Ideapad u310 windows explorer error

Q: Ideapad u310 windows explorer error

My ideal as u310 running win 7 suddenly gives an error after login. A pop-up appears saying windows explorer encountered an error and cannot load. Next all desktop icons disappear as well as the taskbar, leaving nothing but the desktop wallpaper. I have no recovery disc, and system restore doesn't work either. I cannot boot into safe boot. Does anyone have a solution?

Preferred Solution: Ideapad u310 windows explorer error

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,I've been having some sound issues with my Ideapad U310 for a while now, and any help would be appreciated. Initially, no sound came out of the speakers, but if I plugged heaphones into the audio jack I could still hear sound through the headphones. Unfortunately, now there is no sound from either the speakers or the headphones. To address this, I've tried disabling sound enhancements through playback devices. I've tried installing the latest drivers for Intel Display Audio and Conexant Smart Audio HD. I've also attempted deleting these drivers (both together, then one at a time) and then installing manually/letting Windows install them. Unfortunately the nearest factory reset goes back to a time when the sound was not working. None of this appears to work. I'm wondering it whether it could be a hardware issue, since the USB drive next to the audio jack does not work either and what with the headphones initially still working. I'm running Windows 10, 64 bit. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Howe are you?I accidently deleted factory installed Windows program preinstalled on my computer.is there anyway you can send me a link to down load? it is Windows 7 and I can provide serial# if necessary.

A:Ideapad U310 factory reset

Hi kimuh72 ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community.
 
Keep your Serial number confidential.
Did you clean install windows reformatting the entire harddrive before or just an in place install?
Did you manage to create a recovery media before?
 
The factory image resides on a hidden partion on the harddrive and can only be restored on the depot facility.
 
No harm on trying if it is still working right .
Turning off your pc , then press the Novo key (page 28) ,
System recovery on the menu
 
You may order your Recovery media set by calling support  
Check your warranty coverage specially if the harddrive broke for repair . 
Else,  you can download windows 
OEM product key would be the challenge , you can try using tools to extract it if needed.
For the drivers needed , its all free for download. 
 
Hope this post helped you and gave you idea to proceed.
Just reply back and let us know how it goes.

I have a Levovo Ideapad U310, PN 59351642, 13.3" Ultrabook. When the power button is pressed, I can hear the CPU fan was on but there was nothing on the screen. I verified that the disk is working. I can attach the disk to my external drive and it is working file. I suspect that the mother board is bad. But I need to confirm this before ordering a mother board replacement. There are other components such as the LCD screen or the CPU itself might be bad. When I turned on the power, I tried to enter the BIOS set up utility by pressing Fn-F2 but there was still nothing on the screen and there was no sounds or beeps. I have tried the "onekey rescue" but this also did not work. Are there any other tests that I can perform to be certain that the mother board is bad and all other components are still okay? Any helps / suggestions are greatly appreciated. Ken

A:Ideapad U310 Motherboard Problems

Same here. Mobo is faulty. Symptoms are- press power and caps lock flashes once- front battery light is on and funtions normally (flashing amber for charging, white for charged)- front power light is white, as normal- power on button is on, as normal- nothing on screen, no backlight, completely black My part number ends with a 7, meaning i5 CPU - so it's not a CPU specific issue but a common issue between models, meaning motherboard or something on the board like the GPU.

Hey everyone, I got a new ideapad U310 this weekend. I'm very happy with it, accept for the fan. It seems to go fast for no reason. I found some old topics on this forum, one with a bios update, but it does not seem to work anymore on the current bios version unfortunately. Can anyody please help me? The fan noise is very annoying and after 2 days of working with the ideapad I rather have it turned off to get rid of the noise than continue working on it.

A:DISPLAY PROBLEM Ideapad U310 Touch

Hi DILEMMA123,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As I understand that you are facing issues with your Ideapad U310 touch display, however when you power on the unit there is power but  no display and the screen remains black.
 
Here are the troubleshooting steps that you may try
Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help. - Start by doing a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then try booting it up again. - If this will not work, do test the AC adapter if it's working properly. Remove the battery and power the laptop with just the AC adapter connected and see if it will boot up or not. do also try a different AC adapter that has the same voltage and see if it will work or not. - Proceed with reseating the RAM's if trying a different AC adapter will not work, remove them all for couple of seconds then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly. - If it will still not work, connect an external monitor and see if you'll get any display from it. If there's a display on the external monitor that could mean that the problem is the built in display.  - But if there's still no display on the external monitor that means the problem lies in the motherboard.
In addition, here are further service centers that you can also check
I hope the above information helps.

Hello, I have had a U310 Touch for over three years now and I have recently discovered that after the upgrade to Windows 10 the BIOS is now nonexistant. 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.

