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.)

Dear Lenovo Staff,I'm experiencing multiple issues running Ubuntu on Lenovo Y700-17ISK laptop:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/Problems-running-Ubuntu-on-Lenovo-Y700-17ISK/td-p/3278... At the end, I installed Windows 10 alongside with Ubuntu 16.04 only because of BIOS updating.During the last month or two, it was impossible to find any BIOS file on 'Y700-17ISK Laptop - Lenovo Support' web page.Today I finally found a new BIOS update file: Released 7/18/2016, Version CDCN35WW. But when - hoping to solve problems running Ubuntu on Lenovo Y700 - I attempted to install this latest BIOS update file through Windows 10, I got the following error message: "the version of ROM file is the same as that of BIOS". And then I found this forum post (05-18-2016):"Please be advised that Lenovo is in the process of removing the BIOS CDCN35WW for ideapad Y700-15ISK, Y700 Touch-15ISK, and Y700-17ISK laptops in response to customer reports that the software does not execute as expected. Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW or a newer version of the BIOS will be made available". Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW version of the BIOS will be made available again????????So I downgraded my BIOS CDCN35WW to BIOS CDCN30WW, and after that I installed again BIOS CDCN35WW - everything went well, but now my BIOS shows it is CDCN30WW version??? I would be very grateful for any help, thanks in advance.

Hi! As one of those who had thought to upgrade my Lenovo y700 I've bought only 256gb SSD version. I've found a lot helpful information on this forum about installing HDD, all those connectors etc. But the open question for me is: HDD should be slim (7mm) or 9mm gonna work too? I have 9mm right now and if it's good I don't need to buy a new one. And is there chance to install another SDD as well? Should it be 7mm as well? And if so do I need to buy something different from those: Cable: 5C10K25544,   Tray:    5B40K25518 for the SSD? Thank you

I bought a Lenovo Y700-17ISK laptop. It is an outlet one. Already sold once and returnedy by someone. Unfortulately laptop crashes randomly several times a day and gives osme artifacts. Memory test stops at 21%. I'lI would like to check if it is really one of RAM (there is 2x8GB). I unscrewed housing and found there... GOODRAM memory. Is it possible that Lenovo gives that RAM? Or someone before me just bought this laptop to replace his damaged RAM with good ones and returned laptop?

Firstly, sorry for my English (I'm from Belarus) I have this laptop about 1 year. Every month i must change thermal paste. As soon as I applied the thermal paste, the temperature of the CPU and the GPU are good. Reach 75 degrees, but no more. Month later, i have 85-90 degrees at the CPU and 75-80 at the GPU. After a while, the CPU temperature reaches 99 and starts throttling. If I replace it again, good temperature come back. This happens in almost all games (Overwatch, Battlefield 4, GTA 5, CS GO (but this command helps me fps_max 120) at low-medium settings) Why? Manufacturer of thermal grease assures that it can not be changed for 5 years. Lenovo Y700-17ISK (i7 with gtx960m)BIOS v35Thermal grease - Arctic Cooling MX4No cooling pad, always on the desk

When running normal programs and scrolling through facebook or anything, doesn't really matter, the computer freezes. Mouse will contiune to move all over but no reactions to clicking on anything.  I have all the latest updates and BIOS. Windows 10 64. It has been doing it for awhile, but was hoping to see some updates for it since this PC is only 6 months old. I have only seen one forum item on this issue and basically it said to Start the recovery process again. I have already had to do this once for other reasons that fixed a problem. SHould not have to do that for each thing that goes wrong.The only way to fix the issue is to turn PC off and reboot using the off /on button.. It always comes back but at some point it will freeze again.Any help would be appreciatiated. Thanks

To get straight to the point, I have a Lenovo Y700-17ISK and it has a black screen when attempting to turn it on. The power button is lit, and the keyboard flashes once (keyboard turns off after flash) when initially pressing the power button. The only indication of it being on is the power button being lit. Hard Drive is not running, fans spins briefly (5-10 seconds), and the power button stays on. Is this motherboard failure? Thank in advance.

Hello, A couple of days ago I bought a new lenovo y700-17isk laptop. Just after windows 10 installation I started to get blue screens then using computer or even then I left pc idle. I updated all the latest drivers and updates but still the problem persists periodically. How this can be happening on a new laptop with fresh windows installed? I was reading that this might be because of the bios problem with these models(my bios version is CDCN27WW) and this is a well known issue for lenovo. I am wondering should I hope that this problem will be solved with bios update? or should I return this pc because I cant use it of bsod getting every hour. I tried to reinstall windows two times tried different version still the same..

