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 have some questions about this product. Could you please let me know the answers? 1. Is the SSD user replacable?2. For the 1TB version, is the SSD NVMe PCIe 3.0x4 at 32Gb/s?3. Are those two USB 3.0 Type-C ports running independently at full speed?4. It uses the same Intel UHD 620 as the X1 Yoga Gen3. Why it can only drive an external monitor at [email protected] 60Hz while the X1Y3 can drive at [email protected] 60Hz5. Does it use something like S0 or S3 which could cause compatibility issue with Linux?6. What are the differences between the Yoga C930 and X1 Yoga Gen 3?7. Given the same tasks, which one is less nosiy?

Hi, I want to clone the internal Samsung 1TB SSD from this laptop to an external Samsung T5 SSD. I tried the Samsung Data Migration software but got a cloning error. Then, the T5 SSD disappeared when I clicked "This PC" on the desktop. 1. Could you please let me know how the SSD in this Yoga C930 is organized?Is there a hidden partition and another recovery partition? I know that before one returns a computer, one could go to Windows to recover the laptop to its factory stage. Is there some kind of hidden partition that stores Windows? I suppose that if I just click on Windows-SSD (C and then drag and drop all files to an external dirve, I may not complete clone the entire drive. Am I correct? 2. What is the best way to clone the internal SSD? Not sure if this is true or not. I recall reading that the Samsung Data Migration software does not work with OEM SSD. Is this true? The goal here is to clone the internal SSD to an external SSD. Install Linux to the computer along with Windows 10 as dual boot system. If something goes wrong, then clone everything from the external SSD back to the internal SSD to return the computer to that state just before I try to install Linux.

My lenovo c930 (not the smaller book model) did not power on last night. When i would press the power button the computer would make a stange noise, kind of sounded when a car will not power on when it has a dead battery. However, when i pluged in the charger it powered on. The battery was not dead as when the laptop powered on the battery was about 30 percent.. i just bought this laptop 17 days ago, this is quite fustrating.. The device seemed to have a couple bugs the first couple days of use but i didnt think much of it when it went away.. i hope lenovo can take care of the issue..

I bought my wife a Yoga C930 for Christmas. It worked fine for a couple weeks. Then it sat for a few days used and when she went to use it again yesterday, it would not turn on. It should be fully charged as it had been plugged in. When you push the power button, the LED turns on, but the computer does absolutely nothing. It does not boot, or even go to a post screen. The display does not turn on, the fans don't turn on.....nothing. If I hold the power button for about 10 seconds, the led will go out, and it will turn on if I press again, but the computer never boots.  Any suggestions?

I have a new Yoga C930 (purchased March of 2019).  Was using this morning, and everything was fine.  Before powering down, I checked for any available Windows Update - saw that there was a required update with a restart required.  Clicked on this, laptop began to reboot, and never powered back on.  I have tried to power down and turn back on, but the screen remains black.  The backlight keyboard does flicker intermittently, but nothing on the screen.   Any suggestions?  Appears (Premier) support is not availalbe on weekends. Thanks in advance!

This is ridiculous. I need support and Experts help. I have a brand new C930 Notebook. The laptop goes to sleep but does not wake up. Only the led light on the power button keeps blinking. I have to hard press to shut it down and then again press the power button after 10 seconds so the laptop would do normal boot. Then the Fingerprint reader does not work. The next restart works fine but from sleep still does not resume. I checked all settings on device maneger power managerment save mode and all available hardware resources are set to "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" checked. If i change the Device manager lid close action to Hibernate, it works as expected. So computer can resume fine with hibernate and not from Sleep mode. All my device drivers and BIOS is upto date to lenovo recommended versions. I have seen some online forums but nowhere it is known if it is a software issue or Hardware issue. Lenovo Please suggest!

Hi, I noticed that when I took the laptops out from a computer bag and immediately flipped them over into a tablet, the login screen showed up with a prompt to enter the password. However, virtual keyboard did not show up. I had to turn the laptps to laptop mode, entered the password and then flipped them back to tablet for the machines to function. This has happened to both my Yoga 730 15" 4K and Yoga C930 4K. Why? Perhaps it is not the virtual keyboard not showing up but the touch screens did not respond?

I bought my ThinkPad X1 Yoga for around $1600 CAD with 2 years on-site warranty. The Yoga C930 is usually around the same price or more expensive, but the yogadays promotion right now made the base model $200 cheaper even with 2 years on-site warranty. Would you guys say that at $200 cheaper, the Yoga C930 is worth it? It has dual fans and a bigger battery, those seem to be the main advantages.

I recently purchased the Yoga c930 to mainly draw on the go and do artwork in various apps and programs (mainly Photoshop, SketchBook, and Krita). However, this 2 in 1 is unable to download the wacom feel it driver ( I get a message saying that the wacom driver is not compatiable with the computer/tablet, which is wierd because the pen uses wacom aes technology) and I am having trouble with getting pressure sensitivity to work in almost everything I have tried to draw in. I even tried to change setting within the programs themselves, but the only one that really worked was Photoshop. Krita and Sketchbook still have no pressure sensitivity. There is also a Lenovo Pen Settings control panel for pressure sensitivity, but it does not really seem to make a difference in sensitivity when I change the settings there. Any suggestions as to how to get the pressure sensitivity to function properly on this computer would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to return the laptop and get the Yoga 720 13" becuase this computer is really nice otherwise, but I'm starting to think that may be the only option if I want to have a better drawing experience.

