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. Fps is decreasing while playing games when the gpu heat reaches the 62C. And gpu heat cannot be higher because i think its locked. Lots of people asked this question in here but no one give a proper solution. We all know that is locked on bios. Can you fix this. Because we can't play games properly.

 Hi, i have another problem - when i playing games, sometimes my FPS just dropping instantly from 80 to 20 for about 15 sec and then back to 80 FPS. My system - Ideapad 510-15ISK: Core I5 6200U, 8Gb RAM, Nvidia 940MX, 1Tb HDD. First i thouth it was just because of intence effects in some scenes. But then i mentioned it happens in static scenes too (after long time playing). Then i start digging and using GPU-Z and monitor sensors. Here's a screenshot from one of this moments:?I have 23C degrees in my room, so its not even hottest day, laptop just standing in wooden table, anything that might affect how the ventilation works. I installed all latest drivers from Lenovo site. As you can see throttling downed GPU and memory clock to 405 mhz and this throttling appears in very heavy scenes (btw i'm playing World of Warcraft which is not a very heavy game). In the regular situation after 30 min playing GPU core working on 875 mhz and memory on 800 mhz. Its a bit different from demand clocks (GPU - 1122mhz(boost - 1242) and 900mhz memory clock).?  Also i noticed GPU temperature never increase more then 62C and seems like this throttling locked on this temperature. I looked for another laptop reviews and noticed that almost in every notebook Nvidia GPU core heated even to 80-90C and this is a normal situation. Is there anyway how i can solve this problem ? Thank you.

Hello Lenovo.I'm writing on forum, as many has done before, but nothing is changing. I own ideapad 510ISK with GT 940MX dedicated GPU. The problem is that the throttling of GPU starts at 61 Celsius degrees, GPU clocks go to ~450Mhz, FPS in most games drop from about 60 to 20 FPS.I write this, but i see that many people has written about this on forum, and no, its not a Power Manager problem or not selecting High Performance GPU in NVIDIA Control Panel.Using NVIDIA Inspector i can clearly see that GPU Throttle temperature is locked at 61 degrees and nothing can change it, which is absolute absurd, because doing anything GPU-heavy will cause this temperature - resulting huge performance drop.So, i'll go to the point. Is there any possible way to solve this problem? On NVIDIA forums they told me to contant manufacturer, so i'm doing this. Is there any possible way to obtain VGA BIOS to edit throttling temp and flash it on my notebook?Regards.

While playing GPU intensive games I had the feeling that the laptop does not reach its full capabilities.Even while using the recommended GPU settings by NVIDIA for the respective game, the games felt a bit sluggish.So I ran some benchmarks using the program Furmark. It looks like the laptop is programmed to throttle the GPU once the temperature reaches 65-67 C.Can this be possible? This kinda sucks. I didn't pay for high end hardware just to have it throttled by my system's BIOS or whatever causes this.Moreover the fans don't always seem to run at full capacity before the temperature throttling kicks in.It also does not seem possible to control or monitor the fan speed by a third party program like MSI Afterburner. If this is supposed to be a laptop for gamers it kind of missed the mark here.

A:Ideapad Y700 15ISK - GPU throttling by temperature...

Make sure you don't have any power saving features turned on, I know Lenovo has a bunch of Power Management software installed by default. Are you using "Power Saver" power plan in Windows by any chance? I can max out the overclock in Afterburner and game for hours on end at 1337 MHz core, so I'm not having any throttling issues. However I did do a clean install of Windows so I have no Lenovo software running on mine.

Hi, I've been experiencing this throttling issue for the past month now ( I've had this laptop since January). The fps drop from 170 to 60 for a couple of seconds and go back up to the initial value. I've had this issue a couple of times before but it would fix itself after restart (usually had it when I wake the laptop from sleep and immediately load CS:GO).  Now, I notice that this happens everytime I start playing and the temp goes above 69 degrees - I used to play with 170-200fps before with GPU temps surpassing 80 degrees with no fps drops at all.  This is really frustrating, especially when knowing that my brother has no FPS drops using my 5 year old Lenovo Y570 with  geforce GT 555m...Is there any way to fix this? I mean the gaming experience, as stated above was fine until a week ago, when I started getting these FPS drops, so that means that this issue can actually be fixed. Specs are Intel Core i7-6700HQGTX960M 4GB12 GB DDR4256GB SSD  ( CS:GO is on the SSD if that matters)I use Speedfan to check the temps. CS:GO is using the nvidia gpu, and the gpu is se to performance, power saving is disabled i am using balanced performance and set all advanced settings to maximum performance.

In Lenovo vantage you can turn on "Conservation mode".  See below.  It talks about Lenovo settings.  BUT same feature is in Vantage.  It will keep battery at 55-60%.  SO for example if currently its at 90% it will not charge.

