Q: Lenovo not providing Support for Y50. How do I com...

Hi, I brought Lenovo Y50 last feb with accidentl protection plan for a year. Then I had a problem with my laptop and I contacted them and I am busy person they wasted more then 2 hours with remote login and still problem persisted, then they said they will send In-Home person and that In-Home person came after almost 2 months at point when I even forgot I called them. Then he changed parts more problem arised, contacted them again now during my busy day they contacted me and asked me to do remote login but I can't as I needed my laptop for use at that point then they marked It as a solved problem even though it wasn't. I thought of extending warranty as problem was not solved and I was expecting that there might be more problem but they don't provide my extended warranty as I had issues, though they did not solve it. Now my laptop is acting weird, I see different error, game crash, ram currupted, and when I tried to contact them on their business hours which they specifically says that they are available for call on sarturday from morning 10:00 to evening 5:00 EST I contacted them but it says they are not available currently. I tried chat support though the don't have techinal chat but guess what they have 24/7 chat support for SALES. I tried someway found that I can chat with them atleast give it a try. I was 17th in a queue, it told me ETA was aroung 20 mins so it means that they still have agents taking request. when I was 1st in queue ETA started acting different it went to 20mins from 6 and then i waited more than an hour and finally they said to me that there are no agents available and said to me try to contact email support but guess what, LENOVO doesn't have email support in UNITED STATES. So today morning which is monday morning, I gave call to customer support and they when I said my problem to them, that lady just said to me that this is after sale department and not technical department. let me forward you to technical department, I knew she was going to hang up and did not want to solve my problem. she told me incase phone gets disconnected what will be best number to call. which rang a bell that they are going to hung up, just pretending that they care. After 30-40 mins or so they hung up and still no one contacted me. This is how they treat there customers who even paid for warranty, doen't get any solution. are they going to solve a problem or not. so here I am complaining about them in this forum incase they even try to solve problem for customers.

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.)

I have an Asus A8N-E mobo which has optical and coax outputs for 5.1 sound and an nForce4 chipset. I just got a set of Logitech Z-5500 5.1 speakers and couldn't get them to receive a signal from either digital output from my mobo. They worked if I hooked them up to the direct outputs, but not the digital.

I called Asus and they told me to install the Realtek sound drivers instead of the nForce4 sound drivers which I was using. So I did. Now both the optical and coax jacks on my mobo output sound (and with quite a bit more volume than the direct hookups), but the sound quality in some games (Half-Life 2, Galactic Civilizations 2) is noticably choppier. However, the biggest disappointment came when I fired up Battlefield 2. When I actually get into the game the sound is absolutely awful. None of the sounds I hear coming from the speakers is representative of anything that's happening on my screen. It's horribly loud, and the same sounds keep looping over and over again. When I press ESC to quit the game my pc actually crashes to a blue screen of death (which has never happend once in all of my years of using XP Pro) which tells me that "ati2dvag" is causing the problem and the driver is stuck in an infinite loop. What fun!

I'm not really concerned about fixing this problem with the Realtek driver because I'm not happy with its performance in games that actually work, and I can always switch back to the nForce4 driver and use the direct input... Read more

A:Sound driver providing 5.1 support is causing system instability. Is there a fix?

Good Evening Stinky, that really is technically "up there " stuff you have.
I got a headache just reading about it! The AI system is real space age stuff.

I did see a set of Nvidia drivers at http://www.short-media.com/download.php?dc=61
but I haven't played with 64 bit stuff with my TRS80 or 286 up to this point so wouldn't know.
As you mention the realtek drivers seem to be the most mentioned but I wouldn't be surprised if you have problems getting those drivers out. 30megs sounds like complicated drivers. Better you than me "gunga-din"!
Sorry no help.

New Yoga 700-141SK: Ran the Lenovo Support Center Hardware Scan and the Video Card Mathematical Operations Test has failed rendering the Report: WVC007002-UL7BPL. 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 is reasonable to expect Lenovo to make available a solution as a matter of course instead of end-users of "afflicted" Lenovo devices having to request/search for a solution(s).

