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, last thursday I got my brand new Lenovo laptop Yoga 710-15IKB. Everything went smoothly with the setup and the computer looked great was working fine. When I finished setting up some essential programs browser etc, and was watching a youtube video my laptop just froze, fan was running but the screen keyboard cursor frozen. I thought nothing of it and restarted my computer and nothing happened after that. So I thought I was free to enjoy my good looking device. But now after my third usage I closed my laptop and went out to run some errands I came back an hour later or so and tried to open my computer and keep on using it but to my surprise the screen stayed black. Completely black, no flickering or anything. So i tried to reboot it by holding the start button down for 10s giving the computer a minute or so to rest then turned it back on. Same thing happens Keyboard lights up for a second or two then the fans just keep running and the screen stays completely black. This is extremely frustrating since this is a brand new computer and I desperately need it for studying and work. Screen black, computer starts and runs I can hear the fans keyboard lights up at first but screen is completely black. I would appreciate a quick response Lenovo, I had so high hopes for my new laptop. Best regards, Elisabet.

Hi.I just bought V130-15IKB Laptop (type 81HN00EURI) for my mom. I want to upgrade the RAM as the 4 GB soldered might not be enough.I would like to add an aditional 4 GB so the system can work in dual channel mode.

Hi, I want to upgrade my Windows to the latest update (October 2018). But upon reading the Lenovo support website, it seems that it's advisable to upgrade Intel Graphics Driver to version 24.20.100.6286 and newer which is available with Intel Audio Driver 10.25.0.10. I have tried updating my drivers through Lenovo Vantage, but that only installed the Nvidia VGA driver, not the Intel one. I also checked the available drivers on Lenovo support page but the Intel Graphics Driver version I need is not listed. Am I missing anything? Is there a timeline on when that driver is going to come out? Thanks.

A week ago, I bought Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIMM (CT8G4SFS824A & single ranked) as Crucial System Scanner suggested it is compatible with my brand new Lenovo V110-15IKB. Its OS is Windows 10. I have inserted this ram part into my laptop and it works well. 12GB appears under Device specifications at About (its 4GB is non-removable). However, when I shut it down and next day, it won't boot. Just black screen, CapsLk light is on (normally it turns off before Lenovo logo appears) and not responding. I have removed ram part and laptop booted with original 4GB ram. I reinserted 8GB part back and it booted.  But it's still same, it won't boot second time unless 8GB part is removed and reinserted. I've looked for solutions across the internet but none worked (most of them are for home-built PCs) including safe mode resetting (supposed there to be troubleshooting but this laptop didn't have done troubleshooting after resetting and yet it won't boot second time). Also, I got BIOS/UEFI driver upgrade from Lenovo but it's still same. Though I have no idea how to use UEFI. Sorry, I'm not much technological person. I'm baffled with this. I haven't seen similar problem as this. Why does laptop refuse to boot second time with 8GB installed? Is this 8GB ram defective? Should I use other 8GB part (dual ranked one)? What about 2666 one? I don't want to open my laptop repeatably as it would wear ram slot out. Any solutions? Thank you. By the way, I have po... Read more

Please uninstall Nvidia driver and components from "Control Panel --> Programs". First uninstall components like Nvidia update , 3D vision , Physx etc and Display driver at last. Once all the Nvidia components are removed, restart the machine and go to the below link to auto detect the latest driver available.

Install the driver and reboot the machine. Now follow instructions from the below link and set Nvidia power management to "Maximum Performance".

Hi,Today I received a package containing my brand new laptop, the Ideapad 510-15IKB. Full of excitement, I unboxed it and turned it on, tried to proceed with installing windows 10. The first reboot came, but the laptop stayed off. I noticed, then, that the led which should have been lit orange, near where the AC adapter plugs in, wasn't on (although the laptop was plugged in). I checked the cable and it does transmit the AC, so the problem is probably with the laptop. Does anyone know if there is any possibility of it being fixable without opening the laptop up myself? I've already contacted the dealer and I'll send it back to them, but I just wanted to first check if there may be anything worth trying by myself. I read that for some older (I think?) laptops, you could perform some sort of reset by pressing the on/off button for 4 seconds, with the battery and the AC adapter out of the laptop, but with this model, the battery can't be taken out, so...Thanks in advance for any response and sorry if my "briefing" was a bit too long lol. Cheers!Alex

Hello @Foujj,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I'd like to help!

