I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 100-14IBD 80RK002YMJ and noticed that middle part of the laptop (just under the touchpad) where the SD Card slot is, does not contain an SD Card holder dummy. Usually, in my previous experience, there is usually a plastic SD Card dummy in that place but when I opened the packaging, I noted that the SD Card dummy is not there. Rather, it was just an open slot. May I check if this is the case for Lenovo Ideapads or is mine a packaging defect? If this is the case, is there any compatible accessory which I can buy to slot in the hole? Thanks SSD Card Dock?

Hello dear community, recently I bought myself a Lenovo ideapad 305. Mainly for office purposes, however the fact that it has a Nvidia 820m as a secondary graphics card is a nice feature, since I like to play games from time to time. Since my games aren't the most demanding either, they work just fine as long as I use the 820m on it. They do lag considerably using the Intel Graphics Card. So, the thing is, I am considering whether to upgrade to Windows 10, and one central question is: Will the switchable graphics work? You know, my parents taught me to "ALWAYS have the latest drivers on your computer!" so earlier today I went ahead and downloaded the latest driver for the 820m from the nvidia website. Unfortunately, my parents hadn't told me that that's not how it works with hybrid graphic pcs. Apparently if you have two graphics card in one pc only the drivers from the manufacturer will work. That explains why my game suddenly started lagging after the driver update (even THOUGH I had it set to use the nvidia card on the nvidia control panel). I went back to the original driver via the onekey recovery partition now, and it works fine just like before. HOWEVER that means I would need a driver directly from Lenovo that makes this switchable thing work under Windows 10. Is there? If so, does it work? Any experiences? I need to decide this rather quickly, what with work and also the free upgrade period ending rather soon. Thanks a lot in advance!Gre... Read more

When it occure nothing is responding (dislay show some artifacts, noise on audio output) - I'm only able to reset computer by holding power button. It's really annoying because there are days when it doesn't appear and I can't find any common factor of all of this crashes. I'm wondering if I should return computer to seller but I can't afford for delay in my work and I'm trying to figure out what will eliminate or "hide" this problem. Can someone observed similar issue? Maybe this is some driver fault (report  from lenovo solution center attached)?Thans for any sugestions. Regards,Thomas

Hi I was trying to buy an ssd for my Yoga500 but I'm not really sure which ssd to pick, I dont have a big budget to spend for it. I have an external  disk connected - 1TB HDD via usb enclosure so I dn't really need 1TB ssd (too expensive), also I have WDC WD10S21X-24R1BT0-SSHD-8GB inside the Yoga, so I'll have 2 TB disks USB connected to it so I'll be fine with the amount of storage. Main thing is to getn an ssd to the laptop to make it a bit "quicker" as sometimes because of the hdd inside its freezing.I was thingking about 2 options: 1) samsung evo 850 250 GB( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-inch-Solid-State-Drive/dp/B00P736UEU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1483971... )2) sandisk ssd plus 480 GB( https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-PLUS-535MB-2-5-Inch-Internal-x/dp/B01F9G46Q8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid... ) I'm more likely to buy a bigger one, its almost the same price.What you think? which one is better? obviously if its possible to change to sandisk (im not sure).If you have any other propositions or suggestions, all are welcome. Thanks

Hello,all! About 7 months ago I have brought a Lenovoy Yoga 500-14IBD which has been working fine until now. Now I have an unrepsonsive portion of the screen. It is very wierd. I will illustrate with a screenshot:?As you can see, on the right side of the screen I draw some lines using touch screen which are interrupted on a very well delimieted portion. If I draw the line from left to right, when it enters that portion of the screen, it doesen't write anything, but it works normally when I get past that region and it continues to draw the line. To be more precise the touchscreen doesn't work in the given area:?I have calibrated my screen using windows 10 settings, but it didnt' help. The problem is there even on Ubuntu. I am guessing it is a hardware problem. Should I take my laptop to my warranty service or is it a different kind of problem? Thank you in advance for your answers!

