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 ive got a Lenove B540 and when I power on only get a black screen with pink lines thrue it. I tried connecting a 2nd screen to the hdmi but nothing. ive used another desktop and connected the ideacentre to it with the hdmi cable to the in... and the screen works fine but without the touch on the screen. I also bought a new cpu and its stil the same Ithought the display is working thru the cpu unit. I think its the display card and picked up from previous posts on this forum that the displaycard is intergrated with the motherboard. Just want to make sure before I buy the Motherbord if its possible that the lcd creen or pc bord could be the problem ? looking forward to hear from anyone

HI.
@Julius2 
 
To rule that is a hardware failure, if possible enter bios if once within the same image will appear black screen with the line that you mention it, it is a failure of the graphics chip.

Screen got cracked. Touch screen was obviously affected. Where the impact occured on the screen is where the laptop thinks someone is touching. Sent it into Best Buy and they quoted $720 to fix. Was hoping to find a compatable screen on Amazon that I could purchase and have Best Buy replace for $50. Any ideas? It's a Edge 15 Laptop model 80H1

Okay so like the title says I recently cracked my laptop screen and since I don't have any warranty I'm going to do the repair myself. My first question would simply be what parts do I need to buy? Looking at my laptop it appears that only the glass panel that goes over the digitizer is what got messed up. The LCD panel is fine and the touchscreen still works so I believe all I have to do is replace the front bezel? Is that possible or do I need to buy a whole new LCD panel to repair my laptop?  Besides two thin cracks going through the screen, most of what shatted was the top right bezel portion.  Please help me ! 

A:Lenovo Edge 2 -1580 Cracked Screen. What do I do?

The thing you call the front glass is the digitizer. There is a matrix of VERY fine wires running through the glass.  The whole screen is bonded together so you need to replace the whole panel.

So I now have a nasty cracky on the glass of my screen - top right and accross the middle.  The screen is still fully working, and touch screen also still works.  So what are my options... 1) Can I just replace the glass? If so, where do I find this product - No one sells it.2) Do I need to replace the entire screen (LCD and Digitizer) - Again no one sells it. Apparently it's a licensed product and no 3rd party suppliers have access to stock. Can anyone please help, and share any other options I have? Thank you so much in advance.

I purchased a new Lenovo 320 15 from best buy today. While loading programs I attempted to adjust the screen angle and immediately it cracked from the place where I touched the screen on the side. The computer was not dropped, hit, banged or anything. There is absolutely NO damage to the computer shell. If you opened another brand new one and place them side by side there'd be no difference. I could not believe a computer 6 could be this fragile. Neither BEST BUY OR LENOVO will cover the repair or replace. I would NEVER had bought this product if I'd known it was this fragile and cheaply made. I am beyond pissed about this waste of money!!

Hi, I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre A5 (refurbished) for 1 1/2 yrs now. A couple of days ago some problems occured. When I tried to put my computer in sleep mode, one or two seconds later it turned back on. So the sleep mode is not working anymore.  One or two days later the screen started to freeze!! Sometimes this happens right when I started the computer, sometimes after a few minutes or after one or two hrs. The only thing I am able to do when this happens is to exit via the power button since the touch screen doesn't work either.  In addition, two days ago I had a black screen when I tried to turn it on and a sad face popped up with the message that my disk needs to be scanned and repaired. This process took about 30 minutes and luckily I was able to start the computer again, but the screen freeze is still an issue and really annoying!!! Is there anything I can do to fix this? Note: I would need step by step instructions because I have NO knowledge about computer whatsoever!

A:Screen Freeze - Lenovo IdeaCentre A5 Series

This can be a result of a faulty update, or possibly a virus. I will suggest to perform a system restore. This won't wipe your personal files, it will restore to a previous point on your computer.  1. Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.2. Search Control Panel for Recovery.3. Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.4. Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select Next > Finish. Let me know if that helps.

I cracked my screen and replaced with a new one.   Now when I close the lid, it won't go to sleep; rather it goes to tablet mode.   I have to press the power button to make it go to sleep.   I put back the original screen and it goes to sleep as it should.   I've tried two different brand new screens and it will never go to sleep when closed.    Lenovo doesn't sell replacement screens so I'm forced to go to ebay or Amazon.   I have checked setting to make sure it goes to sleep when the lid closes.   The magnets are in the replacements.  Hmm, has anyone ever experienced this?  Any recommendations what to do?   Thank you for your input.

Hi, March of  last year (2016) I bought the Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 700 24" mainly because the clerk at BestBuy told me I could draw right on the screen with a stylus and that was not just on Sketchbook Pro 7 (bundled in) but with any drawing program. I called Lenovo at that time, they said the same thing.  I put it away as I had projects to complete and now have it set up, bought a Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition, which is great, but that stylus doesn't work on Sketchbook, or anywhere on the screen. Neither does my old little Bamboo Tablet's stylus. Wacom says, Oh, sorry, try another maybe. Lenovo said, only Wacom, then they realized my warranty or whatever had expired two weeks ago and wouldn't continue the conversation, stating if I were to purchase a new year, they could talk to me further, otherwise no. Nothing works and I cannot find any info....so here I am.Is there the functionality of drawing on my screen with a stylus of any kind at all? I know many are available but Wacom's are not compatible, and though I love my desktop, every reason I got it and the new $549.  Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition (great product) and all I actually wish to do is draw with a stylus on this screen. No info online, maybe there's an expert here!

Since I purchased this AIO I have had an issue with the screen going blank/black at random times from the first day. It came installed with windows 10 home, it was not updated to windows 10. At Idle it has done it also, but most of the time it is during game play, surfing the internet, watching videos.  The screen will go black for about 5 seconds and come back on.  Sometimes it will do it 2 or 3 times in a row one after another.  I have tried everything, disconnecting all usb, printers etc.  I have uninstalled all programs and also did a complete reset of the machine and it still happens. I also thought it was a heat issue and monitored the fans and temps, not overheating. I updated all the drivers and windows updates nothing works. I am not sure if its a windows 10 problem or a hardware problem.  below is the specs: i7 6700gtx1080256 ssd2tb hd27 inch LED panelwindows 10 home Has anyone experienced this or have a fix.

More specifically this one: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/H110M-A/specifications/I did a rough measuring of my stock motherboard's sides and it seemed like it was around 9.6x9.6 which makes it a microATX, I think. I need to upgrade my motherboard before I can upgrade anything else on the computer and the fact that the stock motherboard and PSU are proprietary worries me that the case might not have the correct standoffs or screw locations to support other boards.

I've only had the AIO for about 3 weeks and about half a dozen times during that period it has just powered off and restarted while in the middle of using it. It's happened just browsing, playing a game online and even working offline on a spreadsheet. When it did it today, I opened up the Lenovo Companion app on restart and noticed the last time it did a system update scan was two minutes ago, about when it powered off. Is it possible that this was the cause? Have others seen this same issue? If this is the problem, what can I do? Rather not send it back but I shouldn't be having issues like this with a 3-week old machine. Everything else with it seems fine.
