I have a Lenovo y50. Just now i was trying to update my bios but during the process my system was stuck. Its been in this state for about an hour and i dont know what to do. kindly help me with this issue. I have uploaded the picture of the state in which my screen is stuck right now.

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, Lenovo team Can you please, add to your next BIOS update for Lenovo Y50-70 a fix, that my laptop won't lose CPU speed after i return my laptop from sleep mode. Right now i'm using BIOS version (3.03) There is no other way to fix this issue, only you can do it with a BIOS update for that model of laptop. Thank you.

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.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I can see that the machines disk activity stop after a few minutes. Keyboard responds so pc has not frozen but nothing happens. I have to power off the pc manually and next boot is fine. I can install the updates one at a time withour problems. My question
is how can I identify which update is causing the problem ? Which logs should I check and where should I look ?

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

I find myself pretty good with computers but my laptop is having an issue that I've never seen, had, or heard of before. 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.


i7 4790k cpu

gtx 750 ti gpu

ddr5 2400 memory

evga 850 g2 psu

Z97 gaming 5 mobo

Samsung 500gb SSD

1.5tb HDD (seagate I think)

windows 7 64bit home

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.

Thanks guys

Hey everyone, Recently, my Lenovo Y50-70 started acting up. All of a sudden, i could not connect to a WiFi network. Whenver i check devicemanager, i see this "other devices -> networkcontroller" which has a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it. So i figured... this must be the problem.  Now whenever i check properties on this device, i get alot of stuff that i dont even know what it means. But the path directory to this device should be (it says this in the properties) ..\Driver\ACPI.  I dont really know what to do now... should i just delete this device and reinstall? because i could not find any ACPI drivers for my device. If anyone could help me out, that'd be great. Since i can not stay connected to this ethernet cable for ever.I will respond to any messages, so if anyone tries to help me, we can find whats up. Thanks,Yves

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!

What OS (Operating System) are you using? To shutdown firefox, right click the taskbar & on the menu that pops up left click Start Task Manager & go to the Processes Tab,find firefox,highlight it & click End process. You might get a pop up asking you to confirm it,click yes & X out of Task Manager.
You need to install Malwarebytes on the harddrive. Once its installed, update it & run a (full) scan.

Dude does F2 or any other key defined by lenovo allow you get into BIOS?

The error code ur receiving is a corrupt boot sector, and it can be fixed by running startup recovery.

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.

Hey guys, I was doing the dishes with my laptop nearby and some water spilled on the keyboard, not too much though. The laptop was fine but maybe a few hours later some of the keys would make errors. For example when i press the 1 key the output is "`1" and i get the same output when i press the ` key. Many of my keys are doubled up like this such as five which outputs 54, and two which outputs f-two, and two. The computer is very tough to use in this state. I have been using it for quite a while since and just assumed its a hardware issue. Oddly, once in a while it will work for about ten minutes, then go back to being broken. Does anyone know how I can fix this?Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y50 keyboard issue

After water damage, it's best to let the computer sit for about 24-48 hours. Turning it on could cause more damage. If you can, try removing the keyboard and putting it in rice. If the keyboard still acts up after letting it sit, you'll need a keyboard replacement (which in this case means the upper case) Let me know if the keyboard still has issues after drying, and I'll find the correct part to replace fo ryou.

Hello everyone, I have the Lenovo G50-45 model, with 4gb of DDR3 (DDR3L exactly) ram and 1tb HHD and AMD Radeon R5 GPU. The issue is that I wanted to increase the ram to my laptop that had 4GB and buy an 8GB and investigate as I could which was compatible with mine at the end today, I bought the new Ram. but it does not work, It has two slots supports maximum 16gb 2x8gbAnd had to be DDR3L ? PC3-12800 ? CL = 11 ? 1600Mhz ? 1.35V And the one I purchased is:NO serie: KVR16LSE11/88GB DDR3L SO-DIMM ? PC3L-12800 ? 1600Mhz ? CL11 ? 1.35V ? 204-Pin ? ECC ? Dual Rank Please tell me if there are any problems that I am not fixing. Or that I am doing wrong. 1 test:Install the new Ram in slot # 2 and the old one stayed as usual in slot # 1Result: no video (started the fan but did not give bios or start anything black screen only) 2 Test:Install the new ram in slot # 1 only.Result: again did not give video like the first test. 3 Test:Place the old ram into slot # 2 only without the new one.Result: turned on as usual. And did not fail anything, everything normal.
