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.)

Hi there. The wifi kicks in an out every 15-30 minutes, and it's driving me insane. 80K90011US Preinstalled Windows 10 (When I do auto-detect on Lenovo's site it only offeres me windows 7 and 8 as options. Why is the computer installed to 10?) If you need any other numbers to assist, please let me know. I saw some posts indicated a BIOS update, but would appreciate the confirmation which one I should be using, if in fact that's the issue.  Really just bought a few months ago, so hoping this isn't a long-term issue. Thanks.

Hi guys,I have a laptop which is a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 model running on Window 10 Pro OS. It is a Core i3-3110M CPU @2.40GHz 8GB RAM 64-bit OS. My issue is :WLAN / WiFi keeps going ON and OFF every now and then. The WiFi once connected keeps connecting and disconnecting every minute and it sometimes take forever to reconnect back. I will need to right-click on the WiFi Symbol at the bottom right and click on 'Troubleshoot problems' to recover from this issue. Once recovered, it disconnects again. Some Observations :The issue could be because of the conflict between the Bluetooth drivers and the WiFi drivers. If Bluetooth is disabled then the WiFi works correctly. There will be no problems regarding the WiFi getting disconnected. These are the following details of the hardwares and their respective driver versions. Network : Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless -N 2230Driver Version : 15.18.0.1Driver Date : 30-04-2015  Bluetooth : Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R)Driver Version : 18.1.1525.1445Driver Date : 18-06-2015 I have no idea why these two are causing this issue, but I really need to fix this. And it has been atleast a year since I bought this laptop and it has been showing this problem since 4 - 5 months back. Please let me know if there is a work around for this. If not atleast I hope the above information might help fixing the issue. If there is any additional information that is needed from me, please leave a m... Read more

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price." I inquired about the status of the original repairs, they told me the claim was on hold, pending my review and... Read more

Using Windows 10 version 1511 and all updates.  Used the Lenovo System Update and everything has been updated.  I wanted to turn on the built-in camera on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530, the F5 key, and it came up with a message saying, "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings Program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work. Even the Lenovo System Update program has it and I also downloaded it.  I restarted the laptop again and it still doesn't work. I then went to install the Lenovo Settings App on the Windows store and it doesn't look like the right one plus it still didn't work. My other problem is with the Lenovo Companion App from the Windows Store.  It worked before but now it ask to "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation."  I have installed the Lenovo System Interface Driver multiple times and it still popped up that message.  Yes, I have restarted the laptop and Companion.   Is there a reason why these issues are happening and how to fix it?  Thank you in advance.

Hello! I have a "HP HP ENVY x360 - 15-u101ns (ENERGY STAR)" that was bought some time ago but I'm only using it now (so warranty is over). I'm having a lot of trouble with the wireless connection. It keeps dropping very very frequently in many different networks (some more than others). With other notebooks/tablets/mobiles that I usually use with these same networks I never have any problems (they literally work perfectly). I've tried everything I found on the internet. I went to the driver manager and chose the option so that the wireless adapter could not be turned off to save energy. I tried to update the wireless adapter driver through the windows update. Then through the HP Support Assistant. I tried resetting to the original driver. I tried downloading the driver from HP website and installing it manually. I went to all the http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02543015 steps and they were useless. Almost always when internet goes down I can run the troubleshooter (both of windows and HP Support Assistant) and it will restart the wireless adapter and the wifi connection will come back (magically). To give a little background, the notebook has been reset to the default (HDs formatted, original windows 8.1 re-installed and then, without any other installation or use, updated to windows 10). No anti-virus is installed (only windows defender). Can anyone give me any further idea on what may be causing this problem, or if this is simply a chronic HP/Intel... Read more

Some time ago, when you could get Windows 10 upgrade for free, my wife's laptop started having poor downloads on wifi. Where I used to get something close to 100Mb, download tests show it can range anywhere froma typical 4Mb to, rarely,  20Mb. Uploads have always been fine at 4Mb. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the wifi driver, done every possible change to every possible setting from every possible solution found by Googling but nothing changes. I've gone through long lists of registry settings, cleaning the drive, turning off services and so on. I can't help but think there is one small setting somewhere from some third-party causing this; specifically due to our HP printer but, even then, I can't find what it could be. The  unit is less than two years old and this has always been a source of frustration.

