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 am looking for a caddy to replace the DVD drive of my V110. Are there any recommendations or things to watch out?I'd like to replace it with a SSD so that I can install OSX on the SSD and Win10 or Linux on the HDD. Once I bought such a caddy for my old Lenovo G560 but it froze right with BIOS startup.

A:Which caddy (HDD/SSD/DVD) for Lenovo V110-15IKB

I saw a smilar problem in Lenovo Z510. In order to solve the problem, caddy was removed and BIOS was restored to factory settings. After these changes, caddy with HDD could be installed again. AFAIK, there's no official caddy for your laptop. In Poland we have caddys from Zeta, which are quite good. I can't say what caddys are available in your country.

Hello, i just wanna know if it is possible to upgrade the Lenovo v110-15isk cpu and gpu. 

A:Lenovo V110-15isk CPU and GPU upgrade

In all modern laptops the CPU and GPU are soldered to the motherboard. It's called BGA socket. And to upgrade them you have to replace the whole motherboard with new CPU and GPU soldered to it.

I bought a Lenovo V110 15ISK 80TL Notebook in June 2018 and for the last 5 days, it shows me only hibernating in the middle of the screen and nothing else.

I have (or had) a new, working lenovo laptop. Everyting was normal but after downloading updates from its official  red lenovo app that was loaded in the computer, it said it needed to restart, black cmd appeared, it counted down from 5 to 0 and then nothing but a working fan, orange led light that shows the computer is charging and caps lock light. I remember before the update i closed num lock's light but now i can't open it. So I can say keyboard also doesn't work. I read some solutions by holding the power button for some time. Non of them worked, it just powers on and powers off. There is no light in the screen. I am confused and sad. I have an assingment 2 weeks later and have a brick in my hands that can cool itself. I mean how can a company wreck its own computer by updates? Please tell me it can be repaired and warranty covers it.

I have a Lenovo V110-15ISK where the power button does not appear to work, but if I remove and reinsert the power cable the laptop will open up the Novo Button Menu and I can boot to the hard drive from there - from that point the laptop will work fine.  Pressing the Novo button itself will not turn the laptop on. This is a work laptop so I have other laptops I can get spares from, so I've replaced the power button component, the cable, and the motherboard entirely, but the problem still persists.  Pressing the physical power button component while I had the case opened up also did not work, so I don't think it is anything to so with the plastic power button not connecting to the component. I've noticed that these Lenovos will not power on if they are sat on another Lenovo laptop (no idea why that is) so I'm wondering if whatever causes that effect could be affecting this one too, even though it is not stacked on another laptop. Any suggestions or advice gratefully received.

I just purchased a Lenovo Ideapad V110-15ISK with the intention of replacing the 500 gb hdd with a 480 gb ssd.  I used the Aoemei cloning software but it says the ssd is too small?  I haven't installed anything on the 500 gb hdd, I'm just going with it out of the box, so I thought cloneing to something 20 gb smaller shouldn't be an issue.  I made the Lenovo partician drive that's 24 gb smaller, to about 3 gb, and it cloned fine, but when I installed it back into the laptop, on start up I get a windows 10 boot error 0xc0000225.  I went ahead and made a boot usb and it boots, but then it wants me to install window 10 anew? I don't know what to do.  I love the laptop, I just want it running off of an ssd, and it should be simple, but I spent most of my Sunday on this and the anxiety is getting to me. I posted this a few min ago but the thread was gone a few min later, if this is improper formatting, please let me know and I'll make the changes, otherwise I'm just trying to get some help here.

I have done what is suggested on these pages:
 

Checked the devise driver
Checked settings
Downloaded driver for EasyCam from site for my laptop
Added an extra key to the register EnableFrameServerMode =0x0

Nothing works.
 
But starting Lenovo settings, it asked me to update it. Twice I've done that and it asks again to download updates.

Hi,Recently I decided to upgrade my laptop to a new SSD(default hard drive is a Western Digital 1TB). But I wanted to keep the default HDD as additional storage and for that i also bought a HDD caddy. I installed Windows 10 on my new ssd after replacing the old hdd with it and tried to connect the HDD through caddy in optical bay. And here all the problems started.1. Most of the time the PC stucks at the Lenovo sign when trying to boot with the HDD in the caddy2. If it boots (1 out of 10 times) the HDD is not recognized by windows3. However if I reinstall the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers driver, first time i restart the computer, the HDD works just fine, it's recognized and it's accessible. But after a new restart the  problems 1 and 2 are reoccuring.The BIOS sees the HDD connected.I tried lots of tutorials, steps, tools but nothing seems to work. The caddy was tested on another laptop with my HDD in it and it works just fine(so it's not a caddy problem neither an HDD one).I saw another similar topic here but it hasn't been updated since March 2018.Any clues on this? Is there any size limitiation for a caddy with HDD  in optical bay for this model? Is there any patch that can help with this problem? Any info would be really appreciated.

