Lenovo Aura not working after update

Q: Lenovo Aura not working after update

Hi, I have a Horizon 27 and recently updated it to Windows 8.1. After that, Lenovo Aura does not seem working. It does not give an error but just terminates after the splash screen. To try re-install it, I dont see an option to download it from anywhere (I have gone through the thread in which someone ordered the original application CDs from customer service). My one year warrantly has finsihed. Can I still ask the support to devlier me CDs. Any help regarding this would be appreciated. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Aura not working after update

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 have a Horizon 2e.  A few weeks ago, a message came up, telling me that there was an update for Aura, and I could either update or have it ask later.  No option for it to not update and not ask later!I have successfully run the update 3 times, but everyday it asks again.  It is annoying.How can I get this to stop?

A:Aura won't stop asking to update

Hi Jubal_Droad,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
There is a Program file under Lenovo Folder Program Files that is called
Alpha Upgrade Service
This app checks for an update and downloads and install
The app seems to be downloading the same version and cannot recognize that you already have the one it's trying to download causing it to download again.
 
One thing is that the Lenovo Alpha upgrade service is set to Run everytime you log in to the computer causing it to update everytime.
 
When you run the Task Scheduler you'll find the Alpha Upgrade Service configured as such. you can disable it there.
 
Still Don't know why the update won't give a notification that you have the latest or give a no available update message.
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

First of all I want to say that I am extremely disappointed with the experience I had with my Lenovo. After I bought it I found out that Lenovo, for some reason, disabled the Turbo Boost option of the CPU. I tried to fix it by entering the BIOS but the options there were limited, so I decided to update the BIOS. I downloaded the BIOS update for 64-bit windows(i am running windows 8 which is compatible with the said update utillity). I ran the .exe and followed all the instructions (did not shut-down restart or anything my computer). After installing it automatically restarted and a Lenovo logo prompted on the screen followed by ">>Start PXE over IPv6, Press [ESC] to EXIT..." after that "EFI Network 0 for IPv6(numbers and letters) boot failed". Then ">>Start PXE over IPv4" which failed and a blue box poped saying "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery Media and Hit any ket then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". Pressed ok and got me to Boot Manager screen. Boot option Menu had only EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and EFI Network 0 for IPv4". What should I do?Note that I tried to start up both with and without the ethernet cable in.

Hello everyone, Since monday I have some problems with fingerprint authentication via Windows Hello. It seems to have stopped working for some reasons I don't know. At the beginning, I thought it was a hardware issue but it doesn't seems to be. I'll explain why. Problem description:  When I try to authenticate via fingerprint, OS redirects me to PIN authentication automatically.So I removed my saved fingerprint and tried to set the same fingerprint (and others). But now I can't add a new fingerprint, Windows Hello seems to be inert. My fingerprint device doesn't work.When I removed my PIN and retried to set a fingerprint, my fingerprint device works and detects my finger. Then I've added a new PIN to enable Windows Hello. But neither my PIN nor my fingerprint was saved.  Attempts to fix the problem: - I tried to update driver, I have the last one (5.1.324.26). I tried to uninstall it then reboot, nothing happens;- Via administrative templates, try to enable it on Windows Components, nothing happens;- Reset fingerprint settings into BIOS/ Security then F10, nothing happens;- Tried to recover Windows with keeping files, nothing happens. I've made some snapshots of what I'm explaining : Click on Set up fingerprint. Set with PIN already registered. I just have a cancel button and nothing else.Removed PIN before. Fingerprint device worksAdd New PINBut nothing was saved... I'm totally confused. I think it's a software prob... Read more

Hello, I just purchased manufacturer refurbished A740 and it came with just Windows 10 Home installed and none of the other software Lenovo would usually ship with the machine. It is kind of good that I didn't get all the software installed, as most likely I would remove most of it but I wanted Aura and those educational or games apps to be there so my kids can use them.I downloaded from Lenovo website and installed Aura (for Yoga 900)  and it seems to be working but now there are several things I need help with. 1. where can I download those educational and game apps which were being advertised by Lenovo to come installed with a new computer (air hockey, etc.) 2. When I install an app using App Explorer (which technically uses Microsoft Store), the app doesn't get categoriezed into Educational or Games app section in Aura. The app appears in App section of Aura but not under other categories. So the question is what should I do to get something show under Education or Games section of Aura? 3. Does the feature to open Aura automatically when A740 is layed flat works or that is just for Yoga/Horizon series? I have that options checked in Aura Settings, but Aura doesn't start automatically if I position the screen flat. Any suggestions and assistance will be highly appreciated!

