Strange mouse pointer behaviour when working in background - Lenovo Ideapad 510S 14ISK

Q: Strange mouse pointer behaviour when working in background - Lenovo Ideapad 510S 14ISK

I am experiencing strange mouse pointer behaviour after my laptop has been running for a while and a program is working in the background. The mouse pointer is displayed in a very low resolution, while jumping up to another part of the screen. So usually, the mouse cursor looks like this: But when the problem occurs, it looks like this (and jumps up to another part of the screen): As mentioned, the problem only occurs after my laptop has been running for a while (this may take a day, but sometimes only an hour) but when it does, it keeps occuring untill I restart. This has been happening since I bought the system about two months ago. System: Lenovo ideapad 510S14ISKOperating system: Windows 10 I already tried:- updating my drivers (using Lenovo Companion)- reinstalling windows (while keeping my files)- uninstalling Lenovo System Interface Foundation as recommended here- unchecking the box "enhance pointer precision", also as recommended here The problem occurs both with my external mouse plugged in and plugged off. Any ideas what might be causing this problem?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Maybe related to this issue, maybe not: I also noticed a strange resolution in a few other places. For example, in the image below you can see that the text in the left box is displayed much sharper than that in the right box. This occurs also after my laptop has just restarted and is of course much less anoying. Nonetheless, I thought it would be interesting to mention as the two issues might be related.

Hi, I've recently bought a 510s-14ISK, and am regularly getting timeout errors when browsing the web. Seems to mainly be when something is being streamed or downloaded i.e. Spotify. Spotify continues to work fine, but all websites will timeout, then refresh and (mostly) load up as expected. Any one else having the same issues? I've already exchanged the device for a new one and it's happening on both. Happens in all browsers. Doesn't happen on other devices on the network, so must be something wrong with the device.  Have tried https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht502846 to no avail, and the two emails I've had with support about installing new wireless and chipset drivers haven't helped either, and the Lenovo Solutions Centre hardware scan doesn't report any issues.

There have been some security problems with this machine, and I would like to rewrite the bios.  As it happens it also needs to be updated anyway.I can open the self extracing .exe file, 0vcn29ww.exe, and it gives me a directory structure.  But what do I do with it?   I've tried running this .exe file in wine.  I get a dialog with a button to continue.  I push that then it crashes with a "string too long" error.  I've read on some forums that one should make a bootable USB, but with what image?Ah so how does one do a bios update for a 510S-14ISK that is running Linux?

Hello everyone, I've been reading several posts related to mouse pointer issues, but none of them has been helpful so far. Every 5 minutes, my mouse pointer randomly disappears while I'm using it; it's not completely invisible though as some parts of the background such as buttons, tabs or scroll bars darken as I scroll over them, as if they were being selected by the pointer. To bring it back, I usually move the mouse around (or my finger on the touchpad) randomly for approximately 5-10 seconds. That usually does the trick. That problem occurs on a regular basis, when using the touchpad or the mouse, and for no particular reason. My computer is brand-new, and I've been having that problem since day one; it's become really tiresome because it keeps interrupting whatever I'm doing.  I'd be really grateful if anyone could help me with this; thank you for your thoughts.

Hi -  I hope someone can help to identify what the issue is here, please? Bought a 510s-14 laptop back in June and and been using it fine until a few weeks back. When using the browser (Google Chrome), these 'squares' as can be seen from the photos below come up on the screen. I then have to shut the browser down and open it up again and it seems fine until it randomly happens again the same day or two days later. There is no pattern and I'm not doing anything in particular when it happens. Run the Lenovo diagnostic tool, which found nothing and everything is upto date on the machine. Any ideas, please?     

A:510S-14ISK Laptop - Very strange 'squares' on the screen

That may be a glitch in Chrome from a few years back resurfacing that involved using the GPU for its 2D Canvas rendering, which is enabled by default. The first thing I would do is go to https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/hu/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/500-series/510s-14isk/80tk/download..., and install the latest "display drivers and Video Graphics" drivers for your system if not already installed, because updated drivers may resolve the problem.  If not, you can open Chrome, and in the address bar type or paste:  chrome://flags/   which will open a page with some of Chrome's experimental features, locate Accelerated 2D canvas (should be 3rd one down) and click the Disable button below it. Best of luck,

Hello everybody! I have a Lenovo 510S. The keyboard touchpad does not click at first; meaning the mouse cannot be moved on the first touch if I use the keyboard. It works on the second touch. I understood the issue has been solved for a different type of laptop by changing the window registry (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/Lenovo-G500-touchpad-no-click-first/td-...). However, I don't know which registry should be changed here for my 510S. Could you help me out here? Thanks a lot!

My problem consists of the following: - When I turn on the computer the mouse pointer behaves correctly.- After a few minutes of use, when I give the order to open a web in chrome (for example) the image of the pointer starts to look less sharp, but still works correctly.- The biggest problem comes a few minutes later when it starts to move each time it is loading something, and it starts to appear and disappear. Then using the PC is a nightmare.  I have updated all the drivers and I have even made a complete format but the problem continues.Any solution or someone who has the same problem?I'm desperate.

Hello everyone, At a random time, when the cursor changes from "normal" to "working in background" it becomes pixelated and jumps away a few centimeters and then returns back to original position when loading is complete.The only way to work around this is if I make a change in mouse settings, like "enable pointer shadow" and then revert it back as it was. I am on an Ideapad 720s 14IKB running Windows 10 x64 Version 10.0 Build 16299 Is anyone else having the same issue?

