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.)

I have a Miix 310-10ICR Tablet (ideapad) which is only a few months old but now jams as it says the Windows 10 updates won't install due to lack of memory. I only browse the internet using Chrome and use Facebook a couple times per week so don't see how I'm using up extra memory and when I check the memory it's basically all Windows. I've tried stopping the updates but it keeps kicking back in. Also, on such a new machine, I don't see why it shouldn't handle Windows when that is what it came installed with. Any suggestions appreciated.

Lenovo IdeaPad MIIX less than a month old with about 6hrs use.Now it won't power up.I connect the power adapter. Hold down the power button until an image of an 'empty' battery appears along with the small white light at the top of the keyboard. These show for a few seconds and then everything shuts down.I've tried pressing the 'vol +' button and power button but still won't power or boot up.Any suggestions?Thanks.

Hi There I have an IdeaPad Miix 710.  It does not come with HDMI or VGA out, which I need very much for customer presentations. I did try to but an USB 2.0 to HDMI connector.  But the device requries me to install a special Windows driver that is conflict with IdeaPad.  So I can't use it. Can someone please let me know any accessories out there that I can get to make it happen? Thanks

I have had this laptop for 2 weeks, working fine.  Suddenly today it will not turn on or off.  It seems to be stuck in an endless cycle where every 5 seconds the Lenovo logo appears on the screen then after a second it turns off and then reappears after 5 seconds....  This continues repeat despite trying to turn the device on or off, even holding the button for 20 seconds etc.  Any thoughts?

I am running W10 V1607 OS 14393.187 and I cannot make the computer shutdown properly. I get the standard shutting down message from Windows then the screen blanks out. However if the keyboard is attached, the power light stays on, and it is definitely still on. I have changed the power settings to shutdown when lid is closed to no avail. The ONLY way to shutdown is using the hard shutdown by pressing the power key and volume control simultaneously, which is not really my preferred option. I have installed all the drivers etc which are suggested, but still without any luck. Does anyone have any idea what I should do next??

Hey guys, I recently purchased the Lenovo Ideapad Miix 700 and found that whenever I type or use the keyboard, it disables the mouse for around a second (I think it's called palm tracking). On other laptops I've used, I've been able to disable it by accessing the driver or mouse settings. However, with the Miix, there appears to be no option or ability to access options to disable it. I've tried downloading the Elantech Touchpad Driver from Lenovo but it literally did nothing and the only driver that pops up for mice is just 'HID Compliant Mouse'. The suggestion to edit registry entries doesn't work because there seems to be no touchpad mentioned anywhere in the registry.Does anyone know how I can disable it? It's insanely frustrating to use sometimes, having the mouse constantly freeze.Edit: Managed to find HID in the registry and it does have Elan related entries in it but not really sure what to do with that

Hey, so I just bought a lenovo Miix 310 two weeks ago and now I get notifications that the storage is full and I need storage in order to update windows. I put in a SanDisk micro SD and it recognizes it but nothing happens. I deleted all apps that I do not need and have only the stuff that I can't delete. I do not know what I can do because I need more storage to update windows and I would like to have at least some essential apps (office word etc.) on the ideapad. Can someone help me out or has similar experiences? Thanks. Miri

I just brought the Ideapad the week before Halloween. My very first time buying Lenovo ends up a disaster and somehow I have lost confidence in this brand. After just one week of usage, it suddenly freeze and turn into a black screen, with the power light on, yet never able to turn on the screen no matter what buttons I press. Black screen can turn up in the middle of documents typing. When I'm out to toilet or kitchen, back to the seat, oh it's the forever black screen again.  I thought something wrong with the sleep mode, so I press NEVER so that the computer will never go to sleep mode. But it was useless. Scan for problems. No errors. Try doing updates. Nothing change. Last week I phoned the Lenovo hotline for help, the staff taught me to change the power setting. Nope, it didn't work as well.  At first it's just two to three times a day, and now it can happen like once or even twice an hour. The computer freeze all the time and have to go restart all the time, and it sometimes freeze in the start screen. And freeze when surfing on internet, not a black screen, yet not able to move the mouse. Freeze Freeze Freeze, everything is getting worse. What can I do? For reference, I have never installed games. All I have installed are Evernote, Chrome and LibreOffice.

I purchased the Lenovo Miix 320-10ICR Tablet (IdeaPad) on 07/24/2017 at my local Office Depot in Lake Zurich, IL. I have two issues: (1) According to Lenovo, the warranty started on 05/11/2017, more than two months BEFORE it was purchased. They say the warranty end date was 07/09/2018, which is two weeks LESS THAN the full year promised. (2) The round tip of the charger has broken off and I cannot find a replacement. According to the "Hardware Maintenance Manual", the part number is 5A10N38133. It is not available on the Lenovo website. It is not available anywhere else in the United States. The laptop is less than a year old - how am I supposed to keep it charged? Please help! Thank you!

Hi AnnieB345,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Here is the article guide to correct the warranty entitlement.
 
How to correct an incorrect Warranty Date
 
"If you had purchased your machine from a retailer, business partner, reseller, Lenovo starts the Base Warranty at the time the shipment was purchased by the retailer, business partner, or reseller from Lenovo. To compensate for the time the computer may have sat in a warehouse or on the shelf unsold, Lenovo generally adds an additional month to theBase Warranty, Lenovo allows date to be adjusted." 
 
Call in technical support. Have the receipt (proof of purchase) handy to send via email so that they can have it updated and likewise inform them about the adapter so both issues would be handled at the same time.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi, just bought a miix310 80sg Windows 10.  Needed linux but because of gpt and uefi had to format the hard drive. I have both the windows backup image of all my drives and images from a software.  PB: the bios is so awful it won't allow me to boot any usb not even the usb of a the Windows cd recovery (as this doesn't have a cd player).I used linux to format back to gpt and copied all the drives the way it was but it displays a blue screen error 'partition or drive is missing'  researched again and from linux enabled 'boot flag' on the efi drive and the recovery one;but ever since cannot even load my linux usb. And it goes always to that blue screen with no option of usb.  ...This Is the summary. Its my 5th day. Spared you of all the Iso, rufus and recovery are. What can I do? I have a desktop with win7 and linux handy,a new memory,(the internal one is 30gb  but there is a slot for an external) and a mini usb cable I could use. (Btw I have used the cable when off and on blue screen but the drive is not displayed on desktop) that's about it.  Thx all,

I have a Miix 510 and I am finding that I need to charge during the day.  I don't always have access to a power point, so I am looking at power banks.  I know that it won't charge off the USB-C port, so I am looking at either USB-A or charging port charging.  Is it possible to charge through the USB-A port? and Can anyone recommend a power bank and power cord that plugs into my device? Thanks in advance.

A:Miix 510 charging

Hi lazy_jim,
 
Unfortunately, the 510 doesn't accept power on any of the 5V rails. It charges via 20V on the barrel jack, and being a common voltage, you may be able to try something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Laptops-External-50000mAh-Portable-Notebook/dp/B073R6NKLW