A:Horizon 2 and the Aura app

hi bobjryan,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try these steps:
1. Enable NFC on the Samsung Note 4 and run the AuraU app .
2. Put the Horizon 2 in table mode to launch the Aura 2.0 app.
   - Link to picture
 
3. Lay the samsung Note 4 on top of the Horizon 2 (this syncs the phone to the Horizon 2). When finished, you should see the Dial menu from the Aura Interface.

After a couple of months of not playing Aura-The Fate of Ages I went back to finish the second age. Got the last puzzles solved and then went to save before starting the third age. The game will not save now. The game used to have a window that would pop up and ask "Are you sure you want to save?". That window does not appear now and the game cannot be saved. Did not try "ctrl-save" as I figured that would be useless until I got this glitch ironed out and the instruction book says nothing about "ctrl-save" being implemented. Any suggestions?
 

A:Aura not Saving

I'm not familiar with that game, but browse to the directory where it's installed and see if you can find a save file. Right-click it and see if it's set to "read only". Also check the game's official website and forums. The people there will be much more familiar with the game.

Well, there's nothing fancy in my setup, but it does the job well. I know I'm lacking on the back up side of things, but I don't like system images (if I mess up, I prefer starting from scratch rather than doing a restore, and it never happened other than during my upgrade to Windows 10) and I don't have a lot of "crucial" files. All of them are saved on Google Drive and Dropbox, so even if my drives were to fail physically, I wouldn't lose anything.

You might consider adding On-Demand Scanner(s) like Zemana Anti-Malware, Crystal Security, etc. Thanks for sharing.

Hello, I have a new T530 with Windows 8 OS. I am having trouble using the integrated camera. It functions neither in the Windows camera app nor in Skype. In both cases I get a picture with a gray background and a camera with a line through it. In Device manager, the camera does appear, is enabled, and the drivers are up to date.After looking through other threads, I tried checking whether the camera was plugged in and indeed it was. When using Skype and I set the camera to on (Skype did detect the camera), I still got the gray no camera image, but the green light on the camera itself turned on.I also tried using Fn+F6 to check settings. Lenovo settings opens, but the when I click the camera settings Icon, the screen loads a blank page that says "Camera" in the top right and has a back button (left pointing arrow) in the top left hand corner. The back button does not seem to work and I must change the window to something else in order to exit/close settings.I tried manually installing both camera drivers and "power management" ("energy management"?) drivers. Neither of this solved either of these issues.Please help me to resolve this problem. Thank you.

Hi, euterpenc
 
I would make sure that the BIOS is up to date in the system. The current BIOS for your system is 2.07 and can be found here. Also, I would ensure that the chipset drivers are up to date, and those can be found here.
 
Hope it helps, and let me know how it goes

I'm looking at getting a Horizon 2 only to use the Aura interface to show pictures and videos at tradeshows.My choices are $1100 for the Horizon 2 and don't upgrade to Windows 10 which is fine for this purpose, or $1500 for the Yoga Home 900. Since Aura is my main concern I want to know if there have been continual and/or substantial updates for Aura on Windows 8.1 or have they made the Yoga Home's Aura available for the Horizon 2 yet? I am just concerned about getting the old version and not getting any support or updates for it. Does anyone have comments to the differences between the two Auras (assuming Horizon 2 can't be upgraded)?

Just bought Aura--Fate of the Ages, a PC adventure game, for my daughter. While the introductory movies play fine, the game freezes every time when attempting to, for example, climb the stairs in the opening mission. Every time I've attempted to troubleshoot, I would attempt to go up the stairs. This activity requires two mouse clicks to complete, and I sometimes freeze during the first half of the climb but always by the second half.

System: AMD Athlon XP 1600+, 512 MB RAM, 40GB drive (25 GB free), Audigy sound card, Geforce 5200 video card, VIA KT266 DDR motherboard, WinXP. I have the latest Audigy and Nvidia drivers, and the new patch from Adventure Games which caused the game to reinstall (a very long process) and labelled the version 1.2.

I have tried lowering the hardware acceleration for the sound card, run Spy Sweeper, cleaning up her drive by removing old programs, etc., defragging, regular scan disking. I have sent an unanswered email to the tech support address. I have installed the game on my PIV system, also using an Audigy card but using a Radeon 9700 Pro, and it runs with no problems.

As a possibly related aside, my daughter also has problems playing back DVDs (using PowerDVD 5, bought and paid for),with intermittent lockups the norm there too.

