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 let it die for the first time last night after having it for about 7 months. Today I've plugged it in and it's turned on but it's not charging. It says "0% available (plugged in, charging)". It's working perfectly fine despite all of this, but only because it's plugged in. If I unplug the charger, it's dead. Please help.

Hi there, My daughter has an IdeaPad 110s-11IBR and the power adapter has become problematic.  In order to charge the device, she has to force the plug into the laptop until the charging light comes on and then hold it there.  I cannot tell if it is the charger or the port that is the issue.  I have no problem with purchasing a new charger, but I don't want to do so until I know that it is this that needs to be changed.  Does anyone know whether this is a common problem and/or what to do about it.  It is still under warrenty, but the Lenovo website, seems to indicate that they would not consider it a warrenty issue as it would be classed as damage. Matt

The touchpad stopped working a few weeks back, thought it might fix itself so I've left it and been using a mouse through the USB. Then that was playing up so decided to look for a solution to the touchpad issue... Read on here about it being the driver, so I updated that through the website but then whenever the touchpad was touched, the laptop would go to a blue screen with the stop code: KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED and then 'What failed: ETD.sys I have now done something so that this doesn't happen when the touchpad is used (not entirely sure what I did), so I'm not getting a blue screen, but it still doesn't work to move the pointer!! It says the driver is there and all uptodate when I look through the device manager.. Thank you!

On my Ideapad 320, the entire keyboard stopped working except some function keys at the top (brightness, volume, etc). An external keyboard works fine. I've tried suggestions on other posts about this, such as updating/uninstalling the keyboard driver, resetting BIOS/UEFI settings to default, enabling and disabling filter and sticky keys, and i've reset my computer more times than i can count. Nothing has worked. Sometimes, the Caps Lock light on the keyboard will turn on, and will occasionally turn off/on when i press the button a bunch (usually with a delay before it'll respond) The problem only started after i downloaded the game Overwatch today, but i tried uninstalling it to see if that'd help and it did nothing. I didn't spill anything on it, drop it, or even get crumbs in the keys. I've only had this laptop for almost 7 months. I'm at my wits end and can't find any other possible solutions to try. Please help.

I've been running this Z580 for a year or so, and updated to Windows 10 a couple of months ago. Both the laptop display and an external monitor (HPw1907 vga) have been working fine. The other day, the external monitor just stopped working.   I check the device manager and the Intel HD Graphics 4000 display adapter is disabled, due to a Code 43. I have tried rolling back to an earlier restore point, I've uninstalled and reinstalled several versions of the Intel graphics adapter, up through the current compatible one. The most recent display adapter driver from Intel is apparently not hardware compatible with this adapter. The funny thing, is that the driver wants to work! On booting, while the black and white Lenovo splash screen is displayed, with the little circular Windows logo circling around, I can move the cursor back and forth between monitors. As soon as the screen turns blue (I assume with Windows drivers loading) the external monitor blanks out and I'm back to one screen.  Based on that behavior, I'm wondering if it's not a display driver that is specfically the problem, since I've loaded up the latest drivers several times, but if maybe a recent Windows update has sneaked in a driver or component for something else that is causing the Intel driver to crash. Any thoughts?  Back in earlier versions of Windows, you could have the system load one component at a time during boot, so you could check for incompatibilities. So, if the... Read more

