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.)

Hello there. I have a few questions regarding the recent release of BIOS update with version number CDCN37WW. Currently my BIOS is on version CDCN35WW. I was about to install it yesterday but did not because of several reasons. I read the instruction saying that I should put the BIOS settings at its default settings before installing the CDCN37WW update and there lies my problem. I bought the 15ISK version with 1TB HDD. A month ago I bought a 128GB SSD and did a clean install of Windows 10 on my new SSD. After booting into Windows 10 on my SSD in Legacy Mode, I format the partition in the 1TB HDD which houses my default installation of Windows 10 (the pre-installed Windows 10 by Lenovo). I did not completely wipe the HDD altogether and thus I still have the partitions created by Lenovo. The main issue that is stopping me from installing the update is my BIOS settiings. In BIOS boot submenu, I have it set to Legacy and then Legacy First so that it detects my SSD. UEFI does not detect my SSD. Default settings sets UEFI instead of Legacy. In conclusion, I cannot install the BIOS update even if I wanted to because I won't be able to boot into Windows 10 on my SSD once I change BIOS settings to default because UEFI (default settings is set to UEFI) does not detect my SSD. My questions are: -1. Does anyone have any solution or workaround to this problem ?2. Is it really compulsory to set the BIOS settings back default ? Or is it just a "... Read more

Hi all,  I'm sorry if I am beating a dead horse with this post. Today I purchased an Intel SSDPEKKW512G7X1 M.2-2280 512 GB SSD and installed it. For the past few hours I have been having trouble getting the BIOS to recognize it as a bootable drive so I can install Windows 10 onto it. Does anyone have any suggestions. Have turned off secure boot and turned on legacy support. Did check to see if it is DOA and it isnt. Thanks!

Hello all, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700-15ISK and as I downloaded the drivers, I stumbled upon the BIOS update. There are 2 bios updates one marked as CDCN35WW and another marked as CDCN52WW having the same release date. My laptop currently has a BIOS version of CDCN27WW, 12/11/2015.So my question is which of these 2 BIOS updates do I download and apply? Do I first apply CDCN35WW and then CDCN52WW or do I apply only CDCN52WW (maybe it contains CDCN35WW)?Also what steps do I need to follow to properly flash the BIOS with minimum risk? My current BIOS settings are UEFI with an SSD as the boot disk with all the other settings not touched. Thanks,Penthon

Hello everyone.Recently bought a y700, my first laptop, and i was very pleased with it untill i found out about the 67 degrees throttle on the GPU, which is incredibly annoying. I was wondering if any of you knew if the bios updates they released fixed that problem. And does updating the bios voids warranty?Also, another thing i'd like to ask bout is : When installing something, games for example, the hdd is used 99% making the laptop really slow. How normal is this? I have the version with a 1 TB 5400 HDD, no SSD.Might seem like noob questions. That's because I am.

Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW or a newer version of the BIOS will be made available". Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW version of the BIOS will be made available again????????So I downgraded my BIOS CDCN35WW to BIOS CDCN30WW, and after that I installed again BIOS CDCN35WW - everything went well, but now my BIOS shows it is CDCN30WW version??? I would be very grateful for any help, thanks in advance.

Hi, I've been experiencing this throttling issue for the past month now ( I've had this laptop since January). The fps drop from 170 to 60 for a couple of seconds and go back up to the initial value. I've had this issue a couple of times before but it would fix itself after restart (usually had it when I wake the laptop from sleep and immediately load CS:GO).  Now, I notice that this happens everytime I start playing and the temp goes above 69 degrees - I used to play with 170-200fps before with GPU temps surpassing 80 degrees with no fps drops at all.  This is really frustrating, especially when knowing that my brother has no FPS drops using my 5 year old Lenovo Y570 with  geforce GT 555m...Is there any way to fix this? I mean the gaming experience, as stated above was fine until a week ago, when I started getting these FPS drops, so that means that this issue can actually be fixed. Specs are Intel Core i7-6700HQGTX960M 4GB12 GB DDR4256GB SSD  ( CS:GO is on the SSD if that matters)I use Speedfan to check the temps. CS:GO is using the nvidia gpu, and the gpu is se to performance, power saving is disabled i am using balanced performance and set all advanced settings to maximum performance.

