Q: new owner of Ideapad 120S

I am a new owner of a Ideapad 120S purchased yesterday on Black Friday.I have mostly owned Dell laptops previously. I am guessing that when I power the laptop the first thing I need to do is create a backup on a USB flash drive. Any gotchas I should know about?

Preferred Solution: new owner of Ideapad 120S

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.)

Yep, backing up is a good practice.

Other than that, you should be good to go. Enjoy your new machine!

Hi, I have a new Ideapad 120S that I really enjoy using.  However after only a few months use it won't accept Windows 10 Upgrade. I've put very little on this machine, probably no more than maybe 500 MB of files and installed programs.  There are no movies, no downloaded music, none of that. System cleanup has been done and Recycle Bin is empty.  It keeps telling me I need to delete 8 GB of data. Say whaaaat??  I show about 2 GB free right now. It's obvious that there is space being taken up, probably by a system file, perhaps hidden. I saw a number of posts online complaining about a large file associated with an upgrade taking up valuable space on this small 32GB drive.  So, what do I do?  I like the computer.  I understand the necessity of maintaining updates to the operating system. But something is really amiss here where such a new computer won't allow O/S updates.  What's the secret to opening up the drive space?  I don't want to return it because of this.  Thanks! Ken

so yesterday afternoon, I was watching a youtube video and realized that the spacebar was no longer functioning as a play/pause button. I then realized that none of the other keys were working other than the power button. I followed the troubleshooting steps here. I did the last step, which seemed to work for a short time, yet when I went to youtube again and used the touchpad to forward the video, the keyboard stopped working again. I went to do step 3 again, but this time, it would continuously enter one letter. I shut down my laptop 3 times, and the same thing happened all 3 times. finally, I let the battery drain and powered it on this morning. the keyboard can no longer be fixed by use of step 3. I am using the on-screen keyboard now which is very time-consuming and which has been working throughout this entire process.

Hi mgloria,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would connecting an external USB keyboard work?
 
As mentioned on the guide, " If failed keys do not work, the issue should be PC hardware issue with high possiblity" , you may need to call in technical support for the issue.

Sorry for the cross-post but thought it best to post a new topic to be specific.Following on from this topic... Are there any 120S variants that have eMMC and the M.2 port? Unless some variant shipped without the M.2 connector, I would suggest all of them have it. From the manual, even the 120S-11IAP with HDD variant still looks like it has the M.2 port - not that you can use it (the battery appears to interfere). In fact, if all variants ship with the M.2 connector, then the only variant that cannot use the M.2 port would be the 120S-11IAP with HDD, yes..?!?! The units without a HDD appear to have an "L" shaped battery pack that occupies the HDD location exposing the M.2 slot.Can anyone confirm whether the 81A400DNAU variant sold in Australia has the M.2 connector and "L" shaped battery pack...?

Now I don't actually know if this is the correct subject to put this on, but when I looked for it the settings it said my laptop is an Ideapad 120S-11IAP, so this is close enough. Essentially the title. Usually happens when I'm playing games set in a Google Chrome window (likely HTML urls). Help would be appreciated, as it's annoying as hell to want to peek at a Youtube video and then go back to the game to see my progress has been lost.

Hello everyone, bought this laptop couple of weeks ago, running fine EXCEPT... Right side USB3-port is somehow broken/malfunctioning/etc., when I plug in my external 500GB Transcend Storejet USB3 drive it won´t get detected at all, not in Windows (just updated to 1803 without cure), nor in UEFI setup or in Live Linux. In Windows, all that I get is constant Windows detection sound, that continues as long as drive is plugged in. Strange thing is that all other devices like mobile phones, USB sticks or mouse work just fine in that port. And same external drive works just fine when plugged into left side port. And of course in other computers as well. Maybe this is some kind of power issue? And if so is this a feature or system failure? One would assume that all ports can provide adequate power to USB devices?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I purchased my HP from a big computer store with Vista home installed on it. It was an out of the box sale (I thought I could avoid a wait for the comptuer I wanted). The company that sold it to me was listed as the administrator. The old owner took off their password before I took possession of the computer I purchased. I followed instructions on how to put on a password to start the computer. However, there are dozens of fiels named after the previous administrator. I tried to find out how to change the administrator globally to my name. There is still an administrator account name and it appears the previous administrator is still above my permission status - even though i am the computer owner, don't think I am the ultimate administrator yet.

