Preferred Solution: Lenovo Y50 Update Issue

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: Lenovo Y50 Update Issue

Contact Lenovo. If you power it down, you can end up with a dead laptop.

Starting this morning, my Lenovo Yoga 910 IKB appears to go through a system update . It has been going on for quite some time, the update takes up to 30% of the CPU and my battery life has decreased substantially. In addition, it says that it is a Lenovo System Update(32 bit), while I know that my system runs on 64 bit. My questions are:1. How long should a system update take?2. Is it normal that the system update is 32 bit?3. If it is not normal, how do I stop the system update and how do I run a 64 bit one?Thank you!

Hello, For more than a year now, I have been using my Lenovo laptop without any problems (Model: 500-15ACZ Laptop (ideapad) Serial Number MP10L224 Machine Type Model 80K4001MUS with Windows 10-64Bits.) About 2 days ago, Windows 10 pushed an update. Since then, I have the following problem: whenever I boot the machine, it works fine for a couple of minutes and then, while working, the screen unexpectedly turns blank and the computer restarts without any warning. After restarting, the machine works fine for the rest of the day. This has already happened 2 times and, needless to say, it is worrysome to have a computer that can crash at any minute unexpectedly. Have any one been experiencing the same problem with this latest Windows 10 update? Would anyone have a solution? Thanks,BFonseca

A:Lenovo Ideapad 500-15ACZ restart issue - Windows 10 Dec. 2017 update

Is there anything reported in the Windows Even Logs when that happens?    Also check the C:\Windows folder for any recent MEMORY.DMP files that would indicate Widows is crashing (BSOD), and check for any updated drivers via Lenovo Companion, or manually from https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)IMPORTANT!!IMPORTANT!!Friends from Lenovo,Yesterday I did the update to the new version of Windows 10, called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or Windows 10, version 1709, and after the update was done I find out that the hotkey driver, that controls the Fn commands on the keyboard of my Lenovo ThinkPad X220, doesn`t work correctly with this new version of Windows 10. Therefore, I would like to know what can I do to fix this issue, so the hotkey commands work properly again in my notebook, or if it is going to be an update of this file (8jvu43ww.exe) that I could install in my notebook to fix this issue. Could you please tell me what can I do to make the Fn commands work properly with the new update of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) or if it is going to be an update of the hotkeys that is compatible with the new version of Windows 10?I look forward to hear your comments, and I hope you already have an idea, an answer to solve this issue. Yours truly,Cristián Palau

What is happening with Lenovo System Update? We are getting an error that the package catalog is being updated? We have several models here and its happening on all of them. I can't find anything relating to this update on any Lenovo site, and the response I got from calling support was "Sorry." They were also not able to tell me when they think this will be fixed. EDIT: Spelling.

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.

I posted the same on their tech support forum but I'm beginning to think the issue, while it may have been exacerbated by the game Guildwars 2, is likely on my end, but I have a number of suggestions, none of which has worked. Also tried my own stuff.
 
Anyway, here is what I posted on their own tech forum:
------
 
Having a lot of issues getting into gw2…I have bits and pieces of problems others have had in the past, but nothing seems to work, so I’m re-downloading the game, basically. All I want to do is play the freaking game, why does it have to be so much trouble?
 
 
Once in awhile I will get that blue and yellow graphical glitch on something. Just more info for diagnosis. If and when this happens, it’s always immediately apparent at character select. However…The biggest problem I have with GW2 is also on login – it either crashes or bluescreens my computer right after clicking play and the client tries to load for 5-10 seconds. For the past few days, 90% of the time it just crashes. If I try to patch after that point, the patcher stops at Downloading 0KB and will not budge from it. Not even to log in. I have to reboot my computer to get it past “Downloading 0KB”.
 
 
One post I found said that they started having all these problems after downloading a number of games on Steam (which I have done off and on due to a friend getting me a few gifts) , until their HD shrank down to 30 gigs. Same here, an... Read more

A:Odd memory issue? HD space issue? Also, can't update GPU driver (GW2 crashing)

Unfortunately, though I thought I did, I have no images of the odd cyan/yellow graphics glitch, and I have no way of getting one (google didn't turn up any that looked the same as mine, granted some were similar).
 
Edit - I also noticed after re-enabling page memory on my primary drive after freeing up some space, that in the error logs, the amount of paged memory in use is for some reason higher. I can't imagine why this is, but maybe I don't understand the process.

Window 7 x64 pc with Avast virus
 
Notice the issue yesterday, not sure how long it might have been affecting Firefox.
 
Yesterday, Avast could no longer access server to update.  Went to Avast website to manually download virus file.  Said it was up to date.  After two days, I highly doubt it is still upto date.  Tried downloading a fresh copy of the software and reinstalling.  No change.
 
Now I just noticed Firefox also can not access anything and when I try to update it, it says it is up to date.  I have version 22.00, not the current 23.  Don't know how long it has been blocked from updating.  Didn't find anything to improve the problem in thier troubled shooting area.  Tried downloading new copy of Firefox..... and download failed.
 
Two days ago, I downloaded a Windows update, classified as Critical.
 
I do have another computer running on the same internet connection.  It appears to be fine and has to current Firefox version.
 
Is this a virus or a result of the Window's update?
 
Thanks for your help!

A:Avast and Firefox update blocked, virus or Window Update issue?

I forgot to say, Internet Explorer and other programs are working just fine.  No issues accessing anything on the internet.  The only problems,  appear to be Firefox and Avast unable to connect to server.

