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.)

Had this laptop for about a year now and it has worked wonderfully. But the past few weeks it has randomly stopped charging for about a second or 2 then it starts charging again. Except just now, it stopped charging altogether. There are a few times here and there where it would charge for a fraction of a second. Think the problem is the laptop itself or the charger?

A:Lenovo y700 not charging

There is actually no real way to determine whether it's the charger or the laptop right off the bat, we can only speculate and make assumptions that are MOST LIKELY true.BUY A NEW CHARGER. If your laptop does charge, most likely it's your charger. EDIT: Also, let me mention that if your charger will charge for a second then stop, and it keeps doing that or you keep plugging it in and out while it's doing that, you can very quickly damage your battery. It happened to me.

Hi Team, I bought a new lenovo ideapad Y700 laptop last month, for the last two weeks i have been trying to charge my laptop but it just wouldnt go beyond 29%. I did a good amount of homework searching for energy management software and checking for power configurations options in bios. But none have helped. I even tried to do express charge but no luck. I am posting here to seek assistance to solve it on my own. Regards,Manoj.

Hello!I write here with a problem that I have since the day before yesterday.When my Laptop is on and the charger is plugged in, the battery won't charge, giving the notification "plugged in, not charging". Laptop works like the charger wasn't plugged - energy drains from battery.I suppose that is a software problem, because when laptop is turned off or hibernated it charges normally.Formating didn't help at all.Microsoft support told me to recalibrate battery - didn't work.Lenovo support told me to try another charger in service - I will try if nothing else works.Maybe someone had the problem like that and solved it without going to service, which I want to keep as a last resort solution.Thanks in advance!

I don't why Lenovo has Windows 10 Energy Management Drivers available on the download page that don't work. I tried installing and window just shuts down. I read that its because its not compatible with Windows 10. So here is my question. My Y700-15isk is plugged in and when I roll over the battery icon on the taskbar is says "74% and not charging". Is this conervation mode? Why isn't the laptop fully charging? If I am about to go on the road for example, wouldn't it make sense that my battery is able to charge up to 100%? Anyone shed any light on Lenovo's logic?

I just got my Lenovo ideapad Y700 everything was working fine until updating Lenovo settings and windows 10. The battery now only charges to 98% and continues to say charging. Tried to open up Lenovo settings to see if I could change the battery settings to fix the problem. Now the settings won't stay open it just closes 5-30 seconds after I open it. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling, still has the problem. Any thoughts?

Purchased my Y700 Notebook back in early July 2016.  Very recently, my battery would read 100%, but would shutoff a few minutes after removing AC power and attempting to run the laptop from it's battery power.  I am a user who uses AC power most of the time as my laptop is more of a mobile platform for me since I need to move it around alot. Last night, battery still read at 100%.  I messed around with some power settings past few days to see if I could get get this problem figured out.  Powered it on this morning after shutting it down last night and the battery is now at 0%.  The battery indicator in system tray reads "0% available (plugged in, charging)".  It has been saying this for several hours and it does not appear to be charging (or able to hold a charge).  I am still under warranty.  Before making a service call, I want to check the forums to see if anyone has had this particular problem and been able to solve it.  I realize these newer lithium batteries systems are a bit more complex and I am still learning about them.  Would be appreciative of any assistance. My initial thought is that the battery is simply not able to hold a charge anymore (it only has 34 charge cycles on it) and is defective.  The other possibility is the charging circuit is defective in some way, but I am not thinking this is likely considering that the battery was reading 100% last night.

Pretty much what it says in the title.  I have recently been needing to use my Notebook for extended periods of time, and I had found that, despite the laptop reconizing that the charging cord is in, it fails to charge while in use and only charges when the computer is hibernating or when then laptop shuts down. I've taken a look at the battery settings, including Conservation Mode which seems to cause this type of problem, but I've had little to no luck fixing to problem. I would really appreciate if someone could give me some advice on how to fix the issue, as it is getting in the way of my work having to use it for only an hour, then have it charge for an hour.

if someone else asked that already i am sorry i couldn't find it.i have a Y700-15ISK 80NV and i am just curious about how much ram can i put in it.in almost every site i see 16gb is the max but that doesn't seem right. the cpu supports up to 64 gb so thats not problem.and ddr4 can be found 16gb per stick so on most models that has 2 slots. it means 32gb.which leads me to the strangest thing. by specs of all y700 (and mine) it has only 2 slots of ram.but according to the task manager and cpu z (program) i have 4 slots! which means 64gb of ram!!what is going on??   

A:lenovo y700 max ram

Which Y700 is this?
 
