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'm about to order the new yoga book c930, the one with the dual display (lcd + e-ink) setup. However, in my market (Sweden) only the m3 version with 128GB ssd and without pen is available as of now  Since this will be mostly a home web browsing 2-in-1 for me I'm fine with the performance and storage limitations but really would like to have a pen for it that works both for the LCD and the e-ink display for notes and sketching. Any hints as to which of all the different lenovo (or third party?) pens available that would work? Is the one that comes with the i5-version available separately? I haven't been able to find any guidance on lenovo.com and local pre-sales customer service didn't have any answer either unfortunately. Any guidance would be highly appreciated!

Is the Precision Pen that comes with the Yoga Book C930 available for purchase? Or will any of the other available pens work with this model (I realize only the original pen will probably connect magnetically).One other question, the pen I recieved didn't come with any replacement tips, will these be available as well?

Been having some trouble with the fingerprint reader. 1) it has generally been slow in operation. Many times it takes a few times before it works right. I've tried redoing it a few times. Just seems hit or miss. 2) Sometimes after opening the lid the fingerprint reader doesn't turn on.

The new Lenovo Yoga Book c930 with eInk screen is great, but currently the software is far away from its potential:* eink notes have to be explicitly copied to the main screen, no direct handwriting entry* no onenote support on the eink side* no acrobat pdf annotation on eink side* no ebook support yet* etc.Lenovo has already said that they are working on more features, but is there any roadmap or what features to expect?Cheers

I bought C930 13IBK model last month. It worked something wrong.1. did not auto rotate2. when battery fully charged and power line connected, didn't boot (hanging windows logo screen)3. when power line connected and battery fully charged, keyboard didn't work. (power line disconnect & reboot, keyboard do work)  I spent several hours for several days to find & try to fix because above problems are minior functions and can be some setting problems.I phoned service center twice and visited service center and got it was faulty product and certificates for that.I shoud go to the re-saller to exchage new one with that certificates.  Lenovo Vantage said every systems OK but windows device manager said one serial IO I2C host controller had problems.That means Lenovo's quality control standard did not test that. So faulty product can delivered to cutomer.  Customer should spend times & money to fix that problem. Customer shoud think that was bad luck? In that case, the only thing Lenovo did is, judged the customer's complain & print a paper. I cannot understand why customer shoud do all dirty things because of Lenovo's fault.I'll never buy Lenovo again because of quality control and service policy.

As I always do with my computers, I encrypted the whole diskof my new C930 Yoga Book using Symantec Encryption Desktop (PGP) Whole Disk Encryption. At startup a login screen is displayed, the PGP BootGuard screen, where a password needs to be entered. Everything went well until I restarded the computer and tried to enter the password. Somehow the eInk keyboard does not seem to work properly as nothin is entered as password, and only odd combinations of key strokes give some reaction at all. Nor can I conjure up a virtual keyboard by klicking (tapping) on the touch screen. I also tried to attach a USB keyboard, but that does not work either. How do a access a working keyboard at startup? Has anyone had and possibly solved this problem? Is there a way to enter BIOS to give priority to an external keyboard or disk?

Hi, I am looking for a laptop with a 4K screen. According to the specs, the X1 Carbon Gen 7 and X1 Yoga Gen 4 will have 51W battery. Does that mean even they will get the latest cpu (which some said there is not much different), they will have shorter battery life than the current Yoga C930 which has 60W battery? https://www.ultrabookreview.com/24380-2019-lenovo-thinkpads/https://www.ultrabookreview.com/24458-lenovo-yoga-c930-review/

Hi, I noticed that when I took the laptops out from a computer bag and immediately flipped them over into a tablet, the login screen showed up with a prompt to enter the password. However, virtual keyboard did not show up. I had to turn the laptps to laptop mode, entered the password and then flipped them back to tablet for the machines to function. This has happened to both my Yoga 730 15" 4K and Yoga C930 4K. Why? Perhaps it is not the virtual keyboard not showing up but the touch screens did not respond? Is this a common issue for the Yoga line?

I bought my ThinkPad X1 Yoga for around $1600 CAD with 2 years on-site warranty. The Yoga C930 is usually around the same price or more expensive, but the yogadays promotion right now made the base model $200 cheaper even with 2 years on-site warranty. Would you guys say that at $200 cheaper, the Yoga C930 is worth it? It has dual fans and a bigger battery, those seem to be the main advantages.

