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.

Dear all, I would like to upgrade the touchscreen on the Thinkpad Yoga 260 - I have the 1366x768 model (a long and annoying story!) and I really want the 1080 screen - for obvious reasons. I am relatively technically competent (I'm a tinkerer) and have carried out these sorts of procedures on other laptops in the past. Which brings me to my question... Having upgraded the screen on a T450 and run into the problem of the display driver not accepting the new screen (some issue relating to EDIDs, or something like that) (https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/3t3z1d/lenovo_t450_lcd_replacement_cant_change_brightness... Am I going to encounter the same problem with the Yoga 260? Or potentially worse given that there are touch-screen issues involved too? Looking around at replacement panel assemblies they instruct not to use if the present resolution is wrong (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12-5-FHD-LCD-LED-Touch-Screen-Assembly-for-Lenovo-ThinkPad-Yoga-260-1920X1...) - it is just these particular panels, or am I screwed? Any success stories would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, TimRead other answers
I have a ThinkPad Yoga with a dead mainboard. My ThinkPad is the i5-4200U / 4GB model, and the mainboard says 'LA-A341P' on it. I've found a replacement mainboard online, with part number 03X5234. However, I have also found what appears to be the next model up from my board - an i7-4600U / 8GB model, part number 04X5478. Will the better model work in my laptop? Or should I play it safe and just buy the weaker one?
Depends what you want... I actually want an i5 in my laptop because the i7 is overkill. In my case I also have a desktop PC with an i7 for doing video processing... So, I would prefer a less powerful chip to carry around with better battery life, less fan noise, etc. Rather than replace your system board with an i7, why not get yourself a whole new i7 gaming laptop for $200 from China if that is what you need? If you have a read of the hardware maintenance manual there appears to be no difference between any of the system boards with regards to installation, so really it is your choice as to what tradeoff between portability and power you want to make. Usually the i7 boards are a bit more expensive... https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/s1_yoga_hmm_en_sp40a26742_01.pdfRead other 4 answers

Hello all,For quite a while now, I've been looking to upgrade my SSD in my X1 Yoga. As you may know, the X1 Yoga was available with either a SATA-based SSD or a PCIe-based SSD (NVMe). Unfortunately, information about compatibility isn't easy to come by. In fact, I never found a concrete answer to the question I have been asking all along: Can an X1 Yoga (i5-6200U model) ordered with a SATA-based SSD be upgraded to an NVMe drive? I found a lot of 'No' answers online, but with no proof of that actually being the case. The only cases I found of people upgrading their SSDs were folks with the i7 system boards. A few people have mentioned that Lenovo's official answer (when they asked) about the matter is that when you order it with a SATA SSD, you cannot upgrade to an NVMe drive. I didn't want to believe that they'd have a different part number for an i5-6200U board w/ 8 GB RAM for an SATA-based system versus an NVMe system. The slot physically accepts an M-keyed NVMe drive, despite the SSD in there being a B+M keyed drive. The BIOS also has a boot option for an NVMe drive. So, I took the plunge (and risk) and bought an NVMe drive, and am very pleased to report that it works just fine! There was no drama. The only thing I had to do was to change the boot option to boot from the NVMe disk instead of the built-in SATA one. I can't speak for the newer models, but mine (20FQ, i5...

The current configuration of my system (as bought) is 4Gb RAM. According to the specifictions, it is upgradable to 8Gb. I had a conversation with Sales Support via Chat trying to find the correct part number for 8Gb memory to replace the 4Gb. I was told that as my system is still under warranty, I would need to contact Technical Support for this to happen. Having done a number of searches on this forum, would I be right in suspecting that the existing 4Gb is soldered in to place - hence the need for a Warranty call to upgrade. I was advised that any attempt to make the change myself would void the warranty.Any thoughts please.