And it's something I couldn't find a solution for online at allI own a Lenovo Y50-70 (2016, specs at bottoms) I bought it refurbished with a 1 year warranty almost a year ago on the dot. Saturday night it bassicly ate the dustWhen I power the laptop on, the keyboard light starts up, the power and low battery light work. But nothing else. The fans don't start working either until about 20 seconds after pressing the power. USB items (my mechanical keyboard and mouse) don't receive any power. I tested with an external monitor to see if the display was dead and it didn't even post to the monitor I tried disconnecting the battery and nothing changed with it plugged in, I did a 10second reset with no battery. I have tried checking the fans and making sure nothing came unplugged under the hood and couldn't find anything wrong Another thing, when I unplug it it makes this awful beep noise (single)If anyone has a suggestion or a known fix PLEASE tell me, I'm a high school student that just spent all their savings on a car which I still need to register.

Hi, I have recently just got done building my computer. Did the hardware, pretty much all the software till all I had to do was install 231 important windows updates. So I aloud it and it took a good hr to install it all.. than the computer shuts down and I turn it back on, than it goes into configure the updates mode.. 20 minutes later it says failed windows updates and is now reverting back.. and not in those exact words.

When I was finally able to get out of the revert update screen which took about 30-40 minutes everything seemed normal, till I opened the update history screen and showed about 95% of the updates failed. I also noticed that it had installed the updates on my HDD which is my D: storage but should have installed it on my C: SSD storage. Now I need to figure out how to get rid of that locked folder on my HDD and place all the windows updates on my SSD.

evga 850 g2 psu

I've been searching around to see if there was a fix but a lot of people have had a really hard time with this issue and seems to be so many people unable to fix it.. I'll be turning off windows update till I figure this out.

A:Lenovo G50-70 RAM Upgrading issue

hi qaimkhan,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to verify, the Kingston 4GB (PC3-12800 CL11) 1600Mhz that you purchased, is it a DDR3L (1.35v) or a regular DDR3 (1.5v)?
 
Looking at the page 28 of the hardware maintenance manual, the G50 series specifically accepts a DDR3L RAM and the memory controller only supports DDR3L. If you purchased a regular DDR3 (1.5v), this might be the problem.

I really don't want to use this (No gestures, I can't even scroll, pan, or zoom with it, can't fix this in the settings either), is there anyway I can switch the drivers used. I tried uninstalling ALPS drivers and installing Synaptics with no success. Please Help!!!

Hi, my laptop (Lenovo G405) has this issue:

Frequently it doesn't boot the operating system, i turn it on and then a black screen appears and it gets frozen there, when it boots to windows it gets frozen so i have to restart it to get the same problem, i have seen that when i remove the battery and put it again it works but its not a definitive solution because it goes to the same problem again.

I removed the HDD to boot my laptop with Ubuntu (USB) and it works better than with HDD but still i get that problem but way less than when I boot it with my HDD, atleast i can use Ubuntu with no problems until i want to restart the computer.

What is happening? Is that a sign that the motherboard is going to be totally damaged? by the way befre i got that problem, i got BSODs with the message THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

I firstly thought it was malware so i formatted my PC and reinstalled Windows 10, still doesnt work, gee it works worse when i reinstalled it than before i reinstalled it.

It may be an HDD issue but I don't understand why using USB I get the same issue (not as bad as with HDD but still annoying).

What should I do? Get my motherboard repaired? Get a new motherboard? Get a new laptop? or what else should I do? and by the way what is causing the problem and why?

By the way if I can change the motherboard can i put a more powerful one? Later Lenovo G405 models.

Thank you for your answers and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi, I just bought this laptop about two weeks ago. I was working with it, I closed it so it turned on "standby" mode, and then when I reopened it the touchpad wasn't working anymore. I tried to reinstall the drivers both from the main folder on the pc and from the support site, but it still doesn't work. What could I do? It seems that the pc doesn't recognise the touchpad anymore because when I go in the ELAN properties of the touchpad the program doesn't see it. Help me please, thanks.

Hey Lenovo, I recently bought a G51-35 and noticed a problem with posterization, otherwise known as color banding or the absence of dithering. My googlefu has come up with various ideas on fixing the issue, such as updating the Radeon R5 drivers, recalibrating the display, and using the Lenovo Settings to tweak the color settings -- all to no avail.  I began to think it was a problem with the screen being unable to produce 32bit colors, so I hooked it up to an external monitor that does show 32bit. The problem persists over to the other screen, so I don't believe it to be the laptop screen. Another thread from last year on this forum said the solution was to adjust the angle of the monitor, but in practice, this doesn't fix the problem; if anything, it worsens it. This narrows it down to the BIOS configuration or driver issues.  At this point, I can't think of anything else to try and resolve the issue. Any ideas? Because of the posterization, I can't reliably use the computer for any form of graphic design, which is part of the reason I bought it. My gut is telling me that dithering is disabled somewhere in the BIOS config, but I have no idea how to enable it. Any insight into checking this would be nice. Any help would be appreciated, thanks! EDIT: Not sure why this posted in the wrong forum, might need moved by a moderator.

My Lenovo Y50-70 (Core i7-4720HQ, 8GB RAM, GTX 960M). Would sometimes randomly shut off. Like as I open it, it would freeze, and then I hear a small pop and my laptop shuts off. It would normally turn on and fully load everything after around 20 seconds. But after shutting off; as I try to open it again. it would be MUCH MUCH longer. And performance also seems to be slowed. I updated everything I can, but left the Bios out. After a friend told me about it. I tried to update it too. But even after updating it. it would still randomly shut off. What do I have to do to fix it? Overheating is not an issue, because even when the instance of opening my laptop is DONE. it still shuts off. And after playing CS:GO, Dark Souls 3, or Overwatch after a while. It wouldn't shut off.
