IdeaPad 710s 13ISK Wifi Issue

Q: IdeaPad 710s 13ISK Wifi Issue

Hello there! I bought the Ideapad 710s recently but i'm experiencing a serious WiFi issue. After cold start the wireless network adapter cannot be recognised. There isn't even an entry in the device manager pointing to an unknown device or a missing driver. It is absolutely not possible to allow it. Restart doesn't help either. After many restarts and attempts to switch th adapter on, I've succeded, and from that moment on, it stays active with no further issue. Countless resarts later it's still on and the function is okay. The problem is, that on the next day (i think that means, when the notebook is cold) the issues appears again. There is no network adapter, and it appears much later. What i've tried by now: 1. Did a full Windows update2. Reinstalled every single driver from the Lenovo support center3. Turned every single energy saving feature off4. Did a BIOS update5. Did a full system recovery (and repeated the steps 1, 2 and 3)6 Made a clean Windows 10 installation (and repeated the steps 1, 2 and 3) After each and every of the steps mentioned above, the issue appeared after cold start on the next day and disappeared after about an hour of being turned on. The wireless adapter is UEFI ENABLED all the time. Well after two weeks and countless attempts to solve the problem i have no idea, what more could i possibly do. Does someone experienced such issue, and if yes, what was the solution for it. Best regards and happy new year!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello there!I'm planing to buy a new notebook, and found the 710s-13ISK (80SW003NGE) interesting. There are 5 different configurations of it, with different CPUs and memory amount. The cheapest one is the only one i could afford, and it has the weakest CPU i3-6100U, which is no issue at all, but this one has only 4GB of DDR3L. I'd still like to buy this one, but only if I'm able to upgrade the memory some day to 8GB, in case the 4GB are not enough for my usage scenarios. Unfortunately i cannot find any specific information, whether the mainboard has a RAM slot (so the 4GB could be replaced by bigger 8GB), or the memory is soldered directly on the mainboard (means not replaceable). Does anyone have this particular notebook, and could give me some information about this one? Many, many thanks in advance!

Hi there, I've been trying my best to find the ideapad 710s-13ISK with the i7 processor and iris 540 graphics. However this has not been easy at all. I live in Belgium and I have not found a single (web)shop that has this product. In the Netherlands (close to Belgium) I can only find this product on the Lenovo website, nowhere else. I've been told I can't purchase it from the NL website, so do I have any way of getting this specific laptop? (http://shop.lenovo.com/nl/nl/laptops/ideapad/700-series/710s/) I know it's not really a good question to put on the forums, but I have been struggling to reach Lenovo (both BE and NL). Thanks in advance, Sam

I like my ideapad 710S-13isk except that I hate the Elan touchpad which really damages the whole experience. I am hoping it's a configuration issue--it is certainly a software rather than hardware problem, but I have not been able to find a way around it. Three (software) issues: 1) there appears to be no way to configure the ENTIRE touchpad to respond as a one-finger-left-click, two-fingers-right-click touchpad.  The software breaks up the touchpad into three different sections, and that is that.  So two fingers on the central area will right-click, or two fingers in the lower left corner will right-click, for example, but one finger in the lower right corner and one finger in the middle-right will NOT right-click.  This is a huge pain unless one makes a point of only using the top portion of the touchpad, which is ridiculous. 2) I am used to being able to select an item with one finger, and then stroke with another finger to move the item in preparation for dropping it. My other computers have worked that way.  This touchpad does not.  UPDATE:  this seems to be working now after updating to the latest drivers. 3) Tapping to click only works with one finger.  It'd be nice if it worked with two.  That is more complicated for the software since fingers never tap truly simultaneously, but other devices can figure it out. If anyone can help me with settings to correct these issues, I would be grateful. &n...

Hi and hello there,  I just bought a new Ideapad 710S and I absolutely love it. Great design and great performance, except for one thing: WiFi speed. I checked it simultaneously with my phone and old laptop and they both have around 40mb/sec. The laptop manages to get around 15mb/sec. Now I already updated the drivers (Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165) and windows 10 update, however, this had no effect. Also, when I tried downloading various items it's about half the speed of my old laptop (also running Windows 10).  Any help would be sincerely welcome!! Thanks in advance and all the best,  Jan

After a longer period of just frustration about the wifi of my Lenovo IdeaPad 500S-13ISK I started to investigate abut that issue. I use a Fritzbox 7390 DSL-WLAN-Router and frequently the communication stops to work. According https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/SOLVED-IdeaPad-510s-Qualcomm-QCA9377-sl... it could be solved by "disabled the WMM/QoS on ... router", but my router doesn't offer that. Using a web search shows, that other notebook manufacturers are exchanging the qualcomm with a intel module fro free on demand.Does lenovo offer such a free service also?