Hello!I bought this 2018 Yoga 730 15.6" just 2 days ago and I'm thinking about upgrading the ssdbcoz I've got only 256GB (M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4) which feels quite insufficient.So I'm wondering if it's possible to add another M.2 SSD to my laptop, so that I could use the additional SSD as a storage drive. I don't think this laptop has an empty 2.5" ssd slot. If I can't put another ssd on the motherboard, then buying a bigger M.2 SSD and replacing the existing one would be the only way to gain more capacity? Could someone enlight me pls!

I want to replace the original 256GB ssd which is too small. The 256GB ssd was cloned to the new 1TB with the help of the M.2 enclosure. I booted the laptop from the 1TB ssd by using the USB port as well as the USB-C port and no problem. I then installed 1TB to the laptop and IT DOES NOT BOOT! The PC freezed at the start page with rotating dot circle, and forever.. According to the test I did, the 1TB ssd and the enclosure look good and work normal. My laptop works well. Any suggestions/comments? Thanks.

The pen that comes along with the Lenovo Yoga C930 isn't working on my laptop. The battery shows full and I barely ever use the pen but I have many plans of starting to use it. It really saddens me that I left an HP laptop for a Lenovo just to come to this problem. It has only been 1 month since I've bought this laptop and I barely use the pen but then it doesn't work anymore. There was a time where I didn't charge the pen for a whole week but I put it back and didn't touch it ever since. It's impossible that anything could have happened to the pen because I left it in a drawer. The touch screen works perfectly fine.... I don't know what to do and I am really really sad/disappointed. I need help with this if anyone can let me know of anything I can do or what's wrong?

I purchased a Lenovo Yoga c930 last week and it got delivered today. I have been experiencing issues with the sleep and power options. As soon as I click the button to eject the pen, the laptop goes into sleep mode where I have to sign in again. The situation gets worse because sometimes the laptop would shut down randomly when the pen is ejected out or it is inserted back into the laptop. Does anyone have a solution for this issue or anyone faced a similar issue? I have checked the power options and I have set the power and sleep option as never.

Hello everyone! So after going back and forth which laptop i wanted i finally ended up getting a Yoga C930 which feels MUCH better compared to the 730 i had for about a day. The only concern i have for it right now is the fan noise is noticeable. I updated all of the drivers and did all of the windows updates, but it seems the fan is much more audible compared to the 730 i had. (I used the windows app and Driver Easy to do this) It's not entirely annoying but i do notice it. I also notice the laptop tends to get a bit warm. I know its only been a few hours but still its something i've noticed.  This is the exact one i purchased from Best Buy I've also noticed the Dolby Atmos Speaker System app apparently isn't compatible with my device? Also looking if anyone has recommendations on which usb c dongle to use so I can connect extra USB, display, and memory card reader? Some of the ones I?ve found on amazon don?t exclusively list if it works on the yoga c930

I have a brand-new Yoga C930 2-in-1 with a 1TB SSD and 16 GB RAM, which I'd like to run Ubuntu Linux on. I can't manage to boot from a USB (type A) pen drive yet, though. I managed to enter the BIOS (via this hint) and the "Boot from USB" option is "Enabled". When I exit the BIOS, though, saving the changes, having the USB pen drive plugged-in into the USB-A slot, Windows is booting up just normal. No USB boot happens, no boot menu is shown. Also, the usual pressing of buttons such as F2, F11, F12 or Del doesn't result in anything being shown from the BIOS. How do I boot from a USB drive then? Obviously, when there is a related option in the BIOS, it should be possible, shouldn't it?

Hello, I recently purchased a Yoga C930 (less than a week ago).  I had a few screen glitches and just thought it was normal for a new computer that hasn?t really run yet but today I turned it off and now it will not turn back on.  If I press the power button, the keyboard backlight turns on for about a second and sometimes the fan turns on but then it immediately turns back off.  This repeats itself every five seconds until I hold the power button and it turns off again.  Has anyone had a similar issue or know a possible solution?  I have tried to reset but there is no physical Nova button and I cannot access the Nova menu since the computer does not get that far when turning on.

