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

Hey guys, I have a Lenovo Ideapad IdeaPad 100 14ibd - win10 and basically im planning on formatting my laptop to get rid of all the stuff/unknown files that are terribly slowing down my ram. But im still new to this process so im wondering if using Lenovo's Onekey recovery is a good thing but then i saw the Reset this PC feature of windows is another thing. My question is, what would be the more recommended thing i should do to get my laptop to its original state just like the new windows 10, or are there any difference within those  two?PS: I got my back up files all set from this laptop to my external hd already Thank you!

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

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

I have an Asus R558ur which work fast than IdeaPad 310, The quality of my Asus laptop is better than this Lenovo laptop. The Asus laptop cost me 36K and this Lenovo laptop cost me 45K. Lenovo laptop comes full of garbage apps (MC Afee), blah blah, If I run both sides by side. From now on I will never use any lenovo product and will never guide anyone to use lenovo anymore. Done! 1. Asus laptop has a keyboard and better shift key ( In Lenovo it's small).2. VS run faster on Intel 6200u based Asus then Lenovo. 3. Lenovo runs Lenovo.imcontroller and too many s** in the pc. Why the hell Lenovo not even tested the thing they ship. Did Lenovo hardware team even test the keyboard quality before shipping the product? Quality of Lenovo product is worst

Does anyone know the functions of the Lenovo Utility app? I am aware that it flashes up with an on screen symbol when the caps lock or num lock is pressed but what else can it do? I only ask as I want to disable it in order to stop the on screen notification that caps lock is on from appearing everytime I press the key. However I read somewhere that the app also handles the battery management and don't want to disable it if it will harm my pc. When I go into details in task manager it just appears as Lenovo Utility. So can I safley diable it? or will it cause an issue? Thanks

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

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 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.

Hi SSO,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
Does the freezing issue occur even if you restart in Safe Mode?
 
Also, Run a few tests from this link -

You should try Storage test, memory test, motherboard test, CPU test. Post results and let?s review.
 
Hope this helps.

You didn't need to set the boot mode to Legacy Support, you should install it without legacy support, but install on the UEFI, so next time turn the legacy support OFF, and install the Windows on the UEFI. If you turn legacy off, it automatically should be UEFI
