Q: Upgrade LCD screen on a Flex 4 1470 80SA series la...

I recently purchased a Flex 4 14 inch 1470 (80SA series) laptop. It comes with the Pentium 4405U processor and Intel HD Graphics 510 video adapter. The screen is a 366x768 TN panel (quite unfortunately, though I did know this in advance). Looking at the Lenovo Flex 4 lineup, it seems that there are several similar models with the same processor and graphics adapter, but with a 1920x1080 IPS screen. Would it be possible to swap out the stock TN panel with one of the 1920x1080 IPS screens? If links are allowed, I am looking at the following screens that are available for this series: https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Lenovo/FLEX%204%2080SA%20SERIES/ Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

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 have a HD Flex 4 1470 80 SA notebook, Intel pentium with a low resolution screen.  It has an intel 510 graphics card.  I noticed there is another version of the 1470 80 SA also with Intel Pentium that has a full HD  IPS LCD screen. It has an intel 520 graphics card.  My question is....can you replace the screen with the higher resolution model to upgrade to the higher resolution?  I believe that I can, but will I need to replace the  510 graphics driver with the 520 driver, and will the existing LCD cable work also or will I have to replace that?  The manuals show both the units using the same cable part number.  Is it possible to do this as I would really like to upgrade to the full HD IPS resolution screen.  I have located a very affordable and compatible high resolution screen made for the flex 4 not sure about if it will work based upon the questions above.  Thanks.

Hello I'm having a lot of trouble with the screen of my lenovo flex 3.Seems like every time (or almost every time) i try to pick it up, move it or flip it into tablet mode, the screen fails and i have a black screen with white lines crossing. I have to restart the pc (the hard way), therefore losing everything i was doing before this event.I bought this computer 1 year ago but I'm not a big computer user, i use it probably once a week or less, but it still seems like im using an old computer that can fail at any moment.Just to clarify, this computer never had any kind of "accident", never fell or never had any kind of bump. I dont move it from my home and its never been on a backpack. What can i do, or what can you do for fixing this computer? I hope you can help solve this problem. Thanks.

My ~2 week old Lenovo Flex 5's screen started to flicker a few days ago and the issue has become progressively worse since then to a point where most of the screen is covered by black flickering at times. The computer starts fine, but when the computer is moved and especially when the screen is moved up or down the flickering appears. Sometimes the flickering only starts after the computer has been on for a few hours (restarting the PC fixes the issue for a short while). I have tried updating to the latest Intel graphics drivers in the device manager to no avail. I then tried uninstalling the display drivers from the device manager, that only seemed to work for a short while. Is this a faulty screen that should be RMA'd immediately or is it likely a software-related issue?

Hello all, I just purchased a Flex 5 1470 80XA for simple drawing purposes for a project my company is working on and the HID Compliant Touch Screen driver is not on the machine.  I am currently on the latest Windows 10 and BIOS builds. Now, I have scoured the forums and the internet at large and I can't find a consistent answer on why this is the case or how to fix it.

Hello. My Flex 3-1470 is having display problems. At first, I thought that the screen was simply not working, but this morning I realized that it actually is, but is very dim. I would think this means the backlight isn't working, but it appears that there actually is some backlight, as the brightness rapidly changes (once or twice every second) but always remains very dim. Brightness ranges between "completely off, I think" and "can just about read the text in the BIOS", with lots of stages in between. It jumps between these stages of different brightness at random. I have discovered that pressing F9 (the screen disable key) will cause the screen to briefly light up correctly (for maybe 100 milliseconds or so) before going back to the dim, constantly changing brightness. Brightness keys do nothing. Is this a problem with the backlight inverter? Is the inverter a separate board on this model, or is it built into the motherboard? Or is the display itself broken? The model ID is 80jk00fecf. Thanks!

I bought the Flex 4 1470 2-in-1 14"  in July 2016 and today when I turned it on I got a pop-up and something to the effect that I had Lenovo critical updates and did I want to install them. I didn't know what they were but thought they were needed for my Flex, I clicked OK. Then I got another pop-up saying something to the effect that the binaries would change for yoga and some other machines, but it didn't mention my Flex and so I answered NO to the download.Does anyone know what this was all about and whether I needed those critical update/downloads?And if I do need them, how do I now get them?This is all very confusing to us senior citiens and these random pop-ups.Please help me if you can.

