Q: Lenovo Ideapad 720s-14IKB : Wireless Card

I'm planning to buy this laptop: http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/ideapad-700-series/Lenovo-IdeaPad-720S-14IKB/p/80XC0047... But the Wireless on this laptop is 1x1. I wanted to know if I could replace that card with a faster Intel 8265 card.

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 bought the Ideapad 720S-14IKB about two weeks ago, and I am really really happy about it. The only thing that is bothering me, is that the fans on this machine cycle a lot. Like, for a while they make basically no noise, until they suddenly ramp up to the max for a short period before they go back to being practically silent. They're not even that loud in general, it's just that they are pulsating a lot, and that makes the noise so much more noticeable. I really would like to see a BIOS update or driver update or something that makes the fan cycling a bit smoother. Is there any chance of this actually happening in the near future?

Hello everyone, At a random time, when the cursor changes from "normal" to "working in background" it becomes pixelated and jumps away a few centimeters and then returns back to original position when loading is complete.The only way to work around this is if I make a change in mouse settings, like "enable pointer shadow" and then revert it back as it was. I am on an Ideapad 720s 14IKB running Windows 10 x64 Version 10.0 Build 16299 Is anyone else having the same issue?

Hello, I am posting on behalf of my mom. Similar to some complaints of the Yoga Series her IdeaPad 720s screen is beginning to separate from the panel. Because I seldom ever use her laptop I've not really noticed. While trying to figure out an issue shes been having with some work software (electronic health records), I noticed that the bottom of the panel (in between the rubber seal and hinge area) is slightly exposed and is showing some of the innards of the laptop. She doesn't have the greatest eye sight, so she hasn't noticed. Is anyone else having these issues? Is there a fix or am I going to have to RMA the unit? She's only had the unit for about a month and a half.

Hi.About half a year ago, I bought the Lenovo ideapad 720S-14IKB. Since day 1, I noticed this problem where the mouse becomes invincible for a few seconds after I open a new tab in the webbrowser or start a new program. Here is a video of it: https://i.imgur.com/FSR05gs.mp4 Futhermore, after installing the latest BIOS update (4VCN41WW), the laptop has started to freeze for a couple of seconds on me every once in a while.  Are these, things that can be fixed by myself? Or should i talk to the store where i bought it about sending it to repair? I live in Denmark, so I have 2 years warrenty.

Hi, I ordered an IdeaPad 720S - 14IKB on the 15/09. I was especially enticed considering it said that it shipped within 1-2 business days and I needed it asap for college. It's been almost 10 days, and my order still says "In Process". The money has been removed from my account, I received an email saying it would ship in 1-3 days. Nothing progressed so I rang support on the 21/09, and was told there was a delay with this model (no details on what about), I was told I'd receive an email with an estimated shipping date the next day, but I got nothing. I also reported that there was an error in my shipping address, and that the billing address was more accurate so as to not confuse the courier. I rang again yesterday (25/09) and was told they would send the message on to request the shipping address be changed to the billing, and I would also be given an update on my order status before 6pm today and the guy apologised that I wasn't getting any relay of my laptop. I feel like I'm being runaround here and would appreciate if some staff online would be able to give me some help, since the people on the phone aren't doing anything at all. I understand companies being iffy about altering shipping address, it's a very small error, where I accidently put my workplace on to my residential address when it's actually in a different town. Any help is appreciated.Thanks

My graphics card or driver is stopped by windows (code 43) after fall creators update and bios update from lenovo website (lenovo service bridge). It was perfectly fine before and now i have uninstalled my graphics driver and have tried to reinstall several times but it has always failed. I tried to install the driver i got from lenovo website and the nvidia website but neither worked. The bios update is this BIOS Update for Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8 (64-bit), Windows 10 (64-bit) - Notebook3JCN29WW2017/06/07I don't know what went wrong because both the fall creators update and bios went well.

Hi guys.So i bought an Lenovo ideapad 720s about a month ago, and since i got it i have been realy bothered by the fact that it is not leveled. It seems like the bottom left corner and the top right is higer then the two other corners. So everytime i lay my hand down to type i can clearly feel the bump caused by the lack of contact with the table. I have tried to bend the base of the laptop to fix it, but it dosent work. The problem might even be that the whole base is not flat, im not sure.Dont know what to do about this, and i really dont feel like sending my laptop to a service senter as it would take quite a while before i would get it back. But if that is the only option i guess i just have to. All sugestions apreciatedThanks in advance

If I ping my router, I also noticed that there is a high latency which varies loads, never really going below 3ms, but sometime dropping a ping and often going up to 20 - 40ms +! I have tested the laptop on 2.4 and 5 GHz bands and the situation is the same. I have also tried a different Access Point, but the problem persists. My old 7 year old Dell XPS15 does not exibity this problem. I have updated the WiFI Driver (Atheros QCA9377) to the latest on the Lenovo Website, it shows as 12.0.0.295. I have also set the Power plan to max performance on the WiFi apapter. Any help with this problem would be appreciated, Thanks -Ben

Hello, So I am experiencing an isue with my Ideapad 720s. After starting my computer, I am able to plug in headphones to the 3.5mm jack and hear audio just fine. When I unplug the heapphones the sound will com through just fin but if I try to plug in headphones again no sound will come through them. The sound stops coming out of the speakers when headphones are plugged in and resumes when I unplug the headphones but no sound comes out of the headphones. The only way I have found to resolve this is restarting my computer which allows headphones to work the first time plugged in after a restart. As you can imagine this gets very annoying having to restart my computer every time I want to plug in headphones. I have clean installed the mst recent audio driver from lenovo but the issue persists. Any ideas? Thanks so much,Ken

Do you know when the ideapad 720s (with 8th gen cpu) with the GeForce mx150 will be released in the UK (if at all)?I can see it on several european websites and also on the US store but I cannot see it on the UK store. I have tried to contact sales through chat but they are unsure. I need to buy a laptop soon and dont know whether to buy the older version with the 940mx, or wait for the newer version with the mx150 (which is what I would rather do, hopefully before black friday sales) but that would depend on the release date.Would appreciate if someone from lenovo could give me a specific date?Thanks in advance