 

SSD is faster when compared to the regular HDD's. SSD's is the latest technology in the market and since it does not have any rotating spindles, chances of failure is significantly less.

skates15 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wanting to replace the HDD in your new laptop with an SDD and wanted to help.In Win10, the product is embedded in the UEFI firmware of the motherboard, so changing the HDD to an SDD will have no affect on that. Also, the activation key is stored on the MS Activation servers, and that key is not affected by changing the HDD to an SDD. So, you will have no activation problems with this swap. Since I have done this myself, let me offer some advice -- use Macrium Reflect to "clone" the HDD to the SDD. What I recommend is the following:1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR)2) Connect the new drive to the PC using a USB drive adapter3) Run MR and choose the option: "Backup --> Image Selected Disks" to clone the current drive onto the new drive.4) Shutdown the PC when done5) Swap the drives and reboot the PC.You should boot from the new drive without any problems.Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

Hi, I have purchased a brand new t480S a few weeks ago. During the installation first the touchscreen became unresponsive , after like 3-4 hours.  A few hours later the mouse cursor started to act really strange - it is going up or down on its own. Further it is accelerating, so even if you try to compensate with the mouse / trackpoint / touchpad you can do it for 1-2 secs, after it inevitably 'wins' and runs out from the screen. The problem occurs every time you use over cca 50% of the laptop's capacity, basically after it heats up. The laptop is unusable in its present form, after 8 hours of usage.. Before you ask, yes, I did send it to the 'support'.. The support.. Well, if I would tell you how and what they did I think I would be banned from these forums forever. Let's just say I have little hope that they will solve my issue I just hope that they will give back my laptop without further damages. (Last time I tried to get it back I was told that it is disassembled and waiting for some spare parts - yet they could not tell me which spare parts..) Anyone had any similar issues? Mouse cursor running wild when the computer heats up? Same time touchsreen dying? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks,Denes

It was my 6th and last Lenovo laptop ever. I'm professional engineer since 1997 and I know how to work on hardware. 1. After 1 month of usage Lower Case was broken when I just touched it.2. After 4 month of usage Display's mounts were completely destroyed. When I opened the case I found that Lower Case plastic was made of **bleep**. It was very easy to break this "plastic" just when touching by a finger.3. After 10 month I got a few drops of rain over the keyboard. I dried it with fan (for 24 hrs). But it doesn't help me. Now I use external keyboard. btw on lenovo ideapad 510-15ikb it is not easy to replace a keyboard. The biggest problem -  live in Thailand, where technical support is very long and can't give you any guarantees. Conclusion: I have almost new laptop (less than 1 year old) which is absolutely in troubles. And (once again) this is not my first laptop, but I never ever had anything even close to this. I still like Lenovo's design, but it seems like they choose a wrong OEM.I will never buy any Lenovo devices again and I will tell about it to as many people as I can.  I'm not looking for support, I just want Lenovo people to know that they do wrong business now. This is not good to be so greedy.

I got this laptop 2 days ago for my online job and when I tried to use it to work, it was so sluggish. I'm planning to add more ram to it. It has a 4gb ddr4 2400mhz ram soldered unto the board. I use 3 browsers for my job. 4 tabs on firefox, 8 to 10 tabs on chrome, 1 tab on opera browser, 1 soft phone app, 1 time tracking app, 1-5 ms word docs, 2 notepads, and 1 windows explorer open at the same time.My question: Do I need 4gb more to make it 8gb total? Or do i need 8gb more to make it 12gb total?I need all the help I can get. Thanks

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up. McAfee is newly installed and always scanning for viruses, but I can't do a full scan now without the laptop freezing and quiting. I don't know if it's a problem from windows 10 or the laptop. Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.

Hi, I recently bought an ideapad 310 and I've been trying to connect it to my TV using the VGA connection without success. As soon as I plug the cable in to the PC port the screen freezes and showing only the desktop. Any open window cannot be accessed and even though I can bring up the start menu I cannot launch any program and see it (the program runs but I cannot see it). The HDMI connection works well. Has anybody had the same problem? Can it be a display setting set wrong? Please advise.Many thanks in advance.
