My Yoga 910 turns off the external screen - not when I do anything at all - but when sitting in front of it with external screen. When I leave the desk - then it turns itself off - or rather turns the external screen off. It is sooo weird - I do not TOUCH ANYTHING - just by myself standing up and walk away. It does not happen every time - more like in periods - some days it days - everytime I go away. Other days it just behave normally. This happens when i use my Yoga as a desktop with external screen, external mouse and external keyboard and only using external screen. Bob Johnston

Purchased new from Best buy in May 2017.  All has worked perfectly until now.  Left my computer for a while while it did some Win10 updates and come back and the Lenovo splash screen is on the screen.  Will not go past that.  I can shut it down by holding the power button but when restated the keyboard lights up and the splash screen comes up and that is it. I have tried pushing the little recovery button while the laptop was off and it does the same thing as the power button and sticks at the splash screen.  $1800 door stop!!! Anyone got any suggestions

Hi there,  My Lenovo Yoga 710 IKB 15'' Laptop has had many problems. The fan was making noise and I started a topic here that was ridiculously marked solved when it wasn't, and now I have this new problem. For some reason, my screen has been blinking white (see attached pictures). Sometimes the white screen is blinking, sometimes it stays for a few seconds and other times it's not there at all but is clearly still an issue. I have already updated both the Intel and NVIDIA display drivers and when I run a scan I'm told there are no updates available. When I run a game or anything that requires the computer to switch to using the NVIDIA card, there is also a buzzing sound coming from the side of the computer, although this is not present when the Intel card is being used (the white screen appears no matter what I'm doing or which graphics card is being used).  I like this laptop but these are really too many problems. I bought this as a replacement for another laptop as I'm a student who really urgently needs to use a computer. Is lenovo going to fix this??

A:Lenovo Yoga 710 Screen turns white

I didn't see or respond to your first thread, but the temperatures (42C idle and 65C gaming) see normal.  85C or 90C is a high temperature under load but not temperatures in the 60's.  (Most CPUs, desktop or laptop, have thermal shutdown when a CPU hits about 105C.)  The thread said to contact support and gave you a support document to reference for fan noise.  Your fans would be running when your temperatures are in the 60's, but not at high speed.  Did you do that?  I didn't mark it solved, but if I read the questions and the response, I would have thought the issue was solved, although someone should have said that 65 was OK.  If you had posted back and support couldn't find the support document, that would have meant that it wasn't solved.
 
Regarding the white screen,  you are going to need to contact support for warranty repair.

So my Lenovo Yoga would start to boot and the light on the side and keyboard would light up, but then it would turn off again. Then it would start to boot up (without the screen actually turning on) and turn off again. It would just cycle through this, so I held down the power button for 10 seconds, and now it does not turn on at all- no lights, no anything. Any suggestions?

Hi Just want to share my latest experience after reading many posts of Yoga 920-13IKB (i7-8550 / 8G / 512G / 4K screen) incompatibility with Lenovo USB-C Travel Hub. I had this new Yoga 920 laptop for about a week, replacing my previous Yoga 900 (13.3", QHD+, i7-6560U, 256G, 8G). I have been using the Dell USB-C to HDMI/VGA/Ethernet/USB 3.0 Adapter (DA200) with the Yoga 900 without any problems. However, I can say with certainty that the Yoga 920 is incompatible with the Dell DA200 adapter. After reading many posts, I finally decided to purchase the Lenovo USB-C Travel Hub (4X90M60789) as a replacement. I had a local store rang Lenovo to confirm that it would work with my Yoga 920 before making the purchase. It arrived yesterday, and with two days of using and testing the connections Lenovo USB-C Travel Hub (Ethernet/HDMI/VGA/USB3.0); I can say that it works as expected. I'm not sure why Lenovo does not update their website to include the model Yoga 920 to be listed on the "Hardware Compatibility" list, as this will simply for the enduser to check - http://support.lenovo.com/docs/usb_c_travel_hub

