Preferred Solution: What is WRONG with Lenovo ?!

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.)

Hi, everyone, I bought a p50 from lenovo outlet this past wednesday. The specifications include 4k screen and M.2 512G SSD. But, this Friday when I received the laptop, I found it was only equipped with standard screen(1920*1080) and 500G HDD. This is totally not what I wanted. So, I want to ask if any of you has this simiar experience. My question is:if I request a returning for exchange, lenovo will refuse my request and give me the full refund since this specification is not on sale in lenovo outlet? or lenovo will try to assessmble an alternative one for me and diliver to me?   appreciate any ansnwers in advance!

Hi users,  I am facing problem with my last row of keyboard and the numeric row.When i press zxcvbnm,./ following comes 1z2x3c4v5b6n7m9,0.-/ Please help me to fix this problem i have tried installing OS again. Tried changing the language also nothing worked.

A:Lenovo Y50 Keyboard Wrong Behaviour

Hi AnkurSharma,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Try connecting an external USB keyboard and test the same keys (zxcvbnm).
Another alternative to isolating if such is a Windows issue or a hardware keyboard problem is booting the machine using a live media image similar to this.
 
If the same issue with another boot image and likewise fine using an external USB keyboard then it is probable that there is an issue with the keyboard itself. You may try reseating the cable and cleaning but if still, the same, replacement may be proper.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards

Greetings!I have a Lenovo G50-70 notebook it worked fine so far, but recently I got some UEFI related treat warnings from my antivirus scanner. I'm not sure if its a falsepositive or not since I'm extremely paranoid about security and always make extra precautions to avoid nasty stuff getting on my computers, but just to be safe I wanted to reflash my BIOS.However when I head to this official download page: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS100522The BIOS update related cheksums are all wrong for me. The file I download has a completely different set. I would be very greatful, if someone could look into this for me. I don't want to end up with a corrupt or tainted update file during the flashing process.Thank you very much in advance and have a nice day!

It's sad I've had to resort to the forums to try to get more light on this situation. It's absolutely atrocious what has occurred in this exchange between myself and Lenovo. On a model# 80E502XRCF the hard drive dies. The laptop is under warranty. The laptop is sent away for repair where they replace the hard drive. Should have been a piece of cake. Laptop comes back and has Windows 8 on it instead of Windows 10. To further this, Windows 8 isn't activated and will likely stop working in a couple days. Call Lenovo, they want me to pay for the factory recovery media to put Windows 10 back on. I refuse as this is Lenovo's problem. They blame the depot even though it's Lenovo's responsibility to manage the relationship with their authorized retailers. So now Lenovo won't help me and neither will the depot. Stellar service as always Lenovo. Stellar. Anyone have any suggestions short of throwing an in warranty laptop in the garbage and buying a different brand?

I was trying to install Windows 7 ultimate on a Lenovo b570 that had Windows 7 Home Premium, I Gparted the drive to all unallocated, and started the W7 install, at 57%, it hangs for three hours, I take the disc out, notice fingerprints, used a CD cleaner, and cleaned it, I put the CD back in, waited for it to spin up, before hitting "try again" with the "No disc in the drive message" after hitting "try again", instead of it continuing like normal, it kept saying "The wrong volume is in the drive" despite putting the SAME disc in. No matter how many time I try to click, "try again", I get the same "The wrong volume is in the drive" message. If I hit "continue" I get a "Windows was unable to complete the installation" the computer restarts, but now I get a "Bootmgr is missing" Won't even boot to CD, not even Gparted again!
 
Any ideas on a fix on these various problems with installation?

Hi. Is booting from a USB flash drive an option? It would be a lot more reliable, faster and one could even inject all current updates to the install wim file (a little over 7GB to date).
Just create the bootable drive
Extract the image to the root of the drive
Boot from drive and install
 
If all USB ports are 3.0 or better... one may have to configure BIOS to enable legacy and use a USB 2.0 drive as there may arise a driver issue when trying to install. One may pybass these errors by also including the secure boot option to Windows 7 installer.