Just received my new notebook and am extremely happy with it, execept for the battery indicator. The effective charge reamining, fluctuates by a wide margin, suddenly jumping from 4 hours remaining - to 3 hours - to 6 hours in a matter of minutes! The PC was left in idle state with no processing happening whatsoever. at 100% charge it shows 5 hours 6 mts of remaining time, as the charge drops to 97% after 5 mins of idle, the remaining time changes to 2 hrs 34 mins and at 94% charge after another 5 mins, it shows 7 hr 20 mins of remianing time! I called Lenovo service and after one hour of trying this and and that, they offered to replace the PC with a comment that battery takes 1 week to settle down and stabilise! I find that a bit out of the ordinary. My config is 710S, i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Windows 10, with Lenovo optimiser loaded. (The battery gauge reset, suggested by service is missing in this version - the service staff themselves could not find it).  Is anyone else having similar issues?

Hi Lenovo,hi to everyone. I've just recently bought 710s plus-13ISK with an idea to have some not so hard gaming (onboard 940mx). But I've found that the GPU clocks are decreasing so much that it's not possible to achieve acceptable frame rates in games (World of Warships, for example) even on low-mid settings. The information on different internet resources (which I checked before buying this laptop) stated that this kind of video cards has far more potential than demonsrated in my case. Further investigation showed that the thermal limit set for particulary this videocard in this laptop is only 61 C. This is as low as hell. As usually, the thermal limit for nVidia cards is at least 85 C. I'm totally not satistified with this. I don't remember any advertisements from Lenovo saying that the videocard in this quite expensive laptop is so slowed down even in not demanding games. If I had this knowledge than I would never buy this laptop. Saying so I'm requesting Lenovo representatives to provide me BIOS with normal clocks and thermal limit for the videocard. Thank you.

The camera on my 710S laptop haven't been working for a long time, though I don't remember whether any updates/new softwares caused it, or it was like this from the beginning. The issue is, that basically all apps are saying, that the camera is used by another application, or give an error message. For example in Skype the cam feed does not load at all in calls. When I go to settings in Skype, it loads the camera image for a second, then reloads and reloads. In Windows's Camera app I get the following error code: 0xA00F4271(0x80070001). I have tried to restart the computer, reinstall the driver, etc, but nothing works. When I go to Device manager, it looks like everything is perfect, though I don't understand why it shows two Imaging devices (Easycamera + SEC8425190013F4). I have even tried to disable one of them, but it didn't work either.

Less than a month ago I bought a brand new Lenovo Ideapad 710s, today it suddenly turned off even though it's battery was at 64%. I then plugged in the charger and tried turning it on - nothing happened. Then I held down the power button at it turned on. Only to turn off again after about 15 minutes.Now, it won't turn on at all.If I hold down the power button, the light behind the keyboard blinks, but the screen stays black. When I plug in the charger, the light that shows it is charging is on, so the charger is working.I just can't turn on my computer at all. I don't know if this information is needed, but I have used it almost every day, around 6 hours every day I've used it (I'm using it for school only). The only things installed on the computer was Office 365 and a driver so that I could use my printer.Any idea how to get it working again?

Since some weeks I have been experiencing some issues with charging the battery.  It was charging just occasionally,  I often needed to unplug power cable and plug it back in to proceed charging, "plugged in, not charging" and so on.  It was working like that until yesterday. Now,  the bettery seems to be fully uncharged. If I plug in power cable, no one led is on, and also nothing happens. I cannot turn it on...  The charger should be ok, at least, the voltage inside of laptop is ok. I tried several workarounds for "power led is on,  but laptop wont turn on", but nothing helped. What else could I try before sending it to the service?

Hi - the current version of the ideapad 710s BIOS does not allow changing of the SATA/drive mode from RAID to AHCI. As a result, it is pretty much impossible to install Linux onto these systems. I've tried multiple combinations of things - completely wiped the drive, disabled UEFI, Secure Boot and enabled Legacy mode, etc - and nothing works.  The currently locked SATA mode basically prevents Linux from even seeing the SSD.  I've tried the latest versions of Ubuntu and Gentoo - both with the same result. Is there any reason why this setting is not exposed?  Are there any plans to expose it?

Okay so I've had this computer less than 3 months and it's given me nothing but problems. Now it refuses to even turn on. The power LED turns on but the screen remains blank. This is an non removal battery type before anyone says remove the battery and use the adapter. I've drained the battery which has worked before but this time when I try to charge it the orange battery LED blinks three times. And still nothing on the screen. Any Lenovo stores are quite far away. Anyone knows what's going on?

