Blurry apps on Yoga S730

Q: Blurry apps on Yoga S730

Hello everyone. I have just purchased the Lenovo Yoga S730 (or Ideapad 730s) and I notice that there are many applications that are shown extremely blurry. I searched Google for "blurry apps on Windows 10 fix" and followed the instructions but nothing seems to work. I have also tried to reinstall Windows twice but the issue still remains. Can anyone please help? Thanks a lot.

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 deal with this problem since an upgrade to windows 10 and hopefully someone of you guys know the solution.  I have a dpi scaling set for 150% and that is fine for me except some apps are really blurry (so far i noticed for example skype, spotify, facebook chat/search bar in web browsers, even device manager). I searched the web for a solution and each of them tell me to set scalling for 100, 125% or manually disable dpi scaling for every app i use but when i do this everything is ridiculously small so it is not really the solution, more like bypassing it.So, going to the point, do you know any way to keep apps like skype big and make them sharp at the same time? I know it is probably more windows 10 issue and its scalling on 14" fullhd screens but maybe someone has a solution or at least more information about it (does microsoft knows about this issue, do they work on some fix or smth?) Oh, and also my two finger tap doesn't work (i only have two fingers click). I read posts about changing the registry on windows 8.1 but unfortunately it didn't work for me on windows 10. Best regards

Hi Stohenry! Welcome to our forums community. Is it still overheating when it is on idle? Could you try updating the BIOS firmware here: https://support.lenovo.com/ provide the model or serial number and go to Drivers and Software tab. Look for BIOS/EUFI and install it. Restart the computer and check if the issue persist. Update us with the result.

Hi all, I bought a Yoga S730 lately and it's been doing good. However, I found that when I unplug it, the wifi is not stable. It will stay connected to my wifi but there isn't Internet until I restart the wifi adapter. But it will happen again after less than 30 mins. If I plugged in, the issue didn't occur so far. I have been researching about that issue and some suggest that I should change the Power Management to uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and also the Wireless Adapter Settings in Power Options to Maximum Performance. But that doesn't help. Is it just me or does anyone has the same issue? Thank you!

Hi!Just bought a new Yoga S730-13IWL (81J0002VMX). After setting it up I also updated Windows 10 to version 1903.

I went to update the bios and use lenovos vantage tool as well updated  the drivers but the problem still exists. What can I do about the tiny dent and the overheating problem?

Welcome to the forums.  If you have a dent and you are unhappy I would ask for an exchange immediately.  As time passes you can't get an exchange plus you might be considered CID(Customer Induced Damage).  With that being said it seems so small I would keep it.  BUT you are not me and its your money you are spending and ultimately you are the one that needs to be happy.  All I'm saying is if you want to exchange do it right away while you still can.

Hi,

About a week ago, I've installed Windows 8 Pro x64 on an empty partition just to test it out for the sake of adopting it 100% of the time to replace my Windows 7 and the first thing I realized is unpleasant looking fonts that is looking ugly, pixelated and jaggded everywhere in Windows!. Tried to tweak ClearType which proved to be useless as usual since I still have bad looking fonts that are not eye friendly. I installed MacType and now the fonts in most Windows (Except Metro) are nicer (really wished that Windows can offer this crispness by default )

P.S. I use Samsung SyncMaster S22B300 with Radeon HD 5450 running native resolution of 1920x1080 and am using latest catalyst driver (13-12_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql)

Regarding metro interface/apps like mail, calendar...etc, I tried searching and searching but no solution was able to solve that problem so far.

e.g. Someone suggested "There is an option inside this Catalyst tool that is called GPU scaling. By moving this slider to 0% it pushed the image to the edge of the screen and obviously into the native resolution of the monitor and suddenly pin sharp image"
BUT IT DIDN"T WORK!

Another one suggested "Open catalyst >> go to gaming section >> under gaming go to 3D Application settings >>in the anti-alising section if you select morphological filtering the text on windows 8 apps become blurred"

But this option is already OFF and I'm still left with bad looking text everywhere... Read more

I have the scaling on my laptop display set to 125% and the scaling on my external monitor set to 100%. Both displays have 1920x1080 resolution. The laptop is connected to the monitor using a VGA cable via a OneLink adaptor. Windows Store applications, Windows Explorer, and Microsoft Edge look sharp on both displays. However some applications that I use a lot only look sharp on one display and look a bit blurry/fuzzy on the other. Examples are Google Chrome and Microsoft Word. They are sharp on whichever display is set as primary, and blurry/fuzzy on whichever is non-primary (i.e. it changes when I change the primary display). If I set the scaling to be the same on both displays (i.e. both 100% or both 125%) these applications look sharp on both displays. Do others experience this issue?Apart from setting both displays to the same scaling (which is not ideal) is there anythig I can do to resolve this? Thanks
