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.

Hello, I bought a Yoga 710-14ikb and would like to replace the original SSD 256GB by a larger 500GB one. My notebook is quite new (few weeks) and has several original partitions:1. 260 MB2. 197 GB - Windows 10 C: (NTFS)3. 25 GB - Data D: (NTFS)4. 1 GB - Recovery5. 14.15 GB -Windows Recovery6. 1 GB - OEM Recovery I bought a 500GB SSD to replace the original one.As I like the OKR button feature, I would like to keep this functionality. If needed I can buy a "m.2 to usb" case to clone my old SSD first. Questions are:How is it possible to keep this Novo button function with my new SSD? Can this tool be downloaded from Lenovo site?If not how to partitioning the new SSD in a most senseful way? At this notebook Windows 10 Home is installed. But I am quite skilled with old windows versions (vista and before) and old BIOS functions but have no experience with UEFI and windows 10. Hence, I'm surpriced about all this 3 recovery partitions and how to make paritions with UEFI and keep the OKR function Looking foward to read your answers!Sebastian

Dear Lenovo, How can I have both Esc and function keys work normally in Yoga 700? That is, as in any normal computer keyboard where Esc is Esc, and F1 is F1, etc. If I set 'hot key' mode in bios then Esc is normal, but function keys act as hot keys.If I set 'function key' mode in bios then function keys are normal, but Esc is paper display toggle. I don't think it's too much to ask. Best regards.

When I press the F3 key, I need the Yoga 920 to interpret this as "F3" and not "Increase sound volume." In the past, certain Lenovo notebooks had a BIOS setting that let you reconfigure the function keys to do just that. I don't believe the Yoga 920 has this BIOS setting (why don't all Yoga models have a similar BIOS structure is beyond me). I have an excellent Microsoft external keyboard that allows you to lock the function key, simply by pressing "Fn" (a small light turns on in the "Fn" key, similar to the "CapsLk" key.) Any suggestions? It can't be this difficult, can it?

Just got a new Yoga 910. One thing is driving me crazy -- it appears the function keys by default require pressing the Fn button. I don't use the alternate things like airplane mode and speaker volume as much and would prefer to have function keys primary and then press fn keys for the quick keys. There is mention of reversing the fn key in the bios, but under configuration I have no hotkey option. I'm running bios 2JCN39WW which appears to be the latest. How do I switch the hotkey / function key priority so I can use F4 and F2 without holding the fn button?

A:New Yoga 910 - Function Keys without Fn button?

I think that they moved that to the Lenovo Settings application a few BIOS revs ago.  See the link below. The option of enabling function key is missing from BIOS - Yoga 910-13IKBhttps://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht502692

A:Yoga 710 - How restore the Function Keys to defaul...

Hi ab001atl , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
When hotkey mode is disabled, press the Fn key and the appropriate hotkey to access the corresponding hotkey function. (page5)
 
By default, the hotkey functions are accessible by pressing the appropriate hotkey. However, you can disable the hotkey mode in the BIOS setup utility. To disable the hotkey mode:
1 Shut down the computer.
2 Press the Novo button and then select BIOS Setup.
3 In the BIOS setup utility, open the Configuration menu, and change the setting of HotKey Mode from Enabled to Disabled.
4 Open the Exit menu, and select Exit Saving Changes.
 
Context menu provided with right click mouse have corresponding key on traditional keyboards in between the right alt and ctrl keys (may not be available for the yoga due to design) as shift +F10 . 
 
Else onscreen keyboard may help or simply use a key remapping software to assign the task of right click to another key such as this and this.
 
Update us how it would work for you. 
 
Regards

Hi, I have a Lenovo P40 Yoga running on Windows 10. I'm having issues with the fn volume keys not working. All the other fn keys work just fine, but the volume keys do not work. I have noticed that restarting my computer temporarily fixes the issue, but once I hit the "mute" key everything stops working again. If I do not use my "mute" key, the other two increase and decrease volume keys work perfectly fine. Muting my laptop using the volume slider in the Windows toolbar has the same effect.  Thank you

Normally I have to hold down the fn key and then a function key in order to do something. For example I need to hold fn and then click F1 if I want to mute the sound. Today all of a sudden, I did not have to hold down the fn key anymore. This means that the ways fn and the function keys interact have switched. I was wondering why this would have happened out of nowhere and if I should be worried? I have looked all over and I definitely have not accessed the BIOS and fn+esc just changes the screen to paper display.How could I have changed the way fn and the function keys have been working?

Touchpad is working only intermittently. Under Human Interface Devices, I have 2 entries for 12C HID Device. When the pad stops working, one will have a ! in a triangle with a code 10 error. I can uninstall, hard shut down (note: restart does nothing. Hard shut down is required) and have the touchpad back, usually throughout startup. It will disappear again just after startup. Rinse, repeat four or five times, and it will work for maybe a couple of hours. I've removed everything from Startup. I've updated using Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update. I am at the point of considering a factory reset, but I'd rather not do that if anyone has a suggestion? I've been dealing with this about two weeks. Not sure if it was in conjunction with a Windows Update, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised. Note: If I uninstall both 12C HID Device entries, rather than uninstalling the second entry, the first reappears with the warning sign.

Since upgrading the arrow keys no longer work. You can only scroll by moving the mouse itself.

Even though the Function Keys are Enabled in BIOS, we still have to depress the Fn key together with the specific function key (f1-f12) when using function keys on host computers accessed through Citrix/gotomypc.  This is a problem we experience only with our HP laptops, not the Acers or Lenovos, or the Dell desktops used remotly.  There is some type of problem in the way HP send the function key signals.  They'll work, but only if we depress the Fn key at the bottom left of the keyboard.  It's a pain.  I called HP and they immediately blamed it on either Citrix or our host computer applications, but the fact that we do not experience this issue with any of the other devices we use certainly indicate it's an HP issue.   Any ideas?

I purchased Dell Inspiron 5558 (with Windows 10) just two months ago (Nov 2015). Everything was working fine. However, recently I started to notice an annoying thing with the function keys F11 and F12 for reducing and increasing the brightness respectively. 

Without using the Fn key (next to Windows key), if I hit F11 it was reducing the brightness and F12 was increasing the brightness earlier - as expected. Now, sometimes, the laptop monitor goes to sleep mode the moment I hit F11 or F12. I have to press the power button again to wake it up. This behavior is very off and on and not consistent.

Did any settings get changed? How to fix this? Please help.

FYI - I have not changed the BIOS settings from default which could be multimedia. I can say this because other multimedia keys in the same row behave normally (even when this strange behavior is noticed in F11 and F12).

Thanks,
Shashi

A:Function keys for Brightness control (F11, F12) do not work as expected

Hello Shashi,
The settings for those FN keys are handled by the Dell Quickset Utility, and later the Dell Command Configuration application, so any changes you would want to make would be done in that application.  
I would suggest going into that application and seeing if you can change the settings.   Putting a system to sleep is one of the functions available so perhaps the configuration has changed.   If you want additional help please click on my Dell Todd username and send me a private message with the Dell Service Tag of the system and I'll see if I can help.   Please keep all discussions and troubleshooting here in this thread so that others, with the same questions or problems, can see what is done to resolve.