Hello everyone! So after going back and forth which laptop i wanted i finally ended up getting a Yoga C930 which feels MUCH better compared to the 730 i had for about a day. The only concern i have for it right now is the fan noise is noticeable. I updated all of the drivers and did all of the windows updates, but it seems the fan is much more audible compared to the 730 i had. (I used the windows app and Driver Easy to do this) It's not entirely annoying but i do notice it. I also notice the laptop tends to get a bit warm. I know its only been a few hours but still its something i've noticed.  This is the exact one i purchased from Best Buy I've also noticed the Dolby Atmos Speaker System app apparently isn't compatible with my device? Also looking if anyone has recommendations on which usb c dongle to use so I can connect extra USB, display, and memory card reader? Some of the ones I?ve found on amazon don?t exclusively list if it works on the yoga c930

I purchased a Lenovo Yoga c930 last week and it got delivered today. I have been experiencing issues with the sleep and power options. As soon as I click the button to eject the pen, the laptop goes into sleep mode where I have to sign in again. The situation gets worse because sometimes the laptop would shut down randomly when the pen is ejected out or it is inserted back into the laptop.

I have a brand-new Yoga C930 2-in-1 with a 1TB SSD and 16 GB RAM, which I'd like to run Ubuntu Linux on. I can't manage to boot from a USB (type A) pen drive yet, though. I managed to enter the BIOS (via this hint) and the "Boot from USB" option is "Enabled". When I exit the BIOS, though, saving the changes, having the USB pen drive plugged-in into the USB-A slot, Windows is booting up just normal. No USB boot happens, no boot menu is shown. Also, the usual pressing of buttons such as F2, F11, F12 or Del doesn't result in anything being shown from the BIOS. How do I boot from a USB drive then? Obviously, when there is a related option in the BIOS, it should be possible, shouldn't it?

Hello, I bought a lenovo yoga c930 laptop yesterday with a FHD screen (1920x1080p) and the first thing I noticed is that all images and videos seem to be a bit blurry and not sharp as would for a 1080p screen. I checked that the screen resolution is set to 1080p and I don't know what else to do, even logos on websites and normal small images you would normally pass by seem very annoying and disappointing to look at. I'm not sure how I'll even manage to watch videos on it (1080p videos definitely don't even look close to 1080).I hope there's something you can tell me to help with this as it is very upsetting where my 10 year old Toshiba laptop that has a way worse screen resolution specs but way better image and video quality.Thanks

Its set usb boot to enable .And ive turned off secure boot. Please help!

A:Yoga c930 unable to boot off USB

Hello and welcome,
 
If you're trying to boot in UEFI mode, your setup isn't correct.  I've never messed with enterprise before but to verify how it is installed (same as 10 non-enterprise) I just pulled down an eval ISO. Use a 64 bit ISO.
 
Use diskpart to configure your flash drive: select disk, clean, create partition primary, format fs=fat32 quick, assign.  Not NTFS, don't set it active.  Use your favorite archiving tool - the free 7zip or just Windows 10 Explorer - and extract the contents of the ISO to the flash drive.
 
BIOS can probably be at defaults.  Ssecure boot on or off doesn't matter.  Get to the boot menu (Fn + Power Button IIRC) and select the flash drive directly.  That should do it. Booted just fine on the first Lenovo laptop I tried.
 
[edit to add] Is this  a Yoga C930 or a Yoga Book C930?

They are about 30 bucks, but they come off with no sticky back and have prevented two serious scratches on my other computer, so I use it for protection.

Been going along fine. Updated a new battery f/w and was successful. Opted to installed OneKey Optimizer to calibrate the battery after the battery f/w update. However after install of OneKey Optimizer now I get a BSOD. I cannot restore from Acronis backups (externally), I cannot use the Win10 Repair PC option as every avenue takes me down the Bitlocker Recovery Key (to get going again) path. I didn't know this was enabled on a new PC and there's nothing about a key or password stored anywhere. Now it's a paperweight. I've seen similar when a system change is made with encryption running. There was a way to correct or change something in the UEFI/BIOS settings I thought. This was with another brand of PC though. Anyway to get past this even if I have to reset and lose everything?

I received this laptop as a replacememt of my defective yoga 720 the 18 October. After somw days of usage I can finally say that I ve got scammed by Lenovo, who sent me a testing unit with so mant problems! - Wacom pen and touch issues (such as ghosting and deas zones)- TouchPad gets disabled and became uselsss until next reboot. It also feels weird and it is kinda loose and imprecise! -KeyBoard acts weird and there is a noticeable input lag that I just can't stand since I am a programmer. -Hibernation/suspend/who knows who causes the impossibility to Wake up my laptop from sleep. When it happens I can only hard shut it down. - I've found some strange stats in the battery report that makes me think that I've received a testing unit with all of these malfunctionnality. My EMEA casw manager does no longee respond to my emails and I am willing to sens back this laptop and receive a refund or a new replacememt ( BUT NO MORE IDEAPAD LAPTOPS). If someone is contact with Lenovo I can send my case number. This is just unfair. Can't trust this Company. Check my YouTube Channel for the linked problems : https://youtu.be/5_daR-j7CQ8