Hi,I have Lenovo y700-15isk, Win 10.The problem: Suddenly the keyboard began behaving weird. Some keys perform different actions than expected.For example, when I press 5 from Num pad, it shows 5 but also activates "options" key (between left Ctr and left Alt).When i hit - (minus from Num pad) it opens Start menu. Strangely, the Win key does not work and does not open Start menu and sometimes instead shows a minus (-).When i hit + from Num pad, the cursor immeadiately goes to the top of the page and then adds the + symbol.When i press 2 from Numpad the cursor goes to the bottom of the page and then adds 2.It is as if the NumLock is on and off at the same time making the keys perform double action.In short, the problem seems to be in the Num pad keys (with the Win key exception).I tried changing languages, layouts, safe mode, holding power key for 10 seconds, restarting... nothing changed.Please, guys, this is very frustrating, can you help me with this? Anyone had something like this?

Any way little did I know that I was in the think pad department and I have an idea pad Y570 0862 any way I explained to them in detail what my system was and they still sent me the recovery disk for the wrong machine. so I did the install not knowing it was for a think pad and now realize that there are things missing plus it is supposed to be win 7 64gb and the baseband drivers are not installed and I can't get them installed. well they won't transfer the warranty from one department to the other and say that I cannot get an extended warranty through the right department because it shows there that it is expired any way I have installed the drivers that are ment for my system to the best of my ability but I'm sure there are drivers installed for the wrong system and if I run test every thing says it is OK but I'm not sure I trust that plus I have a 32gb win 7 installed when I should have 64gb and I cannot find my blue ray info in device manager it just appears that I'm stuck unless I fork out more money for there mistake and I just don't know where to go from here or what to do!

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

To all -

My first post in this forum, but I've been around the block a few times building my own machines (and for others), but a month ago i ended up springing for a dell xps 8300 desktop b.c i got a great deal on a scratch and dent system with an i7-2600 processor, 1.5tb drive, and an ATI 5770 1gb graphics card.
So long story short I've added one component and upgraded one existing component. The first was adding an SSD drive to the mix, which worked out wonderfully (i boot from power off to desktop in 13 seconds). Very pleased.
The second seemed to be just as successful...I replaced the stock PSU (460watts) with an Antec 650watt continuous power PSU (certified and all). Reconnected all the cables, crossed my fingers, turned on the power supply...got the green light on the motherboard so turned on the computer and all was fantastic!!!
The catch is..........I didn't notice until hours later i'd not heard a sound from the computer in quite some time. Tested by playing a few songs and nothing.

Here's where i got lost. In the "playback devices" (right clicking on the audio icon in the task manager tray) it shows the music playing (as in the levels are bouncing up and down).

Hi everybody,
since friday we have a strange problem with some clients and ARP answers. We notice that our switch recognize wrong MAC addresses on some ports.
We use wireshark to see what happens and we get the following:

Wireshark runs on client 1 (172.30.71.6, promiscuous mod off)
Client 5 (172.30.59.1) send a broadcast arp question (who has 172.30.41.1 - tell 172.30.59.1) and client 1 (172.30.71.6) is sending ARP replies with src = XX:XX:XX: 38:d1:a8.

172.30.41.1 (XX:XX:XX:38:d1:a8) is offline (network cable removed) and 172.30.71.6 has no entry of 172.30.41.1 (XX:XX:XX:38:d1:a8) in his arp cache.
The clients run Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
Why we get these phenomenon and how can we solve it? Is there maybe a problem with some updates of the last patchday? 

Thanks for the reply and kind regards

Situation 1

Hello. I had “music store card” [gift card] that I received as a birthday gift lying around so I figured let me it out. Anyway, I purchased 3 songs from iTunes.com. Attempted to burn them. It didn’t work I got some sort of write error on the CD.

While in main screen I clicked Edit > Preferences > Advance > Burning: Discovered that the settings were set to burn an Audio CD. However, I was using a Data CD. Is this why it didn’t work? Last I read up it should have worked. The disk was a CD-R Memorex Cool Color CD-R. This shouldn’t have proven to be a problem right?

This disk can’t be played in Xbox (original not Xbox 360).

Situation 2
-------------
In another situation I tried burning a copy of and an mp3-to-Audio-CD.

When copying the Audio-CD I was using Nero Burn Ultra Edition 6.6.1.4. Got the error message saying along the lines of “write fail, unable to finish end session.” Same thing happened when I was trying to make an mp3-to-Audio-CD, except I was using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 10.0.

This disk can’t be played in Xbox (original not Xbox 360).

So what am I doing wrong? Here are my objectives:

1) Want to burn audio CDs that will play in cars, stereo systems, DVD players, Xbox, and Xbox360 – when I get it . If I keep purchasing music from iTunes.com, this may prove difficult?

Hi,I have spent a lot of time looking for a laptop which could meet my requirements. A week ago I bought this laptop and I love it, BUT the screen is giving me painful eyes just after like 30 minutes. I tried during the day, in the evening, to simulate different lightning conditions, tried to update BIOS and all drivers, playing with brighness, color setup, ... the same result. My girlfriend initially said that it can be it's only my perception, but then she tried to use it and got eye pain after like 30 minutes. I'm a programmer and she is a graphic designer, so we are used to spend like 10 hours a day in average behind a laptop, but we never get such a pain, as from this one, after like 30 mins. I tried to check if the laptop has PWM flickering. I tried to record the screen with my phone, and compare it to my older work laptop (Lenovo T520), which I never get an eye pain or headache from. The recording revealed a lot of backlight flickering on my old work laptop (like when you display a page with Google results, there were a lot of horizontal lines moving vertically over white google background), but not really on my new one. When I look very detailed at the video from the new laptop, I can maybe see like a tiny flickering on the font displaying google results, but nothing in the background white). So why would this new laptop give us immediately such a headache? Resolution, size of the fonts are eqactly the same as the old laptop sitting next to it.... Anyone can... Read more

(also posted in the X forum) I made this thread on reddit, I just wanted to inform the community here: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/btj4i1/anyone_else_have_a_lense30256gmsp34meat3ta_i/ Looks like I also have the intermittent freezing/hang hardware issue a lot of people have run across. I am 97% sure this is due to the Lenovo branded SSD. Basically, the entire computer freezes or hangs for a few seconds, randomly. Nothing in event viewer. I can replicate this problem when downloading files. I've also made a video showing the problem. If your T and X series thinkpad are displaying these symptoms, see if you have a Lenovo brand SSD.

Hi everyone, I'd like to introduce myself with my very first post in this community.So, I'd like to upgrade my Lenovo B590 (I know it's an old one ).Currently my specs are: - Intel Celeron 1005M 1,90GHz; 8 Gb DDR3 Ram (which i perfectly upgraded); 450 Gb HDD and Windows 10 - 64x and this mainboard Socket 988B rPGA (G2 if I am correct). Thanks to this forum an other posts like this one: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/B590-Processor-Upgrade/td-p/1948989 I could figure out more like for e.g. which CPU's are compatible. So my question is I actually found on ebay an Intel Core i5 Mobile CPU Socket G2 PGA 988 with the following FRU 40W0492, but on the Lenovo Maintenance Manual the FRU of the i5 is completey different (102001067). So is my laptop with this CPU incompatible 100%? Aren't FRU numbers supposed to have 7 numbers with letters? Or am I wrong? Thank you in advance and sorry for my english I haven't talked it for 3 years or so.

Hey folks,
 
Got an M93 with Win 10. Lenovo solution center asks to do upgrades on BIOS and a bunch of drivers. Did that, and now I can't boot the computer. 
 
Tried pressing F1 after pressing start button, no help. Can't enter BIOS, still stuck at lenovo screen. Also tried Ctrl+Alt+Del on that screen, blacks out then stuck at lenovo screen again. 
 
Please help and inform, thanks!!!

A:ThinkCentre: Stuck at Lenovo splash screen after lenovo solution bios upgrade

I would try resetting the BIOS using the jumper, or by taking out the CMOS battery, wait a minute or two, and then replace it and try booting up. See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manaul linked below for location of the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper (# 20) https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf Clearing the CMOS (BIOS)1. Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer. 2. Remove the computer cover. 3. Locate the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper on the system board. 4. Move the jumper from the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2) to the maintenance position (pin 2 and pin 3). 5. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. 6. Turn on the computer and leave it on for approximately 10 seconds. Then, turn off the computer by holding the power switch for approximately five seconds. 7. Repeat step 1 through step 2. 8. Move the Clear CMOS /Recovery jumper back to the standard position (pin 1 and pin 2). 9. Reinstall the computer cover and connect the power cord. Good Luck,
