Finding the AUE for a Lenovo Chromebook

Q: Finding the AUE for a Lenovo Chromebook

Hello, I have a Lenovo 11e chromebook.I am trying to figure out the Auto Update Expiration for it. Normally, I can get this from https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=enIf you look through there, you can see there are a few mentions of Lenovo 11e with different date based on it's generation. How can I figure out its generation?Lenovo.com's warranty lookup says its model number is 20DU0003US and its warranty expired 2015-09-04. I have not been able to use that infromation to look this up. I have been looking at listings on Lenovo's site and Amazon for the various 11e's trying to compare them to what my model has: "Intel Celeron N2930 processor (1.83GHz)
4.0GB RAM
Google Chrome
11.6in 1366x768
Integrated HD Graphics
Bluetooth 4.0
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2X2 AC
4 Cell Lithium-Ion" I have not been able to find matches for any generation. It seems sorta close to 1st gen, but it is not the same.Any help would be appricated. Thank you.

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 just purchased my Lenovo N22-20 Chromebook from Amazon. However, I am having problems getting into Recovery Mode using the instructions published here https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1080595?hl=en-GB&source=genius-rts. When I press and hold esc + refresh, then press the power button (for about half a second)- it immediately shutsdown my chromebook, it doesn't go into recovery mode. I tried this sequence with the chromebook off and it does nothing. I tried the sequence before and after logging in too.  I also tried esc + refresh on it's own as some posts suggested just those two keys. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a different set of keystrokes that need to be used with a Lenovo N22-20? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Has any one out in ChromebookLand been able to use the acclaimed system to show picture full screen from sets of jpg files? Due to the puny memory capacity, and difficult to work with external SD card slot, I tried to connect a Sandisk Media drive. The Media drive connects very well, but the display operations of pictures is just not professional.  The keystrokes are quasi not functional or not present.  When giving the show, I need to waste time explaing the customer what to do, and the 'slides' are not full screen, but small.  The colors ARE GREAT, but that is about it. As an aisde, any one ever wonder why the letters are in lower case????  My 5 year old asked me.

Hello,I tried to make my chromebook into a Linux machine - but I fear that will not happen. I went through the entire process of removing the keyboard etc, and finally moved the switch. However, upon pressing the power button......nothing. Nothing with just the battery, nothing with just AC power, nothing at all. Can anyone point me in the right direction? is there something I missed? Or is this perfectly good laptop just dead weight now?Thanks.

Just something that we as a schoolboard found out about these devices, is that they use a magnet to sense when the lid is closed.  This issue that this causes is that if you have the devices stacked on top of each other that the magnet from the device below will stop the top one from turning on.  Some of our techs had them stacked while they were trying to enroll a large number of devices.  This is just an FYI.

Umm... Hello? Is this thing on? Okay, here it goes. I wanted to share my experiences so far with my new Lenovo C330 Chromebook. Let me start off first by saying, this is my first Chromebook. Previously, I had been using 64-bit Intel Core laptops that I ended up wiping Windows off of and installing some flavor of Linux or another. I am a one-click, out-of-the-box type of user, so distros such as Ubuntu and EndlessOS did me just right. As for the Lenovo Chromebook C330, I love it. Although the touch screen display isn't as sensitive as other touch screen displays I've used (it doesn't take too kindly to a capacitative stylus, the ones with the rubber nib, unless you press hard which means I guess I will just be using my finger after all *sigh*), and the SD card sticks way too far out of the slot, I can get used to these things.

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

My daughter's Chromebook has a dark screen.  It's like the lamp has been disconnected.  The machine is booting.  We have tried holding the power and restart key, to do a reset.  Still dark. I have held the power key down for two minutes.  Still dark. I have tried hitting the alt + brighten and darken keys.  Nothing. Hopefully they will honor the warranty or Walmart will take it back.   We've had it for about a month and it is still in warranty, according to the website.

A:help finding better charger lenovo v570

It's not a good idea to use a different manufacturer's adapter if you can help it. Why not lengthen the AC cord instead?

Here's a 12 foot AC cord that should fit your adapter:

800-18-39B-BL-0012F CNC Tech | 1175-1505-ND | DigiKey

They are available, and you might even be able to find one locally. I believe that Digi-Key has offices all over the place, so you should be able to order it from them and have it delivered to you.

I have PeoplePC as my dial-up ISP and as of late there have been problems that have been happening more and more frequently that have made my surfing experience very unfriendly.

Half the time I go to send an email using my Outlook Express there will be a delay of anywhere from 15 to 30 or more seconds while it says something about CONNECTING or FINDING host. Eventually... It will send the email.

Same thing when surfing. Sometimes I will click on a link and NOTHING will happen. No hourglass... absolutely nothing and then finally, the page will start to load in.

Now... It's not a case where the page is slow to load after it is found. It seems like my PC has all this damn searching to do to find the damn site. I am very frustrated over this.

Some would suggest that this is part of the reality of having a dial-up connection but I have had dial-up for over 7 years and have had nothing like this occur nor as often.

Does this sound like it's an ISP issue? Or my PC? especially the email issue where it waits for sometimes up to 45 seconds while it looks for the host.

Just wondering if changing my ISP will fix this?

Thanks in advance

DAVID

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi there.

I'm doing this thread to once & for all find the ultimate answers to my PC issues. Before i bought my Lenovo Yoga 8 laptop i was thinking of buying a Google Chromebook. Specs might not be as high-end as a Windows PC but it loads a lot faster (having no such apps or enough background process to load in the background), apps load a lot faster, updates come automatically (and no need to download/intall like a PC), straighforward OS and no complicated hundreds of settings to tinker with unlike a PC. And besides a Chromebook is virus and malware-free forever.

I also happen to come from a Macbook Air and i found my PC is that slow. Downloading & installing apps takes a lot longer, opening or closing an app or browser or tasks also takes longer. But in the course i have made some research to improve the speed & performance of my Windows 8.1 laptop mainly:

1. Turned off bluetooth
2. Set Windows Update to automatic
3. Updated Windows Defender
4. Defrafgging my hard drive monthly

5. Choose Selective Startup (under msconfig) and made sure no apps are enabled under Startup, selected apps are running under Services, choose a higher number under Processors and maximum memory set to at least half of what my Lenovo is capable of (under Boot)
6. Set performance to High Performance.

So, What else have i missed?