Hello, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700-15ISK with i5 6300HQ, Geforce GTX 960, 1 TB WD HDD (No SSD). I really like this laptop. But there are some serious issues that I don't know how to fix. First of all, I have installed Windows 10 Home edition. I disabled all the windows 10 problems, that were eating my memory, hdd. But I still find my computer quite slow when working... I expected it to be a beast. Actually it takes about 90 seconds to boot Windows 10. It's not normal... I saw worse laptops boot much faster... And the programs: When I double click My computer it takes like 3-4 seconds to open it. The second time I double click it it's much faster. Right click also lags. Opening chrome takes like 5 to 10 seconds. And when I install programs, install from ISO files, copy files I can't do anything else. The laptop lags a lot, sometimes freezes. But games like GTA, Fifa work fine - no lag in high graphics. I've done a lot of things, reinstalled the windows - nothing helps. Is this normal? Do I need a SSD for windows 10 or what?.... Or do I need to install windwos 10 as UEFI? But I read that there is not a big difference. The HDD has no errors, checked it many times, the transfer speeds are good. The next thing, I decided to go to Windows 7 64 bit on this notebook.

Hello All, I have several issues with my Y700-15ISK. I have the latest BIOS (CDCN35NWW or something from 2016/03/29) (in EUFI mode). The latest one, before all BIOS updates in connection with Y700 15ISKi disappeared from the Lenovo sites. I mostly use the latop with an external monitor via HDMI. Sometimes (I could not find a rule when) it starts to display red dots over the screen. If it is 3D graphics it moves along with the texture. You can see screenshots in the link below. The second problem is that the display goes black at random times and then it comes back after a 1-2 seconds. It is like when you change the resolution. The 3rd problem is when the BIOS is in EUFI mode sometimes I get a VGA error 43 in the Windows Device Manager. The system tells me that it had problems with the device and disabled it completely. The solution for this is to reset the BIOS back to factory defaults and reconfigure it to the desired state. This is jus ta workaround because this problem can occur also totally random. I've tested my external display with my other laptop Lenovo T440s with DisplayPort to HDMI converter and the same HDMI cable. Never experienced any problems. Tried Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 64 bit systems and all the Chipset, and VGA drivers which came out since then (provided by both Lenovo and Nvidia). Pictures of the screen:https://1drv.ms/f/s!AmvQYqr8ukT-gYg6a85wd6zmvNESxw Could you help me identify the core of the problem?  Tha...

I recently bought a M.2 SSD and I want to use it as a cache drive. Intels RST requires AHCI mode, I was under the assumption that I was already in AHCI mode but my inability to create any raid volumes through the disk management or have my drives recognized by the RST app says otherwise. There is no option to change my mode from IDE to AHCI in BIOS due to it being locked. How can I work around this?

A:Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ISK how to put into AHCI

Look in the device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller, it should say Intel(R) 100 Series/C230 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. For your second part of your question, you need at least 2 disk with unallocated areas to make a RAID array. But, saying that I would never setup a software RAID (ie windows) array and the BIOS doesnt support a hardware RAID

So I'm planning on buying this model: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15ISK, but the one I'm looking to buy doesn't have an SSD and doesn't specify which ports are still available, only that it has a 1TB HDD. So I wanted to ask: 1. Does it have a free M.2 port? all models of the Y700-15ISK should have them, or am I wrong? 2. Which type of M.2 SSD does it support? M or B+M? I already sent the same questions to the retailer, but I am still waiting for an answer so thought I'd ask here as well.

Anyone having similar problem and fixed it?

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cm² area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

Hi! The latest V53 BIOS have two annoying bugs: 1. After putting laptop into sleep mode and turning it on again after 'some' time front speakers not working, only subwoofer works and playing lofreq only. After system reboot front speakers backs and plays normally. Sometimes that problem doesn't happen, all works nominally after laptop wake up. 2. After putting headphone plug into socket and remove it and putting plug again headphones output not work anymore - front speakers going to off state and no any sound output goes to headphones. After plug remove speakers back to playing normally, but headphone output not. Thats happens after laptop wake up from sleep mode and 'clean' reboot state too. In my opinion that problem is related to EC? firmware, after laptop wake up controller not properly reinitialized to 'normal' state and broke Realtek chip or drivers. System reboot fixes that problem because EC restarting/resetting when you done this. Tried reflashing BIOS to the same version - not fixing that problem too.

