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, 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).

Hello all. I am about to buy the Legion Y520-15IKBN. It's the i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060  version. I have 2 questions though before I buy it.  1. I have a Seagate Barracuda 5TB 2,5" HDD, a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 500GB and a HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4-2400 laptop RAM. Can I install them on this model or if I open it it will void the warranty?  2. The laptop comes with no OS. I have Windows 10 on my desktop PC. Since Windows are connected to the Outlook account (I think), will I be able to install and activate them on the laptop or I have to buy new? Thank you very much for any answers

Hello, I'm an owner of Y520 that I bought less than a month ago and in the past few days, I have been experiencing a strange keyboard issue. At seemingly random times, several random keys will become completely unresponsive.The keys will work fine all day except for a few minutes here and there. For example, my 'e' 'g' 'h' '8' '9' and 'FN' keys just stopped working for about 3 minutes, now they are obviously working fine again. Sometimes it's for more than a few minutes and can be a nuisance.I've also noticed sometimes holding the key down for a while will fix it. I'm wondering if there's some sort of fix that I can try when this happens so that I don't have to take it to an authorized service center.Furthermore, I've noticed that there are more people having the same issue with the same keys as there are videos about it on Youtube. I bought my laptop in Europe but currently live in Canada so I am a bit worried if it is possible to find an authorized repair center. Thanks for any help.

First of all I am sorry for my english but i don't know what to do.I've bought new lenovo legion y520 laptop month or two ago (with i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050 2 GB VRAM, 6 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD) and my gaming experience is pretty bad so far.I tried some games and my fps are the same like on my old desktop PC (more than 6 years old) with i3-2130, amd radeon HD7770 1 GB VRAM and 8 GB RAM. I've tested for example Assassin's creed black flag (same settings on both devices) and my fps were nearly the same on both (around 45 FPS).Then I've tried Battlefield 3, Subnautica and few other games but my biggest issue is with Star Wars Battlefront 2. I checked the minimal system requirements and I should be able to run it quite well atleast on low settings but the game is stuttering so terribly. It is unplayable. But my old PC that don' t enven have minimum requirements runs it better and pretty smooth with MSI afterburner keepin fps at 30-50.I didn' t expect any wonders from this laptop (smooth 40 fps is fine for me) but I've expected that I'll be able to play atleast some older games pretty well. The question is: Is it normal or something is not allright with my laptop?I tried installing all drivers from lenovo website (install them manually), reinstall windows 10, celan install windows 10, find newest Nvidia drivers, change graphic driver settings but nothing helped.I've also noticed that while playing star wars battlefornt 2 on old desktop my graphic card usage is quite stable but while playing o...

While recording videos using the Lenovo Legion Y520 built in Camera with default Camera Application, the Camera/Camera Application keeps freezing.  Usually I can record one long video. After that, the Camera/Camera Application freezes after a minute to two minutes of recording use. Once the issue happens, I have to power cycle the notebook and even then the issue sometimes happens immediately. I tired using a third party application and the same thing keeps happening, which is leading me to assume it's probably the hardware and not that default Camera Application. I have done all the latest Windows and Lenovo updates to this point. Please help if possible.
