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.)

Grettings. So, last year i bought this Ideapad Y700 Touch-15ISK gaming laptop and i really love it, just that i would like to make a small upgrade to it, like having a SSD (exclusively to load OS) and a HDD (to install games/software, etc), i just wonder if it's possible (if the hardware has the slot to do so). Also i was wondering if i can replace it's graphics card to a higher-tier one (it came with a GeForce GTX 960M, was thinking to get the GTX 980M), as i was thinking to assemble a gaming PC, i thought it would be easier to me to just upgrade my gaming laptop (and save a lot more money doing so) Thanks in advance

Will I ever get a firmware upate for my Y700-17ISK Ideapad?  The firmware listed at this location, https://support.lenovo.com/pe/en/solutions/len-18282, E5CN62WW, does not work as a download and the same version listed under 700-17ISK will not install as the installation program says it isn't compatable with my machine.  This has been unbelieveably frustrating.  Still having sart-up issues.  Is there any hope in the near future the new firmware will be available?  Been waiting for months.

After those 5 seconds, my keyboard doesn't light up anymore, but I still hear the computer fans running.  **PLEASE HELP**

Hello,  I have the Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) which I received as a replacement for my last Lenovo which could not be fixed by Lenovo Support. Since I received this as a replacement, my warranty only lasted a month (the residual from my initial warranty). Now, I have only had it for a few months and it has had many instances of the blue screen of death with my computer suddenly needing a restart. I do not have warranty anymore so I am reaching out to you all. The hardware scan says the Mathmatical Operations Test on my Intel (HD) Graphics 550 card failed. I got the result code: WVC007002-UL7VFK. I could not find any information about this code online.  Through the Lenovo website I tried to update my Intel driver by downloading the one the website recommended for my computer after I entered my Serial # (I think it was Intel VGA) and after it downloaded I got a warning saying: "Error: The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer. Setup will exit." Regarding the blue screen of death, there have been several different error messages, but the one that comes the most often is "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". The most recent blue screen message was "Stop Code: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION; What failed: igdkmd64.sys" I am not sure if these problems are related, but it seems the most important issue is the graphics driver since I use a lot o...

Hello Lenovo Community, I purchased this laptop about a month ago and recently I found out that Y700 15.6" model have different submodel with touch and non-touch display. There's no 'Touch' named on the specific model I had purchased, and my laptop full type name (as listed in the receipt) is Y700-151SK-7JID. According to the System panel in control panel, the laptop said to have 'Touch Support with 2 Touch Points'. Interestingly, on Device Manager under Human Interface Devices, there are two 'HID-compliant touch screen'. Reenabling it doesn't change anything and neither do reinstalling said HID driver. I'm curious whether this laptop actually have touch display or not. I'm not sure if I miss installing something because I reinstall my windows on a Samsung SSD, or it's just that my laptop actually have no touch display but somehow listed as touchscreen-ready? Thanks for the help.

Purchased my Y700 Notebook back in early July 2016.  Very recently, my battery would read 100%, but would shutoff a few minutes after removing AC power and attempting to run the laptop from it's battery power.  I am a user who uses AC power most of the time as my laptop is more of a mobile platform for me since I need to move it around alot. Last night, battery still read at 100%.  I messed around with some power settings past few days to see if I could get get this problem figured out.  Powered it on this morning after shutting it down last night and the battery is now at 0%.  The battery indicator in system tray reads "0% available (plugged in, charging)".  It has been saying this for several hours and it does not appear to be charging (or able to hold a charge).  I am still under warranty.  Before making a service call, I want to check the forums to see if anyone has had this particular problem and been able to solve it.  I realize these newer lithium batteries systems are a bit more complex and I am still learning about them.  Would be appreciative of any assistance. My initial thought is that the battery is simply not able to hold a charge anymore (it only has 34 charge cycles on it) and is defective.  The other possibility is the charging circuit is defective in some way, but I am not thinking this is likely considering that the battery was reading 100% last night.

So I was trying to chance some settings on my y700 but turns out the ideapads don't have any options to change in BIOS. The only things I found in there are turning wifi on/off, swichable graphics and a few other things that I'm not interested in. And I've dug a bit on the internet and turns out that's normal, which makes very little sense. As far as I know, all computers have BIOS settings in the BIOS (makes sense, right?). So, why do the lenovo laptops (not including think products) not have that? And is there any way to access BIOS settings (including flashing a modded BIOS)? Here's what I mean:? ?

My Ideapad was purchased new in July 2016. It has always been connected to the mains and never used on the battery. The battery indicator now shows 91% and charging but it isn't charging and the laptop will not start up or continue running if the mains power is removed.I am concerned that a battery fault may cause other problems, such as fire, so I would like advice on how to remove or disable the battery completely and if it is OK to continue to use the laptop with no battery fitted. I am unlikely to need battery operation in the future.

Whenever I insert a 128GB SDXC Card into my IdeaPad 500-151SK the following zaps-in at the bottom right corner of the screen: "There's a problem with this drive. Scan the drive now and fix it." I did have the same problem with 64GB SDXC Cards and took it back to the retailer, who, I think, fixed it. I hope that it is capable of read/writing to SDXC Cards up to 256GB?

Hi. Today without any reason, while updating a game, my laptop turned off and began restarting. Than I got error about EFI IPv4, IPv6. After entering BIOS (via NOVO button) i found that Hard disk is not detected. After few tries of changing boot options I asked BIOS to Load default settings, pressed "save and exit". Than i got new message (picture below). After this, laptop is restarting all the time (just Lenovo graphic appears) and I CAN'T enter BIOS by NOVO button. Dont know how to use power drain on this model since there is no removable battery. Laptop shout down after 1 single touch od power button. P.S: all the time Hard Drive light in front of laptop is OFF, only "Power" and "Charging" lights are ON. But in time when i got message (picture below) the Hard Drive light turned ON. Now it's all the time off again. Can't enter BIOS to see is hard drive detected again.

When I run the command prompt to identify the BIOS it is blank where it should show which version I have. When pressing the NOVO button I receive the option screen to boot to BIOS or Boot Management screen but no matter what option I select the OS boots regularly. Is there any known solutions for this.

After a bit long atualization I entered my password and my desktop turned black again.I found out I can still change the brightness and lock it. So Iocked it, used the Microsoft Hello and that one activated the McAfee LiveSafe on Firefox. If I close my browser I might not be able to open it again.
