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.)

Hi all, Would love some help here.The fingerprint sensor suddenly, like literally suddenly stopped working all of a sudden. It was working maybe give and take about an hour before. I went into account settings under sign-in option to find that WINDOWS HELLO is not available for my device?! Then i went crazy all over the web trying to find a solution but to no avail. I have tried all kinds of method the web can find for me like:1) starting the cmd prompt and doing a system scan and health restore something like that which says the system is fine2)enabling the fingerprint driver in group policy3)updating the driver did not solve it4)reinstalling the driver does not help at all5)updating the laptop6)going into BIOS but could not find the driver anywhere7)renabling the driver there was no previous updates to the driver at all, it just stopped working and therefore i cannot do a rollback of the update to a previous version. o and after doing all these, i still cannot get it to work. Is there something wrong probably with the hardware?I just got the laptop about a month or so, hope this is just temporary as i quite like how this laptop is functioning for me now and would love the fingerprint function to be back. Sincerely,A lost carpex

Hi, I would be interested in buying an Ideapad 520S-14IKB, but I have a tiny keyboard issue! As I'm based in Italy, I'd buy one with an Italian keyboard, but I'd really like to replace it with an US one. So, the question is easy: is it possible to do it? And if it is, where can I buy the keyboard, how expensive would it be and how can I install it? Thanks!

I bout a Lenovo ideapad  520S-14IKB (Type 80X2) Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80X2 - Model 80X2007SRI and I upgraded it with 8 Gb RAM and a Kingston SSD (240Gb). The problem that I had before upgrading and after is that the CPU is being used at 100% or close when I open webpages (regular pages like Facebook, but not evrery page, some simple pages are loading without stressing the CPU). If I share my screen on Skype (which I usually do pretty often), things get even worse, the computer is slow. On my old laptop I don't remember to have had the same problems. Could you recommend me what can I do? The memory stays between 60 - 90% (8Gb RAM). Are there any benchmarks that I can run?

Hello lenovo, i want to suggest upgrade product to your lenovo ideapad 520 series. I think this time you to use the latest 8th generation processor intel and nvidia latest chip (mx150). I also think you can upgrade the bluetooth form 4.1 to 4.2 and it can be better if you change storage from HDD to PCle SSD. I hope you can consider my idea. Thank you for read my idea.

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

Hi, I am wondering if the recently upgraded Ideapad 520s-14IKBR (Intel core i5-8250u, 8GB DDR4, 128gb m.2 ssd, intel UHD graphics 620) has thunderbolt on the USB-C port? As far as I could find the previous versions don't have thunderbolt, only the 720s models. I hope they improved this new version with a thunderbolt connection. I also want to upgrade the native m.2 SSD for a Samsung 960 EVO so I can enable hardware encryption on it.Does anybody know which SSD is used in this model and does it already support SSD hardware encryption (TCG Opal) like the samsung does?Does this motherboard support a PCIe 3.0x4 NVMe SSD like the Samsung 960 EVO? Here are some specs: https://us.hardware.info/product/413163/lenovo-ideapad-520s-14ikbr-81bl005ymh/specifications I can't find any further info (or user manual) on this model and I can't even find the model on the Lenovo website except for the older models like 520s-IKB.  Hope someone can help me out. Thank you!

Hello! I am opening this thread here because I haven't found any specifics about the HDMI version on this model despite searching a lot, which is quite baffling to be honest. This model (320-14IKB) has an HDMI port but it's version is not specified. Notice that I am not asking for FPS for gaming since I know the HD Graphics 620 is not really suited for that.

NOTHINGhas worked. Spoke to Lenovo Live HelpNothing worked they told me to contact Microsoft. Spoke to Microsoft Live HelpNothing worked. They could not get it fixed. Now after a BIOS update that Lenovo suggested it showed up again but now says:Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer.

I don't know if my barely 1 week old laptop is defect or if these Harman speakers are of exceptionally bad quality, but I simply cannot have the speakers on for a moment since there's constantly a static background sound coming from them. The only way to fix this seems to be to turn them off, but sometimes even turning off the speakers gives me this static sound. Should I bring in my laptop for repairs? The sound quality is also very poor. I've had a cheaper ASUS and HP in the past and their speakers were MUCH better quality, so I didn't think a more expensive laptop would give me this issue...

It seems, that some sort of security is enabled in BIOS (Secure Boot?). Please referer to User Manual, page 7. Turn off your laptop and press Novo Button. Your laptop will turn on and Novo Menu will be displayed. Please go to Bios Setup and look for security settings. BTW. You can create an installation media using Windows Media Creation Tool.
