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.)

 I am using a Lenovo Laptop G400s touch that came with Windows 8 preinstalled. Yesterday I updated it to Windows 10 and after that whenever I boot my pc to desktop I get an error message saying that "Unable to start the Dolby audio driver". I tried below thread but I couldn't find audio driver for G400s.

Hi iyyappan_3,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
First make sure that the Audio driver and the dolby will be in sync.
Open Device Manager 
    Uninstall the Audio Device Under Sound and gaming controllers / Make sure to place a check in the Delete driver software prompt.
           
Now make sure you don't have any dolby components
    Proceed to Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall a Program
                     Uninstall all Dolby Related programs
                             Restart if Prompted
Now install this software driver
 
 https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/audio142w81.exe
When you install this software it will show you a directory path whre it will extract, Make sure to Remember the path
 
This next xtep is important

Open the directory path where the Audio driver installer extracted the Audio driver.

Check all the folders inside it and find the Dolby Installers, Install the Dolby either Advanced audio or Digital plus.
 
ANd you should now get your dolby back
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

hi rahul1971,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If booting in Safe Mode gives you the same keyboard keys not responding then the problem is likely with the keyboard itself (or the keyboard ribbon). In this case, a replacement is necessary. I would recommend you contact lenovo and report the problem as you may need to send the unit for service.

Hello, We are finding that the Lenovo M625q with the AMD E2-9000e Processor will not clock higher then 800mhz and utilize only a single core when inserted into a ThinkCentre TIO 21.5" Touch Monitor.  Taking the M625 out, it works fine.  We have tried: 1. Loading our corporate image2. Loading stock Windows 10 Pro3. Reset Bios to optimized defaults4. Updated to latest published BIOS and drivers We have also ensured that the power profile in windows is set to Maximum performance with CPU set to use 100% while plugged in. Turning off the PC, removing it from the TIO and running in stand alone (Connected to external monitor) the M625 works properly clocking up to 1.8ghz and utilizing both cores. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am upgrading a Lenovo G550 that I purchased a few years ago for my wife. So far I was able to install 8GB or RAM and a 500GB HDD with no issues. However when I tried to upgrade the processor, the laptop would not power up. It will turn on and the lights will indicate that the HDD is on and the battery is on, but I do not get the Lenovo splash screen. I hear my fan going but nothing happens. Only a black screen. I purchased an Intel Core 2 Duo processor P7550 (2.26GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 3MB L2 Cache) based on the speciation sheet below. I was wondering if anyone might know where I could find any documentation that specifically lists what CPUs are compatible with the Lenovo G550. Ideally I'd like to install the best processor it will take. Thank you.http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/notebooks/Essential/G-Series/G550%20Datasheet.pdf

A:Lenovo G550 processor upgrade

hi gbueno832,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The P7550 CPU that you purchased, was that taken out from another Lenovo G550 machine? If no then this is likely the problem as only specific processor FRU's are allowed in the BIOS (whitelist).
 
In addition, is your G550 model (e.g., 2958-3BU) listed in this pdt datasheet?
 
I've looked into the specs and the G550 model uses either an Intel PM45, Intel GM45, or an Intel GL40 chipset and a compatible CPU for an upgrade will be dependent on these chipset. To check what chipset you have, you will need to put back the original CPU and use tools utility tools like HWINFO.

A:Processor upgrade for Lenovo V570

hi razvyslim,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Your problem might be similar to this thread.
 
From page 77-78 of the hardware maintenance manual (HMM), the V570 can take up to:
 
Intel I7-2820QM 2.30G 8M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001055Intel I7-2720QM 2.20G 6M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001071Intel I7-2630QM 2.0G 6M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001070Intel I7-2620M 2.7G 4M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001069Intel I5-2540M 2.6G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001068Intel I5-2520M 2.5G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001067Intel I5-2410M 2.3G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001066Intel I3-2310M 2.1G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001065
 
Since you have a dual core CPU, the Intel I7-2620M should be the highest CPU that your motherboard can take.
 
The Quad Core CPUs (I7-2630QM, I7-2720QM, and I7-2820QM) uses a different motherboard (see page 77 of the HMM) so I wouldn't try these CPUs as they're unlikely compatible to your motherboard or worse, may end up frying your board due to the heat that these CPUs are producing.