Hi Forums, I already saw that I am not the only one who has a problem with the keyboard on a Lenovo laptop.My keyboard randomly stops working when I am in a game like League of Legends (i guess it happens only in games because I use the keyboard intensely then). I just want to check if anyone has the solution to this problem. I already invested many hours trying to solve the issue (eg reinstalled Windows) and my next step would be to send it back to Lenovo and let them repair it (maybe change the keyboard). Greetings, Leesinovo

Hello guys. I have Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17isk and when i buy it i have lags: Screen flicking. after two months of agony I solved the problem in the following way: 1. Im download Intel HD Graphics BETA driver on Intel site.2. Unistall current version, reboot laptop.3. Turn my internet connection off.4. Install BETA version of Intel hd graphics driver.5. Now screen flicking is gone. I dont have any lenovo software on laptop when do this actions. in windows has disabled the automatic loading of drivers and software for the devices. Windows 10 have been downloaded and installed again. That is, at the time of the fix I was not factory Windows, preloaded with drivers and software from Lenovo. Do not install software from Lenovo as this too can cause flickering in the model. You can put only the necessary drivers for the chipset, Nvidia graphics card, touchpad, camera and also to update the BIOS, worse than this model of laptop data items do not. The fact that the problem is related to the function of power-saving integrated graphics card (1 watt savings lol). This function was why removed it out of the panel Intel HD GRAPHICS, but some utilities, Lenovo is present and it can cause flickering. peace <3

Hi, Can the y700-17isk be used to connect with a 144hz monitor ?I understand there is no DVI, and I will be connecting through the HDMI.I am also not sure on the version of the HDMI. Please let me know if I can continue my search to purchase a 144hz monitor for a better gaming experience. CSGO gives me ~200 FPS on low settings. But these do not make much sense if the monitor itself is not supporting. Thanks,Chandan.

Hello community! I just wanted to share with you this problem I'm having and everyone is familiar with it, the issue here is that it's actually NOT the panel that it's faulty but the mount itself!  Please check out this video that I made that shows when the panel is unmounted, then I proceed to slide the panel up (mounted) and let it slide back down with gravity.I used some video effect to darken the scene so it's better noticeable. (though please notice filming backlight bleeding it's hard).Clearly the mount does not perfectly agree with the panel shape, so it is bent a little thus introducing backlight bleeding, and when I bend the mount (with panel mounted) slightly on the upper right and left sides to my direction like this "(", the bleeding is almost completely gone, so it seems that the mount is not straight but bend slight backwards like this ")" so I have to make it straight with my hands. What I have done to try and fix this is to put two folded pieces of paper on those sides as to try to straigthen the panel but that only slightly fixes the problem and I'm not too comfortable having those there either. (and I have already broken one of the teeny tiny hinges of the bottom plastic cover and also had to skip the middle screw for the panel because, with the papers, it introduced another bleeding on the bottom, so it's only screwed on the sides but not too tight either, just to hold it in place) What other possible solution do you guys see to this? (I... Read more

A:Lenovo y700 17isk backlight bleeding possible fixes

It's really hard to see it in the video by the way (but it is better if you watch it on fullscreen and 1080p), just trust me that when the panel is not mounted, there is barely any bleeding, just IPS glow. If you want me to upload the raw video I can do that aswell.

HELP!

A:Lenovo y700-17isk, you are not currently using a display attached to an nvidia gpu!!???!!!!????????

Nvidia GPU is render unit only, and will not work without Intel GPU. That is why you cannot turn the Intel GPU off... Or even you can tear the Intel GPU off, you will see nothing as Nvidia GPU cannot work without it. As solution, it maynot help much because I have Y50-70 (although, Y700-17isk is very close relative). I suggest using all driver from Lenovo website. And do not update any driver, other then windows update (it will update but not to newest). You can atleast trust Windows update as most of the driver that did not work will be reverse to the working one (suggest by community and collected data). If both solution still not work try newest driver from both Intel and Nvidia, remember to install Intel first before Nvidia to make sure Nvidia GPU can communicate with Intel GPU (via Intel driver, obviously).

Hi, I have 2 of these laptops and one has a battery problem. In Win10 it shows that it can only charge to 93%. I can leave it for few hours and it will still only say 93%. If I take power brick from the other (that can charge to 100%) charging stops at 94%. The light indicator is white when on 93% but the % in windows indicator is bothering (not to me, but to the user). I think that there is a problem in Win10 indicator (since light indicator lights white), but even formating (and converting from Legacy to EFI) didn't solved the problem. Is there a problem with battery? EDIT: At what % does LED turns from orange to white? I checked indicator for white LED when laptop was turned off and charging. So I can't confirm if it charged to 100% and if it charges to 100% when turned on.

Hello fellow Lenovo users, So I fiddled with the Lenovo settings and checked out the audio/media section. The Dolby Setting is really great for music etc. but when I enter a game, World of Warcraft or Counter Strike for example which are up to date games, the sound changes and it sounds really bad. The sound goes back to normal when I exit the game. It's like the setting is dynamic to what program I'm running or something. I even fiddled with some of the different settings like "Music" and "Dynamic", nothing worked. Hope you guys can help me since I really want that sound setting on since it sounds so great, but I have to turn it off due to low sound quality when opening up a game. - Mads
