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.)

A:The YOGA S730 heats up

Hi Stohenry! Welcome to our forums community. Is it still overheating when it is on idle? Could you try updating the BIOS firmware here: https://support.lenovo.com/ provide the model or serial number and go to Drivers and Software tab. Look for BIOS/EUFI and install it. Restart the computer and check if the issue persist. Update us with the result.

If you formatted the hard drive, you most likely wiped out the recovery partition, so that's not an option. Did you format MBR or GPT?

Hi!Just bought a new Yoga S730-13IWL (81J0002VMX). After setting it up I also updated Windows 10 to version 1903. I noticed that Lenovo Vantage also had updated (almost) all drivers/BIOS to their latest versions (see screen dump). Great! However, something seems to be missing: Thunderbolt software/drivers. According to the Lenovo download page:   https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/no/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-s730-13iwl/downloa... there is a new (25 Jun 2019) Thunderbolt driver available (under USB Device, FireWire, IEEE 1394): "This package provides Intel Thunderbolt (TBT) Driver and is supported on Yoga S730-13IWL, 730S-13IWL and running the following Operating Systems: Windows 10 (64-bit)", 133.9 MB, 25 Jun 2019. The version number shown is: Intel 1.41.613.1 When examining my Yoga S730-13IWL I can currently see the following installed Thunderbolt software and drivers: Software package version: 17.4.77.400Application version:  17.4.77.10Service version:  17.4.77.6Controller driver version: UnknownNetworking driver version: UnknownThunderbolt(TM) bus driver  (tbt100x.sys): 17.4.77.13Thunderbolt(TM) networking driver (tp2p100x.sys): 17.4.77.5 - Should the "Intel Thunderbolt (TBT) Driver" version Intel 1.41.613.1 be installed on my laptop?- Should this have been done automatically by Lenovo Vantage (together with the othe...

I have a problem with my Yoga s730. At least once to a few times per day, the screen will flash black for 2-4 seconds and when it comes back, it will close Plex media player and sometimes the Youtube tab if it's open. If the screen is dimmed due to nightlight settings, it will also override that and turn the nightlight off. What could the problem be? I've tried updating all drivers and BIOS. TIA.

Hi all, I bought a Yoga S730 lately and it's been doing good. However, I found that when I unplug it, the wifi is not stable. It will stay connected to my wifi but there isn't Internet until I restart the wifi adapter. But it will happen again after less than 30 mins. If I plugged in, the issue didn't occur so far. I have been researching about that issue and some suggest that I should change the Power Management to uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and also the Wireless Adapter Settings in Power Options to Maximum Performance. But that doesn't help. Is it just me or does anyone has the same issue? Thank you!

Today I got the S730-13IWL delivered and noticed a tiny dent(see image, above the f6 key) while setting up windows, after completing the installation I went on and test the laptop, however I noticed that the fans got really loud sometimes while nothing was running and the computer gets extremely hot while watching a video on youtube. I went to update the bios and use lenovos vantage tool as well updated  the drivers but the problem still exists. What can I do about the tiny dent and the overheating problem? 

A:YOGA S730 small dent on delivery and heats up

Welcome to the forums.  If you have a dent and you are unhappy I would ask for an exchange immediately.  As time passes you can't get an exchange plus you might be considered CID(Customer Induced Damage).  With that being said it seems so small I would keep it.  BUT you are not me and its your money you are spending and ultimately you are the one that needs to be happy.  All I'm saying is if you want to exchange do it right away while you still can.

Hello,  I recently bought this laptop for business use. I have many problems with since I bought it, including blue screens like critical process died and store unexpected exception. After a long search for a solution and made a shipment for repair that gave nothing, I reinstalled Windows with a USB key.  Currently, I still have blue screens with the kernel power code 41,63. When it restarts, I only see the windows boot manager screen and I have to restart manually.  In addition, I also have recurring wifi losses, the laptop loses the connection and displays the network as "connected, no internet", I am forced to switch to airplane mode or disconnect manually before reconnect to find the wifi.  Hope you can help me because the computer is very unstable in the state.  Thank you, and sorry if my english is bad but I'm french ..!

I updated my two Yoga laptops this wee on two different days. I noticed that after the update my yoga mouse couldn't pair (connect) to each computer.  There was no issue before the update. Because it happened with both computers, I suspect there is an issue with the update. I came to the Forum and the new support Lenovo system to see if others have the same issue but I don't see any post related to this topic nor an updated driver for the Yoga Mouse. Are you having the same issue?

Like stated in the description. the Lenovo Yoga Control Service require 3% out of the CPU, all the time. and the only thing the service does is checking the orientation of the screen, and disable keyboard and mouse when flipped. This is absurd, especially since it drains battery constantly. I hope that this will be fixed eventually, until that time, I will turn the service off and use the computer like a regular laptop.

I own a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (1st gen as a Yoga; 4th gen as a Carbon), Product 20FQCTO1WW. Starting two days ago, it randomly reboots. The event log shows that it has had an unexpected reboot ("The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."), but reading the events leading up to the reboot doesn't give me much of a clue as to why. The only interesting events are messages that a core of the CPU is being throttled ("The speed of processor X in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report."). I took the bottom cover off and agressively blew compressed air in every crevice. This did remove some dust buildup, but the system wasn't as dirty as I expected. In fact, it looked pretty clean. I also vaccuumed. And I removed the fan and thermal heatsink and throughly blew compressed air through it and made sure that there was no gunk clogging the heatsink air fins. After reassembling, it seems to be slightly more stable, but it has still rebooted a few times. There are lots of threads where people complain about fan noise and ask how they can reduce the speed of their fan. I'd like to run mine at max 100% of the time (noise be darned) for a few days just to see if that keeps the system from randomly rebooting. However, I don't know of a sofware setting where I can control... Read more
