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 got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

Hi,
I have Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK type/model 80Q700DRSC.
I want to update BIOS, so I downloaded D5CN47WW. In text file it is written that this is BIOS for my computer.
Everything seems fine but when I execute BIOS exe file it says that this is BIOS for Lenovo Paris 300 notebook!
What Paris now? I tried to google but only can find Paris in France.
I am user of Lenovo notebooks for many years (from IBM ThinkPads to this days) but when txt Readme file said
this is update for your computer, it was! This is confusing for me so I cancelled update.
Can anybody explain this mistery?
Thanks in advance

Hi all, I have a friend who has purchased a Lenovo Ideapad but it hasn't an ODD. It has space for one though. I've looked up the Service Manaul and it states 9mm options. Will a 9.5mm dvd drive fit into this slot or does it need to be a 9mm dvd drive? Just the cost of a 9.5mm drive is only £13 odd, where as a 9mm drive is £23.

Hi, I have been trying to install a fresh version of windows 7 64 bit on my laptop, but really getting nowhere. I copied the ISO on a USB flash drive using rufus: NTFS file system. My Setup configuration:USB Legacy - Enabled Boot Mode - Legacy SupportBoot Priority - Legacy FirstUSB Boot - Enabled On the Legacy options slightly lower down I see two option, SATA HDD and SATA ODD. I see nowhere to select USB drive as the boot option. When I enter boot menu my options are as follows: SATA HDD, SATA ODD, Windows boot manager with my SATA HDD name. I dont see a USB option to boot from? "Secure Boot" is an option mentioned in some forum posts, but I cannot find this option in my setup. Another thing I read was disabling USB from the boot exclusion list. This is another option I cannot find at all. The guide from lenovo site here https://support.lenovo.com/za/en/solutions/ht500207 shows a different BIOS menu that I see on my laptop. I just need a simple fix, why is this so complicated

Hello,My college son has an ideapad i5 Ultrabook. It would not boot so he took it to a shop near school who I think just used a USB deivice to get it to boot and reinstall the OS (updated to 10). I later discovered the HDD had failed and the OS was installed on the working SDD. The HDD is replaced and I can see it but the SDD is full and he keeps getting errors and it doesn't appear the HDD is really being used. My question; what is the correct relationship of the SDD and HDD? How do I get it back to the original configuration.

I have been having extra difficulty with normal processes on my ideapad as of late. It is an older model and, if I have to guess, I probably bought it about 4 or 5 years ago. There is a significant delay in the text box when writing emails, multiple video formats (youtube included) lag and pause frequently, and the scroll bar freeezes frequently as well. Is this some sort of issue with my operating system or possibly something with google chrome? I have been due to get a new laptop for a while but I am just trying to speed up the processes so they are at least managable until the upgrade. Thank you
