Lenovo Ideapad 100s microSD card reader not working

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 100s microSD card reader not working

I have a 100s -11IBY running Win 10 I have been using a Samsung 64gb Micro sd card formatted NTFS.and has been working ok and I have stored data. Recently the built in card reader no longer recognises the card or makes any sound when I insert or remove the card. The card reads as a Fat 32 on my desktop and now has no data stored. I have tried other cards which I know are working with in the built in cars reader with the same result.In divice manager on the 100s the SD Host controller lists 3 identical host controllers and state divice is working properly. Same with the SD storage class contoller. I have tried updating the drivers in both and it says the best driver for your divice is already installed . The 100S is about 4 months old Please help

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

Hello. I have a Lenovo ideapad 100s - 80R2 that I just bought a few years ago. The device is running Windows 10 Home, build 1511. I have recently bought a Sandisk 32GB microSDHC card for use of the built-in microSD card slot of the device. When I tried to insert the card into the slot, there was not "Hardware Insert" notification sound coming out of Windows. I thought the card wasn't working. When I managed to insert the card into a USB microSD card reader, the system was able to detect the card, so it means it's working fine, but the microSD card isn't. I tried to find any updates for the SD card controller of the device, but it says it's already the latest version. Any help?

Hello Lenovo Community, A user bought this computer a week ago and wanted me to reinstall it, as the user did not provide me with the manual, where it says not to remove any partions, I did this unknowingly of the warning. After the install I now have problems with the microsd card reader, the standard microsoft driver is not working properly and there is no driver on the lenovo support site. Could someone link to a working driver or if a Lenovo Employee could upload the correct driver on the support site. TIA Lasse

The card doesn't show up in My Computer.

I've looked on the Lenovo website for drivers but can't find anything specific to this problem.

Any ideas?

First off, I'm going to say this laptop was a Christmas gift from a friend. I do not have ANY computers in this house aside from this one. I use this laptop for blogging and listening to music as well as job hunting, however, it will not register the keyboard or touchpad at all. I called Customer Support and the best answer they could give me was to bring it back to the store I got it from--this was an incompetent answer to the problem. I have tried touching and holding the power button for 15 seconds and when it restarts, the problem is not fixed. None of the keys are working. Period. I have a mouse for a gaming computer, however, I do not have a keyboard to plug in to use. If I could get a response to this, that would be GREAT!!! I cannot log in or do anything with my lap top right now and am currently stuck doing things from my cell phone.

Hi Mlgood,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
As per the Lenovo datasheet, the maximum capacity support by IdeaPad 100S 11IBY microSD reader is 64 GB. Still you can stick it in an SD adapter and you're good to go but data is limited upto 64GB.
 
Let us know how you get on.

What is the maximum bus speed the Ideapad 100s-11 microSD slot provides.  Is it running off of a USB 2 bus or just what?   Some newer microSD cards have very fast read and write speeds but those speeds are dependent on the slot being able to support those speeds.  My question is what bus is the Ideapad's bus running on and what is it's maximum capability. The reason for this question is noone wants to purchase some expensive super fast microSD card only to find out the slot limits the speed. Thanks

Problem started around 11 pm last night, Feb 5th. I was in the middle of watching a tv show on Youtube, when the video started to slow down then freeze and the audio made a weird screeching noise. I tried powering off and back on, but it didn't help. And i see that i am unable to view videos on not just Youtube but Windows Apps as well. On Apps i get a "Video Failed to Play" message. And on Youtube a fuzzy screen shows up saying that an error occured. Audio is completely gone as well. I tried to listen to music samples on a website to test it, and no sound comes out. The Realtek High Definition Audio speakers are turned on, and all the way up to 100. I ran troubleshooters and it didn't show any problems, so i don't get what happened.

Hello Everybody , I would really need your help to figure this out ! yesterday, I used my card reader in my laptop ( ideapad 500-15ISK ) and I entered and SD-HC 4GB card on it , and copied some files. Then after it , I had a Memory stick Duo like this one : ?of course it was smaller than the slot, I thought I might try nevertheless ! ( I hope that this wasn't a bad idea and I burned my card reader !!! )  of course , it didn't work ! so I just removed and forgot about it ! today, I was trying again to put the SD-HC 4GB card,  and it didn't work, and I tried another one , it didn't work.I tried installing all the drivers in the support.lenovo.com that has to do with my laptop, still didn't work.  Anybody knows what could have happened ? What should I do ? did I damage my card reader ?  My laptop is relatively new, it has been only 4 months since I bought.

Hello My Ideapad 100S has in the last couple of days developed a curious problem. If I try to drag something using the touchpad, after holding down the left button, when I move my finger across the pad the machine behaves as if its receiving multiple double-taps rather than mouse-moves. So, for instance, if you do this on a map it does lots of zoom-ins. Any ideas, anyone?

Hi, I have a lenovo ideapad 100S, during 1 year I bought it on USA, now I am working on Nicaragua, so, I am currently with a problem with my powerfull laptop, after 3 month of using my computer, I have noted that when the back side of the screen when the lid is closed is Lightly pressed, on the screen appears some vertical lines over the display, sometimes, it dissapears less than an hour,over and over again, but today coming from my work, I was going to use the laptop, it showed up,It's been over 3 hours since showed up, and still is there. I know that is manufacturing defects, because the design must take it into account, make stronger and avoid weaknesses, even on the screens. I am programmer, it's horrible work with these lines.

Hey, I'm having a lot of trouble with installing Windows 7 on a Lenovo Ideapad 100S. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x86 on a USB using the USB DVD Tool, but it isn't detected on the system's boot menu no matter what I do. GPartEd works fine, which is confusing me even more. I haven't tested anything else yet but I'm downloading Linux Mint to be sure. I have absolutely no idea what the problem could be, and searching for a solution has turned up nothing. Any help is greatly needed, and feel free to ask for more information.

Hi. Just a few days ago, I purchase a 14.5 inch wide Lenovo IdeaPad 100s. I also own a TEAC Screen/Monitor, which I connect them together with a HDMI cord to have dual monitors. Recently, while I was playing a game on my computer, my screen just flashed white, and stayed white, but my other monitor (which I have them to be extended for more room) was completely responsive. I turned off my computer by holding down the power button until the charging and power button were both off, then switched it back on. Instead, the computer appeared to be on (the power and charging lights were switched on) but the screen was just blank and black and my dual monitor (the TEAC television) acted as my one and only monitor. I logged on and went to my settings, to check if there were any signs of my laptop screen working, but there wasn't it only said my TEAC monitor was the only screen I had. Any help of what I can do?  (NOTE: I use Windows 10)

It will not charge to 100%. I looked up on the internet and many suggest that it has something to do with the energy management setup. Suppose it  there are two option 1. fully use the battery 2. optimise the battery life. I search everywhere in my c:\ and I cannot find the "energy management" software. Others suggested that the battery is dying....but I just bought this laptop...how can that be? Please help....

Hi Luciu,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
System Tray > Lenovo Energy Management > Go to Settings > Turn OFF Conservation Mode > Remove AC adapter > Reinstall AC adapter > It should charge up to 100%.
 
Also, please do check that under the battery menu in Lenovo energy management, IT IS SET TO 'MAXIMUM BATTERY LIFE' to enable charging to 100%, not Optimised battery health as this will allow your battery to have a longer lifespan.
 
When i clicked on the battery, and selected "More Power Options," then clicked "change power plan settings" and then I went to "advanced power settings." There is a tab there for Lenovo Energy Management and you have to click "Enable Lenovo Energy Management." Then it pops up.