Any advice? TIA.

Problem: bought a new gpu, cpu, and motherboard and i hooked it all up and the cpu indicator came on meaning there is a cpu issue but the pc started the boot sequence and the cpu got hot despite the water cooler no signal on screen cant enter the bios. it wont accept my other cpu (fx 6300) either and both are am3+ sockets. also tried using two other coolers (cleaning and installing new thermal paste each time.)

Installation; i installed the motherboard im missing some screws for the case but nothing touching anywhere it shouldnt be. installed the cpu put the cooler on then the ramm and i hooked up the usb ports and the power button cords plugged the motherboard power connectors in then installed the gpu and its power then the x2 sata cables tried to start in safe mode system started w/ fans running led warning lights cycled then it stopped on red meaning cpu error system then shut off after a minute then it shut off slightly faster after i tried to start it again i tried cycling the ramm slots they are in the correct slots i followed the motherboard installation book

Issue i previously fixed: When i first hooked everything up the power button didnt work so i re did all my connections and the motherboard power connectors and it fixed that issue.

Estimates:
Could i have maybe damaged the parts and now it doesnt recognize cpu's
Could i have damaged the cpu and now it overheats?

You need to be more precise in posting your specs; post the exact parts. There are a LOT of 500W pw supplies; some good quality and some junk.
Next have you checked your temps and voltages? If not, do so. The info is available in the bios. Read your motherboard manual for exact instructions in accessing temps and voltages. Post the following; cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values.

Next have you tested the ram and hard drive? Again if you have not, do so. Test the ram with memtest; test the hard drive with the drive mfg's diagnostic. Both of these can run from bootable media so no need for an operating system to be installed.
Note to check the hard disk, you are going to need the dos or boot version of the diagnostic; not the windows version.

It makes no sense to keep trying to install the operating system until you make sure the hardware is working correctly.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi, I am trying to update my X230 with latest drivers. Sadly I have encountered an issue which you can see on the attached image. Is that a reason for concern or just a bug? Is there a way to fix it?

bought this recently, and must say that i am pretty pissed. i did installation of windows 7 on it and it worked fine for some 10 days till it got BSOD cause of bad system info and couldnt even load into windows. only solution was to reinstall. i did fresh install and i got BSOD with fresh install after only few days. checked internet for solution and saw that you could select windows 7 os in bios for optimized settings that should prevent BSOD. but no option for windows 7 in bios. only for win 8 and other OS. i thought ok, i will just download latest bios and flash it. but what happened when i downloaded bios (a2cn38ww) from support page?i got this message "your machine does not match with this bios". so does anyone know where i can actually  download correct bios, or how to contact lenovo support so they can tell me where to download bios?

My mic became suddenly not working 2 days ago. I have tried re-installing the driver (Conexant) and make sure my mic isn't muted, but still, it does not work. I have also checked the status of the mic in device manager, but it says the device is working properly and the latest driver had been installed. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Or maybe my mic was busted physically? Specs:OS: Windows 10 (updated on December 2015)CPU: Intel Core i7 4510UGPU: Nvidia 840M 4GBRAM: 12GBStorage: 1TB Thanks for the help!

Hi everyone! I'm having next problem. I recently updated my Lenovo Z50-75 to Windows 10 Pro x64 and since the DVD is not working, it does'nt even appear in the units of This PC. When I go to the device manager it is listed like a recognized device but with no driver. I tried updating from the web but it does'nt find anything. The device is a PLDS DVD-RW DA8A5SH.
Can anyone please help me with this?? Many thanks.

Hi,I own a Lenovo G50-70. It used to be a windows 8.1, but I upgraded it to Windows 10. The mic did not work, but after upgrding to windows 10, it began working again. But later, it stopped working again. So I messed around in the settings, where I found a setting menu that was blue. Apparently, the mic was not full volume. However, without going int the settings again, it stopped working. Now, I can no longer find that blue setting menu. It only registers sound when I touch (physically) the mic. Aside from that, it cannot hear me.  Please Help?

Hello,

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

A:Internet not working, windows update, ping, DNS, etc. working fine

I decided to run hijack this and found two BHO's. It's funny that on my new install that I used a handful of times, I have adware, but on this install that's been going for years, I have nothing. Oh well. So I had "Crossrider" and "Coupon Companion". I removed all traces of both, yet still no go. It looks like this managed to install itself on 12/2... which had to be damn close to the date that I bought the SSD, however, I had internet activity as recent as 12/26. Here's the log of what Coupon Companion did:
