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.)

The laptop came with pre-installed Windows 8.1 x64 and I wanted to install Windows 7 x64 Ultimate so I could enter it to a domain. I made a bootable usb with Win7 and reached the partition section on the installation wizard.
I deleted all the partitions that the system already had (Recovery. MSR and others) and procceded with the installation succesfully. After the installation finished, my system was not able to boot and it is restarting every time it reaches the
"Starting Windows" screen.

The partitions for the HDD in the beggining, looked like this.

Hi, i got the Laptop Lenovo IdeaPad 100-14IBY Model: 80MH003TGE and tried to replace the interal 2gb ddr3l sodimm ram with 8gb ddr3 sodimm ram and the laptop won't start up, so my guess is that the mainboard does not support the normal ddr3 ram. When i switch back to the 2gb, everything works just fine.I even tried to update the bios, but that does not seem to do the trick either. Can anybody confirm this or has information on the subject?  

A:Lenovo Ideapad 100-14IBY change the RAM

Hi Bontempi1950 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As per product specification and Hardware manual (page 26) :
Memory:  DDR3L-1333 MHz / 1600 MHz SODIMM 1 (max 8 GB) 
 
DDR3L socket on the board would only be able to accept DDR3L (low voltage) RAM 
Inversely , the DDR3L would work on a DDR3 and a DDR3L socket board (backward compatible). 
 
Related discussions here and here.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hello guys, I just bought a new Lenovo 100-14IBY Ideapad without an OS. Installed Windows 8.1 and all of the drivers from the Lenovo Support page, but the Wireless adapter is just not working, it's not even recognized in the Device Manager. I tried switching the Airplane mode on and off again, checked the configuration settings in the BIOS and the WAN is enabled. I don't see a physical Wireless switch anywhere on the laptop and there is no "F" button for turning the Wi-Fi on and off on the keyboard.. so at the moment I don't know what else to do. I have also tried all of this on Windows 7 also, of course no success. Could someone suggest something please? Many thanks!

Hello, I like to replace my standard harddisk in my Ideapad 100-14IBY with a SSD. I have read the corresponding Maintenance manual and followed the instructions step by step.It is impossible to remove the keyboard without breaking it, it seems like it is glued. Is there any advise, other than sending it in to a service partner, how to safely remove the keyboard ? I just dont get it why Lenovo really makes it so hard for users to change the drive in this particular model. Thank you in advance

System: Windows 10 64 bitAfter turning it on from sleepmode the keyboard and mouse weren't working. So I restarted it and Windows installed some updates. The keyboard and the TouchPad still weren't working. The USB mouse was, also the FN keys. I tried the F6 button it didn't help, so with the screen keyboard I was able to log in and type the pass. After that I went to device manager and the Lenovo TouchPad had a yellow triangle. So I went to Lenovo website and downloaded the driver, uninstalled and installed the new one, restarted again - no luck. When I clicked on the mouse menu in control panel popped up a message that said "couldn't connect to the driver. Etc etc" In device manager even after the update it was with yellow triangle. So I saw in a thread here in the forum that sometimes the installing of Synaptics driver helped, but after that even the USB mouse stopped working and the FN keys too, so I am no longer able to log in to the notebook with the screen keyboard. I can't enter BIOS with F2. Somehow I managed to get into recovery and the USB mouse was working there but when I tried to go into safe mode I can't because of the FN keys. Any suggestions how to solve this problem?

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Hi I'm new to the forums and I'm having a problem installing Windows 8. I downloaded the Win8 assist and proceeded through the steps and purchasing a copy of Win8 Pro. Now it led me through to a long download where it took at first 11 hours but I switched Ethernet cable in where it momentarily paused before continuing at 1 min download. Then asked for a reset so I did. When coming back no sign of win 8 assist. Now whenever i click on Win 8 setup it says:

Setup is unable to launch Install.exe

The system cannot find the file specified.
[Errorr = 0x80070002]

Has the download been corrupted to the internet change? If so any idea how I can uninstall the original donwload files and do it again?

Reinstalling Windows XP and problems accessing Laptop HDD to backup files

I have been using the command below to install XP onto another HDD for my Targa as a upgrade/replacement. I have been using the Targa laptop long with the new HDD plugged inside an enclosure to do the installation as I know that it couldn't be done on different computers due to different hardware and drivers.

E:\I386\winnt32.exe /syspart:D: /tempdrive:D: /makelocalsource /noreboot

where E is my external DVD drive (main CD drive not working) and D is the new HDD plugged in the enclosure

I think it was on the "preparing installation stage" and it said it will take 60mins. After copying all installations files to the enclosure, I think the /makelocalsource commands makes it do that. After it finishes copying the files the install window just closes and I was left with all the files it copied to the HDD on the enclosure. I pretty sure the window shouldn't do that and just to make sure I took out the 160GB HDD from the enclosure and replaced it witht the current HDD into the HDD bay of the targa and as I expected it didn't work.

