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 have a problem with my battery not charging (at 1% left and power connected) and get an error message that my battery is not recognized by Lenovo, even though it's the same battery I've had for 4 years (the laptop is as good as new, and I don't want to change it).Apparently, a BIOS update should work, according to several web forums, and it worked when I had the same problem some time ago. But since then I have updated to Windows 10 and I can't find any BIOS updates for my laptop which is compatible with windows 10. And those that are compatible with windows 10 are not compatible with my laptop. Will there ever be an update, or do anyone have another solution to my battery problem?INFO:Windows 10 Home 64 bitIntel Core i5-3337U 1.80 GHz8GB RAMCurrent BIOS id: 7ECN19WW

Hello So a while ago I posted about a problem I was having that caused my laptop(fairly new 1.5 months now) to randomly crash or go in a blacklit screen mode where the only option to get it working again is to hard reset it. I think a lenovo community memeber posted up a fix that i should download (Intel Management Enginer Hardware .. something like that). That fix did not work and then I tried the suggested method by a customer which only worked for a week. I also contancted lenovo and allowed them access to my computer and all that was done was updating the drivers.  My warranty is for a year and I would have to send it to get it fixed My questions are, is there anything else I can do myself to resolve this issue?If lenovo cannot solve this issue what can be done about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I just started university and I often find I fall behind on some programming for a course because I cannot bring my laptop to school as it is pretty much useless

I have a 500S-14ISK Laptop (ideapad). The other day it was doing an automated windows update. I realized the laptop was low on battery so I plugged in the charger, went out for lunch and hoped the update would be done once I came back. When I returned I realized that the charger was not connected to wall-socket so the laptop shut down in the middle of the update. Now I cant get it to start. If I push the power button, the power button lights up and so does the keyboard but the screen gets nowhere. I cant even come to the BIOS setup to do a factory reset. I tried removing the battery, holding the powerbutton for 30s and then put the battery back in. No luck. Did the same this with and without the charger caple attached. No luck. I also tried connecting the laptop to an external display. No luck.  Is there anything else I can try?

Hi, I've had an ideaPad 500s-14ISK for about 8 months now.About a month after I got it, it had a problem where in the middle of working, the screen turned grey, the computer became unresponsive (the backlight was still working) and the only option was to force it to restart.At first I didn't pay attention to it, as it happened about once in 2 weeks, but recently it got much worse, going unresponsive at least once in an hour, sometimes 2 or 3.I decided to try and install some driver updates to try and solve it. Display drivers didn't work, so I tried Power Management also (including the one which came out very recently) without success.2 days ago (my Friday evening) I decided to try a BIOS update, as nothing else more recent worked. I downloaded the update from the "Downloads" section on the Lenovo website, followed the exact instructions on the update and the txt file that came with it. The update started the BIOS flashing process, and guess what? Screen went grey and unresponsive.I waited for some time to see if something might happen, but nothing. I turned it off, and with that the BIOS went bad. Now it is totally bricked, it does try to accept USB when I turn it on with Fn+R+Power though.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have recently purchased a new laptop ideapad 500s. Since the day I bought it I am having internet connectivity issues. On system restart or when device is restored from sleep, the internet gets disconnected and a yellow asterisk appears on the WiFi connection in the status bar. On running windows diagnosis, the problem result says "DNS server isn't respnding". The only way the system does get connected to WiFi is if I restart my WiFi modem after the system has started. I have tried all solutions available online to fix the problem. I tried using static DNS entries, tried flushing DNS, updated my WiFi device driver, disabled sleep of the device in power management and even reset Windows using the option available in Windows 10. None of the above methods have helped me resolve the problem. Could this be a hardware problem in the laptop? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Ideapad 500s - graphics card issue

I've never owned a Lenovo laptop until recently, I've always bought my computers from Dell. However, a couple of week ago, I decided to purchase the Ideapad 500 and I'm already having an issue with the Intel Graphics Card. When I watch videos, like from YouTube, the images keep scrambling and there is a horizontal, white band of interference that keeps flashing at the bottom of the screen. I've even started getting the blue and black error screens. I ran the Lenovo Solutions Center app and got the same result. There was a failure with the Intel HD Graphics Card, "Mathematical Operations Test." Here is the Results Code: WVC007002-RK8WFH. I checked the Intel website for the latest version of the graphics card to see if mine is out of date, and it is. My version is 10.18.15.4279, which was released, 8/24/2015. The new version is 15.40.10.4300, which was released, 10/26/2015. The recommendations given by the Intel website for updating the driver, seem to address the issues I'm having with the blue and black screens. Anyway, since my driver is out-of-date, I downloaded and tried to install this latest one, but I got an error message, saying it must be done by the manufacture. I then checked Lenovo's website to see if they had it for downloading, but the only graphics card that Lenovo has available is out-of-date too. I have a two-year warranty, but I don't want to ship my laptop just to have my graphics card updated.