Hello everyone,  I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 720 13IKB. I've only have the unit for about three (3) weeks and the batter is no longer able to charge when connected to the power supply that came with the unit. I checked the AC adapter to make sure that it was properly connected to PC and it was. I plugged it to different outlets and it didn't help. I bought a replacement powersupply from my local MicroCenter and still nothing. I checked the Control Panel, open up the Power Options to see if there were any settings in there but nothing to show why it wasn't chraging. Then Opened the Device Manager. Under "Batteries" I saw two items, one for the battery and another listed as "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery". I Opened each item, which will brought up the Properties window. Under the "Driver" tab looked for "Update Driver." I went through the two options and did the same process of updating drivers. I went through the driver update process for all options. Once the drivers are all up to date, I rebooted the laptop and plug it in again. Then i unninstalled "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" completely and reboot. Still the problem persists.  I even updated all the windows Updates. Then I opened Lenovo's Companion app. I updated all the drivers that need updating and nothing changed. I still have my PC connected to AC power and the battery isn't charging. I opened the lenovo setting app and checked under battery section... Read more

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 13IKB No longer charging

Is it not charging at all, or just stuck at around 60%.    I ask because there i an option in Energy Management to select Maximum Battery Life, or Optimized Battery Health, and if set the latter (which I believe is the default), it will only charge to about 60 percent of capacity in an attempt to prolong the life of the battery.    Setting it to Maximum battery life will allow the batter to charge to 100% and you will get a longer run time, but you may have to replace the battery sooner.     If you leave the laptop usually plugged in, then optimized batter health is the better option. Cheers,

Then I had restarted WiFi router and network showed Up, but as soon Yoga connected, same again no network. I googled for solution and I did uninstall EMC and Lenovo Utility but that did not resolved the problem. Then I had tried to uninstall all drivers and than download and install them again but still the problem is there. Wherever Yoga connects WiFi dies.

I've recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 13IKB, considering the battery as one of its biggest pros due to some reviews and adds I read in the Internet. Unfortunately, even after a 100% charge, I can't get no longer than 4h30 / 5 h of battery lifetime prediction / battery lifetime.  I have already decreased brightness, I almost have no apps running in background, but unfortunately it doesn't gets better. The situation is even worse considering that I'm not doing anything but surfing online, texting in word or taking a look at some pictures in Windows Gallery. Have anyone experienced the same problem? Can someone please help me? Is that true that we can get 10h30 (or a bit less, I wouldn't care) like it was advertised or that was just a commercial bait? Thanks in advance!

I had tried to update my graphic cards driver to the newest and had recently performed a fresh start via Windows Defended Security Center, but it didn?t help. Do you guys had experience the same problem or do you know what could be a possible cause? I also have to partions on my SSD; a C drive, where Windows 10 and all my programs are and a D drive, where it seems that there?s drivers from Lenovo. Can I combine them to one my drive or should I just leave it as it is? And if I can, them how? Then I?m also curious to figure out, how my laptop overall health is, since I?m a student, so I want it to perform as best as possible. Is there a way to figure out a laptops overall health and how the condition of my battery is?  I hope that you guys can answer my questions or at least notify me of any other topics, which have the answers to my problems .

I'm experiencing a very annoying blinking/flickering of the built-in 4K display.Have a look at this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vdd4UICu_T4On the movie it isn't nearly as bad as in reality. The flickering is only visible with a blue, dark gray or purple color background. White, red or black is fine. The issue appears to be independent of the OS - the same can be observed in Linux or even in the BIOS.It all started after I attached a second screen (FullHD 24 inch using Thunderbold->HDMI adapter) in Windows 10 (latest Intel display drivers as of January 26, 2018).Just after connecting the external display the laptop screen went gibberish but the external display worked fine. After disconnecting the screen and restarting the computer the blinking started. It looks like a problem with the refresh rate. The laptop display behaves like an old CRT display with a low refresh rate I found this procedure https://support.lenovo.com/pl/en/solutions/ht500364 in another thread and followed it but unfortunately it didn't help.  The computer is almost brand new (bought in December, top version i7-8550U, 16GB RAM, 1TB NVMe, 4K UHD display). Any help appreciated.

