Hi everyone! I apologize if this is not a relevant post but i notice a problem with my i7 7700HQ. I guess processor can reach at 100 percent load 2.8GHz or (2.79GHz), but my cant do that.I tried many stress tests and cpu cant reach that clocks, even 100 percent load cant be reached.My toughts is power limit issues but iam not sure. Temperatures are fine, no thermal throttle, fans didnt go on full speed ever. I appreciate every help, any solution and iam sorry about my english.If you want i can later post photos from stress test or temperatures. My laptop is Lenovo Legion Y720.

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.)

Hello, I have had the following happen to 2 different Lenovo Legion Y530 laptops in the last week.For the first laptop it was accidentally allowed to run down to zero.For the second laptop it was intentially run down to zero to try to recreate this problem.  Unfortunately it succeeded.Here are the steps:Laptop runs down to zero and shuts off.  When plugged in, on power on, states laptop was not powered down normally and then brings up Recovery screen (blue screen).  Claims missing or errors in iaStorAC.sys.  The first laptop problem claimed HAL.dll was missing or corrupt.From the blue screen, most options lead back to this recovery screen.  Only the BIOS options goes elsewhere. From the novo button, I've tried:- System Recovery - appears to work but returns to Recovery screen.- Restore from Restore point (after booting from USB) - claims it works (after some hd repair) and then returns to Recovery screen.- From command line, repairing the boot config data (ran into permission errors on some commands) - no success. I called Lenovo support and after verifying that the harddrive was still recognized by the bios, had me attempt System Recovery from the novo menu.  When that failed, claimed it was a hardware issue and needed to be sent in for repair.  Seems unlikely it would be the same hardware problem on 2 separate laptops.  It seems related to the power down corrupting the boot files. From the recent reviews at Bestbuy...

Lenovo Legion Legion Y520  running windows 10 I am connected to a Sony TV by HDMI.  When I use the TV as the only display or as an extended display the image is downscaled to 720p.  If I clone the display from my laptop it will render full 1080p. All of the settings I can find appear to be correct.  The laptop says that it is displaying 1920x1080.  I would like to get the TV to work as primary display.  I know it is not the TV.  It can display the cloned desktop and works properly for game consoles also using HDMI.  I have tried using different HDMI ports on the TV.

Hello, I own a Lenovo Legion Y520 (the one with 2tb HDD) and I would like to add an SSD to it as well. From what I've read, if I want to keep my HDD and add an SSD, I will need an M.2 type SSD. Also, I have found an SSD that I think would be compatible with my Y520, but I wanted to ask here before buying it. The SSD I'm talking about it the SSD WD Black 256GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 2280. I will also attach a picture of it, so if anyone could tell me if it's compatible, I'll be very thankful.This is the one

Dear Lenovo community,I am considering an ssd upgrade. I know that my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN) supports m.2 NVMe gen 3.0 x4, but is it compatible with gen 3.0 x2? I found some good deals, they are actually about half the price of an x4 ssd ...Also, what length does it support? I found a link for the ssd that comes in it (in higher configurations), so is that the maximum length?Thanks in advance for your reply.

Do you guys think it meets all the requirements for playing games, new games especially like assassin's creed odyssey? I'm no real expert when it comes to these kind of things .

Hi everyone, I come here in a last hope, I order the legion y530 with the 1060gtx two months ago and it suddenly frooze in a middle of a game and shut down, now each time I try to boot it, it light up and go back to sleep and does this idefenetly. I know I have a warranty but I bought the product in Switzerland and I'm travelling trough Asia, I could repair it in Bangkok but I'm leaving the city for Tokyo in less than 10days so it's impossible to fix it in time, is there a way to repair in in Tokyo in less than a month and by only speaking English? I'm really disappointed by this product and if I could I would defentely get a refund, but I'm pretty sure it's impossible. Oh and have I said my work depend on it? Yhea this laptop put me in a terrible position. I hope there is a easy and quick solution.  Cheers guys

Hello,First of all let me apologies if I'm posting this In the wrong place. I'm new to the forums .2 months ago I bought a lenoo legion laptop, and 3 days ago my apartment was robbed. I already have contacted the police and given them the information from the laptops original box. I have some questions  if anyone can help out or a Lenovo representative . The police wanted the Mac address of my card , can I obtain it from Lenovo by providing my laptop information?Also I've read in Google ( may be wrong ) that Lenovo can blacklist/lock in some way your laptop if it's stolen. I tried calling the number provided for my country but they told me they are only dealing with the warranty .I know that the chance of the police locating it is low, but I want to try and help. I also heard that your ISP can give you your Mac address , but I'm being a little suspicious of them .  So to keep this short, if anyone can help in any way , it'll be appreciated alot!

Hello all. I am about to buy the Legion Y520-15IKBN. It's the i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060  version. I have 2 questions though before I buy it.  1. I have a Seagate Barracuda 5TB 2,5" HDD, a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 500GB and a HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4-2400 laptop RAM. Can I install them on this model or if I open it it will void the warranty?  2. The laptop comes with no OS. I have Windows 10 on my desktop PC. Since Windows are connected to the Outlook account (I think), will I be able to install and activate them on the laptop or I have to buy new? Thank you very much for any answers