Hi,I have been searching for a solution for months without any fix. I have already sent the laptop 3 times to warranty service, display was replaced twice, but the problem still continues. My reclamation was canceled once..... the statement was that it is software issue, but i could not belive that. It just starts after a while of usage, than it just increases intensity untill it is insane. I am posting the issue as a photo, so it is easier to imagine the problem. I found several facts:1. The screen flickers extremly after turning on the windows high contrast mode (black or white does not matter).2. The screen flickers sometimes when scrolling through certain pages (searching internet, word documets)3. Screen stops fleshing for a while after changing the possition of display (it is yoga so you can get a lot of angles)4. When plugged via HDMI cable to TV, flickering continued only on the laptop display!5. Lowering brightness seems to lower the intensity of flicekring (more time before it blinks again).6. Flickering is not happening in BIOS, but immediately after showing windows login screen. As for drivers: All updated, all tried, all checked through lenovo online diagnostics even display and everything is correct. Display drivers reinstalled, display drivers checked. I have tried to change auto-brigtness options, turning off display drivers for both graphic cards, windows reinstalled 3-times through one key recovery and even throug regular factory settings reco...

I've had this lenovo ideapad 510 for 2 months and it has been nothing but trouble. I've done too many fixes for it for just 2 months but now the fan noise is really unaccceptable. With just 3 tabs open it sounds like a jet taking off and I cannot use it while watching a movie on TV because it's too loud. I have been here on this forum for over a week trying to get a solution but am getting totally ignored. I guess Lenovo's customer service is as good as their products.Please post a fix that works, otherwise let's arrange for me to return this for 50% refund so I can get a laptop that actaully works. I've read the problem is that Lenovo is not compatible with Windows 10 and that is why it's a nigthmare.Why did you release this product with these confirmed problems?1. Touchpad sometimes goes crazy and can't be used2. Unnacceptable fan noise3. Memory and Disk running at 100%I feel cheated as I'm doing more technical work to rid this laptop of problems than actaully being able to browse the net or watch anything. As mentioned with only 3 tabs open, it sounds like a jet trying to take off. Bought this at the end of October

Hi to evreyone! So recently I bought a brand new Lenovo Z710 (i7-4700mq, intel hd 4600 and nvidia gt745m). I then installed windows 8.1 (genuine) and all the drivers on the cd that came with the machine. But it seems there is a big problem with the graphics card. Nvidia gt745 seems like its not there. The Geforce Experience and nvidia control panel fail to recognize it, although it's there on Windows Driver Manager.When I try to load a game (WOW) it crashes on the loading screen. "Display driver has stopped responding..." bubble appears and a minute or so afterwards, there is a bsod. The game works on the integrated card (intel hd 4600) when nvidia is disabled or its driver is uninstalled.I tried reinstalling the drivers, downloading and installing the recent ones, removing all graphic drivers and reintalling them in different order, tried safe mode, changed some bios settings, but still nothing happened.Could this be any kind of driver compatibility issue or simply a windows thing, or is it a hardware problem? Could the nvidia be faulty or the laptop itself? I want to try anything before turning it back to where I bought it for a look... So your ideas will be vastly appreciated. Thanks!

Good morning everybody,

I have bought my laptop 1 year ago and everything was going ok, i installed many programs (Adobe illustrator) and games (PES2011) and many others and i faced no problems.
One day, my cousin used the laptop to watch a new movie but he forgot to charge the battery during that time until the laptop shuts down alone due to empty battery.
On the next day, i tried to power on my laptop it starts normally until it reached the Windows 7 logo it automatically shuts down. I tried again for several times with the same result then a blue screen with white writings on it was displayed on the screen (harddisk failure).
I bought a new Toshiba 500GB HDD and burned a new Windows 7 Ultimate x64 DVD to install a fresh new copy of it but i have faced the following:
1- when I power on the laptop it works normally.
2- I press F12 to choose the device to boot from (Boot from DVD)
3- It starts normally and a windows 7 screen appears with a loading bar. It is filled quickly in the first time then a new screen appears with a loading bar starts to fill but after around 75% of the loading bar is filled the laptop shuts down.
I tried to restart it for several times with the same result.

