Lenovo Y50 and Windows 10 ver 1803 Upgrade Problem

Q: Lenovo Y50 and Windows 10 ver 1803 Upgrade Problem

Hello guys: I have Windows 10 ver 1709 on my laptop which is working great. I have tried instaling Windows 10 ver 1803 two times already (with one month gap) on my laptop without success. When it finishes installing and reboots the computer, it never recovers from it. I see a black screen where mouse is enabled and nothing else. Both times, I have reverted back to version 1709. I have checked Lenovo's portal for my computer and I dont see any software/driver upgrades that I need that were released in the last 180 days. Can anyone tell me if I need to upgrade any driver before trying the upgrade? I have the following specs: Product: 20378BIOS: 9ECN43WW(V3.03)

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Why i can't upgrade my Windows 10? I know the answer to my question. Drivers. Why have you stopped to support this laptop from 2016? Why don't you release updates? I need to upgrade to the new version of Windows. Maybe there are some ways.Error code: 0x80240034.When the update is installed, at the last stage the update is canceled and the old version is rolled back.

Hi, I have just installed Windows 10 (Build 1803) and I have ran Leanovo Vantage on here to update all drivers and firmware, however for some reason I cannot increase (or decrease) the brightness of the laptop at all. I did some research into this and I saw this has been an issues before on some other models but I couldn't seem to find anything related to the P51. The screen is visable, however I would say it is currently fixed at around 40-50% brightness. Has anybody come across this before and is there anything I can try to do to fix this?  Regards, Jonathan.

Hello, I have some issues after upgrading my Carbon X1 5th to Windows 10 1803 published yesterday from Windows Update.I have installed the update this morning and everything seems to be ok, but this afternoon my computer has frozen :- My screen seems to be normal with mouse icon and my apps.- Mouse icon was moving normally.- But :* if I click somewhere, no reaction of the computer.* Ctrl ALt Del wasn't more responsive.The only way that I have find is to hard shutdown the computer. After the shutdown, computer is working normally during  variable time from a few minutes to several hours before a new freeze. I have already try the previous Candidate Windows 1803 version (Build 17133.1)  and I had the same issues.The only workaround that I have found is to remove the update. I'm using the Lenovo Windows image from the recovery tool.Have someone else the same issue ? Thank you.

Hello, I am trying to update toe Windows version 1803, and have encountered inumerable errors, no matter what I seem to do. Speaking with a Microsoft tech. via the live chat, he said that Lenovo has not released the drivers necessary to run version 1803, there I continue to get errors. I feel this is not the case, because I am pretty sure others have updated to 1803 that also have the Yoga 720. Any advice? Thank you.

I recently did a full wipe and  reinstall of my PC which coincided with the update to the latest version of Windows 10 Now I find I get periods of terrible keyboard lag (lost characters or sometimes double characters) and sometimes my mouse slows down. Everything else works fine - and the PC (A Thinkcentre M93) is fully responsive, it's usually just the keyboard input that's affected. I've tried a different keyboard and the same thing happens. I'm not low on resources and the only pattern I've seen is that it seems to affect the USB 3.0 ports, not the USB 2.0 port. When I plugged my Wifi in the USB 3 port I kept getting disconnected and losing connectivity. I'm guessing the problem is with the USB ports but what do I do? I've run the Lenovo update utility - none available. Am I better downgrading my drivers and if so, which ones (the chipset drivers?) I've not seen similar reports from anyone else so it must be something on my system! Rob

