V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

Q: V510-15IKB Laptop Freeze

Hey! I just bought a brand new Lenovo V510-15IKB Laptop. The computer freezes without any reason in particular, and doesn't show any errors. I've already installed all the most up to date drivers and all the available updates both on lenovo support site, as the windows 10. The problems persists, happening at least a couple of times everyday, when it freezes nothing works, Ctrl+Alt+Del, nothing, hard reset is the only option. The computer is running windows 10 pro. This issues is really awfull, and happens without any warning, making me loose work, etc. Please help or share experience with similar situations. This is awfull since this is a brand new laptop, new model, new generation intel processor.... Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a v510-15ikb notebook. I have a problem with sudden blocks on the pc. A couple of weeks ago I did the memory diagnostics to check the ram but it did not give me errors. Then after three weeks I saw the blue screen with Memory management error. Referring to the memory diagnostics, errors appeared. Ok, it's RAM, but why did not it give me errors the first time?PS. Blocks occur from the first day of purchase.Sorry my English, I'm Italian. Thank you

I just bought a V510-15IKB. The fan on this laptop is doing things that should be very unnecessary.It spins up very abruptly to something that sounds like max speed every second minute or so,sometimes it stays moderately active for a while and sometimes it goes silent. This happens when just browsing this forum or other light use aswell.I havent done anything taxing besides updates and installs. I would accept this if I was doing something that naturally would be a demanding task, but not just from browsing the web.. I know my way around computers, but I'm by no means a poweruser.Any suggestions?

Hi,I bought a Lenovo V510-15IKB, the one that has an 256Gb SSD in it originally. I estimeted that it is going to be enough for me but saidly it does not. Is it possible to put a HDD next to the SSD? (I know there are models with 1Tb HDD + 128Gb SSD, I just don't know if the HDD plug can also be found in the version what originally comes only with an SSD).

A:Is it possible to put extra HDD in Lenovo V510-15IKB?

You will probably need the HDD bracket (FRU/Part Number 5B40M31704) to install the drive, and 4  "M3 × 3mm, flat-head screws" to mount the drive in the bracket (if not included with the bracket), but other than that you should be able to install the any standard 2.5" wide, 7mm or 9.5mm high HDD into your system.     You can usually find the screws needed locally from any decent computer repair shop, which normally have lots of extra screws laying around, but you can also order them from http://www.laptopscrews.com/ if needed. The bracket kit looks like this and can be ordered from Lenovo Encompass Parts here  (It does show that it is on back order).   You might also search for part number 5B40M31704 in your region as well. Cheers,

I bought a Lenovo V510 when it was on sale in Turkey about 4 months ago. Since I already had a laptop I did not setup that new laptop immediately till 1.5 months ago. When I started to use it especially at nights I noticed there is a very loud coil whine coming from the laptop when I leave it plugged in. I tried it with different outlet, bought a new adapter the coil whine did not go. Then I decided to send it to the Lenovo service. I was very disappointed with the quality of the Lenovo support. They are very unserious about the problem and very rude in the way they treat the customer. They are doing all kinds of tricks to prevent me from returning the laptop and ignoring the problem. In Turkey in the first 6 months if there is a factory problem I should be able to return the laptop and get a refund. My laptop is in the service for about 1 month. I have to travel for about 1.5 hours to go to the service (I did not want to use the shipping option since I did not want to deal with shipping problem like breaking the laptop). They are making me go there for the 3rd time in one month. Since coil whine is a factory problem I want to get a refund or get a new laptop. Can a Lenovo represantative help me with that?

Hello,I have a problem with audio over HDMI.I make fresh preinstall of Windows 10, update with drivers from Lenovo Support and was without result.I try without update of drivers, try with Windows 8 and again - in Sound->Playback devices you can't see HDMI.In the same time, the picture is fine, but just no audio. I try with drivers from Intel support site, but nothing too.At the final, to be sure that HDMI device like hardware is not defected or broken - I try with Linux Ubuntu Live from USB flash and it's working fine! So the problem is not physical. It's a software problem between Lenovo, Intel and Windows drivers and OS.Now is with fresh installed Windows 10 again and updated drivers from Lenovo Support site again and again is without HDMI audio.Any ideas?

Hello,
I have a Lenovo V510-15IKB on which Windows 10 64bit had been running until I updated the BIOS zu version 2WCN37WW. It looks as if the update was successful. In the BIOS I can see the new BIOS version, but I can?t boot into Windows anymore. After I press the power button I get stuck in the boot menu. Selecting the HDD on which Windows is installed doesn?t help. I get pulled back in the boot menu.
 
in the BIOS under ?Security?>HDD Password? its value is ?Frozen?. I don?t know what that means.
 
Can somebody help me?