I make the following points to try to restart the laptop but always with the same result:
1- Remove the new HDD and then insert it
2- Remove the Rams and then insert them
3- Remove the battery and then insert it.

Hi guys, this is my first post in these forums.Now, I searched a lot for a solution to my problem, but now I'm creating this thread.I got a Lenovo Ideapad Y500, and it worked really well for like a month, then I started hearing this really loud whirring noise and some vibration coming from the left side of the laptop, near the heat vents. I shut my laptop off and when I turned it backon It was gone.But now the noise is back and whenever I reboot my laptop is goes away but then it comes back after a while. Also, whenever I run the dust removal thingy in the Lenovo energy management app, It gets really loud then it goes away.I don't really feel lots of air coming out from the vent on the leftside of the laptop. I think it might be a fan problem but my laptop stays around 45-65 Celsius mostly. I don't know how hot it runs when I play games, though. Any help on this unnatural whirring sound that starts after a while is really appreciated.

I have a laptop which is mentioned above. Had it for almost 3 years now and suddenly shut off while I was using it. It would not charge nor it would turn on. Tried the power reset thing which holds the power button for multiple seconds but to no avail.  Then went to a service center saying motherboard burned up. Such a shame since I really like the laptop and I spent  lot of money for it since I bought the i7 core version. I was hesitant to buy other brands before actually purchasing this lenovo laptop. I have a netbook (not a lenovo brand) which I had for 7 years now. But my almost 1000dollars z510 laptop broke and it hasn't been a FULL 3 YEARS?  WTH LENOVO! And motherboard replacement is VERY expensive. I'm really STRESSED about this. And ALL my files are there. Photos, work documents etc. I can;t stressed enough about how disappointed I am.

Hello,  i just bought a Lenovo Ideapad 700-15Isk with an additional 250gb ssd. So, i used a flash drive to install win 10, but then when i was updating the drivers, downloading them from the Lenovo support site, after one of them was updated the laptop restarted and then the boou menu appeared. I pressed to boot from the ssd, but nothing, a black screen and then back to the boot menu. I tried with every other option LANs, win flash drive, the other 1tb hdd but nothing worked. How can i fix this?  Thank you.

dear sir, my name is nikhil in my laptop z510 ideapad i am facing battery problem it is not showing correct battery % and also not show batterey low warning message and it is stable at one position 99% please sir help me out from this problem .many of them his having this same problem please give some battery firmware update so to resolve this problem.it is not a hardware problem because it started from two days before previously it is working fine but now it is not working          I purchased the z510 last  july and while the battery life wasn't great on it now it has stopped working altogether. I have tried every conceivable fix for it from the forums here and none has worked. The problem that I am having is that the battery is stuck at 99% while charging and when it is off charge it will stay on for half an hour and the shut off hard without warning, it has caused me to lose progress in work. The battery gauge reset is no longer working either as it was on for hours and just kept showing 99%. I would appreciate a response back. This seems to be a problem with this make of laptop as far as Ican see.













Solved!

I have read older topics enough but haven't found a solution. Laptop is very quiet in idle mode but every time when I use browser (Firefox) and open a new tab the CPU fan starts spinning which is very annoying. I'm using Windows 10 and I have turned Windows Defender off. Also I flashed the latest BIOS (E5CN58WW) but so far nothing changed. Temps are around 35 while I post this but seems that SpeedFan can't control the fan. Only thing I noticed that when I open a new page / tab, CPU usage increases from 4 % to over 50 % depending on the page. Please, is there any solution for this?
