Ideapad 300 Freezes

Q: Ideapad 300 Freezes

My new Ideapad 300 frequently freezes while web surfing - most often while in Facebook. I have to shut down the lid and open it again to get it operating again. Sometimes I have to shut and open the lid a couple of times. Is this a hardware problem or a software problem?

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.)

I have a Lenovo Yoga-3 Pro and it does the exact same thing. It arbitratily STOPS. However my computer stops while doing anything, browser, Word, Excel, anything. I have done all the hardware checks and contacted support. They really had no solution that I did not already try. The number of problems I have had with this machine in 14-m of ownership have been so overwhelming I have ordered a new non-Lenovo laptop. I cannot take it any longer.

Hey. I've owned my Lenovo Ideapad 310 since black friday and since then I have had issues with my PC freezing itself, like a bluescreen without actually getting a bluescreen. Sometimes when I push it with alot of tabs and programs and sometimes when I not even using the pc.I need to do a force shutdown and restart it again. Anyone here with the same problem and knows how to fix this? This is REALLY annoying...

Hi; i ve just bought a brand new ideapad700 laptop 3 weeks ago and after one week the it started to freeze without giving any sign of cautions( even cursor is not responding) and needed to be shut down by holding the power button every time. I've read some suggestions from net and changed some power settings from control panel (just to give it a try), and it worked well for a while. But now , i am facing with the same problem again and thinking of returning it back ,but still i cannot explain the situation because it happens randomly. Maybe the win 10's power settings causes it, or an uncompatible screencard driver issue i don't know... But i am stucked right now.... Does anybody have the similiar problem with their ideapad? And any solutions? Thanks...

My Y700 is less than 2-month old. Recently, I was facing the following issue. I am able to repeat the issue by only boot up the laptop and leave it without running any other applications. 1. First, the keyboard becomes non-responsive after sometime. At this point, the mouse from touch pad still works, and I can continue the applications (if any) I already started. However, trying to launch any new application, even as simple as "cmd" or "taskmgr" will fail. 2. Some time later, the laptop totally freezes. Sometimes, it will reboot and enter the "Nova button mode" - but still, the keyboard freezes and I can't select any other options (once I tried to attach an external USB keyboard before it freezes, then in the Nova button mode, the external keyboard works, but any option, "normal boot", "recovery mode", or whatever, simply fails and hangs). Sometimes, it simply hangs. In both cases, the only thing I can do is keep pressing the power button to force shut down. This is really annoying. Anybody has similar experience? Any solution? (I could try factory restore, but come on...it is only 2-month old!)

Hey Guys,
 
I wanted to find the solution for my issue on my own by researching it on forums, however I almost tried everything and I got very tired of that so decided to write a massive post about, somebody might have experienced the same issue(s) and could help me out.
 
I purchased my Lenovo Ideapad 305(Processor: Intel Pentium N3540 processor(N3540): : Memory: 8GB DDR3L 1600 a year ago. Had WIN 8.1(64bit) on it, I have recently upgraded to WIN 10(64bit), the issues was present at 8.1 system as well, basically thats why I have upgraded it.But also done factory reset before upgrade. On WIN 10 the experience destroying situations are less, however most of them pretty much remained.
 
I only can guess my issue might be CPU related, could caused by the current driver (which is updated to latest version). CPU is massively overwhelming when I play games(10 year old: Call of duty2, on minimal graphics) Did once Dust Cleaning at Integrated Lenovo app. Issue remained.. Downloaded latest drivers from Win update, and Lenovo support site. CPU usage jumps top 100% randomly, when happens the situation below: Most of the apps are not responding when I use them.
 
Example: IE11 or Edge are not responding for 15-20 seconds when I log in to various sites. Some times the browser is running nicely and fast, but still randomly keeps not responding.. Its also affecting event viewer. When I launch and want to check for System log files it takes ages(30 secs) to load 500 event... Read more

Good morning, I've entered dozens of websites trying to figure out how to change this. If i'm pressing any button on the keyboard, the touchpad freezes. My OS is windows 10 home, the notebook is the ideapad 310 15ISK, i've tried to go into sinaptics conf of the touchpad, but there isn't the menu as there are in others notebooks, there are only a few options about rotation, zoom, scrolling, movements with multiple fingers etc. I noticed that on the configurations of the system there is an option where I select the delay of the touchpad after typing, and I've chose no delay, so after less than 2 secs it comes back to normal, but it still freezes while typing, and I'd really like to change that. How can I do that?Oh, and I believe it's worth mentioning that I'm from Brazil. I've put a print from the configs.By the way, there is this bar... "Controle da palma" that would mean "Palmcheck", but it is disabled... I belive it would solve this situation, how could I manage to turn it on??

I installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my Lenovo ideapad Y430 (which came with Vista Home Premium 32-bit). It worked fine for a few hours. However, it now freezes up within 1 minute after I sign on after rebooting. The cursor stops moving, Task Manager won't come up, no disk activity, etc. Booting in Safe Mode works fine, so I'm thinking it's an issue related to a driver or service that doesn't load in Safe Mode. Event Viewer doesn't reveal much of use; only the fact that I needed to power off without shutdown. Vista still runs fine on another partition.

Has anyone seen anything like this, or have any ideas on how I can get Windows 7 running again (e.g., by identifying and removing/updating the offending driver/server, if that's what's causing the problem)? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

A:Windows 7 Pro freezes on Lenovo Y430 ideapad

(Self-plagiarisation: )

The fact that it seems fine (as it's never happened - not even once?) in safe mode is A Good Thing, because it suggests that the causes are software-based. Something that loads in normal mode but not safe mode is presumably the culprit.

One way to start troubleshooting is with the MSCONFIG utility. Start off by choosing the "diagnostic" startup mode and rebooting. If that works, as in there are no hangs, go to "selective" startup and disable/enable the various optional components until you zero-in on the culprit.

If "diagnostic" mode doesn't stop the hangs from occurring in normal mode, uninstall your anti-virus and any 3rd-party firewalls (disabling them is not enough). Test what happens when running without them.

Sounds like you got a driver from Microsoft update that is causing you problems. Try a system restore and then turn off automatic updates so you can then choose which updates to install. Watch out for driver updates and do them one at a time till you find the one messin' you up.

NOTE: Just because it's from Microsoft doesn't mean it's the best choice.

Last month I already had this problem 3 times, before I did not. The problem was when I started the laptop, the LENOVO screen appeared, but it freezed. The dots normally running in a circle below LENOVO did not appear. Last week was even worse, because my screen freezed when using, then I got a message saying that the laptop needed to restart but when it did it freezed again.  I already tried restarting by the power on/off button or waiting a long time before it kept on with the starting process, but both did not work. The only solution seemed to be waiting a few hours with the laptop shut down and then starting it, but that is of course not the best solution I guess. Is there any way I can fix this problem?

My Yoga Ideapad 13 often freezes (no warning or indication) and then will shut down after about five minutes.  There's no frequency or activity pattern that I can work out, sometimes it happens soon after I start up the notebook and at other times I can be working for days without incident, and I don't think it's related to overheating or processor demand either. I have tried all the updates I can find but still have this problem.  It seems to happen more when I am connected to my docking port, but that may be just coincidence as I use it more than just the notebook on its own. Although I have my Office Apps autosave set for 1 minute I still lose work, or have to waste time recovering the data back to the working file.

Hi. I have a problem with the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15D. I was using it normally one day, using Google Chrome, when it suddenly stopped responding. The whole PC stopped responding (although I could still use the mouse normally) and I had to manually shut it off. When I tried turning it back on, it took at least 10 minutes, and froze again about 5 minutes later. Now, the computer freezes after 10 minutes of use, even when I'm not even logged in.

Unfortunately though, I've been experience an annoying black screen freeze for no apparent reason.  Some days the laptop will work fine for several hours and other days it'll keep turning black and freezing up for no apparenent reason every 15 or so minutes. I did open it up to add an SSD to the available slot and move the operating system to it, but I don't see how this would cause a problem, ive even been through every device in the device manager to check for driver and bios updates too. Does anyone know a solution?

I have seen some other posts on this forum to try to fix my problem but I still haven't found a fix. I have reinstalled windows, moved some games to my ssd, updated BIOS, updated graphics card drivers / downgrade drivers, etc and the problem continues to happpen. This it what actually happens: Im like 1 min into the game and then all of a sudden the whole laptop freezes and the audio from the game keeps on repeating. The laptop doesn't let me alt + tab, alt + F4, the mouse and keyboard doesn't work at all, I'm forced to do a force shut down. This problem only happens when I'm using the AMD grahics.