A few weeks ago I saw the Lenovo K430 on NewEgg while shopping for a new Desktop. I was amazed by the K430?s features and great looks. However, after doing some research I became very baffled about the Power Turbo Switch and the many horror stories about upgrading the graphics card. I called Lenovo Technical Support to talk about possibilities and get advice about the graphics card, a woman answered the phone and informed me she had no idea or information about graphics card; but she recommended I speak to Sales. I was transferred to sales and they too informed me that they knew nothing about the computer or graphics card. I decided to call B&H Photo, the name sounds deceiving but they really are the best with support. The Technical Support told me if I really wanted a great computer I should think about building my own. So today, I embarked on the journey to build my own computer and I want to say thank you to Lenovo. If it wasn?t for Lenovo's extremely bad Tech Support and Sales I would not have built my own computer. Lenovo you are so terrible and clueless, you have inspired me, you have driven me by showing me your lack of knowledge and sense of awareness, the idea that a company has a sales and tech department that knows absolutely nothing about their own product. Thank you Lenovo, you are simply the worse PC maker on the Planet! Thanks to you; today I have the most powerful computer I could ever imagined. The only Tech Support Leno provi... Read more

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price." I inquired about the status of the original repairs, they told me the claim was on hold, pending my review and... Read more

So I purchased a new T470s in December. After a few months, started having intermitent wi-fi, keyboard, and WWAN issues. Created support ticket was relatively easy. Spent an hour on the phone and got the RMA. Thought to myself that was easy. Next day box showed up to ship laptop back. Told me I'd have it back in 7 days.  Seven days later I go online and see it's listed as "Waiting on Customer". No big deal I thought, I'll call and straighten it out. After spending a total of 6 hours over the next 7 days trying to get in touch with someone at the Depot (an impossible task so I quickly learned), finally spoke a person. He asked me some more questions, and released the laptop from hold. A few days later I see that it is now in parts hold. Ok, I'm still patient, after several more days, we are now a long way off from seven days I originally was told. I'm still optimistic and wait it out. Finally on May 2nd my laptop showed up. It said it had a new keyboard, main board, and wifi module. I was thankful it was fixed, or so I've thought. Jump to two days later, and my wi-fi and WWAN are still intermittent at best. Running continuous pings to google and my wifi AP I have one time out from every four pings, which is enough to throughly anger Google Chrome and dramitcally kills any download speeds. So now I am torn, do I invest another month, and 10 plus hours of phone time for another repair, or do I bite the bullet and buy a new HP and count the Lenovo as a lesson learn...

Lenovo,I got a new X1 Carbon last year - 16GB RAM & i7. Worked great but occasional BSOD. Finally caught an error in a RAM test and the system automatically opened a ticket for repair (Nice!). A week later motherboard sent, nice repair guy comes and replaces it. RAM checks clean but the next day I realise the camera no longer works. Update the ticket. A week later, they send a new camera and the guy comes back to replace the camera. No change - no camera. Update the ticket - this time they send a new motherboard. Nice guy comes back a week later and replaces the motherboard. Camera works again. Yeay! But now it is crazy slow. Turns out the new motherboard is an i5 with 4GB of RAM. Running Windows 10 means this is pretty much unusable. Nice guy says he will order me a new motherboard with the right part number. 2 days later he calls me back. They sent another i5 w/ 4GB of RAM. He will update the ticket. 3 days later, different nice guy comes out with the new part. Checks it out before installing it - i5 w/ 4GB of RAM. I am now waiting for my 6th visit and I have had an unusable laptop for over a month. Seriously, all the people I have been dealing with have been great but why is it so hard to just send the right part? PLEASE - How do we make this all go away so i can get back to enjoying my laptop? Thank youDavid.