I recently purchased a Yoga 11e 20d9 model and so far I'm loving it. However, I wanted to upgrade the memory from 4gb to 8gb. I purchased Crucial 8GB Single DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) as all the reviews I read said this was okay to use, however, everytime I install the memory and I try to charge the laptop at the same time it crashes. I can run windows 10 perfectly without issue up until I try to charge it. I can charge ther laptop when the laptop is off but for the life of me I can't get it to coexist. I installed the original ram and everything works perfectly. Even if I'm in bios, as soon as I plug in the charger the laptop will crash. It literally has rips on the screen and everything fades out. As soon as I unplug it, the laptop works flawlessly. I returned the memory and got a replacement and it does the same exact thing. I updated both the BIOS and battery firmware. I am out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.Read other answers
I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated). However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities. Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping. The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for. The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon. Thanks,Read other answers
I am hhaving difficulty finding an acceptable scaling mix between resolution, system scaling, and edge scaling. At 1080p, 125%, 125%, os navigation is mostly fine, but edge text is way too large. At 1080p, 125%, 100%, edge text is way too small. At all combinations text is inflated (but crisp) in certain elements while fuzzy in others. What scaling combinations work best for you? I am considering returning this to Best Buy and upgrading to a Pro 4 / Book, or even a Mac. The scaling is ruining an otherwise great experience.Read other answers
I have two staff members with different Yoga models, but with the same pen issue. Say, for instance, OneNote is open. The pen doesn't draw or write, but it can select and still be recognized. When I try using an old stylus from an HP Elitebook, it works TOTALLY fine - even the button on the pen functions properly. This suddenly started after months of the Lenovo pens working fine. I thought maybe it was a driver issue, but it can't be as the HP pen works.... I'm thinking it's the pen itself just getting worn down? It looks okay though but may be just a little loose...

I have recently bought a Thinkpad Yoga 460 with Thinkpad Pen Pro. I leave it in the laptop slot for charging for more than a day and it gives me only a few minutes of usage. As per the user guide, it should be 80% charge in 15 seconds and 100% after 5 minutes. But it runs out of charge very soon. It shows me the low battery level indicator as soon as I use it on the screen. First day of usage (appox 4 days ago) it gave me about 30 - 45 minutes of continuous. But after that not more than 5 minutes. Please let me know if this is an issue with the Pen or Laptop charging port. Is there any way I can troubleshoot it?Please also let me know the average usage time for the pen, if you are continuously using it.

Welcome to the forums.
I do not have that kind of pen, but I think is the one that has some "bronce contacts" at the top of the pen. I had read some other post about it, just in case check that "contacts" to make sure they are touching with the charger when you put the pen into it's holder. Sometimes the contacts may move.
I just bought a Thinkpad Yoga from Best Buy and upon opening, found that the pen pro included does not work. I'm on the most updated version of all the drivers, and the touch screen and multitouch with my hands still work. After taking an multimeter to measure the voltage of the pen, I found that the pen just wasn't charging. I'm a bit hesitant to check the voltage of the charging silo itself but my suspicion is that the pen is dead. Could this be a software problem? Has anyone encountered a similar problem? Should I return to pen and the laptop to bestbuy or just the pen? Or should this issue be brought to Lenovo instead?
I don't have a 460, but I do have a 260, which is a smaller, but VERY similar machine. I had the same problem and I believe it is not the pen. Before you do anything, you need to unplug the machine and disable the internal battery. You do that by going into the BIOS and under the config tab, look under power. There will be an option to disable the battery. When this is selected, the machine will turn off. The battery is re-enabled the next time you plug it in. IF THE BATTERY IS NOT DISCONNECTED, YOU WILL CREATE A SHORT AND BLOW A IRREPLACEABLE FUSE ON THE MOTHERBOARD. Remove the pen and look inside, where you will see 2 contacts. My guess is that one or both got pushed back into the housing during manufacturing process. You can take something fine and sharp like a needle and gently free them so they will pop back out. Once I popped mine out, the pen charged very quickly and I never had another problem with it.Read other 4 answers
Hi, I have 3 problems with my Yoga 460: 1. (this should be easy):Where do I get a backup image for my system from? I did not find any links on the support page. 2. I tried to download the bios update to version 1.18 from the website. If I click on the windows installer file, there is always the message "file not found". If I try to download the iso file (which is indeed working), I receive an error message about wrong format when trying to mount it to a usb drive. 3. This is the most important issue for me at the moment:As soon as I try to update my system with Lenovo Companion software, I always get the message that I would have to upgrade my Lenovo System Interface Driver. If I hit ok to install this app, I get a download link. I tried installing it several times. After having restarted the system, the same error appears again (with the same download link). I would really appreciate if anyone of you could help me on these topics! Greetings from Germany, Simon

Maybe it can help your 3) point by installing "Lenovo Application Interface Driver for Windows 10".
Download it from here:
Check if after installing it, it will work with Lenovo Companion.

My hinges are quiet and smooth, but they are tight and sturdy so that the screen is stable in any orientation. I'm sorry, but without hearing or feeling yourem there is no way for me to say if yours are "normal", but it is common for a tight hinge to make a little noise when it begins a motion.Read other 7 answers

I intend to buy an X1 Yoga (IPS or OLED) for my business and connect it to my two Dell U2417H monitors. Looking at the Dell user guide, I see that you should be able to use one cable from the laptop and daisy chain the two monitors.
