Q: Keyboard of lenovo ideapad L340 gaming is writing zeros, can’t get in

I bought my ideapad l340 a week before i left on a 3 months trip, so 2 weeks ago. It worked at first but now the keyboard is going crazy. No respons on typing, but it?s typing zero?s itself, continuously. So can?t get in, cause i can?t type my password. It worked once (trying for days now) so i updated stuff, see if it were drivers, it said it updated the bios, and then it rebooted, i had to login again.. and i got the zero?s back. It?s not the zero button that got stuck, it doesn?t feel stuck. So can?t go to the store since i?m a long way from home, does anyone have an idea what i can do?

Hi All,I am trying to figure out what the max ram is for my machine:L340-15IRH Gaming Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81LKMachine Type Model:81LK00SRCFProcessor: 1x Intel Core i7-9750H Processor(Core i7-9750H)Memory: 1x 16GBDDR42400Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64(EN:English,FR:French)Hard Drive: 1x 1TBPCIeNVMeWireless Network: 1x Intel Wireless-AC 9560 2x2 AC+BT5.0Ports: 1x Combo of 3.5mm Stereo Headphone OutputCamera: 1x 720P Camera with Dual MicGraphics: 1x NVIDIA GTX 1650Monitor: 15.6 1920x1080Included Warranty: 1 Year Mail-inAs far as I can tell, the manufacture recommended is 16, which is what it came with. But it seems like it is fairly new (I think it was manufactured in Dec 2019), so I am wondering if the info that I am reading is for older models, because I have seen a lot of different configurations for this laptop online, and not many come with more than 8gb.According to crucial it maxes out at 16 or 20; I guess some motherboaerds have an extra 4gb soldered to the board, as far as i can tell mine does not.PHS memory, on amazon.uk say its 36gb! That is probably 32+4 if you have it soldered to your motherboard; so 32 in my case. If it can handle more than recommended, I wouldnt mind giving it a go, but I would be inclined to order a comparable part from crucial instead of this cheap stuff. Does anyone have experience with upgrading past 16gb, or know if it might work?Thanks in advance!

A:L340-15IRH Gaming Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81LK Ram Upgrade

If I remember correctly, the motherboard of L340 actually supports up to 32GB RAM. While I can't be certain since this is never officially documented.

Hey all, I've recently bought the L340-15IRH model and I'm in love with it! Since I bought it from Germany though, the keyboard layout is qwertz and I'd like to replace it with a qwerty one, but I am having trouble finding such. Could someone please point me to where I could buy a compatible keyboard? Thanks!

Hello everybody, Two days ago I bought a Lenovo l340 gaming, i7 with a gtx 1650. In these two days of usage I'm experiencing some battery life problems. With a normal usage, web surfing and downloading my battery last only for couple of hours with power saving option actived. I'm reading some benchmark on the internet in which the tested model last for 5h or 7h, is it possible that my machine is defective? What's your experience? Thanks in advance for the answer

Hi! I'm having an issue with my new laptop and I really hope someone can help me with possible solutions or at least explanations. Thank you in advance for reading about my problem  In short, I've recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad 520S laptop, with the following specs: Intel Core? i7-7500U 2.70 GHz, Kaby Lake, 14", Full HD, IPS, 8GB, 256GB SSD, nVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB I was looking for a good compromise between mobility and performance (with a little bit of gaming capacity thrown in), and this is the best I could find within my budget. And, while overall the laptop works as well as I'd imagined, I'm having a really frustrating problem on the gaming front.Specifically, while playing a rather old game (Mass Effect 1, for what it's worth), the laptop gets hot (to very hot) exactly in the much needed WASD keyboard area, thus rendering the game nearly unplayable.Now, I fully understand that this is nowhere near a gaming laptop, but we're talking about a 10+ year old game! Not only that, but I've played the same game before, on a significantly lower configuration, with nearly no issues at all. Actually, I've played many games, on laptops with weaker processors and integrated graphics, and I haven't experienced this much heat.So... has anyone encountered this issue with a similar laptop? And, if so, can anything be done about it? I find it really frustrating that I can't even play such an old game in decent conditions, not to mention disappointing...Thank ... Read more

Anybody know the best method for clearing a hard drive before getting rid of it? I have a hard drive that needs to be replaced and is under warranty. It is an OEM, so there is no software from the manufacture to write zeros or anything. I plan on first doing an FDISK and then using a program to write zeros or patterns or whatever. First....does anybody have a suggestion as to a better method to go about this.....and second.....does anybody have suggestions as to good programs to write zeros over teh drive?