Hello Lenovo,I'm a business management student from India.I purchased Lenovo Ideapad U310 Touch model this May from the US (through Amazon) and have been using it without any issues till the last month. Last month I noticed that the hinge had developed tension and there was additional pressure on the lid or the screen area while closing. I thought it would be a routine issue and took it to my college's hardware repair center, but they suggested I handle the issue via Lenovo Support as it required opening the laptop.When I checked Lenovo support through customer care (India), I was told that the U series is not covered by International warranty. But I checked if the Lenovo service center would still have a look at the issue, to which I was told that it would be chargeable. I thought it was fair enough and took the laptop to the service center in Jamshedpur this afternoon.To my utter disappointment, the technician was unable to open up the area near the screen (where the problem was supposedly), but he also got the screen cracked while trying to. Now I'm left with a laptop that cannot be used as even though the screen display is intact, the touch sensors detect screen touch near the cracked area and keep the cursor rooted to that point. Also, the issue with the hinge could also not be fixed. All to add to the woes, I will have to manage a few days (don't know how many) without a laptop and also shell out the expense from my pocket!Now my question is, will the screen for Ideapad...

hi dharamc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried checking this issue under the BIOS mode.
  Power ON the computer and start hitting F2.
 
If the problem is visible under BIOS, then don't mind the driver as the problem might be the GPU or the LCD screen.
  to isolate the issue further you can use an external monitor.
 
If the problem is not visible under an external monitor, then you have a problem with the GPU
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

I have a Lenovo U310 Touch that came from the store with Windows 8.1 on it. I need to install Hyper-V and that requires 8.1 Pro.

I have a product key from my MSDN subscription for 8.1 Pro and attempted to use the "Add Features" program from the system screen to upgrade. It takes the code, validates it as ok, goes through some downloading and other stuff then reboots the system. When it comes back up after the reboot it states "Couldn't add features" along with a contact Microsoft Support link.

I looked around and can't find a log file or any error codes that I could post here, if anyone knows where it is I'll be happy to post anything I find.

I tried contacting support, but the two different people I talked to just walked me through the same process to then punting to another person who ran me through the same and came to the conclusion "can't help you".

I've done this on 2 desktop machines to enable Hyper-V with no issues but for some reason this doesn't work on this "Ultrabook".

I've tried this on a hard network connection and on a wireless connection to see if anything changed. Still broke both ways.

The machine does have 2 drives in it, one 20GB SSD for recovery and recovery drivers and the primary drive. I've read where there may be files mapped on that drive that are causing problems, but have no clue how to actually find these and move them.

Any ideas?

Hello, Thank you for your time, my issue started with a broken screen, I asked for a replacement through mail, when I installed the new screen it seemed to work fine. At a certain time of turning off the computer and starting it, the resolution is off by 86 pixels horizontal, the original resolution is 1366x768 (16:9), and now shows 1280x800 or multiples (w=1280,h=*). At first I thought it was an issue with drivers with Windows 10 the forums entries I found seem to indicate this, tried all of them. I also tried the custom screen resolution tool from Intel, it adds the resolution inside the tool, but it does not list the new resolution in the "graphics properties" section. With no luck at solving the problem I tried to boot a GNU/Linux Live version from a FlashDrive, with GNU/Linux showing the same resolution limitation. I've noticed that going to the BIOS is showing the same screen usage. After this, my old screen still works it just the crystal that got cracked, I reinstalled and noticed that has the same screen size problem, so is not the new screen it seems. This is the point till I've gotten, don't know much about UEFI maybe it saves screen resolution information at a place I can't reach, and is not adapting itself correctly imposing it screen scan to the OS that start to work after UEFI. The only thing that comes to mind. Your help is appreciated,Thank you.

Hi there, this is the first time that I am writing such a guide/tutorial/whatever you may call it ? there are probably better ones, but though not being a total computer noob, it took me almost one week to get this pretty (now again) little beast running again.

Actually an easy task, format all drives, install Windows, be happy. Just as I had been doing this for years. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a real challenge. First, I couldn?t ?see? my drives during installation (and thus not install), then I got random errors during installation aborting it at different points and finally rapid start and caching didn?t work. Every time I tried to activate them (after Win installation), it crashed my PC.

Almost all give same methods. There are different other devices too connected with same network and internet is working on them. So is it a Windows issue or a hardware issue. Looking forward. Thanks.

When I tried to boot my laptop (Lenovo IdeaPad S210) it displayed the message "Recovery Your PC needs to be repaired. The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information. File: \BCD Error code: 0xc000000d. You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer. Press Esc for UEFI Firmware Settings". My laptop came preloaded with Windows 8.1, so I don't have any installation media. I copied the Boot folder from a Windows 7 64-bit recovery disc onto a USB drive since the IdeaPad S210 doesn't have a disc drive. Now I can't figure out how to boot from the USB.