There seems to be no way to diffrentiate internal speakers from headphone jack volume on this machine. When I use the built in speakers I usually have the volume on 60-80% to be able to hear things normally.However that level of volume is making my ears bleed when I plug in the headphones. On every computer I've used you can go to sound options and choose "show disconnected devices" then set the volume for that device (being headphones in this case) but nothing shows up. Even when headphones are plugged in (and working as intended i guess) the sound device still shows up as speaker. This must be an oversight? I have also downloaded the most recent driver from the this site. Currently I have to turn down volume to around 20% before connecting the headphones.

I live in Toronto, Canada. I bought Lenovo Ideapad 710S (i5-6200 128GB SSD 8GB Ram) in August 2016. Used only 2 weeks, the laptop couldn't recognized the hard drive. It was sent to MIAD (local Lenovo certified repair center) and diagnosed as hard drive dysfunction. The technician told me since it is a "consumer" laptop (vs. business laptop such as ThinkPad), they don't have the part to repair/replace. I waited 4 weeks until the new hard drive arrive and the laptop was still not working. MIAD told me it was not hard drive problem and beyond their ability to repair. The laptop was later sent to Lenovo repair center (US).A week later I got a notice from Lenovo said the laptop had arrived but the part they need is in back order.5 weeks later still no sign of getting the problem fixed. Contacted Lenovo and get the same answer. Only compensate so far is extension of my warranty for 2 months. However, no compensation about the usability. For about 10 weeks, I have to use my old Pentium M Thinkpad. If I bought a new laptop, it might already arrived!Conclusion: Don't buy Lenovo "consumer" laptop (Ideapad, Yoga etc), at least in Canada.

Randomly I got the Blue Screen of Death error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and apparently this issue occurs because the iastor.sys driver, is not compatible with Windows 10. So I changed the storage controller from Intel Rapid Storage sata controller to Intel mobile express chipset sata controller which was the other driver already on my 3 week old laptop. However, after this the laptop would not boot! It just kept saying 'automatically attempting repairs'. I then went into the BIOS and changed the SATA from RAID to AHCI and then the laptop would boot. But now the driver is just 'Standard NVM Express Controller'. I tried to reinstall the intel rapid stroage sata controller driver but then the laptop would not boot in RAID or AHCI! So I had to do a system restore and now the laptop seems to be working on AHCI and it has a boot loop on RAID.  My question is, should I put the laptop back on RAID (original factory setting) and after the boot loop should I reset the laptop to install a fresh copy of Win10 from recovery? Or should I leave it as it is now on AHCI with Microsoft Standard NVM Express Controller driver? Are there any disadvantages? My SSD is a Samsung PM961 (samsung mzvlw512hmjp) I need some help quickly before my 30 days returns period runs out. I really like the laptop but are there any problems with it?

Hi  I am thinking of purchasing a 13" Lenovo ideapad 710s ($1199 model) over a MacBook air. I have been using a macbook air for several years and recently thought of getting a new laptop. Lenovo's 710s seems to be quite good on paper (except the battery life), but I couldnt find any reviews online which can tell me if the laptop is as good as Lenovo projects it to be. If anyone has bought/used Lenovo 710s, can  you guys chime in and let me know if this laptop came on par with your expectations (esp. the battery life)? Thanks

A:Lenovo Ideapad 710s question

hi. Here I leave you computer manual so you can compare, the battery is a consumable device that usually lasts depending on the use that will give the team being new can last an average of 3 hours, you should know that each load you do it is that you take away useful life. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Z-Base-de-conocimientos/Optimizando-el-tiempo-de-duraci%C3%B3n-de-la-ba... Manual service:https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_710S-13ISK_hmm_201603.pdf Regards.

Hello lenovo community.
 
I just got my new Lenovo Ideapad 710s-13sk yesterday.
 
I've used it for 2 days now, and it seems that the 2 finger scroll up and down triggers the 3 finger function from time to time?
 
So when i want to scroll, sometimes the task view shows up or everything minimizes depending on what direction i scroll of course.
 
Have anybody else experienced this and found a solution for it?
 
Best Regards,
Christian

I am trying to run games on my 710s with the i5 6260U and Intel Iris 540 graphics, with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD.The nature of the video card in this laptop showed promise for casual playing of current titles at low settings, however early results were dissapointing. Upon installing Throttlestop and Intel XTU in order to undervolt the package and squeeze more performance, my surprise was high upon finding that the package consumed no more than 10W at very low temperatures with the fan barely spinning, all while running Doom 2016 at 720P Low settings at 20FPS.Changing power use settings in the Intel Graphics control panel and in the Windows power use utility raised the FPS to 30 and the power use to around 13-14W, but the temperatures barely reach 60C and the fans aren't even spinning at full blast, and actually turn on and off all the time while running the game. Eventually the power consumption stabilizes at 13W, and Throttlestop states that it's due to a TDP limit.Is there a way of increasing this limit in order to attain the full performance of the laptop?