RELEVANCY SCORE 70.8

Two things:
First, what is the best freeware program out there for writing zeros to a drive in DOS? I want a program that I can just boot to the floppy and run it off of disk and easily write zeros over the drive. WD has this included in their utilities, but this is an OEM drive. I had this one program that was pretty good for this, but it only ran in Windows.
Second, any body have any tricks for recovering data on a failed drive? I have this WD drive that failed last August or September. (WD won't send drives to P.O Boxes, so I had to wait until I came home from school) When it was failing, I starting saving files by copying from this drive to another in windows, but it didn't work too well. After some time it would say the drive was disconnected and I would have to restart. At first it was after a few 100 MB and very soon it wouldn't really let me get into it so I quit. This was mid Sept and I haven't done anything since then. It has just sat disconnected in an empty HDD slot. There is about 50 GB on it and if possible I would like to just image it onto another HD. I don't think I'd get enough run time out of it to get into it and save all I want. If I can get it to run for a good 4 hours I should be able to just let it sit there and do the work.

I would like to hear anything and everything. The best method, specific processes.............whatever. Such as put the good drive on primary master and failed drive on secondary slave or what not... Read more

Dell laptop with a WD 750GB Black hard disc. Decided to do a clean install of the OS after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I wanted to go back to 7 and start with a clean drive and used Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for DOS.
Wrote zeros to the drive, and then booted to my retail version of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, only to receive an unmountable boot volume error. Ran a quick test on the disc and it came back error free. Now running the full test but it takes about 90 minutes.
In the meantime, any suggestions on what is wrong and how to correct it? Thank you.

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 there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

Hi, I recently bought the l340-I5RH (Gaming laptop, 9th gen i5, GTX 1650), and I noticed that the touchpad seems to be pretty bad in a couple different ways. The first thing I noticed was that the touchpad feels sort of "loose", the physical touchpad plate seems to descend slightly even upon light presses that don't trigger a click. Secondly, I'm unable to move the cursor using the touchpad while during any sort of keypress. This is an issue in things like simple games (Obviously, only the type that I would play with a touchpad, using a USB mouse is fine). I looked into it and it seems like an intentional feature, something about accidental palm movement while typing; however, I followed multiple sets of directions in pursuit of disabling, but my device seems to be missing the options set to remove the function.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Hello,  I recently got myself a LENOVO ideapad 310, like just about close to less than a month ago and have faced several issues.  My cursor will start to become pixelated sometimes and become the normal cursor again, this has happened since the very beginning, but I chose to ignore it as it does not really affect much of my experience using this notebook.  It was up until just now, when I decided to play a game of League of Legends (Its not very graphic intensive), that my keyboard suddenly malfunctioned in the middle of it. Not knowing what is the problem, I couldn't quit the game either as the game menu can only be accessed via the Esc key. The surface suddenly became quite hot and I forcefully turned off my laptop as I always believed that restarting your computer is always a solution.  After the ideapad turned off, I couldn't turn it on for quite awhile, until I decided to hold the power button while it's off. It then turned on but it could not load past the LENOVO logo screen with the small circle at the bottom. After waiting for a good 30 minutes or so, I decided to turn it off once again and use the NOVO button. All while doing that, I had turned on a fan and blew at my laptop at max speed hoping it would cool down.  After using the NOVO button and a few turn ons and offs, the laptop started working normally again, and here I am posting on the forums.  There is no issue now, it's working perfectly fine.