The 160GB was formatted in NTFS beforehand (Quick format)so I didn't tell setup to format it again too but I wasn't too sure of the file allocation size so left as default. I just tried making another partition on the replacement HDD too with 800MB as FAT32 but after entering the comma... Read more

I have tried to go around this by purchasing a 2.5 inch IDE laptop caddie and removed the orginal hard drive and plug it via usb so i could possibly install xp on the laptop with a removable drive instead.
I have tried multiple discs and multiple versions of xp with the SP3 failing at 33% with the error of unable to copy the file spnike.dll and on SP1 failing to copy lprmonui.dll at 29% on the install.

If anyone could sheld some light on this laptop and what could fix it be much appriecated :D
I think that maybe the laptops CD drive could be faulty, i have experience with computers and laptop hardware and software repairs and studing computer networking so i am not a noob and are abit stuck, thank you for your help :P




Sounds to me like you need a new hard drive first and foremost. There are really 4 reasons for install failure being hard drive, memory, cd disk or cd drive but this sounds like the hard drive to me.

Houston, I have a problem. It started yesterday when attempting to log on to a user account, McAffee states that it detected a virus and recommends a scan. I click 'ok' once or twice and the following message appears: application failed to initialize (0xc0000005).

After reading through some of your posted solutions, I had to C-A-D to get task manager up so I could run Microsoft Anti-Spyware. It detected one and I removed it. I then started a McAffee scan and it found another one (maybe more, but I fell asleep waiting for it to finish). When I logged back in, McAffee was saying the same thing, I C-A-D and a c:\ window appears saying c:\WINDOWS\temp\setup.exe

It has been like this for 45+ minutes. I can attempt to shut it down, and it asks if you're sure (which I am not) so I cancelled out to let it run. The cursor inside the c:\ box appears to be moving around every 30 to 90 seconds. . . leading me to believe that it is doing something.

When I fire McAffee backup, I cannot find the one file it found before I fell asleep (not in quarentine anyway).

Any recommendations?

When trying to run Windows install it gets stuck on "Setup is starting".

I have waited for about 30 minutes or more in both cases just in case it was just taking a really long time but the laptop showed no

activity. I have tried several times and gotten the same results.

I ran Puppy Linux from a live CD and was able to access the hard drive to back up the user folder so the hard drive is readable. I ran

ntfsfix and it was processed successfully but it didn't actually fix anything.

So I booted from the Windows disk again and used shift-F10 to get the command prompt, then ran diskpart, but I never got the command prompt. It just shows

X:\Sources>diskpart

Microsoft Diskpart version 6.1.7601
Copyright <C> 1999-2008 Microsoft Corporation.
On computer: MINWINPC

But the DISKPART> prompt never shows up, just a blinking cursor.

I tried chkdsk C: and get "The type of the file system is NTFS." and nothing but a blinking cursor below it.

Anyway any info or ideas of where I can go from here would be appreciated.

RELEVANCY SCORE 52.4

I have been trying to install Windows XP onto a Acer 1642 Laptop for a while know and there has always been errors when copying files i will go into depth now the laptops history.

In the past this laptop failed to reformat the harddrive no matter what condition the harddrive is in so i came to the conclusion there was a problem with the northbridge chipset as after doing memory test's and reseting the bios still no errors with showing in the components.

I have tried to go around this by purchasing a 2.5 inch IDE laptop caddie and removed the orginal hard drive and plug it via usb so i could possibly install xp on the laptop with a removable drive instead.
I have tried multiple discs and multiple versions of xp with the SP3 failing at 33% with the error of unable to copy the file spnike.dll and on SP1 failing to copy lprmonui.dll at 29% on the install.

If anyone could sheld some light on this laptop and what could fix it be much appriecated :D
I think that maybe the laptops CD drive could be faulty, i have experience with computers and laptop hardware and software repairs and studing computer networking so i am not a noob and are abit stuck, thank you for your help :P

I think you could be right.

One way to determine whether or not the CD drive is at fault is to try burning a Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu, on to a disc and install it.

If it fails to install via the CD, try installing it again from a USB pen.
Instructions on how to put Linux on to a USB pen can be found here:
Universal USB Installer ? Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux

If it successfully installs from the USB pen then your CD drive is faulty and you will need to replace it if you want to install Windows XP.
If not then your CD drive is probably fine and something else is at fault.

Note: Apparently there is a way to get Windows XP to install from a USB pen but I haven't tried this myself and most online guides look pretty complicated. Unless your up to the challenge I would stick to testing Linux from USB which is a lot simpler.