I've seen a few times where I have not used my Lenovo for a several minutes it will go into "sleep mode" and I have to hit the power button to open it again. But it is asking me to sign in. I have to turn it off by holding the power button and then turn it back on. And then it will start showing my normal desktop. How can I stop that "sign in" from showing? I never created a password and didn't think I need to do that.
Can anyone help?

In Sign In Options it has "Password.... Your account doesn't have a password. You must add a password before you can use the other sign-in options."
Whatever that means???? I never created a password and don't understand why it is asking me to "Sign In" when I turn in on from the Sleep mode.

Does anyone have a Lenovo - Flex 4 1470? (Win10/64bit) I bought mine in July 2016 and yesterday when I signed on I got a pop-up from Lenovo telling me about a "critical" Lenovo update. I am pretty sure if was referring to BIOS update = v.0vcn.22ww / 120 MB.
I clicked for it to install and then another pop-up saying something about it (possibly) changing binaries, etc. I didn't know what that was all about and so I cancelled the downlod.
Today I phoned Lenovo and spoke to a woman who said "they" didn't recommend downloading/installing updates to BIOS unless I was having problem with this laptop.
As I asked, does anyone else have a Lenovo Flex 4.1470? If so, did you get this critical update notice and if you did, did you install it?
I am 81 years old and know nothing about these things and wonder if I should just forget about downloading the BIOS update? Or whether it MUST be downloaded for this Lenovo to operate properly.
Thanks for any help.

I have been trying to register my new Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4-1470 on the Lenovo website for nearly a wekk now.  I am stuck at the part where it asks for you to enter the Product KEY.  Now, I was under the notion that product KEYS were mainly only used for softwares.  I first thought maybe it meant the product number.  I have searched in evry forum, blog, post, search site, Lenovo app, paperwork, you name it, and can not find either of these for this laptop.  I then used the support chat on Lenovo's website and asked a CSR who proceeded to tell me that it is in fact a product "KEY' I need and that it is given to the buyer at time of purchase.  He also told me that when purchasing from the Lenovo website that it is emailed to you.  Unfortuantly, I did not purchase it from there, but at Best Buy instead.  But the CSR in  the Support Chat assured me that this "Product KEY" is required to register the laptop and it is given at time of purchase.  Can anyone help me here - is it printed on the receipt?  Maybe on the one (1) measly little folded paper that came with the laptop in the box (which I have checked about 30 times and there is nothing very useful at all on this scrawny paper) ?  And, is it me, or has Lenovo's product support gone straight down the crapper?  Seriously, no TANGIBLE product information included in the box???  And the Lenovo Apps are a joke, and bad ones at that (crickets chirpping in the back...

Laptop: Lenovo Flex 3 1470
OS: Windows 10 pro x64
Card: AC-3160

I have this strangest issue with my Lenovo Flex 3 1470. My built in bluetooth receiver only turns on when i restart windows. If I shut off windows completly and then turn it back on again, bluetooth doesnt work. The icon is dissapeared from the action center and from the device manager. In this state (with laptop on and bluetooth not working), if I restart windows (through start>on/off>restart) the bluetooth device suddenly becomes available upon rebooting. And it works completly stable with all connected devices. I don't want to restart my laptop every time I want to use a bluetooth device.
 
I have tried several things, a clean windows 10 installation, some energy on and off switches in device manager and many different kind of drivers. I even tried replacing the card with a ac7265, but when i did this WiFi worked and bluetooth entirely didnt work nor did it show up in device manager. I waisted money in a effort to fix this strange bluetooth problem,  i guess.
 
Ideas anyone?

Recently bought this laptop and having issues waking this system up from Sleep. I updated the BIOS to the latest version and the system shows that all the drivers as up to date. System was bought from Microsoft Store ( if that's an important data point as MS does not install all the bloatware that typically comes with it). Here are my observations; scenarios are all in laptop mode, I haven't ventured much in to tablet mode. If I leave the laptop plugged in with no activity, Screen powers off after the specified time. When I try to wake the system, it does not respond. Power light stays solid and is not blinking as I would expect it to be. Only option to bring up the system is a reboot. I have the Balanced Power Mode active. If I put the system to Sleep from the Start Menu ( Power - Sleep), System goes to sleep, Power light blinks indicating sleep mode and I am able to wake the system up with key press.  I am reasonably tech savvy, but has not been able to find a solution . Love the laptop at the pricepoint in every other aspect and would really like to keep this, if I can solve this issue. Any guidance from gurus out here is appreciated !