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

So one of my friends is running Vista 64-bit with her DXdiag attached.

I also have attached her Windows 7 (today, a more recent Dxdiag).

Her computer was fine about two months ago and shes had it for 13 months. Then these "freezes/lockups" started randomly throughout the day. She'll be gaming or just browsing the internet with a few AIM/MSN windows opened, random programs will lock up and freeze while others stay perfectly functional. Windows seldom freezes along with the programs, but it does happen occasionally where she can't use task manager and the windows button is forced to freeze for about 2-10minutes. She hasn't had freezes above 13ish minutes because she manually shuts down her computer about that time.

Sometimes when she freezes, she gets past bios and while windows was loading it sent her to a black screen that didn't load anything. She had to keep restarting a couple of times and waiting 10ish minutes and eventually her windows loaded up. She says this doesn't usually happen either.

She wiped about a month ago and it didn't really do anything. At all. She did a clean format/reinstall of windows and these freezes still happen with the same occurrence rate/severity/duration.

I also have the event viewer logs of her system, and programs. They were taken right after the freezes. Not sure if these help, they seem like a bunch of crap to me, but just incase? I can't tell anything for certain from it but it does say there are some errors.

I am running windows XP home edition SP 2, accessing internet via Road Runner. I upgraded Internet Explorer. It froze so I killed it and restarted again. It finished properly the second time, or so it seemed.

IE7 ran OK the first time. The 2ns time it froze on a blank window. No toolbars, no status bar, no nothing, just the frame and blank inside.

Other symptoms: Internet Options opens up OK from the control panel, and every tab seems OK, but when I go connections, LAN settings, the button shows depressed, and the thing freezes.

I can access the WWW without a problem via Firefox. Outlook sends and receives email without a hitch. But any program that checks internet options to see about proxy settings or similar, freezes. Example Intellicast and the Zinio reader. Example the setup program for Max Registry Cleaner and Registry Mechanic.

I ran a virus scan with AVG. The machine was clean. I cleaned up the registry with RegistryFix. There were a lot of lose ends, now it is clean. I ran AVG Anti Spyware. It has a residue of 45 tracking cookies, nothing else. I uninstalled Intellicast and the Zinio reader. Nothing made a difference.

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer. One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan. You have a very severely infected system -- likely because of the lack of antivirus & firewall software.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can clean this machine but I cannot guarantee it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do.

Mallware/virus attack included the following:

- Windows security warnings popped up, although these got very confusing, as malware/virus was impersonating the Windows alerts, and produced a duplicate security shield in the taskbar.
One warning indicating AVG as unauthorised virus software with option to remove! I did ignore that one!

Hi all,For several months my PC has been frustratingly slow. However, I have dealt with it. Now however, when I click on "start" my PC will completely freeze, not allowing me to access anything.

I've an Asus f5sl laptop with Vista Home Premium (32bit) but it's been freezing on me lately.

When I boot up, it gets to the black screen with the green bar but after a few seconds, the green bar freezes and I can't log in. Occasionally it boots up after around half an hour but then Vista periodically freezes for a few seconds before resuming (which is annoying when trying to write out something etc)
I don't see any problems in Safe Mode so is possibly a driver? I've updated all my drivers, completely updated using WIndows Update, ran antispyware, used System Restore etc

Only problem is; I've moved to a new country, and like a fool, I left my Vista start up disk back home. Which I would otherwise have tried.

Thanks

I have had this issue for awhile, it comes and goes.

I will be playing a computer game, it can be anything from world of warcraft to counter strike and occasionally the computer will freeze. As far as I can tell it will not respond to keyboard input or mouse movements, I do not hear any sounds when it freezes and the monitor will be frozen on whatever window is active at the time.

The only thing I can do at this point is restart the computer and shut down the computer. Upon doing either while the computer boots up it will freeze at random points (windows icon, log in screen, sometimes while the bios is loading).

Not sure if this makes any sense but if I shut down the computer and unplug the power supply and plug it back in then turn the computer on, it usually boots without freezing. I really doubt its an overheating problem because I do not let the computer cool down between restarts or the unplug/plug thing but I am open to all suggestions.