I know a few others have asked this question, but I haven't seen anyone report a solution or any follow-up to suggestions given. Here's what happened: my touch screen worked normally on Friday, then I went away for the weekend and didn't use my laptop and when I started working on Monday I realized my touch screen didn't work. Here's what I have done to try to fix it:1. Restarted the computer2. Disabled & enabled the HID-compliant touch screen in the Device Manager 3. Disabled & enabled the Generic PnP Monitor in the Device Manager4. Checked for driver updates for the touch screen (it said the most up-to-date driver is already installed)5. Tried to roll back the driver for the touch screen, but that button was greyed out, so it wasn't an option6. Unstalled the most recent Windows updates (there were a couple from the previous week)7. Unstalled the HID-compliant touch screen (but when I restarted the computer, there it was again)8. Talked to the IT guy for my work, who said I did everything he would have done, and suggested that I write a post on this forum. I saw a suggestion in another thread that the driver for the touch screen could be corrupted, but I didn't really see any instructions on how to unstall/reinstall the driver itself. I would like to try that if someone could tell me how that's done. Any other ideas? My Lenovo is probably 4-5 years old, Windows 10 for well over a year, installed a new anti-virus software a few months ago with no issues... Read more

Last night I ran into a problem concerning my ability to charge my laptop. After my laptop had restarted itself (probably because of a windows update) my battery was close to dying. But when I plugged in the adapter, sadly there was no sign of it actually charging my battery. Of course the first thing I did was check if all the cables were actually plugged in, which they were. I also checked the forums to see if anyone else had this problem and I tried unplugging the adapter, removing the battery and holding the power button for ~30 seconds. Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. Since my battery is nearly empty I cannot really try to install anything to help solve this problem, as has been suggested on this forum to other users. I wouldn't mind buying a new adapter, but since it so suddenly stopped working I'm wondering if the adapter is even the problem. I had been able to succesfully charge my battery only a few hours before this problem occured. Also I haven't noticed any sparks/smoke/anything that is a clear indicator that something isn't right, coming from the ac. I apologise if this question has been asked before. Any help would be kindly appreciated!

The touchscreen on my Flex 15 stopped working. I am not sure exactly when, but in the last few months.  I am already on Win10, and it has worked fine since the Win10 upgrade over a year ago.  In Device Manager, I can see the HID Touch Screen entry.  I tried uninstalling and deleting it, followed by a restart.  Reinstalled itself on start-up, but no joy.  It claims to be working.   I have seen other similar posts saying to delete entries under Mice... but I don't see any Touch Screen entries there.Interestingly, I see most of the drivers have Event dates of 2-Jul 2017, saying "Device migrated". I am suspecting some delightful Micorsoft "improvement" on that date may have been the cuplrit, but I also feel like the touch screen may have been working after that date.  Unfortunately, I don't use the touch screen very often, but I DO need it now and then. Thoughts?

This computer is not even a week old. When this first happened I saw that on the bottom side of the laptop were two switches, one for the battery and I guess one for the touch screen, by the way there is not literature on what so ever, and after flipping the switch the touch screen worked perfectly for about a day. Now it has stopped working again, but the switch is in the correct position. All of my drivers are up to date. I am so frustrated with this. the mouse works fine, it is just the touch screen. Please, someone tell me you have had a similar issue with this series of the ideapad and that you have been able to fix it, I really don't want to have to send it in as I use it everyday for work.

A:Ideapad s510p touch screen stopped working

Hi eking4044, welcome to the forum,
 
     Here is your user guide:
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_s410ps410ptouchs510ps510ptouch_ug_english.pd...
 
     Here is your HMM:
 
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_s410ps410ptouchs510ps510ptouch_hmm.pdf
 
     Both of those "switches" on the bottom are for the battery. One is a spring loaded switch to open battery, after you push the other one into the open position. This is how you remove the battery, and have nothing to do with the Touch Screen.
 
      Did you delete any of the software that came with your system? The easiest thing you could do is backup your user files to a CD, or some external hard drive, then reset your system using the system recovery. See page 20 of the user guide for the recovery routine. Make sure you have a backup of your user files, before attempting the recovery, as it will set up your system like new. This should solve your problem, but if it doesn't, please post back with further information.
 
Cheers

The issue has already solved, just writing for thos who might have the same issue. One day when I turned the notebook on, the keyboard and touchpad did not work. Restarting ddi not help.The only thing I put my attention that time was the battery is almost discharged, so I turned the notebook off, closed the lid, and plugged it in. The next day I turned it on, and everything was working.  Another idea on why it happened: when the notebook lid opens and closes, it might switch to tablet mode, so that the keyboad and touchpad are off.

