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.)

Where can I find information on the keyboard layout, specifically about the "highlighted" keys (w,a,s,d, and \ with red bar, 7 w circled Y)? I'm assuming they have special functions. I couldn't find anything in the manual or searching online. Thanks

Hello, I'm an owner of Y520 that I bought less than a month ago and in the past few days, I have been experiencing a strange keyboard issue. At seemingly random times, several random keys will become completely unresponsive.The keys will work fine all day except for a few minutes here and there. For example, my 'e' 'g' 'h' '8' '9' and 'FN' keys just stopped working for about 3 minutes, now they are obviously working fine again. Sometimes it's for more than a few minutes and can be a nuisance.I've also noticed sometimes holding the key down for a while will fix it. I'm wondering if there's some sort of fix that I can try when this happens so that I don't have to take it to an authorized service center.Furthermore, I've noticed that there are more people having the same issue with the same keys as there are videos about it on Youtube. I bought my laptop in Europe but currently live in Canada so I am a bit worried if it is possible to find an authorized repair center. Thanks for any help.

Hi, Recenlty i purchased the Y520 (2 weeks ago). In the beginning i had issues with USB devices, everything works except USB HDD or pendrives. This solved itself, but now i have another weird issue. This time the keyboard does weird. The E, J, and backspace dont work suddenly. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they dont. I dont know exaclty what is creating this, but it does also happen when using a bootdisk ala ultimatebootCD. Can you tell me what to do? WHere i purchased it, told me that Lenovo changed their warranty (DOA) and that i have to wait 3 weeks. What can/shall i do?

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

Thanks!

Hi. As the title says, I was using the notebook normally when the keyboard suddenly stopped working. It also doesn't work in the BIOS. I know the following methods probably wouldn't work, but just to be sure, I've already tried restoring the system, disconnecting the battery, reinstalling drivers and updating the BIOS (it was already the latest one). Any ideas?

Hi there

It seems that these days external keyboards only come in BLACK with Silver letters on the keys.

I prefer the old WHITE / CREAM ones with BLACK letters on the keys. I've resuscitated two old keyboards with the PS2 round connector --fortunately I still have the PS2--->USB connectors so the keyboards work. I've also got the USB==>USB wireless adapter so I can still use these WIRELESSLY (except for the USB-->to the wireless transmitter) but good enough so the keyboard is effectively a Wireless one.

I find the white keyboards much easier to use if I have to LOOK at the keys -- especially if I'm using different language keyboards.

Just a gripe - but I'm surprised all the external keyboards I see are always BLACK ones.

Cheers
jimbo

I haven't used my Ideapad U430 Touch much recently but it's not powering on. The screen doesn't come on. The GPU/CPU fan sometimes spins about 1/4 of a rotation, the power button light, the keyboard backlight, the side battery and HDD lights all just flash white every 5 seconds or so - continuously.  I've tried the various things people have recommended - unplugging battery, removing Power and pressing the power button 10 times with a second pause in between, then holding the power button for 30 or 60 seconds. No change. Any ideas? The above happens regardless of whether the battery is in or not. I've swapped out the RAM, no changes.

Hi there, Shaban ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
First make sure this is a hardware concern.
Run an Onscreen Keyboard, by Pressing (Windows key + R) then type in OSK then hit enter
Now on your onscreen Keyboard click on the keys that are not working see if they responding with the Onscreen keyboard.
 
If the keys responded using the Onscreen Keyboard, Then your Keyboard hardware is bad.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hey guys, I was doing the dishes with my laptop nearby and some water spilled on the keyboard, not too much though. The laptop was fine but maybe a few hours later some of the keys would make errors. For example when i press the 1 key the output is "`1" and i get the same output when i press the ` key. Many of my keys are doubled up like this such as five which outputs 54, and two which outputs f-two, and two. The computer is very tough to use in this state. I have been using it for quite a while since and just assumed its a hardware issue. Oddly, once in a while it will work for about ten minutes, then go back to being broken. Does anyone know how I can fix this?Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y50 keyboard issue

After water damage, it's best to let the computer sit for about 24-48 hours. Turning it on could cause more damage. If you can, try removing the keyboard and putting it in rice. If the keyboard still acts up after letting it sit, you'll need a keyboard replacement (which in this case means the upper case) Let me know if the keyboard still has issues after drying, and I'll find the correct part to replace fo ryou.

Hello, I have been having a couple of issues for some time now, but lately they are starting to annoy me. When I play some games my CPU overheats very easily. Playing Rust or Crea is almost near impossible, because the laptop just overheats and my fps drops from 60 to 10 and even lower. I can not play most of my games anymore without undervolting the processor with ThrottleStop. I undervolt the processor to ~0.79, which is an offset of -45.9. When it is undervolted most of the problems go away, however I want to know why is my processor not able to handle these games? I have a i7-4720HQ, which for some reason is limited to 2.6 GHz. And also Nvidia 960m. My friend has the same processor but his laptop is a Asus and his is limited to 3.6 GHz, without overheating. If I make mine to 3.6GHz I cana use my laptop for about 10 minutes, if playing games. I also gave the laptop for the thermal paste to be changed but that didn't help at all. I cleaned the fans but that also didn't help. I have an external fan, which is always on as well. Any ideas what to do? The keyboard issue is pretty simple. When I restart the laptop everthing works fine. Hibernating the laptop makes the backspace go 1 by 1 letter and not the usual fast deleting. To fix this I have to go to keyboard settings and change the keyboard repeat rate, which fixes the problem until the next Hibernation or Sleep.
