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.)

Got this notebook two days ago and tried to use the tablet mode. I realized that the touch screen wasn't working and went to check the device manager only to find out that the HID compliant touch screen driver is missing. While checking, I noticed that Wacom device driver also could not start as well (Code 10). Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on? I really would like to use the tablet mode of this laptop instead of having to return it due to the touch screen not working.

I recently purchased the Flex 5-1570 80XB from Costco. When trying to register it on the Lenovo site, as well as the support site, I am told to that the serial number is not valid or to "enter a right serial number" . I tried to find a phone number to call Lenovo, but did not have any luck.

Hi, my CPU is i7-8550u and my GPU is MX150. V2.05 of the BIOS (4qcn41ww) works well. However, the big issue is that the fan curve is so high that fans will spin 24/7, even on idle. The laptop is able to overclock/underclock in response to demand needs. Excellent, but too loud. I upgraded to V2.07, which definitely fixed the fan curve problem, especially when "Quiet Mode" is selected in the BIOS. HOWEVER, there is one extreme issue, the clock speed will be fixed to a single speed indefinitely until reboot. The clock speed is not able to dynamically change. This is terrible because it either is fixed to 0.4Ghz (EXTREMELY SLOW) or 1.8Ghz (still slow, bearable, but I shouldn't have to deal with this in my purchase). These clock speeds were provided by Windows Task Manager. The throttle starts at a random time, and doesn't end until the computer is rebooted. After dealing with V2.07, I've reverted to V2.05 (provided by a Lenovo Chat assistant). I'm back to loud fans, but a properly running device. This issue is not heat related, I don't think. I have a CPU temperature reading, and it throttles to 0.4Ghz even at 45C (which is idle). I've attempted to fix this problem, if it may be thermals, by applying an undervolt via Throttlestop. However, the issue persists regardless of it throttlestop is running or not. I've ran an Official Lenovo Hardware Scan, and my computer comes up clean. For a $1000 laptop, I'm really surprised at how shoddy o... Read more

Hi, In the Lenovo Settings application when I toggle on the conservation mode for the battery, the battery should stop charging at around 60%. However, even though the conservation mode is toggled on, the battery will charge to 100% and stay at 100%. The icon near the battery usually would indicate whether the AC adapter is plugged in by showing a plug and if you would toggle conservation mode, this AC adapter plug would change into a leaf. However now it is always a leaf, whether I the conservation mode is on or off.  I appreciate all suggestions.

Hello, I just bought this laptop and updated it. Came with a pen and everything, was excited.Touchscreen did not work what so ever. Nor does the pen. Called tech support and they said I had no software warrentey and gave me a pitch on why I should buy it. Regardless, did not help. HID compliant touch screen driver is nonexistant, and I'm assuming that's because of the Windows 10 Update, but I can't be sure. Can someone help?

Has anyone else's Lenovo Battery Power Conservation Mode stopped working? I have a Lenovo FLEX 5-1570 and Conservation Mode recently stopped functioning. Everything else appears to be working fine but now when I have my laptop plugged in, it charges to 100% and remains there. I've tried turning Conservation Mode off and back on. I've tried rebooting. I've tried reinstalling the BIOS and Chipset software. None of these fix the problem. The worst part is Lenovo "support". Lenovo hardware support is completely separate from Lenovo software support and they do not talk to one another. Lenovo hardware support provided no support other than suggesting trying to reinstall the BIOS and Chipset updates. (My best guess is their latest BIOS update created the problem.) Lenovo software support will not provide support for their own software, even though the laptop is under warranty, without paying extra for it! Knowing this now, I will never buy another Lenovo product.

A:Conservation Mode for Lenovo Vantage no longer working

Laura545, that topic thread appears to be slightly different than the one I'm experiencing. My Conservation Mode does not disable itself. It just no longer works even though Lenovo Vantage states it is enabled. I found this topic thread which is more like the issue I'm experiencing: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-Ideapad-700-conservation-mode-no... It appears as though Lenovo has been reintroducing this bug for a while now.

I opened my one month old Lenovo Flex 5-1570 to see what is going on inside because what I read / see is confusing and have these questions (I?m aware that my actions may void the warranty): The maintenance manual say to first unplug the battery plug and then remove the battery but I can?t unplug it. The only place to pull the plug out is the wires and I don?t want to apply too much pressure doing so. I also tried to pry out the plug with no success. Perhaps the plug is locked and I wonder if on the attached picture the 2 small holes shown on the top of the plugs socket are the locks and maybe I should put something to press into these holes to release the plug. Anyone knows if the battery plug is locked? For the benefit of other users, as per attached picture (noticed I'm only allowed to post 1 picture only) the HDD includes the bracket required to install the HDD and there is no cable required. Looks like the new HDD just plugs in. Also the manual says to remove 2 screws to remove the HDD but there are 3 screws to remove.

