Q: starting up a new Lenovo S340

Hi all,I bought a S340 this morning and trying to set it up. When I switched it on I got a voice offering to help me set up the ideapad.I selected the Keyboard and then I am trying to connect to the internet on my WiFi.I am asked to complete the Network Security Key. But when I try and input on the keyboard nothing appears on the screen.Tried a couple of times and thendecided to skip the network setup and move ahead.The next screen I get says: "Who's going to use ths PC"When I try and input my name nothing apears on the screen. Have a I inadvertantly pressed some key that has disabled the keyboard??Is there some way to fix this issue?Your help and advice would be apreciated.ThanksMukund

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.)

What exactly is the below download which is found on the download page for my notebook (IdeaPad S340)  :"Lenovo Energy Management and is supported on S340-14IWL, S340-15IWL, S340-15IWL Touch"  ? Here is the download page for my notebook:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-s-series-netbooks/s340-15iw... and this is the webpage for the actual download:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/IDEAPAD-S-SERIES-NETBOOKS/S340-15IW... The download page is vague on details about what Lenovo Energy Management does exactly.  It is listed  under Power Management only as "Recommended".  What exactly does it do?  And is it totally nessasary?   If I did a clean install of Windows 10 Home should I install this, and why?

The sound with both speakers/ headphones on my laptop is constantly making "popping" sounds, and sometimes it even stutters - very aggressively and without putting any load on the laptop - even with a simple mp3 playback.I've tried EVERYTHING - Realtek / Lenovo / Windows drivers, uninstalled Windows, wasted so much precious time on it.This is the second damaged unit I get from lenovo in a month's time. I hope they can provide a quick solution for this problem, or else I'm returning this laptop and never buying / recommending Lenovo ever again.

Hi everyone!I've had a Lenovo G710 laptop for a long time and have had no issues with it. But today when I for the second time booted it to edit a video for a good friend of mine the laptop won't start. The Lenovo logo shows up, but after that nothing happens. When I hold down the power button and reboot it "the hard way" It says something along the lines of "automatic repair in progress". After the laptop has been on that screen for a while it goes over to a blue page where I can choose to either restart the laptop (which just sets me back to square one, the screen just showing the Lenovo logo) or I can choose to go to advanced alternatives. From there I can choose either to: "Continue and go to windows 10", "Use a USB-stick, internet or DVD recovery disk to boot", "go to (even more) advanced settings" or simply turn the laptop off. the first and last two of these has been tried without success. What do I do? There is really isn't an option for me to reset it. Cause I have programs and several projects that aren't backed up.

Hello everyone!!! My first post on this forum. I actually have a problem on my Lenovo G40-30 (Model name: 80FY). It is just a year old, but it is not starting up. Last time I checked, the hard drive was not detected. I then did a power drain, but it did not work. I did all sorts of various things, but none succeeded. What should I do? I think the main problem is at the hard drive, either defective or not actually detected. And I actually don't know how to detect the hard drive (Noobish). Thanks.

Hi there, Another issue with my yoga 730. I used to use Vantage a lot and now when I try to open it, it immediatly closes. Tried reinstalling and no joy. Any solutions? Thanks.Best,B.

A:Lenovo Vantage not starting

Have you tried the below?  Sorry if you did this already.
 
Uninstall Lenovo Vantage and Lenovo System Interface Foundation. After reboot install Lenovo Vantage from Microsoft store again, but not Lenovo System Interface Foundation. After opening Lenovo Vantage, there will be a link to latest Lenovo System Interface Foundation , download(should be version 1.1.16.0 or current version) and install it. 
 
Also to uninstall Lenovo System Interface Foundation see below

Hi, my laptop is one year old and a month ago it started acting weirdly. It's not starting if i have shut it down recently  (less than 6 hours maybe) and i keep on hard shutting it down and trying to switch it on again with no luck, i can hear the fans working and the power button is lit in blue as usual but other than that is just a black screen no matter how long I wait, and if I waited for 10 mins the laptop gets carzily hot. I had a way in dealing with this by trying after an hour or so after trying to switch on and hard switch of if not booting for 3 or 4 times and it would boot normally eventually. Now the gap is increasing and it's becoming worse. I need urgent help please and sorry for the long post I'm trying to be as accurate as possible.

Hello everyone, my problems with my y50-70 started back in 2016 when it started shutting down suddenly while im using it then it restarts on its own and works for like 2 hours and so on. It kept happenning for like 4 days then it went off and didnt want to restart. It was still under warranty so i sent it back to lenovo center in germany and they diagnosed a problem with the motherboard and changed it. It worked perfectmy untill 4 moths ago and the problem started again : if i leave the pc plugged in to the charger it starts on its own ( it doesnt do that if i disconnect the charger ) + it restarts on its own while im using it, sometimes it does it over and over again without reaching the desktop screen. I ran a scan testing the memory and the battery and the cpu ... and the result was : no hardware problem. I reinstalled my windows 8.1 64x and the problem dissappeared for like 3 months then it came back. Now my laptop doesnt start and even while trying to refresh windows it stops during the process. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem please.

Hi JerryLoh,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
I believe that your immediate concern right now is to get your data out of the harddrive.
 
Removing the drive and slaving it on a harddrive enclosure then connecting it on another machine can help.
Booting the computer with a live rescue media such as here may also be an option as well as to check if the harddrive itself is still ok and readable.
 
Once you have backed up your files then restart the machine tapping FN + F2 to access the BIOS and check if the harddrive is still being detected. You can load the defaults of the BIOS too and save.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards

Hi there. I've posted a couple of times before about my G505s not starting. I eventually managed to get it started and have used it for the last two weeks. When I've finished I've been using the sleep mode and it's started everytime from sleep. It failed again after using shutdown and so I decided to remove and clean the fan and re-apply the thermal paste as someone had suggested. I've done that and am now back to square one as it won't now start. I'd appreciate any suggestions to try to sort out this problem. Kind regards David

I tried to find an answer and whatever I tried, I can't get the Pen app to start. The pen works but the app where you can change the sensitivity etc doesn't work.The wacom service is running, I de-installed the apps, reinstalled the apps, both the Lenovo as the Wacom version but if I start one of them it just doesn't seem to do anything. No error, no flash of a program, nothing.I'm pretty handy with computers but a bit out of clues as I don't get why the app doesn't start since my pen works, is connected etc. Of course I downloaded latest drivers for the laptop but still no luck.Hope someone has some other things I can try so I can access the pens sensitivity etc settings.
