Q: Lenovo 100-15IBD Laptop (ideapad) - can't install ...

Hi, I have a problem with an ideapad100 laptop which were recently bought from local retailer. I downloaded all all relevant drivers for this model for Windows 7 Home 64bit. I'm unable to install almost none of them. Here are some of the errors I'm getting:"This BIOS is only for Lenovo 100-14/15IBD. Your macine does not match with this BIOS." - BIOS"No appropriate driver to be installed" - LAN Driver"NVIDIA Installer cannot continue. This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware" - Nvidia VGA Driver"Error 1935" - OneKey Optimizer"This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software" - Intel VGA Driver"Could not find the device for this driver" - Conexant Audio Driver KB2685811 was fineRealtek LAN was fine Is it possible that they sold a laptop with wrong parts? Or do you have any other ideas? Thanks

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.)

Had the same problem. Tried to install Win7 in hope of making the HDMI output project my screen on external monitor, but gave up as got the same error messages as you did. Then installed Win 8.1 and made the external screen work...for about 5 minutes. Then installed Win 10 but external screen still ot working, tried at least 4 different VGA drivers, updated BIOS, etc. My conclusion is that there are serious driver issues with this laptop, Win 7 do not even bother trying. Try Win 8.1 or 10 and let me know if you can use HDMI to project screen ,and the driver version you use! Thanks

Hi , i would like to know if i can change/add new GPU to my laptop. Thanks.

A:Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBD 80qq

Good day and welcome to the community.There's no 'socketed' dGPU. If so equipped, it's soldered to the system board as in most all laptops. Have a look at pages 63-64 of the hardware manual, item #11, for system boards: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_100_15_ibd_hmm_201508.pdf
Hope this helps to clarify.

Hi guys. I have a Lenovo laptop. I tried to clean the fan from gpu and then I turned the laptop on, without the fan plugged, and my pc have died for some hours. After that, it was running hard, and I reinstalled the windows. That didn't helped. I installed the drivers and it didn't found my NVIDIA 920m gpu. I think it's from the motherboard. That means it have to be replaced? Thanks. Sorry for my bad english.

I was wondering if anyone has upgraded or swapped out their hdd for a solid state drive on the Ideapad 305 15IBD? My specific model number is 80NJ00F5UK, I have been able to find an mSata ssd drive which says its compatible with the 305 IBD, but not the exact model number above.  To be honest Im pretty happy with the performance of the 1TB hdd that i have but just want to confirm whether its possible or not to swap out for an ssd if I wanted to in the future.  The main reason would be to squeeze a bit more battery life, as its one area where the laptop is a bit weak. mSata SSDhttps://www.ipc-computer.eu/notebook-spareparts/lenovo/300-serie/ideapad-305-15ibd-80nj005j/hdd-12

My Yoga 500 ideapad totally loses it when I plug it into power. The CPU slows down imidiately and runs at 100% usage every time I make an action (opens Chrome takes like 30 seconds). In Speccy, I can see, that the CPU runs at a speed of approx. 500 Mhz (Core speed). If I unplug the laptop, the speed goes up to like 1,9 Ghz when I opens chrome (chrome opens instantly) and CPU usage maxes out at 40% or so. I can now close Chrome, plug in the laptop once again, and if I open chrome now,it maxes out at 500 Mhz speed with 100% CPU usage. I have just completely reinstalled windows (10, 64 bit) hoping that this would solve the problem.

Hello All, I have a problem with my new Ideapad 100-15IBD that I received today. Wireless or Ethernet connection is horribly slow - I have 50Mb/s connection and laptop is using 4-5Mb/s max (just to mention even Chrome download takes about an hour with this connection speed/quality). I have it with W10, but also formatted and installed W7 to check, if maybe it's faulty Realtek drivers (I tried both from Lenovo Support website and Realtek ones). On both versions of Windows the problem occurs. I am now back to W10, so it's as fresh as it gets. I tried different settings of Network Card, tried looking through forums about similar problems, but can't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone, preferably Support Team, has any tips or ideas why it's like this. The Network adapters I see are:Bluetooth devices x2 (not important for me at this point I believe)Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (tried meddling with this one, now working on default as it's fresh installation)Realted RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NICI of course got it from retail, it's brand new, so I do not see how it could be broken already (talking about network adapter), so I thought that it's maybe software problem? Also - I noticed it's working even worse on 802.11n only than mixed. Thanks for any tips,c. PS. Sorry for my English, I'm not native speaker (Polish).

Didn't realize the laptop was unplugged and went completely dead sitting there for a month. Went to plug in to power up and nothing.

It also does not show that the time is ticking off. Nothing happens. Then I almost have to restart my LT for everything to work again. This must have happened after a Windows update or something.I have since done about 5 recoveries with "one key recovery" in the hope of getting it working again. I have done this again today. Still nothing. I tested the speaker on my wife's HP LT and it worked perfectly first time. It picked it up immediately, paired and it worked straight away.I batteled to delete the device and took this screen shot where it shows that there is a problem with the driver. Shot attached.I will really appreciate any help and suggestions I can get. Please help me getting the speaker to work again. Thank you so long.Deon