I read that not being able to use screen print was a result of not being the administrator. I can't make the screen print work either.

I assume some members have dealt with these matters before. I would greatly appreciate anyone directing me to some good "how to fix" information.

Thank you

I recently bought an Acer AX3810 with Vista 7 Home Premium 64 bit from the widow of my neighbor. I had transferred all his personal files and copied all the photographs to an external hard drive for her then deleted all the files using "Eraser". I cannot seem to be able to delete the previous owner as administrator. His file has a little padlock symbol on it. I changed his name to mine in the "Manage user accounts" but no matter, it is still "him" that is logged on. I created a new account in my name and then changed the status from standard to administrator but he is still "there". I feel like I am being haunted. Any ideas?

Hello Nick, and welcome to Vista Forums.

The only way to change the C:\Users\Owner folder name is to create a new administrator account, then delete the old C:\Users\Owner account from within the new account. Be sure to copy the contents that you want to save from the old accounts user folders into the corresponding new account's user folders to restore them to the new account.

I purchased a new desktop operating on Windows Vista. Now, since I do all my computing from home, I have had little need of my very basic laptop. The laptop is a panasonic toughbook pc that is still operating on windows 98. I purchased it Feb. 2, 2007. I lent it to someone that has been a friend for about 1 and a half years. I lent it to friend because friend stressed the need of a computer NOW but offered to purchase it in increments LATER when financial situations could afford it.

Friend kept contact more frequently than usual to learn all of my laptop's operations. After awhile, friend's (cell phone) number changed and a variety of people are consistently saying that friend is never there at friend's known residence. Finally, some young child at friend's residence (maybe a cousin or nephew) told me that friend has moved. Now, I have no contact with friend. Friend seems to have run off with my laptop for FREE and won't respond to e-mails. I've never had this much trouble contacting friend.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IS: Is there any way that I can CHANGE MY ACCESS PASSWORD ON MY LAPTOP FROM MY DESKTOP to better the chances of getting in contact with friend?

I have all the information on the laptop from the company that I purchased it from, can obtain any information that I don't have from the company that has my information on laptop purchase, and I created the original access password myself, so, I know what it is but ... Read more

Hi all ..  I think my machine picked up a bad graphics driver( not real sure -- it was a update though) , it started BSOD'ing then eventually would only run for a few minutes.  To make a long story short, I decided to just reload it.  The onboard system reset would fail with a black screen and no response after several phases and two restarts.  So I downloaded a Levovo boot media for my PC and still no go.  It makes it thru about %90 of the relaod process, reboots after a cleanup script runs, then gets stuck at a black screen  ( no curser, ctl-alt-del doesnt work ..  nada, deader than a doornail)   Im forced to reset at that point.. then the next next boot never fully loads windows.  I get a error message "the computer restarted unexpectedly ...   restart the computer and restart the installation". I've tried mutilple install/fix processes .. but nothing works.   Anyone else seeing this ?   Any ideas ?

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?

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.

First, allow me to say I love my Lenovo Products. I started with a G550 Laptop. Good performance and reliable. Still running great. I then bought a H520 Desktop. Worked great until last Saturday. 3 months shy of 4 years. I think the Power Supply has a short. Was using it, then lost power. When I moved it, I pressed the power button and it came alive for a few seconds.My questions are about my new H30-05. Since the DVD Player is vertical, how do I position disc to hold in place?I have an old HP Officejet G85. Sometime I can get Test Print but nothing more. I always get unidentified error. My G85 worked great on H520. I have removed driver many times. Windows 10 no longer detects it. I have to add it manually with no luck. Any sggestions? Debating whether buying Epson XP-830 or HP Envy 7640.Thank you for any assistance