Hi there I didn't used to have any issues with my home wifi till recently I would be able to connect at 300Mbps but now it will only work at 54Mbps. I have tried a few router settings to figure out the issue and the only way I can get it to connect at the higher speed is to enable under QOS Enable WMM (Wi-Fi multimedia) settings then only will it connect at the higher speed. Anyone have any ideas why? this is really frustrating me as I didn't used to have this enabled to connect at a higher speed. Thanks

My Lenovo Edge 2 appears to have done a Windows 10 update yesterday and now has issues with the wireless adapter.   I was working fine the day before and yesterday morning. I started the laptop up in the evening yesterday and was greeted with full-screen messages indicating that Microsoft was setting things up for me and all my documents would be available in their proper locations.   I'm used to these screens from upgrading other computers from windows 8 to windows 10, however, this Edge 2 came with Windows 10. When I was finally logged in, my laptop had no internet connection from the wifi adapter.  In fact, the device manager shows an error with the Intel wireless adapater.   I downloaded the drivers from Intel and installed them ("Repair" in this case) and things seemed to work for a short time (~1-2 minutes).  Then the wifi disconnected and the adapter dissapeared in the networking section of device manager with an unknown device listed.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers a couple of times, sometimes with the 1-2 minutes of wireless connectivity, othertimes with no improvement. I do have other wireless laptops connected to the wireless router during all of this, so I'm sure it is a laptop issue. Does anyone have any ideas on what to try next to get my wireless working again? Thanks Edit:  My laptop is a Lenovo Edge 2-1580 80QF

A:Edge 2 wifi issues after Dec 10 Windows 10 update

I would probably try using System Restore to restore the restore point that should have been made automatically during the Windows Update that started the problem.  (See link below) If that resolves the problem, look for, and install, any updated WiFi Adapter driver from Lenovo (preferred) or Intel before allowing Windows to update again to make sure it works.      I would also run checkdisk on the system before updating again too. (see below) If you cannot restore from a restore point, locate the WiFi Adapter in device manager and delete it;  and when prompted, delete the existing driver files and reboot.    When prompted for drivers when Windows detects the WiFi adapter, point to the latest driver you downloaded from Lenovo. Best of Luck. Recovery options in Windows 10http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/windows-10-recovery-options  How to run CheckDiskRight Click on Start MenuSelect Administrator Command PromptType Chkdsk /FType Y to check on next restart when prompted  C:\WINDOWS\system32>chkdsk /fThe type of the file system is NTFS.Cannot lock current drive.Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by anotherprocess.

When I turned my Edge 15 (80H1) off the other day, it was working fine.  I went to turn it back on the next day, and all I got was the power light blinking slowly (approx. 1 second intervals).  When it is plugged in the light that usually indicates it's plugged in isn't on any more.  I can't get th power light to stop blinking when it's not plugged in.  The only way to get it to stop blinking is if I plug it in (still blinking) and then remove the power cord (then it stops), but of course won't power up.  Any advice would be appreciated.

I have a Lenovo edge 2 with windows 10. The problem: Randomly my screen goes black with the LED light still on. Sound goes off as well and mouse does not appear. Seems like its crashing. Happens about 2-3 times in a span of 4-5 hours. When I check my system event log, around the time of the crash I have 1 error and 1 warning  1 second apart as follows: ERROR: A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the FontCache3.0.0.0 service to connect. WARNING: The speed of processor 3 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report. I also get a "could not reconnect to all network drivers" message at start-up which may or may not be related. Could this be malware??

I have a very strange issue with my processor underclocking.The factory specs for this laptop state my processor is the intel i7 500U @ 2.4GHz. Which it does fine and has perfect performance. Unless my laptop is under 20 percent AND plugged in (yes, plugged in, not on battery). I fmy laptop gets low on charge and drops below 20 percent I can hardly use it at the same time it is charging because it underclocks my cpu to a max clock of .5GHz rendering my laptop extremely sluggish even when doing simple operations. Once it has charged to 20 percent or above I have to disconnect the charger and then the cpu will throttle back up and then I can reconnect the charger without it underclocking until next time it has dropped below 20 percent and I plug it in. Please tell me if you have a suggested fix or if this may be a hardware problem (which seems a little unlikely). For the record I have played around with every option in the advanced power settings and have it on high performance mode and everything but nothing fixes it. Thanks in advance, Alex

I am presently researching to purchase a laptop for my wife at Christmas who is a teacher thus she will need to access the internet, do Office work, grading, emails, research, etc., but no gaming at all.

Will be running 7 64 OS, with 4 gigs of RAM, and hopefully a 7200 rpm hd. Leaning towards the i5 processor.

The Thinkpad Edge is part of Lenovo's excellent T Series but somewhat less expensive. Looking at current configurations it seems it will deliver what I am looking for but I know nothing of the quality build.

Would love to hear back from people who have used this series and/or from ITs who repair laptops for their insights.

But some of the option (like hybrid mode) were missing in it. So i read some solutions from lenovo forums and people were saying to reinstall the vantage edge. So I uninstalled it , But now i am having trouble while installing it again. I am downloading the setup from the link https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/in/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/legion-series/legion-y540-15irh-pg0.... Now here comes the problem. When i install the setup it installs it in "C:\Drivers\Lenovo_Vantage_Gaming_Feature_Driver". After that when I lauch it, it displays the message "Completing the Lenovo Vantage Gaming Feature Driver Setup Wizard". After this when I press Ok nothing happens. This is really annoying as there is no other option to download it.
