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.)

Hello, Just recently purchased the Legion Y540, and I'm trying to figure out how to control the fan speed. I've been through 3 chat sessions with Lenovo, no luck there. So far it seems the only way to control the fans is with Extreme Cooling through Lenovo Nerve Center. I've downloaded the most recent version of this program, and that function is not there. Only 2 of the 4 functions are there (Prevent Mistaken Input and Network Priority). Looking through the forums, this seems to be a common problem with Nerve Center on other Lenovo computers. Lenovo can you please fix this program? I have updated my BIOS to BHCN28WW (Also tried BHCN27WW, as provided by the Lenovo Support Specialist in chat), the most recent one, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Nerve Center, no luck anywhere. Lenovo Vantage seems to have very limited control option ("Performance Mode" = "Higher CPU usage, higher fan speed"? What if my GPU usage/temp is high but my CPU isn't, so the fans won't kick in?). Just looking to keep my gaming laptop cool while gaming. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Still trying to decide on the display type when buying this Legion Y540 laptop. I have not got enough awnsers. I asked before in this thread : https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/y540-60hrz-vs-144hz-display-differences/m-p/4515501#M304... , And was adviced this page : https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo%20Laptops/Lenovo%20Legion%20Y540-15IRH/Lenovo_Legion... I dont think its enough. I want to know conclusively, if there are any other differences between the 300 nits 60hz and 144hz display panels aside from the framerates. Now i know they will have the same color gamut, and brightness, but what about response times? Cant find anything about that. And what about the bits? Are they 6 bit ( +dithering maybe ) or 8 bit? Are they the same panels ( ie brand etc. ), with the only difference being the framerate? Or are they different ( ie brand / response times / etc ). I find the specsheet lacking. Sorry for the many questions, i am merely trying to pick the best laptop for my son with the money i can afford, and i get a little "carried away" on specs etc. I mean its only 50euro differnce between the 2 panels, so if anything other than the framerates is inferior on the 60 hz panel, i think i will go with the 144hz panel. If they are exactly the same apart from framerates, i will go with the 60Hz panel and save 50eu to maybe spend it on insurance or something. Please help a me make a good, informed choise and make my son ...

Lenovo Legion Legion Y520  running windows 10 I am connected to a Sony TV by HDMI.  When I use the TV as the only display or as an extended display the image is downscaled to 720p.  If I clone the display from my laptop it will render full 1080p. All of the settings I can find appear to be correct.  The laptop says that it is displaying 1920x1080.  I would like to get the TV to work as primary display.  I know it is not the TV.  It can display the cloned desktop and works properly for game consoles also using HDMI.  I have tried using different HDMI ports on the TV.

Hi,I am interested in purchasing a Lenovo Legion Y540 gaming laptop (the 15-inch version). After configuring it I noticed that the keyboard is in German. Is there a way to change that? I currently live in Germany, so I guess that's why I am offered the german version, but I am much more comfortable with an English keyboard. Thank you for your help!

Earlier this week I stood up while holding my Y540.  The power brick, which is quite heavy, fell off the desk and ripped the power cord out of the DC-IN power jack.  The plastic clips that hold the power cord in place were destroyed, and now I can't get a stable power connection anymore. I'd like to replace the DC-IN power jack on the motherboard.  The problem is I can't seem to find the part anywhere.  Lenovo won't sell it to me (it's an FRU only part) and I can't find anywhere online that sells an 81Q4 power jack. Does anyone know if there are other compatible DC power jacks I could use for my Y540?  I'm quite comfortable replacing parts on a system board, I only need to find the appropriate part.   Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello, I own a Lenovo Legion Y520 (the one with 2tb HDD) and I would like to add an SSD to it as well. From what I've read, if I want to keep my HDD and add an SSD, I will need an M.2 type SSD. Also, I have found an SSD that I think would be compatible with my Y520, but I wanted to ask here before buying it. The SSD I'm talking about it the SSD WD Black 256GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 2280. I will also attach a picture of it, so if anyone could tell me if it's compatible, I'll be very thankful.This is the one

Dear Lenovo community,I am considering an ssd upgrade. I know that my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN) supports m.2 NVMe gen 3.0 x4, but is it compatible with gen 3.0 x2? I found some good deals, they are actually about half the price of an x4 ssd ...Also, what length does it support? I found a link for the ssd that comes in it (in higher configurations), so is that the maximum length?Thanks in advance for your reply.

HelloI need to buy a new laptop and I found this one which people say it's suitable for games (and within my budget). Do you guys think it meets all the requirements for playing games, new games especially like assassin's creed odyssey? I'm no real expert when it comes to these kind of things . Will this configuration last long or it's going be old in a couple of years (in terms of gaming requirements I mean).