My lenovo c930 (not the smaller book model) did not power on last night. When i would press the power button the computer would make a stange noise, kind of sounded when a car will not power on when it has a dead battery. However, when i pluged in the charger it powered on. The battery was not dead as when the laptop powered on the battery was about 30 percent.. i just bought this laptop 17 days ago, this is quite fustrating.. The device seemed to have a couple bugs the first couple days of use but i didnt think much of it when it went away.. i hope lenovo can take care of the issue..

I recently purchased the Yoga c930 to mainly draw on the go and do artwork in various apps and programs (mainly Photoshop, SketchBook, and Krita). However, this 2 in 1 is unable to download the wacom feel it driver ( I get a message saying that the wacom driver is not compatiable with the computer/tablet, which is wierd because the pen uses wacom aes technology) and I am having trouble with getting pressure sensitivity to work in almost everything I have tried to draw in. I even tried to change setting within the programs themselves, but the only one that really worked was Photoshop. Krita and Sketchbook still have no pressure sensitivity. There is also a Lenovo Pen Settings control panel for pressure sensitivity, but it does not really seem to make a difference in sensitivity when I change the settings there. Any suggestions as to how to get the pressure sensitivity to function properly on this computer would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to return the laptop and get the Yoga 720 13" becuase this computer is really nice otherwise, but I'm starting to think that may be the only option if I want to have a better drawing experience.

X1 Yoga 2018 model Technical specs says this: 4-in-1-cardreader (MicroSD) (SD, MMC, SDHC ja SDXC) But I don't see any place where to stick my SD cards, except the MicroSD. Does it come with some SD, MMC, SDHC ja SDXC dongle or what? I have sent Lenovo email about this about two weeks ago and since they have not send me anything back I try to find answer from here now.[offtopic]I have not bought the X1 Yoga yet but its one of the few computers I am considering to buy in near future. The laptop will come to travelling and it should have SD card reader so I can organize photos and videos with it. I would do some color correction and editing with it but all the hard work I do when I get back to home. It should also serve as multimedia machine in airplanes, airfields, busses and what ever. Thats why I think that 2 in 1 pc could be pretty good since its relatively light weight and I believe I will find good viewing angle for the screen everytime. Some times for example the airplanes seats are so small I cant open 15" mbp screen into good viewing angle and there for the screen colors are messt up. I would otherwise buy mbp but I am not fan of #dongle_life and had one Lenovo laptop in the past and it served me very well for many years and their customer support was top notch.

I am going to upgrade my laptop very soon.  I really like the X1 carbon but also fancy the Yoga.  I will be buy the highest performance available for my needs.   It appears the Carbon and Yoga can be purchased with the same i7 and ram configurations.   Ports are the same as well?  I need at least 1 thunderbolt connection.  Am I missing any performance differences between them a the high end? It would appear the biggest trade off is the extra size and weight of the Yoga?  The Carbon being more svelte?  I would not use the Yoga in tablet/pen mode but it would be nice to have and perhaps I find more applications for it. I am in IT admin - I wish they still had real Ethenet ports...  but I get the form factor will not support it. Thanks in advance for any all/help.

I have been having issues booting to usb (to install a fresh copy of windows enterprise. But i am unable to get it too boot off the usb( ive used the same usb stick to boot on other computers fine). It justg  ignores the usb stick and continues booting into windows on the ssd. id like to know if others here have had the same issue and what they did ti boot off a usb stick I used diskpart to create a primary partition in the usb and formatted with ntfs. In bios. Its set usb boot to enable .And ive turned off secure boot. Please help!

A:Yoga c930 unable to boot off USB

Hello and welcome,
 
If you're trying to boot in UEFI mode, your setup isn't correct.  I've never messed with enterprise before but to verify how it is installed (same as 10 non-enterprise) I just pulled down an eval ISO. Use a 64 bit ISO.
 
Use diskpart to configure your flash drive: select disk, clean, create partition primary, format fs=fat32 quick, assign.  Not NTFS, don't set it active.  Use your favorite archiving tool - the free 7zip or just Windows 10 Explorer - and extract the contents of the ISO to the flash drive.
 
BIOS can probably be at defaults.  Ssecure boot on or off doesn't matter.  Get to the boot menu (Fn + Power Button IIRC) and select the flash drive directly.  That should do it. Booted just fine on the first Lenovo laptop I tried.
 
[edit to add] Is this  a Yoga C930 or a Yoga Book C930?
