Lenovo Legion Y720 - slow while multitasking

Q: Lenovo Legion Y720 - slow while multitasking

Hello, I have a problem with my Legion Y720 notebook, it is very slow while multitasking. For example: if I have a game opened and then I start any browser and try to watch a video on youtube, it get's very laggy, I cannot watch the video. Before upgrading to this notebook, I had a much worse one and with that one I had no problems doing the same operations with the same games and apps. Any ideas how to solve this? Thank you!

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, I recently upgraded my system by installing a Samsung 970 EVO 1TB SSD. I switched to AHCI, did a fresh install of Windows, installed all of the drivers from Lenovo, and everything was working fine. About a day after that, I turned on my laptop and noticed that the GTX 1060 was not being detected. I opend the task manager and only saw the GPU 0 which is the Intel HD Graphics, but I didn't saw the GPU 1 which is suppoed to be the 1060. I opened device manager and nothing. Tried to re-install NVIDIA drivers but it said that there wasn't any compatible hardware (meaning the system is not recognising the GPU. Went to the page of NVIDIA and dowlnoaded the drivers from there and same result. Opened GeForce Experience and nothing. No GPU detected. Entered the BIOS and nothing. No signal of the GPU. My question is: What can I do about it? Is there a way I could solve this without having to send my laptop to service?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

Hello Everyone,I've just purchased this lovely Lenovo Legion Y720-15IKB. Currently I enjoy it very much except this little annoying thing. I'm not sure when and how it achieved this but every time when I unplug the laptop from the electricity every connection to the internet is saying either "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection" or the proxy server cannot connect. I have internet connection while using my other laptop and phones but this Legion cannot do it. Any suggestions what can I do to solve the problem? If this is connected (I doubt but who am I to know) even the changing of lights stopped with Fn + Space, all other combinations are working properly. Thank you for the help.

Hi there, I recently bought the Legion Y720 which came with a 256gb SSD and a 2TB HDD. Everything was working fine for a week, and then suddenly the HDD was no longer detected. The first time it happened, everything was back to normal after a shut down but now it's just completely gone. The strange thing is that if I open up This PC straight after startup, e drive appears with a different icon, and then disappears again when This PC has finished loading. I can't find the HDD on Device Manager or BIOS either. Please help. Thanks in advance.

I bought a Legion Y720, and now I'm upgrading the Hard Drives (I bought a Crucial MX300 of 575 GB), but it doesn't work on the Y720, because the motherboard only accept m.2 with PCI-E. And the MX300 is Sata III. (My fault). So I bought now a Samsung PM951. And now I'm waiting to receive it... The question is.. For the second hard drive.. I want to buy the Seagate with 4tb. But the height of the hard drive is 15mm. And I don't know if it fits in the laptop. (The normal hard drive have 7mm or 9mm height).Anyone tries to put or knows if it fits? The exact model is ST4000LM024.Sorry if my english it's not the best

Three weeks ago i bought the Lenovo Legion Y720-15IKB. And since then i have had A lot of issues with this laptop. My laptop basiscly sutters and lags a lot and i can`t solve it. There are lot of diffrent type of action when this occurs. First one is mouse and keyboard lag. A lot of times i drag my mousecursor somewhere, and the laptop/screen or mouse just lags for half a sec. And after that it will be at the point where i dragged it to. Also my input on the keyboard lags/stutter as well.  Second one is whenever A new window pops-up, for instance when you click an url in googlechrome or even when  press on the windowshome button the computer just seems to lag. Seems unable to properly load the new screen. When i play a game, and i Alt-Tab back to google chrome at first the screen lags a bit, then the screen flikkers( black) and then i am able to use my computer.Also frequently when i Alt-Tab from a game my Google chrome is completely pitch-black the only thing that is visable is the toolbar. When I click on the toolbar with my cursor, Google chrome suddenly goes back to normal. Frequently i get erros when i try to watch a youtube video. When i watch a stream and want to go fullscreen often it`s just an error or lags really hard.Overal it just really laggy and stutters alot. I tried changing up the videocard settings, From automatic selection to Intel only To nvidia only. My computer seems to work better  when i change these settings. I can j... Read more

Hello everyone! Today I have received the Xbox One controller I bought on internet and I couldn't connect it to my Lenovo Legion Y720 laptop . I have read every post in this forum and also watched a few videos on YouTube and I can't make it work. Just to be clear:My Legion Y720 has the Xbox One wireless adapter built in. I have enabled it in "Airplane mode" settings.According to Windows device manager, I have "Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows" (under "Network adapters") installed with its latest drivers (also installed the one available at the Lenovo website) and it says that it has no problems.I have tried pairing my controller following the steps on the controller manual: Press the Xbox button in the controller for 3 seconds (until the white light blinks) and then, in Windows, go to Settings > Devices > Add other device and wait. The light on the controller blinks, but I wait and the device does not appear.Exact controller model: Xbox One EX6-00006 controller (click here to see where I bought it. It's the official Xbox store in Argentina). Exact laptop model: Lenovo Legion Y720-15IKB. That's pretty much everything I have to say. If more details are needed just request them and I'll provide them.Greetings and thanks in advance!  Note: I forgot to mention that I have disabled the "Selective Suspend" and Allow Windows to power off this device to save energy options in "Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows" properties.
