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 haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have a Lenovo 100s Chromebook, and on my main user account the touchpad stops working and the mouse dissappears every few minutes. I have to do a force shutdown whenever this happens, and I tried a powerwash on my computer to delete all local files, but it still happened twice more after just a few minutes when I reopened my main google user account. I'm currently using the Guest Account and I have yet to encounter the problem. This problem appeared just a few days ago and has become more and more frequent, now reaching the point where I have to force shutdown and restart so often that I cannot work in my classes. I don't want to have to replace the computer, and I can't figure out a software or hardware solution to this issue. Thanks!

Hi All, I purchaed a Lenovo 100s last week, both the Lenovo and John Lewis sites that I ordered from clearly state that it comes with a years Office 365 subscription. It looks like the software is installed but is not activated and asks for a product key, there was no product key in the box. The only key I have is for a Onedrive subscription. I contacted Lenovo customer support three days ago but have not received a response. Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone know how I can activate this software? Thanks

Hi All, According to Lenovo's website the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-11lBY Storage is 32 GB / 64 GB eMMC. My storage says 29.1GB total. Does that simply mean that they developed versions that had 29.1 GB available, that I am missing an update, that I need to upgrade, or something else? I did my disk clean up to remove older versions of Windows 10, have the defrag set to weekly auto, try to keep the files saved to it to a minimum, and removed XboxApp, but it's hard working with only 29.1 GB. Not to mention I can not install the new version of Windows 10 because of it's size. Thanks for your help! rosenoir659

Hi everyone, my 100s Ideapad recently had a charging issue where it won't charge unless you cram it in. So, I ordered a new charger off of Amazon with the same output voltage. However, when I plug the charger in, it doesn't show the charging light or turn on. I tried unplugging the battery and holding the button down, but it didn't work. The gold part inside the charging port is loose, I think that's what's wrong. Does anyone have any fixes?

I own a LENOVO 100S Chromebook. Lenovo does not sell these any more. I looked online if my chromebook had a Card Reader. I also own a Kodak and need a Card Reader to do what I needed to do. The website I looked at stated that Yes it does. But... it did not state where. My question is If and Where is my Card Reader?

A:Card Reader? for LENOVO 100S

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
According to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual there is a card reader.  It should be on the left side of the laptop and it is in between the USB port and the Audio Jack.   The card reader may have a dummy card inserted into it to keep the slot free of dust. That may have prevented you from easily seeing it.  Just eject the dummy card for use of the slot.
 
Here is your manual for your reference.  Page #37 shows the location of the card reader.

First off, I'm going to say this laptop was a Christmas gift from a friend. I do not have ANY computers in this house aside from this one. I use this laptop for blogging and listening to music as well as job hunting, however, it will not register the keyboard or touchpad at all. I called Customer Support and the best answer they could give me was to bring it back to the store I got it from--this was an incompetent answer to the problem. I have tried touching and holding the power button for 15 seconds and when it restarts, the problem is not fixed. None of the keys are working. Period. I have a mouse for a gaming computer, however, I do not have a keyboard to plug in to use. If I could get a response to this, that would be GREAT!!! I cannot log in or do anything with my lap top right now and am currently stuck doing things from my cell phone.

Hello My Ideapad 100S has in the last couple of days developed a curious problem. If I try to drag something using the touchpad, after holding down the left button, when I move my finger across the pad the machine behaves as if its receiving multiple double-taps rather than mouse-moves. So, for instance, if you do this on a map it does lots of zoom-ins. Any ideas, anyone?

Hi All, First off thank you for this community it's been incredibly helpful. I think I may have bricked my 100s-14IBR and need some advice. I received this laptop secondhand from a family member and being computer savvy (or at least so I thought) I wanted to make it my own and install Windows 7 Pro on it. So let's get started. Bios SettingsSecure Boot: DisabledBoot Priority: Legacy SupportBoot Priority: Legacy FirstUSB Boot:Enabled - Booting from USB with Windows 7 iso created using Rufus - "MBR partition for scheme UEFI"- File system was FAT32 So I am able to boot from USB, load DISKPART via W7 cmd prompt, clean the HDD, convert to MBR from GPT, wipe all partitions clean, format them into one partition (instead of the original four), and install Windows 7 (although painstaking slow). Immediately upon first boot I get BSOD and following that I begin bootlooping in to the Windows Advanced Options menu giving me the option to boot into Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, etc. Safe Mode Fails, Start Windows Normally Fails, and Last Known Good Configuration takes me back to the BSOD. So, I threw up my hands and decided to re-install Windows 10. However, now the system doesn't act like it wants to boot to Windows 10 from USB stick. I simply keep geeting a boot loop into Windows Advanced Options Menu. Have I bricked my device? I can still enter the BIOS and the Boot Menu via the Novo button. However, n... Read more