Hi,

I use win xp pro service pack 2.
I don't know how or when (little brothers) but my mouse pointer goes to the "working in background" graphic from startup.
I noticed in task manager, in the processes list that regsrv32.exe keeps blinking on and off. Which would be the reason for the pointer problem.
This happens in safe mode as well.
I ran two diff online virus scans which said i'm clear. Ran adaware. Ran yahoo anti-spy which removed something.
I've opened hijackthis and things seem ok except for a bho that won't fix or delete.
I've run CWShredder, which said it removed VX2.Look2Me. After restart it said the same thing. I then used a symantec tool for look2me removal. Said I was clear. Even tried manual removal steps. Nothing there. CWShredder still says it removes it each time I run it.

I have nothing unusual in my startup list. No regsrv32.exe listed. No sign of W32/Rbot-GM worm.
I tried searching for regsrv32.exe on my computer. The search thing must be faulty because it finds nothing. In my system32 folder though i have the proper microsoft file.

The last thing I tried was a windows update. 14 files were listed. After restart, automatic update still came up asking to download and install 4 files.
I did it again, and again, and again. The 4 files won't install.

despair.
pls help

Wondering what RAM modules people have upgraded their Lenovo Ideapad 510s (80UV001BUS) with. Looks like it only has one slot and is only upgradeable to 16GB. What about speed and latency? Crucial has different speeds and latency listed. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/ideapad-510s-(14-inch) It has ones at 2133MHz, 2400MHz and 2666Mhz and latencies from 15, 16 and 17. Only a $14 difference between their cheapest 2133MHz and their most expensive 2666MHz. Newegg sells other modules at the 2666MHz speed that Crucial says is the max that seem compatible. Patriot Viper 16GB DDR4 2666 PV416G266C8S at CL18 and HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4 2666 HX426S15IB2/16 at CL15. The numbers make the HyperX look like the best for this laptop with it being $14 more than Crucial's fastest module. Newegg also has 2800MHz and 3000MHz offerings too. Does this chipset support those speeds? The 2800MHz being made by Patriot and the 3000MHz made by G.SKILL. The latency on the G.SKILL module is CL16, so pretty good but considerably more expensive. $27 more than Crucial's fastest and $13 more than HyperX's fastest and its on sale right now (retails at $180.99). Whats the fastest RAM the Intel HM170 chipset can support and will this laptop allow it? Intel shows that the i7-7500U supports up to 32GB memory size and DDR4-2133, LPDDR3-1866, DDR3L-1600 memory types, yet Crucial says it can support 2666MHz, feeling confused. My main goal is to p...

Looking into buying the Lenovo Ideapad 510s, I see "Up to 8GB" listed as supported memory. However, I've done some research and some Lenovo laptops, while they also only support 8GB of memory officially, can be and have been safely upgraded to 16 GB of RAM. My question is: Is this true of the 510s? The CPU specifications page from Intel for the 6200U/6500U both say 16 GB is no problem, and Crucial even has a 16GB dimm listed as "guaranteed compatible" for this model--I'm not sure, though, if this means it will work but only recognize 8 GB or if 16 GB is truly Ok. Is there any reason 16 GB could not be used? Perhaps some motherboard memory controller limitation? I would love to have some input on this before deciding on whether or not to purchase this laptop. Thanks!

Hi,  I?ve had my laptop for about 2 nearly 3 years now. About two days ago it stopped working for some reason. When I looked into it the WiFi adaptor (Intel Core i3) was for some reason disabled and despite having admin access, it would not  enable it successfully, even when I tried it just remained disabled and trouble shooter just states there is an issue with the WiFi adaptor and it cannot solve it.i have so far tried the network connections, troubleshooter and the device manager but both are not working. Is there a relatively simple solution that I?ve overlooked?

Hey there, Both hinges of my Ideapad 300-14ISK are now broken after 6 months of light use. The right one started to freeze after less than 2 months from the purchase date. It has resulted in breaking the LCD cover as a result as I opened or closed the lid. About a month later, the left hinge did the same. I can't open or close the lid at all now. I am now looking for a replacement for those hinges since I gave up on trying to resolve this with the support team although it is still in the warranty (however I bought it from outside the US. They're claiming that's why they can't help me). The Lenovo website has 2 parts for the hinges for this model but I can't understand the difference between them. First one is "5H50K14044 - HINGE L+R LIMR L300-14IBR" while the second one is "5H50K14032 - HINGE L+R L300-14IBR". I can't figure out the difference between both parts. The only difference in the name is the "LIMR" word in the description of the first one. Does anyone understand what the difference between both parts is? Thanks!

Hello,  I've got a problem with my newly bougt Lenovo Ideapad 500 14ISK. It randomly displays signs of shutting off/overheating. The screen turns black (not off but just like its not receiving signal) an de audio stops working. Only solution is to force shut off the laptop and restart.  I bought the new laptop two monts ago. Of those two months i'vo only had the chance to work on it for a few weeks due to this problem. I've read the forums when the first problems started acting up.  I've installen the new intel drivers, did a bios update, did a full system sofware and hardware check, and obviously found no problems. After giving up and returning it to the store, they said it should be a hardware issue, if the laptop just radomly shutts of (like overheating). It took them three weeks to send my laptop back.  Once i got it back, i read the reppair report, and guess what? they didn't found any hardware issues, so they installed a clean version of windows and did a bios update. After working on it for an hour in the universities library the laptop turned black again.  So if anyone can give me some advice that would be greatly appreciated, since the repair man of Lenovo also don't understand my problem.  Some info;doesnt matter if battery power or net power.Doesnt matter which programs i am using, it will juust randomly shut off. I did the intel upgrades listed on Lenovo's forums and the latest ones, still the same p...