?I bought a laptop, Lenovo flex -1570 from US through amazon.com, for my father's birthday present. Thanks for ruining it in a way that I could have never imagined. In just 2 days of laptop usage, the mouse pad has come out. The amazing service center in India (ticket no. HT014716010) said that the glue that held mousepad to the laptop "WASN'T STICKY ENOUGH" and added that they do not support this laptop as its "international warranty" is limited to US and China and I need to take it to your US service center to fix it. $619 laptop, 2 days, and it is nothing more than a junk box to me.

There is screen image on the screen even after it has beenclosed or minimized- Ghost effect.(Not sure about terminology).External monitor works fine with HDMI.2 years old laptop. No more warranty. I have opened my laptop, unplugged the lcd screen and lcd cable and replugged everything back together hoping it was a lcd inverter or backlight problem. But nothing changed. The cable looked fine without any damage, and the screen looked fine from the inside. Please suggest if is a problem is with lcd cable or lcd digitzer or  something I do not know. I don't see the point of taking the laptop to repair and getting charged 250-300$ where as I can get a decent new laptop for 350-450$.

I recently purchased the Flex 5, and thought it would be fun to get an active pen to go with it, so I picked up a Bamboo Ink pen. All was well for the first evening with the pen, I was able to control things with it, draw with it, everything you would expect from a pen. The next morning started fine, but after about an hour then pen stopped working. Nothing changed on the laptop, the pen simply went from working to not working. Thinking it might be something with the pen, I went ahead and purchased a Lenovo Active Pen. When it arrived and I installed the battery... nothing. No response from the computer at all to the pen. At this point I was worried that there might be some incompatability with some installed software, so I restored Windows, wiping out everything I had setup over the week that I had the computer. During the Windows setup process the pen started working. Hurray! All seemed well, until the next morning, when the pen stopped responding again. I now had two pens that had previously worked, but now were not responding. Exasperated, I restored Windows again, but this time, nothing. That brings us to this morning. I ran a complete re-install of Windows. Once again, nothing. I then found an update BIOS for the computer and installed it. This time on rebooting, both pens began working. For the rest of the day everything seemed fine.  Though you should have realized, I wouldn't be writing this if everything were still fine. Yes, this evening, the la... Read more

Please give me a decent Solution for that problem as I can't work on the Ideapad this way.....2- Since I bought this laptop and I am using it regularly so I wanted to limit the battery usage to increase its lifespan so I have download Lenovo settings and Companion to Activate the Conservation Mode but It never worked, It never limited the battery to 60% and the battery still goes to completion....So I need a solution for thatThanks in advance.

Hi everyone. I can see that people with other similar style Lenovo laptops (Yoga 900) complain about the same issue so was wondering if there is a solution or an optimized version of this software. I did an update of the BIOS and the Power Management driver and still a constant power usage.  Once the laptop is flipped the YMC detects it and turns off the keyboard functionality to prevent accidental presses and that is pretty much all until it flipped back and enabled. And all of this requires a constant high CPU usage? Any help would be highly appreciated. I also tried rolling back to older drivers without luck in decreasing this CPU hog usage. To put such load on a i5 6th gen CPU really implies an inferior service integration....

I have a Flex 15. I bought a USB-C Hub with Ethernet connection. I naively thought that this would allow me to establish a wired connection from my router to my PC. But it appears that the machine doesn't automatically connect to my LAN through the adapter I purchased.
Is there any way to get a wired connection to the LAN with this machine so I can get better-than-wifi (54.0Mbps) connection speed?I see that there is an option to "establish a Broadband Connection." Is this relevant? I can't figure out how to make it work.

Hi,
 
I don't have any model Flex, but the way I read the specs the Flex 15 already has an RJ45 Ethernet port and doesn't suppot USB-C.
 
Perhaps this is a different model?  A Flex 5 15 inch, maybe?
 
I'd expect a USB-whatever to Ethernet adapter to work but there's always a chance for individual compatibility issues.
 
How about a link to the adapter you purchased, and some clarity on the laptop model?  (And my apologies if I've mis-read your post...)