A:IdeaPad S210 Windows error code 0xc000000d

Hi hai-kai,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
BCD Error code: 0xc000000d would easy to fix using a recovery media ,
 
But since you were not able to create one initially, then best check on your warranty if it is still active and call in tech support for further options. 
 
By the way you can fix it within 20-30 minutes using lenovo Factory reset using the NOVO button. (page 5 , 25 )
That would surely delete everything on the system and you need to reinstall them back. 
This should be a final option. 
You may slave your harddrive to back up first or use a bootable rescue disc to transfer files . 
 
Same as booting to BIOS . 
Turn off ps and use the same Novo button to turn on , choose BIOS set up 
You can change the BOOT to legacy from UEFI and boot priority to the USB, and check you the USB would be detected as boot option . On exit tab , save changes and exit or F10 . restarts.
Restarting then tapping F12 can also lauch the boot manager to repair BCD files . 
 
I would suggest running full diagnostics if you were able to boot back to Windows to check for your harddrive integrity , if its not the main cause of the error code in the first place .
 
Hope that this help reolve the problem. 
Have us updated on how it goes too. 
 
 
Regards,

Dear Tech guys,
I badly need your support. Day before yesterday (01-Aug-06) night I upgraded the yahoo toolbar and used their norton anti spy to scan. Then I shut down the system and started to work the next day. Every thing is perfectly ok except for one thing. In Windows Explorer, on any folder or drive if I double click or open I get a crash. If I do explore then there is no problem.

Below is the dialog that comes whenever we double click or open (for eg: on C:\ or any folder in the left side pane of the windows explorer. If I just keep expanding the + of the tree no problem, only on clicking the item to open the following error occurs.)

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

program: C:\Windows\Explorer.exe

This Application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I am running on Windows XP SP 2. I dont have google toolbar. I have yahoo tool bar installed. I have tried uninstalling it and installing it again and other combinations as well.

I have also tried sfc /scannow as well. It did not work.

It doesnt look like any adware or spyware (yahoo's norton spyware had done a complete run and no problems in the system as reported by them).

What should I do now to get back to normal operation of windows explorer.

Thanks and Regards,
Naga Kumar S
 

A:Windows Explorer Runtime Error (not related to Internet Explorer)

I would un-install the Yahoo Toolbar and then put Google Toolbar in, Then I would try to download .NET framework 2.0

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...6b-356b-4a2c-857c-e62f50ae9a55&displaylang=en

and install it. If it tells you that you already have it re-install it anyway.

I hate to ask for an urgent reply, but I am in quite a fix! I need to access some data on my computer this a.m.

System Data: Windows XP Pro SP2 w/all patches/updates

First, I noticed that shortly after restarting my computer, Zonealarm Internet Security firewall would start, then the icon for Zonealarm would disappear from the system tray. This is the first problem I have noticed and I include this information because I do not know if it is related to the current problem.

Second, I click 'start,' then 'run.' After the 'run' dialog box appears, I type 'services.msc.' After I hit the enter key, I get an error which states something along the lines of an 'exception error in explorer.exe [error 1356]. The computer then restarts.

Any ideas or troubleshooting tips?

Thanks!

Firstly try and boot up into 'safe mode, by pressing F8 on Start up. You should get a number of options, use the up/down keys to select and press enter.

So I cannot get the internal microphone to work on CS:GO or any steam game for that matter. Besides that I use a headset which I have set to default audio in but still doesnt work. can someone help??UPDATE: I tried to listen to what was going in the mic. I could hear the test sound that I made but afterward it made an eerie echo which kept on taking place for 20 seconds. This was with the headset, when I used the internal mic, the test sound was unrecognisable and the echoing was much more prominent. Is it a hardware issue?

Hello,I own a lenovo u310 notebook. Just recently harddrive broke, (made double check of that). And I cant be left without a laptop right now (linux booting from usb isnt an option. But I know theres ssd in this computer for caching purposes, can I anyhow use that ssd to install OS for a while? Problem is I cant access windows since hdd is broke (formated the harddrive in hopes of it to start working anyways), and booted linux or some partitioning tool like gparted doesnt detect the SSD. Still its there in bios boot options (ATA SSD1).So my question would be, Is there any way making SSD visible to some standalone formatting tool, and using the drive for installing os? edit: When trying to install debian the drive also doesnt appear.

I have just purchased a U310 Ideapad runnning windows 10 home, the first thing I did was take an image of the hard drive of the device in its state as just purchased ie without setting up the device or booting into the OS. I then proceeded to setup the device and all was well, I removed a lot of the bloatware but for some reason restored the saved image I had previously taken back onto the device obviously over writing the partitions which were there originally. Now OKR fails to find the original factory image, when I select the restore from initial backup option I get the message 'the program cannot restore the system partition because its structure is incorrect. You may have to recreate the partition to continue.' I am sure it is some easy fix to one of the partitions or something as I couldn't have done that much of a change, has anyone any ideas ?