A:Ideapad 500s - Booting issue with USB connected

Hello woogdoe
 
Welcome to the forum,
 
By the sounds of it your pc may be stuck in the wrong boot mode (ie. boot from USB) so what i suggest is making sure you are in the right one. First you will need to access the BIOS then change the boot order. Follow the steps below to do this.
 
Turn off and use the Novo key (left side part number 7 page 9 ) 

It may also be like an indentation or a button and would need to use a pin to enable.
Check if you have the same on yours.  It has the USB port next to it.
When it turns on using that key, Novo Menu would show giving you the option for BIOS set up. 
 
Follow this link below to change the boot order:-

Hello, I am weighing up my options between purchasing an Ideapad 500s or a Thinkpad L460. I do a bit of video editing, and when I'm doing that kind of work I want to hook the laptop up to a 4k screen, (the extra pixels allow a much more efficient workflow). To connect to a 4k monitor at 60Hz I have read that I need a DisplayPort output (which I note that the 500s does not have), or an HDMI 2.0. I suspect that the Ideapad 500s does not have an HDMI 2.0 output, but I would be happy to be contradicted. Could someone please confirm this one way or ther other? Preferably if you could point me to some official documentation about the product which answers the question that would be great! If it does have an HDMI 2.0, I wonder if anyone has any idea how the nVidia chip would handle the 4k screen. I wouldn't be gaming or even doing and 3d modelling or rendering - just some HD video editing - so I expect it would be fine? Many thanks,Tom

A:Ideapad 500S-14ISK Black Screen after power on

Hi HK,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and try to access BIOS to reset it. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue.
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue
Now access the BIOS menu press ?F2? when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now Click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

 
I hope the above information helps.

A:IdeaPad 500S - Black Screen During Normal Work

Hi Yanov,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
A number of things can cause your screen to be blank. A suddenly black screen accompanied by what appears to be a completely unresponsive computer is, most often, a symptom that your computer has crashed.
 
And the most common cause of crashes is overheating
 
Your computer needs good ventilation to avoid overheating. Make certain that the ventilation holes aren?t blocked by dust or other debris. It can be due to running a CPU-intensive program or game continuously for a long time. If the latter is the case, you may need to take steps to provide extra ventilation, or cool the air flowing around or through your computer.
 
The graphics or video card can go bad, which may cause a blank screen.
 
Problems with the motherboard can cause a computer screen to go blank, as can a hard disk crash.
 
Try doing these things:
 
If your screen still doesn?t light up after cooling it down, connect your computer to a different power outlet and reboot the computer. If you have an extra monitor lying around at home, switch it with the current one to see if your monitor is bad.
 
If you recently made changes to the computer?s hardware, uninstall what was just added and restore the system. If this still doesn?t get your screen to work, try restarting it in safe mode. This can be done by pressing F8 once the computer begins to boot up. Select safe mode by using the arrow keys. This will bring t... Read more

Also, during the night the computer started making very loud beeping noises while switched off. I think it was three beeps and a pause. The power button lit up as well. I switched the computer on and there were no changed - everything works apart from the trackpad. Is it posdible to fix it somehow and what should I do?

When I hit the power button, the keyboard lights up, the power LED turns on, and I can hear the fan moving. The screen stays black when not plugged in, and very faintly flashes yellow when plugged in. It works fine when connected to an external moniter.

Hi everyone, the wifi connection on my Ideapad 500S-14ISK stops working when I connect to any external monitor via HDMI. I've had this problem eversince I've gotten this laptop.The wifi works fine, only when a monitor (either the TV or my external monitor, using different cords) is plugged in I lose my internet connection, even though it still shows full wifi connection. It works very briefly if I disconnect the wifi and connect again. Starting the computer while the monitor is already plugged in does not help. All drivers are up to date. Thanks in advance for all replies, I appreciate it.

Hi there! I got the following Question.I bought a new Lenovo  500S-14ISK 80Q300A4GE Ultrabook with i7-6500U Prozessor.The notebook makes some anoying fan sounds.From time to time in any powersetup other than minimum energy consumption the fan speed starts to fluctuate between around 60% to 100% instead of staying at a constant speed. It goes on for about 10min and than the fan goes back to idle. It happens althought the CPU is running at about 10 % for longer periods.Is this the desired behavior?Any ideas how to get rid of the pulsating behavoir, it is really anoying. Thanks for helpGreetingsAlex