HiI filled-in a support request 2016-09-29, I got an automated response and then a day later I got a reply requesting more information with the case marked "Solved".Well:1) The web form has two fields to describe the problem, but both are limited to 255 characters. Hardly enough write a couple of sentences, let alone describe a complex computer problem. But as I had already descried the problem here on the forum I included a link!2) The reply I got said "Can you please respond to this email with more details on the fault you are having?" and showed the case marked as "Solved"! I find this level of stupidity insulting.3) Anyway,  the email says I can reply within seven days to reopen the case, so I replied to say I didn't know more details other than those in the linked post and that I would like to know why the support fields are limited to 255 characters.  Since then, and despite two email follow-ups, I have had NO RESPONSE. So what am I meant to do? Is this typical of Lenovo Support? Cheers

Hello, First of all - I am angry and I will not hide this. Polish Lenovo 3rd party support actually makes me sick of whole company, below, short story how Lenovo brand from "recommending to everyone" turned into "do not recommend at any circumstances".  I bought a Yoga 910, paid in poland 6700 PLN which after currency exchange to USD is almost $2000. Reason for this was mainly - I trusted that if I buy it, OOBE will be great for years. Turned, I was totaly wrong.  Few days after I bought this laptop, my screen started leaking pixels, on bottom right side, there were leaked pixels to the point that after long usage, especially under charger, whole right side of the screen had big color lines, right where taskbar icons were. I have send this laptop to RMA, after a week I got it back and here the extreme disappointment begins: - Screen rotation sensors were dead- Tablet mode was dead, keyboard was normally working when I tried to use it as a tablet- Hinge connecting screen and body is loose, half of the elements move, in short - in terrible state I have sent is again to RMA as service complaint stating all of above. What have support done: - Fixed sensors- Didn't fix the hinge, it is in even worse condition now- Laptop body was dirty, I had to clean up some weird red fluid from it- Camera is broken to the state that hardware managment shows it as a simple PC Camera with hardware ID of..... an chinese USB stick.

Hi, I have few issues with my Lenovo Yoga X1 and I want to contact support directly by opening support ticket describing my problems. Does Lenovo have support at all or we are left with these forums only?I have many issues like:- Integrated SIM data access card is very often not working and sometimes I need to wait for it for 20-30 minutes to "start up" until I can use my mobile internet- When I first bought my laptop I had an option for automatic keyboard backlight (laptop detects environment and sets it accordingly). That option is gone now and I cannot enable it anywhere.- Sometimes my fingerprint sensor data somehow gets reset and I have to do it all over again (set it up, etc.). As if BIOS is reset to factory settings on it's own- When I connect to my laptop using RDP  Wacom ISD Service starts killing my CPU and only way to get rid of it is to stop the service (which affects digitizer then)- Battery lasts around 5 hours at best even on power saving mode- Intel bluetooth driver cannot install. I tried more than once and it fails each time (using Lenovo companion).  I have all the latest drivers and BIOS firmware installed. Also all the Windows updates are installed.

Hello Lenovo Support! Can the linux users of this laptop get some love, please? In my case I only need the ability to update my BIOS from liveusb, an .ISO would be perfectly fine. I don't mind all the broken ACPI tables, BIOS updates, deleting all my efivars and some entries, I'll fix them myself, but I do mind, having to dualboot Windows, so just an ISO would be great. Lastly and most importantly can we also get the option to enable VT-d in the BIOS? Both MB and CPU supports it.

My Lenovo Yoga 900 has a cracked screen. I called Lenovo and the rep that I talked to told me they don't do repairs and told me to take it back to Best Buy or to another computer repair tech to have it repaired.   Best Buy said they couldn't replace the glass and neither could the tech that I took it to. This seems absurd.  Why would anyone pay over $1200 dollars for a laptop that can't be repaired if needed?  I'm at a loss, I don't know what to do and I want it fixed.  Does anyone have any suggestions? I just find it very hard to believe that Lenovo won't repair their own merchandise.