 
Pretty much it looks like that all Y700 models support Upto 16GB RAM.
http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y700-series/y700-15-inch/
 
The hardware maintenance manual also says about 8GB per slot and there are only 2 slots (Pg 78) -
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y700-15_17isk_15acz_touch-15isk_hmm_201510....
 
Anyways, for gaming you dont need more than 8gb of RAM, atleast not yet. I am playing Witcher 3 on Ultra settings with ONLY 8gb of RAM.

I'm hoping someone can guide me as to which is the correct m.2 SSD for this laptop, as Lenovo's website is a little confusing. They talk about a B end socket and an M end socket which I understand. I'm wondering if a Samsung Evo 850 m.2 which appear to have both B & M slots can be used for either socket application by simply flipping the drive over?? I have heard that the EVO 850 can be used as a boot device, but the EVO 950 cannot. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Lenovo 80NV005CUS Y700 15.6 - m.2 SSD

Wikipedia actually gives a decent explanation of this form factor. The Samsung supports B+M keys, giving you the option to use it in the manner outlined by Wikipedia. However, it really should be inserted one way; there's no such way to flip it over in the manner you outlined. In fact, if you did something like that, there's a possibility you could damage the drive.

So I have a Lenovo Y700 15ISK. I got the model with the 1 TB harddrive and no SSD. I decided to install my own 500 gig M.2 SSD, specifically this. My problem is that my computer doesn't seem to recognize it. I'm not sure if I'm missing something here, or if I maybe got a defective SSD. But I'm not seeing anything other than the HDD in disk management or in device manager. I thought it was probably because it just wasn't seated properly, but I've tried 3 or 4 times now and I'm pretty sure it's placed in there the way it's supposed to be. So I'm not really sure what to do now. I think it's worth mentioning that I got the SSD refurbished so it could be that, but I didn't wanna jump the gun before making sure that it's not me messing up here.  Thank you guys in advance!

Trying to install mantioned above HDD into laptop I found that for SSD versions Lenovo does not include required HDD cable. I spent hours searching amazon and ebay - but nothing, than i contacted Lenovo support and they told that lenovo is not provideng such a spare part, and advice me not to open up laptop t keep warranty. Do somone have a solution for such an issue? Dear Lenovo team, is such a thing is a normal course of Lenovo business?I think a lot of people around the world will purchase SDD versions to be able to use their HDD with tonnes of informations instead oferred by Lenovo WD slim (which also is not best bay in terms of quality and performance), please advise!

I decided to invest in a new laptop as my other one had fallen on the ground, and lately for the past two month's all I've been having with it was troubles. Ther first problem I had was with the external microphone I used (Blue Yeti) It wouldn't detect or something and eventually made my speakers and microphone stop working all together. With no clue on how to fix it I ended up factory resetting my product. Everything's been fine with this problem, but if you have a fix to it if it arrises again then that'd be helpful.

I asked this question on a solved thread, so I wasn't sure if it would ever get answered. Anyway, I bought a Lenovo Y700(model 80NW000PUS), but the 1TB WD blue slim 5400rpm didn't sound too sexy for me. I'm a power user(gaming, AutoCAD, misc.media) so I ordered a 1TB WD Black 7200rpm(It wasn't slim, but it still fit-maybe that was the problem?) and the machine didn't read it at all (the disk manager, nor the BIOS would pick it up), but worked when I switched back to the WD Blue that came with it. I figured the HDD was DOA, so I called Lenovo just to be sure and they told me that the laptop didn't support HDD beyond 1TB 5400rpm. They suggested if I wanted more performance, I could go with an SSHD so long it was still 5400rpm, which I don't believe is worth the trouble. So, I want to know my options, because I can't imagine why a GAMING laptop would not support 7200rpm. I already have an 128GB SSD in the M.2 slot that I boot from. So, basically should I just suck it up and deal with the HDD that it shipped with, or has someone had success with a 7200rpm HDD. If so, is the performance worth the upgrade? Or is an SSHD at 5400rpm worth it? I'm trying to stay at 1TB, so SSDs are out(expensive! Plus, the laptop doesn't support it). Thanks!

Hi all,  I'm planning on upgrading the RAM in my Y700-15ISK system, I recently installed a 1tb SSHD and this is my next step. My only issue is that I'm not sure on what RAM is applicable, using sites such as Kingston's system scanner and also Crucial's doesn't show my system specs accurately and therefore I don't feel all too confident about their results. After looking into is seems I need DDR4 SO-DDIM which is running at 1.2v and 2133MHz. I currently have (1x4GB) installed and I am planning on upgrading to a 16GB kit (2x8GB). After looking about I came to find this: http://www.ebuyer.com/728407-corsair-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-sodimm-2133mhz-c15-memory-kit-cmso16gx4m2a2133c...Does anyone have any opinions? Thanks.