Ok, so I bought my Yoga 910 (4k/i7/16gb/512ssd) just a few days ago and, besides the fan noise (which I am currently working on) as well as recently discovering the issue I am about to discuss, I absolutely LOVE this machine! It is a workhorse and the build quality is amazing. That's saying a lot coming from a previous Mac user... Anyway, I was looking around today while trying to get the fan issue resolved and I noticed that the Full Charge Capacity (FCC) of the battery is only 75410mwh, while the actual Designed Capacity is meant to be 78000mwh. It is about a 4% performance decrease basically right out of the box, is that normal? I only ask because I originally bought the FHD/i7/8gb/256ssd version, before exchanging it for the upgraded unit due to liking it so much, and noticed that the FCC on the original one was actually 80102mwh, quite a bit higher than the designed capacity. Not sure if there is a setting preventing the PC to charge to the full amount or what? Maybe I just got a battery with lower ratings? Any help would be MUCH apppreciated!

Okay I have a strange problem I have a HP EliteBook 8460p Core i5-2520M 2.5GHz 6GB AMD HD 6470M laptop. when I first set it up after installing the video drivers the screen went black. I pulled out the power cord and the screen came back on because of power options having a lower value set for screen brightness. I used the power menu to lower the brightness one notch when my computer is plugged in.

The problem my screen isn't has bright as it could be and I can't figure out how to get the highest brightness setting to work. And yes the other brightness settings work so it's not that problem with auto brightness or whatever it's called and I have it turned off anyway.

thanks

A:Highest brightness setting turns screen black.

Sounds like a bad inverter to me. Good news is, even if the unit is out of warranty, it's probably a $20 part. Bad news is, you almost always have to rip a laptop 1/2-3/4 apart before you can even get to it. The majority of the time the inverter is located in the bottom part of the display bezel where the company logo is.

If the unit is still under warranty, this is a perfectly valid claim, so get on the phone with HP and make them fix it.

Use a micro HDMI port to connect to an external monitor and reboot.6. Disconnet SSD both or one at a time and then reboot.7.

Hello guys! First of all, english is not my native language, so I hope I won't make too many mistakes. As stated in the title, I own the Lenovo Yoga 500 - 14IBD. Whenever I move the display inwards it gets black for a little while (maybe 1 - 2 seconds) and then gets back to normal. I don't have this problem when I move the display outwards. I guess I has something to do with the switiching between tablet and normal mode? Does somebody know how I can turn this off? My guess is that some sensor is broken. I wouldn't mind uninstalling some drivers if it helps (I mean I can switch manually between tablet and normal mode in the settings). Thanks in advance for any help!

No Ethernet Adapter.Open the Device Manager, there are 'Qualcom Wireless', Bluetooth Device + 8 different WAN Miniports.I downloaded & installed Intel WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 920-13IKB, Yoga 920-13IKB  'fqy801af', no change.I switched the ethernet connection from the C Hub to another USB Hub with Ethernet port, no change.Swapped cables, swapped LAN ports, no change. Same cables and ports work fine with another laptop (6 years old).Hope that someone would give a helping hand. I've been struggling with it all day long and am giving up.Help, please. P.S. Got a couple days more to be able to return, with regret of course. Hope this can be fixed.

Has anyone experienced flickering on their HDR screen when the brightness is set to low levels?  I've been having this issue since day 1, before and after BIOS upgrades that were recently released.  It happens no matter which program is open - though it seems more prominent when the computer is being used vs. sitting idle.  I've checked and have all of the latest Lenovo updates as well as Windows updates.  I tried to take a video of the issue (attached) which might be hard to see - but it's very prominent when you're actually using the computer in a dark environment.  Anyone have ideas of what might be wrong - could this simply be a defective device?

Hi all, my screen brightness on my YOGA-15ISK is stuck, the Fn F11 & F12 buttons aren't working to fix it and resetting the Generic PnP monitor in the Device Manager as suggested elsewhere in the forum for another model doesn't work to fix the buttons, only resetting the birghtness all the way. Help please? Thank you!