Who did you call?  If you have a nearby Lenovo Premier dealer near you, you might carry it in.  It certainly can be replaced.  (It might be expensive.) The manual indicates that the entire assembly (hinges, lid, etc.) are replaced as a unit, but I'm sure it can be taken apart, but I I have never done so I cannot describe it.  I have done similar models and they took less than 1/2 hour.  My guess is that it simply snaps together, but as I said, I haven't done it so I don't really know.

What is Lenovo support made of, exactly? My company has bought a Thinkpad T430 from them at a good price, and there is warranty on the device for another 6 months or so. There is a software quality issue with the touchpad driver that really kills it for me, and I would like to first bring this to Lenovos attention and at least get some sort of acknowledgement from their representative to the fact that the issue exists, and also to get their response and help with it. I hit the Support link, and there is nothing there like a chat or support request links. I tried Contact Us, and at the following page, where one of the items for some strange reason is in Italian, and another is in Norwegian, even though I have explicitly configured English as language, and everything else is in English as well. ?Does Lenovo actually have any support? I mean as in real support, not automated knowledge base, where I could not find the issue mentioned above, after looking through a list of more than one hundred entries. How do I initiate some sort of support related conversation with some Lenovo people? Is it not completely appalling how you buy advertised laptop worth hundreds of dollars, that includes tens of distinct hardware components and also tens of software components (if not hundreds) and there is no *actual* support for the item?

Hallo,

After 3 days of frustration with the Lenova support hotline I'm failing trying to solve my BSOD problem myself. Only trouble is that I cannot get the Laptop to boot at all, either in normal mode or safe mode. Thus I cannot get the information required from the http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ns-452654.html thread.

So this is what I know:

? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? new install
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
Actually it's a upgrade installed on a fresh hard drive (my mistake as I originally formated the XP off)
? Age of system (hardware) - bought june 2010
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? no - not yet.
? CPU - i7 Q720
? Video Card - nVidia
? MotherBoard - dont know
? Power Supply - brand & wattage - Standard lenova power supply
The hardware has been tested and is running correctly in all tests sofar.

However I cannot boot the machine.
1) Normal boot - lasts about 3 secs of the windows loading screen before coming.

A:Help providing my BSOD info

Sorry, but there is not a lot we can do to help you. There is obviously something seriously wrong with the hardware of your laptop.

My advice is to contact Lenovo again and don't take "No" for an answer until they are willing to replace your laptop; it should not be acting up like that.

If you want to back up your data, try this method:

Quote:




One way of backing up data is via Ubuntu. Ubuntu is completely free, and has the advantage that it can be run off a USB stick or a CD - saving you having to install it on your hard drive.

You can get it from here: Download | Ubuntu

Step #2 on that page shows you how to create the USB/CD.

Once you get it running - copy the data from your hard drive to an external drive. Do not copy to the Ubuntu drive as the data will not be saved on shutdown.

W7, sp1, no hotfixes, x64, hidden (or super) Admin. account

I'm getting this error;
Windows is not providing a valid folder name for the "Common Desktop" folder. I tried several searches, but it's such a odd error message. I could see a message that it couldn't find a folder, but not providing a proper name?

The program that is giving me the error is ThumbsPlus V8. I have installed at least 25 other programs prior to this error with little issue (other than it's W7). I un-installed V8 and installed V7 of the same program with no error.

Any guess what that error message is suppose to mean?

A:Not providing a valid folder name

Ask on the ThumbsPlus support site.

For those of you who have tried out the Windows 10 Technical Preview (either computer or phone), how have you reported your feedback or bugs/issues to Microsoft?I'm genuinely interested as, despite the apparently large number of users downloading the preview, there doesn't seem to be much activity in the Insider forum.I also wonder whether most people just download it and try it out for a bit without actually providing any feedback or reporting bugs.What's been your experience?

A:Providing Feedback on Windows 10

Yah we try to ive feedback and report bugs.
They gonna collect the info anyway so I let it go after a while.
Then I threw in the towel and reverted back to 7.
Prolly keep 7 long after end-of-life.
We gettin hitched tomorrow...lol