I have random freezes sometimes they are glitchy and rarely BSOD all on bootup or up to about half hour in (which also turns of the mouse). Also youtube doesn't autoplay playlists and all sugestions next to the video are black. This started a few weeks to a month ago, first it seemed just a minor annoyance but it started to become more often the last few days. I've tried some checks but without success.
Also I remember the week before those crashes that twice the screen driver crashed for a second or 2 and then a message popped up about how a monitor driver crash was adjusted, always when I played a certain game that is still in beta so I taught it was the game.

I posted the same problem a few weeks ago in another forum, without success so I try it here. I dont have a restore point from before that and nothing special in the installed drivers list.

Hello a friend of mind brought there laptop over to me as she was having issues with it freezing so i said i'll have a look for her.

Well its pretty bad. The booting up takes longer then expected, and when you log in well its just a nightmare. After the start up programs have loaded you can navigate for around 5 seconds and then the system hangs and locks its self up (not literally). I know all she wants is her photos. So after battling (waiting for the hangs to pass 5-8 mins) i manage to get to the folder with pictures and start a transfer to my usb, which get so far and then im guessing the hang's stop the transfer.

I thought i'd try safe mode and the hangs are even there. The only one which i can seem to do anything with is Cmd, but xcopy doesn't seem to move past the first 5 files when copying.
I have tried Windows Easy Transfer. which pauses and seems to stop.

I have a 17' Samsung 700Z laptop about two years old. Lately, it has been freezing up. I'm not sure if this is a Windows issue or a driver issue or something else. It usually freezes when I am gaming but sometimes freezes when I'm using Firefox as well. Freezes, no mouse movement, audio glitches out and the only fix is to restart it. It will freeze within ten minutes again though.

My problem: I have been experiencing (situational) freezes while using my PC, these freezes require me to hold down the power button and reboot.

Details: The situations in which my pc freezes is in low or next to no stress situations, this includes; sitting on the desktop, browsing the web, idle mode, messaging people over steam and msn, and many other little things that shouldn't be causing any problems, right?

The situations in which my pc does not freeze is in games (to avoid my pc freezing while typing this I am sitting in the main menu of a game using the Steam web overlay). I can play intensive games at their maximum settings and my PC never freezes, unless it is the game's fault, and that has only happened on one occasion. It does not freeze when in low stress gaming situations either, like in the main menu of a game.

I think it is hardware related, as it happened on both of my completely separate (and individually formated) installs of Windows XP and Windows 7 (I reinstalled Windows 7 once).

This problem has occurred with both out of the box and fully updated drivers for all pieces of hardware, on XP and 7.

Errors messages:

All error messages occur before my OS is loaded and just after I have rebooted after a freeze. On my old XP install it froze and actually had to recover the system BIOS, this is when I noticed a red and orange light on my motherboard, along with 3 other green lights (the 1st one is red, the second is orange).

Hi to everybody. I have read tons of forums about this issue and I tried to do what advised, but I couldn't solve this issu with my PC.
I upgraded my system 1 month ago, but I didn't achieve a stable configuration. New componets are MB, CPU, RAM and SSHD. I have suspects on PSU even nominal power should be ok.

---PC Configuration:

Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core i7-4770K
Asus Z87-K
KHX2133C11D3K4/16GX Kingston HyperX (4x4GB) Memory
Ati Radeon HD5850
Crucial MX100 2.5" 256GB SATA III Solid State Drive
PSU Modular Power Supply ATX 700W
keyboard logithech usb wireless
mouse advent wireless
---Symptoms:

Immediately after the boot, the graphic card fan starts increasing speed and then the system freezes. If I disable and re-enable the graphic card, fan stops overunning immediately and run normally; the system freezes later, randomly.
After 3-4 hard resets, the system asks me to restore the system. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

After downgrading the graphic drivers, the system appeared stable for some days. But now it started again freezing in a different way: rather than increasing the card's fan speed, the graphic card starts flickering. It stops if I disable and re-enable the graphic card, but it starts again after few minutes and the system freezes.

Freezing mechanism: explorer stops responding, but the mouse pointer is still working. After 20-30 seconds mouse freezes as well. It happens randomly in idle state, using google chrome or ... Read more

A:Windows 7 64 bit freezes after few minutes. Explorer hangs and then freezes.

Unless the new hardware you fitted is almost identical to the old, which I doubt, you should do a clean install of Windows. The main reason is the drivers from the old stuff are still around and are messing things up.
