:Yoga 500 15ISK does not detect charger

Hi Nixlas,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you have active warranty then it would be best to have it reported to technical support.
You may also proceed checking if the charger is the problem following the power checkout guide here (page 21) if there is no other compatible charger available.
 
Common to power issue is the DC in port that also be worth checking for loose contact specially if the machine works with battery before the power got depleted.
 
I have this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes.

Hello everyone.I've experienced a problem in my Ideapad 700-15ISK, exactly the same problem seems to be popular in Y700-15ISK (often confused models), but I can't see any good solution for my model.When I run my laptop on internal battery, I can hear a short "pop" or "crack" noise from speakers before any sound - music, YouTube, Windows notification etc. The pop sometimes appears even when laptop doesn't play any sound. I happens only on internal battery, on AC adapter the problem doesn't exist. I read that in Y700-15ISK the solution which usually works is to reinstall the sound driver from Realtek website, but in my 700-15ISK any of these ways didn't help... I also tried installing older drivers, but the problem still exists.Does anyone have the same problem? 700-15ISK model is known to have serious problems with keyboard and touchpad in the past - these problems are solved, but a few days ago problem with crackling sound on battery appeared and this is really driving me nuts. :-OMy laptop is running Windows 10 x64 system, by the way.

I'm having an issue with the battery on my Y700. I generally work from my dining room table where I have the laptop connected to the charger and the charger plugged into the wall.  It sits getting power all day as I work. Consistetly in the mid-afternoon if I'm around I will discover that my laptop is no longer charging and that the power has run down to single digits.  If I unplug the charger from the laptop and plug it back in occasionally it will detect the charger and start taking a charge again.  Sometimes it will start charging again if I remove it from the wall.  Sometimes it will start taking a charge again if I remove the power cord from the charger. I replaced the charger with one that has a power light on it to see what was happening.  When the laptop gets down to single digits the power light is off.  If I disconnect from the laptop and re-plug it in to the wall the light comes back on.  However when I plug it in to the laptop the light will dim and then turn off. It's almost like the laptop is essentially forcing itself to discharge the battery once a day, which now that I type it sounds like a GREAT thing to preserve battery life, but not knowing where this feature is so I can make changes to it is not helping me be confident in using the laptop for a whole lot. Anyone else found this issue occuring?

My battery seems to charge very slowly when connected to AC and when I unplug I lose power in less than 20 minutes and the diagnostic says battery is in "Fair" condition and only charging at 41.38% of its original full charge capacity.  When I called customer service since I am still under warranty, they just said I could send in the laptop for repair which takes about 7 business days or go to a Best Buy for the GeekSquad to repair.  I went to Best Buy, but the Geek Squad said they would have to send it off for 13 days so none of this was helpful as this is my only laptop and I need it daily so to send it off for 7 business days would be difficult.  Are there any other options for repair that reduce the time significantly?  I can't believe Lenovo doesn't offer overnight shipping to expedite the process

I bought this laptop about 4 months ago because of its specifications, good price and I thought Lenovo was a trusted brand. The reason that I went to this forum is because I have a serious problem with the battery. It only runs 4 or 5 minutes without AC power and then the battery is completely empty. When you do a reboot (with the AC adapter plugged in) then it charges for about 10 minutes till it says it fully charged. I didn't know you couldn't remove the battery without opening te complete back cover! I even did a bios update to see if the problem of battery drain were fixed. I'm seriously thinking about sending this crappy product back to the store where I bought it!!

I am a Yoga 700-14ISK user for 2 years. And I had encounter serveral issues with this laptop before (and the service center helped me to fix them) However, now there is an issue I just have now - my battery is draining fast like 1% lost per 2-3 min for light usage (browsing on Chrome or doing my schoolwork either on Microsoft Office or Google Drive) I suspected it was due to my battery wear level. However, as I monitored it, I realised it keep fluctuating (from 19.64% to 42.02%) until I re-calibrate which gives me 38.51% and then 38.71% after a charge to 60%. Is it possible the battery wear level can cause the quick drain in battery?  Is this battery wear level normal? I would also like to point out that I had the battery changed over a year ago and I normally used my laptop for schoolwork and gaming (occasionally now after realising the issue.) I am also going to have an internship (at least 6 months) from July so I am very worried that my laptop can't last long especially its battery. Hence, should I go to a Lenovo service center and request for a battery replacement? Please give me any possible reasons on why the laptop battery starts to drain fast and its battery wear level sharp increase, and also possible solutions for these issues. I would like to know more about it in order to sustain my laptop at least for a year.

A:Yoga 500 15ISK doesn't auto rotate

Just checked mine, it didn't work, but I was missing ymc.exe in Task manager... And yes, restart helped. Next time it happens check for ymc.exe in details in task manager, I'm now trying to install some older version.

My yoga 710 (6th gen i5) would get bsod at least once a week. Usually when I am on chrome or on word, .I got this in october, the motherboard actually failed in november, forcing me to send it in for repair. They had to replace the whole motherboard as a result of the repair.  bsod started beginning of this year, even after the cumulative update for windows 10 it's still happening. the errors i have gotten are:KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, what failed: igdkmd64.sysSYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, what failed: igdkmd64.sys does anyone have any experience with this? I did some research and was told that hardware drivers might be the issue but i did a scan and could not find anything that needed to be updated.