Hello Lenovo Community!  I'm a proud owner of a Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK. I like this laptop alot, even though I only got it a week ago. There is a problem, however. My touchpad is "jumping" at specific time intervals (approx. at a 3 second interval). The "lag" doesn't last more than 0.5 milliseconds, but it's really, really annoying. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling the Synaptics touchpad drivers (I use Windows 10). I tried the ones from Lenovo Support, then the generic ones. I also tried disabling PalmCheck. It didn't work. I tried disabling Realtek Audio Manager, as some people on these forums had a problem with the audio driver causing some kind of conflict, on other laptop models. But that did not work either. Then I installed Ubuntu, and the problem still persisted. I have this annoying touchpad problem even in boot menus! (like Windows/Ubuntu menus, before installing the OS).I opened up a program, which is incorporated into the Synaptics Driver on Windows, called MoodPad, which basically draws a line when you swipe your finger across the touchpad surface. I noticed there are gaps inbetween. I posted some photos to make things more clear. The intervals are fixed, no matter if you swipe the finger across or not. For instance, if you happen to swipe it 2 seconds after the previous "lag" had occured, the next one will occur after 1 second (there is a 3 second interval, as I said before), and so on. Here are the photos from MoodPad.

I just got my Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk on the mail today, bought it with freedos (I already have a retail w10 license I want to transfer to it). Last night I prepared my bootable w10 usb and tested it on my old laptop to verify it works. No problem. I can't get it to work on the Lenovo, no matter what Bios settings I choose. I don't really mind if it's UEFI or Legacy at this point, I'm reinstalling next week when I get my new ssd disk, I just want to be able to get windows in for now. My usb stick is formatted as fat32, with windows 10 64-bit, I got the ISO using the media creation tool from Microsoft, and put it into the usb with rufus. At first, I was getting a winload.efi error (with either uefi, legacy, legacy first, uefi first and all variations you can think of). I redid the usb, this time just mounting the ISO file and copying the files manually. Now I'm getting winload.exe file might be damaged or missing. The mystifying thing is that the installer boots just fine on my old asus laptop. It's been years since the last time I did this, so I'm probably missing something obvious. Can anybody guide me on how to get the windows install screen to come up on this machine? Thank you in advance.

Hello guys!I had a problem with this laptop and support center replaced MB. After replacement everything is working fine except there is no serial number and MTM programmed in BIOS (it just says INVALID). So, LSB and similar tools can not read serial number and take me to support page. I have SN and MTM written on the back, but I want them to be programmed in the BIOS. Support center told me they don't know how to do it and to ask Lenovo. So, here I am - asking  I flashed latest E5CN61WW BIOS version and I see there is WinFlash64.exe tool that came with BIOS. I'm pretty sure this tool can program serial number, but I'm not sure which option to use and how. There are many of them when I use WinFlash64 -help switch: dak, dss, dpm, dps, dvs and many, many more... Attached to this post you can see help output. So, what is the correct command sequence to write serial number and MTM? Thank you!

A:Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK Won't boot up

If that is a recent photo of you laptop in the BIOS, then that is a very good indication that the error is probably NOT hardware related, so sending it in to Lenovo would likely not resolve your problem.     Furthermore, the error you are seeing displayed is coming from the Window Operating system, and indicates that some important system files needed for Windows to start up properly are either missing or corrupted.     Typically such errors are not fatal, and can repaired or restored fairly easily by running Startup Repair, System Restore or running other recovery tools from within Window's Recovery Environment.  The last resort would be to backup any data you have stored on the SSD, and then Reset Windows to the default state or resetting the system to the factory default sate, all of which your IT person should be able to do. The error message usually would contain more information than just "Recovery  Your PLC needs to be repaired", so any additional 0x00000??? error codes or information you can provide would help direct you in the right direction.  Best of Luck,

My battery seems to charge very slowly when connected to AC and when I unplug I lose power in less than 20 minutes and the diagnostic says battery is in "Fair" condition and only charging at 41.38% of its original full charge capacity.  When I called customer service since I am still under warranty, they just said I could send in the laptop for repair which takes about 7 business days or go to a Best Buy for the GeekSquad to repair.  I went to Best Buy, but the Geek Squad said they would have to send it off for 13 days so none of this was helpful as this is my only laptop and I need it daily so to send it off for 7 business days would be difficult.  Are there any other options for repair that reduce the time significantly?  I can't believe Lenovo doesn't offer overnight shipping to expedite the process

Since I opened the box I have had problems with this laptop.  I have seen a lot of people posting issues relating to the video card error - Lenovo has posted a driver solution for some models, but it has not fixed mine yet.  Aside from this error and the diagnostic failing, apps are constantly crashing, screen flashing non-stop on certain websites or doing certain functions, screen blackout, etc.  Hoping this is all related to the video card error and not some additional problem.  Anyone else having these problems?  Any timeline on the fix?  I have been trying to be patient but it's getting increasingly frustrating... especially with a $1000 brand new laptop...
