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!

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 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!

Is there going to be a future release for the Ideapad 520s in the USA? If not, that would be quite an inconvience, since the 300 Series have an 8GB RAM Max limitation and inferior quality and the 700 Series are limited to M.2 SSD's. The only other current alternative is the Flex 5 (or Yoga 520).

Good day everyone,I just recently bought a new laptop which is a lenovo ideapad 110-14isk. When I booted it up, I noticed that it can't respond quickly so I opened task manager and saw that disk usage is always at 100%. Due to this, even shutting down takes a long time and seldom I force it to shut down because it is very unresponsive. I observed the laptop for a few days and found out that windows update was slowing it. I disabled the Windows Update Service, and when I rebooted it, the disk usage is at normal levels. So my question is, how can I update my laptop? and is there any way to use Windows Update without the laptop lagging? Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.

I googled for some time and could find solutions without using screw drivers as this has built in battery. I got this laptop like a month ago. its working fine on day 1 but the following days, I cant turn it on without using charger even though the battery is 100% charged. When on battery, it wont turn on. Then I plug in the charger and tried to turn on but it wont start. The plug in light is on. And I would need to wait for around 30 minutes to try to turn on again. When turning on it would show something like this. Sometimes, the screen would blink in dark green and I can hear the starting up sound repeatedly but it just wont start. Anyone can help with solutions without the need to open the laptop as I have no clue to do that?

Hi! I bought the Ideapad 720S-14IKB about two weeks ago, and I am really really happy about it. The only thing that is bothering me, is that the fans on this machine cycle a lot. Like, for a while they make basically no noise, until they suddenly ramp up to the max for a short period before they go back to being practically silent. They're not even that loud in general, it's just that they are pulsating a lot, and that makes the noise so much more noticeable. I really would like to see a BIOS update or driver update or something that makes the fan cycling a bit smoother. Is there any chance of this actually happening in the near future?
