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.)

A:The YOGA S730 heats up

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.

If you formatted the hard drive, you most likely wiped out the recovery partition, so that's not an option. Did you format MBR or GPT?

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

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!

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.

I am sick and tired of this slow ass laptop I bought. It was supposed to be top notch with TB3. Using it on a TB3 dockingstation should be like a silky dream. After months and a lot of hours with updates, recoveries, re-installs, tips and tricks I now suspect I dont really have a computer with Thunderbolt port hardware or software or both. And that it never will work as the advert and specs say. In BIOS config: No TB/TB3. In Device Manager : No TB/TB3Docking and filetransfer via all USB-C ports is not close to TB3 speed. For a Thunderbolt port to work the computer would need a suitable Intel Thunderbolt port chip, the right BIOS and the right drivers. Can you Lenovo Professionals in here plese give me the port chip details, the bios details and the driver details for the claimed Thunderbolt ports? Lenovo Vantage say that all is good, but its not. While you're at it; Can you please let me know the proceedure for turning the computer back to Lenovo with cash in return, for promoting a product to be somthing its not?

Hi Everyone I really hope someone can assist. I am trying to get my SIM Card working in my X1 Yoga (UK Version). I have put in a Vodafone 4G Card, but the Laptop doesnt seem to recognise that I have installed anything (tried the obvious of rebooting, etc). I installed the SIM in a phone and it works immediately. I have established with Vodafone it is not the SIM Card, and they have set it up for Data use in a laptop. I have also attempted a number of times to install the Sierra software in the hope it will 'see' the SIM Card. The installation process goes all the way to the end, but then I cannot see any software on my laptop, even after rebooting. I must be doing something wrong. Can anyone help by sharing how they have set their SIM card up, or point me in the right direction on what I need to do? Would love to get this working. Thanks for any suggested ideas on what to do Marc

Bluetooth just disappeared from my system tonight.  There's no longer Bluetooth device settings, and it was always present and the Bluetooth button disappeared from the action center.    Note: This is the 3rd problem to self-create.  A windows update broke the touchpad and needed a bios reset.  Sunday night an update broke the audio driver and created the "no audio device installed error."  and required HD audio drivers to be downloaded and rerun.  Now, brand new tonight, Bluetooth just disappears.  The instability of automatic software updates is becoming a major problem.  This is the most unreliable new laptop I've ever owned.  It keeps self-breaking.  People shouldn't have to repair their systems after every update that is pushed out.   Also, 2 desktop.ini files just appeared on my desktop at about the same time the Bluetooth stopped and the setting disappeared.  They contain: [.ShellClassInfo][email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21769IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-183 [.ShellClassInfo][email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21799

Hi, I am attempting to install ubuntu 16.04 on my yoga 900. The bios can see the 512 gb samsung hard drive and so can Windows. The ubuntu installer can not see it at all. I believe this has to do with the sata mode on the bios. Unfortuneatly there is no option to change it from RAID to AHCI or disabled.