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad P50 laptop that I have been using with an external Dell Ultra HD 4K Monitor P2415Q running with a resolution of 3840x2160 @ 60HZ using DisplayPort.  Initially the laptop was running Windows 10 version 1607. Under this version of Windows 10 the external display worked properly regardless if the BIOS ?Graphics Device? setting was set to ?Hybrid  Graphics? or ?Discrete Graphics.? Unfortunately, since Windows 10 now forces updates when new versions are released I was not able to stay on this version. When Windows 10 updated itself to version 1709 using the external monitor described above stopped working. When the external monitor was plugged in (both DisplayPort and HDMI) it would briefly display an image and then go black. The Nvidia display adapter would then show as not working in the Device Manager. I spent  a significant amount of time working with Lenovo technical support uninstalling and re-installing drivers etc. Nothing worked, I was still not able to use the external monitor. After some further experimenting I found that I could get the external monitor to work if I set the BIOS ?Graphics Device? setting to ?Discrete Graphics.? It would not work with the BIOS set to ?Hybrid Graphics.? Last week Windows updated itself to version 1803 and the external display problems have returned with some additional incorrect behaviors. As I stated in the previous paragraph under version 1709 the external monito... Read more

This issue is caused by a windows 10 upgrade.  The touchpad is unresponsive if the laptop is woken from sleep mode.  The touchscreen, keyboard, and rest of the machine function normally.  The touchpad works normally if I restart or hard reboot the machine.  This was not an issue prior to the windows 10 upgrade and is not an issue if I uninstall that upgrade.  Is there a fix so I don't have to uninstall windows 10?

I am using Windows 10. I made a Windows update. The version of the 1803 OS has been disabled after I updated the 17133.1 version. I downloaded and did not download the driver for the graphics card from Lenovo Support. He's making trouble. I also downloaded the latest driver from Intel support, which is incompatible with this version of Windows. How we can solve this problem ?

Hello!My 720S-13ARR was upgraded from 1703 (it came with that OS) over 1709 to 1803 now. I don't know whether this error occures only after the update to 1803, but when the device goes to standby mode (either after some time or manually triggered in the startmenu) it does not resume from this. The power light is on, but the screen remains black.Because I suspected some drivers might be messed up after three upgrades (or might simply not be compatible) I downloadad 1803 64bit and did a clean install. It found all drivers itself, so I did not use the ones provided by Lenovo for 1709. But the problem persists.Bios is 29WW.Any help/suggestions?ThanksMoriarty

After forcing me to install the latest Windows 10 update 1803, my Bluetooth can't connect anymore.

Trying to rollback to previous version, problem still exists. Not even clear if it did restore, although I can see now it is version 1709 it also says version 1803 is successfully installed, so it clearly doesn't do a full restore to the previous version (in
that case my Bluetooth would still wok also!)
System restore keeps failing.
Is there any solution for this? Or need to do a full reset of windows, and force to disable windows updates?
Windows updates mainly causes trouble with WIDI, and now Bluetooth also.  
No Idea where I can get help, or what is the correct forum to post this.

A:lenovo G40 ~ 70 ram upgrade problem

Hi Ayato,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are looking for RAM upgrade for your Lenovo G40-70 laptop.
 
As per the specification of this model , the maximum memory supported by this model is upto 16GB DDR3L 1600Mhz.Hence I would suggest you to look into DDR3L RAM as the RAM slots in the laptop will only support the same. And "L" in DDR3L refers to low voltage.
 
Click here for the model specification.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists.
 
Best regards,

When I mute the microphone (Fn-F4), the keyboard does not work anymore, it is not possible to type anything. Some keys take screenshots when muted, looks like the keyboard is remapped (or something). Unmuted, keyboard is fine. Went through the routine of uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver, the audio driver, etc. One thing, when I uninstall the audio (Realtek) driver, the keyboard functions properly. Of-course, it is no longer possible to mute the microphone. Everything is up-to-date. But the laptop feels a tad sluggish.

Hello everybody! I hope all is well wherever you are!

I am having an issue with the latest, major windows 10 update.

When I originally tried to download the thing I lost WiFi connection very briefly. (I know school boy error using WiFi while updating)

Now when I try to update it stops at 80% and comes up with the message 'We cant install updates because other updates are in progress.' Before this it came up with ERROR 0xc1900107.

No other updates are running (as far as I can tell) I also ran system file checker which came back fine.

I finally downloaded the update assistant but it doesn't work that way either.

Any help would be really appreciated!