Hello, On occasion, the keyboard of my Lenovo Y700 will cease accepting input. It however is still being fed power due to the persistence of the backlight and lights of the Num Lock and Caps Lock keys. I can still navigate with my mousepad. Some time after the keyboard locks out, the computer will slowly crash, e.g. my applications begin displaying the "Not Responding" dialog, and eventually the computer boots to a Lenovo Safe Mode screen where my keyboard still cannot receive input. I then shut the computer off using the power button (which makes a strange popping noise coming from inside the computer) and reboot. The computer then works fine. And then the same error happens over and over again. I dealt with it for a little bit since it would happen only once a day or so. But the rate of lockout-crashing has been increasing. My drivers are all up to date. I'm at a loss. This is incredibly frustrating, especially considering the error happens at unpredictable times.Thank you for reading,neitorfuModel Name: Y700-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) Serial #: PF0I44L4 Machine Type: 80NV0026US

Just got this laptop 2 months ago via amazon. I am a DJ and use Serato DJ software. I have only played 1 party with the new laptop. I am running windows 7 and windows 10 (difference partitions) Today I decided to build the overviews of my music collection. The software uses all 8 cores (8 songs at a time) to build them. I had the laptop running for about 2 hours. Everything was running fine. I even have the laptop slightly elavated in the back to get extra air flow. All of sudden the laptop shut off. I noticed that the charge light on the front of the laptop was no longer while. Power brick was pretty hot which seems normal for the intense core usage. Called tech support and went through some tech support, have to call back since there database was down. I suspect something on the laptop motherboard or memory etc went toast. This is my first Lenovo laptop ever. I have been a Dell guy for over 10 years, never ever had any hardware issues in 4 other laptops.  What can I expect from Lenovo warranty service? Anyone have any other thoughts on what the heck could have happened. This is probably the most intense I have run the laptop. DJ with the software isn't as intense as building overviews. Think of it as rendering.

Windows 10 Pro. v30BIOS. Sometimes after waking up from sleep laptop freezes and only way to reset it is to press power button for 4sec. This starts to irritate me, especialy when I go out for one hour, i put laptop to sleep, come back open it up and it crashes with all my work unsaved.. Also sometimes my NVIDIA drivers crashes, causing same problem to crash laptop Anyone experienced this issues. I did windows update and clean install of NVIDIA drivers from nvidia.com

Hi y70015ISKm2SSD , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
What you can initially try is to disable fast boot under shutdown settings > advanced power options.
 
If same issue continue to disable "allow hybrid sleep" either from same advance power settings or from cmd as administrator using powercfg -h off to disable hibernation if needed. 
 
Update us how it goes . 
 
Regards

Hi everyone, I am writting to ask you about embedded SSD that is plugged in mentioned in topic notebook. I see this laptop on many websites with 240GB SSD in but I can not find any information about this disk. I understand that many companies put disks in by their own but then they write what type it is (for example samsung evo etc.). This 240 GB SSD looks like Lenovo service.  If anyone has some information about it please answer. Thank you for ur support, Peter

Hi all,I had problem with my Lenovo y700-15ISKSpecification:Windows 10 Pro, 16GB Ram, i5-6300HQ, GF 960M + Intel HD Graphics 530I have installed latest drivers for both graphic cards and for WindowsThe problem is the screen, which at various times suddenly freezes, pop pixels. This takes about 15 seconds, laptop restarts and turns back. I think that in the course of the appearance of pixels, the sound is distortedSometimes this situation happens a few times a day, but also i have day without this issueIt happens radomly, when i'm browse the internet, when playing or once it happens when nothing on it was made, was just turned on...The computer was checked several times by OCCT and during the test the program is not shut downAlso i have ckecked that laptop, it's not overheating.Anybody have similar problem? Any solutions?

I can't seem to find my specs on the Lenovo site for my model, purchased directly from amazon. Model is 80NV0026US. This Lenovo site. http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/IdeaPad_Y700?ch=80NV00Site does not list my model number!???My laptop is 2 months old and is in the Lenovo repair shop (Computer shut off completely in middle of rendering files) I suspect the motherboard got fried. Not happy with Lenovo at all right now, seeing this is a gaming machine I thought it was going to be able to handle heavy computing. Anyways, I am looking to add a m.3 SSD drive when I get the laptop back. Good deals on drives right now. Specifically looking at a Samsung - 850 EVO 500GB (MZ-N5E500BW). I can't figure out what is compatible with my machine multiple threads saying PCIe and some Nvme. No clue why this is so complicated. Can anyone comment on the above drive compatibility?
