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.)

Can I install Ubuntu on my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 370

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

I have recently purchased lenovo thinkpad x1 yoga from Germany. I have tried to install different versions of linux ubuntu in dual boot, but none of them seems to work. It boots from the bootable usb and gives the live ubuntu and install ubuntu options but when you enter then it displays a blank screen and nothing happens afterwards. I am facing another issue pretty consistently that the touch screen becomes unresponsive most of the times. When i use the pen it works fine but it does not works with my fingers. Looking forward to some solution as its pretty annoying experiencing such bugs in such an expensive machine. Thanks

Not sure why posts asking about installing an OS other than Windows 10 on this device seem to vanish but here goes my attempt for a Linux Specific question. I am unwilling to run Windows 10 because an OS that without any advance notice will uninstall your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those packages is a required driver is unacceptable to me. Due to the aforementioned issues with Windows 10 I am looking to Linux as an alternative for this device. Are there any known Linux Distributions that will fully support the hardware?Does anyone have experience installing Linux and configuring it on this device?What Linux Distribution is most recommended for this device?What additional drivers or software are recommended on Linux to be able to use the hardware to the fullest? Thanks.

So here is the situation.I've got this great piece of hardware bound to a cruddy OS that no sane person should ever trust (an OS that uninstalls your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those software packages is a driver, without any advance notice).  Sane reasonable people should never accept that as business as usual or acceptable.  Thus Windows 10 is unacceptable. Options:Windows 7 Downgrade (legally valid per the Windows 10 Pro license agreement):Issues for Windows 7 Pro install:No MediaNo License to enter even if one had media (none provided even though Windows 7 Downgrade is a supported item for Windows 10)CPU Support requires a hack to remove the FAKE incompatibility check MSFT put into Windows Update and Windows 7 to disallow usage on newer CPUs.  There are guides on how to disable this manually and have Windows 7 with Windows Updates work so not a real issue.  -- Pretty sleazy move on MSFT's part to disable Windows Update for Windows 7 useers running new CPUs on valid legally licensed copies (per MSFT's own agreements) to force Windows 10 usage. Linux:Install issues for Linux:Which Linux brand and version to use?Will all the features be fully supported? Sadly I cannot even begin to work on any of this due to:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Recovery-media-downloa...

As the current BIOS stands, OS installers - for me specifically, Fedora Workstation - can't see any internal drives. I've read that this is an issue that can be solved easilly with an update to the BIOS, hopefully lenovo will realize how silly this is and fix it.   Until Lenovo makes a change, no linux based OS can be used with this laptop.

Hi, I recently purchased the Lenovo Yoga 330-11IGM and I would like to install Linux because of work. Created a Ubuntu USB Live Stick, tested it in my previous laptop, disabled secure boot and fast boot, enter bios, set boot priority and ready to go. After setting the boot priority, the laptop restarts and when it's going to show the UEFI Ubuntu Menu just like how it's supposed to be, it's not. All I got was a Lenovo logo, and an underscore cursor in the top-left edge of the screen. Tried typing something, didn't work. I thought this was probably because of BIOS mode, so I thought I can change it to Legacy. But guess what? Only UEFI is available.  Can somebody helped me through this because my work is relying on Linux, and I hate how Windows Subsystem Linux behave. Thank you

Hi everyone,I create this topic today with a recent purchase of Lenovo Yoga 730 13IKB,I'm hving a issue with main ltters in my keyboard (with AZERTY)Most of letters in AZERTYUIOP (1st layer of letters ONLY) is not responding, i must let press or press lot of time to write these letters, it's weird because it's in a frequency of responding/not responding (sometimes it's very long and sometimes normal and responding fast). This issue is present on Xubuntu 18.10 and Windows 10.I disabled keyboard functions on the bios but it isn't this functionnality that makes lag.So I think it since I made the latest bios update, I was on IDE Sata Mode and the Bios update changed it to AHCI sata mode.It's maybe that is making issue.It's a big problem because i need to write fast in my job. So what I can do ?

Hello everyone, I hope I'll be able to find some help here. I'm looking for the M.2 details in both TPY 15 and TPY 460. Especially: 1. Is the M.2 NVMe supported in TPY 15?2. Is the M.2 NVMe supported in TPY 460?3. Can I use Samsung 950 Pro M.2 in TPY 15?4. Can I use Samsung 950 Pro M.2 in TPY 460? I'm also trying to make a final decision between 15 and 460 so I made a list of pros and cons:(+) Yoga 15 pros:- 15,6" screen- possibility to use both 2.5" SSD and M.2 SSD. I'm planning to use Samsung 850 EVO 500GB (data) + Samsung 950 Pro M.2 256GB (system) combo. Does it makes sense? Is it possible? I've seen on the Yoga documentation that Lenovo doesn't recommend using M.2 as the booting drive.- max 16GB of RAM- design, build quality etc..(-) Yoga 15 cons:- Not Skylake- No UHD screen- No DDR4- No pen(+) Yoga 460 pros:- Skylake!- WQHD (2560 x 1440) screen- active pen bay(-) Yoga 460 cons:- I'm not sure if both M.2 SSD and 2,5" SSD can be used. Can it? Is it possible to use Samsung 850 EVO 500GB (data) + Samsung 950 Pro M.2 256GB (system) combo?- only 14"- probably higher price- max 8GB RAM. I've heard 16GB works good too, is that true?- No DDR4. Really? How comes it's Skylake and still LPDDR3? Isn't it a huge performance step back?So... it's not an easy decision. Plus I've never seen either of the models in real. Basically what makes 460 better in my point of view is the Skylake platform and the WQHD screen. What about the build quality?

Hi
 
Maybe you can try updating some of the driver related to the Pen.
 
There is the Wintab Driver for Windows 10. Check if you need to update it.
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384
 
Other thing that also may help is doing some "trial and error" with other pen related software, link using Inkscape and configuring it with the pen just to try it out.
