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 guys, I need to stream live screen to TV,  due to existing coax cabling I decided to use HDMI to QAM Modulator, I cant get Video signal, I tried the same thing with Asus and HP laptops - it works fine, but not with my Y700.  I use h264 encoding, [email protected] resolution and QAM 128 if it will help anyhow.

I have Lenovo Yoga 370 and has a problem of getting multichannel audio work through Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Dock with HDMI port. I couldn't get the audio output with 5.1 channel audio on that HDMI and Dislay Port. Is there something wrong with my setup or this is a limitation of Thunderbolt 3 Dock to provide multichannel audio. I can use only 2 channel stereo audio only.

I've read a lot of reviews for USB C to HDMI adapters on Amazon, and I can't seem to find a consensus on which ones will work with the Lenovo 720.  I see there is an official Lenovo adapter, but it is double the price of most of the other adapters.  There are other adapters that specifically say that they don't work with the Lenovo 720.  Does anyone have first hand experience with a good adapter that is plug and play?  I saw someone else talking about adjusting the deep colour setting (or something like that) on their monitor to get the adapter to work.  I don't want to have to do anything like that.

Hello, My HDMI port was working fine since the time I bought my laptop. This morning the HDMI port stopped working. When I connect the HDMI cable, the second monitor is detected but nothing is displayed. I am using the display port for the time being. If somebody could help me out it would be great. I unistalled and reinstalled both Intel and Nvidia graphics drivers. Additionally, I opened the laptop to check the solder connection of the HDMI port and it looks fine.

I am not suggesting a particular seller.  I simply searched for micro-HDMI adapter and this was the first one listed.

I have a Yoga Lenovo 310  bought last month. It has a white noise that appears when I use the speakers, with headphones and when I use HDMI (it transfers to the TV). It is as if a radio is not set on the right station.  I have tried updating the drivers but nothing seems to work. Actually, it is getting more and more frequent now (it is more frequent to have the weird noise than to have normal sound).  Any tips?

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.

The history appears to show an automatic update occurred overnight.  I was running Windows 8.1.  I upgraded to 10.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the intel video driver, I reinstalled the chipset driver.  I have trimmed the micro HDMI cord as suggested in one of the posts.  I have seen enough posts on the various boards to know my issue does not seem to be an isolated case... but I haven't been able to find an explanation of the cause or a reliable solution.  Any help is appreciated.

With and without the battery.  Also the novo button.  Still nothing. So what can i do?   Is it a option to try a other adapter (got only a weaker adapter from a tablet) or   just use a normal c USB cable in the powerknop and connecting that with the laptop to see  what the laptop does?   (Need to be sure i won't  do anything to the laptop it self.) Thanks for the help anyway!

Just booted up my old Lenovo Yoga 12 from a few years ago. I erased all partitions and installed Windows 10 from an ISO file on a USB flash drive and it's been freezing constantly. Sometimes to the point that it's unusable. I've wiped and reinstalled 4-5 times and still keeps freezing so I wiped and reinstalled Windows 8.1 from and ISO file and it still freezes. Once it freezes, everything locks except for the cursor. I can't open or close anything or even use CTRL-ALT-DEL to pull up task manager. Anyone with any thoughts on this? At first I suspected it was the OS but now trying 2 different OS's and still freezing I suspect it could be a hardware issue? Totally lost and don't know where to proceed with this.

we've dealt with these problems before, unfortunately this time we cannot find the onekey recovery for this particular model.  ive scoured the net and come up null.  basically the system image and recovery image is corrupted on the msata ssd.  regular recovery media will not detect the ssd nor will the bios.  the OS partition is intact and not corrupt.  ive tried rebuilding the bcd to no avail.  normally we can generally get a system image from the manufacturer and backup files and reinstall via image, but Lenovo refuses to issue a recovery as the warranty expired on Jan 1st 2016.  So basically the customer is out a pricey computer because lenovo will not provide a recovery, even with serial and proof of purchase.  Traditional reinstall will not work either as it needs to be flashed via an image.  i find it to be ridiculous as the customer has no recourse to correct the issue.  i have verified the ssd is functioning correctly via an external adapter that I use to work with msata/m.2/mpcie etc.  Im at a loss here on what to do as Lenovo is zero help.  Does anyone here have the recovery for the yoga 2 pro please and thank you.

Hello! I'm having a rotatation problem - the screen doesn't rotate itself automaticly on Win10 - I actually have to turn on and off the auto-rotate button to do the rotation - but it's not the cause right now.  After that I decided to update the BIOS in order to eliminate that problem (at least I hoped for that) - so I downloaded a file from Lenovo site (bacna0ww). It updated itself but it didn't actually turned off the computer (the closing screen turned on for a second and got back to my desktop), so I had to turn it off by myself. After that it got updated (shortly saying) and then the "boot menu" appeard with a boot device to choose - which is my SSD (nothing else). I can choose the device by clicking enter but nothing happens. Screen flickers for a moment and got back immiedietly to the same boot menu with a SSD to choose as a boot device.  I was able to boot it by setting "legacy boot" and turning off UEFI by it - but why it actually happend? Can I turn it back as it was before? I tried installing the older BIOS version (it installed with an automatic restart without a problem) but it didn't help. The "boot menu" on UEFI still appears and still holds me back, so I can't boot by simply choosing my SSD and clicking enter on it. Will you be able to help me? Moreover - the auto rotation still doesn't work.
