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 have seen people on Youtube who either upgrade their existing SSD's or just simply install an SSD instead of an HDD. However my questions is, can I install an SSD to my laptop which has no SSD to begin with. Also, if there is a way I can, can you please suggest a good model of SSD? Thank you guys for your attention.

Hi!I've purchased my Lenovo Y700 a month ago. But ever since, laptop keeps crashing. Usually it was twice a day. But today since 10 AM (2PM here as I am writing) it have crashed 3 times already.I talked to the shop owner where I've bought the laptop. He have 'tested' it for 2 days and said everything is alright.But after i got it back, it still kept crashing. When i say crashing I mean laptop freezes, artifacts appear on the screen and weird noises get out of the speakers.Since i got laptop back from the shop I've started taking pictures of screen when it freezes and taking videos of it. Here is the link to my folder with photos and videos i've taken.link to the folder I have no idea how to reproduce those crashes.They appear as random. Not necessarily while gaming. It often happens when I am just browsing internet, listening to music, programming, watching videos on youtube. After some research i got to the conclusion that my processor might be defective. After turning off my dedicated GPU (gtx 960m) in BIOS, I've tried to turn CS:GO on integrated graphics (intel graphics hd 530) and it crashed like after 3 minutes. Please. I need some help. I use this laptop for work and those crashes are both dangerous and irritating for me. Specs of laptop:i7 6700HQGTX 960madditional SSD: SAMSUNG MZVPV256 256GBadditional RAM: 16GB (2X 8GB 2133mhz GOODRAM)

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!

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.
