Something weird is going on with my Y700-15ISK

Q: Something weird is going on with my Y700-15ISK

When I first got my machine probably a year or more ago. It was blazing fast, and stable. My best yet in fact. Now not so stable.My keyboard just stops working at times. Usually when playing League of Legends on another similar game that relies heavily on hotkeys. Hotkeys that are impossible to use without a keyboard!On top of that, when I restart the machine to fix it. Since that's the only way that I've seen to do that. It encounters problems shutting down and fails. Triggering the recovery menu before boot. That menu is also broken because of no keyboard working. So I have to force another restart (holding down power button). Once I get back to Windows again. Sometimes my wifi doesn't work anymore. So it wont connect (or see) any networks available. So I end up restarting again when that occurs. When it doesn't. Then I enjoy a nice period of having a keyboard.Until it breaks again later. I've tried to determine what it is that's causing it. But haven't gotten anything yet.A call to Lenovo support had the guy suggesting, as soon as I got done describining the issue, to factory reset the machine. I told him I'd really rather find another solution. But he wasn't able to give me one. Guided me to do a BIOS default reset. Which fixed it temporarily (because the machine was restarted). But it came back.I really don't want to call Lenovo support again. Doubt it would help, and the guy I talked to barely spoke English. Sounded like he was from India. Please help guys!

Preferred Solution: Something weird is going on with my Y700-15ISK

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.)

A:32 GB Ram on Ideapad Y700-15ISK ?

Hi basitj  , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  
So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  
 
Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 
 
If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 
 
Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community.

Evening. I have purchased the Lenovo Y700-15ISK and having installed CS GO I am experiencing FPS spikes every 5-10 minutes of gameplay. At first I believed it was down to the GPU temperature reaching the throttle limit of 67 degrees but after further tests I have played for 1 hour+ and the temperature has not gone above 60 degrees. These spikes happen as soon as I enter the game even if the laptop has only just been turned on so I don't believe it is temperature related. I have the max processor state at 99% to eliminate turbo and it does not make any difference if I have the graphics settings on high or low. Any ideas or help would be appreciated as I seem to have hit a brick wall. Thanks in advance. Chris Keegan.

A:FPS Spikes on Y700-15ISK

Hi there, Chrisk ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
If the laptop is running on the battery, you will always be facing this problem. You have to run the games while using the power cord.
 
Plug in the AC adapter and set the power settings to high performance
 
Open the power options > change plan settings > change advance power settings and ensure the Link State Power Management is Off and Maximum Processor State is set to 100%.
Download & install GPU Shark (GPU Monitoring Tool) - you should see the GPU clock ~800Mhz+.
Download and install CoreTemp - you should see the CPU clock ~3Ghz+(turbo boost)
 
Also, This could be caused by the nvidia Optimus software. To fix it, simply go into your Nvidia Control Panel >>> Program Settings >>> Select a Program, and switch it to High Performance Nvidia Processor.
Done
 
Update us how it goes.

Just ran a calibration of the display using Calman RGB last night and have to say that I am a little disappointed.  The grayscale calibration worked well and I ended up with under .5% error but the color was way off out of the box and for some reason the Calman software could not make any significant improvement to the primary and seconday colors.  Initial color error was almost 9%... a very noticable flaw in color reproduction.  Calman did manage to improve other color points to get the overall color error to about 3% but, if just measuring the primaries and secondaries, the error appears to be in the 7% to 8% range. Curious if anyone else has tried calibrating their Y700 and managed to achieve better results ? Also curious what others think about the mod to remove the anti-glare film ?  I don't like it.  It actually creates a haze under direct sunlight.  And I wonder if the anti-glare film is messing with the color.

The antiglare really does impact clarity. I'm not sure if colors are affected by it, but reason seams to think yes to some extent.

Hello Community, I was experimenting with several Linux Distributions on my Y700 (no problems at all) and tried today to install Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 in EFI-mode from an USB-Stick and suddenly the installer crashed. So I had to shutdown and reboot. Since then it is not possible to access BIOS or boot-menu. F2 (BIOS), F12 (Bootoptions) or NOVO-Button, nothing works any more. When I press the power button the notebook starts, shows the Lenovo logo screen for 15 to 20 seconds then power off (power LED off) and starts again, shows Lenovo screen and so on in a loop. I got no idea what to do.Any suggestions? ThanksThomas

