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.)

I am really interested in the Y530 model with the 144 hz screen but I found almost no information which panel Lenovo uses - only that it should be brighter than the 60 hz model with 300 nits. I would be really interested to know if it has pwm, cause I am sensitive to that and also what about the colors (AdobeRGB / sRGB)

I own a Y530-15ICH with 60Hz Panel and GTX1050Ti and I am wondering if there is a way to upgrade my panel to 144Hz one. Either DIY or official replacement service (if there is).

I bought the laptop very recently about a month ago. One week ago i noticed that there is a gap between the display and frame. I went to the service center and theyput two sided tape to stick it.  I came back home and the camera section was overheating and the gap appeared again. I don't know if they can fix it or not. It's a very bad quality product to me. Did anyone face any issue like this? Thanks

Hi all,I want to change my y510p to a new one.I liked Legion Y530.I know that only Windows 10 is officially supported. But I do not want Windows 10, for me it is not an operating system, it is a virus.Someone already installed on Y530 Win 7 or Win 8.1? Is it  generally possible without a lot of problems?

Hi, i just bought the laptop from a retailer 2 days back. 1) I did a GPU stress test on Heaven Benchmark 4.0 and attached the results. The bench mark score is horrible. ( the FPS and GPU clock results are less than average , Nvidia settings were set to prefer Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050TI GPU and set for max performance ;not sure why? ) i also used GPU-Z to monitor the GPU clock speed and Nvidia 1050 TI has not been able to run further than 200 MHZ. 2) aside from this, the display will increase brightness suddenly then dims back to original brightness. ( adapative brightness is not ON in power plans btw)  i have done a Vantage hardware scan and nothing abnormal came up.Is there some defect with the GPU or related?

I bought the Legion Y530 on July 2018, yesterday during normal use, no gaming, windows asked me to restart due to automatic updates, I selected wait then about 10 min after that all of sudden the screen turned off and the computer restarted but the screen did not come back, not even the Lenovo logo is being displayed. I was able to connect an external monitor and log in on windows, then tried to remove the installed windows update and the laptop screen came alive again but the computer restarted and the screen died again. This is really bad for $1000 laptop. Actually I can see something on the screen, it is like it is with 3% of light. Very very dark images. To get even more worse, I bought the laptop in USA but I am from Brazil, where there is no Lenovo international support. This might be a sistematic issue of this model. There is another guy with the same problem, see below:https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments/9ean09/legion_y530_black_screen/ Not sure what to do to get help.

My Legion Y530 touchpad has been halting constantly, for up to a minute each time, for the last few days (I've had it for less than a week). I've tried installing updated Synaptics drivers (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds104007), which did not have an effect. Also, the touchpad does not show up in the Device Manager (all of the "Firmware" entries show generic "Device Firmware" without any label). I've installed a dual boot Windows-Ubuntu system following the guide here (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops-Knowledge-Base/Installing-Ubuntu-18-04-on-the-Legion-Y53...), but the problem predates the new installation, and also occurs under both operating systems. Help!

Hi,
 
Welcome to the forums.  Do you have Lenovo Vantage installed?  Under hardware settings is there something that looks like the below?  I have that option on my Thinkpad and I believe my nephew had it on his Ideapad too.

Hello everyone.I was wanting to play some game on my Lenovo when the screen froze. I manually shutdown my computer and ride to turn it back on. I got stuck on the automatic repair failed error message. So I searched for a lot of solutions which didn?t work so I decided to réinitialise windows because it has only been two weeks since I got it so it?s not a big deal. When it was done that?s when the problem started. When I press the power button, it displays the legion logo and i hear the fans and the keyboard LED?s light up but then it shutsdown and does the same loop ove and over again. I don?t know what to do.

Hello everyone, I just bought a brand new Legion Y530 (like three days ago) from the official website and I realized that when the fans are spinning, there is a clicking noise coming from the right fan. It's even louder when i m tilting the bottom of the laptop or when the fans are spinning slowly.I just contacted the support but there was no "fan" section so I just posted it under the "Plastic problem" section. Do you guys have any idea how I could solve this issue? Because I'm pretty sure this problem will require a send back and I really don't have the time to wait for a month for my laptop to come back (and I'm pretty sure they won't send me a new fan so I really need your help). I wanted to show you a record of this noise but I can not upload a file on this page so I used SoundCloud instead Here is the link : https://soundcloud.com/artege/sound_problem_y530/ Thank you, C.T.

Under a 100% CPU load, the computer will freeze. This does not happen during gaming, as gaming does not push the 8750H to max load. I notice this mostly compiling programs in Linux (Manjaro, Kernel 4.19). However, I've also had the computer freeze under heavy CPU load in Windows as well. I'd rather not do an RMA for this laptop. Are there any solutions? Am I able to reseat the battery to solve this issue, or some similar fix? Is my battery incapable of delivering the requireing instantaneous power? Please help.

Heyo!So just got my Y530, and it's a great laptop, but there is an audio driver issue. When I start playing media, there is a 3 second delay between starting a video playback for example and the actual sound starting to play. The audio itself is not delayed, it's simply muted for 3 seconds. Now from what I understand, this is an issue with the Realtek driver, there is some sort of sleep function that kicks in after 10 seconds (that's what I found the default value to be on the HP forums), and it needs a few seconds to wake up again. I haven't even found a temporary solution, tried reinstalling drivers of course, and all the usual things, but nothing worked.Here is a link to the HP forums where they talk about the same issue, but I haven't managed to make their solution work:https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/3-seconds-delay-to-play-sounds-through-headphone/td-p/6... I would really appreciate if someone could help me out, or if Lenovo took the time to fix this, have a great day!

So I have a Lenovi Legion Y530, I bought this very recently. Specs: i7 8750H, Gtx 1050Ti, 16 Gigs of Ram, 128Gb SSD, 1Tb HD. So I decided to overclock my gpu (with Msi Afterburner) I increased the GPU clock by 350mhz, and the memory clock by 150mhz. I also undervolted the cpu by -0.140 volts. (I'm pretty sure this is the gpu's problem). I tried running Time Spy in 3DMark. This worked before I overclocked. While the benchmark was loading, it froze on the loading screen. Everything else worked, but I couldn't exit. It was just stuck on the screen. I couldnt enter task manager, or go to the desktop. My only option was to force shutdown. When I turned it on the Legion logo popped up and had the loading icon. Then it disappeared and nothing's loads after it, it stays as a black screen. Keep in mind that I don't have the tools to access the internals of the laptop. So I need a way to fix it someway else. Thanks in advance.

I am having a problem replacing the HDD in my Legion y530 with a Sata SSD. In the M2 slot is Intel Optane. Windows OS and everything on the HDD was succesfully cloned onto the Sata SSD. Once I made the switch and tried to boot up I got a black screen and the text "checking media". It then went to an error popup saying that no boot drive was found. I went to BIOS and saw that Intel Optane was still connected to the old HDD. I would like to know what went wrong here and what types of sata SSD work with optane if there are any?