Hi Guys,

I am a member of the sevenforums and currently have a win8 laptop so thought I'd sign up here (seems to be the same people behind both forums).

I'm having a little trouble and would really appreciate some feedback.

My Lenovo ideapad z500 had 2 keys (K and I) that stopped working (they worked on the touchscreen) and then after that the delete, 8, and arrow keys topped working. Not sure why.

Before I get the keyboard replaced I'm wondering if it could be something else? There's no water damage and I haven't dropped it so I'm confused. I was told it has to be water damage but maybe 1 drop from the condensation on a glass of water is all I can think that may have affected it.

Would be great for some input on this issue.

Thanks!

A:Laptop Keys Stopped working - Lenovo Ideapad Z500 Win8

I was told it has to be water damage



Not true. In fact, water in the keyboard normally does not cause permanent damage. That is, once the water dries, all works again - most of the time. But that does depend on many variables - type of keyboard membrane, how much water, if just water (no sugars or cream, for example), and how much dust, dirt, oily hair/dander, cigarette smoke, cookie crumbs, etc. are under the keys when the water was spilled. The greater damage generally comes when the water works it way through the keyboard and into the computer's electronics.

I would try a regular PC keyboard first to see what happens. If all the keys work properly with a standard USB keyboard, then you can be pretty certain it is the notebook keyboard at fault, and not something more serious.

                  If not
         I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Team about the Issue as this may be a device detection issue.

RELEVANCY SCORE 70.8

I've had this notebook for about 1 1/2 years from new and had no probs, until 2 days ago, when the battery suddenly wouldn't charge. I'm not sure the life expecteancy of the battery, so i thought i'd order another one online through HP anyway.I found on the HP web page a way to check the battery, it didn't recognise the battery was even in the notebook. Then i found out there was a battery recall last year on the HP web page but it didn't recognise the battery number.All I want is a battey for the notebook that works. Help,Gazza60

The lap top charging led no longer lights up and the battery doesn't charge. About 1 wk after warranty expired (end of APril) i turned one the laptop and used it for a while when a warning poped up indicating low battery and asked to connect to AC. Once plugged in, I noticed that the led light did not come on nor the power icon indicated AC. Searched this forum and found Re: My HP Spectre 360 laptop crashed suddenly and won't charge.Just before the the battery emptied, I  managed to complete the suggestion including hard reset and UEFI hardware test. Which passed. Along the way, I noticed NO beeps or power led blinking. Also, used a multimeter to measured the output of the charger when plugged into AC which showed similar measurements as for another HP charger. Unfortunately this charge's plug won't fit the Specter. The laptop is now unusable. Am hoping someone can help me recover this laptop and my investement.Thanks in advance.

A few days ago while I`m working on my laptop I noticed that it stopped charging, there was a message: "Plugged in, not charging". I tried to charge it with a different( 100% working charger) and it didn`t help. After I unplugged the chargers I noticed that the charging led keeps lighting even though it shouldn`t.The next day I tried to go over the steps of a soultion that an HP tech guy suggested here in the forums:Step 1. Go to Device ManagerStep 2. Select BatteriesStep 3. Right click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed thereStep 4. Click UninstallStep 5. At the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driverStep 6. Shutdown the computerStep 7: Remove the battery for minute and then put it back in It seemed like the solution worked cause the charging led started to work properly and while the laptop was on there was the normal message: "Charging", even though it didn`t charge, I saw the battery drains as the percents go lower and lower every couple of minutes.Now, I don`t have any more battery left and when I plug it in nothing happens and the led doesn`t work anymore.Please help me. I really don`t know how it happened, this latop is less than 2 years old and I rearly use it so there isn`t any chance that the battery is dead.Thank you.
