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.)

I tried turning on my ideapad one morning and it came up with the message "Your PC did not start up correctly". I tried factory reseting it and it ran into a storage problem. I also have tried hard reseting it by disconnecting the battery and cable and holding down the power button for 20 seconds and that didn't work either any ideas?

Hello,after last Windows update my touchpad gets disabled when laptop is on battery, when it's plugged in and charging everything works well. I can enable touchpad with shortcut on F6 key, but after few seconds of not using the touchpad, it disables by itself. I also noticed that I can enable touchpad by clicking the physical left or right click below it, but not by tapping the touchpad. Also, I think it has something to do with Power Management, but when I go to Manage->Device Manager->Mice and pointing devices->HID-compliant mouse and go to Properties, I don't have the Power Management tab there. Drivers are up to date, and there are no mouse drivers on Lenovo support page. I ran out off ideas, any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

TLDR: the 100s-11iby has a UEFI only 32-bit BIOS.  Bootable install media has to be UEFI and 32 bit which is a rare combination.

I recently just got a new Ideapad 100s and I have Windows 10 currently installed on the computer. I want to start using Linux, but I can't seem to boot the OS from my USB key. I have reached the BIOS on the computer, but there seems to be minimal options for the user to change. Below are links to two images of how the BIOS and Boot Menu look like currently. As you can see, the USB option is not available in the Boot Menu. Can someone instruct me on which settings I should change in order to start using Ubuntu?

Hello, Some time ago, I purchased a Lenevo Ideapad 100s. When it arrived, I immediately plugged it in and set it up. Everything works when it is plugged in, but when I click on the battery icon (it has a white x on it), it says "no battery present", when I just slide my mouse over it, it says "no battery is detected". I have checked, and there is a battery( I didn't have a warranty on it), so what is the problem, and how can I fix it? Thank you

I have just bought the above, which advertises "long battery life", however when fully charged it tells me I only have 2hrs 55minutes of charge, then if I have my usual programs turned on (such as Lenova or Cloud etc), it tells me even less.Right now I only have my anti-virus going, and it is 2hrs 42mins, with 89% charge.    This is not what I paid for or whatis advertised.   Am I doing anything wrong here, or do I have a lemon??

The kids let their laptop run all the way down, and now we can't get it to boot back up. It's been plugged in and the battery light is on, going from orange to white, but otherwise there's no sign of life at all. No noise, no screen flicker, etc.
 
I've read through posts describing similar problems and seen suggestions to remove the battery, but this unit doesn't have a removable battery. I've also seen various suggestions to hold down the power button while unplugged or try the Novo button, and have tried both with no luck.
 
Is there any other way to bring this brick back to life?

Hi smcindoe,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
I would encourage you calling in technical support for inwarranty repair.
The hardware manual here do offer power checkout guide (page 21-22) to help isolate the ac charger but since it can charge the battery from purple to white, then internal parts should be checked further.
 
I hope this helps you on how to proceed.
Update us how it goes best for you.

Hi.
I bought an Ideapad 100S-14IBR in september 2016 and its battery has been greatly reduced since last year. I could stay unplugged at least 5 hours with internet switched on or 8 hours with everything switched off and low luminosity. Now I struggle to get more than 3 hours with everything off. I tried recalibrating the battery, hasn't proved useful.
 
I haven't abused the battery, I use my computer on average less than once a day, I don't leave it plugged. On my battery report I have 22 000 mWh out of 33 000 mWH design capacity. This is really annoying since I need to bring this computer to study at school but it can barely made it. Does anyone have an explanation ? Otherwise I would like to know if the warranty (which is still active) covers a battery replacement ?  
 
Thanks

Hello, I bought this Ideapad 14IBR on friday and the battery will not hold a charge and it has been at 0% since i bought it. any idea why this is ahppening. do I need to take it back and get another one?

A:Brand New Ideapad 100s 14IBR battery not charging

Well, The battery most likely is Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) and either have been a production defect; or have not been properly charged at the factory; or have been drained completely, been sitting for a long time, then as a result have suffered damages to the chemical bits inside. You may have to return only the battery to the store (If accessible to remove form outside/If not internal) , unless they tell you to bring something else in addition. Sincerely Cklone.

Hi everyone, my 100s Ideapad recently had a charging issue where it won't charge unless you cram it in. So, I ordered a new charger off of Amazon with the same output voltage. However, when I plug the charger in, it doesn't show the charging light or turn on. I tried unplugging the battery and holding the button down, but it didn't work. The gold part inside the charging port is loose, I think that's what's wrong. Does anyone have any fixes?

Hi All, According to Lenovo's website the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-11lBY Storage is 32 GB / 64 GB eMMC. My storage says 29.1GB total. Does that simply mean that they developed versions that had 29.1 GB available, that I am missing an update, that I need to upgrade, or something else? I did my disk clean up to remove older versions of Windows 10, have the defrag set to weekly auto, try to keep the files saved to it to a minimum, and removed XboxApp, but it's hard working with only 29.1 GB.

Dear community, After 15 months of usage, my Ideapad 100s' batteries did the "balloon stunt". For now, I disposed of the swollen battery pack and consider whether I want repair/a new battery pack. In the meanwhile, it would be nice if I could use the notebook via the mains power only - but it won't turn on. Would anyone perchance know, whether the Ideapad 100s could - at least in principle - run in the absence of a battery pack via its (5V 4amp) external power supply, assuming that all other components are present and functional? Or does the Ideapad 100s run exclusively from the battery in any circumstance? (If it should be able to run from the mains, it might be worthwhile to look for a different power supply.) Thank you very much for your help! Best, Martin

hi, I just bought a new ideapad 100s-14ibr 5 days ago [4-24-2017], I noticed seomthing about the battery life that gave me a hunch: Usually when unboxing a new laptop smartphone, etc., it comes with 40-70% of charge from the factory as industry practice. My laptop had 0% charge and could not power on until after 35 minutes of charging.(lithium-ion batteries only lose only about 1-2% of charge per month in storage. Usually a lituim-ion battery that loses its charge (or doesnt hold its charge) is defective.) My laptop only holds a charge for 5 hours on 75% brightness. Im concerned as most review sites, testers and many credible sources indicate that this laptop has a 7+ battery life and some have even got uo tp 9 hours of battery time. Please let me know if this is normal, if this battery life of 7+ hours is reached only on lowest brightness, etc. Because one tester indicated they reached 7 hours of battery on highest brightness and another had the same time with 70% brightness looping a video. any help/feedback is very helpful as quickly as possible. I have a small window to return laptop for an excange. i dont want a refund as this machine exceeded my expectations in performance and other areas. But I need a laptop that give me a ChromeBook battery life of 7-8+ hours but the flexability of having Windows 10.

First off, I'm going to say this laptop was a Christmas gift from a friend. I do not have ANY computers in this house aside from this one. I use this laptop for blogging and listening to music as well as job hunting, however, it will not register the keyboard or touchpad at all. I called Customer Support and the best answer they could give me was to bring it back to the store I got it from--this was an incompetent answer to the problem. I have tried touching and holding the power button for 15 seconds and when it restarts, the problem is not fixed. None of the keys are working. Period. I have a mouse for a gaming computer, however, I do not have a keyboard to plug in to use. If I could get a response to this, that would be GREAT!!! I cannot log in or do anything with my lap top right now and am currently stuck doing things from my cell phone.