Hi guys, I enjoy using my v110-15isk laptop, but have some video card problems. I tried different ways but cant solve. I hope there are some suggestions here..  System: Lenovo v100-15ISK 80TL, Intel HD Graphics 520 (Onboard), AMD Radeon R5 M430Symthoms: Program crash when Autocad and Google Earth start. OS: I have dual boot on my laptop: Windows 10x64Bit V.1709 (Fall Creators Update) and Windows 7x64Bit.Both windows are updated but they have same problem. Additional info:1-When i set AMD disabled in BIOS, programs work normally but then system is in low video capability mode of course.2-When both video card are installed and i set Autocad on power saving mode in AMD settings then Autocad works but so slow. GoogleEarth does not start (in openGL mode) or start (in directX mode) without navigating world frame.3-I have tried different driver versions but no difference.4-I have tested hardware with Lenovo Diagnostics. It says others are OK but Intel HD520 test failed on "mathematichal operations test" (Program crashs and close). I think main problem is driver conflicts. But how will i solve it?

I would opt for using the old HDD as a USB external drive. Most "caddy" options do not work correctly in the Optical Drive Bay, there are quite a few threads that have extensive postings on problems with them.A USB hard drive external case is a cheaper option, one that will work with any USB enabled computer. This would allow for quick transport of files between computers and notebooks / tablets.Good luck.CB

I recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad 110-15ISK, Model 80UD0017US, and would like to purchase a 2nd power adapter as a backup.

In the hardware manual I did not see a reference as to the connector size (ie 4.0mm*1.7mm), which is the connector size reference I saw by one seller. Does anyone know the connector size on this power adapter for my model? Thanks,Kim

Hello everyone,I'm in desperate need for some help for this issue with my almost new Ideapad (model as in object). After the automatic Windows 10 1709 Fall Creators Update the laptop started to have problems in recognizing my Panasonic Hd Ready TV via HDMI (wich worked perfectly just before that). No error messages of any sort, it's just like the cable isn't plugged in (Win+P or other combos not working). I thought it could be related with video driver problems, so I ran the Lenovo System Update, which actually solved the problem, but just for a few days. Then it suddenly stopped working again (no other updates or software installation meanwhile). As the drivers as up to date, I obviously can't do any further upgrades. I tried the static discharge methot as well (the battery is built in, so I just kept the power button pressed for 30 seconds with the unit turning on and off repeatedly), but it didn't work for me (maybe I lost something in the process?).I would really be glad for any idea given, as I bought the laptop something like three months ago and, even if i format it (wich won't be a big issue), the Windows update will be reinstalled so the problem will probably show up again. Thanks in advance,Riccardo

Hello.  Got this laptop this past Christmas, unfortunately has never worked very well.  Since I bought it, it's had this problem where every time I close the laptop and reopen it, the task bar disappears and the trackpad is unuseable.  I have to manually restart it to get it to work again.  I disabled sleep mode and still this problem would occur.  Then suddenly the trackpad stopped working altogether.  I have to plug in a USB mouse to use this laptop now.  I updated all drivers (including trackpad) and still I cannot use the trackpad.  Windows 10 is also fully updated.  I did not change anything in the control panel so am not sure why it suddenly stopped working.  I am attaching a picture I took showing the problem.  This is after opening up the laptop, you can see the taskbar has disappeared and screen is incorrect resolution.Honestly, this laptop is very disappointing and I'm frustrated that I got it.  I have a newborn at home so spending time on this is really annoying/difficult.  I hope very much that there is an easy fix here.  Please help.  ThanksKC

Hi, I am having troubles with this notebook by installing a second HDD in those eBay caddies, the ones that are installed within the CD/DVD drive port. I have installed this kind of things in various other notebooks. The problem I am getting, is that the drive is recognized and can be used... but at terrible speeds. The performance on the second HDD is terrible. I installed an SSD where the original HDD was and the 1TB HDD included in the caddy, what most people tend to do and I am one of them. I made the exact same thing to another cheaper and older HP notebook using the same caddy (but 12.5mm rather than this 9.5mm) which is working as expected. After installing the caddy in the older notebook, I simply went to do the same thing to this one but without the expected results. I think that it has something to do with the max speed for the S-ATA, something I had to change in a HP 4530s in the BIOS some years ago. I changed the speed from 600MB/s to 300MB/s (or from S-ATA III to S-ATA II, not sure but same effect). The problem here is that the BIOS is extremely simple and there is no option to change anything like that.With this idea in mind, I tested an older HDD. It worked better, not perfect but better. With the 1TB original HDD I had speeds in the KB/s region, a really old USB flash drive is a lot faster than that. With the older 320GB I forced to install (since it is a little bulkier), I finally had speeds over 50MB/s. It is still slow but better than a USB 2... Read more

My laptop is pending on boot menu and whatever I choose among booting choices the same menu is opened again , the problem began after a BIOS update was suggested by the computer itself .

My ideapad 500-15isk is equiped whit a 128 GB SSd and has no optical drive.I'm wondering if i can place a HDD-Caddy and put a 1TB drive in it, since there is not an optical drive in this laptop.On the seller's homepage it says: The caddy comes with 1pcs flat Standard faceplate , and it is not an exact match. All buyers need to remove their optical drive's faceplate to attach onto caddy for proper working. Any other accessories like Mounting Bracket or ejector latch will not included. Please take it from optical drive to re-use.This is to get to get it to work properlyAlso, i read that some people have troubles to get the laptop to recognize the HDD Caddy.I really need to know for sure if it works before i order the caddy and the HDD.Anyone has any expierence with this option and specific laptop?Greetings,D.
