Y700 (15ISK) Display

Q: Y700 (15ISK) Display

Just ran a calibration of the display using Calman RGB last night and have to say that I am a little disappointed. The grayscale calibration worked well and I ended up with under .5% error but the color was way off out of the box and for some reason the Calman software could not make any significant improvement to the primary and seconday colors. Initial color error was almost 9%... a very noticable flaw in color reproduction. Calman did manage to improve other color points to get the overall color error to about 3% but, if just measuring the primaries and secondaries, the error appears to be in the 7% to 8% range. Curious if anyone else has tried calibrating their Y700 and managed to achieve better results ? Also curious what others think about the mod to remove the anti-glare film ? I don't like it. It actually creates a haze under direct sunlight. And I wonder if the anti-glare film is messing with the color.

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.)

The antiglare really does impact clarity. I'm not sure if colors are affected by it, but reason seams to think yes to some extent.

I am experiencing a display error every time that I boot up my new laptop from sleep or being off.  It looks like there are boxes all over the screen (attached).  Oddly, it goes away after a few seconds of use. I updated my video driver, but the issue persists.  I am not extraordinarily tech savvy, but please let me know if there's anything else that I can try before taking it in to a service center. Thanks!

The display on my Y700 has completey turned off. There is no backlight, and no software recognition of its existence. The computer itself is still fine when used with an external display. Is it just a matter of replacing the screen or is there a possible different explanation?

OS: 64-bit Windows 10I bought this laptop December 2015 and it has a limited 2 year warranty. I was using it today like any other day but all of a sudden the screen started to flicker. I think it happened when I used the "show desktop" option. It minimized all the windows but the screen began flickering/flashing (kind of like when the screens refresh rate is not right) and the edges of the screen had a sort of ghost image. The screen does not flicker on and off. It stays on but the I guess you could say the brightness flickers high and low. A restart cleared the ghost image but the screen still has that flashing effect.I swear System Restore was active but it's not turned on so going back hoping for a random fix isn't an option. I doubt it will help but I will try updating my drivers.

When I first got my machine probably a year or more ago. It was blazing fast, and stable. My best yet in fact. Now not so stable.My keyboard just stops working at times. Usually when playing League of Legends on another similar game that relies heavily on hotkeys. Hotkeys that are impossible to use without a keyboard!On top of that, when I restart the machine to fix it. Since that's the only way that I've seen to do that. It encounters problems shutting down and fails. Triggering the recovery menu before boot. That menu is also broken because of no keyboard working. So I have to force another restart (holding down power button). Once I get back to Windows again. Sometimes my wifi doesn't work anymore. So it wont connect (or see) any networks available. So I end up restarting again when that occurs. When it doesn't. Then I enjoy a nice period of having a keyboard.Until it breaks again later. I've tried to determine what it is that's causing it. But haven't gotten anything yet.A call to Lenovo support had the guy suggesting, as soon as I got done describining the issue, to factory reset the machine. I told him I'd really rather find another solution. But he wasn't able to give me one. Guided me to do a BIOS default reset. Which fixed it temporarily (because the machine was restarted). But it came back.I really don't want to call Lenovo support again. Doubt it would help, and the guy I talked to barely spoke English. Sounded like he was from India. Please help guys!

A:32 GB Ram on Ideapad Y700-15ISK ?

Hi basitj  , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  
So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  
 
Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 
 
If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 
 
Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community. 
 
 
Regards

Evening. I have purchased the Lenovo Y700-15ISK and having installed CS GO I am experiencing FPS spikes every 5-10 minutes of gameplay. At first I believed it was down to the GPU temperature reaching the throttle limit of 67 degrees but after further tests I have played for 1 hour+ and the temperature has not gone above 60 degrees. These spikes happen as soon as I enter the game even if the laptop has only just been turned on so I don't believe it is temperature related. I have the max processor state at 99% to eliminate turbo and it does not make any difference if I have the graphics settings on high or low. Any ideas or help would be appreciated as I seem to have hit a brick wall. Thanks in advance. Chris Keegan.