I have come to my last resort, which feels like I have wasted money on this Yoga - It has taken me almost a year, I still don't have a clean event log and the only thing I have minimized is the locking up of the machine when the nvidea goes haywire.  Simple answer - on edge and explorer I force fed it the crappy Intel chip.  Now it's 'rev up' is limited.   I'm running Win10Pro 64bit. up to date on everything.  This situation has been since the first day I used this thing.  I can't trust it enough to use for work, so here it sits. just something to do nothing much with.   Is there a real fix for this that makes better sense than having a GPU that isn't used?

This is my first thread here.
 
I have got Ideapad 310 15ikb I5 1TB and 4GB RAM. 
 
Before this I have Intel 4440 (6MB cache and 16GB RAM) which I used for Visual Studio , MySQL and other programming work.
 
Going back to 4GB RAM is not looking good to me. For first 2 days I have this PC I only update update and update now it's working but it's stop me for 2-3 seconds I take one action.
 
I am looking for update RAM. Please help me.  Can I open it myself and put RAM on it. (Like I easily does same in desktop without void warranty)
 
and I am looking for using SSD on my PC. I have Lenovo recovery in my laptop and I don't want to loose it. I am thinking to get 256 GB SSD. Is that possible to setup this (all parition) to SSD. or better I looking for ISO which I can install on my SSD once I install it.
 
So My question is I want to upgrade RAM and HDD both. Plese let me know about both options,
 
Thanks in advanced.

I have Sketchup Pro 2017 installed on my Yoga 720 laptop at work.  On paper it seems like this computer should be more powerful than the machine its replacing, but its performance in Sketchup is really slow.  It makes the program really difficult to use because its freezing and lagging so much.  I've run a quick diagnostic on the machine and it passed.  I also have run Sketchup with the task manager window open and it seems to be using about 35-45% of the memory while its running.  Is it a graphics card issue?  My collegue ran one of the same files I've been working on and it worked fine and her machine is in theory less powerful.  She is using Windows 7 however.  Could it be an operating system issue?  Any other ideas?

Hello MRDKThanks for using the Lenovo forums.Sounds like something has happened to the recovery partition.
Possibly became corrupted.
 
You could try and create your own recovery:
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht117511
 
See if that is able to help restore it.
 
But if you want to reset it, it may be wort to simply format it all after saving your files that you need and reinstall from fresh, it would save you some hassle later on.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Hello friends,I bought a Lenovo notebook a couple of days ago and installed a Sandisk SSD replacing the original 1 TB Western Digital harddisk. I installed Windows 10 and then from the Lenovo webpage i installed the required drivers etc. And with the first restart the system did not boot and poped out a epairing disc notification. But no matter what i tried disc was not repaired.Anyway i reinstalled windows 10 and after installing the drivers once again the same thing happened. I suspect intel rapid storage drivers are causing this. But have not done any trial and error attempt yet. Any of you faced such an issue ? Thank you

On my brand new yoga 710, from time to time, the screen with start to do small shifts vertically.  Windows is up to date, went through and did intel specific driver scan, which came up with lenovo having a custom display driver set. Has anyone else experienced something similar to this.... this is my first touchscreen system I have ever dealt with, so I'm not sure how these custom drivers function.  It is about one pixel shift, which is not much, but enough to make me want to throw this thing out the window 4 days after buying.

So i have been using my new 720S-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) for a while now. Got it in late Jan 2018. Its  perfect in everyway except the touchpad which is driving me bonker! I believe Its running on native   windows precision driver.  So, every now and then the touchpad slows down as if when someone just reduced the pointer  speed and then after a while it fixes itself. Sounds more like dynamic touchpad DPI in play .Have no idea if certain driver or setting is causing  this inconsistent behaviour.  Please let me know if you fixed this by yourself or know of any registry tweaks that might help. I willing to try anytthing at this point. btw this is my replacement unit. The original unit had the exact same issue as well. So i don't think this is strictly faulty touchpad.

Hello all--am seriously considering returning this laptop---if this cannot be resolved.  Just bought thiis laptop about a month ago.  Doesn't matter which browser I use, but within 15-20 min online it starts to flicker violently (the word that comes to mind), and also today started blacking out.  It only does this when I am online, and it doesn't matter which site I am on.  It happens with all browsers, but with IE it starts almost within minutes of going online.  I am forced to shut the browser down. I've tried the Lenovo suggested Task Manager check---but I have not downloaded any apps that might be interfering.  Literally, this laptop is brand new! I've not installed anything. I don't want to remove the battery...I shouldn't have to do all this stuff to a brand new machine. It's frustrating since I got this specifically to do online things---work, design, surf, etc. I've searched hte knowledge base and the community and cannot see anything similar except for Tablets. Any ideas anyone?  TIA, Diane
