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.)

I recently bought an IP 520 i7 7 gen 15.6" machine. It comes with a type c port. I want to know if I can plug in a type c to vga adapter and use another monitor on my laptop. I bought an adapter from Amazon and I tried plugging it into the c socket but that does not work. However, when I tried the same adapter on my sister's Mac , it works just fine. Now my question is, Is the c port just for charging and does not have I/o pins , or my USB c is damaged ?

The on page 7 of the user's guide that came with my new laptop it says that my Ideapad 320-15ABR, "supports USB 3.1 (Gen1, Output 5V ds, 0.9A DC)".  I purchased a SanDisk Ultra Type-C 3.1 flash drive.  However, when I tested the drive it did not perform any better than a Type-A 3.0.  The attached photo shows the results of benchmark tests on both drives.ATTO Disk Benchmark results I also did some crude tests by moving large files to both drives and clocking the time it took to transfer the file.  Transfer time to and from both drives was about equal. I called Lenovo Technial Support and spoke with John.  I gave him this information and, after a minute or so, he told me that my laptop did not have USB 3.1 and that the documentation was wrong. I find this hard to believe.  So my question is does the Lenovo Ideapad 320-15ABR support USB 3.1? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hello, I recently ordered an Ideapad 720s (13-inch). Lenovo web site mentions "*Connecting to a display requires a USB-C to HDMI or DisplayPort cable, depending on display interface." I was wondering I should buy a USB-HDMI cable or an adapter to connect this laptop to an external display. Does anyone know whether the Ideapad 720s (13-inch) model supports native HDMI through a USB port, namely the HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C? (as specified in https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/HDMIAltModeUSBTypeC.aspx) Regards,Franky

Is there going to be a future release for the Ideapad 520s in the USA? If not, that would be quite an inconvience, since the 300 Series have an 8GB RAM Max limitation and inferior quality and the 700 Series are limited to M.2 SSD's. The only other current alternative is the Flex 5 (or Yoga 520).

I don't know if my barely 1 week old laptop is defect or if these Harman speakers are of exceptionally bad quality, but I simply cannot have the speakers on for a moment since there's constantly a static background sound coming from them. The only way to fix this seems to be to turn them off, but sometimes even turning off the speakers gives me this static sound. Should I bring in my laptop for repairs? The sound quality is also very poor. I've had a cheaper ASUS and HP in the past and their speakers were MUCH better quality, so I didn't think a more expensive laptop would give me this issue...

Just replaced my Yoga 2 13" (which was getting flakey) with a new IdeaPad 520S. It has a 256GB SSD in it, but I've read online that there's an M.2 (?) slot inside as well. I'd rather not open it up on day one to check, but is that the case, and if so, will ANY M.2 SSD fit and work as a second drive?

Hi, I just bought a Lenovo IdeaPad 520s with FreeDos and wanted to install Win 10 Pro.I created a bootable USB with the following config: GPT partition scheme for UEFI , NTFS file system (it did not allowed fat32 because the file was larger than 4gb)  and cluster size 4096 bytes.When I try to boot from the usb it says "EFI USB device has been blocked by the current security policy" Can you tell me how can I install Win 10 and the steps and configurations needed?Thanks!

A:How can I install Windows 10 on Ideapad 520s?

It seems, that some sort of security is enabled in BIOS (Secure Boot?). Please referer to User Manual, page 7. Turn off your laptop and press Novo Button. Your laptop will turn on and Novo Menu will be displayed. Please go to Bios Setup and look for security settings. BTW. You can create an installation media using Windows Media Creation Tool.

I bout a Lenovo ideapad  520S-14IKB (Type 80X2) Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80X2 - Model 80X2007SRI and I upgraded it with 8 Gb RAM and a Kingston SSD (240Gb). The problem that I had before upgrading and after is that the CPU is being used at 100% or close when I open webpages (regular pages like Facebook, but not evrery page, some simple pages are loading without stressing the CPU). If I share my screen on Skype (which I usually do pretty often), things get even worse, the computer is slow. On my old laptop I don't remember to have had the same problems.

Hi! I'm having an issue with my new laptop and I really hope someone can help me with possible solutions or at least explanations. Thank you in advance for reading about my problem  In short, I've recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad 520S laptop, with the following specs: Intel® Core? i7-7500U 2.70 GHz, Kaby Lake, 14", Full HD, IPS, 8GB, 256GB SSD, nVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB I was looking for a good compromise between mobility and performance (with a little bit of gaming capacity thrown in), and this is the best I could find within my budget. And, while overall the laptop works as well as I'd imagined, I'm having a really frustrating problem on the gaming front.Specifically, while playing a rather old game (Mass Effect 1, for what it's worth), the laptop gets hot (to very hot) exactly in the much needed WASD keyboard area, thus rendering the game nearly unplayable.Now, I fully understand that this is nowhere near a gaming laptop, but we're talking about a 10+ year old game! Not only that, but I've played the same game before, on a significantly lower configuration, with nearly no issues at all. Actually, I've played many games, on laptops with weaker processors and integrated graphics, and I haven't experienced this much heat.So... has anyone encountered this issue with a similar laptop? And, if so, can anything be done about it? I find it really frustrating that I can't even play such an old game in decent conditions, not to mention disappointing...Thank ... Read more

Hi, I am wondering if the recently upgraded Ideapad 520s-14IKBR (Intel core i5-8250u, 8GB DDR4, 128gb m.2 ssd, intel UHD graphics 620) has thunderbolt on the USB-C port?

I hope they improved this new version with a thunderbolt connection. I also want to upgrade the native m.2 SSD for a Samsung 960 EVO so I can enable hardware encryption on it.Does anybody know which SSD is used in this model and does it already support SSD hardware encryption (TCG Opal) like the samsung does?Does this motherboard support a PCIe 3.0x4 NVMe SSD like the Samsung 960 EVO? Here are some specs: https://us.hardware.info/product/413163/lenovo-ideapad-520s-14ikbr-81bl005ymh/specifications I can't find any further info (or user manual) on this model and I can't even find the model on the Lenovo website except for the older models like 520s-IKB.  Hope someone can help me out. Thank you!

These are all the things that i tried.
1.Login to my router and forward ports and enable UPnP.