A:FPS Spikes on Y700-15ISK

Hi there, Chrisk ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
If the laptop is running on the battery, you will always be facing this problem. You have to run the games while using the power cord.
 
Plug in the AC adapter and set the power settings to high performance
 
Open the power options > change plan settings > change advance power settings and ensure the Link State Power Management is Off and Maximum Processor State is set to 100%.
Download & install GPU Shark (GPU Monitoring Tool) - you should see the GPU clock ~800Mhz+.
Download and install CoreTemp - you should see the CPU clock ~3Ghz+(turbo boost)
 
Also, This could be caused by the nvidia Optimus software. To fix it, simply go into your Nvidia Control Panel >>> Program Settings >>> Select a Program, and switch it to High Performance Nvidia Processor.
Done
 
Update us how it goes.

Hello Community, I was experimenting with several Linux Distributions on my Y700 (no problems at all) and tried today to install Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 in EFI-mode from an USB-Stick and suddenly the installer crashed. So I had to shutdown and reboot. Since then it is not possible to access BIOS or boot-menu. F2 (BIOS), F12 (Bootoptions) or NOVO-Button, nothing works any more. When I press the power button the notebook starts, shows the Lenovo logo screen for 15 to 20 seconds then power off (power LED off) and starts again, shows Lenovo screen and so on in a loop. I got no idea what to do.Any suggestions? ThanksThomas

Was that Win 10 via onekey. Regardless, check and apply the latest driver and utilities from downloads.Windows 10 will optimize fast boot startup after several shutdown and restart cycles. No doubt there are also outstanding Windows Updates as well which will take a long time to install and catch up to the current releases.

Hi Everyone, I found 2 air bubbles in the top right corner of my Y700-15ISK's screen.First I thought that it was under the screen protecting foil but it rather seems to be under the glass.I have never seen such faulty display before. The problem occured on the very last day of the warranty period but I could file the claim only today, 2 weeks later when I realized that more bubbles appeared, now there 10 air bubbles.Now I wait for feedback from Lenovo. Is there anyone with such issue? (air bubbles in the screen, no touch display) Best regards, Jozsef

Can you be a little clearer with your issue. From what I can gather, you're having problems with the brightness of your screen f right? Most issues like yours can be fixed/managed in settings menu. Go to display and find the brightness that suits you. Hope this helps. This is the best I could come up with based on how you asked your question.

ok lets get to it
so I got this laptop (LENOVO IDEAPAD Y700-15ISK 80NV00VXMB) i get good fps in games around 100-150ish in most games i play
internet on speedtest after multiple tests average of15-18ms     84 downloadspeed    4.85 upload speed
 
but when entering a game my ping goes up to almost 300 for a couple seconds then it goes back to 25ish for about 5 seconds and it keeps going up and down
 
I have tried a lot reinstalling windows, deleting the drivers and reinstalling them, cmd commands
 
but nothing seems to work. 
maybe one of you has the solution  
 
(also in game my internet gets dedicated to the game so its highest priority opening a music clip in youtube for example will take ages to load and its not nerve sense because i disabled netork priority in that) 
 
 
Thanks in advance!

I'm having an issue with the battery on my Y700. I generally work from my dining room table where I have the laptop connected to the charger and the charger plugged into the wall.  It sits getting power all day as I work. Consistetly in the mid-afternoon if I'm around I will discover that my laptop is no longer charging and that the power has run down to single digits.  If I unplug the charger from the laptop and plug it back in occasionally it will detect the charger and start taking a charge again.  Sometimes it will start charging again if I remove it from the wall.  Sometimes it will start taking a charge again if I remove the power cord from the charger. I replaced the charger with one that has a power light on it to see what was happening.  When the laptop gets down to single digits the power light is off.  If I disconnect from the laptop and re-plug it in to the wall the light comes back on.  However when I plug it in to the laptop the light will dim and then turn off. It's almost like the laptop is essentially forcing itself to discharge the battery once a day, which now that I type it sounds like a GREAT thing to preserve battery life, but not knowing where this feature is so I can make changes to it is not helping me be confident in using the laptop for a whole lot. Anyone else found this issue occuring?
