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,  I bought a Lenovo Ideapad 300 a few months ago and its been freezing a lot, at first it was once in awhile, every few days and I didn't really notice it all. However it has now started to freeze multiple times a day and I don't understand why. I could be watching a video on YouTube or facebooking friends or on a call on Discord and bang it will freeze, no logic or reason to what I'm doing which would casue it to freeze but it does freeze.  I read someone suggest that Microsoft Edge could be causing the probelm but I don't use Edge, I use chrome for all my major browsing.  When it freezes I have to hard reset my laptop which constantly doing that isn't great.  Could anyone provide any possible insight or help?

My 2 month old ideapad 305 in the last 24 hours stops responding after about 10 minutes. On the display I can see all the programs that were open and sometimes move the mouse around. I cannot however carry out any tasks such as closing programs, opening programs, restart computer, run diagnostics etc. The only thing I can do is a hard reset. I've tried to restart the computer in safe mode but it won't respond. Today I have noticed that the clock is frozen so the computer seems the have frozen at the point (see attached file it froze at 8:47 and it's after 9 when I'm posting this). From logging on I've timed and the computer freezers between 5 and 10 minutes later. Anyone know what the problems? How I can fix it in the 5 to 10 minute window I have when it logs on?

For my y700 laptop, I recently formatted the os disk and reinstalled windows 10. But before I could do updates, and at random intervals, the cursor moves to the middle of the screen and the computer freezes. I can't get any drivers because the computer freezes before it can finish installing. Any solutions?

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 310 about a month ago, shortly after installing all reccomended updates on the Lenovo companion app, including reccomended BIOS and Windows 10 updates my laptop has started getting semi random freezes. When a freeze occurs the entire system locks up, the sound makes a very short interval constant loop, and I have to preform a full reboot. It seems to happen more frequently when playing certain games (CSGO, Left 4 Dead 2) Less frequently when playing less demanding games (Starbound, Minecraft) however sometimes it feels like it can happen at any time as it has happened a few times just browsing the internet or once while idle and downloading something in the background.Sometimes I can tell when it's about to happen. In the case where the computer is about to freeze while playing CSGO I lose connection to the server, the game tell's me it's attempting to reconnect, every time I see this the computer goes into the freeze 5-10 seconds later, This morning I was fast enough to alt tab before the freeze and noticed that my laptop said it was still connected to the internet just before it then froze and I had to reboot I have no idea what could possibly be causing this but wanted to know what my options are or wether anybody else was experiencing similar constant and seemingly random freezes

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
 
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

Are you able to get into the advanced boot menu by tapping F8? It might not be listed on the startup screen but it should still be there.
 
If not you can burn a repair disc from any PC with Windows 7. Theres steps from Microsoft Here.

New Yoga 700-141SK: Ran the Lenovo Support Center Hardware Scan and the Video Card Mathematical Operations Test has failed rendering the Report: WVC007002-UL7BPL. Is there a tried and proven solution out there? I have had a look at the solutions on the forum and am not satisfied that the solutions offered prove that the problem has been resolved. It is reasonable to expect Lenovo to make available a solution as a matter of course instead of end-users of "afflicted" Lenovo devices having to request/search for a solution(s).

The short answer is "yes".

Check out Jesse Andersen's site on the S10-3t. He's pretty much the expert on that machine.

Hi and welcome

the probable cause of all three crashes is NETw5s64.sys, which is part of your Intel wifi driver;
I would update the driver

also run a system file check.

I've had this lenovo ideapad 510 for 2 months and it has been nothing but trouble. I've done too many fixes for it for just 2 months but now the fan noise is really unaccceptable. With just 3 tabs open it sounds like a jet taking off and I cannot use it while watching a movie on TV because it's too loud. I have been here on this forum for over a week trying to get a solution but am getting totally ignored. I guess Lenovo's customer service is as good as their products.Please post a fix that works, otherwise let's arrange for me to return this for 50% refund so I can get a laptop that actaully works. I've read the problem is that Lenovo is not compatible with Windows 10 and that is why it's a nigthmare.Why did you release this product with these confirmed problems?1. Touchpad sometimes goes crazy and can't be used2. Unnacceptable fan noise3. Memory and Disk running at 100%I feel cheated as I'm doing more technical work to rid this laptop of problems than actaully being able to browse the net or watch anything.

Hi,I am almost 90% interesed to buy a new Lenovo ideapad S210 20256, that comes with an Intel Celeron 1037U 1,8GHz, 2GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, 11inch screen. Mfg Date: 2014/03/24.I found an online manual (PDF), and based on that I assume I can upgrade the RAM to 8GB at MAX. Now my actual main concern is the GPU. I heard that the laptop comes with an Intel HD Graphics but found here at notebookcheck.net that the intel HD Graphics 2500 is also called Intel HD Graphics. Now I am a bit confused.At the Intel website it is said to be the Intel HD Graphics.So I would like if someone can confirm to me what is the GPU used? I appreciate any help.










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo Ideapad S210 GPU?

The Intel HD Graphics is built in to the processor, so depending on the processor, it could be called Intel HD Graphics, or Intel HD Graphics 4000 grapdepending on which CPU your system comes with.     The Lower grade Celeron CPU having a lower grade Intel HD Graphics card and the I3 a bit better Intel HD Graphics 4000 as shown in the spec sheets. The Celeron equipped S210 with the Intel HD Graphics will perform a bit slower than the Core i3 equipped S210 model with the Intel HD Graphics 4000, but both should work well for casual computing and Internet browsing.     Neither 2-core CPUs or graphics card is great for power hungry video games, so if you are a gamer I would look for a different system altogether with a quad core CPU etc.    Lenovo S210 Touch Laptophttp://shop.lenovo.com/ae/en/laptops/lenovo/s-series/s210-touch/#tab-tech_specs Lenovo S210 Touch CPU/graphics specificatoins Intel Celeron Processor 1037U (2M Cache, 1.80 GHz)http://ark.intel.com/products/71995/Intel-Celeron-Processor-1037U-2M-Cache-1_80-GHz Intel Core? i3-3227U Processor (3M Cache, 1.90 GHz)http://ark.intel.com/products/72057/Intel-Core-i3-3227U-Processor-3M-Cache-1_90-GHz  Hope that helps

Moderator comment: Moved it for you.
 
I decided to invest in a new laptop as my other one had fallen on the ground, and lately for the past two month's all I've been having with it was troubles. Ther first problem I had was with the external microphone I used (Blue Yeti) It wouldn't detect or something and eventually made my speakers and microphone stop working all together. With no clue on how to fix it I ended up factory resetting my product. Everything's been fine with this problem, but if you have a fix to it if it arrises again then that'd be helpful.
 
Just yesterday I had a problem with my laptop where I was using it and the screen suddenly went black, I restarted it and the LENOVO loading screen came up only to have it stuck on the screen with a loading symbol and my curser. I contacted a live agent who told me to factory reset my laptop which brings me onto what happens when I do that below;
 
I have also had a problem where It would update from windows 8.1 to windows 10 & "Windows Explorer" would continue to crash and refresh every second thus making the laptop un-useable in this state unless I open a program through "Task Manager". Due to this problem I had to factory reset my laptop about five times as I cannot resolve it and it continues to arrise if I set a background to my laptop - I have tried everything, from updating drivers to much more and have yet to find a fix t...