Hi everyone. I have a Lenovo y700-15ISK 80NV. Is the 2016 model with a gtx 960m of 4gb and with an NVMe of 256. It's been 5 wonderful months with this laptop. Until the HORROR happened, my keyboard stopped working out of the blue. And I had to hard reset the laptop for it to start working again. And if I didnt hard reset then a BSOD of Driver-Power-State-Failure attacked. So I entered the forums and started looking for answers. 1-All the drivers are up to date, even the BIOS. 2-I already formated it. Nothing helps. 3-I already tried disconnecting the battery and the AC and hitting the power button for 30 secs and all of that. 4- Is not an ssd problem, I removed it and the problem still happened EVEN IN THE BIOS. 5- Yes. Even when I'm inside the BIOS so hitting the Novo Button. Even int he NOVO BUTTON MENU. The keyboard stops working. After 15 secs 6- This week it got worse... I have just 10 secs to do something before the keyboard stops working. I cant do anything with the bios. System Recovery. Anything. So... This is kind of an old model. And its been 2 years for LENOVO to have an answer for this. Please help. I have no idea what to do. The BSOD exe was NTOSKRNL.EXE And I was on windows 10 with the latest updates. Now that I formated it... Im at the start of windows 10... but since I have 10 secs till my keyboard freeze... and like 5 mins for it to restart and gives me a BSOD. My laptop wont update anything in that short time. So... Read more

Not sure what is going on exactly. Once I was able to actually see what the "error" was on the blue page, the other times it was gone so freaking fast. "igdkmd64.sys" Recently I've also noticed that when I hover over links in either Chrome or Opera it starts to jitter the screen a bit, but firefox doesn't. Not sure if they are related or what. I downloaded the driver through windows (device manager and etc) and through intel and either did anything it seems. My GeForce drivers seem to be up to date as well. Hopefully someone has a though or etc.

I am experiencing a display error every time that I boot up my new laptop from sleep or being off.  It looks like there are boxes all over the screen (attached).  Oddly, it goes away after a few seconds of use. I updated my video driver, but the issue persists.  I am not extraordinarily tech savvy, but please let me know if there's anything else that I can try before taking it in to a service center. Thanks!

So, one recently my Lenovo Solution Center is giving me this error telling me something isn't working. Here's the error code: Result Code: WVC003002-UL7VON. Is this affecting my gaming? Because I haven't been able to run newer games all too well. And this computer has a 970m. That's somewhat new. Secondly, the computer has been running really slow recently, and not being very responsive. It'll freeze from time to time, or it won't work. Like I tried to open my windows search on windows 10, but it just wouldn't let me. Same with the Lenovo Center. I had to completely shut it down, and relaunch it for it to open it up. Thirdly, a question. How do I turn off the little pop-up thing when I turn on caps lock or num lock. I don't need a notification to tell me I pressed it, I know I pressed it. Thanks. And sorry for so much in one thread. This laptop is somewhat bother-some.

Grettings. So, last year i bought this Ideapad Y700 Touch-15ISK gaming laptop and i really love it, just that i would like to make a small upgrade to it, like having a SSD (exclusively to load OS) and a HDD (to install games/software, etc), i just wonder if it's possible (if the hardware has the slot to do so). Also i was wondering if i can replace it's graphics card to a higher-tier one (it came with a GeForce GTX 960M, was thinking to get the GTX 980M), as i was thinking to assemble a gaming PC, i thought it would be easier to me to just upgrade my gaming laptop (and save a lot more money doing so) Thanks in advance

Hello Guys,I have my Y700 with specification bellow +- 5month and it for some reason starts overheating.Processor: Intel Core i5-6300HQGraphic card: Nvidia gefore 960m (is set as default for games) I didn't have such a problems in the end of the summer, when I was playing Dead by Dayling on ultra settings. Before 3 weeks it begins overheating more and more even if the air around is much cooler then before. I tried to put the game settings on the minimum specs- still no changes. I have my cooling pad, so the air can go out under the laptop. I even tried a fresh new instalation of windows 10, but nothing helps. What came to my mind was, that the dust can be inside, but after 5 months, it can't be so bad.

So, every now and again, the keyboard will completely stop responding, seemingly for no reason. It started happening when I was playing Java-based games like Minecraft and Runescape, and I thought java might've been the cause of the issue, but soon after, it started happening at random points where I'm not playing any games, like when I'm watching videos on youtube, or I'm out of the room.While the keyboard is out cold, no key inputs are registered at all, yet i can still use my mouse.The only option I have to get the keyboard working again, is to turn off the computer, which I have to do by pressing and holding the power button down for a few seconds to force it to shut down immediately, because if I go into the start menu and tell it to shut down, it will crash and lock itself in a state where it says it's shutting down, but nothing happens.I've seen various similar issues on the internet while looking for a solution, such as this one, but in contrast to this example, I am able to keep using the laptop for hours, assuming I can be bothered to use the onscreen keyboard, without having various programs stop working as the laptop slowly crashes.A couple of things to note that I found interesting, which may or may not be related to the issue:1. If I have the keyboard's backlight on when it stops responding, the backlight will be off whenever i restart the system.2.

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.

Was that Win 10 via onekey. Regardless, check and apply the latest driver and utilities from downloads.Windows 10 will optimize fast boot startup after several shutdown and restart cycles. No doubt there are also outstanding Windows Updates as well which will take a long time to install and catch up to the current releases.
